Lucaya speeders frighten residents


VPD claims it has stepped up traffic enforcement, despite
resident complaints and outside consultant's critical report.


BY JJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

One has only to stand on the
sidewalk in front of Earl Peters'
home on Lucaya Avenue to know
why he's unhappy.
Hardly any drivers stop at the
three-way stop sign where Pinebrook
Way dead-ends at Lucaya.
On top of that, most of them
appear to be exceeding the 25 mph
speed limit.
"A stop sign means stop. It doesn't
mean slow down," Peters said. "If
anything, speeding) has gotten
worse.


"I've watched them all go through
it, school buses, cars, city vehicles,
SCAT buses, you name it. ...
Handing out just a few tickets would
send a message."
A private consultant paid $50,000
to evaluate Venice Police
Department appears to agree, and
now Matrix Consulting Group's 124-
page report heads, to Venice City
Council on Tuesday.
Lucaya Avenue has turned into
an east-west connector road for dri-
vers going from Pinebrook Road to
Albee Farm Road, and the stop sign
went up as a speed deterrent just
more than a year ago.


However, police enforcement of
that sign has been virtually nonexis-
tent since it went up, according to
Peters and two of his neighbors.
'Anymore, going across the street
to get your mail is taking your life
into your own hands," neighbor Sue
Sansiveri said.
"There's definitely a speed prob-
lem on Lucaya, and there's nothing
they can do about it. It just gets
worse each year."
Not that bad
As was first reported inside the
Venice Gondolier Siun more than a
week ago, the final report suggests
cutting police staff among its 2:3 rec-
ommendations.

Venice City Council members
may want to kiss their families good-
bye and say they love them before
heading out for Tuesday's meeting.
The council agenda is so long, it
-could be days before they return
home from the meeting that starts at
1:30 p.m.
Among the high-profile topics are
a pair of proposed zoning districts,
adoption of the Evaluation and
Appraisal Report on the city's 1999
comprehensive plan and empower-
big Venice code enforcement offi-
cers to write tickets for violations
such as tall grass.
The major generator of debate
has been the proposed Commercial
Mixed Use zoning district.
Originally, drafted by private
developer Mike Miller, this district
would allow for three or more uses
like entertainment, retail, hotel,
dining, residential to take place:
all within the same building. None
of the city's existing districts incor-

porate this many uses to create an
"activity center" mixing residential,
commercial and tourist.
The majority of citizens appear to
support the CMU idea, and most of
the opposition is about building
heights. Many people are pushing to
restrict the height in a CMU to 35
feet or less, while others favor allow-
ing up to 80 feet.
In his memo to council, Planning
and Zoning Director Tom Slaughter
states that the stricter "conditional
use" process has been added as a
requirement to obtain any buildings
taller than 35 feet. Other changes

The school board, county
and municipalities met
Friday to discuss a new law
that could allow local
governments to require
developers to set aside land
for future schools.

BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Elected officials, city managers
and top administrators from around
the county convened Friday for a
lesson on school concurrency.
The new law requires local gov-
ernments to adopt a public school
facilities element into interlocal
agreements, and may require resi-
dential developers to set aside lands
for future schools.
Elected board members from
Sarasota County School District,
Board of Commissioners and city


managers and commissioners from
Venice, North Port, Sarasota and
Longboat Key all met at the Venice
Community Center to review the
current interlocal agreement and
discuss school concurrency.
It was a chance for elected offi-
cials to ask questions from local and
state administrators about the law
passed last session, and to raise con-
cerns.
The Sarasota County School
District is among six serving as pilot
districts for the state's new school
concurrency lawv.
The new law requires each coun-
ty and city to update interlocal
agreements to add school capacity
to comprehensive plans. Under
concurrency rules, local govern-
ments can deny development if
nearby schools are unable to handle
the number of children that would
be projected to come from the new
homes.
Each pilot district is expected to
write a draft interlocal agreement
with municipalities in their counties

by March 1 and a draft school capac-
ity plan by June. The district plan
will serve as a model for other
school districts, which must begin
implementing the law by 2008.
Progressive
Mike McDaniel, Florida Depart-
ment of Community Affairs repre-


sentative, told the audience Sarasota
was selected as a pilot district for its
progressiveness.
"We thought Sarasota County
would be a very good choice. It is a
place where good planning takes
place," McDaniel said.

Tropical Bob:

The big chill

Tropical Bob knows Wilma
is on your mind. But let's look
beyond the storm.
Post-Wilma, we are pre-
dicted to cool down. By mid-
week, our low temperature
will be in the 50s and a
departing Wilma will blow
gusty northerly winds into
our area.
Are you ready for highs in
'the mid-70s? That's like air
conditioning!
Open the windows.
And we can now address
the wind-chill index. Wind
chill combines temperature
(56) and wind (21 mph) to
create a "feels like" reading. By
mid-week, our wind chill at
night will plunge to 51 de-
grees!
Get out the coat. Bring in
the logs.





County to dedicate
Myakka Island
Wilderness Trail
Sarasota County will mark
the dedication of the Myakka
Island Wilderness Trail at T.
Mabry Carlton Jr. Memorial
Reserve, 1800 Mabry Carlton


Parkway, Venice, from 9:30
a.m.-noon Tuesday, Nov. 1,
with nature tours and hay
rides.
A formal dedication will
take place at 10 a.m., followed
by guided nature tours and a
hay ride at 11 a.m. State Sen.


Lisa Carlton, whose father
was instrumental in negotiat-
ing the purchase of the
reserve by Sarasota County, is
scheduled to attend.
The 18-mile Myakka Island
Wilderness Trail stretches
through both Sarasota Coun-


ty public lands and state land,
including the T. Mabry Carl-
ton Jr. Memorial Reserve,
Myakka Prairie and Myakka
River State Park. It is open to
pedestrians, bicyclists and
equestrians, and weaves
through thousands of acres of


pine flatwoods, dry prairies,
hammock and wetlands.
According to Sarasota
County Public Use Coordin-
ator Brie Willett, the trail has
the potential to continue fur-
ther south through Myakka
State Forest as far as Charlotte


Harbor and northward into
Manatee County, making it a
true regional project.
"This dedication is a great
opportunity to celebrate the
public use opportunities
within and around the coun-
ty's natural areas," saidWillet.

Tervis moves to new corporate home


More than 20 large containers await loading at
Tervis Tumbler's old factory in Osprey. The
drinkware company built a new manufacturing
facility in Venice.


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

It was high noon in Osprey
on Thursday as most of the
employees of Tervis Tumbler
departed the manufacturing
and corporate offices for the
final time.
Following months of plan-
ning and days spent individu-
ally packaging their working
equipment and office sup-
plies into boxes, specialist
removal teams began careful-
ly assembling items in preci-
sion style for transporting to
the new Venice plant off
Laurel Road and Knights Trail
east of Interstate 75.
Despite forecasts of the
arrival of Hurricane Wilma in
Florida, the sun was shining
brightly for this momentous
occasion. After 46 years in
Osprey, the current 120 com-
pany employees together
with much of the manufac-
turing equipment were be-
ginning to move off site.
"It is a tremendous under-
taking and we ha\e boxes
everywhere in preparation for
the move," said Marnee
O'Neil, marketing manager.
"Employees will finish at


noon Thursday in Osprey and
expect to return over the
weekend, riot withstanding
Wilma's arrival, to the new
plant. Everyone is very excit-
ed as we have taken trips to
the new location in small
.groups."
Tervis Tumbler will contin-
ue operating its retail store at
928 South Tamiami Trail in
Osprey, just south of the new
Wal-Mart store. It will have
normal hours seven days
weekly, and as a result of
inventory changes, has re-
duced merchandise available.
Bigger and better
The new custom-built
60,750-square-foot plant in
North Venice at 201 Triple
Diamond Boulevard is set on
6.5 acres in partially devel-
oped picturesque, quiet rural
surroundings, and visible
from 1-75 to the north of the
Laurel Road interchange.
Contrasting significantly to
often-congested and fast-
developing U.S. 41 in Osprey,
the new location has an idyl-
lic appearance with palm-
tree-lined approaches and
park lots. The architects
designed the front vista to


encompasses a giant Tervis
Tumbler near the entrance
lobby.
More than $7 million has
been invested in the new
building, which is two and a
half times larger than the
original Osprey plant. Part of
the investment is in new
state-of-the-art equipment
that will take the company's
production opportunities for-
ward into future decades.
To overcome one of the
major problems associated
with the move the lack of
facilities around the location,
which currently has only one
gas station Tervis manage-
ment built a bigger cafeteria
to meet employee needs.
There is still a definite need
for banking, pharmacy and
shopping facilities in North
Venice, all of which were
within easy access at the
Osprey location, according to
employees.
"We're very pleased to have
Tervis Tumbler as a presti-
gious member of the Triple
Diamond Commerce Com-
munity Plaza," said Jim
Beach, "director of Triple
Diamond Enterprises.
Beach confirmed George
Skaggs Builder's new location
would be adjacent to Tervis,
and that 80 percent of the
space within Triple Diamond
Plaza has already been sold.

industrial employer in Venice,

has expanded it's adjoining
location in recent years to
accommodate for continuing
growth.
Waterford Companies re-
cently confirmed it will be
building facilities on the
adjoining Knights Trail to
include restaurants, a retail
center, movie theater and


housing., Called Laurel Park
North, the rezoning applica-
tion is up for council approval
Tuesday.

School board drafts legislative wish list


Gone is last year's proposal to grant school
boards the option to seek a 10-year referendum.
New proposals seek a different way to measure
alternative schools under federal rules, and to
include incentive pay in state retirement
calculations.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

The Sarasota County
School Board decided at a
Friday workshop to drop a
legislative position that
would give it the option, with
voter approval, to levy addi-
tional millage for up to 10
years. The 10-year option was
part of last year's legislative
platform.
Board chairwoman Kathy
Kleinlein said she still likes
the idea to promote better
long-range planning, but the
timing's not right to bring it
up at this time.
"We didn't have the sup-
port from our legislative dele-
gation. Because our referen-
dum comes up before the leg-
islature convenes and


November's general election,
it doesn't make sense to bring
the issue up again until after
the turnover," Kleinlein said.
Rep. Nancy Detert, R-
Venice, who filed legislation
on behalf of the board last
session, is pleased the board
dropped the proposal.
"I never liked it in the first
place," Detert said. "I intro-
duced HB 613 on behalf of
the school board as a cour-
tesy. I probably wouldn't do it
again. It was not accepted
well in the Legislature. It had
no chance to get passed."
Besides, said Detert, the
bill would have to get past a
finance and tax committee
chaired by Fred Brummer, R-
Orange County.
"He promised he would
kill it and he did. It was like


walking the green mile. You
know your bill is in trouble if
it's even sent there."
D e t e rt
withdrew HB
613 instead of
allowing it to
die in com-
mittee.
The board
dropped the
legislative '--
position as it
prepares to Kleinlein
push an ex-
tension of the one-mill coun-
ty education surtax for anoth-
er four years.
The board will hold a
workshop next week, on
whether to officially support
an extended referendum.
Two community meetings are
scheduled for early next week
to provide the board with
additional input on the refer-
endum and other issues. One
is at Heron Creek Middle
School in North Port Monday
evening, and one at Venice
Elementary Tuesday evening.
Retirement pay
The board adopted a leg-


islative position encouraging
Florida to consider incentive
pay in employee retirement
pay calcula-
tions. Cur-
rently the
state consid-
ers perfor-
mance pay,
school recog-
Snition and
similar finan-
cial incentives
Detert as bonuses or
other one-
time monies not allowed to
be included under current
rules.
Board members were okay
with excluding one-time
school recognition monies
from the calculation, but see
the exclusion of incentive pay
as questionable while the dis-
trict moves toward a merit-
based pay scale for employees.
Member Laura Benson
said she didn't see a need
for the legislative position at
all.
Altemative
The board also adopted a
position requesting the state


measure alternative schools
in a different way than re-
quired under current No
Child Left Behind rules. Ex-
isting rules measure schools
based on actual grades and
how much they improved.
By using only actual
grades, alternative schools, by
definition, will always be con-
sidered failing schools, said
Kleinlein.
Instead, the board would
like the state to use only a
measure of improvement
over time.
It provides a fairer measure
of student progress, Kleinlein
said.
Hurricanes and more
The district also wants to
forward a position calling for
"proportional funding" for
schools that are deemed
regional hurricane shelters.
Other platform positions
call for funding to carry out
the Jessica Lunsford Act
requiring background checks
for nonemployees on school
grounds. The district says this
could be accomplished by
not charging schools for


background investigations.
Back again are legislative
positions calling for an annu-
al cost-of-living adjustment
to the base student allocation
in the state's education fund-
ing formula, and to fund a
sufficient number of class-
rooms to accommodate
teacher that were hired be-
cause of the class-size consti-
tutional amendment.
Other positions call for
restored funding for middle
school career and technical
education, teacher recruit-
ment and professional devel-
opment.
Each year the board
adopts a platform urging leg-
islative action. The platform
is used by the school board as
it meets with its local legisla-
tive delegation in early No-
vember.
It's also is forwarded to the
Florida School Boards Asso-
ciation for consideration
statewide by elected school
boards.

Voters will make land acquisition decisions by Nov. 8


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

Two referendum questions
that could expand Sarasota
County's environmentally sen-
sitive lands protection program
to include park and beach ac-
cess sites, extend its deadline 10
years until 2029, and raise an-
other $250 million for acquisi-
tions will be decided by voters
Nov. 8.
If approved, program guide-
lines will be amended to create
more flexibility when land
becomes available that doesn't

ey from an annual tax of up to
0.25 mill and the ability to sell
up to $53 million worth of
bonds. All the money has been
committed to acquisitions.
The county commission
considered options to: 1) Raise
the bond cap an additional $86
million to $149 million; or 2)
Extend the program 10 addi-
tional years to 2029 and raise
the bond cap an additional


$250 million to $303 million. It
chose the second option,
which does not include a tax
increase.
There is an urgency to deal
with the land protection pro-
gram's funding needs this year
because the county's local
option 1-cent sales tax expires
in 2009 and voters will be asked
to approve a 10-year extension
either in 2007 or 2008.

Hurricane Wilma [


The following is a roundup of the latest /

information regarding Hurricane Wilma. -


Voluntary
evacuations
issued
In anticipation of tropical
storm-force winds from
Hurricane Wilma by Monday
morning, Sarasota County is
urging voluntary evacuations
for mobile homes, low-lying
areas and barrier islands.
Four shelters will open at 9
a.m. today.
As of Saturday afternoon,
predictions are for Hurricane
Wilma to weaken to a
Category 2 hurricane by
today with winds of 96-110
mph, then remain a Category
2 until landfall along the
southwestern coast of Florida
after 7 a.m. Monday, accord-
ing to the National Hurricane
Center. Wilma should move
off the east coast of Florida
sometime Monday after-
noon,, then head northeast-
ward.
The four shelters that are
opening will be:
Tuttle Elementary
School, 925 N. Brink Ave.,
Sarasota
Pine View School, 501 Old
Venice Road, Osprey
Brookside Middle School,
3636 S. Shade Ave., Sarasota
(pet-friendly)
North Port High School,
6400 W. Price Blvd., North
Port (pet-friendly)
Other announcements will
be made at 10 a.m. Sunday
regarding schools, city and
county government offices
and courts.


Also on Sunday, Sarasota
County Area Transit (SCAT)
will operate its regular routes,
free of charge, beginning at 10
a.m. until 6 p.m. for residents
needing transportation to
area shelters.
Buses will take passengers
to five transfer points:
The Downtown Transfer
Station
Sarasota Pavilion shop-
ping center
Venice Train Depot
Westfield Sarasota Square
Mall
Venice Regional Medical
Center
From each transfer point,
Sarasota County school buses
will transfer riders to the
nearest open shelter.
Buses have room for carry-
on bags; however, riders are
requested to limit the num-
ber of bags.
Pets must be in carriers.
Supervisors and security will
be stationed at each point.
Riders who are allergic to ani-
mals should notify a SCAT
supervisor to arrange alter-
nate transportation.
Emergency Management
officials said that residents in
voluntary evacuation zones
need to be prepared if
mandatory evacuations of
those areas are ordered
Sunday morning.
For more information on
hurricane preparations and
possible evacuations and clo-
sures, call the. Sarasota
County Call Center at 861-
5000, or visit scgov.net and
click on SCGOV Storm
Center.


