The owners of Sharky's On
The Pier may get more of a
workout than they expected
from exercising an option to
extend their lease with the
ci tV.
The five-year extension
may not be as simple as send-
ing a lener by certified mail
Feb. 22, as issues about con-
struction without a permit
and future expansion plans
remain open.

Bob Anderson to review the
extension request to make
sure it complies with the lease
agreement. Sharky's On The
Pier, based at the Municipal
Fishing Pier, has a contract
through Jan. 19, 2006, and
had through March to ask for
an extension.
All of this will play a role in
massive expansion plans for
restaurant owners Greg No-
vack and Mike Pachota. A
submission to city hall last
year called for more than
doubling seating capacity
and square footage and also
adding a second story.

refund check

The golf course's attorneys say there are too many

Red tide cure tied

The need to get

will keep inventor
Bob Rigby from mar-

BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Word is slowly getting


out about Bob Rigby's se-
cret formula that kills red
tide, and the Venice High
School research that con-
firmed it works. Fox News
will interview Rigby on
Wednesday in preparation
for a segment that is ex-
pected to gain nationwide
coverage of his discovery.
But even though the red
,tide cure by the Venice-
area entrepreneur works,
the application process for
patents is expected to de-


lay large-scale ocean test-
ing for at least two years.
Rigby was told his "elderly
inventor" (over 65) status
will move his patent appli-
cations to the top of the
stack at the U.S. patent
office, but there are no
guarantees.
In the meantime, Rigby
is saving his pennies to pay
for pending foreign pat-
ents, a separate process

Very few people would
turn down a utility refund
check of $7,781.52 for over-
charging for service.
Local attorney E.G. "Dan"
Boone not only declined that
check, but he hand delivered
it in thanks-but-no-thanks
fashion to City Manager
Marty Black.
"I hand delivered the check
back to him (Tuesday) with a
short note saying there are
other things that need re-
solved," Boone said.
Boone characterized nego-
tiations with the city manager
as pleasant and professional.
but that doesn't change the
Venice Golf Association's
belief it has been overcharged
for reclaimed water service in
several ways.
So far the city agrees, and
the debate now is about
refund amounts and how
they will be repaid. Boone
wants to see all of VGA's
money and issues resolved
at once, while the city man-
ager's office is attempting to
knock them out one at a
time.
"Were we lax in doing that?
Yes," Black said. "We've work-
ed hard to resolve those is-
,sues."
Lake Venice Golf Club is on
airport-owned land and oper-


ated by VGA, which pays rent
to the city. The restructuring
of VGA's lease agreement to
meet Federal Aviation Admin-
istration demands led to
much of the controversy.
Slow progress
Last summer, attorneys
with VGA argued the city
promised reduced utility
rates in exchange for signing
an amended lease charging
more rent. City officials coun-
tered by saying no such
promises were made, and the
utility rates would've been
reviewed no matter what.
Discussions all but
stopped last summer when
Mayor Dean Calamaras
accused VGA attorneys of
"gross misrepresentations of
our meetings" and said no
discussions could be held
without City Attorney Bob
Anderson present. Calamaras
issued the directive after
Black returned from a meet-
ing with Boone and VGA
attorneys carrying a file that
said the mayor promised
Black would "be creative in
working on" land deals and
utility rates to benefit the golf
course.

County says yes


in lot dispute


North Port city commissioners still have
to deal with the question of whether the meeting
at which the settlement was reached
violated open-meeting rules.


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


Once again, the decision
rests with North Port.
After a 45-minute discus-
sion Tuesday, Sarasota County
commissioners unanimously
approved an interlocal agree-
ment with North Port to settle
a dispute between the two
governments over the coun-
ty's ownership of more than
2,200 lots in the city.
; The. agreement would set-
tle a, lawsuit filed by the city
against the county in Febru-
ary 2004 to gain ownership of
the lots, which the county
has acquired since 1992 after
former owners failed to pay
property taxes.
North Port city commis-
sioners must still approve the
agreement before it takes
effect.:
Tuesday's action by county
commissioners came after
the two boards met in a joint
meeting on Dec. 7 to attempt
to resolve the dispute, after a
special statutory dispute reso-
lution process at the staff level
failed to achieve a settlement.
The interlocal agreement
approved Tuesday incorporat-
ed the decisions reached by
the two boards to settle the
dispute.
Specifically, the settlement
provides that most of the lots
will be sold with North Port
receiving 55 percent of the
profits and the county taking
the remaining 45 percent,
after deducting the count's
expenses and lost taxes up to
$800,000.
Is it legal?
North Port residents have


raised questions about the
lack of public input and a
possible violation of the Sun-
shine Law because two staff
members from North Port
participated in an executive
session of the city commis-
sion and their attorney, Rob
Robinson.
But Assistant County At-
torney Gary Oldehoff main-
tained that the decisions
resulting from the Dec. 7
meeting were perfectly
legal.
"The public was not pro-
hibited or discouraged from
speaking," Oldehoff said.
"There was no impediment
to them speaking if they
wanted to.".
But, Oldehoff added, the
December meeting was part
of a dispute resolution proce-
dure mandated by state law
to settle disagreements be-
tween governmental bodies
that contemplates only the
two governments meeting in
a public setting with the pub-
lic observing.
As such, Oldehoff said, it's
a different procedure than
the usual public meeting
with input from residents on
the issues.
"But no one was asked,"
said commissioner Nora Pat-
terson.
Saying that he understood
these were typically commis-
sion to commission meetings,
commissioner Jon Thaxion
said, "If the county felt it
needed to have public partici-
pation, we would have done
so prior to the joint meeting.
But the shoe also fits the other
foot and North Port could
have taken public comment
too.

Land swap okayed for Osprey library


Developer Henry
Rodriguez gave the
county land in
exchange for drainage
and stormwater ease-
ment in the adjacent
Bay Street Park.

WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA.COUNTY EDITOR

It's the one area of Sarasota
County without a library, but
that changed on Tuesday.
Sarasota County commis-
sioners unanimously ap-
proved an agreement with
developer Henry Rodriquez,
Sarasota Development Corp.
and The Grand Oak Village II
that will give the county the
land for a library in Osprey.
Under the agreement ap-
proved Tuesday, Rodriquez
will exchange a 15,500-
square-foot parcel in his pro-
posed village in Osprey for a
drainage and stormwater
easement in the adjacent Bay
Street Park.
Using the existing storm-
water pond in the park will let
Rodriquez avoid buying a 1.5-
acre parcel to serve his devel-
opment's stormwater needs.
Both county staff and consul-
tants employed by Rodriquez
said his use of the pond for
stormwater purposes would
'not affect the county's ability
to use it for stormwater runoff
in the future when Bay Street
is widened.

Commissioners were more


"This could jeopardize
what I felt was a very, very
productive meeting. I'felt
that we'd come a long
ways."
"It's a shame that this has
gotten tainted at this point,"
said commissioner Shannon
Staub. "I'm not sure anyone

to providing an additional 65
spots dedicated for library
patrons.
In addition, Libraries Di-
rector Nancy Pike said addi-
tional parking would be avail-
able throughout the village,
all within walking distance of
the library.
Commissioner Shannon
Staub added, that with the
exception of Christmas, ad-
ditional parking would be
available in the new Wal-Mart
currently under development
in Osprey.
"I've been working on this
for a long time and we need a
library in Osprey," said com-
munity leader Judy Johnson.
"When I asked Henry to give


who wants to be financially
prudent would want to go to

dents of North Port are also
residents of the county and I

fair agreement."

"Osprey's waited long and
hard for this facility," said
commissioner Jon Thaxton,
whose district includes the

ground fast. We couldn't have.
picked a better location for
this."
'Honored'
Pike said that locating the
new library within Rodriquez'
proposed mixed-use village
would give the county an
opportunity to construct the
facility in a fashion to serve as
a community meeting place
while making use of tech-
nology and other efficiencies.
"It's a chance to be a 21st-
century library," said resident
Ray Kaiser. "It's an opportun-
ity to rethink the role of the
library in the 21st century."

said commission Chairman
Paul Mercier. "We don't ignore
North Port but we can't seem
to get over the hurdle of

Rodriquez said he was
pleased with the decision of
the commissioners, and was
"very honored" to give the
land to the county for the
library
"I'm extremely happy that
Jon Thaxton, my friend and
neighbor, accepted this do-
nation," said Rodriquez. "It

I always thought it was."

She stopped short of say-
ing pedophilia could not be
cured, but said the recidivism
rate is very high.
"It is very similar to addic-

a compulsion to molest," she
said, "and that is why it re-,

However, Cauffield did not


disagree with a feeling many

1 HOW TO FLOSS
The function of dental floss 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.

Getting an answer from
council members seemed
more difficult than actually
moving the 109-year-old
house. They debated and
- debated, constantly getting
hung up on how much mov-
ing and maintaining the last
pioneer home would cost.
Members even suggested
Black accept the free house,
move it and then see what

"I'd rather not move-the

stant struggle to refrain from

the site. Trammell is a mem-

As for the home at 811
Laguna Drive, Black assured
council the new owner does
not intend to immediately
demolish it. The sale is
expected to be finished by
week's end, and city officials
simply were given the first
offer of a free home.
Based on council's deci-
sion, Black will now say the
city will only accept that free
house as a last resort to save
it.
"Time is not of the es-

advised council. "The owner

United Trinity Methodist
Church to cook the meals and
clean up each day by 11 a.m.
Another group of volunteers
who deliver the food arrives
at 10:30 a.m. and conclude
the runs by noon.
"We can only serve 50 peo-
ple a day because the kitchen
is small. Each route has a
dozen clients. Right now we
have seven people waiting to
get into the program," Good-
cuff said.
Satisfied
To the volunteers, the
Monday-through-Saturday
program is not a chore but a
rewarding experience. Once a
week they pitch in to provide
a healthy meal to shut-ins,
and work with a group of
great people who make the


experience fun.
The program was devel-
oped back in 1972 when a
couple of women decided
North Port needed meals on
wheels. .Katherine England
and Emma Pentz created the
first meals on wheels in North
Port. When Pentz moved out
of the area 20 years ago,
Goodcuff took over.'
When a prospective client
calls and wants meals, Good-
cuff sends someone to gather
more information and check
eligibility requirements.
Clients are charged a nom-
inal fee of $2 for each of the
meals. Attention is paid to
special diets and needs.
"We are not a catering ser-
vice," Goodcuff said. "We do
serve special meals to diabet-
ics; with sugarless desert or


sugar-free cookies. Some
people can't have leafy
greens, or pasta. Most of our
clients, however, receive the
same meal. They seem to be
happy. I think they are satis-
fied."
For many of the Meals on
Wheels clients, it's the only
hot meal of the day. It could
be the only meal for some of
these folks, says Goodcuff.
Watchdogs
The volunteer who delivers
the food also serves as a
watchdog to be sure the client
is OK.
"We've had drivers find
people dead two or three
times," Goodcuff said.

