Road money misplaced


As much as $2.5 million in impact fees may have
been shifted out of city projects by Sarasota
County because of "clerical errors."

BY JJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

Despite all of the impact
fees developers pay, there
never seems to be enough
money to pay for county road
improvements within Venice
city limits.
Turns out there may be a
reason for that. City Manager
Marty Black has identified a
potential $2.5 million pos-
sibly more in/impact fees
that the coLunt was planning
on spending elsewhere.
"I've always had a question
about it," Black said.
"Intuitively, the numbers
never seemed to add up
based on how much revenue
was coming in.... There may
be others beyond these."
Black already has his eyes
on where the money will go
- improving the intersection
at Knights Trail and Laurel
roads, access road to the


county landfill and home to
an industrial park that
includes PGT Industries,
South County's largest indus-
trial employer.
Sarasota County officials
are still reviewing the infor-
mation, and the total amount
could change. Mistakes in
allocating where the road
improvement money goes
have been blamed on clerical
errors caused by financial
records not keeping up with
annexations.
"It's a legitimate issue. It is
as simple as coding and mov-
ing the funding around," said
Deputy County
Administrator Dave Bullock,
adding that the county will
correct any mistakes it may
have made.
For a decade...
Current questions have to
do with about $650,000 in
impact fees that Venice offi-

cials claim were never spent
within city limits. The oldest
claim so far involves PGT
Industries off Laurel Road,
which contributed $459,034
for road improvements 'in
1996.
County officials have to
review records to determine if
PGT was officially within city,
limits when the fee was
assessed in 1994. After that,
the county has to retrace
where those dollars went and
if they wound up funding city
projects.
In other words, Venice may
have received $650,000 worth
of road improvements in the
past decade, but the funds
weren't labeled as road
impact fee money, according


to James Harriott, general
manager' of mobility for
Sarasota County.
"I haven't been fully con-
vipced of the figure $650,000,
yet," Harriott said. "But there
is a number there. It's some-
where between $0 and
$650,000."
At least another $2 million
was identified by city staff late
last year. That money Was
going toward intersection
improvements at Jacaranda
Boulevard and East Venice
Avenue, even though it was
outside of city limits.
City council approval is
needed for impact fees to be
spent outside of its bound-

Senate President Tom Lee
and House Speaker Alan
Bense joined the governor
last week in announcing a
joint resolution to amend the
class-size amendment passed
by voters in 2002. That
amendment requires districts

The job of Doug Manson,
the attorney for the Peace
RiveriManasota Regional
Water Supply Authority, may
get easier in the future, but it
also will mean lower fees.
By consensus, the four
county commissioners who
make up the authority's

Friday to move to a common
water rate structure while
constructing the next expan-
sion of the facility in one
phase instead of the planned
two.

2A VENICE GONDOLIER SUN SUNDAY, FEB. 27,2005


Several attendees brought binoculars for their guided nature walks after the grand opening of
the Manasota Scrub Preserve on Thursday afternoon.




New branch office



for scrub jays opens


The Manasota Scrub Preserve, 145 acres of
marsh, wetlands and flat woods, is home to a
variety of Florida wildlife soon to include the


scrub jay, officials hope.
BYGAVIN OFF
STAFF WRITER

Trail walkers could hear
the speeding cars on State
Road 776, but only pines and
palmettos could be seen.
More than 100 residents
and Sarasota County officials
turned out Thursday after-
noonforthe grandopening of
the Manasota Scrub Preserve,


bordered by Manasota Beach
Road and State Road 776.
The 145 acres of marsh,
wetlands and flat woods was
Sarasota County's first pur-
chase using the .25-mill tax
approved in 1999 to buy envi-
ronmentally sensitive lands.
So far, the county has pre-
served some 16,000 acres of
sensitive land, much of it in
the South County area.


The county bought 110
acres from the preserve in
2000 and 35 acres in 2002. It
added walking trails, benches
and a picnic area.
Environmentalists are
hoping the land will become
home to the endangered
scrub jay, which could
migrate from neighboring
Lemon Bay Preserve.
"We built it for them, and
nowwe're waiting for them to
come," said county environ-
mental specialist Robert
Kluson.
The park, open during
sunlight hours, is already
home to: gopher tortoises,


Roughly 145 acres of marsh, wetlands and flatwoods, home to snakes, gopher tortoises and
owls, make up the preserve. The preserve is open daily at 8 a.m. It is situated on Bridge Street,
just off Manasota Beach Road near State Road 776 in Englewood. There is a picnic area and ;
benches. No dogs are permitted.


bobcats, snakes and great
horned owls. .
James Tilton lives next to
the preserve.
"It's nice to see Sarasota
County have enough fore-
sight to set a piece of proper-
ty like this aside," said Tilton,
who moved to the area 10
years ago. "One of the reasons


we came here was because
there was alot of green left in
the area."
County officials marked
the preserve's opening by
clipping a "ceremonial vine"
crossing a nature trail.
"Is this a great place or
what?" asked Paul Mercier,
chairman of the board of


commissioners. "If we didn't
have our environment, we
wouldn't be living here."
Added snowbird Bruce
Hill, "We have a connection
with nature, and I think our
children and grandchildren
need open space like this."

and risking contamination.
Previously, only customers
accepting reclaimed water or
with alternative water sources,
like a well, were required to
have backflow devices.
The policy affects at least
12,000 customers in Venice,
and failure to comply.is sub-
ject to fines by the Municipal
Code Enforcement Board.
. Black characterizes this
meeting as being an open
house for residents to show up
and say what's on their minds

As for the narrow pedesutri-
an lanes on the bridge, Black
believes the county has done
its best with the money avail-
able. Sarasota County main-
tains theVenice Avenue Bridge
and hopes to avoid replacing it
for another 20 years.
Painted crosswalks on
Venice Avenue will lead to the
bridge sidewalks and wheel-'
chair ramps, with the only'
pedestrian protection from
cars being yield signs.-
"They've come up with the
best design they could come
up with, given the physical
features that were already
there," Black said.

Action by county, goodwill motions by Venice


Council members agreed on all the votes, but
official action must wait for next council meeting.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR


There was a full slate of
agenda items needing
approved when county com-
missioners and city council
members met Wednesday.
Only problem was Venice
City Council couldn't take
action on any of them.
Venice's city charter prevents
any official council action
from being voted on outside
of city limits, according to the


opinion of City Attorney Bob
Anderson.
Since the session was at
Twin Lakes Park in Sarasota,
all of the council votes were
resolutions of support.
Official action will be taken at
the next regularly scheduled
council meeting in Venice.
"It's just to prevent any
potential legal challenges,"
City Manager Marty Black
told county commissioners
as the meeting began.
Joint planning agreements


and transportation weren't
the only topics on the agenda.
Here are the highlights from
the rest of Wednesday's meet-
ing.
Manatees and scrub jays
Amy Meese with Sarasota
County offered presentations
on a pair of wildlife, protec-
tion plans county officials
hope Venice will participate
in.
The habitat conservation
plan for the Florida scrub jay
would create a system for
developers to deal with habi-
tat on prime real estate. This


bird is on the endangered
Species list, and the 22 per-
cent decline in its Sarasota
County population since
2000 indicates it will eventu-
ally be extinct here, Meese
said.
A system for building
around identified habitat,
minimizing the impact or
mitigation by paying into a
_ land acquisition fund would
be created. Development
could still occur on identified
habitats under this plan.
Venice also was asked to
adopt a protection plan for
the West Indian Manatee,


drafted and approved by
Sarasota County. City of
Sarasota already.has adopted
this policy.
This plan enforces speed
zones, shoreline and habitat
protection measures, educa-
tion and a boat facility siting
plan.
Council members did not
take a motion of support for
either of these plans.
Emergency services
Venice and Sarasota
County have been hammer-
ing out interlocal agreements
on fire and ambulance ser-


vices for the Venice area.
Commissioners approved the
measure, and council voted
in support. 3
The lease deals with thy
city continuing to rent the
vacated county station, 440 E
Venice Ave., as well as housj
ing a county ambulance 4
stations No. 1 and 2. All fees
remain the same, and the
term is for' 10 years with an
option for another 10. 1

"WATER frompage 1A
Winners and losers
Under the common rate,
structure, each of the authori-
ty's water customers -
Sarasota, DeSoto and
Charlotte counties and North
Port would pay the same
rate to buy water from the
authority, an estimated 77
cents for every 1,000 gallons
of water they commit to buy.
That potential charge could
rise because it does not
include the authority's oper-
ating or maintenance costs or
debt service.
For some, the common or
blended rate structure,
means an increase; for others,
its a decrease.
Increases would come to
Charlotte, which pays 51
cents, and North Port, which
pays, 42 cents. DeSoto gets a
break, falling from its current
95 cents, while Sarasota gets
the biggest benefit, decreas-
ing from the $1.01 it currently
pays.
"It's something we've been
trying to go to for the past two
or three years," said Pat
Lehman, executive director of
the water authority. "It just
means everyone would pay
the same rate."
'Tm not going to0.say.yyes.
and I'm not going to say no,"
said Charlotte County)
Administrator Bruce Loucks,
after commissioner Adam
Cummings said he was "90
percent there."
"We've got to see if there's
any deal-breakers," Loucks
added, "but it looks like a
good deal. We're further along
than we've ever been."
Loticks said he anticipated
having an independent finan-
cial anal -ysis completed for his
board by the end of next
wqek.
Bonding
Adopting a common rate
structure also makes
Manson's work easier, since
he will only need to draft one
contract between the author-
ity and its. customers rather
than four separate contracts.
Manson and authority staff
hope to get the contract draft-
ed and approved by the board
and the four separate com-
missions rapidly, so the
authority can begin the-
process to issue bonds to
fund the expansion.
A favorable bond market
currently would mean a sav-
ing to the authority of about'
$600,000 versus a cost of,
$400,000 just a few months
ago, said Todd Holder, a rep-
resentative, of Citigroup,
which handles the authority's
bonding.
In addition to bonding the
expansion, Lehman said the
authority would also 'include
its debt from prior expan-
sions, much like refinancing a
home, which will also create a
common debt and allow the
authority to move to the com-
mon rate structure.
Issuing new bonds would
also wipe out $26 million of
indebtedness for Charlotte
created in the early 1990s
from buying out General
Development. In addition,
the authority would also give
Charlotte another $6 million
to offset the increase in rates.
New day
The authority's four board
members will consider for
approval at their board meet-
ing next Wednesday a con-
sensus statement that out-
lines the financial strategies
and construction plan.


