Duke family puts nursery on the market


Lynn and Bill Johnson are retiring
and selling the business her uncle
started more than 50 years ago.

"It's getting .time, because
of our age, to retire and move
on," said Lynn Johnson, own-
er of Duke Garden Center..
She and husband Bill have
decided to sell their landmark
Venice business at 601 U.S. 41
Bypass South, on the comer
of Pineland Avenue.


"We've had it to ourselves
for ten years,". said Johnson.
"My father went to his grave
waiting for the road, but we
have decided we don't want
it to have the same effect,
because it may be another
five or six years even before
the money is set aside for the
highway.
Her parents, Gerald and
Florence Duke, worked in a


similar business on the island
for his uncle, who wanted out
in 1954.
A native Floridian, Duke
was a graduate horticultural-
ist with a sound knowledge of
the state, the soils and Florida
plants. An opportunity arose
to put the business on what is
now the bypass, where there
was more space and a home.
Lynn recalls being raised in
that home, part of which still
exists in the garden center.

Federal agents swarm doctor's office


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

Federal agents executed
a search warrant at the
offices of Venice dermotol-
ogist Steven I. Wasserman,
1111 Avenida Del Circo, late
Thursday afternoon.
FBI agents were seen
loading boxes of what ap-
peared to be records into a
large, white box truck.
It is not known what kind
of records were being taken.
At 5 p.m., two Venice


police cars were at the
scene.
"All I know is they called
us this morning and asked
us to stand by and help
them," Venice Police Depu-
ty Chief Dan McGoogan
said. "But they would not
tell us what they were in-
vestigating."
Federal agents rarely
divulge investigative infor-
mation to local authorities.
Venice officers watched
while the federal agents
stacked the boxes inside the


truck.
FBI agents would not
comment.
Local officers at the
scene politely told reporters
they did not know what the
FBI was doing except they
were executing a search
warrant.
Phone calls to Wasser-
man's office shortly before
5 p.m. were not answered.

What's an extra 6 million gal-
Ions a day among neighbors?
Officials with the Peace
River/Manasota RegionalWater
Supply Authority may have a
better idea after receiving the
results of a study on the pro-
posed Peace River Option.
The water authority board
met Wednesday morning to


select a contractor to perform a
five-year, $637,080 hydrobiolog-
ical monitoring program on the
Peace River. The board, consist-
ing of representatives from
Charlotte, Sarasota, Manatee
and DeSoto counties, unani-
mously chose Coastal Environ-
mental of St. Petersburg, Fla.
The monitoring program
would provide the water
authority with data on how
water quality and wildlife might


be affected by withdrawing an
additional 6 million gallons of
water a day from the Peace
River.
, The study would try to
address Charlotte County's con-
cerns over the option's potential
impacts on Charlotte Harbor,
according to Charlotte County
Commissioner Adam Cum-
mings.
"It'sIan extra level of com-
fort," Cummings said Wednes-
day.
The Peace River Option was


created by the regional water
authority which runs a water
treatment plant in DeSoto
County for customers in
Sarasota, Charlotte and DeSoto
counties.
The plan would expand the
capacity of the water authority's
plant on the Peace River from 12
to 18 million gallons a day
(MGD) by 2000. The 105-mile
river has an annual average
daily flow of 970 MGD.

Anotherbusy hurricane season coming


Gray's team calls for
above-average 2006.

BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Less than a week after the
hurricane season. ended,
William Gray, Phil Klotzbach
and their team at Colorado
State University released a
forecast for the 2006 hurri-
cane season.
The news is not promising.
If the forecasters are cor-
rect, the names Alberto, Beryl,
Chris and many others may
soon join Charley, Ivan,
Jeanne, Dennis, Katrina, Rita
and Wilma as ones that strike
fear in the hearts of people
along the U.S. coastline.
"We foresee another very
active Atlantic basin tropical
cyclone season in 2006," Gray
said in an announcement
Tuesday. "However, we do not
expect to see as many land-
falling major hurricanes in
the United States as we have
experienced in 2004 and
2005."
The team expects there to
be 17 named storms -,nine
hurricanes and five intense
hurricanes for'the season,
which runs from June 1 to
Nov. 30. There were 26 named
storms in 2005 and 15 in 2004.
The numbers are well
above average and continue
the trend of active seasons
that started in 1995 and is
expected to continue for
another 15 to 25 years.


Gray *

The team also predicts an
81 percent chance of a major
hurricane with winds in
excess of 111 mph--making
landfall in the United States.
In an average season, there
would be a 51 percent
chance.
This includes a 64 percent
chance of a major hurricane
striking the U.S. East Coast,
which includes the Florida
Peninsula. The average year
would see a 31 percent
chance of landfall.,
More of the same
The forecast was not good
news for Brad Gaithers of Port
Charlotte, who has been liv-
ing in a travel trailer since
Hurricane Charley shredded
his home Aug. 13, 2004.


"This does pot make me
.very happy," Gaithers said.
"My new home will be done
in time, but if any of these
storms puts Florida in' its
sights, I am out of here. If we
get hit bad, I won't be back. I
really can't put my family
through this again."
Emergency Coordinator
Gerry Mallet said the forecast
does not surprise him and
only reinforces the current
pattern that he says puts the
area under a regular threat
from these destructive
storms.
"This indicates the trend
and we really have to pay
attention to that," Mallet said.
"It also makes sure we stay on
our toes."
Mallet said the off-season
is used to review the emer-
gency response to each threat
of 2005 and meet wi1h other
emergency managers across
the state and country to learn
lessons.
Klotzbach said the team
looks at key weather patterns
to determine what the
Atlantic basin can expect-in
the coming season. The team.
adjusts its forecast in April,
May and during the middle of
the season.
For 2006, he said, warm
tropical and North Atlantic
sea-surface temperatures
should continue as they have
in most years since 1995. Add
to that a neutral or weak La
Nifia and the combination'
greatly increases the chance
for another destructive hurri-

cane season.
Unexpected
Klotzbach said there is no
indication increased actiityr
is related to global warming.
There have been similar
past periods, such as the
'1940s to 1950s, when the
Atlantic was just as active, he
said.
Comparing Atlantic basin
hurricane numbers of the last
15 years with an earlier 15-
year period (1950-1964), the
team found no difference in


hurricane frequency or inten-
sity even though the global
surface temperatures were
cooler and there was general
global cooling during 1950
and 1964.
"That tells us a lot,"
Klotzbach said. "The storms
rely on much more than just
warm sea-surface tempera-
tures."
The team did forecast an
above-average, season for
2005 with its December 2004
forecast by saying: "We fore-
see a slightly above-average
hurricane season for the
Atlantic basin in 2005. Also,
an above-average probability
of U.S. major hurricane land-
fall is anticipated. We do not,
however, expect anything
close to the U.S. landfalling
hurricane activity of 2004."
Klotzbach said that fore-
cast was based on the expec-
tation of an El Nifio forming
in the western Pacific in 2005.
That never materialized
and 2005 brought a number
of records.
As busy as the past two'
years have been, Gray said
most coastal residents proba-
bly didnhi't realize how fortu-
nate dhey were in the 38-year"
period between 1966 and
2003, when only 17 major
hurricanes crossed the U.S.
coastline.
From 1926 to 1965, there
were 36 major hurricanes that
* made U.S. landfall.
"It is understandable that
coastal residents were not
prepared for the great


Klozbach

upsurge in landfalling major
hurricanes in 2004-2005,"
Gray said.
Klotzbach said the proba-
bility of landfall for any one
location along the coast is
very low and most U.S.
coastal areas will not feel the
effects of a hurricane no mat-
ter how active the season is.
"It must also be empha-
sized that a low landfall prob-
ability does not ensure that
hurricanes will not come
ashore," he said. "Regardless
of how active the 2006 hurri-
cane season is, a finite proba-
bility always exists that one or
more hurricanes may strike
along the U.S. coastline ... and
do damage:"

Local ballot initiatives would



address growth decisions


A dirty job, but...


Citizens for Sensible
Growth wants Sarasota
County voters to have
say on urban expan-
sion. Florida
Hometown Democracy
wants all voters to
decide comprehensive
plan changes.

BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

One of those pesky govern-
ment watchdog groups that
stirs up election year debates
will pursue a couple of
Sarasota County Charter
changes next November and
attempt to give voters more
say at the ballot box about
community growth decisions.
Citizens for Sensible
Growth in Sarasota County is
a self-described "grass-roots,
public interest committee of
neighborhood and civic lead-
ers, business owners and resi-
dents" that is concerned
about quality-of-life issues in
a community challenged by
growth issues.
Next month, its volunteers
will begin to gather petition
signatures so two questions
can be placed on the general
election ballot that address
urban expansion and the
county commission's authori-
ty to arbitrarily approve new
density by simple majority
votes.
"We haven't launched the
petition drive, but we already
have people calling in to vol-
unteer because they've seen
our computer Web site," said
Bill Earl, the group's chair-
man. "Our people will begin
collecting signatures at the
Farmers' Market in..down-:,
town Sarasota next month."
The group believes its ini-
tiatives, are so narrowly writ-
ten they won't threaten the
county's overall planning
process, but only require a
greater degree of overall con-
sensus when it comes to deci-
sions that require large com-
mitments of taxpayers'
money.
In a nutshell, the initiatives
would require: 1) voter
approval for an expansion of
the county's urban service
boundary; and 2) superma-
jority approval from at least
four county commissioners.
for comprehensive plan
changes that increase urban
sprawl, traffic congestion and
taxes.
The local initiatives may
get caught up in a statewide
debate about comprehensive
planning if another grass-
roots citizens' organization-
Florida Hometown
Democracy gets its more
far-reaching constitutional
amendment proposals on the
ballot.
Opposition expected


In 2004, the Volusia County
group attempted to have a
measure 'placed on the
statewide ballot that would
require local voter approval of
all county and city growth
plan changes. It didn't pass
legal muster, but there is a
strong possibility it will be on
the Nov. 7,2006, ballot.
S"Our proposals are much
more narrow in scope," Earl
said. "There will be a lot of
opposition to the Hometown
Democracy initiatives from
people who don't want com-
prehensive planning by refer-
endum. Ours just focus on
what we consider govern-
ment business as usual."
Florida's development
industry will mount fierce
opposition to the Hometown
Democracy initiatives if
they get on the statewide bal-
lot and Earl assumes there
will also be a concerted effort
at both the state and local
level to beat back his group's
proposals.
"We've been told by people
we've talked with in


Tallahassee to expect opposi-
tion," he said. "If our ballot
questions pass, other groups
who want to have a voice
about local issues may take
action. We just feel our system
isn't working, and it's obvious
to anyone with eyes."
The narrow thrust of both
local initiatives is major dol-
lars and cents commitments
the county makes to pay for
new infrastructure when it
expands the urban area into
non-urban or rural areas,
where developers are
required to pay for new infra-
structure.
"We recently learned
about an urban growth
boundary in Ventura County,
Calif.," Earl said, "and how
one developer spent $3.5 mil-
lion to fight a ballot initiative
that opposed moving it. I
think the more people learn
about this whole subject, the
more interested they will be."
Citizens for Sensible
Growth in Sarasota County
will have to secure more than
12,000 signatures to get its
initiatives on the countywide
ballot, a far cry from the more
than 500,000 signatures
Hometown Democracy will
have to secure for its
statewide effort.
Fear
The Volusia County group
makes no bones about the
fact that it thinks Florida's
growth management process
is out of control, and it wants
to dramatically change how
new growth is managed at
both the county and munici-
pal levels where critical deci-
sions are made.
As matters currently stand,
the power to decide where
new residential subdivisions,
business parks, shopping
malls ancroads are built rests
"with'ourity and city governm-
ments, which are required by
state law to prepare and peri-
odically update growth man-
agement plans.
Hometown Democracy
wants community residents
to have greater input into crit-

ical growth decisions that are
routinely made about their
futures. The organization
believes that citizen referen-
dums on all comprehensive
plan changes would help.
There is a fear among
many political leaders that
passage of a constitutional
amendment that requires ref-
erendums on all comprehen-
sive plan changes could bring
new development in Florida
to a halt and hurt the state's
growth-based economy.
Florida has a population of
more than 16 million resi-
dents. The state's population
has doubled every decade
since 1940. It is projected to
double again by 2030 to more
than 30 million residents,
which could overwhelm nat-
ural resources, such as water
supplies, without proper
planning.

South Siesta Key
Renourishment Project
Targeted for November,
2006
In spite of Sarasota County
making every effort to com-
plete the South Siesta Key
Beach Nourishment Project
prior to the next hurricane
season, the expected start'
date for the construction
phase of the project is being
revised due to a lack of avail-c
abilitytof qualified contrac-
tors, County officials
announced today. Current
workload, in part due to
storm activity during the 2005
hurricane season, has con-
tractors committed to previ-
ous jobs, and unavailable to


support a February start date.
The County had hoped to
solicit construction bids this
week,'however, qualified con-
tractors have indicated that
due to prior commitments
they would not be able to
support the schedule require-
ments.
County officials have been
working directly with State
and Federal agencies to expe-
dite the permitting process


and are disappointed with
this turn of events. Com-
missioner Nora Patterson
expressed the general county
sentiment, "Naturally I am
very disappointed."
However, I can,t say thank
you enough to the State and
Federal agencies and
Congressional staffs who took
our requests to heart and
worked to expedite required
permitting activities.

