Council wants to hear people talk


The members vote 7-0 to draft a policy allowing
ex-parte communications despite the city attor-
ney's warnings.

ASSISTANT EDITOR

Council member Fred
Hamneut is tired of telling
people he cannot talk about
what Mike Miller wants to
build next to downtown Ven-
ice.
Most residents do not want


to hear Hammett say, "It's
against the law to talk to you,"
- especially those opposed
to the project that would
include seven-story buildings
on 3.5 acres along the In-,
tracoastal Waterway.
That may not be Hammett
or any council member's
response for much longer. By


a unanimous vote Tuesday,
Venice City

policy to al-

Anderson's recommenda-

ing.
The 1993
Florida Su-

Anderson Snyder and
Jennings rul-
ings aimed to eliminate back-
door deals by requiring all
communications' to take,


place in a public meeting.
These rulings also attempt to
give supporters and oppo-
nents equal opportunity to
speak.
Unfortunately, this prohi-
bition also applies to citizens
who just want to express their
opinion informally. Council
members are tired of telling
people not to talk to them.
"It's not right. It's just not
right," Hammett said. "We're

YMCA has 50,000 reasons to love VRMC
The South County Family YMCA is $50,000 closer to building a new Venice facility, thanks
to a Venice Regional Medical Center gift toward the YMCA's Building a Strong Future cam-
paign. "We are most pleased to support their efforts to have a new, modernized facility
for the community to use," said Melody Trimble, VRMC CEO. The new 55,000-square-foot
facility will be located on the current 17-acre campus on Center Road, and is scheduled for
completion in fall 2006. "Their generous gift toward our building campaign typifies the
community partner they are and will be," said Ken Modzelewski, YMCA president and
CEO. Showing off the symbolic check presented by VRMC are, from left, Modzelewski;
Dave Williamson, CFO of VRMC and YMCA board member; Fred Hammett, Venice City
Council and YMCA board member; and Trimble.

Children are entering mid-
die age by the time they, hit 17.
Today's children could be
the first generation to live
shorter lives than their par-
ents, experts say. For the first
time in history, according to
the Centers- for .Disease
Control, the life expectancy of
a generation of children may
be going down.
"This is in part the result of
years of increased food avail-
ability," said Leanne Litterell,
a nutritionist and registered
dieddan for dihe Peace River
Regional Medical Center.
Childhood obesity is tied
to multiple health problems
- hypertension, Type-2 dia-


betes and coronary heart dis-
ease that are usually asso-
ciated with older adults.
The CDC's survey also
indicated the number of bver-
weight children ages 6-11 has
doubled in the last 30 years,
and the number of over-
weight children 12-17 years
old has tripled.
The report stated this has a
direct unpact on the onset of
chronic illnesses that typical-
ly appear in people in their
40s.
"This is a truth that we are
just coming to terms with.
The good thing is we're recog-
nizing it," Litterell said. "Peo-
ple can eat 24 hours a day,
and until recently the choices
were not always nutritionally
sound."
A quick dinner, to a busy
parent, is often a ride through
the drive-through.
"Typically, the 'fast food'
items that children are pre-
sented with areehigh-fat and
high-sugar foods," Litterell
said.

It's official:



Red tide is back


Southwest Florida has hardly had a break
from the annoying algae since the
first bloom was discovered in December.


BYGAVIN OFF
STAFF WRITER


Scientists discovered an
intense red tide bloom Friday,
a day after thousands of bot-
tom-feeding fish were spotted
swimming south just feet off
Manasota Key's beaches.
A bloom with more than 1
million red tide cells per liter
of water was detected be-
tween Stump Pass and Pine
Island, said Cynthia Heil,
senior research scientist for

Heil said the Florida De-
partment of Agricultural and
Consumer Services found the
bloom. The department is in
charge of opening and closing
commercial shellfish beds.
The state closes the beds if
more than 5,000 red tide cells
per liter are detected.
According to Heil, Stump
Pass measured 89,000 cells
per liter, while Gasparilla Pass
measured 1 million cells per
liter. Pine Island Sound re-
corded. the highest concen-
tration of red tide cells with
1.3 million per liter.
Previously, the bloom was
stationed off Sarasota, said
Richard Pierce, director of
ectotoxicology at the Mote
Marine Laboratory.
Pierce said Thursday's
bizarre mass of fish includ-
ing grouper, snapper, red fish,
sea robins and crab was


likely trying to avoid a red tide
bloom, perhaps located off-
shore in deeper Gulf of Mex-
ico waters.
"Obviously, it appears
they're moving away from
something," Pierce said.
.Steady stream
Misy Christie, environ-
mental specialist for Char-
lotte County, said she spotted
dead fish in the Intracoastal
Waterway and a major fish-
kill off Little Gasparilla on
Thursday.
"You couldn't avoid it,"
Christie said. "There was a
steady stream of dead fish."
Red tide is the naturally
occurring microscopic algae
Karenia brevis, which forms
in the gulf and releases toxins
deadly to fish, birds and
marine mammals. It is also
harmful to humans.
Mote studies have found

ing from Cedar Key to ~lei

By Feb. 23, it expanded
from northern Sarasota
County to Fort Myers, killing
thousands of fish off
Manasota Key.

contained more than 90 mil-

City ready to get moving on Caspersen Beach


AVWP presentation opens
the conversation on the annexation
of county land along South Harbor Drive.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


There will be problems
with fulfilling grant require-
ments at Caspersen Beach
park unless Venice reopens
annexation talks with Sarasota
County.
; At least that's the opinion of
city council members.
Terry Redmond, president
of Venice Area Beautification
Inc., recapped the progress in
creating Venetian Waterway
Park during Tuesday's city
council meeting. The 10 miles
of concrete bike path along
both sides of the Intracoastal
Waterway could be finished
within a year.


Regarding the southern
portion of Venice island, both
Redmond and council mem-"
ber Fred Hammett voiced
concern that a lack of perma-
nent restrooms at Caspersen
Beach Park could jeopardize
grants. Without an agreement
from the county, Venice water
and sewage lines cannot be
extended to the park because
it is outside of city limits.
Hammett pointed his fin-
ger at the county for failing
to act and suggested that city
staff initiate talks.
"We need to move forward
on this," Hammett said. "This
could really become a prob-
lem."
Sarasota County would not


lose ownership of the Cas-
persen Beach area if it were
annexed. Venice would as-
sume law enforcement and
utilities service responsibili-
ties.
Communication appears
to be the
biggest prob-
lem. Within
the past two
weeks, a pri-.
vate engineer-
ing consultant -
has contacted
the city and
asked for its
commitment Calamaras
to extending
water and sewer service down
to Caspersen Beach park.
However, no county official
has even brought this up.
Sarasota County must either
ask to annex the land into
Venice or formally ask that


Valencia dispute headed to mediation


utility service be extended
outside of city limits.
Neither of these has hap-
pened, according to the city.
Besides that, making pe-
destrian and bicycle lane
improvements along South
Harbor Drive is the next
major project for VABI. The
road is a narrow two lanes
surrounded by undeveloped
habitat with barely enough
room for two cars once it
leaves city limits.
"It's time to reopen
that (annexation) dialogue
again," Mayor Dean Cala-
maras said.
New fire station
Council approved a
$157,000 architectural con-
tract to design a fire and EMS
station on Laurel Road to
serve North Venice. This will
finally give paramedics and
firefighters at Station No. 3 a
permanent home after using
a site at the Eastside Waste-


water Treatment Plant the
past two years.
Fire Chief Mike Johnson
expects the design phase to
last about six months and
construction another 12
months after that. BMK
Architects will design a
12,000-square-foot facility
that includes four bays for
emergency vehicles, public
meeting rooms and meet
hurricane shelter standards
for city staff and family
members.
Fire Station No. 3 will be on
Laurel Road just east of the
main entrance to Venetian
Golf & River Club.
The city was given the 4
acres of land by J&J Homes
back in January as part of a set-
tlement agreement with the
private property owner, the
city and the Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency to
resolve permitting problems

property, known as the former

L_._The appointment of a,
special magistrate to mediate
the dispute between Sarasota
County and the Valencia
Development Company is
expected to help to decide
the matter by early fall.,
Valencia filed a writ of
mediation in June to compel
te county to reopen its peti-
tion to rezone the Flying
Bridge restaurant property in
Osprey. Within a few days of
that filing, Valencia also filed
suit against the county board
of commissioners in the 12th
Circuit Court with the same
objective.
Both the writ and the law-
suit are aimed at allowing
Valencia to rezone the 2.38-
acre waterfront property
from commercial marine to
residential single-family with
a marine park. That would
allow development of a $32
million condominium com-
munity.
Valencia's original petition
to build 14 luxury townhouses
in three, three-story buildings
failed in a 2-2 vote by the
commissioners last April. A
later request by Valencia to
reopen the petition was
denied by the commissioners.
"We continue to be. opti-
mistic," said Thomas G.
Whealey, Valencia's president.


