Roll 'em: Theaters




to open March 3


The water basins at Venice Fisherman's Wharf were recently filled in with dirt to make way for
redevelopment. Wharf owner John.Konecnik's floating dock project was terminated after
Sarasota County denied extending his construction permits, and he must apply for new con-
struction permits if his appeal fails.

After several delays, local residents now have less than a month to wait before the Galleria
Stadium 12 Movie Theaters open.


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINESS! COLUMNIST


All it took was a 15-minute
hearing for Frank Theaters for
the ADA Advisory Commis-
sion to approve upgraded
plans for handicap seating in
the new Galleria Stadium 12.
Movie Theater.
"It's. approved and we're
definitely opening in Venice
on March 3," announced
Bruce Frank, director of Frank
Theaters.
Frank stated the theaters
were always in compliance
with national standards, but
Florida requirements are


more demanding. Shortcom-
ings have been resolved with
changes made to each audi-
torium.
The company is operating
under a joint, arrangement
with Galleria Plaza develop-
ers Waterford Companies in
financing the movie theater
and has obtained permission
to construct auditorium No.
12 over the next few months
for opening in die fall.
"Because we were in a hurry
to get the theater open, we de-
layed work on this additional
auditorium," said Frank.
Following a ribbon-cutting
ceremony, the movie theater


will open on Friday, March 3.
Frank said the company usual-
ly stages a, family entertain-
ment event and hopes it will be
able to do this on the plaza.
For the opening all screens
will be filled with scheduled
movies including "Aquama-
rine," Disney's "8 Below," "Ul-
traviolet," "Running Scared"
and "Freedomland." Opening
March 10 is Disney's "Shaggy
Dog."
Time slots for the movies
in the Venice theater will be 1,
4, 7 and 9:30 p.m. Admission
prices are $8.50 .for adults,
and $6 for children, seniors
and matinees before 6 p.m.


John Konecnik says he's ready to sell all of the
Wharf land to a developer if Sarasota County
refuses to permit all 686 feet of his proposed
floating dock.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


- After nearly four years of
fighting and about $1.3 mil-
lion in lost revenue and legal
fees, Venice Fisherman's
Wharf owner John Konecnik
said Tuesday he's about had it.
If Sarasota County rejects
his floating dock, Konecnik
will sell the entire parcel of
land next to Hatchett Creek
Bridge to the first buyer who
offers enough money.


It's unclear who that buyer
could be, but one thing's for
certain -- it will never be
Sarasota County. There has
been a persistent rumor,
which county staff has
denied, that Sarasota County
wants to buy Fisherman's
Wharf and turn it into a pub-
lic marina and park.
Konecnik said he wouldn't
sell it to the county even if it
made an offer, especially after
all his legal wrangling and
hold-ups gaining county


commissioner approval.
"Government has screwed
this up from the start,"
Konecnik said. "I'll sell it to a
developer with the money to
fight it, first....
"It's been fun, but the fun's
about run out. I've got some
other things I want to do
before kicking the bucket."
'No minds have changed'
The Wharf owner has been
attempting to persuade the
county to grant him the 686
feet he originally asked for,
instead of the 400 feet com-
missioners approved in June
2004.

Good morning, Gondolier
Sun subscriber,
DONALD LORENC
;!? .- r ,d" ., ,,


The Venice Avenue draw-
bridge will be getting stairs
and ramps for pedestrians to
be able to cross.
The Sarasota County com-
missioners unanimously ap-
proved the construction con-
tract with Lovin Construction
Inc., for the work after receiv-
ing some clarification from
staff.
The commissioners also


agreed to send a new letter to
Venice officials about their
desire to joining in an agree-
ment to share the costs of
maintaining the appearance
of the bridge. That agreement
would not include the regular
maintenance of the bridge,
which remains acountyfunc-
tion.
The contract for pedestri-
an access is for $576,294 and
would include building two
stairways on the south side of
the bridge on both sides of


the Intracoastal Waterway
It would also include two
Americans with Disabilities
Act-compliant ramps.
Commissioner Shannon
Staub said she has heard
objections to the extra ramps,
saying what the county was
planning to do was "overkill."
She asked for clarification
from staff to allay any con-
cerns the public or city offi-
cials might have.
Ha Tran, of county Public
Works, said the ramps are
necessary to comply with
state and federal regulations.
The ramps will be built as
access rings that conform to
grade : requirements for
wheelchairs.


Tran said the contract is an
add-on to the county's origi-
nal contract to repair the
bridge, work that has already
been finished.
The work will be paid for
through infrastructure surtax
continuation funds and
telecommunication taxes.
50-50 on the finish
This agreement also has a
caveat that would require the
continued maintenance of
the appearance, pending the
approval by Venice City
Council of a joint participa-
tion agreement
The county commission-
ers agreed to enter a joint
agreement with the city for


the upkeep of the look of the
bridge Jan. 10, when they
approved the contract to
paint the bridge in a special
cement-textured finish to
look similar to the other
bridges in Venice that cross
the Intracoastal Waterway.
"We maintain everything
else," said County Adminis-
trator Jim Ley.
Ley added that Venice City
Manager Marty Black in-
formed him city council ob-
jected in principle to the
agreement because they be-
lieved it included the mainte-
nance of the entire bridge,
which was not the intention

County scrutinizing city of Venice annexations


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


If Venice plans to annex as
much property along Laurel
Road as Sarasota County offi-
cials expect, the actions could
eventually lead to a direct
conflict with the county. -
To avoid that conflict,
county commissioners
agreed Tuesday not object to
an annexation application
with the city on the Villa Lago
property on Pinebrook Road.
They took the action during


their regular board meeting.
The vote was 4-0 with com-
missioner Nora Patterson not
present for the vote.
County Attorney Stephen
DeMarsh told commissioners
that while the annexation in
2003 did not technically con-
form with state regulations
because it is not contiguous
to the city, it is too late to file a
challenge for no gain.
"We could make procedur-
al arguments," DeMarsh said.
"It is too far along."
The board agreed not to


formally object to the Villa
Lago annexation.
While the county would
not object to that annexation,
DeMarsh warned the board
of additional land proposed
for annexation.
Land just north of Villa
Lago on Laurel Road, and
potentially other property
north of Laurel Road, in De-
Marsh's opinion, could po-
tentially create a pocket or
enclave of unincorporated
county land the county might
have legal grounds to object


A piece of land called
Princeton Laurel Land Co.
LLC at the southwest comer
of Pinebrook and Laurel
could be the start of a move
by the city to annex property
to the north and beyond.
Parcels to the east of
Pinebrook along Curry Lane
and R and F Ranch Road, are
considered part of unincor-
porated parts of Sarasota
County.
"It's beginning to look like
a pocket," Demarsh said. "It is


going to begin to be difficult
to serve this area if the city
continues its pattern of
annexation closing them
in, in effect."
Troubled
Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton said he struggles with the
concept of annexations be-
cause there is no cut-and-
dried procedure.
"I don't believe the annexa-
tion is in the best interest of

City cited in sewage incident

From the Jan. 27,1975, Venice Gondolier Sun.


STAFF REPORT


The City of Venice was
cited Wednesday by the Sara-
sota County Environmental
Control Department for vio-
lation of two anti-pollution
ordinances.
The county pollution'offi-
cers issued the citation fol-
lowing investigation of a re-
port that city workers let raw
sewage flow unabated 'into


the lake at Country Club
Estates for 12 hours, Jan. 2-3.
The citation orders the city
to explain why the raw
sewage was allowed to flow'
into the small lake after
officials had been notified of
the mishap.
Normally, the sewage for
the 500-unit mobile home
park is supposed to flow into
the city's treatment plant.
However, 'city employees

main there, left work at 4:30G
p.m. Jan. 2 without recon-
necting the main, according
to Robert Konz Jr., manager
of the mobile home park.
Jim Lindsey, public utilities
director at the time, indi-
cated there is an overflow
drain to divert sewage into
the lake in the event of an
emergency, possibly a se-
wage pump failure.
By the time workers deter-
mined that the pipeline was


partially plugged, it was too
late and too dark for work-
ers to fix it, Lindsey reported.
Since the event, Lindsey
has submitted a letter of res-
ignation. It was accepted by
the water board of trustees.
Under the investigation,
pollution control officials
determined that the city had
violated both an ordinance
prohibiting dumping of
wastes and the county's air
and water pollution code, it
was reported.


