Venice Police Officer Nathan King directs traffic at the intersection of Bahama Street and Miami
Avenue. The comer becomes a major traffic jam when parents drop off or pick up students at
Venice Elementary School.



Nightmare on Miami Avenue


Parents and other commuters are finding the new
Venice Elementary School traffic pattern still
leaves a lot to be desired.


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

Florida traffic engineers
are known for their ability and
skill at moving traffic through
towns or around buildings -
on paper.
As those designs play out
in the real world, however, it
often seems their motto is,
"Let's build it, then figure out
how move the people" rather
than "Let's make sure we can
move the people before we
build it."
And the confusion they
have created at the new
Venice Elementary School on
Bahama Street is a prime.

people responsible for keep-
ing traffic moving.
"About 8:30 a.m. and 2:30
p.m. it gets pretty bad on
Miami (Avenue) with the par-
ents stacked up dropping
them off and picking them
up," Venice Police Traffic En-
forcement Officer* Robert
Gtodson said.
Scores of cars lihe up wait-'
ing to enter the school prop-
erty off Miami, causing a back
up all the way to U.S. 41
Business. That means prob-
lems for businesses on Miami
east of U.S. 41, and motorists.
"We have an officer out
here every day directing peo-
ple going east on Miami
toward the Gondolier to turn


right at Bahama, then turn
around somewhere and
come back toward Miami and
turn right," Goodson said.
He said that when officers
are directing traffic, people
settle in and obey them. But
when the officers leave, the
nightmare starts up again.
Drivers who have no
school business but are going
to other businesses on Miami
like Babe's Hardware, get nuts
when the traffic stacks up into
the school, police said.
"As long as they do not
block the intersections (O.S.
41/Miami or Miami/Baha-
ma) we can't cite them," he
said. "They're not disobeying
any law, just waiting in line."
You may think all that
sounds pretty confusing.
Well, it is.

With more than 120 appli-
cations to choose from, one
would expect to have plenty
of quality choices.
City Manager Marry Black
believes that is exactly what
Venice got as he identified the
six candidates vying to re-


place the retiring Jim Hanks
as the city's top cop.
None of the candidates is
from a local or neighboring
law enforcement depart-
ment. Tw o of the six are wom-
en, and four are retired. One
of the candidates retired to
Sarasota before applying.
The next step in the appli-
cation process will be Feb. 21 -
22 when each candidate in-
terviews with city council
members, tours the police
department and takes a test.

Did this man wash his hands? Thoughtlessness and lack of respect for others can lead
to the spread of germs and sickness in the workplace,.according to health profession-
als.



Are co-workers




making you sick?


Germs fly around the office like water-cooler
gossip, with potentially serious conse-


quences for your health

BYTOMMYMCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

It is probably easier to
count the people you know
who are not sick than the
ones who are.
"It's not an epidemic in
the true sense of the word,
but what we are seeing is
many more people coming
up with respiratory prob-
lems this time of year,"
Sarasota County Health
Department spokeswom-
an Diane Shipley said. "It's
a seasonal type of influen-
za."
Shipley said the peak of
the season in Florida is
February.
"It's still not too late to
get a flu shot," Shipley said.
She said the weather
change brings with it more
respiratory illness.
Even doctors are not
sure why it is taking people
longer to shake the bug
this year. Some who have it
have had it for at least two
months.
The flu season generally
lasts from October through
March or April.
Besides airborne illness
like the flu, there is another
way to get sick.
Just show up for work.


What's in your
workplace?
Germs, germs and more
germs more than
enough to make you sick,
according to health profes-
sionals. Airborne and
food-borne illness lurk in
the dark recesses of your
work station and office.
Indeed, the entire work-
place can be a pretty dirty
place, according to Wanda
Dillberg, manager of.
Employee Health Services
at Provena Saint Joseph
Medical Center in Toliet, Ill.
Many cleaning people
are uncomfortable about
getting too close to other
people's personal items,
including moving them
around to the extent that a
proper cleaning job re-
quires.
Additionally, many peo-
ple eat and drink at their
desks. That means the
workstation can be a
breeding ground for germs
that can be spread
throughout the entire
office, Dillberg said.
Watch those
doughnuts
A coworker brings in a
huge box of assorted


doughnuts to share with all
employees, including the
boss.
Nice touch, maybe even
a good career move, but
the sinkers also may be
breeding grounds for food-
borne illnesses.
Just one employee with
a cold going through the
selections can mean trou-
ble.
Same thing with a large
jar full of popcorn or pret-
zels, a temptation that is
difficult to resist.
One thoughtless person
who does not show others
the common courtesy of
washing his or her hands
can contaminate the
whole jar and workplace
by reaching in and grab-
bing a handful. Then they
add insult to injury by
stuffing the popcorn into
their mouths before going
back for seconds.
Stay home
The smartest thing to do
if you're sick, said Dr. Jose
Bolanos, infectious disease
specialist at Southwest
Infectious Disease Associ-
ares in Joliet, is to stay
home.
"People don't always
want to use their sick days
when they're sick," said
Bolanos. "Obviously, if
people are given a certain

THIS WEEK IN VENICE HISTORY


Zoning code defended

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


STAFF REPORT

Sarasota County Planning
Commissioner Lois C. Jones
has taken issue with a story
appearing in the Jan. 13 issues
of the Gondolier.
The story related that
many area residents are up-
set with the proposed Sara-
sota County zoning code.
In a letter to the Gondolier,
Mrs. Jones refers to a portion
of the story relating to the
agricultural property.
The story contended that
farm owners in Venice Farms
area would be able to keep
horses, but no livestock.
Mrs. Jones said this is no
longer the case. "The facts are
that the text submitted by the
consultant over three years
ago did limit kinds and num-


bers of animals," she said.
"There is now no restrictions
as to the number of livestock,
poultry, goats, swine, or sheep
in the code."
When the Gondolier
when to press on Jan. 10, the
original code was still being
circulated to the area prop-
erty owners. Although it had
been reported to residents
that the code had been
modified, no copies of that
revisionwere made available.
Farm Association Presi-
dent Glen Nelson attempted
to get a copy of the new
code, but was told they were
not available. Former asso-
ciation director Louis Koplau
was told the copies would
be available the day of that
area's hearing (Jan. 20).

did finally get a copy, but not
until most residents had
decided against the new
code. The new code did allow
agricultural uses much the
same as they are permitted
now.
The Venice Farms Associ-
ation objected to the fact that
property owners had not
been notified of the change
in the code, but were provid-
ed erroneous information.
Mrs. Jones also took issue
with a paragraph on non-
conforming property uses.
The article said that in
some cases businesses which
already exist would not be

permitted to expand their
facilities.
Mrs. Jones admits that, in
the original code, noncon-
forming uses would have to
be discontinued. "This para-
graph has been deleted," she
said.
"Nonconforming uses of
an existing business on the
proposed atlas are very rare.
The existing buildings may
continue but the structure
may not be enlarged," she
explained.
Finn Caspersen, who
wrote the first zoning code
for Venice, pointed out that

Usually, the hiss of white

Mrs. T.B. can't stand the

State agency to support North Port hospital


BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER
In a surprise move, the
state agency that is to decide
whether North Port will get a
hospital has officially stated it
is backing North Port HMA's
application for a facility.
In papers filed by Timothy
Elliot, senior attorney of the
Agency for Health Care Ad-
ministration in Tallahassee,
the agency said it is support-
ing, in its entirety, the excep-
tions filed by North Port HMA
Inc. to a recommended order
denying it a certificate of
need.
"The agency's Notice of
Joinder acknowledges that we
agree with HMA's exceptions,
and have decided to file them
jointly," said AHCA spokes-
person Toby Philpot.
However, in a prior inter-
view, Philpot said the agency
does not get involved with fil-
ing exceptions.
AHCA will now decide
whether to overturn the rec-
ommended order of Division
of Administrative Hearings
Judge T. Kent Wetherell II,
and allow North Port to get a
certificate of need for a hos-
pital.
The deadline for filing
exceptions and responses
with AHCA is Jan. 27.
The agency clerk will now
review the exceptions using
the. guidelines defined in the
Florida statues, Philpot said.
"He drafts a final order that
rules on each exception filed,
applying the strict standard in
(chapter) 120, which goes to
the agency head," Philpot
said. "Only the agency head
(AHCA Secretary Alan Levine)
can sign a final order."
Wetherell ruled in Decem-
ber 2005 that population fig-
ures did not justify a hospital
in North Port. He also ruled
that AHCA had identified ndo
need for beds in the area,
which includes North Port.
Disagreeing
Health Management Asso-
ciates and HCA filed excep-
tions to Wetherell's decision,
challenging some of the facts
he used in his decision.
Geoffrey Smith, attorney
for HMA, claimed that Weth-
erell erred in his conclusion
of law that decision no new
hospital was needed in North
Port.
Smith said Wetherell has
to consider other reasons be-
sides numerical need to de-
cide the need for a hospital.
"The findings of facts as
determined by (Wetherell) are


not being challenged," Smith
said. "The conclusion of law
reached (is being) challenged
as not reasonable in light of
the very facts established by
Judge Wetherell's order."
Smith listed 25 facts Weth-
erell established, but did not
consider in his recommend-
ed order.
Some that have an affect
on immediate health and
welfare of the residents are:
No 24/7 urgent care
center in the city.
Patients who go to the
North Port Health Park, an
outpatient center owned by
HMA, often need an ambu-
lance to take them outside
the city to a hospitals.
More than 1,400 patients
from North Port are trans-
ported outside the city and
county.
The city's emergency
management system is
strained, and an ambulance
is out of service for an aver-
age of 86 minutes each time
it takes a patient to a hospital.
Smith also said that ap-
proving a hospital in North
Port would not affect existing
hospitals enough to warrant
denial of the certificate of
need.
'Although the administra-
tive law judge (Wetherell)
concludes that such factors
do not support a new hospi-
tal, this is clearly a-conclusion
of law, which the agency
may reject and substitute its
own more reasonable inter-


pretation," Smith said.
Improper analysis
HCA, which owns Fawcett
Memorial and Englewood
Community hospitals, filed
exceptions even though
Wetherell ruled in its favor.
HCA is claiming Wetherell
made a conclusion, rather
than a finding of facts, about
the impact of future growth
of North Port and the sur-
rounding areas.
Robert Newell, attorney
for HCA, said Wetherell's con-
sideration of future growth
to offset lost patient volume
in other areas from building
a new hospital in North Port,
is wrong and inconsistent
with prior agency decisions.
"Judge Wetherell appears
to have ignored the over-
whelming evidence of the
proper impact analysis,"
Newell wrote.
He said Wetherell ruled
that Fawcett and Englewood
would get a "smaller piece of
the pie" with a new hospital.
Wetherell also said they
would suffer less because
the part of "pie" (population)
they will receive in the future
will be greater from other
areas.
Newell stated Gene Nel-
son, an independent health
planning expert and former
chief of the certificate of
need program, testified that
HCA's expert witness's im-
pact method was correct in
deciding adverse impacts on

With more than 4,000 new homes in North Port last year, the city continues to grow numerically
and geographically. That growth is the basis for the city's efforts to get a hospital project
approved.


existing hospitals.
North Port hired Nelson
in 2003 to do a study on
whether a hospital was need-'
ed. In his report, Nelson stat-
ed, "Despite lack of bed need,
existing hospitals could claim
that a hospital in North Port
would adversely impact
them."
Newell also said Wetherell


did not use proper methods
to calculate revenue loss if
North Port were allowed to
build its own hospital. New-
ell said after the second year,
North Port's hospital would
turn Fawcett's net profit of
about $1.3 million into a
loss of about $1.9 million.
Englewood's profit of about
$705,000 would become a


loss of about $102,000.
'Adverse financial losses
are, as a matter of law and
agency policy, factors which
weigh heavily against ap-
proval of a new hospital,"
Newell said.

