Miller: Does Venice want a parking garage-


The Waterford president wants city council to
give him some direction so he can decide if a
downtown area redevelopment project would be
worthwhile.


BY JJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Waterford Companies
president Mike Miller cele-
brated his 50th birthday
Tuesday afternoon by asking
Venice Citr Council what it
wants.
The local developer didn't
get an answer, so his redevel-
opment proposal for 3.5 acres
of island property next to
Historic Downtown Venice
remains just another idea.
And the answer Miller's


looking for is: How tall are you
willing to go for a parking
garage?
Both Miller and his attor-
ney, Jeff Boone, approached
city council during audience
participation to ask this ques-
don. Venice recently approv-
ed the new zoning district
called Commercial Mixed
Use, which was proposed by
Miller with the intention of
applying it to the land be-
tween U.S. 41 Business, Ven-
ice Avenue Bridge and the
Intracoastal Waterway.


But that new CMU District
only passed 4-3, and Miller is
wondering if he should even
bother proposing a project
using that type of zoning.
"Forget the CMU, those are
just words. We're beyond
that," Miller said after the
meeting. "The bottom line is,
what do you really want to see
there?"
Miller did not receive the
answer he was looking for.
However, council members
did indicate they are open to
having another workshop to
discuss Waterford's plans for
the area next to the two 105-
foot condominium towers -
with a third yet to be built.
Hijacked
What started out as audi-


ence participation turned
into what sounded like a
rezoning hearing, until coun-
cil member Rick Tacy ques-
tioned the appropriateness of
the discussion and whether
or not Miller was being given
special consideration.
"This is not where we're
supposed to do this, and
we've really allowed ourselves
to be hijacked in this," Tacy
said.
Granted enough height,
council will see an answer to
its downtown parking prob-
lem a two-story parking
garage hidden behind the
new development along
Venice and Tampa avenues.
Miller has proposed keeping
the 180 parking spots on the
first floor reserved for public


use, and use the 180 second-
floor spots for the condo-
hotel and employee parking.
In order to cover the cost of
that, Miller wants to step
down the heights from seven
stories to four stories and
include a 140-room condo-
hotel, retail shops, a day spa,
public boat dock, pocket
parks and some residential
housing. This urban activity
center is what a CMU District
is meant to create.
Dropping the project to
less, than four and five stories
would eliminate the parking
garage because of cost.
Scaling back the project to
height restrictions of only
three and four stories would

An aerial view of some of the property Henry Rodriguez hopes will become Sorrento


Village, off State Road 681.

BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS! COLUMNIST

With the adoption of the
arterial road access manage-
ment plan for State Road 681
by Sarasota County com-
missioners Wednesday, the
new billion-dollar Sorrento
Village project takes a major
step forward.
Sarasota Cbunty. Palmer
Ranch and Henry Rodriguez
are the owners of property
available for development
along the road.
On the south side east of
Spanish Lakes Mobile Home
Park is 220 acres acquired by
Henry Rodriguez bordering


660 acres to the east retained
by Palmer Ranch.
On the northern side is
110 acres owned by Palmer
Ranch, the remainder being
Oscar Scherer Park and
county property.
The most significant de-
velopment to follow the
approval is the announce-
ment by real estate investor
Henry Rodriguez of plans
and a design for a new vil-
lage project, likely to be
called Sorrento, a name sug-
gested by supporting com-
munity groups.
Located east of Spanish
Lakes, access will be from
S.R. 681.


Sorrento Village will be
built on land originally zon-
ed in the 1990s by national
mobile home company,
LAN Ron. Development of
642 homes was planned, but
it never took off.
Rodriguez liked the loca-
tion and provided local
communities with his vision
of a unique Italian-style vil-
lage in preference to a huge
mobile home park.

his enthusiasm to create

The good news is Sarasota
County has a 81.7 percent
high school graduation rate.
The bad news is, close to half
the students who go on to
attend a Florida community
college are not ready for col-
lege-level work, according to
a new study released by the
Florida Department of Edu-
cation.
Statewide statistics show-
ed similar findings.
Education Commissioner
John L. Winn unveiled the
new report late last week. It
provides Florida's public high


schools with information
about the performance of
their 2004 graduates.
While the report does not
give a complete picture of col-
lege readiness, it does shed
some light on area high
schools and students who
went on to attend Florida
postsecondary institutions.
The report does not track stu-
dents who are attending pri-
vate or out-of-state institu-
dons.
According to the report,
54.6 percent of Venice High
grads and 40.1 percent of
North Port grads went on to

Flames have flared up
again between the county
and its firefighters over staf-
fing and resource levels.
A Dec. 4 house fire in Os-
prey fueled the latest debate.
"The response time was 13
minutes," Suncoast Profes-
sional Firefighters & Para-
medics President Mike Ste-
phenson said. "National stan-


dards recommend a siLx-
minute response time."
Stephenson said if fire-
fighters can respond in six
minutes, they can usually
knock down a fire.
The Osprey house was
mostly destroyed, Stephen-
son said, but no one was in-
jured.
"This is an everyday occur-
rence," he said. "The fire truck
was out of the district getting
supplies, supplies that used

Stephenson ripped the

Stephenson stated. "I implore

Deciding East Venice Avenue's future look


BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

A crowd of at least 50 peo-
ple showed up to Sarasota
County's first workshop on the
East Venice Avenue Planning
Initiative.
The workshop drew a mixed
crowd looking to find out how
the mostly undeveloped land
just outside of city limits will
be developed. In September,
county commissioners issued
a six-month rezoning morato-
rium on the area.
A look at an aerial map
reveals that roughly two-thirds
of the land, along East Venice
Avenue between Jacaranda
Boulevard and River Road,
with Interstate 75 to the north,
is zoned as low density at only
two or fewer homes per acre.
County commissioner
Shannon Staub, who observed
at the meeting, said most of


Correction
Due to incorrect informa-
tion provided to the Gondo-
lier Sun, the Dec. 2 article
"Trash Talking the Referen-
dum" stated 30 percent of
North Port High School stu-
dents are enrolled in special
education classes. In fact, 20
percent are designated ESE,
according to the school's ESE
director.


the audience members ap-
peared to be land owners or
professionals representing
land owners.
"My overall impression
was that people were con-
cerned as to the future of the
area and the effect on their
lands, ... (and they are) won-
dering if the county would
listen to their collective con-
sensus," Staub said. "There
was a mix of owners who
don't want change both
rural estate owners and Blue
Heron subdivision owners -
and who plan to be there for
years, those who want to see a
mixture of residential and
other uses commercial
didn't seem to be advocated
by many and those who
want to sell their properties in
the near future."
Saturday's meeting was
the first in a series. The next
public meeting will be Jan.
14, with the time and loca-
tion still to be announced.
The workshop was facili-
tated by Anne Merrill, the
consultant for the study, and
Florida House Institute for
Sustainable Development,
according to Tate Taylor with
Sarasota County Planning
Services.
"The workshop focused
on learning more about the
area, and provided input
from the community on op-
portunities and assets the


area presented," Taylor wrote
in an e-mail update to county
commissioners. "Jan. 14 will
be the next workshop, which
will discuss possibilities for
the area. This will be followed
by one more workshop in
early February. The planing
initiative will then be heard
by the planning commission
on March 2, followed by hear-
ings with the board on March
21 and April 11."
City Manager Marty Black
was glad to see open discus-
sion finally begin on the
area's future, but does not
think the county gave itself
enough time to complete the
project within, the moratori-
um's six-month window,
"It's an admirable goal,
but if I was sitting on the
county's side, I'd be wonder-
ing if I could get it all done (by
April)," Black said.
City of Venice officials and
employees did not partici-
pate as facilitators, but Plan-
ning and Zoning Director
Tom Slaughter was in the
audience. All of the area be-
ing discussed is within Sara-
sota County's jurisdiction.
Slaughter's analysis was
the workshop was well' orga-
nized and had plenty of
graphics, but may have left
some citizens wanting more
specific ideas,

ning industry, the workshop

Famed Life photographer Loomis Dean dies


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Legendary Life magazine
photographer and former
Venice Gardens resident
Loomis Dean died Dec. 7, in
Sonoma, Calif. He was 88.
Born in Monticello, Fla., in
'1917, he moved to Sarasota at
the age of 16, almost immedi-
ately becoming enamored
with the Ringling Bros. and
Barnum & Bailey Circus,
which wintered there from
1927-1959 and in Venice from
1960-1992.
Eventually, he followed his
muse, literally running away
to join the circus long before
he began his career with Life
magazine.
But first, intrigued with' a
friend's dark room, he hitch-
-hiked. to Rochester, N.Y.,
where he attended the East-
man School of Photography,
paying his way with a scholar-
ship and money earned
washing dishes.
His professional carter
began as a junior press agent
with the Ringling circus,
where he cultivated a side job
photographing the vast array
of circus performers and
workers. For four seasons of
mainly one-night stands he
covered the country with the
circus train, developing his
film at night in his hotel
room, rinsing the prints in the
tub.
During World War II, he
served as an Army Air Corps
photographer, covering the
war in the Pacific from the air
and on the ground.
He joined the staff of Life
magazine in 1947, eventually
filling 52 covers.
His first Life cover was his


