SARASOTA COuNrf EDITOR

For Laurel resident John
Ware, getting on Laurel Road
now is difficult. WVith the
prospect of a new north-south
artery connecting Venice from
Pinebrook Road to Sarasota,
\Vare wonders how he'll han-
die the increased traffic.
"What will happen when
there's another accident on
interstate) 75?" he asked. "I
have a hard enough time now
getting on Laurel Road."
Last summer, residents in
North Port and as far away as


Englewood felt the affect of
such an interstate accident
when a tanker trmck exploded
taking out a bridge and result-
ing in traffic being diverted to
U.S. 41 and State Road 776.
Ware was among almost
120 South Counry residents
who attended a public hear-
ing Tuesday night at Laurel
Nokomis School to offer com-
ments about the proposed
extension of Honore Avenue
and Pinebrook Road by
Sarasota County government.
Approximately a half dozen
offered public testimony,
while many others submitted


written comments on the
project.
County officials say this
road will serve as an alterna-
ive north-south route to U.S.
41 and Interstate 75.
Start date
Construction is not slated
to begin until 2010 when the
state begins to widen the
interstate. The 3.8-mile, four-
lane road would run approxi-
mately along the interstate
from Laurel Road north to
State Road 681.
The new road will include
sidewalks on both sides, bike
lanes and a raised median,
according to the county's con-
sultant. Robert Fakhri of Wil-

Good morning, Gondolier
Sun subscriber,
ROBERT KWAPIL


Thirty-five-year-old
eyes normally don't see
trenches filled with dead
bodies. Nor do 35-vear-
olds encounter death sev-
en times in less than three
weeks.
Nokomis resident Ste-
phen Clark did.
For eight months and 14
days, Clark, an enlisted
Navy Seabee, lived, ate and
occasionally bathed in
Iraq, an area he wasn't even
supposed to revisit for the
second time.


Clark served in Kosovo
during the Persian Gulf
War. The same patriotism
that led him there in the
early 90s took him to Iraq
in 2004.
"I've always been a pat-
riotic person," said the
soft-spoken Clark, who is
known by other Seabees as
Tank. "My guys call me
Tank because I was 40
pounds heavier when I
left."
His build helped him
over the years in construc-
tion. Today, he works as
facilities manager for
schools in South Sarasota


County.
Mobilized
Clark was one of 400
Seabees mobilized to the
sands of Iraq.
They flew into Kuwait,
where they stayed for two
weeks. Then it was on to
Iraq for a six-month stay.
The troops were split up
and sent to different areas
of the country.
Clark, who describes
himself as the quintessen-
tial tough guy, is now more
emotional than before he

-James Olson-was the city's
finance director for just more
than five weeks.
It took him more than five
months to explain why he
quit without notce Aug. 9.
A two-page letter arrived in
the mail last week for council
members and charter offi-
cers. The letter was to "clarify
any misconceptions regard-
ing why I chose to leave,"
Olson said. No apology was
made for quitting without
notce.
Olson never resigned from
his former job with the city of
Jamestown, N.Y. when he
accepted the Venice position.
He walked into City Manager
Nlarry Black's office on a
Monday and abruptly quit,
citing personal reasons.
Olson's wife, Pam, also quit
without notce as a special
education teacher Aug. 9 at
Venice High School the

first day of classes.
When contacted for com-
ment, Olson avoided saying
whether an apology was war-
ranted.
"I believe my letter ex-
pressed my appreciation for
being selected for the posi-
tion, and my regret that a
long-term relationship did
not work out," Olson said.
Council reaction
This was the first direct
contact with council mem-
bers since Olson quit. The
August resignation letter did
not state a reason and it took
a day of messages from May-
or Dean Calamaras to find out

left. He can rattle off the
names of places most only
hear about on CNN Fallu-
jah, Balaad, Alasaad air base.
As Alpha Company's oper-
ations chief, Clark was re-
sponsible for overseeing
everything the unit was do-
ing. Alpha Company was the
mobility part of the battalion.
Navy Seabees act as the
Navy's construction work
force. Seabees normally don't
see much combat. Clark's
unit did.
"In three weeks, 10 percent
of our unit was killed or
wounded," Clark said. "The
Marines couldn't believe it.
That's the first time Seabees
had those kind of losses. We
didn't want 'to make those
kind of records."
Seven killed in three weeks.
One was Clark's dear friend,
Ronald Ginther. Thirty to 40
people were wounded. He's
lost almost all his hearing in
his right ear, but doesn't know
the cause.
Asked what Ginther would
say about the war, Clark
replied, "He would probably
say he would do it again if he
was asked. That's the kind of
guy he was."
No reports
You probably didn't hear
stories like Clark's on the
evening news. Collecting evi-
dence against Saddam Hus-
sein is just one.
Clark learned that the U.S.
Justice Department needed
help. The job entailed scour-
ing the desert for three weeks.
"If I'm going to send my
guys," said Clark, "I'm going
to be crew leader."
People assisting the Ku-
waiti government helped
Clark and his colleagues iden-
tify mass graves. Three graves
were found.
One, a misty-eyed Clark
said, brought the war a little
too close to home.
"We found a 14-year-dld


boy," Clark said. "It made me
mad at first. I've got a son
that's 13. I just kept thinking
the good part is that we were
able to give them back to their
families."
They returned the bodies
of 85 Kuwaiti nationals to
their loved ones. The Kuwaiti
government, Clark said, be-


deaths of those found in the
other trench.
"We kind of figured they
had their throats cut," he said
softly. "These people were
going to be used as human
shields. When they weren't
needed, they were executed.
It's a bad place. It's like the Old
West."


Brian had been on strike
for his dad. He decided not to
cut his hair until Clark came
back home.
"He looked like Cousin It,"
Clark said remembering the
famous Addam's Family char-
acter. "I let it go a week, then I
took him to a barber."
Clark is now home with

MORE ABOUT STEVE CLARK
Steve Clark served in the Navy Seabees in Iraq. Since he returned, he has been asked all kinds of ques-
tions. Here are his responses to the most common ones:
Should the U.S. be in Iraq?
"My personal opinion is that Saddam and his administration needed to be removed. Now that we're
there, there's no way we can pull out."
Will the United States bring back the draft?
"I've done a lot of reading. It could (happen) but a lot of politicians don't want to touch that hot pota-
to."

Informants would point to'
an uncovered desert area that
hadn't been touched in more
than 10 years, Clark said.
The blood was black in the
trenches. People were found:
still clothed. Their shoes were
off. Their hands were bound.
One trench revealed bodies;,
with obvious head trauma.

only speculate over the

like to think we'd (his unit
would) be left alone."

City: Wharf



expansion



not our fault

An amendment to the city's land use map
sparks resident concerns about what will be built
next to the Hatchett Creek Bridge.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

Over and over again; Ven-
ice City Council members
reminded residents they.have
no jurisdiction over a 400-.
foot dock at Fisherman's
Wharf or the owner's right to
fill in a half acre of boat bas-
ins with dirt.
All of that was decided at
the county or state levels the
past two-plus years and was.
out of their hands.
Venice resident Ernest Za-
vodnyik isn't buying it. While
it didn't have jurisdiction,
council never took a stance
and that's as good as endors-
ing it, he told them.
"Seems to me the cat is
out of the box here now the
dock has been approved,"
Zavodnyik told council. "You
people want to have it both
ways, but there was no one.
from the city at those (Sara-
sota County) hearings, (for
dock approval). And now,
you're here washing your
hands of it."
Council knew about both.
issues because the matter
was before them for a vote
Dec. 10, 2002, as part of a
land use issue. That coun-
cil heard first reading,
but postponed a vote on
approval until both the
county and state had
reached decisions.


Sarasota County commis-
sioners have final say when it
comes to shoreline and dock
developments. In July, county
commissioners approved a
400-foot dock with 11 fewer
slips than owner John Ko-
necnik wanted.
Konecnik was pushing for
a nearly 700-foot dock be-
fore being denied by commis-
sioners as more than 50
Harbor Lights, residents -
Fisherman Wharf's next-door
neighbors showed up to'
protest.
Only council member Vicki
Taylor directly addressed Za-
vodnyik's comments, Taylor,
was on council last summer
.and said she did not receive
a single comment or concern.
about the dock.
Actually, she didn't even
know Sarasota County was
considering its approval. Tay-
lor was not on council in
2002, when the proposal first
came up.
"I didn't hear from any
resident (last summer) about
the dock while the hearings
were going on," Taylor said.'
"If you have concerns, make
sure we know.".
Council member Rick Tacy
did say city council decided
two years ago not to take
sides.
!'We basically- took the
stance it wasn't up to us to
tell the state and county what

City council approved changing future land use maps from marine to commercial Tuesday. State officials will allow more than a
half acre of marina, pictured.above, to be filled in with dirt at the Fisherman's Wharf.


to do," Tacy said.
Change granted
The amendment was
granted Tuesday by a 6-0
vote. Vice Mayor John Moore
was absent.
Now that the area is
changing from water to dirt,
its zoning needs to go that
way.Land use map designa-
tions will allow the zoning to
be changed to commercial
at a later date to match the
surrounding wharf property.
Konecnik plans to devel-
op the property for residen-
tial and commercial uses
and apply for a special
exception to exceed 35 feet
in height. Commercial zon-
ing would allow up to 18
units per acre, and redevel-
opment would include the
two basins; Fisherman's
Wharf restaurant and Gulf
Liner Marine building.
There are no pending
building permits or special


exceptions because Konecnik
withdrew them all two years
ago. Previously, he was ask-
ing for a 12-story condomini-
um building.
Konecnik still must apply
and then go through Venice
Planning Commission for up-
dated zoning and then.build-
ing approval.
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
issued a permit allowing
Fisherman's Wharf to recon-
figure and expand the exist-
ing marina, fill in the boat
basins, install new and
replace existing sea walls, and
construct new docks and fin-
ger piers at the marina.
With DEP's permits. Sara-
sota County now has juris-
diction in deciding what-
these marina features will
look like.
City council only has say
over the land areas which
the DEP permits will allow to
be created.


