Accused child molester lames Lamotte Sr.

him Friday.
A hearing to dismiss sexual banery charges
against the former Venice High School swirn
coach is scheduled to be held at 1:30 p.m. in
front of Sarasota County Circuit Judge Andrew
D. Owens.
"His (Lalorte'sI side went fishing for a reso-
lution that would keep him out of jail," a source
close to the case said, "but the state isn't inter-
ested in cutting him any slack."
LaMorte's trial is scheduled for Dec. 5.
iDepending on the length of the Joseph
Smith death penalty deliberations. Owens may
be replaced in the LaNlorte hearing Friday.
Owens presided over the trial that found Smith
guilty of murdering 11-year old Carlie Brucia.
He also is presiding in the death penalty phase, i
LaMlorte's lawyers will argue that the four-
year statute of limitations on the crimes has run
out, according to the source; therefore. LaUlorte
cannot be tried.
Lalorte, 63, is charged widi two counts of
sexual battery (one against each accuser') and
fondling/lew-d and lascivious act in the pres-
ence of a child under 16 years old. The alleged
acts happened more than 25 years ago.

Damage


blamed on


skateboarders

The city puts a dollar sign on repairs
at two parks just weeks before a
council vote to ban the activity from
certain parks.

BYJJ.ANDREWS
;ASSISTANT EDITOR
There have been grumbling and complaints
by residents for months about how skateboard-
ers are damaging public park property. I
Now the city has put a price tag on it-
$2,500.
City. Manager Marty Black said Tuesday that
damages at the Centennial Park interactive
children's fountain, which is still being con-
structed, and West Blalock Park's new gazebo
were caused by skateboarders.
Black went on to point out an "altercation"
between two groups of skateboarders Mbnday
afternoon along Miami Avenue near Island
Plaza. Venice police were called to the scene,
but the groups had dispersed by the time offi-
cers arrived and no arrests were made.
All of thiscomes two weeks before city coun-
cil has a tentative vote on new parks and recre-
ation rules that would effectively ban skate-
boarding, bicyclists and in-line skaters from
Centennial and West Blalock parks.
"There's just a few (skateboarders) causing
problems,". Black said. "Unfortunately, they
haven't self-regulated. It's .reached the point
.where we have to take action."
New rules?
Talk of regulating skateboarders within city
limits caused a whirlwind of controversy this
summer. Council member Rick Tacy suggested
skaters be banned from certain areas on Venice
island, and then city hall was flooded with
accusations the town was against young peo-
ple.;
A number of residents expressed support for
Tacy's ideas to restrict skateboarding down-
town, along U.S. 41 Business, near the public
library and at Venice BeachN though not as
many as expressed concern about a ban.
However, only bans at the city parks of
Centennial and Blalock have actually been pro-

Tower time ticking away

From the Nov. 29, 1997, Venice Gondolier Sun.


BY DOUGLAS A. BOLDUC
STAFF WRITER

The city ofVenice has 60 days
to get its telecommunications
tower ordinance finished, or it
could face litigation.
City attorney Bob Ander-
son made that point Tuesday
when the Venice City Council
was considering extending a
six-month moratorium on,
the structures another two'
months.
"I think as long as we are
reasonably pursing the adop-
tion of a regulatory ordi-
nance, we're OK," Anderson
said "But let's not draw this
out any longer, because we
might run into some legal
problems."
Anderson said he's re-
ceived pages of legal informa-
tion from one provider who
questioned whether a mora-
torium could last longer than
six months.
The council approved the
six-month freeze, June 24.
Growth management di-
rector Med Kopczynski said
the uniqueness of the ordi-
nance has slowed its creation.
"It's not an easy ordinance
to create," Kopczynski said.
"There's awful lot of debate as
far as what can be done, what
should be done."
The Federal, Communica-
tions Commission, service
providers, municipalities and
attorneys from: all sides are
playing a role in the place-
ment issue,
Kopczynski ,said Venice's
unfinished ordinance is
based on a draft done by the
ity of Sarasota.
Some of the draft's current
goals are to control height,
location, appearance and the
proximity to residential areas.
Towers readily visible to
residential developments are

not allowed above 75 feet if
they are free standing and
can't go above 15 feet if they're
put on top of an existing
building. Free-standing tow-
.ers outside residential view
can be 200 feet.
A tower 161 to 200 feet
must have space for at least
three users, while a minimum
of two users must be accom-
modated on a tower 160 or
less. Applicants must notify
other potential users space is
available on on their towers.
Warning notices are the
only signs allowed on the
towers. Aviation lights are the
only illumination allowed.,
To even be considered for a
tower an applicant most
prove to the planning com-
missiori there are no other
existing structures its .tower
could go on.
The ability to blend into
the surrounding environ-
ment and to keep people
from climbing the tower also
are included in the draft.
Kopczynski said the loca-
tion of the towers will be reg-
ulated by the city zoning
code. He said no zoning areas
have been determined so far.

Today says goodbye and

It was a record breaker.
Costliest hurricane ever:

And more.
Now it's over, right? '
Last year on this date,
Hurricane Otto formed. Two '
years ago, Odette and Peter '

Lightning strikes


Anderson Center


STAFF REPORT


Lightning struck the
Robert L. Anderson Admini-
stration Center Tuesday mor-
ning, dislodging roof tilds and
briefly disrupting Sarasota
County government's phone
service and computer access.
The strike occurred
around 8 a.m., according to
county spokesman Martin
Haire.
"Some tiles were dislodged
on one corner of the roof,"
Haire said. "Nothing major."
Haire said no one was hurt
and the administration build-
ing's phone service was
restored within a few hours.
"Everything's A-OK now,"


Haire said.
He added that Tuesday's
roof damage was "nothing"
compared 'to March 2004,
when one-third of the roof
collapsed in county, commis-
sion chambers.
The collapse forced county
officials to close the entire
building for a day and relo-
cate the scheduled county
commission meeting to the
County Administration Cen-
ter in Sarasota.
A $2 million renovation of
the building was completed
in 2002.

Sanders' contract buyout finalized


The Student Leadership Academy in Venice will
pay its founding principal $75,000 in return for
dropping a lawsuit seeking more than $500,000 in
damages.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER
A publicly funded charter
school has agreed to a
$75,000 contract buyout.
A lawsuit filed by Nancy
Sanders, founder of the mid-
die school on Field Avenue
East in Venice, was dismissed
after both parties agreed to
the payoff and a promise to
observe "good behavior."
The seven-page document
was released Monday by SIA.
In addition, Sanders
promised not to seek employ-


ment at the school, in the
future or" encourage or influ-
ence any other individual to
file a lawsuit."
Sanders was seeking the
buyout of her five-year con-
tract, estimated at $500,000.
Sanders' contract called for
an annual salary of $75,000,
plus retirement, leave and
other benefits not to exceed,
40 percent of the salary, plus
six days for personal leave.
"I got everything I want-
ed," Sanders told the Sun
Gondolier a week ago. Not
everything is in the agree-


ment, she added.
The agreement is contin-
gent upon all parties involved
abiding by a nondisclosure
clause that requires them to
keep the terms confidential.
Sanders. filed the lawsuit
against SIA in 2004 after she
was released by SLA's board of
directors following a brief
medical leave. School admin-
istrators and its governing
board said they found finan-
cial irregularities that resulted
in an overdraft by the charter
school, though no, checks
bounced because she cov-
ered the shortfall. Sanders
sued the school in January for
breach of contract.
Bylaw, school principals or
a superintendent who is hired
by the school district cannot
enter into a contract for longer


than three years. That's
designed, in part, to protect the
public from expensive buyouts.
Privately run but publicly
funded charter schools, how-
ever, are not held to the same
standard. There are no
statutes limiting the length of
a contract between a school
principal and a charter
school. Instead, there is a
limit on the length of a con-
tract that may be entered into
between a chatter school and
the school district.
Sarasota County charter
school contacts typically run
five years, but can be extend-
ed to 10 years. The contract
between SLA and the school
district runs five years.

Schools offer holiday hope for Louisiana students


STAFF REPORT


The Plaquemines Parish
public school situation .is des-
perate.
This small parish in Belle
Chasse, La., just south of New
Orleans, was in the direct
path of two of the powerful
hurricanes to hit the United
States this year Katrina and
Rita. The community was
nearly destroyed by a 34-foot
tidal wave and Category 4
hurricane winds.
Six of the district's nine
schools were decimated.
Sarasoia County Public
Schools, Manatee County


Public Schools, the Education
Foundation of fSarasota
County' and the Education
Foundation of Manatee
County are teaming up to
help Plaquemines Parish
keep its school bells ringing
by attempting to raise enough
funds to pay two teachers'
salaries for the remainder of
the school year.
Each district has commit-
ted to raising $17,500. The
fundraising campaign began
Nov. 28 and ends Dec. 16.
Superintendents Dr. Gary
Norris, of Sarasota, and Dr.
Roger Dearing, of Manatee,
greatly sympathize with their


colleagues' plight and hope
that the funds raised will con-
tribute to keeping children in
school and learning.
Plaquemines Parish public
schools originally enrolled
5,200 students and had an
employee base of 800.
Following the two hurricanes,
the school district on Oct. 17
opened three of its least-
damaged schools to educate
3,000 returning students,
some of whom live in two
nearby parishes.
To house half of its staff who
lost their homes, the school dis-
trict purchased FEMA trailers,
with the hope it will be reim-


bursed in the future.
With limited businesses
and residences remaining,
Plaquemines. Parish School
Board cannot collect sales tax
or property tax to pay for the
operation of its schools.
According. to James C.
Hoyle, the superintendent of
Plaquemines Parish Public
Schools, "Our tax base is basi-
cally gone; therefore, our
budget is dangerously low. In
an attempt to salvage a night-
marish situation, we are ask-
ing other districts to sponsor
one, annual salary for a
Plaquemines Parish educa-
tor."

Thaxton: Lobby Legislature on impact fees


BYSHELLYJANKE
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Jon Thaxton is urging
local residents to lobby the
Florida Legislature in re-
sponse to what he believes is
the dismantling of much-
needed impact fees in
Southwest Florida counties.
As part of the Lemon Bay.


Conservancy
lecture series,
Thaxton |.
spoke to ;
members j
about region-
al growth and
its environ-
mental impli-
cations at Thaxtor
Cedar Point
Environmental Center.


Thaxton said that because
growth management in
Southwest Florida has failed
and infrastructure deficits
abound, the Legislature is
considering taking over
county comprehensive plans.
"The state Legislature
wants to take them over
because the counties have
botched them up," he said.
Thaxton said the best way


to raise revenue and prevent
infrastructure deficits is for
the people causing the needs
to pay impact fees.
"If impact fees were cover-
ing costs, we would not be
having these deficits," Thax-
ton said.
Unfortunately, the state
Legislature has its eyes on the
future of impact fees, too,
Thaxton said.


