Caught in the backwash over backflow


He's the man
VMS boasts the top mid-
dle school teacher.


Council chambers were filled with people
wanting to know why the city is requiring them
to pay for installation and annual testing.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

More than 100 Venice resi-
dents showed up to city hall
Thursday night wanting to
know why they'll have to pay
hundreds of dollars for a newV
plumbing device and then
pay to have it tested every
year.
Answers ranged e\ery-
where from a 30-year-old fed-
eral law to changes last year in
Florida laws to blaming it on
reclaimed water. The threat of


terrorism was even tossed in
as a possible reason.
Regardless, a new city plan
to protect public drinking
water fiom contamination
will require every single-fami-
ly home to have a backflow
prevention device by 2010.
The one selected, called an
RPZ. is among the strongest
and most durable and
most expensive.
"This is just overkill," one
resident said to Utilities Man-
ager Chuis Sharek during the
presentation. "If you're not


Hooping it up


the person to protest, who is
it? Is it the county conmtis-
sioners. the state? I mean, this
is ludicrous."
City staff estimated the
RPZ's cost at around $115,
depending on the supplier,
but the cost to install the
above-ground pipe next to a
watei meter was estimated at
$500. Annual testing to prove
it works could cost up to $50,
according to the city.
However, none of this work
wotdd be done by the cit.
Property owners must hire
private contractors to do the
work and be sure to register
annual testing results with die
city.

Good morning, Gondolier
Sun subscriber,
JOHN KRAFT


The Venice Little Theatre
was hoping to wait until later
this spring to do something
about the roof on its storage
building.
City code enforcement
officers would like the com-
munity theater to move a lit-
de faster. Inspectors issued an
unsafe-building citation be-
cause of the open fascia
around the roof's perimeter.
"That is all quite serious, as
far as the safe building goes,"
said John Patek, the code en-
forcement officer who issued
the citation Tuesday.
"Outside of I the roof ), the


building looks like it's in good
shape. It's being well-main-
tained. I have no problem
-other than just that."
The open fascia is a viola-
tion because it can allow
water, rodent and insect in-
trusion. It's been cited as an
unsafe building because the
roof is now vulnerable to high
winds, especially during hur-
ricane season.
VIT has left the fascia, visi-
ble as one crosses Hatcheat
Creek Bridge, exposed since
last August when it was de-
nied a variance bv the Arc-
hitecture Review Board. The
building is in a theme district.
and \LT wanted to avoid die
costly expenses of meeting


strict appearance standards.
In another three years, the
storage building could be
demolished to make way for a
new cabaret theater and edu-
cation center, said VLT board
president lean Tranmmell.
"We really do try to obey
the rules and be cooperadve,"
said Trammell, who found
out about the citation when
asked for comment. "We will
fix it because it's an issue of
public safetW."
The complaint
Code enforcement officers
do not inspect for compliance
with ARB standards, which in
VLT's case would be Venetian
Theme District.
Patek went out to VLT be-
cause of something that ap-
peared in I'enice Gondolier

Downtown workshop

draws small crowd

Council members were disappointed by the
turnout to discuss creating one-way streets, a
parking garage and more in the Central Business
District.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

Consultants and city staff
were all in place. Informa-
tional tables lined the walls of
council chamber'<
All that was missing were
Venice residents.
The culmination of a study
on the future of Venice's
downtown, costing nearly
$70,000, was held Wednesday
night at city hall. Residents
were invited to fill out surveys
on the choices they liked or if
they prefer leaving downtown
the way it is.
But out of the 40 people in
attendance, only two dozen
were city residents. And out of
those 24. five residents were
members of community
groups who attend nearly
every meeting to voice an
opinion.
The turnout was disheart-
ening to council member
John Simmonds. City staff
plan on using the survey re-
sults to make a reconunenda-
don to council concerning a
new downtown parking ga-
rage, creating one-way streets,
new landscaping and other
projects.


"It's very frustrating,"
Simmnonds said, pointing to
the lack of downtown busi-
ness owners and residents in
attendance. "We've spent a lot
of money on this, and if this is
all the turnout we get, we're
smart enough to figure this
out ourselves. I really don't
know what this tells me."
On the table
There are 19 questions on
the survey asking multiple
questions about traffic pat-
terns, parking, signs and oth-
er potential improvements to
downtown.
For more than a decade,
city council has reserved
$100,000 every year for capital
projects downtown, also
known as the Central Busi-
ness District. This latest study
is to update die downtown
master plan, which maps out
the projects the city will ear-
mark money for.
Major proposed projects
all deal with parking., One
idea is to end two-way traffic
along Miami, Tampa and Ven-
ice avenues in order to create
51 new parking spots by going

County schools audit gets thumbs up


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


A financial audit by Cherry,
Bekaert & Holland gave the
Sarasota County School
District an "unqualified audit
opinion widi no citations in
the management letter" for
the fiscal year ended June 30,
2004. As school children
would say, that's a way
thumbs up.
That's about as good as it
gets, superintendent Gary
Norris told school board
members at a March 2 meet-
ing.


ML


"It's the only clean audit
I've ever experienced," Norris
said.
The audit manager for
CBH, Troy Manning, called
the results truly outstanding.
"Giving the district an
unqualified audit means it
was clean," Manniing said. "A
report with no audit adjust-
ments and no findings means
the district has sound finan-
cial processes in place, sound
reporting and no reportable
weaknesses.
"It's very unusual for an
organization of this size and
complexity," he said.

VMS's Boucher is middle school teacher of the year


It's just the latest in a long line of honors for the
instructor, whom students call "awesome."


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

There was a surprise cele-
bration Wednesday for three
county teachers, including
Venice Middle School's Peter
Boucher. Boucher, who
teaches health to sixth-
through eighth-graders, was
named Middle School Teach-
er of the Year in Sarasota
County.
Virginia White, a physical
education teacher at Engle-
wood, was selected Elemen-
tary School Teacher of the
Year. Carol Williams, who
.teaches court reporting at
Sarasota County Technical
institute, was, named High
School Teacher of the Year.
The three educators will have
their names submitted for,
Sarasota County Teacher of
the Year, to be announced
March 16.
"Mr. Boucher represents
the excellence we've come to
expect in Sarasota County
schools," said Dorothy Stuart,
executive director of The
Education Foundation, spon-
sor of the annual Teacher of
the Year program. "His teach-
ing methods are engaging,
and he integrates other cur-
riculum into his own, some-
thing we're encouraging all
educators to do."
Similar to the way Ed Mc-
Mahon surprised sweep-
stakes winners for years, a
parade of school board digni-
taries, administrators, spon-
sors and media traveled en
masse to each school Wed-
nesday to surprise the final-
ists.
It may have surprised
Boucher, but not VMS princi-
pal Jack Turgeon.
"Mr. Boucher is an out-
standing educator. Very in-
volved, veryt energetic. He's
wV.ha.t we call an exploratory,
teacher," Turgedn said. "He
has great rapport \ith kids.


He's effective. And he lets his
students know he cares about
them no matter their back-
ground.
"Middle school is where
children start to self-identify
and seek independence. Mr.
Boucher is responsible for,
many initiatives about
healthy choices at a time
when children are beginning
to really understand their
body. He has high expecta-
tions, and his students rise up
to meet them."
Making an impact
The gym was filled with the
school's seventh-graders, fel-
low teachers, business spon-
sors and school dignitaries
when Peter Boucher (pro-
nounced Boo-shay) entered,
not quite knowing what to
expect. When he saw his wife,
Melissa, with a rose in her
hands, he knew something
was up. The students went
wild, teachers cheered, cam-
eras clicked and the Venice
Middle School student band
played on.
"You guys are the reason I
received this award," Boucher
later told his seventh-grade
health class. "Thank you for
behaving. And for cheering-
I liked that a lot."
With that Boucher steered
students back to a classroom
activity naming parts of the
human anatomy.
"What makes me wake up
each morning excited to
come to school is knowing
that what I teach in my class-
room may impact my stu-
dents' lives in a positive way,"
Boucher said.
"A while back, one of my
students came up to me a few
days after my infamous
'Three Nasties of Smoking'
presentation and told me she
was so disgusted by what she
learned that she quit smoking
that same day. Better still, she
brought her class handouts

home and convinced her
older sister, who has an infant
daughter, to quit as well. It's
the kind of spark that keeps.
my enthusiasm in the class-
room burning bright."
Health and more
It's not just health Boucher'
is teaching. He works reading
instruction and math into
course work.
Take, for example, the "12
Troublesome FCAT Verbs"
initiative he and other teach-
ers are using to help children
on high-stakes tests. The ini-
tiative, in its second year at
VMS, pre-tests kids to see
where they are regarding their
knowledge of FCAT verbs.
Next, Boucher incorporates
the 12 verbs and their defini-
tions and' uses into daily
health lessons.
He also uses them in
',Amazing Health Jeopardy,",


an education game he de-
signed. Finally, he post-tests
to track student progress.
"We found from the data,"
said Boucher, "kids tend to
stumble on certain Verbs
used in FCAT questions. They
recognize words like 'sunmna-
rize,' 'analyze,' 'synthesize'
and 'predict,' but they don't
really know what it means or
how to use them. We try to
use multiple intellegences -
e.g., Howwould you draw the
word summarize? -to point
those out in lessons and help
students use them.
"It has been our experi-
ence that our strategies are
producing positive gains and
results," Boucher said.
Making it special
The special project is a key
weapon in Boucher's teach-
ing arsenal. In a project lie
calls "My Restaurant," Bouch-


er tells students he is the bank
and he has just lent them
money to open their own
restaurant. They do the re-
search, then design'a menu
that is both healthy and cost-
effective. They dive into it,
Boucher said.
."'Mr. Boucher makes it
fun," said seventh-grader
Cynthia Melendez. "He cracks
jokes all the time and relates
die stuff he teaches to his
family life growing up. That
makes it interesting."
Hunter Miller, another sev-
enth-grader in Boucher's
health class, likes the many
student projects, like making
"Smokin' is Jokin" posters and
brochures that describe the ill
effects of alcohol.
SWhile Boucher's health
class is required for all sixth-
graders, it's an elective for
seventh- and eighth-graders.

year all year long. He's awe-
some," Miller said.
Use your craniums
Boucher's teaching philBs-
ophy is "use your craniums!"
"I mention it all the time in
an attempt to get students'to
think and challenge themn-
selves," Boucher said. 'I
don't know' is not an answer
that I accept from my kids,
and they are aware of that
fact. I try to instill in them that
if they are going to be suc-
cessful in life, they need tobe
able to think and make gbod
choices in life. In other words,
use your craniums!"

ing experience in Florida;, 12

lades keep on coming. or

District seeks input for


Taylor Ranch principal


STAFF REPORT

Input will be gathered to
'lielp select a new principal at
a forum to be held at 7 p.m.
Tuesday, March 8, in the
Taylor Ranch Elementary
school cafeteria.
.Since January 2004 the
"principal of Taylor Ranch, Mr.
'Bob Earley, has served as the
associate superintendent of
business support services for
the Sarasota County School
District. At that time, the for-
mer assistant principal, Kelly

the acting principal. The
district must now select a
full-time principal for the


school.
Staff, parents and commu-
nity members are invited to
participate in the process that
will help determine the char-
acteristics desired for the
principal of Taylor Ranch
Elementary School.
The first step is to complete
a site analysis.
Patricia Lucas, director of
human resources, equity and
minority relations, will con-
duct the forum to gather in-
formation regarding the
unique educational and
management needs of Taylor
Ranch Elementary School.
Individuals unable to at-
tend the March 8 meeting


may submit a survey avail-
able in Taylor Ranch's main
office by March 4, to be re-
tiurned to the school no later
than March 8.
Information accumulated
from the meeting and survey
forms will be used in forming
a site analysis for the principal
selection process.
The position of Taylor
Ranch Elementary School
principal will be advertised
after the completion of the
site analysis.
The entire selection proc-
ess is scheduled to be com-
pleted before the end of this
school year, according to
district officials.

