Workshops end; questions remain


Property owners debate the future
of East Venice Avenue despite doubt in the minds
of some that it will make any difference.


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR


, Despite repeated reassur-
ances, some participants in
the East Venice Avenue
Planning Initiative still aren't
sure the county was listening,


or that it will do anything to
protect their interests.
And those doubts seemed
to be as much in the minds
of the people who are ready
to sell and make way for
subdivisions as it was among
those who would like to


restrict development.
The area in question is
bounded by Jacaranda Boul-
evard to the west, River Road
to the east, Interstate 75 to
the north and East Venice
Avenue to the south. It's
under a rezoning moratori-
um that expires next month.
Most of it is currently
zoned Open Use Estate 1,
Which allows no more than
one house per 5 acres. Only
Open Use Rural, at one unit


Last autumn, federal authorities toured the
proposed project site and filed reports.
They described extensive habitat destruction
and wrote letters opposing the project.

per 10 acres, is less dense.
On the other hand, some
county zoning classifications
allow as many as 5.5 single-
family dwelling units per
acre, making even a 5-acre
parcel valuable for develop-
ment if it gets rezoned.
Though county represen-
tatives stressed the area's
future remains undecided,
some participants said they

"The state's list of questions
is down from about 20 pages
to seven, while the Army
Corps just sent us its first
request for responses. We
want to negotiate all compo-
nents with these agencies at
the same time."
No worries
Last November, federal
authorities notified the
county they will oppose the
issuance of permits for a
project to restore Midnight
Pass because of the adverse
environmental impact it
would have on Little Sarasota
Bay and adjacent beaches.
Erickson said that county
officials and residents should
not be misled by letters that
were based on the receipt
of only nine drawings and a
1-1/2-page description of
the proposed project that
prompted a walk-through
inspection of the project
site.
"The letter sent by the
U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers was procedural," she
explained. "It disagreed with

A Sarasota County consul-
tant hired to restore the
Midnight Pass coastal inlet
between Siesta Key and Cas-
ey Key gave a pep talk to
about 150 enthusiasts last
week and told them not to
worry about early reports
that federal authorities op-
pose the project.
"We are moving in the
right direction and making
progress," environmental
engineer Karyn Erickson
told the Pelican Cove audi-
ence. "It is rare to hear bless-
ings about such a project.
Our goal is to reach the con-
struction phase. It takes a lot
of patience."
Midnight Pass became
unstable in the 1970s and
was closed in 1983 with the
county commission's per-
mission after it migrated
northward and threatened to

undermine two expensive
Siesta Key beachfront homes.
Its demise spawned a com-
munity debate that is still
unresolved.
In November 2004, Erick-
son mailed off permit appli-
cations to federal and state
officials that describe how a
dredging project that re-
moves 360,000 cubic yards
of sand from what is now
Midnight Beach would re-
store the former inlet and
help clean up Little Sarasota
Bay
The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
has moved ahead with a
question-and-answer evalua-
tion process that is now in
its third phase, but the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers has
fallen well behind because
of last summer's catastroph-
ic hurricanes.
"We've slowed the process
down with the state so the
feds can catch up," she said.

Venice has finally found a
new finance director.
And it only took 18 months.
In a memo to city council,
Mayor Dean Calamaras an-
nounced that Jeffery Snyder,
director of fiscal operations
for Lubbock, Texas, has ac-
cepted the job.
"The city manager, city
attorney and I have complet-
ed negotiations and are com-
pleting contract preparation
to secure Jeff Snyder as the
city's new finance director,"
Calamaras wrote in the Feb.
2 memo.
Snyder's starting salary as
finance director will be
$108,000. City council will
vote Feb. 14 on the contract's
terms, and if approved, Sny-
der will start Feb. 27.
If Snyder is hired, this
would end a tumultuous
search for a finance director
to replace Mike McPhail,
who retired in June 2004. One
replacement quit without
notice after only a few weeks
on the job, and it was later
discovered he had never


resigned the position he sup-
posedly left to come to Ven-
ice. His replacement with-
drew his name from consid-
eration after it was learned he
failed to disclose a personal
bankruptcy arid the city's
search firm never turned it up
during its background check
of him.
On top of all that, Venice
City Council created a Charter
Review Committee to consid-
er eliminating the finance
director's status as a charter
officer and making the per-
son report directly to the city
manager. Venice is one of only
two Florida cities that sepa-
rates the city manager's office
from the finance director's
office as a form of checks and
balances.
Deputy Finance Director
JoAnne Lounsbury has been
acting finance director for 18
months. Council has blamed
the long delay in finding a top
financial officer on starting
salary and charter officer sta-
tus.

Snyder's home in Lubbock for

Artificial reef


survey gets approval


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

The questions of who
goes to the various artificial
reefs in the Gulf of Mexico
and how they affect the local
economy will be answered
in a comprehensive analysis
spurred by the West Coast
Inland Navigation District.
. The district board met
Friday and approved the
analysis that will include the
four member counties (Sara-
sota, Charlotte, Lee and Man-
atee), as well as Collier,
Hillsborough and Pinellas
counties.
Chris Koepfer, Lee Coun-
ty's artificial reef coordinat-
or, told the board that re-
cent outbreaks of red tide
and frequent hurricanes have
adversely affected the reefs
in a variety of ways.
"Finding out the economic
impacts is an important part
of the process," Koepfer said.
"The state of Florida is inter-
ested in learning their value

as well."
The analysis will docu-
ment recreational and com-
mercial uses of the reefs
throughout the region.
Artificial reefs are sub-
merged, man-made struc-
tures such as sunken boats
whose only treasure is the
sea life they nurture in the
salty depths.
In many cases, the sub-
* merging was accidental, re-
sulting from stormy seas. In
other cases, barges and ships
that have outlived their use-
fulness have been purposely
dropped where their hulls
can shelter fish and crus-
taceans. Some artificial reefs
were railroad cars in an earl-
ier life.
Money and jobs
A study done in Martin
County on Florida's east coast
in 2003 showed that artificial
reefs there generated $13.1
million in revenue and pro-

Bafalis moves to speed 1-75 construction


STAFF REPORT

Action has been taken in
Congress to encourage the
use of emergency job assis-
tance money for construction
of 1-75 along Florida's South-
west coast.
Efforts to utilize those
funds were started locally
1whenVenice area resident J.L.
(Count) Cornwell suggested


those- moneys be used for
road construction "instead of
planting petunias around the
courthouse."
The emergency job act of
1974 provides money for con-
gress to create jobs for the
unemployed.
Cornwell was critical of
past programs, saying work
was often found in unessen-
tial areas. He claimed skilled


labor could be employed to
speed construction of 1-75.
His suggestions were for-
warded to Congressman LA.
(Skip) Bafalis for action. Un-
der the act, Florida delegates
to Congress in both the'
House and Senate must initi-
ate efforts to use those funds.
Bafalis responded imme-
diately by contacting Gover-
nor Norbet Tiemann, admin-
istrator of the Federal High-
way Administration.


Bafalis told Tiemann the
job act specifically provides
for speeding up of construc-
tion in areas with unusually
high levels of unemployment.
He reminded Tiemann of
the urgent need to complete
the highway, based on past
discussions..
"I have been informed by
the Florida Transportation
Builders Association that no
j fewer than 6,000 employees
of member firms have ben


Regrettably, Tropical Bob
must focus on two "bad news"
items.
First, that Yankee ground-
hog named Phil popped up
this past week and saw his
shadow, so we're in for six
more weeks of winter. Who
needs it?
More important, the, Na-
tional Oceanic and Atmos-.
pheric Administration an-
nounced a La Nina has form-
ed in the Pacific. La Nina is a
condition of cooling Pacific
waters. For our area, La Nina
brings a dry spring followed by
a summer of more frequent
and stronger Atlantic hurri2
canes.
"I have the same concerns
that everybody else has," the


laid off because' of lack of
funds for highway construc-
tion contracts," Bafalis said.
Cornwell said he hoped
other government officials,
senators and congressmen,
would follow Bafalis' lead in

Historic Apartment District may get another condo


A rezoning application heads
to the planning commission Tuesday.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR
The latest proposal to re-
.develop Venice's Historic
Apartment District will ap-
pear before Venice planning
Commission at 1:30 p.m.
Tuesday.
Staff has recommended
approval for the rezoning
request, contingent upon
developer Kevin Ward agree-
ing to specific height and
setback restrictions.
Ward also held a com-
munity meeting Friday for
neighborhood residents to
catch their first glimpse of
the project and provide in-
put. Some residents were
unhappy with his other de-
velopment in the apartment
district because of its four-
story height, massing and the
fact it displaced 14 workforce
housing rental units with
nine million-dollar condo-
miniums.
The current project, called
Kelley's Way, would rezone 1.3
acres of land. along Park
Boulevard, Menendez Street
and Palmetto Court from mod-
erate density (maximum of 13
units an acre) to maximum
density (18 units per acre). Staff
recommend that height be
restricted to four stories, and
residential rules for setbacks
and massing be applied.
Addresses affected include
225 Park Blvd., 528 Menendez
St., and 454, 456 and 458
Palmetto Court. All existing
buildings are one story and
include 10 apartment units,
three duplexes and a home.

In the 1920s, original city
planner John Nolen mapped
out the apartment district
for workforce and rental
housing that encompasses
the area bordered by Gra-
nada Road, Harbor Drive,,
Armada Road and Park
Boulevard, according to the
historical rparker at John
Nolen Park.1 By 1928, there
were 11 apartment buildings
along Menehdez and Arma-
da, and nearly every one of
them remain operating as
rental housing.
None of the buildings slat-
ed for demolition is consid-
ered historical, despite being
within the apartment district.

investor ot satisfedin viaticalaeresu ls


BY GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER

The Securities and Ex-
change Commission has
reached settlement agree-
ments to make the top execu-
tives of Mutual Benefits Corp-
oration pay millions of dollars
in fines and "disgorge" their
ill-begotten gains in a death-
benefits investment scheme.
The settlements still leave
59,000 investors in the corpo-
ration's so-called "viatical" in-
vestments holding empty
bags for their nearly $1 billion
in investments.
They include at least two
area residents who say they
aren't satisfied with the out-
come.
Ron Gillis of Venice and
Garry Brandt of Rotonda said
Tuesday they'll be lucky to
see 10 cents on the dollar for
their investments, despite
claims by their broker that
"nobody has ever lost any
money" on viatical invest-
ments.
"I think it's, a crime, an
absolute crime," Brandt said.
"The product was totally
misrepresented, and some-
body ought to be held
accountable."


