Wharf extension to go tohearing


Although four commissioners say they won't vote
to approve a longer dock, John Konecnik will get
another chance to sell them on it.


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


Bowled over
A chili cook-off raised
temperatures and
money.


Due process prevailed.
After some debate and
pleas from residents, the
county commissioners
agreed Tuesday to allow the
owner of Fisherman's Wharf
to formally present a request
during a public hearing for a
265-foot extension to his
floating pier.


The board voted 3-2 (com-
missioners Shannon Staub
and Nora Patterson opposed)
to allow the public hearing to
go forward in order to avoid
accusations of not allowing
someone the right to have a,
request heard.
Residents of Harbor Lights
Mobile Home Park and from
across the IntracoastalWater-
way came out in force to
oppose the project at all levels


and were disappointed by the
board's decision.
Mary Scannell, who lives
across the water from the
marina, begged the board to
deny the request for the hear-
ing.
"I look out the window of
this little postage stamp of the
water and I don't see how
anyone can extend the dock
with good conscience," Scan-
nell said.
SLater she said she under-
stood the idea of due process.
but still opposes the pier in
any form.
Bill Hettler said he runs his
boat through die area regu-


larly and said having the pier
where itwillbe is "an accident
with a place.to happen...
Reduce it by half."
Two options
In the end, the board
members were only asked if
they were willing to hear the-
request, not to decide wheth-
er the extension of the 415-
foot pier had merit.
County- Attorney Steve
DeMarsh told them they had
two options.
The first, an ultimately the
option the board agreed on. is
to allow county staff to move
forward with a comprehen-


sive review of the permit ap-
plication, which would then
lead to a formal public hear-
ing at which the board would
vote to approve or deny.
The second option, which
Staub and Patterson wanted.
was to deny the application
based on the legal.principle of
administrative res judicata.
"We ha\e been told there
must be substantial change in
circumstances for us to hear
this again and that just didn't
happen," Staub said.,

Nokomis residents still try-
irig to get some answers to
how much they must pay to
get hooked up to water lines
may learn something tonight
(Wednesday).
Officials of the Sarasota
County Public Utilities De-
partment have been invited
to explain the situation to the
Nokomis Revitalization Ad-
visory Committee at the No-
komis Civic Center.
Residents of Nokomis and
Laurel learned last month
that construction bids to
build waterlines in both com-
munities came in more than
75 percent higher than origi-
nal estimates.
Bruce Dillon, chair of the
committee, said he was ad-
vised that the departmentwill
"turn out in force tonight. As
messengers of unpleasant
news, it appears they want to
provide additional informa-
tion to residents," he suggest-
ed.
He said the department
promised to offer a timetable
for two separate projects in
Nokomis.
Nokomis and Laurel resi-
dents have been in an uproar
since early in December,
when they were advised by


the department that esti-
mates mailed to 715 Nokomis
Homeowners last April of a
per-lot cost of $3,000 to
$4,000 had risen to $6,100 to
$7,400 per lot by December.
Owners of 160 lots in
Laurel learned two weeks
later that their costs to hook
up were also going up. The
rise in Laurel was $3,000 more
than the original estimate of
$7,000. One consequence was
dthi the county has been try-
ing to meet a shortfall of
about $136,000 to get two
projects started in Laurel.
'Doesn't add up'
Increased costs of asphalt,
piping and oil were blamed
for the bid increases by the
Public Utilities' Department.
But one Nokomis resident
questions that.
Joe Venuti, who lives on
Perkins Lane in southern No-
komis, said, "Those costs are
probably the tiniest part of
the total. The new bids are
almost double the original
estimates. It doesn't add up."
Dillon expects that the
committee will be presented
a timetable for improvements
on two portions of Colonia
Lane. The first portion runs
two blocks to Nash Street, and

Teen seriously injured in crash


SUN PHOTO BY GEORGE MCGINN
Rescue workers from the Sarasota County Sheriff's office
and county fire departments prepare a 15-year-old teen
for Bayflite. According to a Florida Highway Report: Tiffany
Tantaros, 15, was listed in serious condition after a car she
was in crashed on Interstate 75 southbound, mile marker
202. The driver of the vehicle, Leonard E. Tantaros, 18, of
Lehigh Acres, was driving in the right-hand lane when the
car veered to the left and struck another vehicle. Tantaros'
vehicle spun counterclockwise across the center and left
lanes, and off the road into the brush. The vehicle that
Tantaros struck continued south in 1-75. Leonard and
another passenger, Diane Tantaros, 42, were taken to
Doctor's Hospital. Tiffany was taken to Bayfront Medical
Center in St. Petersburg. There were no charges filed.

opment agreement with the
county commission. In addi-
tion to the 14 acres the YMCA
received, the Sarasota County
school district got 39 acres

Venice Avenue Bridge


painting to be


discussed today


Computer games


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

County officials are now
ready to present information
about the price for painting,
the Venice Avenue Bridge in
a similar color to the two U.S.
41 Business bridges.
County commissioners
meet at 9 a.m. today (Wed-
nesday) to get a presentation
from county staff about the
response to bids on three
alternative options for the
work on the bridge.
The session comes nearly
a year after the city of Venice
and Sarasota County com-
missioners last spoke directly
about the bridge and its ap-
pearance.
The board will then direct
staff to draft a joint participa-
tion agreement for approval
from the Venice City'Council.
City officials have been re-
luctant to accept any pro-
posal from the county in the
past two years.
The first alternative would
be to apply a finish to the
bascule piers and bridge rail-
ings for $80,112.
The second alternative
would be to apply a finish to
the bridge approach piers,
bridge end walls and retain-
ing walls for $70,137.
The final alternative would
be to apply a finish-to the
concrete beams, diaphragms
and deck for $16,146.
The commissioners could
opt for any or all of the al-
ternatives, which total more
than $166,000.
'In perpetuity
No matter what the county
commissioners decide, it will


_ ---- '

same!


not end the debate as the
commissioners will only of-
fer a proposal to resolve the
problems to the city council.
There is no guarantee council
will accept the alternative
chosen. It could also reject
whatever payment option the
staff recommends.
The county owns the 39-
year-old bridge but the city
hts complained that the
county did not get the work
done sooner.
Council also disagrees
with a county clause calling
for Venice to maintain the
finish and color of the bridge
"in perpetuity."
A 2003 renovation of the
drawbridge replaced its gears
and electronics and refur-
bished the bridgetender's
tower to make it resemble
the coral-colored Hatchett
Creek and Circus bridges on
U.S. 41 Business.
Those bridges were up-
graded by the state as part of

officials said parties to the
agreement needed to cross
their "t's" and dot their "i's"
before bringing it back to the
board at a future meeting.
The agreement would
'provide county funding to
the district to investigate and
implement, where possible,
an upgrade of electrical gen-
erator capacity at Elementary
School "H" under construc-


tion and Cranberry Elemen-
tary, both in North Port, and
Tatum Ridge Elementary
School in Sarasota. The
upgrades are needed to pro-
vide for air conditioning and
increased electrical capacity
for medical equipment when
schools are used as shelters
for persons with special
needs during emergencies..
Improvement plans -
the school board approved


annual improvement plans
for each school in the district.
All schools are required by the
state to submit goals for read-
ing and mathematics. Select
schools are required to write
goals for writing. All are
required to submit plans to
confirm with district-driven
goals. Local School Advisory
Councils helped write the

Skateboarding ban in city parks postponed


City council sends a proposed law ,
that would also restrict bicycles, smoking
and pets back to Parks and Recreation Board
for more tweaking.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


