Rules were ignored


The financial impact on
the city of Venice for
EPA violations will
linger, even though the
city faces lightest
possible fine.
BYJJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR
An end to years of investi-
gations into Venice Utilities
Department operations may
be in sight.
Yet the question remains:
Why did this happen?
City council will vote
Tuesday on whether to plead
guilty to criminal charges the
city violated Clean Water Act
rules and then covered it up
by forging documents. A pro-
posed agreement with the
U.S. District Attorney's Office
in Tampa stipulates the mini-
mum fine of $110,000, but a
federal judge has the final say
and could bump that up to
more than $1 million.
Four years after these
alleged actions took place,
some people still are wonder-
ing why the utilities depart-
ment ignored permit restric-

tions and intentionally
dumped too much treated
wastewater into Curry Creek
and onto 'the ground at
Knight Trail Park.
City Manager Marty Black
thinks, former management
disagreed with permit restric-
tions and simply ignored them.
"There was a lack of under-
standing of the Clean Water


Act and of the importance of
complying with all of these
conditions," Black said. "We
don't get to have civil disobe-
dience in whether you com-
ply with environmental per-
mit conditions or not. You do
not argue. You just accept
them."

Council to rule on


appeal of extra height


Herb Levine's legal standing to challenge a height
exception downtown will be decided Tuesday.

NEWS EDITOR
Over the years, city council
members and government
officials have gotten used to
hearing complaints and criti-
cisms from resident and
Venice Taxpayers League
president Herb Levine.
Tuesday they get to decide
whether he's legally allowed
to challenge a project.
As a resident, notVTL pres-


ident, Levine paid the $300
required to challenge a spe-
cial exception allowing an
extra 9 feet to a proposed new
building at 215-217 W. Venice
Ave. The planning commis-
sion approved the design,
allowing the four-story build-
ing to reach 44 feet, and only a
hearing in front of city coun-
cil can reverse that.
But according to City
Attorney Bob Anderson's
interpretation of local ordi-


nances, a person must be
legally "aggrieved by the deci-
sion" in order to challenge.
Anderson, along with the
city manager, city clerk and
planning staff, decided Feb. 10
that the two parties must pro-
vide written statements on the
issue. Levine was to justify
why he could appeal, and
building owners Mike and
Addy Griffith through their
attorney Greg Roberts were
to explain why he could not.
Council will make the final
decision on Levine's standing.

County commissioners lobbied on impact fees


Telephone marketing company is contacting
citizens and automatically transferring them
to county lines in order to complain.


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR

The calls began coming
into the call center at the
Sarasota County Administra-
tion Center early Friday
morning. The concern of the
callers was the same -
impact fees imposed by the
county could prohibit young
families from building a
home.
With legislation pending in
the Florida House and Senate
that would drastically change
the ability and way counties
charge impact fees on new
development, it didn't take
long for county officials to
speculate that
an industry
group was
behind the
local calling -
effort,
although they t 7e i a
had no direct
evidence that
was the case. BENNETT
In any
event, they
did confirm that an unnamed
telephone marketing compa-
ny was making the initial
approach to citizens.
"We have determined that
a telephone marketing com-
pany is contacting citizens
and advising them that


'impact fees are making it
hard for young people to buy
houses,' and it appears once
the citizens provide indica-
tion of interest, the call is
being transferred to the coun-
ty's main number," wrote
operations manager Jane
O'Connor in an e-mail to
commissioners explaining
what was happening.
Ironically, O'Connor
noted, many of the citizens
whose calls were transferred
to the county responded they
"do not know" when asked if
they knew what an impact fee
was.
Impact
Impact fees are in a form of
a tax imposed by county gov-
ernments on anyone who
builds a new house, to
account for the impact that
home will have on infrastruc-
ture such as roads, parks,
schools and libraries.
County Administrator Jim
Ley has already estimated
that passage of the bill would
result in a loss of $1.7 million
in fees to fund the county's
road construction program.
On Friday, Ley warned
commissioners in an e-mail
that further analysis of the bill
showed it could also result in
a loss of $3 million in savings
to county utility rate payers


from the refinancing of $50
million in utility bonds. That
in turn, could lead to higher
rates for county water and
sewer customers.
In addition, Ley warned
that another potential prob-
lem existed with the refi-
nanced bonds regarding dis-
closure of the pending legisla-
tion. Ley said county officials
signed the purchase agree-
ments on Thursday without
disclosure because the bill
had not been passed.
'No sense'
The legislation introduced
by Rep. Donna Clarke, R.-
Sarasota, in the House and
Sen. Michael Bennett, R.-
Bradenton, would require
counties and
cities to pro-
vide credits to
builders and ,
developers
for taxes and
assessments d
they paid for
at least the
last 20 years CLARKE
that fund
infrastructure
improvements; limits the
imposition of administrative
fees; and requires a refund if
the fee is not spent within a
specified time.
The bill was already unani-
mously passed by the House
Growth Management Com-
mittee on March 22 and is
currently awaiting action by
the Local Government


Council of the House. In the
Senate, the Regulated
Industries Committee will
hold a hearing on the bill at
2:30 p.m. Monday.
Carol Bracy, interim execu-
tive director of the Florida
Association of Counties, said
Friday that the bill "made no
sense" when governor and
Legislature are both strug-
gling to find ways to pay for
the infrastructure "needed by
the 1,000 people a day that
move to Florida."
Bracy made her remarks in
ta legislative alert sent to
county officials Friday.
"Counties expend a lot of
time and money determining
how to fund facilities and use
a variety of revenue sources
.to do so in as fair a way as.'
possible," Bracy wrote in the
alert. "If impact fees are limit-
ed as suggested in the legisla-
tion, the existing residents
and businesses must pay
more for the schools, roads,
parks water and wastewater
facilities needed to accom-
modate the new growth or
suffer a reduction in levels of
service."
Concurrency
To make up for the loss of
revenue in the transportation
program, Ley told commis-
sioners earlier this week the
county might move to a road
program that, instead of
addressing future needs now
when it was less expensive,
would emphasize roads that


were needed because current
or planned developments
tripped the concurrency
requirements of the county's
comprehensive plan.
Concurrency is a doctrine
that requires the county to
have infrastructure in place
or planned when new devel-
opments reach a certain
point.
Under the new approach,
Ley said, the county would
switch to a
last-one-in- i

approach,
where the
development ". --
that tripped
the concur-
rency switch
would pay
100 percent of LEY
the new
improvements. That would
lead to a situation where
developers, to avoid the last-
in consequence, would
engage in sprawl develop-
ment, the essence of poor
planning.
Opposition
County commissioners
have talked about the pend-
ing legislation twice now and
sent a letter to Clarke and
Bennett expressing their
opposition to the proposal.
County commissioner
Shannon Staub said she
expects someone will raise
the topic for discussion again
during the commission meet-

"There's so many bills

Backflow washes up to counadl


Members will hear the latest on the utilities
requirement affecting 12,000 water customers.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

The words of city council
member Rick Tacy a month
ago seemed to echo the senti-
ments of residents having to
deal with backflow preven-
tion valves.
"This is bureaucratic bum-
bling at its worst,, Tacy said at
the March 8 council meeting.
"The way it's being executed
is like it's a government pro-
gram. There's got to be a more
user-friendly way to imple-
ment this."
Tacy's comments were
made days after hundreds of
residents packed council
chambers during an infohnrma-
tional session to find out why
they must purchase, install
and annually pay private con-
tractors to inspect these
devices.
Very few residents left that
meeting satisfied with the
answers they received.,
Utilities Manager Chris
Sharek will attempt to answer
the questions from council
members at 1:30 p.m.
Tuesday during the regular
city council meeting. Both
Sharek and City Manager
Marty Black have said this
new requirement is being


imposed on the city because
of stricter drinking water reg-
ulations.
The presentation to coun-
cil will outline the regulatory
history dating back to the Safe
Drinkiking Water Act of 1974.
The devices are installed next
to a customer's water meter
reader tb keep water, once it's
left the public supply lines,
from backing up because of a
loss in pressure.
Residents are questioning
the need for these devices
now, and why all costs must
be on the water customer.
Some have asked for back-
flow valves to be placed on
the city-controlled side of
water lines, thus placing
installation and inspection
responsibilities with the city.
While Venice creates and
implements its own program,
Sarasota County Health
Department provides over-
sight and compliance. The
city's plan, for now, has a
backflow prevention valve
required for eve vry water cus-
tomer by 2010 regardless of
contamination risk.
Other agenda items
Here's a recap of other
issues before council mem-
bers Tuesday:


Noise Exemption -
Final reading and passage of
amendment so city garbage
and refuse vehicles no longer
violate noise restrictions. The
amended ordinance allows
garbage trucks to operate
before 10 a.m. on weekends
and holidays. .
A memo from Public
Works Director Larry Heath
stated that resident corh-
plaints to the police depart-
ment about the noise have
prompted the change. The
recycling and refuse depart-
ment recently expanded col-
lection, per city council
approval, to include all but
four holidays.
The first reading passed
without discussion.
New welcome signs
Council will vote on the four
finalists from the contest to
design the city's new
Welcome to Venice signs. A
volunteer committee nar-
rowed the dozen community
submissions down to these
four. Council rejected the
staff's proposed sign a year
ago, though that sign is one of
the final four entries.
Board consolidations -
Council will have the first
reading of an ordinance to
consolidate and revamp sev-w
eral citizen boards. The plan-'
ping commission would
absorb the duties of the Board'


of Zoning Appeals, and the
Venice Historical
Commission would be
renamed the Historic
Preservation Board. With the
name change, the historical
board would also oversee
properties listed on the city's
local registry of historic
places.
Water Conservation
Month Mayor Dean
Calamaras will present a
proclamation to a pair of
water department superin-
tendents designating April as
Water Conservation Month.
Certificate Alan
Bullock, risk analyst for the
city, will be recognized for
completing a national course
specializing in insurance
management for public enti-
ties.
Service award Jaime
Ruiz of the engineering
department will receive a 25-
year service award.
Solid waste change -
Council will vote on amend-

ing an interlocal agreement
between the city and the
county for solid waste dispos-
al. The change is needed to
allow for refuinding of the
1996 bonds for better interest
rates, according to Heath.

CITY NOTES
Lounsbury withdraws
name for finance director
The city's veteran deputy
finance director has with-
drawn her name from consid-
eration for the vacant direc-
tor's position.
JoAnne Lounsbury, in a let-
ter earlier this week, notified
the search committee that
her experience and qualifica-
tions are of greater asset as
the deputy director. The
deputy finance director has
filled in as the interim direc-
tor for more than seven
months and has worked for
the city the past 22 years.
Venice has been without a
full-time finance director
since the retired Mike
McPhail's replacement
abruptly quit. last August
without prior notice.
Mayor Dean Calamaras
listed Lounsbury as among
the top candidates several
months ago, despite her lack
of college training or finance
certifications. She has, how-
ever, worked in the finance
department since 1983 and
served as deputy director
since 1991.
Calamaras announced last
month he's bringing in four to
five candidates for interviews
with other council members.
One of the mayor's responsi-
bilities is to lead charter offi-
cer searches. : :
All the candidates are certi-
fled public accountants,
according to Calamaras.


City to pay $150,000 for
Venice Little Theatre land
Venice has agreed in prin-
ciple to pay $150,000 for three)
parcels of land next to and
owned by Venice Litle1
Theatre.
City council approval is
required to close the deal,;-
which must be finalized by
July 1, according to the pro-
posal.
In essence, this patch olb
land is composed of the alley
and access off of Nokomis-
Avenue, behind the theater,
and leading back to where the,
old Dairy Queen store used tor
be.