Venice
area shelters
The American Red Cross is
responsible for manning and
supplying all hurricane shel-
ters in Sarasota County. The
organization evaluates the
needs and special conditions
of each emergency situation
and then opens the shelters,
one at a time, in each of three
zones as they are needed. It
also coordinates with
Sarasota County School
Board since most shelters are
in the public schools.
In the Venice area, the
most likely shelters to be
opened during the current
hurricane season include
Pine View School, 501 Old
Venice Road, Osprey; Garden
Elementary School, 700
Center Road, Venice; Taylor
Ranch Elementary School,
2500 Taylor Ranch Trail,
Venice; Laurel Middle School,
1900 East Laurel Road,
Nokomis; and Venice Area
Middle School, 1900 Center
Road, Venice.
Both the Venice
Elementary School and the
Venice Community Center
were completed so recently
the Red Cross has not yet cer-
tified them for emergency
use.
ACT exams rescheduled
High school students were
scheduled to take the ACT
exam Saturday, Oct. 22.
Because of the uncertainty
with Hurricane Wilma, Venice
High School has rescheduled
the test for Oct. 29.


GRAPHIC COURTESY OF THE NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER
The latest National Hurricane Center storm track available at Gondolier Sun press time predicted
Hurricane Wilma making landfall south of Naples just after 7 a.m. Monday. Most of Florida was
in the cone for a potential strike, however.


History Center closes
Due to its location near
Sarasota Bay and the possibil-
ity of damage from Hurricane
Wilma, the Sarasota County
History Center has moved its
collection of irreplaceable
artifacts and documents to
secure off-site storage and
temporarily closed its doors.
The History Center,
including its permanent
exhibit on author MacKinlay
Kantor and its current exhibit,
"Bases, Beaches and Bond
Drives: Sarasota County and
World War II," will remain
closed to the public, includ-
ing researchers, until the col-
lection and exhibits can be
returned and made accessi-
ble. A sign at the front of the
building will inform potential
visitors about the temporary
closing.


MCC cancels classes
Manatee Community
College offices will close and
operations and all activities at
MCC Bradenton, MCC Venice
and the Center for Innovation
and Technology at MCC
Lakewood Ranch, and all
other locations will be can-
celed from 5 p.m. Sunday,
Oct. 23, through Monday, Oct.
24, as a precautionary mea-
sure due to Hurricane Wilma.
MCC also conducts traffic
safety and other noncredit
classes on weekdays and
weekends. Those classes, as,
well as the college library,
Academic Resource Centers
and Dental Hygiene Clinic
also are canceled Monday.
Regular college hours,
classes and all activities are
expected to resume Tuesday,
Oct. 25. Any change in the


resumption of college opera-
tions will be announced by
college officials online at

Oct. 23, are canceled.
According to the CDC, all
people will be eligible for flu
shots starting Monday, Oct.
24. The public is advised to

VPD from page lA


The report states that the
department is overstaffed
and officers spend too much
time without any assigned
duties, management has
failed to properly document
and enforce policies, and not
enough traffic stops are being
done.
Police Chief Jim. Hanks is
downplaying the report, say-
ing it fails to tell the entire
story. He also said all of the
figures are from 2004 police
statistics, ignoring what's
been done in 2005.
On the traffic front, Hanks
said citations are up 30 per-
cent this year, and many of
those stops have been along
Lucaya Avenue, even though
residents next to the intersec-
tion claim they haven't seen
it.
"We know there are certain
areas around town that need
our focus," Hanks said. 'And
the number of citations show
what we're doing.... When we
write 30 percent more tickets
than last year, something is
happening."
Matrix failed to point out
the department has been
awarded $10,000 from the
state this year for its traffic
enforcement program, which
is one of the report's flaws,
Hanks said.
It crunches the numbers,
but fails to do much of any-
thing else.
"I don't think they're pick-
ing on us; they're just not
telling the rest of the story,"
Hanks said. "Did they men-
tion the awards? Did they
mention the (School
Resource Officer) program.
Did theymentionwe have the
No. 1 Explorer (junior police)
program in the state? And, is
there any mention of all the
special events we do.
"I don't know. I didn't see
that in there, but all those
things do take man hours. ...
We're a user-friendly depart-
ment. You can still call the
chief of police and get a
response, get through. I'd like
to see you try that in Miami,
Fort Myers or even Sarasota
city. You should be able to, but
you can't."


County offers free recycled paint


MATRIX REPORT
Read the entire 124-page report about Venice Police Department
by downloading it from venicegov.com.
Among the major flaws that Matrix found was how there was little
to no documentation of police actions by VPD management.
Some of these areas included:
INTERNAL AFFAIRS The system for handling administra-
tive investigations and citizen complaints does not ensure all com-
plaints are recorded or investigated. Records are "disorganized and
co-mingled with personnel records."
PROACTIVE TIME According to the final report, about 70
percent of an officer s shift is spent waiting to respond to a police
call. Matrix states that amount should be between 40-50 percent.
Another problem was that VPD management does not assign
"proactive time" duties and does not track how officers spend that
time. Traffic enforcement is done during proactive time.
INSPECTIONS VPD does not have a procedure in place for
staff inspections to make sure agency policies and procedures are
followed.
MEETINGS Management meetings "do not appear to be
effectively utilized or planned," according to the report. It suggests
the command staff should meet at least once a month, have a pre-
pared agenda and keep meeting minutes.
STAFFING Matrix suggests cutting back the patrol division
to 25 officers and eliminating two sergeants positions, but creat-
ing three spots for boating and parks patrols. Th .re could be a net
loss of officers. It also suggests contracting out dispatching and


school crossing guard positions.



The end of Maybeny
Hanks plans to retire in
March after spending his
entire career with VPD. Chief
for the past.five years, he has
always considered it a com-
pliment when people refer to
Venice as Mayberry on the
Gulf Coast and himself as
Andy Griffith.
Growth and the dangerous
realities of the 21st century
have put an end to those
quaint, feel-good days in how
a police department should
be run, according to City
Manager Marty Black. Among
the major flaws that Matrix
found was how there was lit-
tle to no documentation of
police actions by VPD man-
agement.
Black also pointed to VPD
management not being
"proactive" enough, especial-
ly with all of the additional
proactive time police officers
appear to have. The city man-
ager said it took complaints
by residents and council
members to get a police offi-
cer to direct backed-up traffic


COMPILED BY JJ. ANDREWS



on the island during the 2004-
05 tourist season.
In his opinion, VPD should
have known about the con-
gestion problem and acted
'instead of being told to act.
Another example is the
full-time police officer sta-
tioned at Venice Municipal
Airport following the 2001 ter-
rorist attacks. VPD manage-
ment has yet to draw up a list
of daily work assignments for
that officer.
So for the past four years,
an officer sits at the airport
waiting for something to hap-
pen.
Remaining quaint and
charming like the fictional
Mayberry Police Department
is no longer enough for VPD,
according to the city manag-
er.
"We've matured to the
point where we can't do that,"
Black said. "We're too big. ...
That's where the Mayberry
example loses some of its
credibility. Our folks are deal-
ing with much more serious
crimes and issues."


Sarasota County is giving
away free recycled latex paint
to county residents. The give-
aways will take place at the
Household Chemical Coll-
ection Center, 8750 Bee Ridge
Road, Sarasota, Tuesday, Oct.
25, and Saturday, Oct. 29,
from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. or until
supplies are gone.


Residents who wish to pick
up paint must own and occu-
py the residence they are
going to paint, and that resi-
dence must be in Sarasota
County. They must show
proof of occupancy and own-
ership.
This is a one-time dona-
tion to residents, who may


take up to 10 gallons of paint.
Residents who have received
free paint in the past do not
qualify to receive paint again.
For more information, or
to determine if your home is
included, contact the
Sarasota County Call Center
at 861-5000 and ask for Solid
Waste Customer Service.


COUNCIL from page lA


include requiring a minimum
land area of 2.0 acres in order
to apply for a CMU, and that
unit owners in the condo-
minium hotel cannot occupy
the unit for more than six
months in any calendar year.
"We're really in no hurry to
make a decision on this. The
most important thing is to get
this right," council member
Rick Tacy said at the Venice
Sertoma-Rotary clubs lun-
cheon Thursday.
Tuesday's council meeting
is a continuation of the origi-
nal public hearing, meaning
audience comment has
already been taken. Council
members can choose to allow
more public input, take a vote
or recommend more changes
by staff.
Also on Tuesday
Other items on the agenda
include:
New tickets Similar to a
parking ticket, code enforce-
ment officers could issue cita-
tions for code violations if
council passes this new ordi-
nance. Currently, only prop-
erty owners can be fined, and
fees are collected by placing
liens against a person's prop-
erty. Tickets can be for up to
$500, and all challenges must
be in front of a judge, rather.
than Venice Municipal Code
Enforcement Board. Items
that could lead to a $500 tick-
et include: sea turtle light
rules, unlicensed contractor
and unsafe house violations.
Laurel Park North Final
reading to rezone nearly 75
acres of property at the inter-
section of Knights Trail and


Laurel roads from "Planned
Industrial Development" to
"Commercial General."
Waterford Companies in-
tends to build a retail shop-
ping center, 20-screen movie
theater and residential hous-
ing on the site. The private
developer also has agreed to
provide parking space for the
Habitat for Humanity and
YMCA project on city-owned
land.
Garbage definitions -
First reading to reword the
definitions for city garbage.
These changes could affect
the garbage-hauling dispute
currently going on between
the city and Venice Scrap
Metal Inc. about who gets to
collect trash at PGT
Industries. Current laws do
not allow private businesses
to collect "solid waste," as
defined by the city.
Venetian Urban Design
District Approved by plan-
ning commission in August,
this new design and appear-
ance overlay district would
run along U.S. 41 Business
from Milan Avenue to Circus
Bridge. Two readings are
required before this could
become law. City planners
state the goal ofVUD is to cre-
ate pedestrian-friendly devel-
opments along both sides of
U.S. 41 Business and main-
tain Northern Italian Renais-
sance theme architecture.
Evaluation and Appraisal
Report -Venice must submit
its proposed EAR to the state
by Dec. 1, and if approved, it
will shape next spring's policy
revision on the comprehen-
sive plan. This document is


what's used to direct and con-
trol development, and
Venice's updated copy is due
to the state in winter 2006-07.
There will be no second read-
ing on EAR adoption, unless
council requests it.
Historical Preservation
Board Final reading to
approve new definitions,
name and scope of duties for
Venice, Historical Commis-
sion, which would now be
named Historical Preser-
vation Board.
Venice Legacy Award A
new award recognizing his-
torical significance, the recip-
ients will be Betty Arnall and
the Brotherhood of Loco-
motive Engineers.
Venice Shrine Club -
Final reading to change the
future land use of vacant land
owned by Venice Shrine Club
along East Venice Avenue to
"Institutional/Professional."
The organization intends to
develop part of the land as a
new service club and sell the
rest, according to planning
commission testimony. ,
Utility deposits The
finance director will discuss
the utility deposits required of
citizens, and answer ques-
' tions about why renters are
charged twice as much as
property owners and how the
money is handled.
Venice MainStreet Tom
Opsut, executive director, is
scheduled to lead a five-
minute presentation on the
downtown group's latest
activities.

New emergency management chief named
Ed McCrane has been named emergency management chief for Sarasota
County, replacing Chuck Johnston, who filled the position on an interim basis
since-May. McCrane's first day with Sarasota County was Friday, Oct. 21.
He brings extensive experience to the position, including his role as west.
Florida area coordinator for Florida Emergency Management, where he was a
state liaison for seven area emergency management directors. Before accepting
the position with Sarasota County, McCrane was Florida Emergency
Management Area 4 coordinator and acting coordinator for Area 6, covering
Citrus to Collier counties.
"McCrane knows all the area players in emergency management," said Dave
Harrawood, Sarasota County Emergency Services director. "His relationships
with fellow EOC chiefs and knowledge of inner workings of state government
make him a valuable assetfor our emergency management team."
AU.S. Army career veteran, McCrane's experience includes the Florida Army
National Guard. In that role, he planned and coordinated military support
operations during local, state and federal emergencies for 18 counties that
included placing National Guard soldiers in Florida airports, seaports and
nuclear power facilities after Sept. 11,2001.
"Ed's military background and emergency management experience with the
state highly qualify him to lead Sarasota County's Emergency Management,"
Johnston said. Johnston will assist McCrane during the transition through mid-
December and then return to his position in fire mitigation for Sarasota County.
County to dedicate Myakka Island
Wilderness Trail with nature tours, hay rides
Sarasota County will mark the dedication of the Myakka Island Wilderness Trail

"Concurrency is a compli-
cated problem. It will take a
lot of coordination among
local governments. You would
set a good example."
New game, new concerns
Unrestrained growth is dri-
ving concurrency, said
McDaniel. He expects a 30
percent increase in the state's
population from 18 million to
23 million.
"Concurrency will accom-
modate more up-front plan-
ning. The big task will be
agreeing on service areas and
the level of service in each,"
McDaniel said.
In order for development
to move forward under new
concurrency rules, it must be
included on the school dis-
trict's capital improvement
five-year plan. That require-
ment has some local officials
questioning whether it meets
best planning practices.
Sarasota County
Administrator Jim Ley said
the five-year window doesn't
promote better planning.
"You basically have three
choices," Ley said. "Let devel-
opment drive the capital
improvement plan. Or try and
plan ahead on the five-year
edge, if you can. Or keep your
CIP small to negotiate what is
necessary... to use it as lever-
age. That may be good for
political purposes, but it flies
in the face of good planning."

Enrollment projections
School Superintendent
Gary Norris raised concerns
about existing regulations
that conflict with the new law.
"Florida's class size
amendment, Department of


Here are the key parts of a new
law that requires public school
districts and local governments
to meet and review facility plans.
* MANDATORY: Each local gov-
ernment is required to include a
public school facilities element in'
its local comprehensive plan that
is consistent with those adopted
by other local governments with-
in the county. Prior to the legisla-
tion the inclusion of a facilities
element was optional
* INTERLOCAL AGREEMENTS:
Schools are now included as one
of the public facilities subject to
concurrency requirements of
local Comprehens.ve Plans. Must
adopt the agreement incorporat-
ing concurrency by Dec. 1, 2008
Concurrency can be applied dis-
trnic-wide initially, but must be at
the sub-district level within five
years The plan can be phased in
* FEASIBLE: The plan must be
"financially feasible.
* 'PROPORTIONATE SHARE
MITIGATION' must be allowed
Allows school concurrency to be
satisfied it a developer enters into
a legally binding commitment
to provide a mitigation option
proportionate to the demand for
public school facilities to be cre-
ated by actual development of
the project Only applies to resi-
dential areas
' SANCTIONS for not implement-
ing school concurrency: I. Local
governments would be preclud-
ed from adopting plans that
increase residential density. 2.
School boards could have their
construction funds withheld.
COMPILED BY GREG GILES


Education rules for calculat-
ing facilities space, and con-
currency are at odds," Norris
said.

Leaky plumbing, pinhole or not, can be costly





- what every homeowner should know


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

Cruel irony that the man
who has written a lengthy
series of newspaper articles
on leaky plumbing has him-
self become a victim.
"Guaranteed," Sleuth Field
Technician Randy Venable
said. "It's between the house
and the garage."
Sleuth Inc.,. is a Sarasota
leak-detection company.
Venable came to my island
home on Nokomis Avenue
Wednesday afternoon. It took
him about 15 minutes to
locate the leak.
The water line runs from
the back of the house to a
hose spigot on the garage,
about 30 feet.


