VHA plan



premature

No developer has had serious
talks about the future of 59
acres at the Laurel Road and
Interstate 75 intersection.

BY J J. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

An e-mail and draft plan of a mas-
sive expansion by Venice Housing
Authority has crossed Lamr Arnold's
desk at the Sarasota County planning
department.
The manager of community devel-
opment only gave it a "casual" look,
and said no one knows the future for
59 acres of county-owned land in the
northwestern comer of Laurel Road
and Interstate 75.
"There has not been, is not and is
not going to be at any point in the
future negotiations with anyone,"
Arnold said. "(Future ownership) will
be a competitive process."
VHA Executive Director Peter Lo-
pez has asked city council for permis-
sion to open negotiations with county-
,' officials concerning the land. A con-
cept plan has been drawn up by Lopez
for 200 low-income townhouses, 50
one-bedroom apartments for the
elderly and 50 for those with special
needs. The idea also would include 80
single-family homes at regulated,
affordable housing prices.-
Key to this ambitious project would
be acquiring the land, now owned by
the county. Lopez's memo states the
S county is willing to deed the land to a
developer willing to spend $5 million
on infrastrucrtre and road improve-
ments.
Sarasota County doesn't even know
if the property will be for sale, let alone
how many acres v.ill be available or
the terms for exchanging ownership,
Arnold said.-

An empty and worn com-
mnercial building just off
downtown Venice's main strip
is finally getting spruced up.
Florida Sunshine Proper-
ties has begun demolition
work on the exterior of the
former Kwik Stop conve-
nience store at the intersec-
tion of Nokomis and Miami
avenues. The vacant building
will eventually house up to
four retail or office tenants.


said Howard Berk, agent with
owner Florida Sunshine Prop-
erties.
Last March, the owner was
denied a rezoning request by
the Venice Planning Commis-'
sion, mainly because it would
have allowed the site to use
public parking instead of pro-
viding its own.
"We're planning on remod-
eling it into a retail store or a
professional office, whatever
the need will be," Berk said.
The number of tenants will
greatly depend on who it is,


Berk said. The existing struc-
ture, listed at nearly 5,000
square feet by the county
property appraiser, could be
home to only one business if
it needs the entire space.
No building permits have
been applied for, and right
now no tenants have signed a
lease, Berk said.
Demolition is limited to
the facade and two attached
buildings, according to the
permit on file with the city.

Parents who want their
children to attend a school
other than the one'they are
districted to will have the
opportunity to submit a
school choice application
from Feb. 7 to 25, according to
Sarasota County school offi-
cials.
Choice selections will be
approved through a lottery
process, not on a first-come,
first-served basis. Parents will
be notified of choice assign-
ments by late March.
Students who wish to


move from a school that does
not to meet federal Adequate
Yearly Progress standards will
be served first.
After those priorities are
met, others who wish to
switch schools for whatever
reason will be served, Storms
said.
"The choice program serv-
es a dual purpose," said Bill
Storms, supervisor of student
assignments, Sarasota Coun-
ty Schools.
Federal AYP
Students have priority if
their schools receive federal
Title I funds and, for two years


in a row, failed to meet Ade-

school must meet the same
performance standards.
The populations on which
AYP is based include the total
population at the school and

County schools honored



for hurricane assistance


Charlotte County sent representatives to thank its
northern neighbor for help getting school started
again in the aftermath of Hurricane Charley.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


A contingent from the
Charlotte County School Dis-
trict presented a plaque to the
Sarasota County School Dis-
trict on Feb. 1 for its help dur-
ing Hurricane Charley.
Lee Swift,, Charlotte Coun-
ty School Board member, and
Dr. Davis Gayler, superinten-
dent, led the group. Also in
attendance were Donna Wid-
meyer, assistant superinten-
dent, and Jerry Oligo, director
of maintenance and opera-
tions.
Each extended apprecia-
tion for all the facilities and
student services personnel on
loan from Sarasota following
the hurricane.
"We never could have
opened our doors within two
weeks after Hurricane Char-
ley had it not been for sup-
port from your district," said
Oligo.
Sarasota County schools
sent down 50 staff, mosdy
from the construction and fa-
cilities department and pupil
support services, to help with
the hurricane aftermath.
Whattheydid
First, facilities workers
were brought in to help evalu-
ate whether schools were go-
ing to be usable, make physi-
cal repairs and clean the


schools of debris.
Ellery Gerard, executive
director of bus support ser-
vices, was singled out for his
contribution. Gerard worked
with FEMA when Hurricane
Andrew came through South
Florida back in 1992. Gerard
spent two weeks guiding
Charlotte County schools
step by step through needed
repairs and activities.
"His knowledge and exper-
tise was invaluable," Oligo
said. "He just knew all the pit-
falls and what needed to be
done."
Once the facilities depart-
ment left, Sarasota provided
another cadre of pupil sup-
port professionals to assist
Charlotte County, schools.
Upon reopening some of the
schools, Sarasota's guidance
counselors and psychologists
moved in to help students
and teachers cope.
."The facilities people,
plumbers, bus drivers, coun-
selors, psychologists all
worked tirelessly right along-
side our staff from morning
until night, day after day,"
Oligo said.
Good partners
Oligo's personal nightmare
began on Friday the 13th last
August. when Hurricane
Charlie tore the roof off his
own home. Without hesita-
tion, Oligo went to the school


district to survey the damage.
Eight schools initially sur-
veyed would need to be
closed, he reported.
Two of the schools would
subsequently reopen within
two weeks after the devasta-
tion, along with others.
Four schools remain clos-
ed Neil Armstrong Ele-
mentary, Peace River Ele-
mentary, Punta Gorda Middle
and Charlotte High schools
currently share school facili-
ties. All four will be rebuilt.
Next year Neil Armstrong
Elementary students will
move into a portable school
(modulars strung together) in
the back yard of Port Char-
lotte Middle School. Peace
River Elementary students
will move into their own
portable school on its existing
campus.
SPunta Gorda Middle
School and Charlotte High
School are expected to move
off double sessions by the end
of April, completing their
recovery from the 2004 hurri-
cane season, Gayler said.
S"They say out of crisis and
chaos comes knowledge and
strength. We learned a lot
about our school district, and
we learned who our friends
are," Swift said. "Your district
is a very good friend.
"We survived by being
good partners. We are forever
indebted. God willing, it's a
debt we hope never to have to
repay.

Red tide bloom reported in area


BY GAVIN OFF
STAFF WRITER

Area residents may soon
get choked up about going to
the beach.
The red-tide bloom that
originated near Cedar Key has
expanded south toward Eng-
lewdod, said Nadine Slirnak of
Mote Marine Laboratory.
The bloom stretches north
to Tarpon Springs and about
50 miles into die Gulf.
The strongest concentra-
tion is off Englewood, she.
said. although people at the
beach Tuesday said they had.
seen no hint of it.
It is unclear where -the
bloom will move next or how
long it will stay in the area.
"It all depends on the
wxinds and the water current,"
Slimnak said.
Florida's red tide is a natur-
al phenomenon, resulting
from dense concentrations of

microscopic, plant-like or-;
ganisms called blooms.
ItIt can cause! watery eyes,
coughing, itchy throats and a
tingling feeling in the arms
and legs. Symptoms usually
disappear within hours of
exposure.
The blooms can also kill
large numbers of fish and
contaminate oysters ..and
clams. .
Lifeguards in Sarasota re-
ported seeing a few dead fish.
"So. far nothing major,"


Slimak said. ..
Understudy
Englewood seemed largely
free of red tide Tuesday. Palm
Island Marina received no
reports about the bloom, and
fishermen, walkers and sun-
bathers took to Manasota
Key's beaches without notic-
ing anything strange in the
air.
"I've been here a while and
I haven't smelled anything,"
said snowbird Thomas Cole.

Residents set future city service priorities


SUN PHOTO BY JEFFTAVARES, jtavares@venicegondolier.com
John Osmulski, chairman of the Venice Planning Commission, addresses the audience at the
most recent Envision Venice meeting.


BY DAVID SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

In an effort to shape future
city priorities, nearly 80 resi-
dents shared their opinions
Tuesday night at Grace United
Methodist Church.
The meeting, part of the
Envision Venice series, was
designed to record and direct
residents' opinions on a wide
array of future city issues as
part of the process of amend-
ing the city's comprehensive
plan. Tuesday's topic was pub-
lic service.
Before the start of the meet-
ing residents were urged to
help support the process.
"We need you to be ambas-
sadors and get out and talk to
your neighbors," said John
Osmulski, chair of the Venice
Planning Commission.
Residents were asked to
share their opinions on seven
topics: culture-community
identity, public safety, health,
education, and quality of life
issues on the stages of life,
accessibility and working-age
adults.
Residents were assigned a
particular color and topic and
issued three dots per topic and
issue. They then placed the


Fines dished out in first backflow cases


Code board levies $125 a day fines
for five property owners if utility pipes
aren't updated by March.


BY DAVID SCOTT
STAFF WRITER


Five city .water customers
face $125 a day fines starting
in March if they do not install
backflow assemblies to their
water pipes.
And there's 12,000 more
property locations left to be
checked.
1Municipal Code Enforce-
m ent Board levied the firsf
fines Thursday for failure to
install backflow assembly de-
vices to water pipes. Backflow
assemblies ,prevent water
from backing up arid contam-
inating the public supply.