Venice High School leads the (drug arrest) pack


The high number of on-campus drug arrests may
reflect a culture of trust and understanding
between police, administrators and students.


EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the sec-
ond in a series of stories on drug
use at Venice High School.
BYTOMMYMCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

Venice High School leads
other high schools in the
number of drug arrests' on
campus.
"VHS leads the pack right
now," Sarasota Ctiunty
Sheriff's Capt. Tim Carney
said. "The other schools have
seen spikes and drops,, but I
guess it's VHS's turn in the
barrel now."
This school year from
August to Feb. 23, there were
17 incidents of drugs on cam-
pus at Venice High School


and 15 arrests, according to
school district spokeswoman
Sheila Weiss and Carney.
"Out of 2,100 students,"
Weiss said recently, "I would-
n't say that is. a 'huge' prob-
lem." .
Carney also stopped short
of calling drugs on the VHS
campus a big problem.
"Schools are' merely a
reflection of society," Carney
said. "There are drugs at' a lot
of schools, and I think it
would be unfair to single out
.Venice."
The numbers
Maybe so, but here are the
numbers for the current
school year up until Feb. 23:
Venice High School 17


incidents, 15 arrests
Booker High School -
four arrests
Riverview High School -
three arrests
Sarasota High School -
three incidents, two arrests.
The schools are of relative-
ly similar size.
Carney, who is in charge of
the district's 26 school
resource officers, said he does
not believe socio-economics
(higher income) plays a part
inVHS's high number of drug
arrests this year.
"We are in a generation
now of kids (and their par-
ents) who do not see marijua-
na as harmful," Carney said.
Carney said the majority of
student arrests are for posses-
sion of marijuana.
However, he said, alcohol
may pose a bigger problem, if
not on the campus, on the
weekends at home.


"You know, alcohol (a
drug) is probably the biggest
challenge we face," Carney
said. 'I had the mother of a
13-year-old girl in my office
who actually stood there and
said, '1 ,ion't mind if she has a
couple of drinks as long as I.
am with her.'"
In addition to the 26 sher-
iff's S Os, there are two
Sarasota Police Department
SROs, pnd one VPD school
resource officer (Dan
Whittaker). North Port has
four SROs.
Each of them works for
and .reports to .his or her
agency.
More arrests that's
a good thing
C4rney put a positive spin
on the high number of drug
arrests on the VHS campus.
"If arrests are a little high, it
tells us a couple of things,"


Carney said. "One, that the
school is not ignoring the
problem, and two, it tells us
how proactive the SROs are
on campus."
Carney praised high
school principals like VHS's
Candy Millington.
"Candy has the courage to
stand up and say, 'If you're
gonna bring drugs on my
campus you're gonna pay for
it.' "
Carney said the higher
number of drug arrests at
VHS shows something you
cannot get merely by showing
up for work everyday.
"If the school creates a cul-
ture of trust and understand-
ing," he said, "the students are,
many times more likely to go


to a trusted adult and report a
crime such as weapons or
drugs."
Carney told of a recent
United States Secret Service
study on school shooters.
"It showed there really is
no profile of a school shooter,
but in almost every case the
shooter had told someone
beforehand," Camey said. "If
the kids like and trust, if the
SRO has rapport with them,
they come forward with
information and that will
help prevent school shoot-
ings and other crimes like
drugs."

Additional judges bill moves forward


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR

Companion bills that
would add circuit .court
judges around the state sur-
vived the first committee
hearings Monday in the state
Legislature.
In the House version of the
bill,: three new judges would
be allowed in the 20th Judicial
Circuit which includes
Charlotte County increas-
ing ithe number of judges on
the bench from 23 to 26. The
Senate version of the bill,
however, would only give the
circuit two new judges.
Besides Charlotte County,
the: 20th Judicial Circuit
includes Lee, Collier,. Glades,


and Hendry counties. Passage
of the measure does -not
mean that the judges would
automatically come to
Charlotte County, as the final
decision on where the judges
would go rests with the
Florida Supreme Court.
Neither bill increases the
number of judges in the 12th
Judicial Circuit which
includes Sarasota, DeSoto
and Manatee counties. That
circuit has 19 judges to han-
dle the caseload coming from
the three counties.
On Monday, both bills
received unanimous approval
from the House Justice
Appropriations Committee
and the Senate Justice
Appropriations Committee.


In the House, the bill now
moves to the Ways and Means
Committee and the Judiciary
Committee, while the Senate
version moves to the Senate
Fiscal Council.
No case
The filing of the bills follows
a recommendation made by
the Florida Supreme Court last
December after the justices


conducted an analysis of the
case load in the various courts
to determine if the number of
judges was adequate.
Overall, the state Supreme
Court recommended the
addition of two appellate
judges, 67 circuit judges and
41 county court judges.
, The bills provide that the
increaseswould be phased in
over the next two years.

RULES from page lA


Both accusations of illegal
dumping happened during
heavy rains. No one knows
how much treated waste-
water was dumped into Curry
Creek during 2001 and at
Knight Trail Park in 2002.
Required instruments that
measure discharges were
"inoperable," according to
the plea agreement, and all
figures reported by the city
were estimates.
Impact to Knight Trail
Former Utilities Director
John Lane went on record
last year as saying the dis-
charges into Curry Creek
were "cleaner than what's
already in Curry Creek," and
he that felt vindicated by a
May 2004 environmental
report saying results were
inconclusive.
Sarasota County, however,
came to a different conclu-
sion regarding its park along
Knights Trail Road. Venice
had an agreement to spray
up to 330,000 gallons of
treated wastewater in habitat
area in order to get rid of it.
But in 2002, utilities offi-
cials opened up the valves on
at least two occasions and let
the treated water run freely.
County officials blame this
action for flooding, erosion,
decaying vegetation and ani-
mals scrambling for new
habitat.
Terms of the agreement
hold Venice accountable for
damages, but the city man-
ager indicates the county will
not seek financial reimburse-
ment.
Reclaimed water is no
longer being dumped there,
and the habitat area is almost
fully recovered, Black said.
County Administrator Jim
Ley said there have been no
formal talks about waiving
financial compensation.
From his perspective, the
major concern was that the
city stop- violating state and
federal environmental laws.
Knight Trail Park is 377
acres of mostly undeveloped


"We don't get to have
civil disobedience in
whether you comply
with environmental
permit conditions or
not. You do not argue.
You just accept them."
City Manager
Marty Black



land that has law enforce-
ment training facilities and
shooting ranges. The illegal
dumping happened on
about a quarter of that land,
undisturbed by development
and hidden behind barbed-
wire fences..
"This is one of the things
Marty said he'd get a handle
on, get control of, and he's
stuck to that commitment,"
Ley said Friday. "I'm glad
they're bringing it to a con-
clusion."
What happens next?
EPA criminal investigator
Daniel Green has been on
the case almost from the
beginning, but said Friday he
still cannot comment on
details until a federal court
judge approves the plea
agreement.
That would be the next
step following city council
approval Tuesday. City repre-
sentatives would appear
before a judge in Tampa to
have the agreement officially
accepted.
Should council vote down
the plea agreement, then the
U.S. District Attorney's Office
must decide whether to
indict the city on these or
more severe charges.
"My hope is we do not get
to that point, but we'll have
to wait and see," Green said.

BLAME from page 1A
Midnight Pass, between
Casey and Siesta keys. Pro-
dredgers say an open pass
would help flush out pollu-
tants down the Intracoastal
Waterway and out the Venice
jetties. Opponents don't want
the increased boat traffic
around their waterfront prop-
erties.
But county commissioners
have already committed to
opening the pass, and are well
into the process of seeking a
permit to complete the pro-
ject.
Ocean sands
Laird Wreford, coastal
resources manager I for
Sarasota County Department
of Natural Resources, said the
light-colored ocean waters in
the photographs extending
up into Venice inlets is likely
caused by deposition of
beach sand. That same basic
color is churned up in
motion. Wreford said the
man-made structures creat-
ing the inlet initiate higher
tidal velocity and pressure.
Sand is being carried and
deposited farther up into the
bays, he said.
"It looks like that could be
the case," Wreford said. "It's
fairly natural to have a long
shoal off shore that moves
back and forth. They're con-
stantly moving. Sand trades
between ebb and flood
shoals, creating its own equi-
librium."
Wreford said the county
may initiate some dredging
projects around Snake Island


(the small island just inside
the inlets) and up the intra-
coastal waters in the near
future.
Creek sediment
Not only is sand coming in
from the ocean, but sediment
is flowing down from rivers
that feed Dona and Roberts
bays.
Roger Rasbury, with DNR
water resources department,
heads the waterway mainte-
nance program.
The program handles
dredging projects that are
initiated by neighborhoods.
It's strictly a program related
to safe boating and naviga-
tion not environmental
issues.
"When you start to get an
increase in construction and
other human activity, or even
severe storms, that increases
the rate in which silt is gener-
ated downstream," Rasbury
said.
"Rivers bring soil down
with it and tend to open up
into bay where they start to
form sand bars. It's a natural
process that can be sped up
by human activity.
Sometimes it's not what peo-
ple want.
"Environmentally, it's not
detrimental. Every bad storm
will rearrange sand bars. After
last year's series of hurricanes,
all the fishing spots and sand
bars in Charlotte Harbor were
rearranged. You have to com-
pletely relearn the whole har-
bor. That's Mother Nature at
work."


Curry favor
More than a hundred
Curry Creek homeowners are
challenging Mother Nature.
They recently joined hands
and approached the depart-
ment to facilitate a dredging
process for the creek, which
feeds into Roberts Bay. It's
one of a handful in the works,
said Rasbury.
Curry Creek residents want
the county to dredge the
creek, currently less than a
foot deep in most areas, into a
30-foot-wide, 5-foot-deep
stream.
But they'll have to pay for
the dredging.
Once 67 percent of the
homeowners support the
effort through a petition
process, a feasibility study is
conducted, said Rasbury.
Following the feasibility
study, the waterway mainte-
nance program estimates
costs, and each resident's
share, and takes it to the
county board who holds a
public hearing.
If it's a go, the county cre-
ates a taxing district that
authorizes the department to,
begin the dredging process.


