Venice Community Center opens anew


City's largest


opens at VGRC


BY JJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

The crowning jewel of Venetian
Golf & River Club was unveiled Fri-
day morning with the grand opening
of Venetian Nature Park.
A crowd of about 100.people gath-
ered to hear government dignitaries
heap praise upon the WCI commu-
nity for creation of the 70-acre nature
preserve next to the Myakka River.
Part of the development deal with
the city required the 800-foot buffer
next to the river, environmental
preservation and donation of 10
acres for a city park.
And as beautiful as the nearly
mile's worth of trails are, only resi-
dents of VGRC. will gfet to use
Venetian Nature Park.
City of Venice staff and parks
board members have been unable to
give a clear answer as to whether
Myakka River Park being built by
the city- will connect w ith Venetian
Nature Park to create miles of walk-
ing trails.
When asked in an interview about


this, WCI Vice President and Senior
Project Manager Stephen Walker
said WCI's private preserve will not
connect to the public park.
"This is entirely maintained and
funded with private funds. .... The
ones that live here paid for and
maintain it, so they ought to be the
ones to enjoy it," Walker said.
Privatized open space
The city's 10-acre park at the east-
ern end of Laurel Road will be built in
stages because of cost. The first stage,
at about $300,000, should be finished
by the end of the year, according to
last November's city council meet-
ing. There is only enough city money
to build the restroom, unpaved trails,
boat launch, half of the parking spots
and signage.
Once finished, there will be four
small picnic shelters, two play-
grounds, shell-based walking trails, a
parking lot for 37 cars and a nonmo-
torized-boat launch.

City's largest-ever budget unquestioned


Venice leaders believe resident happiness, not apathy, is
what's behind the lack of public participation in the budget
process.

ASSISTANT EDITOR


Just about anybody would want
to avoid answering the phone after
signing off to spend an extra $10
million of someone else's money.
That is, unless you work at Venice


City Hall or as a city council mem-
ber. There hasn't been a document-
ed complaint or inquiry about the,
city's 2005-2006 fiscal year budget
jumping from $64 million to $74
million.

explanation. At last Tuesday's city

Local schools continue to recite pledge 'under God'

Wednesday's ruling by a federal
judge declaring it unconstitutional
to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in
public schools could initiate anoth-
er round of court appeals, but will
have no impact in Sarasota County
schools.
The case was brought by the
same atheist whose previous battle
against the words "under God" was
rejected last year by the Supreme
Court on procedural grounds.
U.S. District Judge Lavwrence
Karlton ruled that the pledge's refer-
ence to one nation "under God" vio-
lated schoolchildren's right to be
"free from a coercive requirement to
affirm God."
Karlton said he was bound by'
precedent of the 9th U.S. Circuit,
Court of Appeals, whicIh in 2002
ruled in favor of Sacramento atheist
Michael Newdow that the pledge is


unconstitutional :when. recited in
public schools.
The ruling is having little effect on
Sarasota County schools, which
continue to recite the daily pledge.
"The ruling does not affect Flor-
ida," said schools attorney Art
Hardy.
Unless and until the U.S. Su-
preme Court takes a different stand,
Hardy sees'it as a nonissue.
Florida already has a statute on
the, books that specifically allows
students to opt out of reciting the
pledge upon a written request by
parents, he said.
"I don't know what the California
laws are, but as far as thdie compul-
sion issue, Florida .statutes have
already taken care of that," Hardy
said. *
No comments
The potentially divisive issue
doesn't appear to be attracting
much interest at this point, said Bill


Mowry, assistant principal at Venice
High.
"Since the ruling we have not
heard a thing from students or par-
ents about the issue," he said.
"We are certainly not going to
.change anything unless ordered to
by the state," said school board chair
Kathy Kleinlein. "We have to be obe-
dient to whatever federal and state
statutes apply."
"It's status ,quo until this is all
resolved," said SheilaWeiss, spokes-
woman for Sarasota County School
District.
The Supreme Court dismissed
the case last year, saying Newdow
lacked standing because he did not
have custody of his elementary
school daughter on whose behalf he
sued. Newdow and others then filed
an identical case on behalf of three
unnamed parents and their chil-
dren. Newdow hopes that will make
make it more likely the merits of his
case will be addressed by the high
court.
Judge Karlton, ruling in Sacra-
mento, said he would sign a re-
straining order preventing the


"We are certainly, not going
to change anything unless
ordered to by the state. We
have to be obedient to
whatever federal and state
statutes apply."

recitation of the pledge at the Elk
Grove Unified, Rio Linda and Elverta
Joint elementary school districts in
Sacramento County, where the
plaintiffs' children attend.
The order would not extend
beyond those districts unless it is
affirmed by the 9th Circuit, in which
case it could apply to nine western
states; or by the Supreme Court,
whose ruling would apply to all the
states.

Waterfront tower No. 3 up for approval


The planning commission is to review
Phase III of Waterfront on Venice Island.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Waterford Companies is
going for approval to build its
third and final condominium
tower on Venice island. "
Anti-height opponents
needn't bother showing up
to the 1:30 p.m. Tuesday
planning commission meet-
ing. Height exceptions for all
three 105-foot buildings was
granted in 2001.
Up for approval Tuesday
are the plans to build the
third tower, as well as a park-
ing garage, club area and
storage facility.
Waterford president Mike
Miller will be asking for a
special exception so he can
build a parking garage, a devi-
ation from his original con-
cept plans of four years ago.
The special exception is
asking to reduce side-yard set-
backs for a garage from 5 feet
to.3 feet, 6 inches; reduce the
width of parking spaces from
10 feet to 9 feet; and reduce
the number of parking spots
from 196 spots to 188.
If approved, the parking
garage will be where the old
Amoco gas station now sits.
Florida Department of Trans-
portation used this property
as a staging area for recon-


struction of U.S. 41 Business.
The second floor of the
parking garage would be
storage compartments and
the clubhouse for residents
living at Waterfront.
As for the third condomin-
ium tower, it will be nine
stories 105 feet tall. The
first floor will be parking and
-the next eight stories com-
prise the 34 residential units.
The outside appearance of
the third tower will be identi-
cal to the other two already
finished.
Final density of the Water-
front project will be 15.2
dwelling units per acre, .ac-
cording to the staff report.
None of what the planning
commission discusses Tues-
day applies to the Commerc-
ial, Mixed Use District that is
in front of city council. All
areas affected by the CMU
proposal are in Phase IV of
the Waterfront project.
Council members will re-
sume the CMU public hearing
at the Oct. 11 council meet-
ing. Once the CMU is ap-
proved or denied, Miller then
must have his zoning appli-
cation voted on.
Other agenda
The rest of the planning
commission meeting will deal


with amending the Venice
comprehensive plan to re-
designate the future land use
of a dozen properties within
city limits.
Most of these are house-
keeping items to change land
use codes of property that has
been annexed, from Sarasota
County terms to city terms.
However, these designations
are what is used to justify
.future development of prop-
erties and tell neighbors what
might eventually be built.
City council will have final
approval on all these matters:
Rinker Materials of
Florida Nearly 10 acres on
the north side of Gene Green
Road, 900 feet east of Knights
Trail Road; change future use
from "rural" to "industrial."
In-Island Development
About 1.8 acres at 437
Nokomis Ave.; change future
use from "office, professional
and institutional" to "medi-

CITY NOTES


Sewage spill in Venice
A sewage force main in
Venice on Ridgewood Avenue,
between U.S. 41 Bypass and
Bay Indies Boulevard, broke
Friday shortly before 11 a.m.,
spilling an estimated 4,000
gallons of raw sewage into
Hatchett Creek. The cause of
the break is not known.
Sewage from the pipe was


diverted so there was no inter-
ruption in sewer service. The
road was temporarily closed
in that area. Repairs were
completed by city of Venice
utilities crews by 2 p.m. Friday.
Sarasota County Health
Department and other agen-
cies were notified. It is advis-
able to avoid contact with the
water in Hatchett Creek until


tests show there is no danger
of contamination.
Wharf submits
height application
Venice Planning Depart-
ment confirmed that Fisher-
man's Wharf owner John Ko-
necnik did submit his plans to
redevelop the wharf area,
including the 58-unit, 105-foot


condominium building.
The Venice Gondolier Sun
first reported Konecnik's in-
tentions in the Sept. 11 edi-
tion, and published architec-
tural renderings of the project.
A date for a planning
commission vote has not
been set.

Contract awarded for

Center Road project


STAFF REPORT

The Board of County Com-
missioners Wednesday award-
ed a $29.7 million contract to
Prince Contracting Co. Inc. of
Palmetto for a major roadway
construction project to widen
Center Road from River Road
to Jacaranda Boulevard, and
to improve the Jacaranda-
Center intersection In Venice.
As one of the main east-
west routes in south county,
two-lane Center Road has
long been targeted for im-
provement. The project con-
sists of widening an approxi-
mately 3.6-mile stretch of
existing two-lane roadway
into a divided four-lane road
with landscaped medians,
street lights, 4-foot bicycle
lanes, traffic signalization,
roadway drainage and storm-
water ponds.
A "meandering" 10-foot-
wide combination path and
sidewalk would be built on
each side of the roadway as
part of the county's trails sys-
tem, according to Mobility
General Manager Jim Harriott.
The improvements at the


intersection of Center Road
and Jacaranda Boulevard
include dual left-turn lanes,
an exclusive right-turn lane at
each approach and modifica-
tion of signal mast arms. Plans
also call for a closed drainage
system, extending or shifting
medians, the addition of side-
walks on the south side of
Center Road, relocation of
existing utilities and resurfac-
ing the intersection.
Prince submitted the low-
est of four bids for the project,
which is expected to get under
way around the beginning of
October. The contract calls for
substantial completion within
540 days, but there would be a
$547,020 incentive for early
completion.
Construction will be fund-
ed by the gasoline tax, South
County impact fees, the infra-
structure surtax, regional
roadway funds, ad valorem
taxes and developer contribu-
tions.
For more information, con-
tact the Sarasota County Call
Center at (941) 861-5000 and
ask to speak with a road pro-
gram manager.


BOCC to begin comp plan deliberations


STAFF REPORT

The Sarasota County Board
of Commissioners will begin
deliberations on proposed
amendments to the county's
comprehensive plan.
Commissioners have set
aside three days next week to
discuss and deliberate pro-
posed changes to the docu-
ment in response to the
Evaluation and Appraisal Re-
port process last year. Delib-
erations will take place as
follows:
9 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 20,
and continuing after 1:30 p.m.
9 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 22,
and continuing after 1:30 p.m.
9 a.m. Friday, Sept. 23, and
continuing after 1:30 p.m.
All meetings will take
place in the first floor com-
mission chambers at the
Sarasota County Adminis-
tration Center, 1660 Ringling
Blvd., Sarasota. No public
comment will be taken by
commissioners during their
deliberations.
As they conduct their de-
liberations, commissioners
will consider the chapters of
the comprehensive plan, be-
ginning with the Environ-


ment chapter, then moving
to other chapters including
Parks and Recreation, Eco-
nomic Development, Public
Buildings and Related Facil-
ities, Intergovernmental Co-
ordination and Citizen Par-
ticipation, Historic Preserva-
tion, Watershed Management,
Housing, Transportation, Cap-
ital Improvements and Future
Land Use.
Since the chapters are
interrelated, commissioners
may consider multiple chap-
ters or move between chap-
ters during their discussions.
To assist the public in
tracking issues, information
will be posted daily on the
county's Web site at scgov.net
about the progress of the
county commission in its
deliberations.
Additional public input
will be taken on Sept. 27, fol-
lowed by further deliberation
by the commissioners on
Sept. 28 and Oct. 12.
Every seven years, Sarasota
County reviews its compre-
hensive plan to identify and
respond to changing trends
and conditions in the com-
munity, as well as changing
state and regional growth


Hearing set for Shakett Creek Bridge


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

The fate of the railroad
trestle over Shakett Creek
could be decided next month
at a public hearing.
The height of the trestle
over water is crucial to
boaters.
"It has to be at least as high
as the (new) Dona Bay Bridge
when it's complete," USCG
Bridge Operations Chief Barry
Dragon said earlier. "We ...
need it to be a reasonable
height for vessels to use safe-
ly."
The U.S. Coast Guard has


issued a notice of public hear-
ing scheduled for 7 p.m., Oct.
12, at Venice High School.
"I think it is extremely
unfortunate that the county
had to push the Coast Guard
into this process," Raise The
Bridge Committee President
Jim Christman said. "But I am
happy because for once and
for all, it should solve the
question about whether there
is a reasonable obstruction
to navigation."
The purpose of the hearing
is to give the bridge owner
(Sarasota County), waterway
users and other interested
people the opportunity to


object to the proposed raising
of the trestle.
The Dona Bay Bridge will
be raised to just more than 12
feet above mean (average)
high water. The trestle will
have to be raised to provide
unfettered navigation, Coast
Guard officials said.
The Dona Bay Bridge ren-
ovation is part of the U.S. 41
widening project through
Nokomis.
The county balked at rais-
ing the trestle.
However, the county's own
study revealed that it would
be more economical to tear
the wooden structure down


and replace it with a brand-
new concrete bridge than
restore the present structure.
The trestle has been re-
named the Shakett Creek
Pedestrian Bridge.
A year ago, the county
purchased 12 miles of pro-
posed Rails-To-Trails corridor
that stretches from the Venice
Train Depot to Clark Road.
The county was given a
$150,000 discount off the
purchase of the rail corridor
to raise the trestle.

