A plane crashed in the Gulf
of Mexico about a mile off the
Venice Municipal Fishing Pier
around 10p.m. Wednesday.
"Officer Phil Phillips found
a body," Venice Police Lt. Ron
Solanes said. Phillips is VPD's
marine officer.
Identification of the body
was not determined.
The federal National

Lovell said the downed
plane was a Commander Air-

plane holds up to four occu-

Lovell said he did not know
how many people were on
board. ,
"I heard there were two,"
he said, "but that is uncon-

Sewage-filled church remains empty


Nearly two years later Union Missionary Baptist
Church members wait to return home, hoping
there'll be enough money to remodel.

Where does he find out
all these things?


Easter Sunday is a home-
coming event for many
churches, recognizing per-
haps the most important
event in Christianity.
This past Easter marked
the second one members of
Union Missionary Baptist
Church didn't have a home to
return to. The congregation
continues using a room at city
hall ever since more than 500
gallons of raw sewage backed
up and filled their historic
building nearly two years ago.
, And members still don't
know when they can return to
one of Venice's oldest church-
es.
The Rev. James Mitchell
remains positive the experi-
encei will only strengthen
their faith in God, even
though the city's reimburse-
ment for damages may barely
cover clean-up costs and put


the remaining financial bur-
den on a congregation of
about 50 people.
Al, of this goes toward a
history of problems between
city officials and residents
with congregation members
at 404 Warfield Ave., hidden
behind the city drinking
water plant and bumping up
against Hatchett Creek.
One only has to look back
to several years ago when the
city blocked access to the
church by installing a security
gate at the drinking water
plant, or look back almost 60
years ago when city council
passed a segregation ordi-
nance stating that that area
was the only place where "Ne-
gro residents" were allowed to
live.
"We stand together," Mit-
chell said. "One thing about it,
I don't care where,you're at, if
you got the Lord on your side,

School board member Laura Benson is keeping
track of issues from FCATs to school uniforms, in
case they might have an impact on Sarasota
.County.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Watching the Legislature is
Laura Benson's job as legisla-
tive liaison and member of
the Sarasota County School
Board. This year is like most
other years, said Benson, with
lots of proposed bills to track
and comment on. And a few
that deserve to be derailed.
In addition to funding,
here are some of the school
issues on Benson's radar
screen.
Vouchers
Gov. Jeb Bush is proposing
to expand the state's voucher
program for students who fail
the FCAT reading three years

in a row. Under legislation
introduced on behalf of the
governor, "Reading Compact"
scholarships would provide
funds to failing students to
attend a public or participat-
ing private school of choice,
even if FCAT testing is not
required at. the receiving
school.
Vouchers have been long
opposed by the Florida
School Boards Association
and Sarasota County School
Board.
"A provider getting a pri-
vate voucher or scholarship
funded with taxpayer funds
doesn't have to prove they're
educating children with it,"
Benson said.
"It has resulted in some


incredible opportunities for
fraud (funding terrorist
groups and non-existent stu-
dents in fake schools). It's
kind of nuts, actually. I don't
have to be ,on the school
board to be offended by that."
It's the position of the
school board that if public
educators are to be held
accountable for student per-
formance then private pro-
viders who accept tax dollars
should be held to the same
accountability standards.
"Otherwise, how do we
know if these students are
getting an education?" says
Benson. "We take exception
to the idea that if it's a private
education then it must be
better."
Board pay
The Legislature voted in
2002 to require each school
board to determine the salary
of its members each year dur-
ing their first regular meeting

following the organizational
meeting.
It's a hot potato issue for
board members, who don't
like the idea of being put in
the position of considering a
raise for themselves annually.
One of the board's priority
issues this year is to ask the
Legislature to "establish a uni-
form process for determining
the salaries of all state consti-
tutional officers."
"School board members
were specifically removed
from a long-standing statute
that spells ofit what constitu-
tional officers are paid,"
Benson said. 'A special law
was created that makes us
have a very public discussion
and vote on whether or not
we should have a salary."
It was done in a year when
the leadership of the Florida
Legislature was upset that
public school officials were
being less than enthusiastic
about vouchers, according to


Benson. The original bill was
written to remove school
board member salaries all
together and make boards
"pillars of the community."
'"One of my legislator
friends called and asked me
what I thought about that. I
told her when she was willing
to work as a'pillar of her com-
munity' is when I would."
Last year the Florida
School Boards Association
was asked to lead a statewide
effort to repeal the class size
amendment
"We refused," Benson said.
"Subsequently our FSBA
training grant was line-item
vetoed from the budget by the
governor that year. We get a
lot of retribution when we
don't play along. We simply
want the Legislature to treat
us like all the other elected
officials and go back to the
original statute."

However, the Federal Avi-
ation Administration Web site
report on the crash states:
"ACFT (aircraft) crashed un-
der unknown circumstances.
The one person on board was,
fatally injured."
The report also leaves
blank any information re-
garding the plane's departure,
destination, or radio traffic.
(Because Venice Municipal
Airport is not a controlled air-
port, it does not require a


flight plan, which would state
where the aircraft was from
and where it was going.)
Observers said the weather
at 10 p.m. Thursday was clear.
It is unknown whether the
airplane was planning to land
at or take off from Venice
Municipal Airport.
Locals first responders.
This was the call to 9-1-1
giving notice of a possible
crash:
"It's dark out here ma'am
... and I seen them going


down ... and then the lights
disappeared ... and then I
heard a (imitates sound)."
VPD Deputy Chief Dan
McGoogan said the Venice
police boat 'and Venice fire
boat went tothe scene initial-
ly. They were joined shortly
by the Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office Marine Unit
and the United States Coast
Guard.
The sheriff's helicopter
also was used in the search.

Venice Fire Department
Assistant Chief John Reed said
the search for wreckage and
possibly more bodies contin-
ued into Thursday afternoon.
"They brought in addition-
al 'dive crews from Charlotte
County we're taking them
out there in our boat," Reed
said. "No substantial wreck-
age has been found yet."
Sarasota County sheriff's
divers also are conducting an
underwater search, according
to Reed.
Reed said he was told the
water at the ,crash site was
about 30 feet deep.
"It's getting a little choppy
out there now," Reed reported
about 3:30 p.m. Thursday.
"The seas are running about
4 feet but they're still search-
ing." -
Firemedics at the crash
site said one of their biggest
jobs was keeping pleasure
boaters from coming too
close to the search field,

Most of the church's drywall had to be removed and replaced
because of mold following the sewage spill.

sewage,


he'll keep you together. .
"We're hanging together.
It's kind of difficult, but in dif-
ficulty, we see a greater light."
Financial burden
Mitchell estimates clean-
up costs will come in at about
$80,000. The project's second
phase renovation and
equipment replacement -
may be as much as an addi-
tional $150,000.
Despite city liability, less
than half of the repair .cost
will be paid by Venice. State
laws protect governmental'
bodies by capping heir liabil-
ity at no more than $100,000.
So far. Venice has only paid
$11,730 toward the clean-up
effort and will deduct that
from the final insurance
claim, which has, not been
submitted. At most, the
church will only receive
another $88,270 from the city.
"We've had a lot of promis-
es, and we're still getting a lot
of promises," Mitchell said.
'"And then they let. us down,
and we'd have to start all over.
... In reality, we should've


been in there by now."
Fund-raising efforts were
set up year ago through Gulf
Coast Community Foun-
dation of Venice. To date,
money from the GCCFV fund
and other donations are at
nearly $42,000, Mitchell said.
Mitchell's best guess is that.
another $80,000 will be need-
ed, and it's uncertain where
that money will come from.
Union Missionary Baptist
Church may have to take out
a bank loan to complete ren-
ovations.
"If we have to get a loan,
we'll get a loan," Mitchell said.
"We want to move forward.
We don't want things like this
to hold us back."
What happened?
Four days of heavy rains in
June 2003 set off lift station
alarms at eight 'different
sewage pumping locations,
according to city reports.
At lift station No. 7 next to
the church, the pumps com-
pletely failed June 22, 2003,
and at least 500 gallons of raw
sewage backed up into the


building. Nearly every
plumbing outlet spewed out
the material, and it took city
workers 10 hours'to contain
the problem.
The city's spill report states
that all 500 gallons was con-
tained within the church
building and would have, to
be professionally removed.
Much of the sewage filled the
church's baptismal pool,
soiled drywall and lead to
mold growth throughout.
Mitchell said city officials
promised in 2003 they would
take care of the problem, and
offered to relocate their wor-
ship services to the Venice
Area Chamber of Commerce.
But no one told them the
chamber charged for that
room, and the church was hit
with a bill it thought the city
would pay. Ever since services
have been held rent free at a
city hall room.
As for the $1,750 in rent for
using the chamber location,
the city is deducting that from
its reimbursement payment
along with electric, water and
phone costs at the church


since the sewage spill. Venice,
through its insurance carrier,
has only paid $8,145 in actual
clean-up costs, so far.
No extra money
Congregation members
complained to city council in
March 2004 after nine
months of waiting. City man-
agement had changed by that
point, going from George
Hunt to current City Manager
Marty Black, and church
members were told then they
must go through their insur-
ance carrier.
Venice did not consider
waiving the $100,000 cap for
liability because it would put
the city's coverage at risk,
Black said.
,"I don't know that we can
waive that," Black said.
"There was some question as
to whether that would make,
us uninsurable."
Alan Bullock with the city's
risk management depart-
ment verified that, saying
"goodwill payments" beyond
what state laws require would
make companies hesitant to


insure the city.
Still, that hurts. All of these
delays prevented one of
Venice's most important reli-
gious leaders, Pastor James C.
Sims Sr., from eyer seeing his
church restored. Sims died
Feb. 26, less than a week after
being honored by the Venice
Area Historical Society for his
contributions to the area
since moving here 75 years
ago. He was 83.
Mitchell,. who was previ-
ously the associate pastor,
will become the official
church pastor during a cere-
mony..
"There were a lot of slaps
in the face in the beginning.
... In my heart, I feel like they
should have waived it,"
Mitchell said. "Like I said in
the beginning, if this had hap-
pened to one of the big
churches : downtown, they
would've taken care of it."
Historical problems
Long known as a predomi-
nantly black church, Union
Missionary Baptist Church
has dealt with racism, segre-


nation, being hidden behind
the city's drinking water plant
and the misconception it is a
"black church" for residents
at Grove Terrace Apartments,
the city's only public housing
complex.
Mitchell points out 90 per-
cent of his congregation
comes from outside of the
Grove Terrace neighborhood
and many of his members are
white.
"It's not a colored church,"
Mitchell said. "It's just a group
of blacks and whites attend
that church there. It's very
important to remember that.
Ninety percent of the congre-
gation comes in from outside
of the area."
The church's roots do
extend back to when it was
only for black people, as is
proven in a city ordinance
passed Feb. 18, 1947. The
northern side of East Venice
Avenue between the Intra-
coastal Waterway and U.S. 41
Bypass was designated as "a
separate residential district in

Baldwin and her tigers pep-
pered the panel about specific
issues concerning traffic con-
gestion, water supplies, mass
transit and sewer lines, the
panelists continued to say
answers would have to. come
from the community, not
government.
"As long as local govern-
ment creates more density,
eliminates concurrency and,
approves more rapid growth,
we're going to get gridlock,"


said Tiger Bay member Dan
Lobeck. "Isn't it time you ac-
cept responsibility?"
Telling Lobeck and other
club members that they were
all "slaves to the auto," Ley
said, "Government is you, not
the institution I manage or
the board, of county commis-
sioners that sets the policy. It
may be impossible, given our
love affair with the auto to
build our way out of roads."
Good idea, but...
Brain the panelist who
was caught in the stalled U.S.
41 traffic that changed his 20-
minute drive to 45 minutes -
added that residents needed
to consider solutions that in-
volved less driving.
"The solution must come
from the local community so
you don't drive so much,"
Brain said. "You need a solu-
tion that can be devised col-
lectively without reliance on
government."