Code board members had
a lengthy discussion before
deciding on the fine amount
of $125 a day.
The property owners Were
given until the next code
board meeting to correct the
problem before fines begin
piling up. .
"This is not a minor is-
sue," said board member,Joe
Daltori. -
Two of e seVen cases are
not facing 'fines. One of dihe
Sarasota County Board of
Education's schools, Gulf
Coast Marine Institute, was
brought into compliance
recently, and Whispering


Sands condominiums, 1225
Avenida del Circo, was under
contract with a plumber to
install the device.
Five other properties were
not so lucky Albert Minger
at 322 Warfield Ave., Lindhill
Properties at 124 Indian Ave.,
Island Car Wash at 240 Ba-
liama St., Holiday Apart-
ments at 708 Tamiami Trail,
and Gulf Side Villas at 709
Barcelona Ave. all will be
fined $125 a day in March if
certified backflow devices are
not installed, explained code
board chair Diana Mier after
the meeting.
Much of the debate cenr
tered around residents' ability
to have the devices installed
and then tested annually.
Adding to the problem is that
there are only 200 people
licensed for this type of work


in the area, according to John
Newburn, water distribution
superintendent with the utili-
ties department.
On top of that, Newburn
stated, many residents still
are unaware the ordinance is
now being enforced in Venice,
after being ignored for years.
In accordance with state law,
the city notified 400 residents
last month of the require-
ment of testing their backflow
device or face potential fines.
'In an effort to inform the
public about the ordinance,
the utilities department will be'
have an informational meet-
ing March 3. Newburn en-
couraged: residents to.. attend
the meeting.

garding the ordinance, visit

determined to be the best and
most important.
Some residents liked the
immediacy of seeing the opin-

"It was interesting to see
which topics that the majority
of dots were placed,"said resi-
dent Marty Dover.
More voices
The topics with the most
dots were to be part of the pri-

after several residents took
issue with placement of a
public works topic, Kathy

"We are a city of 20,000

"We'll get exactly what we

City officials stated that
such ideas might be possible,

VHA from page 1 A
Officials plan to link Laurel
Road with State Route 681 as
part of the Honore Avenue-
Pinebrook Road extension.
Estimated cost for the entire
3.8-mile, four-lane road ex-
tension is $53 million, and it
runs right through the 59
acres VHA is looking at.
"I wanted to make it very
clear, any indication there
had been any serious conver-
sation or discussion with VHA
or anyone else would be very
premature and inappropriate
at this time," Arnold said.
Uncommitted
The county hasn't even de-
cided the path of its new road,
though commissioners will


most likely decide in March,
Arnold said. Design work then
must be done to establish
drainage and county uses.
Following that, the county
must determine if it needs the
land for future government
purposes or if it's surplus
property.
Only then, potentially
years from now, can the
county negotiate with anyone
about selling the property,
Arnold said.
Lopez' memo to City Man-
ager Marty Black does not say
any type of agreement or
negotiations had taken place
with the county.
It actually asks for permis-
sion because the property is
just outside of city limits,
requiring city council ap-


proval for VHA to conduct
negotiations.
Lopez did offer a timeline
goal of acquiring the land by
the end of 2005 and being
well into construction by the
end of 2006.
The county cannot offer a
timeline for when the proper-
ty's future is decided, but
Arnold said the VHA's plan is
premature.
"I just thought that was very
early for that, and that's proba-
bly what I would say to the city
manager," Arnold said.
"To my knowledge, there
have been no conversations
or commitments of any sub-
stance on this property. Yeah,
we've gotten calls, but there
are no commitments," he
said.


KWIK fr.I 1A


There has been a recent
push to mix commercial with
residential apartments or
condominiums overtop busi-
nesses in the downtown area.
Berk said there are no plans to
mix in residential.
"We would have to start
the process all over again,
and I don't know that we
would want to do that," Berk
said.


Old history
Parking was the major
issue last March at planning
commission. Some down-
town business groups ex-
pressed support of rezoning
while others objected, based
mostly on the limited park-
ing.
Testimony was that up to
an estimated 40 spots would
be needed if a restaurant were


put in, but the lot could only
handle up to 17 spaces. Com-
mercial intensive zoning re-
quires one parking spot for
every three restaurant seats,
but the requested commer-
cial business district allows
public parking within 900 feet
to be used.
There are 175 public park-

however, transportation is

These Sarasota County

AYP standards, so students
must be offered the chance to
"choice out" to another
school:
Elementary Alta Vista,

High none


"The bottom line is we don't
over-enroll a school when
offering choice," Storms said.

Fewer options for school
choice at open schools will be
available this year, officials
said. Increased community
growth has severely affected
the number of seats open for

opening soon in North Port

expected to ease some of the

Last year parents applied
on behalf of 893 children; al-
most 600 students were plac-
ed. Those who weren't placed,
but requested it, went on a
waiting list, but the list tends
not to move, Storms said.
Fewer applicants
The number of choice
applicants in the district has
been declining.
"Parents realize the signifi-
cance of changes being made
in our public schools," Storms
said. "They're not as afraid of
the AYP status of schools.
Almost all of the schools iden-
tified as not meeting AYP cri-
teria received a grade of B or
higher from the Florida De-
partment of Education."
Parents seem pleased with
the individual school efforts to
help their children. They're
staying to take advantage of
gains made right in their own
neighborhood school, he said.
Children will automatical-
lybe assigned to their district-
ed or current school unless an
application is received.
Choice application forms
are available at all public
schools or by calling 927-
9000, Ext. 32265.

Pie in the sky
According to police
records, the victim, who is
from Cape Coral, came to
Venice to meet with Mulligan
after he learned about the
deal.
The victim claims he was
told by someone who knew
Mulligan that Mulligan could
get a couple of military Hum-
vees for $9,000 each and resell
them for $12,000-$15,000 dol-
lars apiece.
"It was pie in the sky,"
Dunn said.
Mulligan told the victim
that he was working with a
man named Art out of Atlanta
who could get the product.
The victim agreed to buy
two of the Humvees. On
March 3, 2003, the victim


wired $18,000 to the AmSouth
Bank account of Shamrock
Motors.
The paperwork the victim
received stated that the vehi-
cles would be delivered in
about three to four weeks.
Art's the man
The victim never got the
Humvees, so he and the mid-
dleman talked.
"He (the middleman) told
the victim that he had beeri
told that the deal had been
stalled due to the invasion of
Iraq and the need to put sur-
plus vehicles back into ser-
vice," Dunn wrote in his re-
port.
Meanwhile, Dunn talked
with the man called Art in his
Atlanta dealership. Dunn said


HUMVEE
HMMWV (High-Mobility
Multipurpose Wheeled
Vehicle is a light, highly
mobile, diesel-powered. four-
wheel-drive vehicle equipped
with an automatic transmis-
sion designed to replace the
obsolete military Jeep. For a
mere few thousand dollars,
they can apparently be made
street legal for civilians.

Source: Internet, key word
Humvee



Art had a brother-in-law who
worked security at an army
base in Georgia, and that he
was the one who first came to


Art with talk about buying the
Humvees.
Art apparently talked to
Mulligan about putting to-
gether ,a Humvee deal, but
never made any promises,
according to the report. Art
later explained -that the
scheme never evolved any
further than the planning
stages because of the Iraqi
invasion.
Art also told Dunn that
Mulligan got "too excited"
about the deal, and was call-
ing him constantly.
Pyramid
Not only did Mulligan not
come through with the vic-
tim's Humvees, but he also
reneged on at least one other
deal involving the military


vehicles.
That is when the deal start-
ed resembling a pyramid
scheme, where investors who
come in at the bottom fi-
nance those at the top.-
Bank records showed the
$18,000 wire transfer on
March 3. On March 4, Mulli-
gan withdrew the $18,000 in
the form of an official bank
check payable to a Sarasota
auto dealer.
The owner told investiga-
tors Mulligan had approach-
ed him and some other in-
vestors with the Humvee
deal.
The owner said he gave
Mulligan money for the vehi-
cles on behalf of himself and
the other investors.
He said Mulligan never de-


livered the Humvees and, fur-
thermore, had written a
worthless check as repay-
ment.
"In fact, he used (the first.
victim's) money to make
refunds on other deals on
which he was not able to
deliver," Dunn concluded in
his report.
Dunn said while police
did not have any prior rec-
ords on Mulligan, the Florida
Department of Motor Ve-
hicles did.
"He had problems deliver-
ing titles," Dunn said. "He's
shut down."

County attorney


discusses office


BYWARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR

Members of the Southwest
County Alliance of Home-
owners Associations got an
inside look at the workings of
a little-known but widely in-
fluential county office.
Sarasota County Attorney
Steve DeMarsh spent an hour
Thursday morning discussing
the work of his office and his
role as the county's legal advi-
sor with approximately 50
members of the group.
DeMarsh was appointed
county attorney in a unani-
mous vote by commissioners
last October following the res-
ignation ofJorge Fernandez to
accept a similar position with
the city of Miami. Fernandez
had been the county attorney

erate income levels in Sara-
sota County entitled to the

gible residents in filing their
taxes so they can receive the
credit.
Eligible residents can re-

The Earned Income Tax
Credit is a refundable federal
income tax credit for low-
income working individuals
and families. Congress origi-
nally approved the legislation
in 1975 in part to offset the
burden of Social Security tax-
es and to provide an incentive
to work.
When the EITC exceeds the
amount of taxes owed, it
results in a tax refund to those
who claim and qualify for the
credit.
To qualify, taxpayers must
meet certain requirements
and file a tax return, even if
they did not earn enough
money to be obligated to file a
tax return.
Sarasota County govern-
ment created an EITC Task
Force to assist people become
more aware of this opportuni-
ty and to help eligible resi-
dents in accessing quick filing
(e-file) sites.


since 1991, a year before De-
Marsh joined his staff.
DeMarsh joined the coun-
ty attorney's staff in 1992 after
a stint representing the city of
Venice in land use and real
estate issues.
DeMarsh also engaged in
private practice in Venice
from 1981 to 1992, concen-
trating on local government,
real estate, banking and busi-
ness law.
A graduate of Ohio State
University's College of Law,
DeMarsh said he came to
Florida three days after grad-
uating from law school with-
out a job.
"This has turned out to be
a wonderful area for me," he
said.
As the county's top legal
eagle, DeMarsh oversees a
staff that includes nine attor-
neys and 22 other, paralegals
and secretaries.
His office provides pro-
vides in-house legal service,
advice, and representation to
the county commissioners,
county administration and
the other elected officials at a
cost that averages $100 per
hour.
One unnamed member of
the audience said she found
that very reasonable com-
pared to her son's office in
California that charged $450
per hour.
DeMarsh said almost one-
forth of the office's time was
spent in representing the
sheriff, primarily in civil rights