The Earned Income Tax
Credit is a refundable federal


income tax credit for low-
income working individuals
and families. Congress orig-
inally approved the legisla-
tion in 1975 in part to offset
the burden of social security
taxes and to provide an in-
centive to work. When the
EITC exceeds the amount of
taxes owed, it results in a tax
refund to those who claim
and qualify for the credit.
To qualify, taxpayers must
meet certain requirements
and file a fax return, even if
they did not earn enough
money to be obligated to file
a tax return.
Sarasota County govern-
ment created an EITC Task
Force to assist people be-

opportunity and to help eli-

Hospital CEO talks about



growth and relocation


HMA thinks it can make the hospital profitable
in its current location, and will be taking
a look at the need for services discontinued
by Bon Secours.


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


New Venice Regional Med-
ical Center CEO Melody
Trimble recently sat down
for an interview with Venice
Gondolier Sun Businews Col-
umnist Roger Button. Here's
some of their conversation:
Q.: How do you plan to grow?
A.: Although we are
licensed for 312 beds, many
have not been in use for a
variety of reasons with Bon
Secours management. Health
Management Associates
intends to use them diligently,
by renovating and opening
up more of those beds. Today
we have completed and
opened up 24 beds which
needed renovation to bring
them up to our standards,
creating a comfortable
atmosphere which is aestheti-
cally pleasing to the patient in
newly painted rooms.
Q.: How will you achieve prof-
itability?
A.: Overcoming the losses
of the past two years will be
a challenge, but we have a

and we want to ensure
patients get in in a timely
fashion, and then not hold
them in ER, but take them
to comfortable, renovated
rooms.
Q.: Will the heart program
continue?
A.: The signature heart
program, established in 2003,
is well regulated by premier,

Q.: Are obstetrics and psychi-
atry returning?
A.: Certainly we want to
look at the needsof the
community, but if we are to
consider obstetrics and
psychiatry we need the vol-
ume to support them. If there
are only 100 procedures it will
not open, but if we had 1,200
perhaps we would reopen
obstetrics. There are a variety
of programs we need to look
at in the community, rehabili-
tation, wound care, etc., but
we need the volume to sup-
port any program. I am meet-
ing community leaders, ser-
vice and community groups
and visiting schools to find
out what programs should be
brought to this area, and of
course the volume of need.

Q.: Will the hospital, be
moved?
A.: At this point we will be
very successful here on the
island. My team I have
brought in are all looking
to being involved in the
community, getting to know
the patients, medical teams,
employees and staff. It is now
my hospital. IMy family have
moved here. and my daughter
has begun attending school
in the city, so I am calling
Venice my home.

Residents want



red light legislation


,Sarasota County may pursue cameras on
county roads in spite of a lack of authority in
state law and the house speaker's opposition.


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR
While a powerful state leg-
islator claims the legislation
won't see the light of day, a
group of area residents is
highly interested in seeing
the measure pass.
Meanwhile, Sarasota Coun-
-ty plans to proceed on its
own with the installation of
cameras at intersections on
county roads to detect red
light runners.
I Last week, Florida House
::Speaker Allan Bense an-
nounced his
intention to
block any leg-
islation giving
counties the
authority to
install cam-
eras to detect
drivers who
run red lights.
Bense thinks Staub
local govern-
ments want the authority to
raise money from the fines
they could assess.
Sarasota County has taken
the lead in seeking the legis-
lation.
In January, commissioners
unanimously passed a reso-
lution calling on the state leg-
islature to adopt legislation
allowing local governments to
install the cameras, as many


other states have done.
Given the opposition at the
state level, county commis-
sioner Shannon Staub told the
members of the Southwest
County Alliance of Home-
owners Associations Thurs-
day that the
county may
proceed with
the installa-
tion on its
own roads.
State
statutes do
not give coun- y
ties the
authority to Patterson
install the
cameras at any intersection
with a state highway. But,
Staub said, the county could
put the cameras on the roads
it controls that have high
crash rates.
Specific plans for the pro-
ject have not yet come to the
county commission.
"It's a matter of safety, not
revenue," Staub said. "We
never considered the dollars.
It's always been a safety issue
for us."
Get a lobbyist
Despite Bense's opposition,
Rep. Ronald Reagan, R-Sara-
sota, and Sen. Steve Wise, R-
Jacksonville, plan to intro-
duce the legislation on behalf
of the counties. ,


Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson told the Alliance mem-
bers that Rep. Nancy Detert,
R-Venice, views the idea as a
money-making endeavor by
the counties, but might
change her mind if the fines
were used to fund programs
like Healthy Kids or affordable
housing.
Patterson urged the mem-
bers to write or call Detert to
express their interest in seeing
the legislation passed.
"If they start hearing from
you, then they know that it's
not a revenue thing with you,"
Staub added.
"You need a lobbyist," sug-
gested Alliance member
David Leigh. "You need to get
the insurance lobby on your
side."
"It's a doggone good idea,
but call it traffic light run-
ning," added member Tom
Swepston. "Red light has a
bad connotation."
Typically, the cameras op-
erate through a sensor in-
stalled at the beginning of the
intersection. When the light
turns red, the sensor is acti-
vated and the camera takes a
photo usually of the license
plate of any vehicle that
trips the sensor.
The offending driver later
receives a citation in the mail,
which in Florida can cost a
minimum of $65, and can run
more if a county has enacted
a state-permitted surcharge.

"There has to be a shift in
the paradigm for everyone
driving in cars," added Sara-
sota City Commissioner Lou
Anne Palmer. "We need to
look at other ways of moving
people from one place to
another."
The high-growth projec-
tions in South County had
forced the Renaissance plan-
ners to add Toledo Blade
Boulevard and Laurel Road as
major traffic corridors to the
study. River Road and Venice
Avenue had previously been
the only two routes consid-
ered as major corridors in
South County.
Blanton said he didn't see
the MPO taking on a land-
planning role, but the organi-
zation needed to be aware of
and consider the land-use
policies of local governments.
Created by federal and
state law, the MPO is a region-
al transportation planning
agency, composed of county
commissioners and elected
city officials in both counties,
to consider regional trans-
portation needs and priorities.
The plan under develop-
ment by Renaissance will
determine the current and
future transportation needs
and lay out strategies for
operating, maintaining and
,financing that system through
the two counties.
Blanton said the group
plans to have scenarios and
alternatives ready for public
workshops in early May.

Capital comments: Who's your legislator?


People know it's the senators and representatives
that get things done but don't know who they are.


BY JERRY WOELFEL
CORRESPONDENT

The political train left Sara-
sota and will pull into Talla-
hassee next Tuesday. How
many of our South County
people had a ticket? Not
many,- according to my very
informal survey.
I was interested in seeing
what issues were important
and what action or involve-
ment the people of South
County have with their elect-
ed government officials.
The issues were easy to
identify everyone I asked
had at least three they could
list in a very short time frame.
Health care, transportation
needs and education were the
three most readily mention-
ed. Social Security and taxes
were the issues next in line.
What action the people had,
taken to discuss; or pursue
these issues with their leg-
islative delegation members or
local elected officials was a dif-
ferent story altogether.
Of the 465 people I inter-
faced with in the last three:
weeks or so mostly at gath-
erings I was attending or by
phone to some people in par-


CVS fails fire inspection
The Venice CVS store, 100
North U.S. 41 Bypass, was hit
with seven fire code viola-
tions and has been given 30
days to make corrections. The
store risks fines or closing if
the owners fail to comply.
City fire inspectors cited
the convenience store for
blocking its rear fire exit, hav-
ing an cluttered storage area,
storing materials too close to
the electrical breaker area,
too small of road address
numbers, fire extinguishers
need serviced and mounted,
unsecured cylinders and an
alarm system that needed
servicing.
A year ago, fire officials
started doing regular inspec-
tions for the first time since
1998 after the city manager
resumed the program, which
is required by state regula-
tions. Thirty out of 50 restau-
rants were cited with multiple
violations, but no business
was shut' down or fined
because they came into com-
pliance. :
Fire inspectors started,with
facilities in, which people
sleep, like hotels, motels,
apartment buildings and
condominiums, then han- "
dled restaurants and down-
town businesses last fall.
There are more than 1,500
existing structures that must.
be inspected in Venice, and
the goal is to get through
them all by the end of 2005.


ticular that I thought were
community leaders and would
be involved already less
than 5 percent told me they
had spoken to their state repre-
sentatives or local officials, and
less than 1 percent could list
many of the local state delega-
tion members who represent
Sarasota County.
It seemed to be an interest-
ing set of numbers because
many ofthe individuals could
relate a good deal of informa-
tion on the topics they identi-
fied but seemed to have no
idea as to whom to talk to or
what the process is to get
their concerns addressed or
acted upon.
Most of the individuals
were somewhat stymied
when asked if their state rep-
resentatives or their national
representatives were the ap-
propriate people to address
their concerns to relating to
the issues identified. The ma-
jority felt that their concerns
could indeed be addressed by
the state officials but then
could not identify who those
officials would be.'

junky for some 25 years now, I

EPA-approved
releases
By all accounts, next
Tuesday there will be a
"shade" meeting for Venice
Civt Council to consider the
proposed settlement of the
criminal investigation by U.S.
District Attorneys and
Environmental Protection
Agency investigators. There
will be no vote by members
Tuesday, who will ponder the
agreement and wait for pub-
lic reaction to the proposal
before voting at the next
council meeting.
Words are being chosen
carefully by city staff and
council members. City
Manager Marty Black has
even submitted draft press
releases to prosecutors for
approval, not wanting'to risk
derailing of the settlement.
"It's that significant of an
issue for them and us to make
sure we're on the same page,
even with (press releases),"
Black said.
The investigation into
improper handling of
untreated and treated waste-
water dates back three years.
Venice settled with Florida
Department of
Environmental Protection
last year, but that was a civil
lawsuit by DEP, unlike the
EPA's criminal investigation.

to figure out the system, but it
is a simple matter to find out
who is involved with the sys-
tem and which of the local of-
ficials county, state and na-
tional are always very ac-
cessible to their constituents.
With the state legislative
session starting Tuesday,
March 8, it is always interest-
ing to me to listen to people
express their concerns and
yet never bother to find out
how to interact with the Legi-
slature. And even more inter-
esting to see that some of
those same individuals were
smart enough to ask their
state delegation members to
sponsor "community budget
requests/member projects"
for inclusion in the states
budget but then did not fol-
low up on them.
Also, it seems strange for
one member of our delega-
tion to co-sponsor a number
of budget requests, which
then put them in jeopardy of
being thrown out because of
duplication or confusion. It's
something that never should
be done and is always "coor-
dinated" by the delegation
chair beforehand.
This year we may see some
of our community projects
being, rejected simply be-
cause one member wanted
credit. What a shame it would


conduct regular business.
Sharky's lease extended
Sharky's on the Pier has
been granted a five-year ex-
tension on its lease with the
city of Venice.. The original
agreement from 1986 allowed
this option, meaning the res-
taurant next to Venice Muni-
cipal Fishing Pier will keep
operating under the existing
terms until Jan. 19, 2011.
The contract would have
expired next .year. Another
five-year option can be grant-
ed if owners, Pier Group Inc.,
make the request extending
the existing contract until
2016.
About a third of the rent


be to jeopardize the commu-
nity's requests because of
posturing for re-election.
Our community needs to
come together to learn the
process: how to work through
and with the system and to
learn how our elected officials
can best represent us and act
upon the interests of 'this
community.
I hope the articles that come
out during this 2005 legislative
session will help educate and
inform us all so that next ses-
sion we can all participate -
starting with the committee
meetings that usually begin six
months prior, which would
mean that the community is


engaged with dialog and input
in September prior to the regu-
lar 60-day 2006 session, which.
will be convened in March of
next year.

