Centennial birthday celebrated


Venice resident Gladys Scott marked her 100th
birthday Feb. 5 at Harbor Chase Skilled Nursing
Facility.


Arty party
'Snowbirds flock to this
-event annually.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Venice resident Gladys
Scott celebrated her 100th
birthday among 40 friends
and family members gathered
to pay tribute to her longevity,
at Harbor Chase Skilled
Nursing Facility on Feb. 5.
No fewer than four great-
grandchildren were in atten-
dance, including the newest
arrival, Jack Walters, born lan.
23.
Scott. whose birthday was
actually Feb. 2, seemed to
revel in the attention, with
friends and relatives getting in
on the picture-taking, soaking
in the fun as she watched her


great-grandchildren roam the
great room at Harbor Chase.
"I didn't have any inkling I
would live to be 100 years old,
but it has been a good run,"
she said.
With a wink and a smile,
Scott attributed her longevity
to clean living.
What does she plan to do
the next 100 years? "Sleep,"
she said.
Family connections
Thomas and Gladys Scontt
raised their two children, Tom
Scott and Glenda Singiser, in
Enola, Pa., a major freight cen-
ter for the Pennsylvania Rail-
road.
Gladys was a young woman


in her 20s during the Great
Depression, but doesn't think
it's any easier making it in the
world today.
She was a housewife before
moving on to work 20 years as
a proofreader for the
Pennsylvania legislative refer-
ence bureau, then moving to
Chicago, where she lived for
16 years. Her husband
worked as a bus driver for the
Harrisburg Railway, a local
bus service. She moved to
Venice in 1998 to be near fanm-
ily.
Her son, Tom, lived in
Sarasota for 18 years before
moving to Venice six years
ago. Granddaughter Michelle
Walters and her family also
live in Venice.

A city workshop proposed ordinances to limit mooring to no more than three days and
outlaw people living on their boat within city limits unless it's docked at a marina that
allows live-aboards.


Cleaning out Venice's harbor


A city workshop
focuses on how to
keep boat owners
from getting a "free
ride" by leaving their
vessels within city
limits.

Marine Patrol Officer
Phil Phillips can stop boat-
ers who have been drink-
ing. Reckless drivers and
speeding also can be dealt


with, thanks to state ordi-
nances.
There is little the veteran
Venice police officer can do
about those who unsafely
park their vessels in the
city's small harbor.
-. Phillips just sits back
and waits for something
bad to happen. There were
13 of these boats in the
harbor Sunday, and only
five or six were seaworthy,
according to Phillips.
"They come out here to
our waters, drop a line and
engine block (as an
anchor) and get free boat
storage. ... They just don't
seem to ever go away,"

Sarasota County residents
who want term limits for their
county commissioners will
have to resort to a statewide
effort to amend the Florida
Constitution.
By a unan-
imous vote
Tuesday com-
missioners
decided they
would not
appeal the de-
cision made
by 12th Cir-
cuit Judge De- Staub
no Econo-
mou three weeks ago finding
unconstitutional a provision
in the county charter that lim-
ited commissioners to two
terms in office.
Commissioners made the
decision after hearing that
their chances of prevailing on
appeal were slim and it would
cost them $10,000 to $15,000
to pursue an appeal.
"You face a huge problem
and that's the Cook case," said
David Persson, the Sarasota
attorney hired by the county
to defend the charter provi-
sion. "The (Florida) Supreme
Court used incredibly broad
language in deciding that
term limits are a restriction. It
would be a vehicle to give the
Supreme Court a way to limit
Cook if they wanted too, but
your chances are slim."
In the Cook case, the
Supreme Court ruled that a
term limit imposed on consti-
tutional officers mandated in
the state constitution -
county commrunissioners, sher-
iffs and property appraisers,
for example through a
county charter was an uncon-
stitutional imposition of an
additional disqualification for
office.
The applicability of the rul-
ing to county commissioners
came into question because
commissioners did not par-
ticipate in the Cook case or a
companion case arising out


of Pinellas County. In its
broad riding, the justices
appeared to infltde commis-
sioners in the officers protect-
ed from term limits.
Final decision
After hearing arguments
Jan. 19 in a
.challenge to
the county's
term limit
measure, Eco-
nomou said
he had read
the case sev-
eral times and
noted that the
Patterson Supreme
Court was
consistent in the way it ap-
proached the county com-
missioners
and other
constitutional
officers and.
the question'
of term limits.
"The (state)
constitution

Mercier for its amend-
m e n t "
Economou said, "and it is not
by county charter."
"If you don't appeal, it's a
final decision for Sarasota,
Manatee and DeSoto coun-
ties." said Persson. "If they're
illegal, thdiey're illegal and you
can't enforce them."
"With our attorney saying
are chances are slim, I'm not
sure Sarasota County needs
to be the leader on this," said
commissioner Shannon
Staub.
Observing that three of the
five county commissioners -
Staub, Nora Patterson and
David Mills had defeated
incumbents to gain their
seats, commission chair Paul
Mercier said, "People can still
choose who they wantito rep-
resent them and show their
displeasure with those in
office."

Art show is for the birds snowbirds, that is


Like the art show she founded almost a quarter
century ago, Anita Sandier is one of a kind.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


An estimated 20,000 peo-
ple are expected to crowd
Venice's historic downtown
area Feb. 11 and 12 for the
24th annual Snowbird Art
Festival. It's one of thp oldest
and most popular festivals in
the area, with more than 140
exhibitors, a slew of food ven-
dors and live music.
Tampa Avenue from Noko-
mis Avenue to Nassau Street
will be closed to traffic during
the weekend.
The festival encompasses
Centennial Park with its Ga-
zebo area and Venice Centre
Mall, former home of the
historic Kentucky Military
Institute.
Original art festival
The annual Snowbird Art
Festival is the brainchild of
longtime Venice resident
Anita Sandier.
For Sandier, learning how
to coordinate an arts festival
has been trial-and-error. The
first festival drew 40 exhi-
bitors, she said, but it almost
didn't take place.
The show opened the day
of the famous No-Name
Storm in 1981, which brought
hurricane force winds that
died down and turned into
sunshine for the rest of the
festival, Sandier recalled.
"When I first started this
festival I asked the local mer-
chants if they would like an
arts festival. It was a way to
promote their merchandise
and the arts. I didn't ask the
municipality if we could put it
on. I just did it. Fifteen years
later they threatened to shut
us down unless we obtained
a permit, so we complied."
Today, Sandier enlists the


help of a few people to help
her meet municipal require-
ments, coordinate security,
fill out permits, solicit ex-
hibitors, secure entertain-
ment, clean-up crews, pro-
motion and a host of other
duties.
Queen of turquoise
For years Sandier was not
only the coordinator, but one
of the exhibitors. Turquoise
jewelry in a Native American
setting was her specialty. She
still wears the art she makes.
"I just love turquoise," said
Sandier. "It's earthly and has
a mystique."
Her love of the semiprec-
ious stone, however, came
out of a dark period in her
life.
"Turquoise saved my life,"
Sandier said. "When I came
to Venice in 19641 had no idea
of how my life was about to
change."
Sandier tells the story of
being in a terrible automobile
crash six months after arriv-
ing in Venice. The accident
killed her mother and left her
severely injured with a long
recovery. .A year later, tur-
quoise was the first stimula-
tion she remembered.
"I wasn't into crystals or
healing at the time," Sandier
said. "I was just drawn to
turquoise. It brought me back
into this world."
She asked a local jeweler
to allow her to work for free
just to be around turquoise.
The jeweler gave her a small
inventory to sell. Sandler-
started to sell her own
turquoise jewelry in the court-
yard of her ranch on Albee
Farm Road. In years to come
she would sell Indian-style
jewelry at local art shows.
"That's how I rode along

to this day," Sandier said.
Circus connection
Those w'hole been around
the area since the 1980s will
remember a donkey that was
a hallmark of the art festival
for years. "Jack the Judge" was
an 18-year-old stubborn, but
lovable, animal with a nose
for curiosity that brought
smiles to the face of all the
children, she recalls.
Her love of animals is an-
other facet of her storied
-past, when Anita and her
husband, MuLurN. used to al-
low circus acts from. the orig-
inal Ringling Bros. and
Barn um & Bailey Circus in


Venice to park their trailers
on the Sandier Ranch.
Tarzan .Zerbini and his
tigers, Reno Christiani and
his elephants, and George
Hanneford's world-famous
Clydesdales all brought their
acts directly from the railroad
depot tor the Sandier Ranch
for winter rests and summer
shows.
'Animals were every-
where," said Sandier. "It start-
ed to look like a circus around
here..We had lions and tigers
in cages and elephants roam-
ing free on the ranch."
It wasn't what the Sandlers
had in mind when they
bought the property but it sure


was fun, she said, re-
calling how she came into
ownership of the family ranch.
"I was so mad at my hus-
band. Here was this land that
was in terrible shape with
lots of junk on it. Albee was a
dirt road. It was a dump and I
was going to divorce him for
buying .the land. Now, of
course, I thank him every day."
Memones
Today Sandier has 20 head
of cattle on a spread of 35
acres. She employs a small
entourage to run the ranch,
which includes a nearby
storage area.,

Developers oppose affordable housing quota


The board of county commissioners passes
p^ip plan amendment with an element one
.Inissioner said no one will use.


IREN RICHARDSON
rA COUNTY EDITOR
i addition of an afford-
housing element has
Englewood developer
)king his plans.
s disappointing to see
affordable housing is
Vg in this," said Ron
!on, who plans to devel-
mixed-use commercial
r along State Road 776
artists Avenue. "Each of
commercial centers


should be evaluated on its
own because what might suit
one will not suit another."
Johnson made his com-
ments shortly after Sara-
sota County commissioners
voted 3-2 to include the
affordable housing element
in a .comprehensive plan
amendment that would
allow mixed-use develop-
ment project to become eli-
gible for increased residen-
tial densities.
Already eligible for a dens-


ity of 13 units per acre, the
new policy would allow devel-
opers up. to 25 units per acre
if the project met one of
three conditions: it was in a
village or town center as
shown on the future land use
map; was located in an
Economic Development Re-
source area in the Sarasota
2050 plan; or was located in
a town and village center and
a plan had already been ap-
proved.
Commissioners had ap-
proved the amendment last
October with a provision that
called for the creation of
alternative housing types and
an unspecified percentage of
units that qualified as afford-


able housing.
After the Florida Depart-
ment of Community Affairs
reviewed the amendment,
DCA staff recommended
that if an affordable housing
policy were included, more
specificity was needed. In re-
sponse to that. criticism,
county staff proposed a
change requiring a maxi-
mum amount of 7 percent
for affordable housing
units.
Two private 'developers
who had joined in'the amend-
ment told commissioners
that they continued to object
to the inclusion of any afford-
able housing in the amend-
ment.


"We opposed the inclusion
of affordable housing lan-
guage last October," said
Johnson's attorney, Steve Rees.
"As one of the three stake-
holders involved in this proc-
ess, we'll withdraw our partic-
ipation' and ask for denial of
this amendment."
'Not worth it'
In response to Rees and
Sarasota attorney Jim Turn-
er's criticism of the afford-
able housing language, com-
missioners asked staff to
develop a policy that sets a
maximum of 15 percent of
,affordable housing units in
the additional units over the
13 units per acre Johnson


and other developers were
already entitled under coun-
ty ordinances.
"No one is going to use
this. It's not even worth it,"
said commissioner Shannon
Staub, who questioned why
affordable housing had even
been included in the first
place.
Senior county planner
Vivian Roe said that with the
emerging countywide discus-
sion over the need for more
affordable housing, staff saw
this as an opportunity to gain
units in the new devel9p-
ments.
Staub and commission
chair Paul Mercier cast the
dissenting votes.

had directed county staff to
make adjustments to give
additional points to side-
walks near places of work
and those that aided access
to public transit. The re-
evaluation resulted in minor
changes to the list of prior-
ities, but still resulted in no
projects south of Bee Ridge
Road in Sarasota cracking the
list of the top nine projects.
One South County project
- 7.14 miles of sidewalks
around Englewood Elemen-
tary School made it onto
the list as the 10th project, but
only for design work in 2007.
For it, but frustrated
A month ago, Staub said


she couldn't support what
was called a regional program
when no sidewalks would be
constructed in South County,
which is her region. To soften
her criticism, Staub asked
staff and county administra-
tion to be alert to alterna-
tives, such as the creation of
a public improvement district,
that might get sidewalks con-
structed in South County
sooner.
Although he voted in favor
of the list, commissioner Jon
Thaxton also expressed frus-
tration with 'the final priority
list.
"There's not enough side-
walks everywhere to get peo-
ple to jobs, shopping or even
avoid hazards," Thaxton said.

