Pushy salesman ends up in jail


He held a Venice woman and her diabetic
son virtual prisoners for four hours while trying


to sell her a vacuum clear


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

Did you hear the one
about the door-to-door ped-
dler and the street-savvy
mother who quite possibly,
saved herself and her family
from harm?
"1 told him several times to
get out of my house," Sharon
(did not want her last name
used) said. about the man
who tried desperately for
nearly four hours to sell her a


Kirby vacuum cleaner. "He
wanted my credit card and I
wasn't about to give it to him."
The woman's husband was
there when the man came to
their house, but left to go to
work.
Then, two men, working
sometimes together, held
Sharon and her son virtual
prisoners in their own home
for almost four hours trying
to sell her the Kirby..
Only one of the men was
identified.


Short version
Long story short, the
woman managed to get out of
her house and drive to
the sheriff's office in South
Venice. Detectives followed
her back to her house and
arrested one of the alleged
scam artists who was still
hanging around.
"You bet I was scared,"
Sharon said. "They wouldn't
give me any identification
and after about two hours, I
didn't know what they might
want."
The arrested man is iden-
dified as Claude Nlooney. 26.
of Bradenton. His last cur-
rent address is the Sarasota
County Jail. Mooney was


arrested on a warrant charg-
ing him with violating his
probation.
Mooney was on probation
for cocaine distribution and
possession of a controlled
substance. He has not been
charged in connection with
the vacuum cleaner incident.
Long version
Sharon said a group of
about eight people, including
one well-dressed, attractive
young woman, was working
the area in Venice Gardens
about 3 p.m. Nov. 14.
"She came to the door and
said she and her friends were
selling a cleaning product
and I thought it might be a tile


cleaner, and my tile needed
cleaning." she said. "Then
about a half hour later, a
man came in and said they
were selling Kirby vacuum
cleaners."
Sharon told them she
wasn't interested. She would
repeat that "at least 50 times"
throughout the long ordeal,
she said.
"He said, 'Oh, yes you are.
you need this' and started
showing me how it works,"
Sharon said. "He started
doing all the carpets even
after I told him right away I
wasn't interested."
Meanwhile. she tried to
humor the man.

CORRESPONDENT I

Residents of the Bay Point
and Shore Road neighbor-,
hoods in neighborhoods will
learn the bad. news about
Sarasota County's plan to
build water lines to their
homes at a meeting Dec. 13:
Construction bids have come,
in more than 75 percent high-
er than original estimates.
Two hundred-twenty lots
on Shore Road and 495 on
Bay Point are affected by the
unexpected rise in costs,
according to the county
Public Works department.
Estimates mailed to the
715 homeowners last April
anticipated the cost per lot to
range from $3,000 to $4,000.
The new estimates range
from $6,100 to $7,400. That
was determined by dividing
the number of lots into the
total construction costs of
$4,361,500 to $5,291,000
Increased costs of asphalt,
piping and oil received most
of the blame for the increase;

according to Linda Larsen of
the department.
She told the Nokomis
Center Revitalization Advi-
sory Committee at its Nov. 30
meeting that the costs are
locked in for 90 days. She said
there could be an opportuni-
ty to rebid contracts. But she
expressed skepticism that
lower bids could be expected
from the three contractors-
that had submitted bids.
Unavoidable
Responding to a depart-
ment survey in 2003, resi-
dents of the two neighbor-
hoods agreed to create a sep-
arate tax district. They ex-
pressed willingness to pay for
the water lines they desired.
,Other costs to homeown-
ers have not changed, accord-
ing to the department. They
include a water capacity fee
of $2,720 (the county will
finance it for 20 years at 3 per-
cent interest). The water

Sarasota to look at Myakka River's future


Have you seen the track of
Hurricane Epsilon? It looks
like instructions on how to tie
a knot.
This after-season oddity
has all the directional stability
of a carpet-cleaning robot that
bumps into things and turns
away.
Epsilon is cleaning up the
Atlantic, in a way, sucking up
heat and funneling it into a
cold upper atmosphere. That's
essential especially since
we're warming up the lower
atmosphere and oceans.
The problem is called glob-
al warming and we all con-
tribute to it. A conference in
Canada now will try to define
what we should do.
Maybe the phrase "cool it"

A bit of old Florida might
be returning along the banks
of the Myakka River.
Sarasota County commis-
sioners will be briefed in
detail Tuesday on a five-year,
$1 million plan to restore
40,000 of land to its natural
state.


The 40,000 acres, com-
monly referred to as Myakka
Island, includes the Myakka
River State Park, the T. Mabry
Carlton Jr. Memorial Reserve,
the county's Pinelands
Reserve and the Myakka
Prairie, owned by the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District, better
known as Swiftmud.
The project includes con-


trolled burns, which are part
of Southwest Florida's natural
cycle. According to a report to
commissioners, nearly a good
portion of the upland habitat
depend upon a one to three-
year cycle of burning.
The plan also calls for
removing exotic plant species
and chopping down dense
saw-palmettos to let other
native plants reestablish
Themselves. Other improve-
ments will help to restore


more natural flows .of
stormwater into the Myakka.
The area is rich with
wildlife. Its numerous wet-
lands provide habitat for a
variety of wading birds and
other wildlife. The report sug-
gests that as the county devel-
ops, it will become more
.important to maintain the
natural habitats.
The report specifically
points out how the restora-
tion project will benefit the

Thumbs down for North Port hospital


Both certificate of need applications are recom-
mended for denial by a state hearing officer, but
the state will make the final decision.


BYANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER


City commissioners are
upset because they feel that
the city's needs were ignored
by the judge who denied
North Port's request for a hos-
pital.
Both Universal Health
Services, the city's choice, and
Health Management Associ-
ates, owner of Venice Re-
gional Medical Center, Faw-
cett Memorial and Engle-
wood Community hospitals,'
were seeking a certificate of
need for a facility in North
Port.
On Friday, city commis-
sioner Dick Lockhart had
only read about one-third of
the 96-page report from the
State of Florida Division of
Administrative Hearings rec-
ommending both applica-
tions be rejected.
Lockhart said one factor
that should have been con-


sidered was entirely over-
looked.
"In the third of the report
I've read, I didn't detect any
consideration of how long it
takes to get to the (other near-
by) hospitals. All the judge
considered was population,"
he said of the T. Kent
Wetherell II's decision. "It's
not the distance to other hos-
pitals, it's no, population, it's
the time it takes to get there
(from North Port). It would
appear that was totally disre-
garded. And at this time of
year, our traffic doubles."
The numbers
Lockhart noted other cities
with lower populations than
North Port have hospitals,
and it only takes a little bit of
research to prove his point.
In Polk County, the cities of
Bartow and Winter Haven,
both of which have popula-
tions less than 30,000, have
their own hospitals. Each city


is less than 20 miles away
from Lakeland, which has a
projected 2005 population of
90,697. Lakeland has its own
hospital, too.
The state report cites three
different estimates docu-
menting North Port's 2004
population as either 32,487,
35,721 or 39,662. And it states
"there has been a steady pop-
ulation growth in the city of
North Port since 2000 ... and
the growth is projected to
continue over the applicable
planning horizon."
Yet North Port's size and
population apparently still do
not justify the building of a
hospital.
The city reported more
than 4,000 new homes built
in North'Port last year and
3,000 in 2004.
"The judge didn't accept
the data given by the city's
planning department," said
City Attorney Rob Robinson
of the 96-page document
from Wetherell. "The judge
wrote his recommendation as
if neither CON would be
granted. However, he added
to the list that if one was


granted, they (the hospital
applicant) should do the fol-
lowing things."
Disgusted
Robinson said the two
applicants have 15 days to
submit objections to the deci-
sion. A final decision will be
made by the the Agency for
Health Care Administration
in Tallahassee in 30 days. That
decision can be appealed in
court.
Commissioner Vanessa
Carusone, who has only
skimmed the document, is
"disgusted" by the judge's rul-
ing.
"Somebody paid someone
off, and you can quote me,"
she said. "Where are they get-
ting their information?
"I feel a lot of this boils
down to the moratorium on
building permits. It was a
rumor, something that the
Growth Committee was only
considering, and just in the
area of Toledo Blade
Boulevard. It had nothing to
do with the rest of the city."
Commission Vice
Chairwoman Barbara Gross


SUN FILE PHOTO
Residents signed letters and sent them to Tallahassee last year
in hopes of getting a North Port hospital. Last week a judge
denied the public's request.


was equally upset by the
judge's ruling.
"I just can't imagine how
he could refuse it," she said. "I
don't understand his reason-
ing."
Carusone also thought
that the city shouldn't give up.


"I know there is an appeals
process, and there is an
appeals officer, and his name
is Gov. Jeb Bush," she said.
"And if all 50,000 of our resi-
dents and there are 50,000
of us have to go camp out
in his yard, we will."