Baldwin pointed out that
the county has had a growth
management plan for the
past 20 years that called for
everything to be in place
before more-was built.
"We haven't done that," she
lamented.
"No community has," Brain
said. "There's no way to pay
for all the improvements
ahead of time."
Concurrency, he said, was
the solution adopted by gov-
ernment that called for im-
provements and development
to happen at the same time.
It was a good idea, he said,
but couldn't work the way
laws were written.
Ley predicted that in the
next 10 to 15 years, relations
with the federal and state
governments given their
financial difficulties would
change in a dramatic fashion
forcing the counties to be
more responsible for them-
selves. Increasingly, in order


to balance the state budget,
state lawmakers have resort-
ed to raids on state trust
funds or passing tesponsibili-
ty to implement programs on
to the counties, the so-called
unfunded mandates.
The key to the discussion,
Brain said, was in determin-
ing what was worth sustain-
ing, then how to allocate
resources to that effort.
Recapture responsibility
Sustainability is the con-
cept of maintaining the
quality of life in a community
without damaging natural
systems for future genera-
tions.
Sarasota County has
placed sustainability at the
center of its operations by
initiating- sustainable poli-
cies and internal practices.
For example, the county has
purchased hybrid vehicles
for its fleet, promoted eco-
tourism, designed and con-


structed "green buildings" at
the Twin Lakes complex, and
purchased environmentally-
friendly products for use in
the workplace.
Pointing to an economic
footprint county officials con-
ducted last summer, Ley said
that it took the resources of
22.2 acres to sustain every
Sarasota County resident
given the current rate of con-
sumption. Nationally, the
averages was 23.7 acres per
person, according to the study
conducted by Redefining
Progress, a nonpartisan, non-
profit organization that de-
velops tools to shift the
economy and public policy
toward sustainability.
"Unless we recapture per-
sonal responsibility, we'll
have a hard time dealing with
the problems," Ley said. ,

Raid on housing trust fund denied county $2.5 million


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


: Florida long-range plan-
hers who recognized the im-
portance of affordable hous-
ing as a component of growth
established
the nation's .
largest dedi- ..
cated revenue
source for
programs "
they, now fear ,
may be sacri-
ficed to help I
balance the
state's annual Patterson
budget.
- If the Legislature approves
-Gov. Jeb Bush's'request, more
than half of the $400 million
that annually flows into tHi
-state's affordable housing
trust fund from a special tax
on real estate sales could be
diverted into the general fund.
The immediate impact on
-Sarasota County housing re-
-habilitation and down pay-
ment assistance programs
would be about $2.5 million a
year,. and could hamper local
-efforts to provide affordable
homes for service sector
workers and residents with
modest incomes.
"Florida was ahead of its
time with this fantastic con-
cept," said Dan Schmelzinger,
.the county's deputy director
of housing and community
:development. "I've worked in
cities where there is no assis-
.tance. In Iowa and Michigan
.we wrestled without state'
revenue."
-No recourse
The Florida Legislature
adopted the William E. Sa-
dowski Act in 1992 and levied
a 20-cent documentary
stamp tax on every $1,000 of
real estate sold to provide a
reliable revenue stream for
the state's affordable housing
trust fund. It generated
$413.8 million last year.
Most of the money goes to
'fund SHIP (the State Housing
!Improvement Program) and
is allocated to cities and coun-
ty. The remaining 30 percefit
is dedicated to other pro-
grams, such as the Guarantee
Fund, which have been ap-
proved by the Legislature.
- Last year, affordable hous-
ing took a statewide hit when
lawmakers dipped into trust
fund revenue and took $220.8
million to help balance the
budget. It left $193 million
for housing programs and set
a precedent the governor now
wants to make permanent.
: The trust fund raid came at
'a time when Sarasota County
is establishing a local trust
-fund of its own and dedicat-
ing proceeds from the future
sale of about 900 seized North
Port lots an estimated $9
million to $10 million to
,the purchase of affordable


housing development sites.
On March 11, County At-
torney Steve DeMarsh report-
ed there is no legal recourse
to require the $220.8 million
be replaced. He said the law
governing state trust funds
"does not apply to monies
appropriated through the
general appropriations act."


Signs
Because local real estate
prices have recently soared,
many service workers can no
longer afford to live in the
county. A possible sign that
the exodus has begun was
recently acknowledged by
officials who administer pre-
school programs for working


class families.
They reported Early Learn-
ing Coalition applications
have dropped over the last six
months, and there are no
longer .waiting lists for the
children of working-class
families who qualify for
preschool education pro-
grams at child care centers.


Last month, county com-
missioner Nora Patterson
addressed the issue of fam-
ilies leaving.
"Our poor people are mov-
ing out," she said. "This is a
back-handed way of solving
our social problems, but not
a great one. We are losing
our work force."


Coalition Director Janet
Kahn indicated a search for
prior pre-school applicants
revealed many families had

left the county.
"They moved to Manatee
County or elsewhere," she
said. "Those we talked to said
they could no longer afford to
live here."

ECC asks police to



name those accused


The preschool's woes continue, as NAEYC,
the largest accreditation agency
for preschools, pulls its accreditation.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Attorneys representing
Venice Presbyterian Church
last week officially requested
the names of current daycare
workers who are the subject
of a police investigation of its
Early Childhood Center, but
to date haven't received a re-
sponse.
On March 17 the Venice
Police Department filed com-
plaints requesting charges on
six current and former em-
ployees as a result of the in-
vestigation of child abuse at
the Venice Presbyterian Early
Childhood Center.
ECC said the Venice Police
Department confirmed there
were two current employees,
not three as reported earlier,
at the center under investiga-
tion, but did not furnish
names of the employees, said
Patricia O'Gorman, chair of
the Early Childhood Com-
mittee Center.
"Our investigation has
failed to reveal the presence
of any current employees of
the center that pose a danger
to the children attending
ECC," wrote O'Gorman in a
letter dated March 24 to .par-
ents of children at the center.
"If you believe that the
children attending the Early
Childhood Center are at risk
because some of its current
employees are a danger to the
children, we request to be in-
formed of the names of said
employees," wrote attorney
Peter A. Miller, out of Miami,
in a letter dated March .19 to
Venice Police Department's
Deputy Chief Dan McGoogan.
"It is our intention and


desire to protect the children
from any possible risk. If you
have any information which
gives you any reason to sus-
pect child abuse by any cur-
rent members of our staff,
please advise so we can take
immediate action."
Staff actions
The letter revealed that
ECC may already have a good
idea of who the police reports
allude to. They had taken
additional action against at
least one other current em-
ployee, who was placed in a
non-teaching position when
it was learned allegations
were made against her. Last
year two teachers were fired
and one administrator re-
signed over previous allega-
tions.
ECC also said it was in-
formed of an allegation con-
cerning a fifth employee,
"but she has already left
our employment," states the
letter.
"We've not heard a word
from the state attorney's of-
fice," O'Gorman said on
Monday. "We're all in a wait-
ing mode."
Venice Police Department
declined comment on the
letter.
The investigation is still
ongoing pending a decision
by the state attorney wheth-
er to proceed with charges
against some or all of the
current or former ECC em-
ployees.
Accreditation
Meanwhile, ECC lost, its
national accreditation. A let-
ter was sent two weeks ago


from the National Association
for the Education of Young
Children apprising ECC of
its action, said NAEYC
spokesman Al Simpson.
ECC officials say they will
seek to restore its preschool
accreditation.
"We are saddened by (the)
news," said O'Gorman in a
letter to ECC families, "but
. we are confident in the posi-
tive direction of our school
and are continuing to do
everything we can to uphold
the school's integrity and
ensure the safety and well-
being of the children entrust-
ed to our care."
Simpson would not speak
about NAEYC's investigation
into ECC's loss of accredita-
tion, but confirmed they re-
ceived complaints in Octob-
er and conducted an onsite
investigation in December.
Any investigation opens
up the entire process of ac-
creditation all over again,
said Simpson, noting ac-
creditation can be revoked
even for reasons unrelated
to the original complaint.
NAEYC policy is to keep
confidential all details re-
garding investigations.
"It's a voluntary system.
We don't want the effort to
seek accreditation to become
a negative for them," Simp-
son said.
NAEYC is the largest ac-
creditation agency for pre-
schools for the last 20 years,
Simpson said.
"It's a real mark of dis-
tinction for preschools to
become accredited. It shows
real commitment of staff to
raise the quality of service."
Still, less than 10 percent of
preschools even seek ac-
creditation, he said..

Martins establish scholarship


fund at Venice High School


STAFF REPORT


The Rotary Futures Pro-
gram at Venice High School
has announced the establish-
ment of a new scholarship
program made possible by a
generous gift from Joyce and
Bill Martin.
They came to Venice about
six months ago from Ma-
nomet, Mass., to enjoy the
Venice area. They weren't
able to 'sit still, so they pur-'
chased the Venice Pavilion


North Nursing Home on
Nokomis Avenue, where they
plan to build town houses. In
Manomet they own construc-
tion and real estate compa-
nies.
The new program will ben-
efit anyone with need who is
looking to get into vocational
training of any kind, whether
at a community college or, a
technical or specialty school.
The Martins have donated
$10,000 to make this a reality.
The program will have


flexible application deadlines
that will allow those in need
to apply at any time. It also
will put in place an expo for
all specialized training oppor-
tunities, likely to be held on
the Venice High School cam-
pus. This will be similar to the
current college night.
The Martins said they were
moved to make the donation
because they have come to
love Venice and want to make
a difference to youth in the
community

FRIDAY, APRIL 1, 2005 VENICE GONDOLIER SUN 7A


EYE from page lA
Referendum
A bill to extend the length
of school tax referendums to
up to 10 years effectively died
" on Tuesday when author Rep.
Nancy Detert, R.-Venice,
pulled her own bill from a
House Finance and Tax Com-
mittee.
"We are extremely disap-
pointed that this bill has been
withdrawn in the House of-
Representatives," Benson
said. "The bill moved through
the Senate without difficulty.
It's unfortunate that at the
first sign of resistance it's
being pulled from further
consideration."
Benson hopes Detert will
reconsider and push the bill
further along in the commit-
tee process.
"This is an issue about
local voters making decisions
about the quality of educa-
tion in their community. A
longer referendum period
would allow us to make long-
range plans for substantive
improvements that would
close the achievement gap,"
Benson said.
Bus seat belts
School district administra-
tors support repeal of a
requirement to use seat belts
on school buses because
research doesn't show they're
any safer than compartmen-
talization, and getting kids to
wear them is like pulling
teeth.
Legislation to amend the
new school bus seat belt law
has yet to be introduced, but
school officials from numer-
ous counties are working it,
say administrators.
"I'm not too crazy about
the new law," said Dave
Ingalls, acting director of
transportation. "We'd be here
all day if we had to get kids to
put on their seat belts before a
bus ever moved."
It's a classic case of putting
the cart before the horse, said
Ingalls.
Beside being practically
unenforceable, the research
just doesn't back up the claim


that seat belts are safer than
compartmentalization, the
term used for high, padded
seat backs that help protect
children.
Ingalls says compartmen-
talization may be safer than
seat belts.
"Research I've seen shows
that seat belts can hurt chil-
dren in their pelvic area. We'd
like to find other restraints
that would be safer. Perhaps
some kind of harness. Lap
belts don't work. They aren't
the answer," Ingalls said.
'"Adding seat belts is an
extraordinary cost," Benson
said. "Our. reimbursement
(from the state) for providing
student transportation is only
about 60 percent of the actual
cost, so adding seat belts sim-
ply puts us further behind.
"Of course, the safety of
our students is of the utmost
importance to us. I want to do
what's best for our students.
"Making the bus driver a
'seat belt monitor' is very dis-
tracting and poses its own
safety issues," Benson said.
Uniforms
Rep. Antone, D.-Orlando,
has filed a bill in the House
mandating that Orange
County adopt a district-wide
uniform policy, but that
would not require the district
to provide the uniforms, ac-
cording to Benson. As of last
week there was no compan-
ion Senate bill.
"It's wildly inappropriate
for the Florida Legislature to
dictate a uniform policy to
one district," Benson said.
"Having said that, I hap-
pen to be a huge fan of uni-
forms. But I'm supportive of
our district policy that allows
our' individual schools to
decide whether or not to have
a uniform."
All schools have a dress
code, but enforcement varies
from school to school.
"That's unfortunate, said
Benson. "While most of our
students in high school dress
appropriately, those who
don't are allowed to continue.
It pretty much makes a mock-
ery of dress code policies.