COPPER PIPE

CORROSION
There are six obvious signs
that copper pipe corrosion
may be occurring:
Cloudy, blue or blue-green
water coming from the cold
tap.
Blue or blue-green stains
below the tap on sinks, basins
or baths, or on other plumb-
ing fixtures.
An unpleasant bitter or
metallic taste to the water.
Individual or small clumps of
blue crystals in the copper.
Pipe failure or pinhole pipe
leaks because of pitting corro-
sion.
You can generally hear the
leaks if they are inside the
house. Not surprisingly, it
sounds like water is running
somewhere.
Arguably, the most impor-
tant thing to look for is an
increase in your monthly
water bills. If there is a rapid
escalation not accountable by
additional people in the
home, or other special circum-
stance, have the system
checked immediately.



He said he doesn't believe
it's a pinhole leak, the kind
caused by copper pipe corro-
sion. He believes it's an actual
break in the. pipe, which he
thinks is CPVC or some such
between the copper uprights.
"Probably the roots from
that Ficas tree next to the pool
moved the pipe around
enough to crack it or open a
joint," he said.
Venable said any plumber
can fix the problem rather
easily.


Hopefully, the line doesn't
run under the patio slab.
Been giving that stupid
ficus tree the evil eye for four
of the six years we've been
there.
I'll be cutting it down.

Duh!
The last water bill was the
two-by-four that got the
mule's attention $355 for
two people for a month. The
ones before that were nice,
too both over $250. Before
that, the bills escalated each
month since January from a
low of about $120. The
monthly water for two people
should be in the neighbor-
hood of $60-$80 even with
three showers a day and
dumping 100 gallons a week
into the pool.
You would think that two
college-educated people who
have managed to cobble
together a comfortable de-
gree of success in life would
be smart enough to have fig-
ured it out sooner.
Hello!

How'd they do that?
It is amazing to watch
Sleuth find a leak.
Venable has a box about
the size of a small fishing
tackle box called a "Primary"
electronic leak-detectiing
device. To that is attached
headphones and what looks
like about a 15-inch long
metal spike on a lead to the
box. There is at least one dial
on top of the box.
The rig resembles some-
thing made by '"Acme" you
would expect to see on a
"Roadrunner" cartoon.
He simply puts the point of
the spike to the floor, wall or
pipe, and listens. He hears the
sound of running water
through the "stethoscope".
Sleuth can target a leak within
12 inches out in the open, or
within 18 inches near an
obstruction such as a cabinet.

The thing about pipes is...
... any pipe material will
leak over time, according to
Sleuth vice president and part
owner Luke Salzlein.
"If you maintain 70 psi
which is pretty close to the
average city or county pres-
sure on any pipe (about 40 psi
on a well), eventually it is
going to fail," Salzlein said.
"You put plumbing under
pressure, its going to leak.",
Salzlein said there is a life
span for all pipe materials.
"Soft copper (all fittings in

the walls) is good for any-
where between 20-30. years,
hard copper with stick (fit-
tings under floor)30-40 years,
and galvanized pipe over 60
years," Salzlein said.
Salzlein said in a new
home he is building, he is
installing CPVC pipe.
The downside of CPVC, he
said, is it tends to get brittle
with age and crack. He said
plumbers like working with
CPVC because it is easier to
cut, carry and install.
He said there is a rule of
thumb for deciding how


much trouble you could be in
if your pipes leak.
"You get more than one
leak within five years,"
Salzlein said, "your system is
probably letting you know it's
failing."
He said more than two
leaks in that time you proba-
bly should think about repip-
ing.
Salzlein said the leaky pipe
stories have gotten so bad
that if one person on the
block has to repipe, every-
body else on the block wants
to repipe even though they


'may not have any leaks.
Repiping an entire house can
cost anywhere from $5,000
up.
Salzlein said during the
busy season, his company
detects more than 200 leaks a
week. He said they detected
187 leaks last week.
While the McIntyre's
apparently do not have pin-
hole leaks in their copper
pipes, any leaky pipe is noth-
ing to screw around with.
'A one-eighth-inch hole in
the pipe can mean a loss of
10,000-12,000 gallons of


water a month," Ace D~iraFlo
owner Gary Gould said from
his Houston office. That
translates into big money.
Ace DuraFlo is part of a
growing' industry of repiping
alternative companies. They
stop leaks by blowing an anti-
corrosion epoxy liner into
pipes.
The cost is roughly the
same as repiping but can be
done in a day or two without
tearing up the house.

Park ranger proposal may soon reappear


Land management becomes a critical issue when
local governments acquire a lot of it. A proposal is
in the works to provide park rangers who perform


a wide variety of function

BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

A good idea fell off the
Sarasota County radar screen
last year when it seemingly
got lost in a debate about
whether to ban smoking at
public beaches. It may be
about to reappear.
Land management offi-
cials are once again dis-
cussing the advantages of
park rangers.
"We had a meeting last
week and talked about what
makes sense with respect to
our parks, environmental
lands and trail system," said
John McCarthy, the county's
parks and recreation director.
"There is more homework to
do before we make another
pitch for this."
Any pitch for park rangers
would ultimately require the
county commission's blessing
- probably during the bud-


get deliberation process -
based on exactly what the
rangers would do, how much
they would be paid, and
where they would be sta-
tioned.
There is a history to the
issue of county park rangers
that would have to be revisit-
ed if a proposal moves for-
ward.
The county used to employ
park rangers, but they were
absorbed into the sheriff's
department as part of a cost-
savings initiative and subse-
quently disappeared.
"Most counties that ac-
quire a lot of environmentally
sensitive land employ rangers
to help supervise them,"
McCarthy said. "Collier and
Lee counties saw a need. We
would have to identify the
costs and decide whether
rangers could be provided
with our existing resources."
Last year, the county com-


mission briefly considered
park rangers to help resolve a
littering problem at public
beaches and parks. As mat-
ters currently stand, sheriff's
deputies have to witness such
acts to arrest offenders,
something that rarely if
ever happens.
Then the overall issue of
littering got wrapped up in a
debate about whether to pro-
hibit smoking at public
beaches because discarded
cigarette butts are difficult to
clean up.
The debate eventually sub-
sided, and along with it the
park rangers proposal.
"Park rangers may have
fallen off the public's radar
screen, but we've worked
behind the scenes to gather
position descriptions and
considered how best to pro-
vide oversight for the rails-to-
trails system now that the
county has purchased a 12-
mile corridor," McCarthy
said.
"One of the responsibilities
a couple of rangers could
assume is organizing volun-
teers who ride the trail," he
continued, "like those who


now keep an eye on Venetian
Waterway Park. They are out
there on bikes every day.
Rangers could coordinate
volunteer programs."
Lee County currently em-
ploys park rangers who work
with sheriffs deputies to pro-
vide public oversight at parks,
beaches and on environmen-
tally sensitive lands that have
been set aside for preserva-
tion.
All of them have code en-
forcement training and can
issue citations.
"Rangers could assist law
enforcement, and help deter-
mine how we manage expan-
sive acreage, long and skinny
parcels such as the rail corri-
dor and high-volume loca-
tions such as our public
beaches where there is a lot of
litter," McCarthy said.
"We wouldn't expect them
to break up fights," he contin-
ued. "That's when they would
reach out for help from law
enforcement. But they could
certainly have code enforce-
ment authority and provide
public education. Rangers are
the bread and butter of our
state park system."


Thirty years of preserving

the 'original' Florida


BY FRAN PALMERI
SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUN


He has worked as a profes-
sional land manager from
Amelia Island on the Georgia
border to the
Florida Keys --
and all across IF
the state. -
For the ,
past 30 years, --. '
John Roche,
the parkman- .."'..
ager at Oscar
Scherer State
Park in Os- Roche
prey, has been
with the Florida Park Service
protecting the "original" Flor-
ida.
His current job: preserving
the last remaining acreage of
coastal scrub, 90 percent of
which has been lost to devel-
opment and citrus farming,
so that at Oscar Scherer, visi-
tors can continue to be greet-
ed by "old-time" residents -
Florida scrub jays and gopher
tortoises, both endangered
species.
He's worn various "hats"
during the 30 years of his


career. As a law enforcement
officer, plane crashes, car
accidents and boat sinkings
were all ih a day's work. One
New Year's Eve, John found
himself waist deep in a man-
grove creek rescuing sur-
vivors from a sunken boat.
A conservationist at heart,
he helped preserve lignum
vitae trees in the Keys. Losing
a 3,500-year-old tree would
be losing a piece of Florida
treasure.
He managed a "head-start"
program for sea turtles, work-
ing beside the Long Key Shark
Institute, Flipper's Sea School.
At John's urging, the people of
Layton decided to remove
from all public areas Brazilian
pepper, an exotic tree that
forces out native species.
His interests range from
Florida's cultural history to
baseball to fishing, not just
dropping in a line but also
teaching other people to fish.
Next spring, Oscar Scherer
will hold several fishing clin-
ics.
John lives in the park with
his wife, Amy. They have two
grown sons.

Indians comeback secures playoff berth


Venice rallies to defeat
Lakewood Ranch in
must-win game.

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Venice High football fans
had witnessed similar scenar-
ios this season, and the end-
ings have always been sad.
The Indians would rush
out to early leads, only to
watch opponents come back
and steal the thunder.
The script appeared the
same Thursday night at
Lakewood Ranch.
Venice scored the game's
first two touchdowns, but the
Mustangs roared back to take
a lead midway through the
third quarter.
But there was no disaster
this time.
Venice dominated the final
quarter and the latter half of
the third, scoring three touch-
downs to secure a 35-21 vic-
tory in a key Class 5A District
11 matchup.
Tony Charles scored all
three second half TDs, but it
was a total team effort on
both sides of the ball.
Both Venice and Ranch
entered Thursday's game (it
was moved up from Friday
because of the threat from
Hurricane Wilma) with one
loss in the district.
Manatee had already
clinched first place in the dis-
trict. Thursday's game would
decide who would get the
runnerup spot and advance
to the region playoffs.
That turned out to be
Venice, which improved to 3-
1 in the district and 3-6 over-
all.
Venice was once 1-6 and 1-
1 in district.
"Our backs were against
the wall," Indian coach Nick
Coleman said. "They came
through in a crucial time. Us
coaches knewwe were a good
team, but when you're 1-6, it's
tough to convince the kids
they're good. I'm proud of
them the way they came
through. They faced a lot of
adversity."
At no time was adversity
more apparent than midway
through the third quarter
Thursday night. The Indians
had squandered a 14-0 lead
as Ranch scored on three pass

Charles in charge again


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Tony Charles has been
carrying the Venice High
football team on his back all
fall.
On Thursday night at
Lakewood Ranch, Charles
picked up an even heavier
load.
The 6-foot, 1-inch, 225-
pound, man among boys
carried the ball 27 times for
an amazing 270 yards.
That puts him over the
1,000 yard mark for the sea-
son.
Charles scored four of the
Indians' five touchdowns in


plays.
With 6:51 left in the third
quarter, Venice trailed 21-14
and. hopes of postseason
were slowly slipping away.


a 35-21 victory that pro-'
pelled them into the Class
5A playoffs.
His 73-yard burst through
the line to paydirt in the final
minute flashed both his
brute strength and break-
away speed.
Charles was quick to
point out that it wasn't just
him. He credited his line
with blowing apart the
Ranch defensive front.
Take a bow Kyle Poinsett,
Isaiah Carpenter, Brad
Ackles, Robby Nemecek,
Mike Danski, Cory Carter,
Dan Verchot and Ilya
Vasilevski.
"We had a good practice,"


This is the point where the
Venice players rose up and
played their most inspira-
tional and emotional ball of
the season.


Charles said of preparing for
the Mustangs. "I couldn't
wait to play. It didn't matter
what day it was. It could
have been Wednesday."
Charles believes the team
built on the victory over Port
Charlotte.
"We played with a lot of
emotion," he said. "In the
playoffs, if we come out like
this, we can go a long way."
Charles has also been a
standout on defense at his
safety position. He leads the
team in tackles. He picked
Ranch quarterback Andy
Slowik's desperation heave
in the final seconds of
Thursday's game.


The offense stayed patient
within its game plan. The
Indians used a three-back set.

Senior is dominating
force for Venice High
volleyball.

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Year by year, step by step,
Dana Dumas' volleyball skills
have zoomed up the chart.
Now a 6-foot, 1-inch
Venice High senior, Dumas
has taken her game to anoth-
er level.
Not only is the middle hit-
ter a dominating force at the
net, but she has improved her
all-around skills to help take
Venice to a No. 4 ranking in
Class 5A.
Dumas has been hands
down the chief offensive
threat for the Lady Indians.
She leads the team in kills and
blocks by a wide margin and
is also adept at serving and
playing defense.
"Dana is the engine that
makes our boat go this year,"
said veteran Lady Indian
mentor BrianWheatley. "She's
already near the top of the list
in our record book for kills
and blocks in a season."
Dumas, the lone senior on
the Lady Indians, is No. 3 for
most kills in a season and she

blocker in a season.
"It would have been nice to
have another senior on the
team, but it's been fun playing
and watching us grow," she
said. "We're clicking as a
team."
Dumas picked up valuable
experience as part of last
year's VHS team that made it
to the 5A State Finals. The
Lady Indians came up just
short of winning the state
title. Just being around girls
like Lisa. Hough, Danielle
Durham and Amber
Davidson had to rub off on

That went up to summer.
Then she tried out and made

VHS to face Northeast


STAFF REPORT

The Venice High volley-
ball team, fresh from win-
ning the District 12 tile, will.
face St. Petersburg
Northeast in its regional
opener Tuesday at the
Teepee. Match time is 7 p.m.
Northeast (13-7) lost to St.
Pete Lakewood in five games
in the District 11 final.
"I'd compare Northeast to


Manatee," Venice coach
Brian Wheatley said.
"They have some nice
players, but their schedule
isn't that tough."
If Venice (21-7) wins
against Northeast, it would
play the winner of Tampa
Plant vs. Palm Harbor
University.
The semifinal will be
Saturday. Plant is ranked No.
1 in Class 5A.

moving back a week
The Venice High School
Foundation is moving its
annual Shark's Tooth Golf
Tournament back a week. It
will now take place Oct. 29.
For more information, call
Andy Britton (408-8008) or
Marty Tarala (486-8686).


The line blew the Mustang
defenders away, allowing
running backs Tony Charles
and Kiki Merzius to do their
thing. Quarterback Matt
Wickwire would bootleg left
or right to keep the defense
honest.
The game-tying drive cov-
ered 74 yards on 12 plays.
There was a big 19-yard pass
play from Wickwire to
Merzius. Otherwise, it was
Charles and Merzius pound-
ing the ball.
Charles went in the end
zone from four yards out. Ben
Shipps added the extra point,
and it was tied at 21 with 1:46
left in the third session.
The Venice defense made a
stand, stopping Ranch on
downs at the Indian 33.
The 0 picked up where it
left off on the previous drive.
Eleven running plays covered
the 67 yards. Importantly, the
drive also ate up nearly six
minutes of clock.
The line created a monster
surge with Charles and
Merzius blasting in its wake.
Wickwire had three runs cov-
ering 17 yards. Charles scored
on a 12-yard run to give
Venice the lead at 27-21 lead
with 4:35 remaining in the
game.
Special teams allowed a
long kickoff return to the
Indian 36.
The defense hung tough,
however, stopping the pass-
happy Mustangs on downs at
the 20.
Corner Jimmy Laurie
made a jiice breakup in the
end zone on fourth down.
There -was now only 2:28
left. Merzius ran for seven

Juvenile pre-trial costs still a war of words with state


Florida lawmakers have determined counties that
can afford to pay will be billed. The cost-shifting
maneuver is retaliation for a 1998 constitutional
amendment.


BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

When Florida lawmakers
rejected a $90 million "buy-
out" offer last spring from
counties that are forced to pay
pretrial costs for incarcerated
juveniles, it set the stage for a
war of words that will heat up
at least once
every year un-
less the dis-
pute is some-
how resolved.
On Oct. 11, '
the county
commission
revisited an
unpopular is-
sue it has dis- Ley
cussed many
times: namely, the state's
decision to charge only those
counties that can afford it for
costs incurred before a juve-
nile's case is resolved by the
state court system.
"This situation is going to
get a lot worse," County
Administrator Jim Ley pre-
dicted. "The Florida Depart-
ment of Juvenile Justice is
underfunded and undercapi-
talized."
There are estimates the
county's annual bill will reach
$1.2 million this year and
climb to $2 million next year.
There is a history to this
squabble. Counties used to
deal with their own juvenile
problems, some far better
than others. State lawmakers
assumed responsibility for
juvenile programs in the mid-
1970s to make them uniform,
and annually budgeted for
them.
As the years passed, state
lawmakers slowly began to
shift some of the pretrial costs
back to counties. By the
1990s, many counties were
paying a portion of those
costs and unhappy about it.
The dispute reached a boiling
point by the late '90s.
When counties charged
that state lawmakers were
intentionally underfunding
the state court system and
successfully lobbied in 1998
for passage of a constitutional
amendment known as Re-
vision 7 of Article V it forced
the legislature to allocate
more money beginning in
2004.
Therefore, it came as no
surprise when the lawmakers
retaliated with a $90 million
annual cost-shifting maneu-
ver and billed counties that
could afford it for the pretrial
expenses incurred from the
time juveniles are incarcerat-
ed until their cases are
resolved in court.
"Sarasota County pays,"
said James Schulz, the coun-
ty's criminal justice policy
coordinator. "The cost was
almost $1 million last year. It
may go to $2 million next
year. There is no formula for
how the state's bills to coun-
ties are arrived at."
Almost 30 of Plorida's 67
counties are identified as
"constrained" by state law-
makers and do not receive
annual bills for pretrial juve-
nile services. So, the cost-
shifting maneuver perma-
nently adopted by the

In spring 2004, the Legis-


lature's first attempt to shift
the $90 million annual bill to
counties was challenged in
court as an "unfunded man-
date" that lacked the required
two-thirds votes. It was
approved a second time by
the required margin in both
chambers.
Sarasota County and the

Department of Juvenile Jus-
tice rarely see eye to eye on
issues that involve money. In
1998, the county fell out of
favor with state officials when
it failed to provide land for a
52-bed detention center rec-
ommended by state planners.
As a result, local juveniles
are processed at a juvenile


assessment center located in
the county jail and transport-
ed to a Manatee County
detention center. The remote
facility makes it difficult for
family members to visit, and
a long drive for those officers
who arrest juveniles in areas
such as Venice and North
Port.

The proposed 52-bed de-
tention center was never
embraced by the county
commission, which at the
time was embroiled in a 1998
election-year debate about
where to construct additional
jail cells. State officials finally
gave up and dropped the pro-
posal.

Call to report suspected price gouging


As we all hold our collective breath and
carefully watch the path of Hurricane
Wilma, we should be vigilant for
instances of price gouging.
Caring for our families and property, of
course, take precedence over anything else.
But it would be helpful if all of us make a note
when we see gas stations suddenly hike
prices by 10 to 20 cents a gallon.
And that is not the only type of price goug-
ing we might expect although it is the
most visible and perhaps the most annoying.
Last week, Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services. Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson said the state is seeking fines of


$22,000 from seven gas stations that alleged-
ly gouged customers during hurricanes earli-
er this year.
The stations hiked their prices between 17
cents and 34 cents per gallon.
State law prohibits charging excessive or
exorbitant prices for essential items during
the threat of a hurricane or other natural dis-
aster. That law does not just cover the cost of
fuel.
AVenice-area consumer was unexpected-
ly charged a flat $40 to top off a propane tank
by a gas station that in the past charged only
for the amount of propane needed. That
incident has been reported.


Other items whose price may suddenly
rise include water, ice, lumber and housing.
The only justification for any significant hike
in price of those and other items is addition-
al costs to the retailer that may be passed
along to consumers.
"We will not tolerate anyone exploiting
out citizens and hope that these series of
actions send a strong message that we will
fully investigate and go after any instances of
price-gouging that we find," Bronson said.
We wish the state showed equal exuber-
ance for holding the line on insurance costs
in the wake of last year's hurricanes.
Nevertheless, it is a good thing that Bronson


and the state are eager to pursue those who
would take advantage of a natural disaster
for profit.
Everyone has more important duties this
weekend, but if you notice a significant
increase in the cost of gasoline or other
essentials, you should report it. All you have
to do is call the price-gouging hot line, (800)
435-7352. Just this hurricane season alone
there have been 10,000 calls and more than
3,000 complaints of price gouging in the
state.
Don't be shy about adding to those num-
bers. Businesses should not profit from suf-
fering caused by a hurricane.

BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


The county has
announced that it is bringing
water to Nokomis. That has
almost everyone in Nokomis
excited because the water
quality in general is pretty
poor.
.---At.our-.house-. we. have .a
reverse osmosis system but
still welcome the change. If
nothing else, property values
should improve with county
water.
Homeowners got notices
in the mail that the county
would like right of way on or
near their property to run the
water lines. The diagram they
sent us was just of the area
that we live in, which has
about 11 houses. It showed
the road and the lot plats but
did not show where the lines
were going. I couldn't see
agreeing to something when I
didn't know where it was
going.
The county called me to
ask ff I was going to sign. I said
that I would like to better
understand the project before;
I signed. He said that the lines
would be going under the
road. I asked where exactly
and he said he would have to
have the engineering firm call
me. Within. a couple of hours
they called. I was impressed
with such a quick response.
I asked the engineer where
the pipes were going and he
reiterated that they would be
going under the road. I was
OK with that because that
would not disrupt anything in
the yard.
But I probed a little further.
Where exactly in. the road
would it be going? He said the
road description is for 30 feet
and the actual road is about
20 feet. I started to have this
uneasy feeling. So I asked if it
was going across my yard. He
said yes, it would be between
my mail box and flower bed
on one side of the driveway,
or about 4 to 5 feet in the yard.
I was a little perturbed, as
they had tried to get me to
sign by making me believe
they were going under the
road. But that wasn't the piece
that upset me the most.
The engineer explained
how it would then travel
under the driveway causing
them to tear up the driveway
about 5 feet. I asked why they
didn't tunnel under the drive-
way as we do in the phone
company business all the
time. He said that was too
expensive.


I said it was going to look a
little funny, part brand-new
driveway, part very old and
cracked. I asked if they were
going to have to take out part
of the driveway if they could
just take it out and leave it for
me to put pavers back on the
whole driveway, and they
could just credit me for the
concrete work they wouldn't
have to do. He indicated I'd
have to ask the county.
He went on to mention
that they would go across my
lawn, taking out the sprin-
klers in the process. They
would put them back, of
course, along with new sod.
I asked if the sprinklers
would be able to go back
where they were before or
near the road, and he wasn't
sure. Without that I would
have a lot of browned-out
grass. These, incidentally, are
my rose garden sprinklers
and you know all the prob-
lems I have had there.
I called the county back
and told them my desire on
the driveway, and they said
they had never done that
before. (Doesn't it always
drive you nuts when some-
one says that?) I asked if the
sprinklers would return to
their original spot and he was
unsure. I also asked if he
would get back to me on my
questions. That was the last I
heard, two months ago.
Since then, a few weeks
ago, someone I know called
and asked why I was one of 19
who had held out. I explained
the above to him and he said
he was going to contact the
county.
By this week I still had not
heard, so I called. They had
turned it over to someone
and basically forgotten about
it.
They since have gotten
back to me, and won't give me
credit for the cement. The
sprinklers, at least, will return
to their same position. They
will take out a section of the
driveway and then pour the
concrete. At that point then I
will have someone come in
and take it .out 'so I can put
pavers in.
Needless to say, I haven't
got that warm, fuzzy feeling
about the county's service on
this project.

By's Crack: Nothing
can replace the modern
swimsuit, and it almost
has.

One person who read my
column last week about
heights came in and asked
why, since this issue is so
important to everyone, it isn't
put up for referendum.
Sounds sort of interesting. I
would guess if they did that,
nothing would ever get done.
I mentioned to him how

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Whatever you think, tell it to city council


Editor:
Venice is at a crossroads.
What you se6 here and now is basically the place that you
chose to live in and be a part of. Most places, however beauti-
ful and tranquil, are subject to change. Change is inevitable
due to economic necessity, the desire of new residents and the
continuing need to update the infrastructure to support
growth and provide for the future.
We all want a "viable Venice."
In order to achieve want we want, the majority of citizens
must be heard. If not, those relatively few who express them-
selves will be the ones who speak for us all and, therefore, con-
trol our future.
City council is a responsible, qualified body of people who
come from our own ranks. We elected them. We all agree that
they have the well-being of Venice and the wishes b'of the com-
munity at heart. We trust that their decisions reflect our senti-
ments.
, In order to insure that they are aware of the majority's views,
the majority must speak out.
If you can, come to the city council meeting at 1:30 p.m. at
city hall on Oct. 25. If not, please send letters addressed to the
council or e-mails to: lstelze@ci.venice.fl.us. These e-mails will
be given to the council members.
Do you know the definition of: EnvisionVenice? Conditional
use? Height by right? Commercial mixed-use? Density per
acre? Condominium hotel?
Show council you are interested, express your views and get
answers to any questions that you may have. Let's preserve,
protect and provide for our fair city.

Travelers went on
their own dimes
Editor:
I would like to clean up a
misunderstanding about
Epiphany arid the wonderful
trip to Ireland this past July.
All ,of adventurer-travelers


went from New York and on
to Ireland paying their own
way.
Some were not Epiphany
parishioners, but we all
became friends and family.
We were all deeply blessed
and touched by God, who


truly loves all of us, with the
guidance of Father Michael
Cannon.
As with all our homes,
maintenance is a must.
Epiphany Cathedral Church
and parish is ours and we
must care for it. Epiphany
became a parish in the mid-
dle 1950s. The school was
built in the early 1960s the
cathedral was built in 1980.
As we know as homeown-
ers we need to maintain our
home's walls in and out. Roof,
floors, plumbing, electric,
doors, windows and appli-
ances must be maintained.
As a family grows, so does
the church, and we must keep
up with change and mainte-
nance.
All donations are wel-
comed by the Epiphany fami-
ly and foundation.

Next time, think
before you call
Editor:
As is so often the case with
hotline callers, the informa-
tion they pass along is erro-
neous.
If he had done just a little
research, he'd have found that
the Epiphany travel trip to
Ireland was paid for by the
participants, not the church.
As usual, it is so much eas-


ier to condemn than to con-
firm.

Setting the
record straight
Editor:
Dan Boone stated that I
was Gary Anderson's cam-
paign manager. This is not
true and is a matter of public
record. All one has to do is
look at the reports filed by
Anderson, where my name
never appears.
Campaign manager is a
title and a job. Anderson
never offered the position to
me, nor would I have accept-
ed the position or the title.
Boone also stated that I got
the case number wrong.
Here's the original sentence as
submitted to you: "Levine vs.
City of Venice, Calamaras,
Hunt and Slapp (2004- CA-
10575-C)."
Here's the case page:
http://www.clerk.co.saraso-
ta.fl.us/srqapp/civdetail.asp?
tb_searchby=Name&tb_searc
hfor=2004+CA+010575+SC.
The case number is correct; a
leading zero is omitted, a
common practice.
Further, the ruling that
Hunt be dropped from the
lawsuit is currently under
appeal.

1 6A scMiCr rGinni IFR SUl IN


LET 'EM HAVE IT! IS THERE A STOP SIGN IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD
THAT MOTORISTS SEEM TO IGNORE? CALL US AT 207-1111.

Those Yankees have ruined Florida


Their town. I have a suggestion for your paper. The Our Town
section needs to be changed to read "Their Town." Those of us
who grew up here and were raised here no longer feel it is our
town. Thanks to the influx of Yankees who seem to want every-
thing changed so that it's more like where they came from.
Florida's not the easy-going, laid-back place that it was when
we were growing up. It's so sad.


Broken gates. About the
dog beach: Both of the
entrance gates to the small
dog play area are broken.
They have been broken since
last May. Despite repeated
phone calls, they have never
been fixed.
ARB needs review. What is
the Architectural Review
Board thinking? The new
house in the historic district
in the 100 block of South
Harbor Drive has multi-
brown roof tiles instead of
orange. It's time to review the
Architectural Review Board.
Bring back Clinton. Those
of us who voted for Mr. Bush
must now face the fact that
we voted for a man who is not
qualified to hold that office.
We must also realize that the
only solution to putting our
country back on track is to
persuade Mr. Clinton to run
for the office again. He has
the respect of the world lead-
ers, has proven his qualifica-
tions and has said many
times that he loves the job.
Reconsider. I certainly
hope that with the escalating
prices of gas that the city of
Venice is going to reconsider
its scheduled bridge open-
ings. All of us work very hard
for the little money we make
in this town, and I hate to see
it going up in fumes for
boaters.
Clean up. I'd like to make a
comment concerning terror-
ism on the streets: robbery,
rapes, physical assaults. Yet
we have the nerve to try to
tell people how to live else-
where in the world, that we
are going to eliminate terror-
ists on their behalf, and we
are spending hundreds of
billions of dollars in the
process. It's time to clean up
our own country and spend
the money wisely. Our own
government can't schedule
evacuations of people when
in danger and we can't even
administer flu shots without
making a mess of it nation-
wide. It is time to get our act
together.
No opposition. If the new
CMU district consisted of a
nine-story building with
bingo halls and shuffleboard
courts, there wouldn't be any
opposition.
Shame on you. This is an
open letter to the person or
persons who stole money
from the Salvation Army. You
should be ashamed of your-
selves. That money was to go
for people of the Katrina cat-
astrophe. How would you
like it if someone stole the


money that was meant for
Dennis if we had been hit?
While Capt. Fuller was away,
helping people, you were
stealing food, water and
other supplies from them in
the form of money. The Army
does a great deal to help the
people. Someday, God forbid
you may be one of them. I
feel sorry for you and hope
you can live with yourself
with this on your conscience.
I hope that someday you will
get on your knees and ask
forgiveness.
Don't get it. I am calling
about John Ryan and Jim
Woods and some columns-
they wrote. I feel like those
guys seem to think nobody
understands that Venice is a
wonderful city but them-
selves. In their writing, when
they're sort of in favor of
development, they seem to
equate development with
money, and money with
good. Really, I think the peo-
ple of Venice have a deep
appreciation of how beauti-
ful. our city is. These guys
don't seem to get it that peo-
ple don't want big, tall, loom-
ing buildings in sweet little
Venice. I hope that the city
council, the chamber of
commerce and all of these
people can get together and
represent people's wishes.
Doesn't save. I'm a Venice
resident calling regarding
turning lights off at the tennis
courts an hour early. I don't
see where that really saves us
a lot of electricity, if we're
going to leave them on the
football fields, the baseball
fields with no one around and
twice as many lights.
Venice slobs. I really am
exasperated. On my early
morning walk this morning, I
picked up the following items
that Venice slobs throw
around as they went by: two
water bottles, a root beer bot-
tle, a Sierra Mist can, a Bud
Light bottle, a Mountain Dew
can, and a Michelob Light
bottle. I do not understand
why people complain about
dogs when for every piece of
dog poop that some careless
owner has left, there are at
least 20 cans or bottles. I think
the trash baskets on the cor-
ners of the streets are long
overdue.-
Hurricane volunteers. I just
read all the wonderful stories
about the hurricane volun-
teers who went to help for
free. I actually know some-
one who is now out there
helping, but she's making a
couple thousand dollars. It

just seems really crooked
with all these volunteers and
other people are making
thousands of dollars helping
out over there.
Accountable. It is a shame
that the impeachment
process is so slow that there is
not enough time remaining
to hold President Bush and
his administration account-
able for their ambivalence,
incompetence and corrup-
tion.
Do something. Child
abuse is everybody's busi-
ness. I saw a woman abusing
a little girl today and I inter-
vened. Like many of you, I'm
a senior citizen, but we
mustn't let that stop us or
make us afraid to do the right
thing. If you witness abuse,
say or do something.
Generally, it's a good idea to
carry a cell phone and call
the police. Call attention to,
the incident in some way.
Don't ignore abuse.
Florida rules. I compliment
the crash course, new Florida
rules article in the Gondolier
Sun. Do hope it can be added
once in November and once
in January to benefit our
tourists on Florida rules of the
road. Thank you for this arti-
cle.
Tax breaks. While they're
talking about affordable
housing, why don't who do offer affordable hous-
ing and affordable rents get a
tax break to help out those
who still can't afford an
$800,000 home?
Airport pollution. I'm still
wondering if anything will be
done about the jet fuel and
the noise pollution from the
Venice airport. It's been
almost three years since the
mayor of Venice said we were
going to look into putting up
vapor and noise barriers at
the airport. Noise is one
thing, but the vapors are
more serious when the jets
sit there in idle. They can be,
dangerous to a person's
health.

within the city must go
before the voters. That has
pretty well eliminated such
requests. Even a church spire
got denied, which I think is a
little overboard.
Another person who has
been active in Waging the
fight against height and den-
sity felt my characterization
of the people in those groups
as noncontributors to the
community was unfair.
Certainly as a general state-
ment it did not recognize the
hard work of some, and to
that point they are right, but
as an overall characterization
I feel it was accurate.

