Shelters: VCC in, VES out


Paying tribute


Venice Community Center appears to meet
structural requirements for a hurricane shelter,
while the new school doesn't, to the surprise of


some council members.

BYJJ.'ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

City Engineer Nancy
Woodley is on the verge of
finding out what she knew all
along: the Venice Community
Center was built to be a hurri-
cane shelter, and it most like-
ly will be used as one.
"That's what I've said all
along," Woodley said. "I
thought we'd be good up to a
(Category) 3, and then we
couldn't after that."
Venice Elementary School,
however, most likely cannot
be used as a hurricane shelter
- much to the surprise of
local government officials.
The community center
renovation and expansion


project came under criticism
after the cost funded by
voter-approved bond referen-
dum money ballooned to
$4.8 million. Of that, about
$1.8 million came from Ven-
ice bond money.
Late last year there was
also an issue about whether
during the campaign to get
voters to approve the bond
issue the center was touted as
a place island residents could
evacuate to before a storm, or
only as a post-storm shelter.
The Red Cross is nearly fin-
ished with its initial survey of
both buildings to determine if
either one could be used as a
hurricane evacuation shelter.
As long as all engineering
reports are independently


certified, the community cen-
ter has crossed the finish line
as advertised and could pro-
vide safety for up to 655 peo-
ple up through a Category 3
storm. This would resolve
months of criticism that the
city built a hurricane shelter it
could never use, all because
of storm surge.
No shelter intentions
Ifiaki A. Rezola, senior
director of preparedness and
response for American Red
Cross of Southwest Florida, is
having a harder time deciding
the future of the elementary
school, and his report is not
finished.
A casual inspection by
Rezola left him wondering if
Venice Elementary's windows
were built to shelter stan-
dards.
"We are unsure at this
point right now if'that's been

AUTHOR'S ADVICE: FAILING IS NOT AN OPTION


Bragg: Get those scraps of paper


SUN PHOTO BY JEFF TAVARES, jtavares@venicegondolier.com
Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and author Rick Bragg speaks at Venice High School on


Thursday evening.


Pulitzer Prize-winning author Rick
Bragg gives up his secrets to
success before a crowd of young
adults at Venice High.

BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Author Rick Bragg visited Venice .High
School Thursday morning to address stu-
dents before his long-awaited community
engagement that evening.
He squinted at the youthful crowd, his
hair still wet from a shower and his shirt
unbuttoned too far down.
"You'll meet. many authors before you
escape the bondage of high school," he told
the hushed audience in his slow, Southern
drawl, "but you'll never meet another
dressed as badly as me."


It was designed to put the kids, and
Bragg, at ease. It worked.
A correspondent for The NewYork Times,
he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for feature
writing in 1996. Since then he's written three
books. He drew on those experiences as he
told tales of being shot at, chased down and
harassed, sharing at death more times than
he cared to admit.
"It was sometimes dangerous, but didn't
have to be that way," Bragg said. "It was
always fun .... And if not fun, it was always
an adventure. That's what writing is: an
adventure."
A different world
Bragg described writing about the
human condition the world over, from his
upbringing in the Deep South, to welcom-
ing Nelson Mandela to the United States, to

Hanks: New VPD chief has work cut out


EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the
third of a three-part series on the
Venice Police Department's efforts
to make Venice safe.
BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

It has been stated by Ven-
ice police officials and veri-
fied statistically that Venice is
one of the safest cities in
Florida.
VPD Chief Jim Hanks said
that means a new chief, to be
named before time Hanks
retires in March, has his, or
her, work cut out. (There are
two female candidates appli-


cants for the job, according to
Venice Personnel Director
Brenda Diggs.)
"They are going to have to
be concerned about recruit-
ment, retention, retirement
and community growth,"
Hanks said. "And they are
going to have to be flexible."
Recruitment
The recruitment issue is
going to be a big challenge for
a new chief, Hanks said.
"The pool of applicants for
all jobs in law enforcement is
shallow," Hanks said. "You
want to attract and recruit the
best and right now there is a


bidding war going on be-
tween the agencies in South-
west Florida for good talent."
Venice Police Deputy Chief
Dan McGoogan put it in these
words: "We have to be com-
petitive."
Veteran officers discuss the
difference in today's recruits
introspectively. They say
today's recruits are better
trained, smarter and more
worldly than their counter-
parts of 20-30 years ago.
However, "more worldly"
often translates into, "What
can your agency do for me?"
not, "Here's what I can do for
your agency," like it was a


generation ago. -
Hanks said that apparent
change in motivation is not
necessarily bad, just different,
and the agencies must learn
to adjust.
Retention
Hanks said once you get
the recruits, keeping them is
another issue.
Much of it has to do with
plain, simple economics,
which appears to be the pro-
pellant for the interagency
bidding wars.
"Benefits like the insur-
ance and retirement package
- we have to pay into ours,


the sheriff does not. That rep-
resents more than a 7-percent
gain for them right there
because we have to pay into
ours," Hanks said. "We do not
have automatic cost of living,
the only department in
Venice that does not have
cost of living."
Retirement
Balancing the incoming
and outgoing is going to pre-
sent a whole new set of prob-
lems for a new chief.
While you may be gaining,

String of island home burglaries still unsolved

More than two dozen bur-
glary victims on the island of
Venice apparently napped

sense, home-security course.
"The suspect is entering
the homes (and vehicles)
through unlocked doors and
windows," Venice Police
Detective Eric Hill said. "The

Twenty-six homes have

No move made

to buy Caspersen

From the Jan. 20, 1975, Venice Gondolier Sun.


STAFF REPORT

Although two years have
passed since voters approved
a $7.75 million bond issue
to buy lands for public use,
including Caspersen County
Park, the county has made
no move to acquire the
South County property.
It was generally recognized
by area voters in 1973 that
Caspersen's Beach was in-
cluded in the bond issue to


entice South County voters
to approve the package. Poll
watchers firmly believed the
issue could not have passed
without the local property.
Two other land parcels
belonging to the Arvida Cor-
poration in the north county
were purchased within weeks
after the issue was approved.
But the Caspersen family
has not been officially con-
tacted since voters gave their
OK.

The beachfront property
was originally deeded to the
county for 20 years by O.W.
Caspersen. At the end of
that time the property was
to revert to a family trust.
At that time, the Casper-
sens said the 20 years would
provide ample time for the'
county to purchase the two
miles of beach if they desired.
When the bond issue went
to the polls, the county said
it wanted only a portion of
the property. And, although

submerged lands on the
Arvida site in Sarasota, it said
the Caspersen mangroves
were not desirable. The coun-
ty did, however, want the
beach.
Although both the county
and the Caspersens had the
property appraised at the
same price, the county was
willing to pay less for the sec-
tion of property it wanted'
than the Caspersens said it
was worth.

The opinion of City Man-
ager Marty Black doesn't ap-
pear to be enough for a panel
of five citizens who will de-
cide if proposed changes to
the Venice City Charter should
go to voters.
In th6ir first meeting,
members talked about how
they want to receive staff
reports, examples from other
cities and outside opinions
on three proposals giving the
city manager more power.
A fourth proposal would
alter term limits, allowing a
council member to be elect-
ed mayor without having to
sit out a year after serving
three consecutive terms.
The three proposals affect-
ing the city manager's office
drew the most conversation.
The first idea is to elimi-
nate the finance director's
status as an independent
charter officer, making that
person an employee of the
city manager; the second, to
allow the fire and police
chiefs to be hired, fired and
disciplined by the city man-
ager, instead of city council;
and the third idea would
allow the city manager to
conduct audits of other de-
partments like the recent


police department report -
without asking for council
approval.
"I'd just like to see some
outside input rather than just
kicking this around our-
selves," Charter Review Com-
mittee vice chair Greg Sha-
nika said.
In addition to Shanika,
committee members are
chair Greg Roberts, Jim Leis,
Diana Mier and Jean Tram-
mell. Council member i Bill
Willson is the council liaison.
Timetable
The committee has until
July to render a recommenda-
tion in order to make the
November election cycle, If
the board asks for changes,
city council must pass an
ordinance in order to place it
on the ballot.
Members said they would
encourage public input at
every one of their meetings.
They tentatively scheduled
them to be the first Wednes-
day and third Thursday of
every month, but this sub-
ject to change.
The next meeting is sched-
uled for 1:30 p.m. Thursday,

isn't given advance notice
about investigations. The re-
ports still would be public
records.
As for fire and police chief,
Black believes council should
maintain authority to hire,
but discipline and termina-
tion should be part of the
city manager's power, to re-
move the "political nature"
and "public circus" of a chief
reporting directly to council,
Black said.
The issue of the finance
director isn't as simple for
Black. His concern is ineffil
ciency because, as the chart-
er is written now, the finance
director has no oversight
over purchases made by the
city manager.

Road impact fees



raised 15 percent


Sarasota County is also going to
reexamine its fee structure.


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

In what promises to be an
ongoing debate among the
Sarasota County commis-
sioners, they agreed Wednes-
day to increase road impact
fees 15 percent.
They also agreed a compre-
hensive study needs to be
done to get a breakdown of
where all of the tax money is
being spent and how much
money the county will need
to accommodate up to
100,000 new homes.
The study will include an
option to pay
for all future ..
road expanr-
sion projects
through the
impact fee
program. h
In, what
some called
a small step
in a long Staub
process, the
item reveals the county's
woeful shortage of adequate
roads now and the high costs
of what will be needed in the
next 25 years.
"To me, all we are doing is
making the small incremental
step," Commissioner. Shan-I
non Staub said at the end of
the discussion. "We need to
get this study to understand
where we are and to change
what we are doing."
Commissioner Jon Thaxton
said he just wants the taxes
existing and future residents
pay to be fair: .'
He I dosed stripping'
property taxes, gas taxess, tele-
communication taxes and
other taxes from road expan-
sion projects and letting
those projects be funded
solely by impact fees. He sug-
gested using the money for
other infrastructure improve-
ments, such as sidewalks,
expanding transit and other
options.
Staub immediately object-
ed because if that were to


happen, projects such as the
Center Road widening in
Venice would lose a large
portion of the funding.
"You can't take that money
away from works in progress,"
she said.. -
Thaxton argued that it was-
n't his intention to end any
program, and he opted to
reword his motion to have
staff do an impact study that
would consider the actions
he suggested.
Making a point
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson was equally concerned
about Thaxton's original pro-
posal, citing the commitment
of some of those taxes to pay
back various bonds.
"We really can't touch that
money," Patterson said. "But
I agree we need a more log-
ical approach to how we pay
for this stuff."
Thaxton later said the
bonded projects would be
untouched.
The board agreed if Thax-
ton's proposal were to come
to fruition, it would dramati-
cally increase impact fees.
Thaxton later admitted he
didn't expect his motion to
be accepted and was only
putting it out.to make a point.
"We have
deficiencies,
and we need
to have a .
better system, .r" ',
which is fair,
to take care
of those de-
ficienci-es,
he sac'd. r id`1
: bwthi-"anrit" Mills "r
to pay its fair
share, let's find out what that
would mean."
The original discussion of
raising impact fees was side-
tracked because the existing
formula to use multiple taxes
to pay for expansion, which
is the only way impact fees
can be spent, doesn't cover
one quarter of the needs.
Thaxton said the long-


term planning for the county
projects project a need for
about $1.8 billion in new
roads. Impact fees would only
pay for about $300 million of
that cost.
"It is woefully short," he
said.
Symbolic
Clarke Davis, a county
public works transportation
manager, brought the issue
before the board as a contin-
uation of an Oct. 25 public
hearing. That is when the
board sought an increase in
the fees that was fair and
legally binding.
The increase to $2,874 for
single-family homes will go
into effect Feb. 27. Any build-
ing permit application filed
before that point would pay
the old rate, Davis said.
The original plan called
for a potential increase of 27
percent, but recent court
cases made that option un-
viable Wednesday.
Jay Brady, executive direc-
tor of the Gulf Coast Builders
Exchange, argued any in-
crease in the impact fees is
unfair. If the increase is going.
to happen, he asked that the
county opt for a lower in-
crease of 13.2 percent, claim-
ing the county,was double-
billing builders.
Commission Chair David
Mills agreed with Brady's
logic and was the lone dis-
senter to the 15-percent in-
crease.
"It is not much less, but it
is symbolic," Mills said.
Davis said the rate that
was settled on was based on
crediting builders for existing
local capacity impacts and
h'o t 'gro wth wich'i kwfinat

Thaxton concluded his re-
marks before the final vote
by saying that giving credit to
someone who didn't pay for
the bills in the first place was
beyond his understanding.
"People are going to get
fed up," he added. "Let growth
fund its fair share."