Other news
,Also at Tuesday's council
meeting:
Council learned that a
6,000 gallon water tank was
installed Tuesday at the for-
mer Stay-N-Play RV Park for
displaced hurricane victims
staying there. The tank is for
fire protection and was re-
quired by, the city because
there are inadequate fire hy-
drants. J&J Homes and Fed-
eral Emergency Manage-
ment Agency had to provide.
the added protection in
order to have :city permits,
for use extended.
Hoskins annexation -
council approved annexing
nearly 10 acres of property,
owned by Boyd and Evelyn
J. Hoskins, at. 2203 Knights
Trail .Road The property is
developed as a single-family
residence. Future develop-


,,ment plans.were not stated
in die preannexation agree-
ment.


The budget on the Ven-
ice Community Center pro-
ject was increased to reflect
a $100,000 award from the
Selby Foundation and
$5,000 from Sarasota
County. The total budget for
the project now is at almost

School board sets



legislative agenda


Butts still OK on


beaches


BY ANGELINE TAYLOR
STAFF WRITER


The Sarasota County
School Board resolved to
work more closely with local
legislators to give schools'
big ticket items a louder
voice during the upcoming
session.
The board approved the
2004-05 legislative platform
last week. Eight school issues
were discussed during a
workshop prior to the board
vote.
The issues included items
of major concern for Sarasota
County voters:
Aligning the state's testing
standards to federal standards
in the No Child Left Behind
Legislation.
Amending state require-
ments for facilities to reflect


the class size and universal
prekindergarten amend-
ments, and fully funding fa-
cility and capacity needs.
Repealing the state-man-
dated career ladder program
because it is unfunded.
Funding an annual cost
of living adjustment based
on student allocation in the
Florida Education Finance
Program.
Supporting Gov. Jeb.
Bush's proposal for an in-
crease in work force educa-
tion funding.
Restoring funding for
middle school career and
technical programs.
Establishing a uniform
process for salaries of all state
constitutional officers.
Allowing school boards
the option to levy additional
millage for up to 10 years with


voter approval.
Three of the eight issues
have caused small-scale con-
troversies for the school board
- the referendum, school
board salaries and differing
educational measurements
for state and federal assess-
ments.
By aligning the state's
standards to the No Child
Left Behind Legislation, the
Sarasota County school dis-
trict could potentially rid it-
self of headaches involving
the failure of meeting ade-
quate yearly progress. AYP
failure rates are prevalent
even among schools that
have earned the state's top
grades.
"Texas and Florida have
the hardest standards," said
Laura Benson, school board
member.


Before implementing a ban, the county
is going to try an education program
to encourage smokers not to litter.


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


There will be no legal ban
against smoking at public
beaches in Sarasota County -
but that could change.
For the moment, by con-
sensus, commissioners agreed
to follow a wait-and-see ap-
proach as county staff con-
ducts an education program
to make the public aware of
the problem.
Smokers who dispose of
their butts by leaving them
on the beach are creating lit-
ter and causing potential
problems for animals along
the beach was the common


refrain from residents who
attended a public meeting in
Venice last fall about a pro-
posed ban.
"I'm willing to give it a try,"
said commissioner Jon Thax-
ton, "but I don't think it will
work."
John McCarthy, general
manager of Parks and Rec-
reation, said receptacles have
already been placed at all-
public beaches and anti-
littering signs will be going up.
The issue was raised by
commissioners during an
annual report by the Parks
Advisory and Recreation
Council.
Last year, they asked coun-


cil members to study
the issue along with mem-
bers of the Keep SarasoAa
County Beautiful Advisqry
Board after Donald Fleming
of that board told commi-
sioners that butts on the
beach were a problem. ,o
After conducting two pu-
lic meetings, the two boards
issued a report last November
endorsing a wait-and-see ap-
proach. ,
Dren Geer, chair of the
council, said his group would
continue to: monitor the issue
during the year and' planned
to meet with the Keep Saga-
sota County Beautiful Advis-
ory Board in September 4o
consider what progress hgd
been made,
Geer said the boards
planned to give commission-
ers a progress report after
that meeting.


Commissioners continue talks on affordable housing
Commissioners continue talks on affordable housing :
ntinu tals -o


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


With housing prices con-
tinuing to escalate, Sarasota
County commissioners will
again discuss the impact of
these prices on the ability to
maintain a stock of affordable
housing.
During the Wednesday
afternoon session of their
meeting, commissioners will
meet with staff from the
Community Housing Team to
discuss existing programs
and staff recommendations
to maintain affordability.
According to a memo from
La:ry Arnold, .manager of the
county's Community Devel-


opment Department, many
developers are leery of pro-
viding affordable housing
without some mechanism "to
insure that the units would
be used by the households
they were intended to serve."
Price, and the possibility of
investor speculation, are the
two drawbacks affecting the
county's ability to maintain a
stock of affordable homes.
Prices doubled
Last November, Wendy
Thomas, a senior county
planner, presented informa-
tion to commissioners depict-
ing sales data for single-family
homes in the county since
1996. Thomas' chart showed


C ipjfi~fi be., d


that the .average sales price
had increased from $150,000
in 1996 to more than $300,000
in 2004.
Conversely, average wages
in the county, according to
the federal Bureau of Labor
Statistics, remained fairly
stable, going from $23,500 in
1996 to about $32,000 in
2004.
"So we're going from a
rapid, dramatic increase in
price with only a small, in-
crease in income," said com-
missioner Jon Thaxton, a for-
mer realtor, upon seeing the
data. "That amounts to mini-
mal buying power."
In his memo, Arnold
mentioned that Montgomery

County, Md., which runs one
of the most successful afford-
able housing programs in the
country, required that homes
in the stock remain affordable
for a 10-year period.
"Of the (almost) 11,000
units developed over the past
30 years under their program,
only 3,805 remain affordable
today," Arnold wrote in his
memo.
The low number of afford-
able units remaining led
Montgomery County officials
in December to increase the
time period for maintaining
affordability to 30 years.
Buying 10 years
As Sarasota embarks upon


its own affordable housing
program, Arnold and staff
are recommending that
rental projects using public
funds remain affordable for
five years, with no change
to the 50-year requirement
for bond-funded rental pro-
jects. For projects using
public funds or programs to
subsidize the cost of dwell-
ing units, staff is recom-
mending an affordability
period of 10 years with specifi-
cations governing what hap-
pens if the property is sold
prior to the expiration of 10
years.
Commissioners will meet
at 9 a.m. Wednesday in com-
mission chambers in the


County Administration Cen-
ter, 1660 Ringling Blvd., Sai6-
sota.
In addition, Access Sara-
sota Channel 19 will carry the
meeting live in its entirety fr
viewing by Sarasota Counjy
residents and will repeat the

Mayor questioned about hiring delay


Council members want to know
why it's taking so long to find
a new finance director.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
NEWS EDRTOR
: Venice has been without
'a full-time finance director
'since Mike McPhail's replace-
rhent abruptly quit without
notice.
;' One council member sug-
gested the mayor is dragging
-the process out, while another
-member continues pushing to
"amend the city charter so the
finance director is a regular
employee rather than a char-
"ter officer.
' It's been more than five
-months since James Olson,
I-McPhail's replacement, quit,
- nd council member Rick Tacy
Wants. to know why there
hasn't been a single prospect
Brought in front of him.
"We're sure letting this
,thing drag on an awful long
-time," Tacy said at Tuesday's
council meeting. "When are
we going to move forward on
-this?"
Mayor Dean Calamaras is
in charge of finding a replace-
ment charter officer, and he
said he should have someone
soon in about two months.
_The process was stopped a
couple of weeks ago and the
advertisement removed from
the city's Web site.
STalk was of offering the
,,position to Acting Finance
director r JoAnne Lounsbury,
,'tut Calamaras has since


backed off that prospect and
said she must be considered
just like any other applicant.
Lounsbury does not have a
college diploma, and the job
requires a bachelor's degree
in finance or accounting.
"She's still in the running,"
said Calamaras, adding that
the process is "not going to
take that long."
The search
Calamaras said the list of
at least 43 resumes already
received will be reconfirmed,
the job description and salary
offering reviewed, and the
job readvertised throughout
February. Currently, a person
has to have a four-year de-
gree and the maximum salary
offering was $75,000.
Salary offering is a big con-
cern. McPhail retired after 12
years and was making about
$80,000 a year. His replace-
ment, James Olson, was hired
at $75,000 before quitting for
his old job and its lower
cost of living in Jamestown,
N.Y.
City Manager Marty.Black
said the advice being offered
by every outside group is the
salary needs to be increased.
Venice could wind up paying
an unproven, new finance
director $10,000 or more per
year than McPhail was mak-
ing at retirement just to fill
the position.