U.S. 41 Business gets its own architectural them


Council directs staff to draft ordinances
designating specific appearance and design
standards along the southern part of island.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR


Venice attorney E.G. "Dan"
Boone was out to make an
impression 30 years ago when
he built the 11,800-square-
foot, Colonial-style building
that houses his law firm.
The longtime attorney was
out to make an impression
again Tuesday afternoon, ask-
ing Venice City Council to
exempt his brick building
from being incorporated into
the newest Northern Italian
Renaissance-style district for
design standards.
."In the 1970s, it was
an architectural statement
(about the boring buildings),"
Boone told council. "I wanted
to give back to a community
that had given so much to
me. ... Maybe I was trying to
shame others into building
better buildings, but look
how far we've come."
His request, however, was
denied. Council directed staff
to draw up the necessary ordi-
nances to create a new archi-


CRACKS from page 3A
area (just north of Osprey)
going shopping. We're not
getting the job done."
The priority list resulted
from a discussion by commis-
sioners last July as they set
new criteria to try to gain
better efficiencies from the
program.
Molly Williams, the pro-
gram coordinator, told com-
missioners that previously,
the request-driven program


tectural district that com-
bines elements of-two exist-
ing standards, the Venetian
Theme and Venetian Gateway
districts.
The district will run along
U.S. 41 Business south of
Milan Avenue to the Circus
Bridge, basically including
any parcel visible from the
four-lane road.
Council members were
listening to Boone, and ex-
pressed many of the same
concerns. Rick Tacy seemed
to explain himself the best,
saying there needs to be
some type of exception for
buildings like the Boone law
firm's Colonial design and
the Western architectural
style of Gold Rush BBQ
restaurant.
In essence, certain build-
ings could apply for a waiver
if renovations will repeat the
existing architectural style -
remain Colonial or Western.
All single-family homes
would be exempt, but all
other new structures or ones
remodeled at 50 percent or


often resulted in a constantly
changing priority list, leading
to an inefficient program. By
constructing segments of
sidewalks at the same time
in a regional fashion, the
county hopes to lower the
cost while building more
sidewalks faster.

COUNCIL NEWS
Also at Tuesday's meeting city council:
Passed on first reading an ordinance to revamp the Airport
Advisory Board's structure so its specific purpose is to advise coun-
cil on the operation and maintenance of Venice Municipal Airport.
The new board will have seven members appointed by the mayor,

background. Final approval will be at the next council meeting.
Passed a resolution in support of a state law to allow cameras
that will record vehicles running stop lights.
Approved a $25,000 contract with Garden State Fireworks for
the Fourth of July show, with $12,500 paid as a deposit. Venice
will pay $2 500 of the remaining balance, and Sertoma Club of
Venice will contribute $10,000.
Approved the transfer of the remaining 5 131,815 of utility
department money from last year's budget and applied it to 2004-
05 improvement projects. Total of this fund is nearly S 182,000.
Approved piggybacking onto a Sarasota County bid to repair
stormwater pipes at the intersection of Avenue des Parques and
West Venice Avenue for $27,010.
Issued proclamation declaring "Poppy Days' on Feb. 10-11 as

city's showmobile at the Relay for Life on April 22-23 at Laurel
Nokomis School, and waived the fees for its use.


more of its value would have
to comply.
Much of council's debate
centered on exceptions and
which buildings would quali-
fy, without a clear consensus
ever being reached. Council
member John Simmonds was
the most vocal against any
ordinance, saying more dis-
cussion was needed.
But Simmonds was in the
minority, as council member
Bill Willson pointed out that
the December workshop and
Tuesday's discussion was
enough for staff to draw up
something to vote on. '
"If we sit around and talk
about this forever, we're never
going to get, anything done
and it'll be too late," said
Willson, referring to expected


redevelopment along U.S. 41
Business.
No timeline was offered
for when the official staff pro-
posal will be up for a vote.
Beach bids
City council approved City
Manager Marty Black shifting
$2.9 million into federal bank
accounts so the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers can award
Venice's beach renourish-
ment contract. The local
share of money was needed
for the bid to be awarded Feb.
21 at an estimated cost of
$17.2 million.
Once the contract is
awarded, restocking Venice
Beach with sand should be
finished by Aug. 9. Black
expects there to be an addi-

Most of the money, about
$14.2 million, is from the fed-
eral government, and it's a
good thing Venice was award-
ed the funding last year.
President Bush's latest bud-
get eliminates beach renour-
ishment; he tried to remove
money last year.
Four hurricanes and an
election year helped convince
the president otherwise. The
Lido Beach renourishment
project, for example, has lost,
all of its money, Black said.
"We're lucky to have got-
ten our funding last year....
Our money is in the bank,"
Black said.
In other news
Other news of note from
Tuesday's city council meet-
ing:
Public comments and
respect Council member
Vicki Taylor pointed out that
citizens only have five min-
utes during comments, and
council should treat them
with respect, not interrupt
and not engage in debate
with them. The ensuing con-
versation by members avoid-
ed uttering the words "Venice
Taxpayers League" and cen-
tered on how members are
actually answering public
questions.


"For some on council, cer-
tain members of the iTL
seem to get more remarks
than other citizens," Tilor
admitted after the meeting.
"That shouldn't have any-
thing to do with it. It shouldn't
happen." I. .-".,.yg
Mobi-mats held,up,-
Sarasota County purchased
the mobility mats for Venice
Beach for people: umng
wheelchairs. A lack of tate
permits is keeping tem
rolled up and in storige,
according to council melper
Fred Hammett.
The state will not allovhe
mats to be placed on the jnd
because it could inte' ,re
with turtle nesting. Venuce
and the county are negqiat-
ing around those rules, b j)it's

Hammett said.

ficials said. The district al-
ready has an executive direc-
tor of elementary schools and
one for secondary schools
that encompasses middle
and high
4chools..
The board
officially
adopted a job
description
outlining
duties of the
newly created
position at
Dorsett the same
meeting.
"Dr. Hal Nelson is being
recommended to fill a much-
needed position in the dis-
trict office," said Norris, who
made the appointment with-
out advertising the position.
Supporting diversity
Board vice chairwoman
Carol Todd welcomed the dis-
trict's most recent hires.
"The district supports ex-
cellence and diversity in our
school system, and we are
pleased that you both proved
to be the best candidate for

standing school district,"
Todd said.


District officials said they
were intentionally looking for
minorities to help fill the ad-
ministrative positions.'
Focus on middle schools
Nelson has 20 years' expe-
rience as an educator, includ-
ing serving as principal at
Phillippi Shores Elementary.
He will also teach in his new
position.
Nelson's job will be to pro-
vide leadership, coordination
and support for middle
school programs and activi-
ties for students throughout
the district.
He began his career in
education in 1985 as a music
teacher in Hillsborough
County. In 1993, he became a
generalist for curriculum and
instruction at the district
level. In 1995, he was ap-
pointed as an elementary
school assistant principal. He
moved to a magnet school for
the arts in 1996 where he
served as assistant principal
for two years and principal for
the past seven years.
Nelson has been effective
in leading a school with avery
diverse population to be-
come highly successful acad-
emically, said Norris. His
school's accomplishments in-
clude maintaining an "A'
grade for three consecutive
years, continually achieving
Adequate Yearly Progress sta-


tus under No Child Left Be-
hind, becoming a state music
demonstration school and
being selected as a Target Top
1,000 school in the nation.
Nelson's personal achieve-
ments include being selected
as teacher of the year twice
and winning three national
awards for excellence in eco-
nomic education.
Nelson attended the
University of South Florida,
where he received a bache-
lor's degree in music, a mas-
ter's of education degree in
education leadership and a
doctorate in curriculum and
instruction with an emphasis
in interdisciplinary educa-
tion.
Taking over at Booker
Holding the hands of her
mother and father standing
beside her, Jill Dorsett thank-
ed the district for choosing
her to serve as principal at
Booker High School.
An educator from Orange
County with 15 year's experi-
ence, Dorsett has previous
experience implementing a
small schools community
model. Sarasota County's
high schools have been devel-
oping and implementing re-
search based programs tar-
geting smaller learning com-
munities to create a more
personalized learning envi-
ronment.

Free flu shots available for children at area clinics


STAFF REPORT

Sarasota County Health
Department officials an-
nounced they are now offer-
ing free flu shots at the four
health department child im-
munization clinic sites in
Sarasota, Venice and North
Port. This includes children
ages 6 months through 18


years. Parent must be present
and bring prior shot records.
"We are hopeful that this
will encourage families to get
their children the protection
needed to prevent flu or
reduce the severity of symp-
toms from flu-like illness,"
said Dr. Sandra MacLeod, the
health department's medical
executive director.


For information on immu-
nization days and times, call
(941) 861-2900.
Anyone else who wants to
have a flu shot may now re-
ceive one as well.
Optima Health Servrces
provides flu shots at its office
by appointment only. Call
747-1585 for ad appointment.
Residents are advised to per-


sist in calling the number if
they don't get through initial-
ly since the office continues
to receive numerous calls
daily.
The cost is $20 for the flu
vaccine injection and $35 for
Flu-Mist. Cash, check and
Medicare B are accepted. Pre-
sent your Medicare B card to
get the shot at no charge.


TERV from page 1 A
terson, who now can run for a
third term in 2006, said she
felt uncomfortable with the
decision.
"I prefer not to be at the
head of the decision making
on this," Patterson said. "My
gut feeling is we're wasting
people's money to cover our
own political positions."
Patterson said she still had
not made a decision on seek-


ing another term in office and
it was still too early to do so.
The other commissioner who
benefits from the decision,
commissioner David Mills,
has already announced that
he does not plan to seek a fifth
term in office.
"We'll all Lng together
one way or the other," Staub
said after the board's vote.

ways keeps rising," he said.
The beginning
Work on implementing the
national 2-1-1 program local-
ly began in August 2002.
Combining the two First Call
agencies let the counties redi-
rect the funds they had been
contributing to them, and
putting the service under the
aegis of the United Way
broVght funding from the
South Sarasota, Sarasota and
Manatee United Ways.
The service was set up in
space in the Sarasota United
Way office. A number of the
participating agencies also
are recipients of United Way


funding.
"United Way agencies are
part of that because in many
cases they have been the first
call for help," said UWM 2-1-1
board member Nancy Pike,
head of the Sarasota county
libraries. -
UWM 2-1-1 also is funded
by the Community Foun-
dation of Sarasota, The Selby
Foundation, the John L. and
James S. Knight Foundation
and the Florida Department
of Children and Families.
A one-time grant from Gulf
Coast Community Founda-
tion ofVenice paid for most of
the supplies needed for the
service, including the most


important parts the phone
system and the 2-1-1 switch.
"We're very, very grateful
to Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice," Suar-
ez said. .
New and improved
Going to the 2-1-1 system
upgraded the service in two
major ways, according to,
Pike.
"We have expanded hours
and a simpler number," she
said.
, Operators are now avail-
able every day, around the
clock.
The 800-plus participating
agencies offer more than


2,300 programs, according to
Suarez. Help is available in
150 languages, he said, but
not for every need.
"The difference between 9-
1-1 and 2-1-1 is, 9-1-1 is for
life-threatening emergen-
cies," Suarez said. "2-1-1 is so-
cial service help."
The big picture
UWM 2-1-1 is one of more
than 500 United Way call cen-
ters nationwide; there are
about 6,700 in total.
Of those, only about 30 are
accredited, and only 10 of
those are 2-1-1-type systems.
UWM 2-1-1 has completed its
accreditation requirements.


There are 2-1-1 systems in
about half of Florida's 67
counties, Suarez said, but
about 75 percent of the state's
population has access to the
service, compared to a na-
tional rate of 32 percent. The
disparity between county and
population coverage in Flor-
ida is due to a lack of coverage
in small and rural conwies,
Suarez said.
UWM 2-1-1 is exploring
moving into DeSoto and
Hardee counties'in the fu-
ture. A bill in Congress
would provide $200 million
in funding for system expan-
sion..
UWM 2-1-1 also is looking.


to expand its referral re-
sources.
Agencies can be added
through its Web site, uw211
manasota.net, or by contact-
ing Suarez at asuarez@uwm
21 lmanasota.net.
People interested in vol-
unteering their time to a
nonprofit can use the same
route to submit their per-
sonal information and inter-
ests.
"2-1-1 is not only about
getting help," Suarez said, "it's
about giving help."

HARBOR from page lA


of council members asked
city staff to move as quickly as
possible to draw up new ordi-
nances to empower police to
remove and impound unreg-
istered and derelict vessels
anchored in the harbor.
City Manager Marty Black
estimated it could take 60-90
days to draw up, advertise
and then have council vote
on new city boating laws.
Currently there are no city
boating laws regulating Ven-
ice's waterways.
"What I hear is a step for-
ward," said Venice resident
Bob Crosley, who has advo-
cated for a master harbor
plan. "I really hope we can
move forward with some-
thing, really soon,* .having
waited 13-14years."

No harbor plan
Council members are not
creating a master harbor
plan, mostly because of
Venice's small harbor and the
costs that would be involved
in operating it. A harbor plan
would have detailed regula-
tions for boat operations and
storage and require hiring
someone to regulate it.
'A more cost-effective ap-
proach is to create city laws
that say how a boat must be
anchored and how long it
can remain in Venice's har-
bor.
Monday's proposed ordi-
nances limit mooring to no,
more than three days and
outlaws people living on their
boat within city limits un] .
it's docked at a marina thTi.
..., ..' -' 5 .


allows live-aboards.
As for enforcement, Phil-
lips would remain the lone
police officer patrolling Ven-
ice's harbor and shorelines.
Private citizens at Venice
Yacht Club, located direct
next to the harbor, have vol-
unteered to act as another set
of eyes.
Ernie Skinner, commodore
of the Venice Yacht Club,
wants to create a public
mooring field using taxpayer
funds and monitored by club
members.
"We see it potentially
being more than just six
moorings. ... We see it as a
partnership, maybe creat-
ing a community sailing
program,' Skinner told
.doune4l. "#, .