photo of a Ringling .circus
giraffe and famous clown Lou
Jacobs of Sarasota.
Other cover subjects in a
career with Life that lasted
more than 40 years included
the sinking of the Andrea
Doria and the wedding of
Queen Elizabeth II of Eng-
land.
Considered the dream job
of the day, the Life post led.to
a lifetime of cosmic encoun-
ters with the likes of luminar-
ies such as Elvis Presley,
Liberace, Noel Coward and J.
Paul Getty.
Lemurs and Elvis,
In 1956, en route with his
wife and children to his new
job in Life's Paris bureau
aboard the ile de France, the
ship came upon the sinking
Andrea Doria and returned to
New York with the survivors
and Loomis' pictures.
Returning to Paris by air,
he was in time for communist
riots, and war in Suez, fol-
lowed by a succession of
major world events, from
wars to royal weddings, from
popes to fashion designers,
lemurs in Madagascar and oil
sheiks in Kuwait.
He stayed in Paris 25 years,
marrying his second wife,
Peggy Massin, a Reuters fash-
ion writer, there.
While other Life photogra-

more laid-back manner

in St. Moritz. The prince glad-
ly posed for Dean in his win-

on a Bongo Board.
Another tale concerns
Noel Coward, who obliged as

Thanks, pope
Of Dean's many awards, a
favorite was the 1965 Papal
Prize in Rome. He donned a
dark suit and flew in from
Paris to receive it from the
pope himself.
. The text was complex, and
his name was misspelled: "To
Mr. Lommis Dean, for the
plasticity of the image and the
relief of the color, which
translates in visible terms the
idea of the Church in move-
ment in the light of grace and
the sanctifying experience."
Loomis never missed a
beat.
"Why," Dean said to the
pope, "that's exactly what I
had in mind."
When the Deans retired
from their jobs in Paris, they
moved to Venice Gardens. He
moved to California two years

death.
In 1999 there was a retro-

SMH North Venice campus moves to next stage


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS! COLUMNIST

The Sarasota Memorial
Hospital Board has taken the
next major step in the devel-
opment of the new Laurel
Road Ambulatory health
campus in North.Venice.
Chief Executive for Ambu-
latory Development Michael
Harrington confirmed the
hospital board has approved
Marshall Erdman & Associ-
ates to partner in the campus
design.
Erdman, of Madison,
Wisc., is a major builder of
healthcare facilities and has
completed 3,500 facilities
during "the past 50 years. The


company is known nationally
for its specialty work in am-
bulatory design and recently
has undertaken a project for
Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort
Myers. Four years ago it com-
pleted the Cleveland Clinic's
70-bed hospital and adjoin-
ing ambulatory surgery cen-
. ter in Naples.
Harrington said Erdman
will. produce a development
plan that, 'following SMH
board, will be submitted for
permitting.
"We want to start as soon
as possible, and hopefully it
will be next fall," he said.
Erdman will assume total
project responsibility, under-
taking planning, design and


construction.
It is anticipated the new
Laurel Road Campus design
master plan will be available
in April 2006.
"We have already received
.lots of calls from business-
people desiring to be located
at this new ambulatory facili-
ty in North Venice," Harring-
ton said. "Those offering
complementary medical ser-
vices and companies provid-
ing health related retail ser-
vices will be accommodated
in the outparcels surrounding
the walk-in medical center.
Before these can be identified
it is necessary to work on the
master plan with our contrac-
tors, Erdman & Associates, to


develop an overall site plan."
A lot of people will be
employed in the mini-hospi-
tal ambulatory outpatient
campus. Over the long term
- five to eight years as the
campus grows, 350 to 400
positions will be created for
the .offices and clinical pro-
grams, according to Harring-
ton.
There will be eight exami-
nation- rooms within the
walk-in medical center.
Eventually 50 to 80 physicians
will operate the ambulatory
facilities and family doctor
offices, together with diag-
nostic, radiology, laboratory
services and an outpatient
surgery center. There will be


health-related retail services
located on the outparcels of.
the campus.
As technology advances,
there will be opportunities to
provide more services on an
outpatient basis, meeting the
needs and demands of pa-
tients. In several locations
across the country campuses
are focused on cancer ambu-
latory care, but this possibility
has not been addressed for
the North Venice location.
In August, Sarasota Mem-
orial Hospital Chief Executive'
Officer Gwen MacKenzie
confirmed the purchase of 63
acres of land from North
American Properties Laurel
LLC for $25 million.


The land borders Inter-
state 75, Laurel Road, Pine-
brook Road and additional
property on Curry Lane. The
decision had been made on
needs assessments, with the
SMH Board choosing two
locations to explore Uni-
versity Parkway in the North
and Laurel Road in South
County.
The cost of the North
Venice Campus is not avail-
able, but MacKenzie said it is
planned to have joint ven-
tures with physicians who
will partner with the develop-
er, owning part of their build-
ing. Medical retail services are
expected to have similar ar-
rangements, or leases.


M&D Restaurant in Osprey not going anywhere


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Rumor notwithstanding,
the land on which Osprey's
popular M&D restaurant is:
not for sale, according.to its
owner. What's more, the
restaurant's proprietors have
no plans to move. They antic-
ipate a growing volume of-
business.
With construction of the
$220-million Bay Street Vil-
lage and Town Center com-
plex next door scheduled to
begin in March 2006, patrons
and residents have been
expressing fears that another
popular landmark was about
to disappear.
Henry Rodriguez, develop-
er of Bay Street, has expressed
interest in purchasing the 1-
acre tract on U.S. 41.


"It would enhance ;our
presence on 41," he said;
But Steve Xihidis, a Venice
resident who owns this prop-
erty and commercial proper-
ty on East Venice Avenue, is
insistent about ownership:
"I'll never sell my Osprey
property."
He purchased it five years
ago. A restaurant has been on
the site for almost 19 years.
Before it was called the M&D,
it was known as the Travers'
restaurant for 15 years, ac-
cording to Xihidis.
Good competition
Cleo and Tom Galanos, co-
prietors of M&D with Jamies
Williams, have operated it
since 2001. Prior to that, the
Galanosed ran the Patches.
restaurant on East Venice
Avenue for eight years.


"We anticipate consider-
able growth in our business,
now that Wal-Mart has open-
ed a supercenter next door,"
Cleo said. "Competition is


.1


good for us."
The 94-seat restaurant is
open every day, from 7 a.m.
Bay Street Village has ne-
gotiated leases with six re-


gional and national restau-
rants that plan to locate in the
shopping area, They will offer
Italian, Asian and Mediter-
ranean cuisine. A sports bar


and a martini piano bar are
also contemplated, according
to Ray Rodriguez of Bay Street
Village & Town Center Realty,
agent for the complex.

GRADS from Page lA
attend a public postsec-
ondary institution in Florida
during fall 2004. (Countywide
the number is 50.3 percent,
statewide 52.3 percent.)
In South County, Venice
High graduates were more
than twice as likely to attend a
state university than North
Port graduates. Both sent
about 26 percent of their
graduates to a Florida com-
munity college, but Venice
sent 27 percent on to univer-
sities while North Port sent
11.2 percent. Statewide, 30.7
of high school grads go on to
attend a Florida community
college, while 21.7 attend a
state university.
Struggling
College assessment scores
show high schools through-,
out the state are struggling to
produce graduates who are
ready to go on to postsec-
ondary education.
Generally, high percent-
ages of graduates were able to
pass individual subject as-
sessment tests in reading,
writing and math by the col-
leges. But far fewer were able
to pass all three. The assess-
ments are designed to test a
student's ability to handle col-
lege-level course work.
Statewide, only 44.8 per-
cent of 2004 graduates who
attended a community col-
lege in Florida passed all three
core subjects. Sarasota Coun-
ty's figure was 52.1 percent.
In South County, 54.8 per-
cent of 2004 Venice High
grads and 48.2 percent of
North Port High grads passed
all three subjects.
When the statistics are
recalculated based on cut
scores for graduates who
completed a "college-prep
curriculum" during high
school defined by DOE as
curriculum that is aligned
with state university admis-
sion requirements all
schools showed improve-
ment, but still remained low.
The percentage of Venice
Ifigh graduates :who passed
the college cut scores ro 6 'to'
64.2 percent, while "North
Port's rose to 58.5 percent.
Out of practice?
There are a host of reasons
for the poor performance on
college placement tests, says
Lori White, associate superin-
tendent of instruction with
Sarasota County School Dis-
trict.
To begin with, placement
tests are not aligned with
school tests.
"We've done some re-
search on the correlation with
school assessments and col-
lege placement exams," White
said. "We found there is some.
But there are significant dif-
ferences. College math, for
example, is focused on alge-
bra. Anything less than that
(level) and a student will be
deemed in need of remedia-
tion. There-is also a lot more
done with writing at the .col-
lege level more word usage
and more holistic writing."
"In some cases we did find
students who passed FCATs
showed a need for remedia-
rion at Manatee Community
College."
Another reason for the
poor performance on CPTs is
students may be out of prac-
tice.
College placement tests are
typically given just prior to
entering college. FCATs, and
the crash courses to prepare
for them, are typically 10th-
grade exams. It could be two
to three years later before a
student takes the CPT. Add to
that students who take a few
years off after high school
before entering community
college.
"If it has been a long time
since a student was in school,
it could be they just haven't
practiced," White said. "It's a
combination of things: some


skills were taught at an earlier
grade, and in some cases stu-
dents are not taking enough
rigor."
Venice encouraged
Venice High principal Can-