Skateboarders rejoice. You
can still zip across Centennial
Park on your board while
heading over to the ice cream
shop.
SAnd freedom also contin-
ues for in-line skaters and
bicyclists who use the path
winding through West Blalock
Park while riding to the library,
community center or art cen-
ter.
Smokers cani continue to
smoke on city park property,
and pet owners can keep let-
ting their dogs do their busi-
ness on the ground while out
for a walk as long as they
pick it up.
That's all because Venice
City Council sent anew parks
law that would have restrict-


ed those and many other
activities back to the Ven-
ice Parks and Recreation Ad-
visory Board.
The decision came after
the parks board recommend-
ed Monday that the rules'
be reworked, after numerous
complaints from the com-
munity.
There was one rule that
actually restricted when a
person can or cannot throw
balls or Frisbees in parks.
"We need to have some
common sense with this,"
Mayor Dean Calamaras said.
No deadline for the parks
board revisions were given.
The smoking ban only
would've pertained to areas
"within a defined perimeter"
used for "organized youth
activities." As for animals,
however, pets would be


prohibited from all city parks
and recreational areas ex-
cept for Paw Park, which is
designed for dogs.
"Any dog, cat or other
animal found in any city
owned, leased or operated
park ... may be impounded
and held in accordance
with the provisions of Sara-
sota County Ordinance No.
95-42," the proposed law.
states.
Chair Walt Jennings said
the parks board will work to
loosen the restrictions on
pets in city parks.
However, the board doesn't
plan on altering the ban on
skateboards, in-line skates
and bicycles in Centennial,
West Blalock and Patriots
parks.
"We will leave the skate-
boarding decision up to,
council," Jennings said.
Arson gets worse
The city is pleading with
residents to help catch the
person or persons responsible
for at least 10 fires at Pine-
brook Park in the- last seven


weeks. Arson is suspected in
every instance, but the police
and fire departments have
been unable to catch the
person responsible.
"Our guys are doing a great
job of getting out there and
getting it stopped," Fire Chief
Mike Johnson told council
members. "We need to get out
there and catch whoever is
doing it."
A reward is being offered
for information leading to an
arrest and prosecution. Those
with information are urged
to call the Venice Police De-
partment at 486-2444 or Fire
Marshal Jack Stevenson at
480-3030. Anyone seeing
smoke or fire should immed-
iately call 911.
There, was a rash of sus-
picious fires at Pinebrook
Park last spring. No homes
were damaged. According to
Police Chief Jim Hanks, these
latest fires are all happening
between noon and 2 p.m. on
Friday, Saturday or Sunday.
Hanks said there are sev-
eral suspects, but declined to
elaborate.

CAMERA from Page 1A
According to a county
release, the intersections
were selected for the program
based on traffic volume, crash
records, a lack of problems
with utilities and driveways
and ease of installing the
cameras.
Galloway added the Sara-
sota intersection had high


crash rates. The Venice inter-
section is right off Interstate
75, and prone to violators.
"We picked intersections
that weren't on the state sys-
tem," Galloway said.
According to the Federal
Highway Administration, a
2003 study attributed 206,000
crashes, 176,000 injuries and
934 death to motorists run-
ning red lights nationally.


"Some people don't want
to wait, and some people just
aren't paying attention," Gal-
loway said.
Red-light camera citations
are illegal in Florida, though a
legislative bill is seeking to
give individual municipalities
the right to enforce red-light
laws.
Galloway said the infor-
mation received from the


cameras would be compiled
and given to state legislators.
Last September, commis-
sioners passed a resolution
asking other cities and coun-
ties to join them in creating a
Green Light for Red Light
Camera Enforcement Coali-
tion, a county report stated.
The coalition would show
local government's support
for the authorization of using


red-light cameras.
Other Florida locations,
including Manatee County,
Orlando and Melbourne,
have installed test cameras.
"The data will go to our
Legislature," Galloway said.
"We'll get them some infor-
mation before the Legislature
starts."
Peek Traffic is installing the
test cameras free of charge,


Galloway said. The cameras
cost about $50,000 each. The
Sarasota camera is already
positioned, while the Venice
camera is slated to be erected
10 a.m. Thursday.
There will be no sign indi-
cating the cameras' presence.

wanting to move in Decem-
ber," Putman said. "We had
parties scheduled and did not
want to move while that was
going on."
Putman said the reason
the legion went to the city is
"because we were not getting
the response from the builder
(about problems) I thought
we should."
Scott said the contractor's
numbers and information
will be turned over to the city
this week for approval.
"I expect they should be in
the building within the next
30 days," Scott said.
No CO


Developer Mike Miller
wanted the current legion
property at 145 E. Venice Ave.
for his waterfront develop-
ment, so in May 2004 he
swapped a new building for
the old building and property.
The new legion building is
located on East Venice Ave-
nue and Auburn Road.
The city has so far refused
to issue a certificate of occu-
pancy for the new building.
Venice Building Official
Hans Behrens said he would
not issue a CO until some
drainage problems were tak-
en care of.
"The downspouts and gut-
ters," Behrens said. "They


addressed those issues and I
am satisfied."
Behrens said the other
drainage issue standing in the
way of a CO is elevation.
"The engineers said the
dirt next to the building on
the east side was higher than
the other side, which could
cause water to drain into the
building," Behrens said. "I do
not know whether that has
been corrected, I have not
heard from them."
Scott said the elevation
issue has been corrected.
No sick buildings
The downspout issue may
meet minimum standards,


Putman said, but he still has
some problems with the engi-
neering.
"I don't like the way the
waters coming off the roof,"
Putman said. "You've got
11,000 square feet of roof
emptying water into four, 4-
inch downspouts."
Putman has photos show-
ing the effects of water flowing
from .the downspout over the
sidewalk and into the parking
lot. They appear to show a dark,
possibly mold- or mildew-like
residue on the sidewalk at the
point of run-off.
"My primary concern is for
the safety of our members
and our guests," Putman said.


"If we are looking at a poten-
tial mold problem as a result
of runoff outside or inside the
building, that is not accept-
able. I don't want a sick build-
ing on my hands down the
line."
Photos taken last October
also clearly show where water
from a heavy storm has
leaked into several rooms in
the building, including the
kitchen.
."That has been taken care
of," Scott said.
Putman said there is no
way of knowing.
"We haven't had a heavy
rain since then," he said.
Several potential move-in


dates since March 2005 have
come and gone.
"We broke ground in
November 2004," CoertVoor-
hees, 1st Vice Commander
said, "and they said the build
would take about 300 days."
The most recent move-in
date was Nov. 11, to coincide
with Veterans Day.
The structure has been
completed for some time, but
the devil is in the details.
"We got a three-page
punch list that has to be ad-
dressed," Putman said. "We
are not moving until every-
thing is made right. The
membership is solidly behind
us on that."

"I think we should hear the

efit of going through hassle of
rehearing this."
Commissioner Jon
Thaxton said he has denied
the request for the pier from
the start and said Staub and
Patterson made a strong case
that "we have heard this and
should not be extending pain
and prolonging this.' Still, h '
said, "This ,i, needs due
process."
When the item comes
back, Thaxton said he would
again vote against the pier.

"Just to be sure, I'll give
them a chance to come back,"
he concluded.
History
SHoward Berna, a county
resource protection environ-
mental supervisor, gave the
board a comprehensive recap
of the history of the pier, say-
ing it first came before them
in 2002 and has since been
back at the staff or board level
11 times.
The original 686-foot long
pier was applied for and
Denied outright in December
2002.
It came back before the
board in July 2004 and the
board sought request for a
modification to reduce the
'pier to 415 feet. That item was
approved 3-2 two weeks later.
Brenda Patten, an attorney
representing the marina,
argued the effort to deny the
application based on res judi-

cata "is unprecedented and
unwarranted. The state says
to use res judicata with
extreme caution, it is an
extreme remedy," Patten said.
She claimed there is no
authority under code by the
board or staff to refuse to hear
a petition.
Lucky seven?
DeMarsh argued that the
reason to deny should be
based on whether there are
substantial changes to the
original application.
Patten argued there have
been seven changes, some of
which have been added since
the application was filed with
the county.
She listed seven items she
claims are different since the
2004 application, including:
The public realization
there is a need for water
access.
The owner agrees to deed


FPt v


5 acres of submerged lands to
Harbor Lights Mobile Home
Park.
They have reduced the
length of dock by 10 feet.
They are willing to
change the piling windload to
120 mph, versus 90 mph, to
better withstand hurricanes.
The owner offers to dedi-
cate the extension to public
access in perpetuity.
There will be a slip for
water taxi.
The owner agrees to a
condition that if it is ever
determined the extended
dock is impediment to navi-
gation, the owner will remove
or reconfigure it.
DeMarsh said the changes
brought by Patten Tuesday
were unknown to the cotnt\;,
and she admitted they were
added after the owner real-
ized there was going to be
problems getting the issue
heard.

The 415-foot portion of the
pier has yet to be built.
According to Berna, the mari-
na has until Jan. 26 to com-
plete the work.
The owner received four
extensions because of the
busy 2004-05 hurricane sea-
sons.I
No date has been set for


the public hearing on the
extension, but Staub request-
ed the item be brought up
during the second half of the
month, when meetings are in
Venice.

