Venice man charged with raping daughter


It's the latest in a string of sex-related accusations
against Andrew M. Dropla, but it appears he's
never been prosecuted for any of them.


EDITOR'S NOTE: Due to the
nature of the acts alleged to have
been committed against the vic-
tim, reader discretion is advised.
BYTOMMYMCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

A Venice man has been
arrested in a sexual battery
case involving his 6-year-old
daughter.
"The child came forward


with the information," Venice
Police Detective Tom Matt-
muller said. "We investigated
with the assistance of the
Child Protection Team and
that investigation led to his
arrest."
Andrew NM. Dropla, 38, 900
block Inlet Circle Road, Ven-
ice, was arrested and charged
Dec. 15 at 6:45 a.m. with sex-
ual battery on a child under
12 years old.


According to the police
report, Mattmuller was notid-
fled by social workers that the
victim was
sexually bar-
tered during a
2003 %isit with
Dropla.
The child
stated that
Dropla told
her' to relax
and close her
eyes. She said Dropla
Dropla "put
toys inside her."
The child was able to,
describe the toys.
She said the act happened


while her brothers were
sleeping in the bedroom.
The child's mother told
investigators she and Dropla
separated in 2003 when
Dropla moved to Venice to
live with a girlfriend. She said
the children visited their:
father in the summer of 2003
for two weeks.
In 2003 and 2004, North
Carolina Social Services in-
vestigated allegations of sexu-
al abuse on the victim
because she was seen mas-
turbating and performing sex
acts with the younger brother.
However, the children did
not make any allegations,


against Dropla and therapy
was recommended for the
family.
On Dec. 12, the victim was
interviewed in Sarasota by a
forensic interviewer. The girl
was able to remember the
2003 trip to Florida with her
brother to visit Dropla and his
girlfriend.
The child said she and
Dropla kissed and that the
kisses were tongue to tongue.
Deviant history
The police report also
states that Dropla has a "de-
viant" sexual history.

Venice City Council ap-
,proved concept plans Tues-
day for a new fire station on
laurel Road, east of Interstate
75.
The planned 16,000-
square-foot facility would
replace the temporary Station
No. 3 that has been at Venice's
Eastside Wastewater Treat-
ment Plant. Assistant Chief
John Reed expects the facility,
costing nearly $4 million, to
be open by August 2007.
The need for a permanent


facility in North Venice con-
tinues to increase as develop-
ers work to build more than
7.000 homes on the eastern
side of 1-75 along Laurel and
Knights Trail roads. Plans for
shopping centers,'an expand-
ed employment center and
multi-screen movie theater
also are in the works.
"That part of town is really
taking off, so that permanent
facility will be a great asset,"
Reed said.

News from a study re-

showed that half the students

But that's only half the

Commission lacks consensus on I-75 speed limit


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


A recent news report about
possibly lowering the 70 mph
speed limit along Interstate-
75 through Sarasota County
has raised some eyebrows
among locally elected offi-
cials who don't have the
authority to order it, and don't
support the idea.


OUR TOWN SECTION


On Dec. 6, county com-
missioner Jon Thaxton asked
about a ,daily newspaper
headline that read: "County
wants to lower speed limit on
interstate" and initiated one
of those awkward discussions
that take place when nobody
wants to assume responsibili-
ty.
"When one or two county
commissioners say some-


thing it does not mean the
county," commissioner
Shannon Staub responded.
"This just stirs up a beehive.
There was no county com-
mission vote to try and lower
the speed limit on 1-75. I
would not have voted for it."
The 1-75 speed limit story
began to take on a life of its

A company in the Neth-
erlands is producing glow-in-
the-dark flowers.
Pretty neat novelties.
But to Tropical Bob, their
creation route doesn't lead to
the Holy Grail of horticulture.
They spray the flowers with a
chemical that causes the little
beauties to glow for a few
hours.
Sure, we could spray lawns,
as we do for bugs, but that's
not optimal.
What we need is to make
foliage and grasses more like
fireflies or electric eels. We
need to rearrange some flora
DNA strands and, bingo, we
have a yard that glows.
Then Tropical Bob can see
what Tropical Dog is doing

STAFF WRITER


Has the South Venice Vol-
unteer Fire Department out-
lived its usefulness?
That's a question posed to
Sarasota County commis-
sioners and one which they
are scheduled to discuss


Tuesday.
In a report to the board,
County Administrator John
Wesley White asks commis-
sioners if the time has come
to have the county's own fire
department take over the ser-
vices of the volunteer depart-'
ment.
"While volunteer fire ser-


vice is rich in tradition, to-
day's urban volunteer fire
departments are constantly
confronted with the increas-
ing challenges of unpre-
dictable and shrinking rev-.
enues, ever increasing calls
for service ..." White said in
his report.
He goes on to point out
growing challenges volunteer.
departments face with in-


creased and unexpected de-
mands.
The South Venice Volun-
teer Fire Department has
already faced a financial cri-
sis, triggered by diminishing
contributions. It turned to the
county for help in 1993. At
the time, the board created
a municipal service taxing
unit to help stabilize the
department's revenues.

MCC has no plans to offer bachelor's degree


Florida community colleges are trying to increase
the number of bachelor's degrees they offer,
but MCC prefers partnering over competing.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Manatee Community Col-
lege has no plans to offer
bachelor's degrees like some
community colleges in Flor-
ida, but that doesn't mean its
not willing to step in to fill a
void should the opportunity
present itself, MCC President
Dr. Sarah Pappas told trustees
at a recent meeting.
Pappas said the University
of South Florida is doing an
outstanding job of offering
degree programs in response:
to business and community
requests, and there is no need
for MCC to move in that di-
rection
"If a void was to present
1 itself, e might then consider
moving toward a bachelor's
degree, but we are not antic-
ipating, such a move at this
time," Pappas
said. "If the
University of
South Florida
Were to say
we do not
want to offer
(a prospec-
tive degree
program),
only then Pappas
would I con-
sider it."
USF has added about 15
new degree programs in re-
cent years, according to
Pappas.
A number of Florida com-
munity colleges currently
offer bachelor's programs.
Chipola College, Miami
Dade College, and Okaloosa-
Walton College offer limited
programs leading to a bache-
lor's degree. Others, like St.
Pgtepsgurg Community Col-
lge,1 have gone into. the field
aggressively. SPCC offered 13
i-degree degree as of 2003,
according to the Florida De-
partment of Education Web
site.
Edison Community College
announced Dec. 6 it will offer
a bachelor of applied science
degree in public safety man-
agement. Edison has a Char-
lotte County campus located
in Punta Gorda.
Seamless
Currently MCC offers no
bachelor's degrees. Instead,
MCC has formed partnerships
that work.
MCC's partnership with
USF is called "2+2" because it
ties a two-year associate's
degree program with two
more years of USF study
culminating in a bachelor's
degree. Some of the degree
programs can be taken al-


most- entirely on the MCC
Campus.
U1SF offers three bachelor's
programs from the Venice
campus presently, one each
in business, elementary edu-
cation and social sciences.
USF professors come to NICC
certain days of.the week to
provide upper level course-
work, allowing Venice and
North Port area students to
pursue much of their degree
in the community without
moving on to a universiNty
campus.
The current partnership is
designed to provide MCC
students with the seamless
transition to USF, although
some students have to travel
to cther MCC campuses to
attend certain classes. It's one
of the reasons MCC hasn't
entered the bachelor's fray.
"We have created a pretty
good relationship with USF.
We are not duplicating ser-
vices, which helps keep our
missions more focused," Ven-
ice Campus Executive Officer
Joan McGill said. "There just
isn't a need for MCC to get
involved (in a bachelor's de-
gree). Our focus can remain
on an associate degree pro-
gram and focus on workforce
needs."
Trends
Pappas was reviewing for
trustees the recently released
Division of Community Col-
leges and Workforce Educa-
tion strategic plan.
A workforce task force
recently came up with a list of
priorities for community col-
leges throughout Florida. The
top two goals are to ensure
open-door access and student
success, and enhance work-
force development programs.
Goal number three is to facili-
tate bachelor's access.
The task force is encourag-
ing community colleges to
offer bachelor's degrees.
To support an anticipated
increase in enrollment state-
wide of 300,000 students
(100,000 in full-time equiva-
lents) over the next 10 years,
community colleges are be-
ing encouraged to increase
the number of bachelor's
degrees annually conferred in
Florida by 10 percent,
According to a task force
report, 243 community col-
lege students earned bache-
lor's degrees last year through
Florida community colleges.'
That's expected to increase to
763 by 2006-07.
More than 28,000 commu-
nity college students were
enrolled in upper-division
courses last year, and the


schools are anticipating
69,000 by next year.
For the first time, the MCC
Venice campus Fall enroll-
ment figures showed the
number of, North Port stu-
dents exceeds those from
Venice.
Officials said of those en-
rolled, -189 students come,
from addresses with North'
Port -zip codes. Another 472
come from Venice, 245 from
Englewood, 178 from Porti
Charlotte, and 109 from!
Nokomis.
Total enrollment for 20051
is 2,005 (head count). It's the|
first time enrollment has ex-
ceeded 2,000, according to
McGill.
She cites North Port's
growth with the increase.,
Thomas Ranch construction
will offer residential housing
around the campus, an add-
ed attraction.
"I think it will bring a pop-
ulation nearer to the campus,
and should enable us to
expand into some of our
noncredit enrichment pro.-
grams, "like introduction to
computers, digital photog-
raphy, Spanish and other
courses," McGill said. "We
would certainly like to expand.
It's part of our mission."
Political activity policy
In other news the MCC
Board of Trustees updated a
number of policies at its No-
vember meeting.
. The board revised a long-
standing college rule that, for-
bids career service employees
from running for public office.
The political activity policy
was instituted in 1984 and
hadn't been revised since.
Trustees opted to revamp
the policy after a former fac-
ulty member ran for congress
last year. The policy was ex-
panded to explicitly include
teaching faculty.
New rules allow any MCC
employee to run for office.
but require the person to
advise his or her immediate
supervisor and the college
presi-dent in writing 10 days
prior to announcing his or
her candidacy or qualifying'
as a candidate, whichever
occurs first.
Candidates for office who
are employed by MCC are
required to review their plans
with school officialsto deter-
mine if requirements for con-
ducting the campaign or the
requirements'of the position,
if elected, will interfere with
the employee's college duties.
If it's determined running
for office will conflict or in-
.terfere with an employee's
school duties, the employee
must either resign or request
a leave of absence for a period
of time under existing leave
policies. The college president
would determine the length of

leave based on what is in the
best interest of the institution.
No shelter
MCC no longer has build-
ings designated as temporary
hurricane shelters, under a
new MCC policy., A prior
policy designated die Bra-
denton Campus and two
other buildings as temporary
shelters when required by
the American Red Cross. But
some of the buildings are
located in flood zones and


others no longer meet ARC
requirements.
The policy contained er-
roneous information, and
needed ;to come off the
books, said Pappas.
The new policy states

used,as a temporary emer-
gency shelter unless they'
have been designed using the
criteria for design of public
shelters as required after the
adoption of the State Re-
quirements for Educational


