Scrub-jay lots off the auction block


BY GEORGE MCGINH
STAFF WRITER


Sarasota County is removing all
abandoned, lots that fall within
known scrub jay habitat from an-
upcoming auction.
Terry Gilbert, a manager of poli-
cies and projects for Sarasota
County, said 202-of the 2,130 lots fall
into this category, and they will not
be available to be bid on until the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service com-
pletes a new survey that he said
started this month.
However, residents who attended
the meeting held by Fisher Auction
Company Tuesday night were told
something else. Many specifically
asked whether the survey would
affect the sale of the lots.
Larry Arnold, project manager for
Sarasota County, told the audience
that "there is no new survey being
done." :
Spencer Simon, supervisory
wildlife biologist for the wildlife ser-
vice. confirmed a scrub-jay survey is
already under way in North Port.
The county's removal of scrub-jay
lots from the auction came after an
alleged scam was reported in a press
release by Sarasota County.
The county said several landown-
ers have been contacted by develop-



EDITION


ers telling them their land is "worth-
less" and offering to buy the land at
far below its current market value.
The release also stated the county,
and North Port had received calls
from several landowners about the
scam. -
However, North Port Police Capt.
Robert Estrada said the police
dep~rtrnent has not received any
complaints or information on the
alleged scams.
"We have had nobody come for-
ward to us," Estrada said.
The Sarasota County Sheriff's
office also has not received any
complaints, and no investigation
exists, according to Lt. Chuck
Leslatato.
City Manager Steven Crowell said
Thursday night he had heard noth-
ing from his staff about any calls
received, or even if there was a scam.
Crowell sent an e-mail to all his
managers to find out about the
scam reported by the county.
City Planner Sam Jlones replied to
Crowell that between the building
and planning departments, "Staff
has received five to 10 calls from
property owners over the past two
weeks."
Tones said he has no names, as
the callers wanted to remain anony-
mous. Jones said that when staff first


heard of the calls, he sent an e-mail
to Assistant City Manager Henry
Jenkins to inform him and to initiate
any criminal investigation, if appro-
priate.
Wednesday, Jenkins said he did
not know about the cplls or a possi-
ble scam. On Thursday, Jenkins said
he was aware of the calls.
But city staff never went to the
police when the calls started. Chief
William Colligan responded to an e-
mail from Crowell Thursday saying
the department has no reports of
any scams nor is it investigating any
complaints.
Looking for answers
Larry Allen, director of corrununi-
cations for Sarasota County, could
not explain how the release was
issued without any basis for it, and
will be looking into it.
However, Gilbert said the release
was issued after an e-mail, written
by North Port Grants Manager
Michele Norton to North Port As-
sistant City Planner Brett Har-
rington, stated the county's scrub-
jay map is creating a "tremendous
amount" of phone calls.
Norton told Harrington that she
received a call Friday from a woman

County to explore alternatives

for funding sheriff's department

Several commissioners believe a special tax unit should pay
for Law enforcement. County fiscal officials will report on
alternatives before the next budget cycle.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Venice City Council members
began their search for a new police
chief Wednesday by emphasizing
the city manager has complete con-
trol over whether the chief keeps his
job.
The fact the city charter says oth-
erwise is just a technicality.
Council members are convening
a Charter Review Committee in
hopes a March election issue will
make Venice's police and fire chiefs,
as well as the finance director, all
answer to the city manager instead
of council. As of now, both chiefs are
treated like charter officers and only
city council can hire, fire or disci-
pline them.
Even if the issue fails, council
member John Simmonds wants the
replacement for VPD Chief Jim
Hanks who will retire this spring
- to know City Manager Marty
Black's recommendation decides his
vote.
"The day the city manager wants
to fire a chief, that's the day I'll fire
him," Simmonds said during the
public meeting Wednesday."' .
Bob Slavin of Slavin Management
Consultants was hired for $20,000 to
find a new police chief. He spoke
with council members for about an
hour to find out what they're looking
for in aVenice police chief.
Slain expects to present his top
three candidates to Mayor Dean
Calamaras and the city manager for
interviews by mid-January.
Dealing with problems
Crime is not the problem in
Venice. council told Slavin. The real
problem is bringing police manage-
ment into the 21st century as the
city continues to grow with full-time
residents and as a tourist destina-
tion.
Many of the council members
referred to the recent Matrix Report,
which was highly critical of police
management. Two of the 23 prob-
lem areas were how management is
not keeping accurate track of police
officer's time and giving them direc-
Lions on what to do when not
responding to emergency calls.
About 70 percent of a Venice
police officer's shift is spent waiting

"We're right at the cusp
where old management is
so used to doing it the
Mayberry way, they may be
reluctant to change."
Council member
:Rick Tacy


on a call, but police management
does not keep track of that.
Council member Rick Tacy said
the new chief has to be able to break
old habits among the veteran police
staff and retain new officers. Tacy
linked his comments to the way
many people refer to Venice as
Maybemrry on the Gulf Coast, and the
police chief as Andy Griffith.
"We're right at the cusp where old
management is so used to doing it
the Mayberry way, they may be
reluctant to change," Tacy said.
Council also wanted police offi-
cers to have a visible presence out-
side of their patrol cars. The new
chief needs to find a way to create
community patrols that have offi-
cers on foot and on bicycles.
Better traffic enforcement also
was a common theme among coun-
cil members. Several shared person-
al traffic stories that involved speed-
ers people ignoring traffic signals, or
backed-up traffic being ignored by a
patrol officer.
Once again, they pointed to how
this is a management issue for the
new chief. Council member Bill
Willson said they don't want police
to create speed traps and try to meet
ticket quotas, but he doesn't want
them to ignore violators, either.
"I don't want us to get known as
the unfriendly city." Willson said.
"We just don't want to let it all slide
by, either."
Job security
Each of the council members also
emphasized how the new chief must
realize the city manager holds the
employment strings. Council hopes
to have city charter revisions up for a
March vote by citizens.
If the measure fails, they'll still

If Sarasota County changes its
budget process and establishes a
special taxing district to pay for the
sheriff's department, it will join a
handful of other Florida communi-
ties that have created a separate line
item on the annual tax bills mailed
to property owners.
On Tuesday, the county commis-
sion agreed to have fiscal officials
report on the ordinance changes
necessary to establish a Municipal
Services Taxing Unit as the sheriff's
revenue source.
"We've received a memorandum
from our county attorney that says
'we could set up an MSTU," commis-


sioner Nora Patterson said. "I would
support doing it, but I don't know
how the rest of this board feels.
Broward County is one of 'nine
counties that has one."
Commissioner Shannon Staub
suggested that a committee of resi-
dents with business expertise be
appointed to research the budgetary
issue.
"We did this when we considered
privatizing the jail and decided not
to," she said. "It could study the pros
and cons."
When commission chairman
Paul Mercier injected the possibility
of an appointed sheriff into the dis-
cussion which county voters

BACK IN TIME,
WOODMERE MILL, EARLY 1920s






,










Mill and main gate with railroad cars loaded with finished
lumber on the left. From 1918-1923, Manasota Lumber
Company operated the logging town of Woodmere near
Englewood on the southwestern coast of Florida, accord-
ing to the Division of Forestry manuscript entitled, "A
History of Florida Forests." Woodmere had 1,500 homes, a
commissary, dining room, two churches, a movie house, a
sawmill and railroads at the gate. In later years, the com-
pany installed an electrified fence, and no workers were
allowed to leave after 9 p.m.; the only explanation being
that it was "for their own protection."

Sarasota tourists to pay 1-percent more


From the Nov. 13, 1996, edition of the Venice Gondolier Sun.


BY STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER

April Fools Day will be-
come "April Tax Day". for
Sarasota County hotel and
motel owners.
Sarasota County commis-
sioners decided Tuesday to
approve a 1-percent increase
to the county's existing 2-per-
cent tax on hotel, motel and
other short-term rentals, often
called a bed tax. The addition-


al revenue will increase county
funds used for beach mainte-
nance and for year-round
tourist promotion.
The 3-percent bed tax will
go into effect April 1.
The existing 2-percent
tourist tax on rentals less
than six months earns $1.5
million for each percent
charged. According to the
county's present formula, 50
percent goes for beaches, 25
percent for the arts and the


final 25 percent for tourism
advertising during the off-
sehson summer months.
,The 1-percent hike has
been a troublesome issue
but not so much for the
increase itself. Commission-
ers wrestled more with how
the tax money should be
spent and on what and when
should it go into effect.
The board recently spent
an entire workshop trying to
hammer out a compromise
so it might attain the required
4-1 super majority to pass the


tax. However, that meeting
ended in a stalemate.
On ,his last day on the
board Tuesday, Commission-
er Charley Richards raised the
issue again. He said his pri-
mary concern was to spend
the money on beaches, espe-
cially for those sorely needing
renourishment, like Lido
Beach on Longboat Key.
Just like the workshop, the
debate Tuesday floundered
over how much of' the tax
money should be spent,
along with where andc when.