If it approves the plans
reached Friday, it may avert a
potential lawsuit against the
authority by North Port. The
city wants an additional 5
million gallons per day from
the expansion to meet the
future water needs caused by
the explosive growth in the
city over the last five years.
"It's advantageous for
everyone," said city Utilities
Director Cindi Mick, who has
said on previous occasions
that the city did not want to
hold up the expansion. "We're
in total support of doing it in
one phase."
Mick agreed that changing
the plans would get the city
closer to what it needs.
The water authority, creat-
ed in the early 1990s by
Charlotte, Sarasota, DeSoto
and Manatee counties after
the collapse of General
Development Utilities, draws
water from the Peace River,
treats it, then sells it to the
three counties and North
Port. The authority's Peace
River facility has a current
capacity of 18 million gallons
of water per day, but its per-
mitted capacity is 32.7 mngd.
SThe planned $110 million
,expansion of the facility,.
which is scheduled to begin
later this year, would bring
the plant to its permitted
capacity. Early plans had
called for the authority to do
the expansion in two phases,
which would bring final com-
pletion in 2013.
By doing the expansion in'
one phase, construction
would be completed five
years earlier, in 2008.
"This represents a lot of
hard work by a lot of people,"
said commissioner Pat Glass
of Manatee County and the
authority's chairwoman.
'This means we really are
entering a new day."

City manager surprised by council's stance;

NEWS EDITOR


City Manager Marty Black
was already developing a plan
to move Venice's oldest home
and how to make it a public
showcase.
And then council mem-
bers .told Black they don't
want the city's only remaining
link to Venice's pioneer days
because they're afraid of the
price tag for maintenance.

"I was surprised at how
they prioritized their direc-

understand it, but I was sur-

The lot at 811 Laguna
Drive is more valuable than
the 1896 historic home, so the
new owner offered to donate
it to the city if officials would

Busted: Cracking down on skipping school


The school district is
considering tracking
absenteeism by period
as well as by day.
BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRffER

The days when a student
could skip out of algebra class
or study hall and hope it
would go unnoticed could be
over. The school board plans
to put out for public com-
ment a new policy designed
to track student absences
more closely.
A draft of the new policy
continues to require that stu-
dent absences be tracked on a
daily basis, and parents con-
tacted as required by law.
The proposed policy goes
a step further by requiring
reporting of absences by peri-
od at the middle- and high-
school levels.
The county is working on
an automated notification
system that apprises parents
of daily absences. It's in place
in some schools, but not in


Board meeting to focus on North Port schools


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Once again. North Port school con-
struction issues are expected to make
up the lion's share of new business at the
Sarasota County School Board meeting
on Tuesday.
The board is expected to approve an
updated facilities plan for the fourth
North Port elementary school, officially
called "School H." The 1999 facilities list
for School H, being built at North
Salford Boulevard and Sardinia Avenue
near 1-75, had to be modified to incor-
. porate class-size reduction require-
ments passed in 2002, along with other
changes.
"To serve the same 970 kIds, under
the class-size reduction amendment,
we are increasing square footage to
accommodate between 12-14 addition-
al classrooms,",said Bob Earley. associ-


others.
Some students try to side-
step the system by attending
the first class, then cutting
classes the rest of the day.


ate superintendent and and chief finan-
cial officer.
The board also plans to approve a
state-required spot survey to substand-
ate the need for School H in its pro-
posed location.
Also up for approval is the architect's
contract for the fourth elementary,.
scheduled to open for the 2006-07
school year. The board is expected to
authorize the purchase of architectural
services from BRPH, the architectural
firm under contract with the board to
build the elementary school on Palmer
Boulevard in Sarasota.
The contract is for 4.3 percent of con-
structions costs, estimated at $16.8 mil-
lion. The board is budgeting the
$722,400 fee, and building in an addi-
tional cushion of $171,570 for addition-
al services which may or may not be
required. The total project budget is
roughly $21.4 million.


Caught on the Web -
At this time the district
does not intent to notify par-
ents of students about
absences by period.


"Our vision is that eventual-
ly parents will have all this
information accessible on the
Web so that they can access
their child's attendance


Number 5
Another matter up for approval is an
addendum to a resolution passed at the
last board meeting authorizing the
acquisition of lands to build a fifth ele-
mentary school in North Port, expected
to open for the 2008-09 school year at
Atwater and Huntsille roads.
North Port's 12-15 percent annual
growth, Earley said, requires school offi-
cial to plan land buys and construction
schedules ahead of the growth curve.
In all, four elementary schools are
already under construction in Sarasota
County. Three are rebuilds Wildkinson
and Phillippi Shores in Sarasota. and
Venice Elementary: the fourth is the
new elementary in North Port.
Cranberry Elementary opened this year
on Shalimar Terrace in North Port.
The Sarasota County school board
meeting begins at 3 p.m. Tuesday,
Nlarch 1, at The Landings.


record," said Lori White, asso-
ciate superintendent for
instructional support services.
"I felt we could give a more
accurate picture of student


attendance through this new
policy. It will provide not just
one snapshot per day, but
throughout the day."
The program also will be
used to identify trends and
find out if students are skip-
ping at random or only duck-
ing out of certain classes.
"Maybe we can figure out a
way to intervene and encour-
age that student to attend the
full day," White said. "It's not
.always punitive."
The technology to track
student attendance by period
is already being piloted at
Venice High School. Teachers
can access the information
via their computer.
"We're preparing to get
that information on the Web
so that parents can also have
access," White said. "Certainly
in next few years that infor-
mation should be available to
all parents in the district if
they choose to monitor their
child's attendance."
The draft policy is expect-
ed to be put out for public
comment by the school
board at its March 1 meeting.

Utilities Manager Chris
Sharek updated county com-
missioners on the status of
Venice's utilities department,
specifically the wastewater
treatment plant. Venice and
Sarasota County have shared
agreements on treatment of


-sewage and handling of the
reclaimed water.
City and county staff also
are working on interconnec-
tions. The two already can
exchange handling of sewage
and reclaimed water. Now
they're working on intercon-
nection of drinking water, all
as ways to deal with emer-
gency situations.
The interlocal agreement
on utilities has been amended
so many times, both City
Manager Marty Black and
Deputy County Administrator
David Bullock agreed the plan


needs to be revised not to
add items, but to make it a
readable document that's
enforceable and up to date.


"We do have a good solid
relationship and agreements
already," Black said. "The hope
is to streamline this."

aries, so the money was
switched back last December
after the county was notified.
Delays on completion of
intersection improvements
are not related to the transfer
of $2 million, according to
Harriott.
All that really happened
was switching of funding
labels. Harriott compared it
to someone who has a check-
ing account for house pay-
ments and another account
for vacation trips. Your wife
gives you $20 for the house
payment account, and your
father chips in $20 for the
vacation account.
By mistake you flip-
flopped those $20 bills, but
each account still got $20.
"It was really as simple as a
swap of a couple of funds and
a couple of accounts, so we
moved that money," Harriott
said. "It was a wash in the
end. The city wasn't really los-
ing anything."
The only one?
So far, county officials are
saying Venice appears to be
the only road impact fee dis-
trict disputing how much
money it should be receiving.
There are seven "districts"

traffic signal at the intersec-
tion will cost $4.5 million.
And even if the county
comes up with the remaining
$2 million, it will take at least
a year of design and planning
work before dirt starts to
move.
"It would take more than
six months to nine months to
design the project, at the very
least," Harriott said. "It could
be upwards of a year before
work could begin."
PGT worries
Both county and city offi-
cials have heard rumblings
out of PGT Industries about
the congested intersection's
lack of lights and turn lanes.
There are rumors the manu-
fadturer would like to expand,
but cannot when a two-lane
road is all it has for access.
Sarasota County
Commission Chair Paul
Mercier said Wednesday he
has heard these complaints,
and all one has to do is drive

cars to know PGT's impor-
tance to the local work force.
"What are we doing eco-
nomically to make, them

and require future increases
to keep pay above the nation-
al average.
"We know the key to rising
student achievement is dedi-
cated, high-quality teachers
focusing on the needs of the
student," said Bush in a press
release. "This resolution
allows us to fulfill our com-
mitment to Florida's voters
and maintain a high quality
education for our students, by
balancing the importance of
class size and teacher pay.
"Teachers make a differ-
ence, and we would serve our
students better by focusing
on attracting and retaining
high-quality teachers with
higher teacher pay."
Skeptical
While details of the plan
have yet to be worked out in
the legislature, some remain
doubtful of the final out-
come.
Pat Gardner, president of
Sarasota Classified/Teachers
Association, is skeptical of
Bush's promise for higher
teacher pay and downright
stupefied at the proposal to
increase vouchers.
"I don't believe in a million
years he will fund it. They
don't fund it now. That's their
history," Gardner said.
"The truth is I think resi-
dents would vote to keep
class size limits right where
they are. It's important to
keep class sizes low so stu-
dents can learn."
However, Gov. Bush has
support from others at the
state level to change how


class sizes are computed,
including Sen,'rv President
Tom Lee.

the best interest for attaining
Florida's long-term public
education goals," Lee said
through a press release.
"Facilities are an important
element of the education
equation but a classroom
building is just bricks and
mortar without a high quali-
ty teacher inside."
The proposal to expand
the state's voucher program
for students who fail the
FCAT reading three years in a
row is even less palatable to
Gardner. "Reading Compact"
scholarships would provide
funds to failing students to
attend a public or participat-
ing private school of choice.
"I can't believe the gover-
nor would give vouchers to
private schools where they
don't require FCAT testing,"
Gardner said. "I don't under-
stand why is he not request-
ing more monitoring of these
schools.
"Some of our kids fall a
year or two behind when
they leave. And we're expect-
ed to bring these same kids
back up to speed when they
show up again in our public
schools."
Talk out of the state con-
tinued to focus on how class
sizes are computer, and how
changing the current system
will help fix everything else.

Frustrated Contractor is "Giving Away"

$1,400 Air Handler for $341 with

Off-Season Central Air...

