New VRMC ortho unit is officially open


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS! COLUMNIST


Two hundred people gath-
ered for the official opening of
the newly remodeled ortho-
pedic and neurosurgery unit
at Venice Regional Medical
Center Monday, part of the
facility's $10 million hospital
upgrade.


"Venice has always been a
marvelous community with
excellent medical staff, and
you deserve a first-class hos-
,pital," said Joseph Dumbac-
co,. chief executive officer and
president of Health Manage-
ment Associates, which ac-
quired the former Bon Se-
cours Venice Hospital 10
months ago.


Before cutting the ribbon
officially open the new unit,
he commented, "Sooner or
later most of us end up being
patients. When you have the
attitude that you want to treat
the patient who comes here*
as if it were you or your moth-
er, then you're going to have
wonderful quality."
The orthopedic and neu-


rosurgery unit is in its third
year as a five-star program,
and the hospital has just been
notified it is in the top 10 per-
cent in outcome perfor-
mance in the nation.
"We rate No. 1 in Sarasota,
.so you don't need to look
anywhere else for health care:
it is all right here," exclaimed
Melody Trimble, VRMC CEO.


Supported byVRMC board
members and watched by
guests, Michael Jaquith, or-
thopedic surgeon and board
member, cut the ribbon offi-
cially opening the new unit.

What does former city,
council member lim lMyers
think of reports die city never
intended for the Venice
Community Center to be a
hurricane evacuation shelter?.
"1 am really pissed off
about this." Myers said. "It
was my 110 percent under-'
standing this was how this
would be used. It would even
be pet friendly....
"When we went out to sell
this bond issue, we made this
point very clear.. ... I put my
word to it, and my word is my
bond."

Five years ago, Myers was

2003 bond referendum for
$10 million paid for much of
that cost, along with three

So recent revelations VCC

Myers angry. Added to the city

Shortfall in Laurel water project


BYGERALDA. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


Higher-than-anticipated
construction costs to install
water lines to 160 homes in
Laurel have Sarasota County
officials scurrying for funds to
complete two projects.
The situation corresponds
to one disclosed earlier this
month in Nokomis. Residents
there discovered that bids to
build water lines to 715 prop-
erties came in more than 75
percent above original esti-
mates.
New estimates for proper-
ty owners in Nokomis rose
from an estimated $3,000 to
$4,000 to $6,100 to $7,400. In
Laurel, the rise was from

them into the city in order to
avoid the growing tap-in
costs.
City Manager Marty Black
pointed out the Nokomis
properties do not border city
limits, and that Venice is not
competing with the county to
provide water services.
"These people are coming
to us because they're so mad
at the county," Black said.
"They are frustrated."

to the county public works
department. The situation in
Laurel is apparently no differ-
ent.
According to county esti-
mates, total costs for Laurel
are at $1.2 million and avail-
able funds are $600,000.
"What a mess," Sarasota
County Commissioner Shan-
non Staub wrote in an e-mail.

STAFFWRITER


Sarasota Commissioner
Shannon Staub and other
board members were not
happy when a staff recom-
mendation was dropped in
their laps during the board's
meeting Tuesday.
The staff recommendation


from County Attorney Jorge
Fernandez and County
Administrator John Wesley
White called for the county to
hire a year-round state lobby-
ist for $100,0,00. The lobbyist
would serve only the county's
interests. The recommenda-
tion included two other
options. The first called for
paying $25,000 to $50,000 for a


part-time lobbyist to focus on
specific issues. That option
might mean facing conflicting
interests from the lobbyist's
other clients.
The second option at
$50,000 to $70,000 would
have the county contract the
services of a lobbyist or train a
county employee specifically
to lobby. Fernandez and
White suggest this option
again could lead to conflicts


of interests or time training a
county employee for the job.
Right or wrong, that was
too much and too fast for the
board to make a decision.
"Number one, we are
jumping very quickly, and I
am not pleased in receiving
this, this morning, at all,"
Staub said, stressing the "not"
in "not pleased."
The board, however, did
not completely kill the issue.

New leads few in 1991 murders


Family hopes publicity will trigger witnesses.


BY GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER

Dec. 19,falls just six days
before Christmas, but for the
Rubertiello family of upstate
New York, it's the worst day
of the year.
They never forget that. it's
the anniversary of the day in
1991 that their retired parents
were murdered in their Port
Charlotte home.
They never forget that the
killers then drove to a North
Port house where they mur-
dered a father and three chil-
dren.
Most of all, the family never
forgets that the case remains
unsolved.
With each passing year,
detectives say, ew leads get
fewer. Typically, a few calls
come in after newspapers
publish stories about the
murders on the anniversary,
said North Port Detective
Randy Ruth.
, But usually, the calls don't
provide information about
specific suspects in the case,
said Jim Myers, a Florida De-
partment of Law Enforcement
agent also assigned to the
case. -
"It bothers me a lot," said
Duane Rubertiello, the oldest
of Paul and Rita Stasny's two
sons and three daughters. "It
should have been solved a
week after it happened."
Possible suspects
Detectives believe they
have identified five suspects
who may have been involved
in the killings, including two
teenagers suspected in the
shootings, Myers said.
The rampage began about
1:30 a.m. that chilly, moonlit


morning when someone cut
the phone line to the house of
the Stasnys' neighbor and life-
long friend John Reynolds.
The killers then left
Reynolds' home and drove
around the block to the next
street over and cut the
phone line to the Stasnys'
house.
They then shot Paul Stasny
through a window and went
inside and shot Rita Stasny,
in the face, said Duane Ru-
bertiello.
They also shot and killed
the elderly couple's aging
golden retriever, Pepsi.
After ransacking the house,
the suspects then drove a
little more than a mile to U.S.
41, crossed the four-lane and
headed north up Chamber-
lain Boulevard. Near the
Charlotte-North Port border,
one of the killers tossed a wal-
let belonging to Paul Stasny
out the window and into a
canal. Police later found it
lying on top of some weeds.
That and ballistics tests link-
ed the two crimes.
Another cnme scene
The home of Luis and
Donna Villegas in North Port
is about the same distance
from U.S. 41 as the Stasnys's
home, and it was a similar
color, yellow.
The assailants cut a phone
line to that house and enter-
ed shooting.
Donna Villegas awoke,
grabbed a cordless phone
and was able to call 9-1-1 as
she ran' from the house,
screaming that her familyJ
was being killed. The phone
was connected to a second
line the killers had missed.
North Port police arrived


in about four minutes, fast
enough to smell gun smoke
in the air, but not fast enough
to catch the suspects..
Instead, they found Vil-
legas' husband, 37-year-old
Luis, and her four 'children,
Revonda Peay, 13, Billy' Ray1
Hall, 11, Richard Peay, 8, and
9-year-old Jawantis Peay, shot'
"execution-style" in their
bedrooms, according to a
police report. Only one of the
children, Jawantis, now 23,
survived.
Donna Villegas could not
be reached for comment at
her North Port home.
North Port police Capt.
Robert Estrada says he will
never forget the night the
murders occurred. In fact, he
said, he still dreams about
it.
At the time, Estrada had 10
years of police experience.
"I remember being in the
house when a police radio
went off, and (Jawantis)
opened his eyes," Estrada
said. "We thought he was'
dead.
"Iwas pretty surprised, and
I said, 'We have a live one.'"
What still disturbs Estrada
is the way the children were
killed.
"The person or persons,
who did this had a total disre-
gard for life. The intent was to
kill everyone in the house," he,
said.
"As time goes on, you get
discouraged."
Questions remain
,The Rubertiello family
doesn't understand why the
evidence gathered wasn't
enough to make a case against
the suspects.
They also don't under-
stand why the FDLE shunned
past requests to get the case
profiled on a television show


such as '"America's Most
Wanted" or "Unsolved Mys-
teries."
"I think that, if it was put
on TV, it really, really might
help," said Dwight
Rubertiello, Duane's brother.
"I watch 'Forensics Files,'
and they solve everything,"
added Duane Rubertiello.
But the Port Charlotte-
North Port murders don't fit
the profile of the cases solved
on TV Myers said.
Typically, such programs
work to publicize descrip-
tions of missing fugitives,
witnesses or evidence to a
nationwide TV audience.
In the local homicides,
detectives believe there's a
only a small number of peo-
ple who know about the
suspects' roles in the crimes.
To date, they've resisted re-
vealing the information, even
with the enticement of a
$10,000 reward, which re-
mains available.
"What we need is for those
people who know something
to come forward," he said.
In the mid-1990s, investi-
gators formed a task force
with former Charlotte Coun-
ty prosecutor Sherri Chap-
pel, who is now a federal
judge, to see what would be
required to make a case
against he suspects.
"Whatever 15 (police offi-
cers) in a circle could come
up with, we did," Myers said.
Detectives continue to
submit evidence to new
forensics testing methods.
For example,. a few years
ago, evidence with multiple
fingerprints was submitted
to new tests to "back out",
suspicious prints from others.
Also,'the streaks made on
bullets and shell casings
seized in the case were plac-
ed into a nationwide data

sister and stepfather, 14 years ago this week.


