State environmental authorities will contribute
$75,000 to the Venice Inlet study. The consultant's
final report will be submitted long before the


county's study is complete

BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

Some Sarasota County
officials are worried that a
$150,000 Venice Inlet man-.
agement study could some-
how either conflict with, or
duplicate, their efforts to pro-
duce a long-term manage-
ment plan for the Big Pass
and New Pass coastal tulets.
The Venice Inlet study is
being sponsored by die West
Coast Inlet Navigation Dis-
trict and partially financed
with a $75,000 grant from the
Florida Department of En-
\ironmental Protection's Di-
vision of Beaches and Shores.
It should be completed in six
to nine months.
"I just received state notice
that the work has been ap-
proved and can start," said,
Navigation District Executive
Director Chuck Listowski;. 'A
Naples firm will provide us


ed.

with a working model of the
Venice Inlet so we can better
understand how it functions
and make decisions."
The Venice Inlet is protect-
ed by rock jetties that cause
erosion on Venice Beach to
the south. Sand also shoals in
the throat and causes'naviga-
tion problems.
"We need to know how
better to manage our sand
sources," Listowski explained.
Data from Big Pass, New
Pass and Longboat Pass Will
be gathered by the navigation
district's consultant to pro-
duce a computer model show-
ing how currents, ddes, winds
and other natural forces affect
areas hi and around the Venice
Inlet.
Duplication?
1On Feb. 9, Sarasota County
Commissioner Nora
Panerson a voting member
on the navigation district's


board of directors reported
that she had voted against the
Venice Inlet study because it
"seemed .pre-
mature", and
could dupli-
cate the Big
Pass and New
Pass studt
"The navi-
gationdistrict
may have
done foolish
thing," she Patterson'
Said. "I was
ouevoted 3-1 and would like
our staff to be at: the next
meeting. They should report
on what the county is doing
with Big Pass and New Pass.
There are too many cooks in`
thestew."
S But :commissioner Jon
Thaxton saw d an opportunity.
in the Venice InHet study.
"This is a chance to coin-
bine our resources and have
studies that compliment each
other," he said. "We could
have, two of three times as
itmuch data, but run the risk of
two studies that conflict."
S Listowski said he will wait
to hear from country officials
before giving a green light to


the Venice Inlet study.
"'Perhaps when the county
puts together a scope of ser-
vices for its
consultantt"
he said, "we
can see if it
coincides
with ours."
Taking
a pass
The county
Thaxton commission
recently en-
dorsed a long-term manage-
ment plan for both Big Pass
and New Pass that would shift
some of the maintenance
responsibilities away from
the federal government and
require more of a cost-shar-
ing partnership with the state.
New Pass, which separates
Longboat Key from Lido Key,
is currently a federally desig-
nated channel. But the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers has
announced budget cutbacks"-
will probably result in it being
removed from the eligibility
list for maintenance dredging
projects..

STAFF REPORT


The Southwest Florida
Chapter of the American Red
Cross has a mission of help-
ing the community to pre-


vent, prepare for and respond
to disasters.
Last August aind Septem-
ber, the local chapter's ability
to can- out, its mission was
put to the ultimate test as four
hurricanes crossed the state
in a six-week period. Hur-
ricane Charley ripped
through Charlotte and De-
Soto counties on Aug. 13,
leaving a trail of damage and
destruction the likes of which
this area hadn't seen in more
than 40 years.

One of the primary re-

Cross chapter, one bf 21 in
Florida, is to provide immedi-

in the event disaster strikes
locally. To that end, the local
chapter worked closely with
Sarasota County's emergency
operations component, the
school board and a variety of
local government agencies
and nonprofit organizations,
to effectively respond to the
needs of those affected by the


hurricanes.
During the four storms,
nearly 10,000 people took
refuge in Sarasota and De-
Soto counties' shelters. Half
of those were for Hurricane
Charley.
"The process of protecting
,people in shelters was one of
terrific collaboration between

No more overlooking



the Myakka River


Boat fire at Gulf Wind Marina


More than half of the watershed of the "wild and
scenic" river one of only two in the state lies
in Sarasota County. Much of it has been acquired
by the county to protect it from development.


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


An early 20th century book
described the Myakka River as
an overlooked river.
That wasn't the case Mon-
day, as approximately 80 plan-
ners, water engineers, scien-
tists and residents who have
dealt with the river gathered at
the Punta Gorda campus of
Edison College.
The initial session of a four-
day conference organized by
the Charlotte Harbor National
Estuary Program allowed the
engineers, scientists and plan-
ners to share information
with one another so all would
have a common understand-
ing of the river.
"We all come in with differ-

ent points of view and knowl-
edge," said Julie Morris, presi-
dent of the Myakka River
Conservancy, a group dedicat-
ed to preserving the river.
"This is not about future
plans, but what we know


about the river now and what
our common knowledge is."
Maran Brainard Hilgen-
dorf, CHNEP's communica-
tions manager, said the group
decided to include a day-long
focus on the Myakka River in
response to concerns of the
Myakka Rivet Coordinating
Council about the river serv-
ing as a public water-supply
source.
Three counties,
three rivers
The differences in ap-
proaches to the MyakkaRiver
watershed quickly became
apparent, as representatives
of Manatee, Sarasota and
Charlotte counties presented
the historical and current land
uses along the river basin.
With its headwaters in
southern Manatee County,
the Myakka River winds and
meanders for almost 60 miles
through three counties until
it flows into Charlotte Harbor
near El Jobean. Due to its
.pristine nature and scenic
qualities, the Florida Legis-
lature declared it a "Wild and
Scenic River" in 1985, one of
only two rivers,, in the state
with that designation.
According to Jack
Creighton, an official with the
Natural Resources Conserva-
tion Service of the U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture,
about 200,000 acres (54 per-
cent) of the Myakka River
watershed lies in Sarasota
County. A majority of the
remaining acreage (37 per-
cent or 140,000 acres, includ-
ing the headwaters is in


Manatee County, while Char-
lotte County has 40,000 acres
(9 percent) of the basin at its
mouth with Charlotte Harbor.
In Manatee County, agri-
culture and mining interests
dominate the landscape,
while Sarasota County, which
has not seen much develop-
ment along the basin, veered
toward protection. According
to Sarasota County Com-
missioner Shannon Staub, 85
percent of the land along the
river is under county protec-
tion through the environmen-
tally sensitive lands program.
Charlotte County, after his-
toric uses for cattle ranching
and turpentine operations,
saw its land fronting the river
changed to platted lots first"
by Myakka City (upriver from
Gulf Cove) in 1921, and later
by El Jobean founder Joel
Bean and General Develop-
ment Corp. Today, with the
exception of the southern tip
of the Cape Haze Peninsula
and the old Myakka City land
- which the county now
owns the land is devoted
to low-density residential de-
velopment.
GDC also carved the land
in Charlotte County and in
North Port with hundreds of
miles of canals, many of them
accessing the river, to further
its sales campaign.
Those canals, along with
the 60,000 platted lots in
North Port, continue to cause
problems for North Port, said
city utilities Director Cindi
Mick.
'Alterations'
Steve Suau, formerly the
manager of Sarasota County-,
Center for Watershed Man-
agement and now with Kimn-
ley H-lorn and Associates, told
the group that his studies of
the Ihistoric and current data

... .. ... ; ; );


show the need for four man-
agement plans to restore the
river, to its historic flows.
The data, Suau said,
showed that flows in the river
have increased in the dry sea-
son, averaging 24.5 million
gallons of water daily from
January through May, while
dropping in the wet season.
The reason, he said, is due to
13 manmade "alterations" --
dams, dikes and drainage
pipes, mainly in the upper
basin of which eight have
inci eased tlows to the river.
In South County, two dis-
tinctixe alterations Cow
Pen Slough and the Black-
burn Canal divert water
from the river and reduce dthe
,, i


flows.
Then -there's rainfall and
flooding.
Over the last decade, Suau
said, there have been more
spikes of three-day rainfall
incidents than there were in
the entire 50 preceding
years, and the Myakka River is
slow to recover from those
events. .
"It's very volume sensitive,"
Suau said. "It' more likely to
flood than others because of
the wetlands and the amount
of floodplains along the river.
The more natural the condi-
tions are, the longer the
recovery time, which isn't a
bad thing."
\,Wliile he said four, man-


agement plans were needed
-for the Flafford Swamp, the
Upper Myakka Lake, tdie mid-
dle river and the lower riv\er.-
Suau echoed Mlorris -i-
describing the purpose of dihe
conference. -
"This is all about whew
we're at and how we gpt
here," he said. .,
The. conference continues
through Thursday, beginning
at 9 a.m. and continuing until
late afternoon in the Stude
Aciitides Building at Edis
College, 26300-Airport Rog
Punta Gorda.

South County portables a sign of the times


Lack of space for new students leads
to school board approving buying
;4 additional units for next school year.


8Y GREG GILES
,STAFF WRITER

: The Sarasota County
School District will spend
another $2 million on port-
abte classrooms for the 2005-
06; school year following
approval at Tuesday night's
school board meeting.
SThe district will purchase
'48 units, piggy-backing on a
previous bid made by Su-
dwanee County School District
,to 'Mobile Modular Manage-
itnent Corp.
I The newly constructed
,units are destined for nine
Schools. In all, the district is
calling for 54 new portables
iext year to meet a county-
wide student growth rate of
4 percent, which has spiked
'in some areas to 20 percent.
In addition, 31 used portables
,will be moved from existing
locations to five schools.
The majority of schools
ib6eiving portables are in
South County. Cranberry
Eltmentdry will receive 10
new portables, while Glen-
alien Elementary and Pine

ning, in particular school
construction. But the state
requires districts to show
proof the kids are there in the
district first, before approving
a new school, explained


Earley.
The current portables
craze, said Earley, is being
driven by the class-size
amendment passed by vot-
ers in November 2002. It re-
quires districts to reduce
maximum class sizes by two
students each year until
they reach the optimum
goal of 18 pupils in grades K-
three, 22 pupils in grades
four-eight, and 25 pupils in
grades nine- 12.
The class-size amendment
accounts for the lions share
of new portable purchases,
Earley said.
"Cranberry Elementary is
a good example of how the
class size amendment is dri-
ving new portable purchas-


es," Earley said. Cranberry
was designed to house 970
students. Soon after the
school was built the class
reduction amendment pass-
ed. In the snap of a finger, the
school was allowed to house
only 720 students due to
square footage requirements.
"That meant 250 kids would
need a seat. Another 10 porta-
bles were needed. to house
them," Earley said.
"We're chasing this elusive
goal of reducing class size
with more .portable class-
rooms. It has become prob-
lematic with passage of the
class size amendment."

The new park at the
beach sparks debate on
how passive the use of
the old sewage plant
property will be.

BYJJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

One after another, resi-
dents shared their opinions
with a pair of citizen boards
about what the old sewage
plant at the beach will look
like once it's turned into a
park.
A mix of 255 paved parking
spots, a stage that could han-
dle small concerts and an out-
door movie screen wasn't
what they had in mind.
"When we were told there'd
be a passive park here, we
didrit envision a three-ring
circus with all these events
going on," said Sue Lang,
speaking on behalf of the
Venice Neighborhoods Co-
alition. "There are way too
many parking spots."
Lang and several other res-
idents urged the Venice Plan-
ning Commission on Tuesday
to keep the park as passive as
possible and not to disturb
the natural habitat.
Commission members
questioned how paved park-
ing, picnic shelters and an
open-air stage could be worse
for the natural habitat than
having an active sewage
plant. Most of the 255 parking
spots would go where the old
sludge drying beds are now.
"The thing we're sacrificing
here is a sewer plant," com-
mission member Benny
Weaver said. "We're not really
sacrificing anything."
The Venice Planning Com-
mission and the Parks and
Recreation Advisory Board,
which met Monday, both
approved the Tramonto Vista
Park master concept plan,
with only minor stipulations.
Now the plan will go to city
council, most likely in April,
for final approval.
Projected cost of the park is
$2.6 million. High-priced
items include the 255 parking
spots at $860,000, open-air
plaza at $514,000, and three
picnic pavilions at $416,000.
Plans are to have bath-
rooms at the north and south
ends, with the south restroom
serving Paw Park. A pair of
beach access points would be
added along with walking
trails and an observation
deck.
There was one thing every
person seemed to agree on -
the name has got to go.
City Manager Marty Black
picked out the name, which
means "twilight" in Italian.
The parks board suggested
one of the local newspapers
have a naming contest where


readers select one of four cho-
sen names.
"I do have to agree," chair
John Osmulski said. "We need
a different name."
San Lino
Mike Miller's site plans for
132 condominiums on what
was formerly known as the
Kunze Property garnered
praise and approval by com-
mission members Tuesday.
Site plans for San Lino
Condominiums and its 11,
three-story buildings on 20
acres at the southeastern cor-
ner of Auburn Road and East
Venice Avenue were approved
and sent on to city council.
Members complimented
the increased buffering,
about 40 feet, and landscap-
ing between the development
and East Venice Avenue. They
also were happy with the var-
ied footprints, meandering
sidewalks and multiple pock-


r

I


et parks.
The only real debate was
on when the traffic light at the
intersection of Auburn Road
and East Venice Avenue.
Miller's company, Waterford,
is putting up the money to
improve Auburn Road south
of Venice Avenue and pushing
to get the traffic light installed.
Slowing the project down
are the owners of the property
in the southwestern corner of
Auburn and Venice Avenue.
Sarasota County has been
negotiating to gain an extra 15
feet of right of way to align the
north and south portions of
Auburn Road.
"But the county is saying,
build (the road) either way,"
Miller told planning commis-
sion. "With or without the
right of way, build it."

INLET from page 1 A


Big Pass, which separates
Lido Key from Siesta Key, is
not a federally designated
channel. A large ebb tidal
shoal has grown in recent
years and threatened to close
off the navigation channel
many recreational boaters
use to reach the Gulf of Mex-
ico.
Last year, the shoal's con-
tinued growth persuaded U.S.
Coast Guard safety officials to
remove navigation makers
that have guided boaters in
and out of Sarasota Bay, and
forced the county to become
more directly involved in inlet
management issues.
Plan scrapped
A Big Pass/New Pass man-
agement plan could include
periodic spot dredging to
improve navigation and pro-'
vide replacement sand for


eroded beaches on Longboat,
Lido and Siesta keys. It would
also provide necessary data
for obtaining federal and
state permits.
Last year, University of
South Florida professors
Richard Davis and Ping Wang
conducted a reconnaissance
study of Big Pass for the coun-
ty. They suggested careful
shoal dredging could reverse
erosion on Siesta Key's north
end and provide sand for
other eroded beaches.
Davis concluded the build
up of sand in Big Pass had
resulted from shoreline de-
velopment, rock revetments
and seawalls on the north end
of Siesta Key that caused the
massive shoal to hook around
the island's north end and
erode northern tip beach
areas rather than protect
them.


The preliminary report at '
least partially contradicted'
arguments previously offered
by Siesta Key residents and
their consultants who have}:
historically opposed Big 'Pas'
shoal dredging because they
believe the shoal protects
their beaches.
In 1993, a Big Pass coastal
inlet management plan wa's
prepared for the county by a
consultant. It was scrapped'
when the county commission''
backed away from a contro- -
versial proposal to use thet"-
large ebb tidal shoal as a said
replacement source for erod- .;
edVenice area beaches. '

School employees get fingerprinted, again


They've all been printed before, but the state
didn't keep the records. The district will pay more
than $360,000 to take and maintain them this
time around.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


The first batch of 1,000
school employees has until
March 4 to get refingerprint-
ed at the Landings office. New
prints are required to meet a
new state mandate.
The school district already
conducts criminal back-
ground checks and finger-


prints all new school employ-
ees.
It wouldn't be a big deal,
but because the Florida De-
partment of Law Enforce-
ment had no reason to retain
the prints, it tossed them out
after the district conducted
initial background checks on
potential employees.
Now, the district will have
to do it again for all 5,500


school employees in Sarasota
County.
New .statutes passed last
legislative session require the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement to maintain an
electronic record of all school
employee fingerprints so that
every five years they can con-
duct a re-investigation with-
out taking prints again.
"The challenge is that until
July 1, 2004, FDLE did not,
maintain the prints we sent
them," said Scott Lempe, hu-
man resources executive di-
rector with the district.
"As a result, we're now re-
quired to refingerprint every


employee who was hired
prior to July 1, 2004. Statute
gives us five years to accom-
plish this task," Lempe said.
The bill
The district is conducting
the fingerprints by hire date.
A letter was sent Feb. 7 to the
first 250 employees, who were
hired between July 1965 and
June 1986. Letters will be sent
in groups of 250 throughout
March, April and May.
The district plans to finger-
print 1,000 school employees
each year for the next five
years to comply with the law.
Next year the plan is to


borrow a remote fingerprint
machine from law enforce-
ment, Lempe said.
"Once we get more mobile
technology," he said, "we will
physically go to the schools."
For this school year, em-
ployees are required to travel
to the Landings office where
the prints will be taken. The
process takes 15-30 minutes.
There is no cost to the em-
ployee for fingerprinting.
The Justice Department
bills the district $61 for each
set of prints, and a retention
fee of $5 for each for a total
cost of $363,000. That doesn't
include staff time to adminis-


ter the tests and substitutes
for teachers. There is an addi-
tional fee to complete the
background check every five
years.
If prints are taken during
the work day, employees
must have the approval of the
appropriate school adminis-
trator and complete the Cer-
'tificate of Absence (Tempor-
ary Duty Elsewhere) form,
Lempe said.
They can make the journey
during the week or on Satur-
days.

Senate report encourages electronic access to records


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


While a committee ap-
pointed by the Florida Su-
preme Court continues to
grapple with how to allow In-
ternet access to court records,
a Florida Senate report out-
lines ways to ensure contin-
ued citizen access to records
electronically.
"The use of computers and
the Internet to perform gov-
ernment services and to pro-
vide information are positive
developments that have the
potential to reduce the size of
government, to decrease
agency costs and to improve
service delivery by allowing
members of the public to
obtain government informa-
tion and services from home
24-hours a day," notes the
report.
But, the report also notes,'
as does the Supreme Court's
Committee on Privacy and
Court Records, that the right
to privacy and identity theft
are concerns.
According to the minutes
of the Supreme Court con m-
nittee, its members are con-
sidering a subscription-based
proposal: Only residents who
paid a fee-to the circuit court
clerk could view court records
electronically that had al-
ready been wiped clean of
confidential information.
-Anyone not having a sub-
scription would have to in-
spect the records at the court-
house.
Different approach
Senate staff, however, takes


Library ratings

one for the

books

BYWARREN RICHARDSON
SARAOTA COUNTYEDITOR

.Compared with other
libraries of similar size across
the; state, the Sarasota County
library system fared well in a
variety of measures.
According to the 2004 Li-
bran.' Directory with Statistics
published by the state Di-
%ision of Libraries, Sarasota
County ranked near the top in'
alleategories.
lis libraries were ranked
aniong counties with popula-
tioyis ranging between
100,000 and 750,000.
It's obvious from the statis-
tickthat residents think highly
of their libraries.
With, a population of
348,761, Sarasota ranked
highest in its group for resi-
dents who have library cards,
reporting that 86 percent of its.
residents, or 298,723 people,
hadf a library card.
With 2.40 books per per-
son; Sarasota ranked third in
book volumes per capital.
Sarasota reported having
835,455 volumes in its collec-
tiori.
:In its population range,
Sarasota spends $22.42 per
resident or a total of $7.8 mil-
lion to operate the library svs-
tem, eighth among the 28 li-
braries in its population range
Per person, Sarasota Coun-
ty residents also read more


a different approach in its rec-
ommendations to the com-
mittee.
Noting that Florida stat-
utes encourage the use of
electronic record keeping, the
report recommends that pri-


vacy and identity theft con-
cerns be handled by:
Requiring agencies to-
review information available
electronically and remove

tion.

"We're very proud of our

Historic effort
As .one of the community's
first responders, the chapter
also played a critical post-
storm role, assisting with
basic needs like food and
water. The local chapter also
provided initial disaster as-
sessment in DeSoto County.
Local volunteers were in-
volved in assuring that volun-
teer medical personnel were
in shelters and that volunteer
mental health counselors
were available to meet the
emotional needs of those af-
fected. :
The Southwest Florida
Chapter also worked closely
with the National American
Red Cross, securing donated
office space and warehousing
for what turned out to be the
largest response to a natural
disaster in the history of the
Red Cross.
Thousands would utilize
family service centers through-
out the state where they could
meet with caseworkers and if
eligible, they could receive
financial assistance that
would enable them to bridge
the gap 'between the storm
and state and federal assis-
tance. .
.Hundreds of new volun-
teers registered and assisted
the Southwest Florida Chap-
ter in shelter management,
logistics, communications,
disaster assessment, family
service and more.
The, Southwest Florida
Chapter of the American Red
Cross is at 2001 Cantu Court in
Sarasota, and provides pro-
grams and services for resi-
dents of Sarasota and DeSoto
counties. The Southwest Flor-

ed by contributions, including

HEIGHT from page 1A


Weaver put it, "35 is not the
number."
Members talked about
making that height 45 feet,
even though that would al-
most make the overlay height
district unneeded because
current zoning already ad-
dresses that.
The area in question is
along West Venice Avenue be-
tween the beach and Armada
Road. There are multiple zon-
ings with different height lim-
its already in place, so an
overlay district could super-
sede all of that and create a
height cap.
A couple of residents spoke
against the height restriction,
and about a half dozen urged
the planning commission to
endorse it and expand the
height district to other parts
of the island.


