City: VCC never



touted as



potential shelter

Venice officials say the community center was
never proposed to be a hurricane shelter, but
archived news stories and the city's own audit
report say otherwise.

City loses code-violation case in court


The code board winds up ruling in favor of a
resident city inspectors accused of demolishing
and rebuilding a house without ever applying for
a permit.

Good morning, Gondolier
Sun subscriber,
JODY GOUGE


When city code enforce-
ment officers began accusing
Conrad Meyer of trying to
"circumvent the system," the
local resident got an attorney.
That decision more than
six months ago just may have
saved him from having to
demolish a second home at
,his 716 Groveland Ave. prop-
erty.
Inspectors initially cited
Meyer more than a year ago
for construction without a
permit. That charge led to
citations saying Meyer de-
molished the nonconforming
mother-in-law suite behind
his home and replaced it with
a one-bedroom house with-
out ever applying for a single
permit.
But city inspectors failed to
prove that, according to a 3-2
vote by Municipal Code
Enforcement Board members
on Monday. Instead, Meyer
was found guilty of enlarging

the mother-in-law suite and
given 180 days to return it to
its unaltered form.
Venice attorney Matthew
Rheingans, who represented
Meyers, said that having legal
representation made the dif-
ference. Rheingans also won
an appeal in circuit court of
$5,000 worth of city fines
against Meyers.
"Both my client and I were
very pleased with the out-
come," Meyers said.
Times have changed
This is a far cry from tradi-
tional code board meetings at
city hall. The typical setting
from more than two years ago
involved seven volunteer citi-
zens, the city attorney, code
enforcement officers and the
property owner if he or she
showed up.
Those days of casual meet-
ings about whether some-
one's grass needed to be cut
appear to be gone as fines in
several cases this year have
topped $30,000, the demoli-


tion of buildings has beei
ordered and one owne
almost lost his $400,000 non
homestead house because o
a dirty pool.
Code officers called
Meyer's action "borderlin
fraud" at the July code boar(
meeting, which was the firs
time Meyers showed up wit
Rheingans as his attorney.
Before Meyers, resident
rarely had used an attorney
during regular code boar
meetings. Many sessions last
ed for hours as board mem
bers drifted off topic an
attempted to help property
owners solve their code probe
lems, rather than deciding
whether a violation had oc
curred.
Rheingans believes th
tightened code board proce
dures can only help resident
protect their property rights.
"What I've noticed, front
the time I first got into thi
case and we've been into
for almost a year the cod
board has become a lot mor
savvy, and they're getting bet
ter through experience
Rheingans said. "They're ask
ing better questions and look

City hall made clear this
week that the 2003 bond issue
was "never" sold to voters as
providing the money to turn
the Venice Community Cen-
ter into a hurricane shelter.
But that's in direct contra-
diction to citizen memories,
oversight committee recollec-
tions, newspaper archives
and an official city audit
report that indicate Venice
did promote the bond issue
as helping create a shelter on
the island.
The city's claim was made
twice this week, by the city
manager's office and spokes-
woman Pam Johnson. News-
paper stories dating back to.
Jan. 16, 2002, contradict their
memories.
Citizens complained to
* city hall and wrote letters to
, the newspaper following a
Nov. 20 Gondolier Sun story
about howVCC may never be
used as an evacuation shelter,
s despite hurricane hardening
of the structure to withstand a
Category 3 storm. This is
because the building is too
close to the Gulf of Mexico.
The latest city denial came
Friday during a meeting of
the Citizens Tax Oversight
Committee, when the volun-
teer board was reviewing
expenditures on renovation
of the community center and
members asked. Renovations
and expansion of VCC cost
n taxpayers $4.8 million.
"It is a hot topic on the
street," Vice Chair Jim Leis
f said.

assistant city manager during
the bond campaign said
the VCC was meant to serve
as a recovery shelter, hot an
evacuation shelter, and peo-
ple must have misunder-
stood. But that explanation
has changed, with Black and
Johnson later saying the idea
never even came up until
after the $10 million bond
issue passed in November
2003.
Johnson got up and, restat-
ing what was said at a
Tuesday media briefing, told
the committee the city "never
in any terms" promoted the
VCC as any type of shelter -
evacuation or post-storm
recovery.
"I hope that clarifies it be-
cause there's been an awful
lot of miNinformation out
there," Johnson told the
board.
How the city sold the $10
million bond has sparked
debate because many people
believe finally having an evac-
uation shelter within city lim-
its made the difference in the
vote. The measure passed 53
percent to 47 percent.
Several tax oversight com-
mittee members remem-
bered the VCC renovation
being promoted as an evacu-
ation shelter.
Leis did evenmore, pro-
ducing the city's financial
audit for fiscal year 2003-04,
and quoting from page 78.
"The Venice Community
Center Renovation Fund -
To account for the cost of ren-
ovating the community cen-
ter to be an emergency evacu-
ation shelter," Leis read from
the auditor's report.

Shirley La Riviere lost her
cat and lost her hat, but she
can always find her tree.
The 8-foot Scotch Cana-
dian pine has been in her liv-
ing room for more than a year.
That's when she purchased it
for $40 Christmas 1995.
"Every time my son comes
to visit, he says, 'Do you still
have that thing?' I belong to


the Venice Garden Club.
They've never heard of any-
thing like it."
La Riviere, a Venice retiree,
said she became attached to
the tree after she lost her old-
est cat and her winning hat in
two separate incidents earlier
this year.
The pure-white cat, which
she'd owned for sex eral years.
disappeared after she adopted
a new one. She looked for it, to
no avail. It was gone for a

The hat was sirring in the
backseat of her car, where she
put it after she won a contest
at the Venice Garden Club. Un-
fortunately, someone was at-
tracted to the Carmen Mira-
nda-style chapeau,; which fea-
tured $30 worth of artificial
fruit. '
La Riviere, who has collect-
ed 132 hats, reported her
newest one stolen to the
Venice Police Department,
which sent an officer who took


a report. During the course of
the conversation, she men-
doned her missing cat.
The officer, Todd Lucas,
told her he'd found one
matching that description, but
it had been hit by a car. Lucas
buried it, hoping to one day
find the owner.
La Riviere was not happy
about her cat and her hat,
which was never recovered.
Somewhere along the line,
La Riviere became attached to
her tree. The tree was chopped
down before Thanksgiving