Reforms
The Legislature is also
looking at other school re-
forms, but not necessarily

suing.
"The reforms being ad-
dressed in Tallahassee are not
always consistent with our
district goals," Benson said.
"We would be better served
with more local control than
state mandates."
She points to recent dis-
trict efforts that are producing
results, like the move toward
more collaborative planning,
meaningful professional de-
velopment for staff, and
examining with greater fre-
quency how well students are
learning.
"The Sarasota County

CHURCH from page 3A
which only Negroes may re-
side," according to Venice
Ordinance No. 204, and the
rest of the city was a "residen-
tial district in which only
white persons may reside."
Basically, this is the area
where the drinking water
plant, fire station, public
housing complex and the
church all are today. Pun-
ishment was a $50 fine for
every day someone violated
the ordinance.
U.S. Supreme Court deci-
sions in the 1960s voided
these types of ordinances, but
Union Missionary Baptist
Church was built in' 1951
while- the local law was in
affect.
Dealing with neighbors
The city eventually took
over much of this area by
1974, according to county
property records, building the
drinking water plant and fire
station on nearly 5.5 acres
that surrounds the church
except for Hatchett Creek on
the northern boundary.
About three years ago, the
city erected a new security
fence that closed off the
church's entranceway. It took
almost a year of public com-
plaints to get it removed.
"It was terrible," Mitchell
said. "We had to call a securi-
ty guard to let us into our own
church. It took almost a year
before they took it down."
And after all of this, in an
area once designated as suit-
able only for "Negro resi-
dents," the church has been
fending off a multitude of pri-
vate developer offers wanting
to buy its quarter-acre of land.
The city has said repeated-
ly it wants to relocate the
drinking water plant and fire
station. Officials with Venice
Housing Authority would like
to move too. Private develop-
ers have expressed interest in
erecting condominium devel-
opments, though nothing has
been approved by the city.
As for the little church, hid-
den away behind all these
government properties and
fighting to get back inside its
sanctuary, the members in-


tend to stay right where they
are.
Not only for history's sake,
but also for every current and
former congregation member
who's ever called Union Mis-
sionary Baptist Church home.
"In all the years we've been
there, we've never gotten let-
ters about people interested
in buying it," said Mitchell, 43,
who attended the church as a
child.
"Now, they're coming in
left and right. ... The church
has been here, it will always
be here. I tell them, 'Don't you
know? All those people mov-
ing into condominiums need
churches, too.'"

JOHN FINERAN
SPORTS COLUMNIST

McKechnie:

Baseball's

spring Oz

"Take Me Out to the Ball-
game" certainly has a different
meaning today than it did
years ago in baseball.
For instance, the line, "Buy
me some peanuts and Crack-
er Jacks." Have you priced a
bag of peanuts and a bag (not
box) of Cracker Jacks at your
local spring training hangout?
With all its black eyes of
soaring salaries, economic
imbalance, player indiffer-
ence to fans and the steroid
issue, you'd think Major
League Baseball would be a
little fan-friendlier when it
comes to the prices for tickets
and concessions.
It now costs you $7 or more
to buy yourself some peanuts
and Cracker Jacks at the old
ballpark. Ouch! And you can
forget about buying the pea-
nuts and Cracker Jacks out-
side. Your mugshot might as
well be on the wall at your
local post office.
The next time some over-
zealous ticket taker wants to
relieve you of the thin mints
you bought from the Girl
Scout at the counter, you have
my permission to ask the fol-
lowing questions: 1. Can I get
thin mints in the stadium? 2. If
I spend money inside the
stadium for snacks, will that
bring our club the left-handed
bat it needs?
The answers you'll get are
no and no when clubs should
be tripping all over themselves
to change those replies to yes
and yes.-
The real larceny, of course,
is the price fans must shell
out to see their ballclubs play.
The Red Sox are a tough
ticket to find and buy. You
can pay anywhere from $44
for a homeplate box ticket
down to $10 for standing
room. That's right $44 to
watch Johnny Damon, Trot
Nixon, Manny Ramirez, Kevin
Millar, David Ortiz, Curt
Schilling and Jason Varitek
play maybe five innings.
The top ticket at Legends
Field in Tampa goes for $19,
the same price the Devil Rays
charged for their top ticket at
Al Lang Field.
Which brings us to Mc-
Kechnie Field, the winter
home of the Pittsburgh Pir-
ates. McKechnie Field sits in
a Bradenton neighborhood
on the comer of Ninth Street
West and 17th Avenue West.
It's an old-school ballpark,
very basic and with a classic
look that will take you back
to the game's grander days.
On a good day, more than
6,500 diehards can squeeze
their way into spring training's
Wrigley Field because they
don't have to take out a second
mortgage to buy tickets and
eats. The top" ticket at Mc-
Kechnie goes for $11. Plus, the
place has the best hot dogs in
the Grapefruit League -- a
foot-long Kosher with mus-
tard arid sauerkraut is $4.50.
"What a beautiful day and
a beautiful ballpark," I said to
the guy with the walkie-talkie
sharing the elevator with me. I
figured he was some .club
employee making sure every-
thing was in order in the
booths above.


Then I noticed the name on
his badge Kevin McClatchy.
Yeah, that Kevin McClatchy,
owner of the Pittsburgh
Pirates.
A man of the people.
Major League Baseball
needs more like him.

Orlosky wins game


with pinch HR


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


It was only a matter of time
before Tim Orlosky would
catch fire.
The University of South
Florida senior is playing the
brand of baseball that made
him one of the top players
at Venice High in the early
2000s.
A standout for the Indians
and then two years at Day-
tona Beach Community Col-
lege, Orlosky struggled in his
first season at USF last year.
And it took him a while to
get into the groove this year.
But the left-handed
swinging left fielder is official-
ly hot.
Over his past four games,
Orlosky is 6-for-10 at the
plate to raise his season aver-
age to .291 (16-for-55).
It all started last Friday in
a Conference USA game
against Memphis. Pinch-hit-
ting in the ninth inning of a
5-5 game, Orlosky powered a
home run to right field, the
deciding blow in a 6-5 Bull
victory. It was his third hom-
er of the season.
The next day, Orlosky was
2-for-4 in a win over Mem-
phis. On Sunday, Orlosky
was 2-for-3. And on Tuesday
against Stetson, he was 1-
for-2.
USF (18-13) is off to
Louisville this weekend for
a big three-game set. Both
teams are 5-1 in CUSA action.
* *
Western Carolina Univers-
ity coach Todd Raleigh has
to be ecstatic about Steve
Strausbaugh.
The freshman right fielder
is exceeding expectations
with a spectacular showing
at the plate so far.
After going 3-for-4 against
Brown Wednesday, Straus-
baugh had raised his average
to a team-leading .372.
"Stack" also leads the


Catamounts in home runs
with five.
West Carolina must have
had a letdown

Brown, losing
10-6. A day
earlier, the

1 team in
the land -
Georgia Tech
8-5. Straus- Orlosky
baugh was
1-for-4 in that one.
Western Carolina is 15-9
on the season. The Cata-
mounts play a three-game
set at Davidson this week-
end.

Arnold Hughey was
roughed up a bit in last
Friday's start against LSU,
giving up nine hits- in 4.2/3
innings. He' allowed four
earned runs.
Hughey got a no-decision
as Auburn ral-lied for a 6-4
victory.
Hughey has been the
Tigers' Friday night pitcher
in big SEC games. This week-
end, Auburn (19-9) plays
host to Arkansas.
. Hughey is 2-2 with a 3.97
ERA. In 45 1/3 innings, he
has fanned 36 and walked
four.

The Gulf Coast University
baseball team lost three to
Florida Southern last week-
end in Lakeland. Venice
products Graig Smith, Mike
Matthews and Brian Mastin
all had rough times against
the sixth-ranked Moccasins
(25-4). '
Smith and Matthews saw
their averages cool to .348 and
.284. Mastin was hit around in
a 1/3 inning relief stint.
Gulf Coast (29-7) turned it
around Tuesday and Wed-
nesday in South Carolina by
winning three games against
Benedict College.


The Venice High junior
varsity baseball team had it
clicking on all cylinders
Thursday night.
Freshman right-handed
pitcher Jason Kaufmfan was
un-hittable. The bats of Mike
Atamanchuk, Tyler ,Eaton,
' Zack Montalbano and Brad
Schmehl were clanging. And
the defense made the plays
in the field.
It all added up to a 10-0
victory over visiting Bishop


Verot.
Kaufman struck out 13
batters and walked three in
firing his no-hitter over six
frames.
Atamanchuk had a home
run over the left field fence
in the second inning for
Venice's first run. Eaton had a


two-run double to left-center
to make it 3-0.
Montalbano had a two-
run single in a four-run third.
Schmehl had a pair of
singles.
Defensively, Venice turned
a double play in the sixth
inning second baseman
Schmehl to shortstop Gerry
Hunek to first baseman Mon-
talbano.
And catcher Eaton threw
out a runner trying to steal in
the fifth inning.
Venice, which was just
1-4-1 at one point of the sea-
son, improved its record to
7-5-2.
"We're starting to get it,"
said head coach Wayne Skel-
ton. "We're coming along."
The starting pitchers on
the Indian JVs have been
Kaufman, Hunek, Montal-
bano and Ryan Angell.


The top hitters have been
Kaufman, Atamanchuk, Sch-
mehl, Montalbano and Ricky
Steranko.
Kaufman leads in RBIs.
Both Kaufman and Ataman-
chuk have one home run
apiece. Montalbano and
Schmehl have been the best
average-wise.
Starting Thursday night
were Hunek at short, Sch-
mehl at second, Steranko in
center, Kaufman on the
mound, Atamanchuk at third,
Montalbano at first, Wade
:Swikle at first, Jackson Boone
in left and Eaton behind the
plate.
Skelton got everyone in.
Other players on the team
include Cole Calhoun, Tom
Collins, Sal Licata, Jimmy
Dethloff, Derek Sandefur,
Chris Willis, Josh Dallam and
Brian Doyle.

Finally, a cool, sun-drenched


day at Tigers' 'the Joker'

Every year, I try to hit at
least one new, spring training
facility.
Joker Marchant Stadium in
Lakeland has long been on
my list, but for one reason or
another, I had never made it
there for a game.
With the Venice High girls
basketball team in the state
semifinals and final in early
March, what better opportu-
nity to check out the Florida
home of the Detroit Tigers.
It takes roughly an hour


and a half from Venice to
Lakeland, depending on traf-
fic. The quickest route is 1-75
to 1-4, but an accident or con-
struction on the Interstate
can mean instant headache.
My favorite route is 1-75 to
Ellenton. Head northeast on
301 to Parrish. Then get on
62 and go east to 37. Head
north on 37 up through
Mulberry and enter Lakeland
through the south "back
door." While this may be a
bit longer than the Inter-
states, it is definitely more
scenic and relaxing.
Built in 1966, Joker March-


ant is one of the oldest spring
training venues.
The stadium benefitted
from a $10 million facelift
in 2003. It was then that a
grassy knoll or berm was
created in left field. This is a
popular spot with sun-
starved nothemers and col-
lege kids, who lay on towels
and catch the action.
Despite taking punches
from Hurricanes Frances and
Jeanne, the folks at Lakeland
Parks and Recreation did' a
great job having the stadium

JOKER from page 8A
looking spruced tip and pol-
ished for opening day.
It's the old-fashioned
charm that works in the
favor of Joker Marchant.
Palm trees lining the outer
facade make a good first im-
pression.
Once inside, one sees an
expansive park with the
largest dimensions of any
spring facility in the Sun-
shine State. It's 340 down the
lines and 420 to center.
While we liked the idea of
sitting on the berm, we de-
cided the giant left field
bleacher section down the left
field line would provide a
good view of the ballyard
and Lake Parker in the back-
ground.
It was aesthetically pleasing
to say the least.
It was a cool day, but with
not a cloud in the sky, things
were quite comfortable in
the sun-drenched bleachers.
As far as the game went,
the Tigers beat the Phillies
3-0. The pitchers were defi-
nicely ahead of the hitters,
as. the Phils only had four
hits on the day.
The Tigers are making
strides to improve. Two years
ago, they were the laughing-
stock of baseball, threatening
to break the Mets' record of
futility. Last year, they took
a big step towards repectabili-
ty. With perennial All-Star
catcher Pudge Rodriguez in
the lineup, the Tigers im-
proved 29 games over 2003.
*This year could be even
better. The Tigers signed


slugging free agent Magglio
Ordonez, who averaged 32
homers per year from 1999-
2003 with the White Sox.
Although longtime favorite
Bobby Higginson may be re-
leased, Tiger fans are excited.
The All-Star game will be
held in Detroit this year.
Baseball fans can still go to
games at Joker Marchant
throughout the summer, as
the Class A Florida State
League Lakeland Tigers are
about to begin their season.