Rent is based on a percent-

2003, the restaurant grossed
$5.1 million meaning it paid
more than $250,000 in rent

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 someinventory
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 handler's 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 wi
come out and measure your home (an
determine the availability of the proper size
Don't forget, I only have 56 matched system
in four sizes. When they are gone, th
remarkable offer ends also. I will show you ti
real world price on the air conditioner that fi
your home, then, I will show you' tl
substantial savings now. It will include a
labor and installation materials. Nothing
left out.
The Concept Is
Simply Really
By letting you win big now, I will win at tl
end of the year. I'm betting that if I make ye
an offer that is "irresistible" (at least it shou]
be if your air conditioner is over eight year
old) and I barely made it up above the price
paid, I will accomplish two things:
1. I will cover my rent, utilities, insurance an
taxes in the Killer months.
2. I can pay my professional staff of 4
technicians to work instead of paying them
sit at home. If I can accomplish these t~
objectives, I will minimize my losses and th
,rest of the year, I can be a winner.
No Obligation
Even after I completely explain th
installation, there is absolutely no obligation
If you decide you don't want to tak
advantage of the spectacular savings...that
okay. I will give you a surprise gift becau:
you are kind enough to read this letter an
give me a chance to solve my problem. I wai
you to think well of Anderson even if you don
buy
You Can Buy
With NO Cash
You don't even have to pay me right away.
have set up a terrific financing plan. I eve
decided not to mark up the interest rate lik
some companies do. Consider this. If yo
decide to make monthly investments instead
paying cash, the entire amount of yom
payments might be more than offset by th
savings on your utility bills. It's like having
your cake and eating it too."
__^urn'^^^K_


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

AUDIT from page 1A
Investor Services Aa2.
- "It gave the district a better
isk rating than any other in
fjorida," Monson said. "That,
ini itself, was a crowning
achievement."
Award entry
SIn addition to the clean
audit, the district took part in
the .first ever Comprehensive
Annual Financial Report.
- Administrators are enter-
ing-the CAFR audit, which
goes beyond minimum re-
porting requirements, into
a statewide awards pro-
gram.
CAFR is a best-practices
financial management review
of a governmental entity and
is done in conjunction with
the annual fiscal audits.
In addition to scrutiny at
thelocal and state level, CAFR


determines whether a school
board has been fiscally re-
sponsible for expending fed-
eral monies.
It has been submitted to
both the Association of
School Business Officials and
the Government Finance
Officers Association for their
respective reviews.
Only about 40 percent of
CAFRs are accepted for
recognition in the first year
of submission, said Mon-
son, however, the district is
optimistic.
Actual notification of
the results of the review
will be announced this
summer.
Fourteen school districts in
Florida have received CAFR
awards.

CAUGHT from page 1A

with angled parking instead
of the existing parallel park-
ing.
Another parking idea is to
build a three-story garage on
the city lot next to Althea's
restaurant. The- 140-spot
garage would yield a net gain
of 93 new parking spaces.
None of the project choic-
es had price tags, which frus-
trated some of those in atten-
dance. Consultants explained
cost projections would be
drawn up based on what citi-
zens say they want.
"What we're talking about
tonight is spending a lot of
money in the downtown,"
said Sharon Eichler, Wade-
Trim consultant, to the
crowd. "We would like to
know.your opinions."
Other topics on the survey
involve types of downtown
benches, landscaping, im-
proved crosswalks and alter-
ations to the Harbor Road


DOWNTOWN CHOICES
A public meeting to gather resident opinions on downtown
improvements was held Wednesday. Surveys can still be complet-
ed by going online to venicegov.com.
Here's a sampling of the questions asked:
* Traffic patterns Keep Miami, Tampa and Venice avenues as is,
or convert them to one lane in each direction to gain 51 total
parking spots?
* Harbor Drive and Venice Avenue Leave the intersection as is,
install a roundabout to remove the light or select one of six other
options, all involving new lights and crosswalks. (Estimated costs
for the final six options are between $35,000 and 5179,000.)
* Parking garage Should the city construct one at the public lot
Next to Althea's restaurant? This would create 140 spots for a net
gain of 93 spaces.
* Crosswalks Should the city go with concrete paver sidewalks
or textured asphalt? Concrete pavers are individual bricks and cost
twice as much as textured asphalt.


and Venice Avenue intersec-
tion.
Not too late
Surveys must be submit-
ted by March 18 in order to be
part of Wade-Trim's report.
Eichler expects to have the
findings ready for city council


inApril.
Blank copies of the survey
are to be posted on the city's
Web site, venicegov.com, so
part-time residents or others
who missed the meeting can
still voice an opinion. City staff
were trying to load Wade-
Trim's presentation, also, but


as of Thursday the infor-
mation had not been posted.
"So if you've got friends or
relatives who could not make
the meeting, be sure and let
them know it's all there," said
Public Words Director Larry
Heath, who is in charge of the
downtown project.
Projects selected by the
public and then council will
not be launched all at once,
especially if big-ticket items
like a parking garage or alter-
ing traffic patterns are select-
ed, explained Pam Johnson.
The master plan would estab-
lish timelines over the next
five to 10 years for comple-
tion of these jobs, based on
available money.

Why now?
: Residents seemed to un-
derstand the backflow de-
vice's purpose to prevent
water in someone's home or
business from getting sucked
back into the public, water
lines.
.They questioned why
every home must have one,
and why Venice residents are
being required to get one
seemingly all of a sudden.
"Why haven't I seen it all
around the state?" one audi-
ence member asked. "Is it just
here in Venice or every-
where?"
Every municipality is re-
quired to implement its own
program to comply with the
state law, which is derived
frim the federal Environ-
mental Protection Agency
Safe Drinking Water Act of
1974. Sarasota County Health
Department is responsible for
making sure all public drink-
ing water systems comply,
explained Rob Bolesta of the
-health department.
;-Language was changed
last year to prevent a legal
0nophole allowing municipal-
ities not to actually imple-
iAent a water protection plan,
-iolesta said to the audience.
"Times have changed, it
-efltes to terrorist attacks, but
I don't want to get into that,"
aid' Bolesta, which drew dis-
.atisfied rumblings from the
erowd.
Venice's plan
-The protection plan itself is
developed by the individual
water system, in this case
Venice, and the county health
department simply monitors
and approves it. Even though
-every county system must
have a backflow plan in place,
only Siesta Key's drinking
water system has one as strict


as what Venice is attempting
to implement, according to
county health officials.
Before Venice launched its
new plan, only water cus-
tomers with a secondary
water source were required to
have backflow prevention
devices. This included places
that accepted reclaimed
water, had a well or pond, or
were an industrial business.
That policy is out of com-
pliance with state regulations,
which requires every water
customer to have some type
of backflow system.
There are three common
- types of backflow prevention
devices dual-valve, dou-
ble-valve and the RPZ. Many
older homes with a backflow
device have one of the first
two, and will have to switch
over to the above-ground RPZ
model by 2010.
RPZ is the most reliable
device, and it allows the city
to avoid hiring staff to double
check the devices. Utilities
Manager Chris Sharek esti-
mated it would cost Venice at
least $500,000 over the next
five years to test either of the
first two choices, but the cur-
rent plan is to leavethat up to
individual residents.
Sharek also said the city
cannot do any work between
the water meter and the resi-
dence because that is consid-
ered private property.
"We're trying to prevent
that siphoning-effect from
your home from getting into
the public drinking water,"
Sharek said. "That can hap-
pen any time we have a water
main break. ... Otherwise,
you could contaminate your
neighbor's water or anyone
else's."

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

through May 27. Exhibit
hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.,

Lady Indians outlast Haines City


CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Separate

publics

from

privates


The folks at the Florida
High School Athletic Associ-
ation probably don't care how
they do things up north, but
there is an area that needs to
be addressed as far as classi-
fications go for its sports play-
off system.
Counting up the "Final 4
schools" in the six classes at
the girls basketball finals,
nine of the 24 are private
schools.
The private schools pretty
much dominate the smaller
three classes 3A, 2A and IA.
Here's the deal.
Private schools can play by
different rules. Most have big
money behind them. This
allows them to present offers
to gifted athletes that are
hard to say no to.
Or in simpler terms -
recruiting.
This is unfair to the smaller
public schools, who can only
use those who live in town.
Some of these private
schools pop up and are a
power overnight.
Look at something called
Orlando Christian Prep,
which is just in its third year
of playing girls hoops. The.
Lady Warriors are in the state
finals for the second year in
a row. They just hammered
Bradenton Christian to get to
the championship.
Orlando Christian beat
Haines City by 35 points dur-
ing the regular season. Heck,
Venice only shaded the Lady
Hornets by three points.
New Jersey is the state I
grew up in. While Jersey.
needs lots of help, at least the
high school sports governing
body -. the NJSIAA had
the sense to separate private
and parochial schools from
the public schools when it
came to state playoffs.
Each had their own sepa-
rate title to play for. The pri-
vates would play the privates
and the publics against the'
publics.
Privates playing publics
may be great for regular sea-
son, but not for post-season.
-The FHSAA should follow
suit.


Heading up 1-75 to 1-4 for
state events in Lakeland sev-
eral times the past couple of
weeks, you see some real
beauties.
One would be the night
closing of the ramp from 1-4
to 1-75.
While I suppose it's nec-
essary, the detour signs are
totally inadequate. Have a
clue DOT.
Also, once you get to 75,
traffic comes to a standstill
shortly afterward as three of
the four lanes are closed for
repaying. It took 45 minutes
to go a mile at 10 pm. Wed-
nesday. How about working
on two lanes at a time?


Earlier Wednesday, we got
a chance to visit Joker
Marchant Stadium and see
the Tigers take on Florida
Southern College. Florida
Southern scored two runs in
the top of the ninth inmiings
to salvage a 2-2 tie with
Detroit.
The Moccasins entered
the exhibition with a record of


16-0.