Class limitations forcing MCC students to commute


BY CHRISTINA KALIHER
SUN INTERN


More than 210 students
are commuting from South
Sarasota County to the Bra-
denton Manatee Community
College campus for classes
even though the Venice cam-
pus is more convenient for
them..
The class offerings on the
Venice campus, just miles
from North Port, are continu-
ing to expand, but not fast
enough to keep a number of
students from feeling pressure
on their wallets and their time.
With gas prices more than
$2 per gallon, a student may
need to take on an extra day at
work just to pay for the gas
used to drive to Bradenton.
Students are spending time
driving about 47 miles from
Venice to Bradenton. This can
cause scheduling conflicts
with babysitters and employ-
ers.
Students are driving at


Venice campus does not have
enough students to offer all
the programs Bradenton
does. But, with the Venice
campus growing 10 percent a
year, expansion is planned.
MCC Dean of Instruction
Darlene Wedler-Johnson said,
"Venice is not a full-service
campus," and explained if the
Venice campus were to dupli-
cate the programs available
on the Bradenton campus,
less technologies and fewer
services would be available
for students, faculty and staff.
The Venice campus has
expanded to include some of
the high-demand programs
offered in Bradenton. For
example, Venice now offers
classes for the nursing pro-
gram, graphic design pro-
gram, legal assisting program'
and English assistance pro-
gram.
Choice problems
Core courses such as
math, composition, science


least an hour out of their way and basic business are easy to
to attend class because the enroll in. The problem arises


when .elective classes are
needed.
Enough electives are
offered on the Venice campus
to earn a general education
associate of arts degree, but
students planning to transfer
to a four-year university have
specific prerequisites they
must take in order to be
accepted into college. These
courses vary by major and by
college where a wide range of
electives is potentially needed.:
More elective classes have
recently been added. to the
Venice campus. These in-
clude creative writing,
African-American literature,
introduction to film, funda-
mentals for biology and intro-
duction to chemistry.
But classes on the Venice
campus are sometimes drop-
ped the first .day of class due
to low enrollment.
Michael Mears, dean of
instruction, said in order for
a class to proceed, at least 12
students must enroll in that
section.
"This is a major inconve-


nience for students, requiring
them to reschedule their
classes, reconsider their
*course load and possibly
adjust their work schedule,"
he said.
School officials are aware
. of the limitations and incon-
veniences of the Venice cam-
pus. They encourage students
to voice their concerns and
are open to suggestions.
"Section analyses are done
at the beginning and end of
each semester to see where
and when to add more sec-
tions," Wedler-Johnson said.
Options to driving
These analyses report the
number of students enrolled
in particular classes, which
class times had high enroll-
ment numbers and which
class cut-off numbers were
overridden to allow more stu-
dents into a section.
Also, surveys are distrib-
uted to students. Surveys
often show students are in-
terested in additional courses,
but they generally select var-


Two schools proposed for West Villages development


BY ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER


North Port Planning and
Zoning Ad viso ry Board mem-
bers unanimously approved a
change to the map for the
proposed West Villages that
allocates space for two new
schools near Manatee Com-
munity College on Dec. 1. The
map still needs city commis-
sion approval before being
finalized.
"The two sites include 30
acres for an elementary school
and 15 acres for a technical
high school adjacent to
MCC," said Planning and
Zoning Director Sam Jones.
The map was previously
approved by the board with
the condition that the school'
sites be shown.
Jones went on to explain
that a middle school is
planned for the area south of
West Villages, but since it is
still in the conceptual stage, it
will not be shown on the map.
The West Villages site, com-
posed of 8,000 acres west of
River Road on both the north
'and south sides of U.S. 41, is
being developed in several
stages.
"The high school will be
located where it is to take
advantage of the synergy be-
tween the high school and
MCC," he said. "The 15 (acres)
across. from the school is
what the (Sarasota County)
School Board has determined
is necessary."
Board member Jim Thiele
questioned whether the tech-
nical high school would also
provide. a regular high school
curriculum.
"Is it going to be a regular
high school? Will it have re-
quirements for English or
languages in addition to
technical skills?" he asked.
Pam Truitt, special consul-
tant to the city, explained the


purpose she believes the
school will serve.
"This type of education
facility is for students who
don'tplan to continue on to
higher education two-year
or four-year college," said
Truitt. "It would teach things
along the lines of graphic
design and autoshop.
"In Sarasota," Truitt con-
tinued, "students from River-
view High School spend part
of the day at Riverview, where
they get their regular curricu-
lum. Then they go to Sarasota
County Technical Institute for
the rest of the day. Based upon
conversations I've had with
members of the school board
and this format, it seems like
the same would occur here.",
Keeping them local ,_ .
Jones pointed out that
North Port's explosive growth,
and the decrease in the city's
median age, warrant the
school's existence.
"The number of school
children is increasing, and not
all in our population are go-
ing to be college-bound,"
Jones said. "This facility will
provide for those who want to.
be graphic artists, not get
their Ph.Ds. They won't have
to travel to Sarasota; the
school will be right here in the
city."
Jeff Boone, the attorney
representing Fourth Quarter
Properties, the developer of
West Villages, noted that the
company has worked closely
with the Sarasota County
school district since the fall of
2004 to plan for these two
schools.
"Fifteen acres is appropri-
ate for the technical high
school," he said. "Since it will
be only technical, (the school
board) doesn't need land for
athletic fields, practice fields
and auditoriums, which at
regular schools takes up a lot

Board member Bob Bruhn
asked Boone if there were
athletic fields planned for the
proposed elementary school.
"If so, Nill the community
have the opportunity to use
them? We all pay county taxes
and school board taxes, so
do you know?" he asked.
Boone noted that these


schools are still in the con-
ceptual stage, and that only
their general locations were
being added, to the map.
However, both schools will
be within North Port's city
limits.

ied different times to take the
class.
Sometimes students gen-
erate petitions to make
school officials aware of the
need for a particular class.
However, petitions show an
unrealistic number of stu-
dents planning to enroll in
the proposed class.
"Usually only half of the
students who sign the peti-
tion actually sign up for the ,
requested class," Mears said.
"If the need arises classes
can be created."
Distance learning classes
are offered as .an alternative
for commuter students. Dis-
tance learning courses are
online classes where assign-
ments are posted on class
Web sites or e-mailed to
students. Almost all course
work is done from home
computers. Online courses
rarely cause time conflicts.
However, these classes re-


quire more discipline.
In addition, video confer-
encing classes are also of-
fered. Video conferencing
classes are an alternative for
students who need lecture
time to learn material. The
lessons are videotaped for
students to watch at a time
convenient for them.
These courses differ from
distance learning classes in
that students are not requir-
ed to teach themselves the
material. The professor gen-
erally plays a more active
role in these classes than in
distance learning.
MCC's future expansion
plan for the Venice campus
'includes classrooms and
office buildings behind the
new 800 building; trees in the
parking lot; a drop-off area;
volleyball courts; a walking
trail around the lake; a stage;
more parking; and an out-
side reading area.

relates to the spirit of cooper-

SUN FILE PHOTO BY JEFF TAVARES
The Venice Avenue Bridge.

Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Shannon Staub didn't
need too many words to sum,
up her opinion in an e-mail
afterward to Heinig, who has
only been on the job for a
month.
"Welcome to county gov-
ernment. Sorry that your first
venture was into hostile terri-
tory," wrote Staub, who rep-
resents much of South
County. -
Projects in jeopardy
Calling the city "hostile
territory" threatens to derail
a number of joint planning
agreements between the' city
and county.
The two governments
have been discussing joint
redevelopment standards
along U.S. 41 Bypass, new
architectural guidelines on
East Venice Avenue outside of
city limits, shared mainte-
nance of Venice Avenue
Bridge and extending water
and sewer services to Cas-
persen Beach.
But all of those great ideas
hinge on communications
between city and county
staff, and as of now, those at
the top do not feel like that
is happening.
When asked about the
comment by Staub, the
Venice city manager didn't
seem surprised. Black con-
sidered it typical of the per-
vasive mentality at the coun-
ty level whenever it has to
deal with any of the cities.
"It reflects an unfortunate
condescending perspective
that many of the cities feel
when dealing with the coun-
ty," Black said. "There seems
to be no willingness to com-
municate."
Lack of interaction
Aside from the random
accusatory e-mail, no face-to-


The Johnsons became very
involved in the business when
Florence Duke passed away in
1972. By 1995 her dad's health
was failing, so she bought him
out, but he still came in almost
every day right up till he
passed away at 72.
Hands on
Since acquiring the nurs-
ery the Johnsons have
expanded into landscaping,
and Lynn does a lot of special-
ty. orders of plantings during
the holiday seasons.
Duke had always been
known for his specialist advice
and the Johnsons continued
this service, analyzing samples
brought in by customers and
offering advice and methods


face conversations have hap-
pened between city and
county planning staff- on
any of these joint planning
agreements since the spring,
according to the city.
Venice officials and staff
complain that the actions of
county staff do not match
the direction given by county
commissioners.
The most recent example
is the proposed interlocal
agreement on cleaning and
painting the "Dirty Bridge," as
some in the city call Venice
Avenue Bridge. City council
and county commissioners
agreed at the Feb. 23 joint
meeting that their two staffs
would work together to create
an agreement to paint and
maintain the bridge.
According to the city man-
ager, there has been no con-
versation the past 10 months
until a memo and proposed
agreement showed up in the
mail Tuesday from County
Administrator Jim Ley.
Venice is asked to approve
the binding agreement within
seven days. The county will


to resolve their problems.
Because their children have
other interests one teaches
school and the other has his
own business it has been
decided to sell the business as
a going concern. Broker
Thomas C. Sivertsen has the
first time listing for it in 50
years. The 3,500-square-feet
building together with the out-
side nursery occupy almost 1
acre, and the price
is $999,500.
Lynn paid tribute to those
very good customers who
have been with Duke's since
her mom and dad were in
business.
"We're all getting a little
older," she said. "Yes, I will
miss it because it is kinda
my social. When you work all
the time six days, 8 to 5, you
don't have much social."
She doesn't know what her
husband has in mind when
they retire, although they
own a peanut farm in Geor-
gia and houses they rent out.
But Nokomis is their home
and they will be staying, just
going to Georgia to visit.
"The business is very suc-
cessful," she said. "It's a lot of
fun and we have a lot of good
people. We're not about the
store, we're hands on. People
like that because they come
in and tell me."

bridge, at a cost of nearly
$167,000, and the city would
assume to maintain the
bridge's appearance "in per-
petuity."

Black feels as if Venice is
being told what the county
will do, rather than having a
discussion with the city.
He's also criticized Sara-
sota County for allowing the
joint redevelopment agree-

collect dust on some county
staffer's desk, and for the city
not being invited to assist
county staff with the East

before making a decision."
District spokeswoman
Sheila Weiss confirmed a
developer contacted the
superintendent months ago
about moving the high
school.
"It never went anywhere,"
Weiss said. "We would never
do anything without com-
munity input. Not something
as important as moving a
school."
The district declined to
name the developer.
Officials say the rumored
land swap hasn't gone be-
yond informal discussions.
"When the school board
is prepared to have a conver-


station about moving Venice
High, then we will," said
board member Laura Ben-
son. "Right now there's no
public comment because
there's nothing to comment
on. The board has not dis-
cussed this issue."
In due time
In October the board ap-
proved a tentative facilities
work plan that informed the
Florida Department of Edu-
cation it intends to set aside
$14.7 million for Venice High
from projected revenues in
2009-2010.
Venice High is not on the '
district's five-year plan yet,


but placement on the depart-
ment's work plan indicates
it's high on the list of projects
awaiting funding.
A finance staff person
with the district said it's too
early to decide whether the
funds would be used for
major renovation or to build
a new school on the same
location, or even to move
the school.
Education gadflies say the
district is likely waiting until
after the March property tax'
referendum before tackling;
the issue.

Second chance
ARB members were sym-

ordered an immediate re-

January. They will consider

he can prove this plastic fence

City Attorney Wayne Hall
complimented Baszlo's
efforts, and pointed out the

more about the role of city
government rather than what
it takes to build a fence during
this Eagle Scout project.
Part of the problem has
been communication,
because on each trip to city
hall, the building department
revealed another hoop to hop
through.
On the teen's first trip in
June, he was told to get a
licensed contractor. Skip
Peschke, president of Fireside
Homes of Venice, agreed to
help Baszlo with the project.
The second trip included
Peschke, who. was told of all
the application requirements:.


On the third trip they were
told a meeting in front of the
ARB was needed because the
replacement fence wasn't in
compliance.

will do.