The investment
A viatical is an investment
in which investors buy shares
in the life insurance policies
of terminally ill patients.
The investments are pur-
chased, usually through a
broker, from a "viatical pro-
vider" such as Mutual Ben-
efits Corporation. The pro-
vider pays the insurance pre-
miums for the patients.
The investments allow the
patients, who are known as
viatorss," to receive a lump
sum for their insurance poli-
cies before they die.
The price of the viatical is
based on the life expectancy
of the viator, which is deter-
mined by a physician.
Once the patient dies, the
life insurance policy pays the
viatical provider, which then'
distributes a percentage of
the proceeds to' the investors.
MBC became the target of
dozens of complaints that the
vast majority of its viators had
outlived their life expectan-
cies. That left investors still
waiting for payoffs years later.
Investigators also have
alleged that the company's
medical doctor misrepresent-
ed material facts in estimat-
ing the life expectancies of


the viators.
Gillis, for example, said he
bought $10,000 in viatical
investments on two AIDS
patients in 1997. One patient
died, but the other disap-
peared for a period of years.
.The viator was apparently
located in another state, but
has since refused to cooper-
ate Arith MBC representatives
seeking information about
his health. Gillis said.
"So no one knows whether
he has AIDS or not because
the doctor who said he has
AIDS went to jail," Gillis said.
When the company sold
him the invesunents, he was-
told the xiators were expected
to live only six months to a
year, Gillis said.
The settlement
The Securities & Exchange
Commissiofi placed MBC
into receivership in May 2004.
A trial was set to begin Oct.
31, but was canceled after
several of the corporation's
top officers agreed to settle
out of couit.
Under the settlements, the
company's former president,
Peter Lombardo, agreed to
pay the SEC $6 million,
including a $120,000 fine and


$5.8 million in "disgorge-
ment."
Also, MBC executives Joel
and Leslie Steinger, who are
brothers, agreed to pay $9
million each. The agree-
ments also forbid the execu-
tives from misrepresenting
investments or selling securi-
ties in the future.
rHowever, the; payments
will do little to offset the loss-
es of investors. In fact, the
court receiver filed a motion
in December to temporarily
block the settlements.
The receiver, Roberto
Martinez, said the settlement
orders lifted a freeze on the
defenIdants' bank accounts.
That; would allow the defen-
dants to withdraw additional
assets that potentially could
be seized to pay back in-
vestors, the receiver argued.,
"The receiver has been
contacted by a number of
banks that the Steingers have
already sought to close out
their existing accounts,"
Martinez wrote in his motion.
Drywell
Among the losers is one
investment group, identified
as the Ynals Corp. of Colom-
bia. However, the govern-


ment doesn't view the group
as a victim.
The group had invested
$169,000 in a $4 million life
insurance policy that "matur-
ed" with the viator's death.
However, the government,
seized the funds, saying the
money for the investment
"represents the proceeds of
narcotics trafficking, making
the policy and its associated
death benefits subject to for-
feiture," according to the re-
ceiver's court records.
Martinez has authorized
payments from MBC's frozen
assets to pay the premiums
on the insurance policies and
the legal costs for the corpo-
ration.
Some 42 law firms are list-
ed as involved in the case.
In a Sept. 14 order, Miami
U.S. District Court Judge
Federico Moreno concluded
that MBC doesn't have
enough cash to continue pay-
ing the premiums much
longer.
On Jan. 13, the court gave
investors three options:
consent to selling their
shares through an auction
process.
assume responsibility for.
paying the premiums that


MBC was obligated to pay.
allow the investments to
"lapse."
Gillis said he questions
whether it's ethical to sell his
shares, considering that his
viator has refused to cooper-
ate with MBC representatives.
Brandt also said even ifvia-
tors die, the receiver will seize
most of the funds to pay the
bills of the corporation until
the case is res61lved.
As a result, he. expects no
investor would be willing to
pay more than:"5 to 10 cents
on the dollar."
Gillis said he could chal-
lenge both the legality of his
investment and the fairness
of the settlement options, but
the cost of litigation "would
throw good money after bad."
"I'm sick for so many peo-
ple being hurt and I'm sick
the only people that benefit-
ed are the people who sold
these illegal investments and
the attorneys that sucked the
well dry," he said. More pros-
ecutions could come in the
future.
Attempts to contact both
receiver Martinez and Linda
Schmidt, lead attorney for the
SEC, for comment were un-
successfulTuesday .


CITY NOTES


Mayor: County'reneged
on its promises'

Challenges by Sarasota
County to city developments
in North Venice have drawn
the anger of Mayor Dean
Calamaras. %
The mayor, accuses the
county of misleading the city
to obtain 554 acres for a
county park, and then going
back on its promise to sup-
port the private property
owner's development on the
remaining 279 acres.
This North Venice location
Just off of Knights Trail Road is
,to be the new home of the
concrete plants next to the


island, Intracoastal Waterway
and Historic Train Depot, and
Calamaras led the effort to
make the relocation deal go
through.
"(Sarasota) County has
reneged on its promise to the
city and the property owner
to support the relocation of
the (concrete) plants from the
Intracoastal Waterway to the
Knights Trail area," Calamar-
as wrote to county commis-
sioners. "Concerns raised by
county staff... at this late date
in the process are unaccept-
able."
A story in Friday's V'enice
Gondolier Shin revealed how
county staff filed formal chal-


lenges with the state against
five North Venice projects,
and did not give the city any
advance warning.
County staff has since
apologized, saying it was an
oversight, and that "it was not
our intent to blindside any-
one," wrote Sarasota County
Planning Director Anne
McClung. The challenges are
expected to delay the North
Venice projects by several
months, according to City
Manager Marty Black.
The mayor is referring to
the nearly 279 acres owned by
JAPAC, Venice Minerals, MI-,
ami Valley Ready Mix and
CEMEX in the northeast


quadrant of the city, north of
Laurel and Knights Trail. Ven-
ice assisted the county in June
2004 by delaying annexation
so Sarasota County could
finalize a land deal of 554
acres. Calamaras has serious
doubts about offering that
help again. "I will have seri-
ous reservations about rely-
ing upon county assurances
in the future based on these
most recent actions," Cala-
maras wrote.

'Dive into the Past' at History
Center's Little Salt Spring exhibit
Visitors to the Sarasota County History Center can explore the
past by viewing ancient artifacts in the new exhibit, "Dive into
the Past: An Exhibit on the Little Salt Spring Archaeological
Site." The exhibit opens Saturday, Feb. 4, and will remain on
'display through Friday, May 26.
The exhibit includes artifacts recovered from the North Port
spring over the past decade, including projectile points and
shell tools. Many of the artifacts from the spring have been
loaned for the exhibit by the University of Miami. The display
will also include fossils and artifacts found at other sites through-
out the county.
Little Salt Spring was occupied over 10,000 years ago by
Paleo-indians. Evidence recovered from the spring indicates
that the site was an important one, used for short-term hunting
and habitation. Informational panels will help the visitor under-
stand the exhibit by providing an introduction to the fields of
archaeology and underwater archaeology, the Paleo and
Archaic traditions in Florida, environmental conditions at Little
Salt Spring and underwater archaeology at the spring.
The History Center is located at 701 N. Tamiami Trail,
Sarasota. The exhibit is on display during the center's regular
hours 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 9 a.m.
to 1 p.m. Saturday.
For more information contact the Sarasota County Call Center
at (941) 861-5000 and ask about the Little Salt Spring exhibit,

Audubon publication blasts county for seawalls


The article describes seawalls and other harden-
ing along one-third of the county's coastline.


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

One of the country's most
prestigious wildlife protec-
tion organizations has lashed
out at Florida in general -
and Sarasota County in par-
ticular for "backward"
beach management policies
that discourage endangered
sea turtles from coming
ashore to nest.
In its current edition,
Audubon magazine features
an article entitled"Hit The
Beaches" that both praises
the Caribbean Conservation
Corporation in Gainesville as
the world's oldest sea turtle
protection organization and
rips Sarasota County for its


permissive policy on sea-
walls.
"Because Florida beaches
sustain 90 percent of the
nation's sea turtle nesting,"
reporter Ted Williams stated,
"it's imperative the state have
especially enlightened poli-
cies for beach management
and coastal development. In-
stead, it has the most back-
ward in the nation."
According to Williams,
Sarasota County "provides a
vignette of what's happening
statewide" by permitting the
construction of seawalls
along one-third of its 35-mile
coastline, and helping to sus-
tain the $200 million-a-year
Florida seawall industry.
"Floridians have a legal


right to laterally traverse the
sandy beaches of the state,"
Williams writes. "When state
and county bureaucrats allow
a seawall, they are sacrificing
a public beach for the express
benefit of private property
owners and developers."
The article also describes
"beach renourishment" pro-
jects such as the one pro-
posed for South Siesta Key -
as "a euphemism for making
a fake beach" that allows huge
dredges to "strip-mine sand"
from the Gulf of Mexico floor
and destroy marine species.
'A billion dollars in federal,
state and municipal funds
has been spent in Florida for
fake beaches," the article
states, "and 90 percent of
these fake beaches have
washed away within five
years. It's as if you dumped 5
feet of dry, gritty dirt on your


front yard."
Deserved
Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton described the heavy criti-
cism leveled on Sarasota
County by Williams as "re-
grettably deserved" and said a
600-foot sea-
wall the com-
mission re-
cently per- i s
mitted on
Casey Key is '
the last one
he will ever
vote for.
He also
described a Thaxton
recent
attempt by commissioner
Nora Patterson and himself to
amend the county's compre-
hensive plan by prohibiting
permits for the construction
of any more seawalls.


"We failed on a vote of 3-
2," he said, "but we tried."
The balance of Williams'
article deals in large part with
the late Dr. Archie Carr and
others who founded the
Caribbean Conservation Cor-
poration in 1959 to protect
sea turtles through research,
habitat protection and public
education.
A 20.5-mile stretch of
beach near Melbourne was
named the Archie Carr Na-
tional Wildlife Refuge after
the University of Florida pro-
fessor, who died in 1987. It is
reported to be "far and away"'
the most important sea turtle
nesting area in the United
States.
In 1997, Sarasota County
adopted a sea turtle protec-
tion ordinance and embarked
on a public education pro-
gram to reduce security light-


ing along beaches during. the
turtle nesting season. It was
amended in 2003 to prohibit
overnight beach furniture.
County beaches annually
have the highest percentage
of sea turtle nests on Florida's
west coast.
Females swim thousands
of miles to lay eggs in the
warm sand.
Many baby turtles are
eaten by natural predators,
and only about one out of
every 2,500 survives to reach
adulthood.
To increase public aware-
ness, the county publishes
educational materials that
provide tips about how to
protect sea turtles. They
describe a prohibition on
night security lights that can
disorient baby turtles and
lead them away from the
water's edge.


Massachusetts ruling could influence coastal areas


A state high court upholds right of local govern-
ments to deny permits for coastal homes. Recent
hurricanes have forced many communities to
reconsider coastal construction.


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


A recent Massachusetts
Supreme Court decision that
affirms the authority of local
governments to prohibit resi-
dential construction in flood-
prone coastal areas could in-
fluence future land-use deci-
sions in Sarasota County and
other Southwest Florida com-
munities.
The ruling last summer is
of particular interest to deveP


opers and investors because
it states that governments do
not have to compensate pro-
perty owners for being unable
to build a waterfront home,
so long as there are "alterna-
tive income-producing", uses
for the land.
In 1985, the town of Chat-
ham created Coastal Con-
servancy Districts along the
Atlantic Ocean, which the
high court deemed a "legiti-
mate state interest" because
homes threatened by natural


disasters could unduly en-
danger rescue workers and
neighbors.
While the decision is only
binding in Massachusetts, it
could have a effect on future
land-use restrictions in other
coastal jurisdictions such
as Florida especially in the
wake of costly storms that
killed residents and resulted
in property claims for billions
of dollars.
'A case like this could be
cited as an example," said
Alan Roddy, Sarasota attorney
and former assistant Sarasota
County attorney. "It would
not be controlling in a Florida
court, but it could be persua-
sive after all the hurricanes,
floods and wind damage."


Preservation
Chatham's zoning codes
restrict new development in
coastal floodplain areas des-
ignated by the Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency.
Existing structures can be
repaired, and special permits
obtained for piers,, boathous-
es and marina-related struc-
tures.
Among the town's justifica-
tions for establishing Coastal
Conservancy Districts were
the preservation of ground-
water supplies, protection of
fish and shellfish, and safe-
guarding people and proper-
ty from natural disasters such
as flooding.
Sarasota County routinely
has to deal with applications


to build barrier island homes
along the Gulf of Mexico
shoreline, which the federal
government has designated
as a floodplain and the coun-
ty's comprehensive plan rec-
ognizes as a high hazard area.
There is a landmark feder-
al case that safeguards
against property rights seiz-
ures by local governments
that deny building permits. In
1992, the U.S. Supreme Court
ruled in Lucas v. South
Carolina that barring con-
struction on beachfront lots
renders them useless and,
therefore, owners must be
. paid compensation.
The precedent-setting case
always comes up when the
county considers applica-


tions to build seaward of
Beach Road on Siesta Key,
especially when the platted
lots are located on the gulf
side. An unimproved road
known as Tenacity Lane is
seaward of and parallel to
Beach Road.
100-percent rule
While attorneys for the
plaintiff in Gove v. Chatham
argued that denial of building
permits amounted to a legal
taking, the Massachusetts
high court determined Lucas
v. South Carolina only applies
when the value of property is
100 percent diminished.
In 2004, the county wres-

the tide of rezoning for devel-
opment. The question for
those who want to sell is how
to take advantage of it; for
those planning to stay, it's
how not to get taken advan-
tage of.
"I'm getting to the point
where I'm ready to sell my
land and move elsewhere,
because I see what's com-
ing," said Tom Coulombe, a
property owner.
Contractor' Allen Duyn,
who also lives in the area and
has no plans to sell, was
equally skeptical what rezon-
ing would mean for his more
rural way of life.
"Are they going to protect
it now," he asked, "or are
they going to wait until it's
gone and throw up fences
around a few acres?"
During a break, property
owner Max Clark was even
more blunt with county
commissioner Shannon
Staub.
"Who trusts you (the


commission) to do what we
want?" he asked.
New day
Whether they're selling or
staying, the property owners
agreed on what they want: to
protect the environmental,
recreational, esthetic and
historical assets of their
community. That was the
top priority on 23 of the 31
participant surveys turned in
at the workshop.
Priorities for new commu-
nities included diversity in
housing; master planning at
the block level; and putting
infrastructure in place before
development.
At least one participant
wondered why they were
asked their preferences in
wall styles and garage place-
ment when there are larger
issues to deal with.
"What's going to happen
when you turn the faucet
on?" she asked. "That's more
important than what color
your wall's going to be."