Venice hoopsters capture state semifinal
and will play Friday for a first-ever
Class 5A championship.

Haines City High girls
basketball coach Ladreda
Akins thought that her girls
underestimated Venice. Ven-
ice coach Joe DiGiacomo
thought his girls underesti-
mated Haines City.
Which made for a mighty
interesting FHSAA Class 5A
semifinal Wednesday night
at The Lakeland Center.
In an emotional, adrena-
line-packed game that fea-
tured a series of runs by both
teams along with flurries of
turnovers, the Lady Indians
prevailed, 51-48.
The victory puts Venice
(25-6) in Friday night's state
championship game against


Dillard (29-1), one of the top
schools in the Southeast.
Haines City saw its spirited
run end with the loss. The
Lady Hornets, the Region 2
champion, finish with a
record of 23-6.
This will be the first time
in school history that Venice
has played in a state title
game in girls basketball.
"I think we underestimat-
ed their girls," said Akins, a
former Florida Southern Col-
lege standout who is in her
sixth year of coaching at
Haines City. "They're not big.
A lot of our girls underesti-

mated them. We're usually
a running team, but they
slowed it down. They pulled it
off."
DiGiacomo thought


Venice High's Sam Sharp-King begins celebrating
during the final minute of action as a dejected
Lajerricka Twillie of Haines City passes the Venice
Bench during a stoppage in play.


Haines City was tough
than he expected.
S"They underestimate
us?" said DiGiacomo, who

We were uncharachterist
When you play a big gan
like this in a place like th
the rim gets smaller, ti
court looks bigger, there's
hollow floor. I 'thought \
were both sloppy."
Haines City was more,
the Lady Hornets turned tt
ball over twice as mar
times as Venice, (32-16).
Venice senior center Li
Hough played a huge role
the win, canning clutch sho
jumpers throughout the se
6nd half to keep the Lac
Indians heads above water.
Hough, who is -signed

Natalie Gaudreau also play-
ed a huge role in the win.
She canned 15 points and
connected on a few second
quarter baskets to prevent
Haines City from piling up a
big lead at the half.
As it turned out, three
baskets by Gaudreau along
with 3-point bombs by Dana
Nostin and Jessica Enander
helped the Lady Indians to a
28-25 edge after the first 16
minutes.
It could have been a lot
worse.
Haines City scored 15
straight points spanning late
in the first quarter through
early in the second to turn
an. 11-5 deficit to ,a 20-11
advantage.
A couple of more Lady
Hornet baskets would 'have
made the uphill struggle all
the more difficult.
Thanks to Gaudreau, Nos-,
tin and Enander, the deficit
was wiped out in a hurry.
Gaudreau started the Lady
Indian run with a steal, layup
and free throw after being
fouled on the play. Enander
then hit a three to make it


20-17. Gaudreau then-dialed
in twice from long distance
to give Venice its first lead
since the first quarter. Hough

The dream is still alive


Lady Indians must face

highly touted Dillard in title clash.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Like fine wine, the Venice
High girls basketball team
has gotten better with age.
Early in the season, the
Lady Indians had gained the
reputation of being a very
good team that had trouble
knocking off other ranked,
teams.
Venice lost big to schools
like Clearwater, Southeast,
Riverview and Barron Collier.
But in the post-season, the
Lady Indians have proved
they are not just as good, but
better than the rest.
They have been impres-
sive in knocking off Fort
Myers, Clearwater and Largo
in the Region 3, Tournament
and now Haines City in the
state semifinal.

Everyone has stepped up
their games.
The Lady Indians will have
to step it up one more time,
and it will take a giant step at
that.
Venice will certainly need
to be clicking on all cylinders
to have a chance of knock-
ing off Fort Lauderdale-
Dillard in Friday night's Class
5A championship game at
The Lakeland Center.
Dillard, the defending 5A
State Champion, is ranked
No. 9 in the South Region by
the USA Today.
Dillard (29-1) waltzed into


the final with a 66-50 victory
over Bartram Trail in Wed-
riesday night's late game.
The Lady Panthers used
their quickness and strong
outside shooting to build. a
19-2 first quarter lead and
stayed comfortably ahead
throughout.
Dillard's lone loss was to
Class 6A semifinalist Deer-
field Beach. The Panthers
split with Deerfield this sea-
son.
The Panthers feature one
of the top players in the
nation in 5-8 guard Erica
Brown, who .was a pre-
season 'Super 25 selection by
USA Today and a McDonald's
All-American.
Brown can do it all-
shoot, drive, dish and re-
bound.
She had 13 points, four
rebounds and seven assists
against Bartram Trail. An-
other guard Brittany Mc-
Graw- also had 13 points.
Haines City coach La-
Dreda Akins gives Dillard
,the edge in Friday's final.
"Dillard has been there
before," she said. "They're a
disciplined team. Venice is
disciplined, too. Their assis-
tant coaches (Cayll Smith
and Gary Halbert) are good.
They'll come up with some-
thing."
Head coach Joe DiGia-
como orchestrates the effort.
"What do you want me to


say? They're ninth in the
country," he said. "I've seen
them five times on tape."
Venice has been peaking
at the right time. The Lady
Indians lost by 22 points to
Barron Collier in their final
regular season game. Since
then, they have won six
straight including a confi-
dence-boosting verdict over

'Hits were far and few be-
tween for the Port Charlotte
High baseball team as the
Pirates fell to visiting Venice
12-0 in a cold Class 5A-Dis-
:-trict 11 contest Thursday
4:.ernoon.
Venice (1-3 overall and 1-0
:i district play) scored nine
gains in the top of the seventh
'tJ turn the game into a rout.
Nlatt Kindall led a 12-hit
Indian attack with four hits
and four RBI. Jeremie Cook, a
state champion wrestler,
added two hits and two RBI.
Port Charlotte (1-3 overall
and 0-1 in district action)
was held to just three hits.
"I was very pleased with
our offense," Venice coach
Craig Faulkner said. "Matt
had a great game and Jeremie
did a good job after just
coming out from wrestling."
Both teams had to with-


stand cold weather and a bit-
ing wind that had most of
the spectators wearing jack-
ets and sweaters.
The Indians scored single
runs in the top of the first
inning, third and sixth before
their big seventh inning. Cook
scored the first run on a
double, stolen base and an
error.
Port Charlotte had a bunt
single by Dani Toledo in the
third inning, a single by Jon
Velez in the fourth and a lead-
off double by Max Keleher in
the sixth inning. Keleher ad-
vanced to third base on a
ground ball out but was
stranded there.
Greg Koehler started on
the mound for Venice and
pitched 1 2/3 innings before
being taken out of the game.
Joel Schmehi and Kyle Skog
followed Koehler on the
mound.
"Greg walked a couple of
batters in both the first and


second inning," Faulkner
said. "He's done a good job
for us but today he just didn't
have it."
Keleher pitched 6-1/3 inn-
ings for the Pirates and took
the defeat. Eric Stielberger
and Derek Burbidge finished
up the game for Port Char-
lotte.
"We had our chances but
just didn't hit the ball," said
Port Charlotte coach Bob
Bruglio. "Max did a great job
pitching today."
Venice will play visiting
North Port at 7 p.m. Friday.

Former coundIl member honored by Rotary


Bud Miller, who has perfect attendance at Rotary
meetings for nearly half his life, was recognized
for living the club's mission of service.


BY ROGER BUTTON
CORRESPONDENT

Before a record turnout at
the Venice Nokomis Rofary
Club meeting, President John
Ryan announced, "On behalf
of the club I have the honor to
present this plaque, which
says, 'VL. Bud Miller Ser-
vice to mankind is the motto
of Rotary and of Bud Miller. In
addition to 44 years of perfect
attendance, Bud Miller has


served this community as a
member of Venice City Coun-
cil, as president of Venice Ho-
spital Volunteers and in his
church work. This day is set
aside to honor this distin-
guished Rotarian, V.L. Bud
Miller, signed John Ryan,
President, Feb. 24, 2005."
Rotarian Dick Dodderidge
recalled how the previous day
the club had marked Rotary
International's centenary and
the next day was honoring its


oldest member, who has a
perfect attendance record for
almost half that century -44
years. Miller joined Rotary in
Pennsylvania in 1947. Retir-
ing in 1979, he moved to Ven-
ice, immediately joining Ven-
ice Nokomis Rotary Club,
where he has been a stalwart
ever since.
Mayor Dean Calamaras re-
called Miller being elected to
Venice City Council in 1987
and said his three years where
some of the most productive
city council has ever seen. He
noted they are often referred
to as the golden age or renais-
sance of Venice.


Miller also had the distinc-
tion of raising the average age
of the council by about 10
years, said Calamaras, who
expressed thanks to Miller on
behalf of the city for all he did
and has since done. The may-
or presented Miller with pho-
tographs taken when Miller
was first elected to city hall.
Rotarian Jack Ogle recalled
when Miller joined the volun-
teers at Venice Hospital in
1980. Miller was president of
the volunteers in 1992-3 and
became a life member, and
his late wife, MaryAnn, was
also a volunteer. In apprecia-
tion Ogle presented a framed

Rotarian Bill Boyer, pastor
of Grace United Methodist
Church, said he was pleased
to say a few good words for
"bulldog" Miller the excellent
lobbyist, who joined the
church in 1979 and served in
a variety of positions, elected
and as a volunteer.

Surprised
Rotarian Jeff Boone said,
"Today we recognize all the
good things Miller has done
for our community and the
contributions he has made. I
can honestly say from my
heart that I know of no one in
my experience who has done
more for Venice as far as just
giving of his time and his
efforts.
"His many great ideas for
which he has never taken cre-
dit have fostered themselves
into some of the things which
have contributed to make
Venice the community it is,"
Boone added.
Rotarian Mike Miller recal-
led how 18 years ago Miller
sponsored him to join Rotary.


"When I think of Rotary I
think of Bud Miller," said
Mike Miller (no relation). "He
believes in service above self,
and as we all know that belief
has kept Rotary in business
over 100 years.
"The true act of a gift for
dthe benefit of the gift is the
ability to give, and he is the
perfect example trough his
involvement in Rotary and
his life. I have to thank him for
his contribution to me and
my family.
"On behalf of my vife,
family, our entire company
and my business, I would like
to honor him by donating
$10,000 to Rotary and Bud
Miller, to be used however he
would like it. We certainly
appreciate him."
Responding very emotion-
ally Niller said, "I'm really just
surprised, and I'm not going
to say very much I can't. It
was a big surprise when I wal-
ked in today and saw that big
delegation, my daughter, son
and all his crew, it was too
much for me. Seeing all ofyolu
my friends, I thank you very
much.'"