AIRPORTfrom page lA
"It was a big deal," Rastello
said. "It took us almost a year
to get it done. ... Definitely,
our loss is your gain."
Rastello offers all these
compliments despite Watts'
being asked to resign after
only a year on the job. At 47
years old, Watts has switched
jobs several times since leav-
ing in 2001 as executive direc-
tor of Charlotte County Air-
port Authority after 14 years
there.
Even the Charlotte County
job raised questions in his
final year when Watts was at
odds with airport board
members much like the
Titusville airport board.
Coming home
Watts explains away the
job changes and says the
Venice position is his chance
to come home. He is a 1975
graduate of Charlotte High
School, and plans to relocate
here with his fiancee. All three
of his sons are grown, with his
twin sons in their final year of
college and his oldest about
to graduate from flight


The discussion grew heat-
ed between Weaver and Sue
Lang of the Venice Neigh-
borhood Coalition. Weaver
accused Lang of doing noth-
ing more than "trying to make
this part of the political pro-
cess" and questioned the fact
she has only lived in Venice
for a short time.
He and Osumlski also
questioned her claim that the
"majority" of citizens want a
citywide ban on anything
above three stories.
"I don't appreciate you try-
ing to intimidate me," Lang
said to Weaver as Osmulski
tried to maintain order.
Decision time
All five members instruct-
ed Planning and Zoning
Director Tom Slaughter to
draw up the new conditional-
use ordinance and to delay
work on the overlay height


school.
And following some public
and political controversy,
Watts understands what is
expected of him in Venice.
'"Airpofts are, in my opin-
ion, hot potatoes in a com-
munity," Watts said. "It's just a
question of how hot it gets,
whether it's noise issues or.
neighborhood issues or what.
... My job is to make the city
council and Mr. Black look as
good as possible by operating
as absolutely safe an airport;
as possible and as customer-
friendly and community-
friendly airport as possible."
Neither Watts or Rastello
would go into details about
the Titusville resignation,
only saying the airport board
and Watts had differing views
of future development of the
three airports Watts was in
charge of.
Money was a big issue
because the airports still were
being subsidized by taxpayer
money even though board
members kept claiming they
wanted to stop the practice.
They didn't like Waus' sug-

district. Two members, Janice
Holloway and Larry Grimard,
were absent.
The conditional-use ordi-
nance would change how
building height exceptions
are decided within the city,
and according to member
discussion, remove the need
for a height ban that could
have unintended results.
Commissioners believe a
three-story cap would lead to
every new development
being 35 feet.
City council would have
the final approval, unlike the
current process, which leaves
height decisions to planning
commission.
Members said if council
wants that power, to go
ahead, though some were
upset at the implication they
hadn't done avery good job of,
enforcing height limits.
Vice chair. Jerry Towery


gestions on how to do that,
but neither Watts nor Rastello
would elaborate. Venice Mu-
nicipal Airport doesn't accept
local tax dollars and has its
own enterprise fund, so Watts
feels like he's walking into a
strong financial situation.
"It was one of those things
where they didn't want to do
anything with ,adjusting tax
revenue, to get off the tax rev-
enues, correct lease policies
and guidelines," Watts said.
"They wanted to go one
direction, and I wanted to go
another... so it was best I go."
Path to Venice
Development issues were
the main sticking point in
Charlotte County during his
final year, with him resigning
in April 2001 after getting pro-
bation and a poor evaluation
the previous fall. Airport
board members were at 3-2
odds on Watts, who opposed
a "through-the-fence" deal
where aviation businesses
used the facility but were
based off airport property.
The following spring,


took exception to people who
feel he and other members
have been a "rubber stamp"
on height issues.
"Personally, I don't think
the planning commission has
done a bad job on this,"
Towery said.
Four out of five requests
for extra height have been
granted since 1999, according
to Slaughter. Waterfront on
Venice Island was allowed to
build three condominium
towers at 105 feet each, Bel-
eza on the Beach at 8,8 feet,
Charleston Place condomini-
ums at nearly 47 feet and a
downtown building at 44 feet.
The fifth request, at Fish-
erman's Wharf, was denied.:
The downtown building has
been challenged by citizens,
willing to pay the $300 fee
required for a hearing before
city council.
There was a sixth request


bokrd members and airport
tenants were quoted in the
Charlotte Sun newspaper as
saying his poor evaluation
was because Watts opposed
allowing such a risky agree-
ment.
Watts was quickly hired by
Lee County Port Authority,
where he directed all airside,
terminal and landside opera-
tions.
"It was one of those things
(in Charlotte County) where
maybe it was about time for a
change," Watts said. "For lack
of a better way to put it, I went
back to college, learning
about carrier airports (in Lee
County) that I otherwise
could not have learned."
Watts was turned down for
;n airport operations manag-
er position in Martin County
in December 2002 and was'
passed over for the Venice job:
more than a year ago when
the previous airport manager,
Robert Hernandez, was hired
for about $5,000 less than
Watts is asking for.
That was when Watts took
the job in Titusville.


approved at Roberts Bay, but
the developers failed to file
proper building permits in
time and approval will expire
Thursday. City ManageT
Marty Black said thie height
exception will not be re
newed.
Passing five ou of six rei
quests is too many, according
to some of the residents who
spoke.
But, resident Don O'Corn
nell said, all a 35-feet heiglt
maximum will accomplish i$
guaranteeing every new deo
velopment is three stories tall,.
instead of varying heights;
The cap should be set at foui
or five stories for more flexij
ability.
"You're going to have noth;
ing but boring, unattractive,
bland buildings (at 35 feet),4'
O'Connell said. "This starn-
dardized, one-size-fits-all alpA
proach is ridiculous." ,


His strengths are daily air-
port operations, obtaining
funds and luring in futu ,
businesses that will suppo
the enterprise funds, accord,
ing to Black.
Venice would like to deveg
op 125 acres of vacant airpoFt
property to support furtur
operations. .. "
"He's got a good back;
ground.in all those areas ant
he knows the local and stat.

Black said. "He knows how tB

Watts has a bachelor.

Bartlett

Benedictine

bound

Venice High football line-
man Mike Bartlett will con-
tinue his playing career at
Benedictine College in Kan-
sas.
Bartlett, a senior who
stands 6 feet, 5 inches and
weighs in at 300 pounds, is
penciled in to play offensive
tackle at Benedictine, located
in Atchison.
The Ravens were 5-6 in
2004. Benedictine competes
under NAIA guidelines in the
Heart of America Athletic
Conference.
Venice High football hon-
ored the players from its
2004 season with a banquet
at Buffalo Bill's restaurant
located in the Holiday Inn.
Senior lineman Russ Har-
ris cleaned up with three
awards. He grabbed the Jim
Powell Award, the Finish
The Job Award and took the
team's Academic Award.
Senior running back Cory
Eskew was the recipient of
two awards. He was the
Offensive MVP and also got a
trophy for being a 1,000-Yard
Rusher.
Senior defensive back/end
Adrian Platt also won two
awards. He got the Lineback-
er Clufb Award and Big Hit
Award.
The Defensive MVP was
junior safety Tony Charles.
The Offensive Line MVP
was Jon Shipps and the
Defensive Line MVP was
Aaron Stahl.
Junior headhunter Travis
Nottingham got the Special
Teams Award. Ray Popp won
the Jack Dundas "Rudy"
Award.

The team captains for the
2005 Venice High football
team are Charles and line-
man Brad Ackles.
Head coach Nick Coleman
was having supper at the
Outback Steakhouse in south
Venice with the two new
captains on Jan. 25 when an
anonymous Good Samirtan
plunked down $100 and said
it will cover the cost of the
meal. The elderly soul was
impressed with the coach
and players having supper
together. He added that his
own coach left a lasting
impression on him many
moons ago.
To whoever the kind per-
son is, Coleman is most
grateful.

The annual recruiting fair
will be this coming Monday
and Tuesday at- Webber
International University in
Babson Park. Venice coaches
Coleman, Jeremy Brown and
John Peacock will be taking
film of seniors over the
Webber on Sunday. College
recruiters will look over the
film, see who they like and
then see if they can work
something out with the play-
ers. Players will head over to
the fair on Tuesday.
Venice has a few players
who would like to play college
ball.

The 2005 Venice High foot-
ball schedule still has some
gaps, but Coleman is working
hard to get them filled.
It looks like opening week
could be filled by Lakeland,
the defending 5A champions.
Pace is another possible
opponent.

He comes from a basket-
ball family. He's a gym rat.
And he works hard.
Those ingredients have
helped mold George Stritz
into a leader on the Venice
High boys varsity squad.
The 5-foot, 10-inch junior
plays two guard for the
Indians. He is a dangerous
outside shooter especially
from 3-point land.
But the thing that has
impressed the most about
Stritz in his first varsity sea-
son is his willingness to flat-
out give his all on defense.
"With him being an offen-
sive player, the one thing I
was fearful about was if he
would buy into the defense,",


veteran Venice coach Tom
McLaughlin said. "But he's
played great defense. He
works hard on his assign-
ments. He fights through
screens. He enjoys taking on
challenges."
usually puts.
me on the
best player .
on the other
team," Stritz :
said.
By taking
his man-to-
man "D" up a Stritz
notch, Stritz
has been able to get some
steals and transition layups.
But his bread and butter is
to spot up for a trey.
It's not the most fluid
looking shot in the world, but


the two-handed set usually
will "Git 'er done."
"George is close to 40 per-
cent in 3-points, which is
one of the best in the area,"
McLaughlin said. "He also
shoots free throws well."
Stritz shoots a team-high

72 percent from the charity
stripe.
Stritz also leads the Indi-
ans in scoring average,
putting in 10 points a
game.
Stritz grew up in a hoops-
oriented family. Father
George Sr. played back in
his native Hazleton, Pa.
George has two sisters who
played girls varsity basket-
ball at Venice High. His fam-
ily attends most games
cheering for their favorite
Indian.