Recycle this
newspaper


dace Millington said she is
glad DOE has started prepar-
ing the report, and encour-
aged with the results.
"It shows that students
who perhaps had not plan-
ned on going to postsec-
ondary education, but ,who
did, have some areas that
need strengthening," she
said. "I am encouraged be-
cause we have more students
attending college. More are
.seeing the need to continue
their education and are
putting it into their plans.
"Some kids used to see
high school as the exit point.
Now they are seeing that's not
the way the world works any-
more. Education is ongoing."
Millington points to data
showing Venice High gradu-
ates scored 10 percentage
points above the rest of the
state on reading and math
FCATs, and similar results on
SAT and ACT tests.
She also points to the
number of Venice graduates
who took higher level cours-
es, Thirty-nine percent of
grads in 2004 took at least one
advanced placement course
or were dually enrolled at
Manatee Community Col-
lege. Districtwide, 34.8 per-
cent took an AP course.
Millington said the num-
ber of Venice High students
taking an AP course has
quadrupled in recent years.
SShe is especially proud of
Venice's algebra scores. Of the
2004 graduates enrolled in a
math course during fall 2004,
78.1 percent completed an
Intermediate Algebra course
with a grade of "C" or better.
That's a full 20 percentage


points better than either the
county or state average.
"I'm very pleased with
Venice High's data," Milling-
ton said. "It helps the school
to tool its improvement
efforts to meet our clientele.
Without the report we don't
know where to make adjust-
ments.
"We're making changes,
and reforms are paying off.
We're obviously doing some-
thing right. We will know
more when we have next
year's report. It's important to
identify trends.'"
North Port High principal
George Kenney said his staff
had yet to review the report
but looked forward to the
feedback it might provide.
"It's always helpful for us to
see how our students perform
beyond high school how
well they were prepared and
the challenges they faced. We
don't have a lot of history at
North Port High," Kenney
said.
The school opened in 2001
with grades six-10. North Port
High's first graduating class
was in 2004.
Indicators
Individualized for each
school, the report is intended
to present a comprehensive
profile of college readiness
based on graduates' perfor-
mance, while still in high
school compared to their'
enrollment in and first
semester performance at a
postsecondary institution.
Administrators can use the
analyses contained in the
report to effectively evaluate
and plan school improve-


ment strategies.
This is the earliest schools
have had access to this data
and the first time it has b6en
available in one, consolidated
report.
"As an increasing number
of Florida high school stu-
dents are graduating and the
growing workforce needs of
our state call for employees
with some sort of postsec-
ondary education, it is essen-
tial that we are able to deter-
mine how well our high
school students have been
prepared for higher educa-,
tion," said Winn. "These re-
ports will provide high school
administrators and teachers
with a valuable' tool for
improving student learning
and achievement."

DEBATE from Pae lA


fire department budget.
"That is more than enough
money needed to solve our
problems," Stephenson said.
SPFP District Vice Pres-
ident Phil Vets agrees that the
county has spent some
money on new facilities and
new technology. But he said.
the department has only
added five firefighters in the
past five years.
However, neither Stephen-
son nor Vets puts the total
blame for an understaffed fire
department on Gorski;
"He puts money in the


budget and Ley (County
Administrator Jim Ley) takes
it out before it even gets to the
commissioners," Vets said.
"The commissioners have
not even been able to follow
the capital improvement plan
that Gorski put forward."
Flawed premise?
Stephenson said on any
given day, there are 89 county
firefighters on duty.
"Fifty of them were at that
Osprey house fire," Stephen-
son said. "That doesn't leave
many for other emergencies."
Sarasota County Deputy
County Administrator Dave


Bullock said that is a flawed
premise. He said if another
emergency had occurred at
the same time, help would be
there.
"Mutual aid would have
kicked in," Bullock said.
Mutual-aid pacts are
agreements between neigh-
boring communities to assist
each other in times of emer-
gency.
Stonewalled
Terrence E Kehoe is a for-
mer Sarasota County Fire
Operations Chief.
"The county administra-
tion, year after year, refuses to


address this serious matter of
firefighter safety," Kehoe said,
"as well as the need to add
additional fire stations and
personnel to areas that are
growing rapidly so the de-
partment can keep pace with
the growth."
Bullock said that is simply
not true.
"To suggest that nothing is
happening, I just don't know
where that is coming from,"
Bullock said. "But what we
should be discussing is public
safety, how are we doing now,
and what are we planning to
do in the future."


County safe
Bullock said by all profes-
sional standards, Sarasota
County is one of the safest
counties in Florida.
He said public safety is
measured in a variety of ways.
"Eighty-five percent of our
emergency activity is EMS
and the key measurement is
how did our patients do,"
Bullock said. "Of all the peo-
ple in cardiac arrest when our
people get there, 31 percent
are discharged. That is an
amazing number, and a sta-
tistic you won't find anywhere
in Florida."
Bullock said that 85 per-


cent of the county's emer-
gency, calls are EMS. The
remaining 15 percent are fire.
"The fire loss in our county
is also very, very low," Bullock
said. "We are continually
compiling data that lets us
help you with fire prevention.
We can even tell you what
streets most of the fires are
on, where they start.
"Whatwe are doing then is
going out to those streets and
neighborhoods with educa-
tional materials, knocking on
doors."

underutilized infrastructure,
existing roads, electricity,
'sewer and water in prefer-
ence to expanding into new
undeveloped areas, usually
east of the interstate.
, "Because of a settlement in
the '90s between Palmer
Ranch and the county, all
impact fees will go toward the
Honore relief road facilitating
a grid system relieving the
overcapacity interstate and
U.S. 41," commented Rod-
riguez.
The Tampa Bay Regional
Planning Council last month
calculated that proposed
construction staggered over
six years at a cost of $750 mil-


lion with-1,700 housing units,
22,000 square feet of retail
and 20,000 square feet of
offices would provide major
benefits, including impact
fees, new jobs and income to
the existing community.
Rodriguez perceives Sor-
rento Village will have the
striking appearance of antiq-
uity,' looking and feeling
authentically old, as if it had
been built in different stages
reminiscent of the great
European villages in Italy.
Centered around a 25-acre
existing lake will be commu-
nity activities, 60 small shops,
a gourmet grocery store, out-
door cafes and coffee bars


where people can relax. Along
narrow streets, flowers will
'hang out of windows.
Brownstone paving will lead
to townhomes, and in other
sections tree-lined streets will
lead to condominiums and
single-family homes.
For residents and visitors
there will be adequate her-
ringbone street and parking
lots. Property owners will
access parking at the rear of
properties.
Seamless
Within this socially inter-
active village, Rodriguez sees
the continuation of an urban
style of living that isi already


taking shape in his Osprey
Bay Village development.
Doctors and dentists are
buying offices and want to
live on top of them. A person
plans to open a bakery and
live over it.
As a board member of the
Affordable Housing Trust,
Rodriguez will encourage the
Sarasota County Housing
Trust plan providing seamless
workforce housing in Sor-
rento Village for police offi-
cers, nurses, teachers, .bank
branch managers, doctors'
assistants and people who
chose to live where they work.
Sooner or later


"I foresee a village police
substation, and maybe we
will bring the innovative fiber
broadband network system
too, with the fastest Internet
access andhighest quality TV
and radio for every home,"
said Rodriguez whose career
began, in communications
technology.
Input from 15 community
workshops has already result-
ed in changes to the original
village design.
Talks have begun with
Mission Valley Golf Course on
a possible co-marketing
agreement for village resi-
dents.
The objective is to involve


all surrounding communities
to enjoy -the facilities of
Sorrento Village by walking or
cycling using the rails-to-
trails paths or driving to the
village, said Rodriguez.
When could it become a
reality? He admits it is his
vision, but as yet it has not
been submitted for rezoning.
"We're very comfortable
with the community input, so
it could be two months from
now, or three years," he said.
"I listen .to the community
and try to educate on the
principals of smart growth
and new urbanism.
"Sorrento will be a $1-bil-
lion budget!"