Gary Anderson pulled
papers and filed to run for
city council against Rick
Tacy. We always like to see
debate on the issues, but
unfortunately Mr.- Anderson
failed to show to the Venice
Aviation Society forum set
for Wednesday night or the
joint Rotary/ Sertoma forum
Thursday at noon. He also
canceled his appearance on
Pam Johnson's Venice TV
show. He wasn't at the Hob
Nob either, where people can
meet the candidates and dis-
cuss issues. ,
It is awfully discourteous
and embarrassing not to
show up to forums. It shows
disrespect to those who
organized them and to the
process. Although certainly
he could have had personal
problems that kept him from.
appearing, someone from
those organizations
deserved the courtesy of a
call.
It looks like Mr. Anderson
is making a mockery of the


process, causing people to
waste their time and money.
If he does not want to talk
about the issues, he should
drop out of the race.

Today's Ism: When I said "I
do," I did not mean laundry.

Congratulations to the
city, and Marty Black in par-
ticular, for the efforts to help
in the fight for low-income
housing. They have entered
into partnership with
Habitat For Humanity. to
build some townhouses on a
small parcel the city had
once planned for public ser-
vice buildings.
Once again The Waterford
Company has helped by
offering parking for these lots
on its adjacent property. Also
in the deal is room for a satel-
lite YMCA.
The sad thing is that the
county needs to step forward
to help with the low-income
housing problem in a similar
manner.
It should be noted they
have given money to help
fund the housing trust, much
of it money from the sale of
North Port lots.
However, none of the
money from the housing
trust is targeted at .low-
income groups.
I hope they can make that
a separate component of
their effort on housing. They
missed their big opportunity
in North Port but do have a
lot of other parcels that could


go to help.

At least our hurricane
shelter, the Venice
Community Center, was
done in time for Wilma,
though it hasn't been certi-
fied.
It is sad there is no Sun
Fiesta but the girls of
Women's Sertoma have
rescheduled it for Nov. 11-13.
Unfortunately, the parade


has been canceled. Bonnie
Kaiser and many others had
worked hard on the parade.
We won't be able to see the
politicians riding in convert-
ibles.

It is that time to get an
entry into the Christmas
Boat Parade, to be held the
first Saturday in December.
This is an event with tens of
thousands of spectators from
the Albee Bridge to the
Circus Bridge.
It is a great event benefit-
ing many. youth organiza-
tions. Entry fee is very mini-
mal. Join in for a fun time.
To learn more and get an
application, call Jeana
Nottingham at 207-1201 or
John Osmulski at 809-8100.

After the hurricane I hope
we can free the palms from
being tied up on Business 41.
I think they have been pro-
tected the correct amount of
time. Let them go from this
cruel bondage.

The hospital is marching
along with its futuristic new
look. This matches the exten-
sive renovations inside. They
have redone the third floor
and are now working on the
second and fourth floors.
The "minor stucco work"
that didn't require any
approvals for style is certain-
ly giving it a much more
clean and modern look.
Being as community
minded as they have been in
just a short time, to ensure
this work fits the Italian
theme, they picked as the
color of their racing stripe -
Ragu.

Florida sheriffs announce legislative priorities


STAFF REPORT


The Florida Sheriff's Asso-
ciation Board of Directors
and Legislative Committee
met in Ocala, Fla., on Oct. 10
to discuss and formulate the
association's legislative priori-
ties.
The continuing focus for
Florida's sheriffs is to improve
the retirement benefits for
high-risk employees and 9-1-'
1 operators and telecommu-
nicators.
"Our hard-working law
enforcement and detention
members deserve a quality
retirement program that will
support their quality of life
needs and reward them for
years of productive and, in
many cases, dangerous pub-
lic service. When our employ-
ees devote an entire career to
the law enforcement or de-
tention profession, they de-
serve a fair and secure retire-
ment plan," said Sheriff Kevin
Beary, president of the Florida
Sheriff's Association.
For the employees
The Florida's Sheriffs Asso-
ciation members' proposals
in support of their employees
are:
1) Sheriffs continue to sup-
port the effort to increase the
health care stipend for retired


sheriff's office employees
through the Florida Re-
tirement System. Current law
provides a $5 health-care
stipend per month for each
full year an employee worked.
The sheriffs support the
compromise language from
last session that provides a
gradual increase in this sub-
sidy over the next several fis-
cal years to help retired em-
ployees pay the higher costs
for medical insurance or for
out-of-pocket medical ex-
penses.
,2) Sheriffs support en-
hancing the retirement bene-
fits of jail nurses and civilian
law enforcement pilots work-
ing in high-risk conditions.
The sheriffs believe that jail
nurses and civilian pilots
should receive the FRS "spe-
cial-risk" retirement rate be-
cause these are dangerous
jobs with exposure to a higher
risk of harm than most other
public employees.
Jail nurses are daily ex-
posed to dangerous felons
and dangerous diseases
through exposure to blood-
borne pathogens and body
fluids of jail inmates. Pro-
viding special-risk retirement
for civilian pilots would bring
them in line with other sworn
law enforcement pilots and
pilots working for state agen-


cies who are already desig-
nated as special-risk employ-
ees.
3) The sheriffs also contin-
ue to support changing the
basis for calculating all FRS
employee retirement income
from an average of an
employee's highest five year's
salary to an average of the
highest three year's salary.
This change would increase
retirement benefits for law
enforcement employees, and
be similar to retirement lawin
many other states.
4) Sheriff's also support an.
increase to th-6 retirement
rate calculation for 9-1-1
operators and sheriff's office
telecommunicators.
Currently, these employees
receive the basic FRS retire-
ment rate of 1.6 percent (reg-
ular-rit- category).
The shei;ffs suggest an
increase to a 2-percent rate in
recognition that these jobs
are higher stress and result in
a higher bum-out rate than
other public employees.
9-1-1 operators and tele-
communicators are highly
trained employees who daily
interact with the public, help-
ing them to receive emer-
gency services.
These employees work in a
high-paced and high-stress
atmosphere.


Change some laws
The sheriffs also made the
following suggestions for leg-
islative changes:
1) Modify and strengthen
the Jessica Lunsford Act. The
sheriffs propose strengthen-
ing the sexual predator and
sexual offender legislation in
the state of Florida by:requir-
ing Florida driver licenses
and Florida identification'
cards of sexual predators to
provide an identifier to indi-
cate that the holder is a regis-
tered predator, allowing law
enforcement officers to im-
mediately identify a regis-
tered predator regardless of
availability of support sys-
tems; prohibit sexual preda-
tors from staying at any tem-
porary public shelters, with
shelter for predators provided
at county jails or whatever
facility is determined by the
sheriff and the county; and
provide for the forfeiture of
vehicles used to facilitate the
crime of Internet solicitation
of minors.
2) The sheriffs also support
the continued irAependence,
accountability and effective-
ness of. the constitutional
office of the sheriff in the state
of Florida, and will work with
the Florida Legislature to pre-
serve the elected and inde-
pendent status of the office of


sheriff in Florida.
3) Florida's sheriffs also
support measures to increase
enforcement of red-light run-
ning in Florida.
The sheriffs support auto-
mated cameras at intersec-
tions, and other technologies
to aid in enforcement and
compliance to reduce the
deaths and injuries as a result
of careless and reckless dri-
vers.
4) The sheriffs support
strengthening state law relat-
ed to mutual-aid agreements
between city, county and
state law enforcement agen-
cies to increase and enhance
interagency cooperation.
In order to enhance officer
safety, mutual aid agreements
must include notification,
request and permission from
one law enforcement agency
to another when the agency is
working outside its jurisdic-
tion or when operating in
common jurisdictions when
there is a likelihood of more
than one law enforcement
agency engaging in opera-
tions.
The sheriff must be noti-
fled by a nonstatewide police
agency' when any nonstate-
wide police agency is operat-
ing, or intends to operate or
conduct an investigation,
inside the jurisdiction of the


sheriff.
The recent tragedy in Or-
lando resulting in the shoot-
ing death of a law enforce-
ment officer by another offi-
cer from a different agency is
a clear demonstration of the
need for laws to enhance the
safety and effectiveness of
law enforcement. investiga-
tions and operations.
5) In increasing numbers,
county jails are housing state
prisoners, costing county tax-
payers in excess of an esti-
mated $100 million dollars
every year. The sheriffs sup-
port state compensation to
counties for the following
state inmates housed in
county jails: retake warrants;
inmates sentenced to prison
and awaiting commitments;
writs from prison; and per-
sons charged with a felony
violation of probation.
In addition to these legisla-
tive concerns, Florida sheriffs
also support other good legis-
lation that provides a tough,
common sense approach to
fighting crime in Florida.
Sheriffs will work with
other law enforcement part-
ners and good government
advocates to make Florida a
safer, betterplace to live, and
to improve the working and
retirement conditions of law
enforcement employees.

HOME TOUCH by Michael Walsh of Universal Press Syndicate



Exterior design: Multiple colors, textures lend curb appeal


While the concept
of interior design
seems under-
stood, the notion
of exterior design
apparently is not. The evi-
dence is apparent nationwide
in new subdivisions consist-
ing of homes that are virtually
featureless and, except for
house numbers, all but
indistinguishable from one
another.
It's odd, to say the least, that
many of us agonize over
colors, patterns and textures
inside our homes, but pay
scant attention to those same
elements outside. It's also
perplexing why we strive so
mightily to craft highly
personalized interior spaces
that don't look like anyone
else's, but settle for exterior
surfaces that look almost
exactly like everyone else's.
Fortunately, if you live in a
plain-Jane house or are
planning to build a new
.home, you don't have to be an
architect to understand the
issues. All you have to know is
that, every bit as much as
inside, color, pattern and
texture are powerful forces for
change outside.
They can make your house
appealing to look at. They can
distinguish it from the clones
around it. They can help
transform a house into home
that is a unique expression of
who you are and what you
value.
Where to start? First, take a
lawn chair from the back yard
to the sidewalk or curb out
front, turn it around, sit down
and take a long, hard, critical
look at the front of your
house. Often we get so used to
the outside of our homes that
we don't really see them
anymore.
Pretend you're seeing it for
the first time. Compare it to
the houses on either side. Is
the view a pleasant one? If you
were driving by, would you


Crane Performance Siding photo-
Multiple colors, patterns, textures and architectural details are strong antidotes to exterior uniformity and monotony.


slow down to notice how
attractive it is? Is it a view you
find satisfying and gratifying
when you pull into the
driveway after work?
Next, educate your eye.
Learn to appreciate what
makes a home's exterior
attractive and personally
appealing. Walk or drive
around your own community
to see what other homeown-
ers have done that you find


worthy.
It's likely that just in com-
muting to work or driving to
the supermarket, there are
certain houses that always get
your attention. What is it
about them? What lessons do
they provide that could be
applied to your own home? '
Then expand your database.
Look at books and magazines
devoted to home design.
Taunton Press


(www.taunton.com) has three
volumes on bookstore shelves
now that could be invaluable:
"Good House Parts," "The
House You Build" and "Pat-
terns of Home." In the realm
of magazines, three from
Better Homes & Gardens are
especially worthy: Building
Ideas, Remodeling Ideas and
Beautiful Homes, all of which
are available at groceries,
pharmacies and newsstands.


Assemble a file folder or
notebook of book and maga-
zine photos that appeal to
you. Review it periodically
and you'll probably begin to
notice what they have in
common that grabs your
attention. The objective here
is to refine your tastes and
identify your favorites.
The goal of armchair
research is to find ideas, ,
inspiration and solutions that


can be duplicated or approxi-
mated on the outside of your
own home. Once you see what
architects, designers and
other ordinary hobneowners
have done, you'll understand
better what the options are,
and how such essentials as
color, pattern and texture can
give shape, visual interest,
charm and character to the
outside of a house:
Among the things you're
likely to notice is that the
most appealing exteriors
usually exhibit two, and often
three, paint colors, two or
three siding materials and a
variety of window shapes and
roof lines.
Light-colored clapboard-
style siding provides both
color and linear pattern. Stone
veneer can be used as an
accent cladding both at
ground level and above the
front door, adding earthy
texture. Columns add archi-
tectural interest to the entry.
Contrasting shutters add even
more color, pattern and
texture.
The materials needed to
transform an unremarkable
exterior are hardly exotic.
Paint, various siding materi-
als, shutters, porch columns,
windows, doors and the
decorative trim to go around
them are all at your nearest
home center or available
through your architect or
building contractor.
Making the best use of.them
in creative and imaginative
ways can transform an
ordinary house into an
extraordinary one that is
distinctive and has a face you
and your neighbors will want
to look at.
The same strategies and
materials can also improve
your home's "curb appeal"
when the time comes to sell.
In a competitive housing
market, a home that distin-
guishes itself from the crowd
can command a higher price
or sell faster.

flexibility to create an attrac-
tive blend of homes. The
design takes advantage of the
natural scenery and breath-
taking views of the Caloosa-
hatchee River. We really
wanted to connect the
residents with downtown Fort
Myers' revitalized historic
district and showcase the
waterfront lifestyle," said Tom
Denslow, president of DSDG
Inc.
Riverwalk at Sunset resi-
dences include such premium
features as a private elevator
to each residence, designer
kitchens with granite counter-
tops and European-style


cabinetry, Sub Zero refrigera-
tor and freezer, marble
flooring and vanity tops in all
baths, and solar-tinted,
hurricane-resistant glass in all
windows and sliding glass
doors. The community offers
a riverside, heated, disappear-
ing-edge swimming pool and
spa, a fitness room and social
room with piano bar.
"Riverwalk at Sunset
provides the consumer with
an outstanding real estate
value in the heart of Fort
Myers. It is within walking
distance of the central
downtown district and public
yacht marina, and the clever
mix of living options offers
residents a more personal
connection with the commu-
nity," said Fynes.


"This is unlike anything else
being built downtown. We
anticipate a great deal of
interest in this project, given
the quality and design of the
residencies," said Lonborg.
"Riverwalk at Sunset is one
of the few downtown condo
projects that offers such a
variety of homes. "The size of
the units is very attractive, but
the high degree of quality is
equally important to the
project's success," added
Lonborg.
Thomas Fynes, P.A. or Vicki
Lonborg began taking reser-
vations for Riverwalk at
Sunset Monday.