"I've already told some of
you I've made some bad deci-
sions," Staub said. "I don't
think this county commission
... will let things get behind
again. It's a new day as far as
I'm concerned and this com-
mission is concerned."
She urged everyone to
attend the county planning
commission meeting to be
held in Venice March 2 to
review the results of the plan-
ning initiative and discuss
potential development stip-
ulations.
In particular, she suggest-
ed people with similar inter-
ests band together to find
strength in numbers.
"We can start to look at
areas that want to change and
those that don't," she said.
In her conversation with
Clark, Staub made it clear she
feels a personal stake in the
outcome of the planning ini-
tiative.
"I don't want a legacy of
losing this to a hodgepodge of
development," she told him.

SNYDER from Page lA


comment. City Manager
Marty Black said he's been
hard to reach this week
because Snyder was called in
for jury duty.
Committed
Snyder earns nearly
$98,000 a year in Lubbock.
His duties include oversee-
ing accounting, payroll,
grants and bond repayment
management of more than
$30 million in debt, accord-
ing to his resume.
Snyder was Lubbock's
chief accountant in 2003-04,
and accounting manager for
Spokane County in Washing-
ton from 1999-2002.
He obtained his master's
degree in business adminis-
tration from Western Wash-
. ington University in 1993,
and his bachelor's degree
from the University of Mon-,


tana in 1987.
Because of the city's track
record the past 18 months,
personal character was a
significant factor in this job
search.
Black believes Snyder
plans on being in Venice for
a long time.
So no quitting after only
five weeks on the job, no
bankruptcy skeletons in his
closet and no skipping town
for a higher salary after only
a year or two on the job.
Tack that onto his audit-
ing and CPA experience, and
Black said Snyder is the right
fit for Venice.
"He is very committed to
come here," Black said. "He'd
be here sooner if we could
get it approved sooner."

In 1988, the county sub-

'80s and '90s," Erickson said.

Wal-Mart donates to be good neighbor


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Feb. 1 marked the start of
Wal-Mart's fiscal year, and
with it the corporation's an-
nual giving program.
Stores in Osprey and Ven-
ice, as well as the rest of the
country, have begun gather-
ing information from com-
munity organizations that ap-
ply for financial assistance.


The opening of the store in
Osprey last October provided
the impetus for disbursement
of gifts totalling $31,000 to 24
nonprofit organizations in the
area. The total outlay in 2006 is
expected to be in the $25,000
range, according to Osprey
Store Manager John P Wieber.
He said that additional grants
are scheduled throughout the
year coinciding with special
store events and holidays.


"Wal-Mart was invited into
the community of Osprey,"
Wieber recalled. '"As a conse-
quence, we want to do right
by this area. It's bur way of
becoming involved as good
corporate citizens."
Typical of the 2005 grants
were two for $1,000 each. The
Venice-Nokomis Rotary Club
was awarded a grant to sup-
port its Investment In Youth
program. More than 80


youngsters participating in
an after-school homework
assistance program conduct-
ed by the Laurel Civic Asso-
ciation benefited from the
second grant.
Budgets for community
grants are based on the sales
volumes of individual stores,
according to Wieber.
The program is directed by
the Wal-Mart Foundation in
Bentonville, Ark.


Fisher sets stage for live auction


BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR


Neither a slight nod of the
head nor a tug on the ear
will buy you a lot during the
live lot auction on Feb. 28.,
said Louis Fisher, CEO of
Fisher Auction Co. Inc.
His company is managing
the auction of nearly 2,000
lots for Sarasota County and
the city of North Port.
Fisher held, another work-
shop Tuesday evening to
explain the North Port lot
auction procedures. Unlike
some earlier workshops
Fisher staged, this one was
attended by only a handful
of people.
Fisher first noted "every-
one was pleased" with the
results of the Session 1 auc-
tion. That session, which ran
from Jan. 19-26, allowed
qualified bidders to buy lots
online in an eBay-style auc-
tion. Fisher said more than
9,500 bids were placed during
the first week.
Fisher acknowledged there
was a.glitch the last morning
of Session 1. As closing
times approached for the first
group of lots, people trying
to place last-minute bids
apparently overloaded the.
servers where the online auc-
tions are hosted. As a result,
many people were unable to
get online to place bids.
"We knew right away
there was a problem," Fisher


said. "We called immediately
and got a dedicated (comput-
er) server within 13 minutes."
Fisher also said because of
the glitch, bidding on several
of the lots was extended an
additional 15 minutes.
Fisher said he is confident
now that a similar problem
will not happen with this
.auction. The second session:
of bidding opened on Mon-
day and will close Feb. 6.
Only 77 of the 1,155 lots
in Session 1 were not sold.
They will join 480 lots slated
to be sold online in Session.
2. Any lots remaining from
that round will be up for
grabs, along with 495 more
to be offered in a third on-
line auction Feb. 10-20.
Any unsold lots from the
three online sessions will be
offered in a live auction Feb.
28. The live auction will be
held at the North Port Per-
forming Arts Center.
Fisher explained that
anyone who wants to place
a bid at the live auction
must register and must sub-
mit $5,000 for each lot they
plan to bid. Unlike the
online sessions in the last
auction, the lots will be
aggregated in groups of five
or more. Generally, lots near
each other will be grouped
together. Bidders will not be.
able to pick which lots
will be placed in which
groups.
"When you register for the


live auction, you will be given
a bidder number," Fisher
said. "You can hold up that
bidder number to place a bid
on a group of lots. We will
not be looking for subtle
signals like a slight nod. You
will need to hold up your
number so it can be seen."
Fisher added there will be
assistants in the audience to
-ensure that everyone's bid is
recognized.
"We expect this bidding
to take place very. quickly,"
Fisher said. '"It will be inter-
esting just to come and see,
even if you are not bidding.
I expect -each group of lots
to be sold in about two
minutes. If the bidding
starts at 7 p.m., we'll probably
be done by 8:30 or so."
During the live auction,
when a successful bidder
wins a group of lots, he or
she will sign a memorandum
right there., Fisher said peo-
ple will be at tables with all
the necessary paperwork.
Buyers will sign one contract
for the entire group of lots
bought, but individual clos-
ing documents will be pre-
pared for each separate lot.
As with the online auctions,
any bidder who fails to close
on the lots he or she won
will forfeit the $5,000-per-lot
payment..m"u .'og 'Sn,
"There will still be one
more sale after this one. That
is the sale of the 223 'red'
scrub jay lots that were pulled


out of the current auctions,"
Fisher said.
The red lots are those that
have been designated as
having prime scrub jay hab-
itat. The scrub jay is a threat-
ened species whose presence
can interfere with the ability
to build on property.
There are also six lots that
were supposed to have been
in the online auction for
Session 3. However, the coun-
ty learned that scrub jays
have been observed on those
six lots, and removed them
from the online auction.
Whether they will be includ-
ed in the later sale is un-
known.
Fisher said that these lots
may be sold in March, along
with any other lots that
remain unsold.
Sarasota County took
possession of the lots when
the owners failed to keep
up with tax payments. The
county and North. Port
agreed to split the net pro-
ceeds of the sale of the lots,
with 45 percent going to
the county and 55 percent
to the city. The county has
already said it will apply
some of its share toward
affordable housing. North
Port has not yet said what
it plans to do with the
fuids. '. "'' o.

Volunteers keep Sarasota County's wheels timing


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

County government in
Sarasota is big business.
With a budget for Fiscal
Year 2006 of just under $1 bil-
lion and more than 2,275
employees at the end of 2005,
the county operates an ex-
pansive program.
Consider: it owns and
maintains 2,230 miles of
roadway, 430 miles of side-
talks and 123 bridges, of
which four are drawbridges.
Repairing potholes on county
roads in 2005 used up 140
tons of asphalt.
Its six business centers -
the result of reorganization
steps taken since 1997, when
County Administrator Jim
Ley reduced the number of
managers and departments
- administer a wide variety
of matters affecting all county
residents. They include: air
quality and pollution control;
victim assistance; mortgage
foreclosures; jury duty; life-


guards; hunting and fishing
licenses; elections; libraries;
and landfills.
The school board runs
nine high schools, 10 middle
schools, 22 at the elementary
level, seven charter schools,
six second-chance schools
and four magnet programs.
Suppose you've a question
about a specific county ser-
vice, and your ability to speak
English is limited, or nonexis-
tent. The county will provide
an answer if you telephone a
call center at 861-5000. It pro-
vides the services of inter-
preters of 150 languages with-
in 45 seconds, according to
Debbie Campbell of the
county.
But as big as it is, Sarasota
county couldn't manage to do
this much and more without
the help of residents who
serve on its 104 advisory
boards and committees. An
estimated 200,000 volunteer
hours were recorded last year
by residents working with
county staffers, assisting,


counseling and helping to
coordinate projects under-
taken by county offices.
Fresh pair of eyes
Jo Hanson and Thomas
Walker, both residents of Os-
prey, typify the degree of pro-
fessionalism the 'county can
call upon from volunteers.
Both are members of the
Water and Sewage Advisory
Committee.
Both are engineers. Walker
still works at it, owning and
operating TCW Engineering
in Venice. Hanson is retired.
They were appointed to
the committee 12 months
ago, joining seven others. All
but chairwoman Judith A.
Johnson, also of Osprey, are
active or retired engineers.
The committee was estab-
lished in 1995 by a resolution
of the Board of County
Commissioners, which it-
assists by putting together
rules, regulations and poli-
cies.
Typically, meetings are


scheduled monthly by the
chair, who also sets the agen-
da. Just a few months ago,
members reviewed the utili-
ties portion of the county's
revised comprehensive plan,
according to Paula Parsons
Grubb of the Public Utilities
Department.
"We try to recruit people
with engineering experience
and expertise for this com-
mittee. They complement the
skills of our paid engineering
staff," she pointed out.
Hanson replied to a news-
paper advertisement of a
vacancy on the committee.
An environmental engineer
for 21 years with Monsanto
Corporation in St. Louis, she
designed waste treatment
plants there, and in Everett,
Mass., and Anniston, Ala.
"With my background in
wastewater treatment and
water supply," she said, "I
thought I might be helpful
when I moved here after retir-
ing in 1997. A fresh pair of
eyes perhaps could con-


tribute to my new hometown,
I thought."
Her appointment followed
completion of Civics 101, the
citizens academy conducted
by the county twice each year.
A learning forum, it helps res-
-idents become familiar with
the workings of county gov-
ernment.
Kathleen (Casey) Pilon of
the county Neighborhood
Office, who conducts the
course, describes it as a "tool
box" of information.
"It helps residents navigate
through our system of opera-
tions and services," she said.
Pushing water
Walker has resided in the
area for 20 years.
In that time, representing
an international environ-
mental engineering company
and his own firm, he has
worked on water manage-
ment projects for the state,
cities and counties.
"Pushing water through
pipes and treating it have


been uppermost in my mind
since the early 1980s," he said.
"That experience prompted
volunteering for the commit-
tee. I felt I could be helpful to
staff people as they develop a
utilities system."
Walker recalled a county
policy several years ago that
involved the purchase of
small water companies to
allow the county to stay
abreast of growth.
"That worked for a while,"
he said. "But in the past 10
years, there has been so much
growth, the county has been
forced to change in a hurry.
I'm happy to be involved in
the effort."
Hanson described her par-
ticipation on the committee
as "a pleasant change. The
outlook of people here is so
different from St. Louis"
"I like the attitude of our
county people," she remark-
ed. "They're' not afraid of:
working with volunteers for
the good of us all.'


