Planning commission rejects height limit


Restrictions along West Venice Avenue and a new
method for approving building height exceptions
will go to city council without the advisory
board's support.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR


Finally here
Rails-to-trails program
hits Venice after a
decade of negotiations.


Venice Planning Commis-
sion member Larry Grimard
joked about the nervousness
of the many residents speak-
ing in favor of height restric-
tions Tuesday afternoon.
Grimard was nervous be-
cause he still had to make it to
his car following his vote.
Both sets of height issues


were denied recommenda-
tion by planning commission,
and city council now must
consider them without the
advisory board's support.
These decisions were
made despite at least 50 peo-
ple showing up in support of
height bans, and a petition
with 2,140 signatures. Com-
mission members pointed to
these new rules as being
motivated by politics, high


emotions and misrepresenta-
tions in the media.
"There's a lot more to this
issue than what's been pre-
sented to us," Grimard said.
The first proposal was a
height overlay district along
West Venice Avenue within
the areas south of Barcelona
Avenue, north of Granada
Avenue, east of The Espla-
nade and west of Armada
Road. No new development
could exceed 35 feet in height
if this ban were passed, and
there would be no exceptions
allowed.
The other proposal applies
to all of Venice and changes
how height exceptions are


approved. Terminology would
change to "conditional use"
and citv council would have
the final vote, unlike the cur-
rent system, which puts the
power with planning com-
mission.
For conmissionerThomas
Bixler, the conditional use
proposal was trying to fix
something that isn't broken
and might erode the board's
usefulness.
"If we recommend this to
city council, once again we're
diluting our functions here.
... Politics may be in it, all
kinds of things may be in it,
but that's the case," BLxler
said.


Emotional pleas
Only two of the multitude
of resident speakers were
opposed to the height ban.
Almost every other person
lived within the boundaries of
the plan and asked commis-
sion members to protect the
section of West Venice Avenue
leading up to the beach. One
elderly resident was near
tears as she spoke about the
beauty of the area and the
need to protect it from tower-
ing buildings.
Current zoning in this area
allows structures to reach 55
feet, and up to 95 feet with

High profile eviction acted

on in Grove Terrace


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


On its face, it appears that
Grove Terrace resident Gwen
Mitchell is being evicted for a
crime she did not commit.
"They are trying to evict
her for criminal conduct,"
Kevin Staas, her lawyer said,
"even though the chief law
enforcement officer of this
entire judicial circuit (state
attorney) has already indicat-
ed that no criminal activity
has occurred."
Staas said Mitchell was
arrested and charged with
battery following a fight she
had with neighbors in De-
cember 2004.
Because of that, the Venice


Housing Authority complaint
alleges that Mitchell is in
default of her lease agree-
ment:
"To assure that Tenant ...
shall not engage in any crimi-
nal activity that threatens the
health, safety, or right to
peaceful enjoyment of the ...
premises by other residents
or employees of the Authority,
such activities shall be
grounds for termination of
the Agreement."
Staas said Mitchell's case
against the VHA could tran-
scend the boundaries of the
local courts.

are going to find out is that

12.5 mile long, 100-foot-wide
corridor of land that was rail

price was $11.75 million.,
On Monday, officials from
the City of Venice, Sarasota
County, and The Trust for

Venice Train Depot to cele-
brate the purchase of the land.
The corridor will become a
trail for bikers, walkers and
joggers. It will extend from
just south of Clark Road in
Sarasota to just north of


Center Road in Venice.
However, itmaybe another
year before the rail corridor is
opened as a scenic trail.
"We don't know for sure. We
certainly hope by next year"
said Susan Walsh, Sarasota
County's Public Works Com-

need to secure funding and a
design."
When it is completed the

Osprey helps shape Valencia development


The townhouses that will replace the Flying
Bridge restaurant will be the combined effort'of
the developer and concerned neighbors who
offered opinions about design and density.


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT
A half-dozen residents of
Osprey, representing as many
neighborhoods, met last
week with Thomas G. Wheal-
ey, owner of the Flying Bridge
restaurant and managing
partner of Valencia Develop-
ment Co. L.L.C.
The company has peti-
tioned Sarasota County for a
rezoning of the restaurant
property so that it can devel-
op a $32-million townhouse
community on the water-
!ront. One of few remaining
waterfront restaurants in the
.owunty, the Flying Bridge has
J)een in operation for 35
ears.
The group's objective was
,o get' assurances from
Vhealey that his plans will
;Serve the needs of Osprey as
,well as those of his company.
? Valencia Development's
.proposal is for 14 luxury units
:tj three, three-story buildings
,mn a heavily landscaped tract
Vf land. Each townhouse will
include three bedrooms, an
entertainment center, a den-
study, kitchen, garage and
private boat slip on Little'
Sarasota Bay. A ,wraparound
-deck on the second floor of


each building will offer water
views on all four sides. Entry
into the buildings will be by
elevator.
Two years and counting
The six residents, together
with eight others, have been
meetingwithWhealeyfor more.
than 27 months to define what
they hope he will provide, in
addition to the principal ele-
ments of his project
They know that most resi-
dents of Osprey cannot afford
to buy one of the proposed
townhouses, or buy one of
the boat slips he plans to sell
to the public. But public ac-
cess to Little Sarasota and
Dryman bays and the Intra-
coastal Waterway is of grow-
ing concern to the communi-
ty, once a fishing village.
Led by residents of Casey
Key, Rivendell, South Bay, the'
Oaks, Pine Run and Black-
burn Point'Woods neighbor-
hoods and the Osprey Civic
Association, the Osprey
group has pressed Whealey to
find a way to provide boat
slips for the public on the
Flying Bridge property and in
the adjoining Bellagio devel-
opment. They would be avail-
able to boat owners who do
not buy the $2-million town-


houses.
Whealey agreed. His devel-
opment company plans to
spend $320,000 more than the
original $5.2-million invest-
ment to buy the restaurant to
replace deteriorating boat.
slips along the shore line.
In cooperation with Bel-
lagio, they will also dredge a
deeper channel from their
properties to the waterway.
Both steps were taken in re-
sponse to a request from the
Osprey group, according to
one of its members.
In all, 60 boat slips will be
available for sale, including
the 14 assigned to those who
buy townhouses on the Flying
Bridge property.
Agreeable
A first proposal byValencia
Development was rejected by
the group.
Valencia, which ha6 devel-
oped and built hotel proper-
ties for more than 20 years,
considered creating a vaca-
tion resort on .the site. But the
community is residential, and
the neighbors want to keep it
that way.
Two journeyed to the
northeast to examine condo-
minium and townhouse de-
velopments, then brought
back drawings and designs to
share with Valencia. Whealey
and his associates incorporat-
ed several of the features into
the planned design.
A second proposal, for
which Valencia had received

County commission on April 13.


preliminary approval, was
also rejected by the group. It
called for 42 units in a five-
story building.
Density was the concern of
his neighbors. Again Whealey
agreed to another design, the.
one submitted in a rezoning
petition last month to the
county commission.
He responded to questions
about building height, agree-
ing to a 35-foot maximum.


Setbacks from the road also
troubled the group. Whealey
agreed to adding space be-
tween the buildings and the
roadway.
"Hle's agreed to everything
we've asked for," said Judith
Johnson, president of the
Osprey Civic Association,
"and then some. He promised
,to plant trees on the north
side of Blackburn Point Road
as beautification. He wasn't


required to do that. And he's
initiated a plan and brought
in the two developments to
the east of his property to pre-
sent to the county a pedestri-
an-bike path along Blackburn
Point Road. The three devel-
opers are paying the cost of
the design."
Valencia Development's
rezoning petition goes. before
the county commission. on
April 13.


Correction
An article in the March 26 Venice Gondolier Sun had an error in geography, the Curry
Creek Bridge (Roberts Bay) is south Of the Shakett Creek (two Dona Bay bridges). The only
bridges that are being raised to 12 feet are those over Dona Bay.
Clarification
City council member Bill Willson voted in favor of the city acquiring the LaGuna Drive
House built in 1896, the oldest house in the city- to save it from the wrecking ball. Fran
Valencic's column in Sunday's paper omitted Willson's name from a list of council members
to be thanked for the decision, implying he voted against it.

Levine lawsuit takes a hit


Civil charges against former city manager were
dismissed "with prejudice" in a suit alleging false


arrest and assault and bat

BY JJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

Allegations by a local resi-
dent and president of the
Venice Taxpayers League that
the former city manager took
part in a "malicious prosecu-
tion" of him have been tossed
out.
Now attorneys for Herb
Levine must consider wheth-
er to appeal that decision by
Judge Nancy Donnellan.
Levine filed the wrongful and
malicious arrest lawsuit last
November naming the city,
former safety director Joe
Slapp, Mayor Dean Cala-
maras and former city man-
ager George Hunt.
A motion for rehearing on
dismissing Hunt from the
case was scheduled for 10
a.m. today, April 6, but the
decision late last week led
to the cancellation of the
hear-ing in circuit court in
Venice.
"From the plaintiff's point
of view, we are evaluating
whether or not an appeal (of
this decision) should be filed,"
said Peter Baranowicz, attor-
ney for Levine. '
All of this stems from when
Levine was arrested at a city
council budget meeting Sept.
24, 2002..Both the mayor
and Levine's lawsuit seem to
agree that it started with an
exchange of words between
Levine and Hunt,, who criti-


ttery.

cized VTL publications as
being untrue. Levine called
Hunt a liar.
Then the name calling be-
gan in earnest, with council
members tossing words like
"hyena" at Levine, and then
the VTL president calling for-
mer council member Jim
Myers a "drunk."

