up for



a vote

New commercial-residential
zoning classification has
created sharp debate among
residents; community :-
leaders and businesses.

BY JJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Venice City Council is expected to
cast its first vote Tuesday for or
against a new zoning district that
caters to mixing residential, enter-
tainment and business all within the
same building.
Aside from traffic worries, most
residents and business leaders
appear to support the concept.
Height issues are what have been
at the heart of a heated debate. Anti-
grow'th and height groups have lined
up against the CMU, while business
leaders and other residents are
speaking up in favor ofit.'
Receiving less discussion are
items within the proposed ordi-
nance that allow density to exceed
18 units per acre and clearly define
ownership limitations on
condo/hotel businessess--. ..--..-- -
The ordinance comes up for a
vote at the 1:30 p.m. council meeting
at city hall following a Sept.'13 pre-
sentation. At that meeting, council
members and the public made sug-
gestions, and the upcoming vote
incorporates many of those.

to city council's desire to reinforce

Area women rescue animals from Gulf


BY ELLA NAYOR
STAFF WRITER


A chorus of yaps and canine
crooning filled the air at Karen
Ziober's Venice home Friday
morning.
But this was music to Ziober's
ears. A day earlier she had trav-
eled to Mobile, Ala., to deliver
vital livestock supplies and pick
up more than 40 cats and dogs
left homeless by Hurricane
Katrina.
Ziober, a wildlife rehabilitation
professional at Peace River
Wildlife in Venice, and Connie
Wofford. a Charlotte County resi-
dent, worked with local veterinar-
ians for the past month to bring
the homeless pets to the area.
Ziober, who had left on
Saturday with a trailer crammed
with about 3,500 pounds of
assorted feed and other farm sup-
plies, came back with what
amounted to a mini Noah's Ark.
On board were 22 dogs ofvari-
ous breeds and sizes and 20 cats.
Seven of the dogs were puppies.


The pets, most of which are
young and healthy, came from
Waveland, Miss., and were trans-
ported to a shelter in Mobile, said
Wofford.
The squealing, bright-eyed
menagerie of pets made the
ovomen laugh in delight.
"They're all so cute," Wofford
cooed-'. '
Ziober, still a bit tired from her
long trip, said she's relieved. Most


of the dogs rescued were slated to
be euthanized on the day Ziober
arrived.
"T am just so happy that wewere
able to do it," Ziober said. "It was
just perfect timing." '
Most of the dogs including a
Rottweiler described as "super
sweet," abeagle, a Benji-like terrier
mix, several retriever mixes and a
Jack Russell nix named Katie who
loves kids, are housebroken and


ready to go to a new, loving home.
Several local veterinary prac-
tices including Charlotte Animal
Hospital in Port Charlotte, the
Animal Medical Clinic in Punta
Gorda and the Pampered Pet
Health Center in Port Charlone will
have the adoptable pets, Wofford
-said. -. '
The pet crusaders spent tiday
dropping most of the animals at
the vets' offices.
The women are working on
their grassroots effort to save the
Katrina pets with Julia Fischer, who
works with both the Animal
Rescue Foundation and the
Kinship Circle in Mobile. The
groups have been sending out
detailed e-mails on how to help to
local communities such as
Charlotte.
Ziober said she never expected
that their project to save the
Katrina pets would go so far. More
trips, depending on donations,
might be in the works.
For information on how to
adopt a pet, contact Wofford at
661-3735 or Ziober at 468-5268.

As the citymoves toward creating
laws to fine renters instead of prop-
erty owners, members of the
Municipal Code Enforcement Board
appear to already be in that frame of
mind.
Building code violation charges
against The Venice Company were
dismissed by the code board at
Thursday's meeting, despite every-
one agreeing the violations had
occurred.
The, dismissal gives Jean
Trammell, the landlord, at 100 W.
Venice Ave. and owner ofTheVenice
Company, a clean slate so that
future violations do not result in
immediate fines.
A review of code board records
show this is the first time in atleast a
year such a decision was handed
down.

"I want to see some

Fred Hammett, Venice
city council member

The reason given for the decision:
The violations were the tenant's
fault,' and now that Venice Island
Pub is no longer there, the landlord
shouldn't be found guilty of building
code violations.
"That's because we knew who the
guilty party really was," Building
Department Director Hans Behrens
said. "(The owner) had made every
effort to come into compliance."

Finance director candidate

sorry for 'embarrassment'


BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Another search to find a Venice
finance director has ended in failure,
with. both the professional search
firm and the mayor withdrawing
their nominations just four days,
before Bill Poling was set to be hired
because he failed to
disclose a personal
bankruptcy from
1995.
:Both thle search
firm and Ma\yor
Dean Calamiaras
found outl through
newspaper reports,
providing another
embarrassment to POLING
Venice's attempt to
fill the finance director spot that's
been vacant for nearly a year and a
half.
Poling, the city finance director at
New Smyrna Beach since 1988,.


apologized to the mayor, council
members and City Manager Marty
Black in a written statement.
"I would like to extend my deep-
est and most sincere apologies for
the embarrassment borne by your
city over the last few days," Poling
wrote.
"Please know that it was not ever
my intention to willfully hold back
any information which may have
had influence over your delibera-
tions. Such is not my style, ,
"In my mind, there is a very clear
distinction between Public Finances
and personal money matters,... The
circumstances which resulted in my
filing personal bankruptcy a decade
ago had no impact then, and do not
now have any impact whatsoever to
the financial standing of the City of
New Smyrna Beach, or my capacity
to oversee the city's finances. What is
past is past."

Community digs new Venice YMCA


PHOTO COURTESY OF THE SOUTH COUNTY FAMILY YMCA
Shoveling dirt to kick off the construction of Venice's new YMCA facility are, from left, Jeannette Hanchey Flokstra with an original YMCA shovel from the 1975
groundbreaking, Marty Black, Amy Tougaw, David Joyner, Richard Appell, Ken Pfahler, Joy Mahler, Tony Levering, Susan Hanks, Jeff King, Nancy Detert, Dave
Williamson, Joe Thro, Georgia Miller, Michelle Hazeltine and Mike Miller.


STAFF REPORT


Groundbreaking cere-
monies for the South County
Family YMCA's new 55,000-
square-foot facility on Center
Road attracted a large crowd
of community leaders and
area residents on Oct. 5,
including representatives
from Big Brothers Big Sisters,
the American Cancer Society
and the Sertoma Speech
Clinic, which will be on-site
partners in the completed
project, scheduled for fall
2006.
"With a long-standing his-
tory of service to the Venice
community from both the
American Cancer Society and
'the YMCA, this expansion is
the perfect way to enhance
both organizations' service in
building a stronger commu-
nity," said Dave Joyner, chair-
man of the. board of the
American Cancer Society.
"We are thrilled to be partner-
ing with such a fine organiza-
tion."
Supporters included Mike
and Georgia Miller of
Waterford Companies Inc.;
State Rep. Nancy Detert;
Melody Trimble and Dave


Williamson of Venice
Regional Medical Center; and
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice Board
Chairman Joe Thro with Teri
Hansen, CEO.
"The foundation strives to
improve quality of life in the
communities we serve," said
Thro, "and the $810,000 capi-
tal grant to the Venice YMCA
is a significant investment to
accomplish that mission."
Almost 40 years ago, in
1966, the Venice YMCA
opened in a small, two-story
building under the Venice
Avenue bridge. Only a hand-
ful of youth sports programs
were available back then, and
by 1974, it was clear that the
YMCA needed to expand to
meet the needs of the com-


munity.
"Thirty years ago, local
families were concerned
because there were no after-
school programs in Venice
where kids could go to swim
and play," said Jeannette
Hanchey Flokstra, lifetime
honorary board member of
the Venice YMCA. "So we got
17 acres donated on Center
Road near Jacaranda, which
back then was considered
'out in the middle of
nowhere,' and. we started a
capital campaign to raise
funds for a new building."
The current Venice YMCA
building was constructed in
1975, and for more than 35
years has been serving chil-
dren and families in the com-
munity.


As the largest licensed
child-care provider in the
local area, the South County
Family YMCA provided more
than $350,000 last year in
scholarship assistance to
families in need for a variety
of programs such as pre-
school and after-school care,
summer camp, youth sports
and family memberships.
"The YMCA is the heart of
the community; a safe, nur-
turing environment where
kids, families and people of
all ages feel comfortable par-
ticipating," said Ken
Modzelewski, Ypresident and
CEO. "With our new facility,
we will be able to offer so
many more programs and
services."

VHS principal welcomes outside consultant help
'S alwloe *s


High school reform: County hires consultant to
build Small Learning Communities in all high
schools and to ensure they work as intended.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER
Some 'principals would
fear an outside consultant
whose job it is to analyze how
efficiently and effectively the
school teaches its students
and organizes its classes -
the traditional domain of the
principal.
But not Venice High's
Candace Millington. In her
fourth year as principal, she's
welcoming with open arms a
new initiative by the Sarasota
County School District to
ensure Small Learning
Communities are instituted
in all high schools.
Millington admits it's an
enormous undertaking to
reform high schools, espe-
cially when you are looking at
more then 2,200 students and
130 faculty. She has high
hopes it will help VHS stu-
dents achieve higher success
and make the school a more
personable place for youth.
"It's like a small town," she.
said. "Our high schools have
become impersonal places
where students feel anony-
mous. To implement best
practices and provide the
kind of personal attention we
would like to see is a daunting
task. We have some things we
have established, such as our
Pathways, block scheduling,
Cornerstone program, a data
coach, and a new teacher
advisory group, but our work
is not finished."
Venice High already 'has
Learning Academies similar
to SLC's, largely due to
Millington's efforts.
The Academies are
designed as schools within a
school, and have been work:
'ing well, say school officials. It
is an attempt to create a
smaller learning environ-
ment, where students know
each other better and with
more adult interaction all.
with an eve on making school
more relevant to kids.
Now,, Sarasota County


School Board wants SLC's in
all high schools and may be
looking at how to implement
them in middle and elemen-
tary schools down the road.
Last month they signed a
three-year contract with the
Institute for Research and
Reform in Education to
review the curriculum and'
make-up of each high school.
The far-reaching reform
effort will review school pro-
cedures and practices to
make sure the curriculum in
all high schools is properly
aligned with state standards,
how teachers rttilize testing
data, and to review the struc-'
ture and effectiveness of
existing SLC's, among other
things.
Top notch
To help ensure the consul-.
tant's efforts dofnt go the way
of other fly-by in-services and
failed reform efforts, they are
requiring the district to create
a new full-time position in
each school to train, monitor,
and evaluate reform progress.
The new position would
answer not to the principal of
the school, but directly to
IRRE, who in turn answers
directly to the district's super-
intendent.
The position of School
Improvement Specialist
come on line in the spring.


District officials say the new
positions will be filled by top
notch educators already
teaching within the district.
The teacher salary will be
paid on an 11-month con-
tract, with an additional sup-
plemental that could bring
the salary up to that of an
assistant principal.
"Since we instituted
Learning Academies, we have
many new teachers who have
come on board due to
reduced class size and stu-
dent population growth, so
there is this continuous
growth and need for staff
development," Millington
said.
"I think our teachers are
also supportive.,We've imple-
mented a new teacher advi-
sory group that's being inte-
grated inro our culture. we'ree
finding that we have more
work to'do with that..It has
been looking at kids and their
career paths. There is some
additional personalization we
could be doing. I am presum-
ing IRRE will look at closer
family contacts of some some
sort," she said.
IRRE consultants visited
the district in July to discuss
curriculum alignment and
rigor. They explained their
instructional improvement
model and how it will be
measured.
Engaging
"This is a huge issue. It's
difficult for teachers to stop in
the midst of instructing to
learn about reform efforts. It's

like changing the tires on the
bus while it is moving. So the
additional support is good. It
will help us be sure it's done
effectively," Millington said.
Lori White, associate
superintendent for instruc-
tional support services, said
'the district needs additional
help with implementing
reforms and that "external
pressure and support" would


benefit the selected schools.
"Our teachers want the
best for their students," said
Millington. "They want to
implement best practice.
When they are given the right
information, or (information)
about their test scores, or
ways to engage students, they
automatically buy-in because
that's what they want to hap-
pen in the classroom."


IRRE will provide technical
assistance and training to
Sarasota County central office
staff, as well as Sarasota,
Booker, North Port, Riverview
and Venice high schools to
plan and assist the district
with implementing compre-
hensive high school reforms.

New additions for Venice Librarys youth area


L .,- -, '.
SUN PHOTO BY JEFF TAVARES, jtavares@venicegondolier.com
Construction is nearly complete on the Venice Library's new
addition. A computer lab and youth story room will occupy the
new space.


CHRISTINA ELWELL
STAFF WRITER

Venice Library youth
department staff is eagerly
awaiting the completion of
the library's new addition.
The addition has been antici-
pated among library employ-
ees for quite some time, and
they expect that it will finally
be completed by the year's
end.
"Hopefully by Thanksgiv-
ing," Roland Marcotte, senior
librarian, said. "But we really
don't know."
The newly added section
of the library will include two
new rooms: a computer room
and a story room.
The computer lab will be
shared between the youth
department and the rest of


the library.
"We will have adult classes
in the morning and youth
classes in the afternoon, after
school," youth department
librarian Pam Johnson said.
According to Theo
Rockwell of the youth depart-
ment, keyboarding lessons
will begin when the construc-
tion is completed and a
"smart board" to connect the
computer instructor with the
students is brought into the
new lab.
"And a good projector and
screen," Marcotte added.
The new story room will be
used specifically for the
library's youth.
"It'll be nice that they will
have their own place,"
Johnson said.
Rockwell is pleased that


they will no longer have to
compete for use of the cur-
rent activity room that is
shared with the rest of the
library.
"We are going to be able to
be more spontaneous with
our activities," Rockwell said.
Johnson is excited to begin
new youth programs that will
be held in the additional
space.
"We're gonna do anything
the kids want us to do,"
Johnson said.
Just the way it goes
A snag in the construction
process recently had rain
pouring down the walls. As
the construction crewworked
on the new addition, a leakj
ceiling came as an unfortu-
nate side effect.