bank, Myers said.
Detectives also submitted
a tape of Donna Villegas'
9-1-1 call to audio testing so
background noises could be
isolated in hopes of finding
something that would iden-
tify the attackers.
Rare weapons
- The Rubertiellos were pre-
paring to drive to Port Char-
lotte to visit their parents for
the holidays when a deputy
called to notify them of the
murders, recalled Karen Ru-
bertiello, Dwight's wife.
The family instead had
the chore of .cleaning up
their parents' bullet-riddled
house, Dwight said.
"It was horrific," he said.
In the late 1990s. detec-
tives released photos of rare
guns stolen from the Stasnys
during the crime, hoping
someone would recognize
them.
Paul Stasny had brought
the German-made "drilling"
rifles home after his service
in .World War II. Sporting
both a double-barrel shotgun
and a rifle barrel, the guns
were decorated with etch-


ings of deer and hunting
scenes.
Twice, detectives traveled
to Ohio and New York to
show family members guns
they'd recovered in the in-
vestigation, but they weren't
the Stasnys', Duane said.
Still on the case
Estrada, the North Port
officer, said he knows there
are people who know what
happened that night. He
would like them to come
forward.
"I believe it will be solved,"
Estrada said.
"You never give up hope,"
Myers said. "I can tell you
there is not a more import-
ant case to me than solving
this case. If I retire after 30
years, there would be a void
in my career if I didn't do
my part to solve this case."
Myers has two years to
go.

Waterford withdraws


Commercial Mixed Use request


Redevelopment of the Historic Apartment District continues with the filing of the latest rezbn-
ing application. Ten apartments, three one-story duplex homes and a single-family home all
could be replaced with condominiums, if approved.


Apartment district
continues changing
The latest proposal to re-
develop Venice's Historic
Apartment District has start-
ed through the approval
process.
Staff review has begun for
developer Kevin Ward's new-
est project. Ward has asked
to rezone 1.3 acres of land
along Park Boulevard, Me-
nendez Street and Palmetto
Court from moderate density
(maximum of 13 units an
acre) to maximum density
(18 units per acre).
In previous interviews,
Ward indicated his intention
to build a project similar to
what he's doing across the
street along Menendez and
Park. He received approval in
early November to demolish
14, one-story rental units
that listed for less than $600
per month and replace them
with a four-story complex
with nine units selling for
more than $1 million each.
The most recent spot is at
225 Park Blvd., 528 Menendez
pt., .and 454, 456 and 458


Palmetto Court. All existing
buildings are one story and
include 10 apartment units,
three duplexes and a home.
Staff comments on the
proposal are due back by
Dec. 22. A date has not been
set for when it will appear
before planning commission.
In the 1920s, original city
planner John Nolen mapped
out the apartment district for
workforce and rental housing
that encompasses the area
bordered by Granada Road,
Harbor Drive, Armada Road
and Park Boulevard, accord-
ing to the historical marker
at John Nolen Park. By 1928,
there were 11 apartment
buildings along Menendez
and Armada, and nearly every
one of them remain operat-
ing as rental housing.
None of the buildings slat-
ed for demolition is consid-
ered historical, despite being
within the apartment district.
Gift for workers
All of the department di-
rectors were called together by
City Manager Marty Black for


a stressful meeting Monday
about the upcoming 2006-07
budget.
At least that's what they
thought. In reality, they were
handed nearly 350 holiday
greeting cards for city em-'
ployees. Each one of them
contained a $25 gift certifi-
cate to Publix.
While. that may not sound
like much, City Clerk Lori
Stelzer said that has never
happened before during her
17 years working for Venice.'
The idea came from the city
manager, and only fellow
charter officers and city
council knew of the gift.
E-mail letters of thanks
poured into the city Tues-
day about what a nice surprise
the. card and gift certificate
was.
Black is authorized to
spend up to $10,000 without
city council approval, so the
more than $8,000 in gift cer-
tificates didn't require formal
council approval.

BY JJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Out,of concern there is not
enough Venice City Council
support, Waterford Compan-
ies officially withdrew its
rezoning request for a Com-
mercial Mixed-Use district on
the island.
This decision comes on
the heels of council members
accepting Waterford presi-
dent Mike Miller's request
for a public workshop next
month to find out what they
might approve for his 3.5
acres between U.S. 41 Busi-
ness, Venice Avenue Bridge
and the Intracoastal Water-
way.
The workshop already has
generated questions about
whether Miller and his Ven-
ice-based development com-
pany are receiving preferen-
tial treatment.
City Manager Marty Black
said they're not, because this
property is Venice's main
gateway to the island and
Historic Downtown Venice.'
"That is why it warrants
this much attention," Black
said. "If (the workshop) does-
n't work, fine. I'd rather try it
one more time to see what
the public discussion is than
not."
Treatment of Miller's land.
the new CMU zoning district
and the workshop have creat-
ed concerns for at least one.
council member: Vicki Taylor,
who along with John Moore
and Rick Tacy, voted against
CMU a month ago. It passed
4-3.
The law is so unclear, none
of the parties involved is sure
what a CMU requires, Taylor
said.
"The three of us that did
not vote for it, it was because
it was so vague," Taylor said.
"And now we have to have a-
"""fl''


workshop, and we're going to
wind up having a workshop
on every developer who
wants to do a CMU."
Using the CMU
As of now, no other devel-
oper has filed an application
for CMU zoning to allow
entertainment, retail, resi-
dential and more uses all to
occur in the same building.
The city manager said Gulf
Coast Community Founda-
tion of Venice is thinking
about using CMU for its 146
acres along Laurel Road.
Venice and GCCFV remain in
annexation discussions.
Other spots in North Ven-
ice along Knights Trail' and
Laurel roads also would be
suitable, Black has said in
previous interviews, but the
city has not officially identi-
fied any spots.
As CMU relates to Venice
island, Taylor said the major
issue is not the number of
uses. The problem is with
Waterford's intention to con-
struct seven-story buildings
that step down to four stories.
"Right next to the bridges
there, having a seven-story
building is not very attrac-
tive," Taylor said.
The date for the public
workshop has not been set.
According to Black., public


comment will be allowed-
and Waterford's presentation
time will be limited.
The city manager added
that Waterford will bring two
sets of concept plans, one
based on CMU designs and
another that's a residential-
based development minus
the 180-space public parking
garage.
Black believes the most
important part of this work-
shop is to find out if city
council wants a transient,.
retail-based development on
the island that will generate
a lot of sales-tax revenue, or
a residential-based develop-
ment. CMU zoning is not
needed if Waterford only
builds condominiums and a
restaurant, which Miller said
is his most basic proposal
for the 3.5 acres. .
When asked for his per-
sonal opinion, Black said he
thinks the development
should be a balanced mix of
residential and commercial.
"(The workshop) is almost
a prehearing,- preapplication
hearing," Black said. "It's not
promising the developer
what will be approved."

Oak Park South finds a new home


Thomas Ranch donates 33 acres adjoining Taylor
Ranch Elementary, creating a buffer bordering
the proposed Tuscano golf course community.
Another 6 acres is earmarked to serve Oak Park
South students with physical and mental needs.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WR[rER
The Sarasota County
School District just received
an early Christmas present in
the form of 39 acres. It was a
last-minute offer by Taylor
Ranch, requiring all parties
to be "agile," said Ken Marsh,
long-ange planning director
for the district.
Marsh outlined an offer by
Fourth Quarter, Properties,
owners of Taylor Ranch. to
donate 39 acres contiguous
to Taylor Ranch Elementary
School. The offer was made
in November, but legal doc-
uments sealing the deal had
to be signed and delivered
before the end of the year,
presumably to reap tax bene-
fits, or the offer was off the
table, developers told Marsh.
The school board happily
accepted Fourth Quarter's
donation Tuesday at a special
meeting.
Most of the land borders
the west and south sides of
Taylor Ranch Elementary,
creating a buffer for the pro-
posed Tuscano golf com-
munity that will be home to
1,500 new residences just
south of the school. The coun-
ty approved the Tuscano
project back in June 2004..
Room to grow
Thirty to 40 percent of the
property is wetlands, which
could provide hands-on ex-
perience for biology and en-
vironmental classes.
Marsh said a 12- to 15-
acre tract of buildable land
would most appropriately be
used to expand Tayl6r Ranch
Elementary in another five to
10 years.
"It's possible that eventual-
ly Taylor Ranch Elementary
will eventually need a new
classroom wing and expand-
ed playing fields to accom-
modate -increased enroll-
ment," Marsh said. "We will
look at that once we have
the additional parcels and
revisit the school's master
plan."
Move the bamr
One requirement for the
donation is the bus com-
pound adjoining the school
will have to go.
March said the district
was already considering a hew