"That's sticker shock for
the city," Black said.
Calamaras has said he's
unhappy with the current
bunch of applicants and that
many of them are unquali-
fied, even though 36 have
bachelor's degrees in account-
ing or finance, 24 have gov-
ernment finance and budget
experience, 19 have a master's
degree in business adminis-
tration, and nine are certified
public accountants.
There are at least 50 appli-
cations already on file.
One fewer officer
Council member John Sim-
monds continued his push to
amend the city's charter so
the finance director becomes
a city manager's office em-
ployee. Simmonds believes
people are not applying out
of fear council members
could fire a finance director
without recourse.
Venice is one of the few
Florida cities in which the
finance director is a charter
officer. This means no con-
tract or guaranteed salary if
fired without cause.-
However, Tacy pointed out,
keeping the finance director
and city manager as equal
charter officers presents
them from "cooking the num-
bers." The finance depart-
ment is outside of the city
manager's control and inde-
pendent of that person's influ-
ence.
"Before we go that way, we
need to have a full community
debate," Tacy said. "But that's
an entirely separate issue."

All of the Venice Moose
Lodge members are comfort-
ably relocated to their new
home at 111 North Auburn
Road, and they have been for
some time.
Hopefully, none of them
are planning on a trip to their
old lodge building to remi-
nisce. It was demolished this
week to make way for the
Waterfront on Venice Island's
latest addition a third eight-
story tower.
Waterford Communities
Inc. is in the midst of rede-
veloping nearly the entire
area inside the borders of
Venice Avenue Bridge, U.S. 41
Business and the Intracoastal
Waterway.
The land deals were con-
tingent in part on Waterford
Communities Inc. building
replacement facilities, like the
Moose Lodge's new home. The
American Legion's new post is
expected to be done by Aug-
ust, and a new Elks Lodge in
September.
Additional demolition be-
tween the Hatchett Creek
Bridge and Venice Avenue
Bridge will take place in phas-
es throughout the year after
the newAmerican Legion and
Elks facilities are constructed.

The former Moose Lodge on Tampa Avenue is demolished to
make way for the Waterfront on Venice Island's latest addition
- a third eight-story tower.


The Amoco and former
Burge properties, 248 and 238
North Tamiami Trail, respec-
tively, will be demolished
next.
Waterfront on Venice
Island, once finished, will
have three, eight-story con-
dominiums with 96 total
units next to the Intracoastal
Waterway along Tampa Ave-
nue's north side, and a park-


ing garage, mixed-use retail
and condominium center,
and open green space be-
tween Tampa Avenue and the
Venice Avenue Bridge.
One tower is basically
complete, and'" the second is
well along in the construction
phase. In the works for more
than three years, the project
is on schedule, WCI owner
Mike Miller said last month.

mett said there is no way he'd
vote in favor of bringing him

is, someone who quits with-

of working here."

him at $75,000 a year to re-
place Mike McPhail, who
retired after 12 years.
In his letter, Olson quashes.
rumors he quit the Venice job
because he was unhappy
with city council and man-
agement. He points to the
inability to sell his.home in
Jamestown after being in
Venice for five weeks as too
much of a financial strain.
No one on city council or
management was aware of
this until after Olson quit, and
the former finance director
did not ask for help, accord-
ing to iteniews.


As for not resigning from
his old job, Olson claims it
was because of health insur-
ance costs. He writes that
Venice coverage would not
have started until Aug. 1, and
temporary insurance cover-
age for his family of five
would have cost $1,000 for a
month if he resigned in
Jamestown.
So he asked for an unpaid
leave of absence, and James-
town Mayor Sam Teresi grant-
ed it. Teresi, a Democrat, was
elected in 2000 and created
the finance director position
for Olson after a Republican

JWHY FLOSS?
Flossing your teeth should be painless. If flossing hurts, it means that
too much pressure is being applied the wrong way. When you begin to
regularly floss your gums may bleed. This occurs because bacterial
plaque, which your toothbrush has been unable to remove, has
irritated and inflamed the gum tissues. As plaque is removed and
prevented from re-forming by repeated flossing, the tissues become
healthy and bleeding ceases. Don't stop when you see.some blood on
the floss. Continued flossing will help end the bleeding by.eliminating
the inflammation that causes it.
Flossing may cause an unpleasant taste and smell as food debris that
have decomposed are removed. No matter how thoroughly you brush,
only flossing or water irrigation can clean these inaccessible surfaces
and reduce unpleasant mouth odors. Since many bacteria thrive on
these same food we eat, removal of bacterial plaque prevents not only
gingivitis and periodontal disease but also dental decay.

mayor had fired Olson in
1994 as city clerk.,
"I therefore want you to
know, in all honesty that it
was not my intent to return to
my position in Jamestown
but to begin a new career in
Venice," Olson wrote to coun-
cil. "For some to think like-
wise should only speak to my
wife who handled the enor-
mous task of preparing the
house to move, saying good-
bye to our friends and ulti-
mately traveling to Venice
with three children to begin a
new life there."
For Hammett, much of the


frustration comes down to
how Olson handled the situa-
tion. No one in Venice knew
he was still a Jamestown
employee after being hired.
Add to that the fact Olson
never asked anyone inVenice
for help and quit without no-
tice, and there are still some
hard feelings.
"That's just not right, quit-
ting like that," Hammett said.
"That's just common cour-
tesy."

Indians hold on for tough win at Sarasota Christian


CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Why not to


root for


the Patriots

With the combatants now
known for Super Bowl XXXIX
in Jacksonville, it's time for
the traditional hype to start
heating up.
Everything I've seen and
heard so far translates into
the Eagles having no chance
whatsoever.
They might as well not
even show up.
S The hubbub centers
around the NFC being way
inferior. You hear it on the
sports talk shows. You hear it
on the street. You hear it in
the bars.
The last time I checked,
the NFC is still part of the
NFL. It's all one big league,
isn't it?
Then you hear that the
Patriots are untouchable.
They're a dynasty.
What was the score of
the Monday night game in
Miami?
Enough's enough. The Eag-
les are going to win the Super
Bowl.
To balance thescalesofjus-
tice, I have come up with eight
great reasons not to cheer for
the Patriots., , 4
1. Bill Belichick's hair. He
may be a great coach, but
he's got to do something
with that wild weed growth
spilling out of that headband.
2. Tom Brady. He could
be mistaken for one of the
Osmond brothers. Plus, he's
a big Dubya supporter. Gag
me with a spoon.
3. No more Pat Patriot.
The old helmet was classic
with minuteman Pat hiking
the ball. It was way cool.
We're talking Jim Nance,
Nick Buoniconti, Gino Cap-
pelletti and Babe Parilli. The
new: logo looks like it was
designed by a corporate
geek. Did you ever see the
First National Bank logo?
4. There never would have
been a Super Bowl ring in
2002 if'the refs had made
the right call in that snowy
AFC Championship game
against Oakland.
5. Arrogant fans. Da Pats
lose to da Iggles? Gidadaheah.
Whatayaretahdid?
6. The Patriot Act. Paul
Tagliabue is,watching.
7.' New England clam
chowder. I'll take my chowder
Manhattan style anytime,
chowheads.
8. Barry Manilow's dread-
ed "Weekend in New Eng-
land."

The Venice High boys bas-
ketball team may have suf-
fered through some second
half lapses Tuesday night, but
the most important thing was
the bottom line.
The Indians regrouped
and found a way to win in a
tough place to play.
Venice remains one of the
hotter hoops teams in the
area following a 61-56 victory
at Sarasota Christian.
The Indians, who have
won eight of their last nine,


improved to 10-8. The Blazers
fell to 9-7.
Venice had balanced scor-
ing across the board as guard
Ariel Bonilla netted 13 points
and forward Steve Stasko
had 11. Eight players had five
points or more.
Venice played a decent first
half, especially in the second
quarter when good defense
sparked a good all-around
effort. The Indians turned a
15-9 first quarter lead into a
seemingly comfortable 34-21
cushion at halftime.
SThe Blazers seemed con-
tent to either dribble pene-


trate or bomb away.
Meanwhile, Venice effec-
tively worked the ball inside to
big men Stasko, Dexter
Jackson and llyaVasilevskiy. In
particular, Stasko had a strong
first half with nine points, five
coming in the second quarter.
Five other Indians dented the
scoreboard in the second
quarter. Kyle Abney swooped
baseline for two buckets.
George Stritz and Kalen Lyons
each canned a trey.
Venice became unraveled
a bit in the second half. Nick
Miller had 11 third quarter
points and Ben Kauffman


eight as the Blazers crept to
within 49-42 after three.
Then Sarasota Christian
scored the first six points of
the fourth quarter to make it a
49-48 ballgame.
,This is where Venice could
have folded, but the Indians
had a gut check and reached
down for the win. Bonilla had
a big three, Stritz sank ,two
.free throws, Jackson convert-
ed a pass from Lyons. With a
minute left, Venice had a 56-
51 lead. Bonilla canned two
free throws and Jake Bier took
a full court inbounds pass
from Lyons with 5 seconds


left to score a layup and then
a free throw.
Venice plays at Bayshore
Thursday night and at Port
Charlotte Friday night.