Public moorings
Talk revolved around the
idea of Venice installing six
public moorings at an esti-
mated cost of $114,000,, ac-
cording to a consultant who
listed the average per-moor-
ing price at $19,000 for equip-
ment and installation.
Moorings are a permanent
type of anchorage boats tie
up to. A traditional boat anch-
or has the potential to lose its
grip and tear up sea grass and
other native habitat within
the water.
These six moorings would
be free, and a combination of
police marine patrols and
.Venice Yacht Club supervi-
sion would make sure no ves-
sel stayed longer than three
days. The intent is to provide
a safe harbor for travelers to
rest or ride out bad weather.


One marina owner, Steve
Harner of the Crow's Nest
Marina Restaurant, urged
council to charge for the use
of any moorings installed.
People in cars must pay to
stay in a hotel, so why should
those in boats get to stay for
free, he said.
Harner pointed out he
brought in an estimated
$25,000 last year at his docks in
sales and submerged land fees.
"(These boaters) are pay-
ing their weight," Harner said.
"I strongly suggest others do
the same. ... The problem
with derelict boats and peo-
ple anchoring out is people
looking for a free ride."
City Attorney Bob Ander-
son advised council he needs
time to research the implica-
"tioris and regulations that go
with creating a public moor-


ing field. r
Ordinances to remove ves-
sels stored in the harbor, how-
ever, can move much more
quickly.
Anderson reminded coun-
cil that with new city laws also
comes additional enforce-
ment. That means more
money, so members have to
consider the laws they want
based on what they're willing
to spend to enforce them.
"This is really a matter of
how much of city resources
do you want to regulate this?"
Anderson asked. "Right now,
we have a marine patrol offi-
cer and one marine boat. ...
This (workshop) is looking for
where there are gaps, to fill
those in now."

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. di
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.

Mitchell gets

the job done

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

She's the consummate
team player. A coach's dream,
she knows her role and comes
to play. And Venice High
girls basketball is better off
because of her.
One of five seniors on the
2004-2005 team, forward Vick-
ie Mitchell is a leader through
her hard work and production
on and off the court.
"Vickie does all the dirty
work," said head coach Joe
DiGiacomo, whose team
carries a 19-6 record into this
week's Class 5A District 11
Tournament. "She never
complains.
She comes to
play basket-
ball and then
goes home.
She doesn't
get wrapped
up in all the
drama.".
While
Mitchell ois Mitchell
not known
for being a scoring machine,
she consistently gets her eight
points a game and helps out
in other areas.
"Rebounds and assists,"
said Mitchell of her biggest
contributions. "I want to get
the other players involved.'
Lisa (Hough) is the captain.
Me and Dana (Nostin) try to
pick up where she leaves off."
Mitchell has always been a
post-up .forward. She played
on the Venice High junior
varsity under coach Juan
Navarro.
"I'm small, but I'm ag-
gressive and jump well," said
Mitchell, a gifted track and
field athlete as well.
DiGiacomo said Mitchell
doesn't melt under the spot-
light.
"In big games, Vickie
stands out," said Jersey Joe.
"She always stands out.
She'll come up big."
A knee injury during the
summer of 2002 wiped out
Mitchell's sophomore sea-
son. She tore the ACL in her
right knee.
Mitchell made it back for
the 2003 track season but
was still hobbling because of
the injury.
"It took a half second off
my time," said the sprinter.
Mitchell kept working and
made the varsity basketball
team as a junior. She was a
big part of a 24-6 team.
Mitchell says the right
knee is now all the back.
"It's 110 percent," she said.
"Now my left knee hurts
because I've been babying
my right knee. It hurts when
I'm pivoting -- there's a lot of
stop and go."
Mitchell doesn't foresee
the left knee giving her any
trouble for her senior track
season. She'll again run the
sprints and throw the shot
put. Mitchell will try to regain
the form that allowed her to
qualify for the state meet as a
freshman.
Mitchell is also awaiting
word on being accepted to
Florida State University. Con-
sidering she has a 4.0 GPA
and is a gifted athlete, she
should be Tallahassee bound.
"I have cousins and an aun-
tie who live there," said Mit-
chell, who is a cousin to form-
er VHS girls hoops standout
Fredette Mitchell and current
Indian footballer Alvin.
But first, there is unfin-
ished business on the basket-
ball hardwood.
"We want to beat Charlotte
and win district," she said. "In
regional, we'll take it one
game at a time." You can be
sure Mitchell will showup with
her "A" game.
* *


Venice will play at 7:30 p.m.
Thursday in the district tour-
nament semifinal at Lake-
wood Ranch High. The Lady
Indians will take on Lake-
wood Ranch.
The district championship
game is scheduled for 7 p.m.
Saturday at Lakewood Ranch.

Jackson powers Indians to OT win


The Venice High boys var-
sity basketball team was a lit-
tle sloppy in the final minute
of regulation Tuesday night,
but the Indians made up for
it with a perfect overtime
period.
Venice held the visiting
Palmetto Tigers scoreless in
the extra four-minute ses-
sion. Meanwhile, center Dex-
ter Jackson put the cap on
a great night on both ends
of the floor, powering the
Indians to a 63-51 victory.
Venice is now 12-11 with
two regular season games to
go both at home later this
week. Palmetto, which had
also lost to Venice early in
the season, saw its record
dip to 10-12.
Jackson had a monster
night for the Indians. Offen-
sively he finished with 19
points, six of those coming in
overtime. Defensively, he had
five blocks. Throw in a big pile
of boards, and it's no wonder
he was the difference.

Venice's Ariel Bonilla drives
against Palmetto's Andre
Hills.

Venice held a 51-46 lead
with a minute remaining in
the fourth quarter. Palmetto
guard Chris Smith, who had a


big second half, hit a 3-point-
er to make it 49-46. Venice
turned the ball over and
Donald Smith followed a
miss to tie the score and
send the game into overtime.
From there, it was all
Venice however.
Bill Mehserle scored on,a
drive to make it 53-51. Ariel
Bonilla then sank the first of
two free throws. He missed the
second, but Jackson hit the 0
boards and followed the shot
to make it 56-51. Jackson then
had his second dunk of the
night to up the count to 58-51.
Jackson then took a pass from
Steve Stasko to give Venice a
nine-point lead.
An overtime rout was on.
The game was close most
of the way with Palmetto
having issues with Venice's
superior size and the Indians
having trouble with the
Tigers' quickness.
Besides Jackson, Stasko
also had a good game inside
with tough rebounding and
a couple of big blocks. For-
ward Kalen Lyons played
some inspired defense. Guard

A morning at


Spanish Point with


Sarasota Crew


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

The youngsters who com-
pete in rowing regattas
around the state, regionally
and nationally as members
of Sarasota Crew, are on the
move on practice days from
the moment they arrive at
the parking lot of Historic
Spanish Point in Osprey, their
training site.
First, they jog from their
cars to the waterfront site,,
from which their racing shells
are launched into the waters
of Little Sarasota Bay. That is
followed by 30 minutes of
calisthenics, or exercising on
rowing machines. Not every-
*one can work on the 30
machines at once, so the 105
junior and senior high school
boys and girls are divided
into groups.
From there, it's onto the
water to practice racing tech-
niques and train in 4- and
8-oared shells with their
coaches.
In the cold morning of last,
Saturday, this regimen was
demonstrated to parents
and grandparents, siblings,
friends and financial sup-
porters, who converged onto
Historic Spanish Point to
observe. Not all the guests
were content to watch. Some
joined the coaches and row-
ers in shells.
It was, after all, an event


designed to let people know
about the program, and some
wanted to learn to row. But
most of the more than 100
observers were there to learn
how these dedicated young-
sters spend about 2-1/2
hours on each of six days
each week training, practic-
ing and getting into physical
condition to compete in re-
gattas from September into
June every year.
If you had spent Saturday
morning with Sarasota Crew,
you'd understand how hard
these youngsters work at
their sport. As Randy Higel
of Nokomis, a coach, put it,
"We offer a competitive pro-
gram. Winning is a conse-
quence of conditioning,
teaching techniques and
practice. These kids they're
in grades 8 through 12 -7
need time on the water, and
a lot more."
Saturday's event focused
on the "lot more." On arrival
in the parking lot, club
members and participating
visitors were assigned to one
of four groups: varsity men
and women or novice men
and women. Working with a
coach, each group did its
calisthenics or ergometrics
(the rowing machines), after
jogging to the Historic Span-
ish Point waterfront from
the parking lot.
The routine on the ma-
chines for rowers is 60 min-


Looking at the big picture,
most people would just be
happy to make it as far as
their 90th birthday.
Bob Marion celebrated his
big day Monday with an
exclamation point.
Fellow senior softball play-
ers gathered around for coffee
and doughnuts following
Monday morning league play
at the Foxworthy Complex.
Marion had enjoyed his
morning workout playing
right field'for the Blue team.
"Not only is it fun playing,
but there are a lot of nice
guys here," said Marion. "I've
made a lot of friends."
Marion's brother-in-law,
Nick Lisena, and neighbor
Dave Laverdiere, were the
schemers plotting the birth-
day goodies at the ballpark.
Marion keeps an amaz-
ingly brisk schedule for a 90-
year-old. He plays softball in
the Monday and Wednesday
morning 70-plus leagues at
Foxworthy. He golfs on Wed-
lnesday afternoons at Water-


utes of exercise. Saturday's
visitors spent much less time
to appreciate what takes
place ordinarily during the
week. Strength and endur-
ance are essential to rowers,
according to Higel.
Each member of the vars-
ity men's crew spends a day

ford. Twice a week he plays
tennis at the public courts
close to his home in Pine-
brook Lakes. Marion even
plays boccie ball there.
The active life has treated
Marion well. He still has
good wheels, as evidenced by
the fact that he acts as a
pinch-runner for hobbling
players decades younger than
him.
"I don't have arthritis," he
points out. "I take a pill for
thyroid. That's about it."
Marion began playing
Little League baseball in 1925
back in his hometown of
Marion, N.Y. He played in
high school, at Morrisville
College and then some
semi-pro ball.
"I've been playing ball for
80 years," he said. "I used to
play third base.. I've played
every position through the
years. I didn't play softball
until I got down here. They
didn't have softball up there."
Marion owned an auto-
motive body and paint shop
in Rochester, N.Y., before he
retired and moved to Venice
20 years ago. He still spends


a week on weight training at
the YMCA, in addition to the
calisthenics/jogging/rowing
machine regimen and on-
the-water practice.
On Saturday, a,glimpse of
the schedule was offered to
the visitors, along with a tour
of Historic Spanish Point.


his summers in upstate New
York but loves the Florida
winters.
"This weather is great to
be outdoors and doing
things," he said. "I remember
cutting wood 14 degrees be-
low zero in New York. I don't
need anymore of that. I come
down in the middle of Sep-
tember and leave at the end
of April."
When Marion first came
to Venice, he noticed seniors
playing softball at Wellfield.
"I saw them out.there," he
said. "I stopped by to see if
they needed any help."
Marion who began his
slow-pitch career at the age of
70 has been playing ever since.
"I used to .go to Braden-
ton and Sun City Center to
play, but now I just play
here," he said of Foxworthy,
formerly known as By-Pass
Park.
Marion has words of sim-
ple advice to make life more
enjoyable.
"I don't know if I have a
secret," said Marion, who
along with wife Anne has
four grown children. "I don't
let things bother me and
drive me crazy. If you're hav-
ing a bad day today, hope
and pray tomorrow may be
better."


Every youngster qualifies
for the schedule of regattas.
Higel said that their technical
proficiency, scores on the
rowing machines the coach-
es' staffing of the crews de-
termine participation.

Athlete of the Week

After a slow start to the season, the Venice High
boys varsity basketball team has turned it
around, and senior forward Steve Stasko has
been a big reason why. He has scored big
buckets, hit the boards and has come up with
steals with his quick hands.

Rowing has become the
fastest-growing sport in the
United States. It exploded in
popularity in the early 1990s,
according to Ted Swinford,
head coach. Until then, just a
few colleges and universities
on the east coast offered the
sport. But in 1972, the Title IX
law was introduced to pro-
mote gender equality in cam-
ptis athletic programs.
Not mnuch happened until
several lawsuits were filed
with the U.S. Department of
Education Office of Civil
Rights, and women's sports
program were initiated. Col-
leges and universities were
forced to accommodate the
interests and abilities of both
sexes. To preserve teams in
major sports, colleges and
universities introduced row-
ing, field hockey and soccer.
All attracted women and
involved bigger squads.
Rowing has become a
major sport,' according to
Swinford, who rowed for the
U.S. Olympic team and rank-
ed among the top competi-
tors in the country. The sport
has flourished to the extent
that scholarships and finan-
cial aid are offered to men


and women. Intercollegiate
teams are nationwide. Be-
cause of the number of
women being recruited, he
said, it is common for wom-
en's rowing teams to be
offered scholarships and be
fully funded. Men's teams
often are unfunded clubs.

Venice Police. Department Of f icers j~ob hunting


A number of sworn VPD officers say they are

looking for jobs because the department is badly

managed. A department official says searching

for better job opportunities is common among


relatively recent hires.