Ninth-graders more than


one-third of retained students


STAFF REPORT

Education Commissioner
John L. Winn Monday asked
members of the High School
Reform Task Force to consid-
er recommending to the
Florida Legislature eliminat-
ing high school retention.
During the task force meet-
ing, Winn expressed concern
over the number of high
school students retained, par-
ticularly ninth-graders, and
called for policy changes to
redefine high school grade-
level classifications.
Of the nearly 93,000 high
school students retained last
year, more than a third were
in the ninth grade.
"There are a disproportion-
ate number of ninth-graders
retained in Florida and we
need to ask ourselves why they
are being retained in such
large numbers," said Winn. "Is
it to give them more time to
prepare for the FCAT or to
send a strong message about
student performance early on
in their high school- careers?
The question we ought to be
asking ourselves is whether
these reasons are good
enough to outweigh the nega-
dive effects of such policies."
Wrong message
In Florida, 36 school dis-
tricts retain ninth-grade stu-
dents who earn fewer than six
credits, regardless of grade
point average; seven retain
ninth-grade students with
less than a 2.0 grade point
average; and 33 retain ninth-
grade students with fewer
than five credits.
Last year, Florida school
districts retained more than
38,000 ninth-graders near-
ly 17 percent. No other grade
level, including the critical


third grade, retained more
students.
Third-grade retention is
centered on students' inabili-
ty to read proficiently and is a
necessary intervention step
to ensure students will be
able to meet the more rigor-
ous standards of subsequent
grades.
Current ninth-grade reten-
tion policies are inconsistent
from district to district and
lack the intervention typically
associated with retention.
Ninth-graders who do not
earn the credits necessary for
promotion to 10th grade are
classified as ninth-graders for
a second year. However, they
do not repeat the ninth grade
in its entirety, but retake the
courses they failed or take dif-
ferent courses that will count
toward graduation. The re-
mainder of their coursework
proceeds on the 10th-grade
level in classrooms of their
10th-grade peers.
"We are basically sending a
message to these students
that they have failed before
they even had a chance to get
started and there is little to no
hope of them graduating on
time," added Winn. "That's
the wrong message at exactly
the wrong time when stu-
dents are reaching the legal
age to drop out of school. We
need to encourage our stu-
dents, especially our strug-
gling students, and provide
them the support they need
to persevere and not leave."
Easy GEDs
Winn also urged task force
members to consider the pro-
posed elimination of high
school retention as a means
to reduce the number of high
school students who choose
to participate in General Edu-


national Development pro-
grams to earn an equivalent
diploma rather than pursue a
standard diploma.
Florida calculates into its
graduation rate students who
earn an equivalent diploma.
within four years of beginning
high school. Last year, 6,217 of
the 131,507 high school grad-
uates earned an equivalent
diploma through a GED pro-
gram.
"We want students to earn a
high school credential, but,
perhaps, are too quick to offer
them an alternative path in a
GED program," said Winn.
"This option surely saves many
kids from receiving no educa-
tion at all. but it may provide
an all-too-easy way around the
tougher road to a standard
diploma. Every high school
student should aspire to earn
their standard diploma."
According to data reported
by the Florida Department of
Education, there is a positive
correlation between districts'
graduation rates, their corre-
sponding GED rates and
ninth-grade retention rates.
On average, districts with
high graduation rates have
low GED and ninth-grade
retention rates, while districts
with low graduation rates
generally have high GED and
ninth-grade retention rates.

WHY FLOSS?
The basic objective of flossing is to mechanically remove plaque from
between the teeth, especially near and under the gumline. Flossing
does three things: Cleans teeth of plaque and food debris, freshens the
mouth, and fights plaque buildup.
Why floss? Why not just do a thorough job of brushing and be
satisfied that your teeth and gums are really protected? Well, even.
careful brushing reaches only three of the five tooth surfaces exposed
to the damaging effects of plaque and plaque microorganisms. If you
brush but don't floss, you are really doing part of the job! Those inside
surfaces between teeth are the real problem areas. Brushing effectively
cleans only the top. front, and back of your teeth. This means that 400%
of your tooth surfaces do not have plaque removed from them if you
only brush.
Once gum disease gets a head start, it is precisely in these between-
the-teeth that it is the most severe.

best deal that we possibly
could," said John McCarthy,
the county's parks and recre-
ation director. "This space is
not entirely open for boat
ramp facility, but it is more
than adequate for the job."
The property is currently
owned by Mary D. and Don-
ald G. Young Sr., who will be
allowed to live on 1.3 acres of
the site for up to a year after
the sale is closed Jan. 6. When
developed, it will provide
enough room for 50-100 boat
trailers.
Commissioner David Mills
questioned both the purchase
price and whether there would
be neighborhood issues.
"Some houses are very
close," he said. "There will be
a lot of activity here. Has any-
body asked questions about
compatibility?"
Before members of the
county staff could respond,
commissioner Jon Thaxton
said, "I've had ex-tensive con-
versations with people who
live at South Bay..There are


some concerns about noise
and light issues. They want to
be players and work them
out."
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson made it clear the
ramps would be active. :
"I'm sure the neighbors
would be pleased if we buy
this and keep
it low key,"
she said. "But
I'll be upset if
we spend $16
million and
minimally
use it. The site
will be buf-
fered so there

isn't too much

commission missed a chance.
to buy 3.58 acres along

side marinas near The Lan-
dinigs subdivision were pur-
chased by a private investor
for $8.4 million after the
county had offered far less
money.

Because a portion of the
Blackburn Point Road parcel
will be used for passive recre-
ation and includes the his-
toric J.H. Blackburn Home -
the county will attempt to
recover $4.4 million of its pur-
chase price through a grant
from the Florida Com-

The state agency provides
funding to governments and
nonprofit environmental
organizations for the pur-
chase of parks, open spaces
and greenways that further
the outdoor recreation and
natural resource protection
needs identified in city and
county comprehensive plans.
"I have no hesitation in
supporting this purchase,"
commissioner Shannon
Staub said. "On the open
market, it would sell for
what we are paying, and
more. If we plant vegetation,
and park in the middle, it
will satisfy the South Bay
residents. Who wants to see
more condos?"

SHELTER from Page 1 A
More clarification
Acting Finance Director
JoAnne Lounsbury said she
does not know why auditors
wrote that in the report and is
still investigating. It was at
that point Johnson got up
from the audience and ad-
dressed the board.
Her words did little to con-
vince them the audit report
was incorrect
"I just would like some ver-
ification of that," Tax Over-
sight Chairman Jon Preiksat


said after the meeting. "I re-
member meetings discussing
that. I just recall that being
the idea."
Johnson and Black contin-
ue to point out that campaign
material produced by the city
makes no reference to mak-
ingVCC.a hurricane shelter.
But in a review of Gondo-
lier Sun newspaper archives,
bond and VCC preview sto-
ries dating all the way back to
January 2002 describe the
effort as creating the island's
first hurricane shelter.
Johnson's claim that the


FEMA grant didn't come up
until after the vote was held is
contradicted in a May 2, 2003,
story in which Jim Myers -
who was a city council mem-
ber at the time talked about
applying for up to $1.8 million
in grants in order to make VCC
a hurricane shelter.
Similar specific references
also were made in stories
published Oct. 2, 2002, and
July 16 and Oct. 15, 2003.
"We'll be making grant
requests to 10 or 11 other
grant resources," Myers said
in the 2003 story.