Facilities, 1999 edition as
amended.
MCC has no plans to des-
ignate any of the buildings as
temporary hurricane shelters
in the future, said Pappas.
"It's so expensive to reha-
bilitate a building (to meet,
shelter standards), and capi-
tal outlay dollars are looking
miserable," Pappas said. 'As
much as we would love to
meet those standards, it
doesn't seem financially
feasible."

Sarasota Area If you're like most
homebuyers, you have two primary
considerations in mind when you start
looking for a home. First, you want to find
the home that perfectly meets your needs
and desires, and secondly, you want to
purchase this home for the lowest possible
price.
When you analyze those successful
home buyers who have the experience to
purchase the home they want for thousands
of dollars below a seller's asking price, some
common denominators emerge. Negotiating
skills are important, but there are three
additional key factors that must come into
play long before you ever submit an offer.
This topic has been the subject of
extensive analysis by industry experts, and a
summary of their findings, and a specific
step-by-step


purchase plan for homebuyers, can be found
in a new special report called "Homebuyers:
How to Save Thousands of Dollars When
You Buy".
This free report outlines the psychology of
how a seller sets their asking price, and gives
you 3 simple steps to follow, before you even
set foot in a seller's home, which will ensure
you are able to successfully slash thousands
of dollars off the price of the home you
want.

Fire chief says county is one of safest


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER ,

The county's top firefighter
contradicts reports that fire-
fighters and citizens are at
risk because the department
is understaffed and under-:
resourced.
"Millions of dollars have
been spent in making certain
that the Sarasota County Fire
Department is outfitted with
the best apparatus and per-
sonal protection equipment
..." Chief Brian Gorski stated.
In a letter to Deputy Sara-
sota County Deputy Adminis-
trator Dave Bullock, Gorski
lays out more than 30 bullet


points about forward moves
the department has made
since 2000.
Among them are:
Replaced almost every
first-out fire engine, including
all reserve fire engines.
Obtained two new ladder
trucks, a new cascade and
support truck; two new tank-
ers.
Obtained new thermal
imagers for all fire apparatus.
There are now 22 TIs.
Obtained a new special
operations vehicle 'with the
best equipment at a cost of
more than $1 million.
Obtained a new fireboat
in September 2005.


Completely renovated
and opened Fire Station 18
(Myakka Valley) and Fire
Station 19 (Old Myakka).
In April, a third ambu-
lance was put into service, in
Venice.
In September 2005, the
purchase of 25 brand-new
ambulances with the latest
equipment was approved.
A third ladder truck will
be put into service at Fire
Station 5.
Replaced all self-con-
tained breathing apparatus
with the new Scott Next
Generation Breathing Appa-
ratus.
Implemented electronic


incident reporting for fire and
EMS.
Completely renovated
Fire Station 7, nearing com-
pletion of renovation of Fire
Station 6.
Replaced all fire gear,
including boots.
Also, the board of county
commissioners has approv-
ed more money for land
purchases for five addition-
'al fire stations, Gorski stat-
ed.
High suppression
The bullet points represent,
tens of millions of dollars in
upgrades during the past five
years; according to Gorski.


'"Additionally, we will be
replacing Engine 1, Engine 3
and Engine 21 in 2006," Gor-
ski said, "and when this oc-
curs, we will have completely
replaced our whole fire appa-
ratus fleet with new..."
Gorski said fire suppres-
sion in Sarasota County is
among the best in the indus-
try.
Fire suppression' is ex-
pressed in the number of
structure fires per 1,000 pro-
tected structures.
In fiscal year .2005, the
SCFD fire suppression rium-
ber was 1.75 structure fires
per 1,000.:
"The industry average was


6.16 structure fires per 1,000
structures," Gorski said. "Your
fire department is outstand-
ing, and we are able to
achieve this through our pub-
lic education efforts in pre-
venting fires before they
start."
Gorski said the county
operates 23 fire stations in the
Sarasota, Venice and Engle-
wood area.
The county has plans to
open up at least six more in
the next 10 years, Gorski
said.

Land purchase for boat ramp approved over neighbor objections

Just 23 days before the
completion of the purchase

to make the county aware of
concerns about hours of
operation, 'security, parking,
traffic control and preserva-
tion of wetlands and wildlife,
within the proposed park.
McCarthy last month had
told members of the Osprey
Revitalization Committee
that the purchase "was a great
buy.. The property contains
wetlands, coastal hammocks,
some wonderful old trees. It
offers us the opportunity to
preserve some open, green
land."
Earlier this week, the com-
mission concurred, voting
unanimously to give final
approval.
"Appraisals don't 'reflect
today's market value of water-
front property," said commis-
sioner Nora Patterson.
She disclosed that another
buyer was ready to buy the,
site for the same price the
county had paid.
"It's a good deal. We'd be
foolish not to buy," she added.
In addition to a boat ramp


with two lanes, there is space
at the center of the 11-acre
area to park about 100 boat
trailers. Picnic facilities will be
built at water's edge. More
than 1,300 feet of waterfront'
on the southeast side of the
site includes mangroves and
sea grasses.
McCarthy said that a grant
will be sought from Florida
Communities Trust to reduce
the cost to the county.
The county bought the
Property from Mary G. Young
and her husband, Don. Her
grandparents, Walter and
Eula Blackburn, were descen-
dants of one of the earliest
families to settle in Osprey.
STheir ownership of the
land went back to 1884. It was
part of a homestead that
extended from what is now
Oscar Scherer Park north to
Blackburn Point Road on
both sides of U.S. 41.
It extended west to the
Intracoastal Waterway from,
U.S. 41 along both sides of
Blackburn Point Road.

putting the final touches on
an agreement this weekwith a
national clearinghouse to
prvde better data, said Car-
,lene Judge, executive director
of research, assessment and
evaluation.
"We haven't had extensive
data on out-of-state stu-
dents," Judge said. "We're
joining the National Student
Clearinghouse so next year
we have good data."
Judge said some of the
county's high schools have
counseling departments that
track the information, but
most are unable to obtain the
necessary data.
Unknowns
Venice High, for example,
tracks students' post-high
school activity by the location
to which their transcripts are
sent. But that doesn't tellVHS
whether the students stayed
at the school or left, what they
studied or if they went on to
graduate.
"It has been difficult to get


CHARGED from Page lA
In the 1980s, Dropla was
accused of. molesting his
nieces who were between the
ages of 4 and 7.
The West Columbia Police
Department and the South
Carolina Law Enforcement
Division investigated. How-
ever, an agreement was made
between family members and
no charges were filed.
Dropla also is accused of
committing sexual battery on
a stepbrother between 1982-
1986. The victim told family
members, but law enforce-
ment was never notified.
In 1996, Dropla was arrest-
ed in North Carolina for first-
degree rape, but the charges
were dismissed because the
family believed the trial
would be traumatic to the vic-
tim.
In 1998, Dropla was also
suspected of exposing himself
to children on a school bus.

own when, at a Nov. 15 meet-
ing, commissioner David
Mills suggested people were
driving too fast, and the other
commissioners agreed to
request several years of crash
data for educational purpos-
es.
Commission chair Paul
Mercier framed the request
for county transportation offi-
cials when he said, "This isn't
about speed limits. It is about
traffic safety." .
Because the commission
has no authority to lower
speed limits, its only recourse
would be to submit a request.
'Driving crazy'
On Monday, Staub reiterat-
ed, "David Mills brought it up
under commission reports,"
which is a portion of the com-
mission's agenda that allows
an open discussion about any
subject. "He talked about
people driving crazy and said
we need to see what can be
done."
The 1-75 traffic situation
through Sarasota County is
magnified by the fact that
southbound motorists funnel
down from three to two lanes
at State Road 681, a situation
that will be remedied when
the roadway is widened by
the year 2010.
It is further complicated by
motorists who drive either at
or below the speed limit in the
left lane, and force others to
pass on the right. State law-
makers attempted to deal
with the issue last year, but


Gov. Jeb Bush vetoed the
issuance of warnings and
citations by the Florida
Highway Patrol.
Later this month, county
transportation officials are
tentatively scheduled to sub-
mit a report that includes 1-75
crash data and the apparent
causes for large wrecks that
tie up north-south traffic for
hours. The report could initi-
ate a future commission dis-
cussion.