County reworks windfall


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

A little bit of money will go
a long way in helping the list
of projects that make up the
1-cent local government
infrastructure sales tax, Sara-
sota County officials said.
County staff received ap-
proval from county commis-
sioners Wednesday to accept
aa additional $39 million in
revenues, while adding eight
new projects to the priority
list.
The county also dropped
four projects from its priority
list, since they have been
completed or received money
from other sources.
Jeff Seward, the county's
manager for fiscal planning
and budget, told the board
that the coun-
ty has re-
ceived $309.3
million in
extra money,
well ahead of
the expect-,
ed $270.6 mil-
lion.
So far, the
Thaxton county has
put $293.9
million into projects with the
balance of $15.4 million to be
applied to projects at a later
date.
The reason for the differ-
ence in what is set to be spent
and the revenue is the cre-
ation of a cushion to account
for unexpected costs.
"With the changing costs
for everything right now, we
had to be cautious," Seward
said.
Seward said the money
has been 'there for some
time, but.the board needs to
approve the changes because
the item was decided through
a referendum.
Commissioners asked
most of their questions con-
cerning the project, list when
the public hearing \,as set
two weeks ago. At that time.,
they received information
about why projects are added
or fall off the list.
They were told that it is a
good thing because it means
projects are being completed.
The penny sales tax was
initially approved by voter
referendum in 1989. It was
extended in 1997 for another
10 years, running from Sept.
1, 1999, through Aug. 30, 2009.
Under this infrastructure


surtax extension, the county
expects its share of the tax to
be about $310 million -
money used to build or
improve roads, bridges, public
buildings and parks and
recreation facilities.
The school district re-
ceives 25 percent of the
money raised and the re-
mainder is distributed
among the county and
municipalities, based on a
population formula. The
original project list was
established in 1998 by voters
and the sales tax was esti-
mated at the time at the $270
million figure.
Each project on the original
list was approved through a
public hearing process and
has been amended through
the years the same way.
Seward said the projects
on the list get money based
6n shifting priorities.
Tracking
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson said she was concern-
ed about tracking the money
in a way everyone can un-
derstand.
"If you don't trace that, no
one would have any way of
knowing the money was put
back," 'Patterson said citing a
recent example of the county
receiving a $350,000 grant
for a park on Honore Avenue


Most projects are being
funded through multiple
sources that can either speed
up or delay their progress.
There are currently 69
projects on
the list.
The addi-
tions to the
project list in-
clude money "J
for the follow- '
ing projects:
Venice fire
stations No. 1
and No. 2; Patterson
Hon ore
Avenue construction (Bee
Ridge to Fruitville road con-
nection, including the land
purchase); the purchase of
hybrid buses; Blackburn Point
Marina; Gulf Gate Library; and
a countywide energy redun-
dancy.
Projects that fell off the list
include the Englewood Sports
.Complex, a fire/rescue/safety
building on Venice island, a
hazardous waste station and
a 9-1-1 dispatch address
location system.
Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton received clarification
about the Blackburn Point
Marina project, which actu-
ally includes some money for
the purchase of 11 acres for a
boat ramp area. The land
will eventually be used as a
boat ramp and nature park.

that had been paid for by the
sales tax money.
The money was returned
to the sales tax fund, Seward
said.
He added that there is an
effort under way to create a
project-by-project list to ac-
count for the various shifts
in money.
"We are trying to clean up
the accounting," Seward said.

recruits, you may be losing
something that is arguably
just as, if not more, valuable.
"We have 17 people, super-
visors and officers, that are
eligible for retirement right
now," Hanks said. "Within 12-
36 months there will be a
wealth of experience going
out the door."
It takes many years and
tens of thousands of dollars to
turn a raw recruit into a finely


tuned law enforcement offi-
cer, one with the judgment
and wisdom to make life and
death calls on the spur of the
moment and still relate to
the citizen who may only be
asking directions.

Growth
As a community grows, so
mustits infrastructure, services,
departments and agencies. ,
Hanks said VPD is manag-
ing to keep pace.
"This city is expanding. We


have good people here. We
live in a community where
there is a church on every cor-
ner and every Sunday it is
filled," Hanks said. "And the
biggest thing in town is the
Friday night football game.
Norman Rockwell would be
proud. I am proud."

Flexible
Flexibility, as a law enforce-
ment term, can mean the abili-
ty to know when to escalate
and when not to escalate, or


when to shoot, and as impor-
tant, when not to shoot
As an administrative term,
flexibility takes a different
meaning.
Flexibility is a necessary
component of any good com-
mand officer, especially a chief.
"You have to be able to be
flexible, accessible look,
my name is still in the phone
book-- adapt, improvise arid
overcome on a moment's
notice," Hanks said. "You
must constantly tell yourself


things are going to change,
know what things can be
changed, what things can't,
and have the wisdom to know
the difference."

Is Venice ready?
Hanks also knows that the
changes could involve having
a female chief take over when
he leaves.
How does Hanks feel
about a female police chief
for Venice?
"To me it makes no differ-


ence, none, as long as they are
qualified," he said. "Do I think
we (the community) are
ready for a woman chief?
Absolutely."
McGoogan agrees.
"Yes, the community is
ready, it would be great,", he
said. "There are a handful
down here now."
Hanks, who last spring
announced his plan to retire,
has been chief for five years.
He has been with the depart-
ment for 30 years.

As of Thursday, Rezola had

"It wasn't designed to be a

This came as news to some
on Venice City Council and
the city manager.
It was their understanding
that the new school would be

"Failing wasn't an option,"
Bragg said. "it's still about not

The driving force still with-

"Writing allowed me to do
some things for my family I

Bragg lightly touched on
some of the dark days,
wrestling with the demons of
others and some of his own.


Are you open?
Having it be "understood"
what is or is not a shelter has
led to several months of con-

reasonable start.
Police officials said that
anyone who wants to get into
your house badly enough,
will. The same is true for your
car.
But there are specific, com-
mon-sense precautions you
can take such as locking up
- that throw up barriers to
make it more difficult.
"If somebody finds your
doors and windows locked,"
one police officer said, "do
you think they are going to
take a chance of waking
somebody up by rattling locks
and windows, or maybe go to
another house where the
doors are unlocked ahd they
can just walk right in without
making a sound?"
Be a good neighbor
Another element of the
report is important.
October 2005, in Country
Club Estates, an occupied res-
idential home:
"Suspect fled on foot from
the house as a friend routine-
ly checked on the 96-year-old
resident at 0545 hours."
Police applaud the efforts
of people to routinely check
on their neighbors, especially
the elderly.
On an much darker note,
police (and courts) view
nighttime burglars, particu-
larly those who break into
occupied houses, as poten-
tially more dangerous that
garden-variety, daytime bur-
glars who may break in when
theyknowyou are gone. (That
view may not be shared by all
jurisdictions.)
The reason is the risk of
confrontation in an occupied
burglary is always there,
police said.

SCAT overhaul




approved by BOCC


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Getting around Sarasota
County by bus is about to get
easier, as the county commis-
sioners approved plans for
an upgrade to the Sarasota
County Area Transit system.
Alan Hoffman, a consultant
for SCAT with The Mission
Group, told commissioners
that they need to look at their
transit system in a different
way, and it should be done
in three phases.
The first phase would be to
reinforce the existing system.
Sarah Blanchard, of county
Public Works and SCAT, said
Stage No. 1 of the future
growth will begin by March
and include more frequent
bus service on U.S. 41 be-
tween the city of Sarasota
and Manatee County.
There will be an addition
of two express routes to the
SCAT system, including a bus
every 30-45 minutes on U.S.
41 between Venice and Sara-
sota, with stops at Sarasota
Memorial Hospital and shop-
ping centers.
The other express route
would be on Fruitville Road
from Interstate 75 to the
downtown area.
There is also an option to
increase the number of buses
running along busy routes
from the current hourly rate
to 30 minutes and even every
15 minutes where warranted.
Blanchard said SCAT is
keeping its options open and
could even expand hours
beyond 7 p.m. and include
Sunday.
"We are still working on
that part of the plan," she said.
AtoB
Blanchard called boih ex-
press routes "employment
trips" that provide a concen--
trated service to areas of
where jobs are with where
the people actually live.
Hoffman said the next


step for SCAT is to efficiently
use the existing system to get
more people to ride buses.
"If they can't get from
point A to point B in a timely
manner without worrying
about anything else, people
won't ride the bus," he said..
Blanchard said the second
phase will include a neigh-
borhood feeder system. This
would create intensive local
routes in Englewood and
North Port to service the
community and link it with
the overall system.
"We really wanted to focus
on the emerging areas in
South County," she said. "It is
a connect circulator system."
The details of the services
are still being worked out,
but she said they should be
up and running by October.
SCAT is expecting to have
service cross into Charlotte
County if an interlocal agree-
ment can be reached. That
service would be very lim-
ited.
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson was pleased with that
because there has been some
concern among community
leaders in North Port and
Englewood that no new ser-
vice improvements would
come online this year..
"I can say: 'Hold on. Some-
thing's coming.' That's great,"
Patterson said.
Blanchard said the service
in North Port would'include
Price and Sumter boulevards
and the Riley Chase apart-
ment complex.


Looking ahead
Hoffman also gave com-
missioners a glimpse into the
future with special lanes for
buses in high traffic areas as
an option to "make transit a
superior option to the auto-
mobile."
Commission Chair David
Mills said he wants SCAT to
better promote itself and
even suggested a year-long
ride-for-free program to give
people the chance to try
using the system.
Patterson said she likes
everything she heard about
the future of the transit sys-
tem and said she is confident
the money provided will go a
long way.
Hoffman said the ultimate
goal of having a viable transit
system Will be difficult to
achieve, but if it works well,
the result will be less traffic.
SCAT officials expect the
changes to increase ridership
by as much as 25 percent in
the coming years.
SCAT currently averages
1.8 million riders each year,
with a goal of 2.25 million.
Most of the changes to
the SCAT system are covered
by the budget increase, but
the county is also relying on
various grants to pick up any.

bridge. Forty-six deep-water
boat slips and 19 covered ones
for homeowners and the pub-
lic were included in the plan.
Since then, five of the slips
have been made available for
public rental. Instead of three
buildings, the units will be
housed in a single structure.
The commercial properties

cluded met with the approval
of county planners because it

public, according to Whealey.
"We think we can finally
bring this matter to a happy
conclusion," he said. "We ap-
pear to be in agreement with
county staff on what best
serves the county, so we're
hopeful."
Citing the continuing liti-
gation, representatives of the
county's planning and devel-
opment services and zoning
refused to comment.

river study

Southwest Florida Water Management District
scientists are studying the Peace River. Sarasota
County wants to learn how phosphate mining


Keeping it neat


would affect the Myakka

BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

Sarasota County wants a
Peace River study expanded
so it can learn how activities
such as agriculture and devel-
opment affect water quality,
and what long-term conse-
quences Manatee County
phosphate mining projects
could have on the Myakka
River.
On Jan. 10, the county
commission agreed. .to ask
Southwest Florida Water
Management District for the
expanded study because of
concerns about phosphate
mining adjacent to Wingate
Creek, which is a tributary of
the Myakka River.
"All I'm looking for is equal
protection for the Myakka
River," said commissioner Jon
Thaxton. "Until Florida does a
cumulative impact study
about phosphate ,mining -
its history, present and future
- we will never be able to
measure its impact."
Sarasota County is in a
peculiar position with respect
to the rivers. It has committed
$85 million to develop the
Peace River as a public water
supply- even though the river
isn't in the county while it
takes no water from the 34-
mile stretch of Myakka River'
that runs through the county.
"We've asked the U.S.
/xy-.Co6rps of Engineer, and
Florida Department of En-
vironmental Protection to do
cumulative impact studies
about the long-term effect of
phosphate mining, but they
won't," Thaxton said. "This
may be the best we can do."
The Myakka River was des-
ignated a Florida Wild and
Scenic River by -the state
Legislature in a 1985 act that
provides for preservation and
management of that 34-mile
portion. Most of the river's
watershed lies to the north in
Manatee County.
It does not become well-
defined as a river until its
numerous tributaries come
together near the Sarasota

River.

