Mayor Dean Calamaras
may have cast one of his most
difficult votes in more than 15
years on Venice City Council.
He voted in favor of Venice
Taxpayers League president
Herb Levine, one of the
mayor's most vocal critics, so
city council can hold its own
hearing on a new downtown
building that exceeds height
restrictions.
,"We're doing the wrong
thing with giving him (legal)
standing on this, but we really
need to hear this," Calamaras
said after casting the deciding
vote.
Levine was deemed "ag-
grieved" by the special excep-
tion for height, granted by the
Venice Planning Commission
in January. The vote was 4-2,
with Fred Hammett and Rick
Tacy agreeing with -City


Attorney Bob Anderson that
Levine lacked the legal status
needed for such an appeal.
Council member Vicki
Taylor was absent.
Those voting in favor of
Levine all' said he met the city
law's intendon, even though
he doesn't own any neighbor-
ing property.
This is the first de, novo
review to appear before city
council since the process was
adopted last fall. The goal was

Don't buy that backflow valve yet


Confusioniand negotiations continue in the city's
effort to meet Clean Water Act updates to protect
its drinking water.

Latest news from Venice
City Council: Don't rush out
and install a backflow preven-
tion assembly- yet.
And if you already have
one, call the city utilities de-
partment before replacing it.
Depending on which of


the city's estimated 13,000
water customers you are, that
was good news or bad news.
Those slow to meet stricter
compliance standards are
happy at sating anywhere
from $300 to $600 on installa-
tion costs.
Odither groups, like home-
owner associations trying to
stay ahead of new 'laws,


couldn't believe they were
hearing city council and staff
suggest they might not even
need :the plumbing device
that protects the public
drinking water supply.
"If the paper says you don't
have to do anything now, my
credibility is going to go
straight down the drink," said
Dick Huibregtse, president of
the Waterford Homeowners
Association.
Huibregtse told council he
had already convinced hun-
dreds of Waterford property
owners they needed to pur-


chase the expensive devices,
and based on Tuesday's city-
council meeting, those costs
may not have been necessary.
Or they may have been.
Not even city staff knows for
sure.
Council members directed
city staff to ask regulating
agencies, which are pushing
these new rules, for more flex-
ibility. They also asked for an
estimate on costs if the city
handled installation and
annual testing, rather than
putting all of the costs on
property owners.


What's required?
There is no blanket expla-
nation for what is required
and how the process will be
done, according to City Man-
agerMarty Black and Utilities
Manager Chris Sharek. These
sets of rules have been passed
down from federal to state to
county and now city levels.
Each stage, compliance
standards become a little
more strict, according to
Sharek. Sarasota County

Richard Burton and Alfred
Nobel all have in common?
You may have guessed it:
They all had epilepsy.
Epilepsy comes from a
Greek word meaning "posses-
sion." The Greeks believed
seizures were caused by de-
mons, and regarded them as
a supernatural phenomenon.
The true nature of epilepsy
has long been distorted by
myth and fear, and people
continue to hold mistaken
notions about the disorder.
Due to the stigma sur-

rounding epilepsy and the
prejudice with which society
has historically treated peo-


pie with epilepsy, many with
the disorder, are reluctant to
admit it or to seek treatment.
Thus the prevalence of epi-
lepsy is likely much higher,
according to theWorld Health
Organization.
Part of Epilepsy Services of
Southwest Florida's charge is
to dispel the myths and bring
services that lead to success
for those with epilepsy.
Chief among the myths is
that epilepsy is a disease.

Tiger Bay Club the lack of economic opportuni-
ties and disease in many Third World areas cre-

BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR
George Tenet didn't divulge
any secrets, but did give his
audience an inside look at the
war on terrorism and the cur-
rent state of the world.
Tenet, who served as the
director of the U.S. Central
Intelligence Agency from
1997 to 2004, talked about the
agency he headed, the war on
terrorism and general expec-


stations for the future in a
speech during the 15th annu-
al banquet of the Sarasota
Tiger Bay Club last week.
Tenet told the 250 Tiger
Bay members who came to
hear him that the country
faced a "smart, sophisticated
enemy" focused on small'
attacks to inflict "psychologi-
cal and economic damage" to

height exception case caused
them to ignore their own
rules.
"City council wants to hear
the appeal, they ignored the
law and they ignored their
own city attorney," Roberts
said.
No groundswell
Vice Mayor John Moore, a
former judge, based his vote
in favor of Levine mostly on
his interpretation of the law,
while Calamaras, Bill Willson
and John Simmonds all talked
about the importance of
being able to hear this case.
But none .of those four
council members himself had
asked to hear the case. De
novo review standards state
that any person aggrieved or
city council itself can appeal
planning commission rul-
ings.
No one on council, howev-


er, asked for a review within
the 15-day filing deadline.
Levine was the only private
citizen to step forward and
pay the $300 required to have
such an appeal granted.
After Tuesday's meeting,
Moore said he only would've
filed an appeal on behalf of
city council if there were a
"groundswell" of citizens call-
ing him to do something.
That never happened,
despite all the talk by council
about needing to hear thigh
case.
"If Herb had not stepped
up and filed this appeal, I per-
sonally would not have
stepped in (and filed one),"
Moore said. "No (citizens)
called me and asked me to do
something."

VALVE from page 1 A


given the power to endorse
Venice's plan to protect the
drinking water supply, but
city staff continues to negoti-
ate deadlines for compliance
and which water customers
must install the device.
Sharek offered a recap of
existing rules:
Testing Every backflow
prevention valve must be test-
ed and recertified on an
annual basis. The property
owner does this by hiring a
certified backflow tester,
which the city estimates as
costing between $25 and $50.
, Failure If a tester says
your valve has failed, contact
the city utilities department at
480-3333 before paying to
repair or replace it. Sharek
offers this advice to help pre-
vent homeowners from being
overcharged or installing
potentially outdated devices.
No valve, If your home
does not currently have a back-
flow valve, hold off on installing
one until official notification
comes from the city.
That last part affects many
of the city's 13,000 water cus-
tomers, and Sharek cannot
offer a deadline for when
Venice will know who must
install one and level of required
protection. The higher the pro-
tection level, the more expen-
sive the plumbing equipment.
Some property owners
have already been hit with
fines and loss of water ser-
vices because they lack an
operating backflow device.
Sharek said this has only been
done with high-risk proper-
ties, according to existing
rules, in which the 'owners
refused to comply.
Another impediment is the
loss of John Newburn, aveter-
an water department em-
ployee who's handled these.
new requirements for more
than a year, because he's
accepted another job.
With Newburn leaving, the
utilities department must hire
a new supervisor, expect that
person to help create the plan
and then seek county health
department approval.
"This will slow things down
even further with (Newbum)
leaving," Sharek said.

High-tech school plan tied to'06 referendum


Superintendent Gary Norris' five-year plan
emphasizes technology, the New 3 "R's" and
active learning. While short on details and with-
out a price tag, one thing is certain Norris sees
it tied to a 2006 referendum.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF.WRITER'

Superintendent Gary Nor-
ris introduced business lead-
ers to the "new 3R's" rigor,
relevance, relationships on
Monday as he described his
vision for Sarasota schools.
He could as easily have
added a fourth R resources.
It's going to take resources,.
,and the passage of a school
tax referendum in 2006, to
meet the needs of the next
generation of learners under
Norris' plan.
Norris gave an overview of
his five-year plan for Sarasota
County schools Monday
afternoon before an audience
:of business leaders and edu-
cators at Medical Education
Technologies Inc., and L-3
Technologies, high-tech Sara-
'sota businesses that, respec-
tively,. build medical man-
nequins for hospital training
and black boxes for airplanes.
"We need to prepare our
kids for this type of work-
force," Norris said. "In addi-
tion to the 3R's, we need to
Tocus our efforts in rigorous
standards for students, rele-
yant classroom' experiences
that reduce the dropout rate,
and build on relationships."
. Today's workforce works in
groups, not in isolation, he
said, giving his stamp of
approval to team-teaching
efforts 'and group learning
activities for students.
, "We are only a few steps
from making a giant leap for-
ward" and meeting the kind of,,
workforce needs described by
business leaders, said Norris.


Correction
The two big cats killed re-
cently in the Venice area were
bobcats, not Florida panthers,
as stated in our Sunday edito-
rial. the Venice Gondolier Sun
regrets the error.


Spending wisely
In an understated manner,
Norris linked his vision of a
vibrant school system that
generates tech-savvy high
school graduates to passage
of a 2006 school tax referen-
dum.
"When voters in 2002
agreed to increase their prop-
erty taxes by one mill, they
put their faith and trust in the
school system. By all mea-
sures, the school board has
spent the added revenue as
promised, according to a
recent report by the Financial
Advisory Committee, an inde-
pendent group of local busi-
ness leaders," Norris said.
"I know we spend wisely,
and I know you think so, even
if a few people think we don't.
"It does take resources to
move a district forward. We
cannot close the achievement
gap without it. We're going to
ask for your support in 2006,"
he said.
Pillars of learning
Resources are just one of
Norris' "five pillars" of Next
Generation Learning that will
be needed to create a founda-
tion on which to build stu-
dent success. The other four
pillars are quality, people, ser-
vice and safety.


Quality goals of the district
include closing the achieve-
ment gap, infusing rigor into
the classroom experience and
providing technical training
opportunities that culminate
in some form of certificate.
Another pillar is people
power.
"Organizations improve as
people improve," said Norris.
The school board, the
county's largest employer, will
invest significant resources in
its people, creating a Pro-
fessional Learning Commun-
ity dedicated to collaboration
instead of the lonely, solitary
existence that most teachers
experience, he said.
A fourth pillar focuses on
customer service. Norris
would like to see the district
more "customer oriented,"
where students, parents and
taxpayers are treated with
respect. The acclaimed Or-
ganizational Excellence Pro-
gram at Sarasota Memorial
Hospital will serve as the
model for a similar program
in the district.
School safety-is the fifth pil-
lar. Norris said it was his
intention to reduce bullying
and train students in conflict
resolution techniques.
He alsb pointed to future
use of GPS tracking of buses
and students with identifica-
tion cards, and a new online
system for parents to track
grades and attendance avail-
able in real time.
Front line
Norris used his bully pulpit'

Superintendent Gary Norris
explains his plan for advanc-
ing technology in Sarasota
County schools. He presented
the plan to business leaders
in Sarasota on Monday.

to encourage school leaders
and educators to seek com-
munity volunteers to serve as
mentors for all at-risk stu-
dents, support small learning
communities and foster "real
world" learning in order to
reduce dropout rates and
keep kids engaged.
Julia Kerr, a Riverview High
School senior, gave a testimo-
nial in support of her real-
world learning experience -
interning at Nlote Marine.
"There was no impetus to
stay in school," Kerr told the
audience, until she was
accepted into an internship at
Mote Marine Institute.
"There's no better way for
kids to learn than through


internships. Even if you
switch internships midway
through the school year, at
least that's better than going
to college and switching your
major midway through and
wasting $10,000 in the pro-
cess."
But not all kids are ready for
internships and high-tech
training at the high school
level, said Lamar Holsopple,
English department chair at
Sarasota High. While the
superintendent's plan calls for
"enabling every student to
graduate ready for post-sec-
ondary training or education,"
Holsopple's world consists of
ninth-graders, who he says are
a little tougher to find intern-
ships for, or jobs. His students
are three to five years behind
in reading levels.
"I'd like to see more re-
sources spent on the front
lines in the classroom. Not all
kids are going on to college,
unlike the direction this dis-
trict steers them toward.
Vocational education is good,
too. We need both postsec-
ondary-oriented training, and
vocational/technical oppor-
tunities," he said.
"This whole plan is geared
toward gaining support for
the referendum. And the
community would by and
large support that if it is spent
on the front lines."
Oversight
Lacking in the superinten-
dent's plan was an eiiiphasis
on parents, said parent advo-
cate Elizabeth Cuevas-Neun-


Your rate


der.
"I don't think it's necessary
to pass another referendum
until I see rigorous action to
involve parents in their chil-
dren's education," she said.
"No matter how much we
spend on technology we will
still have the same problems
in our schools unless we en-
gage parents and make them
an active participant. Parent
involvement is a pillar too."
She called the lack of
emphasis on parents an over-
sight.
"I'm delighted superinten-
dent Norris is taking a new
view of technology, But we
have to put parents in the dri-
ver's seat. Everywhere kids are
successful, it's because par-
ents prove they have the tools
and are participating in their
child's education. Until we
make parents the center of
every strategic plan for the
future, we are not going to be
successful.
"I would have loved to see
this effort launched before an
audience of parents first.
Parents are also taxpayers."