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

At least five Venice police
officers are looking for new
jobs.
According to one officer,
lack of leadership and bad
management at VPD is the
reason they are sending out
applications.
Another officer said such a
potential exodus is unprece-
dented at VPD.
"I've never seen anything
like it in all the years I been
here," he said. "Say there's five
- and I've heard there are as
many as eight that's a pret-
ty good percentage of our 38
patrol officers."
Venice Police Chief Jim
Hanks did not return phone
calls, but Deputy Chief Dan
McGoogan confirmed that
some officers are grazing.


"I've heard each has five
years or less on the force, and
are looking around to see
what other departments are
offering and what their op-
tions are," McGoogan said.
"They have long-range goals,
how can they better them-
selves."
McGoogan also. pointed
out that union negotiations
are ongoing, which could give
rise to some discontent
among rank and file.
McGoogan said some de-
partments offer more pay and
take home cars. He said there
are still a couple of depart-
ments where the officers
don't have to pay anything
into their health care cover-
age.
"You know, it is relatively
easy to make a career change
with less than five years," he
said, "but five to 10, while you

how growth and traffic will
continue in the future can do
so during a series of work-
shops scheduled throughout
the month of February.
By law, every seven years
all county and municipal
governments are required to
review their comprehensive
plans the document that
dictates the timing and. pat-
tern of growth and the impact
growth has on infrastructure


such as libraries, roads, water
and sewer lines and the en-
vironment.
The review process in-
cludes public input on a vari-
ety of issues, from growth to
water policies and other is-
sues that define the quality of
life.
The idea behind the re-
view is to respond to chang-
ing trends and conditions in
the community, as well as
changing state and regional
growth management policies.
The process results in amend-
ments that keep the plan
aligned with community val-
ues and visions.

Trees in Deep Creek and North Englewood have
been found infected with the disease, which
appears to have entered South Sarasota County.


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

People who have citrus
trees in their yards may want
to take a picture soon, be-
cause new cases of canker are
being found in the area nearly
every day and they may soon
be gone.
The latest discovery was on
Nuremburg Boulevard, be-
tween Rampart Boulevard
and Rio de Janeiro Avenue..
Only one tree was found
and removed, but Mark Fa-
gan, spokesman for the state
Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services, said
a more thorough investiga-
tion of trees in the area is
going to take place in the
coming days and weeks. The
state has not established a
quarantine zone for any por-
tion of the Deep Creek area as
of Tuesday, but Fagan said
one is likely by early next
week.
"We are making a closer
inspection of trees in the
area," he said. "It takes a few
days and then we will start
notifying people within the
area about removing more
trees."

CANKER PREVENTION
You can help in the following
ways:
* Do not move citrus off your
property.
* Do not give citrus to your
friends or neighbors.
* Do not ship citrus.
* Do not prune or clip citrus.
* Do not plant citrus trees.
* If you come into contact with
the citrus in your yard, decon-
taminate with any household
disinfectant safe for personal
. use.
* Do not dispose of citrus tree
clippiongs or fruit remains.. If
you have remains that must
be disposed of, double-bag
them for disposal with your
household garbage, not your
yard trash.


Moving north
The news comes a day
after officials confirmed two
canker-infected trees were
discovered in Punta Gorda
Isles on Casey Key Drive and a
quarantine zone was estab-
lished for, a 1,900-foot area
there. Homeowners started
being notified of the need to
take trees within the past
week.
Fagan also confirmed that
state officials are likely to
expand northward a quaran-
tine zone in Englewood Isles
in Sarasota County. Ten trees
were found within the past
week just outside the original
quarantine zone.
The zone covers roughly 4
square miles of land on either
side of State Road 776 from
Forked Creek to the north to
Artists Avenue to the south. It
was established Feb. 25, 2003.
That means, had the new
canker not been 'found, the
quarantine would have been
lifted on the two-year anni-
versary of its establishment.
In quarantine zones, no
citrus trees, fruits or plants are
supposed to be removed from
those areas, and no citrus
trees may be planted there.
In the newly discovered
areas, agriculture representa-
tives will also seek permission
from property owners to
allow workers to remove the


trees within six weeks.
People who refuse to com-
ply will get an agriculture war-
rant and could face fines and
possible arrest.
Fagan said homeowners
are reimbursed for their trees;
the amount is determined by
the .size and type.
All citrus trees in the quar-
antine zone will be tested for
canker, and officials will ex-
pand the zone as needed, he
said.
Bad news
Canker is considered a
danger to Florida's $9 billion-
a-year citrus industry and its
removal is a top priority to
protect the industry from the
disease. ,


Citrus canker is highly con-
tagious and can be spread
rapidly by windborne rain,
lawn mowers and other land-
scaping equipment, animals
and birds, people carrying the
infection on their hands,
clothing or equipment and
moving infected or exposed
plants or plant parts. Canker
causes premature leaf and
fruit drop.
People who suspect their
trees may have citrus canker
should call the citrus canker
toll-free help line at (800) 282-
5153 and an inspector will be
sent to check the trees.
Additional information
about citrus canker quaran-
tine zones and decontamina-
tion procedures is available
on the state agriculture Web
site at: doacs.state.fl.us/
canker.

OUR VIEW


Foster children's well-being depends on state alone


J ust who is responsible for determining
when foster children can be returned to
their parents and, in the meantime, if they
are being properly looked after?
The Department of Children and Families
has the ultimate responsibility for foster chil-
dren. DCF is in charge of home visits and mak-
ing recommendations to the courts when or
if children should be returned home. And,
while DCF has jurisdiction, judges are required
to review each case.
In light of the workload each judge carries
and the sometimes dysfunctional record of
DCF, the system is ripe with risks.


In the past, some counties have given judges
and DCF help in the form of volunteer com-
mittees, or boards, made up of concerned citi-
zens. The members would review each case
and make recommendations to the court.
The complexity of some cases might make
it tough for volunteers even those who
have had extensive experience in the field -
to make a qualified decision. Still, given the
tremendous backlog of cases and duties each
judge faces daily, it seems there should be an
alternative to placing the burden of reviewing
foster care cases on the judiciary.
DCF has the obligation under state law to


make regular checks on foster care homes to
validate the safety and welfare of the child.
The state case worker also develops a parent-
ing plan that must be followed for the child to
be reimited with the family. That plan could
involve things such as job training for par-
ents, drug counseling or even anger manage-
ment classes.
When DCF is confident the child can be
returned to the home, it petitions the court to
make the move. The judge then has to review
the case and make a decision.
While a role would have to be carefully
defined, we believe there is a need for an


intermediary that could back up the DCF on
collecting data and give the judge a solid rec-
ommendation built more on firsthand know-
ledge than any judge would be able to collect.
And, given the scarcity of qualified volun-
teers, perhaps the board could be paid a small
stipend to reimburse its members for expenses.
Critics might say it adds another layer to
on already stacked bureaucracy. We believe
the program would give children one more
advocate in their comer and provide one
more safety net to make sure kids aren't sent
back into abusive homes or taken advantage
of in foster care.


Small-town feeling


at stake downtown


ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST

The people of Venice are
speaking out, identifying their
priorities and indicating their
preferences for the future of
the city in the laudable En-
vision Venice meetings. These
views, which observers at the
several meetings report have
been consistent, should guide
city council as it considers an
appeal to overturn the height
exception for a West Venice
Avenue property recently
granted by the planning com-
mission.
In response to audience
questions at the Feb. 1 meet-
ing expressing some skepti-
cism about the value of citi-
zen input, planning commis-
sion chair John Osmulski
assured the gathering that cit-
izens would be listened to.
However, the recent decision
by the commission to grant
an height exception for a new
building at 215-217 W. Venice
Ave. suggests it may not "see
the scale of buildings" and the
"small-town feeling" in the
same way as the citizens.
City council has received
an appeal from citizens and
will conduct a "de novo" hear-
ing on this zoning exception
that will present an, opportu-
nity to show that it is listen-
ng.
At the recent meeting,
which I attended, the citizens
sent a message that they val-
ued most highly the "small-
town feeling" of the city and
saw its identity rooted in that
small-town feeling, and grow-
ing out of its "historic and
architectural character." The
largest number of citizens in-
dicating their priorities chose
these two items as the key to'
this community. A special
interest was also expressed
about "downtown" as central
to the small-town feeling.
The scale of buildings was
one of several items listed
most frequently among
things the citizens wanted to
preserve. Others on the list -
the first being "walkability" -
included "open and natural
beaches," "natural areas for
passive recreation" and, once
again, that "small-town feel-
ing."
The objection I and others
have to the exception is not
the design of the building, but
the fact that at 44 feet it will be
at least twice as high as most
of its neighbors and it wipl set
a precedent for similar excep-
tions, changing the small-
town feeling and threatening
the scale of downtown.
City staff in its report to the
commission described the
area as follows: "Adjacent to
the subject parcel are existing
two-story structures to the


east and west. Two stories is
the predominant building of
the commercial block." An
examination of the area pre-
sents a different perspective,
suggesting the staff report is
in error, or at least the area
may be viewed quite differ-
ently.
Only four buildings in the
200 block have two stories -
that is, buildings with win-
dows, suggesting potential or
actual living spaces on a sec-
ond floor. One, the El Patio
Hotel is, in effect, a double
building, so one could rea-
sonably count five.
All the other buildings are
one story, consisting of about
14 separate store addresses.
Some of the buildings have
several feet above the level of
a one-story flat roof, usually a
mansard roof or design ele-
ment, but no windows.
These buildings seem to be
in the 15-to-18 foot height
range, short of two stories.
Number 213, immediately
adjacent to the property, con-
trary to the staff report, ap-
pears to be a one-story build-
ing with about a seven-to 10-
foot rise above the door, mak-
ing it well under 20 feet.
Venice Stationers, just one
building away at 209-211, is a
large store with just one story
and a flat roof. Several other
buildings in the block are
similar.
It is possible the planning
commission may have incor-
rectly considered the area as
predominantly two stories. In
any event, there is no building
of three stories, and the com-
mission approved four sto-
ries. The building approved is
higher than the Bank of
America building. .
The 'issue of exceptions is
just heating up. Petitions are
being circulated asking the
council to end the practice.
Planning commission deci-
sions on exceptions are final
in Venice unless anyone
wants to appeal to the elected
council and pay a $300 fee.
A number of other com-
munities, including Sarasota
County, have planning com-
missionis that play only an
advisory role, with. elected
commissioners making ap-
provals. Other cities have
adopted "no exception" poli-
cies.
One of the past exceptions
that has drawn criticism, and
that I find even some plan-
ning commission and council
members now admit, private-
ly, turned out to be too large
and intrusive, is the project
allowing 105-foot condomini-
um buildings along the Intra-
coastal Waterway.
That is not to say that for-
mer advocates see no posi-
tives. They accepted that
developer Michael Miller
would link the new towers to
redevelopment of the area
between Business 41 and the
waterway north of Venice
Avenue, which they saw as
substandard. That is a goal
they valued and that, they
report, influenced their deci-
sion.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Abortions are result of family planning cuts


Editor:
Letter writer Pam Ferreira wants to blame Planned
Parenthood for the increase in the abortion rate. Does she
blame her doctor when more people make appointments for
the flu?
The reason abortion rates are rising in some states is
because more women are faced with unintended pregnancies.
Why is this happening? Because funds for family planning are
decreasing under the current state and federal administra-
tions; and more tax dollars are being spent on teaching only
abstinence to teens, which means they are not receiving infor-
mation on prevention.
About 95 percent of our patients come to us for family plan-
ning services, and it is a solid fact that Planned Parenthood
does more to prevent the need for abortion than any other
organization in the United States.'Abortions should be legal,
safe and rare. '

Wendy Sears Grassi
Director of Public Affairs
Planned Parenthood of Southwest & Central Florida


Fight the enemy
on his own turf
Editor:
I am a retired Air Force offi-
cer (more than 20 years active
duty). My wife is also an Air
Force veteran.
We realize some would
rather wait until we have the
radical Islamic terrorists
fighting in our streets.
Fortunately, the vast majority
of Americans understand it is
always better to fight your
enemy on their territory.
Thomas Sowell said it best:
"Since terrorists are pouring
into Iraq in response to calls
from international terrorist
networks, the number of
those who are killed is espe-
cially important, for these are
people who will no longer be
around to launch more
attacks on American soil. Iraq
has become a magnet for
enemies of the United States,
a place where they can be
killed wholesale, thousands
of miles away."
The Swift Boat Vets did
exactly what all good red-
blooded Americans with
courage would do: tell the
truth, and they did, while the
other side continues its lies.


Why hasn't John. Kerry
released. all his military
records? Is it because his first
discharge was for other than
honorable service? Maybe it
will show why he was not
tried for treason.
We are proud of our young
men and women in the mili-
tary, law enforcement and
firemen who are protecting
our nation, its cities and its
people. They are doing this
every day at home and
abroad with the gallantry of
our World War II heroes. God
bless all of them and their
families.

Private retirement.
plans can succeed
Editor:
I have recently read two
opposing opinions in your
editorial pages- regarding
President Bush's proposed
changes to the Social Security
system. One side represents
the idea that government
knows best and what it pro-
poses or does is best for us,
while the other side feels that
we citizens know best what is


in our best interests. I, per-
sonally, favor the latter since it
has not been our government
but our people who have
made this nation great.
I recommend we avoid
political propaganda, study
the experiences of those who
have privatized their systems
in the past and learn from
them, both mistakes and cor-
rect decisions.
There are those who pre-
sent the experiences of Brit-
ain and Chile, for example, as
failures; on. the other hand,
certain counties in Texas and
our own Congress have long
histories of positive results
with retirement plans outside
of Social Security. Interested
parties should contact the
Texas Public Policy Foun-
dation at TexasPolicy.com for
some enlightening informa-
tion.
I am disturbed that the
decidedly left-leaning AARP
supposedly representing the
interests of its members, is
doing the opposite for its
members' children, the future
retirees who will be affected
by any changes in the system.
Why, except for transparent
adherence along with that of
all of the left-leaning media to'
an anti-Bush agenda, would it
come out so strongly against
the concept without first giv-
ing the concept the benefit of
serious study? Let us concen-
trate on the message rather
than the messenger.