County line where the river
enters Myakka River State
Park, which is famous for its
diverse wildlife. A 12-mile
segment of the river runs
through the park.
While the Water Manage-
ment District has identified
the Myakka River as a possi-
ble future public water supply
source, environmental orga-
nizations would vigorously
oppose any effort to withdraw
millions of gallons and possi-
bly damage its delicate eco-
system.
The Peace River is an en-
tirely different matter. It flows
through Polk, Hardee, DeSoto
and Charlotte counties before
it empties a billion gallons of
water on an average day into
Charlotte Harbor. Commun-
ities have exploited it for a
. variety of reasons.
Phosphate mines, agricul-
tural runoff and population
growth along upper regions of
the Peace River are of deep
concern to environmental
experts. Severe damage to the
river from Hurricane Charley
in 2004 dramatized the
importance of plans to pro-
tect its health.
Last year, the Peace River
was identified by American
Rivers, a nonprofit organiza-
tion based in Washington,
D.C., as one of the .nation's
"Most Endangered Rivers"
due to the threat of phos-
phiqe mine 'discharges .in
Hardee and Polk counties.
"The phosphate industry
has learned a lot over the
years about how to obtain
permits for new mines,"
Thaxton said. "It can take an
existing 2,000-acre permit
and expand it to 20,000 acres,
or a 20,000-acre permit and
expand it to six new permits
for 3,000-acre projects."
This ability to manipulate
the system and obtain mining
permits from state officials is,
according to Thaxton, the
way phosphate companies
avoid dealing with the cumu-
lative impacts of what they do
to bays, lakes, rivers and other
ecosystems.

'Dirty Bridge' may stay dirty


Venice City Council is willing to split the painting
cost with county, but not to take on future main-
tenance expenses.


BY JJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


Spending $167,000 to pow-
erwash and paint Venice
Avenue Bridge made few city
council members blink.
Asking the city to assume
all future bridge maintenance
made them say no.
Council members agreed
to split the cost in half -
$83,500 with Sarasota
County to finally paint one of
theW, il;y's gateways to,,Venice,
island and the beach. They
rejected the idea by county
commissioners of splitting all
future maintenance costs of
the county-owned road,
which City Attorney Bob An-
derson said raises some legal
questions.
A year ago, county com-
missioners and city council
agreed to work together to
paint the bridge. Disagree-
ments on participation have
bounced between county and
city staff, and Venice feels as if
it was excluded from having a
say in the scope of the work
and its cost.
Council members voted 6-
0 to pay for half the painting


cost, but rejected the idea of
paying future costs.
"The county's desire to
shift maintenance responsi-
bility to the city for the Venice
Avenue Bridge finish raises...
concerns over maintenance
practices of the county that
have reflected a less proactive
effort at beautification along
Venice Avenue," City Man-
ager Marty Black wrote in a
memo.
Also on Thrusday
"." Here "are "other meeting,
highlights from Thursday:

Council approved entering

with finance, director candi-
date Jeff Snyder of Lubbock,
Texas. The city has been with-
out a full-time finance direc-

Approved a request by J&J
Homes to amend the prean-

257 acres formerly known as
Stay-N-Play RV Resort. With
the new name of BellaVenetia
Community .Development
District, developers would
like to build a miniature city
with homes. apartments and;
stores. The, Bella Venetia site
would have 1,919 residential
units, 120 hotel rooms, 120
condo-hotel units and
113,000. square feet of retail
space, according to the re-
quest. As of now, the annexa-
tion deal does not allow for
"residential" development.
School tax extension -
Bob Earley, associate superin-
tendent with Sarasota County
School Board, spoke to city
council seeking support of


the district's 1-mill ad val-
orem property tax. A vote was
not held, but two council
members spoke in favor of
passing the tax, as did the
Venice Area Chamber of
Commerce. The Venice Tax-
payers League spoke against
the tax, saying it is only
"throwing money at the prob-
lem" instead of providing a
solution.

OUR VIEW


Exercise: I

recent study that concludes that regu-
lar exercise helps an older person's
chances of not being afflicted with
memory loss or dementia certainly shines a
light on our comer of the world.
The study concluded that older people
who exercised three or four times per week
have a 30' to 40 percent lower risk of demen-
tia or Alzheimer's disease.
Our area of the state boasts thousands of
folks who are of retirement age, and then
some. And don't look now, but within a short
period of time the much talked-about "baby
boomers" will be retiring.
Guess what state is likely to be their No. 1


moving it or risk losing it


choice. You guessed it, Florida. And what part
of Florida stands a good chance of attracting
a large number of boomers? Right again,
right here in beautiful Southwest Florida.
This area is blessed with a large medical
community that is available to those who
may need regular medical care due to
advancing age.
That's a good thing, because not having
adequate medical facilities, doctors, clinics
and the like when needed is a recipe for dis-
astrous consequences.
This is where we can step in and take con-
trol of our own destiny to a certain extent.
Are you in the age bracket that, according


to the study, could benefit from regular, mod-
erate exercise? OK, a quick check of our phys-
ical activity might cause us to start looking
for that pair of walking shoes we tossed into
the closet years ago.
Simply walking on a regular basis has long
been known to have a positive health benefit.
According to experts, power walking is not
even required; just normal walking on a reg-
ular basis can help.
But should you become bold enough to
join a gym or exercise class, who knows what
benefits you might accrue? Of course, before
you go running out the door, it is always wise
to consult your doctor before starting any


type of exercise program.
It stands to reason as your heart pumps
more blood through your body, a portion of
that blood is going to reach your brain, which
could help you remember things better and
helli reduce your risk of dementia.
To us that sounds like a good trade-off -
afew days a week of regular exercise to possi-
bly ward off dementia is a sound investment.
What side benefit might be created due to
more exercise? Perhaps thousands more
Floridians would never have to live in a long-
term care facility.
It's all up to us. We can move it, or maybe
lose it.


Time to learn



our lesson


JOE BROWER
COLUMNIST


The noted economist Milt-
on Friedman once said, "No-
thing is so permanent as a
temporary government pro-
gram :' ''
For the latdgt ariiple' of
how true that axiom is, one
need look no further than the
ever-growing drumbeat over
the upcoming March 14 vote
regarding the continuance of
. the 1-mill property tax, which
seeks to continue the flood of
money flowing into the
Sarasota school system's cof-
fers.
Since my space is limited,
I'll put things in a nutshell:
The schools already get
enough money, and the peo-
ple running the schools need
to show the taxpayers of Sara-
sota County what has been
achieved with the large sums
already paid in the form of
higher taxes.
On that last point, don't
hold your breath.
If extended, this tax is pre-
dicted to generate
$250,000,000. That's an awful
lot of zeros.
And no matter how you
slice it, that's an incredibly
large amount of money for
such a relatively small area.
Money that will come, as it
always has, right out of the
pockets of you and me.
It would be completely
reckless to pony up such a,
huge sum without knowing
what one will get for it. Look
at it this way- If you were hav-
ing a new house built, would
you not demand to see the
blueprints, to see the proper-
ty, to see examples of the
builder's prior work? And all
that due diligence for an
amount considerably less
than is being proposed here.
If that doesn't give you
pause, perhaps this fact will:
Many Sarasota County teach-
ers aren't buying into the
"NeXt Generation Learning
Plan." Many of their misgiv-
ings are the same as mine:
Where will the money go,
exactly? And why are we not
more involved in the deci-
sion-making process?
I'd like to hear more about
increasing teachers' salaries
and less about socialist
dreams of providing each
high school student with a
"free" laptop computer.
It's good to see the media
providing a means for taxpay-
er input regarding the school
tax proposal, although it's


uncertain as to how much
this will change the minds of
those "large and in charge."
Which brings us right back
to the issue of the school
authorities' desire for unac-
countability. If they truly re-
spected the public's'right to
know, they themselves would
ask for and respect the pub-
lic's opinion.
It's interesting that we cur-
rently have two noted colum-
nists opining on these issues,
arguing from completely
opposite sides of the debate.
On one hand you have
ABC's John Stossel, whose re-
cent documentary, "Stupid in
America," has, with grim clar-
ity, laid bare two truths: first,
the incredible financial waste
in the public school system,
and second, continually
throwing money at the prob-
lem won't solve anything.
On the other we have Tom
Friedman, who was in town
recently blatantly stumping
for the tax. For a fee, of course.
With all due respect to Tom
Friedman, Dr. Gary Norris,
Barry Dubin and the rest of
the "more money, more mon-
ey" crowd, "more money"
isn't the answer, and it's a fair
guess they know it. No matter
how many dollars their "vis-
ion" accumulates, it's a safe
bet they will always be back
asking for more.
And their primary argu-
ment will be the mantra of
"It's for the children," so that
to even suggest that we're al-
ready spending enough is
akin to the most vile of blas-
phemies.
Yet we have seen this sort
of sophistry before. Most of
the angst and rhetoric I saw
directed at the FCAT seemed
to be most deeply rooted in
simple resistance to account-
ability..
Let's face it. If you're able to
build your hegemony and
further your social engineer-
ing schemes at tlie taxpayers'
expense without having to
answer for anything you do,
what politician wouldn't want,
to set himself up in such a
fashion?
But there is a deeper truth
at issue here. Something most
people reading this probably
don't realize is that there is
absolutely nothing in the
Constitution that authorizes
the public school system to
exist at all at the federal level.
The wise and prescient origi-
nators of that "supreme law of
the land" left that matter
completely up to the states.
But to quote political es-
sayist Joseph Sobran, "the
U.S. Constitution poses no
serious threat to our form of'
government." Ah, but that's a
subject for another column.

Thieves targeting mobile home parks.


Editor:
I am a full-time resident in Venice and have the delightful
opportunity to share my winters with my senior parents:
Venice has been an excellent way for them to escape the
cold and enjoy our beautiful little town and all it has to offer.
Well, unfortunately, Venice is starting to offer a little too much.
There has been a rash of mobile home thefts occurring on
the island of Venice. I was very shocked to hear of this and
almost did not believe it until yesterday. I have never read any-
thing in the paper.
Our parents have not been here a week and it happened.
While they were asleep at night, someone broke in and stole
from them like so many of their neighbors.
To say they only took money would be a big understate-
ment. The whole mobile home community is afraid. Our
seniors are not sleeping at night, and are installing alarms and
additional locks on their doors. I would have never guessed my
parents would be victimized in our little paradise.
Between increasing insurance costs, worrying if the land
under them will be sold someday for new condos, and now
questioning their safety, how much can seniors take?
I was told these burglaries have been going on since May. I
just wonder, if the same number of new condos or villas were
being targeted on our island, would this person or persons be
caught already?
Finally, please ask your readers to be on alert and call
authorities with any information.