The weather this week is
so unusual that Tropical Bob
feels the need to write about
it.
The condition is called
"cool" and this area infre-
quently experiences cool
weather. Consequently, some
natives are confused on how
to handle it.
These temperatures, after
all, are more typical of the
Carolinas than Southwest
Florida. We should be 10 de-
grees warmer at any given
hour.
To cope with the unusual
weather, each night T.B. re-
turns to the anciefit practice
of making fire. Here's a quick
refresher: Place a Duralog in a
fireplace. Use a butane lighter

County: Blame state for comp plan objections


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


An attempt by the city of
Venice to make 10 amend-
ments to its comprehensive
plan has run into objections
from the state Depai4tment of
Cormmnuniry Affairs.
,Sarasota County officials
filed comments as part of the
process, and their comments
are being interpreted by city
officials as the reason the
DCA objected to five of the
amendments.
County commissioners re-
ceived a review of the process
from county staff Tuesday
and were told the county
a made no formal objections
to Venice's plan.
"I didn't think we did
object, but to
hear it .from '
the city, we
did and they
are blaming
us for what .
DCA sent
them," said
commission
chair David
Mills. Thaxton
Mills also
said he is troubled by com-
munications between the
county and city staff in recent
weeks.
"I just don't understand
how we got here," he said.
The commissioners were
told by Anne McClung, the
county's planning director, the
comments .sent to the state


were part of the standard
comprehensive plan process
and were not formal objec-
tions, which are taken by DCA
officials with a heavier weight.
"The state's recent adop-
tion of growth management
regulations asking whether or
not you have infrastructure
to support any future growth
is what DCA
objected to," ,
McClung said.
Venice City,
M a n a g e r ', .,.

disagrees with
Sarasota
County staff's
summary The
city has not Mills
had to answer
comprehensive plan ob-
jections by DCA since the
Henry Ranch annexation on
Laurel Road now known as
Venetian Golf & River Club -
more than six years ago.
And that was started when
Sarasota County "raised con-
. cerns" in a memo to DCA.
Claims by county staff that
other agencies had concerns
with North Venice growth
"appears to be completely
fictitious," Black said in an
interview.
DCA said that four of the
amendments are not support-
ed by the transportation study
submitted by the city and that
a new study needs to be done.
The study would need to
support its future land use
changes and to coordinate


CORRECTION
Sarasota County did not "formally object" to five city of Venice
comprehensive plan amendments, as was written in a Feb. 3
story inside the Venice Gondolier Sun. Instead, county staff
stated in its letter to the state it has "concerns regarding the
impacts" of the amendments, followed by three pages ques-
tioning density, transportation and land use issues. City
Manager Marty Black blames the county letter, submitted to
the state without advance notice, for complicating state
approval of the city's comprehensive plan amendments.


any necessary improvements
with the county.
'A mystery'
The county's comments do
address the issue of infra-
structure impacts of a paten-
tial 7,000 new homes in the
area near Laurel Road and
Interstate 75 and the impact
of that much additional traffic
on roads at or near their
planned capacity.
At the crux of the county's
comments and -also DCA's
objections is the fact that the
proposed comp plan changes
do not address improvements
to the roads in the area.
Mills said the city's reaction
to the DCA recommendations
by blaming the county for
commenting bothers him.
"To lose it over it is a mys-
tery to me," Mills said.
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson said she was disturbed
to see the issue going back
and forth and was worried
the county's relationship with
the city would deteriorate as
it did with North Port.
"I am wondering if those
folks are counting on the
same access to 1-75," Pat-
terson said of the planned
development. She also fear-
ed the city was hoping to
link to State Road 72 as an
outlet for the anticipated
traffic, something the county
would have to pay for.


"I don't
think that is
fair and it
shouldn't be
assumed,"
she said.
SA similar y "
proposal was
made by
North Port Patterson
officials to
extend Toledo Blade Boule-
vard to State Road 72 and
expect the county pay for that
link.
The linchpin
Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton said much ,of what the
DCA officials objected to did
not originate from the coun-
ty, but actually from the
Southwest Florida Regional
Planning Council.
"They have made many
recommendations about
Laurel Road and no one fromin
the city has ever objected,"
Thaxton said. "I just don't
understand why they are
surprised by DCA's response."
He noted that the extra
traffic will also add to the con-
gestion on U.S. 41 in'the area
and require about $100 mil-
lion in improvements to the
stretch from State Road 681
to Gulf Gate Boulevard.
Venice Mayor Dean Cala-
maras recently sent a letter
to the county expressing his
frustration and disappoint-

ment that the county failed
to support the relocation of
concrete plants from the
Intracoastal Waterway to
Knights Trail Road.
County Administrator Jim
Ley said the county has
been in full and active sup-
port in helping the concrete
plants move.
He said the DCAs objection
stems from a concern that the
city's Future Land Use Map
designation does not have an
intensity standard to guide
nonresidential development
and suggests the city adopt
such a standard.
Jeff Russell, a plant owner
who is directly affected by the
DCA decision, was able to
persuade the commissioners
to send a letter to DCA clarify-
ing its comments about traffic
impacts and his plant arid not
to" include his property in


that discussion.
"The amendment is the
linchpin to my being able to
move," Russell said.
County officials were not
sure such a
letter would .:
help, but
agreed to
draft one.
"We have
no control ..-,
over what the ....
city does with
-its' amend-
.ments," Ley Ley
said.
"It is up to rne and the city
to convince the DCA to get
this fixed," Russell said.

New apartment district condos pass first hurdle


BY JJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

After more than two hours
of testimony and public in-
put, the Venice Planning Com-
mission recommended ap-
proval of a rezoning request
that would increase density
in the city's Historic Apart-
ment District.
Many residents protested
increasing density from 13
units an acre to 18, but nearly
every person questioned the
proposed building's height
and massing. All but one of
the buildings in the district is
two stories or less.
The project, called Kelley's
Way, could be four stories
with maximum heights of 54
feet. All other existing build-
ings are 31 feet or less.
"I'll live right next to this
monstrosity," said Ernestine
O'Connell, owner of a single-
family home. "How would you
feel if your house was next to
it, and they put up a 45-foot
wall next to you? ... It's the
beginning of the end of the
island of Venice."
The planning commission
passed the rezoning request
unanimously. Now it heads to
city council for final approval.
Two staff restrictions were
placed on the project. One
was a maximum height of 45
feet, the other that residential
rules for setbacks and mass-
ing be applied.
The RMF-4 zoning allows,
with conditional use approv-
al, up to 95 feet. Existing


zoning for Kelley's Way allows
for height up to 85 feet.
"The height really is not an
issue," planning chairman
John Osmulski said to one
resident.
Up to $1.5 million
This is the second project in
the apartment district by
developer Kevin Ward. Some
residents were unhappy with
his other development along
Armada Road, Park Boul-
evard and Menendez Street
because of its four-story
height and massing and the
fact it displaced 14 workforce
housing rental units with
nine million-dollar condo-
miniums.
Pending council approval,
Kelley's Way would rezone
1.3 acres of land along Park
Boulevard, Menendez Street
and Palmetto Court. Ad-
dresses affected include 225
Park Blvd., 528 Menendez St.,
and 454, 456 and 458 Palmetto
Court.
Ten apartment units, two
duplexes and a single-family
home would be replaced by
23 condominium units, rang-
ing from 1,600 square feet to
3,200 square feet. Ward esti-
mates these condominiums
to start at $720,000 and top
out at $1.5 million.
History
In the 1920s, original city
planner John Nolen mapped
out the apartment district for
workforce and rental housing
that encompasses the area


GRAPHIC COURTESY OF K-5 REALTY
Residents of the Historic Apartment District spoke against proposed zoning cHanges at 225 Park Blvd., 528 Menendez St., and
454, 456 and 458 Palmetto Court. Developers hope to build a 23-unit condominium complex, as shown in this conceptual


drawing, called Kelley's Way.

bordered by Granada Road,
Harbor Drive, Armada Road
and Park Boulevard, accord-
ing to the historical marker at
John Nolen Park.
By 1928, there were 11
apartment buildings along
Menendez and Armada, and
nearly every one of them
remain operating as rental
housing.
None of the buildings slat-
ed for demolition is consid-
ered historic, despite being
within the apartment district.
As for keeping the apart-
ment district as rental hous-
ing, Ward sees that as the
way of the past. Costs of
construction, land acquisi-
tion, insurance and more all
but make creation of new
rental buildings in the city's
80-year-old rental district


impossible.
"It's important to under-
stand the economics of what's
happening on the island,"
said Jeff Matthews, planner
for Kelley's Way. "What people
want to have here in Venice, it
doesn't exist anymore."
Also on Tuesday
Other items listed on Tues-
day's agenda:
Venetian Gateway Over-
lay changes The planning
commission recommends
city council approve applying
the Venetian Gateway Over-
lay rules to a portion of East
Venice Avenue that was origi-
nally excluded when the
rules were created 15 years
ago. This includes the first tier
of parcels adjacent to the
southern side between U.S.

School district wins charter school appeals


The Florida appeal commission upholds the
Sarasota County School Board's decision to deny


two charter school applic

BYGREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

The Sarasota County
School Board's claimed two
legal victories last week when
Florida's Charter School Ap-
peal Commission upheld
decision its to deny two char-
ter school applications.
The committee rendered
its decision on Friday follow-
ing two days of testimony.
In its ruling, the commis-
sion sided with the school
board's position that it had
"statutory good cause" under.
current charter school law to
deny the applications last


ants.

year.
"It's important to have
choices in our schools ...
choices that are not, substan-
dard," said school board pres-
ident Carol Todd.
School district attorney Art
Hardy called the decision a
"good step."
The Florida State Board of
Education will have the final
say. It will review the appeal
commission's recommenda-
tion to uphold the school
board's decision at its next
meeting.
School district administra-
tor Mike McHugh also sits on
the statewide Charter School


Appeal Commission, but had
to recuse himself from the
proceedings. McHugh is di-
rector of pupil support ser-
vices for Sarasota County
School District, serving as the
lead administrator handling
charter school issues for the
last six years.
The applicants
Oct. 18 Sarasota County
School Board denied all five
charter school applications
filed this school year, includ-
ing ones for Summit
Academy Management, a
charter school that serves
special needs students based
out of Copley, Ohio, and
Challenge Foundation
Academy, the only applicant
to receive a satisfactory rating
by the local school district's
Charter Review Committee.