"They cut away part of the
roof for the construction,"
Marcotte said. "That's just the
way it goes. We took that
chance when we took this
project."
Several children's books

SKA weighs lawsuit over duplex decisions


On Sept. 13, the county commission agreed to
allow more duplexes on Siesta Key. The result will
be a density increase currently prohibited.


BYJACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


When Sarasota County
recently decided to amend
both its zoning code and
comprehensive plan so more
duplexes can be built on
already crowded Siesta Key, it
risked a backlash from resi-
dents who might try to block
the changes in court.
A prepared motion to sue
the county in the 12th Judicial
Circuit Court was to be con-
sidered late Thursday when
the Siesta Key Association
convened its monthly board
meeting.
It was drafted by Sarasota
attorney Robert Turffs, who
was retained by the associa-
tion after it discovered county
building and zoning officials
have allowed owners of
undersized lots to build
duplexes that are in apparent
violation of local density reg-
ulations.
"I wouldn't want to specu-
late what the board members
will do," said association vice-
president Lourdes Ramirez,
who has done most of the
organization's research on the
controversial duplex issue.
"But it is important that we
consider this as a density
issue."
Limits
On .Sept. 13, the county
commission made sweeping
decisions to address inconsis-
tencies in the way building
permits have been issued for


duplexes on undersized lots
that fail to meeting zoning
requirements, and to allow a
handful of property owners to
proceed with projects.
After several hours of con-
tentious and often conflicting
debate, the. commission
made a series of decisions
with potential long-term con-
sequences for property own-
ers who own multi-family lots
on Siesta Key, and the resi-
dents who live near them.
They include:
1) No new duplexes to be
allowed on barrier island lots
that are less than 7,500 square
feet unless there are existing
duplex units there.
2) New duplexes to be
allowed on barrier island lots
that are 7,500 square feet and
larger if they meet the setback
requirements for single-fami-
ly homes.
3) New duplex structures
can only cover up to 35 per-
cent of multi-family zoned
lots, and impermeable sur-
faces can only cover up to 50
percent.
4) New duplex structures
will be limited to 30 feet in
height above federal flood
elevations measured either to
the mid-point of a peaked
roof or the top of a flat roof.
Codifying errors
About 20 Siesta Key prop-
erty owners who had either
filed for building applica-
tions or had received letters
from building officials that
stated they could build

duplex units on their sites
were exempted from new
regulations, which could
take a year to adopt.
"They won't have to meet
the height and setback
restrictions," Ramirez said.
"But a more important con-
cern is the commission may
treat this experience as a
precedent that allows it to
codify errors into law when
county officials make zoning
mistakes in the future."
SAnn Kaplan, Siesta Key
Association president, said,
"Eighty-nine percent of our
members have advised us
that controlling density on
Siesta Key is their No. 1 con-
cern. Therefore that is the No.
1 goal of the board of direc-
tors, and we will do every-
thing in our power to achieve
our goal."
Just how significant the
Siesta Key density increase
could be as a result of the
commission's Sept. 13 deci-
sions has yet to be deter-
mined. Ramirez has counted
about 100 potential units in
one beachfront area and
believes the overall total
could be between 200 and
300.
"It isn't that simple to cal-
culate," she explained. "It
took me two weeks to look at
just one neighborhood on the
county's -land use maps.
There are a lot of residential
multi-family zones concen-
trated on the beach and bay
sides of Beach Road."
Conflict
The duplex controversy on
Siesta Key came to a head last


July 27 when commissioners
failed to resolve problems
that began when the county's
1975 zoning code was adopt-
ed and a handful of property
owners with undersized lots
were assured they could still
build duplexes.
What stymied commis-
sioners were internal deci-
sions made 30 years ago that
appeared to conflict with the
county's comprehensive
plan, and County Attorney
Steve DeMarsh's warning that
the plan would have to be
changed if the practices were
to continue.
After a series of failed
motions, the commission
finally agreed to honor letters
of assurance issued by build-
ing officials to mainland own-
ers of undersized duplex lots,
but left decisions related to
Siesta Key unresolved until
the Sept. 13 meeting.
The duplex controversy
began when Siesta Key
Association officials while
asking questions about the
high number of units
approved for several new pro-
jects discovered that build-
ing permits had been issued
for new structures on under-'
sized RMF-1 (multi-family)
zoned lots.
On June 9, the county
commission was warned by
Zoning Administrator Mary
Beth Humphreys that per-
mits and promissory letters
authorized by her predeces-
sors dated back many years,
and DeMarsh cautioned a
continuation of the practice
may be a violation of Florida
law.

Owners: Rialto Shopping Center will stay put


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


Owners of Rialto Shopping
Center are blaming "miscom-
munication" on a potential
renter of the vacant Food
Lion store saying the deal fell
through because the mall
would be demolished in
seven years.
"We don't have any plans
to tear down the Rialto
Shopping Center," said J.


Lindsay, owner of the Rialto
Shopping Center on Venice
island on U.S. 41 Business.
"We're a little bit in waiting.
It definitely needs attention
in respect to its aesthetic
appeal. We're trying to line
(new tenants) up."
A story inside of the Oct. 7
edition quote Pelican Pete's
Playland owner Scott Buda as
saying his rental deal for the
old grocery store space fell
through because the owners


did not want a long-term deal
beyond seven years. Food
Lion must continue paying
rent for the next 6.5 years, and
Buda was working through
Food Lion agents attempting
to sublease the space.
Lindsay said he and Buda
never actually spoke, and he
wasn't aware the indoor
miniature golf park and video
arcade business had already
signed a letter of intent with
Food Lion.


Messages were left with
Lindsay before the story was
published.
Buda has already signed a
deal to take Pelican Pete's to
San Antonio, Texas.
Lindsay said he wanted to
assure both the current busi-
nesses and customers that
the Rialto will remain right
where it is, and his group is
working to make additional
improvements.
Rumors persist that Rialto


will be torn down and
replaced with condomini-
ums.
Lindsay, who has owned
the center for two years, said
that is not his plans, but he
will not ignore what the mar-
ket brings.
The Sarasota County
Property Appraiser lists the
86,000 square feet of build-
ings as only being worth
$269,000, while the 6.3 acres
of land is valued at $2.3 mil-


lion.
Lindsay-Rialto Group
bought the strip mall Aptil 24,
2003, for $2.6 million.
"You always have that as
part of the conversation,"
Lindsay said. "That may freak
people out, but you always
look at land values and
changing markets."

hood compatibility and com-
munity architectural design
standards are assured,"
Planning and Zoning Director
Tom Slaughter wrote in his
memo to council.
E-mail attacks
The flurry of opinions for
and against the concept are
gradually getting more per-
sonal and attacking, leading
one to believe crowds will be
lined up to speak at Tuesday's
public hearing.
In an e-mail to city council
members, former planning
commissioner Greg Shanika
blasted local business leader
Jim Clinch's opinion column
that called the Envision
Venice public opinion sur-
veys "a seriously flawed exer-
cise" and a "large waste of
time.
"I have been a professional
community- and business
strategic planner for more
than 30 years; and I have
never seen such an outstand-
ing, community-oriented
planning process as Envision
Venice. ... It is a shame that
Mr. Clinch failed to partici-
pate in this democratic
process and now feels, com-
pelled to criticize the City
Council, Planning commis-
sion, planning staff and all
who did endorse and partici-
pate," Shanika wrote in his e-
mail to city council.
The e-mailed opinion

tinued offof Shanika's written
comments, with Clinch say-
ing his criticisms were of the
"zero growth" groups not
city staff.

group, which they are, and

there are quite a few signifi-

but the entire ordinance is
available online at venice-

meetings link.
Height rules The initial
section on allowable heights
was only one paragraph and
*three sentences long, and
allowed up to 45 height-by-
right feet and up to 80 feet
with council approval. The
entire section has been
expanded with specific
wording to limit automatic
height at 35 feet; approval of
additional height must not
hurt adjacent properties;
varying heights are required

approval contingent on a
binding master concept
plan.
Historic downtown If
it's approved, the CMU could
potentially be applied to any
area of the city deemed to be
a center of commercial and
residential activity, except
Historic Downtown andWest
Venice Avenue. Wording was
added that excludes any por-
tion of land within the
Historic Theme District and
the Neighborhood Height
Overlay boundaries.


Condo/Hotel The offi-
cial term will be "condomini-
um hotel," instead of
condo/hotel, according to
the rewrite. No set density is
established for these, stating
that city council shall
"impose limitations on the
size of living unit, including
number of bedrooms." No
clear definition of operation
and ownership restrictions
could be found, either.
Affordable housing -
Under the density section, a
paragraph has been added to
allow for more than 18 units
per acre, which is the city's
maximum density. This new
number of living units per
acre is not stated; however,
the proposal states that high
density will be allowed under
a binding development that
"additional dwelling units
will be dedicated for rental
apartments and workforce
housing."

FINANCE from page lA


The search continues
This isn't the first time
Venice has failed to hire a
finance director. Three days
before individual candidate
interviews this spring, two of
the top three choices abruptly
withdrew their names and the
search was canceled.
On Aug. 9, 2004, the
replacement for retired
finance director Mike
McPhail quit after only five
weeks on the job. It was later
revealed that James Olson
had never officially resigned
from his finance job with the
city of Jamestown, N.Y., where
he returned.
This leaves Acting Finance
Director JoAnne Lounsbury
in charge for 14 months. The
city has already completed
one budget without a full-
time finance director, and the
process to balance the $72
million budget starts in two
months.
Nearly every person at city
hall admits that Lounsbury
cannot be expected to contin-
ue doing the job of two peo-
ple. It was recently reveled
that citizen tax oversight
committees on the $10 mil-
lion bond and 1-cent sales tax
haven't met since 2001
because only the finance
director has the authority to
call the first meeting.
More than 65 percent of
the bond money has already
been spent, and city ordi-
nances require the 1-cent
committee meet at least once
a year.
"JoAnne has done a really
good job of holding it togeth-
er, but she needs help and
we're going to help her,"
Calamaras said.
Many with the city contin-
ue to blame the pay scale and
charter officer status on why a
finance director cannot be
found. The starting salary has
been increased to $90,000,
but it remains one of four
charter officer positions.
Some on council have sug-
gested rolling the finance
director position into the city
managers office to be under
his control. However, oppo-
nents of this say this gives the


"Please know that it was
not ever my intention to
willfully hold back any
information which may
have had influence over
your deliberations."
Bill Poling, who was
to be hired as city
finance director Tuesday

city manager too much
power.
Hidden past
Poling had kept the bank-
ruptcy filing secret even from
his long-time boss in New
Smyrna Beach, according to a
report by the city's search
firm, Colin Baenziger &
Associates.
New Smyrna Beach City
Manager Frank Roberts said
he only found out within the
past year of the 1995 bank-
ruptcy, but that he would still
hire and recommend Poling
for any finance position
because it did not affect
Poling's "job performance in
any way."
Poling's qualifications were
strong, and he is a native of
the area from Bradenton, so
Mayor Calamaras said he
may have recommended
Poling despite the bankrupt-
cy. ,
It was the issue of keeping
secrets that led to Mayor
Calamaras withdrawing his
support, he said in an inter-
view.
Baenziger & Associates
have waived its $15,000 fee
and accepted all responsibili-
ty for missing the bankruptcy,
which was removed from
Poling's credit report after
seven years. His current cred-
it rating is fine.
"We take full responsibility
for, the situation and apolo-
gize to you and the city for the
embarrassment it has caused
you," wrote Colin Baenziger.
Members from the Florida
League of Cities will be asked
to help find a finance director
this time around.

LANDLORD from page 1A


Current city building code
laws are not written that way,
providing the property owner
is responsible no matter who
actually violates the code.
-Code board decisions within
the past year have hit land-
lords with fines because of
their tenants even after a
violation was corrected.
Moon Mist case
The violations at 100 W.
Venice Ave. were for the bar
using its balcony for people to
stand and sit on, instead of
just going in and out the main
doors, as the original design
plans call for. Code enforce-
ment officers cited the prop-
erty owner instead of the bar
owners, as is done in every
other case.
Because of the dismissal of
.the charges against The
Venice Company, any future
violations by new, tenants will
not be considered repeat vio-


lations triggering draw imme-
diate fines. All other cases
within the past year have
been handled differently,
with a guilty verdict issued
but fines waived fines while
the board retained the right to
issue immediate fines on the
next violation.
Moon Mist Apartments,
1400 The Rialto, was found
guilty at the March 3 meeting
of offensive accumulations
and an unlicensed car in front
of its complex. No fines were
levied because the landlord
had corrected the violations
caused by tenants.
Three months later, new
charges were brought against
Moon Mist and the complex
was fined a total of $1,000,
despite the violations being
corrected before the Code
Board meeting.
Pressuring tenants
Code Board Chair woman


Diana Mier and Fred
Haminett, council's ex officio
representative on the board,
disagreed that Thursday's
decision in favor of The
Venice Company was an
exception to existing policy.
"The property owner
(Trammell) has spent two
years in litigation trying to get
rid of that tenant (VIP owner
Anthony Tundo)," Hammett
said. "I want to see some
changes so the tenant feels
some heat when they ignore
the property owner."
' Hammett will most likely
get his wish Oct. 25 when a


aN~aree~ _______


L r1r a t'j


proposal giving code enforce-
ment officers the power to
issue tickets is expected to be
voted on by council mem-
bers.
Much like writing parking
and speeding tickets, code
officers would be able to write
citations for up to $500 and
hand them out to whoever
the officer believes caused the
violation; Existing laws limit
responsibility to property
owners.

clean up
STAFF REPORT

Venice Middle School sev-
enth-grade Champions team,
one of three seventh-grade
teams at VMS, pose with teach-
ers and parents.
The students spent all day
Sept. 17, part of Sarasota
Coastal Clean Up Day, picking
up trash and removing leftover
construction and other litter
from the Venice Train Depot
and boat ramp area.
Students picked up more
than 300 pieces of shoreline lit-
ter, 135 food wrappers, 40
items associated with boating
and fishing, more than 1,000
cigarette butts and other
debris, as well as abandoned
construction materials.