OUR VIEW


Now is the time to update, validate hurricane insurance


W e hate to be the bearer of bad news,
but in less than four months, hurri-
cane season will be upon us once
again. Are you ready?
Insurance and sometimes the lack of it
has been thrown into the spotlight since
4ug. 13, when Hurricane Charley visited our
.area.
Three subsequent hurricanes last year
.made Florida the epicenter of insurance con-
Stroversy.
From the homeowner who complains his
settlement will not cover the.cost of repairs,
to the insurance industry lobbyist who is un-
happy with the amount of deductible credit-
ed to the insurance industry from a state


recovery fund pool, everyone seems to have a
question or comment about insurance.
Perhaps the most important question,
however, is whether homeowners are ready
for 2005. Hurricane season does start June 1.
Insurance industry representatives say
now is the time for homeowners to look over
their policies and investigate if theyhave ade-
quate coverage in case, heaven forbid, we
have another hurricane visit this year.
Here's what you should do:
If you're renting,, consider renter's insur-
ance. It can be as cheap as $10-$12 a month
and cover clothes, furniture, and other valu-
able items.
Sit down with an insurance agent and


determine if your policy covers actual cost
replacement or the value of the home. Actual
cost replacement insurance can cover the
expense of replacing your home at market
prices. If your policy covers the value of your
home and values are rising every day'-
you could leave yourself short when trying to
rebuild a home.
Check to see if you have flood insurance.
Some mortgage companies require it in a
flood zone, but many claims are made out-
side the flood zone.
Above all, make sure your home is
insured for the right amount. An insurance
policy taken out two years ago would surely
need to be updated as the market value has


climbed dramatically in the past few months.
It is easy to paint insurance agents in black
hats, and there are homeowners who have
their own horror stories to tell of agents who -
won't return phone calls or insist their esti-
mates which may be thousands of dollars
short of costs are fair.
Those kinds of stories are few although
they, as a squeaky wheel, may get the most
attention. Insurance representatives make
the point to remind homeowners that a claim
is never closed. Cashing the check, starting
the work nothing closes a claim as long as
the insured is unhappy.
But the happiest customer is usually one
who carries the proper insurance.


Part two: Passive or


active beach park?


S, "' t- "




LORRAINE COCCARO


After the possible $622,735
saving explained in last
week's column, what is left?
Parking. That is a big ques-
tion the number of spaces
as well as the kind of surface.
Along South Harbor Drive
there are many parking areas.
Driving from the north there
is Service Club Park with 22
marked spaces and the possi-
bility ouf25 iumore o the grass.
At the pier and Sharky's there
were 109 cars parked around
lunchtline one day this week
and the parking area was
barely half full. I was told the
city will be paving 100 spaces
for the pier. More than 200
cars can park in this area.
Next, the 255 spaces plan-
ned for the no- name new.
park. Paw Park has 11 paved
spaces. Brohard Park has 134
spaces, some paved, some
not. There are 10 spaces far-,
ther on, tip against the dunes.
The county at Caspersen
Beach has three handicap
spaces up against the dunes,
77 in the parking lot and
another 29 at the very end of
the road. At the Caspersen
picnic area there are 51 more.
None is paved.
So, we have 560 spaces
now and 255 more planned.
Will 815 spaces be enough?
Not if everyone out there
wants to swim, sun them-
selves or watch the sun fall
into the gulf at the same time.
New developments sur-
rounding Venice are popping
up all the time, which makes
for even more people wanting
to use our facilities. The Neal
Communities development
that borders Jacaranda Boul-
evard and Center Road calls
for 579 single-family homes
and 911 condos and apart-
ments.
Then there is Thomas (for-
merly Taylor) Ranch. County
commissioner David Mills
was quoted as saying, "I get a
little nervous when I think
: about 12,000 homes in the
: Taylor Ranch. I can't imagine.
what that's going to do."
I can. Many will drive over
: to use our beaches.
Planning commission
: chair John Osmulski put an-
other spin on the question:
"' Building the parking will
never be as cheap and as


doable as it is now."
He explained the reason:
All this has to be approved by
the Department of the En-
vironmental Protection and
that will only become more
difficult in the future.
I cannot foretell what our
future needs will be, but the
city should be able to discover
if we truly need more parking.
A trip to the beach at noon
and at sunset for a couple of
weeks at the height of the sea-
son to cotint the empty
spaces should give a pretty,
accurate picture of the need,
if any.
But why paved parking?
Macadam is hot and the rain
just runs off, adding pollution
from the macadam instead of
naturally filtering into the
sand. Pavement also takes
away from the natural look. I
was surprised how much the
sand parking lot and entrance
at Sharky's added to the at-
mosphere of the restaurant.
Service Club Park is not all
paved. Parking at the South
lern is not paved. The county
did not pave Caspersen. I see
no really good reason to pave
these spaces either.
What would paved parking
for 255 cars cost us? The price
of the parking does include
access driveways to the pavil-
ions in order to drop off pas-
sengers and picnic supplies.
This parking is also close to
the Paw Park, where more
parking is needed from time
to time.
It would cost $332,640 plus,
$116,424 for "mobilization,
contractor and construction
contingency fees" for a total,
of $449,064. Each space
comes to $1,76.
Remember the Loufek
property near the beach at
the end of West Venice Ave-
nue that the city bought to
add 53-67 spaces? Each space
cost $14,925 to $18,868, de-
pending on the final number.
Since we have so many
spaces at the southern part of
the beach and probably can't
keep up with the far future's
demand for parking any way
we try,. perhaps we could sell
the Loufek, property for a
profit.
Am I being facetious? Per-
haps. A bit.
All in all we have to balance
perceived need with reality.
We can't possibly have park-
ing for everyone. How far we
go is the question. .
Next week the rest of the
$2,666,540 outlay and the sur-
prising statement about the
park at the town hall meeting.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS

Republicans still following Lincoln's lessons


Editor: ,
Lorraine Coccaro quotes Lincoln: "I go for all sharing the
privileges of government who assist in sharing its burdens,"
adding that Lincoln identified with the worker.
Lincoln's esteem for the individual worker is best demon-
strated by statements such as:
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage
payer.
Recall that our original Constitution prevented taxation of
individuals. However, Amendment XVI, passed in 1913, allow-
ed Congress to tax incomes, from whatever source derived.
Do you realize that one-eighth of your wages (including
your employer's match) is paid into Social Security? Did you
ever ask if that is a good investment?
Coccaro should think about how to protect the worker from
the government. Government taxes labor, seizing up to 48 per-
cent of its value between income taxes on wages and Social
Security taxes. Estate taxes then seize accumulated capital, the
fruit of labor.
Lincoln, the first Republican president, emancipated blacks
from the oppression of slavery. President Bush has reduced the
burden of high taxes on wages of American workers.
Coccaro falsely claims, "Sadly, the Republican Party and the
culture of the United States have veered from Lincoln's view.
We glorify capital, we discount labor."
What Coccaro says may be true for Democratic party cul-
ture, but Republicans, the party of Lincoln, still value labor and
the individual worker.

He missed the point
Editor:
Bruce Harpster's "No need
for more things at the beach"
response to my suggestions
missed the point entirely. The
Venice beach needs to be
more open and inviting to
younger generations.
Rather than indulge one-
self in a negative, knee-jerk
reaction, a much too often
occurrence to a proposal to
change the status quo, Mr.
Harpster could have modified
or improved on what was
suggested.
I addressed the sensitive
environmental issues we are
all concerned about. I did not
propose the creation of
another Atlantic City and to
suggest so was disingenuous.


I suppose I should be
grateful Mr. Harpster didn't
oppose cleaning up the bird
droppings on the new pier. I
wonder how he would have
reacted if I proposed chang-
ing the city's slogan to "The
City of the Living Dead."

Budget difficult
pill to swallow

Editor:
The president's budget
calling for big cuts is mislead-
ing: It implies that we will be
spending a lot less next year
than we are this year. No,
spending is not being cut.'
Previously hoped-for increas-


es are being cut, and some
hard choices will need to be
made.
The 2006 budget repre-
sents a 3.6-percent increase
in spending over 2003 esti-
mates, which is about what
inflation was. It will be the,
first time in recent history
that spending only increases
as much as inflation. That
means the federal govern-
ment will have to make the
same choices workers make
when they get a raise that
only keeps up with inflation.
What is disturbing the fed-
eral budget of about $2.6 tril-
lion is fiscally too big -I find
this a difficult pill to swallow.
The record high import in
2004 was $617.70 'billion and
the national debt, $1.2 trillion
and growing. We are already
racking up this substantial
debt for our children and
grandchildren. My hopes
must burn bright for my chil-
dren and yours to become
wealthy through their own
ingenuity and hard work.
We should consider chil-
dren's future with morals and
courage, and government -
Congress should be fiscally
responsible in fixing fiscal
problems in Washington now.

Stop walling
in the city
Editor:
We have 150 home owners
in Harbor Lights Marina at
the Hatchet Creek Bridge, and
most are against the "walled
city" being created along the
Intracoastal Waterway by the
developers of high-rise con-
dos.
We believe in Venetian arc-
hitecture just look at how
many tourists travel to Italy to
see "Old" Venice. We did


about five years ago and loved
it, even during the rain, with
boots and rain coats and
backpacks.
But what is happening to
Florida's Venice is more like
Ocean City, Md., or Fort Lau-
derdale, with concrete-can-
yon-like streets, where all the
eye can see is pre-stressed
concrete and post-stressed
inhabitants. Soon, Tamiami
Trail will become Tsunami
Trail, with an 'epicenter of
Wal-Nlart-like super centers.
I know that once, long ago,
some sage philosopher said
"nothing is constant but
change," but I say, let's exer-
cise some controlled change.

Land trust could
help with housing
Editor:
North Port commissioners
have a once-in-a-lifetime op-
portunity to impact in a posi-
tive way the affordable hous-
ing market in North Port.
By creating a land trust to,
accept and hold title to all the
escheated lots in North Port,
the commissioners could as-
sure that many young fami-
lies moving to North Port to
work could, find home sites
they could afford. Hurricane,
victims who have lost their
homes recently might also be
considered candidates for
some of these affordable
home sites.
By having the. land trust
hold title to the escheated
lots, increases in the land
value are not a factor on
resale, thus helping to stabi-
lize the affordable housing
market.
It would be. interesting to
see if Sarasota County is will-
ing to relinquish its claim to

Is the idea to make traffic worse?


Stuck again. It seems like once again I'm sitting on 41 north-
bound through Venice/Nokomis because of an accident on
Interstate 75, something that seems to happen every other day
or every third day. I just don't understand why they just keep
building and building and building. There's no room on the
roads, there's no room in the hospital, there's not enough doc-
tors, there's not enough water and they still keep building and
building. As far as this traffic jam I could probably walk
faster it seems to me that if the police department just got
out and operated the traffic light on the corner of Laurel Road
and 41, they could get a lot of this traffic back on the freeway.
The traffic light is not geared right now for this volume of traf-
fic flowing through here because of an emergency situation on
the freeway. I think we need the sheriff's department or the
police department to look at it. I have called them and men-
tioned it, but that's as far as that got.