Officials sa, use state su-rpl~us for, roads'


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Money, money everywhere
and not a dime to spend- on
key road programs.
This is the impression local
officials have about a series of
decisions made by the state
during the past few months.
They are also looking for
help and see the state's bud-
get surplus as a logical place
to get relief.
To get
their point
across, a ser-
ies of letters
has been
drafted to
Gov. Jeb
Bush, key
state legisla-
tors, thePatterson
areas legisla-Patterson
tive delega-
tion'and the Florida Depart-,
ment of' Tansportation.
The crux of the problem is
the recent gutting of FDOT's
so-called "tentative five-year
work program."


Sarasota County was told
in late November it would
lose funding for about $120
million worth of projects
off that program. Counties
across the state lost varying
amounts of money.
Among the key projects los-
ing or having delays in fund-
ing are the planned widening
of the U.S. 41 Bypass inVenice
and U.S. 301 at the Manatee
County line.
Among the letters being
sent from the area is one from
the Sarasota-Manatee Metro-
politan Planning Organiza-
tion.
Board members agreed
during their Jan. 23 meeting
to send the letter and sug-
gested using some, or all, of
the estimated $2.5 billion in,
surplus revenue to restore
the work program money.
The balance should be used
to deal with the growing
transportation needs in Flor-
ida, they suggested.
FDOT District Secretary
Stanley Cann said the cuts in
the work program projects


were due to unexpected cost
increases in engineering,
right-of-way purchases, con-
struction costs and labor.
FDOT's annual budget for
repairing old roads and
.building new ones is nearly
$12 billion.
Because of
rising costs for
construction,
repairs and
rights of way,
nearly $1 bil- .
lion worth of
projects has
been removed
from the five- Thaxton
year future
work program across the
state, Cann said.
Reverse logic
Palmetto Mayor Larry
Bustle, the new MPO chair,
said cutting money from key
projects because of higher
costs does not make sense.,
"By extending the time to
do these projects, the dosts
are going to be more. Where is
the logic in that?" Bustle said.


The Legislature is contem-
plating how to spend the
excess cash and is consider-
ing various sales-tax holidays
as a way to give some of the
money back.
One plan would use an
estimated $500 million of
the surplus by allowing con-
sumers to avoid the sales tax
on the first $5,000 of any pur-
chases from July 31
to Aug. 6.
The top saving to a con-
sumer during the tax holiday
would be $300 on $5,000
worth of goods at the 6-per-
cent state sales tax rate.
Sarasota County Commis-
sion Chair David Mills said
he did not understand the
logic behind such a "tax
break."
"The big thing in Talla-
hassee is to give the money
back," he said. "If you allow
a sales-tax holiday with a
week to spend $5,000, every-
one is going to put it on
their credit card and then
they will have debt to pay
off.


"Until we solve the infra-
structure needs of the state, it
is not a good practice to give
the money back."
Shenanigans
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Nora Patterson said
the FDOT work program has
been disrupted all over the
state'.
"We should use the excess
.money to restore the five-
year program," Patterson
said. "We had
whole pro-
jects wiped
out."
All of the e "
projects that .; .
were affected t.<.
took years to
develop and
get approval
from the MPO Mills
and state, she
said.
Sarasota Manatee Airport
Authority Commissioner Bob
Waechter called the tax break
election-year shenanigans.
!'It's shameful what they


are doing and the impact
this is haying on everyone,"
Waechter said.
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Jon Thaxton said simi-
lar letters and requests were
sent out by the Southwest
Florida Regional Planning
Council a week earlier.
"I don't think it's greedy to
ask for the money," Thaxton
said. "It is taxes people paid
for infrastructure and should
go to that purpose."
The regional planning
council also took the step to
send a formal request to
counties across the state to
push a vote asking the state
to identify the transportation
needs and provide a way to
pay for any shortfalls.
The statewide referendum
would demand the Legisla-
ture come up with a plan to
solve the current transporta-
tion crisis and come up with
a way to pay for it for the
next 10, 20 and 30 years.

Special-needs shelters get upgrade


BYBOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

People with special needs
in Sarasota County will soon
be able to hunker down dur-
ing a hurricane in a little
more comfort.
Thanks to an agreement
between the county and the
school district, four hurricane
evacuation shelters designat-
ed for use for people with spe-
cial needs are going to get
improvements.
David Harrawood, execu-
tive director of county emer-
gency services, said the agree-
ment will help pay for the
installation of larger genera-
ts cqat three,schools.and an
Upgrade to the electrical sys-
tem at the foiuith shelter.
The county commission-
ers approved providing $2
million to the school district
for the upgrades during a
recent meeting, something
Harrawood said is crucial to
meeting the needs of the
community.
At the start of the year,
there were 1,835 people regis-
tered as "special needs," a
number Harrawood said is
increasing each year as the
county's population changes.
The county has two spe-


cial needs shelters in North
County and two in South
County.
My generators
The new generators will
allow the schools to be fully
powered, including lighting,
any necessary medical equip-
ment and the air condition-
*ing. The same capacity will be'
available at the fourth shelter,
Oak Park Elementary, after
the electrical system is up-
graded.
Debra Metheny, school dis-,
trict executive director of busi-
ness analysis and support,
said the generators will go a
long way to creating a more
cqnfprtable ,e,g ent for
people with special needs.
A.group of school, county
and Red Cross officials meets
regularly to discuss disaster
planning.
Harrawood said the meet-
ings are critical as the county
and district plan for the future.
"We are always looking at
our capacity and demand," he
said.
All schools are required to
have 50 percent of their build-
ings covered with enhanced
hurricane protections.
By working together, the
county and school district

Needs, and needs
People with special needs
fall into distinct categories.
Some qualify because they
have no way to get to a shel-
ter and would not need to go
to a special-needs shelter if
an evacuation is ordered.
Their special need is trans-
portation.
Other people who might
be on oxygen or are older and
need to have air conditioning
are the primary occupiers of
the "special needs" shelter in
Sarasota County.
People with, acute illness
are typically sent to ai local
hospital as ne'edd'.
The county currently has
the ability to shelter about
2,300 people with special
needs.
Sarasota County does not
actively promote the location
of its special-needs shelters
to avoid stretching the ca-
pacity of the people working
at the shelters.
Anyone with more ques-
tions about the special needs
center can call 861-5000.

BY GABRIELA RAMIREZ
SUN INTERN

Sarasota County and North
Port officials were in a con-
gratulatory mood Thursday
afternoon as the first session

lots in North Port concluded.
"It went very well," North
Port City Commissioner Fred
Tower III said. "I was very
pleased."
Of the 1,058 lots offered in
the first session of Internet
bidding, 981 lots 93 percent
- of first-session lots were
sold. With the conclusion of
the first session, the c16' and
county realized gros' 'rev-
enues of $29.2 million.
A total of 9,590 bids were
placed on the lots before the
bidding ended.
"The auction proved most
bidding happened at the
end," Tower said.
Contracts will be sent to the
successful bidders within a
week.
The 771ots that did not sell
will be among the 551 lots.

through. Feb. 6. During this
session, like the first, written
and Internet bids will be
accepted. Lots will be sold
individually during this ses-
sion.
Tower. said if the second
phase goes as well as the first,
the auction will net about
$60 million.
"There is still another auc-
tion after those two," Tower
added.
Auction action
All lots that do not sell inm
the first three sessions will be
available during a live auction
at 7 p.m., Feb. 28. at the North
Port Performing 'Arts' Center.
During the live auction, lots
will be aggregated in sets of
five or more.
A cashier's check in the
amount of $5,000 per lot is
required to place a bid. This
amount is not refunded to a
winning bidder who fails to
complete the sale. That
amount, however, will be re-
funded if a bidder does not
win alot.
The auction is being con-
ducted by Fisher Auction
Company; the firm selected by


the city and county to
market and sell the lots. The
company will help those
without computers or Inter-
net connections to place a
bid at Fisher Auction's local
office, 7050 S. Chancellor Blvd.
in North Port.
From the proceeds, from
the sale of the lots, about
$800,000 in back taxes and
administrative costs will be
paid to the county. The city
of North Port will then receive
55 percent of the remainder
and the county will take 45
percent. Sarasota County will
apply'$5 millionofits-hareto
'the chd61 distriD.0 omoagidi
* Buyers will pay a 6-percent
premium in addition to the
cost of the lot. The premium
will pay for advertising, Fish-
er's fees and broker's fees, if
one was used.
North Port has not yet an-
nounced what it plans to do
with its share of the proceeds.
To date, the commissioners
have not scheduled a meeting
to discuss it.
.However, commissioner
Barbara Gross said, "Roads are
very important. That's what
we get the most calls on."

Grassroots groups



seek voting



machine changes

SAFE wants the county to buy machines that
would give voters verification of the ballots they
cast, and ensure accuracy in recounts.