"The kids were very sur-
prised at how much trash was
out there," said Susan Maas-


Lyon, teacher and event orga-
nizer. "They were pretty out-
raged with people who litter....


They were especially curious
why the depot doesn't have
ashtrays."


Lemon Bay Park receives grant for land


STAFF REPORT

Lemon Bay -Park has
received a $1.1 million grant to.
help pay for 12 acres the park
acquired recently. It will help
fund a narrow strip of shoreline
and pine flat woods the park
acquired this year.


Sarasota County matched
the grant with a $1.5 million
contribution of its own.
The iland-is. located in the
park's northwest corner,, said
park naturalist Kathi Rader-
Gibson.
Public access to the area has
yet to be established. The trail


would likely extend about a
quarter-mile and include park
benches.
Lemon Bay Park is a 212-
acre park overlooking Lemon
Bay on Bay Park Boulevard.
It was founded in 1986.
Since then, the park's acreage
has nearly quadrupled, with


additional wetlands, and pine
and scrubby flatwoods. The
park is home to snakes, bob-
cats and nesting American
bald eagles.
Rader-Gibson said addi-
tional expansion is unlikely,
however, since the park is sur-
rounded by development.


Sarasota Conservation Foundation claims largest grant


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

A grant of $6.6 million -
the largest ever made to a
nonprofit organization by the
Florida Communities Trust -
was won by the Sarasota
Conservation Foundation.
Representatives of the
foundation, area conserva-
tionists and Sarasota County
Commissioner Nora
Patterson successfully argued
the merits of the grant at a


meeting with the governing
board of directors of the trust
in Tallahassee.
The money will enable the
foundation to buy a 4.38-acre
homesite on Palmetto Avenue
in Osprey, and convert it into a
public boat ramp, a kayak
launch and training facilities
for a youth rowing club. The
foundation will also create a
natural history museum and a
quarter-mile trail thatwill allow
hikers to examine local plant
and animal life.


Eighty-six applicants from
around the state applied for
Communities Trust grants,
which are awarded annually.
The foundation application
won because it proposed a
wide diversity of public uses,
according to Albert Joerger,
president and founder of the
foundation.
He cited his organization's
collaboration with the county
in preserving public access to
the waterfront for the high
ranking received by the pro-


posal in preliminary rounds
of the grant competition. In
the two years of the founda-
tion's existence, it has supple-
mented the county's conser-
vation purchasing power by
$8.5 million, Joerger said.
The purchase of the Osprey
property adds to the 273 acres
of protected land on the Little
Sarasota Bay ecological corri-
dor. That includes Palmer Point
Park on the northern tip of
Casey Key, Historic Spanish
Point and the Neville Preserve.

CHIP launches a new diabetes program for seniors

CHIP launches a new diabetes program for seniors


BY CHRISTINA ELWELL
STAFF WRITER


The CHIP Community
Health Action Team Senior
Issues Committee has been
working to improve the over-
all health of Sarasota
County's senior citizens. But
overall health includes so
many aspects that it have
focused its efforts on one
important issue.
"That committee wanted
to address chronic condi-
tions in the elderly. That was
a lot to tackle, so they started
with diabetes," said Kari
Ellingstad of the Sarasota
County Health Department.
The committee came up
with a six-month pilot study
to test adults who are at least
60 years old, to research the
effectiveness of a home-
based diabetes management
program.
"For the past year or so,
the Senior Issues Committee
of the Laurel, Osprey, Venice,
Nokomis CHAT has been
working to develop a dia-
betes program for seniors,"
Ellingstad said in an e-mail
interview. "The group pooled
resources and brainpower
and developed an in-home
diabetes'intervention which
addresses social, medical
and educational needs
among this target popula-
tion."
This study will include
two groups, both consisting
of 40 participants. The inter-
vention group will received
visits from a nurse and
Senior Friendship Center
volunteer, as well as a nutri-
tion assessment and lessons
from a diabetes educator.
The control group will not
receive as many services.
Participants will randomly
be' assigned to one of the two
groups.
"It's a randomized control
trial ... it's an example of
community-based participa-
tory research," Ellingstad
explained. "We have been
recruiting participants since
late August and we're almost
half-way, to our goal of
enrolling 80 individuals."
Funding for this research
project is coming from the
USF Center for Research and
Health Care systems and
Policies, along with the
Sarasota County Health
Department.
Asocial
connection
Keith Backhaus, of the
Senior Friendship Centers,
believes that the key to this
study is the human aspect of
the process.
"It's a human project,"
Backhaus said. "We are try-
ing to address the whole per-
son."
According to Backhaus,
the main problem they must
address is the mental
anguish in senior citizens.
"One of the commonali-
ties we.find in chronic illness
is depression," he said.
"That's a double whammy
for our elders."
Backhaus believes that a
social connection can do as
much good as medical atten-
tion.
"The Friendship at Home
program brings in people
from the community to
help," he said.
'A social connection will
affect their medical condi-
tion. Some seniors don't eat
right because they say
nobody loves them, nobody
cares, so why should it mat-
ter. The magic is when you.
bring in the different ser-
vices, but also the human
compassion."
Along with brightening
seniors' days with human
contact, Backhaus hopes to
eliminate some of the harsh
side effects of chronic ill-
nesses, such as diabetes.
"(Chronic illnesses) are
not something that you can
cure; they're ongoing," he
said
"What we are trying to do
is prevent the secondary
conditions that take place


that send people to the
emergency room. If we can
control the diabetes, we can
control the secondary condi-
tions."


Second-oldest
population
Ellingstad believes that
the CHAT Senior Issues
Committee is becoming
increasingly more important
because of the percentage of
the population that is over
the age of 60.


According to a 2000 study,
the median age ofVenice res-
idents is 68.8.
The study also found that
Venice has the second-oldest
population in the United
States, and Sarasota County
has the oldest population in
Florida.
CHIP believes that dia-


betes is a major health con-
cern.
In a 2003 CHIP survey,
13.3 percent of respondents
had diabetes and 16.8 per-
cent had a family member
with diabetes.
Ellingstad is still searching
for participants for the dia-
betes study.


Last 2 days!


"We're still looking,"
Ellingstad said. "We're target-
ing Type 2 diabetes in those
over 60 in South Sarasota
County."
If you are interested in
participating in the study,
contact Kari Ellingstad at
861-2867 or visit
chip4health.org/ \study.htm.


The next LOVN CHAT
Senior Issues Committee
meeting is at 2:30 p.m. on
Oct. 19 at Gulf Coast
Community Foundation of
Venice.

Mental health services in need



of more collaboration efforts


BYJOHN MCCAFFERTY
SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUN


If Michael Theall has his
way, the mental health services
system in Sarasota County
soon will replace "fragmenta-
tion" with "collaboration."
Who's Michael Theall?
He's Sarasota County's first
Mental Health and Substance
Abuse Policy Coordinator, who
brought his 27 years of experi-
ence here from Fort Wayne,
Ind., where he was chief oper-
ating officer for a community
mental health center covering
four counties. Single, 49, with a
13-year-old daughter, Theall
lives in the Bums Court area of
Sarasota. Recently, I met with
him at the Health and Services
Building in Sarasota where he's
been on the job since late
March.
Theall's immediate task is to
work with a group of stake-
holders known as the
Consortium to develop and
implement a new mental
health plan for Sarasota
County. That's important to
nearly 60,000 local people over
age 18 who have a diagnosable
mental illness, and their fami-
lies, and to the many govern-
ment agencies and providers
who deliver services to the
mentally ill. Theall expects the
plan to be ready by early
November, if not sooner.
Many mental health ser-
vices are available here but,
according to a study by
Sarasota County Openly Plans
for Excellence, the system is
fragmented and has service
gaps that prevent some clients
from receiving effective treat-
ment.
"No one provider is going to
be able to be all things to all
people," Theall said. "In the
future, collaboration is the
name of the game not just.
in this county but statewide.


"I'd love to see an office complex in each
community where there's a Medicaid office, a
Coastal office for mental health, a First Step
office for substance abuse and a Florida Center
for specialty services."
Michael Theall, Sarasota
County's first Mental Health
and Substance Abuse Policy Coordinator


Needs change and we have to
keep looking at them. We have
to keep the collaboration
going."
Theall views his new assign-
ment as "kind of a dream job. I
get to put my fingers in many
things and to work with all the
service providers."
A state employee assigned
to the county, Theall draws
part of his salary from grants
by Gulf Coast Community
Foundation inVenice.
Since he arrived, many
things on the mental health
front have been happening,
some started by others before
he arrived. For example,
"We've applied for a $9 million
federal grant to develop an-
early childhood mental health
project," he revealed. The six-
year project would bring
providers together to offer
"wrap-around" mental health
services for children from birth
to age 8.
If the grant is approved,
Theall said, there will be a great
deal of collaboration: "For
instance, there could be family
counseling, parenting classes,
school intervention and inter-
vention with the court sys-
tem."
Theall doesn't take creditfor
the project: "Other people did
a great deal of work on it before
I arrived. My job was to help
pull it together and get it out
the door."

commissioners in July, he said,
"we were able to get $2 million
for a jail diversion program to
keep substance abusers out of
jails and get them long-term
treatment. That's better than
the vicious cycle of substance
abuse, arrest and out the door."
He said substance abuse
and mental health issues usu-
ally go hand-in-hand, "espe-
cially with that population."
SCOPE said the present
mental health services system
lacks overall coordination,
communication and aware-
ness of services. Reaching
behind his desk, Theall pulled
out a stack of papers he thinks
should help remedy some of
this.
'We've identified all of the
organizations that provide
mental health services
throughout the county. We
want to break down the infor-
mation so it not only shows
geographically where the ser-
vices are but enables us to
compare and contrast the
actual population of the coun-
ty."
Theall knows Sarasota well
from many visits here over the
years before he came to live
and work here. He said 10
years ago the majority of peo-
ple in the county lived within
close proximity of Sarasota.
Since then, there's been


tremendous growth elsewhere
in the county "and our mental
health services haven't caught
up with that yet."
The closing of the psychi-
atric unit at Bon Secours
Venice Hospital (now Venice
Area Regional Center) in
February 2003, left a big hole in
the county, Theall said.
"We haven't filled that hole
yet and don't know how to fill
that hole until we sit down,
look at all the information and
ask: where should the money
go?"
Like many executives,
Theall has a "Wish List" and at
the top is "more money from
Tallahassee." He can't say
exactly how much he needs
but knows what he'd do with
the money if he could get it.
He envisons a Family
Services Center in every town
in the county, where those in
need of mental health services
would have "one-stop shop-
ping." He said North Port is
already developing such a cen-
ter.
"I'd love to see an office
complex in each community
where there's a Medicaid office,
a Coastal office for mental
health, a First Step office for
substance abuse and a Florida
Center -for specialty services,"
he said.
An issue Theall is just start-
ing to work on "but this is a
very important issue to me" -
is older adult mental health.
Sarasota County has one of the
oldest populations in the
nation, he said, and there are
many activities for seniors, as
well as many medical and
social services.
"What we don't have is
many psychological services
for them. And those issues are
huge."

CEO of Coastal


Behavioral resigns


STAFF REPORT

Dr. Christine Cauffield has
announced that she will
resign as president and chief
executive officer of Coastal
Behavioral Healthcare Inc.,
the region's leading behav-
ioral healthcare provider,
effective Dec. 30.
In a statement to the board
of directors Cauffield said, "It
is with deep regret that I ten-
der my resignation as presi-
dent and chief executive offi-
cer of Coastal Behavioral
Healthcare Inc. As many of
you know, I have been com-
muting to Orlando on a regu-
lar basis for the past two years
to assist my
mother with :--
caregiving for .
my father and -.
grandmother.
Their health
has contin- :
ued to decline
and the care- '^
g i v ing CAUFFIELD
responsibili-
ties have now
seriously impacted my moth-
er's health. This situation now
requires that I take the prima-
ry role as caregiver, which will
necessitate a move to
Orlando."
Cauffield, a nationally rec-
ognized expert in geriatric
neuropsychology, has been at
the helm of Coastal since
1999. During this time, the
agency has experienced
tremendous growth: an
increase in budget of 123 per-
cent, doubling the service
delivery area to include two
more counties and doubling
the number of staff, which
has positioned Coastal as one
of the top 10 employers in the
area.

work with Dr. Cauffield and

clients we serve," said Jim
Allan, chairman of the board
of directors. "Coastal has
grown and flourished under
her leadership. Her departure
will be a tremendous loss to
us. She has skillfully guided;

The agency has received

An alternative hangout for South County teens


The South County
Young Adult Center
provides a safe and fun
alternative for after-
school activities.