The ray that got away


Short term. Long term.

No term. It's your choice.


SUN PHOTO 6'i JONATHAN FREDIN
John Macinnis of Pinkney, Mich., leads a crowd of beachgoers along the shoreline as he
attempts to reel in a ray on Englewood Beach. Not knowing what he had snagged until it
jumped, Maclnnis battled the ray for more than 20 minutes until it broke his line just feet
from the shore. Bathers have reported numerous flapping fins in recent days as schools of
cow-nosed rays migrate along the coast. Environmentalists advise people to shuffle their
feet while in the water to avoid being stung. If you are stung, they say, just wash the sting
with hot water.

Downtown project mixes historic with the new


New hospital signs and a 5-acre retail center
along Laurel Road are also up for approval by the
pl1mnitng commission.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


Local architect Dan lone-
scu had plenty of compli-
ments tossed his way by
members of the Architect-
ural Review Board on Thurs-
day as they approved his lat-
est project, The Terraces, as
meeting all Venetian Theme
District appearance stan-
dards.
Now the downtown project
goes to the Venice Planning
Commission for final approval
Tuesday. Jean Trammell's
business, The Venice Com-
pany, intends to build a pair
of three-story, mixed use
buildings behind the historic
Luna Risorante building at
200 St. Augustine Ave.
Ionescu was complimented
for blending the large, newer
buildings in with the existing
historic structure. Luna's
building, built in the 1920s,
steps up from one to two
stories.
That, combined with the
grass courtyard in front of
Luna's, makes The Terraces
and Luna's appear to be
"linked visually," ARB member
Mark Bebee said.
"We do want it to be one
project, both from the pedes-
trian and parking Viewpoint,"


lonescu said to the ARB.
Terraces details
The Terraces and Luna's'
are on a triangle-shaped
island surrounded by North
Nokomis Avenue, Santa
Maria Street and St.
Augustine Avenue. The Venice
Little The-atre, another major
landmark, is directly across
the street
on Nokomis Avenue.
Instead of the lot shape
being treated as a problem,
Bill Hager of Charles Hager
Construction said it gives
him and lonescu the chance
to be creative.
The design calls for hiding
most of the parking spots
underneath the buildings by
digging into the ground..
There would be retail on the
first floor, retail and offices on
the second floor and eight
residential units spread
between the second and third
floors.
Throughout, there will be
several balconies, covered
walkways and open-air ter-
races and courtyards on the
0.55-acre site.
Trammell, who is heavily
involved in historical preser-
vation, said after the meeting
her goal was to-design a pro-
ject to look like Venice of the


1920s.
"We've taken a great deal ....
of pains with the details," .- .

New standards approved for U.S. 41 Business


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


Though it passed with
much less fanfare, another
new zoning district was creat-
ed last Tuesday at the city
,council meeting that could
rival Mike Miller's Co mmercial
Mixed-Use District for re-
shaping the look of Venice
island.
The Venetian Urban Design
Overlay District passed with
little discussion and will affect
all future development along
U.S. 41 Business between
Milan Avenue and the Circus
Bridge.
VUD did not generate
nearly as much debate as the
CMU proposal. City staff
conceived and created the
VUD ordinance, while Miller,
president of Waterford Com-
panies, wrote the CMU ordi-
nance and then city staff
revised his proposal until it
passed 4-3 by a divided coun-
cil.
City planners state the
goal of VUD is to create pe-
destrian-friendly develop-
ments along both sides of
U.S. 41. Business and main-
tain Northern Italian Renais-
sance theme architecture.

week's meeting:

passed an ordinance giving
code enforcement officers the
power to issue citations -

Currently, only property own-

Tickets can be for up to $500,
and all challenges must be in
front of a judge, rather than

forcement Board. Items that
could lead to a $500 ticket
include: sea turtle light rules,
unlicensed contracting and
unsafe-house violations.
Water deposits Council
heard first reading of an ordi-
nance about water-account

change to refund water de-

Rezoning a threat to waterfront restaurant?


The county has promised to address other park
concerns in the Osprey area, if only on a
temporary basis.


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

A proposed rezoning to
allow development of a 5.5.-
acre tract bordering Bay
Street to the north, U.S. 41 on
the east and Bayview Avenue
on the south in Osprey has
upset the community's revi-
talization committee for
months.
The proposal 10 months
ago sent committee mem-
bers scurrying to several
county departments to seek
advice on how to proceed.
If the rezoning is approved
by the county, it could, in the
opinion of many Osprey resi-
dents, lead to the closing of
the popular Spanish Pointe
Marina Grille on Bayview. It is


one of the few remaining
waterfront restaurants in the
county
Originally brought before
the committee last January,
the proposal calls for 55 con-
dominiums at the waterfront
end of the site and 11 two-
story retail units with apart-
ments on the second floor
along U.S. 41.
'The retail units would be
about 1,500 square feet.
Clusters of condominiums
would be spaced from along
the water's edge to the center
of the property.
In the original Osprey
Revitalization Plan, which
evolved in the 1990s, about 14
acres of land .west of U.S. 41
and north ofthe Hidden Bay
condominium community to


Webb Street were scheduled
to be a mixed-use area.
Waterfront restaurants,
shops, hotels, clustered
homes and condominiums,
offices and a jecr-.atiun area
were to be created. Public
access to Little Sarasota Bay
was deemed to be essential in
the plan.
But the proposed rezoning
of the 5.5-acre site represents
half the total area,
A master plan to revitalize
all 14 acres was considered
necessary by county plan-
ners.
The revitalization commit-
tee can only advise. Ultimate
decisions are up to the coun-
ty planning commission,
then the board of county
commissioners.
Resolution has not ad-
vanced for six years. Storm
surge and affordable housing
were added as criteria last
summer by the BOCC.


Fixes
Once a fishing village, Os-
prey offered many points of
waterfront access to resi-
dents.
"You could fish from a pier
or a boat ramp on Little
Sarasota Bay," recalled Jim
Leland, vice chair of the com-
mittee. "Or you could wade
into the water, or go further in
a rowboat. We need to find
ways to get back that kind of
access."r
The committee may have
found an interim solution in
concert with the county's
Parks and Recreation depart-
ment. Meeting recently with
John McCarthy, general man-
ager of the department, com-
mittee members asked how
access could be improved
now.
McCarthy had some inter-
im solutions.
He urged the community
to recruit volunteers who
could work with his depart-


ment to keep Bay Street at
Webb trash-free. If residents
could keep trash off the roads
and maintain receptacles, he
promised that department
trucks could empty the recep-
tacles and monitor roadways.
A bench installed by resi-
dents at the kayak and canoe
launch on Main Street with
similar trash problems could
be maintained by the depart-
ment, he said.
He hoped a cooperative
effort between his crews and
residents could keep the
receptacles in working order
for trucks to empty on a regu-
lar schedule.
McCarthy promised to
take steps to upgrade mainte-
nance of Bay Street to the
water, and work with resi-
dents to monitor owners of
boats, cars and trailers who
park illegally, and block
access to the water.
He said that the depart-
ment will investigate a fishing


pier on Main Street that gets
little local use because park-
ing is so limited. Redesign of
the space could help canoers
and kayakers get onto the
pier.
Posting signs about park-
ing regulations may also help,
McCarthy suggested.
Webb Street and Palmetto
Avenue neighbors of the
Burrows-Matson house on
Palmetto expressed concern
that increased activity there
will create traffic, congestion.
The house and the 4.38-acre
property on which it stands
will be developed as a natural
history museum and a hiking
trail by the Sarasota Conser-
vation Foundation.
Mary Ann Gentile of the
committee, who said she has
lived in the neighborhood for
30 years, said that the road-
ways now are too narrow for
fire-fighting trucks. McCarthy
promised to look into that
problem as well.