Indian booters dropped from playoffs in OT


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


"Great season," said one
parent. "You played a heck
of a game," added another.
Coach Michael James hugged
his seniors.
But no matter what kind
of compliment bestowed on
the Venice High boys soccer
players as they walked off
the Manatee High pitch
Wednesday night, it couldn't
really ease the pain.
The Indians saw their
season end with a tough 1-0
loss to the host Hurricanes
in a match that was decided
in the final minutes of over-
time.
Manatee (13-8-3) lives on
to play in Friday night's
Class 5A District 11 champi-
onship match.
Venice suddenly saw its
season end at 12-6-3.
Venice went into the
match as the favorite. The
Indians were seeded second
in the tourney and had al-
ready defeated third-seed
Manatee twice during the
regular season.
But defeating a team a
third time, especially on their
home turf, can indeed, be
difficult.
"It was a good game,"


James said. "They're a well
coached squad."
During the regular season,
Venice scored three times in
each meeting. There was
none of that Wednesday.
"The difference was they
solidified their defense,"
James said. "They were well-
organized defensively."
A tight box made it tough
for Venice to penetrate in
the second half and overtime
session.
The Indians did have their
chances early in the match
but were turned away by
Hurricane keeper Robert
Highley. Venice took the play
to Manatee throughout the
first half.
"He made some incred-
ible saves," James said.
Manatee had four excel-
lent scoring opportunities in
the second half. Three were
just wide. Another clanged
off the crossbar. Indian keep-
er Gabe Agudelo came up
with two key saves.
In the overtime, each team
had free kicks but couldn't
convert. Then with under
two minutes to go, Venice
was whistled for another
foul just outside the box on
a play that appeared offside.
This time, the Hurricanes
made good.


Sean Pittman passed to
left of the Venice wall to a
waiting Christian Raudaules
at the back post. The fresh-
man redirected past Agudelo
for the winner.
The loss was particularly
tough on the Venice seniors


who played a whale of a
match. Paul Siegel, Eric
Monville, Erich Hess and
Marc Laird left it all on the
field with superlative efforts.
They will be missed next
season.

Vikings need


a victory


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


After getting off to an 0-2
start, the Venice Vikings minor
league football team is desper-
ate for a win ... any win.
It won't come easy this
Saturday, as the Cape Coral
Fear will bring a highly-
competitive squad to Powell-
Davis Stadium for a 7 p.m.
kickoff in a Southern States
Football League game.
The Fear are also 0-2 in the
SSFL AFC West and have
played the same two teams
that the Vikings have.
The Fear battled the St.
Petersburg Sharks much
tougher than the Vikings did
last Saturday. The Fear lost
30-16 in week one. The Vikes
tumbled 66-0.
On the other hand, the
Vikings played the Bradenton
Gladiators tougher than Cape
Coral team. The Vikes lost
27-21 in overtime. The Fear
fell 35-9.
In the SSFL Power Rank-
ings, the Fear are slightly
higher than the Vikings. The
Fear are 13th out of the 16
teams while Venice is 14th.
The teams have the same
positions in overall offense. In
overall defense, Cape Coral
is ranked eighth while the
Vikings are dead last.
On the SSFL website,
Gridiron Abbey has the Fear a
five-point favorite over the
Vikings this Saturday.
The two teams are sched-
uled for a Feb. 26 rematch in
Cape Coral.
In last year's meeting, Cape
Coral thrashed the Vikings,
38-7.

Much of Venice's success
Saturday will revolve around
how healthy the team is.
It's awful early for injuries
-to be playing a major factor,
but the Vikes have gotten a
little banged up their first
two games.
In weak one, defensive
tackle Rick Shiaw and running
back Chauncey Jones were
hurt. Last week, quarterback


Torry Johnson went out with
a sprained knee.
Jones came back and play-
ed in St. Pete. Shaw sat out
but is expected back this
Saturday. Johnson had a MRI
on his knee Thursday. He
was hurt in the first quarter
against St. Pete.
If Johnson can't go, Tim
Howard and Shawn Phelps
are ready to go.
The main thing the Vikings
must do is cut down on
turnovers. They had a whop-
ping seven of them against
the Sharks las weekend.

Saturday night is "Jersey
Night" at Powell-Davis Sta-
dium. Kids wearing a jersey
will get in free. Otherwise,
admission is $5 for adults
and $3 for students.
A portion of the proceeds
raised will go to Pop Warner
Football, Rotary Futures Club
at Venice High, the new
Wellness Center at VHS and
the Sertoma Speech Clinic.
Concessions are also avail-
able at all Vikings games.
Kids can come out early
and meet the players at 6:30
p.m. Powell-Davis Stadium is
located on the Venice High
campus at 1 Indian Ave.

Howard answers bell for Vikings


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

A football team can't have
enough athletes like Tim
Howard.
The versatile player out of
Sarasota helps the Venice
Vikings by playing many posi-
tions.
In the Vikes season open-
er against the Bradenton
Gladiators, Howard played
running back and scored one
of his team's three touch-
downs. He showed great sec-
ond effort on a three-yard
scoring run.
Howard also works in
practice as the backup quar-
terback to Torry Johnson.
When Johnson went down
with a knee injury in last
Saturday's game in St. Peters-
burg, Howard was thrown to
the Sharks.
"All of a sudden I was in
there," Howard said. "It was
difficult. They've won the
championship four years in
a row. They're disciplined.
You have to be ready men-
tally."


Howard also plays some
defense for the Vikings. He is
part of the rotation at line-
backer.
While last Saturday wasn't
a day to remember for the
Vikings, the attitude is good
and Howard believes the
team can rebound and
still put together a good sea-
son.
"I have faith in the owners,
coaching staff and my team-
mates," Howard said. "We
can improve and cut down
on the mistakes."
Howard played football at
Sarasota High in the late
1980s and early '90s. He later
played running back and
defensive end with the
Manasota Stars, a semi-pro
team out of Bradenton.
The Stars are now the
Bradenton Gladiators of the
Southern States Football
League.
Howard has known Viking
teammates Jarrett Wheeler,
Carter Bryant and Gerald
Perry for years now. He is
friends with several players
who have turned pro-- guys


Tom Howard


like Michael Hawthorne,
Courtney Washington and
Peter Warrick.
Howard has helped coach
in the Ringling Redskins
youth organization.
He still has plans to take
his game up another notch.
"I want to go to tryouts
for the new Arena2 team in
Lakewood Ranch," he said.
"I think they're in March."
In the meantime, Howard
will continue to contribute
to the Venice Vikings' cause.

Osprey residents want




safer intersection


'Killer Korner" has been on the county's list for
improvements for some time too long, accord-
ing to a county planning commissioner.


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

The pent-up exasperation
of Osprey residents over con-
tinuing delays by Sarasota
County traffic officials in cor-
recting problems at a danger-
ous intersection was revealed
earlier this week in a meeting
of the Qsprey Revitalization
Committee.
"Killer Korner," the name
residents use for the intersec-
tion of U.S. 41 and Blackburn
Point and Old Venice roads,
has been a contentious issue
for several years. Thirteen
months ago, the county
promised to begin to improve
the intersection.
First steps were to be strip-
ing the pavement on U.S. 41
for pedestrian crosswalks; an
exclusive left-turn lane (with
a left-turn arrow display on
the existing traffic light) for
vehicles going east on Black-
burn Point Road; and a shar-
ed through-right-turn lane.
Complaining residents
were told by the county that
90 percent of the design plans
for the intersection had been
completed in December
2003. Theywere.also told then
a permit for the necessary
changes was to be provided
within weeks by the Florida
Department of Transpor-
tation, which manages the
highway.


In a comment at the revi-
talization committee meet-
ing, Joseph Barbetta, a mem-
ber of the county planning
commission, charged the
county with unnecessary de-
lay.
"It's a joke," he said. "The
county says the problem is
FDOT's. FDOT says the coun-
ty is responsible.
"Someone's going to be
killed at that intersection, but
for two and a-half years, it's
been 'next month, next
month' and the project will
start. I don't even live in
Osprey, but I know how unfair
this is to the community."
Close call
Fatalities have occurred at
the intersection, according to
the county public works
department's Office of Traffic
Operations and Engineering.
,A study it did in 2002 dis-,
closed that 165 accidents
involving 344 vehicles occur-
red between January 1996
and May 2002, between Bay
Street to the north and Black-
burn Point Road. Two people
were killed in a two-vehicle
collision at the intersection,
according to the study.
Last month, a county offi-
cial told a Blackburn Point
Road resident, "We are work-
ing on different ideas to move'
(the project) along sooner."
/ The latest promise is that


the project could get under
way by next summer.
But that promise and its
predecessors haven't calmed
Osprey residents. Mrs. John
M. Perry recalled a recent
incident that, she said, "illus-
trates how risky it has become
to drive through the intersec-
tion, or turn left into 41 to go
north.
"I was waiting to make a
left turn onto 41 north. We are
supposed to wait until cars
crossing toward us from Old
Venice Road pass into Black-
burn Point Road.
'A car waiting to cross from
Old Venice," she recalled, "did
not start forward when I sig-
naled left. An impatient driver
behind me beeped his horn
to make me move, even
though I didn't have the right
of way.
"Had I panicked," she said,
"both I and the car behind me
might have moved forward,
just as the car from the oppo-
site side started toward me.
She had the right of way. We
were lucky that there was no
collision. It's almost impossi-
ble to see which direction
traffic waiting at Old Venice
Road is going to take."
A possibly apocryphal
story common to the neigh-
borhood of the intersection
reports that when the two-car
collision at the intersection
took place, an alert resident
photographed the "jaws-of-
life" extraction of the bodies
from the cars. It was mailed to
Gov. Jeb Bush, who urged res-
idents to "pressure the coun-
ty" to resolve the problem.