Osprey committee

to consider its options


BY GERALDA. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


Appropriate incentives for
developers to make certain
they create public access to
the waterfront has been the
objective of the Osprey Re-
vitalization Committee since
last January.
Month after month, in their
regular meetings, the commit-
tee has wrestled with stan-
dards and how to establish
them for a 14-acre tract of land
between Bay Street south to
the Hidden Bay condomini-
um community on the west
side of U.S. 41.
A proposed rezoning to
allow development of a 5.5-
acre site introduced 11
months ago initiated the com-
mittee's struggle. How, com-
mittee members wondered,
could prospective developers
be persuaded to give residents
access to fishing and boating
activities?
Specialists in Sarasota
County departments have
appeared before the commit-
tee each month, and ex-
plained different approaches
to creating a balance of what
developers want and what
else the community wants.
The committee is advisory.
It cannot establish the neces-
sary standards. But its recom-
mendations could be incorpo-
rated in an amended Osprey
Revitalization Plan.
Suggestions by zoning offi-
cials, development coordina-
tors, the county's design
administrator, a specialist on
affordable housing and a
zoning regulator have been
presented to. the eight-mem-
ber committee. They have
dealt with architectural style,
maintenance of roadways,
fishing piers and boat ramps,
mixed-use zoning require-
ments and density of pro-
posed buildings.
A surge .
Code Enforcement Officer
Martin Duran of the, county
planning and development,
services closed out the
parade of specialists recent-
ly. He told the committee
about the impact of storm
surge zones on proposed


development.
Following a hurricane sea-
son in which three of 26
storms reached Category 5
strength, with sustained
winds of more than 155 miles
an hour, storm surge has been
uppermost in the minds of
county planners.
Duran told the committee
that proposed buildings on
the waterfront, within what
are called velocity zones,
would require 13-foot-long
pilings driven into an engi-
neered foundation to secure
them. Buildings could be no
higher than 35 feet above the
pilings.
Although single-family
homes are allowed, velocity
zones are usually limited to
recreation areas, marinas
and beaches, Duran said.
The restrictions are recent,
brought about by coastal
damage caused by hurricanes.
A small rental home on
Main Street and a formerly
abandoned house appear to
be the only properties in a
wind velocity zone described
by Duran as at risk from a 100-
year storm. He defined that as
one in which 10 inches of rain
fall in 24 hours.
Wait and see
Crystal Allred, a county
planner who assists the com-
mittee, said she and col-
leagues in the county plan-
ning services department will
gather later this month to
brainstorm options the com-
mittee needs to consider. Next
month, they will be presented
to the committee, which will
then meet with owners of
properties in the 14-acre area.
They include duplex hous-
ing, rental apartments, single-
family homes, the Spanish
Pointe Marina Grille on Bay-
view Avenue, a rowing club
training facility and eight
vacant lots.
The petitioner, meanwhile,
has, ,taken a, "wait-and-see
position,'m acoording-to'Shaton
Tarman, a land planner with
Steven M. Houghton, consult-
ing engineers, acting as the
agent.

Venice sends county planner packing


The unannounced appearance by Sarasota
County's new planning manager before
the Venice Planning Commission to oppose
an annexation ruffled plenty of feathers.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


Scott Heinig attended his
first Venice Planning Commis-
sion meeting Tuesday, and he
probably hopes it'll be a long
time before his next one.
Sarasota County's new
planning manager, on the job
for just a month, was sent by
county commissioners to ask
Venice to delay annexing
about 25 acres of property
along Laurel Road between
Laurel Nokomis School and
Pinebrook Road. The annex-
ation is being challenged by
the Sorrento Ranches Home-
owners Association, which is
in the county and borders the
S&J Properties land.
Showing up unannounced
caused more problems than
Heinig's actual request.
"(Heinig) .was justifiably
chastised for his appearance
and insinuation that the city
of Venice is inept at land-use
planning and development
review," City Manager Marty
Black wrote in an e-mail to
County Administrator Jim Ley,
sent before the meeting was
even over.
"I would request that in
the future, you ask county
staff to exercise some profes-
sional courtesies and let their
counterparts know before
they make a formal appear-
ance before one of Venice's
appointed or elected boards
in the future. His approach left
a great deal to to desire and
certainly did not set a colla-
borative tone."
By a 6-0 vote, planning


5.5-acre site and 11 two-story
retail units with apartments
on the second floor along U.S.
41...The retail -units,were, to
be about 1,500-square feet.
Clusters of condominiums-
were to be spaced from the
water's edge to the .center of
the property.
From its introduction, the
proposed development has
raised concerns among com-


commission recommended
approval and sent it on to city
council for a final vote. Benny
Weaver did not attend the
meeting.
Municipal island
During the meeting itself,
planning commission mem-
bers each took turns criticiz-
ing Heinig and the county.
Planning commissioner
Jim Myers said he needed to
go back to his days as an Army
soldier 50-plus years ago to
find strong enough language.
"I'm appalled at this, and I
don't even know if that's strong
enough," Myers said.
Heinig said his goal was
not to oppose the annexation.
Instead, the, county wants city
staff to delay continued
annexations because a muni-
cipal island is being created
along the western side of
Pinebrook Road. About 70
acres of land is connected to
the city only because Venice
jumped across a stormwater
pond on 5 acres of county-
owned property at Pinebrook
and Kilpatrick roads.
This December 2003 an-
nexation,- now known, as the
46 acres ofVilla Lago, stretches
north to connect with the
S&J land that is adjacent to
Laurel Road and the school.
Sarasota County's concern
is how many properties along
the eastern side of Pinebrook
Road including R&F Ranch
Road and Curry Lane are
being closed in by city limits.
This sets up duplication of
municipal services such as law
enforcement, garbage collec-


mittee members that the
restaurant could be lost along
with water's edge walking
:paths.
i Fewer ithanf"hf "lte 'AQ

the original plan are involved
in the proposed develop-
ment. County planners had
originally considered it nec-
essary to revitalize the entire
14-acre tract.


tion and drinking water,
which the county would pre-
fer to avoid, Heinig said.
"If the rest of these parcels
would annex, we could be in
support of (Tuesday's annexa-
tions)," Heinig said after the
meeting. "That was the intent,
to open up the talk. Obviously,
it wasn't well received."
Neighborhood opposition
All of this does little to help
the plight of the Sorrento
Ranches Homeowners


rento Ranches, has formally
challenged the Villa Lago
annexation. Lobeck and. as-
sociation president Robert
Burrus have repeatedly said
they cannot appeal because
they're outside of city limits.
The city manager, however,
said he believes Sorrento
Ranches does have the legal
right to appeal the Villa Lago
annexation. Black suspects it
hasn't because the court chal-
lenge loser would have to pay
the legal bills for both sides.


"(Sarasota County Planning Manager Chris Heinig)
was justifiably chastised for his appearance and
insinuation that the city of Venice is inept at land-
use planning and development review."
- City Manager Marty Black on Heinig's surprise appearance at
Venice Planning Commission on Tuesday.


Association as it attempts to
protect its idyllic community
of one home per 5 acres
against city development
along its borders. Villa Lago
covers the entire eastern
boundary, and the S&J annex-
ation would border about, a
third of its northern boundary.
Attorney Dan Lobeck, who
represents Sorrento Ranches,.
maintains that the 2003 an-
nexation of Villa Lago wvas not
legal because no part of its
border was contiguous -
meaning most of it touching
- to existing city limits.
And because of that, Tues-
day's proposed annexations
should not be allowed, he
argued.
"It's an illegal annexation
building on illegal annexa-
tions. ... If it's not contiguous,
it's not legal," Lobeck said
after the meeting.
No group, not even Sor-


And Black believes Sor-
rento Ranches would lose the
annexation challenge, espe-
cially since the county wrote a
letter dated Sept. 25, 2003,
stating that it supports annex-
ation of Villa Lago into city
limits. The annexation helped
settle a lawsuit against the
county by the previous Villa
Lago owners for taking land to
widen Pinebrook Road.
Heinig failed to mention
the county helped create this
"municipal island," some-
thing that wasn't lost on the
city manager. ,
"The only time we ever got
a letter of support (from the
county) was this one, and now
they're questioning that,"
Black said after the meeting,
shaking his head.

BONE SHRINKAGE WITH DENTURES
Even though your dentures fit beautifully when new, they are likely to
become loose in time. The principal reason is shrinkage, or resorption,
of the bone support them. When all the teeth are lost, the bone that
I formerly supported them has less function. It then gradually resorbs,
but not necessarily uniformly, especially if teeth were lost at different
times. The bone may then be bumpy and even, making the denture
both less stable and less comfortable.
As the bone resorbs (particularly under a lower denture), more
pressure will be transferred through the denture base which can J
hasten the shrinking process and irritate the nerves which were
previously well protected. The resulting pain while chewing can be
severe.
It is sometime possible to smooth an uneven ridge surgically, or to q
build up a severely resorbed ridge with grafts of natural or artificial [
bone. Since resorption is likely to continue, dentures may have to be
periodically relined or even completely replaced.

School board to.



rein in school fees


Ramping up


Principals and teachers would get new guidelines
under a draft policy designed to put restraints on
runaway student fees.


BY GREG GILES
*STAFF WRITER


When Sarasota County
School Board members
learned an elementary school
was charging $350 per stu-
dent to pay for tuxedos as a
prerequisite to join the
chorale, and some teachers
were asking students to pur-
chase classroom supplies,
they held a lively workshop to
discuss how to put a stop to it.
The board's response --
draft a new policy that holds
principals and teachers more
accountable for students fees
and supplies. But they tabled
a draft before the board on
Tuesday because the new
high-tech eAgenda wasn't
working and board members
did not have paper copies of
the draft available to word-
smith.
The policy will come
before the board again at its
Jan. 6 meeting, when it will
vote whether to advertise the
new policy.
Limits
The board wants to put a
limit on fees, but not saddle
schools with an inflexible pol-
icy that would stifle creativity,
said board member Kathy
Kleinlein.
"We found student fees
were getting out of hand. We
wanted an understanding of
the (limits) of fees, and about
the reasonable uses of fees for
the classroom," Kleinlein
said.
Board members found
postings at some Wal-Mart
stores (a ,suggested list of
school supplies for parents to
buy their children) included
classroom supplies like mark-
ers for white boards and


reams of paper supplies
more appropriately paid from
school budgets.
"There were enough.
teachers asking students to
purchase classroom sup-
plies," said Kleinlein, that the
board felt it needed to make
school principals and teach-
ers more accountable.
Kleinlein said the district
found some principals didn't
think the issue was impor-
tant. In some cases, the dis-
trict found teachers either
hadn't read school guidelines,
where they existed, or the fees
were not being monitored by
the school principal.
"This had us very upset,"
Kleinlein said. "I've gotten e-
mails from parents. This is
how I found about about (the
tuxedos)."
Fee waivers, postings
The draft includes a brief
policy statement and guide-
lines on how schools may
assess limited fees.
All instructional materials-
required for courses will con-
tinue to be provided free of
charge to students.
Teachers will be required
to run their .fee requests by
the principal first, according
to the draft standard pro-
cedure, but not always prac-
ticed. Each principal will
approve a list of supplies
required for a grade level,
team, academy or individual
class. Teachers may not
require supplies or materials
that aren't approved by the
principal, reads the policy.
A list of all student fees,
describing the amount of;
each fee and its purpose, will
have to be compiled and pub-'
lished by each school, accord-
ing to the new rules. Parents