Council members approve EPA plea agreement


A plea agreement between the city and the EPA
will now go before a federal judge, who is likely to
accept it, but is not required to.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR


The door is nearly closed
on years of investigations and
nearly $1 million worth of
fines, legal fees and settle-
ments all leading back to the
Venice Utilities Department.
City council has agreed the
city will plead guilty to vio-
lating Clean Water Act regula-
tions, and now must help
prosecute the former employ-
ees involved. Venice faces
the minimum fine possible,
$110,000, but a federal judge
could impose higher fines.
The hardest part of this for


City Manager Marty Black to
accept is Venice taking the
blame for the actions of em-
ployees, he said before the
council meeting.
In more than three years of
lawsuits and investigations,
Black estimates nearly $1 mil-
lion of taxpayers money has
been spent in civil lawsuit set-
tlerments, criminal fines, legal
.fees and environmental miti-
gation penalties.
"That's the hardest part of
this to accept, that the com-
munity is having bear this
burden, and it's not just the
people involved in these
actions," Black said. "It creates


a shadow over the city's his-
tory. ... It's not a pleasant
thing for anyone to face."
The city is not pleading
guilty to causing any environ-
mental impacts; however, the
agreement does leave Venice
open to "victim" compensa-
tion.
The first two charges in-
volve discharging reclaimed
water into Curry Creek and on
the surface at Knight Trail Park
without measuring how much
water was released. The third
and final charge deals with
forged environmental reports,
where numbers were filled in
despite all measuring instru-
ments being "inoperable,"
according to the agreement.
No one knows how much
treated. water was released
into the environment.


City Attorney Bob Ander-
son pointed out that this
agreement cites 22 days in
which the city was in viola-
tion. Initially, the U.S. Attorney
and Environmental Protec-
tion Agency were seeking to
punish the city for doing this
on 108 different days, And-
erson said.
Even with the minimum
fine of $5,000 each day, that
penalty would have topped at
least $540,000, and Venice
risked that penalty if the case
went to trial. The city manager
said in a weekend story he
believes the previous waste-
water department manage-
ment simply ignored environ-
mental permit laws.,
After motioning to accept
the plea agreement, Vice
Mayor John Moore spoke to


the public.
"I feel compelled to assure
the citizens ... this type of
behavior will not occur again,"
Moore said.
Other agenda items
Here's a recap of other is-
sues before council members
Tuesday:
Noise Exemption They
passed an amendment so city
garbage and refuse vehicles no
longer violate noise restric-
tions. The amended ordi-
nance exempts city garbage
trucks from violating the law,
which the solid waste depart-
ment was violating before 10
a.m. on weekends and holi-
days.
Resident Rose Marie Mar-
tini asked council to reject the
ordinance, especially after it


took her eight months of
pleading to council in 1992 to.,
stop the loud clanging and,.
banging of city dumpsters at 5'2
.a.m. outside her bedroom
window.
"I fought for eight months'
before the matter was re-'
solved," Martini said. "Please'"
don't make me fight this
again."
City Manager Marty Black&
promised that garbage trucks'
will not be running earlier,
and the change was only'
requested because of new.
routes on holidays and week-'
ends. A new city ordinance'
outlining specific hours of
garbage collection will be pre>-
sented at a later date.

County frustrated

with impact fee bill'

Changes that would weaken the effect
of impact fee ordinances could cost the county
almost $6 million that could be used for new
roads, libraries and other infrastructure.


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


The message coming Tues-
day from the Sarasota County
commissioners to the devel-
opment community was clear
- if a bill in the state Legis-
lature regarding impact fees
became law, there would be
consequences.
And one of those conse-
quences would be the shift of
$5.92 million in lost revenues
from impact fees to county
taxpayers to make up the
shortfall.
'At the heart of this legisla-
tion is a cost shift from the
developers to existing tax-
payers," said Deputy County,
Administrator Dave Bullock.
"The point is that this is a shift
sponsored by one particular
interest that's experiencing a
boom and wants to shift costs
to the taxpayers."
Impact fees are a form of
tax imposed by county gov-
ernments- on anyone who
builds a new house to account
for the impact that home will
have on infrastructure, such
as roads, parks and libraries.
The bill, introduced by
local representatives Sen.
Mike Bennett, R.-Bradenton,
and Rep. Donna Clarke, R.-
Sarasota, would require coun-
ties and cities
to provide
credits to
builders and
developers
for taxes and
assessments
they paid for
at least the
last 20 years
that fund in- Thaxton
frastructure
improvements; limit the im-
position of administrative
fees; and require a refund if
the fees are not spent within a
specified time.
The bill unanimously
passed the House Growth
Management Committee on
March 22 and is currently
awaiting action by the Local
Government Council of the
House. In the Senate, the Reg-
ulated Industries Committee
passed the measure on Mon-
day after adding an amend-
ment that grandfathered in
existing impact fees.
Bullock said it was unclear
what effect that amendment
had on the measure.
'Egregious'
Bullock .said county staff
had analyzed the bill as it cur-
rently exists to assess its im-
pact, and determined that it
would result in the loss' of
$5.92 million from impact
fees used to fund rIads,
libraries, parks, water and
sewer, and fire and emergency
medical services.
"This is a classic example
of why we have runaway
constitutional amendments
in Florida," said commission-
er Jon Thaxton. "This is egre-


gious and unacceptable."
But one commissioner
said passage of the measure
would not affect her feeling
about property taxes.
"I will not raise property
taxes because of this," said
Shannon Staub. "It will be
done in other ways, and
the development community
won't be pleased with the
results."
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson suggested that funds
raised from the telecommuni-
cations tax and gas taxes
were discretionary in nature
and could be
diverted from
supporting
the county's
road building
program to
use for other
purposes
such as side- i,
walks and ,
trails. Doing Patterson
so, she said,
would then leave only impact
fees paid by developers to
build new roads.
"The results won't be pret-
ty," Patterson said.
'Forget libraries'
County Administrator Jim
Ley has already suggested that
the county might move to a
road program that, instead of
addressing future needs now
when it was less expensive to
acquire land, would empha-
size 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 develop-
ments reach a certain point.
But, if the county lacks
funding to build future roads,
then future developments
could not be
approved be-
cause of the
concurrency
requirement.
Staub also
had dire
warning for
the '.impact of
the legislation
'on parks and Staub
libraries.
"If this happens (passage of
the bill), forget libraries and
parks for awhile," Staub said.
"You'll be waiting a long time
for new ones."
While voicing their frustra-
tions with the legislation, com-
missioners were careful to
exclude the local development
community from criticism.
Both Staub and commis-
sion chair Paul Mercier said
they had spoken to leaders
of two local development
groups, who had disavowed
knowledge of the legislation,
which is being supported by
the Florida Homebuilders As-
sociation.

Extra caution urged

with debris burning


BY ROBERT BOWDEN
STAFF WRITER

The Florida agriculture
commissioner has asked extra
caution be taken to prevent
woods fires.
Commissioner Charles
Bronson issued his appeal as
part of Fire Awareness Week,
which began Sunday.
The week was designated
by-the state Cabinet in 1999,
following a particularly dis-
astrous fire season that saw
4,9,00 wildfires destroy 330
buildings and scorch more
than half a million acres.
Help came from all over
the United States to help
Florida fight the fires of 1998.
But much of the first part
of this spring's dry season
has been unusually wet, a fact
Bronson acknowledged.
"Even though we've had an
unusually wet spring, I en-
courage all Floridians to be
very careful with any outdoor
fires," he said.
So, far this year, there have
been 1,100 wildfires that have
burned 13,000 acres of Florida
woodlands. Forty-eight build-
ings have been lost.
"The state has just begun
what is normally its driest
period," Bronson noted, 'April
and May."
We're wet
As of Monday, the state
averaged 129 on a drought,
index where anything under
400 is "wet."
Sarasota County has
received the most rain in this
area this year and its index
Monday was 99.:
Bronson noted that Florida
has a 12-month fire season
because of our tropical cli-
mate, and as little as two


weeks without rain can result
in a spurt of the drought index
and add dangers of wildfires.
"This year," he said, "fire-
fighters will have to deal with
another factor that threatens
to make wildfires more diffi-
cult to control the thou-
sands of dead trees uprooted
by last year's hurricanes."
Hurricane Charley left dev-
astation in DeSoto woods, as
well as those east of coastal
Charlotte County. Winds
above 60 mph in DeSoto
from Hurricanes Frances and
Jeanne further broke up the
forests.
"Dead and dying trees and
shrubs from the 2004 hurri-
canes and tropical storms are
now additional fuel for wild-
fires," Bronson said. "We
could have severe wildfires
for several years to come
because of the massive
amounts of woody debris in
our forests and wildlands."
The dead trees are under
insect attack, but it will be
years before they cease to be a
fire hazard.
Bum safely
Bronson said forestry offi-
cials "are especially concerned
that homeowners disposing of
hurricane debris may acci-.
dentally cause a wildfire."
"Escaped debris fires are a
frequent cause of wildfires in
Florida," he said. "If you still
have leaves and other debris
from the 2004 storms, first
consider using the lighter
organic material for mulch,
then set larger pieces aside for
curbside pickup if it is avail-
able. If you still have debris to
bum, contact the local office
of our Division of Forestry so
you know how to burn safely
and legally."