Faith in
humanity
restored
Editor:
On Saturday, Jan. 21, we
attended theVenice-Nokomis
Rotary Art Show near the air-
port. Unbeknownst to me,
four pieces of identification
slipped out of my camera
case that I had been using for
a purse.
I never realized the ID,
including my driver license
and a credit card, was missing
until the next morning, when
I went to cash a check. On a
hunch, we drove back to the
Rotary Art Show and sure
enough, they had all four
pieces of ID at the lost-and-
found (information) booth.
So to the honest persons)
who turned in my identifica-
tion, I thank you from the
bottom of my heart.
It's an act like this that real-
ly restores your faith in hu-

Where is all
that money from?
Editor:
"The rich get rich and the
poor get poorer, in the mean-
time, in between time, ain't
we got fun."
We could redefine that to
reflect the current situation in
our little corner of paradise:
The rich get condos, and the
poor get kicked out, in the
meantime, in betweentime,
this ain't no fun!
With the steady influx of
Cadillacs, Lincolns, Lexuses'
and other prestigious, peo-
ple-carrying trucks, coupled
with the outrageously priced
condo developments pop-
ping up like weeds, the oft-
heard question comes up:
"Where is all of that ,money
coming from? Who are these
big spenders, who act like
drunken sailors while kicking
out low-income, elderly rent-


ers in order to satisfy their
greed?"
What if our elected leaders,
being aware of the history of
previously enforced prohibi-
tion, decide to legalize a cer-
tain product, eliminating the
criminal element, turning a
prohibitive expense into a
profit, and greatly reducing
our overcrowded prison pop-
ulation. Would that answer
your question? I think this
obnoxious display of wealth
would slowly dissipate with-
out the revenue.

Callers: Shell yes, shell no


Shell rights. No, there should not be a limit on the amount
of shells one can take from the beach. Shells are one of the ben-
efits of Florida. The caller said it is not against the law but is
against their ethics. Furthermore, the caller speaks of women
killing up their buckets, and then states, "We did capture some
of the buckets." That certainly is against my ethics. That's steal-
ing on your part. Once a person picks up shells or shark's teeth,
hey belong to them, even if they're left in a bucket or contain-
ir while they look for more or go to their car. It's like fishing. The
'ish belong to anyone who catches them. It would not be right
-o pick up their bucket of fish and call them yours. I've lived in'
-he Venice area since the early 1980s. I've, sat by piles of shells 2
-'eet high and 4 feet long and picked out those I wanted, and I1
-iave fruit jars full of shark's teeth. I make lovely craft items for
my home and sell them at craft sales. Many people who do not
make crafts enjoy buying them. I and many others spend many
tours gathering and making these items. Why would you want
-o take that pleasure away from the residents and visitors? How
sad. And speaking of sand, I brought a small container of sand
Tom Hawaii many years ago. Was that wrong, too?


Limited use. Yes, there defi-
nitely should be a limit on the
amount of shells that one can
'ake from the beach. How
tiany millions did we spend
'n the beach renourishment
ind now the people are taking
ut buckets and buckets of

Fume control. I noticed
that there have been some
recent comments and, as you
requested, some information
regarding the airport and its
vapors and fumes. It really is
an important issue because
sometime fuel does not fully
combust in jet engines and
some of it comes out of the
back of the aircraft when cer-
tain fuels are used, especially
when the plane's in its warm-
up or they're sitting there
idling just before take-off.
Sometimes this happens for a
half-hour, 45 minutes to an
hour at a time at the Venice
airport. This definitely could
be a very serious problem for
the lungs as well as the kid-
neys and liver. So it really isn't
a bad idea to see what can be
done as far as what can help
to at least catch some of the'
vapors, like a vapor barrier or
even trees. We don't want this
mist coming from that airport
to be affecting people's skin
and lungs. Again, this is a seri-
ous, serious problem.
Grass woes. I understand
that Sarasota County sends a
maintenance worker every
morning with a push, mower
to mow the croquet courts in
Venice. This is the same
Sarasota County that can't
seem to maintain the Chuck
Reiter Little League fields.
Maybe the parents, grandpar-
ents and aunts and uncles of
those hundreds of Little
League kids should call their
county commissioners and
ask about this.

NASCAR wannna-bes. Be-
ing a former police officer
with more than 22 years' ex-
perience with traffic enforce-
ment, I can truly say that rais-
ing the speed limit will not
accomplish anything, as long
as the public has to adhere by
it. Florida's situation is not
unique, but what complicates
the problem is that there is a
massive influx of retirees into
this state. A good portion of
these seniors have managed
to purchase vehicles that
apparently do not go faster
than 30 mph. Add to this the
race car wanna-bes with
NASCAR stickers all over their
pickup trucks. On any given
day, these people will seek
you out on the highway and
drive 24 inches off of your rear
bumper, regardless if you are
driving the speed limit or
going 100 mph. You can
watch the news reports and
see case after case where they
find bodies on the roadway
that have been run over by
multiple cars, without anyone
ever stopping. To me, this
points out the mentality of a
good portion of the driving
public. By posting faster
speed limits, you will only be
adding fuel to the fire of what
already exists. There is no
answer to the problem, other
than kissing your loved ones
goodbye when you leave your
home in the morning, and
hope that you will make it
safely back home at night
without becoming another
statistic.

any body of water. When you
collect hundreds of millions

The real meaning of a windfall


DEREK DUNN-RANKIN



The annual mischief is
about to begin: The Florida
Legislature will be meeting
for its annual 60-day session
in six weeks. f,
The legislators have been
preparing, and a lot of com-
mittee work is already well
under way.
There was a time, within
my memory, when the law-
makers met every two years,
giving the voters and lobby-
ists a little more time 'to relax
and breathe easy. Nowadays,
with more than 2,000 regis-
tered lobbyists, they need
every minute just to let the'
paid advocates make their
special-interest pitches.
The Legislature is going to
be awash in money. It is a real
windfall. Those replacement
roof tiles and extra sheets of
Home Depot plywood from
our rash of hurricanes gener-
ated extra sales-tax dollars.
New construction and recon-
struction continues to boost
sales-tax revenue.
The state's High School
Reform Task Force will report
on plans to tighten gradua-
tion requirements. Four years


of math, more time with
advisers and smaller learning
communities are part of the
recommendations. School
systems are already trying to
find the money for added
classrooms to meet class size
amendments.
.You might think there
would be a strong move to
devote some of the extra rev-
enue billions into long-term
educational needs by giving
capital budgets a boost.
Instead, attention seems to
be focused on an August
sales-tax holiday.
The Republican majority is
thinking about a tax-free ceil-
ing of $5,000 in August. That
could be a saving of $350 if
you have that much in your
summer spending plans.
Democrats have responded
with a suggestion that the
state just send every resident
a check for a $100 with the
rest of the money going into
essential services.
"The folks in Tallahassee
just don't get it ... at a time
when we have critical needs
in schools, roads and infra-
structure .they are proposing a
sales-tax gimmick," said Jim
Davis, criticizing both pro-
posals.
You have probably never
heard of Jim Davis. He is the
congressman from Tampa
who plans to run in the
Democratic primary for gov-
ernor.
You can bet there will be an
unusual number of pet pro-
jects.
Lobbyists will be working
under what may be a handi-
cap for some. This year legis-


lators are forbidden to accept
gifts, meals or drinks from
lobbyists. That is a healthy
change. It may not seem a big
thing, but a lunch or dinner
with lobbyist or legislators
where each pays his own way
will put a different tone on the
discussion. A Tallahassee ca-
terer says her business has
already dropped by 50 per-
cent.
The law extends to ban-
ning free ,transportation and
lodging for legislators invited
to speak at association events.
Those free hunting and fish-
ing trips are out.
Lobbyists trade in gossip,
specialgissue knowledge and
the ability to raise re-election
campaign dollars. They will
continue, free to persuade
others to contribute to an
election campaign. Last year
the health care and insurance
industry contributed a mil-
lion and a half to the
Republican Party in the state.
One aspect of the reforms
that has the lobbyists more
than a little upset is the
requirement that they dis-
close the fees they have been
paid. You can expect the lob-
byists to lobby for a change in
that part of the law. They have
already raised $90,000 to
mount a legal challenge
based on the privacy rights in
the Florida Constitution.

property is safe while the

County, city will both benefit from lot sales


BY DAVID MILLS AND
RUES. BERRYMAN
GUEST COLUMNISTS

The Atart of sales of about
:1,900 vacant lots in North
Port not only offers a unique
opportunity for people to
invest in the future of the city:
The sales proceeds will signif-
icantly benefit the residents
of the city and the county.
Bidding has started for the
auction of the lots that revert-
ed to county ownership when
the owners failed to pay taxes
on them. Based upon current
land values, the city and
county could realize an esti-
mated $40 million from the
sale of these lots.
The proceeds from the sale
will be shared, with 55 per-
cent going to North Port and
45 percent to the county. The
funds will be used to address
important programs in both
areas.
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 afford-
able housing. North Port will
use its proceeds to address
infrastructure needs in the
growing community.
Throughout the discus-
sions leading to the sale of the


properties, North Port and
Sarasota County representa-
tives have worked closely and
cooperatively on all aspects of
the agreenrent. The~, sale,
process has show%\n thact die
county and city can work
together cooperatively for the
good of all residents of
Sarasota County.
The auction will be con-
ducted in two phases by
Fisher Auction Company, the
firm the county and city hired
to organize and run the auc-
tion. Fisher was chosen for its
expertise in handling land
auctions of this magnitude.
The first phase, which just
began, is open to Internet.
bidders and people who wish
to submit written bids. Lots
will be sold individually dur-
ing this phase.
The second phase begins
Saturdaywith alive auction at
the North Port Performing
Arts Center on the campus of
North Port High School, 6400
W. Price Blvd. Both live and
Internet bids will be accept-
ed, but lots only will be sold in
bundles of five or more.
Anyone interested in bid-
ding on these lots, which is a
wonderful way to acquire
land in rapidly growing
Southwest Florida, can find
information about the lots on
the county's Web site at


scgov.net or on Fisher's Web
site at fisherauction.com.
We would like to remind
potential bidders that these
lots are being sold "as s. "
Bidders should make sure
they know the status of the
lots they plan to bid on. Most
lots will require wells and sep-
tic systems, a factor that
might be crucial in the deci-
sion to bid upon a property.
This is the most coopera-
tive, beneficial program we
have seen our two govern-
ments undertake together.
Not only will the county and
city gain significant revenues,
these abandoned properties,
some of which have been off
the tax rolls since the early
1990s, will start generating
additional revenue for both
governments and the school
board.

Asian-style dining coming to Venice


SUN PHOTO BY ROGER BUTTON i
It's been four long years since Burger King closed but it only took a few hours to tear
down the building this week. From the ashes will arise a new Panda Express at 4201
Tamiami Trail, Venice Village Shoppes. Slated to open at the end of April, the new 2,440- ,
square-foot restaurant will have inside and outside patio seating, with a drive-through
window, according to company spokeswoman Liz Miller.

