Ea gle Point Club water tower gets a reprieve


Mayor: "Are they to be
awarded for neglect?"

BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Developers of Eagle Point
Club had words like "willful
neglect" :tossed their way
Tuesday for their treatment of
the site's historic water tower.
Venice City Council mem-
bers couldn't decide whether


the homeowners association
must honor the 15-year-old
preannexation agreement
stating the tower along
with several other Eagle Point
structures on the National
Registry of Historic Places -
is to be preserved and main-
tained.
Mayor Dean Calamaras
and area historical preserva-
tionists were critical of the
Eagle Point developers and
homeowner association. The


water tower has fallen into
disrepair, the metal tank has
crumbled and a 20-foot palm
tree is growing up the middle
of the tower a stark con-
trast to photos showing a
well-maintained tower in
1990.
Eagle Point needs city
council's blessing to demolish
the tower because the prean-
nexation agreement states it
must be preserved.
"Are they to be awarded for


neglect?" the mayor asked of
staff.
Staff was directed to review
the original 1991 agreement
that brought Eagle Point into
city limits, the changes made
to that agreement in 1997 and
the type of development that
was supposed to go in there.
Council could make a
decision in two weeks.
Not Mother Nature
Eagle Point Club was


founded in 1916 as an exclu-
sive resort frequented by
Northerners. It was Sarasota
County's oldest continually
operating business when it
shut down in 1989 after being
sold.
The developers who
bought the site, just north of'
Hatchett Creek Bridge and
Harbor Lights, petitioned for
annexation in 1991 in order to
obtain city services such as
water and fire and police pro-


tection.
In exchange for all of that,
the city exacted historic
preservation requirements.
A presentation by Venice
Archives Director. Dorothy
Korwek and Historical Preser-
vation Board chair Janis Fawn
showed how in 1997 city
council approved amend-
ments to the original annexa-
tion deal, redrawing the

SAYING GOODBYE: COLLECTION CLEARANCE


Closing shop after


a mere 50 years


Sui PHOTOS B .EFF TAVAPE:, Ira.,are.,i.veniceggr.dolier.con
Delma Lanius, 83, stands in her antique shop in Nokomis. Lanius has operated the shop for 50 years.


A landmark Nokomis
shop representing
three generations of
antique dealers closes
its doors after a half
century.
BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

The parents of Delma
and Woodrew Lanius were
antique collectors in Salem,
Mass. So it wasn't a stretch
when the Laniuses decided
to go into the field upon
arriving in Florida in the
early 1940s.
They can remember
when there was no U.S. 41
Bypass or Interstate 75 and
U.S. 41 was one lane each
way.
Tn 1948 they bought a
home in Nokomis and set"
up their antique store, The
Connoisseur's Shop, 104 E.
Nippino Trail off U.S. 41.
Since then they've been


transforming their small
home into a 16-room resi-
dence with an attached an-
tique shop.
Along the way they made
many friends, !and traveled
the world three times over.
Their home is a throwback
in time, remodeled until it
resembled a museum, with
hundreds of portraits, paint-
ings, artifacts. and col-
lectibles .that chronicle a
lifetime of adventure.
Last year the Laniuses
decided to close the shop.
But loyal customers kept
coming back until they
agreed to a final close-out
sale scheduled for this
Saturday and Sunday.
Daughter Eugenie, a
third-generation antique
dealer who owns the an-
tique shop across the street,
spent the past few days
putting 8,000 price tags on
treasured objects, readying
for the final sale. An estate

Where the sidewalk ends


Dreams of
interconnected bike
paths are stalled amid
finger-pointing by
county and city staff.
BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Few sights rival the 1-mile
stretch of South Harbor Drive
leading to Caspersen Beach
Park, filled w.vith wildlife and
native Florida plants.
Many residents and -isi-
tors believe a person must
walk or bicycle that stretch of
road in order to appreciate its
true beauty.
But that can be hazardous


to your health, as a member
of the Sarasota Manatee Bi-
cycle Club found out Satur-
day during a biking event
around die island of Venice.
Most of the ride which
included novice and expert
riders was on bike paths
and sidewalks. But the bike
lane on South Harbor Drive
ends a little more than a mile
away from the Venetian
Waterway Park bike path at
Caspersen Beach.
So riders must share a nar-
row. two-lane road that lacks
any berm or shoulders. Blow-
ing sand often covers die road
and piles up on the edges,
which was what caused dtis
rider to wreck her bicycle,
according to club member


Sue Lang.
"Fornunately she was not
seriously injured." Lang
pointed out in an e-mail to
City Manager Martry Black.
-This road needs to be swept
weekly (to remove sand). It is
only a matter of dime before a
cyclist or pedestrian has a
more serious accident involv-
ing a motor vehicle on this
road because it is so narrow.
... We urge you to give this
suggestion consideration be-
fore there is a fatality on this
road."
Not the first request
The city manager agrees
with Lang's assessment. Bi-

This 1 -mile stretch of road leading to Caspersen Beach Park
lacks sidewalks and bike lanes and often is covered up by
blowing sand, making navigation dangerous for bicyclists and
pedestrians trying to reach the park. A rider on a cycling tour
of Venice injured herself over the weekend while attempting
to avoid oncoming cars.

Road impact fees could be raised substantially


BY BOB REDDY
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


Deciding who should carry
the burden of building and'
improving new roads will not
be answered Wednesday as
Sarasota County commis-
sioners decide whether to
increase road impact fees.
What will be decided is the
amount the impact fees will
increase now.
That increase is expected
to be set at about 15 percent

range for other types of new

The new cost will be $2,874
for single-family homes. The
current fee rate is $2,499 for a

opment goes from $32.41 for

any increase in impact fees,
since fees can cut into their
bottom line and raise costs
for prospective homeowners
and businesses. They also
argue the fees are going to
pay for the county's past
shortcomings in dealing with
the road system.
. But as far as county offi-
cials are concerned, this argu-
ment does not change the
reality of the transportation
crisis faced by the county as it

Commissioner Ion Thax-

often push any increase in
fees onto a buyer.
"We won't be hurting their
bottom line," Thaxton said.
He added he would prefer
to widen the discussion and
start from scratch with all
impact fees and charge new
residents for roads that would
be built to accommodate
them.

If Thaxton had his way,

Park rules protested

From the Jan. 16, 1975, Venice Gondolier Sun.


STAFF REPORT


More than 60 unhappy
residents packed Venice City
Hall Tuesday evening to
object to new rules for the
Venice Municipal Mobile
Home Park.
The unhappy crowd pro-
tested the hearing on new
rules for the park on the
grounds they had not been
given a chance to see the
document.
The park residents com-
plained the first knowledge


they had of the. proposed
new rules was an item ap-
pearing in the newspapers.
They said they had been
given no advance notice, nor
had they been given a copy
of the rules to read.
City council was surprised
to find the residents were
uninformed and immedi-
ately granted a two-week
continuance to allow the
residents to familiarize them-
selves with the new rules.
Council members said
they had been under the

impression the new rules and
a proposed new lease had
been posted by park manager
Blanche (Celli) Parisi. -
Residents also were con-
cerned they might not be
able to continue living in-their
present homes. One new
rule requires that all mobile
homes be a minimum of 12
feet wide and 44 feet long.
But the rule only applies to
new mobile homes or when
an owner gives up possession
of his smaller unit by sale or


death. Owners who presently
have 10-foot wide units may
not sell them for use in the
park.
Another bone of con-
tention is a ruling that park
residents may not have out-
door television antennas.
Since indoor reception
would be impossible, accord-
ing to most residents, they
would be required to sub-
scribe to local TV cable ser-
vice in order to watch televi-
sion.


Tropical Bob:


Goodbye swirl

Hasn't the weather been
gorgeous?
Tropical Bob thinks it has
been just about perfect. No
jacket needed at any hour.
But a cold front is coming
today. Not a bad one. Just w IV
one that will drop us 10
degrees back to where we
should be in January in
Florida..
Good thing, too.
In the Caribbean Sea, near
the Yucatan Peninsula, a -
swirly mass of clouds was
visible in satellite images
Tuesday. Without the swat
provided by a cold front, such TROPICAL BOB
swirls can become tropical ;.. '
disturbances. This one will
die today.
But what happens when Florida border in a month or
cold fronts pull up at the two?

Bidding sluggish on a abandoned lots


BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
NORTH PORT EDITOR

With fewer than 100 bids,
the first few days of the city's
and county's tax lot auction
is off to a slow start.
However, Fisher Auction
Co. and county officials are
confident a bidding exchange
will occur closer to the auc-
tion's first-phase deadline.
Currently, the city of North
Port and Sarasota County
plan to split the sale of about
1,900 properties legally
referred to as escheated lots
- in North Port. Officials
estimate $40 million or more
can be raised through the
auction. However, only 76
bids were placed Friday for
the abandoned lots scattered
throughout North Port. Some
of the lots do not have city
water, electricity or the proper
online description. They are
being sold "as is."
Louis Fisher III of Fisher
AuctionCo. Inc., whose com-


Correction

Due to reporter error, a history
on the Venice Municipal Air-
port in the Jan. 22 edition of
the Sunday's Gondolier Sun
erroneously referred to paral-
lel runways; it should have
said parallel taxiways. A pub-
lic hearing was held last week
to outline the process for
updating the airport master
plan and to take public com-
ment. A draft of the airport
master plan update will be
presented at a future date.
The Gondolier Sun regrets the
error.


pany was hired to run the
auction, said Friday he knows
bidding will pick up..
"I am pleased so far," he
said. "I'm sure next week at
this time, we will see a lot
more activity."
Fisher, who was promot-
ing the lots from California
on Friday, said about 300
brokers are registered to help
bidders complete their pur-
chases.
The auction will occur in
two phases. A primarily on-
line auction runs until Feb.
20. Lots will be sold individ-
ually during this phase. On
Feb. 28, a live auction will
be held in the North Port
Performing Arts Center at
North Port High School. Fully
interactive online bidding
will also be available during
the live auction.
A cashier's check in the
amount of $5,000 is required
to place a bid. This amount
is not refundable if financing
is not secured for a winning
bid.
"The second phase will be
for the sale of whatever re-
mains," Fisher said. "Lots will
be sold in groupings of no
less than five."
Last minutes
Fisher spent $296,000 ad-
vertising the auction locally,
nationally, internationally
and on the Internet for 30 to
45 days before the auction.,
"I expect bidding to pick


up the last 24 hours before
the auction ends," Fisher said.
The proceeds from the
sale will be shared, with 55
percent going to North Port
and 45 percent to the county.
Sarasota County Commis-
sion Chairman David Mills
said some funds will be used
to address "important pro-
grams."
Ji "The Community Housing
Trust of Sarasota County will
benefit from some of the
county's share of the sale,
gaining money to jump start
the initiative to create af-
fordable housing," he said.
"North Port will use its pro-
ceeds to address infrastruc-
ture needs in the growing
community."
North Port commissioners
haven't formally discussed
how the money will be spent.
Sarasota County commis-
sioners committed $5 mil-
lion from lot sales to help
build North Port schools.
"Throughout the discus-
sions leading to the sale of
the properties, North Port
and Sarasota County repre-
sentatives have worked
closely and cooperatively on
all aspects of the agreement.
The sale process has shown
that the county and city can
work together cooperatively
* for the. good of all residents
of Sarasota County," Mills
said.
Anyone interested in bid-
ding on these lots can find


information ,on the county's
Web site at scgov.net or on
Fisher's Web site at fisherauc-
tion.com.

1-75 study to check speed limits, safety


Speed of travel and driving habits will be
analyzed to determine if 70 mph is the right limit
for the interstate in Sarasota County.


solve many of the issues in
South County.


"We are already three
lanes where we are having
more of the problems," he
said.
Cann said FDOT can seek
to try to add safety improve-
ments to the road, but he


admitted they have limited
impacts.
The speed limit was set in
1995 after the U.S. Congress
repealed its national speed
limit regulations of 55 mph.
According to a national


.highway study, less than 2
percent of all traffic deaths
occur at speeds in excess of
65 mph.
The study states that low-
ering the speed limit does
little to curb crashes and


actually increases them.
Most crashes occur be-
tween 20 mph and 50 mph,
the study states.

at: breddy@sun-herald.com.