PGT working to meet high hurricane-window demand


South County's largest manufacturer
is making windows around the clock
and still can't keep up with demand.


BY CHRISTINA ELWELL
STAFF WRITER
PGT Industries employees
are working day and night to
meet the high demand for
hurricane-proof windows.
"We can't make enough
windows right now," Paulo
Reese of PGT said.
According to Reese, PGT's
WinGuard Impact-Resistant
Windows are in increasingly
high demand.
Seeing the damage that
hurricanes such as Katrina are
doing to homes, people are
hurrying to protect their
properties from similar de-
struction.
These windows are one
way to do that.
"This product protects the
home," Reese said. "They
keep projectiles from getting
in and destroying the inside
of a house."
On top of hurricane pro-
tection, these windows give
people peace of mind. The
sturdy windows protect from
intruders, thieves and van-
dals. They also reduce out-
side noise.
Each day, PGT workers
make nearly 1,000 windows.
About 25-35 windows are
made an hour, which trans-
lates to two minutes per
window.
This seems like a lot of
windows. However, with the
hurricane season upon us
and demand being much
higher, it isn't enough.
"Demand is about 1,300 to
1,400 a day," Reese said.
PGT expects demand to
rise even further when Hur-


ricane Katrina-damaged cities
begin to rebuild.
Specially ordered
Each window built by PGT
is specially ordered to fit a
specific home.
"Everything that is being
built has a customer," Reese
explained. "Nothing is made
to sit in our warehouse."
In fact, the process moves
along quite quickly.
After a window is manufac-
tured, it is moved for a short
time into the warehouse.
Within 24 hours it is loaded
onto a truck and shipped off
to its destination.
As product demand rises,
so does PGT's need for new
employees.
Over the past few weeks
PGT has hired 16 new em-
ployees to manufacture their
windows. According to Reese,
the company is hoping to
hire nearly 60 more over the
next year.
Testing
PGT runs daily large and
small missile impact tests on
its hurricane-proof windows.
These tests include shooting
a two-by-four out of a cannon
directly at one of the sample
windows.
The point is to stop the
two-by-four from penetrating
the window. PGT also tests
these windows against hurri-
cane-strength winds.
The purpose of these tests
is to make sure that the win-
dows will stand up against a
projectile in a hurricane.
A test conducted Friday
afternoon as part of a tour of

county manufacturers spon-
sored by the Economic De-
velopment Corporation was a
success. A two-by-four soared
at a laminated window and
cracked the glass. However,
the window stayed intact
and stopped the two-by-four


from crashing through it.
If that happened in a real
hurricane, the window might
have saved somebody's life.

PARK from page 1A
staff several times last year
whether the public park
would connect to Venetian
Golf & River Club's 70-acre
preserve, which the city
required WCI to create, but a
firm answer was never given
before Friday.
This continues a trend of
what city consultants from
Wade-Trim called "privatized
open spaces" during a com-
prehensive plan update
workshop Tuesday. Increas-
ingly, developments off of
Venice island meet open
space requirements by build-
ing golf courses or other areas
the public is not allowed to
enter freely.


Venetian Nature Park is the
first time a private nature pre-
serve full of wild hogs, deer,
wild turkeys and bald eagles
- has been created.
Public use, public money
City consultants have sug-
gestedVenice's updated com-
prehensive plan should put a
stop to this. The city is in the
process of amending the
plan, which the state requires
be done every seven years.
Walker cautions that such
a requirement could actually
have a negative effect.
Creation and maintenance of
open space for public use
should require public money,
Walker said.
But by allowing a private


developer to do what Ve-
netian Golf & River Club did,
acres and acres of pastures
heavily soiled with cattle
waste have been turned into
wetlands and other habitat
area despite being a golf
course and private park,
Walker said.
Trees planted in the golf
course were selected to
increase bird habitat. The
latest counts have as many
as 200 different species in
the area. Reportedly, there
were fewer than 20 five years
ago.
"This community is the
perfect example of a commu-
nity that took the environ-
ment and made it better,"
Walker said.,


Student Leadership raise $1,100 to support victims


STAFF REPORT


On Sept, 10, 17 students
and parents gathered to con-
tinue the Student Leadership
Academy's Hurricane Katrina
fundraising relief efforts.
Working in partnership
with Gulf Coast Community
Foundation ofVenice, the stu-
dents and parents raised an-
other $1,100 by soliciting the
help of local businesses and
community members. This
brings the total collected to
$2,900 in a little more than
one week.
All of the funds will flow
through the Baton Rouge


Area Foundation for immedi-
ate and targeted distribution
in the affected areas, said
Doug O'Connell, dean of stu-
dents at the Student Leader-
ship Academy.
Fliers were also distributed
asking local businesses and
community members to join
the cause.
The school took this next
weekend off to finish the
fourth wing renovation at the
school.
However, the next fund-
raiser is 9 a.m., Sept. 24, to
continue this effort.
"We are documenting and
showcasing our progress at


school each day with morn-
ing announcements and our
'wall of stars,' O'Connell
said. "Students will receive
different levels of recogni-
tion based on the amount of
money they raise and the
number of hours they do-
nate to this service-learning
project."
The academy is soliciting
partnerships with other Sara-
sota County schools and busi-
nesses in hopes of exponential-
ly multiplying the efforts.

BUDGET from page lA

cause we have open doors

no one's even calling."
Not only has city hall been
complaint-free, even the

ial pages and Let 'Em Have It!
lines are absent of budget.
complaints or questions.
And all this comes despite
what appears to be a 15.6 per-
cent jump in the budget, for
the largest budget in city his-
tory.
Watching the watchdog
Even the traditional voice
of public dissent has been
quiet this year. Represent-
atives from the Venice Tax-
payers League have not spo-
ken once during the two-
month budget approval pro-
cess. It appears the council
vote Sept. 27 is basically a for-
mality.
VTL president Herb Levine
says he is watching, and his
silence does not mean he
supports the city budget.
Levine believes the city is
overstaffed and an outside
efficiency consultant needs to
be hired.
In his opinion, Levine
thinks at least 40 employees
- mostly assistants and cleri-
cal staff-- could be eliminat-


ed.
Health problems and chal-
lenging the approval of build-
ings taller than 35 feet have
taken up most of his time,
Levine said. He also thinks
VTL has gotten bogged down
in the creation of education
and other subcommittees.
"I think we're drowning in
subcommittees.. ... We're
going to go back to what we
do: expenditures .and
growth," Levine said. "Every-
thing else is a symptom of
that. You can get a little too
sophisticated, so we need to
go back to what we do."
Mayor Dean Calamaras,
who, with a brief hiatus, has
served on council since 1989,
remembers when VTL was
considered the fiscal watch-
dog. It's been more than a
decade since the taxpayers
league actually held council's
feet to the fire on spending,
according to the mayor.
"Back when I was first
elected, when the taxpayers
league was actually a watch-
dog group, they would come
up and actually ask, quiz us
on spending," Calamaras
said. "They watched every
dollar that was spent, and
complained about it and held
a lot of sway back in those
days.


"Back then, there was
always two or three council
members who were on the
tax league. That all changed
when they started going from
being a watchdog group to
whatever they are today."
Not so much
One explanation from the
city is that the budget didn't
really increase by $10 million
over last year. The increase is
actually closer to $5 million,
for about a 7 percent increase,
according to rough estimates
from the city.
City Manager Marty Black
changed how the numbers
are computed, so that all
expenses are put in the bud-
get. In previous years, jobs in
the Capital Improvement
Project category were left out.
All of this was legal, but it
did create the appearance of
Venice's budget being smaller
than it actually was.
Whether you pick the 7
percent or 15 percent num-
ber, the increase pales in
comparison to budgets pro-
posed by Sarasota County
and North Port. The county's

Unlike neighboring commu-

department increased by 1.4
percent to $4.8 million. The
police department is down by
4.8 percent, to $6.8 million,
but that should change once
a new labor contract for
patrol officers is approved.
Staffing levels at both
departments remain un-
changed, which helps keep
costs down, though some
wonder if the departments
are overstaffed. Crime and
fires are not big problems in
the city.
But part of the reason for
those low statistics is be-
cause the city is not under-
staffed, according to the
police chief.
"People that come here,
move to Venice and pay taxes,
they expect a high level of ser-
vice," Hanks said. "They
expect to have firefighters at
their home in under two min-
utes. ... Crime is down, the
fires out. That makes people
happy."

DENTURE BASE MATERIAL!
Although getting used to new dentures can take patience, it's amazing
how quickly they become completely comfortable. The modern denture
base materials (the portion of any denture that covers the gum and
supports the artificial teeth) are so good, so life-like and so compatible,
that adapting is usually quiet easy.
That wasn't always the case. Earliest denture bases were constructed
of bone or ivory, followed shortly by platinum, gold, silver, and tin. The
development of vulcanite in the 1850s resulted in remarkable
improvements, but for a while received stiff competition from tortoise
shell, porcelain, gutta-percha, and celluloid.
When the age of plastics arrived, we had a material that was
compatible with gum tissue, was stable, that didn't absorb mouth
odors, that was easy to use, and looked beautiful. Plastics have
improved so much that today we have a remarkable denture-base
material that's a close to what nature provided as you can get.

Siesta park slips down


county's work list again


A $500,000 plan'to upgrade the 10-acre Siesta Key
park was approved in February 2003. The project
still hasn't been advertised for bids and won't
start until next year.


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


There is something myste-
rious about the long-delayed
project to upgrade Glebe Park
on Siesta Key that inexplica-
bly causes Sarasota County
officials to repeatedly slip it
down their list of priorities so
contract bids are not sought
and construction never be-
gins.
It has happened again.
Contracts that were supposed
to be let this summer, and
construction that was antici-
pated this autumn, have been
pushed back again. Now the
word is that bids will be
accepted before the end of
this year, with the work to
start early next year.
"We just received final
approval from development
services to move forward,"
said Bill Wisnievwski, a county
parks planner. 'A well was dis-
covered on the property that
had to be capped, and reas-
surances have again been-
given to neighbors about


stormwater drainage."
Glebe Park has been a 10-
acre political hot potato since
it was transferred from the
school system to the county
in the 1970s, and nervous
neighbors have fretted about
the possibility of noise from
recreational activities. Most of
the time it has been chained
and locked.
Pass the peppers
On Feb. 18, 2003, the coun-
ty commission finally approv-
ed a $500,000 plan for park
improvements that include a
pavilion, ballfield, soccer
field, basketball court, walk-
ing trail, restrooms and picnic
shelter. The challenge has
been to get the project off the
drawing boards.
'Another problem that help-
ed create the latest delay was a
county project manager (Terry
Redman) left," saidWisniewski.
"There has also been some talk
that the restrooms might have
to be expanded. That decision
will be up to the health depart-
ment."

