Defining and counting school dropouts


The Sarasota County School District is looking
over preliminary statistics on the latest gradua-
tion and dropout rates, but differing methodolo-
gies and erroneous information continue to con-
fuse the public.


EDITOR'S NOTE: This is part
one of a two-part series on the
graduation rate in Sarasota
County. Friday What SCOPE
concluded when it reviewed the
numbers.
BYGREGGILES
STAFF WRITER

Preliminary information
on the percentage of students
who graduated from (and
conversely, those who drop-
ped out of) Sarasota County


high schools was released
Monday by the Florida De-
partment of Education to lo-
cal school districts, but it's too
early to make the results pub-
lic, say state and local school
officials.
Districts have until Oct. 28
to review the raw data and
submit corrections to the de-
partment.
'At this point the figures
are extremely preliminary
and could be far from accu-
rate," said district spokes-


woman SheilaWeiss.
The final 2004-05 gradua.
tion rate and associated
reports are
scheduled for
release by
DOE early
next month.
Districts
officials are
hoping the
new data will
be good news
for the dis- Norris
trict. The dis-
trict's dropout rate, in partic-
ular, has been declining
steadily, except for one not-
able instance, as it enters a
highly charged political sea-
son that will likelyN culminate
in the adoption or rejection of
a one-mill property tax by


public vote in March.
Data released earlier this
year citing a 2.9 percent one-
year dropout
rate sent one
education
gadfly into a
tailspin. New
figures are
likely to con-
tinue to draw
attention.
Kunerth A rock and a
hard place
Alan Kunerth, a retired
manufacturer's agent 'and
self-professed number
cruncher turned gadfly (bet-
ter known for jumping parties
when he ran unsuccessfully
against Rep. Nancy Detert in
1998), doesn't buy the low


dropout figure. He even met
with researchers at the Urban
Institute in Washington, D.C.,
this summer to attempt to
verify his own data.
The think tank has pro-
duced studies suggesting U.S.
Department of Education
and state statistics tend to
underreport dropout rates
and over report graduation
rates.
Kunerth's gut feeling, al-
though he can't prove it, is the
dropout rate is much higher
than the district will admit,
aind he's been firing off e-
mails to local politicians and
political pundits over the past
six months claiming so.
It all started when the

Children watch a video at Escape School at the Venice Are' Chamber of Commerce
Saturday. Sponsored locally by Ivy League and Lemon Bay Funeral Home, the program
gave pointers on how to avoid becoming a victim of a kidnapping.


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

If all abducted children behaved the way
12-year-old Nlickenzie Smith did when she
was abducted, there would be fewer
abducted children.
What she did when she and her 9-year-
old brother Kaidan were snatched off a
Utah street July 26 is exactly what a Venice
Escape School is trying to teach.
"While he was driving," Smith told
MSNBC's Dan Abrams in an Aug. 1 TV
inteniew, "I was actually just hitting him
and punching."
And, she told Abrams, calling him things
like "idiot," "jerk," "loser."
The abductor got so rattled he let both
Nlickenzie and Kaidan go. Both children


were unharmed.
She gave police a detailed description of
the abductor.
The suspect in that case is awaiting trial.
Smart, safe choices
The Escape School concept was devel-
oped in 1996 by a former police officer.
Escape School teaches children how to
make smart, safe choices in potentially
dangerous situations.
Florida Attorney General Charlie Crist's
office brought the program to Florida's
public schools following the murder of
Carlie Brucia in February 2004. Brucia was
the 11-year-old Sarasota girl whose abduc-
tion was captured on videotape.

Venice failed to meet

annexation goals

A document in the Evaluation and Appraisal
Report shows the county is developing land the
city had targeted for incorporation.


BY JJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


A decade ago, city officials
mapped out annexation goals
that included incorporating
everything east of Albee Farm
Road all the way to the
lMyakka River.
SThe Evaluation and Ap-
praisal Report in front of
planning commission Tues-
day reveals the city has fallen
well short of bringing in all
the land targeted for annexa-
tion in the current compre-
hensive plan, which was
approved in 1999.
If Venice had aggressively
followed through, the main-
land boundaries of.city limits
would have been Center Road
to the south, the county land-
fill to the north, the IMyakka
River to the east and Albee
Farm Road to the west.
The city didn't meet that
goal, especially in the Center
and River road areas, and now
is dealing with the thousands
upon thousands of new
homes approved by Sarasota
County just on the other side
of city limits on what used to
be mostly undeveloped land.
The annexation strategy
sought to control how much
and what types of develop--
ment would come into the
area, as well as bringing in
large impact fees to the city.


Freeing


treasury.
Neither of those has hap-
pened, so Venice residents
have watched large-scale,
county-approved develop-
ments across the border.
"Some of the things that
have happened the past few
years make me wonder if
there really are regional part-
nerships out there, especially
when it comes to transporta-
tion," planning commission
member Benny Weaver said.
"The main impact, as far as
the city of Venice is con-
cerned, is out east of here...
How can we prepare for the
infrastructure before we get
hit by all of these?"
Too late now
Today it doesn't make
sense to annex many of the
properties, especially along
Center Road. Both the prop-
erty owner and city risk losing
money and duplicating ser-
vices by moving from the
county to the city.
The lack of financial gain
and development control in
areas that have aVenice mail-
ing address make one ques-
tion if city staff failed to exe-
cute the 1999 plan to control
growth through annexation.
Less than a quarter of the
land marked for annexation

Skylar Sellitti, 11, tries unsuccessfully to pull away from Escape
School instructor Charlie Watts, who then had her try the
"windmill technique": twirling her arm toward his thumb and
breaking his hold on her.


COURSE from page 1A
T.J. Leach, 29, associate
pastor of Grace Community
Bible Church and a pacifist by
nature and calling, doesn't
have a problem with telling
children to physically resist
an abductor with whatever
means they have at their dis-
posal.
"Child safety is such an
important issue, I think it
crosses religious beliefs," he
said. "It's more of a common
sense, cultural agreement."
Leach said he has a vested
interest in child safety.
"I have an 18-month-old
and another on the way,"
Leach said. "I'm going to tell
them do whatever they have


to do as soon as they are old
enough."
GCBC is sponsoring an
Escape School Oct. 15 at the
Venice YMCA, 2 p.m. There is
no cost to participants.
SThere is another big plus to
Escape School, Leach said.
"It's designed to create
conversation (about child
safety) in the home," he said.
Common sense
The Escape School theme
is based on common sense: It
is much better to do every-
thing you can to avoid being
abducted than it is to avoid
the abductor once caught.
"Kick, scream, create a
scene, do anything to get peo-
ples' attention; go to the

parents who attended the class at the Venice Area Chamber of Commerce Saturday.


ground so it's harder for the
abductor to drag you away,"
Sarasota County Sheriff's Lt.
Chuck Lesaltato said. "The
crucial time is when the
abduction takes place; that's
when they should start kick-
ing and screaming."
Escape School also teaches
numerous methods a child
can use if physically grabbed
by an abductor.
Lesaltato said most abduc-
tions happen where there are
people around shopping
malls, playgrounds, crowded
city streets.
"They go where the chil-
dren are," he said.
One of the most effective
lessons taught in Escape
School is the "Velcro" ap-


proach instructing chil-
dren who feel threatened to
find an adult and stick to that
person likeVelcro.
Go ballistic
If the abductor gets the
child into a car, there still are a
number of things the child
can do.
"Put the window down,
scream, throw yourself on his
lap to make it harder for him
to drive, reach under the dash
and start pulling wires -
maybe the brake lights will go
out and he'll get stopped,"
Lesaltato said. "If you're
stopped behind another car
at a light, dive for the acceler-
ator and pushit down hard so
he'll rear-end the car ahead."


Law enforcement officers
also said children must not be
worried about hurting an
adult's feelings in a critical
safety situation.
Fighting a would-be
abductor is risky, but the
whole abduction scenario
carries an even greater risk.
If the abductor has a gun
or a knife, the risk increas-
es.
Law enforcement officials
said the chances of an abduc-
tor turning a child lose
unharmed are slim and none.
So, is fighting an abductor
worth the risk?
Ask NMickenzie Smith.

Tropical Bob:

Early alert

This is no time to sigh a
relief that hurricane season is
past peak.
Yes, the number of hurri-
canes tends to peak in early
September, but October is a
dangerous month for our
area. Storms in the Caribbean
Sea or Gulf of Mexico are
often directed our way.
That might be the case
with a brewing storm seem-
ingly destined to become
Tammy. Early computer
model runs bring the storm
into the gulf, then turn it in a
counter-clockwise loop.
Let's hope that doesn't hap-
pen. That's a worse-case sce-
nario for our coast because
such a storm would have a
chance to push a storm surge
our way. Stay alert to this one.

The design for accessibility improvements by Sarasota County
to Venice Avenue Bridge have been called "absurd" and a "use-
less, stupid plan" by city council member Rick Tacy, who uses a
wheelchair. Improvements have been delayed once again, with
work scheduled to start next February.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

An overpriced paint job
and handicap access points
too steep for a wheelchair
user to maneuver continue
to fuel criticisms of Sarasota
County's handling of Venice
Avenue Bridge improvements.
On top of that, the latest
word from. Sarasota County
Public.Works is that Venice
will have to wait even a little
longer for those jobs to be
finished.
Sarasota County just com-
pleted major construction on
the $3.5 million rehabilitation
project in an effort to make
the 40-year-old bridge last
another 15-20 years.
However, the county failed
to schedule any powerwash-
ing or painting as part of this
project, leading to former
council member Jim Myers
nicknaming it "Dirty Bridge."
As for making the narrow
walkways accessible to those
with physical handicaps, cur-
rent council member Rick
Tacy has pointed to the steep
grade on the bridge and ques-
tioned a person's ability to
climb it. Tacy, who uses a
wheelchair, has called the
design "absurd" and a "use-
less, stupid plan."
"I still believe that," Tacy
said in a recent e-mail to Ben
Newman of Sarasota County
Public Works.
"The reason I say that is
the sidewalk is so narrow
that one overcorrection of the
wheel would roll off the curb


and tip over into the path of
traffic. ... In my opinion, we
have an unsafe design based
on.a ridiculous hypothetical
reason. As I stated at the
council meeting, I don't know
anyone in a wheelchair that
would risk their lives crossing
that sidewalk."
That "ridiculous" and "un-
safe design," as Tacy called it,
is going to cost about anoth-
er $500,000 to install. The
money will go to cut out
wheelchair ramps at both
ends of the bridge, paint cross-
walks on the road and 'also
build stairwells lowering to the
bike path that runs along the
Intracoastal Waterway..
Tacy suggested some type
of curb along the sidewalk to
prevent wheelchair tipping.
Newman stated that a curb
would be a violation of Flor-
ida Department of Trans-
portation standards.
"The obstacles I see to
putting in a curb alongside
the edge of the sidewalk is
that it then presents a trip-
ping hazard," Newman stated.
No responses
No companies responded
to the county's request for
bids earlier this year, accord-
ing to Venice spokeswoman
Pam Johnson, which is why
the job has been readvertised
with a bid deadline of Oct.
26.
In addition to the stairwells
and wheelchair ramps, paint-
ing of the bridge using a pig-
mented, cement finish will
be included.


