City Manager Nlartr Black hopes to relocate
Venice's oldest building to city property to
preserve more of the city's history.

District do
The Lady Indians hope to
keep their season alive.


For more than a year Ven-
ice Historic Conmmission has
been working on tax incen-
tives designed to lure home-
owners into preserving build-
ings connected to the ciry's
history.,
That future ordinance may
not be enough.
Only homes registered on
the Venice list of historic
buildings are protected from
demolition. Despite dozens


upon dozens of potential can-
didates, only four buildings
are registered in the voluntary
program.
The city's oldest building,
built in 1896. isn't registered
and was recently sold without
any protection from demoli-
tion. Closing of the deal is
planned for next week and
the buyer wants to replace it
with a new, larger home.
And the 811 Laguna Drive
home isn't alone. Venice's
third oldest building, at 822
Madrid Ave., built in 1915,


and one of the original

"I'm a little amazed all ot'a
sudden we have three histor-

John Moore said. "We need to
start looking into this imme-
diately... We need to make it
a priority."

City is questioning if
Herb Levine has the
legal right to chal-
lenge the planning
commission's height
ruling.

BY J J. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

The president of the
Venice Taxpayers League
may have no right to com-
plain at least legally.
Herb Le\ine has been
given until next Thursday
to explain in writing why
allowing a four-story build -


ing in downtown Venice
causes him to be a "person
aggrieved by the decision."
If the longtime critic of
city hall cannot do so, then
his challenge of a Venice
Planning Commission spe-
cial exception for a 44-foot
build ing at 215-217 \VW. Ven-
ice Ave. must be thrown
out.
Being a city resident
should be enough for him
to complain, according to
Levine.
"But most of all, I'm a
citizen of the U.SA. and
the state of Florida peri-
od," Levine said. "And now
you tell me I'm not allowed
to complain because of a


technicality What's next? I
can't complain because I'm
not wearing black shoes
when I drop off the letter?"
City Attorney Bob An-
derson would not elabo-
rate on his written opin-
ion. Levine has until next
week to explain why this
four-story building will
aggrievee" him, while the
property owners and their
attorney, Greg Roberts,
have the same amount of
time to explain why Le-
vine has no right to ap-
peal.
Once he's reviewed
those written statements,

Will voters buy a


10-year school levy?

The Sarasota County School Board is backing a
proposal that would keep property tax levies for
schools alive for 10 years, instead of the current
four.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


S.,I's not a new proposal, but
one the Sarasota County
School Board believes would
promote better long-range
planning' and budgeting:
allowing school boards the
option to seek voter approval
of an additional one mill in
property, taxes for up to 10
years instead of four.
It's part of this year's leg-
islative platform adopted by
the board in anticipation of
the legislative session that
begins next month.
The proposal is a stream-
lined version of one floated
last year by Carl Weinrich,
leader of Citizens For Better
Schools, that would give local
boards more taxing authority.
That proposal encouraged
the extension of locally ap-
proved taxes from four to 10
years. It also gave school
boards the power to extend
the tax. The trial balloon got
shot down before the school
board even had a chance to
respond to it.
The board members even-
tually went on record in sup-
port of the concept of extend-
ing the length of a referen-
dum. Now, they've refined
their stand further in sup-
port of the tax extension, but
only with voter approval.
Bills drafted
To make it happen the
Legislature would have to
pass enabling legislation.
It's a proposal that has legs,


according to Rep. Nancy De-
tert, R-Venice.
Detert had been working
on a bill at the request of the
Sarasota County School
Board to extend the village
levy with voter approval. But
Pinellas County legislators
beat her to
the punch.
House Bill
613, by Rep.
Charlie Jus-
tice, a Dem-
ocrat, and
Senate Bill
606 by Sen.
Dennis Jones,
Detert a Republican,
were intro-
duced in January and referred
to their respective commit-
tees. Detert signed onto HB
613 as a co-sponsor.
"I think it will pass the
Legislature because it only
allows county school boards
to hold a referendum," Detert
said. "We are giving the peo-
ple a chance to vote it up or
down. It is in step with our
belief in local control. De-
cisions are best made where
they are made closest to the
people.
"The school board can't
roll it (extend a referendum)
over themselves. They won't
have to. They'll have greater
flexibility under a maximum
10-year period," she said.
If the bill passes, the ball
will be in the district's court.
"It will be a harder sell at
the local end," Detert said.

Nokomis resident Robert
Burrus and other Sorrento
Ranches residents started the
petition while protesting the
development of 46 acres next
to their property and along
Pinebrook Road. They have
since abandoned the peti-

though Venice residents sup-

"We tested the waters,"
Burrus said. "The response

2A VENICE GONDOLIER SUN FRIDAY, FEB. 18, 2005


SUN PHOTO BY JEFF TAVARES, jtavares@venicegondolier.com
One of the original homes built by the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, this 1927 building
with five bedrooms is listed at more than $4 million. There's room for five new houses if the
building is sold and.demolished.


PHOTO COURTESY OF VENICE ARCHIVES
Here's what Venice's oldest home, built in 1896, looked like in the 1950s before being moved to
811 Laguna Drive. City Manager Marty Black said the new owner will donate the house to
Venice if someone else pays to move it.


HOME from page I A
are no delays.
The breaks
In order to get the local
property tax breaks, the home
must be on Venice's local his-
toric registry.
This isn't attractive as it
might sound. Registering a
home as historic limits what
types of renovations can be
done, requires material ap-
proval by Venice Historical
Commission and prevents a
home from being demol-
ished.
That final part is what
Dorothy Korwek, director of
the Venice Archives, wants to
see the most.
"They have to prove they
caijt save the house (with reg-
istered homesi" Korwek said.


"The way it is now, we have to
prove it's historic and hope
(for the best)."
Oldest home
City Manager Marty Black
has been consulting with staff
for two weeks about the La-
guna Drive home. Last Friday,
the new owner contacted
Black and offered to donate
the 1896 structure to the city
if Venice finds a way to move
it.
The new owner's conversa-
tion centered on how he did-
n't want to destroy the old
building. There are no imme-
diate plans for demolition,
according to Black's conver-
sation with the new owner.
The city manager hopes to
use some combination of city
funds and private donations
to move and preserve the old


home.
"He has an interest in
donating it to someone who
would preserve it," Black said.
"We've already talked about
moving it to a spot on city
property. ... We're not set up
to fund and preserve those
types of structures, but we're
certainly willing to work on
it."
Historic Commission chair
Janice Fawn plans to speak at
Tuesday's city, council meet-
ing and encourage them to
step in on the 1896 home.
Korwek has inspected the
home and believes it can be
moved without damaging its
integrity, and the Historic
Commission will have a spe-
cial meeting at 2 p.m. Sat-
urday to tour and evaluate the
building.
The most popular idea


tossed around by the Historic
Commission was to relocate
the pioneer-style home to the
new beach park, which used
to be the Island Wastewater
Treatment Plant. Concept
plans for construction of the
7-acre park are up for council
approval in April.
Black will not endorse that
location because of hurricane-
risks. Much of that area along
the beach is nearly uninsur-
able, he said, which is why the
city is taking a minimalist
approach with the new park.
Other buildings
The future of the other two
historic homes remains un-
certain.
Korwek reported to the
Historic Commission the
1915 home of one of the city's
original settlers. George Hi-


gel, is up for sale at 822
Madrid Ave. for $680,000. This
home has already been relo-
cated once.
The building at 605 W.
Venice Ave. is much larger
and has been on the market
for a while now, listed,at more
than $4 million. Current own-
ers have placed stipulations
on preservation of the over-
sized 1927 house, causing lit-
tle interest.
There are five lots to the
West Venice Avenue property,
meaning someone eventually
will want to replace the 80-
year-old house with five sin-
gle-family homes, Korwek
said.
This was one reason the
city manager and council
asked the Historic Commis-_
sion last September to inves-
tigate purchase and preserva-


tion options, but no action
has been taken.
Local resident Don O'Con-
nell owns several historic
apartment buildings built in
the 1920s that he rents. He
investigated relocating the
1896 single-family home to
one of his vacant lots.
It's a beautiful old, house,
he said, but entirely too small
as a rental unit at only 1,456
square feet of living space. A
vacant lot on Venice island all
by itself is worth at least
$300,000, O'Connell said.
"I just couldn't do it. It's too
small," O'Connell said. "It
wouldn't make (economic)
sense. ... I hope someone
steps in to save it."

VHS sports official resigns under cloud


Allegations surfaced from the 1970s that the
school's assistant athletic director had sex with
male students. He reportedly has admitted it.


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


AVenice High School assis-
tant athletic director has
resigned amid allegations he
had sex with boys decades
ago.
James LaMorte Sr., 62, has
"made admissions" during
questioning by investigators,
according to a police press re-
lease. However, he has not
been arrested or charged in
connection with the inci-
dents.
LaMorte, a 30-year teach-
ing veteran and former swim
coach, has been put on ad-
ministrative leave, a Sarasota
County School District official
said.
"The police came .to the
school (Tuesday), approach-
ed the principal and told her
what the allegations were
against the teacher," Sarasota
County School District spok-
eswoman Sheila Weiss said.
"The teacher was not in
school yet, so Candy (Mil-
lington, VHS principal) called
him at home and placed him
immediately on administra-
tive leave and gave him direc-
tions not to come back on
campus pending the out-
come of the investigation."


Retired
Weiss said LaMorte also
filed a retirement letter effec-
tive at the close of business on
February 16.
LaMorte was hired by the
district Feb. 25, 1975, Weiss
said.
Weiss said that according
to Scott Lempe, the district's
human resources director, all
of LaMorte's annual teacher
evaluations were "positive."
Despite the seriousness of
the allegations, LaMorte may
never be prosecuted.
Derek Byrd, a Sarasota
attorney who specializes in
sex crimes said it is possible
that LaMorte will not be
charged for any of the alleged
crimes because the statute of
limitations has run out.
Venice attorney

Venice attorney Robert
Harrison made the arrange-
ments for one of the victims
to talk to police.
"He came in and said
something was bothering
him and then he told me,"
Harrison said. "This had been

20 years."

swim coach, has filed a retirement letter from Venice High
School amid allegations he had sex with male students
decades ago.


client waited so long to come
forward.
"I think there was certainly
the, embarrassment factor," he
said. "I mean, here you are in,
high school and this happens,,
it's humiliating and it keeps
building as you get older, the
humiliation."
Harrison said his client
had no motive other than
wanting to purge his memo-
ries of the incident.
"He's.not looking for a civil
suit, or money, or anything
like that," Harrison said. "He
just doesn't want to read
about the same thing hap-
pening to somebody else. It
was like getting an 800-pound
gorilla off his shoulders."