Feedback report
Education Commissioner
John L. Winn unveiled the
Florida, High School Feed-
back Report last week. It pro-
vides, Florida's public high
schools with, information
about the performance of
their 2004 graduates, but only
for those who went on to
attend Florida colleges and
universities.
Some of the data on those


attending Florida community
colleges, say officials, show
the district has much room
for improvement.
College assessment scores,
in particular, paint a bleak
picture of college readiness.
A high percent of gradu-
ates statewide 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.,
Statewide, only 44.8 per-


cent of 2004 graduates who
attended a community col-
lege in Florida passed all
three core subjects. Sarasota
County's figure was 52.1 per-
cent. The assessments are
designed to test a student's
ability to handle college-level
course work.
Judge points out the Col-
lege Placement Tests are typi-
cally taken only by students
who didn't have acceptable
ACT and SAT scores. Many of
those with higher SATs and


ACITs went on to higher edu-
cation, many out-of-state.
On the bright side, the
report shows almost 80 per-
cent of Sarasota County grad-
uates enrolled at a postsec-,
ondary institution in Florida
(college or university) earned
a grade point average above
2.0.'
Sixty percent earned better
than a "C" on Freshman
Composition I or II; 84.2 per-
cent did as well on other col-
lege-level English courses.


Another 58 percent of Sara-
sota County students enroll-
ed in Intermediate Algebra
and 49.4 percent enrolled in
Advanced math courses
earned a "C" or better. .
Individualized for each
school, th6 DOE report is
intended to present a com-
prehensive profile of college
readiness based on gradu-
ates' performance 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.
"These reports will provide
high school administrators
and teachers with a valuable
tool for improving student
learning and achievement,"
saidWinn.

bays and two wings. There
will be a 50-person confer-
ence room, second-floor-
sleeping area and multi-pur-
pose room, and it will be a
"hardened" structure to with-
stand a hurricane.
The station would not be a
public hurricane shelter. In-
stead, it will protect city em-
ployees and emergency staff
who must stay in Venice dur-
ing a major storm event.
The exterior design will
blend the traditional look of a
firehouse with Venice's theme

Designers clarified that
the colors of the -digital ren-
derings came out wrong,
and the station will actually
be rust-colored -- a wel-
come relief to council mem-
ber Vicki Taylor.
"I do wish, we could get
away from the Venetian Beige
we're. seeing everywhere,"
Taylor said. "I'd like to see
more ofthe traditional Italian
colors." -
Station No. 3 will be on
Laurel Road just east of the
main entrance to Venetian
Golf & River Club.
The city was given the 4
acres of land by J&J Homes
back in January as part of a
settlement agreement with
the private property owner,


the city and the. Federal
Emergency Management
Agency over code violations
at the FEMA trailer park.
Venice currently has $1.9
million available for the sta-
tion, City Manager Marty
Black said during Tuesday's
meeting. Much of that money
came from Venetian Golf &
River Club impact fees and 1-
cent sales-tax revenue.
Other council news ,
Here's a summary of other
council actions from Tuesday
night's meeting:
Police contract By
unanimous vote, council
members approved the new
three-year contract for Venice
police officers. The contract is
retroactive to October 2004,
when the last agreement
expired. Police officers were
scheduled to receive their
retro-pay at their increased
salaries today.
Privatized building in-
spectors- Council approved
an interlocal agreement for
private code enforcement
officers to handle inspections
of Venetian Golf & River Club.
The city manager empha-
sized there will be no conflict
of interest in having the
homeowners directly pay the
,salaries of building inspectors
investigating their buildings


for irregularities.
Free' YMCA member-
ships Council approved
spending $19,000 so every
city employee can have a free
fitness club membership to
Venice YMCA. This is the sec-
ond year of a pilot program
designed to improve employ-
ee health and reduce work-
place-related injuries.
Charter Review Com-
mittee Council unani-
mously approved Mayor
Dean Calamaras' request to
form a. Charter Review,
Committee. Five city resi-
dents will be appointed to the
committee to investigate four
specific issues. The proposal
would consolidate power
within the city manager's
office, giving the city manager
the power to hire or fire the
finance director, fire chief and
police chief. Venice's current
city charter has all of those
department directors report-
ing to council meribers and
exempt from the city manag-;
er's control. Audits of man-
agers like the recent Matrix.
Report audit of the police
department also would
remain confidential, meaning
results would not have to be
revealed in public session.
The final charter review pro-
posal would eliminate the
requirement that a council


member who has served nine
consecutive years must sit
out for a year before running
for mayor, and vice versa for a
mayor running for a regular
council seat.
Downtown improve-
ments Council members
approved, in concept only, all
the staff recommendations
for improvements to down-
town Venice. This means that
traffic circulation will remain
the same along Tampa, Mi-
ami and Venice avenues; traf-
fic light and crosswalk im-
provements will be launched.
for the Harbor Drive-Venice
Avenue intersection: exces-
sive pavement at Venice
Avenue-Avenida des Parques
will be removed and replaced
with grass medians; outdated
downtown electrical service
will be upgraded: new down-
town benches and landscap-
ing will be phased in; and
crossing lights will be in-
stalled at mid-street cross-
walks. The total estimated
cost for these improvements
is $4.3 million, according to
Public Works Director Larry
Heath. Council also: rejected
a $1 million proposal to
redesign Centennial Park be-
cause only 43 new parking
spots would be created; post-
poned spending any money
on developing a public park-


ing garage: and decided to
leave downtown signage un-
changed; The city also specu-
lates that West Venice Avenue.
from U.S. 41 Business to
Venice Beach will have to be
replaced and resurfaced by
2009. ;
Water deposits -
Council approved new rules
to refund water deposits
more quickly to property
owners. However, all city rules
would remain unchanged
that require renters to pay
twice as much for a deposit
($250); allow the city to hold
onto their money for two
years; and require the deposit
go toward the customer's final
bill, rather than be refunded,
as it is for property owners.
Council does not plan on giv-
ing renters the same consid-
eration as property owners
because they're considered a


higher risk.
New city park rules -
Council members appeared
to agree with fellow member
John Simmonds, who said of
the proposed new park rules,
"I'm not sadsfied with this at
all. ... We overregulate every-
thing." Bicycles, in-line skates
and skateboards would have
been banned from several
-city parks, -and rules also
would have restricted when
frisbees and balls could be
thrown in parks. Each council
member will write up his or
her concerns; staff will review
them and then resubmit the
new ordinance for approval at
the Jan. 10 council meeting.
New vice mayor Fred
Hammett was elected by
council to be Venice's new
vice mayor, replacing John
Moore, who served during
2005.

Parents maintain accused son's innocence


They dispute all the aspects of a sexual battery
he's alleged to have committed against a fellow
student outside a popular sports pub.


BYSTEPHEN BAUMANN
ENGLEWOOD EDITOR

The parents of a Lemon
Bay High School student ac-
cused of rape are vigorously
defending their son, claiming
he is innocent of the charge.
Mike and Marie Gibson
said their son, Joshua, 17, had
been falsely accused by
another Lemon Bay student.
They say they were with their
son the night the alleged inci-
dent took place, and left an
Englewood sports pub with
him on the night in question.
The girl, who is under 18, is
not named in court docu-
ments. It also is the policy of
this newspaper not to name
the victims of alleged sexual
assaults.
Gibson is being held for 21,
days in a juvenile detention
center in Fort Myers. The Char-
lotte County Sheriff's Office
arrested him Dec. 7 on one
count of sexual assault and one
count of simple battery.
Prosecutors will decide in
the next few weeks whether
to formally charge Gibson,
according to his lawyer, Paul
Sullivan of Punta Gorda.

Linked?
Gibson, 7515 Ebro Road,
Englewood, was. a junior at
Lemon Bay and a member of
the varsity football team
when the incident took place.
He was arrested the day after
he was suspended from
school, after a classmate told
school officials Gibson. had
made inappropriate advanc-
es during class, according to
his parents.
School officials, citing con-
fidentiality, have refused
comment on the matter, oth-
:er than to say Gibson's status


as a student would be re-
viewed after the current legal
issues had been adjudicated.
The current sexual assault
case also comes a year after
Gibson was accused of sexu-
ally assaulting a girl when he
was a student
at Venice High
School. Gib-
son acknowl-
edged having
sexual rela-
tions with the
girl at that
time, but said
it was con-
sensual. Gibson
Prosecutors
did not bring charges against
him in that matter, but the girl
obtained a restraining order,
which forced Gibson to trans-
fer from Venice to Lemon Bay.
Gibson's parents maintain.
the matters are linked in the
sense that knowledge of the
earlier allegation prompted
the Englewood girl to retaliate
against their son.

Her story
In the recent case, the girl
told deputies she met Gibson
on the night of Oct. 8 when
she was out with family and
friends at The End Zone, 2411
McCall Road.
According to the sheriff's
office report, the girl said
Gibson approached her sev-
eral times during the evening,
asking her to be his girlfriend.
She declined, the report said,
saying she thought of him as
only a friend.
The girl told police that,
sometime after midnight she
walked Gibson to his truck
when he was leaving. When
they got there, the girl alleges,
Gibson opened the door,
grabbed her and began kiss-


ing her. When she told him to
stop, he allegedly pushed her
onto her back in the cab, tried
unsuccessfully to strip off her
clothing, and raped her,
He later told the girl not to
tell anyone and left the park-
ing lot, the report said. She
said she then went back in-
side the pub, went to the
bathroom and began crying.
She did not report the inci-
dent to police at the time. She
went to the sheriff's office on
Nov. 10, the day after the
alleged incident at the high
school. The girl' told police
she did not file a report right
away because she wasafraid
of retaliation, according to
the police report.

The parents speak
Gibson's parents requested
an interview Tuesday to pre-
sent 'their side of the 'story.
Joshua Gibson's attorney has
instructed him not to com-
ment.
Mike Gibson, who works
as a cement truck driver, said,
"My son never did this. My
son was at the restaurant with
us that night." i.
'All we want is the truth,"
he said. "We're not trying to
make our son out to be some-
thing he's not. Josh is a hum-
ble person."
The Gibsons said they and
their son went to The End
Zone sometime around 10
p.m. on Oct. 8, after a Pop
Warner football game. They
have been involved for many
years in the Pop Warner pro-
gram, and took in the games
that day and evening on the
county's ball fields on San.
Casa Drive.
The End Zone is a popular
gathering spot for the local
sports crowd, and many Pop
Warner families were there
that night, they shid.
"The place was packed.
Everybody and their kids were
there," Mike Gibson said.