Pitchers Tilka, Schmehl make college choices

BYCLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Two senior pitchers that
the Venice High varsity base-
ball team will be counting on
heavily for the 2005 season
have committed to play at
in-state junior colleges.
Andrew Tilka has agreed
to continue his baseball ca-
reer at Daytona Beach Com-
munity College, while Joel
Schmehl will be heading to
.Avon Park to play for South
Florida Community College.


Tilka is a 6-foot, 2-inch,
180-pound right-hander who
could be the No. 1 starter for
coach Craig Faulkner's Indian
squad this winter and spring.
Schmehl is a 5-foot, 11-inch,
190-pound submarine re-
liever who will be the stop-
per and could jump into the
starting rotation.
Tilka, who has a big leg
kick and a distracting motion,
visited Daytona Beach and
liked everything he saw.
"I liked the blonds on the
beach;" Tilka joked. "Seri-


ously, I liked the coach (Tim
Touma), the program, the
field, the whole environ-
ment."
Tim Orlosky, a 2001 Venice
High grad, had a successful
two-year stint at Daytona
Beach CC, impressing
Touma.
"Coach Faulkner arranged
a tryout," Tilka said. "Coach
Touma offered me a full
ride."
Tilka, who is entering his
third year on the VHS varsity,
was 2-0 with an ERA of 1.05


last spring. He made big
strides over the summer in
American Legion ball. Tilka's
fastball is in the mid-80s
range and he has developed
a good slider and change-up.
Schmehl is another who
came into his own during
the 2004 Legion season. His
sidearm motion is deceiving
and he showed great move-
ment on the ball. All the
while, his control was excel-
lent.
"Their coach (Rick Hitt)
saw me in Legion," Schmehl


said. "He.said he needed
someone to throw relief
three or four games a week."
Schmehl started throwing
from down under in the
summer of 2003 when he felt
he wouldn't make the Indians
as a third baseman or catcher.
Schmehl was 1-1 with an
ERA of 2.55 forVHS in 2004.
Schmehl thanked his par-
ents for all of their support,
plus coaches Faulkner, Jeff
Callan and Tom Brown for
helping his mound game
evolve.

WFDNFSDAY. IAN. 6. 2005


Nelson aims high for the sky


Osprey woman makes All-American
in clay shooting.


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT.

To appreciate how to
accurately shoot targets 2 to 5
inches in diameter 45 yards in
the air and at different speeds
and trajectories, you have to
think how you would throw
a baseball. You don't watch
your hand. You watch the bat-
ter (if you're a pitcher). Or the
target base (if you're a fielder).
That's how Diane Nelson
does it. She's been Florida
Ladies State Champion in
sporting clays competition
the past three years. She was
National Ladies Champion in
the sport in 2002, and has
been named to the Ladies '
All-American team eight
times by the National Sport-
ing Clays Association.
"It's something like golf,"
she said. "You have to move
around among 12 to 15 posi-
tions. Two machines at each
position throw up targets in
several directions and at dif-:
ferent speeds at a distance of
about 45 yards in the air."
: Sporting clays courses are
designed to simulate the
hunting of ducks, pheasants,
even rabbits. Six different
sizes of clay targets 2 to 5
inches in diameter give the
shooter the experience of
actual hunting conditions.
The targets are hurled by
the machine also at times by
a human, called a puller i from
a carousel holding 100-200
targets. ";ou get a look at the
target. For how long depends
on its trajectory, before you
shoot," said Nelson, owner
and operator of an animal
clinic in Osprey.
S"To be good at it, you need
to focus," she added. "I man-
age that in several ways. Ear
plugs shut out distracting
noises. Protective glasses re-
duce glare. And I don't let
other: thoighits enter my
mind once I'm ready to
shoot" : -
,"Before I get started, I


imagine where the targets
could appear," she said.
"Once I get going, no more
thinking. I stick with my
plan. And when a round of
competition is over, I go back
out onto the course, and look
for ways I can improve my
score. It takes time, but the
-reward is in higher scores,"
Nelson said.
When she competes next
month at Quail Creek Plan-
tation, just north of Okee-
chobee for the Seminole Cup,
she will go against the best
female shooters in the coun-
try. The event is expected to
draw more than 800 men
and women in the event. Her
weapon of choice is the 12-
gauge full choke Beretta
Model 391 shotgun. At 5-feet,


6-inches in height and about
125 pounds, she has no con-
cern about the gun's 7-pound
weight.
"Women today are as fit
as men. sOur upper body
strength is sufficient to han-
dle this gun," she observed.
Shooting for sport dates
back to the early 1900s in
England, when trap shooters
used live pigeons for targets.
In 1920, a group of hunters
in Andover, Mass., practiced
what they called "wing" shoot-.
ing. A uniform series of shots
was developed to keep com-
petition fair and even for
everyone. That began the
modern version of skeet
shooting.
Knights Trail Park, about
3-1/2 miles northwest of
Laurel Road in Venice, is this
area's trap shooting center.
Seven trap and skeet fields, a
pistol and rifle range and five


shooting stands normally
attract 500-7000 shooters
each of the four days they
are open. Members of the
Sarasota Trap and Skeet Club,
who practice in the Park,
number more than 500.
About half are "snowbirds,"
who lack such facilities where
they live.
Steven Nelson, Diane's
son, has followed in her foot-
steps. A recent graduate of
the University of Florida, he's
been shooting for several
years. In 2003, he was rank-
ed second nationally, and is
a three-time All-American
among men. In international
competition in England last
September, mother and son
helped Team USA win a gold
medal in the World Sporting
Clays Championships.
At the age of 25, he is about
to begin studies to become a
veterinarian, too.

New croquet courts


to play host to


big tournament


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Word travels fast among
croquet enthusiasts.
The Sarasota County Cro-
quet Club, which dedicated
its new courts at the Wellfield
Park on Pinebrook Road in
Venice, has had to add a
fourth day to its scheduled
tournament Feb. 2-5 to acco-
modate the number of com-
petitors.
The event is expected to
draw clubs from all over
Florida.
Wellfield Park's three full-
sized (84 feet by 105 feet) and
two half-sized courts make
up the largest public facility
for croquet in the continental
United States, according to
Croquet Club president Jack-
ie Jones ofVenice.
The new location was
found after an extensive
search by the Sarsota County
Parks and Recreation De,-
partment. Jack Colligan, nan-
ager of area parks for Sara-
sota County, led the effort.
settling on Wellfield because
it offers nearby water for irri-
gation of.the croquet lawns.
ample parking and public
bathrooms. On the side of
Pinebrook Road, it is visible
to driversby, including the
Venice police. This enhances
safety of players, according to
Colligan.
The Croquet Club, which
has wandered from two
courts.in Venice, now occu-
pied bylinew homes, and the
bowling lawns at. Van Wezel
hall in Sarasota, relied on
Colligan to find an idealloca-
tion. He helped to make cro-
quet and lawn bowling so
popular at Van Wezel, the cro-
quet players were squeezed
out of their space. The event-
ual partnership of the club,
county and the city of Veri e
established the Wellfield Park
facility.
Fred and Jackie Jones have
led the club's efforts to popu-
larize the game in the area.
They hope that the new
courts will add to the club
membership, which has
grown about 20 percent since
work began atWellfield Park
To play on the club's
courts, one must pay $75
annually. Mallets and wickets
- you can buy three sets for
$60 to $100 are stored in a
shed the club installed at the
park for use by players. Be-
ginners and others are wel-
come to clinics on Tuesday
mornings.:

version of the game, is played.

eran payers are teamed with
rookies to ease the learning
experience, and the half-sized
courts are employed because
they simplify the game, ac-
cording to Jones.
The Joneses are ranked
nationally as seniors. Fred is
sixth among senior men with
a handicap of -1/2. Jackie is
11th among senior women
with a +1/2 handicap.
'Handicaps, range from
-1/2 to +20. They have
been national senior doubles
champions for the past two
years.
Croquet is a difficult game
to learn; if you hope to reach
the Joneses' level. It requires
an unusual combination of
physical skills, strategies and
tactical planning. The ability
to make shots is only a frac-
tion of the game, according
to the U.S. Croquet Associa-
tion.
But only about 100,000
Americans are seriously in-
volved in six-wicket croquet.
Croquet is like badminton
and pitching horseshoes.
Millions play backyard cro-
quet under four different sets
of rules for six and nine
wickets.
The' ancestry of croquet
dates to the 14th Century.
The French, who called it
paille maille (ball and mallet),
introduced the game to
Scottish visitors, who took it
up in the 16th Century, pos-
sibly as practice for golf in-
doors in winter.
SThe Wimbledon All Eng-
land Lawn Tennis and Cro-
quet Club popularized the
game in 1868, then threw it
out nine years later, when
they tore up the croquet
courts and replaced them
with lawn tennis courts.
Croquet reached the U.S.
in 1882. Americans modified
the rilbs to speed up the
game, and it has been a pop-
ular backyard game for all
ages for 55 years.
To itiake croquet more
exciting, Americans have
narrowed the wickets and
shortened the mallets. A
hard 'rubber ball was intro-
duced. At first, wooden bar-
ricades surrounded courts,
and they allowed the livelier
ball to carom off the boards.
To change the path of shots,
"English" was applied.
: Altogether, the changes
and the enthusiastic involve-
ment of Hollywood film stars
made croquet society's game
by the 1920s.
The; Sarasota County Cro-
quet Club hopes the new
Wellfield Park courts will do
the same for this area., /