Commission OKs



proposed schools


BY ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

North Port city commis-
sioners unanimously approv-
ed a change to the map for
the proposed West Villages to
allocate space for two new
area schools Monday. With
their approval, the map is
now final.
"This application was
approved by the commission
previously, with the stipula-
tion that the necessary school
sites be shown. This amend-
ment accomplishes that stip-
ulation," said Planning and
Zoning Director Sam Jones.
The two sites include 30
acres for an elementary
school and 15 acres for a 600-
student technical high school
adjacent to Marlatee Com-
munity College.
Commissioner Fred Tower
III asked Ken Marsh, the


director of long-range plan-
ning for the Sarasota County
School Board, if the new
schools would satisfy the edu-
cational needs of the district,
"(They) will satisfy the
needs for the next 12-15 years
of build-out. After that, it
remains to be seen," Marsh
said. 'At this time, we're satis-
fied."
The West Villages site,
which is 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 technical high
school will provide instruc-
tion for non-collegebound
students with curricula such
as digital design, medical and
,legal administration, and
computer technology.

Crowd boos

condo project

BY RACHEL ALEXANDER
STAFF WRITER

A huge crowd showed up
Monday night to voice con-
cerns about a proposed 98-
unit condominium project on
South Oxford Drive and East
Dearborn Street.
Urban Resources, owner of
the 7.3-acre property, will be
seeking a zoning change from
one unit per acre to 13 units
per acre Thursday before the
Sarasota County Planning
Commission.
The project would feature
eight buildings over two levels
of parking. Each would be 69
feet above ground, according
to Brian Lichterman of Vision
Planning and Design, a repre-
sentative of Urban Resources.
About 80 residents, mostly
Oxford Drive landowners,
complained they had not
been notified of the proposed
zoning change.
However, Lichterman said,

Chamber of commerce building delayed


BY ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER'
STAFF WRITER

Plans for constructing the
North Port Area Chamber of
Commerce building near the
new City Center complex, off
Price Boulevard, may be de-
layed for up to a year.
While city commissioners
tried to help the local cham-'
ber with leasing land near the
newly built city hall, there is a
lack of stormwater access in
the area. This issue came
before commissioners Mon-
day.
"I know you'd like nothing
more than to move forward,"
said City Engineer Pat Collins
to commissioners and North
Port Area Chamber of Com-
merce representatives, "but
the issue is, there's no place to
put the stormwater. If the city
doesn't 'master plan' it out,
there won't be room for any-
thing else out there."
The city planned to lease
the chamber a parcel of land
to build a combination North
Port Welcome Center and
chamber of commerce build-
ing there. However, the cur-


rent stormwater pond serves
the nearby George D. Mullen
Community Activity Center,
the new fire station and the
new city hall building.
This pond, as well as the
smaller retention area near
the North Port Pop Warner
Mustang football practice
field, is "maxed out." Collins
said it can't support anything
beyond the existing infra-
structure.
Because stormwater reten-
tion is mandated by the state,
the city will have to work with
the chamber to find a solu-
tion before either party can
enter into the lease.
'No one looked ahead'
Commissioner Vanessa
Carusone asked whether
some of the land designated
toward a proposed post office
could be used for retention.
"The post office is looking
to have a regional facility
there, and so they're rework-
ing their plans to include a
stormwater plan just for
them," Collins said.
Once a master storinwater
plan has been finalized, the


chamber will have to go
through the design review
and planning and zoning
process, which could take
between six and eight
months.
Other elements of the lease
have yet to be determined,
including the terms and
duration of the contract and
the architectural style of the
structure.
"Lots of things need to be
decided," said commission
vice chair Barbara Gross. "It's
sad that we're faced with this
because no one looked
ahead."
Commissioners will hold a
special workshop to iron out
details of the lease at 3 p.m.
on Feb. 8.

LET 'EM HAVE m DOES VENICE MUNICIPAL AIRPORT NEED SOUND
AND VAPOR BARRIERS? CALL US AT 207-1111.

Something stinks besides the fruitcake


Barriers needed. I'm now
standing at the Rialto Shop-
ping Center. It's a little after
10:20 and you can smell jet
fuel from the Venice airport.
They must be refueling or sit-
ting and idling for rather long
periods of time. And about
three years come this January,
the mayor of the city ofVenice
was going to check into the
vapor barriers as well as
sound barriers for the Venice
Municipal Airport.
These are used elsewhere
for these types of problems.
Fuel vapors are a health haz-
ard, pure and simple. If we
can afford $600,000 worth of
shade trees, instead of some-
thing to help clear the air, ver-
sus the Arizona palms, which
do absolutely nothing for the
environment.
Again, it is time to check
into this health hazard. There
are nursing homes, child day
care centers within a block or
two of the airport. Fuel vapors
are a health hazard.
Encouraging disaster. In
the long run, America's un-
wise and misguided econom-
ic policy will end up destroy-
ing the Earth and us. The
encouraging of China, India
and others to emulate us in
economic matters is a total
disaster.
It is estimated by environ-
mental economists that it
would take seven or eight.
Earths if China and India's bil-
lions were to reach our stan-
dard of living.
This insistence on spread-
ing democracy and creating
mass-consumption. econ-
omies around the Earth is a
sure path to our destruction.
As China, India and others
turn to mass-consumption,
the competition for the
Earth's resources will sharpen
and all of us will pay more and
more for all the commodities.
We need to seriously rethink
our foreign economic policy.
Who to call? We used to


CONDO from Page 8A
visory Committee approved
the higher-density land-use
designation in 1993.
He said a public workshop
was held March 1, 1993. The
committee recommended
the plan to the county's
Planning and Zoning Board,
which held a public hearing
May 20, 1993.
It was approved by com-
missioners after another pub-
lic hearing, Lichterman said.
"What good is planning if
you don't follow the plan?" he
asked. "I know they don't like
it, but as soon as it's built,
they're using it every day. It
adds an element to the area."
Lichterman said the zon-
ing makes sense because the
mostly vacant parcel is at a
major intersection particu-
larly since Dearborn Street,
River Road and Pine Street are
scheduled to be widened in
2006.
Smart development
The contract for construc-
tion of the first 3,000 feet of the
Pine Street extension north to
Taylor Ranch will be put out to
bid in January, according to
Jonathan Cole, of Giffels-
Webster in Englewood, engi-
neers for the project
This is what planned de-
velopment is all about, Licht-
erman said.
"Talk about smart develop-
ment," he said. "The reason
why this is appropriate is
because this is a compact
form of development."
But residents said condo-
miniums don't mesh with the
area's atmosphere and place
too much strain on infrastruc-
ture.
Others were concerned
about heavy stormwater run-
off into Gottfried Creek.
South County Homeown-
ers Association Chair Tom
Minnich said residents would
present their objections when


commissioners consider the
zoning change.
That meeting is Thursday
at 6:30 p.m. in commission
chambers in Sarasota.


have a very nice sidewalk that
served as a walking path and
a bike trail between Hatchett
Creek Road and Venice Ave-
nue on Jacaranda Boulevard.
Last year, developers


developing the southwest
corner of Jacaranda Boul-
evard by Venice tore up the
sidewalk to put their initial
road entrances in. This has
been torn up for more than a


year.
Other than the infrastruc-
ture, no development has
occurred there, and yet peo-
ple no longer have a bike trail.
It's a messy gravel mess.
Why are developers al-
lowed to destroy sidewalks,
bike paths, walking paths,
and not be made to fix these?
Who do we call here in Venice
to take care of something like
that?

OUR VIEW



One man's trash is another man's truth


Occasionally we get calls or letters from
our readers questioning our judg-
ment, sanity and/or taste in publish-
ing an item on our opinion pages.
The most recent one took us to task for
printing letter likening Santa to Satan and
urged us to "exercise a little common sense"
in our choice of letters.
"You do the public a disservice by subject-
ing the community of Venice to such literary'
trash," our reader wrote. (We're not printing
more of that letter because it said some
rather unkind things about the author of the
Santa/Satan letter, who siicerely is worried
about those of us who don't see things as she
does. Another comment on that letter does
appear here today.)'
- While we certainly understand that point
of view, we must respond by saying that air-,
ing such opinions actually is a public senice,
one we perform proudly, even especially