Party officials


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER
An organized group of
civic-minded citizens con-
verged on the Robert L. An-
derson Administration Center
last week in hopes the coun-
ty will adopt a ballot verifi-
cation system for elections.
Supporters of the newly
formed Sarasota Alliance for
Fair Elections, a nonpartisan
political committee whose
purpose is to gather petitions
and raise money to support
verified voting for all voters in
Sarasota County, expressed
the desire to get that hard-
copy system in time for the'
November election.
So far, the state of Florida
has yet to certify any
machine system that provide
verifiable ballot receipts for
manual recounts after close
elections.
Until then, county Super-
visor of Elections Kathy Dent
has repeatedly said she will
not ask the county commis-
sioners to make the poten-
tially costly change.
The county currently owns
1,615 ES&S machines that
were state of the art in 2001
when they came from the


manufacturer with a $4.7 mil-
lion price tag.
It is unclear what' that
many new machines would
cost the county. Alliance
members claim they could
cost 40 percent less than the
current system.
Dent reported that since
the new machines were first
used in 2002, there have no
problems with security or
fraud. In fact, she said, the
county's system had a much
lower "undervote" average
rate than the popular optical
scan system that uses paper.
In the dark
Stephanie Harrison said
she is worried about the se-
curity of her vote and had
supporters of the alliance
stand to show their support,
"You can't provide an ac-
curate audit," Harrison said.
"We all enjoy the government
in the sunshine in Florida.
Right now we have the vot-
ing in the dark. We need pa-
per ballots.".
Daniel Devine, of Venice,
said the alliance is gathering
signatures for a petition to.
get an item on the November
ballot to change to county
charter to require a paper

trail.
"Why would anyone want
an unverifiable voting system
unless they want to hide
something?" Devine asked.
He even went so far as to
seek the commissioners' sig-
natures for the petition.
The group wants optical
scanners, which it claims are
40 percent cheaper to use.
than touch-screen machines,
have a low error rate and
provide the verified paper
ballot.
Other speakers said they


want voter-verified paper
ballots like the absentee bal-
lots used now in Sarasota
County not punch cards,
not paper receipts, not paper
trails.
"I want confidence in my
vote," James Smith said. "I
have no confidence."
Alliance members suggest-
ed people vote absentee to
ensure their vote is counted
accurately.
Change not needed
Commission Chair David


Mills, who sits on the election
canvassing board, said he
does not believe a change is
needed.
"The machines, I think,
performed admirably," Mills
said. "We have a tremend-
ous financial investment in
these."
He added that since there
is nothing wrong with what
the county uses, he doesn't
see a compelling reason to
make a change.
Members of the audience
grumbled at Mills' com-


ments.
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson said she also sees no
reason to change if there
has been no problems with
the system, the county al-
ready has.
"I will talk with Mrs. Dent
when it looks like there is a
certifiable mechanism, but I
don't know if one is immi-
nent," Patterson said. "Most
people like them."

Parents line up their vehicles as they wait for their children to exit Venice Elementary School.


Officer Nathan King talks to a driver as vehicles line Miami Avenue waiting for the close of school.


MIAMI from Page 1A
Hindsight
A little foresight on the part
of the people who designed
the school might, have
helped.
"They should have
redesigned the entrance or
put another lane on Bahama
to handle the school traffic,"
Goodson said. "We have no
other solution."
Officials said schools are
exempt from having to go
through, the'same processes
that a private developer
would have to go through,


such as traffic studies, before
building.
However, Sarasota School
District spokeswoman Sheila
Weiss said the city did have
some input on the traffic mat-
ter.
"The plan was taken to
Venice police, reviewed, sug-
gestions were made and
approved," Weiss said. "Same
with the (Venice) fire depart-
ment."
In a perfect world
Ideally, no one would
come down Miami to drop off
or pick up their children.


They would use Milan to
Bahama, and drop them off
on Bahama. That's in a per-
fect world.
"The 'businesses (along
Miami) are complaining like
crazy" another officer said,
"because nobody can get to
their place during that time
and those that do are just
using it for a turn-around."
Police discourage another
bad, and potentially danger-
ous, practice: Some parents
are dropping their kids off
before they get to the school
and letting them walk the rest
of the way.

"We don't have any way of
protecting them (from traffic
if they walk)," Goodson said.
"There are really no guards
except on U.S. 41 intersection
at Milan."
Goodson said the school is
not to blame.
"They have been cooperat-
ing with us," Goodson said.
"They even sent out letters to
parents to make them aware
of the situation when school
started in August."

lege students will soon have
convenient parking and suit-
able places to study on cam-
pus.
By next summer, MCC will
have completed its $3.4 mil-
lion Venice Parking and
Landscape Project The pro-
ject begins this month.
This dual-phase project
will offer students, staff and
faculty more than 300 new
parking spaces, as well as
double the number of shaded
gathering areas on campus.
"Parking areas need to be
located around the entire
campus," Cheryl Leach, MCC
business management stu-
dent, said. "They need to be
accessible from all the build-
ings."
Phase one, expected to be
completed in August 2006,
will be done in two stages.
Stage one will add more park-
ing near the Professional
Development Center, a drop-
off circle and fresh landscap-
ing.
Stage two will add. new
parking by the faculty build-
ing, reconstruct the main
courtyard and add a reading
grove. The reading grove will
be an outside study area with
shaded benches.
Some students feel there
are not enough places to
study with classmates, and
existing areas are too small.
"We have plenty of places
to sit and chat with a few
friends, but (we) need larger
tables so we can study in
groups," Leach said.
Along with the reading
grove, a performance stage
and open quad area will be
added near the Academic
Resource Center.
"The stage (and quad area)
will provide an intimate and
more interactive space for
student activities," MCC
Venice CEO Joan McGill said.
The new space would be
great for poetry readings,
concerts, classes, luncheons
or receptions, McGill said.
New and improved
Phase two, expected to be
completed during summer
2007, will renovate the middle
parking lot and center court-
yard as well as modernize the
landscaping.
In addition, more handi-
cap parking will be added
with easy access to sidewalks.
MCC officials first realized
the need for more parking


about a year and a half ago.
Phil Van Ess, MCC director of
facilities, planning, and main-
tenance, surveyed the Venice
parking lot several times and
found the lot was consistently
within 10 to 12 vehicles of
being full.
"The student population
has grown by double digits
(each year) for the past five
years,"Van Ess said.
Reconstruction of the
parking lot will maximize
space and allow students to
walk to and from class with-
out stepping in mud and
puddles when it rains,Van Ess
said.
The updated landscaping
is expected to freshen the
look of the Venice campus. To
keep the new landscaping
looking its best, $250,000 will
be spent to install a proper
irrigation system.
"The water will be taken
from the main lake, but will
not noticeably decrease the
water level," Van Ess said.
Brainstorming
When designing the pro-
ject, Van Ess held a brain-
storming meeting to allow
Venice faculty and students to
share their suggestions on
how to improve the campus.
Students unanimously urged
that gathering areas and more
parking be added.
The new gathering areas
may inspire students to stay
on campus throughout the
day, Van Ess said.
As with any construction
process, there may be times
of slight inconvenience. Some
areas of the parking lot and
courtyards will be blocked off.
There will be more noise, dirt
and sand near the construc-
tion areas as well.
During phase one, a light-
ed walkway will be provided
to allow students and faculty
'1 fipss thrbugh'th''cbisrruc-
'tionarea to the PDC safely.-
Upon completion, theVen-
ice Parking and Landscape
Project will lessen parking
frustration, freshen the look
of the campus' and give stu-
dents the space to study and.
socialize comfortably during
their free time.
"The campus will appear
much more welcoming and
provide a warmer and more
modem atmosphere for stu-
dents." McGill said.

they're really sick or to take off
during a time when they
might not be sick at all."
If people are sick, they can
contaminate the surfaces
they've touched as well as a 3-
5 foot area around them if
they sneeze or cough without
covering their nose and
mouth.
Health-care professionals
recommend taking the time
to occasionally wipe down
common surfaces, such as
telephones.
Happy birthday to you
What is the single best way
to protect yourself against
germs?
Good old-fashioned soap
and water, the pros say.
"You must wash your
hands with soap and water
and it must be in contact with
the hands for at least 10 to 15
seconds," Bolanos said.
"A lot of people don't
wash, long enough, or just
rinse their hands under the
water."

PROTECTING
YOURSELF
Simple things you can do to help protect yourself from getting
sick in the workplace:
* Clean your hands often with soap and water or an alcohol-based
hand cleaner.
* Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
* If possible, avoid close contact with people who are sick.
* Do not share eating utensils, drinking glasses, towels or other
personal items.
SStay home when you are sick.
* After coughing or sneezing, always wash your hands.
* If you have to cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and stand at
least 6 feet from others.
* Some workplaces allow common popcorn bowls for all to enjoy.
Use a paper cup or ladle, not your bare hands, to scoop popcorn
or pretzels.
* Do not "double dip," that is, do not dip chips or vegetables in a
common dip, put them in your mouth, then dip again. Put the dip
on a plate.
* Avoid crowds when possible.
* Keep hand sanitizers and facial tissue handy.
* Use common sense. Unfortunately, it is not so common.


hands. That takes about 15-20
seconds. Children should
recite the alphabet twice
while washing their hands,
Shipley said.
Beware the doorknob
Bolanos said doorknobs
also may be contaminated.
"I'm very compulsive
about this," Bolanos said.
w"After I clean my hands, I


use a paper towel to dry my
hands and to open the door,
throwing the paper towel in
the garbage once I leave the
room."
In addition to doorknobs,
other areas in common use,
such as the telephone, copy
machine and coffeepot han-
dle can also spread germs,
Dillberg said.
Keeping a box of alcohol


wipes by your desk and using
them to wipe down surfaces
at your work area is another
way to keep viruses at bay.
Try a pocket antiseptic
(hand sanitizer) solution.
They are quite the rage, are
handy and available over the
counter at just about every
drugstore.
They can be kept at a desk,
in pocket or purse, require no
water and are less drying to
the skin than soap and water.
They are effective against
most viruses, according to
Shipley.
Also, leftover food in the
refrigerator can be a breeding
ground for. food-related ill-
nesses, Dillberg said.
She suggests that all food
left in the community refrig-
erator be clearly marked and
discarded after 24 hours.
All this may sound pretty
complicated and too much
trouble.
So just use common sense.