"Our neighbors in Osprey are
continuing to support us, and
we ate trying to work with the
county to effect a compro-
mise."
Ramping up
Richard Davis ofTampa has
been appointed the mediator.
A mid-September date for a
hearing is anticipated. The
views of both sides will be pre-
sented. Principals and others
will testify.
Writs of mediation are
based on the 2003 Bert Harris
Act. Adopted by the state
Legislature, its intent was to
protect private property in-
terests against "inordinately
burdensome government
regulations." The act allows
property owners to sue a local
government that "unduly
burdens its property with
changing regulations."
When Valencia filed the
writ and the lawsuit this
spring, Whealey said he
thought the mediation hear-
ing would occur before the
matter, was heard in court.
The act stipulates that the
parties have 10 days to agree
on a professional mediator
who is not a member of the
judiciary. He or she has 60
days in which to schedule a
hearing.
Last month's purchase by
the county of an 11-acre
waterfront property about


300 yards east of the Flying
Bridge site on Blackburn
Point Road contributes to
Whealey's optimism, he said.
The land will be used for pub-
lic boat ramps. The $16 mil-
lion purchase was the first by
the county for that purpose
in almost 10 years.
Whealey had described
himself as "perplexed by the
failure of the commissioners
to respond to our question of
just what services we can
provide to satisfy the public
need for waterfront access"
when the BOCC denied
Valencia's petition on April 13.
Valencia had proposed
improving the waterfront and
providing 14 deep-water coy-
ered boat slips for townhouse
owners and another 24 avail-
able for sale to owners and
the public.
Together with the adjoin-
ing Bellagio condominium
development, Valencia began.
dredging a deeper channel
from the marine parkbetween
the two properties out to the
Intracoastal Waterway.
Whealey said then that
Bellagio's plans included con-,
struction of a fuel dock and
restaurant, both of which will
be open to the public. A "high-
and-dry" structure,containing
186 boat racks will be built on
the Bellagio property. Racks
will be for sale to Bellagio
owners and the public.


Dent achieves CERA designation


STAFF REPORT


Sarasota County Supervisor
of Elections Kathy Dent will
be.designated as a Certified
Elections/Registration Ad-
ministrator, the highest'pro-
fessional achievement, in cer-
emonies conducted by The
Election Center Friday.
CERA designation is
achieved only through a
nmulti-year course of study
conducted by The Election
Center's Professional Educa-
tion Program and completion
of 12 core courses taught by
the master's in public admin-
istration faculty of Auburn
University ranging from
ethics, -to voter registration
ahd elections law, planning,
communications and voter
participation, among others.
The intent of the program
is to professionalize the man-
agement of voter registration
and elections administration


in promoting and preserving
public trust in the' democratic
process.
"This is the
highest desig-
nation avail-
able to elec-
tions and
voter-registra-
tion officials,"
said R. Doug
Lewis, direc-
tor of the cen-
ter. "Of more Dent
than 21,000
elections and voter registra-
tion officials throughout
America, this graduating class
of 46 professionals takes us to
320 election officials who have
achieved the CERA status. To
be. among the first 500 certi-
fied in America is an outstand-
ing accomplishment.
"Sarasota is indeed fortu-
nate to have Kathy Dent as
one of the top designated
professionals in America.


Obtaining and maintaining
CERA status means that she
has committed to a career-
long process of continuing
education to improve the
electoral process in Florida
and the nation," he stated.-
Derit, who was elected in
2000 and again, unopposed,
'in 2004, said "This is one of
the most challenging educa-
tional programs I have ever
participated in. We covered
both legal and ethical ground
and became more aware of
how important our role is in
maintaining and protecting
democratic principles.
"It is my great honor to
ensure that the public's will
is accurately reflected in our
elections," she said. "My goals
have always been to remove
as many barriers as possible
to participation in the demo-
cratic process and to ensure
that all the votes are counted
accurately."

Rhetoric heats up over appeal


Florida environmental regulators removed Little
Sarasota Bay from an "impaired waters" list. The
decision could complicate Sarasota County's
ongoing efforts to restore Midnight Pass.


BYJACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


Some Sarasota County of-
ficials have been caught up in
the political tug-of-war over
efforts to restore Midnight
Pass, as was evidenced during
last week's decision to appeal
a state finding that Little
Sarasota Bay is no longer on
a list of environmentally de-
graded bodies of water.
On July 27, the county
commission voted 4-1 to ask
that the Florida Department
of Environmental Regulation
rescind the decisionbecause
it could affect issuance of
dredging per-
mits to open
the coastal
inlet that used
to separate
Siesta Key
from Casey
Key.
In a back-
and-forth ex-
change, com- Thaxton
missioner Jon
Thaxton said the natural re-
sources staff was "disingenu-
ous" to suggest that an appeal
of the state's decision to drop
Little Sarasota Bay from an
impaired waters list was in
the public interest.
"How did we determine
this was in the public inter-
est?" Thaxton asked Roger
Rasbury, an environmental
services project manager.
When Rasbury responded
that he had received e-mail
letters, Thaxton snapped, "If


you want to know what the
public wants, then ask it."
The exchange didn't stop
there. When Theresa Connor,
the county's water resources
general manager, reported
that a July 26 letter from the
state agency appeared to
separate the health of Little
Sarasota Bay from efforts to
obtain Midnight Pass per-
mits, Thaxton again took
issue.
"It's very clear from (previ-
ous) correspondence that the
staff wanted to change state
rules for impaired waters and
make them fit our objective,"
he said. "The same science
should apply'for every water
body. What was suggested is
not sound science, but differ-
ent science."

Missed by 1/10 th
Thaxton has historically
opposed the restoration of
Midnight Pass. He believes'
the Little Sarasota Bay eco-
system has changed and
adapted to the coastal inlet's
closure in 1983 by becoming a
productive spawning ground
for fish.
In the July 26 letter referred
to by Connor, Jerry Brooks, a
state environmental official,
explained that while chloro-
phyll levels in Little Sarasota
Bay fall short of the threshold
for an impaired water body, it
should not affect the county's
efforts to restore Midnight
Pass.
"Many concerned citizens
have contacted us to suggest


)0
a connection between tlM
impaired waters assessmeRi
and the pending permit appWi
cation," he stated. "The twit
issues are independent 4o
one another, and involve very
distinct authorities and cons
siderations." iCl
Commissioner David Mil1M
said the county is replacing
old septic
tanks that '''
d r a in
into Phillippi
Creek with "
sewers so '
Little Sarasota
Bay nutrient
levels can be
reduced, and
its efforts Mills II
shouldn't D"
penalize the project to
restore Midnight Pass. .c b
"The governor and cabinet
said we had to take actioxi
and remove the septic tankseT
Mills said. "Now the state
says Little Sarasota Bay is
clean by 1/ 10th of a point. Yet
people who live down (by thel
bay) tell me that sometimes
they can't be outside because
of the odor."-'
In its application to restore
Midnight Pass, the county
has requested permission
from federal and state au-.
thorities to remove 360,000
cubic yards of sand from the
former inlet, an adjacent said
trap and a tidal channel thtf
would connect with the Guff
Intracoastal Waterway.
If approved, a direct cut
would be dredged from tl*
Gulf of Mexico to the Intr-'
coastal Waterway. It would
affect 3.5 acres of mangroves
and 12.9 acres of sea grabs
beds, so an enviro-nmental
mitigation plan would b.
necessary.

Landmark on the market again


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINESS! COLUMNIST


Has the Landmark been
sold?
"The property is in play,"
according to George Huhn,
Remax commercial Realtor.
He 'confirmed an unsolicited
offer has been made by a
major developer who is al-
ready very active with several
projects downtown and on
the interstate, wanting to
build a mixed-use office and
retail seven-story construc-
tion.
Broad, ,discussions, have,
taken place and the zoning
ordinance situation for a
seven-story building to re-
place the former restaurant


is under review.
Zoning is currently under
discussion by developer
Mike Miller, president, of
Waterford Construction,
with attorney Jeff Boone, in
relation to their proposed 9-
acre waterfront mixed-use
project on the north side of
the bridge.
These developers; bring a
wealth of experience and, as
soon as the machine is in
place, they have the ability to
get deals done, according to
Huhn. The present owners


have no emotional attach-
ment to the building, Huhn
said, adding that their inten-
tion in purchasing it was to
make money.
However, they admit a
commercial project of this
size is a little beyond their
expertise and theywould wel-
come a joint project, but will
consider a sale. The property
is currently being marketed at
$3.25 million.
The former Landmark res-
taurant closed suddenly in
January 2004, and was ac-


quired in September of that
year by Atlantic Shores Realty
of New York for $1,625,000.
The owners decided not to
have an auction of the con-
tents,'bout generously donated
furniture and kitchen equip-
ment to the Italian-American
Club, Jewish Community
Center and American Legion
inVenice.
The Landmark occupies
what is considered a prime
commercial site on Tamiami
Trail south of Venice Avenue
Bridge.


EWD plans reuse for Thomas Ranch


They


BY GAVIN OFF
ASSISTANT ENGLEWOOD EDITOR

The Englewood Water Dis-
tict is in the opening stages of
providing more than 600,000
allons.of reuse water a day to
the Thomas Ranch.
The contract with Fourth
Quarter Properties, the ranch
owners, becomes effective in
November 2006.
According to the agree-
ment, the EWD would provide
te reuse water to two 1,800-
home developments. One
development is scheduled for
2009, the second for 2012.
Both lie west of Manatee
Qpmmunity College, on oppo-
e si des,of U.S. 41.
| "You have to start a couple
gears in advance in order to
g t the water there when
ey're ready for it," said
PWD chairman Paul Phillips.
n Water district officials will
ieet with members of the
orida Department of En-
onmental Protection next


week to discuss the project.
EWD Technical Support
Manager Jay Linden said the
EWD signed the agreement
with Fourth Quarter Prop-
erties more than three years
ago.
Thomas Ranch stretches
from the River Road-U.S. 41
intersection to near the Ve-
netia development in South
Venice. It totals some 15,000
acres.
Phillips said new pipes
would carry the, reuse, water
about three miles from the
Boca Royale Golf Course to
the proposed Thomas Ranch
developments. Fourth Quar-
ter would pay for the con-
struction.
Once built, the infrastruc-
ture will allow the water dis-
trict to fill two large ponds
with reuse water. Irrigating
with treated reuse water pre-
vents homeowners and rec-
reational sites from using
water pumped from the
aquifer. That water can then


be saved for drinking.
"High-quality drinking
water shouldn't be fed to
grass," Phillips said.
The EWD charges the sites
15 cents per 1,000 gallons of
water used.
Myakka Pines Golf Club,
Lemon Bay Golf Club, Oyster
Creek Golf Club and the
Englewood Sports Complex
already use reuse water.
Lemon Bay High School is
debating whether to use it.