The board's decision to
deny CFA's application was in
large part based on the appli-
cant's relationship with an-
other Venice charter school,
The Student Leadership
Academy. The proposed
charter was to be housed in
the same building as SLA and
share its principal.
School board members
said SLAs rocky start (SLA was
being sued over a contract
with its founding principal at
the time) and declining en-
rollment were valid grounds
to deny the charter. CFA offi-
cials argued the school board
wrongly focused on its ties to
SIA and not the merits of
CFA's application.
The school board found
Summit Academy's school
design inadequate, question-
ing how the school would


meet the "highly qualified"
provision of the No Child Left
Behind Act, especially in
multi-grade classrooms.
Summit's appeal stated it
intended to tap into a glut of
certified teachers willing to
relocate from existing Ohio
schools.
It also disputed the dis-
trict's "unsubstantiated"
claim that Summit was un-
able to measure FCAT.perfor-
mance goals and objectives
as required by law.
The reasoning
In separate rulings, the
commission confirmed the
school board's original find-
ings that Summit Academy
Management was unable to
show adequate performance
outcomes; didn't provide fis-
cal accountability; lacked


resources and community
support; showed budget
errors; and was statutorily
deficient in its ability to prove
the school could come up
with certified teachers and in
its educational design.
The commission found
CFA was unable to identify a
community need as required
and didn't provide a suffi-
ciently different format from
Venice's already existing
Student Leadership Academy.
The commission also
found that the board did fol-
low its own policy in making
the rulings.
CRA argued the superin-
tendent was supposed to
make the ruling, and not
lower-level administrators.
Attorneys for both plain-
tiffs were unavailable for
comment at press time.

BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

School district officials
confirmed this week a Venice
High teacher has been
charged with inappropriate
behavior of a sexual nature
with a minor, and removed
from the classroom.
Math teacher Thomas
Berntsen, 47, was arrested
after school Friday by sheriff's
officers for lewd or lascivious
conduct upon a child, report-
edly for forcing the son of a
woman he was dating to fon-
dle him nearly two years ago.
Bemtsen was held at the
Sarasota County jail and
released Monday after mak-
ing bail. He was placed on
paid administrative leave by
the Sarasota County School
District until the outcome of
the case is determined.
The sheriff's office began
its investigation after looking i


into allegations made in
October by a Sarasota woman
who became uncomfortable
with Berntsen's behavior
toward her 12-year-old son
and other children at her
Sarasota apartment complex.
The complainant said
Bemtsen swam with the boys
in the complex's pool and
showed up at the skate park
where they played, bringing
the boys candy bars, accord-
ing to an incident report filed
Oct. 9.
The mother said she for-
bade her son to talk to
Berntsen or enter his apart-
ment anymore, and found
out other parents had done
the same. The son did not
report any lewd behavior at
the time, states the report,
filed by Deputy Eve Stacey.
Sgt. Christopher lorio fol-
lowed up on the case, inter-
xiewing the boy in Nov ember
at Laurel Nokomis School.


"It was apparent that the
contact with Mr. Berntsen
was not normal," said Sgt.
Iorio. "However, I could find
no state statute that had been
violated."
Sgt. Iorio said Berntsen's
numerous jobs since becom-
ing a school teacher made
,him suspicious as Bemtsen
was still fairly young for a
school teacher.
"I also asked Mr. Bemtsen
if I contacted all the previous
schools if there would be any
other suspicious reports.
(His) response was he did not
think so, which I felt to be
very suspicious," lorio said.
In Iorio's incident report,
Berntsen said the 'contact
with the boy was casual, but
he did admit it was inappro-
priate to have that type of
relationship with a juvenile.
Since then, Sarasota
County Sheriffs. working \with
lManatee Countr Sheriff's


Office, have put together
enough evidence to make an
arrest.
Last year James LaMorte, a
longtime Venice High teacher
and coach, was charged with
forcing numerous high
school boys to engage in sex
acts with him 20 years ago.
That trial is scheduled for
April.

ing of the finish.


of the county's proposed
agreement.
"No decision has been
made on their end," Ley said.
"We only want to split the
costs 50-50 on the (cement)
finish only."
The commissioners re-
quested Ley clarify the coun-
ty's intent with Black in hopes
of reaching an agreement.
Ley said that if the city
objects to the joint mainte-
nance of the appearance,
there is a clause in the pedes-
trian access construction


Another contract
Lucas Marine Construc-
tion Inc. of Stuart, the lowest
of four bidders, was awarded
a $1,362,644.46 contract to
replace the short-span Cas-
persen Beach Bridge, which
connects Harbor Drive to a
spoil island east of Caspersen
Beach.
At more than 50 years old,
the current bridge is at the
end of its design life.
The new bridge will be
extended slightly to 33 feet,


and widened to accommo-
date a sidewalk on the south
side. It is designed to provide
safe and reliable access to the
island for 75 years.
Aside from the addition of
a sidewalk, the project in-
cludes the replacement of
seawalls under the bridge and
aesthetic improvements. The
existing vertical navigational
clearance for boats will re-
main the same.
The contract calls for sub-
stantial completion within
210 days. Funding will be pro-
vided by the infrastructure
surtax and gasoline taxes.

the people of Sarasota Coun-
ty," Thaxton said.
He recommended sending
notification to the city that "if
the (Princeton) parcel is an-
nexed, it would be very difficult
to move forward for the county
and that the county would
have objections. We need to
stop it now and begin a more
productive relationship with
the city." The board approved
sending such a notice.
The county owns a piece of
land on the west side of
Pinebrook, between the Villa


Lago and Princeton proper-
ties that prevents a possible
linkage from taking place.
That property is a storm-
water management parcel for
Pinebrook Road and is re-
quired to stay in county own-
ership, DeMarsh said.
He added that the annexa-
tion of any land by the city
north of Laurel Road would
likely receive tentative ap-
proval from the state.
"It is legal on a continuity
question, but it may cut off
access to other areas and
could create different issues,"
DeMarsh said.


He admitted that ,the ulti-
mate decision on the legality
of annexations and the ability
to create enclaves is up to a
judge's interpretation.'
Commissioner Shannon
Staub earlier recommended
the board have a joint meet-
.ing with the Venice City
Council to discuss such issues
as annexation so there tis bet-
ter communication.
Commission chair David
Mills said earlier in the meet-
ing said he is troubled by the
communication between the
county and the city on several
issues.

and Sarasota County recently
denied a fourth extension to
Konecnik's construction per-
mits.
That puts Konecnik's con-
troversial floating .dock pro-
ject back at square one.
Howard Berna, Sarasota
County environmental su-
pervisor of resource protec-
tion, said Fisherman's Wharf
must cease all dock work,
reapply for a permit and start
all over.
Konecnik is attempting to
reverse the extension denial,


but as of Tuesday, no infor-
mation has been submitted,
said County Administrator
Jim Ley.
Ley also said Sarasota
County has no interest in pur-
chasing Fisherman's Wharf.
'A representative for Mr.
Konecnik has indicated a
desire to submit additional
information in support of
extension of the permit," Ley
said. "He has not done so as
yet, and therefore no minds
have been changed. Another
of his representatives has
expressed his desire to extend


the dock. This would in effect
be starting over and a 'new'
permit."
'A shame'
Starting over has the
potential to get what Ko-
necnik wants 686 feet of
dock or nothing at all no
dock approval of any kind.
Konecnik has been granted
approval for the entire dock.,
by all other regulatory agen-
cies.
Any decision that brings in
less than the 686 feet Ko-
necnik wants will lead him to


sell to a big-name developer.
Konecnik has always envi-
sioned wide waterfront walk-
ways; a 686-foot floating dock
with almost half of it reserved
for transient boaters; a
restaurant; and various small
stores. The wharf owner said
this would guarantee public
access to the water in a time
when condominium projects
are buying up all waterfront
areas.
And to pay for this $60 mil-
lion redevelopment project,
Konecnik wants a private
developer to build a nine-


story, 58-unit condominium
similar in height and size to
the Waterfront on Venice
.Island towers just on the
other side of Hatchett Creek
Bridge.
Take away the docks, he
says, and there's no reason to
keep fighting. He'll finally sell
out to the highest bidder and
let the entire patch of land go
private.
Konecnik plans on passing
out flyers to his neighbors
that detail his version of the
project's history. At the end of
the three pages, he asks peo-


ple to choose between a
marina project or condo-
miniums and then provides
county commissioner e-mnail
addresses.
"This is it," Konecnik said.
"If we don't get the majority of
docks we agreed with (Gov.
Jeb) Bush and the (state) cab-
inet, we're done. ... We've
been trying to save this for the
public since 1998. It'd be a
shame to leave it."

