The new construction

struction materials be re-
moved or secured within 24
hours of a hurricane watch
being issued. The ban contin-
ues until the hurricane watch
or warning is lifted.
Hammett, Bill Willson,
Rick Tacy and Mayor Dean
Calamaras all voted in favor
of the new ordinance, the first
of its kind in Sarasota,
Charlotte or Manatee coun-
ties. They'll all need to cast
"yes" votes again March 22 for
the law to become official.
Those opposed were
Moore, John Sirnmmonds and
Vicki Taylor. Both Simmonds
and Moore wanted the ordi-
nance to apply to every resi-
dent, not just construction
sites.
Penalties include the con-


tractor listed on building per-
mits being hit with a $500
fine, 60 days in jail and revo-
cation of business license.
Sarasota County commis-
sioners will consider, a nearly
identical law March 15.
Dickson Clements, presi-
dent of Home Builders Asso-

to council ask-
ing them to
not pass the

cially if a con-
tractor lacks the manpower to
secure a construction site
within 24
hours of a

issued.
"That's not a
whole lot of
time to mobi-
lize a labor
force," Clem-
Calamaras ents said.
HBA asked
the city to hold off and let
state legislators create a law,
but City Manager Marty Black
isn't willing to wait.
"Frankly, with hurricane
season 60 to 90 days out, and
seeing very little to no move-
ment from the state, we're
going to move forward with
our own ordinance," Black
said.
The city manager disagrees
with HBA criticism the penal-
ties are too harsh, especially
after asking for voluntary
cooperation last hurricane
season that was often
ignored.
The majority of council
agreed with Black.
"We've got to have some
teeth to go after the ones who
are irresponsible," Tacy said.

Lack of housing may be driving out working-dclass families


BY JACK GURNEY

An ominous sign that Sara-
sota County's obsession with
upscale new development
may be driving service sector
families out of the communi-
ty has set off alarm bells with
local officials who provide
programs for preschool chil-
dren from working class fam-

"We're looking at data that
indicates we may be losing
that population," said Bill
Little, the county's public
health director and a member

Miners used to take caged
birds underground with them


to determine if the air quality
was good enough to sustain
life. If the- sensitive creatures
suffocated due to the lack of
oxygen or strangled on trap-
ped gases, the miners took it
as a sign it was time to get out.

Fireworks case may

go up in smoke

A higher court ruling upholding a similar
ordinance in Pinellas County may doom
Discount Fireworks' effort to invalidate
a Sarasota County law.


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


A January appellate court
decision may have deter-
mined the outcome of a local
fireworks company's legal.
challenge to a county ordi-
nance.
On April, 12th Circuit Judge
Deno Economou will decide
if there's enough difference
between a Sarasota County
ordinance regulating the sale
of fireworks and a similar
ordinance in Pinellas County
to allow a lawsuit filed against
the county by Discount Fire-
works of Central Florida to
continue in court.
Assistant County Attorney
Gary Oldehoff is seeking a
ruling in favor of the county
based on a Jan. 14 appel-
late decision upholding a
similar ordinance in Pinellas
County. In his motion seeking
summary judgment .for the
county, Oldehoff claims the
Sarasota ordinance is "identi-
cal" to the Pinellas ordinance.
Passed in November 2003,
the new county ordinance
made it unlawful to offer fire-
works for wholesale or retail
sale in the county except as
provided under Florida law.
Those provisions require the
buyer to furnish identifica-
tion, and if applicable, proof
of registration with the state
fire marshal or other docu-
mentation of compliance
with state laws. The vendor
must keep copies of this
documentation.
The ordinance also re-
quired businesses selling fire-
works to obtain a permit from
the fire chief showing compli-


ance with all state and federal
regulations regarding the
storage and display of the
merchandise. The vendor
must also maintain a liability
insurance policy at a mini-
mum of $1 million per facility.
Discount sued, claiming
that an overboard enforce-
ment of the ordinance was
'damaging its ability to sell
fireworks. The lawsuit named
the county, Sheriff Bill Balk-
will and Fire Marshal Jane
Ross as defendants.
But the decision by the 2nd
District Court of Appeal -
which has jurisdiction over
Sarasota may make Econ-
omou's decision easy.
No conflict
In that case Phantom Fire-
works sued the county, rais-
ing similar arguments to
those used by Discount in
the local case. In particular,
Phantom argued that the
county could not enact its
own, ordinance since the
state was already regulating
fireworks vendors by enacting
Chapter 791 of the state
statutes.
The appellate judges re-
jected that argument, how-
ever.
In the opinion, the jus-
tices wrote that the state had
not preempted the field and
the county could enact a
local ordinance "so long as
those regulations did not
directly conflict with state
law."
The ordinance has affected
two vendors in Sarasota
County Discount Fire-
works, which has operated at
locations in Englewood and


Utility lines to remain up in the air


The county would like to put power lines
underground, but the cost to bury them
would be prohibitive, a study found.


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


While they may detract
from the overall appearance,
the overhead power lines
along West Dearborn. Street
will apparently remain..
A report distributed to
Sarasota County commis-
sioners recently found that
the direct cost to bury the
power lines was estimated at
$523,000. In addition, the
county would incur another
$100,000 in costs to repair
concrete or asphalt driveways
disturbed by the burial, bring-
ing the total to $623,000.
If the county were to pur-
sue the project, business own-
ers would also have to pay to
convert from the overhead
service to the underground
service, a cost that county
staff estimates would be
$4,000 for the average build-
ing on the street.
With 85 businesses on
West Dearborn Street, the
total estimated cost for busi-
ness owners could run ,as
high as $340,000, noted Chris
Davis, coordinator of the

Englewood Redevelopment
Area.
"The existing businesses
have further indicated that an
assessment for this project
would be a serious setback to


Laurel, and Sky King Fire-
works in Sarasota.
Under the Florida statute,
illegal fireworks are defined
as those types of devices that
produce a visible or audible
effect through combustion,
explosion or detonation.
While these devices are not


the businesses," Davis wrote.
The cost of relocating tele-
phone, cable or other utility
lines could not be deter-
mined, the report noted.
Eyesore
County commissioners had
asked staff to look into the sit-
uation after commissioner
David Mills raised the matter
more than a year ago because
of the effect the overhead
lines had on the county's ef-
fort to revitalize Dearborn
Street.
"The power poles located
adjacent to the main street in
Englewood are an eyesore in
the downtown, are not com-
patible with the streetscaping
completed four years ago,
and the location of the over-
head lines will prevent new
structures from being con-
structed adjacent to the side-
walk ...," wrote Davis in intro-
ducing the reason for the
study.
Davis said she had con-
tacted Russ Chamberlin from
Florida Power & Light to ob-
tain the estimated cost to
bury the lines.
In a brief discussion on
the report, commissioners.
expressed disappointment at
the high cost but gave no
direction to staff to pursue the
matter any further.

City council approves new warning system


Council approves switching to a new alert system
for residents in time for hurricane season.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

City council approved a new
emergency notification system
that will replace the current
Venice Integrated Neighbor-
hood Emergency System, or
VINES, which received criti-
cism last hurricane season.
This new software allows.
the city to place calls to all


30,000 Venice phones num-
bers within 15 minutes, com-
pared to the seven hours
VINES would have required.
Code Red, as it is called, has
received the support of the
fire and police chiefs and
could qualify for Federal
Emergency Management
Agency grants.
Much of last hurricane sea-
son's criticisms dealt with


phone notifications going out
too slowly; some locations
being left out; and poor
reporting by TV stations.
"They won't even have to
watch TV to know if they
should be leaving or not," City
Manager Marty Black said.
Cost to the city would be
nearly $11,000 every year,
according to Steve Randall,
information systems director.
The system will be used for
weather alerts, utility inter-
ruptions, fire and flood disas-
ters and alerts for any other


hazardous situation.
Other approved computer
purchases included nearly,
$30,000 for Looking Glass soft-"
ware to upgrade the city's
address database, and $48,000
for additional NaviLine Appli-
cation software. All three pur-
chases would be from SunGard
HTE Inc.

cil meeting:
Bait shop Members
approved spending $40,000


to finally build the bait shop
at Venice Fishing Pier. Issues
of water supply and fire codes
prevented construction of the
bait shop when the new fish-
ing pier reopened last Sep-
tember following a $2.4 mil-
lion replacement project.
The bait shop was rede-
signed to meet fire codes be-
cause it did not allow enough
exit space for people to get off
of the pier in an emergency.
The redesign also allows the
shop to use existing water sup-
plies instead of establishing


new lines.
Albee Farm Road rezone
- Final approval was given to
rezone 9.6 acres on the east
side ofAlbee Farm Road across
from Bird Bay Drive East from

The land is mostly vacant and

Request for additional judges benched by Legislature


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


The Florida Legislature will
str6ogly consider a bill this
session that would add
judges to circuits throughout
h*'-state just not in
S~asota County.
gut the number of circuit
ju ges in the 20th Judicial
Ci' -t, which includes Char-
loie County, could increase
next year, although the exact
number is yet to be deter-
mined.
Companion bills intro-
duced in the the Florida
House of Representatives and
the Florida Senate would in-
crease the number of judges
in ,many of the state's circuit
courts and county courts.
In the House version of the
bill, three new judges would
be allowed in the 20th Judicial
Circuit, increasing the num-
ber-of judges on the bench


from 23 to 26. The Senate ver-
sion of the bill, however,
would only give the circuit
two new judges.
Besides Charlotte County,
the 20th Judicial Circuit in-
cludes Lee, Collier, Glades
and Hendry counties.
Neither bill increases the
number of judges in the 12th
Judicial Circuit, which in-
cludes Sarasota, DeSoto and
Manatee counties. That cir-
cuit has 19 judges to handle
the caseload coming from the
three counties.
The Senate bill, filed by
Sen. Victor Crist, R.-Tampa,
has been referred to the
Judiciary, Justice Appropri-
ations and the Ways and
Means committees. The
House version of the bill, in-
troduced by Rep. Bruce Kyle,
R.-Fort Myers, is in the House
Justice' Appropriations
Committee.
Co-sponsors on the House


bill include Reps. Mike Grant,
R.-Port Charlotte; Ron Rea-
gan, R.-Sarasota; Donna
Clarke, R.-Saras6ta; and Jeff
Kottkamp, R.-Cape Coral.
Overdue
While no action has been
taken on the two bills since
their introduction in early
January, the Legislature be-
gan its 2005 legislative session
Tuesday.
The filing of the bills fol-
lows a recommendation
made by the Florida Supreme
Court last December after the
justices conducted an analy-
sis of the caseload in the vari-
ous courts to determine if the
number of judges was ade-
quate.
Overall, the state Supreme
Court recommended to the
Legislature the addition of,
two appellate judges, 67 cir-
cuit judges and 41 county
courtjudges.


The Legislature has not
created additional positions
for the past two years, a fail-
ure pointedly noted in the
opinion issued by Chief
Justice Barbara Pariehte.
"Despite a well-docu-
mented process for assessing
workload, ever-increasing
caseloads and repeated certi-
fication requests, the Legis-
lature has failed to fund an
adequate number of judges
for this state," Pariente wrote.
"Each day, the circuit and
county judges of this state
work to dispense justice. In
many instances, their work-
load is well beyond capacity.
The workload demand, left
unaddressed, affects the
timeliness and quality of
judges' work. Faced with
increasing caseloads, judges
are forced to devote less time
to each case, resulting in the
potential for a diminished
quality of justice and a detri-


mental
law."


effect on the rule of


The numbers
Backing up their opinion
that more judges were need-
ed, the justices presented the
following statistics:
Capital murder cases
increased 14 percent from fis-
cal year 1999-2000 to fiscal
year 2002-03.
Non-capital murder
cases increased 31 percent
during the same period.
Domestic violence cases
increased 9 percent during
that period.
Baker Act cases for civil
commitments increased by
10 percent from 2001-02 to
2002-03 and are expected to
increase even more after the
passage of legislation creating
a new involuntary outpatient
placement procedure.
Florida's general jurisdic-
tion judges handle 46.5 per-


cent more filings than the
national average.
Exacerbating the problem,
said the justices, is the
increase in population during
the winter months and the
changing demographics of
Florida society, particularly
the increase in non-English
speaking residents.
"The net result is a growing
judicial need in the circuit

Although 12th Circuit
Chief Judge Robert Bennett
requested two new circuit

load.
It is not known when the
legislative committees will
take action on the two bills.