TIDE from page lA
that could take as long as 30
months.
The original application
for a U.S. patent on the red
tide cure was submitted Jan.
14, and the patent is expected
to be issued within a year. But
foreign patent applications
have to be filed afterward,
which means, marine biolo-
gists and other scientists will
be wondering for another two
years just how this potential
cure will affect red tide re-
search, a multi-million dollar
industry; the fishing and
tourism industries; even the
medical industry.
Rigby doesn't have millions
to spend on his research.
"I had two buckets and a
couple of mason jars for my
own testing process," he said.
"That's all I've invested."
As far as anyone can tell,
the only outside money to de-
velop and then prove Rigby's
secret formula works was
provided by the Venice City
Council- a whopping $1,000
contribution that went to-
ward the purchase of a single
science microscope.
In a slurry
Researchers aren't able to
put a dollar figure on the
impact of red tide on the fish-
ing and tourism industry, but
it's safe to say it could poten-
tially reach well into the hun--


dreds of millions even bil-
lions worldwide.
Mote Marine Laboratory's
Center for Ecotoxicology re-
cently published an update
on its red tide research. The
center's director, Dr. Richard
Pierce, is heading up studies
using clay and ozone to
destroy Karenia brevis, the
single-celled plant-like or-
ganism that releases harmful
toxins as it breaks down in the
environment.
The Japanese have been
using clay for years in aqua-
culture pens to get rid of
harmful algal blooms, ac-
cording to Pierce.
Pierce mixes a powdered
clay with water to create a slur-
ry, then sprays it on top of a red
tide blooms. As the slurry set-
tles, it carries the red tide to the
bottom of the ocean. But there
are still some unknowns about
how effective and environ-
mentally sound the process is,
Pierce said.
Ozone, which is also used,
for water purification, is be-
ing tested to see whether it
can help kill red tide blooms.
They've had success in con-
trolled laboratory studies, but
are cautious about its poten-
tial because ozone produces
secondary oxidants in seawa-
ter which can be harmful.
Mote Marine is also work-
ing on a health study to docu-
ment the impact red tide has
on humans with lung prob-


lems.


SUN PHOTO BY JEFF TAVARES,
jtavares@venicegondolier.com
Local Venice inventor, Bob
Rigby, listens to a presenta-
tion by VHS students and
teachers regarding his cure
for red tide.
Restrictions
While the patents are be-
ing filed for, Rigby cannot sell,
offer for sale, or manufacture
his discovery in large doses.
He can't even publish arti-
cles about his 'discovery and
the research that went into it,
Rigby said.
Rigby can, however, con-
tinue to test his secret formu-
la, if the right offer comes by.
Until then, it's going to be a
"poor-body operation," said
Rigby.
"If the U.S. government were
to come forward and want to
partner in ocean testing, I would


consider that," he said, "if all the
patent laws were abided by."
"I could show them how to
build the apparatus and how
to effectively disperse the for-.
mula that kills red tide. They
have all the marine equip-
ment necessary for testing.
"The apparatus to disperse
the formula to kill red tide will
take some tweaking once I
build it, and a lot of testing to
make-sure everything works
like it's supposed to.
The Red Tide Project by
VHS teachers and students,
providing outside confirma-
tion that Rigby's formula
works, is expected to be com-
pleted by the end of school
year. Phase two testing will
document the impact of the
formula on fish and inverte-
brate animals to see if the
organisms are affected or
harmed in any way.
VHS science teachers
Charles Powell and Dan Kelly
anticipate publishing their
findings by theend of summer.
"We want to see if we can
revive sick fish," Rigby said.
"It's not an absolute necessity,
but it's for our own benefit.

Council reviews


VHS red tide grant


BYJJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR


Venice City Council mem-
bers got a glimpse of what
their $1,000 grant to Venice
High School's science depart-
ment may have done elim-
inate red tide.
Science teachers shared
their findings Tuesday during
a 20-minute presentation.
The grant from city council
purchased a high-powered
microscope need to validate
local inventor Bob Rigby's
alleged cure for red tide
blooms.
Turns out it works, accord-
ing to Charles Powell, chair of
the high school science de-
partment.
"We have hopes there
might be something to this,"
Powell told council.
As the Venice Gondolier
Sun first reported,. Venice
High students and the sci-
ence department have been
working to test Rigby's inven-
tion. The first round of tests
show the mixture kills red' dde
blooms, and now they will
test the chemical: mixture's
affect on marine life.


Current red tide
A potential cure is topical
for nearly every person who
uses the beach or Gulf of
Mexico waters. The current
Florida red tide bloom is still
present in varying concentra-
tions from the mouth of Tam-
pa Bay to Lee County and off-
shore to the southwest.
Distribution is patchy, but
the highest concentrations
found this week have been in
Sarasota Bay, Venice and Gas-
parilla Sound, according to
the Fish andWildlife Research
Institute. Fish kills were re-
ported along coastal areas
from Venice to Sanibel Island.
Northern to southeastern
winds are expected through
the weekend. Beach effects will
be patchy and lowto moderate.
Council members asked
how expensive this cure, if it's
ever approved, would be.
Rigby told them the real
cost comes in equipment to
apply the solution miles off
the coast before it reaches
one of Florida's beaches.
That's balanced out by
fishermen having successful
hauls and tourists not being
driven from the beach.

They might not be sending
11 wrestlers to the Class 2AFi-
inais like last year, but nine
isn't too shabby.
The Venice High Indians
have qualified nine matmen
for this week's FHSAA Finals
once again at the Lakeland
Center.
To earn a spot in the presti-
gious finals, a wrestler must
finish in the top four in his
weight class in the regional
tournament.
Venice had four champi-
ons, four second-place finish-
ers and a fourth-placer in the
Region 3 event held last Sat-
urday at Charlotte High.
Of the nine, four have been
to state before.
Sophomore Keith Koziel is
a Lakeland veteran, as this
will be his third finals.
It will also be the third state
finals for junior Jeremie Cook.
This will be the second
time around for junior Brett
Nelson and senior Zach Gau-
dreau.
First-timers include sen-
iors Cory Rittenhouse, Matt
Rossheim, Ricky Heil, Randy
Re and Viktor Vasilevskiy.
The Class 2A Finals will be-
gin Thursday and wrap up
Saturday night.

the opening round at noon
and the first round of wrestle-
backs at 5 p.m. On Friday, the
quarterfinals will be at 10
a.m., wrestlebacks at 2:30
p.m. and the semifinals at 7
p.m. Saturday's slate has wre-
stlebacks at, 10 a.m., fifth and
sixth at 4 p.m., third and
fourth at 4 p.m. and champi-
onships beginning at 6:30
p.m.
There are 16 wrestlers in
each of the 14 weight classes.
Parking at The Lakeland
Center is $5 per day. Admi-
ssion is $7 per session.
Last year, Venice was third
at State in team points behind
Brandon and Countryside.
Venice has beaten Coun-
tryside in a dual and at region
this season, but Brandon is
Still super strong and is the
favorite to repeat as team
champion.
Following is a look at each
of the nine Venice wrestlers at
this year's State Finals:
CORY RITTENHOUSE -
103-pounder won district and
region titles in compiling a
35-6 record. His first-round


opponent is Cody Healy, a 31-
5 senior out of Monsignor

KEITH KOZIEL Koziel
was second in the state at 103
pounds in 1A as an eighth

glet, he was second at 112
pounds in 2A. This year, Ko-
ziel is up to 130 pounds. He

championships and takes a
35-5 record to state. His open-
ing round opponent is Na-
than Robinson, a 27-3 junior
from Haines City.
BRETT NELSON Was
fifth at 135 pounds last year.

Going back over the past
half decade, there have been
a handful of outstanding indi-
vidual wrestling performanc-
es by Venice High athletes
that jump right out at you.
Who can forget March of
2001 when Anthony Liakakos
and Phil Hall won state cham-
pionships at 189 and 215
pounds? Liakakos finished
with an unbeaten record of

25-0.
Then in 2003, there was Le-
vi Duyn, who went a perfect
43-0 in grabbing the 145-
pound title.
And of course, last. year
there was 103-pourider
Shawn Rouhan, who capped
a 42-0 season with individual
gold.
Venice has a few more can-
didates knocking on the door
this year, most notably junior
Jeremie Cook.
Cook enters the state tour-


nament with a record of 41-0
at 189 pounds. He 'has spent
the entire season as the top-
rated 189-pounder in the
state by Floridakids.us
"It's nice that people think
you're that good, but on the
other hand people are always
gunning for the No: 1 guy,"
Cook said. "They want to be
the one that beats you."
Cook has the look of a state

was especially clutch at the
free throw line, sinking 13 of
17 attempts.
In the first meeting, Venice
got off to a horrible start
against Clearwater.
In didn't happen this
time, as the Lady Indians
only trailed by a bucket after
one period. And when Dana
Nostin and Jessica Enander
got hot in the second quar-
ter, Venice was able to wipe
out the deficit and take a
32-29 lead into the locker
room.
Nostin, broke a 26-26 tie
with a free throw with 1:27
remaining before half. She
then hit a layup on a pass
from Gaudreau and then
Nostin popped a three to
make it 3,2-29.
The offense no doubt rose
to the occasion, but stopping
Clearwater's threats was also
key.
Venice got defensive help
on guards Rachel Hammond
and Charity Kidder, leaving
them with little room to oper-
ate. Hammond did get 19
points, but she had trouble


getting into a groove and
down the stretch forced
issues.
Karen Braden, a big girl
with a propensity to shoot
threes, went cold in the fourth
quarter, connecting on just
one of six from the field in
the final session.
"Our .girls executed our
game plan to a T," said as-
sistant coach Gary Halbert.
"I'm so proud of them, It's
too bad they (Clearwater)
don't get to take their fourth
consecutive trip to the Fi-
nal 4. Hopefully, we'll be
there."
Gaudreau hit a three with
6:55 remaining to give
Venice a 55-47 lead, but
Clearwater worked its way
back to a 64-64 tie .with 54
seconds remaining after
Hammond canned a pair of
free throws.
Lady Tornado coach Tom
Shaneyfelt went with full-
court pressure to try to create
a turnover, but was burned
when Kailey Dettmann was
found free underneath for a
layup.


