South Venice post office delayed, again


Frustration builds as the feds put the facility on
hold to sort out design changes to accommodate
new equipment.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

South Venice residents will
have to wait a little longer for
an area postal facility: The
U.S. Postal Service has put on
hold the planned building on
Jacaranda Boulevard pending
an internal review.
The internal review will
affect all large-scale post


office buildings currently in
the design phase, said Paul
Harrington, a governmental
relations specialist for the
U.S. Postal Service.
"Larger facilities planned
for construction are being
reviewed to accommodate
projected developments in
mail processing. All the de-
signs currently in the pipeline
are in review," Harrington


said.
Postal officials were unable
to give a time
frame for the
design review
but insist it
will be done
quickly.
"It's not
really a delay,
more like a
pause," said
spokesman Staub
Jim Quirk He
said the U.S. Postal Office
engineering department is
working on designs to fit new


sorting machines.
"Right now letter-size en-
velopes are sorted in order of
delivery. They are delivered to
local postal offices where car-
riers have to add catalogs and
larger pieces of mail. New
technology is quickly coming
online that will sort larger
pieces as well. The technolo-
gy is: moving more rapidly
than we anticipated," Quirk
said.
He said the new sorting
machines won't take up as
much space and will increase
efficiency in "casing the mail"


- postal jargon for how mail
is processed and delivered
between facilities.
"If you have a design plan
calling for a 3,600-square-foot
facility, and it may only take
2,800, why buy more bricks
when you don't have to?"
Quirk said.

No island home for Pelican Pete's


Flu-shot clinic are now
open for at-risk citizens.


Losing dropouts in

the numbers debate

Tracking students is easier than ever, say officials,
but defining who is a dropout continues to be dif-
ficult. SCOPE tackled the issue a few years back,
and decided to focus on head counts rather than
argue over dropout rates.


SUN PHOTO BY JJ ANDREWS
Pelican Pete's Playland had its deal to lease the vacant Food Lion store, pictured above,
fall through because strip mall owners wouldn't extend the deal beyond 6.5 years, accord-
ing to Pelican Pete owner Scott Buda. He was told by the Lindsay-Rialto Group the strip
mall may be demolished seven years from now.


The Englewood-based amuse-
ment center couldn't get a lease at
its intended location for more
than seven years because the
landlord plans to demolish the
Rialto Shopping Center.

BY JJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

A common complaint in Venice is there's
nothing for young people to do, and few
places that cater to family outings.
The island nearly had both shortcomings
resolved as Englewood-based Pelican Pete's
Playland had a letter of intent signed to sub-
lease the former Food Lion grocery store at
the Rialto Shopping Center. Plans were to
put in a 6,000-square-foot video arcade, 18-
hole miniature golf course, laser tag arena,
concessions and more.
And then the deal fell through because


the strip mall owners wouldn't agree to a
lease beyond 6.5 years, which is when Food
Lion lease expires. The store has been out of
business and vacant for more than a
decade.
"(Lindsay-Rialto Group LLC) told me
they had plans down the road to demolish
the building." Pelican Pete's owner Scott
Buda said. "We already had plans and blue-
prints going.... I was really looking forward
to coming to Venice.
"It's heartbreaking the deal fell through. I
would've loved to have come there. We
would've been in a central location to serve
people all over, down to Englewood and
North Port and Venice. Guess it just wasn't
meant to be."
For businesses already renting spots at
the Rialto, the news of Pelican Pete's fate
creates an uncertain future about whether
they'll have a roof over their heads seven
years from now.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is part
two of a two-part series on the
dropout rate in Sarasota County.
BYGREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County resident
Alan Kunerth looked at the
district's Referendum Pro-
gress Report, released in
April, in disbelief.
The brochure states the
district, using referendum
dollars, helped reduce the
dropout rate from 7.6 percent
in 1999 to 2.9 percent in 2003-
04. It didn't ring true to
Kunerth.
Never mind that the 7.6
percent figure is an error the
Florida Department of Edu-
cation refuses to acknowl-
edge, and one the district said
it felt compelled to use. The
actual dropout rate in 1999
was 3.6 percent, not 7.6 per-
cent.
Kunerth didn't like the fact
that 2.9 percent only mea-
sures a one-year dropout rate.
He wants the district to use
only a four-year rate, which
brings the official dropout
rate to 12.3 percent, assuming
this year's dropout rate re-
mains the same as last year.
Kunerth says the actual
dropout rate is more like 39
percent. But his statistics are
dismissed by the district
because his definition of a
dropout does not agree with


the state's.
Not just numbers
Kunerth admits he doesn't
understand the state's com-
plicated formula for deter-
mining the county dropout
rate. He's not the only one
struggling with dropout data
provided by the state and
other experts.
A study group organized in
September 2002 by Sarasota
County Openly Plans for
Excellence tackled tie thorny
issue of dropout rates and
found it equally perplexing.
"If you talk to someone
who has done research on
this issue, they will tell you it
gets real confusing," said Tim
Dutton, executive director of
SCOPE.
"There was considerable
discussion about the dropout
rate," Dutton said. "We dedi-
cated two full sessions to the
issue. We concluded that, yes,
there are many ways to mea-
sure dropout rates, but that
doesn't change the fact that
we care about each and every
student who drops out. So we
said, let's look at absolute
numbers of kids who drop-
ped out regardless of the
rate."
"It is important the school
district and school board
track those rates, but the
number of kids who drop out

Reserve-fund policy influences

what a county pays to borrow


CountyAdministrator Jim Ley will recommend
policies for all excess funds. The county
commission has set aside uncommitted revenue
for several possibilities.


BYJACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

Local governments typi-
cally set aside "reserve funds"


for unexpected events, such
as the infrastructure failures
that crippled Charlotte Coun-
ty after Hurricane Charley
struck last summer, but many


haven't established policies
for managing other excess
revenue.
Sarasota County is typical.
Several years ago, the county
commission adopted a reso-

fund reserve at 5 percent. It

GOOD ADVICE
In addition to vaccination, the risk of contracting respiratory
infections can be reduced by following a few simple steps:
Clean hands often with soap and water or an alcohol-based
hand cleanser.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
Stay home when you are sick and keep sick children home.
Avoid close contact with people who are ill, if possible.
Do not share eating utensils, drinking glasses, towels or other
personal items.
Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or
sneeze.


$30 per person.
Influenza is a serious but
preventable illness that tends
to strike in January and Feb-
ruary. Publix is offering the
service at its stores, it said, to
make it easier to keep the
disease from striking its
patrons.
The flu shot clinics are
quick and easy, requiring
those who wish to get the
shot to fill out a brief risk-
assessment form and con-
sent form.
Shots will continue to be


offered in Sarasota, Nokomis,
Venice, Englewood and Port
Charlotte through Nov. 14.
For locations and times visit
publix.com/flu or call toll-
free (877) 629-3580.
To receive a flu shot or
pneumonia vaccination you
must be at least 9 years of
age, not be on any antibiotic,
not be suffering from an ac-
tive infection, not have an
allergy to eggs and not have
an allergy to thimerosal, gen-
tamicin or other aminoglyco-
sides.


Tropical Bob:


Earlier warning


Tropical Storm Gabrielle
surprised us in 2001. It grew
quickly off Southwest Florida
and blasted ashore at Sara-
sota near dawn on Sept. 14.
Warnings were inadequ-
ate. School children waited
for buses in rain and gale-
force winds.
As we now watch a dis-
turbance in the same area,
we need official information


no one provides. The Nation-
al Hurricane Center waits
until a disturbance becomes
a depression before it offers
a track and intensity projec-
tion.
That's inadequate. Any
disturbance within 48 hours
of landfall needs a projection
of landfall and intensity.
NHC, we need earlier
warnings.

Why there's new hope for the mentally ill


Sometimes the resources are there,
but are concealed behind a thicket of
red tape and dead ends.


BY JOHN MCCAFFERTY
SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUN

If you're new to this area,
have mental illness in your
family and are looking for
help, you may feel over-
whelmed by the complexity
of the local mental health
system.
Search for a nearby state
mental hospital and you won't
find one. Like many other
state mental hospitals across
the nation, G. Pierce Wood
Memorial Hospital in Arcadia
shut down, in February 2002,
after serving Southwest Flor-
ida for more than 50 years. In
December of that same year,
the former Bon Secours Ven-
ice Hospital (now the Venice
Regional Medical Center)
decided to close the psychi-
atric unit it operated since
the 1980s.
Despite this, there are
many other places in Sarasota
County where the mentally ill
or their families can get help.
But where do you start?
One good place is with the
National Alliance on Mentally
Illness, the nation's largest
grassroots mental health
organization, with about
200,000 members and 1,000
state and local affiliates.
Crisis, chaos and shock
In this area, Barry Jeffrey
of Venice, a family resource
specialist, is NAMI's only
employee. He's been helping
families navigate through the
complex mental health sys-
tem here for the past 10 years.
"I do a lot of hand-holding,
primarily on the phone with
distraught mothers," he said.
'As a liaison, I tell them where
to go, what to do, some ques-
tions to ask, what's available
and what's not, and what to
expect from treatment."
Jeffrey deals with "a lot of
crisis, chaos: and shock and
With people feeling over-
whelmed." He experiences a
lot of hostility because people
are upset that they can't con-
trol mental illness.
"I try to remain calm and
listen to them and look for
opportunities to speak to
them," he said. "NAMI is a
safe place to come because
everything we do for families
is confidential."
As a bridge builder be-
tween those, needing help


and those providing it, Jeffrey
warns families they are only
going to get so much out of
the mental health commun-
ity "because our workers are
understaffed and overworked.
The services are so frag-
mented."
Providers
Depending on a family's
problem, Jeffrey puts them in
touch with local psychiatrists
and other physicians and
mental health professionals,
and organizations such as the
local community mental
health center (Coastal Be-
havioral Healthcare Inc.) a
community substance abuse
center (First Step of Sarasota),
hospitals (Bayside Center for
Behavioral Health at Sarasota
Memorial Hospital), Beacon
House, Venice Community
Mental Health Center, the
Florida Center, Access One
and other agencies.
Once family members un-
derstand what services dhese
places offer, they may begin
hearing about newer mental
health programs, such as
Crisis Intervention Team,
Florida Assertive Community
Team, Family Emergency
Treatment Center, Mental
Health Court,- Family to
Family and a new jail diver-
sion project.
SCOPE steps in
With so many agencies
and programs, it's no wonder
many people are glad to hear
that a comprehensive, new
community mental health
plan is being .developed for
Sarasota County. It's expected
to bring better coordination
and collaboration among the
many health service pro-
viders.
For that we can thank a
nonprofit organization known
as SCOPE (Sarasota County
Openly Planm for Excellence)
and its many volunteers and
supporters.
During 2002-2003, more
than 50 SCOPE volunteers
met weekly for seven months
to study mental health ser-
vices and service needs in
Sarasota County. At many of
the meetings, they heard pre-
sentations by key resource
people in the community on
various aspects of mental
health services.
Mary Kumpe of Sarasota


was chair and Don Ottinger of
Venice was co-chair of the
study group.
In the spring of 2003,
SCOPE issued a 60-page
report on its findings. During
the course of SCOPE's study,
there were other notable
efforts to improve mental
health services, and many
recommendations in SCOPE's'
report support efforts that
were already under way.
For example, the 'Com-
munity Alliance convened a
task force to evaluate acute
care services.
The SCOPE report said
27,065 Sarasota County resi-
dents ages 18-54 and 28,561
ages 55 and older have a di-
agnosable mental health dis-
order. According to its study,
21 percent of high school
students in Sarasota County
reported they have seriously
considered suicide, and 15
percent reported they have
attempted suicide.
Sad for seniors
The report also had news
of special interest to senior
citizens. More than 31 percent
of the cowunr's total popula-
tion is 65 or older, the SCOPE
report said. Though depres-
sion and anxiety are the
Most prevalent mental health
issues among older adults,
less than 1 percent of older
adults ask for help."
And without treatment,
-depression in older adults
can lead to physical abuse,
alcohol abuse and suicide,
the report warned.
In 2003, SCOPE pointed
out, Florida ranked 42nd out
of 51 U.S. jurisdictions in per
capital spending on mental
health. Yet, for every $1 in-
vested in mental health treat-
ment, $3-$8 are saved due to
reduced criminal activity.
"For the amount it costs to
jail or hospitalize a single per-
son for one year," the report,
found, "Florida could provide,
medications and treatment
for 10 people with mental ill-
ness."
Putting the
pieces together
The SCOPE study team
recommended that a new
mental health coordinator
position be established and
that the person who filled
this job should coordinate an
effort to create a new mental
health plan for Sarasota
County.
.Guess what? It's being
done, thanks in no small part
to an Implementation Task

er Janice Hathy before a recent NAMI meeting at Venice Health Park. Jeffrey is the mother of
NAMI family resource specialist Barry Jeffrey.