Radio-control racers looking for Dearborn Street home


BY GAVIN OFF
STAFFWRITER

A Sarasota County radio-
control racing league is hop-
ing to drive down Dearborn
Street and onto a permanent
track at the Englewood Re-
creation Center.
The soon-to-be Sarasota
Association of Radio Control
Auto Racers is looking to build
on a small stretch of land
behind the park's sheriff's
office building.
Ron Wright, president of
SARCAR, said the group
hopes the land could house
the association's new asphalt
track, complete with a 150-
|foot straightaway, fencing and
drivers' stand.
The land, now home to
several trees, once featured a
volleyball court.
"It would be an action
attraction," said Wright of the
racing track. "It would be a
steady flow of people from
out of town to Dearborn
Street."
For now, Wright's group,
currently known as the Char-
lotte County Radio Control
Racing Association, races
every other week on a basket-
ball court at the Englewood
Sports Complex on River
Road.
Races draw as many as 40
participants and nearly 100
spectators from as far away as
Ocala, Fla. Entrance fees are
$8 per person and $5 for rac-
ers younger than 14.
Edward Exner, supervisor
for parks and recreation's ath-
letics division, said the En-
glewood Recreation Center,
located between Dearborn
and Wentworth streets, could
make a nice home for the rac-
ing association.
The property already has
parking, electricity and the
support of the sheriffs office,
Exner said.
"It kind of gives us a head
start," Exner said. '"A lot of the
start-up costs are already
there."

But there are complica-
tions.
Technicalities
The property is owned by
the' Sarasota County School
District and maintained by
the parks and recreation de-
partment. The building,
meanwhile, is maintained by
the sheriff's office.
Exner said the county
school board has given parks
and rec the go-ahead to look
into building the asphalt
track. He also said a measure-


ment of the area indicated the
property was large enough for
a track, and that racing would
not be too noisy for nearby
neighbors.
"We're just now looking
into the technical details,"
said Exner, who added it
could be an economic benefit
for Dearborn Street. "It's real-
ly, really in its infancy stages.
It looks like it would be a good
fit for everybody."
The racing association has
been hoping to land a perma-
nent track for years.


From 2001 to 2004, the
group raced at the Kash n'
Karry (now Sweetbay) park-
ing lot on State Road 776.
In 2004, Charlotte County
commissioners agreed to
build a $50,000 track at G.C.
Herring Park in Cape Haze.
Wright, however, said the
park is not an ideal location,
and that racing could inter-
fere with the local American
Legion.

Lemon Bay League gets Sarasota County support


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

The Englewood Commun-
ity Redevelopment Agency is
at a tipping point that would
change the complexion of the
entire area.
These were the words of
caution and excitement from
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Shannon Staub as she
expressed her worries and
hopes for the future growth of
the area.
Staub told her fellow com-
missioners she doesn't want
the county to look beyond the
larger plan with a huge influx
of money coming and inter-
est from developers at the
cost of losing the character of
the community.
She made her comments
following a presentation by
representatives of the Lemon
Bay League Inc. about the


potential of linking the CRA's
, community survey with the
effort by the league to do a
survey of the entire water-
shed area.
"We are getting requests
for five- six- and seven-story
buildings there and I am not
sure if that is the direction we
want to go there," Staub said.
She admitted to being
eager to implement bigger
plans within the CRA, which
has not happened since its
inception in 1999.
Staub wants the commis-
sioners to meet with the CRA
advisory board to discuss the
pressing issues of what pro-
jects to do and how to pay for
them.
She was among the com-
missioners who were worried
the money being sought by
the league for a regional study
would be taken away from
other projects.


Investment
Also an issue the commis-
sioners said they were initial-
ly worried about is whether
the CRA money is being used
to pay for things outside of
the scope the money is legally
bound to be used for.
County Administrator Jim
Ley eased everyone's fears,
saying the support the county
can provide the league, be it
through CRA money or else-
where, is an "investment in
democracy."
Ley said the money can be
used as a commitment to the
community.
The Lemon Bay League
did not ask for any money
Tuesday. Rather, it asked for a
stronger link with county staff
concerning its efforts to allow
the league to use county
information for its regional
study.
The reason the issues


came up is because CRA
money is collected through
property taxes generated
within the boundaries that
were set in 1998 and range
from the county line north to
near Boca Royale and include
portions of Manasota Key.
Any increases, over the initial
property taxes since 1998 are
put into the CRA fund in a
process called tax increment
financing.
The money is supposed to
be spent for various uses
within the boundaries of the
CRA, but Ley said the money
can also be spent on items
that will create an overall ben-
efit to the community, which
is exactly how the league
viewed the money.
League board of directors
member Steve Suau said the
money is already being spent
by the county to do environ-
mental and economic impact


studies of the area, which
include trying to figure out
where future growth will be.
Tom Minnich, league vice
chairman, said the grassroots
effort is designed to protect
the watershed, which affects
the entire region.
Logical move
Ley said aligning with the
league's efforts, which are
already a part of the county's
work for the area, is a logical
move.
"This is a commitment to
the community and coupled
with other applications,
shows we are moving in an
important direction and in-
vesting in the lemon Bay
League is important as well,"
he said.
Suau said the league re-
ceived a commitment of
about $75,000 from Charlotte
County for its efforts and was.


seeking up to $100,000 from
Sarasota County. Combined
with the work already being
done between the CRA and
county, Sarasota County's
contribution would reach
$330,000.
The league also received
more than $255,000 in grants,
including one from Gulf
Coast Community Found-
ation of Venice.
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson said she supported
using the money for the
league because it provides a
purpose.
"We haven't seen a huge
direction from anyone,"
Patterson said. "This is
absolutely the moment for
people to take a look at all of
the options. I think it's great."

Mote Marine praises eBay rejection of sawfish parts


BYGAVIN OFF,
ASSISTANT ENGLEWOOD EDITOR


eBay has banned the sale
of smalltooth sawfish parts
on its Web site, bringing
praise from Mote Marine
Laboratory officials who said
one of the fish's last remaining
habitats is in Charlotte
- Harbor.
Sawfish, a species of ray
known for having chainsaw-
like snouts, are listed as en-
dangered by the U.S. National
Marine fisheries Service.
Their numbers fell drasti-
cally throughout the 1900s
because of habitat loss and'
overfishing, including both
direct catching- and from


being caught in nets by fish-
erman after other fish.
While they used to range
from Mexico to New York,
sawfish now populate areas
only around South Florida,
including Charlotte Harbor,
the fish's northernmost
known nursery area.
Charlotte Harbor is also
the northernmost area where
the fish are spotted regularly.
On Jan. 23, eBay officials
announced the Web site
would no longer permit the
sale of the fish's saws, which
can fetch up to $1,000; said
Tonya Wiley, a staff biologist
with Mote's Sawfish Conserv-
ation Biology Program.
"We're hoping that others


will follow eBay," Woley said.
"It's removing one of the
threats to the population."
Mote studies Charlotte
Harbor's sawfish numbers
two weeks a month, tagging
and tracking the fish, and
studying sawfish habitat.
Scientists are studying
their behavior, movement
patterns and growth. It is
believed sawfish can grow up
to 20 feet long and 2,000
pounds. Adults use their saws
to impale fish swimming in
schools, while juveniles use
their saws to grub along the
ocean bottom.
According to a report from
the Sarasota-based laborato-
ry, Mote has been studying


sawfish since 1999 and pro-
vided 'data to the Ocean
Conservancy that helped get
the fish listed as an endan-
gered species.
"It's illegal to sell sawfish
parts in any way shape or
form," said Nadine Slimak,
Mote's spokeswoman.
In 2000, Mote tagged both
its largest and smallest saw-
fish. The largest one mea-
sured 16 feet, while the small-
est stretched only 29 inches.
"It's critical to know the
most important habitats for
this species and how these
animals use different areas if
they are to ever recover," said
Colin Simpfendorfer, Mote's
manager of Elasmobranch


Fisheries and Conservation
Biology program in a state-
ment. "And eBay's changes
will hopefully raise public
awareness on a number of


levels, letting more people
know how they can help saw-
fish." Anyone who spots or
catches a sawfish is asked to
call Mote at (941) 388-4441.

OUR VIEW




Justice means punishing only the guilty


I n 1982 Alan Crotzer, 45, of St. Petersburg,
was sentenced to 130 years in prison
after being convicted of sexual battery,
kidnapping, aggravated assault, burglary,
robbery and attempted robbery. He was
identified by several witnesses,
On Jan. 23, Crotzer walked out of prison
a free man, thanks to DNA testing and the
help of Jenny Greenberg, who heads the
Florida Innocence Project.
Had it not been for the Florida Supreme
Court, Crotzer would still be behind bars.
The state's high court had to step in twice
to extend the DNA testing deadline set by
the Legislature.
That deadline is set to lapse in July. If the
deadline is not extended indefinitely, evi-
dence that could prove other men and
women innocent could be destroyed.
Amazingly, a handful of Florida lawmakers
are reported to be resisting the effort to pass


legislation to extend the deadline. However,
no one in Tallahassee wants to name the law-
makers who oppose the DNA testing exten-
sion. One source, who asked not to be iden ti-
fled, suggested opposition comes from legis-
lators with strong law enforcement ties or law
enforcement backgrounds. ,
A fairly high percentage of those who are
locked up in Florida have very little educa-
tion, have trouble reading, have no idea they
should request a DNA test of the evidence
used to convict them and have no concept
of how a DNA test could free them.
The Florida Innocence Project consists of
two individuals who depend on donations.
One of them, Jenny Greenberg,'an attorney,
says because of a project budget shortfall,
at times she has gone for months without a
salary.
Most Floridians believe our criminal jus-
tice system using a defense lawyer, prose-


cutor, judge and jury-- will get it right. Most
believe the good guys are acquitted, while
the bad guys are locked up. And that's what
happens most of the time.
But what happens to people when the
system fails, as in the case of Alan Crotzer?
Sometimes innocent people are executed.
The use of DNA analysis has become the
most significant criminal justice system
breakthrough since we stopped determining
guilt and innocence by tying someone's
hands and feet together and dumping him
into a river to see if he would float or sink.
DNA is the unique material found in
everyone's body that controls inheritance of
eye color, hair color, stature, bone density
and most other human traits. A tiny sample
of hair, saliva or skin, when tested by a pro-
fessional DNA scientist, can prove, to an
extremely high probability, if a defendant
was not at the crime scene.


Those in Tallahassee who oppose ex-
tending the deadline should be invited to
spend a week or two in a Florida prison,
just so they can understand why freeing
innocent people is so important.
We doubt the citizens of Florida want
people who .have not committed a crime to
remain locked up. The Innocence Project is
run on donations, so it costs taxpayers
nothing, even for testing the DNA collected
at the crime scene. Tests are done at a pri-
vate laboratory, according to Greenberg.
It is time for the Legislature to encourage
the Florida Innocence Project to function for
years. All evidence used to convict a person
must be protected until every DNA test
required can be completed.
Those who wish to assist the Florida
Innocence Project can send an e-mail to
jgreenberg@innocenceproject.org or phone
her at (850) 561-6768.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Who wants to go forward, anyway?



Editor:
Your guest columnist, Joe Brower, is a computer engineer
and so well qualified to detect that giving our high school
students laptops is just another "socialist dream."
This is a socialist trend endangering our great nation. I've
a good mind to make our ninth-grade son give his laptop back
to Dr. Norris.
Joe knows something ignorant computer guys like Bill
Gates do not when they announce "our high schools were
designed 50 years ago to meet the needs of another age."
Joe recognizes that we are better off as an agricultural nation
going to school for 180 days so we can harvest the fall crops.
Who cares that every other industrialized nation in the world
schools its kids 190 to 200 days a year?
Joe tells us that $250,000,000 is a lot of zeros. If you throw
away all that cash over the next four years to update our dis-
trict's 35,000 students, you are going to waste about $1.65 a
student class hour. Heck, you could let them download two
tunes on their iPod for that, and they'd certainly appreciate it
more.
If Joe is really serious about hearing more information to
twist to his fertile imagination, he should log on to the'Sara-
sota schools Web site at www.sarasota.k12.fl.us, where he'll
find out all about NeXt Generation Learning in detail. How
about that for a socialist subterfuge?
And as for being more involved in the decision-making
process, on March 14 there is a referendum when he can do
just that.
See you at the polling station, Joe.