Water quality
As for the water quality
issue, bay systems tradition-
ally have more pollution
problems because of the con-
tribution of stormwater
runoff, said Kathy Meaux
from Sarasota County
Environmental Services.
Sarasota County is taking a
very proactive approach in
monitoring these systems,
she said.
"I believe that Mr. Segalla is
mistakenly associating the
difference in water color with
pollution," Meaux said.
"We test all the beaches,"
added Rob Bolesta, with the
Sarasota County Health
Department. "That's an
absolute false assumption. It's
just not happening. Pollution
is just not coming in from the
"Gulf side. Otherwise, we
would detect it through bac-
teria samplings."
The state health depart-
ment, under the Healthy
Beaches Program, samples 16
gulf beaches weekly from
Longboat to Manasota beach
to make sure the areas are

"Our biggest problem is
the intermittent red tide, and
that is pretty much gone right
now," Bolesta said.
Venice beaches that are
sampled are North Jetty,
Venice, Service Club Park,
Venice Fishing Pier, Brohard
and Caspersen.
Skeptical
Segalla, who brought the
photos to the county's atten-
tion, remains unconvinced.
"It's not sea foam or beach
sand," he claims. "They can


say what they want. Stop and
think about it. All the septic
and other stormwater sewage
draining into the intracoastal
waters, and into the rivers
that dump into the bays -
where does that go?"
Segalla still stands by his
original charge Midnight
Pass needs to be reopened
because it is keeping ocean
waters from adequately flush-
ing south behind Casey Key
and through the Venice jetty,
taking out pollution with it.
"This may rush that pro-.
ject a little bit more," he said.

aggrieved that the special
exception in question opens a
door that in the end will cre-
ate nightmares of traffic and
congestion and will surely
have an adverse effect on
housing prices on the rest of
Venice," Levine wrote in his
response.
As for the building owners'
response, their attorney
focused on how Levine did
not attend any of the
Architectural Review Board or
Venice Planning Commission
meetings at which the new
building was reviewed and
approved. No oral or written
complaints from him were on

other chances to challenge
the project, Roberts also
alleges he is not being physi-
cally or financially damaged
by this decision.
"Spite suits or appeals are
not to be tolerated," Roberts
wrote in his conclusion. "The
case law is clear that the
appellant (Levine) must artic-
ulate a legally recognizable
interest which will be affected
by the action of planning
commission. The appellant
has not met this burden."
Height caps
While they are related top-
ics, Levine's height appeal is
not connected to last week's
decision by the planning
commission not to support a
proposed height cap in a
small district along West


Venice Avenue or relinquish
control of height decisions to
city council.
On Friday, City Manager
Marty Black said city staff
remains undeterred and will
take both proposals to city
council for approval despite
planning commission voting
against them.
The height overlay district
would not allow any building
to exceed 35 feet total west of
Armada Road basically, the
last couple of blocks along
West Venice Avenue before
the beach.
Expect there to be more
proposed height overlay dis-
tricts throughout the city,
according to the city manag-
er. The West. Venice Avenue
district was simply the first
and made the most sense


from a historical perspective
and based on community
support.
More controversial height
restrictive districts includ-
ing downtown area could
eventually come up for a vote,
Black said.
"This is the first time we're
doing this as a community, so
we wanted to pick one with
resident support and had a
good planning basis for sup-
port," Black said. "This all ties
into what we're going to set
for the future of Venice. ...
Simply putting this ordinance
in place doesn't mean there
will never be any other
change. It just raises the bar."

Midnight Pass restoration on tedious track


BjJACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


J, Nobody thought Sarasota
County would find an easy
road to travel when the deci-
s4pn was made last summer
toQ apply for federal and state
permits to restore Midnight
eass, and after eight months
f ere are ominous signs the
r,ute may also be very long.
As matters currently stand,
consultant Karyn Erickson
gill respond this month to
tlze first of three anticipated
question-and-answer rounds
4ith the state environmental
officials who help determine
whether dredging permits are
issued.
-,The picture is less clear
with the Army Corps, which
fas yet to decide whether it
will require an environmental
impact assessment or a, full-
blown environmental impact
statement as part of the appli-
cation process. A statement
could take six additional
months.
|"We estimated ihe process
luld take between 18 and
months," said Roger
asbury, a county waterways
managerr who, has been
signed to work with
ickson.
S"So far, we have received
6 notice from' the Army
|Qrps. The story is that a
tort clock is not ticking."


Round 1
Erickson, an environmen-
tal engineer, moved her
offices from Gainesville to
Sarasota in anticipation of a
protracted process. On .Nov.
24, she mailed off application
copies to the Florida
Department of Environ-
mental Protection and Army
Corps.
Headquarters administra-
tors will steer the application
and Erickson's periodic
responses to a myriad of tech-
nical questions through lower
level review agencies, all of
which may continue to ask
more questions until they are
either satisfied or recom-
mend rejection.
"The state must make its
responses and start another
cycle within 30 days,"Rasbury
said, "or the application is
considered OK. The Army
Corps has 30 days to respond,
but can request a 30-day
extension. There are some
questions the county can't
respond to yet."'


For example, the state has
asked for early designs.
"We can respond to that
request at a later date,"
Rasbury said, "when we're
ready to move the ball for-
ward."
Stable, but not hardened
The permit application
drafted. last autumn by
Erickson calls for the removal
of 360,000 cubic yards of sand
from the former the former
pass channel, ,an adjacent
sand trap and the tidal chan-
nel that connect with, the
Intracoastal Waterway.
She has estimated that
330,000 cubic yards would be
suitable for nearby beaches
that are eroded. The applica-
tion also includes a plan to
dredge a secondary channel'
from the small lagoon near
Turtle Beach and connect
with the Midnight Pass.
Erickson has been down
this difficult road before..In
2002, she consulted with New
Hanover County, N.C.,, to

relocate and restore unstable
Mason Inlet without the use
of seawalls, rocks or other
hardened structures, and
provide a long-term manage-
ment plan to keep it open.
The county wants a
Midnight Pass restoration
project that will remain stable
without hardening, and also
provide replacement sand for
nearby Siesta Key and Casey
Key beaches when the chan-
nel is periodically dredged for
maintenance purposes over
the next 30 years.
Tourists taxed
Midnight Pass historically
separated Siesta Key from
Casey Key, but it became
unstable in the 1970s and was
closed with the county c6m-
mission's permission after it
migrated' northward and
threatened to undermine two
expensive beachfront homes.
In 1988, the county submit-
ted a Midnight Pass restora-
tion proposal that was denied
by state authorities in 1991. An


administrative appeal failed.
The closure has been an unre-
solved political problem that
has challenged advocacy
groups and commissioners.
Erickson initially estimated
it would cost $15 million to
dredge open Midnight Pass
and maintain it for 30 years.
She later increased the figure
to more than $22 million by
adding an inflation factor and
increasing the number of peri-
odic maintenance dredging
projects from six to eight.
The county's permit appli-
cation describes a direct cut
from the Gulf of Mexico to the
Gulf Intracoastal Waterway. It
would affect 3.5 acres of man-
groves and 12.9 acres of sea
grass beds, so a mitigation
plan would have to be
approved that addresses the
environmental impacts.
No long-term financing
plan has been devised, but it
appears that most of the $22
million would probably come
from the county's tourist
development tax.


Red tide

alert: low

impacts

STAFF REPORT
The National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration
is predicting low impacts this
week in the Englewood area
from red tide.
NOAAs latest report states:
'"A harmful algal bloom has
been identified from south-
ern Pinellas to Sarasota coun-
ties. Impacts in Sarasota
County are expected to be
very low."
This service marks NOAA's
first efforts at red tide fore-
casting. At this point, fore-
casting is still an inexact sci-
ence. Predictions are difficult
because wind and water cur-
rents vary on an hourly basis,
and there is not yet a compre-
hensive system for constant
monitoring of in-water condi-
tions.
Use this information as a
rough guide only.

Red tide's harmful impacts can finally be measured


A bit of the toxin the size of a grain of sand is
enough to bring on the sneezing, wheezing and
irritation associated with the organism. But for
some people, that's a good thing.


BY KITTY BLANCO
SPECIALTOTHESUN

Scientists say they can now
measure the effects of red tide
toxins that drive people from
the beaches and kill wildlife
in the waters of coastal
Florida.
The results of the study of
the human health effects of
Florida red tide confirm
decades of anecdotal stories
about red tide. Scientists said
this week they have found
that red tide causes a variety
of symptoms based on the
levels of toxin released by the
red tide organism and the size
of the particles released.
"Now we have numbers.
We know it is more than a


whiff, a sniff and a sneeze,"
Dr. Daniel Baden, director of
the Center for Marine Science
at the University of North
Carolina-Wilmington, told a
seminar on Monday at Mote
Marine Laboratory in
Sarasota.
Mote Marine Lab is the
field site for the overall
human health study funded
by the National Institute of
Environmental Health
Sciences, Florida Department
of Health and the U.S.
Centers for Disease Control.
Red tide is formed from
naturally occurring organ-
isms that release toxins while
going through the various
stages of life cycle, Baden
said. As many as 14 toxins and


more than five species have
been identified through this
study.
Baden said, "Florida has
been 'blessed' with having all
of the identified toxins. It
makes for a very important
study site."
The toxins released by red
tide can make people ill. But
the toxins also kill fish, which
bring the toxin in through
their gills; manatees, which
breathe in the toxin and die of
pulmonary collapse; birds,
which both breathe in toxins
and eat contaminated fish;
and dogs, which eat large
amounts of contaminated
fish.
The bad
In the study, red tide has
been revealed to be extremely
potent, up to 10,000 times
more toxic than cyanide.
Symptoms such as tightness
of the chest, inflammation of
the lungs, coughing, runny

nose and eye irritation occur
at concentrations too low to
measure.
"If you took a bit of breve-
toxin the size of a grain of
sand, ground it up and dis-


persed it in a cubic meter of
air, that is how much toxin is
needed to cause symptoms. It
is very toxic," Baden said. .
Red tide toxin becomes
airborne atomized -
when it hits the shore. The
size of the particles released
determines the type of symp-
toms, the study showed,
while the concentration of
the toxin determines the
severity of the symptoms.
Small particles cause
coughing, eye irritation and
runny nose. Smaller particles
cause wheezing and short-
ness of breath. Extremely
small particles cause dimin-
ished air flow and can lead to
pulmonary collapse.
The good
But there is an upside.
Because the toxins in red
tide cause the body to release
mucus, drugs have been
developed from the toxin to
help people with diseases


that are characterized b
thick mucus clogging the aif-'
ways, such as cystic fibrosis.
One of the drugs, Brevenal,
is currently in the pateiift
process for use in cystic fibroP-
sis and similar lung disease,
Brevenal works at one-miFl'

In addition, this study ha'"

Upland protection will affect development


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


. Conservation officials want
some local control over what
happens to thousands of
undeveloped acres before
land developers roll in their
bulldozers, but they will only
haveia say if rules are adopted
that give teeth to the "feel
good" policies in Sarasota
County's comprehensive plan.
For instance, the plan
known as Apoxsee states a
county goal is: "To preserve
significant areas and repre-
sentative samples adequate to
maintain the functions and
values of native habitat."
SBut without ordinances
and rules to achieve the goal,
the statement is meaningless.
"The only rules that cur-
rently apply are the Tree
Protection Ordinance and the
Myakka River... Protection
Plan," saidAmy Meese, county
resource protection manager.


"There is no prohibition on
clearing. There are Apoxsee
policies, but no standards."
More paper
Florida law requires coun-
ties and cities to adopt com-
prehensive plans that provide
a framework for future growth.
Many of the documents are
laced with policy language
that describes a community's
good intentions and is intend-
ed to make the residents feel
good.
The problem is that while
these documents address
quality of life issues that few
residents would argue with,
they largely rest on ordinances
and rules adopted by locally
elected officials to implement
them. Without those, a plan is
just more paper on a bureau-
crat's back shelf.
Some county commission-
ers want native upland habitat
protected so developers have
to build homes and other pro-


jects around open spaces. .
debate about exactly what
should be protected has inter-
mittently droned on for sever-
al years without resolution.
Ban coming back
County officials will soon
attempt to put a small piece of
the puzzle in place when they
recommend the removal of a
Tree Protection Ordinance
that allows landowners to
bulldoze large parcels before
selling them off to developers.


In 1998,1 the commission
slapped a two-year ban on the
practice. But four years later,
when it voted to place a six-
year ban on the practice, last-
minute language was inserted
that effectively wiped out all
protection for trees on agricul-
tural tracts.
"The staff will propose to
take that language out of the
ordinance and re-establish the
two-year prohibition on sales
of cleared agricultural lands,"
Meese said.