Osprey hoping for land rush due to new Wal-Mart SuperCenter


The entrance of Wal-Mart into the area has driven
land prices up, to the pleasure of sellers and the
distress of potential buyers hoping to be the
store's neighbor.


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


Within moments or so it
seemed--,of the appearance
of earth-moving equipment
on the Wal-Mart site in
Osprey, signs proclaiming
"Wal-Mart Has Begun"
sprouted along U.S. 41.
The signs were attached to
existing ones offering com-
mercial land for sale or lease.
Altogether, 13 sites on both
sides of the highway from
Blackburn Point Road north


to Bay Street seek buyers or
lessors.
The start of construction of
a Wal-Mart SuperCenter just
north of the U.S. Post Office
on the east side of the high-
way has been awaited with
growing impatience for al-
most three years by Osprey
residents. Simultaneously,
land values along U.S. 41 have
shot up.
In recent weeks, the asking
price for commercial proper-
ties has ranged to $40 and
more per square foot. A prop-


erty of 1.7 acres opposite the
post office has been priced at
$2,225.000. That's more than
$1 million an acre. In early
January, a Venice commercial
developer was told it could be
had for $1.7 million.
The proposed Java Hut
coffee drive-through, also on
the east side of the highway,
acquired 10,000 square feet of
land for $300,000 last No-
vember. F/S Builders, 500 feet
south, paid the same for its
site for its headquarters, built
after a used car dealership on
the sanie spot had been raz-
ed.
No more bargains
By the time that Wal-Mart
completes construction of
the SuperCenter probably


next October Henry Rod-
riguez will be getting under
way in the building of his pro-
posed Bay Street Village and
Town Center, a $150-million
complex that will include 532
townhouses and condomini-
ums, retail, office and com-
mercial space and a public
library.
Our Lady of Mount Carmel
Catholic Church will also
complete its multipurpose
building housing worship,
education, administrative
and social activities on Old
Venice Road, behind the post:
office. That explosion of con-
struction is expected to drive
commercial land prices in


Osprey even higher, in the
opinion of Barry Seidel,
American Property Group of
Sarasota Inc.
Seidel, who has been buy-
ing and selling commercial
property along U.S. 41 for 19
years, said, "I've always be-
lieved in Osprey, and people
are finally beginning to agree.
"There aren't any more
bargains to be found in Os-
prey. But it's become the cen-
ter of growth on the trail."
In November 2003, Seidel
reported that commercial
land prices along the highway
had risen $13 a square foot in
the previous 12 months, based
on the prospect of the then-


proposed Wal-Mart Super-
Center.
"That spiral upward will
continue until the Wal-Mart
opens," he predicted.
Owners of residential
properties in Osprey have-
had similar experiences. Ac-
cording to Judith Johnson,
president of the Osprey Civic
Association, homes on lots 50
feet by 100 feet on both sides
of the highway in the village
of Osprey have, for the past
year, sold for $160,000-
$190,000. Three years earlier
they were priced at $40,000.
"I guess that Osprey is the"
hot spot of the county," she
said. "I'm thrilled!"

County motor fleet becoming 'greener'


The purchase of five new hybrid vehicles bring
the county's total environmentally friendly fleet to
eight cars that run on both gas and electricity.


BYWARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR
Continuing its commit-
ment toward environmental-
ly conscious purchases, Sara-
sota County is acquiring five
new Ford
Escape hybrid
sport utility
vehicles.
The, new
vehicleswill
join three
Toyota Prius
vehicles that
average 41
miles per gal- Staub
Ion thdt the
county purchased in 2002.
"Sarasota County leads the
state in sustainability," said
commissioner Shannon
Staub. "I hope this sets us up
in being able to lead the state
in the development of hybrid
vehicles."
Sustainability is the con-
cept of maintaining the quali-
ty of life in a community with-
out damaging natural sys-
tems for future generations.
Sarasota County has
placed .sustainability at the
center of its operations by ini-
tiating sustainable policies
and internal practices, such
as the acquisition of hybrid
vehicles.
The county is the first in
the area and among the first
in the country to use the
hybrid Escape, which is iden-
tical in appearance to its non-
hybrid namesake but boasts
an Environmental Protection
Agency rating of 36 miles per
gallon in the city and 31 on
the highway.
"Sarasota Fleet Manage-
ment is committed to the
advancement of new trans-
portation technology that is
environmentally friendly,"
said JimHarriott, the county's
general manager of Trans-
portation Planning and
Transit.
Sarasota Ford is providing
the new vehicles to the coun-
ty at a cost of about $24,000
each.
Cleaning up
Hybrids earn their extra
mileage and low fuel emis-
sions by powering off both
gasoline or electric engines.
Regenerative braking systems
recharge the battery automat-
ically. ,
Previous models like the
Prius have been smaller-style
sedans, but with a five-person
seating capacity, extra cargo
room and a 1,000-pound tow-
ing capacity, the Ford Escape
is the first fully hybrid SUV
produced by a domestic
automaker. Ford claims that
drivers should be able to drive
400-500 miles on one 15-gal-
lon tank.
The Escape has been avail-

able in Florida only since the
end of January, and Sarasota
County is the first to use the


car locally. Other buyers will
have to wait until the end of
February to take possession.

ue to use the three. Prius
sedans already in the fleet,
but now that Ford has the
Hybrid Escape and will be
making other hybrid models
available, Norm West, the
county's vehicle replacement
coordinator, said the county


will likely purchase all future
hybrid vehicles from Ford.
Following an inspection in
2000, county staff realized its
fleet practices were legal but
less than ideal. Working since
then to clean up its processes
and take greater care with
materials purchases, the fleet

earned a green status last
year under the U.S. Envir-

'Nickel and Dimed' is

right on the money


i "%: "


LORRAINE COCCARO
COLUMNIST:


Author Barbara Ehrenreich
got herself into this when she
and her editor were dis-
cussing poverty and wonder-
ing how "the 4 million women
about to be booted into the
labor market by welfare re-
form were going to make it on
$6 or $7 an hour."
Then she said something
she often regretted: "Some-
one ought to do the old-fash-
ioned kind of journalism -
you know, go-0out there and
try it for themselves."
IHer editor nodded and Eh-
reiireich began her undercov-
er poverty wage jobs that be-
came her book "Nickel and
Dimed: On (Not) Getting By
in America."
She began by waitressing
near her home in Key West.
She lived on $2.43 an hour
plus tips, which had to cover
housing, groceries, uniforms,
medical and gas. She found
that if she lived 45 minutes
away the gas ate up what she
could save in rent. But living
15 minutes away, by the end
of' the month she was still
$100 in the hole.
She figured a second job
cleaning motel rooms was the
answer. After cleaning all
morning, she started wait-
ressing at 3 p.m., but it was
too much.
Four tables of customers
came in at once and all had
special requests, no patience
and too much beer to drink
while they waited.
The cook couldn't keep up
with all the orders; the kitch-
en was invaded by a yuppie
demanding his food; Joy, the
other waitress, hurled a tray
across the kitchen; and Eh-
renreich left.
The point is, she could
leave. She had a home and
family to go back to. She could
give the key to Trailer 46 to
Gail, who was "sharing a room
in a well-known downtown
flophouse for $250 a week,"
and arrange for her deposit to
be transferred to her.
But she walked out with
"no vindication ... just an
overwhelming dank sense of
failure." She couldn't make it.
. And she had forgotten to
give her tips to George, the
young, depressed Czech dish-
washer who could barely
speak English, who had to
give his "boss" a dollar out of
every $5 he earned and could
only sleep in his bed after an-
other man left it.
Listen up governor, sena-
tors and representatives, coun-
ty commissioners and city
council members. People like
this are your constituents, too.
Even the recent minimum
wage increase we voted for
does not make housing af-

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Avoid becoming Los Angeles of the East


fordable here. Nor does that
minimum wage mean low-
wage workers can now afford
a doctor or medicine, much
less health insurance.
These workers, dear read-
er, subsidize our restaurants,
motels and hotels, our clean-
ing companies and (other
businesses like landscaping
and retail through their cheap
labor. They subsidize our
middle- and upper-class style
of living.
Ehrenreich decided to try
Maine next to see if she could
do better there. Figuring that
two jobs right away would the
best solution, she became an
aide at a nursing home for
Alzheimer's patients and a
cleaning woman for The
Maids. At the latter job she
earned $6.65 an hour and was
shortchanged a half hour a
day. The Maids company col-
lected $25 an hour from the
homeowner. .
A food pantry and a clinic
that Ehrenreich had to use
helped but it took money for
phone calls and determina-
tion to find a food pantry that
was open when she wasn't
working.
When two of her fellow
workers at the nursing home.
were absent, she managed
feeding all her patients by
herself. Not a word of praise
for her efforts. Thankless was
the tone at The Maids, as was
true of most of the jobs: Stress
and anxiety were the usual
returns.
Next Ehrenreich was off to
N innesota to live in an unaf-'
fordable room with' a door
that didn't lock, a window that
had no screen or shade, no air
conditioning and no kitchen
a slum room. Some of the
residents and the proximity to
the highway left Ehrenreich
waking on and off all night in.
fear and scratching from an
unknown cause.
Finallyleaving that "rat hole"
- a great example of exploiting
the poor Ehrenreich moved'
into a Comfort Inn for $5.05
less a day and a good night's
sleep for her next day's work at
Wal-Mart- another revelation
of exploitation.:
In only 221 pages of this
long-running best-seller, Eh-
renreich brings a "you are
there" feeling while you are
very glad you are not there.
You want no part of the drea-
riness, stress and anxiety.
Ehrenreich sums up: "The
'working poor,' as they are
approvingly termed, are in
fact the major philanthropists
,of our society. They neglect
their own children so that the
children of others will be
cared for; they live in substan-
dard housing so that other
homes will be shiny and per-
fect; they endure privation so
that inflation will be low and
stock prices high. To be a
member of the working poor
is to be an anonymous donor,
a nameless benefactor, to
everyone else."
They don't get by. And as
you can see, the enemy is us.