will be informed of the fee
associated with specific
extracurricular activities and
how to apply for a waiver.
"If parents tell us they can't
afford it, we will accommo-
date them," Kleinlein said.,
"There needs to be a limit,
especially at the elementary
level."
More rules
The draft lists 14 guidelines
for educators to follow.
Among them is a, rule that
allows schools and classes to
request donations for addi-
tional supplies, but notes
they must be voluntary and in
no way should students be
pressured to provide the
donation.
Another requires schools
to maintain an inventory of
calculators that students may
rent or borrow for the dura-
tion of math or science cours-
es.
The rules continue .to
authorize schools to collect
fees as a condition for partici-
pation in nonacademic activ-
ities, including sports.
Community service
The rules attempt to make
affordability a nonissue for
students. Waivers are avail-
able for those who request it,
but another alternative to
paying a school fee may carry
a stigma of its own.
One of the proposed
guidelines says students
unable to pay fees may be
required to perform commu-
nitv service at the school site.
"It is incumbent upon the
teacher and principal to make
every effort to be sure no stu-
dent in denied the right to par-
ticipate in trips and other
enrichment activities because
of a lack of funds or inability to
pay" reads the policy

adjacent area. It consists of
constructing approximately
5,950 linear feet of 5-foot wide
sidewalks on Old Venice
Road. The work includes
pavement markings, signage,
driveway restoration, utility
coordination and adjust-


In addition to vaccination,
the risk of contracting respi-
ratory infections can be
reduced by following a few
simple steps:
*. Stay healthy: get plenty of
rest, healthy foods, fluids and
exercise.
Wash your hands thor-
oughly and frequently with
soap and warm water. (Anti-
bacterial liquid hand gels are
useful if soap and water are
unavailable.)
Cover your mouth when
you cough.
Stay home when you are
sick, and keep children home
from school and daycare
when they are sick.
Travelers are advised to
follow these tips and visit
www.cdc.gov for more specif-
ic information.
For more information, call
the Sarasota County Health
Department's Flu Shot Infor-
mation Line at (941) 861-


ments, and traffic control.
The contract calls for sub-
stantial completion of the
work by Frederick Derr &
Company Inc. within 180
days.
Although the Board unani-
mously approved the con-
tract, Commissioner Jon
Thaxton said he didn't believe
many students walked or
rode bicycles to the only
school in the area ~ Pine View
School, a high school for the
gifted. He suggested the
money might better have
been spent in providing side-
walks near Westfield Square

"I figured if he wanted to
clean the whole house, let
him, what the heck," she said.
"He was working so hard,
sweating."
Sharon said she dared not
call the police for fear of
putting her 13-year old dia-
betic son in jeopardy.
Just saying no
Sharon said the man kept
telling her how much she
needed the vacuum and that
they would work out a plan
she could afford even if it was
$1 a week.
"He kept asking me for my
credit card number, and I
kept telling him no," Sharon


said. "That's what he really
wanted, my credit card num-
ber."
Sharon tried using the
phone but said the man didn't
want her to. She finally con-
vinced him she had to call
her son's doctor and she
talked to the nurse for about
10 minutes.
"Then he told me to get off
the phone, he didn't want me
on phone," Sharon said.'
Smart move
Sharon said her husband
came home after about 5 p.m.
"They were still there and
he just sat and listened to
them about the vacuum,"


Sharon said. "I finally said I
was going out and the guy
said 'Oh, no you're not, my
car is blocking yours and
you are not going any-
where.' "
Sharon told him again she
was going and she would
push his car out of the drive
with hers if she had to. He
finally moved his car.
That's when she got the
license number of the man's
blue van and drove to the
sheriff's office.

GUNTHER from Page 1A


ican audiences with his in-
credible rapport with ani-,
mals, while introducing a new
style of animal training based
on mutual respect and posi-
tive reinforcement, forever
changing the standards of
animal training while teach-
ing to love and respect all
living things...."
A little cloud
Five members of People
for the Ethical Treatment of
Animals protested the dedi-
cation ceremony, holding
signs saying "Gunther Beat
Animals." They didn't try to
disrupt it, however, and
wouldn't have had much
luck if they had: Their request
to attend the public ceremo-
ny on publicly-owned prop-
erty was met with a resound-
ing "No" from Police Chief
Jim Hanks.
Not only was the answer
no, but the reason Hanks gave
was something usually only a
parent tells a child.
"Because I said so," Hanks
was heard to tell the protest-
ers.
A permit was -not needed
to gather, and the PETA
members cited their Consti-
tutional rights to express an
opinion about the dedication
of a statue in honor of circus'
animal trainer Gunther
Gebel-Williams at the county-
ownedVenice Train Depot.
However, everyone knew
- especially the 25 uni-
formed and undercover law


enforcement personnel the
PETA group was out to criti-
cize the famous Venice resi-
dent. So their Constitutional
rights ended on the other side
of the railroad tracks, roughly
50-100 feet away from a
crowd of about 300 people.
"It's your Constitutional
right to stand right here,"
Hanks was heard telling PETA
spokesperson Elizabeth Pa-
rowski. "And I'm going to
stand right with you. ... You
can consult your lawyers
and sue me later."
Without incident
The ceremony finished
without incident, and City
Manager Marty Black compli-
mented the PETA group for
maintaining decorum.
"(PETA) presented their
message and were not disrup-
tive," Black said. "Our desire
to avoid disruptions in Venice
was acute. We did not want
a national occurrence to
happen in Venice because of
this group."
Parowski was disappointed
their opinion could only be
expressed from a distance,
and maintains that Gebel-
Williams abused animals
while training them for the
Ringling Bros. and Barnum &*
Bailey Circus. '
Many professional and
Venice-area friends say PETA
is wrong, and that the late
animal trainer paved the way
to improving circus animal
treatment.

adjustment. It would have
raised the pay for individual
school board members to
$35,537.
The board voted down the
motion, and instead adopted
a second motion to continue
their annual salary at $33,973.
Public spectacle
Without exception, every
school board member ex-
pressed frustration with the
Legislature at having to vote
on the issue.
"This is their way of getting
back at us," said board mem-
ber Frank Kovach.
"The vast majority of
school boards in Florida do
this (adopt the FSBA pay
levels). It doesn't require us to
make a public spectacle out
of it."
"We need to take school
boards out of the exemption,"
said member Laura Benson.
"This is a ridiculous conver-
sation for us to go through
every year. It's a punitive
measure and needs to be
reversed."
Todd asked Benson, who
serves as legislative liaison
for the board, to continue
lobbying the Legislature to'


PETA continues attempt-
ing to erect its own statue,
"Elly Wanna Be Free," at
Venice Train Depot. Designed
by famed New Yorker cover
artist and cartoonist Harry
Bliss, the PETA statue shows
a shackled and crying ele-
phant and stands about 12
feet tall one foot taller than
the Gebel-Williams statue on
its base.
Sarasota County govern-
ment, the property owner,
gets to decide whether the
statue will be put up. When
asked for comment two
weeks ago, County Admin-
istrator Jim Ley said policy is
for county-owned facilities
to have no more than one
piece of public art.
The Gebel-Williams statue
is Venice Train Depot's allot-
ted piece, so even if the ele-
phant were donated for PETA,
it would require commission-
er approval, Ley said.
"I am not aware of any
other facility where we have
placed two pieces of art," Ley
said. "They (county commis-
sioners) also would have to
decide if they wanted it (as a
donation)."

Contract awards for the
entire $7 million-plus project
were expected to be made
next month by the county.
The project was expected to
get under way in April 2006.
It was to be dovetailed in-


eliminate the exemption. The
board included that position
in its legislative agenda for the
second year. FSBA also sup-
ports repealing the exemp-
tion.
Benson said the measure
was pushed by then Speaker
of the House Tom Feeny,
who she said admits he is
not a friend of education.
Feeny wanted to eliminate
school board salaries, Benson
said, but not those of legisla-
tors.
"We just want to be treated
like all the other elected offi-
cials," she said.
"Make all elected officials
exempt or include us all,"
Todd said.
Both Kovach and Benson
voted in favor of the raise.
Kovach said those against
the raise could donate a por-
tion of it back to the district
if they had a serious problem
with it. Benson said she voted
in favor of the FSBA. recom-

Kovach have voted in favor.
The swing vote was cast by
John Lewis.
I don't have a problem
with the FSBA-recommended
level," said Lewis, because
elected officials often do
more than they are compen-
sated for. "I based my deci-
sion on the financial situation
of the community ... contin-
uing the 1-mill referendum."
Kleinlein called the vote a
sign of solidarity with the
district's employees.
"I just felt, since school
boards. serve part time, we
should vote down the raise as
a gesture of goodwill and
unity with our beginning
teachers (who make about
the same)," Kleinlein said.
The vote puts the board in
a precarious position, said
Todd. "We're asking you to
go into your.pocket (through
the referendum). We are not
going into your pocket for
ourselves. We believe in being
frugal with taxpayer dollars."

to Bruce Dillon, chairman of

"We've sought these

had little luck," he -said.
"Many of us are so close to

Authorities oppose Midnight Pass dredging


On Sept. 13, inspection team members toured the
proposed project site and filed reports. All of
them reference habitat destruction and emphati-
cally oppose a dredging project.