Lowering the speed limit
on Interstate 75 is not going
to happen overnight.
In reality, it may never
happen.
Even so, a study of traffic
patterns along 1-75 in Man-
atee, Sarasota and Charlotte
counties is going to be done
to see if the highway is safe
at the current speed limit of
70 mph.
"We have been at a crisis,"
said Sarasota County Com-
missioner David Mills on
Monday about the current
rash of crashes and conges-
tion along 1-75.
Mills applauded the Flor-
ida Department of Transpor-
tation study that was con-
firmed during the.Sarasota-
M a n a t e e
Metropolitan
Planning
Organization
; ; meeting
Monday.
"Something
%-- ~ really needs
B he said. "We're
Mills killing people
-it seems to
me daily out there. It's
frustrating to me. Somewhere,
somehow, there has to be a
way to solve this problem."
Comfort level
Stanley Cann, the FDOT
District 1 secretary, said traffic
and speed studies are being
done all along the 1-75 corri-
dor.
"We will be looking at the
behavior of drivers, as well
as looking at their speed,"
Cann said.
Driver behavior will deter-
mine if crashes are being
caused because of excessive
speed or from bad habits
such as aggressive driving
and illegal lane changes.
Mills said he heard about
two more bad crashes on
1-75 Monday morning on his
short drive to the meeting.
"It has to stop," he said,
though he added, "As a board,:
we have no authority to
change anything."
While Cann-said the study
is being done now, he could
offer no guarantees the speed
limit will be lowered based
on state criteria.
Those criteria sets the
standard limit at the 85th
percentile of drivers. That
means 85 percent of drivers
on the road at any given time
are going at or above a spe-
cific speed. The number set-
tled on by FDOT is typically
a speed limit within 5 mph
of that.
"I don't know if we will
lower it or not," Cann said.
"Drivers normally drive at
speeds that they feel com-
fortable at."
20-50 mph
t As the population grows,
there is going to be more
traffic, and congestion will
naturally cause a slowing of
vehicles.
"Speeds tend to lower in
urban areas, and they are
adjusted accordingly," Cann
said.
He, cited the example of
Orlando, which has a speed
limit of 55 mph.
"We don't want to artifi-
cially lower it," Cann said.
"We are going to study that
to see if it is necessary, be-
cause' of the traffic volume
we are experiencing.
Mills said he believes

Road 681, or mile marker 200,

District pilots new

performance-based diploma


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Roughly 80 Booker High
students who have a hard
time in school are getting the
treatment ... in a good way.
They're getting intensive
one-on-one and family coun-
seling and a personal com-
puter, and being allowed to
complete course work at their
own pace and placed on a
vocational track all under
the watchful eye of a daily
support network.
Jan. 3 marked the first day
of school for students in the
pilot program. It's being fund-,
ed by a $450,000 grant, the
largest ever awarded by the
Community Foundation of
Sarasota.
"It has taken a miraculous
chain of events getting
schools set up, teachers in
place, students ready to
pull off this holiday miracle,"
said Superintendent Gary
Norris.
Sarasota's high school
graduation rate continues to
rise, up to 81.7 percent for
the 2004-05 school year. The
county dropout rate fell from
2.9 percent in 2003-04 to 2.8
percent in 2004-05. The cum-
ulative dropout rate for the
last four years is 12.2 percent.
"Any number of dropouts
is unacceptable," Norris said
after dropout rates were
released for this school year.
"For this reason, plans are in
place to begin a Performance-
Based Diploma in each of our
high schools by the next
school year. This program
was highly successful in re-
ducing the dropout rate
when I was superintendent
in Indian River County."
Norris described the Per-
formance-Based Diploma
Program as a three-pronged
program for high school stu-
dents who are not successful
inj the typical high school.
Three prongs
The first prong dedicates a
computer to failing students
to work at their own pace,
Norris said. Certified teachers
are available to assist in in-
struction if necessary.


As students meet the re-
quired competencies in each
course, they receive credit.
These students must also
demonstrate knowledge pro-
ficiency through the FCAT.
In addition to the regular
academic program, students
are enrolled in career and
technical classes prong
number two that will lead
to completion of a vocational
program.
The third prong involves
each student receiving daily
support through a counselor
with a mental health back-
ground. Group counseling
and individual mentoring
will support students who
are dealing with family and
personal problems that may
interfere with learning.
"Many of the strategies
outlined in NeXt Generation
Learning are designed to
address the challenges repre-
sented by our dropout statis-
tics. But these programs re-
quire more than the funding
provided at the state level.
They require continued
support of the community
through the extension of the
millage levy," Norris said.
Almost 350 students drop
out of Sarasota County
schools each year.

Zero-based budgeting strikes out


The Sarasota County School Board begins
talks on next year's budget while staff members
work on ironing out a couple of system glitches.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


A Sarasota County School
Board workshop last week
disappointed at least two
members hoping to look at
the budget process a little dif-
ferently.
The board members dis-
cussed consensus guidelines
as. they began the budget
process for next year.
What they agreed upon
was to bring back for consid-
eration a budget model
aligned with district goals to
lower dropout rates, close the
achievement gap and en-
hance career and technical
education.
Two ideas didn't gain con-
sensus by the board.
Kathy Kleinlein proposed
zero-based budgeting for at
least one school as an altern-
ative way of looking at ex-
penses.
"It eliminates two things,"
Kleinlein said, "guessing and
averaging out costs. In zero-
based budgeting, .you have to
use exactly what it costs. I
know it takes more people to
create that kind of budget,
but I think in the long run it
gives you a more accurate
picture of costs,"

As rationale, Kleinlein
pointed to last year's budget
that assumed an 18-percent
increase in medical costs
that never materialized.
"I would have liked to see
just one Title 1 elementary
school (go through the proc-
ess), just to see if it would
help us financially," she said.
'Implicit assumption'"
Board member Laura
Benson wanted to halt the
spending of what she called
"excess" nonrecurring refer-
endum dollars on. recurring
expenditures.
Because nearly 85 percent
of the school district budget
is recurring expenses (school
employee salaries and bene-
fits), that triggered a lively
discussion that sent one
board member's pen flying
through the air and led board
president Carol Todd to say
"There was an implicit as-
sumption we would come
back and seek another refer-
endum."
Member Frank Kovach
said he was unwilling to iden-
tify cuts that might or might
not take place under this sce-
nario.
Benson tried to .refocus
the discussion on reserve


funds in excess of the 10 per-
cent allowed by policy, which
are typically moved forward
at year's end into the next
year's operating budget, but
the cat was out of the bag.
An estimated $20 million
in reserve funds was moved
into the operating budget last
year.
Smart Web not so smart
Sarasota County is still try-
ing to finalize thousands of
high school report cards that
had to be reprinted when the
district's "new Smart Web
computer grading and track-
ing system incorrectly calcu-
lated grades. School officials
said the problem was limited
to high schools and chalked
it up to growing pains with
the new technology.
District officials said the
computer program allocated a
certain value to assignments
and final exams in the overall
grade, while teachers allocat-
ed varying amounts. Spokes-
woman Sheila Weiss said cor-
rected report cards are due by
today (Wednesday).
"This was a product that
had to be modified to make it
work. Once Venice High
(which piloted the program
last year) got it the way it
wanted it, it had to be re-
adapted to the other high
schools. Some of the flaws
are with the product itself.
Some were with the fact that


the program was being
changed as we were training
teachers to use it," Weiss said.
Smart Web was supposed
to allow parents to track their
children's grades and school
attendance at all county high
schools back in December,
but implementation was de-
layed. The district hopes to
have the tracking feature on-
line for parents to access by
March.
Opt-out notification
delayed
School district administra-
tors forgot to trigger a parent
notification letter last semes-
ter allowing their children to
opt out of a high school Life
Management Course that
addressed sexual reproduc-
tion and birth control.
After Venice High parents
objected to visiting speakers
from Planned Parenthood in
2004, the school district re-
vamped its policy on the
course. If schools decided to
use outside speakers from
organizations like Planned
Parenthood, it also had to
offer a parallel class without
guest speakers.
Only Riverview High and
Booker High opted to provide
both classes. When the
schools realized opt-out let-
ters weren't sent out prior to
the beginning of the semes-
ter, they zipped off a letter of
their own.

County surveying
about mosquitoes
Nobody likes mosquitoes.
But what should we be doing
about them?
Sarasota County Mosquito
Management Services is
seeking input on this ques-
tion from homeowners.
Six hundred and fifty sur-


veys will be arriving at ran-
domly selected addresses in
nine areas of the county this
week.
Every five years MMS con-
ducts a survey to keep pace
with the changing needs of
the community.
"This is a chance for resi-
dents to influence how MMS
operates," said Laurie Tarle-


ton, program specialist. "It is
important for those who
receive the survey to fill them
out and return them."
The survey results will be
published on the Sarasota
County Web site, scgov.net, in
July-
At that time, residents can
also contact Mosquito Man-
agement Services at 861-9741


for a report of the survey
results.
Third East Venice
Avenue workshop set
A public workshop for
property owners and other
interested parties in the East
Venice Avenue planning area
is scheduled for 9 a.m.-noon,
Feb. 4, at the Frances T.


Bourne Jacaranda Public
Library, 4143 Woodmere Park
Blvd., Venice.
This is the third of a series
of workshops to develop a
vision-based plan for the East
Venice Avenue area.
This workshop will ask
participants to suggest
changes, if any, they want for
the area.


The program is free and
open to the public.
No reservations are neces-
sary.
For additional informa-
tion, contact the Sarasota
County Call Center at 861-

ning area.


ENDS ,,. A


cycle groups, walkers, tourists
and others are backing Venice
Area Beautification Inc. the
nonprofit group that built the
Intracoastal Waterway bike
path in its efforts to inter-
connect all the island paths.
Just don't expect to see
changes happening anytime
soon, because Venice has no
control over the installation
of sidewalks and bike paths
along South Harbor Drive,
Black said.


A half mile into that stretch
of road is city limits, and the
rest of the Caspersen Beach
area is unincorporated Sara-
sota County. County commis-
sioners have declined invita-
tions of annexation which
would allow the city to pro-
vide police patrols, drinking
water, sewer service to the
park and sidewalks to the
park.
These services also could
be provided without annexa-


tion through a complicated
interlocal agreement.
Unfortunately, that
requires a high level of discus-
sion between city and county
staffs that doesn't appear pos-
sible, according to Black.
County Administrator Jim
Ley sent a memo to Black in
late November asking to open
talks on extending sewage
and water lines' along South
Harbor Drive and to Cas-
persen Beach. The memo


SHARING THE ROADS
This is the second of a series
of stories about a lack of side-
walks and bicycle paths in the
Venice area. The first story, on
Jan. 20, dealt with city streets
on the island. If your neigh-
borhood lacks adequate side-
walks and bicycle paths, e-
mail Assistant Editor JJ.
Andrews at jandrewsi@
venicegondolier.com.


states the county would pay
to build the sewage and water
lines and restrict them to only
serve the needs of Caspersen
Beach, which lacks running
water, sewer service and elec-
tricity.
Sarasota County obtained
grants to help pay for the con-
struction of Caspersen Beach
Park. Some of that money
must be repaid if permanent
restroom facilities are not
installed.


In Black's response letter,
the city manager said Venice
and the county should look
beyond utility lines and at
helping make the VABI bike
path a reality.
He's still waiting for a
countyresponse.
"I say, 'Let's talk about this,'
and I get silence on the other
.end," Black said.

preservation lines to exclude
the water tower and pump
house.
Though they still had to be
maintained, the water tower
and pump house were now
part of a private lot owned by
the developer.
Korwek said she was not
consulted during the changes
in 1997, and she would have
opposed them if she was.
Some suspect the develop-
er allowed the tower and
pump house to fall into disre-
pair so they must be demol-


ished, giving the property
owner more land to build on.
"The deterioration is not
from Mother Nature," Fawn
said. "It is from willful ne-
glect."
Not our fault
Tim Craig, of the Eagle
Point Homeowners Associ-
ation, said the association
only took over Eagle Point in
2002, and blamed the devel-
oper for allowing the water
tower to fall apart.
City Attorney Bob Ander-


son pointed out, however,
that it was the homeowner
association's obligation to
double check, all require-
ments before assuming legal
and financial responsibility.
During questioning, coun-
cil members asked who own-
ed the lot. Craig would only
say the developer owned the
lot until recently. He also said
he is not aware of future
development plans.
According to a check of the
Sarasota County Property
Appraiser's Office, the owners


are Wayne A. and Karen Rob-
erts of Venice, who purchased
the site Aug. 10, 2005, for
$337,500.
Until two months ago,
Wayne Roberts was the long-
time supervisor of city coun-
cil member Bill Willson at
Roberts Insurance Agency.
Willson knew his former
boss owned the property, but
did not mention it because he
didn't see any reason to bring
them into this, Willson said in
an interview. He also said he
doesn't believe there's any


sort of personal conflict in his
rendering a decision.
After the meeting, City
Attorney Bob Anderson was
asked for his opinion, and
said he does not see where
any conflict exists. The state
law says a council member or
family member must receive
"personal gain" as a result of
his or her vote, and that has
not happened here.
During Tuesday's discus-
sion, Willson was the most
vocal in supporting demoli-
tion of the water tower. He


fears the city, will make itself
liable to damages if Venice
orders a tower be rebuilt or
renovated and then it blows
onto a home during a hurri-
cane.
"Was it right in the first
place to build a wooden
structure there (in 1916)?"
Willson said. "I'm having a
hard time with the logic. ...
I'm approaching this from a
safety standpoint."