"Basically, (former
city manager)
George (Hunt) did-
n't have anything to
do with this case,
anything."

Andrew Froman,
the attorney for Hunt

Stories differ from there,
with the lawsuit claiming
Levine was immediately
arrested, with Slapp using
"intentional force" to cause
"bodily injury" and "hospi-
talization." The lawsuit
claims Cala-maras is
responsible because he told
Slapp to arrest Levine.
Criminal charges were
never filed against Levine.
Andrew Froman, the attor-


ney for Hunt, said the ruling
makes sense because the
former city
manager had
nothing to
thdo wither two Levine
prosecuting
Levine. Hunt
was not
men tioned
by name in
either of
the other-two Levine
counts -
false arrest and assault and
battery.
"Basically, George didn't
have anything to do with this
case, anything," Froman said.
The lawsuit, which could
yield up to a'$100,000 judg-
ment against the city, contin-
ues against Slapp, Calamaras
and the city Defense of Ven-
ice is being handled by City
Attorney Bob Anderson.
Anderson said legal de-
fense was offered to Hunt,
who is no longer a city em-
ployee, but the former city
manager declined and hired
his own attorney.
"We continue to aggres-
sively litigate on behalf of the
city, Dean Calamaras and Joe
Slapp," Anderson said.
Levine is seeking a jury
trial on the remaining allega-
tions.

Hiner cleared,
returns to duty
Venice Fire Department
Capt. Jeff Hiner returned to
duty ;at the Venice Fire De-
partment as of March 31.
Hiner was put on paid
administrative leave of ab-
sence during an internal
investigation. He had alleged-
ly engaged in "inappropriate"
activity while on duty.
City Manager Marty Black.
.said Tuesday an internal in-
vestigation showed that Hiner
was off duty at the time of
the alleged "inappropriate"
activity.
"From the city's perspec-
tive, he did not leave his ac-
tive duty position. ... The
allegations of him leaving his
post are unfounded," Black
said.
Black admitted the inci-


dent involves a domestic dis-
pute issue, but details were
not revealed."'.
However, a police report
was filed as part of the investi-
gation. The nature of the call
was listed as a family cdistur-
bance, according to the re-
port.
The city's internal, investi-
gation revealed that Hiner
was off duty during the ap-
proximately two hours in
question, according to Black.
The internal investigation
is closed unless a sheriff's de-
partment investigation would
provide reason to reopen the
case.
First house-moving
quote arrives
The city manager's office
has received its first quote on
how much relocating South


County's oldest house will
cost, and it's not cheap.
In the meantime, another
resident letter protesting the
decision and spending of tax
dollars ,for restoration has
arrived and council member
John Simmonds appears, to
agree the city shouldn't be
involved, even though he
voted in favor of the decision.
'As a Florida native, I per-
sonally see it as an old house
of little to no historical value.
...-I see these things as just
old stuff," Simmqnds wrote
in his response letter April 4.
, Early estimates have total
costs on relocation and re-
storation of the 1896 home as
high as $1 million. The first
set of moving quotes is at
$66,000 with at least one
more quote expected, accord-
ing to City Manager Marty


Black.
The home's new owners
offered the house, at 811.
Laguna Drive, to the city
because they planned to de-
molish it and build a new
house. It will be relocated
across from city hall on
Granada Avenue.
The Venice Area Historical
Society is planning a tour of
historic homes a year from
now, April 2006, as a fund-rais-
*er for the restoration project. A
donation fund also has been
opened at Gulf Coast Com-
munity Foundation of Ven-
ice, and the new owners
have verbally committed to
donate costs they would
have spent to demolish the
house.

HEIGHT fom page 1A
special approval. Many of the
existing buildings are single-
family homes, and only two
- a condominium complex
- exceeds 35 feet.
"West Venice Avenue is the
public face of Venice," said
Robert Farrell, a 37-year resi-
dent where the height ban
would be. "Not a single per-
son visits or lives here without
West Venice Avenue defining
their vision of this city.
"Restricting these proper-
ties to 35 feet will not make
them worthless. It simply
means a handful of people
will only make a few million
rather than many millions (of
dollars)."
Commission members
agreed that 95 feet is too tall
for this area.
A blanket ban at 35 feet,
however, was too restrictive
for them. By a 6-1 vote, mem-
bers asked city council to
consider adding a special
exceptions process allowing.
up to an additional 15 feet -
for a total of 50 feet in this
area.
The lone holdout was Ben-
ny Weaver, who pointed to
city council asking staff to
create this ban and the nu-
merous residents living in the
proposed height overlay dis-
trict asking for it to be passed.
"They want nothing more
than 35 feet built in their
neighborhood, period," Weav-
er said. "It doesn't take a rock-
et scientist to figure this out."
Final say
As for height everywhere
else in the city, there were a
handful of reasons why com-


missioners rejected the new
approval method called "con-
ditional use" that removes
height issues from the special
exception process.
Some members pointed to
how the existing system works
fine, with only five requests for
extra height since 1999; four of
them were granted.
And if anyone disagrees
with planning commission,
they can pay $300 to have city
council rehear the proposal.
That is what's happening for a
downtown building granted
an additional 9 feet. Commis-
sioners voted against this pro-
posal 5-2, with Weaver and
chair John Osmulski support-
ing conditional use.
"I'm from the school that
only fixes things that are bro-
ken," Grimard said. "What's
broken with the special ex-
ceptions as they are today?"
Another issue was unrelat-
ed to height, according to vice
chair Jerry Toweiy. Wording of
the conditional use ordinance
requires Mediterranean-
themed architecture in order
to receive additional height.
This means the recently-
approved Charleston Place
condominiums at nearly 47
feet -. a Carolina/Southern
theme design could not
have been approved,. regard-
less of compatibility with
neighboring developments.
"I don't see how height re-
lates to Mediterranean style,"
Towery said. "I don't know
that I would want to be im-
posing Mediterranean style
everywhere throughout the
city.

POLICE. .lA


Unlike what happened to
the utilities department last
year, the city is not seeking
private management of the
police department, Black
said. The city manager wants
to resolve "long-standing.
problems" that go beyond the
two most recent police chiefs,
the retired Joe Slapp and cur-
rent chief Jim Hanks.
"It's clear to in me there are
several factions in the police
department that are compet-
ing with one another. They
need to work together," Black
said.
Police officers, sergeants
and lieutenants remain with-
out a union contract, but
Black said this study is unre-
lated to the latest negotia-
tions.
Fraternal Order of Police
representatives have asked
for across-the-board pay rais-
es of 6 percent for three con-
secutive years, while the city
contends salary step amounts


it has offered are based on
what neighboring police de-
partments are paying. Black
has said the city no longer
wants to do across-the-board
pay raises for any employee
and base salaries on market
demands.
FOP representative Paul
Murphy said the city manager
has every right to conduct this
type of review. He questioned
the city manager's reference
to "factions" within the police
department.
"They seem like a very co-
hesive group that has worked
together and done an excel-
lent job," Murphy said. "If
indeed they are any 'factions,'
which I'm not aware of, they
certainly haven't affected the
level of service and safety in
protecting the community"
Bids are expected to be
awarded next week and the
study finished by Sept. 6.

Police Department lost
accreditation width the Com-
mission for Florida Law En-
forcement Accreditation Inc.
The department was first
accredited Oct. 8, 1997, reac-
credited Feb. 14, 2001, and
had certification in its grasp
for another three years.
However, the agency lost
its grip in a blizzard of poor
record-keeping and retrieval,
according to a Venice Gondo-
lier Sun story in February
2004.
This is a voluntary process,
but the accreditation is a
stamp of approval the city
manager's office would like to
see applied to Venice law
enforcement.
Hanks has been police
chief since April 10, 2001. He
replaced Slapp, who served as
chief from May 1993 to April
2001.
Slapp is now retired.
Black said the department
is working toward reaccredi-
tation.
Areas of review outlined in


the bid proposal include:
Public perception -
Interviews of city staff and cit-
izen surveys.
Management staffing -
Responsibilities of police
chief, 'deputy chief and cap-
tain, to provide recommen-
dations on the command
structure.
Officer staffing- Existing
staffing levels and the need to
either add or delete. patrol
routes.
Organization Disci-
plinary action protocol.
Internal communication
- Effectiveness of depart-
mental policies.
Operations systems -
Current system of collecting,
storing and retrieving police
records, statistics and dis-
patches.
Facilities Usefulness of
training facilities, fleet and
department buildings. -