Black said candidates will not
be interviewed by current po-
lice management or officers.
As for the test, the city
manager would not discuss
details because it's a surprise.
"They know there will be a
scored component (to the
.interview), but they will not
know what that is," Black
said. "We'll see if they've done
their homework before com-
ing in."

ice Police Department has
been under intense criticism,
especially after the Matrix

REPORTS from Page lA


ment. Lopez answers to the
housing board, and it an-
swers to the U.S. Department
of Housing and Urban Devel-
opment, and the DCA at the
state level.
'All they (DCA) need is a
repqr.... We will be reporting
within the time window,"
Lopez said.
He .attributed the lapse to
human ertor.
Extreme circumstances
would be needed to shut
down Grove Terrace, but that
penalty is listed as a possibili-
ty on page four of the notice.
The state letter also men-
tions firdancial penalties and


.that VHA would be responsi-
ble for legal costs of any
enforcement action.
"Carrying out enforce-
ment provisions is a. very
time-consuming and ex-
pensive process," the DCA
letter states. "Ultimately,
Florida's taxpayers must pay
these costs. Responding
appropriately to this letter
and avoiding this noncom-
pliance in the future will
save taxpayer resources."
Simple errors
City Manager Marty Black
hopes the explanation by
Lopez proves out. Before


Lopez took over two years
ago, Grove Terrace was buried
in financial, building code
and resident violations at the
local and federal levels.
Black fears any new finan-
cial problems could jeopar-
dize the redevelopment ef-
forts of South County's only
public housing complex, lo-
cated on North Grove Street
near the drinking water plant
and fire station.
On top of the DCA request,
the city has been waiting
since last September for VHA
to submit its financial audit
covering 2004-05, and VHA's
payment in lieu of taxes


(PILOT) covering 2003-04.
Acting, Finance Director
JoAnne Lounsbury was told
by Lopez the audit report
would be submitted as soon
as theVHA board accepts it in
February.
Grove Terrace paid $2,255
on Aug. 1, 2005, to cover the
2004-05 PILOT bill, but she
has no record for the 2003-04
bill. Lopez said in a newspa-
per interviewVHA was caught
up with its PILOT bills.
"I'm not saying there's not
chance of human error,"
Lounsbury said. "(Lopez)
should just be able to give me
a copy of the check and


form.,"
'Serious concern'
The city manager wonders
if these issues combined
with Lopez submitting his
resignation, effective March
31 will weigh against VHA
winning Low-Income Hous-
ing Tax Credit financing.
Grove Terrace is counting
on about $16 million through
the LIHTC to fund demolition
and redevelopment of Grove
Terrace from 50 decaying
apartment units to 72 units by
2007.
Phase 2 of redevelopment
would provide an additional


72 units, dedicated to the
elderly, on the 6.6 acres next
to Hatchett Creek.
That project is dependent
on another round of LIHTC
applications.
VHA's deadline to ,apply
was today (Wednesday), and
it expects an answer from the
state in August.
"It is a serious concern for
the city, especially from a
financial perspective," Black
said.

Big bucks expected from North Port lot sale


People who have been critical of the
North Port lot auction must now con-
sider the first round results to be very
good news: More than $29 million will be
shared by the city and Sarasota County.
North Port's first round windfall will be
about $16 million, while the county will pocket
$13 million. And less than half the, lots have
been sold so far. The second round ends Feb. 6.
Sarasota County has said it will use its
share to provide affordable housing for work-
ers who cannot afford homes in the current
market.
It is less clear how North Port will spend its
newfound surplus funds.
Apparently a number of the bidders were
area builders who wanted to increase their
inventory of lots. If that is the case, it appears


North Port's population will continue to
swell. There are those in city government
who believe the city already has a larger pop-
ulation than Sarasota.
It appeared at first the auction would be a
flop. But Louis Fisher B. Fisher, the CEO of
Fisher Auction Company, had shown no con-
cern as the bidding started slowly. He pre-
dicted that in the last 24 hours the auction
would heat up, and he was right
Lanny Campion, of Bradenton the last
bidder in the first round of the North Port lot
-auction says over the years he has bought
and sold hundreds of lots in North Port.
Campion who retired as a field representa-
tive for a high-tech company, said he paid as
little as $1,000 per lot back when property
taken for taxes was being sold on courthouse


steps. This time he paid from $21,000 to
$45,000 for the four lots he purchased.
He suggested that in the second round the
lots would sell faster because bidders were now
familiar with how the Internet auction works.
He also said he watched major builders bidding
to bolster their lot inventory.
Not only will the city and county have
extra millions to spend on projects, the lots
will now go back on tax rolls, helping to fill
governments pockets with more revenue.
The plan to auction off the lots had been
extremely controversial at the start. Both the
city and county engaged in a bitter dispute
over who actually became the owner when
people failed to pay their taxes.
The county read the law one way, the
attorney for North Port differed. The city sued


the county. Before the trial began the parties
were required to meet with a mediator. In
December of 2004 they agreed to the 45-55
percent split of the proceeds, but not without
criticism.
When all the lots are finally sold this
month, it now appears the city could have
more than $30 million to spend. Funds are
very much needed to repair roads and to
expand city water and sewer service to more
homes.
N6rth Port also needs far more park land
as the population grows toward the 200,000
residents eventually expected to live here as
soon as 2020 and possibly before then.
We urge the city's critics to now devote
their efforts to helping city officials target the
most intelligent uses for the money.


GCCFV leads model


development effort


ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST


Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice is doing
more than just planning a
model development between
)' Laurel and Border roads fea-
turing affordable housing,
which is great news in itself-
it has invited a group of will-
ing developers, city and
county officials, architects,
engineers and more in think-
ing about how to make a real
community out of the area.
In an activity not previous-
ly announced, the foundation
has hired architects to lead a
charettee" (architect-speak
for a planning exercise): shar-
ing ideas, suggesting options,
and reviewing tentative con-
cepts in an attempt to make
something really worthy out
of an area scheduled for very'
dense development.
The area's major builders
are volunteering time and
skills looking at the area,
across city and county
boundaries, across property
lines, toward a community
with a center, with linked
green spaces, with environ-
mentally friendly develop-
ment in short many of the
things that I discussed with
city leaders and County
Commissioner Jon Thaxton
in last week's column.
The process has been
under way for several weeks
but foundation officials did
not feel free to mention the
names of the developers,
whom they described as
"enthusiastically supporting"
the exercise.
Teri Hansen, president of
the foundation, and Marjorie
Floyd, vice president for mar-
keting, have been deeply
involved in the planning and
development process. Floyd
says the foundation is aiming
for a "green community" with
a town square, various kinds
of housing, single- and multi-
family even the possibility
of some houses on "stilts" tak-
ing advantage of the tree
cover and not intruding on
wetlands.
They will be considering
the kinds of things I men-
tioned in a column about
Vancouver, B.C.'s develop-
ment standards, involving
solar energy; permeable park-
ing surfaces to allow greater
absorption of water rather
than run-off; and links with
surroundding properties, per-
haps a greenway leading to


the Myakka across properties
with different owners.
Floyd is hoping no walls or
gated communities separate
the new developments, and
joint planning eases pedestri-
an travel to a nearby shop-
ping area and theater com-
plex.
Will Villa Paradiso
be paradise?
City council will soon con-
sider a request by Standard
Pacific, a large, publicly trad-
ed company that bought
Westfield homes. Standard
Pacific, based in Irvine, Calif.,
has. applied to rezone 155
',atrtesberween" ,Laurel Road
and&BOfder Road as a Planned
Unit Development and
received a positive recom-
mendation from the pre-
dictably supportive planning
commission.
The property abuts the
property owned by the foun-
dation. Will council ask for
more than 1 percent of prop-
erty to go to Venice as a park,
and will it allow unusual
heights?
Mark Carpenter, sales
manager for the project, re-
ports the company plans to
build just under 600 dwelling
units: 143 single-family
homes starting at $400,000;
130 townhouse-style villas
starting at $300,000; and 320
condominium units starting
at $300,000 each, which will
be in four-story buildings
reaching 57 feet in height.
Carpenter could not ex-
plain ,why four-story build-
ings would be taller than 45
feet. I asked city officials why
it is in the public's interest to
allow 57-foot buildings in that
area and about the precedent
for other development. A se-
nior staff representative an-
swered there is a value to
mixed kinds of housing and
that density allows lower,
costs.
With the lowest-priced un-
its being planned at $300,000
- we are not speaking of
affordable housing here -
the density/affordability
argument we hear frequently
at planning commission and
council meetings has little
basis in reality.
Not long ago, council
member John Moore asked
Jeffrey A. Boone, agent for a
developer who had made
such a statement, whether he
was suggesting his client was
thinking of building afford-
able housing. The answer was
a hasty "no."
The foundation, however,
is going to build workforce
housing and, while it is too
early in the process for specif-
ic prices, its goal would be to
have units of varying price,
with the lowest about
$150,000, half that of the low-
est-price Paradiso units.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


We've got two chances to help education


Editor:


It has long been my opinion that education is the cure for
many of our societal ills. And I believe that most people in this
county will agree that an educated public is enemy of despots
and a foundation for the greatness of our country.
We, the citizens of Sarasota County, have the immediate
opportunity to support education on two fronts:
1. The renewal on March 14 of the 1-mill ad valorem tax we
initially passed in 2002 will allow for the continuance of the
good work started by Wilma Hamilton and now carried on by
School Superintendent Dr. Gary Norris.
Many will say that our school system is not as efficient as it
could be. Probably true. But superintendents Hamilton and
Norris have changed the direction of Sarasota County Schools
so that they are getting more efficient and producing better
results. We must continue our support.
2. Junior Achievement. If you are like me, you may recall this
organization from your own high school experience (some
four decades ago for me). This organization is seeing a resur-
gence in Sarasota County and can be a significant player in
answering the need for our schools to turn out more employ-
able graduates. Junior Achievement is the independent voice
of free enterprise in our schools and deserves our support.
So I ask that you do two things: Go to jasarasota.org to find
out about Junior Achievement in Sarasota County, and vote
"Yes" for the continuance of the school tax on March 14. Our
future will be brighter if you do.


More money not
always the answer

Editor:
I want to take this opportu-
nity to tell you how much I
have been enjoying our two
conservative columnists.
Joe Brower's column in this
morning's paper was right on
the mark. I thoroughly agree
with him that we need more
information and citizen par-
ticipation before we continue
to hand over taxpayer money
to the schools. '
Taxpayers are witnessing
increases in everything per-
taining to their everyday liv-
ing and should be very pru-
dent in voting to continue'a
tax that was supposedly tem-

porary.
Throwing additional mon-
ey at a problem is not always
the best solution. I am sure
Joe will receive much reaction
to his column from those in
the field of education, but
that's what we need both
sides of a story.
Kudos to Joe for an excel-
lent article.

Say no to proposed
Medicaid reform
Editor:
My aunt, a 92-year-old res-
ident of the other side of the
state, West. Palm Beach, was
hoping to see her greatest


wish come true: having her
modest savings benefit her
son, who will be in need of
special care.
This will not be realized
unless Congress votes "no" on
the proposed Budget Recon-
ciliation Act, scheduled for a
vote on Feb. 1.
In an attempt to provide
for her son's care, she con-
tributed a modest amount to
a trust fund in my name.
The proposed bill before
Congress would consider this
money to still be hers, making
her not "poor enough" to
receive Medicaid for her own
care. She lives in a nursing
home costing her $8,000
monthly, which will soon
leave nothing for her son.
Medicaid certainly is de-
signed to aid those who need
it most. However, the pro-
posed legislation should not
create more poor people, or
make a 92-year-old woman
feel a lifetime of hard work
was for naught.
Our family asks that our
congressional representatives
give serious thought to our
seniors, who will be devastat-
ed if this unreasonable legis-
lation passes.
We urge people to contact
your representatives and ask
them to vote "no" on the bill.