BOCC to consider school board request


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


With a partnership now in
place between Sarasota
County and North Port to sell
tax-delinquent lots, a third
entity wants to join the ar-
rangement.
Sarasota County commis-
sioners will discuss on
Wednesday a request from
School Stiperintendent Gary
Norris that the school system
be allowed to become a par-
ticipant in the process of dis-
posing of the 2,200. lots ac-
quired by the county when
the owners failed to pay taxes
on them.
Looking at North Port's
future growth, Norris said that
the city will need three new
elementary schools, a new
middle school and a new high
school. The school system is
already in the process of ac-
quiring 110 lots near Atwater
Street for the fifth elementary
school in the city, and it has
found that land costs have
"multiplied eight to 10 times
in less than three years,"
Norris wrote.
In the last five years, the
school board spent $130 mil-
lion on land acquisition and
construction costs to build a
third elementary school, high
school and middle school in
North Port.
Norris' letter notes that the
school system is attempting to,
identify the other sites needed
within the next 10 years and
estimates that potential sites
might include 5 to 10 percent
of the lots already in public
ownership. That estimate
could include 25 to 40 lots and
reduce the school board's
costs of acquiring land for
new school sites.
In addition, Norris is
requesting that the county
and city transfer to the school
board the ownership. of 286


lots it could then use for a
land-swap program. In that
scenario, the parties would
trade land with property own-
ers in areas where the school
board needs land.
If the county and city don't
want to transfer land owner-
ship, then Norris is requesting
that both governments con-
sider a minimum contribu-
tion of $5 million each from
proceeds of the lots sales that
the board could use to pur-
chase land.
Either approach, Norris
argues, would benefit the
school system and the resi-
dents of North Port by allow-
ing the system to use the
money to construct schools
rather than buying land,
which would stretch the sys-
tem's capital budget "very
thin" during the next 10 years,
precisely when the new
schools will be needed.
"The money is coming
back to North Port," Norris
said in an earlier interview. "I
don't see a down side to this
proposal."
Besides the request from
Norris, commissioners will
also consider a request to
transfer $800,000 from the
general fund to a special fund
created for the lot sales. This
money will be used to pay for
appraisal costs and other costs
associated with the sale of the
lots.
Because of the public inter-
est in the sale of the lots, staff
from the city and county are
.also proposing the creation of
a link on the county's Web site
that will allow residents to
track the sales and provide
information about the lots.
This information, could in-
clude parcel numbers and
the market values once the
appraisal work has been com-
pleted.
The county acquired the
lots since 1992 after the own-


ers had failed to pay taxes on
them. With the county not
taking action to dispose of
them, city officials filed suit
against the county last year
to acquire title to the proper-
ty. The two boards met in a
mediation session in early
December and reached
agreement on the broad out-
lines of a settlement. County
commissioners, approved
that agreement on Feb. 22,
followed by North Port on
March 28.
Because of Sarasota Coun-
ty's hot real estate markets,
property appraisers have esti-
mated the county and city
could reap profits of $20 mil-
lion to $40 million from the
sale of the lots.
Commissioners will meet


in regular session beginning
at 9 a.m. Tuesday and
Wednesday in Commission
Chambers in the County Ad-
ministration Center, 1660
Ringling Blvd., Sarasota.
In addition, Access Sara-
sota Channel 19 will carry the
meeting live in its entirety for
viewing by Sarasota County
residents and will repeat the
broadcast throughout the
week. A program schedule is
available on the county's Web
site (scgov.net) by selecting
media from the links list at
the top of the page, then the
appropriate television sched-
ule.

Friday, April 22.
The health department is
continually recruiting volun-
teers and student interns who
can share their time and tal-
ent and have a desire to be
part of a quality organization.
Currently volunteer positions
are available as Spanish lan-
guage interpreters, licensed
physicians and nurses and
clerical support.
The health department's
Medical Reserve Corps,
which is composed exclusive-
ly of volunteers who serve in

Described videos
available at
Jacaranda library
Sarasota County residents
with visual impairments have
a new resource for enjoying
feature films.
The Francis T. Bourne


Jacaranda Public Library in
Venice now has a circulating
collection of Described
Videos housed in its Low
Vision/Hearing Room, and
will begin showing films from
the collection at 2 p.m. on the
third Saturday of each month
in the library's meeting room.
"Two Weeks Notice," the first
film in the series, will be
shown on Saturday, April 16,
during National Library
Week.
Described videos are fea-
ture films and TV programs
with audio descriptions of
visual elements (such as cos-
tumes, gestures and settings)
woven into pauses and scene
breaks. They are ideal for


mixed-sighted and low-vision
audiences, because the
descriptions do not intrude
on spoken dialog.
The Jacaranda library's
Low Vision/Hearing room
has 98 such films on VHS
.videotape. The tapes may be
checked out, and the follow-
ing films will be shown during
April, May and June in the
library's meeting room (all
showings are at 2 p.m.):
April 16: "Two Weeks
Notice," starring Sandra Bul-
lock and Hugh Grant.
May 21: "The Joy Luck
Club," with Tsai Chin and
Kieu Chinh.

SCORE from page lA


have actively pursued the
Goodyear site longer than
anyone else, securing the
small business loans needed
and sticking with the spot
even after Walgreens stepped
in and made a larger offer.
As far as Brian Willette
knows, Walgreens simply
changed its mind and with-
drew the offer, because the
Willettes couldn't outbid the
corporate giant.
'It gives you hope'
Karen Willette is happy for
her husband of 32 years,


though she admits there is
some fear especially since
she's the one who manages all
of the money while he fixes'
the cars. A larger facility also
means higher taxes and utili-
ties, and now they'll owe a
mortgage payment instead of
rent.
Despite those fears, win-
ning a prime spot on U.S. 41
Business shows that the little
guy who keeps a fresh cup of
coffee going can succeed, she
said.
"It gives you hope," Karen
Willette said. "You think, if


this guy can do it, I can. You
just have to get up and work
for it.
"That cup of coffee ...
that's what's lacking in today's
society. We need more of
that."
Hope is something the
Willettes are holding onto.
They just received word their
youngest son, Jason, is being
deployed in Afghanistan with
the U.S. Army. The 25-year-
old already has served in Iraq.
Karen Willette's eyes teared
up when asked about her son.
"Yeah, it's a little bit tough.


You worry," she said.
New toy
The move down the street
won't be made alone. Several
of their regular employees
have been with the Willettes
since they started their own
shop 10 years ago, and Brian
Willette credits Venice native
Steve Picot for giving him the
idea more than 10 years ago
when theyworked together at
another shop.
Picot is still with the
Willettes, and he's looking for-
ward to no longer working in


the rain.
The current site only has
two automotive bays, while
the new spot will have five for
mechanical work and two or
three for body work.
"It's great. I'm happy for
them," said Picot, who shook
his head "no" while Brian
Willette gave him the credit
for the idea to start their own
shop.
Their lease expires at the
end of April, so Willette Auto-
motive has no choice but to
be relocated to the old Good-
year store by May 1.


The Willettes ran through a
list of people to thank, includ-
ing family, friends, customers
and other businesses that
helped. American Small Busi-
ness Association awarded the
loan, Sunshine Properties
helped negotiate the deal and
People's Community Bank
found the loan, Brian said.
"We've worked hard our
whole lives to get here," said
Karen, smiling as she sees her
husband with the look of a
young boy getting ready to
play with a new toy. "I just
hope this works out."


MYTH frompagelA


Epilepsy is not a disease and
it is not contagious, according
to the WHO. The general term
"epilepsy" includes various
types of seizures character-
ized by sudden, brief changes
in how the brain works. It is a
symptom of a neurological
disorder a disorder that
affects the brain and shows
itself in the form of seizures.
About 2.5 million Amer-
icans suffer from epilepsy. It
affects people of all ages. In 70
--percent of cases, the cause is
unknown. Brain injury due to
accidents is a common pre-


ventable cause among the
other 30 percent of cases.
Not a designer disorder
Epilepsy Services of South-
west Florida, a nonprofit or-
ganization founded in 1967,
provides neurological evalua-
tions, diagnostic testing, blood
level monitoring and assis-
tance in obtaining medica-
tions. It also provides case
management, individual and
group counseling, as well as
employment and vocational
assistance.

"As you can imagine, we
serve a lot of indigents and
poor people," said Tom
Gerrity, executive director.
"We're not a designer dis-
order. But we still have a pro-
gram to administer."
With only 10 full-time em-
ployees, ESSF serves an eight-

ida, including Manatee, Saraso-
ta, Charlotte, Lee, Collier, Henry,
Glades and DeSoto. The main
office is located in Sarasota, with
satellite offices in Bradenton,


Fort Myers and Naples.
In Sarasota County alone,
ESSF handles 230 cases each
year; there are 550 open cases
at any time being served in all
eight counties, said Gerrity.
Prevention
The ESSF program, one of
nine regional organizations
serving the state, was placed
into statute in 1987 and fund-
ed by the Florida Legislature
thereafter.

rity said.
One of the more popular
outreach efforts by ESSF is
the bicycle helmet giveaway.
The program, funded by a
federal grant, takes place in
public schools, sheriffs' of-
fices and bike rodeos for kids.
"With 30 percent of epilepsy
cases due to accidents, preven-
tion is one of the big things we
promote," Gerrity said.
"We also have a vocational
program for kids. We gather
young. people with qpilepsy-
together as a group and train
them in computer skills and


help them finds jobs. Generally
these young people with
epilepsy have lower self esteem
and get ridiculed at school.
Many of them drop out. Most
don't have a GED. We work to
help them attain a GED and
become functioning members
of society," Gerrity said.

every way they could.
But success was coming,
he claimed, as the capture of
top terrorist leaders, particu-
larly in al-Qaida, was leading
to a second tier of leadership
coming to the forefront that
was "not as capable" as past
leaders.
Over the last three years,
Tenet said, CIA agents operat-
ing in the back streets and
alleys of far-off cities world-
wide had uncovered hun-
dreds of plots. And many of
these, he said, followed simi-
lar plot lines, as terrorist
attempted to duplicate what
.had proved successful in the
past.
"History matters to these
people," he said, adding that
they followed a "warped ide-
ology" as they sought their
goal of creating a new state.

has an Arab face, it has an
African face, it has an Asian
face, and it even has an
American face," Tenet said,
adding that the lack of eco-
nomic opportunities and dis-
ease in many Third World
areas left a void, which terror-
ists filled.
But he also said that
democracy was making a
headway in many counties of
the Mideast.
Seams of vulnerability
For the future, Tenet point-
ed to India and China as
looming powers, China in
particular as it seeks to
expand its influence in areas
of the world where it hasn't
before. Tenet cited Latin
America, which recently
signed a $30 billion trade
agreement with the Chinese,
as one example of this.


Under fire recently for the
failures of U.S. intelligence
prior to the start of the Iraq
war, Tenet, who did not dis-
cuss the war in his remarks,
said the CIA is doing more
than it did three years ago.
But, he added, the agency's
capabilities should not be
allowed to decline and'a way
needs to be found so local
police departments could
share data about suspicious
activities for comparison pur-
poses. He said the terrorists
were more aware of U.S. and
state laws and the loopholes
than most Americans.
"I don't want to wake up
one, two or three years from
now in the wake of a second
wave of attacks wondering
why we didn't close these
loopholes," he said. "We need
to close our seams ofvulnera-
bility."..... ..

VHS's Crystal Hess heads for home with the Indians' first run in
Tuesday night's game against Manatee High School.