Emergency relief
Volunteer Connections is
the main agency that recruits
and deploys unaffiliated vol-
unteers in times of emer-
gency. It has a separate data-
base of 2,400 volunteers with
special skills or experience in
emergency relief efforts.
When Hurricane Charley
made a direct hit on Port
Charlotte and Punta Gorda in
Charlotte County, it was near-
ly two weeks before local vol-
unteer centers could be
opened. French coordinated
the efforts of people wanting
to help' and to help, manage
the delivery of critical sup-
plies from two Sarasota
County locations.
"We not only deployed vol-
unteers seven days a week, 10
hours a day, but also coordi-
nated over $70,000 of supplies
and equipment to areas of
need. Truckloads of dona-'
tions came up almost daily
from Centex Homes out of
FortMyers.
, "There are many stories of
wonderful people helping
people in need. The volunteer
recruitment during the hurri-
canes was the largest volun-
teer effort in the history of the
country."
Hundreds of volunteers
went door-to-door looking for
people in need, and helped
those without food and emer-
gency supplies, said French.
Busloads of people came to
help. Volunteers accepted and
distributed donations. Corp-
orations donated truckloads
of goods and supplies, were
unloaded, sorted, re-crated
and distributed by volunteers
to places in need.
Opportunities
Volunteer Connections has
many other volunteer oppor-
tunities available to those
seeking to help out in the
community.
"Our volunteers serve with
the human services agencies,
in educational settings, with
arts organizations and with
faith-based groups. Volun-
teers can register on the Web
site and search for volunteer
opportunities by categories,"
she said.
RSVP volunteers 55 and
older serve in a diverse range
of nonprofit organizations,
public agencies and faith-
based groups. Adults age 19-


55 are active in all sectors of
the community, said French.
"Their volunteer time is
often worked around job and
family responsibilities. It
helps them keep in touch
with the needs of the commu-
nity," she said.
Teen volunteers serve their
community in order to get
credit toward the Bright Fu-
tures' Florida Academic
Scholars Award and to earn a
half or full credit toward grad-
uation. Nearly 700 youth,
mostly from Venice High

School, participated last year.
The 75 hours they complete
take place in nursing homes,
in schools, at hospitals, animal
shelters and at other nonprof-
it organizations.
"The hours serve as a valu-
able learning tool for the teens
and benefit the many organil-
zations that are found in our
community," French said.
For the occasional or
"episodic" volunteer or family
looking for ways to contribute
to the community, there are
programs like Brush Up
Sarasota, where more than a
dozen groups painted more
than 20 houses in Sarasota
and Venice last year. The
homeowners are disabled or
are financially unable to


afford painting for their
homes. The groups also
spruced up the front yards
and trimmed hedges.
"We love our volunteers.
Our challenge is really with
the number of people retiring
- to place those people as
more and more come down
to Florida," said French. "We
have to be ready for that tech-
nologically."

"We believe there is a pat-
tern of retaliatory conduct on
the part of the VHA against
tenants who have been out-
spoken and made com-
plaints," Staas said, "which
she has."
Staas said Mitchell was one
of the driving forces behind
an April 26, 2004, petition
calling for the ouster of VHA
Executive Director Peter Lo-
pez. Staas said the petition
was signed by 19 Grove Ter-
race tenants:
"Of the 19 people, accord-
ing to Gwen," Staas said,
"there are only two people
that have not had eviction
proceedings against them in
one form or another."
Said another way, 17 of the
19 people who signed the
petition to oust Lopez were
themselves served with evic-
tion notices, according to
Staas.
In a letter dated April 26,
2004, Mitchell's brother, Willie
J. Mitchell, wrote of Lopez:
"he cannot and will not relate
to the residents..." and "... he


has 'favored' specific resi-
dents to create a system of
distrust and hostilities among
residents. He is described as
'cold, uncaring, uninformed,
insensitive and lacking integ-
rity...'"
Staas said since Jan. 13
2004, 11 evictions have been
filed against VHA tenants. Of
those 11, eight signed the
petition complaining about
Lopez, he said.
Staas said that for six years
prior to Lopez taking over the
VHA in January 2004, there
was no civil 'litigation be-
tween the VHA and the ten-
ants.

Code of conduct for students updated


Among the changes: Cell phones
with cameras are nixed. So are mopeds,
and bicycle helmets will be required.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

The annual revision of the
student code of conduct was
among items approved under
the consent agepda at Tuesday
evening's meeting of. the
Sarasota County School Board..
The 2005-06 conduct code
will, be printed in a booklet
and distributed to every stu-
dent and parent or guardian
at the beginning of next
school year. It sets out the
rules for proper behavior on
school campuses throughout
the county .- and the conse-
quences for not abiding.,
Students are responsible
for knowing and pbeying the
code,, and for accepting the
consequences for actions that
violate the code.
The code covers: student
rights and responsibilities;'
parent roles and responsibili-
ties; dispensing medications;-


dress codes; expression; elec-
tronic communication
devices; protection against
bullying; conduct on buses;
backpack-locker-vehicle
searches; grading; access to
records; anonymous surveys;
disruptive students; discipli-
nary actions; weapons; drugs;
gang activity; and immuniza-
tion requirements.
Changes
Changes to the code this
year are relatively minor, ac-
cording to Linda Post, student
expulsion coordinator, with
the Sarasota County School
Board.
The biggest revision, said
Post, has to do with a ban on
cell phones with cameras.
Rules were expanded to pro-
hibit not only pager, cell
phone or two-way radio use
during school hours (unless
granted permission by an
adult), but also digital and


camera phones, and other
camera devices during school
hours.
"You can imagine the
problem we'd have with cell
phones that could take a pic-
ture in the locker room," Post
said.
Other changes include an
expanded explanation of at-
tendance rules, describing
excused versus unexcused
absences, absence reports
and family vacations. Next
school year, parents and
guardians will have only three
days to provide the school
with a written explanation for
their child's absence to be
considered, excused. Previous
rules had no time limit.,
Another new section of the
code describes vehicle use on
school district property Rules
now require proof of a valid
driver license to park on,
school property, if space is
available. New rules also refer
to Florida state law requiring
a bicycle rider or passenger
under 16 years of age to wear
a bicycle helmet. Schools
continue to prohibit motor-,
cycles or mopeds.


New school policies approved, unveiled


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRgIER


A host of new policies were
advertised and others .ap,-
proved on Tuesday by the.
Sarasota.. County School
Board. Here is a recap of the
board's actions.
A budget policy revision
was approved authorizing the
school district to maintain, if
feasible, a fund balance re-
serve in the range of 7.5 per-
cent to 10 percent, instead of
"at least 4 percent." The policy
change was approved last year
by the board but a related pol-
icy was inadvertently not up-
dated.' The adopted policy.
makes the correction.


cover unforeseen events like
revenue shortfalls, under-pro-
jections of student enrollment
and unexpected increases in
insurance and other operating
expenses.
The district currently has a
reserve of $25 million, said Al
Weidner, budget executive
director, who added the dis-
trict's reserve will likely be $40
million-$50 million by the end
of the year.
A new policy for report
cards was also adopted. It
requires 'all policies relating to
the content and issuance of
student report cards be set
forth in the student progres-
:sion plan.


Fund reserves are neces- Advertised

School Board also voted to
advertise six proposed policy
revisions. The changes are not
new, say school officials, but
bring out-of-date policies
into alignment with existing
practice.
A new policy bans the use
of personal telephones or oth-
er communication devices by
students during school hours.
Also out for public com-
ment will be a slightly revised
policy on vehicle: use by stu-
dents requiring they have a
valid driver license.
Superintendent Gary Nor-
ris amended the policy mak-
ing principals responsible for
automobile use guidelines.
Norris said he would like to
have final approval of all
school guidelines.

Red tide disappearing

- at least for now


BYGAVIN OFF
STAFF WRITER
The red tide. bloom that
has irritated area beachgoers
for months is gone.
Scientists at Mote Marine
Laboratory said red tide sam-
ples fell below detectable lev-
els in Sarasota Bay late last
week.
Indications suggest the
entire algae bloom, which
once stretched from. Fort My-
ers to northern Sarasota
County, is dissipating
"We don't know for sure,"
said Richard Pierce, senior
scientist and director of
Mote's Center for Ecotoxicol-
ogy. "It's possible it's offshore,
but with these strong westerly
winds, it's doubtful."
If red tide were in the area,
it islikely the recent westerly
winds would have blown it
onshore, sending sunbathers
home with runny noses, itchy
* throats and Watery eyes.
But that hasn't been the
case.
"I think it's just run its
course," Pierce said.
The bloom was first dis-
covered Dec. 20, stretching
from Cedar Key to Clearwater.
By Feb. 2. it ranged from
Tarpon Springs to Engle-
wood, and, about 50 miles
into the gulf.
By Feb. 23, it expanded
from northern Sarasota
County to Fort Myers, killing
thousands of fish off Man-
asota Key.


At one point, the bloom
contained more than 90 mil-
lion red tide cells per liter.
According to Mote, the
more cells per liter, the more
devastating the bloom's ef-
fects.
Less than 1,000 cells per
liter: no effects
5,000 cells per liter: shell-
fish harvesting closed
10,000 cells per liter: res-
piratory irritation
50,000 cells per liter: res-
piratory irritation and possi-
ble fish kills
More than a million cells
per liter: respiratory irritation,
fish kills and water discol-
oration.
Samples last week con-
tained less than 1,000 cells
per liter.
Pierce said Mote scientists
will begin a three-day cruise
next week; collecting water
samples from Sarasota to
Marco Island. They perform-
ed, a similar study earlier this
year, when the bloom was at
full strength.
Pierce said scientists
should discover how condi-
tions in the water have since
changed.
"We should learn a lot," he
said.
Red tide is the naturally
occurring microscopic algae
Karenia brevis, which forms
only in the Gulf of Mexico,
and releases toxins that are
deadly to fish, birds and
fiarine mammals, and harm-
ful to humans.