"The Legislature wants to
shift the impact fees onto
your property taxes and dis-
mantle the impact fees," he
said.
Thaxton urged Conserv-
ancy members to butt heads
with special interest groups
and lobbyists he says are con-
trolling the Legislature.
"Tell your legislators that
impact fees need to pay a


larger fare," Thaxton said.
"Tell your Senate and the
House representatives in Tal-
lahassee to stay away from
the impact fees."

servancy news, the organiza-

Gaona, and balance artist ex-
traordinare Carl Jung were on
hand to support the Berosinis'
,newest endeavor. All were
famous circus stars inthe 1950s
and 1960s, performing with,
among others, Ringling Bros.
and Barnum & Bailey, Berosini
said.
Although the Bengal tiger
is gone, an air of circus histo-
ry lingers like the smell of


exotic plants that pepper the
nursery.
Line keeps a book of circus
photos on hand and loves to
reminisce about their perfor-
mance days. Ask her about it
and you will no doubt be
entertained.
Relax and enjoy
The Berosinis greet every-
one with an infectious smile


that puts you at ease while
walking the nursery grounds.
"Our goal is to make the
nursery a nice place to visit,"
Line said. "We don't follow
people around and pressure
them. We want people to
come in and relax and explore
the plants and exotics. And
just have fun."
The Berosinis got their
green thumb when they be-


gan raising plants as a hobby
in Tampa after they retired
from the circus 15 years ago.
They opened a retail palm
nursery in Myakka City sell-
ing Phoenix palms, and some
queen palms.
Pomello Park Nursery in
Venice has literally thousands
of exotic plants for sale,
including orchids, bromeli-
ads, vines, pony tail palms, air


plants, carnivorous plants,
ferns, rare palms and beauti-,
ful hanging baskets.
Hours are Monday through
Saturday 9:30 a.m-6 p.m., and
Sunday noon-6 p.m.
The hours coincide with
those of The Last Straw, oper-
ated by Norman and Margie
Riggle, next door at 1250 U.S.
41 Bypass.
Together, they form a


"home and garden show,"
Line says.
"We are so honored to be
part of The Last Straw. They
are the-nicest people in the
world," Berosini said.

LAMORTE fromPagelA


Lamorte has pleaded not
guilty.
He is free on a $100,000
bond. He turned himself into
authorities June 9. LaMorte's
original bond was $1 million.
End run
Prosecutors are attempt-
ing an end-run around the
limitations statutes.


The statute of limitations
in a criminal case is the time
period within which the state
must begin a prosecution.
Florida Statute 715.15(b)
states that if the period
(statute of limitations) pre-
scribed ... has expired, a.
prosecution may neverthe-
less be commenced for: 'Any
offense based upon miscon-


duct in office by a public offi-
cer or employee at any time
when the defendant is in
public office or employment,
within two years from the
time he or she leaves public
office or employment...."
Attorneys not involved
with the case have said the
prosecutor would have been
foolish not to use 715.15,


arguing that, as a teacher,
Lamorte was a public officer.
As one said earlier, "It was
either that or not prosecute
the case. What did they have
to lose?"
Come on down
The allegations, surfaced
earlier this year after five
men, now adults, came for-


ward and gave statements to
police.
LaMorte, according to in-
vestigators' reports, made
"some admissions" 'and
"apologized" to the alleged
victims.
The admissions reportedly
came when a victim's friend
consented to wear a "wire"
and confront LaMorte. The


conversation took place at a
local park earlier this year and
was monitored by investiga-
tors.
Each charge carries a
prison term of up to 15 years.

behind the drinking water
plant and next to the Hatchett
Creek Bridge.
Questions of blame, re-
sponsibility and who gets
stuck with the check are over,
according to Mitchell. The
march will be a demonstra-
tion of community solidarity.
"I'm so happy. It's been a
long, long period of time," an
excited Mitchell said Tuesday
as he led a tour of the nearly
complete church.
"It's been almost three
,years, so there's been a very
bad taste with all this. ... I
don't want people to think we
hate the city. We're all broth-
ers. I want everyone to under-
stand we're all in this togeth-
er."
The church reopening cer-
emony starts at 1 p.m.
Saturday at Venice City Hall,
401 W Venice Ave, Mayor
Dean Calamaras, members of
the church's congregation
and other participants will
walk to the church.
But this is only a ceremoni-
al opening. Church members
will spend their third consec-
utive Christmas under some-
one else's roof. Renovation
work will not be completed
until the first or second week
of January.
Mitchell was asked if he
had any extra prayers to make
it in by Christmas. Attend-
ance has dwindled to only
about 25-30 members per
week, but Mitchell believes it


will return to 90 or more at
the Warfield Avenue location.
"We've waited almost three
years," Mitchell said. "Why
push it?
"Don't be impatient. Let it
be in God's time, and it'll all
work out."
One rainy day
Venice's utility department
was to blame when heavy
rains June 22 forced raw
sewage to back up into the
church pipes and soak nearly
every inch of the church. It
spewed out of the plumbing
fixtures, and it took city work-
ers 10 hours to contain the
problem, according to city
reports.
New pumps have been
installed at the lift station 100
feet away to prevent that from
happening again, according
to Utilities Manager Chris
Sharek.
State laws limited city lia-
bility to only $100,000. Clean-
up costs alone topped that
amount, and then there were
relocation costs, utility bill
costs and questions of prop-
erly filing insurance claims.
Venice did not consider
waiving the $100,000 cap for
liability because it would put
the city's insurance coverage
at risk. Alan Bullock, with the
city's risk management de-
partment, said "goodwill pay-
ments" ,beyond what state
laws require would make
companies hesitant to insure

the city.
The total bill is expected to
come in at $250,000, once
expansion and renovations
are figured in, Mitchell said.
Other churches and busi-
nesses pitched in to help.
Waterford Companies con-
tractors and engineers donat-
ed services to obtain permits
and :designs, and other
churches offered support
through volunteers and do-
nations. The church took out
a loan of about $80,000 to
cover the remaining costs.
All of this makes Mitchell,
who was born in 1961 and
grew up several blocks from
the church, proud of his
hometown.
That's also why it's impor-
tant to have this march
Saturday.
"This is our saying of
appreciation," Mitchell said.
"This is not about Union
Baptist Church. It's about all
of Venice, the community."
Historical problems
Long known as a predomi-
nantly black church, Union
Missionary Baptist Church
has dealt with racism, segre-
gation, being hidden behind
the city's drinking water plant
and shaking the misconcep-
tion it is a "black church" for
residents at Grove Terrace
Apartments, the city's only
public housing complex.
Mitchell points to how 90
percent of his congregation


comes from outside of the
Grove Terrace neighborhood
and many of his members are
white.
"This is riot a black
church," Mitchell said. "This
is God's church. We welcome
everyone here. ... The church
of God consists of all races.
The word of God has no
color."
The church's roots do
extend back to when it was
only for black people, as is
shown in a city ordinance
passed Feb. 18, 1947. The
northern side of East Venice
Avenue between the
Intracoastal Waterway and
U.S. 41 Bypass was designat-
ed as "a separate residential
district in which only negroes
may reside," according to
Venice Ordinance No. 204,
and the rest of the city was a
"residential district in which
only white persons may
reside."
Basically, this is the area
where the drinking water
plant, fire station public
housing complex and the
church all are today.
Punishment was a $50 fine for
every day anyone violated the
ordinance.
U.S. Supreme Court deci-
sions in the 1960s repealed
these types of ordinances, but
Union Missionary Baptist
Church was built in 1951,'
while the local law 'was in
affect.

Changing region
Those roots remain impor-
tant today, but not just
because of skin color, accord-
ing to Mitchell. The church is
needed to reach out and
interact with the community.
Fifty years ago, only black
residents could live around
the church. Thirty years ago,
concrete plants, a fire station
and a drinking water plant
were built around the church.
Speculation is for high-priced
condominiums, restaurants
and stores to be there 10 years
from now.
Union Missionary Baptist
Church also will be there,
continuing the vision of the
late Pastor James C. Sims Sr.
who died Feb. 26,2005, before
seeing his beloved church of
46 years reopen. Sims passed
away at the age of 83, less
than a week after being hon-
ored by the Venice Area
Historical Society for his con-
tributions to the area as a
community leader.
Mitchell grew up under


Sims' spiritual guidance, and
was his assistant pastor.
Sims did not move on to
heaven without -knowing
Union Missionary Baptist
Church would be fixed. Many
of the long-standing prob-
lems started to disappear in
February, weeks before he
passed, Miichell said.
As Mitchell said earlier this
year, 'All those people moving
into condominiums need
churches, too," which is why
congregation members have
turned down every develop-
er's deal offered to them.
"When the whole thing
started coming together (in
February), all he (Sims) could
do was smile," Mitchell said.
"He saw the vision, I know he
did. He had nothing but joy to
see this church filled ... I'm
going to keep the dream alive,
it's serving /as a light to the
people."

Postal service carriers prepare for busy holiday


BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
NORTH PORT EDITOR

If you mail colorful green
or red Christmas card en-
velopes, expect a small delay
in delivery.
Green and red envelopes
must be handsorted instead
of running through the.stan-
dard mail sorting machine.
There are several outlets
offering mailing and packag-
ing services.
Like other postal outlets,
the local post office staff is
advising local residents to
mail holiday cards, letters and
packages early.
Last year, thousands of
cards and hundreds of pack-
ages were mailed just days
after Thanksgiving.
It's never too early to mail
holiday packages, according
to the United States Post

posed.
,City Attorney Bob Ander-
son is still reviewing the pro-
posed changes to laws regu-
lating city parks. Aside from
the skateboard bans, the new
park, laws also would make
these changes:
Venetian Waterway Park
rules would be amended to
allow skateboarding, in-line
skating, bicycles, Segways
and dogs along the linear
parkway. Current rules pro-
hibit those activities.
Nine city parks would
come, under a midnight-to-6
a.m. closing restriction. Those
park locations include Bro-
hard (except for the fishing
pier), Chuck Reiter, Graser,
Hecksher, Humphris (except
for those using North Jetty for
fishing), Venice Beach, Pa-
triots, Service Club and Well-


Office, especially to military,
overseas and international
addresses.
To ensure loved ones will
receive gifts in a timely fash-
ion, always write the correct
zip code clearly, and never
bundle letters with yarn, sta-
ples, paper clips, rubber
bands or string.
Staples can pierce the car-
riers and clerks, said a cus-
tomer service representative.
Staples can also get caught
in the machines and tear the
envelope open.
If using colorful, festive
envelopes, write the address
in large letters with a black or
blue pen. White envelopes are
preferred by the post office.
The post office has a
nationwide toll-free number
for residents to call in starts
and stops of their mail and
find out zip codes.


"It's reached the
point where we have
to take action."
City manager
Marty Black, on dam-
age caused by
skateboarders


field.
Rules prohibiting the
throwing of objects such as
Frisbees and balls could be
amended in some parks to
allow ball tossing "where
appropriate."' Most of these
suggested changes would
only apply until a park
becomes crowded during an
* event.