Force chaired by Sally
Graham of Sarasota and
Ottinger.
Following a nationwide
search, Michael Theall of
Fort Wayne, Ind., was hired
as the new coordinator and
started on the job in late
March. Formerly chief oper-
ating officer for a communi-
ty mental health center cov-
ering four counties, Theall
has 27 years of mental
health experience.
Now a Florida state em-
ployee assigned to Sarasota-
County, he's one of the busi-
est people working at the
Health and Services Building
in Sarasota.
Getting the law involved
The SCOPE report also
said local police officers "are-
not adequately prepared to
handle encounters with per-
sons with mental illness." It
urged the sheriff's depart-
ment and municipal, police
departments to offer "crisis
intervention training" to law
enforcement officers.
Since then, 100 Sarasota
County police officers have
completed a Crisis Inter-
vention Team program, an
intensive 40-hour course of
specialized training for uni-
formed patrol law enforce-
ment officers in how to han-
dle persons with mental ill-
ness in crisis.
Graham said the -program
"ensures that only CIT-
trained officers respond to


those persons."
After many months of
meetings, the implementa-
tion team recently completed
its work and will make a final
report to the community.,
We don't make it easy
Recently, I met at SCOPE's
offices in Sarasota with com-
munity researchers Marylee
Bussard, the staff support
person for the mental health
study group, and Catherine
Clouse, who has been in-
volved with SCOPE's imple-
mentation task force.
"What surprised me most
is how Byzantine the mental
health services system is,"
said Bussard. "There's a huge
range of service providers
and settings for mental
health treatment. To try and


navigate all that and figure
out what's out there was diffi-
cult enough for the study
group but for someone with
mental illness*it must have
been even harder."
Did anything about the
study surprise Clouse?
"If I'm brutally honest, one
of the big things I realized
from .doing this study," she
said, "is that I had mental ill-
ness in my own family and it
was shunned and put under
the rug. Suddenly, it hit
home oh, that's what it
was. If I had known, I could
have reacted better to that
situation involving that per-
son in my family."

BORROW from page 1A
thought it accomplished the
overalll objective.
On Sept. 13, the subject
unexpectedly came up when
commissioner David Mills
asked whether the county's
reserve policy adequately
complied with accepted stan-
dards, and was informed by
County Administrator Jim
Ley there was more to be
done.
"You have a common un-
derstanding," he responded.
"The administration's goal is
to produce something in
writing that we all agree to."
He suggested that fiscal
officials were preparing a
series of policies that would
formalize the process.
On Monday, Ley told the
Pelican Press, "The county
has a variety of reserves.
Some are required by state


law, such as the one for self-
funded health insurance.
Others are described in bond
covenants. What we need to
do is look at all of them."
During the commission's
annual bud-
get delibera-
tions Ley
wants to es-
tablish poli-
cies for excess
money not
pledged to a
specific pur-
pose, but set
aside in re- Ley
serve ac-
counts for general purposes.
Each policy would address
how the money could be
used, and would be replen-
ished.
While the commissioners
often lament there isn't
enough money for many pro-
jects, the recent spike in


property assessments has
dramatically increased the
annual flow of ad valorem tax
revenue and made it possible
to set aside funds for still
undetermined purposes.
"The commission has dis-
cretion over what can be
done with extra funds," Ley
said. "It could reduce the mill-
age rate, or agree to do certain
projects. For instance, it
recently put $5 million in
reserve for the rails-to-trails
project and SCAT (public
buses)."
Bond rating agencies that
determine how much local
governments pay to borrow
large sums of money evaluate
how they spend it, and
among the items they closely
monitor are reserve funds.
Sarasota County is regarded
as an excellent risk and wants
to stay that way.
In addition to a $22.6 mil-


lion general fund reserve
account, and $5 million set
aside for rails-to-trails and
buses, the commission has
tucked away $4 million for
waterfront land purchases, $3
million for working capital,
$2.5 million for neighbor-
hood improvements, $2 mil-
lion for renovations and
repairs, and $800,000 for con-
tingencies.
"What we will suggest are
reserve accounts for proba-
bly a dozen funds," Ley said,
"and describe how and
when the money can be
spent. Right now the com-
mission has a policy on its
general fund reserve, but it
needs to become state of
the art."
The county's fiscal year
budget will exceed $1 billion
for the first time this year,
although the figure is some-
what misleading.


Government budgets
must adhere to federal and
state reporting laws that
may require "double
counts" added into the bot-
tom line.
Internal money shifts that
occur when revenue.is moved
from department to depart-
ment and one county
account to another are
often totaled before an actual
expenditure is recorded.
These shifts are added into
the budget and can signifi-
cantly inflate the total.
The overall figure can be
further skewed by internal
charges, reserves carried
forward from one annual
budget to the next, fund
transfers, debt proceeds
and other items that don't
really represent expendi-
tures. It's why the county
also reports an annual net
figure that is less.


DELAYED from page 1A
Sarasota County Board of
Commissioners, fired off a let-
ter to state lawmakers on
Wednesday asking them to
help move along the project.
The formal request, sent to
U.S. Sens. Mel Martinez and
Bill Nelson and U.S. Rep.
Katherine Harris, came days
after the BOCC was unable to
obtain information on the
timing of the U.S. Postal Serv-
ice investigation 'into a new
design.
"We now face another de-
lay for an undetermined
length of time due to the pos-
sibility that new equipment
being used by the U.S. Postal
Service will not fit into the
building as designed," Mer-
cier wrote. "Construction of

DEBATE from page 1A

TAKE THIS SIMPLE TEST
Q. What is Sarasota County's high school dropout rate?

a. 39 percent
b. 12.3 percent
c. 2.9 percent
c. All of the above

A.: All of the above, depending on your definition of "dropout" and how you count them.

Explanation

a. 39 percent is the percentage of students who entered county high schools in ninth grade but who
did not graduate from county schools with his or her 12th-grade class, according to one source.
Experts dismiss this as a less-than-useful statistic because dropouts under this scenano don't meet the
state's official definition. Most questionable is the failure to take into account the mobility of families,
i.e. students who move into and out of the district. For example, under this calculation, a student who
moved from North Port High School to Port Charlotte High School would be considered a dropout. So
would a deceased student. So would a student who was held back for a year, but went on to graduate.
It does reflect, to some degree, the percentage of students who did not stay in one place throughout
their academic career.

b. 12.3 percent is the percentage of students in grades nine-12 who withdrew from Sarasota County
schools over the last four years for any of several reasons cited in Florida Statutes. The four-year
dropout rate (in this scenario assuming this year's dropout rate will be the same as last year's 2.9 per-
cent) is accepted by most research experts as the most complete picture of dropout activity in postsec-
ondary schools.

c. 2.9 percent is the one-year percentage of students who dropped out of Sarasota County schools in
2003-04. according to the Florida Department of Education. While technically accurate, some believe
the one-year dropout rate doesn't adequately describe the dropout problem.

To add to the confusion, leading educational institutions, notably the Center for Education Statistics,
Manhattan Institute and Florida Department of Education, all use different methods to calculate


dropout and graduation rates.


(600-plus) each year, is unac-
ceptable. We finally said, 'OK,
we can argue (forever) what
the dropout rate is, but it is
more important to talk about
what to do about it.' "
SCOPE recommended the
district and state come up
with an easier way to present
graduation and dropout in-
formation. A volunteer fol-
low-up Implementation Task
Force is still discussing cur-
rent reporting issues while it
tackles the headier issue of
what to do about reducing
the dropout rate, Dutton said.
What SCOPE found
The 2002 SCOPE report
found between 1997-2001,
1,672 students enough to
fill an entire middle school--
dropped out of Sarasota


County public high schools,
resulting in a four-year
dropout rate of 14.5 percent.
The same report shows the
Florida DOE Web site erro-
neously reported the 1998-99
dropout rate at 7.6 percent. It
corrected the statistic locally
with approval by the state,
reported SCOPE.
SCOPE researchers said
they found several reasons
dropout rates and graduation
rates may not provide a clear
sense of the extent of high
school dropout of or how
many complete their high
school education.
A ninth-grade student who
doesn't complete high school
in four years in not counted in
the graduation rate (another
way of tracking or looking at
the dropout issue).

The Florida DOE also
publishes a five-year gradua-
tion rate, which is used to see
if a given group of students
has a higher graduation if if
followed a year past the typi-
cal four-year period. The
five-year graduation rate for
students who entered ninth
grade during the 1997-98
school year increased by 6.9
percent over the four-year
graduation .rate, SCOPE
reported.
SCOPE also pointed to the


district's exclusion of GED
students from graduation
rates. Students who withdraw
from public high school to
enroll in GED preparation
classes through the Adult and
Community Education Cen-
ter are not counted as drop-
outs. Since, they do not com-
plete their high school educa-
,tion in public education, they
are also not counted in the
graduation rate, reported
SCOPE.
SCOPE also found those
who withdrew from middle
school but were not known to
have re-enrolled in school are
not counted as dropouts.
Schools are not always able to
locate middle school students
who do not re-enroll or who
are not attending school,
SCOPE wrote.
More confusion
Add to the mix different
calculation methods and def-
initions -among states that
tend to complicate determin-
ing a national graduation and
dropout rate.
SCOPE said efforts by the
National Center for Educa-
tional Statistics to get all states
to report dropout data result-
ed in limited participation
due to differences in how
states collect data. For exam-
ple, several states, including
Florida, don't include those
pursuing their GED in
dropout statistics, while
many others do.
The NCES reports the
1999-2000 national gradua-
tionrate of 86.5 percent, while
the Manhattan Institute re-
ported it as 69 percent. The
Manhattan Institute reported
the Florida graduation rate for
the same year at 55 percent,
while Florida's DOE reported


it at 62.3 percent.
NCES reports a national
high school completion rate
that represents the propor-
tion of 18- to 24-year-olds not
currently enrolled in high
school who completed a high
school diploma or received
their GED or equivalent. And
the Manhattan Institute re-
ports a national high school
graduation rate that consid-
ers only students who receive
a standard diploma.
Guesswork?
While many states use esti-
mates to determine the rates,
Florida uses hard data and
has been doing so since the
80s.
According to the DOE,
Florida is one of only a hand-
ful of states that use a student
identifier system. It's similar


to issuing a Social Security
number to track the where-
abouts of students.
The student identifier sys-
tem, established in 1986, did-
n't become fully operational
until 1991, said a DOE
spokesperson.
"It takes the guesswork out
of graduation and dropout
rates. Very few other states
track like this. We can even
track the courses kids take. It's
very comprehensive."
Comprehensive, perhaps.
But comprehendible? No,
says Kunerth.
"The district needs to make
this more understandable and
not so complicated for the
average citizen," he said. "It
needs to be believable."