South County?
The district will provide
four trainers from its pre-
school department for the
two-hour presentation. The
presentation includes a lec-
ture "Parent Attitudes and
the Home Environment" -
followed by breakout sessions
on early literacy, com-
munications and playing with
your child.
A complimentary dinner
will be held prior to the train-


gap," Norris said.
Sandi Chapnick, PALS spe-,
cialist who coordinates vol-
unteer programs for the
school district, is working
with SURE to provide some of
the materials.'
"It's the first time the dis-
trict has worked with SURE,"
Chapnick said.
"We hope it empowers
parents and helps, them real-
ize there is a lot they can do at
home before they ever enter a
school."
The partnership includes
Sarasota County Public
Schools, the Early Learning
Coalition and SURE.
Barnes and Noble is sup-


plying bags for the April pre-
sentation.
The district is providing
books and pamphlets. Others
are purchasing paper, pencils
and crayons so each parent
will have something to take
home, Chapnick said.
SURE is a community or-
ganization composed of con-
gregations (Catholic, Pro-
testant and Jewish) represent-
ing the major ethnic groups
in Sarasota County.
It focuses attention on
issues of justice and fairness.

follow. Babysitting is being
provided by church volun-

"We're going to see if it
works," said Russell, who
hopes to expand the pro-
gram. "We are actively look-
ing for South County congre-
gations to partner with. We
have people in our organiza-
tion from Venice, but no con-
gregations from that area at

Empowerment
On Feb. 28 Gary Norris,
superintendent of the Sara-
sota County Public Schools,
told a gathering of 300 SURE
members at the First United
Methodist Church that he is
committed to providing staff
and curriculum for the train-
ing program for parents of
preschool children' in this
unprecedented partnership

"Making sure all students

The Venice High softball
team was a bit sluggish Tues-

break.
The Lady Indians had just
enough to post a 4-2 victory
over the Charlotte Lady Tar-
pons in a game played in
Punta Gorda.
Winning pitcher Heather
Laird improved her record to
9-0 by allowing two hits over

When things aren't going
well, you find ways to lose
games.
It happened to slumping
Venice High Tuesday night,
as visiting Manatee escaped
town with a 5-4 victory in a
game that lasted nine
innings.
The win improved the
Hurricanes to 8-9 overall and
3-3 in the district. Venice,
which lost its third straight,
fell to 8-8 overall and 3-2 in
district.
The Indians had a lot of
strong individual perfor-
mances Tuesday night, but
team play was lacking.
Venice had chances to win
in the bottom of the seventh
and eighth innings, and also
blew another chance to tie it
in the ninth.
With the score tied at 4-4,
the Indians had the bases
loaded in the seventh but
came away empty.
A leadoff double in the
eighth by Jordan Lucas was
wasted when he was cut
down at third trying to ad-

Hughey cranks up winner over Razorbacks


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Arnold Hughey cranked
up a good one, and ,his
Auburn University team is
better off because of it.
Hughey, the senior'left-
handed pitcher, was in fine
form last Friday, pitching the
Tigers to a big Southeast
Conference victory over visit-
ing Arkansas.
Hughey allowed just four
hits and one run over six


innings work as Auburn
scored a 5-1 victory, over the
Razorbacks. He struck out 10,
and walked none,
Auburn ended up taking
two out of three games
against Arkansas.
The Tigers, who played
Georgia Tech Tuesday, were
21-10 overall and 5-4 in the
SEC after the Arkansas
series. Auburn travels to
Mississippi State this week-
end for a three-game set.
There is a possibility. that


Hughey could face another
Venice High grad MSU
designated hitter Brian La-
ninfa in the opener of the
set Friday night.
On the season, Hughey is
3-2 with a 3.51 ERA. He has
struck out 46 and walked just
four in 51 innings work.
Meanwhile at MSU, La-
ninfa has slumped to .237
for the Bulldogs. He is sec-
ond on the team in walks
with 13.
MSU lost a pair of tough
2-1 games at Tennessee Sun-
day., The Bulldogs are 17-7
overall and 4-4 in the SEC.
MSU played Samford
Tuesday and will take on
Birmingham Southern Wed-
nesday.


Tim Orlosky continues to
rise to the occasion for the
University of South Florida
baseball team.
The senior outfielder's
solo home run was huge in
a 3-2 victory at Louisville
Sunday in the second game
of a CUSA doubleheader. It
was his fourth homer of the
season. USF also won the
first game, 8-2.
USF is, now alone on top
of CUSA with a record of
7-1. The Bulls are 20-13 over-
all.
South Florida played home
to Central Florida Tuesday.
* *
The Gulf Coast University
baseball team remains hot.
The Eagles improved their
record to 31-8 following a


doubleheader sweep at Nova
Southeastern Sunday. Regu-
lar catcher Graig Smith en-
joyed a day as designated
hitter. He was a combined
2-for-6 width a home run, his
third ofthe season.
Smith had a game to be
proud of last Wednesday,
March 30. He was 3-for-7
with five RBIs..
' On the season, Smith. is
hitting .315 with 25 RBIs.
Last Friday, April 1, Mike
Matthews had his second
home run of the season in a
6-5 loss to Nova Southeast-
ern in 10 innings. ::

Preventing abuse by raising awareness


The Child Protection Center is working

to make sure everyone knows

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month.


BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR

The giant blue ribbons
popping up on trees and mar-
quees near schools and local
businesses are symbolic re-
minders of Florida's children
who perished at the hands of
abusers.
Businesses or schools that
want to promote an anti-
abuse message are welcome
to join in the Child Abuse


Prevention campaign for
April, according to Hel Hedley
of the Child Protection Center
Inc. of Sarasota. All they have
to do is contact the CPC, tie
their own ribbon in a visible
place or wear a blue ribbon
for others to see and ask
what it represents, he said.
Hedley and a group of
volunteers displayed a large
ribbon Friday at the Child
Protection Center in South'
Venice to bring recognition to


the ongoing problem.,
As the large ribbon blew in
the wind, passers-by honked
their horns in support of the
group's effort to educate and
promote children's safety.

The agendas
The agency, in cooperation
with several other providers,
is planning major activities
throughout April to help bet-
ter educate those who work
with children on signs of child
abuse and potential abduc-
tors.
In addition to an Abuse
Awareness kick-off breakfast
in Sarasota Tuesday morning,
which included recognition


of law enforcement and other
officials who help protect
children, the center is spon-
soring two upcoming semi-
nars in South and North
County.
Through a grant from Gulf
Coast Community Founda-'
tion of Venice, a seminar is
planned from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
on April 15. Topics include:
computer crimes by Detective
David Grant; shaken baby
syndrome; child abduction
prevention; visions 'of hope,
images of healing by Kathleen
Home; how to'talk to your
child about safety by Hedley
and Jeni Silver; and a panel
presentation by community


providers. The workshop is
planned at the Venice Holiday
Inn, off U.S. 41. The cost for
early registration is $10, or
$15 on the day of the event.
The second event is 9 a.m.-
noon on April 29 at the
Sudakoff Center at the Uni-
versity of South Florida, Sara-
sota Campus. Topics include:
child risk assessments by Dr.
Walter Lambert, assistant
statewide medical director;
traumatic response by Dr.
Michael Rank, associate pro-
fessor for the USF School of
Social Work; and the connec-
tion between animal abuse
and child abuse, from' the'
Child Protection Center.


There is no charge for this
seminar.
"There is now research out
about how (some) people:
treat their pets relates to ho,.
they ureat children," Hedle.
said. "We are hoping child
care providers, teachers, la
enforcement and other heal
providers will come to thes
seminars. We have seats avails
able at each right now. They
will prove to be very helpful."
To register for the Child
Protection Center's seminars,'