location for the South County,
bus barn. This deal just
moved that along a. little
quicker, he said. The barn's
new location has yet to be
determined.
A second condition re-
quires another, smaller par-
cel of donated land be used
for a school that serves special
needs students.
Marsh told the school
board he made the special
needs proposal for a second
20-acre parcel, but the district
was granted only 6 acres.-
Combining the donated land
with the abutting 4-acre bus
barn property would provide
a 10-acre lot on whichto build
a new South County school
serving students with special"
needs.
New Oak Park South
SMarsh said it was very like-
ly that Oak Park South would
serve as the core for a new
South County school serving
special needs students. He
said the district is planning
on building in six years.
The district needs five
years just to get the new
construction project onto
the state's capital list be-
fore a project is eligible for
state funds. But that could
change.
"South County needs a
facility to accommodate
physically and mentally chal-
lenged students," Marsh said.
"Were we to build, (this prop-
erty) would meet the criteria
established by the donor."
Oak Park South is a satellite
school in South County that
serves less severe physically
and mentally handicapped


students. A new South
County school for special
needs students would serve
its current 60 students and
open up enrollment to more
severely handicapped pupils
-who are now transported to
Oak Park School on Proctor
Road in Sarasota.
Oak Park South, which
opened its doors just last
year, is currently located in a
classroom wing on the Ven-
ice Middle School campus,'
with eight portable class-
rooms just outside Building
5.
School administrator San-
ford Bowen said he was de-
lighted with the news.
"I think it's wonderful.
The north campus outgrew
their facility, and it is such a
long bus ride for the stu-
dents in South County,"
Bowen said.
"We only serve the emo-
tionally handicapped be-
cause don't have facilities for
the physically challenged or
mentally handicapped or
blind or profoundly handi-'
capped students. Until we.
have a regular facility we
won't be able to serve those
students."'
V\MS is expanding also
and I'm sure would love to
use the space, he added.
YMCA
South County Family
YMCA will receive the other
14-acre parcel adjoining the
6-acre lot in front of Taylor
Ranch Elementary off U.S.


41. The district and YMCA
signed agreements granting
each other nonexclusive
easements to and from the
parcels., The agreements give
both parties dual access
points to the parcels.
Surprise.
Board members quizzed
Marsh on the deal as it relates
to impact fees and concur-
rency laws about to take
.effect, which Marsh said were
not discussed. It does not
affect either, Marsh said.
The school district must
.still get county approval to
rezone the parcels for gov-
ernment use and incorpor-
ate the donated land into a
single property for the school.
Board member Laura Ben-
son said she was a little dis-
appointed the board hadn't
had the opportunity to dis-
cuss the deal in more detail,
but 'understood the time
constraints. Some of the con-
tracts were available for re-
%iew only minutes before
the meeting.
"This is a big decision,"
Benson said. "With this:
agreement we're saying this
is where a South County
school for special needs stu-
dents, will be. These are
long-range plans requiring
thoughtful decisions. In the
future, let's hope they don't
come as such a surprise."

SHELTER from Page A


tion..
The $4.8-million project
was built to withstand winds
through Category 3 strength,
but it is up to the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs and the American Red
Cross to determine if it would
ever actually be used as a
shelter.
Council memberVickiTay-
lor was elected to council.
when the bond which also
paid for beach renourish-
ment, a new fishing pier and
Tramonto Vista Park -
passed in November 2003.
Should the DCA and Red
Cross deny VCC status as an
evacuation shelter, Taylor will
be upset because she and oth-
ers were assured one could be,
built onVenice island.
"That would bother me, if
it's not used," Taylor said. "We
wanted a shelter within city
limits, and there could've
been a better place for it, but


they said it would be fine."

From 'never' to 'maybe'
City Manager Marty Black
acknowledged Tuesday an
"error" may have occurred
when the city's spokesperson
told reporters Dec. 13 and the
Bond Oversight Committee
last Friday that the city "never
in any terms" promoted the
VCC as any type of shelter -
evacuation or post-storm
recovery.
Black clarified that while city
spokeswoman Pam Johnson's
statement may be true of offi-
cial city campaign literature in
2003, that does not guarantee
every person promoting the
bond issue stuck to Venice's
campaign material.
Former city council mem-
ber Jim Myers, who led the
VCC renovation and expan-
sion effort, talked for two
years before the vote about
making it a hurricane shelter.


"Ultimately, there was a
commitment to design and
build a shelter, and we did
that," Black said.
All of this talk about how
the city sold the bond issue to
voters evacuation shelter,
post-storm shelter or no shel-
ter at all is irrelevant to the
city manager.
"To me, it doesn't matter
because we've done it," Black.
said. "The, concern would be
if we did not (build) it.
"If I had the ability to go
back and couch it a little dif-
ferently, I would. I think we
are all a little jumpy coming
off of eight hurricanes."

Education
When the bond campaign
kicked off, many people still
thought Venice was immune
to hurricanes. There hadn't
been a severe hurricane here
in more than 30 years.
But then the 2004 and 2005


hurricane seasons sent eight
major storms across Florida,
the most devastating being
Charley striking Punta Gord4
to the south.
Council member John
Moore said it wasn't until
those autumn 2004 storms
that hurricanes became real
once again. Moore was build-
ing a new house on Venice
island in May 2004, and
skipped installing hurricane-
proof windows in order to
save $12,000.
He regrets that decision
today.
"Remember, all of those
storms came after, and boy,
did we ever get an education
on hurricanes," Moore said.

Counting pennies
All of this raises questions
about whether the city ever
actually needed the $10 mil-
lion bond referendum. So far,
Venice overestimated costs


on three- of four bond pro-
jects: the fishing pier, beach
renourishment and Tramon-
to Vista Park.
Only the community cen-
ter has come in over budget,
at $4.8 million. Early esti-
mates, before talk of making
VCC a hurricane shelter, were
about $2.5 million.
"We were off the mark on,
three of the four projects, so
who knows. ... (The bond)
was a good deal," Moore said.
"We got a good value on all of
the projects."
Final price tag of $4.8 mil-
lion has many people won-
dering, especially since Ven-
ice only received $253,000 in
Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency grant money to
make VCC a shelter.
Only $1.8 million of bond
money went toward renovat-
ing VCC, with the other $3
million coming from city,
county, state and private


donation and grant sources.
The city' manager could
not say how much of the $4.8
million is directly connected
to making VCC a hurricane
shelter, but he did verify that,
it cost more than than the
FEMA grant provided.
Black emphasized that
Venice did not spend almost
$5 million for a shelter it may
never be allowed to use.
Instead, the, city created
one of the premier gathering.
places in all of South County
- capable of handling con-
certs, festivals and many
other events. :
"That was the primary
purpose for doing this," Black
said. "We didn't just build a
shelter. We built a community
center for all of South County,
one that was greatly needed."

help hurricane victims,"
Bratcher said. "The people in
the community were aware
that we were running behind
so they have been very gener-
ous this year. We have been
ahead the whdle season."
While needs escalated
elsewhere because of the vio-
lent weather patterns experi-
enced in the Southern states
the past tw? years, local needs
did not diminish. More than
500 families have been helped
locally during this Thanks-
giving.and Christmas season,
Bratcher said.
"We had 300 here .for
Thanksgiving dinner," he
said, "and 700 childreia will get
Christmas presents. With the
parties we have had, probably
1,000 children in all will
receive gifts. And then there
are the seniors. We gave them
parties and gifts and took
more than 1,000 gifts to nurs-
ing homes."
. More than 300 families will
receive Christnias dinners
and gifts for their children.
Pots of gold
The annual kettle drive
makes it possible to meet
these and other needs that
occur in the; area, including
hurricanes, tornadoes and
forest fires. Drought-fed forest
fires destroyed hundreds of
acres in North Port a fewyears
back.
Maihing .the kettles from
10 at-"'to.9 plm. daily is a big
job. There are 16 kettles in the
three-city area.:Twelve, are
manned full-time. Four of
these have become church
projects for members of the
Venice-Nokomis Methodist
Church, Grace United Meth-
odist Church, St. Marks Epis-:
copal Church and the Church
of the Good Shepherd.
"The most consistent is the
Venice-Nokomis Church,
which has taken every hour
for the kettle at the Publix in
the Nokomis Village Shop-
ping Center," Bratcher said.
"Their members work in two-
hour stints."
In addition to the church-
es, Riverside Bank employees
have worked nearly every day
at a kettle and the'Early Bird
Kiwanis Club of North Port
has manned a kettle just
about every day. Members of
Venice and Englewood Rotary
clubs have each done two
Saturday.
Employees 'of the stores
where kettles have been
placed also have volunteered
to ring bells. Other volunteers
have filled in the other time so
that only six to eight people
had to be hired to supple-
ment the volunteers for the
entire season, Bratcher said.
Bratcher said the goal was
to replace the money sent
outside the community and
with the money in the kettles
and other donations that
have been earmarked for the
local office, the Salvation
Army of Venice may come
close.
One company donated
$2,500 collected from its
employees. They donated it to
the Salvation Armybecause of
articles in ,the newspaper,
Bratcher said.
Kettles are at all the Publix
stores in the three cities, at
Wal-Mart and Big Lots in
Venice and at Winn-Dixie in
North Port.
"All the money stays right


here to help with Christmas
and with disaster relief," he
said. "The people and the
stores have been so gener-
ous."