BY CHRISTINA ELWELL
STAFF WRITER

The South County Young
Adult Center is a supervised
activity center available for
kids that need a place to go
after school.
"We have a full range of
kids, but most of them are
street kids; they would hang
around the mall or outside
stores after school if they did-
n't come here," said Ed Eagen,
executive director of the cen-
ter. "We want to get them
interested in something other
than just walking the streets."
The SCYAC's main goal is
to give its 150 young mem-
bers, who often do not come
from a stable home environ-
ment, an alternative to after-
school activities.
"We're the alternative that
they never had before," Eagen
said. "It's basic, it's elemen-
tary, but it's necessary."
A watchful eye
Eagen and his colleges
keep in contact with school
counselors to keep track of
their membership. If a stu-
dent is missing from either
school or the SCYAC for an
extended period of time, both
sources will know about it
and check on the teen.
Eagen wants to encourage
kids to finish high school and
go on to further education.
"Do you really want to be a
carpenter all your life? Or do
you want to try for something
more?" Eagen asks them.
SThe SCYAC has two coun-
seling rooms for kids who
need to be confronted with
problems, such as skipping
school, or for teens who just
need to talk to somebody.
The SCYAC volunteers also

The South County Young Adult Center's executive director, Ed Eagan, tells teen members to
paint their silhouettes on the center's walls. Eagen says it encourages them to participate and
allows them to get involved in the design of the center.

work to get and keep kids off
of drugs.
"We are reaching some -
not all, but at least some,"
Eagen said.
Another perk of going to
the SCYAC is that kids get the
chance to work off communi-
ty service through volunteer-
ing. Many members work in
the cafe.
Eagen tries to deter teens
from getting into trouble by
keeping them busy.
"If I hear that somebody's
parents are going to be out of
town and there's going to be a
big party, I say it's time for a
pool tournament," Eagen
said.


Something for everyone
The youth center is a teen
haven. With a wide-screen
TV several pool tables, video
games, board games, sitting
areas, computers, weight
machines, rowing machines,
a basketball hoop, a paint
room, a piano, an electronic
keyboard and a cafe run by
the kids, it has everything
that a teenager could want
for after-school activity.
"Almost everything you
,see in here has been donat-
ed," Eagen said. "Over
$25,000 worth."
The SCYAC also holds sev-
eral weekly activities.
Programs at the center are


Eagen is working to bring
in a new program. He hopes
to recruit Tito Gaona to teach
the kids clown, high-wire,
trapeze and dance skills.
"I'm trying to recruit
enough kids to make it hap-
pen," Eagen said.
Looking around the youth
center, silhouette paintings of
teenagers are seen painted all
over the walls. Members have
the option of tracing their
body frame and then painting
themselves on the walls of the
SCYAC.
"There's a few more each
week," Eagen said. "Gets the
kids involved."
The music man
Greg Bell is one of the
Young Adult Center workers
and a very experienced guitar
player. Each Thursday, Bell


holds a guitar and music clin-
ic for any teen interested.
"He relates to the kids real-
ly well," Eagen said.
Members are invited to
bring in their musical instru-
ments and get a free lesson
from Bell.
"They can pick my brain
about music theory or learn a
tune," Bell said.
Bell recently invited a local
female guitar player and
singer to join him in his class.
"I'm trying to reach out to
the girls too," Bell said. "I
think seeing her play and sing
may help inspire them."

create an activity they like,"
Eagen said.
'Yoga, acting class, pool
tournaments and auto main-
tenance are included on this
list. A favorite among the
teens is stained-glass mak-
ing.
"Some of them make
coasters. The girls prefer to
make jewelry," Eagen said.
This Saturday, Oct. 8, a
concert, with two local teen
bands, and dance night was
held at the SCYAC.
For Halloween, the teens
will be hosting a haunted
house on the Thursday,
Friday and Saturday before
Halloween. The girls will also
decorate the inside of the
center and hold a costume
ball.

S8L County


Sleeping Turtles Preserve receives
nearly $2 million state grant
Sarasota County has received a $1.99 million grant from the
Florida Communities Trust (FCT) to help fund the purchase of
Sleeping Turtles Preserve, a four-parcel site containing more
than 200 acres of Florida habitat along the Myakka River.
The preserve was acquired by Sarasota County in November
2004 as part of the Environmentally Sensitive Lands Protection
Program (ESLPP). It consists of pine flatwood forests, wetlands
and hammock swamp habitats along the Myakka River. The
land is home to alligators, gopher tortoises and a host of birds,
including the American bald eagle.
FCT's grant will provide a 45 percent reimbursement of the
preserve's original $4.4 million cost. It also marks the first time
the county has entered into a joint application for an FCT grant,
partnering with The Nature Conservancy (TNC), which provided
all the graphics, maps and surveys required for the application.
Currently, anyone canoeing the Myakka River from Laurel
Road south to Interstate 75 can paddle past the wild areas and
large oak trees protected within Sleeping Turtles Preserve.
Future plans for the site include public access to the river via a
hiking trail extension and an additional two miles of hiking and
equestrian trails along the river corridor.
Amenities will eventually include public parking, a picnic
pavilion and picnic shelters, along with a new canoe and kayak
launch. Primitive trails on the preserve should be open to the
public by next summer, and marked trails, picnic shelters and
canoe landings are to be installed in the next two years. A
grand opening is scheduled for 2007.
For more information on Sleeping Turtles Preserve or any of
the sites mentioned above, contact the Sarasota County Call
Center at (941) 861-5000 and ask for project scientist Brooke
Elias.

# Indians comeback falls short


Sandburg,


Dombroski


softball duo

Larry Sandburg and Pete
Dombroski know a heck of a
lot about baseball.
Sandburg was the longtime
Venice High varsity mentor,
racking up 372 wins. He was
inducted into the Venice
Sports Hall of Fame in 2004.
Dombroski coached the
VHS junior varsity for 13 years,
winning 200 games.
Now we'll see them apply
all that knowledge to softball.
Sandburg and Dombroski
will take over coaching the
Lady Indians varsity. The
announcement will become
official Tuesday.
The 2006 season begins in
late February.
The position became
vacant at the end of the 2005
season when veteran coach
Amy Kanter decided to take a
break.
Darrell Brandow will
remain the junior varsity
coach.
While we're on the subject
of new coaches, expect Scott
Hall to be named the new girls
varsity basketball coach at
VHS.
The position opened up a
few weeks ago when Joe
DiGiacomo shocked the
world by resigning.
Hall teaches at Lemon Bay
and has coached a number of
the VHS girls in AAU ball.

Tony Charles has been a
huge part of this year's Venice
High varsity football effort.
When he was slow to get up
following an extra point play
near the end of the first half of
Friday night's game at
Sarasota High, worst-case sce-
narios popped into the minds
of Indian fans.
What would Venice do if
they lost Charles?
He has truly been a warrior
this season.
Not only does he play every
snap at safety hitting like a
ton of bricks but he also'
gets a lot of lugs and yards at
running back.
Charles had ice on his right
knee. He did not play the sec-
ond half against the Sailors.
It was great relief to hear
the injury was not serious. At
least that's what Charles said.
And head coach Nick
Coleman seemed confident
the big guy would be OK to
play in next Friday's key dis-
trict game against Port
Charlotte.

Sophomore running back
Paul Costanzo played well
early in the season, but after
the Riverview game, he hasn't
been on the field.
Rested ,and healthy,
Costanzo was a definite bright
spot in Friday's game against
Sarasota. He had two excellent
kickoff returns and he was
extremely slinky and deceiv-
ingly tough running the ball.
Venice will need more of
that.
Also, Kiki Merzius played
like Tarzan in the second half
against the Sailors. If he can
keep that up, the Indians are
definitely much better for it.

Port Charlotte had an off
week. The other district oppo-
nent left on Venice's schedule
- Lakewood Ranch is
suddenly hot. The Mustangs
won their second straight 22-7
over Mariner. The. Indians can
take neither lightly. They must
bring their A game if they
want to make the playoffs.

Sarasota builds big lead, hangs on against Venice


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

It was a case of too much
Antwan Graham Friday night
for the Venice High football
team.
The pint-sized running
back stood tall for Sarasota
High Friday night, as he
rushed for three touchdowns
and 188 yards to lead the
Sailors to a 38-16 non-district
victory over the Indians.
Sarasota improved its
record to 6-1.
Venice (1-6) was lethargic
in the first half, falling behind
early and often. The deficit


was 12-0 after one quarter
and 26-0 at the half.
It wasn't just Graham the
Indian tacklers were missing.
Second string Devon
Thompson made the defense
look bad on the Sailors final
scoring drive of the first half.
It looked like more of the
same in the second half, as
Sailor quarterback Casey
Kelly threw a TD pass to make
it 32-0.
"We were as flat as any
team I've been associated
with," Venice coach Nick
Coleman said. "We missed
some tackles. The first to the
ball has got to wrap up, not go.


Venice players watch as the offense is on the field.


for the kill shot."
Somewhere, Venice found
spark and made a run at the
Sailors.
"We were down 26-0 (at
the half)," Coleman said. "We
could go out and slop around
like we did in the first half, or
suck it up and play Venice
football."
An 11-play drive covered
60 yards, and the Indians
were on the scoreboard late in
the third quarter. Austin
Carter grabbed a 24-yard pass
from Jimmy Laurie on a half-
back option for the touch-
down. Paul Costanzo grabbed
a pass from MattWickwire for
the two-point conversion.
The Venice defense made a
goal line stand on Sarasota.
The offense then put together
an impressive 99-yard scoring
drive.
With Tony Charles resting
a sore right knee the second
half, Costanzo and Kiki
Merzius picked up the beat.
Both were sparkplugs in the
long drive. Costanzo had two
carries for 26 yards. Merzius
had two carries for 32 yards.
Quarterback Matt Wickwire
played inspired ball, hitting
tight end Ilya Vasilevskiy
twice for 30 yards. Vasilevskiy
took an 11-yard pass from
Wickwire for the TD. Merzius
ran the conversion.
And it was 32-16 with 7:58
left in the game.
Venice pulled off a jail-
break onsides kick, as Austin
Carter recovered the ball at
the Sailor 45.
Suddenly, Sarasota
seemed within reach. A TD
and conversion would cut it
to a one-possession game.
An eight-yard pass from
Wickwire to Carter and two
five-yard runs by Merzius
took the ball to the 27.
However, the Sailor defense
tightened. Facing heavy pres-
sure, Wickwire misfired three
straight times and the Indians
turned the ball over on
downs.
Sarasota sealed the game
with a 73-yard drive aided by
two penalties against the
Indians. Graham broke free
on a 42-yard run to make it
38-16.
Venice still showed fight.
Costanzo had his second
big kickoff return of the night,
taking the ballto the Sailor 35.
A holding call brought it back
to the 47. Costanzo ripped off
a 13-yard gain to the 40.
Wickwire then fired long
down the right sidelines. The
flag flew on an obvious pass
interference against the
Sailors. The ball was inter-
cepted and Merzius delivered
a bone-rattling hit. Then


-" V Xi
4of-


Corner back Kyle Hagen breaks up a pass during Venice's loss
to Sarasota High Friday night to go 1 and 6 season.


another flag popped out for
celebration against Venice.
Costanzo fumbled on the
next play, and the night was
over.
On a whole, the Indian
running game was effective.
Merzius finished with 59
yards on eight carries.
Costanzo slipped for 57 yards
on eight attempts. Charles
had gained 34 yards on seven
carries before going out late
in the second quarter.
Wickwire completed nine
of 20 passes for 90 yards.


Carter had a big night receiv-
ing the ball, catching four
passes for 50 yards.
Vasilevskiy had three grabs. ;,
Venice must extract the
positive and move on. This
coming Friday night is a huge
Class 5A District 11 game
against Port Charlotte. It is
must-win for the the Indians.
Venice is 1-1 and Port is 0-1.
"We didn't quit," Coleman
said. "We'll build on the sec-
ond half."
And hope nothing like the
first half ever surfaces again.

Venice High's Kyle Brunette breaks from the start of the boys
varsity race at the Manasota Invitational Cross Country Meet
held Saturday at Oscar Scherer State Park. Brunette finished
sixth in the event.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


As the cross country sea-
son progresses, Kyle Brunette
keeps getting faster and
faster.
The Venice High senior ran
a personal best 17 minutes,
21 seconds over the 5K course


through the woods at Oscar
Scherer State Park Saturday
morning.
That time enabled him to
place sixth among 99 boys in
the varsity race at the
Manasota Invitational.
His performance helped
Venice finish 10th in team
points. Fourteen schools


competed.
Brunette was second the
previous week at the
Charlotte Invitational, run-
ning a 17:31.
"It's horrible weather,"
Brunette said of Saturday
morning's run. "It's so humid.
I'm going to call my brother
(Derek) and tell him that I
beat his best time."
Derek ran cross country
and wrestled atVHS, graduat-
ing in 2002.
Other Venice finishes
Saturday had Wade Consul in
23rd, Max Brandow in 62nd
and Jake Skully in 94th.
The winning time was
16:01 recorded by Steven Bell
of Land 'O Lakes.
Sickles won boys team
competition followed by
Lakewood Ranch, Riverview,
Sarasota and Land 'O Lakes.
The Venice girls team
placed sixth out of 10 teams.
The Lady Indians were with-
out two big guns seniors
Stephanie Korszen and
Genna Jones who were tak-
ing SATs.