The girl was there with her
mother and other friends,
and all were mingling at the
pub. Joshua Gibson, the girl
and other friends spent most
of the evening in the game
room playing pool.
The Gibsons say they left
together at around 12:30 a.m.
"Everybody knows we
were there, and everybody
knows he left with us that
night," Marie Gibson said.

Continued contact
The Gibsons said their
vehicle was parked next to
their son's Ford Ranger pick-
up in the lot in front of The
End Zone, which is in a shop-
ping center fronting on State
Road 776 (McCall Road).
They maintain the rape
could not have happened as it
was described.
There were other cars and
people outside the restau-
rant, they said.
"That place was packed.
and the parking lot was full of
kids," Marie Gibson said.
After leaving the restau-
rant, the parents got into their'
vehicle, Joshua Gibson got
into his, and they drove down
the road to shop at Wal-Mart,
the Gibsons said. Then, they
drove home.
Between that time and the
arrest, the Gibsons said,
Joshua Gibson and the girl
maintained contact after
school hours by phone mes-
sages and Internet messag-
ing. Joshua Gibson did not
erase the phone messages,
and they have been turned
over to his lawyer, Sullivan.
The girl also wanted to go
with Joshua Gibson and his
friends on a Halloween out-
ing to Busch Gardens, but
that didn't pan out, they said.
They believe the contin-
ued contact indicates the girl
was not traumatized by a
rape. "We knew she, had a
crush on him and didn't want


him to see other girls," Mike
Gibson said.

Never alone
Sullivan provided some of
the phone messages to the
Sun. He said Wednesday, "She
continued to maintain
friendly contact with Mr.
Gibson for weeks after she
claims he raped her."
Regarding the alleged inci-
dent at Lemon Bay, the par-
ents said the girl maintained
Joshua Gibson inappropriate-
ly touched her repeatedly.
They claim this has not been
confirmed by other students
in the class.
He was brought into the
school office, questioned,
then suspended and charged
with misdemeanor battery by
the sheriff's office, they said.


The rape allegation was filed
with police the following day.
The Gibsons said that the
incident in Venice, which
prompted them to move back
to Englewood so that their
son could attend Lemon Bay,
taught them to be wary.
"We never let him be alone
since that first thing hap-
pened in Venice," Marie Gib-
son said. "He was 'always with
someone."
"He's a good kid. He doesn't
get into'trouble," Mike Gibson
said. "He either plays football,
baseball or goes to the races."
In the next few weeks,
prosecutors will decide
whether to charge Gibson for-
mally, and whether he would
be charged as an adult or a
juvenile, said Sullivan, his
lawyer.

Plans for State Road 681 take big step forward


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Another piece of the State
Road 681 puzzle was filled in
Wednesday when the Sara-
sota Board of County. Com-
missioners adopted a resolu-
tion to authorize an access
management plan.
Its 5-0 vote will improve
access to the roadway for the
755 property owners in Sor-
rento East and developing
properties along both sides of
the road.
An underused road, ac-
cording to the county and the
Florida Department of Trans-
portation, S.R. 681 under the
plan will spark the beginning
of a much-needed grid sys-
tem when it is linked with the
proposed Honore Avenue
Extension.
The access management
Plan has been under discus-
sion by the county and FDOT
since 1997, according to the
state agency. It calls' for the
installation of three traffic
lights interconnected and
coordinated to maintain a
steady flow of traffic along the
4.5-mile length of 681, and
spaced about 5,000 feet apart.
Thomas C. Polk, policy and
project manager of the coun-
ty public works department,
"told the commissioners in
Wednesday's hearing at the
countyiadmrninistradon center
in South Venice that six right-
turn openings wil be in-
stalled with deceleration
lanes, also to spur steady traf-
fic. The spacing of the lights
and turns, he said, is about
twice the length of those on
University Parkway in the
northern part of the county,
when asked for a comparison.
In 2003, the latest year for
which there are statistics,
about 1.200 vehicles used 681
at peak hours. The road,
which has four lanes, could
--handle-about6,000 -vehicles at
these-hours, according to the
county's transportation plan-
ning office.
The passage last year by
the state Legislature of a
growth management bill
aimed at reducing sprawl and
traffic congestion in high-
growth areas. It also encour-
aged the counties to develop
underused land that had
already been paid for.
That and the county plan
to extend Honore Avenue to a
third north-south road from
Venice to the Manatee County
line prompted turning 681
into a controlled-access road.
It has been a limited-access
road.
Endorsed
Endorsements of the reso-
lution were submitted by the
Osprey Civic Association, the
Council of Neighborhood
Association's, Sorrento East
Property Owners Association,
Nokomis Area Civic Associ-
ation and the Southwest
County Alliance of Home-
owners Association in Engle-
wood.
Describing the area of
about 2,000 acres between I-
75 and U.S. 41 as a "remnant
waiting, for development,"
Henry Rodriguez told the
commissioners that he had
purchased 220 acres last sum-
mer on which he plans to
develop a shopping and resi-
dential village modeled on his
$220 million Bay Street Village
and Park in Osprey
With 1,800 condominiums
and townhouses and about
350,000 square feet of retail


space planned, the 681 prop-
erty would be more than five
times the size of the Osprey
property. That will include a
village green, six restaurants,
the 25,000-square-foot Os-
prey public library, about 60


stores and professional
offices, 532 condominiums
and townhouses. They will be
connected by narrow streets
and wide sidewalks.
Described as examples of
"new urbanism," both pro-


jects will have the feeling of
downtown America in the
1920s, according to Rod-
riguez.
"Nothing is more environ-
mentally sound than to use.
an underutilized existing


road rather than to build one
somewhere else," he said.
'After setting aside 1,401 acres
of environmentally protected
lands in perpetuity in this
corridor, 693 acres can still be
developed. FDOT's plan ben-


efits our economy, provides
infill development west of I-
75 and in the Urban Service
District on an 'A' standard
road an unbeatable com-
bination of access manage-
ment and mobility."

OUR VIEW




Use the next six months to get ready


O ur state and national hurricane policy
seems to follow the wrong American
medical model.
Instead of preventing illness, we tend. to
spend our money on trying to cure sick
patients. Individuals after undergoing
costly surgery and after taking medicines
with serious side effects do survive. .
. There is second medical model, one that
involves prevention. The Salk vaccine virtually
eliminated polio, and now there is the measles
vaccine, as well as smallpox inoculations.
Our politicians are presently debating
whether to spend huge amounts of taxpayer
money to rebuild New Orleans, as well as
homes and cities in Mississippi, Alabama
and Florida.
It seems so much easier to find the funds


needed to repair the devastation after a storm,
even when the cost soars into the tens of bil-
lions of dollars, than to prevent it at far less cosL
As is the case with tornadoes, the worst
damage is often done to mobile homes -
and yet trailers are still being distributed as
replacement living quarters for those who
have lost houses in a hurricane.
' We know New Orleans could be protected
from Category 5 storms. The Netherlands has
created a dike system that keeps the stormy
Atlantic out of much of that small, below-
sea-level nation, and successfully prevents
flooding. But Holland has little choice, it has
so little land to build on.
During the 2006 hurricane season more of
Florida can be protected from destruction.
Homes can be reinforced and roofs tied


down pow. Shutters can be provided.
Relatively comfortable, regional multi-
purpose shelters also could be constructed
to save lives. And Florida, with federal help,
also can create better evacuation routes. All it
takes is money spending before storms
hit, not after.
Insurance companies also are spending
billions, but seem to be doing very little to
encourage (or force) families to protect their
home and property.
When there is a health crisis in America all
of the nation's experts are called in to discuss
solutions. A statewide or even national con-
ference, followed by the creation of a task
force with funds and power to act, could be a
step toward protecting our citizens.
Today's approach of putting out pam-


phlets and press releases is about as effective
as putting carefully worded health warnings
on the back of cigarette packs an act that
has proven to be almost totally ineffective.
One way to effectively change behavior is to
encourage the schools to get the message out to
our children. It wasn't that many years ago that
it was common for intelligent adults to toss
empty cans and food wrappers out the window
of cars. When our children were taught this was
wrong, youngsters would often chide their par-
ents until the practice stopped.
If a 7- or 8-year-old frequently asks -
"Daddy, is our home hurricane-safe?When are
you going to do something, Daddy?" more
might begin strengthening their homes. Once a
few do it, others in the neighborhood could
catch on.