Land buy may delay park development


BYGERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Improvements to Black-
bum Point Park, in the plan-
ning stage for more than
three years, may be held up
further as a result of last July's
purchase by Sarasota County
of an 11-acre waterfront tract
less than 300 yards south on
Blackburn Point Road in
Osprey.
John McCarthy, general
manager of parks and recre-
ation for the county, ex-
plained the delay to the
Osprey Revitalization Com-


mittee.
"We think it is best to tie
together planning and design
of both properties," he said.
The park is just west and
north of the swing bridge over
the Intracoastal Waterway,
and connects Casey Key with
the mainland. The 11-acre
waterfront land is on the
south side of Blackburn Point
Road, steps away from the
park.
The 3-year-old concept
plan for the 5-acre park called
for shared use by the general
public, the Casey Key library,
the Scullers rowing club, the


Casey Key Association and
Friends of Think Tank Inc., a
nonprofit organization that
wants to establish a studio
workshop for creative arts
and sciences in an aban-
doned water tank leased to it
by the county. -
A canoe, kayak and flat-
bottom boat ramp into the'
waterway at the northwest
end of the park is open to the
public.
Landscape designers with
county parks and recreation
foresee transferring cabbage
palm trees to the park from
other county land, and plant-


ings of native trees. A post-
and-rope fence would sepa-
rate the park from the road-
way and parking spaces.
McCarthy said that the
county had originally plan-
ned to raze the water tank,'
but that decision awaits ne-
gotiations with the Friends
organization.
'Great buy'
Soil tests and environmen-
tal assessments have been
completed in the county's
due diligence process for the
waterfront land.
It was purchased last July


for $16 million for use as a
public boat ramp. At the time,
it was the first county pur-
chase of land for such pur-
pose in almost 10 years.
McCarthy told the com-
mittee that the deal should be
closed in January.
"This was a great buy," he
said. "The property contains
wetlands, coastal hammomcks,
some wonderful old trees. It
offers us the opportunity to
preserve some open green
land."
In addition to a boat ramp
with two lanes, there is space
within the 11 acres for park-


ing and picnic facilities.
The county purchased the
property from Mary G. Young
and her husband, Don. Her
grandparents, Walter and
Eula Blackburn, were descen-
dants of one of the earliest
families to settle in Osprey.
Their ownership of the land
went back to 1884. It was part
of a homestead that extended
from what is now Oscar
Scherer Park north to Black-
bum Point Road along both
side of U.S. 41.It extended west',
to the Intracoastal Waterway
fromU.S. 41 alongboth sides of
Blackburn Point Road.

"That was a hotly contest-

sioner David Mills recalled,

"Do we want to spend time
and energy on that?" she
asked. "It would muddy the

Gold watch time?


the commissioners.
On Tuesday afternoon,
Balkwill denied that he had
ever discussed retiring with
Mercier.,
"That's not a decision I'll
make for another year and a
half," he said. -"I'm still a
young man. I have not had
any conversations with Paul
about this subject."
With respect to the MSTU
proposal, Balkwill said,
"People who have budget
questions should ask me. I get
about 15 or 20 minutes to talk
about my budget ever year
with commissioners."


"They (the commissioners)
have this doubt. It really puz-
zles me. My budget book is
three inches thick. Shame on
them if they don't look at it. I
let the county audit me last
year, and it made no recom-
meridations."
On Oct. 21, County Attor-
ney Steve DeMarsh issued a
legal opinion that stated a
Municipal Services- Taxing
Unit could be created by the
county commission that
appears as a line item in the
annual budget and raises
enough revenue to pay for the

created by a county, they can
only be used to collect rev-
enue in municipalities if city
officials agree.
"Further, it is within the-
municipality's discretion as to
how long it will be included,"
DeMarsh stated.
He goes onto note that an
MSTU for the sheriff's depart-
mentwould count against the
city's millage cap, but not
against the county's millage
cap.
If given a chance, it is
doubtful the city of Sarasota
would agree to an MSTU for
sheriff's services within the
municipal limits unless it was
proportionally reduced to
account for the absence of
road patrol services provided
by deputies in the city.
A. dual taxation lawsuit
between the city and county
was settled when a 1984
Florida Supreme Court deci-
sion affirmed: "the sheriff's
road patrol and detective,
divisions provide not only a
minimal level of direct benefit
(to city residents), but also a
substantial degree of indirect
benefit."

follow the city manager's lead
until the charter eventually
can be changed.
Black supports the propos-
al by council members be-
cause the city charter requires
every investigation and report
on the police or fire depart-
ment to be discussed in a
public meeting. By giving city
manager complete control,
all findings would remain at
the staff level and not head to
city council.
That means most people
outside of Venice City Hall
would have never been aware
of the Matrix Report's findings.
In his 25 years of finding
police chiefs, Slavin said most
candidates prefer reporting
directly to a city manager
instead of elected officials.
Pay day
.Council members also
asked about suggested salary.


They wanted to know if the
advertised $85,000 to $95,000
a year in annual salary was
enough to hire a new chief.
For a Florida city the size of
Venice, that salary seemed
appropriate, Slavin said.
Then Simmonds told his
fellow council members that
he'swilling to approve paying
someone up to $110,000 a
year if the city manager said
that's who he wants to hire.
The rest of council re--
mained silent and stared at
Simmonds, and then jokingly
asked the reporter to not pub-
licize that suggested salary.
"To be honest, I'd rather
not put $95,000 out there
because you irdght not have
to pay it," Slavin said. "But
once you do say $95, then
candidates focus on $97."

Looking for some answers about red tide


A quotation often (wrongly) attributed to
Mark Twain goes something like:
"Everyone talks about the weather, but
nobody ever d6es anything about it."
We're becoming concerned the same
thing could be said about red tide.
Those bothersome blooms are leaving us
alone right now, but they were here in vary-
ing strengths over much of the last 11
months. Anyone who thinks they won't be
back probably thinks we're all done with hur-
ricanes, too.
Red tide is nasty stuff. Breathe it in and
you get a tickle in your throat, watery eyes
and a bit of a cough.
For most those symptoms go away quick-
ly, but people with respiratory problems suf-
fer more.
It can be lethal to sea life: huge fish kills;
dolphin, sea turtle and manatee deaths;
dead zones in the gulf.
And then there are the economic impacts:
tourists cutting short their stays or choosing
to vacation elsewhere; seasonal residents


spending less time and money in the area;
locals avoiding waterfront activities.
If anyone sees a silver lining in this red
cloud, please speak up.
Obviously, we need to conquer this prob-
lem, and the sooner, the better. It seems,
though, that the vast majority of time, money
and effort being expended on red tide is
going to research on how it affects us and
how to detect it, rather than how to get rid of
it.
Those are important issues, and we cer-
tainly aren't advocating the indiscriminate
duinping of chemicals into the state's water
in the hope something makes red tide
blooms go away. We need to know all we can
about the red tide alga and why it does what
it does, to develop treatments as well as pre-
ventive measures.
And we need to understand the effects red
tide has on marine animals so we can devise
cures, if not vaccines.
But most of all, we need to know how to
safely and effectively dissolve the blooms,


RED TIDE FORUM
Join us Thursday, Nov. 17, for a public forum
on red tide. Government officials and other
interested persons will explain their role in
dealing with the problem and answer ques-
tions from the audience.
The forum will be at the Venice Community
Center, 326 S. Nokomis Ave., Venice, begin-
ning at 9 a.m.

preferably when they are as far away as pos-
sible.
Red tide exists around the world, and
other countries have methods of treating it.
-Mote Marine Laboratory, which gets sub-
stantial government funding for research, is
studying some of them.
Mote, however, seems to be giving a high-
er priority to detection. It has proposed
,establishing. red tide monitors along the
Southwest Florida coast at a cost of $30 mil-
-lion to $450 million per year.


Nokomis resident Bob Rigby claims to
have a curte, and tests by science students at
Venice High School back him up. But Rigby
says he needs several million dollars to
develop and test the equipment to put his
cure into use. He's filing for patents and look-
ing for a patron.
So, what can be done today to move clos-
er to a red tide remedy?
That's one of the questions we intend to
ask the panel members at a red tide public
forum we are sponsoring Thursday. It starts
at the Venice Community Center at 9 a.m.
We've invited some of the agencies and
people who have a stake in the answer to tell
us what they're working on and what they
need to get the job done.
We hope that by getting the scientists and
government officials in the same room, in
front of an audience of concerned citizens,
we can figure out what is standing in the way
of a red tide cure and chart a course around
it:
We hope to see you there.