Venice helps Sarasota
County defeat Manatee
County in the battle for
track supremacy.
BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

They call it the Pride Classic
because the top track and field ath-
letes from rival counties put it on
the line to see who's best.
Manatee County had Lakewood
Ranch High leading the way, but
Sarasota County with schools
like Riverview, Sarasota, North Port
and Venice was just too deep.
Sarasota County was able to
claim track' supremacy over its
northern neighbor in Friday night's
meet held at Lakewood Ranch.
In combined points, Lakewood
Ranch was tops with 272, but then
came the Sarasota County heavy
hitters Riverview with 256,
Sarasota with 138, North Port with
135 and Venice with 120.
Athletes qualified for the Pride
Classic by finishing well in their
respective county meets.
The lone VHS& winner in the
Pride Meet was the Lady Indians 4
by 800 relay team. Venice won its
latest duel with Riverview, which
didn't have standout Channing
Cookerly for a leg. Riverview fin-
ished back in third behind Sarasota.
Running the 4 by 800 in a win-
ning 10 minutes, 40 seconds were
Stephanie Korszen, Genna Jones,
Chelsea Rose and Katie Adams.
Korszen and Rose each had sec-
onds in individual, events -
Stephanie in the 3200 (12:32.65)
and Chelsea in the 1600 (5:40).
Samantha Seeley recorded
another second for Venice, as she
threw the discus 101 feet, six inches.
Vickie Mitchell, who was a busy
girl participating in five events dur-
ing the night, turned in a third-
placed performance in the 100
meters. She was clocked in 12.84.

Indians lose


close game


to Pendleton

BY DON HUTCHINS
CORRESPONDENT

Despite a strong effort behind the
plate Friday night, the Venice High
Indians walked away empty handed,
losing to the visiting Pendleton
Panthers, 3-2.
Early on, the Venice HighIndians
showed no signs of weakness in this
exciting match-up.
After completing a, 1-2-3 inning in
the top of the first, the Indians came to
the plate swinging. Jason Staszewski
led off the bottom of the first with a
home rti to left field.
Throughout three complete
innings of play, Venice dominated the
Panthers. However, as in prior games,
the Indians' would have one bad
inning that would deflate the momen-
tum created early on.
After giving up
only one hit
through three 'We've got to

field. c
In the top of Morawski
the seventh, the
Panthers would
score their final and winning run.
As Venice High fans have seen all
season, this team has a great offense.
However, struggles in the field have
usually cost the Indians wins.
The Indians defense compiled four
errors through seven innings.
Fundamental throwing errors such as
checking the base runners and rou-
tine throws to bases have allowed the
opposing team to get utinners into
storing position.
Even though the Indians are below
.500, Venice High fans would agree
that this team is better than its record
indicates.
Mark Morawski, the manager for
the Panthers, stated after the game,
"The Indians are an excellent ball club.
Coach Faulkner is a quality guy who
truly cares about his team, which ulti-
mately creates a quality program."
And even with this loss, Venice High
fans walk away with their heads high
feeling these same sentiments.

THE ZONE


Sometimes you just need
to get away. A short drive to
Sarasdta can really improve
your game.
This week, we're going to
explore the vexing concept of
lofts and lies. When most
players get started playing
golf, they do not want to incur
the expense of investing in
the game. They will usually
buy the cheapest set they can
right off the rack. No one
wants to spend upwards of
$1,000 to be properly outfit-

ted if they don't know whe-
ther they will be playing in a
year, which is understand-
able.
It is, however, the wrong
way to approach the game.
You can, of course, buy the
cheapest equipment you can
find and pray for the best.
Even if you have marginal
equipment you can still be fit-
ted like a pro. And you should
be. Going to a golf shop isn't
the answer most times. They
specialize in selling clubs.
This is not to say that there
aren't golf shops that have
knowledgeable salespeople.
Most of the time they just
don't have the equipment to
properly fit your game.
This is where the driving
comes in. There are two
shops in Sarasota that can
help you out. Now there may
be more, but these are the two
I use most often. Most


Unique Golf Services, or
MUGS is located in south
Sarasota at the comer of Clark
Road and Sunrise Boulevard.
And Steve's Custom Golf is at
the intersection of Clark and
Mcintosh. Both are qualified
to check your lofts and lies
and know what they're doing.
Stop in and see David or
Allison at MUGS or Steve at
Steve's and the odds are they
can help you to improve your
game.
Do you know the proper
loft and lie for you? Find out.
Just like with the grips from
last week, go see a profession-
al clubfitter and get your
game right. I'm sure if you
have ever bought clubs from
a golf store you thought that
was all there was to it. Go out
there and rip it. Wrong. You
are unique. What works for a
buddy might not work for
you.


All golf clubs are different.
Loft is the amount of angle on
your clubface at address. It is
what makes a 7 iron fly farther
than an 8 iron. Less loft, more
distance.
Lie is a completely differ-
ent animal. What works for
one player may not translate
to you. Some golfers believe
that short players have flat
lies while tall players have
upright lies. Not true. I, for
example, am not tall, but my
proper lie is two degrees
upright, because my arms are
longer than my legs. Freaky
huh? The point is you need
to be fitted for your clubs by
someone who knows how.
The point is that you can
buy two identical sets of clubs
and they may or may not
actually be exactly the same.
Take the time to find out and
get your game on track. See
ya.

SCHOOL BOARD NOTES


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County School
Board recognized an employ-
ee of the year, postponed
action on the latest North
Port school and approved a
host of new contracts at
Tuesday's meeting.
Here's a recap:

Recognition
Beth Biegel, office manag-
er with the Human Resources
Department, .was named the
School-Related Employee of
the Year. She led and planned
the physical move of the
department, which went off
without a hitch in only two
days, said Scott Lempe,
human resources director.
Biegel was chosen from 38
nominees.
Among the nominees were
the following South County
school employees: Kimberly
Powell, receptionist at
Cranberry Elementary; Doug
Pelowski, head custodian at
Englewood Elementary;
Sandy Lanehart, head custo-
dian at Garden Elementary;
Curtis Walden, custodian at
Glenallen Elementary; Susan
Munnell, receptionist at
Heron Creek Middle; Judith
Dalton, recently retired secre-
tary at' Laurel Nokomis;
Denise Valentine, ESE secre-
tary at Pine View; Brenda
Kelly, principal's secretary at
Taylor Ranch Elementary;
Bonnie Sharp, principal's sec-
retary at Venice Elementary;
John "Doc" Harris, grounds-
man at Venice High; and
Janice Foster, instructional
aide at Venice Middle.

Postponed
The Sarasota County
School Board postponed until
its next meeting approval of a
new facilities plan for the sec-
ond middle school in North
Port. The revised plan, which
adds an additional 20 class-


rooms to the proposed school
that will be built on
Lamarque Avenue on the
south side of Interstate 75
between Sumter and Toledo
Blad, updates the 1999 list to
accommodate the class-size
reduction amendment and
changes in instructional pro-
gramming. The second mid-
dle school is scheduled to
open for the 2006-07 school
year.
It's only the second time
the district has had to update
a facilities list due to the class-
size amendment. The first
facilities update was
approved in February for the
fourth North Port elementary
school. That revision is
expected to increase con-
struction costs by a minimum
of 4 percent, roughly
$640,000.

Contracts
The following contracts
were approved by the school
board:
Re-award to Tree House,
Inc. and Media Recovery, Inc.
for printer cartridges and rib-
bons. A portion of the bid was
originally awarded to Upstate
Computers Corp. but its bid
was terminated due to poor
performance, according to
the district.
Trane Parts Center and
Tropic Supply Inc. to provide
heating, air conditioning,
refrigeration" and ventilation
materials not to exceed
$500,000.
Home Depot to provide
building supplies not to
exceed $200,000.
Superior Concrete
Construction as primary ven-
dor and Gordon J. Hornikel
Concrete Inc. as secondary
vendor for a contract not to
-exceed $450,000.
Southeastern Telecom-
munications Inc. to provide
telephone system mainte-
nance and equipment for a
two-year contract not to

Early voting in Venice
Venice City Council must
decide how it will comply
with early-voting laws this
Tuesday.
In a report from City
Clerk Lori Stelzer, the local
elections supervisor, she
states that Florida law
requires a municipality pro-
vide early voting 15 days
prior to an election, which
includes a total of eight
weekend hours.
Stelzer's options listed for
compliance include:
Hold early voting at the


Robert L. Anderson
Administration Center at a
charge of eight overtime
hours for Sarasota County
elections staff to cover week-
end hours.
Have the early voting
within city limits at city hall.
However, this would require
training of city staff on how
to operate the voting
machines and assisting vot-
'ers during. regular office
hours and weekends. A
secure location throughout
the 15-day period also would
have to be maintained.
Adopt new ordinances in
order to opt out of early vot-
ing or change the dates.
Stelzer states that several
other municipalities have
passed similar ordinances.


In the report to council,;I
Stelzer recommends having
early voting at the Robert L,-
Anderson Administrationb
Center. ,

County officials still considering red-light cameras


Public works staff determines red-light cameras
would cost up to $80,000 each, and revenue from
fines would more than cover the expense.


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS
When Sarasota County pre-
viously experimented with an
automated camera to deter-
mine if red-light runners
posed a safety threat, it count-
ed more than 70 infractions
every day from cars traveling
in just one direction through a
busy intersection. Yet it took
no action.
"Our research has indicated
that, should automated red-
light running enforcement be
implemented, this number
would decrease by approxi-
mately 50 percent," Public
Works General Manager Jim
Harriott wrote in a March 5
report to the county commis-
sion.
A decision to install red-
light cameras that capture vio-
lations on film could result in
tickets for vehicle owners, but
the issue isn't that simple. The
Florida Legislature has been
reluctant to authorize their
use on state roads, so the
county might have to go it
alone on local roads.
Furthermore, a communi-
ty's ability to issue traffic cita-
tions and raise local revenue
through fines is regulated by
state law, so the county would
have to weave its way through
legal hoops if it is seriously
determined to crack down on
red light runners.
No surprise
In late 1999, an automated
camera was mounted at the
southwest corner of 17th
Street and Lockwood Ridge
Road in Sarasota. It captured
photographic proof when
eastbound cars entered the
intersection after the light had
turned red, and thus broke the
law.
The camera continued to
take pictures over a Gve-day
period from Dec. 25 through
29, and a county consultant
reported that the average
number of red light runners -
traveling only from west to
east-was 73.2 per day. At the
time, it was not considered a
surprise.
Now, after five years, the
county has gathered informa-
tion to determine how much a
network of automated cam-
eras would cost to install and
operate, and whether the rev-
enue generated from tickets
would offset the expense of
operating such a program.
In his report, Harriott sug-
gested the cameras could be
purchased and installed for
between $50,000 and $80,000
apiece, and it would cost
about $2,000 a month to
process film collected from
each of them. Firms that spe-
cialize in such programs could
rent and operate the cameras.
"Anticipated revenues
would exceed the costs," he
stated. "However, it should be
pointed out that the violator is
not identified. The fine
becomes the only disincentive
for running the red light, and
therefore needs to be appro-
priately heavy."
Popular support
Some state lawmakers who
believe communities might
use the.cameras to raise exces-
sive revenue have opposed
their use. Others have claimed
they could be an invasion of
privacy if local law enforce-
ment officials use them for
other than traffic-related pur-
poses.
On Jan. 20, the Pelican Press
reported that State Rep. Nancy
Detert, R.-Venice, would sup-
port the installation of red-
light cameras, but only if ticket
revenues that exceed operat-
ing costs were donated to a
state-sponsored children's
health insurance program.
"I've always felt that the
push for these cameras was an
effort by local governments to
raise more money, and with-


out the profit incentive they
wouldn't be asking for legisla-
tion," she said. "If they'd give
the money to Florida KidCare,
I'd support them."