read. The Rotary District 6060
covers 55 local clubs. The goal
is to enlist 100 mentors from
its ranks by January.
"We don't think that will be
a problem," Faucy said.-
"We've had a great reception.
So far, Rotary members have
signed up at every meeting."
Hathaway-Howe said area
schools have already identi-
fied at least 200 students in
need of mentoring. She ex-
pects that number to increase
to about 600 throughout the
district, which covers an area
from Naples to Manatee to
Immokalee.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of
the Sun Coast, Southwest
Florida and Charlotte County
will partner to cover the dis-.
trict.
The- University of South
Florida has offered to track
and research the effective-
ness of the Rotary Readers
mentor program.
"There are. different levels
Rotary members can partici-
pate in," Hathaway-Howe
said. "We're looking for mem-
bers willing to give their time
and effort to a great cause.
These kids really need our
help.
Who better?
Faucy pointed to Sarasota


County School District FCAT
results as the catalyst for the
program. According to the
Department of Education,
said Faucy, 33 percent of
third-graders don't read at
grade level. Another 28 per-
cent in fourth grade and 34
percent in fifth grade read
below grade level.
"Clearly these students
need help. Unfortunately,
there is also an adult literacy
problem. This is where Rotary
Readers comes into play.
We're perfect, for this. Big
Brothers has the structure.
Rotary has the manpower. I
don't know why we didn't
think of this (mentor partner-
ship) sooner," Faucy said.
Rotary Club members can
help by. signing a check, or
they can volunteer at the
school organizing the pro-
gram, or actually become a
mentor.
Big Brothers -will train
members to become a read-
ing mentor. BBBS already has
a mentorship program in
place, said Faucy. She claims
98 percent of BBBS mentored
students go on to higher edu-
cation.
"We need to provide this
opportunity to more chil-
dren" she said.
"Rotary Club members


really know their communi-
ties," said Hathaway-Howe.
Who better to step in and
help out? she said.
She anticipates the new
program will serve a dual pur-.
pose. Both Rotary Clubs and
BBBS see the program as an
excellent recruitment tool,
and hopes it will go interna-
tional.
The program has yet to
really take off, but:already a
Russian envoy has expressed
interest.
Svetlana Alexseyevna Ga-
bova, secretary of the North
Star Rotary Club in Syktyvkar,
visited BBBS of the Sun Coast
in Venice on Friday to learn
more about Rotary Readers
mentor program and how the
partnership works with Big
Brothers. Gabova also directs
the Syktyvkar Pedagogical
College No. 2, a "state estab-
lishment of vocational educa-
tion."
Gabova said Komi Repub-
lic in Russia has few programs
for kids like this. She hopes to
learn how to duplicate the
same kind of partnerships in
her hometown of Syktyvkar.

board, instead of going off on
tangents. ... They're turning
into a more professional
administrative body."
Legal requirements
At least four code board
cases have popped up in cir-
cuit court this year.
The Meyers case, however,
was the first one in which a
property owner challenged
the city board's ruling and
Rheingans won.
Judge Nancy Donnellan
ruled that code board was
wrong to have reversed its
May 5 decision that found
Meyers in compliance with
an order to obtain building
permits. Code board mem-
bers sided with Meyers back
then because he .had
approved permits in his
hand, and inspectors did not
have a response.
It was only after the.hear-
ing that inspectors discovered
Meyers was issued permits
that had later been revoked.
The code board rescinded its
"innocent" verdict during the


June meeting. A new hearing
was held in July at which the
board found Meyers guilty
and levied $5,050 worth of
fines.
"Said order departs from
the essential requirements of
law and is not supported by
substantial competent evi-
dence," Donnellan wrote in
her decision.
Higher stakes
More big cases, circuit
court challenges and defense
attorneys in code board hear-
ings have increased the stakes
on what a person knows ver-
sus what lie or she can prove.
Vice Mayor Fred Hammett,
who is the council liaison and
a former code board member
from seven years ago, said the
Meyers case is a classic exam-
ple of that.
There were "significant
modifications" to the Meyers
,house, but little physical evi-
dence proving the noncon-
forming mother-in-law suite
was demolished. The old
building was grandfathered


in before new zoning laws
went into effect outlawing a
second home on the Grove-
land Avenue lot.
In other words, the original
house could stay. A new
house would have to be
demolished.
The greatest concern for
Hammett is how the city
believes a brand new house
on Groveland Avenue was
constructed without a single
building permit being issued
or inspection given, yet the
city cannot legally prove that.
Hammett wonders if this
"new" house can withstand a
hurricane, or if it will collapse
and injure others.
"Code enforcement is
evolving from reactive to pro-
active," Hammett said.
"(Code officers) are going out
to see what is wrong. ... It's
more and more important to
keep the city safe, and that's
what (code officers) are
doing."

Sarasota County releases 2005
Community Conversations report
Sarasota County residents identified the natural environment
as their top value and said it was the top legacy they wished to
leave behind, according to the 2005 Community Conversations
report issued by the county this week.
Following the environment, arts and culture and affordable
housing rounded out the top three legacy issues, while smart
growth and affordable housing were the other top legacy
issues. Public safety and public transportation occupied the
fourth and fifth positions in the combined rankings for values,
while cultural diversity and arts and cultural took the same
positions on the legacy side.
"Participation in the community conversations shows what our
residents hold near and dear, those things that we should
nurture and build upon to create a place that reflects these
values," said County Administrator Jim Ley. "It also shows that
our citizens believe that maintaining these values and working
toward a legacy is not only the job of elected officials and those
who work for Sarasota County government, but is also a re-
sponsibility shared by all of us who live in Sarasota County."
Sarasota County officials will use the report to set priorities as
they plan programs and services that support what residents
indicated were important to them.
The report, is available on the county's Web site at scgov.net/
conversation and at the County Administration Center, the R.L.
Anderson Administration Center and at all county libraries.
From May through August, more than 300 residents partici-
pated in the community conversations with County Administrator
Jim Ley. The six informal sessions took place in Venice, North
Sarasota, Sarasota, Englewood, Twin Lakes Park and North
Port. Divided into small groups, Ley asked the participants to
consider first, what they Valued in their communities, and
second, what legacy they wished to leave future generations.
Finally, Ley concluded by asking residents what they would do
to help create the legacy.
The groups' response to the values and legacy questions
were captured by facilitators, and the participants were asked to
rank their top three value and legacy issues. The 2005 Commu-
nity Conversations Report distills the series of six conversations
into a master compilation of all conversations, as well as the
results of each conversation. The format of the report allows
residents to see the results of the conversation from their area
and compare them with results from other locales in the county
and the overall compilation.


This listing is published weekly by Sarasota County Government Public
Communications. Board of County Commission agendas are available at
www.scgov.net; to subscribe to agenda via e-mail, go to scgov.net/weeklycalendar.