Peg Moffett
Venice
Parents deserve
full disclosure
Editor:
I've read articles in your
paper explaining the woes of
the Department of Children
and Families, but this one
takes the cake.
How could a department
set up to monitor the facilities


that care for our innocent
children just report informa-
tion about Venice Presbyter-
ian Church's Preschool in the
Pines without disclosing prior
reports of the Early Child-
hood Center?
Experts say one of the best
defenses against putting your
child in an inadequate day
care center is to research the
center. How can parents do
this?
The government agency
we fund with our taxes isn't
giving us the entire picture.
Parents are given a false sense
of security. Pastor Romig and
the session (who the congre-
gation turns to for spiritual
and moral guidance) are one
more time not stepping up to
the plate.
I understand that the day
care center is one of Venice
Presbyterian Church's largest
missions; they are ready for
all this to be behind them and
they are not legally responsi-
ble to disclose. But every
inquiry made about the new
Preschool in the Pines should
be redirected to the former
Early Childhood Center.
All we are asking for is full
disclosure. We ask it from our
financial institutions, car
dealers and advertisers. Is it
too much to ask from the cen-
ters that care for our precious
children?

A Sarasota County taxpayer s wish list


BY NORM LUPO
GUEST COLUMNIST

I wish everyone concerned
about public education
watched the ABC "20/20"
program called "Stupid in
America: How We Are Cheat-
ing Our Kids," with John
Stossel.
A brief description: Amer-
ican students fizzle in inter-
national comparison, placing
18th in reading, 22nd in sci-
ence and 28th in math.
School officials complain that
they need more money, but
as Stossel reports, most coun-
tries that out perform us
spend less per student than
we do.
I wish and hope the same
good people that are honor
the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr. every Jan. 16 are
standing together to renew
our collective efforts to pro-
mote educational equality.
Do we not hear that one
school or school district
somehow is better than
another? In America, why is
that? Should not all children
residing in our state have
equal and uniform educa-
tional opportunities?
I wish we understood that
a five-member school board
and a schools superintendent
cannot by themselves be
expected to get all the thou-
sands of district students to
become high achievers. The
bottom line is personal
responsibility- students dedi-
cated to their studies and old-
fashioned hard work, with
their parents' involvement. -
I, wish our school board
members and the superin-
tendent would rather -lobby


the state (we assume they
have but need to continue to
do so), and our state repre-
sentatives, if extra funding is
absolutely needed, while
proving the need and antici-
pated benefits of all their wish
lists.
I wish everyone openly
admits that advocating a 1-
mill (or any mill) local refer-
endum is a Band-Aid and not
the best or only solution to
bettering education or the
funding of it. If we locally do
what the state and federal
government should be doing,
what incentive will the state
legislators have to. provide
more dollars?
I wish all teachers were
paid a uniform, decent salary
on a statewide basis..Does it
make any sense that one dis-
trict is competing against oth-
ers to attract new teachers?
Why should teachers have to
move from one area of the
state to another for better
pay? How are the kids affected
in all this turnover?.
I wish the board would tell
voters and taxpayers that
every single issue to be voted
on by our school board is
thoroughly examined, maybe
even by some qualified out-
side party with the expertise
to make a determination that
a recurring item has done
what it was intended to do a
new item will likely perform
as promised.
I wish we could find other
solutions to properly fund all
our state schools. Can we not
find a better or more equi-
table way while cutting our
local school property taxes by,
say, 50 percent? Maybe some
- politician could provide lead-


ership by proposing to
increase the state sales tax
maybe by 1 percent (getting
those tourist dollars). If
passed, those millions would
to be put in a state education-
al funding lock-box.
I wish the well-intended
NeXt Generation Norris plan
could be applied statewide if
it's so necessary and needed. I
don't understand why this
good plan (and the goals
therein) would be for this one
particular school district.
I wish we could all remem-
ber we do not live in a Third-'
World country. Our school
district is blessed with many
10s of millions of dollars from
various sources to be able to
provide a good quality educa-
tion for our students.
I think many are now ask-
ing just how many 10s of mil-
lions of tax dollars does this
one school district actually
need? Is enough ever enough?
My wish would be for all of
us to come together and think
of ways to make some mean-
ingful, long-term improve-
ments in statewide public
education and new ways to
fund tthem. Anybody can
come up with short-term
ideas or recommendations.
The real challenge is to seek
and find long-term solutions.
If a local referendum is so
desperately needed, I don't
understand why this district
could not have approved a 0.5
mill tax to show compromise
and balance.
Will the 1-mill pass in
* March 2006? Will it be the last
one, or are we to expect these
four-year local county school
referendums to be ongoing
until when?

AND PICK-UP LANES AT VENICE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL? CALL US AT 207-1111.


The license is in the mail


Mail problems. I'd like to expound on the lady who called
about the U.S. postal service. My husband and I were married
in September 1997. I lived 2 miles from the South County
Courthouse, where we got our marriage license. It was sup-
posed to be sent to us directly after our wedding. It was.
Unfortunately, the post office still hasn't delivered and they
keep raising the rates. I feel for this lady who gets her mail
returned after two days. I wish they'd return mine; at least that
way the county could give it to me again. I'm hoping that the
postal service gets a lot more Let'em Have Its.


Take it back. Just a few
comments for town. First off,
you folks in. Grove Terrace
might enjoy your neighbors
as much as you can because I
have a feeling when the dust
settles and new contracts are
out and construction is done,
most of you won't be there.
Most of you will be living
somewhere else. Why? Does
anyone think Mike Miller
bought the cement plant and
is building new condos on the
Intracoastal so he can look
over at low-income housing?
Come on folks, think about it.
You're right up there with the
'priority of the skateboard
park kids. They'd probably
like to move you to Tampa. I
wish you luck staying in town.
Folks, don't you think it's time
we took back the city?
Unbelievable. I am ap-
palled at the business at the
Circus Bridge that is painting
its parking lot in a checker-
board pattern. I cannot be-
lieve the city does. not have
that area under any type of
parameters to be the Venetian
entryways now that we have


spent $4,000 per tree to make
that area look mice.
Sign placement. I'd like to
question the placement of the
beautiful new Venice Island
on the Gulf gateway signs.
The Venice Avenue sign is in
the median, 0.8 mile further
away from the old sign, which
is yet to be removed. Has the
city line been extended? The
Circus Bridge south sign looks
like it's part of Marine Max. It
blends as if Marine Max has
influenced the location deci-
sion to attract attention to its
business. Why not at the
beginning of the first or sec-
ond median strip, where cars
entering and leaving the


island could easily .see?
Especially the thanks for visit-
ing, which should include the
word Venice. The Route 41
north sign, yet to be installed,
hopefully will be in median
strip at the north end of the
split, where entering and de-
parting traffic from the island
and the bypass can easily view
it, like the Nokomis and Osprey
signs. While I'm on the subject
of signage, isn't there a beautifi-
cation ordinance limiting the
number of signs any one build-
ing can have? At Business 41
and Venice Avenue, Century 21
has four signs.
Yes, worth it. I am appalled
by the call titled, "Not worth it,"
from the person who thinks
teachers' salaries should be cut
I hope they realize that salaries
will be going to approximately
$27,000 a year. I am currently a
student, becoming a teacher,
and the ignorance of this per-
son is just unbelievable. Where
would they be without a
teacher? They wouldn't even be
able to read this newspaper.

FUNDING


/ OUR


SCHOOLS


FOR' THE


FUTURE


The Venice Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors voted
unanimously at its January meeting to support the continuation of the
1-mill property tax for our school system.

In 2002, when the voters first authorized the tax, our Chamber felt this
was an investment in our children and future. Then Chamber President
(Chairman of the Board) Tommy Taylor stated that "Sarasota County
schools are in need of the revenues the referendum will produce" and he
was confident the district would marriage those funds wisely.


VE NICE


AREA


ICAM RO O MERE


Since 2002, the monies collected have helped:
Restore a $37 million budget deficit
to reduce class sizes in compliance with a
state-legislated mandate
Add desperately needed literacy coaches and remedial
teachers to raise student performance
Reduce the drop out rate
Improve teacher salaries
Enhance and expand art & music programs that suffered
cutbacks prior to the referendum
Add guidance counselors and opened a school for at-risk
students
Replenish a reserve fund

This year's Board believes the need is still there and that going
backward is not an option on funding for our schools. "We can't afford to
give up now on the investment we've made in our kids," stated current
Chairman of the Board Kathy Lehner. She further stated, "This is a
continuation of a current tax and the consequences of not approving
this will negatively impact the future quality of life for our businesses
and community".

The Board of Directors encourages you to vote yes on March 14 for this
critical. issue. If you would like to help promote this effort, or need
further information, please contact John Ryan at the Chamber.

by a local resident's correspondence.
The Committee made its selection from this letter. 'The Kingfish Cafe is a Venice
caf6 which I think should be recognized as Business of the Month. Kingfish is a small
caf6 but the service and friendliness of the owners is outstanding. The food is excellent
and prices are reasonable. I have dined often and always have been very pleased
with everything over all.",

More fires reported in North Port


BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER

High winds and no humid-
ity turned a small fire into a
20-acre blaze Saturday after-
noon.
More than 30 firefighters
from North Port, Nokomis,
Venice, Englewood, Sarasota
and Charlotte counties bat-
tled a fire at Raintree Boul-
evard and Oakhill Drive, in
the east end of town, for al-
most three hours.
"When we got there, it was
only a half-an-acre fire," said
North Port Fire Deputy Chief
Howard Bearse.
He said the first engine got
to the fire within seven min-
utes of the call at 1:45 p.m.