County commissioners
.and city council agreed to.
sign an interlocal agreement
to split the painting cost
50-50. City Manager Marty
Black sent a draft agreement
to the county six months ago,
but he has not received a
response.
At the joint county-city
meeting, Venice officials said
they must have a voice in
selecting the contractor and


Correction


SDue to a reporter's error,
incorrect information about
Sarasota County government's
employee mileage reimburse-
ment amounts appeared in
the Sept. 28 edition.
Sarasota County currently
reimburses employees 36
cents per mile, and that rate:
has not been increased since
July 2003, according to county
spokesman Martin Haire.
County commissioners must
approve increases to the mile-
age rate, and a proposal is ex-
pected to come up for a vote.
The city of Venice and the


cost before paying for half
of it. This was in response
to initial county estimates
putting the paint job at more
than $250,000.
Black admitted Tuesday
that he was unhappy with
how long bridge improve-
ments have taken.
"The last I heard, that was
not a high priority with all
of the (county's) other jobs
going on," Black said.


Sarasota County School
Board of Education raised
their rates from 37.5cents per
mile to 48.5 cents as of Sept. 1.

Clarification
An article in the Oct. 2 edi-
tion reporting on Osprey's
"Killer Korner" stated work to
correct the problems there
would be delayed four months
so Florida Light & Power could
Relocate utility lines. Mel Klein,
FP&L's Sarasota spokesman,
said the company has elimi-
nated any backlog it had and
will begin work the week of
Oct. 10 as planned.

City officials and union members from the Fraternal Order of Police finalize the three-year
contract between Venice and its police department sergeants and lieutenants. The new
annual base pay rates for lieutenants will increase in annual increments from $63,488 to
$74,750 by the last year of the contract. For sergeants, the increase will be from $56,686
to $65,000. Pictured from left to right are City Manager Marty Black, Sgt. Tom McNulty,
FOP negotiator Paul Murphy and local FOP Chair Keith Harvey. The labor agreement is
retroactive to Oct. 1, 2004, and will expire Sept. 30, 2007. The signed deal leaves Venice
patrol officers as the only city union working under an expired contract, with mediation
scheduled for later this month.


Venice to hire finance
director
Mayor Dean Calamaras will
seek the consent ofVenice City
Council to hire William Poling
to serve as the city's finance
director at the council's Oct. 11
meeting.
The announcement does
not come as a surprise, as it
was first reported inside the
Venice Gondolier Sun on Sept.
30. Calamaras made the se-
lection official Monday.
SThe position of finance
director is one of four'charter
officers who report directly to
the mayor and council. Since


1988, Poling served as finance
director for the city of New
Smyrna Beach.
The Bradenton native
holds a bachelor of science
degree in business adminis-
tration, with an emphasis in

Tower administrator plan



doesn't excte commission


A county ordinance that regulates the height,
location and construction of towers
is up for change. The notion of a local tower
administrator who could make determinations
has been rejected.


BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


A recent wave of requests
for telecommunications
towers has Sarasota County
officials scrambling to up-
date local regulations and
determine how best to ac-
commodate a fast-growing
industry that touches every-
one who carries a cell phone
around.
The county commission
has reluctantly authorized
public hearings on proposed
changes to a transmission
tower ordinance that was
adopted in 1998, but not
without a spirited discussion
about the duties a tower
administrator might assume.
"This looks like a big-time
change in the ordinance,"
commissioner David Mills
said. "I don't know if this is
going to cause trouble. We
used to have 200 people in
the room for public hear-
ings, and now we might have
one. Are we going back-
wards?"
One of the driving forces
behind changes in the coun-
ty's tower regulations is a new
Florida wireless emergency
telephone system law that
includes standards local gov-
ernments must follow when
they make decisions about
the location and construction
of towers.
Every conceivable type of
tower is scattered around the


county, including many that
predate current rules. Some
radio towers rise to more
than 500 feet and have been
out there for years. Cellular
towers are the newest breed
and typically run from 150 to
180 feet in height.
According to a county re-
port, the new state law pro-
hibits a local government
from evaluating a wireless
company's business decisions
about its service, customer
demand for its service or the
quality of its service unless
the company voluntarily pro-
vides it.
County planners have
shared with planning com-
missioners all the latest in-
formation they've gathered
to prepare them for a series
of hearings. The sessions
will produce recommenda-
tions that will be forwarded
to the county commission
this fall.
Among the many proposed
changes will be a "financial
responsibility mechanism" to
address abandoned towers.
But it was the suggestion of
a tower administrator, who
would reportedly facilitate all
tower and antenna requests,.
that raised county commis-
sioners' concerns.
A recent controversy about
"determinations" and "inter-
pretations" handed down by
zoning administrators who
have authorized building
permits for duplexes on non-


conforming lots has sensi-
tized the commissioners to
the delegation of authority.
"What are a tower adminis-
trator's duties?" commissioner
Jon Thaxton asked. "How does
a zoning administrator come
in?" County Attorney Steve
DeMarsh responded, "A tower
administrator couldn't make
zoning determinations."
The response didn't satisfy
Thaxton, who said, "I'm not
happy with the way this is
written and wouldn't support
it today. I'm relying on the
administration to make
changes."
Commissioner Shannon
Staub agreed.
"I don't like anything about
this tower administrator," she
said.
"If an administrative official
can waive height and separa-
tion rules with an interpreta-
tion," commissioner Nora
Patterson said, "then we might
as well not have an ordi-
nance."
DeMarsh responded that,
"Delegating authority to grant
waivers would be up to the
commission."
Todd Dary, the county
planner who will shepherd
tower ordinance changes
through the process, said,
"We're going to discuss the ins
and outs of these changes
with the planning commis-
sion, then take their recom-
mendations and concerns to
the county commission."
In an effort to placate
county commissioners, he
said the recommended
changes would not include a
tower administrator who is
authorized to unilaterally
grant height, separation and
location waivers without the
commission's approval.

School messaging service goes into effect


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Parents of Sarasota County
public schools can expect a
telephone call over the next day
or so from Superintendent
Gary Norris introducing the
district's new emergency mes-
saging service. The new system
is designed to interact with par-
ents on a moment's notice, say
school officials.
The district's messaging
system, part of a Connect Ed
grant with other Florida
school districts and other
states, can store up to six
numbers per set of parents.
Norris told school board
members at the Oct. 4 board
meeting the high-tech service
could, for example, send a dis-
trictwide emergency school
closure message, but would
most likely be used for out-
reach messages from local
principals' office, like remind-
ing parents about FCAT dates
and to make sure students get
enough rest and eat a healthy
breakfast
At this time the district
plans to send no more than
two messages per month,
using the new system.
Another feature *of the
emergency automated mes-
saging system will track stu-
dent attendance and notify
parents of kids who don't
show up for classes on a daily
basis. That feature will be
ready to go within a month or
so, Norris said.
In other news
The Sarasota County
School Board took the follow-
ing action at the Oct. 4 meet-
ing at The Landings:
Lottery funds: Approved
the fourth quarter report of lot-
tery proceeds and expendi-
tures. A total of $10.4 million
was received in lotteryfunds by
the board in fiscal 2004-05. The
largest portion of the funds
went to construction projects
for class-size reduction, in the
amount of $5.9 million. The
next largest amount was $2.3
million for school recognition
programs. These funds were
sent directly to allocated school
and spent according to the
School Advisory Council at
each school. An additional
$411,532 was spent by the SAC
at each school in the district
Finance: Approved a
group term life insurance deal
for calendar year 2006 with
Florida Combined Life Insur- .
ance Company. The cost for."
$50,000 life insurance re-
mains at $96 per year per
employee for the fifth consec-
utive .year. Accepted the
school's internal funds audit
for fiscal year 2004-05. This
audit is separate from the
audit of the tax-supported
funds of the school district.
Out-of-field assign-
ments: Approved 41 out-of-
field assignments for teachers
at charter and alternative
schools. These are teachers
who either do not have an
endorsement of certification
in the subject area being
taught or for a particular pop-
ulation of students being
taught. Very few are teaching
outside of their field, said a
district spokesperson. The
vast majority are educators
teaching gifted students or
students with special needs,
officials said. The assign-
ments are based solely on the
recommendations of charter
or alternative school princi-
pals and the heads of outside
agencies per state board rule
6a-1.0503. The school board
has no authority to hire or
retain teachers at the.identi-
fled sites. The list of classroom
educators teaching out-of-
field includes eight teachers
each at the Triad Alternative
program north and south
campus, 10 at the Student
Leadership Academy of Ven-
ice and four teachers at Island
Village school inVenice. Other
schools: Richard Milburn
Academy (three), Sarasota
Suncoast Academy' (one),
Sarasota Military Academy
(one), Sarasota School of Arts
& Sciences (two) Gulf Coast


Marine Institute South (two),
Infinity Middle School (one)
and Character House (one).
Regular schools also have


educators teaching out-of-
field, but are not included in
this periodic report prepared
for state auditors.
Capital five-year plan:
Postponed until the Oct. 18
meeting approval of the Sara-
sota County School District
five-year capital work plan.

PARADISE REALTY OF VENICE, INC.
A long-term Chamber member and well established real estate firm was lauded
for its professional sales and personal service in two separate unsolicited long distance
letters to the Education-Business Development Committee.
A Massachusetts couple praised Paradise Realty of Venice and agent Burt Deiana
for the first class service, start to finish and genuine attention to every detail personally
on a Venice home purchase.
The second letter was received from Portugal. Here are excerpts: "Our daughter
isa luder, Ia Rirnglirg Sici:ol of Art and Design in Sarasota and we decided it was
in our best interest to purchase a condominium for her. We were wary at first
conducting the deal from the other side of the Atlantic but found Paradise Reality and
agent Bernice Yerich. Ms. Yerich took my daughter to see several available properties.
The options were telephoned to me and we agreed on a perfect condo near the
campus the very first day! Ms. Yerich guided me though the entire process by way of
e-mails and phone calls. Our bid was presented to the seller, quickly accepted and
all documentation was handled by Paradise. The entire process was fast, painless.
andprofessional we were treated like family! In closing, Ms. Yerich made sure that
the utilities were in readiness and was on hand of the delivery of the furniture. I can
only presume that what people consider nowadays fo be above and beyond the call
of duty is in fact typical service of Paradise Realty of Venice."
Paradise Realty of Venice is located at 206 Harbor Drive South on the Island of
Venice.

Whether Sarasota County

DROPOUTS from page 1A
Sarasota County School Dis-
trict released its Referendum
Progress Report in April an-
nouncing the good news that
schools were spending dol-
lars as promised and doing
well.


The four-color brochure
touted last year's 2.9 percent
dropout rate, comparing it to
1999's 7.6 percent dropout
rate. The brochure implied
the vast improvement was
proof that referendum dollars
were positively affecting
dropout rates.


"The referendum funds
have bep strategically plac-
ed in aias where they will
have thegreatest impact on
student achievement The
results sphk for themselves,"
wrote Scpols Superinten-
dent Gar, Norris in the
brochure.


But the 7.6 percent figure is
an error. The source of the
incorrect information was the
Florida Department of Edu-
cation, although it won't pub-
licly admit the discrepancy.
The 1999 dropout rate was

GRAPHIC COURTESY OF THE CITY OF VENICE
It is too late to fulfill South Venice and Center Road annexation
plans laid out in the city's 1999 comprehensive plan, pictured
above by the solid black line, because Sarasota County has
already developed much of these areas, according to City
Manager Marty Black. The shaded areas have been annexed
into the city since 1999.