Let's hope it



turns out OK

COLUMNIST

There were many votes
this past week that will shape
the looks of the area we live
in. None was as big to
Venetians as the new Com-
mercial-Mixed Use district
approved by city council.
What it can allow and what
council and the planning.
commission finally approve
with each submission will be
most important, Unfortu-
nately, the language allows for
a lot, including heights to 80
feet by conditional use permit
and condominiums not to
exceed a stay of more than six
months.
Whether council will allow
80 feet is the one action likely
to change the character of our
downtown.
It was disappointing it,
wasn't council and others that
proposed what our city was
going to look like. It was
essentially passed as pro-
posed, with some added,
restrictions and not quite as
open-ended on the condo-
minium hotel concept, but
altogether pretty much as
proposed. The base height
was lowered.
I do not think this district is
what would have been.
arrived at had the city and its
board started from scratch.
My two concerns are
whether we will have nightly
hotel rooms in season and
not have excessive density
and height. :
If those rooms end up
being occupied by the owner
in season, then we really have
created a very bad thing. If,
however, we have plenty of
short-term hotel rooms in
season and less density while
keeping the very attractive
style that was shown in the
developer's presentation, I
think we all won.
Rick, Tacy's Iwin was cer-
tainly well deserved.
The Gondolier Sun did
something I cannot remem-
ber doing in 27 years: endors-
ing without interviewing the
candidates. It became appar-
ent pretty quickly that Mr.
Anderson was not a viable
candidate. We knew from his


history that he was not what
we would like to endorse, but
sometimes people get better
and change. Sometimes they
get involved and perform on
city boards or even in the
community.
We wanted to see if that
was the case. When he opted
to miss a couple of forums,
we figured he had not chang-
ed. It was not so much that he
missed' 'the' ,f6Id s,' because
there ate alwaytiohflicts and
sickness. But he did not have
the courtesy to tell the groups
he would not be there. That
was the kind of arrogance we
felt made him unworthy, on
top of not having seen any
learning of the community or
the city.
Thus, we did not think he
'deserved a further look. Plus,
in our view Mr. Tacy has been
a very solid council member.
Rick speaks his mind more
than any council member,
which from time to time gets
him in trouble. But it is
refreshing to see someone not
trying too hard to be always
politically correct.
Rick is not a party liner. He
often goes with the flow but
many times calls for a closer
look at whatever is being pro-
posed. It was unfortunate his
accident happened during
the campaign.
The third vote was a very
solid mandate for protecting
environmentally sensitive
lands, maybe like Snook
Haven, as well as allowing the
purchase of parks and other
open spaces. We already have
one of the best park systems
in the country and this will'
only add .to that. It was sad
that so few people cared to
vote, though.
The county is being criti-
cized for putting out literature
favoring the vote, which is not
a position it should take.

By's Crack: My dad -
"By," as he is called by some
friends wrote a column
for a newspaper trade pub-
lication recently. In it he
said "My doctor told me to
stay away from stress, so
when his bill came, I didn't
open it."


We certainly can be proud
of the Venice High athletes
who competed this week.
The girls golf team, with
only one senior, did very well
seventh place in the state
championships.

Make the holidays happy for all


Editor:
This holiday season, so many South County families are at
risk and in need of the basics just to even realize the holidays
exist and are a time of joy and happiness.
Please, call 955-6767 and adopt a family.
Celebrate the season with a bold new approach. Shop for,
gift wrap for and provide the gifts for a family at risk, a family in
need of some help.
There are more than 600 families in Sarasota County that
Sarasota Adopt a Family must have adopted for the upcoming
holidays. Please, drop off at Hot Flash Boutique any donations
of toys, gift cards, food, diapers, holiday decorations, kitchen-
ware, household items whatever is new around your home
that you have no use for can make another family so apprecia-
tive and grateful to have.
With the holidays all about giving, let this be the year you
bring holidays to those who otherwise just work and live
through these days of warmth, family, friendship and giving as
if if they were more days of struggle and surviving.
Please, make a difference this year for local families that are
just getting by.

No city money
given for parade

Editor:
I should like to correct the
misconception created by the
item titled, "Wanted: More
bands," which appeared in
the Let'em Have It feature on
page 7A of the Nov. 4, issue.
The item states, "The city
ofVenice has given the parade
committee a lot of money ...
and the surplus they've built
up should be used ... since it
is taxpayer money- to bring
more bands."
The city ofVehice does not
give the parade committee
any money for it to bank. It
either reimburses members
of the committee for approv-
ed expenditures or charges
the parade account for other


parade related expenditures.
Thus, there is no "surplus ...
built up." Whenever all
appropriated funds are not
expended, the balance
remains with the city for it to
use as city council authorizes.
In addition, the parade
committee has extended invi-
tations to area bands. A few
accept, some decline, while
others don't even bother to
respond. If the Riverview or
Sarasota High bands wish to
participate, within the limits
of the committee's cost reim-
bursement rates, a responsi-
ble band official need only
call Sue Hebert at 488-8780,
posthaste.
I respectfully request that
you help us dispel the unfor-
tunate misconception creat-
ed by your contributor's com-


ments.

You can't have
it both ways
Editor:
The people of Venice want
to let go of six police officers,
but everyday in your paper I
read letters they write to com-
plain about speeding and
crimes not being handled.
Obviously, there, is a need
for more officers so all of
these problems can be han-
dled. Losing six officers will
make all of these problems
that all of you complain about
worse.
Also, when you really
would need help, it will take a
lot longer for them to help,
because they now will be
shorter staffed.
'.I think it is horrible how
the people. in Venice treat
their police officers until they
need them. These officers put
their lives on the line every
day for all of us and for not
that good of pay, and they try
to handle every problem as
fast and as best as they can.
Look at all the complaints
in this paper that could be
handled if there 'would be
enough officers to handle
them. Now take away those
six officers you wanted to be
let go. Think, that's six more
that won't be there when you
need them.
So I would think about that
before you write this newspa-


per with complaints about
problems not being handled,
because it's only going to get
worse. It was your choice to
let those six officers go, not
theirs.

pipeline memories
Editor:
Regarding your recent two-
part article on Bartlesville,
Okla., let me say, many years
ago I was a young engineer
working for Sinclair Pipeline
Company in Independence,
Kan., a town located about 45
miles northeast of Bartles-
ville.
* Often worked on projects
with Phillips Company engi-
neers and also with the Con-
oco people, who at that time
were located in Ponca City,
Okla. Mr. Price, who at that
time was located in the Price
Tower, was the president of a
very large pipeline contract-
ing company, known and
respected throughout the
pipeline industry.
In 1960 Sinclair, Phillips
and seven other major oil
companies formed the Co-
lonial Pipeline Company
headquartered in Atlanta,
Ga., for the purpose of con-,
structing and operating the

The affordable housing enigma


JON THAXTON
GUEST COLUMNIST


If you are like me, your
head is spinning with all the
talk about affordable housing.
As recently as five years
ago, most of us, including
those in the housing industry,
had never heard of communi-
ty housing trust funds, land
trusts or inclusionary zoning.
Now all three, and many more
ideas with catchy names, are
being considered to alleviate
the pent up demand for work-
force housing in- Sarasota
County.
It's easy to be confused. We
can't even decide on a name
- workforce housing, com-
munity housing, attainable
housing, affordable housing.
Take your pick.
When faced with a compli-
cated issue, I try to simplify it
into its most understandable
components by working
through simple questions and
obvious facts. For affordable
housing (that's what I'm going
to call it), the bottom line is
we simply do not have


enough of it. Why? Because
we aren't building any.
Until about eight years
ago, even construction work-
ers could afford the houses
and condos they were build-
ing in Sarasota County.
Building both high-end and
low-end homes had been
continuous since. John Ring-
lingwas building his $1.5 mil-
lion bayfront Ca d'Zan and
my grandfather was' building
simple frame homes in the
Arlington Park area.
The .need for affordable
homes hasn't ended, even if
we aren't building them. If
anything, the need has in-
creased.
If there's a demand for af-
fordable homes, why did we
stop building them? I suggest
a very simple answer the
market. Free markets, the
hallmark of the American
economy, tend to take the
path of higher profits and
least resistance.
And so does each of us. Do
you wake up in the morning
and say to yourself, "Today,
I'm going to find the hardest
work for the least pay?" Of
course not. We strive for effi-
ciencies, profit and ease, to
better enjoy our lives and
support our families. And so
does the market, because we
are the market.
If you were a homebuilder
and you had a choice of
building a $500,000 home
with a high-profit margin for