Tax holiday will herald upcoming hurricane season


By letting residents buy hurricane supplies tax
free, legislators hope they will be better prepared
for storms this year, and that essentials will be
more readily available if needed.


BY BARRY MILLMAN
STAFF WRITER


The 12 Days of Christmas
it ain't.
Although it's unlikely to
ever be commemorated in a
Hallmark card, legislators are
hoping their 12-day sales tax
holiday on storm supplies
will encourage Floridians to
review their household hurri-
cane checklists and stock up
to mark the beginning of the
2005 storm season.
Several bipartisan bills that
would create the sales tax
moratorium from June 1
through June 12 were com-
bined and moved swiftly
through committees in both
chambers of the Legislature
on Tuesday.
June 1 marks the official
opening day of the Atlantic
hurricane season, which lasts
until Nov. 30.
The bills vary slightly in the
specific items and price tags
that would be covered under
the moratorium. But amend-
ments are expected to settle
those differences by the time
they complete their journeys
through the committee


process and reach the full
House and Senate for floor
votes.
A summary of the supplies
contained in all the bills
includes:
Portable flashlights and
lanterns.
Portable radios, two-way
radios and weather-band
radios.
Tarpaulins and other flex-
ible waterproof sheeting.
Self-contained first-aid'
kits.
Ground anchor systems
and tie-down kits.
Gas and diesel fuel tanks.
Batteries.
Nonelectrical coolers.,
Portable generators.
Plywood and any hard-
ware necessary to attach it to
a structure.
The bills all contain lan-
guage that would cover less
expensive items such as tape
and twine.
They all also place a.pur-
chase limit of 20 sheets of ply-
wood per day during the
moratorium to discourage
contractors from stocking up
and emptying store invento-
ries.


In addition to raising
awareness of the need to pre-
pare for the coming storm
season, supporters of the leg-
islation say it is another way
to return to taxpayers some of
the sales-tax bonanza reaped
by the state in the waves of
frenzied supply-buying pre-
ceding each of last year's
storms.
Privately, some concerned
officials have also said they
hope it helps alleviate panic
buying and traffic congestion
when the next wave of storms
begin coming ashore in what
is forecast to be another
active hurricane season.
There has been no talk yet
of making the hurricane sup-
ply tax holiday an annual
Florida event like the back-to-.
school supply tax holiday has
become.
Coincidentally, the cost of
providing school clothes and
classroom supplies for the
average household with chil-
dren and equipping the aver-
age household with the sta-
ples of hurricane survival are
similar.
Both are projected to cost,
the state as much as $50 mil-
lion in lost revenue this coin-
ing year, andboth are expect-
ed save the average taxpayer
about $30.

Millman at: bnnillman

Some hurricane supplies, such as flashlights, portable radios, batteries and first-aid kits, could
be tax-free for 12 days in June if the legislators approve proposed measures, which moved
through house and senate committees Tuesday.

Skinny black line needs to be part of forecasting


We're big people. We want and we can
handle the skinny black line. We want
to know the path a hurricane is most
likely to take. The cone of probability (or
uncertainty) doesn't necessarily give us that;
the skinny black line does.
The cone offers several directions a hurri-
cane might take. If a hurricane's cone of prob-
ability covers all of Florida, we really don't
know where to go, except north and hope the
hurricane doesn't follow. The use of the skin-
ny black line puts a little more pressure on
the forecasters to narrow the direction the
nasty winds will flow.
What we'd like most, however, is more sci-
entific research, so that an exact formula can
be put in place that makes that skinny black


line more precise.
This all comes to the fore at this time of
year as the experts gathered at last week's
27th Annual National Hurricane Conference
in New Orleans.
The participants reviewed what happened
in 2004 and what we might expect during this
year's hurricane season that begins June 1
and concludes Nov. 30.
Max Mayfield, the director of the National
Hurricane Center, announced at the meeting
that a poll on the use of the line showed over-
whelming support. Count us among the
majority.
Mayfield said that tremendous improve-
ment has been made in the past 10 to 15
years in hurricane predicting. He said the


forecasting is as accurate as it has ever been.
It should be.
Of course, what people in this part of
Florida remember is the Aug. 13 model that
showed Hurricane Charley scooting up the
west coast, making landfall somewhere near
Tampa.
It wasn't until about 1 p.m. that the
Hurricane Center forecast the storm heading
up Charlotte Harbor, which it did at about 4
p.m..
William Gray, from Colorado State Uni-
versity, told the gathering that increased trop-
ical activity will continue for the next 15 to 20
years.. -
Just because Florida was hit by four differ-
ent hurricanes, and the Charlotte and DeSoto


county areas by a big one in 2004, it doesn't
lessen the possibility of more hits this year or
succeeding years.
That's why we want the skinny black line.
We want it to give us some type of assurance
that we aren't in the path or warning that we
are. Backing up the line will be the cone.
We can handle that. And, in the meantime,
we want scientists to be working to get more
exact data so that forecasting can be an art,
riot just a probable.
While the scientists are working on this,
others involved can take on improving the
shelter system.
Once this is all solved, maybe a scientist
on an even higher level can determine how to
break up or divert hurricanes.


There's nothing


like a good debate


The Sarasota Institute of
Lifetime Learning lecture
series ended the season with
a bang: a debate on the con-
stitutionality of same-sex
marriage.
Lindsey E Martin, director
of media and communication
for Liberty Counsel, spoke
against, and Howard L. Si-
mon, executive director,
American Civil Liberties
Union, spoke for the issue.
As you read these views,
please keep in mind that the
mental health community
views homosexuality as a
given, not a choice. There is
no control over their feelings.
Simon won the initial post
and began his 15 minutes by
explaining that times change,
attitudes change and society
changes with them. There is a
reevaluation of our norms.
For example we now oppose
racial discrimination, and
women may vote.
Nowthere are programs on
TV that not only have a gay
character but also are cen-
tered around gay characters.
Gay couples in most states
can now adopt children, al-
though not in Florida.
Simon then pointed out
that teenagers who are con-
fronting this issue have more
difficulty because of such dis-
crimination in our society. We
should be appalled at' the
higher rate of teenage suicide
among gays who feel ostra-
cized and devalued by society
for something they have no
control over.
'"Don't write discrimina-
tion into the constitution,"
was Simon's plea. He was
referring to an amendment to
ban gay marriage that will
probably be on the 2006 bal-
lot in Florida.
"Gays are married in Que-
bec, British Columbia and
Ontario where I have a home,
and all the trees and buildings
are still standing. ... Nine
countries permit gay mar-
riage."
He explained that just 40
years ago miscegenation was
against the law in some
places in the United States.
That changed. It is inevitable
that this will also change. It
may be delayed but it can not
be prevented.
"Gay marriage is called a
'threat to the institution of
marriage.' I'd like to find out
through debate what the heck
that means. A meal is not
devalued if someone sits next
to me. So marriage is not
devalued if someone else is


married."
"Marriage is a fundamen-
tal institution. The threats to
marriage are poverty, lack of
employment, divorce, abuse,
lack of health insurance -
not gays."
"It is better to make a life-
time commitment."
Simon explained that there
are practical consequences to
not being married. Questions
arise on hospital, health and
emergency decisions, pen-
sions, insurance and benefits
to children as well as to part-
ners.
Gov. Bush and former Sen.
Alan Simpson, R.-Wyo., are
against the amendment. The
latter said, '"A free society is for
everybody," and anyone can
enter into an agreement.-
Martin responded to some
of Simon's points, first stating
that yes, there was "freedom
to enter any kind of relation-
ship." But marriage is still
between one man and one
woman. As for homosexuals,
they are free to enter a mar-
riage agreement, "as long as a
homosexual marries some-
one of the opposite sex."
The audience laughed.
Martin went on with a slip-
pery-slope explanation that
gay marriage is "scary" be-
cause, after all, "could a 30-
year-old shack up with a 13-
year-old? We have to draw the
line." We draw it with po-
lygamy and same sex mar-
riage. "American laws and
society should not be a free-
for-all."
Martin explained that Gov.
Bush agrees marriage is
between one man and one,
woman. He does not believe
that 'an amendment is need-
ed now in the constitution. If
it is needed in the future, then
it would be time to amend it.
Our. society may change
and gays may be character-
ized on TV, but it is not Holly-
wood's place to design our
culture.
As for benefits and finan-
cial aspects of the relation-
ship, there are lawyers and
financial planners who. can
take care of this and therefore
no need for same sex mar-
riage.
Martin continued that the
majority of people are for pre-
serving marriage. "I am not a
bigot, but the essence is one
man one woman ... ." Any-
thing else "erodes commit-
ment and therefore destabi-
lizes the institution and there-
fore more out of wedlock
births and divorce."
She concluded, "The fed-
eral government has always
regulated marriage, polyg-
amy any kind of relation-
ship. Why not allow three
men and one woman to mar-
ry? Why not marry a dog?"
There were audible gasps
from the audience.
Howard Simon's two-min-
ute response included a

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS

Just how often do the bridges need to open?


Editor: .
Thanks to Mayor Calamaras for having the courage to note
that much of the city's traffic problems result from opening of
the bridges over the waterway.
Decades ago, the bridge openings charmed tourists. In
today's busy Venice, bridge-related traffic jams are more likely
to persuade tourists to stay on 1-75 and just bypass Venice next
year.
Newcomers soon learn to stop asking why the bridges must
.be opened for each tall-masted sailboat. But are reasons like,
"They've always done it that way," or, "Local politicians have no
control," really valid? Isn't it time our frustrated drivers were
provided an answer with solid facts?
I'd suggest a forum on the bridge opening at the Venice
Community Center with Katharine Harris and Nancy Detert as
moderators. Speakers could speak for or against the current
system. .'
What is the effect of the bridge opening on vehicular and
pedestrian safety? Why aren't large, seaworthy sailboats in a
hurry willing to use the gulf? How do such sailboats meet time
schedules when using facilities like river locks? How many
pleasure, commercial and military boats require bridge ppen-
ings each year? What is the cost of traffic delays?
We pay taxes to support the waterway. So how about some
representation?

'Story was irresponsible
and unnecessary'
Editor:
We get your newspaper via
mail subscription at our
home in Pennsylvania. The
headline on the newspaper
we got in yesterday's mail,
March 20-22 issue, addressed
the issue of security, at the
Venice airport.
What you have done in
that article is performed
reconnaissance and broad-
cast that reconnaissance to
terrorists. Thanks for giving
those nuts more ideas.
What you also have done is
made resident folks unneces-
sarily concerned.
You are probably unaware
of the security measures that
have been taken by the TSA in
training airport' personnel
and flight instructors regard-
ing suspicious looking per-
sons. Perhaps you should
look into that program before


commenting on negative
access to the airport grounds.
Everyone knows that niore
security is not necessarily
"higher fences," for if a thief
wants to break into private
property he is going to do so
regardless of how high the
fence is, how strong the door
or how big the locks.
I believe your story was
irresponsible and unneces-
sary

No surprise in Inc. poll
Editor:
An interesting poll was
conducted by Inc. magazine.
Forty-seven percent polled
chose Dick Cheney, former (?)
head of Halliburton as most
suited to run a company. At
least a majority didn't chose
Black Bart over the Lone
Ranger. Hi-ho and so it goes.