SARASOTA COUNTY BRIEFS


Siesta Key renourishment
in fall 2006
In spite of Sarasota County
making every effort to com-
plete the South Siesta Key
Beach Nourishment Project
prior to the next hurricane
season, the expected start
date for the construction
phase of the project is being
revised due to a lack of avail-
ability of qualified contrac-
tors, county officials an-
nounced.
Current workload, in part
due to storm activity during
the 2005 hurricane season,
has contractors committed to
previous jobs, and unavail-
able to support a February


NCLB frorn Page 6A
Overall, the study found
that most states do a signifi-
cantly better job measuring
English fluency and tracking
students' progress toward flu-
ency as a result of NCLB.
Further, English instruction
programs are now making
substantially more progress
when it comes to teaching
English than before NCLB
was, passed.
This study is expected to
have a dramatic impact on
the debate over NCLB, which
has become a political light-
ning rod because it places
strong emphasis on the
progress schools make teach-
ing English fluency, said Lex-
ington Institute officials.
In addition to Florida, the
paper analyzes the six other
states with the largest popula-
tions of English learners -
Arizona, Illinois, California,
Massachusetts, NewYork and
Texas. It details in a side-by-
side comparison what each
state has done to comply with
NCLB, and how successful
those changes have been.
The study, Making Uneven
Strides: State Standards for
Achieving English Language
Proficiency Under. the No
Child Left Behind Act, was
written by Christine Rossell,
one," of dLe nation's most
prominent experts on English
language learning and a pro-
fessor at Boston lUniversity.
The report focuses on a
linchpin of the NCLB law -
its rigorous accountability
system for students' academ-
ic progress.
No Child Left Behind re-
quires schools to show ade-
quate. results for all students,
and also for each of a number
of subgroups broken down by
such factors as students' sex,
ethnicity and income level.
In addition, there is anoth-
er subgroup for students with
limited English proficiency,
which is arguably the most
controversial category, be-
cause it is largely defined by
students' test scores in the
first place.
The complete study is
available at lexingtoninsti
tute.org.

start date.
The county had hoped to
solicit construction bids this
week; however, qualified con-
tractors have indicated that
due to prior commitments
they would not be able to
support the schedule require-
ments.
County officials have been
working directly with state


and federal agencies to expe-
dite the permitting process
and are disappointed with
this turn of events.
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson expressed the general
county sentiment: "Naturally
I am.very disappointed. How-
ever, I can't say thank you
enough to the state and fed-
eral agencies and Congress-


ional staffs who took our re-
quests to heart and worked to
expedite required permitting
activities."
The county now targets a
Nov. 1 construction start in
order to comply with permit
conditions that prohibit con-
struction during sea turtle
nesting season. Nesting season
is May 1-Oct. 31 each year.

STAFF REPORT

Manatee Community Col-
lege graduating sophomore

her vision in the ceremony

laude, Randol is well prepared
for her mission. She plans to
earn a bachelor's degree'in
special education at the


University of South Florida.,
After that, she hopes to get a
master's degree as a curricu-
lum specialist and a doctorate
in educational psychology.
While working at a small
private school, Randol saw
middle'-school, students at a
crossroads. She wants to pos-
itively influence the entire
learning environment for
such studerits through cur-
riculum assessment develop-
ment, socio-psychological
training and refined leader-
ship skills.
Randol, 39 and a Venice

OUR VIEW


Give a gift with real meaning


s we scurry around buying gifts for lov-
ed ones and friends, we all carry a gift
within us that is more precious than the
shiniest gold or most brilliant diamond ring.
You don't have to fight crowds to give this
gift, and it doesn't have to be gift wrapped.
It's blood.
Depending on weight, the average person
has about nine pints of blood flowing
through their body. Just one pint'of it could
really make a difference in the life of the vic-
tim of an accident or someone who is sched-
uled for surgery.
For years in America the supply of blood
on hand at blood banks was more than suffi-
cient to handle our needs. Many people
donated generously.
Today it is just the opposite, as blood
banks across the country make an appeal for


blood donors to come forward to help
replenish the supply. Our blood supply is
now at a critical low in many communities
throughout the country.
We don't normally think about a time
when we might need blood. When life is nor-
mal and going well, it's just not something
that is on our minds.
But when you are crushed in the front seat
of your car and can hear the siren from the
EMT vehicle on its way, many thoughts could
go through your mind.
That cut on your arm is bleeding so much
that you are afraid you might pass out. Your
heart is pounding, and with each beat more
of the red liquid of life seems to leave your
body.
You are actually afraid that you might not
live to see that EMT reach into your car to


begin helping you. You think you might need
a blood transfusion, but you don't think
about whether there is an ample supply wait-
ing at the hospital.
The ride to the hospital seems like an eter-
nity, and you are wheeled into the emergency
room. The hospital staff begins to give you a
blood transfusion and they tell you that you
might need two pints.
You are lucky.
The blood supply is at a decent level, and
you are thankful for that.
But, what if your blood type had not been
available?
Donating blood usually takes only about
15 minutes. There are a few questions you are
asked so the total time spent is about a half-
hour.
A half hour 30 minutes of your time -


his season

could ensure another person continues to
live. Continues to see loved ones. Continues
to be able to hug grandchildren. Maybe your
gift will preserve to life of another blood
donor who will be able to continue to donate
blood and save other lives.
We should thank those we know who give
blood although often they don't really want
recognition; they donate because they want
to help someone. Still, a "thankyou" might be
nice.
Lights decorate our home, songs are being
sung and presents are being purchased.
This holiday season, make the difference
in another person's life.
It will cost nothing but a little of your time,
and will give you a warmer feeling than all
the hot chocolate and cashmere sweaters in
the world.


Curing colds



and more


BOB VEDDER,


I have had a cold for four
weeks. It has taken on differ-
ent forms and feels, but for
the last two weeks it has really
been unfun.
I wake up each night
coughing away, waking up
Sue and generally being mis-
erable. Each time I get differ-
ent things to try to make the
cough go away. I am finishing
my second bottle of Nyquil. I
have polished off more than a
bottle of Robitussin DM. I use
a variety of cough drops and
drink lots of fluids.
I have resorted to some of
the things my mom taught us
like putting Vicks VapoRub
on. I did not go to echinacea
as I have seen studies that
show that does nothing, al-
though a lot of people swear
by it.
I tried more Vitamin C,
helping out the orange grow-
ers. One fanatic says that you
should put it directly in the
nasal passages in order to get
it directly at the problem a
far quicker way of curing the
cold. That sounds gross to
me.
It was suggested I should
have bought zinc, which is
supposed to cure lots of
things. Zinc lozenges are
highly recommended and
some studies show a shorten-
ing of the duration of a cold.
Some suggest at the onset
of a cold you should stop eat-
ing sugar, which is great
advice unless, of course, it
is the holidays. Others say you
should brush your teeth with
hydrogen peroxide and a bak-
ing-soda paste.
They say to wash your
hands often in cold season
and wipe the phones down.
One person suggested
breathing out when you go by
someone; seems a little ex-
treme to me.
A sure way to get a cold is
go on an airplane that takes
all cold germs and mixes
them together and circulates
them throughout the plane.
The idea of eating lots of
garlic during cold season so
no one will get near you was
maybe the most unique, if not
gross, idea.
Well, nothing has seemed
to work for me, so I decided to
call the doctor. Why I did that
I don't know, because we all
know there is no cure for a