FEES from Page IA
have to pay for everything
through property taxes. It just
won't be fair to people who
already live here to pay for
roads for the new arrivals."
He uses the example of the
county's long-range trans-
portation plan, which pro-
jects transportation needs to
2030. Based on the current fee
schedule, the money just
doesn't add up.
Sarasota County would
need about $1.8 billion in
road work done to keep up
with expected growth. That
does not include transit
needs, Interstate 75 and sev-
eral other projects that'


receive their funding from
other sources.
With a projected 100,000
new homes being built in the
coming years, at $2,874 per
home, the money raised
would total about $287.4 mil-
lion, leaving a transportation
shortfall of more than $1.5
billion.
"This 15 percent increase
is just'the first 'step and only
affects new building, not any-
one already established,"
Thaxton said.
Simple idea, tough sell
Thaxton said there are
political and economic rea-
sons why the commissioners
"may or may not want impact


fees to fund the total costs for
new growth infrastructure.
But as it is now, we don't even,
know what that cost is."
He admits getting his idea
of zero-balance growth is
going to be a tough sell
Wednesday and in the future.
"It is a simple idea, but
educating people about the
good it would do is going to
be tough," Thaxton said.
He has asked county staff
to provide the answers to
basic questions, such as:
How much will it cost to
build the roads needed by
new growth over a given peri-
od of time and how'much
money are impact fees ex-
pected to generate over that


same time period?
What transportation net-
work is required to imple-
ment Sarasota County's
adopted Comprehensive Plan
to maintain a Level of Service
C (and D for state roads)?
What would such a trans-
portation network look like,
how much would it cost and
how much revenue would be
available to build it?
If approved, the impact fee
change would go into effect
Monday, Feb. 27. All building
permits applied for prior to
that date would be exempt
from the new fees.
The board is expected to
take up the issue Wednesday
during its afternoon session


at 1:30 p.m. at the Sarasota
County Administration Cen-
ter, 1660 Ringling Blvd., Sara-


sota.

END OF AN ERA

uled for this Saturday and
Sunday at The Connoisseur's
Shop at 104 East Nippino Trail

What he wrought
Brick and wrought iron are
everywhere around the shop.
Most of the work was done by
Woodrew while he was work-
ing as a marine contractor
.and Delma was running, the
antique shop and raising their
daughter.
Old bricks pave the park-
ing area and walls that con-
tinue all around the property.
Wrought iron fencing adorns
the top of all the brick walls.
Lanius forged more wrought
iron from found pieces into a
handsome gate to the back
yard.
Inside the shop and house,
Lanius turned his artistic abil-
ities to painting at the sugges-


tion of his wife when he was
about 50 years old. An
untrained artist, he soon was
painting trailing vines, leaves
and flowers around doorways
and hallways. He used special
glass paint to highlight special
works of art, like the cabinet
that once lined the home of
Ringling Bros.' Believe It ,Or
Not museum. He created
marble floors throughout the
house using his own design.
Across the street, he re-
modeled his. daughter's house
and helped turn that into an
antique shop, although it's
been closed the past year.
Eugenie is. considering clos-
ing her shop as well, since she
has little free time to run it.

Before he retired, Lanius

He also built several houses in
Venice Gardens as well as the
Tarpon Center Marina.

County exploring penny bed-tax options


State law allows the imposition of a tourist tax up
to 5 cents on the dollar. Sarasota County's current
3-cent tax generates about $7 million a year.


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Getting your 2-cents'
worth can be difficult when
there are movie things to
spend the money on than the
pennies will permit.
This is the problem facing
the Sarasota County Tourist
Development Council as sev-
eral interest groups hope one
of the two pennies remaining
in the bed-tax option, can
help them with their projects.
"There are only two pen-
nies and we need to get
straight on our priorities,"
said County Commissioner
Nota Patterson, who also
chairs the council. "This is a
very complex discussion. Lots
of people want a piece of the
money."
The council heard two
pitches Thursday as part of its
regular meeting and also dis-
cussed some of the other


options it has for the money.
Council members ulti-
mately agreed to let the dis-
cussion continue during their
next few meetings before
making a decision.
The splits
One ,pitch proposed using
most of a penny for the mar-
keting efforts by the Sarasota
Convention and Visitors Bur-
eau. The other pitch pro-
posed using the money to
help pay the debt on a possi-
ble conference center/hotel
to be situated at the Sarasota
County Fairgrounds.
The first three pennies of
the tourist bed tax option
generates more than $7 mil-
lion each year, according to
county tax collector statistics.
The tax is collected on each
dollar spent in a Sarasota
County hotel bed.
The first penny is being
used for beach maintenance.


The second is split 50-50 for
arts and promotion. The third
is split 70 percent for beach
renourishment and 30 per-
cent for promoting tourism.
According to state law and
county ordinance, the fourth
penny can be used for a con-'
vention center, supporting a
pro-sports franchise or pro-
motion. Also, all of the money
may be used as a debt service
on bonds.
The fifth penny can be
used for the sports franchise
or tourism promotion and
has the same debt service
abilities.
Secret paradise
Virginia Haley, the execu-
tive director of the visitors
bureau, and James McMane-
mon, chair of the bureau's
board of directors, told the
council the county lags far
behind others when it comes
to promoting itself.
The reason is from budget
consolidation by the bureau
in the past few years, com-
bined with escalating adver-
tising costs and increased


competition from across
Florida and the country for
tourism dollars.
"Sarasota is considered a
paradise and the best-kept
secret around," McManemon
said.. "That is not where we
want Sarasota to be. An in-
vestment into stronger tour-
ism is what we need."
Haley said the bureau
would use 75 percent of the
money generated from the
fourth penny for advertising
and promotion efforts. The
rest of the money, she said,
could be placed in a trust for
use at a later time for whatev-
er the county deemed neces-
sary.
"We are facing new chal-
lenges," Haley said. "Hurri-
canes, red tide, avian flu,
shark attacks and being called
the "Meanest City" all need
to be dealt with."
The money, about $1.7
million a year, would gener-
ate $48 million in visitor
spending annually, McMane-
mori said.
He said those numbers are
based on industry-wide for-


mulas on spending money.
"We have done a good job
with scarce resources," he
said. "The reality is that we
are losing market share."
Conference report
The council also heard a
presentation from J.C. Ebach,
of John Q. Hammond Indus-
tries, who said his company is
interested in building a con-
ference center with a hotel at
the fairgrounds.
Ebach said he wants a
penny tax to help pay off the
debt of a 40,000-square-foot
conference center for about
$30 million.
Hammond Industries
would agree to pay a quarter
of the debt and cover center
budget shortfalls for the first
several years.
Council members were
surprised by the relatively low
cost versus other proposals
that ranged near $70 million.
Ebach said the cost esti-
mate is based on a potential
deal with fairgrounds officials
donating the land.
Other locations are possi-


ble if a fairgrounds deal falls
through, he said.
Council member Kather-
ine Moulton said she was
worried about having a con-
ference center so far from the
central core of hotels.
Ebach said 'having an ef-
fective shuttle service would
solve that issue since his
hotel, with, up to 500 rooms,
would need support from
other hotels in the area for the
conference center to succeed.
While the council had
praise and concern for both
proposals, they realized that
more proposals are forth-
coming and held off on mak-
ing any decisions.
They also discussed the
need to renovate and upgrade
Ed Smith Stadium to keep the.
Cincinnati Reds in Sarasota
for spring training.
The council will hear more
information from fairgrounds
officials in February, and
about the needs of the stadi-
um by March.

Regional planning council agrees to referendum on transportation needs


BY BOB REQDY
STAFF WRITER

An effort to put transporta-
tion issues at the forefront of
political debate in Florida got
off the ground Thursday.
The Southwest Florida
Regional Planning Council
met in Fort Myers and agreed
10-9 to send a request to
counties across the state to
push a vote asking the state to
identify Florida's transporta-
tion needs and provide a way
to pay for any shortfalls.
The statewide referendum
would demand the .stat,.
.Legislature, come. up. ,\.ih,.a-


plan to solve the current
transportation crisis and
come up with a way to pay for
it over the next 10, 20 and 30
years.
Charlotte County Com-
missioner Adam Cummings
said the referendum is only
an advisory .and does not
force the Legislature to take
any real action.
"The idea is to bring some
political pressure. on the
state," Cummings said.
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Jon Thaxton said the
goal of the motion is to gener-
ate enough support in
enough counties tQbring lthO.

Sarasota County focuses on commercial recycling


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Forty years may seem like
a long time, but it really isn't,
especially in terms of the life
expectancy of the Sarasota
County landfill.
This was the information
Dr. Mary Jelks, chair of the
Solid Waste Management Cit-
izens Advisory Board, deliv-
ered to county commission-
ers recently.
Jelks said the advisory
board has focused on increas-
ing the life of the landfill and
diverting waste by increasing
the enforcement of commer-
cial and residential recycling.


"It isn't that long," she said of
the 40-year project life span.
She said that number
might be too optimistic, as
the recent growth spurt has
brought more solid waste to
the landfill than ever before.
Adding to the problems is
that "commercial recycling is
not as successful as we'd like it
to be," Jelks added.
Enforcing the solid-waste
ordinance is one way to help
curb the flow of trash, but it
goes much further.
In an effort to determine
what is really being brought
to the landfill, Gary Bennett,
the county's general manger
for solidwaste, said an audit


is going to be done in the
spring.
"We have a baseline (of av-
erage trash) from years ago
and we will compare to what
we are dealing with now,"
Bennett said.
Encouraged
The audit will determine
what is going into the landfill
and how much could be recy-
cled. To do this, the staff piles
the solid waste in a separate
area and sifts through it.
Bennett said the focus will
be on the commercial solid
waste, because it is the great-
est unknown.
Commissioners wondered


what rules existed for busi-
nesses and what they could
offer.
Bennett said businesses are
encouraged to recycle but
must hire a private contractor
to provide a container to dump
the trash and haul it away.
"This can be cost-prohibi-
tive," Bennett said.
The county has four peo-
ple who conducted roughly
1,000 commercial recycling
inspections in 2005.
"We really focus on larger
generators," he said, noting
the school district is helping
to curb its solid waste and
improve recycling efforts.
"I'm encouraged by that


because they must generate
an unbelievable amount of
trash," said commissioner
Nora Patterson. "Think of all
of the paper they use."
Commission Chair David
Mills said recycling and the
proper disposal of solid waste
need to begin at the county-
government level.
"Charity begins at home,"
-Mills said. "We have to set an
example right here."
Confusion
Jelks said the school dis-
trict is improving rapidly, but
that will only go so far until
there is a consistent South-
west Florida program for


recycling and waste disposal.
"It's very confusing for
people," she said of the differ-
ent rules for recycling for
each community in the re-
gion. "If you live in the city of
Sarasota or Venice, your rules
are different than the rest of
the county."
While much of the meet-
ing focused on the landfill
and recycling programs, Jelks
said the advisory board is also
working on developing a
corhprehensive debris man-
agement plan for disaster
debris.
"We need to be better pre-
pared and have things in
place," she said.


Affordable housing committee kicks-off efforts to address issues


c
. BYBOB REDDY
I STAFF WRITER

A group of people met
Friday morning at Colonial
Oaks Park for one reason:
affordable housing.
The Community Housing
Inclusionary Program Work
Group held its kick-off meet-
ing with the focus on creating
a program that encourages
developers to build homes
c that are affordable to the
workers of Sarasota County.
"We have a herculean task
- before us," saidWendyThom-.
as, the county's community
- housing manager.
The group is meeting on a
e weekly basis to craft the
e development of the commu-
nity housing implementing
- regulations.
The issue of affordable
housing has become more
apparent in the past two years


as housing prices have sky-
rocketed, leaving families
who earn less than $55,000
per year priced out of the
housing market.
Gerard Violette, executive
director of hospitality services
at Sarasota Memorial Hospit-
al, said he was participating
in. the work group because
more and more of the hospi-
tal's employees cannot afford
to live in the county.
"It is a crisis for us," Violette
said. "We are having a hard
time getting people to come'
and work for us."
The county approved a
change to its comprehensive
plan to address the issue of
affordable-workforce hous-
ing and the group now has
until early April to create a
program that makes it easy
for developers to provide
affordable housing.
Thomas is providing infor-


nation about similar efforts
throughout the country but,
said this group is starting with
a clean slate.
"What we decide as a
group will determine policy,"
she said. "This is new and in-
novative. The possibilities are
endless."
Units, not money
The group is tasked to deal
with a number of issues.
As it stands now, develop-
ers are expected to set aside
15 percent of their homes for
affordable housing. There is a
process in which the develop-
er can opt not to build the
affordable units and pay a fee
instead.
"The board focus is on
what is going to come to the
ground," Thomas said. "They
want to see units, not a trust
fund with a lot money and no
housing."