a cash buyer, or building a
$125,000 home with a low-
profit margin for a buyer who
has credit issues and needs a
loan, which house are you
going to build? There are no
incentives in Sarasota's real
estate market to build afford-
able homes, but there are,
many disincentives.
Some would suggest that
impact fees, land supply, pro-
tection for environmentally
sensitive land and density
create a shortage of afford-
able housing. But the facts
suggest otherwise.-
If impact fees ($5,400 per
new home, excluding utili-
ties) were completely elimi-
nated, the price of a new
home the only homes that
pay impact fees would
only drop to $494,600 from
$500,000. This is about as
effective as removing the light
bulb in a refrigerator to lower
your electric bill. Even with-
out impact fees, the market
quickly would drive the price
back where it was.
The supply of developable
land also is blamed for our
affordable-housing shortage.
The argument is that if you
create more supply, prices
will fall.
But in reality; this hasn't
been the case. Affordable
housing is just as much of a.
problem in Sarasota County
as it is in counties such as Lee
and Collier, where huge tracts
of agricultural and environ-


mental land has been
approved for massive, high-
end development projects.
Despite the additional supply
of developable land, the
affordable housing crisis in
those counties has worsened.
North Port is a great exam-
ple. The city not 'only has
40,000 existing vacant lots,
North Port dramatically -ex-
panded the availability of
developable, land by annex-
ing more than 15,000 acres to
support another 35,000 lots.
Yet North Port is experiencing
the most rapid price increas-
es in the city's history.
While the supply of devel-
opable land has increased at
an unprecedented rate, home
prices and taxes have blasted
through the roof.
By the time enough devel-
opable land is created to
effectively ,offset today's
unprecedented demands and
bring prices down into the
affordable range, the infra-
structure budgets required to
service that supply will be
bankrupt and today's quality
of life in Sarasota will be a dis-
tant memory. The demand is
that great.
Most communities through-
out the nation with affordable
housing shortages have no
environmental-land protec-
tion programs. Even with all
of Sarasota County's existing
and proposed land-protec-
tion programs, there would
still be enough developable


land to accommodate 10
times our affordable housing
needs if the market desir-
ed. But it hasn't.
Several parcels of environ-
mental and potential park
lands were recently lost to
development expensive
luxury development, and not
one single affordable-hous-
ing unit was built.
Protecting the environ-
ment for future generations
now, while it's still available, is
hardly an impediment to
supplying land for affordable
housing. There are no legiti-
mate connections, only self-
serving rhetoric from those
who want the land for devel-
opment and misunderstand-
ings from others.
The density argument alone,
which sounds superficially logi-
cal, also belies the facts.
Affordable housing short-
ages are notorious in many of
the most densely populated
areas of the nation, the state
and the county. And you
wouldn't want to live in the
densely populated areas
where this fact isn't the rule.
Downtown Sarasota,
where densities have in-
creased dramatically, pro-
vides a recent and classic
example. Compare the price
lists (market values) before
and after the additional den-
sity. Additional densities have
resulted in replacing afford-
able small homes and apart-
ments with high-end luxury


condominiums.
There's another significant
contribution to the affordable
housing dilemma. For a large
portion of our workforce, the
ability to pay monthly hous-
ing expenses has eroded
exponentially. The rise in
housing costs is half of the
equation, but inadequate
wages are the other half. If
wages had kept pace and
were still commensurate with
the cost of housing, afford-
able housing would be a frac-
tion of the issue it is today.
Sarasota County and other
communities throughout the
nation have shortages of
affordable housing because
we live in a community where
buyers with wealth want to
live and they are willing to
pay to get here. The market is
responding to an extraordi-
nary demand for higher-
priced homes.
The lack of affordable
housing isn't the fault of gov-
ernment, home builders,
developers or luxury-home
buyers. Likewise, the solution
can't be the sole responsibility
one of these groups either.
We got into this mess as a
community, and that's the
only way we can get out of it.
Jon Thaxton is a Sarasota
County Commissioner and a
lifelong resident of Sarasota
County. In his next guest col-
, umn he will discuss some
potential solutions to the
affordable-housing problem.

While their record was not
so good, their play has been.
Nick Cpleman has continual-
ly played the top competition.
For instance, to achieve our
losses we lost to four district

No more tall boats. One way to solve the traffic problem at
the intersection of Venice Avenue and Tamiami Trail would be
to prohibit boats higher than 30 feet from using the In-
tracoastal Waterway from the Venice Inlet in Nokomis to
Stump Pass iEnglewood; or maybe a newpass could be made
near Alligator Creek. In this way, the Venice Avenue Bridge and
the Hatchett Creek Bridge would never have to open. The
Coast Guard may object, but 40 years ago it should never have
been allowed to put that canal through Venice, and it should
bend over backwards to accommodate the city of Venice. I
doubt if there is any other city in this country that the Coast


Guard put a canal through.

Unprepared. We had heard
for five or six days the hurri-
cane was coming our way. I
myself prepared the best I

watching TV and seeing all

taking more than 12 hours to

ple whose houses collapsed,
whose mobile homes rolled
or who are caught in debris
and long-term repairs. Not
the people who were watch-
ing this storm come across
the gulf and the state and still
did not get up off their butts
and fill up a couple jugs of
water. I almost can't believe it.
What did they think?
No'clue. I'm calling about
the article about Venice City
Manager Marty Black against
the Venice city police depart-
ment. He said the city itself is
getting bigger; then why does
he want to cut back on the
police? They are doing a very
good job and I feel sorry for
the people in the city of
Venice because they really
don't have a clue what's going
on with Matrix.
Hurricane safe. No, I didn't
evacuate for Hurricane Wilma
because I felt everything
would be a lot safer in Sara-
sota County and the city of
Venice. I felt we have excellent
emergency responses. If any-
thing did happen, as far as an
emergency, it would be taken


care of quickly.
. Vulgar article. I'm calling
about Mr. Button's headline
and article "People, not dying
in the summertime,. his
Oct.'?i column. I think that's
about as disrespectful and
vulgar as just about anything
I've seen in your paper to
date. I suggest that Mr. Button
be edited or deleted.
Sad state. In reading the
Let'em Have It comment,
"Get or with it," I really think
this was an attack on a girl by
saying she wasn't as innocent
as everyone thought at first.
Dear lord in heaven. We see
sad events every day in our
country, all of our children
that are attacked. But this
child was too and claiming
whether she was innocent or
not is a sad state of our coun-
try.
Be specific. I see that the
school board is reporting that
half of the referendum dollars
have been spent on lowering
class sizes to an average of 17
students in kindergarten
through third grade. They
need to show us which ele-


mentary schools have class-
rooms that small. All the ones
around here have 22-24 stu-
dents per classroom, and also
the state's giving them extra
money to reduce class. sizes.
So let's give us all the facts.
Any smarter? We continu-
ally hear how well Floridians
handle hurricanes. A person
has to be deaf, dumb and
blind not to know about pre-
paredness, yet the day after
Wilma hit, folks in Broward
County were standing in line
for water, ice, meals and gas.
They surely weren't all unin-
formed vacationers. Are we
any smarter here in Venice? I
certainly hope so.
Please, no clinic. I hope it's
a rumor that the new Super
Wal-Mart in Osprey is going
to Vput a health clinic in their
store. That would mean food
products, merchandise and
customers would be exposed
to the people who go there for
treatment. Please tell me it
isn'tso.
EDITOR'S NOTE: There's been
no mention of a health clinic from
Wal-Mart.

11 Critical Home Inspection Traps
You Should Know About
Before You Put Your Home Up For Sale


Sarasota County According to industry
experts, there are over 33 physical problems
that will come under scrutiny during a home
inspection when your home is for sale. A new
report has been prepared which identifies the
eleven most common of these problems, and
what you should know about them before you
list your home for sale.
Whether you own an old home or a
brand new one, there are a number of things
that can fall short of requirements during a
home inspection. If not identified and dealt
with, any of these 11 items could cost you
dearly in terms of repair. That's why it's
critical that you read this report before you list
your home. If you wait until the building'
inspector flags these issues for you, you will
almost certainly experience costly delays in
the close of your home sale or, worse, turn
prospective buyers away altogether.
OC tl .pth w ma .