Nevertheless, Lady Indian
coach Brenda Clark was
pleased with the perfor-
mances of the girls who ran
Saturday.
They were bunched nicely.
The pride and joy of Long
Island Alex Natiss led
the Lady Indian charge with a
23rd place finish in 22:26. It
was her best time in Florida.
Erin McCullough regis-
tered a personal best 22:45,
which put her 27th in the 74-
girl field. Katie Pfost was 32nd
in 23:18.
Chelsea Rose was off form,
running out of gas over the
final third of the race. She
ended up 34th in 23:29.
"She didn't eat enough,"
Clark deducted.
Sarah Britton ran a person-
al best 23:34. Kim Pinkerton
was up at 24:47.
Riverview's Ocean Cohen
captured the girls race in
19:56.
Barron Collier won the

OUR VIEW



Name-calling isn't winning any converts


s we see it, there are two general schools
of thought on growth, which for our
purposes today includes building
heights. One is that Venice should have a
tight, absolute limit on growth and heights,
while the other is that growth and taller
buildings are appropriate in at least some
parts of the city, if not all over.
We don't know how many people fall into
each camp, but we do knowthat manypeople
haven't taken a firm position on the issues.
And we also know that both sides are spend-
ing too much time calling each other names
and not enough educating their undecided
fellow residents about issues that city councils
will be considering for years to come.
Both the opponents and proponents of
growth claim:;t 'represent the majority of
Venetians. We'd bet they're both wrong, and
that the number of people who are uncertain
or who have mixed feelings are the true
majority.


Which means there are a lot of people out
there who could be won over so that one side
or the other could legitimately maintain it is
in the majority. But neither side seems to be
nearly as interested in advancing factual
arguments for its position as in trying to dis-
credit the other side as being in the pocket of
greedy developers (the pro-growth folks) or
disgruntled dinosaurs who are out of touch
(the anti-growth crowd).
Unfortunately, this is what passes for
political debate these days.
SIt doesn't really matter whether someone
has lived in Venice for 50 years or 50 days. It
doesn't really matter whether someone lives
here year-round or part-time. It doesn't real-
ly matter whether someone lives in a 1960s
Florida ranch or a 2005 Waterford condo-:
minium.
What matters is whether all of the people
who live or own property in Venice have the
information they need in order to be able to


let their representatives know what their
desires are.
Though we've printed numerous stories
and tried to stake out a reasoned, fact-based
position of our own, we're concerned that the
facts have gotten lost among crisscrossing
allegations of profiteering and Stone-Age
thinking (yes, some of those have appeared
in these pages).
Let's face it: There are positives and nega-
tives on both sides.
Had Venice not grown over the years, the
city likely would have stagnated and the
downtown area everyone finds so quaint
would be nothing but boarded-up shops.
Remember, Venice has had several points
in its history when the city's future was in
doubt. Each time the decision of an "out-
sider" the U.S. Army Air Corps, Kentucky
Military Institute, Ringling Bros. and Barnum
& Bailey Circus to make Venice its home
aided in the city's rebirth.


But we see the downside of growth every
day. Because Venice has some geographical
constraints, traffic congestion has increas-
ingly become a problem over the years.
Construction to accommodate all the people
who want to live in our paradise has to go out
- giving us sprawl-- or up giving us mid-
rise buildings. Neither is particularly attrac-
tive.
If politics is truly the art of compromise,
we need to find some middle ground
between those who would put Venice in a
time capsule and those who would throw the
door open to anything short of actual sky-
scrapers. To do that will require both sides to
stop obsessing about who their opponents
are and focus on what their opponents' con-
cerns are, because they are shared by the
undecideds.
Pro-growthers and anti-growthers take
note: If you have the strength of your convic-
tions, talk about them for a change.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


No downside to drilling in Gulf


Editor:
Your continued backing of no offshore drilling in the gulf is
filled with misinformation and will do nothing to aid this coun-
try. '
There is nothing "pristine" or "fragile" about Florida's coast-
line not shared by the other four states bordering on the ener-
gy-producing gulf.
:Your paper has continually noted beach pollution here that
is caused by fecal bacteria from onshore defecation, so let's ban
'that.
I live on the beach and look out my windows on the gulf. All
the wells I have observed are over the horizon and cannot be
seen from the shoreline.
Some Florida House members claim drilling represents a
catastrophic risk. I challenge them to name one catastrophic
occurrence in the U.S. part of the gulf.
As of the end of June, 44,528 wells have been drilled in the
gulf. If there were significant pollution, the media would have
picked up on it.
Every well is required to have a down-hole safety valve that
shuts off the well in case the wellhead or platform is lost.
A rare blowout of a natural gas well will not pollute. The gas
can condense and evaporate into the atmosphere.
The men and women who run the 135 drilling rigs and the
4,000 producing platforms in the western gulf know their busi-
ness.
Florida had better begin exploiting its nonpolluting natural
gas resources or it may find itself at the end of a queue when
supplies become shon..
After Floridians get used to the industry, the jobs and the
increased fish harvest, they may want to go after the oil.

LET 'EM HAVE IT! ARE YOU WORRIED BOUT CONTRACTING THE BIRD FLU?
CALL US AT 207-1111.


Can you say anything besides 'No'?


Modernize. I'm tired of the naysayers in Venice. Other than
worry as to what has happened to the city and why a little
1,300-square-foot home on the west side of the ditch is worth
half a million dollars, they worry about heights. The reason the
real estate on the island has gone up is people like Mike Miller,
who have expanded the island and brought people in. Some of
the older citizens want to turn the clock back to the days before
cars, which is not possible. Instead of worrying about height,
they should worry about density. That's the way they should
approach it, rather than putting height limits. Where Miller
wants to put his homes is at the edges of the city inland, just by
the beginning of the ditch. That will not clog up the rest of the
so-called island. People are not thinking and are getting hys-
terical. A lot of old people did not know better and know the
difference. It's time they woke up and modernized somewhat.


Learn the language. I just
finished reading a column by
Joe Georgianni. Makes me
think of my old days. My
mother and father both came
from Finland and didn't speak
a word of English and they
learned from us kids. My hus-
band's people came from Italy.
When I met his father he was
probably in his 80s and I
thought I'd try to learn some
Italian and surprise him. I tried
to say, "Would you like a cup of
coffee?" He gave me a mean,
dirty look and he says what are
you saying, slapped his hands
together and he said, "I'm
American, you talk American
to me!" And I think that's the
last words he said to me. He
was so proud to be an
American that he was highly
insulted I would even try to
speak Italian to him. So I think
there's a lot of newcomers to
this country that can leam just
by listening to their kids. And
now that I'm older, I love to go
to classes. I've taken Spanish
and German, and I think for-
eign classes are interesting. It's
fun, give it a try.
Absolutely not. Snowbirds
should not get a reduced rate
on water, sewer and garbage
while they're out of town,
absolutely not. That would
become such a nightmare.
Also, Mr. Vedder a few
columns back indicated that
the Realtors were the ones dri-
ving up the prices of all the
homes. And now all of a sud-
den he writes how he has a
new home that he bought for
investment. Did we miss
something? Has. Bob Vedder
become a Realtor?
Unwise spending. As a
teacher, I'm appalled at the
lack of wisdom in spending
that the school board is provid-
ing to the students of Sarasota
County. There are numerous
specialists with more experi-
ence or degrees taking up
space in classrooms. We are
being told by The Landings
where we should be teaching
in the classroom. They are a
bunch of control freaks now.
It's getting worse and worse
each year. The Landings is full
of employees; there's not
enough space for them. If you
look at our test scores, we're
not doing better than
Charlotte County, which has
suffered hurricanes and they


don't have a tax referendum.
So, we are just not spending
money wisely, and I am voting
no on the referendum.
Go back. We just got back
from two months up North
and we're so surprised at the
change in your TV guide. I
hope you go back to the old
one; it was great. And I'd like to
know why hasn't the newspa-
per run the addresses. of the
Red Cross and the Salvation
Army for the people who want
to help out the hurricane vic-
tims.
EDITOR'S NOTE: We have,
repeatedly, but not in every issue.
New chief. I've read your
editorial, "A change at the top."
Problems shouldn't await the
chief's police retirement. I
would like to add to that. The
Venice Police Department's
problems still exist. City
Manager Marty Black hasn't
solved anything. Keeping
Hanks as chief until March
2006 .is a big mistake and will
cause more frustration in the
department. Hanks should
serve in a lesser capacity and
the city manager should
assign Deputy Chief Dan
McGoogan to run the depart-
ment. He is highly respected,
trusted, educated and well
liked by everyone. Having
McGoogan fill in as chief
would boost the morale of the
department and help prove
him worthy of becoming a top
contender for the position of
chief of police. In all fairness,
the city manager should make
these changes now and make
his final decision at a later
date. As far as theVenice crime
rate as you reported, it's been
high over the past years. And
all this clearance and that
should be given credit to
patrol and division that have
worked hard to keep it that
way. Case closure has always
been a high priority through
the years. No one individual
can take credit for it.
Special needs. I am a very
special needs person and have
been for four years. When a
hurricane came through we
were taken to theVenice hospi-
tal, which was great, it was
super because we needed it.
Now, we are no longer allowed
to go into this hospital. We
have got to be trucked, parked
or bused to other cities for our
special needs. Now this, to me,

for the city of Venice, it hurts
me, very much for what is
going on. I think all these older
people better get on the ball
and have something to say
about it.
Poking fun. Recently I was
watching "The O'Reilly" Factor
on one of the news stations. I
don't normally agree with
everything the man has to say,
but he does bring up a few
good points. Recently, there
were several comments made
about some of the things the
foreign countries are .saying
about the way Hurricane
Katrina was handled.
Everybody can agree mistakes
were made, but these coun-
tries were actually poking fun
of the Americans and the
scores of people that have died
because of the hurricane. And
these are countries like
Germany and France, who we
buy imported goods from.
There's cars. There's wine,
clothes. The New York scene
goes crazy over French fashion
designers.. We're putting
money in these foreign banks
and yet these people, are rip-
ping apart the way ,the
Americans handled the situa-
tion and not in a constructive
way, but in afun way. I think it's
a shame.
Trial marriages. About the
Renee Zellweger-Chesney
divorce after four months. You
talk about your laugh at the
sanctity of marriage. The gross
joke that went on when these
people exchangedvows for life.
Then you have an administra-
tion that still thinks that gay
marriage is wrong after two
men or two women can spend
20 and 30 years together. I
think the priorities are in the
wrong place. I think situations
like Zellweger and Chesney
should not be recognized as
marriage. I think that when
people get married in
Hollywood it should be maybe
on a 12-month trial period
before anything happens. If
we're going to talk about the
sanctity of marriage, I guess
the joke's on the church again.

Bush cut money
to improve levees
Editor:
Fact: on June 8, 2004,
Walter Maestri, emergency
management chief for
Jefferson Parish said: "It
appears the money for the
levees in New Orleans has
been moved in the presi-
deht's budget to handle
homeland security and the
war" in Iraq."
Fact: In June 2005, Bush
cut $71.2 million from the


New Orleans Corp of
Engineers' budget, causing
scheduled hurricane and
flood projects to be canceled.
Fact: Katrina had an eye
50 miles wide with tropical
storm winds extending 205
miles east of New Orleans to
the Florida Panhandle, a
storm surge of 20-25-feet
plus 15-foot waves and then
the levees broke.
No wonder New Orleans
was so devastated, but was it
just Katrina or did Bush help?
Then Bush arrived, six days
late and dollars short.
But "he had a good time
there on a prior visit."
And the list goes on; it just
doesn't stop.
Fact: In 1996 when
Clinton was in office the fed-
eral debt was $5.95 billion. As
of Sept. 15-it is $8 trillion.
Fact: George Sr. set the


example for Junior repeat
a lie enough times from all
sources and they (the peo-
ple.) will believe it.
Fact: G.W. Bush will be out
of office in 2008.
Fact: Jeb Bush stands in
the wings waiting to give us
more of the Bush leadership
and deceit.
Fact: Since Sept. 11 Bush
has spent more time away
from the White House than
any other president in histo-
ry, and it costs a minimum of
$1 million a day for Air Force

Pat Hobbs, who is with the
Triangle Inn Association,
passed on that there are his-
toric city tours for a few
months of the season
(January, February and
March). There were a total of
nine one-hour tours this year,
and over the years they have
netted the association $9,000.
My thoughts were more
directed toward something
on a regular basis, but it is
good to know you can there
are some tours available.

that we have freedom of

didn't exceed the demand.


The Women's Sertoma
Club is planning once again a
fabulous Sun Fiesta, starting
Friday, Oct. 21. The ladies will
not only have the usual
parade and crafts booths
(both fully reserved), but they
have some new events. One is
a baby crawl, in which any
child who can't walk and has
that competitive spirit can
compete what a potential
resume boost.
There is also for the
Toddler's Iot for young ones
up to 3. On Sunday they also
will have Doggie Doings to
show off pretty dogs. They will
be judged for best dressed,
cutest, longest hair and the
one that looks most like its
owner.
If you would like to learn
more or enter your star ath-
lete or dog, contact Sheila
Kaufer at the Jacaranda
Library.

Charles Hines has started

enue plan for the Parks
Department which this could
be a part of. Of course, we
have only known for a year
that it would be vacant at this
time.
The county would like to
have a tenant related to the
trail maybe bicycle, roller
blade and skateboard rentals,
maybe light foods and ice
cream, maybe some history. It
might have a city tour bus
leave from there.
In any case, the trail on
that side will not be ready for
many months at best, so I
suppose that is why there's no
rush. But just knowing how
long an RFP takes, we should
be moving on this.
Speaking of trails, some-
one dropped off some trail
maps for the Dayton and
Xenia, Ohio, area. It is obvious
that area really promotes its
bike paths, an asset we are
building.