"I've been playing basket-
ball since I was 5 years old,"
George said. "I started at the
YMCA."
He still can be found play-
ing there. Or the Woodmere
Courts or City Courts.
After the high school sea-
son, George and most of the
varsity players participate in
AAU ball under George Sr.,
who is also a hoops referee.
There is still some unfin-
ished business this season.
Venice High will play in a
District 11 Tournament semi-
final at 6 p.m. Wednesday
against Lakewood Ranch.
A win will put Venice in

game.
A loss will end the Indians'

In other sports, a senior
playing his first year on the
varsity usually translates into
a role player at best, a bench
jockey at worst.
But wrestling is a different
animal.
An underclassman can be
trapped behind a stronger
athlete at a given weight.
Hence, he toils away unher-
alded on junior varsity. When
he becomes a senior, he final-
ly gets his chance to shine.
Never has this scenario
been more evident at Venice,
*High.
Coach Dan Kelly has four
'first-year varsity seniors -
Cory Rittenhouse, Ricky Hefl,
Randy Re II and Viktor
Vasilevskiy.
What makes this group so
special is, all four are having
outstanding seasons. Collec-
tively, their record is an eye-
opening 122-30.
They have been a key part
of the Indians' fine 14-2 dual
meet record and have helped
win three regular season
tournaments plus the District
11 title this past weekend.
"Normally, you feel com-
fortable when you're on the
varsity as a junior," Kelly said.
"We had a group of juniors
who could have wrestled var-
sity in other places. But with
the strength of our team last
year, there was no place to go.
They had to swallow their
pride a little bit and stick it

out on the JV. I've seen so
many jtuiors not make varsi-
tr. and then quit. That's why
I give these guys so much
credit."
Rittenhouse toiled for
three years on the JV squad.
Guys like Shawn Rouhan
were in the varsity spotlight.
Then again, it's hard to unseat
an unbeaten state champion
like Rouhan.
Rittenhouse has put to-
gether a super effort this sea-
son on the varsity at 103
pound. His won-loss record
is 31-6. Rittenhouse won a
district championship.
"I was waiting for my time
to come," said the dynamo. "I
knew it would come around.
I just worked hard in practice
and kept getting better. My
drill partners and my coaches
kept pushing me."
Rittenhouse's goal is to
place at state. "I'm still peak-
ing," he related.
The tale of Hell is an inter-
esting one. As a freshman,
he got a splash of varsity
wrestling at 189 pounds. The
next two years saw Heil
undergo a transformation
from a pudgy kid to a fit and
trim 152-pounder. Heil has.
put together a solid senior
season. His record is an im-
pressive 27-11 and he placed
second in district.
Re was another who had
to bide his time on junior
varsity. Last year, his only

Venice High girls varsity
softball has won 20 games or
more the past four years.
Who's to argue the Lady
Indians don't make it five
straight.
With a strong feeder pro-
gram in Miss Venice Fast-
pitch, a junior varsity team
that was 20-1 last year, and a
bunch of returning talent,
Venice will have a chance to
go deep into the regional
tournament.
The Lady Indians open
their season Thursday at
Palmetto. The home opener
is Friday night against Char-,
lotte. It will be "Youth Night"
with kids getting free admis-
sion, a hot dog and a soda.
Junior varsity is at 6:30 p.m.
and varsity at 8:30 p.m.


Venice is the defending
Class 5A District 11 champi-
on. The Lady Indians were
8-0 during the regular season
and 2-0 in the tournament.
They lost in the regional
quarterfinals to Cypress Lake.
Venice loses four seniors -
shortstop Niki Davidson and
outfielders Amanda Dixon,
Amber Carney and Mallory

concentrate on volleyball and
not to .come out her senior

Indians have Re of hope


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Coming into the season,
Venice High wrestling coach
Dan Kelly knew he would
have a solid man at the 160-
pound weight class.,
Randy Re II only lost once
last' year wrestling junior
varsity.
But with Re having very
little varsity experience, it
would be hard to gauge just
how high the senior could fly.
Now a district champion
with a fine record of 35-6, Re
has his sights on the regional
and state tournaments.
He is even a bit surprised
how about well things are
going this season.
"I thought I'd have a win-


ning record, but I didn't ex-
pect this many wins," he said.
"The biggest surprise has
been Re," Venice head coach
Dan Kelly said. "At the begin-
ning of the season, I thought
he would be on the varsity,
but more than 30 wins?"
There are several reasons
for Re's success this season.
At the top of the list are the
knowledge gained from the
Indians coaching staff and
lots of sweat in practice.
"My drill partner is Ricky
Heil," Re said. "He pushes
me every day in practice. I'm
getting better and- better.
because of him. I run three
or four miles after practice
because of him."
The coaches can take cred-
it for improving Re's arsenal.


"I have a lot better tech-
nique and that is more im-
portant than strength," said
Re.
But opponents shouldn't
underestimate Re's muscle.
Re figures he has a chance
to place at state.
"My goal is to place in the
top three," he said. "I know
there's a couple guys that will
be very tough to beat."
Re points to three of his
losses that he believes could
have went the other way.
One was in overtime, another
by two points and a third by
three points.
"It's a mind thing," Re said.

Lady Indians are




in familiar territory


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


A year ago, the Venice
High girls basketball team
won District 11 and hence
played host to a regional
opener.
It was there that the Lady
Indians were surprised by
District 12 runnerup Cypress
Lake, thus ending their sea-
son.
Venice finds itself in a
familiar position this year.
Once again, the Lady In-
dians are District 11 champs.
That means once again they
will entertain the District 12
runnerup in Region 3 action.
The main difference is,
Thursday's 7 p.m. opponent
won't be Cypress Lake. In-
stead, it will be Fort Myers,
which lost to Cypress Lake
68-58 in Saturday's District 12


final.
Fort Myers lost three
times to Cypress Lake this
season.
Fort Myerg will bring a
16-9 record into the regional
quarterfinal. Venice is 21-5.
The Lady Wave is a not
necessarily a perimeter team,
but gets the load of its points
from senior guards Ronisha
Isaac (9.2 points per game)
and Brittany Lewis (7.1 ppg).
Defensively, Fort Myers
plays a lot of zone. If the Wave
packs it in, then outside
shooters like Dana Nostin,
Kailey Dettmann, Natalie
Gaudreau will play.
When Fort Myers gambles
on the 1-3-1, Venice will look
for Lisa Hough and Vickie
Mitchell inside.
"We need to get off to a
good start," Venice head
coach Joe DiGiacomo said.


"That will help us play with
confidence. We don't want to
be over ready. We want to
execute and have fun."
Good shooting is some-
thing Venice will need
throughout the regional
playoffs.
"We need to put the rock
in the basket," said Di-
Giacomo, who is assisted by
Cayll Smith and Snake Hal-
bert. "We'll go as far as our.
offense takes us. We need to
shoot well."
If Venice wins its regional
opener, it will again play at
home on Tuesday in the
semifinals. The lady Indians
will play the winner of
Clearwater (25-3) vs. Boca
Ciega (21-6). Clearwater
won atVenice early in the sea-
son.

The Venice High girls hoopsters are a proud bunch after winning the Class 5A District 11 title
Saturday night at Lakewood Ranch High. The Lady Indians defeated Manatee to win the crown.


WORK r.


Zach Gaudreau, who claimed
the 160-pound spot on varsi-
ty. Re went on to post an
unbeaten record on JV
Re has blossomed as the
160-pounder on varsity. He
has a record of 35-6 and
reigns as district champion.
"I knew it would pay off,"
Re said of his time down on
the farm. "I just had to have
patience."
Vasilevskiy is known as
"the Russian Bear" because of
his brute strength. He wres-
tiled a couple of the smaller
tournaments on varsity last


year, but was squeezed out by
Ben Hoffman, an excellent
wrestler who-went on to place
third in the state at 215
pounds.
The 2004-2005 season has
been Vasilevskiy's time to
shine. He sports a 29-7 record
at 215 pounds and just
missed scoring a major up-
set Bayshore's Shane Hamm .
in his district final.
"All four have a good
shot of going to state," Kelly
said.
Which is a long way from
the junior varsity mat.


SOFTBALLERS .....


Venice guard Natalie Gaudreau, left, reaches in for a steal
against Manatee High Saturday night.


Steve Birowfield and Darrell
Buando\v-at the junior varsity
level. "We have pitching and
some long ballers. It should
be a fun year."
Kanter said the main threat
in District 11 will be Lake-
wood Ranch, who will de-
pend on senior pitcher Me-
lissa Dowling.
Veiice played two presea-
son games in the Diamond
.Classic last Thursday and
Friday at Sarasota High. On
Thursday, Venice dropped a
1-0 game to Riverview. On
Friday, the Lady Indians
broke out with a 20-0 win
over Cardinal Mooney.
Following is how the 2005
Venice team breaks down:
PITCHING The Lady
Indians have three pitchers
who can do the job. The most
experienced is Heather Laird,
who has been firing on varsity
since she was a freshman.
She has a tough riser. Heather
Boyts was the ace of last:
year's JV team. She also saw a
little varsity action. Boyts has
a tough drop ball and curve.
Another live arm belongs to
sophomore Felicia Taylor.
INFIELD The Lady
Indians have gloves and bats
in this department. Mandy
Simon cements third base
and Carly Brownfield is at first
base. Brittany Hipple moves
from second to shortstop.
Behind the -plate is team
leader Amber Davidson, who
is starting her fourth year. All
four can blast over the fence.
Kristen Bailey is first string
second base with Taylor a
reserve.
OUTFIELD This is
where graduation hit Venice
the hardest. Taylor is speedy
and can play centerfield.
Others looking to fit in in-
clude Mandy Clements, Crys-
tal Hess, Courtney Bennett
and Molly Brandow. Laird
can also play outfield.
Kanter said a true batting
order won't be set until after
the Palmetto Tournament
later this month.

Re was drawn to wrestling
because it provided a strong
challenge.
"Football and wrestling are
the only sports you can legal-
ly hit people," he joked.
"Wrestling is one-on-one -
you can't blame anybody


else."

Narc: Painkiller abuse on the rise local


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER
The abuse of OxyContin,
a powerful painkiller, has
worked its way up from labor
to management blue collar
to white collar and is in-
creasing.
Professionals as well as
common laborers are becom-
ing addicted to the potentially
fatal narcotic, law enforce-
ment officials said.
"We've certainly seen it," an,
undercover narcotics agent,
or "narc," with the Sarasota
County Sheriffs Office said.
"We're not sure why the in-
crease, but a lot of it may be
word of mouth."
Oxy (Ox-e), or "OC" as it is
known on the street, is a pill.
The FDA-approved indica-
tion for OxyContin is for the
*treatment of patients with
moderate to severe pain who
are expected to need contin-
uous opioids (opium-based
medicine) for an extended
time.
An 80-mg, Oxy pill costs
about $6 with a prescription.
It sells for $30-40 on the
street.