At least that's been the
legal interpretation byAnder-

more than a decade that out-

The 1993 ruling assumes
that outside conversations

Florida is one of the states
that does not mandate recess
or physical activity in public
schools. The amount of phys-
ical activity allotted for chil-
dren during school varies
within each school.
"One answer for children is
that physical exercise needs
to start early and become a
built-in, long-term lifestyle
change," Nanolick said.
With working parents and
concerns about safety, kids


and verbal discussions within
the confines of a public hear-

according to Anderson.
The city attorney reiterated
at the council meeting his
goal is to keep the city out of

and 20 percent on their pur-
chase of prescription drugs."'
I The program does not pro-
vide health insurance. What it
allows members to do is pur-
chase their drugs through
"pharmacy benefit manage-
ment" companies, which are
referred to in the industry as
PBMs. In the case of Sarasota
County, the PBM will be
Caremark Rx.
"There will be no charge to
the participating counties,"
said Sam Marcinko, a county
employee benefits manager.
'~We're going to jump on board
and have a contract ready for


the commission's considera-
tion when it meets the second
week of September."

Already on board
Some county employees
already purchase their pre-
scription medications through
Caremark Rx, which is one of
the top three PBMs that nego-
tiates savings -from major
drug manufacturers and
pharmacies. Others include
Medco Health Solutions and
Express Scripts.
PBMs became major play-
ers in the lucrative United
States prescription drug mar-


ket when millions of Amer-
icans began to purchase 90-
day prescriptions from mail-
order pharmacies in Canada
to save money.
According to Standard and
Poor's research reported in
Newhouse newspapers,
Americans annually spend
$250 billion on prescription
drugs. Big chain pharmacies
such as CVS, Rite Aid and
Walgreens have formed their
own PBMs to cash in.
"We'll have some discus-
sion about where to distrib-
'ute the discount prescription
cards," Mlarcinko said. "possi-


bly through our county li-
braries and the public health
department. The program is
simple, and should help peo-
ple who are self-employed or
part-time workers."

Almost everywhere
While the PBMs dictate
which pharmacies are net-
work members, Marcinko
said the Caremark Rx cards
.will work almost everywhere.
"The only pharmacies that
typically don't honor them
are small mom-and-pop drug
stores," he said.
Card holders with ques-


tions about the program will
be given a toll-free Caremark
Rx number to call.
"This will be popular with
people who either aren't get-
ting prescriptions filled," he
said, "or those who are paying
full price. But the card won't
save everyone money."
The Pharmaceutical Care
Management Association, a
trade group lobbyist, claims
PBMs reduce prescription
drug costs by.25 percent for
card holders, but their critics
charge they often fail to pass
along the savings negotiated
with large drug companies.


NewYork Attorney General
Eliot Spitzer has sued one of
the largest PBMs Express
Scripts for allegedly inflat-
ing the cost of prescription
drugs purchased by a state
employee's health plan and
diverting millions of dollars in
manufacturer rebates.
Similar charges have been
brought in a federal lawsuit
filed against Caremark Rx in
Nashville, Tenn. It alleges the
discounts and rebates negoti-
ated with drug manufacturers
and pharmacies violate fed-
eral self-insured employers'
health plan laws.

BY GAVIN OFF
STAFF WRITER

1 The Sarasota County Plan-
ning Commission approved
the rezoning petition of two
properties off Pine Street on
Thursday, adding 67 multi-
'amily units to the road.
Owner James May is seek-
ing a rezoning from one unit
per acre and one unit per five
acres to 13 units per acre.
"The existing zoning is not
consistent with the Future
-Land Use designation," said
commissioner John Fellin.
'This rezoning is appropri-
ate."
The planning commission
approved both petitions
'unanimously. They'll now go
before the Sarasota County
commission for final ap-
proval.
According to county docu-
ments, May is planning to
build 31 units on 2.4 acres of
vacant land near the intersec-
lion of Crestwood Road and
lPine. The building plan will
likely consist of two condo-
mniniums, an office and a
'pool. Parking will be under-.
neath the building, May said.
Thesecond site, located on


Pine Street just north of
Morningside Drive, will
house 36 units on 2.83 acres.
The buildings will rise 35 feet
high.
"This is in relatively close
proximity to Englewood
Community Hospital," Fellin
said. "I think it will be a great
asset to provide that type of
housing to hospital employ-
ees."
The property, which is cur-
rently home to a single-family
house, falls close to scrub jay
habitat.
May said he already sub-
mitted the necessary paper-
work to state environmental
agencies, and they approved
a possible development.
A survey of all threatened
and endangered species on
the two properties, however,
must be completed prior to
construction.
The planning commission
also included a stipulation
that the buildings' architec-
ture be consistent with the
Englewood Town Center's de-
sign standards.
The standards establish
rules for building design
around the Dearborn Street
area.

Paving the way to cost-efficient roads


A resurfacing technique that has had limited use
in the county will be employed to improve nearly.
40 miles of roads.


STAFF REPORT


When workers begin resur-
facing nearly 40 lane-miles of
county roads later this
month, they will employ a
new method of "micrb-sur-
facing" that will extend the
life of these roads by up to 10
years while allowing the
county to use its operating
dollars more efficiently.
"It will last as long as an
inch of (traditional) hot-mix
asphalt and it costs substan-
tially less," said Rob Maggard,
owner of Florida Highway
Products,.Incu On,July,26, ,the
board of county commission-
ers awarded an approximate-
ly $761,000 contract to the
Bartow-based company to
micro-surface roads in north-
ern and southern parts of the
county.
Micro-surfacing is a modi-
fied cold-mixture paving sys-
tem. It uses a product made
of fine granite material and
asphalt emulsion, which is a
combination of asphalt, wat-
er and an emulsifying agent.
Unlike traditional asphalt,
it does not require a petrole-
um solvent, and in most cases
can be used without addi-
tional heat.
According to the Asphalt
Emulsion Manufacturers As-
sociation, this results in ener-
gy savings. The AEMA says
that asphalt emulsions also
produce little to no hydrocar-
bon emissions, so they are
environmentally friendly.
Micro-surfacing has other


potential benefits as well.
Maggard maintains that it
provides a texture that in-
creases skid resistance, a cru-
cial advantage during Flori-
da's rainy season. He added
that it resists rutting, and
because it can be applied
with continuous-load pavers,
roads are often reopened to
traffic within one hour of
resurfacing.
Sarasota County engineer
Franklin Twumasi said the
process is most successful on
relatively newer roads that
have minor,or pnostructural
damage.-Appliedoni dhe right
road, it can extend its use by
years, he said, allowing more
money to be used for badly-
damaged roads that are better
candidates for traditional
hot-mix asphalt.
In Sarasota County, the
mix was first used in 1995 on
Mission Valley Boulevard in
Nokomis and in the Pine Lake
subdivision in Englewood.
"The roads in both of these
areas have held up quite well
since they were micro-sur-
faced almost 10 years ago,"
said Twumasi. He added that
River Road in Venice was also
micro-surfaced in 1997.
Florida Highway Products
has micro-surfaced 25,000
lane-miles of road in Florida,
where 80 percent of its busi-
ness to municipalities has
been repeat business. This
summer is, the first time the
process will be used in
Sarasota County on such a
wide span of roads at one

LISTEN TO fOUR DENTIST
Occasionally a patient will insist that a painful tooth be "pulled".
Although it may be that your .dentist will recommend exactly that,
please listen to his/her advice before you insist on a particular
treatment. The advice could very well save you time, unnecessary
expense, and give you a result that is far superior to that which could
be achieved if your suggested procedure was followed.
Your dentist is a skilled professional who has probably seen the
results of whatever condition you are presenting many times. He/she
has had vast experience in achieving the kind of results you would
want. New techniques and materials make professional advice
essential.
What once doomed a tooth to extraction may now be treated. in a
simple and comfortable way. The loss of one tooth may initiate a series
of problems which could require extensive treatment, unnecessary
time, reduced function and expense.

Pocket bike racing is catching on at speedway I


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR -


One of the current crazes
reaching these parts is pocket
bike racing.
Standing from 2-to-3
feet high, they might .look
like a kid's toy, but don't let
the appearance fool you.
They are actuality scaled-
down miniature motorcycles
that can reach speeds ap-
proaching 50 miles per
hour.
While you may.see pocket
bikes out zooming around
just about anyplace, they are
not street legal and should
only be raced in a controlled
arena.
An ever-growing group of
pocket bikers have taken
their act to the Figure 8
track at Charlotte County
Speedway in Punta Gorda.
At a venue like CCS, track
officials oversee the races
and a safety crew is on hand
if someone spills.
That hasn't happened yet
in pocket bike racing this
spring at the Punta Gorda
track.