Staub initiated the latest coun-
ty discussion about automat-
ed red-light traffic cameras

Showdown?
In anticipation of a possible
legal showdown with the state,
County Attorney Steve
DeMarsh was asked to deter-
mine what the consequences


could be so the county com-
mission could make a deci-
sion while the Florida
Legislature is in session. The
commission has not yet
received his report.
Red-light cameras are used
for traffic enforcement in 15
states, Washington, D.C., and
Canada. Tickets are mailed to


the owners of vehicles cap-
tured on film. Florida
motorists are currently subject
to $115.50 tickets for such vio-
lations, but the legislature is
considering an increase.

Remembering

the Polish pope


As if it were just yesterday,
I remember phoning my
grandmother and saying,
"Baka, we have a Polish
pope." She wept and said, "I
never thought I would live
long enough to see a Polish
pope."
"God has truly blessed all
Polish people today," she
added.
I was reminded of that
conversation as I sat glued to
my television keeping vigil
with the rest of the world.
Pope John Paul II died on
the eve of my grandmother's
birthday. She would have
been 112.
I am grateful for the timing
as whenever I think of one of
them, I will think of the other.
At dinner recently Janet
Weiss recalled meeting the
pope when she traveled to
Rome with Bishop John
Nevins and a group from
Epiphany Cathedral several
years ago.,
The pope gave Janet a
rosary and said, "Have a nice
holiday." She remembers he
spoke perfect English. That
rosary and a photo she has
with the pope are even more
meaningful to her now.

One of the greatest advo-

my life," McLeod said. "I got

Because of that I was fired.",
hat unfavorable situation
could have been the luckiest
thing to ever happen to him
because it would lead him to
a career in real estate.
"I decided to become a
painter," McLeod said.


"Truthfully, I knew nothing
about painting. I went into
this guy's office and asked
him if he had anything that I
could paint and he said, 'You
don't want to be a painter,
come work for me.'
The office McLeod walked
into was Scott Realty. It was a
huge break because two
years later McLeod Realty
was established. At first,
McLeod was an appraiser.
Then he advanced to selling
property and after a while
switched to owning them.
"You cannot be a realtor
without being an appraiser,"
he said. "If you're not an
appraiser you don't know
value. Unless you know value
you're walking in the dark."
McLeod even founded a
lending institution to help
people afford homes in New
York It was sanctioned under
the federal government pro-
gram EAGLE.
McLeod is very grateful for
the break he was given that
day in the office and he does-
n't forget the opportunities
working in real estate brought
to him.
"It has been good to me
and I have been good to it," he
said.


Keith Backhaus, president of the Venice Lions Club, came to
support the new formation of the Laurel Lions club.


In order to travel, McLeod
also established CAM 1 Travel.
It was mostly for that fact and
not for financial gain that
McLeod started the company.
It gave him the opportunity to
travel all over the world.

ter who needed an operation

have the money to payfor it.
SMcLeod knew of a doctor and
called him. Before he knew it
the little girl's surgery was
done.
"That lady never let me
forget about it," McLeod said.


According to The Inter-
national Association of Lions
Clubs Web site it began as the
dream of Chicago business-
man Melvin Jones. He be-
lieved that local business
clubs should expand their
horizons from purely profes-
sional concerns to the bener-
ment of their communities

McLeod first joined the
Lions in 1969 in New York
because he thought it was the
greatest organization in the
world. McLeod became a dis-
trict governor, which is the
highest rank in Lions, for the
Brooklyn and Queens Bur-
roughs in NewYork City.
"We are all God's children
and we are here to help each
other," McLeod said."Some of
us are more fortunate than
others and therefore should."
The Lions Club is-the big-'
gest major service organiza-
tion in the world and it offers
services beyond the reach of
the blind and deaf. If some-
body needs help painting a
house, 'sending a child to
college or employment, the
Lions Club can help.
'A story McLeod is very
proud of is, when he first
became governor. A lady
called him to congratulate
him. McLeod thanked her


"I felt very proud about that
because here I am making a
difference in a little girl's life
and that is what Lion-ism is
all about."
Being involved with a
Lions Club means helping
people that need help. Mc-
Leod knows he can be an
inspiration to other people
so that all people in need are
served.
"I am aware that the cre-
ator has given us tremendous
abiity to do things. It is not
money that makes us happy,
I do not think. What we are
here to do is help each other."
McLeod said he wants to
have this club in Laurel be-
cause in Florida there are not
a lot of black clubs or blacks
participating in the Lions.
"They say 'That's not for
us.' It just so happens that I
am a past district governor,"
he said. "I went to a Lions
Club meeting in Capetown,
South Africa in 1974, which
was not a good place for
a black man to be. When I say
the Lions are international, I
really mean it."'


and the world at large. Jones'
group, the Business Circle of
Chicago, agreed. After con-
tacting similar groups around
the United States, an organi-
zational meeting was held
on June 7, 1917 in Chicago.
The new group took the
name of ,one of the in-vited
groups, the ."Association of
Lions Clubs," and a national
convention was held in
Dallas, in October of that
year.
In 1925, Helen Keller ad-
, dressed the Lions Inter-
national convention in Cedar
Point, Ohio. She challenged
Lions to-become "knights of
the blind in the crusade
against darkness." From this
time, Liois Clubs have been
actively involved in service to
the blind and visually im-
paired,
"Since then the Lions have
changed," McLeod said.
In addition to sight pro-
grams, Lions Clubs Inter-
national is committed to pro-
viding services for youth.

SCBB thanks its many do-
nors who selflessly give to
improve the quality of life for
others. Donating blood is an
inexpensive and effortless
way to give back to the com-
munity. Donating blood
doesn't cost the donor any-
thing and one donation can
help save up to three lives.
A person has an 85%
chance of someday needing a
blood transfusion. Since there
is no artificial substitute for
human blood, the Blood
Bank relies on the generosity
of blood donors to help re-
plenish the blood supply
available to three local hospi-
tals. An average of 80 units of
blood is needed on a daily ba-
sis. A blood donation is sepa-


Papilloma.Virus (HPV) and
HIV/AIDS. The health depart-
ment provides people of all
ages with information and
education on STDs, empow-
ering them to recognize signs
and symptoms, take personal
responsibility to reduce risk
and prevent the spread of
STDs and seek treatment
when needed. Testing and
treatment are available at
each of the three health
department clinic locations
in Sarasota (Ringling
Boulevard site only), Venice
and North Port.
Health department offi-
cials say that sexually trans-
mitted infections cross both
geographic and socio-eco-
nomic boundaries and if
untreated can contribute to
long-term health problems.

can help cancer patients, pe-
ople undergoing surgery, pre-

Giving blood is a simple pro-
cess that takes about thirty
. minutes. People may donate
if they are at least 17 years old,
weigh at least 110 pounds,
and are in reasonably good
health.
However, some people
may be excluded temporarily
or permanently due to cer-
tain travel or health risks.

These infections, which may
be bacterial or viral in nature,
may go undiagnosed and
untreated because some peo-,
ple may not have obvious
signs or symptoms. However,
untreated STDs can cause
irreversible neurological
damage and damage to the
reproductive organs which
can result in infertility.
Physical exams along with
certain lab tests can reveal
STD and HIV infections. Early
detection and treatment of
STDs reduces the risk of
pelvic inflammatory disease
which causes permanent
damage to the fallopian tubes
and prevents a woman from
ever having children. In addi-
tion, some strains of HPV are
closely linked to cervical can-
cer.


Questions about hospice care will be answered by Dr.
Kevin Crimmins of Shepherd's Watch, a ministry sponsored
by Hospice of Southwest Florida, at a continental breakfast
which will be held at Venice Church of the Nazarene on
Monday, April 11th at 10 AM. Dr. Crimmins will be
speaking at the Joy Group, a monthly activity of the
church's ministry to seniors, which welcomes all members'
of the community to it's series of informative and
enjoyable programs. Suggested offering for the breakfast
is $2.50. Door prizes from area restaurants and businesses
will be distributed,


Public health officials
encourage everyone to
remember the ABCs of STD
prevention:
* Avoid behaviors that may
increase the risk for infection.
* Become informed about
sexually transmitted infec-
tions including signs, symp-
toms, risks and available
treatments and counseling
options.
* Care about yourself and oth-
ers through STD prevention,
screening and treatment.

WORDS WORTH


By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist -
Q. I believe my husband has
hearing loss but every time I
try to-discuss it withhim, he
?says Jhe is: fine and ; doesn't
'need any help. Everyone who
knows him knows he has
trouble but he becomes
angry with me when I tell
him he needs help. Is there
anything a spouse (or
significant other) can do to
encourage the seeking of
hearing solutions?
A. I once taught a course in
which I had my students wear
earplugs for a full day. They
were asked to log every
emotion they went through and
report to the class the following
week. Students said they felt
inadequate and incompetent.
With the absence of ordinary
sounds, there was .a feeling of
disorientation. By the end of he
day, most students confessed
they were unnerved and
depressed. People who develop
hearing loss from an explosion,
accident or other trauma are
more inclined to' deal with it
quickly because the hearing
loss is readily apparent. Those
who lose their hearing
gradually over time tend to
blame others for "mumbling
their words" or for speaking
too softly. Communication is a
dynamic process between
people. It is vitally important
that the significant other be
actively involved in helping the
person with hearing loss
through the rehabilitation
process. Adjusting to corrective
amplification is not easy.
Discouragement can set in and
a partner who does not
understand or appreciate what
the person with hearing loss is
going through can fuel this
frustration. The Audiologists at
Woodmere Hearing and
Balance Centers, Inc. have an
assessment questionnaire,
which can measure your
husband's readiness for help.
Call us at 492-4327 to receive
your assessment and additional
information about hearing loss.
This is a good first step to take
on the road to getting your
husband the hearing help he
needs.