cold. There may be ways to
reduce it, but there is no cure.
My nurse, Kim, suggested I
try Robitussin DM. After that
didn't work, my doctor gave
me the newest and the great-
est "Z" antibiotic. I had a Z
pack before, which is a series
of five pills taken to fight
infection.
The product, my doctor
explained, was the new, im-
proved Zithromax, a drink
you only take once. You just
mix the powder into 2 ounces
of water and chug-a-lug. I fig-
ured it would be like that stuff
you take prior to a colon-
oscopy, which is awful.
'Before taking it I decided to
read the little pamphlet that
comes along,with it. Since I
can't read Spanish, I tried the
English version. What I read
shocked me.'
What I was about to take -
what millions of people take
all the time is a cure for chi-
amydia trachomatis, which is
the organism responsible for
most of the sexually transmit-
ted infections in the United
States. Some 4.5 million men
and women have it.
It goes on to outline how
it's usually in young people
who are very sexually active
with multiple partners. Wow!
My life is exciting if playing
golf can be considered excit-
ing but nothing like this
brochure was detailing.
I was assured I had the
right stuff and that the doctor
wasn't hiding something from
me. It seemed strange, how-
ever, that the pamphlet said
nothing about any other use
for this drug.
Anyway, I drank it and was
surprised it didn't taste bad. I
am sure I got rid of all the
chlamydia I have but have yet
to get rid of the cold.
I have resorted to falling
asleep in my chair, which has
stopped the coughing at
night. My back is sore, and
maybe that will be the next
ailment I need help on.
I'm still working on it try-
ing to find the magic cure.
Maybe you have one for me.

What donft we know about plans for 681?


Editor:
A Sunday front-page Gondolier Sun article made clear the
economic advantages to developers if State Road 681 is turned
into an accessible secondary road. Perhaps someone (our gov-
ernment representatives?) will explain the advantages to the:
taxpayer and commuter of such a change.
S.R. 681 now serves as a fine example of highway access
management. First, and foremost it serves as a high-speed
evacuation route in case of hurricanes or other emergencies. It
is the only truly limited access route to I-75 in the Venice area.
On a daily basis this road diverts traffic traveling north from
already congested secondary roads and thus speeds all com-
muter traffic. That is what it was designed for, and as the pop-
ulation increases, it will serve us even better. To use it otherwise
defeats its purpose.'
If it is underutilized in the future, a turn allowing travel to
and from the south would further increase its function as a
high-speed relief valve.
How will the public be better served by adding lights and
intersections every mile along 681? Imagine the delays at each
intersection with intersections 50 to 100 feet in width that must
be crossed.
The road will become just another slow-speed access to 1-75
and the incentive to use it lost, thus returning even more cars
to secondary roads without limited assess.,
Will urbanization along 681 better serve the public by
replacing pastures with homes and businesses? Was that the
intention of taxpayer funding used to build an "excess capaci-
ty arterial road?"

LET 'EM HAVE IT! WHAT WAS THE TOP NEWS STORY IN VENICE IN


VEDDER from Page 10A
volved in alot of nonprofits in
town and gets talked about a
lot.

By's Crack: Right now I
find that the stores give me
Santa Claustropobia.

Superintendent of Schools
Dr. Gary Norris wrote a re-
sponse to my column about
the additional money being
given to teachers for training,
starting in January. This is
work they currently are not
paid for and will now receive
$4 million for if they all avail
themselves of it.
As he commented, this
program is a way of getting
teachers more money, which
was one of the goals of the 1-
mill tax voters approved in
March 2002.
I agree that voters did
approve more money for,
teachers; however, where I
disagree is that voters were
told itwas to make up for rais-
es not given previously, not to
make them the highest paid
in the state and top 25 per-
cent nationwide. Never did
the voters think that was what
they were paying for.
One interesting thing has
happened since they have
found they can get paid for
courses starting in January:
They have withdrawn from
current classes in hopes they
will be offered later when they
will get credit. One class that
had 40 ended up with eight;


another class with 11 went to
three; a third class was can-
celed altogether.
Dr. Norris failed to explain
what the recourse,will be
against those who sign up
and get paid but don't do their
48 hours of training. My guess
is nothing much can happen.
Another interesting thing
to keep in mind when looking
at the nice increase is the per-
centage of students graduat-
ing.
In the last couple of years a
student has been able to take
the GED Exit/Option. This is a
contract with the student that
if he or she stays in school for
at least 90 percent of a mutu-
ally determined: time and
then passes the FCAT and the
GED, then even if he or she
does not have a graduation-
level grade point average, he
or she will get a diploma at
the graduation ceremony.
Students can do this without
completing school as long as
they fulfill the contract and
pass the FCAT and GED.
I think it is a novel way to
get kids 'to stay in school.
longer, and probably helps
the schools with enrollment
money.
When we study graduation
rate improvements, we
should realize in part how we
got there.

A pheasant was just seen
near Captain Eddie's Rest-

The new hospital landscap-
ing is nice. You will have no
problem seeing the new signs
for the heart center, either.
I was saddened to hear
that a longtime friend of
Venice will soon be leaving.
Jack Norman, who for years
was the head of Venice
Hospital, will-be moving to be
near family in Dexter, Mo. We
wish him Well.

Our quinquegenarian is
active in Rotary and has given
money to almost every good
cause in town. He and his
wife, Georgia, have been very
active with the YMCA for
years and are currently help-
ing build the new center. He
has helped identify areas of
need and made things hap-
pen to fix them. Maybe the
biggest example of that is
bringing movie theaters to
Venice. He is in the news
often because of his develop-
ments, but has a huge heart
for Venice.
Georgia says that when he
lies down with the kids in bed
at night to read to them, he
usually falls asleep before
they do, and the only time he
isn't on his cell phone is if he's
asleep.

Contiguous? You must be 'touched'


Shame, shame, shame. Hoorah for the Sorrento Ranches
Homeowner Association. The Gondolier Sun previously noted
the city's annexation of Villa Lago to be illegal as this property
was not contiguous with any property within the city ofVenice.
If this is illegal, why has it not been corrected?Whyhas the city
that espouses government in the sunshine and fairness not
come clean? Why hasn't the county objected? Why has the state
allowed this to happen? Why must the homeowner's associa-
tion demand fair treatment under the law? Shame on the city
of Venice. Shame on Sarasota County, and shame on the state
of Florida.