- 'when the opinions.don't agree with purs.
SFew would disagree that Christmas has
been overcommercialized for years, but even
fewer, we suspect, would go to the extreme of
equating Santa with the devil. We certainly
wouldn't, at least not while he's making his
list and checking it twice.
Some people do, however, and that view,
though outside the mainstream, is not so
extreme that it isn't worth bringing up for dis-
cussion here. Accept it orreject at as you see fit.
Opinion pages are not and never have been
only for popular opinions. As you might sus-
pect, it's usually the letters that are a little bit
"out there" you could say unpopular that
are the most thought- and debate-provoking.
Conducting a poll to see whether we think
our readers will like the contents of a letter in.
order to consider it for publication would be
a pointless exercise anyway, since on most
issues there is a variety of opinions, and a let-


ter that will make one reader hopping mad
will have another jumping for joy'
After all, not all great ideas have been rec-
ognized and embraced as such from the out-
set. That's especially true of the world's major
religions including Christianity which
had to gain and build upon a foothold
among people willing to put aside what
everyone else believed was the unquestion-
able truth.
It's 'certainly comfortable to read things
that agree with the opinions we have already
formed, but it's by challenging those opin-
ions that we grow. We humans have many
virtues; infallibility isn't among them.
That's not to say every opinion is worth
spending ink and paper on. We publish most
of the letters we get, but there are a few like
the one about the Santa/Satan letter that
go too far in some way to be printable.
Since that's our policy, bear in mind the


fact that we print a letter means only that we
thought you might find it worth reading.
,We're not vouching for the author or the con-
tents, and we're not endorsing them.
One letter will say the president, for exam-
ple, walks on water, the next will say he can't
swim. They can't both' be true, but each can
make some valid points. Just don't try to dis-
cern what we think from our publishing
both, or either one separately.
So read our opinion pieces with an open
mind, at least out of respect for the people
who put their views out for public comment.
If you're convinced your perspective on an
issue is the right one, you have nothing to
fear from being exposed to a contrary opin-
ion. If you have some doubt in your mind,
what you read here might help you resolve it,
one way or another.
And if you have the time, you can write us
and share your views, too.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


No tax money, so no publIC access


Editor:
On Dec. 7, Ed Martin outlined several issues in his column
titled "Silver lining in the clouds?" I wanted to take this oppor-
tunity to clarify a few statements he made in reference to the
Venetian Golf & River Club in North Venice.
The streets within Venetian Golf & River Club are owned by
the Venetian Community Development District, a quasi-gov-
ernmental entity. Consequently, the streets are not, by defini-
tion, "private."
The residents cannot deny anyone access to publicly owned
property, but they can and do collect information about visi-
tors, including information about automobile makes and
license plate numbers and verifying identification prior to
allowing visitors into thecommunity. Any property owned by a
CDD falls under these same guidelines.
In response to Mr. Martin's statement that "city residents
can enter the Venetian Golf & River Club to reach the water-
front conservation easement," I am obligated to point out'that
the River Club property is not open to the general public.
The land along the river (the preserve), like the River Club; is
private property, not owned by the CDD. Therefore, it does not
fall under the same rules as the streets as far as public access is
concerned. .
The residents of Venetian Golf & River Club pay the bills to
maintain the preserve area through their association dues. No
public tax money is used.
Since the public has no stake in the ownership or mainte-
nance of the tract, the residents have every right to restrict its
use exclusively to owners and guests of Venetian Golf & River
Club.

Lighten up, it's only Santa
Editor:
Kathy Bolam is so deter-
mined to take all the fun out
of life that one must grudg-
ingly admire her persistence.
She says that the letters in
the word "Santa" also spell
"Satan." Frankly, I never no-
ticed it. My friends and I are
too busy doing volunteer
work to waste time on inane
word games.
Perhaps Kathy should try,
doing something for some-
body else. If bitter, unhappy
people would only perform
charitable acts, it would
change their outlook. To be
happy, do good.

Better teachers mean better education for Sarasota County


r -q


-'




GARY NORIMS
GUEST COLUMNIST


In a recent column by Bob
Vedder, the headline asks the
question: "Is this pay raise
worth it?"
He is referring to a program
that Sarasota County Public
Schools has recently institut-
ed to give teachers a pay raise
for more instructional time
and training. He then goes on
to state that (the referendum
money) "is being spent on
this without public approval."
First, in answer to the
headline's question, yes, ab-


solutely, the pay raise to the
teachers is worth every pen-
ny. In fact, we consider the
program to be a win/win/win
situation.
The district wins because
we get an extra 48 hours a
year of concentrated work
from each participating
teacher. The teachers win be-
cause they get a higher salary
for improving their knowl-
edge base. And, most impor-
tant, the students win be-
cause teachers learn a new set
of skills to implement in their
classrooms.
Second, in answer to mon-
ey being spent "without pub-
lic approval,", the citizens
spoke loudly and clearly
when the referendum was
passed by a 2-to-i margin in
2002: Recruit the best teach-
ers and pay them well.
We have followed the com-
munity's demands and used
referendum funds to increase
teachers' salaries. And, we
have found a creative way to


get something extra in return.
I venture to guess nearly
every one of you had a
teacher you can thank for
contributing to your educa-
tion in some positive way.
Teaching has always been
a noble profession, but today,
education in this country is
facing a crisis because of a
severe teacher shortage.,
With more career options
available, young adults are
choosing other fields rather
than education. Their rea-
sons: higher salaries, greater
respect and less pressure.
Meanwhile, a large num-
ber of "baby boomer" teach-
ers are retiring. The number
of children entering our
schools is increasing, but who
will help mold their character
and open their minds if there
are no adults stepping into
the teacher role?
In the past, Sarasota Coun-
ty has had little difficulty re-
cruiting teachers, but that is
rapidly changing. Although


we live in paradise, nice
weather and beautiful beach-
es won't pay the bills or pro-
vide a beginning teacher with
a reasonably priced home.
According to a national Cost
of Living Index that compared
urban areas in the third quarter
of 2005, it cost 7 percent more
to live here than it did for the
average urban area.
In 2004-2005 the average
teacher salary in the United
States was $46,752, compared
to Sarasota's $44,860 (5.4 per-
cent less than the national
average). If the cost of living is
7 percent more and the pay is
5.4 percent less than the com-
petition, how will we contin-
ue to attract teachers to our
county?
School districts around the
nation have instituted cre-
ative incentives to become
competitive with the existing
job market. One of the incen--
tives Sarasota County has put
in place, and the subject of
Mr. Vedder's column, is offer-


ing teachers a pay increase of
7.1 percent of their salary for
the remainder of the school
year for working an extra half
hour daily and participating
in specific professional devel-
opment courses.
They have their choice of
courses, but the most press-
ing need is to have all teach-
ers complete the training re-
quirements to. work with stu-
dents who speak English as a
second language (ESOL). Not
having every teacher with this
endorsement has cost the
district dearly in state funds.
The skills learned in ESOL
training not only help chil-
dren with limited English suc-
ceed academically, but the
same strategies are highly
effective teaching techniques.
For those who have met
the ESOL requirement, we
offer a variety of other cours-
es, such as learning specific
techniques that help improve
a student's reading skills.
Each school principal will


monitor documentation of
course completion.
People frequently have a
misperception that teachers
work fewer hours than other
.professionals, However, in a
2003 national survey, the av-
erage teacher spends 50.3
,hours per week on instruc-
tion-related activities well
beyond their 37.5-hour work
week. Grading, planning and
meeting with parents are all
done on their own time.
The people of Sarasota
County understand that qual-
ity education starts and ends
with quality teachers. Provid-
ing competitive salaries and
asking them to work longer
and get additional training
are ample reasons for a pay
raise.

Dr. Gary Norris is the
superintendent of schools for
Sarasota County. He writes
an occasional column for this
page.

average for 298 urban areas
measured in the Cost of
Living Index.
Our teachers are behind in
average pay and the cost of
living is higher than average
- not a good prescription for
recruiting good teachers to
come to Florida.
On the district level
Sarasota in 2004-2005 had
one 'administrator for 898
children. That ranks Sarasota
the 63rd lowest in the 67
counties fifth from the bot-
tom so our administrative
costs are very low.
It is surprising to many, but
of. the 42,000 children in
Sarasota County, about one-
third come from income lev-
els that allow them to qualify
for free or reduced-price
lunch. That means that there
i


are many children who need
extra assistance to keep up
with their peers.
As the election comes clos-
er there will be more ques-
tions asked and answered
here and elsewhere in the
press. For now, let's start talk-
ing with friends who value the
future generations, and build
support for continuing to
improve our schools.


Correction
In my Nov. 30 column about J&J Homes' application for a community development dis-
trict for its proposed BellaVenetia project, I quoted a city staffer who used the term "drop
and dump" in referring to applications filed with the city without a simultaneous meeting
with city officials. When I wrote my column based on that information, I erred in taking
that term as confirmation that the staffer's statement there were no discussions with city
officials before the petition was left with the city, meant there had been no meetings what-
soever. I later learned that attorney Jeff Boone and other J&J representatives had met with
City Manager Marty Black prior to submitting the application.