GOALS from page iA


was brought in, and nearly all
of it is in the Laurel and
Knights Trail area in North
Venice.
"I don't consider it a failure
because our annexation poli-
cy was not aggressive. ... We
were in a reacting mode," City
Manager Marty Black said.
"We never directed staff to go
out and obtain those annexa-
tions."
Don't expect the future
annexation map to be
changed much for the updat-
ed 2006 comprehensive plan,
according to the city manag-
er.
The northern boundary
may be pushed a bit further
north, and the southeast
quadrant starting at the East
Venice Avenue and Jacaranda
Boulevard intersection will be
eliminated. Other than that,
the map will remain un-
changed despite few plans for
annexation, according to
Black
The city manager hopes to
use the planned annexation


map as influence while nego-
tiating joint redevelopment
agreements with Sarasota
County staff along the U.S. 41
Bypass area.
These plans also have
played a role in county devel-
opment along East Venice
Avenue. Commissioners will
vote Oct. 11 to place a mora-
torium on all rezonings in this
area while architectural de-
sign standards similar to
Venice's are developed.
For people like city plan-
ning commissioner Jim My-
ers, the county cannot move
fast enough in creating some
type of architectural stan-
dard. Myers pointed to the
Enclaves of Venice as an ex-
ample of developments he
doesn't want to see popping
up alongVenice Avenue.
"Those are the worst look-
ing houses I've seen in 25
years," Myers said. "The
county doesn't seem to have
any architectural plan that
I'm aware of."

Let the Sun Classifieds work for you


this month.
"The 2005 Atlantic basin
hurricane season has already
been one of the most active
and is already the most de-
structive season on record,"
Gray's team announced. "We
project that October will con-
tinue the trend of above-aver-
age activity that we have wit-
nessed in the preceding four
months of the hurricane sea-
son."
For October, the team fore-
cast three named storms: two
hurricanes and one major
hurricane that would be a
Category 3 with winds ex-
ceeding 115 mph or
stronger.
The report released Mon-
day was written before Trop-
ical Storm Stan became the
18th named storm of the sea-
son. Stan became a hurricane
before striking the coast of
Mexico Tuesday.
As of Monday, there were
18 named storms, 10 hurri-
canes and five major hurri-
canes so far this season.
Full season
Gray, who regularly releas-
es forecasts throughout the
year, reported on Aug. 5 the
full season would have 20


named storms, including 10
hurricanes, six of them Cate-
gory 3 or above.
"There is nothing to sug-
gest the weather patterns will
change to stop this season
from reaching near-record
status," Gray said.
The busiest season on
record was 1933, when 21
tropical storms developed in
the Atlantic Basin. In 1995,
there were 19 named storms.
A normal season brings 10
named storms, including six
hurricanes and two major
storms.
Gray and his team place
the blame for the increased
hurricane activity on increas-
ed Atlantic sea surface tem-
peratures, lowwind shear and
moisture in the middle at-
mosphere.
The pattern of increased
acitMty is, part of a multi-
decade pattern that began in
1995 and is expected to last
for another 15-30 years.
A tropical wave swirling
east of the Bahamas was
expected to become a named
storm by Wednesday, Nation-
al Hurricane Center meteo-
rologists reported Monday.
The next name on the hurri-
cane center's list is Tammy.

fortunate, Gray stated.

Sarasota County Although most homes
for sale are resales, one out of four
homebuyers purchases a new home. Which is
better: Existing or new? The right answer of
course, is up to you. Both resales and new
homes offer advantages. Existing homes are
less expensive on average, and are generally
close to, and enjoy the warmth and
surroundings of established neighborhoods
often with mature landscaping.
New homes, on the other hand, offer
innovative use of.space, greater energy
efficiency and choices of options and
upgrades. Everything is new and modem.

WEDNESDAY. OCT. 5,2005


DROPOUTS from page 8A
later corrected, but DOE has
not fixed the error to date on
its Web site. The 1998-99
dropout rate is actually 3.6
percent, not 7.6 percent,
according to a SCOPE (Sara-
sota County Openly Plans for
Excellence) publication re-
leased in 2002.
"The state refused to
change it," Weiss confirmed
Monday. "We do have a letter
from the department ac-
knowledging the error, but
they refuse to acknowledge it
publicly."
Publishing the 7.6 percent
figure puts the district be-
tween a rock and a hard place.
Use of the figure appears to
inflate its success. Using a fig-
ure different from the official-
ly sanctioned dropout rate
also doesn't fly.
"We made a determination
we were going to have more
people not believing us if we
used a dropout figure differ-
ent from the department's -
official dropout rate, so we
used it," Weiss said. "We didn't
want people to call us a liar."
Skeptical
While statistically the im-
provement from 3.6 percent
to 2.9 percent is significant for
the district and its efforts to
keep kids in school, the error
confirmed for an already
skeptical Kunerth its numbers
cannot be trusted.
Kunerth claims Sarasota
County has an alarming 39
percent dropout rate. As far as
he is concerned, the kids who
transfer out of the district to
other public school districts
or private school or to home
school all excluded from
official dropout statistics by
the state reflect the dis-
trict's success (or lack of it) in
keeping high schoolers in
area schools.
Kunerth also doesn't like
the districtusing a one-year
dropout statistic.
"If someone wants to com-
pare 1,600 students (Kunerth's
estimate of dropouts over
four years) in a public school
district of 41,000 in 2004 and
say the dropout rate is 3 per-
cent or 4 percent that is total-
ly misleading. The compari-
son should be ith the high
school populadon of 14-, 15-,
16- and 17-year-old kids,"
Kunerth.said.
And Kune-th doesn't give
credence to criticism that his
calculations doesn't ade-
quately take into account stu-
dent mobility.
"-More .kids have been
transferring into Sarasota
high schools than dropping
from the rolls. Anywhere from
a net gain between 10 percent
and 20 percent each of four
years. rTherefore, it is not'
important to the measute-i
ment where the 'lost' kids
went. They were replaced
with hew arrivals and more
over the four years of high
school.
"If- e:add the percentage
of increase of total high
school enrollment to the
ninth-grade cohort over' four
years from 2001 to 2004, we
find that 39 percent of
Sarasota kids failed to achieve
the 12th grade. It's a very easy
measurement and (beyond
fudging either at the'level of
individual high schools or the
district," Kunerth said.
Not a perfect world
Norris says Kunerth's fig-
ures overstate the problem
and defy logic. He provided a
written response on Sept. 18
countering Kunerth's data
and explaining the district's
plans to reduce the county's
dropout rate. /
"A cumulative dropout rate
for each of the last four years,
assuming that our 2004-05
dropout rate? will remain the
same as 2003-04, is 12.3 per-
cent," Norris said. "This is far
below Mr. Kunerth's reported
39 percent."
"Mr. Kunerth's calculations


only deal with a perfect world
scenario in which every child
entering ninth grade in, a
given year would enter 12th
grade together and graduate
at the end of four years," Nor-
ris said. "Unfortunately, the:

!'


reality of the situation is quite
different. There will always be
a number of students who
follow this path, but there will
also be some who are
retained in ninth grade
because of not meeting all the
credit requirements."
"Our retention rate is
approximately 20 percent in
ninth grade (which is about
the state average, according
to a 2001 survey). Some of
those students catch up to
their original peer group
through summer school,


night school or other credit
retrieval programs. So, even
though they may have repeat-
ed ninth grade, by January
they may have made up the
necessary credits to become
sophomores. Other retained
students may take five years
to graduate," Norris said.
Another reason Kunerth's
calculations are distorted,
said Norris, is because he uses
an enrollment count from
only one survey period,
which is a single week in the
fall.

enrolled at any time during
the school year. This is signifi-
cant because of the transient
nature of Sarasota County
and the continual movement
of students into and out of
our public schools through-
out the school year," Norris
said.

Benfield wins

City Golf

in wind storm

BY MICHAEL LAMOND
CORRESPONDENT

There's something about
Venice in October. Some kind
of cosmic convergence or
maybe a shift in the planet's
magnetic field, but something
freaky happens every year at
tournament time. The wind
starts to blow. I don't mean
that there's a pleasant breeze,
I mean wind that should be
rated on the Safford-Simpson
scale.
So it was this year. Shane
Benfield shot a two under 142
to' take the title and Lee
Bennett, last year's champ,
finished second at 144 even
par. Jim Stone shot 72-73 for a
third place finish.
While there was a pretty
good wind on Saturday, Sun-
day's wind was estimated, by
me, to be about 20-25 sus-
.tained with gusts to 3,000
mph. It showed as only 14
players& -broke 80 in final
round play. --.
There were eight flights
this year and as usual, all flight
winners received a new bag,
courtesy ofVenice Golf Center.
Man, I needed a new bag, too.
In the first flight, John
Gering shot an impressive 73
on Sunday to nip Tony Pagan,
who finished one shot back.
The second flight was won by
some guy from Port Charlotte
named Larry Potalivo (157).
He was followed by Tim
Morrissey at 158. The third
flightwas won by Bob Robson,
who definitely needed a new
bag. He's the only guy I know
who still has a vinyl bag. Mr.
Robson shot a 162 and was
one shot up on Eli Nogiec and
Neil Leeson at 163.
In the fourth flight, Marc
Wilcox (163) shot 76 on
Sunday to win by two strokes
over Dave Soucie (165). The
fifth flight was won by a player
I'm sure a lot of old timers
remember Jim Bennett
(172), brother of the former
champ, came off the couch
after a several year layoff to
win his flight by five shots.
Josh Ehrlich and Brian Doyle
tied for second at 177.
The sixth flight was won by
Ken Smith at 177, second
place went to Michael Bethlen
(182) five shots back. The sev-
enth flight was won by Butch
McMillen at 185 and second
went to Scott Penxa at 186.


AAU Sharks split
The Suncoast Sharks 14-
and-under AAU baseball
team split a doubleheader in
Seminole.
In the first game, the Sharks
defeated the hosts, 11-3. The
winning pitcher was Jonathan
Hartzell, who allowed three
runs over seven innings. The
leading hitter for Sharks was
Will Hayes, who was 3-for-4.
Defensively, Matthew Brown
threw out a runner at the plate
from center field.
In the second game,
Seminole edged the Sharks,
8-6. The leading hitters for
Sharks were Ryan Bangert,
Jesse Ayres and Greg Bruni.
Defensive gems came from
Joey Ackernecht and Hayes
at shortstop.


AAU Scorpions sweep
The Suncoast Scorpions
10-and-under AAU baseball
team won two games Sunday
at the Englewood Sports
Complex.
The Scorps downed the
Estero Hawks, 4-1, behind
the pitching of, Chris Boldin
and Hunter Douglas. Douglas
and Joey Buncik were each
2-for-3. Ryan Conroy started a
double play in right field.
The the second game, the
Scorps clubbed the Charlotte
Thunder, 15-4, Buncik was


3-for-3 with three RBIs. He
was also the winning pitch-
er. Brendan Cutting was
2-for-3.


Venice girls shine at Don Ross match


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

On the scoreboard, the
Venice High girls golfers
finished second to Braden-
ton Academy in the 13th
annual Don Ross Memorial
played Monday at beautiful
Sara Bay Country Club in
Sarasota.
But deep inside, the Lady
Indians had to feel like they
scored a moral victory.
The players on Bradenton
Academy aren't from the area,
most not even from this
country. They are here only
because they are prodigies
being schooled at the Lead-
better Golf Academy.
Enough said about that.
For the record, Bradenton
Academy scored a 223.
Venice, which is unbeaten in
dual and tri-matches with a
record of 11-0, was at 251.