Pocket bikes come in a
variety of colors, shapes and
sizes.
The lure of pocket bikes is
their affordability, their size
and their speed.
We already talked about
their speed. They handle
surprisingly well even with
a full-sized adult riding
them. Most bikes weigh less
than 50 pounds and can be
toted about like a suitcase.
The smaller ones are 38
inches long and 2-feet high.
The larger ones are 47 inches
long and 3-feet high. The
engines are two-stroke and
four-stroke and range from 49
cc to 100 cc.
The best part is the
price.
Dave Osteen of Off Road
Motorsports in Arcadia said
small bikes can be purchased
for as low as $280 and the
superbikes can be had for
$850.
Osteen has sold a number
of the- pocket bikes being
raced at Charlotte County
Speedway.
"They're a lot of fun," said
Osteen, who also builds race


cars. "They're made in China
like just about everything
else these days.
They last a long time if you
keep good oil in them.
Replacement parts are easily
available. The best thing to
do is buy two and tear one
down for parts."
Osteen can be reached at
863-990-2679.
Glenn Falanga and Joyce
Girico of Cape Escape in
Cape Coral have also sold a
number of pocket bikes now
racing at Charlotte County
Speedway.
Charlotte County Speed-
way closed for the summer
starting in mid-July but will
reopen for the fall season
on Labor Day.
There are three divisions
of races one for water-
cooled two-stroke, one for
air-cooled two-stroke and
one for four-stroke super-
bikes.
"The most popular are
the two-stroke superbikes,"
said Falanga. "They run from
$550 to $750."
Girico can be reached at
239-243-1080.

Catch a little "Bass Fever" at these largemouth fishing areas


When the going gets
tough, the tough go fishing.
And those looking for a chal-
lenge use their bait to tackle
Florida's best known freshwa-
ter fish, the largemouth bass..
This monster of the fresh-'
water-world can weigh in at
20-plus pounds and, has
become the Sunshine State's
most popular freshwater
game fish.
'. "People like its aggressive
attitude. Largemouth bass
will go after almost any kind
of artificial lure or live bait,
and they strike with explosive
force," said Wes Porak, FWC's
largemouth bass specialist.
"In fact, the value of the
largemouth as a sport fish
has prompted a .movement
toward catch-and-release
fishing in many areas."
Porak said spring is the
best time of year to catch
bass, when fish move into
shallow water to spawn.
Spawning may occur as early
as January in extreme south
Florida and as late as May,in
the panhandle, but March
and April are peak months.
You can find these "buck-
etmouths" and, other black
bass species in almost every
body of freshwater in Florida,
so with more than 7,500 lakes

Boater's World Marine
Center, located in the Bird
Bay Plaza on the U.S. 41
Bypass, will present more in
its continuing series of free
fishing and boating seminars.
On Aug. 18, Joseph John-
son will give tips about com-
mon sense flats fishing tac-
tics. On Aug.' 25, Mark
Nichols, the creator of DOA
Lures, will talk about them.

to choose from, anglers face a
tough decision about where
to fish.
To help,narrow down that
list, FWC fisheries biologists,
recently selected their top
black bass fishing holes for
2005.
They are. in no specific
order: ;.
Lake George: The second-
largest lake in the state, Lake
George is one of the premier
largemouth bass fishing lakes
in central Florida. Hot spots
on the lake include Juniper,
Salt and Silver Glen Spring
runs along the western shore.
You can reel in trophy bass
during the spring spawning
season using live shiners, or
try deep-diving crankbaits
near old dock structures
along the northeast shore
and off Drayton Island.
Stick Marsh/Farm 13 Res-
ervoir: This 6,500-acre reser-
voir has become synonymous
with trophy bass fishing.
Located near Fellsmere, west
ofVero Beach, it has become
one of the hottest bass lakes'
in the country. Plastic worms,
spinnerbaits, crankbaits, soft
jerkbaits and top-water pro-
peller baits are sure to catch
any largemouth's eye, but-
wild golden shiners are the


variety of associated permits.
The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) will also offer
refunds to 'eligible persons
who purchased recreational
licenses at the regular price
between May 24 and June 30
- the time between the gov-
ernor's signing the license
into law and the time it took
to get computers and license
vendors ready to make .it
available.
A bill sponsored by Rep.
Will Kendrick and Sen. Jeff
Atwater created the license
that covers $83.50 worth of
license and permit fees.
"We hope this new license,
in some small way, sends a
thank-you message to the
brave men and women who
risk their lives to protect
America and preserve our
freedom," Kendrick said.
The Military Gold Sports-
man's License is available at
tax collectors' offices only.
Applicants must present a
current military ID card plus a
Florida driver's license or
orders showing they are sta-
tioned in Florida as proof of
eligibility.

West Lake Tohopekaliga:
This 18,810-acre lake
grabbed national attention
in 2001 when professional
.angler DeanRojas broke the
all-time B.A.S.S. tournament
record for a total weight with
a catch of 108 pounds of
bass. Anglers targeting tro-
phy bass will find success in
the spring using live golden
shiners inshore near native
vegetation or topped-out
hydrilla. North Steer Beach,
Brown's Point and Goblet's
Cove are popular fishing
spots on the lake, and fish-
ing: Shingle Creek and St.
Cloud Canal can be out-
standing when flow is pre-
sent through these tribu-
taries.
Lake Kissimmee: This
35,000-acre lake is sure to give
your rod and reel a workout. A
2004 survey showed anglers
experienced an excellent
catch rate of 0.54 fish per
hour in spring. Strong winds
associated with last year's
hurricanes cleared vegetation
from some areas of the lake,'
which allows anglers to fish


May 24 and June 30, eligible

Venice YMCA training site.
All swimmers interested in
improving their skills are
welcome.to attend.
The clinic will meet Mon-
day through Thursday for two
weeks. Clinic times are 4:30-
5:30 p.m. for 6-10 year olds
and 5:30-6:30 p.m. for swim-
mers 11-15 years old.

and Lemon Point and Grassy
Island are examples of some
of the areas impacted by the
storms. Fly fishermen %will
enjoy success wade-fishing
long the miles of shoreline
surrounding this. central
Florida lake.
Rodman Reservoir: Drive
east of Gainesville and south
of Palatka to access this prime
largemouth bass habitat. The
best technique for catching
trophy bass is to use wild
shiners, but anglers will find
success using a variety .of
baits around river channel
bends, from Kenwood to
Cypress Bayou, as well as
areas in the main pool.
Lake Tarpon: Fish ranging
in size from 12 to 16 inches
are plentiful in this 2,500-acre
Pinellas County lake, but
quality and trophy fish are
present in good numbers too.
Anglers will find most success
flipping or pitching plastic
worms. along canal and bul-
rush edges. Offshore bass
fishermen who target ledges,
humps, coontail and eelgrass
beds can lure in some fish
using shad-imitating jigs,
crankbaits, jerkbaits and top-
water baits.
Lake Weohyakapka: Com-
monly know as Lake Walk-
in-Water, it could be renamed
Lake Reel-in-a-Lot. Anglers
frequently catch up to 25 bass
a day, with several ranging
from 4 to 8 pounds. The lake
also produces many trophy

year. Pitching, live wild shin-
ers and flipping soft plastic

OUR VIEW



If you've been wronged, name the culprits


If Congresswoman Katherine Harris has a
beef with some Florida newspapers, she
needs to name them.
Harris, who is running for a seat in the
U.S. Senate, went public recently about what
she says was unfair treatment by state news-
papers. She accused those newspapers of
doctoring photos of her in the 2000 presiden-
tial election flap. She said the photos made
her appear as if she had on too much make-
up. That, Harris, suggested, led to jokes on
national TV and ridicule that hurt her image.
Give Harris credit; she did not bring up the
criticism on her own. She was reacting to a
question from nationally syndicated talk show
host Sean Hannity about whether her


"Republican darling" image bothered her.
Hannity opened the door for Harris to take a
shot at the "liberal" media, and she went for it.
Harris said: "I'm actually very sensitive
about those things, and it's personally
painful." The Longboat Key Republican said
her image, and some of the things said about
her, are "outrageously false."
She said people make fun of her makeup
because newspapers colorized her photo-
graph.
It's not the first time Harris has pointed
the finger at newspapers for her perceived
image problems. In January, she told the
Associated Press that "the jokes about my
appearance it's the computer-enhanced


photos."
The Associated Press responded by re-
minding Harris it has strict rules against doc-
toring images, including making sure the
color balance is correct.
We at the Sun newspapers generally are
not that pure. While we do not purposefully
distort photos, a lot of Photoshop editing go-
es on to get what the photographer or photo
editor thinks is the right color balance.
Two or three computers later we make
plates and the pressmen adjust color to get
what they think is the proper balance across
the page.
There is nothing nefarious here. However,
pictures are frequently not exactly what the


camera saw.
A politician with the normal amount of po-
litical paranoia, suspicious of the media, may
think it is all a liberal or conservative plot.
We believe Harris needs to clear up the
issue before she begins her run for the U.S.
Senate. She should step forward and name
the newspapers she believes wronged her.
Give the newspapers an opportunity to reply
and defend themselves. '
Cutting a wide swath through the reputa-
tion of Florida's professional journalists gives
little credibility to her accusations. Harris has
often felt newspapers treat her unfairly. Now
she has the chance to prove it.
Name the names.