In most cases, you can make a
reasonable pre-inspection yourself if you
know what you're looking for, and knowing
what you're looking for can help you
prevent little problems from growing into
costly and unmanageable ones.
To help homesellers deal with this
issue before their home is listed, a free
report entitled "11 Things You Need to-Know
to Pass Your Home Inspection" has been
compiled which explains the issues
involved.

Venice Aviation Society Inc. publishes'fly-friendly' procedures


Noise abatement is outlined in a new aviation
safety brochure designed for pilots and other
users of the Venice Municipal Airport.


- H IGGILlS


Noise abatement proce-
dures have been Incorporat-
pd into a new fly-friendly
brochure published by the
Venice Aviation Society hnc. in
cooperation with the Venice
MunicipalAirport.
The brochure was unveil-
ed at the Airport Advisory
Board meeting on Wednes-
day.
The aviation safety bro-
chure is designed to remind
pilots and users ofVNC the
facility's aviation designation
about rules on the ground,
in the air, on the radio and
over noise-sensitive areas.
The section on friendly
flight procedures was devel-
oped in part to address con-
cerns raised about noise
abatement by the Venice
Neighborhoods Coalition. It
includes a map of noise-sen-
sitive areas encompassing the
quadrants niorth-northwest


to southeast of the airport. '
The coalition made a
series of detailed recommen-
dations in writing to the air-
port back in May, and dis-
cussed others during airport
advisory board meetings over
the summer.
VASI published the bro-
chure for pilots, tenants and
transients to remind them of
flight friendly procedures,
said Paul Hollowell, chairman
of the Airport Advisory Board.
"Most pilots are willing to
abide by the guidelines," he
said. "It's a good reminder for
everybody."
"Staff is continually work-
ing with airport users, includ-
ing all aviation companies, to
educate pilots using the air-
port with the voluntary fly
friendly procedures," added
Airport Manager Fred Watts.
The following excerpts are
from the new brochure. For
more information contact
VASI atVeniceAviationSociety
.corn.


On the drive in
Stop after going through
the gate to block unautho-
rized entry. This applies to
ingress and egress. The
ground vehicle speed limit is
10 mph. Vehicles should
,avoid taxiways. Aircraft al-
ways have the right of way. Do.
not drive or park to block an
aircraft.
On the ground
Don't leave your aircraft at
the gas pump While you take
a "bio break." Tow it aside to
allow others access. Move air-
craft to avoid prop blast of
sensitive areas.
Remember, Federal Avi-
ation Regulations/Aeronau-
tical Information Manual
says the pilot in command is
responsible. If you are in the
line at -a tiedown, pull your
aircraft out and turn it per-
pendicular to the line before
starting.
Do not taxi near aircraft or
vehicles in such a way as to
blast them with your prop
blast. FAR Part 91 places the
responsibility solely on the
pilot for damage causes ,on
the ground by the operation


of an aircraft.,
Run-up .for runways 04
and 31 is at the maintenance
runup area on old 109-27
rather than at the end of the
runway.
In the air
Observe preference for
runway 04/22. Traffic in the.
pattern, allow jets to use 22.
Extend your downwind,
break off from touch-and-
go's, or wait a moment at the
end of the runway. You log
more time, and the pilots and
neighbors will appreciate it.
Climb to at least 700 feet
AGL (above ground level)
before turning crosswind or
on course. Enter the pattern
either on 2-mile, 45-degree
entry to the downwind leg or
on an upwind leg. Avoid the
5-mile, straight-in approach.
Keep your pattern as close
to the airport as safe and be
aware of the speed and size of
other aircraft in the pattern,
and where they are flying.
On the radio
Listen' first, then talk.
When switching to 122.7, lis-
ten for 30 seconds, then


announce your position and
intentions. If you listened to
the Automated Weather Ob-
serving : System (119.275),
then you already picked up
the wind-favorable runway.
This is the runway people are
likely using.
If you see obstructions
near the airport (i.e. kites, bal-
loons, model planes, rockets
and the like) advise UNICONM
and notify the airport manag-
er. Airport administrations
hours are 8 a.m.-4 p.m.,
Monday through Friday.
Keep radio chatter to a
minimum. Use air-to-air fre-
quencies such as 128.5 or
129.5 for personal communi-
cation, rather than Universal
Integrated Communications
System. Arid use 131.3 to talk
to Triple Diamond.
Remain on' 122.7 until
clear of the runway and
approach area. During peak
season/peak operations,
Common Traffic Advisory
Frequency can be congested,
which restricts vital arrival
and departure advisories.
Currently- there are five air-
ports in the Venice broadcast
range sharing the 122.7 CTAF.


If you have dual comes,
inbound monitor 119.65 to
pick up any Tampa-con-
trolled incoming aircraft.
Venice AWOS is 119.275.
Arrivals, departures
Recommendations for ar-
rivals and departures are: '
1. Runway 22 is the calm-
wind runway., Turbojets are
requested to use runway 22
whenever possible.
2. On departure, maintain
runway heading and best rate
of climb airspeed to 700 feet
AGL when practical.
3. Traffic pattern altitude is
1,000 feet AGL.
4. Runway 13 is right traf-
fic. This greatly reduces the
sound footprint over populat-
ed areas.
5. The maintenance run-
up area is located at the cen-
ter of the airport on the' closed
runway adjacent to Taxiway
C. Please use this run-up area
regardless of departure run-
way.
6. Announce your. traffic
intentions on CTAF (122.7).

or shifting medians, the addi-
tion of sidewalks on the south
side of Center Road, reloca-
tion of existing utilities and
resurfacing, the intersection.
Clearing of the land and utili-
ty relocations on the Center
Road project began in Oc-
tober.
The county awarded a
$29.7 million contract in Sep-
tember to Prince Contracting
Co. Inc. of Palmetto for the
project. The contract calls for
substantial completion with-
in 540 days, but there would
be an incentive up to
$547,020 for early comple-'
tion.
Construction will be fund-
ed by the gasoline tax, South
County impact fees, the infra-


structure surtax (1-cent sales
tax), regional roadway funds,
ad valorem taxes and devel-
oper contributions.
For more information
about the project, contact the
Sarasota County Call Center
at 861-5000 and ask to speak
to Ben Chaney.

IMMEDIATE DENtURES
To avoid the problem of going toothless after the last teeth are
removed, dentists provide "immediate dentures". Two stages are
usually involved. First, the back teeth are removed and the more visible
front teeth are allowed to remain. After healing, impressions are taken
and models cast from them. The remaining front teeth are cut off the
model which is then recontoured to approximate the eventual shape of
your dental ridge. The denture is then fabricated on this altered model.
In the second stage, the remaining front teeth are extracted, and the
ridge is surgically reshaped, if necessary. As soon as this process is
completed, the denture is inserted. Covered and protected by the base,
the front sockets actually tend to heal faster and with less discomfort,
The new denture requires more adjustment time since some bones
shrinkage is inevitable. However, the advantage of coming home the
day of your extractions with a full set of dentures is obvious.

see-Chiles in three straight
games 25-18, 25-18 and
25-11 on Friday night at The
Lakeland Center.
Dana Dumas, the only
senior on the Venice team,
led the charge with a kill for
the first point of the match
and a kill for the final point
and the championship. She
had 18 kills, three blocks, four
digs and three aces for the
evening.
"I was trying to be con-
sistent," she said after the
match. "She was unstop-
pable," head coach Brian
Wheatley added.
"Nobody really expected
us to go this far," junior
Natalie Gaudreau, who had
eight kills, stated. "We had
nothing to loose. Second was
just never an option."
"I told the girls no one
was going to give us a pres-
ent. We had no room to sit
back," Wheatley noted.
No one on the team sat
back. Sophomore Michaela
Trimble and junior Marla
Cooke placed their serves
perfectly. The Lady Indians
had 17 aces while Chiles had
0. Michaela finished the night
with seven aces. In the final
game, Dumas, sophomore
Casey Taylor and Gaudreau
had two aces each. Taylor
battled at the net and finish-


ed the second game with a
kill. Sophomores Danielle
Witte and Julie Howlett dug
for the ball. Venice had no
serve receive errors.
Sophomore Casie Rich-
ards and junior Ashley Graf
helped give the team' seven
blocks and two block assists.
"Before the game I was
anxious and excited, but not
nervous," sophomore setter
Nicki Halbert said.
"I can't believe she's only
a sophomore," addedWheatl-
ey. "She sets like a senior."'
Nicki's dad, Gary Halbert,
is the freshman volleyball
coach and said Nicki started
playing volleyball with her
grandfather when she was
just a little girl.
The Chiles Timberwolves
battled back to the end. In the
second game, they tied the
score at 17-17 but Venice
scored four straight points.
"Our kids felt the pressure
out there and it showed at
the critical moments," said
Chiles coach Chad David.
On the Venice side. when-
ever there seemed even a
slight lapse, a kill by Dumas
or Gaudreau always served
to refocus the team. Coach
Wheatley knew exactly when
to call a time out and help
the girls make an adjustment
to their, play.
"Someday they are going
to mdakei'inovie about this,"
Wheatley said after the game.
Wheatley is known for his
inventive ideas for breaking
tension and motivating his
players. When asked about it,
an emotional coach said "You
didn't need anything to moti-
vate them. They are just plain
special."