Gallagher
BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


For someone who isn't a
declared candidate for the
2006 governor's race, Florida's
Chief Financial Officer cer-
tainly sounded like one.
Tom Gallagher was in
Englewood Saturday night as
the keynote speaker for the
first Patriot Dinner and Dance
sponsored by the North Port
Area Republican Club and the
Republican Club of South
Sarasota County.
In response to a direct
question from the audience
about the race, Gallagher said'
he was "doing everything he
could not to'foreclose the
opportunity."
Gallagher spent most of
his 20 minutes talking about
opportunities in the state to
the 150 party faithful who
attended the event. But the
speech sounded like a rally-
ing cry designed to sway the
South County Republicans to
Gallagher's side, should he
choose to run.
It has been widely rumored
that Gallagher will seek the
2006 Republican nomination,
but he has not officially de-
clared his candidacy.
A transplant to the state,
Gallagher said he has begun
to look at Florida through
the eyes of his son, who was
born in Florida. Several times,
he emphasized the state was
a special place and that we
must do what we could to
"keep -it a: special place for
our children and grandchil-
dren."
To that end, he recom-
mended looking for leaders
who recognize the impor-
tance of faith, family and free-
dom, particularly faith.
"We need leaders like
George W. Bush who recog-
nize. that there is a place for
faith in public life," Gallagher
said, before reciting what
sounded like a campaign
platform.
His positions
Concerning the recent
controversy over the death of
Terri Schiavo, the 41-year-old
Pinellas Park woman who
died last Thursday after a
judge ordered her feeding
tube be removed, Gallagher
mentioned judges first. He
called for "judges who will
enforce the law and not legis-
late from the bench."
Opposing gay, marriages,
he advocated support for a
constitutional amendment
that defined marriage as the
union between a man and a
woman.
And he called for eliminat-
ing the state's intangibles tax,
a "bullet point" he said he'd
first jotted down almost 25
years ago when he first
entered the state Legislature
as a representative from
Miami-Dade County.
"We need a compassionate
but lean government," Gal-
lagher said. "It's the taxpayer's
money, not the govern-

third figure divides the teacher compensa-
tion by the per-pupil expenditure. The states
are then ranked by percentage of all per-pupil
spending devoted to teacher compensation.
If you complain about the education your
child receives, it could be that the teachers in
your district are underpaid thus, perhaps,
underqualified. If your state is far down the
list, education in your state might need to be
re-evaluated, starting with teachers' salaries.
If you look at the national figure, the per-
cent is 55.63.
At the top of the list, coming in at 64.2 per-
cent is Rhode Island, spending $9,315 per
pupil and $5,978 per teacher. Rhode Island's a
small state; actually, our very smallest. So,
maybe it's easier for that state to pay its
teachers while educating its students.


But, a big state, with many students, New
York, comes in second. That's where every
state should want to be, competing with New
York for spending money on teachers, com-
pared with the cost of teaching our children.
No one wants his or her state to be last.
That means, while the state may be paying a
considerable sum to educate each child, it
may not be paying a high enough percentage
of that amount to its teachers.
Florida ranks 50th.
We pay an average of $6,450 to educate our
children; $3,183 goes to our teachers. Our
percentage is 49.3. We're at the bottom of the
list.
Someone has to be last. but it doesn't have
to be Florida.
We shouldn't accept it.


North Port: The


lessons for Venic


ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST A

. The other day officials of
North Port took the Sarasota-
Manatee Metropolitan Plan-
ning Organization to task for
not giving them a higher pri-
ority on building new roads
and expanding current roads.

parents and then asked for
sympathy because he was an

North Port has dug, and is
digging, and seemingly will
dig in the future, its own
"grave" metaphorically. By
consistently annexing, build-
ing and increasing density, it
now has a traffic problem. It
also has a water problem and
wants other areas to give it
more.water. A series of pro-
growth decisions is creating
major problems.
Venice is. thankfully, no
replica o.orth Port. There is,
however, some reason for
concern about current and
past practices, while action by
city council may head the city
in a different direction.
Citizens, petition
This week a group of citi-
zens, the Coalition of Neigh-
borhood Organizations, pre-
sented the mayor and council
with petitions containing
more than 2,100 signatures
opposing or limiting height
exceptions. Sue Lang, speak-
ing for CNO, said about 75
percent of the signatories
were Venice citizens, with
others from South Venice and
areas that see Venice as their
"hometown." She pointed out
that Envision Venice also
invites input from nearby res-
idents.
Will council allow a height
exception at 215-217 W.
Venice Ave.? The case will be
heard soon and the wrong
decision will change the city
forever. The planning com-
mission approved a 44-foot-
tall building, about twice the
height of other buildings on
that block and at least 9 feet
more than the 35 feet allowed
under current zoning.
Expert sees precedent
I asked a land-use attorney
who specializes in develop-'
ment in Venice and nearby, if
he would use granting the ex-
ception for the 44-foot build-
ing as an argument if he were
representing another proper-
ty owner nearby. At first he
"punted," saying an excep-
tion does not set a legal prece-
dent, which it does not tech-


nically. He then admitted that
he would, in fact, point to the
height exception for this
building if a property owner
he presented had similar
plans.
That is in a nutshell the
issue council must recognize.
There is nothing to prevent,
practically speaking, a series
of 44-foot buildings. The
camels nose will be under the
tent and the downtown will
no longer have a "small-town
feeling."
Many people, I among
them, think that adding some
residential units above store-
fronts may help support the
downtown shop owners.
However, the current zoning
allows for seqInd-floor units
and some are' yiy,ised for
that purpose.
The zoning allows for
third-floor units as well, with-
in the 35-foot limit. At present
there are none "downtown"
along West Venice Avenue.
What must be avoided is
going to a fourth floor. It is
unnecessary and not in the
public interest certainly
not consistent with the views
of citizens expressed in En-
vision Venice meetings.


Supermajority?
I recently attended a con-
ference in Winter Park and
while there visited the "down-
town" and spoke to the city's
planning director and his key
staff.
Winter Park, is a very nice
community that houses the
attractive Rollins College near
its main street, Park Avenue.
The "downtown" is a long
- more than 1 mile nar-
row, two-lane street, nicely
landscaped with planters and
trees of various kinds. It is
paved with bricks, which
extend a short distance down
the cross streets. The build-
ings on Park are almost all
one or two stories, although I
saw at least one exception, a
restored commercial building
that appeared to be about
four stories.
I learned that the city has a
five-person, elected council
and the council handles re-
quests for exceptions. The
planning commission is
strictly advisory.
Venice has been virtually
unique in delegating impor-
tant decisions like height ex-
ceptions to an unelected
commission. Venice City
Council is proposing to
change that policy to one
where it approves exceptions.
It is interesting to note that
to make exceptions more dif-
ficult, Winter Park requires a
"supermajority" of council to
approve an exception four
of five votes.
That is the message that is
so important that our plan-
ning commission and council
understand. In recent years

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


What are we doing to our children?


Editor:
I have been reading the articles concerning testing in our
school system.
In one case a fourth-grade pupil, formerly an excellent stu-
dent, was taking a test. She had been coached for many weeks,
along with other pupils, on all the subjects. Along with all the
other pupils, she was concerned about the results. But about
the middle of the test she became frantic and broke down,
weeping and sobbing. Her teacher tried to comfort her and
urged her to finish. The child was unable to go on and was not
able to finish.
She failed the test entirely and was not allowed to try again.
Why not? Why are we doing this to our children? Do we need to
torture them in order to raise the standards of all the schools in
the area?
I think children's normal feelings are important. Why should
.we make their education so painful. Am I the only one to worry
about this?
In another case a pupil was worried about her coming test.
She worried that she would "tank."
As a former English teacher, I wondered about that word.
My dictionary refers to a tank as a container. One of my sons
helped me out by explaining that "tank" is used in sports.
It seems unsuitable for this purpose. I realize that our won-
derful English language is constantly changing, as we can see
when we compare our present English language with that used
in Shakespeare's day. However, I still think we can try to use
suitable words whenever possible.

Editor:
"There is nothing con-
stant, but change."
In my last letter I suggested
that we control change. Well,
the mobile home dwellers in
Englewood Mobile Gardens
showed us how to effect con-
trolled change: About 130
united and mobilized on a
tour bus and car pool to
Murdock to oppose a devel-
oper's plans to build a road
through their park.
Then, I thought, how do
you control change? Well, if
one mobile home park can.
effect change, why not mobile
home parks uniting county-
wide, maybe statewide, may-
be nationwide? Create a vot-
ing block. Now, those in pow-
er have to deal with united
mobile home dwellers, who


can guess what? vote
them in or out.
Think of all the problems we
face, seemingly alone, when
the insurance companies don't
deliver. The "high-rise guys"
decide to invade your neigh-
borhood. We pay taxes for ser-
vices not received, i.e., part-
time residents. How long can

Asking for trouble
if we don't find
'something for kids
Editor:
I just read an article about
how "children" were given
warnings for their skate-
boarding. I have never laknown
of any other place or people
that are so hypocritical to-
ward our kids.
"The children are our fu-
ture." "Let them lead the way,"
But I have yet to see what the
county has done for our chil-
dren.
No skateboarding, no
BMNXing, no roller blading. I
myself had a BMX bike ramp
and a few jumps in my yard.
In my yard.
And it was wonderful: The
kids that used to not get
along, were all having a great
time after school and were
very respectful toward me
and the neighbors. I had so
many kids that came to my
house and created no prob-
lem, except for a little noise.
Then the county came
around and told us it was
against code to have a skate-
board, BNLX or any type of
ramp in our own yard. So
once again the county has
taken things away from our
future, and it was in my yard.
Give these kids things to
do. Or help. them find a place
to go to do something that
they like. Or let the parents
who have the room and,
patience have jumps, ramps
or whatever for them.
Now that the kids are nrot
here, they are to go some-
where else to play and wind
up getting in trouble, and cer-
tain people call them juvenile
delinquents. They are good
kids. My word, give them a
chance.


Please let the kids be kids.
Let them find their way. Give
them a place to go. Stop with
all the darn golf courses, gas
stations, shopping centers.
We have plenty of space to
build a skate park for, the kids,
in Venice and close to where
they can ride to.
I have tried to go to the
meetings, and it is a joke to try
to get some of the officials to
listen when you bring up
skateboards or BMXers. I
have tried, and will keep try-
ing.