City needs to address VCC shelter issue


City officials have been offering a sim-
ple explanation for why the Venice
Community Center hasn't been and
may never be -certified as a hurricane shel-
ter: It isn't .supposed to be one.
A post-storm emergency shelter, maybe,
but not a hurricane evacuation shelter. And,
they maintain, it was never their word -
represented to the public during the bond
issue campaign that it would be anything
else.
As we say around the water fountain here
at the Gondolier Sun, au contraire.
In fairness, it appears to be true that none
of the official marketing materials for the $10
million bond issue that helped pay for the
renovations to the VCC mentions its becom-
ing a hurricane shelter. And it might might
- be the case that the city officials who went
out to sell the bond issue to city residents
didn't say it would.,
But Jim Myers certainly did, early and
often.
Myers was on city council when he made
the renovation of the VCC his pet project. He
thought the 30-plus-year-old building was
inadequateto meet the growing demands on
it and was rather dated-looking besides.


So, in 2001 Myers was appointed chair of a
committee to come up with plans to make
the center bigger and better, and find the
money to do it with.
He got the county to kick in $500,000 that
had been earmarked for the construction of
an amphitheater that had never been built
and likely would never be. Some private
donations trickled in.
And then the possibility of getting federal
money for "hardening" the center as a hurri-
cane evacuation shelter came up. Given the
property's location and elevation, it was .a
questionable idea at best, but one made
attractive by the prospect of tapping into a
pot of federal money.
As we reported in our Jan. 16-18, 2002,
issue, several months after Myers' committee'
was formed and almost two years before the
bond referendum:
"Venice's Growth Management Director
Marty Black and Director of Public Safety Joe
Slapp are scheduled to meet with Federal
Emergency Management officials Feb. 20.
"If FEMA finds that the renovated com-
munity center could serve as a hurricane
evacuation shelter (our emphasis), both it
and the American Red Cross may have funds


available for the work.
'We're reasonably certain that that will
occur,' Myers said of the hurricane shelter
designation."
Whether that determination was made or
not, FEMA did give the city a grant of about
$250,000 to harden the building, and the
work was performed. The building is sup-
posed to be able to withstand 150 mph
winds.,
And that's what the city is hanging its hat
on: We got FEMA money to harden the cen-
ter for some emergency uses, and that's what
we did.
The problem is, the term "hurricane shel-
ter" was clearly being used to mean a shelter
to go to before a storm, not after.
It appeared in so many stories that what-
ever happened during the course of the bond
campaign is almost academic by then
Myers had ingrained in voters' minds they
would be getting a hurricane evacuation
shelter, among other things, if they approved
the bond issue.
If the term didn't mean a place to evacuate
to ride but a storm, some city official should
have said so then. But no one ever did, or
asked for a correction or clarification. Why


did the city.officials who knew the "truth"
remain silent?
The closest anyone has come to an expla-
nation is Marty Black telling us in November
that the city might not have been as clear
about its intentions as it could have been.
Maybe that's why two council members -
and a number of letter writers and Let'em
Have It callers have said their recollection
agrees with what we reported then and what
we're reporting now?
All that leaves us with a few.more ques-
tions. First, did the city get FEMA money
under false pretenses?
Second, did Venice voters approve the
bond under false pretenses?
Third, how much FEMA money did the
city get, and how much extra cost went into
"hardening" the VCC to get it? The project
cost was estimated at, about $2.5 million
before the "hardening" changes were pro-
posed. The final cost -which included other
changes as well was nearly $5 million.
And, most important, where are the peo-
ple who thought they would be able to take
shelter from a hurricane in the VCC sup-
posed to go?
We deserve some straight answers.


A time to put


faith into action


ED MARTIN
C( UFLMNIST


We have a tradition in our
family of celebrating at this
time of year with friends of
several faiths.
There are a number of
common themes in major
religions. Among them are:
belief in a creative power or
principle, which is known by
different names; belief in
developing family and com-
munity based on love, com-
passion and charity; and ask-.
ing for forgiveness for sin.
The theologian Paul Tillich
defined sin as separation:
separation from God, separa-
tion from others, separation
from self. Together, our
friends unite in celebrating
our shared humanity, build-
ing bridges across religious,
racial and ethnic differences.
The winter solstice has
been significant to people of
differing beliefs beginning
earlier than Judaism, Chris-
tianity or the more recent
Islam.
Many ceremonies have
marked the shortest day and
the longest night. Most have
involved light, and we have
recognition of that in such
forms as the burning of the
yule log, the star of Beth-
lehem and the candles or
lamps of Hanukkah.
In each of these cere-
monies and others practiced
around the world currently or
in the past, the symbolic mes-
sage is light conquering dark-
ness, a metaphor for good
conquering evil. The new
birth of a messiah, the mira-
cle of light in Hanukkah -
each offers the promise of
new beginnings, new hope.
There are ways we can par-
ticipate in this new hope in
our own lives and in our city
of Venice. In the phrase of the
song, "Let there be peace on
Earth and let it begin with
me."
It is the nature of an opin-
ion column that there can be
no unanimous agreement,
but the discourse can be
about ideas and not personal


attacks. I remind myself of
that in this season.
There is a group called the
Venice Interfaith Community
Association. Its membership
includes seven churches or
religious organizations and
several other organizations
that support the goal of
spreading understanding, ap-
preciation, respect and good
will among people of different
faiths. There is also a growing
number of individual mem-
bers.
People who are interested
can call (941) 496-8263. Mem-
bership is only $15 a year, but
people are always welcome to
attend their monthly meet-
ings. I think it is a good invest-
ment in personal growth and
in community.
On Jan. 15 at 4'p.m. at Naar
Hall of the Venice United
Church of Christ, the group,
which includes the Senior
Friendship Center: Faith in
Action program, will have a
celebration including food
from various faith traditions,
and entertainment from the
Venice High School Choir, the
Muslim Community of South-
west Florida, the Johnson
Memorial Baptist Church, the
Epiphany Bell Choir and mem-
bers of the Jewish Community
Center, the Baha'i Faith, and
the Sun Coast Cathedral MCC,
among others.
Tickets are $20 for this
wonderful celebration. For
tickets, call (941) 584-0063
and speak with Janet Onnie,
the volunteer coordinator for
the Senior Friendship Center.
The funds will be used "to
deliver relationships," as
Onnie said. The goal is to help
people stay in their homes as
long as possible in safety and
dignity with the assistance of
volunteers who might offer
assistance with food, trans-
portation and, most especial-
ly, with personal contacts that
counteract the isolation that
many older citizens face.
Home visits are made, tele-
phone calls are made and
bpth provide real relation-
ships. It is a demonstration of
faith in action.
There are many ways Ve-
netians can express their reli-
gious and moral values
throughout the year, but this
example seems to tie together
the important themes and
beliefs so many of us share
that I wanted to share it with
you.
Merry Christmas, happy

LETTERS FROM OUR READER


That's OK, it was a dumb idea anyway


Editor:
To the 53 percent of voters who passed the $10 million bond
issue for the Venice Community Center renovations, welcome
to the real world, where those in power can misinform
(referred to as lying, outside of political circles), dissemble and
twist the truth to get what they want from a gullible public.
Thank goodness for the Gondolier Sun's archives and the
auditor's report, all of which indicated that the plan was to use
the new center for an emergency evacuation shelter.
Sounded like a great idea to most voters, although I person-
ally wondered why anyone would feel safe on the island and
voted with the minority.
Oh well, government has never been known to overestimate
the intelligence of the voter.
It's too bad we weren't asked to vote on the purchase of the
infamous $4,000 Medjool palms on the island. I can imagine
being told that we would all be eating dates by now only to dis-
cover "there's been an awful lot of misinformation out there."


Jesus brought a
message of peace
Editor:
As soldiers are killed daily
and approval ratings fall
steadily, the commander in
chief persists in "staying the
course" in Iraq. I cannot help
but wonder how families of
those doing the actual fight-
ing and dying feel hearing the
president's words.
I cannot help but wonder
how soldiers on the ground,
who don't know whether
today might be their last day,
feel hearing those words. Do
they need to believe their
fighting and dying will some-
how have meaning? Do they
need to hang on to this belief
to keep their sanity?