CITY NOTES


Amora landscaping lands code fines


The city and state say trees and shrubs
have altered natural stormwater drainage
at the development.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR


Former bank
building unsafe
The owner of Sun Trust
Bank's old drive-though loca-
tion on U.S. 41 Bypass has a
month left to correct code
violations or tear it down.
Sandwiched between Taco
Bell and Arby's restaurants,
the building at 420 North U.S.
41 Bypass was cited as unsafe
Feb. 11 with 60 days given to
correct the problem. Code
officers called the vacant
building a public hazard and
unsanitary because of "dilap-
idation, inadequate mainte-
nance and abandonment,"
according to the citation.
Specific violations includ-
ed mold and mildew, interior
wall damage and cracks in the
drive-through's roof, putting it
at risk of collapsing.
The owner, Robert Johnson
of Venice, found out about
the violations when contacted
for comment Tuesday. John-
son said he had not received
the notice in his mail.
He admits the building is
an eyesore and said for more
than a year he has been at-

tempting to find a-new tenant
or buyer to remodel the site.
"If something doesn't hap-
pen soon, we may ,wind up
knocking it down," Johnson
said.
Because the owner has 60
days to comply, Municipal
Code Enforcement Board
members most likely will not
hear the case and consider
fines until the May meeting.

City Manager Marty Black
says it's .up to union repre-
sentatives to explain the latest

A recent city employee

The Southwest Florida
Water Management District,
called Swiftmud, declared
that the raised landscaping
will not allow water to flow
and enter the Intracoastal
Waterway. Venice has gotten'
involved because its code
board helps enforce state
drainage rules by issuing
fines.
The Amora Homeowners
Association president spoke
on its behalf and claimed the
21-home subdivision inherit-
ed the problem when it took
over.
King countered by saying
the current landscaping has
been altered from original
Swiftmud permits, and Amora
has known about the problem
since, last August when
Swiftmud issued a notice of
violation.

Amora representatives said
they are working to correct
the violation. Code board
members found Amora guilty
and gave the association until
April 22 to correct the problem
or face $50 per day fines.
Other code board news
Here are the highlights of
other code enforcement
board cases heard last Thurs-
day.
Unsafe guard rails -
Fines continued to pile up
against Richard Neuen-
schwander, owner of an apart-
ment building at 207 North
Harbor Drive, because of an
unsafe guard rail first written
up last October. Neuen-
schwander was, given three
months to replace or at least
secure the second-floor railing
that's being held on by thin,
metal straps.
Code officers said building
permit applications have not
even been filed, so fines of
$100 per day continued on
top of the $3,000 already on

"Unfortunately by not direct-
ly distributing these materials
to all employees, sometimes
this may lead to misinforma-
tion and rumors that are not
accurate."
Contracts expired last Oc-


the books.
"This property has a YIis-
tory," said John Patek, .c_,e
enforcement officer. "It's just
not being managed."
Old gas station SIK
Corporation of Sarasota has
topped $3,000 in fines for the
vacant gas station property
on the island, 401 South
Tamiami Trail. Listed as a
repeat offender, the site was
hit with offensive accumula-
tions for the property haVing
overgrown vegetation and
other debris.
Because SIK is considered
a repeat offender, the owner
was fined $250 for March
9-21 even though the prop-
erty was cleaned up by last
week's code board meeting.
City staffers are working to
have the site, which is for
sale, condemned and force
owners to tear the structure
down.

U.S. 41 widening going



ahead in Nokomis


Work is expected to start this fall
and take a little less than two years.


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST
Not only the public, but
businesses throughout the
district will be pleased to
learn the problems holding
up the widening of Tamiami
Trail through Nokomis have
been resolved.
Now the prospect of a wid-
er road able to lessen the
delays and congestion of the
past few weeks seems to be
nearer. However, the antici-
pated construction period
means the new road is un-
likely to be completed for two
years, meaning conditions


will probably get worse be-
fore they get better.
The Florida Department of
Transportation confirmed the
project to widen the road to
six lanes and increase the
height of the bridges on U.S.
41 in Venice will go ahead.
The project extends from U.S.
41 Business/Bypass junction
to the Venice Confiector.
The project is currently
scheduled to be ,put out to
bid in June 2005 and the an-
ticipated start date is October
2005. The contract currently
allows the contractor 700
days to complete the project,
so the estimated completion


date will be August or Sep-
tember 2007.
The Coast Guard bridge
permit was received by last
week and Coast Guard ap-
proval for the bridge lighting
was received Tuesday, con-
firmed Marsha Birdsong,
public information specialist
for the FDOT.
The present Army Corps of
Engineers nationwide permit
expires on March 14. How-
ever, Birdsong said she met
with the Corps last week, and
its representatives confirmed
the issuance of a new nation-
wide permit would be no
problem. She expects it this
week or next week at the lat-
est. The Southwest Florida
Water Management District
has already issued its permit.

DUI cases threatened


Sloppy record keeping by law enforcement
agencies responsible for certifying the breathlyzer
may result in scores of drunk driving cases
being tossed, according to a defense attorney.


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


Scores of Venice DUI cases
could be jeopardized in a case
soon to be decided by a local
judge.
"I believe breath tests are
going to be inadmissible," at-
torney Robert Harrison said.
At issue is whether the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, the certifying
agency, and the Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office can
produce records showing to
what extent, if any, the ma-
chines may have been modi-
fied during routine repairs.
"The state can only use
unmodified breath ma-
chines," Harrison said, "but
they (SO or FDLE) can't tells
what was approved because
their record keeping stinks."
The law
Florida law states it clearly:
"(W)hen a person tested with
a machine requests it, full in-
formation concerning the test
is to be made available.
"It must necessarily follow


that when a person risks the
loss of driving privileges or
perhaps freedom based on
the use and operation of a
particular machine, full infor-
mation includes schematics
in order to determine wheth-
er the machine actually used
... is the same unmodified
model that was approved (by
FDLE) ...."
The case is being heard by
Sarasota County Judge Kim-
berly Bonner.
"Her ruling only would
apply to Venice," Harrison
said. "But I believe every
breath test in Sarasota County
is in jeopardy."
Six, seven or eight?
Harrison said the incon-
sistency of breath machines
was shown in a seminar held
last October by Orlando
attorney Stuart I. Hyman.
"He showed where he had


m mm m


Ai


actually taken the top off and
one (machine) had six resis-
tors, one had seven and one
had eight," Harrison said, "yet
they were all supposed to be
the same."
Harrison said if Bonner's
ruling follows the appellate
court's ruling, some of his
clients will have their .cases
thrown out, some will not.
Harrison said having a
breath test thrown out does
not necessarily mean the
entire DUI case is tossed.
"They often have other
evidence to prove the case,"
he said. "Some will be able
to beat the charge, others
may get a reduction in penal-
ties."
Harrison said for a first-
offense DUI .20 or higher,
authorities install a' small
breathlyzer in your car that
you have to blow into every
30 minutes.
He said that may be one
of the sanctions dropped in
a DUI sentencing.

LAW from page 1A
Unrelated to the hurricane
law, a new site debris ordi-
nance requires construction
site debris to accumulate for
no more than 14 days and
must not drift onto neighbor-
ing properties. All debris
must be completely removed
before the city will conduct


final inspections.
EPA decision delayed
A final settlement has not
been reached yet between
city officials and criminal
investigators with the U.S.
District Attorney's Office and
Environmental Protection
Agency.
Attorneys for Venice met


behind closed doors with city
council members, City At-
torney Bob Anderson and
City Manager Marty Black for
more than two hours Tuesday
to discuss settlement options.
The city manager had
hoped to release a proposed
settlement, but attorneys for
both sides continue to get
tripped up over the wording.


Neither side is elaborating on
the specifics holding up closure
of the 3-year-old investigation.
"This is a criminal investi-
gation, and we're at the mercy
of the federal government,"
Black said.
The EPA is investigating
possible forging of docu-
ments to conceal wastewater
department violations.


MOTORISTS from page 1A


when the Hatchett Creek
Bridge is up, but the light does
turn green so motorists can
cross 41 on Tampa or Venice.
But not at Miami.
"I have no idea why they
don't let you go straight there,
too," Goodson said.
Goodson said police are
getting calls when the bridges
are up that the signal is bro-
ken at Miami and people are
running the light.
Look at this!
Currently, Project 41 con-
tractor PBS&J is in charge of
the traffic signals, Johnson
said. She said she called them
after the reporter complained.


"They're going to look at
it," she said.
Johnson said PBS&J will
eventually turn traffic signal
maintenance, including tim-
ing of the lights on the island,
over to the city.
The county is in charge of
signal maintenance off-is-
land.
The clocked four-minute-
27-second red light on Miami
crossing 41 is fine for people
traveling north and south on
41 who have green. They can
go forever.
But people going east-west
on Miami trying to beat the
light are taking chances if
they ever want to get to the


other side of the street.
Outsmarting the light
Some motorists wanting to
cross the intersection and
continue on Miami have
,been observed turning right
on 41, making an immediate
U-turn, then turning right on
Miami.
One motorist waited inter-
minable minutes before de-
ciding to run the light as cars
in all directions were at a
dead stop.
The light cycled from red
to green just as the driver was
approaching the middle of
the intersection.
In other words, the timing,


of the light is causing other-
wise law abiding drivers to
risk an accident, ticket or
both.
Additionally, there are
times at that intersection
when U.S. 41 traffic is stop-
ped for a red signal while
east-west traffic on Miami
also is stopped. That means
there are no vehicles crossing
the intersection.
Then for some reason, the
light cycles for 41 traffic,
which starts moving again,
but Miami cars are still wait-
ing for their turn.

Next: How police are work-
ing to control the congestion.

organization that does good
work.
"Sherri Reynolds has been
remarkable. I can tell you she
went over and above the call
of duty to make this cam-
paign successful. We're very
appreciative.
"We have a big volunteer
base in the school system. It's
well organized that's what
it's all about. They know and
understand what we do and
that all the money goes to
programs and initiatives
within the local community,"
Brett said.
And the winners are...
McIntosh Middle School
employees contributed the
highest amount, $6,596, with
Emma E. Booker school em-
ployees contributing the sec-
ond highest amount at
$6,314.
Students contributed their
own pocket change to the
cause. They put out water
jugs in all the schools to col-
lect spare change from stu-
dents. The sign on the jugs


reads: Got change? Change
Lives! Contribute to the
United Way Fund.
Students at North Port's
Glenallen Elementary raised
the most, $2,199. Englewood
Elementary raised second
highest amount at $1,753,
with Thttle Elementary raised
the next most at $1,186.
"It's interesting to note
these are schools in great
need, and the kids raised this
amount themselves," Reyn-
olds said.
Emma. E. Booker Elemen-
tary school employees show-
ed the biggest increase in
contributions over last year,
raising an additional $1,413.
Lakeview 'Elementary
school employees were run-
ner up in this category, raising
an additional $1,104 over last
year.
"I think they did a great
job," said Brett. 'Anytime we
can acknowledge a sector of
the community for their sup-
port, we should be there say-
ing thanks for the lives
touched and changed for the
better. That's what really mat-
ters."

"but because they come and
go throughout the year we

Last July, there were 500

ducted through community
agencies, churches and mail-
ings indicated that many
families had left Sarasota
County.
"They had moved to Man-.
atee County or elsewhere,"
she said. "Those we talked to
said they could no longer
afford to live here."
Affordable housing is one
of those political issues that is
often discussed in public
forums, but has failed to gen-
erate much traction when
elected officials sit down
every year to draft budgets
and decide how taxpayers'
dollars will be spent.
The county's Housing and
CoYmmunity Development
office administers a down
payment assistance program
for about 100 families every
year, helps subsidize repairs
,for about 50 others, and offers
incentive grants to develop-


ers who build affordable
rental housing.
It may be able to provide
more when the county sells
off about 900 North Port area
lots that were seized for non-
payment of property taxes.
An estimated $9 million to
$10 million will be placed in a
land trust for the purchase of
parcels dedicated to afford-
able housing.
Sign or aberration?
How serious the county's
commitment to affordable
housing really is remains to
be seen, and the juryis admit-
tedly still out on whether the
coalition's preschool enroll-
ment drop-off rate is a sign
that working class families are
leaving or just a one-time sta-
tistical aberration.

said, "and we are all concerned.
What the staff determined is
that most of the families it
reached had moved because
they couldn't afford the hous-
ing here. We need to firm this
up. Is this real?"
The answer is critical for
Kahn and her agency, which
has been assigned the re-
sponsibility of administering
prekindergarten classes
throughout the county. A
recently adopted constitu-
tional amendment requires
preschool public education
for families that want it.
"This will increase our
annual budget by about 100
percent," she said. "There are
about 2,900 4-year-olds who
will come into the school sys-
tem next year. We estimate
that -about 70 percent of the
families will opt to have them
, enrolled in prekindergarten
classes."