Hurricane Dennis


brings gas pains


CHARLIE CRIST
GUEST COLUMNIST


After Charley, it was ice and
generators. After Frances and
Ivan, more of the same.
But after Hurricane Dennis
whopped Florida in early July,
the No. 1 complaint from con-
sumers was about gasoline.
An overwhelming 1,900 out of
just more than 2,000 com-
plaints to the Attorney Gen-
eral's Price-Gouging Hotline
were about gas prices.
Now a new report helps
explain why gasoline prices in
Florida can abruptly increase.
The main reasons, according
to the authors, are strong
demand from consumers and
supplies kept so tight that the
slightest disruption can send
prices soaring.
A "cooperative atmos-
phere" within the oil industry
deters companies from com-
peting aggressively over price,
but the report found no evi-
dence of unlawful anti-com-
petitive practices.
"Express collusion on price
is not necessary because each
company recognizes .that
with tight supply each would
be better off with -higher
prices and, given inelastic de-
mand, .. consumers would
have little choice but to pay
those higher prices," it says.
The report focuses on a
spike in Florida gas prices in
early 2004. The analysis does
not explain what happened
much later during Dennis.
But it does paint an informa-
tive, if complicated, portrait of.
the oil business and how it
affects Florida consumers..
According to the report,
prepared by Keith B. Leffler,
an economics professor at the
University of Washington,
and Peter K. Ashton, a consul-
tant and expert on the oil in-
dustry, Floridians buy about
23 million gallons of gasoline
a day at more than 9,000 gas
stations. Consumption of gas-
pline in Florida has been go-
ing up nearly 3 percent annu-
ally in recent years, nearly
twice as much as nationally.
Demand is up because the
population is growing. Also,
incomes are increasing, and
when people make more
money they are more willing
to spend it on gasoline. An-
other significant reason is that
many people drive fuel-ineffi-
cient SUVs.
Most of the price of a gal-
lon of gasoline is attributable
to the cost of crude oil 73
cents per gallon in 2000, $1.08
in late 2004 and $1.36 in early
2005. The report looked at


other components of the
price of a,gallon and found
that between 2000 and 2004
refining on average added
about another 21 cents, stor-
age about 6 cents and retail
sale about 13 cents. Taxes
added another 48 cents or so.
The main reason for the
spike of early 2004 was a
sharp increase in the cost of
gasoline coming out of re-
fineries. In May 2004, prices at
gas pumps in Florida shot up
to $1.94 a gallon,, about 50
cents more than at the begin-
ning of the year. Added costs
attributable to refineries
amounted to most of the in-
crease, before prices dropped
back down by the end of the
year.
.. Why? The answer appears
to be mainly a lack of refiner-
ies, leading to an inability to
increase supplies quickly,
plus low inventories of gaso-
line available to consumers.
"By carrying lower inven-
tories, refiners and whole-
salers have, in effect, trans-
ferred the risk of short-term.
supply disruptions away from
themselves and placed this
risk (and consequent price
effect) squarely on con-
sumers," the report says.
"The reductions in average
inventory levels make con-
sumers much.more suscepti-
ble to price spikes. Unlike the
mid- and late-1990s, there is
little cushion of supply to
meet any temporary supply
problems. With no flexibility
in the system, if demand in-
creases beyond expected lev-
els and/or supply. becomes
tight, the response is an in-
crease in price."
Eight big oil companies
control most of the produc-
tion 82 percent at U.S.
refineries. No -new refineries
have been built in this coun-
try for 30 years, and the exist-
ing facilities are operating
practically flat-out.
"These very high utiliza-
tion rates imply essentially no
remaining flexibility in do-
mestic supply to counter any
other supply or demand fac-
tors leading to price .increas-
es," the report says.
What's more, oil producers
keep inventories lower than
they used to, as do many
other industries, in order to
reduce storage costs. Sophis-
ticated computers track sup-
ply and demand. Gasoline is
meant to arrive "just in time."
The oil companies save about
$3.6 million a year by storing
less gasoline in Florida than a
few years ago.
"From an average of ap-
proximately 18 days of supply
in 1997, the Florida average
fell to only 11 days of supply
during the first four months
of 2004, hitting an all-time
low of 7.4 days in February
2004," the report says.
Disruptions a barge ac-
cident, a refinery fire "now
inevitably lead to large price

LETITRS FROM OUR READERS


No bandshell or concert hall? Shameful


Editor:
I agree wholeheartedly with Bob Vedder's comments regard-
ing the gazebo in West Blalock Park.
Would it not have been better to instead construct a large-
enough bandstand to accommodate the Venice Symphony, the
Venice Concert Band, large local choral groups, Venice High
music organizations, dance groups, etc., and that would
enable occasional outdoor programs to be presented in a
beautiful setting?
-There was no input, to my knowledge, from local perform-
ing groups prior to the decision to construct. and place this
small gazebo in the middle of the park, where audiences sit. Of
course it should be in the western section of the park. .
In 1998 a proposal for the construction of a bandshell in
West Blalock Park was submitted, to the Sarasota County Parks
& Recreation Advisory Board, which unanimously recom-
mended approval. Letters of support from dozens of cultural
and civic associations were submitted. City ordinances and
legal questions were thoroughly investigated and no problems
were encountered.
Why, then, was this project not approved and implemented?
Two residents living close to "their" park strongly objected and
this vociferous minority held sway over the then-assistant city
manager (who is no longer with us),who killed the proposal.
That the city of Venice enjoys neither a concert hall nor a
bandshell, as is common in cities across the nation, is shame-
ful. The newly renovated Venice Community Center will be a
great improvement, but it is not a concert hall.
This is certainly an issue that should be revisited by Venice
City Council, and Sarasota County Parks & Recreation. .

Saving manatees
or grabbing power?
Editor:
The more I seethe Save the
Manatee Club stop citizens
from building docks, running
boats or basically doing any-
thing, the madder I get.
I spent half a million dol-
lars developing a manatee-
friendly boat and I can't get
the leaders of the Save the
Manatee Club to even come
look at it. The two celebrities,
Sen. Bob Graham and Jimmy
Buffett, who received all the
free publicity for starting the


Save the Manatee Club have
shown absolutely no interest
in a manatee-friendly boat.
They won't even return a
phone call.
The senator's office even
told me that when he was
running for governor it was
important because it was a
state of Florida issue. Now
that he is a senator it was not
important to him.
I was sliocked. I couldn't
believe my ears, so I faxed
that quote back to them. They
called me and confirmed that
he was not currently interest-
ed in talking about manatee-
friendly boats.
These people have caused
the citizens of this state to
spend millions on legal bills
and destroyed millions in
man hours, yet they will show
no interest in a solution to the
issue they drummed up. That


is wrong.
I was shocked to find out
that the leaders were interest-
ed only in publicity and polit-
ical power. I actually believed
in them and voted for
Graham; never again.
I do believe that there are
good people in these clubs;
unfortunately, I do not be-
lieve that the leadership
wants anything other than
publicity and political power.

1 2A VENICE GONDOLIER SUN WEDNESDAY, AUG. 10,2005


LET 'EM HAVE IT! SHOULD SCHOOL START LATER IN THE
YEAR? CALL US AT 207-1111.

At least I'm not on the phone


Wake up. This is in response to the letter to the editor,
"Venice, a 75-and-older community," in thM Gondolier Sun.
The reader's comment on older drivers not belonging on the
road makes me laugh. I don't know how many people your age
and younger drive while talking on the cell phone, smoking at
the same time, talking and putting on eye makeup or lipstick,
weaving in and out of traffic. I am 75 years old and have been
driving for 57 years and never had an accident or received a
ticket from the police. Can you say the same? As for having
nothing to do, most men your age would have a job and fami-
ly. Venice has as much to do for younger people as any other
city. What about fishing, swimming, bowling, movies, shop-
ping, getting together with friends, sightseeing? Wake up and
smell the roses.


Paying for perks? Schools
Superintendent Gary Norris
says the tax extension is going
to take us to a new level. I'd
like to know, take whom to a
new level?
I think before he starts
blowing off a lot of blah-blah
on how much a tax extension
is needed, perhaps the tax-
payers should be made aware
of all the big bucks being
spent that have nothing to do
with education.
Why do the taxpayers have
to pay for perks such as new
vehicles kept fueled with tax-
payer money, as well as cell
phones being used both for
personal business as well as
work-related business?
If they use an expense
account for meals and lodg-
ing, why can't they eat at Taco
Bell and stay at Motel 6 like a
lot of us low-life taxpayers
have to do?
I'd like to see the Gondolier
Sun publish a list of. the big
mucky-mucks' salaries and a
breakdown of how much is
spent on perks before we
have to read and listen to all
the garbage about how much
a tax extension is needed.
Poor landscaping. Frances


T. Bourne would have wept
over how the appearance of
the entry to the new Jaca-
randa Public Library has been
obliterated, all but six letters.
Crab grass and weeds are
growing through the front
landscape. This certainly
makes a statement about the
Jacaranda community.
Unfair. I would like very
much to know why the trailer
park in Nokomis does not
qualify to have drinking
water. The water there is ab-
solutely impossible to drink.
It is full of iron. You can't use it
for even washing clothes.
Everything around it Pine-
brook, Waterford and all the
upgrade mansions every-
body has it. But I guess the
poor people who live in that
Nature's Park Trailer Park are
not entitled to water. And I
don't think it's fair that the city
can run water every place
else, but they cannot put it in
that park. I did hear that
someone was getting a peti-
tion to run it through Venetia
to Albee Road.
I don't know if that's true; I
haven't been able to contact
that person. I wrote the
mayor. at one time and he

spikes because of domestic
refining capacity limitations
and the lack of domestic in-
ventories to buffer such dis-
ruptions."
When supplies are tight, oil
companies do not jump to
undercut other companies
with lower prices. That's be-
cause the companies are
highly interdependent, rely-
ing on one another with a
profusion of "exchange agree-
ments." These contracts en-
able one company to supply
gas to another company in
one location in return for get-
ting gas from that company in
another location lowering
transportation costs but also
leading to a cooperative at-
mosphere.
And most significantly,
price increases allow the