Education is still
best contraceptive
Editor:
In response to "Abortions
up and so are PP's profits," I
can first conclude that Pam
Ferreira has made ,claims
against Lorraine Coccaro and
Planned Parenthood with an
opinion marred by ignorance.


It is misleading to state
abortion is on the rise due to
Planned Parenthood's educa-
tional programs. In a 2001
report, then-U.S. Surgeon
General David Satcher en-
dorsed sex education that
includes information on both
abstinence and contracep-
tion. The report concludes
that such programs have
demonstrated positive results
in delaying sexual activity and
increasing contraceptive use.
Ironically,, the Bush admin-
istration has once again
switched the truth to generate
the myth that teaching teens
about contraception sends
them "mixed messages," and
encourages sexual activity.
This is one of the many myths
manufactured by the Bush
team, right along with weap-
ons of mass destruction, all
major combat is over in Iraq,
Social Security will go bank-
rupt, and the list goes on.
The truth is, abortions
have risen due to the lack of
education about contracep-
tion.
Young adults are finding
themselves unsupported, by
their families, their schools
and their communities. They
are given this rhetoric about
abstaining from sexual activi-
ty and let's face it the rise in
abortion is the result of this
attitude. They are fearful of
seeking contraception and
this only leads to pregnancy.
And furthermore, "Pres-
ident Bush's allegiance to
abstinence-only education is
not only out-of-step with
established scientific research
and the American public, but
it also imperils of the lives and
health of Amerjca's youth."

16A VENICE GONDOLIER SUN


LET 'EM HAVE IT! SHOULD : .... .. "

THEIR i m INSURANCE ., L..

Four-story building would be tip of iceberg


Camel's nose. Should city council reject the four-story build-
ing? Absolutely. That is just the nose of the camel in the tent.
The other businesses support it because they will sell their
buildings for an enormous amount of money to developers
.who will put up four stories. We need to make a stand and let
developers know that our main street is unique and should not
be tampered with. The people who own that building should


be ashamed of themselves.

Cross. I had the occasion
recently to go to Bon Secours
Venice Hospital. I know it is
no longer a Catholic hospital,
but why did they take out all
the crosses in the rooms? Are
they ashamed of our Lord?
After all, he is the great physi-
cian.
Free insurance. This is in
regard to the police getting a
raise and getting benefits. Not
only should they get a raise,
but neither the police or fire-
men should pay for their
health insurance. These are
dangerous occupations that
protect us. We have our prior-
ities skewed. We cannot afford
to take care of our police, but
we can afford insurance for
council members, those
splendid palms and a chil-
dren's water park. Very inter-
esting.
Out to pasture. I have an
idea for a real big eyesore.
There is an area where the
businesses line U.S. 41
through South Venice. Behind
those businesses, that would
be Englewood Road. All the
trash, garbage and the parked
cars and junk, gravel and
weeds that are let go are an
eyesore for all the people who
live on Englewood Road. It is
beyond an eyesore; it looks
like a cow pasture.
Don't touch it. One of the
most convenient things about
Venice is the commercial area
just east of the island that is
scheduled for redevelop-
ment. There are many talent-
ed tradesmen there. The area
is a microcosm of what makes
America a "can-do" country. It
is a low-crime area in spite of


its appearance. The cheap
buildings there mean the
tradesmen can charge us less
for their services. The yuppies
of our country seem deter-
mined to drive out of Florida
the very people who make it
work. I say let the yuppies cre-
ate a faux Italian Potemkin vil-
lage on East Venice Avenue
but leave the back areas the
way they are. Long live the tal-
ented and essential working
class: You will miss them if
they are pushed out.
Wasted money. The bypass
areas that are being made on
the Venice Avenue Bridge are
the dumbest things I have
seen since the planting of the
palm trees on Business 41.
There has not been a motor-
ized vehicle go 'across the
bridge as it is not wheelchair
accessible. If they intended to
make it wheelchair accessi-
ble, they would have made
the east and west lanes one.
way, thus avoiding passing.
There are going to be 18
bypasses on the bridge. This is
overkill and a big waste of tax-
payers' money.
Three points. I have three
Let 'em Have Its: One, why
can't there be a garbage can at


Venice Memorial Gardens for
people to throw away old
flowers? It makes it difficult
for people to change flowers.
Jesse Knight has garbage
cans. Two, the naming of the
park after Merle Graser: I am
against that; it should be
named for a person who has
served the community well
and has passed on. Harry
Case is a good one. Three, on
the subject of firefighters. It
seems that the Venice Fire De-
partment has not employed a
black firefighter since 1926
and there are almost 70 in
that department. It is strange
they .have never had a black
firefighter.
Comical. It is nice that the
Gondolier Sun will be pro-
duced three days a week, but I
think they should eliminate
the council meetings at Ven-
ice and put them into the car-
toon section. Some of their
comments are so juvenile and
degrading. Read the newspa-

LETTERS from page 15A
Tell reps to extend
vets tax exemption
Editor:
Now is the time for the
Florida Legislature to pass a
bill that allows surviving
spouses of our veterans rated
10-90 percent disabled to
retain the $5,000 ad valorem
tax exemption. We are very
close and need you to contact
our local delegation and im-
press on them that we want
Senate Bill 550 and House Bill
83 to pass this legislative ses-
sion.
Now is the time to e-mail
or call Sens. Mike Bennett
and Lisa Carlton and Reps.
Donna Clarke, Ron Reagan,
Bill Galvano and Nancy De-
tert and ask them to support
passage of this key veterans
legislation.

Violence toward
animals is a sign
Editor:
For the sake of both ani-
mals and the community as a
whole, it is to be hoped that
the teens accused of killing
and dismembering a squirrel
will be punished and receive
counseling. Psychiatrists, FBI
profilers and law enforce-
ment officials have repeatedly
documented that kids who
are cruel to animals are likely
to turn that violence against
humans.
In many criminals child-
hood violence went unexam-
ined until it was directed
toward people.
Brenda Spencer, who
opened fire at a school, killing
two children and injuring
nine others, had previously
abused cats and dogs by set-
ting their tails on fire. Carroll


Edward Cole, executed for
five of the 35 murders of
which he was accused, said
his first act of violence as a
child was to strangle a puppy.
Albert DeSalvo, the "Bos-
ton Strangler," trapped dogs
and cats in orange crates and
shot them with arrows in his
youth. In fact, most serial
killers have a history of tortur-
ing and killing animals, in-
cluding "Son of Sam" David
Berkowitz, Ted Bundy and
Jeffrey Dahmer. All of the kids
involved in the deadly shoot-
ings at Columbine and other
schools first "practiced" on
animals.
Violence toward animals
must be taken seriously in
order to prevent it from esca-
lating. For more information,

MARTIN from page 15A


While that redevelopment
was not required by the
approval the planning com-
mission gave for the height
exception, Miller has, in fact,
purchased several neighbor-
ing properties for redevelop-
ment purposes. Other prop-
erty owners have not agreed
to sell. Still, even these advo-
cates admit the tall buildings
have changed the aesthetics
of the northern entrance to
the city and not for the better.
In a conversation with Mil-
ler some months ago, he ex-
pressed appreciation for this
view and the feeling that per-
haps the project could have
been more attractive and still
successful at some lower
height. .
The building proposed for
the heart of downtown an
area City Manager Marty
Black has called "critical,"
while expressing his disap-
pdintment that more citizens
did not take part in the plan-
ning commission process -
does not need to be 44 feet


high< ,
City planners want to
encourage residential units
downtown, so it is anticipated
that a number of buildings
will add apartments or con-
dominiums on a second or
even third floor. That will, of
course, change the scale and
to some extent, the small-
town feeling citizens wish to
preserve.
City Planning Director
Tom Slaughter reports that he
fears denying an exception
might lead to a 35-foot-tall
building (the maximum al-
lowable height) built in a kind
of block shape, rather than
employing design setbacks as
the current proposal does.
The owners plan to sell two
condominiums on the sec-
ond floor and live in a third
living area above-that, using
the third and a fourth floor, if
the exception stands. My
guess is that some patios or
other setbacks would emerge
in a building of allowable
height or less, because -it


would be more attractive for
marketing reasons. I am sure
the owners also wish to have
an attractive building for their
home and would not prefer a
concrete box.
As Black pointed out, it
might have been helpful had
more citizens spoken at the
planning commission meet-
ing, although Peter Macdon-
ald did raise objections for
the commission to consider.
Many more citizens have spo-
ken out, in principle, at the
Envision Venice meetings,
affirming their interest in pre-
serving the nature of the city,
its scale and its small-town
feeling. Forty-four feet seems
inconsistent with that view.

federal executive under two
Republican and two -
Democratic presidents. He

cation, business and govern-
ment. He can be contacted at:

BY BARRY MILLMAN
STAFF WRITER

State Rep. Michael Grant has
filed a bill for consideration
during the upcoming legisla-
tive session that would amend
the so-called "125 percent" rule
governing reconstruction of
hurricane-damaged homes
that could help homeowners
avoid paying thousands of dol-
lars in higher taxes.
The bill provides an excep-
tion to current law requiring
homestead-exempted prop-
erties to be reassessed at full
market value, if the repon-
struction value of the home
exceeds 125 percent of its
most recent assessed value.
The exception, which
would apply to all Florida
homes undergoing repairs for
damage sustained by any of
the four named hurricanes
striking Florida, allows home-
owners to avoid the reassess-
ment requirement as long as
the square footage of the re-
built home is not increased by
more than 10 percent or re-
pairs are not completed with-
in 24 months after being
damaged.

rocketing statewide in the
past year, many storm-struck
homeowners, who are trying
to rebuild their homes to pre-
existing dimensions, would
likely be unable to avoid the
costly reassessment.
With the added burdens of
higher costs for construction
due to shortages of materials
and labor, and the wide-
spread problem of low insur-
ance settlements, many
homeowners might not be
able to afford to rebuild at all.
"Nobody wants to see any-
one getting taxed out of their
homes," said Grant, R-Port
Charlotte, whose district in-
cludes parts of Charlotte, Lee
and Sarasota counties. "I'm
very concerned about commu-,
nities and community life.
Whatever we can do to get
homeowners back into their
communities, the better off
we'll be as taxpayers and as cit-
izens."

Gym owner arrested
The owner of Gold's Gym
left scores of members in the
lurch when he closed up
shop, a Florida Department of
Agriculture Law Enforcement
report shows.
Pierre A. Narath, 41, 1900
block S. 36th St., Cape Coral,
was arrested and charged
with failure to notify a change
of ownership or closure of a
health club.
The charge is a misde-
meanor.
According to the arrest re-
port, on July 23, 2004, an
investigation was started into
the abrupt closing of National
Fitness Clubs of Florida III,
doing business as Gold's Gym
of Venice.
Investigators got 203 com-
plaints from members who
paid in full for membership at
Gold's.
The investigation showed,
Narath as the owner of Gold's
and two other health studios
in Fort Myers and Cape Coral.
The, agriculture depart-
ment requires a $50,000 bond
for each studio. The bond is
used to reimburse members
in the event the gym closes.
The bank's line of credit for
the bond expired March 19,
2004.
On March 26, Narath
ordered his operations man-
ager to go up to& Gold's in
Venice and close the business.
She notified employees on
March 30 that the business
was closed, effective immedi-
ately.
No customers got refunds
after the closure.
Narath failed to notify the
Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services 30
days prior to closing as re-
quired. Additionally, Gold's
continued to sign up new
members up to and including
the day of closure.
Mouth problems
A woman could not stop
running her mouth even after
being handcuffed and taken
to jail, a Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office report shows.
Becky L. Boyce, 49, 1900
block Marbeth St., Sarasota,
was arrested and charged
with resisting arrest with vio-
lence, and battery on a law
enforcement officer two
counts.
The incident happened in
the 700 block South Tamiami
Trail, Osprey, at 10 p.m., Feb.
5.
According to the police re-
port, a deputy went to see a
cab driver who said Boyce,
refused to pay for the ride.
Boyce was sitting at the bar,
having a drink when the.
deputy tried to talk to her. She


asked her to step outside.
Boyce refused.
The officer asked her again.
She refused again.
The deputy asked a third
time.
She threw her cigarette on
the bar but would not go out-
side.
The deputy started to es-
cort her out. She turned and
said, "I will lay you out."
Boyce tried to pull away
from the deputy and cursed at
her at least three times.
Bartenders helped the offi-
cer lead Boyce outside.
Other deputies arrived.
Boyce kicked one in the leg
when he tried to put her into
the patrol car.
Officers finally got .Boyce
into the back of the car.
"I am friends with many
judges, you will be sorry," she
screamed. She mentioned
two judges by name.
When she got to the jail,
Boyce refused to change into.
jail clothes and cursed at the
jailers.
She continued kicking and
screaming while being book-
ed.
Target practice

A convicted felon was
caught with a small arsenal in

cealed weapon (10-inch Bow--
ie knife), possession of a con-

A deputy heard shots being

He saw Munn's truck in the

STORY BY PEGGI CONLIN-PAQUETTE HOMEROOM EDITOR
T enice Gondolier Sun writer Peggi
\\ Conlin-Paquette has lost more
than 100 pounds since her gastric
bypass surgery last summer. In
the second phase of her weight-reduction
program, she has begun an exercise
routine.