Questions that


demand some


deep thought


LORRAINE COCCARO
COLUMNIST


SAW pro-growth 'progressive
came to Sarasota last week
asking the question: "Will we
grow together or grow apart?"
At the most recent Forum
2005 talk, Gene Sperling, for-
mer national economic advi-
sor to President Bill Clinton,
spent the evening answering
that question.
He referred to his book,
"The Pro-Growth Progressive:
An Economic Strategy for
Shared Prosperity," explain-
ing that his question, Will we
grow together or grow apart?",
was proposed as an inaugural
theme.
"It was an update of
Benjamin Franklin's warning
to fellow revolutionaries that
'we will hang together or hang
separately,' that we must have
shared growth if we are to.
remain a nation with enough
economic room for anyone
willing to work hard to suc-
ceed."
Sperling explained that if
we believe in economic digni-
ty for those who take respon-
sibility for their lives, believe
in the dignity of work, upward
mobility, shared prosperity,
no child hampered by birth -
if we believe in all of these -
we may need more govern-
ment, not less, to foster our
values.
He sees growth not just for
a couple of percent of the
people, but all. The middle
class must become a stronger,
more inclusive middle class
not a hollowed-out vestige.
Competition from Asia's
huge work force raises signifi-
cant risks for our middle class
because of outsourcing. Now,
Asia's growth in technology
raises additional risks to our
educated middle class.
Twenty-five percent of radiol-
ogists' work is now out-
sourced and Bangalore has a
better broadband than we do.
India, no longer satisfied
with 'low-level technology
jobs, is racing to innovate.
China has overtaken the
United States as the world's
largest exporter of a broad
category of electronic goods
and is doubling government
scientific research.
But we have reduced gov-
ernment-sponsored research.
Less innovation will bring


fewer jobs.
There is a fear of falling out
of the middle class. For some-
one in the middle class, losing
a job often means a 40-per-
cent loss of income, not a 10-
to 15-percent loss. That
means snow shoveling
instead of a college-educated
job. What a waste to our econ-
omy and society.
Sperling believes we must
show a commitment to fight
for jobs by helping people
before they lose their job. "We
*"had a pre-emptive.-1olicy in
Iraq, why not here?" he asked.
Why not have a $15,000
education account for use in a
decade? Look at how the mid-
dle class and our economy
bloomed with the affects of
the G.I. Bill after World War II.
That is a perfect example of a
progressive bill.
Why not make up half the
salary difference for the
-unemployed? Why not help
with the mortgage? We cer-.
tainly seem to help bankrupt:
companies.
Why not have matching
savings accounts? About 50
percent of our population has
no pension and 55 percent
has less than $10,000 in sav-
ings. They are at great risk..
Our goal should be to pro-
tect the economic dignity of
our people. It would be a
compact that hard work
means something. "No Amer-
ican who works full time
should have to raise her child
in poverty," Sperling said.
In that vein, Sperling advo-,
cates tax reform. Now we help
the 5 percent in the top tax
bracket keep and invest more
of their wealth, with their SEP
accounts, IRAs, pensions,
deductions, capital gains, div-
idends and on and on.
On the other hand, the Al-
ternative Minimum Tax, origi-
nally meant to make the high-
est income brackets pay their
fair share by limiting deduc-
tions, now exacerbates the
burden on the middle class.
Sperling's progressive ideas
aim to develop government
services to protect our people
from risk. Social Security has
done this in the past. We need
that floor to be preserved. We
also need a floor for health
care and education.
We also need to nourish
the dream to try new things,
to feel safe enough to risk. Our
entrepreneurial spirit is evi-
dent in small businesses
throughout the country. They
have created more jobs than
large corporations have.
Finally, we need a fiscally
sound policy to enable us to
deal with the next crisis, be it
another hurricane, earth-
quake, bird flu or something

was asked to present a children's program on Hanukkah at the
library. I contacted the director of our school, Pauline White,
and we began gathering.material.
However, the library, canceled our -program because the
library board felt it was religious in nature..
Hanukkah is not a Jewish Christmas substitute, but the cel-
ebration of winning a battle for religious freedom against the
Syrian Eniperor Antiochus and his army who sought to destroy
Judaism by making its observance a capital offense.
We regret we could not make this presentation for the chil-
dren. However, there are other opportunities to learn about
Hanukkah:
At the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Venice,
Hanukkah will be discussed on Monday, Dec. 19. Call UUCOV
for details.
Beginning the evening of Dec. 25 and lasting for eight
nights, members of the JCC will be featuring a living Menorah
to commemorate the celebration of Hanukkah. Each night at
sunset at the Gazebo in the center ofVenice, there will be a can-
dle lighting service, some refreshments and games and treats
for the children. Join us and have fui celebrating.
We look forward to having you join us to learn about
Hanukkah, and to be part of our community celebrations.
We apologize for any inconvenience to you if you attempted
to attend the event at the library.
Have a delightful and joyful holiday season!

Nothing better

Editor:
How ridiculous is it when
an Eagle Scout project of
replacing a dilapidated fence
becomes a major issue for the
Architectural Review Board?
What is next, building per-
mits for the sand castles the
preschool children build in
their sandbox?
It appears we have a build-
ing, department with too
many employees with too lit-
tle of consequence to do.
Why not concentrate on
some real concerns, such as
the Verizon Building and

avenues, which is an eyesore
for the whole street and has


been for years?

Singing the praises
of the VHS chorus
Editor:
I am writing, as I have
heard and seen many upset-
ting things about Venice High.
Other than sports, you don't
hear much good.
I have to tell you, I found
"wonderful."
I have had the pleasure this
month to attend the Venice
High Chorus Christmas
Concert at the high school,
and for the first time, I attend-
ed the Madrigal Dinner they
perform on the island. It is
something everyone should


plan on attending at least
once.
The thing that stands out
to me is seeing former (gradu-
ated) students coming to the
concert at the school and get-
ting up on stage to sing. If that
weren't enough, there were
more. than half a dozen of
these former students at the
Madrigal Dinner.
These kids, finally out of
high school, getting on with
their own lives, paid for a tick-
et to attend this dinner. Here
too, at the end of the perfor-
mance, they got up and
joined the current chorus in
song.
This to me is a testament of
what a wonderful relation-
ship the choral director, Mr.
Johns, has with his students.
Personally, I have never seen*
anything like it.
Because of this, he brings
out the absolute best in all of
these teenagers. You would be
hard pressed to find better
anywhere.
As a former chorus stu-
dent, I have to thank Mr.
Johns and all of his students
for a wonderful performance
and beautiful music.

Why the change of heart?


BY JOE BROWER
COLUMNIST


Over the last couple of
weeks, the gloves appear to
have come off in Washington,
D.C., in the increasingly stri-
dent debate over U.S. policy
and military actions in Iraq.
Unfortunately for Demo-
crats who are looking toward
next year's elections, as well
as a few with presidential
aspirations in 2008, the muz-
Ozles have also been removed
from some high-profile
Democrats that their fellows
probably wish had stayed
firmly in place.
Leading the charge is DNC
Chair Howard Dean, who,
contrary to his statements of
seeing the mission through
during the 2004 Democratic
primaries, stated recently
that, "The idea that we're
going to win the war in Iraq is
an idea which is just plain
wrong."
At least he didn't mention
the word "quagmire" this time
around. Although Dean's staff
was quick to attempt to spin
these words as. something
other than defeatism, their
meaning was quite clear.
Not to be outdone, Con-
gressman John Murtha has
recently commented that our
military is currently "broken"
and "living hand to mouth."'
That's certainly not the story
being heard from the men
and women who are actually
over there fighting, but unfor-
tunately, those brave folks
don't seem to get much air-
time. It's almost as if MuNrtha,
a decorated veteran himself,
has forgotten what it means
to be in a war.
The same goes for past
presidential hopeful John
Kerry, who on CBS's "Face the
Nation" talk show recently
was basically calling our
brave troops "terrorists."
House minority leader Nancy
Pelosi'is currently calling for

People on Colonia want water now


We want our water. Why am I upset? I just read the paper
about the water project in Nokomis. I see that Bay Point and
Shore Road are getting waterlines first. So the rich people on
the west side of 41 get the waterlines first. What happened to
the poor people off Colonia Lane? We were used to showcase
the need for these waterlines and now we have to wait again.
Where's our waterlines? I went to every meeting the county
held. The work was to have started in 2005 and there is no sign
of it. Why are Shore Road and Bay Point getting water first? Is it
to appease the developers building the million-dollar condo-
miniums fronting 41 on Dona Bay? What changed? This was
supposed to help us poor people on the east side of 41. You
know, us poor people around Colonia Lane from Venice to
Laurel Road on the east side of the highway, not the west side
- the ones all crowded together. We are one of the oldest areas
of the county we want decent water now.

Tom Freeland, left, and Gary Olson are the owners of Ye Old Miner's Pasty Shop at State
Road 776 and Wentworth Street. Both are longtime former Outback restaurant managers
who got tired of 12-hour days and never having a day off. Freeland, formerly of the
Venice Outback, said, "This last spring I spent the first Valentine's Day with my family in
29 years it was a real treat!"


Two stores for women opening soon


ROGER BUTTON
BUSINESS!

Opening in the South Bay
Shopping Center next week is
Ladies Workout Express,
1262 South Tamiami Trail,
Osprey. The 15,000-square-
foot ladies gym will operate
from 6:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. most
days and be closed Sundays.
Former NBC and MSNBC
TV producer and personal
trainer Renee Amro-Wan has
been meeting clients for this
supportive, one-on-one fe-
male-designed and -size fa-
cility.
"It's for all woman over 13,
offering circuit training in a
30-minute workout for the
whole body, using dual hy-
draulic machines," stated
Amro-Wan.
Also offered are fitness
evaluation, nutrition coun-
seling, toning and weight-loss
classes.
Amro-Wan, originally from
New Jersey, lived in Boynton
Beach with husband Chris-
topher until moving recently
to Osprey to. open this fran-
chised store.
Lady of America began in
1984 and has 1,000 women's'
workout centers worldwide,
and a total of 15,000 female-
only centers in America.
New store for girl skaters
A new store for girl skaters


and surfboarders opens this
week. V-Town 1+1/2 Surf &
Skate, 101W.VeniceAve. Suite
8, is just three doors from the
original store at Suite 15.
"Because a lot of girls have
asked us for shoes, clothes,
watches and accessories, we
are expanding with a store
dedicated to them," said Jeff
Heck, manager.
Five years ago V-Town Surf
& Skate was opened in the
plaza at Miami and U.S. 41 by
owner Tracey Howard, de-
signed to have everything for
skateboarding and surfing
enthusiasts. A manager and
assistant have been hired for
the new store, which' offers
the latest name-brand de-
signs in shirts, skirts, dresses
and bathing suits for girls.
Getting an insider's view
Lawmakers went to the
hospital this week to work
alongside physicians in Sara-
sota Memorial Hospital's first
Legislative University.
Representatives from the
Florida Legislature spent three
hours learning the urgent chal-
lenges the hospital faces as the
region's health-care safety net
They were given an insider's
look at neonatal intensive care
and emergency medicine ser-
vices.
Attendees included Sen.
Mike Bennett and Reps. Don-
na Clarke, Nancy Detert, Mi-
chael Grant and Ron Reagan.
Big bucks
Following up on my note
about Venice East Golf Club,
it seems that shareholders
could be in for big bucks if the
vote in early January is to sell
the course.
Based upon calculations,
and after expenses, propri-