companies to make more
money. In late 2004, supplies
were finally increased and
prices subsided. But "this de-
lay in the 'competitive re-
sponse' allowed refiners to
reap extraordinary profits
while consumers were forced
to pay significantly higher
prices at the pump."
In the wake of Hurricane
Dennis, the Attorney Gen-
eral's Office is investigating
hundreds of complaints
about a spike in gas prices.
The office issued subpoe-
nas to two companies Tate
Oil Company, a gas distribu-'
tor, and Motiva Enterprises,
one of its suppliers and a sub-
sidiary of Royal Dutch Shell -
to determine why gasoline
prices that they charged gas
stations increased by as much


said you have to get a petition
to do all this. I just think it's
too bad that moneyhas to talk
in a situation like this. I would
like to see some-action, some-
thing done about it in the
near future.
So stupid. If there is going
to be a ban on skateboarders
because of the potential dam-
age they may cause, then
there are a lot of other things
that need to be banned also. I
think there's a much greater
chance of any driver, not just
seniors, causing damage or
physical harm to property
and pedestrians.
According to one Gondo-
lier Sun article I read, there
are no documented cases of
skateboarders injuring pedes-
trians, and only minimal
damage to property that may
have been caused by the
skaters. As far as the people
who are saying that it's for the
skateboarders' own good -
then I guess we should ban
walkers and bike riders ag
well, because they have just as
much chance of getting hurt
as skateboarders do. The Gon-
dolier Sun should do some
investigation into the number
of skateboarding-related car
accidents, versus the number
of accidents involving pedes-
trians and bikers. I think we
all know what the results
would be. At least these kids
are out getting exercise in-
stead of sitting in front of the
TV, getting fat like the rest of
America. I also read that it
was proposed that the kids
need a 2.0 grade average to
skate at the YMCA, which
doesn't make a bit of sense.
Do kids need a 2.0 to play ten-
nis or basketball at the city
courts? Do kids need a 2.0 to
go swimming at the beach? Or
for that matter, does the
YMCA require kids to have a
2.0 to use its other facilities?
Can't wait. I'm so happy to
hear that our tax-supported
county hospital has been
ranked as one of the top 50
hospitals in the entire United
States of America. I can't wait
until they open offices down
here in Venice.


as 30 cents per gallon as
Dennis approached.
A preliminary investigation
found that the number of
Shell gas retailers involved in
price-gouging complaints
was more than double those
about any other retail brand
and that many of the stations
complained about were Shell
stations that receive their gas
from Tate, which buys a por-
tion of its supply from Motiva.
In its investigation over the
past year, the Attorney Gen-
eral's Antitrust Division has
reviewed nearly 240,000 doc-
uments and computer disks
containing nearly 60,000 files
in order to examine recent gas
price increases and deter-
mine their likely causes.

attorney general.


Show me the money


Our city manager's an-
nouncement during the bud-
get part of the July 26 council
meeting that the 1.5-percent
city tax reduction would
probably be the sixth and
final of the promised 10 year-
ly millage reductions came as
no surprise. All of the promis-
es that growth was good and
our city treasury would be
rolling in money can best be
described as using a hose to
wash down the few porker
statues left in Venice. In other
words, hogwash.
The Tischler Report was
probably closer to the truth.
For every dollar coming in
from the usual annexation/
growth sequence, a dollar and
50 cents goes out in services.
Under those conditions, pri-
vate businesses either drasti-
cally raise their product
prices or go bankrupt. Munic-
ipalities look for other income
sources or charge their citi-
zens taxes disguised as some-.
thing else for instance,
enterprise funds, four differ-
ent ones on our monthly
water bills. They raise them
slowly but continuously and
use a good portion of those
funds as if they were property
taxes-
The whole thing starts with
a 10-, a 100- or a 1,000-acre
annexation along with a
rezoning from agricultural to
some form of residential. And
the promises roll in accompa-
nied by numbers and charts"
showing how profitable the
venture will be for all of us.
The only problem is that most
of the charts and figures are
supplied by the developer.
Well, show me the money
- or is that a bit of a problem,
because the money just
seems to have evaporated?
Well, not exactly "evaporated"
but more like "used up." The
number of city employees has


increased by approximately
10 to 12 percent over the last
four years while growth has
supposedly increased by only
4.5 percent
The 4.5 percent figure
comes from the city. Is it true,
or are they only counting
new, full-time registered vot-
ers? What would the growth
figure be if snowbirds were
also added to the 4.5 percent?
Not counting snowbirds in
- the growth figures seemed to
be one of the methods used in
past administrations to keep
the citizens of Venice happy,
no matter what they really
saw with their own eyes. It's
called the "Mushroom Sys-
tem." A system used to keep
us in the dark and feed us
bovine manure.
There are people who ask
several questions, all design-
ed to show the need for future
growth:
"How else can we pay for
the infrastructure mainte-
nance we desperately need?"
They do not mention that if
future growth pays for prob-
lems caused by past growth,
how will we pay for problems
caused by present growth?
And the answer is, "More
future growth and then more,
more, more future growth."
It's called "The Oliver Sys-
tem": More!
"Do you want us to lose
our proportionate share of
the 1-percent surtax because
other cities grow and we
don't?" Ask for the exact num-
bers over the last few years
and you will see that although
our percentage drops, our
amount is larger each year.
The cities that have grown
quickly have a larger propor-
tionate share of the 1 percent
but seem to have more finan-
cial problems.
When confronted with this
logic, our mayor's response
was that our growth is "smart"
growth and therefore good. I.
wonder why we have finan-
cial problems and have to
retort to trickery with the
enterprise funds to pay a dis-
proportionate share of the
G&A payroll.
Again, show me the mon-
ey. And they can't, because it's
gone. It's not here for us to be
rolling in as the majority of
those past councils and man-
agement ,people promised.
But someone is making


enough to roll in. I wonder
who it or they can be?
When the next, the next
and the elections after that
arrive, don't be fooled by the
candidates who piously pro-
claim they are for controlled
growth. They will certainly
know but hope you won't
that there is no such ani-
mal. When the growth door is
left slightly ajar and the
growth rules are just a little
flexible, we will keep spread-
ing out and growing up, up
and away.
And then there's North
Port, whose residents have
been fed every kind of growth
promise ever invented. In-
stead of the normal invoca-
tions prior to city meetings,
they really should pledge alle-
giance to the National Devel-
opment Flag, the one with the
$50 signs in one comer, and
then pass an empty bag their
city has been left holding. The
latest from North Port is a cit-
izen revolt against a 340-per-
cent increase in the fees its
citizens pay to repair roads
and streets.
When a municipality
grows at the North Port rate, it
will spend all of its available
money on running new water
and sewer lines plus on lots of
new personnel and buildings.
.Money that should be used to
periodically replace or repair
the infrastructure is invested
into the Ponzi growth scheme
and it just seems to disappear.
But growth itself wasn't
and isn't the problem. Neither
are greedy developers to
blame. The blame has to be
shared by elected officials
who dream about being nu-
mero uno and representing a
big city, plus the public who
bought into the growth
scheme without ,giving a
thought to the consequences.
And now the officials in
North Port are telling their
constituents, "Show me the
money."
I hope the residents ofVen-
ice all wake up and put a stop
to our Ponzi growth scheme
before we have to show'city
hall lots and lots more money,
and it takes two hours to drive
six blocks to deliver it.

Where was I treated? Right
here, at home in Venice.
First, my gastrointestinal
surgery was ably taken care of
by Dr. Dumas. Then, eight
months ago, I had emergency
open-heart surgery at our
heart center in Venice. My
cardiologist was Dr. Landis,
and the surgeons were Dr.
Mayo and Dr. Fong. I was up

Attorney General Charlie Crist warns of phony car-buyer scam


STAFF REPORT


Attorney General Charlie
Crist has issued a consumer
alert warning Floridians of an
emerging scam in which con
artists target individuals try-
ing to sell their vehicles and
other items. -,
In this scheme, a thief
selects the victim after brows-
ing through classified ads for
a car or other large-ticket
item offered for sale. The thief
pretends to be an interested
buyer from out of town and
sends payment in the form of
a cashier's check, money

order or personal check. The
payment typically arrives in
an amount greater than the
purchase price.
The con artist then asks
the seller to wire the overpaid
amount to another party or
back to the "purchasers,"
sometimes explaining that-
the purchaser lives in another
country and the third party
will use the money to ship the
vehicle overseas. After the.
money is wired, the original
check bounces or turns out to
be a high-quality counterfeit,
and the innocent consumer
loses the money.


"This is yet another exam-
ple of crooks taking advan-
tage of people's trusting
nature," said Ciist.
"Unfortunately, Floridians
must constantly be on the
alert for people who might be
looking for a quick way to
make an easy buck. If con-
sumers are aware of these
scams, they can better pro-
tect themselves.from becom-

firm the buyer's name,
address and telephone num-
ber. Keep in mind that most
legitimate buyers would want'
to see a car before buying it.
Never accept payment
for more than the purchaser
price of the item, no matter
how tempting. Never wire
money to the buyer or a third
party at the buyer's request. If
the buyer insists that you wire
back funds, end the transac-
tion immediately. Legitimate
buyers won't pressure you to
send money.
If possible, accept only
cash. If you do accept a check


for payment, do not turn over
the car until you verify that
the check has cleared the
issuing bank.
Request a check drawn
on a local bank or a bank
with a local branch, which
allows you to make a person-
al visit to make sure the check
is valid. If you cannot get a
check from a local bank, call
the bank where the check
originated and ask if it is valid.
Get the bank's phone number
from directory assistance or
an Internet site you know and
trust, not from the person
who gave you the check.

schedule

to include

this show

Why on earth don't they
give up already and simply
add it to the Asolo's perma-
nent schedule. For the eighth
time, the Asolo Theatre
Company is extending its pro-
duction of "Menopause The
Musical." It is now scheduled
to run through Aug. 21. It was
originally set to close on June
12. Instead, the beat goes on
- and on. But why should
Sarasota be any different than
Boston, Chicago, Cleveland,
Denver, Detroit, Fort Lauder-
dale, Indianapolis, Los An-
geles, Orlando and Phila-
delphia? Consider how many
people now living in Sarasota
are from those other cities,
especially the northern ones.
Productions in Atlanta,

THE IMPORTANCE OF WALKING WHEN RUNNING 10B


Tickin



STORY BY JEREMY ROTTGEN STAFF WRITER --


M


ike Danski works with the Interactive
Metronome to help athletes, strug-
gling students and those with injuries
affecting speech and motor skills.


EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first
in a two-part series about the
Interactive Metronome.
Only one minute remains.
Teethmarks in the pencil
are multiplying as it becomes
gnawed on with anxiety.
Points are being shaved off of
the test grade with every sec-
ond wasted. Tick tock. Tick
tock.
Time's up.
Most of us have been there.
It's the reason we fear test-
taking and everything associ-
ated with it. It's really a ques-
tion of focus and how well we
can apply ourselves to what is
going on right now.
Training people's ability to
focus has been a largely sci-
entific process and until now
there are few things that can
train our brains how to zero in
on what we are doing.
The Interactive Metro-
nome, offered by profession-
als from various fields includ-
ing occupational therapists,
physical therapists, speech
language pathologists, audi-
ologists, psychologists, edu-
cators, psychiatrists, pediatri-
cians and sports specialists
among others, is one tool that'
is making the difference for \
people in every age bracket.
"It's an actual brain-train-
ing device that improves the
connection between, the
mind and the muscle," said
ADI-HD and Interactive Metro-
nome coach Mike Danski.
"The neurons fire and any-
thing that is a movement the
neurons fire in a sequence.
That's how messages get
through our central nervous
system."
Perfect timing
The metronome works
heavy in the executive part of
the brain, which is the pre-
frontal cortex the main
part of our brain that process-
es information. It makes
humans different from other
animals.
"It manages our lives. A
tiger doesn't have to catch a
football flying through the air,
but it has to catch its food, so
it has to motor sequence, but
it can't remember like we can.


It can't think ahead and rea-
son like we can," Danski said.
That part of the brain has a
timing mechanism that
requires our movements be
smooth and precise and peo-
ple have a problem with that
timing mechanism. There are
children who are smooth at
athletics and academics.
Others are not because their
timing is off. They're trying to
tell their muscles to do some-
thing and there's something
wrong with the connection.
"Kids with ADHD have a
tremendous time managing
themselves," Danski said.
"That's where the problem
comes in. The PFC works with
the Basal Ganglia and the BG
works with our movement
along with the cerebellum,
which is our motor move-
ment. The last thing the
metronome works on is the
singular gyrus the emo-
tional handling of our bod-
ies."
Metronome users learn to
manage their movements
better. They become more
skillful as an athlete and gain
control ofimpulsivity or emo-
tional ups and. downs. Chil-
dren with ADHD will see their
frustration level drop. They'll
also see their concentration
improve.
The metronome will train
you to think and to move at
an optimum level.
"Learning is attention, pro-
cessing, focusing and using
it," Danski said. "This motor
sequencing and motor timing
is a very important thing to
learning and memory. People
that have Parkinson's disease
their connections get bad.
What they found through the
research is that a lot of kids
who had trouble with that
had trouble learning."
Coach Danski
Danski was a school
teacher for 10 years. He has
seen the metronome help
kids with ADHD and athletes
become better. His company,
Anchor Achievement Coach-'
ing, helps anybody who wish-
es to take part in the met-
ronome training. He works
with adults, teenagers and


The IM trains not only with the clapping motion, but with the
feet as well.

-and safe this summer


STAFF REPORT


The Humane Society of the
United States offers the fol-
lowing ways to keep your pets
safe this summer:
Make sure that your pet
has protection from heat and
sun (a dog house does not
provide relief from heat) and
plenty of fresh water when
outdoors. Heat stroke can be
fatal for pets as well as people.
With more time being
spent outside, make sure your
pet is always wearing a collar
and identification tag.


Pets sunburn, too use
sunscreen on his nose and
ears if necessary. Pets with
light-colored noses or fur are
especially vulnerable to sun-
burn and skin cancer.
Take care when exercis-
ing your pet. Adjust intensity
and duration of exercise in
accordance with the temper-
ature. On very hot days, limit
exercise to early morning or
evening hours and be espe-
cially careful with short-
nosed dogs and those with
thick coats or who are over-
weight. Asphalt gets very hot


and can burn your pet's paws.
Keep your cat indoors.
Cats who are permitted to go
outside unattended are at an
increased risk of disease and
injury from vehicles or other
animals.
People often fertilize their
lawns and work in their gar-
dens during the summer
months and need to be aware
that certain plants, plant
food, fertilizer and insecti-
cides can be fatal if ingested
by pets.
Pets and pools can equal
disaster enclose pool areas


to prevent free access and
supervise pets when around
the pool.
Take care in choosing flea
and tick control products, as
some can be harmful. Only
use products recommended
by your veterinarian and not
over-the-counter products.
Dogs and cats are at an
increased risk of contracting
heartworm during the sum-
mer. Transmitted by a bite
from an infected mosquito,
heartworm disease can be
fatal if not treated. Check with
your veterinarian for the best


schedule for heartworm test-
ing and preventive medica-
tion for your pet.
Never leave a pet unat-
tended in a parked car. On
warm days, the temperature
in your car can rise to danger-
ous levels in minutes, even
with the windows slightly
open. If you see an animal in
a parked car in the summer,
alert the management of the
shopping area or grocery
store. If the owner does not
return promptly, call local
animal control or the police.
As idyllic and carefree as


it may seem, do not allow
dogs to ride with their heads
out of the window, since in-
jury could occur from flying
debris. Animals should be
kept in the car in a crate. Dogs
may wear a specially design-
ed seatbelt harness.
Dogs should never ride in
the open bed of pickup
trucks. Some states have laws
that restrict such transport. If
forced to make a sudden or
evasive driving maneuver, a
dog could be thrown from the
truck and seriously or even
fatally injured.

The more you know,


the more there is


Segway-ing into Englewood


I'm reading an interesting
book. Of course, it's for kids.
It's a book with all informa-
tion on everything. (Well,
almost.) I've learned so much
and I only am on Page 8.
Did you know that Dustin
Hoffman, Antonio Banderas,
Robert DeNiro, Regis Philbin
and Macauley Culkin have
their birthday on the same
date? It's Aug. 1.
Think how useful that
information could be. No, I
don't mean you should send
them cards. But if some year
on Aug. 1 you are with some-
one and you can't think of
what to say well, these
common birthdays can be a
great conversation starter.
Don't you agree? I don't.
And did you know that the
tallest building in the world is
in Taipei, Taiwan? (Of course,
you did but I do have to write
something.) It's 101 stories
and its height is 1,483 feet. I
would have made it an even
100 stories, but maybe then it
would only be the second-
highest building in the world.
There is so much I don't know.


I also learned that the
deepest lake in this country is
Crater Lake in Oregon, which
is 1,932 feet deep, and the
highest place is appropriately
named Climax, in Colorado,
at 11,360 feet.
Now while all these things
are interesting there are so
many other facts I would like
to know:
Do hummingbirds really
hum?
We know Mother Goose
told stories, but what did her
husband do?
Why do we spell SCUBA
as in SCUBA-diving all in cap-
itals when most people don't
know what the letters stand
for?
What's the name of the
king of Tonga, or of Thailand,
for that matter? I do know that
when Thailand was called
Siam the king was Yul Bren-
ner.
Why is an Academy
Award called an Oscar?
Who invented chewing
gum? And how do they make
bubble gum bubbleable?
Why are there so few men
with red hair who become
well-known actors?
We know the Egyptians
wrote in pictures called hiero-
glyphics, but did they also
speak in pictures?
There are so many things
I'd like to know. At night I lie in
bed pondering the mysteries
of life, like why do we say the
moon came out? Does it go
in? Into where?
Oh, there are so many mys-
teries to life. I supposed that's
what makes it interesting.
And think of all the jobs it
creates for people working to
try to solve them. Of course, if
we did know all of the
answers our heads would get
tired.

ty's web-site at: monksof

BY GARRY OVERBEY
STAFF WRITER

When Jerry and Carol Alex-
ander decided to leave Ohio
behind for a new life in Eng-
lewood, they brought some
very pricey toys with them.
The Alexanders can usually
be seen zipping up and down
Dearborn Street on their
Segway Human Transporters,
which are basically stand-up
scooters that move according
to the rider's slightest motion.
"It's like his big-screen T,"
Carol said.
Touted as the first self-bal-
ancing, electric-powered
transportation device, the
Segway takes up little more
space than a person would on
the sidewalk and can go up to
12 mph.
The Alexanders use theirs
to run errands and acquaint
themselves with their new
community. They rode their
first Segways a year ago dur-
ing a trip to Sarasota for their
one-year wedding anniver-
sary. There, they toured with
Florida Ever-Glides Inc., the
first company in the country
to offer guided Segway tours.
Jerry said it takes about five
minutes to learn how to ride
one.
"It's easy," he said. "But if
you're in fast mode, you can
throw yourself right off if
you're not ready."
They shelled out about
$4,500 apiece for their Seg-
ways.
Invented by entrepreneur
Dean Kamen, who had previ-
ously built a motorized
wheelchair that can climb
stairs, the Segway uses a sys-
tem called "dynamic stabi-
lization," in which gyroscopes
and sensors work to emulate
the rider's movements.
The Segway goes forward
when the rider leans forward;
lean back and the Segway will
stop or reverse. A slight
adjustment of the handle

Jerry and Carol both work-

They say they're both looking


for work here, but Jerry added
that he'd love to buy more
Segways and open a tour
business in Englewood.