New palm trees are
a real education
Editor:
. How exciting it was for me
to move to the Venice area,
where school kids have
received all possible educa-
tional benefits. Class size
must be optimal, and teacher
salaries are, of course, the
highest in the state. Com-
puters must abound in the
classrooms, and no child is
ever left behind. Hurray for
Venice. The new majool palm
trees must be a celebration of


these accomplishments.
When the school buses
drive, down the tree-lined
streets, there should be a
hushed, reverent silence
inside. Perhaps 'field trips
could come to fondle and
admire the trees. Math classes
could multiply $4,500 times
28. English students may
want to write tree poetry,
such as "I think that I shall
never see a tree as expensive
and frivolous as thee!" Social
studies classes could research
the nonnative dateless trees
and their fascinating history.


The integration of this tree
into education is endless.
Venice really cares about kids
in a "Pigs ii Paradise's ear".

These are critical compo-'
nents in a plan that, when
done properly, enhances
everyone's enjoyment of our
community.
The format has been ep-
tablished to encourage both
individual input and group
discussions. All ideas are
recorded and discussed for
full consideration.
We are indeed fortunate to
have a first-class planning
department at Venice City
Hall. Let's get out, get involv-
ed and support them and give
them the input they need to
make Venice even better. As
they say, if we don't put our
ideas forward now we can't
complain later.
So, make a difference:
Tuesday, Feb. 8, from 6 to 8
p.m. at the Church of the
Nazarene; Wednesday, Feb. 9,
from 6 to 8 p.m.'at the Sal-
vation Army; and Thursday,
Feb. 10, from 2 to 4 p.m. atVil-
lage On The Isle.
See you there.

Editor:
I have lived in Sarasota for 35 years. I have seen what uncon-
trolled sprawl and development have done to Siesta Key.
Longboat Key and now downtown Sarasota.
They are paving the county one piece at a time. Its beauty
and small-town friendliness have given way to mega-condo-
miniums and retail complexes.
The Venice Planning Conunission should drive down Main
Street in Sarasota from 301. Head west into the concrete
canyon, before turning on to U.S. 41, where more monstrosi-
ties dot the skyline and block out any view of our once-beauti-
ful bay.
My wife and I drive to,Venice three or more times each
month to walk Venice Avenue, ride our bikes on the wide and
sweeping boulevards adjoining it and Harbor Drive and along
the bike path that leads to Caspersen Beach. We love the
homey, small-town atmosphere that Venice provides.
As soon as I retire from the county, we hope to purchase a
home in the Venice area. I will not and cannot stay in Sarasota.
Soon it will be just the same as any other East Coast honey-
comb of condos and skyscrapers. They have truly ruined par-.
'adise in the name of progress.
Please try to maintain that small-town, folksy, come-rock-
on-the-porch-with-me feeling that makes Venice what it truly
is --a jewel reflecting all of the values and reasons that attract-'
ed people to Florida living. If you won't take a stand soon, we
are certain to become the East Coast Los Angeles.
I ask the council members to please reevaluate their posi-
tion on height restrictions.

Social Security must change in order to provide for future generations


RICHARD F. CURCIO
GUEST COLUMNIST



I was astonished by the
tone of Ed Martin's column
regarding the changes to the
Social Security system: a con-
spiracy beginning in 1983, my
representing the securities
industry and my calling Social
Security a Ponzi scheme,
which it is where is he


going?
Let's talk about facts. The
fact is, if we do nothing to
change Social Security we
must either raise taxes on
workers, lower benefits or
fund the shortfall from gener-
al revenues, or a combination
of all of these. This is indis-
putable, and all of these alter-
natives represent a slippery
slope supported by the fact
that there are fewer workers
supporting ever growing
numbers of retirees.
The unfunded liability of
Social Security and Medicare
is in the tens of trillions of dol-
lars. Mr. Martin rightly points
out that Social Securities
IOUs are backed by the full
faith and credit of the U.S.
government, but for how
long? If we do not address this


shortfall and we continue to
fund it by issuing long-term
Treasury securities (printing
money), those securities will
soon become worthless..
It is bad enough to run
budget deficits when you
must, during recessions and
wartime, but to add to them
to continue the funding of an
outdated retirement system is
ludicrous.
The AARP, which purports
to represent those older than
55, certainly not me, opposes
any changes primarily be-
cause it thinks people will
make bad investment choic-
es. This hasn't stopped it from
offering a family of mutual


funds to these very same peo-
ple. The hubris is unbeliev-
able.
For continuous 25-year
periods since 1900, the aver-
age return for the stock mar-
ket, even if you began in 1929,
is a minimum of 6 percent.
This far exceeds the 1-percent
return from Social Security.
What should really con-
cern people is that members
of Congress who are not
even part of the Social Se-
curity system, since they have
their own special govern-
ment-sponsored retirement
program will be making all
of the final decisions.
Ask yourself why liberals


are holding on to the Holy
Grail of the New Deal, the
current Social Security sys-
tem, and trying to scare peo-
ple. It is simply a lack of ideas.
The privatization of our
country's retirement system
will have little,or no effect on
those currently more than 55
years old. It will ensure our
children and grandchildren
will have real ownership of
fully funded retirement ac-
counts that can be passed on
to their survivors and cannot
be touched and used for
other purposes by politicians.
What is wrong with a fully
Funded retirement system with
full ownership by its partici-


pants, who can choose from
an array of indexed securities
investments administered by
the U.S. Government?
Mr. Martin, you cannot tax
your way to saving the cur-
rent pay-as-you-go pyramid
retirement system. Get out of
your Depression-era mentali-
ty and start thinking out of
the box. After all it is people,
and their ideas, that have
made our country great, not
government or government
programs.
Finally, I represent no
group other than myself and
my family. I am a concerned

day events in our lives. She
also writes about the poor, the
disadvantaged and the needy
among us; about the direc-
tion our country is heading in
matters such as pollution
control and our obligations as
stewards and temporary cus-
todians of this planet Earth.
In voicing these concerns,
Lorraine does not stand
alone. Thinking people from
all walks of life are equally


concerned.
Nowhere in Lorraine's writ-
ings will you find any of the
negative, inflammatory
words used by the writer of
the letter to the editor. Com-
pare that writer's letter with
Lorraine Coccaro's columns
and draw your own conclu-
sions.

WHAT IS GINGIVITIS?
Gingivitis is the most common gum disease and is characterized by
inflamed gum tissue. Sometimes the inflammation appears as a thin
red or bluish-red line marginal gingivitis around the teeth.
The most common cause of gingivitis is poor oral hygiene. If teeth are
not brushed, gingivitis develops quickly as plaque deposits, which are
loaded with bacteria, form around and beneath the gum.
Early gingivitis can be cured by self-treatment by thorough daily
brushing and flossing to remove irritating food debris and soft plaque
deposits. A soft nylon brush at a 45-degree angle and jiggled in,a
gentle massaging motion directly on the gum is effective. Special
rubber tip massagers are also available. If gums are soft and puffy, the
rubber tip attached to the brush should be inserted between the teeth
to massage the gum tissue. Stimulants are also effective.
Once plaque and tartar are firmly established on the teeth and beneath
the gum, professional cleaning then becomes necessary.

People-mover tours coming to Venice


ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS


Venice residents and visi-
tors may soon be riding
Segways downtown and on
the Venetian Waterway Park
to Circus Bridge and Mana-
sota Beach.
Entrepreneur Jeff Fisher is'
meeting with Venice Area
Beautification Inc. for ap-
proval, according to execu-
tive director Faith Pridmore.
"Segway tours operate in
Sarasota, Washington, D.C.,
New Orleans and Paris, so
why not Venice?" comment-
ed Fisher.
He envisages two daily,
guided 10-person tours with
riders stopping midway to
get a bite or drink. Minimum
rider age is 12 to 13 years
and weight is 75 pounds.
After watching a short
video, riders are issued hel-
mets before they have a brief
hands-on training session.
Venice City Council issued
Segway guideline/cdefining
Segways as assistfve mobility
devices to be treated as bicy-
cles, which can be ridden on
anriy road or street witlia speed
limit of 25 mph or less. They
are permitted on sidewalks if
the operator yields to pedes-
trians and gives an audible
signal before passing. A driv-
er license is not required and
riders under 16 years must
wear helmets, according to
City Public Information Of-
fler Pam Johnson.
"I tried them at the open-
ing of Caspersen Beach and
they are a lot of fun," John-
son said.
Ken Levine of Sarasota
Chrysler, suppliers of the
popular two-wheeled people:
movers, said, "We were inun-
dated with rider requests
when demonstrating at the
recent Venice-Nokomis
Rotary Art Festival." -
Fisher, his wife, Stephanie,
and mom, Nanci, who cur-
rently own a family medical
equipment repair company
at Sarasota Business Park on
Jacaranda Boulevard, plan to
open a storefront downtown
for their new tours.
Almost $1.5 million in
new store development
Venice .Village Shoppes
LLC is investing $500,000,
according to Harvey Jan-
dreau, general manager, and
new tenant Ross Dress For
Less 'has a $900,000 invest-
ment in the project.
The new 30,000-square-
foot store employing 40 to 50
full- and part-time associates,
is to open April 30, stated
Katei Loughnot, vice presi-
dent of investing and media
relations. An average store
* generates $7 million annual-
ly, offering name brand ap-
* parel fashions at 20 to 60
percent of department and
specialty store prices.
The company had $4.2
billion in sales and added 79
to its 650 stores in 2004 and
.has plans to open another 75
stores in 2005. Florida is its