A half-inch short. I've re-
cently called code enforce-
ment with a couple of over-
grown-grass violations. Fol-
lowing up on the enforce-
ment a couple of weeks after I
had reported it, I was told that
the weeds and the grass were
not high enough they only
measure 11-11 1/2 inches. To
me 11-1/2 inches is the same
as 12 when it comes to an
overgrown property that's ne-
glected and let go. Maybe we
need to change some of these
rules and laws. Personally, as
soon as my grass gets a cou-
ple of inches over the top it
looks messy to me, but that's
me. I think 10 inches of grass
is high enough. Anything near
10 inches looks like it's
neglected and run down. I'm
trying to keep my property
value up and the code en-
forcement department is not
helping.
Too many chiefs. I think the
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Department is getting too
many chiefs and not enough
deputies on the road. For the
safety of the residents of Sara-
sota County, we need dep-
uties out on the road, not sit-
ting behind some desk some-
place.
No longer home. Straight-
en out the confusing roads
(especially on U.S. 41) so visi-
tors can. go to the hospital to
see their family members
without causing a wreck. I
lived in: Nokomis back in
1949, when there was only a


two-way street from Nokomis
to Venice. Boy, has it ever
changed. It isn't home any-
more.
It's the jets. I'm so disap-
pointed that you haven't
printed my important mes-
sage and I hope your decision
hasn't been a political one.
The Venice airport com-
plaints are primarily against
the jet aircraft, not the single-
engine planes. When I moved
here 20 years ago there were
no jet aircraft, and therefore it
was not a location deter-
mined ignorantly. Landings,
takeoffs and touch-and-go
maneuvers are done visually.
This is OK for single-engine
planes, and hopefully all fliers
have their radio contacts on.
You printed the nasty-atti-
tude call of the woman giving
her definition of the word
"idiot." My answer was intelli-
gent: Jet aircraft do not belong
at Venice airport. They en-
danger all the single-engine
aircraft and the neighboring
community. They were not
here when I bought my home.
The noise, the jet fuel fumes
and their too-low attitude
endanger us all. I witnessed
the single-engine crash-land
on Kmart and Publix and the
nosedive into the pool adja-
cent to the airport. A jet error
would take a far greater toll.
Again, pay attention: The
problem is the jet aircraft.
Shame. I'm very, very sur-
prised and disappointed as to
how many people illegally

I received an e-mail from a
reader regarding my story on
a discussion by Sarasota
County commissioners about
methods the county could
use to retain some affordable
housing in the county.
By affordable, we're not
talking about low-income
housing, such as the Janie Poe
,project in downtown Sara-
sota. We're talking about
homes, as my reader wrote,
that are affordable by roofers,
electricians and others in
construction trades. The list
extends even further, includ-
ing policemen, teachers and
yes, even journalists.

POLISHING FILLINGS?
After a filling is placed, it should be smooth and carved to natural
tooth contours. Polishing fillings to a high luster is not necessary.
Sufficient smoothness can be obtained by burnishing amalgam fillings
just after placement. Composite fillings are more likely to require
polishing to remove excess margin material.
In time. amalgam fillings may darken and cause a slight darkening of
enamel. They may also become a little uneven at the edges often
forming a small crevice at the junction with the tooth surface. Because
of slight meal corrosion, these crevices fill in and actually improve the
seal of almagram against bacterial penetration. Even if it looks a little
"shaggy" the filling may not need to be replaced.
Polishing amalgam periodically to smooth the edges is usually not
necessary unless it eliminates a potential food trap area. If the defect is
slight, as described above, nothing is gained. If it is large, polishing
will not solve the problem, and the filling should be replaced.

data compiled by the county's
Community Development
Department, homes in the
$88,100-$158,000 price range
made up 32 percent of the
total real estate market in
2000. Homes in the $41,100-
$88,000 price range amount-
ed to 39 percent of the total
market.
Three years later, the mar-
ket for the $88,100-$158,000
homes had increased to 38
percent, but the market for
the cheaper homes had
declined to a mere 13 percent.
The trends are not good.
Analyzing sales value by
price range, county housing
officials project the lower-
priced market will decrease to
9 percent in 2007, while the
market for slightly more ex-
pensive homes slides to 16
percent. More important, that
data show the market for
homes valued at $251,000
and higher climbs from 18
percent in 2000 to 51 percent
in 2007. .
Other statistics "show the
county will need an addition-
al 6,384 affordable rental
units and an additional 6,085
single-family homes by 2010
to meet current and projected
needs.


The key word here is
affordable.
With escalating real estate
prices, Sarasota is becoming
so pricey that the very resi-
dents who provide most of
the services property owners
in these palaces rely on can
no longer afford to live here.
And where will they go?
North Port, long the choice
of lower income families, is on
the expensive-home binge,
and land prices in Charlotte
and Manatee counties are
escalating as well.
Without the market being
willing to police itself and
commit to building afford-
able housing, commissioners
will have to use the proverbial
"stick-and-carrot" approach
to ensure Sarasota's supply of
future affordable housing
stock.
Not doing so will lead to a
not-so-sustainable future
with the have-nots commut-
ing to Sarasota from places
like Arcadia and Wauchula, or
farther.

Hurricane fortified rooms coming ;l I


ROGER BUTTON
-^ I i 1 P5


'After the past hurricane
season, we have to look at
what we would do if we could
build again," said Michael
Saunders, president of Mich-
ael Saunders & Company. In
the Southwest Florida mar-
ket, there are already plans to
avoid a repeat of the personal
suffering. Developers will be
constructing safe rooms
within multi-story condo-
minium projects and water-
front properties. In every con-
dominium there is a central
community room that could
be fortified, perfectly engi-
neered and built as a shelter,
according to Saunders.
A safe room, more rein-
forced, with generators run-
ning refrigeration, an extra
bathroom, even showers, all
self-contained. Building
codes are so strict today most
newer homes sustained the
winds, older buildings did
not, so people had to get out
on the streets and race to a
safe shelter. Remembering
the Cuban Missile Crisis in
the 60s when everyone want-
ed to build shelters and pre-
pare for stored water and
tinned foods, Saunders com-
mented, "It's a brilliant idea to
have a safe room in your own
home."
Already a developer in Fort
Myers is designing a safe
community room in his new
condominium tower. With
architectural advice he has
tried to think of everything. It
will be higher than the park-
ing level on the third or above
level to avoid a tidal surge,
engineered and designed
with extra bathrooms and
facilities where people can
come for safety, even bringing
food to share. In a time of de-
struction everyone is anxious
to get back to their home that
they have had to abandon,
but with a safe room they can
stay knowing their residence
is safe, said Saunders. It can
even be incorporated in the
less expensive homes by tak-
ing advice on how to reinforce
an existing room.
Blackburn Cove to break
ground in Nokomis
Work is expected to begin
later this month on a new Key
West architectural style devel-
opment, Blackburn Cove in
Nokomis, according to devel-
oper Tom Connor of the Lan-
cer Group in Ohio. He recent-
ly purchased 4 acres on Black-
burn Road for more than $1
million from First Choice
Construction. There will be 36
condos priced between
$260,000 and 280,000, appro-
ximately 1,500 square feet
with two bedrooms and two
bathrooms in four quad
buildings of nine units.
Nine condos are reserved,
according to Realtor Gary
Iuliano of Prudential Cascade
in Nokomis.
Builders, the Henning
Group of Naples, expect to
have Phase 1 completed in 10
months.
The location, with lots of
trees and a pond on the west
side of Tamiami Trail just
north of the State Road 681
junction, is a big plus, just 2
miles from Nokomis Beach,

Builders Model Home Fur-
niture are increasing their
space, compared to the No-
komis store when they open
their new store at Venice Vil-
lage Shoppes at Jacaranda
and U.S. 41. The 9,000-
square-foot store will have
more inventory and be locat-
ed at 4127 South Tamiami
Trail, near the Ross Dress For
Less store, which is currently
under construction. "As we
will be bigger, we will be hir-
ing more staff when we open
on March 20th," said owner
Jeff Smith. The company has
two stores in Sarasota aind
one in Bradenton.
Mattress King
acquires store
The former Home Designs
& Flooring store at 1734 South
Tamiami Trail has been
leased to Mattress King. The
11,500-square-foot property
is located opposite the new
Lowe's store, which is under
construction. Oakmont Capi-
tal Resources of Sarasota han-
dled the transaction.
Sub shop has
new owners
Former New Yorkers John
and Tricia Cuccio have
acquired Steve's Sub Shop,
339 W. Venice Ave. from Mike
and Sue Thompson. Cuccio
and his parents ran a mom-
and-pop Italian seafood res-
taurant, The Wander Inn on
Long Island, until two years
ago when they, moved to
Sarasota and became Real-
tors on Siesta Key. Cuccio
wanted to get back into the
restaurant business and is
running the sub shop, which
he plans to redecorate and
may add a few items. His wife
has transferred to Century 21
downtown. "I enjoy Venice
and am sticking with subs to
continue this successful busi-
ness," stated Cuccio.
More royal palms

The southern entrance to
Venice is about to take on a
new appearance as Venice
Chrysler completes its major
northern end landscaping
from the existing' showroom
to the recently renovated
Circus South Bridge on U.S.
41 Business.
The $1.2-million expan-
sion on the 2 acres to the
north includes a new 5,500-
square-foot building housing
six detail bays and a car wash.
"Our royal palm trees

walk," said owner Bob Gold-


en.
Joe's going back to work
Prominent community
worker, Joe Dombrowski, at
67, has decided to go back to
work. With his wife, Diana, he
started the Pennsylvania Steel
Company in January 1973
and today the 105,000-
square-foot facility of four
plants and a corporate head-
quarters employs 105 people.
The company distributes
specialty steel and alu-
minum, 50 percent of which
is imported from the United
Kingdom. Both their son and
daughter work for the com-
pany and there is a CEO han-
dling the daily management.
Recently Dombrowski ac-
quired the Bridgeport, Conn.,
Steel Company, a 35,000-
square-foot facility with 11
employees, which he intends
to amalgamate with-his com-
pany. He is negotiating the
acquisition of a Greensboro,
N.C., company that special-
izes in tool steel and die work
for the automotive industry.
'As long as my health permits
me to continue, I will grow
my company. Originally, after
my first acquisition, things
slowed down and I spent
much of my time on commit-
ments to the community, but
now I'm excited to start
again," commented Dom-
browski.
With his wife he has pur-
chased a home in Ocean City,
N.J., to be near his family, but
intends\ to continue using his
Nokomis home. Dombrowski
is board member of the Am-
erican Cancer Society and
also served on the Venice
Hospital Foundation Board.

Hom, Furniture, was acquir-
ed by Saul Lapidus from Jef-
frey J. Smith for $227,500. It
will continue to operate as
some type of commercial es-
tablishment, according to a
spokesperson for Barry Seidel
of American Property Group
of Sarasota Inc., who handled
the transaction.
Eyesore burned down
A derelict eyesore in No-
komis, the former building at
400 Tamiami Trail by Palm
Avenue, was recently burned
to the ground in test exercises
by the Nokomis Volunteer
Fire Brigade. With the major
U.S. 41 upgrading and road
improvements in Nokomis in
the next year or two, property
prices of $775,000 for a 1-acre
commercial lot will be history
in Sarasota County claimed
ReMax broker, Chris Trits-
chler, who anticipates a res-
taurant or retail store could
open on the site.
Beach pavilion
work delayed
Reconstruction renovation
of Nokomis Beach Pavilion
has been delayed again to
await a historical restoration
grant application. The results
will not be known until June,
when further design changes
may necessitate additional
permitting approval.
Two grants totaling
$600,000 have been ap-
proved, but it has decided to
wait for the third grant of
$300,000 so that all costs are
covered.
Recently inspections of the
septic tank and sewers have
been undertaken. More
changes are anticipated for
coastal setbacks, erosions
plus realigning the board-
walks and to make them ADA
accessible according to Terry
Redman, Sarasota County
supervisor of Parks and
Gardens Capital Programs.