OUR VIEW



Governor too stubborn on tax cuts to help needy


G ov. Jeb Bush keeps missing the target.
The second-term governor popu-
lar with most Floridians and consid-
ered presidential material refuses to back
off from his infatuation with tax cuts as thou-
sands in the state suffer needlessly and others
lack adequate mental health care.
Bush unveiled his proposed budget last
week, giving pundits and legislators a pre-
view of what he expects to accomplish when
the Legislature convenes. He said tourism
will lead the way in producing a $4 billion
shot-in-the-arm for state coffers the next two
years.
That was wonderful news if projections
hold true.
Imagine that kind of money being used to
help our schools, prop up a dangerously inef-
ficient mental health system and provide
medical care for Florida's most needy.
Perhaps there would even be enough left over


to help with hurricane recovery, improve our
decaying road systems or hire more teachers
to meet the class-size amendment require-
ments.
The governor has other ideas.
We must give Bush credit for boosting
Medicaid allotments to $14.7 billion and
expanding the outlay for reading initiatives
by 30 percent, to $186 million.
But the governor is back at his tax-cutting
best, asking for a repeal of the per-drink tax
and a gradual phase-out of the intangibles
tax on stocks and bonds.
Now, we are not against cutting taxes. If
the state is meeting the needs of its citizens,
none of us wants to pay a penny more than
needed.
What is troubling is the state's history of
cutting taxes while not caring for the mental-
ly ill or the most needywho lack health insur-
ance and the ability to get medical treatment.


To balance the budget, Bush has proposed
cutting the Medically Needy program's cover-
age of hospital care. That contradicts the idea
that the state income from taxes will swell by
billions and the idea that this administration
has any compassion for the people. You
should not cut-taxes while eliminating med-
ical care for the needy.
There are 36,000 Floridians who can get
health care only through the Medically Needy
program. These are people who are ineligible
for Medicaid and, because of chronic or cata-
strophic illnesses, cannot get private insur-
ance.
Some who fall into this category are eligi-
ble for Medicare, but it usually does not pay
the full costs of treatment and hospitaliza-
tion.
There are actually people who could die if
the Medically Needy funds are cut.
The Associated Press wrote about one


such person, a 32-year-old Bradenton moth-
er of three who is fighting cystic fibrosis and
awaiting an organ transplant. She needs hos-
pital treatment several times a year to keep
going treatment that could be cut off if
Bush's proposal is approved.
Already, House Speaker Allan Bense, R-
Panama City, has expressed a reluctance to
agree to the governor's plan. Bense, a loyal
Bush supporter, cannot find it in his heart to
cut off medical care for the state's working
poor.
Good for Bense.
Perhaps a majority qf legislators will agree.
that tax cuts are not more important than the
lives of thousands of Florida's poor. Or,
maybe the governor will reconsider his sug-
gestion.
At the same time, perhaps he can consider
the lack of adequate funding for mental
health care.


Nobody asked

ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST

Wl'ith a tip of the hat to the
late Jimmy Cannon:
The next time you see a
pretty blonde driving a big,
black SUV she will be driving
with one hand and talking on
a cll phone, and there will be
children strapped in the back
seat.
OK,eI give up. Why do our
new street lights have two
globes high brights and
low brights? Don't get me
wrong: Ilike them, its not like
a pink bridge or something,
but I can't help wondering if
some sharp salesman from a
light-bulb company or Flor-
ida Power and Light didn't
have something to do with it.
Thanks in good measure to
county commissioner Jon
Thaxton and his fellow com-
missioners, the county has
wisely agreed to buy the rail-
road right of way from Clark
Road in Sarasota to Center
Road in Venice to make a
walking and biking path. Now
somebody has to figure out
how to keep snowbirds, frus-
trated with traffic on U.S. 41,
from driving on it.
The next time you see an
old guy driving along in his
Toyota with his left-turn sig-
nal on, wave it may be me.
When folks in government,
such as my pen pal John Sim-
monds, or out of government,
such as professional athletes,
tell you that money is not the
issue, it is the issue.
The Venice Little Theatre
should drop that .middle
name. The theater should be
the Venice Big Theatre, or bet-
ter still, theVenice Grand The-
atre. Artistic Director Murray
Chase, assistant director Alan
Kollar and a talented cast of
colleagues have won South-
east regional and even na-
tional recognition for creativi-
ty and acting. Even Jay Han-
delman likes them.
Speaking of acting, Murray
and his lovely wife, Laurie,
were terrific in "Frankie and
Johnny at the Clair de Lune,"
in which they gave their all -
and showed most of it, too.
Bob Vedder is leading a
local part of a national, mas-


S. 0 *

sive weight-loss campaign
(you can decide if massive re-
fers to the campaign or the
weight). Hopefully, a few of
the folks from the sheriff'S
posse and the VPD will sign
up, even if it costs Dearybury
Donuts alittlebusiness.
With perhaps the main
feature that makes Venice dis-
tinctive and pleasing its
Mediterranean design stan-
dards, it is not surprising that
some folks want to change
them.
I am not sure what Venice
and pigs have in common,
but people sure like them and
you can't walk by one without
someone asking you to take
their picture with it. So,
hooray for the Venice Art
Center. I suggested that
sharks might be appropriate,
given the shark's tooth identi-
fication with the town, but
wiser heads felt that people
might think we were honor-
ing developers and politi-
cians. (Aren't you lawyers
grateful I left you out?)
The next time you speak to
a local airport supporter, he
or she will tell you that all the
noisy planes are hospital
planes taking Canadians
home, or are ferrying rich
CEOs from Boca Grande. The
planes here are so quiet be-
cause most are gliders, or per-
haps powered by winding
rubber bands. I understand
that someone has been
spreading something on the
airport but it is not, despite
the arguments, the pilots'
association.
Tommy McIntyre, our in-
vestigative reporter, has made
the front page by discovering
bicyclists were giving drivers
"the bird." As a bicyclist in a
collision behind a shopping
center while trying to avoid a
narrow strip of Center Road
between U.S.41 Business and
the bypass, where there is no
sidewalk or bike path, I did
not give.the driver the bird,
even while lying on my back
on the asphalt. My reward
came when the lady told the
judge she was not driving
more than 10 mph, and he
rolled his eyes and canceled
myfine.
Well, it's almost 3:30 p.rm.
and I have to get ready for
dinner.

LTERS FROM OUR READERS

VPC pastor didn't disclose sensitive information


Editor:
As a parent of a student at Venice Presbyterian Church's
Early Childhood Center, I question the judgment of Bob and
RhondaWill in their letter to the editor.
Nowhere, in any article in the Gondolier Sun or otherwise,
'has Pastor Chris Romig released "sensitive and inflammatory
information to a newspaper and then offered public comment
on it," as they charge. Then they compound their mistake with
a "What if?" that questions Pastor Ron ig's "pastoral counsel,"
insinuating that he would reveal someone's confidences or
deal with their issues in a most inappropriate way. How slan-
derous!
"What would Jesus do?", they ask. I would certainly hope
that Jesus would not issue forth, in a public viewing place,
unsubstantiated, slanderous accusations about a pastor or
anyone else.
I, too, hope that the Venice Police Department and the state'
attorney will bring their investigation to a close soon. All of the
rumors and negative press loom over the ECC like a dark cloud
and disrupt and harm the current students, parents and teach-
ers of the preschool.
Continued negative press, rumors and unsubstantiated let-
ters, like the one mentioned above, serve no, one, especially not
the current students, parents and staff of the ECC. Stop it now
and let them heal.

Help bring Epic to Venice
Editor:
Is it possible that one of the
more wealthy residents of our
beautiful city of Venice might
consider donating enough
funds to purchase a 15-acre
parcel of land for the pro-
posed replacement of the
group theaters, that we lost to
make room for the new
Lowes?
Your news editor, J.J. An-
drews, reported that Epic
Theatres of Deland, Fla., was
interested in constructing
one but due to current higher
land prices, has been unable
to find a site that was finan-


cially feasible and so those
who really enjoyed going to
see a movie once in a while,
cannot do so.
My wife and I had occasion
to go to one at Merchants
Crossing in North Fort Myers
and it was beautiful, with
excellent'parking and a pas-
senger unloading area.

Avoid social
schizophrenia
Editor:
Devout Christians view
Christ as lord of every aspect


of their lives from birth to
death. Nothing is separated
into sacred versus secular,
private versus public behav-
ior, etc., but all is under the
unity of Christ.
In contrast to this is a spe-,
cial type of social schizophre-
nia where all ideas on reli-
gion, politics, business, sex,
etc. are neatly put into sepa-
rate boxes and kept apart to
be politically correct. And'this
artificially induced social
schizophrenia is adamant in
keeping the boxes separated,
not stacked on one another.
Psychology reminds us
that in the quest to be an inte-
grated, wholesome, balanced
and responsible self-actuated
human being, the social engi-
neering found in social schiz-
ophrenia is abnormal even
though it is our present social
norm.
The freedom to discuss
responsibly who we are as a
result of influences and all
variables in our lives is
honest, open communica-
tion.
The idea that a person can-
not comment on his religion,
politics, business and eco-
nomics in a frank discussion
is social schizophrenia, not
mental health.
We are what we believe.
Plessy vs. Ferguson compart-
mentalized our thinking until
changed by Brown vs. Board
of Education in 1954.
The same "keep your box-
es separated, but equal" pro-
moting segregation, not inte-
gration, is clear evidence of
our social schizophrenia in
segregated mental boxes that
need integration for social
sanity.