However, with the windy
conditions and lack of hu-
midity, Bearse said the fire
spread quickly.
The fire might have started
in a grassy area, about a block
in from the road. As soon as
the fire hit the dense under-
brush, however, it spread five
blocks. The fire wasn't
brought under control until
4:30 p.m., Bearse said.
Six engines, three brush
trucks and three tractors from
the Florida Department of
Forestry were used to stop the
fire from spreading. There
were no homes in the area.
A second fire started on
Sweden Avenue and spread to
Billberry Street and Wilburn
Terrace. This was quickly put

out on Sunday night.
"It took us 15 to 20 minutes
to knock down that fire,"
Bearse said, adding about an
acre was burned.
Bearse said both areas are
still hot. On Monday, a resi-
dent called 9-1-1 and report-
ed the ground at Sweden.
Avenue and Wilbum Terrace
is "still smoldering and the
embers are still hot."
North Port Fire Depart-
ment responded, but found


no flames.
A fire on 8 acres at Jeannin
Drive came very close to five
new homesWednesday, and a
smaller fire, about two blocks
from Jeannin Drive, burned
about a quarter of au acre on
Thursday, Bearse said.
There have been no other
fires at Jeannin Drive reported
since Friday, Bearse said.

view High.

new head coaches this year,
as Larry Sandburg and Pete
Dombroski are sharing the
load. Both are former base-
ball mentors. Sandburg is
in the Venice Sports Hall
of Fame for his success in
coaching baseball at VHS.
' The new press box at the
softball field is nearly com-
plete. Workers were working

signated hitter/first baseman.

Vikings hope to put


two halves together


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

It turned out a whole lot
better than the way it looked
in the beginning.
While the Venice Vikings
were disappointed about los-
ing their home opener Sat-
urday night, they could hold
their heads high. They were
competitive and played the
Fort Pierce Fire tough in the
second half of a 15-6 setback.
The way it started, the
Vikes couldn't do anything
right.
A switch to Chauncey
Jones at quarterback and a
shotgun offense allowed the
Vikings to come back. Jones,'
the former Booker High
standout, was able to scram-
ble for much yards and he
showed off a strong arm on
a touchdown pass to Ben
Seymour. The two almost
hooked up again late in the
contest, but Seymour was
ruled out of the back -of the
end zone.
"It was one of the cleaner
games I've seen us play,"
head coach Rich Deto said.


"We won the second half, but
we were short on the score-
board."
Deto said that Jones re-
cently had a tryout with the
Fort Myers Firecats Arena2
team. Carter Bryant and Rick
Shaw also tried out for the
team.
Coaching under Deto this
season are offensive coordi-
nator Bill Wallace, defensive
.coordinator Revelow, special
teams coordinators Frank
and Bob Carroll and team
manager Carl Hagen.
Deto and Bill "Lumpy"
Hall are the two remaining
owners.
Virlyn Moore is the voice
of the Vikings. He also volun-
teers his time .for the Pop
Warner Vikings.
The Vikings have a conces-
sion stand open during home
games. Proceeds go to the
Pop Warner Vikings.
The next home game is
this Saturday against the
Miami Bulls, who were one
of the top teams in the
Southern States Football
League last year. Game time
at Letson Stadium is 7 p.m.


start, Venice ended up on
the wrong end of a 45-32
score against host Manatee
in a Class 5A District 12
Tournament opener Tuesday
night.
Manatee (17-8) advanced
to Thursday's semifinal
round, while Venice's ninth
straight loss puts the final
record at 10-16.
It was a far cry from last
year when Venice finished
second in the state.
Still, this year's team bat-
tled adversity from the get-
go. Two members of the
coaching staff stepped out
just before the season start-
ed. Then standout guard
Natalie Gaudreau had
surgery. Forward Andrea
Krankoski had a season-
ending injury.
New coach George Stritz
was left with a lot of eager
but untested kids.
The growing pains lasted
all season, even in the dis-
trict tournament.
Venice was stone cold
shooting-wise, and turn-
overs were early and often.
After one quarter, it was 11-0
Manatee. The score went to
18-1 before Venice got its
first field, goal of the game
with 2:38 remaining before
half.
The score after two quar-
ters was 24-7.
"We're young and inex-
perienced, and that showed
in the first half," Stritz said'.
"We were shell-shocked. I
think if we could have got-
ten one of our threes to fall
against the zone, it would
have been a lot closer."
To the Lady Indians credit,
they scraped and clawed the
entire second half, actually
outpiayitig Mnaraid61e6*V'the'
final 16 minutes.
Venice outscored the Her-
icanes 9-1 to start the third
quarter, drawing to within
25-19 following Diana Meh-
serle's layup. Manatee an-
swered with eight straight
to again sit on a comfortable
14-point pad at 33-19.
Manatee depended on two
players for offense big
senior Hayley Harvey and
sophomore guard Megan
Dzikas. Each finished with
16 points.


Still, Venice didn't quit,
getting as close as eight
points in the final quarter.
"You dig yourself such a
big hole you get tired getting
out," Stritz said.
Stritz saw a lot to be hap-
py about over the final 'two
quarters.
---Giaid NMarisa Callaghan,
who showed tons of im-
provement in her senior
year, had five points. She is
the lone 12th-grader on the
team.
Junior forward Samantha
Worthington finished with
11 points. Junior Jamie Lane
had three points.
The list of promising
sophomores is long. There's
guards Mehserle, Lindsey
Riegsecker, Lauren Ramey,
and Jen Thoennissen. For-
wards include Chloe West,


Kim Pinkerton and Kaylee
Reams.
There will be lots of tal-
ented junior varsity players
moving up. from Bob Gal-
etka's girls team.
"The future looks awe-
some," Stritz said. "We'll be
ready next year."

Book it to

the library

It is my birthday today, and
I want a special present. I
want you to help replenish
the library of Salmen High
School in Slidell, La.
Destroyed by Hurricane
Katrina last summer, the
library needs new books and
cash to buy books and other
supplies. Venice resident ,Gail
Martin read. about the li-
brary's needs in this column
and, typical of the kind of
people who make Venice so
wonderful, she has been
actively working to help the
Salmen High School library,
much as her own father
helped to advance the future
of the Venice Public Library
from its modest beginning by.
members of the Venice-
Nokomis Woman's Club. If
.you can help her. and the
library, it would be one of the
best presents I could have.
Thanks to Martin, there is a
box in the Friends of the
Venice Library Bookstore into
which one can donate young
adult books in like-new con-
dition for that library. If you
do not have books to donate,
you can buy books from the
Friends for as little as 25 cents
per book and place them in
.the box, thus helping both
libraries. Martin said Pamela
Griffith volunteered to ar-`:
range for the delivery of the
books to Slidell.
If you can donate money,
send your checks to Nancy
McKee, Librarian, Salmen
High School, in care of St.
Tammany Junior High, Slidell,
LA 70458.
St. Tammany Parish, north
of New Orleans, was so lovely
when I was there less than a
yearago, before the hurricane
hit. Today, many of the places
I visited, are gone. Storms are
fickle and such devastation
could as easily happen in this,
area of -Florida, if we were to
be hit by a storm of such
ferocity;
If you can help in any way,
it will be so appreciated.
Neil Simon's "The Good
Doctor" will be at The Players
Theatre, 838 North Tamiami
Trail, Sarasota, Feb. 3 and 4.
The Broadway comedy is a
joint venture between The
Players and the Longboat Key
Chamber of Commerce. The
show will be presented Feb. 3
at 8 p.m. and for two perfor-
mances Feb. 4, at 2 and 8 p.m.
Simon's inspiration for this
show came from the short
stories of Russian playwright
Anton Chekov who began his
career as a medical doctor,
but later abandoned the field
to pursue writing. In Simons
adaptation, 10 humorous
vignettes bring a tapestry of
caricatures out of pre-
Revolutionary Russia. Direct-
ed by Arthur J. Borkowski, the
play provides the actors a
challenge of portraying differ-
ent characters in a mini-
repertoire.
The cast is primarily em-

plants and oil refineries, to
cripple the enemy supply line
from within! At 20,000 feet
aloft or higher, crew members
had to deal with minus 30-
degree temperatures and lack
of oxygen in the unheated,
unpressurized aircraft plus
the constant threat of enemy
attacks. Risks were great and
losses were heavy, yet -the
daylight, bombing worked,
and the B-17 was immortal-
ized for its role in the effort.
Some 12,000 were built but
just nine remain in the United
States. The rest were scrapped
after the war for their metal
value.
The B-25 Mitchell was a


smaller twin-engined medi-
um bomber that served in
every theater in World War II.
It was used for low-level
bombing and ground attacks,
in the Pacific and medium
level bombing of. airfields,
train depots and transporta-
tion infrastructure in Europe.
It was best known for its role
in the first retaliatory raid on
Japan after the attack on Pearl
Harbor.
Led by Col. Jimmy Doo-
little, 16 B-25 Mitchells and
their specially trained crews
took the land-based aircraft
off of the aircraft carrier USS
Hornet on April 16, 1942, in
-the frigid Pacific Ocean more


than 600 miles from Japan. It
was a one-way flight for the
crews who were flying on
dwindling fuel supply to relief
bases in non-occupied areas
of China after attacking key
cities in Japan. Though the
crews had to bail out and
none of the planes made it to
those Chinese bases, the raid
was considered a morale
boost for the United States.

he Collings Foundation's Wings of
Freedom planes will return to Venice
this weekend.


Tomorrow, Feb. 2, I will fly
into. Venice Municipal Air-
port, and this time, it won't be,
in a hang glider with world,
champion hang glider Curt
Warren.
Instead I vill be in aWorld
War II plane, either a B-17
Flying Fortress or a B-25
Mitchell. The planes are mak-
ing their annual appearance
on the Collings Foundation
Wings of Freedom Tour to 20
cities in Florida and Georgia.
Those of us lucky enough
to be aboard the flights fling
into Venice will depart from
Venice by car mid-morning
for a drive to Fort Myers
where we will take part in
ground school to learn what
we have to do on board one of
these historic planes. We are
expected to touch down in
Venice about 3 p.m.
Coming with us is Venice

one of the planes last year.

Foundation representative
Charlie Strumpf said to me.
last Friday.
I replied that I was not
planning to bail out.
"Then he can photograph
you manning the machine
guns," he said.
This will be my first time
aboard one of these bigger
planes. My previous flight in a
World War II vintage craft was
aboard the little red Waco
biplane that has wintered in
Venice for several years. That
is. an open-cockpit plane
which does an excellent job of
redesigning one's hairdo.