OUR VIEW




We see benefits in the visioning process


southwest Florida is changing rapidly.
Sometimes things become better.
Others, such as highway traffic, grow
worse.
Snowbirds, when they return, hardly rec-
ognize the community they left last spring.
But should we let these major and perma-
nent changes just happen? Should a city
planner's staff, or the city or county commis-
sioners, or planning and zoning board, or
even a special city committee, control our
lives?
Many cities are now recognizing the value
of widespread citizen participation in deci-
sion-making.
The process used is called "guided vision-
ing." i
Wise city officials have been turning to
visioning to encourage citizens to assist
them. The Vancouver, Canada, Citizen's
Committee has a handbook on the Internet
that can be used by any city anywhere:

"People 'can't want what they don't know,' We think the the time for guided visioning

North Port have their issues with the county
commission (and vice versa). At least in small
part that's because they have different views
- visions of the future for their jurisdic-
tions.
There's nothing wrong with that, but they
can't go off in separate directions without-
having an impact perhaps a severe one -
on each other. Those leaders need to work
together more, and make sure their staffs do
as well. Citizens must be a part of that
process.
This is especially true in areas such as
North Port and Englewood, where there is a
jurisdictional overlap between Charlotte and
Sarasota counties. Some officials and resi-
dents of both counties may be acquainted
with one another, but it seems too little joint
planning or coordination takes place.
Creating these visions is going to take
some work, and not just on the part of gov-
ernment officials. After all, it is our future
that's at stake.

Sl THAT REMINDS ME, DEAR. \n
ai orts flightplan'PA Y

.~i'trUP m UN tIi. liDAMrF THIS MONTH"?


ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST


Will the airport manage-
ment, following new policies
to be established by city
council, take steps to reduce
jet fuel vapors, exhaust and
noise that are now having-a
heavy impact on neighbors?
Will the city adopt more
stringent noise and safety
standards requiring pilots to
avoid flying over nearby
neighborhoods whenever
possible, replacing the cur-
rent system :of requesting
pilot cooperation, which is
only partially effective?
Will the city seriously
explore limiting the hours of
operation of the airport?
Will runway 4-22, essen-
tially northeast to southwest,
which leads over the beach
and gulf at its western end
and into what appears to be
the prevailing winds much of
the year, receive the priority
for repair, rather than runway
13-31, on which pilots often
ignore requests to fly over the
gulf, instead flying over the
residential areas on the
island?
Will navigational equip-
ment for instrument ap-
proaches be transferred from
13-31 to 4-22, encouraging
use of that more neighbor-
friendly runway? The airport
manager is having an inde-
pendent study made of pre-
vailing winds, to assist in the
planning process.
Will runway 9-27, now
inoperative, which heads traf-
fic east over .primarily com-
mercial areas and west direct-
ly to the gulf, be given priority
for rehabilitation rather than
either of the other two,
although its reconstruction
costs would be more exten-
sive?
Will a plan for commercial
development be found agree-
able to citizens and council
and provide a way to relocate
noise and air-polluting jet
operations away from Airport
Avenue as well as raise rev-
enues for airport operations
and improvements? Are their
steps that can be taken in the
near future if commercial
development is years off?
These is just a sample of
the questions one might
expect to hear raised in coun-
cil chambers during a Jan. 18


meeting, 4 p.m., of the airport
advisory committee, its con-
sultants, city staff and inter-
ested citizens.
Airport Manager' Fred
Watts spelled out the process
now ongoing that involves
three planning projects: 1) an
update of the airport master
plan required by the Federal
Aviation Administration, last
adopted in 1999-2000 (the
FAA recommends an update
every five years); 2) an airport
commerce park development
strategy; and 3) an air-
portwide master drainage
plan essential.to future devel-
opment and operation of the
airport.
All three of these projects
are being developed with
Florida-based consultant
firm MEA Group Inc.
Watts, on the job since last
February, inherited a com-
plex set of problems and he is
earnest and animated as he
speaks of the challenges of
developing the commerce
park, rehabilitating the run-
ways and responding to a
growing chorus of citizen
concerns about noise, safety-
and pollution.
He says he tries to "do his
best to give guidance to citi-
zens about what and what
cannot be done." He says he
wants the airport to be "the
very best neighbor possible."
He emphasizes that the
FAA and Florida's Depart-
ment of Transportation have
to approve changes in airport
operations. The FAA, for ex-
ample, must approve all
financial transactions, which
must be structured to bring
fair market value to the air-
port to be used for its opera-
tions.
There was an extended
sequence of negotiations in
recent years over the lease the
city gave the Lake Venice Golf
Course, which the FAA held
did not raise sufficient'rev-
enue. During that process the
FAA would not release funds
to the airport for renewing
runways. The contract even-
tually was modified to in-
crease the rent. Safety con-
ceths are a priority for the
agencies.
People who have. worked
closely with the airport as cit-
izens and advisors say a key
problem they see is between
the concepts "can't" and
"won't." They feel that over
the years the city has not been
responsive to requests for
changes in airport operations
affecting their homes and
they have been told certain
changes "can't" be made -
that is, they would not be
approved by the FAA or
FDOT.

Don't point the finger at Student Leadership Academy


Editor:
I read with interest Claude Lewis' article on the conditions at
the Chuck Reiter complex.
This is my son's fourth year in Venice Little League. My wife
recently completed her term on the VLL board and I have been
involved as a coach and volunteer.
The same son attends the Student Leadership Academy,
and I serve on the governing board. As much as I wish there
were 350 students at SLA, current enrollment is about the same
as last year at 165, and only about 60 of them participate in
physical education. That is three sections of 20 students each,
.or 17 percent of the impact reported in the article by Claude
Lewis.
SLA is a middle school. The students do riot have recess, and.
do not use the complex as a playground.
Under the primary-user agreement Sarasota County has
with VLL, SLA's use is permitted any time the primary user is
not using the facility andit's not closed for maintenance.
Was the article's point that the facility needs repairs, or that,
somebody has to be at fault? Other baseball organizations use
the facility, and other young people on Venice island do not
attend the Student Leadership Academy.
Sarasota County has an obligation to taxpayers to provide
access to taxpayer-supported recreational facilities. Primary
users of facilities should consider carefully any exclusion of
other taxpayers.
Mr. Lewis and VLL might also be interested in the privately
owned SLA parking lot: "Sort of like a Twin Lakes Park South.
No more parking problems ...."

Why don't we try
enforcing the law?

Editor:
Why is it that we always
come up with big projects to
solve a simple problems?
The speed limit on Venice
East Boulevard is 30 mph.
Have law enforcement do its
job by giving speeders a tick-
et.
Why punish law-abiding
citizens by putting speed
bumps on Venice East Boul-


evard?With speed bumps you
can count on spending mon-
ey for front-end alignment to
your car after traveling that
road several times a day.
I think the $25,000-$90,000
that is earmarked for the
speed bumps would be better
spent on sidewalks on Venice
East Boulevard. How did a
neighborhood that has been
there since 1970 not have any
sidewalks?
I thought the county re-
quired them.


I think children and adults
would be much safer with
sidewalks. Slowing traffic to
25 mph will only make the
driver bored and less likely to
pay close attention to his or
her driving.
We are building thousands
of new homes each year in
this area and we need better
methods of moving traffic,
not making unnecessary bot-
tlenecks.
Postcards have been sent
to residents of communities
bordering Venice East Boul-
evard. It is important to re-
spond and not throw away
the postcard. A non-vote-is
the same as a "yes" vote. This
seems like a very underhand-
ed way to get the 51 percent
vote to add speed bumps.
If you do not want traffic
"calming" with speed bumps,
vote "no".

Don't write off
rights so quickly

Editor:
In a letter to the editor on
Jan. 6, Mr. George Huhn
states that, "I will gladly sur-
render my right as outlined in
the Constitution if it even
saves one life in this world."
Our forefathers, grandfa-
thers, fathers, sons and
daughters have sacrificed
their lives defending our Con-
stitutional rights and you are
willing to give these rights up
so easily? It's all about "me,"
isn't it?