Stickney Point Bridge could be regulated by April


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


Just about the time in mid-
April when winter residents
begin to leave sunny Sarasota
and head north, the U.S.
Coast Guard figures it will
have cleared all the bureau-
cratic hurdles necessary to
restrict Stickney Point Road
Bridge openings to only on
the hour and half-hour.
It's not that big a deal,
because on an average day
the bridge only opens on
request for boat traffic about
twice an hour. But during
the busy winter season,
when recreational boaters
crowd the Intracoastal Water-
way, it could make a differ-
ence.
Stickney Point Road Bridge
openings can increase the
severity of Siesta Key auto-
mobile traffic gridlock that
occurs at the choked Mid-
night Pass Road intersection,
especially when it opens
three times an hour to let
sailboats and powerboats
through.
'"A notice of proposed rule
making is in our legal office
waiting for a signature," Coast
Guard Seventh District Bridge
Chief Barry Dragon said
Monday. "Then it will be
sent to Washington, D.C., and
published for 60 days in the
notice to mariners."
Unless there is a wave of
protest from the boating
community, Dragon said he
expects the notice about
proposed new regulations
to appear until mid-March.
Then it will take the Coast
Guard another 30 days to put
the regulations into effect.
"That's assuming nobody
complains," he said. "If nec-
essary, we could hold a pub-
lic hearing. I've checked the
location and don't think there
will be a problem. It may
hamper boaters somewhat
at first, but they will adjust.
Drivers will ,be ableto time ,
their trips to the openings."
Short of limiting the num-
ber of cars on Siesta Key, there
is no easy solution to winter
season traffic gridlock at the
Midnight Pass Road inter-
section with Stickney Point
Road. The Coast Guard unex-
pectedly stepped up to help
county traffic officials, if only
a little bit.
Last March, the county
commission asked traffic
officials to recommend "any-
thing that might influence"
southbound Midnight Pass
Road traffic, which backs up
for a mile or more at the
Stickney Point Road left turn
arrow and has no place to go.
Traffic Operations Man-
ager Don Galloway respond-
ed: "You can only stuff so
many pounds in a 5-pound
bag."
Having previously butted
heads with the Coast Guard,
he initially didn't hold out
much hope for fewer bridge
openings.
Dragon changed his mind.
"Sometimes we'll consider
bridge openings on the hour

cities.
Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton admits there are' com-
munication problems, but
he believes cooler heads will
prevail if everyone "steps
back, takes a deep breath"
and returns to the table with
a clear head.
"No one is walking away
from this with clean hands,"
Thaxton said. "The county,
the city we're all at fault
in this.
"We're both kettles calling
the kettle black. ... We're
both equally part of the
problem, but that's just my
opinion. I think we approve
far too much development
in the eastern and southern
parts of the county without
an infrastructure plan in
place to accommodate that.
We need to fix it."

and half-hour if it can help
motorists time their trips on
and off a barrier island so
they don't get caught,"
Dragon explained. "We're try-
ing to balance boaters' needs
with transportation needs."
All the federal agency re-
quested of the county was: '1)


a month of logs that reflect
how often the bridge opens
and closes; 2) level of service
traffic counts at the busy
intersection; and 3) step-by-
step information about how
to open and close the bridge.
The bridge is owned by the
Florida Department of Trans-


portation, but its operation is
contracted out to a private
company. It is manned 24
hours a day, and opens on
demand not more than once
every 15 minutes for boat
traffic through the waterway.
Two things compound
traffic congestion at the


Midnight Pass Road intersec-
tion with Stickney Point Road
during the busy winter tourist
season: 1) more automobile
traffic; and 2) more recre-
ational boat traffic. The com-
bination results in gridlock.
Other than 30-minute
scheduled bridge openings,


the county has few other
options for relieving Siesta
Key congestion. It previously
tried turning off the Midnight
Pass Road traffic signal at
Stickney Point Road and hav-
ing off-duty sheriff's deputies
direct traffic but that wasn't
very successful.

Bird sanctuary issues wake-up call


Hospital applicant

finds fault with ruling


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

The internationally fa-
mous Pelican Man's Bird
Sanctuary in Sarasota is tight-
ening its belt.
"Unless we improve our
immediate operational short-
fall," PMBS Executive
Director Jeffrey A. Dering stat-
ed in a release, "the sanctuary
may have to cease all opera-
tions in just a few months."
As part of a cost-cutting
effort, PMBS closed its thrift
stores in Sarasota and Venice
the day before Thanksgiving
due to a loss of revenue.
Rising costs of wild bird
rehabilitation hospital care,
plus rising fuel costs for res-
cues and a slower than usual
tourist season also are
responsible for the thinning
out, according to Dering.
Dering said future plans
for a capital campaign for
new, expanded wild bird hos-
pital facilities and related
educational programs may
have to be shelved unless a
current donor drive is suc-
cessful.
The name of the present
donor drive is the "We Are For


The Birds Campaign" and it
started Thursday, Dec. 8.
As part of the campaign,
the public will be admitted
free to the PMBS on Dec. 17-
18, according to a staffer.
Featured on Dec. 17 only
will be a full-service mobile
veterinary clinic offering dis-
counts on dog and cat vacci-
nations.
In addition, tables will be
set up for a gift and used-
book sale.
As part of an educational
outreach program, PMBS will
work with local schools, uni-
versities, foundations, corpo-
rations and governments to
promote the well-being of
wild birds and conduct scien-
tific research.
Ancient history
PMBS was founded in 1981
by the late Dale Shields who
was nicknamed "The Pelican
Man."
Shields died in 2003.
In 1988, the city of Sarasota
leased the Pelican Man's Bird
Sanctuary Inc., 2 acres of land
on City Island for $1 per year.
The PMBS Wildlife
Rehabilitation Hospital and
Education Center is one of


the largest nonprofit rescue,
rehabilitation, release and
education centers in the
United States.
Volunteers for the Pelican
Man's rescue team respond to
more than 6,000 rescue calls
each year. Since 1985, more
than 80,000 area birds and
other wildlife have been treat-
ed.
Funding is totally depen-
dent on private donations
and volunteers.
Donations can be made to
the Pelican Man's 'Bird
Sanctuary, 1708 Ken
Thompson Parkway,
Sarasota, 34236.
Donations also can be
made by calling (941) 388-
-1444, or visiting www.peli-
canman.org.
Recent history
PMBS was rocked by alle-
gations of mismanagement,
mistreatment of animals and
improper clinic practices two
years ago.
Five people were fired after
presenting former PMBS
Executive Director Mona
Schonbrunn with a list of 25
complaints about misman-
agement and mistreatment of


animals.
Many of those who were
not terminated resigned.
The five, along with about
35 other staff members, and
volunteers, were let go after
Schonbrunn read the letter.
No formal animal cruelty
or mistreatment charges were
ever filed.
However, a former PMBS
clinic manager under
Schonbrunn was arrested
and charged with obtaining a
controlled substance by fraud
in November 2003.
At one point, the state in
effect closed down the
Pelican Man's Bird Sanctuary
clinic by issuing a cease-and-
desist order to Schonbrunn
and the PMBS hospital direc-
tor.
The Florida Department of
Business and Professional
Regulation issued
Schonbrunn the order for not
having a veterinary premises
permit and employing unli-
censed people to practice vet-
erinary medicine.

"We're very disappointed
in his ruling."
That's how Josh Putter, the
divisional vice president in
charge of the area for Health
Management Associates Inc.,
responded to the news that
North Port's hopes for a hos-
pital had been dashed by
Administrative Judge T. Kent
Wetherell II.
HMA was one of two
health care companies that
applied to the state earlier this
year for a certificate of need to
establish a facility in North
Port. Universal Health Care
Services filed for a 120-bed
hospital and HMA for an 80-
bed facility.
Last week Wetherell issued
a recommended order advis-
ing the state to reject both
applications, citing lack of
population and the proximity
of "six hospitals within a 30-
minute drive of North Port...
four are within a 17-minute
drive."
"I don't know what num-
bers he's using," Putter said,
"but if anyone's been to North
Port, they know there are


more than 35,000 people
here. All you have to do is
drive around town."
Putter said there is a con-
stant and heavy flow of traffic
along U.S. 41.
He hopes Florida's Agency
for Health Care Administra-
tion will reject Wetherell's rec-
ommendation in favor of its
original preliminary decision
to award a CON to HMA.
However, AHCA tends to fol-
low judges' recommenda-
tions about 95 percent of the
time, Putter said.
If AHCA accepts Wether-
ell's ruling, HMA could appeal
the decision to the First
District Court of Appeal in
Tallahassee. North Port does-
n't have the legal right to do
so.
Ultimately, Putter thinks
that North Port's population
is more than high enough to
justify the construction of a
hospital there.
"Just look at Home Depot
andWal-Mart," he said. "They
don't build supercenters in lit-
tle towns."

Grouper catches reduced for recreational fishermen next year


The lower bag limit will be in effect in federal
waters Jan. 1 under a previous emergency rule
and is set to become permanent later in 2006.


BY ERIC STAATS
NAPLES DAILY NEWS


Royal Harbor fisherman Jim
Pergola likes the thrill of the
catch, but every once in a while
he likes to eat what he catches,
too.
He and other recreational
fishermen will be able to keep
fewer red grouper from state
waters of the Gulf of Mexico
,:under a rule the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission adopted Dec. 1 at
a meeting in Key Largo.
The rule reduces the bag
limit for red grouper caught in
state waters from two fish a day
to one fish a day, matching a red
grouper bag limit in federal
waters.
"That's not much to bring
back to the table," Pergola said.
The reduced bag limits are
meant to keep a rebuilding plan
on track for the red grouper
population, which some scien-
tists say is overfished. But
Pergola saidhe'snotthe cause of
'the problem and shouldn't be
punished.


The problem, many recre-
ational fishermen say, is com-
mercial boats that deplete
grouper stocks byusinglongline
gear miles-long cables
equipped with thousands of
hooks.
Longliners say their large
catches aren't a problem
because they stay within the
commercial sector's annual
catch quota.
Commercial fishermen, not
all of them longliners, can catch
5.3 million pounds of red
grouper each year compared to
an allowable recreational catch
of 1.25 million pounds yearly.
The allocation is based on
historic catch levels, and federal
regulators have agreed to con-
sider changing the allocation.
If either the commercial or
recreational sector exceeds its
share of the total catch, that
throws the rebuilding plan for
red grouper stocks off track, sci-
entists say.
It's a match
The commercial sector has
had to shut down before the


end of the year in 2004 and 2005
when commercial boats
reached their quota.
Attention turned to the
recreational sector earlier this
year when data showed that it
had overfished its share of the
catch by more than 130 percent
in 2004.
Recreational fishermen dis-
pute the data.
The Gulf of Mexico Fishery
Management Council voted last
month to lower the red grouper
bag limit in federal waters to
one fish and to close the recre-
ational catch of red grouper
from Feb. 15 to' March 15,

matching an existing closure for
commercial boats.,


The proposal is under review
by the National Marine
Fisheries Service, which is part
of NOAA, and it is questionable
whether the reviewwill be done
in time for the closure to be in
effect in 2006.
The Coastal Conservation
Associations in Florida, which
advocates f6r recreational fish-
ing, objected to the month-long
closure but didn't oppose the
lower bag limit in either state or
federal waters.
The lower bag limit will be in
effect in federal waters Jan. 1
under a previous emergency
rule and is set to become per-
manent later in 2006. -
The state rule will be in


effect sometime in early "It defeats the purpose of

Local land trust earns $6.6 million state grant


The Sarasota Conservation Foundation,
only in existence a little more than two years,
negotiated the purchase of a 4.3-acre parcel on
Little Sarasota Bay next to Spanish Point.


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


A fledgling conservation
organization created by a
Sarasota County couple just
two years ago has been award-
ed $6.6 million by the Florida
Communities Trust, one of the
largest grants ever given to a
private, nonprofit land trust
by the state agency.
"We are absolutely thrill-
ed," said Albert Joerger, who
founded the Sarasota Con-
servation Foundation with
his wife, Paulene, in 2003. The
i Osprey-based organization
has raised $9 million for the
protection of Sarasota County
barrier islands, bays and
1 beaches.
"Our goal is to have the
people who come here 50
years from now be able to
reach the water and go fish-
ing in places that are protect-
ed forever," he said. "My wife
and I were winter residents.
We looked at each other one
day and agreed somebody
needs to create a land trust.
So we did."
Joerger is only 38 years
old. He was educated in eco-
nomics and landscape archi-
tecture at Cornell University,
where he also received a doc-
torate in environmental in-
formation science. The Na-
ture Conservancy provided
I his on-the-job training.
Area residents are familiar
with The Nature Conservancy
because it has helped Sarasota
-County implement an envi-
ronmentally sensitive lands
preservation program.
"It's a wonderful organiza-
tion," Joerger said. "I used to
be the assistant state director
i ,inNew Jersey."
,ron T'he Florida Legislaturecre-
ated the Florida Commnttriities
Trust as an arm of the Florida
i Department of Community
Affairs, and annually provides
f it with funds to help commu-
nities satisfy environmental
; obligations in their compre-
hensive land use plans.
| Most of the money goes to
counties and cities, but some
*j of it is steered to nonprofit
' land trusts such as the Sara-
' sota Conservation Founda-
tion, if they submit grant
applications that satisfy the
state's criteria for conserving
-* and protecting sensitive
parcels.
The vision
The $6.6 million will help
the local foundation purchase
a 4.3-acre tract adjacent to
I the southern boundary of
Historic Spanish Point on
Little Sarasota Bay. Joerger
will not announce the pur-
chase price and details until
B the agreement is finalized
Early next year.
"We started the process of
acquiring this/property 18
months ago," he said. "There
is a colonial revival house,
three cracker cottages and a
| carriage house on the site. We
, want to create a center for the
arts, environment and rec-
reation for the community."
Land trusts are nonprofit
organizations created to pro-
tect land for its natural, rec-
reational, scenic, historical,
and in some cases pro-
ductive value. They are also
called conservancies and
foundations, ,and there are
more than 1,200 located
throughout the country.
They typically: 1) purchase
or accept donations of land, or
Conservation easements that
restrict the use of land; 2)
Manage .trust-owned land or
Island owned by others; 3)
Help governments buy and

I Englewood


manage land; and 4) collabo-
rate with other nonprofit
organizations.


Because they are created
as nonprofit organizations,
land trusts enjoy tax benefits
that allow some land and
conservation easement do-
nations to qualify for in-
come, estate or gift tax sav-
ings. Land trusts often work
with landowners who don't
want to negotiate with gov-


ernments.
A case in point is the Trust
for'Public Lands, which suc-.
cesssfully negotiated a com-
plicated three-way deal be-
tween Sarasota County, CSX
Transport and Seminole-Gulf
Railway for the public acqui-
sition of a 12.3-mile railroad
corridor between Sarasota


and Venice.
The $11.75 million pur-
chase by the county will pro-
vide the community with a
rails-to-trails linear park for
bikers, hikers and joggers.
County officials tried for
more than a decade to negoti-
ate with the railroad compa-
nies, then asked the trust to


help facilitate a deal.
Joerger and his small staff
have opened a Sarasota
Conservation Foundation
-office in Osprey, encouraged
members to join and estab-
lished a computer Web site
(www.sarasotaconservation.
org). He can be reached by
telephone at 918-2100.