The United Way is off to
another great year. It just
completed a golf tournament
that raised more than
$15,000, thanks to the chair-
manship of Brent Pinkerton
and Evan Duke. That goes to
the United Way Foundation,
established to fund the
agency itself so that all contri-
butions are put to the 24 orga-
nizations it supports.
Publix has completed its
campaign, and as always has
done an incredible job. It has
contributed more than
$250,000 to the 2006 cam-
paign that is now under way.

we received two awards, two


One of the ideas that was
given to a group of publishers
at a conference last week was
one that a newspaper in
California does: photograph
something that needs to get
fixed. It might be a pothole,
maybe a building that needs
tearing down or painting,
maybe bad signs for the roads
- even landscaping prob-
lems like bushes you can't see
around when driving.
You might have some in
mind. Feel free to pass them
on.
One of mine is awnings
that fade, then fray, turn black
or white and some times fall,
apart. The awnings at the
Splash building fit that
description.

Jeanne Cozad-Oliver just

Oct. 10 is the fifth annual 'Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day'


STAFF REPORT

The Florida Department of
Transportation is sponsoring
the fifth annual "Put the
Brakes on Fatalities Day" on
Oct. 10, to encourage the
public to take a greater stand
in keeping themselves and
their loved ones from becom-
ing a vehicular crash fatality.
The goal is to unite Florida
in achieving one full day of
zero traffic deaths by encour-
aging safer behavior and
actions and by promoting
safer roadways.
"Whether as a driver, pas-
senger, pedestrian or cyclist,
by working together in a con-
certed effort, we can make a


difference to stop these
tragedies on Florida's roads,"
said FDOT Secretary Denver
Stutler. "Drive as if your life
depends on it."
A total of 24,109 people
died on Florida's highways
from 1997 through 2004.
Nationwide, 76 percent of all
fatal crashes occur on two-
lane roads while only 14 per-
cent of crashes occur on
roads with four or more lanes.
In Florida, 33 percent of
major roads, excluding the
interstate, are two lanes.
Safer driving behaviors
Of the motor vehicle occu-
pants killed in traffic crashes
during 2004 in Florida, 62


percent were not using safety
equipment.
In addition, 69 percent of
children ages 1 to 17 years old
who were killed in traffic
crashes in Florida were not
using safety equipment.
Alcohol-related crashes in
Florida account for nearly 34
percent of all traffic fatalities.
.Nearly 31. percent of all
traffic fatalities in Florida dur-
ing 2004 were pedestrians,
bicycle drivers and motorcy-
cle drivers.
Deaths and injuries on
Florida's highways cost more
than $14 billion annually.
Every year, Americans
travel nearly 2.8 trillion miles
in the more than 200. million


registered vehicles on U.S.
roads. Proper vehicle mainte-
nance plays an important
role in reducing crashes:
Checkyour tires for prop-
er inflation pressure, tread
wear and alignment.
Replace worn windshield
wipers.
If your vehicle has
antilock brakes, operate them
correctly by "stomping and
steering" rather than pump-
ing them.
If you are buying a vehi-
cle, consider safety devices
and safety ratings as a top pri-
ority.
Check out the National
Highway Traffic Safety
Administration Web site at


www.nhsta.gov for vehicle
safety ratings.

and information, log on to the
Put The Brakes On Fatalities
Day Web site at brakeson
fatalites.org.

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
Sbone which serves as a cushion and keeps thing "natural".

of the house and the additional bedrooms
and baths on the other side, separated by
the main living space, which includes a
formal dining room, living room, kitchen
and family room. An additional dining area
separates the kitchen and family room,.
while facilitating entertaining in the
generally open floor plan.
Adding to the kitchen's storage and work
space is a center island and appliance


garage. Above cabinet lighting adds to the
room's ambiance, while enhancing displays
of the owners' collections above the cabi-
nets. A built-in desk facilitates home office
chores and a bar and built-in %%ine rack
adds functionality for entertaining.
Among a lengthy list of home upgrades
are a built-in central vacuum system,
security systems and stereo speakers
throughout the house.
Those using the home's heated pool.and
spa area enjoy panoramic views of the lake
that seems to surround the professionally
landscaped lot. Also within view are parts of


the Links Golf Course. Three of the four
sliding doors leading to the lanai complete-
ly pocket, allowing full view of the vista
from within.
The front of the house faces a cul de sac
on Coral Creek Place, a road near the center
of the community. That location affords
maximum privacy and minimum traffic.
All the rooms are generously sized, with
the smallest bedroom measuring 13 by 14
feet and the master bedroom measuring 16
by 23 feet. Cathedral and tray ceilings add
additional volume to the roomy interior.

From page 2
lender about,

Special forbearance:
Your lender may be able
to arrange a repayment
plan based on your new
financial situation and may
even provide for a tempo-
rary reduction or suspension
of your mortgage pay-
ments,
You may qualify for this if
you've recently had a
reduction in income or an
increase in living expenses,
But you'll have to furnish
information to your lender to
show that you would be
able to meet the require-
ments of the new payment
plan,


Mortgage modification:
You may be able to
refinance the debt or
extend the term of your
mortgage. This may help
you catch up by reducing
the monthly payments to a
more affordable level.

Partial claim:
If your loan is insured by
the FHA, your lender may
' be able to work with you to
obtain a one-time payment
from the FHA insurance fund
to bring your mortgage
current, You may qualify if


your loan is at least four
months delinquent but no
more than 12 months late
and you're able to begin
making full mortgage
payments.

Preforeclosure sale:
This will allow you to avoid
foreclosure by selling your
property for an amount less
than the amount necessary
to pay off'your mortgage
loan, You may qualify if the
loan is at least two months
delinquent, you're able to
sell your house within three
to five months, and a new
appraisal shows that the
value of your home meets
HUD program guidelines,

Deed in lieu of foreclosure:
As a last resort, the lender
may be willing to take back
your home and sell it, That
won't save your home, but it
wouldn't be as damaging
to your credit rating as a
foreclosure,

Other resources:
Homeowners should -
contact a HUD-approved
housing counseling agency,
You can find the one
nearest you by calling toll-
free 1-800-569-4287.
The agencies have
information on services and
programs offered by
government agencies, as
well as private and commu-


0 9


nity organizations that can
help, The services are usually
free.
HUD's Web site -
www.hud.gov/foreclosure/in
dexcfm has information
on how to avoid foreclo-
sure.

What not to do:
If you're having difficulty
paying your mortgage, .
don't let scam artists capi-
talize on your distress, The
most prevalent scheme is
what's called "equity
skimming." A "buyer"
approaches you, offering to
bail you out of financial
trouble by promising to pay
off your mortgage or give
you an amount of money
when the property is sold,
The foreclosure rescue
scams come in three types:

Phantom help:
. The "rescuer" charges
outrageous fees either for
phone calls and paperwork
the homeowner could have
easily performed, or on a
promise of better represen-
tation that never occurs,
"In either event, the
homeowner is usually left
without enough assistance
to actually save the home
but with little or no time left
to prevent this grievous loss
by the time she or he
realizes it" according to a
recent report .by the Nation-


- 4... -


T


- o


- a - -


al Consumer Law Center in
Boston,

Bailout:
This scenario includes
various schemes under
which a homeowner
surrenders title to the house,
believing that he or she will
be able to rent the home
and buy it back in the next
few years.
Scamsters sometimes tell
the homeowner that giving
up the title is necessary so
that someone with a better
credit rating can get new
financing to prevent foreclo-
sure.
However, the terms of
those,deals are so onerous
that a buyback becomes
impossible.

Bait-and-switch:
This is where a homeown-
er doesn't realize that he or
she is surrendering owner-
ship of the home.
"Many homeowners later
insist that they believed they
were only signing docu-
ments for a new loan to
make the mortgage cur-
rent," according to the
consumer law center report,
"Many also say they had
made it quite clear they
had no intention of selling or
giving up their home to
anyone.,"

Dzien Dobry

Dana Calamaras and I just
returned from a week in Po-
land confirming the traditions
of our Polish Heritage. We
experienced delicious food
like nieleznicki, lody and one
of our favorites, piwo z mio-
dym, which is warm beer with
honey.
In Krakow we learned the
town is facing the problem of
builders wanting to build
more than four stories and
townspeople not wanting to
lose the charm of traditional
three-story buildings.
I discovered my father's
name on one of the plaques at
a famous castle. Stanislaw
Wojciechowski was a popular
and revered Polish politician.
During our visit, everyone
in Poland was celebrating
their women's volleyball team
winning the European cham-
pionship.
Congratulations
Belated happy birthday to
Dorothy Korwek, whose pas-
sion is preserving Venice his-
tory. Dorothy is director of the
Venice Archives at the Triangle
Inn. If you need to know any-
thing aboutVenice,.Dorothy is
your source.
Happy 50th wedding anni-
versary to Rich and Terri Wil-
son. They celebrated with
their family at Kingston Plan-
tation in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Also celebrating their 50th
wedding anniversary are Lor-
en R. and Rosemary Brown
Wolter. The couple spent a
weekend at a resort counting
their blessings with family.
Judy. Smith, Roxanne
Compton, Allison Moore, Janet
Sheets, Linda Florenzie, Kristin
Wise and Josiah Reed recently
won prizes at an ice cream party
at Venice Regional Nledical
Center for employees with per-
fect attendance for diree
months in a row.
Around town
Barry Lucibello at Norma
Jean's Bar and Grill wants to
invite football fans to his place
to enjoy all the games, great
food and drinks. Barry claims
to have the best hamburgers
and Friday fish fry in town.
Venice Little Theatre wel-
comes Amy Watson and Nick
Hartman to their staff. Amy is
the new customer service
manager and Nick is the assis-
tant. We look forward to meet-
ing them.
Sad news
When Rosemary Fisher left
Venice many of us were heart-
broken. Rosemary and her
husband moved north to be
closer to family. Rosemary's
husband died shortly after the
move and I know everyone
joins me in extending to this
terrific lady our love and sym-
pathy
Featured on TV

Shout Fest 2005 isn't your
typical music event.
With wvo stages and a bat-
te for local bands it presents
an opportunity for local talent
to get a crack at being signed
;and for youth to get out to a
show.
The festival, which takes
place at the Venice Municipal
Airport on Saturday Oct. 15, is
a combination of Christian
and popular music groups,
food and games, including a
bungee jump. an electric bull,,
jousting and a Titanic slide.
Three of the bands per-
forming at the festival are
Grits, Seventh Day Slumber
and Krystal Meyers. Each of
these artists are there to cele-
brate and entertain. The mes-
sage will come when it has to.
"We are just going ir.ing to
reach people wherever we
can with the Shout Fest
thing," said Coffee, a member
of the hip-hop duo, Grits. "We
have fun doing what we love."
_ _.._-.. :; ... _. ..._. .~


Grits
Grits is a duo of two hip-
hop artists: Coffee, from
Atlanta, Ga., and Bonafide, an
emcee from Jacksonville, Fla.
They are one of the many
bands to participate, al-
though they aren't there to
preach to anybody. The duo,
from Nashville, should be one
of die more energetic bands
to perform at the festival.
They have a no-nonsense
approach to what they do -
music. They believe in giving
people music and entertain-:
ment that speaks for itself.
"There's a.lot of energy,"
Coffee said. "Good songs,
good energy and we try to
give a great performance. We
have moments! every now
and then, but it ain't about
getting in front of people and
preaching. We do if \e feel the
need, but don't get it twisted.
We're not using music to
sneak into the world, it's 21/7
for us. It's hot a Trojan horse.
We're uplifting people."
Grits has been pa-ing their
dues for nine years and being
on the Shout Fest tour is


where they like to be, even
though the bus never seems
to stop.
"We tour pretty much non-
stop," Coffee said. "Ifwe're not
on the road we're recording."
Grits is also starting their
owin label called 5e entertain-
ment and has their own
clothing line, due- out in
spring 2006.
V"We just wanted a name
that represented us," Coffee
said. "What better name be-
ing from Nashville. It's a
lifestyle for me.
"It's cool being out with a
good bunch of people. For the
most part. We need to enter-
tain people. We need to make
sure they have a good time."
Grits doesn't plan on bor-
ing any audiences with
preachy diatribes especial-
ly to a youthful crowd.
S "They've heard the same
thing before," he said. "We're
offering something more
than they get at church."
S Grits has shared the stage
with OutKast, Jay-Z, Nappy
Roots, Ice Cube, DJ Shadow,
De La Soul, A Tribe Called
Quest, Goodie Mob, and
Monica to name a few.
Seventh Day Slumber
Another band that plays a
'big part in the festival is
Seventh Day Slumber and its
frontman, Joseph Rojas.
"I'm the speaker for the
show," Rojas said. "I'll share a
little bit about my life and
where I'm at now. I'll be shar-
ing the hope."
SDS is a modern rock
band, but with a positive
message.
"There's a lot of music
there and we want the people
to have a great time," Rojas
said. "I'll just share my heart.
I'm a convicted felon. I was
looking at 10 years in prison."
Rojas was able to turn his
life around, mainly because
he said he found that having
faith is something worth liv-
ing for.
"Now I'm a husband," Ro-
jas said. "I overdosed on co-
caine and I gave my life. I was
trying to commit suicide. I
didn't believe in God. The
back of the ambulance is
where I gave my life.'
Rojas has played in a lot of
bands that played "a lot of
garbage and a lot of trash,"
according to Rojas.
"I, think it's. a very impor-
tant for people that are hurt-
ing," he said. "Maybe you've
got a son or daughter who has
problems and they just need
hope. Lives are being chang-
ed every time we put these
things on. We're seeing a lot of
lives changed."
Rojas believes the beauty
of the festival is that there is
something for everybody -
Sgospel, rap, adult contempo-
rary all styles of music.