etary certificate holders
would receive $42,871 each.
They, together with col-
leagues and visitors enjoy the
least expensive golfing in
Venice, according to Club
President Frank Mack, and
this will continue into the
foreseeable future even if the
vote is to sell.
Demand outstrips supply ,
As a result of the unprece-
dented demand by members
for lock boxes to secure prop-
erties for sale, the VeniceArea
Board of Realtors last week
ran out for the first time.
"Typically we have 875
available. Yes, we did run out
two weeks ago but we have
reordered twice and replen-
ished with a further 300," said
VABR President Brian Meurs.
Cleopatra's downtown
tomorrow
If you're strolling down-
town Saturday morning on
Miami or Venice avenue, you
should watch out for Cleo-
patra, dressed and wearing
delightful bath and body
products from her new store,
Cleopatra's at 225 W. Miami
Ave., Suite 3, Venice.
Body shop owner Irene
Eremert, originally a profes-
sional hairdresser in Ger-
many, came to Venice from
Akron, Ohio, a few months
ago and while sitting in the
Beachcomber Hotel decided
she wanted to open a store.
After researching exclusive
lines from Israel, France, Cal-
ifornia and New York, she
realized there would be no
better promotion for her store
and products than by using a
beautiful woman, Cleopatra,
to meet shoppers on Miami
and Venice avenues.


It's going to be a terrific
year at Tri County Air Con-
ditioning & Heating Inc., ac-
cording to Kay Mannke, di-
rector of marketing. Major
expansion, state-of-the-art
computerization and a new
promotional logo and image
will all come online in 2006.
In 1977 Bill Swanson Sr.
opened a small shop on Co-
Ionia Lane, Nokomis, to in-
stall, repair and offer mainte-
nance for air conditioning.
Ten years later his son Bill Jr.,
a University of Florida ma-
chinery engineering gradu-
ate, joined his father.
The company outgrew the
premises and in 1996 made
the big move to its 18,000-
square-foot premises at 1080
Enterprise Court, off Knights
Trail Road.
Ten years on and expan-
sion is again necessary, so the
company will break ground in
January on a 3-acre, $1.2 mil-
lion extension. The new
20,000-square-foot building
will house a state-of-the-art

DayStar is owned by Sun

pany.
DayStar serves hundreds
of business customers in 31
industry segments in Char-
lotte and Sarasota counties.
Its business product line
includes local and long-dis-
tance service, DSL, wireless
Internet service, dial-up In-

According to Al Sanders,
president of DayStar, "In the
last eight months we've in-


to add a state-ot-me-art cen-
tral office, wireless network-
enhancements and customer

tributing to more reliable ser-
vice, faster data speeds and a
broader set of business fea-
tures and capabilities. Not-
able among the new business
features are StarTrex, a Cen-
tral Office-based, PBX-like
service and VoIP (Voice over

Also, the network improve-
ments will allow DayStar to
extend its business DSL ser-
vice about a half mile farther
from its central office than it
can today. This will allow
DayStar to reach some busi-

"And existing DayStar cus-

along to the current customer

The new central office
equipment, called Soft-

The replacement of exist-

DayStar and will require
extensive coordination and

customers will be notified of
their scheduled installation
via bill inserts, the DayStar
Web site (daystar.net) and
phone calls.
"Customers do not need to
contact us, nor will this new
equipment result in any billing

The Venice volleyball victory tour rolls on


Lady Indians toasted by Kiwanis
after winning state championship.


BYCLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

The hard part is over.
Brian Wheatley, his assis-
tant coaches and the players
on the Venice High volleyball
team will tell you how tough
it was to win a state title.
Now comes the celebrat-
ing.
The Lady Indians, who
claimed FHSAA : Class 5A
supremacy last month in
Lakeland, are now on their
victory tour, so to speak.
The team was on a float in
the Venice Holiday parade.
The players and coaches ap-
peared in the Venice Boat
Parade.
Now the service clubs are
paying their respects.
On Wednesday, Venice Ki-
wanis invited coach Wheat-
ley and the lone senior on
the team Dana Dumas -
to speak at its weekly lun-
cheon at Buffalo Bill's in the
Holiday Inn.
Wheatley was introduced
by Kiwanis member Ray
Miller, whose daughter Amy
played on the lastVHS volley-
ball team to win a state cham-
pionship in 1998.
"Amy was one of the main
players on that team,"
Wheatley said. "She was a
pioneer on what it takes to
play Venice volleyball."
And what is Venice's edge,
it's secret to success?
"It's one thing. That. one
thing is different for all of
us," Wheatley said. "It's what
motivates us."
For Dumas, the 6-foot, 1-
inch middle hitter who was
named first team All State
and Class 5A Player of the
Year, it all came together in
the Tampa Prep Tourn-
,ament.
"We had played in a tour-
nament the week before
and didn't play that well," she
said. "We only won one game.
The next week we went back
up to Tampa and played well.


We finished second. We start-
ed to believe in ourselves."
The experience gained
from having played in the
state final in 2004 also went
a long way.
V Yenice had to settle for
second in the state after los-
ing to Fort Lauderdale-St.
Thomas Aquinas in five gruel-
ing games.
"I looked up to last year's
seniors," said Dumas, talking
about the likes of Lisa Hough,
Danielle Durham, Diondra

After coming up just short
in 2004, Wheatley didn't
know what to think about
this year's squad. He did
know they would be young.
"This year's ex-pectations
weren't as high," said Wheat-
ley, who said he gets a lot of
motivation from reading bas-
ketball coach Pat Riley's
books. "In the beginning, we
were mediocre. They got
better as the season went
along. A team is as good as it
thinks it is. Before the region-
al tourney, we had the kids
thinking they .were really
good."
Venice upset No. 1-ranked
Tampa-Plant in the region
semifinal and then defeated
Clearwater in the region final.
It was then off to The Lake-
land Center, where the Lady
Indians downed West Boca
in the state semifinal and
Tallahassee-Chiles in the
state final.

Holiday stress






frazzles folks


At a time of year when they're expected to be all
smiles, some people feel more Grinch-like.


BY ELLA NAYOR
STAFF WRITER

The' symptoms: "Ho ho" is
becoming "oh, no." "Jingle
Bells" jangles your last nerve.
The condition: Holiday
stress.
The cure: Planning and en-
joying the simpler joys of the
holidays.

HOLIDAY STRESS
BUSTERS:
* Take time to sleep.
* Budget yourself time for
relaxing.
* Be realistic with how much
time you will spend shopping.
- Enjoy more of the spiritual
side of the holidays.
* Avoid discussing longstand-
ing family problems with rela-
tives.
* If spending the holidays
alone, do something enjoy-
able like going to Midnight
Mass.
* Reach out if problems seem
overwhelming

Services Inc.


While retail stores blare
holiday tunes to get shoppers
in the buying spirit, some
folks may already be coming
unraveled with the approach
of the holidays. Shopping,


entertaining, overspending
and traveling all contribute to
the feeling that the holidays
are the most overwhelming
time of the year.
But it doesn't have to be
that way, mental health
experts say. Taking a few mea-
sures now can make the holi-
days much more enjoyable.
Bearing the brunt
Meeting expectations for
having die perfect Christmnas
can be hard on anyone, but
women tend to shoulder the
brunt the most, according to
Dr. Jerry Ross.
"They set out t6 do too
much and end up feeling
harassed," he said.
Ross said, women seem to
wind up doing the majority of
holiday preparation, includ-
ing cooking, decorating, buy-
ing gifts and shopping.
Cheryl Fischer and her sis-
ter Linda Altvater spent early
Thursday afternoon shop-
ping for gifts at die Port
Charlotte Town Center mall.
While they're getting things
-done in plenty of time for
Christmas, they still find
preparing for the holidays
stressful.
"Deciding what to get is
the most stressful," said
Fischer. '"It's not necessarily
the stores.."
Altvater said the stress of
having to do most of the work


in the family makes it espe-
cially hard.
"Our husbands don't do it,"
she said. "Women don't get
holidays."
LeeAnn Burch worries
about checking off everyone
on her lengthy gift list.
"There's so many people to
buy for," Burch, 35, said.
The petire blond woman
said that there are more peo-
ple to consider for presents
than in past years as she sur-
veyed a board game at a kiosk
in dithe mall.

MORE STRESS-BUSTING
* Delegate others can be
surprisingly helpful.
- Browse catalogs for gift ideas
while watching TV.
- Perform random acts of kind-
ness
- Take a day off work and shop
on a weekday.
* Go for a walk.
* Swap baby-sitting duties
with a friend or relative.
* Plan fun activities. Eliminate
things you get caught up
doing that have become
chores.
Plan easy meals (double up
your next baked ziti!).
Laugh.
Go to lunch with someone
you like.
Help others deal with their
stress by giving gift cards for
services like car washing,
facials, massages or restau-
rants.
Keep it simple.


The woman in the photo illustration exhibits signs of holiday stress. Women tend to suffer
more pressure from preparing for the holiday season.


But she said some of the
stress could be alleviated if
she simply had less work to
do.
"I do all of the holiday dec-
orating." Burch said.
She also does most of the
shopping for the children as
well. Burch said more help
from partners would de-
crease some of die stress.
Few worries for men
In comparison to women,
the other half seems to fare
better during the holiday sea-
son.
"I am half-way done," said
Steve Ferracci with a tri-
umphant grin.
Ferracci, 52, also spent
some time Thursday finding
gifts for loved ones. at the
mall.
He gripped at his satchel of
wrapped gifts and ,cited his
good attitude as a way to cut
down on holiday stress.
"I think if you get into the
spirit of Christmas it's OK," he
said.