Counting down to hurricane season


STAFF REPORT


Hurricane season is 90
days away, so consumers still
have time to install home
hurricane protection.
If you've been thinkifig
about securing your home
with impact-resistant win-
dows, you still have time be-
fore June 1. A typical re-
placement project of 10 to 12
windows takes four to five
weeks.
These consumer tips will
help to ensure a successful
window replacement project.
Q.: What is the first step in a
window replacement project?'
A.: Contact your local buil-
ding department to find out
what codes your windows
and doors must meet.
Choose only from products.
that have received Florida
State or Miami-Dade product
approval. Know that prod-
ucts with Miami-Dade
approval offer the best pro-


tection available.
Q.: How do I select a contrac-
tor and products?
A.: For replacement pro-
jects, choose either a remod-
eler or window replacement
company. In either case, be
sure to:
1. Get at least three esti-
mates.
2. Make sure your contrac-
tor is licensed. Get the con-
tractor's, license number and
verify licensure at:
state.fl.us/dbpr/.
3. Ask for references and
check them.
4. Do research: Look on
the Internet, ask friends, con-
tact the Better Business
Department of the Venice
Area Chamber of Commerce,
speak to your building de-
partment or the window
manufacturer to make sure
the company is reputable.
5. Review your contract
before signing and ask ques-
tions about any items you


don't understand.
6. Make sure your contract
specifies the manufacturer of
the windows and type of win-
dows you are purchasing.
7. Read the product war-
ranty carefully so that you
understand exactly what is
covered and for how long.
8. Get copies of the prod-
uct approvals and make cer-
tain that they meet the code
requirements for your area.
9. Make sure a building
permit is obtained..
Q: How long will it.take for
me o get new windows?
A: Expect one or two days
for installation alone. For the
entire project, factor in addi-
tional time for the window
order, delivery and your con-
tractor's availability. From
start to finish, expect four to
five weeks for a typical re-
placement of 10 to 12 win-
dows in a house.

Centex to build 700 homes at Venetian Falls


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Don't be surprised if Vene-
tian Falls reaches build-out
ahead of schedule. With 10
decorated models completed
and open to view and most of
the infrastructure nearing
completion, the new commu-
nityis off to a running start on
its 700-home plan.
Housing stock will include
garden villas (free-standing),
paired villas and single family


homes. The entire communi-
ty is mainteriance-free, with
estimated fees ranging from
$215.93 to $248.31 at comple-
tion, and including adminis-
tration fees, cable TV land-
scaping for homes and com-
mon areas, membership in a
fitness and social club and
money for a reserve fund.
I checked out the Sorrento
this week. It is a single-family
home with two bedrooms,
two baths and den. It features
a bay window, which adds

real and visual space to the
home's kitchen breakfast
nook area and an entry foyer.
The den or third bedroom
is near the second bedroom
and bath as is the laundry
room, which is centrally
located to be handy to the
kitchen and dining .room as
well. There is a linen closet
next to the laundry room,
offering storage for the sec-
ond bath's towels and such.
.The master suite is at the
back of the home and con-
tains a large walk-in closet
with hanging space on two
adjacent walls. The master
bath contains twin vanity
sinks, storage beneath the
sink area, a linen closet within
the closeted toilet area and an
extra large walk-in shower.
The shower alone is proof that
this home's designer was not
afraid to think outside of the
box. Too many homes, even
those in much higher price
ranges, fail to increase the size
of the walk-in showers, even
when they are increasing the
size of everything else in the
house.
Completed with decorated
tile, this spa-like .shower adds
a touch of luxury to this 1,730-
square-foot house.
Adding in the dimensions
of the lanai beyond the mas-
ter suite and living room, the
entry and garage, the home
totals 2,350 square feet.'
Both the great room and
dining area borrow space
from one another so that
effect is one of space. That
feeling was further enhanced
by the neutral color scheme
chosen by the model's deco-

RECIPES AND MORE 2B


SAVE A LIFE: DONATE BLOOD 4B


shoo


The addition of vinegar and baking soda to molasses and
water causes a chemical reaction in which the mixture bubbles


Lou Sauppe casually measures flour into a bowl for shoo fly pie.


Grandma's molasses, Publix brown sugar, flour, vinegar, bak-
ing soda and butter are the main ingredients of Pennsylvania
Dutch favorite, shoo fly pie.,


"Some people tell you to
combine everything," he said.
Indeed, the original recipe
in the cookbook said to do
just that but the Sauppe vari-
ation is different and the rea-
son he can make a wet or dry
bottom pie, as desired. It is all
in the layering of the two mix-
tures.
For the wet bottom pie he
pours some of the wet mix-
ture into the bottom of the
pan first and for the dry bot-
tom pie, he covers the pie
plate bottom with the crumb
mixture. From that point on,
he alternates layers of wet.
and dry ingredients, filling
each pie dish, until finally
topping both with the crumb
mixture.
"You don't have to layer
evenly," he said. "There will
be pockets when done. Some
like it gooey on the bottom
when the pie is cut. I like a dry


bottom. The molasses pretty
much gets all soaked up in the
flour but you want it all cov-
ered with flour so you don't
see any wemess.
He put the two crumb-cov-
ered gooey pies into a 350-
degree oven to bake for 40
minutes, and then let them
cool for a while before serv-
ing.
If it is humid or the oven
has not been adequately pre-
heated, you may need to bake
the pies a few minutes longer.
They should be set when
done. Test with a toothpick.
Shoo fly pie is not the only
dish he prepares from his
grandmother's cookbook.
"I picked out what I liked,"
he said. "I probably made a
dozen or so."
Watch for some of those
recipes on the Coffee Break
pages of the Venice Gondolier,
Sun in coming months.


Wet and dry shoo fly pies are almost ready to be put into the
oven.

Pet festival and blood drive


STAFF REPORT

Florida's Blood Center
sponsors a blood drive at the
Paws In The Park and Big
Dogs Pet Walk and Festival on
Saturday, March 19, at Blalock
Park, behind the community
center in Venice. The blood
drive will be 9 a.m.-3 p.m. In
addition to the blood drive
and pet walk, there will be a
pet fashion show, arts and
crafts, pet contests, pet adop-
tions, corvette show, live,
good food and lots more.
By raising awareness of the


op 4 I d


ever-growing blood shortage
in our community, we can
ensure a safe and adequate
blood supply to the Venice
and Englewood area. Florida's
Blood Centers is the sole
provider of blood and blood
products for Venice Regional
Medical Center and Engle-
wood Community Hospital.
To donate blood, you must
be in good health, 17 years of
age or older and weigh a
minimum of 110 pounds. As
a benefit to the donor, a
mini-health check, which
includes evaluations of blood


pressure, iron level and cho-
lesterol, is performed to help
the donor maintain his or her
good health.
The entire procedure, from
completing a short medical
history to drawing blood and
resting afterward with refresh-
ments, takes approximately
30-45 minutes. Blood dona-
tion is safe, and healthy peo-
ple can donate every 56
days.
Donating blood saves other
people's lives, but it may save
your life as well. According to
research, donating blood just


three times a year can dramat-
ically reduce the chance of a
heart attack and certain types
of cancer.
Save a human life by giving
blood. Up to three lives can
be saved with each donation.
Save a pet's life by adopting a
furry friend. Everyone can
become a part of the solution.
Join us for this very special
event!
For more information, call
Elaine Davidson of Florida's
Blood Center Venice at
492-9202 or the Suncoast
Humane Society at 474-7884.

VWP trailguide


now available


What a wonderful thing to
see: When I walked into the
office of the South Venice
Civic Association last Tues-
day, there on the visitors
counter were flyers called
"Venetian Waterway Park
Trailguide," compliments of
the Venice Gondolier Sun.
We have been waiting for
the news that the Venetian
Waterway Park is coming up
from Shamrock Park to the
Circus Bridge in South Venice
on the side that borders our
South Venice subdivision.
There will be parking on each
side of the Circus Bridge to
take you to either Caspersen
Beach Park to the west of the
Intracoastal Waterway or to
Shamrock Park on the east
side, or north on either side.
This is certainly a direct

asset to our community. The
VWP is a linear park designed
in 1993 to offer residents and
visitors of all ages a safe place
to walk, jog or ride a bike, and
the trail is completely ADA
accessible. Stretching 10
miles upon completion in the
winter of 2005, the trail con-
nects parks, schools and com-
munities throughout the
Venice area.
Congratulations to the
Venice Area Chamber of
Commerce members who
first conceived the idea and
continue to carry the project
to completion through its tax-
exempt organization, Venice
Area Beautification Inc. A
great job very well done.
.I learned at the Regional
Neighborhood Conference
last week that neighborhoods
should focus on their assets
only not any liabilities -
and promote and protect
those assets. Here's a list of the
waterfront related assets in
and near our South Venice
residential community:
The 165-acre Lemon Bay
Preserve.
Thirty-two lakes and
parks within our community,
and creeks running through
it.
We are bordered on the
west side by the Intracoastal
Waterway and Lemon Bay.
Our ferry transports folks
over to our 1,300 feet of Gulf
'of Mexico beachfront proper-
ty.
And now, the Venetian
Waterway Park.
What community do you
know that can beat that com-
bination?
No wonder we are being
rediscovered in this, the 50th
anniversary of the SVCA. Our
property values keep going up
and up.

Firefighters prepare for Southeast



Regional Extrication Challenge


BY RACHEL ALEXANDER
STAFF WRITER


Englewood Emergency Man-
agement Service has been
training its firefighters for
years in automobile extrica-
tion procedures, but a recent
exercise was a first.
In nearly 80-degree heat
and fully garbed in heavy suits
and protective helmets, a
team of seven EMTs fought to
cut away at a car to save a
"patient" trapped inside. They
had 20 minutes to do it.
-The training is a little dif-
ferent for the firefighters be-
cause this simulation is prac-
tice for competition March
16-19 in St. Petersburg.
"We're a little nervous
about this," Lt. Ray Bauer
said. "Because this is the first
time we've done this for com-
petition."
The team will compete
against some 20 other teams
from around the state in the
Southeast Regional Extrac-
tion Challenge.
Captain Scott Lane, former
chief of the Nokomis Volun-
teer Fire Department, said the
competition is important in
light of the increasing popula-
tion and traffic accidents.
"This will better prepare us
for the future," Lane said.
Lane said the firefighters
will be judged on technique,
safety and performance with-
in in the specified time.
"It will be a challenge,"
Lane said. "We're looking for-
ward to it."
Play by play


Bauer said other teams
around the state have been
very informative about what
to expect at the challenge. He
said the training is broad and
includes very unique types of
collisions.'
"They are extra-hard vehi-
cle accidents we would see in

the community," Bauer said.
"One vehicle over another,
loaders rolled over."
In the case of the practice
simulation, one car drove up
on top of another car, pinning
the driver inside.
It was necessary for the
team to first stabilize the top
car, then to cut the passenger
side door off. Then the win-
dow was completely cut out
while the victim was kept safe
from flying glass. The steering
wheel that could not be man-


ually lifted had to be pulled
up with a tag-a-long.
While equipment ground-
ed and ripped through steel,
EMT Joseph Mills remained
in the car calming his patient.
"I was getting personal in-
formation," Mills said. 'And
we try to reassure them hav-
ing all this stuff going on
around them."
It's all part of the training,
Mills said.
"We go through it play by
play," he said.


