BY JJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

All that the members of the
Venice Senior Living Com-
mittee want is a place for
older residents to sit while
waiting for the bus.
As it turns out, their re-
quest is more complicated
than just plopping a bench
down next to a Sarasota
County Area Transit bus stop
sign. Multiple city codes and
rules that include right-of-
way distance, fastening down


in case of hurricane and ap-
pearance standards all must
be satisfied, according to
Venice officials.
This revelation frustrated
some on the Senior Living
Committee. Venice's main
bus route across Venice is-
land, for instance, has 57
marked stops but only six
benches.
"What we're trying to do is
just get a bench," said Keith
Backhaus. chair of the com-
mittee. "It's that simple."
Sarah Blanchard. Sarasota


County senior planner for
SCAT, showed up to the most
recent Senior Living meeting
and told members all SCAT
needs is a priority list of
where they believe the
benches are most needed.
There are enough benches in
storage to meet many of
those needs, Blanchard said.
If those are the traditional
concrete sides and wood
planks, however, city codes
will not allow them, accord-
ing to Mary Holcombe, stra-
tegic planning manager.
Venice recently passed a
hurricane debris law that
would punish construction
sites with unsecured materi-


als during a storm, the only
ordinance of its kind within a
four-county region. City staff
is working on expanding this
ordinance to apply to every
property in the city.
"Within the city of Venice,
they could not be put out
there without being secured,"
Holcombe said. "We have to
ensure the city's safety re-
quirements are met."
There are also appearance
standards the traditional
bus stop benches would be a
violation.
In order to get benches
installed anywhere within the
city, a list of the specific loca-
tions must be submitted to


Venice for building code ap-
proval. SCAT must then meet
all construction and appear-
ance requirements, have all
permits awarded, have fund-
ing in place for all those
benches and permit fees and
then obtain city council
approval, Holcombe told the
committee.
By the end of Wednesday's
meeting, the committee de-
cided it would generate a list
of priority spots for benches
to help both SCAT and city
staff to see if something could
be done.

project, which will create up to another 160 feet of beach and is expected to last up to
three months, begins today.


Contractors begin staging to
dump more than 1 million cubic
yards of sand from the South Jetty
down to the Venice Fishing Pier.

ASSISTANT EDITOR

Rivers of sand are about to start flowing
onto Venice Beach.
Workers withWeeks Marine officiallywill
begin staging today to dump more than 1
million cubic yards of sand onto city beach-
es that have been washed away the past
decade due to hurricanes and the Intra-
coastal Waterway's outlet to the gulf. Large
pipes that will pump the sand onto the
beach were arriving by tractor-trailer
Thursday at the north end of the Venice
Fishing Pier parking lot.
Overall, this massive project along 3.2
miles of beach is expected to last about
three months and ald up to an additional
160 feet of beachfront from the South Jetty
down to the Venice Fishing Pier.
The enlarged beach will not remain at
160 feet, as the sand will gradually settle
and form wave barriers, according to
Venice Public Information Officer Pam


Johnson.
"At some point during its natural time,
the beach is expected to go beneath the
water and serve as more of a wave barrier
(during hurricanes)," Johnson said.
Protecting wildlife
All of this construction work will inter-
fere with sea turtle nesting season, as well
as birds that nest on the beach.
So far, only two Wilson's plover nests
have been found. Beach renourishment
workers have to work around these nests,
maintaining the established 300-foot per-
imeter, andwait for the eggs to hatch before
bulldozing out the sand.
Florida Department of Environmental
work permits require the city to conduct
daily bird counts and make sure no nests
are destroyed. Daily bird counts along this
portion of beach show just less than 300,
according to the city.
One of the plover's nests has already
been lost, however, because fish crows at-
tacked it, according to City Engineer Nancy
Woodley, who is overseeing the beach
renourishment project.
"Evidently, those fish crows went in,
jumped the nest and destroyed it," Woodley

School playground marks Rotary's centenary year


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Four hundred emotionally,
physically and mentally chal-
lenged students from kinder-
garten through 12th grade
attending Oak Park School in
eastern Sarasota have a very
special playground, thanks to
Rotarians in Sarasota and
Venice.
Phyllis Frederic, assistant
principal, confirmed at least
60 to 70 students are from
South County. The 13-year-old
school serving an area stretch-
ing from North Port to North
Sarasota has 170 staff mem-
bers, including teachers and
aides assisted by 30 to 50 vol-
unteers.
Sarasota Rotarian Mike
Murphy learned from school
principal Jan Komara that the
school desperately needed a
modern playground. Since
Rotary International is cele-
brating its 100th anniversary,
it seemed appropriate to fund
a project that would benefit
many special needs students
in this community.
In spring 2003 Rotarians
discussed numerous ideas
for a centennial project and
decided under the chairman-
ship of Murphy to assist Oak
Park School.
Teachers were given a
"magic wand," according to
Murphy they were invited
to create wish lists, rather
than suggest how to fit their
students into a traditional
playground.
Based on the suggestions
they began fundraising, en-
listed expert volunteer ser-
vices and made preparations-
to build an instructional
and learning activities play-
ground. Construction started
in August 2004 and was com-
pleted in February 2005. The
Sarasota Rotary Clubs raised
$121,000, including a dona-
tion from Venice-Nokomis


Rotary Club Art Festival prof-
its.
"A ton of services were
rendered in kind: expertise
from architects, surveyors,
landscaping contractors and
many other Rotarians and
members of the community.
A county worker comment-
ed it would have made the
total cash input exceeding
$300,000," said Murphy.
Play and learn
Where the playground has
been built was just a grassy
patch. The special needs stu-
dents, many in wheelchairs,
some visually handicapped
and hearing impaired, needed
a playground matching their
needs with wheelchair and
handicapped access.
Swings are capable of hold-
ing older students weighing
more than 100 pounds. There
are messages and signs in
braille, with activities to stim-
ulate the students, color and
sound equipment disguised
as fun.
Equipment continues the
therapy of balance,, large and
small motor skills, upper body
strength and core strength.
Hopscotch has been designed
for number recognition with
four-square for fractions and
there are traffic signs for safe-
ty education.
When completed the play-
ground cost more than
$160,000.
Students basically attend
the school until they are 22
years old, when they are dis-
persed to various places de-
pending upon their needs.
Emotionally handicapped
students return to their neigh-
borhood schools after com-
pleting necessary periods.
There is a community based
instruction curriculum allow-
ing mentally and physically
handicapped students to
work with businesses in the
community learning func-

"We are extremely grateful
for Rotary and we hope we
will continue with this won-
derful relationship we have
established," concluded Fred-
eric.

BLEACHING
Not all teeth are acceptable as candidates for bleaching. It is important
to listen to your dentist's advice. Experience tells your dentist which
teeth will be successful or not. Teeth that are vital or those that have or
need root canal therapy can both be treated.
The steps of a vital bleach include isolating the tooth, cleaning the
tooth thoroughly, air drying the tooth, and finally placing a special
solution on the tooth, using moderate heat, Many dentists repeat the
process two or more times. Results can vary, but even an excellent
result many not remain successful for more than a few years.
An alternative to vital bleaching is nonvital bleaching. The steps
involved are basically the same. The exception is that the tooth is
bleached from both the inside and the outside. Studies and experience
have shown that is a more predictable and successful procedure
because the bleaching process penetrates more thoroughly and is not
limited to the tooth's enamel.

BC North Port plan joint meeting -where?


But it's not necessarily a sign
of warmer relations, as county commissioner
Paul Mercier blames the city for not
being active enough in solving its problems.


BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR

City commissioners re-
quested a joint meeting with
the Sarasota County Commis-
sion and twice were allegedly
told no thanks.
However, some say, after
the recent news of an east-
coast developer's plan to build
a $1 billion project including
15,000 homes in North Port, it
was the county that asked for
a joint meeting.
While a date has not been
set for the meeting, one North
Port city commissioner ob-


jects to the county's request to
meet at the Robert L. An-
derson Building in Venice.
Commissioner Vanessa Ca-
rusone wrote to City Clerk Hel-
en Raimbeau saying she would
"not recommend" the com-
mission attend the meeting if
it's out of town, in the middle of
the day or if county commis-
sioners and staff established a
"limit" on agenda topics.
Sarasota County Commis-
sion Chair Paul Mercier said
both bodies can create the
agenda for the joint meeting.
Mercier said county com-
missioners didn't necessarily


say no to the joint meeting
with the city. He said there
weren't enough items to war-
rant a meeting. North Port
city commissioners recently
wrote a letter explaining they
wanted to discuss parks and
recreation issues.
"We (commissioners) are
policy makers," Mercier said.
"Both staffs needed to get to-
gether to discuss the issues
before we did."
Place no issue
However, in the past two
months, city commissioners
asked to meet with county
commissioners. Most recently,
city commissioners autho-
rized commission chair Dick
Lockhart to write a letter to
Mercier. Lockhart said be-
cause he and Mercier lived in
the same area up North years


ago, he would just talk to him
in person.
About one week later,
Lockhart said he spoke with
Mercier during a Community
Youth Development awards
program in Sarasota. He told
city commissioners Mercier
denied the request.
On two occasions, Com-
missioner Barbara Gross ex-
pressed discontent with the
county's refusal of a joint
meeting.
Mercier
said he does
not under-
stand why
North Porters ,
or city com-
missioners -
would care
where the
joint meeting
is held. Mercier


"It's not about where we
meet," he said. "We could
meet on the moon, as long
as we meet, it doesn't matter-
where. Why would people
object to coming to the An-
derson Building (in Venice)?"
Mercier said with North
Port's median age of 39, resi-
dents "shouldn't mind" travel-
ing to a meeting.
Mercier, who attended the
joint meeting between city
commissioners and Charlotte
County commissioners last
Friday, said he noticed the
city has a good rapport with
Charlotte County.
"Since North Port has such
\a good relationship with
Charlotte County perhaps
(city commissioners) should
consider annexing into Char-
lotte County," Mercier said.
"You North Porters are so


defensive. While everyone is
so quick to say they want the
county to do something,
North Port could have done
many things to help the sit-
uation. For years, .we (county
officials) have been saying
North Port's impact fees are
too 'low. Everyone is losing
money with all the city's
growth. We tried explaining
this and we were told to mind
our own business."
Mercier said' North Port
"should have asked Charlotte
County for money to improve
Toledo Blade Boulevard" but
missed the opportunity Friday.
"I've been in sales all my
life, and I did not see North
Port sell itself on the shared
needs," he said. "Commis-
sioners missed .their chance
to get a commitment from
Charlotte County."


Attorneys say Cook has good chance on appeal


An opinion from the appellate court
could be handed down any day on the fate
of convicted child molester Mark Cook.


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


An appeals court is expect-,
ed to issue a written opinion
soon on whether former
Venice school principal Mark
Cook's child molestation con-
viction will be overturned.
"The fact it is taking so long
would -.... the appeals
court is taking a serious look
at his case and is likely to is-
sue a written opinion," Cook's
former defense attorney
Derek Byrd said. "I have said
from day one he has legiti-
mate, appealable issues."
Venice defense attorney
Robert Harrison said the
le irn .. '.1 _. .i.-, s by the
Src- d I.;- Iu : ..L.it 1i1 Ap-
peal could bode well for Cook.
"It does tell you, at the very
least, Cook has raised issues
in his appeal that the appel-
late court feels should be
expressed in writing," Har-
rison said. "If there was no
merit, if it were a baseless
appeal, the appellate court
could just say 'denied'. They
can do that in two weeks."
Harrison said the odds. of
the appellate court issuing
such a denial at this point "are
low, but it does happen."
In writing
Byrd, Harrison and other











.ill


attorneys said the appeals
court generally issues written
opinions when it is going to
reverse the lower court.
One said, "They (also) will
sometimes write an opinion
when affirming the lower
court if they feel it is a matter
of such importance that the
appellate judges feel it should
be explained."
Byrd said most appeals are
"perfunctory, that is, simply
going through the motions

.Burkholtz said Thursday
morning the appellate court
would issue opinions Friday,
but, "I can guarantee that
Mark Cook's will not be one
of them."
Burkholtz said he did not
know when the Cook opinion
would be issued.
Doomed by Williams Rule
Cook, 53, a former Venice
Garden Elementary School
principal, was convicted of
two counts of capital sexual
battery May 2, 2003, after a
week-long trial and a four-
hour jury deliberation.
He had been arrested Feb.