No apartments? Let them buy a condo


n Wednesday's editorial we bemoaned
the erosion of the city's Historic
Apartment District. Today we discuss the
larger issue: the ever-shrinking supply of
housing for lower- and middle-income fami-
lies.
Of course, this is not a new subject for us,
and we are encouraged that some steps are
being taken to provide housing in the near
future. But while we are waiting for them to
come out of the ground, existing affordable
properties particularly rentals are dis-
appearing, to be replaced by units only a
select few will be able to afford.
From a couple of perspectives, that's not a
bad thing. In many cases such upscale hous-
ing actually reduces the density in the area,
lightening the load on our already overbur-
dened roads, utilities and such. Also, people


in expensive homes pay a lot in property
taxes, the basic "fuel" that makes our school
system and other services go.
But there's the nib: Where are the people
who actually provide those services sup-
posed to live? Or the retirees whose apart-
ment complexes and mobile home parks are
being sold out from under them? The answer
is increasing becoming: not here.
Admittedly, it's not only housing costs that
are causing the problem. Wages could be
higher, and maybe efforts to bring high-tech
businesses to the cotmty will help in that
regard. But there's no chance that pay in the
bulk of the service sector will rise anywhere
near the level it would take to buy a house at
the "average" price of more than $300,000.
For years North Port was Venice's bed-
room community, offering reasonably priced
\.*


houses reasonably close. But prices there
aren't what they used to be, and when gas
prices reached the $3-per-gallon range even
a relatively short trip up 1-75 became quite
costly.
If you're not making big money to begin
with, any change that keeps more of it in your
pocket needs to be considered.
Manpower Inc. recently asked more than
1,300 American workers if gasoline prices
affect their ability to get to work. The results
found that 35 percent are thinking about
changing jobs and another 4.5 percent have
already done so in order to reduce the costs
of commuting.
If workers can't afford to live here and can't
afford to drive here, who will fill the jobs they
leave open? It surely won't be the people
moving into the condos and houses replac-


ing all that affordable housing.
Taking steps to encourage the preserva-
tion of the Historic Apartment District and
other rental housing within the city limits
would be a small part of the solution, but it
would be something. Quite frankly, we think
the problem 'is so, serious that we'll take
whatever we can get.
And it's something the city can do.
Although its deal with Habitat for Humanity
for affordable housing is laudable, we'd like
to see the city do more to address the prob-
lem in cooperation with the private sector.
Certainly higher levels of government need
to play a bigger role, but, but all levels should
do what they can.
Adding new units to the affordable hous-
ing inventory isn't going to do much good if
existing ones are vanishing even faster.


Bait and




Switch


LORRAINE COCCARO
COLUMNIST


It's no wonder that Barbara
Ehrenreich had a full house at
the Hyatt last week.
The author of the bestseller
"Nickel and Dimed" had
exposed the difficulties of
minimum-wage jobs by
working as a waitress, clean-
ing maid and Wal-Mart clerk,
and then writing about the
experience.
Now she was in town to
talk about her new book, "Bait
and Switch: The (Futile)
Pursuit of the American
Dream," which she wrote at
the request of many of her
readers who were middle-
class college grads but had
lost their jobs and were in as
dire straights as those workers
in "Nickel and Dimed."
She described how, dis-
guised with a new identity,
she began her job search by
hiring a career coach, and
attended boot camps, job
fairs, networking events and
evangelical job-search min-
istries. All seemed more inter-
ested in selling her more ser-
vices than in finding her ajob.
She applied to 50 pharma-
ceutical and health-related
companies (she has a doctor-
ate in biology from
Rockefeller University), but in
the year that she spent look-
ing the closest'she ever came
to finding a job was at AFLAC,
the insurance company.
However, that turned out
to be a sales position, which
she had already said she did
not want. It would also have
required her to invest thou-
sands of dollars for courses, a
license and books, and she
would only be paid by com-
mission.
From this experience
Ehrenreich could understand
the depression she found in
so many of her fellow middle-
class job seekers. She could
understand their passivity
brought on by hopelessness.
It is the same hopelessness
that is found among many
minimum-wage workers and
welfare recipients.
There are more middle-
class job seekers than ever
before, sometimes because of
massive layoffs. The criminal
or unethical behavior of
upper management brought
about thousands of layoffs in


Enron, WorldCom and Arthur
Andersen.
Incompetence has brought
30,000 layoffs at General
Motors, 7,000 at Ford and
7,000 at Merck 11 percent
of Merck's work force. In addi-
tion, three research labs there
will close.
A viable middle class has
been the strength of our soci-
ety. It is being laid off. Our cor-
porations aie losing their
international competitive-
ness because of flabby, self-
indulgent, greedy mangge-
ment at the top and a cowed
middle management that is
just trying to hold on to a job.
The government has
ignored the underemployed.
It has stopped collecting sta-
tistics on those workers who
have given up the middle-
class job search and found
employment at a much lower
level.
This administration is cut-
ting huge holes in our safety
net a safety net that is now
more desperately needed
than ever so that taxes can
be reduced for those who are
at the upper income levels.
One of the biggest holes in
the safety net is health insur-
ance, which is often lost along
with pensions when a worker
is laid off.
Ehrenreich suggests a uni-
versal health care system. She
suggests a raise in the mini-
mum wage with efforts
toward a living wage. This
would be especially signifi-
cant for the thousands of
hotel, restaurant and retail
workers.
She suggests that middle-
income workers unite with
the lower-income workers to
bring about change. Too often
the middle class has looked
down on those with a lower
income, but now the two
groups are in the same boat. .
She calls for a grassroots
campaign that can change
things. In the 1970s the femi-
nists did it. Women came
together at the kitchen table.
They were mocked, but it
worked. It was the same for
the civil rights movement.
We are a country of collec-
tive activists. We can make a
difference.
In fact Ehrenreich is so
serious about this that she
passed around a pad and
people signed up. Elena, Joe,
Ann and Jane agreed to coor-
dinate the area volunteers.
Perhaps a new grassroots
movement, can be started.
Then, perhaps the pursuit of
the American dream will no
longer be bait and switch.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Celebrating Santa? You're worshipping Satan


Editor:
Your heading, "Keep kids innocent," should read, "Keep
children deceived."
Promoting belief in Santa Claus cannot and never will pro-
duce innocence. Parents use this false belief to cause children
to behave, i.e., "You better be good 'cause Santa Claus comes
tonight," so they may receive the gifts of their dreams.
Children from infancy on should be taught about the baby
Jesus who was God's son and came to live on earth. He came to
bring a great message to all peoples, old and young alike.
The word Christmas comes from Christ. If you want to pro-
mote the myth of Santa Claus, do it another day Dec. 27, or
Jan. 15 but Christmas is the big birthday celebration of Jesus
Christ. Focusing on another person other than Jesus is an
affront to God.
Try making another word out of Santa, using all five letters.
The only one I can make is Satan.
Satan'rejoices as people replace or focus on Santa instead of
Christ. St. Nicholas may or may not have been a real person,
but if he was a real saint, he gave gifts in the name of Jesus
Christ. He wold have never intended to be used as a figure to
obscure the truth.
The birth of Jesus Christ, son of God, lord and savior of the
world is celebrated Dec. 25, and Santa has no place in
Christmas.
My Christmas prayer and wish for everyone: Seek him, Jesus
Christ, with all'your heart. He has gifts and blessings waiting for
you beyond your wildest dreams.

Nothing new
under the sun
Editor:
An article published Sept.
4, 2003 (more than two years
ago), entitled "Energy Dept.
launches inquiry 'into gas
prices," read as as follows:
"The Energy Department
is investigating whether price
gouging was involved in the
unusually large gasoline price
jump that followed the
Northeast power blackout
and continued through Labor
day weekend.
"Energy Secretary Spencer
Abraham told lawmakers
complaining about the sky-
rocketing price at gas pumps
that the department began an
inquiry this week to deter-


olam
nice


mine whether factors other
than normal market condi-
tions played a role in the price
increases. If irregularities are
found, the information could
be turned over to the Justice
Department or the Federal
Trade Commission.
"Gasoline prices, on a
national average, reached a
record $1.75 a gallon last
week, jumping more than 12
cents a gallon from the week
before. In some areas the run-
up was even higher, with dri-
vers reporting price increases
of a dime a gallon overnight.
"Abraham told a House
hearing on the electricity
blackout that while gasoline
prices normally increase in
the days leading up to the
heavily traveled Labor Day


weekend, the recent price
spikes 'struck me as being
unusually large,' prompting a
decision to look into the mat-
ter."
My question: Whatever
became of this inquiry. My
comment: Too soon we for-
get.

Cops should
set example
Editor:
Thank you to the writer
regarding the disposal of ciga-
rette butts. Finally somebody
else has the same feelings
regarding this as I do.
My biggest concern is
when I first moved to Venice
in 1998,1 I actually witnessed a
police officer guilty of throw-
ing his cigarette butt out of his
vehicle while he was on duty. I
was so irritated that I called
his department to inform the
chief. All I was told is that he
would mention it to the dri-
ver.
I was so upset to see our
own law enforcement guilty
of polluting our streets. If
people can get tickets for lit-
tering, why can our own
police department get away
with the same crime?

School lunch policy
is wasteful, hurtful

Editor:
Some things need to be
clarified.
The cooks did not "mistak-
enly" give my child a food
tray. A child enters the lunch
line, gets the normal food tray
and then punches in a pin


number. If no money is in the
account, then the child is sent
back to the kitchen, the food
on the tray is thrown away
and the child gets a peanut
butter-and-jelly sandwich.
If $40,000 is spent on
peanut butter-and-jelly sand-
wiches, how much does it
cost to throw out the original
food tray? Let's say a low esti-
mate of $50,000. Now we are
at $90,000. The uncollected
estimated charges are -only
$20,000. Does not anyone else
think this is ridiculous?
Let the children eat the
food. Why should they be
treated like a criminal, or dis-
criminated against because of
no money in their account?
Next, get an updated
billing system that's sensible
so parents know where the
account stands. A 6-year-old
knows nothing about money
or yellow billing slips, and to
send this home with the child
is unacceptable.
. Throwing food in the trash
-what lesson is this teaching
the children? To those who
have children who have had a
PB &J sandwich at lunch, ask
them; they will tell you they
first had a hot lunch and then
it was taken away.
Mentally for the child this
has to be a nightmare. It's
time for a change.

Give us full-timers a break
Inconsiderate tourists. In response to a letter in today's
Gondolier Sun regarding our seasonal residents and would we
have an economy without them: The writer makes it sound
that we would all be in line for our welfare checks if it weren't
for our seasonal residents. There are many of us here whose
employment has nothing to do with the tourists. My only com-
plaint about the tourists is that they show no consideration for
the full-time residents. There is no reason for them to be on the
road when we're trying to go to work, or in the grocery stores at
five o'clock when we get home. They have all day. Yes, they are
causing long lines at our restaurants and it's impossible for
those of us who work here all year long to be able to go out on
Friday night and have a quick, relaxing dinner. If they would
learn to drive properly, figure out where they're going before
they get there and show some, consideration for those of us
who live here all year long, maybe they would be treated with
more consideration.


Frozen turkey. I'm calling
to voice my displeasure with
our local meat market here on
the island. They advertised
fresh turkeys for Thanks-
giving and we ordered one
and when we picked it up
Wednesday morning, we did-
n't check it. On Thursday,
when we checked the turkey,
it was not a fresh Turkey. It
was a prepackaged Carolina
brand, previously frozen
turkey with thawing instruc-
tions on the package. We went
back to the market and gave
them the bag and the paper
that came with it with our
phone number and we were
told that they would call us
and no one's ever called. So
we were just wondering how
many other people received
prepackaged, previously
frozen turkeys.
Teach English. I'm talking
about the article in the paper
about the teachers and their
problems. I just wondered if it
wouldn't be easier to teach
the students English instead
of the teachers learning
Russian, Ukrainian or
Spanish. I just think that
sounds like a good idea.

MARY ANN RUPPEL
RUEST JOLUhVIV' I

Last April, I had the distinct
pleasure of being seated across
from Frances Rice at the first
Patriot Dinner, an event co-
sponsored byr the North Port
Area Republican Club and the
Republican Club of South
Sarasota County.
Knowing that Frances was
the founding member of the
SaraMana Black Republican
Club in Sarasota, but never
having had the pleasure of
meeting her, I was very inter-
ested in talking to her.
The usual "get acquainted"
conversation ensued be-
tween Frances and her hus-
band, Peter, and my escort
and me. We learned that
Frances and Peter moved to
Sarasota, in 1999 after he
retired from the U.S. Foreign
Service as the executive offi-
cer of a military police com-
pany. Frances, a native of
Atlanta, Ga., had met and
married Peter in Germany
where she was serving as the
commander of a WAC com-


"I
1.:


pany from 1969-1980.
Frances attended law
school and eventually served
as a special assistant to the
Army Judge Advocate General
and later as an adviser to the
Deputy Assistant Secretary of
Defense for Equal Opportu-
nity.
Frances became politically
active in 1982 and served as a
member of President Ronald
Reagan's Private Sector Initia-
tives Task Force.
This impressive background
was relayed at my probing, as
Frances is a very soft-spoken
and modest woman.
The dinner-dance contin-
ued and although I had
received an e-mail from
Frances thanking me for par-
ticipating in a SaraMana
event last summer, we had
not see one another since.
Recently I learned of the
formation of a grassroots
black Republican organiza-
tion called the Natiqnal Black
Republican Association,
which is headquartered in
Washington, D.C. And, lo and
behold, none other than our
own Frances Rice is the chair-
woman.
My curiosity thoroughly
piqued, I contacted Frances.
She told me that their inau-
gural meeting had been held

Ever curious me, I went to
that Web site. What intrigued
me was the long list of famous
black Republicans, past and
present: Mary McLeod Be-
thune; Don King; Martin Luther
King; Lynn Swann; Jackie
Robinson; Denzel Washington
and BookerT. Washington.
This I quote from Frances:
"We (NBRA) have adopted a
resolution on the moral issue of
racism. It provides historical
documentation that it was the
Republican Party, not the
Democratic Party, that fought
for the freedom and civil rights
for black Americans. And now
the Republican Party is fighting
for the educational and eco-
nomic advancement of black
Americans., The Republican
Party was started in 1854 as the
anti-slavery party, and the

and enrich her race.