Lady Indians batter up Mooney


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

It took a while for the
Venice High softball team's
bats to heat up on a cool
night, but'when they finally
came around, Cardinal
Mooney went down.
The Lady Indians cruised
to a 9-0 victory over the Lady
Cougars Tuesday night at the
Miss Sarasota Complex.

injured Mooney third base-
man Laura Gerdnic.


Venice improved to 8-1,
while Mooney leveled out at
5-5.
The Lady Indians had
several stars. Pitching-wise,
Heather Laird fired a two-hit-
ter and struck out seven in
improving her personal rec-
ord to 5-0.
Offensively, Carly Brown-
field led the way with a triple,
double and single and two
RBIs. Others in the swing of
things were Mandy Simon,,
who had three singles;
Courtney Bennett, who had,
three singles good for two
RBIs; Felicia Taylor, who had
a two-run single; and Amber
Davidson, who had a line
shot single that drove in a
run.
During the preseason Dia-
mond Classic at Sarasota
High, the Lady Indians bop-
ped Mooney 22-0. While it
was a bit better for the Lady
Cougars this time, Venice
once again showed it was
the dominant team.
"You can never take
Mooney lightly," Venice
coach Amy Kanter said. "It's
a local rivalry."
Venice only had four hits
and two unearned runs over
the first four innings off
Cougar pitcher Kim Welch. A


six-run fifth inning broke the
game wide open.
Brittany Hipple led off
reaching on an error and
Simon followed with her sec-
ond hit of the night. Davidson
then sent a screamer off the
Mooney third baseman to
score Hipple. Brownfield
boomed a double to right-
center scoring Simon and
Davidson, .making it 5-0.
Bennett drove in Brownfield
with a single. Laird reached
on an error. Felicia Taylor
stroked a two-run single to
make it 8-0.
Bennett had another RBI
single in the sixth.
Venice's Krista Schuett
threw an inning of scoreless
relief for Mooney.
Venice's junior varsity and
varsity are scheduled to play
at Naples Wednesday. The
Venice Junior Varsity Tourn-
ament is Friday and Saturday
at the Foxworthy Complex.
The varsity's next home game
is Tuesday against Sarasota.

Venice High wrestling
wrapped up another out-
standing campaign with a
second-place showing in the
Class 2A State Tournament
held in Lakeland.
The Indians had an indi-
vidual champion in junior
189-pounder Jeremie Cook.
Senior 171-pounder Zach
Gaudreau was third. Junior
140-pounder Brett Nelson
was fourth. Senior Matt Ross-
heim (119) and sophomore
Keith Koziel (130) were each
fifth.
While Venice will lose a lot
to graduation from the 2005
team, coach Dan Kelly has
three cornerstone wrestlers,
returning Cook, Nelson
and Koziel.
Seniors who will be
missed include Gaudreau,
Rossheim, Cory Rittenhouse
(103), Ricky Heil (152),
Randy Re (160) and Viktor
Vasilevskiy (215).
"I think we're going to be,
fine," Kelly said. "We, have
three state players coming
back. We have a good heavy-
weight. We have a lot of solid
sophomores."
State qualifier Anthony
Saputo will return for his
senior season at heavyweight.


STAFF REPORT ,

Former Venice High wrest-
ling standout Levi Duyn will
be heading to the NCAA
Championships in St. Louis
after taking gold in the 149-.

Duyn, who
was seeded Duyn
third entering

over Davidson's Ben Graham.


Sophomores who will be
stronger with more offseason
work include Gabe Rodriguez
(112), Tyler Spann (125),
Trevor Goodin (130) and John
Hodge (145). They could all
bounce up a weight.
Kelly will also draw from
an unbeaten junior varsity
team. Moving up into the
top slots could be guys like

Sharks compete in 2005 Championships


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

*Area youngsters, compet-
ing for two of the 32 teams
entered, were among the top
performers at the 2005 Senior
Swimming Championships
in Sarasota last weekend.
Seth Clayton of Venice
and Chelsea Gillespie of Eng-
lewood swam for the Sarasota
YMCA Sharks, which finished
third in the three-day meet.
The team was coached by
Larry Shoaf, an Osprey resi-
dent.
Mary Ellen Koran, Brynn
Morrow, Nicole Ready and
Danny Claude, all of Engle-
wood, represented the Gulf
Coast Swim Team, whose
swimmers also hail from Port
Charlotte, Punta Gorda and
Fort Myers.
The meet was sanctioned
by Florida Swimming Inc.,
which conducts 12 each year
throughout the state. Last
weekend's meet involved 353
girls and boys 12 to 19 years
of age. Teams came from
Jacksonville and Tallahassee
in the north to Naples in the


south, northeast to Lakeland
and many points within a
lopsided geographical pen-
tagon.
Shoaf, who coached the
Bolles School team in Jack-
sonville for 22 years, the win-
ner of the 2005 meet, has
coached national teams from
* 11 countries and two U.S.
Olympics teams. He said that
youngsters from abroad have
a high work ethic in their
swimming.
"They want to come to this
country, compete, do well
and qualify to study at an
American university. Our kids
don't have the same motiva-
tion, but this meet I've only
been here since last fall -
showed me how hard kids
from here work to improve
their skills and their times,"
he said.
Competing for the Sharks,
Clayton finished among the
top scorers in all his events.
They included the 100- and
200-yard butterfly, 200- and
400-yard individual medley,
100- and 200-yard breast
stroke and the 400-yard
freestyle relay, in which he


was the leadoff swimmer.
Gillespie finished 12th or
higher in all her races. She
was seventh in the 50-yard
freestyle for 15-16-year-olds.
Her other races were the 100-
yard breast stroke, 100-yard
backstroke, 100-yard freestyle,
100-yard butterfly and the
400-yard freestyle relay, all for
15-16-year-olds.
Jeff Kane, coach of the
Englewood component of the
Gulf Coast Swim Team, called
this year's Englewood group
"certainly our strongest." Eng-
lewood joined the overall
team in 2001.
"I know this is the best I've
ever done in my seven years
.with Gulf Coast," said Morrow,
a high school sophomore who
hopes to swim competitively
as a college student.
She swam in eight events,
including relays, finishing
among the top scorers in all
her races. They included the
100-, 200-, 500- and 1650-yard
freestyle for 15-16-year-olds,
the 200-, 500- and 1000-yard
open freestyles and the 400-
and 800-yard freestyle relays.
Claude, who also swims


for the Florida Atlantic Uni-
versity team, was the group's
workhorse. He swam in 14
preliminary and final races
over the three days. They
included the 200- and 400-
yard individual medleys, 100-
and 200-yard breast stroke,
100-yard backstroke, and the
400- and 800-yard freestyle
relays. His top finishes were
a fifth and a sixth.
Koran, who has qualified
for national meets, competed
in open and 15-16-year-old
events in the 50-yard free-
style, 100-yard backstroke,
200-yard freestyle, 100-yard
butterfly and the 400- and
.800-yard freestyle relays. She
anchored their 800-yard team,
and swam in the second
position for the 400.
Ready led off the 800-yard
freestyle relay team, and com-
peted in the open 200-yard
freestyle and the 200- and
500-yard freestyle for 15-16-
year-olds.

FIRST ,,


The first three years of
AAU wrestling were trying, to
say the least.
"I didn't win a match," he
recalled. "I would cry. Coach
Pat (Ryan) would say, 'That's
all right buddy, keep trying'."
Gaudreau weighed close
to 215 pounds by the time
he was about to enter Venice
High.
"I cut to 160 pounds," he
said. "I lost my baby fat. I ac-
tually started winning some
matches."
By his sophomore season,
Gaudreau had built up some
confidence. He finished
19-17 at 171 pounds.
"I lost two in a row at dis-
tricts," he recalled. "I set a
goal to qualify for the state
tournament as a junior. That
summer, I had fun during
weekdays but wresded (AAU
tournaments) on weekends.
At die end of the summer, I
knew I was better."
Gaudreau opened eyes
with a fine record at 160
pounds. He made the state
tournament, but went two
and out.
"Coach Pat took time with
me over the summer," Zach
said. "He forced me to shoot
more and go for takedowns. I
gained more intensity."
Gaudreau was back up to
171 pounds. He beat every-
one he faced but Craig. The
first loss was at the Ippolito
Tournament. The second in

Classifieds = Success'


the state semis.
Gaudreau defeated George
Keyzer of Port St. Lucie 3-1 for
third place. He also defeated
Keyzer, who was second at
171 in 2004, in the quarterfi-
nals.
"It's tough to come back
and finish third;" Venice
coach Dan Kelly said. "You've
lost and you're down. You've
got to get yourself back up
and perform. It shows true
character."
Gaudreau is hoping to go
to the Senior Nationals in
Cleveland.
"You usually have to finish
in the top two," Gaudreau

Red tide lingering off



Southwest Florida

The bloom that started in December is refusing

to dissipate, annoying beachgoers from


Bradenton to Naples.


BY RACHEL ALEXANDER
STAFF WRITER

It's almost spring, and
there are blooms all over the
place.
Except the blooms aren't
going to turn into beautiful
flowers. They're algae blooms,
the ones known as red tide.
According to Nadine Sli-
mak, spokesperson for, Mote
Marine Laboratory, a red tide
bloom that started in Tampa
in late December is moving
very slowly south..
"It's generally moving in a
southerly direction, not too
fast," Slimak said. "It kind of
depends on strong winds
from the north to move it
faster, but winds have been so
variable, it's not doing much."
Now the oceanic occur-
rence, the cause of which is
still unknown, stretches from
Bradenton Beach as far south
to Vanderbilt Beach near
Naples and extends off shore
as far as 30 miles in this area.
Although some residents
are concerned the tide has
been around far too long,
Slimak said it's not an espe-
cially unusual time frame for
red tide to last.
According to Slimak, a red
tide bloom occurrence in
1996 lasted 18 months.
"That precipitated the or-
ganization of START," Slimak
said. "Solutions to Avoid Red
Tide."
The bloom season for red
tide, Slimak said, is generally
August through October.


"But we had a red tide the
same time last year," she said.
"It's not unheard of (to occur
at this time of year.)"

How to cope
Since mid-January, Slimak
said, area residents have been
experiencing the effects of the
toxin created by red tide,
which are moderate to high
from Sarasota Bay south.
Betty Staugler, marine ex-
tension agent for Charlotte
County Environmental and
Extension Services, said the
toxin causes fish kills.
"It will accumulate in the
tissues of certain species,"
Staugler said. "They're bring-
ing the toxin through the
gills."
People generally get respi-
ratory irritation, but it's usual-
ly temporary, Staugler said.
"Toxins are carried
through the air with the
wind," she said. "It can be
through the nose, eyes can
itch, and you might cough.
With people, it will generally
disappear within 24 hours."
Someone with a chronic
respiratory problem, like em-
physema or asthma, might
have a more long-term effect.
Jim Sproul, director of
marketing and development
for Englewood Community
Hospital, said the hospital has
seen more visits from people
complaining of problems
related to red tide.
"There has been increased
cases of pulmonary and res-
piratory problems due to red

tide," Sproul said Monday.
"Definitely, activity is up."
Mote Marine Laboratory's
Web site, mote.org, has some
suggestions for avoiding red
tide:
Keep your windows
closed, the air conditioning or
heat on, and check and
change the unit's filter period-
ically.
Check the marine fore-
cast. Fewer red tide toxins will
be in the air with offshore
winds.
If you are asthmatic or
have chronic lung disease, be
vigilant about taking your
prescribed medicines daily.
Always seek medical care
if your symptoms worsen.