Braden missed a three,
Gaudreau made one of two
free throws, Hammond miss-
ed a drive and Dettman sank
a free throw with 16 seconds
to make it 68-64.
All the Lady Indians played
a role in the win. Nostin fin-
ished with 13 points. Enander
had 11 big ones. Center Lisa
Hough had nine points, in-
cluding a three.
Clearwater, which shot
50 percent in November,

ong. Throw in more than 10
years of mat experience, and
it's no wonder he's putting it
all together this season.
"As a ninth-grader, he was
a scrambler, but he's taken it
to another level," said Venice
head coach Dan Kelly.
Cook showed lots of pro-
mise as a freshman, finishing
40-12 at 152 pounds.
Cook became a super so-
phomore in 2003-2004, win-
ning district and regional
crowns and coming back to
take third place in the state at
171 pounds. His final record
was 41-3.
"Finishing third gave me a
lot more confidence," Cook
said. I worked out real hard.

winning 2004 fish barely
tipped the scales, weighing
only 23 pounds.
The heaviest first-place
"World's Richest" tarpon
weighed 157 pounds, and was
caught in 1997.'
"We're concerned about the
fish being there at that time
of year," said association
president Cappy Joiner. "Earl-
ier would be better. We tried
to schedule it when we could
catch some fish."
The Chamber of Com-
merce holds the "World's
Richest" tournament around
the end of June, in part to
help extend the tourist sea-
son.
But in recent years the fish
haven't been in the Boca
Grande Pass at that time,
Joiner said.
Instead, they're heading
into the gulf to lay their eggs
and are staying away because
of the increased boat traffic
in the pass.
Joiner said the chamber
denied an association request
to reschedule the "World's
Richest" tournament, forcing


the State Finals.
"In wrestling, there's al-
ways going to be people who
can beat you," he said. "I'll
have to wrestle my best.'
After Saturday night, Cook
can concentrate just on base-


the association to withdraw
its support.
Chamber of Commerce
officials could not be reached
for comment.
It is unclear how the 50-
member association's with-
drawal would affect the an-
nual tournament.
But Joiner said some of its
members, who come from
Naples to Tampa, will likely
work both tournaments.
Tournament competitors
pay thousands of dollars to
enter the contest and join
professional guides who nav-
igate boats over the pass' pop-
ular tarpon hangouts.
A winning tarpon can
land a fisherman more than
$100,000.
Joiner said he expects the
first year to be a successful
one for the invitational tour-
nament. The group will likely
limit the event to. 40 or 50
boats.
"I think we'll have a' good
turnout," he said.

need a meal that day. If no
-one answers the door, the dri-
ver is trained to seek out .a
response. If there is, none,
they call the trouble shooter
- Goodcuff.
"If a volunteer driver does-
n't get a response, or thinks
something is wrong they call
me. I go out to the house and
check on the client," Good-,
cuff said.
Deliveries are one area of
the program that could use a
helping hand. A few more vol-
unteers willing to give one
day a week or month would
help, Goodcuff said.
Meals on Wheels of North
Port Inc. receives $2,500 each


year from United Way of
Sarasota County Inc. That
goes toward the $4,000 annu-
al rent where they cook. Other
donations come from area
churches, businesses and
clients who show their appre-
ciation by giving more than
the required cost of the meal.
San Pedro Church just gave
a donation to Meals and
Wheels of North Port, Good-
cuff said.
"We are always apprecia-
tive of the donations that
come in," she said. "We put it
to good use."

LEASE from page lA


extension would take the
lease to 2011 with an option
then to go until 2016, Novack
said.
In November, the Venice
Gondolier Sun reported
building code violations for
construction without a per-
mit concerning a pair of
"chickee huts" on the restau-
rant's patio area. Code board
members gave-the restaurant
owners three months to ob-
tain permits and city council
approval, or else destroy the
huts.
Fines of $100 per day were
supposed to be imposed if
this wasn't done within 90
days, and the huts were still
up as of Tuesday.
"We did file for the applica-
tion for the permits within the
time frame, and we're just
waiting to hear back from the
city manager's office," Novack
said.
That contradicts the rec-
ords of code enforcement
officers, according to John
Patek. His files do not show
any permit applications. The
matter could be on the April 7
code board agenda. Sharky's
has until March 10 to come
into compliance, Patek said.

Expansion plans
Novack and Pachota hope
to expand Sharky's to as many
seats as allowed under cur-
rent parking restrictions.


Initial design plans from six
months ago were to go from
285 seats to 575 and take the
restaurant's area up to 19,265
square feet.
Novack said he is waiting
for the city manager and city
attorney to schedule a meet-
ing to discuss changing the
restaurant's footprint to allow
more parking and expansion.
The owner said portions of
the existing boundary are
drawn into areas requiring
state approval, which is caus-
ing the problem.
Sharky's owners believe
council members will endorse
expansion plans because that
means more money for the
city. Sharky's pays a percentage
of its gross revenue as rent, and
that amounted to $240,765 for
its 2004 rent, based on 2003
sales.
About a third of that mon-
ey goes toward daily Venice,
Municipal Airport operations
because the restaurant is on
airport land, and the rest sup-
ports maintenance of the
fishing pier.
"We're waiting to hear from
them," Novack said. "We're
anxious and we'd like to meet
soon.... Ithinkthe cityin par-
ticular would like a larger
facility because that guaran-
tees them a larger rent, and
we're pressed for 'seating
space, especially with the
tourists in town."

Manasota Scrub Preserve to reopen Thursday


The property was the
first purchased with
funds approved by
Sarasota County voters
for the acquisition of
environmentally
sensitive land.

BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR

In a ceremony Thursday
afternoon, Sarasota County
will reopen the 145-acre
Manasota Scrub Preserve in
North Englewood. .
The Manasota Scrub Pre-
serve grand opening pro-
gram, which begins at 2 p.m.,
will 'include guest speakers
and exhibits explaining land
management activities that
are occurring on the property.
Sarasota County Natural Re-
sources' staff will lead nature
walks highlighting the land-
scape and the wildlife within
the preserve.
The purchase of the prop-
erty by the county in 2000 was
the first using proceeds from
a .25-mill tax overwhelmingly
approved by county voters in
1999 to purchase environ-
mentally sensitive lands. Un-
der the program, the county
has acquired about 15,000
acres of sensitive land, much
of it in the South County area,
including about 85 percent of
the land bordering the My-
akka River.
The county purchased the
tract fromVarkis A. Markarian
of Cranston, R.I., for $2.6 mil-
lion, which was less than the
$2.7 million appraisal and the
$3.1 million sought by Mark-
arian.
The land is located at the
southwest corner of State
Road 776 and Manasota
Beach Road. The site is within
the Manasota Scrub acquisi-
tion area and contains the
headwaters of the west
branch of Forked Creek,
which flows into Lemon Bay.
The property contains a
mix of longleaf and slash pine
flatwoods, scrub and freshwa-
ter wetlands, providing shel-
ter for gopher tortoises and
indigo snakes both pro-
tected species under state
and federal laws. Other listed


species observed on the site
include wood storks, sandhill
cranes and roseate spoon-
bills.
The property is also a
potential site for the Florida
mouse and gopher frogs.
Florida scrub jays also have
established homes in the site.
The preserve will be open
for nature-based recreation
and environmental program-
ming during daylight hours
throughout the year.
Thursday's ceremony is

Townhouses planned for rehab facility site


A developer hopes to put 36 residences on the
property currently home to the former Venice
Rehab Center on Nokomis Avenue.