Bringing a whole'nedw con-
cept to Venice will be the Pan
Asian Restaurant, where
guests will have the choice of
general seating or traditional
floor sitting.
Opening mid-February in
the former Joseph Anthony's
at 17-A Brickyard Plaza on
U.S. 41 Bypass, owners Joe
Borza and his wife, Toi, plan
to hire 20 people and open
daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
daily.
Borza operated two restau-
rants and a guest house for
the U.S. Embassy during his
long tour in the Vietnam War.
Returning to Oklahoma with
his wife, he operated a large
225-seat Asian and interna-
tional buffet for 30 years
before retiring to Venice 12
months ago. Now they have
decided to launch an upscale
restaurant offering Korean,
Chinese, Thai and Vietna-
mese cuisine and delicacies
from Singapore.
"We will have a five-page
international menu and each
week plan to offer guests a
speciality limited choice
menu of an Asian country,"
said Borza.
Part of the 60-seat restau-
rant will be entertainment
eating, where guests sit on
floor pillows dining from a
small coffee-table-style podi-
um, grilling their own dinners
in Chinese and Korean style.
Council member
starts new business
Right now insurance is a
very difficult market in Flor-
ida because a lot of compa-
nies are not taking on new
business as a result of hurri-
cane exposure. Unfortunate-
ly, some are even pulling out
of the state, said BillWillson.
"In order to be able to take
care of our clients it is neces-
sary really to have several dif-
ferent markets available, so I
have split off to create a true
independent agency," he said.
Having signed up numer-
ous homeowner insurance
companies, he continues to
write property insurance and
operates his new company,
Venice Insurance Group,
from the Roberts Insurance
building, 211 S. Nokomis Ave.
on the island.
Originally from New York,


he came to Sarasota, where
he attended school, then
spent 21 years in retail with
Sears Roebuck.
He came to Venice in 1993
to join Roberts Insurance
Group, which continues to
write auto insurance.
"When you come to 211 S.
Nokomis Ave., regardless of
which door you walk in, we
are going to make sure your
needs are met," said Willson,
a Venice City Council mem-
ber. Call 497-1300.
Mini Expo open to public
More than 25 local busi-
nesses have signed up to
attend the AARP-sponsored
Bhy Indies Mini Expo taking
place 1-3 p.m., Monday, Feb.
13, in the Bay House Club-
house, 950 Ridgewood Ave.,
Venice.
"The public is invited to
join our 1,300 Bay Indies resi-
dents in meeting local ven-
dors who are providing dis-
count coupons and prizes,"
said Bay Indies AARP Chapter
President Peggy Forte.
Exhibitors already signed
up for the event include Jaca-
randa Trace, the Venice His-
torical Society, Aston Gard-
ens, HarborChase and the
Venice Area Chamber of
Commerce, together with
travel, hearing and nursing
companies.
Claudia and
Charlie retiring
Claudia Abbott's retiring
and closing her store unless
she can find a buyer very
soon.
It was 1977 when she came
from Ohio to join relatives in
Venice. After working two
years as a computer systems
analyst, she decided to open a
shop.
"I started without knowing
what was going in, and decid-
ed everything I liked as a
hobby I would put in the
shop," said Abbott.
She was painting oils on
canvas, knitting and embroi-
dering in Claudia's Sewing
Machines & Yarn, 1241-A E.
Venice Ave., Venice. Her secret
to success was teaching cus-
tomers how to use the
machines she sold. It lead to
her becoming the top sales
shop throughout the country
for big electronic knitting
"machines up until 2000.
In 1989 she married Char-
lie, a Florida Highway Patrol
officer who retired after 25
years. He has done all the
machine repairs for the past
15 years and is best known to
many customers because of
his love of cookies brought in
by the ladies.
"I take the money and he
takes the food from old
ladies," commented Claudia.
The Abbotts plan to spend


their retirement traveling in
their big motor home across
the country, and building a
road on the 8 acres they have
acquired in North Carolina.

Another store moving
from the island
After more than 50 years,
Venice Island Upholstery &
Drapery is moving from the
island to 2155 & 2157 South
Tamiami Trail in Indepen-
dence Plaza, South Venice.
Owner and former \Vest
Virginian Gloria Corcoran
acquired the business from
Jim Hill about nine years ago.
Her design assistant, Linda
Needleman, originally from
NewYork, stated the business
is doubling in size. They will
offer custom window treat-
ments and upholstered
pieces, and will expand exist-
ing draperies accessories for
the home in the new store.
When the new store's
redecoration is completed
they will move inventory in,
to open by mid-February.
Needleman said, "We love the
island, but most of our cus-
tomers are not on the island."
The business has been
there since the '50s, having
served two generations of
Venetians. Children of cus-
tomers come in telling them
they put draperies in mom's
condo in 1971 and now they
want to do them over.
"We will miss the family
feeling by leaving the island,"
said Needleman, continuing,
"The population to serve on
the mainland is much larger,
and we won't have to wait for
those bridges." Call 488-1666.
Claudia's Too
Realty expands
Completing 28 years in
charge of public works in
Binghamton, N.Y.,. John
Finch came to Venice two
years ago and acquired
Claudia's Too Realty in Gulf
Coast Plaza at 783 South U.S.
41 Bypass, a real estate busi-
ness in operation for more
than 18 years. Recently he
opened Boyenton Mobile
Home Sales and is seeking a
licensed Realtor to manage
the company, which concen-
trates on mobile home sales
in the Bay Indies, Ridgewood
and Camelot communities.
Call 485-5593.
No more Dollar+
Was it the curse of the big
predator arriving in Osprey or
just changing buying patterns
that caused the Dollar+ store,
1095-B Tamiami Trail, in
Nokomis Village, to close?
Hopefully this is not a sign of
changing buying patterns, as
I know one teenage grandson
who will be sad to learn his
favorite store has closed.

Annredation rate extremely stronat


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS! COLUMNIST


"We can anticipate a
strong market in 2006!" con-
firmed Brian Meurs, presi-
dent of the Venice Area Real-
tors Association and a mem-
ber of the Remax Team. 733
family homes and condos
listed in November 2004, now
12 months later it's up to
1,530.
Medium priced single
family homes sold for
$239,000 and condos for
$174,000 with an average of
58 days on the market, con-
trasting 12 months later to
$313,000 and $238,000 in an
average 67 days.
Indicating in the next 12
months the inventory for
resale homes and condos will
increase, creating a stronger
buyers market with more
options and choice.
Appreciation will slow
from the 30 percent to 40 per-
cent of the past few years to
12 percent to 15 percent in
the Venice market compared
to 5 percent to 6 percent
nationwide, indicating it will
take longer to sell than a year
ago, however the apprecia-
tion rate is still extremely
strong in our market.
Rebound better than ever
"As a company, we're very
optimistic of a robust year,"
confirmed Richard Bradway,
owner of Richard Bradway
Associates, a broker in Venice
for 31 years. He believes the
Venice market has not only
survived, rarely did more than
level out, never bottoming
out as happened in so many
other areas of the country and
it will rebound better than
ever.
This market has always
remained strong because of
the. location and high stan-
dards maintained by Sarasota
County. Properties drastically
reducing prices were for the
most part overpriced. As high
as prices rose in 2005 they are
still below those of Naples. It
is more of a level playing field,


with properties that have
risen to a fair market value
and buyers realizing there is
always another sellers market
around the corner.
"Our property values will
remain strong; they always
have," concluded Bradway.
Taking a look around
"Before sellers list their
property today they interview
several Realtors to see who
has the best marketing plan
to fit their specific needs,"
according to Venice Realtor
Bob Piel, PA.
Pre-Christmas he con-
firmed listings had increased
by 50 in the past week with
130 condos and 88 houses
listed between $275,000 and
$1.5 million on the island.
Taking a look around, the area
Pelican Pointe Golf & Country
Club has 35 ranging from
$310,000 to $1.3 million;
Venice Golf & Country Club
had 16 ranging from $379,000
to $829,000; Venetia 20 rang-
ing from $354,000 to
$699,000; Sawgrass has seven
from $449,000 to $659,000
and topping the lot, Venice
Golf & River Club with 47
from $379,000 to $829,000.
These statistics are only
MLS listings .and do not
include properties for sale by
owner. Piel thinks there will
be fewer owner sellers, and
less part-time Realtors be-
cause the necessary increas-
ed costs of effective property
marketing.
Healthy market
correction necessary
"Segments of the market
and the pace of growth may
have gotten ahead of itself,",
according to local real estate
investor, Henry Rodriguez.
He believes a healthy cor-
rection in the midst of the
largest real estate boom in
American history is good for
the overall well being of the
real estate market's longevity.
It will usher in proper growth
patterns that are considered
"sustainable" for a mid-size"
county such as Sarasota.


Some would like to ha:e
prices continue to escalate it
the lofty level of the past thr e
years, but he does not think it
is healthy, possible or sustain -
able.
The market is goL g
through a digestive peri4 d
absorbing excess capacity bf
high end properties ultimate-
ly leading to stability. "In 2006
we will start to hear the words
location, location, location
again," said Rodriguez. Worms
which have been the basic
pillar of any real estate marVlet
for decades leading the way
for meaningful investments
and sustainable growth.
Very exciting
commercial market
"2005 was a very exciting
year for the Venice commir-
cial real estate market wih
record setting prices and nm
influx of new national and
regional retailers," commert-
ed George Huhn, real estate
advisor. Properties on the
island commanded a premi-
um this year.
Infill building and devl-
opment continues from US.
41 to Interstate 75 as users
take down land or use exist-
ing buildings for their own
use. 4
Relatively low financing
costs have made it prudent
for everyone, from profes-
sionals to service businesses,
to own buildings in prefer-
ence to leasing. ;
Hot sectors include ind4s-
trial and light warehousing,
which is near capacity, pqo-
fessional office condos arid
income producing properties
less than $2 million appealing
to investors. 1
*Huhn is bullish for ll
aspects of our local real estate
market in 2006. Continued
interest by larger retailers ]to
open negotiations here, and
increasing construction colts
for new properties should
drive prices moderately high-
er, but the hyper gains of the
last 12 months will return ti 4
percent to 6 percent appreci-
ation according to Huhn. i

Cook-ing up another monster season


Venice High senior seeking
second straight state wrestling title.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Young Jeremie Cook left
the wintry climes of the
Easton, Pa., area many
moons ago so he could play
baseball year-round in sunny
Florida.
Cook settled in south
Sarasota County and hit the
diamonds, excelling in Venice
Little League before moving
on to the big fields at Venice
High School.
While he will be playing
varsity baseball for. a third
year this spring, Cook has
had the most success in an
indoor winter sport.
Flat out, Cook is one of
the top wrestlers in the state.
He marched to a Class 2A
championship last year, fin-
ishing a perfect 45-0 in the
171-pound division.
Cook has not let up his
senior year. Up at 189 pounds,
he is a perfect 41-0 and has
his eyes on another state
title.
He holds several school
mat records most career
wins and most consecutive
wins the two most promi-
nent.
"They're coming at me
hard," said Cook of being


marked as a defending state
champ. "There are some who
are intimidated. It's frustrating
when they back away at the
start."
Cook is also running into
defensive-minded wrestlers
who don't want to get caught
in an arsenal of moves.
Besides being more funda-
mentally sound, Cook is also
stronger this season. Being a
total package has drawn at-
tention from college wrest-
ling powers.
"I've heard from schools
like Purdue, Penn State and
Lehigh," he said. "I have a lot
of family near Lehigh."
Besides being a great
wrestler, Cook has added
responsibilities as a senior.
"People are expecting a
lot of me," realizes Cook. "The
younger guys look up to me
for leadership. I'm trying to
fulfill that."
Cook sees the underclass-
men improving as the season
progresses.
"The team is getting better
every week," he said. "There
are. a couple guys who might
surprise some people when
we get to states."
First is the district tourn-
ament Feb. 4 at Lakewood
Ranch. The following week-


end is the regional tourney
at Charlotte High. The state
finals are Feb. 16-18 at The
Lakeland Center.
Cook is disappointed ,that
VHS only had three home
matches his senior season.
. Venice has wrestled 27 duals
this season. The reason why
there's so few home duals is
indeed puzzling.
"I want the people in town
to see how exciting wrestling
is," Cook said.
Cook wants to go out with
a bang on the baseball dia'-
mond as well. He is a first
baseman and outfield who
has had success earlier in his
career on the mound. The
left-handed thrower and bat-
ter hit over .300 as a sopho-
more but slumped at the
plate last year.
"I want to have a good
year in baseball and maybe
open up my options even
more," Cook finished.