Now that my gastric by-
pass surgery is behind me, it
is time to take the second step
toward better health join a
gym.
In the past I avoided gyms
at all cost.
I did not to want to see
myself reflected in the wall-
to-wall mirrors there. I did not
want to feel inadequate by
judging myself by those in the
gym who obviously have
spent a lot of time there. I did
not want to work out side by
side with men (no offense
guys, but you are intimidat-
ing).
That was then.
It is a new day and with
that I needed a new attitude.
After all, this was my new life I
was starting. I visited
Southside Gym just to see
what it was like. When I ini--
tially walked in, I had no
intention of joining.
I was met by a delightful
young man, Scott Judkins,
who, it turned out.. went to
.high school with. tmy ,son
Meeting him there, I not only
felt out of shape, but old as
well. He took me all through
the complex. I was immedi-
ately impressed with the lay-
out and how clean it was. In
some gyms, it smells like a
gym, if you know what I
mean. Not this place. The one
thing that really sold me was
the pool area. It was beautiful.
Southside has a pool, hot tub,
sauna and steam room. It was,
very clean and did not have
the overwhelming smell of
chlorine that so many other
places have.
Since I was very interested
in water exercises, my guide
told me that there are water
exercises designed for every
level of fitness, and that they
are offered every day at vari-'
ous times of the day.
What started out as an in-
formational trip, ended up
with me joining Southside
that day.
A life change was needed
so I joined for two years. This
is something that I will need
to do for the rest of my life, so


I took the plunge and soon
would be plunging into
Southside's pool.
All ihe equipment was new
to me. I had never used any of
it ever.
To learn what to do. I de-
cided to hire a personal train-
er. For six weeks, Jeanne
Radiick showed me how to
use each of the machines and
most important, how to make
the most use of my time.
The first week was pretty
daunting. Jeanne had me on
the exercise bike, the tread-
mill, doing stretches, using
machines that I could only
imagine were originally
designed for use in a torture
dungeon. But as the weeks
went on, it became easier. My
five minutes on the treadmill,
that seems like an eternity, is
now up to 15 minutes, done,
easily. Five minutes on the
bike is now .up to 15 and on
the dreaded elliptical ma-
chine, I am able to do 10 min-
utes. :' .
That may D t.st'em like-
much, but prior to6 having
gastric bypass surgery, I was
unable to walk across a room
without panting for breath.
I have tried to visit the gym
at least four times a week. On
the days I do not go into the
gym, I walk a mile and a half.
Exercise has now become a
part of my daily routine. With
Southside opening early, I
have even found myself get-
ting up and working out at
5:30 a.m. Quite a change from
my previous life.
Southside has something-
for everyone. There' are nu-
merous classes offered all day
and evening. Want a tan? You
can tan there as well.
, They even have a juice bar
where you can get some
healthy refreshments. I have
found that after working out I
like to have one of their berry
drinks, made with protein as
a substitute for a meal.
I am now more than five
and a half months from sur-
gery. I have never felt better. I:
think I look better. I know my
attitude about life is better. I


SUI J PHOTC, B.6 JEFF TI \ iF.E .3 -re...i. egord i r corn
Peggi Conlin-Paquette finds another way to pump iron at the Southside Athletic Club.


am down more than 100
pounds. That is a personal
milestone for me. I can actu-
ally shop for clothes in Wal-
M fart now.
I have discovered shop-
ping. Before it vwas a chore to
find clothes that fit and a store
-that sold clothes big enough
for me. Now! can go in to any
store and find something.
Shopping may become my
new addiction.
Some people go through
an epiphany and become
born again. I became born
again on July 30 when I had
my surgery. Since then my life
has changed 100 percent for
the better. Being able to work
out at Southside Gym has
given me an oppornumity to
push myself to become better
and healthier. I don't mind
seeing myself in the mirrors. I
don't judge myself by others.
And I am not intimidated by
working out next to a guy.
After all, it is my gym, too.
I have been given a second
chance in life, and I have
decided that this time I am
going to live life to the fullest
and be the healthiest and
happiest person I can be. The
best is yet to come.

lin-Paquette at: ppaquette

Epiphany Cathedral School celebrating Catholic Schools Week


BY CHRIS COVIELLO
SCHOOL CORRESPONDENT

Faith in Every Student:
Catholic Schools is the theme
of Catholic School's Week
2005. This theme underscores
two guiding principles of
Catholic education. The fact
that faith is an important
value at the foundation of a
Catholic school curriculum
and that Catholic schools
have faith that every student
can achieve.
At Epiphany Cathedral
School it has been a tradition
to celebrate how fortunate we
are to provide our students
with a quality and faith-based
education. This celebration
includes a multitude of
Catholic School's Week activi-
ties for our students and fam-
ilies.
The week started with an
open house and family pic-
nic. Throughout last week a
variety of activities were
planned including a movie'
day, a hot-dog barbecue pre-
pared by our very own princi-
pal Dewayne Byrnes and a
Buddy Day with mixed class
activities.
Parents benefitted from a

wonderful presentation from
parenting speaker Sebastian.
Liseo on Thursday evening
and the celebration continu-
ed with a finale spaghetti din-
ner and student talent show
on Saturday evening.
Since this year's theme was
Faith in Every Student, we
asked students what Epiph-
any Cathedral School means
to them.
Here is what they had to say:
"We get to learn and talk


about our faith at school. We
learn not to be prejudice
against other religions and to
respect others. Our teachers
are always willing to help. We
learn never to give up and to
always trust in God." Katie
Quintero, grade six
"There are no cliques and
everyone gets along. Our
school is just the right size -
enough kids, but not' too
many. I like going to church
on Fridays" Nick Hertel,


Avoiding homework battles


grade six
"I enjoy the higher
grading standards at
Epiphany. We are
pushed a bit to excel
and our teachers are
nice and prepare us
well for tests. All the
subjects are faith
based and incorpo-
rate our religion. I
also enjoy the tradi-
tions we have; such as
the Christmas play,
stations of the cross
and weekly Mass." -
Caroline Schwaner,
grade seven
"I like the small-
school atmosphere.
We reallyget to know Learnir
each other because Katie C
most of us have been
together and friends since
kindergarten." Emily
Huffman, grade seven
"The teachers give us a lot
of one on one time. I like that
every Wednesday in Religion
we have a discussion about
things that are happening in
our world and in our lives. I
also like that our school is
small and everyone is friends
in one group." Kyela Faett,
grade eight
"I find faith in school
through Religion classes and
when we attend our weekly
school Mass." Drew Ober-
meier, grade eight.

ng about their faith and a small school atmosphere are what
Quintero and Nick Hertel like about Epiphany Cathedral School.

School.


STAFF REPORT


Is homework a battle each
night? Do you spend endless
hours helping your elemen-
tary or middle school child
with homework? If your child
has learning or attention
problems, it's likely you and
your child have .faced such
c h a llen g e s,.
SchwabLearning.org asked
Diana BrowningWright, MA.,
school psychologist and par-
ent, to share her perspective
and strategies for managing
assignments effectively -
which can be of great help to
you and your child.
Getting started
Start by making sure your
child understands what the
assignment is and the direc-
tions for completing it. Next,
find out if she has learned
enough at school to do the.
assignment on her own. If
your child has problems in
either of these areas, schedule
a conference with her teacher
to develop a home-school
communication system. One
example would be an assign-
ment sheet that the teacher
reviews with the child and
sends home for the parent to
read and sign off on.
Where is it done?
For some kids, a small desk
where supplies can be stored
is the best place to do home-
work. In other homes, the
kitchen table may be the best
place. Wherever your child
works, you should be able to


check to see if she's sticking to
the task, especially if she has
problems with concentration,
and be able to offer encour-
agement.
When is the best time?
For some kids, right after
school is the perfect time to
do the work because the
assignment is fresh in their
minds. Others need a break
before they can tackle more
school work.
Sometimes team sports, a
parent's work schedule, or
other activities interfere with
doing homework immediate-
ly after school. With your
child's input, you may need to
develop two plans: one for
the usual day and one for
unusual events. When you
agree on the plans, write
them down.
How much time
should it take?
If your child has problems
focusing on a task, writes
slowly, or needs more time to
understand concepts, home-
work can take a lot longer. No
wonder she protests, tries to
delay, hides the work, or
doesn't turn it in at school.
Sometimes just your sympa-
thy can help.
Be sure the amount of time
she's expected to work at
home is appropriate for her
age. Learn about your
school's homework policy for
each grade level.
By keeping track of how
long it really takes your child
to do her homework, you'll


have specific information to
share with her teachers. If the
amount of time exceeds the
school's homework policy,
meet with her teacher to dis-
cuss what accommodations
might be made.
Advice about homework
Encourage your child to
talk to you about what she
finds hard or confusing.
Listen to her ideas on what
would make homework easi-
er.
Help your child learn
effective study strategies, as is
appropriate for her age.
If assignments seem end-
less, break them into smaller
parts.
Let her choose a pleasur-
able activity she can do
immediately following home-
work, e.g., talking to a friend
on the phone. Make sure the
activity is one she's chosen so
it motivates her to finish the
work.

Identifying learning challenges


LYNN REIFERT
CORRESPONDENT


test that the poor behavior is
most likely due to the type of
work he is being asked to do.
"He's bored because the work
is too easy."
Others may suspect their
child has a learning disability,
and that the teacher may be
expecting him to pay atten-
tion, follow directions, and
stay focused when he isn't
capable. Some of these par-
ents may decide to ask the
school or a private psycholo-
gist to test their child.
In fact, the teacher herself
may be attempting to deter-
mine whether the child's per-
formance is related to some-
thing behavioral, neurologi-
cal, or developmental.
Questions
Is it behavioral? Is his prob-
lem because he wasn't taught
by his parents to be patient
and wait his turn? Have they
not required him to attempt
to do things on his own, with-
out them hovering over him?
Is he so used to having all the
attention at home that he isn't
able to proceed without it at
school?
Is it neurological? Does he
have a learning disability that
requires special instructional
methods, and possibly med-
ication?
Is it developmental? Did he
start school before he was
physically, mentally and
emotionally ready?
Teacher assessment
What teachers do know for
certain is that when a child
requires lots of her attention,
due to not following direc-
tions and not being able to
work independently, that
child is functioning at a seri-
ous disadvantage.
The first, most important
thing that needs to happen
for learning to take place is to
get the child's behavior under
control, regardless of the
cause.
To do this the teacher must
have the cooperation of the
parents. Parents who choose
to spend time supporting
excuses for their child's be-
havior, i.e., saying he's bored
or may have a learning dis-
ability, are wasting precious
learning time. They are harm-
ing- their child, rather than
helping him, by not dealing
immediately with the issue at
hand. They are also setting
themselves and their child up


Correction
Due to copy editor error,
this column was cut short in
last weeks Our Town section.
It is being rerun in its entirity
this week. the Venice Gondo-
lier Sun regrets the error.
Do you have questions
relating to your child's educa-
tion? Do you want to voice an
opinion about what's hap-
pening in our schools? This
column is focused on answer-
ing common questions and
sharing views on education.
Many parents share their
own personal testimony.
Here's a recent account of a
parent that wants to know
how to handle student learn-
ing:
My child is not doing well
in school. He has been getting
into trouble with his teacher,
who says he does not follow
directions and cannot work
independently. She has sug-
gested that he may need to be
held back in school this year. I
am very frustrated with his
teacher, because I think his
behavior is related to his not
being challenged. He seems
very bright. Maybe he is just
bored, or perhaps he has a
learning disability and cannot
understand or remember
what the teacher is asking
him to do. How should I han-
dle this problem?
Solution?
Many parents think that if
their child appears to be
bright he is ready to begin
school, and will automatically
have a successful kinder-
garten experience. They are
shocked when they attend the
mid-year parent conference
and receive less than glowing
reports from a teacher.
Some parents immediately
blame the teacher for not giv-
ing the child more advanced,
stimulating work. They pro-

entering first stage


for a very difficult future.
Being "bored," or having a
learning disability is not a
good reason for poor behav-
ior in school. Most children
with learning disabilities can
be taught by their parents to
behave appropriately.
However, it may be more
difficult to teach this child to
have patience, not interrupt
others, listen, follow direc-
tions and focus for longer
periods of time. More re-
wards, i.e. praise for good be-
havior, and consequences for
not following rules, may be
needed.
In the process, parents
may learn much more about
the limits of their own pa-
tience. 'They will also learn
that their child's behavior can
improve, in time, with consis-
tent reminders of their high
expectations for him, and
adequate consequences for
not following rules in a timely
fashion.
Some children, due to a
neurological difference in the
way their brains function,
may require medication to
assist them in being able to
control their own behavior.
There is no blood test for
determining if a child has a
learning disability. Not even
doctors can determine if the
child really has a neurological
learning disability. The "diag-
nosis" is complex, based on
observation.
When parents have not put
enough effort toward teach-
ing children to do as they are
told, when they are told, it is
more difficult to know if the
lack of compliance to follow-
ing rules is due to a legitimate
disability, or a lack of enough
instruction.
When parents have tried
unsuccessfully to improve
their child's ability to learn, by
managing those behaviors
getting in the way of learning,
then they can reach out to
educators, psychologists and
pediatricians. These people
can assist with the difficult
decision to try medication.
Parents, who use a learning
disability as an excuse to
lower behavioral expecta-
tions for their child, are mak-
ing it extra hard for him to do
well in school. In reality, rais-
ing the behavioral expecta-
tions would better serve the
child. Since school may not

planned development.
If the DRC recommends
the plan, it would then pass
through the county's Plan-
ning and Zoning Board before
heading to the county com-
mission for approval. Then
Bay Development would sub-
mit a final site plan for DRC
review and go, through the
process again.
The item is on the DRC
agenda for the 2 p.m., Feb. 10
meeting at the County Ad-
ministration Building in Mur-
dock. The public can com-
ment on any item on the
agenda.
The proposed condos
would be mid-rise buildings
in the Florida Vernacular
style, with tin roofs and soft
colors, according to Juan
Pablo Bayona, the developer.
The 9,100-square-foot ball-


room could be used for
proms, graduations and other
community events.
Other amenities would
include marina access, a fit-
ness center, spa/beauty sa-
lon, clubhouse, playground,
tennis and volleyball courts
and a pool.
Bayona has said the pro-
ject will cost about $200 mil-
lion and will provide 200 jobs
during construction and 350
jobs year-round once the
hotel opens.
Already, the development
has drawn objections from
neighbors in the area, who
think the project is too large.
Some homeowner associa-
tions have said they would
oppose parts of the project.