The allegations
According to the Venice
Police Department press
release, detectives are investi-
gating acts of sexual battery
on numerous children be-
tween the ages of 13-17
allegedly committed by La-
Morte.
One accuser, now an adult,
came forward and told investi-
gators that LaMorte molested
him.
Several other accusers, all
adults, also have come for-
ward and told similar stories,
according to one source close
to the investigation. All the al-
leged victims claim to have
been molested by LaMorte.
The incidents allegedly hap-


opened in or around 1978, the
report states.
LaMorte "apologized" dur-
ing his interrogation about
the accusations, according to
the press release.
The allegations are still un-
der investigation by police
and the state attorney's office.
Apples and oranges?
On its face, the case is sim-.
ilar to another high-profile
sex case involving a well-
known local educator -
though with two significant
differences.
Former Garden Ele-
mentary School principal
Mark Cook, 53, was convicted
of two counts of capital sexu-
al battery May 2, 2003, after a
week-long trial and four-hour
jury deliberation.
The differences are, first,
Cook never admitted to mo-
lesting children as LaMorte
reportedly has, and second,
the age of the alleged victims.
tThe allegations (against
Cook) were that the victims
were less than 12 years old,
and there is no statute of lim-
itations under 12 years old,"
Byrd, Cook's trial, attorney
said. "However, if the victim is
12 or older, there is a statute
of limitations that would
apply."
That was then, this is now.
Byrd said the statute of
limitations when LaMorte al-
legedly committed the crimes
was four years (it still is). He


also said under today's law,
the clock on the statute of
limitations does not start run-
ning until the alleged victim is
18 years old.
"But back then," Byrd said,
"they didn't have that."
The state attorney's office
is reportedly reviewing limita-.
tion statutes as they pertain
to sexual battery involving
children.
"If they can prove one of
the victims was less than 12
years old when he was
abused," Byrd said, "the state
would not be barred from
prosecuting the case."
Cook case
Cook was arrested Feb. 19,
2002, and charged with mo-
lesting three students under
12 years old in 1977, 1978 and
1981.
In June 2003, Sarasota ,
County Circuit Judge Lee E.
Haworth sentenced dook to
mandatory 25-year sentences
for each count, the sentences
to run consecutively.
With the stacked sen-.
tences, Cook will have to;
serve 50 years before he is eli-.
gible for parole. Said another
way, Cook would be 101 years
old before he is eligible for
parole.
Cook currently resides in
the Polk County Correctional
Institution.

Day at the beach: Whiff and a cough


BY'GAVIN OFF
STAFF WRITER

For two years, Stump Pass
Beach State Park ranger Chris
Angel has driven his green
Polaris 4x4 up and down the
1.5 miles of park beach.
He'd check on skim-board-
ers and chat with visitors,
pick up the occasional piece
of trash.
But recently his trips have
taken on an entirely new pur-
pose.
Within the last week, An-
gel estimates he has collected
between 800 and 1,000 dead
fish, loading them by the
hundreds into the back of his
4x4 and dumping them in
the woods, away from visitors.
"We don't have to (pick up
the fish), but we do it because
it looks good to the visitors,"
Angel said. "I don't think I
would want to come to the
beach arid see a lot of dead
fish."
Most of the fish Angel has
rounded up were mullet and
sheepshead, joined by the
isolated redfish and grouper.
According to Mote Marine
Laboratory, a red tide bloom
stretching from Sarasota to
Fort Myers has caused spo-


radic fish kills. The hardest hit
areas are around Englewood
and Venice.
"You guys are definitely in
the thick of things," said
Nadine Slimak, a Mote
spokeswoman.
'Alittle tickle'
Fish kills and irritation were
also reported on Gasparilla
Island, with conditions deteri-
orating in recent days.
Between the sounds of
tumbling waves and squawk-
ing gulls, irritated throats
coughed as red tide swamped
area beaches this week.
People who stayed out long
enough noticed their nostrils
begin to burn and their eyes
begin to water.
Angel's nose even began
to bleed.
"It gets in my eyeballs; it gets
in my throat," Angel said. "You
can hear people hacking,
coughing. But I really haven't
heard much complaint."
Cars continued to file ingo
the park's parking lot despite
the red tide.
Five hundred to 600 people
a day, in fact, have recently
taken to the beach at the state


and shark tooth collectors
covered the beach, although
they were coughing a little bit.
Friends and part-time area
residents Judy Noteboom and
Joan Buttery arrived at the
park around 11:30 a.m. They
spent several hours on the
beach and even walked down
to Stump Pass, where both
said the irritation worsened.
"It's not chasing us off the
beach," Noteboom said.
"It's just a little tickle,"
added Buttery.
Slimak said the red tide
bloom is expected to continue
south.
She advised residents to
watch the marine forecast
and travel to the beach only
when the winds are blowing
offshore. That would lesson
red tide's impact, she said.
As for Angel, he'll no longer
have to worry about red tide.
Angel spent his last day
working in the Manasota Key
sun Tuesday.
He's transferring to
Ochlockonee River State Park
in the Panhandle.
"I'll miss this place," Angel
said.

State parks officials shut out of closed-door corridor talks


Sarasota County recently bought the 12.4-mile
rail corridor between State Road 72 and Venice.
A deal to recoup the $11.75 million purchase
price hinges on talks with the Florida
Department of Transportation.


BY JACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


State environmental and
parks officials have been
barred from closed-door
negotiations between Sara-
sota County and the Florida
Department of Transpor-
tation over a joint manage-
ment plan for the old rail-
road corridor that passes
through Oscar Scherer State
Park.
On Tuesday, parks officials
in Tallahassee told the
Pelican Press they would
make their list of concerns
about either a future light-
rail commuter system or
road known to county offi-
cials in an effort to ensure


that "the integrity of the
park" remains intact.
"I have spoken with (De-
puty' Couinty'Administrator)
D avid d
Bullock and
been assured
our concerns
will be
heard," said
Albert .
Gregory, a
state parks
planner who
will attempt Ley
to monitor
the negotiations that could
result in a transfer of owner-
ship from the county to the
state.
Parks officials are worried
that a busy light-rail or limited


access road could disturb
endangered scrub jays and
other wildlife, and limit the
ability of rangers to conduct
controlled burns that are
necessary to keep the land in
pristine condition.
"There has been no agree-
ment to our knowledge about
this multi-use corridor," said
Matt Mitchell, a spokesman
for the parks service. "We
want to be in on discussions
and are-confident our codn-'
cerns will be heard. I just
don't know how yet."
The reality
In December, the county
paid $11.75 million to buy
the 12.4-mile corridor from
CSX Transportation through
the Trust for Public Lands. A
linear trail-for county bikers,
hikers and joggers has been
in the works for 15 years, and
is a critical factor in the nego-
tiations.
State. transportation offi-
cials have agreed to reimburse
$11.75 million to the county


for an agreement that would
allow 70 feet of the 100-foot-
wide corridor to be used for
future multi-modal purposes,
such as a light-rail commut-
er train or a
road.
On Feb. 9,
the county
commission
briefly con-
sidered a
request from
State Parks: .
Director
Michael Thaxton
Bullock to
"participate in developing the
plan" and "be informed of
meetings at which the plan or
future use of the corridor will
be discussed."
Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton conceded he was opening
a can of worms when he
raised the subject of state
parks officials wanting a seat
at the table in negotiations
about how the county can
build a rails-to-trails linear
park next to a multi-modal


transportation facility.
"The state parks staff wants
and needs to be heard," he
said. "We don't have a public
hearing arena for that. What
does it mean? Will people.
have to write letters? When
will the management plan
come before the county com-
mission?"
County Administrator Jim
Ley responded that there is
"no normal process" for-the'
negotiations. :.
"The reality is that the
county commission will be
kept to speed," he said. "Get-
ting feedback helps us.
Ultimately, there will be a
master plan for the trail and
public meetings."
Second thoughts
Last June, before taking
ownership of the corridor,
the county commission envi-
sioned recapturing the pur-
chase price when it autho-
rized a joint participation
sales agreement with the
state transportation agency


for future use of the old rail-
road corridor.
Second thoughts about
terms of the agreement began
to surface when several
commissioners questioned
"future multi-modal uses"
language contained in a con-
tract attachment and suggest-
ed it could restrict the coun-
ty's ability to properly con-
struct a trail.
Exhibit "A" of the agree-
ment states: "It is understood'
by both parties that any
recreational trail built in the
corridor must be constructed
to one side of the corridor
leaving at least 70 percent of
the corridor for future multi-
modal purposes."
The state has put $4 mil-
lion into an escrow account
for purchase of the corridor.
It will continue to make an-
nual deposits over the next
two fiscal years, until such
time as $11.75 million has
accrued. The county will have
to invoice the state if it wants
to accept the money.


Artificial reef cost already dropping


The city still plans to appeal a state
decision that its artificial reefs must
be made of limestone instead of concrete.


BY JJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR


Quotes on how much a
ton of limestone cost have"
already been cut in half since
last week.
City Manager Marty Black
still is hoping for a better deal.
Venice has to build 7.3
acres of artificial reef after
restocking Venice Beach with
sand this summer. Potential
costs have skyrocketed be-
cause state permits are requir-
ing limestone instead of con-
crete, which is what the city
used in the past.
Concrete would -be free or


only a minimal cost because
it would be from demolition
jobs. Donating the materials
to Venice would save a com-
pany landfill costs.
Limestone costs anywhere
from $35 to $80 per ton, based
on early quotes the city has
received. Multiply that by the
16,000 tons of artificial reef
needed, and there are at least
560,000 reasons why the city
would prefer to use concrete.
Unfortunately, that deci-
sion will be mostly up to the
Florida Department of En-
vironmental Protection and
the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers.

"It's kind of like we're all at
the dafice, but we're not on
the dance floor," Black said.
"This is between the. DEP
and the Army Corps."
Black still has not been
told why limestone must be
used, despite previous artifi-
cial reefs following beach
renourishment jobs. Beach
renourishment replaces sand
that has been washed out into
the Gulf of Mexico, 'and the
local beach is estimated to
have lost at least 40 feet last
summer alone.
Awarding of the bid by the
Army Corps has been pushed
back to March 2. The project
is expected to be finished by
Aug. 9, despite running into
sea turtle nesting season.
An additional 130-160 feet
of beach will added once the
project is finished. Sand is

being dredged from five dif-
ferent spots nearly 8 miles
offshore of Siesta and Casey
keys.
Exact locations of the three
artificial reefs will not be
known until the renourish-
ment project is finished. The
permit then gives the city six
months to build the reefs, fol-
lowed by monitoring over the
next five years to make sure
the reefs do not drift.
No matter what, the city
manager wants to get at least
a portion of the reef material
to be concrete instead of
limestone.
"The reef we put out there
10 years ago is thriving,'" Black
said.

PMBS head resigns

On deck for only 10 months, the former PMBS
boss said he was tired and decided the PMBS
board needed a different kind of executive
director.


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


Pelican Man's Bird Sanc-
tuary Executive Director
Todd Watson has resigned
abruptly after 10 months on
the job.
"I'm tired and have chosen
to leave with a good deal of
regret," Watson said. "I had
hoped to be here for at least
five years."
He said he has no immedi-
ate plans. Watson said he was
not fired by the PMBS Board
of Directors.
Watson started at PMBS
April 15, 2004. His last day at
the sanctuary was Wed-
nesday.
"In the last two to three
months, I decided that the
board needs a different kind
of executive director," Watson

PELICAN MAN
The Pelican Man's Bird
Sanctuary was started by the
late Dale Shields, the "Pelican
Man," who began rescuing
the endangered brown peli-
can in 1981.
Shields died Jan. 2, 2003.
In 1988, the City of Sarasota
leased the Pelican Man's Bird
Sanctuary Inc., 2 acres of land
on City Island for $1 per year.
Today the Pelican Man's Bird
Sanctuary includes a rehabili-
tation center, hospital, rehabil-
itation habitats, a flight train-
ing facility, baby bird nursery
and an aviary.
Volunteers for the Pelican
Man's rescue team respond to
about 6,000 rescue calls each
year. Since 1985, more than
80,000 area birds and other
wildlife have been treated.
The organization includes
about 24 staff members and
more than 300 community
volunteers who contribute
more than 30,000 hours of
service per year.
The work is supported by the
contributions of corporations
and foundations as well as
12,000 members worldwide.

said. "I just learned some
things that would not allow
me to stay, so there was no
other option for me, person-
ally."
He would not elaborate.
Watson said the board
never came to him with any
criticism.
"There was no indication
they were unhappy," he said.
"I had an evaluation three
months ago and it went well."
Hired to fix it
As chronicled in an in-
depth Venice Gondolier Sun
series last year, when Wat-
son came on board, the
PMBS was under heavy fire
from current and former
employees who claimed'
animals were being mis-
treated.
Many of those who were
not terminated by the prior
executive director resigned.
Five people were fired after
presenting then-PMBS Exec-
utive Director Mona Schon-
brunn with a list of 25 com-
plaints about mismanage-
ment and mistreatment of
animals.
The five, along with about
35 other staff members and
volunteers, were let go after
Schonbrunn read the letter.
They filed a lawsuit, which
has been resolved, according
to Watson.
Watson had his work cut
out for him.
In the beginning he said,
"We are making lots of
changes. Everything needs to
be recreated from the equip-
ment to how it's stored."
Watson did make some
changes at PMBS.
"The place is running well
in terms of wildlife care,"
Watson said Wednesday.
There is a licensed veteri-
narian at the hospital and all
the proper permits for wildlife
rehabilitation have been ob-
tained, Watson said.
Watson had high praise for
PMBS staffers and volunteers.