third largest market, with 75
stores.
Additional land acquired
by Tampa developer
A parcel of several acres
on the northwest comer of
Jacaranda Boulevard and East
Venice Avenue was recently
acquired by Primerica Group
Inc. of Tampa for $925,000.
The company already
owns the opposite corner,
where it is to develop the
Jacaranda Commons Shop-
ping Center. No plans have
been made for their latest
acquisition, which could be
simply a water retention
pond for purposes of the
center development accord-
ing to George Trujillo, sales
and leasing director. Pri-
merica owns and has success-
fully developed the nearby
Venice Commons Shopping
Center.
Fashions for belly dancers
Where do belly dancers go
to get their costumes? They
visit Rosemary Blevins, man-
ager of Pure Imaginations
Gallery in Nokomis at 817
South Tamiami Trail.
A few years ago attending
a convention in a northern
city, she visited a restaurant
featuring a belly dancer.
Liking what she saw, Blevins
returned home to Kansas to
locate a teacher to learn the
routines and soon became
an expert at this Egyptian
dance.
Moving to Nokomis, she
visited the Nokomis Beach
drum circle events where
local belly dancers perform
and decided to participate.
Unable to obtain supplies
locally for belly dancers, she
has obtained supplies of veils,
costumes and scarves, which
are displayed at the store.
Forty units sold. ,
within a month
"The first phase of 40 units
was entirely sold out in less
than a month and we have
such a long waiting list for
back-ups we have stopped
taking names," reported
Robert Mansell, director of
Calusa Park.
Site clearance for the de-
velopment of eight two-story
buildings, including tearing
down the former horse farm
on Laurel Road, opposite
Mission Valley Boulevard in
Nokomis, is expected to begin
in June, assuming permitting
is completed.
' Leslie's opening in March
The new tenant for the last
remaining unit on the south-
ern end of Jacaranda Plaza
on Tamiami Trail is Leslie's
Swimming Pool Supplies,
confirmed Frank Militello,
Sembler Company leasing
representative of St. Peters-
burg. The 4,000-square-foot
store is expected to open in
March.
Leslie's began in 1963
when a Californian working
out of a backyard shed start-
ed the business that today is
the largest pool supplies re-
tailer, with more than 470
retail stores.
A woman's hardware
store opens
There is a new people ,
place for socializing in Noko- ,
mis Four Bays Shopping Cen- ,
ter at 303 South Tamiami
Trail, according to Straw Hat
Gifts owner Susan Nelson.


With candles, splashes, a little
bit of country, shabby chic,
Victorian, Key West, clothing
and more, she offers craft
classes weekly.
"Its a woman's hardware
store with every tool needed
to create a new and better
you in your home," said Nel-,
son, who has a bigger, similar
store in New Hampshire.
ManorCare update
ManorCare of Venice, part
of the national HCR Manor-
Care organization, recently
made a technical administra-
tive change to its title from
ManorCare Boynton Beach
to HCR ManorCare. The
change was reported by
General Manager Elaine
Boyer, emphasizing it was
merely a paperwork amend-
ment with no structural,
corporate or operational
changes whatsoever.
Salute to history
The Terraces, to be built at
221 Nokomis Ave. on the
island by developer Jean
Trammell, will be a salute to
history.
She discovered the existing
property was originally own-
ed by the Arnold Lumber
Mill of Laurel Road in No-
komis. The mill burned
down around 1930, probably
caused by a passing steam
train. The home was picked
up and moved to its present
location,
In the 1960s the city con-
demned it, forcing the owners
to carry out extensive reno-
vations. Inspection recently
revealed a few wood attic
beams branded with the
name Arnold. Trammell is to
provide samples for the city
of Venice archives at the
Triangle Inn.
As the contractor tears
down the building, Dorothy
Korwek, Venice director of
historical resources, is hop-
ing to find historical items,
newspapers, pottery, etc.
Samples of the wood beams
and historical items found
are to be incorporated into
Trammell's new three-story
building, which will have
parking and retail on the first
floor, offices on the second
floor and six condominiums
on the top floor.,
Free, fun car show
Between 50 and 60 classic
cars will attend the second
annual Triple AAA Auto Club
South car show on Saturday,
Feb. 12, between 9 a.m. and 1
p.m. at 2800 South Tamiami
Trail in Venice. "Its a fun day
for the folks," commented
organizer and district manag-
er Alan Carter.
Targeted opening
date for Lowe's
Construction crews are
making fast work on one of
the largest stores to enter
Venice, Lowe's Home Im-
provement Center. The steel
framework shell indicates
the extent of this 119,000-
square-foot store with its -
25,000-square-foot garden
center. With more than
40,000 total products, it rep-
resents an investment of
$18.5 million. "The store is
targeted for a late summer
opening," confirmed spokes-
person Jennifer Smith.

BUSINESS MATTERS


Homes fit for a King-


The gap between housing prices and what
the average working family can afford to pay
for a home is expected to continue to grow.


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


If the trend holds true, it
may take the income of a
Stephen King a part-time
Casey Key resident to, af-
ford a home in Sarasota
County.
During a discussion on
affordable housing, Larry Ar-
nold, manager of the coun-
ty's Community Develop-
ment Department, presented
a series of charts to commis-
sioners showing the trend in
housing prices in the county.
Most compelling, Arnold
said, was the comparison of
sales values by price range
from 2000 projected to 2007.
Defining a medium-priced
home at $156,000, Arnold's
chart showed the market
for homes priced between
$88,000 and $158,000 would
decline from 36 .percent inl
2000 to just 9 percent in
2007. Likewise, the projection
showed homes priced over
$251,000 increasing from 18
percent in 2000 to 51 percent
in 2007.
"We're seeing a gap be-
tween what people can af-
ford and market prices,"
said senior planner Wendy
Thomas, who is working on'
the affordable housing issue.
"That gap will continue."
No help from the market
Thomas said a typical
family of four in Sarasota
County with an annual in-
come of $45,000 could afford
a monthly mortgage ;pay-
nerit of $1.150. According to
Thomas, the $150,000 home


they could previously afford
now costs $200,000, which is
beyond their ability to buy.
"The market is not going
to build (affordable housing)
and that's what has gotten
us into this trouble," said
commissioner Jon Thaxton.
"It wants to take the course
of least resistance and that's
these pricey homes that sell
like hot cakes."
Thomas defined low in-
come in Sarasota as an annu-
al income between $27,151
and $43,440.
Impatient and wanting
action, commissioners unan-
imously told Thomas and
Arnold they wanted to see
some action on a proposal
to award density bonuses or
some monetary incentive to
developers who build "siz-
able amounts" of affordable
housing.
By a 4-1 vote, with Thaxton
dissenting, commissioners


also eliminated the idea of
linkage fees a charge on
businesses that come into
the community and offer
low-wage jobs. The linkage
fee is then used to develop
affordable housing for the
employees.
"I want to make the point
that not all housing stock is
created equal and I want to
tackle the most difficult first,"
Tliaxton said of the density
bonuses. "I'm talking,,about
housing for the much lower
incomes first, the $110,000
price range, not $190,000."
By consensus, commis-
sioners indicated they sup-
ported steps to preserve the
affordability of rental units
in the county.
Thomas said she would
,begin to work on the density
bonus measure and meth-
ods to preserve affordability
of rental units. She, expects
to return to the board with
specific measures in April or
May.

thing about Welcome Connection," said
Shelley Whiteside, vice president of mar-

ket. If you are a florist, and you advertise

One of many Native Americans parades through the Circle of Life during ceremonies held at the Third Annual Mystic Eagle Pow Wow held at Oscar Scherer State Park in Osprey last weekend.






Pow wow sheds light on






Native American culture.


BY JAN FINDLEY
CORRESPONDENT


The Mystic Eagle Cultural
Association held its Third An-
nual Mysitic Eagle Pow Wow
at Oscar Scherer State Park-
last weekend.
If you missed it, you miss-
ed an unusual, exciting, fun,
creative and educational
event.
Too bad.
You could have learned
something. And you could
have found a whole new area
of interests, from a recre-
ational standpoint and as a
genealogical hobby. You
could have met genuine Na-
Live American Indians. And
you could have met up with a
whole bunch of people who
look like you, but who claim
to be Indian. These are people
who are also of European
descent who became "Indian"
by way of various styles of
intermarriage, an eons-old


method of blending races.
The idea of having Pow
Wows in Southwest Florida
got a big boost in 1997 and
1998 when the Venice Art
Center had summer pro-
grams that featured various
ethnic groups Indian,
Ukrainian, Scottish, German,
etc. who showed off sam-
ples of their arts, culture and
crafts.
The Native Americans
were a big hit.
Ed Wind Dancer introduc-
ed art center audiences to
genuine Indian dancing.
Those who saw him were im-
pressed and glad to see that
he is now the Head Man in
the Mystic Eagle Pow Wow.
Other favorites from VAC days
were Indian storytellers, Jin-
gle W'Voodinancey leading the
lot. Indian stories focus on
why things are as they are -
morals, manners, the cultural
myths that underlie much of
the Indian character. If you're


older than 40, your knowl-
edge of the Native Americans'
history is sketchy and proba-
bly based on things the
movies taught you mostly
figments of early Hollywood
directors' imaginations.
David Eveningthunder is
not only an artist, art publish-
er and distributor, he also is
an actor who has appeared in
numerous films as, you
guessed it, an Indian. He is
well-acquainted with current
Hollywood practices in de-
picting the Native Americans
as well as Indian history. A
couple of his recent films are
"Alligator Alley," which Ron
Howard directed. "The Miss-
ing" and "Blood Warriors" are
others. Eveningthunder claims
that early movie Indians were
not Indians there weren't
enough to go around.
The greeting (familiar to
any second grader), "How" is
not in the Indian lexicon it
just happens to be a word that