Social Security was OK
until liberals grabbed it
Editor:
First of all, Social Security
was never intended to be a
welfare program, as it is. Next,
Franklin Roosevelt proposed
a program that was actually
sound and would have
remained actually sound for-
ever had his entire program,
been adopted.
Social Security became a
welfare program because of
"probably" well-meaning lib-
erals who thought it could be
sustained the way it was
modified. They were very
wrong. Anyone who has col-
lected, or is collecting, Social
Security has reaped benefits
far beyond their meager con-
tributions.
The fact that collection for
Social Security stops 'at
$90,000 doesn't mitigate the
fact that benefits are also lim-
ited. There is a maximum that
anyone, wealthy or not, can
collect. You may feel the urge
to gouge the rich, as do many
liberal Democrats, but I don't
think they deserve any worse,
or better, treatment than any-
orine else.
Social Security was meant
to be an adjunct to retirement
savings. The fact that many,
many people have not put
anything aside for their later
years doesn't change any-,
thing.
Finally, members of Con-
gress have voted on their own
salaries and benefits for years.
They have great savings pro-
grams, to which they con-
tribute.
That really is the kind of
program I would like to see -
give the American people
exactly the same options,
health and savings and retire-
ment-wise that our represen-


tatives in Washington get.,
Franklin Roosevelt did not
design a program to take
money out of my wallet and
give it to millionaires, but you
liberals have turned it into
what it is a welfare pro-
gram for the indigent, the stu-
pid and the poor.
It is flawed and always will
be until someone like
President Bush has the guts to
make some changes. He is
advocating bipartisan help;
he hasn't suggested his pro-
gram is the only one. He
needs help!

U.S. Government
is two-faced
Editor:
I am totally appalled, but
not surprised, by the United
States government's attitude
regarding the First Amend-
ment and the Ten Com-
mandments controversy.
The president, justices and
state judiciaries all swear their
oath while placing their hand
on the Bible. Any witness who
is forced or volunteers to tes-
tify in a court of law, is com-
manded to swear "to tell the
truth and nothing but the
truth, so help me God."
If that required rhetoric is
not "endorsing a religion,"
what is? Certainly you are not
swearing by Buddha, Mu-
hammad or any other reli-
gious icon or leader. The
United States government
uses and abuses the Con-
stitution at will to suit their
own purpose, all else be
damned. How much longer
will the American populace
tolerate a two-faced govern-
ment?

WOULD YOU WANT FOOD AND WATER WITHHELD? CALL 207-1111.

Old age doesn't excuse bad driving


SCOPE event on aging gets


White House designation


Senior advice. This is a comment to the "old geezer": I com-
mend you for your service in World War II and being a POW,
but that does not mean it's OK not to be a courteous driver. It
works both ways. It's usually old geezers in the left lane going
slower than the cars in the lane to the right. Stay to the right
and let cars pass you. You are not a police monitor, and it's not
up to you to control speed by driving slow next to another slow
driver. Also, a green light means go, not sit there. And, you don't
have to stop on West Venice Avenue by the restrooms for the
cars on the cross street; there is no stop sign there. If you hap-
pen to be the tour guide for a carload of your Q-Tip friends, can
you do your pointing and breaking from the right lane so we
can pass you? Believe it or not, there are younger people here
who have to go to work in the morning and the evening and
when you're going to get your early bird dinner. We all have to
live here. I know when I get old and can't drive safely, I will hang
up my keys. It's the responsible thing to do.


Sausage and politics. A say-
ing in Illinois claims the two
things the public shouldn't
see being made are sausage
and politics. Even politically
made water seems a strange
thing in Florida. The Peace
River/Manasota Regional
Water Supply Authority serv-
es Charlotte, Sarasota and
DeSoto counties and North
Port. The authority recently
decided that all members
would pay a common rate of
77 cents per 1,000 gallons for
water from the Peace River. To
get Charlotte County to pay
77 cents instead of 51 cents,
Charlotte County got $32 mil-
lion, of which $26 million was
to pay an indebtedness Char-
lotte County got from buying
out General Development in
1990.
In the Gondolier there was
no explanation out of whose
pocket the $32 million came
out of or why such a huge
sum was even necessary. The
key missing ingredient in the
Peace River water formula is a
water impact fee on growth
that wants the water. City of
Venice residents should be
proud their government re-
mains water independent
and supplies its citizens from
an economic and reliable
water source.
Just do it. Instead of
spending the next year talking
about the delivery days of the
Gondolier, how about taking
some action and changing it
now? We do not need a Sun-
day paper. Monday, Wednes-
day, Friday or Tuesday, Thurs-
day, Saturday would be fine.
Just please do it now.
No changes. In answer to
your question, should the city
make Venice Avenue two-lane
and Tampa and Miami one
way, the answer is no. They
should not make any of those
changes.
Not again. Leave the down-
town Venice streets the way
they are; do not make any of
them one way. We moved
here 35 years ago. WestVenice


Avenue used to have angled
parking, then they changed it
to the way it is now.
Wrong size. My opinion is
that Venice stands now quite
like it used to be, but more
parking and high-rise build-
ings would ruin .a beautiful
town.We can't put a size 8 foot
in a size 6 shoe.
Charmless. I'm calling
about the one-way street pro-
posal in Venice. Right now,
since there hasn't been any
study done except for asking
some of the store owners
about parking issues, to
change would take away all of
the charm for just one or two
parking spaces. I cannot pic-
ture what you'd even do to
make one-way streets. Please
don't do that.
Whose fault? Tell me, now
that the city fathers are going
to fine contractors for debris
left on-site when a hurricane
is approaching, who are they
. going to fine when roof tiles
are breaking up in the wind
and becoming missiles?
Those tiles are sometimes re-
quired for building in Venice.
Unending. For an award-
winning newspaper, it seems
to me you could arrange your
articles so a person doesn't
have to go all over the paper
to find the end of the article. I
am most frustrated when you
go to the place' noted and
there is no finish to the article.
Wake up. Let's talk about
these backflow prevention
toys the city is shoving down
our throats. When is the last
time there has been any proof
of any backflow coming into
your neighbor's house or the
city water system?When I had
my house built the city forced
me to have a backflow pre-
venter installed on the house
side of my water meter. This
was not of my choosing; the
city made me put it in and I
had to pay a plumber for it.
Now they're saying that this
instrument is no longer work-
ing properly when it hasn't
been checked. However, they

idea for the signal snafu at

the car in park, run over to the

ly. If someone pushes the
pedestrian signal, it will over-
ride the traffic signal. It works
for other intersections too.

I'm calling as a colleague of
Kathy LaMorte to say that the
positives about this woman
need to be respected. She is a
well-known teacher at our

many teachers as someone
they wish they could be. I
would like someone to at least

this negative and horrible

To those who are in Venice to

people a book to read. Driving
is in the pits. Nobody knows

Sarasota County has once
again been nationally recog-
nized as a value-laden com-
munity: TheWhite House-has
invited Sarasota residents to
participate in conversations
that will ultimately shape the
future vision and direction of
our country.
SCOPE'S Community As-
sembly on Aging, to be held
April 9, has been recognized
as an official event of the
White House's Conference on
Aging. This assembly, hosted
by SCOPE and Senior Friend-
ship Centers, is the first in a
year-long series of assemblies
for SCOPE's current initiative,
Aging the Possibilities.
Citizens are invited to engage
in conversations that gener-
ate ideas and avenues for cre-
ating a feasible and function-
al community for active
aging.
As the baby boomer gener-
ation, the largest population
demographic (78 million) in
the country, begins to enter.
into retirement age, the issue
of aging will be thrust into the
national spotlight. Sarasota
County, an ever-growing
mecca for baby boomers, is
the perfect community to
study such an issue.
Residents of our commu-
nity have the opportunity to


engage in conversations on
the possibilities and chal-
lenges that an aging popula-
tion brings to a community.
What are the unique needs,
talents, resources, and desires
of this population, and how
can we best create a healthy
and enjoyable community for
them?
The outcomes of these
conversations are intended to
help connect people to the is-
sue, create a common vision
for the future of this county
and shape public policy, both
on a local and national level.
Your neighbors have al-
ready been active in the be-
ginning stages of the aging
discussion, and I invite you to
join them.

Way, Sarasota
When: April 9, 9 a.m.-noon
Contact: Suzanne Gregory,
SCOPE associate director, at
(941) 365-8751


In the past three months
SCOPE held eight community
conversations identifying is-
sues such as flexible work-
force options, community de-
sign and intergenerational
activities, which will be ex-
panded upon in this assem-
bly. You will learn what needs
to be done, how you can help
influence the issues and how
you can further commit your-
self to the promotion of
healthy and'active aging.
The next steps are up to
you, and I hope you choose to
be a part of the conversations.


Upon the conclusion of the
assembly, SCOPE will present
a report to the White House
highlighting what local resi-
dents have identified and dis-
cussed as being pertinent
issues surrounding aging.
This report will contribute to
the White House's Conference
on Aging, which develops rec-
ommendations for Congress
and the president.
Numerous noteworthy ag-
ing programs, such as Medi-
care and Medicaid, Social
Security reforms and the
establishment of the National
Institute on Aging, are initia-
tives brought about through
past White House Confer-
ences on Aging.
These conferences are held
once every 10 years, so your
chance is now. Please join
SCOPE in planning for the
futures of both Sarasota
County and our nation. Your
voice will matter for genera-
tions to come.
I am honored to serve as a
member of the SCOPE Aging
Study Steering Committee.
We have an opportunity to set
in'motion a completely new
approach to dealing with the
issues of aging that can have a
significant cultural impact
nationwide. We in Sarasota
County can set the bench-
mark of best practices which
others on a state, national
and even international level
will seek to emulate.
As a recent retiree I am
excited about this process. I
get to be involved in defining
my future! Won't you join me?

Simon believes the issue is
more than marriage between
one woman and one man as
Martin stated again. He sees
that it is all about benefits.
There is an attempt in the
courts now to deny health
benefits in Michigan.
When Gainesville and
Broward County tried to elim-
inate benefits for domestic
partners, the Liberty Council
was there to support that
elimination.
"This is about more than
marriage. This is about ani-
niosity to homosexuals,"


Simon concluded.
As far as I could tell, Simon
won the debate with the most
cogent arguments. Martin
replied with tortured logic.

BUSINESS MATTERS


Pleasing first month for hospital


5 O'Clock Club


ROGER BUTTON
BUSINESS

"At the moment we are
very busy. We're doing, well,
we're doing OK, we'll get
there! The first month I could
not have been more pleased,"
said Venice Regional Medical
Center CEO Melody Trimble
recently to Rotarians.
Although you may not see
it today, behind the scenes
lots of stuff is going on to
make improvements, so the
community can be served
much better. They are all
working on the emergency
room to improve it.
National waiting times for
the ER are 6-8 hours before
being seen by a doctor. Health
Management Associates en-
sures from the time you come
in to the time that you leave it
57 hospitals excluding
recent acquisitions including
Venice and Port Charlotte -
is less than two hours, pri-
marily, Trimble said, because
they are very good at what
they do.
"One of the problems in
Venice is we do not have beds
open right now," she, said. In
the first two weeks Trimble
confirmed they opened 24,
but they have to get more
beds open and it is taking a
little more time.
"You have 100 percent
board-certified ER physicians
in Venice, probably the hard-
est certification a physician
has to get, and I have never
had the privilege to be 'in a
hospital where that is true; it
is just unheard of," comment-
ed Trimble.
Superstore rumor
"I don't have anything con-
firmed. No signed contract at
this stage, so you must treat it
as a rumor," said Wayne Ste-
vens of Publix Supermarkets
in Lakeland when asked if the
company was. planning to
build a new supermarket at
the Laurel Road planned
shopping center planned by
developers North American
Properties.
Dreamed of own business
It opened in December,
but already Louise Webb ad-
mits she is almost outgrowing
her space and looking to
expand her business.
Originally from Montreal,
but having lived in Rochester,
N.Y. for 35 years, she came to
Venice nine years ago when
her husband retired to make
their home in the Plantation.
"I had always dreamed of
having my own business, and
although I had not knitted for
30 years since my three chil-
dren were growing up, I de-
cided Venice need needed a
knitting place," said Webb,
who sells all types of yams
from her store at 225 W.
MiamiAve.
Teaching one-two hour
classes weekly, she is assisted
by Douglas, her husband,
whose experience as an elec-
trical engineer makes him

her boyfriend encouraged her
to open her own store, said

Boutique has moved from a
small unit at 127 E. Tampa
Ave. to the larger 1,400-
square-foot fashion store in

Pittsburgh, lived on Siesta Key
and then in Osprey before
moving to Venice. She hand
selects the specialty, one-of-
a-kind designer shoes, acces-
sory clothing and crystal
ornate jewelry items.
Her success story began
when boyfriend Mark, owner
of the adjoining Barclay Phar-
macy, offered her a showcase
in his store.
"It took off so I opened the
little storefront, naming it
after the island of Ibiza, near
Spain, which I love visiting,"
said Gerzeny. Her mom, Con-
stance, who has helped in the
business since it was started,
retired last week.