(This is great financial news if your air conditioner is over 8 years old)


Yes, it's absolutely true. You can actually
replace your old '(and probably very
inefficient) air conditioner as a package for
at least $1,100 less than you would have to
pay at any other time. Let me explain.
Every year, the months of January,
February, and March can "Kill" my
business. I end up losing a ton of money
during these "Killer" months and it can
take me the remaining eight months to
make up for them, and I'm looking for the
same thing to happen this year.
My Problem Is Your
Opportunity
I've decided to give up trying to make a
profit during the "Killer" months. If I can
,'only minimize my losses during January,
February, March and April, I will come
out ahead of the other eight months.
Here's how this (admittedly daring) offer
came about. Ever year, the big
manufacturers of air conditioners have to
guess how many to build to meet the
demand. Of course, they're never exactly
right, so, they always have some inventory
they must hold over until the next summer
season. I went to one of these companies,
(they won't let me use their name) and
contracted for the purchase of 24 air
conditioners and air handlers in the four
most popular sizes used in SW Florida.
Because of the quantity and the time of
year, I was able to buy them at drastically
reduced, dirt cheap, out-of-season prices.
They are brand new 2004/2005 models.
And they are NOT the seconds or "blems"
or standard "builder" models. They are
factory-fresh, air conditioners and have a
full 10 year parts factory warranty.
Here's How You Can Get An
Air Handler For Peanuts
By putting this air handler and air
conditioner package together (then "Jaw-
Boning" the factory) and committing to a
do-or-die purchase agreement of 56
systems, I was able to buy both the air
handler and the air conditioning unit for
less than anyone should have a right to
pay! If you buy one of these normal 56
new, air conditioners (but only if one of
the four sizes I have will fit your house, of
course), I am "giving" you.the air handler
and all I ask for is the $341 in labor it


costs to have your air handler installed.
Here's How
Just call at 1-800-741-1233 anytime. I will
come out and measure your home (and
determine the availability of the proper size).
Don't.forget, I only have 56 matched systems
in four sizes. When they are gone, this
remarkable offer ends also. I will show you the
real world price on the air conditioner that fits
your home, then, I will show you the
substantial savings now. It will include all
labor and installation materials. Nothing is
left out.
The Concept Is
Simply Really
By letting you win big now, I will win at the
end of the year. I'm betting that if I make you
an offer that is "irresistible" (at least it should
be if your air conditioner is over eight years
old) and I barely made it up above the price I
paid, I will accomplish two things:
1. I will cover my rent, utilities, insurance and
taxes in the Killer months.
2. I can phy my professional staff of 40
technicians to work instead of paying them to
sit at home. If I can accomplish these two
objectives, I will minimize my losses and the
rest'of the year, I can be a winner.
No Obligation
Even after I completely explain the
installation, there is absolutely no obligation.
If you decide you don't want to take
advantage of the spectacular savings...that's
okay. I will give you a surprise gift because
you are kind enough to read this letter and
give me a chance to solve my problem. I want
you to think well of Anderson even if you don't
buy
You Can Buy
With NO Cash
You don't even have to pay me right away. I
have set up a terrific financing plan. I even
decided not to mark up the interest rate like
some companies do. Consider this. If you
decide to make monthly investments instead of
paying cash, the entire amount of your
payments might be more than offset by the
savings on your utility bills. It's like having
your cake and eating it too."


J, -lIW


Why This Offer
Can't Last
You must act before April 15th (tax day).
Here are the two reasons why:
1. I can only have 14 of each of the four
sizes. When all the air conditioners are sold
and all the air handlers are "given" away in
a particular size, that's it. There are no
more at this price.
2. If I have any of the 56 systems left on
April 15th (although I doubt I will), this
offer still ends. Here's why. The reason I am
making this virtually no-profit (for me) offer
is because of the killer months. My business
always starts to improve in April, and
because the air handlers cost me so little, I
can sell them, at 2005 prices next November
and December and still come out ahead.
Give a call now at 1-800-741-1233 and we
will set an appointment for your no-
obligation survey.

onship, as she fired a perfect
game to lead Venice to a 7-0
victory over Lake Region at
Blackstone Park.
Boyts, a junior, struck out
six batters.
She received support from

Davidson, who had two hits
apiece, and Maureen
Sandidge and Heather Laird,

VHS headed to the big dance

Venice swamps Largo to claim first regional I F i F -.,
championships in girls basketball since 1978. Irf


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Before the season even
began, Venice High girls bas-
ketball coach Joe DiGiacomo
joked about getting new
shoes for the big dance.
Three months later, his
Lady Indians guaranteed that
would happen.
In Saturday night's Class 5A
Region 3 final at the Teepee,
Venice came out guns-a-blaz-
ing, blitzing stunned Largo
with a barrage of three-point
field goals. Later on, the Lady
Indians pounded it inside.
It all added up to 57-40 vic-
tory for Venice, which
advances to the State Final 4
in Lakeland.
The Lady Indians (24-6)
will play Haines City in a state
semifinal at 7 or 8:30 p.m.
Wednesday at The Lakeland
Center. The other semifinal,
Bartram Trail will take on
Dillard.
Haines City (22-5) defeated
Lake Gibson, 65-60, in the
Region 2 final.
It is Venice High's first
region championship in girls
basketball since 1978.
"We're playing our best ball
at the right time," DiGiacomo
said. "Getting out to that big
lead early in the game was
huge. It makes it a lot easier."


Trusty assistants Cayll
Smith and Gary Halbert will
breathe a sigh of relief to that
one.
Venice blinded Largo (23-
7) over the first four minutes
of the game, running out to a
15-0 lead as four players were
red-hot.
Guard Dana Nostin started
it off with a 3-point goal.
Center Lisa Hough canned a
free throw and a field goal to
make it 6 zip.
Then point guard Natalie
Gaudreau and two' guard
Kailey Dettmann got into the
act. Gaudreau connected

make it 15-0.
On the other hand, Largo
was as 'cold as ice. The Lady
Packers only had four field
goals total in the first half.
Venice led at intermission 26-

Venice was 4-for-7 in 3-

quarter. Largo was 5-for-24 in
threes for the game all five

Cook wins state, Venice takes 2nd


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

It was supposed to be a
rebuilding year, but that did-
n't stop the Venice High
School wrestling team from
placing second in the state in
Class 2A. It marks a milestone
- the highest team place-
ment ever for the Indians.
Venice placed second to
Brandon, a Florida power-
house for decades that is
ranked No. 2 in the nation.
Brandon won the Class 2A
state tournament with 235
team points, followed by
Venice with 95, Countryside
with 84.5 points and St.
Thomas Aquinas with 60
points.
"I'm really proud of this
team," said Indian coach Dan
Kelly. "Our goal for this tour-
nament was to come in sec-
ond. When you're up against a
team like Brandon, No. 2 in
the nation, that's the best you
can do."
"When the year began, I
though this could possibly be
one of the weakest teams I


have ever coached. It turned
out to be the most success-
ful."
In all, five Indian matmen
placed in the state wrestling
tournament.
Jeremie Cook won the
state championship at 189
pounds on Saturday at The
Lakeland Center.
Senior Zach Gaudreau
placed third at 171 pounds.
Junior Brett Nelson took
fourth at 140 pounds. Senior
Matt Rossheim (119 pounds)
and sophomore Keith Kozeil
(130 pounds) each placed
fifth in state.
Cook won handily over
junior Matt Roberts of
Sabastian River in the finals
by 10-2, bringing his season's
end record to a perfect 45-0.
Cook, a junior, dominated his
field at the state tournament,
winning 16-1 against his first
opponent, pinning his sec-
ond, and winning his semi-
final 14-5 before beating
Roberts.

How s vour sPla e 1


The other day I was talking
to a friend of mine about golf
terminology, or to be more
precise, slang. He had run
across an expression every
golfer has used at least once.
Playing a two-ball match
within his group, he heard
one player refer to the other
as "padsy." Pronounced many
different ways, from padna, to
podge to just plain old pods,
it's a pat on the back to your
teammate or partner.
It got me thinking about
common slang used by
golfers to refer to anything
from three consecutive bog-
eys to the cart girl. I have
composed a few of my fav-
orites for today. This is not to
say that the list is comprehen-
sive. If you have a favorite that
you don't see here, feel free to
drop me a line. On to the
list...
The skizzle Everyone
knows this shot, a big driver
that flies about two feet above
the ground before crash land-
ing like a stone being skipped
across the water.
Goat ranch Depending
on the day, any course can be
a goat ranch. It almost always


scheduled for 5 p.m. each day.
Admission is free for all specta-
tors.
The Big Shot Volleyball
Series holds 35 events lead-
ing to the Sept. 10-11 $6,000
Big Shot Championships at
the Hilton Casino in Atlantic
City, N.J., and the $2,000
Gulfview Championships
Oct. 22-23 in Clearwater
Beach.
Top players in the Corona
Light Big Shot Series include
Miami star Gaston Macau,
who plays on the
International Pro Beach
Volleyball Tour, South
Carolina stars Adam Roberts

PREVENTING TOOTH FRACTURES
* WHEN SOMEONE IS DRINKING: Don't hit, push, or throw anything at,
someone who is drinking from a glass, container or drinking fountain.
* IN A CAR: Be prepared for sudden stops. Always wear a seat belt -
even in the back or on a short ride.
* AT THE SWIMMING POOL: Use the ladder to climb out. Don't try t6d
haul yourself up onto the side. Don't run or push alongside the pool. i,
* WHEN USING A SKATEBOARD" Don't push another skater or "hitch ai
ride". These cause more tooth fractures than anything else.
* ON A SWING: Remain seated until the swing has stopped. Don't jump
off a moving swing, or walk under it.
* WHEN WALKING. RUNNING, OR PLAYING. Watch where you're going.
Look out for trees, curbs or things to trip over.
* SPORTS EQUIPMENT: Wear a properly fitted helmet and mouth guard
when playing sports like football, ice hockey, lacrosse and boxing. For;
baseball, if you are catching, always wear a mask.

Sixth-grade tinkerer gets the Benz


Zach Nemitz, a sixth-grader at the Student Leadership Academy, built this prototype of the first
gas-powered car, a 1885 tri-car designed by Karl Benz.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


__Zach Nemitz, a sixth-grad-
er at Venice's Student Lead-
esship Academy, likes to tin-
ker with broken telephones,
radios and engines. This year
he's stretching himself.
,a For his quarterly class pro-
ject, Nemitz built his own
prototype of the first gas-
powered car. It's part of his
written report on European
i%6tory tied "Benz and His
E885 Tri-Car."'
:' It has a working engine-
'an old edger-mounted on
ti'e back but not hooked up
yet. to drive the wheels.
S"'m going to get it running
,and put a break and throttle
on it and drive it around,"
Nemnitz said. "It should be
, r


able to go around 10-14 mph.
We couldn't do the rack-and-
pinion steering because we
ran out of time."
The tri-car took Nemitz
four days to put together. He
found a three-wheeled bike
to convert, then enlisted the
help of his father to find
supplies. Nemitz was pre-
pared to do the welding
himself, but his mother
nixed that idea for safety
reasons. Friends of the fami-
ly welded a platform for the
engine to the frame for free.
When asked if he felt he
could build his own car if he
had to, his unhesitating ans-
wer was a nonchalant,
"Yup."
"I told him, next time do
something smaller for your
project," joked his' mother


Cindy Nemitz.
The report was part of the
quarterly project required of
all sixth-graders in Shawn
Martin's social studies class.
Martin is one of only 17
teachers in the county to re-
ceive national board certifi-
cation last year.
"School projects like this
allow students to pursue
their passion," Martin said.
"Some kids never get out of
a book. We could and should
be doing this in the lan-
guage arts and other classes.
"It's a great way for kids to
learn and to teach each
other. It 'helps me learn,
too."