turn-of-the-20th-century It-
alians, Greeks, Jews could
pronounce without accents
or forgetting their line.
"Practically every immi-
grant race that tended toward
large noses at one time or
another played Indians," he
said. "Real Indians seldom
did."
Times have changed.
Today, according to Eve-
ningthunder, what with the
successful introduction and
operation of Indian-run gam-
bling casinos, "A lot of Indian
money is invested in financ-
ing movies.
"People who put up the
money to make movies have a
lot to say about the story and
how certain characters are
played," he said. "We are
changing a lot of misbeliefs
about us."
It was evident that the Pow
Wow is run by Native Amer-
icans.
Nobody said, "How."
The vendors, performers
and hangers-on were clearly
proud of their various tribes
and were pleased to talk
about their histories. They
showed us, up-close and per-
sonal, Native American danc-
ing and proved that Indians
did more than war dance, that
they had a whole menu of
dances for men and women.
Dances come in categories
like Fancy, Traditional, Flag,
Veteran, Straight, Shawl, Jin-
gle and so on. The dances are
danced inside a delineated
circle, established as a central
point ofl 'iiesi 'at any pow
.wow. The circle is bessed and
considered holy so long as the
pow wow goes on. Dancers
and others anointed are the
only ones allowed in.
This year, 4 huge circle was
bordered in bales of hay. By
tradition, the dancers spread
blankets on the hay bales to
reserve seating for themselves

Regional Neighborhood

Summit coming soon


ELLEN HILLSTROM
COLUMNIST

It is very apparent that
neighborhood associations
are becoming an integral part
of the city of Venice and Sara-
sota County governments'
planning and development
process. They are valuing citi-
zen input more strongly than
in years past. That is good.
I. quote from John L. Mc-
Knight, author of "Building
Communities From The In-
side Out": "Governments,
agencies, and institutions are
servants of the (citizen) asso-
ciations, not the other way
around. However, if the asso-
ciations do not act, they then
will dictate their set of laws
upon the associations."
The South Venice Civic
Association is a residential cit-
izens association. If we are to
make informed contributions
to current issues, then we

must take the initiative to
learn our responsibilities to
the planning and develop-
ment process. The Regional
Neighborhood Summit, a
combined initiative of Man-
atee and Sarasota counties, is
one of the learning opportu-
nities and it is coming soon.
The Regional Neighbor-
hood Summit is a one-day
session to be held on Sat-
urday, Feb. 26, from 9 a.m. to
2:30 p.m. at Sudakoff Center,
Sarasota-Manatee Campus of
the University of South
Florida, 5700 North Tamiami
Trail, Sarasota. Attendance is
limited. Registration can be
made via the Internet at
npo.sarasotagov.com.
The workshops include:
Neighborhood Watch and
Other Safety Initiatives; The
ABCs of Planning and Zoning;
Community Change, Rede-
velopment and Infill; Crime
Prevention Through Environ-
mental Design; Changing
Neighbors, Changing Neigh-
borhood Landscapes; and
others.
Because of its success at
the State Neighborhood Con-
ference, I will again present
how the SVCA created and
organized its community
code compliance program.
I remember very well the
citizens versus government
free for alls at planning and
zoning meetings. Those days
need to be replaced with
informed debates and part-
nerships of understanding to
benefit our respective com-
munities as a whole. Attend
the summit meeting and
learn.

Diocese of Venice: "We
have not given the city
permission."

BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER
On Jan. 26, Jim Bursick,
North Port director of public
works and assistant city man-
ager, told city commissioners
that he. had already filed for
an exemption with the Flor-
ida Department of Environ-
mental Protection to open the
Chamberlain Boulevard
drop-off center.
Bursick said he asked the
DEP to expedite the applica-
tion, meaning the site may
open within 60 days. The
commissioners also were
eager to get this site open as
quickly as possible.
Opening the site, however,
may be the least of theirwor-
ries.
North Port may have en-
croached on land that does
not belong to the city.
The lot is a 27-acre site
belonging to-the Diocese of
Venice; which purchased the
land in September 1989.
The Sarasota County Geo-
graphic Information Services
Web site shows all property
boundaries including the lot
owned by North Port's road
and drainage department,
which sits next to the proper-
ty owned by the church.
Raymond Haddad, direc-
tor of the building commis-
sion for the Diocese of Venice,
verified ownership of the
property.
"We still own the land,
which is the future home of a,
parish we plan to build in

erty line exists. In addition,
during a recent meeting with
the neighbors of Chamber-
lain Boulevard, he was asked

on Diocese of Venice's land


North Port," Haddad said. He
produced a real estate prop-
erty profile of the property
they call "SA-35" that
describes the vacant land as
the future parish site.
When asked about the pos-
sibility of the city using their
land as a dump, he said, "We
have not given the city per-
mission, nor do we have any
lease agreements with them."
The Diocese of Venice is
planning to visit their proper-
ty in the next few days to see if
there are any encroachments.
Bursick, who has been the
director of public works for
the last eight months, said he

BENNETT GROSS
RELIGION COLUMNIST

February is a rarity in the
Jewish calendar; it's one of
the few months when there
isn't a holiday.
Everywhere that is but in
Venice where a day was creat-
ed 11 years ago to celebrate
the joys of Jewish cooking.
I am referring to the Jew-
ish Food Festival that will be
held this year Sunday, Feb.
20, at the Jewish Community
Center of Venice, 600 North
Auburn Road, from 10:30 a.m.
to 4 p.m.


For many of those who
bring their hearty appetites
to the event, it is an oppor-
tunity to get a thick, juicy
corned beef sandwich on
Jewish rye with a pickle and
cole slaw. Or an equally
delicious pastrami sand-
wich. Both of which have
become standards in the
repertoire of traditional Jew-
ish foods.
But there are many oth-
ers who have adventure-
some appetites and will de-
cide to try a knish pastry
dough filled with seasoned
potatoes or a blintz, a thin
pancake filled with creamy
cheese and served with apple
sauce.
Then there's 'Aunt Sadie's"
chicken soup made with, I'm
told, more than 275 chickens
plus untold numbers of other
ingredients stirred up in the
Jewish Community Center
kitchen by a dedicated group

Not only does it taste great
served as it is with a luscious
matzo ball that melts in your
mouth, but it can help cure
the common cold some-
thing that medical scientists
are telling us now but Jewish
mothers knew for centuries.
In fact as I write a friend
called to tell me that she went
to her doctor because of a lin-
gering cold and cough. And
besides prescribing an antibi-
otic, he told her to go home
and make a pot of chicken
soup.
Each year brings a growing
number of people to the JCCV
Food Festival;, last year there
were more than 1,500. And as
I see the numbers increase I
see an opportunity for other
faiths to view the JCCV facili-
ties and become familiar with
its members as well as the
foods they have made.
In the melting pot that is


America the choices of differ-
ent foods traditional to other
nationalities are as varied as
our country's population:
Chinese, Japanese, Russian,
Polish, Scandinavian, Ger-
man, Greek, French and
English, to name just a few.
We are drawn to the differ-
ent foods for their uniqueness
in taste and flavor, to get away
from the standard fare of our
'daily menus. But as we broad-
en our appetites, it seems
only a step removed to broad-
en our thinking in other
aspects of our daily life; to be
more accepting of those who
are different whether in their
beliefs or life style..
Not everyone likes a
corned beef sandwich. That's
why at the Jewish Food
Festival you have a choice of a
pastrami on rye or a bagel
with cream cheese and lox.
The stuffed cabbage is out of
this world, too.


Isn't diversity wonderful? It
can also be satisfying to the
soul. Just taste our ladies'
rugelach and mandelbread.
Better hurry because, like all
home-baked goods, they sell
out fast.
Shalom.

Antique thimbles are diverse and highly collectible


BY ANITA GOLD
GUEST COLUMNIST


Q. My great aunt left me her
collection of antique thimbles.
How can I find out more about
them and their history and
value? Andrea Mason San
Bemardino, Calif.
A. Thimbles were made in
practically every country in
the world, and in almost as
many materials, ranging
from bone and stone to glass
and brass.
Thimbles came in differ-
ent types too. Some are
called "ring thimbles;" they
resemble thick bands or
rings open at each end. They
originated in China and
Japan and were used for
pushing the needle with the
side of the finger.
Others called "finger pro-
tectors" had part of the top
cut away and somewhat
resembled a finger and nail.
Still others were made with
an attached needle threader,
thread cutter, tape measure,
or a magnet to pick up pins.
Some were plain, while oth-
ers were embellished with
semi-precious stones, deli-
cate filigree work, rich
engravings, dainty hand-
painted pictures and designs
or exquisite enamel work.
Then too, there were
"secret thimbles" said to date
back to the time of the
Borgias. Such examples look
like ordinary thimbles but
have a secret glass compart-
ment hidden under a false
top, which was used to con-
ceal a drop of poison. Other
secret thimbles were made to
hold and hide a picture of a
loved one or lover, and are
rare and costly, and can com-
mand as much as a four-fig-
ure sum. Many years ago,
one sold for $2,300.
There are other costly
thimbles too. One made of
ivory, has the 10
Commandments inside, -
which can be seen by hold-
ing the thimble up to the
light and looking though a
built-in magnifier. Then
there were blown glass thim-
bles as well as china and


porcelain antique ones, like a
rare Meissen example that
sold for a four-figure sum.
And there are beautiful gold
and silver thimbles some
beautifully engraved for the
collector to seek.
One collector has an inter-
esting thimble that comes
from Germany that's dated
1914, and has an iron cross
with an inscription in
German that says "Gott Mit
UNS" meaning GodWith Us.
Made of an inexpensive but
sturdy metal, the thimble has
a fascinating story. In 1914,
the Kaiser needed every nick-
el he could get to finance the
war, so all the housewives
were asked to turn in their
gold or silver thimbles to
finance the war as patriotic
gesture, and in return they
got one that said "Gott Mit
Uns."
Then, too, many thimbles
were made to advertise prod-
ucts, promote political cam-
paigns, and to introduce var-
ious gadgets and patented
inventions. And some thim-
bles were "different." One
type called a "thatcher's
thimble" was made of tin,
and was rather long, coming
to a point at the top. These
protected a thatcher's finger-
tips from thistles.
Another type was a large
heavy example made of iron
that had a specific purpose
and was referred to as
"Thimble Pie." Back in the
good old days when children
attended one-room school
houses, they were sometimes
given "thimble pie," if they
were naughty or didn't pay
attention.
The school master wore
such an iron thimble on his
finger, and tapped the head
of a disobedient pupil to
make him behave and
indeed he did.