STAFF REPORT


The annual Great Backyard
Bird Count begins today
(Friday) and continues
through Monday, Feb. 21.
Anyone can participate by
counting birds at a favorite
location on any or all of the
count days and entering the
tallies at birdsource.org
/GBBC. Reports will be ac-
cepted through March 1.
The bird count is a joint
project of the Audubon So-
ciety and the Cornell Lab of
Ornithology. It's sponsored by
Wild Birds Unlimited, Cornell
Information Technologies
and Natural Resources Con-
servation Service.
Because bird populations
are constantly in flux, the goal
of the GBBCis to take a snap-
shot of North American bird
populations. It doesn't matter
whether you identify, count
and report the five species
coming to your backyard
feeder or the 75 species you
see during a day's outing to a
wildlife refuge.
Your data can help answer
many questions:
How will this winter's


snow and cold temperatures
influence bird populations?
Where are the winter
finches and other species?
Will late winter move-
ments of many songbird and
waterfowl species be as far
north as they were last year?
The data that you collect
will becombined with Christ-
mas Bird Count and Project
FeederWatch data to give an
immense picture of winter
birds. Each year these data
are collected makes them
more important and mean-
ingful.
Several aspects 6 the GBBC
are new this year:
It's easy this year to down-
load tally sheets to print out
in advance and mark up dur-
ing .the count. .Go to gbbc.

After you've entered your
data, you'll have the option to

twice. ... Either one of them
will run afoul of the (state)
constitution."
Both cases Anderson refers
to involve what is now known
as Venetian Golf & River Club
but more than five years ago
was called the Henry Ranch
property. One petition sought
to reverse the annexation,
and the second wanted to


change how annexations are
handled.
Anderson won both cases,
and then won the appeals.
The city attorney issued his
latest opinion in response to
City Manager Marty Black
asking about the legality of
such a petition by Burrus.
Future annexations
The Nokomis resident is
not questioning whether Ven-


ice is abiding by state regula-
tions for annexation.
Actually, it appears as if the
city is, and that's what con-
cerns Burrus. He believes
every resident within 1,000
feet of a proposed annexation
should be notified by U.S.
mail at least two weeks prior
to any annexation hearing.
State laws do not require
this type of notification when
an individual property owner


requests annexation.
"Right now, the situation
is, the city can annex proper-
ties without notifying anyone
else," Burrus said. "There's no
duty on the part of the city to
notify any surrounding prop-
erty owners, whether they're
in the city or county"
According to public,rec-
ords, Venice only has two
annexations pending.
The city manager's office is


handling preannexation ne-
gotiations for the nearly 400-
acre VICA-Ritchey property
along Border Road. Owners
applied Nov. 13, 2003, and
Black has been negotiating
with the trustee, James
Ritchey, and attorney Jeff
Boone.
The other annexation is off
Pinebrook Road near the Villa
Lago property, which Burrus
had been challenging. Seven


different owners applied last
December to annex 40 acres
at Curry Lane and R&F Ranch
Road.
Black also is handling
these negotiations, W which are
at the Development Review
Committee stage. Neither
proposal has a date for pre-
sentation to planning com-
mission and city council.

Please see AMEND, 7A


APPEAL from page lA


Anderson will issue an opin-
ion on whether Levine can
appeal the planning commis-
sion's decision to let the West
Venice Avenue building have
an additional 9 feet.
The first floor would be a
pair of retail shops, and three
condominiums would make
up the second through fourth
floors.
"I question whether Her-
bert L. Levine meets the legal
definition of an aggrieved
person," Anderson wrote. "If
Mr. Levine is not a 'person
aggrieved by the decision,'
then he lacks the required
standing and the appeal must


be dismissed."
Roberts could be reached
for comment.
Changing policy
This is a major reason why
city council and City Manager
Marty Black want to change
how height issues are decided
in Venice. Black said in an
interview the proposed "con-
ditional use" method of
height approval discussed by
the planning commission
Tuesday means city council
would have the final say, not
the commission.
None of this has to do with
the planning commission's


performance, Black said.
Residents have pointed out
that elected officials should
ultimately be responsible for
these decisions, and city
council agrees.
I Approval of heights in
excess of 35 feet would not
be guaranteed with condi-
tional use, and there would
be additional landscape,
buffering and design re-
quirements for heights be-
yond three stories.
Current city laws about
height let the planning com-
mission issue final approval;
then, challengers must ap-
peal to city council; pay a


$300 fee and meet the legal
standard of being somehow
injured by the decision.
Commission members
have only denied one out of
six requests for additional
height since 1999.
What's happening in the
Levine appeal is another ex-
ample of why there should be
a change, Black said.
"This is one reason why
we're trying to implement this
from a council perspective,"
Black said. "From an opera-
tions direction and a policy
direction, council has already
made it known they want to
hear these decisions."


Height ban
One directive from Tues-
day's planning commission
meeting will not be followed,
according to the city manager.
Commission members mo-
tioned for Planning and Zon-
ing Director Tom Slaughter to
let the height maximum ordi-
nance "lag" behind the condi-
tional use proposal. Height for
properties along West Venice
Avenue between Venice Beach
and Armada Road would be
capped at 35 feet, regardless of
existing zoning, and members
fear it would take away proper-
ty rights.
That motion is one the city


manager says cannot be en-
forced. Black already has spo-
ken with Slaughter and Ven-
ice Planning Commission
chair John Osmulski, remind-
ing both that city council sets
policy and planning commis-
sion makes suggestions.
"Staff is not in a position to
respond to that (motion) be-.
cause an advisory board says,
'Nah, go slower,' "Black said.
"We're going to respond to
the policymakers. That's city
council and that's what
they're there for."

was instrumental in helping
pass the 2002 referendum, a

It was the first time a coun-
ty in Florida voted in a refer-

the district operating budget.
The levy expires in 2006, but
school board members have
been talking about extending
it since last year.
CBS's Weinrich agreed
there has to be a better way to
handle referendums.
"It makes sense to me to

said.

done an excellent job of
spending it for the intended

"But to think you have to
do this every four years this
is very tiring on the social cap-

rich said.
A better way
School board member Dr.
Carol Todd believes the refer-

tool to help stabilize district
funding.
"What it really does is en-
able the district to seek sus-

tainable funding from voters
to build capacity within the
district for programs kids
need," Todd said.
"It's necessary so you don't
build and then cut programs.
If you're not careful, you can
find yourself boxed in that
cycle.
"Before the two-year refer-
endum was passed in 1990 we
had four consecutive years of
budget cuts to the tune of $20
million-$30 million. Those
were devastating cuts made
in all areas of the budget,"
Todd said.
"I think there is support for
the extension throughout the
state. Florida ranks in the bot-
tom 10 states when .it comes
to education funding, and we
have for many years. This pro-
posal gives the local' school
board autonomy to design

Noway
Some taxpayer advocates
aren't buying it.
Ever since voters passed
the referendum in March
2002, Norm Lupo, with Tax-
payers for Better Schools (an
education committee of the
Venice Taxpayers League) has
made it his mission to moni-
tor school .board spending
and policies involving tax dol-
lars.
Lupo doesn't like the
idea.
"It's ludicrous," Lupo said.


"This is a major issue."
"I think it's healthy that
people are allowed to vote fre-
quently. I don't know if this
proposal to extend referen-
dums serves the district well."
There's a big trade-off,
Lupo said.
"It's a roll of the dice. Voters
might find it palatable to vote
for a referendum that lasts
only four years, but not 10
years. And who's to say that
extra funds won't be allocated
in the future by the federal or
state government?
"If state lawmakers were
considering extra funds for
Sarasota County, but saw we


had a 10-year referendum in
place, maybe they would say
you don't need it now and
give the funds to someone
else," Lupo said.
"There's too many vari-
ables that would lock us in. I
don't think it's healthy to ask
voters to commit to a 10-year-
long referendum. They might
even find a different mecha-
nism to fund education be-
fore the referendum expired,"
he said. "Too many things can
change."

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


through May 27. Hours are 10
a.m.-4 p.m., Monday through
Thursday, and 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
Saturday, except holiday
weekends. The History Cen-
ter is located at 701 North
Tamiami Trail in Sarasota.

toms from flu-like illness,"
said, Dr. Sandra MacLeod, the
health department's medical
executive director. "When
children are immunized

Lady Indians win opener


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Vikes need

more home

grown

The Venice Vikings are
struggling both on the field
and at the gate.
While the local minor
league football team had a
decent crowd show up for its
season opener last month
against the Bradenton Glad-
iators, the past two home
dates at Powell-Davis
Stadium have been disap-
pointing.
For one, the weather has
been on the cool side, holding
down crowds.
The Viking staff has been
doing its best to attract people
with pregame food giveaways,
free T-shirts and on-field half-
time activities.
But there are two areas the
Vikes must improve on to get
the gate.
One would be to have
more Venice players on the
team. Nothing against the
guys from Sarasota, but local
folks would like to see more
former Indians on the
squad.
The other area is winning.
Venice is 0-4 through its first
four Southern States Foot-
ball League games. The
Vikings have been blown
out twice
If the Vikings can start
winning, it can do wonders
all the way around.
The Vikings are away at
the Fort Pierce Fire this
Saturday. Then there's an-
other road game Feb. 26 at
the Cape Coral Fear. Venice
returns home March 5 against
the division leading St. Peters-
burg Sharks.

The FHSAA needs to do
something about its Girls
Weightlifting Finals at De-
Land. It's either change the
date or change the location.
The problem centers
around the meet taking place
during Speedweeks at Day-
tona. Since DeLand is be-
tween Daytona and Orlando,
there is an extreme shortage
of accommodations along
the corridor.
Venice High coach Nancy
Tessier tells a harrowing tale
of staying in a filthy and
seedy m6tel last weekend.
Ugh.
Moving the weightlifting
finals up a week could work.
Most of the Speedweek crowd
wouldn't be in the area yet. If
they want to keep them the
second Saturday of February,
the FHSAA is better off mov-
ing the meet to Lakeland or.
Gainesville.

When a school hosts a
district tournament or re-
gional game, the politically
correct thing to do these days
is set a hospitality room for
coaches, referees and media.
It would include a number of
snacks, drinks and dessert
items.
Venice High had some-
what of a hospitality table
set up for Wednesday's dis-
trict tournament, but it was
clearly not diverse or ample.
Pete Dombroski simply
needs to put more food on
the table.
And when we say it's for
coaches, we're not talking
about football coaches, who
did a good job of raiding the
table. Heck, all that was left
were scraps by the time boys
head basketball coach Tom
McLaughlin got there.