Those who reuse boxes
when mailing gifts should
cover existing UPC codes or
old addresses.
A mailing address should
be inserted into the box being
sent as well as being on the
box itself, postal workers say.
Customers should also
make sure they have the
correct postage on over-
sized envelopes and pack-
ages, or they may not arrive
on time.
If for some reason a pack-
age hits the dead-letter bin,
the post office can send it out
if there is an address inside
the box.
Monday and Tuesdays are
often bad days to go to the
post office without experi-
encing a high volume of other,
.customers. Mid-afternoon is
usually a slower period. The
best time to go to the post


The tally
As for damage being
blamed on skateboarders, the
handrails at the West Blalock
Park gazebo had to be
repaired twice, for a total of
$2,000, according to the city.z
The $500 in damage to the
interactive fountain down-
town was mostly to the sur-
face and bench seating areas.
The fountain is being
designed to resist skateboard
damage, but riders skated on
the surface before all of the pro-
tective coatings were in place.
"You have to design every-
thing any more to keep peo-
ple from tearing it up," Venice
spokeswoman Pam Johnson
said. "It's really wrong to have
to do that." ,

PACKAGE IT RIGHT
Did you follow the directions for mailing your cards and letters?
* Have the correct postage for oversized envelopes.
* Do not bundle cards with yarn, staples, paper clips, string or the like.
* If reusing a box, cover all UPC codes and old addresses.
* A mailing address should be inserted into the box being sent as well as appearing on the box itself.
* Mail cards, letters and packages out early.

QUICK TIPS FOR PACKING AND SHIPPING
* Don't cover your package in any sort of paper overwrap.
* If you must use paper overwrap of any kind, you must cover every inch of the overwrap surface with
an approved tape. There are no exceptions to this rule. Also, at some shipping or packaging shops,
there may be a surcharge if the staff has to provide tape for you to make your box shippable or has to
take the time to tape up the box. This can be time consuming.
* Don't use string or masking, Scotch, cellophane, electrical or duct.tape.
* Instead, use a strong tape 2 inches or more in width such as these approved types of tape:
pressure-sensitive plastic tape, nylon-reinforced tape, water-activated tape, clear packing tape, or
brown packing tape.
- UPS & FedEx won't deliver to a P.O. Box, APO or FPO, only to a physical address.


office is between 10 a.m. and
3 p.m. Other times are often
considered rush-hour for
working residents.
"We can help people if they
have a difficult time packag-
ing up their gifts," said Oscar


Guerrero, the owner of an
area shipping center. "People
need to remember to put
stuffing in their- packages,
especially if they are fragile.
Items get stacked up when
they are sent from one place


to another. The proper pack-
ing helps gifts arrive more
safely."

OUR VIEW



Sarasota County has a dog in phosphate battle


S arasota County has given limited finan-
cial support to Charlotte County's legal
battle to protect the Peace River from
the impacts of phosphate mining. Now,
Sarasota and Manatee counties have their
, own fight on their hands.
The battle front has moved north to
Wingate Creek and the Myakka River, an
Outstanding Florida Waterway. The Florida
Department of Environmental Protection
has issued a permit to renew the Wingate
Creek Mine surface-water discharges directly
into Johnson Creek and then into Wingate
Creek, a tributary of the Myakka River.
Manasota-88, an environmental group
based in Sarasota County, covered the issue
recently in its newsletter. According to the
group, the Wingate Creek Mine comprises


3,110 acres 1,404 of which will be mined
for phosphate by Mosaic Fertilizer, the same
group that plans to mine along Horse Creek
and the Ppace River.
Mining along Wingate Creek brings up the
same questions as Charlotte County has
about Horse Creek and the Peace River.
The Wingate mine is located within the
watersheds of the Myakka River and the East
Fork of the Manatee River. The mine was first
permitted in 1975. Mining operations ceased
in the 1990s and the property was in bank-
ruptcy court from 2001 to 2004.
The mine is operating again today -
reportedly 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Just downstream from this mine, Wingate
Creek flows through the Wingate Creek state
park a portion of which has been desig-


nated as an Outstanding Florida Waterway.
The Myakka River is designated a Wild and
Scenic River.
We do not understand how the FDEP can
continue to issue mining permits on the bor-
ders of these types of waterways. The OFW
and Wild and Scenic designations were
earned, and they are designations that are
supposed to protect these waterways from
any potential dangers or pollution.
The Upper Myakka River, according to
Manasota-88, has already been identified as
impaired for nutrients, coliforms, dissolved
oxygen and total suspended solids. The Lower
Myakka is impaired for nutrients and mercury.
Charlotte County has led the campaign to
put limitations on phosphate mining in the
Peace River basin. Now, Sarasota and Man-


atee counties must decide if they share that
kind of passion.
We believe there is an opportunity to force
legislation that will protect our waterways.
We do not advocate shutting down the
phosphate industry in Florida. We do believe
the political and financial clout of heavily
populated Sarasota and Manatee counties
could reinforce the arguments Charlotte
County is trying to make in the state Legis-
lature. The answer to protecting our waters
and allowing the phosphate industry to

The tale of




two Venices


ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST


The city of Venice has re-
turned the petition by J&J
Homes Inc. oh behalf of Carib-
bean Bay Club LLC to establish
the Bella Venetia Community
Development District because
the applicant submitted by
Jeffrey A. Boone, agent, and
Stephen J. Zucker of Orlando,
attorney for the petitioner, did
not follow the appropriate
sequence for submittaL
According to a city employ-
ee familiar with the city's deci-
sion, the proper procedure
would be to secure zoning
approval, among other steps,
before submitting the request
for a community develop-
ment district, which is essen-
tially a financing mechanism.
The city is sending a letter
to the applicants providing
that information. The sub-
mission was called a "drop
and dump" that is, there
were no discussions with city
officials before the petition
was left with the city.
According to the petition,
Bella Venetia, on Knights Trail
Road north of Laurel Road, is
designed for about 1,919 resi-
dential units, 120 hotel rooms,
120 condo-hotel units and
113,000 square feet of retail
space.
City council has approved
a number of sites in the area
for the maximum density
allowed underVenice's zoning
code, which uses the term
"medium density." In all,
about 6,000-7,000 units could
be developed on these several
sites which have different
ownerships.
I personally see this kind of
development. as a sort of ,
blight a mass of concrete
boxes of several different
types and sizes, ordinarily
clustered in a sterile commu-
nity, sometimes gated, which
could be located in virtually
any state, identifiable only by
regional plantings and some
architectural designs. I have
seen similar developments
sprawling over acres in
Virginia, the Carolinas, Geor-
gia and elsewhere.
There is a reasonable re-
buttal to my view, and that is
that people buy these homes
and seemingly enjoy them.
The Venetian Golf & River
Club is an example.
I have had the opportunity
to visit in several lovely homes
there, but my feeling in dri-


ving into and through it is that
I could be anywhere. It is the
anti-Venice to me.
When citizens in the
EnvisionVenice planning ses-
sions described what they
liked about the city and what
they wanted to strengthen
and protect, it was not maxi-
mum density, expensive
housing. It was the downtown
area, the small scale; the
"small-town" feel as well as
the natural attractions of the
beaches and parks.
People favored mixed-use
commercial and xesidpntial
uses, especially-in the down-
town area, thinking particularly
of apartments on second floors
within walking distance of
stores, restaurants and such.
The argument can be made
that the Knights Trail area, 5 or
so miles east of downtown,
"does not matter to that con-
cept of Venice." And city plan-
ners have told me they feel an
obligation to provide for
growth some of that to build
tax-base, obviously.
Off the record, however,
they too do not delight in the
prospect of the huge tract
housing projects, and hope to
keep them from being isolat-
ed, gated enclaves by linking
them with roads and walk-
ways, perhaps green spaces.
Whether that happens will
depend a good deal on what
kind of policy is developed by
council and the planning
commission.
What I think is almost cer-
tain to occur and this
requires little insight on my
part, just looking at the
descriptions of future projects
already in the works is that
we will have two Venices: one
the downtown that we value
so highly, the other a huge
cluster of homes and condo-
miniums around shopping
centers, motion picture the-
aters and other- commercial
development.
There is still time for coun-
cil to try to bring reason to this
process and make this area a
livable part of the city with
many natural attractions.
Everything does not have
to be approved for maximum
density, even though the
long-range plan calls for that.
Future zoning and site
development plans can re-
duce scale and massing and
build in positive land-use fea-
tures.
Council may look to its plan-
ners and consultants to pre-
serve and enhance the natural
environment, creating parks
and green spaces and develop-
ing a model of smart growth,
which while not "downtown"
Venice, will be a complemen-
tary part of the city- an asset,
not a blight
Even if it is a'blight con-
sumers will accept, looking at

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Why isn't the state getting involved?


Editor:
Thank you, Gondolier Sun, for arranging the forum on red
tide.
It was gratifying to learn that so many different groups are
already involved with detecting, monitoring, studying, educat-
ing and informing about red tide.
Considering the. gravity of the problem, and the obvious
damaging impact red tide has on Florida's economy, it is aston-
ishing that our state's government has done nothing to support
Mr. Rigby's inventions.
Mr. Rigby has developed both a formula already proven to
kill red tide, and the equipment needed to apply it. All that is
needed now is a contract between Mr. Rigby and the state, and
funding for any further testing the state might require and for
the application of the formula.
If the Florida citrus industry was able to move the state to
test and remove diseased citrus trees throughout the state in
order to eradicate citrus canker, then surely the tourist, fishing,
real estate, construction and health care industries together
with "we the people" can muster the clout to move the state
into action on red tide.
Contact our congressmen and state officials now to let them
know that red tide is a high priority. The life and value of our
community are at stake.

Prepare today for future Thanksgivings


BY BOB BOWDEN
STAFF WRITER

Half-full or half-empty?
How did you view Thanks-
giving 2005?
I understand if you're de-
pressed this year.
I understand, because
newspaper work almost de-
mands that writers focus on
the worst that can happen.
Bad stuff makes news; news
focuses on topics we must
correct or pay the price of ig-
norance or neglect.
I spend much of my spare
time reading of potential dis-
asters, some so serious that
our very existence would be
in jeopardy.
But I'm a half-full person.
When I look at the Big Picture,
as we all should each
Thanksgiving, I cannot imag-
ine another time in history
when life was better, when
the future was brighter.
Make no mistake, however.
Our choices now seem espe-
cially challenging, but we are
uniquely prepared to resolve
them. Resolve them we must.
Consider the major
threats:
A looming flu epidemic.
Yes, bird flu is a threat, but we


have resources, today to
understand disease, to quar-
antine an infected popula-
tion, to treat flu with anti-
virals, to prepare vaccines
that promise future protec-
tion. Be thankful that you did
not face the killer flu virus in
1918, when limited resources
could not halt its spread
before 50 million died.
Global warming. This
could end with a sudden "cli-
mate flip" that -kills untold
millions. History says it has
happened before and our
present global warming is
seen by some as speeding a
recurrence. We see evidence
- in .ever-worsening storms
- that nature is taking drastic
measures to seek atmospher-
ic rebalance. Most scientists
in this specialty think it is not
too late to correct the condi-
tions that could wreak havoc
on our planet. But we must
start now. Be thankful we
have knowledge of what to
do. Pray we have the leader-
ship to do what must be
done.
Peak oil. This defines the
time when the Earth's fossil
fuels are half-depleted. Nov.
23 has been pegged by com-
puter programs as that day.