Venice
The proof is in
the peer review
Editor:
I read your interesting arti-
cle (about the potential red
tide cure) on the Intemet. It
was of interest not only
because of the current red
tide situation on the Florida
coast, but also because it
brought back memories of
past instances in which peo-
ple have been duped by oth-
ers purporting to have mirac-
ulous inventions, such as
cures for sickness; anti-gravi-
ty machines; machines that
converted water to gasoline;
and such.
Simple demonstrations of
those inventions were always
.the vehicle for selling the
product.
None of the so-called mir-
acles, however, could with-
stand critical peer review and
analysis by knowledgeable
scientists.
If Mr. Rigby submits his
invention for scientific analy-
sis', and it ultimately becomes
a solution to the red tide
problem, he will be hailed as
a hero.
On the other hand, if he is
not willing to submit the
product for peer review and
analysis, then I suspect that
he is destined to be remem-
bered as just another snake-
oil salesman.

VENICE GONDOLIER SUN 9A


WEDNESDAY, JAN.. 11, 2006 WWW.VENICEGONDOLIER.CO


A recent Let'em Have It
column included an inquiry
as to why construction on the
VenetianWaterway Park came
to an abrupt halt before
reaching the Circus Bridge. It
asked why "the builders" had
just stopped working, and
why they couldn't get an
answer from anyone.
The tone of the inquiry
clearly indicated displeasure
with the job not being com-
Spleted, saying the park has
become a safe fitness altema-
tive for walking, biking, roller-
blading and the like.
Having been intimately
involved with this project for
many years, I was admittedly
taken aback by the continued
misunderstanding among
much of the general public


with regard to the Venetian
Waterway Park construction.
Perhaps a little clarification is
in order.
First, this is not a govern-
ment project, nor is it private
development, although we do
owe a huge debt of gratitude
to both sectors as this has
been a true public-private
partnership for the benefit of
the community.
The development of the
Venetian Waterway Park has
been spearheaded by Venice
Area Beautification Inc., a vol-
unteer organization originat-
ing out of the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce.
It is understandable that
many believe this to be a gov-
ernment project. Considerable
funding and construction
expertise have come from the
city of Venice, Sarasota County
and a host of other govern-
mental entities and public
grant sources. However, private
foundations, coupled with
local community support,
'have, thankfully, rivaled the
effort of government in bring-
ing this effort nearly to comple-
tion after many years-of effort.
To the dismayed caller let
me say, please understand a
dedicated group of volun-
teers has been unyielding in


their effort to keep this pro-
ject moving toward comple-
tion. VABI realistically be-
lieved sufficient funding was
in place to complete the seg-
ment from the train depot to
the Circus Bridge.
Regrettably, two factors
altered that expectation: the
cost of concrete soaring un-
imaginably, and a need to
pour some thicker sections
than usual along that seg-
ment of trail. That has de-
railed construction.
Hopefully that caller is as
passionate as he sounded,
and now understanding the
true situation, will step for-
ward to stump for support
among his friends, family and
acquaintances to raise the
remaining funding necessary
to accomplish completion.
Anyone wishing to assist
may contact VABI at 488-
2236.
Working together, this
long-held dream for 10 miles
of trail will become a reality.
We are so close. You could be
the final connection.
Let's walk together.

years on the VABI board and

ganization. He is a Venice

It may be expected that at
Sthe Jan. 18 meeting and one
tentatively scheduled for May
10, citizens will urge council
to pin down the facts about
whether changes they suggest
are feasible.
They will point to other
communities, including Na-
ples, where such changes
have been adopted, suggest-
ing to them they have been
getting a "won't" response
Rather than a "can't."
Advocates suggesting
changes say they do not want
the airport to close or be

moved; instead, they say they
look forward to working with
a responsive council and city
officials to develop an action
plan for meeting their con-
cerns.
The "buzz" I am hearing is
not coming from the small,
single-engine planes practic-
ing landings and takeoffs, but
from anincreasing number of
people who recognize the
importance of the airport;
who are interested in its pos-
sible commercial develop-
ment; and most of all, who
want assurance thai the citr is


not just going to keep on with
its past practices of deflecting
their concerns, but rather,
move actively to improve
conditions.

Beachgoers playing shell games


Taking advantage. We went to the North Jetty today and it
was very windy, which caused a lot of shells to be washed up on
the north side of the jetty. I guess it isn't against the law to fill up
many buckets full of shells, but it sure is against my ethics.
There were several ladies there filling up very large buckets full
of shells for the taking. I don't know if they were going to refur-
bish a driveway, yard or what, but it seems to me that is taking
advantage of a situation. The shells get washed into that par-
ticular area after a storm, which attracts people to come and
collect them or look for shark teeth in a conservative manner.
But to dig up bucketsful and take them off for personal use is
beyond by comprehension. It reminds me of the story of the
man in Siesta Key who took away some of the sand to sell on
eBay. We have many wonderful natural resources here in
Florida, which I don't think should be abused this way.
Unfortunately, we didn't have the camera to take a picture
when these women were filling up their buckets but we did
capture some of the buckets. Earliefin the day there were sev-
eral people digging up these buckets full of shells, and some of
them were loaded in carts to take to their cars. Very sad.


Wrong numbers. You talk
about all the awards your
paper gets every year, but
since you started this different
paper you can't even print the
lottery numbers right. I won-
der how many winning tickets
have been thrown away
because you put the wrong
numbers in. And you talk
about what a good paper you
have and you can't even get
the numbers right.
Should resign. Anyone
who reads the Let'em Have It
column on a regular basis rec-
ognizes Herb Levine's writing
style. First he slams the
mayor, then he slams Jeff and
Dan Boone, and then he drags
up some claim of poor man-
agement by city officials. Too
bad he can't get over the fact
that Dean Calamaras trounc-
ed Herb's candidate in the
mayor's race and the Boones
prevail while Herb Levine and
his taxpayers league do not.
Instead of the mayor resign-
ing, Venice would be far better
off if Levine would resign.
TV discovered. Why do the
mayor or other council mem-
bers respond when out-


landish half-truths or outright
lies are spoken by Herb Le-
vine on John Patten in the
"open to the public" portion
of city council meetings? It is
because Levine and Patten
have discovered the TV cover-
age of every city council
meeting. The innocent viewer
at home could accept what.


Levine and Patten say as truth
unless it is rebutted by some-
one who knows the real truth.
Move it. Is there an ordi-
nance about how long a vehi-
cle can be parked on a city
street without being moved?
There's been an ugly trailer at
612 W Venice Ave. for weeks,
maybe months, and we're all
tired of looking at it there. I
wish they'd move it.
Impact fees. I feel that the
state and local government
should have the right to
impose impact fees. What I
like the best is imposing
impact fees for each incident
caused by out-of-state crimi-
nals people who had their
residence in other states.
Then by the time the season
comes, I don't have to pay
court costs and everything
else. With the impact fees we
can house them in our jails if
they don't take their criminal
activity a) to their home state,
or b) someplace else. We're
gonna have a safe season and
not have to wory about it.

Administration to slow school reforms amid parent, teacher protests


Idea: good. Execution: not so good. The county's
reform consultant hits a major roadblock par-
ents and teachers.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County School
Board members Tuesday took
the opportunity to both
praise the current effort to
reform high schools and vent
at the news it may need to be
slowed down.
Some on the board ex-
pressed frustration that par-
ents and teachers were hot as
informed as they could be
about major changes coming
to their high schools. -'
"We haven't done a good
jot of getting (the informa-
tion) down to the parent
level," said Superintendent
Gary Norris, who hoped to
have all reforms in place by
August 2007. "It's evident we


overshot our target. It's much
easier to adjust the pace ...
We're going to get there."
Norris said it may take up
to five years before the plan is
fully implemented.
It was clear to board mem-
bers from a recent flood of e-
mails from parents and
teachers at Sarasota High and
Riverview High, unhappy
with the idea of block sched-
uling implemented this
semester, that reforms were
not being received well.
Even at Venice High, where
block scheduling and small
learning communities al-
ready exist, there's resistance
from teachers and parents
uncomfortable with pro-
posed changes to existing
academies and mistakenly


fearful, according to school
officials, that AP courses
might be cut.
Too much pressure
Barbara Chomko, execu-
tive director of high school
education for the district, also
said the consultant In-.
stitute for Research and Re-
form in Education thought
the school district and its
employees would be further
along in its preparedness to
implement reforms, which
include formalized small
learning communities, block
scheduling, an .extended
school day, a family advocate
system, and changing the
way teachers teach, among
others.
"We said we needed pres-
sure to move forward," Cho-
mko said. "There was per-
haps too much pressure.
"Our schools are doing
very well. Data shows we have
many students performing


well, but it also shows clearly
we have a significant number
of students who are not
achieving. We will move more
strategically and 'more
thoughtfully in our plan; We
will be more participatory."
School administrators say
education research shows
they are on the right track;
The quest for more relevant,
individualized education and
time on task is where the
most significant gains will be
made.
Research also shows hold-
ing community meetings
before implementing major
changes like block scheduling
is key to success, something
that wasn't done.
Disconnect
Norris said nearly all the
schools that have' made the
leap to block scheduling and
small learning communities
like it and haven't returned to
traditional short classes.