Some ideas on lowering health care costs


VIRGINIA DEUPREE
GUEST COLUMNIST

We oldsters have some
very strong opinions but
sometimes we have to change
them.
Many of us say we are
never going to enter a senior
living facility, then bingo we
land in one. I thought I would
never use a walker but now I
depend on one. One of my
friends said no one was ever
going to give her a shower but
then difficulties, arose and she
had to give in. Now she looks
forward to the pampering.
Another lady assured no one
would ever touch her toenails
but now she is delighted to
have a podiatrist take care of
them. Of course the most
strong help opinion is about
driving. Most oldsters feel
they are perfectly capable of
driving and resent anyone
suggesting otherwise. ,


Another subject which
bothers me is the blatant use
of Medicare by elderly people.
I still squirm when I have to
have use Medicare funds.
Some friends have attempted
to reassure me by saying I
deserve it because I put
money into it. Baloney! I will
probably use hundreds of
Times more than I put into it.
My care is being paid for by
our young people. My friend
Bob Friar, a professor at Ferris
State University in Michigan,
says that approximately half
of the lifetime health care
expenses for most people
occurs in the last six months
of their lives. The Eskimoes
supposedly put their elderly
on ice floes and let them drift
out to sea. I often tell my chil-
dren they should do that with
me but they just smile and
say there are no ice floes in
Florida.
A lighter side of aging is
reflected by a late friend of
mine, Bill Hall, who captured
the conversations around the
pool at the Bird Bay club-
house in this poem.
'The Advil Chorus'
You'll hear of tendonitis in the
hand
And get a lecture on a thyroid
gland


And then a carpal tunnel in
the wrist
Will top a story about a
benign cyst
Someone will tell of their
appendicitis
Or necks and elbows with
arthritis
There'll be a discourse on a
wounded knee
And a detailed talk on bypass
surgery
You'll get a sordid tale of hip
replacement
From a gal who broke hers in-
the basement
There'll be shouts of joy for
radiation
And whispered hushed up
talks of constipation
One chap talks of ankles
which are swollen
Another has lost a foot or two
of colon
Deafness is another poolside
theme
Or floaters in the eye or sun-
shine creme,,
And of course some ladies
who are with beauty gifted
Have other things besides

"KEITH BACKIHAUS
GUEST COLUMNIST

What could we do to
reduce our cost without
reducing our health care?
I see some very obvious
places we can find additional
money to finance our health
care system. Here our my
suggestions:


Since we probably cannot,
ban medicine advertise-
ments, we should make them
a non-deductible business
expense. I see no reason why
we the taxpayers should
assume this cost. I am tired of
Viagra adds at dinnertime.
Recently, I was in my dentist's
office and one of the ceiling
tiles had been replaced by an
ad for a tooth-whitening
product. Here I am forced
during my entire procedure
to look at this advertisement.
I paid for the procedure and
the dentist received money
from the company placing
the ad. Advertising for health
care has gotten totally out of
hand. The next thing will be
ads for Preparation H on the


toilet tissue!
Give all health insurance,
health providers, etc. nine
months to agree on one set of
paperwork, codes and proce-
dures. This would reduce the
costs of our health care sys-
tem dramatically. Just think of
your own frustration and
confusion if you have had to
deal with all the paperwork
coming from various health
care providers during and
after a major illness or injury.
Why, some goes on for years!
Some would argue that nine
months is too short. It only
takes nine months for a baby.
' This is just paperwork. If no
agreement is reached, then

Take YourVitamins


Dear Savvy Senior, Lately I've
been feeling a little forgetful
and noticing some funny tin-
gling in my hands and feet. I
thought it's just because I'm get-
ting old I'm 68 but a friend
was telling me that I might be
missing some vitamins and min-
erals in my diet and suggested I
start taking vitamins. Is she
right, and if so, what kind
should I take? She also told me
that some vitamins have to be
taken with food and others
without. Can you tell me about
this? -Tingling Tern,

Dear Tingling, Your friend
could be right. Some of the
problems people often
attribute to getting older, like
memory lapses, joint pain,
fatigue and tingling in the
hands and feet, can often be
helped, or even prevented, if
you make some healthy
adjustments to accommo-
date the nutritional needs
of your changing body.
A healthy diet and a daily
multivitamin can go a long
way towards meeting your
daily vitamin and mineral
needs. But, in some cases,
multivitamins don't contain
enough of a certain vitamin
or mineral to meet the daily
requirement, so a supple-
ment is needed. Here's a
rundown of some of the vita-
mins and minerals you need
to know about. Also, before
you start taking new vita-
mins, be sure to talk to your
doctor. Some vitamin sup-
plements can interfere with
prescription medications,
while some popular medica-
tions can rob you of\it,...
minerals and vitamins.
Vitamin B-12- By age 50,
our bodies produce less
hydrochloric acid, which is
needed to digest food and
properly absorb key nutri-
ents, causing B-12 deficiency,
which could lead to anemia
and damage to the nervous
system. In most cases, a mul-
tivitamin can take care of
this, but you can also beef up
your intake by eating meat.
Vitamin E: It has been esti-
mated that 68 percent of
men and 71 percent of
women do not get enough
vitamin E daily. Vitamin E is
an antioxidant that helps
protect us from heart dis-
ease, cancer and cataracts.


Vegetable oils, nuts, and
green leafy vegetables are
the main dietary sources for
vitamin E. Supplement your
diet with between 200 400
IUs (international units) per
day in addition
to your multivitamin.
Calcium and Vitamin D:
The single best dietary com-
bination to prevent osteo-
porosis or brittle bones, is a
calcium supplement that
contains vitamin D. The daily
recommended amount is
1,200 milligrams of calcium
and 400 IUs of vitamin D.
This supplement should be
taken in addition to your
daily multivitamin when
you eat, so your body can
properly absorb it.
Fish Oil: If you had to take
cod liver oil as a child, your
mother knew what she was
doing. Omega-3 fatty acids
help prevent heart disease, as
well as memory loss, depres-
sion, help with digestion
woes, inhibit cancerous
tumors, ease pain and
inflammation, and help pre-
vent Alzheimer's disease.
Eating fish helps too, but
you'll also need a supple-
ment containing 1,000
milligrams.
Selenium: Selenium helps
protect healthy cells against
heart disease,
arthritis, and various types of
cancer, including prostate
cancer. Make sure your
multivitamin contains 200
micrograms.

Lutein: Best sources are
green vegetables collard
greens, spinach and kale -
and egg yokes. This nutrient
protects eyes from the effects
of ultraviolet rays, which can
lead to cataracts and macular
degeneration. Look for 250
micrograms in your multivit-
amin.
Magnesium: Required for
more than 300 bodily func-
tions, this mineral works with
calcium to support bone
strength. Magnesium is
found in nuts, legumes, rice
bran, whbolegrains, pumpkin ,
seeds and some antacid
tablets. Women need 320
milligrams daily and men
420 milligrams. In most
cases, your multivitamin can
take care of your magnesium
needs.
Savvy Tip: Seniors do not
need extra iron in their diets.
Iron is associated
with a higher risk of heart
disease. Make sure your daily
multivitamin is iron-free.

BACKHAUS from page 6A


Medicare paperwork, codes,
and procedures go into effect
for all.
Assuming that all health
care providers reach agree-
ment in nine months then
Medicare would also adopt
that standard. It would be the
rule of the land. Now think
how easy it would be to com-
puterize all this. We should
then drop HIPPA so we can
transfer information from
I


one health care provider to
another. This would elimi-
nate completing the same
information as we go to one
provider to another or see a
new doctor. With this change
all providers would be
required to pay or be paid
within 45 days. This two-year
wait we hear about from doc-
tors and other providers
prove the present system is
broken. .


Triple all fines and jail time
for healthcare fraud. There
must be a severe price to pay
for taking advantage of the ill
and injured.
All retired doctors, den-
tists, nurses and other health
care professionals should
have a fast, low cost track to
be allowed to practice in non-
profit clinics and indigent
care. We must have these very
well qualified volunteers


available without licensing
problems.
It is time to do something.
Come up with other ideas,
write our government offi-
cials, let us take back our
health care system now!

Rebounding Croatia surprises, delights visitors


BYTONY CNBOY III
GUEST WRITER

Croatia delivers a truly
memorable travel experience
to visitors.
The country features mile
after mile of small seaside
villages with breathtaking
rock cliff-lined views of the
Adriatic'and its many islands;
a mountainous central region
of the country with a national
park that features spectacular
waterfalls rivaling the natural
beauty of anywhere in the
world; and, throughout the
countryside, a sprinkling of
centuries-old castles with rich
histories.
It is easy to forget that little
more than a decade ago por-
tions of Croatia were ravaged
by war. Now, some of the
only visible remaining evi-
dence of the war can be seen
in the signature Mediter-
ranean barrel tile roofs which
dot the homes and businesses
of the country. The roof tiles
that were repaired or replaced
because of war damage are
lighter in color than the older
tiles.
Today's Croatia is continu-
ing to improve daily. For
example, during the war our
college-age tour guide in
Dubrovnik and his family
were refugees, fleeing their
home to board a ship to
escape advancing enemy
forces. Today, his biggest
worry was taking a phone call
from his mother who was


by souvenir sellers, even in
the major cities. This was a
welcome change from my
previous visits to countries in
the Caribbean, as well as
South and Central America
where I was bombarded by
souvenir sellers and young-
sters seeking handouts. It
also appeared that no part of
the country or part of a par-
ticular city was "off limits,"
again a difference from visits
to other countries overseas.
For one country, Croatia
had three very distinct per-
sonalities: the Northern
Region which includes the
capital Zagreb; the Central
Region and the Southern
Region, or coastal region,
with its most well known
port city, Dubrovnik.
Zagreb
In Zagreb, it was like a trip
back in time or a trip back
over the Berlin Wall to the
countries of the former
Eastern Bloc. For those who
don't know the history of
Croatia, it is important to
remember it was once a part
of the former communist
Yugoslavia. Croatia declared
its independence in 1991.
The city is clean and easy
to get around thanks to its
1960s vintage street rail cars,
although their days are num-
bered. The modernization
program sweeping the nation
is impacting the streetcar
icons of the former East Bloc
capitals. New streetcars are

having trouble connecting to
the Internet from hef home.
Croatia has come quite aways
in a very short time.
Tourist safety
Tourist safety is an issue
everywhere these days. Al-
Sthough Croatia 'borders
Bosnia and Herzegovina it
has never been as unsafe as
those two countries, but is
often lumped in with them
for safety and other crime
and political issues.
During my brief visit,
Croatia appeared incredibly
safe. In fact, besides being
safe, it was refreshing to visit a
country and not be hounded

very American friendly. Edu-
cation was also stressed,
resulting in a highly literate
population. Throughout the
country, ATMs (automated
teller machines) are also
easy to find and major US
credit cards such as VISA/
MasterCard can be used at
many hotels, restaurants and
shops.
The highlight of a visit to
Zagreb is a ride on the cable
car that takes you to the Old
Town section of Zagreb at the
cost of less than one United
States dollar. The short Tide,
which runs every 10 minutes,
provides a panoramic view
of the city. When you exit the
cable car at the top of the hill,
you enter the city's culture
district. You are directly be-
neath the town's remaining
ancient watchtower. If you
want exercise, you can still
climb the tower. If you are vis-
iting around noon, plug your
ears for the cannon in the
tower is still fired each day at
noon.
Once outside the hustle
and bustle of Zagreb, the
small picturesque two-lane
roads lead to two surprising
destinations: hydrothermal
spas and castles.
In the days of commu-
nism, many of the commu-
nist elite would come to relax
and rejuvenate in the spas,
which are again gaining pop-
ularity with tourists. Cur-
rently, tourists are coming in
increasing numbers from
Israel, England and Ireland to
indulge in the waters of the
area. There also are a number
of new spa construction pro-
jects underway.

The winding roads also
lead to a number of Baroque-
era castles, some quite im-
pressive. The Dvor Veliki
Tabor Castle, located 45 min-
utes outside of Zagreb, is one
of the more memorable. It
looked like a castle as
described in a typical chil-
dren's fairytale book. It sits
perched on a hilltop and sur-
rounded by a vineyard, apple
trees and cherry trees. (Many
castles are privately owned in
Croatia; and, therefore are in
varying states of repair,
.depending on the owner's
personal finances.) Overall,
Croatia is a castle lover's
delight. There are literally
castles everywhere, so many
castles that on maps and in
towns they often are not even
properly indicated as tourist
attractions.
Plitvice Lakes
National Park
To earn your way onto the
UNESCO World Heritage List
a site must be special, but
don't take UNESCO's word for
it, see for yourself. The water-
falls at Plitvice Lakes were
amazing. There was no sur-
prise to me why this site qual-
ified as one of the six Croatian
sites to make the UNESCO
. list.
The park is two hours from
' Zagreb and difficult to get to,
but the trip is worth it. It fea-
tures spectacular waterfalls
and emerald green waters
that provide for great views
and unbelievable photos.

reception honoring Bank of America Client Foundation on
March 22 at the Crosley Mansion. The event was in recognition)
of the recent $25,000 gift for the Julius Brandenburg
Educational Leadership Scholarship. The Brandenburg Fund
has provided scholarship assistance for 15 talented, potential
Sarasota School district leaders. Brandenburg Scholars and
Foundation board members attending, left to right, are Carla
Wiggs, Edwina Oliver, Ruth Ranck, Leona Hughes, Monte
Marshall, Hilarie Krieg, Liz Lindsay and Latrina Singleton.