And the second half of our
fuel supply will not be nearly
as available and easily
extracted as the first. A col-
lapse of infrastructure around
the globe including ours -
is possible. Again, we know
what to do to wean ourselves
from oil addiction. It won't be
easy. The alternative is worse.
Be thankful we know what to
do. Pray we do it.
Terrorism. It's not a
nation or religion. And it can-
not be defeated by traditional
warfare methods. Our wars
today rob us of a valuable
resource: our young men and
women sent to do battle on
behalf of the powerful. Pray
that the powerful find the will
to bring them home before
next Thanksgiving. Then pro-
tect the homefront.
These are big concerns,
needing big resolutions. But
to me, the necessity for action
is brought home by three
young faces I confront regu-
larly.
My grandkids need a world
they can be. thankful they
inherited.-
For all the kids and grand-
kids, our actions today need
to prepare that world for their
tomorrow.


The mystery of the Woodmere sawmill solved


EDITOR'S NOTE: A recent
Let'em Have It caller inquired
about the location of the
Woodmere sawmill. South
Venice's Giovanna Deveny wrote ,,
in with the answer: .

The Sarasota County Wood-
mere Community Plan, De-
cember 1997, in the People and
the Plan section, reads: -
In 1918, the Manasota
Land and Timber Company
built a large sawmill in the
pine forests southeast of Ven-
ice. Three years later, another
company bought it and gave
it the name Woodmere.
Although the town of
Woodmere only existed for a
few years, at its peak in the
early 1920s, Woodmere had
more residents than Venice.
While the name Woodmere
survives in the names of roads,
parks and residential and com-
mercial developments, little
remains of that early town.
From the cover ofthe report:
Herman Kluge first came
to this area in 1917 as a timber
cruiser for a NewYork compa-
ny. His assignment was to
survey the area and deter-


mine whether the virgin pine
forests between Venice and
Charlotte Harbor were suit-
able for commercial timber-
ing. Lumber was urgently
needed in France and Great
Britain for ship building and
other uses duringWorldWar I.
Ground was broken for the
sawmill and the accompany-
ing town of Manasota on Oct.
19, 1918. By 1921 the Mana-
sota Land and Timber Com-
pany sold its entire property to
the Nocatee-Manatee Freight
Company and the new owners
changed the name of the town
toWoodmere.
Although the war ended
before the Woodmere Lum-
ber Company operation be-
gan, the need for lumber con-
tinued and the logging crews
worked five years until the
trees were stripped from the
landscape. Most of the lum-
ber used in Venice construc-
tion came from this company.
The holdings of the lumber
company were part of a
753,000-acre land grant given
,in 1884 by the state of Florida
to the Tampa, Peace Creek
and St. Johns River Railroad,
which later changed its name
to the Jacksonville, Tampa
and Key West Railway Com-
pany. The state deeded to any
railroad 10,000 acres of land
for each mile of railroad built.
The four-story mill, one of
the. largest in the state, was
equipped to saw raw lumber
as well as to finish the lumber
in every detail. The mill pro-
vided housing for up to 1,500
workers, and contained a
*machine shop, a railroad


yard, a commissary and a
dining hall that seated 1,200
persons. The dining hall also
served as a. recreation hall
and a motion picture theater.
The entire settlement was
surrounded with an electric
wire fence. No one was allow-
ed to leave or enter after 9
p.m. any day, except Satur-
days when the company train
made its weekly trip to Sara-
sota. This gave the residents
of Woodmere an opportunity
to shop for things not avail-
able at the commissary and to
enjoy a night out each week.
The train would leave
Woodmere each Saturday
night at 6:30 and returned
about 11 p.m. carrying passen-
gers loaded with packages.
A fire destroyed the mill in
1930. The property was aban-
doned due to the decreased
demand for lumber caused
by the Great Depression.
Most of the houses were
salvaged for their materials in
the lean years that followed.
Three of the houses, were
moved to Siesta Key in 1938
and one reportedly exists on
Casey Key. The town ofWood-
mere existed roughly where
the Dome Flea Market is lo-
cated today.
So, the short answer to the
question in the Let'em Have It
column, "Where was Wood-
mere located?" is, "Where the
Dome Flee Market is located
today," less than a mile down
State Road 776.

Adios. I've been in Florida a long time 1969 down in
Miami, and ifn Venice 15 years -.but we're moving. Too much
growth, too much heat, too many houses, too much stuff
ruined. But that's not really even why I called. My least favorite
thing golf shoes. And you know why? Soaked in all those
chemicals, those poor guys out in the sun, walking around in
their leather shoes all day in all these nasty chemicals golf
courses have. Now that's frightening. Anyway, thanks a lot. I \e
enjoyed Venice. So long.


Bad judgment. After read-
ing Let'em Have It about the
community center not being
able to be an evacuation cen-
ter, I can't believe we would
spend more than $4 million
just to pretty up that center. It
looks nice, but what good is it
if we can't use it in the most
essential way? The money
could have been, better used
just putting in a new center
out at the airport property for
all types of activities, but most
important an evacuation cen-
ter. The hospital surely makes
use of its facilities in warning
of any possible hurricane by
evacuating as many seniors,
sick or otherwise, as it can
hold, and it's free. What does


the community center offer? I
do think it's about time the
city council got some people
that have some common
sense and can make sound
judgments for all Venice resi-
dents. What did our millions
of dollars buy us?
I haven't been in the new
center, but I understand it has
no charm and a cold atmos-
phere and I guess all new fur-
nishings.
Also, did the center get any
additional parking? It sure
didn't' have enough before.
Amazing the decisions this
council makes while all the
new construction going up is
taking over all their monthly
meetings.

Mooring debate ends with minor change


The only significant change is a new 150-foot rule
on anchoring next to private homes. A proposed
72-hour time limit on boats passing through
county waters has been scrapped.


BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

A simple request that inex-
plicably turned into a full-
blown debate over where and
when boaters should be al-
lowed to moor their vessels in
Sarasota County waters has
finally been settled with only
one minor change to local
regulations that appears to
threaten nobody.
On Nov. 16, the county
commission agreed that
boaters must anchor at least
150 feet away from private,
residences if they are going
to remain for more than 24
hours, and scrapped the
notion of placing a time
limit on those passing


through.
"We took out the provision
that boaters can only moor
for 72 hours in county
waters," said commissioner
Nora Patterson, "and restored
some language from our
building code that states if a
boat is someone's permanent
dwelling it can't be moored
permanently in one loca-
tion."
As city of Sarasota offi-
cials have painfully, learned
over the years, efforts to
enforce such prohibitions
against "live-aboard"
boaters is a waste of time.
"It's impossible," said Pat-
terson, a former city com-
missioner, "but it gives the
sheriff some tools if there is


a derelict on a boat."
Reasonable
Patterson
initiated a
lengthy ex-
amination of
the county's
mooring reg-
ulations. after
the 2004 hur-
ricane season
when she
Patterson reported a
complaint by
one Siesta Key waterfront res-
ident about a boat moored
within just a few feet of his
property.
County resource prptec-,
tion officials looked at the
regulations adopted by
neighboring jurisdictions for
guidance, and came up with
recommendations that called
for a 300-foot mooring rule
off private property and a 72-
hour time limit on boats pass-
ing through.


"The commissioners de-
cided it was reasonable that
boaters on vacation could an-
chor for two nights in Lemon
Bay, two nights in Robarts Bay
and two nights in Little Sara-
sota Bay," said Matt Oster-
houdt, a county project scien-
tist who helped review the
mooring regulations.
Testimony from several
recreational boaters at a pub-
lic hearing on the proposed
changes suggested the 300-
foot and 72-hour rules were
excessive, and influenced the
commissioners to back away
from adopting measures that
would address nonexistent
problems.
"Waterfront property own-
ers don't pay taxes on all that
open water," said Russell
Dreyfuss. "To ask that every-
one anchor back .300 feet is
excessive. With respect to the
72-hour proposal, we, have
friends that come visit on
boats and,stay for five or six


days."
Former Sies-
ta Key Asso-
ciation Presi-
dent Peter
van Roekens
agreed.
"People can
easily spend
Staub three or four
days in coun-
ty waters," he said, "and mo-
oring 100 feet from some-
one's property is reasonable.
Some restrictions are neces-
sary, but they shouldn't be
excessive."
Too restrictive
While the proposed 72-
hour time limit on boats pass-
ing through local waters was
based on current city of
Sarasota and town of Long-
boat Key regulations, the
county commissioners came
to the conclusion they ad-
dress more restricted munici-
pal areas.'


'"Are you telling me I can't
anchor in Sarasota County for
more than 72 hours on my
two-week sailing vacation?"
commissioner Shannon
Staub asked at a recent meet-
ing. "What will I hurt?"
She warned the strict limi-
tation would be a hard sell in
the boating community.
In addition to regulating live-
aboard boat owners and recre-
ational boaters who sometimes
sleep over in county waters, the
county ordinance also address-
es mooring on public and pri-
vate property, deteriorated
boats, disabled boats and aban-
doned boats.
Agencies that helped early
draft versions' of the proposed
changes included the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, the county's
Natural Resources, Resource
Protection, Coastal Resources
and Parks and Recreation divi-
sions and the sheriff's depart-
ment.