Park, Minn., for comment

Uncertain future
Shop owners have heard
rumors for months that Lind-
say-Rialto would demolish
the strip mall, originally built
in the 1960s, and sell the
nearly 6.3 acres of land along
U.S. 41 Business.
That speculation appears
to make sense, especially in
light of Sarasota County Prop-
erty Appraiser data. The
86,000-square-foot building
is only worth $269,000, while
the land itself is valued at $2.3
million.
Lindsay-Rialto Group
bought the strip mall April 24,
2003, for $2.6 million.
Ntino's Restaurant has
been a staple of the Rialto for
25 years. In the absence of a
true anchor store, like a
Publix or Albertson's, this 70-
seat restaurant has been the
major draw ever since Food
Lion shut down.
At 21 years old, Anthony
Aritonaras just bought the
restaurant from founder
Steve Fotos and took over
day-to-day operations last
Saturday. His lease also ex-
pires in seven years, and after
hearing what the Pelican Pete
owners said, he admits he'll
be preparing just in case his
lease isn't renewed.
"I've been thinking about
that since day one," Anto-
naras said. "It's always been in
the back of my head. But until
my lease is up, I'll be here."
Holding on
City officials already are
preparing forU.S. 41 Business
corridor redevelopment by
creating the Venetian Urban
Design Overlay District, set to
be approved later this month.
This new district will run
from Milan Avenue to the
Circus Bridge.
Few of the shop owners at
Rialto would comment on the
record. Of those interviewed,

Jackie Stringfellow and Fran Vernamonti have been volunteering at Paw Prints Thrift Shop for
more than four years. Both would be sad to see the Rialto Shopping Center torn down.


none of them has a lease
agreement lasting longer
than seven years and most
are for shorter periods.
Most of the units are rent-
ed, despite the mall parking
lot being empty most of the
time. Tenants include Atti-
tudes In Dance, a laundro-
mat, Ntino's, Paw Prints Thrift
Shop, Optical Work, A Plus
Barber Shop, Island Com-
munity Church and Dup-
licate Bridge Club.
One owner is afraid the
uncertain future will lead to
employees seeking other
jobs. Concerns about mall
improvements also were rais-
ed. Lindsay-Rialto allegedly
promised to paint and repave
the parking lot a year ago, but
still has not done so.
"We're glad to be here and
enjoy dealing with (Lindsay-
Rialto). We'll just have to wait
and see what happens," said
Ed Laesser, manager of Paw
Prints, which just signed a
three-year deal and is ex-
panding.
Losing one's home
Pelican Pete's was looking


to relocate after Barbara and
Edward Buda decided to
retire and sell their Engle-
wood center, which was
mostly outdoors and includ-
ed a go-cart track.
A car dealership will re-
place the State Road 776 loca-
tion, so Scott Buda Barbara
and Edward's son has been
looking to relocate and make
use of all the miniature golf,
video arcade and laser tag
equipment. His goal was to
create an indoor family
amusement center, but Buda
needed at least 18,000 square
feet to make it work.
Food Lion's old store -
29,000 square feet at $6 per
square foot, for a monthly
rent of about $14,500 was
the only place he could
afford. Almost everywhere
else, rent was between $10-
$14 a square foot and as high
as $25 in Sarasota city.
Buda estimates he would
have to charge-at least $10 per
round of miniature golf in
order to cover monthly rent of
$30,000 at all other locations.
Pelican Pete's charged $6.25
in Englewood.


'At $10 a round, that de-
feats the purpose of a family
entertainment center be-
cause families couldn't afford
to come," Buda said.
Buda has signed a deal in
SanAntonio to open a Pelican
Pete's Playland within the
next month. His parents will
stay in the area and remain
retired, Buda said.
At the Rialto, regular cus-
tomers were sad to hear the
strip mall may eventually be
torn down.
SSome were worried about
where the restaurants and
stores would relocate, while
others were afraid of what will
replace the mall that's been a
staple of Venice island since
the 1960s.
"What would bother me is
to see this be tor down and
condos go up," said Fran
Vernamonti, a volunteer at
the SunCoast Humane So-
ciety thrift store. "I'm so tired
of seeing condos go up all
over the place."

DELAYED from page 4A
while the post office investi-
gates whether the designed
facility can accommodate
this new equipment."
The new post office site is
on Jacaranda between U.S. 41
and State Road 776 across
from the Venetia develop-
ment. The post offices pur-
chased the land from Taylor
Ranch several years ago.
Funding is already in place,
according to county commis-
sioner Shannon Staub, who
lives in the Jacaranda area.
"The architect completed
the design and has shared it
with our permitting staff,"
Staub said.
"It looked like things were
moving along fine with the
budgeted funds encumbered.
Then we were told that the
facility is on hold because
they don't know if the design
needs to be changed," Staub
said.
Under review
In the works for almost
seven years, the South Venice
post office has been one of
the residents' top 10 priorities
during the formation of their.
community plan.
Though the U.S. Postal


Service issued a request for
proposal for property on
which to build back on Nov.
30, 1998, and purchased the
property from Taylor Ranch
Limited on April 5, 2000, the
facility fell victim to a con-
struction freeze.
The freeze predated Sept.
11, 2001, but the events of
that day made funds even
tighter, putting the South
Venice facility on indefinite
hold.
A few months later U.S.
Postal Service spokesman
Gary Sawtelle told the Gon-
dolier Sun, "We have no
money. The freeze still exists
on all construction across the
country."
He placed blame "partially
on Sept. 11 and partially on
the anthrax scare attacks"
that followed it.
Funding was ultimately
authorized.
"We're investing a lot of
money," Harrington said. "We
don't want to find down the
road, when state of the art
developments bring us some-
where else, that we have to
reconfigure the buildings."

Indians mission


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Last year, the Venice High
football team had to worry
about stopping a big, strong,
quick running back in Mike
Ford.
Ford rushed for 212 yards
and two touchdowns as the
Sailors rolled.
The challenge is a little
different this year.
While Sarasota still boasts
a potent running attack, it is
not Ford doing damage. He
has graduated and is at a
military prep school getting
his academic act together so
he can play at Alabama next
fall.
The new problem for the
Venice defense is senior scat
back Antwan Graham, a con-
verted defensive back who
has been giving folks fits.


Ask Durant, which was
ripped by Graham for 313
yards and five TDs in a 48-19
loss to the
Sailors last
week. Ce
On the sea-
son, Graham
already has :
more. than
1,000 rushing
yards and has
tallied 14
touchdowns. Coleman
"I'd guess
he's 5-7," Venice coach Nick
Coleman said. "He's quick as
heck. But he's also a hard
runner. He's their go-to guy.
We can't let him beat us. We
have to hit him."
Venice did a good job of
hitting Manatee's top runner
last week, as they held Chris
McNear to just 50 yards.
It was mistakes doing in


the Indians.
A missed tackle on a side-
line pass play, a kickoff re-
turn for a touchdown, and
several second half inter-
ceptions helped Manatee
overcome a deficit and win.
Venice is due to put it all
together.
"We need to play for four
quarters," Coleman said. "I
think we can do it. That's the
way I've felt all along."
Sarasota brings a 5-1
record into Friday night's
meeting at Ihrig Field. The
Sailors are currently ranked
No. 8 in Class 6A.
The two schools have had
one common opponent so
far. Manatee handed Sara-
sota its lone loss to the tune
of 40-19. Last week, Manatee
defeated Venice, 28-14.
Sarasota has other wea-
pons besides Graham. Cole-


Smith helping Tigers to Ws


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Former Venice High foot-
ball standout Tre Smith may
have lost his job as starting
running back, but he is still
seeing plenty of action for
the Auburn Tigers.
He played various roles
in last Saturday's Auburn's
blowout of South Carolina.
Most of his action came on
the punt return team.
Stifled by the Tiger de-
fense, South Carolina punted
the ball away eight times.
Smith was there to return
seven of them. His total
yardage was 74. That comes
out to 10.5 yards per return.
His long return was 23
yards.
From scrimmage, Smith
carried the ball three times
for a total of 20 yards. He
had gains of 7, 7 and 6 yards.
He also caught a pass.
Kenny Irons and Carl
Stevens were the starting
running backs Saturday.


Auburn (4-1) is off this
Saturday. Next action is Oct.
15 at Arkansas.

Smith's old backfield mate
in high school Ardell
Daniels is having another
good year with another team
flying high the Hampton
University Pirates.
Hampton improved to 5-0
by defeating Delaware. State
last Saturday. It was the
Pirates first home game of
the season.
Daniels rushed for 85
yards on 19 carries. On the
season, he is up to 363 yards
on 81 carries.
Hampton travels to
Gardner-Webb this Saturday.
The bulk of Hampton's home
schedule comes at the end
of the season.
* *
Matt Britton, who excelled
for the VHS state champi-
onship team in 2000, is a
senior starting linebacker at
Hillsdale College in Michigan.
He has played in five of


the Chargers' six games.
Britton, who is listed at 508,
200 and wears No. 38, is third
on the team in tackles.
In a 49-20 loss to North-
wood last week, Britton had
six solos and
three assisted
tackles.
SHillsdale,
which plays
in the Great
Lakes Athletic
Conference,
is 2-4. The
Chargers will.
play at home Britton
this Saturday
night against Grand Valley.

Vanderbilt saw its great
start tainted by a 17-15 upset:
loss to Middle Tennessee
State last Saturday. Vandy
had come into the game
4-0. Next up is LSU.
Former VHS standout
Brad Allen is a freshman
reserve tight end for the
Commodores. He also plays
special teams.


get Graham


man called Sailor quarter-
back Casey Kelly "very ath-
letic" and one who "makes
good decisions." Kelly has
thrown for more than 600
yards and five TDs this sea-
son.
Coleman is also impress-
ed with Sarasota's defense
on a whole. End Walter
Dublin is a big time D1
prospect.
Sarasota also possesses a
strong punter in Bryce Ogil-
vee, according to Coleman.
Sailor coach Bob Perkins,
who had done a good job
putting the SHS program
back on the map, expects a
fight from 1-5Venice.
"They're not your typical
1-5 team," he said. "They're
very good. They're balanced
on offense and defense.
They can turn out some long
drives."

STAFF REPORT


Laurel Nokomis School
captured the Sarasota County
Middle School Girls Volley-
ball Championships, winning
both of its matches in a tour-
nament played in front of
a vocal crowd Wednesday
night at Pine View School in
Osprey.
Laurel Nokomis defeated
host Pine View in a hotly
contested final. The Thunder
and Lightning won the first
game, 27-25. Pine View took
game two, 25-13, forcing a
third and deciding game.

title over the past three years
for Laurel Nokomis, which
also won in 2003.
Laurel Nokomis, coached
by Joe Brando and Tammy
Ingerick, finished the regular
season unbeaten with a
record of 7-0. That gave the
Thunder and Lightning the
top seed in the four-school
tournament field.
In the first round, Laurel
Nokomis dusted off Heron
Creek out of North Port, 25-
17, 25-12.
That advanced the Thun-

the service stripe, delivering


29 points. Jillian Allen was big
at the net and also played
strong defense. Kim Hough

Historic water




pact signed


BY GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER

The authority that oversees
the Peace River water supply
again made history Wednes-
day by signing a pact to ex-
pand the Peace River Water
Plant.
The four-member Peace
River Manasota Regional Wa-
ter Supply Authority board
voted unanimously to launch
the $123 million water-plant-
expansion project.
The deal, which will in-
crease the plant's capacity
from 18 million gallons per
day to 32.7 million, and its
reservoir from 600 million
gallons to 6 billion, had pre-
viously been approved by
each of the counties that are
members of the authority:
Charlotte, Sarasota, DeSoto
and Manatee.
North Port, which is a bulk
customer but not a voting
member, also endorsed the
deal and agreed to drop a
related lawsuit once the deal
is signed.
The authority was estab-
lished in the late 1980s to
interconnect water supplies
between the counties.