County approves Nov. 8 special
election for lands program
County commissioners have approved an ordinance calling for a special
election Nov. 8 that will ask voters to extend the ad valorem tax for the
Environmentally Sensitive Lands Protection Program (ESLPP). Voters will be
asked to extend the current rate of 0.25 mill for an additional 10 years. If passed,
the measure would raise the current $53 million cap on bonds to $250 million
toward the acquisition, protection and management of environmentally sensitive
lands, while expanding its scope to include neighborhood parklands.
Commissioners emphasized that this is not a tax increase. It is a continuation of
the current ESLPP funding, which was adopted by referendum in 1999 and is
set to expire in 2019. Under the program, the county has purchased and
conserved more than 16,000 acres of natural Florida habitat. Commissioners
believe this extension will help to acquire land now that may not be affordable in
the future as real estate prices continue to rise.
Although the additional funds will also help purchase land for neighborhood
parks, improved scenic areas and recreational opportunities, the majority will
remain dedicated toward purchases of environmentally sensitive lands, with the
remainder earmarked for parklands.
For more information, contact the Sarasota Couinty Call Center at (941) 861-
5000 and ask for Brooke Elias or John McCarthy.

County Commission to begin deliberations
on Comprehensive Plan update
The Sarasota County Board of Commissioners will begin deliberations on
proposed amendments to the county's comprehensive plan.
Commissioners have set aside three days next week to discuss and deliberate

9 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 20 and continuing after 1:30 p.m.
9 a.m. Thursday, Sept.22 and continuing after 1:30 p.m.
.* 9 a.m. Friday, Sept. 23 and continuing after 1:30 p.m.
All meetings will take place in the first floor Commission Chambers at the
Sarasota County Administration Center, 1660 Ringling Blvd., Sarasota. No public
comment will be taken by commissioners during their deliberations.

lenge from the Siesta Key Association.

Jon Thaxton almost sorrow-
fully pointed out at one time,
"Nobody here agrees with

When it was finally over,

Each of those Thaxton

sentially said, "You can't stop
now," as it applies to building
duplexes on barrier islands.


A representative of the
Siesta Key Association basi-
cally threatened a lawsuit if
the duplex practice weren't
stopped.
The compromise
Briefly, the commission
agreed that, in the future, it
will not allow construction of
duplexes on barrier island
lots of less than 7,500 square
feet unless a duplex already
exists there. However, duplex-
es will be allowed on any bar-
rier island lot more than 7,500
square feet provided it meets
the setback requirements for
single-family houses..

Additionally, the commis-
sion unanimously agreed to
limit building coverage on
any size lot to 35 percent.
Maximum lot coverage will
be limited to 50 percent and
the height of any duplex is
limited to 30 feet measured
from the first usable floor to
the mid-point of a peaked
roof. In the case of flat or
mansard roofs, the measure is
to the top of the roof.
All parcels of two lots or
more can have a duplex built
on them.
The duplex controversy
began when SKA officials dis-
covered that permits have


routinely been issued for
units on undersized RMF-1
lots after questions were
being asked about the high
number of units approved for
several new projects.
On June 9, the county
commission was warned by
Building Administrator Mary
Beth Humphreys that per-
mits and letters promising
permission to build duplex-
es authorized by her prede-
cessors date back many
years, and County Attorney
Steve DeMarsh cautioned
that a continuation of the
practice may be a violation
of the law.


Cost of

south Siesta

sand jumps

by a third

BY BOB ARDREN
PELICAN PRESS

The price of renourishing
south Siesta Key beachfront
jumped 30 percent over the
past year as county staffers
scrambled to get state and
federal permits and schedule
dredging outside turtle nest-
ing season.
In a report to the county
commission Tuesday, Project
Scientist Curtis Smith essen-
tially delivered two messages
to the commissioners. First
was the increase in cost and
second was the schedule he
hopes can be followed.
"First of all, we've lost
another 100,000 cubic yards
of sand off that beach in the
past year," Smith told the
Pelican Press Tuesday. "Then
we've got a 40 percent in-
crease in the cost of diesel fuel
that powers the dredges 24
hours a day, seven days a
week."
On top of that, there's also
increased competition for use
of the dredges following the
damage done to many of the
state's beaches during both
last year's and the present
hurricane season.
"We're in. the process of
getting state and federal per-
mits right now," Smith ex-
plained.
Since the turtle nesting
season in this area is May 1
through Oct. 30 each year, it
appears the most likely time
to carry out the four-month
project will be beginning Nov.
1, 2006.
Turtle concerns
Smith points out in a
memorandum to county
commissioners that Sarasota
County is unlikely to receive
permission to do the beach
renourishment work during
nesting season.
True, both the town of
Longboat Key and city of
Venice received such permis-
sion. but, he noted, "This
would likely be a result of the
significantly greater nesting
density within the project
area."
In other words, there's
more turtle nesting on south
Siesta than either of the other
two locations.
The new cost estimate of
$7.76 million prepared by
Coastal Planning and En-
gineering Inc., is up from the
previous estimate of $5.8 mil-
lion. Sarasota County is ex-
pected to contribute 52 per-
cent of that, or $4 million,
with an anticipated state
grant picking up another 30.3
percent or $2.357 million.
The remaining 17.4 per-
cent or $1.35 million is ex-
pected to come from a special
taxing district set up among
the property owners on the
gulf coast who will receive
storm protection.

Red tide update reveals bloom status


,STAFF REPORT

Distribution of the Florida
red tide organism is wide-
spread yet patchy along the
.shore on the west coast from
the Panama City to Naples.
This does not mean that it
is present everywhere be-
tween those cities. At any
point in time it is likely that
there are many localities
along the shore where red
tide is not detectable. These
locations may be within a few
kilometers of areas where
there is detectable red tide.
Red tide concentrations
are presently high in New
Pass and some locations in
Sarasota Bay. These locations
could shift within a matter of
hours.:
Satellite remote sensing
suggests widespread distribu-
tion of red tide offshore. In
some areas it may reach as


much as 30 miles offshore.
Also check the FWRIWeb site,
floridamarine.org, and follow
the link to Red Tide Current
Status Statewide Information
for recent information.
Some shellfish beds are
closed to harvesting. Res-
piratory irritation and dead
fish might occur in some
locations, depending on local
bloom conditions and the
direction and intensity of the
wind.
Light winds and winds
blowing offshore should min-
imize adverse effects, while
strong onshore winds could
bring adverse impacts on
shore. It is important to note
that, as atmospheric and
oceanic conditions change,
algal bloom conditions
change as well.
For status of the bloom
with information about cell
concentrations observed at


specific locations, and closed
shellfish areas, see the FWRI
Web site, floridamarine.org.
For local red tide information,
call Mote's information phone
system at 388-4441 and press

vironmental Updates.


Conservation foundation



receives $6.6 million


STAFF REPORT

The Florida Communities
Trust has awarded the Sara-
sota Conservation Founda-
tion a grant in the amount of
$6.6 million the single
largest grant the Florida
Communities Trust has given
to a nonprofit in the history of
the organization.
The foundation plans to
use the funds toward the cost
of acquiring an environmen-
tally, historically and cultural-
ly significant property on
Little Sarasota Bay.
Specifically, the Sarasota
Conservation ,Foundation
plans to purchase a 4.38-acre
parcel in Osprey, near Historic
Spanish Point. The property
contains an elegant, well-pre-
served Colonial Revival home
that was built in 1931, plus a
carriage house and three
cracker-style cottages.
The Sarasota Conservation
Foundation hopes to con-
serve, maintain and enhance
the property in an ecological-
ly and historically sensitive


way, while opening it up for
the use and enjoyment of the
public. The facilities will be
made available to cultural,
historic and environmental
groups.
This breathtaking old Flor-
ida landscape will provide a
valuable point of public ac-
cess to beautiful Little Sara-
sota Bay for fishing, kayaking
or just sitting on the pier, pon-
dering the behavior of peli-
cans and egrets.
"This grant will be instru-
mental in protecting our
bays, beaches and barrier is-
lands," said Albert Joerger, the


head of the foundation.
"Unspoiled bayfront land -
the kind of natural landscape
that drew so many of us to
this area in the first place is
rapidly giving way to develop-
ment. We are delighted that
the Sarasota Conservation
Foundation has been able to
bring these funds to Sarasota
County to help safeguard
public access to our most
cherished resources. The
Florida Communities Trust
has given our organization
the opportunity to conserve a
piece of that land for future
generations to enjoy."

tion centers there.


"In response to the

Those who are willing to
support this cause can con-
tact their local Catholic

Catholic Charities is accept-
ing contributions of gift cards
to area stores for food, gas,
clothing and phone service
for relocated families so they
can purchase much-needed
items.

individual wishing to trans-
port donated goods to the
relief centers in Biloxi can
contact Routsis-Arroyo via
cell phone at 468-6440. No

Venice downs

Charlotte in 5
It was showdown time
Thursday night in Class 5A
District 11 volleyball.
The match pitted two riv-
als who were unbeaten in
district play. Visiting Char-
lotte came into the Teepee
with a 5-0 record, while host
Venice was 4-0.
It was as thrilling as billed,
with the host Lady Indians
pushed to five games before
disposing the Lady Tarpons,
15-10.
,Venice won the first two
games, 25-15 and 25-21. The
Lady Indians led game three
22-18 but Charlotte rallied to
steal it 25-23. The Lady
Tarpons then made things
mighty interesting by winning
a 29-27 nail-biter in game
four.
Venice junior outside hitter
Natalie Gaudreau was sensa-
tional over the first three
games. She had a nearly per-
fect night hitting and serving.
Smacking the ball hard and
true, Gaudreau had .a dozen
kills over the span. She served
up seven straight points -
including two aces in the
first game.
In the second game, Ven-
ice led 21-16 and 22-18, but
Charlotte closed to within
22-21. Nickie Halbert convert-
ed a dink and Gaudreau put
a ball away to make it 24-21.
Venice, now 7-2 overall,
had plenty of opportunities to
win in three, but allowed
Charlotte back in.
"We did everything we
could possibly do to lose the
match," Lady Indian coach
Brian Wheatley said. "Char-
lotte played a tough match."
The last time Charlotte
defeated Venice was back in
1995 when Sean Ford coached
the Lady Tarpons.
Dana Dumas finished with
22 kills to lead Venice. Gau-
dreau had 17, while Casey
Taylor had eight. Setter Nickie
Halbert had 29 assists.
Next up for Venice is a trip
to Bayshore Tuesday. The
Lady Indians are home
Thursday night against
Evangelical Christian.
FRESHMAN WIN The
VHS freshman volleyballers
improved to 7-1 with a 25-6,
25-9 victory over Charlotte.
Ashley Kaiser served six aces.
Kaitlin Porter and Stephanie
Sullivan had six kills apiece.
VMS serves up
another victory
The red-hot Venice Middle
School volleyball team im-
proved its record to 3-0 with a
25-11, 25-23 victory over a
tough Sarasota Middle squad.
"We played well as a team,"
VMS coach Peter Boucher
said.
Kelsey McNamara, Cynthia
Melendez and Kirsten Wa-
chule played well on both
sides of the ball.
'All three are always in the
correct place at the correct
time and all three had strong
serves cooking," Boucher said.
Undefeated VMS plays
host to undefeated Laurel-
Nokomis at 5 p.m. Monday.