Officials ignored clearing of protected upland habitat


In 1997, the county adopted land development
regulations that prohibit pre-clearing, The county
attorney's office has verified code enforcement


officials can cite offender
BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

Regulations are on -the
books that prohibit Sarasota
County property owners
from "clearing and grub-
bing" land without an
approved development
order, but the practice of
"pre-clearing" protected
upland habitat has never
been challenged by code
enforcement officials.
On Oct. 26, the oversight
was described in a report


s.

written by Amy Meese, the
county's resource protection
manager. A supporting legal
opinion by the county attor-
ney's office verifies the con-
clusion that "pre-clearing"
without proper authorization
is prohibited.,
"When we get feedback
from the county commission.
in a couple of weeks," she
said, "we will do a mailing to
land clearing companies and
developers. It's a good thing
we have a way of addressing
this problem without adopt-


ing new regulations."
In 1997, the county com-
mission adopted land devel-
opment regulations that pro-
hibit upland understory
clearing on privately owned
tracts of land, with the excep-
tion of single-family home-
sites and agriculturally zoned
parcels.
While the county has his-
torically identified both wet-
lands and uplands for protec-
tion in its comprehensive
plan, virtually all of its preser-
vation efforts have been
focused on wetland areas
threatened by development.
The issue of upland protec-
tion has been largely ignored.
When the county planning
commission recently recom-
mended that land develop-


ment regulations should
address upland protection of
mesic hammock, and scrub.
habitat, it was suggested by
staff officials that destruction
of such areas was probably
not a widespread problem.
Loophole
On April 27, county
resource protection officials
met with local environmental
consultants and Florida
Native Plant Society repre-
sentatives to discuss the
impacts of "pre-clearing" on
protected habitat, and deter-
mine whether new county
regulations are warranted.
As a result of the discussion,
the 1997 land development reg-
ulation was referred to the
county attorney's office to deter-


mine whether it provided regu-
latory authority for code
enforcement against individu-
als who "pre-clear" land and
destroy protected habitat
On Aug. 1, Assistant
County Attorney David
Pearce responded that while
sections of the land develop-
ment regulations don't specif-
ically mention "understory"
and "vegetation," it is clear
they prohibit the "grubbing
and clearing" of land without
proper authorization.
These recent revelations
about upland protection
should help the county' com-
mission focus on the still
unresolved practice of pre-
clearing agriculturally zoned

In 1998, the commission
slapped a two-year ban on pre-
clearing before a sale. But four
years later, when it voted to
expand the ban to sixyears, last-
minute language was inexplica-
bly inserted that effectively
wiped out all protection for
trees on agricultural tracts.
It was inserted into the
county's tree protection ordi-
nance and read: "Neither this
invalidation nor the six-year
time frame shall apply to
bona fide agricultural or silvi-
cultural operations." Building
officials later determined it
nullified the six-year ban.
Several commissioners -
among them Nora Patterson
and Jon Thaxton later con-
ceded they made a mistake in
voting for the language.

Getting the bang for your tax buck


BY KEN KLEINLEIN
COLUMNIST

I'm sure you all scrutinize
your tax bill when the time to
pay comes around.
I'll bet you also wonder if
you are getting the best bang
for the buck on the taxes you
are dunned.
I recently did some re-
search in that area and found
that, based on positive statis-
tics, what you pay in law
enforcement taxes is cost
effective.
i How much is the safety of
your person and property
really worth to you?
I will admit that I am a mite
slanted toward cops in gener-
al, based on my past and pre-
sent connections in this
venue.
With that said, allow me
to present my findings for
your information and edifi-
cation.


Washington, D.C..
The FBI in its annual statis-
tical crime report indicated
that the national murder rate
has dropped to its lowest level
in the last 40 years.
The four major violent
crimes murder, rape, rob-
bery and assaults show a
2.2 percent drop.
The three major property
crimes burglary, auto theft
and other larcenies fell 2.1
percent. The loss from these
property crimes is down 5
percent since 2003.
New York City
Released figures show that
overall crime dropped 2.7
percent. Violent crime was
reduced 5.2 percent.
The above statistics rank
NewYork City 33rd in terms of
the safety of its citizens from
violent crime, with 441.6 per
100,000 people reporting a
violent offense in 2004.


NewYork City also has one
of the lowest property-crime
rates in the country, with only
North and South Dakota and
New Hampshire safer in
warding off thieves.
Tallahassee, Fla.
An FDLE report has shown
that Florida's crime rate fell
3.3 percent in the first half of
this year as compared to the
same period in 2004. That is a
reduction of more than
10,000 crimes.
Crime in the state has been
dropping for more than; a
decade and has fallen to its
lowest level in 34 years.
Homicides for the first six
months of 2005 have dropped
10.5 percent as compared to
the same period in 2004, and
.nonviolent crimes dropped
3.9 percent. Domestic vio-
lence offenses were also
down, 2.4 percent.


Sarasota and Charlotte
Lt. Chuck Lesaltato of the
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office reports overall crime in
the county is down 8.73 per-
cent. Arrests and traffic cita-
tions are up 7.82 percent and
33.98 percent respectively.
Chief Deputy Bill Cameron
. of the Charlotte County Sher-
iff's Office sent me the follow-
ing comment (for the sake of
space I have paraphrased with-
out losing content and intent):
In the first six months of
2004 crime was on a slight
decrease for the first time in
many years. Then Hurricane
Charley rolled in and chang-
ed the face of Charlotte
County for years to come.
After the storm there was an
unprecedented rise in violent
crime such as assaults, batter-
ies and domestic violence.
People were pushed to their
limits and living conditions
were turned upside down. '


There was a rise in proper-
ty crimes because people
could not determine if their
property was stolen or just
lost to the storm. Frauds were
prevalent as recovery efforts
began.
Today Charlotte County is
slowly returning to normalcy
and crime statistics indicate
that post-storm crime issues
are subsiding. The real ques-
tion is, what will the county's
new normal be?
Many new people are liv-
ing and working here, and
comparisons to past years'
trends are for all practical
purposes not really relative
any longer. Only time will tell
where we will land as a post-
hurricane Charlotte County.
Venice
Felony arrests are up 16
percent, misdemeanor ar-
rests rose 60 percent and traf-
fic citations increased 30 per-


cent.
Overall, crime is down 12
percent and calls for service
are up 10 percent.
All in all, it appears that law
enforcement on the national,
state, county and municipal
levels is doing a pretty good
job protecting us.
When you write out that
tax check, remember that law
enforcement is doing the very
best it can with .the monies
allocated to keep you safe and
secure. Statistics appear to
support this hypothesis.

detective with the NYPD

Hughes will

be missed

The Venice High athletic
department is losing a jewel.
We're talking about secre-
tary Ellen Hughes, who will be
leaving after the New Year to
take a position with All
Around Charters.
Hughes came to VHS at the
beginning of the 2003 school
year, taking the place of
Wanda Powell, who retired
after many moons at the job.
Hughes was always help-
ful, pleasant and upbeat. She
will be missed.
Folks can still find her
Monday and Tuesday nights
at Sharks, the New England
seafood restaurant located off
U.S. 41 in North Port.
Her son, Pat, will play his
senior year of baseball for the
North Port Bobcats this
spring.

While we're on the topic of
shining stars, we tip our hat to
Wendi Leach of the Venice
Vikings youth football/cheer-
leading organization.
She was most helpful dur-
ing the 2005 season. Be it
chasing down coaches to
round up scores or letting us
know how,the cheerleaders
were doing in competition,
Wendi simply got it done.
Definitely someone the
Vikings organization should
be very proud of." '- .
Talking about Viking cheer-
leaders, good luck to the
Knights and Lancers in their
upcoming competition at Pop
Warner Nationals at Disney.

Davidson, Whitescarver at NJCAA Nationals


Pasco-Hernando finish-
es 10th out of 16 in
Missouri.

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Two former Venice High
volleyball standouts nimade
the trip to Missouri last week
for the National Junior"
College Athletic Association's
Nationals.
Both Amber Davidson and
Melissa Whitescarver are
freshmen at Pasco-Hernando
Community College, which
was one of 16 teams partici-
pating in the prestigious
event played at the West
Plains Civic Center.
PHCC went into the event
seeded ninth. PHCC earned
the trip by finishing second to
Miami Dade in the FCCAA
State Championships in
Lakeland.
Pasco-Hernando finished
2-2 in, the tournament -
good for 10th place. Southern
Idaho won the title, defeating
Miami Dade in the finals.
Pasco-Hernando finished


with a record of 32-11.
PHCC opened the tourney
by defeating Cape Bear (N.C.)
in three. Pasco Hernando
then lost to Blinn (Texas) in
three straight before
rebounding to down
Gadsden State (Ala.) in four.
In the match for ninth place,
PHCC lost to Salt Lake (Utah)
in four games.
Davidson is a libero and
Whitescarver an outside hit-
ter.

Former Venice High and
current Tampa University
sophomore Margeau
Sinibaldi is a first team
Sunshine State Conference
selection and a second team
All South Region selection.
Sinibaldi is an outstanding
libero or defensive specialist
for the Lady Spartans.
Tampa (27-4) won the
South Region by defeating
Gulf Coast in three straight.
The Lady Spartans are now in
Kearney, Neb., for the NCAA
Division II Final Eight. The
tourney opener will be
Thursday against Concordia-
St. Paul. If Tampa wins its


opener, it will play in the
national semifinal on Friday.

Danielle Durham is anoth-
er VHS alum gaining post-
season recognition.
The Florida Southern
College hitter/defender was
named South Region
Freshman of the Year by the
American Volleyball Coaches
Association.
Durham helped the Lady
Moccasins to a fine 33-4
record this fall.
Durham was third in kills
on the Florida Southern
team. She will no doubt be
one of the leaders for years to
come.
Early registration for LL

Venice Little League will
hold early registration for the
2006 spring season on Dec. 6
and 9 at the Chuck Reiter
Complex. Players ages 7-16

Daniels second team All MEAC


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Former Venice High foot-
bail standout Ardell Daniels
received some good news
early last week when he was
named AJU-MEAC Conference
second team.
He was a big part of
Hampton University's 11-0
regular season. For the sec-
ond straight year, he topped
the 1,000-yard rushing mark.
Daniels' career ended on a
sour note on Saturday, how-
ever, as Hampton was elimi-
nated by Richmond in the
opening round of the NCAA
Division I-AA playoffs, 38-10.
Richmond (9-3) scored 28
unanswered points in the
second half, breaking open a
10-10 halftime tie. I


Daniels and Alonzo
Coleman, Hampton's pair of
1,000-yard backs, were held
to just 46 yards on 20
attempts, while the Pirate
quarterbacks were sacked five
times.
The loss was the fourth
straight in the I-AA playoffs
for the Pirates, who are 0-4
all-time in the postseason
since moving up to Division I-
AA in 1995.
Daniels was held to 12
yards on six carries. He fin-
ished up his senior year with
1,044 yards on 192 carries (5.4
yards per carry).