It took me three days to
unsnarl the results of the that
flight. Barring a bailout, my
hairdo should be fine this
time.
The tour, now in its 16th
year, is a veritable museum
on wings. The aircraft used for
the tour are kept in fully oper-
ational condition and fly from
city to city for display. They
are equipped exactly as they
would have been when they
rolled off the assembly line in
1943, with the original radios,
turrets and machinery need-
ed for- combat flights over
enemy territory.
When the planes are in
Venice for the weekend, visi-
tors will be able to tour
through the planes, touching
and feeling the crew positions
that their parents and grand-
parents might have occupied
during the war. Daily 30-
minute flights aboard the air-
craft also will be offered.
"Only nine B-17s are air-
worthy in the United States
and our B -25 is one of only a
handful flying," founder Bob
Collings said. "The Wings of
Freedom tour is unique for
the fact that these World War
II treasures can jump out of
the history books and come
alive before your eyes, with
you ,actually aloft as a
crewmember."
The B-17 Flying Fortress
was one of the most recogniz-
able bomber aircraft of the
war. Its mission was daylight

tions of hundreds of bombers
would stream to targets like

Risking life on a limb in Idaho


DAVE BARRY
HUMOR COLUMNIST

This classic Dave Barry
column was originally pub-
lished Oct. 30,1994.

There is a simple explana-
tion for why I wound up dan-
gling from a rope 75 feet in the
air over a beaver dam some-
where in Idaho: I was a house
guest.
You know how it is, when
you're a houseguest: If your
host suggests an activity, you,
as a polite person, tend to say
"sure."
My host in this case was
my good friend Ridley
Pearson, who makes his living
writing thriller novels, which
means he spends his days


thinking up sentences like:
"Roger awoke in a dark room
and sensed immediately that
his body had been surgically
removed from his head."
What I'm saying is that
Ridley has some spooky clos-
ets in the mansion of his
mind. This is why I should
have been suspicious when,
the night I arrived at his
house, he casually said, "I
thought that tomorrow we
could climb a tree."
,This struck me as an odd
activity for a couple of guys in
their 40s. Guys our age gener-
ally prefer a more mature
type of recreation, such as
scratching. It was as if Ridley
had said, "I thought that
tomorrow we could play hide
and seek." But I was a house-
guest, so all I said was "sure."
The next morning, we had
breakfast with Ridley's broth-
er, Brad, and a friend named
Amos Galpin, and then the
four of us set off in Ridley's car
to find a tree to climb. This
enabled me to see some of
Idaho (official motto: "No-
body Knows Where It Is"). It's
a nice state, containing a
tremendous quantity of


scenery, as well as several
roads and at least one city
named "Ketchum." The state
license plate says "IDAHO"
on the top, and on the bottom
it says I am not making this
up "Famous potatoes."
Apparently, this was judged to
be the most alluring possible
license-plate slogan, narrow-
ly edging out "Idaho A
whole lot of rocks" and "Idaho
-You'll smell the cows."
Most of Idaho is outdoors,
the result being that local res-
idents are able to enjoy year-
round interaction with the
natural environment, which
gradually drives them insane.
At least that's apparentlywhat.
happened to.Ridley, Brad and
Amos, because they have
turned tree-climbing into a
serious, full-fledged sport,
with special equipment and
everything.
They do not climb just any
tree. We drove past several
million normal, sturdy, verti-
cal trees before stopping at
what had to be the most
unsafe-looking tree in North
America. I could not believe
that the tree authorities even
permitted this tree to exist. It


was next to a beaver pond,
and it was leaning WAY over
at a stark angle, looking as
though it would crash to the
ground if a beetle climbed up
it, let alone four middle-aged
guys who had recently con-
sumed large, omelets.
"Is this tree safe?" I asked
the guys.
"Ha ha!" they reassured
me, They then helped me put.
on the special tree-climbing
,equipment, which they call a
"harness," although what it
looks like is an enormous
green athletic supporter. It
has a pair of 10-foot safety
straps attached to it; the idea
is that you clip these to the
branches as you climb, so
that if you fall, instead of
smashing into the ground'
and getting killed, you fall
only until your safety strap.
becomes taut, at which point
you turn into a human pen-
dulum and slam into the side
of the tree and get killed.
At least that's what I was
thinking as I inched higher
andhigher up the Death Tree.
The other guys seemed obliv-
ious to the danger.
"Look at that viewy!" they'd


remark.
"Huh!" I'd reply, admiring
the scenic vista of the 2
square inches of bark directly
in front of my. face. I hate
heights. I was clinging to this
tree so passionately that I
might very well have commit-
ted an act of photosynthesis
with it. And it did not help my
mood any to know that the
area was infested with beav-
ers.
At any moment, I expected
to hear a tail slapping on the
water, which is the beaver sig-
nal for, "Come quickly! Dorks
in giant jock straps have,
climbed an easy-to-gnaw-
down tree!"
But beavers did not gnaw
down our tree. What hap-
pened was much worse:
When we got near the top of
the tree, Ridley informed me
that we were going to get
down by "rappelling"' a tech-
nique that was invented by
mountain climbers who had
spent lot of time at high alti-
tudes with no oxygen getting
to their brains.
The way rappelling works
is, you close your eyes, jump
out of the tree and slide down


on a slim, unsafe-looking
rope, which is attached to
your harness via a metal fit-
ting that enables you to slide,
WAY faster than would be
possible under the influence
of gravity alone, so that you
reach speeds estimated at 450
mph as you hurtle toward the
ground, crashing through
branches while your fellow
climbers i shout helpful in-
structions that you cannot
hear because you're devoting
all of your mental energy to
sphincter control. At least
that's how I handled it.
All in all, it was an extreme-
ly memorable experience that
I will devote the rest of my life
to trying to forget.
I'm looking forward to the
day when Ridley is my house-
guest, so that I can plan an
equally fun activity for him.
I'm thinking maybe we could
play tag.
With chain saws.

J.J. Andrews
BACK OF THE PACK

For more than a year, Mike
Gippert has been trying to get
me on a bicycle, and every
time he asks I have another
excuse.
My most popular one is,
"Mike, I don't even own a
bike."
One of these times, I'm
going to have to 'fess up and
admit I still need training
wheels, and that's the real rea-
son I've skipped every Trail-
blazers organized bicycle ride.
That doesn't mean bike
riding lacks my'support as a
great way to exercise. In reali-
ty, it's one of the best methods
of physical fitness that also
offers a little fresh air.
I stay away from bicycle
riding because I lack balance
and coordination major
blows to my fragile, shallow
ego. This clumsiness com-
pletely emasculates me to the
point where all I need is a little
pink basket, abell on the han-
dlebars' and an oversized
banana seat to lose all manli-
ness.
But that's my problem, and
it shouldn't take away from
\VP Trailblazers Bike Patrol
turning 1 year old last week. A
neighborhood watch on
\\heels, these volunteers ride
Venice's bike paths helping
those in ,need and providing
assistance where needed, and
Gippert takes care of organiz-
ing the riders.
The program is sponsored
by Venice Area Beautification,
Inc. (VABI), in partnership
with the Venice Police De-
partment and Sarasota Coun-
ty. The, number of volunteer

riders has grown from five
members last January to more
than 50.
The bike patrol rode the
VWP on nearly a daily basis.
Trailblazers also held public
celebrations for Bike Day in
May and National Trails Day
in June.
In 2006 VABI hopes to
expand the presence of the:
patrollers on the VWP and
continue reporting on the use
of the park. Several events are
being planned to promote
healthy and courteous'use of
the trail such as another Back-
to-School Bicycle Safety Day
in August, another Bike Day
in May and Trails Day in June;
a celebration of Florida
Greenways/Waterways/Trails
Month in October, and addi-.
tional rides with the VPD.
Events and programs to reach
out to area senior citizens and
school students are also being
planned.
If.you wish to become a
bike patrol volunteer or vol-
unteer for other service on the
VWr such as the VABI
"Pepper Patrol" which per-
forms all kinds of landscape
and trail enhancements in the
Venice area including on the
VWP go online to vabi.org or
call 488-2236 and ask for
Debbie Luce, administrator
forVABI.
As for me, I'll stick to foot-
powered exercise.
I'd rather run a marathon
than try to steer a bicycle.

Q 1 As South, vulnerable, you
hold:
S 8 295 oJ4 i.KQ1087542

Partner opens the bidding with one no
trump. What do you respond?
A Any time partner has the ace, or
even three low cards, in the suit, you
want to be in three no trump. There
are ways to find out about the ace,
Sbut not about three low cards, so we
would just shoot out three no trump.
Five of the minor would be a good
contract if partner's no trump is rich
in aces and kings.

you hold:

The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST

What action do you take?

A North almost certainly has four
hearts, so we slightly prefer bidding
five hearts to five diamonds.
However, we think the most flexible
action is to bid four no trump, asking
partner to choose between the red
suits. If partner reads the bid as
Blackwood, we would choose anoth-
er partner!

What action do you take?

A Don't even think of bidding
game. East has taken a rash action
and most of the time will be forced
to lead from his hand away from
strength into your side's combined
holding. It should be a bloodbath.

What do you bid now?

A Partner probably doesn't have
much in the way of high cards, but
he does have a fairly good six-card
or longer suit. That gives us a choice
of jumping to four or five clubs.
With the rich game bonus available
at this vulnerability, we opt for the
aggressive jump to game in clubs.
Q 5 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

Your left-hand opponent's opening
bid of four hearts is passed round to
you. What action do you take?
A We don't want to defend four
hearts doubled with this hand, and if
we make a takeout double of four
hearts partner might convert. That
leaves us with just one action a
cue-bid of five hearts.' Partner should
know that we don't need much for
slam.
Q 6 Vulnerable, you hold:
SA'Q98 4 v86 0954 4 Q93

Partner opens the bidding with one no
trump (15-17). What do you respond?
A You want to invite game in
spades or no trump, depending on
partner's holding. Start by bidding
two clubs, the Stayman convention,
and then bid two spades over part-
ner's response, or raise spades
should you hit partner's four-card
major. That shows a hand with 8-9
points and five spades. If you play
transfer bids, transfer with two hearts
and follow up with two no trump.