Some things just
don't make sense
Editor:
Blessed is the discovery of
a favorable place to live. The
surface gleams a reflection of
perfection.
For the recipients of emi-
gration, however, more is
more. The city of Venice will
continue to do what is neces-
sary for pur betterment,
including $4,500 per palms
from Ari-not-Florida-zona;
irritating the cops by strug-
gling to agree to a contract; a
city government man giving
his own company a contract.
Incorporate as many de-
velopments as possible to
boost the tax base ... an ex-
emption here, another there.
Are the people ever allowed to
vote? I'd wager that few would
bother.
Growth and change are
inevitable, yet where is the
promised skateboard park?
OffPinebrook would be ideal,
if in fact an extension of
Sarasota Memorial will be,
built on Laurel. Exemptions
here, exemptions there.

Adios. On the body bag issue: Forget about giving the cops
body bags for their cruisers. Let's pass a law that all vehicles
must carry body bags for every occupant, of the car. Also pass a
law that vehicles have a hook welded to their roof so a heli-
copter can just pick up the car and take it away so we can speed
up traffic on the interstate so someone else can get killed.
Forget about making better roads and safer roads. Maybe all
we should do is carry shovels so we can bury the dead on the
side of the road and empty out the cemeteries so we can build
more condos. Florida is becoming ridiculous and I can't wait to
leave.


Photo fan. The pho-

keep them coming. I really
love them.
No time. I just want to let
you know I don't like the
Gondolier Sun coming out on
Sunday either. It's just too
much reading and I don't
have time for it.
Yuck. I realize that I don't
read every article in the
Gondolier Sun, but I've been
reading about the palm trees
like everybody else: $4,500
and how beautiful they are.
And I agree they are; they're
gorgeous. But what's happen-
ing with all these sewage
spills? Where are our priori-
ties? I don't understand why
we're having all these prob-
lems with sewage spills into
our water. I remember going
into the gulf one time about a
year or so ago and the water
was really bad for the first
couple of feet. The next day I
found out there had been a
sewage spill and that water
had been affected. Yuck.
Dumped. I am calling to
register my displeasure with
your shift to three times a
week. The Gondolier Sun was
very welcome on Wednesday
and Saturday. On Saturday we
liked getting your TV book
because it's smaller and more
useful. Also, the comics sec-
tion that you had was wel-
come as well. As far as getting
two papers on Sunday, I think
it's a waste for your advertis-
prs having to pay all that
money for duplication be-
cause we as a family only


need one section of
brochures and yours gets
dumped into the recycling
bin.
Thanks. I wanted to call and
thank you for having the
Sunday issue. I like it very
much. Keep up the good work.
Busted. I was sitting in a
traffic jam near where the
south bypass meets Business
41, and the new bridge we
paid a fortune for with four
lanes right now appears to be
broken. It keeps going up and
down. It's probably some
safety feature that prohibits it
from being operable. I have
an ambulance in front of me
that can't get through traffic.
We have a road crew patching
holes in the asphalt; there's six
of those guys watching one
guy work, blocking one of the
two lanes on the bypass, in
season. Who's making these
decisions? Maybe we need to
re-examine our priorities
here.
Less to read? I would like to
know why you have three
papers a week when there's
less to read in them than the
two papers a week we had. We
have had it for 28 years and
we are going to cancel be-
cause there is nothing about
this paper that we like at all.
In fact we just detest getting
the paper on a Sunday, and
we miss getting a Saturday
paper most of all. We also
miss the TV book and we also
do not like the TV book, We
can hardly read it in the
evening. Nothing about your
new paper is good for us. The
only thing I read right now is

Opinion. As a matter of fact
your Opinion has been excel-
lent these past few months.
Heartless. My husband and
I live on a quiet street on
Venice island four houses
from a stop sign. A tan Blazer
'driven by a woman at high
speed hit and killed our dog
right in front of our house. I'm
sure it was an accident, but
when my husband yelled,
"You killed my dog" when she
got to the stop sign, she sim-
ply looked back and drove off.
I have a 19-month-old daugh-
ter, and several other children
reside on our street. What if
that had been my daughter, or
someone else's? The least this
person could have done was
stop and offer her condo-
lences or ask if there was any
way she could help. Instead,
she will have to livewith her
actions, and I will never
understand how a human
being could be so heartless.
Another opinion. I feel the
people of Venice would be
best served if your newspaper
were delivered on Tuesday,
Thursday and Saturday.
Not so fast. The city of
Venice was quick to cite the
Venice Little Theatre for a fas-
cia violation. However, in
front of the hospital you have
a gas station that has had a
fascia violation since hurri-
cane season. It also has a
damaged sign in front of the
business, which is an eyesore;
it's been like that for three
months. The diner property is.
strewn with trash. I think the
city should get off the Venice
Little Theatre's case and get
after these other violations.
For the birds. I think not
providing sex education' in
the schools is for the birds. I
attended school in the 1940s. I
got pregnant the first week
after being married. My strict
Christian parents didn't let
me date or wear make-up,
and didn't, teach me a thing
about birth' control.. The,
school taught only how to
take care of a child after it was
born. I tried different meth-
ods of birth. control. Finally,
after six children, my sister
told me to go to Planned Par-
enthood. If it wasn't for Plan-
ned Parenthood I probably
would have had 15 kids. It
burns me up when some of
these women are against
teaching birth control. .I
strongly believe our kids
should have information.


A costly bottleneck clogs the housing market


DEREK DUNN-RANKIN
PRESIDENT

In its second year, a red-
hot real estate market is
exhibiting a Florida phenom-
enon seen only briefly in any
25-year period. 0
The price of homes being
sold indicates the average
home sale is 25 or 30 percent
higher than last year. Build-
ing-site prices are on an even
higher trajectory.
While there is every indica-
tion that our area will contin-
ue to see rapid growth, there
is no sure way to tell how long
this price inflation will last.
The hurricanes took a big
chunk of the lower-priced
homes off the market as it
made them unlivable. When
more of the upper-end
homes are being sold, it can
tilt the average sale price sta-
tistic up.
The number of home sales
reported on the multiple list-
ing service is down slightly,
probably for a variety of rea-
sons. Some owners are selling
directly with a sign or by


neighborhood word-of-
mouth. Others who might sell
to move to larger or smaller
quarters, do not have the
range of choice they might
like. The inventory is a good
deal smaller than a year ago.
It will take a while for
developers to create the addi-
tional units to bring demand
and supply into balance. It is
classic economics. In a short-
age, prices are bid up, then
more developers enter the
market, finally supply out-
paces demand and prices sta-
bilize or fall.
In the meantime, home-,
owners have a bigger net
worth from a more valuable
property. They can feel richer
without enjoying any more
amenities than they did last
year.
Established homesteaders
can feel grateful for tax-cap
protection while the city and
county will get a windfall in
higher valuations and tax col-
lections from recent sales.
This will be diminished in the,
short-run by the loss of habit-
able homes in the tax base.
Moderate-income housing
supply is most acute. A 30
percent rise in the cost of
shelter for lower-income
owners or renters has a great-
er impact than it does on a
comfortably well-off retiree
whose housing cost is a
smaller percent of monthly
income.
A renter family with an


after-tax income of $35,000
dollars may have pay a quar-
ter of it, $750 a month, in rent
and utilities. When that bill
goes up by $350, it takes
another $2 an hour in after-
tax wages.
After paying Social
Security and Medicare taxes,
we have plenty of families
taking home less than
$35,000. Reasonably priced
housing for young singles in
our area has always been in
short supply. There is little
available for midrange pro-
fessionals who are not ready
to buy a home.
Lower-income renters can
no longer afford to work here
at current rates. Florida ser-
vice employment pay has
been historically low.
There is a shortage of such
workers in almost every busi-
ness in our community. The
shortage is heightened by the
demand for workers in hurri-
cane recovery and construc-
tion. This labor demand will
be with us for some time.
Wage rates at the lower end
will rise and have a moderate
push on other jobs less affect-
ed by the cost of housing.
We need to do our best to
let home and apartment
developers get going to meet
current and future housing
demand.

publisher and president of

Five of the six height excep-
tions considered by the plan-
ning commission in recent
years have been approved.
The commission did, how-
ever, put some brakes on a
proposed -development -
Villa Lago, on Pinebrook Road
- using as its rationale, in
part, the impact on the area.
That proposal will have to be


revised and resubmitted.
'"Remembering North Port
for a minute, Pinebrook Road
is two lanes in some places
and already is carrying much
more traffic than in the past,
as the Laurel Road area has
developed. Pinebrook Road
will be widened in the future,
but will that be before or after
additional development and
resulting traffic and how
wide will it ultimately have to
be?
I think council and the


planning commission ate
poised to evaluate gro0wh
and height proposals more
carefully.
I think they hear the citi-
zens' voices and also are
watching the poor examples
nearby.
Make your thoughts
known to them.

WILSON WINDOW GLASS & MIRROR
iSome times there are house-hold fix-em-up projects that no one wants
to tackle. Either there's more work for the company than the projects
worth or it's simply a real messy job that you'd rather not get into in
the first place.