BOCC pondering North Port meeting request


BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County
Administrator James Ley is
already in possession of North
Port's letter requesting a sec-
ond joint public meeting on
the escheated lots agreement.
The letter to Ley begins "as
you are aware, in recent weeks
citizens in North Port have
raised serious concerns as to
both the legality and propriety
of the joint meeting."
On Wednesday night, the
North Port City
Commissioners voted that
there may have been some
problems with the joint public
meeting with Sarasota County,
held in Sarasota on Dec. 7.
After hearing from more
than 10 residents, reading all
the e-mails sent to the com-
missioners and meeting with
them in their offices, the city
commissioners decided to
reconsider their stance on the
legality of the meeting.
CityAttomey Rob Robinson
wrote that per Florida Statutes,
North Port Conmmission
requests a second "public joint
meeting ... to be held in the
city of North Port, preferably in
the evening."
Robinson also said in his
letter to Ley that he hopes the
Sarasota County Commission
can appreciate the importance
of having public participation
in the governmental process.
"That's a tough one,"
Sarasota County Commission
chair Paul Mercier said.
Hostile environment
Mercier is concerned that
meetings in North Port are not
"user friendly.'
He has watched the tapes of
the North Port meeting related
to the more than 2,200 lots that
the county has taken owner-
ship of due to back taxes or
abandonment.
Mercier is concerned about
subjecting commissioners to.a


SURPRISED frompage4A
appointed by the mayor, with
at least four city residents and
at least four with an aviation
background.
Mayor Dean Calamaras
already has his seven mem-
bers picked out, and all were
approved by council. Dr.
Joseph Rand, Susan Balsinger,
Dr. John Yurosko and Paul
Hollowell will were appointed
to two-year terms, and Ralph
Conner, Roger. Jemigan and
Jim Leis will serve one-year
terms.
A new airport manager
also was hired in Fred Watts,
the former executive director
of Charlotte County Airport.
Watts is a 1975 graduate of
Charlotte High. The selection
by Black required council
approval because the salary of
$72,500 exceeds what is stipu-
lated for the Venice airport
manager position.
Other items
Here's what else happened
Tuesday.
Albee Farm Road rezone
- Council heard first reading
of ordinances to rezone 9.6
acres on the east side ofAlbee
Farm Road across from Bird
Bay Drive East from open use
to multi-family where plans
are to build a condominium
development. Waterford
developer Mike Miller
described the project as hav-
ing a lake in the center, four
three-story buildings around
the lake, and then two-story
buildings around the perime-
ter with walking trails
throughout. The land is most-
ly vacant and undeveloped.
New shopping center -
Council heard first reading to
rezone of 65.4 acres at the
intersection of Laurel and
Pinebrook roads from agri-
culture to planned commer-
cial development for a pro-


.posed "high-end" shopping
center, according to city staff..
Repealed tax exemption
- Council heard first reading
on the repeal of a tax exemp-
tion on the first 50 kilowatt
hours of electricity, meaning
electricity users will no longer
get a tax break on their first 50
KW as of Oct. 1.


hostile environment.
"If we go into another meet-
ing, it has to be one of civility
and purpose," Mercier said.
Mercier referred to past
meetings in North Port where
there was loud applause, finger
pointing, personal attacks and
a lack of control.
North Port Commission


chair Dick Lockhart has said
that he recognized the prob-
lems in the past, and has
turned over a new leaf in con-
ducting meetings.
Lockhart admitted that he
was very liberal in the past, but
that was just not working
toward promoting a more pro-
ductive government.


A deal is a deal
Whether the county will
come to North Port for a sec-
ond meeting all depends on
what the city wants. .
"Speaking personally, if it is
to renegotiate all over again, I
do not know if I can get the 3-
2 vote from the others,"
Mercier said.


He stressed that he is
speaking without knowing
what the other commission-
ers are thinking.
Mercier said that a deal is a
deal, but will come down if it
makes everyone comfortable.
"if it is to make the citizens
of North Port or the commis-
sioners understand it better,


then I will be there tomor-
row," Mercier said.
Lockhart said that if
Mercier attended one of
North Port's new commission
meetings, "he'll think he's
back home in Lowell, Mass."
Lockhart lived 20 miles
from where Mercier used to
live in the Bay State.

Safe Haven Law is saving babies' lives


No matter which side of the abortion
debate fence you're on, a state law
offering mothers an alternative to rais-
ing a child they cannot care for has been a
success.
In 2000, the state Legislature passed
Florida's Safe Haven Law in response to a
number of babies alone left to die some of
them found in trash bins or tossed into the
woods. The law allows mothers, or fathers, to
take any newborn baby to a hospital, fire sta-
tion or police station and leave it no ques-


tions asked. The law even allows for a free
medical examination for the mother, if she
requests one.'
The idea of a mother taking her new baby
to a fire station and just leaving it akin to
the motion picture industry's baby left on the
doorstep is disturbing. Yet it is a much bet-
ter alternative than the fate of many new-
borns whose mothers are either ashamed,
financially or emotionally unable to care for a
child, or just don't want a baby in their lives.
Abortion is a legal alternative that miore


and more women are deciding against. Legal
adoption is also an alternative perhaps the
most attractive given the number of adults
who want children but for one reason or
another are unable to have them.
Many young mothers, especially the
handful who try to hide their pregnancy or
those who have no support system, may not
have the knowledge or help they need to con-
tact an adoption agency or they may not
understand the help they could receive with
prenatal care or childbirth expenses.


Since 2000, there have been 23 newborns
left with police or firefighters or at local hos-
pitals. Surely it was a difficult decision for
those young mothers to leave a child never
knowing its fate. We can only imagine their
circumstances or the reasons they felt the
need to abandon their baby.
We should not judge them. What we
should do is tell them they did the right thing
and encourage other women in that situation
to consider that same alternative to abortion
or leaving a newborn to die in the elements.


'The citizen



. answer is in!


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST

There will be no more
development according to
S47 people who voted
SThursday on all the ideas pre-
sented from earlier Envision
SVenice brainstorming ses-
sions. This important night
was to define what were the
most important issues con-
cerning the environment,
open spaces and recreational
opportunities.
The meeting was held in
the gym of the Salvation
Army, a perfect venue with
Z lots of wall space to hang
large sheets of paper for post-
ing choices in five different
categories. Each sheet had
five to 20 choices participants
i needed to choose from. Many
of the questions were just ask-
ing people's preferences while
Others what the attendees
wanted or didn't want.
In the preferences area, for
instance, people were asked
which open spaces they used
most. The beach garnered 26
|f votes, or more than half,
while the Venetian Waterway
Park got 15.
That.meant that 17 other
Z things got six votes. That cer-
Stainly suggests we need to
renourish our beaches and
push on with the waterway
park.
Here in summary are the.
other things that, people
would like to see:
1 Making the Island
Wastewater Treatment Plant a
passive park got the most
votes in that category, though
only 16 votes.
2- Improvements to existing
parks, including benches,
gazebos and trees.
3 Designating some of the
airport for open spaces.
4 Developing a "Circus
Park" at the airport to keep
the heritage of the circus,
including the. circus training
that goes on there.
5 A performing arts hall
(one person asked to replace
the athletic fields at the high
school for this purpose,
which is rather impractical).
People also suggested using
the current school auditori-
um more for outside events.
6 Less development, less
density and more open
spaces in developments.
7 More disaster shelters (27,
votes). Most people don't
want to evacuate, they want
good shelters to go to. This,
, we were told, has changed
since last year's hurricanes.
Last year people wanted to
leave the area; now that they
have seen how difficult it is to
evacuate and there is no guar-
antee of safety (remember
'what happened in Arcadia),


shelters are higher on the list.
8 Pet shelters (almost as
important as human shelters
- 20 for human, 16 votes for
pets).
9 UsingVenice High School
stadium for concerts.
10 Improve the park sys-
tem by adding outdoormusic
venues, and a boat ramp and
dockage at the old chamber
building.
On the question of
whether people thought the
interlocal agreement
between the county and city
was good, about a third didn't
knowwhat it was and another
third felt that the two ought to
work better together.
Certainly there was an
anti-development feeling. It
showed up in trying to get
developers to save habitat or
provide hurricane' shelter
space, and a couple of differ-
ent ways of restricting orplain
stopping growth.
Probably in an ideal world
it would be nice to have no
more growth, but that is just
not feasible. Yet it did it set a
framework for feelings about
being careful with our envi-
ronment and our community.
In any case, it was a good
exercise with some excellent
ideas that will help shape
some good changes. This
marked about the halfway
point in the meetings to be
held, so there will be more
opportunities to get involved.

By's Crack: An
acupuncture doctor told
me on the phone: "Take a
safety pin and call me in
the morning."


I wonder who has been rel-
egated to the ugly little shack
with the green plastic roof on
the main roof of the Venice
Little Theatre. That really
needs a facelift or maybe
demolition. I wonder if they
had ARB approval.