Why it matters
What's historic is that the
deal includes interlocal agree-
ments that give the board
more authority to develop
additional water sources for
the region.
One clause, for example,
gives the authority the ability
to develop new water sources
even without a customer de-
manding it or pledging to pay
for the project.
The board has also recently
given its staff a mandate to
pursue additional deals to
buy water or develop more
sources to stave off a tempo-
rary water shortage that is
projected to crop up. between
now and 2009. when the pro-
ject is to be completed.
The additional sources
include Punta Gorda's Shell
Creek and North Port's Myak-
kahatchee Creek.
The deal signed Wednes-
day also calls for each cus-
tomer to pay a common rate
for new water, so the higher
costs of developing new
sources are spread among all
the members.
Until now, each customer
paid a rate based on the por-
tion of past expansion pro-
jects that the customer had
approved.
"(Now), you're all in the
same boat," explained Doug
Manson, authority attorney.
"If the boat leaks, all of you
pay equally, based on the gal-
lons you're allocated."


"Before, we had five indi-
vidual contracts," said Cindy
Mick, utility director for North
Port. "Now, we have one con-
tract. It does address how
we're going to have expan-
sions in the future."

Fair and affordable
Pat Lehman, executive
director of the authority, said
the deal was "absolutely" his-
toric.
"The. fact this board reach-
ed this level of cooperation
without an impending crisis
is amazing," Lehman said.
He pointed out that new
and alternative water sup-
plies would be more costly
than tapping the Peace River
back in 1980, when the water
plant was built, or in the
1990s, when the plant was
first expanded.
"This agreement will en-
sure we can develop the sup-
plies we need in a fair ... and
affordable fashion," Lehman
said.
The water management
district pumped $22 million
into the authority in the early
1990s to help it acquire the
water plant.
The district is now poised
to grant the authority anoth-
er $44 million for the new
project.
The authority's deal pro-
vides enough assurances for
North Port to initiate a project
soon to require its residential
areas to convert from well
water to city water, Mick said.

Stickler
During the negotiations,
authority member Adam
Cummings, a Charlotte com-
missioner, proved himself a
stickler for resolving financial
issues that he felt made earl-
ier drafts of the deal unfair to
Charlotte County.
He worked to make sure
the county got some credit
for being the biggest inves-
tor in the authority's earlier,
cheaper plant expansions. As
a result, the cheaper costs are
still reflected in the county's
rate.
He also insisted that Sara-
sota County return a 2-mgd
allocation that Charlotte had
originally purchased but then
sold to Sarasota until 2010.
Cummings also insisted
Sarasota compensate Char-
lotte for- miscalculating its
past payments for the water.

'Harder than it
needed to be'
Wednesday, Cummings ex-
pressed a concern over a
component of the deal that
calls for the authority to store
enough water to provide up
to 2 million gallons per day


Everyone interested in the
future of education is invited
to attend "Dialogue to De-
cide," a community engage-
ment forum with the School
Board of Sarasota County.
The forums will be held
Oct. 10, 11, 24 and 25 at four
locations throughout the
county.
Citizens will participate in
open and candid discussions
with school board members
after Superintendent. Dr.
Gary Norris offers a short
presentation on NeXt Gen-
eration Learning, a vision for
Sarasota County schools.
"We hope people in the
communiLy will share their


thoughts about NeXt Gen-
eration Learning," said Dr.
Kathy Kleinlein, chair of the
school board and host of the
forums. "Citizens will be able
to talk freely about issues
such as spending priorities,
educational goals, the up-
coming referendum, parent
concerns and many other
issues."
All of the forums are 6:30-
8:30 p.m., at the following
school cafeterias:
Oct. 10 Sarasota
County Technical Institute

authority for $800,000. In ex-
change, the authority agreed
to be the sole provider for
that county's demands.
Just two years ago; DeSoto
County was poised to drop
out of the authority's regional
pipeline plan and develop its
own pipeline, because some
commissioners didn't trust
the authority.


"This is a great day," said
authority member Jerry Hill,
a DeSoto commissioner. "It's
been a long pull for us.
"But through all the strug-
gling times, we ended up with
a great plan for the region."

CITY NOTES


Finance candidate
filed for bankruptcy
Divorce not bad credit -
was the cause of the city's top
choice for finance director fil-
ing for bankruptcy a decade
ago, according to the search
firm hired that recommended
Bill Poling for the job.
The latest update, comes
on the heels of a local media
report that Poling, finance
director for the city of New
Smyrna Beach, filed for bank-
ruptcy in 1995. Colin Baen-
ziger & Associates stated that
Poling has an excellent credit
report today, and the agency
missed the bankruptcy be-
cause such matters drop off


credit reports after seven
years.
"Bill declared bankruptcy
in 1995 as
requirement
of his divorce
decree. It was
actual-
ly written into
the decree,"
wrote Colin
Baenziger in ,
his memo to
City Manager Poling
Marty Black.
'As a couple, their debt load
was. fine. As two separate
parties, however, the debt
level was too high to allow
for repayment of their then-

THE TRUTH ABOUT ROOT CANAL
Don't believe stories about root canal treatment which insinuate that it
is a grueling procedure for the patient. This can lead to unwarranted
apprehension. The truth is that it is an excellent valuable treatment
which can restore function and beauty in-situations where the only
alternative may be the removal of the tooth. With the techniques and
medications now being used, it can be a relatively easy experience,
free from pain and any significant post treatment problems. In fact, root
canal therapy is no more uncomfortable than having a complex filling.
It is successful therapy which can be accomplished with your total
comfort.
Because the internal vitality of the tooth is no longer present, many
people assume that the tooth is now a "foreign body", will become
brittle and may be rejected by the body. This is not the case because
there is nutrition and blood supplying membrane between the root and
bone which serves as a cushion and keeps thing "natural".

current outstanding debts
and to also go forward paying
alimony and child support.
Hence, declaring bankruptcy
was written into the decree."
The search firm was hired
in June for $15,000. The con-
tract came with a guarantee
that if any of their recom-
mendations is hired and
doesn't stay with the city for
two years, the company will
conduct another search at no
charge.
Venice has been without a
finance director since Aug. 9,
2004, when James Olson quit
without notice after only five
weeks on the job. It was later

"Sarasota County is proba-

"Our ISO (rating) is probably
one of the best in the nation."
The ISO is the Insurance

On the other hand, county
fire medics said the county
does not have the emergency

handle continued growth, let
alone a catastrophe like Ka-
trina.
Gorski said no county has
enough emergency staff to
handle a major event.
"Nobody has enough staff-

Fire medic Merv Kennel,

said emergency services is

county's comprehensive

"The county realizes we
have staffing issues," Kennel
said, "but they are not doing
anything about it."
A comprehensive plan is a
guideline for keeping up with
increased population and de-
mand for services.
The SPFPA has proposed
amendments for the comp

more fire medics and other
hard assets over a 10-year
period. The association
claims the plan would not
require a tax increase.

tection.
"If you lived within 5
miles of a paid fire station
and within 1,000 feet of a fire
hydrant, your property was
rated a three," Gorski said. "If
you lived within 5 miles of a
paid fire station and ... more
than 1,000 feet of a fire hy-
drant or no hydrant at all,
your rating was a 9."
Gorski also said the split
rating is because the county
has so many areas, especially
east of Interstate 75, that do
not have water.
He said a new 8B rating
will help the rural and other
areas of the community that
lacked fire hydrants by low-
ering their fire insurance pre-
mium rates.

Gorski said the board of
county commissioners has
been totally supportive of the
wants and needs of emer-

"We've never been denied
anything we've asked for,
and our budget has been in-
creased every year since

Home is where the cash is


BY DAN MEARNS
STAFF WRITER

Instant equity: Just add a
booming real estate market,
stir in modest interest rates,
cook up some fast cash and
make your dreams come true.
The steep rise in property
values in recent years has
provided homeowners a
ready source of extra money
in the form of home-equity
loans, and financial institu-
tions have taken up the cause
with enthusiasm.
Ed Mitchell, an 85-year-old
resident of Englewood, used
his home-equity loan to pay
off other debt.
"I paid off two big loans
and still have money left for
an emergency," he said. "I'mii
paying4ess- month in inter-
est now than I was on the two
loans, and at the end of the
year, the interest is tax de-
ductible."
Mitchell said his financial
adviser encouraged him to
obtain the loan.
"To my way of thinking, it's
a good deal," he said.
"It's the most economical
and efficient way to borrow
money," said Steven Vito of
SunTrust Bank of Southwest
Florida.

The basics
In simple terms, equity is
the difference between what
a property is worth and what
the owner owes against that
property. In other words, if
you owe $90,000 on a home
you bought for $100,000 five
years ago, and that home is
now worth $200,000, you
have $110,000 in equity.
How much you can borrow
against that equity depends
upon the lending institution
- it's usually around 80 per-
cent your credit record and
the type of home-equity loan
you select.
The two most common


types are lump-sum loans, in
which you receive the entire
amount of the loan at a fixed
interest rate, and home-equi-
ty lines of credit, called
HELOCs, which are like
revolving loans with variable
interest rates.
Some HELOCs are avail-
able as "interest-only" loans,
meaning you need only pay
interest on the loan each
month. And interest on both
types of home-equity loans,
like mortgage interest, is tax
deductible.
"An equity line of credit is a
prudent financial tool," Vito
said, "when it is used respon-
sibly."

Halfa trillion
Home-equity loans are not
new, but their popularity has
grown with the price of real
estate.
The Federal Deposit In-
surance Corporation esti-
mates thatAmericans are car-
rying nearly $534 billion in
home-equity debt, while
mortgage lender Freddie Mac
reported that home-equity
loans totaled $59 billion in
the first quarter of 2005.
Such figures may point to a
sweeping change in the way
Americans view home own-
ership.
"In the '60s and '70s, you
learned from your parents
that you've got to pay off your
home," said Ron Halstedd of
First Choice Lenders. "That
attitude is changing. People
are no longer keeping the
equity in their homes."
"The majority of our
clients are using these loans
as a tool to restructure exist-
ing debt," Vito said. "They
have lower payments, plus
the added benefit of a tax
deduction."
In addition to consolidat-
ing outstanding debt, home-
equity borrowers are using
the money to build swim-


ming pools, install new roofs,
pay off student loans, buy
other property or make major
purchases. Some use the
windfall for a combination of


tax deductible."
"In most cases, any use of
the (home-equity) money is
tax deductible," Vito said,
"but you should consult with


Press. Freddie Mac reported
that the nationwide average

gages rose to 5.91 percent, up

"You can use it for any-
thing you want to," said
Halstedd, who took out his
own loan to buy a vacant lot
he figures will increase in
value, "but I wouldn't use it as
money to set aside."
A savings account would
pay you only about 1 percent
interest, Halstedd explained,
while you would be paying 6
percent or so on the loan.
"With a probable interest
rate in the 6 percent range or
lower," Halstedd said, "a
home-equity loan is much
better than a credit card,
which can have rates in the
high teens or 20s. Plus, inter-

your tax adviser to make
sure."

Can the dream
become a nightmare?
If real-estate prices begin
dropping a circumstance
few are predicting the
downside to home-equity
loans will become readily
apparent. It will become
more difficult to repay the
loan and pay your mortgage
at the same time.
Interest and mortgage
rates also affect the home-
equity market.
Rates on 30-year mort-
gages jumped last week to the
highest level in five months,
according to The Associated


ous week.
Rising interest rates could
could make home-equity
borrowing costs rise and
reduce the attractiveness of
the loans.
The prime lending rate
right now is 6.75 percent, Vito
said. In the beginning of 2004,
it was 4 percent.
Banks often offer promo-
tions ito encourage borrow-
ing. An example would be
"prime minus 1.51 percent
for the first 90 days of the
loans," according to Vito.
"Rates have not had a huge
impact on us as yet," he said.
"The cost of money is still rel-,
atively cheap."

ing a home-equity loan to
seek out what he called a
"mainstream financial insti-
tution." He said banks can
provide "cheaper and more
flexible loans," with no clos-
ing costs.
"Other lenders may charge
points and a variety of fees,"
he said.