Convincing parents, the
reforms are necessary and
will benefit their children is
only half the battle facing the
district. Winning over teach-
ers can be equally difficult.
In addition to the, top-
down application of the ini-
iative, teachers are a little
anxious about what is expect-
ed from them. Changing and
modifying instructional strat-
egies doesn't happen over-
night.
And school leaders are
pushing educators to raise
expectations while. raising
scores no easy task, since
raising the bar usually means
fewer can reach it.
Associate Superintendent
Lori White points to a recent
study with model teachers in
the district that highlights the
dilemma.
"They knew they were
aligned with Sunshine Stand-
ards, but upon closer look
they realized there was some


disconnect when'it came to
(teaching) mastery skills.
They really were not aligned."
"It's not just what you are
teaching, but how you are
teaching. Higher expecta-
tions are about pushing kids.
There can't be a continuous
review of lower-level skills. We
need to push to higher level
skills. If we don't get all teach-
ers to that point, we won't get
the improvement (we are
seeking)," White said.
"I've shared my frustra-
tion," said board member
Frank Kovach, "with all the
kids being left behind. It's
frustrating to see (reform)
continually slowed down
when it needs to be sped up."
"I understand the frustra-
tion," Norris said. "I came to
this district with an ambitious
program. The only way I
know how to do it is to move
at a more comfortable pace"
and educate parents about its
benefits.

is part of the t.S. 41 construc-
tion now under way.
The county will be respon-
sible for the second portion,
extending to Albee Farm
Road. About 1,600 homes
within the revitalization area
and adjacent neighborhoods
are affected. They are all
south of Laurel Road, and
extend eastward to Pinebrook
Road.
The meeting will be the


fifth initiated by Public
Utilities in response to owner
concerns since last summer.
Homeowners on Shore Road
and Bay Point met with coun-
ty engineers last month. A
.similar informational meet-
ing with Colonia Lane neigh-
bors took place in the sum-
mer.
S'Members of the Nokomis
East Association held their
second meeting with the


department Tuesday night.
Earlier meetings with the
department were so well
attended that the supply of
maps and information sheets
prepared by the county was
exhausted, according to
Dillon. He expressed hope
that a fresh supply will be
available at Wednesday's
meeting.
Tuesday's Nokomis East
Association meeting was


scheduled by residents, who
felt that they did not receive
answers to all their questions
from a December workshop.
No sewer service is con-'
templated for Nokomis in the
near future, according to
Dillon.
He said he was told by the
county that 14,000 homes in
the Philippi Creek section of
Sarasota would have to be
hooked up first.

Charlotte catches Lady Indians


Venice loses in fourth quarter,


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Revenge is sweet for Char-
lotte High's girls basketball
team.
The visiting Lady Tarpons
outplayed Venice in the fourth
quarter and came away with
a 43-36 victory at the Teepee.
Charlotte improved to 8-8
overall and 4-6 in Class 5A
District 12. Venice fell to 10-8
and 5-5.
Charlotte, which had lost


to Venice in Punta Gorda
earlier in the season, entered
the final quarter trailing the
Lady Indians, 25-21. But the
Lady Indians became un-
glued in the fourth quarter
and Charlotte got hot.
Quick guard Keanna
Wheatland started the spurt
with a pair of layups to give
Charlotte a 28-26 lead.
With 3:40 left, Zacklyn
Roguska canned a big 3-point
goal to put the Lady Tarpons
up 33-29.


Guard Lindsay Riegsecker attempts to get the ball upcourt
against a tough Charlotte High full court press in first quarter
action Tuesday night.



Matmen respectable


3-3 at Graves Duals


STAFF REPORT


The Venice High wrestlers
held their own In the tough-
est dual event in the state,
which is saying a lot consid-
ering that this is a rebuilding
year for the Indians.
Venice placed sixth out of
16 teams participating in the
Graves Challenge the Streak
Duals at Brandon High last
Friday and Saturday.
The Indians finished with
a record of 3-3 in the presti-
gious event.
Nationally ranked Brandon
was first, Fort Lauderdale-
Cardinal Gibbons was sec-
ond and Lake Gibson was
third.
Of those three, Venice
faced Lake Gibson, losing a
tough 35-32 decision.
Venice opened with a
72-12 spanking of Tampa-
Alonso. The Indians then lost
to Jensen Beach, 36-32. They
followed that up a 48-25 les-
son over Tampa-Sickles and a
54-18 romp over Douglas.
Then came the loss to Lake
Gibson. The Indians finished
the tournament by dropping
a 47-18 nod to Tampa-Jesuit.
"We wrestled very well in
five of the six matches," Ven-
ice head coach Dan Kelly
said. "The last match was a
little disappointing. We might
have run out of gas."
Overall, it was a good expe-
rience.
"It was our first real action
since the holidays," Kelly
said. "It was productive. Each
kid got six matches."
Most of the Indians had
winning records.
Brett Nelson (160 pounds)


and Jeremie Cook (189
pounds) were each unbeaten
at 6-0. Andrew Lopez was
5-1 at 103 and Wade Consul
was 5-1 at 119.
"Wade was losing a match
10-1 and came back.to Win,"
Kelly said.
A bunch of Indians were
4-2 Doug Little (112), Tyler
Spann (130), Trevor Goodin
(135) and Kyle Keefe (152).
Jon Hodge was 3-3 at 145
and Will Moltop was 2-3 at
140. Heavyweight Anthony
Saputo was 2-4 but wrestled
decent considering he had
been ill over the holidays.
"Heavyweight was proba-
bly the toughest weight
class," Kelly said.
Venice had to forfeit at 215
pounds. Regular Jim Foubister
is still nursing a shoulder
injury.
Venice, now 13-5 in duals
this season, will travel to
Manatee High for a match
Wednesday night. On Friday
and Saturday, it's off to
Naples-Palmetto Ridge for
another duals tournament.

Then it was Kari Foley's
turn. She converted a pass
from Wheatland on a break
to make it 35-29 and follow-

another layup to give Char-
lotte a 37-29 advantage.
From there, the game went
into the hands of savvy point
guard Pheedy Spallone, who
sank six of eight free throw
attempts in the final quarter.
Charlotte doubled up Ven-
ice over the final eight min-
utes, 22-11.
Spallone, who sat most of
the third quarter and some of
the fourth after being poked
in the eye, ended up with 13
points to lead Charlotte.
Venice was led by forward
Samantha Worthington, who
had 13 points. She was nine
of 10 from the free throw
line. Her teammates were a
combined four-for-13 at the
stripe.
Venice was also guilty of

Voigt now with Mets organization


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Back in the day, Jack Voigt,
played in the New York-Penn
League as a prospect in the
Baltimore Orioles'.chain.
"I won a batting title," he
said of his .320 with Newark
in his first taste of pro ball in
1987.
Nineteen years later, Voigt
will be returning to the New
York-Penn League as a coach.
He has agreed to be the hit-
ting and fielding coach for
the New York Mets' short
season Class A Brooklyn Cy-
clones.
Voigt comes to the Mets


organization from the Wash-
ington Nationals, where he
acted as roving coach last
year. Previously, Voigt has
coached with the Atlanta
Braves and Orioles.
"It's a good opportunity,"
said Voigt, a 1983 Venice High
graduate who went on to play
for four American League
teams spanning seven years
in the Major Leagues. "It's
high profile because Brook-
lyn is so close to Shea Sta-
dium. The team leads the
league in attendance. It's
right near Corey Island."
KeySpan Park was opened
in 2001.
Voigt interviewed with the


Mets director of minor leagues
Kevin Morgan in November.
"I liked their philosophies,"
Voigt said.
Voigt's duties will begin at
the end of February. He will
coach the Mets Extended