Another ex-VHS great -
Mark Cristiani- also reaped
some postseason recogni-
tion. The Eastern Kentucky
University defensive tackle


was named first team AlJ-
Ohio Valley Conference.
The junior was second on
the team in sacks and was a
constant nuisance in oppo-
nents' backfields.
EKU finished up a solid 7-4
season Nov. 19 with a 49-0
victoryy at Tennessee State.
The Colonels ended the sea-
son by winning four straight.
Meanwhile at the other
end of the Bluegrass State,
,Western Kentucky ended its
season with a four-game los-
ing streak. The Hilltoppers
finale was a 38-35 setback at
Florida International.
WKU finished the season
at 6-5. Sophomore Dusty
Bear, a former Venice High
standout, was a starting nose

Golf is an enigma, a mystery wrapped in a riddle


It was good to hear that
David Duval is playing well
again. Granted, it's a long way
from the Dunlop Phoenix to
being a steady contender on
the PGA Tour, but at least it
seems he's making his way
back .
What happens to a golfer
when it all, goes wrong? We
could ask Ian Baker-Finch
and I'll bet he couldn't tell you
to this day. His game just fell
apart. It has happened to
many players, most of whom
you've never heard of.
Golf is a mystery. No one
knows where it comes from
or where it goes when it's
gone. I am sure that we all
think it can never happen to
us, but we are sooooo wrong.
Confidence is a very fragile
entity. If you have it, you
never feel as if you are going
to lose it. However, once it's
gone it can be almost impos-
sible to regain. Ask David
Duval. After apparently being
Tiger's. greatest threat five or
six years ago, he just disap-


peared from the landscape.
We are talking about a golfer
who has won majors here.'
Duval was so dominant at the
time, many people thought
he was going to be Tiger's Tom
Watson, the guy who was just
a thorn in his side for years.
But it didn't turn out that
way. Somewhere along the
road, Duval fell into a ditch he
couldn't climb out of.
That is part of the beauty of
golf. If you think you have it
mastered, then it has you,
right where it wants you. It


has happened to me. About
10 years ago, I took a couple
of years off from the game
due to personal reasons. Oh, I
played about six times during
that span and didn't hit it that
bad, so I figured I could pick
the bats back up at any time
and be competitive. How
wrong I was.
When I decided to start
playing again, I found it was
all gone. It must have taken
me almost a year of shooting
high eighty scores before I got
back. It almost seemed as if
whatever I'd had was gone.
Now don't get me wrong, I
was no tour player before I
took the time off. But it
seemed I had regressed quite
a long way from where I was. I
had worked my way from the
bottom up to where I really,
felt good about my game.
I started playing golf when
I was 25. Many good players
had been playing for 15 years
or so before I ever picked up a/
club. I managed to go from a
30 plus handicap to being an


assistant professional in
about six years no small
feat let me tell you.
I passed my Player Ability
Test at PGA National in West
Palm Beach on my second try.
All I had to do from there was
go to business school and I
could become a pro.
There is an old saying in
the golf business. The best
way to play less golf is to go to
work in the business. Those
who have done it know what
I'm talking about. A golf
course can be a great place to
hang out, unless you work
there. By the time your shift
on the desk is done, you just
want to go and get away from
there. Being in the business
drains your love of the game.
It's more about dealing with
Mrs. Johnson not under-
standing how to enter her
handicap than playing golf. In
fact, golf is about the last
thing you have time for. See
-ya.

Another long hurricane season winds down


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

The names Charley,
Frances, Ivan and Jeanne
evoke the horrible memories
of the 2004 hurricane season.
This year brought new
names, new fears, new
destruction and more horri-
ble memories.
A 25- to 40-year cycle of
more hurricanes in the
Atlantic basin continued in
2005 and on Wednesday, the
season will finally, mercifully,
end.
The season can be viewed
in several-ways: The records
that were broken, the images
of a flooded city, or even the
close calls Southwest Florida
experienced.
Regardless, for the second
year in a row, nature's fury
from the sea made everyone:
aware 'of how helpless an
exposed coastline really is.
"Thank God it's over," said
John Keller. "It is really getting
out of control about how
many are forming each year. I
don't think my nerves can
stand another year like this
again."
Keller's comments are
common among people who
are still picking up the pieces
from Hurricane Charley,
which shredded homes and
lives more than 16 months
ago.
Experts warn that the peri-
od of increased activity is not
over, and awareness, prepara-
tion and common sense will
go a long way in calming
frayed nerves.
Emergency Planning
Specialist Lisa Schaber said
each storm that formed the
past two years will be ana-
lyzed, and the information
gathered will help forecasters
and emergency managers
better understand these
monster storms.
"We learn from every
storm," Schaber said. "We
know each storm is different,
and that is why you have to
take them one at a time and
not think of all of them at
once."
Schaber spent 10 days in
Hancock County, Miss., fol-
lowing Hurricane Katrina and
saw firsthand the effects of
people assuming they had
seen the worst from a hurri-
cane.
People there used
Hurricane Camille, -which
struck in 1969, as the bench-
mark for all storms. Katrina's
storm surge went a mile
inland and the eye reached
from the edges of New
Orleans, La., to Biloxi, Miss.,
devastating hundreds of.
miles of coastline.
Schaber said people need
to take every storm seriously
and at face value. :
"For those people who
went through Charley, they'
need to realize the next storm
will be different," she said. "It
could bring the surge or more
.wind. You never know, but
you need to be prepared."

No point


Frank Lepore of the'
National Hurricane Center in
Miami said the emphasis this
off-season is to educate the
public that hurricanes are
very broad circulations of air
and are not a "point on a
map.
'"There is a degree of
uncertainty in the forecast
process," Lepore said. "Just
because it looks the same
doesn't mean that it's going to
act like something before."
This season will be
remembered not only for the
number of storms -.26 -
but for the intensity of these
forces of nature three with
winds reaching Category 5
strength at 175 mph and
the damage they wrought.,
Images of Hurricane
Katrina have become the lat-
est reality of what a hurricane
IS.
.Flooded 'streets in New.
Orleans. Whole communities
wiped away by storm surge.
More than 1,300 dead.
Ironically, Katrina was only
the third strongest storm of
the season in terms of baro-
metric pressure, a measure-


GRAPHIC COURTESY OF WONDERGROUND.COM AND NOAA
The 2005 hurricane season has been the busiest on record..This chart of named storms shows the various paths taken by this
year's storms, with the exception of Epsilon, which was named Tuesday.


ment commonly used by
meteorologists to measure
intensity. Rita and thenWilma
surpassed Katrina in intensity
but did not cause near the
widespread destruction.
This season is the first time
the hurricane center ran out
of names on its 21-name list.
The center does not use Q, U,
X, Y or Z because there are too
few available names. Instead,
the center used the Greek
alphabet for additional
names, as Alpha, Beta,
Gamma and finally Delta'
formed the day before
Thanksgiving. Epsilon was
named Tuesday.
The record of 21 tropical
storms and hurricanes in a
season had stood since 1933.
The 13 hurricanes this year
also broke the record of 12 set
in 1969. Hurricane Katrina
became the most expensive
U.S. hurricane ever and the
deadliest one to hit America
since 1928...
As with most hurricanes,
each weakened slightly
before landfall.

Getting off easy
Southwest Florida fared
well during the season, as
each storm managed to veer
away, although several of the'
storms threatened the coast-
line if only for brief periods
of time.
The .National Hurricane
Center's five-day forecast
cone, which is known to have
errors as great as 250 miles or
more at five days, covered the
area several times during the
season.
After surviving the 150
mph Category 4 Hurricane
Charley on Aug. 13, 2004, fear
became the norm for resi-
dents as each new storm
formed and loomed in the
open water.
Hurricane Dennis put the
area under a hurricane watch
on July 8 and missed the area
completely as it headed for
the Alabama coastline. The
storm caused about $5 billion
in insured damage and killed
71 people.
Hurricane Katrina brought:
a tropical storm warning for
the area Aug. 25, and with it, a
few outer rain bands, but little
else. It intensified after pass-
ing through the southern tip
of Florida and had a rapid
growth into a Category 5
storm before weakening to a
Category 4, then slamming
the Louisiana and Mississippi
coastlines with 140 mph
winds and storm surge that
washed up to a mile inland.
Levee breaks flooded New
Orleans and the death toll has'
reached beyond 1,300. The
storm caused an estimated
$50 billion in insured dam-
age.
Three weeks later,


Hurricane Rita put the area
under a tropical storm watch
on Sept. 19, dropping rain
and bringing some wind, but
again the area was spared as it


went south of the Florida
Keys. Rita went on to mirror
Katrina and came ashore at
the Louisiana/Texas border,
causing an estimated $8 bil-


lion in insured damage and
killing 119 people.
Hurricane Wilma followed
in mid-October and rapidly
intensified to become the


strongest storm on record.
Wilma's central pressure
dropped to 882 millibars,
which was the lowest pres-
sure ever measured in the
Atlantic basin, breaking the
old record set by Hurricane
Gilbert in 1988 of 888 mil-
libars.
Wilma then drifted north
while pounding the Mexican
coastline and taunted Florida'
for several days. Southwest
Florida was put under a hurri-
cane warning on Oct. 23 and '
received wind gusts of more
than 60 mph as the storm
roared ashore as a Category 3
just south of Marco Island.
There was minor damage,'
across the area, but nothing
compared to the widespread
damage Charley had brought.

How did they do?
Lepore said the hurricane
center will use the entire off-
.season to analyze its forecasts
and warnings and do whatev-
er it takes to improve the
accuracy.
There are six forecasters to
split up the complicated work"
of poring through mounds of
data to see what went right
and what went wrong.
He reminds people it was
only.a few years ago that the
hurricane center had the con-
fidence to expand its forecast
track and cone from three to
five days.
"We have come a long way
in forecasting, but these
things are huge weather sys-
tems and they tend to do
what they want," Lepore said.

Musical chairs in Todd world


Dr. Carol Todd took over the reins as chair of the Sarasota County School Board Nov. 22. It's her
second stint as district leader.


School board members Frank Kovach and Carol Todd debrief with a group of leadership acade-
my students following last week's board meeting.


For Dr. Carol Todd, her second time 'round as
chair of the Sarasota County School Board is
"neato mosquito!"


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


For the record, Dr. Carol
Todd does not secretly plant
herself in front of the TV at 7
a.m. to watch the preschool
cartoon show "Todd World."
In fact, she's never seen
monotoothed, blue-hued
Todd with his fun-filled chat-
ter.
You can't hold that against
her. After all, Todd's busy
world just grew a whole lot
busier now that she has been
elected to chair the Sarasota


County School Board for the
next year.
It's her second time serving
as chair. She last served in
2002 with Frank Kovach as
vice chair. Kovach was elected
again to serve as vice chair,
under Todd by fellow board
members at the Nov. 22 reor-
ganization meeting. Kovach
last served as chair in 2003.
The five-member board
rotates, the chairmanship
each year, so it isn't uncom-
mon for those serving more
than one four-year term to
serve as chair more than one


time.
With members John Lewis
and Laura Benson effectively
taking themselves out of the
running by vying for other
public office, and Kathy
Kleinlein finishing up her
term as chair, filling the, chair
and vice chair positions was a
no-brainer.
Teacher, teacher
Even if it were Todd's first
time as chair, you wouldn't
know it. She's a professional
educator and leadership
trainer by trade.
Todd is an adjunct profes-
sor who teaches curriculum
theory and educational re-
search at Saint Leo University,
Florida's oldest Catholic pri-
vate institution of higher


learning, north of Tampa..
She's also an education
.consultant
Todd has provided services
to public schools in Louisiana
and Virginia, and to nonprofit
organizations in the area of
board development and stra-
tegic planning.
"What all this means is I
not only like going to school,
but I like teaching school,"
Todd said.
"Thirty years ago I had a
focus education. This was
it. I geared everything I did
toward that focus."
Continuity
Todd, a Republican, is now
serving the fourth year of her
second term. She says one of
the keys to the board's recent


successes is its longevity. '
"Continuity is important
for the board, and preparing
people for the chair ... it's all
part of board leadership. I
think it's important work,"
Todd said.
She takes an active role on
the board. Call her and you
are likely to find Todd on her
way to visit a pubic school
conducting research.
She. has been personally
visiting all the alternative
schools in the county lately to
help gauge their effective-
ness.
Todd asked for a study of
the schools by district staff a
few months back. It is being
compiled.
Todd's priority issues:! 1)
passage of the 1-mill referen-


dum to ensure adequate edu-
cation dollars, 2) improving
student achievement (implic-
it in that, says Todd, is lower-
ing dropout rates and raising
the graduation rate for all stu-
dents), and 3) building the
vocational technical school.
They are the same priori-
ties of conservative Repub-
lican Frank Kovach.
First elected to the school
board in 2000, Kovach was re-
elected in 2004 for a second
term.
A commercial Realtor and
licensed air conditioning
contractor, Kovach was born
and raised in Sarasota.