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


Federal authorities have
tentatively notified Sarasota
County they will oppose the
issuance of permits for a pro-
ject to restore Midnight Pass
between Casey Key and Siesta
Key because of the adverse
environmental impacts it
would cause to Little Sarasota
Bay and adjacent beaches.
On Nov. 10, U.S. 'Army
Corps of Engineers spokes-
man Mike Nowicki notified
the county, "The National
Marine Fisheries Service
made an essential fish habitat
recommendation that states
authorization for the project
shall not be granted."
The letter to Coastal Re-
sources Manager Laird Wre-
ford was one of several au-
thored by federal officials
who conducted a Sept. 13
inspection of the former Mid-
night Pass area and conclud-
ed an inlet restoration project
could not be justified.
"I am advising you that the
proposed work will result in
substantial and unacceptable
adverse impacts to an aquatic
resource of national impor-
tance, and the project is not
approvable at this time," U.S.
Environmental Protection
Agency Regional Administra-
tor J.I. Palmer, Jr. wrote in a
Nov. 3 letter.
Ronald J. Mikulak, an
Environmental Protection
Agency wetlands section
chief who was part of the
Sept. 13 inspection team,
concluded the "EPA believes
that this project does not
comply with (U.S. Clean
Water Act) guidelines," in an
Oct. 11 letter.

National Marine Fisheries
Service regional administra-
tor, wrote, "We find the pro-
posed project and lack of mit-
igation measures unaccept-
able," in a Nov. 9 letter that
echoes the conclusions of
other agency officials.
On Oct. 5, National Marine
Fisheries Service assistant re-
gional administrator Miles M.
Croom made it clear in a let-
ter to the Army Corps that
"authorization to dredge 22
acres of estuarine habitats"
and use the material for
beach restoration projects
"shall not be granted."
'Routine'
All of the letters directly
address either destruction of
endangered sea turtle nesting
areas on what is now called
Midnight Beach or refuge
habitat for fish and shellfish
in Little Sarasota Bay. They
also oppose dredging sub-
merged aquatic vegetation
and mangrove habitats.
Crabtree's letter directly
references marine species
such as gulf menhaden, gag
grouper, Spanish mackerel,
snook, tarpon, sea trout, blue
crab, gray snapper and pink
shrimp, which reportedly
thrive in the protected area
where a new inlet would be
cut between the two islands.
Karyn Erickson, an envi-
ronmental engineer and the
. county's Midnight Pass
restoration consultant, sug-
gested the letters from federal
officials are "routine for a
large and complex project,"
and that proponents should
"take a deep breath and wait a
few months" for additional
news.
"This involves water quali-
ty, improved bay flushing,


changes in nutrient levels and
sand management," she said.
"So many agencies have to
reach an agreement on which
design is most practical, and
whether it minimizes envi-
ronmental impacts."
According to Erickson, the
busy hurricane season forced
a delay in the Army Corps'
evaluation process, and the
project was only recently
posted for comments by
agencies such as the Environ-
mental Protection Agency
and National Marine Fish-

"I am advising you
that the proposed
work will result in
substantial and unac-
ceptable adverse
impacts to an aquatic
resource of national
importance, and the
project is not approv-
able at this time,"
U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency
Regional Administrator J.I.
Palmer, Jr.

series Service.
"We lost about eight
months during which the
state of Florida got ahead of
the Army Corps," she said.
"We've had' to slow the
process because we don't
want to do everything twice.
The comments were made
without the federal agencies
having the design documents
the state has."
DEP cool too
This is not the first warning
signal Sarasota County has
received that its joint permit
application will be opposed
by federal and state authori-
ties. The Florida Department
of Environmental Protection


has also cautioned it may not
approve the project.
On June 20, Department
Secretary Colleen M. Castille
signed an order that will
remove Little Sarasota Bay
and many other area water
bodies from an impaired
waters list maintained by the
U.S. Environmental Protec-
tion Agency, if federal officials
concur.
Based on the order, state
officials sent the county a fol-
low-up letter that concludes,
"This project does not appear
to meet the requirement that
the reopened inlet will restore
water quality in disturbed
coastal ecosystems to ac-
ceptable departmental water
quality standards .... "
Erickson mailed permit
application copies to federal
and state officials last Nov. 24
that describe the dredging
project and provide an exten-
sive justification for it.
"It will take two or three
months to get a response
back to the Army Corps," she
said. '"At this point, the Army
Corps has taken a very gener-
al and broad look at the
impacts it sees. It does not
mention acres of beneficial
impact to water quality and
sea grass growth."
History
The application seeks per-
mission to remove 360,000
cubicyards of sandfrom the for-
mer inlet, an adjacent sand trap
arid a tidal channel that would
connect with the Gulf
Intracoastal Waterway. It esti-
mates 330,000 cubic yards
would be suitable for place-
ment on nearby beaches.
Erickson has successfully
dealt with federal and state
opposition before. In 2002, she
consulted with New Hanover
County, N.C., to relocate and
restore Mason Inlet without the
use of seawalls, rocks or other
hardened structures, and pro-
vide a management plan to
keep it open.

board meeting


STAFF REPORT

The Southwest Florida
Water Management District,
completed a two-day meet-
ing of its governing board last
week to discuss a full agenda
of items relating to the man-
agement district.
The board met in Sarasota
on Wednesday and in Arcadia
on Thursday.
In Arcadia, the board com-
bined its meeting with a pub-
lic hearing. Along with items
not approved at Wednesday's
meeting, the board reviewed
the "Southern Water Use Cau-
tion Area Recovery Strategy,"
including the Shell Creek and
Prairie Creek watersheds
management plan.
This plan was developed
through the collaborative
efforts of the diverse group of
stakeholders to improve
water quality in the Shell and
Prairie Creek watersheds, the
primary source of Punta
Gorda's drinking water.
Stakeholders include govern--
ment agencies, citrus growers
and agricultural organiza-
tions.
The plan identifies projects
and management practices to
improve poor water quality,
due to elevated concentra-
tions of chloride, total dis-
solved solids and specific
conductance.
What's Swiftmud?
The district is a regional
agency of the state arid is
charged with managing and
protecting water resources of
the region by balancing and
improving water quality,
flood control, natural systems
and water supply.
The district's boundaries


extend from central Florida to
Lake Okeechobee, from Fort
Myers to Fort Pierce, and
south through the sprawling
Everglades to the Florida Keys
and Florida Bay. An 11-mem-
ber governing board estab-
lishes policies for the entire
16-county district.
The governing board rep-
resents a wide cross section of
interests, including agricul-
tural, recreational, business,
industrial, urban, rural and
the public. Governing board
members are unpaid volun-
teers appointed by the gover-
nor and confirmed by the
Florida Senate. They serve
four-year terms.
Each member also serves
as the ex-officio chair of a
basin board. The governing
board also appoints the dis-
trict's executive director, who
directs all district activities.
The Florida Senate confirms
this candidate.
Governing board members
include: Heidi B. McCree,
chairwoman from Hillsbor-
ough County; Talmadge G.
Rice vice chairman, Pasco
County; Patsy C. Symons, sec-
retary, DeSoto County; Judy
C. Whitehead, treasurer, Her-
nando County; Edward W.
Chance, Manatee County;
Jennifer E. Closshey, Hillsbor-
ough County; Neil Combee,
Polk County; Thomas G.
Dabney II, Sarasota County;
Watson L. Haynes II, Pinellas
County; Janet D. Kovach,
Hillsborough County; and
Todd Pressman, Pinellas
County.
The governing board
employs an executive director
who is charged with the over-
seeing the day-to-day activi-
ties of the district.

OUR VIEW


To rent or not to rent


not to rent


T hat's the decision many Venice area
landlords are making as soaring land
\ values and matching property tax and
insurance rate hikes make selling out to a
developer more and more attractive.
We don't begrudge property owners or de-
velopers the chance to make a profit, but we
can't turn a blind eye to what's being lost in
the process.
There are two issues here, one big and one
huge. We'll address the first one tqday, and
the second one affordable housing -
Friday.
The big issue is the impending death of
the city's Historic Apartment District.
City planner John Nolen, genius that he'
was, dedicated an area to workforce and
rental housing for the people who would staff
the businesses that would make Venice go.
(Not all the people, mind you, but that was
another day, and another editorial.)
That area is bordered by Granada Road,


Harbor Drive, Armada Road and Park
Boulevard, according to the historical mark-
er at John Nolen Park. By 1928, there were 11
apartment buildings along Menendez and
Armada. Most are still operating as rental
housing though not for long, we suspect.
The camel's nose, if you will, is Kymberly's
Court, a four-story, nine-unit condominium
complex that will take up an entire city block,
from Menendez Street to Armada Road along
ParkBoulevard.
The plans for the project are beautiful, and
the apartments being demolished are cin-
der-block structures built in the 1960s and
1970s deemed by the Architectural Review
Board to have no historical value.
Having allowed this inroad, though, the
city has made it more likely that some his-
toric buildings will also fall to the wrecker's
ball, to make way for new ones compatible
with Kymberly's Court.
Kevin Ward, that project's developer, has


just bought an adjoining 30-unit apartment
complex and also owns two adjacent houses.
No doubt those properties will be developed
as well, as Ward has told us there just isn't
enough money in renting units compared to
selling them.
We do see his point. The 14 apartments
Kymberly's Court will replace rent for around
$500 a month, out of which the landlord has
to take his expenses, including the afore-
mentioned insurance and property taxes -
which, by the way, are not subject to the Save
Our Homes cap.
The condos will sell for more than $1 mil-
lion each, with no continuing obligation on,
Ward's part to cut the grass or unstop a
clogged drain.
Talk about your no-brainers. Still...
Venice is justly proud of its heritage as a
Nolen-designed city, and much effort and
money have gone into preserving it. The
apartment district needs a guardian too.


The planning maxim that a property
should be put to its "highest and best use"
doesn't take into account the people who are
being displaced or the loss of a piece of
Venice's history, and city code offers no spe-
cial protection for the area.
At the risk of starting a "feeding frenzy"
before any such regulations are put into
place, council should debate whether the
apartment district should be allowed to van-
ish before our eyes, or whether something
can be done to encourage its preservation.
Like every city, Venice has changed and
grown in many ways over the years. Indeed,
many of us who live here now wouldn't have
moved here but for that fact.
Despite all the change and growth, how-
ever, the city's basic plan has remained true
to Nolen's original vision.
Should a plaque be the only reminder
future generations will have of the apartment
district he envisioned?