Double-edged sword
OxyContin is at once a
miracle drug, helping man-
age severe, long-term pain -
and a killer when abused by
addicts.
It kills hundreds of people
in Sarasota County every year,
according to the narc, whose
job prevents his being identi-
fied by name.
Law enforcement officials
said illicit Oxy can be obtained
in three ways:
* stealing it
doctor shopping (the
abuser goes to different doc-
tors, having each write a pre-
scription; doctor shopping is
not uncommon in Venice)
forged prescriptions
Time release
A recently published report
in the Boston Herald states
that many professionals get
hooked after getting an OC
prescription for severe back
pain, post-surgery pain or
other ailments.
"The legitimate pill has a
built-in time release that is
designed to work over 12
hours," the narc said. "But the
dopers crush it to nullify the


OXYCONTIN
Here is what you need to know about OxyContin, the drug of
choice among illicit drug users.
OxyContin contains oxycodone HCL, an opioid agonist with an
addiction potential similar to that of morphine. Opioid agonists
are substances that act by attaching to specific proteins called opi-
oid receptors, which are found in the brain, spinal cord and gas-
trointestinal tract.
When these drugs attach to certain opioid receptors in the
brain and spinal cord, they can effectively block the transmission
of pain messages to the brain.
OxyContin is a controlled substance in Schedule II of the
Controlled Substances Act, which is administered by the Drug
Enforcement Administration. Schedule II provides the maximum
amount of control possible under the CSA for approved drug
products.
OxyContin, like morphine, has a high potential for abuse.
It is supplied in a controlled-release dosage form and is intended
to provide up to 12 hours of relief from moderate to severe
pain.
The tablet must be taken whole and only by mouth. When the
tablet is crushed and its contents are injected intravenously or
snorted into the nostrils, the controlled release mechanism is
defeated and a potentially lethal dose of oxycodone is released
immediately.
For more information, patients and health care providers can
call Purdue Pharmaceuticals at (888) 726-7535, or go to the Food
and Drug Administration's Web site at: fda.gov/cderidrug/
infopage/oxycontin/.


time release and there is an
immediate effect."
In Massachusetts, Oxy


.started in the trenches and
worked its way into the board-
room.


"We're seeing all different
types of people that are using
it," Massachusetts State
Police Lt. Kenneth Gill stated
in the Herald report.
He said police have seen
businessmen and homemak-
ers at drug houses during
stakeouts.
The sheriffs narc said OC
can be "shot up" with a
syringe by first crushing it,
then'adding water. He also
said some addicts chew the
OxyContin pill.
"We've seen them chew it
on the way out of the phar-
macy," he said.
The undercover agent said
OC is similar to heroin.
"It gives you a euphoria,"
he said, "no pain, no cares."
Competitive marketplace
The narc said the prolifera-
tion of Oxy has had an unex-
pected effect on the use of
heroin.
"The quality of heroin has
come up," he said, "because it
has to compete with Oxy-
Contin."
He said addicts go back
and forth between Oxy and
heroin, depending on their

availability.
The lawman said OC
abuse, like the abuse of hero-
in and other drugs, has a pre-
dicted effect.
"We've certainly seen more
robberies and pharmacy
break-ins in Sarasota Coun-
ty," he said. '"A lot of stores, for
instance, the pharmacies at
some grocery stores, won't
stock it (for fear of being
robbed)."
People are as susceptible
to overdosing on OxyContin
as they are on heroin, accord-
ing to the undercover narc.
"And when you're off it,'
he said, "you get physically
sick and you need more to
feel better."

or two at the Myakka Pines Golf Club off River Road. You may
want to think twice about retrieving your ball out of the water,
though. Keep your eyes open and use caution. Better yet, why
not just take a drop. These gators were spied on the course
during the last week. Here are some that currently call Myakka

OUR VIEW


Martinez not thinking


!-term on drilling issue


he National Wildlife Federation posted
an e-mail last week blasting Florida's
freshman Sen. Mel Martinez for his em-
bracement of drilling in the Arctic National
Wildlife Refuge. The criticism is valid.
We had, and still have, high hopes for
Martinez as a representative of our state in
the U.S. Senate. He has many qualities that
should make him an effective senator.
But it is troubling that he too often takes
the side of the Republican majority, even,
when that stance is not in the best interest of
Florida. In the case of drilling in Alaska, we
believe Martinez is following the pack and


turning his back on the Sunshine State.
The senator, in a Bradenton Herald article,
said he would vote for drilling in the ANWR
because fellow senators from Alaska believe it
can be done safely. What he fails to realize is
that by taking that stance he is weakening his
argument against drilling off Florida's coastline.
The National Wildlife Federation made
some good points in its criticism.
If drilling is safe and clean for the Arctic
Refuge, how can Martinez expect to argue
convincingly that it's exactly the opposite
when it comes to protecting Florida's beach-
es from offshore rigs?


The value of America's wildlife and recre-
ation landscapes outweighs their potential to
supply a short-term (we would emphasize
. short-term) energy fix.
Sacrificing Alaska to drilling today will
make it more difficult to spare other areas
later.
Martinez has to realize and we're cer-
tain he does the same companies that
want to drill in Alaska have their eyes on the
Gulf of Mexico.
It would seem hypocritical for Martinez to
stand on the Senate floor and renounce the
idea drilling is dangerous for Alaska's polar


bears, caribou and pristine wilderness and
turn around next year and say drilling poses a
severe threat to Florida's beaches. A smart
public relations person from the oil and gas
industry would certainly have copies of any
speech in favor ofANWR drilling to throw up
to Martinez when and if-- he tries.to pro-
tect Florida from a similar fate.
Sen. Bill Nelson, a Democrat, has opposed
drilling both in Alaska, and off Florida's
shores. His position is stronger for its consis-
tency.
We would urge Sen. Martinez to reconsid-
er his support for Alaska drilling.


Carlton holds top


leadership role in


Florida Senate


ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST


"No."
So said Florida Sen. Lisa
Carlton, who represents Ven-
ice as part of District 23, when
asked if she would consider
running for the U.S. House of
Representatives or the U.S.
Senate.
I could imagine a sigh of
relief emanating from Con-,
gresswoman Katherine: Har-
ris, who by many accounts is
planning to run for the U.S.
Senate in two years, and State
'Rep. Nancy Detert, who is
said to have eyes on Harris'
Washington seat.

LOCAL HISTORY
Wednesday, Feb. 16, at 8:30
p.m., watch WEDU's "A Gulf
Coast Journal Special: The
Carlton Family Legacy," with
host Jack Perkins taking a look
at the historic Mabry Carlton
Ranch in Sarasota, home to
Sen. Lisa Carlton and her
family. The program will be
shown again Sunday, Feb. 20,
at 2:30 p.m.

Carlton's accomplish-
ments, integrity, indepen-
dence,' political skills and
deep Florida roots would
make her, in this columnist's
view, a much better candidate
than either. My opinion is
based on reviewing her rec-
ord (and theirs); speaking
with. her staff and with the
senator by phone over time (I
do not know her personally);
and having spent about half
my life observing and evalu-
ating elected officials, mostly
at close hand.
Carlton did not say, "At this
time I have no plans to run,"
or "I really haven't given that
any thought," or "Right now I
have all I can do in the Senate
and that is where I am putting
my total concentration," or'
any other phrase frequently
used by politicians to leave
them room to run. She said,
"No."
I felt it was, perhaps, a one-
word capsule of her nature -
direct, straightforward and
not ambiguous. When I have
met elected officials like that
it is more pleasing than find-
ing sharks' teeth on Venice
Beach-- and more rare.
Carlton has become, argu-
ably, the second-most impor-
tant senator following only
Senate President Tom Lee of
Brandon. She is chair of the
Ways and Means Committee,
which under a new structure
is the key in balancing the
several appropriations com-


mittees Education, Health
and Human Services, etc. -
to control expenditures and
revenues and make possible
Lee's plans to begin a long-
range budgeting process.
At present, the Florida
Legislature, like many legisla-
tive bodies, plans and bud-
gets from year to year. Carl-
ton, a strong advocate of a
multi-year process, described
her legislative priorities as
implementing the new coor-
dinating-and-budgeting role
of the Ways and Means Com-
mittee and "promoting the
president's (Lee's) long-range
budgeting process."
In program terms, educa-
tion remains Carlton's top pri-
ority. She strongly supports
the effort to limit class sizes.
In budgeting, she sees her
role as helping establish allo-
cations for all areas, kinder-
garten to 12th grade, commu-
nity colleges and institutions
of higher education.
She sees the new process
as limiting the practice of rob-
bing Peter to pay Paul, by hav-
ing the areas of education
competing with each other
and allowing educators to
plan ahead, rather than wait-
ing year by year to see what
they get.
She also chairs the Select
Committee on Medicaid Re-
form, which promises to be a
full-time job by itself. The
governor's proposed budget
aims at limiting Medicaid
expenditures has already
drawn criticism for singling
out the poor and medically
needy for cuts.
Ways and Means' new role
will be similar to the budget
committees in Washington,
but it will have teeth.
The Congressional Budget
Committee sets "ceilings" for
the various departments and
appropriations committees,
but Congress under current
rules can ignore them. In the
Clinton years Congress
adopted a "pay-as-you-go"
rule that required additional
expenditures be balanced by
cuts or new revenues. Pres-
ident Bush and the Re-
publican majority ended that
practice, and there are now
calls for it to be reinstated by
Democrats and conservative
Republicans who have
watched deficits soar.
In Tallahassee, each of the
various appropriation com-
mittees will develop its bills,
which will be put into one
comprehensive bill by the,
Ways and Means Committee,
allowing fiscal controls.
It is not hard to imagine,
the significance of Carlton's
position as chair. It reminds
me of a line from John Stein-
beck in "Tortilla Flats," which
was something like, "How the
prayers of the multitudes
must tumble and fight with
each other on the way to the
ears of God."
Carlton, at the young age
of 40, has compiled an im-

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS

'Hybrid cars are cleaner, but won't save money


Editor:
It will cost the county $3,000 more for the hybrid Ford
Escape compared with the conventional Escape. The county
expects the Escape to go 15,000 miles per year of city driving.
If we compare 25 mpg for the conventional Escape with the
36 mpg for.the hybrid (600 gallons of gas vs. 417 gallons), the
county will save 183 gallons of gas per year. Let's say that the
county pays $2 per gallon. That translates into a saving of $366
per year, In six years, the county will save about $2,200. ,
However, the county is spending the extra money at a net.
present value of $3,000. Thus we must calculate the net present
value of an annuity of $366 for six years. Using a 6 percent dis-
count rate, the net present value of the saving is about $1,800.
That is equivalent to taking $1,200 taxpayer dollars and dump-
ing them in the shredder.
As a corollary, if we run these hybrids longer than six years
(90,000-100,000 miles), sooner or later we will be faced with a
very large battery-pack replacement expense.
Arguing we should buy these hybrid vehicles to save money
makes no sense.
However, the 31 percent reduction in fuel burned also
means a 31 percent reduction in air pollutants. And that's
another matter entirely.

Dismayed by
razor blade
Editor:
I was dismayed and dis-
gusted on seeing the cover
photo of the TV Times Feb.
13-19 edition that is included
with the Gondolier Sun.
In addition to our war on
terror, our country is also
fighting a war on drugs. In my
opinion, it is totally inappro-
priate to ,show a photo of
singer Alicia Keys wearing
drug paraphernalia (a razor
blade) as a fashion statement.
It's doubtful Ms. Keys is wear-
ing the blade as a symbol sug-
gesting the clean-shaven
look, but rather she is glamor-
izing the blade, which is a tool
to chop illicit drugs such as
cocaine, crystal metham-


phetamine and heroin.
Nice message to send to
our children.