The Faulkner Hitting Camp

several weeks at the Venice

Indians capture district opener


Late drive results in
game-winning
touchdown over
visiting Charlotte.

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

It's still pretty early in the
season to be playing in must-
win games.
But after losing their first
three games and embarking
on their district schedule,
Friday night's contest against
visiting Charlotte was of the
utmost importance to the
Venice High Indians.
The determination to get
the monkey off the back
showed in a crucial drive late
in the game, as Venice trav-
eled the length of the field
in the final 2:44 for the win-
ning score in a hard-fought
20-13 victory over the
Tarpons.
Venice improved- to 1-3
overall but more important-
ly is 1-0 in Class 5A District
11. Charlotte fell to 1-3 and
0-1.
Like in earlier non-district
affairs, it looked like turnovers
might once again cost the
Indians. Venice fumbled a
total of five times, losing
three of them. Two of them
came in the red zone.
In the fourth quarter,
Indian quarterback Matt
Wickwire coughed up the
ball at the 36-yard line. It led
to Charlotte scoring the go-
ahead touchdown with just

Venice's RB Tony Charles finds some open field during Friday's game. Charles gained 161 yards


With the final ticks going
off the clock, the Venice "D"
rose up to finally put
Kreischer on his.keister. A
strong rush produced three
hurry-up incompletions and
Andrew Czuprynski and
Danny Martini teamed up
for a sack.
And-finally, a victory.
"We overcame a lot of
adversity," Venice head coach
Nick Coleman said. "The
kids never dropped their
heads. They kept believing.
They grew up these past three
weeks."
Venice came into the
game with a bend-but-don't-
break defensive strategy.
Kreischer threw for 100
yards and Francis caught
eight balls for 77 yards, but
a lot of the damage was
underneath. Fullback Kyle
Provencal hurt the Indians
up the middle for 101 yards
on 17 carries.
"The defense did a god
job," Coleman said. "We
didn't want to give up the
big play. The defense stuck
with the game plan. There
were several times they
wanted to go to a five-man
front, but they stayed with
the 4-4."


Charlotte took the opening

yards on 13 plays for a touch-
down. Provencal scored the
TD on a three-yard run.
Venice drew to within 7-6
midway through the second
quarter. The Indians put
together a long, time-con-
suming drive. Fifteen plays
covered 78 yards. Wickwire
scored the TD on a QB keep-
er covering 6 yards. The extra
point was blocked.
Venice took the second half
kickoff and drove 80 yards on
just seven plays. Charles had
35 yards, Merzius 23 yards
and Wickwire 22. Wickwire
scored the TD on a 14-yard
run on an option right. The
run failed, but Venice was up
12-7.
The Indians missed a
golden opportunity for in-
surance when Austin Dudley
intercepted a pass, at the
Venice 20 and returned it all
the way to the Tarpon 3-yard
line.
On the very next play,
Charles had the ball toma-
hawked out of his hands
while stretching for the end
zone. The ball went through
the end zone, resulting in a
touchback.

Merzius -All I saw


was the goal line'
was e go, k.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Kiki Merzius wasn't able to
contribute much to last year's
Venice High football pro-
gram. A broken wrist suffered
early in the season took care
of that.
Now a senior, Merzius is
making up for lost time in
a big way. His role as a run-
ning back has grown more
and more every week. Friday
night, he made the play that
decided the game against
district rival Charlotte.
Inside the final minute of
the game, Merzius took a pass
from Matt Wickwire on the
right flat and barreled down
the sideline toward the goal
line. He lowered his shoulder
and sent at least two Tarpons
flying out of the way.
The .12-yard touchdown
reception with 48 seconds
left powered the Indians to a
20-13 victory.
"All I saw was the goal
line and I had to get across
it," said the 5-11, 200-
pounder. "I wasn't nervous.
You catch the ball and get
whatever you can out of it."
Venice scored a touch-


down early in the third quar-
ter and held on to a 12-7
lead until there was just 2:49
left in the fourth quarter.
Charlotte went ahead on a
10-yard slant pass play from
Travis Kreischer to Lance
Francis.
Now trailing 13-12, Venice's
pound-it-out offense had to
strike quickly. But there was
no panic.
"We weren't desperate,"
Merzius said. "We just stuck
together as a team. It takes
all 11 to get the job done.
The front line gave us pro-
tection. We just did our job."
Merzius has become the
solid two punch in the one-
two running -attack led by
Tony Charles. Merzius gained
51 yards on 12 carries against
Charlotte. The week before
at Pace, he got the call 15
times for 68 yards.
Merzius is also the leading
pass-catcher on the Indians
with nine.
"Sometimes he looks like
Tarzan. Sometimes he looks
like Jane," Venice head coach
Nick Coleman said.
That would be more like
Tarzan as the season pro-
gresses.

Charles shoulders the burden


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Tony Charles had the look
of a man who just had a heavy
burden lifted off his shoul-
ders.
The heart and soul of the
Venice High football team
was smiling, both relieved
and satisfied that the Indians
were able to secure their first
victory of the season after
suffering three tough defeats
to state-ranked opponents.
"It feels really good," sigh-
ed Charles, who was a key
to Friday night's victory over
Charlotte with his play on
both offense and defense.
"We needed this. Hopefully
this will carry on to next
week."
At running back, Charles
bowled his way to 161 yards
on 17 carries. It was the third
time in four games he has


cracked the 100-yard mark
this season. Charles now has
more than 500 rushing yards
on the year.
. The 6-foot, 2-inch, 230-
pound mass of muscle and
speed set up the winning
touchdown with a 57-yard
catch-and-run play in the
game's final minute.
"It was a tailback up,"
Charles said. "Their safeties
were splitting, so we knew
the play would be wide
open."
Charles grabbed the pass'
from quarterback Matt Wick-
wire at the 45-yard line and
rumbled all the way to the
7-yard line. On the next play,
Wickwire hit another back -
Kiki Merzius on a screen
play for the winning TD.
Charles also had some
other big plays on "0" -
most notably a 66-yard sec-
ond quarter burst that took


the ball from the Indian 18
to the Charlotte 16. Venice
turned the ball over on a
fumble two plays later.
Leading 12-7 in the third
quarter, Venice had the op-
portunity for a little breath-
ing room following Austin
Dudley's interception return
to the Tarpon 3-yard line.
Charles swept left and was.
close to the end zone when
the ball was chopped out of
his hands and through the
end zone for a touchback.
"I thought I was over," said
Charles, who rates as a big-
time sleeper signee for a
lucky Division I college. "I
stuck the ball out toward the
pylon. That's when they
knocked it free."
Charles also played killer
safety on defense.
In fact, Charles was re-

Middle of the pack for harriers


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

The middle' of the pack was
the norm for the Venice High
cross country teams compet-
ing in Saturday morning's
Lemon Bay Invitational Meet
held at L.A. Ainger Middle
School.
The Venice girls placed
sixth out of 15 teams, while
the boys were seventh.
Girls coach Brenda Clark
actually expected a better
showing.
"It wasn't our day," Clark
said. "Chelsea (Rose) had the
flu earlier in the week and she
was still sick. Alex (Natiss) fell
and never really recovered."


Venice's Erin McCullough
slips past a competitor during
Saturday's Lemon Bay
Invitational Meet at L.A.
Ainger Middle School.


A week earlier in the Venice
Invitational, Rose finished
second to teammate Steph-
anie Korszen. Natiss was 17th
at the Venice Invite.
Although an ill Rose fin-
ished the Lemon Bay race,
she was far off form. Coupled
with Natiss falling, any hopes
of finishing near the top in
points went by the wayside.
The top finisher for the
Lady Indians was Korszen,
who placed eighth covering
the 3.1 mile course in 21
minutes, 2 seconds. Genna
Jones was 12th. Erin Mc-
Cullough came home 34th.
Katie Pfost was 37th. Kim
Pinkerton was 42nd.
The Venice boys were sev-
enth out of 18 teams compet-
ing. Kyle Brunette was ninth
and Wade Consul finished
11th.
The Venice teams will try
again this coming Saturday at
'the Manatee Invitational at
G.T. Bray Park. The girls varsity
race will begin at 8 a.m.

Spirit Week at Venice High School


Venice High excitement might look a little wild,

but it's designed to light a fire underneath
students.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Don't be surprised this
week if you see kids going to
school in drag, or dressed as
Mary Kate and Ashley, or
Elvis, or a vampire, or Buc-
caneers' quarterback Brian
Griese. It's officially Spirit
Week at Venice High. Festive
events are scheduled all week
at the school.
It's a chance for each class
to out-spirit the other classes,
said Mary Kay Mack, VHS
coordinator of the event. Key
to the annual competition is
encouraging kids to tap their
creative energies and ulterior
personas by wearing fun or
outrageous outfits.
Monday is designated as
Sports Day, where high
schoolers are encouraged to
wear clothing that represents
their favorite college or pro
sports team. Powder puff
football games will be held
that evening at 7 p.m. Girls
teams. representing each
grade play flag football
against each other while the
guys dress up as cheerleaders.
At the conclusion of the game
a male cheerleader is chosen
as powder puff queen.
"It's scary, because they
like to do this," said Mack.
"They dress up in old Venice
High cheerleader outfits they
put over their shorts. It's really
very entertaining."
Tuesday is class color and
object day. Twelfth-graders
can wear black clothing and
antennas, while 11th-graders
are encouraged to wear
orange with leis.
Tenth-graders can sport
yellow attire with neckties,
while freshman should wear
blue with their choice of sun-
glasses. A lip sync contest


with be held at the North
Gym that evening at 7 p.m.
Wednesday students can
dress up as cowboys or In-
dians (no weapons or masks).
King and queen of the
Homecoming Court will be
elected.
Later on alumni will par-
ticipate in a green and white
swim meet, followed at 7
p.m. by a freshman football
game.
On Thursday high school-
ers may dress up as a famous
person, real or fictitious. A
series of class-sponsored vol-
leyball games will take place
in the evening. Student gov-
ernment members' will pre-
sent impromptu prizes for
best outfits throughout the
week.
Friday begins with a
senior parade, followed by a
pep rally at which school
judges will tally up competi-
tion points to determine
which class showed the most
spirit.
A fundraising competition
to see which class can collect
the most money will culmi-
nate in the "sliming" of a fac-
ulty member selected by the
winning class. The money will
likely go to hurricane relief.
efforts, Mack said.
Friday evening at 7:30 p.m.
the Venice Indians football
team takes on Booker High.
The Homecoming King and
Queen will be crowned at
halftime.
Saturday's homecoming
dance takes place 7:30-11:30
p.m. featuring a disc jockey,
complete with interactive
lighting and cameras that will
project onto 25-foot-high
screens.