If we heed the message, we
will understand there is no
peace through violence.
There is no victory over ter-
rorism through war. War is
only fuel for more terrorism
and, therefore, can never be
won.
There are other solutions.
Stand up for peace through
justice.

Wal-Mart prices paid

Editor:


American manufacturers
Diane Toth report abuse and pressure
Venice from Wal-Mart to produce
Wal-Mart-only products at


Meanwhile, here at home
we celebrate Christmas mea-
suring the "real spirit" by
whether Wal-Mart or Target
rang up the most in sales on a
given day. Carols blare
through store aisles ad nause-
am while the actual Christ-
mas story is reduced to a
mere fairy tale.
The babe in the manger
(where they allow it) is dis-
played next to Santa Claus
and the real message of peace
and justice seems to get tram-
pled underfoot by shopping
madness.
Do we ever stop long

babe in the manger came for
a reason, namely to change
our hearts? To implore us to
be our brother's keeper?


lower costs.
This pressure forces Amer-
ican manufacturers to pro-
duce for Wal-Mart at a lower
cost.
This practice is putting
tremendous pressure on
other retail stores like Kmart,
Sears and Target to sell at
below their cost.
The manufacturers have to
build additional processing
lines and printing machines
for Wal-Mart labeling with no
financial support from Wal-
Mart.
Wal-Mart controls these
manufacturers with volume
purchasing, squeezing out
the small business buyers.
This is causing many of the
smaller retailers' financial
crises when competing on


pricing over the holidays with
Wal-Mart.
This is a monopoly prac-
tice, and we must do our best
not to support it. If Wal-Mart
were to pull its large orders
from these manufacturers,
the manufacturers would
have to close shop. What a
double-edged sword!
When you are out shop-
ping this year, please look for
and buy American-made
products.
You may think you are get-
ting better prices from Wal-
Mart but at what or whose
cost?

Better things
to worry about
Editor:
Why do we have to worry
so much about whether
.someone says merry Christ-
mas or Kwanzaa or whatever
it is you believe in, when we
should be worried about all
our men in other countries.
After all, if our skin is removed
we are all the same.
None of our families was
American until the first peo-
ple came here.
I would hope everyone
would take the time they
spend on anger to think of
our men who are fighting to
keep America free.

Time to spiff up the Nokomis P.O.


Improvements needed.Yes, two subjects. Number one is the
area around the Nokomis post office in the parking lot a lot
of lights are burned out. Plus, the shrubbery and landscaping
are really nasty looking. Many people see this every day. The
lawn and facility is not in keeping with the tradition of the
Nokomis post office. It needs some tidying up, especially the
weeds and the trimming and painting. The parking lot is very
dangerous, especially in the evening. The second topic is in ref-
erence to the fire they had in Osprey this weekend. For the lack
of being able to get to it quick, what's the possibility:that they
put a fire truck at the 681 fire station, which is now stationing
ambulances there. Allow the Nokomis Volunteer Fire
Department to put a fire truck there. Also, allow the county to
collect the impact fees that are not being collected. That would
help pay for the extra equipment for the future needs,., espe-
cially with the area growing..


Priority seating. I don't
think that fiull-time resident
discounts should be given in
restaurants. I do, however,
believe that full-time resi-
dents being seated prior to
non-full-time residents
should be the precedent.
Stop knocking. I am so
tired of the people in Venice
knocking the tourists who
come down. Without the
tourists we would be up the
creek without a paddle. Just
remember that they were
,tourists before they became
full-time citizens. I don't find
any problem in the winter-
time with the tourists. Nlaybe
a couple of minutes, but that's
it.
And I'm tired of the senior
citizens being knocked as far
as their driving goes. Most of
them, three-quarters of them.
are better drivers than the
young people here. And I
mean the teenagers with their
radios blaring drive you
right off the roads. So please,
leave the tourists alone
because without them we'd
have much more restaurants
closed than we have right
now.
And as far as giving a dis-
count for full-time residents,
no. There are enough dis-
counts in the paper for senior
citizens and for all people in
the city of Venice. And thank


you and a Merry Christmas to
all.
Wrong answers. Goodness
gracious, you've done it again.
You cannot keep die cross-
words corresponding with the
answers. In today's paper, the
Dec. 9, you have the wrong
answers again. I do rinot
understand what is such a big
problem with people to do it
right.
Did it again. Well, you did it
again. You printed the Friday
crossword puzzle in a size
that onl0ya man with a magni-
fying glass could read, and
then you printed the wrong
answers. I don't know what
I'm gonna do with you.
VHS on the move. I'm call-
ing in regards to the article On
the front page of the Friday,
Dec. 7, paper about Venice
High- School being on the
move. In your article you are
right that the board has stated
that there has been talk but


there is no actual proposal
put in place for a new school
location. These rumors have
been circulating for quite
some time and the reason I've
called the Let'em Have It line
is that I didn't want to put my
name on a letter to the editor,
but I've actually spoken to
developers in the area, one in
particular that has definitely
said that they've had talks
with Dr. Norris, they've had
dinner with Dr.. Norris, and
that it is something that they
are working on. So it may not
be something that is in writ-
ing, but it's definitely some-
thing that's being courted.
Early Christmas. The oil
companies are getting their
Christmas presents early this
year. They've raised gasoline
14 cents, so we are giving it to
them early. So by Christmas
they'll probably raise it again
to make more money for their
billions they'll make this
quarter.
Why unfinished? I. say
amen to the Pinebrook ekxen-'
sion. I can't understand why
that isn't done. I called two
months ago to complain and
now it's ridiculous. I just.wish
you could tell me why it isn't
finished.
OK for them. I see Bob
Vedder had to pay $115 for a
traffic ticket, plus $25 for dri-
ving school. I see Venice
police always roll through
traffic stop signs. But I guess
it's OK for them; they're
allowed to do it.

VCC can serve as an emergency shelter


Much has been said lately,
about the Venice Community
Center renovation and the
money spent to make it capa-
ble of withstanding up to a
Category 3 hurricane.
The site on which the cen-
ter is built is 19 feet above sea
level. It should be remem-
bered that Venice is not a bar-
rier island.
The $4.1 million project
,used ,money from the $10
million bond issue, donations
and grants. One of the grants
was provided by the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency for $253,095 to hard-
en the building.
Dan lohescu, the architect
who designed the building,
used appropriate Florida
Building Codes when design-,
ing the strength of the build-
ing as is done to schools for
use.as shelters.
"The building is construct-
ed to withstand up to 150


mph winds," he said. 'Along
with the engineering criteria,
we have hurricane-resistant
windows; we wired for an
emergency generator; and
installed voice annunciatorr
to use to give instructions to
those using the shelter. One
office was outfitted with an
independent electronic oper-
ating system to convert to
emergency power. We elimi-
nated about 20 rooftop air-
conditioning units and plac-
ed them inside the building
and its towers, so nothing will
blow off the roof during a
storm."
"This not only could be
used as a shelter in certain
circumstances, but after a
storm, they could continue to
use this building for recovery
efforts after the children go
back to school," Ionescu said.
. Mike Baltzer, vice presi-
dent of the contractor, Mag-
num Builders, explained how
the facility \vas rebuilt.
"\Ve reinforced the existing
structure, including some of
the walls, and added new
exterior walls around the
perimeter, giving the building
a lot more structural
strength," he said. "We
stripped off the roof deck in
the center area over the audi-'
torium, the most vulnerable
spot, and doubled the bar
joists which were originally
there. We prodded new metal,
roof decking of a sturdier


gauge and installed it to the
engineered requirements for
wind loads."
"One thing that really
helped was having a thresh-
old inspector on site," Baltzer
said. "A threshold inspector is
an independent engineering
agency which reviews and
inspects the structural work
to ensure it is being done to
specification. Because this
was a remodel, they were able
to identify existing deficien-
cies that needed reinforcing
as we did demolition. This
enabled us to build beyond
and above what the code
requires."
The city's role was to create
a building qualified to serve
as an emergency shelter
under certain conditions. The
city does not operate ai y
public shelters,. but cooper-
ates in the coordination of
emergency preparedness
with Sarasota County Emerg-
ency Operations, and its poli-
cy board, to ensure services to
the public are designed to
best meet the needs of the
community with all local,
state and national assets.
The city continues to pur-
sue the final inspections and
certifications from the state
and American Red Cross that
will allow it to be used as an
emergency facility.