Throughout the first two
full innings of play the
Manatee Canes were able to
hang in defensively with the
Indians. However, the pitch-
ing early for the Canes
showed weakness, as .their
team faced half the starting
lineup in the top of the sec-
ond inning. In the end this
would wear out the defensive
play of the Canes. In the bot-
tom of the third inning,
Felicia Taylor managed to
swing out a double. And the
next batter, Heather Laird hit
an RBI single to give her team,
the lead 1-0. From here on
out the Indians never gave
tip their lead. Coach Amy
Kanter noted of her teams'
performance, "We played well
defensively, even though we
did not hit quite as well as
we're used to doing."
The Manatee Canes were
able to get their offense going
with a lead off single in the
top of the sixth. Following a
strikeout, the next batter
would walk. Manatee came.
to the plate and knocked out a
double bringing the Canes
within one run. However,
they were unable to carry on
with this momentum. The
strong defense of the Indians
did not allow another run.
Following the game, Man-
atee Coach Kellie O'Dell
stated, "We did not execute."
The strong defense of the
Venice Indians managed to
give their fans a lot to cheer
about.

73-year-old Raynor still tracking success


BY DON HUTCHINS
CORRESPONDENT


The National Senior
Games are upon us.
For those of you who are
not familiar with the Senior
Games, this competition is
open to all seniors ages 50
and older and is dedicated to
promoting healthy lifestyles.
These games begin on the
district level and move all the
way to the national stage.
The Senior Games are able
to function nationwide un-
der the organization of the
National Senior Games As-
sociation (NSGA). The mis-
sion of the NSGA is to pro-
mote healthy lifestyles for
active adults 50 and over
through education, fitness
and sport.
In addition, this associa-
tion "supports and sanctions
member state organizations
so that about 250,000 senior
athletes can participate in
events year-round that will
keep them motivated, health-
ier and in touch with the
senior games movement."
This organization's incep-
tion was in 1985. It success-
fully organized its first Senior
Olympic games in 1987.
With the success of its ini-
tial games, the NSGA has
continued to reach out to
seniors nation-wide offering
an array of summer events
such as basketball, track and

field, racquetball, road rac-
ing, softball, swimming,
bowling, tennis, swimming,
triathlon, volleyball, archery,
badminton, cycling, golf,
horseshoes and table tennis.
The winter games offer
seven events.
These events are further
organized into age groups
set in five-year increments.
Venice's Alan Raynor, who.


is 73 years old, has been an
active participant in the
Senior Games competition
for the past four years. Dur-
ing the span, he has acquired
40 medals and believes he is
on track to gain 100 medals
by his 80th birthday.
Of the aforementioned
events, Raynor specializes in
track and field sprints,
long jump, high jump, hur-


dles, and his best event, the
triple jump.
Raynor has finished near
the top in each of the track
and field events in which he
has participated. Although
he has yet to advance to the
national stage, his achieve-
ments are noteworthy to say
the least.
Raynor's most recent
venue was March 19 at the
National Training Center in
Clermont, where he grabbed
three gold medals the 100
meter dash, the triple jump
and long jump.
He achieved personal
bests in the long jump (12
feet, 6 inches) and triple jump
(26 feet, 10 inches).
While Raynor's mark in the
triple jump is 4 feet better
than the All-American stan-
dard, he remains just one
inch short of the mark for
national recognition in the
long jump.
Prior to his work in Cler-
mont, Raynor 'attended the
state meet at the Villages.
He won a silver medal in the
long jump and a bronze in
the 100 meters.
Raynor's next meet will be
the regional senior games
May 6-7 at the Villages. He
will compete in the 100, 200
and high jump.
Admittedly, Raynor does
not train vigorously for the
summer events nor does he
stick to a strict, regimented

diet.
Rather jocundly he cites
Woody Allen, "Fifty percent
in life is showing up." De-
spite his light-hearted ap-
proach to preparation for
the summer events, Raynor,
admits he is a "product of
'good genes and an active
lifestyle."
Raynor is the father of
three sons and one daughter,
who remain in his native
town of Utica, N.Y. He has
been married to his current
wife for the past 24 years.
Although his kids do not
share his passion for sporting
events, he reveals that they
all have his healthy physical
conditioning.
During his free-time, Allan
dabbles in abstract artistry,
where he creates works of art
out of stone, glass, marble
and metal. Two years ago, he
created a plaque with antique
printing in which he gave to
the city of Venice in honor of
'her' 75th birthday.
Raynor's individual suc-
cess should serve as inspira-
tion for any senior wishing to
enhance his or her physical
wellness. His determination
is not to set records but to
participate "indefinitely sim-
ply because it's there."
This year the finalists of the
State Senior Summer Games
will advance to the national
stage in Pittsburgh, being
held June 3-18.

Baseball is back
all the games on satellite


In a game that went extra
innings Tuesday evening the
Venice Indians boys baseball
team came up a run short of
victory against the Lakewood
Ranch Mustangs 2-1. Of the
teams performance, Coach
Craig Faulkner stated, "We
played well. We really have
nothing to hang our heads
about."
Despite the loss the Indi-
ans managed to play well. As
seen all season long the team
has one poor inning that
allows their opponent to take
the momentum away from
them.
During the game the


Indians received great pitch-
ing from Koehler who has
a devastating fastball. He
pitched nine no-hit innings
against the Mustangs. Joe
Schmehl took the loss as the
game was lost in extra
innings.
The Indians defense has
struggled all season long.
'They have made fundamen-
tal errors which has cost
Venice High wins throughout
the year. Hopefully with the
remaining games on the
Indians schedule, their of-
fense and defense will over-
come their weaknesses and
finish strongly.

3 on 3 soccer invades Venice


Hundreds of players, dozens of teams and
even more parents, fans and curious flocked
to the Garbrandt Soccer Complex this past
Saturday and Sunday for the Sharks Tooth 3
versus 3 Tournament.
Kids of all ages participated in the event.
Teams came from all over the area. Venice was
well represented with teams at every level of
play.
The 3 versus 3 soccer is a speedier version
of its larger cousin. Two short halves are
played. The pitch is much smaller than a nor-
mal size field. Passing, scoring and defense are
at a premium.


Members of the Under 16 Venice Shockers warm up on the sidelines
before taking to the pitch Saturday.

Here's what you need to
know about them.
Who is requiring this
backflow device? The United
States. Department of Envir-

62-555.360. This made it the
responsibility of the local
water providers to enforce
the cross-connection laws.
To meet these responsibilities,
the state of Florida required
the Venice Utilities Depart-
ment to put together a cross-
connection backflow preven-
tion program in 1992. The
Venice Utilities Department
started enforcement with
commercial accounts and has
just recently started enforce-
ment of private residents. All
new construction, both com-
mercial and residential, must
have backflow devices.
What is backflow? There
have been many documented
cases of drinking water being
contaminated or polluted by
both commercial and residen-
tial sources around the world.
Backflow is a water condition
that you want to avoid at any
cost. Simply put, backflow
occurs any time the flow in
your water system reverses.


For example, occasionally a
car will strike a fire hydrant
on a street. Water will gush
out of the hydrant at full water
pressure, causing a huge drop
in water pressure in all build-
ings on the block. With this
drop of pressure the direction
of water flowing through
pipes can actually reverse.
Whenever flow reverses, the
likelihood of drinking water
contamination is possible.
With this in mind, you want
to avoid mixing drinking
water with nonpotable (not
drinkable quality) water. This
is what a backflow valve is
designed to prevent.
What is a cross-connec-
tion? A cross-connection is a
permanent or temporary con-
nection between potable or
drinking water and anything
that can pollute or contami-
nate the water supply. Cross-
connection control is simply a
program that is designed to
take safeguards necessary to
protect Venice's water supply.
Potentially all water services
are affected by possible cross-
connections, including resi-
dences for a number of rea-
sons: water heaters because
of thermal expansion, garden


hoses and irrigation systems.
A cross-connection can be
corrected in several different
ways. One way is to discon-
nect the source of potential
contamination; another is to
install a backflow preventor
that allows water to flow in
only one direction. A back-
flow assembly looks like a
complicated and intimidating
piece of equipment, but is a
simple and very sound way of
eliminating a direct or perma-
nent link to a potential hazard.
What is the purpose of a
backflow prevention valve?
The backflow prevention valve
prevents contamination of the
city's water main. Imagine, for
example, you have a garden
hose in a bucket of soapy
water. The water pressure
supplied to your property
may drop unexpectedly.
When this happens, the water
flow to the water hose in the
bucket of soapy water could
reverse and suck the contents
of the bucket into the city's
water main. When the water
pressure is restored, the soapy
water from the bucket can
contaminate the city's water
main. Every building on your
street could then have soapy


water flowing out of its water
faucets. Obviously, in indus-
try, things could get even
more extreme. Facilities that
process acids, toxic chemicals
or sewage need to prevent a
reversal of water flow at any
cost. This is where a backflow
valve comes in. During a time
of water pressure fluctuation,
the valve will prevent your res-
idence's materials from flow-
ing into the city's water sys-
tem.
How do I knowifI need to
install a backflow valve? All
commercial businesses in
Venice must have a Reduced
Pressure Principle Assembly,
on their drinking water supply
line. All homes in Venice must
have a backflow device and it
must be tested each year by a
certified backflow tester or a
licensed plumber. All homes
will be required 'to have a
Reduced Pressure Principle
-Assembly starting in 2010.
Who can install a back-
flow valve? Only licensed
plumbers can install backflow
assemblies. The Venice Util-
ities Department requires a
licensed plumber to obtain a
permit from the city building
department before work is


started. After the assembly:s
installed, a certified backflco
tester or a licensed plumber
must test its operation and-it
must be approved by a city
inspector. ,
How much does a back-1
flow valve cost? Backflowl
valves range in size from:
three-fourths of an inch:
(homes and small businesses)
to 10 inches (for large facili-
ties). Valve prices vary from;
$300 to more than $30,000,:
according to the size of the'
device.
What maintenance is
required? All backflow valves
must be tested and certified
when installed and at least
once per year thereafter.,
Residential backflow devices,
cost $30-$60 to test. Com-
mercial backflow devices can:'
cost more depending on their
size. Most valves pass inspec-
tion. But if the device fails,'
you have 30 days to have I'ft
repaired or replaced. All newly
installed devices must be test-
ed within three days and the
test results sent to the Venice'
Utilities Department within
five days.
Ray Lieberman is a certi-
fied backflow tester in Venice.

Venice High School Chorus going to the Big Apple


How do you get to Carnegie Hall?
For these students, it's practice -
and car washes and bake sales and ...