You will soon be able to
receive the Venice Gondolier
Sun just as it appears on
paper in an electronic form.
We are installing, slick new
software that allows someone
to purchase, at greatly
reduced cost, the newspaper
just as it is.
How it works is that each
component of the paper can
be opened up full size. Even
the pictures and ads can be
enlarged. This is a popular
way for people who want a
second copy at work, or are
returning north and want to
keep in touch very inexpen-
sively.
As you know, we do not
include many parts of our
paper on our Web site, so this
will allow people to read
some columns, Let'em Have
It and other popular parts of
the paper that are not on the
Web site. We don't have the
start-up date yet, but it will be
soon.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


What they don't know will hurt them


Editor:
Education in this century is providing students with all the
tools necessary to make well-informed decisions in all aspects'
of their lives.
It is as if you give a teen-ager a car and don't tell him speed
kills; driving and drinking is dangerous; and gasoline is highly
flammable. If they know about speed, they'll drive too fast. If
they know about drinking and driving, they'll get drunk and
drive. If they know about the volatility of gasoline, they'll light
a match.
Facts, figures and scientific evidence presented in a non-
judgmental, factual, compassionate, even-handed manner
will arm our students with the tools to make a clear, intelligent
and moral decision.
Abstinence is the most obvious form of protection in sexual
matters. And, obviously, more than 50 percent of teen-agers
under 19 choose not to abstain.
If youth are sexually active and not aware of the dangers and
the tools available to safeguard their health, whose fault is it
when their lives are destroyed?
Do parents blame the school when their child is about to
become a parent at 15 because he or she was not taught birth
control alternatives? Will the school district be responsible for
child support when a student becomes pregnant because she
was not educated on what precautions to take?
Sound foolish? Why then are we allowing a handful of indi-
viduals to decide what will or will not be taught to all of our stu-
dents?
Parents have the right to decide for their own child, not very
child.

I read with great
interest the article in' the
Gondolier Sun this morning
about the 100th anniversary
of Rotary. As a former
Rotarian I have some good,
memories.
Then I came upon the
statement that Rotary is the
oldest and largest service club
in the world. You need to cor-
rect that.
Lions Clubs International,
founded in 1917, has 1.4 mil-
lion members in 193 coun-
tries, and 46,000 clubs.


I am sure you will want to
correct this oversight.

Complete studies
needed on evolution
Editor:
Man's quest and need for
knowledge is unquenchable.
Scientific conclusions are
reached after thousands of
meticulous studies conduct-
ed with integrity and aimed at
man's enlightenment and
progress.
It is depressing to observe


the facts accumulated con-
cerning evolutionary 'devel-
opment of man and the histo-
ry of the Earth and the solar
systems contemptuously
thrown aside by major ele-
ments of society whose fear is
that science attacks the con-
cept of an after-death life
arranged and controlled by a
heaven-dwelling superhu-
man.
Some spokespersons of
religious concepts are cur-
rently demanding "thorough
study" of scientific concepts
of evolution, particularly
man's. Fine. Along with those
studies should be intelligent,
study of the mythology
involved in the development
of religious theologies.
One would be blind if he or
she could not observe that the
clash of religious creeds is the
major basis to current world
turmoil,.

Editor:
Some comments about
unfair tax regulations.
My husband I have owned
a single-wide motor coach in
North Port since 2001. Every
year, our taxes have gone up
because of increased market
value, yet at the same time we
are having great difficulty get-
ting homeowners' insurance
because the insurance com-
panies say that our 1973
mobile home is too old. We
are in a park where we own
the land.
If our home is so valuable,
why should getting home-
owners' insurance be so diffi-
cult? It seems as though the
value of our coach depends


on who is evaluating our
property.
I've called the tax office
two different years,, but the
process and forms for
addressing the situation are
so involved it's discouraging.
Now, to add the difficulties,
I've been reading how the city
of North Port may be increas-
ing water rates.
There again we winter resi-
dents are being hurt. We stay
here for about four months,
yet we have to pay for water
that we don't use for 12
months.
No one ever told us about
this when we were looking at
properties. We are again pay-
ing more than our fair share
and now they are talking
about future increases.
Please, let's not heari the
old refrain, "If you don't like it
leave." These are the legiti-
mate concerns of people on a
fixed income.
We love staying here, and
we do help the economy in
many ways, but how do we
get these concerns address?

THE WORD ON THE STREET


Question: Should people
whose property has been stolen
have to buy it back from a third
party (pawn shop, storage unit
auction, etc.)?


Kelly


Joseph Kelly (Venice):
Depends on what has been
stolen. If it is a ring or some-
thing that has value, or even
something with sentimental
value, then the person should
get it back without having to
buy it back.


Higgins


Bob Higgins (Venice):
People who've had their
belongings stolen should
have some kind of recourse. I
don't feel they should have to
buy it back. The person who
took it should be made to pay.


Harris '
Urlin Harris (Ohio): The
contents policy of homeown-
ers property insurance prob-
ably covers it. But, if a third
party ends up with stolen
property they ought to give it
back. That's just part of doing
business. They aren't going to
be on the hook (for the loss).


Fonseca


Robert Fonseca (Venice):
You shouldn't have to buy it
back. Why should you buy it
back, especially if you know
who took the belongings?
Take it out of that person's
pay.
Theresa Behrens (Venice):
No. That doesn't seem fair.
You are the injured party.
Everybody is trying to make
money off it. Remember,

Bush now seems to be the
whipping boy for all ills. A
recent letter accused Bush of
maintaining the fanciful
"locked box" theory for Social
Security Al Gore spoke of the
"locked box" ad nauseum.
Did Gore not invent the World
Wide Web as well?
Another goes so far as to
say Bush will "lie, cheat, brag,
steal and take care of his
ranch." Really? Is this person

so, more power to him.

Dottie Clinch (Venice): No.
I wouldn't think you'd have to
buy your own possessions
back. It was your stuff to
begin with. It's only common
sense. If the police find it, they
should hold it until someone
claims it. If no one claims it,
then they could sell it.

Got a question you'd like
us to ask? Send it to The Word
on the Street, 200 E. Venice
Ave., Venice, FL 34285, or e-
mail it to bmudge
@venicegondolier.com.


We will be offering it free
for a while so that you can test
drive it. For our mail sub-
scribers this will shorten that
terrible lag time in getting
your paper.

I hope when you read this
the Venice High girls basket-
ball team will have won the
regional championship and
be on the Way to the state
championship, while many of
the boys on our wrestling
team will have come away
with high honors at state.

Let me clarify that C.J.
Fishman is not a cheater in
golf. With the scores he
shoots, no way could he be
cheating.

The Kiwanis Club and
Venice Gondolier Sun Expo
will be next Saturday and
Sunday at the YMCA. There
will be a wide range of ven-


dors, and this year for first
time there will be seminars.
The admission to the expo is a
donation of a $1 toward
Kiwanis youth projects or a
can of food for All Faiths Food
Bank; bring two or three.
There will. be giveaways, a
food court, lots of county and
health booths and a whole lot
more.

We have printed more pig
maps for those wanting to
know where they can see
these artistic marvels. Many
people want to ready them-
selves for the auction to be
held April 30 at the Venice
Yacht Club. You can pick one
up at the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce, the
Venice Art Center and the
Gondolier Sun.

A proposal to put height
restrictions on a small area of
the island was turned down
by the planning commission.
This needs to be more com-
prehensive, covering a much
bigger area, if not the entire
island. There is a very strong


sentiment to act, act soon
and act comprehensively.
Certainly the effort to get
something goingis welcome,
but let's do something closer
to what we all want.

The Rotary Futures
Program put on a college
night sponsored by John.
Holic and A.G. Edwards.
About 500 people attended
the event, with more than 40
schools showing their pro-
grams off. It turned out to be a
great success:

For all of the rose growers
out there, it is time to prune
your roses. I have been work-
ing on mine for the last week
and hope by Monday to have
them all done. Then we have
to wait for those beautiful
blooms again.

Trees still hurting from hurricanes


BY STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER


SUN PHOTO BY JONATHAN FREDIN
Ralph E. Mitchell, director of the Charlotte County Extension
Service, examines a slash pine tree battered by Hurricane
Charley. Many trees are stressed out and may not survive the
battering they took from the hurricane.


Driving down Harborview
Road, many of the oaks and
pines lay dead, snapped in half
by the horrific winds of Hur-
ricane Charley. ,
Many trees still standing
are struggling with the stress
they suffered from the hurri-
cane, and some of them may
actually be dying from the
wounds they received, said
Ralph E. Mitchell, director of the
University of Florida's Charlotte
County Extension Service.
"Many of the trees twisted,
and there's internal damage that
is- only now coming out,"
Mitchell said. 'A 145-mph wind
is hard to resist-no matter
what you are.
"The sabal palms are pretty
much hurricane resistant, so
there's something good there,"
he added. "They are able to
sway with the winds quite well.
Actually, all palms are related to
grasses, not trees, and that may
be another reason they sur-
vived."
With trees like oaks, those
that had two main trunks had
the more difficult time trying to
survive the storm and may
actually be weakened .now for
any future hurricane, Mitchell
said. Charley left many trees


cropped--something which he
thought was very understand-
able, but could lead to their ulti-
mate demise.
Right now, many trees are
trying to put out as many new
leaves as they can to survive.
"Plants have hormones that
suppress side growth," Mitchell
said. "When the hormones are
removed, then they'll grow out,
like they are now."
Get a pro
But all the sprouts, often
"poorly attached," will often
not grow back as strong as
the original branch, espe-
cially if the tree isn't pruned
properly. Mitchell empha-
sized the importance of hir-
ing certified arborists to
trim trees.
"There will be no proper
healing at that stub," he said,
pointing to trees that were
improperly trimmed back or
suffered broken limbs in the
hurricane. Tree branches, he
said, should be cut to the
branch's "collar," thick portion
of a branch at its base.
"You can sometimes trim a
branch back properly, but in
some cases, it's a hopeless
cause," Mitchell said.
Just as stressed-out humans
suffer, trees under stress have a
more difficult time resisting dis-


eases and repelling pests,
Mitchell said. According to
researchers, trees can develop
"scar tissue" around a trimmed
branch; however, unlike people
and animals, trees aren't able to
heal injured tissue.
Lonesome pines
Pines didnotfarewellinhur-
ricanes.
Hurricane-injured pines
could become susceptible to
infestations of pine barkbeetles,
a nondescript brown insect the
size of a grain of rice.
"When a pine is in good
health, it will actually put out a
lot of sap that will actually push
out the beetle where it'strying to
bore in," Mitchell said. "But if
the pine can't do that, then the
beetles will get in until they
overwhelmit"


"Sawdust" with the texture of
talcum powder at the base of a
pine's trunk is a sign of a beetle
infestation, Mitchell said.
"(Trees) are like people;
you can take only so many
stresses before you crack," he
said.
Dying pines, he said, wll start
showing signs of browning needles.
Depending upon conditions,
Mtfchdlsaid, apinecoulddie quick-
ly inweeksormonths.
"Of course, you have to give
trees a chance," he said.
When asked how long it will
take the trees to recover from
the stress caused by Charley,
Mitchell said, "Trees will always
be battling the outside world."