Jeremie Cook is a perfect 41-0 so far in his senior season.


Indian Kyle Keefe, left, battles in his 152-pound bout with Charlotte's Bruce Mathews. Venice
won the match against the Tarpons, 41-27.


Venice's Brett Nelson locks up Charlotte's Kyle Provencal in their 160-pound match Thursday
night at the Teepee. Nelson pinned his opponent to raise his record to 40-1.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

It was Senior Night at the
Teepee Thursday night as,
Venice High wrestling hon-
ored four 12th graders mak-
ing solid contributions to the
program prior to the Indians
final home dual of the season
against Charlotte High.
Take a bow, Jon Hodge,
Brett Nelson, Jeremie Cook
and Anthony Saputo.
Three of them won their
bouts to help Venice to a
41-27 victory over the Tar-
pons.
The victory gives the
Indians another 20 win sea-
son. They finish at 20-7.
Charlotte's record dipped to
20-13.
Venice held an 8-6 edge
in bouts won. There was
one forfeit going the Indians
way, as Andrew Lopez was
unopposed at 103 pounds.
* The match started at 152
pounds, where Charlotte's.
Bruce Mathews posted a
10-2 major decision over
Kyle Keefe.
Nelson looked tough at 1610,
raising his personal record to
40-1 with a second period pin
of Kyle Provencal.
Charlotte won again at 171,
as Jacob McDowell
shaded Andrew Saputo,
7-4.
The Tarpons 7-6 lead was
short-lived, however.
Normally a 215-pounder,


Jim Foubister bounced down
to 189 and planted Andrew
Musgrave in just 27 seconds.
Venice coach Dan Kelly
bounced defending state
champion Jeremie Cook up to
215 to get toughened up
for state. Cook was facing
one of Charlotte's best on
Steve Delcastillo, who came in
33-5. Cook looked sharp
for two and a half periods
before tiring. Still, he had
no trouble improving his
record to 41-0 with a 14-4
decision.
At heavyweight, Anthony
Saputo worked up a sweat in
pinning Roger Gtegush in
3:40. It was Pluto's 35th win
of the season and it gave
Venice a 22-7 lead.
Lopez' forfeit win made it
28-7. At 112, Charlotte's Max
Halafska scored an 8-7 nod
over Doug Little.
At 119, Wade Consul looked
sharp for Venice with
a third period fall of Cody
Opsahl. That made the score
34-10.
It was all Pierre Frazille at
125, as he recorded a technical
fall over Billy Fields. Frazille is
one of Charlotte's top mat-
men.
Tyler Spann (130) and T.J.
Goodin (140) also took deci-
sions for Venice.
In the night's final bout,
Charlotte's Daren Griner
raised his record to 35-3
with a pin over hard-fighting
Hodge.

Treecuting faed part of sewage plant work


BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER

North Port issued a stop
work order Tuesday to the
owners of West Villages after
some confusion arose
because residents of Lake
Geraldine saw trucks showed
up on East River Road to har-
vest trees.
The residents called the
city's building department,
claiming workers were clear-
cutting land in an area where
the proposed waste treat-
ment plant is proposed for
West Villages.
Workers from Cooper
Land and Timber Co. of Ar-
cadia said they were there to
harvest trees a timber compa-
ny had bought.
Building Director Scott
Williams said his office re-
ceived several complaints
from residents, and he sent a
city inspector to the site.
"We issued the stop order
because they did not have an
underbrush clear permit,"
Williams said.
Williams said the planning
and zoning department is
looking at the annexation
agreement.
Planning and Zoning Di-


rector Sam Jones said he be-
lieved that agriculture activi-
ties are still allowed on the
property, "which includes
tree harvesting."
"(City) staff is looking into
whether the annexation
agreement allows agriculture
activities," Jones said.
Venice attorney Jeff Boone,
who represents Fourth Quart-
er Properties (West Villages),
said the 2001 annexation or-
dinance with the city allows
"bona-fide" agriculture activ-
ities to continue on the prop-
erty, which contains more
than 10,000 acres near River
Road.
"Fourth Quarter Properties
made arrangements with a log-
ging company several months
ago to harvest timber," Boone
said, adding the timing of this
was "unfortunate."
Residents have been con-
cerned about plans for a sew-
er plant planned for the West
Villages area near their Lake
Geraldine homes.
Boone said he received calls
from city officials telling him
residents are claiming that
workers are doing everything
from clear-cutting to digging
lakes and starting fires.
Boone said logging on the


ranch, when it belonged to
the Taylors, occurred on an
eight- to 10-year cycle.
"It is time for it to happen
again," Boone said.
Boone said his client will
be a "good corporate citizen"
and give the city a chance to
look into the situation.
"With the property being
as large as it is, they will look
into moving timber opera-
tions to another part of the
property," Boone said.
DiVosta Homes broke
ground on Island Walk at the
West Villages Aug. 31, in the
West Villages area. Island
Walk is an 830-acre master-
planned community.
Island Walk at the West
Villages will feature 1,869'res-
idences including single-fam-
ily homes, patio homes, and
town homes surrounded by
lakes and preserves.
It will also provide a conve-
nience store, gas station, car
wash, bank, deli and beauty
salon.
However, some of the Lake
Geraldine residents who will
be neighbors of this large
development are concerned
about the sewage plant, and
they say they will watch the
development closely.

North Port City Commission approves Divosta Homes


BY ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER


Despite a few problems,
the first commission meeting
in the new North Port city hall
commission chambers went
on as planned Monday night.
"We have some bugs to
work out," said City Manager
Steve Crowell.
"That's why we wanted to
have a meeting in here before


we started making changes."
Commissioners approved
the first reading of an ordi-
nance allowing DiVosta
Homes to begin permitting
construction of 328 dwelling
units in phases 1A and 1B of
Island Walk at West Villages,
despite the fact that no post-
annexation agreement is in
place.
'"A number of months ago,
when the DiVosta project


came to us, there was a condi-
tion in there that no building
permits would be issued until
the post-annexation agree-
ment is complete," said-
Planning & Zoning Director
Sam Jones.
"Mr. (Jeff) Boone is asking
for an exception for phase 1A
and IB. No new applications
will be granted until the post-
annexation agreement is in
place. We estimate that will be


complete on or before June
30."
Several North Port resi-'
dents, including Alice White-
and former city commission-
er Buddy Hughes, questioned
why commissioners were
even considering approving
this without the post-annexa-
tion agreement being in
place.
Boone, attorney for Di-
Vosta Homes, explained that


the developer is not going to
"fly in and then fly out."
"It's a fact, everyone should
be aware that North Port has
had bad experiences with
certain developers," Boone
said.
"My client is totally differ-
ent. Even without an agree-
ment, the West Villages Im-
provement District has spent
over $11 million in infrastruc-
ture improvements. They


have done ever-thing they've
told you they were going to
do, and they will continue to
do so. I hope to have that
agreement in hand well be-
fore June 30."

scouts learnit's fi ne,-to race. the pin~e


BY BOB MUDGE
Cub Scout Pack 100, cover-
ing South Sarasota and South
County, held its Pinewood
Derby Jan. 22. But it would
have looked a little different
to people who participated
in the more than 50-year-old
event before it went high-
tech.
The cars are still hand-
made, but the race course is
now all aluminum, with laser
timing and a computer pro-
gram that automatically fig-
ures out the four-car combi-
nations for each heat and
calculates the time and


speed of each in miles per
hour to scale of course.
The faster entries were
clocked at more than 200
mph.
One thing has not chang-
ed for the Cubs, or their fam-
ily members who raced.
"It's one of the last whole-
some events," said Pack 100
Cubmaster Gregg Carella.
The event was held at
Cramer Toyata of Venice,
which also sponsored the
concessions.
"It's something we can do
for them," said Richard Bond,
Cramer general manager.

2005 finale at Homestead-

.a notable day as well for the
driver who finished second
to Stewart in the titie chase.
Greg Biffle won the. race and


ended with one more victory
than Stewart. Biffle's victory
was his sixth. Stewart won
five times, but none of his
victories occurred in the final
10 races. Stewart realized
one of his greatest goals
when he won the Allstate
400 at Indianapolis in Au-
gust. Now he will turn his at-
tention to the most notable
remaining unachieved goal,
the Daytona 5'00, where he
led the most laps in each of
the past two years.

TOYOTA
Who's hot: Toyota. Watch closely
the rest of the year as owners who
now say they're not interested in
switching brakes start, shall we say,
slipping around?."-..








Who's not: Dodge. Chevy has a
new nose. Ford allegedly has a new
car. Meanwhile, at least so far,
Dodge has nothing. Nada. Zilch.




Why is it that NASCAR
keeps a-changin'?
ey guys, I have to agree with
Bill Howard of .Hugo, N.C.,
about all the changes (to
NASCAR).
We used'to spend a lot of money
going to races in the South, but not
anymore. I don't even watch very
many on TV. I don't watch Daytona or
Talladega at all. I used to love the
slingshot (racing) more, but that's a
thing of the past. All that up-close
stuff and nobody able to pass With-
out a partner is crazy.
Now we're going to have new
bodies to go with the gear rule and
the motor rule and just on and on,
and I don't know why the car makers
don't step in. If they took a stand on
it, they could change a lot of stuff.

Paul D. Gammon ,,
Anderson, Ind.

NASCAR officials and the
manufacturers are often at cross
purposes. NASCAR wants the 'cars to
be equal, while manufacturers look
for a competitive edge.
The differences between the body
shape of a Chevrolet, a Ford and a
Dodge are relatively minute today.
That troubles many longtime fans, but
in general, the sport continues to
grow. We appreciate you letting us
know how you feel.

Venice man twice survived





Auschwitz's gas chambers


This is part one of a
two-part series.