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

"We want to create an
island within the island," com-
mented Bill Martin, owner of
In Island L.LC., who acquired
a former nursing home and
adjoining land at Turin Street
and South Nokomis Avenue
last week.
Vere L.L.C. sold the proper-
ty for $1.8 million, confirmed
Beverly Weltzien of Michael
Saunders in Venice.
The 178-bed nursing facil-
ity, Venice Rehab Center, 437
S. Nokomis Ave., was oper-
ated by Universal Health
Management until it closed
suddenly in May 2004. Resi-
dents were given notice they
had 30 days to find new
homes after the state issued
citations for unsafe and un-
professional care.
Universal had acquired it
from Integrated Health Serv-
ices of Venice.
The property was used for
a very short period in August
to accommodate victims of
Hurricane Charley, with local
volunteers providing tempo-


rary assistance.
A Bostonian, Martin re-
cently purchased a home last
year on Casey Key intending
to become a year-round resi-
dent. Since 1970 he has de-
veloped, constructed, design-
ed and renovated properties
in the inner city of Boston.
During dithe 80s he did a lot
of construction, but the 36
townhouses he proposes for
the 2 acres on Nokomis Ave-
nue will be an exciting project.
"The number is really up
to the city, but I left a recent
meeting feeling very confi-
dent and very good about the
whole idea," said Martin.
Open to suggestions
His first intention is to get
friendly with the neighbor-
hood, people and space.
When Weltzien showed him
around, he said, he felt it was
very spiritual because there
had been a lot of people in
the nursing home.
Before he tears the build-
ing down he wants to hold
an open house for people to
come back to visit the sites
where they may have had a


loved one or family member.
Martin is meeting with the
architect, and when that
process is completed he will
present it to the city. Approv-
al recently was granted for 18
units per acre, which is an
indication that 36 units would'
fit in that spot, but it is up to
the city, said Weltzien.
Martin says he is open to
ideas from people in the com-
munity at this point, as he
does not want to put some-
thing on the site that does
not belong there. He will not
be bringing any ideas down
from Boston.
No cookie cutter
Luxurious townhouses to
fit in the community are
planned, but Martin's chal-
lenge is to create something
that is "homey" within this
commercial strip, which is
away from the water. It is
wonderfully positioned to be
a little community, said
Martin, because people can
walk five minutes and be right
in the business district, at the
library or art center, or across
the street for shopping.
Prices will be what the pre-
sent market is for 1,800- to
2,500-square foot, three-bed-
room townhouses, some-
where in the $750,000 to
$850,000 range.


-, ~"77-M-


SUH PHOTO BY' ROGER BUTTON
If Bill Martin can get his plans approved, this former nursing home will give way to as many as
36 luxury townhouses.


Weltzien said there hasn't
been anything quite like this
in this location.
"You are going to see nice
lush gardens, a very pristine
outstanding building that
will not be a cookie cutter,"
she said. "It will have per-
sonality, probably because
of the way it will have to be


layered.
"These up-market prop-
erties will probably have pri-
vate elevators and garages to
give a sense of personal own-
ership. People will go into a
gated area, not walled up, but
beautifully designed with
pillars, entering in a sort of
spiral so they get a sense that


the area they are in belongs
to them.
"It's not going to be a
walk-in complex, but people
will go around fountains and
water to get away from the
existing commercial aspect.
Shrubs are not going to be

soldiered or regimented in
any way."

OUR VIEW



North Port still tight-lipped on lot deal


North Port citizens have another chance
tonight to voice their concerns about
the way Sarasota County and the city
are dividing proceeds, from selling lots for
which taxes have not been paid.
But the scope of their participation will be
limited.
Tonight's 7 p.m. special city commission
meeting is for citizens (and commissioners)
to discuss (with possible action) whether the
Dec. 7 joint meeting between the city and
county commissions was held "within the
Florida state statutes" that is, whether it
complied with the rules regulating public
meetings. .
That's the only subject up for discussion.
Keeping the audience (if not the commission)
on track will test Chair Richard Lockhart.
City Attorney Rob Robinson will certainly


have an interpretation of those rules, but so
will some learned citizens.
This is onlythe latest chapter in the saga of
the escheated lots lots that are within the
city limits, but that the county took for non-
payment of taxes.
Someone (maybe a lot of someones) is
certain to point out that the statutes say that-
North Port is entitled to all 2,218 lots. At the
Dec. 7 meeting, though, the two commis-
sions agreed that, after the county gets about
$800,000 in taxes and fees, North Port is enti-
tled to 55 percent and the county 45 percent
of the proceeds from the properties in ques-
tion.
North Port had been trying to get a joint
meeting for some time; in fact, one was can-
celed. The city wanted the meeting in North
Port so the city's residents could easily attend.


Instead, the Dec. 7 meeting was held in
Sarasota, meaning that if residents couldn't
drive to the meeting (held in the daytime,
incidentally), their lone alternative was a
Sarasota County Area Transportation bus.
Was that against state statutes?
Very few a handful ,at most North
Port citizens were in the audience. Actually,
the room wouldn't have been able to handle
many more. Was the availability of the meet-
ing against state statutes?
Spectators at the meeting did not get an
opportunity to speak. The North Port City
Commission always provides time for citizen
input; the Sarasota County Commission does
not.
The format of the meeting also did not
present a time when such discussion would
have been meaningful. The meeting was


called so that the issue of dividing the lots
could be mediated, so that legal action would
not be necessary. It was a confrontational
meeting with a mediator facilitating the dis-
cussion. Twice, each group of commissioners
went into executive session to work on strat-
egy and to revise offers. Was any of this
against Florida statutes?
Robinson and the county attorneys are
working on an interlocal agreement that will
delineate how the process of selling the lots is
to continue.
The city could gain about $20 million once
the sale is completed, so this is no small issue.
Anyone who wants to follow the proceed-
ings, if not contribute to the discussion,
would be well advised to be at tonight's meet-
ing, which we hope will answer more ques-
tions than it raises.


limits


reform needed


ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST

Venice City Council needs
to change the zoning code to
limit heights and to handle
height exceptions itself, as the
Feb. 15 meeting of the plan-
ning commission. unfbrtu-
nately, made obvious.
I want to make clear, how-
ever, this is not a personal
attack on the planning com-
mission members, nor does it
impugn their sincerity, hard
work or volunteer service to
the community.
I have heard members say
they felt unfairly criticized,
unappreciated and generally
devalued, so I want to express
appreciation for their inten-
tions and public service,
while reserving the right to
disagree with their decisions.
Based on'an earlier meet-
ing of council and the com-
mission, city planning staff
was directed to develop a
plan to "sustain neighbor-.
hood compatibility."
City Planning Director
Tom Slaughter indicated
three strategies:
limiting height in inten-
sive zoning districts through
height restrictions
floor area ration limits to
control scale and massing of
building structures
"conditional use" review
requiring council approval of.
height increases in zoning
districts that currently pro-
vide allow special exceptions
by the planning commission
The commission rejected
staff's proposal to limit
heights to 35 feet within a tar-
geted zone south of
Barcelona Avenue; north of
Granada Avenue, east of the
Esplanade and west of
Armada Road. That area is
essentially one block on each
side of West Venice Avenue
and includes that street.
Instead, the members dis-
cussed greater heights 45
to 55 feet including addi-
tional allowances for 10 feet
of parking under some build-
ings, and proposed staff
redraw the proposal in that
regard.
City Manager Marty Black
said that was not in order,
since council had assigned
the task and the commission
was to provide input, not
determine the nature of the
*proposal.
Most surprising to me, not
a single commissioner spoke
in favor of the 35-foot limit.


Further, commission mem-
bers argued vigorously with a
resident who said the majori-
ty of citizens supported a 35-
foot limitation.
While no poll of all the citi-
zens has been taken, the over-
whelming message of the
participants at the Envision
Venice meetings has been to
protect the "small-town feel-
ing," to preserve "the scale" ol
buildings and to see the
downtown as central to the
community's nature.
With the exception of three
witnesses Don O'Connell,
Jeffrey Boone and James
Collins, all with direct in-
volvement in building oiwner-
ship or development I have
heard no voices from the citi-
zenry asking for higher build-
ings, whether 45 feet, 55 feet
or more. Many voices have
opposed higher structures
and the "exceptions" granting
them.
I spoke with Mayor Dean
Calamaras and council mem-
ber Bill Willson following the
meeting because of what
Collins, a non-attorney em-
ployee of the Boone law firm,
said in response, to a citizen
suggestion that, since the
commission doubted how
citizens felt about the 35-foot
limit, a referendum could be
held. Collins said the recent
election (in which Calamaras
andWillson were elected) had
provided a referendum since
both candidates favored
buildings taller than 35 feet.
Bill Willson said Collins'
remark, which he heard while
in the audience, was a "total
mischaracterization." Cala-
maras said essentially. the
same was true for him. He
favors, as does Willson, the
35-foot limitation along West
Venice Avenue and near sin-
gle-family housing. He said
he had made his views clear
during the. campaign.
Both said there were some
areas in the city where taller
buildings might be allowed,
but not in the areas in ques-
tion during the commission
meeting. Collins declined to
comment when offered the
opportunity.
A second item on the agen-
da was the recommendation
to have council, rather than
the planning commission,
approve exceptions or "condi-
tional uses."
Council has made its wish-
es clear on this matter, first by
approving "de novo," or com-
plete, review of commission
decisions on height excep-
tions. More recently was the
request to staff to develop the
proposal to transfer approval
directly to council.
The commission did not
like that recommendation
-either, but the consensus of
remarks was, if council wants

Ask for our opinions before you make plans


Editor:
Bob Vedder's Sunday column informed us that Vero Beach
residents vote on height variances. This seems like a great idea
to me.
Venice has a very odd way of doing things. Take the new park
north of Caspersen. The parks board submits a proposed con-
tract to the voters, who then critique. Shouldn't there be input
before a plan is adopted, followed by competitive bids?
The $2.3 million renovation of the old sewage plant calls for
more than $500,000 spent on grass, a parking lot for 250 cars
(this is almost five times the 54-car library parking lot on
Nokomis, if one wants to envision the extent of 250 cars) and a
concrete wall so we can watch movies on -some nice, hot,
muggy, mosquito-filled, noisy evening. These and other
aspects of the plan were objected to by residents during our
three-minute inputs.
To my way of thinking, in a democratic society decisions
should be made from the bottom up, not from the top down.
The city really only gives lip service to citizen input when cri-
tiques of a "done deal" mean that we must accept this pater-
nalistic mode of spending such a large sum of money. Of
course, after the critiques, the board approved submitting the
plan to city council.
I suppose we can only sit back and take it as decision after
decision is made to give variances to the Venice height ordi-
nance. Right? After all, father knows best.