Committee wants independent


study of school referendum


Celebrating Read Across America Day


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Attendance was sparse for
the inaugural meeting of
Taxpayers for Better Schools,
but that didn't dampen the
enthusiasm of co-chair Norm
Lupo, who called for an inde-
pendent analysis of the 2002
school tax referendum.
TBS, a newly formed edu-
cation committee of the Ven-
ice Taxpayers League, met
March 7 in Venice City Hall's
community center.
Chief on the mind of Lupo
was proposed legislation that
would allow school boards to
ask voters for lengthier school
tax referendums, something
he opposes. Lupo reviewed
HB 613, a bill introduced in
the Florida Legislature to do
just that, calling it the No. 1
issue facing the county's
already overburdened taxpay-
ers.
"Before the Sarasota Coun-
ty School Board embarks on
another referendum, or ex-


SCOPE

releases 4th

annual report

BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

You can learn a lot about
life in Sarasota County by
reading the fourth annual
community report card by
Sarasota County Openly
Plans for Excellence. Consider
the following findings:
Did you know that stu-
dents who are white, black
and Hispanic all saw their
reported dropout rates fall in
2004? The rate for whites fell 3
percent, blacks 43 percent,
and Hispanics 30 percent.
At $185,000; the median
price for single family home
salesWas 17 percent greater in
2004 than in 2003, the biggest
single-year jump yet. Addi-
tionally, the number of home
sales under $150,000 decreas-
ed 10 percent in 2004 while
sales over $150,000 increased
40 percent. Sales of houses
over, $225,000 increased al-
most 50 percent.
The 2004 election was a
big deal in Sarasota County as
well as in the rest of the coun-
try, according to the SCOPE
report. A record 65 percent of
the voting age population
turned out, compared with 60
percent in the last presiden-
tial election, higher than state
and national rates.
But fewer candidates are
seeking office. Sarasota Coun-
ty saw a 52 percent drop in
candidates vying for city and
county elected seats. In Ven-
ice, the number of candidates
vying for positions appears to
be trending downward, ac-
cording to SCOPE.
The percentage of local
elected offices held bywomen
tends to be about 40 percent..
The exceptions are Venice and
Longboat Key, which tend to
have about 15 percent of
offices occupied by women.
Almost 40 percent of
Sarasota County adults vol-
unteer some of their time to
needy causes. Twenty-three
percent of adults reported
volunteering one-five hours .
per week.
Part of the story
The 150-page report in-
cludes "indicators" reflecting
trends across many facets of
community life. Easy-to-read
data and graphics show what
changes have taken place
since last year in the areas of
civic participation, culture
and recreation, economy,
health and medical care,
learning, natural environ-
ment, social environment
and transportation.
Indicators are bits of infor-


mation gathered annually
that tell stories about the
place in which we live. They
don't provide a comprehen-
sive illustration of an issue,
but rather, tell one important
part of the story, according to
SCOPE.


tends the existing one mill
levy," Lupo told the six in
attendance, "I'd like to see an
outside, independent analy-
sis of the 2002 referendum.
"We need a truly indepen-
dent organization to analyze
the referendum and give a
report to the community. I'd
advocate for SCOPE," Lupo
said, referring to Sarasota
County Openly Plans for
Excellence, a nonprofit orga-
nization. "I have faith in
SCOPE. They have done
nothing but excellent work
over the years."
The Venice Taxpayers
League will consider the
request at a future meeting.
"It's been my experience
that enough is never enough
when it comes to education
taxes," Lupo said.
He called the use of refer-
endums a Band-Aid ap-
proach driven by inadequate
education funding.


"What we need is better
education funding," Lupo
said.
"If they could promise a
better education than we're
already getting for the money,
then I'd tax myself," said
Venice resident John Lewis,
who is also skeptical of
lengthier millage terms. "We
want better education, not a
cheaper education that takes
even more money to pro-
vide."
For Elizabeth Cuevas-
Neunder, co-chair of TBS, the
meeting was an answer, to
their prayers. The education
committee had been having
difficulty finding a place to
meet, she said. Piggybacking
on meetings of the Venice
Taxpayers League solved the
problem.

Brush fire burns 12 acres in North Port


The impact of last
year's hurricanes will
continue to be felt this
fire season, as downed
trees provide fuel and
make it harder to get to
areas that are burning.


BY RENEE LEPERE
STAFF WRITER
A small brush fire claimed
12 acres in an undeveloped
area of North Port Monday
afternoon.
"It's pretty much under
control at this point," said
Capt. Rick Gamber, North


Port Fire Rescue.
Charlotte County sent an
engine to help contain the fire
in an unpopulated area off
Yorkshire Boulevard, not far
from the Charlotte County
border. The Division of
Forestry is investigating the
fire.
NPFR Chief William Taaffe


This tree, which according to the North Port Fire Department was damaged by the hurricanes,
still had some fire left in it as it burned along a side street off Yorkshire Boulevard.

said both the weather and
Hurricane Charley will make
fighting brush fires this time
of year a challenge.
"We've had some rain, and
that's a help," Taaffe said. "But
we've also had some dry,
windy days, too."
The toppled trees left from
Hurricane Charley in August
also make putting fire breaks
more difficult, Taaffe said.
The dry conditions will
also cause a fire to smolder for
a lot longer.

will smoke for a few days,"
Lt. Barry King, NPFR, said.
"If we don't, it will smoke for
weeks."

OUR VIEW



Changes called for in charter officer search


V enice City Council member John
Simmonds met with the Gondolier Sun
editorial board recently to argue the
case for making the city's finance director a
regular employee under the city manager
instead of a charter officer.
While Simmonds didn't win any converts,
we'll concede that making the change would
have some benefits, and it certainly wouldn't
be a catastrophe if voters approved it, assum-
ing it ever came to a vote. For now, though
our position remains the same an inde-
pendent finance director provides a check on
the power of the city manager, and if it ain't
broke, don't fix it.
There is something that appears to be bro-
ken here, though the process by which
charter officers are appointed. We hope
Simmonds and his fellow council members
will agree and push for changes.
Currently the power to name charter offi-
cers lies solely with the mayor. Such appoint-


ments are made with council's consent, but
not necessarily with their involvement. A
case in point is the search for a new finance
director.
Mike McPhail retired from the position last
summer after giving several months notice. A
replacement was found, but he left after a few
weeks citing his inability to sell his house up
north. The job has been vacant ever since,
and Mayor Dean Calamaras doesn't expect to
name a new finance director for some weeks.,
That bothers us for several reasons. First,
leaving a charter position open that long isn't
good for the department or the city. Lead-
ership is needed especially at budget time
- and an acting director just isn't the same as
a full-time, permanent department head.
Joanne Lounsbury has been doing a capa-
ble job filling in, but, as the department is
shorthanded, some things have fallen by the
wayside regular reports at council meet-
ings, for example. And while City Manager


Marty Black has many strengths, budgeting is
not his field of expertise, as it was for George
Hunt. Filling the position in the middle of the
budgeting process also puts the new finance
director behind a learning curve that already
would have been pretty steep.
Second, the hiring process to this point
appears to have been poorly handled. The
opening was advertised and more than 40
people applied for the job,, but Calamaras
didn't interview anyone, stating no one met
the city's standards. In fact, as we reported,
many of them did, while Lounsbury, then a
leading candidate, did not have the paper
credentials.
Now the city plans to advertise the job
again but, on the recommendation of the
Florida League of Cities, at a higher salary.
The increase won't make a big dent in the
budget. but we're not convinced the city
couldn't have had a quality finance director
from the people who applied at the original


salary.
Third, since charter officers serve at the
pleasure of council, all the council members
should participate in their selection. Now
they have as much or as little involvement as
the mayor allows, which strikes us as a failure
to take advantage of valuable resources.
We asked Simmonds, who served many
years as mayor of Winter Haven, how ap-
pointments were made there. He said he
would create a short list of five or 10 top can-
didates, then all the council members would
interview them and do whatever other inves-
tigation they felt appropriate. They would
come to a council meeting with their choices
ranked and the best candidate by consensus
would be named to the position.
Obviously that wouldn't speed up the pro-
cess, but we think sacrificing speed for. col-
laboration on matters like this is a good deal.
Next we'll 'fix' how board vacancies are
filled.


Venice may never


look the same


Everyone should know
how high 44 feet is. Frankly, I
was shocked and very con-
cerned when. I actually went
to see othOe'buildings of that
height and pictured one in
the ;middle of the shops on
West Venice Avenue.
Forty-four feet is the magic
number' that determines the
downtown's future. .1 hope
many citizens and members
of city council will take a few
minutes to look at something
44 feet tall and judge whether
they want to see an exception
to the zoning code to allow a
44-foot-tall building in what
City Manager Marty Black has
called "a critical area."
The picture accompanying
this column is of a building -4.
feet 8 inches tall, according to
planning department docu-
ments. Now, this building in
not shaped like the one pro-
posed forWest Venice Avenue,
but is essentially the same
height. To judge for yourself,
drive down Plaza Mayor at
Emmanuel Lutheran Church.
The building is at the end of
the street.


The problem the city faces
came about because the
planning commission grant-
ed a 9-foot height exception
over the 35-foot limit for a
proposed building at 215-217
W. Venice Ave. That exception
has been appealed and coun-
cil will decide the issue. Your
views can make a difference
and need to be expressed.
The. proposed exception
opens the door for every


building owner along West
Venice Avenue to ask for sim-
ilar consideration.
In addition to creating a
negative precedent, the
building proposed is out ,of
scale with downtown. It will
be the tallest building onWest
Venice Avenue, even taller
than the Bank of America.
Most of the retail buildings
are one story, some with sev-
eral feet of roof-line rising
above the first floor, but con-
siderably lower than the few
two-story buildings.
For an exception to be
granted the proposal must
provide benefit to .the com-
munity and be compatible
,with its neighbors. This, pro-
posal fails both tests.
It can be argued that apart-
ments on a second floor or
higher, within the zoning lim-
it, will bring additional busi-
ness to downtown. Even ac-
cepting that premise, there is
no justification for jumping to
four stories, which is clearly
incompatible with a predom-
inantly one-story district.
The proposed building has
advocates, who point out the
four-story building will not
rise to 44 feet along the street
but will be stepped back on
each floor, so that it will not
appear as massive. While that
design mitigates the impact
to a degree, the total building
will be very obvious to every-
one driving or walking along
the Centennial Park side of
the street, or, for that matter,
standing two doors away.
Using the doors of the
nearby retail stores as a guide,
(the doors are about 7 'feet
high), the Venice Stationers
building is a low building,
about 14 feet tall. The new
building would be about
three times higher. The Col-
lectors Gallery building is tall-
er, perhaps 20 feet, and so its
44-foot neighbor would be
more than twice its height.
There are four two-story
buildings on the block, in-
cluding the building at 219, a
neighbor that is about 21 feet
at its peak. The El Patio's
peaked roofs, by my estimate,
rise 25 feet from the sidewalk.
A building of 35 feet, as al-
'lowed under the zoning code
at present, would still rise 10
or more feet higher than its
two-story neighbors.
Note that if the exception is
denied, the 35-foot limit
would still allow three full sto-
ries, one floor for two stores, a
second floor for two condo-
miniums and a third floor for
a large condominium for the
owners, which could be es-
sentially the size of the two
second-floor units combined.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


City should do more to raise attendance


Editor:
Council member John Simmonds' frustration with the low
public turnout at the downtown workshop is certainly under-
standable, and I fully concur. However, much of the responsi-
bility lies right there at city hall.
I'm sure that if more information regarding the meeting,
such as the cost of the study and the importance of public
input, were prominently published well in advance the public
would have shown much more interest. Happened to attend
after hearing about the possibility of one-way streets, but Idid-
n't expect a workshop inviting public input nor did I expect a
thorough presentation containing so many visual displays of
various solutions to choose from.
I fault city staff for this oversight; we have a well-paid public
information officer who should have seen to the appropriate
advertisement of this important and expensive workshop well
in advance. i
I hope the workshop will be repeated very soon, as major
changes could occur most people will not like. I, for one, am
not in favor of changing to one-way streets.
Can you visualize Venice Avenue traffic reduced from four to
two lanes to accommodate a few more parking spaces set at an
angle? And Miami and Tampa avenues reduced to one lane each?
Get involved and make your views known.