BY JEREMY ROTTGEN
STAFF WRITER


The Venice High School
Chorus has harmonized a deal
to perform at Carnegie Hall.
The trip is part of an oppor-
tunity to perform a custom-
tailored composition by Dr.
David L. Brunner, director of
chorale activities at the Uni-
versity of Central Florida,

IF YOU WANT TO HELP
Make a check payable to VHS
Voices & Strings Inc.
Designate your donation to
Carnegie Hall Fund and mail
to Venice High School, 1
Indian Ave., Venice FL 34385.

called "The Painted Book."
The words of the com-
position are from the 15th
century philosopher King
Nezahualcuyotl.
VHS Chorus Director Steve
Johns is excited about this lat-
est opportunity to perform in
New York City on May 29 at 8
p.m.
"Right now our priority is
getting to Carnegie Hall,"
Johns said.
The title of the program the
students will perform is
"Painted Memories." Brunner
wrote the composition in
honor of the VHS chorus
because he liked the way the
students performed.
"I have known Steve Johns
and his family for a number of
years and shared his love of
music and passion for teach-
ing. When he asked me a few
years back to write a piece
for his singers, I was happy to
do so," Dr. Brunner said.
"Writing on commission is
something I do a lot of, but it
is especially gratifying. when I'
know the director and singers.
The interesting aspect of this
program in Carnegie Hall is
that three of the six pieces on
the program were written for
directors and singers who will
actually be in the perfor-
mance."
Brunner said in addition to
"The Painted Book," which
was written for Johns, the
program features "Cantate
Domino," which was written
for Betty Mullet and the
Riverview High School choir,
and "Painted Memories" for
Rob Paugh and his singers in
'Kentucky All of them will be
performing at Carnegie Hall.
A.huge thank-you
Johns said the trip wouldn't
be possible without the boost-
ers group, VHS Voices &
Strings Inc. Pam Groff, secre-
tary and board member of the
group, said the trip is a won-
derful opportunity. The vol-
unteer-based group sends
chorus students to All-State
and organizes events like this
one.
"Students and chaperones
are working hard in our
community, performing and


washing cars to raise the funds
needed," Groff said. "Students
would like to thank their com-
munity for the thoughtful do-
nations they have received."
Students are paying their
own way, but donations for
the trip could help pay for
meals or get the students to a
Broadway show. So far, the
students have had four car
washes at Willette's Auto-
motive.
People with dirty cars who.
weren't able to make it have
still made contributions to
the students. Johns said the
generosity of the Venice com-
munity should not be abused.
That's why the students aren't
going door-to-door selling
things.
"During performances I've
had people just come up and
put money in my pocket for
the students," Johns said. "We
owe a .huge thank-you to
Venice."
Johns said he remembers
going to high school in Venice
and how generous they were
then, too.
Accepted
The VHS chorus is no
stranger ,to performing at
Carnegie Hall. The group went
in 2001 and 200:3. Performing
with the Carnegie Hall orches-
tra is something only a few
people can say they have
experienced.
Johns is very excited for
the kids' opporunitiry He was
a performer with Brunner in
Europe before he became a
teacher. Johns has been the
VHS chorus director for the
past nine years.
Several concerts are held
every year by the group, in-
cluding the Yuletide Madrigal
Feaste in December that is
\set during, the Renaissan.ce,
putting students in appropri-
ate garments and the whole
performance inside a castle
that parents of the chorus
students made.
VHS performs frequently
for free to give back to the
community. The dinner is just
another way for the students
to showcase their talents and
share with the community.
"It gives the parents an
opportunity to be involved,"
he said. "It's a close-knit
group."
The chorus is composed of
more than 80 students from
all walks of life. According to
Johns, it's a really eclectic
group because whoever they
are, they're accepted in the
chorus room. ,
Hear them here
The VHS chorus room is a
busy place. Students line up
outside of the door at 6:45
a.m. when Johns is there to
unlock the door. Johns also
has to' clear them 'out when
school is over.
Excitement for the group
will increase when a new
facility is completed for the
2006-2007 school year. The


VENICE AREA BRIEFS


Oldest house donations
The oldest house inVenice,
known as the Joseph Lord
house, is now located at 811
LaGuna Drive.
However, it will soon be
moved to a lot on Granada
Avenue, across the street from
Venice City Hall. There, it will
be restored and preserved as
an example of how the first
settlers in the area lived.
The Venice Historical
Commission is steering the
fund raising to accomplish
the move and'restoration.
, Tax deductible donations
to help move and restore the
oldest house in Venice can
be sent to Gulf Coast Com-
munity Foundation. of Ven-
ice, Attention Suzanne
Tudor, 601 South Tamiami
Trail, Venice, 34285. Checks
should be made to GCCFV
with Lord House Historic
Preservation Fund in the


memo line.
Early estimates have total
costs on relocation and
restoration of the 1896 home
as high as $1 million.
The home's new owners'
offered the house, at 811
LaGuna Drive, to the city
because they planned to de-
molish it and build a new
house.
Venice Area Historical
Society is planning a tour of
historic homes a year from
now, April 2006, as a fund-
raiser for the restoration
project, and the new owners
have verbally committed to
donate costs they could've
spent to demolish the house.
Anyone wishing to donate
time, talent or period furnish-
ings to the project should
contact Janis Fawn at 228-
9509.
- Compiled from staff reports


new building will house cho-
rus and band, while the origi-
nal building will house orch-
estra and theater.
Some of the students will
be going on the trip just days
after their graduation. Several
of those students will most
likely go to UCF to study
under Brunner.
The chorus performs for
large crowds already, but
Johns would like even more
people to come to the con-
certs.
"It's Thore fun to perform for
a full auditorium," he said. "We
just want people to say, Aren't
these kids wonderful?'"
Upcoming performances
include the Spring Concert on
May 5. They will also perform
at the VHS graduation com-
mencement on May 20.

Your blood donation can help others see red


n his is a call for blood. Some people need
S it and other people have it.
If you're able to give whole blood or
platelets, Florida's Blood Centers is looking
for you.
FBC needs all types, but the most critical is
0 positive and 0 negative.Why now? Because
there have been fewer donors, coupled with
an increase in tourists.
FBC supplies blood to 70 hospitals and med-
ical centers, includingVenice Regional Medical
Center and Englewood Community Hospital.
Every three seconds, someone requires a
unit of blood. Accident victims use from four to
more than 100 units. Up to 10 donors are need-
ed for one transfusion of platelets for cancer
patients who need one or two transfusions per


week
Open-heart surgery requires an average of
six units of red blood cells. Bum victims can
use 20 units of platelets during treatment.
To donate blood, you must be at least 17
years old, in good health and weigh at least
110 pounds. If you offer your blood at a cen-
ter, you'll be given a mini-physical to evaluate
your blood pressure, iron level and choles-
terol. Center personnel say that the entire
procedure, including resting afterward, will
take no longer than an hour.
.Whole blood can be donated every 56
days; platelets up to 24 times a year; plasma
up to 12 times annually.
Once you donate, your blood, platelets or
plasma will probably be in someone else's


bloodstream within three days. Red blood
cells have a shelf life of only 42 days; platelets
only five days.
There are four blood types. Thirty-seven
percent of the population is 0 positive, 36
percent is A positive, 8 percent is B positive, 3
percent is AB positive. The rest, in smaller
percentages, are A negative (6 percent), B
negative (2 percent), AB negative (1 percent)
and 0 negative.
After you donate your blood, it will be
taken to a lab, first to determine its type, and
then to undergo 18 hours of testing for,
among other things, HIV West Nile, Hepatitis
B and C and syphilis.
The blood is then separated to extract the
red cells, platelets and plasma. The compo-


nents are labeled, packed and sent via couri-
er to a hospital.
The center in Venice in the Galleria Plaza
at 2065 South Tamiami Trail is open from 8
a.m. to 4 p.m., Wednesdays and Friday, and
from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Thursdays. It is closed
Monday and Tuesdays.
The center in Englewood's Heron Plaza at
2670 South McCall Road, is open from 8 a.m.
to 4 p.m. on'Mondays and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
on Tuesday. It is closed Wednesdays,
Thursday and Fridays.
The Bloodmobile is somewhere in Sara-
sota County or Charlotte County almost
every day. To get the schedule, go to floridas
bloodcenters.org.
Your donation can make the difference.


Let all citizens


appeal exceptions


ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST

EDITOR'S NOTE: Ed Martin had
to be out of the city on April 12.
This is the statement he sent to the
mayor and council about the right
of a citizen to appeal height excep-
tions. Council's action is reported
on Page 1.
Dear Mr. Mayor and Mem-
bers of Council:
I regret that my duties as a
corporate board member re-
quire me to be in New York so
that Icannot appear before
you in person. I hope this pro-
cedure will allow my thoughts
to be considered.
I thinkthere are several con-
ditions that weigh in favor of
your allowing Herb Levine to
have "standing" to appeal.
Lack of clear process
There was considerable
confusion in city hall about
the process of appealing since
this was the first appeal under
the de novo hearing process.
I was in the city clerk's of-
fice researching the question
of appeals when, coinciden-
tally, Mr. Levine and council
member John Moore also
entered. We heard the infor-
mation about the $300 fee
from the city clerk and all ex-
pressed some surprise. Al-
though the matter had been
discussed almost two years
earlier and approved by
council at a later time on staff
recommendation, it had not
been employed and so was
not familiar. :
Several people had ex-
pressed an interest in appeal-
ing and several more ex-
pressed an interest in helping
Mr. Levine with the fee. I was
one, motivated by the burden
of the fee on an individual
and feeling the process was
intended by city council to
provide an opportunity for
citizens, to be heard on height
exceptions. One citizen re-
ported being told by the
director of the planning office
that each person wanting to
be heard would have to pay
an additional $300.
I contacted the city man-
ager to inquire and was told
that he had met with the clerk
and as they reviewed this new
process, that such payments
did not appear necessary for a
group because at a public
meeting individuals would be
allowed to speak in the usual
five-minute periods.
At no time in conversa-
tions with the clerk or city
manager was the subject of
standing ever mentioned, al-
though that may have been
stated in writing elsewhere.


Testimony of
Peter McDonald
Testimony opposing the
height exception was given by
Peter McDonald at the hear-
ing. Mr. McDonald, unfortu-
nately, became gravely ill at
about that time and since has
been unable to participate in
public activities.
Mr. McDonald's testimony
should have been relevant to
the commission. He is an
attorney by training and for
many years served various
municipalities as head of the
zoning and planning agen-
cies. Here in Venice he has
spoken on growth and devel-
opment to the council and
the planning commission
and-has served on the recent
commission advising'on sal-
aries for council members.
Mr. McDonald indicated he
would have pursued this ap-
peal had his health allowed.
In his absence, Herb Levine
and others agreed to appeal.
Information was
partially incorrect
The presentation by city
staff to the commission refers
to the block as predominantly
two stories. I have observed
the block, photographed it.
and written on this subject in
my column in the Venice
Gondolier Sun. The block is,
in fact, predominantly one-
story, making the four-story
building even less compatible
with its neighbors than the
commission may have real-
ized. This error in fact mars
the decision as made.
My experience
in choosing Venice
My wife and I had visited
many communities along the
east and west coasts of the
United .States before selecting
Venice. Having explored the
Sarasota area and liking the
cultural facilities, we searched
for the first nearby conmmuni-
ty directly on the gulf and
foundVenice.
As we drove down WestVen-
ice Avenue, we were charmed
by the town; continued on
down the beautiful landscaped
avenue and stayed at the inn
on the comer while we went
house-hunting. I remember
saying to her, "This is a perfect
downtown: no McDonalds and
no Benettons."
In the next few days we
bought our home, in 1993.
I cannot tell you how many
people have told me the im-
pact of the low-scale, "small-
. town" look of the shopping
area played an important role
in their choosing Venice. I am
sure you have heard similar
comments. In fact, similar
concepts have been express-
ed at virtually every Envision
Venice meeting, as I am sure
staff has reported to you.
Ultimate responsibility

Council and the mayor
have demonstrated an inter-

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Wlistle-blower is role model


Editor:
Your editorial was well written and accurately told the facts
of Andrew Eller's case in a clear and concise manner. However,
there is much more at stake in this case than the Florida pan-
ther or how Florida gets developed.
Saving panther habitat in South Florida will not only save
'the Florida panther, it will save more than 68 other species that
will be protected under the same umbrella as the panther.
Also at stake is scientific integrity.
Wildlife management is defined as using the best available
science to balance the needs of wildlife with the needs of peo-
ple. The USFWS blatantly used bad science to get around the
law, and then fired a worker who was trying to do his job using
ethical conduct.
At a time when ethics and high moral standards are becom-
ing a rare commodity in business and government, Andrew
Eller has become a symbol of hope for young people. My stu-'
dents view him as both a role model and a hero.
Venice High School students have written letters to sena-
tors, congressmen and the governor in support of Andrew
Eller. They have signed PEER'S online petition supporting
Andrew.,
They have also written letters of encouragement to him let-
ting him know what his courageous action has meant to them.
It gives young people hope that there are adults with ethics and
high moral standards who are willing to step up for what is
right even if it means great personal sacrifice.