Proposed dredging of

basin wins support


Opening on CRA advisory board


BY DB REDDY
STATE WRITER .

Dredging permits can be
hed to come by, especially if
ifttre is some question about
vwether the proposed area
hs ever been dredged before.
That's the problem facing a
company .that wants to
credge the Boca GrandeYacht
3asin to a depth of 7 feet.
Attorney Michael Hay-
nans said his client, Harbor
Drive LLC, wants to dredge an
area on the east side of
Gasparilla Island at the en-
Strance to the Boca Grande
bayou.
Haymans received the
J agreement last week of the
West Coast Inland Navigation
District board to co-apply for
the necessary permits from
the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection.
S"The DEP said they would
be more accepting of the
application if the district was
involved," he said.
The area is as shallow as 4
feet, and vessels are running
aground on a daily basis,
Haymans said..
Th'e owners applied for a
similar dredging permit sev-
eral years ago for an area in
front of Millers Marina, now
Sthe Boca Granide Marina.
Haymans said DEP offi-
cials originally balked at the
earlier dredging because
there is no clear history the
area was dredged before..
"1 have a map at my home
Which shLows that it was
dredged inh the late 1800s," he
said. "Historically, it is not
natural."
Golden opportunity
Board'members, who are
county commissioners from
Charloe, Lee,' Sarasota and
Manatee counties, were a lit-
tle wolried about joining a
permit application without
some -ssurances.
The' said they wanted the
-propey, which is-owned by
two marinas, to have public
access forever, but the board
attorney said there is an
agreement for five years of
access.
"You are not going to get
more than that," said Philip
Peney.
Charles Listowski, the
executive director of the dis-,
trict, said joining the applica-
tion is a golden opportunity.
"It addresses the local issue
of public access," Listowski
said. i
SHaymans tried to put
everyone at ease by saying the
upland portion of the proper-
ty would remain open to the
public. The east wall anchor-
age)in the basin and finger
canals are also open to the
public.
Beyond that, he said the
current owners are not willing
to "encumber the property
with any restrictions,"' Hay-
mans added.
Manatee County Commis-
sioner Joe McClash said join-
ing in the permit was in the
best interest of the district
"We can't make them have
their docks open to the public
forever," McClash said. "There
is a need there. The channel

has been public access forev-
er."
Haymans did say DEP offi-
cials did have some objec-
tions to the possibility of the
dredge chopping up grassy
flats.
DEP typically requires
planting of grasses outside of
a dredge area if any is going to
be destroyed.
Some commissioners were
worried about linking to a
permit that would harm the
grasses, but McClash said the
vessels running aground are
just as bad as any dredge
would be.
"They can be reclaimed
somewhere else," he said.
Other board members
were also concerned about
being a part of an application
that might be rejected, but.
Haymans said the district has
the ability to "divorce itself
from this if you don't feel it is
right."

I Anyone who has ever com-
plained about what is hap-
pening in the area and want-
ed to do something about it
now has a chance to make an
impact.
There is an opening on the
Englewood Community Re-
development Agency Advis-
ory Board, and people have
until Feb. 17 to apply.
Chris Davis, the CRA man-
ager for Sarasota County, said
there has been an opening
ever since Bob Sisum
resigned from the advisory
board in December. He was
first appointed in July 2004,
and his replacement would
fill out his four-year term
until July 2008.
"It is important that we fill
this position soon," Davis
said.
The CRA currently encom-
passes 4,400 acres centered at
Dearborn Street and Indiana
Avenue and includes portions
of Manasota Key to the west,

Overbrook Gardens to the
north, the Morris Industrial
Park to the east, and the
Charlotte County line to the
south.
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Shannon Staub said
she hopes people who have
special skills and talents will
apply for the board spot.
"I think the !CRA advisory
board is becoming, one of
most critical boards in the
county, with all of the exciting
things which are going on,"
Staub said.
The CRA is now going
through a market analysis to
help guide it through future
development.
Money well spent
The CRA uses tax incre-
ment financing, in a process
where money is accumulated
through property taxes that
are above the based rate set in
1998, when the CRA was first
developed.
Any increase in property
values and subsequent
increase in taxes above the


base is put into the CRA fund.
As with any CRA, the first
few years generate very little
money, but as time has
passed, the pot generated
each year has grown to where
bonding becomes a viable
option.
One reason the increases
in recent years have been so
much larger, is the fact that
Manasota Key is part of the
CRA and its large homes
account for a large portion of
the tax revenue.
CRA money has been put
into street lighting on West
Dearborn Street,. the brick
pavers there and business
storefront improvements. Fu-
ture money could be used for
any projects the advisory
board supports and the coun-
ty commissioners approve.
The only qualification for
applicants is that they live
within thd confines of the
CRA in Sarasota County.
To pick up an application,
go to the CRA office at 2 Old
Englewood Road, at the end
of West Dearborn Street, or go


online at www.scgov.net. '
To learn more about the
application process and the
CRA, call Davis at (941) 473-
9795.

Advanced purchase for roads to be debated


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Buying land in advance of
expected road expansion or
building projects has become
very expensive.
The need to purchase the
land in advance in order to
speed up projects and to save
money before the costs get
too out of control is at the
heart of a discussion planned
Wednesday by Sarasota
County commissioners.


Deputy County Adminis-
trator David Bullock said the
existing policy has been a big
benefit for the county, saving
money as land values have
rapidly increased.
"We have to buy a tremen-.
dous amount of propertyfor the
projects we do," Bullock said. "If
you wait to buy land, at that
point you hold up the project."
Bullock cites the example of
the Snook Haven property as
one in which the county found
a willing seller and the property


met several needs.
The land is 2.2 acres on the
Myakka River, east of River
Road, near the eastern end of
Venice Avenue. It was found
while county staffers were
searching for property for the
Englewood Interstate Con-
nector.
Willing sellers
The county established the
advance right-of-way acquisi-
tion fund to address future road
needs included in the county's


2020 Thoroughfare Plan.
The acquisition fund in-
cludes creating developer set-
asides; parcels for future
pond sites, flood plain or mit-
, igation areas; future roadway
corridors; and homes along
proposed project routes.
The advanced purchase
program is limited to willing
sellers and has been in use for
more than a decade.
County real estate man-
agers have been very success-
ful in buying land well in ad-


vance ofmanyprojects, includ-
ing McIntosh Road, BahiaVista
Street, Webber Street, Proctor
Road, Honore Extension (Pine-
brook to County.Road 681), to
name a few.
Advanced right-of-way ac-
quisition provides financial
benefits, but also presents
various challenges, a staff
report for the meeting states.
Advanced purchases are
typically kept to a minimum
because project details are
typically not known until


about 60 percent of th de- 1
sign phase is completed
Other challenges intude
state and federal restricbns,
which come if a project re-
ceives outside funding.
Such restrictions slowthe
acquisition process and tdd
to the cost of a project. :
The commissioners vill
hear the staff presentation dir-
ing their 1:30 p.m. sessionWd-
nesday, at the Sarasota Couity
Administration Center, 160,
Ringling Blvd. in Sarasota. ;


FDACS grant opens possibility for tree analysis


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


Analyzing damage to trees
after a hurricane can be tricky
at best.
Fallen trees are obvious,
but latent damage, which can
cause a tree to die or fall after
time passes; injuring some-
one or possibly blocking
evacuation, is much more dif-
ficult.
Sarasota County recently
agreed to a contract with the
Florida Department of Agri-
cultural and Consumer Serv-
ices for a grant of $46,281. The
county commissioners ap-
proved the contract and the
grant during their Jan. 24
meeting as part of their con-


sent agenda.
The money will go toward
the licensing of advanced
satellite imagery and pur-
chasing of a sonar-type de-
vice to measure the internal
integrity of trees that may
have been damaged by expo-
sure to the high winds of trop-
ical storms and hurricanes.
The technology will permit
the forestry division of the
Public Works department to
detect and deal with hazards
and obstacles during a hurri-
cane.
Demetra McBride, the
county's forestry manager,
said the grant provides an
enormous help to identifying
trees that may collapse.
"The multi-spectral, high-


resolution satellite imagery
can detect damage we could-
n't possibly find on our own,"
McBride said. "It's really quite
impressive what it can do
compared to what we have
now."
Clearing the way
The county will use a con-
tractor to examine the images


for tree canopy analysis and
expansion of the county's
existing tree inventory. The
images of the tree canopy and
crown will enable the Forestry
Division to distinguish inva-
sive from noninvasive species
and detect trees in decline or
failure.
"Finding the invasive spe-
cies is very important,


because they can pose a
greater risk during a storm,"
McBride said.
Australian pines toppled
easily during hurricanes
Charley and Wilma.
"We see what happened
elsewhere and know the
risks," McBride said.
The county actively tries to
eradicate invasive species to


clear the way for native trees.,
The remaining grant mon-
ey will go toward the pur-
chase of a Resistograph, a de-
vice that measures, cavity
resistance in, the interior
trunks of trees, and uncovers
rot, damage or instability that
would otherwise be unde-
tectable, even upon close
inspection.