Theater opening delayed


ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS

Bruce Frank, director of
Frank Theaters, stated the
opening of the new Galleria
Stadium 11 Movie Theater in
Galleria Plaza, Tamiami Trail,
South Venice has been
delayed.
"The company feels it has
more tweaking to do to im-
prove and complete the pro-
ject to 100 percent. We want
to open it with everything
working and no ongoing con-
struction, so it will be delayed
till later in January2006," con-
firmed Frank.
According to Frank the
company does not want to
pass up on an opportunity to
improve the theater, which is
being designed for long-term
use by the people of Venice. It
requires an additional four
weeks to deal with technical
issues.
Alterations are being made
in order to install the largest
wall-to-wall screens available,
in particular to ensure users
of handicapped seating have
the same viewing op-
portunities as those in the
center of the auditorium. In
addition, headsets ordered
for the hearing impaired are
on back-order.
"I'm very unhappy be-
cause we have a lot of dollars
- millions invested. I did-
n'twant to miss Thanksgiving
and the Christmas holidays,
but we need an extra 30 days,
so it is put back to the end of
January," said Frank.
Realtors vote on change
Almost 20 percent of the
900 members turned out for
an extensive, in-depth discus-
sion on the Venice Area Board
of Realtors' proposal to pro-
ceed with redeveloping its
headquarters at 680 Substa-.
tion Road off U.S. 41 Bypass
in Venice near the Holiday
Inn.
"After well directed conver-
sation, the vote of the mem-
bership was 155 for and 36
against moving forward with
our due diligence," said Brian
Meurs, VABR president.
The proposed new head-
quarters would double the
existing size to 6,000 square
feet, providing a very func-
tional building with technol-
ogy systems, state-of-the-art
training facilities and more
meeting rooms. The board
now has to work with the city
arid the county to find out
what it can do on the existing
lot.
First East Coast franchise
Success has been reported
for the new franchising Ven-
ice venture, A Better Solution
Inc., following our recent
BUSINEWS feature.

public accounting and taxa-
tion skills to offer individuals,
family and small corporate
organizations a comprehen-
sive approach to their finan-

ity to repay the loans of other
lenders.
SMH opening another
new campus
"This establishment, a
state-of-the-art ambulatory
medical center, represents a
huge step forward in our
strategy to develop a network
of conveniently located out-
patient services throughout
Sarasota County," comment-
ed Sarasota Memorial Hospi-
tal CEO Gwen MacKenzie at
the ground-breaking ceremo-
ny.
It took place this week at
Clark Road in Sarasota, where
an 82,400-square-foot Insti-
tute of Advanced Medicine
Campus and Healthplex will
be located, opening in early
2007 to provide neurological,
rehabilitation and diagnostic
outpatient services.
Memberships will be of-
fered this summer to the
42,400-square-foot Health-
plex Medically Orientated
Fitness Center, with an in-
door lap pool, therapy pool,
basketball/volleyball court,
strength training area, cardio-
vascular fitness and aerobics
facilities on the campus.
Greek restaurant opens.
A former chef at Sarasota's
Tournament Players Club on
Palmer Ranch, lia Tasho has
opened his own business in
Nokomis.
Located in the Park Isles
Plaza, Ilia's Restaurant, 625
North Tamiami Trail, opens

day through Sunday, serving
traditional Greek lunches and
dinners.

Greece, Ilia's dream is to emu-
late his family, who for more
than 100 years have been
connoisseurs in cooking and
making cheese and wine. His
grandfather even supplied
wine to the pope in Italy
before World War II.
Ilia, with his wife, Liliana,
and sons, offers a traditional


Greek menu, preparing all his
own meats, sauces, season-
ings, yogurts and deserts.
Eventually he plans to open a
larger restaurant and his own
bakery.
Ann's office is expanding
Professional legal assistant
Sheri Kerkering with 15
years experience, the past five
in San Diego has joined the
team of Ann Thompson,
Attorney at Law, 152 N.
Nokomis Ave. in Venice.
When her husband retired
recently from the military,
they returned to his Florida
birthplace. Kerkering speciil-
izes in probate and estate law
and joins legal assistant Linda
Knowlton, who has been with
the company for the past four
years.
A graduate of Franklin
Pierce Law Center in New
Hampshire, Thompson was a
partner in a Hampton, N.H.,
law firm before coming to
Venice and opening her own
office in 1995. Ten years later
she has four assistants.
They specialize in advising
and representing clients with
premarital and post-marital
agreements, divorce, alimo-
ny, pension and retirement
rights.
Envisioning her life in the
future as lawyering and boat-
ing, Thompson commented,
"I will always maintain a solo
practice, because what I do is
me in a special personal field
in an interpersonal way."
Rodriguez goes
international
The fame of Casey Key
developer Henry
Rodriguez, who is build-
ing Bay Street Village in
Osprey, is spreading
internationally : i. ,,
His vision for proper
growth management of infill
and development was recent-
ly highlighted by a national
trade magazine. This week he
has met with officials of the
government of the Bahamas
to discuss creating a similar
project on a 900-acre
Bahamian island.
Decisive vote required
Golfers continue to enjoy
the inexpensive facilities of
Venice East Golf Club, but for
how long?
This week 250 equity hold-
ing shareholders received
details of the special January
2006 meeting. when ballots
will be counted on the deci-
sion to sell, or not to sell the
course.
The highest offer received
from developers who have
shown interest in acquiring
the 18-hole, 53-acre course is
$10,675,000.
With the housing market
now showing signs of a
slowdown in sales, some
members have expressed
concern that if the maxi-
mum financial benefit is to
be achieved, positive action
will be required on this
major decision as soon as,
possible.
Whatever the decision,
golfers will continue to
enjoy the course facilities
for another 12 months.


JCR a leader in computer technology


STAFF REPORT

Ric Roggero, owner of JCR
Systems inVenice, has come a
long way from a hopeful, col-
lege-bound young man from
Brazil to the owner of his own
successful computer technol-
ogy company.
ICR Systems recently won
the Economic Development
Corporation's Excellence
Technology Company of the
Year award.
"My goal has always been
the best interest of the client,"
Roggero said. "I didn't realize
how big this award was. I'm
very proud. I was nominated
because my clients called.
That made it even more spe-
cial.".
Roggero's journey started
one day on his college cam-
pus in England.
"One day as a true draw to


were my clients," he said.
After 10 years at the job,
Riggero left in search of
something bigger.
In 1983, he began consult-
ing work and in 1986, he
opened JCR Systems.
Cut-and-dried
"When I came here I
decided to go full time doing
what I love to do," Roggero
said. "I noticed that all the
work in Venice was coming
from Sarasota."
Roggero wanted to change
that. So, he opened his office
on the island inVenice.
"That was my goal, to start
with Venice and see how
things progressed," he said.
For Roggero, things have
progressed very well. When
he started his company in
1986, he was the sole employ-
ee. Today, Roggero has a staff


computers. They are also
going to have the same inter-
active screen, the Smart
Board, as the other libraries,"
Roggero said.
Roggero is extremely
proud of two of his newest
products: E-filing and the
wireless tablet.
E-filing is a'strictly com-
puter way to file documents,
no cabinet required.
"Every one of our attorneys
is doing that," he said. "They
can look up the name of a
client and they get all the doc-
uments."
Roggero's new wireless
tablet has also been a big hit.
Instead of a clipboard, doc-
tors can carry around this
tablet.
They can take notes, view
x-rays and do a number of
other tasks that would require
printing and extra time.

access a client's computer from his office.


luck ... I met a girl that was
touring Oxford," he said.
After returning home to
the United States, the girl told
her father about Roggero,
who then sent him informa-
tion about U.S. schools and
scholarships.
"The big deal was that life-
changing moment," Roggero
said.
Riggero applied to Ottawa
University in Kansas. Not only
was he accepted into the
school, but he found a schol-
arship for South American,
students that almost fully
paid for his tuition. At Ottawa,
Roggero majored in environ-
mental studies.
From Ottawa, Roggero
headed to the University of
Kansas for graduate school
and to receive his doctorate.
It was there that he got his
first post-college job. Roggero
worked in the University of
Kansas lab part-time.
"Once I began to work with
the computers, I absolutely
loved it," he said. "I worked in
this lab developing hardware.
I did parts of the program-
ming. We were always on the,
cutting edge of things."
Later, Roggero became the
network manager for several
departments.
"I had over 500 people that


of seven.
"We started with basic
servers," he said. "I came up
with a very simple, yet cut-
and-dried method. My niche
was to do business to busi-
ness; we don't push to sell to
homes. I try to look at what
businesses are trying to do
and make them more effi-
cient."
More efficient
Roggero has worked with
many businesses in Venice to
improve their computer tech-
nology.
He has recently worked
with Jacaranda, Venice and
North Port libraries to im-
prove their community tech-
nology.
Roggero is responsible for
Jacaranda Library's new
Internet system.
"We provide the technolo-
gy for wireless internet," he
said.
In the North Port Library,
he developed virtual CD
ROMs in the youth depart-
ment. This allows kids to use
programs that require a disk
to run, without requiring
them to actually handle the
disk.
Roggero is now working
with the Venice Library.
"They're connecting 11


A new project that Roggero
has in the works is a storm
preparation kit for comput-
ers.
Dedicated and connected
Roggero believes that he
received the EDC award not
only for his excellent service,
but for the dedication and
connection to each customer.
'A key point is how we treat
our clients," he said. "We
won't let the client down. It
was that human-touch quali-
ty." .
Roggero and his techni-
cians are dedicated to serv-
ing the needs of their clients.
According to Roggero, in
a technical emergency, they
will stay with the client until
the problem is fully
resolved.
"Even all night," he said.
Even though Roggero has
had much success, he still
has big plans for the future.
"My goal for five years
from now is to have 15 tech-
nicians, a lot ,more remote
work and a lot more wire-
less. We are trying to reduce
our time to fix simple prob-
lems," he said. I also want to
take better care of Venice. As
our clients have grown, their
needs have changed. We are
trying to grow with them."


Area taxpayers should update their information for refunds


STAFF REPORT

More than 90 taxpayers
who filed' their 2005 federal
tax returns from addresses in
the Sun newspapers circula-
tion area have not collected
their refunds. They are
among the more than 84,000
taxpayers nationwide whose
income tax refund checks
could not be delivered in
2005.
Checks totaling about $73
million can be reissued as
soon as taxpayers correct or
update their addresses with
the Internal Revenue Service.
In some cases, a taxpayer has


more than one check waiting,
the IRS said this week. The
average amount owed to each
taxpayer is $871.
In Florida, about $8.3 mil-
lion awaits 6,981 taxpayers
who simply need to correct or
update their addresses. The
state's average refund amount
is $1,194, the IRS said.
Michael L. Dobzinski, an
IRS media relations specialist
based in Plantation, Fla., sup-
plied a list of area taxpayers
entitled to unclaimed
refunds. There are 42 such
taxpayers in Sarasota County
(14 in Englewood, 12 in North
Port and 16 in Venice); 35 in


Charlotte County (18 in Port
Charlotte, 15 in Punta Gorda,
one in Placida and one in
Rotonda West); and 13 in
DeSoto County.
"Our goal is to get this
money back in the hands of
the people it belongs to," IRS
Commissioner Mark W.
Everson said in a press
release. "Visiting IRS.gov
makes it easy for taxpayers to
see if they've missed a
refund."
Find your refund
The "Where's My Rfunmd?"
feature on the IRS.gov Web
site provides taxpayers ,with


information about their
refunds. It is available from
the home page. To use it, tax-
payers enter their Social
Security number, filing status
(such assingle or married fil-
ing jointly) and the refund
amount shown on their 2004
tax return.
When the information is
submitted, "Where's My
Refund?" will show the status
of a refund and, in some
cases, provide instructions to
resolve potential account
issues.
In the case of Gulf Coast
residents affected by
Hurricane Katrina, the IRS


will expedite research into the
status of undelivered pay-
ments and issue a refund
check when the original is
outstanding. The IRS advises
hurricane victims who had
been expecting a refund
check but did not receive one
to contact the IRS on the spe-
cial toll-free Katrina disaster
line at (866) 562-5227.
Generally, the IRS said,
refund checks can go astray
for a variety of reasons. When
a taxpayer moves or changes
address and fails to notify the
IRS or the U.S. Postal Service,
a check sent to the taxpayer's
last known address is


returned to the IRS.
Taxpayers who have
moved since filing their last
tax return can ensure the IRS
has,their correct address by
filing Form 8822, Change of
Address, with the IRS. You can
download the form from
IRS.gov or request it by calling
(800) TAX-FORM (829-3676).
Those who do not have
access to the Internet and
think they may be missing a
refund should first check
their records or contact their
tax preparer, then call the IRS
toll-free assistance line at
(800) 829-1040 to update
their address.

Radio broadcaster
promises a new ball
game at the Trop in
stop at Venice Kiwanis
Club.