VPD needs fitness code.
With all the revamping of the
Venice Police Department, it
would be a major plus for-
them to establish a physical
fitness code for the officers.
I have never seen a police
department with so many
overweight almost obese
- personnel. Having been
involved with law enforce-
ment and police in the
Northeast, I find it hard to
imagine how many of the
Venice city police officers can
feel confident to do their job if
a real confrontation arose.
I've observed a lot of the


state troopers from here to
Orlando, and there aren't too
many of them that I'd ever
want to consider to tangle
with. It's just a thought to bear
in mind.
No comparison. Regarding
the coverage of Pearl Harbor
day, which was Dec. 7 that
happened many, many years
ago, the horrific 1941 sneak
attack by the Japanese, killing
a lot of innocent people. You
can't really compare that to
Sept. 11. People tend to do
that. And you can't really do
that because, what was the
count of American casualties

on Sept. 11?
I mean on the airplanes
and the trade center, not
counting the police, the port
authority or the firemen,.
because that was the mis-
communication thing, that
never should have happened.
It was a big faux pas and.it
.cost a lot of lives. You know
what?
That communication
problem still exists who
would have thunk it? But how
many American citizens were
killed in that terrorist attack
on the World Trade Center? It
would be interesting to know
because I think, in compari-
son to Pearl Harbor, it's
minuscule. But that's my
opinion.
Barriers needed. Yes, we
need vapor and sound barri-
ers at Venice Airport.

LI- II t h:R i
VHS are within walking dis-
tance; the rest have to be
bused in or drive.
I believe VHS is not up for
re-evaluation until 2012, and
that is too far away. Our com-
munity of Venice is growing
larger every year, and they are
cramming more students into
a facility too small for the cur-
rent population.

Agency. These home


Heaters are

heating-related fires have
eating occurred in the past three
home years, exceeding $25,300 in
220 property damage, according
d $449 to Sarasota C unty Fire Chief
age in Brian Gorskid
wording "These fires don't have to
by the happen," said Gorski. "Most
section fires caused by space heaters
fires are preventable if key safety


measures are followed."
To avoid problems, Gorski
recommends keeping space
heaters (both portable and
fixed), at least 3 feet away
from anything that can bum,
including furnishings, bed-
ding and clothing. Turn the
heater off when you leave the
room or go to sleep.
Wood stoves and fireplaces
also need special care. When
buying a new unit, make sure
a qualified technician per-
forms the installation. If the


appliance has already been
installed, have it checked to
make, sure the installation
was done properly.
Most fires in wood stoves,
fireplaces and chimneys oc-
cur due to a lack of regular
cleaning, which leads to the
buildup of creosote, the
residue of unburned fuel.
Heating devices should be
inspected and cleaned on a
regular basis according to the
manufacturer's instructions.
Use only seasoned hardwood

Crain leaves

1 Indian Ave.

What's going on atl 1 Indian
Ave.?
First it -was Ellen 'Hughes.
Now Cathy Crain.
Venice High has lost anoth-
er well-liked secretary, as
Crain has left the front office
for another employment op-
portunity.
Crain has been at Venice
High for a number of years.
She was always pleasant.
helpful and went beyond the
call of duty. She will be sorely'
missed. Her son is on the
junior varsity wrestling team,
so we'll still see her around the
gym. Husband Scott teaches
at VHS.
Hughes was the popular
athletics secretary at \-IS who
also just left for greener pas-
tures.

The Venice High boys bas-
ketball team has two games
this week before Christmas.
The Indians are at Bayshore
Tuesday and are at home
Thursday against Manatee.
Venice will play in the CES
Tournament Dec. 28-30 at
Manatee Community College.,
The Indians will open at
5:40 p.m. Dec. 28 against
Palmetto.
'Other teams in the tourna-
ment include Sarasota, Mana-
tee, DeSoto, Sarasota'
Christian, Southeast and Bra-
denton Prep.
Venice should finally be at
full strength with injured
starters Ariel Bonilla and Kyle
Abney back in the lineup.

Two Venice Vikings cheer-
leading squads competed in
the Pop Warner Nationals last
week at Disney's Wide World
of Sports.
The Lancers finished sixth
in the Pee Wee division, while
the Knights were 15th in
Junior Pee Wee.
The Vikings organization,
received a Sportsmanship
Award for conduct Dec. 6.

A bicycle ride along the
Venetian Waterway Park
revealed some damage inflict-
ed by Hurricane Wilma at the
VHS softball field. The score-
board now dangles over the
left field fence.
We saw where work has
begin on the press box/con-
cessions area. There is still a
lot of work to be done, howev-
er.
The season is approaching
fast. After the holidays, soft-
ball and baseball coaches will
be counting down the days to
first practice and preseason
tournaments.

We're happy to hear that'
the banners in the VHS north
gym have been hung with
care. A couple were falling off
the wall.
We still don't see a state
runnerup banner for girls bas-
ketball.

It was a beautiful night for
football Friday breezy and
a little cool but warmed by the
heated rivalry between PAL
Bowl combatants Sarasota
versus \ lanatee.
Cardinal Mooney High
proved to be a great setting for
the 14th annual All-Star Game
involving the top seniors from
each county.
A good-sized crowd wit-
nessed the event, which is
growing year-by-year.
Venice High was represent-
ed by eight players, all who
saw plenty of action for the
Sarasota squad.
Indians playing included
Tony Charles. who started at
safety; Ray Popp, who started
at linebacker; Josh Carpenter.
who started on die defensive
line; Ilya Vasilevskiy, who
played defensive end; Mike
Danski, who played on the D
line; KyTe Poinsett and Brad
Ackles, who played offensive
line; and Matt Wickwire, who
was one of the quarterbacks
on the squad.
Venice had a record of 4-8
in 2005, but that was.rnislead-
ing. The Indians played a
killer schedule and were able
to finish second in their dis-
trict to qualify for the regional
playoffs. In the opening
round, Venice opened eyes by
shutting down: previously
unbeaten Fort Myers.
Besides Venice, other high
schools making up the
Sarasota County All-Star
squad included Booker, Sara7
sota, Riverview and Cardinal
Mooney. Manatee school are
Southeast, Manatee, Lake-
wood Ranch, Bayshore' and
Palmetto.
In Friday night's game, the
hitting was intense in a defen-
sive struggle. Manatee was
able to post a 14-6 victory to
tie the all-time series at seven
wins apiece.
Southeast High's Faron
Jones was the offensive scar
for Manatee Counry, as he
threw for a second quarter
touchdown and rushed for a
third quarter TD. He topped
100 yards passing and rush-
ing.
Sarasota High's Antwan
Graham scored the Sarasota
County TD on a screen pass
from Riverview High's Carlos
Lowe.
. Veteran Mooney coach
Mike Dowling took charge of
the Sarasota squad, while
Southeast's Paul Maechtle
coached the Manatee stars.
Both county sheriffs were
on the field for the pre-game
coin toss William Balkwill
from Sarasota and Charlie
Wells from Manatee.
The proceeds from the PAL
Bowl helps fund youth pro-
grams in each county.
All-Star season isn't over
yet for Charles,,who has been
selected to play in the state
North-South game Friday in
Ocala.
Charles led Venice in rush-
ing, scoring and tackles.
Charles is being recruited
by several colleges.