PHOTOS COURTESY OF DEBORAH BERIOLI
Deborah Berioli in the Puccini opera "Tosca," performed in San Jose in 2004.



The voice heard round the world



returns to Venice


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDffOR

Venice opera buffs were so
enthralled with the voice of
Deborah Berioli whenever
she sang in this area that it
was only a matter of time
before she would be asked to
return.
The time is Dec. 29, when
the soprano will perform in
concert for the Venice Opera
Guild's Benefit Concert.
Now a principal artist in
residence with Opera San


Jose, she was lured away from
a position as the director of
this area's Suncoast Chorale
last year.
Berioli was a studio artist
with the Sarasota Opera in its
2001 season, singing the roles
of Giulietta and Antonia in
"The Tales of Hoffman." In
March 2004,i she performed
with the Venice Symphony,
earning these comments
from Sun reviewer Jan Find-
ley:
"Deborah's voice wrapped
itself around the words and


Berioli as the Countess Almaviva in Mozart's "The Marriage of
Figaro," performed at the Opera San Jose in 2004.


their meanings, and went on
to envelop the entire audi-
ence. Shi evokes an instant
rapport with her audiences
and they love her before she
sings a note."
Findley said Berioli also is a,
talented pianist and organist.
Berioli was on the Met-
ropolitan Guild Education
Outreach Tour during the
2002-2003 season.
As Artist in Residence with
the Opera San Jose, she has
sung ihe roles of Tosca in the
Pucini opera of the same
name (2005), as Micaela in
Carmen (2004) and as Count-
ess Almaviva in Mozart's "The
Marriage of Figaro" (2004).
Berioli has performed sev-
eral times at:. Carnegie Hall,
singing Pouolenc's "Gloria" in
2002 with the New England
Symphonic Ensemble. .Her
hall debut was in 2000 when
she performed the the Faure
and Mozart "Requiems" in
2000, returning the following
year to repeat her success.
In addition to her appear-
ances with the Venice Symn-
phony and at Carnegie Hall,
Berioli has sung with the
Nlinnesota Orchestra, per-
forming Ravel's "L'Enfamnt et
Les Sortileges" in 1999.
She won the Metropolitan
National Council Upper Mid-
Western District Award in
1999 and placed third in the
Metropolitan National Coun-
cil Upper Mid-Western Re-
gional dhision the same year.
On the "Wild Side" Berioli
is an animal lover who has
sung, a benefit performance
for the Pelican Man Bird
Sanctuary in Sarasota., She
also has adopted the sanctu-
ary's permanently disabled
great egret, Mr. Egret, for life.
The bird lives permanently at
the sanctuary because he lost

Peter Catalanotto, chil-
dren's book author and illus-
trator, visited Epiphany Ca-
thedral School Thursday, Nov.
17, to share his experiences in
writing and art with the chil-
dren.
Catalanotto has written
several books and illustrated
approximately 150.
The students were particu-
larly impressed that although
Catalanotto suffers from dis-
graphi4, a writing difficulty
similar to dyslexia, he has still
managed to become an ac-
complished author.
"Some kids ask me how I
learned to write backwards,"
he told the students.
Catalanotto showed the
students slides of his grade-
school art work and ex-
plained that being an artist
doesn't have to mean pos-
sessing exceptional artistic
talent.
"If you love to draw, you're
an artist right now," he said.
Catalanotto demonstrated

way and eliminate common,

An e-mail offer


he can't refuse


BROTHER CRAIG
COLUMNIST


First, I want to thank the
many readers who read my
last column and ordered my
"Humor Helps!" book. I am
grateful to all three of you. '
Not to mention, but I will
anyway, the nice people who
come tip to me while I'm
shopping (and trying to figure
out if 5 pounds of potatoes at
89 cents a pound is cheaper
than 10 pounds of potatoes at
89 cents a pound) and tell me
how much they love this col-
umn. One woman even said,
"But you don't look funny." I
thanked her.
Anyway, once again we
received one of those e-mails
where we are offered several
million dollars (which always
must be removed quickly
from out of the country it is
in) and which we will receive
by only providing our bank
account number, any credit
card numbers and our fav-
orite color.
Usually, the e-mail is from
some prime minister or grand
sultan who, having millions of
dollars in a bank, needs to e-
mail a total stranger to help
him do a simple transfer. I
mean, can't he get a with-


drawal slip and go to the
drive-through?
But, of course, how would I
know what it is like to have to
move such large amounts of
money around? The closest
I've come to that was when
we had a large yard sale and
then spent two days rolling
coins.
The one we received re-
cently was really exciting. It,
was from the former prince of
the island kingdom Puki Puki,
who had been ousted from
power by his 2-year-old
brother. He wanted to transfer,
the $5 million to our bank
account and also send us the
contents of his safety deposit
box: a Rolexwatch, his medal-
lion of the Order of the Pink
Elephant and a fine pair of
shoelaces (one black, one
brown.)
He requested our bank
account number, credit card
numbers and any really valu-
able baseball cards we might
have. Once he received these,
he would fly to Boise, Idaho,
(where his sister is a mani-
curist) and at the airport we
would make the exchange.
It was all worked out intel-
ligently and to the last detail.
We were to bring a briefcase
with the $5 million that had
been transferred to our bank
account and the contents of
the safety deposit box. The
prince would meet us. He
explained we would recog-
nize him, as he looks like
. Greta Garbo only he has a
crew-cut.
We were to walk up to him
and say, "The cost'of lemon-

Retailers seeing green




on 'Black Friday


BY RACHEL ALEXANDER
STAFF WRITER -


With the morning still (dark
and the roads almost barren,
Englewood's Wal-Mart Sulper-
Center sported its typical clay-
time hustle and bustle.
Even before 5 a.m. -, the
start of Wal-Mart's sale the
lot was full with cars and peo-
ple scurrying in and out ofi the
store to take advantage of
slashed prices.
Friday was "Black Friday,"
the day after Thanksgiving,
and the day considered to be
one of the busiest shopping
days of the year.
By 3:30 a.m. there were
already 24 people in front; of
Alex McKenna, who stood' in
line at Wal-Mart to receive
one of only 30 Hewlett Pack-
ard laptop computers priced
at $378.
"People were here since
midnight," McKenna said.
"They have almost exactly the
same computer at Staples for
$700."
There were no chairs to
rest on, except for the few
who arrived at midnight and
slept on the benches after
receiving a number to mark
their place in line for the com.-
puter.
Nearly 50 people were irn

item, said William Stapleton,
an Englewood resident and
local businessman.
Stapleton was in line with
his mother, Carrol Meyer.
Both arrived just behind Mc-
Kenna.
Stapleton joked the store
should have had snacks for
the : people committed
enough to wait so long for its
promoted items.
"We thought there would
be bagels and cream cheese
and coffee, but it's not here,"
he said.
Jump-start
After nearly two hours ip
the computer line, Stapleton
and Meyer waited, in yet
another line to put the laptop,
and other items on lay-away.
By 6:30 a.m., most of the
the lines had dissipated, and
the lay-away line started to
move at a regular pace.
Diane Hamrick, a local res-


ident andWal-Mart customer
in the lay-away line, said she
arrived close to 5 a.m. to pur-
chase advertised items.
"It's too early, but I do this
every year," Hamrick said.
Last year Wal-Mart was
closed for some time and
reopened at 6 a.m., but this
year after renovations, the
store never closed and began
its promotional sales at 5
a.m., an hour earlier than
prior years.
Hamrick said she was
there for an advertised port-
able DVD player selling for
$79. She was getting the DVD
to replace one she bought her
daughter for much more the
prior year.
"I'm here to replace one
that lasted six months and
died," Hamrick said.
She didn't have to wait long
for the item, though.
"There were plenty of
them, but you can't take a
chance," she said.
According to Jean Chatzky


of MSNBC, the shopping
spree event is used by retail-
ers to jump-start the holiday
shopping season.
"It's to get you in the door
and get you excited," Chatzky
said Thursday from New York
City.
She said big-chain depart-
ment stores put laptops,
iPODS, DVDs and MP3s on
sale for the short-time com-
petitive event. Those are the
hot items for the season,
according to Chatzky.
- Debbie Barber, a Wal-Mart
assistant manager, said the
Englewood store put 15-inch
LCD TVs, discounted cam-
eras, toys and bikes on the
popular list for the six-hour
frenzy.
Barber said Wal-Mdrt is
competing with other. area
department stores who are car-
rying on similar promotions.
"We'll be .(matching) any
ad that comes to us at any
time (throughout the sale,)"
Barber said.

Salmen High School, a
public high school in Slidell,
La., was hit hard by Hurricane
Katrina. The school is located
very near Lake Pontchartrain
and is about 20 miles north of
New Orleans. All the build-
ings were completely covered
by a tidal surge of some 15
feet. Only the rooftops were
left visible. Nothing at all in
the school's library is salvage-
able. Currently, Salmen High
School is sharing facilities
with another school in Slidell.
The Salmen rebuilding pro-
cess is expected to begin after


the winter holidays. What
can't easily be rebuilt is the
library's book collection,

student (per-Southern Asso-

Ringling Bridge Run raises $58,973 for Bari Brooks Center and

Louisiana YMCAs rebuilding from Hurricane Katrina


Girls Inc. announces

Celebration Luncheon chairs


STAFF REPORT

The New Balance Ringling
Bridge Run III this year raised
$58,973 for the Bari Brooks
Center for teens and for
Hurricane Katrina relief,
according to David Mills,
Sarasota County commis-
sioner and race chair.
Of the total, $36,572 was
distributed to three YMCA
Branches in Louisiana to help
pay the deductibles on their
insurance for losses incurred
in the hurricane. Half of that
donation was in matching
funds from the YMCA of the
USA. The remaining $22,401
was given to the Bari Brooks
Center for teens at the Frank
G. Berlin Sr. Branch on Euclid
Avenue. The center is a safe
place for teens to enjoy games
with friends after school and
on weekends.
This year's race brings the
three-year total raised to
$147,000, Mills said. In 2003,
race proceeds went to the Bari
Brooks Center for teens. In
2004, race organizers com-
mitted all proceeds to help
rebuild the Charlotte County
YMCA Preschool Center that
provides daily care for 100
children. The building had
been severely damaged in
Hurricane Charley.
Sarasota County Parks and
Recreation and the Sarasota
FamilyYMCA sponsor the an-
nual race, which drew 1,500
participants in a 5K run and
one-mile Fun Walk. Awards
were given to all age groups,
with some participants al-
most 90 years old.