The Bank of America
Client Foundation Julius
Brandenburg Fund awarded
the University of South
Florida Sarasota-Manatee a
$100,000 gift to enhance a
state-of-the-art technology
classroom for use by USF

der construction and sched-
uled to open in fall 2006. The

of the New York Stock Ex-
change as a corporate bond

ally in 37 degree programs.

The Guide Dog Foundation
for the Blind Inc. seeks dog
lovers who are interested in
raising a guide dog puppy. The
program welcomes individu-
als and families of all ages and
backgrounds, including those
with other pets in the home.
The Guide Dog Foundation
has been breeding and train-
ing guide dogs since 1946, and
it wouldn't be successful with-
out this dedicated group of
volunteers known as Puppy
Walkers. Puppy Walkers pro-
vide a loving home and care
for Foundation puppies until
the dogs are old enough to


begin formal guide dog train- j
ing. Puppy Walkers take home
a 7-week-old puppy until it is
12-14 months old. They
housebreak the puppy, social-
ize it in different environ-,
ments, teach it to be well
mannered and provide the
loving attention it needs.
When the dog is about a year
old, the family returns the dog
to the Guide Dog Foundation.
so it can move ahead with its
new career.
With the rising demand for
guide dogs, there is a growing
need for more Puppy Walkers.
You can help by opening your
heart and home for our spe-
cially bred puppies. Your role
is essential in helping them
become guide dogs for the
blind. You'll receive love and
affection from the dog, plus
endless pride and satisfactioni
from the volunteer experi-
ence.
To learn more about be-
coming a Puppy Walker, call
the Guide Dog Foundation
Puppy Department toll-free at
(866) 282-8046 or (631) 930-
9060. For more information,

cation form, visit guidedog.

CROATIA from page 8B


With 16 separate lakes, it
would takes days to explore
them all, but the major water-
fall and a large lake that you
can walk across, thanks to a
wooden board walk, are with-
in easy walking distance.
While at the park, there is a
great opportunity for some
unique wildlife viewing in-
cluding: fox, wolf, skunk,
weasel, otter, deer, wild boar
and brown bear. Another big
plus, is that unlike many
American national parks, the
park is not overly crowded.
For visitors who want to
spend a number of days at the
park, there are at least two


nearby hotels and restau-
rants, and not much else
except spectacular views of
nature.
Dubrovnik
When many people think
of Croatia, they think of the
famous port city of Du-
brovnik, long the party play-
ground of the former Yugo-
slavia's elite. With a blend of
history and modem accom-
modations, it is quickly re-
gaining its popularity in
Europe as a place to visit. Its
narrow streets, or what could
better be described as alleys,
provide ample shopping op-


portunities from stores that
sit in historic buildings. Its
famous pharmacy dates back
to the 14th century. Its his-
toric town square, with its
clock tower, bustles with
activity any day of the week.
Dubrovnik was heavily
damaged in the recent war
but has rebounded complete-
ly. American and other cruise
line companies have begun
port calls at Dubrovnik and
the tourism industry is boom-
ing once again; an estimated
500 cruise ships called on
Dubrovnik last summer
alone.
Surrounded by hilltops
with steep cliffs, there are
now plenty of first-rate
accommodations directly on
the Adriatic with spectacular
views of the surrounding city.
Dubrovnik's Old Town castle,
which juts out into the
Adriatic, is the major attrac-
tion for tourists.
There is lots to do in while
in Dubrovnik, much of it cen-


tering around water. There
are beaches, boat rentals,
dive and fishing trips. Visitors
also can rent mopeds to see
the city. Arts and crafts
objects are sold by local arti-
sans on street.comers.
If you go
Getting to Croatia is one of
the most difficult parts of the
trip. There are currently no
direct flights from the United
States to Croatia, but at least
50 American tour operators
now have Croatia on their
itineraries. British Airways
and Lufthansa have connec-
tions to Croatia; Air Croatia
(the national carrier) also has
connections from a number
of European gateways. Check
with your travel consultant
and your favorite cruise
lines. Many lines stop at
Dubrovnik. For additional
information contact the
Croatian National Tourist
Board at: www.croatia.hr or
(800) 829.4416.


Buildings with new roofs cling to the hillside at Dubrovnik.

McLeod wanted to start a
chapter in Laurel because
there is a need for community
service there.
"These are areas where
poor people live and where
poor people need help,"
McLeod said. "That's why I'm
doing this to help people.
My philosophy is to help,
that's what we're all here to do.

Holocaust remembrance

service at Epiphany

Sunday, April 10, at 2:30 p.m., for the 15th year,
Bishop John J. Nevins will lead the Catholic Community
of the Diocese of Venice in commemorating Yom
Hashoah at Venice's Epiphany Cathedral, 350 Tampa Ave.
This Hour of Remembrance for the victims of the
Holocaust will feature Dr. Eugene Fisher, associate direc-
tor of the Secretariat for Ecumenical and Interreligious
Affairs of the United States Conference of Catholic
Bishops (USCCB). This year marks the 40th anniversary
of the signing by Pope Paul VI of the Second Vatican
Council document, NostraAetate, the Declaration on the
Relation of the Church to Non-Christian Religions. All
members of the community are invited to share this
opportunity for remembering and praying together for a
world where such terrible things as the Shoah may never
happen again.






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

OUR VIEW



Fish & Wildlife employee's firing deserves scrutiny


ast year, we wrote about U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service employee Andrew C.
Eller and the problems he was having
with higher-ups after he criticized methods
of classifying Florida panther habitat.
Eller, a 17-year employee, was eventually
fired. The official reason was that he often
turned in reports late. Eller fought back.
A hearing on Eller's dismissal looms and, if
a report last week turns out to be true, he
could be vindicated. If that happens, it could
mean big trouble for the USFWS hierarchy-
not to mention big changes in how approvals
for development and construction are made.
Eller got attention last year when he
claimed the USFWS had been tracking pan-


others' .movements during daylight hours -
when they usually sleep and seldom wander
far from their home base.
By doing that, rather than tracking the
radio-collared cats at night when they are off
in search of food, it allowed the service to
narrow the area designated as panther habi-
tat. Obviously, narrowing the area opened up
larger sections of Miami-Dade and Collier
counties to development.
Public Employees for Environmental
Responsibility came to Eller's aid. The group
has stood behind the USFWS veteran
throughout the past months and has lined up
a group of scientists who will testify in Eller's
defense at a hearing scheduled soon.


The scientists say they were told by federal
officials in Florida to not block construction
projects even if they could harm the pan-
thers.
Furthermore, they accuse Allen Webb, a
supervisor in the USFWSVero Beach office, of
ordering that no opinions should be issued
that would not allow a project to go forward.
Since last year's initial report by Eller, a
number of court decisions and internal
investigations have shed light on USFWS
errors in approving development projects in
Southwest Florida. Just ,last week, outgoing
USFWS Director Steve Williams admitted the
agency inflated panther population esti-
mates and under-reported the habitat needs


of the species to allow some projects to go
forward.
There are about 80 panthers roaming free
in Florida. Highway traffic takes its toll on
their dwindling numbers annually two
have been killed in the Venice area recently.
Their only hope for survival in the wild is to
keep the Everglades area and other large
habitats, such as Babcock Ranch, free of
development.
USFWS has the responsibility to protect
endangered species. If the accusations are
proven, there !should be immediate dis-
missals and a complete review of projects
that have been given a green light in the past
few years.


What about


diagonal parking?


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST

This is one of the questions
concerned citizens and plan-
riers have been working on
for the last several months for
the central business district.
They have been thinking of all
the things that could make it
better. They have had work-
shops and experts and heard
lots of opinions about traffic
patterns, pedestrian flow,
signs, furniture and landscap-
ing, holiday lighting and
parking.
The biggest issues are traf-
fic and parking. In season it is
very hard to get a parking
spot, and that is only going to
get worse as we add restau-
rants and shops to the down-
town, let alone more living
units.
The parking issue triggered
thoughts of going to one-way
streets, Tampa Avenue going
west and Miami Avenue
going, east with Venice
Avenue either the same as it is
or one lane each way to allow
for diagonal parking.
All of these changes would
gain just over 50 spaces. The
question many are asking is,
is it worth the mess that will
be created to do that for a
measly 50 spaces?
The fire and police depart-
ments are against the one-
way plans, and I imagine all
Epiphany goers would vote
against it. I think it is misguid-
ed (I actually had meaner
words but feel nice today).
Larry Heath, director of
public works, talked to the
Economic Development
Committee of the chamber,
which was unanimous that a
parking garage is needed.
They are not beautiful, but at
least one is a-must.
The study group has been
considering the lot next to
Althea's for a garage. Only this
site is being considered
because it is the only one the
city has control over. Our
group and others feel the city
needs to look at other
options, maybe striking a
partnership with a developer.
That leads to an idea called
in to me by someone with
good ideas. He would like to
see a parking garage on the lot
between the post office and
Bank of America. But he
would like to see three-story
buildings on the street with
stores below and apartments
above facing Venice Avenue.
His idea includes moving
all but the retail functions of
the post office off the island
so the post office be turned
into shops a mini-mall
with a major restaurant and a
courtyard in back.


His drought was this would
hide the parking garage, dress
up the main exposure and
make it financially appealing"
to the developers. I would like
to see my favorite negotiator,
Bob Anderson, or council
member John Moore work on
that project.
One person asked if the
city had determined how
many parking spaces will be
needed in the future. Larry
indicated that hadn't been
considered, which many felt
meant we had gone at this a
little backward.
My guess is if the recom-
mendation comes back that
we need a parking garage,
they will analyze a little more
how big it should be.
Whatever size is built will be
too small some day.
The group is thinking of
better and clearer signs, and
ways to direct pedestrian traf-
fic between Tampa and
Miami avenues. They want to
add in street pedestrian lights
I have seen recently that light
up as soon as a pedestrian
enters the crosswalk.
They also are looking at
some intersections, particu-
larly, Venice Avenue and
Harbor Drive. They have
three or four different plans,
one of which is a roundabout.
The lights are very old there
and the ADA accessibility is
bad, so much needs to be
done to this area.
'All the ideas are just that -
ideas. Nothing has been
decided, though not long
from now they will make rec-
ommendations to the city
manager and council. I think
some nice improvements will
come from it if we can find
the money, that is.


By's Crack: One
accountant claims he can
save you 90 percent on
your taxes and you'll be
able to sleep at night. Of
course, what else is there
to do in Leavenworth?


It is difficult for me to have
sympathy for Venice police
officers for being mistreated
on their contract demands
when they are being offered
increases of 6.2 percent and
4.5 percent over the next two
years.
They also get step increas-
es with time and grade
improvements. Th cost of
liing is less than 3 percent. I
know that they are having to
pay for health insurance, but
this deal is better than most
people get.

Now that Venice High has
installed new tennis courts, it
is looking for anyone who can
donate art adult tennis racket
that could be used for
instruction. Just take it to the
admin building right when
you first come on campus.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


How much money do they really need?