Two ways about it
Rebekah J. Fero, a certified
financial planner, said lend-
er's commissions and fees are
one reason to approach
home-equity loans cautious-
ly
"In certain circumstances I
will recommend them," she
said, "but as a general rule, I
don't recommend people go
out and get them."
Fero said the loans are
"kind of complex and de-
tailed" and should not be
pursued unless there is a
need and unless the borrower
itemizes his tax returns.
"I don't agree with doing it
to invest money in the mar-
ket," she said; "That's foolish.
"To do it just to have a line
of credit, if it doesn't make
sense, why do it?"
Fero said she does have
clients who are using home-
equity loans for home-im-
provement projects, but she
advised them to do so only
after a thorough examination
of their "whole financial pic-
ture."
"There's a right way to do:
things and a wrong way," she
said. "Each individual case is
different."
Vito and others, however,
see the loans as something
qualified homeowners should
strongly consider.
"It's a great product," Vito
said, "something we try and
educate all our customers
about."

OUR VIEW




A city of Venice moment of zen


f an appointed city board never holds a
meeting, does it still exist?
That's the obvious question regarding
the city of Venice's Citizen Tax Oversight
Committee and Citizen Oversight Com-,
mittee. The former, appointed in February
2004, has never convened, while the latter
hasn't had a session since December 2001.
Why should you care? Well, the tax over-
sight committee is the one that's supposed to
be keeping an eye on the use of the $10 mil-
lion in general obligation bonds city voters
approved in November 2003. Having a
watchdog board was an important and per-
suasive reason many voters said yes to rais-
ing their own taxes to pay for the bonds.
The numbers the city had for estimates on
the cost of the four projects the bonds were.to.
fund the purchase and conversion of the
Island Wastewater Treatment Plant into a pas-
sive park; renovation of Venice Community
Center; reconstruction of Venice Fishing Pier;


and the beach renourishment project were
kind of fuzzy Council member Rick Tacy pro-
posed creating a committee of citizens to make
sure that if the bonds raised more money than
was needed, the extra funds would be used to
pay the bonds off early and not be diverted to
some other use.
Almost two years later three of the four
projects the bond revenue was raised for are
essentially completed. They represent about
65 percent of the bond money.
And the oversight committee Maxine
Barritt, Jim Leis, Tim Macferrin, Jon Preiksat
and Bruce Rand has yet to meet.
Those same five people make up the "reg-
ular" oversight committee, whose job is to
monitor the spending of the city's 1-cent
sales tax revenue. It has been almost four
years since that board sat, though the law
requires an annual meeting.
Talk about an "oversight."
The members of the committees and the


residents of Venice deserve better.
The reason the boards haven't met sounds
a bit like something out of "Catch-22": A
meeting can be called by the chair, but there
isn't one, since each committee needs to
meet to elect one.
A meeting can also be called by the city's fi-
nance director, but we technically don't have
one of those either. Joanne Lounsbury has
been serving as the interim director since Mike
McPhail retired and his replacement left after
barely more than a few days on the job.
Mayor Dean Calamaras announced Mon-
day he has chosen William Poling to fill the
position, but that appointment has to be
approved by council because the finance
director is a constitutional officer.
Lounsbury has certainly had her hands
full, but this is a matter that should have
been given some priority. Having appointed
the tax oversight committee, however, no
one on council took on an oversight role to


make sure it actually had a meeting. And the
failure to see that the other oversight com-
mittee convened each year is at least as trou-
bling.
So the city is spending the bond revenue
and the sales-tax money without even token
supervision from two boards expressly creat-
ed for that purpose.
The fact that some of the estimated costs
of the bond projects came in below expecta-
tions suggests the bond issue could have
been for less than $10 million, a question the
tax oversight committee could have been
looking into in the last 18 months.
Now, we have no reason to think there's
been anything funny going on in the dis-
bursement of these dollars. But high on
Poling's To-Do List, if he gets the finance
director job, should be to call meetings of the
two committees.
The citizens of Venice are entitled to the
oversight they were promised.


Bodies: The



Exhibition


'!
4-


LORRAINE COCCARO
COLUMNIST


I had to see it for myself.
And so last week Richard
and I drove to the Museum of
Science and Industry in Tanm-
pa to view the "controversial"
Bodies: The Exhibition.
Twenty human bodies are
preserved with a process that
replaces human tissue with
silicone rubber. The male and
female bodies were obtained
legally. All died of natural
causes and were unclaimed.
Before it opened, the exhibit
hit the news with all sorts of
reservations and comments.
No, it is not "chilling." No it is
not "unsetling." It is nor
"ghoulish" or"voyeuristic."
Some may think this be-
fore seeing the exhibits but
not while they are there.
On entering, the tone is set:
informative. One sign ex-
plains that the body has 200
kinds of cells. They make up a
total of about 75 trillion cells
in each of us. Another sign
explains that our 100 joints
enable us to have remarkable
mobility no wonder our
gymnasts and athletes can
perform such feats. A third
explains that some 2 million
red blood cells are made each
second.
And so it goes through the
nine rooms of exhibits where
the bodies and 260 organs
and partial-body specimens
are on display to explain the
skeletal, muscular, respirato-
ry and other systems of the
body.
The whole exhibit encour-
ages healthy lifestyle choices.
When I viewed the black,
cancer-stricken lungs of smok-
ers, it made me very glad that I
gave up smoking in my 20s.
The fetus room showed the
progression of the develop-
ment of a fetus. Looking so
tiny and vulnerable, it is easy
to understand how cigarettes,
alcohol and drugs can so
damage its development. The
cirrhotic liver in another
room showed alcohol misuse
at the adult stage.
Over and over again I
heard, "Amazing," "Wow," "In-
credible." One nursing stu--
dent blurted, "Oh, my gosh"
three times as she circled the
case showing an aneurysm
and results of a stroke.


This exhibit helps fill a def-
inite gap in the general pub-
lic's understanding of the
body. The nursing students
could finally see so graphical-
ly right in front of them what
they had been reading about
in their text books.
But, perhaps more impor-
tant, mothers, fathers and
children can now better
understand the inner work-
ings of their own bodies.
Because the exhibit is such
an excellent learning tool, it is
difficult to understand why
the Florida Anatomical Board
voted 4-2 against the exhibit
in Tampa. Fortunately, it did-
n't seek to enforce its, deci-
sion. Criticism from religious
officials didn't stop it either.
At one time there were no
autopsies and dissection was
against the law. How much
we have learned from these
tools since then.
Art Caplan, a bioethics
professor at the University of
,Pennsylvania, thought Body
Worlds, a similar exhibit, was
powerful educational tool.
Body Worlds, which pre-
miered in Tokyo 10 years ago,
and since has been seen by
more than 17 million people
in 21 cities around the world,
is currently showing in Tor-
onto and Philadelphia. MOSI
is only helping us catch up to
the rest of the world.
Before they left, many peo-
ple wrote in the notebooks
made available for comment.
The five comments below
were on the very first and sec-
ond pages that I happened to
open.
Bonnie wrote, "I'm defi-
nitely going to treat my body
better! Very, very informa-
tive."
"The human body truly is
amazing and, probably, the
most efficient machine ever
evolutionized." Felix L.
"The media has done a dis-
service to this exhibit. What a
wonderful opportunity our
community has. EXCEL-
LENT!" Gail R.
"This is a neat exhibit. I
had no idea that bodies con-
sist of so much." Kelly Daine,
PPHS.
j"I'm glad I'm not them."
Mike G., PPHS.
Me too, Mike. But that
brings up my only criticism of
the exhibit.
I wish MOSI had made
available forms to donate our
body parts to people who are
waiting for transplants, and
forms to give our bodies to
science. What better way is
there to: xtend the reach of
the exhibit?

Bird flu related to
how animals are raised

Editor:
Public health officials are
concerned that the avian flu,
or "bird flu," could easily
become a serious threat to
human health worldwide.
With strains of the virus
found in humans, there has
been growing concern among
health officials about the pos-,
sibility of a pandemic.
The avian flu virus is
spread by chickens, ducks
and other birds. Intensive
confinement and overcrowd-
ing of birds and other animals
raised for fdod leads to conta-
minated air, build-up of feces,
immune-system breakdown
and disease.
As long as farming prac-
tices in which animals are


subjected to path
conditions remain
diseases will like
flourish, mutate
species barriers. Th
nate result will be
suffering by ani

In the interest of
full disclosure...
Editor:
.In your Sunday edition's
Letters From Our Readers, a
letter from leffery A. Boone
appeared. In it he ridiculed Ed
Martin's guest column and
stated, "In fairness, he (Mr.


Martin) should inform read-
ers he wasn't at the council
meeting."
Boone being s6 concerned
with fairness, I am a bit sur-
prised that in none of his own
letters to the Gondolier Sun
(two have appeared just
recently) does Jeffery A.
Boone mention that he is the
lawyer representing Mike
Miller's Waterford Properties,
as well as other past and pre-
sent developers requesting
zoning changes before city
council.
Jeffery A. Boone is a resi-
dent ofVenice, so he has every
right to have an opinion. But
for the benefit of your readers
it should be made crystal
clear that Jeffery A. Boone
might have other motivation
in discrediting Mr. Martin and
trying to sway public opinion.
Closing all of these deals
for his developer clients adds
money to the JefferyA. Boone
estate. Other concerned resi-
dents of Venice, like Ed
Martin, have to live with the
outcome without the payday
Mr. Boone receives.
Given Jeffery A. Boone has
a monetary interest in the
outcome of the subjects he
writes letters to the editor
about, I would like to suggest
the Gondolier Sun print a dis-
claimer under his name on
any of his future letters on this
subject just in fairness, of
course.

LET 'EM HAVE M SHOULD THE CITY OF VENICE BE MORE AGGRESSIVE IN ANNEXING PROPER-
TY TO KEEP FROM BECOMING UNABLE TO GROW IN THE FUTURE? CALL US AT 207-1111.

City failed to expand its borders


Wrong. Ninety-eight percent of the people in South Sarasota
County assume that the city of Venice controls zoning and
development in South Sarasota County. They are 98 percent
wrong. Just as Bush, Clinton and Bush failed to control our
national borders, the Venice mayor and council have turned
their backs on trying to protect our borders in guiding the
growth of South County. Most people don't realize that North
Port now starts just a little way past Wal-Mart on 41. North Port
is pro-growth on steroids. They want the new tax revenue so
they can fix their dilapidated infrastructure that they have sore-
ly neglected. And guess what? When they annexed the old
Taylor Ranch, North Port, not Venice, became a college town.
The MCC campus will expand in the years ahead to be a major
institution, and North Port will get all the benefits. Most of the
other large tracts have been permitted by the county, and
again, Venice loses out on most of the tax base, and the oppor-
tunity to guide the development through good zoning.