Staub promotes 'green' growth policies


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


Sustaining the growth of
Sarasota County without
compromising the needs of
future generations is at the
core of nearly everything
Sarasota County government
does.
This was the message de-
livered Monday morning by
Commissioner Shannon
Staub at the monthly break-
fast meeting of the Economic
Development Corp. of Sara-
sota County at the Boca
Royale Golf & Country Club.
Staub promoted the the
idea of linking the economic,
environmental and social as-
pects of the community a
concept known as sustain-
ability.
She said the county is
striving to build "green" and
preserve the environment for
future generations.
This is being done through
the environmentally sensitive
lands acquisition program,
building new government
buildings as "green" as possi-
ble and encouraging busi-
nesses to do the same.
The county has a program
of hybrid/alternative fuel \e-
hicles and is active in in-
creasing its solar-powered
traffic signals.
"There is so much we are
doing," Staub said. "It is very
exciting."
Ensuring the future
Many groups exist to sup-
port the social needs of the
community.! Staub said vol-
unteering and mentoring
cani go a long way to im-
proving the fabric of the
community.
The economic efforts in-
clude the work of the Eco-
nomic Development Council,
which can point to 16 new
businesses starting in Sara-
sota County making more
tian $74 million in capital
investments and bringing in
500 new jobs at an average
salary of $39,475.
The tourism industry ac-
counts for $800 million in
revenue for the area each
year and the arts generates
about $125 million.
As impressive as those
numbers are, Staub remind-
ed everyone of. the growing
issue of workforce housing.
A Community Housing
Trust has been formed to set
aside land for affordable
housing to be placed in per-
petuity.
Anyone who buys a home
on trust land will be able to
gain the equity of the home,
but the land and ultimately
the home value remains,
allowing the next buyer to buy
at a lower price.
"We don't want people
going out and selling for a
huge profit when we need it
to stay affordable," Staub said
of the idea of the trust.
Sarasota County comrnis-
sioners have committed to
using a large portion of the
county's share of the North
Port tax lot sale for the trust.
"Every decision we make
today will have an impact
on generations to come."
Staub concluded. "We are
taking the first, important
steps to ensure the future."
Great strides
The Economic Develop-
ment Council also heard a
business update from Wendy
Brandon, the chief executive
officer of Englewood Com-
munity Hospital.
Brandon, who has been
the CEO of the hospital for
less than a year, said the hos-
pital has a huge economic
impact on the region.
The 400 or so employees
earn more than $20 million.
and the hospital purchases
about $7 million in supplies
each year.
Celebrating its 20th an-
niversary this year, the hos-
pital handles 24,000 out-
patient visits and 17,000
emergency room visits; there
are 1,900 surgeries and 4,000


patients stays at the 100-bed
hospital.
There are about 200 people
who volunteer at the hospital,


and there are about 120
physicians.
"We are making great
strides," Brandon said.
The hospital has imple-
mented a new bar code
scanning program to prevent
medication errors. There has


also been a $1.2 million
equipment upgrade.
"In 2006, we are going
through an emergency room
renovation," Brandon said.
"Come visit us in the fall and
it will be beautiful."
The work is being done


starting in late spring to
avoid a conflict with the
busy season.
Another effort is to join
with Manatee Community
College to recruit and educate
nurses locally.
The hospital also actively


encourages physicians to put
their roots in the Englewood
area.
The next breakfast of the
Economic Development
Council is at 7:45 a.m. March
6 at the Van Wezel Perform-
ing Arts Hall in Sarasota. For

Council at 309-1200 or e-mail

F DOT highway study may save lives


She Florida Department of Transpor-
tation is now conducting a much need-
ed engineering study of 1-75 in Sarasota
and Charlotte counties. We hope FDOT will
be able to save lives when it is completed.
The last study was made in 1996. Even
then, traffic was traveling at speeds higher
than the 70 mph limit established by the
Florida Legislature.
The Bureau of Highway Statistics ranks
Florida roads: as third most dangerous in
numbers of highway fatalities, with Cal-
ifornia first and Texas second. California's
population is close to 34 million, Texas, 22.5
million. Florida's population is said to be 17.5
million.
New York, with 19.2 million people, has.
half as many highway deaths as Florida.
Why are deaths here more than double
those in New York, where there is ice and


snow all winter?
Skilled traffic engineers are said to be able
to reduce the number of crushed bodies,
smashed faces and deaths.
The Federal Highway Administration,
which governs the nation's roads, issues a
Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices.
Studies are to be done every five years, and
more often if conditions change.
FDOT and all other state highway depart-
ments must follow the MUTCD regulations
or risk losing federal funding. To set speed
limits or install stop lights, studies must be
made of Florida's streets, roads and high-
ways. Changes along a road that require
more frequent studies to be conducted
include new strip malls, shopping centers
and subdivisions.
FDOT has sent us reports on busy U.S. 41
and State Road 776. Most of these reports in-


volve one- or two-hour spot checks, not actu-
al engineering studies.
Florida is not alone in ignoring some
MUTCD regulations. Most states pick and
choose which federal regulations they follow,
although doing so is illegal. MUTCD was
established so a person driving from Min-
nesota to Florida will find highway rules and
signs to be the same the entire route.
The Florida Department of Transportation
lists highway safety as its primary goal. Yet
the Florida Highway Patrol reports more than
3,000 people died on the state's roads in 2004,
and 2005 may equal or surpass that number
as roads grow busier.
If saving lives is FDOT's No. 1 goal, does it
have enough money in its budget to do the
job?
Ironically, our counties and cities have
ample funds to provide ambulances to assist


crash victims. But are we spending enough to
prevent crashes?
Safety experts, such as Chad Dornsife,
founder of the Best Highway Safety Practices
Institute, contends that too many decisions
nationally are based on the ability to raise
money by ticketing drivers.
One issue involves speed. MUTCD re-
quires speed limits to be set by measuring the
speed of 85 percent of all motorists on the
highway when traffic is a "free flowing."
The Florida Legislature set the top speed
on the interstates at 70 miles an hour, an
action that Dornsife says is illegal under
MUTCD regulations. The current study of I-
75 will probably show most drivers are going
faster than 70.
We'll be interested in how the governor
and Legislature react when that study comes
out.


Will Venicefollow


foundation's lead?

ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST


The prospects for what is
increasingly being 'called
"North Venicer hegngvs.ome-
thing much better than an
uninspired mass of dense
development took a big step
forward as a result of more
than 35 people meeting: ma-
jor builders, architects, plan-7
ners, county and city officials
brought together by Teri Han-
sen, president and CEO of
Gulf Coast Community Foun-
dation of Venice.
The planning process, call-
ed a charettee" by architects,
was led by the Sarasota firm
Totems, hired by the founda-
tion to help plan its 146-acre
site and to stimulate discus-
sion among other developers.
The meetings spread over five
days and received enthusias-
tic participation.
Venice City Manager Marty
Black was a participant in the
meetings, offering hope that
city council will assign Black,
a professional planner, to
work with his planning and
zoning staff to continue look-
ing at ways to develop an
attractive and citizen-friendly
plan for the area.
Recent annexations and
planning and zoning changes,,
in the Laurel and Border
roads area have emphasized
maximum density.
While the city looks at each
plot following its guidelines, it
has not taken the initiative to
put together the kind of pub-
lic-private discussions that
the foundation has made
possible. A forward-looking
council several members
have expressed interest in
such planning could ask
Black and staff to follow up on
the foundation's efforts.
Working cooperatively
with developers and the'
county might bring commu-
nity spaces including features
such as parks, kiosks ,and
bandshells, swimming pools;
passive use of environmen-
tally sensitive lands; walkabil-
ity to commercial areas; and
more. How the commercial
spaces could complement
each other and not become
redundant strip areas was
one topic discussed by the
developers.
Council should ask Black
to head such an effort and
report on his progress. Per-
haps the city would offer


workshop sessions with the
interested parties prior to
granting future zoning ap-
provals and planning chang-
es.
The possibility of a better
and larger Venice, not one or
the other, exists.
Developers including Mike
Miller of Waterford Proper-
ties, Wayne Ruben of Ruben-
Holland and representatives
of J&J Homes and Casto
Lifestyle Properties, among
others, volunteered to partici-
pate in the meetings.
Hansen and 4Marjorie
'Fidyd, vice president for mar-
keting and communication,
said the developers shared
experiences, which was very
helpful to the foundation,
and also embraced the idea of
trying to integrate their plans
for a larger, community good.
Hansen gave as one exam-
ple decision by the founda-
tion and Miller to align their
entrance roads and to share a
road winding through the
properties, rather than to
build two uncoordinated pas-
sages.
Making the area pedestri-
an-friendly included infor-
mation from a traffic engineer
,detailing how far sidewalks
need to be from streets and
what buffering they might
need in order for people to
feel comfortable enough to
use them near busy streets.,
The foundation's plans
would combine areas where
"market-priced" housing
would be mixed with more
affordable housing the dif-
ference being that the mar-
ket-priced housing owners
would own the land under
their structure.
An independent, nonprofit
entity, such as a housing trust,
would own the land under the
affordable housing and the
occupant would have a land
lease, but not ownership., If
the property appreciated, as
might be expected, the occu-
pants would share some of
the gains upon'sale with the
housing trust. '
., Hansen used the word
"sustainable" in several con-
texts to describe the founda-
tion's plans for its develop-
ment. She mentioned four
dimensions.
In the environmental area,
the goal would be to preserve
and, in fact, enhance the en-
vironment, developing only
55 of the 146 acres and em-
phasizing and identifying var-
ious plantings for enjoyment
and education. Habitats for
birds and other animals
would be preserved and cre-
ated.
In the building domain,
materials and construction
would be chosen for long life
and for energy and water con-