Which variety blooms for you?

Make your pick from two great active adult communities.

Are you partial to an exotic orchid, a fragrant rose or a colorful hibiscus? Naturally, it's a matter of personal
preference. Which is what our 10-15-20 Program is all about finding a Centex home that's your preferred variety.
10-15-20 means you get $10,000 off homes to be built,, $15,000 off homes in progress, and $20,000 off nearly completed
homes. You can use your savings however you prefer: towards closing costs, lower your interest rate, or towards the
cost of options and upgrades. Our 10-15-20 Program is available in most Southwest Florida communities. Whether
you're a.10, 15 or 20, we help you bloom where you're planted.

Centex Homes donates $100,000 to JCatrina victims


C entex Homes of i
Southwest Florida has
donated $100,000 in
response to Hurt icTne
Katrina.
The cash donation,
announced by Tim Ruenmler,
Centex Homes division
president, was made in the
first days of the relief efforts
to Convoy of Hope, a group of
disaster first responders.
Convoy of Hope was the
first group to arrive in Char-
lotte County last year after
Hurricane Charley tore
through Southwest Florida.
They were also the first group
to arrive in Mississippi one
day after Katrina hit that area.
Convoy of Hope provides

immediate-need items
directly to the victims such as
food, water, blankets, pet
' supplies and first aid supplies.
Their trucks go into remote.
areas and set up distribution
locations. More information
can be found about this
organization at www.convoy-
ofhope.org
In addition to the donation
to Convoy of Hope, Ruemler
has encouraged employees of
Centex Homes of Southwest,
Florida to contact him
personally with any needs for
those who have families in
any of the hard-hit hurricane
areas. Centex
Homes of Southwest Florida
will continue to give to relief
needs, but, states Ruemler,"
we will do all that we can to
especially target our family
members."
Centex Homes of Southwest
Florida, which includes
Naples, Fort Myers and
Sarasota, has been a generous
contributor to charity causes,.
particularly in the communi-
ties in which it builds and


develops homes, and it is no
stranger to disaster relief
efforts.
After Hurricane Charley hit
Florida last year, Centex
Homes and its staff members
provided victims with imme-
diate support, construction
materials, perishable items,
medical and pet supplies, as.
well as comfort.
While 28 members of dihe
Centex Building Services team
worked 28 straight days to i
lead restoration efforts,
weekend volunteer crews, -
comprised of other Centex
Homes staff members, also
helped with repairs in dam-i
aged neighborhoods.
Coming up on Oct. 29,
Centex Homes will host the
15th Annual Great Golf
Giveaway at Cro\wn Colony
Golf & Country Club in Fort
Myers, with efforts to raise
$25,000 for local charities.

ceeds to 12 organizations.

The highly anticipated
new furniture collec-
tion, Barbara Barry
Realized by Henredon,
premieres this month at Robb

"Fashion in home decor
this season reflects transition-
al style, a blend of traditional
and contemporary furniture,
finishes and fabric creating a
timeless design," according to
Kris Kolar, vice president of
interior design for Robb &
Stucky Interiors.
Furniture lines are simple
and sophisticated, classic
silhouettes combine with
comfort for functionality. The
transitional palette incorpo-
rates neutrals and soft, pale
colors for a clean and tranquil
environment.

styling is epitomized by
Barbara Barry Realized by
Henredon," Kolar added.

Goodwill

ambassador

Anyone who knows Laurel
O'Connors knows she likes to
lend a helping hand. When
Laurel watched the Hurricane
Katrina victims she decided
she wanted to do more than
just write a check. Laurel
called the Red Cross, took
training and thought she'
would be sloshing around in
mud in Mississippi helping
victims.
Instead, the Red Cross flew
Laurel to Virginia where she
worked with a computer net-
work and spoke directly with
victims trying to help solve
their post hurricane chal-
lenges.
Laurel has many stories to
tell.
Venice is blessed to have
this goodwill ambassador.

Former Taylor Ranch Ele-
mentary School students and

BY JEREMY ROTTGEN
STAFF WRITER

It's funny how the blues
makes so many people feel
good.
Barbara Strauss realized
this almost 15 years ago when
she took the reigns of the
Sarasota Blues Fest. Ac-
cording to Strauss it wasn't
easy it gave her the blues
the first couple years. She
took over the festival after it
was started by the Sarasota
Blues Society in 1990.
"They went bankrupt in
1992," Strauss said. "I took it
over in 1993. Everybody told
me I was out of my mind.
Nobody, thought the festival.
would work here. I thought it'
was time. The first year we
struggled a little bit. The sec-.
ond year Greg Allman came
and played. After that, that
was it. They came, they liked it
and they kept coming back."
I Hating Greg Allman play in
1994 pretty much broke any
notion of a failed festival
when 10,000 people attended.
"They always called this
festival the tittle engine that'
could. This is the festival that
did. It got its legs, it stayed up
and running," Strauss said.
The festival is one of the
most successful events in
Sarasota, with the highest
attendance of any single day'
event in the county. At $17 a
ticket, it's a good bargain, too.
Grammy and W.C. Handy
award winners play every
year. Strauss likes to throw in
up and comers.
"It's got young musicians,
old musicians, black musi-
cians, white musicians, wom-
en, men, guitars, keyboards,
harmonica players. singers -
it's just a nice mix of every-
thing you'd wanitb hear."
Since this is the 15th year,
Strauss has decided to make it
a birthday party complete
with fireworks and some
major talent on the stage. She
said it was a testament to die
prior 14 festivals and her
learning experience involved
wvih them.
"I had borrowed money
from friends to put this on-
and I was forced to learn how
to promote. After we got
through '93 I never wanted to
do it again, but because of my
relationship with the Alhnan
Brothers, Greg had found out


that I had a blues fest and he
was a little insulted that I did-
n't invite him and he said, 'I'm
gonna come and play.' I said
'No, hey dude I don't every
want to do that again.' I was
pushed and prodded by a lot
of people to keep going."
Seeing 10,000 people
screaming, yelling, clapping
and dancing made the experi-
ence worthwhile for Strauss.
"You hear that roar that
sound and there isn't a
sound like it. No matter how
much you stress out and beat
yourself over the head and
say, 'Why am I doing this?'
when you hear that and you
look at the faces you go 'This
is why I. do this,' It really
brings a lot of joy to a lot of
people's lives. ,
, The festival is a time out
from the usual day-to-day
issues people deal with every
da\. There are no politics or
religion.
"I'm trying to give every-
body a nice time out," she
said.
Strauss said she likes the.*
blues crowds because they
are easy to deal with.
"I like the blues and I've
done a lot of shows. I've done
heavy metal stuff, classic rock.
I've done benefits with
AC/DC. I like working with
the blues crowd. As far as the
musicians are concerned
there are no egos, they're easy
,to get along with. The crowds
are easy to put up. with.
There's not the drama. There's
not the intensity of the
younger music. I think there's
a time and a place for every-
thing, but this is a pretty laid-
back, comfortable place to
be."
Delbert McClinton
He has been around for a
very long time. He's a Graim-
my Award-winner. Along with
Greg Allman, he's been a
crowd favorite.
According to New West
Records, McClinton is known
as the quintessential Texas
blues rocker with few genre
boundaries during his more
than five decade-spanning
career with threads of coun-
try, rock, pop. soul, folk and
jazz. One of his notable cred-
its is the creation of the har-
monica ritf heard on Bruce
Channel's 1962 No. 1 hit "Hey!
Baby," recorded in his native


PHOTO COURTED OF ALLIGATOR RECORDS
Shemekia is an honored guest and rare treat for the festival.

Fort Worth. The riff provided
the inspiration for the similar
one heard on the Beatles'
"Love Me Do," as played by
John Lennon under the tute-
lage of Delbert McClinton.
McClinton has just releas-
ed a new record, -'Cost of
Living," Aug. 23. The album is
the first new studio recording
by McClinton in more than
three years.
The album is a collection of
13 new tracks, all of which
McClinton had a hand in
writing with the exception of
.I'll Change My Style," which
comes from die classic reper-
toire of the legendary Jimmy
Reed.
Shemekia Copeland
She's maybe one of the
reigning queens of blues right
now. She's a four-time WC.
Handy Award-winner. She
has a big, powerful voice and
is a terrific entertainer. "I like
the people that get up there
and entertain. Shemekia is a
big entertainer," Strauss said.
Copeland, also an Alligator
Records artist, continues to-
tour the world and to win fans
at every stop. She's played with
Buddy Guy and B.B. King, and
has shared the stage with Taj
Mahal, Dr. John and Koko
Taylor, among many others.
She won thehearts and souls of
new fans at the 1998 and 2002
Chicago Blues Festivals, The
North Atlantic Blues Festival,
Nlilwaukee's Summerfest, The
Monterey Jazz Festival, The San
Francisco Blues Festival, The
New York State Blues Festival,
The North Sea Festival in
Holland, The Montreaux lazz
Festival, The New Orleans Jazz
& Heritage Festival, The Lowell
Folk Festival and many others.
With the powerful and
radio-friendly songs on The
Soul Truth and continued
non-stop touring, Shemekia
will continue to reach fans
across all musical genres.
Sonny Landreth on nr
Eric Clapton and a lot of
people in the musical world
are saving that he is the best,
slide guitar player on Earth.
According to Sugar Hill
records, Sonny Landreth, who
received a Grammy nomina-
tion last year in the- Best
Contemporary Blues Album
category for "The Road We're
On," recorded his first-ever
live album at his stomping
grounds at the Grant Street
Dance hall in Lafayette, La.
It's the perfect time for


Landreth to release his first
live album 2004 has been
his most triumphant and di-
verse year of performing.
Landreth not only took a
spotlight during the Clapton
Crossroads Festival last sum-
mer, but also at the presti-
gious Festival International
Jazz de Montreal, and The
New Orleans Jazz Fest. His
signature sound was tapped
for collaborations with many
artists including helming the
revival of John Hiatt's famed
band, The Goners. Landreth
also took a pivotal role on
stage with Gov't Mule for their
live album and DVD, and
toured with Jimmy Buffet.
Landreth has been work-
ing steadily for decades,
amassing a devoted following
among his fans and peers.
Eric Clapton said he is "prob-
ably the most underestimat-
ed musician on the planet
and also probably one of the
most advanced." Indeed,
Landreth's way of playing is
unmistakably his own. His
method combines the bottle-
neck slide and palm and
thumb picking techniques
that produce a sound that is
often said to resemble many
instruments playing at once.
The Lee Boys
"They are; probably the
least known national act
coming this year, but they are
my favorite. They play
straight-on gospel blues and
their style is called sacred
steel," Strauss said.
The All Stars
"The All Stars are a bunch
of people from local and
regional bands. I grew up here
and I like the community to
become more involved. We
put a bunch of them together
It's a different atmosphere for
them. They just get up there
and have a jam," Strauss said.
Greg Poulos, a Sarasota
native and veteran guitarist of
43 years, joins in with the All
Stars. As a member of the
Chicago style blues band,'
Lebo Mash, Greg found him-
self moving to Boulder, Colo.,
in 1972. Then in 1976, he
toured with he late, great
Freddie King for 1-1/2 years.
Poulos has offered his tal-
ents to local bands like Sara-
sota Slim, Rock Bottom, the
Anderson Poulos Band and
the Poulos Ramsey Band. He
then spent five years as die
guitarist for Dan Electro and
The Silvertones and four


years widt Jennifer and The
Venturas.

Reggie Sears
"I open the show every
year with an unknown artist,"
Strauss said. "This year the
guy is Reggie Sears. The guy is
14 years old unbelievable
you would not believe
what is coming out of this
kid's mouth."
Strauss said she doesn't put
children on the show because
they're cute or as a novelty. It's
purely for an unseen talent
they possess. The festival has
been notorious for uncover-
ing talent that hasn't been
recognized yet.
Chase Vickers
Chase Vicker is possibly
the most intriguing musician
to play at the festival. Now 10,
Vickers has been performing
since he was 8, and has been
blind since birth.
He works with instructors
at the Drum Studio in Sara-
sota.
"He is going to open the
blues fest with himself play-
ing the drums and myself
playing the guitar," said Drum
Studio staff member Sandi
Grecco. "We are going to per-
form the national anthem."
The Chase Vickers Band
formed in 2004, by Sandi
Grecco & Chase Vickers, orig-
inally called Chase & Sandi's
Heavy Metal Experiment,
Chase showcased his extraor-
dinary drumming talents at
monthly student Jams @ The
Drum Studio, where he has
been a drum student for two
years.
"That's one of the ways I
communicated with Chase is
by playing the guitar," Grecco
said.

Florida Center opens state's


first fetal alcohol diagnostic


and intervention clinic


THE FLORIDA CENTER
MR CanIw% AM Axo.Y tAUVWti
STAFF REPORT

The Florida Center for
Child and Family Develop-
ment has opened the state's
first and only Fetal Alcohol
Diagnostic and Intervention
Clinic to diagnose people
with alcohol-related disorders,
known as fetal alcohol spec-
trum disorders (FASD). FASD
is an umbrella term describing
the range of ef-fects that can
occur in an individual whose
mother drank alcohol during
pregnancy. Fetal alcohol
syndrome (FAS) is the most
common and severe of the
disorders.
A common misconcep-
tion is that only alcoholic
women have children with
FAS. According to a study
released from the Centers for
Disease Control, the popula-
tion most at risk is women of
child bearing age with a col-
lege degree and earning an
average of $50,000 per year.
Chief Operating Officer
for The Florida Center, Kath-
ryn Shea, said the need for
this clinic is crucial. "FAS is
the leading known cause of
mental retardation in west-
ern civilization. The saddest
part is it is 100 percent pre-
ventable."
Through state funding, the
new clinic will -provide 40
statewide diagnostic evalua-
tions and statewide FASD
training to 200-300 partici-
pants. Twenty-five children
and their families from Sara-.
sota will also receive inter-
'vention services such as
occupational therapy, mental
health care and case man-
agement.
Effects of FASD
* Florida spends more than
$78 million each year to pro-


vide special education and
juvenile justice services to
children ages 5-18 affected by
FAS, an estimated $914,183
per day.
* Sixty percent of individuals
with fetal alcohol-related dis-
orders will have trouble with
the law. The younger the
child is diagnosed or identi-
fied and appropriate inter-
ventions and services are ini-
tiated, the higher the proba-
bility they will live indepen-
dently and function well in
society.
* More than 50 percent of
women of childbearing age
drink alcohol, and only 39
percent know what FAS is.
* Each year in the United
States, 35,000-40,000 babies
are born with a fetal alcohol-
related disorder.
For more information on
the clinic, call 370-8820 or
visit thefloridacenter.org.
The Florida Center supports
healthy development and
strengthening relationships
within families and conmu-
nities.
The truth about
alcohol and pregnancy
There is no known safe
amount of alcohol or safe
time to drink alcohol during
pregnancy.
FASD is an umbrella term
describing the range of ef-
fects that can occur in an
individual whose mother
drank alcohol during preg-
nancy. These effects may
include physical, mental,
behavioral, and/or learning
disabilities with possible life-
long implications. FASD is
not a clinical diagnosis; it
refers to conditions such as:
Fetal Alcohol Syndrome"
(FAS), most common Alco-
hol-related neurodevelop-
mental disorder (ARND)
-Alcohol-related birth defects
(ARBD).
If it is known that the birth
mother of a child consumed
alcohol during pregnancy,
trained professionals will

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


By Vicki Connell. ?
M.A., CCC-A I
Certified Audiologist
Q. My husband is only 52
years old and thinks he is
too young to possibly have
any hearing loss. Yet he is
always asking me "what
did they say" and our TV is
so loud our neighbors have
mentioned it. He says even
if he did need a hearing aid.
there is no way he would
wear one. What should I
do?
A. Tell him he's not alone.
The results of a recent study
indicate that hearing loss is
more widespread among
baby boomers than
previously estimated. The
study looked at those persons
ages 40-59 years and found
that half of those surveyed
had some degree of hearing
loss ranging from mild to
moderate levels. The study
indicates that boomers are
losing their hearing at a more
rapid pace than past
generations because they
have encountered more noise
pollution than any other
generation. Half of those
persons with hearing losses
said they were most affected
by their problem at home and
44% said their hearing loss
causes problems in social
situations. Despite these
findings only one in three
had had a recent hearing test
and most were doing very
little to find appropriate
solutions to their problem.
Tell your husband he needs
to have a hearing assessment
by a certified Audiologist in
order to determine his
hearing ability and to discuss
possible solutions which may
or may not involve the use of
hearing aids. If it is found
that hearing aids could be of
help, tell him many of the
latest instruments are
virtually invisible and are
very comfortable to wear.
However, these very tiny
hearing aids can only be used
successfully by those persons
with mild hearing losses. The
longer his problem continues
undiagnosed, the more his
hearing ability could
deteriorate. Call the
Audiologist at' Woodmere
Hearing & Balance Centers
at 492-4327 to schedule an
audiologic assessment today.