County has funds to
increase staffing now

Editor:
Sarasota County Fire De-
partment staffing is so dismal
that it is time for the executive
director of emergency ser-
vices to be confronted. Mr.
Harrawood is intellectually
challenged on fire service
operations.
The county is sitting on
about $30 million earmarked
for the fire department.
County taxpayers are under
the false assumptions that
their hard-earned taxes are
being uded to provide them
with adequate fire protec-
tion. Nothing could be fur-
ther from the truth.
Do you realize that calling


9-1-1 for a fire will bring only
two firemen on the first ap-
paratus to your house? This
is the most indefensible lack
of staffing that a modern fire
department commits to a
fire. It is hazardous to the fire-
man and prevents an aggres-
sive attack on the fire. Sure,
more apparatus will arrive,
but the fire will increase in
size and the damage will be
extensive.
Sarasota has the funds on
hand to double the .number
of personnel without any tax
increase. Forget your two-
year, 'five-year or 10-year
plan. Hire and train enough
men as soon as possible.
You have a great and well-
respected fire chief and well-
trained and dedicated fire-


men. Your fire trucks are
newest and the best. I have
to say that I have never seen
a fire truck put out a fire.
I am a retired lieutenant
from the Cleveland fire de-
partment with 30 years of
service in busy fire stations
and I have wintered here for
25 years.

Things don't

Editor:
After reading so much
about the city actions in the
"shade," I wonder if the Sun-
shine Law has been repealed
or just failed.
We were often warned
about problems in the city,
but we ignored most of
them. Does this mean that
we will have shady govern-
ment from now on. And will
that darkness affect Gulf
Coast Community Founda-
tion of Venice and the school
district?
Whatever happened to

McNulty made
her feel better
Editor:
With the Venice Police
Department suffering some
negative publicity, I am eager
to report that on Jan. 27, Sgt.
Thomas McNulty treated me
with such courtesy, warmth
and dignity that I felt much
less stupid about losing my
purse and all its contents.
The response was immedi-
ate, efficient and comforting.

-with our other bridges. The
reasoning is they don't do it
on any of their other bridges.
Well, just maybe this isn't like
-the other bridges, at least in
its proximity to the center of
town.
i They made Selby Library
in Sarasota extra fancy, so
using that concept then we
ought to make our library
:,.,extra fancy.
They did finally agreed to
|pay half if the city would pay
'half. The city didn't like the


wording of the contract
because it looks to them they
might have to do all mainte-
nance to the bridge, which
was not the county's inten-
tion. Since no one trusts the
other, they just trade shots or
insults which makes the rela-
tions worse.
It is hard for me to under-
stand why two really good
people, Jim Ley and Marty
Black, can't seem to be able
when working with their
teams to make this work bet-
ter than it does. The county
now has filed with the state
charges that the city has not
complied the comp plans in
place. Talking with the city
first would have been nice.
I see the county's concern
because certainly the city
grows by leaps and bounds
assuming the county will
provide the necessary roads.
Do we need a hot line be-
tween Ley and Black?
Do we need a joint medi-
ation panel of two county
folks, two city folks and two
people from Michigan who
don't live here year around?

It was 54 years. ago this
week that the Sarasota
County Memorial Hospital
opened with 225 beds. It
then became Venice Hos-
pital, then Bon Secours and
now Venice Regional.

Bidders cast bids last week
for lots in North Port with
proceeds going to the city of
North Port and the County
for the Housing Trust. Ac-
cording to people I know
'who were trying to bid, the
system got so bogged down
on the first lot that on many
subsequent lots people could
not get in and bid thus in
many cases the prebids won.
I would guess if this proves
true the county lost a heck of
a lot of money on this.

I called Medco to see about
enrolling in Medicare Part D
because that is where we get
our medication now. I was


checking each prescription
and was being told the cost.
But with the last medicine
my husband takes, I was told
that medicine needed to be
pre-approved. I asked how I
could do that and was told I
had to join first.
So, if I join, and this last
medicine isn't approved, I will
have to bear the entire cost.
Does that sound right? ,

Clean up. I have a com-
ment to make regarding code
enforcement and strength-
ening their power and
authority in South Venice. I
have to say all my neighbors
are in full agreement. We have
several houses for sale that
are just not selling. We have
some trash, living across the
street and I don't blame any
potential buyer for not wanti-
ng to live across the street
from something that's an eye-
sore and degrading to the
neighborhood. It's actually
dragging property down. It's'
not just an opinion. Houses
are worth $300,000. now;
they're not '$40;000 cottages
anymore. We have to bring
these codes up into the new
millennium here. I would*
imagine the county would
want property values to keep
going up too, especially be-
cause of the tax base. If it
were ever put to a vote, I'm
sure about 90 percent of the
people would want an in-
crease in authority in code
enforcement. It's just pure
laziness that people have
xweeds and mold all over their
.housesI and -motoroaycles.and..

place. I am a working-class
person, too. I cannot afford to
live in a deed-restricted area,
but that doesn't mean I want
to live like trash either.

drop in the bucket and it's
gonna help us sell our house.
How can we sell our house?
Where would be go? Property
values. South Venice was built
so that the people could actu-
ally live here and enjoy our

Sarasota or the island of

STAFF REPORT


More than 25,000 Ameri-
cans are injured each year in
fires and more than 4,000 die
according to the National Fire
Protection Agency. .
Of those fire deaths, 80
percent occur in the home
because of careless smoking.
It is leading cause of fire
deaths.
Deaths due to fires caused
by careless smoking are
avoidable, says Sarasota
County Fire Chief Brian
Gorski. Having a working
smoke alarm in the home
more than doubles one's
chances of surviving a fire.
According to Gorski, many
victims of careless smoking
might be alive today if they


had followed these lifesaving
tips:
Never smoke in bed.
Replace mattresses made
prior to the 1973 Federal
Mattress Flammability Stan-
dard.
Don't put ashtrays on the
arms of sofas or chairs.
Use large ashtrays with
wide lips. While smaller ash-
trays may be more conve-
nient or attractive, they are
not safe. Cigarettes can roll off
the edge, and ashes can blow
easily.
Wet ashes before dump-
ing into waste cans. Ashes can
smolder for hours, then
ignite.
Don't leave cigarettes,
cigars or pipes unattended.
Extinguish all smoking

Indians 2nd





in district


VHS has four individual champions -
Wade Consul, Brett Nelson, Jeremie Cook


and AnthonySaputo.

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Venice High's wrestling
team had to settle for second
place in Saturday's Class 2A
District 10 Tournament at
Lakewood Ranch High, but
it was pretty much mission
accomplished for Dan Kelly's
Indians.
Venice advances 12 of its
14 matmen to this coming
Saturday's regional tourna-
ment at Charlotte High.
The top four finishers in
each of the 14 weight classes
earn the trip to regionals.
The Indians had four dis-
trict champions, two run-
nerups, .two third-place fin-
ishers and four fourth-place
finishers.
Manatee was first in team
points with 220. Then came
Venice with 176-1/2 points.
North Port was third with
124-1/2 points. The rest of
the finish had host Ranch at
91-1/2, Bayshore at 75,
Booker at 41 and Southeast
at35.
Venice placed six wrestlers
in the finals with four win-
ning.
Wade Consul picked up
-the-first title at 119..pounds,
decisioning Manatee's Bo
Siddle 2-0. Consul is now an
impressive 36-9.
Brett Nelson wrestled a
smart match against tough
160-pound ,foe Brendan
Flanagan of Manatee, taking
a 4-2 decision. Nelson was
3-0 on the day with two
pins to raise his personal
mark to 42-1.
Jeremie Cook didn't even
work up a sweat in his 189-
pound final, as Manatee's
Andrew Faulk reportedly had
a sore ankle and defaulted.
Cook had pinned Faulk ear-


lier this season. Cook, a
defending state champ, went
3-0 to up his personal record
to 44-0.
Anthony Saputo looked
sharp all day at heavyweight.
He recorded a pin and techni-
cal fall before his final against
Manatee's Rich Dahlin.
Saputo was in total control,
pinning the big Hurricane in
2:51. Saputo had decisioned
Dahlin during a dual. Saputo
is now 40-5 on the season.
Venice was 4-1 in finals
against Manatee wrestlers.
It was almost 5-0, as Jon
Hodge missed out on win-
ning at 145 when he gave up
a takedown at the end of
the second period. He lost
to Brody Scott 8-6.
The other Venice matman
making the finals was Doug
Little at 112. He was pinned
by North Port's Josh Barnes
in 1:20.
Third-place consolation
winners for Venice were
Trevor Goodin at 135 and
Jim Foubister at 215. Goodin
manhandled Southeast in
his consy bout, 12-0. Fou-
bister won by default over
North Port's Charlie Wil-
from.
Losing consolation bouts
were Andrew Lopez at 103,
Billy Fields at 125, Tyler
Spann at 130 and Will Mol-
thop at 140.
Lopez dropped a tough
8-6 decision in his consy
bout. Fields wrestled well on
the day and lost an excru-
ciating 8-7 decision in his
final. Spann fell 5-0 and
Molthop got caught and was
pinned.
Two Venice wrestlers went
0-2 and saw their seasons
end. They were Kyle Keefe
at 152 and Andrew Saputo
at 171.

Vikings fall just short in defensive battle

SPORTS EDITOR

It's not showing in the won-loss col-
umn yet, but the Venice Vikings are
playing a competitive brand of foot-
ball.
The Vikings saw their Southern States
Football League record fall to 0-3 with a
13-6 loss to the Miami Bulls Saturday
night at Letson Stadium.
The Bulls were in the SSFL cham-
pionship game last year.
The Vikings defense kept them in the
game.
Dre Lewis played a super game at
linebacker. Andrew Jackson and Izzy
Laguerre were also active there. Duke


Ham had a huge interception at the
goal line to kill a Bull drive late in the
third quarter. Mo Harris and Ben
Seymour also broke up pass plays.
J.D. Zwilling continued to punt the
ball well.
All of the scoring came in the first
half.
The Bulls went out to a 7-0 lead on
a 50-yard run by Rory Walker, 4who
rushed for more than 200 yards.
Venice came back on a 43-yard pass
play from Will Carter to Aaron Weedo.
The extra point attempt was blocked.
The Vikings handed the Bulls a TD
just before half. A fumbled snap deep in
their own territory set up the TD that
made it 13-6.


The Vikings hit the road the next
two weeks and return home Feb. 25,
against the Jensen Beach Pirates.

3rd quarter sparks' Indians in regular season finale
f


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
"SPORTS EDITOR

It was a struggle for a half,
but the smothering man-to-
man defense and patient
offense of the Venice High
boys basketball team are
going to get to you eventually.
Lemon Bay hung tough for
a while against the Indians,
but the home team was able
to assert itself in a solid sec-
ond half.
The 55-49 victory made for
a successful "Senior Night" at
the Teepee.
A large crowd was boosted
by a healthy gathering of
YMCA kids and parents.
Venice, which outscored
Lemon Bay 30-15 in the sec-
ond half, finishes the regular
season with a record of 15-10.
'The Indians have won eight
straight and they eagerly
await this week's district tour-
nament.
Lemon Bay fell to 9-11 with
the non-district defeat.
Venice coach Steve Caval-
laro started all five of his
seniors Ilya Vasilevskiy at
center, Kalen Lyons and Bill
Mehserle at forwards, and

Stritz at guards.
All contributed substan-
tially to the win.
Stritz led the Indians in
scoring with 15 points. He
had two 3-point goals. Point
guard Bonilla chipped in with
nine points.
In the middle, Vasilevskiy
rack and rolled for 10 points.
Mehserle also had 10 points,
while Lyons had nine.
In the beginning of the
game, it looked like it would
be Venice's night, but Lemon
Bay kept battling back from
deficits. It was 5-0 early and
13-9 later in the first quarter,
but by period's end, it was tied
at 13.
The same thing happened
in the second quarter. The
Indians threatened to open it
up, leading 24-17 following a
short jumper by Lyons. The
Manta Rays rallied to only
trail 25-24 at intermission.
Cavallaro had some choice
words for his bunch at half-
time. The players responded
in a big way in the third quar-
ter.
The Ihdians stepped it up
on defense and did a great job
passing the ball around and
working for good looks.