Lady hoopsters let one slip away at 'View


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice High girls bas-
ketball team is showing signs
of becoming a good team, but
then there are games like
Saturday afternoon at
Riverview.
The Lady Indians crum-
pled in the fourth quarter,
allowing the Lady Rams to
steal a 43-37 victory.
Venice fell to 7-6 on the
season. Riverview improved
to 6-5.
Saturday's game was cer-
tainly within reach of taking,
but ill-timed turnovers down
the stretch ruined any chance
of that.
"We're taking some steps,
but we have a lot of work to
do," said Lady Indian coach
George "The Animal"
Stritz."We're a work in prog-


Callaghan

ress. We don't take care of the
ball. We make wrong passes
at the wrong time. We take
bad shots."
Venice tied the game at 30-


30 on Jamie Lane's free throw
early in' the fourth quarter.
The Lady Indians only scored
seven points the rest of the
way.
Riverview scored six
straight points to go up 36-30.
A running one-hander by
Lane, an off-the-glass jumper
by Marisa Callaghan and a
free throw by Chloe West
drew the Lady Indians to
within 37-35.
The Lady Indians had. a
chance to tie it, but Lauren
Ramey missed two free
throws. Riverview went up
39-35, but Diana Mehserle
had two free throws to close it
to 39-37.
Venice turned the ball over
on bad passes the next three
times it had possession.
Three players had nine
points apiece for Venice -
Lane, Callaghan and Sama-


ntha Worthington.
"We're a young team,"
Stritz said. "Natalie (Gaud-
reau) is out and Andrea
(Krankoski) broke her foot.
I'm proud o the girls. Our goal
is to be ready for districts."
Venice is off until Dec. 27
when it plays in the Willie
Clemons Scholarship Holiday
Classic at Southeast High.
The Lady Indians open at 7:30
p.m. Dec. 27 against Gaines-
ville Eastside.'
VENICE 48, BAYSHORE 39
- The Lady Indians
outscored host Bayshore 19-7
in the second quarter, fueling
this victory on Thursday.
SamanthaWorthington led
the way with a dozen points.
Marisa Callaghan added nine.
Lindsey Riegsecker and Chloe
West had six points each. Kim
Pinkerton had five. Diana
Mehserle had four.


Lady Indian booters beat Port Charlotte for win No. 10


STAFF REPORT


The Venice High girls soccer team
was on cruise control Friday night in
Port Charlotte.
The lady Indians registered win No.
10 on the season with a 6-1 victory
over the Lady Pirates.
Controlling play from the.opening
kick, Venice (10-3) broke the ice early
in the half when sharpshooter Andrea
Thomas scored on a pass from Kristen
Johnson, who had a goal and three
assists on the night.
Towards the end of the first half,
Indian pressure forced a foul in the
box on Amber Clark and Kristina
Swanson converted the penalty kick
for a 2-0 halftime lead.
The second half was more of the


same and then some, as the flood-
gates opened early' for the Lady
Indians.
Three minutes into the half,
Johnson crossed the ball and Mariel
Delehanty headed it in for the score.
Midway through the half, Johnson
made a nice back pass drop to fresh-
man striker Lauren Little, who ripped
a shot for her first goal of the season.
The end of the half ended with two
beautiful through-ball passes leading
to goals. The first was from Kara
Ferretti to Johnson, and the second
was from Delehanty to Clark.
Goalkeepers Meghan Dunn and
Daiana Lanbrecht shared the net-
minding duties. Port Charlotte scored
on a long high shot that floated high
over Lanbrecht's head midway


through the second half.
Indians freeze Bobcats, 2-1
North Port's Kalina Dejoy scored
the only goal for the Bobcats in their
2-1 loss to Venice on Tuesday night at
North Port.
Dejoy's goal came in the 14th
minute of the game and put the
Bobcats (4-5-2, 2-4-2 District 5A-12)
up 1-0.
Venice dominated play from the
beginning and throughout the half.
but was unable to put one by the
formidable North Port goalie Cat
Love.
With 10 minutes left in the first half,
a 35-yard free kick high into the goal
by Kristina Swanson tied the game.
In the second half, the Lady


Indians fended off North Port's intim-
idation tactics by continuing to domi-
nate possession.
Midway through the second half, a
corner kick by Kara Ferretti caromed
off a crashing defender to give Venice
the lead for good.
Midfielder freshman Emily
Cremisio shook off a fist to the face
and continued to shine for the Lady
Indians.
Striker Kristen Johnson and mid-
fielder Chelsea Rose helped push the
offense for the Indians and defenders
Katie Sweeney, Liz Walchle, Ashley
Kaiser, Khan Nguyen and Janelle
Coyle were rock-solid defensively.
"I told (the girls) at halftime that we
were plating our best game of the sea-
son" said Venice coach Joe Ferretti.

MORE PROOF OF CHIROPRACTIC'S EFFECTIVENESS
Increasing numbers of studies have been conducted in the past few years that provide ever more proof that
chiropractic treatment is especially effective in treating lower back pain. The latest of these studies shows that
spinal manipulation helps to relieve lower back pain fastest in patients who meet a certain criteria. The study,
involving military personnel with lower back pain, showed that spinal manipulation was "highly effective" in those
who experienced four out of five of the following: lower back pain that lasted no more than sixteen days, no pain
below the knee, a willingness to return to normal activity, stiffness in the lower spine, and relatively good'rotation
of the hip.
If the lower back pain symptoms do not start to abate within one to two weeks, maybe it's time to see a
chiropractor. Because the causes and the seriousness of different conditions are so varied, it is important to
pinpoint the cause and begin the most appropriate treatment.
At TWIN PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH CENTER, our concern is the total health of our patients. A
continuing schedule of regular chiropractic check-ups can help detect, correct, and maintain optimum spinal and
nervous system function. We offer massage therapy and have 2 licensed massage therapists on staff. Please call
941-412-3800 to schedule an appointment. We're located at 1214-C Venice Av. East.
P.S. If lower back pain lasts more than three days, consider scheduling an appointment with a chiropractor.

Workforce housing proposed in North Port


A Sarasota developer will donate land for more
than 1,200 modular homes selling for less than
$200,000.


BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER

City workers, teachers,
nurses and other critical-
needs employees must have a
place to live.
The soaring cost of North
Port housing has driven mid-
income families out of the
market. For example, a three-
bedroom, two-bath hoine
that once cost a police officer
or teacher $160,000 now sells
for more than $260,000 six
times a city employee's annu-
al salary.
Sarasota developer Frank
Menke, who is responsible for
selling land to Wal-Mart and
Home Depot in North Port,
says he has a solution to
North Port's need for work-
force housing.
The Frank Menke Organ-
ization is promoting the con-
struction of two Toledo Blade
area developments featuring
modular homes with walls
strong enough to withstand
140 mph winds, china sinks
and top-of-the-line appli-
ances.
Plans for high-quality
manufactured homes near
the Toledo Blade Boulevard
corridor include 486 town-
houses in Largo Preserve,
whith borders the Creighton
Waterway, and 783 town-
houses in Truman Park,
which is along the Twin Lakes
Waterway in North Port.
All 1,269 townhouses are
three-bedroom and two-and-
a-half baths with a garage.
They will range from 1,600 to
2,000 square feet and will sell
for less than $200.000.
."The Truman Park and
Largo Preserve will span 1,269
townhouses, which provide a
market-driven solution to
affordable housing needs,"


according to information
submitted by Menke. "These
townhouses are mainte-
nance-free, with ,a low-cost
fee structure to keep the
neighborhood and town-
houses looking great year
'round."
City commissioner Bar-
bara Gross said the city needs
workforce housing in addi-
tion to Riley Chase and the
newly opened Grand Court
apartments.
"The city commission have
been supportive in trying to
find more workforce housing
for residents," said Gross. "We
have been looking for new
approaches to affordable
housing in the city. We know
how important it is to find
places in the city for our
employees, police officers
and teachers to live. They are
the backbone of the city.".
What buyers get
Menke estimates the aver-
age electric bill will cost $100..
The homes will have Moen,
faucets; ceramic tile in the
foyers and bathroom; a Gen-
eral Electric washer and
dryer; impact-resistant glass
and sliding-glass doors: a
refrigerator, range, dishwash-
er; and ceiling fans.
Each will have a 30-year
roofing system, cathedral
ceilings, carpet and a 40-gal-
lon water heater.
Menke said his project will
allow customers to build a
"dream home" that exceeds
their expectations.
The homes will have ac-
cess to sidewalks and future
shopping areas (Lowe's, sit-
down restaurants and banks)
and be within walking dis-
tance of Toledo Blade Ele-
mentary and the proposed
middle and high schools near


PHOTO COURTESY OF FRANK MENKE
The Truman Park and Largo Preserve development (1,269 townhouses) planned for North Port will be built in 2006. These
homes, near the Toledo Blade corridor, will cost less than $200,000.


the Panacea development.
In addition to these town-
houses, Menke donated land.
for a future fire station, a
YNICA, a library and a learn-
ing center to help residents
with after-school programs
anrd potentially provide a
pool, weekend activities and
perhaps a clubhouse or com-
munity gathering room.
The fire station land was"
provided at no cost to the city.
There will be a loop roadway
provided to minimize traffic
impacts at. Price and Toledo
Blade boulevards. Houses are
backed up to city waterways
on both sides. This will mean.
no intrusions to adjacent
neighborhoods.


Menke's information said
this is consistent with the cur-
rent long-term plans for the
activity center at Toledo Blade
and Price boulevards design-
ed by the city planning de-
partment.
Commissioner Vanessa
Carusone said these homes
will help attract working peo-
ple. Carusone said her only
concern is the monthly main-
tenance fees that will be
charged to residents.
"If they are reasonable, like
we've been told, then I think
this will truly be affordable for
residents," she said. "This (the
two proposed developments)
is more than a person would
get if they were buying a stan-


dard manufactured home."
Once the project is approv-
ed through the city, NMenke
expects construction to begin
in early 2006. The modular
construction process will
enable all 1.269 homes to be


built within 36 months. They
will be on sale in early 2006.

Terry Morrison of Sun
Coast Real Estate was installed
as secretary of the MLS board
of directors during an installa-
tion banquet on Dec. 6.
Morrison has been an active
Realtor in the Punta Gorda
area for three years and
recently acquired her broker's
license. She has also been
selected as broker/manager of
the Punta Gorda Sun Coast
Real Estate office.
DufIy's Realty Station in
Port Charlotte raised $400 for
charitable causes at its annual
Christmas party. The group
donated $160 to Big Brothers
Big Sisters, $145 to an emer-
gency veterinarian in Port
Charlotte, $60 to hospitalized
children and $35 to buy a gift
for Danny Matteson, an
Englewood youngster suffering
from kidney and bladder
problems. The gift was to help
keep Matteson entertained
while.he is going through
dialysis.
Duffy's also maintains a
drop-off box for hospitalized
children at its office, 8252
Wiltshire Drive. The phone
number is (941) 698-1500.
Two faculty members at
Florida Gulf Coast University's
School of Nursing recently
. passed the national certifica-
tion examination, becoming
among the first successful
candidates in the United States
to earn the new Certified Nurse
Educator designation from the
National League for Nursing.
Elizabeth Murray, assistant
professor and coordinator of
the accelerated Registered
Nurse to Bachelor of Science in
Nursing program, and Mary-
delle Polk, professor and
coordinator of the nursing
graduate program, both
received the Certified Nurse
Educator designation.
"In September, 218 academ-
ic faculty convened in Balti-
more to take the examination,"
School of Nursing Director
Karen E. Miles said. "This,
examination communicates to
students, peers and the
academic and health care
communities that the highest
standards of excellence are
being met."
According to the National
League for Nursing
(www.nln.org), certification
distinguishes nursing educa-
tion as a specialty area of
practice and an advanced
practice role within profession-
al nursing. It recognizes the.
academic nurse educator's
specialized knowledge, skills
and abilities and excellence in
practice, strengthens the use of
core competencies of nurse
educator practice, and demon-
strites a commitment to
professional development,
lifelong learning and nursing
education as a career.
Dean of the College of .
Health Professions Denise


Heinemann said the achieve-
ment is "one more jewel in
FGCU's and the School of
Nursing's crowns."
Dr. Kenneth P. Walker,
district president 6f Edison
College, received the 2005
Annual Business Building
Leadership Award from the
Chamber of Southwest Florida.

ed during

Economic
WALKER Outlook
Conference
on Dec. 13
at the,

College
campus in
Fort Myers.
PETERSON The award
Recognizes
distinguished business and
community leaders for their
personal and organizational
leadership, management and
advocacy resulting in a positive
contribution to the region and
its econom..
In announcing the award,
chamber President and CEO
Steve Tirey said, "The Business
Building Leadership Award is a
tradition established by the
Chamber of Southwest Florida
over the last half decade. The
chamber believes that recog-
nizing an individual who
exemplifies community
leadership from our region is
central to reinforcement of the
notion that Southwest Florida
is a collection of quickly
evoling communities within a
regional fabric. We are all one
regional community bringing
our hopes, dreams and
aspirations to this paradise we
call Southwest Florida."
Walker's personal and
professional mission in life has
been about making higher
education available to allwho
seek it in Southwest Florida,
the chamber noted in press
release. Under his leadership,
the college is dedicated to the
philosophy of providing top
quality education in a friendly
atmosphere with individual
attention to the needs of
students.
Walker is the seventh
recipient of the award, follow-
ing Jim Nathan, president of