The End Zone, a McCall Road
sports pub, the night of Oct. 8.
The sheriff's office report
said Gibson approached the
girl several times, asking her
to be his girlfriend. She de-
clined, the report said, telling
him she thoughtof him only
as a friend.
After midnight, the girl
walked Gibson to his truck
when he was leaving, the
report said. At that point,

After she told him to stop, he
pushed her into the back of
the cab and raped her, the
report states. The girl told
police she repeatedly tried to
kick him and told him to stop.
Afterward, the report stat-
ed, Gibson warned the girl not
to say anything, then drove
away. The girl told police she
went back into the restaurant,
went into the bathroom and

the case was decided in court.
According to the Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office, a girl
filed an affidavit late last
year alleging that Gibson had
sexually assaulted her in
Venice. The allegations are in a
probable cause affidavit filed
by the girl with the sheriff's
office, but no charges were
brought against Gibson.
At the time of the alleged
incident, Gibson, then 16, was
a student at Venice High
School. The incident allegedly,
took place in the girl's vehicle
at Challenger Park the after-
noon of Nov. 12, 2004.
The girl alleged that Gib-
son tried to rape her, then,
forced her to have oral sex
without her consent.
In an interview with sher-
iff's deputies, Gibson con-
firmed much of the girl's
story, but said the sex was
consensual. Gibson and his
parents also initially demand-
ed that he be given a poly-
graph test, but later declined
after consulting a lawyer. -
The affidavit also stated-
that another possible victim
of an attempted sexual as-
sault had been identified.
However, there was no
further evidence or testi-
mony, and charges were nev-
er brought.
Gibson subsequently trans-
ferred to Lemon Bay High
School in Englewood.

Hearing on Warm Mineral



Springs business delayed


BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER


A conflict of interest de-
layed the penalty hearing of
Mira Matchin, who allegedly
violated an order to cease
running a business from her
Warm Mineral Springs home.
Nicholas Sardelis, attorney
representing Matchin, made
a motion Friday morning in
Sarasota asking Special Mag-
istrate Susan Chapman to
step down. In February,
Chapman entered the original
ruling against Matchin.
Sardelis said Chapman is
opposing counsel to him in a
civil matter. He said it would
be a conflict for her to preside
over Matchin's hearing.
"Had I known yesterday
you were counsel to Matchin,
I would have recused myself,"
Chapman told Sardelis at
the beginning of the penalty
phase of Matchin's hearing.
"I was prepared to ask for
an administrative fine, and a
per-day fine for violating the
original order," county Code
Enforcement officer Richard
Kuntz said, explaining that
the delay, while only a minor
inconvenience, does not af-
fect when the assessment of
fines are made.
Chapman rescheduled the
hearing for Jan. 20, 2006, in
the Robert L. Anderson build-
ing in Venice.

with her neighbors over her
alleged continuing business
operation in several Warm
Mineral Springs homes.
Papers filed earlier this
year by the County Code
Enforcement division ac-
cused Matchin of violating
zoning laws. Matchin's home
is zoned as "residential
single-family."
The order Chapman en-
tered in February forbids
Matchin from having cus-
tomers come to her home.
She was ordered not to have
employees provide medical
therapy, cooking meals or
cleaning.
At the February hearing,
Matchin denied running a
business from her home,
saying she invites "only fam-
ily and close friends."

At risk
According to Kuntz, if
Matchin is found guilty of


violating the original order,
the (daily) fines would begin
from Nov. 12. Fines will ac-
cumulate until a reinspection
is done and Matchin is in
compliance. A reinspection is
normally conducted within
48 hours before the hearing.
Kuntz said since Matchin
is operating from more than
one house, it would be up
to the special magistrate
whether to include the other
houses.
Judy Raml, the. adminis-
trative coordinator, said a
person or business that isn't
in compliance can call to
schedule an appointment
for a reinspection anytime
before the hearing.
Matchin was not at the
hearing. She could not be
reached for comment.

Venice defense

throttles

North Port

BY JOHN FINERAN
STAFF WRITER

After winning its first 11
games of the season, many
with ease, the North Port girls
basketball team has suddenly
hit a lull that has coach Tom
Tintor very concerned.
With junior point guard
Chelsea Johrison bothered by
an ankle sprain for the second
straight game, the Bobcats
were held scoreless by Ven-
ice for 6-1/2 minutes in the
first half.
Marisa Callaghan, the only
senior on an Indians team
that is rebuilding after losing
the Class 5A title game last
winter to Fort Lauderdale
Dillard, scored 12 points and
pulled in 13 rebounds as
Venice rolled to a 53-33 vic-
,tory Tullesday night.
"It seems that loss (a 49-42
district setback against Bay-
shore last Friday night) took
a lot of wind from our sails,"
Tintor said. "We're a different
team without Chelsea, and
tonight we did a lot of stand-
ing around."
Credit the Indians' rugged
man-to-man and zone de-
fenses for making things
difficult for the Bobcats, who
shot just 17 percent (10-of-60)
and made 25 turnovers.
"I think we came to make
a statement tonight," Venice
first-year coach George Stritz
said. "We're starting to learn
to play the passing lanes,
and we're working hard on
our man-to-man defense."
The Indians, who are with-
out injured starters Andrea
Krankoski and Natalie Gau-
dreau, used a 17-point run
overfthe first and second quar'
ters to break the game wide
open. Johnson started and
missed four shots in the first
quarter while guarded by
sophomore Diana Mehserle,
and Tintor then sat his quar-
terback for the final three
quarters.
"Diana was going to be
glued to her (Johnson)," add-.
ed Stritz. Mehserle, who fin-
ished with 7 points, also had
four steals. Samantha Worth-
ington had 9 points and
Lauren Ramey added 8 com-
ing off the bench for the
Indians, who are 6-5 overall
and take a .3-3 record into a
district battle Thursday at
Bradenton-Bayshore.
One bright spot for North
Port was .the play of Laura
Stegenga, who has missed
the last three weeks with
mononucleosis. She led the
Bobcats (11-2, 5-2) with 11
points, hitting three 3-point-
ers. Brittany Konik added 8
points for North Port.

Indians almost catch Palmetto Ridge as coach I -
"Kelly has lots to be-pleased about. .


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice High wrestling
team almost pulled it off.
A scant four points sepa-
rated the runnerup Indians
and team champion Palmetto
Ridge in Saturday's Captain
Archer Classic held at Char-
lotte High's gym in Punta
Gorda.
Venice, coach Dan Kelly,


whose team placed seventh
in the East Lake Tournament
the. week before, was mighty
pleased how his wrestlers
improved on the mats in just
a week.
"They just did a super
job," Kelly said. "I'm proud of
the way the kids wrestled.
We didn't have anyone in the
consolation finals at East
Lake and we had five here."
The Indians were, of


Venice's Jim Foubister has a grip on Barron Collier's Matt
Graham during their 215-pound consolation match. Foubister
won 3-2 to avenge a loss via pinfall to Graham in the
semifinals earlier in the day.

at the Captain Archer Classic at Charlotte High. Nelson won 15-5 and also was named the


tourney's Outstanding Wrestle

Nelson (160 pounds), Jeremi.e
Cook (189) and Anthony
Saputo (275), who all took
first place at their respective
weights.
Those three also, won at
East Lake.
Lifting Venice up to the
second-place finish were the,
efforts of third-place finish-
ers Wade Consul (119),. Jon
Hodge (145) and Jim Foub-
ister (171). Trevor Goodin
(135) and Will Molthop (140)


were fourth.
Palmetto Ridge, a new
Naples-area school benefit-
ting from some talent com-
ing over from Gulf Coast
plus a strong USA Wrestling
feeder system, racked up 168,
.just enough to hold off the
Indians, who totaled 164
points. North Port was a dis-
tant third in the 16-school
field.
Palmetto Ridge had five
individual champions all
in a row spanning 112-135.


Venice dominated the up-
per weights.
Nelson, who is looking big
and bad compared to his
days at lower weights, went
3-0 to capture the 160-pound
crown. In the final, he domi-
nated Bayshore strongman

came into the bout with a

Some trailer park residents may stay temporarily


Pine Shores Trailer Park
residents have been
given notices to leave
by Aug. 30. A developer
wants to build stores
and condominiums
at the busy county
intersection.

BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS
A developer whose project
at the busy northwest corner
of U.S. 41 and Stickney Point
Road has stalled may allow
some residents of an old
mobile home park to remain
on a month-to-month basis
after the Aug. 30 deadline if
their eviction notices has
expired.
"If our legal counsel indi-
cates it wouldn't do.anything
to invalidate the notices, we
might do that," Pine Shores
Trailer Park manager Beverly
Malouin said. "We'll take a
look at this in the spring. One
of the advantages for us
would be a temporary in-
come stream."
Park residents pay from
$225 to $375 per month for
rental lots. When winter resi-
dents return, about 130 of the
300 -trailers still on location
will be occupied. Many long-
time owners have already
handed over titles and their
empty units are marked for
demolition.
The Pelican Press reported
recently that a high-density
development that could put
500 condominium apart-
ments and 200,000 square
feet of retail stores onto the
already busy comer had run
into zoning hurdles and
might not get under way
until sometime in 2007.
\Benderson Development

ates more than 250 properties

acres at the comer when it
bought the trailer park from
Tollyn and Robina Twitchell,
plus the former South Key
Shell service station.
.-In late: September, the
: county commission' and its
legal advisors blocked com-
prehensive plan changes that
would clear the way for Ben-
derson to pursue its develop-
ment plan. Now it will have
to apply for a comprehensive
plan change and, possibly, a
special height exception.
Halted
Problems for the developer
surfaced during a lengthy
comprehensive plan update
exercise the commission and
staff go through every seven
years. The intersection was
tentatively designated for in-
clusion in the plan 'as a
commercial center.
When the 'commission
didn't approve a revised map
of the comer, and the county
attorneys office advised that
commercial .and high dens-
ity residential development
couldn't proceed without a
comprehensive plan amend-
Sment, a construction schedule

a secret of their plans to even-
tually sell off Pine Shores
Trailer Park. In 1985, they
advised mobile home owners
who rented spaces that the
valuable parcel would event-
ually be 'developed to its
highest and best use.