The only thing that stresses
Ferracci out is wrapping pre-
sents. But a trip to the wrap-
ping counter at the mall elim-
inated that concern.
And for some male shop-
pers the deeper meaning
behind dle holiday helps
keep the 'stress to a mini-
mum.
"My personal philosophy
is it's not about die shop-
ping," said John Emdin.
Spirit of the holidays
Perhaps the greatest.stress
reducer is not straying too far
from die deeper meaning of
Christmas, Ross said.
"It's supposed to be peace-
ful," he said. "People put pres-
sure on themselves. They
wind up missing a lot of the
holiday tine."
Ross encourages people
who feel obliged to indulge in
the worldly parts of the holi-
day season to try to pace
themselves and take time to
relax. And for those who can-,
riot afford the fancy outer


trappings of the holiday sea-
son, Ross said, less materialis-
tic gifts can be easily substi-
tuted.
"Give them something
from the heart," she said.
For those who feel the
strain to give a Santa holiday
for the kids, many social ser-
vice agencies are sponsoring
programs such as Toys for
Tots.
He also said those who are
facing the holidays alone -'
often a difficult time for many
- should try not to focus on
being by themselves. Instead
he suggested doing some-
thing they have enjoyed on
their own, such as going to
Midnight Mass.
And for those who are
stressed out by squabbling
family members, the holidays
are not the tine to fix long
embedded strife, he said.

Bargain lodging can be found in Venice


STORY BYJJ. ANDREWS ASSISTANT EDITOR

Within 5 miles of downtown Venice there
are at least eight motels with modest
rates for the holidays.


No way was this Christmas
going to be a replay of last
Christmas.
To make sure, I had to find
a good deal on a motel in
Venice during Christmas
week. Was it possible to find a
motel with room for four
adults that was clean, well-
located and, most important
of all, available for less than
$100 per night.
The answer is "Yes," al-
though it took some looking.
Christmas 2004 in Ohio
was memorable for all the
wrong reasons.
I flew to Central Ohio for a
good old-fashioned.. Christ-
mas with my family. Instead
of turkey and all the trim-
mings I got snow, ice, sub-
zero temperatures, no elec-
tricity and truck-stop deli
sandwiches with soup heated
over a kerosene heater.
When people ask me why
I'll never visit Ohio during the
winter, Christmas 2004 is all
the reason I need. The area
was slammed with an ice,
storm that knocked out
power throughout much of
the area. The storm coincided
with my arrival at the airport.
my first trip home in two
years.
'The power, heat and water
was out the entire week of my
visit.
..."Ijlove you guys, but next
year let's have Christmas in
Venice it's paradise and I'll
get the hotel as my present to
you," I said right before flying
home to where I can wear
shorts in December.
A little more than a month
ago, Mom called to say they'd
be here Christmnas day.
Uh-oh.
How in the world am I
going to pay for a hotel room
for four adults during Christ-
mas week for three nights?
So I set off in search of
every hotel within a 5-mile
radius of Historic Downitown
Venice that offered a mini-
mum of two double beds for
$100 or less per night.
People at work laughed at
me, but as it turns out, there


are quite a few options out !| l
there. And from what several
hotel managers told me, it
might not be too late to book
a room for your out-of-town *
brother rather than putting
him on the pull-out sofa'in
your living room.
And when I finally picked
the hotel, the most common
response from friends was, "
"The Kon Tiki Motel is still
open?".
Yes it is, and I think my M
family will love it.
Motivation No. 2
There was plenty of.moti-
vation to find a place. First off,
there is no way I could I
squeeze Mom, Dad, brother
and sister in my tiny one-bed-
room apartment on the
island. '
I love them, but we'd need
a serious Dr. Phil Moment
being that close to one anoth-
er for four consecutive days.
The second reason push-
ing me along was last year.
Flying home in 2004, I wasn't
aware of any of this, however,
because I was busy having my
flight delayed and rerouted. I
eventually wound up being
stranded in Detroit overnight
after sitting on the runway for
two hours waiting to take off.
Detroit was very cold and
nearly every person on board Alex Gahl
was dressed for Florida. Alof .. ..

ensive hotels, all the


prices quoted were the same
or cheaper than on the In-
ternet hotel sites.
See the information box
for the details but I found
rates as low as $50 per night
for a room with two double
beds within 5 miles of down-
town Venice. I even found a
motel that many of my co-
workers had thought was
closed the Kon Tiki, a small
10-room motel nest to the
Circus Bridge on the island.
The Kon Tiki has a pool and
grill for cooking outside.
Near to the island I found
the Laurel Villa Motel, Noko-
mis Inn and Holiday Inn of
Venice, all with very afford-
able rates and accommoda-
tions that ranged from plain
to very nice. The lobby of the
Holiday Inn is especially nice
,and that property has restau-
rant service featuring food-by
Buffalo Bill, a popular Venice
caterer.
Some, like Motel 6 and the
El Padtio Hotel were not what I
was looking for, despite the
price, but both are very af-


fordable.
The Veranda Inn, on the is-
land, has a large pool and one
of the better restaurants, the
Kingfish Cafe on its premises.
Five motels were priced
just above my $100 limit.
The BestWestAmbassador
Suites near the Interstate has
rates beginning at $99 per
night but as those rooms had
only one king-size bed, they
could not accommodate four.
However, I was impressed by
the courteous staff and beau-
tiful facilities. Rooms with
two beds start in the low 100s,
and there are AAA discounts.
The Hampton Inn & Suites,
just off the island, was equally
impressive but with starting
rates quoted at $119 a night
for two queen-sized beds, it
too was out of my price range.
AAA or other discounts would
lower that rate.
The Ramada in Osprey is
technically beyond the 5-mile
range but several friends rec-
ommended it. Online rates
exceeded $100 per night but
there may be a local discount

during some periods. It is
always best to check directly
with the motel or hotel.
Venice Beach Villas has
rooms starting at $125 a
night, which again was over
my budget and, although the
rooms are very nice, it also is
close to my apartment per-
haps too close.
The Inn at the Beach I
assumed would be the most
expensive given its location
across from the Venice Public
Beach.
* Inn at the Beach Resort
(484-8471) Much to my
surprise, the clerk told me
rooms either with one king
bed or a pair of double beds
start at $133 per night. Many
of the most affordable rooms
have already been booked for
Christmas week. Rooms still
are available, so definitely
give them a call.
In my quest, I drove 5 miles
down East Venice Avenue, cir-
cled back to go 5 miles north
on U.S. 41, then went 5 miles

STAFF REPORT


In a joint announcement,
the South County Family
YMCA and Venice Regional
Medical Center will be part-
nering to develop a Phase III
Cardiac Rehab for cardiac
patients that will be located at
the Venice YMCA Wellness
Center.
"Phase III Cardiac Rehab is
the on-going, community-
based exercise and fitness
program designed specifically
to help people with cardiac
disease maintain better
health," said Dave William-
son, chief financial officer at
Venice Regional Medical Cen-
ter. "We have been providing
it at our HealthPark facility,
while also doing whatever we.
can to support them. It makes
sense that we combine re-
sources and use a program
where achieving all-around
physical fitness is the focus."
The partnership involves
the YMCA equipping space for
the rehab program with Venice
Regional Medical Center pro-
viding resources to have a car-
diac-trained nurse at the facili-
tywho will oversee the special-
ized exercise program.
This program will be an
enhancement for each partic-
ipant. In addition to the
resources of the nurse over-
seeing the program, each par-
ticipant will become a YMCA
member, and will have the
opportunity to utilize the
extensive equipment avail-
able at the facility.
. "Once again, Venice Re-
gional Medical Center's ad-
ministration has demonstrat-
ed their willingness to partner
with other community orga-
nizations to make our com-
munity and each patient's life
that much better," said Ken
Modzelewskl, president and
CEO of the YMCA.
"We are very pleased to be
in this partnership and will
work to make this the best
possible program for' all


involved."
The South County Family
YMCA offers health and well-
ness programs for people of
all ages. The new 55,000-
square-foot facility under
construction at the Center
Road campus is scheduled for
completion in fall 2006. Plans
include on-site partnerships
with Big Brothers Big Sisters,
The American Cancer Society,

S 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
I temperatures after each time they are used on a patient. Sterilization
methods include: and autoclave (steam under pressure), a dry heat
oven or chemical vapor (commonly called a chemiclave). The
i 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.

Sally Hagan and I took a
tour of the MRT facility at
5175 Englewood Road, and. I
could hardly believe my eyes.
Its inventory of trees, shrubs
and exotic plants is outstand-

It will deliver plants to the

committee to sell them at a
discounted rate. What we
don't sell, will be picked up
and returned to MRT at no

I learned that the "T" in
MRT stands for Taylor. That is,
the well known Taylor family

community leaders. Thank
you very much. (P.S. I still
have five booths available for
businesses that want to show-

Lois Bartlett Tracy remembers Myakka State Park


BY DIANA HARRIS
COLUMNIST

Lois Bartlett Tracy, a
nationally known artist, first
came to our area as a teenage
snowbird with her family in
1913. Friday, she celebrated
her 105th birthday. Here are
some of her recollections of
bygone days.
"During the 1930s we lived
.inVenice. My husband, Harry,
was in the inn or hotel busi-
.ness. We ran the Venice-
Myvakka Hotel on Highway 41.
That whole area was nothing
but gorgeous fields of golden
sunflowers then.
"A place I went a: lot to
paint was what is now My-
akka State Park long before
it was a park. There weren't
any real roads in there and it
was rough going. I remember
I had some slacks sewn of
canvas to protect my legs
when I went out in the jungle
like that.
"That was Mr. Ailse
Carleton's ranch '- I had got-
ten to know him real well. He
and some of his cowboys
would take me out early in the
morning and drop me off in
some hammock and pick me
up on their way back in the
early evening. I would take
two big canvases along and I
would have one painting usu-
ally pretty well along and
another under way by the
time they got back.
"In the springtime on the
ranch, it would be all iris or
blue flags blooming and they
would come up to the horse's
knees. It was so beautiful and
very fragrant. I loved painting
out at Myakka the black
water, the palm trees leaning
over the water and the mag-
nificent old oak trees. You
1knowthere's no place else that
looks like that.