19, 2002, and charged with
molesting three students un-
der 12 years old in 1977, 1978
and 1981. He was tried and
convicted on only one victim.
Cook was sentenced con-
secutively, meaning he will
serve 25 years on one count,
and 25 years on the other
count, for a total of 50 years.
He is serving his sentence at
the Polk Correctional Insti-
tution north of Lakeland.
Byrd said one of the legiti-
mate appealable issues was
the William's Rule, the intro-
duction of multiple victims in
the one trial.
Allowing all three victims


to testify in one trial "is what
doomed Mark Cook," he said.
Byrd also said the fact that
the state was allowed to put in
evidence that Cook smoked
marijuana in the 1980s is an
appealable issue.
"I didn't think that had
anything to do with any-
thing," Byrd said.
Cook was offered 15 years
in 'prison prior to trial but
refused. Byrd said Cook
would have served roughly
five years.

Sarasota County sued



for ADA violations


Look out below


Residents of the former Tammi House in Warm
Mineral Springs claim the county discriminated
against them by changing the zoning of their
property, forcing them to move.


BY RENEE LEPERE
STAFF WRITER

A Washington, D.C., attor-
ney has filed a federal lawsuit
against Sarasota County,
claiming it has violated both
the Fair Housing and Amer-
icans with Disabilities acts.
"The county's actions
against Renaissance Manor
and its residents are very un-
settling," said Steven G. Polin,
attorney for Renaissance
Manor and the four individu-
als. "This is a classic example
of a county government al-
lowing the illegal prejudices
of its constituency to dictate
its decision-making process."
Renaissance Manor Inc.
and four of its residents have
filed a complaint in U.S. Dis-
trict Court, claiming that the
county is violating their rights
by using its zoning code to try
to shut down the housing
program formerly The
Tammi House in Warm
Mineral Springs. The plain-
tiffs claim the county has
given into neighbor's "irra-
tional fears."
Renaissance Manor pro-
vides affordable housing and


support to individuals with
disabilities, including those
who have mental illness or
substance abuse problems.
The county revoked its
previous classification of the
property from family use to
community residential home,
which will force Renaissance
Manor to close all but one of
its homes and to evict the res-
idents.
Under both the ADA and
Fair House acts, it is unlawful
to deny housing to a buyer or
renter because of a handicap.
'Arbitrarily reclassified'
From 1997 to 2003, Sara-
sota County allowed the Tam-
mi House a supportive-
housing program for those
with mental illness or sub-
stance abuse to operate
four single-family homes for
six individuals. The state did
not require the facility to have
a license because the facility
did not house residents con-
sidered dangerous.
In 2002, Renaissance Man-
or became interested in pur-
chasing the Tammi House
and expanding the program
to include two additional sin-


gle-family houses to be built
adjacent to the existing
homes on Sevilla Street. The
county permitted the expan-
sion.
The lawsuit claims when
Warm Mineral Springs resi-
dents became aware in spring
2004, of the expansion, they
communicated "fears and
prejudices about the harm
they believed people with dis-
abilities would cause to their
neighborhood."
In July 2004, Renaissance
Manor received a letter from
the county stating none of the
six homes was permissible
within the zoning code of
"family housing."
"Without any new facts or
circumstances ... the county
arbitrarily reclassified the six
homes as community resi-
dential homes," Polin wrote.
Warm Mineral Springs res-
idents Joseph and Maria
Serna, who live adjacent to
the. facilities, are also named
in the suit for allegedly haras-
sing the residents, interfering
with their ability to live in the
housing of their choice.
The lawsuit states the
Sernas have lived in their
home at least since the cre-
ation of the Tammi House in
1997.

Ridge Road west of U.S. 41.
More than 540 homes and
businesses have been hooked
up to central sewer service
and the septic tanks either
removed or rendered perma-
nently inoperative.
"Only about 25 or 30, re-
main," Howell said, "then it
will be finished."
Area A, which includes the
DeSoto Lakes community,
and Area F, which is located
south of Bee Ridge Road and
east of U.S. 41, are currently
about 80 percent complete.
When they are finished, an-
other 2,500 customers will be
hooked up to central service.
Next year, four more com-
munities will be affected by
construction. They include
Sarasota Springs and Forest
Lakes, South Gate and Pine-
craft. They collectively in-
clude 3,500 homes and busi-
nesses in what are known as
Areas C, D and K.
Since 1991, the county has
been under a state order to
replace septic tanks that pol-
lute surface waters and Sara-
sota Bay with a sewage collec-
tion system. But it has faced a
tough challenge obtaining
state grants to help pay for the
ambitious project.

County puts seawall project on hold


BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

A newly formed 75-foot-
wide strip of sand at the south
end of Turtle Beach has per-
suaded Sarasota County
politicians to roll the dice and
gamble that tropical storms
won't devastate the vulnera-
ble Siesta Key shoreline area
this summer and tear up
underground utility lines.
On June 8, the county
commission unanimously
agreed to give a $97,500 Flor-
ida Department of Environ-
mental Protection grant that
would have paid for half the
cost of a buried 432-foot sea-
wall just north of the Fisher-
men's Cove apartment com-
plex.
"We have received permits
to build the wall," County
Administrator Jim Ley report-
ed, "but our staff has reported
an accretion of sand and want
to see if conditions will
change."
The commission agreed to
put construction on hold and
reconsider it only if necessary.
The gamble is that sum-
mer storms out of the south
won't tear out the beach
before a $5.5 million sand re-
placement project gets under
way in autumn 2006, and
replenishes the shoreline

from an area near Point of
Rocks to the former Midnight
Pass.
County officials have
warned commissioners that
another major storm could
breach the low-lying area
near the south end of Siesta
Key and break through into
Blind Pass Lagoon, which
would leave several hundred
Blind Pass Road residents
without utility services.
Last July, the commission
approved a variance for the
project despite its policy
against permitting new sea-
walls and agreed to front
the cost of construction.
When the work was finished,
the state agency promised to
reimburse $97,500.
Restoration
Turtle Beach is the site of a
1,200-foot county park situat-
ed north of two condomini-
um complexes, Fisherman's
Cove and Fisherman's Haven,
plus a dozen privately owned
homes located on Blind Pass
Road at the extreme south
end of Siesta Key.
The area has experienced
serious erosion problems in
recent years.
A home formerly owned by
late Sarasota artist Syd
Solomon has collapsed and
been removed, while several


others have waves lapping
around their foundations and
could be the next to go,
If the tropical stdrmns that
typically arrive every summer
and early autumn hold off,
and the beach restoration
project goes off on schedule
next year, another source of
replacement sand could fol-
low either in the autumn of
2007 or 2008.
The county has hired envi-
ronmental engineer Karyn
Erickson to pursue federal
and state permits to dredge
open the former Midnight
Pass coastal inlet, which has
been closed since 1983.
Sand removed from the
pass area could periodically
restore Casey Key and Siesta
Key beaches.
Erickson recently submit-
ted a long list of responses to
questions from permit au-
thorities, and there is a rea-
sonable expectation she may
have to provide answers after
another round of questions.
The process of obtaining per-
mits could take up to two
years.
If the county is success-
ful, Erickson's plan for the
restoration of Midnight
Pass calls for up to six peri-
odic maintenance dredging
projects over a 30-year peri-
od.

Campus improvements planned for MCC Venice


Renovation of gym into classroom space is
nearing completion. Other improvements will
include an open field recreation area,'water
feature and motorcycle training course.


STAFF REPORT


Manatee Community Col-
lege Venice will undergo a
comprehensive three-phase
campus improvement project
that will begin in January 2006
with expanded parking and
landscaping.
Philip VanEss, director of
facilities planning and main-
tenance at MCC, presented a
landscape concept plan to the
MCC District Board of Trust-
ees on Wednesday.
The plan was designed by
The RMPK Group of Sarasota.
The company held a design
charrette that included MCC
Venice CEO Joan McGill, stu-
dents, faculty and staff.
MCC President Dr. Sarah,
Pappas said the college antici-
pates spending about $1 mil-
lion during the first year of the
three-year phased project that
is expected to total $3 million.
Starting in Spring 2006,
first-year renovations will
begin with the, addition of
shade and palm trees, as


many as 250 of a final total of
300 new parking spaces and a
circular drop-off area.
When completed, campus
improvements will include a
landscaped entryway from
U.S. 41, an open field recre-
ation area, a reading grove,
shaded seating areas, a water
feature and an open area in
the parking lot for a popular
motorcycle training course.
In response to students'
specific requests, an expanded
pathway around the lake will
offer a better view of a rookery.
Renovation complete
VanEss reported that the
$3.6 million renovation of
MCC Venice's former Life Fit-
ness Center into a Profes-
sional Development Center is
90 percent complete and will
be ready for classes in the Fall
term that begins Aug. 22.
The two-story, 38,101-
square-foot facility will feature
12 regular classrooms, four
computer laboratories, two
distance learning classrooms


and a nursing education tech-
nology laboratory.
A multi-use space can
accommodate 100 people for
college and community meet-
ings or be partitioned off into
four additional classrooms.
MCC trustees approved a
joint recommendation from
Pappas, the Foundation for
MCC Executive Director Peg
Lowery, and the MCC Naming
Committee to approve the
recognition of financial con-
tributors to the MCC Venice
PDC by naming areas of the
building in their honor.
Venice Hospital Founda-
tion made a $2.5 million
endowment to the Founda-
tion of MCC Inc. on Feb. 1. The
contribution resulted in the
college's first fully endowed
chair in nursing and a faculty
staff position in health sci-
ences at MCC Venice.
Named rooms approved by
the MCC trustees include:
Venice Hospital Foundation
Nursing Wing, The Dignam
(Annette and Tom) Family of
Englewood Social Behavioral
Science Classroom, The Wil-
liam G. Selby and Marie Selby
Community Room, and the
Venice Regional. Medical Cen-
ter Nursing Classroom.
The Randy White (PGT


Industries) Computer Lab was
also named. Contributions
that led to naming the com-
puter lab were made entirely
by PGT Industries employees
to honor their outgoing boss.
Graduation gap
In other business, Carol
Griffin, employment/equity
coordinator, presented a Flor-
ida Educational Equity Act
Report draft that has been
submitted to the state. High-
lights include an announce-
ment that MCC has narrowed
the graduation gap between
African-American and white
students by 9.4 percent. The
number of Hispanic students
participating in a College
Reach-Out Program for mid-
dle and high school students
increased from 15 percent to
30 percent.
MCC was included on Pub-
lisher's Pick lists of communi-
ty colleges by the Hispanic
Outlook in Higher Education
magazine's 2002, 2003 and
2004 issues.
Pappas also reported that
the Florida Legislature ap-
proved $2.9 million in Public
Education Capital Outlay
funds for remodeling of the
graphic design/art building at
MCC Bradenton.

UHS monetary

misunderstanding

pops up in North Port


BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER


What started as a request
for $170,000 from the city
turned out to be a big misun-
derstanding.
Universal Health Services'
Craig Conti, director of corpo-
rate development, sent a 29-
page letter Monday to Interim
City Manager Henry Jenkins,
thanking the city for "the
recent affirmation of the
resolution" to support UHS,
and saying it speaks "well to
the strong character and lead-
ership of the city."
The letter included copies
of invoices totaling
$230,286.17 that UHS had
spent on the hospital initia-
tive.
It was Conti's understand-
ing, which he stated in the
letter, that "the commission
has agreed to release these
funds to UHS as per the origi-
nal resolution."
Within several hours of the
city receiving the letter, Conti
realized it was a big misunder-
standing.
In an e-mail Conti sent to
city commissioner Vanessa
Carusone, he stated, "thanks
for clearing up the misund-
erstanding regarding the
$170,000 set aside by the city
to support a CON (certificate
of need) effort. We realize now
the $170,000 has been deplet-
ed, and therefore understand
the city will not be reimburs-
ing UHS for any expenses as
was discussed with attorney
Fuller."
Real estate developer Todd


Menke from Sarasota said
conversations with attorney
Jeff Fuller, of Fuller, Holson-
back, Bivins & Malloy PA of
Tampa, led Conti to believe
the money was available.
"There was a general
understanding that certain
funds, an undisclosed
amount, were available,"
Menke said. "For some reason,
their invoices were never
addressed."
'Big time screw-up'
Commissioner Barbara
Gross recalled UHS was ask-
ed to write an agreement,
which she believes Rob
Robinson, attorney for the
city, and former City Man-
ager Mark Roath were work-
ing on, but never finalized.
"They couldn't get an
agreement unless the com-
mission approved it," Gross
said.
Gross said the money was
put in the budget to cover the
city's costs.
"We never said the money
would be paid to UHS," Gross
said. :
"The money was never to
be attached to UHS," Canu-
sone said; "It was to go to the
clerk's office, Fuller, specialty
fees, legislative issues, and
not UHS directly."
"I think it was a big time
screw-up," Carusone said.

minutes of seat time. Middle
schools and high schools
using block scheduling would
be treated similarly.
"What's driving our de-
sign," said Scott Lempe, exec-
utive director of human
resotirces, "is a desire to close
the achievement gap by hav-
ing more time for teachers to
spend with students to
improve their performance.
It's just one of the ways we are


trying to accommodate more
intensive reading at middle
school and other levels."