Governor lush unveils

recovery spending plan
By BARRY MILLMAN
STAFF WRITER
TALLAHASSEE Governor Jeb Bush's plan for
spending more than $350 million to help Florida's
storm-shattered housing market recover from last
year's hurricanes was unveiled Monday.
Recommendations in the plan to replace hurricane-
damaged housing and expand affordable housing for
low-income Floridians were approved unanimously
last week by the Hurricane Housing Work Group -
keeping intact a revised funding formula that will
ensure tens of millions of dollars in additional recovery
aid will be funneled to Charlotte, DeSoto and Hardee
counties.
Bush, who appointed the panel, included $354.4
million in one-rime hurricane housing recovery funds,
in his proposed budget for next year.
Those funds are in addition to $192.9 million in
recurring state affordable housing funds and a $100.9
million supplemental Community Development Block
Grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban
Development.
"We have taken the approach of looking at all
possible solutions in leveraging these funds to best
meet our housing goals," said Lt. Governor Toni
Jennings, who chaired the panel, in a statement
released Monday.
"Having a home means more than having four walls
and a roof; it means safety and comfort for families.
Our hope is to provide communities with greater
flexibility to address the housing recovery concerns of
those families still in need."
"Lt. Governor Jennings and the work group have
recommended creative ways to combine the strengths
of the public and private sectors to help Floridians
rebuild," said Bush, who was traveling Monday on a
trade mission in Columbia. "The temporary housing

contained a funding formula
that would have widely
distributed the hurricane
recovery program money in
Bush's budget to 57 of Florida's
67 counties.
However, following an
article in the Sun outlining
some of the plan's inequities,
state officials conferred with"
emergency management
personnel, who agreed the
formula should be weighted
more heavily toward the 11
counties suffering the most
severe economic and physical
damage from the hurricanes.
Under the revised formula,
those "tier-one" counties -
Charlotte, DeSoto and Hardee
counties among them will
split 80 percent of the housing
recovery money in Bush's
proposed budget. .
The revision to the formula
is especially significant
because it is expected to be
used as a guide for spending
future housing and recovery
money as it becomes avail-
able.
As an example, the state
Department of Community
Affairs is finalizing a separate
plan to spend the HUD grant
money, which is expected to
show a similar revision to its
funding formula, likewise
favoring the state's hardest-hit
counties.
The work group's recom-
mendations for spending the
one-time, nonrecurring state
money include:
Creation of a locally
administered hurricane
housing recovery program
that would accommodate the
different housing needs of
communities. This $208
million program would
provide special incentives and
requirements to focus on

Creation of a rental
recovery loan program that
would leverage available
federal resources and private
capital to build and rehabili-
tate affordable rental housing
to help communities respond
to their hurricane recovery
needs. Of this, $95.5 million
would be used to provide gap
financing to help create rental
communities that would lbe
affordable for at least 50
years.
Creation of a $20 million

program that would leverage

program that would provide
$20.5 million in repair funds

In addition to the recom-

housing programs, the work
group also proposed a $10
million community contribu-
tion tax credit program to
encourage contributions and
volunteer labor from Florida
businesses to support com-
munity development and
housing programs like Habitat

The plan also calls for
spending $400,000 in training

tions, and others to help them
identify and utilize available
programs and resources to
assist rebuilding.

Photio courle.sy of The House ,ou Build by Duo, Dickinson published by Trie Taunton Press in 2004 Photograprier Ken Guimaker.


Detailed planning of a home's exterior design is just as important as the interior
design. Reduced lot size and unusual site characteristics make it important that
house plans be adapted to the site with the interior and exterior being
designed together to eliminate unnecessary costs.


* HOME
From page 5

materials to save- money..
Many people don't realize that.
only 20 to 25-percent of the,
total construction cost is
materials, Dickinson said. By
contrast, automobiles' materi-
als represent the main share of
the cost.
American families have dra-
matically changed in the last
40 years and need different
designs to accommodate sin-
gle parents or people taking
care of their parents, Dickin-
son said. Homes are being
built larger to handle the
demographics of the market-
place, he said.
Some tract homes are built
too quickly and can end up
with minor problems in the
plumbing or other systems,
Dickinson said. "Most people
are taught to buy quickly; it's
that instant gratification.
Building a house from scratch
is not instant gratification, but
it's personally rewarding."
If a homeowner has extra
time, they can serve as their
own general contractor and
save as much as 15 percent,
Dickinson said.
The reality, however, is that
most people work and cannot
spend enough time on the
project. Without doing contin-
uous checks on costs, the pro-


ject can grow out of control
and the homeowner could
lose everything, including the
lot, he said.
He suggests dedicating five
to 10 hours a week for one to
three years on the project.
The owner has to constantly
monitor the work, Johnston
said. An owner makes separate
contracts with the architect
and the contractor, so the
architect isn't obligated to
watch over construction and is
not liable for problems, she
said.
Her book pro-ides tips on
how to interview contractors,
which includes asking about
how workers are paid and
whether the contractor is in
the midst of a divorce or
health problems. Johnston
also advises how to interview
the contractor's clients, with
questions such as how clean
and safe the site was kept and
whether a lien was filed on the
property.
Don't forget to consider the
outside of the house as well as
the interior design, Dickinson
said. The house and landscap-
ing should be designed
together, especially on an
unusual site, such as a slope or
coastal area, he said. "Hiring a
landscape architect makes a
lot of sense, because you're
not just building a house,
you're buying a site," he said.
Hiring Dickinson was vital for


Franz Pielmeier, a Southbury,
Conn. homeowner who said
he didn't know the first thing
about building on ledges and
slopes. Dickinson pointed out
that one site Pielmeier and his
wife Susan were considering
would have required a lot of
blasting and would have been
too expensive.
"In Connecticut, all the best
land was taken 200 years ago,"
Pielmeier said. Most vacant
lots are on slopes or near wet-
lands areas.
The Pielmeiers, who have
two daughters, had a relatively
small budget of $200,000 in
1994.
With Dickinson's assistance,
the couple constructed a
2,400-square-foot home that
met all their needs. They saved
money by installing carpet
instead of hardwood floors in
two bedrooms and working
with Dickinson's drafters.
"I could live here through
(my daughters') high school
years, college and beyond,
because it's comfortable for
us," Pielmeier said.
Since more than 50 percent
of new construction dollars in
the United States is spent on
single-family homes, owners
should take pride in those
homes, Dickinson said. "You
have to have dedication. If you
really want to do it, it will get
done."

The passion of Kyle: Kid photographer


STORY BY GREG GILES -STAFF WRITER

An area 10-year-old may be on his way to
becoming the next Ansel Adams or Clyde
Butcher.


Most parents wouldn't
trust their 10-year-old with an
expensive camera. but then
most 10-year-olds don't have
the passion for photography
that Kyle Case has.
"I literally have to fight for
my camera," jokes Kyle's
mother, Janelle Case.
"He just loves to click
away.
"I'm crazy with the cam-
era," Kyle admits.
He started out on a Sam-
sung instamatc a year ago
and got hooked. Since Christ-
mas Kyle has been clicking
away on his mother's new 35
millimeter camera a
Canon EOS Digital Rebel with
exchangeable lens.


"My mom's camera is so
awesome," says Kyle.
He gets the camera out
whenever they go on outings,
and sometimes when they
simply go out on errands.
Like a teacher who revels
in the teachable moment,
Kyle immerses himself when
he is taking photos. He is in
the zone.
Kyle's got good eyes and a
keen sense of composition.
He's already mastered the art
of focusing. He is fascinated
by the way light falls on
objects and how the picture
changes as light moves across
an object. Combined, com-
position, lighting and focus
contribute to the "eye" of a


Budding photographer Kyle Case, a fourth-grader at Venice
Elementary School.


photographer. Even more
important than having good
eyes is having a good "eye."
Kyle is well on his way to
developing his "eye."
Kyle's ph6to album is filled
with pictures capturing the
sunlight as it sparkles through
tall grass, trees or buildings.
He's always on the lookout for
the perfect sunset. He and his
mother regularly walk the
Venice beach up through
Casey Key searching for the
next striking visual.
Another favorite subject is
his cat, Pepper, who regularly
tests Kyle's ability to capture a
mo-ing image. The cat usual-
ly starts moving as soon as die
camera is pointed in its direc-
tion.
Travel shots are another
interest. His favorite place to
shoot is Wildwood, N.J..
where the Cases are originally
from.
His pholo collection, num-
bering in the hundreds by
now, doctunents his travels.
Kyle has pictures of the Color
Guard at Arlington National
Cemetery in Washington,
D.C., Daytona Beach and its
famous speedway, Charlotte
County Speedway, Florida's
hurricane aftermath. Venice's
North Jety, and of course, the
Pigs of Venice.
Why does he do it?
"Just because of the beau-
ty;" he said.
"\We will be driving along
and he will see something
that touches him," said Mrs.
Case. "He makes me back the
car up, for example, so he can
get a photograph of the light
coming through a stand of
trees."
"We're crazy. \e'll stop at
anything." says his mother. "A
big ball of twine; anything."
It's all part of the process to
develop his "eye."
Kyle's photo assistants are
his little brother, Jonathan,
and neighborhood buddy,

Hospice of Southwest

Florida doctor

receives recertification


STAFF REPORT


Hospice of Southwest Flor-
ida's Dr. J. Anne W. Pollett,
vice president of Medical
Affairs, recently has been re-
certified in Hospice and
Palliative Medicine. Dr. Pollett
is one of an elite group of
physicians who first became
board certified in hospice
and palliative medicine eight
years ago.
Today, more than 1,900
fellow physicians have
achieved such certifications.
Hospice and palliative medi-
cine is the medical discipline
of the broad therapeutic
model known as hospice
and palliative care. The disci-
pline and model. of care are


devoted to achieving the best
possible quality of life for the
patients and family through-
out the course of a life-threat-
ening illness through the re-
lief of suffering and the con-
trol of symptoms.
Hospice and palliative
medicine helps the patient
and family face the prospect
of death assured that comfort
will be a priority, values and
decisions will be respected,
spiritual and psychosocial
needs will be addressed,
practical support will be
available and opportunities
will exist for growth and de-
velopment. Hospice in the
United States is an organized
service to patients, their fam-
ilies and significant others..