'Arcadia is back in business
Editor:
I am writing to you as a
concerned merchant in
downtown Arcadia.
As you know, our town was
hit very 'hard last hurricane
season. The media made it
sound like Arcadia was wiped
off the map.
Although we did Suffer ma-
jor damage, our residents,
merchants and disaster relief
agencies have worked very
hard getting Arcadia up and
running again,
We celebrated the grand
reopening of our town on Oct.
30 with a fall festival. We had a
Christmas in the.park and our
second-Saturday-of-every-
month antique fair, and are
planning our flea market ex-
travaganzas the fifth Sat-
urdays, the first event being
Jan. 29. We are doing a home
and architectural tour on
March 19, with many events
to follow.
I and many fellow mer-
chants'are hearing from some
of our winter visitors they
were told not to come to
Arcadia it was, still leveled
and they would not be able to
get in. People here are being
told this by businesses as
close as Venice. This is very
disheartening, as we are all
trying very hard to keep our
towh and businesses going.
We would greatly appreci-
ate it if you could let people
know downtown Arcadia is
again a great place for a day of
shopping, dining and fun. I

Let government officials try sitting in traffic


Stuck again. Once again I am sitting on 1-75 with traffic not
moving, with the tale on the radio that the road is closed due to
an accident: Maybe it is time we lowered the speed limits
around here, stop giving old people driver licenses, and slow
some of the growth. If we are not going to control the growth,
have the people who are paying $3 million for a new house
heavily taxed to put in a new road system. Or better yet, why
not have some of our politicians sit down in the next traffic jam
and see how they like it.


A waste. Talk about a waste
of money: $500,000 to build
stairs from the bridge down to
the walk along the Intra-
coastal. Can't they access that
right at the Venice Gondolier
Sun building?
Sicko. To the person who
made the comment about cat
owners: Anyone who harms a
cat, dog, bird or butterfly is
sick, and a psychiatrist will
even say so. If you harm a cat
for running loose ,at night,
shame on you. You are ill.
Three points. I agree with
taking American flags off
Japanese cars. People should
wonder where their children
are going to work. Obviously
they don't.
Second, I think it is great
the code enforcement people
are starting to ticket people;
and third, I think it is ex-
tremely inconsiderate for
these planes to be flying over-
head when no one wants
them in the area.
Good word. I am calling
about the caller who com-


plained there is no praise for
the Habitat for Humanity
office: You are right. I apolo-
gize to you.. I drive past that
every day and think it is so
nice and the landscaping is
phenomenal. I was one who
complained and never
thought about giving praise,
which you so thoroughly de-
serve.
Defined. The definition of
an' idiot is someone who
moves in next to an airport
and then calls in to complain
about it.
Take off.' Should flying
time at the airport be restrict-
ed? No. It is an airport and it
has been there long before
most of these people bought
their houses.
To the person who wrote
about grounding them: Move.
Get used to it.
I live near the airport. I am
not going to criticize.it. It was
there before me. If you don't
like it, leave. I support the air-
port and I support what the
city is trying to do to make it

Hey, drivers. Go drive your
cars somewhere else. I lived
near U.S. 41 before it was four
lanes and now that it is four
lanes, it is really making a lot
of noise.
This is exactly the same
moronic argument put forth
bythe people near the airport.
They made a bad decision.
They should have done due
diligence. Maybe they should
move out ofVenice.
Too much. I read the article
by J.J. Andrews on Ms. Louns-
bury as deputy finance direc-
tor. One, I think her salary is
tremendously inflated.
For anyone with a high
school degree to make
$66,000 in that capacity, I
think the powers that be
should review her credentials
and have someone with a
degree of some sort in that
position.
It is a slap in the face to
people who have degrees. In
regard to a rewperson to hire,
that salary would be appro-
priate if they hire someone
with the credentials to back it
up.

Plantation's fourth





home tour


BYKIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Nary a blade of grass is out
of place at The Plantation.
And that is on a normal
day.
Consider what it might be
like at six Plantation homes
that will be open to public
viewing Jan. 28 and 29.
In preparation for several
thousand visitors, the homes'
owners have manicured every
square inch of their homes
and lawns.
The occasion is the fourth
annual Tour of Homes, a
fund-raising, project for the
Plantation Community Foun-
dation, vwlich annually sup-
ports many Venice-area
groups and organizations.
Together with its other
fund-raising projects, the
foundation gave more than
$140,000 to 43 South Sarasota
County agencies last year.
Money earned from the
annual home tour accounted
for more than 10 percent of
the total. Since the founda-
tion's incorporation in 1988,
more than $1 million has
been contributed to deserv-
ing nonprofit organizations.

Described by the founda-
tion's immediate past presi-
dent Mike Casey as "a net-
work of friends," the mem-
bers are constantly working
to increase their endowment
and ability to give to the com-
munity's health, educational,
social and cultural organiza-
tions.
That network includes the
homeowners whose houses
will be on the tour, a bevy of
volunteers who will act as
hosts and hostesses within
the homes during the tour
and countless others who
worked behind the scenes to
write, design and print the
ticket booklets, arrange the
luncheon at the clubhouse


and do all the other things
necessary -1 carry off such a
big project. This year's tour
chair is \Anne Dallam.
Each ticket buyer will
receive one ticket good for the
tour's door prize drawing.
Raffle tickets will be given out
at home No. 1, 483 Sher-
brooke Court, and additional
raffle tickets may be pur-
chased at that home. That
also is the home where the
raffle prizes will be displayed.
Prizes include a gold necklace
donated by Reflections in
Gold, an evening bag donated
by I'biza in Venice, a pedicure
and manicure at the James
Griffith Salon, tour rounds of
golf at the Plantation Golf &
Country Club, two private
one-half-hour tennis lessons
at The Plantation, brunches
and dinners. Item four in the
raffle is a potpourri of diverse
items and includes a one-
hour massage donated by
Susan Riley at the Venice
Clinic of Massage Therapy, a
picnic basket filled with hair
products and two bottles of
wine donated by Scorpio's in
Englewood, and a 12-inch
glazed porcelain plate donat-
ed by potter and Plantation
resident Betty Fern.
The homes, which will be
open from 10 a.n. to 4 p.m.
are located within five differ-
ent Plantation communities,
giving tour goers a good
overview of the community.
Home No. 1, at 483 Sher-
brooke Court in The Reserve,
belongs to art collectors Pam
and Peter Vogt. Completed in
1991, the home was designed
to accommodate the growing
family of Peter and his late
wife Mary Lou, while also
serving as a backdrop for
their art collection. The home
also is another example of
"the network of friends" at
The Plantation. The Vogts
could not be present for the
tour but a longtime family
friend, lerry Clauss, has pre-
pared the home for the tour.'
She has been staying in the
home with her husbandwhile'
their home is restored follow-
ing a fire that occurred when
a microwave oven exploded.
The Vogts offered their house
as a refuge and Clauss, in
turn, handled all the prepara-
tions necessary to prepare the
home for the tour.
I toured the house with
Clauss last week, thoroughly
enjoying the bright spaces
and the extensive art collec-
tion. Vogt, a former publisher,
is a director of the Burchfield
Penny Art Gallery in Buffalo
and the John and NMable
Ringling Museum of Art in
Sarasota. Thelbgts' art collec-
tion is an eclectic mix of
paintings, prints and whimsi-
cal sculpture, most done by
regional artists with whom


The Bene home at 409 Devonshire Lane in Plantation Lakes.-


The painting featured on this dining area wall shows the dining
N.Y., on a snowy day.


\ogt has formed friendships,
Clauss said. The painting
shown with this article, hang-
ing in the home's dining area,
shows the dining room of a
Buffalo mansion, with snowx
outside the .\indowvs. Despite
the setting that is both wintry
and northern, the painting's
colors work wel in its new
tropical setting. Nearby are
"Snowbirds" bySarasota artist
Jack Dowd and "lean" by
Vogt's daughter-in-law\, Ai
Vogt, a Seattle artist who is
becoming increasingly well-
known.
Above dithe bed in the mas-
ter bedroom is a clean-lined
painting byA. Falk, depicting
a Howard Johnson restaurant
across the street from a golf
course. The work is large,
crisp and dynamic. Hung
nearby is a much smaller
work, by a close friend and
former employee, Thomas
Aquinas Dale The small oil
shows three baseballs and a
sprig of \ild blue cornflower,
a colorful wildflower seen
along northern highways in
tie summer. Daley took a
year's leave from Vogt's com-
pany, Buffalo Press, to see if
he couldmake it as an artist.
Judging by the hard cover
book of his work on a round
table in the bedroom, he has.
Another work in the bed-
room is a view of a bridge,
from the ground below. It is
hung high on the wall so that
the \iew' of the painting is the
same as that of the artist who
created it, Clauss pointed out.
The Vogts' personal art studio
is just off the bedroom. Ii has
doors to the pool and lanai
and a view of the golf course.
Also there are several paint-
ings of clowns, all with the
face of the artist, but different


make-up and hats.
Clauss has made a point of
learning the history behind
each piece of artwork and has
shared the knowledge with
the hosts who will be man-
ning the house during the
tour.

completes training
Navy Seaman Adam H.
Kaczmarek, son of Nancy M.
and David G. Kaczmarek of
Venice, Fla., recently com-
pleted U.S. Navy basic train-
ing and was meritoriously
promoted to his current
rank at Recruit Training
Command, Great Lakes, Ill.
During the eight-week


program, Kaczmarek com-
pleted a variety of training
which included classroom
study and practical instruc-
tion on naval customs, first
aid, firefighting, water safety
and survival, and shipboard

uate ofVenice High School.