COULRTES', PHOTO
Lois Tracy sketching in Myakka State Park years after her first visits. The photo was taken in the
1970s.


"When I used to go out
with Ailse Carleton, they
always had some apricot
brandy. They had this tradi-
tion. When you took your
horse across the Myakka it
was the headwaters you
had to have a drink of brandy,.
you see, not a big drink, just a'
little swig so they had a
thing of apricot brandy they
swigged on all day as they
went, back and forth across
the river.
"You know, everyone was,
wearing coonskin coats up
north then, so there were a lot
of coon hunters all round. You
saw coon-hunter camps all
through the woods in Myakka
in those days. You know, I
only have a couple of my
paintings left from those early
days,because of the ire ,we.


had later, but one of them is
of a coon-hunter's camp in
Myakka.
"And turpentining was still
being done then. I remember
turpentine camps on the way
to the Carleton Ranch. I can
remember buying gallons of
turpentine to clean my
brushes with at a camp out in
the woods.
"Sometimes I took guests
from the Venice-Myakka Ho-
tel out there for moonlight
horseback rides. Oh, that
place was so special!"
In 1994, the Metropolitan
Museum of Art in New York
added one of Lois Tracy's
paintings to its collection of
20th century American art.
The museum asked about
when she first started to sell
her work. Shq~told thqm since,


she lived and painted in
Florida, her paintings most
often had palm trees in them.
She developed a "palm tree
scale" for pricing them.
"If I put in three palm trees,
I got $3 a painting; five palm
trees, I got $5. But $3 and $5
bought an awful lot of gro-
ceries in those days. :
"It's hard for me to believe
that some of the paintings I
have in museums now, like
the Air and Space Museum in
Washington and the Met, are
valued at thousands and
thousands of dollars," said
Lois.

Holiday happiness shared


pat..'







BENNETT GROSS
RELIGION COLUMNIST


Christmas and Hanukkah,
though completely different
in their origins and signifi-
cance, share a commonality
of being the happiest of holi-
days. .
But history tells us. that
Hanukkah originated in-the
darkest of times for the Jewish
people.
In the second century
before the common era, the
forces of the Greek-Syrian
Empire ruled Jerusalem and
their king had outlawed
Jewish rituals, including the
most important of all the,
observance of the Sabbath.
A small group of Jewish
rebels called the Maccabees
fought against all odds for
three years and finally pre-
vailed against a larger and
stronger army to bring reli-
gious freedom to their people.
And in doing so brought
about a miracle.
Hanukkah means "dedica-
tion," a task that the. Mac-
cabees set out to do in the
Temple by lighting its great
menorah in celebration of
their victory.
But the Syrians had dese-
crated the Temple as well as
most of the oil used for keep-
ing the menorah burning.


According to legend, only
one small cruse of pure oil
could be found an amount
that was supposed to last for
one day. But a miracle hap-
pened heie and it burned for
eight days.
More than 2,000 years
later, the Jewish people cele-
brate the holiday by lighting
candles in their personal
menorahs for eight days.
Starting with one candle
on the first night and ending
on the last with eight, the
flames reach up to proclaim
the miracle of the oil and the
freedom that it proclaimed.
But the miracle of the oil
goes beyond the menorah.
When you think of all that
has happened to the Jewish
people throughout the ages,
the Crusades, the Inqui-
sitions, the pogroms and the
Holocaust, the candles that
have been lit for Hanukkah
might have .been extin*-
guished long ago.
But the spiritual power
that drives Judaism, the belief
that the world is sustained by
three things by the Torah,
by worship and by acts of lov-
ing kindness has served as
a beacon to its people.
The calling to do good is
reflected in this rabbinical
belief: Thousands of candles
can be lighted from a single
candle and the life of the can-
dle will not be shortened.
Happiness never decreases
by being shared.
As the candles and holiday
lights go on, we have an,
opportunity to think beyond
the wrappings and tinsel of
the usual gift-giving to family
and friends.
Consider what your dona-
uon can mean to the Food

charitable institutions that
bring light into lives where
there is darkness.
Think too as the sages did
that the light of a candle is a
symbol of the soul and that its
flame reaches up- toward
heaven, as do two hands
clasped in prayer.
Before the first candle is lit
for Hanukkah this prayer is
said: "These lights are a sym-
bol of the joy we feel that our
faith was saved from extinc-
tion. May its flame burn ever
more brightly, and to illumine
our lives and give light to the
world." ., ,
And to that I add May
the flame spread the light of
love and blessings for all.
Shalom.

Mugwump is a 1-1/2-year-old pit mix. He's very friendly and
affectionate and he still has lots of puppy energy. He has lived
with kids of all ages, dogs and cats. Mugwump gets along with
other animals as long as they are nice to him, but according to
his former owners, he will defend himself if he feels threat-
ened. In spite of his size, this guy thinks he's a lap dog. Can
you give Mugwump a home? Visit the Humane Society of
Sarasota County at 2331 15th St., Sarasota, call 955-4131, or

ence the array of actiities
reap4Ny aMi.able to tleir more
affluent peers. Since the pri-
Smary goal of Head Start is to
level the playing field for chil-
dren who live in poverty so
they enter Kindergarten with
the skills needed to learn, the
more we are able to expose
them to activities that in-
crease their knowledge and
understanding, the better
chance we have of achieving


the goal. We believe that the
opportunity to experience
new places and activities is a
wonderful way to teach
young children, especially
those whose family income
precludes anything more
than the very basics." Chil-
dren who are prepared to
learn in school, and then
experience success in school,
, are much less likely to get into
trouble as youth, get preg-

cast journalism in 1950's America It

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

Nine Lives
A woman in prison desperate to
speak to her daughter, a patient
teenager acting as a go-between for
her parents, a life thrown into confu-
sion by an unexpected encounter in
the grocery store these are just a
few of the remarkable stories of Nine
SLives. Each of the film's separate but,
sometimes overlapping episodes is a
small window into an emotional junc-
ture in a woman's life, each one cap-
tured in real time and each in a single
camera shot. Xavier Perez Grobet's
seamless camera weaves among the
players, and the film is a treasure trove
of award-worthy performances from'
both lead and supporting players.

Pride and Prejudice

Malone), Mary (Talulah Riley), and
Kitty (Carey Mulligan) have been
raised well aware of their mother's
(two-time Academy Award nominee
Brenda Blethyn) fixation on finding'
them husbands and securing set
futures. The spirited and intelligent
Elizabeth, hoWever, strives to live her
life with a broader perspective, as
encouraged by her doting father (two-
time Golden Globe Award winner
Donald Sutherland).

Sarah Silverman:
Jesus is Magic
"I can't believe I just laughed at
,hat": a common thought indeed
ihen enjoying the caustic material of
i;and-up comedian Sarah Silverman.
-asily one of the show-stoppers of the'
)oty-mouthed smash 'The Aristocrats:
ere Silvere Silverman seily slinks onto the
itage for her solo show. From behind
he facade of her ditzy Jewish-
Imerican Princess persona, she fires
harp jabs. No subject is taboo as she
ips through routines about race, sex,
culture family, social status, the
-lolocaust, the September 11 terrorist
irtacks, drugs and death. The skewer-
ng of taboos results in side-splitting
hilarity. Silverman's comic career has
often ruffled the leathers of the
politically correct. At the age of 22,
she shocked censors as a writer for
"Saturday Night Live" and later built
a fan base with appearances on the
cultlV comedy "Mr. Show" with Bob
Odenkirk and David Cross. An off-
color quip on a chat show even made
her the target of media watchdogs.
Rather than capitalize on easy vulgari-
ties or fan the flames of intolerance,
Silverman uses her comedy of con-
frontation to address sensitive matters
by dragging them into the spotlight.
The brief awkward silences that follow
her most stinging lines only serve to
bolster their impact and the subse-
quent laughter balances the inherent
discomfort in examining such delicate
themes.
Burns Court: 5, 7:45

The Squid and
the Whale
Noah Baumbach's new film is an
excruciatingly humane, often hilarious
portrait of a disintegrating family in
mid-1980s Brooklyn. Set in the state-
ly, yet off-kilter, neighborhood 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 recognitioncontinues 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 budding
sexuality. When Bernard and Joan
finally decide to separate, the family
must confront their unraveling situa-
tion head on.
Burns Court: 5:30

Syriana
From writer/director Stephen
Gaghan, winner of the Best
Screenplay Academy Award for
Traffic, comes 'Syriana, a political
thriller that unfolds against the
intrigue of the global oil industry.
From the players brokering 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 erce .
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 (Man 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) facesa moral
dilemma as he finesses the ques- ..
tnonable merger of two powerful U.S.
oil companies, while across the
globe, a disenfranchised Pakistani
teenager tMazhar Munir) falls prey to
the recruiting efforts of a'charismatic
cleric. Each plays their small part in
the vast and complex system that
powers the industry, unaware of the
explosive impact their lives will have
upon the world. 2hrs. 3 min.

Ushpizin
Moshe and Mali, a poor childless
Orthodox couple, find themselves
penniless on the eve of the Jewish
holiday of Sukkot. As they both pray
desperately to the L-rd to help them,
the impossible happens. Their
prayers are heard and they receive
an .unexpected 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 G-d 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.
In Hebrew with English subtitles.

Walk the Line
Joaquin Phoneix stars as the leg-

serving in the Air Force, and becom-
ing the original rebel rocker, it's a
colorful portrait of a man who
affected rock and roll forever.