OUR VIEW




Solutions for red tide are elusive


here are two key issues concerning the
algal bloom that is the bane of beach-
goers and fishermen: how to stop it and
how to warn people it has broken out. Those
are the two sore points with scientists,
tourism officials and the media.
While anyone who regularly fishes or goes
to the beach will argue the red tide problem
is growing worse each year, scientists with
Mote Marine and Florida Fish and Wildlife
Research Institute would say it is a centuries-
old phenomena that gets more attention
now that our beaches are more crowded.
"This has just been a bad year," said Cyn-
thia Heil, senior research scientist, Florida
Fish and Wildlife Research Institute. "This
may be the first bad year since the 1990s, but
if you go back to the 1940s and beyond there
have been a lot of bad outbreaks."
Maybe so. But how many people were
here then suffering through them?
Most people see an urgency in trying to
control or stop red tide outbreaks. It is an
inconvenience to them. No one wants to


spend a day at the beach with a hacking
cough and no one enjoys the sight or smell of
dead fish washed ashore.
Fishermen complain because they often
return with nary a bite on their hooks. And
tourism people and resort owners have even
had to return deposits on beachfront rooms
to people who say they can't stomach red
tide.
After millions of dollars of research, how-
ever, no one has conclusively pinned down
the cause of the blooms. Environmentalists,
however, do not hesitate to blame runoff
from overdevelopment as a culprit. And,
some scientists will admit there is evidence,
albeit weak evidence, that red tide feeds on
the nutrients washed into the waterways
from fertilized lawns, golf courses and citrus
fields.
Without a positive tie there will be no rush
to stop red tide at its potential source. Only in
Sarasota County, where county commission-
er Jon Thaxton has thrown out the idea of,
restricting how fertilizers are used, is there


any hint of measures to control the problem.
Thaxton has suggested converting to a time-
release fertilizer that may not do as much
harm.
The only other approach is to treat red
tide outbreaks. An experiment with clay slur-
ry shows some promise. There are two prob-
lems with that idea. The first is the large area
that has to be treated potentially hun-
dreds of square miles. The second is the fact
that clay used to treat the algal bloom would
come from phosphate operations and is
slightly radioactive. Even scientists who are
suggesting clay as a treatment admit that
using clay too often in one spot could result
in radioactive sediment on the bottom of the
gulf.
Ozone has been identified another possi-
ble solution, but it has potential problems of
its own. That's the stuff, you'll recall, that is
blamed for the greenhouse effect.
Nokomis inventor Bob Rigby has a red
tide treatment that has been shown by tests
at Venice High School to be both effective


and safe. He has found it almost impossible
to get anyone interested in it, though, and is
some time away from being able to put it into
use.
So, with no solutions in our immediate
future, many say the best we can hope for at
this time is some sort of early warning sys-
tem to alert us when red tide is present. That
would at least prevent people from arriving
at the beach and deciding the red tide is so
bad they have to return home wasting a
day.
Coming up with a way to spread the word
of a red tide outbreak an outbreak that
moves with the tides and waves is almost
as elusive as finding a cure.
The bottom line is much more needs to be
done. We can only urge the state to make red
tide a priority since it does affect our tourism
and fishing industries.
And, we would add, if a connection
between red tide and fertilizers is found, we
cannot shy away from legislation to control
the problem.

man to help Katrina relief
efforts, or maybe you wrote a
check to the Red Cross or
even, as one of our employees
did, offered -to take' aban-
dbned animals.
It is hard to find a way to
help directly. One of our citi-
zens is fighting the battle on
the front lines, and I thought
I'd pass on some of her fasci-
nating experiences. Try to
imagine how difficult it is try-
ingto coordinate a relief effort
in such a large area.
SLuci Rich is a Venice gal
who is very active when she is
in town. She works at Venice
Regional much of the year
and is a member of Women's
Sertoma, with which she has
worked on parts of Sun Fiesta,
including the parade. In the
summer she often sneaks
away from the heat and heads
up North.
When Katrina hit, Luci
contacted the Red Cross to
help and immediately was
put to work. As you will see,
things change often in this
line of work, as those running
these mammoth operations
learn what works and what
'doesn't.
They gave Lucia debit card
of $900, told her what sup-
plies she would need and told
her to report to Birmingham.
The only problem was, they
wanted her in Montgomery
oops. After the confusion
she got there, where they
were dispatching people to
different disaster areas, some-
times in cabs.
Her very .first assignment
was in Mississippi and her
first contact was dealing with
a child with asthma. A baby in
the same family was also in
respiratory distress because
the mold was so bad in the
motel. Luci was assigned a
paramedic but the paramedic
was so overwhelmed with
cases he couldn't answer
Luci's calls, so she just had to
deal with them.
Soon she got an urgent call
that she was needed in
Pensacola, where 10,000 ref-
ugees showed up and there
was no one to care for them.
Luci was to be that person, as
she was put in charge of med-
ical needs for the largest shel-
ter.


She showed up to the shel-
ter to find hundreds of peo-
ple, many in wheelchairs,
standing outside with noth-
ing left. She immediately had
to get tarps up just to keep the
heat off the people.
She wrote prescription
vouchers for hundreds of
people, for things from in-
sulin for diabetics to drugs for
cardiac and respiratory prob-
lems and on and on.
She saw people living 10 to
a motel room, which was not
free or paid for by any charity.
These people had no money
for gas, living or clothes, as
the Red Cross was not making
gas and clothing money avail-
._able at thatpoint.
Luci found herself giving
money out of her own pocket
to help some people, just to
be able to get to the pharma-
cies to get the medicine she
.had written vouchers for.
Luci related that she help-
ed one family that had lost
nine houses in New Orleans.
The family all lived together
in an area that was badly
flooded. It was people like this.
who Luci saw who needed
counseling, which there was a
real shortage of.
The Red Cross would not
accept materials from other
organizations, whicfhin some
cases could have helped.
The Red Cross changed its
rules as it went along, which
makes sense in such a huge
and changing undertaking.
While it had given money for
medicines up front, it sus-
pended that, but changed it
to giving new arrivals checks
so they could deal with their
own needs. While that solved
the problems of new arrivals
without money, in some cases
it made it hard for Luci to get
prescriptions to some needy
patients.
a She saw 500 people in one
day, dealing with lots of differ-
ent challenges, from people
needing dialysis to people
who lost their reading glasses.
She gave a few people some
money that Women's Ser-
toma Club of Venice had
made available and it was just
like money from heaven.
Women's Sertoma also put
together a U-Haul full of stuff,
much of it personal things
like underwear and personal
care products, to help out.
Finally, Luci was able to
move from a flea-infested
motel to an acquaintance in
Pensacola who took her in.,
We are very proud of her
and the difference she is mak-
ing. I hope I can bring you
more of Luci's experiences.
There are a lot of Luci sto-
ries and to her and all of the
Lucis, our heartfelt thanks. It
is this spirit that makes our
country so great.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


When will red tide get some attention?


Editor:
Time is proving that red tide pollution is everybody's con-
cern.
Since I wrote my previous letter, conditions have only gotten
worse. On Sept. 3 there were dozens of dead fish floating
around the South Jetty.
We are in the 10th month (it started last December) and,
though I hate to compare it with the disaster at New Orleans,
no one in authority city, state or federal is listening.
My fishing buddies and I have sent several e-mails and let-
ters to our state and federal representatives and the only reply
we had was from our state senator. She started out by agreeing
with us, then sent us four pages of political hogwash, with the
end result that there is no money for research.
Our Venice city government and the chamber seem to
ignore it while hoping it will go away soon. But it isn't, and I can
see where it is affecting our businesses here in Venice.
This past Saturday evening a friend and I were at different
restaurants that even in the summer are normally busy.
Neither of us could believe our eyes they were both about 25
percent full. And from what I understand the local fishing
guides, charter boats and bait-and-tackle shops are hurting big
time.
Our beaches and our fishes are a precious natural attraction.
Wait until January, when the winter season begins, to see if it as
dead here as the fish floating ashore.

Let the computers
do the dirty work

Editor:
Indeed, I cannot ever
understand the logic here. At
banks and thrift stores many
cashiers and such sit down all
nice and comfortable. Yet, in
supermarkets the cashiers are
standing, and in the hardware
store cashiers are standing.
May this task not be pre-
formed sitting?
Then there is ye olde shop-
ping cart, that invention that
holds goodies and has wheels
on the bottom. Those shop-


ping carts end up by trees,
automobiles or even condo-
miniums about a mile or so
away from the store. I guess
those shopping carts are on a
computer by now. Sure, those
computers buzz the shopping
cart to return to the store
automatically.
Or those computers make
sure that the area restaurants
are clean, the food delightful
and the alleyways are clean.
Yes, those computers do that,
I'm sure.
I'd rather see the cashiers
sitting down and the cus-
tomers return the shopping


carts.

LET 'EM HAVE M SHOULD OUR SCHOOL STUDENTS KEEP SAYING THE
PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE? CALL US AT 207-1111.


Old Venice gave way to progress


Stamped out. Regarding the caller who stated they were
against Section 8 housing and worker housing in Venice. My
opinion is that they're probably neither racist nor snobbish,
but they're just liberal and "don't put it in my back yard." Venice
has a new majority, it seems, because of indiscriminate zoning,
re-zoning and continued annexation. The majority of the
pubic that is buying all of this new building seem to be coming
from the blue states of the Midwest and the Northeast. Fact: If
there's money here, the workers will come to work, no matter
where they live. Fact: The "old Venice" is gone, and it seems like
the elected officials have allowed the old Venice to be stamped


out in the name of progress.

Copper pipes. I read the
story about the pinhole leaks
in the copper pipes in Venice
- has anyone ever given a
thought to the PSI rating on
copper pipes, the amount of
pressure going into these
homes? Surely there has to be
a check valve.
Credit due. Hate to see you
go, but here's your hat. I re-
cently read an article on your
front page announcing the
retirement of Venice Police
Chief Jim Hanks. It went on to'
mention all the great things
he is taking credit for during
his five years of leadership.
Some of the accomplish-
ments were achieved by other
people, but I guess that hap-
pens a lot. Some of the things
he is not taking credit for
should also have been men-
tioned: Under his leadership,
the department lost its state
accreditation and the city had
to waste almost $90,000 on
two surveys to try to find out
what was wrong with the
police department. Most peo-
ple on or off the department
could have done that for free.
High employee turnover and
low morale due to lack of con-
fidence in the leadership sum
up the problems. His role
model by his own admission
was Sheriff Andy Taylor from
Mayberry. I don't think that
the rest of the department
wants to be known as a bunch
of Deputy Barney Fifes.
No high-rises. I'm a Venice
property owner and I'm calling
to say I do not want anything
higher than 35 feet, especially
in the downtown area or any-
place aroundVenice. Let's keep
it as beautiful as it is. I'm not
against progress. I'm all for
growth and progress, but let's
not have high-rises.
Faulty mower. Every year
in the summer the big mower
at the airport breaks down for
an extended period of time.
Someone's probably getting
wealthy repairing this ma-
chine. It's faulty. Maybe an
outside contractor could
mow more reliably and more
reasonably.
Opposed. I'm a resident of
Venice and I'm opposed to
the zoning changes that Mike
Miller would make to the
island. I would like to see all
buildings 35 feet or less.
Pray. God bless our brave
soldier Barry Garmen and all
the soldiers of his unit and the
family who supports him.
Pray for all the soldiers as they
defend us in this fight against
terrorism.
Ridiculous. The skateboard
park being so far away is
ridiculous.
Rude VPD. This Sunday
morning about 9:15 I called
the police department for
some information on how to
report a broken water pipe.
The water was spewing out all
over the street by the hospital,
Venice Regional, parallel to
Business 41 and it smelled to
high heaven. When the phone
rang, this is the way our police
department answered the
phone: "Hello?" I thought I'd
awakened somebody up from
their sleep. I asked if this was
the police department and
they said, "Yes, it is, and this is
being recorded." So I said,
well I want to report; etc. "I'll
call the water department." I
said, "Well could you please
give me the number to the


water department so if this
happens again I can call
directly." "I'll call the water
department." I tried again to
get the number and the lady
refused to give it. I think this is
highly unprofessional and if
this is being recorded, all they
have to do at the police sta-
tion is to run it and find out
that this is how this lady is
greeting the public. No thank-
you, nothing. I did some
sleuthing and I finally got an
emergency number for the
water department. Called and
got a very nice man and he
said he'd get somebody out. I
said, "Oh, well, did the police
call you because I reported
this about 15 minutes ago."
He just laughed and said, of
course not.
Most approve. I'm one of the
silent majority that favors the
Waterford development that
Dr. Gaunt mentioned. And I'm
not alone- most of my friends
are all in favor of the high-rises
that Miller is proposing.
Real reporting. Just read
that Miss Ellen Hillstrom of
the South Venice Civic Asso-
ciation will be on a three-
week vacation. This is an ideal
moment for you to provide us
with a reporter from South
Venice who could provide real
community news versus Miss
Hillstrom's personal or civic
association items. We are a
community and the largest
subdivision in South County.
An assigned local reporter
could really represent us with
items of interest to all the folk,
all the time.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Ellen Hillstrom
isn't a reporter; she writes a col-
umn as the development director
of the South Venice Civic
Association. We'll be working on
increasing our coverage of South
Venice..
Stay at 35. We want to reg-
ister our opinion that we are
opposed to the 75-foot build-
ings. We'd like to stay at 35-
foot limit that makes our
downtown a very special area.
Should charge. It is time
the Coast Guard charges a fee
for rescue at ignorant times.
When people are out on the
water during a hurricane,
they should know they should
go to the port. When they're
caught out there, have to be
rescued and jeopardize Coast
Guard lives, then they should
be charged a fee. Maybe they
will stay in port and use their
head.
Confused. This is not a
negative comment, it's a
question. Could someone do
a story on pro-life? They say
they don't want to have abor-
tions because it hurts the
fetus, but what about circum-
cision? Also, God is pro-life.
They should say pro-child.
These people should be
adopting kids, you know.
They should be helping to
fund programs, but tradition-
ally they don't. I'm just really
confused about what in the
world they want. What is it
that they're after?
It's their job. In response to
"Clean up," they are sup-
posed to pick up debris
around trash cans. Why don't
you call their supervisor at the
city of Venice, 486-2424, park
department? It's their job to
pick up debris too.