Silver linings


in the clouds?


ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST


I asked City Manager
Marty Black for his views on
the recent decisions by city
council to approve, in long9-i
range planning docufiies
the highest residential densi-
ties for several plots in north-
east Venice, near Knights Trail
Road.
Under future land use
plans approved by the city,
about 7,000 residential units
could be built in addition to
commercial and manufactur-
ing facilities.
We also discussed issues
that had been raised by some
neighbors concerning the
annexation of properties on
Laurel Road, at the northwest
corner of Villa Lago. That
action was before the plan-
ning commission, yesterday
(Tuesday). The city is sup-
porting the annexations and
Black spelled out why he felt
they were appropriate.
I am hopeful council will
develop a policy to make
these new large areas an
attractive part of the city, not a
mass of tract housing. Per-
haps an "overlay" district
could be created that would
assure public access, green-
ways and parkland so the new
areas would offer something
of value to the quality of life
for citizens of Venice.
Black said that notion
not specifically an "overlay"
- was not inconsistent with
the city's view of its compre-I
hensive planning.
He said the city would
encourage developers to use
a "planned development dis-
trict" that permits developers
flexibility in exchange for pre-
serving 50 percent of the area
as green space. The primary
incentive for the developers is
additional flexibility.
Black sees this process as
particularly beneficial for,
larger areas in the range of
100 acres and says so far
developers have been posi-
tive toward that approach.
I asked 'about financial
incentives, and Black men-
tioned the possibility of link-
ing PDDs to a community
development district that
allows development in areas
without infrastructure -
roads, water and sewer, and
the like, with those features
paid for through a special tax-
ation process through which


the new homeowners, rather
than the city, pay for improve-
ments over time. One such
proposal is moving through
the city's processes for con-
sideration.
Black mentioned the
Venetian Golf & River Club as
an example of some of things
I suggested, although recog-
nizing that I have expressed
reservations about its appeal.
The developer and the city
agreed on some park and
open space. Ten acres was
deeded to the city for a park.
Another 80 acres along the
Myakka River was established
'as a coYbservation easement
allowing only low-impact use,
such as hiking. Within the
community the developers
set aside from 60 to 70 acres.
for pocket parks
Contrary to some beliefs,
city residents can enter the
VGRC to reach the waterfront
conservation easement, after
identifying themselves at a
gate. The golf course and sim-
ilar facilities are limited to res-
idents or members.
Black and city planners
have also been advocating
developments that allow peo-
ple to move from community
to community without hav-
ing to exit from a gate and
drive to another gated
entrance of the next commu-
nity. He anticipates new road
development in the Knights
Trail area.
Vicki Taylor and John
Moore said in a recent council
meeting that they felt the cur-
rent infrastructure could not
handle the comprehensive
development plans approved
that day. Taylor said the coun-
ty and state had no plans for
road development in that
area on a priority list. Using
community development
districts that tax the new
property owners for those
costs is one strategy antici-
pared.
The city having granted
areas status as "medium"
(maximum) density puts into
motion a strong impetus for
such development. Substan-
tial reduction during the zon-
ing process is, according to
discussions I had last year
with Planning Commission
Chairman John Osmulski,
unlikely after approval in the
.long-range plan.
Black also raised the possi-
bility of workplace or afford-
able housing being a possible
outcome for part of the areas
in question and pointed out
that the city lacks a clear poli-
cy of incentives for such
development..
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice has
purchased 146 acres in the
area, providing up to 1,000
units. Black said the city

We need truth
about torture

Editor:
Over the past several
months, dribs.and drabs have
been reported about secret
jails set up in some European
countries by the CIA.
Captured suspected terrorists
from Iraq and Afghanistan
were shipped there on covert
flights.
The Sun daily., papers
reported Tuesday, Nov. 29 that
the European Union Justice
and Home Affairs commis-
sioner requested information
from the United States
regarding torture jails. Our
government's reply was more

media reports that the CIA set
up these jails in Eastern
European nations.
Why does our government
stonewall the EU request?
The prisons are reported to be
in Poland, Rumania, and
other Soviet-era countries.
The EU is investigating the
charges and intends to pun-
ish the nations involved. The
accused countries have
denied knowledge of the

ters.

Parade just wasn't up to snuff


Disappointing parade. For the first time in five years of
going to the Venice Christmas Parade, I truly am disappointed.
The lights on Venice Avenue were lit with no fanfare, no cheer-
ing as in the past. There was very poor lighting at the Venice-
Harbor Drive corner. We could barely see the performers in the
pre-parade show or the bands in the parade. There were no
portable bathroom facilities as in the past. There were unruly
teens pushing small children to get the candy and then leaving
their paper messes where they dropped them. And, most of all,
where were the young dancers? It certainly brightened my hol-
iday spirit, as a senior citizen where I don't see a lot of children
in my daily goings and comings. Please have them back next
year. Thank you for having the parade, but please try to keep it
up, as in the past it's been done so well.


Wrong idea. How did peo-
ple get the idea that the com-
munity center isn't build to
withstand a Category 3 hurri-
cane? It is in fact built to that
standard and it was done so
with grant money from federal
sources after the bond issue was
passed. There was nothing
mentioned in the bond issue
about building a hurricane cen-
ter at the community center
because nobody thought of it
until the grant money came
later. People need to call the Red
Cross if theywant to knowif and
when that facilitywill be used as
a shelter for storms because
they're the ones who determine
where they're going to put their
manpower and supplies during
emergencies.
Christmas or holiday? I
was downtown in Venice on
Nov.26, at night, and saw a
parade. I don't know if it was a
Christmas parade, a happy hol-
idays parade or what I always
went to that parade as a
Christmas parade. I saw some
signs downtown Venice saying it
was a holiday parade. I guess its
a Christmas parade, but I'm


confused. Ififs aholidayparade,
I guess the ACLU is after us
again.
Parents should pay. I'm
calling after reading the article
in the Gondolier Sun on Nov. 30,
regarding the damage caused
by the skateboarders. Now the
city has put a price tag on it,
$2,500. Iwouldlike to knowwhy
parents can't be held responsi-
ble for damage caused by their
children. This seems to be the
fairest way to do it. I don't see
why the city should have to pay
. for it. These parents that do not
supervise their youngsters need
to ante up for the damage they
cause.
Do your job. What are the
Venice police doing when our


beloved snowbirds are running
through red lights, one right
after the other, and going the
wrong way on one-way streets?
I'll tell you what they're doing.
They're too busy chatting with
each other in the median on
Harbor Drive, at the communi-
ty center and various other
places around the island. Do me
a favor, people of Venice, pro-
gram the Venice Police
Department phone number in
your cell phone, and every time
you see these police cars sitting
around instead of doing their
job, call the captain and com-
plain.
Why leaving? I read in
today's paper that somebody
decided to leave Venice. I was
just wondering, speaking of
leaving, about the empty
storefronts in Jacaranda, Gal-
leria Plaza and Venice Mar-
ketplace. It would be so nice
to see the empty storefronts
go, along with the bad drivers,
the weirdos and the criminals
that come into town this time
of year. Why are the people we
don't want to go leaving, and
the empty storefronts, the
criminals and the weirdos not
leaving? Hmm, real weird sit-
uation here.

DUI may mean return to prison for sex offender !


BYTOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

A convicted Venice sex
offender's recent DUI charge
could send .him back to
prison.
Patrick J. Durbin, 60, 1252
Barbara Drive, Venice, was
charged Oct. 29, the day the
DUI occurred, according to
Florida Department of
Corrections spokeswoman
JoEllyn Rackleff.
"His probation officer per-
formed a warrantless arrest
on Oct. 31, she said. "He is
currently in (Sarasota
County) jail. It is a condition
of his probation that he not
use alcohol to excess."
Durbin's bond is $10,000.


What happens to him next
is up to a judge.
"The judge will determine
whether he will continue on
probation (10 years) or be
sent (back) to prison,"
Rackleff said.
Durbin is scheduled for a
pretrial hearing Dec. 20 on
the misdemeanor DUI
charge.
Several things can happen
at a pretrial hearing.
The defendant may plead
guilty, the case can be set for
trial, or the case can contin-
ued until another conference.
Typically, a case like Durbin's
will be set for second confer-
ence, according to one court
source.
Court documents show


Durbin's probation was vio-
lated by getting the DUI. The
records show an affidavit of
probation violation was filed
Nov. 10.
If the judge sends Durbin
back to prison, it would be for
violating the conditions of his
probation, Rackleff said.
Durbin's immediate past
Durbin began serving a 25-
year prison sentence Feb. 1,
1995, after his conviction on
two counts of sexual battery
on a victim younger 12 years
old. He was released Dec. 12,
2004, just short of nine years
later.
Prison officials said earlier
that Durbin received 20, days
of gain time for each month


served which qualified him
for an early release.
Gain time is time credited
for an inmate's simply behav-
ing himself, staying out of
trouble, not causing any
problems and following all
the rules. Durbin had no dis-
ciplinary problems, accord-
ing to his prison record.
Recently passed laws
mean sex offenders must
serve more of their sentence
and have stricter monitoring
once released., However,
these new laws are not
retroactive. Those who com-
mitted or were convicted of
crimes years ago can still be
released after serving less
than half their sentence.
Prison officials shared law


enforcement's frustrations
about the early release of
dangerous inmates. But, they
said they had to follow the
laws in effect at the time
crimes were committed.
Gain time
Florida Department of
Corrections' officials showed
how Durbin's gain time was
computed.
They said he got 3,000
days lopped off his sentence
(which was 9,125 days) the
moment he walked through
the prison door to begin his
sentence. Then, officials
said, he earned another
2,362 days while he was
there.
Sentencing is always based


on laws in effect at the time of
the crimes. In Durbin's case
the crimes were committed'
Jan. 1, 1987.
After Oct. 1, 1995, the law
stated that inmates must'
serve 85 percent of their sen'
tence. t
Officials said the state used
basic gain time as a means of
solving the prison overcrowds
ing of the 80s. Overcrowding:
was eliminated December:
1994.
There are currently 84,028&
inmates in Florida prisons in
a system capable of holding
about 86,000 prisoners.