LEVHA wERS FROM OUR READERS


VHA works well with county, foundation


Editor:
At a recent public workshop called by the Venice Housing
Authority, certain concerned citizens criticized the contribu-
tion, or lack thereof, made by Sarasota County and Gulf Coast
Community Foundation of Venice toward VHA's efforts to
increase low-income housing opportunities.
The purpose of the workshop was to invite public comment
on VHIAs redevelopment plan for Grove Terrace. VHA's role was
simply to record these comments, which were subsequently
reported by local media. Over the past two weeks, I have been
approached by members of the public who are curious to
knowVHA's position on these criticisms.
As regards the relationship between VHA and the Office of
Housing & Community Development, its director, Dona
Hadsell, and I have had an excellent relationship during my
tenure, and he and his staff have provided necessary guidance
whenever it was requested. There is an irony in that the public
workshop was requested by OHCD as part of the process
whereby the VHA could qualify for a grant administered by the
OHCD.
Gulf Coast Community Foundation of Venice supported the
VHA in launching its self-sufficiency program and for that gen-
erosity, VHA remains grateful. In our discussions concerning
low-income housing, the parties agreed VHA's interest did not
fit with the foundation's plan for the Laurel Road property.
We continue to share a commitment toward enhancing the
quality of life for all citizens in the city of Venice while recog-
nizing our relative areas of concentration. As with the OHCD,
we anticipate a continuing excellent relationship. with the
foundation.

Help is out there
for ALS victims
Editor:
Thursday night, many
Venice Area residents were
captivated by actor James
Woods' portrayal of a man
battling amyotrophic lateral
sclerosis Lou Gehrig's dis-
ease --on the NBC TV drama
"E.R."
Woods superbly brought
to light the suffering this ter-
minal disease brings as it pro-
gressively weakens muscles
to the point of total paralysis.
ALS can also take a person's
ability to breathe, speak and


eat, but leaves mental func-
tion intact.
For some Venice residents,
ALS is more than just TV
drama: It is their everyday
reality. However, help and
hope is available to them
from the Muscular Dystrophy
Association, the world leader
in ALS research and services.
Along with its research
seeking treatments and a cure
for ALS, MDA provides top-
notch health care for people
with ALS at our HealthSouth
clinic.
MDA also provides finan-
cial assistance for purchase
and repair of assistive equip-


ment like wheelchairs, and
for communication devices
for those whose speech is
diminished by the disease.
Support groups are another
vital MDA service for people
with ALS and their loved
ones.
We hope that all of those
who were touched by Woods'
performance will support
MDA's efforts to eradicate this
devastating disease. Learn

calling 951-7890.

School tax benefits all
Editor:
I think the city of Venice
can make a start on improv-.
ing its services to the commu-
nity by encouraging the resi-
dents of the city to vote for the
school tax.
Who is going to be around
to service any of the needs of
this wealthy population if
they don't show their support
of our schools?

Bush missing big picture
Editor:
President Bush feels that
spying on U.S. citizens is OK
as a tool to contain terrorism.
While no one likes the idea of
the government infringing on
our privacy, such actions can
be understood and possibly
accepted as the lesser of two
evils.
What is difficult to under-
stand or accept is the presi-
dent's very liberal attitude
concerning the influx of


potential terrorists coming
across our borders. He just
doesn't seem to get the big
picture, and his failure to take
action over the last five, years
has helped to put our country
in danger of terrorist attack.

Take heart in
times of troubles
Editor:
Troubles come; things go
wrong. The nights are long,
and all the burdens we bear.
We just keep adding to our
worries we must strength-
en our faith and redeem us.
Bless us.
I don't know how to say it,
but we all are stationed where
God wants us to be.
I came to the conclusion
the post God set us in is the
post he wanted filled.
Don't give up, because
there is someone, and many
are living your losses. God will
walk with you in this pathway
to the end. My sympathy to
one and all.

Bragg was more

I read "Bragg an example

feel that ,the article is a mis-
representation of Rick Bragg.
I am a Venice High School
student and I was present
when Bragg spoke to the
school. You will not under-
stand the true meaning of
what he had to say if you have
not read any of his books.

Near a farm, expect to smell manure


Common sense. I'm reading the article about airport neigh-
bors sound off on noise. When you buy a home near an airport,
which is a handy, modem, upcoming thing, you have to expect
some noise from the planes. We lived in the country, and when
the farmers would clean out their barn in the spring, the peo-
ple that moved out to the country would complain when the
beautiful animal odor floated in their area. I mean, it's just
common sense when you buy a house near an airport, you're
gonna hear airplanes; if you buy a house near a river that
floods, you might get a flood. It just seems like if they don't like
it, they should move.


Clean up. I have a com-
ment to make regarding code
enforcement and strength-
ening their power and au-
thority in South Venice. I have
to say all my neighbors are in
full agreement. We have sev-
eral houses for sale that are
just not selling. We have some
trash living across the street
and I don't blame any poten-
,tial buyer for not wanting to
live across the street from
something that's an eyesore
and degrading to the neigh-
borhood. It's actually drag-
ging property down. It's not
just an opinion. Houses are
worth $300,000 now; they're
not $40,000 cottages any-
more. We have to bring these
codes up into the new millen-
nium here. I would imagine
the county would want prop-
erty values to keep going up
too, especially because of the
tax base. If it were ever put to
a vote, I'm sure about 90 per-
cent of the people would
want an increase in authority
in code enforcement. It's just
pure laziness that people
have weeds and mold all over
their houses, and motorcycles
and trucks parked all over the
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.
Enforcement needed. The
idea that higher speeds save
lives is ridiculous. If limits are
based on 85 percent of drivers'
speeds, some will exceed the
limitthinking, even if I g0a
tickets now, if this causes the
limit to rise in the future, espe-
cially on a road that I travel
now, it will be worth it. And,
faster speed usually causes
more fatalities in accidents.
Also, people on cell phones
couldbecome more dangerous
at higher speeds. Other things
are on cell phones now, taking
attention away from driving.
Even police'are talking, some-
times holding equipment, as
they speed to catch someone.
Carmakers make more inside
gadgets each year that distract
drivers. All it takes is a second of
eyes or minds not focused to
cause an accident. What is
needed is more arrests, tighter
restrictions, higher fines, more
officers on roads, and equip-
ment that does not leave DUI
arrests in question-- nothigh-
er speed limits.
A wonderful life. I just
thought of how interesting it
is that we live in a country
where we're willing to go out
):,and tell the rest of the world
how to live, and try to prevent
'their terrorism, etc. We try
'telling how wonderful our
r' way of life is. And we go to our
homes at night, pull the car in
i the garage, lock the car, then
lock the garage door, go in the
house, lock the door, then
deadbolt it, watch porch
lights, set the security alarm
system, go to bed, make sure
Swe know where the loaded
gun isfor our self defense, say
goodnight to our family and
our security bill. Now, .how
can we be trying to tell other
people in other areas of the
world how to live? Interesting,
isn't it?
No pride. That business on
41 near the south bridge that
has a red building n'd fence
with the black and white
pavement is an atrocity and
I an embarrassment to Venice.
How can a city that has pride
in its appearance and con-
trols in place to maintain a
historic look allow this kind of
thing to happen? And if the
Business needs to attract cus-
I tomers with this kind of color
Scheme, perhaps it should
Realize that a good product
and good service are what
* customers really want. An-
other comment, thanks for
Making the boxes bigger in


the crossword.
Get a life. When we bring
back these paper ballots, why
don't we do it with a horse and -
wagon? And at the same time,
we can convert our draw-
bridges back to hand-crank
operations. Maybe ,our bank-
ers ought to throw out all the
computers and go back to pa-
per journals. Come on folks,
get a life. Computers are safe.
It's the way of the future.


Chances are. It seems like
this whole same-sex marriage
thing is opening back up,
especially with Elton John
and his partner getting back
together. I think it's great. I
think two people who love
.each other should be able to
get together. If you're a man
who doesn't want to marry a
man, then don't marry a man.
Same thing if you're a woman
who doesn't have any interest
in marrying a woman. The
ones who want to, don't worry
about them. Parents, remem-
ber that you have in a one in
10 chance of having a gay
child. And grandparents, you
have a one in seven chance.
So; keep that in mind. Those
people who you hate and are
attacking could very well be
one of your children or grand-
children.

kids realize that even if they
have had a rough childhood,
there is still something out
there for them to do with their
life.
Even if some may feel that
this man is unkempt and not
a very good role model, this is
the year 2006, and I along
with many other students
really had a connection with
what Bragg had to say.
I really like how he came as
himself and did not wear a


fake personality. This shows
he is not snobbish in any way
and even though he has
wealth, he is not consumed
by it. High school students
respected this and they were
more eager to listen because
he was not wearing a mask.
Mr. Bragg helped by telling
us how to become writers and
that even though he had only
taken, one college class and
succeeded, we should try to
go as far as we can. He told us
he regrets not taking more
classes.