2B VENICE GONDOLIER SUNCO


CAROL MOZIK
GARDENING COLUMNIST

I always believed it, but
when I saw the headline in
Florida Gardening magazine,
I knew it wasn't my imagina-
tion. "Tropicals are taking the
country by storm." I remem-
ber as a child my horticult-
ure -teacher showing us a
bromeliad for the first time.
The "urn plant" had its own
little reservoir (shaped like a
rosette) of water to use
when needed. The varieties
seemed to be limited then,
flowers short lived and pop-
ular plants were pink and
red. I don't ever remember
seeing the yellow blooms on
hybridized bromeliads that
are so popular today. We
always grew it as a house-
plant up north. Nowadays,
there are thousands of dif-
ferent spectacular varieties,
large and small, perfect for
our tropical environment.
Other bromeliads in the
same family are pineapples,


airplants and Spanish moss.
Lots of bromeliads grow in
full sun, but I have seen
even more spectacular colors
do very well in shade. My
favorites have deep maroon
foliage. Plants are propa-
gated by the pups it pro-
duces. Plant in groups of at
least three or more for maxi-
mum color. Next week I have
plans to visit a grower in
Venice who specializes in
just bromeliads. I hear it is a
spectacular show.
October activities ... I
have spotted a few vegetable
gardens. Tomatoes and pep-
pers are shooting up, but
look a little spindly. A visitor
in the office today brought
to mind an earth box or
grow box for tomatoes and
peppers. I have always
wanted to try one of these,
so a couple of us are going
to hunt some down and
experiment. What I would
do for one of those big,
acidy, beefsteak tomatoes of
yesteryear. One slice would
cover a whole slice of bread
for a decadent BLT.

Can't have just one CHIP


STAFF REPORT


People with Medicare in
Florida will be able to get
prescription drug coverage
in January, through their
choice of either a newly ap-
proved stand-alone prescrip-
tion drug plan that works with
traditional Medicare, or a
Medicare Advantage plan that
offers drug coverage
and other benefits, the Cen-
ters for Medicare & Medicaid
Services (CMS) announced
today.
In Florida, 18 organiza-
tions will offer stand-alone
prescription drug plans, in-
cluding four with premiums
of less than $20 a month.
People with Medicare -in
Florida can also get drug
coverage with additional
benefits and even lower total
out-of-pocket costs by en-
rolling in Medicare Advantage
plans. The Medicare
Advantage options include
two new statewide PPO
plans and in 2006, 23 Medi-
care Advantage organiza-
tions will provide prescription
drug coverage for no addi-
tional cost.
"Thanks to the range of
options available, everyone
in Medicare who lives in
Florida will be able to choose
a prescription drug plan that
addresses their individual
concerns about cost, cover-
age and convenience,"
Health and Human Services
Secretary Mike Leavitt said.
"For premiums that are in
many cases much lower than
expected, seniors will be able
to get Medicare-approved
prescription drug coverage
that will help protect their
health as well as their sav-
ings."
Prescription drug cover-
age will be available to
everyone in Medicare, re-
gardless of their income or
how they get their Medicare
coverage. Extra assistance is
available to those with limit-
ed incomes and resources.
Of the organizations offering
drug coverage in Florida, six
will have prescription drug
plans available with no pre-
mium to beneficiaries who
qualiffor that extra help.
"Today CMS notified


629-8256
or
483-4848
A division of Sun Coast Media Group, nc
Publishers of the Sun Herald Newspapers.


plans that have met all of
Medicare's standards and are
approved to compete to pro-
vide Medicare prescription
drug coverage," said CMS
Administrator Mark Mc-
Clellan M.D., Ph.D. "Plan
marketing will begin on
schedule on Oct. 1. As we
approach the start of enroll-
ment on Nov. 15, Medicare
will work with our partners
in Florida and around the
country to help people with
Medicare make their deci-
sions."
All plans approved in
Florida have met Medicare's
requirements for providing
access to medically necessary
drugs, including formulary
standards as well as standards
for access to convenient retail
pharmacies and to drugs in
nursing homes. All plans are
required to provide coverage
at least as good as Medicare's
standard coverage, which
pays on average 75 percent of
drug costs after a $250
deductible up to $2,250 in
total drug spending. The cov-
erage also pays approximate-
ly 95 percent after $3,600 in
out-of-pocket costs to'protect
against very high drug ex-
penses. This means that for
a monthly premium that is
lower than expected, Med-
icare would pay more than
half of a typical beneficiary's
drug costs, or more than
$1,100.
'As a result of the strong
competition in Florida, Med-
icare coverage will include
options that cost less and
also that provide coverage
that goes beyond Medicare's
standard benefit," Dr. Mc-
Clellan said. "With better
opportunities to save and to
get the coverage that works
for you, it's about time to
start thinking about how
you or someone you care
about can take advantage of
the new coverage."
Everyone who cares about
someone in Medicare can
also help, Secretary Leavitt
and Dr. McClellan empha-
sized. A guide on how to talk
about the prescription drug


coverage will be included in
the September 25 edition of
Parade magazine, including
a call for families to discuss
the drug coverage as they
gather the day after Thanks-
giving.
"Any time is a good time
to talk about Medicare's drug
coverage, but we'd like to
create a national conversa-
tion at a time when a lot of
people gather with family
and friends and just catch
up on their lives," Secretary
Leavitt said.
"Take a few minutes to
talk about Medicare's drug
coverage it could change
the life of someone you love,"
Dr. McClellan said. "We will
use the detailed information
on drug plans that will be
available in the weeks ahead
to help every Medicare ben-
eficiary choose a plan that is
a good fit."
. More information to help
guide these conversations
will be published in the
coming weeks. In early
October, the Medicare & You
2006 handbook will be mail-
ed to every Medicare house-
hold. Beneficiaries with cov-
erage now, for example from
a former employer, should
also get information by Nov.
15 on how that coverage will
work with Medicare's new
benefits.
Beginning in mid-Octob-
er, Medicare's Web site,
medicare.gov,. and its 24-
hour toll-free number, (800)
MEDICARE (800) 633-4227,
will also have specific infor-
mation available to help
beneficiaries find the drug
coverage that suits their
needs.
To get a fit that works for
them, beneficiaries should
make a note of any current
drug coverage, their pre-
scription drugs and their
preferences about pharma-
cies or additional coverage.
Medicare beneficiaries in
Florida can also get personal-
ized, local assistance by call-
ing Serving Health Insurance
Needs of Elders at (800) 963-
5337.

WORDS WORTH
HEARING



S, .


By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist


Q. My mother was recently
fit with two, digital hearing
aids but was never given'
any testing to determine if
they are working right.
Isn't some follow up testing
required?
A. There are numerous post
fitting tests which should be
performed and are part of the
verification process. To what
extent these tests are
performed depends on who
fit the hearing aid initially.
Most quality audiology
clinics perform two sets of
verification tests, objective
and subjective. Objective
testing consists of performing
real earm measurements in
order to record the response
of the hearing aid at various
input levels. If real ear
measurements are not
obtained, there is no way to
insure the programming of
the instrument is appropriate
for the patient's hearing loss.
Subject testing is when a
patient is asked' to identify
different words and sounds
with their hearing aids on and
set appropriately. These tests
are conducted in quiet and
noisy environments to
measure how well a patient
can hear in various
surroundings. If your mother
purchased her instruments
from a quality clinic, these
tests were performed and you
are entitled to a copy of the
results. If these tests were not
performed then your mother
needs to be seen by the
Audiologist at Woodmere
Hearing & Balance Centers
as soon a possible'at 492-
4327 to insure that the
instrument she has purchased
is the correct solution to her
hearing problem and will be
able to serve her needs into
the future.

FRESH AIR


Manatees offer



a lesson in humanity


Second graders in a New
York classroom in forest Hills
are busy building skills in
reading, writing, nath and
character. Their teacher,
Michele Manos, believes that
including manatees and
other animals in the curricu-
lum can instill and foster a
sense of compassion and
empathy in her young stu-
dents. "Animals can teach
children about parenting
skills and social responsibili-
ty," said Manos. "I realize my
approach has been successful
because former students con-
tinue to visit me to thank me
for helping them learn about
caring for animals as a first
step toward learning to care
for others, and how this has
further enriched their rela-
tionships with humans."
Manos, who has taught
second grade at the Kew-
Forest School for 40 years,
weaves messages about
respect toward animals into
everything she teaches. She
works on various projects
with her students to help an
animal shelter on Long Island
and the endangered mana-
tees in Florida. Manos first
heard about Save the
Manatee Club in 1993, when
she spotted manatees in the
bayou near herFlorida home
in Tarpon Springs. As she
started researching manatees
and learned of their plight
from the Club, she decided to
incorporate their conserva-
tion efforts into her curricu-
lum. Since then, each of her
classes has "adopted" two dif-
ferent manatees each year
from Save the Manatee Club's


"Adopt-A-Manatee" program.
"When I realized how
interested and excited my
students were about the
manatees, I used their enthu-
siasm as a springboard for
them to create:their own orig-
inal manatee poems," she
explained. Manos binds the
book of poems, which also
features a manatee drawing
with each student's poem,
and distributes the book at
the school's manuall "Special
Visitor's Day' at the end of
each school fear. A copy is
also sent to Skve the Manatee
Club, which displays the book
at various mmatee festivals
and events. "The poems are
so endearing and thought-
ful," said Janice Nearing, Save
the Manatee lub Director of
Public Relatiols. "Many festi-
val-goers stopto look through
this special )ook and often
comment or the poems, or
chuckle at s)me of the cute
manatee dcwings. I like to
tell people hat these are the
future Robert Frosts and
Picassos tom Ms. Manos'
class in N&vYork."
Manos'follows the Club's
conservation activities close-
ly. "Ther intervention on
behalf &f the manatees has
been tirless, and their perse-
verand and devotion is
remarkable in the face of
many obstacles," she said.
"We ian help by educating
our puth as to the benefits of
saving these gentle giants, by
priding financial help and
byiencouraging our politi-
cins to pass legislation that
vyl assist the Club in its
efforts to save our manatees.


In the end, the survival of the
manatees is truly a fight for
our human survival. It is my
hope that this cause will be
embraced in other class-
rooms across the nation."
Manatee class adoptions
from Save the Manatee Club
are $20. Each adoption
includes a certificate, a photo
and life history of a real man-
atee, an information-packed
membership handbook, and
a subscription to the Club's
newsletter, "The Manatee
Zone."
Teachers and students can
learn more about manatees
by visiting the interactive
"Cool Manatee Stuff" section
on the Club's Web site at
savethemanatee.org/cool-
stuff.htm. Send a postcard,
watch a slide show, listen to
manatee sounds, or take a
quiz. Education materials
can also be downloaded.
Additional manatee materials
are also available at the Club,
including education packets
for students working on
school projects or reports.
The Club has produced two
videos on manatees, and
these are available for pur-
chase at the Manatee Gifts
section of the Web site.
Save the Manatee Club is a
national nonprofit organiza-
tion started in 1981 by U.S.
Senator Bob Graham and
singer/songwriter Jimmy
Buffett. There are only about
3,000 manatees left in Florida.
Adoption and donation dol-
lars go toward manatee edu-
cation and public awareness

Celebrate White Cane Day


VIRGINIA DEUPREE
GUEST COLUMNIST

Did you ever stop to think
how much of our lives we
spend looking forward to the
"next stage"? OK, let's pretend
we've been married a year
and are expecting our first
baby in six months. Of course,
there is a lot to do, but time
seems to go so slowly and we
can hardly wait to see that
baby. Now we can know the
sex months ahead, but we still
can hardly wait to see how our
darling looks. After the last
difficult weeks the baby is


finally here.
Mama and baby come
home from the hospital and
after the first euphoria, reality
sets in! Do you remember
those ragged, sleepless nights,
the constant feeding and
changing? We can hardly wait
until our precious heir lets us
sleep through the night.
And then, you know, we
anticipate the next stages of
development. The learning to
walk and talk, and the first
tooth.
Why were we so eager for
that baby to walk? Nothing is
sacred and they are into
everything. Remember the
terrible twos? Of course, we
are proud that he or she is so
intelligent as to be so inves-
tigative, but!
After a couple of easier
years the child looks forward
to going to school, and mom
has more time on her hands.
Some get jobs (if they are not
already working), others do
volunteer work, pursue hob-


bies, exercise or are quite
busy managing a bustling
household until the school
bus brings them home again.
Pretty soon the child is
excited about going to high
school with the big kids. Let's
not let them in on the secret
that high school days are
often a lonely, confusing time
for most.
Do you think in the cre-
ation of our minds, that
somehow they were molded
to always think ahead? I
dunno.
Then comes the big day of
graduation. Would you be-
lieve that our little child is
almost mature and looking
forward to college or a posi-
tion in the work force or mili-
tary? They may not realize it
yet, that life is not always a
bed of roses. Do we dare tell
them? We oldsters know that
in life you win a few and lose a
few. That's just the way it is.