Editor:
Regarding the articles Eye On The Legislature, I think
another subtitle could have been; School board again endeav-
ors to raise local property taxes.
A different recent news report said that a majority of school
board members say the state doesn't adequately fund educa-
tion. Maybe somebody ought to ask state Rep. Detert and Sen.
Jones if this is true.. If so, maybe the state should provide ade-
quate funding so there would not be a need to extend referen-
dums.
Maybe another question is, why can't this school board live
within its means? And how amusing to read that the Citizens
for Better Schools is in the process of getting feedback on the
possible 2006 referendum,-knowing this is the same group that
advocating higher school property taxes in 2002.
How about instead having a truly independent group do
this? Guess it never occurred to this schoolboard.
Finally, shouldn't we put the horse before the wagon? Before
taxpayers are asked to vote on any new referendum, shouldn't
there be an independent analysis of what the 2002 referendum
has produced or failed to produce over four years? Just how
many millions do they need to produce successful students
here anyway? .
One thing seems obvious with this school board: They never
seem satisfied with the many millions we do give them. That
said, could the cycle be called spend and tax, or is it more ref-
erendums followed by more spending?

Schiavo
deserved better
Editor:
I've worked in the nursing
industry most of my adult life.
In any nursing home the
majority of the people would
not have chosen to' end their
lives in such a place with such
medical conditions. Mdst
have living wills and "do not
resuscitate" orders, yet they
live on.
Many of us in this industry
have spent our lives caring for
these people because it is
what we chose to do. Never
has it occurred to us to deny
them food and water. We give
them our best care and our
prayers and let God do the
rest.


Why was Terri Schiavo any
different? She may not have
chosen to be in an altered
state of consciousness, but
she wasn't terminal either.
It wasn't Michael Schiavo's
decision to make. Terri's par-
ents were willing to care for
her the rest of her life, but
Michael didn't want that. He
wanted her gone, and did not
want her parents to have any
Part of their daughter.
Each judge was asked by
the Schindlers to deny Mr.
Schiavo his request for death
only to be told no. It was as if
they were saying "she must
die."
After her death his real
intentions were again made
clear. He not only wouldn't
allow her parents to lay their


daughter to rest, but would
not even give them a gravesite
or memorial to visit.
Goodbye, Terri. Nothing to
show she was here. No grave,
no memorial, no flowers, no
more burden for Mr. Schiavo. .

Too few roads,
too much traffic
Editor:
I would like to make a
comment about traffic after
being stuck for 90 minutes on
Interstate 75 it took this
length of time to get from
North Port to Sarasota. Every
year when the northerners
come down, traffic would
become congested but at
least you could look forward
to some relief when they went
back. Now, because more and
more people are staying, the
roads ate just not enough for
all that traffic
You may ask what can be
done and we could come up
with a whole bunch of solu-
tions, some good and some
bad. The bottom line is that it
costs money and where are
Swe going to get it from? Here
are a few ideas I have in mind:
Gas taxes
Raise taxes
For P75, we could charge
tolls
Impact fees
Those are just a few, and I
know no one cares for any of
them, but the fact is I don't
believe the money can come
from too many other places. If
anyone has any other ideas,
why don't you come to a
transportation advisory
board or a Metropolitan
Planning Organization board


meeting and express your
ideas instead of griping about
it?
Diana Delvecchio
North Port

Take the pledge
to preserve Venice
Editor:
Listen to what the people
are saying, and hot only to
those of us who are willing to
turn out'to public meetings.
The most common con-
cern expressed by the every-
day folks that I have conver-
sations with on the subject of
the future ofVenice is that this
great little place is at risk of
losing that small-town feeling
that the people here value
above just about everything
else. They all want to keep
that.
Too many higher-rise
buildings are seen, as the
biggest threat to this, espe-
cially when they are in high-
profile locations.
Losing plentiful, natural
access to the waterfront by
the development of more and
more condo buildings that
then provide waterfront
access affordable only to the
few at the loss to the majority,
is making people feel that the
city decisions are being dri-
ven by tax dollars alone.
Let the planners come
right out and say as a matter
of policy that, as Venice
inevitably grows, they will do
all that they can to retain the
small-town feeling of Venice
and protect waterfront access
for the many, not just for the
few.

Well, it worked up north


Give it a shot. I had a comment to make about making the
streets one-way traffic. I know in the downtown area in
Columbus, Ohio, it worked perfectly. It was the answer to 90
percent of the problems. I think we need to give it a shot,
because whatever is happening now is not working and any-


one can vouch for the fact.

No problem. I like your
three-times-a-week subscrip-
tion, which I now have. The
Venice Gondolier Sun is better
than ever. There are more arti-
cles, more columns, and the
pictures are great, they're big-
ger. Your cartoonist is pretty
sharp too. And I like the Word
on the Street. And there are
extras like the Community
Resource Directory That gets
an 'A+". When I don't have time
to read that and two other
papers on Sunday- I get three
papers I save them for the
week. So there's no problem
having a Sunday paper.


Clueless. I just want to
make a comment on how dis-
appointed I was Sunday
when I went up to the new
Caspersen Beach park and
was told by a private group
having a party that we were
not allowed back there to get
to the kayak ramp. We weren't
sure where it was. I called the
nonemergency number for
the Venice Police, who were
very nice but had no clue
where it was. I called the
Marine Patrol; they said there
was not one up there, they
don't know of any kayak ramp
up there. And I called the


sheriff's department. They
were very, very rude, told me
they could not answer that
question, had no clue and
didn't have time for this. I was
very disappointed. The
Venice Police were very nice;
the rest I think could use a lit-
tle help in their communica-
tion departments.
No time. I'm just want to
add my comment about the
Sunday paper. I loved receiv-
ing the paper on Saturday. I
had time to sit back and read.
But on Sunday I don't have
time, and I don't like three
days a week. Two was enough.
Bad sign? I must be getting
old: I look in Police Beat and
don't recognize any of the
names, and I look in the
Obituaries and I see a lot of
familiar names. Time march-
es on.

VEDDER from page 15A
Do not miss the last day of
the Shark's Tooth Festival, and
while you're there buy a duck in
the Rotary Duck Pluck Lots of
prizes, and the proceeds go to
VHS's Rotary Futures program.

The Gondolier Sun has been
notified by the Florida Press
Association that we have won
15 awards for excellence in
journalism. All of our editorial
staff has been recognized.
Bob Mudge won for a first
amendment editorial while
Tommy McIntyre won for a
series he did on the Pelican
Man Sanctuary. Claude Lewis
won several'awards and Kim
Cool won for criticism and an
article on the environment.
Talented photographer
George McGinn won three
awards (he now works for our
paper in North Port) and
another news staffer, Rob
Broyles, won for original art
we used in a story on turtles
and one he did on fifth-
graders. One of our cartoon-
ists, Dale Neseman, who does


a great job for us, won for his
"Cane Mutiny."
We also won for design of
our Editorial pages and the
community service series
about the United Way we start-
ed last year. Our Best of Venice
section was also recognized.
At the convention in June,
the exact award won by these
entries will be announced, and
we'll learn whether we have
won the top spot in the state for
the seventh year in a row.

Today's ism (on alibrarywall
in Durham, N.C.): Beauty is
only a light switch away.

I had a call to add to the
Osprey nest idea. The caller
pointed out that there is a
cement pole next to the intra-
coastal by the train depot that
would be a great place to place
a platform.
At the ceremony for the
acquisition of the new rail cor-
ridor connecting Venice and
Sarasota I talked to the county
folks and it looks like there is a
good chance we could move
forward on that.


The county is moving fast
on the new trail and is nearing
the point to bid out tearing out
the rail bed and paving the
walkway. County commission-
er Dave Mills indicated we
should be using portions of it in
a year and a half. Some of this
trail goes through Oscar
Scherer State Park, which
should make for a beautiful
trail.

Keith Backhaus, who writes
columns for us, had a sugges-
tion to get park benches at
SCAT stops. What a great ser-
vice club project. Of course, in
some cases shelters would also
be nice.

The EnvisionVenice process
is moving along. The staff, par-
ticularly Kathie Ebaugh, has
put together wonderful pre-
sentations and some very
interesting facts. For instance,
did you know that a median
home price in Venice is
$299,000?

Bumper sticker: People are
generally nasty; get over it.

I DENTAL ANALGESICS
Analgesics are medicines that relieve pain without entirely depressing
the central nervous system. The most popular analgesics are aspirin
1 and acetaminophen. These are often combined with other analgesics
such as phenacetin and caffeine to enhance the result. Aspirin is
u usually the first choice for dental pain. It is inexpensive, non-addictive.
and generally well tolerated. Aspirin should always be swallowed to
relieve pain, never held directly on the gum where it causes ulceration
and sloughing of the oral tissues. An aspirin burn looks worse than it
, really is and heals without treatment.
Aspirin should not be used by people with a history of peptic ulcers.To
^ avoid the risk of Reye's syndrome, a rare but serious illness, children
recovering from chicken pox or flu should not be given aspirin.
Alternative products such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen have
qualities like aspirin and may be tolerated better. As with aspirin, long
ibuprofen use can cause ulcers and prolonged bleeding.

Charges unlikely in shooting


BY GAVIN OFF
STAFF WRITER


A neighbor who was target
shooting may have fired the
bullet that struck a North
Englewood man last month,
Sarasota County Sheriff's offi-
cials said Tuesday.
Detectives are testing a
gun that may have fired the
bullet that struck John C.
Herndon, of Keyway Road.
The bullet hit Herndon in the
left side of his abdomen
March 24 while he was work-
ing next to his backyard gre-
enhouse around 5:40 p.m.
Hemdon, 49, told police he
heard three rapid gunshots
and was struck by the second
one.
Sgt. Chuck Lesaltato said a
50-year-old neighbor told po-
lice he was target-shooting
around that time. He told po-
lice he did not realize a neigh-
bor had been shot.
"We believe it was a neigh-
bor target-practicing," Lesal-
tato said. "If that's the case,
there is no criminal intent
and the guy will not be
charged."
Lesaltato said state laws
allow a person to use a fire-
arm on his or her own proper-
ty. He said test results would
be released within a week or
two.
"We want to make sure this
is the guy," Lesaltato said. "We
have to cross all of our t's and
dot all of our i's."
Area residents said target
shooters and hunters love the
neighborhood of thick woods
and dirt-roads.
Within minutes of the sho-
oting, dozens of emergency
personnel, firefighters and
police officers arrived on the

Got Paradise? If Not, We Can Install It For You In
About A Day!
It's Called A Pond.
If you've ever seen a pond before, please don't presume that you know what
I'm talking about. I'm not talking about one of those pea-green soup cesspools
that take you hours to maintain everyday. No, I'm talking about a sparkling,
clear, freshwater pond with fish, turtles, blooming flowers, and a magnificent
waterfall. These ponds are alive, overflowing with life. and they take very little
time to maintain. You don't even have to feed the fish! But, you'll love doing so.
Don't be surprised if you shut off the TV and start spending time around the
pond. Plenty of my customers have reported spending hours outside sitting and
talking to each other (imagine that) and enjoying their pond. So you've been
warned!
Every pond I've installed has changed an owner's life. All my homeowner
customers say they've become the talk of their neighborhood. Everyone wants to
see their pond. All their friends and family members want to spend time around
the pond. One of the best parts is that a pond can increase the value of your
home by thousands of dollars. In other words, installing a pond is a good sound
investment in your home.
For Your Little Piece of Paradise Call Brad at

Fix a dent in wood furniture

By JAMES and MORRIS CAREY
FOR AP WEEKLY FEATURES
Fix a dent in wood furniture (not to be confused with
gouges, which are indentations in which some of the wood
grain is torn out) by placing a drop of water in the depres-
sion, covering the spot with a damp cloth, then applying a
hot iron to it for several seconds. Your dent should pop up
after one or two steamings.