The percentage could be
changed by the work group as
part of the inclusionary pro-
gram.
The target home price is
currently $200,000 or less,
which is the maximum some-
one earning the area median
income can afford.


The goal is to serve the
needs of people seeking to
live and work in. the county
and development communi-
ty.
Friday's discussion focus-
ed on the needs of developers
who are looking at the bottom
line and what incentive they


might have to build the af-
fordable housing versus pay-
ing the fee.
The group includes repre-
sentatives of the community,
including developers, busi-
ness owners, bankers, non-
profit organizations and oth-
ers.

addressing and it will not hurt
any other efforts to retrieve
the lost transportation dol-
lars.
In order for the initiative to
gain support as a statewide
issue, Thaxton said a lobbying
group like the Florida Associ-
ation of Counties would need
to champion it.
Mercier said his reason for
bringing the issue forward
now is to make sure it is a


topic in the November elec-
tions.
Thaxton said the referen-
dum is just one aspect of
changing the state's view of
transportation issues.
He said each year the
Legislature raids the trans-
portation trust fund to pay for
other projects, and that prac-
tice needs to end.
"The citizens taxed them-
selves under the promise the


money would be put in the
trust fund and only be used
for transportation needs,"
Thaxton said.
For the referendum, or any
other initiative, to change the
way local transportation
needs are supported, Thaxton
said thepublic needs to be
better educated.
Until then, he said the
roads will continue to deteri-
orate.

Underwhelming ideas of how to spend surplus


lorida lawmakers will return to Talla-
hassee in February, saddled with a real
dilemma. How should they spend an
expected $3.1 billion surplus in state income?
Word is the state will realize the surplus
mostly because of hurricane reconstruction.
Following a devastating 2004, Florida took
hits from Hurricanes Wilma and Katrina in
2005.
When the winds stopped and the water
receded, the orders went out for shingles,
concrete and other building materials. On
top of that, the significant loss of housing has
pushed the price of homes to unheard-of
limits, and that swells state coffers with doc-
umentary stamp money (a tax on property
sales).
Legislators are already scrambling to
impress voters. Republicans want a tax-free


holiday one of their favorite perks.
Democrats want to send a $100 check to
everyone.
Both ideas fall short of really providing any
help for Floridians who are caught in the
post-hurricane economic pinch.
How far will a $100 check go? How much
do we really realize in savings during a tax-
free week?
Both ideas are about as helpful as lowering
the state gas tax for a week or two a couple of
years ago we all remember how we spent
that extra money, don't we?
Legislators need to funnel the surplus to
programs or projects that will actually make
an impact. Too often in the past few years, we
have heard Gov. Jeb Bush and lawmakers
paint a rosy financial picture only to turn
around and make cuts in health care and


road funding.
We have our own list of ideas how to spend
the potential $3 billion surplus:
Why shouldn't legislators be required to
replace the money they raided from state
trust funds last year?
How about a little support for a cash-
strapped Medicaid program?
Perhaps they could reopen G. Pierce
Wood Memorial Hospital and provide much-
needed mental health care for Southwest
Floridians who are seeing their jail popula-
tions swell with inmates who require med-
ication and counseling.
A few hurricane shelters along our most
vulnerable shorelines would be nice.
The list could go on. Schools, roads, health
care, neglected infrastructure are among a
number of areas that need a financial shot in


the arm.
We understand legislators' desire to con-
nect to voters. It is only normal to try to make
their constituents believe they are putting
money in their pocket. And, to their credit,
lawmakers know that a tax-free holiday or a
$100 check in the mail is an idea.that will
benefit everyone in Florida not just a se-
lect few.
But that $3 billion could do so much more.
Lawmakers should think again and ask
their constituents what they really want. Do
they want a one-time $100 tax rebate, or
would they prefer to see funding restored for
projects like roads, Medicaid and hurricane
shelters things with a more lasting value?
It's time for real leadership and some long-
term thinking, not the usual pandering to
voters.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Move water tower and save it


Editor:
I am a resident of Central Ohio but I frequently come to the
Venice area to visit. I enjoy reading the Gondolier Sun online
and keeping up the local events.
Today I read that, once again, the people of Venice and the
residents of Eagle Point are at odds over what to do with the
water tower.
. At one time, the residents of Columbus and the city of
Columbus were at odds over our old Union Station. The city
needed the land to build a new convention center on, and the
local preservationists did not want to see the historic building
-lost. The fact of the matter was that the building was in poor
condition and not really worth saving.
To make everyone happy, the main arch of the building was
saved and moved to an area where everyone could enjoy it.
Wouldn't it make sense to move the old Venice water tower in a
similar way?
The tower now sits in the middle of a gated community and
you can't really see'it from outside the gates. In all honesty, if
the tower was torn down, no one in the area would know about
it unless they read about it in the paper because it can't be seen
and enjoyed where it is. If the structure were moved to a park
or other open area, all of the citizens of Venice could enjoy it
and the history it represents.
I feel that if the city of Venice were to do something similar
to what we did in Columbus with our arch, everyone would
benefit. The tower would be saved and placed somewhere
where everyone for many generations could enjoy it.

Just sell it
to the county

Editor:
What part of "No" does
John Konecnik not under-
stand?
The Sarasota County com-
missioners last year rejected
his plan for added develop-
ment and dock variance and
stated it would not be in the
best interest of the public or
the residents of Harbor
Lights. Konecnik has at-
tempted to take away their
rights to their present docks
and the water table at the
docks. There must be no ex-
ception.
The Army Corps of En-


gineers gave in, as did the De-
partment of Environmental
Protection. They are not
elected officials and do not
represent the public interests,
or obviously it would be a dif-
-ferent situation.
Konecnik has failed to
meet the time requirements
for those permits. There
should be no further excep-
tions or extensions.
Konecnik is threatening to
build an ugly boat-storage
building that will affect the
north entrance appearance to
Venice. His concern for his
loss of revenue could be
solved if he would sell his
property to the county to
relieve the shortage of public


access.
Our representatives in
county and city government
must continue to represent
the citizens who elected them
to office, not give in to these
threats, and deny any special
exception for dock expansion
for the good of the city of
Venice and Sarasota County.
In fact, there should be
review in detail of the first
approval and consideration
given to rescinding it.
His threats have an aggres-
sive tone that indicates a less-
than-harmonious communi-
ty attitude toward the envi-
ronment, local residents, city
and county.

What more do we need?
Editor:
Sarasota County recently
paid a consultant $50,000 to
get his insight concerning the
county's attempts to rejuve-
nate Dearborn Street into a
vibrant commercial destina-
tion. I, being an amateur
everything, thought I'd take a
look.
On a leisurely stroll from
the east end toward Lemon
Bay one discovers a number
of improvements to the
street: benches, period light-
ing, some landscaping, brick
pavers all very nice touch-
es to make Dearborn more
pedestrian friendly.
Add some extra off-street
parking, boutiques, cafes, a
law office, hardware store
and, of course, the anchor for
the area, the most valuable
and beautiful location on
Lemon Bay, for what a tourist
or local shopper is always
looking for a funeral parlor.

Republicans, the conserv-
ative press and religious right
are making a big issue over
the Alito nomination. Does
the name Harriet Miers mean
anything to these hypocrites?
President Bush had select-
ed Harriet Miers as the "best
person for the Supreme
Court." The attacks on the
president and this poor wom-
an by these groups, and the
president's surrender to these
attacks, make one wonder
who is running the White

Did Harriet Miers get a fair
and open hearing? Does the

- Kudos for code enforcement


Codes enforced. I was calling with a positive comment
about the Sarasota County Code Enforcement Department in
the Venice area and South Venice. I have to admit that they did
a great job cleaning up a neighbor's property that was really
neglected, in shambles and just downright tacky. I made a
phone call to the code enforcement department at 861-3280
and within a couple weeks the problem was taking care of. It
was confidential; nobody knew who made the phone call. The
person on the line was pleasant and responsive. I believe they
could have more power and authority, but for my situation,
they took care of the trashy property next door to my house,
instantly raising my property value. My suggestion is to give it
a try.

No upside to

Editor:
Installing these speed
hump eyesores in this beauti-
ful area would destroy the

damaging effect on beauty

some of the negatives:
1) Delaying emergency

2) Pain to individuals with

3) Damage to vehicles,

4) Increased pollution,

slowing or stopping of traffic
5) Attracting children with
skateboards or riding bicycles
6) More road maintenance

Thaxton said the county
had a rule that requires areas
of 5 acres or more to present a
conceptual plan, prior to zon-
ing approval, that calls for a
"focal point" such as a river
walk, a playground, village
green, or features such as a
band shell. The code was
upgraded last year because
the county found that devel-
opers were arguing that a
clubhouse met the test of
such a focal point. There is a
formula that the county uses
to decide on the area for pub-
lic use in each instance.

leaving weak areas in the teeth. Fluoride in the mouth encourages
calcium and phosphate in saliva to go BACK INTO the teeth.
At this time, only Mother Nature knows how saliva coats the teeth by
forming a membrane on its surface enamel. One theory states that this
coating, controls the transfer of calcium and phosphate between the
saliva and the tooth.
Just as blood brings nutrients to the cells of the body to keep them
Healthy, saliva brings minerals to the teeth to keep them strong. You
might say that saliva is the "bloodstream of the teeth." So, for healthy
teeth, brush with a fluoride toothpaste use systemic fluroide and visit
your dentist on a regular basis.

He felt that regular council
meetings did not provide
enough opportunity to gather
information from staff or con-
sultants, review plans like the
county's and discuss issues,
leading to a comprehensive
Venice policy.
I think it is likely other
council members I did not
reach at this time would also
support the general direction
of planning future benefits to


all citizens from the city's
. growth, and I look forward to
the planning process.

Got a great real estate deal? B


BY KEN KLEINLEIN
CRIME SCENE COLUMNIST

The contemporary hot
button issue in our area today
is "affordable housing." There
does not seem to be enough
available.
Have you uncovered a resi-
dence with a price and loca-
tion that are literally too good
to be true? After viewing this
fabulous property, are you
planning to plunk down a
sizeable amount of cash be-
fore it is taken by someone
else? Beware!
There is a confidence
game well known in other
jurisdictions that is surfacing
in our region. The Apartment
Swindle Fraud has reared its
ugly head, based on the
shortage of reasonably priced
housing in our area.
Here is the modus operan-
di: An individual rents or sub-
leases a residential or com-
mercial property, paying a
month's rent in advance plus
a security deposit. This prime
piece of real estate is then
offered for rent or sale in the
classified sections of local
papers at a price dramatically
below what it is really worth.
The con artist then rents or
offers to sell the parcel to as
many people as possible, col-
lecting a month's rent plus a
security deposit for a rental, or
a down payment to hold the
propertyfor eventual sale.After


collecting all the monies he or
she can within a month, the
scam artist flees the scene.
The victims are told they
can occupy the premises at
the end of the current month.
Imagine the confusion and
dismay when 15, 20 or more
folks show up at the location
all expecting to move in at the
same time.
Another version of this
scam is perpetrated on folks
living in co-ops, projects,
housing complexes or other
dwellings. They are visited by
someone representing him-
self as an employee of the
complex. The victims are told
that for "up-front money,"
they could be moved into a
better apartment or facility
that is larger, on a lower floor,
or in a choice location.
Sometimes they are told
there will be a reduction in
their rent as well. When the
victim pays the amount
requested, the scam artist dis-
appears.
Here are some examples of
this scam in action:
Los Angeles, Calif. a
scam artist rented out as
many as 20 rooms in an aban-
doned inner city hospital as
apartments, requesting rents
of only $400 to $500 a month,
, and listing among the ameni-
ties a children's recreation
area that was formerly an
operating room. Since the
scam was discovered, city


agencies have been busy relo-
cating the scammed tenants.
Brooklyn, N.Y. police ar-
rested Iris Sheffield, 36, and
charged her with nine counts
of grand larceny for taking
security deposits and a
month's rent in the amount of
$1,300 each from a numbers
of victims.
Sheffield placed ads in
newspapers advertising a six-
room apartment for rent. She
had lived there until recently
and had a duplicate key, but
no permission to rent the
apartment.
She started the con when
she found out that the owner-
landlord had recently passed
away. Police learned of the
scam when two families who
knew each other discovered
they had rented the same
apartment.
One victim's plight is par-
ticularly sad. Her children
range in age from 7 months to
20 years, and she was told she
could move in at the end of
the month. She raised the
money to pay for the proper-
ty by borrowing from friends
and relatives. She is now
under an eviction notice at
her present apartment for
nonpayment of rent because
she spent all of her funds in
acquiring the new location.
While inthe NYPD I arrested
one Mike McDavid, 24, and
charged him with grand larce-
ny, criminal impersonation


)e careful


and fraudulent accosting, in
that he rented the same apart-
ment 15 times in Queens to a
number of people, collecting a
$350 security deposit and
another $350 -for the first
month's rent on each unit.
Manhattan, N.Y an elder-
ly woman living on the llth
floor of the Alfred E. Smith
apartments received a call
from a man who promised to
get her a more accessible
apartment on the first floor if
she paid him $300 under the
table. She paid the money, but
is still on the 11th floor.
Readers, if you are offered
a great deal on a terrific apart-
ment, property or location,
verify that it's on the market
and vacant by contacting the
registered owner or landlord.
Call the county property ap-
praiser's office at 861-8200, or
the tax collector at 861-8300.
Theywillsupplyyouwith accu-
rate information on the parcel
that appears to be an opportu-
nity too good to pass up.