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


4






By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. My husband is only 52
years old and thinks he is too
young to possibly have any
hearing loss. Yet he is always
asking me "what did the.
say" and our TV is so loud
our neighbors have
mentioned it. He says even if
he did need a hearing aid,
there is no way he would
wear one. What should I do?
A. Tell him he's not alone. The
results of a recent study
indicate that hearing loss is
more widespread among baby
boomers than previously
estimated. The study looked at
those persons ages 40-59 years
and found that half of those
surveyed had some degree of
hearing loss. ranging from mild
to moderate levels. The study
indicates that. boomers are
losing their hearing at a more
rapid pace than past
generations because they have
encountered more noise
pollution than any other
generation. Half of those
persons with hearing losses
said they were most affected by
their problem at home and 44%
said their hearing loss causes
problems in social situations.
Despite these finding only one
in three had had a recent
hearing test and most were
doing very little to find
appropriate solutions to their
problems. Tell your husband he
needs to have a hearing
assessment by a certified
Audiologist in order to
determine his hearing ability
and to discuss possible
solutions which may or may
not involve the use of hearing
aids. If it is found that hearing
aids could be of help, tell him
many of the. latest instruments
are virtually invisible and are
very comfortable to wear.
However, these very tiny
hearing aids can only be used
successfully by those persons
with mild hearing losses. The
longer his problem continues
undiagnosed, the more his
hearing ability could
deteriorate. Call the
Audiologist at Woodmere
Hearing & Balance Centers,
Inc. at 492-4327 (HEAR) to
schedule an audiologic
assessment today.

The future of Social Security depends on some important changes


Dear Savvy Senior,
I am a recently divorced 42
year-old woman and would like
to ask about the future of Social
Security. I'm confused by these
gloom-and-doom scenarios that
say Social Security' is going
broke. As I look to my retire-


ment future 20 or 25 years from
now, I'm wondering what to
expect. Will Social Security be
there for me or my kids when
it's our turn? Social Security
Cynic
Dear Cynic,
Yes, Social Security will be
there! But, a few adjustments
will need to be made to the
current system. Lots of
younger Americans today
have concerns about the
future of Social Security. So
many in fact, that a survey
done several years ago
showed that nearly twice as
many young adults believe
UFO's exist as believe Social
Security will exist by the time
they retire.


Social Security funding
Many people think of
Social Security as a great big
"piggy bank" that you put
money into when you're
working and then take out
when you retire, which is not
true. The benefits that
retirees receive today are
paid mostly from the taxes
that are collected from
today's workers.
Currently, Social Security
is taking in more in taxes
than they are paying out in
benefits, with the excess
funds going into Social
Security's trust funds.
However by 201Q Social
Security will begin paying out
more in benefits than they
will collect in taxes, and the


trust funds will also be used
up by around 2042. At that
time, if no changes are made,
Social Security would still be
able to pay you around 70 to
75 percent of your benefits
owed.
Aging America
The main reason for Social
Security's long-range financ-
ing problem is demograph-
ics. When the Social Security
program was created in 1935,
a 65 year old had an average
life expectancy of 12 1/2
more years. Today it's 171/2
more years.
Also, 77 million baby
boomers will begin retiring in


about 2010, and in about 30
years, there will be nearly
twice as many older
Americans as there are today.
At the same time, the num-
ber of workers paying into
Social Security per beneficia-
ry will drop.
Savvy fact
The poverty rate of elder
Americans today is around
10 percent. Without Social
Security, that poverty rate
would be more than 40 per-
cent.
Fixing Social Security
There are a variety of ways
to ensure the long-term sta-


ability of Social Security. Here
are some options being con-
sidered.
Increase Social Security.
taxes by 1 percent or raising
the salary level on which
taxes are collected. ,In 2004,
the Social Security tax ends
once a person makes
$87,900. Currently, Social
Security taxes are 12.4 per-
cent.
Decrease benefits,
whether by cutting the
amount, or raising the retire-
ment age.
Reduce yearly Cost of
Living Adjustments (COLA),

Ground water protection: What you need to know


BY NATIONAL GROUND WATER
ASSOCIATION
GUEST COLUMN

Many water well owners
know that ground water is
pumped into their home,
but often they do not know
much else about ground
water. Myths abound about
ground water, which often
makes it seem mysterious.
What follows are answers
to several of the most popu-
lar ground water questions
as well as tips on protecting
this drinking water source,
which helps supply 47
percent of the United States
population.


What is ground water,
and where does it come
from?
Ground water is the water
that fills cracks, voids and
other openings in beds of
rocks, sand and soil. Each
drop of rain that soaks into
the soil moves downward, fills
available space and forms a
large subsurface storage of
water that interacts with any
substance that comes in con-
tact with it.
Many people believe that
ground water comes from ra-
pidly moving underground
rivers and lakes. However,
that is not true.


What is the relationship
of ground water to sur-
face water?
Many streams and lakes
are "windows" to the Earth's
water table. In large part, a
stream represents water that
has moved from the ground
into the stream channel. Most
ground water flows directly
into streams, rivers, and lales
through stream beds or the
bottom of lakes. On occasion,
ground water emerges out of
an aquifer at a land surface-
which makes a spring.
Is ground water plentiful?
It certainly is., About 98
percent of the available fresh


water on Earth is ground
water. Every day, the United
States uses about 83.3 billion
gallons of this water for a vari-
ety of purposes.
The amount of ground
water storage dwarfs the pre-
sent surface water supply. At
any given moment, it is 20 to
30 times greater than the am-
ount of water in all the lakes,
streams and rivers of the Uni-
ted States combined.
Are there things citizens
can do to protect ground
water?
Without a doubt. Unfor-
tunately some people think
since ground water is under-


ground there is nothing they
can do to help ensure its qual-
ity, or they think only federal,
state, and local agencies can
determine protection. How-
ever, everyone can protect
water quality to some degree.
What is the best thing a
well owner can do to pro-
tect ground water?
The first step-and the best
one-is for well owners to reg-
ularly monitor the water qua-
lity within their own wells. In
fact, it is recommended that
well owners have their wells
checked at least once a year
for bacteria or other unwant-
ed constituents. Devices such


as water softeners, reverse-
osmosis systems and ion-ex-
change systems can be used
to treat the water for in-home
applications.
To reduce the possibility of
nitrates in ground water, well
owners should have their sep-
tic tank cleaned and serviced
every two years. This elimi-
nates the opportunity for
waste backing up and un-
wanted materials leaching
into the soil.
What else can be done to
aid ground water quality?

Combating sprawl with smart growth


FROM THE EDITORS OF E/THE
ENVIRONMENTAL MAGAZINE
GUEST COLUMNISTS


Dear EarthTalk: What is
"sprawl" and how do we keep it
in check for the sake of the envi-
ronment? G. Korchowsky,
Yardley, Pa.
A. Sprawl is the tendency
of cities to expand into outly-
ing agricultural and rural
lands, creating developed
suburbs where there was
once open space. The nega-
tive effects of sprawl include
the loss of parks and farm-
land, clogged highways and
urban decay as people aban-
don metropolitan centers. It
is usually driven by human
population increases, and
ironically, people's desire to
escape the "concrete jungle"
to quieter and more natural
surroundings.
According to Tim Frank of
the Sierra Club, sprawl in fact
destroys more than 2 million
acres of parks, farms and
other open space each year
in the United States alone.
Further, by spreading devel-
opment out over large am-
ounts of land, sprawl puts
longer distances between
homes, stores and job cen-
ters, making people more
and more dependent upon
driving. This reliance on dri-
ving in turn leads to more
roads and highways that
chum up natural landscapes
and bring increased pollution.
Staving off sprawl is a
complex and often con-
tentious endeavor, with real
estate developers pitted
squarely against preserva-
tionists. The good news is
that an association of organi-
zations called theo Smart
Growth Network (SGN) is
working to promote develop-
ment that boosts the, econo-
my while still protecting the
environment and enhancing
community vitality.


SGN was formed in 1996
by the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency in part-
nership with several other
government agencies and
nonprofit organizations, in-
cluding the Sierra Club. Pro-
moting public transporta-
tion, keeping farms econom-


ically viable, preserving open
space and restoring urban
centers are key elements of.
SGN's fight against the nega-
tive impacts of sprawl. "What
we are doing is carrying out
activities to educate people
about the consequences of
sprawl and help them realize

Local Doctor Helps Car

Accident Victims Get

Needed Treatment.
Sarasota Car accident victims often feel left out in the cold. No-
only do they have to worry about getting their car properly fixed, they
must deal with insurance company claims adjustors who often times arc
not looking out for their best interest. But thanks to Dr. Sean Stringer,-a
local doctor of chiropractic, Sarasota County residents have someone the.
can trust who will properly document their injuries and make sure they
get treated fairly. "There are so many accident victims who hear about
our complete service and just walk in our office without an appointment
that Ihad to create a free report that describes in detail all the benefits we
provide the accident victim'" says Dr. Stringer.

that steps can be taken to
create smart growth," said
Frank.
Even NASA is lending a
hand. The agency's NAU-
TILUS project provides city
planners with satellite data to
help with decision-making
regarding zoning and devel-


opment. In test regions
throughout the northeastern
United States, city planners
are working with NASA on
developing growth projec-
tions based on satellite maps
and historical growth trends.
Whether these efforts are
any match for the frontier


ethic that still dominates
American culture is yet to be
seen. And with many less
developed nations building
- up their industrial infrastruc-
tures, on a global scale the
sprawl problem is likely to
get worse before it gets bet-
ter.

WATER from 7B


pie who are not well owners
-can aid in curbing non-
point source pollution,
which causes the majority of
ground water contamina-
tion. Non-point source pol-
lution includes runoff of
pesticides and herbicides,
soil erosion, and street
runoff.
The best practice to com-
bat non-point source pollu-,
tion is common sense. When
mixing toxic chemicals such
as motor oil, antifreeze or
fertilizers, do so with


extreme caution. Avoid
spilling the chemicals on the
ground because they can
penetrate the soil and enter
the ground water system.
The best place to mix chem-
icals is on cement to avoid
ground water infiltration or .
runoff into surface water
caused by accidental spills.
Also, when working with
chemicals, read the direc-
tions and never go above the
recommended mixing ratio
or over-apply chemicals to
gardens and fields.