Planning commission
may require approval
Editor:
Recently developer Jean
Trammell submitted a re-
quest to Venice City Council
to have the property at 221
Nokomis Ave. rezoned from
residential to commercial.
She also requested approval
to tear down the home on it
and build a three-story com-
bination office-and-condo
building.
Many local residents from
both Costa Brava and Bella


Costa attended this meeting
and presented to council a
petition with approximately
300 signatures protesting the
rezoning of this property and
the construction of the three-
story building. The council
ignored the requests of these
citizens and voted to rezone
the property. They did not
approve the plans for the con-
struction of the building.
Roger Button states in his
business column in the Feb. 4
Gondolier Sun that developer
Jean Trammell will be con-
structing this' three-story
building. Does he' know
something that the rest of us
citizens do not know?
Has council approved the
plans behind closed doors? If
riot, then is Jean Trammell
that sure that her plans will be
approved that we citizens will
have no voice or vote in the
manner? Does she have that
much influence with the city
council that she has no fear
that this building will be built?
Don't the citizens of Venice
have any voice anymore
when it comes to the rezoning
of property for commercial
use; the increase in high-rise
condos; or the increase in
proposed commercial build-
ings higher than one floor on
Venice island, and especially
along Venice Avenue?
Dan A. Gerbase
Venice
Editor's Note: As to the
Trammell property, if its new zon-
ing is appropriate for the building
planned for the site, no further
approval from city council would
be required. Any further approvals
would come from the planning-


commission, if needed.
Some things are
worth a few germs
Editor:
I was quite taken aback by
the recent question in the col-
umn "The word on the
street." In our world must
there always be a spin?
The question was, "Should
churches do away with fel-'
lowship handshakes, for sani-
tary reasons?" In the church
that I attend, we are directed
to offer some sign of peace
and that is a powerful direc-
tive. Wouldn't the world be a
better place if we truly lived
that idea?
If we begin to eliminate
things ii our lives "for sani-
tary reasons," we certainly
.would ,never visit a doctor's
office; would avoid grocery
carts; and certainly never
would touch a newspaperor
handle money.

Free flu shots available for children


STAFF REPORT


Sarasota County Health De-
partment officials announced
they are now offering free flu


shots at the four health de-
partment child immuniza-
tion 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.

Exception's OK. After attending the planning commission
meeting, I favor the decision to grant the 9-foot height excep-
tion requested by the property owners, while at the same time
I worry about the precedent it may appear to set. I just read
columnist Ed Martin's deceptive and contradictory article
titled, "Citizens must be heard on height exception." In his col-
umn he omits that neither he nor Levine showed up at the
planning commission when it was on the agenda. Perhaps he
reviewed the proceedings after the meeting, but they did not
give their views when it was appropriate to do so. Who knows,
they might have even understood why the exception was con-
sidered and, far-fetched as it may sound, they might have even
favored the decision themselves. Instead, they don't go to the
meeting and want to spend $300 to appeal the decision, which
will waste a lot of other people's time and money.


No. I want to express my
disapproval of the four-story
building. We have a 35-foot
limit and should stick to that.
No. I am against the four-
story building.
And no again. City council
should definitely reject the
four-story building down-
town.
Democracy there and here.
On Sunday, Jan. 30, some 60
percent of Iraqis voted for a
new government they could
only hope would plan a better
life for them. They walked to
the polls and braved gunfire.
Two days later Venice voters
had a chance to attend an
Envision Venice meeting to
actually help plan the future
of the city. Only 60 citizens
had enough courage to turn
off the TV and drive to the
meeting.
Need a schedule. We have
massive traffic jams trying to
get on and off Venice island


because the bridges are al-
ways going up. They need to
go up once an hour on a
schedule.
It is no wonder why no one
wants to come on the island
and why the businesses on
the island are dying. You can-
not gel on or off the island. It
doesn't take a college degree to
figure out you need to put the
bridges on a schedule.
No to condos. The home-
owners at the Bayfront com-
munity where the Tild Bar is
don't want condos built there.
No one knew anything about
this. It was slipped in some-
how. We don't want condos. It
should be voted on. There are
no marinas anymore. Where
are they putting the marinas?
Something has to be done.

what are you doing, Venice?
This whole area is very
unique. Don't improve or
eliminate in order to say-you
have done something. Is
Venice going to be altered by
people who don't really see
the uniqueness of this area?
Change this in Venice, change
that in Venice, is all I keep
hearing since I got here nine
months ago. Change for the
sake of change does not make
sense. This area is very inter-
esting. Venice, what are you
doing?
Up in smoke. Why is smok-
ing allowed on Sharky's rest-
aurant deck? Our family
thought we would enjoy a
lunch on the deck recently.
Next to us were an adult male
and female puffing away. We'
asked the waitress if smoking
was allowed and she said yes.
Would the Gondolier Sun
please send a reporter to look
into this serious health haz-
ard? In the meantime, we are
never going to step foot in
Sharky's.

on workplace smoking generally
doesn't extend to such outside

MARTIN from page 13A


pressive legislative resume.
After being graduated from
Stetson University and receiv-
ing her law degree from
Mercer University, she served
as a legislative aide in 1992 to
James M. Lombard, then the
House leader. The next year
she was legislative aide to
Sen. John M. McKay, who was
later Senate president.
The next year, 1994, she
was elected to the Florida
House, and in 1998 to the
Senate, where she has chaired
the Education Appropri-
ations Subcommittee and
worked closely with McKay as
Senate president.
She supported McKay's in-
itiative to review sales-tax
exemptions and remove the
most egregious, such as the
exemption for the cost of lux-.
ury boxes at athletic stadi-
ums. Two initiatives toward
this end failed when the
courts found technical flaws
in them.
Carlton thinks the issue is
not on the table in this ses-


Lu I I S from page 13A
Dr. Dorothy Height, chair
and president emerita of
the National Council of
Negro Women, wrote in a
letter to The Post: "Despite
the challenges she will face,
Ms. Rice's appointment is a
time for women of color to
smile."
But Byrd and other liberal
Democrats don't want black
women to smile.
The Democratic Party has
a long history of antipathy
toward blacks, including
lynching, passing Jim Crow
laws and blocking the exten-


sion of the Legislature, but
McKay, now a private Braden-
ton citizen, is working on
another attempt.
This is one of those issues
on which most independent
observers, the media, etc.,
have felt McKay was right, but
the governor and lobbyists
have resisted. Last year in an
interview, Detert said she did
not support the sales tax
repeals, she was following the
governor. That posture has
essentially marked her career
as opposed to the more inde-
pendent Carlton.
Carlton supports adding a
paper trail to voting machines
so their accuracy can be con-
firmed again, a sign of in-,
dependence and integrity.
The mother of three and
the owner and co-manager of

And the treatment of Rice
smacks of racism.
Contrary to the respect
given Madeline Albright, lib-
eral cartoonist Pat Oliphant
drew Rice as a big-lipped,
bucktoothed quacking par-
rot, slurring her as a hollow-
headed stooge.
John Sylvester, a white lib-
eral Democrat talk show host
in Madison, Wisc., character-
ized her on the air as a servile
black, calling her an "Aunt
Jemima."


Her father was a Sarasota
County commissioner from
1980 to '89. Her grandfather
was the tax assessor for
Hardee County for 18 years,
and she has also had uncles
and cousins in elected office.
Still, those who know her see
her roots in the ranch and her
family.
Since I am fairly convinced
that "No" means "No," we will
have four years to be grateful
for her presence in the Senate
and will watch her try to add
additional order to Florida's
legislative budgeting process.
We will have to wait for one
of her two daughters or her
son to carry the mantle to
Washington.

WHAT TEETH ARE MADE OF
Our teeth are actually living structures which require a blood supply to
maintain them in health as part of our bodies. As we grow older, they
change in calcification, color, hardness, brittleness and shape. I
Teeth consist of enamel, dentin. cementum. and pulp tissue. Enamel is
the hardest substance in the body. It is 950o calcified (mineralized). As
compare with dentin at 70%o and cementum at 500%, enamel is almost .
as hard as some semiprecious stones, and a cementum is about the
same hardness as normal bone. Dentin hardness is somewhere
between. Well-calcified enamel is translucent, usually yielding a light
yellow color, a reflection of the natural color of the underlying dentin.
White enamel is really quite uncommon. Even enamel that appears
N very white has in fact some yellow in it. Although we all want very
. white teeth this may be an impossible dream. There are some
' conditions which just don't respond to whitening and bleaching
techniques as we would like.

Man flees
during questioning
A suspect fled a police
interview room after being
questioned about an alleged
sex crime, a Sarasota Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office report
shows.
Raymond L. Hobson, 40,
4200 block Mercury Road,'
Venice, was arrested and
charged with lewd and lasciv-
ious battery on a child under
16, and escape. His bond is
$10,000.
The incident happened in
a Ramada Inn motel room at
5 a.m., Feb. 8.
According to the police
report, the 15-year-old vic-
tim told police she had
three sexual encounters
with a man nicknamed
"Peanut."
She said at least the first
sexual encounter was "proba-
bly" consensual because she
was using crack cocaine.
While waiting in the police
interview room to be taken to
jail, Hobson ran.
He was caught about one-
quarter mile away and taken
into custody.
Hobson said the victim
was the aggressor and that
she traded sex in order to
obtain drugs.
Another man was also in
the room.
He told police the victim
was a willing participant.

priced from $15 in the grand-
stand to box seats at $40, and
can be obtained by calling the
Circus Sarasota box office at

7 p.m. during the week with
two shows Saturday at 2 p.m.
and'7 p.m. and Sunday at 1
p.m. and 5 p.m.
I was there Saturday night
and loved every minute of the
amazing show -.the horses,
the riders, the dogs in the
Muttville Comix Canine Re-
view, Dolly Jacobs and Yuri
Rjkov, hand balancer Ricardo
Sosa from Cuba and a won-
derful juggler from Austria.
You should see the show
because it is a wonderful cir-

the show because it is pre-
serving the circus legacy of
this area. Neither Sarasota nor
Venice- would be what they
are today, had The Greatest-

this area for so many years.
Clown College was founded

tale of her youth in Nazi Ger-
many, where she was raised in
a family so opposed to Hitler
that her father was threatened
with death in a concentration
camp. The book also is a love
story that recounts her meet-
ing with Gunther Kern, his
antics as a young pilot and
opera singer and their mar-
riage and move to America
where they both had success-
ful careers in engineering and
science. There is so much
more to this book but I want
you to buy it and have your

Venice Area Historical Society




honors longtime pastor


STORY BY JEREMY ROTTGEN STAFF WRITER


T


he Rev. James Clarence Sims will
be the honored guest at the Feb. 22
meeting of the Venice Area
Historical Society.