Fight against Planned
Parenthood not oer
Editor:
As part of the decision to
allow two different Life
Management Science classes,
Dr. Carol Todd said she didn't
want Planned Parenthood to
be singled out. The new poli-
cy will now read "LMS B will
have guest speakers," period,
and not "guest speakers such
as Planned Parenthood."
Are parents to believe
Planned Parenthood will be
clearly listed on the opt-in
forms when they can't even
include the name on the poli-
cy?
We are putting our chil-
dren on the slipperiest slope'
of all when we allow the local
abortionist access to our stu-
dents. They can say over and
over "we don't teach about
abortion," but with the school
board stamp of approval, by
allowing guest speakers, and
continuing to hand out a "'Just
Call for Help" card with their
number as the first resource,
there is no real education
regarding that organization
other than at a grassroots
level by numerous concerned
parents and citizens.
This practice puts our stu-
dents at the doors of the
Planned Parenthood clinic
without any knowledge as to
the grave consequences of
this action. We will continue

A :FE VIOLATION? CALL 207-1111.


Drop the beer, start the mower


No pride. I want to make a comment about a lot of the front
lawns in South Venice.' Personally I think it's a crying shame
that you have people sitting on property so close to the Gulf of
Mexico and they can't put their cigarettes and their beer down
and go out and mow the weeds that are 18 inches high in their
front yards. I just can't understand that someone wouldn't take
a little bit of pride in the place where they live. Sometimes you
see kids on their bicycles taking better care of their bikes than
these people take of their property. It just seems to me that
even a poor person would want to have something that looks
presentable and something they could be proud of. I'm not
saying you have to have a golf course lawn, but when the weeds
are 18 inches tall with flowers on them that look like small
shrubs, it's time to run the mower. I think that's just a sign of
laziness.


Waning. How sad to see
the Tiki Bar is going to be his-
tory soon. It seems like all old
Florida is on the wane and
fast.
Had enough. I've had just
about all I can take of people
in Florida slamming the
snowbirds. We drove down
here from the North without a


problem, so don't blame all
your traffic accidents on the
snowbirds. What would hap-
pen if you didn't have our
snowbird money? Many of
your stores and restaurants
would close. Mr. Professional
Driver, get out there and show
some of these Floridians what
turn signals are for. Treat us

nice or we'll go elsewhere.
Trigger it. I'm calling to
complain about the traffic
light on the north side of the
north bridge at U.S. 41 Busi-
ness and Harbor Lights/Morn-
ing Star Drive. Although I can
understand the need for a
light there, I think it should
have a trigger so the light only
changes when there's a car
wanting to get out on Busi-
ness 41. Also, when the light
turns red for the cars on U.S.
41.Business, it stays red far too
long. Please, someone do
something about this.
Other parts. The main hos-
pital is sold, but what happens
to the other parts? Did the
Elephant's Trunk Gift Shop get
sold? And what happens now
to all the money they collect?
Does it go to the for-profit hos-
pital? As a volunteer, I cannot
find out. Can you?
Where did it go? Venice
Hospital was sold to a profit-
making hospital and all us
volunteers are supposed to
keep working free for a profit
outfit. How much money did
Bon Secours make selling the
place? I think us volunteers
should know where our hours
and money went or are going
to go. Please find out for all
700 of us volunteers at the
Venice Hospital.

Levine allowed to complain


BYJJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

Exclusion of resident com-
ments was never city council's
intention when the latest
appeals process for height
exceptions was created.
That may have been what
they've done in creating the
"De Novo Review" where any-
one willing to pay $300 can
challenge a planning com-
mission decision.
Council members were
unconcerned with lawsuits
and want the chance to con-
sider whether or not a build-
ing at 215-217 W. Venice Ave.
can be given an extra story
and exceed the height cap by
9 feet.
"We should be the final
authority on this," council
member Bill Willson said.
However, the ordinance's
wording states the person
must be aggrieved, and by
legal definitions, being mad
like resident Herb Levine is
about a four-story downtown

may not be enough.
Council members agreed
one by one, and Vice Mayor
John Moore wanted to go so
far as to order City Attorney
Bob Anderson rescind his
request for Levine and prop-
erty owners submit briefings
by Thursday.
Anderson asked Levine to
explain what about the height
exception causes him to be
aggrieved, thus in legal stand-
ing to appeal, and for the
property owners and their
attorney, Greg Roberts, to file
a brief stating why Levine is


not aggrieved.
The plan was to review
their written arguments and
then issue a decision, accord-
ing to Anderson, and avoid
potential lawsuits by owners
claiming their property rights
were violated.
"If you're going to mess
with downtown, I'm aggriev-
ed," council member John
Simmonds said. "Downtown
is everybody's backyard."

STORY BY DICK DODDERIDGE* GUEST WRITER

tarting in Chicago with four mem-
bers, Rotary International now
serves the world with 1,220,000
members in 32,000 clubs in 166


countries.


On a cold and windy day in
February 1905, a 37-year-old
attorney named Paul Harris
invited three friends to a,
meeting in room 711 of the
Unity Building in downtown
Chicago.
Harris had an idea to form
a club where business leaders
could meet regularly to make
new friends and exchange
experiences. That evening of
Feb. 23, 1905, is considered to,
be the very first Rotary Club
meeting. The concept was
simple: membership was lim-
ited to one representative
from each business and pro-
fession, meetings were held
once a week at the office of a
member and programs were
simply discussions about
their businesses and what"
was going on in Chicago. The
word Rotary was not used
that night, but when they
began to rotate their meeting
places the word was logical as
was the cogwheel emblem,
which was formally approved
in 1922.
Harris' idea was a good one
and the club soon attracted
more successful business-
men. By the end of 1905 they
had 30 members.
Interestingly, Harris de-
clined to be the club's first
president and did riot serve
until two years later. Early 'n
the members realized that
they could not succeed as just
,a social club, but needed to
provide service to their com-
munity. Thus was born the
oldest and largest service
organization in the world.
Their first project was to build


in downtown Chicago the
city's first public restroom. In
1908 a member of that club
happened to be in San Fran-
cisco on business. By chance
he met a San Francisco attor-
neywho was intrigued by the
Rotary idea. He helped start a
second club in San Francisco
and then a third in Oakland.
The success of these three
clubs spread by word of
mouth from one city to an-
other, with clubs then being
formed in Seattle, Los An-
geles, NewYork City and Bos-
ton. Soon, Rotary returned to
the Midwest with club
number 12 in St. Louis, num-
ber 13 in Kansas City, and
number 14 in Lincoln, Neb.
Within a decade hundreds of
Rotary clubs conducted thou-
sands of projects with the
common objectives of com-
munity service and ethical
business practices.
Early in its history Rotary
established the Four-Way Test
as its code of conduct
"Of all the things we think,
say, or do: 1. Is it the truth? 2.
Is it fair to all concerned? 3.
Will it build goodwill and bet-
ter friendships? 4) '\rUl it be
beneficial to all concerned?"
This is recited at every weekly
meeting by virtually every
Rotarian in the world.
In 1910 the National Asso-
ciation of Rotary Clubs held
its first convention; Paul Har-
ris was elected president and
ser,'ed for two years. That
same year Rotary became
Rotary International with the
formation of the first non-
United States club in Win-

nipeg, Canada. The first Ro-
tary Club outside of North
America was chartered in
Dublin, Ireland. in 1911. The
first Rotary Club in a non-
English-speaking coun try was
formed in Havana, Cuba in
1916.
Today Rotary has more
than 31,000 clubs with
1,220,000 members in 166
countries. Some 62 percent of
Rotary members live outside
the United States.
The Rotary Club of Venice-
Nokomis, club number 4346,
was charted on Dec. 26, 1947.
Its first president was Jamrnes T.
.Blalock, who also was the first
elected mayor of Venice. Bla-
lock Park, just west of the Ven-
ice Public Library, was named
for him and is marked with a


Rotary monumtient. The club
now has more than 100 men
and women members. Its
current president is John Ry-
an, president and CEO of the
Venice Area Chamber of
Commerce. For 13 years the
club has sponsored the Ven-
ice-Nokomis Art Festival held
in January on the festival
grounds of the Venice Mu-
nicipal Airport. The event has
raised more than $350,000 for
Venice area youth charities.
Three years ago the club
initiated the Rotary Futures
program at Venice High
School. Located in a building
on the campus, this program
provides a full range of
resources to assist students in
preparing for college and in
applying for college scholar-
ships.
The Rotary Club of South
Venice was sponsored by
Venice-Nokomis in 1975. The
club has some 50 members;
its president is attorney David
Cornish. Among its programs,
the club supports the Salva-
tion Army Food and Toy pro-


ject and Loveland Center, and
provides college scholarships.
This year the two Venice clubs
have a joint project to honor
the centennial of Rotary. The
project will provide a gazebo
shelter 'for the Venetian
Waterway Park.
Members of the Venice-
Nokomis Rotary meeting
each Thursday at noon at
Grace United Methodist
Church. Members of the
Rotary Club of South Venice
meeting each Tuesday morn-
ing at 7:15 a.m. at the Holiday
Inn on North U.S. 41 Bypass.
In 1917 a Rotary Endow-
ment fund was started with a
contribution of $26.50 from
the Rotary Club of Kansas
City, and in 1928 The Rotary
Foundation was formally
established. The fund grew
very little during the Depres-
sion and World War II. With
the death of Harris in 1947 at
age 79, memorial gifts poured
in and the foundation greatly
expanded its senice activi-

SOUTH NEWS


Some teenagers require more


attention to help them learn


LYNN REIFERT
CORRESPONDENT


Do you have questions
relating to your child's educa-
tion? Do you want to voice an
opinion about what's hap-
pening in our schools? This
column is focused on answer-
ing common questions and
sharing views on education.