Venice High School for 35
years. He is also an alumnus
of VHS (Class of 1966) and he

ate of Arts degree from
Manatee Junior College, a
Bachelor of Arts degree from
the University of South Flor-
ida, and a Master of Edu-

munity. He is still known at

Island Village Montessori School


reaches out to global village


BY KIM ELDER
SCHOOL CORRESPONDENT


Island Village Montessori
School has had a busy fall.
Like all Sarasota County resi-
dents, they have felt gratitude
for their escape from the
hurricanes this season. IVMS
has opened our doors to
Charlotte County families,
and their students wrote let-
ters to the unsung heroes at
FPL who worked tirelessly to
get our electricity back on
time after time. They orga-
nized a spare change cam-
paign to raise money for the
Red Cross.
This March, IVMS will
host a music festival at the
Phillipi Mansion in Sarasota.
Part of the proceeds will go
to the Give Something Back
Foundation, a non-profit org-
anization that is helping to
rebuild schools in Thailand,
hit hard by the recent tsuna-
mi. The school will have
more information on their
Web site closer to show time.
All musicians are donating
their time during the event. If
you would like to participate,
we would love to have you!
Please check in with our Web
site for further updates on
this event at www.island-
village.org. The festival is a


family event.
This foundation also spon-
sors the Global Virtual Class-
room Project, an online pro-
ject with schools contributing
from around the world. IVMS
won third place last year for
its work with schools from
Taiwan and Australia. This
year, IVMS has two new part-
ners from different parts of
the world. Our younger stu-
dents continue to exchange
letters with Perpignan, France
through Sarasota's Sister
Cities program.
This year, the school has
another sister classroom in
Vladimir, Russia. Represen-
tatives from Vladimir will be
visiting the school early in
February to bring letters from
the Russian students. IVIS
students will have letters pre-
pared for the return trip. The
students have learned much
from their correspondence
With students from around
the world.
Open enrollment for the
school's Venice campus will
end mid-February. IVMS is
planning expansions of our
program to Sarasota. Cur-
rently the school has a small
preschool program located
at the Unitarian Church in
Sarasota and they have got-
ten approval from the Sara-


sota County School Board for
a North County charter loca-
tion. Next year, Island Village
Middle School will open its
doors, sharing the eight acre
campus in Venice. The pro-
Sgram will begin with sixth
grade and open a grade in
each succeeding year until
eighth grade. At its maximum
capacity, our middle school.
will hold 88 students.
IVMS is also preparing for
the Universal Pre-K program
next year. The school is trying
to stay up-to-date with all
the latest information com-
ing down from Tallahassee.
The Venice preschool. is
awaiting our final visit to.;
receive NAYCE accreditation.
IVMS has begun the accred-
itation process with SACS
(Southern Association. of
College and Schools) and
with the American Mon-
tessori Society, of which we
are currently a member.
The public is invited to
the school's open house on
Sunday, January 30, 2-4 p.m.
Classrooms will be open.
Teachers will be available to
answer questions. IVMS stu-
dents may even stop in to give
demonstra-tions on the Mon-
tessori materials. Call our
office at 484-4999 for more

Breakfast helps students make the grade


STAFF REPORT


One of the most import-
ant school supplies your
child has may be a spoon,
That's the news from a new
survey that gave a "report
card" on American children's
breakfast habits and how
they relate to sclipol.perfor-
mance. The study suggests
that something as simple as
eating cereal in the morning
can help a child have a better
school day.
Educators witness the fall-
out every day and confirm
studies that show that chil-
dren who eat breakfast daily
score higher on achievement
tests and have lower absen-
teeism rates than children
who skip breakfast.
Kids who skip breakfast lose
up to a quarter of their daily
intake of critical vitamins and
minerals-directly impacting
energy levels, memory and
focus.
Parents can help
make the grade
The report card survey
found that more than 90 per-
cent of moms said it was "very
important", to be involved in'
their children's education -
but 30 percent of elementary
school-aged children are
sent to school at'least one


day per week on empty stom-
achs.
S"Skipping breakfast is not
an option," said Tim Sullivan,
President of PTO Today. "Get-
ting involved doesn't have to
be difficult. Easy steps like
pouring a bowl of cereal in.
the morning to ensure kids
arrive at school ready to
learn are the first steps in
effective involvement."
Sullivan's group works to
provide over 20 million
moms and dads with simple
tips on helping their children
do better in school. They
include:
SBreakfast doesn't need to
be elaborate. A quick bowl of
cereal provides a nutritious
breakfast.
Kids running to class
have trouble settling down so
incorporate at least 10 min-
utes of padding in the school
drop-off routine to avoid a
rush.
Implement open lines of
communication with your
school early. Whether it's by
e-mail, phone or in person,
don't let your parent-teacher
conference be your only
touch point.
Have a daily school
check-in with your child -
homework, friends, success-
es, challenges. This simple
conversation sends a power-


ful message to your child.
Even an hour or two of
school involvement, which
can often be done before or
after school, can make a dif-
ference for your child and
your school.
About the report card
The Report Card on Amer-
ica's Breakfast Habits was
launched in response to edu-
cators who say they are con-
cerned about children who
do not eat breakfast.
The survey was complet-
ed by the American Cereal
Council in partnership with
PTO Today. It was meant to
examine how well parents
are preparing their children
for school.
A sample of more than
1,000 moms with children
ages six-12 were asked about
their breakfast routine and
the importance of parent in-
volvement in their children's
education.
More information
Parents looking for sug-
gestions on how to improve
their breakfast routine and
get more involved in prepar-
ing their children for school

Glass artist teaches craft


BY HEIDI KOEPSEL
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 focuses on answering
common questions and shar-
ing views on education.

Of all the subjects taught
in schoolrooms across the
country, one of the most
important skills is often over-
looked: how to study.
There are four key areas
that can help students im-
prove their study skills: orga-
nization and time manage-
ment, effective note-taking,
reading and study strategies
as well as test-taking tech-
niques.
"By improving these skills,
a student can learn faster,
retain knowledge for longer
periods of time and recall that
knowledge with greater accu-
racy," said Richard Bavaria,
Ph.D. "It also means better
performance on tests and
exams, less time on home-
work and greater confidence
in the classroom."
Here are a few recommen-
dations to help students im-
prove study skills:
Keep a schedule
All students should keep a
schedule of classes, assign-
ments and other key dates. As
part of that schedule, they
should set aside specific time
for studying and project work.
Students are less likely to find
themselves scrambling to
complete a project at the last
minute or cramming the
night before a big test if they.
have kept up with the work all
along.

Take effective
notes in class
Most students take notes
in classes, but often when
they review the notes they
can't make sense of the con-
tent. Students need to devel-
op note-taking skills that
include identifying key infor-
mation and capturing it in a
style that makes for effective
studying later.
Reading assignments
Poor reading skills or an in-
ability to read for important in-
formation makes assignments
a burden and undermines
overall academic success. If
reading skills are weak, it's im-
portant for the student to seek
help to improve them; other-
wise performance in many
subjects will be impacted.
Test-taking strategies
A poor test result could
mean that the student doesn't
have a good grasp of the aca-
demic material, or it could
just mean that the student
may not take tests well.
Effective test-taking strategies
include: learning how to pri-
oritize material when study-
ing for a test; preparing for a
test over a number of days;
coping with stress during the
test; and managing time dur-
'ing a test so all sections are
completed.

Kellmis Fernandez must
have the patience of a saint.
Because it only takes the
slightest change in tempera-
ture to ruin an intricately
formed glass sculpture.
Fernandez, who works out
of his studio in Englewood,
makes his living blowing glass
with the assistance of his wife,
Maria.
She has her own explana-
tion of the difficult task her
husband performs.
"I always say colors are like
people," Maria said.. "Each
color has its own personality.
Some colors don't mix."
Maria was referring to the
wide range of colors and con-
sistencies Kellmis melts
together, layer after layer, in
the fiery hot furnaces, to cre-
ate elaborate sculptures,
vases, bowls, plates, orna-
ments and other creations.
Fernandez gets his inspira-
tion from myths and legends
from all over the world.
His list of awards, collec-
tions, commissions and exhi-
bitions includes museums
and art centers the world


over.
He's also inspired by
nature, as evidenced by his
works "Tornado" and
"Galaxy."
Fernandez, who was born
in Venezuela, received his,
bachelor's degree in art histo-
ry from Northeastern Uni-
versity in Boston, where he
discovered the fine art of glass
blowing.
He graduated with a bach-
elor's of fine arts degree in
glass and photography from
Massachusetts College of Art.
He went on to earn his mas-
ter's degree of fine art in glass
under the tutelage of Dan
Dailey.
During and after his stu-
dent days, Fernandez taught
his art at Massachusetts
Institute of Technology and
the Pilchuck School of Glass
in Boston.
He continues to teach glass
blowing to other artists at his
studio, which doubles as his
classroom.
The beginner class is clear
glass blowing, as mixing col-
ors takes experience. The cost
is $450 for six classes. That'
includes materials for one
cup, one plate and one vase.