Homeowners scared by rising costs, diminishing returns


BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
STAFF WRITER
What would you say if your
insurance company tripled
your policy cost to $3,000 for
your $100,000 home, yet when
it was destroyed by a storm
they would only pay you
$30,000 for it?
That is what could happen
to thousands of manufac-
tured-home owners under
the current insurance crisis
overtaking Florida. Hundreds
of homeowners came out
Wednesday to find out what
their options are.
In a meeting at LaCasa
Park, more than 350 people
heard from agent Jon Ruggeri
why the insurance industry
is in such dire straits.
The audience came from
many area manufactured-
home parks. They were all
worried about what will hap-
pen with their insurance.
"I got a notice of non-
renewal from Liberty," said
Harbor Cove resident Carrol
Utz. "Luckily I was able to
get coverage from Safeway
- for this year, at least."
Many other residents told
similar tales their carriers
had cut them off and left
them high and dry.
The chances are good,
though, that the next brace
of hurricanes will not leave
them high and dry. Ruggeri,
a Sarasota agent, said that
we are entering a cycle of
more frequent and more
intense hurricane activity,
according to most experts.
"Manufactured homes
constructed prior to tougher
post-Andrew codes that are
located within 10 miles of
the coastline will suffer hor-
rendous damage," Ruggeri
said.
Much or most of that
damage may not be paid by
the usual private insurance
companies.
Ruggeri said that, 'After
Andrew, the state formed an
insurance company now
called Citizens. It's a high-
risk company."
Citizens, unlike some
companies, will not insure to
the replacement value, only
the depreciated value. So for
a home built in 1970 that

insurance for their homes.


would cost $100,000 to re-
place, the owner 'may only
see $30,000. That has many
owners scared and angry.
"I'm losing customers
every day," Ruggeri said.
"They get canceled by their
insurers and they just decide
to go without. It costs too
much for too little."
Residents are clearly frus-


treated because they feel there
is nothing they can do.
Sharon Davidson, a resi-
dent of Harbor Cove, asked,
"What if I make improve-
ments to my older home, like
strengthen the tie-downs to
bring it up to code: will that
help?'
"Unfortunately, no,"
Ruggeri said. Carriers are sim-


ply erasing older units from.
their books.
"How did we let insurance
companies get so powerful?"
one resident asked.
Ruggeri explained that
insurers are businesses like
any other company. They
set aside some of the money
they receive as premium in a
"surplus fund" that they use
to pay claims. But they also
get their own policies from
other companies called
reinsurance to cover the
risk of loss above the surplus
amount.
' Coastal areas like Florida
now are seeing such stagger-
ing losses, said Ruggeri, that
reinsurers are turning the
front-line insurers. away, or
the cost of reinsurance is so
high, it is no longer worth it
to write new policies. The
companies are also passing
along those costs on to all
of us.
Ruggeri also urged own-
ers to "get flood insurance. If
you are in Evacuation Zone
1 or 2, you will be swamped
by a strong storm."
"There are a few bright
things on the horizon,"
Ruggeri said. "There is a
movement in Tallahassee to
try to make policy deduc-
tibles per season, rather than
per event."
There are also lobbying
groups such as the Federation
of Manufactured Homeown-
ers of Florida (frno.org) that


try to educate legislators on
the need to act.
Ruggeri also said that if
owners band together
through a group like FMHO,
they can take action such as
starting a bus caravan or a
letter-writing campaign to
let their elected officials
know how they feel.


"The bottom line, though,"
Ruggeri added, "is that there
is no easy fix, and we will
all pay higher costs for the
privilege of living in a storm-
prone area."

Have a merry (and safe) Christmas this year


BY SHELLY JANKE
STAFF WRITER


Before you string up that
last cord of twinkle lights,
make sure you've taken
appropriate fire safetypre-
cautions this holiday season.
i Each year, Christmas tree-
rdlated fires cause deaths,
injuries and millions of dol-
lars in property damage
nationwide.
According to the Sarasota
County Fire Department, 40
Christmas tree and candle-
related fires occurred in the
county during the past three
seasons, totaling $240,970 in
property losses.
Most of those fires were
attributed to electrical arcing
in lights, cords and plugs,
according to county fire offi-
cials.
County Assistant Fire Chief
Michael Suarez said that peo-
ple often get a little overzeal-
ous with their holiday decora-.
tions.
"People connect too many
lights together with frayed
wires and no one uses break-
ers," Suarez said.
And those scented holiday
candles won't do any good in
a room full of smoke.
"Candles are a leading
cause of fires during any time
of the year," Suarez said.
"People light candles and
they walk away from them.
You should only use candles

The following fire safety
tips were provided by
Sarasota .County Fire Chief
Brian Gorski:
Use safety-tested and
appropriate tree lights, both
indoor and outdoor.
Never use electric lights,
on a metal tree. .,J
Never use lights with
worn, frayed or broken cords
or loose bulb connections.
Always unplug Christmas
tree lights before leaving
home or going to sleep.
Never use candles to dec-
orate a tree.
Keep live trees as moist as
possible and water them
daily. Do not purchase a tree
that is dry or dropping nee-
dles.
When purchasing an arti-
ficial tree, be sure it is labeled
as fire-retardant.
Make sure the tree is at
least 3 feet away from any
heat source and try to iposi-
tion it near an outlet so cords
are not running long dis-
tances.
Do not place a tree where
it may block exits.
Safely dispose of the tree
when it begins dropping nee-
dles. Dried-out trees are high-
ly flammable and should not
be left in a house or garage, or
placed against the house.
Extinguish all candles
away from items that are
flammable and use candle-

this holiday season, equip
your home with working
smoke alarms and fire extin-

mark. Also, if the batteries in
your smoke alarm were not
changed in fall, do it now.
Suarez said fire safety often
comes down to common
sense, and knowing when to
let go of that ancient set of
holiday lights.
"Be safe," Suarez said. "We
try to use those dollar lights
for 10 years. If your set of
lights shorts out, just get
another one.".

The Venice High girls soc-
cer team played hard in the

Ladv Indians played well in,
their three matches.
They won one by a land-
slide, lost a heartbreaker, and
tied another,
However, the tourney rec-
ord of 1-1-1 wasn't enough
to get Venice out of pool play
and into the Premiere Divi-
sion A semifinals.
"The saddest part is the
better team is not moving
on," said Lady Indian coach
Joe Ferretti of the evenly
matched pool.
Venice opened tourney
play Monday with a 2-2 tie
against Cocoa Beach at the,


Sarasota High football field.
On Monday night, the Lady
Indians dropped a 1-0
decision to Sarasota at the
17th Street complex. Ven-
ice pounded Westminster
Academy 6-1 back at the 17th
Street field Tuesday after-
noon.
Cocoa Beach finished first
inpoolplaywith a record of 2-
0-1. Cocoa clinched its spot in
the semis with a 3-1 victory
over Sarasota Tuesday.
Sarasota was second at
1-1-1. The Lady Sailors ad-
vanced via tiebreaker, hav-
ing defeated Venice head-
to-head. Venice was third
in the four-team pool at
1-1-1. Westminster was fourth
at 0-3.
Venice (11-4-1) is now off
until Jan. 3 when it plays at
Bayshore.

very strong in the lower to
middle weights, went on a

feated St. Petersburg- North-
east, 45-28; Seminole, 72-6;

The Lady Indians dominated
play in this match played on a
chilly night at 17th Street, but
Sarasota cashed in on a goal

Lady Indian forward Kristen
Johnson. "They got a lucky


goal. Their goalkeeper was
outstanding."
A tie in this this match
would have advanced Venice
out of pool play and into the
Premier A semifinals.

Neither Tamiflu nor any of the

It would take a highly,
trained musical squid to do
what Gary Lesher does, but
that squid might as well be
deep-fried and dipped in
marinara sauce during a
Lesher performance.
With his archtop Dean,
Lesher comes from a talented
family of musicians. His
grandmother played piano,
his mother played guitar and
his brother played drums.
Lesher plays all of the above.
".We were like our own
Partridge Family,'." Lesher
jokes.
Lesher, 54, started out jam-
ming with friends on his
porch on the west side of.
Cleveland. He taught himself
everything except for some
training on the stand-up bass.
In his teens, Lesher played
bass in a band called The
Chevelles. He's performed
with polka, Irish and rock
bands back in Cleveland.
He was able to findworkas
a musician, whether it was as
a session player or perform-
ing at gigs. His work as a ses-
sion player includes bass on
the Mcbonald's commercial
that featured the song 'You
Deserve A Break Today."
He came to the Port Char-
lotte area in 1983 because
there were limitless opportu-
nities for musicians' in the
area back then. The younger
crowds w-ould come out in
droves because. they loved to
dance and hear live music.
Live music could be found
almost every night of dithe
week. When Lesher moved
here he was in a group called
Third Street Exit. After that he
was in a duo .called the Dock
Boys. When neither project
panned out Lesher decided to
strike out on his own. Luckily,
he is self-sufficient when it
comes to working alone. His
song library resembles a full-
length novel.
"1 have a photographic
memory," Lesher said. "I can
replay a song in my head.",
He can learn every part of a
song in a couple of hours,
which comes in handy when
building his repertoire. A
knack for remembering
words also helps with his
craft. It's no wonder he has
these abilities because his
influences include a progres-