Best lessons are to




be learned early


Man asked to pay for


s wrongs


LYNN REIFERT
CORRESPONDENT

Too many children suffer
needlessly, during their early
school experiences and
beyond, due to poor parent-
ing practices of very well-
meaning parents.
Parents are a child's first
teachers and have the daunt-
ing responsibility of helping
their children prepare for
happy, healthy and successful
lives. Sometimes, in their
attempts to be good parents,
they unknowingly reinforce
and encourage negative be-
haviors. This can have a last-
ing effect on their child's abil-
ity to learn and to have a
happy life.
Learned helplessness, and
other unproductive habits
instilled at an early age, can
create serious learning prob-
lems in school. Parents must
be ever mindful of their daily
interactions with young chil-
dren in order to prepare them
_ for a successful and emotion-
ally healthy transition from
the home to the school envi-
ronment.
Children who have not yet
learned such skills as self-suf-
ficiency and independence,
patience, respect for adults,
-'sifd ; following directions
in a timely manner, taking
turns and getting along with
peers, and appreciation for
order and structure, risk
falling behind from the very
Start of their education.
Some who have not
learned these skills during the


AFEM


early, most effective learning
time (from birth to age nine)
may struggle in school for
years to come. They may
experience anxiety, low self-
esteem and motivation. They
may be held back while their
peers move forward.
Deficiencies in the afore-
mentioned skill areas can
cause teachers and parents to
suspect that children are
showing signs of having
attention deficit disorder or
ADHD attention deficit with
hyperactivity disorder. Many
times these children are
referred for testing.
Whether or not a neuro-
logical difference such as
ADD or ADHD is present,
which can cause 'learning
these skills to be more diffi-
cult, parents must raise their
expectations and remain con-
sistent, not lower them.
They must step back and
consider how they are in-
structing their children and
be willing to make some life-
altering changes where nec-
essary. They must also be
open to asking for helpful
advice from friends, family,
teachers and other profes-
sionals.
Unfortunately, the longer
parents wait to make adjust-
ments in the way they handle
their children, the more diffi-
cult it will be to instill valuable
skills. However, it is never too
late to make changes for the
better.
Some ways parents can
prepare young children:
Allow children to do
things they are capable of on
their own. When a parent
does everything for the child,
he learns to expect the same
treatment from others. Teach-
ers find the child will not do
any work unless they are sit-
ting right beside them, coax-
ing them. The child is robbed
of the chance to build his
confidence, as well as his self-


sufficiency and indepen-
dence.
Let children speak for
themselves. Do not answer
for them: Encourage them to
reply when spoken to by an
adult. This promotes lan-
guage development, social
skills and respect.
Don't allow a child to
Interrupt adult conversation.
This helps him develop pa-
tience needed when the
teacher is busy helping an-
other child. It also causes him
to have to hold his thoughts,
working his memory.
Be sure the child knows
who is in charge. Giving chil-
dren too much power results
in their insisting on control-
ling others. Children who are
given too many opportunities
to make decisions for them-
selves, without parental guid-
ance (offering acceptable
choices), are not able to take
the suggestions of others.
They waste precious learning
time attempting to manipu-
late parents, teachers and
other children. They are
unhappy when they can't
have things their way and
therefore do not get along
with others.
Model respect. Talking
about other adults teach-
ers and coaches in a nega-
tive way in front of the child,
and allowing the child to do
the same, sends the message
that it is okay for the child to
disrespect adults. This will
have a definite impact on the
child's ability to learn from
other adults.
Expect directions to be
followed when given the first
time. Repeating directions
often before requiring action
reinforces a bad habit of not
listening. Some parents think
they are being good parents
by patiently waiting for chil-
dren to respond, and listening

BYANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

When Dr. Elliot Lefler left
the U.S. to work overseas, he
felt secure leaving his house
on Coco Solo Avenue locked
and empty.
Initially, his sister, who
lives across the street, took
care of the property. From
1996 to 2001, the empty
house was left undisturbed.
In 2002, when Lefler visited
North Port and checked his
property, the house was fine,
he said.
However, within the last
year and a .half, things
changed. Squatters moved
onto the property, leaving
debris including broken fenc-
ing, carpet padding and
abandoned vehicles in the
yard.
Lefler knew nothing of this
until North Port police track-
ed him down at his other
home in Spain, asking per-
mission to enter the home
and remove the invaders.
When Lefler and his wife,
Kate, returned to their home
in October, they were devas-
tated when they saw the con-
dition of their home, they
said.
"I could not believe my
eyes," Kate said. "We had to
scrub the walls three times to
get them clean. The toilets
were full of waste.
"The house. was actually
condemned, and we had to
go through the permitting
process in order to repair our
home."
The Leflers spent more
than $40,000 repairing dam-
age the squatters caused.
And while they were will-
ing to spend that much to fix
the damages, the couple said
they were incredulous when
they realized the city was
seeking more than $30,000 for
multiple code enforcement
violations during the time the


Obligated
Commission Vice Chair
Barbara Gross didn't agree.
"I voted against him be-
cause he was obligated,"
Gross said. "Any property
owner is responsible. The
house was a blight on the
neighborhood, and it was his
responsibility to take care of
his property."
Elliot couldn't believe the
commissioners refused his
request.
"It's an absurd decision,"
he said. "I can't believe people
wouldn't have compassion.
They didn't want to set a
precedent? Of what? That my
house was invaded? If it was
rented and (tenants) had
trashed it, then I would un-
derstand my being responsi-
ble. But when I have squatters
moving into my house and
parking things in my drive-
way, they want me to pay a
fine?"
He plans to do all he can to
have the commission's deci-
sion reversed.
"The onlyway the decision
can be reversed is if one per-
son on the prevailing-side
brings it back (to the commis-
sion) for consideration,"
Lockhart said. "But I wouldn't
be surprised if we didn't have
to spend some money and
have this go before the city
attorney."


trespassers were in the resi-
dence.
"At one point, there were
more than 20 people living
there, with no electricity and
no water," Elliot said. "There
were no utilities hooked up
for four years, so they were
Relieving themselves in the
yard. And from what I under-
stand from my neighbor
across the street, there was
prostitution and drug dealing
going on."
'Joe Smith'
The couple discovered the,
city had been sending multi-
ple letters and notices to the
house, only to have many
returned marked "deceased."
One notice hand-delivered
by city Property Standards
Inspector Stephen Sorrentino
was accepted by a "Joe
Smith," who never responded
to it.
As a result, the cityplaced a
$30,000 lien on the property.
So at a recent city commis-
sion meeting,. Elliot peti-
tioned commissioners for
relief, hoping to have the lien
eliminated.
In a 3-2 vote, with Com-
mission Chair Rue Berryman
and Commissioner Dick
Lockhart dissenting, the com-
mission refused his request,
saying that it would set a
precedent.
If they relieved Elliot of his
debt, commissioners said,
they might have to do the
same in other cases.
Lockhart said he sympa-
thized with Elliot's dilemma.
"He had no control over
what happened," Lockhart
said Tuesday.
"He was an honest guy
who didn't know what was
happening to his property.
(Berryman) and I agree that
this has nothing to do with
setting a precedent. Things
are not always black and
white."

also be compromising their

Incorporate structure and
routine into a child's daily life.
Teach her to put things away
in their places. Set regular
bedtime, mealtimes, etc. This
teaches order and how to fol-
low schedules, both excellent
prerequisite skills for school
and life.
Expect children to take
responsibility for their actions
and to correct their mistakes.
Discourage blaming others

ABBY from Page 8B


Outside of work is another
story. I "forgave" June many
years ago, but I still do not
wish to have her as a friend or
acquaintance. Please tell me
how to get rid of her. I have
considered a restraining
order, but she hasn't done
anything threatening. -
BEING STALKED IN KOKO-
MO
DEAR BEING STALKED:
The next time June approach-
es you outside of work, if you
haven't already done so, tell
her exactly what you have
told me. If that doesn't do the
trick, change your routine -
Sthe places or the hours that
you shop, go for exercise, etc.
If the woman still pursues
you, then do inform the
police that you are being
stalked by someone who
appears to be unbalanced,
Because that may be what the
Woman is, and get it on
record.
S DEAR ABBY: I was .sitting
with a friend today, and we
Began talking about the rising
,., gas prices. After a few min-
Sutes she said, "Why don't
Americans do what they do in
Europe?"
I asked her what that was,
and she told me that
Europeans take a regular day
off from driving which not
only saves gas but also brings
families closer together. What


an excellent idea for people
here in the United States.
I think it is a simple solu-
tion to a growing problem
and could make a huge differ-
ence. Do you think this is pos-
sible? JIM H., NAPLES,
FLA.
DEAR JIM H.: I certainly
do. When people are deter-
mined enough, anything is
possible. We may not be able
to control gas prices, but we
can decide how we want to
spend our money. For those
who need to economize,
walking, riding bicycles, ride-
sharing and public, trans-
portation are sensible solu-
tions.

FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL COLUMNIST

Changing of

the guard

After two years as president
of the Healthcare Volunteers
of Venice, Daneen Schell gave
her gavel to Lorraine Walker
at a breakfast meeting at the
Venice Yacht Club.
"You'll be a hard act to fol-
low," the new president of.the
2006 executive committee
said as she took over.
"Thank you, thank you,
thank you," a grateful Melody
Trimble, CEO of the Venice
Regional Center told the large
group."This is our 1-year
birthday together," she added.
"Thanks for your work in
helping the Venice Regional
Medical Center receive the
HMA Quality Award for the
year."
"You are the largest active,
volunteer group in the com-
pany which has 61 hospitals,"
Melody continued.
"Thank you for bringing
comfort and care to others,"
Gene Burke, director of vol-
unteers told the men and
women. She presented outgo-
ing president Daneen Schell
with a gorgeous crystal candy
jar inscribed with her name
and a box of chocolates.
The party celebrated the
Healthcare Volunteers of Ven-
ice. Many received new name
tags showing their volunteer
hours. Among the recipients
was Dorothy Englemann with
47,000 hours. Dorothywas not
on hand as she was volunteer-
ing.
Everyone who has ever
been with these caring people
knows they are God's angels
on this Earth. If you would like
to join this celestial group, call
Gene Burke at the Venice
Regional Center at 483-7050.
First mate takes over
Ann Thompson and Polly
Skinner exchanged bottles of
wine to mark the new watch
over the first mate's ship at the
Venice Yacht Club as Ann took
over the helm.
Hostesses Suzie Pember-
ton and Judy Rebmann wel-
comed guests and directed
them to see the lovely orchids
for sale by Bill and Susan
Fender.
After lunch Bill taught the
group about orchids. He re-
minded everyone about the
orchid show at the Venice
Community Center Feb. 4-5.
Chef Mark and his crew
outdid themselves in prepar-
ing a delicious mushroom
soup and luscious cream
puffs.
You heard it on TV
Maestro Wesley John
Schumacher and the Venice
Symphony took the audience
on a trip down memory lane
with "The Ballad of Davy
Crockett," "Gillette To Look
Sharp March" and "The Pink
Panther."
Guest soloist Jack Searle
brought a nice touch to the
program as he was the voice of
many TV jingles, dubbing and
voiceovers in commercials.
The standing ovation
showed the audience enjoyed
the trip. Bravo.
One of our best-
The special person of this
week is Healthcare Volunteer
of Venice volunteer Dorothy
Englemann. This wonderful
woman has probably touched
all our lives in some way as she
recorded her 47,000 volunteer
hours with the organization.
It is obvious this lady found
her purpose in life. Dorothy
Englemann.is.one of the terrif-
ic senior citizen volunteers
who helps make Venice great.