BY DON MOORE
SENIOR WRITER

The faded, blue tattooed
numbers on the old man's left
forearm bear witness to the
hell on earth he endured as a
young man during World War
II.
William Schick of Venice
survived two years in Ausch-
witz, the infamous German
death camp, where more
than 1.5 million prisoners
were killed in gas chambers
or died from starvation, dis-
ease or mistreatment by
guards before they reached
the ovens.
Schick, his brother, Zoltan,
and their mother, Maria, were
all in the death camp together
at one point. His father,
Leopold, was shot in the back
and killed by German soldiers
while trying to escape as he
was taken to Auschwitz.
The Holocaust Memorial
Museum inWashington, D.C.,
confirmed that William
Schick was serial number
170938.
Schick went to Auschwitz
in 1941 aboard a cattle car
with 3,000 other Czechoslo-
vakian Jews, museum officials
said.
Prior to Auschwitz, he was
in Terezin, a camp in Czech-
oslovakia used by Germans as
a "show camp." This was a
camp the Nazis used to show
the world how nice their
camps were.
"We arrived at Auschwitz
in the evening. When they
opened the door of our cattle
car, there were German sol-
diers with guns and German
shepherd dogs. Prisoners in
blue and white striped uni-
forms, who worked for the
Germans, called'Capos,' were
also waiting for us. They beat
the hell out of us with sticks
they carried.
'Get out of the cars, faster,
faster!' they screamed. We
were crammed in the cars like
sardines. Some people died
on the trip and many of the
old people fell on their faces
trying to get out of the cars."
Schick recalls the bedlam
more than 60 years later.
"We had no idea where we
were. All the Germans told us
when they put us on the cattle
cars in Terezin was, We were


going east on a work detail,"
he said. "We got off and were
standing outside the cattle
cars bathed in floodlights
with people screaming at us."
The prisoners were made
to stand in two lines: Men in
one line and women in the
other. They were forced to
take off their clothes. Their
bodies were shaved of all hair
as they stood there under
floodlights in the cold night
air. They were given blue and
white striped uniforms like
the other prisoners at Ausch-
witz and wooden clogs for
their feet.
"Then all 3,000 of us were
marched to Camp B2B. It was
the only camp in Auschwitz
where women, children and
men were together," Schick
said. "There were over 40 sub-
camps in Auschwitz like this
and each one was surround-
ed by barbed wire. There were
Russian prisoners in one
camp, Gypsies in another,
communists in a third and so
on camp after camp, some
100,000 prisoners in all at any
one time at Auschwitz, all
scheduled for death."
The Nazi secret police,
who guarded the death camp,
had the extermination of pris-
oners down to a science. If
diey didn't starve a person to
death in 90 days on a diet of
mostly bread and water, those
who were still living were sent
to the gas chamber.
Each prisoner at Auschwitz
had a colored triangle on the
front of his striped uniform
denoting his status in the
camp: Jews had yellow trian-
gles, gays wore pink triangles,
political prisoners wore green
triangles and criminals had
black triangles.
The German commander
of Camp B2B was a prisoner
himself. He wore a black tri-
angle on the front of his uni-
form. He murdered someone
in Germany before the war.
"He was very, very nice to
the prisoners," Schick said.
"He never beat anyone in his
camp and after the war a
number of his former prison-
ers spoke up for him and told
authorities how, he protected
them. Eventually he was hon-
ored by Israel as a 'Righteous
Gentile' who helped Jews in
their time of need.
"He came into our camp
one day and asked if any of us
played soccer. I was a soccer

player," Schick said. "I raised
my hand because I had been
part of a semi-pro soccer
team in Prague before the
war."
He formed a soccer team
in B2B. The team played
another soccer team from
one of the other camps in
Auschwitz.
"After we won the match
he gave each one of the mem-
bers of our team a 6-inch
piece of salami," Schick
recalled with a smile. "We had,
to be careful with the salami.
If you ate all of it at one time
you could die. Our stomachs
were not use to such rich
food.
'"He was a good guy,"
Schick said.
Mostly, however, life in
Auschwitz was awful. Pris-
oners were there for one rea-

HOLOCAUST
MEMORIAL DAY
Holocaust Memorial Day is
Jan. 27 each year and is cele-
brated in some countries con-
quered by the Germans dur-
ing World War II. It's the day
American forces liberated the
Nazi death camp at
Auschwitz, Poland, 60 years
ago on Jan. 27, 1945.


into Czechoslovakia and took
over the country. Until then
he had grown up in Prague in
a nice, middle-class Jewish
family. Within 90 days after
the Germans arrived, Jews
could not go outside without
wearing a yellow Star of David
displayed prominently on
their clothes.
At the time, Schick's father
was a sales representative for
a large textile company head-
quartered in Prague. He


toured Europe selling his
cloth. Schick was 19, his
younger brother was 16, and
their mom was in her early
40s.
Things started going
downhill in 1939 when their
family was ordered by the
Germans to report to an
office in Prague to receive an
identification number.
Schick's number was .508. A
week later the Germans
began calling numbers.
He was ordered to report to
a train and was sent to Ter-
ezin, Czechoslovakia. This
was the camp Germany used
to show the world how
humane it was to its concen-
tration camp prisoners.
He was among the first
1,000 people to arrive at the
concentration camp. Their
job was to get the camp ready
for thousands of prisoners
who were on their way.
Eventually his brother and
mother arrived at the camp.


"Conditions at Terezin
were very bad compared to
life at home. However, com-
pared to Auschwitz the camp
was nice," he said. "There was
no gas chamber and people
at Terezin died from starva-
tion or old age."
He got a prime job because
he arrived early. Schick
became a cook in the camp,
but the job was his undoing
two years later.
"A Jewish guard (working
for the Germans) caught me
with a potato. I got so mad at
him I beat him up," he said.
"That was a mistake because
the guard turned me over to
the Germans who ran Ter-
ezin. I was sent to Auschwitz
in 1941."
Life at Auschwitz began
early when every prisoner
automatically fell into forma-
tion outside their barracks.
"We had to get up at 5 a.m.

FEATURES EDITOR
A major waterfront home
has come on the market for
the first time on sheltered
deep water Forked Creek in
Englewood. It will be show-
cased Sunday, Jan. 29, 1-4,
with a display of original work
by horticultural artist Sandi
Olsen of Englewood.
In addition to a historic
original roundhouse, which
was added to in 1986 to create
a 3,800-square-foot four-bed-
room, three-and-one-half-
bath home, there is a new
seawall cap, a covered boat
dock and more than enough
roonmto tie up a large trawler.
listing Realtor Tony Huff said
the neighbors have a 40-foot
Grand Banks boat at their
dock next door.
Boaters especially will enjoy
the view of the Intracoastal
Waterway, which offers no
fixed bridge access to the ICW
and the Gulf of Mexico.
Recently updated, in addi-
tion to the new 213-foot-long
seawall cap, the house has a
new roof, new air-condition-
ing system in the round
house and a new drainfield
for the home's septic system.
The heavily wooded prop-
erty contains several mature
live oaks, tropical landscap-
ing and a wide lawn from the

A hand-painted mural on

seems even larger because of
its cathedral ceiling. Nearly as
spacious are the 15-foot by
17-foot living room and the
16-foot by 18-foot family
room. Together, these three
rooms offer an abundance of
space for entertaining as well
as for the everyday life of a
large family.

Q: I'm 16 and want to start
using birth control pills, in case I
become sexually active. My
mom wants me to wait. She says
there is some kind of health
problem associated with them.
Is this true? W.T., New York
City
A. Your mom is right and I
agree with her. This is a huge
decision and you should wait
until you are completely sure
about becoming sexually
active. Don't start the pill just
because you're thinking about
it. In fact, the pill may not be
the right choice for you at
all. Hear me out.
The fewer years that you
take estrogen drugs such as
birth control, the less risk you
have for many dreadful dis-
eases. Considerations before
taking the pill or the patch,
or injections include, but
are not limited to, blood clots,


stroke, heart attack, gallblad-
der disease, depression, liver
tumors, breast cancer, cervi-
cal cancer and endometrial
cancer. If you have a genetic
predisposition, smoke ciga-,
rettes or have any prior his-
tory of these conditions, your
risks increase dramatically.
I'm not trying to scare you,
but you've asked my opinion
and I suggest that you hold
off on powerful drugs until
you are sure that you want
to become sexually active ...
and sure that the guy is
worth risking your health
for in the long run. Speak to
your gynecologist or a
planned-parenthood asso-
ciate to learn about other
options for preventing preg-
nancy. There are more avail-
able than just the pill, which,
by the way, offers no protec-
tion against sexually trans-
mitted diseases.
Q: I just got a prescription for
Floriase for my hay fever aller-
gies. Can you tell me how to use
it? K.S., Hollywood, Fla.
A: Flonase is a steroid that
comes in a nasal spray, which
you squirt into your nose ech
day. The drug, fluticasone,
reduces inflammation and
eases symptoms of an itchy,
runny nose, sneezing and,
stuffy sinuses.
The first thing you should

do is gently blow your nose
to clear your nostrils com-
pletely. Shake the bottle of
medicine gently before using.
Place the tip of the spray
bottle a quarter to half an
inch into your nose. You'll
want to remain still and hold
the bottle steady so that it is
aimed toward the back of the
nose. Close your other nostril
with a finger and rapidly
press down on the pump
trigger once. Repeat the
process for the other nostril.
The first time you use a
nasal spray, it feels weird, but
there is no pain. Sometimes
a slight burning or stinging
sensation occurs immediate-
ly afterward. Wipe the spray
tip with a clean, soft tissue or
cloth. If the sprayer nozzle
gets clogged up, unscrew it
from the bottle and soak it in
warm water, then squirt sev-
eral times while holding it
under water. Don't stick any
needles or pointed objects
into the nozzle.

relieve extremely dry, scaly
hands or elbows by rubbing
coconut oil on them twice a
day as a deep moisturizer.

STAFF REPORT
Sarasota County Parks and

against diabetes by sponsor-
ing the local Tour de Cure,
the American Diabetes Asso-
ciation's annual cycling event.
Proceeds from various Tour
de Cure events around the
nation raise money for re-
search to find a cure for dia-
betes, the nation's fifth lead-
ing cause of death by disease.
"We're proud to be a part
of this momentous national
event. Our contribution to
the Tour de Cure will help
provide needed revenue for
research, public information
and support programs that
are essential to all people
with diabetes," said Jonathan

Parks and Recreation.
At 8 a.m., Sunday, Feb.
26, the 20K, 50K and 100K
races start at the north en-
trance to Myakka Stite Park.
The routes will be on back
roads in the areas around
the park and beyond. About
250 cyclists are expected to
ride in this one-day event.
The goal of Tour de Cure
in Sarasota County is to raise
$75,000 to support research
for a cure for diabetes, which
affects more than 1 million
Floridians each year. Sara-
sota cyclists will join an esti-
mated 26,000 other riders

REV. SUSANNE NAZIAN



We minister-types seem to
be forever talking about the
fragility of something life,
beauty, the planet on which
we live, Our valuing is tied up
with that fragility. Steward-
ship of the earth and its
resources, preservation of the
beauty of the natural world
and the humanly created
beauty of music, literature
and art combine with the
sanctity of human life ,as the
values most human beings
hold in common.
Those values are religious
expressions, coming from the
deepest recesses of the
human spirit. Another way to
speak of valuing the sanctity
of life is to speak of love -
love of neighbor, love of fami-
ly, love of a supreme being -
loving that is mutual, mutual-
ly rewarding and mutually
empowering. It is to speak of
justice, mercy and equality,


forgiveness and acceptance.
Some of the most pro-
found expressions of the reli-
gious impulse are found in
both the natural world and in
the beauty created by hu-
manity. Poets, philosophers
and religious human beings
extol the beauty and grace of
nature. Nature moves poets
like Annie Dillard and Loren
Eiseley to create word por-
traits of that which inspires
and deepens the human spir-
it. Thoughts of the vastness
and intricacy of the larger
universe move scientists to
speak in near-religious terms
of its grandeur.
Yet, in each life, we are con-
stantly reminded of the fra-
gility, the preciousness of life
and beauty. Religious educa-
tion pioneer Dr. Sophia Lyon
Fahs once said that the
crushed form of the turtle in
the road, when beheld by a
three-year-old, was the be-
ginning of his or her religious
journey. So, too are our expe-
riences of loss, injury, trauma
and even death all religious
experiences. Experiences of
beauty, goodness and truth
are not the only sources of
religious growth. Often, we
are as moved to deepen our
religious understanding by
the experience of loss as by
that which inspires wonder
and awe.
As a minister, I'm remind-


ed almost daily of the fragility
of the human body, and of life
itself. It is one of life's great
tragedies when we lose a
loved one, yet that loss has a
way of connecting us with all
those who have lost before us
or will lose after us. It has a
way of making us keenly
aware of the love that cannot
be destroyed even by death.
Similarly, though to a lesser
degree, we grieve for physical
loss-conditions like arthritis,
cancer and heart disease rob
people of their abilities. Other
physical losses are more
immediate and sometimes
more temporary. What's got
me reflecting on this is a
mishap-an accident in
which my ankle was broken.
Most of us have or will be a
victim of such a "whoops."
Some of us need to think God
is at fault, and then spend
hours (or years) in working on
why our God would send suf-
fering. It's a similar question
to why God might allow great
art, the beautiful natural
landscape or the words of a
poet to be destroyed. What
that seems to do is to charge
God with the micro responsi-
bilities that God has left in
human care. I don't blame
God for my accident, but the
ordinary clumsiness and lack
of care with which I picked up

NAZIAN fromPage 6B
a chair to move it across the
room. The chair and my left
foot went one way; my right
ankle went the other.
The religious message here
is not about who's at fault, but
about what is happening to
me in this particular situa-
tion. For one, it's slowed me
down and given, me time to
ponder. For another, it's
shown me once again the
enormous capacity for caring
f


in other human beings. It's
demonstrated the greatest
religious truth: we are never
alone. The grace of life is here
in suffering as much as it is in
the miracle and mystery of
this universe, this fragile plan-
et and the teeming life that
lives on it.