Winter Waves will wow you

Global warming effects


STAFF REPORT


Florida's fortunate gar-
deners are entering their
"other" gardening season -
and this year, there's an excit-
ing new flower choice to
brighten fall and winter land-
scapes.
Easy Wave spreading
petunias are bred specifically
to flower under "short days"
of sunlight making them
perfect for the fall and winter
days in Florida.
A sister series to the origi-
nal, well-known Waves
petunias, the Easy Wave
series boasts the same per-
petual petal power and vig-
orous spreading plant habit
that made Wave famous.
When planted in the fall,
these blooming beauties
will flourish through
Florida's mild winters and
right into spring.
"University trials have
proven time and time again
the outstanding performance
of Easy Wave petunias in
Florida's fall and winter con-


editions says Terry Howe,
Southeast Representative
and Florida Station Manager
for PanAmerican Seed, the
company that introduced
Easy Wave and Wave petu-
nias.
"They really are sure-fire
plants for season-long color
under our shorter winter
days they'll even tolerate
a light frost," says Howe.
Each Easy Wave petunia
variety grows 6-12 inches tall
and spreads up to 3 feet -
easily twice the spread of
standard petunias to offer
loads of color in every sun-
ny setting.
Try them in garden beds,
hanging baskets, window
boxes and large containers -
you'll be thrilled with the
amazing versatility, beautiful-
color and superior garden
performance that have made
these petunias famous.
Easy Wave is the perfect
companion to the ever-
popular impatiens. While
impatiens mound and fill
in well, Easy Wave spreads


rapidly providing a blanket
of colorful ground cover.
Combining the two is easy
to do and provides show-
stopping results!
For best results, plant Easy
Wave petunias in full, all-day
sun, spacing them 12-18
inches apart in garden beds
or using 1 to 3 plants per 10-
inch or larger containers.
Keep the soil moist and don't
let it dry out between water-
ings especially in contain-
ers. Easy Wave petunias are
constantly growing, hungry
plants, so apply a liquid, all-
purpose fertilizer every 10 to
14 days according to package
directions.
This fall, look for Easy
Wave petunias in white, pink,
red and blue at your local
home center. These bloom-
ing beauties will provide you
with bountiful color all sea-
son long. Just water and feed
- then relax, sit back and
watch them grow!

retailer in your area, visit

Scientists are telling us
that global warming is affect-
ing us in many different ways.
Of course, all of us here have
heard how the warming of
the Atlantic and the gulf
have contributed to an in-
creased frequency of hurri-
canes. And now we've gone
through the entire alphabet
just naming this year's tropi-
cal storms. Scientists point to
a measured buildup of heat
in the world's oceans. Those
same scientists also tell us this
will lead to an increased
intensity and increased rain-
fall in hurricanes. We certainly
have seen proof of that lately.
In the Arctic, the size of the
polar cap is shrinking dramat-
ically. It was at its all-time
smallest size this past sum-
mer. The eight nations that
border the polar cap are busi-
ly trying to claim additional
territory. The polar bear,
unfortunately, is losing terri-
tory (habitat). Though it's a
long way from us, all that
melting ice has brought up
the water level in our oceans.
Florida coastal trees are al-
ready being destroyed by sea
water on both coasts. And


then there's the threat of
beach erosion, too. Katrina
showed us that result to the
maximum. Will our. under-
ground water supplies be
affected next?
Right here in Florida, still
other scientists are noting
that widespread. warming
has had an effect on our but-
terfly population. Monarch,
and many additional species,
are now breeding year-round
in Florida. We're also told that
species that used to live only
in South Florida have ex-
panded their habitats some
30 miles north each year for
the past 15 years.
Other animal species, in-
cluding the grizzly bear, are
also being affected by global
warming and a resultant loss
of habitat.
We don't know for sure
that global warming is caus-
ed entirely by humans -
the fuels we burn, the gasses


our vehicles and factories
emit, heat-trapping pollution,
etc. It could be just a
natural cycle. But global
warming is real. It's happen-
ing now. And it seems to me
that we should do all we
can to lessen it, to preserve
"habitat" for ourselves and
all the' other species with
whom we share this planet.
The effects of global
warming are evident. They'll
be even more evident when
our grandchildren reach
adulthood. Join me in the
Virtual March to Stop Global
Warming at stopglobal-
warming.org. This is an easy
way to help ensure that we
- and our children and
grandchildren have a safer
future.

Allan is an award-winning

'Prisoners of Love'


It seems as how a week's
long activities at Venice High
culminated in a formal dance
on a recent Saturday night.
My memory of 75 years ago is
probably a little foggy, but I do
not believe my high school
celebrated homecoming, at
least not in the fashion that
some high schools do. At that
time I thought homecoming
was strictly a college tradition.
I guess that is a "trickle down"
theory. I dunno!
Most people my age are
flabbergasted at the formal
"homecoming" and spring
proms and the importance of
them to high school students.
Often the girls shop for the
most beautiful dress they can
find. They have their hair and
nails done, and sometimes

even a pedicure. A dinner
before a dance seems to be
another expensive tradition
and some have been known
to hire a limo. Of course, it is a
wonderful, exciting time for
them.
It was only a few years ago
that my granddaughter, Julia,
went to her high school prom.
"Why," I asked, "Why would
you get your toenails painted
if you are probably getting
new closed-toe shoes to
match your new dress?" "Oh,"
she said. "That's easy, the first
thing you do when you get to
a dance is kick your shoes
off!" I can relate to that. I can
remember taking them off
toward the end of the dance.
Does it seem to you that
kids are doing the really "big"
things at younger and young-
er ages? Do you think that
maybe they feel they are
growing' too old very soon?
Do you think that maybe they
feel they have to experience
the best of life now? That high
school and maybe college are
the end of the good times?
Teens are not likely to read
this, so I won't disillusion
them. But I had 100 times
more fun as an adult than I
did as a confused teenager. I

what age they considered one
stopped "really living." One
said at 21, or maybe 40 or 50.
The two others said at 40 or
50. One friend, on reading
this, said, "You know, when
you are 30, 40 doesn't seem so
bad. When you are 40, 50
doesn't seem so bad. So I
guess it is all relative. I wish I
could tell them about falling
in love the second time at age
80, and having a simply glori-
ous time. I wonder if they
could comprehend that? I
dunno!
I asked one mother how
"peer pressures" affected her
daughter. "Not at all," she
said. Her last daughter was
going to a formal dance with
several other girls. They each
had several long dresses and
either traded them or rotated
them. They were going to
have a good time, regardless.
I asked several senior citi-
zens and younger adults if
they would like to relive their
teenage years. "No way," they
all said.

Cow thieves and outlaws party hearty





while others clean up in Bartlesville


Part I of a two-part series.

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


If you are willing to take
one of the first planes out of
Sarasota at dawn, you can be
at Tulsa Airport before noon
and eating lunch at Woolaroc
by noon.
Confused? Me too until
my recent eye-opening trip to
Bartlesville, Okla., which is
less than an hour from Tulsa.
Expecting nothing but
prairie land and oil wells, I
found Frank Lloyd Wright's
only completed skyscraper
(Price Tower) plus Woolaroc
Ranch, Museum and Wildlife
Preserve, historic homes,
other museums, a candle fac-
tory and Red Dirt Soap.
Named for the color of the
dirt beneath the soapmaker's
feet, Red Dirt Soap's factory
store and neighboring
Keepsake Candles are popu-
lar tourist draws to the area.
Just 40 minutes after
deplaning I was riding over-
land in the Osage Hills of
northeast Oklahoma. For
some 2 miles we drove past
herds of buffalo, deer, elk,
longhorn sheep, llamas,
ostriches, prairie dogs and
more. Once or twice we
stopped for photos. Another
time we stopped because a
buffalo was ambling along
the road ahead of us. Taking
no notice of our van, it con-
tinue its slow and steady pace
until we could finally get
around it.
Our welcoming committee
was Richard T. "Dick" Miller,
Woolaroc's general manager
and the secretary/treasurer of
the Frank Phillips
Foundation, which controls
Woolaroc. Miller guided us
past the Bunkhouse gallery to
the lodge where we dined on
barbecue buffalo sandwiches


and the most amazing fruit
and pasta salad before tour-
ing Woolaroc Lodge, where I
picked up some circus history
that I had never heard in
Sarasota.
"In the 1940s, John Ring-
ling North bet and lost the cir-
cus to Frank Phillips," Miller
said. "They were playing
poker. If that table could only
talk."
Ringling won it back, but
there was another connection
between- the two families.
John Ringling North's uncle
John Ringling, and Frank
,Phillips, the owner of Wool-
aroc, both gained their wealth
about the same time, both
built their mansions at the
same time and both moved in
the upper levels of society in
which private rail cars, home
elevators and other luxuries
were the norm.
Ringling made his money
from real estate, the circus
and investments that includ-
ed the oil spewing forth from
Texas and Oklahoma wells in
the mid 1920s. Phillips was a
barber with a three-chair
shop in downtown Bartles-
ville and an entrepreneurial
spirit.
"He was from southwest
Iowa and he didn't want to be
a farmer," Miller said. "He
opened a three-chair barber
shop in back of a bank." That
shop is still there.
"He was a bald guy who
sold hair tonic that was just
water and perfume. Then he
started wild catting."
Just 22 when he opened his
shop, he spied the banker's
daughter, Jane Gibson. The
one thing the banker and the
suitor could agree on was that
they both wanted more for
Jane than a barber's salary
would provide.
'Phillips sold bonds for the
Chicago Coliseum, some-
thing the senior Gibson had


The Steinway piano at Woolaroc Lodge, the country home of
oil baron Frank Phillips, is covered in bark in a patented
process also used to make picture frames.

considered unsalable. Earn-
ing $75,000 in commissions
he was on his way to becom-
ing a banker. He even loaned
money to outlaws, boasting
that they always paid him
back and on time. As a wild-
catter Phillips made $1.5 mil-
lion from his first well and
then hit 81 in a row, founding
the Phillips Petroleum Com-
pany in 1917. Altogether, he
owned 17,000 acres.
The 3,600-acre parcel of
land on which Woolaroc
wildlife preserve was built is
land that had yielded nothing
but dry wells. What it did yield


was stories for its visitors,
many of whom were seeing
the wild west for the very first
time as a guest of Phillips.
That he imported exotic ani-
mals like giraffes and llamas
made for even better stores.
Like the Ringlings and other
millionaires of that era,
Phillips led sex 'ral lives, living
in several places. He had his
formal and main family
house in Bartlesville, his
ranchhouse (Woolaroc Lodge)
at Woolaroc and his suite of
rooms atop the Ambassador
Hotel in New York City where
he picked up an appreciation


Oil baron Frank Phillips played poker with fellow millionaires
like Sarasota's John Ringling at this table in his Woolaroc lodge
home. On one occasion, it is said that Ringling bet and lost his
circus to Phillips, but only for a hand or two.

for culture. A businessman
first and foremost, he con-
ducted business from each of
these places.
"Sometimes dinner would
be ready in town and they
would decide to go to the
country for the night," Miller
said. "The servants would be
called and by the time they
had driven out there, dinner
would have been prepared."
Woolaroc became a legend
on its own. Invitations were
coveted by his fellow million-
aires, but they were not the
only guests. Also regularly
entertained there were oil-
men, churchmen, bankers,
politicians, cowboys, Osage
Indians, cow thieves and out-
laws. No, that is not a typo.
"He was as much a friend
of Cardinal Spellman as he
was with the local bank rob-
ber," Miller said. "Robbers
went to Bartlesville to rob
banks and then brought the
money back to put in his bank
here."
In the days when Phillips
threw the parties that eventu-
ally turned into this era's
annual fund-raising Cow
Thieves and Outlaws Re-
union, the outlaws were given
amnesty during the event.
Before meeting the local
cow thieves and outlaws we
had much more to see.

There is a photo wall of

One of Phillips biggest
honors occurred when he was

honorary chief of the Osage

the chief presented Phillips
with a horse, saddle, bridle

'The Boys of Winter' is story of U.S.A. victory over the Russian hockey team


BYWAYNECOFFEY
GUEST WRITER
What would you say is the
most defining, most exciting
moment ever in sports histo-
ry? Some fans would say the
best game ever was the last
time their team got to the
Super Bowl. Others might
point to an historic moment:
a Sosa smash, a Venus back-
hand, a Tiger hole-in-one, or
watching The Dream Team
play. -
Almost 25 years ago, most
Americans would have said
the best moment in sports
was the U.SA victory over the
Russian hockey team in the
Olympics. In "The Boys of
Winter" by Wayne Coffey (c.
2005, Crown Publishers),
you'll read the fascinating


story of a team of amateur
athletes and the coach who
provoked them to win.
Back in 1980, everybody
who knew hockey knew that
the Soviets were a nearly
unbeatable team. In the years
following World War 1, the
Russians began to focus on
the sport, gathering major
wins with their "Soviet Style"
of play, which was developed
specifically to be superior to
any challengers. .
Team after tean was
trounced by the Soviets, so
when the Olympics were
scheduled in Lake Placid,
N.Y, Coach Herb Brooks
knew he would face a forni-
dable opponent.
Brooks was a Minnesota
boy who grew up wanting to
play hockey in the Olympics.


He nearly made the 1960
.team, but, was dropped al-
nmost at the last minute, and
that disappointment seemed
to drive him for the rest of his
life. People who knew him
got used to his late-night
calls, his rants, and his single-
minded obsession when it
came to mapping out plays.
Brooks could be cruel and he
never apologized for any-
thing, but he wasn't out to
make friends. He was out to
win.
One by one,. Brooks began
to assemble a team of hockey
players that he knew could
beat the Soviets. They came
from Minnesota, Massachu-


setts, any place where boys
played pick-up games after
school, any place where
hockey was a religion. Brooks
created a team out of a bunch
of amateur players, turning
20 boys into the youngest
Olympic hockey team the
United States had ever had.
Eighteen of the team mem-
bers were in college; two of
them; were still teenagers.
Brooks bullied them, bad-
gered them, brow-beat them
into one of the biggest wins in
Olympics history.
You know the outcome of
this book: Team USA takes
the gold.
You might not, however,


know about the boys who
skated and the coach who
pushed them to win. Author
Wayne Coffey has interviews
with many of the former play-
ers, and he gently weaves
their life stories in with a
minute-by-minute recount-
ing of the exciting US/USSR
game.
I especially liked the way
Coffey gives you a follow-up
on the lives of the players;
what they're doing now and
how they've fared since that
monumental win.
Even if you don't "know"
hockey, this book will make
sense to you, and I think
you'll, like it. If you're a hockey


fan, however. "The Boys of
Winer" is a dream to read.