opened and Makrodimitras is
negotiating with tenants for
the remaining two retail
spaces.
The whole building devel-

Will property bubble
burst? Experts respond
Retain strong market, con-
firms Meurs: "It is a cause for
concern if interest rates go up,
creating changes in the econ-
omy," said Brian Meurs, pres-
ident of the Venice Board of
Realtors. "There has probably
been a shift to property from
the stock market. The inven-
tory is very low: Take the large
Venetian Golf & River Club,
where there are only 16
homes for sale including two
still under construction, sug-
gesting they are investor
owned. The market may soft-
en, but the bubble is not
going to burst because baby
boomers are still coming in
our direction, which will
retain a strong market for a
while. I am comfortable with
the growth at this time."
Rodgers beginning to see
speculators: "I think it is a
problem where so many peo-
ple are making investments
in new properties," com-
mented Sam Rodgers, presi-
dent of Sam Rodgers ,Devel-
opment Company, which has
been in Florida construction
for 35 years. "In single family
housing I have just begun to
see people buying for specu-
lation, but certainly when,
people are not going to live in
the home it is a danger. Al-
though this period is different
from any preceding period,
there are always similarities.
Going back to the internet
boom in the '90s when in
2000 everything came to an
end. But people are more
rational and rationality does
return. I have confidence be-
cause people are going to
continue coming to Florida.
The baby boomers are begin-
' ning to retire now, so no prob-
lem with Florida. People sell
out to come to Florida. If the
up-north home does not sell,
then it could slow things
down a little."
Buyers backed up, reports
Walter: "The market is ridicu-
lous as we've got people back-
ed up, with two and three
buyers wanting the same pro-
perty," stated commercial
broker Jim Walter of Richard-
son Kleiber Walter. "I don't see
any bubble in the foreseeable
future," continued Walter,
who admitted having been in
the business for 45 years and
never seeing it like this.
"Lower interest rates have
expanded the market in this
area; we are running out of
developable land with sewer
and water, so everybody has
more buyers than sellers."
Market steady, says Saun-
ders: "Last year our revenue
exceeded an incredible $2.5
billion. I'm immensely proud,
and it shows that if you pay
your dues long enough, good
things happen. In 30 years I
have had ups and downs,"
commented Michael Saun-
ders, president of the Michael
Saunders Company. "This
year, 2005 to-date period is
already exceeding last year."
The market is very steady and
she does not see a bubble,
because the boomers are
coming. "People are balanc-
ing portfolios by acquiring
property for investment. It is
a very healthy market."

Don't overlook last-minute tax-savers


D. GRADY HOUGH IR. C.P.A.
BUSINESS COLUMNIST

Time is short, but it's not
too late to trim your 2004 tax
bill. Here are some last-min-
ute moves to consider and
deductions you don't want to
overlook.
Maximize your 2004 IRA
contribution. You have until
April 15 to make deductible
2004 contributions. The max-
imum contribution is $3,000
for 2004 ($3,500 if you were 50
or older last year).
If you changed jobs in
2004, make sure you didn't
have excess Social Security
taxes withheld. Claim credit
for the excess on your Form


1040 if you paid more than
$5,450.
Look into itemizing deduc-
tions if you usually take the
standard deduction. Search
for allowable deductions that
you might have overlooked,
such as the new deduction for
state and local sales taxes in
lieu of deducting state. and
local income taxes.
Medical deductions are al-
lowable to the extent they ex-
ceed 7.5 percent of adjusted
gross income. Don't .forget
items such as eyeglasses and
hearing aids. You can deduct
mileage and parking for med-
ical appointments at 14 cents
a mile. Parking and tolls are
also deductible.
Deduct miles driven for
charitable work at 14 cents a
mile unless you're reimburs-
ed for your expenses. Parking
and tolls are also deductible.
Don't overlook tax prepa-
ration fees, safe deposit costs
and certain investment ad-
vice. They all qualify as mis-
cellaneous deductions, sub-
ject to a 2-percent-of-AGI


limit.
Student loan interest is de-
ductible whether you itemize
or not..
The deduction for quali-'
fled tuition and school expen-
ses increased to $4,000 for
2004., Qualifying amounts for
you, your spouse and depen-
dents may be deductible.
Higher-income taxpayers
might qualify for a deduction
of up to $2,000 for these edu-
cation expenses.
If you're a teacher or teach-
er's aide, you can deduct up to
$250 for classroom supplies
you purchased with your own
money.
If you purchased a hybrid
gas-electric car in 2004, you
may be able to deduct up to
$2,000 of the purchase price.
Call our office for details or
tax filing assistance.

Dog-gone case winds up in court


A Venice dog breeder "repossessed" a dog she
purportedly sold and is now being prosecuted for
grand theft.


BYTOMMYMCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


A Venice breeder is in
canine doo-doo for allegedly
"stealing" one of her own
dogs from a buyer she claims
never paid for it.
"She didn't-steal the dog,
she repossessed it," breeder
Maureen E. Modin's attorney
Matt Rheingans said. "That's
perfectly allowable under the
law."
However, assistant state
attorney Jason Kelly said he is
charging Modin, 54, with
grand theft.
"The (seller's) accusations
are. totally without merit,"
Kelly said.
Rheingans said his theory
of the case is based on simple
logic.
"How can you steal some-
thing you already own?"
Rheingans said.
Modlin entered a not guilty


plea March 15. Her arraign-
ment is scheduled for April
15.
The dog is a golden retriev-
er named "Zepplin."
The price for Zepplin was
$400, the police report stated.
The dog's tale
According to a Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office Prob-
able Cause Affidavit (non-,
arrest complaint), Timothy D.
Thomas of Sarasota stated he
bought the puppy from Mod-
lin in June 2002.
He stated he paid Modlin
$100 down and made addi-
tional payments in the
amount of $200. Modlin
agreed to let Thomas power
wash her home as payment
for the remaining $100.
Thomas admitted he never
did the power wash. He also
said that in repeated contacts
with Modlin, she never told
him to complete the work or


return the dog.
Rover, come over
Thomas stated that on
May 20, 2004, Modlin asked
him if he would allow the dog
to come over to her house
and play with her dogs.
Thomas agreed, and Mod-
lin's boyfriend came over and
picked up Zepplin.
Thomas said he called
Modlin twice on May 23 to
ask if he could pick up the dog
and bring it back home but
was unable to reach her.
The next day Modlin called
Thomas and said she wanted
the dog to stay a couple more
days. Thomas said he reluc-
tantly agreed. However, he
said after that, the dog was
coming home. Thomas called
Modlin on the 26th and 27th
but was unable to reach her.
On May 30, Thomas went
to Modlin's house to pickup
Zepplin but couldn't fifid the
dog or Modlin.
The next day, a friend told
Thomas that Modlin went to
Mexico. Thomas went back to
Modlin's house a week later
but couldn't find the dog or


the woman.
Thomas went to California
but called back and left mes-
sages for Modlin. Thomas
came back on June 15 and was
(finally able to reach Modlin.
She told him Zepplin was
hit by a car and killed.
Conflicting stories
Thomas said as time went
on, Modlin and her boyfriend
told varying stories about
how the dog was supposedly
killed and what happened to
Sits remains.
Thomas' neighbor told
him that Modlin told him that
she had given the dog to
somebody else.
"She told multiple and
conflicting stories," Kelly said,
"and I think she lied to con-
ceal what happened."
When asked what he
meant by "what happened,"
Kelly said, "I think the dog is
still alive."
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office investigators looked
into the case and passed it to
the state attorney's office,
conclhiding that the case was
a civil matter.

An Englewood firm was hit with long-distance
charges of more than $15,000 and was without
voicemail for a day while their phone system's
security was upgraded.


BYGARRYOVERBEY
ASSISTANT ENGLEWOOD EDITOR


Business owners, look out:
You might be the next target
of phone scammers.
Performance Mortgage on
West Dearborn Street was the
latest victim of a scam operat-
ing from outside the United
States.
Someone from the Philip-
pines hacked into the compa-
ny's phone system over the
weekend, -racking up at least
55 hours of long-distance
calls and leaving the owners,


Stephen and Deborah Lee,
with a phone bill that could
exceed $15,000.
. Deborah Lee said Verizon
contacted them Monday after
noticing a surge in long-dis-
tance use starting Saturday
afternoon.,
"There were an unusual
amount of long-distance calls
coming from the Philip-
pines," she said.
The Lees soon learned that
scammers had accessed their
PBX private branch ex-
change and set up a new
voice mailbox labeled "666."





OpenFri. Sat, Su. 9.


At least 55 hours of calls were
made on one line and the
Lees don't know how many
calls were made on their
other five lines.
The scammers were able to
access the PBX easily because
it wasn't a password-protect-
ed system, Lee said.
'It threw us into a tailspin,"
Deborah Lee said, adding the
company's voicemail was
shut down for 24 hours to
clear out the bogus account
and to install a password sys-
tem.
Protect yourself
A Verizon representative
told them they would have to
pay the bill, since the prob-
lem was the result of their


local PBX provider not pass-
word-protecting their system
when, it was installed five
years ago.
The Lees plan to fight this,
Deborah Lee said.
According to Verizon's Web
site, business owners can pro-
tect themselves by following
several steps.
Turn off any remote-
access feature on your PBX,
Protect your passwords
for the PBX or voice mail sys-
tems, and change them often.
Always create a new and
unique password after acti-
vating the equipment.
Regularly review all bill-
ing information and block

Gastric bypass surgery:






Eight months later


BY PEGGI CONLIN-PAQUETTE
CORRESPONDENT

Gastric bypass surgery has
taken care of my weight issue.
Exercising, especially at
Southside Athletic Club, is
taking care of restoring my
muscles and keeping my
heart and body in shape.
The rest is a mental game.
Since everyone reacts dif-
ferently after having gastric
bypass surgery, the mental
aspects following surgery are
ones that need to be worked
through on an individual
basis. I can only speak for
myself as to what I am experi-
encing and can only antici-
pate what I will continue to
experience as I emerge from
my weight-induced cocoon.
First, I found I need to
redefine myself. For so long I
was the fat jolly person. I hid a
lot of hurt behind those
pounds. The person people
saw on the outside, even my
family, was not the person
who was dying inside. Now
that I have lost more than 100
pounds, I cannot define my-
self by my weight. I am find-
ing people treat me different-
ly. Suddenly, I am more ap-
proachable. I am getting
compliments now about my
appearance, and sometimes I
truly do not know how to
react to them because I have
not gotten many compli-
ments before.
But keep them coming; I
will learn to deal with them.
In my mind's eye I am still
grossly obese and probably
will be for a while. When I see
a photograph of myself now, I
am shocked at the person
staring back at me.
In redefining myself, I have
found a whole new person,
one who is not afraid to step
out of the box and try new
things. My relatively new ca-
reer in stand-up comedy is
but one example.
Stand up comedy for me
has a new dimension, as I am
no longer self-conscious
about being on stage. My or-
iginal comedy material dealt
with my weight. After all, I
was out there in front of peo-
ple and I was not going to get
any smaller during my set. I
was afraid that people would


judge me, not by my comedy,
but by my size. Now I have
had to write new material and
enter into a whole new realm
of comedy. I still use weight-
related issues, but as I get
smaller, the amount of time
spent on those jokes lessens
as well.
Being happy with myself
also is a whole new experi-
ence. I can finally say, I enjoy
my own company. I am not as
afraid and self-conscious
about doing things by myself.
I am stepping out of my self-
induced exile. I no longer feel
uncomfortable going places
and meeting and talking to
new people.
I realized the other day that
prior to the surgery, when I
walked, down the street, I
would not look people in the
eye. I diverted my gaze, prob-
ably thinking that if I didn't
look at them, they would not
notice me. I found myself gig-
gling to myself recently as I
realized that now I look peo-
ple straight in the eye and
greet them. I am no longer
ashamed of myself.
My family and friends have
always tried to be supportive
and say things like what a
good person I am inside. But
when your outside doesn't
live up to what society says it
should, no amount of words
can help the overwhelming
feeling of despair. I can't say I
don't feel that despair any-
more. I am afraid I will never
be satisfied with myself, but I
can say I am a whole lot hap-
pier with myself and I think
that happiness shows to oth-
ers.
The second and most chal-
lenging thing in this new
mental game is my conscious
effort to keep food at bay. The
surgery is only a tool in weight
loss. Controlling the mind
and the impulse to eat is the
hard part. I still want to sit
down and eat as before, but I
know I will be sick if I do.
I. still crave the chocolate
and sweets. I have learned
though, that those are things
that I cannot have. I don't
need them. If I wait 10 min-
utes, the cravings usually go
away.
I am able to eat and drink
almost anything now, but in

large to wear.