Riverview was third at 257.
A total of 10 schools partici-
pated.
Each school sent four
golfers to the tees. The top
three would go towards the
team score.
Low girl on the Lady In-
dian totem pole was fresh-
man Crystal Smith, who fired
a respectable 77. Although it
was five over par, breezy
conditions had scores a little
high across the board.
"The greens were tough,"
Smith said. "They're like up-
side down bowls. It was the
elevation of the greens, It
was hard to hit thin,"
Smith had one birdie on
the par five 17th hole. Her
score would have been even
lower if it weren't for a double
bogey on hole 9.
"I like my score," said
Smith, who had the fourth
lowest following three Bra-


denton Academy girls.
Medalist was Hannah Yun
with a 73.
Ninth grader Casey Ken-
nedy was next for Venice
with an 84. Junior Megan
Clipse came in with a 90,
while Casey Kennedy's older
sister Katie finishedwith a 98.
Clipse was happy with her
90.
"That's 22 strokes better
than last year," she said. "It
rained last year. Plus, my
game is much better."
The Venice girls have two
outings before the district
tournament next Monday at
Heritage Oaks.
On Wednesday, there's a
tri-match at the Bobby Jones
course in Sarasota. The Lady
Indians will play against
Sarasota and Riverview.
On Thursday, the girls will
play a practice round at
Heritage Oaks.

The Venice High boys
golfers finished in the middle
of the pack at Monday's 13th
annual Don Ross Memorial
Tournament held at Sara Bay
Country Club.
The 327 score put the
Indians eighth out of 16
schools competing at the


course located in north
county.
"Am I happy?" asked In-
dian coach Marty Tarala. "Not
really. But this is where we're
at. We have a young team.
We'll keep improving."
The Indians finished two
strokes behind Riverview,
three strokes behind Mana-
tee, eight strokes behind
Cardinal Mooney and 10


strokes behind Lakewood
Ranch. Bradenton Academy
was first at 292 while Sarasota
was second at 304.
Windy conditions helped
elevate scores.
"The way the course is
laid out, you either shot into
the wind or with it," said
Jeremy Hubai, who scored a
12 over 84. "It was worse
driving into the wind. It cut
my drive by 50 yards."
Venice's low scorer -
junior Chris Dobitsch bat-
tled for his 76. His score was
tied for 11th lowest'among 80
boys golfing Monday.
"It was tough out there,"
he said. "I was bummed out
about my tee shots, but I
putted very well."
Dobitsch started out the
back nine with four bogeys,
but he collected himself to
finish strong.

Venice High School's Megan Clipse tees off at the 13th Annual
Donald Ross Memorial Invitational on Monday.


"I made a birdie, then I
had a bogey, but I parred the
rest," he said.
SDobitsch had two birdies
on the day.
The boys scoring took the
top four out of five playing for
each school. Besides
Dobitsch and Hubai, Billy
Stevens shot an 83, Brian
Doyle was at 76 and Eric.
Dobitsch was up at 89.
Stevens and Eric Dobitsch ate
just freshmen.
The Venice team played in
another 18-hole tournament


Saturday. The Indians shot a
325, which put them eighth
in the 12-team field in 'the
Lakewood Ranch Invitation-.
al. Hubai was low man for
the Indians with a 76.
There are two remaining
dates this week before next-
Monday's district tournament
at Lake Venice Golf Club.
On Wednesday, the boys
are at the Naples Beach Club
where they will llay Naples
High and Gulf Coast High.
On Thursday they're at Bent
Tree taking on Sarasota. '

When Venice High foot-
ball coach Nick Coleman
talks about defensive end
Ray Popp, his eyes light up
accompanied by a smile.
"I wish I had 11 folks like
him," Coleman said. "He'll
jump on an alligator for
you."
Coleman meant that liter-
ally, too. Popp has wrestled
with gators to help make
him mean and tough.
Or as Jim Croce said in a
song, "Badder than old King
Kong, meaner than a junk-
yard dog."
Popp is not your typical
defensive end. He stands
6-feet high and weighs in at


VENICE HIGH


SCHOOL'S


195. Most DEs are much
bigger.
"I played outside line-
backer last year and they
moved me to end this year,"
said Popp, who was named
Venice's Defensive Player of
the Game against Manatee.
"I use my speed and strength.
I bench 290. I usually run
into pulling guards trying to
block me."
Popp wins the battle most
of the time.
Being a senior, Popp now
has- four regular season
games left. He wants to
make the most of them.
"We still have a chance to
win the district or at least
finish second," he said. "We'll
get back on track. I know we
can win. We just have to fin-


ish strong. I think this team
is better than last year."
Venice was 5-4 last year
but failed to make the play-
offs. The Indians are just 1-5
to date but can make the
playoffs with wins over Port
Charlotte and Lakewood
Ranch.
This week is Sarasota.
"It'd be nice to beat them
to get started in the right
direction," he said.

Other weekly award win-
ners announced at Tuesday's
Linebacker Club luncheon
included Kyle Hagen (Offen-

Estep (Special Teams Player

Coulombe (Practice Player of

HORMONES CAN AFFECT THE MOUTH
A concerned teen-ager talked to her mother about her most recent
upset. It seems that every time she had her period, her gums started to
bleed. Is this normal? Her mother made an appointment to have their
dentist review things. He was able'to reassure her about the health of
her gums. He explained the things that can happen in the mouth due to
chemical and hormonal changes.
Their dentist told them that there is occasionally swelling and pain in
the gums, particularly the. margins: That sometimes minor lesions on
the lips or gums will appear. There may even be some swelling in the
various salivary glands, and the possibility of prolonged bleeding if
dental surgery is done during this period.
He explained that these things are normal and should cause no reason
for alarm. They my occur frequently, seldom, or never, but are simply a
response to the wonderful and complex things that are happening in
the body.

Ieacon House's safety net for mentally ill

Beacon House's safety net for mentally ill


BY JOHN MCCAFFERTY
SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUN

Joking and laughing
through swirling charcoal-fla-
vored smoke, Jerry and Bob
ignored darkening rain clouds
and thunder overhead and
flipped hamburgers on Bea-
con House's backyard grille.
Jerry lives in North Port
and Bob in Englewood, but
both men spend much of their
time in Venice at its drop-in
center for the mentally ill.
"Since I started coming
here four months ago, I've
made a lot of new friends,"
said Jerry. "Before Beacon
House I watched TV all day."
Bob found a new home
here four years ago.
"Until then," he said, "read-
ing in the park was all I had
to do. This place is a blessing."
Nearby, in the kitchen,
Pamela told her story as she
sliced tomatoes for upcoming
lunch. Beacon House, with
help from All Faiths Food
Bank, supplies the food and
members prepare it for their
sit-down, family-type, hot
luncheon meals.
"Beacon House has been
a lifesaver for me," Pamela
said. "I wish I knew about it
sooner. I used to be with-
drawn and sleep 12 or more
hours a day. Now I'm involved
with lots of activities, teach
crafts, and even found a boy-
friend."
Laughter exploded as it
often does, because Beacon
House members enjoy having
fun.
"We're not matchmakers,"
giggled program director
Carolyn Eagen. "We don't
really promote that."
From 19 to 95
If you've never seen or
heard of Beacon House, that's
because it's not very visible
on the west side of U.S. 41, just
north of Shamrock. Blink
twice as you pass the Moody
Insurance building and you


may miss it. Beacon House is
behind that building in a
ranch-type structure that is
larger that it appears from
outside.
"We're a safety net for
people with mental illness,"
Eagen explained. Some mem-
bers also have serious phys-
ical illnesses. Beacon House
prevents homelessness and
isolation by building self-
esteem.
"We have about 200 mem-
bers ages 19 to 95. About 20-
25 come here. Monday
through Friday to socialize
and learn new skills that help
them mainstream back into
the community.We have some
evening and weekend activi-
ties and we're part of what I
call a continuum of care with
mental health services."
Beacon House has been in
Venice since 1992. It's one of
four drop-in centers run by
Mental Health Community
Centers Inc. Others are Pros-
pect House in Sarasota, the
organization's headquarters;
Selby House in Arcadia; and
the newest, North Port Drop-
In Center in North Port.
Their programs meet a crit-
ical need for nonmedical sup-
port services, activities and
programs. They are designed
to reduce and prevent the
need for hospitalization.
Out and about
Warm and outgoing,
"House Mom" Eagen greets
members and visitors alike
with a big smile and a friendly
hug. In the eight years she's
been in her job here, that's a
lot of smiles and hugs.
"Some people think we're
all fun and games and we are,"
Eagen said. "But ours are
therapeutic. We encourage
members to learn new skills
and share their skills with oth-
ers. They learn how to re-
place self-pity and negative
thoughts with constructive
activities that they enjoy."
"We have many activities


here," explained Angie, "bowl-
ing, plays, basketball, arts and
crafts, cookouts, horseshoes
and pizza and movies the
list goes on and on."
Eagen said they also take
trips to places like Mote
Marine, Myakka State Park,
Oscar Scherer State Park and
recently to St. Petersburg to
see a Major League Baseball
game.
Beacon House has its own
15-seat van, thanks to a grant
from Gulf Coast Community
Foundation ofVenice.
"One member drives and
so do I," Eagen said. "During
the Christmas season we tour
the area to enjoy the holiday
lights."
Friends
Beacon House has grown
with the area's population -
about 20 percent a year for the
past three years. Eagen said
funding is lagging behind that
pace. Funding comes from
Sarasota County Grants-in-
Aid, the Florida Department
of Children and Family
Services, the United Way and
through donations by many
other local organizations and
individuals.
Eagen said a major sup-
porter is Village On The Isle,
which hosts its Celebrity
Waiters Dinner, a fundraiser.
The next one will be March 11.
She also praised Womens
Sertoma Club of Venice, Fred
Hind Interiors, Hudson's
Furniture and Plantation
Community Foundation for
their support. The latter re-
cently donated four new
computers.
In addition to computer
training, members share their
skills in activities such as art,
music poetry, gardening,
crafts, woodworking, sewing,
knitting, cooking and other
programs.
Outside events
Eagen is sensitive to the
potential deleterious effect of


Beacon House's clients find the facility a safe haven in a world that often turns its back on them.


outside events on members'
thinking. She saw evidence
of that last year during
Florida's hurricanes but said
Hurricane Katrina hasn't
been as big a problem for
members "because it's further
away."
During Sept. 11, Eagen
walked in between the time
the first and second World
Trade Center towers were hit.
"Everyone was in the living
room watching TV" she said.
"I turned it off and we went
to Selby Gardens where they
didn't see a TV By the time we
came back we knew what had
happened. If we had stayed
and watched TV this would
have been a bigger thing per-
sonally for them to handle."
Looking for speakers
Members produce their
own bimonthly newsletter,
"The Beacon." .It contains a
two-month daily calendar of
events. Mental health profes-
sionals and others volunteer
to give talks and the calendar
tells members who's coming
and when.
October's speakers include


psychologist Dr. Michael
Baer; Mark Barclay of Bar-
clay's Pharmacy in Venice;
NAMI's Barry Jeffrey; and
Coastal Behavioral's case
manager, Dr. Dan Davis.
"Social Security is impor-
tant to us," Eagen said. "Every
two months Paul Green of
the Social Security office in
Sarasota gives members an
update and answers their
questions "
Eagen is looking for more
volunteer speakers for future
programs.
"We're especially interest-
ed in retired therapists, coun-
selors and people who have
had interesting occupations
or can teach craft skills."
A lot in common
Before we left, Mark, who
suffers bipolar illness, walked
us through the rain to show
off his meticulously main-
tained garden. It contains a
variety of plants and vegeta-
bles, including tomatoes,
cucumbers, papaya, aloe


plants and nutmeg all
started from seed, he said
proudly.
SA Venice East resident,
Mark said he was a carpenter
for 25 years before coming
'to Beacon House three years
ago.
"This place has given me a
nice place to talk to other
people with disabilities and
to share our thoughts, feel-
ings and problems. Some
have the same problem as
you and can give you insight
into how they handle it and I
can share what I know with
them."
As I left Beacon House, I
noticed a NAMI sign in one of
its windows. It asks, what do
Abraham Lincoln, Winston
Churchill and some of your
friends have in common?
Answer: depressive illness.
Yes, lots of famous and
nonfamous people have suf-
fered from mental illness.
Today, fortunately, there's a
place in Venice for many of
them called Beacon House.