Griping about
fish reference

Editor:
I am writing as chair of the
Committee on Social Justice
of Venice of Lodge 2747 of the
Order Sons of Italy in Amer-
ica, to protest the allusion to
the organized crime film "The'
Godfather" in the March 2
issue of the Venice Gondolier
Sun.,
The story's second para-
graph, in referring to the
washed-on-shore goliath
grouper characterized its
presence as "more than an
ominous Sicilian sign."
Those of us who remem-
ber the movie saw immedi-
ately the connection to the
"sleep with the fish" scene


and after wondering what
was the intent behind the
subliminal message being
propounded concluded that,
once again, Italian-Amer-
icans, and Siciliansin particu-
lar, were being victimized by
biased, insensitive and igno-
rant, at best, negative stereo-
typical symbols.
Are your readers aware
that the U.S. Justice Depart-
ment estimates there are only
some 5,000 people involved
in organized crime? Hardly a
basis for justifying the stereo-
type that organized crime
means Italian descendants.
Further, the 2000 U.S. Cen-
sus reveals that Italian-Amer-
icans are the nation's fourth
largest European ancestry
group after Germans, Irish


and English; that the median
income of Italian Americans
is $11,300 above the national
median; that 66 percent of
Italian-Americans are em-
ployed in a white-collar posi-'
tion, 2 points above the na-
tional average; and that their
educational achievements
exceeds the national percent-
ages for high school, college
and master's degree comple-
tions while matching the
national average for profes-
sional degrees.
We certainly don't need an-
other negative stereotypical
symbol, and hope you will in-
struct your staff to exercise due
care in the use of stereotypes.

Editor:
I believe in freedom of reli-
gion, but I believe in my right
not to have to submit to other
people's religious beliefs as well.
Today is the eighth time in
the last three years I have
asked a carload of "believers"
to leave my property.
Jehovah's Witnesses have
no respect for my beliefs or
personal property, as I have
asked them very nicely many
times to not bother to come
back. Neither of the churches
in this area has an answering
machine on its phone so you
can call to ask them to stop,
visiting your home. So I drove
down and posted a letter on
their bulletin board asking
them to stop visiting us.
Now, they have visited
twice this month to make
sure I didn't "die, or move on,"


as they said, and the new peo-
ple might want to lknow their
message. They told me to post,
a note on my gate (which they
open and come through any-
way): "No Jehovah's Witnesses."
This is not acceptable, and I
shouldn't be inconvenienced
because they want to "sell"
their way of thinking to me.
I think door-to-door sales-
people regardless of what'
they are selling should not
returnif requestednot to do so.
This is the only means I
have of venting. Maybe the
ministers of the local church-
es will encourage a more re-
'spectable way of bringing
sheep into their flocks.

to England from my second
annual February vacation in
Englewood, I would like to
thank the many regular ten-

As a regular, year-round, 71-

LANE ROAD AND TAMPA AND MIAMI AVENUES ONE-WAY TO ADD
PARKING DOWNTOWN? CALL 207-1111.


Give older drivers a break


Join the club. In answer to Stuck Again, I am sorry people are
allowed to get old but I don't think one would actually set fire
to a car to hold up traffic, or purposely have an accident. It
seems that over the years younger people would sooner kick
the old out of the way or take them to the pound to have them
put to sleep like some old mutt. I served my country in World
War II. I was a POW. I have some ribbon trinkets. But with these
in today's society I just might get a cup of coffee and a dough-
nut for a buck fifty. Too bad I won't be around to say to you,
Welcome to the club. I feel I have earned some rights. That's the
Old Geezers Club, I'm talking about. And when you join, good
luck.


Quarter back. I'm calling
about shopping carts. If they
had a system where it would
cost a quarter to take the cart
and you return it and get your
quarter, like they do at the air-
port, they wouldn't be in park-
ing places taking up space and
rolling into parked cars. I see
people walk past them and
won't even take carts back
when they go into the store,
and they take another cart.
Unsigned. There are no
directional signs on Business
41 to direct people to the
emergency room of our hos-
pital ever since the construc-
tion happened. That's an acci-
dent waiting to happen. We
need to get some signs up.
Inconvenienced. We would
appreciate if the Gondolier
Sun printing days could be on
Monday, Wednesday and Fri-
day. It's totally inconvenienc-
ing us with the competition of
the papers the way you are
doing it. We do not have any


question in our minds that we
will discontinue our paper
when the present subscrip-
tion expires.
Point missed. Venice City
Council, the city manager, the
administrative services direc-
tor and even the city manager
have missed the point. The
city has insurance coverage to
pay the expenses incurred in
the ethics complaints brought
by Gary Anderson. Those ex-
penses can be recouped from
the city's insurance company
since the city has met the
deductible for the year. All the
city has to do is to put the
claims into the insurance
company and those funds for
George Hunt, John Lane and
the three that have been
acquitted and they will be
reimbursed. And the city's
insurance will subrogate the
claim against Gary Anderson
and there's no need for the
city attorney to go filing a law-
suit to recoup the money.

that anyone who has worked in

has as much ability to manage

Mixed up. Drivers in down-

car enter Business 41 from

commerce going south in the

waiting to happen.
CQBA. I'm wondering what
the good old boys of the gov-
ernment of Venice think
about the title one man gave
it: Citizens for Quality Bank

over that one. It's really very,
very fitting. And about the
buildings on Venice Avenue:

Editor:
I was just reading your arti-
cle on backflow valves for the
lucky residents in the city of
Venice. Seeing as how I live in
South Venice, I will not cur-
rently be blessed with one of
those valves.
The thought comes to
mind if there is a worse way to
implement this backflow val-
ue, I have not heard of it.
If the power company said
everyone has to install and
pay for their power meter and
once year payto have it test-
ed and prove that it meets its
standards, there would be a
well deserved revolt.
The city could change all
the water meters, adding the
backflow valve on the new
meters, and have a simple test
procedure it could do on its
schedule. That would cost the
people less and be a much
better way of doing it.
Other possible methods: 1)
add the valves where the pipe
comes off the main; 2) add the
valve anywhere in the line
before the property line; 3) do
anything that is more profes-
sional and benefits the people.
The only possible reason
they would use the current
plan is if council wants to cost
the people the most money
and someone is in favor of giv-
ing the plumbers in the area a
lot of extra work I would find
the persons that came up with
this idea and give them a rest.

BY RENEE LEPERE
STAFF WRITER


A North Port man accused
of firing four shots into a
Chevron gas station following
an argument with another
customer was acquitted Feb.
24 by reason of insanity.
Judge Andrew Owens, 12th
Judicial Circuit Court, made
the ruling. A jury was not pre-
sent because the evidence
was not in dispute.
Larry Smith, 35, was
charged with attempted sec-
ond-degree murder, aggra-
vated assault with a deadly
weapon, firing a weapon into
a dwelling and resisting an
officer with violence and bat-
tery.
Assistant public defender
Jerry Meisner argued that
Smith was insane at the time
of the crime because he was
"involuntarily intoxicated"
due to an adverse reaction to
a prescribed anti-depressant.
Experts Dr. Robert Aver-
buch, faculty member of the
University of Florida's psychi-
atric department, and Dr.
James McGovern testified on
Smith's behalf.
'"A small percentage of the
population will have this
reaction to, the medication,"


Meisner said. "And Mr. Smith
had a head injury years ago
that made him even more
susceptible to a bad reac-
tion."
Smith was arrested Nov. 4,
2003, after he opened fire at
the Chevron gas station on
Tamiami Trail following an
argument with a customer.
Back to normal
According to a North Port
Police Department report,
Smith grabbed the male cus-
tomer by the throat and
pushed him against the door.
The victim then ran around
the front of the building while
Smith reportedly grabbed a
gun from his pickup truck,
which was parked at one of
the pumps.
Smith allegedly shot into
the locked bulletproof glass
door, the rounds lodged in
the glass. Smith ran around to
the other side of the store, but
a clerk managed to lock that
door as well.
Police subdued Smith with
pepper spray before he was
transported by ambulance to
Venice Memorial Hospital for
an evaluation. He was later
booked into the South
County Jail on the aforemen-
tioned charges, all felonies.


Meisner said Smith was at
the gas station to meet EMS
workers. He had called 9-1-1
claiming he was disoriented.
"If you listen to the 9-1-1
tapes, you can hear he is just
totally out of it," Meisner said.
Smith could have faced a
minimum 20 year-sentence
for committing an armed
crime under the state's "10,
20, life" law.
He was released from the
Sarasota County Jail in
December on $50,000 bond
and will be on court supervi-
sion.
"He has been out of cus-
tody for a year now and it has
been uneventful since he was
taken off the medication,"
Meisner said. "He had never
been in trouble with the law
before. His life returned to
normal as soon as he was off
the drug. I think this had the
correct ending."

began to appear in 2003, they
initially got around that provi-
sion because of a weakness in
the county codes.


When word got out that
redemption prizes worth well
in excess of what is allowed
under the law were being rou-

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
Spolishing 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 metal 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.

The Consolidated B-24 Liberator was known as the "Bald Eagle" during World War II when it was flown by pilots such as Lawrence W. Smith Jr.


BY LAWERENCE J. SMITH JR. GUEST WRITER


Haunted by the memory of a fel-
low pilot lost at sea during World
War II, a Venice resident tracks
the man's full name and service
record while writing a tribute to a man he
knew only as "Jonesy."


I first met Tonesy at an air
base in Tucson, Ar iz.
We were in the same bar-
racks and flew the same type
of airplane.
Our many common inter-
ests included the temptations
of Tucson. Although only a
few miles away, Tucson was
not as easily accessible for
some as it was for Jonesy and
me. Nearly every evening,
while long queues of moan-
inig men stood berating the
overcrowded facilities, Jonesy
and I simply waited for one of
his many girlfriends to appear
in a car mysteriously fueled
with precious rationed gaso-


line.
Jonesy seemed shaped in a
different mold. He was an
outlander, sequestered from
the rest of us. He not only had
a tremendous impact on
women, but on everybody.
Jonesy's secret was the sum
total of his many attributes.
Love of life, positive demean-
or, and his charisma were but
a part of his charm. He also
had looks dark hair and
flashing jet black eyes that
contrasted with his fair skin.
We had a great time to-
gether in Tucson. Keeping
pace \\ith him was wearing
and tearing. A human dyn a-

craft (military and civilian) of all time.