moderation. While my minds
says "go for it," the body stops
me. A small bite of something
usually does the trick and I
am satisfied.
In the eight months since
my surgery, my life has
changed more than I could
ever expect. I now have tons
of energy. My quality of life
has improved. My outlook on
my future has improved. I
finally am beginning to feel
like a normal human being,
or what I have always thought
a normal human being felt
like.
Shopping has become my
new addiction..
I have never enjoyed shop-
ping because nothing ever fit.
Now I have to reign myself in
because what I buy today
won't fit tomorrow for a far
different reason it will be
too big.
I know that as I become
more comfortable and there
is more time post surgery, I
can fall back into the old
habits. I am trying now to
develop new habits so that
will not happen. I never want
to go back to the way I was
eight months ago. I like the


new me.
I am now about 70 pounds
from my personal goal. I can
see the finish line. I have
boosted my workouts to two a
day. I will make it this time. .1
will maintain it this time. The
one thing I have trouble with
now is patience. I want the
weight off once and for all,
but I know that I still have a
long road ahead of me. My
excitement for life now some-
times overrides my patience
to let things happen in due
time.
The final step in this
process will be surgery to
remove excess skin.
I am hoping that by exer-
cising now, I will not need
much surgery. That surgery,
though, will not be for a while.
I can wait. I have waited this
long.
I made a decision, a life-
altering decision, on July 30,
2004. With the grace of God, it
has been the best decision I
have ever made. A new per-
son is slowly emerging from
this .cocoon. Hopefully she
will be a better person and an

Hospice palliative medicine,



an emerging medical specialty


BYJ. ANNE W. POLLEIT, M.D., FRCPC
GUEST COLUMNIST
March 30 was National
Doctors' Day. Since 1990,
when this day was pro-
claimed by then-President
George H.W. Bush, it has been
promoted as an opportunity
to recognize the contribu-
tions of physicians to the
expansion of knowledge of
health and sickness, to the
development of effective
tools to treat illness and to
remember physicians' com-
passionate care for patients
and families.
A new medical specialty is
emerging that is blending the
cornerstones of the art of
medicine compassion and
understanding with the
science of medicine and its
ever-expanding body of
knowledge. This specialty is
hospice palliative medicine.
When a person and their
family is facing a life-limiting
or life-threatening illness,
there is a need for expert
treatment of physical ills, but
also a need to recognize that a

person suffers in both mind
and body. This impacts not
only the stricken person, but
the entire family. Questions of
the meaning of the illness, the
suffering, the approaching
death, or even the meaning of
life itself may arise as the per-
son and family face the spiri-
tual aspect of their being.
Increasingly, it has been
recognized that pain man-
agement and symptom con-
trol at the end of life require a
special type of medical exper-
tise. And physicians are also
required to deliver communi-
cation in special ways when
discussing issues at the end of
life.
A new group of specialist
physician has arisen the
hospice palliative care physi-
cian. These physicians have
through, either formal or
informal, training become
specialized in the new body
of knowledge of pain control
and symptom management.
Before becoming a hos-
pice palliative care physician,
a physician must be a special-
ist in another area of medi-


disease.
After raising nearly $5,000
for the Alliance for Lupus
Research (ALR) as team cap-
tain of Team D in 2004,
Danielle will again join hun-
dreds of Sarasota community
members who will partici-
pate in the ALR's 2005
Sarasota Walk with Us to
Cure Lupus Walkathon,
scheduled for April 10 on
Siesta Key Beach.
Because of the generous
support of national support-
ers KPMG, sponsors Jules
and Carol B. Green, First
America Bank, Medallion
Homes, Vista Bay Homes,
Manasota Commercial Con-
struction, and many other
regional business and indi-


cine, such' as family practice,
internal medicine, anesthesia
or surgery. Then the physi-
cian must either complete a
one-year residency in hos-
pice palliative medicine or
have cared for at least 50
dying patients in the past two
years of practice. If these
requirements are met, then
there is a rigorous examina-
tion to test the physician's
knowledge of pain manage-
ment, symptom control and
communications skills.
The specialist hospice pal-
liative care physician brings
this new expertise to the care
of patients and families at the
end of life, but also earlier in
the course of a life-threaten-
ing illness. Hospice palliative
care physicians are working
in cancer centers and are
treating patients at the time
of diagnosis. It is critical to
help the person and family
cope with the life-threatening
diagnosis of cancer. Excellent
pain management and symp-
tom control help individuals
better undergo and benefit
from cancer treatments,


regardless of whether or not a
cure may be achieved.
Making the transition from
curative to palliative is diffi-
cult for the person and family,
but it may be hard for the
health care professional, as
well. Hospice palliative care
physicians are skilled in
working with patients, fami-
lies and other health care pro-
fessionals identifying
when cure or life prolonga-
tion may no longer be possi-
ble and easing the focus of
care toward comfort.
At Hospice of Southwest
Florida, the specialist hospice
palliative' care physician
works with the hospice inter-
disciplinary team (which
includes specially trained
nurses, social workers, home
health aides,' chaplains and
volunteers) to provide com-
fort to patients.
Innovative use of medica-
.tions and other therapies,
based on research and clini-
cal experience, extend the
possibilities of pain control

this is no April Fool's Day joke!
Did you know that All
Fool's Day (April 1) has
ancient roots? Before the 4th
century A.D., numerous festi-
vals were held in December
involving celebrations of fool-.
ery and trickery. Later the
Romans changed it to March
and it involved rejoicing and
the donning of disguises.
India's version was a festi-
val of color, and Northern
Europeans honored a Celtic
god of humor in later years.
Mythological explanations
rose up from biblical tradi-
tions to British folklore. An-
thropologists and cultural
historians tied April 1 into the
vernal equinox or springtime.
Many celebrations involv-
ed temporary inversions of
the social order where normal
behavior no longer governed
during the brief transition
when the old world died and
the new cycle of seasons was
born. Finally, the English gave
April Fool's Day its first wide-
spread celebration during the
18th century.
And all this time, I thought
it was an American idea to set
aside a day for tomfoolery
and jokes. Maybe there is a
connection after all, because
this Sunday most Americans
will set their clocks forward
one hour in a celebration we
call Daylight Savings Time.
We welcome folks to come
on down and join in our sup-
per. You don't even need a
reservation. I'm sure there will
be some frivolity and joking
going on among the SVCA's
regular "jesters."

South Venice Civic
Association Development
director She writes a regular
column for this page.


North Port Library back in business


BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR
When the doors opened to
the North Port Library Mon-
day, patrons saw more than
just newly painted and added
spaces.
In the many crevices in the
$1.7 million expansion to the
city's only library, there is 40
percent more adult services
space and nearly three times
the amount for youth ser-
vices.
Alicia McHugh, North Port
Library's head librarian, re-
cently guided members of the
Sarasota County Advisory
Board through the newly re-
furbished library.
McHugh pointed out nu-
merous enhanced facets of
the library beginning with the
new Friends of the Library
area. This is now at the front
of the library near the lobby.
There is a new bookstore for
the Friends. The old Friends
space is being used as a com-
munity bulletin board.
The Nello Juliano meeting
room was revamped to in-
clude a recycled floor. A sec-
ond meeting room was added
in the new addition solely for
children. It includes state-of-
the art equipment, blocks and
much-needed storage space.
"The problem was many of
the children's activities were
held in the Juliano Room,
which shortchanged the

ping up in all the county's libraries.


adults," McHugh said. "Now
the children's conference
room can be used for many
activities. It will always be in
use."
DIY
Another added feature in
both the children and adult
sections of the library is the


automatic checkout areas.
Patrons can select their
books, compact discs; DVDs
or other materials and check
them out through the com-
puters strategically placed in
the library.
The old children's section
was renovated to.allow more
space for magazine and lei-


sure reading. A young-adult
section is now in place where
the old newspaper and maga-
zine section was at the library.
Inside the spacious new chil-
dren's section are new com-
puters for several age levels

CALLIE WEED
GUEST COLUMNIST

Are you wearing shoes
right now? Shoes are a com-
modity we often take for
granted, but there are thou-
sands of children living in
orphanages throughout the
world who do not even have a
pair of shoes to call their own.
Venice Christian School is
partnering with Buckner
Orphan Care International to
send new shoes to orphans in
more than 30 impoverished


nations.
The school will be spon-
soring the "Shoes for Orphan
Souls" drive April 10-24.
Community members can be
a part of this effort by donat-
ing new shoes and socks for
children ages 2-18. Due to
customs regulations, the
shoes and socks must be new.
Take donations to Venice
Christian School's main office
at 1200 Center Road. There is
also a need for monetary
donations to pay for the cost
of shipping the shoes. Call the


school at 496-4411 for more
information.
This is the third shoe drive
that Venice Christian School
has sponsored. Callie Weed,
an alumnus of the school, has
also had the chance to travel
* with Buckner Orphan Care
International to deliver
11,000 pairs of shoes to
orphanages in Romania.

ple gift of a pair of shoes gives
these children hope. It is a
tangible reminder that they
have not been forgotten."
Since 1999, Buckner has
collected and distributed
more than 1 million pairs of
new shoes to children in
nearly 30 countries. Tiffany
Taylor, director of the Buck-
ner SOS project, says the
drive "meets a desperate
need for children living in
orphanages" overseas.
She noted that, while the
program has expanded in
recent years, "Unfortunately,
the needs among orphanages
only continue to grow. That
is why it's more important
than ever for us to collect
new shoes."
"We have been extremely
blessed in our efforts to help
meet some of the desperate

emphasized, adding that the
program continues to ex-
pand its geographical bound-
aries.
So far, the program has
sent shoes to several coun-
tries, including Afghanistan,

China, Croatia, Cuba, Egypt,
Ethiopia, Guatemala, Gu-
yana, Haiti, Honduras, India,
Israel, Kazakhstan, Kenya,
Kosovo, Latvia, Mexico,

Zambia.
Taylor said that even the
smallest donations are appre-
ciated. "Most of the donations
to the shoe drive have come
from families giving one or
two pairs of shoes. Every one
pair of shoes makes a big
difference' to that one child
who receives them."

Batman s sidekick now saving the day for Great Danes


BY STEVE DALE
GUEST COLUMNIST

He made sense of the
Riddler's brainteasers, de-
clawed Catwoman and crack-
ed Egghead into an omelet -
Bang! Zoom! Today, the for-
mer Boy Wonder is putting
the kibosh on the senseless
killing of his favorite dog
breed, the Great Dane.
Best known for his portray-
al of Robin, the super hero's
sidekick on the TV version of
"Batman" (1966-1968), Burt
Ward is still in show business,
but he and his wife, Tracy,
now devote much of their
time to Great Dane Rescue.
They have adopted more
than 3,000 Great Danes over
the years, and currently share
their California home with 50
dogs (including 10 puppies).
Ward doesn't mind talking
about his "Batman" role. He's
polite as he answers ques-
tions he's been asked many
times. Yes, it's true, Frank
Sinatra accepted the role of
The Joker, but just after Cesar
Romero had signed for the
part. Ward doesn't have a
favorite guest star, but says,
"It was so cool working with
people I grew up watching in
the movies, like Vincent Price
(Egghead) and George. Raft
and Tallulah Bankhead."
I When the subject turns to
Great Dane rescue, however,
Ward sounds totally like
Robin. His voice rises and you
just wait for him to holler,
:"Holy, Save the Dogs!"
"When my wife, daughter
and I moved to Riverside
County (Calif.), we thought
about getting a dog a big
dog to fill a big house," says
Ward, talking by phone from
his car (a cell phone, not the
bat phone).
Tracy and Burt met in
1989. Tracy flew to Los An-
geles to determine if her com-
pany should acquire .-Burt's
company (Tracy was a top