de-da millionaires of Eagle

how much money has the
county lost in impact fees

over to Sarasota County? We
may be running the same
problem North Port has, try-
ing to make up for the money
lost from new construction.
Maybe it should be merged
with Sarasota County, still run
as a volunteer, but let the
county collect the impact
fees, pay for future growth
and future equipment.
Special treatment. The
painting of the Venice hospi-
tal building should have gone
before the ARB because it is a
major change. Special treat-
ment was given to the Venice
hospital. Other people would
have had to jump the hoops.
The board members of the
Venice hospital are the ones
who allowed us to get out of
control. They sold our hospi-
tal. It needs to be merged with
Sarasota Memorial, if possi-
ble, and you can vote mem-
bers in and you know what's
going on. The budgets would-

lion is allowed to be green.
Despite all this, your point
is well made and understood.
There is a very simple adjust-

would resolve all this and
minimize accidents at the
same time: Put in a two-sec-
!ond delay after red but before
green for the other direction.

State warns about new identity theft scam


STAFF REPORT


State officials are warning
residents to be on the lookout
for a new identity theft
scheme, according to a state-
ment released Tuesday.
In the scheme, a victim
receives a phone call from
someone claiming to be a
local court worker who tells
the victim .,they failed to
report for jury duty, the report
stated. To further put the vic-
tim off-guard, they may say
an arrest warrant has been


issued.
When the victim says they
never received a jury duty
notice, the scammer asks for
personal information to
check their records..
This scheme has already
been reported in Michigan,
Ohio, Texas, Arizona, Illinois,
Pennsylvania, Minnesota,
Oregon and Washington, the
report states.
The scheme seems to be a
spin-off of one in which a
caller or an e-mailer poses as
an employee of a financial


institution requesting infor-
mation to reactivate a victim's
bank account.
Scammers may set up fake
charities to prey on people's
sympathy for victims of
Hurricane Katrina.
The state offers the follow-
ing tips:
Do not give your person-
al information to a telephone
or e-mail solicitor.
Only give to disaster relief
charities you know are reli-
able, and beware of "copy-
cat" names that sound like


reputable charities.
Make checks payable to
the charitable organization
and not to an individual col-
lecting a donation.
Carry only a few credit
cards with you.
Shred all credit card re-
ceipts and solicitations, can-
celed checks and financial
documents before throwing
them away.
Don't leave outgoing mail
in your mailbox overnight.
Check your credit report
at least twice a year.


Help protect your children when they are alone


STAFF REPORT

With the arrival of the new
school year, many children
with working parents spend
time at the end of their day
home alone. It is important
that families establish a spe-
cific plan for this situation to
address safety concerns.
This plan might include
the following:
Ask yourself if your child
physically and emotionally
ready to handle time alone at
home.
Pay attention to your
child's feelings about staying
home alone.

Deputies cleared in


North Port shooting


STAFF REPORT

On Sept. 16 the. state attor-
ney's office ruled the action of
deputies from the Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office were
justified in a shooting that
occurred Aug. 22 in North
Port.
At 9:50 a.m. that day the
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office was called by North
Port Police to assist with a
man who was barricaded in
his house at 1240 Dustin
Road, North Port. North Port
Police detectives had a war-
rant for Raemond Eichel-
kraut's arrest for domestic
violence and aggravated as-
sault.
The Sarasota County Sher-
iff's S.W.A.T. team responded
and was told Eichelkraut was
in the house and armed with
a handgun. The suspect
spoke with his mother-in-law
several times and Sarasota
County sheriff's negotiators
called him 119 times during
numerous hours of negotia-
tion, yet Eichelkraut refused
to surrender to arrest.
Sarasota SWAT team then
shot tear gas into the house.
After hearing several shots
from the house, SWAT team
members entered the resi-
dence at about 7:20 p.m.


Eichelkraut was located in
the master bathroom bathtub
wearing a painter's mask and
holding a handgun to his face.
He had three scuba-diving air
tanks and a shotgun on the
floor of the bathroom. The
SWAT negotiator then en-
tered the residence and con-
tinued to request Eichelkraut
to put the weapon down.
When he turned it from his
face toward the officers, they
fatally shot him.
The Sarasota County Sher-
iff's Office Shooting Review
Board determined the dep-
uties did not violate any
department policies or proce-
dures.
The state attorney's office
found the evidence indicates
this was a justifiable use of
deadly force and will take no
further action in this matter.

quilting bee

While watching the Hur-
ricane Katrina relief efforts on
. TV Penny Dunckley came up
with the idea of making quilts
for the victims. She always
associates quilts with comfort
and joy and believes each quilt
comes with the loving spirit its
maker brings to the project.
Penny invites experienced
and novice quilters to make
any size quilt. Phone Penny at
488-7361 for further informa-
tion.
Penny plans to send the
quilts to the American Quilt
Society in Kentucky where
they will be distributed to
Hurricane Katrina victims.
Penny hopes this project
encourages parents, teachers,
grandparents, children and
friends to work together. She
asks the quilts be personalized
with permanent pen on the
back of one of the squares.
Penny suggests you write the
first names of everyone work-
ing on the quilt and a one or
two sentence sentiment to the
recipient.
If you can't quife place
where you've heard Penny's
name before let me remind
you she is one of the wonder-
ful musicians with The Venice
Symphony. Penny plays the
violin with the group. She also
gives private music lessons
and will be making a group
quilt with her students.
Penny has already received
.two quilts and has commit-
ments from Venice Symphony
Executive Director Jean Peters
to make a quilt and from this
columnist.

Finally


BY JEREMY ROTTGEN
STAFF WRITER

A cub was pawing at the
door in early 2005. Now, full
grown, this lions official.',
The Laurel Lions club was
officially chartered on Satur-
day, Sept. 10. They are consid-
ered a great partner for the
Venice Lions club.
"It took 58 years for the
Venice Lions club to charter a
new club," said Venice Lions
Club President Keith Back-
haus. "You think Venice is
conservative?"
In attendance were City
Manager Marty Black and
Lions Club District Governor
Norma Jean Andrews.
"The Lions club has re-
stored sight to 5 million peo-
ple," Backhaus said.
"The Lions club motto is
'we serve.' I think that fits the
spirit of this community in
Laurel."
Charter members of the
Laurel Lions club include
Andrew Jordan, Joe Doss,
Annette Savin, Charles Mc-
Leod, Sandra Sims Terry, Rory
Dubin and B.J. McCoy. All are
officers of the new Laurel
Lions club.
"I am so jealous that some
of these folks are committed


* O


the Laurel Lions club is official


to the Laurel Lions club,
because I would love to have
them in the Venice Lions
club," Backhaus said. "They
have compassion; They have
the coqnpassion to succeed
and make changes in the
community."
"If you don't want to serve
you don't want to be a lion,"
said Laurel Lions club
President Charles McLeod.
"The only satisfaction you get
out of this is that you made a
difference in someone else's
life. People have goodwill and
you have to bring it to their
attention."
McLeod was instrumental
in starting the club for Laurel.
He first joined the Lions in
1969 in New York because he
thought it was the greatest
organization in the world.
McLeod became a district
governor, which is the highest
rank in Lions, for the Brook-
lyn and Queens boroughs in
New York City.
"We are all God's children
and we are here to help each
other," McLeod said. "Some
of us are more fortunate than
others and therefore should."
The Lions club is the
biggest major service organi-
zation in the World and it
offers services beyond the


reach of the blind and deaf. If
somebody needs help paint-
ing a house, sending a child to
college or employment, the
Lions club can help.
"It just, so happens that I
am a past district governor,"
he said. "I went to a Lions
club meeting in Capetown,
South Africa, in 1974, which
was not a good place for a
black man to be. When I say
the Lions are international, I
really mean it."
According to the The
International Association of
Lions Clubs Web site, it began
as the dream of Chicago busi-
nessman Melvin Jones. He
believed that local business
clubs should expand their
horizons from purely profes-
sional concerns to the better-
ment of their communities
and the world at large. Jones'
group, the Business Circle of
Chicago, agreed. After con-
tacting similar groups around
the United States, an organi-
zational meeting was held on
June 7, 1917, in Chicago, I11.
The new group took the
name of one of the invited
groups, the "Association of
Lions Clubs," and a national
convention was held in Dal-
las, Texas, in October of that
year.


Laur6l Lions club member Sandra Sims Terry, along with other members are led around the
room by Venice Lions club members, representing both service to the blind and guidance from
the neighboring club.


In 1925, Helen Keller ad-
dressed the Lions interna-
tional convention in Cedar
Point, Ohio. She challenged,
Lions to become "knights of
the blind in the crusade
against darkness." From this
time, Lions clubs have been
actively involved in service to
the blind and visually im-
paired.
"Since then the Lions have
changed," McLeod said.
In addition to sight pro-
grams, Lions Clubs AInter-


national is committed to pro-
viding services for youth.
Lions clubs also work to im-
prove dhe environment, build
homes for the disabled, sup-
port diabetes-education, con-
duct hearing programs and,
through' their foundation,
provide disaster relief around
the world. Lions Clubs In-
ternational has grown to in-
clude 1.4 million men and
women in 46,000 clubs locat-
ed in 193 countries and geo-
graphic areas.,

At this moment nearly 40
million American women are
dealing with menopause
issues. They're feeling alone
and unsure about how to pro-
ceed (and so are their fami-
lies) now that research studies
have linked medical hor-
mone replacement therapy
with risk for cancers, heart
disease, blood clots, osteo-
porosis, gallstones, asthma,
diabetes and Parkinson's dis-
ease.
If you're a woman who's
35 or older, these could be
signs that you are facing the
challenge of menopause. If
you're her partner, you need
to be informed.
What will these women do
to cope with the hot flashes,
depression, anxiety, hair
problems, weight gain, sleep
problems and more that
menopause can bring?
Hear the founder of the
Wellness Institute and Wal-
den University faculty mem-
ber, Dr. Carolyn Chambers
Clark, speak about the na-


tural process of menopause
and what you can do to
make it a positive experience,
at Venice Public Library, 6:30
p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 28.
Clark hasn't left out part-
ners, friends and even fami-
lies of women going through
the natural process called
menopause. Usually the
people in the menopausal
woman's life notice changes
in their loved one, but are
often clueless about what to
do to help.
There will be a drawing for
one lucky person to receive a
free, uncorrected proof of
Dr. Clark's book, "Living Well
with Menopause, What Your
Doctor Doesn't Tell You that
You Need to Know." Other
copies of her book will be
available for sale and person-
alized autographs.
"Living Well with Meno-
pause, What Your Doctor
Doesn't TellYou thatYou Need
to Know" provides simple,
easy-to-follow directions for
enlightening others about
the menopause experience
and shows how to work
together to enhance the,
process.