mo, Jonesy partied at night
and flew planes during the
day, averaging about three or
four hours of sleep at night.
He lived every waking mo-
ment, almost as though oper-
ating on borrowed time.
On one occasion, when
receiving a special and well-
deserved commendation
from a general who thought
he was the best pilot in the
squadron, Jonesy went on a
two-day spree. Though with-
out sleep for those two days,
he still seemed fresh by the
third day unruffled and
pleasant.
Finally, the Army decided
to send us overseas. I guess
they thought we needed a
rest.
\\hen we arrived at Pan-
tanella Airbase, near Bari,
Italy, we learned that we
would spend our first two
weeks flying practice mis-.
sions and "building our hous-
es." They presented us with
tents and told us to "build."
This was when we first
learned the meaning of the
word "scarcity." We had to
manufacture stoves, fabricate
doors, lay floors, and so on,
but no one knew where to get
the materials. It took months
before the fellows in my tent
were able to make our quar-
ters barely livable. But
lonesy's crew had a veritable
mansion, which it had com-
pleted in just a couple of days.
I learned that several high-
ranking officers, seasoned
\TPs who lived in another tent
city across the valley, had
returned from a patriotic mis-
sion to Germany one fine day
to find their happy homes
suddenly stripped of most of
their valuable furniture. A
search party found nothing.
lonesy's clever alterations,
which included painting and
reshaping furniture, had
modified the household fur-
nishings' look to a point
where it looked even more
original.
When we began to fly our
first missions into enemy ter-
ritory, I thought lonesy might
cease his nightly adventures
in the nearby city of Bari. but
that was not' to be. Jonesy
loved to fly but he also loved
ladies, lights and liquor.
I went along on several of
Jonesy's escapades to Bari,
and it was always exciting to
be in his company. He always
had good-looking girls lined
up. There was certainly no

woman shortage when I was
with Jonesy.
One night we were sitting
in the officers' club in Bari
when Jonesy glanced at a
newspaper story that said
"everything but the kitchen
sink" had been dropped on
Berlin. With his deep Geor-
gian drawl, Jonesy casually
mentioned that he had an
idea but he did not elaborate.
A few days later, newspaper
articles all over Europe men-
tioned that; an unknown
bomber had dropped "every-
thing including the kitchen
sink" on Vienna. Jonesy had
requisitioned a latrine sink,
carried it to the target and had,
the flight engineer throw it
out with the bombs.
Many targets gave me the
shudders, but the one that
scared me the most was
Blechhammer, a railroad yard
near the Polish border. The
last time i saw Jonesy was at
the Blechhammer briefing.
We had been getting the
metro weather and various
other statistics when a great
hush suddenly came over the
room. The commanding offi-


cer told us we were going to
Blechhammer. He did not
mince words as to the danger.
we would face. He implied
that veryfew of us would be
returning.
Fear, gloom and uncertain-
ty could be seen in every face,
except one lonesy's.
He had been quietly hum-
ming an Italian folksong he
heard the night before in Bari
when the ominous an-
nouncement was made.i
Without losing a beat, he
continued humming.' With
'merriment in his eyes and a.
laugh in his voice he turned to
me and said, "It's a darn pity
that only you and I will be
coming back."
He was wrong. Jonesy got it
the following day after a mis-
sion to Regensburg.
He tried to bring his four-
engine bomber back across
the Adriatic on two engines
and a low supply of gasoline.
A British ship reported that he
had done a great job of ditch-
ing his plane, but the rough
water and the cumbersome

Venice's favorite plant:

The exquisite desert rose


CAROL MOZIK
(iAPDI 't COLUMNIST

It all started late last sum-
mer. You see, our receptionist
here at the Venice Gondolier
Sun, Treva, and I try to go to
garage sales on our lunch
hour most Fridays. We usual-


ly try to stick to the island,
but we sometimes venture
out to other areas of Venice.
Treva has taken me places I
never knew existed. She also
knows I have a passion for
gardening. On our ventures,
I have been known to pick
up decorative pots, hoes,
anything gardening related,
we've even been known to
haul back an 8-foot varie-
gated ficus tree in the trunk
of my car. Talk about heavy!
It was on one of these
adventures that I first noticed
Venice's love for the desert
.rose. Last summer, one home
in Venice Gardens had 26 (I
counted them, 26) pots gor-
geously displayed in a semi-
circle, right out in their front
yard. The desert rose (aden-
ium obesum) is one of the
best and easiest to grow of
tropical flowering plants.

Plant. them in your favorite
decorative pot, and presto,
you have a unique, easy-to-
take-care-of flowering plant.
They are almost a natural
"bonsai," considered a suc-
culent, and in the frangipani,
plumeria family. If you're
new to Florida gardening,
this would make a beautiful
start for any tropical garden,
and it will flower almost
year-round.


Pictured here is my Hur-
ricane Charley ravaged desert
rose received as a gift, tucked
into my $8 garage sale Aztec
clay pot. I filled it with six
crushed aluminum cans (a
hint from ECHO of Fort
IMyers; in summer heat, the
water reservoirs in the crush-
ed cans hold moisture in
the soil.) Next, I added a
good potting soil (you can
add some sand), making


sure I left the gnarled base of
the desert rose a tad above
ground level. I finished by
adding a pelletized, slow-
release fertilizer, then water-
ed thoroughly. Remember ...
desert roses thrive \\idi very.
little water, not too much,
please.
Venice has their piggies
and their shark's teeth; how
I would LOVE to see the
island merchants display


their favorite desert roses.

STAFF REPORT


Keep Sarasota County
Beautiful (KSCB) is launching
an Adopt-Your-Campus cam-
paign spearheaded by Angela
Krause, a Sarasota High
School senior and the
youngest member of the
KSCB Advisory Board. The
board of county commis-
sioners appoints interested
citizens to membership on
this board. KSCB will hold a
program media kickoff cam-
paign April 20, at 10 a.m. at
Sarasota High School.
The Adopt-Your-Campus
program offers students at
each school the opportunity
to adopt their own campus
and coordinate regularly
scheduled campus cleanup
during the nine months that
school is in session. The
program goal is to unite
environmentally concerned
students throughout the
county in a concerted effort
to eliminate the habit of
littering.
Students will be eligible to
gain community service
hours, pride in their schools
and help educate others. To
date, 34 schools have joined
the program. Keep Sarasota
County Beautiful is appeal-


ing to all schools in the
county to take part in this
no-cost campaign.
Sarasota Military Academy
Principal Dan Kennedy stat-
ed, "I think the Adopt-Your-
Campus program will be
beneficial for our students
and will allow them the op-
portunity to call their school
and campus their own. The
parent and community in-
volvement in this program
underscores understanding
and the importance of keep-
ing our home and communi-
ties clean."
"Last year volunteers
picked up 98,885 pounds of
trash off our roads, parks,
beaches and waterways dur-
ing our cleanup program,"
said KSCB director Sandra
Washington. "By actively en-
gaging our students and
heightening their awareness
of the difference their efforts
can make, we can help them
to establish good habits, that
will last a lifetime."
Businesses that wish to
participate as sponsors are
encouraged to contact Keep
Sarasota County Beautiful.
To sign up or to receive
more information about the
Adopt-a-Campus program,

STAFF REPORT


How many adults do you
know who have trouble
spelling? Are you one of
them?
Ask poor speller if they
had to write their misspelled
words over and over when
they were in school and the
majority will answer yes.
Ask them if this helped and
the answer will be no.
Anyone who has trouble
spelling can tell you that
writing words 50 times, 100
times, even 1,000 times does
not help at all. So why do
educators continue to insist
that students use this meth-
od to learn to spell?
It's a case of doing the
same thing in the same way
over and over again and
expecting different results,
which has come to be known
as the "definition of insanity."
But if writing the words
doesn't work, what else is
there?
The answer lies in learning
styles. Find out what kind of
learner you are working
with so you can recommend


the appropriate strategy. In
the case of spelling, it's pretty
easy to identify the modality
style of a student who is
struggling. People who have
a natural ability to spell are
Writing/Print Learners and
they are born that way.
These people, don't even
need a spelling program,
they just spell. If a word hap-
pens to come along that is a
little more difficult, they can
write it a few times and know
it forever. Writing works for
these learners because they
are Writing Learners.
People who are not na-
tural spellers are not Writing/
Print Learners. Therefore, a
student who struggles with
spelling can immediately be
identified as a non-Writing/
Print Learner. This means he
is a Picture or Tactile Learner.
People who are Picture or
Tactile Learners do not learn
by writing.
They do learn by making
picture clues, using textured
materials, or even acting out
the word spellings. Some
educators think that these
strategies take too long, but


not. as long as it takes to
write a word 100 times and
then end up never learning
it at all.
Here is an example of
using picture clues with the
word Friend. Friend has a
letter in it that is silent and
very confusing. A poor spell-
er might remember there is
something odd about this
word and might even re-
member that there is an i
and an e in it, but might not
remember the correct place-
ment of these letters. Possible
spellings are Frind, Frend,
Freind.
Now coach this student
to write "fr" with a colored
marker. Next write a giant "I",
in a different color and per-
haps make it into a character
by putting hair at the top,
drawing arms and legs, etc.
You don't have to be artistic,
the sillier the better. Next
write "end" in a third color.
Now the student can look at
this picture and practice
saying I am a friend to the
end. This picture clue for
friend can be put on a 5 by 8
card, pinned to the wall, and


visualized often during the
day, with the student closing
his eyes and seeing the pic-
ture he drew.
Students who learn one or
two words at a time like this
become quite successful at
spelling. Sometimes, just
making the picture clue and
rehearsing it once is enough
to put the word into long
term memory.
By the way, the idea that
the more students read the
better they can spell is a
myth. Because of the com-
plexity of our language, read-
ing and spelling are two
very separate functions that
use different parts of the
. brain. There are many great
readers who are terrible
spellers!
And one more thing: the
kids have to be developmen-
tally ready before any of this
will work. Most are not
ready to learn to read and
spell until they are 8 or 9
years old.

tion, contact Learning-
Success Institute at learning-

Kids learn when lessons are fun


STAFF REPORT


When it comes to getting
children to learn, teachers
and parenting experts agree
that when the lessons are
fun, kids get more out of
them. That's the object of a
new board game, designed
to help children ages 5 to 8
develop their personal and
emotional skills.
The Oikos Game was cre-
ated by a psychiatrist and a
pediatrician to help children


learn positive strategies to
handle common emotional
situations. It provides a ven-
ue for families to talk about
sensitive issues relating to
school, community and fami-
ly in a safe and secure envi-
ronment.
The game promotes cop-
ing skills for children, teach-
ing them how to deal wth
bullies, show empathy, be
assertive, solve problems,
face fears and deal with
strangers.


It also encourages reading
and mathematical ability, as
well as good manners during
play.
The Oikos Game encour-
ages children to have fun as
they learn important life
lessons. Through laughter
and family interaction, chil-
,dren are eased into the
challenge of personal and
emotional development.

weight of the B-24 were too
much. Jonesy and the entire
crew perished before the ship
was able to reach them.
Although he was only 21
years old when he crashed,
the grief is lessened some
when one realizes that he
packed more into those 21
years than people who live to
be 100.
Epilogue
Why has this story re-
mained on my mind for near-
ly 60 years?
I think I know.
I needed an outlet during
the war, which would help me
deal with the unexpected
changes that came about dur-
ing that unsettled period in
my life. Jonesy helped tre-
mendously to provide that.
Unpleasant matters associat-
ed with those distant days
seemed to be transformed
from the worry zone of my
mind to sort of a comfort
zone.
The exciting times in Ari-
zona and Italywere, no doubt,
a tonic to my well-being. In
short, Jonesy was good thera-
py and this is sort of a thank
you note.
Strangely, I cannot remem-
ber his full name. He was just
Jonesy. Everyone called him
that. So even though I didn't
have much information to go
on I could not bear our
delightful past being buried at
sea without further fanfare.
And, I needed to learn more
about this unusual individual.
I had little information
with which to begin my quest
into his life only his last
name and home state of
Georgia. After some initial
research, I learned that
Jonesy's full name was Robert
Charleton Jones. His father
died in 1926 and his mother
60 years later. All three of his
siblings are deceased.
I was able to locate a
nephew who provided me
with Jonesy's picture, which
was taken when he became a
second lieutenant.
The Thomasville, Ga.,
library sent me newspaper
information, which, among
other things, cited Jonesy's
"excellent traits and character,
his outstanding achieve-
ments as a sports figure." I
somehow knew that words
like these would be part of his
obituary.
I also was fortunate to get a
descriptive file from the De-
partment of the Army regard-
ingJonesy and his crew. It was
entitled: "Individual Deceas-
ed Personnel." The file re-
vealed that on that fatal day
when Jonesy was last contact-
ed, he was headed for an
emergency landing field in
Italy with 270 gallons of gaso-
line and defective propellers.
It was reported later that evi-
dence at the scene of the
ditching (letters, etc.) pre-
cluded any survivors. All 10
members of the crew died at
sea.
The remains of only one
crew members the navigator,
were recovered. Nearly two
years later his body was found
in a parachute that was en-
tangled in the wreckage of the
airplane lying at the bottom of
the sea.
Even though these reflec-
tions have dampened my
eyes and darkened my
thoughts, they also have pro-
vided some sense of closure
and the opportunity to say
these parting words: "Farewell
Jonesy you were one heck
of a guy."