2,000-degree oven as his wife, Maria Fernandez, blows air
through a tube to form what later became a colorful bowl.


Students learn the basic
forms of cylinder and globes.
The glass art of Fernandez
is presently was recently
exhibited along with other
glass artists at the Venice Art
Center, 390 Nokomis Ave. S.,
Venice.

position that he was allowed
beach access, so he allowed
himself to be charged with a
crime."
Mack said Schultz has
repeatedly disregarded deed-
ed easements, including her
client's, allowing residents
beach access.
Schultz, who owns Gulf
Breeze Apartments at 1230
Shoreview Drive, said her
property extends 213 feet
from the back of her house,
plus or minus the waterline.
Schultz, who said she also has
riparian rights to access the
water, claims it is her private
beach, and not just beach-
front property.
"Wherever the sand is wet,
people have the right to,

walk," she said.
But the jury didn't agree.
Said Schultz, "I think they
wanted to support the idea of
a public beach."
But Mack said the public is
allowed anywhere seaward of
the high mean water line,
which can include dry sand.
She added that Schultz does
not have any submerged
property rights.
"She believes the people
who have beachfront proper-
ty own the beach," Mack said.
Schultz, who has lived on
Manasota Key for 32 years,
has been in disputes with
public officials over whether
the beach belongs to her
since the mid-1980s.
She said even sea turtle


officers aren't allowed on her
property.
In 2002, she and county
officials had a dispute over a
sign she put up declaring the
beach private.
But county officials said
Thursday that they do not
regulate beach access.
"It's not a county issue, it's
a state issue," said Chuck
Mopps, dredging and coastal
programs specialist.
Schultz said she will con-
tinue to call authorities
about people she considers
to be trespassing on her
property.

we were developing all the

When May 1945 arrived

Philbrick and his unit were

Japan.
"We took a 58-day boat

"We were actually on our way

What do you bid now?
A Partner's reverse shows a good
hand, so you might need a lot of
space to investigate possibilities. Bid
three clubs. These days, that is not a
signoff. You are setting the trump

without fear that it will end short of
game.

Partner opens the bidding with an
artificial game force of two clubs.
What do you respond?
A Normally, to make a positive
response you need at least a five-
card suit headed by two of the three
top honors. Here, however, your
sixth spade and outside king are
surely as good as the queen of

A While a one-club opening bid
seems automatic, what do you intend
rebidding over almost any response

the stomach. Open one no trump

There are no secrets to

BY DIANNE COGBURN
GUEST COLUMNIST


A new year and another
diet, but the question of
which diet to choose has
become very controversial
even among health and nutri-
tion experts.
Americans continue to
spend billions of dollars in
search of the miracle diet, pill,
potion or lotion that will take
unwanted pounds off in-
stantly. Recent study, report-
ed in the Journal of the

diets to try to determine the
best diet for weight loss and
health.
They randomly assigned
160 people to four different
diets Atkin's, WeightWatch-
ers, Ornish and the Zone diet
and then followed them for
one year. They found that the
specific nutrient composition
of a diet was not the key to
.successful weight loss. The
most important factor in
weight loss success was


adhering to any of the four
diet plans.
Most people did not lose
weight, for the simple reason
that' they stopped following

BACK OF THE PACK

A random thought occur-
red to me Thursday night as I
settled down following a late
night at work, waited for
David Letterman's mono-
logue and tried eating an en-
tire three-meat frozen pizza
that was still too hot and
burning the roof of my
mouth.
Would this be a good meal
the night before running the
Gasparilla Marathon on Feb.
6? Sure it tastes great, but do
puddles of grease, meat and
cheese mix well eight hours
before running 26.2 miles as
fast as I can?
This and other ponderies
weigh on my mind as I'll
attempt my third marathon
ever and first one in two years.
I've logged the miles consis-
tently the previous eight
months, and unlike 2002, I
want to do more than just fin-
ish.
The final countdown to
marathon day does create
plenty of second guessing. For
me, my greatest weakness is
not doing enough long runs
of 20 miles or more.
Actually, I've done none.
My top-out training run has
been four 18.5-milers. Other
than those, Saturday long

runs have only been around
12 to 15 miles.
In other words, I'm beg-
ging to hit "the wall" during
the marathon around mile 18
or 19 by not doing enough
long runs.
Too late now
Ten days before a mara-
thon is too late for miracle
training runs to help me
break the 4-hour mark in the
Tampa marathon. The No-
vember issue of Runner's
World, however, does offer
some training tips on that
finalweek.
Here's what the experts
there have to say:
Reduce miles Only do
40 percent of your peak week-
ly mileage, and keep the pace
nice and easy.
Two goals Have two
race-day goals: Your ultimate
time, and a backup plan in
case you're having a bad run.
This can help keep you moti-
vated during those tough
miles.
Eat carbs, not fats -
Focus on eating foods like
pasta, bread, potatoes, fruit
and low-fat milk These are
the ultimate runner fuels.


Guess that means no more
meat-lover pizzas for me.
There are more tips online
at runnersworld.com.
Are you running?
So I've paid my registration
fee, and will be hitting the
Tampa roads when the gun
fires at 6 a.m. Feb. 6. Hope to
see you there.
If you are running, drop
me an e-mail by Friday with
your name, city, age and
marathon goal. Let's try to
keep in touch and possibly
publish how marathon run-
ners from Venice, Nokomis,

WEIGHT from page9B
devote the time and effort
that it takes to make a diet
and lifestyle change. They
want a quick fix and expect to
reach their weight loss goal in
an unrealistic time frame.
Many people also under-
estimate the amount of food
that they really are eating and
make the excuse that they
have a low metabolism. The
majority of people have the
physical ability to lose weight
if they truly create a calorie
deficit.
The key strategies to
weight control remain the
same and are the following:
If you are not physically
active, get moving.
If you are moving and still
overweight, move more and
build muscle.
If you think you are mov-
ing enough, hire an exercise
expert to assess your program
and develop a personal train-
ing program that will produce


results.
The new 2005 Dietary
Guidelines have just been
released and recommend ex-
ercising between 30-90 min-
utes per day. A survey of high
school students reported that
they watched TV for three
hours daily.
We have become a nation
of sedentary people, and we
need to get moving.
The right diet
The "dietary holy grail"
would be a diet that controls
hunger, is pleasing and satis-
fying, meets your body's
needs for energy and nutri-
ents, and minimizes the risk
for chronic disease.
Research supports that
there is not one diet that is
best for all of us. Each person
must find a diet plan that they
can follow for a lifetime.
You can begin the search
by evaluating your current
diet. Keep a record of every-
thing you eat and drink.


Studies have shown that peo-
ple that keep a "food diary"
are more successful with
weight loss. Most people
underestimate the amount of
food that they actually con-
sume.
A food record enables you
and or a nutrition expert to
have a realistic view of your
diet and the changes that you
have to make in order to lose
weight.
Become accountable
You must choose a diet
plan and stick to the plan. You
can count daily calories, use
,food exchanges, join a group
such as Weight Watchers or
meet with a diet expert.
People that say that they
are going to "just cut back"
often decrease their calorie
intake but not enough to see a
difference on the scale. They
.get frustrated and feel that
they are doomed to failure -
sounds familiar?
People are more successful


following a simple plan and
being accountable to some-
one for weight and goal mon-
itoring.
Defensive eating
Do you purchase a new
outfit without looking at the
cost?
Keep track of the calories
in the foods that you eat and
know your numbers.
You need to know the calo-
ries of the foods and fluids that
you choose and spend your
calories wisely.
Do not waste your calories;
eat foods everyday that are
pleasing to you so you can
stick to the diet.
Small portions
Our society has become
desensitized to proper por-
tions. A fast food chain is cur-
rently offering a burger that
exceeds the average adult's
calories for the day!
The super-size option has
helped us attain the spare tire


around our waistline.
Behavior change
Probably the most com-
mon behavior that is a calorie
buster is eating after dinner.
Many people create a calo-
rie deficit for the day and then
ruin it with snacks at night.
Do you fill your car with gas
when the take reads full?
We fill our bodies with
food when we do not need
any more fuel for the day. We
need to satisfy our souls with
non-food activities.
Final thoughts
In the recent TV series
"The Biggest Loser," millions
of Americans tuned in to see
the participants sweat and
starve to take off the needed
pounds.
This was a very realistic
view of the work required to
really be successful with
weight loss.
Many people are not suc-
cessful with losing weight


because they do not create
the calorie deficit required to
take off the unwanted
pounds.
I have been helping people
lose weight for more than 20
years and the recommenda-
tions of eating less and mov-
ing more continues to be
true.
At the YMCA and the FBU
(Feel Better University) ser-
ies, we help you to formulate
an individual diet and exer-
cise plan through our lec-
tures and informal group
discussions.
This lecture series is a great
way to begin a "diet for life." If
you are tired of making New
Year's resolutions that are
broken in a day, join our lec-
tures to help you develop
your own diet for life.
In 2005, are you going to
eat to live or live to eat?

nutrition and fitness expert