Growing tropical vegetables in Florida


BY RENEE LEPERE
STAFF WRITER

Gene McAvoy said there
was a time he could almost
tell the ethnicity of a house-
hold by what crops were
growing in the vegetable gar-
den.
"I could pick out a Ja-
maican yard, a Puerto Rican
yard," he said. "Many of the
vegetables that do well in the
Caribbean also do well here."
McAvoy, regional veg-
etable/horticulture extension
agent for the Hendry County
Cooperative Extension Serv-
ce, was teaching Charlotte
County residents what veg-
etables ;from the Caribbean,
Africa and Asia are well-
adapted to Southwest Flor-
ida's climate.
The workshop was the
third in a series for the 12th
annual Landscape and Gar-
den Show sponsored by the
Charlotte County Extension
Services Master Gardeners.
Vegetables such as New
Zealand spinach, Chinese
mustard, hyacinth bean, jilo


and calabaza all are adapt-
able to Florida even
though Florida is not tropical.
"Florida is subtropical,"
McAvoy said. "We have great-
er temperature variations and
an occasional frost that trop-
ics don't have. We also have
changes in daylight more
than the tropics."
Like most gardens, one of
the most basic needs for
healthy vegetables is good
soil. The best pH is from 5.8 to
6.5. If the soil is too acidic,
lime with dolomite can be
added. If it is too alkaline,
micronutrients should be
added. Sulfur is to be added
only if the soil is overlimed,
McAvoy said.,. ... ,
And unlike Florida natives
and drought-tolerant plants,
vegetables are "heavy feed-
ers." They need a steady diet
of fertilizer and water.
"Don't use a fertilizer with
high levels of nitrogen early in
the crop," McAvoy said. "It
can interfere with the crop
set."
While the names of the
vegetables are unfamiliar -


Chaya, winged bean, ajidulce,
. chayote, boniato, coco yam
- some of the tastes are sim-
ilar to more common vegeta-
liles and have similar uses.
Jicama tastes like water chest-
nuts. Naranjilla takes like to-
matoes and citrus had a baby.
"Malabar spinach tastes
like spinach," McAvoy said.
"It's good in a stir fry."
Some of the vegetables like
Callaloo, tampala, hin choy-
all the same vegetable and
chaya need to be cooked.
"Chaya has small stinging
hairs, so use gloves when you
pick it," McAvoy said. "Plus, it
has a small amount of cya-
nide, so it has to be cooked
out."
Others have familiar
names such as the yam -
but have interesting proper-
ties.
"Found in certain areas of
Africa in which yams make
up a large part of their diet,
there are higher instances of
twins and triplets," McAvoy
said. "Just thought I'd let you

The most ambitious pro-
ject in Cape Haze's history is
about to take its first step into
the development review pro-
cess.
Bay Partners of Miami has
proposed The Winslow at Ba-
hia Limon, a large-scale de-
velopment at the Cape Haze
Marina that would include
260 condominium units, a
275-room hotel, a ball-
room/meeting room and
17,000 square feet of retail
and restaurant space and cost

Crushing Oprah's marathon time


J.J. Andrews
BACK OF THE PACK

Whether we go by the offi-
cial time, chip time or my
own wrist watch, it doesn't
matter.
I beat Oprah.
Just past 7 a.m. Sunday, the
sun was starting to come up
across Tampa Bay and my
mind was drifting as to what
my goal marathon time
should be. I had just passed
the 7-mile mark with an-
other 19 miles to go, and was
unsure about my running
pace.
And then I read the back
of a jogger's shirt in front of
me that said, "Beat Oprah:
4:29:30." Suddenly, I was
motivated as my mind re-
peated over and over, "You
can do that."
For those who do not
know, Oprah Winfrey is well-
known TV talk show host
whose mission is to empower
women and make men more
sensitive. Training and com-
pleting a marathon was one


of Oprah's projects, with a
personal best of 4 hours, 29
minutes and 30 seconds.
I crushed her time by 14
minutes. And it was even
more of a blow-out if I go by
my chip time, which mea-
sures actual start-to-finish
line times, at 4:13:57, or my
wrist watch at 4:11:55.
How's that for sensitive?
But really...
Bragging about running a
faster time than a middle-
aged female celebrity is not
the point. Any person with
enough courage to even at-
tempt the Gasparilla Mara-
thon in Tampa or, any
marathon or half-marathon
- is to be commended.
So a special congratula-
tions goes out to the six
marathoners and 16 half-
marathoners in our Venice
Gondolier Sun circulation
area who finished the race
Sunday. Some of you are shy,
so I won't mention you all by
name, but great job.
And as my girlfriend con-
tinues to reiterate, "It's in-
sane to get up at 3 a.m. to go:
run 26.2 miles." That's how
early I got up Sunday to make
it up to Tampa for a 6 a.m.
start time.
Wandering the darkened
streets of downtown Tampa
at 5 a.m. was soothing.
Hardly any cars on the
closed streets. Just myself
and more than 2,600 run-
ners out for the half or full


marathon.
I wonder what Tampa
residents were thinking as
thousands of people jogged
down their streets before
sunrise, steam rolling off
their bodies from the cool
temperatures. Other than
dim street lighting, all of us
were in darkness during the
race's first 75 minutes.
Thankfully, there didn't
appear to be many serious
injuries. I saw only a handful
of people driven off on golf
carts by first-aid crews be-
tween miles 17 and 23 -
often referred to "the wall"
by marathoners.
And despite hobbling
around Monday morning as
I write this column, wonder-
ing when that ugly blood
blister on my toe will pop,
my desire to run another
marathon is greater than it's
ever been.
I've gotten a taste for push-
ing my body to its physical
limits, and I believe it can be
pushed even farther. Who
knows how fast a marathon
I could run 4 hours, 3:45,
3:30 or even fast enough to
qualify for Boston?
Maybe I could even move
up from the Back of the Pack.

ly running column appearing

Q 1 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:
6Q987 (QJ108 OQJ 4Q95
The bidding has proceeded:
WEST NORTH EAST SOUTH
14 Dbl Pass ?
What do you bid now?
A This problem was originally posed
in "The BridgeWorld." While it is nor-
mally proper to respond to a takeout
double of a minor by jumping in a
major when you have 9-12 points, this
motley collection of quacks (queens
and jacks) does not qualify. These sec-
ondary honors are overvalued in the
point count so about 75 percent of the
0-odd expert panelists were content
to respond with one spade.
Q 2 Neither vulnerable, you hold:
698654 v6542 0K965 *Void
Partner opens the bidding with one no
trump. What do you respond?
A It would be nice if you ask for
majors with two clubs and partner
bids two spades or two hearts. But
what if partner bids two diamonds,
denying a major? Now two spades
by you would be invitational, and
you are not strong enough for that.
Bid two spades and be content with
reaching the second-best contract
should partner hold four hearts. If
you did not have a fifth spade, you
could bid a Stayman two clubs and
pass any response by partner.
Q 3 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:,
4Void vJ6 OKQ8653 4K10843
What is your opening bid?
A Our suggestion is do not bid,
pass. It is not an opening bid. This
hand has all the potential for a misfit.
We find that it is easier to handle
weak two-suiters, especially if your
suits are minors, by waiting to act
until after partner has a chance to bid.


Q 4 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:
6AQ3 v A73 07 41097632
Partner opens the bidding with one
diamond. What do you respond?
A We are not enamored of respon-
ders who bid six-card minor suits
missing all the top honors in response
to a one-diamond opening. If you
don't want to respond one no trump,
we would tolerate a waiting bid in
your cheaper three-card fragment.
Q 5 Neither vulnerable, you hold:
6KQ75 vA O>KQ75 4A865


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
14 Pass 1V
16 Pass 20
What do you bid now?


EAST
Pass
Pass


A What a pleasant surprise.
Partner's bid of the fourth suit is a
game force and says nothing about
his holding min the suit. So far you
have not shown anything more than
a minimum opening bid. It is time to
show your power. Start by bidding
three diamonds then should partner
bid three no trump, bid four dia-
monds to complete a description of
this hand while making a slam try.
Q 6 Both vulnerable, you hold:
4AQ109 v7 OAKQJ53 .AJ
Your right-hand opponent opens four
hearts. What action do you take?
A Start with a takeout double. If
partner bids five clubs, bid five dia-
monds to show a diamond-spade
two-suiter. Should partner respond
four spades, we would cue-bid five
hearts. After all, as little as five
spades to the king with partner could
make slam laydown.

13-year-old views American veterans as heroes


BY DON MOORE
SENIOR WRITER


When Sarah Fisher was 13
years old, two years ago, she
called her grandfather, Ron
La Court, in North Port
because her eighth-grade his-
tory teacher had given the
class an assignment to talk to
a veteran and write about it.
Her granddad served as a
medic with the 2nd Infantry
Division in Korea. He was
assigned to the 38th Field
Artillery Regiment from July
1952 until the armistice was
sighed in '53.
Ironically the veterans'
piece she was to turn in was
due Sept. 11, 2001.
"Sarah call me one evening
and we talked for half an hour


or more over the phone. She
asked me a lot of questions
about what I did in the
Korean War."
She and her family live in
Detroit, Mich. Sarah attends
Detroit Country Day School,
a private school.
"She sent me a copy of
what she wrote. After reading
your newspaper column I
thought it might be some-
thing that would interest
you," La Court said.
Sarah Fisher on
grandpas and heroes
."To me an American hero
is someone who has done a
heroic deed for our country.
An example of this would be
someone who has fought in a
war, or someone who has


helped the sick and needy.
There are my American hero-
es who remain unknown.
These are people who put
their owp:lives at risk for our
country 'and other Amer-
icans. Not because they want-
ed recognition or fame, but
because they felt it was the
right thing to do.
My Grandpa is one of the
many unknown heroes who
risk his life for our country.
My Grandpa went to war so
he could help others fight for
what he believed. I believe my
Grandpa is a hero because he
risked his life for our country.
I am thankful to the veterans
because they have made
American what it is today.
"My Grandfather was 21
years old when he was called


to the Army. He was an only
child who had to leave his
family and go halfway around
the world where he knew no
one. He said goodbye to his
family knowing there was a
chance that he may never see
them again. He went through
weeks of training to become a
field medic so he could help
soldiers who were sick or
wounded.
'"After this my Grandpa was
sent to Korea to fight in the
Korean War. The conditions
were harsh. He slept in either
tents or bunkers neither of
which was comfortable. He
worked 2 miles or less from
the front lines helping the
wounded and sick. ,
"I believe that my Grandpa
has the qualities of a hero


because he put his own life on
the line for others. He helped
soldiers who were sick or
wounded and several times
he sat with the soldiers who
were dying trying to comfort
them as much as possible.
Through my Grandpa wasn't
fighting on the battlefield, he
helped just as much as any
soldier. Without the medics
like my Grandpa many more
soldiers would of lost their
lives.
"I'm thankful for all the
veterans that have fought in
the wars because they have
made America what it is
today. Without the veterans,
life in America would be very
different. We may not have

will find the Seven Seas
Mariner's first-ever yoga
cruise on Feb. 24., a reward-
ing personal experience as
well as a luxurious one. The
seven-night' Western Carib-
bean voyage will be accom-
panied by a pair of renowned
yoga experts who will. lead
daily classes for guests of all
levels. Michael Lechonczak
and Robin Whitney Levine, a
NewYork-based husband and
wife team, will bring the art
and science of yoga to guests
of the 700-guest Seven Seas
mariner.
Their daily onboard pro-
gram will offer a variety of
options for men and women,
yoga beginners and experts of
all ages. Classes on medita-
tion and aromatherapy will
round out the mix.
The couple's teaching
approach weaves mindful-
ness, breath, alignment and
movement into a synergistic
whole. The result is balance: a
conscious, calm mind pre-


sent in a radiant, healthy
body.
The seven-night cruise will
sail roundtrip out of Fort
Lauderdale, with calls at
Grand Cayman, Cozumel
(with an onboard overnight)
and Key West (with an
onboard overnight). All
guests are accommodated in
suites, ranging in size from