That was the situation involving replacing the old style casement
windows in one of Venice's island homes with distinct old style charm.
Our Chamber member was in a real dilemma as no one wanted to
tackle the job ... until she called Chris Day of Wilson Window Glass
& Mirror of Venice & Sarasota.

"Chris and I worked out an accommodating schedule to replace the
four archaic casement windows. He was right on schedule and
workmanship was excellent. Wilson Window Glass & Mirror took on
another project, replacing my table top glass.

"The Wilson Company & Chris Day should. be commended for
outstanding service! He explained that although, he hates replacing
the casement type of windows, someone has to do it!"

Wilson, Window Glass & Mirror is located at 1955 Tamiami Trail,
South in Venice.

CHOOSING A TOOTHPASTE
The choice of a toothpaste is not as important to your oral hygiene as
brushing often, properly, and sufficiently 'long. A tooth paste that
combines a very mild abrt"-*' and a safe detergent is the most
effective way to clean teeth. If you add fluorides to the paste, dental
decay and gum line sensitivity could be reduced. The fluoride can also
repair beginning decay by promoting remineralization of enamel. Some
tooth pastes contain harsher abrasives to remove tobacco stains.
Although they can be effective, daily use may cause excessive wear,
and produce areas of hypersensitivity. Do not brush with table salt
because it is excessively abrasive. Baking soda, popular in the past, it
not as effective as modern toothpastes. Unless one forms a great deal
of tartar, tartar-reducing toothpaste shows only slight advantage over
regular pastes.
Get a paste that you like the taste of, is approved by the.
American Dental Association and then use it properly.

enice residents Jan and Roscoe
Turner are looking for volunteers
to join them in the repair of a
tsunami-ravaged Scout camp in.


Phuket, Thailand.

Murphy's Law holds no
court with Venice resident
Roscoe Turner.
Turner went to Thailand
recently to help in relief
efforts following the devasta-
tion of the tsunami that hit'
Thailand and parts of Indo-
nesia on Christmas Eve, 2004,
killing hundreds of thousands
of people and leaving mil-
lions of others homeless and
without food and shelter. Not
only' were thousands of
homes and families swept out
to sea by the deadly tidal
waves, islands vanished,
crops were devastated and at
least one Thailand naval ship
was left high and dry with its
personnel forced to stay with
their ship, which was without
refrigeration or other corn-,


forts.
An article about the prepa-
ration for that trip appeared
in the Venice Gondolier Sun
on Feb.. 25. Shortly after that
article ran, the man who once
carried weapons as a Special
Forces officer during the
Viemam War, was back in the
Far East carrying school sup-
plies, a checkbook and a
desire to help. He and his fel-
low Special Forces volunteers
delivered refrigerators to that
ship, which since then has
finally been set afloat again.
The Special For.ces Associ-
ation is overseeing the volun-
teer efforts in an agreement
with the Thai government.
By the time he returned to
Venice, he and his fellow vol-
unteers had built a. library,

furnished it with tables, deliv-
ered refrigerators to a Thai-
land naval ship that was
stranded on a sandbar and
decided .hey wanted to :do
more.
No sooner had he returned
to Venice than Turner was
making plans to go back to
Phuket, a 25- by 75-mile is-
land on the other side of the
world. This time he wants to
repair the tsunami-damaged
camp buildings at the Nai
Yang Scout Camp. ,
"That Scout camp is bigger
to them than to us," Turner
said. "One day a week, kids
and teachers wear Scout uni-
forms."
Camp buildings were bad-
ly damaged because of the
tsunami but, because they
were primarily wood con-
struction, repairs can be
made fairly easily, Turner said.
"A lot of the wood can be
reused," he said. "Special
Forces Association will supply
materials if they can supply
the labor. It is all so doable."
The problem is that "they"
do not necessarily know the
best way to repair and build
buildings. They have received
alot of help from "backpacker
hippie types" in the area but
their workmanship has been
pretty poor, Turner said. He
showed photos of cement
block houses built "by such
workers. ,
"They don't lay block," he
said of the workmanship.
"The homes are shoddy'but
they will still stand. The 24
buildings are supposed to be
the same but no two are
alike."
He also would like to see
H1abitat-like rules put into
place to encourage Thai vol-
unteers to keep working on
'the houses. So far, they have
been letting people move in
as soon as a house is finished
and then they lose that per-
son as a volunteer on the
remaining houses. He would
like to' seethe government
step .in and say that no one
gets to move in until all the
houses are finished.-
Turner said the volunteers
need some good direction.
I As a retired member of
Special Forces, Turner helped
provide that direction on the

some cases nearly wiping out


entire populations of some

"The Scout project is right

setting," Turner said. "Volun-
teers can even work on their
tan part of the day."
Turner said the total cost
should be less than $2,000 for

STAFF REPORT


Children First, the Head
Start program in Sarasota
County, has received notifica-
tion that it has been named by
the National Head Start As-
sociation as one of the top 40
Head.. Start programs in the
nation. The National Head
Start Association, which plays
an advocacy and lobbying role
on behalf the popular pre-
school program for children
and families from low-income
homes, celebrates the 40th
anniversary of Head Start this
year, and will honor the "Top
40" at its annual convention
in Orlando in May. Head Start
has been providing childcare
and early education services
to the country's most eco-
nomically disadvantaged chil-
dren continually since its
inception in 1965. Each of the
almost 1,700 programs is
operated independently, eith-
er through a local school sys-
tem or a nonprofit or for-prof-
it agency. In Sarasota County,
Children First, a nonprofit
organization, has run the pro-
gram, which serves almost 400


income eligible children, since
1993. Although Head Start has
come under intense scrutiny
occasionally over the past 40.
years, it has historically
received wide bipartisan sup-
port. "We are thrilled at receiv-
ing such a high honor as being
named a Top 40 program,"
said Philip Tavill, Children
First's Executive Director.
Children First recently
merged with Helen R. Payne
Day Nursery and now serves
550 children, in locations
throughout Sarasota County.
The agency has embarked on
a major capital campaign to
construct a new building in
North Port to serve as an
anchor for its south county
services. More than 90 percent
of the children served live in
homes where the family in-
come is below the federal
poverty level. The program
provides an exceptional pre-
school experience with the
primary goal of ensuring that
each child is ready for kinder-
garten. While academics, es-
pecially literacy., are a major
focus, equally importantt is
the emphasis placed on mak-

Born to Read program named Exemplary


Project by Florida Department of State


STAFF REPORT


Sarasota County's Born to
Read project, a family literacy
program designed to help
parents nurture their babies'
love of learning, has been
named an Exemplary Project
by the Florida Department of
State. Born to Read, which
was submitted for considera-
tion under the state's Library
Services and Technology Act
(LSTA) grant program, is one
of three Exemplary Projects to
be recognized in 2005.
The Born to Read concept
was developed during the
mid-1990s by the American
Library Association, in re-
sponse to- groundbreaking
research on early brain devel-
opment, indicating the criti-
cal need to stimulate babies


in the first months of life.
Patterns established during
this relatively narrow window
of opportunity the first 32
to 35 months create the
platform from which a baby's
learning potential can be fully
developed. The Born to Read
project encourages families
to use the library and attend
storytime programs, read
aloud to children, and play
music in the home, empha-
sizing the correlation of such
activities to cognitive devel-
opment and life skills.
Learning materials distrib-
uted to families include board
and picture books, music
recordings, puppets and in-
teractive language games.
In Sarasota County, the
Born to Read project began in
1999. In its fourth year of state


LSTA funding (October 2004
through September 2005), the
project received $74,000 in
grant money, with local orga-
nizations adding funds and
in-kind donations. Approxi-
mately 4,200 families receive
Born to Read Welcome Baby
Kits at hospitals and birthing
centers annually. More than
2,000 families are currently
registered as Born to Read
participants; of these, about
67 percent were issued first-
time library cards.
The effectiveness of the
Born to Read project is due
in large part to the strong
network of community part-
ners that share the goal of
extending literacy opportuni-
ties to families that have not