The Venice High girls bas-
ketball team was far from
putting it all together in its
Class 5A Region 3 opener
Thursday night at the Teepee,.
but the Lady Indians played
well enough in spurts to post
a 60-54 victory over Fort
Myers.
With the win, Venice (22-6)
advances to the region semi-
finals, which is further than
last year's team made it.
The Lady Indians were
upset in their region opener a
year ago.
Venice will play host to
Clearwater at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
The Lady Tornadoes, who
have already defeated the
Lady Indians this season,
advanced by beating Boca
Ciega Thursday night.
Venice got 22 points from
guard Natalie Gaudreau and
13 from center Lisa Hough in
its win over Fort Myers (16-10).
It appeared Venice would
win handily against Fort
Myers, but the Lady Green
Wave made a fourth quarter


run that made the Lady
Indians sweat.
Venice led by 17 points
after three quarters (56-39),
but full-court pressure took
its toll on the Lady Indians.
Fort Myers scored the first
eight points, six by Ronisha
Isaac, of the fourth quarter to
close to within 56-47.
It would get even hairier
for Venice, as Fort Myers cut it
to 57-53 after buckets by
Jamilla Brooks and Fatima
Williams with three minutes
remaining.
"We couldn't get the ball
in," Venice coach Joe Di-
Giacomo said. "They were a
little quicker, and we were a
little tired."
"They played total denial,"
assistant Snake Halbert add-
ed. "We had to make a switch
and they were able to take
advantage."
The Lady Indians, out-
scored 15-4 in the final peri-
od, were able to stagger home
by hitting 50 percent of their
free throws down the stretch.
Hough made 1-of-2 to make
it 58-53 and Gaudreau did the
same to make it 59-53.


Williams sank 1-of-2 free
throws to cut it to 59-54 with
27 seconds. Gaudreau got the
lead back out to six with a free
throw.
Venice broke a tight ball-
game (35-30 at the half) with
a 21-9 spurt in the third
quarter. Gaudreau had the
hot hand scoring nine of
her points there.
But just as quickly as
Venice built it, Fort Myers
evaporated it.
"We had no emotion,"
DiGiacomo said. "Every time
we thought we had it, they
came back."

Shorthanded Indians


leave it all on floor


Venice boys basketball team takes favored
Lakewood Ranch to double overtime
before falling in district tournament.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


The Venice High boys bas-
ketball team was already
without center Dexter Jack-
son, who had broken his foot
in the team's final regular sea-
son game last week.
Things worsened Thurs-
day afternoon when guard
George Stritz came down with
a 103 degree fever.
Nothing like losing your
leading rebounder, and then
on top of it having your lead-
ing scorer taken ,out of the
lineup entering your biggest
game of the season.
But to borrow a line from
Tim McGraw, the Indians
lived like they were dying.


Venice High School's boys Indians put their hands together prior,
to returning to the court during Wednesday night's game
against Lakewood Ranch.


Playing their most inspired
ball of the season, Venice gave
it everything in the tank and
then some before falling to
Lakewood Ranch, 65-59, in
double overtime Wednesday
night at the Teepee.
Losing in the Class 5A
District semifinals means the


end of the line for the Indians.
They finish the season with a
record of 12-15.

Dexter Jackson was in a
place between purgatory and
hell Wednesday night.
The strapping center sat
on the bench in street clothes,
watching the Venice High
boys basketball team's season
end in a 65-59 loss to
Lakewood Ranch.
Jackson, the Indians lead-
ing rebounder, shot blocker
and dnker and the team's
No. 2 scorer, broke his right
foot in the final regular sea-
son game against North Port
last Friday. '
That meant he couldn't
play in Wednesday's district
semifinal.


"It's the worst feeling,"
Jackson said. "You can't help
your team."
Jackson has plenty to offer.
Coach Tom McLaughlin
got a pleasant surprise this
past fall when Jackson and
younger brother Lewis
showed up for practice.
It's not every day you get a

Athlete of the Week

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

district final against Charlotte
(15-12), which upset top-seed
Port Charlotte (20-6), 76-75,
in Wednesday's other semi-
final.
Jackson, a 6-foot, 4-inch
center, was Venice's chairman
of the boards and shot block-
er extraordinaire this season.
Stritz has been the Indians
deep drueat from 3-point land
and a pesky defender.
Without die two, the In-
dians could; have packed it in
and went out quietly. To their
credit, they bonded together
and fought to the final buzzer.
Guys like Steve Stasko,
Kalen Lyons, Billy Mehserle,
Kyle Abney, Ariel Bonilla, Jake
Bier and Ilya Vasilevskiy
stepped it up and almost
pulled it.
"I'm very proud of them,"
Venice coach Tom Mc-
Laughlin said. "Even though
we were shorthanded, we
played together as a team.
We've been playing good
basketball. Our best basket-
ball was played in February.
We've gone six overtimes."
One sore spot that came
back to haunt the Indians
-was free throw shooting.
Venice had been poor at the
charity stripe all season long,
and it came back to haunt
the Indians again Wednes-
day. Venice was a woeful 9-
for-21 while Lakewood Ranch
connected on 23 of 33 free


throw attempts.
Venice outscored Ranch
from the field, 24 field goals
.to 19.
Venice took advantage of
poor Mustang shooting to
build a 23-15 lead at the half.
"We never shoot well in
this gym," Ranch coach
Randy Smith said. "We did
enough to win the ballgame."
Stritz started the game but
only took one shot before
heading -to the. bench. He
never returned. Stasko had
six points and eight rebounds
in the first half, while Abney
had all five of his points over
the first 16 minutes.
Ranch got back into the
game in the third quarter,
outscoring Venice 17-11 to
cut it to 34-32 entering the
final quarter.
The fourth quarter went
back and forth. Bier canned
a big 3-pointer to put Venice
up 48-46 with 2:10 remaining.
Ranch tied it and following
an Indian turnover, held on
for a final game-winning
shot. The Indians defense
rose to the occasion, forcing
overtime.
Lecory Ruffin, the game's
high scorer with 19 points,
gave Ranch a 56-53 pad with
two free throws with 17 sec-
onds left in the first OT. Lyons
came up with a huge 3-point-
er with five ticks left, thus
sending the game into a sec-

front of our house," Lewis
said.
It became evident that the
Jacksons weren't only tall, but
gifted players as well.
Dexter played junior varsi-
ty ball as a freshman at
Southeast High., Then he
moved up to the Seminole
varsity team as a sophomore.
Southeast had an excellent
team that advanced to the
State Final 4 in Lakeland.
"I didn't play much
because we had a lot of
seniors, but I played," he said.
"I played in the Lakeland
Center. We lost to Jacksonville
Ribeault. The first half was
close. The second half we
pulled away."


Coming to Venice, Jackson
had to adjust to the more
deliberate style of play under
coach Tom McLaughlin. In
Venice, there's less run and
gun and more passing.
"Different coaches teach
different things," Jackson'
observed. "I learned a lot
under coach Washington at
Southeast and I learned a lot
here under coach
McLaughlin. It all helps you
game get better. I think I'm
now better at shooting and
dribbling."
Jackson averaged nine
points and eight rebounds a
game with the Indians this
season. The stats should only
improve after playing an


entire offseason with the core.
Venice will have most of its
players returning in 2005-
2006.
"I'll do everything AAU,
camp," he said. "Hopefully
we'll keep getting better."
Dexter is also looking for-
ward to Lewis moving up to
varsity next season.
"That will be nice," he said.

12A VENICE GONDOLIE N


Life Academy Day


at Venice High


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

With a school as large as
Venice High, it can be a
daunting task for students to
wade through course require-
ments and electives and oth-
erwise fit in.
Leave it to Venice High to
come up with the school
marketing event of the year.
On Thursday, students from
all grades roamed the media
center during it's second
annual Life Academy Day.
It's been a huge success,
say teachers.
The chorus was singing,
musicians were playing gui-
tars and drums, zoology
enthusiasts were showing off
snakes and spiders, and

dent, performs during the
VHS Academy Day. Wilson is
the Drama Club President.

future engineers were show-
ing off their own inventions
- all in ani effort to show
underclassmen how cool
school can be.
The event was put together
by Stephen Waite, career advi-
sor, and Marilyn Ruthardt,
small schools coordinator.
"It's a showcase to unfold
our academic programs to
underclassmen," Waite said.
"It gives them a chance to
look at the academic" pro-
grams before they have to


register for next year's classes
in March."
'"Ideally, we'd like to see
every student identified with
one of the academies," said
Ruthardt, noting that atten-
dance is voluntary.
The goal is to give mean-
ing to No Child Left Behind,
the president's education
initiative, Ruthardt said.
"Our goal is to make every
child feel included," Ruthardt
said. "Some students may
not feel like they fit in. By
identifying their interests,
and mingling with other
youth, they are not invisible.
"We don't want a single
child to fall through the
cracks. We want them to feel
like they belong."
Academic programs are
arranged into four acade-
mies: The Arts and Commun-
ication Academy, Life Science
Academy, Science Engineer-
ing Math Technology Acad-
emy, and VIBES Academy
(Venice International Busi-
ness Education Services).

Germs and hovercrafts
Teachers and students
fielded questions and show-
cased some of the more inter-
esting aspects of their favorite
academy to underclassmen.
Freshman Brittanny Bow-
man gave students a lesson in
health while she spent her
time with school nurse
Kendra Buchanan. Buchanan
borrowed a black light ma-
chine from the local hospital.
She put glitter bug potion on
students' hands that illumi-
nated under black light to,
simulate germs.
Brittany invited students to
examine themselves and pro-
vided hand sanitizer when
they finished. Earlier, Brittany
spent time at the forensics
desk chatting with Charlotte
County sheriff employees who
displayed investigation tools.
"I'm trying to balance out
whether I wait to take cours-
es related to the medical field

or forensics," Bowman said.
Justin Young, a junior, and
William Crossman, a sopho-'
more, helped steer students
toward biology, zoology and
wildlife classes at Life Science
Academy exhibits.
In the Science Engineering
Academy a group of ad-
vanced placement students
showed off the working hov-


ercraft, built as a classroom
project. They. explained to
other students that VHS
advanced placement classes
count toward college credit,
"What's really neat is we
have all these incredibly tal-
ented kids," Waite said.

OUR VIEW



State's formula for HUD grants is a dud


Perhaps Charlotte and DeSoto counties
were too optimistic thinking they
would see a windfall from $100 million
in emergency federal grants to restore afford-
able housing lost in a flurry of hurricanes last
summer. If so, it does not make recent revela-
:tions any easier to digest.
DeSoto and Charlotte were the first hit and
among the hardest hit along with those coun-
ties in the Panhandle that felt the wrath of
Hurricane Ivan. So, it was natural to hope for
a large chunk of federal money to put their
most needy residents back in their homes.
Those dreams suffered a setback when the
state of Florida released an action plan that
outlined a complicated rating system to
divide the money between all 67 counties.


The plan allows for 15 days of public inspec-
tion and comment, but local officials are any-
thing but optimistic after reviewing the 20-
page report.
"We're very disappointed," is how Robert
Hebert, Charlotte County's director of recov-
ery, put it.
Hebert and others were told privately they
could expect up to $30 million in funds to
help replace affordable housing lost in the
hurricanes and to build more affordable
housing that will be needed.
It is quite obvious by driving through De-
Soto and Charlotte counties, reading the clas-
sified ads and talking with Realtors that there
is a severe shortage of rental units for anyone
making the median income. The number of


"Hiring Now" signs in front of local business-
es is an indication that many workers who
filled those jobs before the hurricane have left
for locations where they can afford to live.
Congressmen weighed in on the problem.
"I would hope that the state of Florida pro-
vides these hurricane relief dollars to those
who need it most, and that certainly includes
Charlotte County," said Republican Con-
gressman Connie Mack.
Congressman Mark Foley has similar sen-
timents.
"While there's no doubt that all of Florida
suffered as a result of the storms last summer,
those in the path of the storms should not
have to compete for assistance with those
that only saw minimal rain and winds.