Pet owners online dating service has many success stories


BY DR. MARTY BECKER
GUEST WRITER

On Valentine's Day 2004,
Melanie Taylor, a 38-year-old
single attorney from Arling-
ton, Va., heard about a singles
party taking place that after-
noon in nearby Washington,
D.C., and immediately
thought, "No way!" However,
upon further investigation,
she discovered that she could
bring, Mai Mai, her Mom's
Shih Tzu, because the party
was being hosted by Animal
Attraction.com a new online
dating service for pet lovers.
"No way!" quickly turned
into, "Hmm, maybe I can
meet some guys who LOVE
dogs instead of guys who ARE
dogs."
Now it's approaching
Valentine's 2005, and just like
last year, Melanie isn't quite
sure what she'll be doing for
Valentine's Day. However,
unlike last year, she knows
that she'll be spending it with
someone special.
At the Animal Attraction
.com party last year, Mai Mai
ran into Cuki, a 7-year-old
Rhodesian Ridgeback mix


who was attached to 33-year-
old single male, Ted Hooban.
Ted had posted a free per-
sonal profile on Animal
Attraction and heard about
the event through the site. "I
had corresponded with some
great people on the site and
figured the party would be a
great place to meet some cool
people in person," said
Hooban. While Mai Mai and
Cuki checked each other out,
so did Melanie and Ted.
"Ted's dog was so friendly
and playful, with this big
goofy grin, just like Ted! I
could tell (Ted) was a nice guy
by the way he handled his dog
and how Mai Mai responded
to him," said Melanie.
Ted replied, "I thought her
dog was cute, but she was
even cuter."
After dating for about nine
months, Melanie and Ted
recently moved in together,
couldn't be happier and are
looking forward to spending a
loving Valentine's Day to-
gether.
Deborah Wood, author of
"The Dog Lover's Guide to
Dating: Using Cold Noses to
Find Warm Hearts" (Howell


Book House, 2003), says that
Melanie's attraction to Ted
was predictable. "People can
see your gentle, warmer side
when you're with your dog,
which they don't necessarily
see in other social situations,"
she said.
People also perceive you as
a kinder, nicer person just
because you're with a dog,
Wood explained.
This type of success story
is exactly what Dan Cohen,
who has an master's degree in
business administration from
Kellogg Graduate School at
Northwestern University, en-
visioned when he founded
Animal Attraction.com.
About a year and a half
ago, Cohen stumbled across a
restaurant with a patio where
people, and dogs, were all
mixing and mingling. Cohen
recalls being struck by the
warmth and friendliness of
the environment and how
people were really connect-
ing through their shared love
for pets. That same week, he
was convinced by some
friends to try an online dating
service.
While initially very skepti-


cal, Cohen gradually warmed
up to the concept, but found
it hard to find a real connec-
tion with the masses of single
people on general dating
sites. Both Cohen's master's
degree in business adminis-
tration mind and single heart
wandered back to that patio,
with all those pet lovers
bonding so easily and he
thought, "Why not have a dat-
ing site for pet lovers?"
A sales and marketing pro-
fessional from the profession-
al sports industry (former
vice-president of sales for the
Washington Redskins,) Coh-
en gathered some market re-
search to confirm his gut on
the potential for a pet lover's
dating site.
What he learned aston-
ished him: 62 percent of all
U.S. households have pets
and there are nearly 40 mil-
lion single pet owners in the
U.S. and during the first half
of 2004, 16 percent of all
unique visitors to Web sites
visited Personals sites.
Personals/dating was the
largest online paid content
category with approximately
$450 million in 2004. Fur-


thermore, 32 percent of peo-
ple surveyed in the last six
months have met a friend or
dated someone through an
introduction on a personals
site.
Thousands of people all
across as the U.S., and many
other countries as well, have
joined Animal Attraction's
free service to find love, dates,
or even friendship with other
pet lovers and the site is grow-
ing exponentially thanks to
partnerships with large and
well respected organizations
such as HSUS, Petfinder.com
andVPI.
Wood isn't surprised by the
success of the Web site. She
even has a chapter in her
book about writing successful
ads for online or newspaper
classified.
Wood's very funny, but also
practical, book gives plenty of
useful hints.
One gem: Don't date any-
one who names his dog after
a weapon "Run, don't walk to
the nearest self-help book
section if you find yourself
attracted to a guy with
Dobermans named Smith
and Wesson," said Wood. Or,


it's cute for your dog to wear a
bandana, but human-dog
"mother-daughter" matching
outfits are over the top.
"The Dog Lover's Guide to
Dating" also includes com-
patibility quizzes, places to
meet single dog lovers, pick-
up lines, and ways to use your
dog to help end a bad date.
No doubt that we'll be
hearing more success stories
from Animal Attraction.com
and from people who read
books such as "The Dog Lov-
er's Guide to Dating" as pets
are surefire social lubricants,
conversation catalysts and
laugher generators sure to
attract pet loving partners.
. For attracting the ladies,
dogs even trump "Donald
Trump, The Cologne" this
Valentine's Day.

VETERANS from page 10B


many of the rights that we do
today. Veterans gave their
lives so that our country and
other countries would be a
better place to live.
"My Grandpa left every-
thing he knew to fight in the
Army. He was brave because
he. went to war even though
he knew he could have lost
his life. Not many people
know what my Grandpa or
other veterans went through
for the country, some of them
don't even like to talk about
their experiences because it
brings back painful memo-
ries. People see them walking
down the street and think
they are just any ordinary
man, but in reality they are


what made America."
Treasure trove
of sailor's letters
Recently I received a call
out of the blue from James
Brogan of Rotonda who
wanted to know if I would like
a bunch of old letters his
uncle, Don Youngblood, sent
his aunt, Florence, while serv-
ing as a U.S. Navy medical
corpsman in World War II.
"I have all these old letters
my Uncle Don wrote my Aunt
Flornence during the war," he
explained. "I'm moving and I
don't know what to do with
them. I'd like to find a home
for them with someone who
would appreciate them. If


not, I'm going to throw them
out."
I told Jim I'd be right over. I
asked him if the man's family
didn't want the letters. He
explained that the couple had
no family and he was the last
living relative who was close
to the old sailor.
When I got over to Brogan's
home, I found the letters all,
piled up on the dining room
table with lots of odds and
ends of other stuff post-
cards and Easter, Christmas
and Valentine greeting cards
Youngblood had sent his wife.
I told Brogan I would take the
letters and try and do some-
thing with them. Eventually I
figured I would contact the


Smithsonian Museum in
Washington and see if it
would want them to include
in their Veterans Oral History
Project.
I took the letters home in
a cardboard box. Over the
weekend I spent a couple of
hours sorting them by dates.
There were 461 letters in my
;trove that cover the period
from April 14, 1944, until
war's end and beyond.
It has been said by others
far wiser than I that you never
know a man until you stand
in his shoes and walk around.
By Monday afternoon I
had read the first 39 letters
and wrote a synopsis of each
letter as I read along. I felt like


I was beginning to know Sea-
man 2nd Class Donald David
Youngblood, U.S. Navy, and
his wife Florence Youngblood
of Detroit, Mich.
I felt like an intruder in a
time warp. It was like some-
thing out of H.G. Wells' novel
"The Time Machine" reading
dozens of these 60-year-old
letters from a sailor to his
wife.
What I realized immedi-
ately when I opened his very,
first letter dated April 14, was
that Youngblood's penman-
ship was incredibly fine. He
wrote primarily with a foun-
tain pen on unlined sta-
tionery. The formation of his
letters was absolutely perfect.


Looking at the entire hand-
written page the lines of
script were incredibly perfect
line after line. It was a work of
art.
It became apparent after a
few letters that he loved his
wife very much. He would
refer to her at the beginning
of each letter, usually written
on small stationery as "Lo
Honey," "Darling Lo," "Lo
Sweetheart" or simply. "Lo
Honey."
Youngblood spent lots of
time telling her how much he
missed her and how he was
trying to obtain an "Out-of-
Bounds Pass" so he could visit

her on his next liberty. During
this period he was stationed
at the Great Lakes Naval
Training Station, near
Chicago, for boot camp. After
boot he remained at Great
Lakes for Medical Corpsman
School.
Near the conclusion of his
medical training to be a
corpsman, disaster struck.
"Got a little bit of bad news
sweetheart. There is a story
going around that they are
going to move this school to
California," he wrote Florence
on June 13, 1944. "But I
understand this story has
been around for some time,
so it may be just a bunch of
bunk."
It wasn't. Youngblood and
the rest of the men in Class 46
at Great Lakes got word they
were all to be transferred to a
Navy station at Sari Diago,


Calif., a few days later.
Between his schooling and
the day-to-day life of a sailor
in training during the Second
World War this swabbie pours
out his troubles in having to
deal with Navy life to his wife
back home.
To begin with he finds out
he's the second oldest guy in
his training battalion. Young-
blood is in his late 30s and
most of his fellow sailors are
teenagers or in their early 20s.
Apparently, because, of his
age, he's made the company
clerk.
This means he has to work
twice as hard as the rest of the
recruits, he says. Youngblood
has to perform the same
duties as the younger men
and then he has his clerical
chores.
He's a chow hound who
likes a soft bunk.


After getting out of boot
camp and being assigned to
medal corpsman training at
Great Lakes, Youngblood
writes Florence, "One thing I
do know is that we have very
nice beds and the chow, so
far, is much better than I ever
had around here before. Of
course, they claim you do get
the *best in the Hospital
Corps."
He finds his medical stud-
ies are demanding.
"By the amount of things
we have to study I would say
they are trying to make doc-
tors or undertakers out of us,"
he writes. "This school
wouldn't 'be bad if you got
something when you fin-
ished. But the most you can
get is Petty Officer 3rd Class.
And to get that you have to
have a 95 percent or better in
your grades. So you see it's


pretty rough going."
I plan to read all 461 of
Youngblood's letters to Flor-
ence.
From time to time I'll
report back to you on what I
learn about life in the service
and on the home front during
World War II from a sailor's
letters written to his love
back home.

more motivation and better
behavior to succeed.
Children need help from
their parents, in the form of
structure and enforcement of
high behavioral expectations,
to develop self-control. A
child who behaves well. in
school will receive more posi-
tive attention and help from
teachers and other students.
Self-control and positive
attention from others con-
tribute to their feelings of self-
worth, as well as their educa-
tional progress.
Children need to believe
that adults are united in their

teachers can improve chil-
dren's chances for success
and happiness by working
together and supporting one
another toward the same goal
- helping children be the


best they can be.

Venice

Symphony

bridges the gap

Venice Symphony conduc-
tor, John Wesley Schumacher
always finds a way to make
each concert new and cre-
ative. The recent pops concert
bridged the 30 year gap from
when the Venice Symphony
began in 1975 to the present.
Several selections Wes
chose for the evening were
played on that first concert in
1975. Maestro Schumacher
introduced Joyce Hoefer who
was the concertmaster 30
years ago. Her daughter Karen
Bell, Dick Thierry and Ruth
Jeffery also played with the
orchestra back then.
Selections from "My Fair
Lady" and "The Music Man"
were played in 1975. It was
startling to think these
favorites are more than 30
years old and are still popular
favorites.
The concert received sever-
al enthusiastic shouts from
the audience and a standing
ovation.
Leslie Ann Jones, Beth
Morrison, Robert Moore and
Joe Martinez were featured in
several numbers. Members of
the orchestra wowed the audi-
ence with their choral reading
to introduce the selections
from "The Music Man."
The rich sounds of the
instruments, Wes Schumach-
er's anecdotal and the nice
selection of music created a
perfect evening. Bravo to the
Venice Symphony
The next concert is sched-
uled for Feb 25. Call 488-1010
for tickets and information.
Mark March 5th on your
calendar as the Venice
Symphony presents their spe-
cial gift to the community. A
free outdoor concert will be
performed at Blalock Park, 300
South Nassau Street in Venice.
Everyone is encouraged to
bring picnic blankets, baskets
and chairs. The concert is
irom 4 to 5:15 p.m.

The Friends of the Venice
Symphony held a nice break-
fast and string concert at
Park Place Retirement
Center in Venice. Chairman
Art and Janet Schotz deserve
three cheers for a nice
event.
The continental breakfast
included muffins and fruit.
Music by Romanza Strings
provided the perfect morning
entertainment. Musicians
Diane Soloman, Paul Irene
and Lucia Barrett perform at
many functions in town and
are among the favorites.
Tickets are selling fast for
the Midiri Brothers Jazz
Concerts on Mar 11 at 7 p.m.
and Mar 12 at 2 p.m. These
concerts are usually sold out
so contact Melba Ferrec at
941-488-8916 for tickets.
Bud Leeds and Friends will
also perform at the "Jazz
Affair."

The special person of this
week is Ruth Jeffery. This nice
lady celebrated her 90th birth-
day recently and continues to
play the cello in each concert
with the Venice Symphony.
She attributes her success to
being blessed with good
health.
Ruth's vitality makes every-
one who knows her admire
her enthusiastic spirit. Many
members of the symphony
ohen tell me how much they