CIY NOTES


CITY CALENDAR.


FOP members
approve change
Fraternal Order of Police
members voted to approve a
last-minute change Friday to
a contract they accepted a
month ago and council plans
to vote on Dec. 13.
City Manager Marty Black
said his office had not been
notified as of Tuesday, but
local FOP president Robert
Palmieri said members
approved the change. The
proposed change clearly
states that an officer must be
employed by the city when
the new contract is approved
in order to receive the
retroactive pay raises.
The city manager did say,
however, that union assump-
tions the new rule will apply
to disabled police officers is
not true. A Venice Gondolier
Sun story inside the Dec. 2
edition quoted Palmieri as
saying a former police officer,
injured in the line of duty,
would lose money because of
this.
"We do. not believe that
(new) language precludes
loffieers :who would have
retired because of a disabili-
ty," Black said, adding that it is
his intention to make sure the
disabled officer receives his
retroactive pay raise.
The new three-year con-
tract would be retroactive to
October 2004, and officers
would receive their belated
raises within three days of
council's approval next
Tuesday.
Under the proposed con-
tract:
A first-year police officer
would be paid $34,800 as of
October 2004. That starting
salary would be $35,800 as of
October 2005 and $37,000 as
of October 2006.
Current starting salaries,
under the expired contract,
are $33,322.
Maximum base salary
would be $52,000 by an offi-
cer's sixth year as of October
2004, $53,750 as of the sev-
enth year of work in October
2005 and $55,750 as of the
officer's eighth year in
October 2006.
Current maximum base
salary, under the expired con-
tract, is $49,249.
East Venice Avenue
workshop Dec. 10
A public workshop for
property owners and other
interested residents in the
East Venice Avenue planning
area will take place from 9
a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Dec.
10, at the Nokomis Commu-
nity Center, 234 E. Nippino
Trail, Nokomis.
This is the first of a series of
workshops during the next six
months to develop a vision-
based plan for the East Venice
Avenue area. The first work-
shop will focus on the existing
and potential assets of the
area such as the natural,
social and economic systems.
This entire area is within
Sarasota County government
jurisdiction, but is adjacent to
Venice city limits and often is
assumed to be part of the city.
City Manager Marty Black
confirmed Tuesday that
county planners have not
asked the city to participate in
the workshop. Instead, an
invitation to attend as an


audience member was sent.
The second workshop,
planned for early January, will
build on the first workshop as
participants will imagine pos-
sibilities for the area. A third
workshop is planned for early
to mid-February so the plan
can be completed by early
March for public hearings
later that month.
The workshop is being
facilitated by the Florida,
House Institute.
The East Venice Avenue
planning area includes
properties along the south
side of the road and north to
Interstate 75 with North
River Road as the eastern


boundary and Jacaranda
Boulevard as the western
boundary.
Earlier this fall, the
Sarasota County Board of
Commissioners imposed a
temporary moratorium on
future zoning changes in the
planning area pending com-
pletion of the planning
study.
For more information,
contact the Sarasota County
Call Center at 861-5000 and
ask about the public work-
shop for the East Venice
planning area.

Charlotte spoils Indians home opener

BY CLAUDE LEWIS .''
SPORTS EDITOR .


One day the sun will shine
for the Venice High boys bas-
ketball team, but for now, the
Indians are dealing with early
season growing pains.
The task is tall when facing
a quick, athletic team like
Charlotte.
The Tarpons spoiled the
Indians home opener
Tuesday night, dominating in
every facet of the game in a
54-43 Class 5A District 11 vic-
tory at the Teepee.
Venice has now lost four
straight since its season-
opening victory over Mooney.
The Indians are 0-3 in district

STAFF REPORT


The Venice High wrestling team had
three individual champions at the East
Lake Invitational, but team-wise the
Indians had another thing coming.
With a field stacked with the likes of
Brandon, Countryside and Miami
Southridge, Venice finished'back in the
pack in team points, placing seventh.
Brett Nelson (160 pounds), Jeremie
Cook (189) and Anthony Saputo (heavy-
weight) won individual crowns for
Venice.
The Indians failed to have a single
wrestler take either second, third or
fourth, which hurt big time in team
points.
"We came up just short getting in con-
solation matches," Indian head coach
Dan Kelly said.
Brandon had six individual champi-
ons and won first place in team points.


The Venice varsity will be busy again
this Saturday at the Captain Archer
Tournament at Charlotte High in Punta
Gorda.
Venice has won the Captain Archer
the past two years. With a young squad, a
three-peat will be a tall order.
"Cape Coral' could be the favorite,"
Kelly said. "Mariner and Fort Myers are
also there."
The junior varsity portion of the
Captain Archer will be held Friday.
Speaking of junior varsity, the Venice
JVs captured the Lemon Bay
Tournament held Saturday. The Indians
edged Manatee by a point, 174-173.
Taking firsts for Venice were Kevin
Rouhan (119) and Tony Gonter (125).
Mike Crain (103) and Louis White (171)
were second. Capturing thirds were
Brian Lin (119), Nat Sizemore (130), Joe
Angelicci (145) and Kyle Keefe (152). Billy
Fields (135) and Kosta Dafalous (140)


were fourth.

Memorable 2005 for Legends


Local senior softballers
capture 7 of 8 national
tournaments they
played in this year.

STAFF REPORT

What a year for the Florida
Legends.
The local senior softball
team won a whopping seven
national tournaments in 2005
- not too shabby when you
consider they played in eight
national events.
The seventh title came in
the SSWC Winter Nationals
played in Cape Coral Nov. 25-
27.
The Legends started out
uncharacteristically dropping
two of three bracket games,
but the local bunch of 60-plus
ball players took their game
to another level once tourney
play started.
They defeated the
Pompano Beach Bums 14-2
and the Jersey Jags 13-11 to
win the championship.
Lou Giovanini wrapped up
a stellar 2005 by having an on-
base percentage of .833. Bob


Koss was close behind at .800.
Pat Bidelman (.733), Bill Gray
(.667) and Hansel Faulkner
(.538).
The year 2005 was the sec-
ond most successful in the
Legends 16-year history. In
1999, they were 58-0 in
national tourneys.

Legends best of 2005
in Florida Half Century
The Florida Legends 60-
plus senior softball team cap-
tured its fifth state champi-
onship in six years, winning
the Florida Half Century title
over the weekend in
Lakeland.
The Legends won all five
games they played.,
In the tourney opener, the
Legendary Ones defeated the
Daytona Human Kinetics, 27-
24 in eight innings. Kinetics
came from behind to tie the
game in the bottom of the
seventh. The Legends scored
five runs in the eighth to win
it.
The next game was also
very close with the Legends
edging the Ocala Village


Merchants, 16-15. Ron Locke
had the game-winning hit.
The third game was a little
easier for the Legends, as they
topped Naples, 19-8.
This brought the Legends
to the bracket championship.
The locals piled on a 12-5 vic-
tory over the Lauderdale
Travelers.
Ironically, the final was the
easiest game of the tourna-
ment for the Legends, as they
crushed the Renegades, 33-4..
The Legends were also pre-
sented a trophy for 60s Team
of the Year as a result of com-
piling the best won-loss
record in 2005. The trophy
was presented to Renee
Woods, widow of Legends
slugger Bobby Woods, who
passed away on the field in
the Roy Hobbs Baseball
Tournament the previous
weekend in Fort Myers.
The, Legends wore black
wristbands with the No. 24 on
them in memory of their
longtime teammate.

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Comn-.
mission (FWC) will assem-
ble a diverse group of stake-
holders concerned about
gopher tortoise manage-
ment and conservation Fri-
day in Lecanto.
Organizers hope partici-
pants can identify common
interests, establish a frame-
work for a gopher tortoise
stakeholder group and build
an effective communications
line between this group and
the FWC.


The 10 a.m.-to-1 p.m.
meeting is open to the public
at the Citrus County Govern-
ment Building, 3600 W.
Sovereign Path, Room 166.
FWC hopes participants
will represent the diversity of
opinions surrounding gopher
tortoise issues and will
include participation from
conservation organizations,
developers, consultants,
county and state agencies,
landowners, land managers
and concerned individuals.
Once established, the


gopher tortoise stakeholder
group will discuss issues,
evaluate scientific informa-
tion and could develop pro-
posals for regulations, man-
agement 'activities and con-
servation policies.
Anyone requiring special
accommodations to partici-
pate should notify the FWC at
least two days in advance by
calling Dr. Perran Ross at
(352) 392-7137. Hearing- or
speech-impaired persons can

Geraniums, Petunias, Phlox, Alyssum, Colas, Penta, Kalanchoe,
Impatiens, Begonias, New Guinea Impatiens, and Dianthus just
to name a few tricky ones. We also carry some very
nice Christmas Cactus, as well as Holiday Poinsettias. ;

Cinderella




Man in




Venice.



Braddock, the Bulldog of

Bergen, received treatment

for arthritis in Venice.

STORY BY JEREMY ROTTGEN STAFF WRITER
U Underdogs are not meant to win.
James J. Braddock had the dogged
determination that inspired millions to
pick themselves up off the ground during the
depression. Braddock managed to instill hope
and opportunity to the masses with his victories.
The movie "Cinderella Man" is a tribute to the
man who stole people's imagination 75 years ago
by defeating world heavyweight boxer Max Baer.
Not long after his thrilling victory, Braddock came
to Venice for arthritis treatments from Dr. Fred
Albee and a long-deserved vacation.