"The last thing HUD and state housing
officials want to do right now is travel down
the same road FEMA has by giving out money
without taking care of those most in need
first. These concerns have been raised and
they must be addressed during this process
We have a limited pot of money- those that
were hurt worst, deserve the most attention,"
Foley said.
Officials believe the most Charlotte County,
for example, can hope for is about $6 million..
It should not sound ungrateful to say that
number is woefully inadequate. Charlotte
and DeSoto counties should not have to
compete with richer, more populated coun-
ties for affordable housing funds when the
need there is so acute.


Recent thoughts


on education


LORRAINE COCCARO
COLUMNIST

My husband Richard's fa-
ther used to tell him this
about education: "Put it in
your pocket and when you
need it, you take it out."
Pretty good advice from a
very intelligent man who was,
pulled out of school at a very
early age and sent to work. As
a result, he never learned to
read or write.
Education is such a broad
topic, it is impossible to cover
it completely. Whole libraries
are devoted to that.
It is also a very personal
topic since each of us has
experienced it in his very own
way. Each of us has his own
story of what went right, what
went wrong and how it all
could be improved.
Here are three items I have
been thinking about:
The Scholastic Aptitude
Test now requires students
write an essay in 25 minutes.
Great idea shows if the stu-
dent can organize, develop
concepts and present those

concepts in language that,
anyone can understand.
The student has been
instructed to do this for years
and years, but many of these
students have never or hardly
been taught how to hand-
write legibly, and they will
have to do that in order to
answer the question. If it isn't
legible, the score is going to
plummet. No bleary-eyed
evaluator is going to have the
patience to puzzle -over a
scribble.
National Handwriting Day,
Jan. 23, came and went unno-
ticed. But at a private school,
according to The New York
Times, it was noticed that all
but two of the eighth-grade
students automatically print-
ed rather than wrote in script.
Either they had never been
taught or the skill was not
reinforced along the way from
second and third grade.
Another problem is that
printing is slow. According to
Kate Gladstone, a handwrit-
ing specialist, one can print at
30 words per minute but
write legibly in script at 100
words per minute. That speed
is important for taking notes
in class and for writing fast
enough on the SAT. The stu-
dent has to be able to write
fast and do it automatically so
that he is not thinking at all
about writing, only.about the
content of his essay.
I guess putting the Palmer
or Spencer method in a pock-'
et was good advice. It can be


taken out any time.
At the Envision Venice
meeting in February we had
to vote on what we felt was
most important on a number
of questions. One question on
education was, "How would
you assess the education sys-
tem and facilities in the Ven-
ice area?"
It didn't surprise me that 21
votes went to "Expand alter-
native, education and voca-
tional and technical training
for job training skills" or that
"Need to retain good teachers
and recruit talented new
teachers" won 10 votes or that
nine went to "Venice High
School in its current location
is a. strong member of our
conunuity and.promotes a
hometown feel."
What surprised me was
that no votes none went
to "Good quality of educa-
tion" or "School district is
working to improve schools."
This intriguing title cap-
tured my attention: "Ready or
Not, Here Life Comes." Mel
Levine, the author, sees the
high school student and the
young adult into his 20s as
unprepared for the crossover
from school to work. He is
facing an "economic world as
unfathomable as it is uinpre-
dictable."
High school students drift
into college without ever'
thinking deeply about what
they are preparing them-
selves for. High school stu-
dents who do not go to col-
lege often grab 'the first job
available. with no thought
about where that will lead, if
anywhere, in 10 or 20 years.
Working, for many, is a rude
awakening to reality.
S.R. (initials used by Levine,
to hide identity) at age 27 is
quoted, "My biggest fear is to
wake up at age 55 hating my
job and be, like, 'Oh, my good-
ness, what am I doing?' It's
scary to me to get to a point
and realize you haven't made a
difference or done anything
that means anything."
There is "life after sports"
and "being cool" in high
school, but what is it? This
book can make a person take
an inventory of himself.
Therefore, it is not an easy or
quick read. Introspection
takes time, effort and discus-
sion with parents, counselors
and friends.
There is something here
for adolescents, start-up
adults (those in their 20s-30s),
parents and educators.
The book is available in the
Sarasota Library System.
Since it is a high-demand ti-
tie, it is a seven-day book.
That's long enough to check it
out and see if you want to
invest the $26 for yourself or
someone you know who
could use it.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Doesbad driver profile fityou?


Editor:
In response to recent complaints regarding rude, inconsid-'
erate and fast drivers perhaps they fit this description:
The "official pace car" constantly drifting in the left lane,
holding up traffic in both lanes by his slow speed, completely,
oblivious of others behind him.
* The one sitting behind the intersection waiting for an open-
ing to turn left, not creeping out so that people behind you also
have a chance to make the green light.
The one passing me and sitting alongside of me so I can't get
by you in my lane or yours.
The one turning without using signals before you reach me,'
slowing my progress while I sit and wait to turn or enter the.
right of way without turning in front of you.
Last, but not least, the one turning left abruptly ahead of me,
without signaling, into the,middle boulevard, leaving the rear
end of your car out in my lane of traffic. You force me to stop
abruptly, stopping all behind me. I and others must wait until
you make your move, risking a rear-end collision or trying to
turn into the right lane, risking being hit from behind in that
lane also.
It's so simple when pulling into the boulevard to turn,
remove your whole car from the right of way. It's the right thing
to do.,

When life gives
you lemons...

Editor:
It is a well-known fact that
women are very capable of
finding satisfactory solutions
to otherwise annoying situa-
tions. This was clearly dem-
onstrated the evening of Jan.
13, during, the 1-75-bypass
traffic jam-up.
The Women's Sertoma
Club was holding its monthly
meeting at the Board of
Realtors office off the bypass.
As the women arrived, it
became clear club president
Betsy Cundiff, who had the
key to the office, was still
stuck in traffic.
The club members were
aware her delay was uncon-
trollable. So, as the women
stood in the dark parking lot
awaiting her arrival, they
started to plan a solution.


Wine bottles were opened,
refreshments were served
and the meeting began. One
club member had a -van,
which was quickly turned
into a "tailgate" table. After a
brief period of laughter and
conversation in the parking
lot, discussion turned to the
club's next charitable event.
The official meeting finally
got under way when Betsy
arrived with the key. There
were two great speakers, one
about the Beacon House
Mental Health Adult Drop-In
Center, which is a valuable re-
source center for those adults
suffering with mental illness,
and its upcoming Celebrity
Waiters Dinner in March; the
other about the new Youth
Center for young adults,
which will provide a safe
after-school setting for teens.
The club then-resumed its
monthly agenda and the


meeting came to a successful
ending. The members all had
a fun time and turned the
traffic jam nightmare into a
productive event. Bravo!
So much for annoying situ-
ations.

State created mess
by closing hospital
Editor:
I read with interest about a
new law that may help Flor-
ida's'mentally ill.
The key word is "may." It
certainly can't hurt the big
mess created by the 'inept
government officials who had
the brainstorm to close G.
Pierce Wood hospital and
turn its mental patients out
into the community.
Putting mentally ill pa-
tients who have been in a
safe, secure environment
with professionals adminis-
tering medications into
"community-based, group-
home-type settings" with ill-
trained staff was, and still is,
insanity. Now, as usual, they
want to patch up this failed
system that was doomed
from the start.
How do I know this? Be-
cause I worked at a local jail at
the time of the closing of this
mental health facility, and
almost immediately an influx
of severely mentally ill per-
sons entered our jail. What
did these officials expect?
Their promises of quality care
for these people and to "save'
taxpayers money" were a lie.
Mentally ill persons who
left group homes almost
immediately got into the
community, got into trouble
with the law and were taken
to jail.
The jail staff then had to


make a "safe place" for these
mentally ill inmates where
they would not be a danger to
themselves or others. This
resulted in needing extra jail
staff and overtime hours,
which in turn cost the taxpay-
ers more money.
When mental patients do
not get medications and
proper treatment, disaster
happens. How many disasters
have to happen before action
is taken?

Keep helicopter
jobs in the U.S.
Editor:
I am on a campaign to stop
'a terrible situation that, is
occurring in the United
States. Helicopter production
jobs. are currently being
awarded to. the French and
Germans, taking the jobs
away from Americans..
Homeland Security, which
has 140 helicopters built by
the French and Germans, has
just' awarded a contract for
the construction of 55 more
French-built helicopters.
Some say that if this trend
continues, the United States
will virtually be out of the
helicopter business in 10
years, and we will be buying
products from France and
Germany.
If this gets under your skin
as much as it does mine, you
can send a letter to your sena-
tor or representative in your
area to try to stop this course
of events.
Feel free to research this
troubling activity on the
Internet for further informa-
tion.

LET 'EM HAVE H! WHAT SHOULD THE PARK THAT WILL REPLACE THE


You're invited to a community summit


BY MARTY BLACK AND TIM DUTTON
GUEST COLUMNISTS

What images do you see
when you hear the phrase
"troubled neighborhood?" or
"troubled community?"
Crime? Joblessness? Gangs?
Drugs?
These are the neighbor-
hoods in which government
and nonprofits have services
for citizens, or "clients," in
need. It may even be the case
that in these communities
residents actually believe
their well-being depends on
being a client. This is called a
needs-based approach to
community building.
On the other hand, what
images are generated when
you hear the term "communi-
ty assets?" Do you think of
churches, libraries, parks,
schools,
neighbor-
hood associa-
tions, citizen
associations, "
hospitals,
community
colleges and
cultural
groups as
community Black
assets? What
about the gifts individuals of
different ethnic and racial
backgrounds, artists, youth
and the elderly bring to the
table?
How a community devel-
ops and changes can be view-
ed through either lens -
needs or assets.
Currently, most work in
communities and neighbor-
hoods is needs-based, tend-
ing to have its focus on out-
side agencies and organiza-
tions, while the other lens is
focused on local residents
and local assets.
With a needs-based ap-

proach, a community's suc-
cess is owned by or is the
responsibility of the outside
organization. With an asset-
based approach, the respon-
sibility is that of local resi-
dents. One is
about a cli-
ent-agency
relationship.
.A '. -The other is
.- about person-
to-person
relationships
A'| and capacity-
building by
Dutton producing
practical
resources and tools for the
community to identify, nur-
ture and mobilize neighbor-
hood assets.
The cities of Venice, Sara-
sota and Palmetto, together
with Sarasota County, Man-
atee County and SCOPE, are
joining efforts to give our
community these tools.
On Feb. 26, we will hold the
Manasota Regional Neigh
borhoods Summit, giving lo-
cal residents and civic leaders
throughout the Sarasota-
Manatee region a chance to
learn more about this asset-
based approach to communi-


ty-building.
The highlight of the day-
long training will be the key-
note address by nationally
known speaker, John Mc-
Knight.
With three decades of
community development re-
search under his belt, Mc-
Knight has conducted re-
search on social service deliv-
ery systems, health policy,
community organizations,
neighborhood policy and
institutional racism. He cur-
rently directs research pro-
jects focused on asset-based
neighborhood development
and methods of community
building.
So how does that relate to
our community? Each of our
local communities is cur-
rently involved in updating
our long-term plans and
visions.
If we are talking about cre-
ating a future that improves
upon the past, we need to
have new conversations with
people who have not tradi-
tionally had a seat at the
table.
Instead of a knee-jerk reac-
tion to problem-solving, we
can say to ourselves, "Our
community has meaningful
assets. From these assets we
can build a stronger commu-
nity."
The Manasota Regional
Neighborhoods Summit is a
piece of that new conversa-
tion, and reinforces the idea
that every and any -
neighborhood can build on
its assets, if it is just given the.
right tools to recognize, nur-
ture and utilize those assets.