Lucie up until June. The
short season begins June 20
and ends Sept. 7.
"It's a 76-game schedule,"
said Voigt, who still spends
his offseasons inVenice.
Voigt runs the annual Ven-
ice Holiday Baseball Clinic
for kids and also has 45 stu-
dents he tutors on the game.
He is also now dabbling in
real estate'.

two weeks of no running, eat-

AT THE BEACH
Running on sand burns up to 1.6 times more calories per mile
than running on asphalt, according to runnersworld.com's Bob
Cooper. Here's a suggested beach training plan ro burn off those
extra Christmas pounds.
WARMUP: Run 10 minutes on the wet, hard-packed sand, gradu-
ally accelerating from a slow jog to training pace.
WORKOUT: THE ZIGZAG
Head to the dry, soft sand for a one-minute hard run (less
than one minute if your breathing gets out of control).
Cut back to the firm sand for one minute of slow recovery
running.
Keep this zigzag pattern going until you've done five to 10
one-minute spurts.
COOLDOWN: Run 10 minutes easy on the hard-packed sand.

bit of laziness, and I've made
my jeans tighter than any-
thing Olivia Newton John
wore in "Grease."
Back on the fitness train
S"Just run a bit faster and all
that weight will came right
off," one of my fellow Venice
Runners Group members
said last Wednesday as he
accelerated from a 9 minutes
per mile pace to sub-8's.
That first run back follow-
ing a two-week layoff left me
winded and sore. Weighing
myself right before heading
out didn't help, either.
So I went to Runners
World.com for a training plan
to rapidly remove this excess
bulk and get me back to
speed, if not for the Naples
race, at least in time for the
Sarasota Marathon's 26.2
miles in March. I'm hoping to
set a personal record.
According to an article by


The race is presented by

Bob Cooper, I need to hit the

"Several studies have

running on asphalt burn-

the article. "There's also much
Less impact force when you

stuff is the kindest to the legs.
But it's also much harder to
run .in, making 10-minute
miles feel like speedwork."
Cooper's article talks about
summer runs along the sand.
Here in Florida, it's sum-
mer 365 days a year and
Venice has one of the longest
stretches of uninterrupted
public beach in all the Gulf
Coast.
Runners unaccustomed to
running on sand must be
careful of injuries, warns
Cooper.
"While the softness of sand
reduces the risk of impact-
related injuries, other injuries
may be more likely," Cooper

can strain your Achilles ten-

Some basic tips to protect

Scholars ready for Academic Olympics


STAFF REPORT

The Education Foundation
of Sarasota County Inc. is
once again producing the
Academic Olympics in part-
nership with Sarasota County
schools.
The college bowl style
competition is the only pro-
gram in area high schools that
provides an opportunity for
competitive team efforts in
academics that compare to
athletics.
The competition began
with matches at local high
schools on Jan. 10. There will
be seven days of Round Robin
competitions with matches
,each Tuesday through Feb.
21. All competitions begin at
2:30 p.m. The public is wel-


come at the events. Schools
require check-in at the office.
The young Olympians are
some of Sarasota County's
most academically talented
students. Each has earned a
place on his or her school
team through a rigorous
competition at the school
level. Each year, student par-
ticipants encounter challeng-
ing questions, hone their crit-
ical thinking and problem-
solving skills, practice sports-
manship and teamwork, and
exhibit a wealth of knowledge
in a broad range of subjects.
There are seven teams in
the Sarasota CountyAcadem-
ic Olympics this year-a team
from each of the six public
high schools in Sarasota
County-Booker, North Port,


PineView, Riverview, Sarasota
and Venice; and Cardinal
Mooney High School.
The day-long finals take
place Saturday, Feb. 25, in the
School Board auditorium at
the Landings Complex, be-
ginning at 8 a.m. Teams will
be seeded for the finals ac-
cording to the results of the
Round Robin competition.
There will be six games
throughout the day with a
lunch break from 12:30-1:30

Generosity abounds at Cardinal Mooney High School


STAFF REPORT

Each year, the Cardinal
Mooney High School Key
Club challenges students,
teachers and staff to demon-
strate their kind hearts in a
variety of ways.
This year, the club kicked
off the holiday season with its
largest-ever donation to the
Bethesda House, a nonprofit
organization that assists fam-
ilies with AIDS.
They delivered food bas-
kets for 60 families to enjoy
Thanksgiving dinners, com-
plete with turkeys.
For Christmas, the stu-
dents and staff contributed
toys for Andrew's Toy Box.
Over the course of just a few
short weeks, the Cardinal
Mooney community brought
in more than 400 toys.
Andrew's Toy Box is a non-
profit organization that helps
children with life threatening
or chronic illnesses by provid-
ing care packages of-toys,
craft projects and books.
It was started by the par-

STAFF REPORT


For 20 years residents of
Village On The Isle, a retire-
ment community in Venice,
have been gathering to plan a
fundraiser for student schol-
arships. Last May they pre-
sented $39,000 in scholar-
ships to 13 individuals. It was
the largest amount awarded
in the history of the program.
As Venice's first retirement
center, Village On The Isle is
one of the few in the region
who give scholarships to its
employees. Except for two
nurse's aides seeking to fur-
ther their certification, schol-
arship recipients last year
were all Venice High School
students who worked in the
Hibiscus and Mary dining
rooms as wait staff.
Contributions were made
by nearly 200 out of 410 resi-
dents from Mathew Hall, the
independent living center,


and Trinity Hall, the assisted
living center, said Bob
Nicholson of the scholarship
committee. He estimates over
the years Village On The Isle
has awarded more than 100
scholarships.
Staff member Judy Voight
initiated the program 20 years
ago when she asked the Isle
Auxiliary Committee to con-
sider offering scholarships. A
scholarship committee wass
established, and the annual
fund raising effort began.
The scholarship commit-
tee is made up of six mem-
bers from each of two resi-
dential halls. They send a let-
ter each year to every resident
encouraging donations. They
credit their success to an
early, organized effort and
caring individuals. To learn
more about how to organize a
scholarship /fundraiser in
your retirement community,

My wild adventures in Sun Valley


DAVE BARRY
HUMOR COLUMNIST


This classic Dave Barry
column was originally pub-
lished Feb. 11, 1996.

This is the second part, of a
two-part series titled
"Recreational Winter Sports
That You Can Do Sitting
Down." In Part 1, I discussed
snowmobiling, my key find-
ing being that you should not
go snowmobiling with ado-
lescent boys unless your.
recreational goal is cardiac
:arrest. Today, I'll discuss a
sport that is more relaxing, as
'well as far more fragrant: dog-
sledding.
A dog sled is follow me
carefully here a sled that is
pulled by dogs. And if you
;think that dogs are not strong


enough to pull a sled, then
you have never been walking
a dog on a leash when a squir-
rel ran past. Even a small dog
in this situation will generate
one of the most powerful
forces known to modem sci-
ence. In some squirrel-infest-
ed areas, it is not at all unusu-
al to see a frantically barking
dog racing down the street,
wearing a leash that is
attached to a bouncing,
detached arm.
Historians believe that the
dog sled was invented thou-
sands of years ago when an
Alaskan Eskimo attached a
pair of crude runners to a
frame, hitched this con-
trivance to a pack of dogs,
climbed aboard and wound
up in Brazil.
This taught the remaining
Eskimos that if they were
going to build another one of
these things, it should defi-
nitely have brakes. Today, dog
sleds are mainly used in
races, the most famous one
being the Alaskan Iditarod, in
which competitors race from
Anchorage to Nome, with the
winner getting a cash prize of
$50,000, which just about'
covers the winner's Chapstick
expenses.