Short days
If teachers and classified
employees agree to the
lengthier school day, there
will be an as-yet-undeter-
mined increase in salary
guaranteed for the 2005-06
school year regardless of
whether the referendum
passes because the current
referendum remains in effect


throughout 2006.
The district expects educa-
tors to use the additional time
building their instructional
skills, particularly ESOL train-
ing that helps educate stu-
dents with limited English
proficiency.
The salary increase for an
extended day will be above
and beyond salary increases
yet to be negotiated for move-
ment within the salary sched-
ule, and for increases in the
salary schedule itself. Each


percent increase in salary
equals roughly $2 million of
the district budget.
Salary increases tied to the
extended "duty day" for the
2006-07 school year and
beyond would be contingent
upon the passage of a refer-
endum. Should the vote fail,
the duty day would be rolled
back to today's level as would
the salary increase associated
with it.
Norris told the school
board last week Sarasota


County has one of the short-
est contract duty days in the
state, emphasizing that every
few minutes gained in the
classroom or planning is vital
for student success.
"The proposals could very
well serve as the central
issues for bargaining for the
next two years," said SC/TA
Executive Director Barry
Dubin in the May 19 issue of
the SC/TA publication At The
Table.
"While it would be nice to


finally have a clearly defined
duty day and to get paid extra
for time most teachers are
already putting in, the devil is
in the details," Dubin said.
"We must also carefully
look at the implications for
classified employees. Some of
their duty days may have to
increase as well. Clearly this
language will have an impact
on the duty day of aides, and
could have an impact on bus

said.

Relocation
DEP permits allow sea tur-
tle nests to be relocated, un-
like bird nests.
Mote Marine Laboratory
has been hired to handle this
aspect of the job, which isn't an
easy proposition. Turtle nests
must be relocated within 12
hours of being created or else
there's a risk of destroying the
entire batch of eggs.
The yoke inside of a sea
turtle's egg attaches itself to
the top of the shell after 12
hours have elapsed.
"It's a very delicate pro-
cess," said Jim Grimes, staff
biologist with Mote Marine
Laboratory. "If you have an
egg that's already attached,
the yoke breaks off and the
embryo drowns."
Two sea turtle nests have
been relocated so far, just
south of Brohard Beach Park.
Visitors to the beach are cau-
tioned to be extra careful in
that region.
The goal is to avoid moving
nests if at all possible, Grimes
said.
"Every time we relocate the


nest, you increase the chance
of mortality of the eggs,"
Grimes said. "We don't like to
relocate it if we don't have to."
Last year, there were 118 sea
turtle nests in the Venice area.
That's half as many nests as
there were in 2003 and the fifth
consecutive year of decline.

Limited access
Portions of the beach will
be closed to the general pub-
lic as work begins. Weeks
Marine should finish staging
its equipment and barge, cur-
rently anchored about a mile
off shore, within the next
week, and then begin dredg-
ing up sand from the bottom
of the Gulf of Mexico.
From there, large sections
of pipe will be extended from
the water and up onto shore.
Thousands and thousands of
cubic yards of sand will be
spewed onto the beach and
then spread out by bulldoz-
ers.
Roped-off. areas will be
limited, Woodley said, so
there will still be plenty of
spots for swimmers and sun-
bathers along this 3.2-mile
stretch. Workers will start


dumping sand just south of
Venice Fishing Pier and slow-
ly work north toward South
Jetty.

Total costs
The final dollar figure may
take years to tally. Many of the
charges will arrive in waves.
More than $17 million was
budgeted for the sand-dredg-
ing project, with about $4
million of that coming out of
local sources. Weeks Marine
won the bid at:$12:1 million,
so both the local and federal
governments will see some
saving there.
Venice City Council will be
asked Tuesday to approve
spending more than $2 mil-
lion with Coastal Technology
Corp. spread out over the next
five years. Coastal Technology
is the monitoring agency that
helped Venice acquire the
renourishment permits, and
this $2 million will fund five
years of required data collec-
tion and studies about the
affects Venice's addition of
sand has on natural habitats.
Woodley believes as much
as half this cost will be
matched by state funds.


However, the city must bud-
get the full amount in order to
award the contract and in
case the state decides not to
provide matching grants.
There's also a question of
building offshore reefs, as
required by the state. Venice
has to construct 7.3 acres of
artificial reef, built in three
sections, out of limestone.
The city is still attempting
to use concrete instead of
limestone, which could radi-
cally alter the price. Woodley
estimates it will take 16,000
tons of limestone to build the
reefs.
In February, City Manager
Marty Black said the city has
received limestone ,quotes
ranging from $35 to $80 per
ton, potentially pushing reef
material costs to $1.3 million.
Venice could get most of the
concrete for free from demo-
lition jobs around the area.
Woodley is still' shopping
for limestone suppliers.. In-
cluding construction, the reef
project could run as much as
$3 million.

These oversized pipes arrived by tractor-trailer Thursday and
will be used to pump more than a million cubic yards of sand

ECCfrompagelA


who represents Bill and Marie
Ruhl, parents of one of the
alleged victims, said she plans
to file a civil lawsuit against
ECC.:, : -
"I believe what happened
to my client constitutes
abuse," Gorton said. "We are
not willing to accept the state
attorney's argument that this
was not a criminal act.".
1 Gorton and Ruhl met with
state attorneys this week hop-
ing to persuade them to file
misdemeanor charges
against a number of current
and former ECC employees,
but came away empty-hand-
ed. Misdemeanor convictions
against the teachers in ques-
tion would effectively prohib-
it their future employment at'
other Florida day-care cen-
ters, Gorton said.
Gorton wanted to know


why day-care statues that
prohibit corporal punish-
ment were trumped by the
King decision.
"We did not get answers,"
Gorton said.
According to Gorton, state
attorneys told her even if King
is overruled, theywill not pur-
sue the cases.
"Given the assistant state
attorney's representation
on Wednesday afternoon
that he would not file these
charges even if the King
case were expressly over-
ruled, I have no choice but
to conclude this decision
was (the result of) a
cost/benefit analysis that
failed to take into account
the harm inflicted on these
victims. The offenders now
have a license to abuse chil-
dren in the future."


Parents disappointed
Parent Lisa Blaise said
Wednesday she intends to file
a lawsuit against ECC, alleg-
ing her child was the victim of
child abuse. She was one of a
group of parents that met
Tuesday evening to discuss
the case.
"I'm absolutely disap-
pointed in the state attorney's
decision, but there is hope,"
Blaise said. "This group is
going to take action. We have
wonderful, intelligent parents
determined to make a change
occur in the prosecution of
this case and possibly state
statutes. We all have voices.
It's just a matter of being
heard."
Blaise pulled her child out
of the day-care center in
October when the Venice Po-
lice Department first began


investigating allegations.
"We're going to continue
meeting and try to educate
more parents about what the
law says and what needs to
happen. In my opinion, it
seems very clear to me what
the definition of abuse is.
From what we've experi-
enced, it meets my defini-
tion."
Attorney John Dent's firm
filed the first civil lawsuit
against ECC last month. He
plans to add the charge of
breaching' Sarasota County
regulations to the lawsuit.
Ordinance No. 2004-064,
section 14, adopts state stan-
dards regarding child care,
including the state's defini-
tion of child abuse and the
prohibition on corporal pun-
ishment, into county laws.
"It appears (state attor-


. neys) crossed over the line,
from what the facts appear to
be," Dent said. "They have
prosecuted (this kind of case)
in the past-- some they won,
some they lost. Even if you.
prosecute and lose, it sends a
message to day-care centers
that they can be scrutinized."
"This is just, scary. It's
almost as if (offenders) have
to kill the kid to get a prosecu-
tion.
"Whenever our govern-
ment can step in to try and
stop what's going on, they
should make every effort to
do it."

VPD review:
Venice Police Department
filed 29 complaints in March
against two current and four
former employees of ECC for
the state attorney's office to


consider.
Police chief Dan McGoo-
gan said he, too, was disap-
pointed in the state attorney's
decision not to prosecute, but
understood the need to con-
sider resources and other
implications before moving
forward with the case.
McGoogan said the Venice
Police Department intends to
meet with state attorneys
next week to discuss the in-
vestigation further.
"We are going to review the
cases to see if there is anypur-
pose in refiling or filing new
documents. We will have that
discussion probably next
week to determine if there are
any other legal avenues for us
to take," McGoogan said.

Enhanced skills
A second proposal imple-
ments a special certification
process for teachers who par-
ticipate in additional training.
The plan calls for ad-
vanced professional training
to ensure teachers practice
effective teaching strategies,
including planning and de-
veloping lessons by using
data and district standards,
curriculum mapping, coop-
erative learning, project bas-
ed instruction, developing
assessments, student engage-
ment, differentiated instruc-
tion and'effective utilization
of technology.
An oversight committee
would be created, consisting
of appointees by the union
and district, to develop terms


of certification, a process for
recertification and a time line
to fully implement the plan.


"The proposals could
very well serve as the
central issues for bar-
gaining for the next
two years."
SC/TA Executive
Director Barry Dubin



The plan guarantees addi-
tional compensation not
yet negotiated for teachers
who becoming a "Certified
NeXt Generation Teacher."
Norris previously referred to
$5,000 per year for each
teacher who receives certifi-


cation.
SC/TA will consider the
proposals over the summer.
The district hopes to have
a contract approved before
educators come back to
school in August, Lempe said.
In addition to proposed
salary increases for a longer
school day and NeXt Gener-
ation certification, the district
is currently negotiating an
increase in the salary sched-
ule for school employees,
which includes a separate,
automatic annual raise for
longevity, often referred to as
"movement" within the salary
schedule.
Employees received a 4.25
percent increase for each of
the last two years. '

Will it matter?
City council member Bill
Willson, the ex-officio to the
committee, pointed out that
installing benches at bus stops
might be a pointless act SCAT
has been undergoing funding
shortfalls, and while the orga-
nization denies there'll be any
reduction in services, many
Venice residents fear there will
be cutbacks.
Ridership numbers in Ven-
ice are among the lowest in
the county because of the
city's small size, despite
Venice's high percentage of
older citizens who require
public transportation.
"That's the $64,000 ques-
tion," Willson said. "It's not
about getting benches. Will
we have bus services?"
Blanchard reiterated there
are no plans to eliminate bus
routes in Venice. SCAT is


reviewing "transportation al-
ternatives," which will be un-
veiled to Venice City Council
during its Tuesday meeting
and again June 1 at the Venice
Train Depot during a public
meeting.
Low ridership and a lack of
benches are connected, Back-
haus said. Venice has no bus
shelters and almost every bus
stop is just a sign stuck in the
ground next to a curb.
"We're really missing the
opportunity to meet the
needs and enhance ridership
at the same time," Backhaus
said. "It's wrong for a 90-year-
old woman to have to hang
onto a sign, waiting for the
bus, after riding all the way
across town to shop for gro-
ceries."

'ers are City Cup champions


Nationwide's catcher Chas Lacko throws to first in an attempt to
throw out a Lawyers batter who bounced a ground ball off home
plate in Thursday's City Cup championship game.