Teed off about water shortage


Drip, drip. Water is in short supply, isn't it? That is what the
Water Planning Alliance told us. The alliance needs to find an
additional 24 million gallons of water a day for Sarasota and
three surrounding counties. But just a week later, I saw a half-
page ad about a new golf course development in Sarasota
County built exclusively for 275 members. Those members
have been allotted 300,000 gallons of water a year each just to
keep their grass green. Anyone else notice the ad? Hopefully
Venice City Council saw the ad and will remind the Water
Planning Alliance that their citizens will not pay higher taxes or
water rates to subsidize extravagant uses of our water
resources.


Reason needed. I took sev-
eral days and drove around
the industrial park area. I'm
sure there are some improve-
ments that could and should
be made safety improve-
ments are important but
what are you doing, Venice?
This whole area is very
unique. Don't improve or
eliminate 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?
Listen up. After much
searching of Florida I am a
year-round resident of 10
weeks. Referencing Lorraine
Coccaro's column regarding
Venice changes and ideas, I
hope everyone is listening to
her. Ms. Coccaro has some
good ideas of what to do and
not to do about Venice. This is
Venice, Fla., not Venice, Italy.
Please don't make changes just
to make changes.If changes are
needed, make thoughtful,
appropriate changes and .don't
ruin what you have.
No right. The most disgust-
ing sight I have ever seen on
TV was blood-thirsty women
marching for the murder of


the unborn child. Pity all
these women who will stand
in judgment before God one
day. God does not give any
woman the right to murder
the innocent.


Flawed. I am responding to
Barry Ziegler's letter regarding
'hybrid cars. His analysis is
flawed. It is based on the
assumption that the county
pays $2 per gallon for gaso-
line. First, government enti-
ties are tax exempt. At $2 per
gallon, that amounts to 14
cents per gallon just for the
sales tax. State and federal
taxes are also probably
exempted.
Second, these purchases
are made through the com-
petitive bidding process. The
actual cost of the fuel is prob-
ably at the wholesale price or
below.

Outlining the Economic


Development Corporation


The Economic Development Corporation
stimulates business in Sarasota County by
diversifying and making area businesses more
efficient while maintaining the heritage and
history of the area.


BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER

The Economic- Develop-
ment Corporation of Sarasota
County, formed on Oct. 1,
2004, as a spinoff from the
Sarasota Chamber of Com-
merce, is the county's profes-
sional entity for economic
development.
The EDC works to help
expansion of existing compa-
nies, attract and retain quality
jobs, bring in new businesses
that have the assets and val-
ues of Sarasota County, pro-
mote the county's business
image and enhance the over-
all quality of life.
The EDC's mission is to
foster economic opportuni-
ties with community and
regional partners to diversify,
grow and sustain the econo-
my and enhance the unique
natural and cultural environ-
ment, according to Brian
Cartland, senior economic
development manager at
EDC.
Values
Cartland said the EDC is
dedicated to:
Preserving the heritage of
Sarasota County while culti-
vating value-added, cutting-
edge economic opportunities
that are sustainable for future
generations.
Sustaining the vibrancy
of the area while enhancing
environmental harmony and
quality.
Including a diversified
representation in the organi-
zation and incorporating
respect for each person and
joy in our work.
Enhancing the "intercon-
nectedness" of appropriate
entities in the county and
beyond and uniting the


resources to facilitate our
work in economic develop-
ment.
Desired outcomes
For EDC to accomplish its
strategic framework, Cartland
said, the EDC has setup a
series of desired outcomes,
with strategies and key per-
formance indicators to moni-
tor and keep EDC on course.
Retain and increase the
number of high-wage jobs in
cluster-related industries.
EDC's strategies are to pro-
vide dedicated staff and
board support to cluster work
groups, strengthen working
relationships with value-
added industries in the com-
munity, and focus marketing
programs on companies with
linkages to EDC's identified
clusters and other export-ori-
ented businesses.
Indicators EDC wants to
see are a minimum of 500

Management changes with

county fire department


STAFF REPORT


As part of an initiative to..
strengthen the fire prevention
.and emergency medical ser-
vices Sarasota County pro-
vides its residents, the Sara-
sota County Fire Department
has announced new assign-
ments for fire department
staff members.
"This is a strategic effort to
leverage the talents, strengths
and expertise of our staff as
we develop additional fire
prevention programs for our
citizens," said Fire Chief Brian
Gorski.
Battalion Chief Mike Suar-
ez has been promoted to
assistant chief and will co-
manage Fire and Emergency
Medical Services operations
with Assistant Chief Paul
Dezzi.
Suarez has expertise in
both prevention and public
education, and in developing
programs aimed at reducing
fires using fire personnel.
Dezzi will, manage' both
Fire and EMS operations.
With 80 percent of EMS


responses related to medical
incidents, Dezzi is responsi-
ble for both fire and EMS. He

field of EMS service delivery,
EMS public education and
prevention programs.

POLICE BEAT


DUI checkpoint
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office traffic deputies will be
conducting a DUI sobriety
checkpoint at an undisclosed
location in Sarasota County.
This checkpoint is scheduled
to begin at 11 p.m. Feb. 18 and
end at 4 a.m. Feb. 19. The
location of the checkpoint
will not be released.
Nationally, it is known that
fatal, alcohol-related acci-
dents are three times more
likely to occur at night than
during daylight hours.
The operator of each vehi-
cle will be asked to display a
driver license. A visual check
from outside the vehicle will
be made for proper seatbelt
usage and open containers of
alcohol in plain view. During
this time, the operator will
also be observed for any signs
of impairment.
If no violation is observed
and the operator does not
show any signs of being
impaired, the vehicle will
immediately be allowed to
leave. If it appears the opera-
tor is under the influence, he
or she will be directed to a
safe location off the immedi-
ate roadway for further inves-
tigation.
Motorists will recognize
the checkpoint by appropri-
ate signs and warning devices
and the presence of uni-


formed law enforcement per-
sonnel. .
Jail phone-scam
The Sarasota County Sher-
iff's Office has issued a warn-
ing about a telephone scam
that is occurring in the coun-
ty and throughout the state.
Prison inmates are posing
as police officers and other
emergency workers.
They randomly call phone
numbers in different area
codes. When they reach a vic-
tim, they say they found the
number in the wallet of
someone who has been in-
jured.
The inmates try to con-
vince fthe v'icim that the
"injured person" is someone
they know.
The victim is told to press
*72 so they can be transferred
to the injured person.
By pressing *72, the inmate
can then make long-distance
calls at the victim's expense.
The sheriff's office has got-
ten four reports of this scam
between Feb. 8-12.
It is simple to avoid falling
for the ruse.
If a call comes to you from
a prison, it is preceded by a
message that states the call is
coming from, a jail. It then
.asks if you would like to
accept the charges.
DO NOT ACCEPT the


charges and simply hang up
the phone.
If you think you have
already been a victim, you
can immediately dial *73 to
reverse the process.
Then contact your phone
carrier to report the incident
and see if any charges have
been made against your ac-
count.
If charges have been made
on your account, call the
sheriff's office at 861-4260.

Alert bankers got suspi-
cious when a man kept with-
drawing funds from an elder-
ly relative's account, a Veffice
police report states.,
Barry A. Spencer, 53, no
address listed, River Road,
Venice, was charged with
exploiting the elderly.
According to the police

picious when Spencer show-
ed up at the bank with an
elderly relative on several oc-
casions and withdrew money

HOW TO FLOSS.
The function of dental floss is is to clean the surfaces of teeth that
cannot be reached by the toothbrush. The floss is stretched between
the fingers, which are placed inside and outside the teeth. It is then
gently slipped between the teeth not snapped through. Snapping
can injure the gum tissue, so it is important to ease rather than force
the floss through. The floss should then be worked three or four times
up and down in a scraping motion, without rubbing the gum. It should
not be pulled back and forth. This "sawing" action causes undue wear.
Flossing is a skill that takes some practice. Eventually one's fingers
get a "feel" for what they are doing. Floss holders can make it easier,.
but they are not necessary for anyone with normal dexterity. As long as
you can hold the floss taut, you can learn. Even a skilled flosser has
difficulty where contacts between the teeth are very tight or fray the
nylon. If this occurs these problems may be eliminated by scaling the
teeth or by smoothing or replacing defective fillings.

flags over


Iwo


SECTION B


PHOTO CONTEST ANNOUNCED 148


Jima


STORY BY DON MOORE SENIOR WRITER

C pl. Chuck Lindberg talks about raising the first flag on Iwo Jima; the
one most people don't even know about. The first flag went up at
10:30 a.m.; the replacement flag at about 2:30 p.m.


Dick Hornyak, an old Eng-
lewood Marine who never
had a shot fired at him in
anger, marched into the Sun's
Englewood office last April
with a scrapbook full of black-
and-white pictures showing
the U.S. Marines taking Iwo
Jima away from the Japanese
shortly before World War II
ended.
The historic photos were
shot 60 years ago this week by
Sgt. Lou Lowery, a photogra-
pher working for Leatherneck
magazine, the Marine Corps'
national publication. He also
took the picture of the first
American flag-raising on the
island four days after the
Marines hit the beach.
Hornyak obtained the
photos through a Marine
Corps buddy. The buddy is a
history buff who got to know
Lowery before he died a few
years ago. He also became
friends with Chuck Lindberg,
the last survivor of the six-
man squad that put the first
American flag on Mount
Suribachi. Lindberg was in
the 3rd Platoon. He had a
flamethrower and carried two
tanks of napalm on his back.
What many people don't
know is that two American
flags were placed atop the
highest peak on the volcanic'
Pacific island within hours of
each other on Feb. 23, 1945.
Lowrey took the least well-
known picture of the first flag
going up on the hill. Joe
Rosenthal shot the AP photo
that everyone has seen many
times over the last six dec-
ades. Rosenthal's flag-raising
shot is said to be the most
reproduced picture of WWII.
It was Easy Company's 3rd
Platoon, 2nd Battalion, 28th
Regiment, 5th Marine Di-
vision that made history on
Iwo Jima that day. Ordered by
their battalion commander,
Lt. Col. Chandler Johnston, to
put the flag on top of the hill,
they moved out at 9:45 a.m.


"Forty members of the 3rd
Platoon headed up the
mountain with the first flag,"
Lindberg, 83, recalled nearly
60 years later. "I.thought it
would be a slaughterhouse
because of all the trouble we'd
had getting to the base of the
mountain."
The Marines from Easy
Company faced little resis-
tance on the way up. Forty-
five minutes later they reach-
ed the top. A member of their
platoon found a half-buried
piece of water pipe on top of
the hill. Lindberg, Lt. Harold
Schrier, Earnest Thomas and
Henry Hansen attached the
flag to the pipe.