backdoor. Stritz connected
on a 3-pointer from the cor-
ner at the buzzer, and it was

Woman fined for home-based resort and spa


BY GEORGE MCGINN
:STAFF WRITER

A Sarasota County Special
:Magistrate found Mira Mat-
:chin guilty of violating a
:Feb. 4, 2005, order to stop
'running a business from her
:home, and fined her $7,825.
- The Jan. 20 decision also
places a 9-percent interest
rate on any unpaid balance
'and a lien on her Warm
:Mineral Springs home.
Sarasota County Code En-
*forcement filed for a new
hearing on Nov. 12, claiming
:Matchin ignored the Feb. 4,
2005, order and continued
to conduct business from a
house in a residential zone.
County zoning laws forbid
anyone from running a busi-
ness in a residential home
tat changes the nature of
the neighborhood, or nega-
tively affects the residents.
In a hearing held at the
)bert L. Anderson building
SVenice, Sarasota County
Special Magistrate Meg Wit-
tmer determined that Mat-
C.hin had violated the prior
border She said testimony
ofearly showed 1Matchin was
%till running a business at her
'16 Hacienda St. home in
|Tarm fMineral Springs
k, Attorney Nicolas Sardelis
obf Sarasota, representing
.Matchin, raised many objec-
,,ns during the hearing,
claiming the evidence was
l' earsay, speculative at best."
Matchin did not attend the
hearing and could not be
reached fdr comment.
he defense
^ Sardelis argued the orig-
',Mal order said Matchin was
stop running a "wellness
,nter and physical therapy
Zjsiness.
;.- In his closing arguments,
rrdelis said the county must
Follow the original order, and
the testimony and evidence
'idd__r prove Nlatchin wasa
Stunning a wellness or therapy
business. He said the county
also did not prove that money
changed hands.
He said the county could-
n't prove that any guests at
Matchin's home stayed longer
than 30 days, as it states on
an occupational license Mat-
chin obtained from the tax
collector's office.
Sardelis would not com-
ment on the hearing after-
[ward.
In her decision, Wittmer
'said "a business is a business,"
;adding that having an occupa-
idonal license "does not give
her (Matchin) permission to
runm a business" from a resi-
dentially zoned house.
"I am hopeful this will
stop it, but I'm not optimis-
-tic," said Carolyn Krane, who
lives behind Matchin's Hac-
ienda Street home.
,.. "I am not going to wait for
the county if she starts up
again," she said, explaining
'that at the first signs of busi-
ness activities, she will file a
complaint.
,1, Gene Kapica, who lived
`ext to Matchin, said he
-wanted Wittmer to assess
fines further back than she
,did. Kapica sold his house
aid two lots and rented the
IKranes' home while he builds
Saew one.
Krane came to the hearing,
"it did not testify.
Further investigation
County Code Enforcement
Officer Richard Kuntz, who
has been investigating Mat-
chin for about two years,
said he was happy with the
decision, but only if it causes
2Matchin to stop her business.
."I am not into cat-and-
mouse games," Kuntz said,
aidingg that Matchin has a
-pfattern of going into. and
SOut of compliance.
"'* Kuntz testified that during
.a- 30-day period, he saw and
photographed Matchin trans-
porting large groups of people
tQ four different houses: two
,homes on Dorado Drive, one


15n Granada Drive and one on
,Isabel Street. He also testified
,fiat two vans were used to
-take large groups to the
,springs, a.natural lake close by.
Kuntz said he will look


into activities at all the ad-
dresses and may file more
violations if warranted.
Exhibits included more
than a dozen photos taken
between Nov. 9, 2005, and
Dec. 9, 2005, showing the
movement of large groups of
people from four separate


Warm Mineral Springs
homes, including Matchin's.
It also included a Web site
where Matchin listed her
business as a "resort with a
medical spa." The Web site
also stated that it cost $850
for a two-week stay, which
included daily checkups


with a medical doctor, three
dietary meals a day, access
to the springs and day trips.
It also outlined costs for
massages and acupuncture.
The Web site was shut
down after it was reported in a
Sun article in December 2005.
Other exhibits included


corporation papers filed
with the Florida Division of
Corporations showing Mat-
chin as the manager and list-
ing the home behind hers, on
Granada Drive, as its address.
Kapica testified that he.
saw almost 500 people com-
ing and going at the Hacien-


da Street and Granada Drive
houses, garbage would line
up "30 feet long" in front of
the Hacienda Street home,
he saw people in medical
scrubs visit the home reg-
ularly and Matchin had
people come in to clean and
cook for her guests.

Fender Orchid named for Su-
san Fender who along with
her husband Bill own Fend-
er's Flora in Venice. They will

One Pillsbury Doughboy is
being moved to Tennessee.
In 2002, Judie Baylis of
Venice was one of the 100
finalists in the biannual Pills-
bury Bake-off, one. of just
eight Florida cooksto qualify
for the most famous and pos-
sibly most lucrative cooking
contest in the United States.
The finals were held at the
Portofino Bay Hotel in Or-
lando that year. In addition to
a new GE Advantium oven for
her Venice kitchen, she was
given her very own Pillsbury
Doughboy.
-As this .year's Pillsbury
finalists gather in Florida
once again, Baylis will not be
there. Instead, she is packing
up her Bake-Off memories
and the Doughboy and, with
her husband Robert, is mov-
ing to Tennessee.
Taking up a good bit of
space on the moving v'an will
be her cookbook collection.
While not as large as the
multi-room library used by
Pillsbury Bake-Off judges in
winnowing down the millions
of entries to 100 finalists, the
Baylis cookbook library has
filled a wall of shelves in her
Venice home's pantry. Also in
the pantry is a floor-to-ceiling
cupboard in which she stores
shelves filled with carefully
labeled bottled herbs and
spices; Most dried herbs and
spices last longer if kept in a
dark place. Another Wall of
shelves holds all the basics a
prize-winning cook needs to
work her magic. There is more
on those shelves than sugar,
flour and baking powder. Like
the herbs and the cookbooks,
everything is sorted and
labeled.
Next to the perfect pantry
is the perfect kitchen, de--
signed by Judie when she and
her husband moved to Water-
ford some years ago.
I went with her to Orlando
in 2002 and remember her
saying, "If I win the new.
kitchen, I will give the prize to
my sister."
No way would she replace
her existing kitchen with any
brand-new, top-of-the-line
kitchen, part of that year's
grand prize. She already had a
Subzero refrigerator, Viking
gas stove top and hood, two
dual convection Viking wall
ovens, a Bosch dishwasher,
center island with a second
sink and disposal, Corian
countertops and more. Pair
that with the pantry that is
large enough to serve as a
home office for a non-cook
type, and it was easy to under-
stand that the title would be


A, .A '

worth far more to Baylis than
the prize.
Although she probably
would have kept the grand
prize of $1 million, which is
being awarded March 22 in
Orlando.
Even with all the bells and
whistles in this gourmet
kitchen, becoming a finalist is
no easy task, although this
kitchen certainly, should
tempt its next owner to try,
and follow in the footsteps of
Baylis. Baylis has been to all
the top cooking schools in
this country and in Europe,
and she has the certificates,
aprons and chef's hats to
prove it. And since 2002, she
has also had her own Dough-
boy and the sign that hung
above range number 51 in the
Portofino ballroom where the
finalists prepared their rec-
ipes at least twice and as
many as three times once
for the photographers, once
for the judges to taste and a
third time, for media and
other cooks to taste.
Being at the Bake-Off is an
experience. For four days and


Carefully labeled spices and herbs are kept in a dark cupboard.


three nights, the finalists,
food writers and judges were
treated like royalty, dining on
gourmet meals and sleeping
in the deluxe accommoda-
tions found at the Portofino
Bay Hotel at Universal
Orlando. On the night before
the actual Bake-Off, the final-
ists were treated to a special
banquet at which they were
also told what to expect at the
next day's Bake-Off. To enter-
tain the media and give the
finalists a break from our con-
stant presence, we were treat-
ed to a separate special meal
in the hotel's finest dining
room.
To thoroughly spoil us,
sponsors Pillsbury and Gen-
eral Mills had flown in top
New York chef Lydia Bas-
tanovich to prepare our meal
and then sign copies of her
latest cookbook. Everyone
had time to visit Universal
Orlando and to enjoy the pool
at the hotel. I may have been
more disappointed that Bay-
lis when she did not win a
finalist spot for the 2004
Bake-Off.


Becoming a finalist is no
easy task. Millions of entries
are received and even before
the recipes are compared to
those in that huge Pillsbury
library to make sure they are
new and original, a contest
screening company has,'to go
over every single entry to
make sure that every rule has
been followed. If the rule
states that the envelope must
be addressed to 123 Main
Street and it is addressed to
123 "Main St., it will be dis-
carded. Several hundred
thousand entries are dis-
posed of because entrants fail
to follow the rules to.the let-
ter. Then the entries are scru-
tinized for originality as well
as for the use of products sold
by the sponsors Pillsbury,
General Mills, Green Giant,
Old El Paso, Progresso, Hersh-
ey and Splenda, for example.
Originality counts. Food
fads also seem to count. In
2002, paninis were coming
into vogue and the grand-
prize winner was a chicken
panini.
Baylis had all that to earn


her finalist spot in 2002, and it
probably didn't hurt that she
had such a well-equipped
kitchen and pantry. She said
she entered one entry in the
2004 Bake-Off and nine this
year but acknowledged that
at least one entry may have
been discarded because she
did not list the recipe ingredi-
ents precisely in the order in
which they were to be used.
When not knocking out
prize-winning recipes and
meals, Baylis seems to have
carried her organizational
skills over into her two-bed-
room, three-bath Waterford
home, which is totally color
coordinated and as neat and
clean as her kitchen.
The house, with pool and
view of both a lake and the
Waterford golf course, was
listed for sale at $519,000 with
RE/MAX Realtor Gae Stewart.
For an appointment to see
the house, call Stewart at 488-
6262.
It will be interesting to see
if the home's next owner will
become the next Pillsbury
Bake-Off finalist from Venice.

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. I believe my husband has
a hearing loss but every time
I try to discuss it with him,
he says he is fine and doesn't
need any help. Everyone who
knows him knows' he' has
Trouble, but he ,becomes
angry with me when I tell
him he needs help. Is there
anything a spouse (or
significant other) can do to
encourage the seeking of
hearing solutions?
A. I once taught a course in
which I had my students wear
earplugs for a full day. They
were asked to log every
emotion they went through and
report to the class the following
week. Students said they felt
inadequate and incompetent.
With the absence of ordinary
sounds, there was a feeling of
disorientation. By the end of
the day, most students
confessed they were unnerved
and depressed. People who
develop hearing loss from an
explosion, accident or other
trauma are more inclined to
deal with it quickly because the
hearing loss is readily apparent.
Those who lose their hearing
gradually over time tend to
blame others for "mumbling
their words" or for speaking
too softly, Communication is a
dynamic process between
people. It is vitally important
that the significant other be
actively involved in helping the
person with hearing loss
through the rehabilitation
process. Adjusting to corrective
amplification is not easy.
Discouragement can set in and
a partner who does not
understand or appreciate what
the person with hearing loss is
going through can fuel this
frustration.
The Audiologists at
Woodmere Hearing &
Balance Centers, Inc. have an
assessment questionnaire,
which can measure your
husband's readiness for help.
Call us at 492-4327 to receive
your assessment and additional
information about hearing loss.
This is a good first step to take
on the road to getting your
husband the hearing help he
needs.