"That's my dream," he
said. "It depends on a; lot 'of
things. I think Boca Grande
strikes our interests."

Venice Area Although most homes for
sale are resales, one out of four homebuyers
purchases a new home. Which is better:
existing or new? The right answer of
course, is up to you. Both resales and new
homes offer advantages. Existing homes
are less expensive on average, and are
generally closer to, and enjoy the warmth
and surroundings of established neighbor-
hoods often with mature landscaping.
New homes, on the other hand, offer inno-
vative use of space, greater energy efficiency
and choices of options and upgrades. Every
thing is new and modem.
Most people consider both new and exist-
ing homes before they decide to purchase.

A detail of Roger Skelton's artwork.


TICKIN from page 18
There was no realization on
what they were trying to do.
Walker said it was a way of
helping Alex focus better not
only on the ball field, but in
the classroom.
Improvements are wel-
come in any area of sports
whether it be throwing, hit-
ting or shooting the ball.
Alex's grades did improve,
too.
"People make judgments
based on first impressions,"
Walker said. "One of the first
things I noticed was in my liv-
ing room my wife was
there. Alex was there and
Mike Danski was there. Alex
was focusing on Mike's eyes
and honestly I've never seen
him do that before. There was
an improvement in social


skills. its amazing how many
positive things manifested
themselves."
Alex trained very hard with
the metronome. There were
times when he was coming
home from practice exhaust-
ed. There were plenty of times
when he said he didn't want
to train. But it was the sort of
thing where Alex's father only
saw positive potential in the
classroom and even with
interpersonal relationships
with adults.
"He's no faster than he was
before," Walker said. "But
when I look at his stolen base
record, all the sudden he's
reacting to the teaching that
he's getting and not commit-
ting too soon. He was letting
the ball get on him. That, to
me, has to do with focus and
concentration."


COOL from page 18
The powerful drama car-
ries a surprising message of
hope, love and survival. The
moving plot reveals the story
behind the beautiful artwork
created by the children of the
Terezin Concentration Camp,
during the darkest days of the
Holocaust.

S Q105 AJ653 064 4A85
The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
10 Pass 1o Pass
1NT Pass ?
What do you bid now?
A You would like to tell partner
that you have a five-card major and
about the overall strength of your
holding. However, your hearts are
not rebiddable, especially since part-
ner failed to support you. Bid two no
trump unless you play a new minor
as forcing in this sequence, in which
case bid two clubs.

The bidding has proceeded:

14 Pass 24 Pass
34 Pass ?
What do you bid now?
A Partner has asked you to evaluate
your club holding for game, and it
could not be worse. However, that
does not mean you have to sign off in
three spades. You have a pretty good
raise, and you can tell partner that,
although you have no help in clubs,
you have a sound raise with diamond
values by bidding three diamonds.

What do you bid now?
A This hand has slam potential,
and it probably depends on partner's
heart holding. Therefore, we would
not cue-bid clubs now to show spade
strength. Rather, we would bid hearts
first. Should partner raise hearts, we
will probe for slam with a club cue-

ty double, but here the double is the
equivalent of a takeout double of the
one-diamond opening bid. That
makes your life easy respond two

Walking my way to fitness

with the corporate mouse


J.J. Andrews
BACK OF THE PACK

Few things in this world
can overcome my dislike of
Corporate Mouse Land.
There's the long rides for
every attraction, overpriced
food at every stop and shoul-
der-to-shoulder crowds
made dangerous by oversize
rental strollers parents use
as a bulldozer on their way
to the It's A Small World ride.
And then one is reminded
of what makes the entire trip
worth it. You're standing in
front of Cinderella's castle,
watching the show to crown
the new princess of Walt
Disney World and you notice
that your girlfriend who's
never been to Corporate
Mouse Land has a tear of
joy running down her cheek
as Cinderella walks off with
her prince.
Yeah. I earned major
brownie points with that trip
across Interstate 4. The two
of us spent nearly 15 hours
hopping between three of
the 'Disney theme parks a
week ago in a mad dash to
see everything in just one
day.
I was reminded of just
how much fun we had the
next morning by my creaking
joints and sore muscles. Who
knows how many miles our
feet covered, but all of that,


walking made me nearly as
sore as the day following the
Tampa marathon.
Walking just as
good as running
My intense soreness got
me to questioning how in
shape I really am. With all of
these miles I'm running,
shouldn't I be immune to
tiredness after simply walk-
ing and standing all day long
with only a short break for
lunch?
And then I remember the
benefits of walking and how it
can provide just as much of a
fitness benefit as running.
The only major difference is,
the jarring impact on knees
and muscles are not as great.
Walking was how I started
working myself back into
running shape. After packing
on all of those pounds in my
early 20s, I kept trying to lose
weight by working out ac-
cording to the same fimess
plans I followed as a 17-year-
old on the high school cross
country team.
All it ever led to were
injuries, setbacks and frus-
trations that made me give
my efforts up.
A little more than three
years ago was when I discov-
ered Jeff Galloway's book and
marathon training program
that centered around taking
walk breaks. By taking regular
walk breaks, Galloway wrote
that a person could run as
fast or even faster in a
marathon than without. The
system helped build endur-
ance and reduced the risk of
impact-related injuries caus-
ed by running.
"It's much better to take a
1-minute walk break every
5 minutes than to take a 5-
minute walk every 25 min-
utes. By breaking up your


run early with even a short
break you allow for quick-
er and more effective recov-
ery," Galloway writes on page
17 of his book "Marathon."
On average, a person only
loses about 17 seconds per
mile by taking these regular
walk breaks, according to
Galloway and my own experi-
ence. A runner is able to
maintain a consistent pace
on the 26.2-mile marathon
course and easily makes up
that lost time at the end of
the race by not slowing down
so much.
I have gotten away from
taking so many walk breaks.
Now that I'm in better shape,
part of that ego and competi-
tive pride has slipped back
into my running and I ignore
the lessons learned three
years ago.
And to be honest, my
body was reminding me of
that even before visiting
Corporate Mouse Land.
There's been more soreness
and fatigue in my legs, which
is a sign of overdoing it.:
It's OK to run hard, fast
and long. That is one of the
best ways to improve per-
formance.
But much like your car,
the body isn't meant to be
run at 110 mph every day.
Doing so will eventually land
yourself in the repair shop.
So whether you're new to
running or an experienced
veteran, don't be afraid to
slow your pace down, take a
walk break and enjoy the
scenery.

ly running column appear-
ing every Wednesday. Send

No apples

for these

teachers

Three cheers for Office
Depot, Stein Mart and Crazy
Horse Salon for celebrating
teachers with a back to school
Star Teacher Day.
Jules Calderon, a sixth-
grade science teacher at Sara-
sota School of Arts and Sci-
ence was one of the first in
line to get some bagels and
coffee and her goodie bag of
product samples and discount
coupons at Office Depot.
Manager Linette Barnett
enjoyed meeting teachers
while they registered for dis-
counts and received their
discount cards for 100 free
copies each month.
At Stein Mart Vee Garry-
Chiulli, the agenda consultant
for the store, arranged apple
centerpieces and snacks for
the teachers around apple
centerpieces. Vee even put
flags with the names of South
County schools in the apples.
Albertson's provided huge
baskets of apples for the event.
Stein Mart Manager Vicki
Viccora picked out the win-
ning tickets for prizes along
with assistant manager Chris
DeCroce. Jackie Stewart won
a beautiful globe. Sue Griffith
received a huge box filled with
wonderful scented products
and Donna Griffith goes on a
$100 shopping, spree thanks
to Stein Mart.
Jan and Carl Buckelew
were among the shoppers as
was Micki Carter. Bethany,
Elise and Jackson Beebe did
some shopping. Elise talked
about their summer trip to
Colorado where she rode a
draft horse up the mountain
side. "It looked just like Black
Beauty," she said.
Carol Ostyn and Ashley
Jamison at the Crazy Horse
Salon gave teachers an oppor-
tunity to win a microdermbra-
sion valued at $125. They also
provided coupons for hair-
cuts, highlights and products.
Vicki Lakeman, Joanie
Shultz and Sarah Reynolds
loaded their cars with boxes of
supplies purchased at Office
Depot. The women spent their
own money on all the supplies
as that's just what teachers do.
Three cheers to everyone at
the three stores associated
with making this day special
and giving teachers the op-
portunity to get some nice free
gifts and coupons.

Theresa Baus, the teachers
at Venice Elementary School
and the students get to experi-
ence the fun and frustrations
of opening a brand new
school. While this is the first
official week of classes, the
teachers started moving their
gear in July as soon as their
rooms were available. Setting
up an elementary school
classroom is a monumental
job. For the Venice El staff it
was multiplied a hundred
times over in having to disas-
semble their classrooms and
then get everything back
together again.

The special person of this
week is Carol Ostyn, the
owner of the Crazy Horse
Salon. This nice lady has been
in Venice for more than 20
years. Her clients voted the
salon the Best in Venice.
Carol and her staff recently
conducted a cut-a-thon for
SPARCC and participated in
the Star Teacher Celebration.
Carol Os.yn is one of the
business women who helps
makeVenice special.


Janet Moore and her niece Kiersten Clark did some browsing
at Books-A-Million at the Harry Potter celebration.