"The first flag went up at
10:30 a.m. When it did, whis-
tles from our ships offshore


began blowing," Lindberg
said. '"A few minutes later, the
Japanese started coming out
of a nearby cave. Our BAR
(Browning Automatic Rifle)
man spotted them and drove
them back inside. I threw
some flame in the cave and
nobody came out. Then, a
satchel charge was thrown in
and the cave was sealed. Two
days later, we opened the cave
and found 72 dead Japanese
soldiers." I
Several hours after the first
flag was waving in the breeze
on top of Suribachi, Lt. Col.
Johnston decided to have a
second squad of Marines
retrieve the first flag and put
up a larger American flag. He
wanted to keep the first flag
because of its historical signif-
icance.
Lowery passed Rosenthal
on the way down the moun-
tain as the AP photographer
was heading up with the sec-
ond group of Marines ordered
to put up the new flag. The
Leatherneck photographer
told his AP competition he
had already taken a number
of pictures of the first flag-
raising.
That didn't deter Rosen-
thal, who decided to go on up
Suribachi in the hopes of get-
ting a photograph worth pub-
lishing. The AP photographer
and an Army Signal Corps
movie cameraman were sit-
ting on the side of the hill as
the Marines raised the re-
placerment flag about 2:30
p.m. The sergeant with the
movie camera glanced over,
saw it going up and yelled to
Rosenthal. He swung around
with his twin-lens Rolleiflex
camera and snapped one

Alligator Creek


is in the news


ELLEN HILLSTROM
COLUMNIST

I'll bet not too many peo-
ple know where Alligator
Creek is in Venice. It runs pri-
marily, from Woodmere Park,
under South U.S. 41, and
empties into Lemon Bay and
the, Intracoastal Waterway in
South Venice. The creek runs
right through our South Ven-
ice subdivision.
There have been recent art-
icles written about the de-
velopments that are affecting
Alligator Creek. Maybe I can
add what the South Venice Civ-
ic Association has been told:
Hidden Pines Condomin-
iums: This is a complex that
will be built on land behind
the Galleria Plaza near Alli-
gator Place Road. It is zoned
for 98 ,condominium units
south of the creek. All of the
final permits. have. been ap-
plied for and construction \ill
probably start late in 2005.
Alligator Creek Trail: This
is still in the conceptual stage
but is making good progress.
This will be a bicycle/pedes-
trian trail running along Alli-


gator Creek's south side, start-
ing near Woodmere Park and
the Frances T. Bourne Jaca-
randa Library following the
creek to Shamrock Drive. As
an alternative, it may follow
Seminole/Jamaica to Sham-
rock Drive on the west side.
This is a $1.6-million in-
vestment paid for with ad val-
orem taxes, gas tax and tele-
communication taxes. It cer-
tainly will be an amenity for
our community. There will be
more public hearings to get
public feedback. Alex Bou-
dreau (861-0920) is our con-
tact person.
At the general membership
meeting of the South Venice
Civic Association next Mon-
day, Feb. 21, 7 p.m. at our
community center, the sub-
ject of Alligator Creek will be
discussed. No representative
from county government will
be there, however, because it
is a legal holiday. We also will
have a Ukrainian saxophone
artist performing for the audi-
ence.
And, of course, in our usual
style, refreshments and social
camaraderie will follow the
program and business meet-
ing. Ya'Ull are invited to join us
if you wish. We especially love
to see our newer members
show up. ,' L"*

ic comment on


escheated North Port lots


The audience at the Feb. 14 city commission
meeting was surprised to learn the last chance to
speak up was in December, even though there
was no call for public comment at that time.


BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER


Rob Robinson, attorney for
the city of North Port, report-
ed on the status of the es-
cheated lots it and Sarasota
County intend to sell to a
packed city chamber at Mon-.
day night's city commission
meeting.
On Dec. 7, 2004, during a
public meeting between Sara-
sota County and North Port in
Sarasota, the two boards
agreed to sell the 2,218
escheated lots, all in the geo-
graphic boundaries of the
incorporated city of North
Port.
The county will receive 45
percent of the proceeds, with
the city receiving 55 percent
from the sale of the lots,
which are estimated to. be
worth $15 million to $40 mil-
lion.
However, first the cost of
the sale, appraisals and sur-
veys, and back taxes to the
schools, county and city. will
be paid. And the county,
which will be the more
prominent seller, will provide
an audit to the city of all taxes
and costs incurred. The city


will provide the county a quit-
claim deed to the properties.
The lots will be sold indi-
vidually, in sealed bids with
the minimum bid set at mar-
ket value.
But this did not sit well
with many residents in the
packed city commission cham-
.ber Monday. Unfortunately,
the residents may have been
too late to have their voices
heard.
"The Dec. 7 meeting was
the last meeting for public
input," Robinson said.
But others who attended
that meeting did not recall
any call for public comment.
North Port City Clerk Helen
Raimbeau found the minutes
of the Dec. 7 meeting, and
Robinson confirmed that
there was no call for public
comment.
"There was no public com-
ment called for, and it was not
on the agenda,' said commis-
sioner Vanessa Carusone,
"and.it was not allowed."
Some questioned whether
the Dec. 7 meeting was even a
meeting, since public com-
ment was not called for.
"Because nobody was de-
nied, or asked to speak, then


it was a valid meeting ... we
were basically settling a law-
suit," Robinson said.
Sold out
The residents, however,
saw it differently.
Buddy Hughes produced a
petition of 300 signatures to
ask the city to continue its lit-
igation against the county.
However, when she asked
Robinson if the city can con-
tinue the litigation, he said
"no."
Hughes responded, "That
is a shame for selling us out."
Others also wondered why
the city does not pursue legal
action against the county.
Darryl Henry wanted to
know how elected officials
could justify giving away $15
million.
But North Port still does
not have a written agreement
with the county,' and the law-


suit against the county starts
on Feb. 28.
Robinson said that he will
file for an extension, but that
it is not guaranteed and that
the city is not ready for a trial.
"(During) every meeting
held by the city of North Port
prior to the election on Nov. 2,
2004, every commissioner,-
voted not to settle in any way
with the county over the issue
of the escheated lots," said
former city commissioner Joe
Fink during a break in Mon-
day's meeting.
"In fact, all voted to contin-
ue the suit under Florida Stat-
ute- 197.592, paragraph 3, to
continue to acquire title," he
added.
Robinson said that in this
case, if the county presents an
interlocal agreement and city
commissioners fail to pass it,

interview with the Joint Commission's field representatives at the time of the survey.
Information presented at the interview will be carefully evaluated for relevance to the
accreditation process. Requests for a public information interview must be made in -
writing and should be sent to the Joint Commission no later than five working days
before the survey begins. The request must also indicate the nature of the information to
be pro\ ided at the interview. Such requests should be addressed to: ,

The Joint Commission's Office of Quality Monitoring will acknowledge in writing or by
telephone requests received 10 days before the survey begins. An Account
Representative will contact the individual requesting the publication information
inter\ ie\ prior to survey, indicating the location, date, and time of the interview and the
name of the surveyor who will conduct the interview.

This notice is posted in accordance with the Joint Commission's requirements and may
not be removed before the survey is complete.

The spirit of the living


God transforms lives


DONNA MARTONFI
m^R, (".A 3Ulfl

Rick Joyner once remarked
that one definition of hell was
to sit in an endless church
service without the presence
of God. My definition would
include a sermon that comes
out of the speaker's mouth
and crashes to the floor with a
loud thud instead of one that
brings life and hope and
transformation to the listener.
There is a tremendous differ-
ence between the two. The
first one misses the mark and
is destined to fail. Even
though it may have been well
thought out and diligently


researched, if it is void of the
Spirit of God, people won't
even remember the topic
much less be changed by its
content. As II Corinthians 3:6
(KJV) says, "... the letter kill-
eth, but the spirit giveth life."
We can be given a truck-
load of information but if the
message is not inspired by
the Holy Spirit, we leave just
as empty as we have come in
and any problems that we
have brought with us are still
staring us in the face the next
morning. That is why so
many people spend count-
less dollars on self-help books
and lectures and seem to go
round and round the same
mountain, never getting the
victory over their particular
situation. Or they can be in
therapy for years and never
seem to get much better. I
believe that many would
benefit more from speaking
to someone who had been
sexually abused, rejected or
addicted but who have been
healed and are now living as

MARTONFI from page 6B


overcomers because God has
brought wholeness into their
life by the supernatural heal-
ing power of the Holy Spirit.
When the Spirit of God
himself is the author of the
message, it carries an anoint-
ing and succeeds in bringing
transformation. It is not bor-
ing and it is not dead. Some-
thing happens. Growth oc-
curs. Maturity develops and
lives are changed by the
power of God. The change is
permanent because hearts
are transformed from the in-
side out.
Whenever I counsel or
present a message, I depend
entirely on God for its con-
tent. I speak out of either per-
sonal revelation that God
has previously illuminated to
me or out of the experiences
that God has had me walk
through. If I have not been
down a particular road my-
self, I would not even attempt
to lead anyone down that
unfamiliar path. I need to
have the Holy Spirit impart
the truth of a passage of scrip-
ture to me personally so as to
have his divine understand-
ing of it before I will present it
to someone else.
It would also be almost
futile to speak about the Holy
Spirit unless I intimately
"knew" the person of the Holy
Spirit just as I could not re-
lay to you what Jell-O tasted
like unless I had eaten a bowl
first. I know of Queen Eliz-
abeth but I do not know her
personally. I don't know what
side of the bed she gets up
on or what she has for break-
fast. I do not even know if
she likes Jell-O, so how in-
spiring would my commen-
tary on her be?
Neither is a church sup-
posed to function as a social
club but as the living, breath-
ing "Body of Christ." It is
meant to be a hospital for the
simnner, the broken and the
hurting. That is why super-
natural events erupt when the
Spirit of God is allowed to
move in a service because it is


only the Holy Spirit who
knows which heart needs a
touch from God.
Just this past Sunday, in
the middle of the service, a
sweet little lady asked if she
could say something. The
pastor graciously obliged and
allowed her to address us.
Because she felt safe with us
she shared how her father
had always called her the
black sheep of the family
and would even introduce
her to people using those
hurtful words. Suddenly, as if
a dam had burst, she started
to sob violently as those ter-
rible memories rose to the
surface. The pastor walked
over to her and cradled her
in his arms, as would any
loving, caring father and just
held her as she poured out
her pain. The rest of us gath-
ered around them and start-
ed to pray and comfort her.
. As we manifested our Heav-
enly Father's unconditional
love for her it met her deepest
need. She will never be the
same again. Becasue she re-
ceived ministry the torment
and the pain lifted and she
left the church smiling rea-
lizing she now belonged to
the family of God.
My heart aches (and so
must God's) for those that go
to church out of obligation
and listen to someone who
is only going through the
motions. Or for those who sit
under a pastor who needs to
control each and every thing
that happens in a church ser-
vice. God has so much more.
When we allow him to com-
pose our messages and invite
him to orchestrate our ser-
vices He brings liberty and
freedom from dead works
and lives are reconstructed.

the city to court to get what
he called an "enforcement
order" to compel the city to
abide by the agreement.
"I'm confused about all
this," Fink said. "The city and
county came to a meeting of
the minds. Why can't you pro-
duce an interlocal agree-
ment?"
"We may not be selling
things in 50-lot blocks, and
we may have an agreement
by March, and we may be
able to get an extension, and
we may allow adjacent own-

might be able to do sealed

Venice author will be on national news show


KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Venice author Jack Warner
will be a guest on "Friends of
Fox National News Sunday"
morning program Feb. 20.
The show airs 7-10 a.m. on
Comcast Cable Channel 64 in
the Venice area.
Warner will discuss his cur-
rent book, "Reflections in the
Rear View Mirror." One of his
reflections involves a Yale
teammate named Jack Down-
ey, who was recruited by the
CIA, captured in China in
1952 during the Korean War
and spent more than 21 years
in Chinese captivity. Some
years after his release Down-
ey, with his wife and child,
returned to China. Warner
and his sonr accompanied
them with the goal of doing a
book on Downey's story.
In his research, Warner
learned why the U.S. govern-
ment ignored pleas by
Downey's widowed mother
and hundreds of Americans
and made no attempt to meet
Chinese offers to release their
American prisoners. Warner
describes his book as a story
of a young patriot left to suffer
because of the political views
of powerful Americans who
did not want China's "barbar-
ians" to be allowed to join the
"family of nations," and of,
America's most powerful
newsman who did not want
Western newsmen to visit
China. Downey, later said to
have been a CIA agent by
President Richard Nixon. was
released when Nixon made
his surprise visit to China.
Warner's book also in-
cludes his personal ordeal
with cancer and his survival
following an encounter with a
priest who is said to have
healing powers.
The book also contains
stories of adventures in Ire-
land, Iran and even Nantuck-
et.
Warner and his wife, Polly,
live in Venice during the win-
ter and spend summers in
Chatham on Cape Cod. The
book can be purchased at The
Bobk Shop in Venice, Barnes
& Noble and at amazon.com.