Addressing the retirement challenge for women


SFCs' Faith in Action Program

seeks friendly pen pals


BY DOROTHY RODDY
GUEST WRITER

The demographics for
Southwest Florida, and Ven-
ice in particular, give the aver-
age age of its residents as 65.
With ever-improving health
care and new ways to prolong
active lifestyles, it's not un-
usual for people to live active
lives into their 90s. In the first
few years of retirement,
there's so much to plan for
that one can only imagine the
rest of their days being filled
with travel, projects or fun.
After a while, the newness of
being "free" can lose some of
its luster. Too much golf,
shopping, eating out or visit-


ing can seem to be not as ex-
citing as it once was. Buying
new things doesn't work for
the long term and when the
daily routine becomes stale,
the question becomes, what
am I going to do with the rest
of my life?
The Women's Resource
Center of Sarasota County
(WRCSC) has a very good
answer. Our programs have
been at the forefront for edu-
cation, support and referrals
for women for the past 26
years. Our main program, the
Challenge Program, is a 30-
hour course that promotes
emotional and economic
self-sufficiency for women in
transition. As women, we go


through many transitions in
life and need help from time
to time. Retirement is simply
another transition we go
through.
The WRCSC is offering a
new kind of Challenge class in
early November in partner-
ship with Manatee Com-
munity College called The Re-
tirement Challenge for Wom-
en. It's designed for women
age 60 and older who have
retired and are facing issues-
that are geared toward older
women. It will be a six-day
program, 9 a.m.-3 p.nm., held
at the Venice campus of
Manatee Community Col-
lege, Nov. 1, 2, 3, 8, 9 and 10.
Che de -ription is in the MCC


fall 2005 noncredit course
catalog and the cost is $45.
The course will include Cop-
ing* with Change, Family
Relationships, Loss/Grief, Fi-
nancial Management and
many more. There will also be
a panel discussion with four
arra -igencies on the value of
volunteering, especially at
this time in life.
Enroll by calling MCC at
408-1412 to reserve your
space in this new class de-
signed for women who have
retired from their former
lifestyle, but not from life.
Dorothy Roddy is
Challenge Coordinatorfor
the Women's Resource Center
of Sarasota County.

DEUPREE frompage 6B


When your offspring gets
out of college or earns
enough money to be inde-
pendent, they can't wait to get
a place of their own. A friend's
youngest son left home at 19.
He moved around a lot before
finally moving back home to
Ohio, this time with his new
family. Did they really think
he was on his own? My friend,
who has four sons very close
in age, said, "My sons are like
boomerangs. I keep throwing
them out there but they keep
coming back home." Let's
hope our hero hasn't moved
back home with mom and


pop, which many are doing
now. After all, mom's cooking
is pretty good, and the rent is
cheap.
The next stage comes
when they have found the
companion of their dreams
and decide to get married.
We'll not let him in on this
secret either; but many of the
little traits that so attract them
now may be the same ones
that drive them nuts in five
years. But they are sure that
will be the most wonderful
day of their life,i and maybe it
will be. Everyone is excited for
them as they look forward to


the happy day. Do you know
what? The same cycle starts
all over again.
But meanwhile, what
about the parents? They look
forward to the next stage of
their lives. It is time for the
parents to relax a bit, travel
and downsize. We can pass
our own interests.
Ah, the next step is retire-
ment. That will be wonderful.
We look forward to being
grandparents and great-
grandparents. We anticipate
retirement. The one thing we
didn't count on is that one
can retire from a job, but


never from being a parent.
Even at my advanced old age,
I feel deeply the good or bad
things that happen to my
children, and grandchildren,
too.
I dunno. I think I'd better
stop talking about these
stages right now.

Rocco Forte names Munich hotel


STAFF REPORT

Rocco Forte Hotels an-
nounced that its Munich
property, which is due to
open in spring 2007, will be
called Hotel Ludwig.
Hotel Ludwig is one of
three properties that Rocco
Forte Hotels is currently
developing in Germany, mak-
ing it the country's market
leader with regard to luxury
hotels. The other two are Villa
Kennedy in Frankfurt (open-
ing January 2006) and Hotel
de Rome in Berlin (opening
July 2006).
Located in the heart of the
Bavarian city of Munich, in
the area known as Lenbach
Garten (which lies on the
edge of the Botanical
Gardens), guests of Hotel
Ludwig will be guaranteed a
peaceful stay with tranquil
views.
Ideal for business and
leisure travellers, the hotel is
within walking distance of the
commercial district, popular
shopping areas and enter-
tainment facilities. It is also
well located for transport
links, being close to the city's
main train station, The
Hauptbahnhof, with the
Franz Josef Strauss airport
lying just 28 km to the north-
east of Munich.
Hotel Ludwig has been
named after a colorful former
monarch, King Ludwig II,
who ruled Bavaria in the 19th
century. Something of a leg-
end, he was a great statesman
who was popular with his
people. Eccentric and theatri-
cal by nature, King Ludwig
built three extravagant fairy
tale castles that have since
inspired the likes of Walt
Disney, often staged plays and
operas at his palaces, and was
a great supporter ofWagner.
A stylish new-build prop-
erty, Hotel Ludwig is set to sig-
nificantly raise the standard
of visitor accommodation in
Munich. The design has been
overseen by Rocco Forte
Hotels' Director of Design
Olga Polizzi, and as with all
the other properties in the
collection, it will have its own
personality that reflects its
location. For example, there
will be Bavarian limestone in
the bathrooms and original
paintings by Munich's cele-
brated 19th century artist
Franz von Lenbach in the
bedrooms. Although von

Lenbach painted a variety of
subjects, he is most remem-
bered as a portrait artist of
contemporary celebrities.
Once in operation, Hotel
Ludwig will provide the same
attention to detail, exception-
al levels of comfort and per-
sonal service for which Rocco
Forte Hotels have become so
well known.
The eight-story, Euros
71.5-million hotel will have
132 spacious guest rooms and
28 suites, a restaurant with
two private dining rooms, a
ballroom accommodating up
to 400 guests for a drinks
reception, a bar and a health
center comprising a swim-
ming pool, sauna, five treat-
ment rooms and the latest
cardiovascular gym equip-
ment. Business clients will
have the use of eight meeting
rooms, all equipped with all
the latest technology.
Rocco Forte Hotels was
established in 1996 to create a
collection of luxury hotels in
Europe. The hotels have indi-
vidual styles, with each hotel
reflecting its nationality and
location. The collection is
linked together under the
Rocco Forte Hotels brand,


which guarantees attention
to detail, quality and service
delivery.
The Rocco Forte Hotels
collection includes:
* Hotel de Russie, Rome
* Hotel Savoy, Florence
* The Balmoral, Edinburgh
* The St. David's Hotel & Spa,
Cardiff
* The Lowry Hotel, Manchest-
er
* Hotel Astoria, St Petersburg
* HotelAmigo, Brussels
* Le Richemond, Geneva
* Brown's Hotel, London
(closed for refurbishment,
will re-open late 2005)
* Chateau de Bagnols, en
Beaujolais (managed on
behalf of Lady Hamlyn)
Future openings:
* Villa Kennedy, Frankfurt -
2006
* Hotel de Rome, Berlin -
2006
* Verdura Golf & Spa Resort,
Sicily- 2007
* Munich- 2007

land and Chesapeake Bay

'Grease' sizzles at The Players Theatre in Sarasota


BY LAURA FEHL
STAFF WRITER

The popular, fun-filled
rock 'n' roll musical "Grease"
opened recently at The
Players Theatre inSarasota.
"Grease" premiered on
Broadway in 1972, took over
as the longest running Broad-
way show in 1979, and its hit
movie adaptation was one of
the highest :grossing movie
musicals ever.
Now audience members
get to go back to 1950s Rydell
High with a cast full of talent
and awe-inspiring energy.
The show begins with an
exuberant welcome back
from Rydell High nerdy do-


gooders Patty and Eugene,
convincingly played by Me-
ghan E. Manahan and Chris
Keller. At the request of strict
yet quirky teacher Miss
Lynch, played by Bobbie Bur-
rell, the trio decides to sing
the Rydell High Alma Mater.
It is not long, however,
before the Alma Mater is
taken over and turned to par-
ody by the Pink Ladies and
the Burger Palace Boys.
Samantha Barrett, Aly
Foster, Annemarie LaTulip
and Kwendel Lasha all do an
excellent job portraying the
members of the Pink Ladies.
Jonathan Hall, Michael
Jorgensen, Taso Zouroudis
and Jake Pearlman were very


humorous and convincing as
the Burger Palace Boys.
Jordan Baszner and Erica
Jade Drew enter the scene as
Danny and Sandy and, along
with the Pink Ladies and
Burger Palace Boys, present a
fabulous rendition of "Sum-
mer Nights."
From there the tale,of
1950s pop culture and teen-
age angst takes off for scene
after scene filled with song
and dance. Each of the Pink
Ladies and the Burger Palace-


gobqgyo a world of enor~an,orneo


Boys performs at least one
solo.
The first act concludes
with the two groups joining to
sing "We Go Together," and
Act II commences with the
entire company performing
"Shakiri' at the High School
Hop."
Charles McKenkie III and
Jared E. Walker, as Teen Angel
and Vince Fontaine, round
out the performance in ActII.
The entire cast joins in for
the Finale in singing the "We


Go Together-reprise."
Each of these actors, many
of whom attend, or have
graduated from, Booker High
School, did a wonderful job in
their individual roles.
The set and authentic
1950s costumes added to the
ambiance, complete with
the famed car, Greased
Lightnin'.
Barrett and Baszner shine
in their respective roles as
Danny and Rizzo, and Hall is
hilarious as Doody.


Director/choreographer
Dewayne Barrett, Musical
Director Dr..David Katz, and
the entire cast and crew are to
be commended for a stellar
performance.
"Grease" runs through Oct.
9 at The Players Theatre in
Sarasota. Call 365-2494 for
information.

SHOW from lB
"It really hits all the bases,"
Rojas said. "We feel with the
generation of people that
we're reaching with bands
that talk about blowing your
brains out, getting high and
having sex every single day -
we have lyrics about hope
and about life. I just think it
makes a huge difference."
The music that's been
given to them is depressing.
"Honestly, I think that as


long as you don't lose your
focus, you have a bigger lis-
tening audience. I think it's a
very amazing thing. All too
often people get an opportu-
nity to be heard by the mass-
es and they forget who got
them there. That's a shame
because we're supposed to set
the example," Rojas said.
Krystal Myers
"I thought that it was going
to be fun and a great opportu-
nity," Meyers said about play-
ing the festival. "There's actu-
ally a whole lot of rock acts on
Shout Fest, which is cool.
There's lots of crowd partici-
pation."
Meyers said she is inspired
by bands like Dashboard
Confessional, Blindside and
My Chemical Romance.
"My message is anti-con-
formity, which isn't discussed,
especially when it comes to

S

a

a


mainstream stun,, sne saia.
"Anti-conformity is basically
going against the flow of all
that. It's about becoming the
person that God wants you to
be and not becoming the per-
son the world wants you to
be."
"I'm 17 and I'm talking eye
to eye with my peers," Meyers
said. "I'm right in the boat
with you."
Meyers will have a 20-
minute set, and she is one of
18 different music groups
performing at the festival.
"Small town or not, each
show has been pretty cool. I
think there's such a thrill
being out with other bands,"
Meyers said. "There are so
many kids there and so much
ministry and so many oppor-
tunities. They should come
out because our show is com-
pletely high energy and all the
bands are.wonderful."

Barbara Meyer and Charlotte Foster share a minute at Foster's 98th birthday party.

puppeteer turns98


Foster wastes no time letting anybody cut in.


BYJEREMYROTTGEN
STAFF WRITER

Charlotte Z. Foster was
born in Germany in 1907.
She just turned 98 in)
September, and she was
honored at the South Venice
Yacht Club's September
dance.
"I gave myself a birthday
present for my 98th birth-
day," Foster said. "I'm not
driving anymore."
Foster is still light on her
feet and she had a few
dances with the commodore
and other club members.
"She's a great lady," said
SVYC Commodore Dick
Meyer. "She made a lot of
the decorations for the club
herself."
Of all the members of the
South Venice Yacht Club,
Foster is the most adored
because of her addictive per-
sonality.
"I'm the oldest member
of this club," she said. "I
knew all the commodores."


Truckin'
Foster came to America in
1928. Since then she's lived
in Baltimore, New York,
Pittsburgh and Detroit.. She's
lived in South Venice for the
past 45 years. She is a mem-
ber of the Jewish War Veter-
ans of the United States, and
she has visited the Holy
Land.
"I visited the Holy Land in
the 80s," Foster said. "It's
something you have to do,
but it was a good time to go
there."
Although Foster has mov-
ed a lot during her years,
she's dropped anchor in
Venice.
"I still live in the same
house," she said.
Foster taught puppeteer-
ing at the library and was
involved with the South
Venice Civic Association even
before she came down here
in 1960.
"Before that, my husband
and I were members of the
civic association," she said.


Her husband, Sherid, was
involved with the South
Venice fire department..
Foster has been the deco-
rator for the S\YC for more
than 40 years and she is
immortalized with a sign
designating decoration stor-
age as Charlotte's Closet.
Puppets
"I've always said I've
made my living with my feet
or with my hands," Foster
said.
"When I moved to Detroit
everybody had children,"
Foster said. "So, I took in a
foster child. She was 4 years
old."
When Foster adopted the
little girl, she got into being
a puppeteer. Foster would
use hand puppets, shadow
puppets and rod puppets to
put on shows for children.
Her husband built a stage
and she took off with the
hobby.
"If it hadn't been for (her
daughter), I would have

commodore.


never gotten into being a
puppeteer,'-she said.
She enjoyed performing
at schools and libraries to
educate children about pup-
pets, and she even perform-
ed at the Venice Little Theatre.
Foster gave her puppets
to the Children's Mluseum in
Miami.
Venice
Foster was a member of
various clubs before she


decided to move to South
Venice from Detroit.
"I taught ballroom danc-
ing and exhibition dancing
at the club for a few years,"
Foster said. "I learned the
hula from the wife of a former
commodore. Since I'm a
Virgo, I'm a perfectionist."
She was a member of the
Detroit Puppeteers Guild.
"If you want to be active,
you find the time," Foster
said.


Besides being a member
of many area clubs, Foster
also volunteered her time at
Loveland Center.
"That was very revwading.
working with them," Foster
said.
She enjoys entertaining
children and adults, whether
it be with puppets or danc-
ing.
"If I make it to 100 I don't
know what the heck I'm
going to do," she said.


Foster cuts a rug with SVYC Commodore Dick Meyer.