BY DON HUTCHINS
CORRESPONDENT

In the deciding game of the
little league City Cup champi-
onship Thursday evening, the
top-seeded Lawyers downed
the second-seeded Nationwide
team, 5-3.
Brett Smith started out
strongly on the mound against
the Lawyers offense, giving up
only one base hit in the top of
the first to Troy Richards.
Similarly, the Lawyers' starting
pitcher Brett Swikle showed the
same pitching strength against
Nationwides' offense giving up
just one single and easily retir-
ing the other three batters he
faced.
In the top of the second,
the Lawyers would score the
teams first run. Joey Buncik led
off the inning with a base hit.
Two batters later, Michael
Johnson hit a line drive single to
shallow center. The very next
batter, Nick Fotos hit an RBI
blooper off the tip of the bat
that barely rolled to the pitcher.
Nationwide retired the side only
one run down.
In the bottom of the second,
Nationwide came out swinging.
Leading off, Chas Lacko hit a
line drive single. Devon Cruz-
Klein followed with a base hit of


his own. As Brett Swikle faced
the next batter, Nationwide,
was able to capitalize off a.
throwing error to tie the game,
at one apiece. The following
batters, Zak Harmon, Brett
Smith and Wes Ojeda would
all hit singles ultimately giv-
ing their team a 3-1 lead. The
score of the game would
remain unchanged until the


top of the fifth.
After Brett Smith relic
the first two batters, Brett
Swilde knocked oui a hijmer

Discovering Myakkahatchee Creek


BY RENEE LEPERE
STAFF WRITER

She waits patiently. Creeks
almost always do.
Canopied and shadowed
by live and laurel oaks, the
Myakkahatchee Creek mean-
ders through the 160-acre
park, owned by the city of
North Port and operated by
Sarasota County.
It is largely a quiet place,
although ATV tracks and traf-
fic from nearby Tropicaire
Boulevard remind you the
park is not an island from the
hectic world.
On this day, though, the
park; the creek and the inhab-
itants were free of human


interaction. Red-shouldered
hawks, sandhill cranes, alliga-
tors and white-tail deer all call
the park home, but except for
the flying hawks, they were
taking refuge in the thick
shades of oak hammock.

DIRECTIONS TO
MYAKKAHATCHEE
CREEK PARK
Take Sumter Boulevard,
turning left on Tropicaire
Boulevard. Turn right on
Reistertown Road.



Cross a few footbridges
over the red-tinged creek, and


one finds the home of giants.
Gargantuan limbs tentacle
into the ground and back out,
dipping branches like fingers
into the flowing creek. The
oaks, for all the their beauty,
are messy neighbors. The for-
est floor is a crunch carpet of
their dead leaves; palmetto
and sabal palms are littered
with their leaves.-
But the grand stretch of
the oaks- can only reach so far.
As the landscape changes to
pine flatwoods, fields are
freckled with golden tickseed
and purple thistle. Monarch,
queen and zebra butterflies
share the airspace with love-
bugs as they hone in on the
flowers for a landing.


As one begins to acclimate
to the park, one realizes what
had initially been perceived
as quiet, hasn't been quiet at >
all. Visitors catch the sublime
first the grandeur of the
oaks, the dappled light, the
array of colors.
But look and listen closer
and one may see spiders have
been spinning webs in the
trees. Squirrels are having
shrill arguments. Cardinals
are calling to each other.
Lizards have been scamper-
ing about.
And the creek flows on
patiently.

OUR VIEW




The littlest victims get abused again


To paraphrase the late Supreme Court
Justice Potter Stewart, child abuse was
something we thought we might not be
able to define, but that we would know when
we saw it.
Lifting a child up and slamming her down
on her buttocks (so-called "jacking") ... force
feeding to the point where a child vomited...
making one child punch another in the nose
... making a child wear her soiled underwear
on her head all those things seem to us to
qualify as child abuse.
But the state of Florida apparently has
another name for those acts discipline.
At least that's what State Attorney Earl
Moreland's office tells us.
Those heinous acts and others are among
the incidents the Venice Police Department
reported to the state attorney's office as hav-
ing occurred at Venice Presbyterian Church's
Early Childhood Center, a facility for children
from 6 weeks to 5 years old. Based on its
investigation, VPD recommended charges
against four former and two current ECC staff
members.
Assistant State Attorney Steve Zimath an-
nounced Tuesday that none of them will be
charged.
There is incomplete or conflicting evi-
dence of many of the allegations, according
to the memo Zimath released explaining his


decision. He did state, however, that "this
office has nonetheless been able to. identify
allegations that did satisfy an initial threshold
requirement" of corroboration.
The memo doesn't say what those acts
were, but concludes, based on a recent pros-
ecution involving a church school in
Charlotte County, that they do not "rise to the
level necessary for criminal prosecution."
It's an outrage that the state of Florida law
is such that Zimath could reach that decision,
but we'll save that topic for another edition.
Our concern today is how the state attorney's
office has let these children down.
Prosecutors like things to be black and
white, but they are used to dealing with
shades of gray rare is the case when they
have a videotape of a crime, or some other
seemingly conclusive piece of evidence.
And cases of child abuse certainly present
some difficulties, not the least of which is the
fact that the victim may only be a fewyears old,
and presumed by the law not to be reliable.
Possibly Zimath would have filed charges,
however, in spite of those hurdles but for the
case of King vs. State, decided by the Second
District Court of Appeal (which has jurisdic-
tion over Sarasota County) in February.
King, an administrator at Charlotte
Regional Christian Academy, was convicted
of felony child abuse for paddling an 8-year-


old student two times on her clothed but-
tocks for cheating and lying; her parents had
signed a form on enrollment consenting to
the punishment method.
The paddling left "significant welts and
bruises" on her buttocks, but no physical or
other impairment was shown.
The court overturned the conviction
because "significant welts and bruises" aren't
enough to convict for felony child abuse,
which requires as a matter of law proof of
"more serious beatings that do not result in
permanent disability or permanent disfig-
urement."
Attorneys do one of two things with such
precedents: They cite them as authority when
they want a similar result in a case they have,
or they "distinguish" them point out the
differences between the facts there and those
of their client, when they want the court to
reach a different result.
That's what Zimath failed to do here.
The difference between the King case and
the acts alleged to have occurred at ECC are
stark, in our eyes: two swats on the rear com-
pared to numerous acts of violence or humil-
iation; an 8-year-old school-age victim com-
pared to preschool children; parental con-
sent to corporal punishment in the tradition-
al form of paddling compared to "jacking"
and punching that parents would and could


not have consented to; punishment for lying
compared to discipline of 3- and 4-year-olds
for "not eating, not napping, not listening to
instructions"; no lasting injury compared to
children being put in counseling.
But there are two clinchers. One, the ap-
pellate court has asked the Florida Supreme
Court to review its ruling; the matter is under
consideration there, which means the prece-
dent Zimath is relying on might itself be over-
turned. He has said he would reconsider his
decision if that happens.
Second, and more important, Florida law
prohibits corporal punishment in child-care
facilities. In fact, Section 402.305(12) bans
any punishment in them that is "severe,
humiliating, or frightening" or that is associ-
ated with "food, rest, or toileting."
We think that law trumps King, and we
urge Earl Moreland and his deputies to re-
consider Thesday's decision.
We don't know if any of the ECC staff
members who were investigated is guilty. But
if there is reason to charge any of them with a
crime, the state attorney's job is to figure out
a way to do it and let the justice system run its
course.
Otherwise, the message is that a teacher
can do almost anything to a child in the name
of discipline as long as it doesn't leave a scar,
physical or emotional.


God's politics


I don't usually drive 28
miles to hear an evangelical
Christian minister who was
raised in a Midwest evangeli-
cal family and went to an
evangelical divinity school in
Illinois.
But the blurb on Jim Wallis
caught my attention and I
arrived at the Hyatt to find a
full house at the first of this
year's Forum 2005 events.
Wallis' booming voice let
us know that the "monologue
of the religious right is over. A
dialogue has begun."
Wallis believes Jerry Fal-
well, Pat Robertson and Jim
Dobson have excluded the
evangelical Christians, just as
many Catholic bishops have
excluded many of their pa-
rishioniers. But those groups
not on the extreme right have
begun a discussion with liber-
als, blacks, Asians, rabbis,
Muslims, nonbelievers, ag-
nostics, gays and nonfeli-
gious but spiritual people.
In this conversation on
faith and politics in America,
Wallis would even include
"The Daily Show" with Jon
Stewart on Comedy Central.
Although it is secular, Stew-.
art's "humor and satire is spir-
itual and has a moral edge."
Thus, all, not only Re-
publicans, have begun a
"moral discourse about pub-
lic life."
Wallis points out that "reli-
gion has no monopoly on
morality." One does not have
to belong to a religion to be
moral. But there must be a
nonsectarian moral compass
for politics.
On the right, two issues
have become an obsession -
abortion and gay marriage.
"Yet in the Bible," Wallis
said, "I found 3,000 verses on
poor people. Poverty is a
moral issue."
The care of the environ-
ment is a moral issue. Going
to war, and the reasons why
we go to war, is a moral issue.
He asks how, with these
moral issues, did the Demo-
crats become labeled as non-
moral? And he answers, they


conceded the territory of val-
ues and morals to the right-
wing Republicans. Itis time to
take that territory back.
In the past, evangelists
helped change history by
fighting against slavery and
for women's suffrage. Wallis
'b, beeps that today, when it
seems impossible to change
things, faith and faith-based
initiatives come into play.
In the world, 3 billion peo-
ple live on less than $2 a day:
"This shapes our humanity."
We can be hopeful or cyni-
cal. If we are cynical, we are
disappointed and disillu-
sioned. Therefore, we pull
back to protect ourselves
from vulnerability and we do
nothing.
On the other hand, hope is
a decision, a choice, some-
times because of faith. Hope
is a dynamic of social change.
The concept that struck
me the most was the one that
followed from the idea of
hope and change: Each one of
us can discern our gift -
what we love to do so much
that we lose track of time
doing it. Where that gift inter-
sects with the social dynamic,
that is one's vocation a call-
ing to make a difference.
Wallis is calling all of us "to
never say, 'It is too big, we're
too small. We haven't got
leaders.' Don't ever say it. We
are the ones we have been
waiting for."
We, who have the moral
imperative for peace and
compassion, are the ones
who must continue to speak
out and act.
I could not help but think
of Dr. Paul Farmer, whose
biography, "Mountains Be-
yond Mountains," showed
how much one man could do
with an attitude of hope and a
belief that nothing is too big. I"
thought of Doctors without
Borders, the mother who
started Mothers Against
Drunk Drivers, the' local vol-
unteers and so many more.
In the question-and-an-

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


A lobbyist by any other name


Editor:
You gotta love Lorraine Coccaro in her column of May 13,
Stopping the modem-day robber barons.
She examines the recently passed Sarbanes-Oxley Act,
which makes some real changes, in anti-corruption law. She
then points out that changes were subsequently made to the
law so that CEOs of companies were exempt from the law.
These came about through the efforts of (you'll never guess)
- lobbyists. Have any of you had it up to here with these guys?
In an effort to get a handle on what these folks really do for
a living, simply change the term "lobbyist" to "bribist" and
enlightenment begins.
'Let us see if we can give a definition to these terms using the
New Webster's Dictionary: lobbyist persons or groups of
persons who accost or solicit legislators in order to influence
the action of a legislative body in the interest of a special group,
industry, etc.; bribe/bribery (bribist, by inference) any gift
used corruptly to influence public or official action. Anybody
fail to see the linkage?
Now, let's see if I've got this right. The lobbyist/bribist, rep-
resenting a special group or industry, offers a sum of money (or
perhaps other favors) to a public official to influence legislative
action in behalf of the group he represents. Everyone got it?
Lobbying, my fellow Americans, should not, as a matter of
both law and reason, be allowed. Please take appropriate
action- now.

Legislature has
us all 'overbilled'
Editor:
Ignorance of the law is no
excuse. Remember hearing
this phrase? Maybe it should
be changed to ignorance of
the law is bliss.
This year, once again, the
Florida House and Senate
each had about 3,000 pro-


posed bills. Many of these
bills became law.
How did we ever get along
last year without these new
laws? The thought of living
without these laws must have
just worn on people's souls.
Do you know what these
laws are? No? You better study
up, because ignorance of the
law is no excuse.