Time to wean
us off of oil
Editor:
Wake up, America. It's way
past time to develop alterna-
tive energy.
Solar: It's here and avail-
able and needs to be required
on new construction to heat
water. The sun can also create
electricity. Offer interest-free
loans to .install in existing
homes.
Hydrogen: It's here but
not available. We need to start
somewhere. Let's start with
city, county and federal gov-
ernments. These entities have
many vehicles that drive in a
restrictive area and can be
refueled at local fuel depots.
, Work with GM and Ford to
develop and supply these
vehicles. This would create
jobs and would create a base


for expanding into the private
sector.
Let's get moving. Put an
additional tax on gas and use
the income only to develop
alternative fuels. This country
needs to be less dependent
on oil.

LET 'EM HAVE IT! WHAT DOES VENICE NEED TO GET VHS
GRADUATES WHO GO AWAY TO COLLEGE TO RETURN? CALL 207-1111.


Messy neighbors? Call 861-3280


Got their number. After years of living in Venice, I've stum-
bled on a county phone number for the code enforcement offi-
cer for the Venice area and it seems like they really do a very
nice job. By using this phone number and candidly reporting
properties that were really run down and neglected or trashy,
they were able to clean up my street really nicely without mak-
ing it look like a deed-restricted area. That's something I don't
want. I thought I'd share it with you: 861-3280. It's anonymous,
so you don't have to worry about anybody coming back on you
for reporting garbage, or a neglected lawn or abandoned cars.
It really works; you should give it a try.


Just not Sunday. I believe if
you had chosen any day but
Sunday for your three-day-a-
week paper, there would be no
complaints. I enjoy the three
days a week, but not Sunday.
Too dry. The monument in

T.J. Camey's used to have water
fountains on both ends of it. It
would be nice to see water
fountains put back on so there's
water available to the people
walking Venice Avenue. Also,
the parade that was put on by
T.J. Camey's was great. The only
complaint was the grand mar-

monds had written an article
recently about the finance
director. If he's not happy the
way the city's being run, maybe
he should go back to his origi-
nal hometown. The final thing
is, I noticed the allegations
against Mr. Randall. Those all
happened during Mayor
Dean Calamaras' watch; may-
be it's time for Dean, to step

Tribune. I take the Herald-
Tribune to have comprehen-
sive coverage of world news.
For the last seven years I have
taken your paper for local
news. Twice a week was plen-
ty; once a week would have,
been even better. Three times
a week is way too much. I will
now allow my annual sub-
scription to run out. I think
the three papers comprise
pretty much the same thing

the two papers used to; you
just get them divided up into
three newspapers and that's
going overboard.
Foreign affair.Yes, the Amer-.
ican car companies do use for-
eign parts for cost-effectiveness
or whatever the reason, but
when you buy an American car,
the profit is going to an Amer-
ican company based in Amer-
ica. When you buy a foreign car,
the profits are going to a foreign
country, no matter whose parts
are in it, even though those cars
are final-assembled in Amer-,
ica. Buying a car that's a foreign
car is basically America sub-
contracting to the foreign
country. Yes, everybody has
Chinese watches or radios
made in Taiwan, but.radios or
watches are not the backbone
of the American economy,
whereas the car industry is.
That's the big difference. The
American car industry is losing
and dihe foreign car companies
are winning, and that's the bot-
tom line. I believe people who
buy a foreign car really need to
stop and wonder where their
children are going to work.
They should be scared to death
about what's going to happen.
W hat's the problem? These
people who are complaining
about dihe Gondolier Sun three
times a week,' that they don't
have time to read it, what is
their problem? I bet they're
the same ones that knew
about the airport and com-
plain about it the most.A


MARTIN from page 13A
est in opening your delibera-
tions to public involvement.
You have indicated your in-
terest in deciding important
issues, such as height excep-
tions, rather than delegating
them to a worthy, but un-
elected, commission.
It seems to me that the
fundamental good in this
issue is for council to hear this
case on its merits. That is con-
sistent with your adoption of
the de novo process and it is
consistent with your stated
intention to hear all such
height exceptions in the fu-
ture when new ordinances
are adopted.
I feel I have standing, as


does each citizen, when a
dramatic change in the criti-
cal downtown area is being
considered. Our quality of life
and perhaps financial good
will be affected.
While not a legal prece-
dent, approving a four-story
building will more than dou-
ble the height of the other
buildings on that block. I have
been advised by expert land-
use counsel that he, among
others, would use this excep-
tion to argue their case for
similar buildings.-
: In this regard, the support
of neighboring building own-
ers should be understood in
terms of the implications for
greater financial gain for
them.


I think you understand
that in this grey area of new
process, the spirit of the law is
what should move you, not a
narrow, legalistic attempt to
avoid the review by elected
city officials.
Thank you.

Song honors
black Republican
Editor:
Every time the NAACP
sings its national anthem,
"Lift Every Voice and Sing," it
honors a black Republican,
James Weldon Johnson (1871-
1938).
This inspirational song,
which was also adopted in
the 1940s by millioris of black
Americans as the Negro Na-
tional Anthem, was written in
1900 by Johnson in collabora-
tion with.his talented musi-
cian brother, John Rosamond
Johnson, ,to commemorate
President Abraham Lincoln's
birthday.
Johnson, from Jacksonvil-
le, Fla., became the NAACP's
field secretary in 1916 and
general secretary in 192q, the
first black man to hold that
office. He fought for the pas-
sage of anti-lynching legisla-
tion and helped stop the
Democratic Party from deny-


ing blacks the right to partici-:
pate in the South's primary
elections.
After Johnson moved to
NewYork in 1902 and became
active in the Colored Repub-
lican Club of New York, he
was appointed to the posts of
United States consul in Puer-
to Cabello, Venezuela, and:
then Corinto, Nicaragua, by
Republican President Theo-
dore Roosevelt.
In 1914, after Democrat.
President Woodrow Wilson
from Virginia was elected,
Johnson resigned from the
U.S. Consular Service be-
cause he believed that there
would be little opportunities
for black Americans in Wil-
son's administration. Wdlson
subsequently dismissed all
black American federal offi-
cials. During Wilson's presi-
dency, :the Democrat-con-
trolled Congress introduced
the greatest number of bills
proposing racial segregation
and discrimination than had
ever been introduced before.

DENTAL ANALGESICS
igesics; are medicines that relieve pain 1without entirely depressing
entral nervous system. The most popular analgesics are aspirin
and acetammophen. These are often combined with other analgesics
such as phenacetin and caffeine to enhance the result. L Aspirin is
usual ly the first choice for dental pain. It is inexpensive, non-addictive,
and generally well'tplerated. Aspirin, should always be swallowed to
relieve pain, never r 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 Put serious illness, children
recovering from chicken pox or flu should not be given aspirin.
Alternative products such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen have
qualities like asp i irin and may be tolerated betten' As with aspirin, long
lbuprofen use can cause ulcers and prolonged bleeding.

Children being taught to say 'no'


BY ELAINEALLEN-EMRICH
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR


When third-graders watch-
ed a little boy tickled too
much by his own uncle, they
yelled "eeeeww."
Students at Emma E.
Booker Elementary School in
Sarasota watched as the same
little boy kept the tickling inci-
dent to himself because his
dad was too busy to talk to
him.
Melissa Barnes, prevention
educator for the Child Pro-
tection Center in Sarasota,
spoke to children about how
the young shy boy solved his
dilemma by talking to his
mother.
When invited, Barnes
teaches the Personal Safety
Education Program for Chil-
dren at schools in Sarasota
County. The course is de-
signed for all students.
For third-graders, she ex-
plained that sometimes
grown-ups become "mixed-
up" and don't make good de-
cisions about touching chil-
dren. She stressed that this
rule applies for everyone, not
just strangers. She said if a
family member touches a
child inappropriately, he or
she should tell an adult. "
"If that adult doesn't listen,
tell another one," she said. "If
a person tells you to keep it a
secret or they will harm you,
tell someone you trust."
One of the children in the
class shared a story about
how his cousin was allegedly
followed by a stranger. He said
his cousin ran back to the
school campus yelling for an
adult.
The Child Protection Cen-
ter's program helps reassure
children that they can tell
someone whenever they have
a safety problem.
The program also empha-
sizes children should develop!
an appropriate vocabulary for
their body parts.
"Children who have learn-
ed only slang or family terms
might be too embarrassed to
ask for help or could have a
difficult time expressing
him/herself clearly," she said.

Motorcyclist dies in crash
A Nokomis motorcyclist
died and his wife was serious-
ly injured in a motorcycle
crash Sunday when a truck
turned in front of them and
the driver then fled.
"We are still actively
searching for the driver,"
Florida Highway Patrol Lt.
Douglas Dobson said.
Dead is Barry S..Patterson,
43, 306 Palmetto Road, No-
komis. His wife, Vikki, 43, a
passenger on the motorcycle,
was flown to Bayfront Med-
ical Center by helicopter.
Her condition was listed as
stable.
Dobson said that with the
help of witnesses, police were
able to locate the abandoned
truck in a wooded area not far
from the accident scene.
"We are obtaining evi-
dence from that vehicle in
hopes of learning who the
driver was," Dobson said.
The accident happened on
State Road 64 (Bradenton,
Exit 220) in Manatee County
near Bear Bay Road, at 6:40
p.m., April 10.

Carly Brownfield was high
on drugs when she was ar-
rested last week on drug
charges, according to the
police report.
"The arresting officer must
have known from her appear-
ance and the way she be-
haved that she was under the
influence of drugs," Sarasota
County Sheriff's Sgt. Chuck
Lesaltato said.
Lesaltato said he did not
know what kind of drug Carly
had taken.
Brownfield, an 18-year old
Venice High School senior
and star athlete, was arrested
at 11 a.m., April 5. She was
charged with possession of a
controlled substance (Oxyco-
done), possession of marijua-
na 'less than 20 grams and
possession of a weapon (a
knife found in her car) on
school property.
Overlooked when the ar-.
rest report was first obtained,


a little box marked "Influence
of drugs" was checked "Yes."
The box to indicate wheth-
er Brownfield was under the
influence of alcohol was
checked "Unknown."
The controlled substance
and weapons charges are
felony charges.
Appearance
Brownfield was released
on a $2,120 bond from the
South County Jail at the
Venice Police Department at
7:28 p.m., eight hours after
her arrest.
Brownfield was expelled
from school immediately fol-
lowing her arrest.
She was captain of the
swim team, and played first
base on the softball team. She
was one of the team's leading
hitters.
Brownfield is scheduled
for arraignment at 9 a.m.,
May 13 in front of Sarasota
County Circuit Court Judge
Charlie Roberts.
According to court records,


Brownfield has filed an affi-
davit for indigency, which
was approved.
An affidavit for indigency
means the person cannot
afford private counsel and
will be represented by a
court-appointed attorney or a
public defender.
Lesaltato said when some-
one who is under the influ-
ence of drugs is arrested, it
does not necessarily mean he
or she is taken to a hospital.
"No, they take them to jail
and just monitor them close-
ly," Lesaltato said. "If they are
transported to the main jail
(Sarasota), then they would
probably go to the medical
unit."