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

The Tampa Bay Devil Rays
have struggled to find their
own identity through their
first eight years of existence.
Factors unique to the area
weigh both for and against
them.
The biggest on the nega-
tive side is the fact that most
folks living in these parts
come from somewhere else.
Fans' allegiance to teams
from their native towns run
deep. Winning them over can
be an exhaustive task.
With ambitious new own-
ership and management in
place, the Devil Rays are out
to accomplish just that in
2006.
The new theme is titled
"Under Construction." It
encompasses a new principal
owner in Stuart Sternberg,
who has vowed to spend
time, money and energy to
turn around the Rays' sagging
image.
There's also a new manag-
er in Joe Maddon, hopefully a
more polished product on the
field and amenities for fans
such as free parking, lower
ticket prices and the freedom
to bring in your own food, to
name a few.
Rich Herrera of the Devil
Rays radio broadcast team
addressed some of the orga-
nization's plans to make
Tropicana Field more fan
friendly as the guest speaker
at the Venice Kiwanis Club's


Wednesday meeting at
Buffalo Bill's restaurant.
This will be Herrera's sec-
ond season with the D Rays.
He does post-game inter-
views for the team's radio net-
work and heads up the
broadcasting office.
He has been impressed
with the effort to turn things
around.
"Stu wants to reconnect
with everybody," Herrera
said. "He wants to pay atten-
tion to what the fans want."
One of his main objectives
for Herrera during the offsea-
son isto find more radio out-
lets so fans can tune in to the
games in their home, car or
workplace.
'"We desperately want' a .
radio station down here,"
Herrera said. "This is not the
boondocks as far as we're
concerned."
Herrera had visits planned
to WENG in Englewood and
WKII in Punta Gorda for later
in the day.
More airwave play is only a
part of it.
"We want to reach out and
be a part of the community,"
said Herrera, who previously
worked "with the San
Francisco Giants,, and
Oakland A's before coming to
the St. Pete/Tampa area.
"We'll work with groups. We
want fans in the. ballpark. If
you're a Yankee fan, we invite
you to come to Tropicana
Stadium to root against the
Red Sox. If you're a fan of the
Red Sox, come root against
the Yankees."
Once in the park and bit-
ten by the bug, Sternberg and
the new management are
banking folks will eventually
break old ties and become
Devil Ray fans.
The team showed flashes

of becoming an up-and-com-
ing contender in 2005. There
are lots of talented youngsters
like Jonny Gomes, Jorge
Cantu, Damon Hollins, Carl
Crawford, Rocco Baldelli and
Scott Kazmir. A few more
pieces of the puzzle are need-

ly make some noise in the
American League East.
The Rays were last in the
standings and attendance in
2005.
"The payroll will go up, but
they want to spend money
wisly"" Herrera noted. '

Venice cruises past Southeast i


STAFF REPORT


The Venice High girls soccer team prepped for
Friday night's big home match against Lakewood
Ranch with a 4-0 victory, over Southeast Monday
night.
The Lady Indians, coached by Joe Ferretti, Carol
Delehanty and Toan Nguyen, improved their over-
all record to 8-2 and their district mark to 5-2.
Combining on the shutout were Meghann Dunn,
who was in goal the first half, and Diana Lambrecht,
who minded the net in the second half. Neither
Venice keeper saw much action as the Lady Indians
dominated play.
The scoring started early when Kristen Johnson
received a pass near the right touchline, dribbled
around a defender and blasted the ball past the


keeper.
SFive minutes later, a
Southeast player
received a yellow caution
card. All the while, Venice
continued to pummel
the Lady Seminoles with
shots.
Then at 15 minutes, "
Johnson set up Amber
Clark about three-yards
away from the goal line,
making it 2-0.
The Venice pressure
continued. Late in the Joe Ferretti
half, Venice scored again.

Midwestern hospitality at its best


Outstanding in Tae Kwon Do


I recently returned from
'the heartland of this great
nation of ours. A place called
Kearney (pronounced car
knee), Nebraska.
I was there for the NCAA
Division II volleyball Elite 8
.tournament to determine a
national champion.
This was not the easiest
'place in the world to get to,
:and as I was making my way
'across the "frozen tundra" of
:the Midwest, I was wondering
why the NCAA would choose
;such a God-forsaken place to
:hold its National
:Championship tournament.
: First off, you must fly into
'either Lincoln or Omaha, nei-
*ther of which qualify as a
metropolis. Then the fun real-
ly begins, for one must drive
:between 150-200 miles to the
:campus of the University of
'Nebraska at Kearney. It's not
:really all that bad except that
at this time of year up there,
.:this funny white stuff falls
;from the sky.
: Not only that, but because
,it's so &%!*#$@ cold, the
funny, white stuff stays lying
all over the ground.
Then, as if that isn't
;enough, what we would call
"'tropical force winds" blow
that funny white stuff all over
ihe place.
I arrived in Omaha on
Thursday morning at 1 a.m..
;The temperature was a solid 8
degrees and the funny white
:stuff was blowing all over the
,place. The pilot commented
'that it was the first time he'd
"'driven a plane sideways."
Braving the elements, I
was on the road by 6 a.m. to
make my 200-mile trek to
Kearney. After a rough start,
the skies cleared, the roads
cleared and the sun shone on
me the rest of the way.
Arriving at about 10 a.m., I
had some time to kill before
the festivities began at noon. I
took a walk around the cam-
pus, which is the focal point
pf this small town. There is no
mistaking that you are in farm

country and the sweet smell
of the farm permeates the air.
I came upon a newspaper
machine and splashed on the
front page of the Kearney
Hub was the news about the
Elite 8. Not only that, but it
was the lead news story on
the local TV affiliate. Not the
lead sports story, the lead
news story. You see the host
UNK Lopers are the No. 1
ranked team in the country
and when "only" 1,200 people
show up for their home
games, it's a small crowd.
Wearing my University of
Tampa Spartan hat every-
where I went, I was easily
identifiable as "here for the
Elite 8." And what a reception
I received. The warmth and
friendliness of these country
folk was as if they'd been lifted
out of a Norman Rockwell
painting. Gracious hosts, they
are also volleyball fanatics
and they love their Lopers.
The first day of the tourna-
ment featured four games
with the host team playing at
7 p.m. Tampa won its 2:30
contest and our contingency
returned for the 7 o'clock
game between Truman State
and UNK. I watched in
amazement as the gym filled
to near capacity. There were
about 4,500 people there and
the most surprising thing was
that about 25% were stu-
dents. There were grandmas
and grandpas. There were lit-


tie kids with faces painted
blue and wearing antlers to
support their Lopers. The
school chancellor is a local
celebrity, shaking hands as he
made his way toward his seat ..
near center court. The pre-
ceding game ended and in -
about a nano second the gym
was filled with the resounding .
chant of "Let's go Lopers.
Tampa lost in the semifinal
round and I was not there to .
see the championship match ,. ..
in which GrandValley State of ....
Michigan upset the Lopers to ..
win the title and end UNK's
66-match home win streak.
However the three nights of .
the tournament saw record
setting crowds culminating in
5,025 for the finals.
When I arrived home, I V Z
spoke with Venice High vol- -
leyball coach Brian Wheatley
and told him of my adven- "
tures and urged him to pass it /
on to his girls.

ball, I'm not sure you could

Within seconds, the fiery
glow in the second-story win-
dow turned from a brilliant
orange to a dull white. Then
nothing, only smoke.
Battling a single-room fire
that previously would have
taken firefighters more than a
minute took them mere sec-
onds Wednesday thanks to
the Englewood Fire
Department's new foam fire-
extinguishing equipment.
"Fire fighting used to be
more exciting," said Assistant
Fire Chief Kirk Gaskell. "This
is safe."
Firefighters tested their
new engine and compressed-
air foam system by burning
the main residence on the
Bass property, a nearly 7-acre
historic Englewood site on
New Point Comfort Road.
Waterford Companies,
which is planning to build 21
townhouses on the property,
asked the fire department if it
wanted to bum the run-down'
house as practice with its new
foam system.
The deparunent agreed.
"They didn't even think
about it," said Terry Redman
ofWaterford.
The foam system, the only
one of its kind in Southwest
Florida, allows firefighters' to
attack a blaze with a foam-
water mixture. The bubbly
foam, Gaskell said, adds extra
surface area to the water,
helping firefighters extinguish
a fire quicker and with less
water and heat damage to the
building.
The department currently
has only one new engine
equipped with the system,
but is expecting two more
,within a month.-
Each engine outfitted with'
the compressed-air foam sys-
tem costs $287,000, said
Training Capt. Scott Lane, for-
merly chief of the Nokomis
Volunteer Fire Department.
"This is going to put us on
the cutting edge," Lane said.
Firefighter Chris Davis,
who was one of the first to


practice with the equipment,
said the foam mixture
decreased the room's temper-
ature from nearly 700 degrees
to less than 100 degrees in
about 30 seconds.
Plus, Davis said, the foam
reduces the amount of steam,
which can often burn fire-
fighters.
"I'm definitely excited to
work with it," Davis said.

One to go
The Bass house was built
in 1928 and served as the
main residence of the Bass
family. John Foster Bass Jr.
began the Bass Biological
Laboratory and Zoological
Research Supply Co. in 1931
on the property.
The company laid the
groundwork for the Cape
Haze Marine Laboratory,
which- moved to Sarasota in
1960 and served as the pre-
cursor to Mote Marine
Laboratory.
"The Bass Laboratory pre-
ceded all university marine
stations in Florida," said
Mote's senior biologist Ernest
Estevez in a 1989 report.
The report also. states that
scientists traveled from all
over the world to collect,
identify and dissect speci-
mens at the Bass lab.
Lane said it took the fire
department more than a
month of planning to bum
the building.
Backup units, including
one from Nokomis, watched
the burn, while members of
the Red Cross, Division of
Forestry and Englewood
Water District stopped by.
Firefighters used' bales of
hay and wooden pallets to
light and extinguish fires one
at a time in the house. Lane
said firefighters would prac-
tice extinguishing about 20
fires and then torch the entire
house today in a larger blaze.
A second building on the
property will also be burned.
"It will be down to the
ground," he said.

John Bass IV his wife and
sister sat around the old fam-
ily fireplace one last time
Tuesday night.
With a drink in hand and a
pine log burning in front of
them, the three shared mem-
ories memories of growing
up and of the house they
would no longer visit.
"It was a way of saying
'good-bye,' Bass said
Wednesday. "It's sad."
Firefighters on Wednesday
began burning the large, sin-
gle-story family house, which
was built in 1928.
Waterford Companies of
Venice bought the nearly 7-'
acre property in February for
some $4 million. The compa-
ny plans to build 21 single-
family homes on the lot, situ-
ated off New Point Comfort
Road.
Demolition of the home
started Wednesday morning
when the Englewood Fire
Department, testing out its
new compressed-air foam
system, burned the house
room by room.
"It was hard to watch," said
Bass, 53, who took more than
150 photographs' of the fire.
"There are a lot of memories
here."
Bass lived in the house for
some 43 years before selling
the property in 2000 to Triple
Diamond Inc. He grew up
there with his younger broth-
er and sister, Mark and Amy,
digging tunnels through pal-
metto bushes with neighbor-
hood kids and throwing
oranges at passing cars, he
said.

Its history
The sprawling property,
home to a handful of other


seedy buildings, once housed
the Bass Biological Labora-
tory and Zoological Research
Supply Co. The laboratory,
built in 1931 by Bass' father,
was the first full-time marine
station on the Florida main-
land.
According to a report on
the property's history, the lab
helped identify 470 marine
and terrestrial animals. It also
served as the precursor to
Sarasota's Mote Marine
Laboratory.
Bass said he remembers
scientists frequently visiting
the lab, and he and his friends
collecting specimens such as
octopus, snails, pelicans and
"whatever they needed" in
the gulf and Lemon Bay.
It's the property's history
and picturesque views of
Gottfried Creek that make
Bass believe there's a better
use for the land than simply a
housing development.
Bass said he wished
Charlotte County officials
had bought the property for a
waterfront park. He said part
of the property could have
been used for a police or fire-
fighter training station, a
playground or simply a place
to sit and relax.
"OK, the house is gone, but
lets not waste it all," Bass said. "I
bet if this was sitting in Sarasota
County, it would have been
bought"
Sarasota County has a vigor-
ous program that buys environ-
mentally significant land.
But Bass is not giving up.
Bass said he's urging county offi-
cials to buy the historic site and
plans to write state or federal
officials seeking their help.
"I think Waterford would
work with it," he said. "This is
just not a good situation."

morning smorgasbord at Oscar Scherer


Pigeons waiting to be judged.


Getting ready to go are John MacNutt of Sarasota and Aimee Escalante from California.


BY FRAN PALMERI
SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUN


It's 8:30 Sunday morning.
While the rest of the world is
sleeping in, hikers, racers and
pigeons hundred of
pigeons are assembling at
Oscar Scherer State Park.
Laurel Schiller, president
of the Friends of Oscar
Scherer, is getting started on
the scrub walk she leads
each Sunday morning on
one of six different trails in
the park. A biologist by
training, she can identify
just about any plant in the
park.
At Lake Osprey, a group is
gearing up for. the "Dirty
Triathlon": two rounds of


swimming (100 yards), biking
(3 miles) and running (11/2
miles). Steve Noble of Port
Charlotte will be today's win-
ner a few hours later.
In the Nature Center, 250
well-bred, perfectly groomed
pigeons have come from
miles around for the "Young
Bird Show" sponsored by the
Florida Gulfcoast Pigeon
Club. Riding to and from the
park in comfort with their
owners, and not at all like
their rough and ready cousins
who hang around city parks,
these birds are gorgeously
colored and come in many
shapes, sizes and a variety of
breeds, such as Oriental Frill,
Helmut and Gaditano,.
These are show birds, bred


to a standard and judged
meticulously in terms of
color, feathers and other
characteristics.
Steve Pettito of Sarasota,
who is president of the club,
started raising pigeons at the
age of seven while growing up
in Brooklyn.
Kids are here, too. Like
Steve, they are getting into
this hobby at an early age.

Oscar Scherer, call the park at

He was at




The Bulge


STORY BY DON MOORE* SENIOR WRITER

fc. Floyd Gantzer was in the
17th Airborne Division.