* Now those 3,000 bills were
just in the state Legislature.
How about new federal laws?
How about new county and
city ordinances? How about
new administrative codes?
Better get out your reading
glasses.
Heaven forbid if you cross
one of the new terrorism laws.
If you do, you may not even
get a court date, in the name
of national security.
Could I have crossed the
line by writing this letter to
the editor? After all, it is criti-
cal of the way our govern-
ment works., I don't know. Do
you?
When will it end? Can we
ever have a session to remove
failed laws laws that never
'did solve the problem they
were proposed to solve?Would
one session be enough?

Tolls would take a toll
Editor:
In reply to R.J. Schaubs of
Venice on his items to ease
growth: We should install toll
booths at all roads leaving
Venice city limits. Tolls should
be $10 per vehicle plus $2 per
passenger, payable to Sara-
sota County for the use of
county roads.
If Venice residents use

Editor:
A column by Lorraine
Coccaro on the Opinion page
of the Gondolier Sun encour-
aged us to read "Mountains
Beyond Mountains," a biog-
raphy byTracy Kidder about a
man named Dr. Paul Farmer.
Cocarro tells us Farmer
had risen out of an impover-
ished childhood to attain a'
full scholarship to Duke.
There he studied anthropolo-

into his actively protesting
our government's "disparate
immigration policy for Cu-

Height limits stifle creativity


No limits. There should be no height limit on West Venice
Avenue. The Griffiths' addition would have given the down-
town character. I guess city council wants to become like the
condo Nazis: everything just alike, stifling creativity in our
community. Remember what makes a flower garden so
appealing it's the blend of the different varieties. I'm amazed
city council caved so quickly to Herb Levine. What will they
give into next time? Where is their backbone? Give Herb an
inch and he'll take a mile. Haven't they learned this yet? Isn't
beauty in the eye of the beholder? Look what they did with the
pigs they weren't all alike; it's the difference that made them
appealing.


Upset. I was very upset
about that paid political ad-
vertisement. I thought we
were finished with that Schi-
avo business. I'm very upset
that you would accept this ad
to Sen. Bill Nelson.
No more. Give up on the
Sunday paper. Looked for.
Saturday news; saw none.
Articles were written days
before. Sunday paper 'does
not have any news from Sat-
urday, and moreover Sunday
paper is only a means of de-
livering countless ads. A
waste. Go back to two days or
Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday.
No more Sunday.
Think ahead.Where are the
thinking caps of the council
members and city planners,
community builders, code
enforcers and Habitat for
Humanity? Where are they?
Lots in South Venice were
very cheap; houses not in
conformity to the rest of the
community have been
squeezed in. Habitat now
wants to build cheap, afford-
able homes within Venice and
North Port. Get your act
together plan a complex of
affordable homes and condos
in an area with many acres.
Grove Terrace is in absolute
neglect. Now builders want to
infringe and make it a mess.
Plan for the future, not just for
today.
Envious. I find it humorous
the read in the column about
the readers who can't find
time to read three Gondolier-
Suns a week. I'm an 81-yearr
old retiree, read the Herald-
Tribune every day and the
New York Times on Sunday.
With the Gondolier Sun I read
the main news and the opin-
ion sections, I glance at the
ads, I skip the Classifieds and
the stories whose headlines
suggest they are of no interest
to me. In our house we rarely
put the TV on before 5 in the
afternoon. I also spend about
an hour a day on the comput-
er, and have found the time to
read a couple of books in the
last couple of months and
two weekly magazines. I
guess I should envy those
whose life if so full they don't
have time to read three Gon-
dolier Suns a week.,
Be vigilant. Praise for Mr.
Bob Vedder on Let's take a
stand on drug and alcohol
abuse. A lot of the trouble is,
just like with sex offenses, the
children are afraid to tell you
where they're getting the
drugs from so we can get
these people away from our,
children. They're scared,
they're threatened, they're
told things. Today there are all


different kinds of names out
there for drugs and alcohol.
Mr. Vedder, you've got to edu-
cate the children, educate the
parents. Tell the parents to
look for things while the chil-
dren are in school; they have
that right. Check their piggy
banks, where they might
stash stuff. Sodas -years ago
the kids used to put liquor in
the soda. Parents would walk
in and think they were drink-
ing soda and they were drink-
ing liquor. Keep your eyes and
ears open. No one is immune
from this.
Wrong legs. I'd just like to
know why they don't take the
shackles off of Martha Stewart
and put them on the sex
predators.
Barely making it. Abso-
lutely, Venice should provide
land for affordable housing. If
they have extra land, I believe
they should build some
affordable housing here for
the working guy that cannot
afford to purchase a house,
even if both husband and
wife are working. With kids,
they barely have enough to
make it. They have to have
affordable housing in Venice.
That would., be a wonderful,
wonderful thing. Maybe it
would keep some people
here.
Go for it. I think it's a really
great idea for Venice to do-
nate land to Habitat for Hu-
manity for affordable hous-
ing. Habitat for Humanity has
been around for a long time
and it provides opportunities
for people to make it without
having to lose everything in
their lives. It's a make a great,
great contribution. Let's go for,
it.
Next move? Jesse Knight
Cemetery in Nokomis is look-
ing great. The Venice Noko-
mis Methodist Church is real-
ly doing a great job improving
the grounds. The Venice Gon-
dolier Sun is a great newspa-
per, but three days a week is
kind of rough. What my big
concern is, will the Venice
Gondolier Sun ever sell? Will
,there be condominiums
there? With Ewing moving
out, the Gondolier Sun looks
kind of out of place, with all
the cars and the semitractor-
trailers there. It might be an'
area than can be improved.
Willson rave. Hurray for
council member Bill Willson.
He speaks for the majority of
Venetians. Let's make him our
next mayor. Way to go, Bill: no
high-rises on the island side
of Venice.
Every year. Every city in
every county should donate
properties to a good cause

Victimization. Jim Miller's.
dissertation on Canadian
drugs was more truthful than
Suzy Cohen's spin. Canada
has a health and welfare
agency that analyzes FDA-
approved drugs' effects fur-
ther. Another thing the spin
doctors neglect to tell is
Canada has forbidden price
fixing. The negotiation of
prices by our government's
largest buyer, Medicare, is for-
bidden, and that is why U.S.,
citizens' drug victimization
does exist.
Eye for an eye. The time
has come for us to implement
the death penalty. Carlie
Brucia and the girls that have
followed her have been now
deterrent. An eye for an eye. I
think it's time that we imple-
ment the death penalty and
put these people away. There
needs ,to be some deterrent
and we obviously don't have it
or haven't found it yet.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Florida does
have the death penalty, but none
of these cases has come to trial.
Unlicensed. The definition
of sodomy is anything other
than normal intercourse; any-
thing out of the ordinary or
considered abnormal could
be considered sodomy. The
whole comment was directed
to the narrow-minded person
who believes homosexuals
should receive a sodomy li-
cense. The point of that com-
ment was, there are so many
heterosexuals that engage in
sodomy. It's not just the ho-
mosexuals. I'm a heterosexual
man, and in fairness to ho-
mosexuals, there are quite a
few heterosexual couples that
would need to have a sodomy,
license also.
I By the ballot. I had a com-
ment to make about some
issues that need to be ad-
dressed. There's the issue of
the boats having the right of
way under the drawbridges,
there's the height restrictions,
the airport and the airport
noise. Since it appears that
our elected politicians aren't
really helping out the com-
mon person, why don't we
put this to a vote? Let's see
what everybody thinks; let's
do it the democratic way and
have a vote on it.
Tough luck. My feeling is
that donating land to Habitat
for Humanity is just another
way for the middle class -
my definition, anywhere from
$50,000-$150,000 a year to
share the misery. I'm sick and
tired of these social programs.
I can just see Section 8 hous-
ing what they used to call it
- or some kind of govern-
ment program, for somebody
with five or six kids who does-
n't do anything but drink all
day long and live off welfare,
and let their kids run around
and cause a lot of problems
for people. We don't need that
type of housing and that kind
of thing in Venice. With the
high tax rates and what things
cost, we should be trying to
attract people that are upper
class and upper-middle class,
and we shouldn't have to pro-
vide housing for people who
have never gotten off their
butts and worked in their
entire lives. There's a ton of
people like that in this coun-
try, and we're importing peo-
ple like that. Everybody's on
some social program.


A rational approach to growth control: None


HERB LEVINE
GUEST COLUMNIST


What is it about growth
control that the average citi-
zen of Venice, Sarasota Coun-
ty or the state of Florida does-
n't seem to understand?
The need for growth con-
trol is in the newspapers
every other day. It's even com-
ing out of such unlikely places
as North Port.
But going back to the
original premise there is
one thing about growth con-
trol that average citizens do
not comprehend. They just
don't comprehend that it's
really a soothing balm, a con
job and another method used
by the growth machine to
have those average citizens
forget about what is happen-
ing to their community and
concentrate on something
else. Anything else.
I thought I had lots of street
smarts, but all of those com-
mon-sense descriptions ap-
pealed to me at one time:
Control growth ... smart
growth ... growth manage-
ment, etc., and many more of
the same until one day I real-
ized that none of them works
very long. They were simply
not designed to do that. They
were designed to sound good,
pacify the public and then go
back to business as usual.

So far, so good. It does not
surprise me people would
want to bring to our attention
this modern-day combina-
tion of Drs. Albert Schweitzer
and Tom Dooley.
However, I'm a little sur-
prised that Cocarro mention-
ed one of Farmer's financiers
is George Soros, the money
behind Moveon.org.
Soros is entitled to support
philanthropic endeavors, so
what's my gripe? My gripe is
the roundabout way in which
Cocarro used her article to get
us to listen to her political
points of view, ergo: berating
the Vatican for not supporting
the "movement in South
America" and saying the
George Bush administration
"doesn't believe that tax mon-
ey should free people from
social oppression."
Don't you wonder why we
keep helping impoverished
countries when there's always
some liberal to throw it back
in our faces?

is left slightly ajar, the growth
troops, including some politi-
cians, many bureaucrats,
bankers, developers and all of
the growth organizations, will
keep widening that slight
opening until there's no door
at all. They have done exactly
that in the past and will con-
tinue their efforts to do exact-
ly that in the future. And they
have lots of good sounding
reasons to continue on that
path. Let's look at a few of the
growth myths:
We need growth, particu-
larly height and density, so we
can have affordable housing.
It sounds good but it doesn't
pan out. Even when a per-
centage of the new housing is
put aside as affordable, that
percentage seems to be sold
to another company and then
re-sold at top notch prices. It
happens most of the time.
If we don't grow, we'll
shrivel up and die. Tell that
nonsense to the thousands of
cities that have not grown and
are the envy of their high-
growth neighbors.
The state of Florida is
against sprawl so we have to
have more height and densi-
ty, even though the people of
Venice have stated they don't
want height and density. Not
true, because there is another
choice: no growth.
You can't stop people from
building in the city if they fol-
low the zoning codes. Right
on, but the city can stop an-
nexing more and more agri-
cultural or any other type .of
land and then granting the
developer zoning changes
from agricultural to residen-
tial. It's simple. No more
annexations.
But those people out there
will use our city streets and
our beaches, so we might as

in taxes that comes into the
city, approximately $1.50 goes
out in expenses. Let's split
that 50-cent loss among the
many in the county rather
than our city residents.
What will all of the people
connected with develop-
ment do if growth stops?
Hopefully, many will go back
to doing storm repairs from
last year's hurricane season.
The developers will survive.
There's always another city,
county or state willing to be
ruined.
It all comes down to this.
The growth-control nonsense
just doesn't work for us. It
works quite well for the mem-
bers of the growth machine.
When it's all over and par-
adise has been ruined, they
will leave for less crowded
and more quaint places to
live.
But it doesn't have to end
that way. Our elected officials
have to be told exactly what
we expect of them: no growth.
As the few vacant lots are
filled and residents sell for
many times their original
purchase price, the city cof-
fers will prosper especially
with no new sewer and water
lines to run way, way out
there.
City employees who have
shown their bias for growth
can either mend their ways or
find a bigger city to work for.
It really boils down to this.
It's our city not theirs. We
look at it as a marvelous place
to live. They look at it as a cash
register. It's time they cashed

BUSINESS MATTERS


Mexican restaurant, sports bar are opening .


ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS

El Centenario, a new
restaurant serving authentic
Mexican dishes, is being read-
ied for opening by Ramon
and Esperanza "Hope" Garcia
in the former Cactus Steak-
house at 1185 South U.S. 41
Bypass.
Plans are to have the 220-
seat restaurant renovations,
including new booths, tables
and decor, done in June.
Garcia is hoping to have live
Mexican music and eventual-
ly to open a patio outside for
smokers.
Popular dishes fajitas and
caritas will highlight the 200
items on the menu, and they
will offer carry-out orders.
Garcia was a chef in the
Carolinas until moving his
wife and family to assist their
parents, who operated similar
restaurants in Port Charlotte,
and Punta Gorda until it was
destroyed last summer by
Hurricane Charley. Opening
seven days weekly with lunch
and dinner menus, they plan
on hiring between 10-15
employees for the opening.
Practice golf in the bar
Golf enthusiasts will soon
be able to play their favorite
pastime in all weathers on the
finest courses, including the
famous Pebble Beach, when
the new Outlook Sports Bar,
889 South U.S. 41 Bypass,
near Appliance Depot, opens
with the very latest golf simu-
lator.
The larger premises have
enabled owner Andy Moore
to install this very modern
technology, which includes a
moving screen, details mea-
suring each golfer swing, the
speed and distance the ball
travels and its journey along
the course to the hole.
Moore, originally from


Washington D.C,, but a resi-
dent of Sarasota for the past
50 years, acquired the
Outlook Pub on Venice
Avenue East 20 years ago.
"The move is because
Waterford has acquired this
property and it is to be torn
down. We're working on the
new location and hoping to
open early to mid-June," con-
firmed Moore.
Located in a much larger
4,500-square-foot building,
the new Outlook Sports Bar
will open daily from 1 la.m.-2
a.m. and be designed for fam-
ily activities, with three pool
tables, pingpong and foos-
ball tables, dartboards and
the only golf simulator for
public use throughout the
state.
Southsiders become
Lifestylers
Members of Southside
Club have been assured their
contracts will be honored fol-
lowing the acquisition of the
Venice Southside Athletic
Club at Jacaranda Plaza on
South U.S. 41 Bypass together
with three others in Sarasota
and West and East Bradenton.
All were acquired by St.
Petersburg-based Lifestyle
Family Fitness Centers in a
million dollar deal last week.
The details of the deal were
not released.
The group of four clubs
was launched in June 2000
and has 27,000 members.
"These clubs are a great fit
for Lifestyle Family Fitness as
we continue our expansion
along the west coast of
Florida," said Geoffrey Dyer,
Lifestyle president and CEO.
The company already has
two centers in this area, next
to Sarasota's Westfield Square
Mall and in West Bradenton.
Lifestyle operates 25 locations
in Tampa Bay, Orlando dand
Jacksonville with almost
130,000 members who enjoy
all the benefits of their unique
month-by-month member-
ships.
"Exercise is paramount,
with fitness becoming a pri-
ority as obesity becomes a
greater health problem than
smoking," commented Gina
Bailey, marketing director.
In 1982 Lifestyle was


founded in Lakeland by Geoff -
Dyer when he brought his
family from Australia to
Florida. It is rated as one of
the top 25 fastest-growing fit-
ness companies throughout'
the world.
Premier services allow
members to "club-hop," and
.activities are provided for
kids, plus cycling and tan-
ning. Future plans are to con-
vert the acquisitions to the
Lifestyle look by repainting
and new logos and signs.
Building sold
J & M Express LLC recently
acquired 807 South U.S. 41
Bypass for $640,000 from
Andrew and Dorothy Wind,
trustees. Tenants who have
leases extending a further two
years have been advised they
can remain, according to a
spokesperson who requested
anonymity. Lincare, Allstate
Insurance and Ralph Ruscoe
currently occupy the build-
ing.
Crispers in Venice? Not yet
Following up an inquiry
seeking information on the
possibility of a Crispers
Restaurant opening inVenice,
spokesperson M. Calhoon of
Crispers responded, "Not at
this time, but maybe in the
future."
Publix Super Markets
made the equity investment
in the Crispers Restaurant
concept two years ago. Publix
CEO Charlie Jenkins com-
mented recently, "By the end
of 2005, we will open another
18 stores in Florida, one of
which will be in Port
Charlotte."

BY RACHEL ALEXANDER
STAFF WRIT ER


Giving is the gift that keeps
on growing was the theme of
the Florida Gulf Chambers of
Commerce annual luncheon,
held May 13 at the Boca
Royale Golf and Country Club
in Englewood.
Members of six area cham-
bers, including the newly
established .Punta Gorda
Chamber of Commerce, gath-
ered to hear keynote speaker
Dave Dignam proclaim the
importance of nonprofit
organizations in the commu-
nity.
"Endowed philanthropy is
the gift that keeps on giving,"
Dignam said, "a gift that helps
to keep the nonprofit sector
strong."
Dignam, a member of the
prominent Englewood family
that owns Key Agency, is the
board chairman of the Gulf
Coast Community Founda-
tion ofVenice, Florida's largest
community foundation.
"Today, after nine years of
grant-making totaling $57
million, nine years of opera-
tional expenses, and I think
what we can all agree was a
tumultuous stock market, the
community foundation has
about $185 million in assets

importance of philanthropy
and the vital economic
impact nonprofits make on
communities.

and is growing," Dignam said.
"In a few years, the founda-
tion will have invested in the
community a sum equal to
the original endowment and
still be growing through
investments and donor funds
established at the founda-
tion," he said. "That is the
power of endowed philan-
thropy."
Unconventional
One of the factors that
might change conventional
thinking about nonprofits,
Dignam said, is they employ
more than the federal and
state governments combined.
They generate revenue
that exceeds the Gross
Domestic Product of all but
six foreign countries, and they
employ more people than
agriculture, mining, con-


struction, transportation,
communication, finance, and
"two industries close to my
heart, insurance and real
estate," Dignam said.
He jokingly admitted that
might be hard to believe,
since almost everyone in
Southwest Florida is in the
real estate industry.
"Here's the bottom line,"
he continued. "The nonprofit
sector is a significant factor in
our national economy."
Dignam pointed out that
most people don't realize any-
one can be a giver. He said
you don't have to be a Bill
Gates or a Rockefeller. Then
he gave some examples.
For the hurricane disaster
relief funds, the foundation
received gifts from all over the
world, ranging from $5 to
$10,000, with the foundation
matching each contribution.
The relief fund reached
$525,000.
Dignam said the youngest
donors were two boys, 7 and
10 years old, who donated
their savings.
"The message I want to
leave you with today," he said,
"is that a vital nonprofit com-
munity plays a major role in
the health of our community
and our economy."
Guests of the Florida Gulf
Chambers received coffee
cups shaped like flower pots
filled with packets of seeds,
which appropriately went
along with Dignam's theme
that giving is a gift that keeps
on growing.
Dignam said the founda-
tion will be taking up a new
initiative, promoting tangi-
ble-asset giving to the profes-
sional sector.

Enhanced Web site

BYTOMMYMCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

Thanks to enhanced soft-
ware, citizens can now locate
where sex offenders live with
laser accuracy.
"The enhancements ...
will help parents and law
enforcement do a better job
of protecting innocent citi-
zens across our state," Florida7
DI atinent of Law Enforce-
ment Commissioner Guy
Tunnell said at Tuesday's un-
veiling of the Web site.
Users of the enhanced site

Florida Attorney General
Charlie Crist said the new fea-
ture will allow parents to
search specific areas near their
home, school or neighbor-
hood park, and should greatly
assist parents who are trying to
protect their children.

"We are encouraged to know

result of recent tragic cases
involving several Florida chil-

Understanding false-alarm issues


STAFF REPORT


Alarm systems are meant to
bring a sense of security and
peace of mind when properly
installed. However, poorly
used, installed or maintained
systems can cause significant
problems for both consumers
and police. One study esti-
mates the annual cost of false,
alarms to police departments
nationwide to be at least $600
million.
Several communities in
Florida, like Gainesville and
Cape Coral, have many false-
alarm calls that cost taxpayers
money and divert law en-
forcement officers from real
emergencies. In order to con-
trol false alarms and their
costs, many police jurisdic-
tions are adopting laws and
regulations, from false-alarm


fines to requiring permits or
registrations to install an
alarm system.
Some systems are more
prone to false alarms than
others; however, with a veri-
fied system an operator can
hear and see what is actually
happening during the real-
time break in.
This provides law enforce-
ment with the intelligence,
information'and investigative
evidence to respond to alarm
calls and then later use this
information in court hearings.
Compared to the non-veri-
fied alarm system that has a
90 percent false-alarm rate
and in the same time it takes a
verified system to apprehend
the suspects, the non-verified
system is just dispatching the
police. For more information,

The story of the big birds


EDITOR'S NOTE: The following
is an excerpt from "Talking Eyes," a
new book by Nokomis artist and
writer Ulse Kern.

BY ILSE KERN
GUEST WRITER

Coming from New Eng-
land, where we used to watch
all the small birds, it is an
incredible experience when
one of the big birds in Florida
comes up to you the first
time, standing as tall as up to
your belly button, and looks
right at you!
We had just moved into
our new Florida home on a
small lake with a large nature
preserve next to us and I was
enjoying our backyard view,
when a large bird came sail-
ing down on the lawn and
nonchalantly stalked up to
me. He was about 4 feet tall
and had an enormous
wingspan, it looked like,6 feet
overall. I said "Hello," told
him how glad I was to make
his acquaintance and that he
was beautiful. He tilted his
head, of course understand-
ing what I was saving, and
walked down to the lake edge.
I ran back into the house to
tell my husband, Gunther,
and drag him out to see the
bird. Back on the patio, our
bird friend had come back
with a twig in his beak, which

he placed right in front of my
feet like a welcome present,
and trihen lew ff.
Consulting our bird book,
we decided that our visitor
was a young great blue heron.
His coloring was attractive:
his body was bluish/black,
the long s-curved neck red-
dish/brown and white/yel-
low, ornate with long, slender
plumes; his head white with a
black stripe above his eye
extended into long narrow
feathers at the back of his
neck, waving in the breeze.


Most striking were his eyes:
dark black pupils with a yel-
low ring around them and a
second ring, black, circling
the eye, standing out dramat-
ically on the white head. We
both looked at each other's
eyeballs and established a
friendly bond.
He came back three times
that afternoon, each time
with a new small branch,
placing it on our wood deck at
.the same spot as the first one.
Gunther, as the "expert,"
decided that the heron was in
love with me and that he
wanted to build a nest for me.
I was very flattered.
We named him "Tony" and
he learned his name quickly.
Next morning, having
breakfast outdoors on the
patio and just marveling at
the beautiful Florida sun-
shine, here comes Tony again
with a small branch, bringing
it up to me near my chair.
At that point, I was in love
with him also. Ignoring
neighbors' warnings not to
feed him, I went into the
kitchen and plucked a piece
of skin and some meat off the
roasted chicken (perfectly
done with lemon pepper by
* PublLx supermarket) and
threw it to him. It was accept-
ed with appreciating rolling
eyes.
Out of nowhere, a white,
smaller bird with an elegant
long crest on his head flew in
and landed next to Tony; it
was a brilliant white snowy
egret. He apparently saw the
delicate tidbit given to Tony
and wanted a treat also. So, I
went in the kitchen again and
got two more treats, and
,threw them on_ the lawn in
front of the patio, about 6 feet
apart.
The small egret, we named
him'"Fritzie," snapped one
treat with'great speed, and
dashed over to the other piece
and ate it before Tony could
bend his long neck to pick it
up.
Fritzie was a spirited, dar-
ing and a little audacious bird,
but absolutely adorable. This
scene was repeated many
more times and Tony would '
look a little dazzled when his
treat disappeared in lighting
speed.
Sometimes, Fritzie would
literally dash between Tony's
legs to snatch the food away
from him.
In no time, the word got
around in the bird communi-
, ty that "softies" could be
charmed to feed them, and
they came to occupy our