Not certain. Considering
the effect of rising gasoline
prices, and other things on
family budgets, the renewal of
the school-tax referendum
may not be as certain as some
have believed. I hope that the
school board is doing some
contingency planning on this
possibility other than count-
ing on frightening the citizen-
ry at the last minute, hoping
to make this referendum pass.
Check spelling. I'm starting
to get very upset by your
spelling errors. In your finish-
ing touches, you spelled Ven-
ice wrong in Venice Beach.
I've also noticed a lot of other
errors, as well as my own
name for my son's birthday
and missing names. If you can
please let your spell checker
look at every word that is
typed, that would be great.
Why former? After reading
the editorial by Mr. Greg
Shanika, it is noted that he is a
former member of the Venice
Planning Commission. His
article indicates an exception-
al degree of understanding
that makes me question why
he is a former member and
not an active member of this
committee.
EDITOR'S NOTE: As we report-
ed at the time, Shanika was not
reappointed to the commission
when his term expired. Former city
council member Jim Myers re-
placed him.
Junk lot. I'm calling con-
cerning a private property lot
near the corer ofAlbee Farm
Road and Lucaya. I under-
stand from the zoning offi-
cials that you can do anything
you want with your property.
This property has turned into
a public parking lot for junk.
There are some RVs there that
are quite nice, but they're
parked at random. There's
trucks, cars, trash, wood, old
cages and animal cages. Some
of the trucks don't even have
wheels and have been aban-
doned there. My question is,
what if this trash ever takes
flight in a hurricane? We live
across the street. There are 80
seniors living in our building
and we look at this and it kind
of makes you worry. Some-
times there's traffic in and out,
day and night. I have recently
called the zoning board again,
and they say there's nothing
they can do about it because
it's private property.
Right on. I've just read Greg
Shanika's comments in to-
day's newspaper, need for
safeguards in the CMU dis-
trict and I think he's right on.


I've known Greg for 19 years
and I think the city fathers
should listen to Greg. He's a
knowledgeable man. He and I
have had our differences in
the past, but I respect his
comments and I think every-
body should read this article
twice and know what he's say-
ing.
Pollution. Fisherman's
Wharf should put in boat
storage. With so much pollu-
tion in the gulf, nobody will
want to swim or boat or fish;
they can't. They'll be storing
their boats.
Tall buildings. Why does
this column only print com-
ments from those opposed to
taller buildings? Is it because
the newspaper does not want
to see its Gondolier Sun build-
ing dwarfed by some better-
looking and more impressive
structures nearby? I called
this column twice in the last
three weeks voicing my sup-
port for Mike Miller's plan.
I've yet to see either comment
printed and probably won't
see this comment either.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Due to the
volume of calls to the Let'em Have
It line, calls may not appear for sev-
eral issues, assuming they meet
the standards set forth at the bot-
tom of the column.
America haters. Do you
subconsciously hate Amer-
ica? Do you want to see wide-
spread unemployment? Do
you want America to suffer a
deep depression? Do you
want the American dollar to
be worthless in the world
market? Do you want Amer-
ica to fail as a free country and


a foreign people and country
to assume power? Are you do-
ing what you can to help de-
stroy America? Do you drive a
foreign car? If you do, then the
answer is yes to all of the
above.
Not invited. Here's a news
flash for you. The majority of
the Venice residents do not
belong to the Venice Yacht
Club, so they were not invited
to the private party they had
on Labor Day. Why your pa-
per chose to dedicate the en-
tire Around Town page to a
party most of us were not
even allowed to attend is
beyond me. The vast majority
of your readers would like to
know about the things that
went on in town that we were
all invited to.
Inaccurate figures. When
you gave the city budget fig-
ures in the paper today, I don't
understand why you don't
give the correct figures. City
hall counts $20 million twice,
and they've been doing this
for many years. So just knock
$20 million off that, put it in
the paper, and we'll have an
accurate figure of what it costs
to run this city.
Canyon effect. Going past
our four-story medical center,
which is close to the street, I
think 35 feet is tall enough for
all buildings on the island of
Venice. Anything more than
that is just going to have a
canyon effect and block our
views of the sky.
A new paper. I'm appalled
by the Gondolier Sun today.
This is Wednesday. The slant
that it took against the CMU
was atrocious. I am going to
contact Mike Miller and have
him invest in a newspaper. This
ridiculous newspaper is more
like the Pravda of Russia.
Great guide. Thanks for a
great TV guide. It's nicely pre-
sented. The color-coding of
the events is very helpful. It
took a little time catching on,
but it's very doable! The size is
nice, and if you ever consider
increasing the size of the
guide, please don't make it as
large as the Herald's guide,
and keep the color-coding. I
throw the Herald guide away
unused. It's too large.


Some suggestions for mixed-use zoning


ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST


Several opinion pieces fav-
oring the mixed-use plan are,
it seems to me, red herrings.
They make the case that
there is resistance from peo-
ple, who in one article were
denigrated as "old-thinking,
backward-looking people."
The other articles were not
derogatory toward those they
perceive to be opponents,
they simply missed the point.
The point is height, not
mixed use. That is what peo-
ple in countless local plan-
ning meetings have articulat-
ed. They do not want more
tall buildings., They like the
scale of Venice and want to
preserve it.
About 2,000 people peti-
tioned council to keep
heights at 35 feet. All back-
ward lookers?,
Here are some suggestions
for developing the zoning dis-
trict for mixed use.
1. Limit the area for the
CMU to areas that should be
specified now: for example,
the Miller plot, the area east of
the Intracoastal to U.S. 41,
and part, if not all of Business
41. The area from the Rialto
Shopping Center to Venice
Avenue might be a reasonable
start, but a case can be made
for limiting height all the way
to the Circus Bridge. This
could also be accomplished
by having a height overlay
district, as recently demon-
strated on West Venice Ave-
nue.
Council can always identi-
fy CMU areas in the future.
The language in the city's pro-
posed plan is so broad as to
be virtually all-encompass-
ing. It includes "activity cen-
ters for financial, commercial,
tourism, professional, cultur-


al and associated activities."
That would seem to include
just about every area of Ven-
ice except single-family resi-
dential.
City Planning Director
Tom Slaughter tells me gener-
al zoning criteria could be
used to restrict development
to appropriate areas (in the
opinion of planning commis-
sion and council). Why open
the city to proposals from vir-
tually everywhere?
2. Limit height to 35 feet
with 10 feet conditional us-
age. Maintain the 35-foot
limit along East Venice Ave-
nue, allowing conditional use
if stepped back from a two-
story first level. That will ex-
tend the look and feel of the
current downtown to the east.
A number of lovely com-
munities in Florida, Cali-
fornia and elsewhere have
four-story limits about 45
feet. They are attractive and
have thriving business dis-
tricts, so our business people
do not need to support "tall"
to be successful.
3. Redesign and reduce the
size of allowable signs. Some
examples that seem too intru-
sive include: "one hotel,
motel/condo sign per street
frontage" that could be 8 feet
high and 31 feet long, (250
square feet is allowed, with an
8-foot maximum height). If
the Miller project, for exam-
ple, faced two streets, there
could be two huge signs.
Further, illuminated signs are
allowed, so this large sign
could be visible over a good
bit of Venice, surely eliciting
complaints.
A sign or canopy sign of 4
to 6 square feet that projects
over the right of way could
begin 8 feet from the ground
with a maximum height of 20
feet. Why should a row of
shops along East Venice Ave-
nue have such signs?
Ideally, this zone should be
a model for discreet signs. In
another questionable deci-
sion, following current prac-
tice, neon signs in windows
are allowed.
4. In answer to a potential
question about whether 45
feet would rule out Water tow-
ers, church steeples or anoth-


er floor on the hospital if
needed, the answer is to craft
a provision allowing council
to approve such projects on
an individual basis. This
would apply a common sense
standard to government
structures, such as a water
tower, or to churches and
facilities that serve a clear
civic need, not primarily a
commercial goal.
5. Incorporate changes in
set backs, massing and such
as suggested in Greg Shanika's
recent column in the Gon-
dolier Sun. To save space I will
not repeat them, but they are
right on target.
Identifying the areas I have
suggested for a limited height
CMU could save the city a lot
of headaches. Under current
zoning buildings up to 105
feet tall are possible in some
areas on Business 41 and East
Venice Avenue.
In the area east of the
Intracoastal, buildings in the
Industrial Light Warehousing,
(Transitional), district are
limited to 45 feet, but with a
40 foot exception or condi-
tional use.
The Publix and Rialto
shopping centers are in areas
that would allow up to 105
feet if council approved.
Already people are propos-
ing 75-80 foot buildings along
Business 41. The council has
the opportunity to limit this
development by adopting
uniform height standards in
the CMU and elsewhere.
Council should have a goal
of "preserving" the charm of
Venice and move growth for-
ward carefully. They will not
be able to turn down taller
building applying for condi-
tional use height, because
they don't like them, they will
need good reasons.

New Starbucks getting



on the espresso track


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


Starbucks is very .enthusi-
astic to open in Venice, ac-
cording to Tom Sivertsen, a
CICM commercial real estate
broker.
Sivertsen owns the former
Texaco Station at the junction
of Center Road and U.S. 41
Bypass where the first Star-
bucks in Venice is to be built.
Within the next three
weeks he is submitting to
Sarasota County the final site
plans.
His intentions are by mid-
November to start tearing
down the canopy, office, store
and car wash on the site.
With a total space of 4,225
square feet available, the
plans call for two separate
buildings to be linked. Siver-
tsen confirmed Starbucks is


taking 1,800 square feet and
will have a drive-through
lane.
"Unfortunately, it isneces-
sary to use up a lot of space to
accommodate the drive-
through as there is a require-
ment to have a second escape
lane, meaning two lanes
around the building," said
Sivertsen.
Construction will take
around seven months with an
estimated opening around,
July 1.
For the second building, of
2,425 square feet, ie does not
have anything signed up at
the moment, but assumes it
will probably be a cell phone
company or possibly a sub
shop.
The overall cost of the pro-
ject willbe $1.5 million. A spe-
cialist company in Tampa
that has recently designed


five Starbucks locations in
that city is drawing up the
plans for the Venice location.
Starbucks' building is
planned to be set about 30
*feet north of the existing
canopy with entrances to the
drive-through from Center
Road and the bypass, but one
exit south to the bypass.
There will be a patio with
tables, chairs and umbrellas.
Parking will be on the north-
west side incorporating the
drive-through lane, which.
will circle the building. The
second building will be on the
south end of the lot bordering
the Venice Marketplace park-
ing lot.
Unofficial estimates of
42,000 vehicles using this
intersection daily make it one
of the most opportune loca-
tions for national companies
desiring to come into Venice.


Big golf store coming to Venice


ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS


A new 7,000-square-foot
golf store is planned for
Galleria Plaza on Tamiami
Trail in SouthVenice.
Opening next March or
April will be Pro Golf Dis-
count, in part of the former
Gold's Gym near the new
Galleria Stadium 12 movie
theater. It will be the fourth
store for Steve Meyer, who
has a small 4,000-square-foot
store opposite Westfield Sara-
sota Square mall; a 12,000-
square-foot store on Bee
Ridge at Tuttle in Sarasota;
and a 7,000-square-foot store
in Bradenton.
Meyer, who retired after 20
years in computer software in
1986, wanted a little some-
thing to do.
Admitting he likes every-
thing to do with golf, he
decided to open a store and is
undertaking a major expan-
sion in the state.
"The Venice store will have
everything to do with golf,
including a 10-feet-square
full-swing simulator," com-
mented Meyer.
It will also have a big 30
foot by 15 foot green and a
putting room. He will be hir-
ing five to seven people to
operate the Venice store.
Patrick Jaehne, Waterford
leasing agent, confirmed per-


mits for demolition and im-
provements to the premises
were being sought and it is
hoped internal construction
on the new store would begin
this November or December.

Downtown restaurant
opening evenings
Michael and Marcia
Meerman have big plans to
expand James Place restau-
rant, 117 W Venice Ave.,

With Michael's 25 years
experience in corporate.
America working with food
service and equipment com-
panies and Marcia's cooking
knowledge, they are introduc-
ing a freshening update.


The first thing they did was
to amend the name to James
Place Island Grill, exemplify-
ing the kitchen is a grill.
"Seven guys have torn out
carpets and tiles to restore the
original terrazzo floors of this
unique 50-year-old property,"
commented Meerman.
To avoid interrupting busi-
ness, refurbishing took place
when the restaurant closed
lunchtime on Monday. The
crew worked 24/7 until open-
ing on Wednesday morning.
"The island needs more
places to enjoy a nice evening
out, so starting the second
week in October we.will be to
open for dinner Thursdays to
Saturdays" said Meerman.
He has already recruited
new professionally trained
waitstaff and for dinner will
introduce a more European
continental cuisine.