Trained as a paratrooper at
Fort Benning, Ga., in July
1944, former Pfc. Floyd
Gantzer was attached to the
193rd Glider Infantry Regi-
ment, part of the 17th Air-
borne Division at the Battle
of the Bulge in Belgium in
January 1945 during World
War II.
"We were trucked to the
battle," the 84-year-old Port
Charlotte man said. "During
the attack on Mande St.
Etienne, Belgium, on Jan 7 I
was assigned to an anti-tank
unit with a British six pound
gun. It was a real bad day -
cold and snowy. I was out
front of the gun in a foxhole
when my unit pulled out in a
hurry and left me there.
"I was out there for almost
two days by myself, me and
the Germans. I stayed in my
trench until dark. When dark
came I was happy because I
could begin crawling back to


on the ground until I finally
made it back to the road and
got back to Mande St.
Etienne."
The 17thAirborne Division
held an 82-mile front from
Grvet to, Verdun, France, in
the Ardennes Campaign.
The German army's attack
stopped four miles short of
the Meuse River because their
tanks ran out of fuel. The 17th
Division was the last Amer-
ican division between the
Ardennes and the North Sea.
By the time Gantzer and
his anti-tank gun reached the
Rhine River they joined the
194th Glider Infantry.
"We had the members of
the gun crew and our six-
pounder in one of the gliders
that crossed the Rhine. We
landed in a field in Germany
and our left wing hit the
ground first. The glider's
wings were ripped off, but
neither our gun nor the crew

unit was living in in Berlin.


my lines, The Germans were
all over shooting at me in the
dark. I stayed low and crawled


members were hurt," he said.
"The Germans were every-
,where. Everybody was going


here and there and every-
thing was so confusing. We
finally got our gun crew
together and started firing."
It was the beginning of a
long string of advances
through one German village
after another as the war went
on and on.
"Most of the time snipers
were our biggest problem as
we went from village to vil-
lage," he said. "In one town
there was a sniper hold up in
a house shooting at us. I
reached the house and was
just about to throw a hand
grenade into the house when
a German family with a
bunch of little kids walked out
the front door with their
hands raised. The sniper had,
let them out. A short time
later the sniper surrendered,
too. He was an 18- to 20-year-
old German soldier.
"If I had thrown that hand
grenade into the house it
would have killed 'em all!"
Deeper and deeper into
Germany Gantzer and his
anti-tank gun crew went as
the war ground on and on. At
one point outside a German
village, he can't remember the
name of, they were faced-to-
face with three Panzer IV
tanks. They were no match.
"Three big German tanks ,
came up over the top of this
hill one day while we were
trying to take this town. They
just sat there and laid into
us firing round after round,
We could do nothing about
it with the gun we had," he
said.
"We all dug in in a hurry
and were trying to stay as
close to the ground as we
could. I was scared. Anybody
that's been in combat and
tells you they weren't scared,
that's a lot of bull.
'After a while the three
tanks pulled back. My outfit
with our gun got the hell out
of there in a hurry," Gantzer
recalled.
At one point he and the
gun crew entered a German
town and nearby was a con-
centration camp with 400 to
500 emaciated prisoners.
"They were Polish people
and they were being starved
by the Germans." he said.
"They were so glad we arrived
with food."
By the time Gantzer
reached Berlin his anti-tank
gun was attached to the 325th
Glider Infantry Regiment. He
had acquired a dachshund.

Daughter-in-law gets


his WW II medals


After six decades Floyd Gantzer of Port Charlotte finally receives the medals he was awarded
during World War II from U.S. Rep. Mark Foley, (R-Palm Beach) in the foreground. In the back-
ground from the left are Gantzer's daughter-in-law, Martha Gantzer-Kueter who worked for

This is part of the 325 Glider Infantry Regiment in Berlin. Floyd is right up front with his
dachshund, Mike, in uniform sitting on his knees.


Like lots of other soldiers
who fought in World War II,
Pfc. Floyd Gantzer never
received his medals. It's both-
ered him for years.
When hiis daughter-in-law,
Martha Gantzer-Kueter, who
lives in Iowa, learned Floyd
thought it was high Lime he
received the military medals
from a war he fought in 60
years ago she decided to try
and do something about it.
"I got his discharge papers
and filled out the necessary
paperwork and sent it in a
couple of years ago and never
heard a thing," she said.
"Then I got in touch with U.S.
Sen. Tom Harkin (R-Iowa)


and talked to' him about my
frustration with trying to get
'dad's' medals from the feder-
al government.
"His office went to work
right a way and got the
medals for us. Sen. Hlarkin
wanted to present them to
'dad' personally, but he was-
n't well enough to come to,
Iowa. So Harkin got in touch
with U.S. Rep. Mark Foley
(R-Palm Beach who also rep-
resents part of Charlotte
County) and had him present
the medals in his stead."
At a little ceremony in
the Port Charlotte Cultural
Center recently former Pfc.
Floyd Gantzer, 17th Airborne


Infantry Division and 82nd
Airborne Infantry Division
was presented with his
Combat Infantryman's Badge,
Bronze Star, American Cam-
paign Ribbon, European-
African-Middle Eastern Cam-
paign Medal and Bronze Star
Attachment (Triple) and
Arrowhead, World War II
Victory Medal, Glider Badge
and Good Conduct Medal.
"It was a collaborative ef-
fort on the part of Sen. Harkin
and Rep. Foley which was
really nice on their part,"
Martha said. "I'm so glad 'dad'
got his World War II medals
while he was still alive. They
mean so much to him."

Acupuncture to Reflexology.
Increasingly growing in
popularity is therapeutic
magnets. Relief from discom-

drugs, and no surgery has
made magnets for the masses
irresistible.
The basic premise behind
using magnets is that we are
energy beings. There are
atoms and electrons running
throughout our bodies creat-
ing an energy field. Each cell
in our body has a positive and
negative charge like a battery.
By stimulating the magnetic
field the body naturally re-
pairs itself. Physicians in an-'
cient Egypt, India, and China
described and practiced the
use of magnets and it is men-
tioned in the writings of
Homer, Plato and Aristotle.
No need to pull the mag-
nets off your refrigerator to
get started. The Japanese
have made magnets for ther-
apeutic use into an art.

Syndrome."
The earth's magnetic field
is known to have decreased
about 6 percent since 1830,
and indirect evidence sug-
gests that it may have
decreased as much as 30 per-
cent over the last millennium.
He argues that magnets sim-
ply provide some of the mag-
netic field that the earth has
lost.
Magnets have also spilled
over into the world of sports.
NFL teams in Denver, Cincin-
nati and Miami use magnets
as part of their health regi-
ment.
Bill Romanowski, former
pro football linebacker, cred-
its magnet therapy with get-
ting him off pain killers and
anti-inflammatories follow-
ing knee surgery. He also
credits magnets with helping
him turn in one of his greatest
performances at the 1998
Super bowl.
Jack Scott, PhD, adviser to
the U.S. Track and Field team
for the past four Olympic
Games has used magnets for
several years and has
observed how they reduce
lower back pain.
"The relief from pain asso-
ciated with conditions such
as chronic lower back pain,
tendonitis, hamstring pulls,
jumper's knee and muscular


inflammation has made me a
great believer" says Scott.
Magnets can be used for
just about any ailment in the
body.
In a study published in the
American Journal of Pain
Management in 1999, mag-
netic foot insoles were shown
to be effective in reducing
foot pain in those with dia-
betes. In research conducted
at New York Medical College
of Valhalla, magnetic foot
pads were found to be effec-
tive in relieving numbness,
tingling and pain associated
with this diabetes-related
problem.
Evidence suggests that
roughly 80% of chronic pain
sufferers could benefit form
magnetic therapy. When held
against the skin, magnets
relax capillary walls, thereby
boosting blood flow to the
painful area. They also help
prevent the muscle spasms
that underlie many forms of
pain-by interfering with mus-
cle contractions. Another
major use of magnets has
been to reduce stress. Mag-
nets used at night, increase
melatonin levels which have
a calming effect on the body,
reducing stress and facilitat-
ing relaxation.
Magnetism is necessary for
healthy living, but it is being
reduced naturally, as well as
through pollution, so mag-
netic therapy is a great way to
bolster our magnetic charge.

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 resorptipn,
of the bone support them. When all the teeth are lost, the bone that
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
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
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.

SOUTH IEWS


'Good' news about


thepost office


ELLEN HILLSTROM
COLUMNIST

I really do have a lot of faith
in the postal service.
Last fall we learned the
good news that the South
Venice Post Office will be built
at Jacaranda and U.S. 41 in
the near future. The South
Venice Civic Association has
lobbied our federal legislators
for more than seven years
both directly and through our
community plan. We keep
going to the site hoping for
the bulldozers to show up.
We recently received two
pieces of "good" news.
On Nov. 17, we received a
letter from U.S. Sen. Bill
Nelson addressed to our
SVCA -president, stating:
"Thank you for contacting my
office regarding the construc-
tion of the South Venice Post
Office. I appreciate being
made aware of your concerns
and will be pleased to look
into this matter.
"Currently, I am in touch
with the U.S. Postal Service
on your behalf. As soon as I
have a response,. will share
the results with you. Again,
thank you. for contacting my
office. I want you to know that
as your U.S. Senator from
Florida, I welcome the oppor-
tunity to, serve you. If.1 ca,
assist you with any other mat-
ter, please do not hesitate to
let me know."
On Nov. 30, U.S. Rep.
Katharine Harris wrote to
county commissioner Shan-
non Staub: "Rep. Harris's
office was very responsive to
the (Sarasota County) board's
request and is working with
the U.S. Post Office on this


issue. But to date, they have
not received an official
response back. Both senators'
offices expressed interest in
helping and have taken
action by placing phone calls.
No word yet on what the out-
come is. We will keep you
abreast of any develop-
ments."
Does that sound like there
has been specific progress on
this issue? From my point of
view, both communications
are motivated by the fact they
are both running for office
next year.
Now we probably won't get
anything done before the 2006
elections so the issue can be
another platform in their quest
for office!
This week, the SVCAreceived
a four-page document from the
United States Postal Service
called a Gallup Poll Customer
Satisfaction Survey with a total
'of 34 questions on its service to
our association.
Under bulk rate/discounted
services, they ask us to rate the
timely delivery of our commu-
nity newsletter. Without an effi-
cient outlet inVenice, I drive our
newsletters to Tallevast every
month in hopes of speeding up
delivery. It still takes about 10
days.
If we had a full-service facility
in Venice, especially South
Venice, this problem would be
cured. You don't have to guess
what my additional comments
were under question no. 34.
Get your Christmas cards
and gifts mailed early. Today,
may even be too late.

South Venice Civic
Association development

Smm i-- ceL n at a


Local gymnast heading to Las Vegas


BY ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

Dressed in a silver, red and
blue lebtard with "USA"'
emblazoned across the chest,
'Whitney Brown takes a break
from her warm-up exercises,
but not for long.
"My goal is to go the
Olympic Games," said the
bubbly 9-year-old North
Porter.
The first step toward mak-
ing her dream a reality is a trip
to Las Vegas.
Along with her parents,
Robert and Gina Brown, and
coach, Kathy Stuenkel, she
will board a plane for Nevada
to participate in the USA
Gymnastic Trampoline &
Tumbling JumpStart Testing/
SuperClinic program.
By attending the program,
Whitney will have the oppor-
tunity to try out for a spot on
the JumpStart National Team.
The JunmpStart SuperClinic
falls under the umbrella of
the USA Gymnastics Pro-
gram, the governing body of
the sport. JumpStart identi-
fies talented tumblers and
trampolinists ages 7 to 1.2
who excel in strength and
flexibility. .


In the two sections of the
JumpStart program, boys and
girls compete against each
other for 21 spots on the
national team. They also train
with coaches and former
Olympians.
"It's basically a program to
identify young athletes who
have the aptitude to move
into international competi-
tion," said Robert. "Whitney
has the best attitude about it.
She really loves gymnastics."
The Browns, are former
competitive dance instruc-
tors and judges, who used to
own their own studio, and
recognized their daughter's
ability early onri.
"She'd spend hours watch-
ing us with the competitive
dancers we'd give lessons to,",
Robert recalled. "At 3, she
would have their entire rou-
tine memorized. It gave her a
foundation."
Fantastic'four
Whitney is an artistic gym-
nast, having competed in
floor exercises and on bal-
ance beam, parallel bars and
vault for the past three years.
She qualified in Jump-
Start's tumbling category by
performing well in evalua-
tions of her flexibility,


strength, speed and overall
fitness.
Whitney is one of only four
in the state to qualify for the
JumpStart program.
She will join about 100
young athletes from around
the country at the SuperClinic
in Las Vegas.
"The people at the gym
saw she had the potential
with tumbling;" said Gina
Brown. "It's a really great
opportunity. She'll have the
ability to go to different clin-
ics and training, and will be
working with national coach-
es."
The staff at Horizon Gym-
nastics Academy are honored
that one of their own was
chosen.
"It's our first time taking
someone (to the SuperClinic)
and having them qualify,"
said Kathy Stuenkel, Whit-
ney's coach. "It would be
wonderful if she made the
team, but I'm just excited
she's able to go. People with
vast amounts of knowledge
come to train with the kids."
If Whitney doesn't qualify
for the JumpStart team this
year, she can test again next
year.
She will be eligible to com-


pete for the JumpStart team
up to the age of 12.
"She knows it's an honor.
Shes competitive, but she's
competitive within herself,"
Gina said. "She just lights up
when she talks about gym-
nastics."
Whitney, who says the
challenges are her favorite
part of the sport, is more
excited than nervous about
her trip. She is thrilled to be
one of the four people chosen
from Florida to attend the
SuperClinic.
Still, she has her sights set
on her goal.
"We'll be watching gym-
nastics on TV and my dad will
say, 'one day that will be you,'
"Whitney said. "I said, 'It will
be, it will just be a while.' "
In the meantime, the
Browns continue to encour-
age their daughter's dream.
"We've seen the whole
gamut, from the supportive
(parent) to the stage parent,"
Rob said. "She really loves
gymnastics, but if Whitney
said she wanted to quit
tomorrow, we'd support her."