County fire fighter"



negotiations stall


BY BOB REDDY
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


An impasse has been
declared by Sarasota County
government officials in the
negotiations between the
county and the Suncoast
Professional Fire Fighters and
Paramedics Local 2546 over a
new collective bargaining
agreement.
The current union contract
expired Sept. 30.
County officials began ne-
gotiating with union repre-
sentatives last, May and
entered into a tentative agree-
ment over all outstanding
issues except pay.
County officials have de-
scribed the pay offer as very
competitive for the region,
but Union representatives
dispute that claim.
"I don't understand why
the membership didn't have
the opportunity to vote on
this offer," Deputy County
Administrator Dave Bullock
said in a statement.
The county's qffer would
give pay increases for the
approximately 320 rank
and file employees with
enhanced specialty pay for
paramedics.
The county's offer would
also increase the first year of


the collective bargaining
agreement's total compensa-
tion package by more than $2
million from the amount fire-
fighters received in 2005.
The union is seeking an "
increase of more than $3 mil- '
lion for the first year. 4

Not an issue
Despite the impasse, the
parties may still continue
negotiation discussions or
participate in the impasse- ?
resolution process. The coun-
ty could also seek an inde-
pendent arbitrator to act as a
go-between in the negotia-
tion process.
Union officials said theyJ
will continue to participate in
the negotiations in the hope
of reaching a deal. They have
been trying to tie thle negotia-
tions to staffing and response ,
times.
County Administrator Jim
Ley told county commission- q
ers during a recent board
meeting the issue of staffing
and adding new fire stations
is important but should not
be part of the negotiation
process.

Indians work OT to bop Bruins


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice High boys varsity bas-
ketball team was successful again,
Tuesday night, stretching its winning
streak to five games with a 59-51
overtime victory over visiting Bay-
shore.
Steve Cavallaro's streaking Indians
are now 12-10 overall and peek their
heads over .500 in Class 5A District
12 play at 7-6. Bayshore fell to 10-10
and 7-6.


"They would get the tiebeaker over
us because they beat us twice, but
I'm not sure if seeding means any-
thing in this district," Bayshore coach
Chris Brady said.
"We're doing just enough to get it
done," Cavallaro said. "We played a
good three quarters and we played
well in overtime."
In the fourth quarter, Venice al-
lowed Bayshore to come back from a
10-point deficit to force the OT.
"It was a combination of them
making some shots and us not step-

ping up to stop them,"
Cavallaro said. "I saw some
things that we did that I
thought we had already
corrected. We'll be doing
reps (Wednesday)."
Venice went up 35-25
early in the fourth quarter
after guard George Stritz
scored five straight points.
He popped a three-pointer
then stole the ball and
drove for a layup.
Bayshore made a late
rush to force the extra
session. Guard Henry
Trarry and center Montres
Hopsin were big for the
Bruins, scoring eight and
four points down the
stretch. Demetrius Jenkins'
only two points of the
game on a follow of a
missed shot tied it at 47
with 1.9 seconds left.
Stritz tried a game-win-
ning heave, but it fell
short.
It appeared Bayshore
had all the momentum
heading into overtime,
but Venice played a nearly
flawless four minutes,
outscoring the Bruins 12-


4. Kalen Lyor
Two fast break baskets
put the Indians in charge. One was
Kyle Abney to Kalen Lyons. The next
was Stritz from Lyons. Forward Billy
Mehserle was also big in OT, grab-
bing a rebound and going 4-for-4
from the free throw line.
Venice was 8-for-8 from the charity
':. stripe in the extra session.
The Indians, as usual, had balanc-
ed scoring. Lyons had 16 points,

Indian booters see season end


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


After putting together a
nice run of .500-plus sea-
sons, the Venice High boys
varsity soccer was a bit down
this year.
The Indians saw their sea-
son end Monday night in the
district 'tournament quarter-
finals as North Port posted
a 6-1 decision over coach
Michael James' squad in a
match played at Port Char-
lotte High.
Venice finishes with a
won-loss record of 6-12.
James chalks the off-form
season to inexperience, espe-
cially up front.
"You can only rely on the
defense to bail you out for
so long," he said. "We had
a young squad. We were
missing goal scorers this
season."
James sees things getting
better. Most of the players
will be active in club ball
year-round. Assistant coach
Glenn Butters will be more
involved in off-season ball.
James looks forward to the
return of Francisco Juani,
who was in Uruguay -this
winter, and the emergence
of young strikers like Diego
Murielle.
"Our keeper, Jason Mad-

dams, has outstanding tim-
ing," James said. "He's only a
sophomore."
The last time Venice and
North Port met during the
regular season, the Bobcats
won 3-0.
"We didn't pound the goal
like we did tonight, but we
felt comfortable the way we
won," said North Port coach
Theresa Caracciolo.
Which gave the Bobcats
confidence heading into


of the air and uncorked a
liner off the right post and
into the net.
Matt Carboy got his first
goal in the first minute of the
second hW, dribbling down
the left side and dribbling
home a left-footer,
Rafeld made it 4-0 on a
breakaway in the 61st min-
ute.

North Port led 2-0 at the
half. In the 27th minute,
Dustin Rafeld sent a pass to
a clean-breaking John Para-
dise, who nudged the ball to
the right of Indian keeper
Maddams and into the net
to break the ice.
Paradise will not be able
to play in Wednesday's semi-
final because he received a
red card late in the second
half. Play became chippy
between the two rivals and
the referee bordered losing
control. Venice's Jimmy Sharp
suffered a possible concus-
sion on the play.
"We did a nice job compos-
ing ourselves," James pointed
out.
The Bobcats got another

Rose a thorn in this writer's mind


RAY SINIBALDI
SPORTS COLUMNIST


Help! I can't stand it! In
fact, I feel like Peter Finch in
the movie Network. I stag-
gered to my computer at 0
dark thirty a couple of Wed-
nesday mornings ago look-
ing to read about Bruce
Sutter, the newest MLB Hall
of Fame inductee.
And what to my wonder-
ing eyes, should appear on
my AOL screen? A story
about poor "shunned" Pete
Rose. Ugh! Why won't he go
away? I wanted to rip open
my back door and scream
into the darkness, "I'm mad
as hell and I'm not going to
take it anymore." Ooo, I feel
better already.
For the last time I'm going
to write about Pete Rose, that
is until the next time some
yo-yo talks about how he's
done his time and it's time to
reconcile and they should
forgive him and it's not as bad.
as steroids and yada yada
yada.
Well good people, the only
reason it's not as bad as
steroids is simply because,
it's worse. That's right, it's
worse! How can you say.that?
You may be asking yourself
at this very moment. Sini-
baldi's flipped, he doesn't
know what he's talking about.
Stay with me good people
and use that all too ignored
human ""thbight process
known simply as logic.
Remember Mr. Spock? Logic!


To begin. Pete Rose was a
tremendous baseball player.
He played the game the way
it's supposed to be played.
(How's that for a tired cliche?)
But it is an apt description
which applies in Rose's case.
His accomplishments are
legendary, his prowess un-
questioned, his hubris un-
matched.
For you Rose neophytes,
here's the condensed "skin-
ny." In 1989, he was perma-
nently banned from baseball
under an agreement he
signed with the late commis-
sioner of baseball, Mr. Bart
Giamatti, after it was found
that while managing the
Cincinnati Reds he gambled
on baseball (in fact he gam-
bled on everything) including
betting on his own team.
(Take a. breath.) He vehe-
mently denied that he bet on
baseball, especially his own
team.' That is until he pub-
lished his book in 2004.
Finally he admitted he had
bet on baseball including his
own team. "But I never bet on
them to lose" was his caveat.
Oh, OK Pete that makes it all
right. Yeeech, what a dope!
(Breath.) Oh, and by the way,
the poor contrite Mr. Rose
timed the release of all this
garbage two days before the
Hall of Fame announced the
inductions of Dennis Eck-
ersley and Paul Molitor. Great
timing Petey boy! He's not in
the Hall of Fame because
their bylaws state that they
cannot enshrine anyone
who is on baseball banned
list and that happens to be
where Pete has found him-
self since 1989. Whew, there
you go. Today, Pete works in
Vegas getting $1 million
a year signing memorabilia
in the lobby. When asked if
he still gambles he said, "No,
I don't do no gambling on
teams, people will see you,
besides I don't like it." Sounds
pretty ; contrite trme.
N'ow, why is it worse than
steroids you want to know?


Here's why. When an individ-
ual uses steroids, he is gain-
ing a competitive edge by
virtue of his gained strength.
However, he still must exe-
cute. He still must swing the
bat, make contact, hit, catch,
throw the ball and run the
bases. I'm not condoning nor
advocating their use, I'm sim-
ply stating a fact. Great
ballplayers will not be made
simply by taking steroids. If
you don't believe me, review
the list of players suspended
last year for steroid use and
with very few exceptions
you'll say, in the immortal
words of Butch Cassidy,
"Who are those guys?"
Gambling, on the other
hand, places the entire in-
tegrity of the game at stake
and here's how.
Stay with this Rose hypo-
thetical scenario. It's mid
September and Petey Boys
Reds are playing the Phillies.
Neither team is in the race
and Petey owes "Billy Bookie,"
let's say $200,000. Well, Petey
Boy doesn't have the 200K
and he's a little nervous and'
pacing before the game when
he gets a call from Billy who
tells him he'll see him after
the game to pick up the
dough. That is Billy entreats
unless we come up with an
alternate plan. Sure says Pete,
feeling the noose loosening
around his neck. Here's the
deal, Billy says, you know
that kid you called up from "A"
ball last week? You know,
Jimmy Ineverstayintheshow.
Make sure he pitches six
innings today and I'll take
care of the rest. Petey's off
the hook, Billy is happy,
Jimmy will get shelled and
after the game when the
question comes, how come
you stayed with Jimmy so
long, Petey says, "We wanted
to take the opportunity to
see what the kid was made
of."
.Pete Rose was a delight to
watch "on the baseball field.
He was the living example of

It is said that Sunday
morning is the most segregat-
ed time in America, but in
Venice on Sunday afternoon,
Jan. 15, it was a beautifully in-
tegrated time for almost 300
people who came to eat, learn
about the faiths of their
neighbors, watch or perform
inspiring presentations and
generally get to know each
other.
They were all part of the
Taste of Faith, a fundraising
event for the Faith in Action
group of the Senior Friend-
ship Center. Sponsored by the
Venice Interfaith Communityr
O Association, the event wn.\a
held at the Venice United
Church of Christ.
Tables laden with food


provided the taste of foods of
many traditions. Presenters
included representatives of at
least 10 faiths or congrega-
tions, including Christian,
Jewish, Muslim and Baha'i.
A mingling of waters cere-
mony by Rev. Lori Rivera of
the SunCoast Cathedral MCC
and a breaking-of-bread cere-
mony by Rabbi Ann White of
the Jewish Community Cen-
ter of Venice demonstrated
the unity and fellowship of
the faiths that all worship the
same God.
The rest of the program
included the Johnson Chapel