A new spin


on


Venice


BY LAURA FEHL
STAFF WRITER

Drivers and pedestrians
may have noticed a new vehi-
cle cruising the trail ways and
sidewalks ofVenice recently.
These mysterious-looking
scooters are Segway Human
Transporters, high-tech trans-
portation devices that self-
balance on two wheels and
run on a rechargeable battery.
Segway Safaris of Venice
Inc., founded by Jeff and
Stephanie Fisher of Venice,
now provides the opportunity
for riders to experience the
Segway's unique mode of
transportation while taking a
tour around town.
"Most of it was my hus-
band's idea," said Stephanie
Fisher.
Jeff Fisher, of Fisher Bio-
medical, became friends with
Ken Levine, a local Segway
dealer, which first got him
thinking about a tour in
Venice.
"We knew there was a Seg-
way tour in Sarasota and that
people loved it," said Steph-
anie Fisher. "We thought it
would be great to have one
here because there are also a
lot of historical things to look
at in Venice."
Before starting the busi-
ness, the Fishers met with
members of the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce and
Venice Area Beautification to
Sget their feedback.
Jeff Fisher, who had been
involved with the chamber
for years, wanted to bring
more business and tourism
into the area.
Both the chamber andVAB
thought the Segway tours,
were a great idea.
VAB Vice President Monty
Andrews said the Segways are
a nice, leisurely form of trans-
portation.
"What a better way to see
downtown (Venice)," incom-
ing VAB President Fred Hind
remarked during a recent
tour.
The balancing act
Segway Safaris offers two
different tour routes in Ven-
ice. Both use the Venetian
Waterway Trail.
The north route travels
through the downtown area
and is designed for those who'
want to see the historical
sights of Venice.
"It's more of a tourist
route," said Fisher.
The tour meets at the
Venetian Waterway parking
lot behind the chamber of
commerce building.
There, tour-takers practice


riding the Segways before hit-
ting the trail.
Although it may seem hard
to believe by looking at them,
anyone can quickly learn to
ride the two-wheeled Seg-
ways.
The only awkward mo-
ment is when the rider steps
onto the Segway for the very
fist time.
It may feel unnatural, as
though you're going to fall
over. But, through high tech-
nology, the transporter self-
balances within a few sec-
onds.
The Segways, which run
on a rechargeable battery and
travel at speeds up to 12 mph.
are easily maneuvered. For-
ward or backward motion is
not required to turn the Seg-
way, which can make a 360-
degree rotation with a slight
turn of a control on the han-
dlebars.
Riders must also learn how
to make the Segway move for-
ward and backward. This is
controlled by the rider's
movement.
To move forward, the rider
simply leans slightly forward
on his or her toes. Putting
pressure on' one's heels will
stop the vehicle, and increas-
ing that pressure will make it
go in reverse.
"It's all in the heels and
toes," Stephanie Fisher said as
she instructed riders on a
recent tour.
Out for a spin
Once everyone has the
hang of it, the tour heads
north on the waterway trail to
the Venice Avenue Bridge.
From there, it heads over to
downtownVenice.
When the secon- f trail
that goes under the Hatchett
Creek Bridge is completed.
the tour will take that route.
Unfortunately, that may not
be for another 18 months,
according to Andrews.
Until then, the tour uses
Tampa Avenue to cross U.S.
41 Business into the down-
town area.
Along the way, the tour
guide provides the riders with
information about the histor-
ical sights of Venice.
At about the mid-point of
the tour, riders will stop at
Centennial Park for a break
before continuing on.
The tour eventually circles
around and heads back to the
starting point.
Alternately, tour-takers can
choose the south route. This
follows the south portion of
the waterway trail and has
more of a nature focus.
"You can see bald eagles

and gopher tortoise burrows
right along the trail," said
Andrews. "There are five
scrub jay families and also
bobcats."
Tours and more
Stephanie Fisher said that
when they started the tours,
they knew it would be more
of a seasonal business.
"During the off-time we
would like to offer our Seg-
ways to corporations or clubs
that are still in the area," she
said.
Since the business is a


mobile unit, it can bring the
Segways to expos or company
picnics for something fun
and different for event-goers
to experience.
Segway Safaris will also be
participating in the Sun Fiesta
and will have an information
booth where people can try
out the Segways.
So far, feedback, has been
very positive.
"The Segways are great -
they give you a lot of freedom
to look around," said Hind.
"We hope to sponsor a lot of
things like this."


Hind and Andrews were
impressed by the Segways as
a transportation alternative.
Those who can't walk far or
ride bikes can take advantage
of the waterway trail and see
the sights of Venice.
"When I have company in
town and we want to do
something adventurous we
usually ship out to Sarasota or
Tampa," said Nokomis resi-
dent Gretchen Miscik on a
recent tour.
"I'm excited. I think this is a
step in the right direction for
Venice," she said.


Take the tour
Tours are run daily from
9:30 to 11:30 a.m.
SThe cost is $59.95 per per-
son, and group rates are avail-
able.
Riders must be 12 years old

and a snack are provided.

These Segway riders have caught their balance.

Study released on overweight high schoolers


STAFF REPORT
The Florida Department
of Health announced the
results of a study on Over-
weight and Related Risk
Factors among.Florida High
School youth show that
there was a 28.6 percent
increase in the percentage
of high school students
who were overweight from
9.1 percent in 2000 to 11.7
percent in 2003.
"Obesity and being over-
weight has become an alarm-
ing epidemic among our
adolescents and being over-
weight increases an individ-
ual's risk for serious chronic
diseases," DOH Secretary
John O. Agwunobi, M.D.,
M.B.A., M.PH., said. "To com-
bat this alarming health is-
sue of obesity, the Depart-
ment has committed to edu-
cating our youth by promot-
ing healthy lifestyles and
suggesting healthy behaviors,
such as daily exercise and a
nutritious diet."
According to the 2003
Youth Risk Behavior Survey
(YRBS), being overweight
was more prevalent among


male students (16.5 percent)
than among female students
(8.1 percent). There was no
significant difference in the
prevalence of being over-
weight among three racial/
ethnic groups. Among non-
Hispanic White students,
there was a dramatic increase
of 45.6 percent in the preva-
lence of being overweight
between 2002 and 2003.
This report used self-reported
data from the YRBS and the
Florida Youth Tobacco Survey
.(FYTS). Data for the study
was collected from students
in grades 9-12.
Healthy People 2010, a
comprehensive, nationwide
health promotion and dis-
ease prevention agenda, was
used as a guideline in both
of DOH's youth surveys.
Healthy People 2010 recom-
mends adolescents to par-
ticipate in vigorous activity
for at least 20 minutes a day
on three or more days per
week. Approximately 61 per-
cent of Florida high school
students met this goal in
2003.
Another Healthy People
2010 objective is for 75 per-


cent of children and ado-
lescents to watch no more
than two hours of TV a day,
but only 57.3 percent of
Florida high school stud-
ents achieved this objective.
The Governor's Task Force
on the Obesity Epidemic
recommended that parents
and caregivers seek out and
provide options other than
television viewing or com-
puter use for children after
school.
Unhealthy lifestyles that
include physical inactivity
and poor nutrition increase
the risk of overweight and
obesity, which significantly
increases the risk for chronic
diseases, including some
cancers, high blood pressure,
heart disease, arthritis and
diabetes.
In the fall of 2003, Gov-
ernpr Jeb Bush established
the Governor's Task Force on
the Obesity Epidemic to
address the epidemic of
obesity in Florida. Many of
the 22 recommendations
that were developed focused
on youth. DOH is imple-
menting initiatives that focus
on promoting healthy life-


styles among Florida's youth.
The Secretary's Obesity Sum-
mits provided solutions for
local communities, schools,
parents and healthcare to
support and reinforce
healthy lifestyle practices.
Additionally, DOH has pro-
moted "Step Up, Florida!" a
statewide initiative intended
to focus specifically on physi-
cal activity. During the 2005
"Step Up, Florida!" event,
more than 50,000 school-age
youth participated.
Launched by the U.S.
Department of Health and
Human Services in January
2000, Healthy People 2010
contains 467 objectives de-
signed to serve as a road map
for improving the health of all
people in the United States
during the first decade of the
21st century. For more infor-
mation on obesity, visit the
DOH Web site at doh.state.

Prevention from the drop
box. For the results of this
study and other FYTS and
YRBS studies, visit the DOH

JEREMY ROTTGEN
WELL-BEING EDITOR
OK, I have to finally con-
fess.
Your Well-Being editor
doesn't always walk the
straight and narrow as far as
exercise and nutrition is
concerned.
I started a new job that
consists mostly of sitting,
with the occasional hustle for
a photo or story. Otherwise
my job is sedentary ... much
like now while I'm a writing
this column.
I'm also not looking for-,
ward to losing weight when I
get older. I've heard it's easier-
when you're younger. Both
my mother and my girlfriend
have told me losing weight


now will help me live longer. I
don't want to have heart
surgery at 31. I also don't want
to be too tired to run around
with children, if and when I
have them.
I've done a few things that I
consider to be important:
1. I've sworn off fast food
It's just too easy and cheap
to go for the drive through. Of
course I miss it the conve-
nience, cholesterol and fats.
I've left a rose at the Checkers
near my apartment.
It really wasn't hard to
swear it off once I realized
what fast food was doing to
me and it doesn't take a
genius to know that burgers,
fries and milkshakes are not
good for you.
2. Drink water
Soda is probably the worst
thing you can drink next to
grain liquor. I never realized
just how much sugar is in one
can. Even sports drinks have
sugar in them. I remember
my Grandpa saying "You'll be
just as thirsty later," to people
chugging Mountain Dew in
Mason, WV He was right; if


,only the Water out of his well
tasted as good as a Dr. Pepper.
I do like soda. Especially
the cherry flavored ones.
Water seems to be the only
and best alternative espe-
cially for those choosing to
lose weight. That is one cut of
calories that will pay off soon-
er than some.
3. I've joined a gym
My legs are still sore.
Most gyms will give you
three free sessions with a per-
sonal trainer when you join
up. My second session
involved a maneuver called a
"jack squat," which involved
an inclined machine.
I live on the third floor of
my apartment building. I dis-
covered the morning after that
going down the steps, not
going up them, was a chal-
lenge with sore quadriceps.
4.Wheygood
I think of them as meal
replacements. I was told to
eat at least six times a day and
to get 200 grams of protein
into my diet.
It's not that hard consider-
ing I found a protein bar with


24 grams of protein and whey
has about 20 grams of protein
per serving. Of course, whey
is not the most flavorful sub-
stance on Earth.
Eating a protein bar is like
biting into a Now or Later that
has softened only slightly
without the fruit flavor. They
have the density of anti-mat-
ter. I thought I was going to
lose a-tooth a couple of times.
If you have dentures, be
careful with these.
However, I did discover a
more tasty treat. Some of the
bars out there, while they may
not have as much protein
taste pretty close to a regular
candy bar. Fifteen grams of
protein is just as good. I can-
not stress how much reading
labels will influence your
buying habits at the grocery
store.
Only time will tell if all my
efforts will come to fruition.
I'm hoping, in total, to lose 50
pounds to start. So far, I've
lost about 4, but it fluctuates.
I'm going to have to push it
into second gear and really
start burning if I reallywant to
see results.