Greetings


RABBI BARBARA AIELLO
RELIGION COLUMNIST


It's a beautiful, magical
time of the year. A happy
time. A family time. But for
many children whose parents
are divorced, the holiday sea-
son is at best, difficult and at
worst, traumatic.
I've been there and I know.
When my daughter was four
years old, my husband and I
divorced. We were no differ-
ent from so many in similar
situations. Therewas sadness,
change and legal wrangling,-
exacerbated by the holiday


season.
In my other life, before I
became a rabbi, I was a board
member for The Center for
Children of Divorce. Later, as
a clergy person, I became a
support group leader and
counselor to families and
children who suffer through
all the issues surrounding the
breakup of a marriage. I've
seen a lot. But there is nothing
like holidays to create havoc
and stress for children of di-
vorce.
Acknowledging that the
holiday season can be a par-
ticularly stressful time of the
year for divorced kids, what
can we parents do to ensure
that "happy holidays" is more
than just a song on the radio?
I asked my daughter, Ros-
anna, who, at 27 years of age,
still had fresh memories of
the things her father and I did
right as well as the things we
did wrong. Here are some of
her suggestions.
1. Don't fight about sched-
ules. Be flexible. Remember
that what is drafted in a legal


document often doesn't rep-
resent real situations, espe-
cially as children grow. Ros-
anna suggests both parents
discuss a holiday schedule
and include older children
(nine and up) in the decision-
making. But, Rosie points out,
never make your child feel
guilty about the choices she
makes. "Staying an extra day
with you or Daddy didn't
mean I loved one of you more
than the other. It just meant
that's what was easiest for me.
I needed you both to respect
my opinions." Rosanna says
parents can really Wreck a
holiday by putting the "legal"
schedule ahead of what
makes sense for the child.
2. For the noncustodial
parent let your kids bring
friends over. That's one of the
best ways to be supportive.
Rosie says, "My best holidays
with my dad were when he let
my best girlfriend come
along." Kids make friends at
school and in their neighbor-

Holiday heartache helping


divorced kids get through










AIELLO from Page 6B


hoods, and holidays are great
times for friendships to devel-
op and deepen. It can be
lonely for a kid to go to Dad's
(or Mom's) and be the only
child among grown-ups.
Remember that inviting a
friend along doesn't detract
from the visit. Often it
enhances it.
3. Help your child select,
buy and wrap gifts for the
"other parent." Ouch! Really?
That's what Rosanna says.
"On this one you did well,
Mom. You took me out to buy
my dad birthday and Han-
ukkah gifts and made sure I
wrapped them nicely and
sent a card. Especially when I
was little, I was so happy that
I had my own present to take
to my dad."
4. Let your child relax. That
seems like a simple idea, but
once again, my child-of-di-
vorce emphasizes that this is
a big area that is often over
looked. Divorced kids spend a
lot of time going back and
forth between parents. It's tir-
ing. Most kids appreciate
spending the whole day of a
holiday at home. Rosanna
recalls how stressful it was to
get up early, run to Dad's,

then race home for the sec-
ond half of the day with Mom.
"One New Year's Day I spent
most of it in the car," she says.
"It was awful." Now I see that
although the lawyers recom-
mended it, counting holiday
hours and strictly dividing
them in half was not in my
child's best interest. As par-
ents we needed to communi-
cate. Rather than creating
happy memories, my ex and I
contributed to her stress and
upset.
5. When it comes to gifts,
don't compete and don't
comment. This was a sore
spot for my daughter, who,
years later still .remembers
the argument'she overheard
between her father and me
about who was going to pur-
chase her first bicycle. "What
should have been a wonder-
ful memory was wrecked by
you two fighting about my
present," Rosanna says. I ad-
mit it. I really goofed on this
one. Not only did I resist my
ex-husband's offer that we
purchase it together but I
made snide comments about
how tight money was for us
and not for him. The result?
To this day my daughter's

Basket sale, supper
The Knights of Columbus
Ladies Auxiliary holds a bas-


memory of her favorite
Hanukkah gift is tainted by
my self-centered "Victim
Queen" behavior.
On other occasions I made
negative comments about
gifts Rosie received from her
father and his friends. I'm
ashamed to say that one year
my daughter hid these pre-
sents rather than risk my
remarks. That should never
happen.
6. "Never badmouth the
other parent," Rosanna says.
"No matter how you feel, be a
grown-up and remember
that your first duty is to be a
good parent." Good parents
don't say nasty things about
each other. Ever. My own
daughter, as well as the many
other children with whom
I've worked, report that this is
the one area where the most
harm is most consistently
done. "When my mom said
my dad was bad," one child
recalls, "then I felt like half of
me was bad. And when my
dad said the same thing
about my mom, then I felt
like all of me was bad!"
Bad- mouthing each other
is the quickest, most effective
way to ruin your child's self

esteem, not only during the
holidays but throughout the
year. A child who is encour-
aged to hate a parent will end
up hating her/himself in the
process.
7. Holidays are family time.
Bite your tongue, swallow
your pride and do one thing
together as a family. I was sur-
prised to learn how impor-
tant this was for my daughter.
"When you came to my
school performance and you
both sat together was one of
the best holidays I ever had,"
Rosie says. "Usually I had to
run back and forth between
you and Daddy., But that year
you two did the work, instead
of making me do it. You sat
together and you greeted me
together. I'll never forget how
good that felt."
I had no idea that such a
little thing would mean so
much. And I must be honest
and say that I almost didn't do
it. Rosie's dad had his girl-
friend with him and I was
annoyed and jealous. I was
alone and he wasn't. The
temptation to sulk and stay
bitter was almost overwhelm-
ing. But a counselor told me
that a little effort would make

a big difference for my child. I
guess I never knew how
much.
Other kids say that a holi-
day meal or even a stop for ice
cream shared with mom and
dad are among their fondest
memories. And don't forget to
include step parents. If you
and/or your ex are remarried,
your child must now relate to
more adults who share the
parental role. When you
demonstrate your accep-
tance and respect, your chil-
dren will follow suit and not
feel torn or stressed relating
to them. Remember, if you
truly want what's best for your
child, then you want your ex
to be happy. An ex who is
happily remarried means
your children will be happy
when they are together with
their own mom or dad.
8. Grandparents are very
important. "You always let me
see my Nana," Rosie says.
"Even though she didn't like
you anymore, you didn't try to
punish her by keeping me
away from my grandma." You
may have divorced your
child's mother or father, but
.your children did not divorce
grandma and grandpa.

Research indicates that the
more contact children have
with loving members of their
extended families, the health-
ier human beings they
become. Because you're
angry or disappointed with
your ex, it may seem like a
good idea to punish your for-
mer spouse by restricting
your child's contact with your
ex's parents. Do that and you
hurt your own child as well.
So Happy Hanukkah,
Merry Christmas and Good
Kwaanza, to you and yours.
And if "yours" happens to
include ex-spouses, step par-
ents and blended families,
remember that holiday cele-
brations bring with them spe-
cial challenges. Rise to the
-occasion. Be more gracious,
open and loving than you
ever have been before. Your
children will thank you and
respect you for it. My daugh-
ter says so. Now I know.

Christmas tradition continues at Venice Little Theatre


Saturday, Dec. 10, at 10:30
a.m., Gary Monroe will ex-
plore Florida folk artists at
Selby Library's Geldbart
Auditorium, 1331 First St. in
Sarasota.
From sculptures in wood
and tin to paintings on gro-
cery bags and old pizza boxes,
folk art displays a raw emo-
tion and independent spirit
that typically disregards artis-
tic rules, training and tradi-
tions. Monroe, author of
"The Highwaymen," will pre-
sent slides that survey the
eclectic and exotic creations
of Florida folk artists, while
challenging assumptions
about art and aesthetics.
The program is free and
open to the public. No reser-
vations are necessary but
seating is limited. For more
information contact the
Sarasota County Call Center
at (941) 861-5000 and ask

p.m. holiday program of

ments. Donations will be

.Venice Little Theatre. is,
bringing 'back its delightful
version of Charles Dickens'
"A Christmas Carol" for the
sixth-year. The VLT's Theatre
for Young People production"
will run for five performance,
on Dec. 16, 17 and 18 at 1


p.m., and on Dec. 17 and 18
at 2 p.m. Tickets are $8 per
person for all seats. Call the
box office at 488-1115. The
VLT is at 140W. Tampa Ave.
The Box Office is open
from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Monday to Saturday and an
hour before each perfor-
mance. Tickets may be
charged by phone at 488-
1115 or online at www.
venicestage.com.
The production, commis-
sioned by Venice Little
Theatre in 1999, has original
music by E. Suzan Ott with
book and lyrics by Scott Keys.
For my money it is the best
version of this delightful work
I have seen and I have seen
several variations these past
several years. Eric Watters is
particularly wonderful as
Scrooge. Watters is back for
the fourth year and VLT's
artistic director Murray Chase
is back as the director for the
fifth year.
Brian Bradley of North Port
is performing the role of Tiny
Tim. Chase said there are sev-
eral returning cast members
in addition to Watters and
several family groups in the
cast, which numbers .42.
Becky Holahan is the choreo-
grapher with musical direc-
tion by Michelle Kasanofsky.
The classic tale of
. Ebenezer Scrooge is retold in
a musical format. As he is vis-
ited in turn on Christmas Eve
by each of three ghosts (Past,
Present and Future), mem-
bers of the audience revisit
his lonely childhood;his brief
period of happiness as a
young man and then his
increasing alienation from
the world. Told alongside his
story is that of Scrooge's
underpaid and underappre-
ciated employee, Bob
Cratchit, and, the close-knit
and loving Cratchit family. It
ends happily when Scrooge
sees the error of his ways and
young Tim recovers.
"A Christmas Carol" is co-
produced by Stephenson Eye

and she had five just born
babies. I got some powdered
milk and fed them with an eye
dropper," he said. "Two
of them lived. I gave one to
the mess sergeant in Berlin
and I kept the other one.
"I called him Mike. I
brought him home with me

Good Night and
Good Luck
"Good Night, And Good Luck"
takes place during the early days
of broadcast journalism in 1950's
America. It chronicles the real-life
conflict between television news-
man Edward R. Murrow and
Senator Joseph McCarthy and the
House Un-American Activities
Committee. With a desire'to report
the facts and enlighten the public,
Murrow, and his dedicated staff -
headed by his producer Fred
Friendly and Joe Wershba in the
CBS newsroom defy corporate
and sponsorship pressures to
examine the lies and scaremonger-
ing tactics perpetrated by
McCarthy during his communist
'witch-hunts.'A very public feud
develops when the senator
responds by accusing the anchor
of being a communist. In this cli-
mate of fear and reprisal, the CBS
-crew carries on and their tenacity
will prove historic and monumen-
tal.

The Squid and
the Whale
Noah Baumbach's new film is an
excruciatingly humane, often hilari-
ous portrait of a disintegrating
family in mid-1980s Brooklyn. Set
in the stately, yet off-kilter, neigh-
borhood of Park Slope, the film
tells the story of the Berkmans, a
quintessentially New York family
struggling to keep it together.
Family patriarch Bernard (Jeff
Daniels) is a published author and
writing teacher whose insecurity
over his own lack of recognition-
continues to plague him.
Meanwhile, his wife Joan (Laura
Linney) is grappling with her own
sense of unsettlement. Their sons,
who are caught in the crossfire,
express their confusion in different
ways: 16-year-old Walt (Jesse
Eisenberg) tries to pass off Pink
Floyd's "Hey You" as his own hit in
the school talent show, while his,
12-year-old brother Frank (Owen
Kline) begins to explore his bud-
ding sexuality. When Bernard and
Joan finally decide to separate, the
family must confront their unravel-
ing situation head on.

Syriana
A political thriller that unfolds
against the intrigue of the global
oil industry. From the players bro-
kering back-room deals in
Washington to the men toiling in
the oil fields of the Persian Gulf,


the film's multiple storylines
weave together to illuminate the,
human consequences of the
"i',rce pursuit of wealth and
power. As a career CIA operative
(George Clooney) begins to
uncover the disturbing truth
about the work he has devoted
his life to, an up-and-coming oil
broker (Matt Damon) faces an
unimaginable family tragedy and
finds redemption in his partner-
ship with an idealistic Gulf prince
(Alexander Siddig). A corporate
lawyer (Jeffrey Wright) faces a
moral dilemma as he finesses
the questionable merger of two
powerful U.S. oil companies,
while across the globe, a disen-
franchised Pakistani teenager
(Mazhar Munir) falls prey to the
recruiting efforts of a charismatic
cleric. Each plays their small part
in the vast and complex system
thatpowers the industry, unaware
of the explosive impact their lives
will have upon the world. 2hr 3

Ushpizin.
Moshe and Mali, a poor child-
less Orthodox couple, find them-
selves penniless on the eve of
the Jewish holiday of Sukkot. As
they both pray desperately to the
Lord to help them, the impossi-
ble happens. Their prayers are
heard and they receive an unex-
pected charitable donation.
However, a miracle doesn't come
without a test, as two escaped
convicts appear uninvited on the
couple's doorstep, friends from
Moshe's shady secular past.
Moshe and Mali believe it is
another sign and that God will
bless them with children if they
follow the religious custom of
receiving guests for the holy day.
The outrageous behavior of these
unholy messengers and the
havoc it brings to the Orthodox
community will put Moshe and
Mali's faith to the ultimate test.