Some years back you men-

meaningful words that you said
hangs in your kitchen, and that

Talk about charm, a most
charming and unforgettable
old stove-related column
written by the equally
charming columnist Jack
Mabley (titled Nowadays
Clashes With Her Old Ways)
which ran in the Chicago
Tribune on Sept. 8, in 1980,
tells about MaryWalley and
her old wood-burning stove
that Mabley wrote saying "An
Environmental officer
knocked on the door of Mary
Walley's Park Ridge, IL home
and told Mrs. Walley it was
OK for her to burn wood and
paper in her wood stove, but
she had to stop burning .
other materials, which creat-
ed an odor and a health haz-
ard. Mrs. Walley (who was 83
at the time) said she would
continue to bum whatever
she pleases in her beloved
stove.
'All day, anything I don't
like wrappers, junk mail
I put in the stove," she
said. "In the morning I light a
match to it. It bums so dry
that when I throw potato or
banana peels in it, there's
nothing left.
"I've been doing it here for
58 years and all of a sudden
this bird comes over and says
I'm causing a health problem
and an odor. I've used this
stove before these officials
were born, and I'm going to
keep using it."
Mrs. Walley has loved:
wood stoves all her life. When
she and her late husband
and two children moved to
Park Ridge, they found a
house with a chimney in the
kitchen. So they bought a
wood and coal-burning
kitchen stove. NMrs. Wallet
said her earliest recollection
from childhood was the
comfort and pleasure
derived from the warmth of
the black wood-burning


stove in her mother's kitchen.
"While the dinner was
cooking on the top," she said,
"the meat roasting or the
bread baking in the oven, the
water for the dishes was
heating in the reservoir, and
the tea kettle was humming
away.
"On blistering hot days its
warmth dried the humidity
in the air and made life more
comfortable. Returning from
school on bitter cold days,
we hung up our clothes, took
off our shoes and boots, and
gathered around the stove
with the oven door open. The
family cat made herself com-
fortable behind the stove
among our boots, shoes, and
socks that were drying.
"In 58 years," Mrs. Walley
said, "this stove has con-
sumed tons of refuse, and
saved me miles of steps to
the garbage cans in the alley.
The ashes have served as fer-
tilizer in the garden. Shall I
now, after all these years, be
denied the use of this stove
because someone does not
enjoy the smoke from its
chimney?"
"Park Ridge has not been
too sticky about it, and I
think Mrs. Walley will contin-
ue to enjoy her stove, if she
doesn't thrown any old tires
in it" said Mabley.,
To receive the entire col-
umn in its original form

Finding the proper feline facilities

GUEST WRITER

Ever notice what's notice-
ably absent on the pages of
your favorite shelter maga-
zine? Just where, in those
beautifully appointed homes,
are the kitty litter boxes?
And just what are those of


us who don't grace the pages
of glossy magazines sup-
posed to do with these neces-
sary but ugly and occasional-
ly unpleasant fixtures?
About 73 'million cats
deign to live in homes in the
United States. Where there
are cats, there must be litter
boxes. But just how to recon-


cile an unsightly litter box
with Arts and Crafts, modern
or any sort of decor is one of
the great mysteries of the uni-
verse.
It so bugged cartoonist
Scott Adams that he has
included a litter box room in

Haddad said he was con-
cerned the city is operating a
dump and drop-off site near
their land.
"When we are ready to
build there, we will now have
to face the possibility of cont-
aminated soil," Haddad said.
Commission chair Dick
Lockhart said the back part of
the property, what he refers to
as the "L," has always looked


like a landfill.
Lockhart said it was a
temporary one as they have
bulldozed the area in the last
year.
When asked if he knew
whether or not the city had
encroached on property not
belonging to, the city, Lock-
hart replied, "Nothing sur-
prises me when it comes to
road and drainage (depart-


ment). Things like that have
been going on, for a long
time."
Commissioner Barbara
Gross said, "If we did en-
croach, we need to look at the
boundaries."

teepee to view animal skins and other artifacts.


POW WOW from page 1
and their families. Unrelated
spectators are provided a
bleachers-type arrangement
well outside of the ceremoni-
al circle. The circle was and is
a kind of universal icon in
Indian tradition. This comes
from the fact that the circle is
everywhere in nature, and
nature forms the basis of their
religious approach. It starts
with man's first attempts to
see the world and the uni-
verse around him. He looks at
the world through eyes that
are round. The Earth and the
planets in the solar system are
round. The sun rises and sets
in a circular fashion. The sea-
sons form a circle. Birds build
their nests in circles. Animals.
mark their territories in cir-
cles. Indians lived in circular
homes called "tipis" and
arranged their tipis in circles.
Conntiiinin with the now-


erful influence of the icon,
Indians held their council
meetings in circles. And so
on, and on.
Since the late 1990s, pow
wows have been held in
North Port and at Oscar
Scherer State Park where
more than 10,000 people
turned out to see the various
shows, displays and mer-
chandise.
The Mystic Eagle Associ-
ation has taken on the re-
sponsibility of the annual
pow wow. Julie Norris is the
head of the organization and
in charge of setting up and
promoting the Pow Wow.
If you'd like to know more
about the Mystic Eagle Cul-
tural Association, about be-
coming a member or about
becoming a vendor at next
year's pow wow, call Norris at
(941) 485-9072. Or drop a line
to: P.O. Box 268, Nokomis

the virtual house he created

Award-winning contractor
Kacey Fitzpatrick included a
"cat zoo" room with special
venting for the litter box when
she remodeled her Los Altos,
Calif., home.
San Jose, Calif., veterinari-
an Dr. Jill Hoffman had a
woodworker construct a cus-
tom cabinet to house her lit-

Sun Classifieds work


ter boxes, complete with
built-in storage and a place
for food and water on top, not
to mention the step that
enables her "fat cats" to get to
their meals. "My custom-built
cabinet is pretty neat," she
said.
Litter boxes annoy the rest
of us enough that there is a
thriving business in litter-box
decor. Former San Franciscan
Barbara Cartun, whose feline
furniture company is based in
Bisbee, Ariz., has sold about
6,000 of her custom cabinets


in the last five years. One of
her top-of-the-line cabinets
costs $650, complete with
stained-glass window. James
Harris has two shops working
in the Los Angeles area, turn-
ing out as many as 80 wooden
litter box cabinets a month.
In yet another measure of
desperation for those of us
with cats, one company is
offering a litter box cover
masquerading as a planter.
Home decor, itturns out, is
capable of thinking outside
the box.


ACCOMMODATIONS
Before you get too carried away in planning new, stylish accommodations for your cat's litter box,
keep in mind that cats can be persnickety about their, urn, facilities.
"Cats can be very finicky regarding litter boxes," said Dr. Jill Hoffman, a veterinarian with Camden Pet
Hospital in San Jose, Calif.
The presence of a lid, location, litter type and cleaning can be factors, Hoffman said. In general, she
recommended considering these factors:
Easy access: Cats, particularly kittens and older cats, need to be able to get in and out of the box with
ease.
Coverage: Some cats like privacy, while others prefer fresh air.
Litter type: Hoffman prefers clumping cat litter. She recommends Everfresh litter with activated char-
coal. "Remember that a cat's sense of smell is probably a thousand times ours. I don't think most cats
like perfumed litters or dusty litters."
Frequent cleaning: Once daily is a minimum.

Lookout world, here they come


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Sometime this year, Venice
residents Henry and Jare
Whitmore will pull away from
their Bradenton dock to sail
around the world.
Final plans, including the
sale of their Venice house, fea-
tured here, are being made
now, but other aspects of the
intense preparation needed
for.such a once-in-a-lifetime
trip occurred in this house.
The house is in an idyllic
Walden Pond-like location in
Venice Acres. In this case, the
pond is a pool with spa but
from that pool the lush pre--
serve land view is soothing


and serene. The three-bed-
room home is far back from
the road, behind several mas-
sive live oak trees and a
spreading lawn. While the
house is ideal for entertaining
crowds of people, its secluded
location offers the solitude
the Whitmores will experi-
ence when they are on the
high seas for weeks at a time.
Like their boat, the house
is self-sufficient. With its gas
appliances and built-in gas
generator with an auto trans-
fer switch, the house also i
self-sufficent. Power outages
are not a problem as long as
they gas up in advance. To
keep refueling to a minim Um,
a 1,000-gallon propane tank is


buried in the yard. Large gas
tanks on the trawler will sup-
ply fuel for lengthy runs on
the open ocean.
While the house has zone
air-conditioning, plasma TV
with other technology fea-
tures, the Whitmores have
been learning even more in
preparation for the trip.
Henry, a retired American
Airlines pilot familiar with
navigational equipment has
been studying manuals for
comparable equipment on
the boat. They also are study-
ing prevailing winds around
the world, planning the boat's
provisioning and places
where they can restock basic
supplies and food. The lists