Sarasota Comedy Festival helps Child Protection Center


BY PEGGI CONLIN-PAQUETTE
CORRESPONDENT

The 10th annual Sarasota
Comedy Festival was held
recently in Sarasota to benefit
the Child Protection Center.
The events kicked off
March 7 with a Funnybones
Luncheon held at Michael's
On East. The featured comic
and honorary co-chair for
this event was none other
than one of the Suncoast's
newest residents, Dick
Smothers. Smothers, who is
best known for his comedic
performances with his broth-
er, Tom, moved to Sarasota
about five years ago. When
asked what were the reasons
he chose to live in Sarasota,
Smothers replied that for 20
years he had been coming to
Sarasota to perform at the


Van Wezel. While here he
stayed on Longboat Key and
when it was time to go, he
never wanted to leave. Finally,
he and his wife, Denby, also a
co-chair of the event, moved
to the Suncoast. Denby is a
fourth generation Floridian
with family in Fort Myers.
The comedy of the Smoth-
ers Brothers has not been
dormant. They still tour to-
gether and recently had a
reuiion of the Smothers Bro-
thers Comedy Hour at..the
USA Comedy Arts Festival in
Aspen, Colo. They have also
been inducted into the
Hollywood Bowl Hall of
Fame.
Dick Smothers does not
rest on this laurels while living
in Sarasota. Much time is
devoted to raising money for
favorite charities such as the


Child Protection Center, The
AIDS Foundation, which he
stated is the most successful
and best run foundations
around, and Hospice. He has
had firsthand experience
with Hospice, having lost a
daughter recently to cancer.
Smothers was also kind
enough to offer this budding
comic some well needed
advice on the business of
comedy.
He is definitely a jewel of
the Suncoast.
The second event of the
three-day festival was an
open-mike night at the 5
O'Clock Club in Sarasota,
which featured several ama-
teur talents.
The final night was the
Cartoon Classic Gala, held
March 12 at the Hyatt in
Sarasota. Featured were New


York Times bestselling author
and comedian, Andy An-
drews and Gary Gulman of
NBC's "Last Comic Standing."
All proceeds from these
events will go to the Child
Protection Center to help
serve more than 23,000
Sarasota children each year.
The mission of the center
is child abuse prevention,
intervention and treatment.
They envision a community
where children are safe from
abuse and free to thrive.
Recently, a three-year
grant from the Gulf Coast
Community Foundation of
Venice has been given to fund
the expansion of agency ser-
vices in Southern Sarasota
County.
The Child Protection Pro-
ject for Southern Sarasota
County will provide super-

Finding a

qualified dog

trainer
BY DR. JANICE WILLARD
GUEST WRITER
Having a well-trained dog
is a celebration of the human
animal bond, but dogs do not
come into the world already
understanding human
speech, responding to !our
requests or knowing how to
live in our houses and walk on
a leash. They have the capa-
bility to learn these things,
but only if we teach them
what it is we want them to
know.
For most of us, that means
enlisting the aide of a dog
trainer and attending a train-
ing class. So finding a good
trainer, who teaches skills
while strengthening the
bond, is ,important. And that
is hnot always an easy task. '
I asked some experts what
they suggested looking for in
a good training class and a
good trainer, and surprisingly,
although they come from dif-
ferent backgrounds and styles
of training, their advice was
remarkably similar.
'Ask to visit a class in pro-
gress, said Terry Ryan, author
of "Coaching People to Train
their Dogs," "but don't take
your dog."
"If possible, observe both a
beginners and advanced
class," said Suzanne Clothier
author of "Bones Would Rain
from the Sky."
'An owner might want to
observe a classat the begin-
ning of the session and then
again six to eight weeks later
to see the improvement," said
Sophia Yin DVM and author
of "How to Behave So Your
Dog Behaves." "If a trainer
won't allow you to observe a
class, don't enroll," says Su-
zanne Hetts, PhD., certified
animal behaviorist and au-
thor of several books and
video training programs (see
AnimalBehaviorAssociates
.com).
Here are some things to
look for when you visit.
"Watch the dogs and the
handlers," said Clothier. 'Are
they having fun? Are they
learning with joy?" While this
may seem like the least
important thing, this is the
best indication that the own-
ers are relaxed and getting the
information they need and
the dogs are focused and in
the best frame of mind for
optimum learning.
"The class should look like
the dogs are having fun and
the dogs/owners should al-
ways have something they're
working on," says Yin. "If the
dogs just walk in a circle and
are bored, it is because the
pace of the class is sort of set
in stone rather than dictated
by the progress of the individ-
ual dogs."
Probably the greatest ad-
vances in dog training have

SOUTH NEWS


Schools are

test-taking,


LYNN REIFERT
CORRESPONDENT


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

The main focus of our edu-
cational process these days is
preparing children for taking
academic achievement tests.
Schools, forced by politicians,
must place the emphasis on
test preparation. This is over
the importance, and at the
expense, of encouraging and
developing creativity, and fos-
tering a love for learning.
Ironically, there may be a
negative effect on the quality
of students graduating from
our achievement-test-obsess-
ed schools and entering our
workforce. This is because too
much time is spent learning
to give correct answers to spe-
cific questions (convergent
thinking), rather than on
learning to think and solve
problems creatively (diver-
gent thinking).
Testing in our schools
begins very early now, typical-
ly in the first grade. Young
children are very vulnerable
and influenced greatly by
their parents and teachers.
When children are judged pri-
marily by their achievement
on tests, spontaneity disap-
pears. Anxiety takes the place
of enthusiasm for learning
and creative thought.
When the focus is predom-
inantly on learning there is
one right answer to a ques-
tion, children become less
inspired to think for them-
selves. Unrealistic expecta-
tions asking children to
perform at a certain level and
under stress before they are
developmentally ready --
along with rigid perfection-
ism implied by the testing,
can also kill creativity.


teaching

not thinking

We all possess the endow-
ment to develop creativity.
Just as children can be taught
to think more logically, they
can also be guided to increase
their individual creative abili-
ties. Wouldn't it be great to
educate our children in a way
that balances their creativity
and logic?
This can be accomplished
by setting the stage to allow
children to discover answers
for themselves. This method
generates enthusiasm and
also inspires children to come
up with their own questions.
It is a more effective way of
teaching than spoon-feeding
questions and answers.
But because of current test
preparation requirements,
teachers are unable to take
time to teach the best way.
There are deadlines and seri-
ous consequences for having
a class that does not do well
on the required testing.
Teachers are judged by their
students' test scores. Schools
that do not perform well on
these tests risk losing govern-
ment funding. Teachers need
to spend most, if not all, of
their time preparing students
for the tests.
Teachers are complaining
that children today have no
imagination. Generating a
piece of creative writing
seems impossible for them.
Perhaps they are afraid to
express themselves because
of the strict writing guidelines
they are taught to follow at a
very early age. They are drilled
to follow writing formulas to
prepare them to pass the test.
Ideally, creative thought
and expression would be
given as much positive atten-
tion in our schools as learning
to pass tests. Unfortunately, it
often goes unnoticed and is
sometimes even discouraged.
Divergent thinkers are
extremely valuable to our so-
ciety. They are the inventors,
the people who come up with
unique solutions to problems.
They are also those who
enrich the lives of others
through their artistic cre-
ations. Many professions rely
on the ability to "think outside
the box." Others depend on
artistic or mechanical talents.
Teachers need to be able to
measure their students' pro-
gress. However, since politi-
cians decided to take more

And the Oscar goes to ... South County


North Port's Bill Corso took Hollywood's biggest
prize for his makeup work on "Lemony Snicket's
A Series of Unfortunate Events."


BY APRIL FRAWLEY
STAFF WRITER


When Bill Corso was 10, he
told his mother he had one
goal to make it onto the
pages of the special effects
makeup magazines he read
religiously.
It wasn't long after Corso,
who grew up in North Port
and attended Booker High
School in Sarasota, moved to
California to pursue his
dream of being a special
effects makeup artist that he
accomplished that childhood
dream.
And on Feb. 27, the man
responsible for turning Jim
Carrey into Count Olaf in
"Lemony Snicket's A Series of
Unfortunate Events" earned
the highest honor in the
movie business: He won an
Academy Award.
Corso, 37, and colleague
Valli O'Reilly won the Oscar
for Best Makeup during the
77th annual Academy Awards
for their work.
"How proud can you be?"
his mother, Dianne Corso,
asked. "It was wonderful. He's
been wanting to do this since
he was 5 years old. He has
never wavered. My son was
always into this type of thing."
Pride
As Corso accepted his


golden statuette in the Kodak
Theater, his mother Dianne
and grandparents, Sal and
Lucy DePrima, huddled
around a TV in the Venice
home they now share.
Dianne's chest heaved as
she watched her son, and her
eyes welled with tears.
"We were all crying," she
recalled. "We were getting
calls from all over. It was a
wonderful evening."
Corso, who was at the
show with his wife, Odile, and
younger brother, called his
mother during an intermis-
sion to apologize for the short
list of thank-yous in his
acceptance speech. He later
thanked his parents online on
the Oscars Web site.
"First and foremost I thank
my Morn and Dad," he wrote
on the Web site, "for having
me and encouraging me to
pursue this crazy profession,
when I could have been a
plumber."
Corso, who has been
hailed as a "disguise master"
on several industry Web sites,
has worked as a makeup and
special effects artist on more
than 20 movies, including
"How the Grinch Stole Christ-
mas," "Planet of the Apes"
and "A.I. Artificial Intelli-
gence."
He also won two Emmys
for his work on Stephen


King's "The Stand" and the re-
make of "The Shining."
Somebody
As his mother and cousins
remember it, Corso has been
talented since he was a boy,
attending Garden Elementary
in Venice.
He always won when he
participated in haunted
house costume contests, his
mother said.
And Christine Wurst, a
cousin through marriage,
remembers how Corso used
to draw and make latex masks
in his garage
"Even when we were kids
and I used to watch him draw,
I just knew he was going to be
somebody," Wurst said. "I'm
really proud of him."
Lisa Tolar, whose mother is
Dianne's sister, also knew
when she was little that her
cousin was gifted. She's seen
everything Corso has worked
on since he left for Holly-
wood, from his early movies
to his currentwork on most of
Jim Carrey's films.
"He is Jim Carrey's makeup
guy," she said. "He even
thanked Jim Carrey (in his
speech)."
Jim and Tom
After graduating from
Booker High School's visual
and performing arts program
in 1985, Corso left for Cali-
fornia.
There, he studied at the Joe
Blasco Makeup School and
within a few years his family
was seeing his work in


movies.
And the work is much
more complex than many
people would imagine, Di-
anne said. Makeup artists in
movies sketch their designs
out first and take several
other steps before the make-
up or prosthetics they create
are ever applied to an actor.
"It's a long process," she
said. "You don't just put a fake
nose on. They're all piece by
piece."
For "Lemony Snicket,"
Carrey was required to be in
full makeup for seven hours a
day, and each day, Corso had
to make sure it looked exactly
the same, Dianne said.
The Oscar that Corso re-
ceived for his work in that
movie, his mother said, was
well-deserved.
After his win, Corso at-
tended several celebrity-
packed parties, and Tom
Cruise even held his Oscar,
she added.
Now Corso is back on the
set of "Fun with Dick and
Jane," the latest movie he's
working on with Jim Carrey.
He even made a surprise
call to his mother Monday
night with Carrey on the
line.
"Yesterday, I got a call from
Jim Carrey," Dianne said. "He
told me how amazing my son
is and how proud I should be
of him. That was a fun thing
for me."

WEDNESDAY

No excuse for



not exercising


or two other people wonder-
ing where I am at 6 a.m. if I'm
sleeping instead of running.
Guilt is a powerful motiva-
tor. Running with others also
gives me someone else to
complain to, be it about not
getting enough sleep, tight-
ness in my hamstrings or the
frozen pizza the night before
that's not sitting well in my
stomach.
Nonrunners itching to
reconnect with a fitness pro-
gram should consider joining
a group. There wasn't aVenice
runners group, so I created
one.
As far as other physical dis-
ciplines go, there's something
for everyone. Venice YMCA
has yoga classes on the beach
every Monday and Friday;
walkers have three organized
groups out every Monday,
Wednesday, Friday and Sat-
urday; and there are low-
impact aerobics by Venice
YMCA every Monday, Wed-
nesday and Friday at the
Island Community Church.
And these are just the fit-
ness groups I know about.
Working out alone is the
best way to eventually be-
come bored and quit a fitness
program. Teaming up with
others, regardless of age and
ability, is the best way to stay
motivated.
Who knows. You just might
make a new friend.
See you around the back of
the pack.
Back of the Pack is a week-
ly running column appearing
every Wednesday. Send run-
ning-related e-mails to News
Editor JJ. Andrews at:.jan-
drews@venicegondolier.com.