FRESH AIR


'Spring break' of a different kind


N ALLAl' ggA(


FRESH AIR COLUMNIST

It was early February
when my wife, June, and I
were cruising along Califor-
nia's Pacific Coast Highway 1.
We unexpectedly came upon
a large group of northern
elephant seals on the beach
between the highway and
the ocean. Birthing season
for elephant seals was ending.
The peak mating season for
these unusual sea mammals
is, appropriately, Valentine's
Day.
We were fascinated with
the youngsters, those silvery,
wide-eyed individuals who
had only just been weaned,
and their siblings from one
to five years. March and
April are their "spring break'
time! Their mothers mated
again, and then swam off to
sea to feed. The pups left
behind will have to learn for
themselves how to swim,
how to catch a meal, how to
avoid predators like sharks
and orcas. Only about half of
them will make it through
their first year at sea. It's a
rough beginning.
Until they do get -hungry
enough to attempt to swim,
these plump youngsters (400
pounds at one month) stay
;,im the beach and .i'e qff .the i
fat they've stored while they i
were gorging on their moth-
ers' milk, which is the richest
in fat of all mammals (54.5
percent). 'They'll stay there
eight to 10 weeks after their
mothers leave. The pups
may lose 30-to 50 percent of
the weight they were when
theywere weaned.
They snooze. They snug-
gle. They molt, looking pretty
scruffy. They were born
black-coated, but shed that
coat in favor of their perma-
nent silver-gray coat. We
watched them test each
other in mock battle. They
have a good time. After all,
it's "spring break!" Eventually,
they begin to explore the
ocean.
It's not an instantaneous

thing, swimming. It's tried
out a bit at a time. Rolling in
shallow water, the elephant
seals blow bubbles and
splash. We thought they acted
a lot like big puppies. It takes
a good deal of practice for
these young elephant seals to
become seaworthy.
The young seals that
haven't yet joined in the
competition to mate, haven't
given birth; are simply there
to shed and relax. They may
stay on that beach until May.
This is not a time for eating.
They conserve energy by
doing very little. There will
be some vocalizations -
from squawks to bellows, but
nothing like the booming
sounds they'll eventually be
able to create. And, if they
can't find someone who
wants to play, there's usual-
ly some seaweed, to toss
around.
Eventually, they grow into
formidable adults. Male ele-


phant seals can reach 13 feet
in length; weigh up to 4,400
pounds. That's about the
same length as our manatees,
but elephant seals can be
nearly 1,000 pounds heavier
than manatees. Female ele-
phant seals are smaller, up to
10 feet and 1,300 pounds.
They get their name from the
long snout that appears as
they mature sexually.
From a species low of
about 20 individuals (they
were hunted for their blub-
ber, like whales), northern
elephant seals have made a
comeback to about 115,000.
A little caring and help from
humans can accomplish
wonderful things. Let's
make sure our manatees
receive this same kind of
protection.

JIM MILLER
GUEST COLUMNIST


Dear Savvy Senior,
A friend of mine was telling
me about a housing option for
seniors called co-housing, but
I've never heard of it. What can
you tell me about this? Home
Hunter
Dear Hunter,
It's called elder cohousing,
a new housing concept that
offers older adults, age 55
and above, the opportunity
to live interdependently and
within a close-knit group of
neighbors. Here's what you
should know.
Cohousing
Originating in Denmark,
the concept of cohousing,
was first introduced in the
United States (to people of all
ages) about 15 years ago.
Cohousing is a small,
planned housing community
that offers its residents an
old-fashioned sense of
neighborhood. In cohousing,
residents can get to know
their neighbors well, which
helps build a strong sense of
community that is usually
absent in today's cities and
suburbs.
Cohoiusing communities
are designed and managed
by their residents. The homes
are usually individually
owned, totally self-sufficient,


varying in size and costs. To
promote interaction, cohous-
ing communities typically
cluster their homes around a
pedestrian walkway or court-
yard. Communities also have
shared amenities such as a
community building or com-
mon house where residents
gather several times a week
for optional group meals and
social activities. Many
cohousing developments
may also offer common
workshops, craft rooms, stor-
age sheds, gardens, fitness
facilities and more.
There are 80 multi-genera-
tional cohousing communi-
ties throughout the United
States with around 80 more
under planning or construc-
tion phase. To learn more,
contact the Cohousing
Association of the United
States at cohousing.org or
call (314) 754-5828.
Elders only
Similar to multigenera-
tional cohousing is elder
cohousing, a new option
that's sparking an interest in
many of today's aging baby
boomers. Elder cohousing
communities have the same
concepts and elements as
their multi-generational '
counterparts except they're
only for older adults, 55-plus.
Elder cohousing also pro-
vides additional design fea-
tures in the homes and com-
mon facilities that make
aging in place easier and
safer for their residents, such
as: single story houses, step-
free entrances, wider door-
ways for wheel chair access,
lever handles that are easier
to grip, grab bars, low-glare
lighting and extra housing for
caregivers to live in when the
need arises. To learn more,, ,


contact the Elder Cohousing
Network at
eldercohousing.org or call
. (303) 413-8066.
Things to know
For those interested in
elder or multi-generational
cohousing, here are some
additional details to know;
Size: Most cohousing
communities in the United
States are between 15 and 35
households.
Privacy: Cohousing pro-
vides residents a balance of
personal privacy and com-
munity. You choose how'
much you participate.
Costs: Homes in co-
housing communities usual-
ly cost a little more than the
market rate because not only
are you paying for your home
and the land it's built on,
you're also paying your por-
tion of the shared common
land and facilities.
Management: Residents
manage the community and
decisions are made as a com-
munity.
Safety: Knowing the
neighbors are keeping an eye
out for each other is a big
factor for many considering
this option.
Like minded: Many peo-
ple are attracted to cohous-
ing because they want to live
around people who share
their common interest and
beliefs. Be sure you choose
one that fits you.
Lower income:
Depending on the cohousing
community, some may offer
government-aided affordable
housing for lower income
residents.
Selling: In most cases,
anyone leaving a cohousing

VIRGINIA DEUPREE
GUEST COLUMNIST

The other day I was read-
ing a book called "Three
Weeks with my Brother," by
Nicholas and Macah Spachs,
in which Macah noted after
getting rid of most of her
properties such as houses or
condos and a boat, "the more
you own the more it owns
you." I've been thinking
about that a great deal, and I
thought back to the column I
wrote some time ago about
getting rid of things. All my
life I acquired and inherited
things as most of us do.
As long as I'm getting into
serious economics today, I
might as well spiel out anoth-
er of my opinions. I guess I'm
full of them.
Why do so many people
not realize that you have to
save money to have money?
We fritter away millions of
dollars on things we really
don't need or use such as gad-
gets or remedies or bargain
items.
We hear people say. they
can't afford a trip overseas, a
college education, or a new
home. Do you remember the
old expression "a penny saved
is a penny earned?" Maybe
we should change it to "a $20
bill saved is a $20 bill earned."
Idunnq.,


I was reading the other day
about a guy in the admiralty
office in London. He decided
he needed a helper so he
hired one. Then the story goes
something like this. The guy
he hired decided the office
really needed two or three
other people to handle other
aspects of the office. So the
office kept growing. This
resulted in many meetings,
intercommunications and
many other complications. In
the end the Head Guy real-
ized he was working harder
than before he hired all of his
help, and he wasn't so sure
that so much was getting
accomplished.
Does this kind of remind
you of school systems that
have so many administrators,
police and city offices that
hire more and more people,
and state departments that
continually multiply?
If I had a computer, I
would check out how vast the
White House staff is. I once
read the figure and wondered
how they could keep from
stumbling over each other,
and how in the world they
could get anything done. I
dunno!
Didn't the senators have
one secretary at one time? I
wonder how many dozens
they have now? Oh well. I
guess it gives people employ-
ment, helps the economy. I
dunno.
The other day I was writing
about musical memories. I
was so taken by my friend
Nancy's story, I want to share
it with you.
I was fascinated when
Nancy told me about her
mother's musical experi-
ences. She was one of seven
children, and her dad was a


coal miner who couldft
afford a piano or piano leI
sons. She was so desperate b
play the piano at a young ag
that she made a keyboard or
of cardboard, drawing on it a .i
the sharps and flats. The nun
at her parish school gav y
lessons for 5 cents an hou
and her mother used to sneal
it out of the grocery money sc (
it wouldn't be missed. The3
didn't dare tell Dad. When she '
became an accomplished
organist and pianist, he was
so proud of her he gave her a
grand piano for a wedding
gift, which is still in the family.
Chautauqua
When you were young, did
you by chance ever attend a;
Chautauqua happening? I've
asked contemporaries if they
ever attended a Chautauqua.
A number of friends from
Missouri to New York State
had a faint recollection of it.
Attending Chautauqua in a
small town of Wanapah, Ind.,
was I suppose my first
encounter with what we call
culture. Unless of course you
count what little we received
on the radio. My parents
bought tickets for the week
each summer. I remember
hearing plays, lectures and so -
forth under a large tent.
Many, many months ago I
asked mybusy friend, Gretch-
en, if she could find any infor-
mation about Chatauqua,
and she quickly looked it up,
on the Internet. That just goes
to show you how slow I am.
That was months ago, and I'm
just getting around to it. Well, -
anyway, she learned that
Chatauqua was an idea, em-
bracing all things of life: art,

science, religion, patriotism,
education, whatever tends to
enlarge, refine and enoble the
individual.
I was probably too young
to absorb all of that, but it did
leave a lasting impression on
me. I was surprised to read
that Chaitauqua has grown
and travels to cities across the
country, bringing historical
re-enactors to lecture, teach
and entertain.
Chautaqua started in Cha-
tauqua, N.Y., in 1874, and
continued into the early
1930s. I probably attended
from 1921 to 1925.
Down Memory
Lane again
Are you old enough to
know the term Sunday-go-to-


meeting? You know the dress
you wore to Sunday school or
church or for a special occa-
sion?
Well, I guess that kind of
dates me. Some of my friends
whose kids are in their 60s
don't even know what the
term dressed up means!- But
who's talking? Before I came
here I didn't even own a pair
of slacks. Now I think there
might be one dress in my
closet, but then, I'm old!
I can't fathom going out to
dinner, going to someone's
house for cocktails, or even
going to church and not be-
ing what we called "dressed
up." I dunno.
I feel kind of sad for the
loss of the way of dressing
that helps us to feel special.


A friend of mine bought
some beautiful dresses for
their next cruise because that
was the only time she could
wear them. And then, guess
what. The next cruise they
took was entirely casual.
That's not true of all cruises.
All' hufrhes, however, are'
special occasions.
All things seem to go in
cycles. Who knows what peo-
ple will be wearing 20 years
from now. Maybe more.
Maybe less.

Staying wired: Where to

find hookups on the road


BY BERICE MCSMYTHE
GUEST WRITER


Picture if you will, deep in
the heart of Africa, lying in
your comfortable log cabin,
listening to a pride of lions
roaring nearby, hunting for
their evening meal. A leopard
sends out a throaty growl. A
laughing hyena with its dis-
tinctive, almost-human laugh
calls in the. distance. A
warthog family is digging
nearby looking for succulent
roots to satisfy their hunger. A
nightjar joins in the cacopho-
ny of calls. A baboon calls to
his mate.
This is the Umfolozi Game
Reserve, in Natal KwaZulu,
South Africa. A small park by
national standards, but select
and very special. It consists of
four strategically placed
thatched two-bed log cabins.
They are positioned so that
each one is private. Each
cabin is elevated 10 feet from
the ground on sturdy wooden
poles. Access into the cabin is
constructed of sturdy wood-
en logs, forming rustic steps.
Candles provide our night
light.
There were eight of us,
which meant we filled all the
available accommodations,
and we really felt it was our
private game reserve for the
four days we spent there,
Pauline and Rod Mountain,
Estelle and Bill Hobbs, Leonie
and Eckard Muller, and Len
and me.
Our staff consisted of two
experienced cooks, who took
our food supplies from us on
arrival to store in the paraffin-
-burning refrigerator in the
rustic kitchen. Our excellent
cooks would prepare our food
cooked over the camp fires.
Dinner was. servedas& we
N sipped our wine and ate our
delicious steaks in the balmy
evening air.