WORDS WORTH
HEARING








By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. What are the advantages
and disadvantages to the
different styles of hearing
aids?
A. There are two main types
of hearing aids, Behind-the-
Ear and In-the-Ear. In-the-
Ear hearing aids come in a
number of different sizes
with the largest size called
ITE (In-the-Ear) then slightly
smaller called HS (Half size
shell), ITE (In-the-Canal) and
CIC (Completely-in-the-
Canal). Behind-the-Ear
hearing aids are the largest
type and are the most
powerful and the least prone
to whistle. Their micro-
phones perform better in
noise and they are able to
utilize FM systems. However
they can be difficult to
operate because the controls
lie behind the ear and the
instrument can be prone to
more moisture problems than
In-the-Ear styles. In-the-Ear
hearing aids are easier to
operate because it is made of
a single ear piece but are also
more susceptible to wax
blockages within the receiver
.port. The smallest hearing
aids (CIC) are of course
cosmetically appealing but
additionally have a more
natural sound than other
styles because the
microphone lies deep within
the ear canal and does not
pick up extra external noise.
Due to their small size, CIC
instruments are equipped
with few options and have
limited amplifying power.
This is a limited overview of
the different style hearing
aids available today. The only
way to ensure that you are
purchasing the proper style
instrument for your hearing
loss is to be evaluated by a
certified Audiologist who is
specially trained to do this.
Audiologists are obligated to
insure that the patient
receives the proper style and
size amplifier for their degree
of hearing loss. No other
hearing provider can make
this guarantee. Before
deciding on which style
hearing aid is best for you, be
sure to see the Audiologist at
Woodmere Hearing Center
& Balance Center by calling
492-4327 today.

I'd like to share with you a

Did you know that baby
river otters don't like to get wet?
And they don't take to swim-

actually has to teach them that
water is the source of food.
After that, they learn to swim
very well indeed. I can't help
but smile when I see these
sleek little creatures dashing in
and about the water.
Wolves make wonderful
parents. Actually, the whole
wolf pack (usually from four
to seven individuals) cares
for each litter of cubs. Most
wolf packs consist of a breed-
ing alpha pair, and one or
two previous litters of their
offspring. So they're usually a
related group. The "aunts" and
"uncles" watch over the little

Celebrating a life lived well


VIRGINIA DEUPREE
GUEST COLUMNIST

For years I have told my
children that when I die, send
up 50 firecrackers and 50 bal-
loons, and have a party for all
my friends in celebration. But
now, I'm so old that most of
my friends are gone. I'm so
old that I sound like a witch.
Honest! I know this because
the other day I heard my
squeaky, raspy voice on a
tape.
I want to talk about Harry
and' Gladys, and memorial
services and obituaries. I
know that we all deny that we
will ever need to think about
final plans for ourselves or
someone dear.


Gladys and Harry were
good friends of my husband,
Joe, and myself. We went on
cruises together, to the beach,
etc. They were a glamorous
couple. Harry insisted on
sunning himself at the beach
without sun tan protection,
and later died of skin cancer.
Before Harry died, he
planned his own memorial
service. It was the most mem-
orable service I have ever
attended. It was a glorious
celebration of a wonderful
life. Children and grandchil-
dren stood up and related
funny stories and happy
memories about Harry. Of
course, a few tears were shed
among the laughter. But it
was not a sad or depressing
event. It so happens that the
minister in Englewood was
also a drummer. Harry, being
a very patriotic citizen, asked
him to end the service with a
dramatic finish of Glory,
Glory Hallelujah from "The
Battle Hymn of the Republic,"
on the drums. What a won-
derful way to go. Obviously
everyone was in a mood for
the luncheon that followed.


Many funerals are tragic
and sad, but when one has
lived a long and good life, why
not celebrate that life and the
one to come?When I was a lit-
tle girl, about 6 or 7, and never
missed a Sunday at church, I
asked my mother a question.
"Why, if God is so wonderful
and good, aren't people
happy in church?Why are ser-
vices so sad and serious? Do
you wonder if that is why so
many young people have lost
interest in church and reli-
gion?"
Well now that I have
expressed that opinion, I
want to talk about obituaries.
As a newspaper gal, I have
written hundreds of them.
Today's standard obituary
states only the basic facts. I
always tried to start with at
least one nice sentence about
something the deceased per-
son was known for. Maybe he
or she was a scout leader, or
someone who always helped
the neighbors. It seems to me,
everyone deserves some
recognition. Last year a friend

STAFF REPORT
The women of the Hot
Dogs & Cool Cats committee
recently strutted their stuff for
Elvis impersonator Jim Koen-
iger during a gala planning
meeting.
Chris Voelker's home res-
onated with turbo-femininity
as the women unleashed their
red carpet-walking, papa-
razzi-mugging glamour. "El-
vis" entertained the divas and
would-be starlets with a se-
lection of songs and promised
more hunka hunka burning
love at the Hot Dogs & Cool
Cats gala Saturday, Nov. 12, at
6:30 p.m. in the Serendipity
Ballroom of the Sarasota
Country Club.
Fashion plates, celebrities
and everyone in between will
see and be seen as they
traipse up the red carpet for a
priority entrance in a glitter
extravaganza. Once past the
throng of photographers they
will enjoy an open bar featur-

Explore Mexico's Copper Canyon in AOE style


STAFF REPORT


The stunning beauty of
one of the world's most scenic
rail routes awaits your arrival
in 2006 aboard American
Orient Express' (AOE) re-
vamped Copper Canyon &
Colonial Mexico itinerary.
AOE's revised itinerary
gives passengers the conve-
nience of traveling round-trip
from El Paso, Texas, as well as
the unparalleled experience
of traveling through desert
beauty to sites only accessible
by rail.
After heading south of the
border via motorcoach, the
journey begins with a guided
tour of the Mexican state capi-
tal of Chihuahua. Passengers
can spend their day exploring
the richly decorated Chihua-
hua Cathedral, the Govern-
ment Palace, and the Museum
of the Revolution, formerly the
home of Pancho Villa. At the
exquisite art nouveau-style
mansion of the Quinta Gamer-
os Museum, which houses the
University of Chihuahua art
collection, guests are whisked
from the hustle of the city and
into the history and archeology
of the region.
The next stop is the city of
Creel where guests tour the
Jesuit-built Cusarare Mission
and view a presentation by
the curator. That afternoon
passengers get their first
glimpse of the Copper Can-


yon as the train stops in the
canyon side village of
Divisadero. Guests have the
opportunity to meet the
Tarahumara Indians, who
inhabit one of the most isolat-
ed regions in North America
as well as shop among local
vendors selling handmade
baskets, wood carvings and.
embroidery.
The following morning,
guests awaken on the rails of
Mexico's famous Copper
Canyon, or the Barranca del
Cobre, as it is called by locals.
Four times the size of our own
Grand Canyon, the Copper
Canyon is a vast network .of
six canyons and rivers. Along
the route, the scenery is ever
changing with snow-covered
mountain peaks, sparkling
lakes and rich farms, orchards
and grasslands. The canyon is
only accessible by rail and
passengers spend the entire
morning on board the train as
it passes through 83 tunnels,
crosses 35 trestles and climbs
more than 8,000 feet into the
Sierra Madres to view the
pristine beauty of one of the
Western Hemisphere's great-
est wonders. In the evening,
after a walking tour of the
colonial town of El Fuerte,
dinner is held at the 1890
Hotel Posado Hidalgo.
The next morning passen-
gers find themselves in the
historic railroad town of Los
Mochis. Passengers will enjoy


lunch at the Santa Anita
Hotel's world-renowned rest-
aurant before traveling via
motor coach to the beautiful
seaport of Topolobampo Bay.
An afternoon boat cruise on
the bay provides unforget-
table views of the landscape
as well as the abundant
marine life, such as dolphins
and colorful birds, living
among the shores and in the
warm waters.
Along the final miles back
to the United States, the train
makes a second pass through
the Copper Canyon, a new
feature of this updated itiner-
ary. Although guests have
seen it once, it'll feel like the
first time, as the canyon views
will be amazingly different
with the changes in the play
of light. The train stops once
again in Divisadero for lunch
at the Hotel Posada Barrancas
Mirador, which sits near the
highest point of the canyon
and is a perfect place to take
in the awe-inspiring views of
this stunning natural wonder.
In the evening, a farewell
reception and dinner is held
on board the train.
Tours depart round-trip
from El Paso on Jan. 28, Feb. 4,
11, 18, 25 and March 4. Rates
start at $3,490 per person in-
cluding the $500 early book-
ing incentive (based on Vin-
tage Pullman category and
double occupancy) and in-
clude overnight accommoda-

Quit kicking yourself. If it
ran between 2000 and 2005
on public TV it's included in a
new DVD anthology of all 43
shows in the series.
The popular program,
which made its debut in 1990,
is now carried by 300 stations.
The set includes seven
discs of the episodes plus a
bonus DVD taking you on
one of travel guru Steves'


video ad for his guidebook
and touring company,
though you can't help but
wish his knowledgeable
group leader would join you
on your next European vaca-

visit a nation's hot attractions
while not overlooking places
that provide cultural context,
such as family inns and pock-

advice. Throughout the pro-

style cotton shirt and trous-
ers, and he travels with a
modest backpack, even on
two-week trips.
Watching some tour
members struggle with hefty
suitcases is sure to convert
you to his "pack light" phi-

Each disc covers a geo-
graphic area: Great Britain,
Ireland, Spain and Portugal,
France and Benelux, Ger-

ter will be of special interest
for travelers looking for new
itineraries. It includes such
emerging destinations as
Slovenia, Croatia, Bulgaria
and eastern Turkey.
Updated editions of the set
are possible if major changes
are warranted, said Robin
Goddard, Steves' publicist.
The collection retails for
$69.95 online and in book-

Musical biography of Ethel Waters makes its world premiere


STAFF REPORT

One night in 1917, Ethel
Waters sang at a Halloween
party being held at a Phil-
adelphia bar. In that moment,
she transformed her life.
Without that moment, Waters
might have spent the rest of
her life in poverty and obliv-
ion. Instead, she became a
superstar. Florida Studio The-
atre brings this true-life story
to the stage in the world pre-
miere of "Ethel Waters: His
Eye is on the Sparrow," writ-
ten by Larry Parr, opening
Friday, Oct. 7, in FST's Keating
Theatre.
Born in 1896 to a teenage
rape victim, Ethel Waters
began her life in abject pover-
ty, growing up in the slums of
Philadelphia and the sur-
rounding area. She never
lived in one place for more
than a few weeks at a time.
"No one raised me," she once
said. "I just ran wild."
Fortunately, Waters was
able to take care of herself -
and to sing. When she began
working the black vaudeville
circuit in 1917, she was
known as "Sweet Mama
Stringbean" because of her
tall and slim figure. Her
break-out song was "St. Louis
Blues." Although made fa-
mous by other singers, Wat-
ers' take on the song was
much softer. While she could
sing with an earthy, blues-
infused voice like her idols,


Bessie Smith and Ma Rainey,
Waters was known more for
her impeccable diction and
the clarity of her voice. Fellow
singer Alberta Hunter once
called Waters "a very refined
performer."
Waters' fame and appeal
grew when she recorded
"Dinah" and "Sweet Georgia
Brown" in the early 1920s.
Throughout the 1920s and
1930, she headlined in clubs
and theaters across the coun-
try, including the famous
Cotton Club, and also ap-
peared in several Broadway
shows and movies. But it was
the song "Stormy Weather"
that really got her career into
high drive. Composer Harold
Arlen had written the song
especially for Waters and her
performance of it at the
Cotton Club became the talk
of the town.
"I was singing the story of
my misery and confusion, the
story of the wrongs and out-
rages done to me by people I
had loved and trusted,"
Waters said of her perfor-
mance.
When Irving Berlin heard
her sing "StormyWeather," he
cast her in his Broadway show
"As Thousands Cheer." Al-
though Waters had appeared
in previous Broadway pro-
ductions, they had mostly
been unsuccessful. 'As Thou-
sands Cheer" established her
as a true, bona-fide Broadway
star. She went on to appear in

actresses portraying Ethel
Waters in FST's premiere of
"Ethel Waters: His Eye is on
the Sparrow."