sive collection of King Crim-
son, Adrian Belew, Chet At-
kins and Pink Floyd all
bands that have some virtu-
osity.
It would be nice to play all
the good music that he pre-
fers, but Lesher likes to play
just about anything, especial-
ly if it gets people on the
dance floor. It's one of his
pleasures along with many
other musicians, to put peo-
ple in a good mood. That's
partly why Lesher has a good
reputation with all of his
clients in the area.
"To be successful you have
to make a niche for yourself,"
Lesher says.
It's one of the biggest rea-
sons he's able to keep doing
what he loves.
On a Saturday evening
Lesher plays anything from
Carlos Santana to limmy Buf-
fett. Playing "Nlargaritaville"
every- night is not his idea of
fun, but his ever-expanding
song-list includes just about
everything. It doesn't matter if
it's George Thorogood, Frank
Sinatra or beer barrel polkas.
His song list even spans dif-
ferent cudtures and he likes a
good challenge from the
audience. People try to stump
him with a request on a regu-
lar basis and, most of the
time, he knows how to play it.
Even if he doesn't, he'll sure
He has enough original
music to fill an album and is
currently working on one that
will showcase his blend of
styles.
"They're a mixture of
musical styles," Lesher said.
He once operated a small
studio of his own during the
'90s called Spinnaker Record -
ing, but decided performing
was his forte. Performing is a
matter of ease for Lesher. He
keeps his setup simple so he's
able to set up, play and pack
up quickly. He uses a synthe-
sizer combined with a Mini-
Disc player for a back-up
band. NMiniDiscs help Lesher
catalog his "back-up" band.
His guitar along with a bass
and drum tracks and two key-
boards comprise his "band."
. You may have seen him on
TV performing the opening of
Chef Rolf's "New Florida
Kitchen" or at Saltwater Cafe
during Sunday brunch or
Saturday evenings. Lesher
performs at the cafe, located

books, music recordings and.

Battling the common



told while training


Watching the bike path


J.J. Andrews
BACK OF THE PACK
L '" -
Scratchy throat. Stuffy
nose. Tired all the time.
It's cold and flu season
again, and just in time for the
holiday season when large
groups of people many
with runny noses gather in
airtight rooms and shopping
'malls to share germs.
Boy, I really love Christmas.
T;, here's been plenty of gen-
.eral misery floating around
the newspaper office because
of illness. Not sure if it'~ the flu
or common cold, but i'm see-
ing quite a few tissues being
used and many others just
.trying to get through the day.
* It's been like that at The
TFiancee's workplace, also, and
.sickness finally caught up
with her late lastweek. I spent


the weekend brewing up tea.
and medicine as she used her
days off to rest up. All she had
the power to do Sunday was
watch TV .something no
human being should ever be
forced to do, according to her.
So it's really no surprise
that by Sunday night, I was
feeling a bit worn out. The
sore throat, slight cough and
nasal congestion started
creeping in.
By no means was I bed-
ridden, but that coupled with
the rain Monday morning
was more than enough to
keep me in bed instead of
running Hatchett Creek
Bridge repeats with Venice.
Runners Group at 6 a.m.
Sorry, guys. I was sleeping
in, resting up so I could make
it through my workday.
Run or not to run
All of this brings up th e
question of working out while
battling sickness. According
to my online runner's ency-
clopedia runnersworld
.com a "case of the sniffles
shouldn't stop you from run-
ning."
'OK. So Monday's skipped
workout was just an excuse to
avoid running bridge repeats
in the rain.


However, viral infections
are the ones that create the
most concern. Skip running if
experiencing these symp-
toms, and consider seeing a
doctor: fever, deep body
aches and malaise.
Runnersworld.com's
advice is to use extra caution.
If symptoms are above the
neck, it's probably a cold and
you're OK for easy runs.
Below the neck, like chills and
body aches, wait for symp-
toms to pass because it could
be the flu.
The advice I've been given
is if there's any doubt, always
consult your doctor. Any per-
son with other medical con-.
ditions heart problems,.
high blood pressure, etc. -
needs .to practice extra care
during any type of workout if
they're also feeling ill.
As for me, however, it looks
like my trading should be
back on track, and I'm out of
excuses for skipping runs
when it's cold and wet.

Venice Police Department join bike patrol volunteers


STAFF REPORT

On Dec. 10, officers Phil
Phillips and Paul Joyce of
the Venice Police
Department Marine/Parks
Patrol led members of the
volunteer VWP Trailblazer
Bike Patrol on a ride. The
Trailblazer. volunteers are
part of a program created
by Venice Area Beautifica-
tion Inc. (VABD, a nonprofit
organization, in partner-'
ship with the VPD and
Sarasota County.
In addition to their
marine duties, the VPD
Marine/Parks Officers


patrol theVW1 otherVenice
parks and the downtown
area on bicycles. During the
ride the group stopped at
various points on the trail
for the officers to provide
safe riding instructions, dis-
cuss the relationship of the
volunteer bike patrol and
VPD and; to demonstrate
the operation of emer-
gency call boxes.
About 5 miles of the
west side of the \IWP along
the Intracoastal Waterway,
from just north of the
Venice Avenue Bridge to
Caspersen Park, are now
open. On the east side side,


3 miles are paved with .2 to
be completed to provide a
path from the Venice Train
Depot to Shamrock Park.
The volunteer bike
patrol started with five
members in January 2005
and now has more than 50
members. They act as a
neighborhood watch for
theVWP and provide infor-
mation to park users.
If you are interested in
joining the bike patrol, call
VABI at 488-2236.

Stay active
through the holidays
Florida Department of
Health Secretar-y Ml. Rony
Francois, M.D., M.S.P.H.,
Ph.D., recommends celebrat-
ing the upcoming holidays
the healthy.way by incorpo-
rating physical activity and.
health eating, including a
variety of fruits and vegeta-
bles.
"Since the holiday season
is a time for good fellowship
and. food, I encourage
Florida's residents and visi-
tors to find a balance between
food and physical activity,"
Dr. Franqois said. "Physical
activity is the solution to the


problem of most chronic dis-
eases, such as obesity. It is
important to attempt to take
a few extra steps during, and
especially after, the holiday
season to help offset the extra
treats we all enjoy during this
time of year."
In 2004, 36.8 percent of
adult Floridians were over-
,wteight and an additional 22.8
percent were obese a 66
percent increase since 1986.
The Department recoim-
mends the following healthy
tips during the holidays:
Dance or exercise to your
favorite holiday music.
Make a NewYear's resolu-
tion with friends to start a
daily walking group.


Be physically active to
avoid or relieve the holiday
stress.
Stick to your regular exer-
cise routine as much as possi-,
ble. Especially during the hol-
idays, plan your physical
activity routine in advance.
Mark it on the calendar and
consider it as important as
any other appointment.
To encourage physical
activity after the holidays, Dr.
Francois announces the
upcoming Step Up, Florida-
On Our Way to Healthy
Living! statewide campaign,
which promotes physical
activity and healthy lifestyles,
for Floridians of all abilities,
in February 2006. This is the


third year the event will
sweep Florida to showcase
the. variety of unique local
opportunities each county
offers for physical activity.
Each of Florida's 67 coun-
ties will partake in the month-
long relay celebration as par-
ticipants along four routes
pass a "fitness flag" from
county line to county line. The
kick-off e'ent will take place in
Hillsborough County on Feb. 1
and all four routes will end up
in Duval County for the grand
finale event Feb. 28.
This year DOH adopted a
new slogan for Step Up,
Florida! 60 A Day The.
Florida Way, to help partici-
pants implement' the United


States Department of
Agriculture (USDA) dietary
guidelines.
The USDA recommenda-
tions specify that 60 minutes
of moderate physical activity
each day will help manage
body weight and prevent
gradual weight gain for adults
and 60 minutes of moderate to
%igorous physical activity each
day is recommended for
youth.
For more information on
Step Up, Florida!. including
activity schedules, detailed
maps and event photos from
years past, visit the DOHWeb