exec at her late dad's firm,
known for corporate raids).
Instead, she acquired a hus-
band. At that time, Tracy had
a teacup poodle and two cats.
"Even then, we knew not to
support pet shops because
that's like supporting puppy
mills. We wanted to rescue a
dog." That's exactly what they
wound up doing. Their first
Great Dane, named Beauty,
had been abandoned in a
back yard. One neighbor fed
it scraps so it could survive,
but another neighbor threw
bottles at the pet. Beauty was
scheduled to be euthanized
at a local shelter when the
Wards intervened.
It wasn't long before Tracy
and Burt rescued a second
Great Dane. Just as the Caped
Crusaders used to do, they
showed up at the last minute
to save the day.
Later, Tracy heard about 40
other Danes available for res-
cue. "I somehow figured
those dogs were safe because
they weren't abandoned yet,"
she recalls. Tracy received a
life-altering jolt when she
learned all the dogs had been
destroyed. "I still get goose
bumps when I talk about it,"
she says. "That experience
changed my life. I knew I had
to do something."
In 1995, the Wards began
to do more than a little some-
thing, rescuing. any Great
Danes they could get their
paws on. They also accepted
mastiffs and other giant
breeds, and deaf dalmatians,
creating Great Dane Adop-
tions and Rescue, which was
recently changed to a founda-
tion called Gentle Giants
Rescue and Adoptions Inc.
On rescue organizations
that euthanize deaf dalmatians
or Great Danes rather than
adopt them out, Tracy is ad-
amant. "These dogs are not de-
fective. The hearing-impaired
dogs live with us, and with our
cats and birds and they're


more than perfect in some
ways. They pay attention to
their people. They're easy to
train with hand signals, I even
teach them to lip read. When-
ever I use a hand signal, I say
the command. They actually
do what I say even if they
can't hear. Of course, you want
leashes on them but then,
you should have a leash on all
dogs unless they're in a secure
area."
Despite being diagnosed
as deaf, her Harlequin Great
Danes actually do hear low
tones and some novel
sounds, says Tracy. "I can tell
you they all recognize the ice
cream truck."
Tracy says there are many
misconceptions about Great
Danes. "Don't believe every-
thing you read."
For example, she claims
that if these dogs are altered,
they typically live far longer
than the eight to 10 years sug-
gested in many books. She
maintains that Danes can
easily live to 14 and often
make it to 18 years.
She also says that bloat a
potentially life-threatening
twisting or torsion of the stom-
ach caused by a build up of gas,
most prevalent in deep-chest-
ed dogs like Great Danes -
should never happen. "The
secret is feeding them five
times a day or more."
Burt says as Americans li-ve
increasinglyin urban setting-.,
particularly apartments and
condos, the Great Dane is
actually a perfect match.
"They're couch potatoes, they
don't require a lot of exercise,"
he says. "They're better dogs
for apartments than a little
terrier, who, let's face it is
yappy. Great Danes are very
deliberate."
Unfortunately, too many
apartment and condo man-
agers don't give Danes a
chance, with rules about pets
not exceeding an arbitrary
weight limit of, for example,


25 or 30 pounds. "This is
about ignorance and an ex-
ample of imperfect people
making imperfect rules," says
Burt. "In fact, Great Danes are
perfect for apartments and
condos."
Burt also notes that "Great
Danes are incredibly sensi-
tive. They're crushed when
they're given up by people.
They really do feel sad; dogs
have feelings, too."
Despite their success at
adopting Danes, the Wards
are very picky about who can
adopt the dogs they rescue.
For example, a contract oblig-
ates adoptees to keep their
dogs indoors. Tracy says,
"These are house dogs, not
yard dogs. They have a single
coat of hair with the insula-
tion of a Chihuahua. They
overheat in the sun; when
exposed too much, they get
skin cancer. They're also high-
ly sensitive to the cold."
Life in Southern California
isn't bad, even for dogs wait-
ing to. be adopted. Great
Danes and other dogs roam
freely around the Wards' 5-
acre grounds. They can


lounge by the pool (though
the couple make sure the
dogs don't spend too much
time in the sun), enjoy life in
one of two sprawling, air-con-
ditioned/heated dog houses,
or pass through giant doggy
doors to enter the Ward's
4,000-square-foot home.
Sometimes bathroom sinks
become water bowls. .
Tracy says the only house-
hold hazard is stepping on a
dog if you need to get up in
the middle of the night. "Sure,
why, of course, our bedroom


is their bedroom."
When he's not saving Great
Danes, Burt runs Boy Wonder
Visual Effects, creating daz-
zling special effects for mov-
ies. However, his primary in-
vestment is in dogs.
"If you invest love, you'll
get it back double-fold," Burt
says.

SURGERY from page 1B


inspiration to others.
Several years ago I was
asked what song would I use
to describe myself. I chose,
"Tracks of My Tears" because
it starts out with, "People say
I'm the life of the party
because I tell, a joke or two.
Although I may be laughing
loud and hearty, deep inside
I'm blue." That was me. The
me I tried hard for no one to
know.


If I were asked that same
question today,, I would
choose a verse from a John
Mayer song, "Am I Living It
Right?" with the emphasis on
the word '"living." I hope I am
living it right. Others may
have to answer that for me. I
only know that I have been
blessed to have been .given
this chance at a new life. As I
always say, stay tuned: the
best is yet to be.


LIBRARY' f,, ,,


pets, games and learning
tools.
Work was done to add new,
restrooms, update, electrical
facilities and air conditioning
for the entire building, and
install a fire-suppression sys-,
tern and new glass doors and
windows for employees to
monitor library activities
from their offices.
There is also a small gar-
den area near the youth and
young adult section.
Celebrate
The new construction be-
gan last February. It was ex-
pected to be completed
already: however, McHugh


said staff is elated that it
opened Monday.
Much of the work was paid
for through the one-cent
countywide sales infrastruc-
ture surtax, library impact
fees generated from new
homes being built in the city
and a $500,000 grant from the
state. About 7,200 square feet
was added to the existing
12,500-square-foot structure.
Although the library offi-
cially reopened Monday, a
ribbon-cutting ceremony is
planned for 11 a.m. on April
16.
The event is planned to
celebrate the major expan-
sion and renovation. The


public is invited to the cele-
bration, which will feature
poetry readings, musical en-
tertainment by the Suncoast
Harmony Barbershop Quar-
tet and the Glenallen Ele-
mentary Strings, and an hon-
or guard procession by the
North Port High School
ROTC. Light refreshments will
follow.
Library parking is limited,
so guests should park at
South Biscayne Baptist

BY SHAWN MESSONNIER
GUEST COLUMNIST


Q: I have a problem with my
9-year-old cat Samson. When he
was young he had pneumonia
and recovered following treat-
ment with antibiotics. Since he
was about 6, he began to get
sick several times a year. His
doctor always prescribes antibi-
otics (usually amoxicillin or
Clavamox, sometimes Baytril).
I don't really like giving him
antibiotics for a long time, as I
don't think it's good for him. Do
you have any other sugges-
tions?
A: While the occasional
use of antibiotics usually
won't cause any harm, I agree
that they shouldn't be pre-
scribed unless there is a rea-
son. Also, since Baytril is a
potent antibiotic that has in
rare cases caused blindness
in older cats, I prefer to only
use it for serious infections.
Here are some questions I
would consider.
Does Samson have an
infection that causes the doc-
tor to prescribe antibiotics, or
does the doctor not know
what's wrong and just rou-
tinely reaches for the "magic
pill?"
If he has an infection,
why does he keep developing
the infection? Is his illness
always the same when he
gets sick, or is each illness
different?
For most pets with mild
and nonspecific problems
(pets that are just not feeling
well), I usually use herbal
remedies (such as Herbal


ABX) to act as a natural
"antibiotic," immune-sup-
porting supplements (such
as Immunosupport and
Echinacea-Comp) to help the
pet recover on its own, a
remedy (such as Vibrant) that
helps pets adapt to various
stressors and stimulates
appetite, and maybe a natur-
al antiviral remedy (such as
Engystol) to cover any viral
problems.
Using this approach, most
if not all of my patients with
mild illness recover without
any harm to their systems. In
fact, this approach shows me
that my patients can get bet-
ter on their own with just a
little bit of help from me
without using harsh medica-
tions. If your cat continues to
become ill, I suggest having
the doctor do some testing to
find out why. (Is there an
immune system problem
going on?)

dents from Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte and DeSoto counties each season.


Ringling School of Art

and Design receives

largest private gift in

school's history


STAFF REPORT
The seven-figure cash do-
nation is the largest gift
received since the founding of
the school in 1931. It will be
used to strengthen and ex-
pand current academic pro-
grams and to create new, in-
novadve academic offerings.
Ringling School of Art and
Design recently received a
seven-figure cash gift from
benefactors Ann and Alfred
Goldstein to be used to
strengthen and expand cur-
rent academic programs, and
create new, innovative acade-
mic offerings for the college's
more than 1,000 students.
Ringling School President
Dr. Larry R. Thompson made
the announcement Friday,
Feb. 25, at a special ceremony
on the school's campus at-
tended by the board of trus-
tees, faculty, staff, students
.and community representa-
tives. The college has received
thousands of gifts since its
founding in 1931, but the
Goldstein gift is the first
"seyen-figure cash donation
the institution has received
from a private donor in its
near 74-year history.
Dr. Thompson outlined
details of the gift, which, he
said, "set a new standard of
philanthropy" at the college.
The unique contribution is
designated toward the
school's endowment.
Since fall 2003, the school
and its faculty have been in-
volved in a process to ex-
.amine the college's curricu-
lum and to determine how it
might be expanded to meet


the needs of current and po-
tential students.
At the February'board of
trustees meeting, four new
concentrations and minors
were approved: 1) the Busi-
ness of Art and Design; 2)
Visual Development; 3) Game
Art and Design; and, 4) Digital
Film. All but Digital Film will
begin in fall 2005. The Gold-
stein gift is designed to pro-
vide research and de-
velopment funding for these
new programs, beginning
with the Business of Art and
Design.
In recognition of this con-
tribution, the school's newest
building has been named the
Ann and Alfred Goldstein
Center.
Speaking on behalf of his
wife and himself, Goldstein
commented on their reasons
for establishing this monu-
mental endowment at Ring-
ling School of Art and Design:
'Ann and I are passionate
about the value of a private,
college education. Our gift
will provide the impetus to
expand Ringling School's aca-
demic program offerings, and
will help provide the opportu-
nity of an exceptional educa-
tion for many young people.
"We are pleased to be able
to give back to Sarasota to
enhance its cultural richness.
We hope this gift acts as a cat-
alyst for continued academic
innovation at the college for
years to come and will inspire
others to make significant
investments in arts educa-
tion. We did it for the school,
its students, for the arts and
for the greater community."

This spotless older home sparkles :


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

A brand-new home should
be so clean as this 40-year-old
home in the East gate subdivi-
sion of Venice.
The house has been listed
for sale by Janice Meyer of Exit
Realty Gulf Coast.
Built in 1965, the home is a
three-bedroom, two-bath
split plan, which has been ex-
panded over the years. A for-
mer lanai was enclosed to
make a large family room
across the back of the house
and another lanai and caged
swimming pool was added at
the back of the home.
Flooring throughout the
open floor plan home is new-
er light tile and berber carpet-
ing of a similar tone, which
blends well with the white
walls and white laminate cab-
inetry.
The two bedrooms along,
the west side of the house
serve the present owners as a
master suite. On the other
side of the house the third
bedroom and second bath-
room make an ideal guest
suite.
When the home's original
lanai was incorporated into
the house as a 12-foot by 19-
foot family room, the kitchen
was reworked so that a
counter divides the space
while also facilitating food
service for casual entertain-
ing. The house also has a sep-
arate dining room area mea-
suring 9 feet by 12 feet.
A new liner adds colorful
patterning to the 27-foot by
13-foot pool, which includes

fully tended planting beds

* ing the area with greenery.
There are additional formal
planting beds at the front of
the house.
Windows and sliding doors
throughout the. house have
been replaced with PGT ther-
mopane glass.
Nine ceiling fans, a hu-
midistat. thermal and tinted
windows add to the efficiency
of the home's central air-con-
ditioning system and its heat
pump.


A neighborhood park'is
close by as is the newerVenice
Avenue Publix and other retail
stores.
List price of the house is
$289,900.
The home is located at
1302 Poplar Ave. Take East
Venice Avenue to Cherry and
travel south to Poplar. Turn
left. The house will beithe sec-
ond house on the left.
There will be an open
house Sunday. April 3, 1-4