"I Do, I Do" is continuing
on the main stage at the
Venice Little Theatre through
April 24. Starring Diane and
Steve Dawson, it is nothing
short of fabulous. My review
is in today's Let's Go section of
the nice Gondolier Sun.
When it opened on
Broadway in the 1960s with
Mary Martin and Robert
Preston as its two performers,
it became the Broadway
musical with the smallest
cast, wearing those two out in
little more than six months.
Most of the most famous cou-
ples on Broadway eventually
performed in the rigorous
show but I cannot imagine
any of them turning in a per-
formance as fine as that of the
Dawsons. Married to each
other offstage, their love for
each other carries over onto
the stage, adding so much to-
the show.
The VIT is at 140 W Tampa
Ave., where tickets may be
purchased at the box office or
by phone at 488-1115.

Sgt. Paul

Gailey, a

Corsairs crew

chief, kept

World War II

planes in

'battle over

Okinawas

BY PAUL J. GALLEY *
SPECIAL TO THE SUN


P


aul Gailey
of Burnt
Store
Marina was


a crew chief in
Marine Air Group
31, Squadron VMF-
441 during the
Battle of Okinawa,
the last major island
battle in the Pacific
in World War II. As a
sergeant it was his
job to keep his *
squadron of F4U
Corsair fighters air-
borne.
r, This is Gailey's story writ-
ten in his own words:
"Prior to the actual inva-
sion of the big island of
Okinawa on Easier Sunday
morniii-gpriTl-.945.sever-
al small, rugged tactical
islands were stormed and
attacked and secured. These
islands, called the Keramas,
cost the lives of 531 laps and
121 captured at a cost of 31 of
our soldiers killed and 81
wounded.
"The islands were a god-
send. They furnished a naval
base throughout the Okinawa
campaign, a seaplane an-
chorage, a place to rearm and
refuel ships as well as a fix-it
shop for ships that had been
hit bykamikazes,.,
"Seven days before we
were'to arriveat Okinawa, the
big guns of Admiral Blandy's'
Task Force 52 and the plans of
Admiral litscher's 58th Task
Force pounded ,the island.
During this week 13,000 tons'

of shells were blasted into
Okinawa.
"The island was ham-
mered again by planes from
the fast carriers and escort
carriers. Those. squadrons
flew a total of 3,095 sorties
over this area delivering .50-
caliber slugs, rockets and
bombs.
"Then it was our turn to go
ashore. It was the 7th of April
and the crew was nervous
and so was everybody on
board. The kamikazes had
already wiped out several
ships including two escort
carriers.

"We were awakened at
0430 hours (4:30 a.m.) when
all the lights in our compart-
ment came on with our sec-

. "The bitching.,grousing
and mumbling began imme-
diately. Our LST (Landing
Ship Tank) was anchored
among a group of ship about
1,000 yards off the beach at
Okinawa. When we came top-
side and fell into the chow
line it was still dark.
"Something very odd was
not happening. We were on
the seventh day of a major
invasion on a cool, damp,
overcast day and there was
not one sound of battle. There
was no gunfire, no sound of
weapons of any kinds. It was
eerie.
"Someone in line said he
heard one of the crewmen say
the troops who went in on the
first wave never fired a shot
and met very little or no resis-
tance whatsoever. If this was
an invasion, it had to be the
quietest one on record.
"In addition to our steel
helmet, cartridge belt with
bayonet, canteen and first-
aid kit, each of us was loaded

with a full pack, bedroll, pon-
cho, M-1 rifle and two ban-
doleers holding 20 clips of
.30-caliber ammo. We were
going to have to board the
landing craft using rope
boarding ladders which none


of us had ever used.
"When using the rope lad-
der to board the secret was to
never, ever place your hands
on the horizontal rope rungs,
but to use only the vertical
strands for holding on. It did-
n't take long for one of our
guys to have both of his
hands stepped on while
hanging onto the horizontal
rungs. He dropped like a can-
nonball into the water, just
missing the landing craft by a
whisker. He went straight to
the bottom.
"A staff sergeant by the
name of Stone quickly doffed
his gear and dove into the
water to find him. In a matter
of seconds 'Stoney' had him
up sputtering, minus all his
gear. Four or five guys
grabbed hold of him and
hauled him aboard. 'Stoney'
earned a medal for that ven-
ture.

Island Village Montessori gets grant


BY KIM ELDER
SCHOOL CORRESPONDENT


Island Village Montessori
School has recently been
awarded a charter school dis-
semination grant by the
Florida Department of
Education to fund the devel-
opment of an online library of
Montessori lessons. In con-
junction with NOVA South-
eastern University, we are
developing this critically
important resource for Mon-
tessori teachers.
Expanding the online lib-
rary, the grant will fund the
development of a school
based student management
system for public Montessori
Schools that will align the


Montessori scope and se-
quence to grade level State
standards This program is
designed to help teachers
retain the important flexibili-
ty that is fundamental to our,
way of teaching, but simulta-
neously, allow teachers to
track a student's academic
progress over the length of
time a student is in our
school: from kindergarten
through eighth grade.
Island Village Montessori
has successfully applied to
the Sarasota County School
Board for two new charter
programs. We expect to have
the final contracts approved
this month. Island Village
Middle School is designed as
a feeder school for our ele-


mentary program, but will
accept new students as there
is space available.
Beginning in the 2005-
2006 school year, the middle
school program will offer a
technology-driven curricu-
lum for middle school stu-
dents that will share our 8-
acre campus on Pinebrook
Road in Venice. Students will
work on a computer-based
curriculum, which is aligned
with the Sunshine State
Standards for middle school,
but allows flexibility and indi-
vidualized pacing that is con-,
sistent with our Montessori
philosophy. .In addition, our
staff will be trained to use
Montessori lessons that are
appropriate for the upper ele-


mentary/middle school level
to provide important hands-
on practice.
In addition to core subjects
being offered using this
multi-sensory approach, Isl-
and Village Middle School
students will have opportuni-
ties to -design and manage
web sites, learn important
skills such as using spread
sheets, managing databases,
experimenting with simple
CAD type software, and
learning to work with video
and photo editing software.
Our students will graduate
from the middle school pro-
gram doing well on the FCAT
and readyfor the 21st century
workforce. .
In the north county, IVMS


has expanded to a second
preschool location at the
Unitarian Church on Fruit-
ville Road. Beginning next
fall, we will accept kinder-
garten and first grade stu-
dents, eventually, establish-
ing a full elementary program
in north Sarasota County.
Our preschool partnership
with Children First will be
expanding to accommodate
the new Voluntary Pre-K pro-
gram just established by the
State of Florida. Although
there is still much to work
out, the latest information
indicates that all children
who turn four by Sept. 1 will
be eligible for approximately
a $2,500 scholarship. We are
thrilled to participate in this


program because it will help
many families be able to
afford quality programs for
their preschool children.
Our existing elementary
school is preparing for expan-
sion as well. We have settled
our differences with the
builder of our-original school
building. With the settlement;
we have hired a firm that is in
the process of renovating the
building for use as a school
once more. We plan to use
this building to house our
middle school as well as open
fotu more elementary class-
rooms for next year.

Playwright winners announced


STAFF REPORT


Young writers have receiv-
ed the news that they are win-
ners as Florida Studio Theatre
announced this year's Young
Playwright's Festival hon-
orees.
From the hilarious "My
Teacher Thinks She's Elvis," to
the poignant "Three Girls
That Find the Courage," "each
winning entry provides a
unique perspective on life
from the vantage point of
young people," says Kate
Alexander, Associate Director
of FST. "They see what we


don't see, hear what we can't
hear anymore and feel what
we've forgotten as adults. To
quote eminent thinker, Alice
Miller, 'The child comes from
a world we once deeply knew,
but have long since forgot-
.ten.'"
The tiny plays, from one
minute to ten minutes in
length, include winners from
Florida and as far way as
Illinois, Scotland and Russia.
On May 7, winners will be
treated to a production of
their winning plays in a spe-
cial day dedicated in their
honor.


Each year FST receives
thousands of play submis-
sions for its festival. The best
of these are selected for nom-
ination in Under Six, an
anthology of plays written by
children in grades six and
under. Performed by profes-
sional actors, Under Six,

SOUTH NEWS


Tricks of the monastic trade


BROTHER CRAIG
COLUMNIST,


I am very much in favor of
helpful hints. I grew up with a
mother who read Heloise. By
that I mean my mother read
the present Heloise's mother.
That Heloise. She also read
Amy Vanderbilt, both her
writings on etiquette and her
cookbook.
Anyway, helpful hints can
be helpful. (Now that's pro-
found.)
I once read that you could
make an earache go away by
holding a blow dryer near the
ear, and the hot air does the
trick. I told this to someone
who had an earache. She tried,
it and it worked instantly. (I'm
making no medical claims.)
But boy, did I feel helpful!
The thing is that recently
someone gave me a little
booklet of "Helpful Hints for
Housework" compiled from
numerous sources. As a man
it has been scientifically
proven I suffer fromL.H.G.C.
That is the Lack of House
Cleaning Gene. So I was eager


to see what the booklet had to
offer.
At first I wasn't too impres-
sed to learn that acetate fab-
rics should be washed with
care (the fibers become weak-
er when wet and ironing
could melt them!) as I don't
know what acetate fabrics
are. I skipped the section on
cleaning chandeliers but'did
catch the phrase "holding the
large bucket of water over
your head."
But what I was glad to
learn was that a blow dryer
(again) was helpful in remov-
ing bumper stickers. Also,
that distilled white vinegar
removes jam stains. (I often
read during breakfast and
found that my grape jelly
doesn't even try to help itself
remain on the toast.)
I thought the first sentence
under the category "'paints
stains" extremely profound:
"act fast."
Over the years I've painted
many rooms. I would liberally
cover the floor with newspa-
pers (a long process as I
would be there on the floor
reading bits of various arti-
cles) but I would spill a lot of
paint. (Not all of which land-
ed on the newspaper.)
I then realized I was paint-
ing too fast. I was trying to
"get the job done." But -the
clean-up took so long that,
when I switched to painting
slowly the job took less time.
And less turpentine. (Yes,
there probably is a new word
for it.)
I was very happy to learn


that lemon juice removes rust
from clothing. It is recom-
mended to put the lemon
juice on the rust then cover
with salt. Let dry for an hour,
preferably in the sun. Rinse,
then launder. (I got that word
from the booklet. I've never
used it before. I, silly me, not
even knowing the correct
housework terms, would
have used the word "wash.")
I didn't bother to read
"Cleaning velvet lapels on a
tux" but did read that yes,
Heloise (both of them) is
right. Use vinegar in water to
clean windows. I find news-
paper to wipe works well.
But, of course, I would
never use the Gondolier Sun!