"Now we're trying to get
our renters moved," Malouin
explained. "Many of them
have no place to go. The
public housing authority has
them on a list. We may have
a more difficult time with
renters than our residents


who own their own units.
Many of them are already
gone."
On July 18, 2003, the clock
began to tick on the park's
demise when another devel-
oper Christopher C. Cogan
- signed a letter of intent to


pay the Twitchells $16.5 mil-
lion for the property. Ben-
derson eventually came into
the deal and acquired the
entire northwest quadrant.
"Our worry is that some
owners will abandon units
without surrendering titles,"


Malouin said. "If they do, it
takes months to get posses-
sion. It's even worse when
they move to Canada. We're
also concerned about a man
who has lived here since the
'40s. This will be tough on
him."

was attended by about 40 res-
idents who learned firsthand
about the project, including
some opposed to portions of,
it.
"It was a very positive
meeting," said Dennis Ledo,
the county's project manager.


"There was a lot of emotion,
but it was very -well con-
trolled. The project has a
great deal of support, but
there are many people
opposed. I don't believe one
necessarily overshadows the
other."


Two factors could lead to a
change in the project design:
1) A Florida Department of
Transportation project to
resurface Midnight Pass Road
and stripe both paved shoul-
ders for bicycle lanes; and 2)
the Out-of-Door Academy's

long-range plans.
"If the state's project takes
place in 2007 or 2008, it could
be sufficient," Ledo said, "and
--the Out-of-Door Academy's
future plans are very impor-
tant. The current location of
the school was influential in
getting this project elevated to
the design stage."
Complex
In 1996, the Out-of-Door
Academy opened a new high
school on 60 acres at Lake-
wood Ranch. Two years later,
it expanded the new campus
to accommodate seventh-
and eighth-grade students.
About 360 elementary school
students still remain at the
historic Siesta Key facility.
About 200 Siesta Key resi-
dents have signed a petition
that encourages the comple-
tion of a bicycle path network
and suggests that an existing
sidewalk along Midnight Pass
Road is sufficient for pe-
destrian traffic. Some of them
attended Monday's meeting.
The project is modeled on
what the county calls a
Regional Sidewalk Network
Prioritization Plan. It is sup-
posed to provide networks
instead of disconnected side-
walk segments, make the best
use of available funds and
provide sidewalks to schools.
On Dec. 6, county commis-
sioner Nora Patterson a
Siesta Key resident who
attended the
meeting -
said the side-
walk issues
are complex.
.." I don't
know what to
do about Mid-
night Pass
Road," she
said. "I might Patterson
want to look
at other areas where there are
no bike paths and sidewalks."
SCounty Administrator Jim
Lev said the
-project is in
the early de-
sign stage.
"It's not un-
usual when
ve're working
in someone
else's jurisdic-
tion (the state's
road right of Ley
way) that
they're repaving cycle is out of
tick with our planning" he said.
Somneplace else?
On July 26, the county
commission unanimously
approved a $361,400 contract
for the design of 5.2 miles of
Siesta Key sidewalks, plus
eight bus stops with shelters
to keep public bus passengers
out of the sun and rain while
they wait for rides.
"If they (the Florida De-
partment of Transportation)
are going to build bicycle
limanes n Mid-
night Pass
Road, could
we just put
the money
someplace
else where a
sidewalk is
needed?"
commission-
er David Mills Mills
asked. "There
is a sidewalk there now."
Ley suggested the project is
an opportunity to take the
incomplete sidewalk and
bicycle path system already
on Siesta Key and expand it
into a completed network
that provides safety for bikers
and pedestrians along busy
roadways.
There is no construction
date for the project. DMK As-
sociations Inc. has a $361,400
contract to design a sidewalk
along one side of Siesta Drive,
Higel Avenue and Midnight
Pass Road all the way from the
north bridge to Beach Road.
In addition, it will design
sidewalks along: 1) Higel Ave-

STERILIZATION AND INFECTION CONTROL
You may not be aware that sterilization and other infection control
precautions takes place in your dentist's office because many of these
procedures occur, out.of your view.
All dental staff involved in patient care use protective garb, such as
gloves, and sometimes masks and eyewear. After each patient visit, the
gloves are discarded, hands are washed and a new pair of gloves is
used for the next patient. Virtually all dentists sterilize their handpiece
(drill) between patients. Items, such as needles and saliva ejectors,
cannot be sterilized and are discarded in special containers.
Dental instruments are cleaned and sterilized at very high
temperatures after each time they are used on a patient. Sterilization
methods include: and autoclave (steam under pressure), a dry heat
Soven or chemical vapor (commonly called a chemiclave). The
sterilization equipment is not in the treatment room, but if you'd like to
see how and where it's done, ask the dental staff to show you.

Ice Cream Anonymous


7B
WEDNESDAY
DEC. 14,2005


1,000 miles and counting ...


J.J. Andrews
BACK OF THE PACK


Hello. My name's J.J., and
I'm an icrecreamaholic.
I eat ice cream every day.
Once I start eating ice cream,
I cannot stop until it is all
gone.
And then, I want more.
I really wish I were joking
about this. Unfortunately, I
developed this high-caloried
habit about four months ago
right after I quit smoking
cigarettes. I must consume at
least a pint of ice cream every
night after work, or else I'm
jittery, restless and have trou-
ble falling asleep.
My desire to keep eating
overpowers my knowledge
eating this much ice cream is
bad for me.
This definitely sounds like
a case, for Ice Cream
Anonymous, and I could be
its first member working the
road to recovery.
Mr. Competitive
Eating all of this ice cream
hasn't been a problem, thank-
fully, because I continue
training with the Venice
Runners Group three times a
week and I'm happy with my
weight. I average 35 miles of
jogging every week, so allc
these excess calories are
'burned off. . "
But there's a difference
between -"healthy weight"
and "racing weight," and right
now I'm zeroing in on achiev-
ing my old high school racing
weight which is a little
more than 10 pounds and 15
,years removed from where I
am today.
Mr. Competitive the
alter-ego0to J.J. Andrews -
ran his fastest half-marathon
everDec. 4, and now he wants
Sto run even faster by Naples
Half-Marathon on Jan. 22. Mr.
Competitive's ego is pushing
him to show off because he
knows nearly every friend
from the VRG also will be run-
ning the Naples race.
Not quite two weeks ago,
Mr. Competitive went out
and averaged 8 minutes, 16
seconds a mile on Brandon's
13.1-mile course light
years ahead of how he
thought he could NEVER
return to running faster than
9 minutes per mile, like he did
in high school. /
So Mr. Comrnpetiddve is get-
ting greedy, thinking he can '
average sub-8 per mile five'
weeks from now.


Question of calories
Mr. Competitive's training
and weekly mileage is about
as fine-tuned as it's going to
get before the Naples race. It's
down to a question of calories
in order to shed a few pounds.
I've kept a food journal the
past two months and discov-
ered I average between 3,500-
4,000 calories every day. Out.
of that, between 1,000-1,500
is made up of ice cream.
Breyers ice cream is the
principle offender, especially
strawberry or 'All That &
Caramel" flavors. I was going
through one of those contain-
ers (1.75 quarts) every other
day. There's 160 calories per
half cup of the caramel ice
cream, meaning I was eating
about 1,120 calories a night.
I tried to cut back by eating
the Edy's Slow-Churned ice
cream, which has less calo-
ries. I continued eating the
large amounts every night,
equaling about 770 calories.
To my horror, I often ate
even more because I was eat-
ing "light" ice cream.
The next trick I tried to deal
with my ice cream addiction
was to buy no more than one
pint at a time.
All this succeeded in doing
was helping the clerks at the
island Publix to get to know
me, because I'm running in
there every night just.before
closing to grab another pint.
I'm like some guy with a bad
case of the shakes rushing off
to a liquor store.
And eating by the pint is
expensive! Those things cost
$3.50-plus when they're hot-
on sale.


COURTESY PHOTO


Saturday walkabout group reaches milestone on the VWP path.