several more Broadway hits,
including "Cabin in the Sky"
and Carson McCullers' "The
Member of the Wedding."
Waters was later cast in the
movie versions of both.
In the 1940s, an older -
and heavier Waters rein-
vented herself, becoming a
dramatic actress. She ap-
peared in "Mamba's Daught-
ers" and "Pinky," for which
she received an Academy


Award nomination for Best
Supporting Actress. While her
days as a singer may have
been over, Waters was any-
thing but idle. She penned
her autobiography, naming it
after the song with which she
was most associated ("His
Eye is on the Sparrow") and
performed with evangelist
Billy Graham on his crusades.
By the time of her death in the
late 1970s, Waters no longer
resembled the hot, young
singer she once was. But her
voice and her spirit live on in
the many recordings she
made.
Larry Parr, author of "Ethel
Waters: His Eye is on the
Sparrow," is a Sarasota resi-
dent. His plays have been
produced in regional theaters
all across the United States
and have garnered him a
number of awards and hon-
ors. "Hi-Hat-Hattie," a musi-
cal biography of Hattie Mc-
Daniel, won Kansas City's
Drama Desk Award for Best
Musical and the American
Cinema Foundation awarded
him their first prize for the
screenplay version. Parr is
also a three-time Florida In-
dividual Artist Recipient, for
"Hi-Hat-Hattie," "Invasion of
Privacy" and "Ethel Waters:
His Eye is on the Sparrow." He
has twice won the Southern
Appalachian Repertory The-
ater's Annual Play Com-
petition with "My Castle's
Rockin' (a musical biogra-


phy of Alberta Hunter) and
"Sundew" (which was pro-
duced by FST in Summer
2005). In 1995, he became the
first white playwright pro-
duced in the history of the
National Black Theatre Fest-
ival with the production of
"My Castle's Rockin.'"
Written as a one-person
show, EthelWaters portrays the
larger-than-life figure without
holding anything back. The
role of Waters is as vibrant and
large as the woman herselfwas.
In casting the role of Ethel
Waters, FST has taken an un-
precedented step. The role is so
demanding that FST has cast
two actresses to fill Waters'
shoes.
"No one actress could play
this part, with full out acting
and singing, eight shows per
week. By casting two actress-
es of excellent skill, the play
will remain fresh and alive for
every performance and every
audience that experiences it,"
said Richard Hopkins, FST's
artistic director and CEO.
One set of Waters' shoes
will be filled by Jannie Jones,
who returns to FST after
appearing in last year's
Mainstage opener "It Ain't
Nothin' But the Blues." Jones
has a number of FST credits
including "Too Darn Hot: A
Tribute to Cole Porter," "One-
Hit Wonders," "The All Night
Strut" and "Blues in the
Night." Coincidentally, Jones
has brought another diva to


life on the FST stages. Jones
originated the role of Alberta
Hunter in Parr's "My Castle's
Rockin.' "
"I'm delighted that Jannie
has been cast to play Ethel,"
said Parr.
Joining Jones in bringing
Waters to life is FST newcom-
er, Chaundra Cameron. Cam-
eron and Jones are real-life
friends and it was actually
Jones' suggestion that Cam-
eron be cast. Cameron has
appeared in "Ma Rainey's
Black Bottom" at The Source
Theater, "Crowns" (also with
Jones) at St. Louis Rep and the
Cincinnati Playhouse and
"Sophisticated Ladies" at
Pioneer Theatre.
"Ethel Waters: His Eye is on
the Sparrow" was featured as
a staged reading in FST's
Florida Playwrights Festival in
2002. The reading was direct-
ed by Dennis Courtney, who
will return to direct the pro-
duction this fall.
The world premiere of "His
Eye is on the Sparrow" begins
with previews Wednesday,
Oct. 5, opens Friday, Oct. 7,
and runs through Saturday,
Dec. 3.
"Ethel Waters: His Eye is on
the Sparrow" will be present-
ed at FST's Keating Theatre.
Tickets range from $19 for
previews to $32-$34 for regu-
lar performances and may be
purchased from the FST box
office in person or by calling
366-9000.

Nonprofit Resource Center celebrates fifth anniversary


STAFF REPORT

Wednesday, Sept. 28, 4:30-
7 p.m., the Nonprofit Re-
source Center will celebrate
its fifth anniversary with a fes-
tive reception recognizing the.
collective good works of the
local nonprofit community.
All nonprofit board and staff
members in Sarasota and
Manatee Counties are invited
to enjoy delectable bites, liba-
tions and a brief program
announcing a new service to
further strengthen our local
nonprofits. A major award for




publish- of the Su, Head Nwpp-


nonprofit leadership excel-
lence will also be presented
by the Community Foun-
dation of Sarasota County.
The celebration will take
place at the Community
Foundation of Sarasota
County, Leila and Michael
Gompertz Center, located at
2635 Fruitville Road, Sara-
sota.
RSVPs are requested by
Monday, Sept. 26. Call 556-
7106.
The Nonprofit Resource
Center has become a vital
resource to our growing non-,
profit community. In 2003,
the NRC was adopted as a
program of the Community
Foundation of Sarasota
County. The Community
Foundation increases philan-


thropy by building perma-
nent, flexible charitable funds
and awards grants and schol-,
arships that make a differ-
ence in the community.
The NRC provides a critical
third facet of the Foundation's
work by helping charitable
organizations increase their
capacity to serve the commu-
nity. With more than 1,300
nonprofits in Sarasota Coun-
ty alone, the demand for re-
sources is great.
Under the leadership of
Christie Lewis, recently pro-
moted to vice president of
Nonprofit Capacity Building,
the NRC has greatly expand-
ed its services to local non-
profit organizations.
Professional development
workshops, computer and


soft skill classes (in partner-
ship with Sarasota County
government), a local board
matching service (in partner-
ship with Leadership Sara-
sota County and the Sarasota
County Young Professionals
Group), a nonprofit focused
lending library, searchable
grant database, biweekly in-
formational e-newsletter, and
an online nonprofit job bank
are among the services pro-
vided by the Nonprofit Re-
source Center.
For more information
about the Nonprofit Resource
Center, organizations that
have benefited from its ser-
vices, and informative statis-
tics, contact Lewis at 556-
7102 or visit suncoastnon-
profits.org.

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

Different Way


I


BY CHRISTINA ELWELL
STAFF WRITER
Island Village Montessori
School is celebrating two big
milestones this fall.
"We are proud to be cele-
brating our fifth year," Kym
Elder, director of IVMS, said.
"This is also the first year
we've had a middle school
here.:",
The sci'ool has, grown sig-
nificantly since it opened five
years ago.
"When we started out, we
had 175 students and seven
classrooms. We now have 325
students and 17 classrooms,"
Elder said.
IVNIS is one of about 10
Montessori schools in Flor-
ida.
The holistic approach
S Montessori education, or
"education for life," is slightly
different from the typical
public school method.
"It's a holistic kind of
approach," Elder explained.
"We are as good as regular
public schools; some kids
take to our way of teaching
and some don't."
Montessori is a method of
teaching that iuwolves much
more individual and small-
group learning. It is based on
self-direction and gives stu-
dents the chance to move
more at their own pace.
"Not everybody has to be
on the same page," Elder said.
"We are trying to work with
the kids so they don't feel
they have to rush along. Then
if a student is really good at
something, they can move
along and help others."
Another difference be-
tween Montessori schools
and public schools is multi-
aged classes. For example,
one classroom consists of a
mix of first- and second-
graders. This gives the more


experienced children the
chance to help the younger
students and lets the kids
spend time with each other
without being restricted to
their own grade level.
"There's a lot of responsi-
bility that the children have
for each other," Elder said.
"They have role models. They
act as peer teachers, which
leads to self-esteem."
Students at IVMS don't.
follow typical lesson plans.
Children as young as first
grade are already learning
French and Spanish.
"This is the time to teach
them this," Elder said.
On the horizon
Although students have to
apply to be accepted, IVMS
is free for students from
kindergarten to fifth grade.
"Our goal is to make the
education as affordable as
we can," Elder said. ',
IVM S also has a new Early
Childhood Program. This
starts young children on for-
eign languages, geography,
computers, science, reading,
math and handwriting.
"We like to start our chil-
dren at 3 years old, if we
can," Elder said.
Elder believes the new
middle school program that
began this year will bring new
technology into the campus.
"It's heavily weighted on
technology." she said.
IVMS is developing new
programs for its middle
school students, such as an
online lesson library, and
Elder hopes to soon have
one computer per student.
"\Ve are getting close," she
said.,

Agency staffers helping


misplaced workers


By DAN MEARNS
BUSINEss EDITOR
Two local employment consultants
traveled to Mississippi last week to
provide critical services to workers
who were victimized by Hurricane
Katrina.
Dee Rutko and Manuel Gutierrez,
both based at the Career and Service
Center of Charlotte County, are
spending seven days in the state
under a program coordinated by the
Florida Agency for Workforce Innova-
tion. The agency and its partners from
the regional work-force boards have
begun manning self-contained One-
Stop Job centers spread across Missis-
sippi's hurricane-trammeled Gulf
Coast.
"They'll going to assist with com-
pleting applications for unemploy-
ment," said Patricia Fryer, who as ser-
vices coordinator for the Southwest
Florida Workforce Council is also
based at the Career and Service Cen-
ter, 19500 Toledo Blade Blvd.,
Port Charlotte.
Rutko serves as employer services
Resource Room coordinator at the
center, while Gutierrez is a member of
the Workforce Council staff.

immediately provide relief for
those who have been so dev-
astated by Hurricane Katrina,
and our associates and work-
force partners are doing an
outstanding job on-site to help
hurricane victims."
Within the past two weeks,
the agency and its partners
from have deployed, and
manned mobile one-stop ser-
vices in Pascagoula, Ocean
Springs, Bay St. Louis,
Picayune, Gulfport and Jack-
son. Working closely with
employees of the Mississippi
Department of Employment,
these Florida volunteers have
assisted Hurricane Katrina vic-


times in filing for unemploy-
ment compensation and in
accessing other needed ser-
vices and information.
In addition, a half-dozen
associates of the agency's
Unemployment Compensa-
tion unit are taking claims at
the Jackson Call Center.
Across Florida, agency staff
and regional partners also are
assisting Hurricane Katrina
evacuees from Louisiana, Mis-
sissippi and Alabama with a
wide range of employment
and unemployment assistance
and other forms of humanitar-
ian aid.
Within Florida, assistance is
being provided in the Regional
Workforce Boards' One-Stop
Centers. Evacuees can use the


computer resource rooms in
the centers to file unemploy-
ment compensation claims
and access a variety of other
services.
Displaced workers can
apply for assistance to be pro-
vided from federal agencies
and from their home states,
look for temporary work in
Florida, prepare/update
resumes and access other
needed services/information
provided on the Internet.
The One-Stop Centers can
also refer evacuees to Red
Cross and FEMA resources.
Evacuees can locate the near-
est One-Stop Center by calling
the Employ Florida toll-free
number (866) FLA-2345 or vis-
iting EmployFlorida.com.


Helpful information for dis-
placed Hurricane Katrina vic-
tims in Florida can be located
at the state of Florida's Web
portal for information on Hur-
ricane Katrina recovery and
relief at www.myflorida.com,
which includes one-stop
information on the services
available for evacuees in Flori-
da and direct access to relief
organizations for donating
supplies, services and funds.
Workforce information and
resources can be found on
AWI's disaster recovery