If you have not been to
Circus Sarasota this month,
call now to reserve your seats.
The big new red and white
Barreda Italian tent is on
Tuttle just south of Fruitville,
behind the Sarasota County
Fairgrounds and the show is
super. I was there last Satur-
day night and still haven't
decided which act I liked best,
from the opening Liberty
Horse act to the Austrian jug-
gler to the Mumtville dog act to
the aerial artistry of Dolly
Jacobs and her partner Yuri
Rjkov to the Russian riding
troupe members who jump-
ed on and off galloping hors-
es, even wrapping themselves
around the steeds as they
were going at full gallop
around the perimeter of the
one ring. Dolly is sensational
and, fortunately for her le-
gions of fans, she also will be
performing this season in the
Sarasota Ballet's reprise of its
world-class ballet, "Ca d'Zan,"


created last year by, ballet
director Robert de Warren.
The dog act is both aston-
ishing and funny. The dogs
are mutts, most discovered at
the pound by their own-
er/trainer, Johnny Peers. They
climb step ladders, jump
through and over hoops and
even walk across tightropes.
Ricardo Sosa, the hand bal-
ancer from Cuba, was equally
amazing but in a whole differ-
ent way. Not only did he have
us all wondering how he
could do what he does, allow-
ing for his agility and flexibili-
ty, how he could cantilever his
weight the way he did was
even more stunning to see.
Circus Sarasota is preserv-
ing this area's circus legacy in
all the best ways. In addition
to its annual run, Circus
Sarasota offers classes in
clowning and operates
Laughter Unlimited, a group
of performing clowns who
entertain the elderly and oth-.
ers who might be unable to be
out and about. One of the
principals of Circus Sarasota
and also of Laughter Un-
limited is Chuck Sidlow, a
Clown College graduate and a
former teacher there. Live the
Dream.
For tickets, call 355-9805.

Feb. 19 and 20, 10 a.m.-5
p.m., Sarasota is hosts its an-
nual Winter Fine Art Fair on
Main Street. Exhibiting artists
representing more than half
of the United States and will
show work priced $15-
$20,000, offering something
for every taste and budget. To

Booker High School the-


ater students recently won
the Florida State Theatre Con-
ference and have the oppor-
tunity to perform their win-
ning show, "Seussical the
Musical" at the regional con-
ference but they need money
to get there. You can help and
also see their award-winning
show.
Sunday, Feb. 27, at 2 p.m.
Booker's Cabaret Group will
perform a Cole Porter tribute,
followed by the Booker
troupe's production of "Seus-
sical, the Musical." Tickets are
$25 per person and can be
ordered from Judy Piercy at
Book, 355-2967. There also
will be a silent auction and
refreshments.
, Booker is the county's
magnet school of the per-
forming arts. If you haven't
seen a play or musical at
Booker, you have missed one
of the best theater values in
town and also some of, the
best performances. At least
two of the shows I have seen
at Booker have been better
than productions of the same
show by professional troupes.
Reserve your seats now
and prepare to smile.

10B VENICE GONDOLIER SUN

COOL from previous Green Sheet
filled with colorful images
and easy-to-follow instruc-
tions for making a wide vari-
ety of the cotton critters made
each night by the line's cabin
stewards. Often, guests' sun-
glasses, hats or other acces-
sories are incorporated into
the designs, which include
everything from cats and dogs
to dinosaurs, elephants and
snails. The towel animals are
currently being featured in a
new national advertising
campaign. Stateroom stew-
ards undergo more than 10
hours of training to learn how
to create the various designs
and it is estimated that the
stewards create some 7 mil-
lion towel animals annually.
The book is available in the
Formalities shops or from the
stateroom stewards about the
line's 20 ships. The cost is
$12.95.
For more information and
reservations, consult our trav-
el professional or call (800)
CARNIVAL or visit carnival

Radisson Seven Seas fleet
has been enhanced in several
ways, from new alternative
menus to in-suite Bose Wave
music systems, new showers
and Newspaperdirect service.
This month, Radisson be-
came the first cruise line to
introduce a pint-on-demand
service of same-day newspa-
pers across its fleet. Guests
may opt to receive daily print-
ed editions of their favorite
national or international
newspapers, including USA
Today, Financial Times, The
Wall Street Journal, Frank-
furter Allgemeine Zeitung
and Le Monde, among others.
All suites on the Seven Seas
Mariner and Seven Seas
Navigator have been upgrad-
ed with DVD players. There
will be an extensive DVD
movie library on each of these
ships. The Seven Seas Voyager
already has a DVD library and
players in all its suites.
Another upgrade on the
Mariner is rain showers and
tile seating, which have
replaced bathtubs in 47 suites
aboard that ship.

When a good cat doesbad things


BY DR. DENNIS SELIG
GUEST COLUMNIST
"I'm at my wit's end with
Rudy," exclaimed Melanie. "I'm
seriously considering having
him put to sleep or giving him
away. He was such a great pet
before we moved, but now he
refuses to use his litter box -
,and we have new carpet and
fumiture. He must be angry at
me for moving."
House soiling is the most


conunon behavior problem
reported by cat owners and is
a major cause for cats to be
abandoned or undergo
euthanasia. To determine
why a cat suddenly quits
using its litter box requires
time, some investigative
skills and perseverance.
Why would a cat eliminate
outside of the litter box?
Contrary to popular belief,
mother cats do not teach
their kittens to use litter. Kit-


tens dig and use clean, loose
material for elimination at
four weeks of age without
ever observing the mother
using the material. Also, Mel-
anie's assumption that Rudy
eliminated outside of the lit-
ter box because he was seek-
ing revenge makes logical
sense, but, in truth, Rudy
probably doesn't have the
cognitive ability to come to
this conclusion. Furthermore,
this assumption presumes


that Rudy views urine or feces
as distasteful and disgusting.
In reality, humans may view
them as yucky but to Rudy
they are simple modes of
communicating with other
cats.
Could house soiling be caused
by a medical problem?
One of the first steps to
determining why a cat uri-
nates or defecates on our
carpet or bed is to determine
if there is a medical problem.

At 12 years old, Marge is a wonderful "senior" dog. She came
to us when her elderly owner passed away, and the family
members were not able to care for her. Marge is loving, quiet,
affectionate and gentle. She enjoys just being cuddled and will
snuggle up with you to give you all the love you can handle.
This wonderful lady deserves a chance to spend the rest of her
life in a loving home. Marge's adoption fee is reduced by $10
because she is a senior dog. Can you give Marge a home? Visit
the Humane Society of Sarasota County at 2331 15th St.,
Sarasota, or call 955-4131.


Your pet's doctor can per-
form a good physical exam
and laboratory tests to diag-
nose diseases that cause our
cats to eliminate outside the
litter box, such as diabetes,
hyperthyroidism, feline lower
urinary tract disease, cancer,
neurological disease, intesti-
nal, parasites or constipation.
Age-related diseases, such as
arthritis or impaired cognitive
functions, can also influence
* *ur cat's ability to get to the lit-
ter box in time.
Could it be the litter or the lit-
ter box?
Sometimes cats will uri-
nate or defecate outside of
the box simply because the
box, the litter, or the location
of the box is not acceptable to
them. The box may have an
offensive odor because it was
cleaned with a harsh chemi-
cal.
Or, if the box is not
cleaned often, the box may
smell of urine. (It's recom-
mended that you have two
litter boxes for one cat, three
boxes for two cats, etc.) Often
cats find the texture'of some
litter distasteful and have a
preference for fine or course
litter, clumping or non-
clumping litter.
While scented litter ap-
peals to us, many cats find
the perfume unsavory. Also,
the location of the box can
play a role. For example, the
box may be in a high-traffic,
noisy, dark, or dank area. Or
your cat is afraid to use the
box, because she was terror-
ized while she was in the box
or ambushed as she tried to
exit the box.
Urine marking?
Cats mark their possessions
by rubbing their scent from


the glands in the cheeks and
paws or by spraying urine.
Depositing small amounts of
urine around an area
announces a cat's presence,
establishes or maintains terri-
r trial boundaries, and adver-
tises sexual availability.
Cats may spray when
there is a perceived threat to
their territory, such as the
presence of a new cat or an
outside cat gets too near.
They may also spray if there
is new carpet or furniture
and the cat desires to claim
it. Sometimes cats spray sole-
ly out of frustration: the
f owner has been away too
long to suit the cat, they don't
like the type or the amount
of food available, they didn't
get enough playtime to satis-
fy them (if this sounds like a
spoiled brat, you are on the
right track).
OK, so what do we do?
Your pet's doctor is trained
to assist you not only in
determining the medical
causes but also the behav-
ioral causes for house soilitig.
Often, simple recommenda-
tions such as changing the
type of litter or the rype and '
location of the litter box may
help. A useful commercial.
product, Feliway, is a syn-
thetic pheromone that
inhibits cats from spraying
on areas that have this scent.
Dr. Dennis Selig is a veteri-
narian at Northwood Hills
Animal Hospital in Gulfport,
Miss. Do you have a question
about your pet? Write to the

This old house needs a new home


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Both the present and fu-
ture owners of what is consid-
ered to be the oldest house on
the island of Venice hope to
find a new home for the
house.
It was built in 1896 on the
75-acre bayfront orange grove
site that was not part of the
1925 Brotherhood of Loco-
motive Engineers land deal
that paved the way for today's
Venice. The grove was owned
by Joseph Lord, who once
owned 30,000 acres of SarA-
sota County land. Lord be-


came the first Sarasota Coun-
ty representative to the state
capital.
Listed for sale with Exit
Realty Gulf Coast Realtor Dan
Heschmeyer, a contract has
been issued on the house,
with an expected closing for
Feb. 26, on behalf of a Ca-
nadian buyer who plans to
build a new house on the site.
That could mean the dem-
olition of the old house,
which is not listed on the
National Register of Historic
Places, although many Ve-
netians consider it of historic
significance for its age and
history. Buildings are listed


Unless someone can be found to move the house to a new site,
the 108-year-old house will be torn down to make way for a
new house...


only after being evaluated for
their historical significance.
Placement on the register,
which is maintained by the
Park Service, .does not guar-
antee that such buildings will
not be torn down.
The 1,456-square-foot house
is a two-story frame building
that has been moved at least
once from the old grove, site
of the present Epiphany
Cathedral. Several Higels are
said to have been born in the
house, including Clyde Higel,
who was born in the house in
1908 and later became a
mayor of Venice. His brother,
George Higel Jr., purchased
the house and moved it to its
present site at 811 Laguna
Drive, Venice's Public Infor-
mation Officer Pam Johnson
said.
"When it was moved here,
the wraparound porches
were removed," Heschmneyer
said.
What remains is the first
floor's front porch. Side
porches on the first and sec-
ond floors and the second
floor front porch were re-
moved to transport the house
down the then-dirt road to its
present site, the Realtor said.
In the ensuing years the
house has had a number of
owners, has been converted
to house two families and
used as a rental property.
It has a 13-foot by 17-foot
living room, 11.5-foot by 11-
foot bedroom, 11.5-foot by
10.5-foot kitchen and full
bath on the main floor and
similar spaces on the second


floor. The one-time second
floor kitchen has most recent-
ly been used as a laundry
room.
Most of the flooring is
heart pine, although the bath
and kitchen floors were tiled
sometime in the past decade,
as was the front porch.
Heschmeyer said the walls
are the original horse hair
plaster over lath. Woodwork
throughout the house ap-
pears to be original. With its
decorative comers, the wood&
work is appropriate to the
period of the house.
The home's buyer would
like to see the house in the
hands of someone 'who
would preserve the home's
heritage, just as long as they
do it professionally.
For an appointment to see
the house, call Heschmver at
(9411 485-5454, 18661 800-
1300 or on his cell phone at
(9411544-1222.


Woodwork, including bead-
board wainscotting is
thought to be original to the
1896 house.