Vice Reg*ional medical Ceter Recognized

for Excelence in General Surgery


very year, millions of people undergo some form of general
surgery, from appendectomies to gall bladder removal. But'
i even "routine" surgery carries risks, so it's important to evalu-
ate the hospital you're considering for your procedure carefully, before
the operation takes place. HealthGrades', the nation's leading inde-
pendent healthcare ratings company, does exactly dhat each year-andd
recently, determined that Venice Regional Medical Center (VRMC)
ranks among the top 10 percent of hospitals nationwide for clinical
excellence in general surgery.
In fact, VRMC received HealthGrades' 2006 General Surgery Excel-
lence Award', which was based on an independent evaluation of data
from more than 37 million Medicare patients discharged at more than
5,000 hospitals around the country. To receive the award, hospitals had
to rank in the lowest 10 percent for risk-adjusted mortality and compli-
cation rates related to three of the most common general surgery proce-
dures. The data is risk-adjusted-based on factors like the average age
of patients-to ensure that hospitals serving different populations are on
equal footing.
VRMC also received five-star ratings in two specific surgical proce-
dures: bowel obstruction and appendectomy. The rating is bestowed on
hospitals with below-average mortality and complication rates for particu-
lar procedures. Those with rates that are "as expected" receive three stars.
"We have highly experienced surgeons on staff, state-of-the-art
surgery suites, and rigid safety procedures in place," said VRMC's CEO,
Melody Trimble. "Clearly, this has resulted in a surgery program with
excellent outcomes and a focus on patient safety. We salute the surgeons
and employees who have helped make VRMC one of the top surgery
programs in the region and the country."
HealthGrades Vice President of Medical Affairs Samantha Collier
emphasized, "The data analyzed is objective, based on information that
hospitals themselves report to the federal government under the Medi-
care program, so there is no way to reach the top 10 percent other than
having the lowest mortality and complication rates in the country."
For the 2006 HealthGrades ratings, data from the years 2002
through 2004 was utilized-the most current
information available. The data is
licensed from the federal gov- al I
ernment's Centers for Medicare IN
and Medicaid Services (CMS) >
and other private and public
sources. H .- A t T T A D A '

THS. FEBRUARY,.
GET HLEAR r HEALTHe


While heart-healthy habits
should be practiced all year long,
February-recognized as National
Heart Month-is the perfect time
to assess your personal health and
make changes that can help protect
you against heart disease, the num-
ber one cause of death in the U.S.
Venice Regional Heart Center
emphasizes that while it is far too
prevalent, heart disease is also one
of the most preventable illnesses.
People of all ages can slow or elimi-
nate the presence of risk factors,
greatly reducing the possibility that
a heart problem will develop.
There are six major independent
risk factors for heart disease that can
be controlled through diet or life-
style changes: smoking, high cho-
lesterol, high blood pressure, physi-
cal inactivity, obesity, and diabetes.
Smoking cessation is vital. Eating a
well-balanced diet low in cholesterol
and saturated fats will help keep
blood pressure and cholesterol lev-
els down, while combining healthy
eating with regular exercise will help
control weight and diabetes. It is
also important to see a doctor regu-
larly, so heart disease risk factors can
be detected and addressed as soon as
they occur.
The elimination of even one risk
factor, like smoking or obesity, can add
years--even decades-to your life.
For age-appropriate diet and
exercise guidelines, as well as addi-
tional information on heart disease
and stroke, visit the AHA website,
ww-w.americanheart.org.

The Collings Foundation
is bringing two of its most
important bomber aircraft
back to Venice next month.
Thursday, Feb. 2 through Sun-
day, Feb. 5, the Wings of Free-
dom planes will be at the
Venice Municipal Airport, at
the Triple Diamond Jet Cen-
ter.
The planes are no longer
part of the military, but
instead used by the Collings
Foundation for its 130-day
Wings of Freedom tour that
brings the Boeing B-17 Flying
Fortress heavy bomber ,and
the North American B-25
Mitchell medium bomber for
display at local airports and
to allow citizens to experi-
ence World War II history up
close and personal, maybe
even to fly aboard like a
crewmember during the war.
If we can work out the
logistics, the plan is for me to
be aboard one of the historic
planes when it flies to Venice
from Ft. Myers on Feb. 2.
While in Venice, the air-
craft are available for tours
and up-close inspection for a
donation of $7. Experience a
30-minute flight aboard the
B-17 for a $425 tax-deductible
contribution per person. To.
fly aboard the B-25 Mitchell,
the cost is a tax-deductible
donation of $400 per person
for a seat in the front of the
airplane or a $325 tax-de-
ductible donation per person
for a seat in the rear. For flight
reservations aboard either
plane, call (800) 568-8924.
For general information,
hours and directions, call
Charlie Strumpf at 228-3232.

A while back I put some-

the Salmen High School li-
brary in Slidell, La., which
was destroyed by Hurricane
Katrina last summer. The
library needs new books and
cash to buy books and other
supplies. Venice resident Gail
Martin read the column and,
typical of the kind of people
who make Venice so wonder-
ful, she has been actively
working to help that library,
much as her own father help-

the Venice Public Library
from its modest beginning
by members of the Venice-
Nokomis Woman's Club.
Her most recent call to me
was to say that there is a box
in the Friends of the Venice
Library Bookstore into which
one can donate young adult
books in like-new condition
for that library. If you do not
have books to donate, you
can buy books from the
Friends for as little as 25 cents
per book and place them in
the box, thus helping both
libraries. Martin said Pamela

that they have lived in three

Venice, after moving here
from Colorado. First they
lived in St. George and then at
Plantation Woods, both in the
Plantation. It seems that as
soon as she finishes painting,

they go to another home.
Not able to find another

six on the tour but each of

Venice Christian students reach


out to help those in need


STAFF REPORT ..


Mrs. Koch's kindergarten
students at Venice Christian
School were recently able to
put into practice some of the
spiritual lessons being taught
on a daily basis in their class.
A Sarasota County deputy
officer had visited the class on
several occasions to teach
about safety and to give the
class a bird's-eye view of his
patrolman's motorcycle.
When the officer learned
that he had cancer, Mrs.
Koch, her students and a
school family decided to
reach out and help.
Their first action was com-
miting to pray for him on a
daily basis. The students were
able to hear personal testimo-
ny of how God was working
mightily in his life providing
healing and comfort.
A family business offered
to donate $1 for every boolk
the students read over a two-
weekperiod.
By the end of the two
weeks, the read-a-thon yield-


ed more than $766 as a result
of the class' efforts. Additional
donations brought the total
to more than $1,200.
The very practical side of
faith was demonstrated in a
tangible way. Students mar-
veled as they witnessed God's
healing touch in the life of
someone they cared about.
The officer has visited the
class on numerous occasions
since his surgery and has
shared how grateful he and
his family have been for all
the prayers and support the
children have provided.
A praise and worship ser-
vice was held at the school to
thank God for this and the
many other ways he had
demonstrated his gracious-
'ness.
Middle school students
were able to rally around
Austin Dolby as he faced mul-
tiple brain surgeries. Compli-
cations from the childhood
disease, Spina Bifida, had
resulted in a gradual loss of
motor control, including am-
bulation.,


A series of surgeries was
finally agreed on to help
reverse his deteriorating con-
dition. VCS students adopted
this very courageous individ-
ual through prayer support
and financial gifts.
Their prayers were an-
swered, as he was eventually
able to accompany them on a
field trip to the movies to see
"The Chronicles of Narnia."
They too continue to see
God's hand in their midst as
he is making great strides in
walking again.
The focus for this semester
will be an intergenerational
ministry to retirement cen-
ters and nursing homes.
Students will be learning
about the aging process and
losses associated with grow-
ing old. One goal of the pro-
gram will be to overcome the
stereotypes commonly linked
with the elderly. Field trips to
local facilities will seek to fos-
ter relationships with resi-
dents, teaching students the
joy of giving back to these
wonderful folks.

STAFF REPORT

The teen center, as the
members refer to it, has com-
pleted its first year of exis-
tence. More than 500 differ-
ent young adults have come
through the doors to attend
dances and other special
events in the past year.
The center welcomed 164
members who use its game
room and have become
involved in the glass fusion,
hemp jewelry and other
classes offered at the teen
center.
The current circus arts
instruction on Wednesday
and Thursday is well attended
as well.
The center is for all youth
living in Laurel, Osprey,
Venice, Englewood and North
Port. The mission of the
SCYAC is to provide a place
where young adults can come
to get off the streets, get
involved in something con-
structive and just meet their


friends at a safe place with
adult supervision.
"It has not always been
easy to get teens from differ-
ent groups to accept one
another," said Ed Eagen,
SCYAC executive director.
"We have to ask some indi-
viduals to leave, but there are
a lot of kids who are apprecia-
tive and come forward to say
that without this place, they
would have nothing and
nowhere to go but on the
streets.
"It takes a while for the
members to understand this
is their place.
"When something is des-
troyed or stolen, it was there
for them to use and it is no
longer there. It was taken
from them, not from the staff
or the center. That is when
some begin to feel owner-
ship," he said.
The center has a number
of teens who have become
involved. The snack cafe is
largely run by members who


volunteer their time. Mem-
bers organized a committee
* to put on the Halloween party
and another member com-
mittee planned, built and ran
a haunted house. Six teens are
on the board and several reli-
giously attend the monthly
meetings.
The center was closed the
first two weeks of January for
cleaning, repairs and prepa-
ration for 2006.
The current membership
fee of $10 is the same for 2006.
All young adults 13-19 are
invited to join. Drugs and
alcohol are not tolerated at
the center.
SCYAC is looking for teens
who care and want to get
involved and join the Teen
Board who will help organize
events and programs and

Clear the streets! It's snowplow hockey time


DAVE BARRY
RIMO COLUMNIST


This classic Dave Barry
column was originally pub-
lished an. 8, 1995.

The problem with winter
sports is that follow me
closely here they generally
take place in winter. Winter is
both cold AND slippery,
which means that if you
engage in a typical winter
sport, such as skiing, you
could easily wind up freezing
in some godforsaken snow-
bank, unable to move be-
cause one or more of your
knees have been converted
into ligament gumbo.
FACT: Last year, 17 percent
of all recreational skiers were
eaten by wolves. This is why


Mfi I, -.


leading health experts rec-
ommend that you spend the
entire winter in a heated, TV-
equipped environment eat-
ing Cheez-Its directly from
the box. But for those of you
who insist on leading an
active lifestyle all year, I'm
pleased to report that there
is a new winter sport on the
scene a winter sport that
lets you stay warm, yet at the
same time enables you to
potentially get arrested.
I found out about this
sport from Judy Schneck, an
alert reader who lives in a
Wisconsin city called "Oco-
nomowoc" '(a Native Amer-
ican word meaning "Word
that even Native Americans
cannot pronounce"). Judy
wrote to me in response to a
column I'd written about a
sport called "car bowling," in
which guys try to hit junk
cars with bowling balls-
dropped from airplanes. She
said this reminded her of a
sport invented by her hus-
band, Mark, and a buddy of
his named Bob Thelen.
It seems that some winters
ago, Mark and Bob were sit-
ting around a gas station
with not much to do. I cer-


tainly do not wish to make
gender-based generaliza-
tions, but if Mark and Bob
had been women, they prob-
ably would have passed the
time in some non-productive
manner, such as nurturing
their friendship, exploring
their innermost feelings, or
helping each other gain sig-
nificant insights into the,
important relationships in
their lives. But fortunately
for humanity in general,
Mark and Bob are not wom-
en. Mark and Bob are guys,
and what they did is invent
snowplow hockey.
According to Mark, three
factors led to this invention:
1. Mark and Bob each had
a vehicle equipped with a
snowplow.
2. Both sides of the street
were lined by steep, hard
snowbanks.
3. Mark's vehicle also con-
tained (no motorist should
ever be without one) a bowl-
ing ball.,
As Mark recalls the mo-
ment, he and Bob realized
that if they shoved the bowl-
ing ball with a snowplow, it
would be prevented by the
snowbanks from leaving the


street; it would just bounce
off and keep going.
* "We realized that it would
basically roll forever," Mark
says.
Which is why you need
the other snowplow to play
defense. And that's how,
snowplow hockey works. You
have your two opposing
snowplows.facing each other.
The player on offense drives
forward and gives the bowl-
ing ball a hearty shove with,
his plow; the player on de-
fense then tries to block the
ball. The trick on offense is to
angle the ball ("It's just like
pool," Mark says) so that it
caroms off a snowbank and
rockets past the defender
into the intersection behind
him, where it knocks over an
elderly woman.
No, seriously, Mark says
they play this sport only on
deserted streets, and nobody
has been injured so. far,
although there obviously is a
certain amount of hazard
involved in having guy-
operated snowplows lunging
toward each other in a com-
petitive manner.
"How close do you come
to hitting each other?" I


asked.
"Too close," replied Mark.
He said there are rules about
how far forward each snow-
plow is supposed to go, but
"we can't get anybody to
come out and referee."
Mark, who in real life is a
restaurant manager, says that
he and some other guys still
play snowplow hockey on a
semi-regular basis.
"Fortunately, the police
have never seen us," he said.
"They would probably take
our bowling ball away."
I don't know about you,
but I think this sounds like 'a
WAY more entertaining
brand of hockey than the
kind where you have a bunch
of stick-waving Canadians
skittering frantically around
trying to hit a semi-invisible'
puck roughly the size of a
breath mint. Just think, as a
sports fan, what it would
mean if we had a National
Snowplow Hockey League
with franchises in all major
U.S. cities! It would mean
hundreds of pedestrian
deaths. So we probably
should limit the franchises
to places that are the size of
Oconomowoc or (if this is


possible) smaller.
Nevertheless, this is clearly
a major "ground-floor" op-
portunity for the type of
wealthy stupid businessman
who likes to own sports
teams. Also you large corpo-
rations should be aware that
Mark Schneck told me that,
as one of the top three or
four snowplow-hockey play-
ers in the world, he is avail-
able for lucrative product
endorsements. For example,
you could have a commer-
cial wherein Mark snow-
plows into McDonald's for a
hearty meal, taking' down
most of the building in the
process.
My point is that there's
plenty of opportunity for
everyone who sincerely cares
about sports as a way to get
rich. But if you're interested,
you'd better act fast. Because
if this thing gets any more
popular, there will definitely
be a strike.