Rev. Susanne Nazian is
minister of the Unitarian
Universalist Congregation of
Venice. She can be reached at

ELLEN HILLSTROM
COLUMNIST

Ever since the approval of
the South Venice Community
Plan in 2003, a group of resi-
dents in South Venice has
been meeting on a monthly
basis to assist county code
enforcement officers in code
compliance, the No. 1 priority
in the plan.
The voluntary committee
is focused on informing resi-
dents about the kinds of code
violations that hurt our ap-
pearance and devalue our
properties. Recently, the com-
mittee received another 200
copies of the Homeowner's
Guide to County Code Com-
pliance. A copy may be picked
up at the SVCA office.
This year a new computer
system called 'Amanda" has
been installed at the South
County Administration Cen-
ter. It enables the code officers
to track complaints while in
the neighborhoods and be
able to respond more quickly
and compile reports more
efficiently.
Bill Johnson is the new
code enforcement officer for
our subdivision and has
expressed his enthusiasm for


working with the committee
to help residents understand
the zoning laws.,
Potluck supper. What
started out last year as a one-
time event has turned into a
regular get-together of SVCA
members and guests.
Tomorrow, Saturday, Jan.
28 from 6 to 9 p.m., we will be
enjoying another potluck
supper at our community
center, 720 Alligator Drive. If
you live in our subdivision, let
me take this opportunity to
invite you to join us.
It is free of charge; just
bring your favorite dish to
share, whether it be a salad,
bread, hot or cold servings, or
dessert. Plates, silverware and
soft drinks will be provided.
BYOB if you wish. We will
have drawings and prizes as
well.
Board retreat. This is a
program planning meeting
that I think almost every non-
profit organization goes
through. Ours will be held
Sunday at the community hall
of the new Habitat for Hu-
manity- office on Alligator
Drive. Most retreats are held
off site, but the board didn't
want to go too far away from
home. Luncheon will be pro-
vided by Catering by the Java
Family.
Decisions will be made on
what priority issues and activ-
ities the association will
address in 2006.

hospital in Englewood is ben-

future area residents and eco-

. She said having the hospi-

Englewood citizens, many of
whom are elderly or retired.
The hospital, home to
some 365 employees, 200 act-

cians, has captured several
awards in recent years.
The Solucient Institute; an
Evanston, Ill.-based compa-
ny, placed the Englewood
hospital on its 2001 100 Top
Hospitals list, an annual
study of more than 5,600 gen-
eral acute-care hospitals.
Englewood Community
Hospital was the only hospi-
tal in either Charlotte or
Sarasota county to achieve
such recognition.

en boats, preserved and inter-
preted maritime history and

en boat exhibitions. The pro-
ceeds of the sale of maritime
gear will help support those

cludes the Lizzie G, a 23-foot
sailing sharpie launched in
2000 that has garnered sever-
al awards for authenticity.

BY CHRIS HEWITr
GUEST WRITER-


When Albert Brooks goes
"Looking for Comedy in the
Muslim World," he looks not
in the Middle East but in
India. That's not exactly an
uproarious joke, but it is
amusing and it hints at the
movie's attempt to get at the
; United States' unwillingness
to see the wofld'as anything
but U.S.-centric.
Most of this wry film's
laughs come from earnest
people wrongheadedly trying
to do the right thing. Brooks
is sent to India by the United
States, which has stumbled
on the not-bad idea that, as
former Sen. Fred Dalton


Annapolis
Annapolis is the story about a young
man (James Franco) who comes from
the wrong side of the tracks. Using his
boxing skills, he makes his dream of
attending the U.S. Naval Academy at
Annapolis a reality. He eventually falls for
an upperclassman (Jordana Brewster)
who helps him train in the ring, a viola-
tion of academic policy that could jeop-
ardize his dream. 1 hr. 48 mins.

End of the Spear
Mincayani, a tribesman in the
Ecuadorean rain forest, lives by a violent
code: kill or be killed. His world changes


Thompson (also playing
sorta-himself) tells Brooks,
"The only way to really
understand somebody is to
see what makes them laugh."
The overriding joke in
"Looking" is that Brooks is
too self-centered to figure out
what amuses anybody who
does not inhabit his own
body. His mission is doomed
not because i India iss the
wrong place (while the coun-
try does have a substantial
Muslim population, it's not
generally known as Muslim
HQ), but because Brooks'
only research is to perform
his regular act, with a couple
of Gandhi puns added in a
lame attempt to curry favor
with Indian audiences.

missionaries. Following the massacre,
Mincayani and his family abandon vio-

So, when he performs a
conceptual bit that hinges
on an improve comedian's
unwillingness to follow his
audiences' suggestions, he
assumes the audience didn't
get what he was trying to do.
We, on the other hand, know
the audience did get. it and
didn't think it was funny.
If all of this sounds like
cerebral'nomedy, itis. Br6ools
is not above"goirig-fot -thle ...
occasional cheap laugh. -
thankfully but he's not a
comic who begs us to love
him. If most comedians'
jokes are like the M&Ms
resting on top of a cookie,
his are more like the cinna-
mon that subtly flavors the
dough.


the public, Murrow, and his dedicated
staff headed by his producer Fred
Friendly and Joe Wershba in the CBS
newsroom defy corporate and sponsor-
ship pressures to examine the lies and
scaremongering tactics perpetrated by
McCarthy during his communist'witch-
hunts' A very public feud develops when
the Senator responds by accusing the
anchor of being a communist In this
climate of fear and reprisal, the CBS
crew carries on and their tenacity will
prove historic and monumental.

ty must mean that she is incredibly

His attitude seems to be,
,"Look, I have hidden a few
jokes in here. Notice them if
you want." And, because
"Looking" has the additional
oddity of a creator who is
playing himself as a hacky
goof, it takes awhile to get in
the swing of the film.

member that this hacky

sentative of the United States

land where the only thing he
learns is that he looks awful

ARIES (March 21-April
19). Love is your
motive for both your
most reasonable and your
most insane actions. Just
remember that love is putting
the other person's needs
before your own, and all
is well.

STAURUS (April 20-May
20). When you apply
criticism well, you are
a star.-Your work is a thousand
times better than it was when
you began. Pat yourself on the
back, or wait for others to do it
- either way, back pats are
forthcoming.

GEMINI (May 21-June
21). You sound
groovy singing with
the radio and will consider
quitting your day job. Artistic
success is achieved through
discipline and dedication, and
you have both. The stars say
you must explore your talent!

SCANCER (June 22-July
22). Your "tribal iden-
tity" and your
"authentic self" are at times far
apart but not today.
Congruence is working for you.
You gain momentum on a
personal goal and are gener-
ally very attractive to people
who want to help you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).
/ More tender, loving
care would be good
for you. Make sure to spend
time with the one who gives
this so well. Stay away from
people who judge and also
tend to bring out your
judgmental side.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22). A stranger may
have a better sense of
who you are than your family
members do. Listen to an
objective observer instead of
a relative whose perception is
frozen in the past.
P 6 .


Y/ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
23). Recently, your
sit-com life has lost its
laugh track. Lighten up, and
don't take events so seriously
- there'll be another episode
next week. Tonight, it's all
about simplicity and brevity -
how elegant.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-
Nov. 21). Guilt is an
effective tool in the
hands of a manipulative loved
one. Don't be tricked into tak-
ing responsibility for someone
else's problems. Tonight, you
are lucky in games of chance.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21). Habit can
be comforting. It can
also keep you from experienc-
ing. new places, ideas and
people. Break with routine, and
make different plans. It's better
to wear out than to rust.

SCAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19). Something
big is being born into
your life. You sense it, like
animals sense when an earth-
quake is coming. Regarding
love: Today's has-been is
tomorrow's hot number. Don't
write off that long-lost ex.

SAQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18). You make
agreements you
know you can keep and also
agreements you're not sure
you can keep. The former is
good for you, and the latter
serves to push you to your
peak performance and
productivity.

\ PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20). Your hunger for
connection can be
fed in all kinds of ways a
long loving look, a fun
conversation, a hand clenched
tightly in your own. The
planets make you aware of
how love is showing up in
your world.

Syriana
From writer/director Stephen

against the intrigue of the global oil
industry. From the players brokering
back-room deals in Washington to the
men toiling in the oil fields of the
Persian Gulf, the film's multiple story-
lines weave together to illuminate the
human consequences of the fierce
pursuit of wealth and power. As a
career CIA operative (George Clooney)
begins to uncover the disturbing truth
about the work he has devoted his life
to, an up-and-coming oil broker (Matt
Damon) faces an unimaginable family
tragedy and finds redemption in his
partnership with an idealistic Gulf
prince (Alexander Siddig). A corporate
lawyer (Jeffrey Wright) faces a moral
dilemma as he finesses the question-
able merger of two powerful U.S. oil


companies, while across the globe, a
disenfranchised Pakistani teenager
(Mazhar Munir) falls prey to the
recruiting efforts of a charismatic cler-
ic. Each plays their small part in the
vast and complex system that powers
the industry, unaware of the explosive
impact their lives will have upon the

SURVIVED iF
and go outside in nothing but
those blue and white striped
cotton uniforms, no matter
how cold the weather. We
might stand there for an hour
and a half in the freezing cold
until a German soldier came
out to count us," Schick said.
"Prisoners who had died dur-
ing the night, we had to drag
out of the barracks and put on
the ground in line with us so
they could be counted. We
were counted to make sure no
one had escaped."
After the counting they
went back to their barracks,
where they got their first meal
of the day.
"It was a slice of brown
bread and some black water
that was suppose to be cof-
fee," he said. "I don't know
what it was, but it was warm
so I drank it."
It was bread and water for
lunch and more bread and
water for dinner.. Very infre-
quently they would receive
one thin slice of salami with
their bread.
The prisoners were not
required to work at Ausch-
witz. Prisoners were brought
there to die of starvation or be
put in the gas chambers.
However, the guards amused
themselves by having the
male prisoners carry boul-
ders.
"The men would have to
carry rocks from one end of
the camp to the other for two
or three hours a day. If the
stone you were carrying was-
n't big enough the guards
would beat you with their rifle
butts," Schick said.
After three months at
Auschwitz, a prisoner's time
was up.
"They told everyone in
Camp B2B we were going to
be sent to Germany as slave
laborers, but we had to clean
up and shower first and we'd
be issued new uniforms," he
-7said. "When we reached what
the guards said were the
'showers' there was a commo-
tion going on. I could speak a
little German and I heard the
guards say something was
'kaput.'"
He learned later the appa-
ratus that filled the showers
with poison gas was 'kaput.'
The prisoners from B2B had
,escaped death,. They were
'marched back to their bar-
racks. Three days later they
were marched backito the gas
chambers to die.
"We were just about to go
into the gas chambers once
rnore and there was another
'commotion out front.
"A train with 10,000 Jews
from Hungary had just
arrived. They had no place to
put them. We were sent back
to our barracks once again.
-.They marched all 10,000
Hungarian Jews into the three
",gas chambers at Auschwitz
,:and killed them all in 24
hours."