join us to relate animal-relat-
ed stories in Zulu. As I was the
only one in our group who
could speak Zulu, I would
translate the often hair-rais-
ing events he had witnessed
in the game reserve. It served
as a warning to us to respect
the guide's instructions.
We arose each morning at
daylight. Dressed in suitable
clothing, of somber brown or
dark green, to tone in with the
surrounding bush, and a pair
of comfortable shoes, we
were ready for anything. Our
guide would be ready with his
rifle. He led the way with his
rifle slung over his shoulder
and we followed in complete
silence behind him. We never
knew when we might come
upon a pride of lions, leop-
ards, or hyena.
Here, I would like to point
out that the rifle would never
be used to shoot at any ani-
mals. The only time the guide
would fire the rifle would be
to fire a warning shot in the
air to scare an animal that
may be about to charge.
It is important to know that
these are not farm or circus
animals, and must be treated
as the wild animals that they
are.
A few months before our
visit to the game reserve, a
party of young adults were
walking in the bush with an
inexperienced game ranger
when they came across a
pride of lions. The game
ranger, instead of firing the
warning shot, panicked and
ran, leaving the visitors on
their own.
They scattered and took
what cover they could behind
trees. One girl, who was 6
months pregnant, was unable
to get away in time. She
crouched down.at.the base of
the nearest tree and prayed as
she had never prayed before.
The male lion went right up
to her and began sniffing her
face. Her most vivid recollec-
tion of this experience was
the foul-smelling breath of


the lion. Fortunately for that
young lady, the inquisitive
male lion, the leader of the
pride, left, taking the rest of
the lions with him. This expe-
rience so traumatized her
that she required months of
psychiatric treatment.
Of great concern in the
game reserve is the black rhi-
nos, which are notorious for
their very aggressive behav-
ior, and will charge without
provocation.
Speaking of rhinos, I must
relate the story about a walk
we went on one morning. We
came across a 3-foot to 4-foot
high dung heap, which our
guide informed us was their
community center where the
rhinos frequently congregat-
ed. They would rub their large
bodies on the surrounding
trees to scratch an itch and
mark their territory. The bark
on these trees was worn
smooth as glass in the
process.
At the start of our walk, our
guide gave us a specific sign
to warn us, if and when he
observed a black rhino near-
by during our walk. If this
happened, we should climb
the nearest tree, or, if time did
not allow, hide behind a
clump of sturdy bushes.
After a long walk, my
friend Leonie and I both
needed to go to the bath-
room. We slipped behind a
secluded clump of bushes
and proceeded to do what we
needed to do.
Before we were able to fin-
ish, we heard the dreaded sig-
nal given out by our guide.
Absolute panic!! What were
we to do? We hastily and pre-
maturely tried to respond,
but never quite made it up
the tree, but squatted down
trying very hard to repress the.
giggles, that threatened to
reveal our hiding.place to the'
irate rhino. Fortunately, rhi-
nos are reportedly short
sighted, and we surfaced un-
scathed, to the relief of eight
thumping hearts.


As we neared our camp on
our return, we were made
aware we were getting close.
The air was filled with the
appetizing smell of bacon and
eggs and fragrant coffee, stir-
ring the very soul, as only
these aromas can do.
One of my highlights: We
showered by starlight in a
roofless structure of woven
elephant grass. Showering
while observing the awesome
Southern Hemisphere Ce-
lestial Extravaganza, with
myriads of shooting stars, on
an otherwise pitch black
night, is something I hope to
do again before I leave this
wonderful world of ours.

'Cat People' is a must-read for cat-lovers heBverageenter


BYTERRI SCHLICHENMEYER
GUEST COLUMNIST
If you are a "dog person,"
you can stop reading right
here. Just go to the comics,
find out who won last night's
game, or check out your
horoscope.
If you are a "cat person,"
though, fold your paper and
pull up a chair. You're going
to want to know all about "Cat
People" by Michael Korda
and Margaret Korda. The
Kordas are kindred spirits,
and you have lots to talk
about.
There's an old saying that a
dog has owners, but a cat has
staff. Cat lovers know that
couldn't be truer. Still, there's
something about that catti-
tude that we love. The Kordas
say that maybe it's because a
cat, while domestic, is still
just a little bit wild.
-Wild or tame, though, cats


A* ."r "l..


know who their friends are,
and they can spot a "soft
touch" a mile away. Margaret
Korda would agree with that,
since she writes about many
cats that have shown up on
the Korda doorstep, looking
for a handout. Some of the
moggies meander inside on
their own. Other cats think
that living with people would
be a CATastrophe, and they
choose the barn or the porch
instead.
And here's another thing
about cats that cat people
would agree upon: much like
potato chips, it's almost im-
possible to have just one. You
have an adult cat and some-
one suggests getting a kitten
to put life into the oldster.
The oldster has a hissy fit and
spurns the kitten, so you get
the little guy a playmate. And
so it goes. Pretty soon, you're
looking at 27 litter boxes, like
one couple that the Kordas

mention in their book. Those
kinds of people the "collec-
tors" are in a CATegory all
by themselves, you know.
Most of this book, howev-
er, is kitty-corner from that
subject: it's about cat lovers
sharing stories about their
feline friends. There's Hooli-
gan, who was named because
of her ruffian appearance.
Mumsie brought her brood in
and promptly abandoned all
pretenses of motherhood.
These stories and Michael
Korda's charming illustrations
are what make this book
shine for animal lovers of all
types.
While I really liked "Cat
People," there was one thing
you need to know if you pick
it up: authors Michael and
Margaret Korda wrote this
book together.
No, I mean really together.
There is little orno delin-
eation between his stories


and her stories. I'm sure it was
meant to be like having a con-
versation with the two au-
thors, but instead since
anecdotes weave between her
telling and his, and back again
- it can be quite jarring to be
reading Mrs. Korda's "voice",
only to suddenly realize that
Mr. Korda is "talking."

"Salamander sandwiches
and great Grecian toads!" said
Dud, lurching into his never-
really-assigned position at the
Mule Barn truck stop's philos-
ophy counter and world
dilemma think tank.
Mavis stood there holding
the pot of Farmer Brothers
coffee as she waited for Dud
to flip his coffee mug to the


correct upright position.
"You want some coffee
before the toads are done?"
she asked.
"Sure," Dud said, laughing.
"lust practicing my epithets."
NMaxis poured. "When you
die you want toads and sala-
mnanders. ,on O.vour head-
stone?"
"No, no, no," Dud said, in
what we'd come to learn was
his quasi-professorial tone.
'"An epithet, dear lady, is a
spontaneous outburst, a
grand flinging of words to the
wild ether that is the very air
we breathe... "
He talks like that some-
times.
"... an expression of poly-
syllabic perfection designed
to both stun and impress
those within hearing range."
Doc looked at me. "I'm suf-
ficiently stunned."

"Me, too."
Mavis filled everyone's
cups. "Going to be one of
those mornings, I guess."
"Let's get this straight," said
Doc. "To stun and impress
people and amaze everyone
on our block, we have to talk
, about salamanders?"
"Of course not, Doc," said
Dud. "It could be anything.
Now I've just been gathering
up a few of those for use later
on, you see, to be used when a
great epithet is called for. Let's
say I walk in here one morn-
ing and you tell me the river
went over its banks last night
and is flooding the south val-
ley.
"That would be a good
time to use salamander sand-
wiches and great Grecian
toads, you see."
"I see. The salamanders
and toads because they both.


reat epithet

like water and the river over-
flowed, and..."
I could see the twinkle in
Doc's eye.
"No," said Dud, "although
you do have a good point
there.
"But you could just as easi-
ly use an epithet like ... 'Well,
put Bluebeard's potatoes in a
sack'!"
Doc looked at me. "Doesn't
have the same stunning effect
as salamander sandwiches."
I nodded.
"How about 'Dear Aunt
Tillie's sainted hairnet'!"'
"B,etter than Bluebeard's
spuds, I think."
Mavis looked at us and
said "Stunning."

have hung banners advertis-
ing "Free Wifi for Customers."
Would-be Web surfers
searching for free wireless
should be cautious, though. It
may be illegal to use a private
wireless network without the
owner's permission.
Throughout the U.S., Star-
bucks coffee shops offer WiFi;
you have to have or set up aT-
Mobile Hotspot account to
use it. (No, you don't have to
use T-Mobile as your cell-'
phone provider.)
Worldwide, most mid-
range and deluxe hotels
today offer some Internet ser-
vice, whether it's in a business
center or in your room via a
hard-wire or wireless connec-
tion.
Pricing varies widely -
some are free, some charge


$25 or more per day so it's
worth asking before you
book.
"From a hotel perspective,
the coverage is really good -
I almost don't have to check
anymore," says Eric Zines, a
Denver-based sales engineer
who travels with a laptop.
"Over the last three or four
years, it's become easier and
easier to use."
In Europe, many hotels
also have a free Internet sta-
tion in the lobby for quick e-
mail checks.
And in busy backpacker
destinations, Internet cafes
are plentiful and relatively
cheap. It's sometimes possi-
ble to hook up your own lap-
top, but it's usually easier to
use the equipment provided.
Finding an Internet cafe
can be tougher in a cos-
mopolitan city like Stock-
holm or L.A., where many
locals have computers in
their homes. But when you
can find an Internet cafe in
the West, you generally get
more than just a seat at a ter-
minal you get a hangout.
"Here, there's coffee and peo-
ple," says Bryan Markkannen,
part owner of the Alpine
Internet Cybercafe in Park
City, Utah.

One is never enough: Tips for


a multiple-pet household


FRANCIS BATTISTA
PET COLUMNIST

As I leaned over the wash
basin this morning, I caught a
side-long reflection of myself
in the mirrored shower door
that gave me pause.
No, nothing to do with
weight or age. The image of
interest was Treat, our effort-
lessly elegant black cat,
perched on my horizontal
back and kneading my blue
sweater. I realized how fortu-
nate I am and how
deprived of such simple plea-
sures are those who don't
share the company of ani-
mals.
To watch one of our cats sit
beside the cat door and bop
other cats with a soft paw as
they enter is just very silly and
very funny. (Imagine if you
hid behind a door at home
and every time another fami-
ly member passed through,
you biffed them in the head
with a foam bat and then
everyone carried on as if
nothing at all unusual had
happened!)
Bismark, our very large,
long-haired shepherd, can be
very intimidating in my unat-
tended car or when letting
out a basso profundo bark at
a stranger's footstep down the
front walk. This makes his
protective and affectionate
relationship with fluffy,
stuffed toys all the more ab-
surd. He doesn't chew them


or tear them. Rather. he car-
ries them gently and posses-
sively in his huge maw, tail
wagging slowly and content-
edly, his big head down and
eyes up with a slight gloating
expression. This sort of thing
gently takes the mickey out of
one's own absurd possessive-
ness of material things.
Walking into the cat quar-
ters with 17 well-fed, content-
ed cats ready for a collective
nap and receiving their slow
blinks of affection and secret
knowledge is as mystical an
experience as a Zen rock gar-
den.
And then there is bedtime.
Since our home doubles as an
extra sanctuary for dogs with
special needs, we have 17
dogs here. Tucking in 34 dogs
and cats (and they do expect
to be tucked in!) demands a
ritual that would make the
Vatican proud. Baby and
Dotty need special feedings,
while the rest of the cats need
compensatory stroking, cud-
dling, and chirruping. The
dogs, arrayed around the
kitchen, catch cookies tossed
to each in turn like in-field
practice. The klutzy dogs -
those who watch the treat sail
in a gentle arc and then let it
bonk them on the noggin -
get direct hand-to-mouth*
passes. The rest execute per-
fect timing with the occasion-
al interception.
Next, everyone goes out
into the yard to tend to late-
night business and then each
to their customary bed and
customary arguments with
the customary dog. Life with-
out them is almost unimagin-
able.
Tips
"'4 Get ve'the" furnititure.
Washable "Indian blanket"
spreads and similar inexpen-
sive coverings are easy main-
tenance, look good, and save
the argument with the dogs.
If your dog, like mine, has a


habit of getting on the table t6
look out the window, dodt
waste your time trying to
train the dog. Move the table!
* Wall-to-wall carpet is an
accident waiting to happen.
Hardwood, tile, vinyl, or stone
with rugs are best.
* Thank goodness for babies.
After all, where would we be
without baby gates? Sure,
some smart alec can always
hop over, but it beats the jail-
break of a dozen dogs rushing
to greet visitors and hous&e-
guests. -
* Comfy washable cat and
dog'beds, the kind you can
toss in the washer, knock the
socks off the kind that need
"some assembly."
* Generous outdoor cat
enclosures, built around or
outfitted with cat trees, give
the kitty monsters the plea-
sure of the great outdoors
without inserting themselves
into the local food chain do
driving the songbirds, chip-
munks, or other small moving
targets from the environr-
ment.
* Lots of shelving and nooks
with washable fluffies for the
cats make for peaceful inter-
feline relations.
* Give the dogs their due:
Feed them in the order of the
hierarchy that .they have
established among theri-
selves, but give them all loads
of attention and let them
know that they are part of the
family. They need this more
than anything.
* Don't start worrying about
what the neighbors think. Just
emulate the upper classes -
they, like you, are completely
eccentric anyway.