IN SHAPE


Five weeks until Sarasota Marathon takes place


r,^ f<'
'

.o--a



J.J. Andrews
BACK OF THE PACK

Sorry, Tampa. Another city
has won my marathon-run-
ning. heart, and this one's
right next door.
For nearly a year I have
planned on running the Hops
Marathon in Tampa, also
known as the Gasparilla
Distance Classic. Last year I
ran my best time for 26.2
miles in more than a decade,
.and hoped to set an overall
personal record this year.
That thinking has chang-
ed. I've decided to run the
inaugural Albritton Fruit
Sarasota Marathon on March


;Beach yoga returns
The Venice YMCA Beach
Yoga at Caspersen Beach has
returned. Pre-registration is
required at Venice YMCA, 701
Center Road. No money will
be taken at the beach.
Cost is $6 per class. Multi-
ple class passes are available.


6 instead of the Hops Mar-
athon, which is the weekend
before.
Call me a homer, but I've
gotta support races in my
own backyard. This is Sara-
sota's first marathon, despite
being one of the best places
to run in all the state.
Race weekend will consist
of two races, a marathon
and half-marathon (13.1
miles). The certified course
is a fiat and fast one with a
start and finish at the John
and Mable Ringling
Musetim.
Runners will head straight
out, turn around and come
back, passing locations like
the Bay Shore Neighborhood,
Jungle Garderis, St. Armand's
Circle, Mote Marine Labor,
atory, Lido Beach, Bayfront
Park and Marina, Selby
Gardens and Southside
Village.
Proceeds from the race
will benefit Sarasota Family
YMCA. Registration fees
vary:
Marathon $70 before
Feb. 1; and $80 after Feb. 1.


Classes will be held at Cas-
persen Beach, 8:45-9:45 a.m.
Parking is available by the
public restrooms. Class will
be held on the beach across
the street. Bring a Yoga mat,
towel and water.
Call 492-9622 for addition-
al information.


Half-marathon $50
before Feb. 1; and $60 after
Feb. 1.
To find out more about the
marathon, go to sarasotama-
rathon.com or e-mail race
organizer Lisette Riveron at
info@SarasotaMarathon.com
Going to run?
Race day is a little more
than five weeks away, so it's
a bit late in the game to sud-
denly decide to run your first
marathon.
That doesn't mean you
can't either which drew
fits of laughter from The
Fiancee, who ran her first 5K
road race in December, when
I shared this with her.
Once she stopped laugh-
ing, I explained that if you're
able to "comfortably" run 15-
17 miles during a training
run, then you should be able
to "finish" a marathon.
This information didn't
seem to help in my conversa-
tion with The Fiancee. She
was wearing the you're-a-
crazy-man expression she
gets every time I talk about

The Friends of Oscar


how much fun doing a
marathon is.
Despite all of this, I really
believe it's true based on a
combination of personal
experience, advice from fel-
low runners and training
plans posted on runner-
sworld.com.
But remember, I am not a
certified coach, and this is
only a suggested guide to find
your own answers. Older run-
ners and those with preexist-
ing medical conditions are
urged to consult with his or
her family doctor before
launching into any new work-
out routine.
And for the most part, this
is how I'm going to whip
myself into shape for the
Sarasota Marathon in only
five weeks.
Marathon plan
Before plopping down
your marathon registration
fee, make sure you answer yes
to these three questions:
Have you been running
for more than a year?
Can you run 13 miles


Scherer, race hosts, tried the
new policy last year and were
so pleased with results that
they will again waive all entry
fees for runners younger than
16, according to Laurel Schil-
ler, president of the Friends.
There is a $5 discount for
all registrations received or


without collapsing?
Do you average a mini-
mum of 25 miles a week?
If you answered yes to all
three (like me), then here's
my five-week training plan
adapted from runnersworld.
com:
Jan. 30-Feb. 5 Total of
30-32 miles, spread out over
three to four days. One of
those needs to be a long run
of 15-17 miles.
Feb. 6-12 -Total of 36-39
miles, spread out over four
days. Long run of 18-20 miles.
Feb. 13-19 Total of 30-
35 miles, spread out over four
days. Long run of 10-15.
Feb. 20-26 Total of 16-
20 miles, spread out over four
days. Long run of no more
than 5 miles.
Feb. 27-March 5 (race
day) This is your rest week,
going out for three easy jogs
of 3 miles.
The long run is the key to a
marathoner's training. The
body starts to seriously break-
down around the 18-mile
mark, so often called "the
wall" by experienced runners.


postmarked by Feb. 4. Race-
day registration begins at 7
a.m., and the race at 8 a.m. All
proceeds are used to restore
and maintain habitat for the
threatened Florida Scrub Jay
as well as other animals and
plants found within the Park,
Schiller says.


If your body cannot handle
the training run of 18-20
miles two weeks from now,
then attempting the mara-
thon could be a big mistake.
You could downgrade to
Sarasota's half-marathon,
which is a much more realis-
tic goal with only five weeks
to go. Long runs of 10 miles
and an average of 30-35.
miles a week should be
enough to get you across
the finish line.
Five weeks isn't much
time, so don't be afraid to
hold off one more year to
do your first half-marathon
or marathon.
Judging from the initial
turnout an estimated 800
entries so far it looks as if
the Sarasota Marathon and
Half-Marathon could be-
come an annual event.

Q 1 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:
A K95 Y 8 0 Kj9652 T. AQ7
The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
14. Pass 10 Pass
I0 Pass ?
What do you bid now?
A An awkward hand. A jump of
some kind would describe its
strength, but in what strain? Two no
trump might work out well, but
could lead to missing a minor-suit
slam; three clubs might result in a
slam with a shortage of trumps; and
three diamonds is invitational, not
forcing. Best is to bid one spade.
Since a new suit by responder is
forcing, partner's nextbid might give
you better indication of how to pro-
ceed.
Q 2 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
4 AK 6 ? A Q 7 2 OAQ7 1 J 8 3
The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
1 Pass 2T. Pass
20 Pass ?
What do you bid now?
A This is the time for a fourth-suit
bid. Two spades now would say
nothing about the spade suit but
Would be game forcing regardless of
the strength of the initial response.
Again, you want to learn as much as
possible about partner's hand.
Q 3 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
A J9862 ( AK73 0< Void 4 AK93
The bidding has proceeded:
WEST NORTH EAST SOUTH
10 Pass 1 V ?
What action do you take?
A While you would rather have a
better spade suit and perhaps weaker
hearts, you still have possibly the
best hand at the table, and therefore
you must act. The only course open
to you is to start with a takeout dou-
ble.
Q 4 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
4102 J10742 0 A 10 KQ95


The bidding has proceeded:
WEST NORTH EAST
3V 34 Dbl
What action do you take?


SOUTH
?


A It looks as if this deck has 50
points, but you must trust partner.
Redouble. You have enough strength
to expect to make the contract and
you can certainly take care of a
runout by the opponents. Tell partner
of the good news.
Q 5 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
4 AKQ98 V) AJ763 0 Q 4 Q9


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
14 Pass 24?
29 Pass 34T
What do you bid now?


EAST
Pass
Pass


A Partner's bidding shows a sub-
minimum two-over-one response
with a good, long club suit and little
or nothing outside. Your queen of
clubs has become gold. Don't waste
time and space by rebidding hearts to
show a five-card suit. Raise to four
clubs.
Q 6 East-West vulnerable, as South
you hold:
A A K10762 O J,8532 *4A97
The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
30 Dbl ?
What do you bid now?
A There is a strong temptation to
make some high-level preemptive
bid, but that would be premature.
Should the opponents reach some
high-level spade contract with West
declaring, it might be crucial to get a
heart lead. Make a lead-directing bid
of three hearts now, and save your
preempt for later.

A name dropper? Me?


BROTHER CRAIG
V)'


Mind you me, I never
expected such a reaction as I
received from my last col-
umn. (Please see your refrig-
erator, where you put it up
after cutting it out and having
it laminated.)
I received several letters
stating (with proof and foot-
notes) that I only wrote
about my close personal
friendship with Merv Griffin
because I'm a name drop-
per. The fact that all of these
letters were from my rela-
tives is not the point.
I am not a name dropper. I
only mention the celebrities
(such as Charles Matthau,
Walter Matthau's son) I have
met when it is absolutely
appropriate to the conversa-
tion (or writing).
I am very strict about this.
I never mention that Acad-
emy Award-winner Maureen
Stapleton once called me on
the phone unless someone
mentions staples. (True, she
is playwright Neil Simon's
favorite actress and he did
write me a four-page letter
once.)
And I never mention the
two letters I've received from
Shirley Jones unless someone
refers to "keeping up with
the Joneses." Which is only
natural. Just as it is only
when someone mentions
the color white that I tell
about the lovely letter I
received from Betty White.
Okay, two letters.
My regular readers know
that I've received several let-
ters from Phyllis Diller and
will surely understand that
she is hard to'work into a
conversation unless one is
discussing having one's hair


Celebrating her Native



American heritage by sharing


permed by electricity. Far be
it from me to mention I
have several letters from her
- or did I mention that
already?
As for Bob Newhart. I never
mention his kind letter to me
unless someone uses the
word "new." That's fair.
I can assure you I do not
mention (yes, it really did
happen) that once Dom
Delouise was told I was
sleeping and to call back the
next day! (Which he graci-
ously did.)
It is only when someone
mentions that they drive a
Ford that I refer to the long
(one-word) conversation that
I had with Harrison Ford at
the Hollywood Film Festival
- which, by the way, was in
Hollywood, in case you didn't
get that from the title.
Kaye Ballard's, Jonathan
Winters' and Soupy Sales'
postcards to me I never ever
refer to, even now. Nor Liv
Ullman's.
I once saw Miss Ulman in
Rome at the Spanish Steps.
Okay, the person I was with
had to point her out to me.
True, if someone does
mention e-mail I think it
only my duty to bring up the
fact that Patricia Neal and I
have e-mailed several times.
And it would be so rude if
someone referred to a letter
he or she had received and
I didn't mention the two
faxes I 'have received from
Steve Allen, even though it
has nothing to do with let-
ters.
And who could call it name
dropping when the legen-
dary actress Julie Harris and
I have corresponded several
times? It is merely a state-
ment of fact.
But still there are those
who will accuse me of name
dropping. What can I do?
True, I have received several
letters from a man named
Dave Barry, but I have no
idea who he is.

tacted through his communi-
ty's Web site at www.monkso-
fadoration.org.


BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR

Vivian Durant's children
say she has wanderlust be-
cause she likes to keep mov-
ing, exploring, seeking ad-
venture. Perhaps some of
the 80-year-old's curious
nature stems from her Native
American heritage.
"My mother was a mem-
ber of the Blackfeet tribe,"
said Durant. "Her people
came from the Blackfeet
reservation in Montana. But
my great-grandmother was
captured at the age of 8 by a
white family and brought
back east."
When her great-grand-
mother was 13, she was re-
captured, by some Mohawk
Indians.
By then, the girl had for-
gotten almost all of her na-
tive language, but she was
raised as a Mohawk and
eventually married a Mo-
hawk man.
As a girl, Vivian knew of
her mother's Native Amer-
ican blood. She, her brother
and sister were repeatedly
told that they were lucky to
be able to attend school,
because as part Indian they
were considered "savages."
"Children can sometimes
be very cruel," Durant said.
"We were sometimes picked
on as children because of
our native heritage. Often, the
Indian children in schools
were punished if they tried
to use their native language."
But her mother also in-
stilled a sense of wonder and
adventure. Vivian, her brother
and sister all learned to ride
a horse beginning at age 3.
Sage advice
Today, Durant celebrates
her native heritage every day.
Her home is decorated with
Native American objects,
many of which she made


herself. Durant pointed out a
bow-and-arrow set that she
crafted.
"I even napped the flint
for the arrowheads in upstate
NewYork," she said.
She also made a spear,
flute, drum and a medicine
club. Even the fabrics of her
curtains and bedspread are

A descendent of Mohawk and Blackfeet Indians, Vivian Durant, 80, surrounds herself with
Native American memorabilia and personally handmade artifacts to remember her heritage.
A natural-born storyteller, Durant said she can never tell the same story twice because they
all come from the heart.