tacted through his Com-
munity's Web site at

Yes, this is the price of cin-

Any person brave enough to
tolerate running through
molasses has the physical
senses overwhelmed sight,
smell and touch as I was
reminded of during my

Missing sand
Perhaps the most startling
aspect of Sunday's run was
being reminded of what
beach erosion is and does. My
running shoes hugged the
water line to my right, while
to the left there was at least a
four foot drop-off from sand
being washed away into the
Gulf of Mexico.
In many spots, only vegeta-
tion had held the sand in place.
On at least two occasions there,
was no beach to run on, so my
choices were to run through
sea oats or climb over oversized
stormwater pipes.
Beach renourishment is a
hot' political topic. I was
reminded Sunday morning

the debate shouldn't be about
whether or not beach erosion
is happening, because any-,
one who's been to the beach
can clearly see the environ-
mental impact.
The real discussion should
be on the best way to handle
this problem and who should
pay for it.
Drifting toward nature
Venice Beach to the fishing
pier is about 2.5 miles, but
that's only a guess based on
my running pace. Sun-
bathers, fishers and shell
hunters all are intermixed.
A runner finds one of the
only spots where dogs can
run free on the beach at the
three-mile mark. Owners
catch some-sun as Fido does
the same on a beach blanket,


8:30-10 a.m. and 6:30-8 p.m.

while other pooches dive into
the salt water to fetch tennis
balls and sticks.
From there on out, the
beach run tifrns into being
one with nature. This last mile
only included a handful of
die-hard' shark's tooth
hunters, a few folks fishing
and plenty of birds in search
of breakfast.
Just past the overturned
boardwalk, I crossed back
onto solid ground and fol-
lowed Harbor Drive north on
my return to civilization. The
switch from sand to pave-
ment was like dropping 10
pounds from a weight
machine while doing leg curls

where I turned off. On
Sunday, however, my leg
muscles screamed for relief.
Besides, by the look of
things, nature was in charge
of that last stretch relatively
untouched by humans. You
know what that means -
snakes and. rabid raccoons,
two things that make me
scream like a little girl.
That's all a bit much for
someone like me who's spent
a week worrying and trying to
catch two of those little lizard
things that have gotten into
my apartment.
I wonder if they're staring
at me while I sleep.

Q 1 Vulnerable, you hold:

4Q9873 A J65 OA1086 4Void


Your right-hand opponent opens the
bidding with one club in third seat.
What action do you take?

A You're perfectly placed for a
S* takeout double support for all
three unbid suits, two defensive
tricks and a measure of safety
*. because your left-hand opponent is a
passed hand. If you simply overcall,,
you could risk missing a superior
Contract in one of the other suits.

Q 2 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

4*J64 K654 QAQ92 & Q 10

The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
1 2* ?


S O


* o


What action do you take?.

A These days, a jump raise in com-
petition is pre-emptive, so three
hearts is ruled out. Despite the
doubtful value of the queen of clubs,
your hand is worth a limit raise in ,
support of hearts, so make acue-bid
of three clubs. If partner can do no
better than bid three hearts, pass.

Q 3 Neither vulnerable, you hold:

4KQ1075 Q8 OAQ1072 *A

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

A First, this hand does not meet
either criterion for a jump shift no
self-sufficient suit, no fit for partner.
Had you held two four-card suits, you
would bid the cheaper suit first. With
five-card suits, however, start with the
higher-ranking first. Bid one spade.

Q 4 As South, vulnerable, you hold:


4.10 72 Q8 QJ97543 A

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

What do you bid now?

A There are two ways to treat this
hand: bid one no trump and then bid
diamonds next; or bid two diamonds
and' rebid three diamonds. Since the
latter suggests a slightly better hand,
it is our preferred method. Bid two
diamonds.

Q 5 Both vulnerable, you hold:

46KJ102
Partner opens the bidding with one
spade. What do you respond?

A Use whatever means you have to
show an invitational raise of part-
ner's suit, be it an immediate jump
to three spades or a, bid of two dia-
monds to be followed by a spade
raise. The hand is a whisker short of
a forcing rise.

Q 6 Both vulnerable, you hold:

61065 v763 oAK73 *,AQ5


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
Pass Pass 10
146 Pass ?


WEST
Pass


What action do you take?

A You have a square hand (4-3-3-
3) without a high honor in partner's
suit. We cannot imagine your taking
enough tricks for game opposite a
passed hand that could make no bet-
ter try than a simple response. Pass.

Spring signals litter season


GRACE JOYCE
PET COLUMNIST


Each spring, as the weath-
er warms, the flowers bloom,
and the cycle of the seasons
signal a new beginning we
in the animal world see a
tremendous increase in the
number of homeless and
abandoned animals in our
community.
Spring signals the start of
"litter season" when home-
less and abandoned animals
breed and produce offspring.
This puts a terrible strain on
the already crowded shelters
within our community.
It is estimated that 40,000-
50,000 feral (wild) cats live in
Sarasota County. When ani-
mals have not been spayed or
neutered they are free to
breed, making the problem
that much harder to solve.
Each year, thousands of ani-
mals are killed in Sarasota
County, many because the
shelters have simply run out
of room.
We need to end the terrible
crisis of unwanted pets, and
each of us can do our part.
If every owner would help.
by taking responsibility for
their pets 1) by spaying or
neutering every animal in
your care to end unwanted
litters, 2) by finding a loving
home for your unwanted
pets, instead of abandoning

them on the streets, and 3) by
visiting a local adoption cen-
ter or shelter when you're
looking to open your home to
a new pet.,We could all work
together to stop animal over-
population.
If you have an animal that
you can no longer care for,
please consider the follow-
ing:
If you're a seasonal resi-
dent who has been feeding a
stray animal, it may be possi-
ble for you to take the pet
with you when you leave. If
you're not able to care for the
pet, perhaps a friend or fami-
ly member can.
Talk to neighbors and
friends before you leave and
try to find a suitable home or
caretaker.
Try pet-sharing! Many pet
owners share their pets with
other families so that while
they are seasonal residents in
another area, the pet is taken
care of by their "second" fam-
ily.
Ask a local animal shelter
for help. Most traditional
shelters will take any animal
and many no-kill shelters will
accept your pet as space
allows. Providing a donation
is a great way to help the shel-
ter offset the costs to care for
the animal. No-kill shelters
will give your pet a home for
life, while traditional shelters
may euthanize the animal if
space becomes an issue. No
matter how uncomfortable
you maybe with the thought
of a shelter situation it is the
only humane option.
If you have a pet that you
no longer want, please do not


abandon your pet in the
street! Many owners say they
would rather turn out an ani-
mal than take it to a shelter.
They feel the animal has a
better chance at survival or
adoption in this way.
This is simply not true. In
the wild, your pet will have to
fend off starvation, disease,
attacks, and other horrible
circumstances they would
never face if taken to a shelter.
If your pet has not been
spayed or neutered there is a
great chance they will contin-
ue to breed which only adds
to the overall problem.
'There is so much we as a
community can do to keep
the homeless animal popula-
tion under control.
If you have a pet that has
not been spayed or neutered,
I urge you to do so immedi-
ately. No-cost and low-cost
programs are available and
there are many animal orga-
nizations ready to assist you.
The Animal Rescue
Coalition has a wonderful
program in place and you can
reach them at 957-1955.
And as always, the volun-
teers at St. Francis Animal
Rescue are available to
answer questions at 492-
6200.

AIR from page 1A


or 6 miles inland toward
Yontan Airfield. It was a
Japanese field that had sur-
vived our initial attack.
"Our Corsairs had already
arrived. They were widely
scattered along the landing
strip. to keep from being
damaged in one group if
they were attacked by the
Japs.
"We were lucky; after the
second day we had a mess
tent and two hot meals a
day. In 10 days we had 40
tents sleeping eight men
each.
"The fighting business
went on. While the Army
and Marine infantry and
mechanized units were
doing their jobs, we were
doing ours and so were the
Japs. Most of the Japanese
destruction efforts took
place on our ships patrolling
off shore.
"This was the period dur-
ing the Okinawa Campaign
where the Japanese used
one of the single most effec-.
tive weapons in WW II the
kamikaze (suicide plane)
against our ships."
Bill Sholin's book, "The
Sacrificial Lambs," about
the U.S. Navy casualties and
U.S. ships sunk at Okinawa
notes: Some 3,500 kami-
kazes were shot down dur-
ing the 82 days of battle.


However, Japanese suicide
pilots damaged 232 U.S.
ships during this battle. Of
that number, 30 of them
were sent to the bottom in
these attacks. This last
major island battle in the
Pacific cost the lives of
12,350 American service-
men and an additional
36,361 were wounded. The
Japanese suffered 109,629
killed, wounded and cap-
tured, according to the
book.
"On the evening of March
24, 1945, I was working late
on my F4U Corsair parked
in a revetment about 100
yards from the runway,"
Galley writes.
"It was just after 2000
hours (8 p.m.). I had com-
pleted some minor mainte-
nance and was testing a
belly fuel drop tank to make
sure it would feed fuel to the
engine when selected. I had
just started the engine and
was sitting there waiting for
the temperatures and pres-
sures to reach green lines on
the gauges.
"Over the noise of the
engine I thought I heard the
air raid siren but wasn't sure.
I didn't hear any gunfire, so I
kept the engine running to
try and finish the test so I
could get the hell off the
field.

"At approximately 2025
hours (8:25 p.m.) I hap-
pened to be looking straight
up in the air and coming
directly over my position
200 feet above me was a
Japanese bomber, a Sally.
There was no sound, the
pilot had cut the engines
and its wheels were still
retracted. I thought, sweet
Jesus, don't let him drop any
bombs, I'm too youngto die!
"No one ever saw any-
body shut down, secure and
jump out of an airplane so
fast. I made it back to the
tent area and plopped into a
shelter. I was scared to
death. I was the only one in
the shelter. The rest of the
guys in my group never got
out of the sack.
"The next morning the
entire complement of MAG-
31 (his unit) went over to the
tower to see the devastation
brought about by the sui-
cide occupants of several
Sally bombers that landed at
Yota Airfield the night
before. Just moments after I
left the Corsair'the previous
night three enemy bombers
were shot down.
"Another enemy bomber

craft gun mount, burying
eight Marines that resulted
in two deaths from suffoca-

landed and a dozen Japs
jumped out with grenades
and demolition charges add
began destroying parked
airplanes. Before they were
killed they demolished nine
and seriously damaged 29
other planes and 70,000 gal-
lons of fuel also went up in
flames.
"Before the attack was
quelled, three men, includ-
ing the tower duty officer,
died of wounds and 18 oth-
ers were wounded. The last
of the Japs wer6 killed a little
after midnight. In all, 69
Japanese bodies were
counted arid buried by the
Seabees.
"A few weeks later, in
August 1945, the United
States dropped the first
atomic bombs, on Hiro-
shima and Nagasaki. Russia
declared war on Japan and
invaded Manchuria. Japan
got the message and
announced its uncondition-
al surrender on Aug. 14. The
surrender document was
signed aboard the Battleship
Missouri in Tokyo Bay.
"Very shortly thereafter
MAG-31 packed all its hard-
ware and went home to