The mind is a terrible thing
to waste. Many teenagers give
up on school because it is
hard for them. They are con-
vinced that they are not smart
enough, so they shut down
and quit trying.
They don't understand
how one could be smart and
still find it difficult to get
through school. So, they
equate doing poorly in school
with being stupid. They hate
school, because it makes
them feel badly about them-
selves, and they can't wait to
get out into the real world.
By the time a child has
struggled all the way through
elementary school his acade-
mic confidence is most likely
very low. His skills are weak.
His attitude and 1 behavior
may have also been negative-
ly affected during the process.
He has probably heard
from teachers and parents, on

more than one occasion, that
he appears bright and should
be performing better. The fact
that he isn't reaching his po-
tential may have given them a
reason to accuse him of being
lazy. It certainly can appear
that this is the case.
The adults in his life may
not have realized that there
are other reasons for his
inability to do his schoolwork.
Teenagers are not known for
openly sharing their prob-
lems with adults. Instead,
they may skip school, or get in
trouble so they can be sent to
in-school suspension (I.S.S.),
where they can sleep. They
themselves are not likely to
understand why school is
hard for them, and what they
need to make it easier.
So, a lack of understanding
and communication make ,it
very difficult to help the
teenager, who though he may
be ready to learn, is not able
to do so because his environ-
ment is hindering him.
Most teenagers who are
having trouble in school are
unable to explain that, due to
the way they process infor-
mation and because of their
learning style and personality
traits, they need:
Understanding teachers
who are sensitive to their spe-
cial needs and talents, and are
nurturing, yet firm
A learning environment
that is free from distraction
Extra time and assistance
to complete assignments
Extra explanation and
practice when learning new
concepts
Additional review of skills
requiring sequential steps, to
commit them to memory

to gain acceptance elsewhere.

Weed killers hurting



estuary, scientist says


BY GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER


Somewhere, in a lengthy
study on the water quality of
the entire Everglades system,
government scientists report-
ed that agricultural weed
killers had been found miles
away in the Caloosahatchee
River.
To scientist Judith Hushon,
a consulting scientist who
studied the loading of pesti-
cides into Charlotte Harbor
for the Conservancy of South-
west Florida, that should have
raised a red flag.
Weedkillers in the water
pose a threat to seagrasses
and other important aquatic
life, she pointed out.
"Think about what the job
of an herbicide is: to kill vege-
tation," she said.
But, the data apparently
triggered no action by either
the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection or
the U.S. Environmental Pro-
tection Agency, Hushon said.
"It's hidden in a report and
it's a one-liner, so it gets over-
looked," she explained.
Hushon called for federal
government action now,
however, to analyze the im-
pact of the agricultural pesti-
cides. Her comments came
during a presentation Tues-
day at the Charlotte Harbor
Watershed Summit.
To analyze the threat that
pesticides pose to the estuary,
Hushon gathered data on
how much pesticides are
used by different groups,

I-


from agriculture to golf cours-
es.
She coupled that informa-
tion with data on the toxicity
of the compounds. That
enabled her to calculate a
score for the risk.
Hushon also reviewed data
from the South Florida Water
Management District's Pest-
icide Monitoring Program.
Ongoing since 1980, the dis-
trict has been testing waters
for the chemicals.
Hushon found that agri-
culture has "by far" the great-
est impact on the region's
waters, followed by lawn care,
mosquito control and golf
course maintenance.
Her study also found that
row crops, particularly toma-
toes and peppers, generate
the most pesticide run-off.
The levels of pesticides
also spike periodically. The
first spike occurs with the first
heavy rains of spring. The
rains flush residue from the
fields and groves, Hushon
theorized.
Other spikes occur
throughout the rainy season
because growers are draining
stormwater, she said.
Fish and insects are the
most likely animals to be
affected by the poisons, fol-
lowed by birds, Hushon
said.
The water district's data,
however, cited only five pesti-
cides at measurable levels in
the Caloosahatchee River -
and all.five are agricultural
weed killers. They include:
ametryn, atrazine, bromacil,


norflurazon and simazine.
Surprisingly, three of those
chemicals are only used on
sugar cane fields, which aren't
found in the Charlotte Harbor
watershed, Hushon said.
Those chemicals find their
way into the river after sugar
growers drain their fields into
ditches. The stormwater is
.then pumped to Lake Okee-
chobee.
Once the lake gets full, typ-
ically each fall, the water
management district opens
gates to discharge the excess
into the Caloosahatchee Riv-
er, Hushon explained.
Agricultural pesticides are
designed to go on killing
throughout a growing season.
"You are going to see our
herbicides turn up as one of
our biggest problems in
Southwest Florida," she said.
"If we're measuring herbi-
cides in the Caloosahatchee,
that's a problem."
Herbicides are also likely to
be found in Shell and Prairie
creeks, which also traverse
agricultural areas, Hushon
said.
The U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency has calcu-
lated the toxic effects of hun-
dreds of chemicals. But, the
toxicity of atrazine, the active
ingredient in the popular
weed killer Roundup, has
never been calculated, Hush-
on said.
"It seems to me, EPA needs
to be re-looking at this,"
Hushon said.

l.V.M.S.: Big smiles



in small places


DAR honors winners


of history essay contest


BY JENNIFER FRYER
AND SKYLAR SELLITTI
ISLAND VILLAGE MONTESSORI SCHOOL

New parents and visitors
all seem to ask the same ques-
tion, "Why are the kids so
happy at Island Village?" In
order to answer them we
interviewed some of our stu-
dents and staff. They had
some pretty good theories of
their own; all useful in our
quest for the answer.
"Cleaning my classroom
is my favorite part of the
whole day," said J.J. Amber
enjoys having free time with
her friends in the afternoons.
However, Ben enjoys doing
his work and learning new
lessons.
There are many activities
at I.VM.S. The list includes:
Venice Garden Club garden
project, computer classes,
NiceNet Internet Project, and
EO.R.C.E. leadership semi-
nars, just to name a few.
We also have an aftercare
program, which has a special
training program for upper


elementary students called
the C.I.T. (counselors in train-
ing) program. C.I.T. students
help the adult counselors in
many ways. It seems like a
good way to get the older
students involved in com-
munity service.
I.VM.S also provides two
-pre-school classes if parents
wish to have their child in-
volved in Montessori at an
early age. The belief at Mon-
tessori is that all students
should learn together; for
example, third-, fourth- and
fifth-graders are all in the
same classroom.
One thing the fourth- and
fifth-grade students enjoy is
the G.VC. (Global Virtual
Classroom) program. This
activity is done on comput-
ers and each school partici-
pating talks to tw6 different
schools around the world.
After getting to know each
other, we start creating a Web
site together. Last year Island
Village's very own older stu-
dents won third place in the
G.VC. awards and the creator


of this program personally
awarded us the trophy.
The teachers at Island
Village also had something
to say. Ms. Jo-Anna said,
"The thing that makes me
smile is the respect for the
Earth, land and overall envi-
ronment. Also the way con-
flicts are resolved."
Ms. Mary Beth said, "The
thing I like about this school
is that I get to work with the
kids more one-on-one and I
get to work with Montessori
materials."
Another event the children
enjoy is lunch. A majority of
the classes eat outside and
enjoy their lunch with friends
in a natural environment.
As you can see, the chil-
dren at I.VM.S. have many
reasons to smile, we have
only named a few. We invite
you to the campus to experi-
ence our smiles for your-
selves.
EDITOR'S NOTE: This article
was written by students at Island
Village Montessori School.

One of the most import-
ant tests your student takes
isn't given in a classroom.
Nutritionists say it's given in
the cafeteria and a growing
number of schools are help-
ing kids get ready for it.
Recent studies indicate
childhood obesity is reaching
epidemic proportions. Dis-
eases, such as type 2 diabetes,
that were previously only
associated with obese adults
now affect thousands of
school-aged children.
Today's students are faced
with food choices in the
cafeteria ranging from candy
bars and potato chips to
apples and skim milk. Studies
show the foods they choose
to eat at school can play a
major role in their overall
health and weight. That's one
reason why many of today's
schools teach children to
think before they eat and
show them how to make


smarter food choices.
Perhaps surprisingly, one
of the most effective teach-
ing tools has been the
school vending machine.
The machines carry a wide
array of snacks, including
fresh and dried fruit, granola
bars, milk, pretzels and pop-
corn. Nutritionists say the
machines give students the
chance to learn to make
smart snacking decisions -
a healthy habit that can
stay with a student for the
rest of his or her life.
To help parents, teachers
and students learn the im-
portance of choosing a bal-
anced diet, the National
Automatic Merchandising
Association (NAMA) recently
launched the Balanced for
Life Campaign. The educa-
tional initiative was designed
to help slow skyrocketing
childhood obesity rates by
teaching people the impor-
tance of nutrition and physi-
cal activity.


The campaign includes a
variety of tools such as the
color-coded Snackwise Nu-
trition Rating System devel-
oped at Columbus Chil-
dren's Hospital in Ohio.
Smart snack choices com-
bined with physical activity
are the emphasis of the ini-
tiative.
When it comes to staying
active, the campaign stress-
es the fact that kids don't
need to hit the treadmill to
stay fit. Instead, NAMA sug-
gests parents keep in mind
that fun activities such as
dancing, playing basketball,
or even taking a few laps
around the mall can count
as exercise.
It's hoped that encourag-
ing children to stay active
and giving students a bal-
anced variety of food in
vending machines will help
them learn, about the impor-
tance of a balanced diet.

ents of each of its members.
The negative consequences
for allowing so many of our
youth to go through life
unaware of their possibilities
are costly. The cost is incurred
by each individual, who could
have been more successful
had they understood their
own potential, and by society
as a whole.
Our communities are also
negatively impacted by hav-
ing to deal with the ramifica-
tions of young citizens, who
because they do not feel good
about themselves, cause trou-
ble rather than contribute.
Though our schools have
long attempted to help bright
children who struggle with
learning, they have not been
entirely successful at motivat-
ing and educating those chil-
dren. This is because they
have not come up with a cre-
ative, effective way of teach-
ing those students who need
non-traditional methods and
environments to maximize
their learning potentials. It's
no wonder why these stu-
dents get into trouble.
During the State of the
Union Address, the president
spoke of the need for commu-
nities to focus on our most-at-
risk youth. Mrs. Bush is lead-
ing a new outreach effort to
focus on young Americans,
especially young men, to help
ensure a successful future.
To ensure a successful
future, schools need to edu-
cate all children in such a way
that they are able to learn to
the best of their abilities.
Educators must take a look at
how to meet the needs of stu-
dents who cannot learn best
in the traditional school envi-
ronment, then make innova-
tive changes which will
inevitably improve the lives of
these individuals, therefore,
the state of our union.