SHARING from Page9B


Native American prints, and
a cloth imprinted with a
Navajo kokopelli dancer dec-
orates a living-room chair.
Above her bed is a dream-
catcher she made. On a wall
she points out the medicine
wheel she also crafted.
"Each direction on the
wheel has a symbolic mean-
ing," she indicates. "There is
also a peace pipe and a med-
icine bag worked into the
design. The roundness of the
wheel represents that we are
all one people in this world.
We are a very religious peo-
ple. We believe in the Great
Spirit whether you call
him God or Yahweh or Allah,
we all have our own view of
him."
Durant wears around her
neck a leather medicine bag
that she made and decorated
herself. It holds some per-
sonal mementos and items
of special significance whose
identity she usually chooses
to keep secret.


Durant plans to attend the
annual powwow scheduled
for Oscar Scherer State Park
Jan. 27-29.
"It will be a chance for
me to connect with other
Native Americans," Durant
said. "I used to dance at all
the powwows. Now it's hard
for me to dance, but I still
enjoy going just the same."
It's at the powwows that
she gets the sage plants she
burns as incense. If you visit
her home, she may bless
you by burning sage and
enveloping you in its aro-
matic smoke.
Telling tales
Vivian grew up in the
Northeast and raised her
children there. She was a
registered nurse at a Veterans
Administration hospital for
many years, until an acci-
dent left her with debilitat-
ing injuries.
She thought she would
never walk again, but after

Vivian Durant has made her own Native American artifacts,
such as a medicine stick, dream catcher, a medicine wheel and
bow and arrow set and hangs them in her house with pride.
"All we did was fight for what was ours. We had spears, they
had guns. We weren't savages, we still aren't," she said.


attending a healing service
she regained some of her
range of motion. Working,
though, was out of the ques-
tion, so she ended up mov-


ing to North Port because
one of her daughters lived
here. Now three of her daugh-
ters are in the area.
A Navajo medicine man


she saw in Connecticut gave
Vivian her Indian name:
Water Walker.
"It was funny he indicated
that name, because as a
child I was always splashing
around in puddles," Durant
said.
Several years ago, Vivian
visited the Blackfeet reser-
vation in Montana. She
learned more about the
spiritual beliefs of her ances-
tors and rode horseback.
After years of having such
difficulty walking, she had
the exhilaration of riding
once again.
Durant has a natural gift as
a storyteller, and she used to
go around to some local
schools to tell tales to the
youngsters.
"The little ones especially,
first- or second-grade, really
enjoy the stories I tell," she
said. "Some still think we all
.live in tepees."
Durant said that her totem
the "animal spirit" whose


qualities she shares and who
protects her is the wolf.
Throughout her home she
has pictures and figurines of
the timber wolf.
One day last winter, she
looked into her back yard
and saw a tiny kitten hudi
died under a tree. The little
gray ball of fur was only a
few weeks old, and some
thing must have happened
to his mother.
Durant took the kitten to
an animal shelter. The shots;
spaying, all of it added up td
a considerable expense. But
Vivan knew it was worth it. j
As the kitten grew, shd
could see he had a very
regal, almost wolflike face
and striking golden eyes. She
named him Silver Wolf aftei
her totem. Silver now folly
lows Durant around and
welcomes guests to he'
home.

admission, Florida residents
can revisit their favorite
theme park again and again
through all of 2006. No black-
out dates and no additional
charge, this special offer is
the hottest ticket in town.
The Fun Card is available at
the parks' front gates, at AAA
offices and online at Sea-
World.com and BuschGard-
ens.com.
For guests who are visit-
ing Florida in 2006, both
parks are introducing re-
spective 'Anytime" offers for
vacationers to "come and go"
as they please during their
stay with the purchase of any
ticket. Designed to address
the time crunch guests expe-
rience during a Florida vaca-
tion, "SeaWorld Anytime" and
"Busch Gardens Anytime" are
the best way to enjoy a vaca-
tion without a rigid schedule
and time constraints.
For either park, guests sim-
ply exchange any one-day
admission for a personalized
pass that allows them unlim-
ited visits during their vaca-
tion to that same park (up to
six additional days).
With each of these new
ways to get the most out of


SeaWorld arid Busch Gar-
dens, guests will liave the
opportunity to experience all
of the adventure the parks
have in store for 2006.
Coming to SeaWorld Or-
lando in 2006, "Believe" is the
most ambitious killer whale
show in the company's histo-
ry, and marks the greatest
investment the company
has ever made in a show.
"Believe" showcases majestic
killer whales with awe-in-
spiring choreography, an
elaborate 3-story set, orig-
inal musical score and four
panoramic LED screens. A
first for SeaWorld, the intense
choreography of the new
show creates a breathtaking
"killer whale ballet" of grace
and agility, as every move-
ment of the powerful whales
- each weighing 6,000 to
10,000 pounds is matched
to the corresponding beat of
a stirring, original musical
score.
As America's only dive
coaster, Sheikra has already
become a legend since open-
ing in May. It has cemented
Busch Garden's reputation as
Florida's coaster king with a
record-breaking 200-foot, 90-


degree vertical drop, a sec-
ond, 138-foot dive into an
underground tunnel, and a
water feature finale. No mat-
ter what time of year, Busch
Gardens guests can come
back again and again for a
full calendar of special events,
including the Real Music
Concert Series and return
engagement of Irish Thun-
der (January-March), Sum-
mer Nights and Florida's
top-rated haunted attraction,
Howl-O-Scream.
The single-day admission
price to SeaWorld Orlando is
$61.95 for adults and $49.95
for children. The single-day
admission price to Busch
Gardens Tampa Bay is $57.95
for adults and $47.95 for chil-
dren.

"Man ofLa Mancha" opens
at The Players Theatre, 838
North Tamiami Trail,
Sarasota, Thursday, Feb. 23,
and runs through March 12.
The show that introduced
the world to the hit song,
"The Impossible Dream" was
the smash of the 1965
Broadway season. The story
begins in a Spanish prison
where Miquel de Cervantes


awaits his trial before the
Spanish Inquisition. Finding
himself at the mercy of his
fellow inmates and forced to
appear before "the governor,"
Cervantes acts out his in-
complete novel "Don Quix-
ote." All are deeply moved by
his tale and the story con-
cludes with the inspiring
"Impossible Dream."
Tickets are $21 for adults
and $11 for students. There
are matinees at 2 p.m. Feb. 26,
March 4, 5 and 12. For tick-
ets, call the box office daily
between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

STAFF REPORT

Saturday, Feb. 18, the
Englewood Art Center will be
transformed into a down-
town New Orleans street
scene complete with colorful
decorations and costumes,
traditional cajun cuisine and
a six-man blues band.. Ac-
cording to chair Carroll
Swayze, this year's "Evening
with the Arts" fundraiser is
sure to be a hit, especially
with the new raffle item that
has just been donated for
the event. "I can't tell you
how excited I am with the
addition of the When Sharks
Fly pig for our raffle," Swayze
said, "I would love to have it
for my own backwoods patio
area."
The brightly painted fiber-
glass pig was painted by artist
Margi Roberts for Sharky's on
the Pier two years ago when
the Venice Art Center hosted
their big fundraiser Pigs In
Paradise. Swayze herself also
painted a pig that year, nam-
ed Ms. Hog Snapper, which
was auctioned off this past
spring at the Venice Yacht
Club. "We are very lucky to
have this donation," Swayze
said. "It typifies the fun color-
ful atmosphere that we are
trying to recreate for the event
and will be a great center-
piece for someone to take
home."

With all the remodeling that
went on in these houses, this

Dallam, assistant chair Pat
Magennis and the tour com-
mittee also will have ex-
pended a lot of work both in
preparing for the tour and in
manning homes on tour days.
Ticket books are $20 each,
with the proceeds going to the
Plantation Community
Foundation, which makes
annual grants to many worth
organizations each year.
Lunch may be purchased at
the Plantation Clubhouse for

of the club.
Tickets can be purchased

FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL COLUMNIST

VLT shows off its

"Underpants"

"What a cute show."
"I liked it."
"Wasn't it great to have a
good laugh?"
The crowd at the opening
night reception for "Under-
pants" talked about the show
and mingled with its stars.
Dan Greene, Tarah Hart,
Candace Artim, Neil
Kasanofsky, Steve Horowitz,
Fred Pazona, Ric Curcio and
director Joe Simmons wel-
comed the comments.
The comedy provided the
almost sold out opening night
audience a fun light hearted
evening of theatre. It runs
through Jan 29. Call 488-1115
for tickets.
While at the theatre visit the
Mitzi Voelker Gallery to see
paintings on display featuring
father and daughter interna-
tional artists Kurt and Linda
Larisch.
"Singing in the Rain" opens
at the VLT on Valentine's Day.
All that glitters is gold
Liz Maggio welcomed
sponsors of the South County
YMCA gala to her store, Re-
flections In Gold, to preview
some of the luscious jewelry
she plans to bring to the gala
for the auction.
Chairmen for the event,
Michelle Hazeltine and
Christine Pfahler set up the
Harley Davidson XL883
Sportster at the entrance. The
group is selling raffle tickets
for the bike at the YMCA, giv-
ing wanna be bikers a chance
to dream.
The south county YMCA
Black Tie Gala takes place Feb
11. For ticket information call
207-9622. There are a few tick-
ets left.
Not late for an
important date
The Mad Hatter, also
known as Eric Watters, came
to the Venice Yacht Club for a
tea party thanks to the Arts
and Culture Alliance. Pres-
ident Lynn Mosley, Pete
Peters, Bonnie Kaiser; Tracey
Viviano and Erika Williams
made sure everyone who
looked through the looking
glass saw plenty of delicious
sweets and had enough tea to
make them happy.
Attitudes in Dance brought
the rabbit, Alice 'and several
other characters' to help ani-
mate the party. Tweedle Dee
and Tweddle Dum, known in
town as Judith .mLanen and
Brenda Wright, also made an
appearance.
Bravo to everyone involved.
The Arts and Culture Al-
liance promotes arts and art
education in the area.
For information about the
group call 408-7349. Their arts
showcase takes place April 15
at and around the Venice Little
Theatre.
Treasure hunt
Unity Church on E. Venice
Ave. and Jackson Road holds a
garage and bake sale Jan 28, 8
a.m.-1 p.m. I know first-hand
the baked goods members of
this church produce are awe-
some.
One of our best
The special person of this
week is Lynn Mosely. This
kind woman entertains the-
atre goers at the Venice Little
Theatre as one of Eric Watters'
dancers. She is president of
the Arts and Culture Alliance
and is on the committee for
the YMCA Black Tie Gala.
Lynn attends many social
events in town and strives to
make sure they are successful.

Liz Van Buren and Joe Russo cut up a little while performing
with the Venice Concert Band. These talented musicians and
the rest of the Venice Concert Band perform on Jan 30 at the
Venice Community Center at 7 p.m. Some tickets are available
the afternoon of the concert at the center.


SUN PHOTOS EY FRAN VALENCIC
Linda and Kurt Larisch are the featured artists in the Mitzi Voelker Gallery at the Venice Little
Theatre. Kurt has been called the "master of the geometric form." Linda has illustrated and
hand lettered an organic gardening book and children's books. She is a quilter and a painter
whose work has been exhibited throughout New England and Florida as well as Mexico.


Dan Greene and Tarah Hart perform as Theo and Louise in
"Underpants" playing at VLT through Jan 29.


When Steve Horowitz saw
"Underpants" a few years ago
he knew he wanted to play
Cohen. His performance at
the Venice Little Theatre
proves he was meant for the
role.


Fred Pazona, Candace Artim and Neil Kasanofsky give the
audience plenty to laugh about as Klinglehoff, Gertrude and
Versati in "Underpants" playing at the Venice Little Theatre.


Judges determined Robin Hidalgo deserved a prize for having
the best theme for a hat at the Mad Hatter's Tea Party.


Joe Simmons, director of "Underpants" enjoys accolades at the
opening night reception.


Brooke and Paige Loehrig and Emily Edbrooke all won prizes for their lovely hats at the Mad
Hatter's Tea Party sponsored by the Arts and Culture Alliance at the Venice Yacht Club.


Michelle Hazeltine would like to win the Harley Davidson XL 883 Sportster being raffled at the
YMCA Annual Black Tie event on Feb. 11. Raffle tickets for the bike are $50 and are now avail-
able at the South County YMCA. The bike will be raffled the night of the gala. Michelle is cochair
of the event.


Bonnie Kaiser, Lynn Mosley and Erica Williams help members
and friends of the Arts and Culture Alliance celebrate unbirth-
days at the Mad Hatter's Tea Party at the Venice Yacht Club.