Going back to the summer
of 1936, Braddock had
already won the champi-
onship belt. Braddock's first
title defense would be against
Max Schmeling in the fall of
1936, only Braddock was suf-
fering from severe pain in
both of his elbows and his
hands. The modie shows how
breaks to Braddock's right
hand would have caused
some painful complications.
The New York State
Athletic Commission
requested that Dr. Fred Albee
a famous orthopedic surgeon
and founding Venice figure,
examine Braddock's hand.
Albee discovered that
Braddock had sub-acute
arthritis in his left hand and
both of his elbows.
Albee advised Braddock to
take at least a month off from
boxing for treatment. The
sports world was kept in sus-
pense yearning for a title
Defense.
"I'll fight Sept. 24 if they
want me to, bad hand or no
bad hand," Braddock had
said.
It was this same kind of
wicked determination that
got Braddock and his family
through the cold New Jersey
winter with no heat. It was
also a stubborn sense of Irish
pride that was strong enough
to win the title even with a
few cracked ribs.
Venice connection
Albee was a nationally
known surgeon and offered

A LUNCHEON WITH STYLE 14B


PHOTOS COURTESY OF THE VENICE ARCHIVES
A member of the New York City Athletic Commission examines James Braddock's hand for the
fight with Max Schmeling (middle).


"I'll fight Sept. 24 (1936) if they want me to, bad
hand or no bad hand."
James Braddock, the former
boxing champ talking about his
pending fight with Max Schmeling.
Braddock was sent to Dr. Fred Albee,
of Venice, who ordered six months of
rest nearly all of it spent right here.


James Braddock enjoyed Tampa cigars along with sunshine and sand during his stay in Venice.


one of seven opinions on
Braddock's ailments. The
commission sided with Albee
because of his expertise and
decided to postpone the fight
with Schmeling until further
notice, which was not good
news for the contender who
decided to go back to his
homeland of Germany, and
wait for a shot at the champ.
Meanwhile,. the fight was
rescheduled for February
1937, then it was postponed
for six months.;
Schmeling was not happy
to lose his opportunity to

become the champion for a
third time. He, like Braddock,
was an older boxer and want-
ed another chance. There was:
talk of having a fight between
Schmeling and the Brown
Bomber Joe Louis.
"Nothing doing, I'm here
to fight Braddock for the title,"
Schmeling said when asked
about fighting Louis again.
"That's all I'm interested in.
There is no point in meeting
Louis except for the money,
and I don't need that."
Headlines read "Champ
wins delay," which Braddock
had. Per the doctor's request
Braddock was to recuperate
for one month at Albee's
cabana swimming and sight-
seeing. It was a prescription
of sunshine and relaxation.
Sunshine recovery
Braddock, 31, left for
Venice on Aug. 24, 1936. He
was given a president's wel-
come when he arrived. It was
a big occasion for what was,
back then, a small coastal
town.
Local newspapers covered
Braddock's recovery. Most of
his treatment involved swing-
ing a club at the Venice Golf
Club, fishing in the Gulf and
enjoying Tampa cigars. He
made headlines yet again
when he caught a 350-pound
shark. Albee managed to reel.
in a 75-pound shark on the
same expedition.
Braddock headed back to
New York on Sept. 13, but
Venice wouldn't soon forget


JIMPY'S GOOD

the champ.
Pathway to the title
According to Braddock's
estate, his mother and father
were immigrants from
Ireland. He was born on June
7, 1905, in a tiny apartment
on West 48th Street in New
York City. Braddock went
from job to job until he dis-
covered his love for boxing.
Braddock was an amateur
fighter for a few years and
then went professional in
1926. Despite his slim
physique, most likely from
waiting in endless soup lines
that ran dry, he was able to
knock out larger opponents
with his big left hand. *
After breaking his right
hand, Braddock developed a
strong left while taking shifts
at the docks. He was decom-
missioned from the ring
putting a sudden stop to his
career. Braddock would not
return to the ring for nearly 10
months.
Braddock's crafty manager,
Joe Gould, got Braddock back
in the ring in an undercard
fight against Jon "Corn"
Griffin. To the amazement of
everyone, he won. Braddock
was given another chance to
fight John Henry Lewis. Once
again, most predicted that
Braddock wouldn't make it
through the first round.

the first movement of Rutter's
large-scale masterwork,
'Magnificat,' written for


Carnegie Hall (1990). In this

pouring of praise, joy and
trust in God ... ascribed to the
Virgin Mary on learning that
she was to give birth to
Christ." We are also perform-
ing several new works from
Mark Hayes, 'Gloria in
Excelsis Deo' and his unique
rendition of 'Jingle Bells.'"

Salmen High School, a
public high school in Slidell,
La., near Lake Pontchartrain
and 20 miles north of New
Orleans, was hit hard by
Hurricane Katrina. All the
buildings were completely
covered by a 15-foot tidal
surge. Only the rooftops were
left visible. Nothing in the
library is salvageable.
The school is currently
sharing facilities with another
school and hopes to begin the
rebuilding process after the
winter holidays. In addition
to the building damage, the
11,000-volume school library
was a total loss. Southern
Association Accreditation
standards require a school
library to contain at least 10
books per registered student,
hence the need to replace the
library as soon as possible.
If you have books appro-
priate to a high school library,
including reference works
plus fiction or non-fiction,
preferably library-bound,
send them to Librarian Nancy
McKee, Salmen High School,

Jimmy proved the critics
wrong with a 10-round victo-
ry. Then Braddock defeated
Art Lasky giving him the go-
ahead to compete for Max
Baer's title.
On June 13, 1935, at
.Madison Square Garden
Braddock, a 10-1 underdog,
he entered the ring to face
Baer. Braddock won the 15-
round decision to become the
new heavyweight champion
of the world.
Brown Bomber
defeats Braddock
During his reign as champ,
Jim Braddock fought a series
of exhibition fights. On June
22, 1937, Braddock would
defend and lose his heavy-
weight title in an eight-round
knockout to "The Brown
Bomber" Joe Louis.
There was no better
champ to lose to. The title
wouldn't change hands again
for 12 years.
Gould's craftiness paid off
again when he made a deal
that gave both Braddock
and himself 10 percent of
the gross with from the
Louis fight for the next 10
years. From 1937 to 1939,
Braddock received more
than $150,000.
After his retirement from
the ring, Braddock enlisted
with the U.S. Army in 1942


James Braddock and Max Schmeling shake hands during a
meeting to discuss their title fight which would never occur.

tenant. He served in the
South Pacific on the island of
Saipan.
When he returned to the

and his wife Mae raised their


three children, Jay, Howard
and Rosemarie, in a house
they bought in North Bergen,

Necklaces for New Orleans fundraiser a success


GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


.Led by teacher Dawn
Smith, Venice Elementary
student council members re-
cently presented a check for
$728.96 to the Southwest
Florida Chapter of the Ameri-
can Red Cross.
The "Little Indians" sold
Mardi Gras beads at one dol-
lar a pop to raise the funds.
Third-, fourth-, and fifth-
grade student representatives
crowded into their brand-
new television studio in the
media center to make the
presentation.
Student Council vice presi-
dent Morgan Kontor handed
American Red Cross senior
director Donna Dunio the
check as part of the regular
morning news broadcast.
"You are all heroes," Dunio
told the students."I know you
don't think of yourselves as
heroes, but that is what you
are. What you did means so
much to the families and their
loved ones in New Orleans."
Dunio told students the
Southwest Florida Chapter
provided more than 250 evac-
uees and their families, more


than 600 people, with finan-
cial assistance, lodging and
mental and general health
services. They deployed 280
trained chapter volunteers to
help out Hurricane Katrina
disaster relief victims.
While the Venice El funds
will go to disaster relief, Dun-
io reminds residents to con-
tinue supporting their local
chapter to help with victims
of other disasters.
She also encouraged stu-
dents to consider teaming up
with the Red Cross Youth
Corps. Twelve- to 18-year-
olds can help provide disaster
preparedness and responses.
The chapter was recognized
with an official national day
by the Points of Light organi-
zation for their efforts during
the 2004 hurricane season.
"We received so many let-
ters from people who were
comforted by students, or
whose kids were comforted
by youth. It really surprised
adults that young kids could
be trained in CPR or how to
counsel and calm someone in
distress. It's really an amazing
program," Dunio said.
For more information on
theYouth Corps call 379-9300.

Marathon: Biting off more than you can chew


J.J. Andrews
BACK OF THE PACK

In the world of men, man-
liness is defined by doing
something you cannot do.
Or will not do.
Or you're too scared to do.
So it makes serise that
uttering the word "marathon"
gets people's attention, even if
there's not a runner in the
bunch. I've owned cars that,
couldn't handle going 26.2
miles, let alone pushing my
body to do that.
Bragging rights push many
of us including women -
to go out and run a marathon


just so we can say we did it.
However, a marathon is
not for everyone. It's a gruel-
ing endurance race that can
beat the body down. As one of
my running friends told me
Monday, "Not everyone's
meant to run a marathon. But.
if you can run 10 miles; then
anyone can do a half-
marathon."
A half-marathon! Of
course. Like I did at the
Brandon Half-Marathon last
Sunday, half-marathons can,
allow some strutting space in
the ol' ego without complete-
ly tearing apart the body. I
was able to run a personal
best in the half-marathon
Sunday, and still get out of
bed Monday morning for the
Venice Runners Group run -
my pace was slow, but I still
ran.
Setting goals
Accomplishment goals
have been on my mind lately.
The Fiancee ran her first 5K
(3.1 miles) race on Saturday,
and logged her fastest time


ever.
Within a couple hours of
finishing, she was looking for
her next goal. The distance
completed was much more
important than the speed, so
she was looking at the idea of
jumping up to a longer race.
Marathon was the first one
she thought of, and then she
said, "Well, that's just crazy
talk running' 26 miles!" For
now, she's going to settle for
trying to run faster than her
time last weekend.
This is common among
people who thought they
could never complete a 5K.
They find out their body can
handle it, and then look for
the next challenge.
Unfortunately, so many peo-
ple think the only road races
out there are 5K and
marathon, and get scared off.
Though not as many, run-
ners can often find 10K '(6.2
miles) and 15K (9.3 miles)
races. The half-marathon at
13:1 miles, however, sounds
more intimidating than those
other races.