First Responder


Center to be studied


Bill Steen, a board member
of the South Venice Civic
Association, came up with a
good idea. At its meeting on
Oct. 3, the board of directors
approved the creation of a
special committee to study
the feasibility of using our
South Venice Community
Center as a "First Responder
Center."
As was witnessed by the
recent hurricanes, including
last year's Charley, citizens
within a community will
probably need to fend for
themselves for the first few
days after a disaster strikes.
There is a lag time between
the ability of the government
to address what action to take
to organize efficiently the
population affected.
Also, in anticipation of a
hurricane hitting near their
homes, many residents are
not sure whom to call or what
to do.
A First Responder Center
would serve to provide and
coordinate immediate multi-
local teams long before a hur-
ricane threatens our commu-
nity, and be of service in the
event it strikes us.
The center would be the
first gathering place for peo-
ple to come to if they are
afraid to stay in their homes
but have not been ordered to
evacuate. The center would
have trained volunteers to
communicate with emer-
gency management to assist


people in getting to designat-
ed shelters if need be.
The SVCA has already
joined in the CERT program
and has 14 graduates ready to
serve. That is the Community
Emergency Response Team, a
partnership between emer-
gency services and the people
they serve in our case the
residents in our subdivision.
They would be set up at the
First Responder Center to
handle threatening injuries,
disaster medical operations
(life-threatening injuries, as-
sessment, treatment and hy-
giene), light search and rescue
and disaster psychology.
The center could take the
calls for coordinating trans-
portation needs (buses,
scheduled routes), keep
everyone informed on hurri-
cane disaster preparedness,
and help keep everyone calm.
If successful, a permanent
office could be set up to pro-
vide first-responder service
on. a year-round basis. It
would be the place to dissem-
inate needed information.
If you are interested in par-
. ticipating in this effort, call
Bill at 497-3810.
This may very well develop
from the idea stage into a
countywide coordination
program among all home-
owner associations. It is well
worth researching.
Sign plan meeting
There will be a meeting at
6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 11, at
the South Venice Com-
munity Center, 720 Alligator
Drive, for those in South
County who would like to
participate in the design
process for our Community
Gateway Signage under the
Community Plan.

Habitat and NPHS working together


BY ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER


Bill Mousseau's students at
North Port High School have
no qualms about telling him
his classroom curriculum is
boring.
But then Mousseau's class
isn't one of the traditional
core academic courses such
as history, English or math.
He teaches Practical Con-
struction, an elective course,
to 15 Exceptional Student
Education, or ESE, students,
and they would rather have
the daily hands-on experi-
ence.
"They (students) can't wait
to get started in the field,"
Mousseau said.
Working in conjunction
with the Venice Area Habitat
for Humanity, which serves
the North Port area, the class
offers what Mousseau calls "a
crash course" in construction.
The course allows students
the chance to learn the build-
ing process from the ground
up.
Following eight weeks of
classroom work, students,
who must be at least 16
years old to take the class,
move into the field to help
Habitat for Humanity build
homes for local families in
need. The group plans to be
in the field by early Oc-
tober.
Once on the building site,
students learn a variety of
trades that range from electri-
cal, plumbing, framing, dry-
wall to roofing skills. They

level Friday at the school in Bill Mousseau's Practical Construction class. Both students have
worked on houses in the past and will begin construction with Habitat For Humanity later in
the year.


work alongside Habitat for
Humanity volunteers, many
of whom are retired profes-
sionals who are masters of
their craft.
The class offers students
who might not advance to
college, the chance to earn
valuable skills to help them
with a career later in life,
Mousseau said.
"It's a great experience for
them," Mousseau said. "If
they're not going on in school
they can learn a trade, or at
least get started in that direc-


tion. This area is growing so
much that construction
workers will always be need-
ed."
For those who do continue
with their education, Mous-
seau said, "it will give them
the knowledge to maybe
build their own house some-
day or the ability to do home
repairs on their own."
This is the third year
Practical Construction has
been offered at the high
school.
The upcoming Habitat for


Humanity home is on Sablon
Road in North Port.
It will be the third pro-
ject Mousseau's Practical
Construction class has as-
sisted with since its in-
ception.
So far Habitat for Hu-
manity has built more than 30
homes in the North Port-
Venice area.
"The kids are so excited,"
Mousseau said. "When they
see the family coming into a
house that they helped build,
they're very proud."

Back to school and the


quest for a meaningful life


My wife returned to teach-
ing in the classroom this year
after a 20-year hiatus from a
formal teaching setting. She
likes to describe her years of
home schooling as "teaching
across the dining room table."
However, the first couple
weeks of getting "dressed-up"
every day, not having to do
dishes and put away laundry
while quizzing the kids on
vocabulary was a pleasant
adjustment in academic fo-
cus. Nonetheless, she and I
recognize that there is more
to education than simply aca-
demic focus. School, in our
estimation, should provide
for focus on the whole person
and their place and purpose
in the world. Most home
school parents aren't content
with the student simply learn-
ing how to do math, but help-
ing the student understand
why and how math fits in to
the larger picture of life.
I was pleasantly surprised
when my junior high age boys
(who now "go to school" with
their mother) brought home


from Venice Christian School
as a reading assignment,
Edith Hamilton's "Myth-
ology." The assignment of 20
pages a night required a disci-
plined effort, but the rewards
of this exposure to mythology
are well worth it. A very obvi-
ous component of ancient
mythology is the question of
origins. Although the story of
Pandora and her infamous
box addressing the origin of
evil and sorrow in the world,
does not place women in the
finest light, it is clear that the
ancient Greeks and Romans
took the subject of human
origins seriously. They reflect-
ed on the questions, "Where
did we come from and where
are we headed?" No Greek or
Roman entertained the no-
tion that we evolved slowly
over millions of years from
primordial ooze. Though we
can surely question Hesiod's
accounting of human origin
in the mythological record,
ancient classical education
was more than fanciful story
telling. It entailed a quest for
what was noble in the human
experience. It involved the
pursuit of a life worth living.
Christian education also
embraces the pursuit of a
meaningful life. Foundational
to the biblical world-view of
the human story is the whole
question of origins. That
every educator operates from
some presuppositional com-
mitment in answer to this
question is undeniable. There
is no such thing as an unbi-
ased education. As Nancy


Pearcey has pointed out in
her recent work, "For the
materialist, the ultimate reali-
ty is matter, and everything is
reduced to material con-
stituents. For the pantheist,
the ultimate reality is a spiri-
tual force or substratum, and
the goal of meditation is to
reconnect with that spiritual
oneness. For the doctrinaire
Darwinist, biology is ultimate,
and everything, even religion
and morality, is reduced to a
product of Darwinian pro-
cesses. For the empiricist, all
knowledge is traceable ulti-
mately to sense data, and
anything not known by sen-
sation is unreal ... Every sys-
tem of thought begins with
some ultimate dimension of
creation the material, the
spiritual, the biological, the
empirical, or whatever. Some
aspect of created reality will
be absolutized or put forth as
the ground and source of
everything else." ("Total
Truth," Crossway Books,
2004, pg. 41) There is no such
thing as a neutral considera-
tion of the facts. This is why
many Christian people have
opted to take their children
out of public schools. They
cannot embrace the presup-
positions of a "secular" edu-
cational philosophy.
In addition, previously
cherished concepts such as
nobility, honor, loyalty, truth,
self-control and self-sacrifice
have been replaced in public
education by concepts such

Friday, Oct. 21 and 28 and
Nov. 4 and 11. Nov. 11, there
also will be a stained glass
window fabrication demon-
stration at 6 p.m. in the
gallery.
The works featured in this
show are all from the studios
of Louis Comfort Tiffany and
have not been shown in years
or, in some cases, have never
been displayed. Some of the
windows were designed for
the most elite homes of the
period. Four leaded-glass
door panels, circa 1905, for
example, were designed for
the NewYork home of August
Heckscher (1848-1941), one
of the nation's leading indus-
trialists and philanthropists.
They have not been on view
for six years. Also to be exhib-
ited is the seldom seen, three-
panel window, circa 1885,
from the Pennsylvania home
of steel magnate William Reis
and his descendants. It has
been extensively conserved
for this presentation. The
installation also will feature
Tiffany enamels, lamps, art
glass and pottery, represent-
ing not only Tiffany's aston-
ishing versatility in different
mediums, but also Hugh and


Jeannette McKean's compre-
hensive vision in building
their collection for the Morse.
The exhibit Secrets of Tif-
fany Glassmaking will explain
everything from the basic
ingredients used in making
glass to the design processes
used to create the famed
leaded-glass windows and
lamps. It will feature some of
the various tools used in
glassmaking as well as win-
dow fragments, glass frag-
ments, preliminary drawings
and a model for a window.
The Morse's Park Avenue
galleries opened July 4, 1995.
They were developed from
former bank and officebuild-
ings. The redesign linked two
buildings with a tower in a
simple modified Mediter-
ranean style meant to blend
with the surrounding city-
scape. Today, after an addi-
tional expansion to install the
Tiffany Chapel from the 1893
Chicago world's fair, the mu-
seum has more than 11,000
square feet of exhibition
space nearly three tines
the gallery space in its former
location on Welbourne Ave-
nue.
Jeannette Genius McKean
founded the museum for-
merly known as the Morse
Gallery of Art- on the Rollins
College campus in 1942. The
museum was relocated to
Welbourne Avenue in 1977,

Base Avenue has .

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

The developers of the
Brezza del Mare Condomin-
ium in Venice are changing
the face of Base Avenue on
the island ofVenice.
For years, despite its island
location near the beach and
the airport,. Base Avenue was
a combination of auto repair
shops, boatyards and low-
rent apartments. One day in
the not-too-distant-future, all
that will be.gone. New condo-
minium construction is the
future, and with Brezza del
Mare about to open, the
future is now.
Developers Bob Quandt
and Lynn A. Morey III have
planned and nearly complet-
ed a three-story Northern
Italian-style building contain-
ing 17 two- and three-bed-
room residences, a heated
pool, garages and a unique
built-in sanitized trash re-
moval system with access on
each floor.
Befitting the street's future
rather than its past, Quandt
and Morey have included
granite counters, 7-inch gen-
uine plaster crown moldings,
complete appliance packages
including washer and dryer,
keyless garage entries and a
built-in AM/FM CD system


MORE INFORMATION
For more information on
Brezza del Mare or to schedule
a tour, call Lynn A. Morey III,
president of Results Builders
Inc., at 725-2533, call Brezza
del Mare at 924-2203 or, visit
BrezzaDelmare.com.


plus wiring for surround
sound in each living room.
The real wood cabinets
include self-closing drawers.
Flooring throughout each
residence is 18-inch ceramic
tile installed on the diagonal
everywhere but the bed-
rooms. There is even tile on
the screened lanais.
About the only options left
are the surround sound sys-
tem with its seven speakers,
upgraded closet systems and
the available furniture and
drapery packages used in the
models.
And you can even swap
out the furniture, Quandt
said.
"If you want a different
chair or desk, that is no prob-
lem," he said. "We have all the
catalogs and are just provid-
ing this as a service."
The $40,000 furniture
package price compares fav-
orably with the $90,000 and
up decorating. packages


found in many similar-sized
furnished models. Rarely, if
ever, does one have a choice
of furniture when buying a
furnished model on a lease-
back deal. This deal is differ-
ent.
So are the crown moldings.
Hand-made to fit each resi-
dence by Renaissance Fine
Plaster of Venice, the mold-
ings, wall niches and ceiling
medallions add an elegant
touch to each room. So do the
custom tile work, granite
counters and the very design
of the building's exterior.
Across the back of the
building there is a deck cov-
ered in a wood-hued compo-
sition material that will never
cause splinters although it
looks like real wood. Made
from recycled plastic, the
material is as environmental-
ly friendly as the tile floors,
plasterwork and real wood
cabinets.
There will be two fur-
nished models by late Octo-
ber.
Five two-bedroom, two-
badi homes are available for
$399,900-$409,900. Six three-
bedroom residences are
available for $449,900-
$482,900.
Two of the six condomini-
ums already purchased were
priced in excess of $500,000.