Red tide cause debated by locals, scientists alike


Longtime locals don't know what the problem is,


but they know things.


BY GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER

Wayne Genthner, captain
of Wolfmouth charters on
Longboat Key, cruised out to
one of his usual fishing
grounds early last August
hoping to hook some bait fish
when he noticed something
was missing from the sea-
scape.
The seabirds that normally
would be diving for small fish
near the surface were few and
far between.
Genthner soon discovered
the surface waters were also
devoid of bait fish. He then
found that the fish below
weren't biting. Not even a nib-
ble.
An avid scuba diver, Gen-
thner donned his dive gear
and hopped overboard for a
look.
"What I saw down there
was so stark," he said. "I mean
there was nothing alive.
Everything was reduced to
remains. No worms, no fish,
no nothing.
"Even the conch and the
big sponges were dead. It
killed all the clams. Even the
plants were dead. Hydrogen
sulfide gas was the only thing
left'down there."

Thermocline
Genthner had discovered
what scientists soon con-
firmed was a 2,200-square-
mile "dead zone" that stretch-


ed from Port Richey to Sara-
sota and extended more than
20 miles offshore. .
The dead zone was caused
when a "thermocline," which
is a layer of warmer water that
pools on top of a layer of cool-
er water, combined with a red
tide bloom, according to Jere-
my Lake, spokesman for the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Re-
search Institute in St. Peters-
burg.
Warmer water doesn't hold
as much oxygen as cooler
water. The lack of oxygen,
combined with the neurotox-
in found in red tide, turned
the sea into a lethal environ-
ment, Lake said.
For Genthner and other
Southwest Florida fishermen,
the incident represents the
latest indicator that red tide is
increasing due to human im-
pacts.
"When I was growing up,
when you said 'red tide,' we
always thought 'October,' "
said Capt. Ralph Allen, owner
of the King Fisher cruise fleet
in Punta Gorda. "We also
used to say, 'You never see red
tide in Charlotte Harbor.'"
Local fishermen aren't say-
ing that anymore, he said,
noting that red tides now can.
last year-round and red tides
have recently caused fish kills
even within the freshwater-
rich Charlotte Harbor estuary.
"In the last 10 years, and
the last five years- in particu-
lar, we've had continuous red


tide," said Frank Hommema,
owner of Fishin' Frank's Bait &
Tackle in Charlotte Harbor. "It
just seems like it doesn't go
away."
Hommema suspects pol-
lution from everything from
the discharge of more than 1
billion gallons of wastewater
from the Piney Point phos-
phate chemical plant in.2003
to "rich people buying homes
all along the gulf."
The homeowners expect
to have their lawns to look
beautiful, so they use exces-
sive amounts of fertilizer,
Hommema said. '

Times 10 ... maybe
At least one scientist has
also concluded that pollution'
is causing an increase in red
tide. Dr. Larry Brand, a ma-
rine biology professor from
the University of Miami, re-
viewed the state's archive of
data on red tide dating back
50 years.
Brand concluded red tide
concentrations are now
about 10 times higher than
they were in the 1950s and
1960s.
But other marine scientists
at both the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Research Institute
and Mote Marine Laboratory
say the data are too sparse
and inconsistent to draw any
conclusions.
"The database that Dr.
Larry Brand has evaluated is
very large, very complex and
has a lot of biases in it," said
Gary Kirkpatrick, manager of
phytoplankton research at
Mote. "As a hypothesis,


(blaming pollution) is fine.
But we don't feel we're in a
position to say there's proof."
Dr. Cynthia Heil, senior
scientist for the state institute,
said she has reviewed the
database. No trends seem to
"pop out," she said.
For example, she pointed
out that another. severe red
tide bloom lasted 18 months
back in 1946-47.
She also noted that pollu-
tion levels, particularly for
phosphorus, an ingredient in
laundry detergent until the
1970s, rose to extremely high
levels in the 1960s, but
declined, after that due to
increasing environmental
regulations.
"From the database, it's
clear that you can't make any.
conclusions," she said.

Getting worse
Dr. Rich Pierce, director of
ecotoxicology for Mote, also
feels the data are insufficient.
But the concern underscores
the need for more research,
he said.
Pierce and other Mote sci-
entists are currently working
with the National Oceanic
Atmospheric Administration
and other agencies to develop
a network of red tide moni-
toring-stations to answer such
questions.
"The FWRI has continued
to make it sound like things.
are not getting worse," Brand
said. "I get their own data and
it looks pretty clear to me it is
getting worse."
Brand concluded that, al-
though there were some big


blooms in the 1970s, the aver-
age concentration of red tide
now is about 10 times higher
than they were.
The blooms extend farther
offshore.. And the average
concentration along the
shoreline is also now "much
higher," he said.
Also, the blooms of. the
past typically occurred in the
fall. But over the past decade
they've routinely extended
into winter and summer
months, he said.
That threatens more crea-
tures as they migrate through
inshore waters creatures
that previously ,wouldn't have
had any contact with red tide.
For example, he cited that
in the mid-1990s about 150
manatee deaths were report-:
ed amid a springtime red tide
bloom.
Last August, more than 100
sea turtle deaths were report-
ed near the dead zone. The
turtles likely encountered red'
tide as they came ashore to
lay eggs, Brand said.
If red tide is extending
longer into summer months,
that also means more dead
zones because that's when
thermbclines occur, he warn-
ed.
"Why should I believe it's
not going to happen again
nextyear?" he.asked.

Like a hurricane
Red tide naturally exists in
low levels in the gulf. Blooms
typically start 20 miles or
more offshore far from
sources of pollution.
Brand, however, compared


red tide to hurricanes. Scien-
tists don't know precisely'
what triggers hurricanes to
form, but they do know that
hot water fuels them.
"If you throw more nutri-
ents in the gulf, they'll get
going," he said. "I think that's
what explains it.,
Sources of pollution in-
clude both agricultural and
residential runoff. Those im-
pacts are coupled with the
loss, of wetlands that once
served as "nutrient sinks" that
absorbed the pollution,
Brand said.
Dr. Tom Fraser, a Charlotte
Harbor-based marine biolo-
gist, remains unconvinced.
He cautioned that more
red tide studies may have
been conducted during fall
months because of the per-
ception that fall is the time
when the blooms are most
likely to occur. That, in turn,
could have perpetuated the
perception that more blooms
used to occur in the fall.
Also, more residents live in
coastal communities now, so
there are more observers to
report red tide. he said.
:Fraser personally recalls at
least two severe red tide out-
breaks that occurred decades
ago. One, in 1957, affected 35
miles of coast. The tide killed
grouper and manatees, he
said.
Also, in the early 1980s, red
tide was suspected in the
deaths of some 30 manatees,
he said.
"I'm not at all satisfied that
anyone's got the corner on
what causes it," he said.,'

OUR VIEW




Pluses and minuses of FCAT bonuses


Money plays a lot of roles in our lives. The
love of it is said to be the root of all evil
It sometimes pays to follow the money.
It's a motivator. And it can be a reward.
Recently, the rich learned by how much
they'll become richer. We're not talking about
people getting the money. We're talking
about public schools.
The schools that are getting the best
-results that is, are being graded the highest
- get the most money from the state's A+
program. Those schools that aren't doing well
(and might do better with a financial injec-
tion) won't be getting any money.
We like it when our area's schools grade
out at the top of the heap. But we have reser-
vations about giving the best the money,


while not helping those schools that proba-
bly need it most.
We also question who will decide how the
money is spent. And we are concerned that
too many schools are teaching test-taking
rather than the tools the students need to
succeed in life.
The grades are handed out based on the
average of the scores recorded by the stu-
dents in grades three through 11 who took
the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test.
The money is passed out on comparisons
between this year and last: Get an 'A" or
improve by one grade and the school is
financially rewarded.
The FCAT test measures student achieve-
ment in mathematics, reading, science and


writing, important subjects all. The 'A" or
improved schools receive $100 for each full-
time student in the year the tests were taken.
The rewards can be big tens, even hun-
dreds of thousands of dollars. Sarasota
County schools collectively received about
$1.9 million, while schools in Charlotte split
nearly $1.4 million.
School advisory committees decide how
to disburse the money. The SACs, composed
of faculty and staff, often use it as bonuses for
school personnel.
That's one of our concerns: Are there ade-
quate guidelines to ensure some level of fair-
ness and uniformity in the way that money is
spent? We've heard stories of principals who
supposedly have used the money as a "slush


fund," if you will, to pay for programs not
otherwise funded, over the protests of staff
and the SAC.
But the bigger worries are ones that al-
ways rear their heads when the value of stan-
dardized tests is debated: Are we teaching
our children to think or just to take tests? Are
other subjects getting short shrift in the con-
centration on mathematics, reading, science
and writing? Is it wise to deny extra funding
to schools whose shortcomings might be due
in part to a lack of funding?
Still, that doesn't take away our pride for the
schools that are doing well. Congratulations to
the principals, teachers and students.
Let's keep thinking about those question,
though.

JIM CLINCH
GUEST COLUMNIST


Venice needs a growth
strategy that welcomes new-
comers while maintaining the
charm and appeal of the
downtown, the beaches and
our neighborhoods. In certain
parts of the city a commercial
mixed-use zoning designa-
ion that allows for'the con-
sideration of ;bhiJdigs' niore';i
than 35'feet tall is a logical'
part of such a strategy.
SThis zoning would alloyv
for flexibility, which is some-
thing reasonable people
understand and support. The
only disagreement dis-
missing for the moment the
"zero growth" fringe element
- involves building height.
How tall is too tall? Should
there be a maximum height
limit applied everywhere?
We ought to be able to
agree on one thing: There are
parts of Venice where tall-
buildings don't belong.
One area was the western
end' of West Venice Avenue,
and city council appropriately
applied an overlay district
there to limit building height.
The same should be done
with the main downtown
business district.
Also, height limits should
apply along -the beaches,
where high-rise or mid-rise
construction is aesthetically
unappealing and downright
dangerous in hurricanes.
Other areas of the city,
however, should be open to
new development with higher
buildings. This would include
the proposed Waterfront pro-
ject and U.S. 41 Business.
Some people, in this very
newspaper, have. claimed
they represent "the will of the
people" that nothing more
than 35 feet should be built
anywhere for any reason. This
claim is ludicrous. No individ-
ual or or anization has a
monopoly on expressing "the
will of the people" ofVenice.
To support the bogus claim
that everybody agrees with
them, this anti-height, anti-
growth contingent cites the
Envision Venice results. Let's
get real: Envision Venice was


"Let's get real:
Envision Venice was

flawed exercise and at
worst a large waste of

at best a seriously flawed ex-
ercise and at worst a large
waste of time.
The organizers restricted
input,to thdse in.attendance.
If you didn't go to the ineet-
ings, your voice was'not
heard. As'a result, business
owners, working people or
any average Venetian with a
less-than-zealous interest in
local affairs found something
-better. to. do and .skipped,
these boring'meetings. ;
The findings, not surpris-
ingly, largely reflected the

tents for whom complaining
at meetings is their main, per-
haps,.ony, hobby
Rather than looking at the
results of a flawed process,
how about looking to the vot-
ers? If the "anti-whatevers"
represent such a strong.
majority, where are their can-
didates? Why :haven't their
legions of supporters swept
one of their charismatic
spokespersons into office by
now?; i ,( ~q" \ ;.. ..
The truth is that the people
ofVenice- the real people of
Venice, not this vocal minori-
ty have elected reasonable
individuals who understand
the need for flexibility, not:
backward-looking absolut-
ists.
If you believe in the demo-
cratic process and represen-
tative government, doesn't
this demonstrate th iiltimate
"will of the people?", ,
Unforfunately, there is little
chance the anti-growth, anti-
height minority will cease
claiming that everyone in
Veinice agrees with them.
Maybe they believe it. Or,
maybe they believe the old
maxim that if you repeat a lie
often enough pretty soon
people will think it's the truth.
Hey, it worked for the
Bolsheviks.