BACK OF THE PACK

Running friends up north
would've beaten me with the
Whiney Stick if they heard me
Friday morning.
Brrr. It's a bit cold. Maybe I
should sleep in an extra hour
instead of running before
work.
So often that's what hap-
pens to me when going out
for morning runs before work
by myself. The alarm goes off,
I smash the snooze bar and
instantly come up with a rea-
son for staying under the cov-
ers instead of getting up.
Amazing how quickly the
brain works while searching
for a reason to stay in bed.
Believe I could win a rational-
ization contest, if it was held
at 5:20 a.m. and dealt with
reasons to sleep for another
hour or two.
This is one of the many pit-
falls of always running or
doing any type of fitness pro-
gram alone. There is no one
there to keep you honest.
There is no one there count-
ing on you to show up.
So for completely selfish
reasons, I've decided to set up
'morning runs that start this
Friday at Centennial Park.
Anyone who wants to is invit-
ed'for runs that start at 6 a.m.
and travel the streets and
shorelines of Venice island
every Wednesday and Friday
morning.
Why start a group?
Yeah, I could say all that
stuff about .trying to help the
community get a little more
fit, but that would merely be a
version of the truth. The reali-
tyis I need to have at least one

PHOTO COURTESY OF THE TRAILBLAZERS
This picture was taken of the Trailblazers at the conclusion of the Feb. 18 meeting. Much like a

STAFF REPORT


On Feb. 18, the first meet-
ing ofVenetianWaterway Park

in 21 of 26 members.
The meeting was spon-
sored by Venice Area

At the February meeting,
Chief Jim Hanks of the VPD
made a presentation and
answered questions regard-
ing the role of the Trailblazer

and responding to incidents
requiring the VPD or the sher-
iff's office. There was also a
general discussion of issues
such as maps, patrol reports,
patrollers' checklists, safety


concerns, and reaching out to
schools, to seniors and the
disabled regarding use of the
VWP.
The Trailblazers ride VWP
daily performing a neighbor-
hood watch function.
All riders had background
checks performed by Venice

GOREN BRIDGE


Q 1 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
610987 v754 OA652484

Partner opens the bidding with one
spade. What action do you take?

A When you have four-card sup-
port for partner's major and a side
ace, don't even bother to take other
factors into consideration.
Experience shows that if you do not
raise immediately, you might miss a
game. Besides, the preemptive value
of a spade raise is important. Bid
two spades.

Q 2 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

47 vK862 0872 *KQJ62

The bidding has proceeded:
WEST NORTH EAST SOUTH
14 14 Pass ?

What action do you take?

A One spade is most unlikely to be
a comfortable spot for partner. If two
clubs were natural, that might be the
best spot, but partner is sure to treat
it as a cue-bid in support of spades.
Bid one no trump.

Q 3 Both vulnerable, as'South you
hold:
6A7 coA5 oAKQ983 4,Q109

The bidding has proceeded
SOUTH WEST, NORTH EAST
10 Pass 16 Pass
9
What do you bid now?

A It might seem that three dia-
monds is the logical choice, but give
partner as little as a major-suit king
and either the jack of diamonds or a
three-card fragment, and you could
have nine running tricks at no trump.,
Bid three no trump.

Q 4 North-South vulnerable, as
South you hold:


66 ~ 105 0 6 *AKQ876532


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
14 26* ?
*two-suited takeout


WEST


What do you bid now?

A You are not going to sell out to
any contract short of slam with this
hand. Under those circumstances,
you might as well preempt to a level
where you might not only buy the
contract, but also make it. Bid five
clubs.

Q 5 Both vulnerable, you hold:

.643 vJ62 0965 *AQ102

Partner opens the bidding with one
spade. What do you respond?

A If you use forcing no trump
responses, you are on the borderline
of that action and a raise to two
spades, and we don't mind which
action you choose. If you don't have
that weapon in your arsenal, don't
respond one no trump with all your
values in one suit. Raise to two
spades.

Q 6 Nether vulnerable, as South
you hold:

6'1072 v Q76 o-AQJ6 *A65


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
10 Pass 1

What do you bid now?


EAST
Pass


A Yes, we raise partner's major-suit
response with only three-card sup-
port. No, this is not the hand for that.
With a stopper in each unbid suit and
a perfectly balanced hand, one no
trump is a far more descriptive rebid.
Bid it.

TRAINER from page7B


come from the application to
training of scientific advances
in the field of learning.
"Historically, companion dog
training in the United States
pretty much started after
World War II and the trainers
were military K9 handlers
who employed, the same
techniques with companion
animals that were used with
military dogs," explained
Clothier.
It was an offshoot of these
techniques that I originally
learned as a child by watching
the training classes my moth-
er was attending.. But we've
come a long way.
As Ym said, "along with this
application of science to
training has come the realiza-
tion that we don't have to
force an animal to do what we

want. Rather it is better to set
things up so that he WANTS
to do what we want, since
that's the only way to get what
he wants."
"Look for trainers who rely
on teaching methods that
focus on encouraging and
rewarding the right behavior
with positive reinforcement,
rather than punishing or 'cor-
recting' undesirable ones,"
said Hetts.
"A good trainer will have a
variety of techniques, most of
them positive," said Ryan.
'And positive training is
supportive of the kind of rela-
tionship people want with
their dogs," said Clothier.
Look also at class size and
availability of individual in-
struction.
'"Are people getting indi-


vidual attention and coach-
ing or is the instructor simply
calling out general direc-
tions?" asks Ryan. "I feel that a
ratio of more than five stu-
dents to one instructor is
pushing the limit for a quality
class."
Also you should look for a
class that has an introductory
class that you attend without
your dog, where they go over
some dog behavior and train-
ing basics, suggests Yin.
Are the instructions to
owners clear and do they use
a variety of methods that rec-
ognize the individuality of
dogs?
"If people in class say 'my
dog is flunking class,' then the
trainers haven't made it clear
that the dog only does what
the owner teaches," says Yin.

.'"Also are the skills being
taught useful ones and does
the trainer explain the real life
application of them?" asks
Clothier. ,
It is very important that the
class teaches owners how to
get their dogs to pay attention
to them.
"Some dog training classes
teach people how to get their
dog to do tasks like sit and
heel, but they don't teach the
dogs to focus on their own-
ers," says Yin. '"As a result, the
dogs really can't do anything,
because they aren't paying
attention to their owners."
Lastly, you should always
remember that the welfare of
your dog is your responsibili-.
ty. "Don't be afraid to tell a
trainer to stop if he or she is
doing something to your dog


that you don't like," cautions
Hetts. "And if the trainer tells
you to do something to or
with your dog that you are not
comfortable with, don't do it.
Don't be pushed into doing
something that is not in your
dog's best interest."
"Though they may try to
explain why they feel a cer-
tain technique is necessary, a
good instructor is respectful
and will accommodate an
owner's concerns or unwill-
ingness to use certain tech-
niques," says Clothier.
"So for most owners, the
best way to choose and keep
a trainer is to search out peo-
ple who not only have the
qualifications, -but whose
moral choices are in keeping.
with one's own, and to have
the courage to fire a trainer if


he uses methods that you dis-
agree with or are inhumane,"
says Trish King, Director of
Behavior & Training at the
Marin Humane Society, in
Marin County, Calif., (marin
humanesociety.org).
Other suggestions for
helping you find a good train-
er can be found at APDT.org
and animalbehaviorassoci-
ates.com.
A happy dog who pays
attention to its owner and
responds to its owner's
requests with delight and
spirit is truly a joy to have and
celebrates the human animal
bond. And getting that is up
to us.

day at least 25 tons of this
material is painstakingly
mailed all over the United
States and thrown away
immediately upon receipt.
Solid-waste experts esti-
mate that 78 percent of our
nation's landfill capacity is
currently occupied by sincere
unopened letters from Ed
McMahon informing people
that they have almost defi-
nitely won $14 million.
Why not just load this
material directly into rockets?
And consider this: If we
send up MORE than 25 tons a
day, the Earth would actually
LOSE gravity.
I calculate that every hu-
man being on the planet
would instantly be six ounces
lighter if we also sent Ed up
there, not that I am necessar-


ily proposing this.
So I say let's fire up the
rockets and get this pro-
gram going before gravity
gets so strong that all we can
do is lie on the ground,
helpless, while turtles rain
down upon us.
If you agree, write to your
senators and congressper-
sons today and let them know
where you stand.
Stress the urgency of the
situation. Stress their respon-
sibility as public officials.
Above all, stress that there's
room in the rocket with Ed.

Tasha is a 3-year-old border collie. She came to us because her
owner said she was not getting along with other animals. Here
at Humane Society of Sarasota County, she is friendly and
affectionate. Tasha's new owner needs to know that she has to
take medication every day for a urinary problem. Estimated
cost of the medicine per month is $13. Her previous owners
have made a cash donation for the cost of her meds for the
year. Tasha has special needs, but they can be met so easily.
Please give her a chance to have a good life once again. Can
you give Tasha a home? Visit the Humane Society of Sarasota

FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL COLUMNIST

Venice

MainStreet

shows its stuff

Venice MainStreet present-
ed a spring fashion show at
the Venice Yacht Club. Models
showed glamorous ensembles
for women whose lives call
for high fashion and tropical
styles for men, women and
children who need a little
more casual in their lives.
The clothes reminded
everyone that Venice Avenue
shops offer shoppers some-
thing for every wardrobe need.
I Clothes were shown from
B & B Bootery, B.W. Francis,
Dick's Shoes, The Islander,
Krystyna's Designs, La Casa
Del Quetzal, Mark, Fore &
Strike, Nana's- A Children's
Shop, Sunbug, Venice Tropical
Shop and Zak's On The
Avenue.
The committee included
Bruno Mollica, Pat Boruff,
Kathy Crisman, Carol Fritsch
and Gae Stewart. Table flow-
ers, programs and tickets were
donated by the Paper Pad.
MainStreet businesses do-
nated gifts and certificates for
door prizes. The Singing Disc
Jockey, Bruno Mollica, who
refers to himself as the voice of
Venice entertained the group.
Bank ofVenice and Re/Max
Properties sponsored this de-
lightful event. Bravo.

One of the most glamorous
annual events is the YMCA
fund raiser. Each year the
committee magically, with a
lot of hard work, transforms
the gymnasium into a grand
ballroom. This year it looked
like an open air plaza in Ven-
ice, Italy. The event raises
money for the YMCA scholar-
ship fund.
The committee chairmen
Michelle Hazeltine and Chris
Pfahler and other members
including Stephanie Deiter,
Joe Ferretti,Wendy Fishman,
Frank and Patti Gallo, Kara
Markos, Ken Modzelewski,
Amy Pidorenko and Pat Ryan
deserve a pat on the back for
a spectacular event.
President/Ceo Ken Modze-
lewski thanked everyone for
supporting the YMCA and
explained the new south
county YMCA will house Big
Brothers and Big Sisters and
an expanded speech clinic.
Comedians Ken Sons and
Les McCurdy got everyone to
bid on items including a ski
vacation at the Ritz-Carlton
Club in Beaver Creek, Colo-
rado valued at $21,860 do-
nated by Dr. Kenneth and
Christina Pfahler.
Thanks to everyone associ-
ated with the black tie gala,
many boys and girls will ben-
efit from YMCA programs.

Be sure to stop in at Bella
Luna Cafe tonight from 5 to 7
p.m. for a Wine Tasting to
benefit Hospice of Southwest
Florida. $15 tickets include
wines from Italy, hors
d'oeurves and music. Bella
Luna Cafe is located on the
corner of Miami and Noko-
mis Avenues.
The special person of this
week is Pat Boruff owner of
B & B Bootery on Venice
Avenue. This nice lady is an
advocate for Venice Main-
Street.
She is at every event
MainStreet spofisors doing
whatever it takes to make
sure things run smoothly. Pat
always, has a smile and a kind
word for everyone.
Pat Boruff is one of the
Venice Ave. business owners
who makes Venice special.