Q 1 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
*AK7642 VAQJ o763 45
The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH .EAST
14 Pass 2v Pass
What do you bid now?.
A We know many players rebid a
six-card major suit regardless of the
rest of the hand, and indeed that
would be our choice if our heart and
diamond holdings were reversed. But
we think a holding of three of the
four top honors in partner's suit is
too strong to suppress, and our
choice would be three hearts.
Q 2 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
*KJ93 Q9542 o Void M A872
The bidding has proceeded:
WEST NORTH EAST SOUTH
1V 2o Pass ?
What action do you take?
A If you were even contemplating
bidding no trump, where is your
source of tricks? The general rule with
a misfit is to get out of the auction as
soon as possible, so pass and hope that
your scattered value are enough for
partner to scramble eight tricks.
Q 3 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:
* AQ10762 VKJ95 The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
14 Pass 24 Pass
9
What do you bid now?
A If you are among those who
alay_ riebid a six-card major, you
ha\ e no problem. On hands with 6-4
Jistrib toijon, . prefer tr, ing to dif-
ferentiate bcr. teen minimum opening
bids and better holdings. We think
this virtually all-prime hand with 14
high-card points and the ace in
responder's suit is better than a mini-
mum, so we would rebid two hearts


and then bid spades again.
Q 4 Vulnerable, as South you hold:
46 A 105 oAQ976 *KQ10 4
The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
10 14 2v Pass
What do you bid now?
A Your hand is too good for an
immediate heart raise. Bid three clubs
and, should partner then take prefer-
ence in diamonds, jump to four hearts
to pinpoint your spade singleton.
Q 5 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
*AQJ Q Q9732 o763 K6
The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
14 Pass 1IC Pass
20 Pass ?
What do you bid now?
A In the modem style, partner's
reverse is forcing to three of his first-
bid suit. As responder your first duty
is to rebid a five-card major, if you
have one. Start by rebidding two
hearts. Partner's next action will clar-
ify his distribution.
Q 6 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
*87 VK83 oJ10652 K83,
The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
I* Dbl ?
What do you bid now?
A When bidding at the one-level
over a takeout double, respond as if
the double did not exist. Had East
passed you would have bid one no
trump, so bid it now.

Stewart sat back and watch-

Music has been and will


always be Lesher's passion.
He's managed to sustain him-
self by doing the craft he loves
most. Not many people can
say that about their careers.
"I'll never retire," Lesher
said. "I'll still be playing from
a wheelchair."

in rural places, literally living
above chicken coops or in
similar situations. My daugh-
ter and I -stayed at major
resorts such as the Marriott,
the Ritz-Carlton and Sher-,
aton Laguna at Nusa Dua
where there would be virtuall -
ly no risk from contamina-
tion. We ate chicken sates in
both countries "without even
thinking about it because the
meat was cooked to high
temperatures for long
enough to kill any germs. In
Bali, they actually singe their
sates for the extra flavor that
imparts over and above the
taste of well-cooked meat.
-We did not eat sates pre-
pared by street vendors nor
.would we, although we did
take many photos of foods
offered by vendors along the
streets in Bangkok and Bali.
The World Health Organ-
ization. advises travelers to
avoid contact with high-risk
enironments in affected
countries. We certainly did
that. Nor did we eat under-
cooked meat from poultry.
Direct contact with infected
poultry, or surfaces and ob-
jects contaminated by their
droppings is considered the
main route of human infec-
tion, with the greatest risk
during slaughter, defeath-
ering, butchering or cooking


preparation of the birds.
There have been no incidents
in Bali, nor in Bangkok,
although several deaths have
occurred in rural areas of
Thailand and Indonesia..

Venice Gondolier Sun




SOUTH NEWS


FCAT testing not

alligned with college

preparation for high

school students


Leading the way at MCC winter graduation


LYNN REIFERT
CORRESPONDENT

Many Gondolier Sun read-
ers may be confused after
reading a 'recent education-
related article. The headline
asked, "Are South County
graduates ready for college?"
It stated, according to a
newly released Florida De-
partment of Education study,
only 54.8 percent of students
from Venice High School who
enroll in a Florida community
college are ready to continue
their education on a college
level. The county and state-
wide scores were 52.1 percent
and 44.8 percent.
The question of why so
many students appear to be,
ill prepared for college-level
coursework, and how to effect
a change in these dismal sta-
tistics, is now most likely on
the minds of many Florida
educators.
When asked, some area
administrators gave interest-,
ing answers to the first ques-
tion. One reason given was
that college placement tests
are not aligned with school
tests or curriculums. What?
Why not? Is this something
new?
Could this mean high
schools are expecting less
from students now? Are the'
high school tests and curricu-
lums changed in order to
graduate more students, leav-
ing them inadequately pre-
pared for college? Do high
schools and colleges have
completely different goals
and ideas of what is needed
for higher education?
Perhaps Florida high
schools have lowered their
expectations, while the col-
leges' standards have re-
mained the same, or in-
creased. In fact, it was report-
ed that some students who
passed the Florida Compre-
hensive Assessment Test
needed remediation classes
in our community college.
We do know that 81.7 per-
cent of Sarasota County stu-
dents graduate from high
school. But is that something
to be proud of? What does
that number really mean if
expectations for graduation
have been lowered so much
that students who do gradu-
ate and want to go to college
are not ready?
One high school honor
student made the comment
that students and teachers
were all "FCATed to death"
and that some of the teachers
seemed not to care about
teaching anymore. When
asked if she thought the cur-
riculum had been "dumbed
down," or expectations low-
ered just to pass students on,
she said, "Yes, definitely."
Another reason given by an
administrator was that stu-
dents were out of practice.
when they took the college
tests, because they took the
FCAT in the 10th grade and
didn't take the college en-
trance exam until right before
going to college.
Wait a minute. It appears
from the previous explana-
tion that the FCAT had little
worth, due to the fact that it
was not "aligned" with college
entrance tests. It doesn't make
sense that it would be benefi-
cial even if it were given a
couple of days before the col-
lege test.
Interestingly, this reason


coincides with the current
FCAT mentality, which focus-
es on crash courses to prepare
students to do well.
While it's true that practic-
ing for a test may help, the
bottom line is that one needs
to know the material on the
test, and have the problem-
solving skills to come up with
answers.
The parent of a local high
school student, who is an
educator himself, believes
that the main focus of our
schools is wrong. He says that
schools continue to attempt
to turn out more students
who are all the same. They are
feeding them information
and formulas and asking
them to remember and per-
form. He says it is more
important to teach them how
to think and solve problems.
High school principals
may be glad more students
are going to college, but col-
lege teachers and their stu-
dents are most likely very
frustrated.
Hopefully. in light of the
recent DOE study, superin-
tendents of instruction and
high school principals will
talk with college administra-
tors and come up with a plan
to make adjustments and
align their expectations.
They may want to begin by
taking another look at the
FCAT.

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 40%
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.

AROUND TOWN


FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL COLUMNIST

Welcome to

North Pole

south

While Venice is thdie Shark's
Tooth Capital of dthe World.
another name might be North
Pole south. Over the last few
weeks I've seen a lot of nice
people doing a lot of nice
things for a lot of nice people. I
think Santa has secretly set up
headquarters here.
The jolly man and his
helpers visited many places
making their lists and check-
ing them twice. He was seen
during the Venice NlainStreet
Christmas walk with children
running after him to make
sure they had a chance to talk
and hug.
I know Santa smiled when
he saw ludy Muller, Ginger
Nicoletti, Ann VanCott, Arlene
Sandberg, Redenta Picazio,
Ann Thompson and about 20
other First Mates from the
Venice Yacht Club packaging
all their homemade cookies
for deli-very to Hospice.
The omen delivered more
\tian 150 boxes in a tradition
that started nearly 20 years
ago by Donna Callin. Origin-
ally designed to be a simple
cookie exchange, die project
blossomed into a delicious,
feel-good annual event.

Santa visited with about 50
boys and girls along with their
parents and grandparents
thanks to LeisI Hillman,
Sandy Paschke, Kelly Chinyee
and Susan Sipe. These women
arranged a bagel-and-dough-
nuts breakfast in the Epiphany
Cathedral Cafeteria.
Boys and girls stood in line
to talk to Santa and make sure
he knew exactly what to bring.

I often think Santa lives in
Venice year-round under die
alias Rich Carroll. When it
comes to giving. Rich does it
every day as the great advo-
cate for Challenger Baseball
and children in general.
Each year Rich makes sure
about 150 boys and girls get
new bikes and helmets for
Christmas. While Rich orga-
nizes the event,. he couldn't
manage without the Venice
Police Department and the
Police Explorers.
Thanks to the generosity of
Tom and Judy Sigfried, Bob
and Mary Hastings, Robert
and Barbara Stanell, Michael
and Clare Dixon and Rick St.
George, Rich has $6,000 to
spend on bikes and gifts for
the children.
This year about 80 families
gathered in the hall at
Epiphany Cathedral to enjoy
pizza and hamburgers and to
receive the gifts and bikes. The
group also heard some nice
Christmas music thanks to the
Jaquith Family singers.
Bravo to everyone involved
with the event, including
Bishop Nevins for the. use of.
the facility.
*$***t
The special person of this
week is Jim Richardson, who
is also known at Venice High
School sports events as "The
Candy Man." Jim's son and
daughter were involved in
sports when they attended
Venice High.
Jim still attends most
games and always brings a
huge sack of candy for the