Louisiana's recovery musn't harm others


Editor r:
The EPA says it knows how bad the pollution is in New
Orleans, but where else are they going to put it? So they just
Keep on pumping and dumping.
They don't know what this pollution will do to Lake
Pontchartraip. They do know that Lake Pontchartrain is home
to many manatees.
What.happened to the Endangered Species Act? Will boat
docks kill more manatees than pollution? What about all the
shore life, birds and aquatic critters?
Lake Pontchartrain is tidal; that is, the tide comes and goes,
flushing the pollution out and into the Mississippi River. What
about the effects of all this pollution on the river?
I am worried that the industrial waste is far worse than the
organic waste. The heavy metals, lead, mercury and God-only-
knows what else are very well documented to cause cancers in
humans and critters.
This mishmash of pollutants will be in the gulf and on our
beaches in a matter of a few weeks. Do you want your children
and grandchildren to be able to visit here with you and enjoy
what we do every day? Then think about what New Orleans is
doing to us.
I know this may sound selfish, but hurting us will not help
New Orleans. The New Orleans as the world knows it is dead.
Let's tell them to stop what they are doing and think of a bet-
ter way. Six months planning won't make any difference to New
Orleans. But six months might make a big difference to the rest
of the downstream world.

Best to keep Abu Ghraib

Editor:
What is missing from the

The release of further Abu

purpose other than aiding

Bush screwed up. The Sen-

LET 'EM HAVE IT! WHO IS GOING TO WIN THE WORLD

SERIES? CALL US AT 207-1111.

Maybe we should have closed the door


The facts. I'd like to comment on a couple of issues. One, the
people who said Mr. Miller should get out of town should leave
themselves. I don't know of anyone who has contributed more
to the Venice community than Mike Miller. People should have
all the facts before they let them have it. Maybe that's why they
hide behind the Let'em Have It column, so they don't have to
give their name. Second of all, why do all the newcomers in the
Venice area, here less than 10 years, think that they have a right
to stop progress? It's going to happen and the best thing that we
can do is stand behind the people that we've elected. Maybe we
should have locked the door 10 years ago and we wouldn't have
to deal with all those Northern ideas.


Fix the levee. First, I want
to say that my heart goes out
to everyone who's suffered
unbelievable mental, and
physically because of Katrina.
I don't believe that I could
have the strength to endure
what they did. This also ap-
plies to all the rescuers and
volunteers. I have watched
this devastation on every
news channel, yet I still have
not heard anything about cor-
recting the problem that
caused this nightmare, nam-
ed the levees. After the hurri-
cane in 1969, the mayor and
governor of New Orleans, and
the government of the United
States should have addressed
this problem and fixed it. New
Orleans was and is sitting on a
time bomb. If the levees didn't
break, I believe the damage
would have been one-third of
what happened. Now they
talk about rebuilding the city.
The levee should come first.
Every time we have a hurri-
cane, New Orleans and sur-
rounding areas are playing
Russian roulette. It's only a
question of when.
Prestigious? I'd like to
make a comment about
council member John Moore.
Mr. Moore has made a state-
ment several different times
about how prestigious it is to
have a bike race in the city of
Venice. Well, I'm wondering
how prestigious it is to not
give the city police officers a
raise. In over a year they've
been fighting their contract
and no one on that council
has taken it upon themselves
to step forward and give some
type of raise. Is that presti-
gious like a sporting event?
Not chief. You need to
make a big correction in your
letters to your editor, letters
from readers. There's a letter
from Michael F. Komisarz

lice of Venice Police Depart-
ment is very incorrect. That
needs to be corrected. He
retired as a captain only.
Get off height. I just want-
ed to comment on the 58-unit
condominium that they want
to build at the Fisherman's
Wharf. I think it would be a
wonderful idea. I think it's
beautiful and would enhance
Venice and I wish all these
people would get off this
height thing. It's sickening
and I'm sick of hearing it. And
also, I just wanted to say for
my husband that we're so
thrilled that we hear about a
new men's shop coming in on
the avenue. I think this will be
an asset for shopping down-
town and I hope everybody
will go and shop and buy.
The end. I read and viewed
the article about the proposed
Waterford complex. If the
powers that be let this high-
rise be constructed, it is only
the beginning as they will be
forced to allow many more.
This will be the beginning of
the end ofVenice as we know
it. We will be just another


cluster of high-rise, high-
price condos, with all the
problems of traffic, popula-
tion and the troubles that
accompany it. But think of all
the tax money that council
will get to spend.
Left behind. Evacuations
during hurricanes. I surmise
that one of the reasons people
choose not to evacuate their
homes is because of their
pets. They do not want to
leave their pets behind. Until
we can make accommoda-
tions for the pets in hurricane
centers, we are going to con-
tinue to see these problems. I
really hope that we can begin
to address this issue because
it is important. People love
their animals and they don't
want to leave them behind.
A crook. It is an outrage
about Badcock to put that
many homes in that area and
waste. I mean, Kitson'sI a
friend of Jeb Bush's. It's just a
shame. Someone should do
some reporting on that, to put
that many homes down there.
No reduced fees. I'm calling
about part-time residents
being charged reduced fees for
city services. I think that's a nice
thought, but I think not. In our
condo building, whenever the
residents aren't here, their fam-
ily and friends or somebody is
back and forth here it's like a
small hotel. And also, they rent
them out for a couple months
at a time, so they're still using
the services. Why should they
have a reduced fee? I don't
understand.

BY PETER LIZON
GUEST COLUMNIST

I feel an urgency to address
the deficiencies of master
planning, development and
building design and con-
struction in our community.
Traffic congestion along
the Gulf Coast is getting
worse every year because the
population is growing expo-
nentially. We allow more
housing construction and we
only have two north-south
roads to use for travel.
If a major disaster would
hit the West Coast of Florida,
we certainly would not be
able to evacuate to safety.
Utilities would be lost and
there would be no medical
services, fire protection or
food. Meteorologists say that
in the next 10 years we need
to anticipate more destruc-
tive hurricanes coming than
anytime before.
Katrina showed that what
was not destroyed by wind
was destroyed by flood. The
loss of property is astronomi-
cal. Obviously, the structures
were not designed and built
with such forces in mind.
We do not see differences
in buildings built in Florida
from those built elsewhere in
the United States, yet the cli-
mate here is very different
from the rest of the country.
Buildings do not take ad-


vantage of the abundant sun-
shine and sea breezes. They
are energy inefficient.
We promote the imported
Northern Italian Renaissance
and Mediterranean "styles,"
which are foreign to humid
and flat Florida. Abroad, the
topography is hilly and they
have.four seasons, with snow
and freezes in winters. Gen-
erally they. do not need air
conditioning because of low
humidity.
For safety reasons, we need
to put a moratorium on all
construction of housing until
we build at least one more
north-south route for vehicu-
lar transit so people of the
Gulf Coast would be able to
safely evacuate to the north in
a case of emergency.
We need to revive the exist-
ing railroad beds for light rail
transportation to supplement
routes for evacuation. A rail-
way would help to relieve
road congestion and provide
safe transit for the elderly
Florida population.
Power lines, telephone,
cable and other utilities need
to be put in underground
channels for protection and
maintenance. (John Nolen
did not want wires on poles
for aesthetic reasons; now we
know we do not want them
for safety reasons, too.)
For citizen safety and wel-
fare, we need to design and


build buildings responsive to
tropical climate and weather,
topography, vegetation, ener-
gy needs and lifestyle. Sun,
wind and sea need to be em-
ployed in energy-conscious
design and construction.
The beaches with dunes
and vegetation provide pro-
tection of the coast. They
must not be built on, because
buildings work against the
natural sea and land relation-
ship. It is silly and wasteful to
renourish beaches after the
last hurricane season. The sea
Swill take the sand back again.
(John Nolen wanted the
beaches to be accessible to all
as open land with public
functions.)
High-rise building is unsafe.
It is against the flat topography'
subject to destructive high
winds and dangerous for high-
density population in disaster
evacuation.
The fact we are not doing
things right today, and are not
prepared for tomorrow, needs
to be addressed not only by
the city of Venice and by the
Sarasota County but by the
Florida government and
FEMA alike.
The situation is serious
and we need to act now.

hitectural Review Board.

It's time to scale
down war efforts


Editor:
In the aftermath of the hur-
ricane disasters, nowis the per-
fect time for this country's lead-
ers to begin to stale down the
war in Iraq and Afghanistan.
With the enormous cost in
American lives and dollars tak-
ing a daily toll on every citizen,
our government could be
applauded for this act of a show
of peace. With so many of our
National Guardsmen involved
with these conflicts, their recall
would certainly aid in the relief
efforts here at home.


The tragic mistake would
be to continue the needless
show of force in an unjust
war, and to continue to bur-
den the poor and middle
class Americans with unsus-
tainable budget deficits from
the war, hurricane relief costs,
loss of their homes and hope
for a prosperous and happy
future in our nation, under
God, indivisible, with liberty
and justice for all.

There is more to self-pro-
tection than the marshal arts.
Kung fu and karate techniques
may prove helpful against a
mugger but are worthless
against one of the most dan-,
gerous adversaries to be found
in this area the sun.
"When you step outside,
your worst enemy is the sun,"
said Jane Iredale Mineral
Cosmetics sales consultant Jill
Ann Smith.
Iredale was speaking to a
group of teenagers recently in
the salon at the Ritz-Carlton
Sarasota. Included in the
group was: Taryn' Taylor of
Venice. The teens were gath-
ered for a two-hour program
during which they would
learn about make-up applica-
tion, how to select make-up
products to enhance their
complexions, cover problem
areas such as those resulting
from acne and prevent skin
,damage from sun exposure.,
"You need to read the ingre-
dients on ,make-up labels,