house.
Two big white egrets came
and were constantly fighting
with each other, sometimes
with bloody results. They def-,
initely were not as aristocratic
as our Tony, and they did not
get any pet names from us.
A family of wood storks
liked our lake and walked all
round and then around again.
They look very funny when
they scratch the lake edge for
food and one of their long
black and white wings is
extended toward the ground
to keep their balance. One of
the storks came up to us to
visit. He stood at our back
step on the wood deck and
looked straight at us. We
explained to him that we are
no longer feeding all the big
birds since there was so much,
food for everyone in the lake,
but that we loved him just the
same. He moved his head
slightly from side to side and I
was sure that he understood.
He then joined his family
again at the lake.
Every few days, the storks
would appear again, and if
there was movement on our
patio, our friend slowly came
stalking up with his long legs
and stood at the edge of our
patio to have a little visit and
talk. We called him "Hans."
I always stopped whatever
I was doing to chat with him,
and he seemed to like to hear
my voice. When I declared the
end of the session and the
urgency to go back, to my
work, he slowly turned and
walked back to the lake. We
never gave him any treat to
attract him to come back to
us.
Sometimes, when I saiw the
family at a distance along the
lake, I called Hans and he
would turn around and walk


up to me. None of the other
wood storks ever came up to
us.
Wood storks are very ele-
gant,; stately, large birds with
white feathers and some
black feathers under the
wings and a black tail. Their
head and neck are bare, dark
gray, crusty looking and they
have a big, long, strong
curved bill. I find them very
interesting and not ugly at all
as some people say. They are
true storks (but apparently
not licensed to deliver
babies); they are close to 4 feet
tall with a 5-foot wingspan.
Their population has
decreased 90 percent since
1930, and they are an endan-
gered species.
Large developments have
reduced their natural habi-
tats; they need water and fish
to survive. A pair of wood
storks and their growing off-
spring are reported to eat 440
pounds of fish during the
.breeding season.
I enjoyed studying the
large birds with the eye of an
artist and decided to draw
portraits of our favorite visi-
tors.
Tony stood motionless for
the longest time on our patio
and just seemed to like to be
near us. He sometimes low-
ered his big wings, spread
them out "to air his feathers"
and even sat on one of the
out-door chairs to do just that
what an extraordinary
sight!
I fetched my sketchpad
and pencil, and told Tony to
stand still while I was drawing
his portrait. He did stand still
until I was finished, and as
soon as I got up, he shook his
feathers and walked off, a job
well done!
Next, I tried to talk Fritzie


Fritzie, the running egret.


into standing still. That was
impossible to accomplish; the
little guy just loved to dash
around in fast motions. A por-
trait was not the right way to
catch his personality, and I
sketched him on the run.
Then it was Hans' turn.
That was easy too; he also
stood frozen long enough to
catch his stately personality,
and I am absolutely con-
vinced that he knew what I
was doing.
Once in a while, a pelican
came to catch a fish, but
never lingered. He liked the
saltwater fish better, and we
made friends with one, sitting
on a log near the Venice jetty
at the shore, and named him
Otto. He was used to being
admired from visitors and sat
motionless while I drew his
portrait.


At the edge of the lake, a
huge ancient trunk of a dead
oak tree stretched its big
branches high above the
scenery and provided a per-
fect outlook post for the big
birds.
An osprey visited us every
few days, surveying the lake
and flying like a lightening
bolt down to the lake, scoop-
ing up a fish and then eating it
with obvious delight on top of
the tree. Once in a while, a
stately eagle with a snow-
white head appeared on top
of the tree and caught himself
a large fish. We were ecstatic
to have this gorgeous bird in
our back yard and admired it
through our binoculars: what
a sight!

Community conversations

planned for next week


Sarasota County Admin-
istrator Jim Ley has scheduled
a number of meetings with
leaders of homeowner associ-
ations and others called
"community conversations."
The Venice area get-together
will be next Thursday, May 26,
from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the
South Venice Community
Center, 720 Alligator Drive.
The invitation is to discuss
innovative ways to consider
our community's future, not
to ponder current issues or
use this meeting to complain

about what is wrong. "I'd like
us to explore how together we
can create the kind of com-
munity that keeps the best of
what we have and encourage
the things we value," Ley said.
The central topics will be:
What do you value in your
community?
What do
you value in
our (county-
wide) com-
munity?
What is
your role in
creating our
community's
Withlin our Ley
South Venice
Civic Association's communi-
ty, I have been pondering how
to answer the question of
value. Certainly we value our
properties, families, history
and our freedoms, but what
about our future as a group of
homeowners?
Our leaders have been
asked to e-mail their thoughts
to me so I can combine them
in preparation for the Thurs-
day meeting. In fact, if you,
too, want to contribute your
ideas, feel free to send them to
me at Ellen9@comcast.net.
If you think you would be
interested in the discussion,
please contact the Sarasota
County Call Center at 861-
5000 in advance.

Candlestick retrieved, husband forgiven


BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR

Cleaning out the garage
and selling items you don't
want anymore: $200. Recov-
ering the family heirloom you
accidentally sold for $1 in the
sale and getting out of the
wife's doghouse: priceless.
Bob Schmidt received a
telephone call from the North
Port Police Department after
someone read in the Sun that
he mistakenly sold his wife's
prized candlestick holder in a
yard sale last weekend.
In addition to begging for
wife Jeannie's forgiveness, the
82-year-old thought he would
try to get back the candlestick
- a gift given to his wife of 25
years by her late mother. So
he offered a reward.
A few days later North Port
Police officer Eric Sineath told
him he would be bringing
over the candlestick.
"The woman who bought
it dropped it off at the police
department anonymously,"
he said. "She told the officer
that she didn't want the re-
ward and offered it to the po-
lice department."
Amazed, Schmidt told
Jeannie she would be getting
back her 150-year-old silver
candlestick.
"She gave me a kiss," he
said. "I'm out of the dog-
house. My friends have been,
teasing me about it."
Kind people
Last week, Schmidt was in
charge of a garage sale at his
home while Jeannie went to
work.
Schmidt gathered items
from the dining room table.
He didn't know that his wife's
candlestick ended up in a box.
"I thought the candlestick

holder was given to Jeannie
by her aunt who died," he
said. "She told me that it was
her mother's. It was given to
her by her mother's mother. It
has been in the family a long
time. They were a gift. She
would never have sold them."
Schmidt said his wife dis-
covered the candlestick was
missing shortly after return-
ing from work. She immedi-
ately called Schmidt, who
thought he was doing the
right thing by dropping off the
rest of the sale items at St.
Francis Animal Rescue store
in Venice, which raises money
for pets.
He quickly returned to the
store to ask if the candlestick
was in the box he donated. He
was told "no." That's when he
thought about the customers
who shopped at his sale.
He suspected someone lo-
cally purchased the item and
might be willing to sell it back
to him. Instead, she just gave
it back.
"We can't thank this person
enough," said Schmidt.
"There are still kind people in
this world."

She has the problem


... but God fixes me


DONNA MARTONFI
RELIGION l '

Have you ever been sud-
denly dropped like a hot
potato by a friend whom you
have loved unconditionally?
Was it especially painful to
you because you bent over
backward to accommodate
their every need and consis-
tently helped to solve just
about every problem in their
life? Did it come as a tremen-
dous shock to you because
you endeavored to make
yourself available at every
opportunity and whenever
possible? Was it a friend who
called every time that they
needed encouragement or a
shoulder to cry on and you
willingly and naturally com-
plied? Did you do just about
everything for them, includ-
ing jumping through a few
hoops?


Well then, take heart, you
are not alone. It has hap-
pened to me too. To make
matters worse, I'm the person
who persuaded this gal to
become a Christian. I was her
spiritual mom. She sat just
two rows in front of me in
church. Suddenly one day
she began going to great
lengths to avoid me. Even
when the pastor would say
Sunday mornings, "Turn
around and great one another
with the love of the Lord," she
would shake hands with
everyone within five pews
but skip over me as if I were
invisible. She would avoid
eye contact and turn her
head with an overly animat-
ed, exaggerated motion. This
went on for months until one
day I couldn't stand it any
longer and I took my purse
and whopped her with. it,
(yes, it's true, I actually did
that) quizzically asking,
"Good morning??? Hello???"
Weeks later I smacked her
with my two-pound Bible
(you might be shocked but
she wasn't), thinking I'd surely
get some sort of reaction'out
of her that time. She never
even flinched.
At that time I was not a
person to confront a situation
head on so my solution was

MARTONFI from page 6B


to just let sleeping dogs lie,
but God had a totally different
plan. He decided that I should
get a card and write her a note
asking her to forgive me. I
couldn't believe it. Forgive me
for what? Whatever she has
perceived that you had done,
was his response.
It was the hardest thing
that I ever did. It totally went
against every fiber in my
being. I hated to submit and
to bend to an arrogant,
haughty spirit but I knew that
I had to obey God.
You just can't imagine how
overjoyed I was when I got to
church the next Sunday and
realized she was not even
there. I was elated. I was cer-
tain that God would not
expect me to grovel but that
he merely wanted to see if I
would obey him.
You certainly wouldn't
have a far reach to imagine
how I felt that evening when
the Lord asked me to read my
note to her in front of the
entire congregation. I argued,
"Lord what will people think
that I did to her? Lord, why
would you humiliate me in
this way? How can you do this
to me?"
It was no use. I knew, that I
knew, that he would not let
me off the hook, even though
I did not understand why. I
came to the front of the
church, my face beet-red, my
eyes fixed on the floor and
mumbled, "Dear friend,
Please forgive me for what-
ever I did to offend you.
Whatever it was I am sorry, it
was not intentional. I would
be very willing to discuss it
with you, but if you don't
wish to talk about it, I under-
stand. Your friend in Christ,
Donna."
The church was silent for
probably an entire five min-
utes. There was a holy hush.
Then one by one people start-
ed to get up out of their seats
and go over and hug and love
on one another. You could
hear their muffled sobs. Tears
flowed unashamedly. God
was healing hurts and recon-
ciling hearts. It continued for
three consecutive Sundays.
It amazes me how we
can ignore scriptures like
Matthew 5:23 and 24 (NKJV),
which say, "Therefore if you
bring your gift to the altar, and
there remember that your
brother has something
against you, leave your gift
there before the altar, and go
your way. First, be reconciled


to your brother, and then
come and offer your gift."
and 1 John 4:20, which says
"If someone says, 'I love
God,' and hates his brother,
he is a liar; for he who does
not love his brother whom he
has seen, how can he love
God whom he has not seen?"
So our obligation is to rec-
oncile our broken relation-
ships privately before God
needs to humble us by asking


us to do it publicly. It doesn't
matter who's right or who's
wrong, we just need to go and
fix it.

Pierce Fund of the Com-
munity Foundation of Sara-

panded its Outreach Program

program is the area's mature
population, providing free

tirement and mobile, home
communities, churches and
senior centers. The Pops in-
vites calls from local activities
and social coordinators to
discuss solo artist perfor-
mances, Pops ensemble per-
formances, or to book a series
of concerts featuring its many
talented orchestra members
and ensemble groups.
As part of this Outreach
Program, The Pops also en-
courages group registration of

turing students from Love-
land, the center for the devel-
opmentally handicapped, at

Entitled, "Lights! Camera!
Loveland!, this year's theme is
movies and will feature songs,
dances and routines every-
one's-favorite classic films, put

bles or soloists. An Outreach

niversary with artwork creat-
ed by one of the many talent-
ed high school artists in Man-
atee and Sarasota counties.
Possible applications for the

STAFF REPORT


In dollar's roi

iBYARLINE BLEECKER
GUEST WRITER

The dollar is sinking like
the Titanic.
Faced with high prices in
Europe and the Mediter-
ranean, American travelers
might cast about for an eco-
nomic lifeboat. But as the dol-
lar dips, the cost of food, lodg-
ing and transportation keeps
rising."
To the rescue comes Cruise
Lines International Associ-
ation, which recommends
taking a cruise so that you can
use your ship not only as your


igh


seas, cruises help keep budget afloat


lodging, but also as trans-
portation between the conti-
nent's major cities.
The association's sugges-
tion comes as no surprise.
After all, the organization is
the marketing arm of 19 lead-
ing North American cruise
lines.
Still, it makes a good point.
Terry Dale, the associa-
tion's president and CEO,
says: "Cruise vacations in
Europe insulate travelers
from sticker shock abroad.
Compared with land travel,
European cruises are a better
value, because guests pay for


transportation, meals, enter-
tainment, transfers and other
costs in advance in dollars,
avoiding out-of-pocket costs
charged in euros."
I remember nearly falling
off my cafe chair in Rome
years ago, when my husband
and I were presented with a
$75 bill for two spaghetti
lunches sans wine at an
eatery near the Pantheon. A
slew of charges had been
added for bread, for sitting at
an outside table, even for cut-
lery and water. And in Paris,
our espressos at a Mont-
martre cafe overlooking the