How many people in the
community are capable of
gaining your admiration,
respect and trust? Rev. Sims
would be a good start. His
contributions to the Laurel
community are both leg-
endary and praiseworthy.
The Rev. James Clarence
Sims will be honored for
those achievements among
others on Feb. 22. The Venice
Area Historical Society is
organizing the tribute that
will highlight Sims' life in rela-:
tion to the history of the
Venice area.
The Rev. Julius Wynn of
Highland Missionary Baptist
Church in Tampa met Rev.
Sims in 1988. It is from him
that Rev. Wynn learned how
to run a church.
"He's just an excellent per-
son. I was a young preacher
when i came to him and he
was so free with advice. He's a
proverbial man that would
give you the shirt off his back.
We need more people like
him in our society," Wynn
said. "You could always trust
everything he said to you."
While preaching at anoth-
er church in Fort Mead, Rev.
Sims would have revivals with
other churches regardless of
their race.
"He transcended race by
having those revivali" Wynn
said.
Rev. Sims was interviewed
for the historical documen-
tary "Imagintig Venice." His
recollection of Venice's black
community is probably the
most respected and knowl-
edgeable of all. It covers the
evolving role of blacks in the
Venice community through-
out the years. The full inter-
view, not available on the
movie, will be presented at
the tribute.
In the interview Rev. Sims
recalls key points in the city's
history, including its origins
and early industry of turpen-'
tine mills and railways.-
Rev. Sims' youngest daugh-
ter, Sandra Sims-Terry, 57,
made history herself by being
the force behind the Sandra
Sims Terry Community Cen-
ter in Laurel. She was instilled
with the same good nature as
her father.
, "There's a gene in our fam-
ily that makes us want to
make things better," she said.
"He had a quiet deliberation
and a determination to al-


%ways do the right thing."
According to the VAHS,
Rev. Sims was born March 4,
1921, to Clarence and Bea-
trice Sims in Quickman, Ga.
His parents came to Venice in
1929 because his father was
hired as "section crew chief"
with the Seaboard Airline
Railway, earning $1 an hour.
In 1926, the Brotherhood
of Locomotive Engineers
iBLE) had invested in Venice,
purchasing the John Nolen-
planned community and the
Nolen plan from Dr. Fred
Albee, a nationally famous
surgeon from New York City
and an early land investor in
the Venice/Nokomis area.
The Simses lived in the
Albee section. According to
research conducted by Sara-
sota County in the Laurel
area, this part of town was
south of the turpentine quar-
ter. As a boy, Rev. Sims ob-
served the workings of area
turpentine mills.
Opportunity followed the
BLE. Better jobs were avail-
able for blacks and they were
able to become a bigger part
of the community. "Positions
were opening up, allowing
folks who once could aspire
to being only dishwashers to
advance to head cooks.
One of Sims' first jobs was
as a waiter in the dining room
of the Florida Medical Center,
which is now the site of the
Venice Post Office. There he
met Venice founder Dr. Fred
Albee and a young Dr. Doug-
las Murphy. The medical cen-
ter was created in what had
been-the old Park View Hotel.
It opened in 1933, a time
when Venice was still some-
what of a ghost town, follow-
ing the end of the Florida land
boom of the 1920s and the
onset of the Great Depres-
sion.
Sims remained in Venice
throughout the "ghost town"
period. To survive you had to
hunt or fish and then find a
way to keep the food edible,

Sims would use his ability to
survive those tough times to
convey the messages he pre-

which then was located on
Venice Avenue, next to the old
.drug store (now the site of I.J.
Carney's). He worked there
for 45 years. During that time
he raised a family of Rwo
daughters and a son with his
wife, Ruby Wallace Sims. He
became an ordained minister
and started preaching at the
lohnson Chapel Missionary
Baptist Church in Laurel.
As a reverend Sims worked
hard to help people in the


community do the right
thing. He was saddened to see
the same people he had bap-
tized get involved in crime or
become addicted to drugs. He
would personally take kids
from Laurel to Venice in a van
to lead them in the right di-
rection.
"May we remember that
we are to have a part in creat-'
ing the kind ofcommunitywe
would like to live in," Re\.
Sims once said in an article
entitlded 'Parson to Person.'"
\Vhen the preacher for Un-
ion Missionary Baptist Church
passed away, Sims took over.


The church is located at 404
Warfield Ave., next to the Ven-
ice Water Plant and behind
Patches restaurant. Members
of die church come from as
far away as Punta Gorda. Cur-
rendy thdie congregation meets

Hicks completes training
Navy Seaman Recruit
Matthew W. Hicks, son of
Theresa L. Shick of Venice,
Fla. and Kenneth W. Hicks of
Delevan, N. Y., recently com-
pleted U.S. Navy basic train-
ing at Recruit Training Com-
mand, Great Lakes, Ill.
During the eight-week
program, Hicks completed a
variety of training which
included classroom study
and practical instruction on
naval customs, first aid, fire-
fighting, water safety and
survival, and shipboard and
aircraft safety. An emphasis
was also placed on physical
fitness.
The capstone event of
boot camp is Battle Stations.
This exercise gives recruits
the skills and confidence
they need to succeed in the
fleet. Battle Stations is de-
signed to galvanize the basic
warrior attributes of sacrifice,
dedication, teamwork and
endurance in each recruit
through 'the practical appli-
cation of basic Navy skills
and the core values of honor,
courage and commitment.


Its distinctly "Navy" flavor
was designed to take into
account what it means to be a
sailor.
Hicks is a 2004 graduate of
Venice High School.


Kraft completes training
Army National Guard Pfc.
Bernard E. Kraft has graduat-
ed from basic combat train-
ing at Fort Jackson, Colum-

tradition and core values,
physical fitness, and received
instruction and practice in
basic combat skills, military
weapons, chemical warfare
and bayonet training, drill
and ceremony, marching,
rifle marksmanship, armed
and unarmed combat, map
reading, field tactics, military
courtesy, military justice sys-
tem, basic first aid, foot
marches and field training
exercises.
He is the grandson of Cal
Milliner of Venice.

Trek for Technology is off and running at Taylor Ranch Elementary School


BY BRUCE J. ANDERSON
SCHOOL CORRESPONDENT

The sun was out and the
spirits were high as students
ran as many laps as possible
to maximize pledges made by
friends and family during
Taylor Ranch's 15th annual
Jog-A-Thon. Each year the
TRS Boosters organization
sponsors the Jog-A-Thon to
raise money to support pro-
grams that help meet the
goals of the School Im-
provement Plan. This year, all
of the money raised will go
toward the purchase of addi-
tional technology that will
expand the capabilities of
existing hardware.
Imagine a classroom
where teaching and learning
takes place on a giant moni-
tor similar to large screen TV
but that is totally interactive.
You can touch, tap and slide
your hands from one end of
the screen to the other. And,
you can still write on it like a
dry marker board. These


chalk boards of the future,
called Smart Boards, are just
one of the ways teachers are
teaching the basics while
incorporating the latest
technology to enhance
instruction.
For the first time in 15
years, the Jog-A-Thon had to
be postponed due to rain.
The event was originally
scheduled for Friday, Jan. 14.
But, despite the optimistic
outlook of the students and
staff the rain came anyway.
By early morning on the
14th, it was obvious the
weather was not going to
cooperate. The event was
moved to Friday, Jan. 21,
which turned out to be a
much better scenario.
Bright sunshine and cool-
er temperatures made it
ideal for hosting a Jog-A-
Thon. Some considered the
weather "perfect" for hold-
ing an outdoor event such as
this.
In recent months, much
has been said and written


about the need for most
children to eat healthier and
get more exercise. Taylor
Ranch has found a way to
combine better health with
needed fund-raising. In
addition, students make
exercise pay double bene-
fits. Students immediately
benefit by getting needed
exercise. They also benefit
by raising money that will
bring additional technology
into their classrooms.
As an added bonus, each
student was given a colorful
T-shirt with the theme
Trailblazers Trek for Techno-
logy 2005 embossed on the
front to promote the event.
These shirts were made pos-
sible with generous contribu-
tions made by: Absolute
Aluminum, Aircraft Mainten-
ance & Repair, Cramer Toyota
of Venice, Douglas Jeep
Polaris, Durango, Educator's
One Source, Hines Family,
Drs. Ehrlich and Sallapudi, J2

STAFF REPORT


The Sarasota County
Public Library System is help-
ing hundreds of reluctant
readers read to succeed
through a program known as
Steady Readers. Financed by
a $5,000 grant from the
Kathleen K. Catlin Fund of the
Community Foundation of
Sarasota County, the Steady
Readers program is designed
to help ESOL students
(English for Speakers of Other
Languages) and people who
read reluctantly become
more comfortable with the
joys of reading.
The Steady Readers pro-
gram allowed the library sys-
tem to purchase Steady
Readers editions of 140
copies of 20 different titles of
paperback'books with corre-
sponding audiotapes. Steady
Readers books are available .in
all Sarasota County public
libraries.
The Steady Readers edi-
tions of popular titles such as


Jack London's "The Call of the
Wild" are recorded at a 10 to
15 percent slower speed. This
allows more time for word
recognition and uses the pre-
ferred auditory learning style
of the target groups. The titles
are mainly at the upper ele-
mentary and middle school
interest level, but there are
some classics for all ages. An
analysis of circulation figures
shows that Steady Readers are
becoming increasingly popu-
lar as word of their availability
spreads.
A recent study by SCOPE
(Sarasota County Openly Plans
for Excellence) reveals that lan-
guages other than English are
spoken in 10.5 percent of
homes in Sarasota County.
Library patrons who have
checked out the materials since
the program began inApril 2004
include people from Russia,
China, Japan, Korea, Ukraine
and many Spanish-speaking
countries.
The largest circulation of
Steady Readers was record-

juice and milk.
MONDAY: No school,


ed at Selby Library, where
almost 400 of the
book/audiotape sets have
been checked out. A patron
at the North Port Library
reported doubling her vol-
ume of reading, while a
Venice Library user said,
"Steady Readers make read-
ing fun."
A mother told one of the
youth librarians at Fruitville
Library that "my daughter
likes Steady Readers so
much that as soon as she's
finished reading and listen-
ing to one, she returns it and
immediately checks out
another one."
The grant for the Steady
Readers program is being
administered by the Friends
of the Gulf Gate Library and
the library's senior librarian
for youth services, Marcia B.
McKinney. For more infor-
mation, contact McKinney
at 861-1242, or any Sarasota
County public library, for
more information about the
Steady Readers program.


Presidents Day.
TUESDAY: Crispy chicken
with cornbread, Rib-b-que
sandwich, Cobb salad, collard

Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House, visited Sarasota recently to speak at
Michael's On East. The event was a fund-raiser for St. Martha School. Eighth-grader, Via
Viteri, 13, played the violin at the affair. Grandmother Vee Gerry-Chiulli was the master of
ceremonies.