Smith said. "You need to see
how many fillers are in your
make-up. Talc is a carcinogen.
They took it off the market in
baby care products but not
from make-up. Consider the
patches used nowadays to dis-
pense medicine. Everything
that goes on the skin is ab-
sorbed into the blood stream."
Even such things as yellow
dye No. 7, which has been
approved by the Food and
Drug Administration, may not
be good for you.
While looking for ingredi-
ents that might be bad for you,
Smith said it was also impor-
tant to look for those ingredi-
ents that are beneficial.
"The Internet is a good
source of information," 'she
said. "Titanium dioxide and
zinc oxide are two of the best;
sun blocks. and they are both
all natural. Zinc oxide also is
an anti-microbial product that
helps with acne."
.Salicylic acid, peroxide and
glycolic acid (for exfoliation)
are other desirable make-up
ingredients. Salicylic acid is
found in lamb, cauliflower.
rye, oats, pork and avocado.-
A person's skin condition is
dependent on several things:
genetics, diet, lifestyle and sun
exposure.
During the evening pro-


gram all these things were
addressed, each teen wias
made up and advised about
skin cleansing and the best
colors to use for foundation.
blush and eyes.
By the end of the evening,
every teen had been made up
Sand gifted with a goody bag of
products and presents. They
also enjoyed finger.sandwich-
es and giant Ritz-Carlton
cookies plus a healthy assort-
ment of beverages including
fruit juices.
Taryn Taylor of Venice was
selected by Smith to partici-
pate in a make-up demonstra-
tion. Afterward, every teen in
the audience was treated to a
personalized make-up con-
sultation.
Cleanse, protect and treat
Skin, the body's largest
organ, should be cleaned, pro-
tected and treated to stay in
top condition:
Those with acne-prone
skin were advised to use a skin
wash that includes salicylic
acid to control oil production,
benzoyl peroxide to treat pim-
ples and glycolic acid to rid
skin of dead skin cells. Those
with dry or sensitive skin were
advised to use non-irritating
cleansers containing soothing
elements such as aloe vera
and hydrating ingredients.
Skin should be cleansed, not
stripped.
Use a sunscreen for protec-
tion. Smith recommended the
use of a moisturizer \with an
SPF or at least 15 or the use of
a mineral-based make-up
such as Iredale products.
Sun Protection Factor (SPF)
numbers on tanning products
are important and offer a
guide as to how long a person
can stay in the sun, following
application of a product. A
fair-skinned person using a
lotion with an SPF of 15 can
stay outside for no more that
one hour..Higher SPF num-
bers provide'additional pro-
tection but an SPF of 15 will
prevent 95 percent of the sun's
rays from damaging the skin,
Smith said. Iredale products
generally have a built-in SPF:
of 17 because of their mineral-
based ingredients. The prod-
uct line's Amazing Base, which
is a mixture of loose minerals,
has an SPF of 20.
STo treat conditions such as
acne, Smith recommended
the use of products containing

antibacterial agents to fight
the P-Acnes bacteria that
causes pimples. Those with
skin that is shiny hours before
lunch were advised to treat
their skin at night with an oil-
reducing product containing
salicylic acid to minimize oil
production.
Taylor's face was devoid of
problems so Smith simply
began with a good .basic'
cleaning.
Choosing from an exten-
sive palette of colors, Smith
applied Iredale PurePressed
Base to Taylor's face with a
special hand-tied brush.
"It doesn't look like make-
up at all," she said. "There are
no fillers in compressed min-
erals, which contain pinetree
bark extract and pomegranite
extract. You don't need to
apply it more than once a
day."
Smith said that "with
make-up, less is more."
"Brush it straight down,
with just a light cover," she
said. "Continue the coverage
down to the decolette she
said. The hands and the deco-
lette are the first skin areas to


show the effects of aging."
The large hand-tied brush
was used because it promotes
static, vhich helps to hold the
minerals in place. Smith said.
For those with acne problems,
or other imperfections, Smith
,used a smaller camouflage
brush.
After applying some blush-
er to Taylor's cheeks she
added 24-karat gold dust to
gild the skin ever so slightly.
Smith said the gold dust
was real gold, food grade. She
used a pink-toned shadow for
Taylor's eyes.',
"Make-up i san illusion,"
she said. "You can make an
eye appear bigger or the
reverse. She's very fair so a
grey-black liner works best as
an extension to the lashes.
'After that, take the back of
the pencil where it is smooth
to soften the look and then a
nice fluffy brush to fluff it up
and blend it for a natural look.
Buy quality brushes and take
care of them and they will last
forever. Don't dry them up-
side down."
Adding a touch 'of terra
cotta lip gloss and giving the


eyebrows a quick brush, she
had nearly finished Taylor's ,
make-up application.
"The lip gloss contains lily
bulb extract with ginger,"
Smith said. "It will plump up
the lips a bit."
Darlene Da\ison, the ho-
tel's spa director, said that
many teens do not use lip-
stick but that they should use
some sun protection as long
as they read the labels.
"If it says 'petroleum,'
throw it away," she said, add-
Sing that such chemicals were
bad for the skin.
Reading labels on eye
make-up is even more impor-
tant as some chemicals can
cause eye irritations and even
blindness. Use fresh products
and replace them every three
months at least.
Products made from nat-
ural minerals such as the
Iredale line have no such irri-
tating ingredients Smith said.
She regularly offers make-up
tips to plastic surgery pa-
tients.

LANDSCAPING & GARDENING
Q. We just got back from the north and our yard has a lot of weeds in it,
'as well as our flower beds. What can I do to get rid of them so I won't be
fighting them next year?
A. Our northern friends are coming back and finding their yards full of
weeds. One things is to fertilize your lawn with a good weed n feed from
Fertilome. It's then suggested that you follow up by using a week killer.
First give the weed n feed time to work, and usually in several months you
should see something. Remember to read the directions first so that you will
get the best results.You should try your weed n feed again in two or three
months. Don't forget that you still need to put out an insecticide to keep the
insects out. Remember when the temperature is over 70 degrees
the insects are back at work eating the root system of your yard.
Many of you have weeds in your flower beds. If you use pre-
emergence you shouldn't have so many.You can selectively
spray so that you can kill the weeds.There is a new round up out WINNER
called Round Up Quick Pro, this has a surfactant in it so that it
sticks to what you spray it on.We also carry Finale which kills
." s weeds in 2 days. Come in and talk to us about these products

BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR


She hits the alarm clock at
5 a.m., yawns and drags her
sleepy 12-year-old body out
of bed.
By 6 a.m., Kristle Pearson
and her sister, Michelle, 11,
walk out the door to catch the
6:06 a.m. bus to the Student
Leadership Academy of Ven-
ice charter school.
The North Porter says trav-
eling to Venice is worth the
early wake-up and long bus
ride because she is content
attending her small school
and enjoys her teachers.
"Heron Creek Middle
School (in North Port) is too
big," Kristle Pearson said. "My
teachers here are really help-
ful."
Pearson and her friend
Kaylee Hilderth, 12, attended
the academy's open house
recently.


"There are a lot of things I
like about the school," said
Pearson, an A/B student who
joked that lunch is her fa-
vorite subject. "There are
smaller class sizes. My teach-
ers are able to work with me
when I need help. My favorite
subject is language arts. My
teacher, Trina Aker, is very
good. I also think Eric Weber,
my math teacher, is a good
teacher."
Hilderth learned about the
charter school inVenice while
attending Light House Baptist
Church in Murdock. Hil-
derth's mother, Bridget
Quackenbush, whose hus-
band, Dave, teaches at Toledo
Blade Elementary School in
North Port, said the school
offers great opportunities for
students.
"Kaylee has come here
since sixth grade and I believe
the school has really helped
her blossom," Quackenbush


said. "She is happy here. I also
think the school is preparing
the girls for high school. They
are learning leadership roles."
Both Kaylee and Kristle
agreed there is virtually no
"peer pressure at the acade-
my."
"We get to be ourselves
and not someone else," Kay-
lee Hilderth said. "It's so
much easier to go to school:
here because it's a smaller
environment and it helps us,
learn a lot without worrying
about others judging you."
Students at the academy
wear uniforms every day ex-
cept casual day. They partici-
pate in Civil Air Patrol, art,
Spanish and gifted programs.
The Civil Air Patrol's cadet
program has weekly meet-
ings, offers volunteer oppor-
tunities and helps develop
teamwork and. leadership
skills. The multi-level cadet
training program teaches the


principles of aviation and
aerospace flight. Students
learn about rocketry and
physics through hands-on
experiments. They learn
about military history, cus-
toms, drills arid inspection.
They also train for activities in
emergency services, engi-
neering, technology, physical
fitness, and flight training.
There are no portables on
the Academy campus, locat-
ed at 200 Field Ave. It was
transformed from a nursing
home in 2004. The school is
chartered under the Sarasota
County School District. The
charter ends on June 30,2009,
when school officials will vote
on whether, to renew the
charter contract.
"What people don't under-
stand about our charter
school is that it's free," said
Principal Vickie Marble, who

Family-school partnerships increase student success


STAFF REPORT

A good way to help ensure
your child's success in school
is to get involved.
Research shows that stu-
dents do better in school
when families and schools
work together toward the
same goals. There are many
ways that parents can get
involved, such as monitoring
their child's homework, read-
ing books or magazines to-
gether to reinforce concepts
learned in class and volun-
teering in the classroom or on
school committees.
Forging a positive relation-
ship with your child's teacher
is another way to improve the
chances of success. Accord-
ing to Dr. Michael G. Thomp-
son, clinical psychologist and


renowned author of "Raising
Cain" and "Best Friends,
Worst Enemies," "When par-
ents open up about their
hopes and fears for the child,
teachers are better able to
understand, care for and cre-
ate a plan to educate the
child."
Parents, however, often
miss opportunities to have
such conversations, says Dr.
Thompson in a new book,
"Understanding Indepen-
dent School Parents,"coau-
thored with Alison Fox Maz-
zola.
They ask generalized ques-
tions about how their child is
doing in school, which often
lead to a straightforward
review of the report card and
a discussion of the curricu-
lum.


Parents have a right to
well-run parent-teacher
meetings that make the most
of the limited time that is
budgeted for them, notes Dr.
Thompson. By identifying at
the start of the meeting the
concerns that need to be
addressed, he says, parents
can encourage a more effec-
tive parent-teacher meeting.
These concerns (hopes
and fears) should form the
basis of an agenda for the
meeting. If, at the end of the
meeting, parents do not feel
that their questions have
been answered, neither par-
ent nor teacher need be de-
fensive.
They should be willing to
schedule another meeting.
Sometimes 15 or even 30
minutes simply is not enough


time, even when a meeting is
well run and follows an agen-
da. A need to schedule anoth-
er meeting is not a failure on
anyone's part.
When families get involved
with their children's schools-
by helping their children with
homework, attending school
functions and parent-teacher
conferences, and volunteer-
ing at the school children
benefit.
Children are much more
motivated to excel academi-
cally when they see how
much their parents value
education.
To make a difference in
your child's life today, get
involved. For more informa-
tion about independent (pri-
vate) schools, please visit

Pet-friendly shelters available in area


Adopt-a-pet


CHUCK JOHNSTON
PET COLUMNIST


The images of New Or-
leans residents who refused
to leave flooded homes be-
cause they didn't want to
leave their pets underscores
what emergency manage-
ment workers know about
people and pets. Pets aren't
like family members. Pets are
family members.
During the 2004 hurricane
season, Sarasota County
opened pet-friendly shelters
to accommodate residents
with pets who had no place
else to go. Now we have nine
pet-friendly shelters among
our 19 shelters countywide.