ties. One of these new pro-
jects was a polio eradication
program in the Philippines.
That project was so successful
that the worldwide Polio-Plus
program was started in 1985.
Since then Rotary has pro-
vided more than $500 million
and tens of thousands of Ro-
tary volunteers to administer
the vaccine to nearly every
child in the world. Today the
world is 99 percent free of
polio and the only remaining
polio zones are in countries at
war and with inaccessible
areas.
The goal is to have a com-
pletely polio-free world by the
end of 2005 and Rotary has
just concluded a special fund-
raising program to provide an
additional $80 million for the
difficult final phase of eradi-
cation.
PolioPlus is only one part
of the humanitarian and edu-
cational activities of The
Rotary Foundation. With the
mission of world understand-
ing and peace, the foundation
funds programs around the
world to combat hunger, dis-
ease, illiteracy, blindness,
homelessness and to provide
relief for the victims of natural
disasters.
Thousands of World Com-
munity Service projects are
conducted each year to aid
impoverished areas with
clean drinking water, sanita-
tion systems, health care,
food, school supplies and
other vital needs.
Much of this funding
comes from the Paul Harris
Fellowship program, which
honors Rotarians for contri-
butions of $1,000 or more.
In 1947. Rotary established
the Ambassadorial Scholar-
ship program, which has
become the world's largest
privately funded internation-
al scholarship program for
university studies.
Since then more than
36,000 students have benefit-
ed from the program, which
now provides up to $25,000
for a year of study in a foreign
country. In recent years three
different students from Ven-

ice have been awarded schol-
arships for study in Italy,
Greece and Mex-ico.
A similar program offers
scholarships to fund teachers
of the mentally, physically
and educationally impaired.
In 1965 Rotary inaugurated
the Group Study Exchange
(GSE) program that provides
young, non-Rotarian com-
munity leaders a month of
study in a foreign country.
They are hosted by local Ro-
tarians.
Several Venice residents
have participated and this
area has been visited by
groups from countries such
as Germany, Argentina, Japan
and England. GSE alumni
now number more than
46,000.
Another major Rotary pro-
gram is Interact, a high school
club that promotes leader-
ship and community service
among students.
There are more than
224,000 Interact members in
9,775 clubs in the .world,
including a very active club at
the Venice High School.
Rotary International has


- long been involved in inter-
national programs for peace
and understanding.
In the late 1940s Rotarians
assisted in the formation of
the United Nations and
UNESCO.
More recently, Rotary es-.
tablished the Rotary Centers
for International Study locat-
ed in seven universities
around the world.
Last year the Rotary Foun-
dation provided more than
$95 million in funding for
health, hunger and humanity
projects. Local clubs and dis-
tricts added even more in
time, effort and money. An
example of the way in which
Rotarians express their con-
cerns as a family was felt here
following the devastating
hurricanes of last September.
An outpouring of more
than $350,000 for hurricane
relief came from the 54
Southwest Florida clubs in
District 6960, and from every
comer of the Rotary world.
This fund is being used
directly to assist victims pri-
marily in the Punta Gorda,
Port Charlotte and Arcadia


areas. '
What is next for Rotary?
As stated in '"A Century of
Service," the history book of
Rotary, "The ideal of service is
needed as much in 2005 as on
that cold February night a
century ago when Rotary
began. As Rotarians celebrate
their gift to the world with the
eradication of polio through
the PolioPlus program, they
know they dare not rest their
heads on the pillows of self-
satisfaction. Peace among
warring nations, drugs, illiter-
acy, disease, poverty, hunger,
homelessness, the environ-
ment all present Rotarians
with opportunities for service
in the years ahead."
As important today as it
has been over the years, is the
motto of Rotarians every-
where: "Service Above Self."

ESTUARY from page 6B
Other research
Also on Tuesday, scientist
James Gelsleichter of Mote
Marine Laboratory discussed
how industrial chemicals and
even undigested birth control
pills are getting discharged in
waste water. The chemicals
may be interrupting the re-
productive cycles of fish and
other species.
Mote's data to date re-
vealed only a few "hot spots,"
where water from the Myakka
and Caloosahatchee rivers
had excessive levels of estro-
gen. But Gelsleichter said
more study is needed to
determine if the spikes are
just a natural variation.
Not counting those hot
spots, "We look pretty good
compared to Korea or Ne-
braska," Gelsleichter said. "I
don't think that these (hot
spots) indicate very dire situa-
tions."
Another scientist, Eliza-
beth Staugler, reported on her
study of the proliferation of
septic tanks.
Despite the fact that up to
174,000 people in the Myakka
and Peace river watersheds
now rely on the back-yard
systems to dispose of sewage,
the systems account for only a
small percentage of the deg-
radation of area waters, she
said.
She calculated that the
septic systems contribute
600,000 pounds of nitrogen
and 49,000 pounds of phos-
phorus key nutrients that
fuel algal blooms.
But, because only a few
enclaves in the 2,400-square
mile basin are densely urban-
ized, the loadings have little
effect, she said.

Tips to take off weight and keep it off


9B
WEDNESDAY
FEB. 23,2005


Ego brought back out of the clouds


DIANNE COGBURN,
R.D., L.D., M.P.H.
GUEST COLUMNIST

Despite what ads and
books promise, there is no
magic way to lose weight.
Common sense, a good diet
and regular exercise are the
keys to fitness. Your diet and
exercise are in your hands;
here's some help with the
common sense.
1. Stop dieting The dic-
tionary defines the word
"diet" as what a person usu-
ally eats and drinks. Just as
we have to make daily deci-
sions about how to spend our
time and money, we also
have to make daily decisions
about how we are going to
feed ourselves. Our dietary
choices can make weight
control difficult or easy and
have an enormous impact on
our health and well-being.

QUICK TAKE
It is a proven fact that we
all eat more than we think. In
today's society the supersize
meal has made the supersize
person. Do not be fooled
by purchasing a bigger bag
and rationalizing you will
eat it later.


2. Eat regular, healthful
and preplanned meals -
Have a plan and feel in con-
trol of your food choices.
Change shouldd" to choices.
Choose to eat a healthy
breakfast and it will help you
pass up the doughnuts at the
office. Pack your lunch so
you will avoid a fast-food
alternative that is loaded with
fat and calories. Eliminate
the word "willpower" from
your vocabulary and think
instead of the personal power
that you have to do anything
that you decide to do.
3. Get active Studies
have shown that most people
who lose weight and keep it
off exercise more than the
average American. Exercise is
the least expensive medica-
tion you will ever take. No
matter what your weight or
your weight goal, exercise is
a part of the care of the
human body. Just 30 minutes
a day of moderate activity at
least five days a week will
give you more energy to live
life to the full. And for most of
us, especially after the big 4-0,
we need to add resistance
training to our exercise rou-
tine two-three times per
week.
4. Monitor yourself Of
all the techniques available
to help people change their
behaviors, self-monitoring
stands out above the rest. The
simple act of recording what


you eat increases your aware-
ness of food choices, portion
sizes and eating behaviors.
For weight control to be suc-
cessftul, you must make it a
very conscious part of your
life. Keeping a food diary
gives you a powerful focusing
device to make you account-
able for every morsel you eat.
5. Do what you want to
make it work: Plan indul-
gences and rewards Never,
always and everyday goals
are recipes for disaster. If you
have snacked at night your
entire life, what are the odds
that you will never snack
again? Do not make that
mistake and constantly live
one mistake away from fail-
ure. Focus on gradual im-
provement. Maybe your first
goal should be to only snack
at night every other day and
make it a planned snack for
a specific calorie level. Ask
yourself what is really im-
portant to you so you will
stick to your plan and not feel
deprived. If the icing on the
cupcake 'is really what you
want, then eat it and throw
the rest away. If you like to
have something sweet at
night, save 200 calories a day
for "treats" and take a multi-
vitamin and don't worry
about having a perfect diet.
6. Monitor your portions
on a weekly basis It is a
proven fact that we all eat
more than we think. In to-
day's society the supersize
meal has made the supersize
person. Do not be fooled by
purchasing a bigger bag and
rationalizing you will eat it
later. Studies have shown
that larger portions make us
eat more; we just think that
we are eating our usual por-
tion. Avoid supersize meal
deals even if you have to
pay more, it will save you
calories and maybe help you
avoid a heart attack. Using
smaller-size dishware, avoid-
ing eating out at buffet-style
restaurants; and deciding be-
fore you purchase a food
whether you can stick to eat-
ing a reasonable portion, are
all strategies for monitoring
your portions.
7. Ask yourself if you live
to eat or eat to live Food
needs to be enjoyed but -
especially when you are try-
ing to lose weight you need
to eat a fairly repetitious and
somewhat unexciting diet.
Food is fuel first and should
be enjoyed, but variety can
get the taste buds going and
your portions may increase.
You should have a few regular
breakfast inenus, lunch and
dinners and stick to them as
long as you are losing weight.
If you get too bored and start
snacking, it's time to change
your routine.


8. Use prepared foods
when your schedule gets
stressful Stock your cup-
boards with some prepared
foods you can fix in minutes.
Slim-Fast drinks and or other
liquid meals or bars can be
thrown in your lunch box
when you do not have time to
make a lunch. Keep calorie-
controlled frozen entrees for
those evenings where an
elaborate dinner is not going
to happen. You can add a
"bagged salad" and or a fruit
and you have a nice meal less
than 500 calories.
9. Monitor your weight
weekly Although the scale
is only one measure of suc-
cess, it is an important mon-
itoring tool. Weigh at the.
same time, with the same
clothing and with the same
routine. If you are not meet-
ing your goals and really feel
that you are on track, seek
professional guidance before
. you get discouraged.
10. Consider breaking
your weight-loss goal into 10-
20 pound increments Most
people are successful with
short-term weight loss. Your
first weight loss goal should
be about 10-15 percent of
your current body weight.
Once you attain this goal,
work on maintaining this
weight for one to three
months and then start losing
again.