Righting the reading problem


Bird's eye view


LYNN REIFERT
CORRESPONDENT

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

This is written in response
to an opinion expressed in the
March 11 Our View editorial,
titled "Questions arise con-
cerning Bush's new voucher
plan."
This editorial suggested that
Gov. Jeb Bush should re-
consider his newest school
voucher plan, extending them
to students who do poorly on
the Florida Comprehensive As-
sessment Test's reading exams.
Currently the vouchers are
available only to students who
have been identified by the
public schools as having spe-
cial educational needs.
The author cited the lack of
accountability of private
schools as the biggest issue
surrounding using public dol-
lars for vouchers. This is mak-
ing the false assumption that
private schools do not moni-
tor their children's reading
progress by testing. The fact
that private schools do riot
administer the FCAT does not
mean they do not measure
the reading progress of their
students.
There are other nationally
riormed, standardized tests

that are valid instruments for
determining reading levels.
Many of these tests, given by
private schools, have been
around longer and have been
more widely used than the
FCAT. Some of the tests used
by private schools are more
diagnostic and provide more
specific information to aid in
planning for remediation.
It was further suggested
that the public schools should
redirect their efforts to im-
prove reading scores. Haven't
they been attempting to im-
prove reading scores, unsuc-
cessfully, for a very long time?
Isn't that precisely why Gov.
Bush is offering the vouchers?
It is true that there are
many reasons why students
are struggling with learning to
read. The proposed solution,
for the state to "pinpoint spe-
cific reasons" so that "each
school can plan a course of
action targeting each prob-
lem area" sounds much easier
and less expensive than it
would be. ,
Schools should have a
pretty good idea why children
have trouble learning to read.
That is, after all, their busi-
ness. They shouldn't need the
state to help them figure that
out. They could even come up
with a plan to improve the
system, with a few outside
suggestions.
Here are some:
Restructure schools, so
that they are no longer group-
ing children chronologically
for instruction. There are
much more effective ways to
group and teach children
with so many varying learn-
ing abilities and styles.
After grouping children
according to specific needs,


adjust the size of the class to
fit the amount of attention
needed by the students in
that class.
Match teaching methods
to learning styles. There are
specific methods of teaching
reading that work better with
certain children than others.
Be sure that children are
perceptually ready to learn to
read before attempting to
teach them to do so.
Train all teachers to work
with students with special
needs.
Insist on strong phonics
based reading instruction.
Identifying specific needs
of the population it serves,
grouping them accordingly
and matching those homoge-
neously grouped children
with talented, specially train-
ed teachers, would definitely
improve student skills. How-
ever, that plan would involve
spending or redistributing
money to train and hire more
specialized teachers.
It may also be needed to
build or add on to schools to
accommodate additional
classrooms. It would also
probably require an act of
Congress to put these radical
changes into effect.
In the meantime, Gov.
Bush's plan to allow school
vouchers for students who
are finding it difficult to learn
to read in public schools is a
good plan. It is also a good use
of taxpayer's money.
Private schools have the
ability to make changes in the
way they group, test and
instruct their students with-
out an act of Congress.

Habitats may stunt growth


New scrub-jay habitats have been identified in
North Port,.and they may include many of the
lots the city and Sarasota County plan to sell.


BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER

Selling the abandoned lots.
may be the least of the city's
problems.
And it has real estate com-
panies worried.
County officials recently
updated their county GIS
maps with expanded loca-
tions of Florida scrub jay
habitats, and from the map,
almost 40 percent of North
Port appears to be scrub-jay
habitat.'


The county has made
updates to its Web site
(http:/ /MapServerl.co.sara-
sota.fl.us/web site/property-
locate/viewer.htm) to help
prospective home builders
see what areas have potential
scrub jay habitat.
However, the county's Web
site makes this disclaimer:
"The Scrub-Jay Habitat Con-
servation plan for Sarasota
County has not been com-
pleted. This map only indi-
cates possible scrub jay habi-
tats and use areas in Sarasota


County and should be used
for informational purposes
only. Determinations con-
cerning sites in or near de-
fined habitat must be made
on a case by case basis by a
competent environmental
professional."
Rhonda Gustitus of Cen-
tury 21 in North Port, said 75
percent of the lots in North
Port may be unbuildable
because of the new scrub jay
areas.
"Right now, according to
the map, the area where the
new elementary school will
be built, at North Salford
Boulevard is all scrub jay
habitat," Gustitus said.

J.J. Andrews
BACK OF 'THE PACK
Perhaps there have been
no better morning runs than
the pair of jaunts I had last
week.
My times were slower
than usual, I struggled to
keep up and there was an
i n t e n s e
urge to ignore that 5 a.m.
alarm and go back to sleep.
And yet, there was a genuine
feeling of satisfaction when
each of those runs became
simply another entry to my
weekly training journal.
I played host to family from
Ohio for just more than a
week. And while I both enjoy
and miss their company, that
hour on the roads as the sun
crept up from the east was
needed especially with all
of the rich, heavy foods we ate
from dining out nearly every
night.
This was the second visit


by parents since relocating
to Florida, and thus far, the
most stressful. Visit No. 1
didn't really count because I
wasn't fully set up, boxes
remained unpacked and the
job opportunity that brought
me here was uncertain.
But during this spring
break, those excuses are
gone. Maps are no longer
needed to navigate, only old
newspaper clippings remain
boxed and so far my
bosses seem inclined to keep
me on the payroll. ',
On top of all this, there's
the social aspect of my girl-
friend meeting the .parents
for the first time. Moderate
pressure is being applied by
a set of aging parents on
their childless son in his early
30s, if you know what I mean.
In other words, I'm sup-
posed to have it pretty to-
gether for this visit.
Dealing with stress
So instead of hiding under
my covers, I hit the roads
with a half dozen other run-
iners and let all those con-
cerns drip away like my
drops of sweat striking the
West Venice. Avenue pave-
ment at 6:15 a.m.
By 7 a.m. I was catching
my breath, sucking on a
water bottle and ready to
resume daily living -shower,


a full day of work and then
a night of family-filled fun
around Venice or back at my
apartment (which was im-
pressively clean my mother
pointed out).
Unlike some pointless sit-
com or another unoriginal
Ben Stiller movie, the par-
ental and younger siblings
visit went off without a hitch.
I was reminded of what
makes family great and the
silliness of trying to impress
blood relatives.
They're going to love you
no matter what. At least,
that's how the unconditional
bond works where I come
from.
Sometimes I forget that
and become more concerned
with whether or not they're
proud of me.
It took pounding out 5.5
miles before the sun was
fully awake to regain that per-
spective.
Oh, and some alone time
after sharing one bathroom
with three women.

A You made your bed when you
elected to bid four hearts, now lie in
it. If partner held a reasonable hand,
he could have competed, but he
chose to pass. He probably has some
spade length, so the enemy contract
might not be a gimme.
Q 5 Neither vulnerable, you hold:
4J76 r Q93 > 97 498643
Partner opens the bidding with two no
trump (20-22). What action do you
take?

A You have a queen and a jack and
one of the worst five-card minors we
have seen in years. Where do you
want to go? As it is, partner will have
to play from hand all the time, so
even eight tricks might be too much.
Pass.
Q 6 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

The bidding has proceeded:

What action do you take?

A This is not really the sort of hand
with which you want to defend four
hearts. We would bid five diamonds.
On a good day, you could make it
when the opponents are cold for 10
or 11 tricks at four hearts.

Pople joins USF Sarasota-Manatee Office of Advancement as associate director


The University of South
Florida Sarasota-Manatee re-
cently appointed Anwar
Pople as associate director of
development.
Pople will be responsible
for a private annual fund pro-
gram for the Sarasota-Man-
atee campus, in addition to
advancing awareness, rela-
tionships and private support
through alumni and donor
research, and cultivation of
stewardship and donor ser-
vices for gifts under $100,000.


"Anwar joins us as our
campus is on the threshold of
a defining moment," said
Campus CEO LaureyT. Stryk-
er. "He brings valuable expe-.
rience to the position as we
continue our fund-raising ini-
tiative for the new Crosley
Campus Center as well as for
our scholarship programs."
The native Bahamian
earned a bachelor's degree in
finance from USF in Tampa.
As a student, he worked with
alumni as a tele-fundraiser.

Prior to com-

Pople also is

It is nice to live in a place
that appreciates its history.
Spearheaded by Rollins Coak-
ley, the Venice Train Depot
was saved. Up the street in
Sarasota, Arnold Berns and
his wife, artist Colleen Cas-

They currently are celebrat-
ing the 100th anniversary of
the construction of the histor-
ical Victorian-era Bispham

4613 South Tamiami Trail.
The house was the first prop-
erty in the county to be desig-

hour river cruise, including
dinner, is $12 per person.
Turner hopes to return
later this month. The rainy

GROWTH from page 6B
Rose Marie Seno, a real
estate agent for Century 21,
said she recently had a police
officer from New York City
come down to look for a prop-
erty for retirement. They
looked at more than 30 lots in
good areas, and it took three
days to find a lot that wasn't in
the "red" or "yellow" zones.
Seno and Gustitus are
weary of selling lots in the
"red" and "yellow" zones,
because they now have to dis-
close to the prospective buyer
that the lot has been designat-
ed as scrub jay habitat and
they may not be able to build
on it.
Terry Davis, of the Davis
Team and Associates, wrote
an e-mail recendy to North
Port Commissioner Fred
Tower III. In it, he said that
he's concerned.
"The first thing a prospec-
tive buyer wants to know if a
lot is in either of the zones. If it
is, they lose interest immedi-
ately." Davis wrote. "Sellers of
the property are upset
because they cannot sell, and
buyers are upset because the

overlay is so broad."
Tower recalls Charlotte
County doing something sim-
ilar to this when Deep Creek
was being developed. He said
it took a very long time to get
it straightened out.
However, he's not heard
anything official from Sara-
- sota County.
The city is on a wait-and-
see status, Tower said.
"We're still issuing building
permits," Barbara Rainy,
building department admin-
istrative service coordinator
said. "No one has told the
building department other-
wise."
Planning Director Sam
Jones has met with represen-
tatives from the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife services, and said the
city is waiting for a response.
"The best thing that resi-
dents can do to keep updated
on this issue is to visit the
Planning and Zoning depart-
ment on the city of North
Port's Web site (ci.north-.
port.fl.us), click on the link for
"departments" and select
Planning and Zoning," Jones
said. "We'll immediately up-
date that site with informa-
tion as we get it."