But he also stated a diplo-
ma is just a scrap of paper. By
this he means it doesn't get
you everywhere in life. I hope
all students listen to the
words and advice that he
shared.
I would like thank the
school board of Sarasota
County for having Literacy
Week, especially for inviting
such a down-to-earth, great.

servation. The foundation is
working with energy and
related consultants to meet
Florida standards for a
"green" community, and sees
itself as a "steward" of the
environment.
A third dimension deals
with social factors such as
mixed incomes, and ages
from college students to se-
niors. People could live in the
area for a shorter or longer
time, throughout their lives if
they choose, and they could
also move-to a different form
of housing, following the pat-
tern of some seniors in mov-
ing to smaller, maintenance-
free dwellings.
Finally, the foundation
sees economic sustainability
as important- a viable econ-
omy in the nearby communi-
ty, retail stores, offices and


possibly places to live and
work. Day care, parks, trails,
recreation and cultural
spaces all are part of mak-
ing the community sustain-
able.
The foundation earlier had
discussions with people from
the community who work
nearby city and county
workers, teachers, people
employed by nearby indus-
tries and a variety of persons
who might be considered
future residents and asked
them what they wanted.
Interestingly and this
should be a major item in
planning by the city and
developers they were not
primarily interested in space
and characteristics of hous-
ing. Instead, they were inter-"
ested in life in the community
- what activities might be


offered: live music, entertain-
ment, restaurants, recreation.
They loved the idea of a pool,
and exercise facilities. They
saw the community as its
people and their activities.
In short, they .reflected
what John Nolen had in mind
when he designed Venice and
the ideas that -current resi-
dents emphasized in the
Envision Venice meetings.
The challenge is there for
the mayor and council, for
the 'planning commission
and for City Manager Black
and his staff.
How will Venice be proac-
tive in shaping the future of
its "north" side?

Anti-fraud Web site created


STAFF REPORT


Attorney General Charlie
Crist and former Attorney
General Bob Butterworth,
joined by University Presi-
dents T.K. Wetherell of Florida
State University and Mon-
signor Franklin Casale of St.
Thomas University, have an-
nounced a new online na-
tional clearinghouse and
research center to help in the
fight against fraud and other
economic crimes.
The Center for the Study of
Economic Crimes, jointly
operated by FSU's College of
Criminology and Criminal
Justice and the St. Thomas
University School of Law, will
help identify emerging trends
in fraudulent activity; pro-
mote enforcement strategies;
and conduct academic re-
search into the origins, pat-
terns, effects and control of
fraud.
The center will focus on
fraud and other economic
crimes affecting consumers,
business and government,
with an emphasis on crimes
that cross jurisdictional
boundaries.
The center's initiatives in-
clude establishment of a new
Web site to help authorities
fight fraud.
"Scam artists use the latest
in technology to take advan-
tage of unsuspecting vic-
tims," said Crist.
"This Web site provides
investigators with a high-tech
tool to fight back and regain


the upper hand on behalf of
the citizens of our state."
"Fraud artists routinely
move from one state to
another and jump from one
type of fraud to another," said
Butterworth, dean of the St.
Thomas University School of
Law. "The center will provide
information-sharing tools
and a body of information to
help monitor their patterns
across geographic and level-
of-government jurisdictional
lines."
"Florida State University's
College of Criminology and
Criminal Justice is proud to
be involved in this vital pro-
ject," said Wetherell.
"With a long history as one
of the most prominent crimi-
nology programs in the coun-
try, this college is well suited
to gather and analyze data
that will lead to the develop-
ment of public policy aimed
at eliminating the critical
social problem of consumer
fraud. This is truly research
brought to life."
Three initiatives
The center's primary strat-
egy includes three major ini-
tiatives:
The launching of Fraud
Update.com, a Web-based
tracking resource to highlight
major cases and enforcement
operations nationally and
throughout the English-
speaking World. The Web site
also includes the latest alerts
to help consumers and busi-
nesses avoid being victimized


by scams.
Periodic national confer-
ences for investigators, prose-
cuting attorneys, corporate
leaders, researchers and oth-
ers to hear from experts about
emerging patterns of fraudu-
lent activity and to explore
strategies for fighting it.
Academic research into
the phenomenon of fraud
and related crimes, pattern
detection, victimization and
public policy issues.
The Attorney General's
Office provided the initial
funding for the center
through a 2004 settlement
with Sprint Communications
that directed $250,000 to FSU.
Additional funding was
provided by the St. Thomas
University Law School.
The center's Internet-
based information-sharing
resource identifies newly
published. news releases,
alerts, settlements and relat-
ed documents on more than
300 government Web sites in
near-real time.
The system arranges these
documents by topic, region


and state, intermixing state,
federal and international
reports into a variety of chan-
nels. Full-text'searching is
available.
At any given time, the
repository contains more
than 10,000 documents cov-
ering the most recent 18
months of enforcement activ-
ity.
The center's first confer-
ence Economic Crime in
the 21st Center: Emerging
Trends in Consumer Fraud
and Strategies for Enforce-
ment will feature speakers
with noteworthy experience
and expertise in the field. It is
scheduled for March 17-18 at
St. Thomas University in
Miami.
The center already has
sponsored original re-
search by FSU's College of
Criminology and Criminal
Justice, including a study
entitled, "Sociolegal
change in consumer fraud:
From victim-offender in-
teractions to global net-
works," which is available
on the Web site.

VLL, county work together on improvements


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Hopefully, the finger point-
ing and playing of the "blame
game" are over.
In fact, one can almost
sense a feeling of perestroika
when addressing the Venice
Little League's dealings with
Sarasota County involving
the upkeep of the facilities at
Chuck Reiter and Wellfield.
Improvements are under
way and following a meeting
between VLL board member
Jim Hanks and county parks
and recreation official Ed
Exner, optimism abounds.
"We are working together
to get things ironed out,"
Hanks said. "I came away
with a positive feeling. We're
willing to work with them
and they're willing to work
with us. I'm upbeat."
For those of you unfamiliar
with the term, The History
Guide defines perestroika as
overcoming the stagnation
process, breaking down the
braking mechanism, creating
a dependable and effective
mechanism for acceleration
of progress and giving it
greater dynamism.
Sounds like it fits.
Resetting the battleground:
Going back a month,
Venice Little League and the
county parks and recreation
department were at odds
over the ill state of the four
fields at Chuck Reiter and the


three fields atWellfield.
Infields on some of the
diamonds were in sad shape.
Grass had died. Fencing and
backstops were jagged. Dug-
outs were ragged.
Little League officials said
they were getting no coopera-
tion from the county.. The
county defended itself, saying
improvements were either in
progress or in the planning
stages.
Then came the old argu-
ment about the electricity
bills at the parks.
The county fired a salvo
claiming Venice Little League
only had paid $200 towards a
balance of several thousand
dollars.
The Little League came
back and said it had paid
thousands towards renova-
tions the county should have
made.
Then league officials dug
up an old court document
dated 1992. It was an agree-
ment that states the county
is responsible for paying for
the operation and mainte-
nance of the fields up to 2009.
Relations made a turn for
the better when Hanks and
Exner met last week at
Wellfield.
"We had to bring to the
county's attention that our
facilities are older,". Hanks
said. "We're not .as new as a
Twin Lakes. We need more
attention because our infra-
structure is older."

Jerry Tesar of the county parks and recreation department points out some of the improve-
ments at the Chuck Reiter Complex.


Progress was also made
on the light bill squabble.
"We've spent $40,000 on
improvements over the past
six years," Hanks said. "We
want to make sure we get
credit towards that."
On the bright side, a lot of


YMCA Under 8 United team


excels in 3V3 soccer worlds


STAFF REPORT

The Venice area is catching
up to the rest of the state in
soccer, thanks to the work of
the Venice Area Youth Soccer
Association and the YMCA
leagues.
The Venice YMCA is doing
its share of introducing kids
to the sport.
One Venice YMCA 3V3
team is finding success at
tournaments around the
state.
3V3 soccer involves three
players aside. There is no
goalkeeper. '


The pitch is much smaller
than 11 on 11.
The Venice YMCA United
won a bronze medal in the
Under 8 bracket at the 2006
Kick-It 3V3 World Champion-
ships played Jan. 14-16 at the
Disney Wide World of Sports
Complex.
The United played nine
matches, winning eight and
losing one. The locals tallied
56 goals over the nine match-
es.
There are six players on
the United squad 8-year-
olds Alex Kotti, Jacob Szu-
hany, Daniel Swanson and


Haley Joyner and 7-year-olds
Gabriel Gordon and Brent
Killam.
The team is coached by
Dave Shacklett and Scott
Killam.
To get to the World Cham-
pionships, the United team
had to excel in qualifiers in
Lakeland and Orlando. The
team went undefeated in
each.
"We're not all all-star
team," Shacklett said. "The
kids were just selected ran-
domly to see how we would
do in the tournament at
Wellfield."
The team has been to-
gether for two years now.
"They have jelled,"
Shacklett said. "They're very
mature for their ages. After
playing a match, they all
want popsicles."
Shacklett said family sup-
port is also a big part of the
team's success.
"There are. six different
families and they all have
been a big help," he said.
"We practice four days a
week about three weeks
before a tournament. The
kids are always here.
The next 3V3 tournament
for the United is the Shark's
Tooth played in Venice in
April.