The perfect storm
'Th ef


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


On paper, a 3-7 football
team usually has slim and
none chances of upsetting a
10-0 team.
On the field, it was a dif-.
ferent story Friday night at
Edison Stadium.
Venice High, the District 11
runnerup, dominated from
opening whistle to the final
tick on the clock in a 28-0
regional quarterfinal shocker
over District 12 champion
Fort Myers High.
Venice will take its 4-7
record and try to surprise
Largo in the Class 5A playoffs


next Friday. Fort Myers saw
its perfection and season
suddenly end.
"They were no .3-7 team,"
Green Wave coach Sammy
Sirianni said. "There was no
doubt about this. I give credit
to them. They're a physical
team. You always win it in the
trenches this time of year."
Venice had shown flashes
of brilliance during the sea-
son, but had trouble putting
four quarters together.
On Friday, the Indians
started and finished the deal.
Venice executed its ball-
control offense splendidly,
methodically marching down
the field all night.

And the defense only al-
lowed four first downs and
90 total yards.
Running back Tony
Charles was an effective
workhorse out of the veer,
running for 155 yards and
three touchdowns.
"The offensive line was
moving them back and
opening holes," said Charles,
the 6-1, 215-pounder. "We
played with emotion. I knew
we were better. We played
better competition."
The "0" line was powered
by co-captain Brad Ackles,
Kyle Poinsett, Cory ,Carter,
Isaiah, Carpenter, Robby
Nemecek, Josh Carpenter
and Mike Danski.
"We knew we could come
in here and beat them,"
Poinsett said. "All year, we've
been stopping ourselves
with turnovers and penalties.
This time we did it we
played four quarters. It's a
pretty good feeling."
Venice rushed the ball 59
times. Meanwhile, Fort Myers
had a total of 39 offensive
plays including four punts.
The Venice defense forced
the Wave to 1-2-3 punt on
the first series of the game.
The Indian offense marched
44 yards on 11 running plays
to open the scoring. Charles
scored the touchdown on a
one-yard run.
Venice was on the move
to score another touchdown
early in the second quarter,
but a fumble on the ex-
change was recovered by
Fort Myers at the 4-yard line.


Venice High football team puts it all together
for four quarters to shock previously
unbeaten Fort Myers in playoff opener.


The score was 14-0 at the
half, as Venice went 48 yards
on 12 plays for its second
touchdown late in the second
quarter. Charles scored from
two-yards out.
The Indians kept up the
intensity in the third quarter.
Fort Myers went for a first
down on a fourth and one
from its own 33. End Ray
Popp tackled Wave scatback
Jamaul Temple for a loss, giv-
'ing the "0" the ball deep in
Wave territory.
"We came out so fired up,"
said Popp. "When it's the
playoffs, it's a different game.
Everybody's 0 and 0. It's time


to git 'r done."
The defensive line fueled
by the play of Tosh Carpenter,
Mike Atamanchuk, Popp and
Danski grounded the Green
Wave's big two running attack
of Temple and Sergio Rivera.
Temple came into the game
with more than 1,000 yards.
He finished the night with 5
yards on 6 carries.
"We worked on Fort Myers
for two weeks," Carpenter
said. "We picked up the game
against Gulliver, but it helped
because they run the same
offense. We had to stop the

Lady Indians happy to run with best


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

For the first time in more
than a decade, Venice High
girls cross country got a
chance to nin with the state's
best.
The Lady Indians placed
18th out of 24 teams partici-
pating in Saturday's FHSAA
Class 3A Finals on the scenic
5K course located in the
rolling hills of Little Ever-
glades Ranch just outside of
Dade City.
While coach Brenda Clark
and her runners were hop-
ing to finish a little better,
they were happy to just be
there and run a respectable
race with the Sunshine State's'
elite.
"Our goal was to get here,"
said Lady Indian coach
Brenda Clark. "It's the first
time in 11 years. Most of the
girls finished where they were
supposed to. It was a good
year."P
Senior Stephanie Korszen
led the Lady Indian effort
with a 37th place finish. She
was clocked in 21 minutes, 19
seconds.


That was 3:19 behind' race
winner Kelly Parrish, an All-
American out of Ocala-
Vanguard.
"I wanted to finish better
than I did my freshman year,"
said Korszen, a cornerstone
of the program the past four
years. "I finished 32nd then.
I wanted to beat that. I had
a hard time at the start. I
was boxed in. I didn't get a
chance to run my race until
after the first mile."
The girl who has run sec-
ond to Korszen for most of
the year sophomore.
Chelsea Rose had even
more trouble with traffic.
She took a spill early in the
.race and ended up 86th in
the field of 173 runners with
a time bf 22:27.
"It was crowded," she
said. "I felt heels click about
four times. Then someone
pushed me down."
Rose estimated that she
lost at least 20 seconds be-
fore she could get back up to
speed.
"I feel bad about Chelsea,"
Clark said. "This is her first
time as a state qualifier and
this happens."


"Just being here made the
season special," said senior
Genna Jones, who was third
fastest of the Venice runners
and 110th in the field with a
time of 23:05. "I'm not happy
about my time, but I passed
girls at the end. I like a course
with hills."
Junior Erin McCullough
was 113rd in 23:42. Fighting
a cold, senior Alex Natiss
placed 143rd in 23:53. Senior
Katie Pfost was 151st in
24:03. Freshman Sarah Brit-
ton was 162nd in 25:12.
Satellite won the Class 3A
girls team title with three
runners in the top 10.
Clark thanked sponsors
Bressler Ice Cream, Marina
Delrey and Nokomis Citgo
for donating water during
the season.
With Rose, McCullough
and Britton coming back,
Venice hopes to return to
state in 2006.
Venice High had one in-
dividual running in the boys
Class 3A race. .Senior Kyle
Brunette ran a 17:52 which
placed him a respectable
56th out of the field of 182
runners.

Agape close to Venice Municipal Airport deal


The city's advisoryboard'signs off on a new lease
agreement and runway contracts.


BYGREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Agape Flights Inc. is anoth-
er step closer to finalizing its
lease at Venice Municipal
Airport. On Wednesday the
airport advisory board signed
off on a host of contracts that
make up the deal.
Agape Flights, a nonprofit
Christian ministry, is moving
its headquarters from Sara-
sota to Venice. It transports
volunteers and 90 tons of sup-
plies annually to ministries in
Haiti, Dominican Republic,
Bahamas, Honduras. Belize
and other Caribbean coun-
tries.
The board recommended
Venice City Council approve
two sublease agreements be-
tween Agape and .the tenants
it will replace Commack
Realty and Summa Holdings.
The subleases allow Com-
mack and Summa to remain
at their location for up to
another sLx months while
both seek new lodgings.
The board also signed off
on an estoppel certificate,
assuring Agape's financing
company that the lease is in
good standing with the city
and all rents are paid in full.
Approved also was an
amendment to the main lease
withAgape making it optional
to sell fuel. Boilerplate lan-
guage includes a provision
requiring tenants to provide
aviation fuel for retail sale.
The language was eliminated
because Agape doesn't intend
to sell fueL
Runways
The board also recom-
mended city council approve
five contracts between the
airport and MEA Group,
which provides infrastructure
services to the airport.
i Two of the contracts allow
MEA Group to begin work on.
the airport's two main run-
ways. The agreements detail
the scope and fees with MEA
Group to develop plans and
specifications TO rehabilitate
the runways.
The airport is working with
the Federal Aviation Admin-
i istration and Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation to
secure grants to pay for the
construction.
A third contract spells out
the scope and fee agreement
to, conduct non-destructive
testing of the runways once
they're repaved.
Another contract outlines
the scope and fees to inspect
airport T-hangars, the admin-
istration building and main-
tenance facility. The primary
emphasis will be to improve
survivability of T-hangars in
high winds. Special attention
will be given to hangar doors
and roofs.
"T-hangars provide protec-
,tion for our tenants' aircraft
and provides
a major
source of
income to the
airport,"

Fair officials to pitch plans to county


The Sarasota County Agricultural Fair Association
wants to upgrade fairgrounds. Sarasota County
could help, but is caught up in the politics of a
conference center.


BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS.
Fairgrounds officials have
patiently courted Sarasota
County and hoped for a mar-
riage of convenience that
could provide public financ-
ing for their proposed new
arena in exchange for a con-
*ference center site that would
satisfy downtown business
leaders.
While there may be too
many political variables for
the county commission and
fair board representatives to
grasp in one meeting, they
will begin a dialogue on the
afternoon of Nov. 16 that
could eventually lead to some
new community amenities.
On Oct. 26, commissioner
Shannon Staub argued it was
time for both
sides to put all
their cards on
the table and.
decide wheth-
er they should
become part-
ners in a major
undertaking,
or part com-
pany and wait Staub
for the politi-
cal winds to shift.
"The fair board wants to
talk about its plans," she said.
"They want to entertain-a dis-
cussion and see ifwe can sup-
port anything. I haven't seen
what they are proposing to
do, and only know what I've
read. I think we should meet
with them before the year
ends."


Commission chair Paul
Mercier saw no reason to
meet.
r"Why?" he
asked. "We
won't be able
to get any-
thing from
(Fair Board
President
Rory Martin)
except they
want money. Mercier
Frankly, he
should have started at the
second floor (in meetings
with county administrators)."
What's the plan?
The Sarasota County
Agricultural Fair Association
owns 65 acres of prime prop-
erty that fronts on the south
side of Fruitville Road just
east of Tuttle Avenue. It ac-
quired the sprawling parcel
from the county in pieces
over a 20-year period from
1947-67.
Every deed and legal con-
veyance specifies the associa-
tion will retain ownership so
long as it produces an annual
fair and promotes the coun-
ty's agricultural heritage. If it
fails to do so for a two-vear
period, ownership reverts to
the county
County Administrator Jim
Ley has made it clear he
thinks the fair is a three-week
event that should be relocat-
ed to publicly owned land
east of Interstate 75, and the
fair board would be better off
not running a year-round
business operation.


Whether his vision is
shared by a majority of the
county commissioners may
become clear at the Nov. 16
meeting, but all of them could
be long gone if the fair board
decides to hold its ground
and wait for a more favorable
political climate.
"I've seen visuals he '(Mar-
tin) showed the Republican
Party Exec-
utive Com-
mittee," com-
missioner
Nora Patter-
son said. "I'd
like to see a
business plan.
If we're going
to sell revenue
bonds and Patterson
help finance a
project, there needs to be a rev-
enue stream of income."
Taxing tourists
Commissioner Dalid Mills,
a fair board member, used to
provide regu-
lar updates on
plans to reno-
vate the fair-
grounds and
replaced Ro-
barts Arena
with a more
versatile facili-
ty that could
become a fo- Mills
cal point for
community events such as
high school graduations.
in recent months. Mills has
been relatively silent when it
comes to the project.
S"(N artin) has been after
me for sLx months to meet
with this commission," he
said. "I behieve a conference
center built by a hotel chain
at that location is a reason-
able idea."
Fair board leaders have


spent upwards of $250,000 in
recent years on consultants
with visionary plans that
include a new arena, exhibi-
tion facilities and in some
alternatives a hotel and
conference center that would
front on Fruitville Road.
What both fair board mem-
bers and elected officials have
come to realize is downtown
Sarasota land has become
scarce and very expensive. Just
how costly was evident when


recent plans for a conference
center near the Sarasota'
Bayfront were rejected by the
city commission.
Last year, Ley briefly ex-
plored a fairgrounds reloca-
tion with a fair board com-
mittee, but the idea was
politely rejected by members
who realize how central the
fairgrounds has become to
new development along
Fruitville Road corridor.:
The offer followed an in-


tense year of fair board delib-
erations about a $56 million
consultant's plan to upgrade
the fairgrounds, a concept
that has since been scaled
back by about to about $36
million. But it lacks a financ-
ing package.
If it cooperates, the county
commission could increase
the 3 percent tourist tax by 1
or 2 percent to help finance a
combined conference center
and arena at the fairgrounds.

own business for eight.years.
Brown's brother and sister-in-
law have relocated to North Port
to be a part of Blinds Galore and
More. She offers a wide variety of
verticals, faux wood, horizontals,
plantation shutters, silhouettes,
duettes, vertiglides, roman
shades, woven wood shades,
custom draperies, top treat-
ments, bedding ensembles and
cornices.
Products are priced 25 percent
to 40 percent below retail. She
offers many discounted brands
names such as Hunter Douglas,
Graber, Vista and Comfortex.
Brown also provides free
estimates and installation, as
well as weekend and evening
appointments. Her husband
works as one of the installers and
they are ready to install window
treatments nights and weekends.


Brown enjoys being a color
specialist, helping customers
coordinate window treatments
with furnishings and wall colors.
In her new location she plans
to offer decorating accessories
such as small furniture items,
tables, stands, bars, pictures,
room furnishings, candles,
mirrors, silk plants, decorative
statue, custom bedding, and all
kinds of household items.
Brown wanted to get in on the
front end of a growth cycle. "I
moved to North Port because of
the growth taking place there,
similar to what I saw in Orlando
20 years ago. I hope my business
will grow with my new commu-
nity and give me another
wonderful 25 years in a business
I love," Brown said.

FEATURES EDITOR
S" :ide-facing garage doors add curb
appeal to the Royale Cambridge
model home built by Thompson
Custom Homes in the mainte-
nance-free homes area of Boca
Royale Golf & Country Club in Englewood..
S Decorative tiling denotes the entrance area
4 of the two-bedroom, two- and one-half-bath,
great-room home. A den between the master
and second bedroom could easily become a
third bedroom. Casual dining can take place
L- in the breakfast area of the kitchen, on the
lanai or even at the kitchen counter, while a
separate dining room at the front of the house
S .. offers space for more formal occasions.
An optional summer kitchen adds to the
usefulness of the lanai/pool area, which enjoys a preserve
view, as does the adjacent master bedroom.
The master suite features, in addition to a 10-foot tray
ceiling in the'14-by-15-foot bedroom, a largewyvalk-in closet,
smaller closet, separate linen closet and master bath with
separate tub and walk-in shower, plus separate-but-equal
vanity areas and closeted toilet area.
Just off the great room, between the kitchen and the
utility/laundry room is a wet bar area that, in the model,
includes a built-in wine cellar and separate ice-maker.
Tile flooring extends throughout the house, with the excep-
tion of the bedrooms and den and there are granite counters
in bathrooms, wet bar area and in the kitchen.
Residents in Boca Royale's maintenance-free area pay a
quarterly fee that covers exterior maintenance, including
landscaping services.
Angled guest parking is clustered in the islands dividing the
road to be convenient for guests.
Home and lot prices range upwards from nearly $600,000
including house, lot, pool, paver driveways and items such as
granite counters that might be considered upgrades in other
developments.
There are four builders at Boca Royale Golf & Country Club,
Thompson, Pruitt, Arthur Rutenberg and Lee Wetherington.
Each has one or more models within the gated community.
Models are generally open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily and
from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.
The dining room in the clubhouse is open to the public and
membership in the golf club is open to those living outside the
community, as well as to home owners. With less than 300
golfing members, the course is never crowded.
For more information on the homes and the community, call
Herbert G. Furniss, director of sales, at (941)474-5525 or 1-800-
348-4554.
For more information on becoming a golf or tennis member
of the Boca Royale Club, call Atty Moore, the club's membership
director at (941) 475-6464, Ext. 2.


The Royale Cambridge model home at Boca Royale Golf &
Country Club in Englewood is primed for entertaining.