Galapagos

photography

from Eclipse

Voyage

premiers at

the Wildlife

Gallery

STAFF REPORT
Renowned wildlife photog-
rapher Stuart Marcus
returned from a voyage on the
Eclipse, a luxury expedition
vessel sailing the Galapagos
Islands, with 8,000 pho-
tographs of the spectacular
flora and fauna of the islands.
Seventy of the photographs
will be in the grand opening
exhibit at The Wildlife Gallery
in Lutz, Fla.
Unique in the local art
scene, The Wildlife Gallery
concentrates on the portrayal
of wildlife in their natural
environment. The first show,
running through Feb. 28,
2006, features the wildlife of
the Galapagos Islands. The
show will feature Marcus' vast
number of pieces on a rotat-
ing basis, along with pieces by
marine sculptor Scott Hanson
and works by Sherrie St.
James, Jeff McCartney and
Mike Lowell.
A staunch supporter of
wildlife and environmental
conservation, Marcus' guid-
ing principle is to capture the
natural behavior of wildlife
with as. little impact on the
animals and their environ-
ment as possible. Marcus'
photographs have been sold
to private collectors all over
the world andkare featured in
the current Eclipse brochure.
Pristine and unspoiled, the
Galapagos remains much the

Q 1 Vulnerable, you hold:
A85 Q AKQJ103 o KQJ103 Void
What is your opening bid?
A While you have only three losers
and game in hand, you do not have
the defensive tricks to open with a
demand bid. Open one heart, then
make a jump shift in diamonds at
your second turn.
Q 2 As .South, vulnerable, you
hold:
S8 3 J 1076 o Q 10853 4K9
The bidding has roceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
Pass Pass 10 Pass
What do you respond?
A -'When partner opens with a one-
bid in a minor suit and you hold a.
four-card major, it is usually correct
to bid that major in response. This
hand is no exception. Bid one heart.
Q 3 As South, vulnerable, you
hold:
AK86432 v,5 O AQ106 4J10
The bidding has proceeded:
EAST SOUTH WEST NORTH
14 Pass INT 2NT
Pass ?
What do you bid now?
A Partner's two no trump is a
minor-suit takeout, and you have a
very good hand for him. It is simply
a question of whether you should
jump to four diamonds or to game.
Don't hang partner for competing,
Jump to four diamonds. He will be
able to judge whether to proceed to
game or. not.
Q 4 Vulnerable, as South you hold:
4AQ96532 rKQ8 oKQ5 4Void
The bidding has proceeded:


SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
1* 24 Pass Pass
What do you bid now?
A You don't need much to make
four spades, but there are many hold-
ings where slam might be laydown.
Start with a cue-bid of three clubs to
see how partner reacts.
Q 5 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
4AJ752 6 O A1074 4.1073
The bidding has proceeded:.
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
1V 24 ?
What action do you take?
A It seems you might ask, "What's
the problem? Two spades." However,
there is a problem. Your bid is a one-
round force and what do you intend
doing should partner rebid three
hearts. We would take a chance and
double for penalties or, if we play
negative doubles, do so for takeout.
Even should a penalty double result
in the opponents making that con-
tract, you won't have cost your side
much.
Q 6 Vulnerable, as South you hold:
4KQJ v 96 oKQ83 4*K1076
Partner opens the bidding with four
hearts. What action do you take?
A Four hearts is a preempt. Partner
cannot hold a solid heart suit and an
outside ace, so you're either off three
aces (most likely) or two aces and a,
possible heart loser. Do not give up a
vulnerable game when you might get
overboard. Pass.

Who let all of these cars out on the road?


J.J. Andrews
BACK O.F THE PACK

Early-morning runs on
Venice island serve 'as a
reminder to why so many of
us live here.
Peace and quiet.
Nearly the only sounds a
person hears at 6 a.m. along

town Bradentori at the new
Arthritis Foundation office on
12th Street West (Old Main

along the scenic Bradenton
River Walk amidst the sights
and sounds of the holiday
and also includes a 1-mile


Drive are that of your running
shoes tapping the pavement.
There's also the occasional
burst of laughter as one of the
more "colorful" members of
the Venice Runners Group
retells a story.
I wonder how many neigh-
bors we've woken up this past
summer.
So imagine our sadness
when we realized the ,other
week the running group is no
longer alone on the roads
before the sun comes up. Out
of nowhere, there seem to be
ambulances coming in and
out of the hospital, cars and
trucks in every direction and
the general noise created by
traffic.
Must be snowbird season.
Odds are you're expecting
me to go into an anti-snow-

option. There will be holiday
entertainment, plenty of food
and raffle prizes and lots of
fun. Participants receive an
official Jingle Bell Run long-
sleeved T-shirt and shiny jin-
gle bells for their shoes. This is
the largest run/walk in
Manatee County, and orga-
nizers expect 1,500 runners.
This event also serves as the
official kick off of the Winter
Wonderland Celebration,
Boat Parade and the holiday

28th Annual Sandy Claws

bird rant. I will not do that,
mostly because I like the
snowbirds and some of my
best running friends are part-
time residents.
I just don't like the traffic
and congestion that comes
with them.
Cars always win
The point of this column is
to warn all the runners and
walkers out there to be care-
ful. More people, and more
cars mean more danger for
the avid pedestrians who
share the road with them.
And even if you're in the
right, cars are bigger so we
must always get out of their
way- unless you don't mind
a trip to the hospital.
On top of that, the winter
months mean there's less


and is sanctioned by MTC.
For more information, call
(941) 861-7275, or visit park-
sonline.scgov.net.
W hat's your fitness story?
Are you organizing or part
of a fitness group that walks,
lift weights, aerobics, yoga,
bicycles or nearly anything
else that works up a sweat?
Then tell us your fitness story
by e-mailing Assistant Editor
'J.J. Andrews at jandrews@
venicegondolier.com.
Don't have story, but have a
special event or road race? We
want to know about that also
as the In Shape fitness page
attempts to encompass all
types of exercise and nutri-
tion, not just walking and jog-
ging. Submit fitness-related
news briefs and announce-
ments by e-mail, or call
Andrews at 207-1103.
Weekend walks
The Saturday morning
walking group sponsored by
Venice. Area Beautification-
Inc., South County YMCA and
the Venice Area Chamber of
'Commerce continues to meet.
Participation is free of
charge and open to all people
of any age. The group meets
at 8 a.m. every Saturday,
weather permitting, at the
parking lot area of Venetian
Waterway Park behind .the
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice.
Routes vary, but are primar-
ily on the Venetian Waterway
Park. Walk at your own pace;


daylight out there and many
of us are jogging before the
sun rises or right after it sets.
Here are a series of safety
tips taken from an article by
Terry Mckintosh of runner-
sworld.com:
Face the traffic: If there
are no bike paths or sidewalks
and you use the road, always
go in the direction facing
oncoming traffic.
Dress correctly: Drivers
are rarely on the lookout for
pedestrians at night or early
mornings. Wear light-colored
or reflective clothing. The
worst colors to wear while
training in the dark are blue,
black or navy, which renders
the person virtually invisible
to traffic.
Never run alone: While
crime is not a major concern


everyone is welcome. Call the'
chamber at 488-2236 for more
information.
Beach Yoga canceled
The Monday and Friday
beach Yoga program by
Venice YMCA at Service Club
Park on Harbor Drive has
been discontinued, at the
request of the city.
Yoga class organizers were
recently told the YMCA can-
not charge for classes held at
the public beach. The $5 per
person charge went to pay for
the certified Yoga instructor.
As of now, Venice YMCA
has not announced if orga-
nizers will attempt to find a
new beach location.
Contact Melanie at
MelanieM@veniceymca.org
or call 492-9622 with any
questions.
Venice morning runs
Area joggers are invited out
to morning training runs in
Venice. These runs start
promptly at 6 a.m. every
Monday, Wednesday and
Friday, so arrive a few min-
utes early A 13-mile distance
group has been added to
Friday, with runners on the
road by 5 a.m.
Runners meet on the
island at the main parking lot,
called Centennial Park, along
West Venice Avenue in down-
town Venice near the public
restrooms. Joggers of all abili-
ties and ages are encouraged
to participate in these runs,
which are usually over by 7

in Venice, always use a train-
ing partner. Not only does
this increase safety, it also
makes training more enjoy-
able. In the absence of a train-
ing partner, always tell some-
one which route you will be
taking and what time you
expect to return.
Run defensively: Don't
assume all road-users know
about the "pedestrian has
right-of-way" rule. Many of
them don't.
, Lose the jewelry: Another
crime prevention tip here.
The only accessory one needs
is a wristwatch with a stop-
watch function.'
Carry ID: iwaNys carry
some form of identification in
case of an accident or med-
ical emergency. If you are
away from home on a trip,


a.m. Distances and pace vary
based on a person's ability.
Monday runs are a hill
workout running repeats,
across Hatchett Creek Bridge.
Wednesday are a 5.5-mile
tempo run, while Friday has
the distance group leaving at
5 a.m. and a 6.5-mile or less
group leaving just after 6 a.m.
Also, receive regular e-mail
updates on Venice training
runs, road races and other
running news. Just send an e-
mail to jandrews@venicegon-
dolier.com.


make a note of the address
where you are staying.
Keep right: Always use
the right-hand side so that
faster walkers, runners and
cyclists can easily pass. If
you're running with, one or
more people, don't hog the
path and block people from
passing.
Leave the walkman at
home: That way you will be
alert to any potential dangers,
be it a dog, a fast-approach-
ing car or the sound of other
people around you.

ARC is a coalition of ani-
mal %welfare organizations
that focuses its efforts on
spaLing and neutering. ARC's'
mission is to end the killing of
adoptable dogs and cats in
Sarasota and Manatee
Counties and to promote and
support programs involving
mutually beneficial relation-
ships between people and
companion animals.
Uncontrolled breeding
among dogs and cats has led
to an over-population crisis of
astounding nationwide pro-
portions. Nlore than 4,000
dogs and cats are euthanized
each year in Sarasota County.
ARC aims to substantially
decrease the number of shel-
tered, abandoned, and eutha-
nized animals with an afford-
able spa\! neuter program.
ARC provides low or no-
cost spays and neuters for
income-eligible families. By
ustng a mobile clinic, its ser-
\ices are more accessible to
counry\-ide residents. The
Mobile Spay/Neuter Clinic
has locations in North Port.
Venice and Englewood, as%
well as three northern loca-
tions in Sarasota County and
three locations in NManatee,
County.
Appointments must. be
scheduled in advance. Please
call 957-1955, Ext. 5.