Other members of the
team who will engage in the
four-day competition are Jim
Laurie, Dave Spargur and.Lee
Wiskowski.
Bauer said the team will
train at least once a week until
the event at Gulf Coast Tow-
ing. Greg Roberts, owner of
the business, often donates
his property and cars for the
procedure, said employee
Randy Hopkins. He donates
vehicles to Lemon Bay High
School as well.

The blessing of hospice


"Hospice is suicide!" That's
what Dad said anytime the
subject of death came up,
which happened quite a lot in
those last few years, especial-
ly since so many of his dear
friends had died. "I can't
believe anyone would even
think about it," Dad would
say. "Going to a hospice is
like signing your own death
sentence!"
Clearly this was not a sub-'
ject that Dad took lightly and
although he had had very
little personal experience
with a hospice program, he
thought he knew what it was.
But Dad's perceptions were
based on insufficient infor-
mation, colored by the fear
of the unknown.
Sadly our beloved Dad
had a health condition that
was progressive and soon the
powerful medicines that he
had taken for so many years
were no longer effective. We

learned that Dad's options
were limited. One choice was
nursing home care and ag-
gressive treatment that might
extend his life by a few
months, but would not re-
lieve the feeling he had de-
scribed so graphically. He'd
say, "I feel like I'm drowning.
I hate the feeling and it
scares me."
The second choice was a
hospice program. I was elect-
ed to explain Dad's options
to him. Although I was not
averse to discussing anything
related to death and dying, I
was troubled by what Dad
always said about hospice. I
wasn't looking forward to this
meeting.
"I have some bad news for
you, Dad," I began. "It seems
that your heart problem just
isn't going to get any better." I
explained about the aggres-
sive treatment but Dad inter-
rupted me in mid-sentence.
"What are my options?"
"Here it comes," I thought
and took a deep breath. "The
doctor says that you could go
into hospice." I waited. I knew
that even in his weakened
condition Dad could still roar.
So I waited to hear, "Hospice
is suicide!" But the roar never
came. Instead he said, "Tell
me more."

Interfaith leader speaks


at VICA meeting


STAFF REPORT

Nosrat Scott discusses one
of the least-known yet the
second most widespread of
the world's independent reli-
gions, the Baha'i faith, at the
Venice Interfaith Community
Association meeting at 7 p.m.
Tuesday, March 8, at the
Venice United Church of
Christ.
Scott will address her ex-
periences in the Baha'i faith,
religious persecution in Iran
and her leadership within
the interfaith community.
As a member of the Baha'i
faith in Iran, Scott knew no
freedom, and she made it her
mission in her adopted coun-
try to break down barriers of
prejudice among peoples.
She and other Baha'i believe
all the world's major religions
play a role in the evolution of
humankind, directed toward
the formation of a universal
human family.

AIELLO from page 6B


I took his hand and told
him that hospice was a pleas-
ant place, that the staff was
warm and caring and that
their mission was to keep the
patients comfortable and
pain-free.
"Sounds good to me,"
Dad said, as he was about to
drift off to sleep. I bent down
to kiss him and told him that
I was off to find a bite to eat.
He looked up, smiled and
pulled me closer. "Go to the
north cafeteria," he whis-
pered. "The coffee there is
free."
A few days later, he was
admitted to Hospice by the
Sea in Boca Raton, Fla. It
was beautiful, bright and
cheerful, with. rooms that
opened on to lovely gardens
and patios. There were snacks
available for family members,
who were encouraged to
come often and stay as long
as they liked. There were cots
that could be placed beside
the loved one's bed so friends
and family could spend the
night. And they even had a
parrot named "Elis" that
loved listening to all the dif-
ferent melodies on the cell
phones that everyone could
use without usual hospital
restrictions.
Yet more than the place, it
was the people who made all


the difference. Each hospice
nurse was trained not only
in medical procedures for
alleviating pain, but in the
equally important area of
relationships. Staff and vol-
unteers explained the process
of dying to us in terms as
beautiful and loving as any
poem or song ever written.
The staff doctor and rabbi
were available to us and
pamphlets explained what
we needed to know. When
things became difficult be-
tween family members, a
staff member was ready to
find a private space to medi-
ate the problem. No. one was
ever too busy to give us a hug
or hold our hands.
Most important, Dad re-
laxed. He smiled, talked, and
when, he could no longer
speak, listened with knowing
eyes as we shared precious
memories and told him that
we loved him. His sons and
his best friend were with him
when he passed away.
Dying is never easy, not
for the person experiencing
the end of his life or for the
family who will miss their
loved one so much. Yet Jew-
ish traditions teach us that
death is a part of life. As nat-
ural as it is to be born, so is it
natural for us to pass on.
The Kabbalists, the Jewish


mystics, say our loved ones
are welcomed on the other
side by family and friends
who have gone before and
that everyone meets and
greets around the "reunion
table." For me the pain of
passing on is alleviated
somewhat by this vivid and
joyous image.
The wonderful people at
hospice helped our family
cope with the complex emo-
tions that are a part of termi-
nal illness. They renewed my
faith in the goodness of peo-
ple and in the presence of a
loving and compassionate
God. In the Torah we read
that after his wrestling match
with the angel, Jacob ex-
claimed, "God was in this
place and I ... I did not
know." Like Jacob, our family
had an eye-opening experi-
ence. In the loving arms of
hospice, we felt God's pres-
ence and God's grace.

St. Francis Animal Rescue celebrates 12 years in Venice


GRACE JOYCE
GUEST COLUMNIST

We at St. Francis Animal


Rescue are proud to0 be cele-
brating our 12th year helping
homeless and abandoned
animals. During the past 12
years, a lot of things have
changed. When, SFAR was
founded, the "no-kill" philos-
ophy was viewed as a rather
radical approach to the issue
of animal over-population.
"No-kill" means that the
organization works to end
senseless killings of animals.
Instead of euthanizing ani-
mals not considered "adopt-
able" (they are older, chroni-


cally ill, wild, have behavioral
problems, for example), these
animals are placed in rescue
shelters, sanctuaries, or with
other special organizations
that provide housing, security
and care for life. SFAR is one
of those organizations.
As the "no-kill" movement
gained in popularity, there
were many myths associated
with the practical side of how
organizations like ours could
operate. Many thought (and
some still think) that "no-kill"
shelters only take the young-


est and healthiest animals
that are easy to place in new
homes. Unfortunately, this
couldn't be farther from the
truth. Although we do care
for, and adopt out, many
healthy pets, our efforts focus
on the care of animals in the
most desperate cases. Our
residents include those that
are the oldest, weakest, sick-
est and least likely to be
adopted. The animals that do
not find homes become resi-
dents for life.
There are many local and


national organizations that
work together to help these'
animals. Through rescue
efforts, community educa-
tion and spay/neuter pro-
grams, we all have the ability
to end these senseless kill-
ings. The good news is that in
Sarasota County the number
of animals euthanized in
shelters last year was on the
decline. Great news to hear-
but there's still much more.to
be done. St. Frahcis Animal
Rescue has been working on
behalf of the animals for 12


years and we're not about to
give up now! This year we
hope everyone will join in our
quest by supporting our ef-
forts to provide homes for all
of the homeless animals in
our community.
Grace Joyce is St. Francis
Animal Rescue president and
co-founder: St. Francis
Animal Rescue is located at
1925 South Tamiami Trail,
Venice. Adoption hours are
Monday through Thursday,
1-5 p.m., and Saturday, 11

GUEST WRITER


"Be Cool"... is.
Cool. Almost too cool for
its own good.
The "Get Shorty" sequel
feels loose, casual, as jokey as
the one-liners Chili Palmer
(John Travolta) drops about
the movie career he so want-
ed to have when he was but
a mob collector (a "Shylock")
in the first film.
"I never do sequels."
Yeah, he's rich and famous.
He's done Charlie Rose. But
Chili's losing interest, and has
already lost his creative mojo.
He misses his old gig.
"At least they're honest-
about being dishonest."
But "Be Cool" takes the
easy laughs. It's a comedy.
that sits a little too snugly in
its own comfort zone. It gives
us what we want and expect.
It never dares to surprise.
Chili Palmer is ready for a
fresh challenge when a pal in
the even seamier music busi-
ness is killed, leaving him a
possible new star (Christina
Milian) who only needs to
break out of a suffocating


Andrew Lloyd Webber's
The Phantom of the
Opera
A disfigured musical genius,
hidden away in the Paris Opera
House, terrorizes the opera com-
pany for the unwitting benefit of
a young protege whom he trains

The Aviator
Focusing on his early years
this is the story of how young'
Howard Hughes transformed a
small fortune into a massive one.
Howard Hughes (DiCaprio)
moved to Los Angeles to
become a Hollywood film pro-
ducer, where he helped launch
the career of Jean Harlow and
other starlets, and producing
such classics as Hell's Angels,
The Front Page, Flying Leather-
necks, and Scarface (the 1932
original), eventually owning RKO
Pictures.

Because of Winn-Dixie
A 10-year old girl reconnects
with her father after moving in
with him following her mother's
abandonment. She adopts a dog
whom she names after the local


contract, cut a record and
win national exposure to
become "the next big thing."
Enter the widowed record
label owner (Uma Thurman).
She helps work out the re-
cording session and makes
the connection to Aero-
smith's Steven Tyler, who
might help them out. Chili
gives various managers, pro-
ducers and others his "Look
at me" speech. They're not
as easily intimidated as the
movie types, because a lot of
them are ex-wiseguys, too.
Somehow, through all
this, a star might be born.
The film of Elmore Leon-
ard's follow-up novel shows
Leonard and the filmmakers
to be a lot more fascinated
by the movie business than
the music- business, They-
don't try as hard.
Travolta's performance
was largely a matter of just.

watching wrestler/accdon star
The Rock try to play a gay
bodyguard. Plainly the role
scared him. .He can't decide
how far to go with the charac-
ter Rock Hudson butch, or
dial it up to full-tilt hair
dresser stereotype.
He wants to be an actor.
"He does one eyebrow?
That's it?"
Rock fans will get the joke.
It's an eyebrow-arching per-
formance with a little panic
in it, always a good thing.
Nobody else was pan-
icked, or even worried. Thur-
man isn't funny. Vaughan
isn't as funny as he thinks.
Cedric needs to take a little
time off. At least Andre 3000,
as an inept member of
Cedric's pose, grows on you,
and Milian is easy'on the-
eyes and ears.
"Be Cool" doesn't ruin the
memory of the dark farce that
preceded it., But "Get Shorty"
had a clear goal, and an,
industry worth lampooning.
Maybe the music business is
beyond satire at this point.
And from the looks of "Be
Cool," Travolta, at least, real-
ized that going in.