I took a far more modest
dog-sled ride, up and down a
smallish mountain near
Hailey, Idaho, on a sled oper-
ated by Sun Valley Sled Dog
Adventures. This is a small
company started by a very
nice young guy named Brian
Camilli, who plans to win the
Iditarod someday, and who
bought his first sled dogs five
years ago with what was
going to be his college tuition
("My parents still aren't sure
how they feel about it," he
says). He now owns 27 dogs,
which, as you can imagine,
makes it somewhat tricky for
him to obtain rental housing.
I was part of a two-sled
party, which required 18 dogs.
A highlight of this experience
- in fact, a highlight of my
entire life was watching
Brian and his partner, Jeremy
Gebauer, bring the dogs, one
at a time, out of the truck.
Because, of course, every
single dog, immediately upon
emerging, had to make wee-
wee, and then every dog nat-
urally had to sniff every other
dog's weewee, which would
cause the following thought
to register in their primitive
dog brains: "Hey! This is wee-
wee!" And so, naturally, this


would cause every one of
them to have to make more
weewee, which every other
one would, of course, have to
sniff, the result being that we
soon were witnessing what
nuclear physicists call a
Runaway Chain Weewee
Reaction.
Eventually, Brian and
Jeremy got all the dogs into
their harnesses, at which
point they began to suspect
that they might be about to
run somewhere, which
caused them to start barking
at the rate of 250 barks per
minute per dog. I would esti-
mate that at that moment our
little group was responsible
for two-thirds of the noise,
and a solid three-quarters of
the weewee, being produced
in the western United States.
These dogs were rarin' to
go. We passengers climbed
into the sleds, and Brian and
Jeremy stood on the runners
behind. The sleds were tied
firmly to the front bumper of
the truck, but the dogs were
pulling so hard that I swear I
felt the truck move; I had this
vision of us disappearing over
the top of the mountain -
dogs, followed by sleds, fol-
lowed by truck, all headed for


-the Arctic Circle, never to be
heard from again.
Quickly, Brian and Jeremy
untied the sleds and,
whoooaaaa, we were off,
whipping up the trail at a very
brisk pace, the dogs insanely
happy, Brian and Jeremy
shouting traditional dog-
team commands (my favorite
traditional command, shout-
ed by Brian, was: "Be nice!").
These guys know their
dogs; they watch them care-
fully and talk to them individ-
ually. Every dog runs a little
differently, has a different
personality. For example, on
my sled's team, Sprocket was
a good, hard worker, a steady
puller with a real nice gait;
Brian hardly had to tell him
anything. But he had to keep
talking to Suzy, who was defi-
nitely not pulling her share of
the load: She was more wad-
dling than trotting. Brian
would shout, "Suzy!" and
she'd start trotting for a while,
but as soon as she thought he
wasn't looking she'd go back
to waddling. You could just
tell that if Suzy worked for a
large corporation, she'd
spend most of her day mak-
ing personal phone calls.
But most of the dogs were


off to the races. In fact, the
hard part is getting them to
stop. Brian told us that one of
the cardinal rules of this sport
is that you never, ever get off
and walk behind the sled.
"They'll leave you behind,"
he said.
We trotted briskly up to the
top of the mountain, then
Jeremy and Brian turned the
sleds aroundin amaneuverthat
had all the smooth precision of
a prison riot as the two teams of
dogs suddenly decided this
would be a good time for all 18
of them to sniff each other's pri-
vate regions. But they got
straightened out, and we roared
back down the hill; even Suzy
was in overdrive. The sun was
shining, the valley was spread
out below us, the wind (not to
mention the occasional whiff of
dog poo) waswhippingpast our
faces. It was a wonderful
moment, and I felt as though I
never wanted to get off the sled,
even if there had been some
.way to stop it I'll write when we
reach Brazil.

Lemon Bay: It's y



watershed address


BOBBI RODGERS
GUEST COLUMNIST


We all know our mailing
address, but few of us know
our watershed address.
If you live between Center
Road in Venice and Rotonda in
Cape Haze, you live within the
47,707-acre Lemon Bay water-
shed. This includes the lands
near Alligator Creek, Forked
Creek, Gottfried Creek, Angier
(or Rock) Creek, Oyster Creek
and Buck Creek, as well as
coastal areas that flow directly
from the land into the bay.
This is our watershed, and
it connects our homes to
Lemon Bay.
So, what is a watershed
anyway? Simply, a watershed
.is an area of land that water
flows across as it moves to a
common body of water.
Watersheds are easy to identi--
fy in mountainous regions.
Rain and snowmelt from the
mountains flow downward
and settle within the lower
elevations in lakes, rivers and
creeks, eventually flowing to
oceans and gulfs.
Perhaps not as obvious are
the watersheds in Florida. The
creeks: listed above, called I
tributaries, along with canals,
ponds and the land surround-
ing them all drain into Lemon
Bay. This area connects our
homes to the bay.
By way of the watershed
flow, the health of Lemon Bay
is and always was directly
dependent upon the land.
Historically, the rains fell on
vast areas of pine and palmetto
flatwoods. The flatwoods were
dotted with pockets of isolated
wetlands that held the heavy
rains of the summer months.


Soil and plant life filtered and
slowed the movement of the
rainwater, which eventually
became either a part of the
shallow groundwater table or
drained directly into the bay
through creeks.
This fresh water mixed
with the saltwater to create a
nursery for juvenile fish such
as snook and redfish. These,
in turn, provided food for
wildlife and some of the area's
earliest inhabitants.
Today, however, our bay is
not as clean or productive as it
was 150 years ago. Scientists
have documented the loss of
seagrass, mangroves and oyster
beds and believe that the great-
est source ofpollution affecting
these is from our very own
yards and driveways.
Every day without realizing
it, we affect the health of
Lemon Bay by engaging in
common activities such as
walking the dog, washing the
car and caring for our lawns.
Pollutants left behind by
these and other activities are
picked up by rainwater within
the watershed and are carried
to ponds, creeks, rivers and,
eventually, to Lemon Bay.
Bacteria from pet wastes
and leaking septic tanks can
threaten our drinking water
and make our beaches unsafe
for swimming and fishing.
Nutrients from lawn fertiliz-
ers and grass clippings wash
-into waterways where they
cause algae blooms that can
be fatal to aquatic plants and
animals, including fish.


ur


Everyone's everyday activi-
ties determine whether Lemon
Bay stays clean and healthy, or
not. The choices that we make
directly affect Lemon Bay.
When we understand that
our homes and businesses
are connected to the bay
.through our watershed, we
are able to take measures to
protect this great resource. We
can apply fertilizers and pes-
ticides sparingly. The "label is
the law" on these chemicals,
and overuse not only costs us
money but the excess washes
into our waters.
Better yet, consider native
plants that don't require addi-
tional water or fertilizers.
Pick up pet wastes and dis-
pose of them properly. Have
septic systems inspected reg-
ularly and pumped out as
needed. Keep grass clippings
from entering the watershed.
Wash cars at the local car
wash or on grass or gravel
instead of on .pavement.
Attend and participate in the
many educational programs
offered by local organizations
to learn more about water-
shed issues.
Working together, we can
help preserve our watershed
and keep Lemon Bay clean
and healthy. Our connection

can be good one.

Voice of youth ascending


BY RACHEL ALEXANDER
STAFF WRITER


Riley Pierson hopes her
songwriting and singing will
be discovered soon, and
those around town who have
seen her perform are hoping
her dreams come true.
It could happen: Her demo
CD is out and ready to be
shipped.
The 19-year-old lifelong
resident of Englewood is well-
known among her family and
peers as an accomplished
vocalist.
And her father, 'Louis Pier-
son, who runs Amber Lake
Wildlife Refuge, where Riley
grew up, said she wants noth-
-ing more.
"'No Turning Back' is the
name of her CD," Pierson
said. "And that's what I'm
encouraging her to do. Vocals
are just who she is."
Riley Pierson is hoping to
use the four-song CD, con-
sisting of mostly hard pop
music with an R&B influence,
to market herself to large
record companies.
Louis Pierson -- Riley's
biggest fan, next to her moth-
er recently did most of
Riley's bragging.
But don't mistake Riley's
humility for shyness.
That she is not is evi-
denced by her long list of per-
formances at Venice Little
Theatre and Lemon Bay High
School.
In Lemon Bay's award-
winning 2004 production of
"Seussical The Musical,"
Riley was named best sup-
porting actress and best
vocalist by her peers.