BACK OF THE PACK

BYJJ.ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

The past couple of weeks
I've been feeling proud of
myself following the Tampa
marathon. Cruised past my
26.2-mile goal time by 7 min-
utes, and crushed Oprah's
personal best marathon time.
And then I went to the
Scrub Jay 5K at Oscar Scherer
Park last Saturday and lis-
tened to winning times for
runners 65 years old and
older.
Let's just say most of those
guys could be fighting for
varsity spots on a high school
cross country team.
It's amazing how an inflat-
ed ego can quickly turn into
disappointment. Oscar Sch-
erer Park was a difficult,
sandy 3.1-mile race course,
so my slow time was ignored
by how I took 72nd place
out of 410 runners.

"For years I smiled with my mouth closed, but now I can't wait to
smile. The Smile Centre has changed the way I feel about myself"
Virginia Keddy
(Business Owner)


Three post-race chili dogs
and a large coffee later was
when I heard how fast people
35 years older than me are. I
even got hammered by a
Sarasota County commis-
sioner's time who bemoaned
the fact he can only log 25
training miles a week be-
cause of his long work hours.
Pick a measuring stick
It was only hours later
when indigestion set in from
eating too many chili dogs
that I was able to say Satur-
day morning's run was a suc-
cess.
Personal failure was being
defined by other people's
ability, and that's not what
any fitness program is about
- be it lifting weights, bicy-
cling, aerobics or whatever.
All too often I forget it
was just a year ago I couldn't
jog a half mile without tak-
ing a break. Only 31 years
old and I was making "old
man sounds," as my father
calls them, every morning
while getting out of bed car-
rying around an extra 35
pounds.
Fitness is about accom-
plishing something you did-
n't know your body could do
and feeling good .about
yourself. There's also that
entire improved health
thing.
Goals can be set to finally
catch those five senior citi-
zens who are three or more


minutes faster than me. But
that doesn't define success or
failure.
Every time I lace up my
running shoes for a 6 a.m.
run before work, I've already
won.
Morning runs...
On the topic of 6 a.m. runs
before work, any Venice-area
runners interested in starting
an informal running group
on the island? Manasota
Track Club, as I've written,
has plenty of great training
runs for all abilities, but
most of them are in North
County.
Getting there is the trou-
ble for me. Not enough time
before work, and so often
work runs late for those great
Tuesday runs at Siesta Key
Beach.
A couple people have e-
mailed me about setting up
some Venice island runs on
Wednesday and Friday
mornings. Who doesn't love
a leisurely 5-6 miles before
work? Drop me an e-mail if
you're interested.
Until then, I'll see you
around at the Back of the
Pack

ly running column appearing
every Wednesday. Send run-
ning-related e-mails to News

Q 1 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
,A105 V97 o 63 *AKQJ74
Your right-hand opponent opens one
no trump. What action do you take?
A These days, this is the hand
with which you double one no
trump. You expect to defeat that
contract and, depending on how the
bidding develops, you probably will
have a chance to bid your suit later
should you so desire.
Q 2.- Both vulnerable, you hold:
SAJ5 V K J5 AJ5 *4Q1064
Your right-hand opponent opens one
no trump. What action do you take?
A This is a corollary to the previ-
ous problem. In days gone by, you
doubled to show a one no trump
opening bid. However, you have no
good lead. Any suit you attack might
help declarer rather than hurt. All too
often, declarer would wrap up the
contract, sometimes with an over-
trick or two. Pass.
Q 3 East-West vulnerable, As
South you hold:
4K v 8 7 5 3 o KJ10 9 8 5 2 4 5
The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
14 34.* ?
* weak
What action do you take?
A Those who play negative dou-
bles love to trot out their favorite
weapon. However, even should part-
ner bid hearts in response, that might
not be the best spot. And if partner
rebids spades, as is more likely, what
do you intend doing then? We prefer
a simple three-diamond overcall. The
real problem could come on the next
round, depending on partner's
response.
Q 4 As South, vulnerable, you hold:


*J104 vQ108 o764 4AQ105
The bidding has proceeded:
EAST SOUTH WEST NORTH
Pass Pass 10. Dbl
1I ?
What action do you take?
A With this balanced hand, we
would like to bid one no trump -
the lack of a spade stopper does not
bother us (partner surely holds one),
but no diamond stopper does. All
you can do is bid two clubs. The
hand is a might weak for a jump to
three clubs. Since you are bidding
freely in an auction where partner
has shown the major suits, you must
have fair values.
Q 5 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:
42 vKQ105 oKQ43 .3J1072
The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
Pass 14 Pass 24

What do you bid now?
A As a passed hand, you have the
perfect shape and strength for a double
of 24 on this auction. We cannot think
of a reason for not taking that action.
Q 6 Not vulnerable, you hold:
*K7 v 965 oA105 4.K9863
Partner opens the bidding with one
heart. What do you respond?
A You have the values for a limit
raise, but lack a fourth trump. Prepare
to make a delayed limit raise by
whatever means you have at your dis-
posal, be it a forcing no trump with a
bid of three hearts next to show three-
card support, or a bid of two clubs, to
be followed by bidding hearts as
cheaply as possible at your next turn.r

Venice Art

Center presents

spring fashions

According to fashion coor-
dinators Linda Thompson
and Char Melby from Mark
Fore and Strike, madras plaids
are making a comeback. The
two women helped coordi-
nate the fashion show spon-
sored by the Venice Art Cen-
ter at Plantation Golf &
Country Club.
Models Don Hay, John and
Barbara Freeman, Lynn Mos-
ley, Tonya Sauppe, Eleanore
Darington, Betty Campbell
and Judy Conn presented a
spring palette of bright colors
with a lot of pink, blue and
some black.
The madras plaid long
dress Barbara Freeman wore
brought a lot of applause from
the audience as did Don Hay's
jacket. Both seemed perfect
for any Florida occasion.
Door prizes were donated
by Pat San Soucie, Pat Kelly
and Walter Youvaish, Katrina
Meyer, Ray Ellis, Venice Day
Spa and Tonya Sauppe.
Bonnie Kaiser made adorable
centerpieces that included
chocolate hearts.
The Plantation Golf &
Country Club served a deli-
cious lunch with a luscious
chocolate dessert. Rosemary
Fisher played popular music
to welcome everyone to the
event and then provided per-
fect background music for
models as they walked the
runway.
Everyone's heart broke
when Rosemary announced
she and her husband were
moving back to Missouri to
be near their daughters. This
terrific lady will be missed.
Members of the Venice Art
Center always present well
organized events. They make
everyone feel welcome and
make each event fun.
Proceeds from the fashion
show benefit various pro-
grams at the Venice Art Center.
Three cheers to everyone
associated with the show.
Be sure to stop in at the
Venice Art Center on Nokomis
Avenue. They offer classes, a
gift show and a lovely restau-
rant for lunch.

Nita Collin3 and Priscilla
Shore wowed the audience at
the Jewish Community Center
with their performance and
informative talk about classi-
cal music. Nita on the piano
and violinist Priscilla enter-
tained the audience who
gave them a nice ovation and
asked the women to come
back again.

Bill Millner directed the
Venice Concert Band to an-
other more than standing-
room-only audience at the
First Baptist Church of Ven-
ice. Soloist Sarah Rideout-
Slight and the band enter-
maLied the audience with their
mar 'i.s and ..roadway show
tunes and had everyone
cheering and applauding and
tapping their toes.
The next concert is on Feb.
28, and at that time tickets for
next year go on sale.

The special person of this
week is Bonnie Kaiser. This
fantastic lady should be
named by someone as volun-
teer of the century. She works
with several organizations and
always steps up. She makes
centerpieces, sings, dances,
paints and serves as an officer.
On top of all this, Bonnie
enjoys her family and is a nice
friend. Bonnie Kaiser is one of
the women who helps make
Venice special.


Pam Lombardo and Lillian
Cockribl look at all the raffle
prizes available at the fashion
show. They especially liked
the diamond pendant.

Tonya Sauppe and Bonnie Kaiser help sell raffle tickets at the .
Venice Art Center Style Show. Tonya made several donations Rosemary Fisher and Julia Hyman chat before the fashion
to the show and Bonnie made all the centerpieces. show at the Plantations Golf & Country Club. The women have
been friends for a long time.


Betty and daughter-in-law Debbie Campbell enjoy a visit
before the fashion show. Betty was one of the models in the
show.


Barbara and John Freeman are a perfect mother-son team at
the fashion show. Barbara's long madras plaid dress was the
hit of the show.


Sharron St. Louis is a
snowbird from Windsor,
Canada who read about the
Venice Art Center's fashion
show in the Venice Gondolier
Sun and decided it would be
a great event to attend.


Models for the Venice Art Center's fashion show at the
Plantation Golf & Country Club are from left; Don Hay, Betty
Campbell, Barbara Freeman, Lynne Mosley, John Freeman,
Tonya Sauppe, Judy Conn and Eleanore Darington.


Kathy and Howard Eichhorst enjoy their front row seats at the
First Baptist Church of Venice. They are all smiles as they listen
to the Venice Concert Band under the direction of Bill Millner.


Don Hay looks handsome and
ready for spring modeling a
madras plaid jacket during
the fashion show.


Lynn Mosley looks cute mod-
eling a spring outfit from
Mark Fore and Strike.


Tom and Tassi Hodge are gracious hosts and always extend a
warm welcome to the audience on hand for concerts at the
First Baptist Church of Venice. Tom is pastor at the church and
encourages its members to be actively involved in the commu-
nity. He extends a welcome to anyone in the audience who
doesn't have a church to visit the First Baptist Church of Venice
on Miami Ave.


Priscilla Shore and Nita Collins performed at the Friends of the
Venice Symphony breakfast at the Jewish Community Center.
Both women wowed the audience with their music. Priscilla
Shore is an accomplished pianist and Nita an outstanding
violinist.