City of Light set us back more
than $20.
And that was when the
dollar was strong.
If you're searching for an
economical way to absorb
Europe's treasures, cruising
might actually be a bargain.
CLIA-affiliated lines that
will sail in Europe this sum-
mer include Carnival, Celeb-
rity, Costa, Crystal, Cunard,

wegian, Norwegian. Coastal

There is a transition occur-
ring in the nonprofit world of
Sarasota: Volunteer Connec-
tions, founded in 1976, will
have a new home at Senior
Friendship Centers, and by
June 2005, a new name the
Friendship Volunteer Re-
source Center.
This expansion of the vol-
unteer program at Senior
Friendship Centers will as-
sure continuity of programs
for volunteers and services for
area organizations and agen-
cies.
Senior Friendship Centers
currently operates county-
wide volunteer centers in Lee
and Charlotte counties. Lee
County's Friendship Volun-
teer Resource Center coordi-
nates about 2,100 volunteers,
including the Retired Senior
Volunteer Program, through-
out the county serving more
than 80 area organizations.
The Charlotte County office
of Senior Friendship Centers
oversees RSVP in that com-

"We see our role as sup-
portive in this important rela-
tionship," said Senior Friend-
ship Centers President and
CEO Bob Carter, "encourag-
ing volunteerism and serving
as a central clearinghouse for
recruitment throughout Sara-
sota County."
The 300-plus organiza-


tions currently served by Vol-
unteer Connections cover a
wide range of opportunities
for volunteers from high-
school-age youth to senior
volunteers. This new struc-
ture will encourage expanded
community collaborations
and partnerships throughout
Sarasota County.
"The move is a win-win,
for the volunteers, the organi-
zations they serve and for the
community as a whole," said
Carter.
Volunteer Connections
currently has 4,500 volunteers
with about half offering active
service to our community. For
the first quarter of 2005, these
volunteers have provided just
less than 12,000 volunteer
hours translating to more
than $200,000 in volunteer
services to local agencies.
"The board of Volunteer
Connections is incredibly
pleased, excited and honored
to transfer our programs to
Senior Friendship Centers,"
said Volunteer Connections
Board Chair Michael Bel-
sham. "This reduces expen-
sive infrastructure costs and
allows more resources for
direct services to the commu-
nity. The transition should be
seamless and meaningful."

both. Because right this very

CLIA's Dale offers a few tips
to keep in mind:
If you're looking for value,
dine as much as possible
aboard ship. Meals and enter-
tainment are included in the
cruise fare.
Book an air/sea package
that includes transatlantic air.
and ground transfers. Cruis-
ers can realize significant sav-
ings compared with the cost
of booking these components
separately.
Purchase sightseeing
tours from cruise lines. If you
buy them from local ground
operators you'll pay in euros.
Extend your vacation
with optional hotel stays be-
fore or after the cruise. Again,
hotel costs are prepaid in U.S.

BIRDS fronmpage 1B


and holding a small plate
with some chicken skin for
our bird friends, the osprey
suddenly came flying down
like a dive-bomber with its
wingspan almost as wide as
both of my outstretched
arms, barely missing me. I
dropped the plate and fell on
the ground and was pretty
scared. That ended our feed-
ing sessions holding food in
our hand; we threw some tid-
bits once in a while way over
on the grass, standing close to
the back door.
Tony, the great blue heron,
and Fritzie, the dashing
snowy egret, were daily visi-
tors and we decided to reduce
the treats so as not to make
them too dependent on us
feeding them.
It was a beautiful May
morning when Tony flew in
with a fishing hook in his left
leg and a 5-foot to 6-foot fish-
ing line dangling from it.
We panicked and called
the Pelican Man Bird Sanc-
tuary for help. A dedicated
volunteer came with a frozen
fish supply and a snarl at-
tached to along stick. We were
instructed how to position
the circular line and place
food in the center and then
rope him in. It was difficult
work. Tony was skittish and
getting weaker, but would not
let us catch him.
We were worried sick and
felt responsible for teaching
him to trust humans too
much, and because of that, he
got too close to a fisherman
and swallowed a hooked fish.
Instead of holding the bird,
and calling for help to get the
hook out, this angler just cut
the line and let Tony fend for-
himself.
What a terrible thing to do!
I will never forget Mother's
Day Sunday. We were getting
dressed to go out for dinner,
Gunther just coming out of the
shower and I in my slip, when
we noticed Tony flying to the
big oak in our back-yard, get-
ting the fishing line entangled
in the branches, struggling to
get free, and finally falling


down on the grass. We quickly
placed the line trap with a fish
in the middle and hoped for
the best.
It was obvious that Tony
was starving and his left leg
was getting discolored and
infected. He hopped into the
trap circle and swallowed the
fish; we quickly pulled the
line with the long rod and
managed to get the sling
around his neck. We got him!!
Gunther hesitated to pull
too strongly; the bird with
incredible strength pulled the
rod out of Gunther's hand
and flew off wobbling in the
direction of the lake and drag-
ging the heavy rod and line.
About 100 feet over the lake,
Tony ran out of breath and fell
into the lake, struggling to
stay afloat. "0 my," I scream-
ed, "he is drowning!"
Without hesitation, Gun-
ther in his underwear, which
he quickly managed to put
on, ran into the shallow lake
and worked his way toward
the bird.
I was now not only worried
about Tony but also about
Gunther's safety: There was
this killer snapping turtle,
who knows what kind of
snakes, and could there be an
alligator hiding in the bushes?
While my mind was racing
for a solution, the bird man-
aged to gather enough
strength to fly up and off in
the direction of our club-
house across the lake. Gun-
ther paddled furiously to get
out of the lake, and I observed
Tony dragging the heavy rod
and line and getting it entan-
gled at the gazebo fence,
hopelessly stuck.
That was great; we now
could catch him and relieve
him of the hook and line.
Racing into the house, grab-
bing a set of towels and string
and some .tools, Gunther
jumped dripping wet into the
seat of his precious Mercedes,
(which was an absolute "ver-
boten" thing to do), and we
raced at 60 mph in a 15-mile
zone around the lake, blow-
ing the horn wildly.
That was enough to alert
the whole neighborhood of


Otto, the pelican.


93 houses. Everyone came
running out and followed us
to the clubhouse.
Here was Gunther in his drip-
ping wet underwear and I in
my fashionable lace slip run-
ning out of the car toward the
caught bird.
All our neighbors adored
Tony and had enjoyed watch-
ing him. The sentiment went
high; all eyes were on us while
we managed to throw a towel
over Tony's head: I held him
tightly, and Gunther, who at
one time wanted to be a sur-
geon, operated on him, pull-
ing the fishing hook out back-
ward and applying antibiotic
ointment on the wound.
Tony was completely still,
while I kept talking to him in a
reassuring tone.
The operation was success-
ful, we let Tony fly off, and loud
cheering and clapping, could
be heard all around the lake.
We suddenly realized how
ridiculous we looked, raced
back to the house, took a sec-
ond shower, got dressed and
then joined our friends for the
Mother's Day dinner. They
forgave us for being so late
after they heard the story of
the rescue.
Tony did not show up for a
few days, and when he ap-
peared, he dragged his discol-
ored leg, which was not heal-

ing, and the infection seemed
to get worse. He was skittish
and stayed at a distance, but
kept looking at us as if he
were pleading for help. We
consulted the Pelican Man
again, received a supply of
frozen fish and antibiotic
pills, which we placed in the
mouth of the fish. Tony came
and took the fish with the
pills, always staying quite a
distance away. He looked
ungroomed and sick. We real-
ized that we should have
taken the bird to the Pelican
Man's Sanctuary in Sarasota
and not let him fly off after
removing the fish hook.
We kept feeding him for
about a week without notice-
able improvement of his con-
dition, and one day, he did
not come back. All we could
do was, hope that he found
his way to the Sanctuary as
some birds are reported to do.
If only I could explain to
that angler who cut the line,
leaving the hook in Tony's leg,
how much the bird suffered
and how much all of us suf-
fered with him!
We do not feed the big
birds any longer, but still have
conversations with them and
watch them coming and go-
ing to and from our lake.
Only Hans still visits regu-
larly for an extended chat.

It's hurricane shutter season in Florida


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Following last year's record
spate of hurricanes that hit
Southwest Florida in late Au-
gust and September, coming
within 16 miles of Venice,
many area homeowners are
considering taking action be-
fore the onset of the 2005 hur-
ricane season. They might be
too late for this season.
Even though the fiercest
storms do not usually hit until
August or September, the
supplies of hurricane shutters
and similar products is
already in short supply.
"Everyone is panicking,"
shutter dealer Phil Jansen
said. "They are making up for
the last 20 years."
The product that seems to
be in shortest supply is .Clear-
'guard, clear plastic panels'
that slide into tracks mounted
above and below or on either
side of openings such as win-
dows and doors.
"Production is so thin right
now, we are having trouble
getting product," he said.
Fortunately for Venice resi-
dent Atty Moore and his fam-
ily, it was not that way last fall.
As hurricane season "ended
Moore decided to shutter his
house against future storms.
The storms had come a little
too close to Venice and Moore
said he wanted to be prepared
for the next season. That sea-
son is now upon us.
Wanting to be safe but not
totally in the dark, Moore
contracted with Jansen, own-
er of Jansen Shuters, to install


the Clearguard panels.
Moore's two-story house,
with 10 large openings on the
front side alone plus at least
as many openings on the
back side facing the pool cage
area and others on the sides
of the house was one of Jan-
sen's larger projects. Moore
ordered his hurricane shut-
ters at just the right time. Had
he waited until this month he
might be in for disappoint-
ment.
In addition to a shortage of
the Clearguard product, pric-
es have gone up nearly 30 per-
cent Jansen said.
"I have 200 panels on or-
der," he said. "They offered to
send me 20 but that won't
even do one house.
"The industry is over-
whelmed so people should
start thinking long-term, like
next season. People waited 20
years to do this. They need to
sit back and plan for next
year."
Planning should consider
the various options Jansen
said. His company offers a full
line of products. In addition
to the Clearguard and stain-
less steel panels, he sells roll-
ing shutters, accordion shut-
ters and armor screen, a flexi-
ble hurricane abatement sys-
tem.
Costs vary according to the
product selected. A typical
2,200-square-foot house with
20 windows and doors cov-
ered in Clearguard'might cost
$6,000. The same house pro-
tected with galvanized steel
panels might be one-third
less expensive.


Bahama shutters could be
$500-$1,000 per shutter, the
higher price would be for
those that can withstand a
large missile impact, Jansen
said.
Jansen said that so-called
hurricane film is a misnomer.
It might keep the glass from
shattering but does not pre-
vent an implosion that could
rip the frame from the house.
Impact glass windows are
expensive but another alter-
native. Jansen said it might
make sense to change out a
home's small windows, re-
placing them with the new
hurricane windows but then
buy a shutter system to pro-
tect larger windows and door
openings. Jansen's company
does not change out win-
dows, even though he sug-
gests that alternative to peo-
ple.
Whatever product is cho-
sen, one outswinging door (at
least 3 feet wide) must be left
uncovered for an escape
route, Jansen said..
"It is best if it is a solid door
without glass," Jansen said.
"Dead bolts on doors are


important. The most danger-
ous opening in a house is
double swinging doors that
open in, even if they have
drop latches on the stationary
door."
Jansen said those doors
need to be fully covered, at a
cost of approximately $800.
Flat tracks can be used on the
stoop or the tracks can be put
on either side of the door and
the panels installed horizon-
tally.
Armor screen is a flexible
hurricane abatement system
that is easy for customers to
put up and take down them-
selves. That is another consid-
eration for people when they
select a system for their
home.
"We used to offer put-up
and take-down service," he
said, "but we were way over-
committed."
Jansen Shutters is at 402
Substation Road. He has been
in the building industry since
1973 and has concentrated
on hurricane products since
2002. For more information,
call 484-4700.