She has always liked
singing for others, she said,
beginning with her perfor-
mance of "Twinkle, Twinkle
Little Star" at the Community
Presbyterian Church's Christ-
mas Pageant when she was 5.
Now she's a young woman
with a list of nearly 50 perfor-
mance experiences, awards,
shows and community sing-
ing events behind her.
Multilingual,
multi-talented
Among her many achieve-
ments are superior ratings in
duet musical, solo musical,
small group musical, and
large group musical for both
state district and showcase
awards.
Riley also 'performed in
"Lion, the Witch and the
Wardrobe," "Anything Goes,"
"Babes in Toyland," "Kiss me
Kate," "The Wizard of Oz,"
"The Madwoman of Chaillot"
and "Jungle Book in Concert."
Riley was named best sup-
porting actress for her perfor-
mance.in "Kiss'me Kate."
She was president of the
vocal department at Lemon
Bay High School and received
the Best Chorus Member
award from the department.
Riley also has been able to
showcase her music for Hard
RockAcademy.
Local charities have invit-
ed her to sing, and she has
performed the national
anthem at various sporting
events throughout Florida.
She sings in Italian,
French, Spanish, Latin and
English.
Riley doesn't keep her tal-
ents to herself, though. She


shares them with others. She
was a counselor at Starz
Choice Dance Academy
Summer Camp, Venice Little
Theatre and LBHS Summer
Theatre.
Riley has her own compa-
ny now, called Fayme Enter-
tainment in Orlando, where
she is vocal coach, pageant
coach, singer, songwriter,
arranger and producer.
"It's an artists' develop-
ment company," Riley said. "I
try to give confidence in their
performance."
That's what Riley said she's
good at, because it is known
that her performances are full
of poise.
CDs are available by con-
tacting Pierson at 475-4585,
or going on Riley's Web site at
RileyPierson.com.

Q 1 East-West vulnerable, as South
you hold:
*AK 5 4 7 O KQJ6 s Q 10 9 3
The bidding has proceed:
EAST SOUTH WEST NORTH
10 Pass Pass 10
Dbl ?
What action do you take'?
A Partner might have as few as 7
points for his balancing bid. However,
you have enough strength to cover
him. But that does not mean you
should pass. Despite your singleton
heart, you should redouble. That tells
him to let thebidding come round to
you should the opponents bail out.
Q 2 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
SQ10762 V J542 oQ ..A109
The bidding has proceeded:
EAST SOUTH WEST NORTH
I Pass Pass 1NT
Pass ?
What do you bid now?
A In the balancing seat, partner's
one no trump shows 11-14 points, so
don't punish him for refusing to sell
out at the one-level. Don't try to find
a spade fit two spades might not
be as good a contract as one no
trump. Pass.
Q 3 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
4K76432 OQ94 04 4 Q83
The bidding has proceeded:
WEST NORTH EAST SOUTH
14 Dbl Pass ?
What action do you take?
A The one thing you cannot afford
is to convert the double to penalties.
Despite your length in the. suit, your
spades are so weak that you can't
prevent declarer from scoring almost
all of his spades. You must take out
in your cheaper fragment. Bid two
clubs.
Q.4 As South, vulnerable, you hold.
SQ 6 5 A K 9 8 4 0 10 9 4 K 7


40 Pass ?
What do you bid now?
A If you play this jump as the
Principle of Fast Arrival showing a
minimum opening, of course, you
pass. If, however, it shows extra
strength, you could be in slam terri-
tory. Your holding is certainly worth
a mild try, and we suggest four
spades as the cheapest way to show
your ambitions.
Q 5 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
*K8 vK QJ1093 OVoid 4.AJ1053
The bidding has proceeded:
WEST NORTH EAST SOUTH
1* Pass 2* ?
What do you bid now?
A One of our pet theories is that
hands with 6-5 distribution play very
well, so we would jump to four
hearts. The only other bid we would
consider is the more conservative
three hearts. Don't even think about
a takeout double or cue-bid, or you
could find you have to show a suit
for the first time at the five-level.
Q 6 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:
*A J 6 o 104 o 73 4 AKQ983
The bidding has proceeded:
EAST SOUTH WEST NORTH
14 24 Pass 34
Pass ?
What do you bid now?
A We have a sneaking admiration
for those who would gamble on three
no trump, and if we were assured of
a spade lead, so would we. But there
is a chance that we might be blind-
sided by a red-suit lead. We would
show our spade stopper by bidding
three spades and give partner the
chance to be a hero.

SMost everyone can enjoy the benefits of hypnosis
has to offer. Yes, you can be hypnotized. Hypnosis
is safe, natural and feels like being awake during a
pleasant dream.
Yes, Yes, Yes, it works. I'm living proof that
hypnosis weight loss programs get real and genuine
results. It will work for you.

AUTOMATIC WEIGHT LOSS
Immediately after my first hypnosis session I
experienced a gradual change. I stopped thinking of
food all the time. My craving for donuts, cakes and
pies disappeared. My food choices changed. I found
myself eating less but feeling content, full and
satisfied.
This wasn't something I had to work at. I never
once felt deprived. A friend recently asked me,
"Was it easy staying motivated?" I never even
considered it. All 35 pounds of my weight loss was
automatic. You don't even think about it. Hypnosis
wiped my poor eating habits away like a damp cloth
wipes away chalk on a chalkboard. A gentle stroke
and the problem was gone. That easy. Call today,

ABSOLUTE SOLUTION
This program have me the absolute weight loss
solution I have been searching for. I now eat what I
want and HAVEN'T GAINED AN OUNCE SINCE
HYPNOSIS.


I'm free of the stigma, pain, suffering and
embarrassment that I endured. Now you can be free,
too. Call 625-6455.

POWERFUL RESULTS
My results were so powerful that when my
husband and I celebrated Thanksgiving, I ate healthy
food and lost weight. Can you imagine? All that
food. Available all day, and still lost weight. Now
that's an acid test if there ever was one.

CONCRETE PROOF
The use of hypnosis is sweeping the nation. Valid,
medically approved, clinically tested and proven
effective. Here are the facts.
No dangers have ever been linked to hypnosis.
FBI, armed forces, police, businesses and
professional sports teams use hypnosis.

DREAMS COME TRUE
I started with SunCoast Hypnosis the last week of April 2004 and since February.
2005, I have taken off, and kept off 60 pounds. Even during the many hurricanes of
2004 that caused stress, I found myself not binge eating, but doing more relaxing
things, like reading and painting my condo. My energy level, as well as my self-
esteem has risen greatly. The great comments from friends that I have known for
years, but haven't seen in a while, also is evidence that this is a very successful
program.
SLuke, Fort Myers
I have lost 41 pounds as of today! I have never felt deprived and I do not want the
things I used to eat. I did not even want a piece of my own birthday cake! This
Works!
Sue Anne Mandella, Lehigh
I feel that this program has helped me to lose 25 lbs. and gain confidence in myself,
and know that I can do it!

Air Force Airman Anthony
Suppa has graduated from
basic military training at
Lackland Air Force Base, San
Antonio. Texas.
During the six weeks of
training, the airman studied
the Air Force mission, organi-
zation. and military customs
and courtesies; performed
drill and ceremony marches:
and received physical train-:
ing, rifle marksmanship, field
training exercises and special
training in human relations.
In addition, airmen who
complete basic training earn
credits toward an associate
degree through the Comm-
unity College of the Air Force.
The airman is a 2003 grad-
uate ofAlexander W. Dreyfoos

Navy Seaman Angela J.
SAdams, a 2004 graduate of
Venice High School, recently
completed U.S. Navy basic
training at Recruit Training
Command in Great Lakes, Ill.
During the eight-week pro-
gram, Adams completed a
variety of training, which
included classroom study and
practical instruction on naval
customs, first aid, firefighting,
water safety and survival and
shipboard and aircraft safety.
An. emphasis was also placed
on physical fitness.
The capstone event of boot
camp is "Battle Stations," an
exercise that gives recruits the
skills and confidence they
need to succeed in the fleet.
Battle Stations is designed
to galvanize the basic warrior
attributes of sacrifice, dedica-
tion, teamwork and endur-
ance in each recruit through
the practical application of
basic Navy skills and the core
values of honor, courage and
commitment.
Its distinctly "Navy" flavor
was designed to take into
account what it means to be a
sailor.


SOME SOBERING FACTS
Most adults brush their teeth only once a day.
* Only about 1 out of 8 adults floss regularly. Almost every household
owns a dispenser of dental floss, however, it's usually in a forgotten
corner of the medicine cabinet.
* Most adults do little, if anything, to maintain oral hygiene throughout
the day, especially after meals or snacks.
* Putting off that routine visit to the dentist has become a habit.
SToday, dentists don't have to extract many teeth because they are |
"' rotten" (an old expression for cavity-riddled, destroyed teeth).
, However, control of tooth decay doesn't mean that everyone can look
are extracted today because of gum disease.
It is estimated that 'there are 30 million toothless Americans. This
number increases every year. Many more are partially toothless, ,
primarily due to gum disease not cavities.