We open shelters in'tiers, as
they are needed. Three of the
four shelters in the first tier
accept pets. One of the three
second-tier shelters accepts
pets. Five in the last shelter
tier accept pets. Our accep-
tance of pets is limited to
dogs and cats, which are kept
in their cages and separate
from the people. However,
owners are more than wel-
come to visit and check on
them.
In your personal hurricane
preparedness plan, consider-
public shelters as places of
last resort. Even the best shel-
ters aren't comfortable by
most people's standards.
Taking shelter at the home of
a friend or family member is
much preferred. In your plan,
be sure to consider your pet's
needs, even if you don't plan
to evacuate. The preparations
are nearly the same.
If you plan to evacuate to a
Sarasota County shelter with
your dog or cat (pets may riot
be dropped off) the animal
must be in a durable, secure
cage or carrier you provide,


have current vaccination
information, needed medica-
tions, and food and water
supplies.
You are also responsible
for your pet's "comfort
breaks" and sanitation.
You can prepare now to
help ensure your pet's safety
during a hurricane or other
disaster. Update your pet's
vaccinations and have tags
and/or proof of vaccinations.
Assemble a pet kit that is
readily accessible and stored
in sturdy containers that can
be carried easily (duffel bags,
covered trash containers, etc.)
Your pet disaster supplies
kit should include:
I.D. tag (rabies tag should
be on animal), leash, I.D. on
all belongings, water and
food bowls, carrier or cage,
medication, food for seven
days
Medications (two-week
supply)
Medical records (stored in
a waterproof container)
A pet first aid kit
Sturdy leashes, harnesses
Carriers to transport pets


safely and ensure that yours
can't escape
Current photo for your
pets in case they get lost
Enough dry food for sever-
al days
Potable water, about the
same amount as people need.
Bowls
Pet beds and toys, if easily
transportable
The county's Web site,
scgov.net, has the complete
list of shelters and their
addresses, along with other
valuable hurricane-prepared-
ness information. Select
Hurricane Preparation from
the Find Information list on
the right panel.
All of us in Emergency
Services appreciate the pro-
found bond between pet
owners and their pets.
We urge you to include pet
preparedness in your hurri-
cane planning to help protect
them when disaster strikes.

job is


a real scream


Eco-Kids start new season


BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER


Someone sent me an arti-
cle entitled "The Scream
Queen." It is about a woman
who teaches people how to
scream.
It's dne of those articles
that while one is reading it,
one suddenly realizes the
need for a cup of coffee.
Her students are members
of heavy metal or punk rock
bands. (Please .note I wrote
members, not singers.) These
people apparently need to
learn how to scream and are
taught to do so by this
woman, who will remain
nameless because I hope by
the time I write this she has
found a better job.
She couldn't possibly have
a worse one. And she sure
could! She is, according to the
article, a "classically trained
voice teacher," by which the
author meant she was trained
to teach people to sing classi-
cal music, not that she was
trained in a classical way -
but I digress, as I always do
when people put their
adverbs in the wrong place..
'She could be teaching
young aspiring singers to sing
classical songs. And why not?-
Thanks to Josh Groban,
young people and some not-
so-young have discovered
classical music.
Back to screaming. Mind
youi, I am not in favor .of it.
Except, of course, in emer-
gencies. Only, this woman is
quoted as follows: "screaming
should never feel like it
sounds." "
At tie risk of agreeing with
any of this, let me just add:
that is a relief.
Then we are taught (and I
use that term loosely) that,
"screaming should never
sound angry. It should feel


like meditating."
Yes, read that bit again. I've
been sitting here quietly
thinking for 10 minutes (yes,
while drinking coffee) how
anyone could scream and not
sound angry. But then again,
my resources are very limited.
I have never read a book on
screaming, surprisingly have
never discussed its physiolo-
gy with a physician and do
not, myself, scream.
The article provides us
with a photo. The teacher,
looking quite pleasant with
long, curly, reddish-brown
hair, is shown with a young
member of a rock group who
- through some mistake, no
doubt is covered with tat-
toos the article refers to as
being "heavily inked."
I'm quite pleased to be
ignorant of the latest tattoo
technology.
This young man has,
according to the teacher, "a
great scream." No doubt his
career will be very successful.
Now, about howthe scream-
ing is taught. It involves push-
ing on the screamer's abdomen
and having him scream while
biting down on a pencil "to
achieve the proper vocal-pro-
jecting technique." But I'm sure
you realized that
Finally the teacher reveals:
"My students come in ner-
vous." It's how they feel when
they leave that I'm concerned
about. No mention of pay-
ment. I presume one pays!
I knew we lived in a world
where there was a large lack of
good taste and well-man-
nered behavior. This saddens
me. But to leam that a singer
teacher wastes her life teach-
ing people to scream? Well, I
could just scream.

More than 500 children
and adults attended the sec-
ond Eco-Kids kickoff party at
the Dallas White Park.
The Eco-Kids, an environ-
mental club open to all chil-
dren ages 5 and up, explored
the theme of "birds."
"This event is to get kids
excited and interested in the
environment where they live,"
said Alice White, founder of
People for Trees, and sponsor
of the Eco-Kids program.
Children and their parents
took part in birdhouse paint-
ing, learning what birds eat,
building bird-feeders and
learning about the environ-
ment birds live in.
They also saw a live Florida
panther, "Sammy," from
Lions, Tigers & Bears of Punta
Gorda, and North Port Animal
Control Officer Win Sell
brought "Harley," one of his
"wolf dogs" for kids to pet.

while still having fun.
"One of the musts for our
group is that each kid must be
with a parent," White said,
adding this gets the parents
involved in their child's expe-
rience.
There is no advance regis-
tration needed for most
events.
However, White said,
everyone must dress accord-

A donation is asked for

travels from her Bradenton
!'ome daily. "People think it's
a private school; it's not, it's a
charter school. We do not
have any portable buildings
on campus, all of our stu-
dents are in classrooms."
Marble handpicked the


majority of teachers at the
school based on their teach-
ing experience. All teachers
had to be state certified.
Marble said there are still
openings for the sixth-, sev-
enth- and eighth-grade class-
es. Transportation is provided
to all students at the acade-
my.


The academy recently en-'
tered a partnership with Mote
Marine Laboratory in Sara-
sota. As a science education
organization, Mote offered a
trip on Sept. 29 for all acade-
my students who have donat-
ed more than 20 service hours
to the school.
Students received a be-


hind-the-scenes tour of Mote
Marine Laboratory and per-
formed a shark dissection.
"All of our seventh and
eighth graders this year will
go on four trips to Mote,"
Marble said. "This will be a
carrot for our sixth graders,
gives them something to look
forward to, and helps us to


retain them."
Marble said the academy
provides an academic and
social atmosphere for stu-
dents.
"We help encourage stu-
dents to discover and develop
their individual talents and to
recognize that reading is a
requisite skill for scholarship


in all areas," she said. "Our
goal is to create stimulating
opportunities for students to
develop leadership skills, and
to install in students the value
of volunteerism through ser-
vice learning."

The bidding has proceeded:

1 Pass 2NT Pass
What do you bid now?
A You might feel inclined to bid
three clubs, but what point is there to
that? You certainly aren't considering
five clubs as the final contract, but
what if partner plays you for a
stronger (or at least more distribution-
al) holding and raises to four clubs?
You will have bypassed what might
be your best spot. Bid three no trump.

The bidding has proceeded:
WEST NORTH EAST SOUTH
14* 1 24 ?
What action do you take?
A We do not think this is the hand
for any two-suited takeout you have
available, including a responsive dou-
ble. We would simply bid two hearts
and, if the opportunity arises, com-
pete again in diamonds. (Two hearts
is forward-going but not forcing.)

The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
Pass Pass 10 Pass
24 Pass ?
What do you bid now?
A No matter how shaded partner's
two-over-one response by a passed
hand might be, there should be good
play for game. Jump to three no
trump. That not only describes your
balanced hand with a five-card major,
but it protects your tenaces from a
lead through at the opening gun.
Q 4 Vulnerable, as South you hold:

The bidding has proceeded:

1* Pass 1NT
20 Pass ?
What action do you take?


WEST

A Do not for a second contemplate
bidding your six-card minor. Partner
has nine or 10 cards in the major
suits, so to expect diamond support
would be wishful thinking. Correct
to two spades, despite the disparity
in strength between your doubletons.
Partner quite probably has longer
spades than hearts, and the heart
honors will be useful at a spade con-
tract as well.

Getting emotional while


retiring my old running shoes


J.J. Andrews
BACK OF THE PACK

A moment of silence and
time for a tear was needed
after last Wednesday's run.
I knew that would be the
last adventure in my running
shoes. Once again I've blown
way past the suggested
mileage, my big toes are pok-
ing out of both shoes and a
layer of outer sole has been
worn away on my right shoe.
Not exactly suggested run-
ner's advice, pushing a pair of
shoes to that point. Logging
much more than 400 miles is
discouraged by most experts
who know better than me.
And once again, I've
cruised well past 600 miles
and reached the point where
my broke-down shoes are
affecting me physically. My
knees and shins ache just a lit-
tle bit after my runs, a true
sign your running shoes have
broken down.
So I headed north to Urban
Sole, 2300 Bee Ridge Road, in
search of guidance and a new
pair of shoes.
Shoes for J.J.
On the verge of celebrating
its fourth anniversary, Urban
Sole is the only specialty
store I know of in the area that
caters to the needs ofrunners.
Owners Alan and Gina Boiko
both are runners who know
the right questions to ask and
have fitted me for my last
three pair of running shoes.
They haven't led me astray
even once, and they'll dis-
count if you're .a registered
member of a running club!
Companies that specialize
in running shoes Asics,
Brooks, Mizuno .and New
Balance --go for substance
*over style. Consequently,
these brands can be difficult
to find at major market stores.
That's where places like
Urban Sole are important, as
well as employees who
understand what each shoe
does.
I wound up trying some-
thing new in the Mizuno
Inspire ($89.99), and so far,
I'm enjoying them. More than
anything, it was nice to finally
select pair of shoes built to
be a durable trainer as well as
light enough for road racing.
In case you've never read
my column, running has
enabled me to slowly lose 60-
plus pounds the past three
years. The last 35 of those
pounds have come off the
past 14 months or so.
When you weigh in the
mid-200s, you're pretty much


a ~I


limited to the motion-control
category of shoes like the
Brooks Beast designed for
extra cushioning and extra
support. I've slowly down-
graded with each new pair
of shoes, and my Mizuno
Inspire shoes are the most
lightweight pair I've tried out
so far.
It felt odd to slide into a
shoe that had very little
"extra" support and cushion-
ing. All of my previous shoes
felt like my feet were sur-
rounded by pillows, while
these new ones are closer to
running in my bare feet.
Every runner is different
Gina cannot recommend a
single shoe for every person.
An athlete's best bet is to go
to a running store, tell the
person what you want the
shoe for (high-mileage train-
ing, racing, casual jogging,
etc.) and specifics about your
running style.
However, not every person
has the time to drive to spe-
cialty shoe stores in Sarasota,
Tampa or Naples. Some peo-
ple are just starting out and
simply want a pair of reliable
shoes.
Here are Gina's top four
picks based on the shoes hav-
ing a little of all categories
(cushioning, stability, durabil-
ity, etc.), appealing to the
widest range of runner types
(fast, slow, male, female) and
comparable prices (all are
listed at $90).
A shopper's best bet is to
try them on and go with the
one that feels the most com-
fortable:
Asics GT-2100 Quite
possibly the most popular
Asics shoe, and the type of
shoe I retired one week ago
after logging more than 600
miles in them (and that is too
many miles for iANY shoe).
This stability .shoe drew all
positive reviews from-Run-
ner's World testers. I agree
with them and would have
bought another pair if I didn't
want to try out the lighter
Mizuno shoe so much.
Brooks Adrenaline -
Considered a stability shoe,
the most recent Runner's
World review complimented
the updates and recommends
it for "bigger runners with
normal arches looking for a
stable, responsive trainer."
Personally, I downgraded
from the heavy-dury Beast
shoes to these a year ago and


loved them.
Mizuno Wave Rider or
Inspire The Inspire is con-
sidered a stability shoe and
reviews on Runner's World
compliment its lightweight
nature, but questioned its
overall cushioning (let's see
how mine hold up over the
miles). The Rider falls into
the cushioned-shoe category,
though this well-established
model in the Mizuno line is
complimented for its stability,
also.
New Balance 766 -
Considered a motion-control
shoe, Runner's World testers
say it's ideal for "bigger run-
ners or heavy heel-strikers."
Many people enjoy the New
Balance brand of shoes,
though I've never been a fan.
I really think it's one of
those Chevy vs. Ford type of
opinions.

Even on Taylor's flawless

ural glow, which Smith set
into place with D2H, a
hydrator that Smith said is
20 times more effective
than water.
"It is qsed to set make up,"
she said, "but is good when
traveling too so your skin
won't get so dried out on the

An hour later, all 30