Stress busting tips for students


STAFF REPORT


Stress can seriously affect a
student's ability to learn. It's
also an unavoidable conse-
quence of life. Helping your
child learn to manage and
reduce stress is an important
life skill. Dr. Andrea Pastorok,
education specialist with
Kumon Math and Reading
Centers, said a confident stu-
dent who acquires the skills to
manage stress is better able to
achieve academically. .
Pastorok suggests the fol-
lowing methods to help stu-
dents reduce their stress lev-
els:
Set a daily study time.
Routine teaches children to
be organized, which will
reduce the level of stress. As a
parent, you can help by pro-
viding your child with a study
area that is quiet, free from
distractions and well-lighted.
This will help them concen-
trate and complete their work


in a timely manner.
Praise improvement
instead of focusing on per-
fection. If there is only
praise for the end-product
rather than the steps along
the way, it could hinder your
child's ability to be success-
ful.
Teach your children how
to learn under stress. If they
are in the middle of a test, let
them know it is OK ,to put
their pencil down and take a
deep breath. Emphasize the
"focus on what you know
rather than on what you don't
know" philosophy.
Encourage your children
to read and follow directions.
It is essential for students to
listen to and read instructions
for each assignment, as well
as during tests. Slowing down
just enough to do this will
help ensure that they are
doing what is asked of them
instead of what they think
they need to do.


Help your children man-
age their time. Remind them
not to spend too much time
on any one problem, which
may result in failure to com-
plete a test or assignment. If
they can't figure out how to
solve a problem, encourage
them to go to school early
and speak with their
teacher. Guide them to find
solutions, rather than pro-
vide them with all the
answers.
Make sure your children
have strong fundamental
skills. If they lack a basic
foundation, it may result in
huge gaps in their knowl-
edge. This may hinder their
ability to learn, and create
additional stress. Many par-
ents have turned to supple-
mental education programs
such as Kumon Math &
Reading Centers to augment
their children's skills and
help them stay one-step-
ahead at school.

SOUTH NEWS


Couple celebrates 73 years together


BY GARRY OVERBEY
ASSISTANT ENGLEWOOD EDITOR

When Winifred Haders lost
the diamond from her wed-
ding ring a few years ago, her
husband, Walter, wasted no
time replacing it and then
bowing down on one knee to
slip it on her finger.
That's love.
The Haderses, who cele-
brated their 73rd wedding
anniversary last week, count
family, religion and mutual
respect as the reasons their
marriage has lasted.
"I think it's respect for each
other's opinions," Walter said.
Winifred added: "And give
and take on both sides."
Both turned 93 last year.
"She's six weeks older,"
Walter said, followed byWimi-
fred: '"And he never lets me
forget."


Smart ones and
other ones
Walter and Winifred met
while attending grammar
school in Cleveland, Ohio.
They weren't in the same
classes, though.
"There were two groups:
the smart ones, and the other
ones," Walter said. "She was in
the smart ones."
They didn't "really get ac-
quainted" until they ran into
each other at a church bazaar
in high school, Walter said.
"She was selling chances,"
he said. "I took her home, and
that was the beginning."
They dated throughout
their last year of high school
and got married when they
were 20, on Feb. 9,1932.
They moved to the sub-
urbs, andWalter went to work
in the men's clothing busi-


ness, eventually owning his
own store. Winifred, who
stayed home and raised their
seven children, never regret-
ted being a housewife.
"With seven kids, I guess
you have to be," she said.
The family now also in-
cludes 21 grandchildren and
23 great-grandchildren.
Loving, lasting example
Through it all, they never
forgot to laugh.
When asked about the ten-
dency of couples to split these
days, Walter said divorce was
never an option in their rela-
tionship..
"Murder, yes," he dead-
panned.
"It was a different atti-
tude," Winifred said of those
days. "You didn't think of any-
thing else. You were gonna get
married, and that was it."


"Religion played a part" in
their marriage's longevity,
said daughter Sandra Andres.
"They went to church every
Sunday."
They still do. On the morn-
ing of their anniversary, they
went for the Ash Wednesday
service.
They keep family close;
they and two of their daugh-
ters live within a couple
blocks of each other.
Walter said he doesn't have
much advice for young cou-
ples starting out today.
"They have to make their
own mistakes," he said.
Their oldest daughter,
Marianne Stager, said her
parents set a loving, lasting
example for all the children.
"They weren't the kind to
say, 'Do what I say,' Mari-
anne said. "They said, 'Do as I
do.'"

Helping scrub jays and teen fitness


J.J. Andrews
BACK OF THE PACK


It's not every day a person
can help protect the environ-
ment and promote teen fit-
ness all at the same time.
That's exactly what race
organizers for the fifth annual
Scrub Jay 5K Run and Fun
Run/Walk at Oscar Scherer
State Park have done. The
race this Saturday raises
money for park projects, and
all runners 16 years old or
younger get to race for free -
and still get their T-shirt and
race goodies bag.
This is the first, time that
Russ Delaney, event organiz-
er, knows of a local race letting
teens run for free and still
receive all the amenities,
including being eligible to win
their age divisions. Delaney
said the goal is to promote
better health among our
younger residents, and hopes
many teens take advantage of
the freebie.
"This is a race they won't
want to miss," Delaney said.


"We'll have live entertain-
ment, great food, a quality
T-shirt and a wonderful loca-
tion. It's on everyone's race
calendar."
Nature run
The 3.1-mile course is
mostly hard-packed sand
.roads and trails through the
park's rare scrubby flatwoods,
home to many of Florida's
scrub jays. Runners will cross
two wooden bridges across a
creek with some shade and
grass at the finish line.
Oscar Scherer State Park is
in Osprey on Tamiami Trail.
The race starts at 8 a.m., mile
fun run at 8:30 a.m. and
race-day registration starts at
7 a.m.
It's too late for early regis-
tration, so cost is $25 for
adults and $20 for 17-year-
olds (16 and younger free,
remember). Contact the park
at 483-5956 or Delaney by
e-mail at russell.delaney@
L-3Com.com for more infor-
mation and registration
forms.
This race is the major
fund-raiser of the year for the
Friends of Oscar Scherer
Park. The group of volun-
teers lobby on the park's be-
half and raise money for pro-
jects like a handicap-accessi-
ble trail, playground equip-
ment and refurbishing of the
park's fire truck, Delaney said.
MTC racing series
This also is Manasota Track


Club's first event that's part of
the 2005 MTC/New Balance
Sarasota Racing Series. Bas-
ically, runners pile up points
based on their performance
in six area races and win
awards at the end of the
year. Other sanctioned runs
will be in April, May, August,
October and a half-marathon
(double points) still to be
determined.
Overall and master win-
ners must be MTC members,
but age-group winners do
not. Runners must complete
at least two out of the six races
in order to be in the final
results. Visit manasotatrack-
club.org for additional details.
Only the first 400 runners
receive T-shirts at Saturday's
run, and Russell expects every
one of them to be taken.
"We're expecting at least
400 runners, which is a large
turnout in Sarasota County
for racee" Delaney said. "We
feel like we're on the high end
when it comes to races and it
attracts the runners."
Plenty of free post-race
food and entertainment
doesn't hurt, either.
Look for me at the Back of
the Pack at Oscar Scherer
on Saturday, or grazing one of
the food tables.

Back of the Pack is a week-
ly running column appearing
every Wednesday. Send run-
ning-related e-mails to News
Editor J.. Andrews at: jan-
drews@venicegondolier.com.


Ultra-run at Oscar Scherer
The MTC 50K Ultra and
25K Fun Run will be Feb. 27 at
Oscar Scherer State Park in
Osprey. This ultimate dis-
tance event is longer than a
marathon at just more than
30 miles (50 kilometers), and
the "fun run" is longer than a
half-marathon at 15.5 miles.
Start time is at 7:30 a.m.
and proceeds benefit Special
Olympics of Sarasota County.
The 50K costs $45 before
Feb. 22 and $55 after, and the
25K costs $25 with an entry
deadline of Feb. 22.
Go online to manasota-
trackclub.org for more infor-
mation, or call Dave Sieg-
wald at 955-5495 or e-mail
Siegwald@Comcast.net.

motion.

Fitness challenge at YMCA hits halfway point


STAFF REPORT


Last week was Week Five
in the fitness challenge co-
sponsored by the South
County Family YMCA and
the Venice Gondolier Sun.
Of those who came back
f6r midway measurement,
74 percent were successful
at losing fat since the initial
weigh-in, losing more than 2
pounds each, on average.
Some of that was muscle loss,
which accounts for a higher
weight-loss number, probably
because those people seem
not to be doing any type of
strength training at all.
Some of these people said
that they are contemplating
joining the Y or may do some
of their own strength exercis-
es at home. Early analysis
suggests people participating
through the Y are doing a
little betterbecause they are
being held accountable for
all the components of the
program including cardiovas-
cular, stretching and strength
training. Also, they get one-
on-one coaching.
If you haven't quite gotten
into a routine, you still have
time to make a difference. If
you have found that you are
unable to motivate yourself,
consider a membership to the


YMCA, which will include
three personal coaching ses-
sions to teach you all the
basics of a well-rounded ex-
ercise program. You will also
have full access to a variety


of group exercise programs;
an Olympic-size swimming
pool, including water aero-
bics; and extra services such
as massage and personal
training.

What action do you take?
A Don't take the opponents out of
a potentially bad situation. There is
no reason that' you can take 11 tricks
when partner could do no more than
make a single raise of your overcall.
But you do have two defensive tricks
and knowledge not available to
declarer he is probably running
into a bad trump break. Pass.

What do you bid now?
A The one bid you can rule out is
two diamonds with your weak five-
card suit. That makes it a choice
between two spades and one no
trump. There is little to choose
between the two, but we have a
slight preference for the spade raise.
Q 3 Vulnerable, you hold:
6J97 Partner opens the bidding with one
spade. What do you respond?
A We would not make a forcing
raise in spades with this balanced
hand. Our choice is two no trump.
However, if, in your methods, that is a
forcing raise in spades, we would tem-
porize with a bid of two diamonds.

What do you bid now?
A From a hand that started out
with mixed prospects, you now want
to investigate a possible slam even
though partner has not yet shown
great strength (three clubs could be
passed!). Start an orderly investiga-
tion with a cue-bid of three hearts. A
favorable response from partner
could have you off and running.

What is your opening bid?
A Before deciding on your opening
bid, consider what you would do if
you opened one club and partner did
anything other than respond with a
bid in a minor. Two diamonds would
be a reverse, and your hand is not
quite good enough. The solution is to
open one diamond, giving you an
easy two-club rebid.
Q 5 Both vulnerable, you hold:
610853 vKJ OAK10543 4K
Partner opens the bidding with a
weak two spades. What do you
respond?
A First, do not even think of look-
ing f6r slam. Partner's preempt
. denies two aces, so even five spades
would be too high. Bid four spades.
Vulnerable, partner should have a
good suit, but don't be surprised if,
on a heart lead, even a 10-trick con-
tract fails.