On top of that, the calorie
counts are twice as much per
half cup, and I always wind
up eating the entire pint.
* Here are my top four pint-
sized offenders.
Dove, Toffee Caramel
Moment 320 calories per
half cup, total of 1,280 per
pint (yummy).
Dove, Give In To Mint -
310 calories per half cup, total
1,240 per pint (very
Christmasy).
Godiva, White Chocolate
Raspberry 260 calories per
half cup, total of 1,040 per
pint (quite decadent).
Haagen-Dazs, Strawberry
- 250 calories per half cup,
total of 1,000 per pint (the
best strawberry ice cream
there is).
A million times before
today I've sworn off ice cream
forever.
. And a million times more,
I've relapsed.
So I've given up swearing
off forever, because that never
works.
Instead, I've decided to
give up eating ice cream just
one day at a time during the
next five weeks as I prepare
for the Naples Half-
Marathon.
But once I cross that finish
line Jan. 22, all bets are off and
I'm headed to the first ice
cream shop I can find.

The bidding has proceeded:
EAST SOUTH WEST NORTH
1 4 Pass 2* 3NT
DbI ?
What action do you take?
A Who invited you to the party?
Expect partner to hold a long, solid
minor suit, at least one spade stopper
and perhaps another card some-
where. There is no guarantee he has
any length or strength in hearts. Trust
him. Pass.
Q 2 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
410 ~ 763 OAK873 *.KQ62
The bidding has proceeded:
WEST NORTH. EAST SOUTH
3Y 44 Pass ?
What action do you take?
A The opposing preempt has made
it difficult to explore the full possi-
bilities. Partner must have a good
hand to contract for 10 tricks on his
own and, as long as partner does not
have two fast heart losers, slam
should be here. Raise to five spades.
That asks partner to go to six with
second-round heart control and to
cue-bid with first-round control.
Q 3 Neither vulnerable, as South
"you hold:
AAJ954 ? Q5 OAKJ6 +65
The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH, WEST
1NT Pass 3* Pass
3NT Pass ?
What action do you take?
A Don't give up on slam yet. Even
if there is no spade fit, there might
be one in diamonds and there is a
safe haven at no trump. Bid four dia-
monds to see what reaction that gets
from partner but respect a second
sign-off.
Q 4 Neither vulnerable, you hold:
*AQ VK8 09874 ..AKJ63


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
1V Pass 14
2., Pass 44
What action do you take?


EAST
Pass
Pass


A You have not yet begun to
describe your hand. Despite the fact
that you have so far shown a mini;-
mum with no particular liking for .
spades, partner has leaped to game. It
is time you showed your strength.
Cue-bid five diamonds and accept any
move partner then makes toward
slam.

Your right-hand opponent opens the
bidding with one spade. What action
do you take?
A Rule out two actions immediately
- a 'takeout double and an overcall
of two clubs. That leaves one option
- a bid of one no trump. If you have
a firm conviction that this hand is
unbalanced and so unsuited to a no-
trump overcall, mix a diamond in
with your spades and bid it now.

a temporizing bid in your'heart fiag-

BROTHER CRAIG
COLUMNIST

Soon it will be Christmas!
Oh, just think of how much it
will snow but not here.:
I am well aware that I may
be the only person in this
area who misses the snow
and the cold. When I tell
people I miss them, they sim-
ply tell me I'm wrong. Of
course, I just smile and say,
"Thank you very much" -
in Korean, which is the only
thing I can say in Korean even
though I spent three hours
in the Seoul, Korea, airport.
Anyway having been born
in Boston and having'
"grewed-up" irn Massachu-
setts, I miss the winter. And
winter means snow and
cold.

for the 2005 award in recogni-
tion of her support and guid-
ance in helping them accom-

She received certificates of
recognition for her dedica-

nating students' progress in

the term (which some people
like and some people do
not) snowbird (or snow-bird)
means a bird made out of
snow. So please be careful
how you use it.
Anyway, I do miss all the
beauty and "magic" of watch-
ing snowflakes fall. I have
lived without snow before,
though.
The year I spent at St.
Kieran's Seminary in Kilken-
ny, Ireland, we only had one
day of (a little) snow. That
morning found me throwing
snowballs at the other lads'
windows.' Then during the
four years I studied in Rome
it did not snow once.
But, surprising to many
people, it can -get quite cold
in Rome. Nathaniel Haw-
thorne wrote about it in a
letter, so it mustn't be a new
thing.
Anyway, enough of the
cold. It is my yearly turn to
preach. (What! You think I
can only be funny?)
During this Christmas
season, remember to help
those less fortunate than
you. (One gets in trouble
using the word "poor," as if it
were an insult!) Help places
that feed and shelter those
in need, both locally and -
don't be so fast to put that
charity letter in the trash


Pfeilsticker has a bache-
lor's degree in medical tech-
nology and microbiology.
from Pennsylvania State Uni-
versity and a master's degree
in microbiology from the
University of Pittsburgh
School of Medicine.
She worked as a senior
research associate at Baylor
School of Medicine and as a


without opening it around
the world. For everywhere
there. are people who are
hungry, people who are
home-less, people in need of
your help.
When I .was a student in
Rome, I had the privilege of
spending several days work-
ing with Mother Teresa of
Calcutta and her Sisters. How
often Mother Teresa spoke
of how people should help
those in need, even "to give
until it hurts."
This Christmas perhaps
you could buy less-expensive
presents and use the extra
money to help the needy. Or
better yet, tell your family
and friends that instead of
gifts, you would like a dona-
tion to be sent to a certain
charity. I mean, just think" of
how many ties are given as
gifts to uncles just because
people can't think of any-
thing else.
Thanks for listening (I
mean reading).
I still miss the snow.
Anyway, have a Merry
Christmas.

Students in the St. Marks preschool sang "Love Grows" at the statue dedication.

Kim Cool, Features Editor of the Venice Gondolier Sun, read

Gunther Gebel-Williams.


Paul Mercier, chair of the board of the county commission-

which owns the park where it is displayed.

would be employed.
Gebel-Williams added the
Williams name to his own
family name of Gebel to

raised him from the age of 12
and gave him his start as an
animal trainer.
Final cost for the statue.
was in excess of $40.000,

small donors and from a sale
of circus memorabilia that
kicked off the initial fundrais-

Publisher Bob Vedder made
the first contribution. The
largest donation to the statue

Enjoying

Christmas

glitz

Seasonal glitter came to life
on the runway at the Venice
Yacht Club as Krystna Knop
brought holiday fashions from
her stores on Venice Ave. for a
fashion show sponsored by
the Friends of the Venice Snym-
phony. Thanks to the efforts of
Chairmen Lois Kinzer and
Melba Martin and committee
members Cameron Buchan-
an, Janet Schotz, Stacey
Gorman, Donella Herman
and Anne Harrison about 250
women celebrated a great
afternoon.
Ruth Kaal, president of the
Friends of the Venice Sym-
phony, introduced guest mis-
tress of Ceremonies Marjorie
Floyd who added a fun com-
mentary. Marjorie is \ice pres-
ident of marketing and de-
velopment for the Gulf Coast
Community Foundation of
Venice.
Models Betty Campbell
and Ed Campbell, Sylvia
Ewing, Joe Furey, Steve Harri-
son, Flo Miles, Jean Peters,
Sandy Rehbert and Gladys
Susek walked the runway
among the guests showing off
holiday and casual apparel.
Marilyn Hendrys from Stein
Mart brought clothing for the
men which brought approval
from the crowd.
While the event raised
money for the Friends, it gave
everyone present a chance to
visit and enjoy the hQliday
season. The committee had
many raffle prizes and the
women at table 13 seemed to
win most of them. A separate
raffle was held for a lovely
watch donated by Liz Maggio
from Reflections in Gold.,
The delicious food pre-
pared by the staff at the Ven-
ide Yacht Club and spectacu-
lar decorations added the
right amount of sparkle to
make the luncheon and fash-
ion show pretty terrific.
Kudos to everyone involved
including the merchants who
provided prizes.

The current show at the
Venice Art Center runs
through Dec. 22.
Alberto Cruz judged the
various pieces at the abstract
exhibition. Lueanne Wood
sponsored the event and pre-
sented the awards. Congrat-
ulations to Fernando Madri-
dejos, Fran Henley, Carole
Vincent, Harvey Small, Helen
Pfeifle, March Lombard,
Herman Bek-gran, Eleanor
Merritt and Ruth Hook Colby.
Tomorrow night is the
Third Thursday Stroll in
downtown Venice:
Three cheers to Taylor
MacPhearson and Ann
Thompson for decorating
their boat with green and
white arid allowing all the
people who lined the Venice
shores a chance to see the
State Champion Venice Lady
Indians.

The special person of this
week is Luanne Wood. This
terrific lady generously sup-
ports many causes in town
including SPARCC, the Hu-
mane Society and animal res-
cue. Her name appears on
most programs under the
sponsorships. Luanne pro-
vides time and fluinds for the
arts and is on hand at many
events. Luanne \Wood is one of
the women \vwho helps make
Venice special.