Visitors urged to leave no pet left behind


BY PEGGY HAUPTMAN
GUEST WRITER


Our winter ,visitors are
thinking of packing their cars
for their return North in a
month or so. We know you've
relished our sunny, warm
winter and the chance to play
golf everyday. We applaud
you for making our commu-
nity a better place by volun-
teering countless hours at our
parks, hospitals and nonprof-
it agencies.
A, kindness we sometimes
overlook is the generosity of
our winter visitors to feed and


care for abandoned pets that
wander up to their lanais.
Some of these furry friends
lost their way after the hurri-
canes. Some were abandoned
when their owners saw their
homes blown away and could
barely care for themselves, let
alone their pets.
We know our winter visi-
tors have only the kindest of
intentions when they feed the
displaced dogs and cats that
beg with wide-eyed hope. But
when the visitors leave, who
will care for them?
Unfortunately, there is not
always someone else to take


over the kindness of daily
care.
Because many of these
pets are not spayed or neu-
tered, springtime brings cer-
tain pregnancies and more
stray kittens and puppies. Yes,
springtime is always a busy
and costly time for animal
shelters in Florida.
The result is that the "low-
kill," overcrowded shelters are
forced to take the life of heal-
thy pets to create space in the
overflowing kennels. Their
open-door policy leaves no
alternative for them. The "no-
kill" facilities must close their


doors to newcomers once
space is filled. Their no-kill
policy also leaves no alterna-
tive for them.
We're asking our winter
visitors to consider being pro-
active before they pack their
last suitcase. -
We ask that if you've help-
ed a stray pet while you were
visiting and enjoyed their
brief companionship, please
consider becoming the pet's
new permanent parents. If
you are certain that the pet
has no owner and you've
checked for ID or talked to
neighbors to find out owner-


ship, please think about add-
ing the furry companion to
your family. That's really all
the little ones desire a car-
ing, loving permanent home.
If you can't adopt the aban-
doned pet permanently, plea-
se consider their long-term
care. Perhaps you can arrange
with a year-round resident to
assume foster care or adop-
tion of the stray pet. If you
can't find a foster or perma-
nent home for the pet you've
been feeding, we ask that you
call one of the area animal
shelters. Our shelters-whe-
ther "low-kill" or "no-kill"-


C


all have vigorous adoption ;,
programs to find abandoned
pets new loving homes. Of Z
course, all nonprofit shelters f
need year-round support.
Many of our Northern visi-
tors are aware of the plight of
our homeless Florida pets
and support our organiza-
tions even after they have re-
turned North. They carry ^
home with them their sense
of responsibility and caring
concern for the animals. We
thank them and ask for their
continuing support.
Please see PET, 13B ,

Symposia Series links the arts to reading and writing


STAFF REPORT

On March 12, 2005, the
Sarasota County Arts Council
in partnership with the
Sarasota County Schools will
present the first in a series of
symposia and workshops
entitled, The Art of Literacy.
The March 12, event, from 8
a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the
Sarasota Hyatt will features
interactive workshops by four
artists:
Gary Barker, lead artist for
the Garfield comic strip, pre-
sents
"Picture the Story." Barker has
worked on the Garfield comic
strip for 20 years primarily as
an artist but more recently as
a writer. A native of Indi-'
anapolis, he was inspired to


push himself in all areas of
academics by an art teacher
who also inspired him to pur-
sue a career in art. His many
speaking engagements and
work with schools is his "thank
you" to that teacher.
Malcolm Robertson, a
Scottish artist works in a vari-
ety of materials, including
steel, marble, concrete, glass,
stone and bronze will present
"The Visual Vocabulary." His
public works have been com-
missioned throughout Eur-
ope. Robertson's "Open Book
Gateway," a 19-foot tall work
in stainless steel welcomes
patrons to the Fruitville Li-
brary. It was designed as a site-
specific piece with words and
quotes cut through the
"pages" of the book in three


languages. Robertson splits
his time between Sarasota and
Sarasota's Sister City, Dun-.
fermline, Scotland.
Artie Almeida, nationally
known music education spe-
cialist, presents "Music
Speaks." Almeida is a music
specialist at Bear Lake Ele-
mentary, Altamonte Springs,
Florida and was the 1999
Florida Music Educator of the
Year. She is author of Music
Game series published by
Warner Brothers and a re-
corder, activity book publish-
ed by Sueta Publications. She.
performs on historical wind
instruments with the renais-
sance ensemble, Ars Antiqua
and has appeared on the NBC
Today show as a jazz saxo-
phonist.


Jack Eddleman, actor, pre-
sents, "Reading for Expres-'
sion." Eddleman is a profes-
sional actor, singer, director
and choreographer who has
performed on Broadway,
staged productions for the

Privatization or personal
investment accounts. This is
a hotly debated topic that
would let young workers
invest a portion of their own
Social Security taxes in their
own Social Security accounts,
such as stocks or bonds.
Critics argue that this is a
high-risk proposition that
could hurt workers if their
investments go sour. They
also say personal accounts
would be expensive to
administer costing between
20 to 40 percent versus the
current system, which cost
around 2 percent.

Financial advice
Dear Savvy Senior,
My wife and I have accumu-
lated a nice nest egg through
years of hard work and lots of
coupon clipping. As we
approach retirement, we want
to protect what we've built, so
we began looking for a financial
expert. My goodness, were we
surprised. There's not only
CPAs, but certified estate advi-
sors (CEAs), registered financial
planers (RFPs), certified senior
specialists (CSSs) and countless
others. There's so many special-
ists out there with titles and let-
ters behind their name I don't
know where to turn. Can you
give us some ideas on how we
can choose a good financial
expert? Title-Free Tom
Dear Tom,
I hear you! In today's
financial world you need a
program and a scorecard just
to keep track of all the differ-
ent players, like the tax
experts, insurance advisors,
investment analysts and
financial planners. In fact,
there are currently more than
70 different organizations
that offer a cer Lified-thJs or
registered-that designation
that can provide financial
services.
Choosing a
financial planner
When choosing a financial
expert, you want to be sure to
select a qualified professional
that you feel comfortable
with and whose area of
expertise fits your specific
needs. Another important
thing to remember is that -
you're in charge! The person
you choose to handle your
money works for you. Here
are a few extra tips to help
you find the right person:
Know what you want. Is it
estate planning or insurance
protection?,And what's your
comfort level in terms of risk?
Will you be able to sleep
through the night during wild
swings in the stock market,
for example? Know yourself
beforehand.
Run the numbers on your
financial planner. Check their
educational background,
experience and specialties.
How big is their practice and
how long they have been in
business? Will they give you
references to people such as
yourself? Will the financial
planner handle your calls or
will he have an assistant do
it? Call the securities or insur-
ance departments in your
state and ask about each
planner's certification and
history of complaints. Also
check with their certifying
organization to see if they are
authorized to use their certi-
fication and ask if they have
ever been disciplined by that
organization.


Find out how the planner
is paid and how much they
charge. Some financial
experts are paid a fee, based
on the number of hours they
put into your plan. Others are
compensated from commis-
sions based on products or
services they sell you, like a






U. ',i'r-, ii r i l I:,..


type of insurance or a mutual
fund. And some are paid by
both fees and commission.
Get it in writing! Ask the
planner to provide you with a
written agreement that
details the services that will
be provided and what they
will cost. Also, be sure they
are certified in each of these
areas.
Know your rights. You
have the right to understand
the risks with any financial
recommendation that is
made. You have the right to
know that your confidential
information is secure and the
right to be involved in any
decision involving your
money.
Stuff happens
A good thing to keep in
mind when working with
your financial planner is that
stuff happens. Things like ,
inflation, a bear stock market
or tax laws might change.
Remember that a good plan-
ner can help you prepare for
the worst, but they can't elim-
inate the risks. Also, don't
expect your financial planner
to turn you into a millionaire.
but, they should realistically
be able to help you build and
protect assets. .
Savvytips
To help you find a good
financial planner, start by
asking your family members,
friends, business associates,
accountant or insurance
agent.
The Certified Financial
Planning Board of Standards
also offers a free Financial
Planning Resource Kit, that
can help you select a finan-
cial planner. Visit cfp.net or

'This benefit of seeing ... can come only if you pause a while,
extricate yourself from the maddening mob of quick impressions
ceaselessly battering our lives, and look thoughtfully at a quiet
image... the viewer must be willing to pause, to look again, to
meditate." Dorothea Lange, Photographer (1895-1965)


Small town charm? Big city traffic


JEFF TAVARES
PHOTO EDITOR


As'you wait in traffic fin
Venice, perhaps reading the
newspaper and enjoying your
morning coffee, ponder these
numbers.
According to the Florida
Department of Transporta-
tion's Transportation Statistics
Office, an average of 42,500
vehicles travel on U.S. 41 By-
pass, and between 16,000 and
18,500 travel on U.S. 41 Busi-
ness, through Venice each day.
"The numbers are adjust-
ed for seasonal and non sea-
sonal traffic to obtain the
average" according to Sandra
Thompson, a traffic count
analyst with FDOT.
Accidents on 1-75 and U.S.
41 that result in temporary
road closures have backed
traffic up for hours in one or
both directions.
In a speech before the


National Press Club on Nov.
19, 2002, then Acting Associ-
ate Administrator of the Fed-
eral' Highway Administra-
tion's Office of Operations Jeff
Paniati made the following
points regarding traffic con-
gestion.
Congestion results in 5.7
billion person hours of delay
annually in the United States.
Between 1980 and 1999,
route miles of highways in-
creased 1.5 percent while ve-
hicle miles of travel grew by
76 percent. By 2000 more
than 42,500 miles of high-
ways in the 50 states and the
District of Columbia were
congested (as defined by
vehicle/service ratios of 0.8
or higher). More than 6,000
of these miles were in rural
areas.
FHWA forecasts that
freight transportation will
nearly double in the next
twenty years, placing addi-


tional burdens on intermodal
connectors, international
gateways, and other parts of
he highway system.
The Texas Transportadon
Institute estimates that within
major U.S. urban areas, more
than 32 percent of our daily
travel occurs within congested
conditions and the number
continues to climb. In small
urban areas alone (less than
500,000 population), congest-
ed travel increased 300 per-
cent between 1982-1997.
This congestion adds up
to 4.5 billion hours of delay
in 68 urban areas studied by
TTI in 1999. Annual delay
per person was 36 hours per
year. The delay is 41 hours
per person per year in cities
of more than 3 million. In the
worst metropolitan area, Los
Angeles, the delay was 56
hours per person per year.
Between 1982-1999, annual
delay per person in the 68


metropolitan areas increased
at a compound rate of 7 per-
cent (from 11 to 36 hours).
Highway congestion is
not just a problem of recur-
ring "rush-hour" delay in
major cites. TTI estimates

According to

Transportation's
Transportation

through

Venice each

day.


that delay due to incidents
such as breakdowns and
crashes is slightly larger than
delay due to peak-period
commuting in die 68 cities.
The individual cost of
congestion exceeded $900


per driver in 1997, resulting in
MORE THAN $72 billion in
lost wages and wasted fuel.