Billy's story in his own words


Billy the Beagle had a very hard year, but he's now healthy and
happy with his new family.


BY WILLIAM BILLY-THE-BEAGLE-BERTEN

Sarasota County Sheriff
Animal Service Section sent
Virgil MacIntyre, Black Kitty
and me, William Billy-the-
Beagle Berten, cards remind-
ing us to get our 2006 rabies
shots. Out came my thick
.packet of files. Yep, a whole
year and what a year it has
been for me.
Mom sometimes looks
deep into my eyes and asks
me what my life was like
before. I run and jump onto
my cushion on the couch and
make a nest of my quilt and,
sit down for a chat. She sits in
front of me and listens. I
know I al\\ays loved'people.
Beagles bay, you know; I do
when kids on the next road
jump on their trampoline and
scream. I whine and try to get
someone to notice when
babies on TV cry. I always
loved to go for rides. I get very
excited when I see a certain
kind of pickup truck parked
anywhere. Those are the only
hints I can give her.
I remember only just
before Hurricane Charley. My
person left me and never
came home. Eventually, I
gnawed off my collar and
went around the neighbor-


hood to look for him. Some
lady was worried because I
had been hanging around her
garage for a couple of weeks.
She called Win Sell, the
Animal Control officer, who
brought me to the Suncoast
Humane Society. I wouldn't
eat and I just hung around in
my run and looked sad. My
person never came to look for
me. Thinking that maybe all I
needed was a home, I was
taken to an adoption event.
Nobody even looked at me.
Claire, from Suncoast,
brought me to this house
because the family is certified
as foster parents for sick or
baby animals. They were ter-
ribly worried about a horrible
smell coming from my
mouth.
I would nibble on pieces of
boiled ham and drink a little
water and that was all.
We went to see Dr. Walsh,
who began by giving me
strong antibiotics and check-
ing for fleas and ticks. He
adopted me, which makes it
official that I am loved and
wanted. They all worked on
me: Billy come, Billy sit, Billy
down-stay commands. Some-
day I will surprise them and
figure out how to do the
down-stay part. It's the least I


can do for intestinal worms. I
had bad heartworm so we
had to get all this done before
my treatment could begin.
When I still wouldn't eat, he
had me come back to X-ray
my mouth. Nothing. Dr.
Walsh is pretty stubborn
when he knows something is
wrong, so he dug around
under my gums and came up
with a portion of my old plas-
tic collar wedged between my
jaw and my teeth. That did it.
My awful smell was gone and
I could eat. Yes! I was sick
from the heartworm treat-
ment though so I had to visit
Drs. Walsh and Breitwieser a
lot of times.
When my tests finally
showed I was free of heart-
worm, when my gums had
healed and my blood work
said nothing else was wrong, I
had my dental work done, an:
extraction and my teeth
cleaned and I was ready for
adoption.
You know, I am very sweet
and well trained but nobody
seemed to want a 5-year-old
tricolored-blue beagle. I'm
now being taught how to
behave as a Pet Partner. I have
gone on Humane Education
visits to schools, libraries and
fairs. I like doing this because
I get to be with kids. People
stopped to stroke my ears and
to tell me about a beagle they
once had and how much lover
he or she gave them, but
nobody wanted to adopt me.
Soon I will be eligible to go
for a very special examination
and test, to become Delta cer-
tified. I can then become,
with my person, a Delta pet
partner. That's how I'll get to
keep visiting kids. I must
learn "down-stay," a com-
mand Delta is pretty strict
about.
I can't seem to do this. If
you think Dr. Walsh is stub-
born, boy oh boy, you haven't
met my people! They finally
became my forever family.
My person adopted me!!

Adopt-a-pet


TEN THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE PURCHASING OR
MAKING A HALLOWEEN COSTUME FOR YOUR DOG
* Put the costume on your dog for a few minutes a day and build
up the amount of time your doc tolerates it.
* Ensure that costumes do not limit your dog's field of vision.
* Choose costumes that are appropriate for your dog's size, build
and temperament. For example, a pug may need a costume that's
small, but with a roomy chest and shoulder area. A bulldog needs
a costume large enough for the neck, but not so large that the
dog trips on it. Some breeds can be "thin-skinned" and ticklish,
and may never get used to costumes.
* If your dog has never worn clothing or a costume, start with a
hat or bandana.
* Never leave a dog unattended in a costume
* Avoid costumes with small pieces such as beads that can be
swallowed.
* Make sure the costume fabric will not overheat your dog.
* Ensure that elastic bands do ndt become uncomfortable. Even a
mildly snug elastic band may be uncomfortable after extended
wear (more than 30 minutes).
* Monitor your dog frequently for signs of physical discomfort,
such as moving or walking in a stiff or unusual posture, reluctance
to walk, or pawing/biting.
* Watch for behavioral signs that your dog is becoming stressed by
the costume, such as increased agitation or defensiveness.

event. The tanned skin is
nearly covered in hand-
tooled letters and designs.
The museum contains still
more, including the largest
collection of bronzes by Joe
Beeler. Considered by many
to be a modern-day Charlie
Russell, Beeler is a real-life
cowboy, researcher and one
of just a few living artists who
have work atWoolaroc. Miller
said the museum buys one of
each new edition created by
Beeler. And while it almost
had the largest Russell collec-
tion in the country, it does
have six of his paintings and
14 Russell bronzes. Also in the
collection are some Frederick
Remingtons paintings and
bronzes. Nearly everything in.
the museum fits with the
western theme of Woolaroc,
but this museum's herd also
contains some very interest-
ing "strays," seven authentic
shrunken heads from Africa
and a bronze casting of the
original model maquettee)
from which the Lincoln
Memorial in Washington,
D.C., was made. The fingers
are poised in the position of
the sign language letters A
and L for Abraham Lincoln,
Miller said.
And all around the muse-
um and other buildings are
the woods, lakes and rocks
that gave this magnificent
nature preserve its name -
Woolaroc. As majestic as it
was when the Osage hunted
in its hills, Woolaroc today
remains a place where the
buffalo roam, where the
sound of the whippoorwill
can be hard and where the
moon still reflects the time-
lessness of this place.
Legends are made
of the Wright stuff
Bartlesville is known as the
Land of Legends.
Woolaroc and Phillips are
legends. So is Frank Lloyd
Wright, the architect.
Although he never lived in
Bartlesville, the city had two
links to the legendary archi-
tect Lloyd Wright's only


completed skyscraper and
the Bartlesville Community
Center, which, like Sarasota's
Van Wezel Performing Arts
Hall was designed by Wesley
Peters, chief architect of Talie-
sin, the Frank Lloyd Wright
Foundation. Its smooth
curves and rounded lines
reminded me of Sarasota's
largest purple building, the
minute I saw it. The interior
seats are nearly the same
color in the two buildings and
the, basic layout, including
the lack of a central aisle is
nearly identical. Even the
lobby and community center
or great hall are in the same
places in the twin-like struc-
tures.
The other building, the
one designed by Lloyd Wright
himself, is one that no other
city has for it is the only Lloyd
Wright-designed skyscraper
that was ever built.
Designed to be built in the
Bowery area of New York City
late in the 1920s but never
funded, the design lan-
guished for years until Wright
finally was united with a com-
pany that would fund the
unique and highly decorative
structure.
Heavily embellished with
copper trim, decorative lights
and louver windows, the rich-
ly decorated building fea-
tured cantilevered floors
attached to a central core
made of four towers.
Since its completion in
1956 for the H.C. Price Com-
pany, the structure has been
named one of the most im-
portant buildings of the 20th
century and most recently
has been transformed into
the Price Tower Arts Center,
home to a permanent art col-
lection, the 21-room Inn at
Price Tower and Copper
Restaurant + Bar.
For two nights, I was a
guest at the inn, actually
sleeping in a room designed
by a man I have always re-
ferred to as one of the greatest
sculptors of all time but not
necessarily a great architect.
My favorite fabrics and wall-
papers and furnishings do
not work in a Lloyd Wright


home. Since I am too stub-
born ever to change the way I
live, I am content to visit
Falling Water. But please do
not make me live there. I like
looking at Lloyd Wright-
designed buildings but I have
yet to see one that I could live
in and, in my opinion, a good
architect designs for people. A
sculptor designs for other rea-
sons. Hence my opinion that
Lloyd Wright was a fine sculp-
tor.
Wright rethought the con-
cept of the tall building in
designing Price Tower, estab-
lishing a mixed-use concept
that would combine resi-
dences, retail, parking and
business offices for the open
landscape of Oklahoma.
"Based on the structure of
a tree, the tower has a central
core, similar to a tree trunk,
that contains circulation and
services from which can-
tilevered reinforced concrete
floors extend like branches,"
Price Tower Art Center Cur-
ator of Collections and Public
Programs Monica Ramirez-
Montagut said. "The concrete
walls, ceilings and floors' sur-
faces flow from one another
creating a sense of unity and
achieving a sense of unity and
achieving Wright's ideal of
plasticity, structural continu-
ity. The 'tap-root' system
allows for an unconventional
base, an articulated top and
innovations on the facade: a
free-standing skin with verti-
cal green copper louvers for
the residences and horizontal
ones for office spaces."
LloydWright used a modu-
lar scheme, based on dia-
mond shapes that were creat-
ed from his basic triangle
form, resulting in rooms
based on variations of those
figures. The bathroom and
shower in my inn room were
both basic triangles. The ele-
vators were trapezoid's just
large enough to carry two
passengers and small "wheel-
ie" luggage.
Two nights in a hotel room
I could manage, especially
since all the rooms had been
newly decorated in keeping
with the copper theme of the


hotel's design, and without
sacrificing any creature com-
forts. My room, one of four on
the seventh floor, was perfect
trapezoid with a triangle-
shaped bathroom. The car-
pet, bed covers and draperies
were shades of green and
both carpet and decorator
pillows on the beds had cop-
per striping as an accent to
coordinate with the copper
pipe accents used on furni-
ture and as towel and toilet
paper rods in the bathroom.
More pipe was used as a dec-
orative device on the closet
door panels and still more
copper appeared as curtain
rings for the draperies. Trie
tilt-out windows were original
to the building, separated by
copper trim that had turned
veridien green over the past
50 years. With its jagged trim
now sporting greenish hues, it
was like a majestic tree rising
from the prairie. To be able to
see Wright's design in the


open as it is breathtaking.
Within one day I had trav-
eled from the sunny beaches
of Florida to the gently rolling
hills and prairieland of North-
eastern Oklahoma, finding a
place where the buffalo roam,
wealthy oil barons and the
tallest Frank Lloyd Wright-
designed building ever built.
After dinner at Dink's Pit
Bar-B-Que, I spent my first
night in a Lloyd-Wright-de-
signed building, sleeping like
a baby as soon as my head hit
the pillow.

Take a hike


There's a new look to the
trails at Oscar Scherer State
Park. With colored arrows
pointing the way, you don't
have to worry about where
you're going, but just take in
the beautiful scenery. Signs
with detailed maps to guide
hikers have been placed at
the trailheads and at strategic
places in the park. A new
"All Trails Map," in full-color
includes explanations of
each trail. It's available at
the ranger station.
Oscar Scherer is not just
about hiking. With 15 miles of
trails of various difficulties
and lengths ranging from a.
half mile to 5 miles, you have
an array of choices at the
park. Take a stroll down
the shady path of the South
Creek Nature Trail, walk the
dog along Lester Finley Trail.
hike the full 5 miles of the
Yellow Trail, or bike the hard-
packed surface of the Green
Trail. '
Over the years at Oscarl
Scherer, maintenance and
upgrades are needed to keep
Park trails in optimum condi-
tion. Recognizing this, mem-
ers of the Friends of Oscar
cherer Park Inc., the citizens
Support organization for the
.park, developed a plan to
transform and update the
i:trail system using volunteer
'labor coupled with the quan-
;tim advances in mapping,


graphic design and signage.
Project planners enjoyed
the enthusiastic endorse-
ment and help from park
personnel and a host of:
volunteers. Each aspect was
submitted for approval to.
Oscar Scherer's park man-
ager. In many cases, this
necessitated clearance by
biologists, and education
specialists at the district level
before work could get under
way. Regular users of the
park also provided invalu-
able guidance and sugges-
tions. The project, which was
begun in February 2005 and
will be completed by April
2006, minimized disruption
and confusion for those hik-
ing the trails.
At the ranger station en-,
trance to the park, visitors
are greeted by a large sign
with a map of all the trails to
help orient them. TWo more
of these signs are conveni-
ently located at the South
Creek Picnic Area and at the
Nature Center, to provide
guidance for people plan-
ning an outing.
Each of Oscar Scherer's
six: trails has something
unique to offer. The Lester
Finley is popular with first-
time visitors; dog walkers
and "regulars" in the park. A
half-mile leisurely walk fol-
lows scenic South Creek.
The 5-mile-long Yellow Trail
passes through two of the
original ecosystems in this
part of Florida the pine


flatwoods and the scrubby
flatwoods (the scrub). This
is one of the longer trails
where the new individual
trail map is especially nice
to have. Each trail has its
own map and offers detailed
:descriptions of the ecosys-
tems and wildlife along that
particular trail.
.Smoothing the way for
hikers has always been atop
consideration of this project.
A work group of volunteers
spent weeks placing 4-inch
by 4-inch posts in the ground
and attaching colored arrows
matching each trail color
with weather and tamper-
proof screws.
Some of the trails were
redesigned to give hikers
choices of shorter and longer
routes. For example, on the
Yellow Trail you now can
choose to hike 2, 3-1/2, or
the full 5 miles with each
route clearly marked. The
South Creek Nature Trail
was extended 100 yards to
make it more convenient
for users to locate the trail-
head.
Clearly the need to refur-
bish the trails at Oscar Sherer
was there. The end result is
a state-of-the-art trail system
that is on the leading edge
of available technology. Now
hiking the trails at Oscar
Scherer, you pass width ease
through a variety of beautiful

those who hurry by. Pause
often to take it all in.

Egomaniacs


By CATHY KEEN
UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA
GAINESVILLE People
who have a high opinion of
themselves are unlikely to
have that view shared by their
co-workers, a new University
of Florida study on narcissism
in the workplace finds.
SConceited, vain and self-
absorbed employees tend to
have an inflated opinion
about their job skills but actu-
ally are subpar performers in
the view of their supervisors
and colleagues, said Timothy
Judge, a UF management pro-
fessor, whose research is
scheduled to be published in
the January issue of the Jour-
nal of Applied Psychology.
"It's one thing to think
you're better than other peo-
ple when in fact you're no bet-
ter; quite another to think
you're better when you're
actually worse," Judge said.
"Not recognizing your own
limitations in the workplace is
going to keep you from trying


to develop skills that would
help you improve and make
your organization more effec-
tive."
Although clinical studies
show that people who exces-
sively admire themselves have
difficulty forming close inti-
mate relationships, little
research has been done on the
effects of narcissism in the
workplace, Judge said.
Judge, along with UF man-
agement professor Jeffery
LePine and graduate student
Bruce Rich, examined how
people who.scored high on a
psychological measure for
narcissism rated their leader-
ship and job skills compared
with reviews by bosses and
co-workers of how well they
did. The 2004 surveys were
completed by 139 University
of Florida graduate students
in business administration
who held jobs outside the
classroom, as well as by 143
lifeguards between the ages of
18 and 48 in the mid-Atlantic
region of the United States.

image, which may just be a
stereotype."
Taken to an extreme, the
lack of a realistic appraisal of
oneself can have dangerous
consequences, Judge said.
"A lot of tragedies in the
world have been committed
by people with grandiose
views of their capabilities," he
said. "Most delusional rulers
and dictators tend to think
they're invulnerable and have
an inflated view of who they
are."
Michigan State University
psychology professor Ann
Marie Ryan said Judge's
research is important to orga-
nizations because it suggests
that "simply providing people
with information on how oth-
ers view them may not lead to
any appreciable change in
self-perceptions."