And as I once read in a fit-
ness article, if you say "half-
marathon" fast enough while
bragging in the office, your
co-workers might think you
said marathon.
Let them think you're even
tougher than you really are.
Getting ready
Like with every workout
routine, there are a million-
and-one training plans out
there for the half-marathon.
You can go out there and buy
some fancy book that'll also
offer recipes for Sea Grass
Casserole, or just go to the
online runner's encyclopedia
at runnersworld.com.
Under the training plans
link, click on "ultimate half-
marathon plan" and follow its
directions. Here are the high-
lights:
Preparation Give your-
self nine weeks of training.
That's unfortunate because
the Naples Half-Marathon is
Jan. 22 (six weeks) and would
be a great first race. Half-
marathons closer to nine


weeks away would be the
weekend of Feb. 11-12, and I
found the Florida Challenge
Trail Half-Marathon at Alafia
River State Park. Alafia is a
great course, but very difficult
because it's on trails and
rough terrain not for the
faint of heart.
Beginners You're con-
sidered a beginner if you've
run for about a year and can
already do 5 miles without it
being too difficult and your
weekly mileage is around 15-
20 miles. If you're doing less
than this, perhaps you should
stick with the 5K. Increasing
mileage too quickly is how
injuries happen.
Training tips The two
major goals are to slowly
increase your weekly mileage,
and also picking up your
speed during these long runs.
All of this is preparation for
running continuously for
more than two hours, the typ-
ical half-marathon time. The
runnersworld.com plan has
you running four times a
week, increasing your weekly


mileage from 20 miles in
week No. 1 to a maximum of
34 miles (including a long run
of 10 miles) in week No. 8.
I realize that some of you
out there are questioning why
anyone would start training
for a half-marathon less than
three weeks before Christmas
and New Year's. What about
all of the food and lively spir-
its to be consumed?
That's an even better rea-
son to start training now. As
I've mentioned before, the
best part about making run-
ning a part of my daily life is
guilt-free eating.
Don't believe me? Just ask
The Fiancee about
Thanksgiving and the heaps
of leftovers and desserts that
barely made it two days.
I never thought twice
about it. I just tacked on an
extra couple of miles the next
day.

ly running column appear-

Q 1 Vulnerable, you hold:
#KKQJ52 Y AK5 oAK 4J104
What is your opening bid?
A With five losers and only five
trumps, the hand is not good enough
to open with a demand bid.in spades
(or two clubs, if that's your game
force). But how do you intend han-
dling the auction if you open one
spade'? You have a balanced hand
with 21 points so forget any inhibi-
tions about opening no trump when
you hold a five-card major and open
two no trump.

Q 2 Neither vulnerable, you hold:
A AKQ104 v QJ 107654 K 4.* Void
What is your opening bid'?
A Had our length in the majors
been 5-6, we might have considered
opening one spade and jumping in
hearts. However, with a two-card dis-
crepancy in length, we prefer open-
ing one heart and then reversing in
spades.

What do you bid now?
A In the modern style, your hand is
not suitable for a jump shift
response, and that has created an
awkward situation. You have no con-
venient spade rebid to show your
strength and shape, so you must
manufacture a forcing rebid. Bid
three clubs.

other than raise to two spades would
be a breach of trust in partner.

SUN PHOTO BY JONATHAN FRED IN
Englewood wildlife photographer Dr. John Flower has just released his 2006 wildlife desk cale n-
dar.

Flower makes dates with calendar


BY SHELLY JANKE
STAFF WRITER

Dr. John Flower is celebrat-
ing auld lang syne with his
newly released 2006 desk cal-
endar, a glimpse at what
remains of Florida's uninhib-
ited, untouched wildlife.
This year, the calendar
does not include pho-
tographs from around the
country, as it has in the past.
"People like to see local
wildlife more than national
wildlife," Flower said.
Flower, who is a retired
Englewood dentist, has pho-
tographed the state's wildlife
for 25 years.
' The following are Flower's
recollections of his most
recent wildlife encounters,
accompanied by some little-
known facts about his pho-
tographed friends.
January: Osprey with fish.
An osprey tightly grasps its
prey atop a perch. "The fish
weighed as much as the
osprey," Flower said. The shot
was taken in Placida.
February: Black bear. The
bear's mug shot was safely
taken from a tree stand in the
Everglades, he said.
March: Black-necked stilt.
Flower said the stilts chirped


loudly as he photographed
them. The reason? "They
chirp when they're mating,"
he said. "Their common
name has become 'lawyer
bird' because they won't keep
quiet." The stilt's snapshot
was taken at Ding Darling
park on Sanibel Island.
April: Limpkin with apple
snail. "One leg is shorter than
the other, so they limp,"
Flower said. This limpkin's
likeness was shot in Myakka
State Park.
May: Whooping crane. The
crane's close-up was snapped
in Kissimmee. "In 1941, there
were only 11 of these left," he,
said. "Today there are almost
200."
June: Immature black vul-
ture. This vulture's nest was
found by surveyors on a


ranch in Bradenton. "Boy, d: id
that thing stink," Flower sai( 1.
July: Eagle taking o:ff.
Making a home in the midd le
of Eagle's Nest Estates, "t he
eagle was shot at Florida ai id
Holly avenues in Englewood I,"
Flower said. "The nest h as
been there for years."
August: Panther kittec:n.
Flower photographed tl:iis
spotted kitty on a tour of t he
Everglades, guided by 't he
cat man,' as the lo ;al
American Indians call ed
him."
September: Americ:ian
crocodile. This clever croc
was recently removed by lo cal
authorities from its Di ng
Darling home, only to rett trn
one week later, Flower sa id.

Students grouped by their


individual ability learn better


LYNN REIFERT


A concerned grandparent
of an eighth-grade student
who was having problems
passing an algebra class had
him tested privately at a local
tutoring center. She was told
that he was unable to per-
form many basic math skills.
Then she asked the impor-
tant question that many par-
ents are asking: "How did he
get passed along in school
without having mastered
these basic skills?"
Why do capable students
get "passed along" from grade
to grade without learning
how to do, for example, basic
math?
Florida's lawmakers have
been trying to prevent this
from happening by mandat-
ing more testing. But it is
going to take more than test-
irig to improve the system
and ensure that each child
who graduates from a Florida
high school can read, write
and understand basic math.
The state's tests will only
identify those who cannot
perform. It is left for the
schools and parents to
improve student perfor-
mance.
Schools have worked very


hard to achieve optimum
performance, even before the
Florida Comprehensive
Achievement Test. Yet, it has
become more and more diffi-
cult to get better results, due
in a large part to a changing
society.
If you ask veteran teachers,
they will tell you that today it
seems fewer parents share
responsibility in their chil-
dren's education.
In two-parent families,
both parents usually work,
and children are often
involved in numerous after-
school actLvities. They spend
less time > and energy on
drilling math facts, practicing
spelling lists and reviewing
homework. They also have
less quality time (when inci-
dental learning occurs)
together.
The rise in single-parent
households could be blamed
for less time and energy avail-
able for helping children
schoolwork. It takes a
tremendous amount of time
and energy for one parent to
work and maintain a home by
himself or herself.
Technology and modern
conveniences are supposed
.to give us more time.
Ironically, they often seem to
do the opposite. We have to
work more to afford more
gadgets for our families,
spend time buying and
updating, programming,
playing with and taking care
of them.
Whatever the reason,
schools have been required to
shoulder more of the respon-
sibility of preparing the chil-
dren for the future. Because of


this and demands of a rapidly
advancing technological soci-
ety, what is needed now more
than ever before is a more
efficient educational system.
Currently, the system in
many schools is inefficient
because classes are com-
posed of children with too
many different learning char-
acteristics. For teachers, it can
be like attempting to teach a
class of students who all
speak different languages.
In the business world, it is

commonly known that the
more you understand your
target market, the people to
whom you are selling your
product, the better your rate
of success.
To effectively educate chil-
dren it is crucial that teachers
and administrators first know
students, aptitudes, attitudes
and attributes. Knowing what
"language" they are speaking
is the first step in becoming
more efficient and effective.
The second step, once they'
know their "customers," is to
group them for better instruc-
tion by considering more
than just the grade levels. It is
important to take into
account the rate at which
they learn and retain new
information (academic apti-
tude); their educational moti-
vation level (attitude); and
whether they are primarily
creative or logical thinkers
(their attributes).
Academic aptitude and
motivation can be deter-
mined by administering stan-
dardized tests that measure
those qualities. Whether a
student tends to be more cre-
ative, non-sequential or logi-
cal is observable and can be
decided by parents and
teachers.
Grouping students accord-
ing to common characteris-


tics and attributes would
allow teachers to appropri-
ately pace instruction and
customize teaching methods
and thereby maximize learn-
ing.
It would eliminate teach-
ing at a pace that leaves some
students struggling to keep
up and others waiting to
move forward.
Today's educators need a
new, more effective plan of
action. Grouping students
according to their academic
aptitudes, attitudes and
attributes will help ensure
that students are not just
"passed along" to the next
grade.

"She found her way back
, from 300 miles away," he said.
One way to tell a crocodile
from an alligator: A croc's
lower teeth overlap the upper
teeth. The opposite is true of
the alligator, Flower said.
October: White pelicans in
flight. True snowbirds, "peli-
cans come back from up
north every October," Flower
said. "They fly back the first of
April to build their nests."
Between 1,400 and 1,500 peli-
cans grace Charlotte Harbor
every year, he said.
November: Oyster catcher.
A pair of the red-beaked birds
lives on Manasota Key, Flower
said. The couple regularly
stops to feast on the oyster
bar near the Englewood Bait


House on Beach Road. "They
pry open the shells with their
beaks," he said.
December: Great white
heron and great blue heron.
The herons made a nest
together in Ainger Creek,
"documenting that they are
the same species," Flower
said. Though the nest proves
that the two herons mated,
"all of the young were blue,"
he said.