Athlete of the Week


Every successful wrestling team needs a big weight at the bottom. In
Venice's case, we're talking about senior heavyweight Anthony Saputo.
He was in top form Saturday in the district tournament Saturday,
pinning two opponents and scoring a technical fall in his other bout. He
is now 40-5 and looking towards the state tournament.

Buyers of scrub jay lots will wait to build
-I


Having bought the lots without knowing the

protected birds were on them, some new North

Port property owners are going to see if they

interfere with their plans.


BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR

Had they known scrub jays
were found on the lots they
wanted to buy, two successful
bidders in the North Port lot
auction wouldn't have bought
those particular lots.
So said both Kelly and Ed
Boiler, and Josh Morgan of
North Port Capital, who were
the recent winning bidders
on four lots on which scrub
jays reportedly have been
spotted.
"We bought our lot with
plans eventually to build a
home there and move to
North Port," said Kelly Boller,
who lives in upstate New
York. "We looked around
North Port, and when we
heard about the lot auctiori,
we thought this was a good
chance to get a lot we could
build on later."
Boiler said she and her
husband, Ed, have no plans to
build here for five years. The
couple has a teenage son and
they will wait until he gradu-
ates.
The lot they bought was
one of several that Sarasota
County learned has scrub
jays. The county got the infor-
mation only a day before
Session 1 of the lot auction
closed.

The auction goes on
Sarasota County received
the information about the
protected birds via telephone
from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife
Service, which has been
doing scrub jay surveys.
There is no written report yet.
When county personnel
learned scrub jays were found
on four lots that already had
bids on them in Session 1,
they conferred with Fisher
Auction Co. and decided to let
the bidding proceed on those
four lots.
The bid was allowed to
continue, partly because no
one knew what might happen
with the computer records if
they removed four lots.


When the Session 1 bid-
ding first opened, several lots
were assigned the wrong
starting bid figures because of
a computer error. The parties
were therefore sensitive to the
possibility of computer
glitches.
The Boilers were not in-
formed about the scrub jays
until one day after the bid-
ding closed. Kelly Boller
recalled receiving a phone
call from Fisher Auction Co.
informing her they had won,
but that scrub jays were pre-
sent on the lot.
The Bollers were given'the
option of either rejecting the
lot without penalty, or waiting
to see what develops. They
chose to wait.
"If we had known before"
the auction closed that our lot
had scrub jays," Kelly said,
"we would not hate contin-
ued with the auction. But'
since we did not find out until
afterward, we decided to wait
and see."
Kelly also said she heard
scrub jays do not necessarily
stay in the same area for a
long time, so maybe by the
time they are ready to build,
the birds will have left their
property.
"Right now we have no
intention to disturb the
birds," Kelly said.

'Not that critical"
Josh Morgan's situation is a
bit different. He bought a
couple hundred lots in the
first auction session, includ-
ing three that were found to
have scrub jays.
"We got these lots for
investment," said Morgan.
"We like North Port a lot.
We've bought other lots in
this area over the past year
and we think it's a really good
investment."
Morgan said property in
North Port is more affordable
than he finds up north by
Tampa or down south by
Naples. He was pleased with
the prices for the lots he won
in the auction.


"If I had known before the
close of the auction about
those three lots with scrub
jays, I might have backed out
of them then. But as a long-
term investment, it's not that
critical to me," Morgan said.
He was told his closings
will not have to take place
until after a final report on
scrub jays is issued, so he may
have a few months before
making a final decision.

Red and yellow
Morgan said some people
are being intimidated by the
scrub jay issue because they
do 'not understand the pro-
cess.
"Some people are not buy-
ing the 'yellow' lots, and the
'red' lots have been pulled out
of the auction for now," he
said.
The red and yellow lots are
those identified on a map by
Sarasota County as having
good scrub jay habitat, or
being close to lots that do.
Red or yellow properties do
not necessarily house actual
birds, though.
Morgan thought that "red"
and "yellow" designations are
irrelevant. He said some of
the lots he bought were yel-
low, and because of that he
felt he got a better price.
In addition to the lots that
Morgan and the Bollers won
.. in the auction, six lots slated
to be auctioned in Session 3
were reported to have scrub
jays and were removed.
About 200 lots identified as
"red" by the county map were
removed before the online
auctions started.
The second session of the
North Port lot auction closed
Monday. More than 550 lots.
including 77 that did not sell
in the first round, were up for
bids.
Session 3 of the lot auction
will run Feb. 10-20, and will
contain 489 lots plus any that
did not sell in Sessions 1 and
2.
A live auction to sell any
remaining lots is slated for 7
pm., Tuesday, Feb. 28 at the
North Port Performing Arts
Center.

Hoffman at: shoffman

It's Greek for everyone


STORY BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

C celebrating

their Greek

Orthodox

heritage,

members of the
St. Barbara Greek

Orthodox Church.

in Sarasota

hold their 22nd

annual festival

on the church

grounds in

Sarasota, Feb. 9-

12.

More than 16,000 festival-
goers attended last year's cel-
ebration, consuming more
than 2,500 lamb shanks,
nearly, that many chickens,
mounds of Greek. salad and
platters of such Greek pas-
tries as baklava, finikia and
loukoumathes, plus sand-
wiches like gyros and more.
No one will starve at a Glendi
Festival. Cooks have been
working for weeks to get
ready for this year's extrava-
ganza.
To create all the food,
cooks have been working for
weeks, using, in addition to
all that lamb and chicken,
1,200 pounds of pork tender-
loin, nearly 1,100 pounds of
gyro meat, 88 pans of'pastis-
tio, 88 pans of moussaka, 43
cases of lettuce, 1,000 pounds
of red potatoes, 500 pounds
of Idaho potatoes, more than
1,000 pounds of onions, 55
cases of tomatoes, 60 cases of
tiropita, 110 cases of spaniko-
pita, 2,100 pieces of pita
bread, 504 pounds of feta
cheese, 18,000 dolmathes
(grape leaves stuffed with
rice) plus 1,500 pieces of sou -
vlaki pork and chicken.
The food will be served ala
carte and also as dinners or
platters. A shish kabob dinner
includes the skewer of mea t,
green pepper and onions
served on a bed of rice with a
Greek salad and a roll for $10.
Greek salads are $2 and $4,
depending on the portion
size. Gyro sandwiches are $5
each. Pastries will vary in
price and can be purchased
by the piece or in a box to take
home for the whole family.
Entertainment
Anyone who eats a good
portion of all that food better
work it off with Greek danc-
ing. Several traditional Greek
dances will be demonstrated
at the festival. The school-age
dancers range from elemen-
tary school age to high school
and will perform several

will be able to stroll through
various booths where you can
purchase everything from
Greek worry beads to sailor
hats, Greek jewelry, vases and
more. With all that .food,
worry beads could come in
handy as you worry about
how to not gain weight while
eating so much.
In the Greek country store,
the Bakaliko, there will be
packaged foods, Greek herbs,
olives, olive oil and preserves
for use in making Greek food
at home.-
A "taverna" will offer Greek,
wines by the glass or bottled
plus draft beer and soft
drinks. Included in the list of
Greek wines offered at the
festival will be Restina,


Please see COOL, 12B


Roditis, Rouge Red, Blanc
White and Mavrodaphane.
Fine coffee
As traditional as the taver-
na is the "Kafenion," .a Greek
coffee house. There is one in
every Greek village, no matter
how small, even in the most
remote areas. There will be
one at the Glendi Festival too.
More than a place to sip
coffee, the Kafenion is where
the townsfolk gather for lively
discussions about politics
and social issues as well as
light banter. Sometimes cards
or backgammon are played.
Loukouomathes (Greek
honey puff pastries) are one
of the favorite treats to go
with one's coffee.
Greek coffee is extra
strong, more like espresso. It
is served in a small cup. When
ordering it is usual to specify
how much sugar should be
used in the making of the cof-
fee.
"Sketo" means no sugar.
"Metrio" means 1 tea-
spoon.
"Gylko" means 2 tea-
spoons sugar.
Greek friends of mine
warn that you should not
make the tourist mistake of
drinking the sludge at the
bottom. That is used for for-
tune telling. For the timid,
American coffee also will be


available but you will have to
find another kind of fortune
teller.
Bargain hunters


tion on a flea market: or
garage sale but with a unique
Greek twist.
WhLile the adults go shop-
ping or visit the tavema, there
will be plenty to do for the
children in the family. Friday,
SSaturday and -Sunday,
younger visitors can have
their faces painted, partici-
pate in special games for chil-
dren and even learn Greek
dancing.
For children of all ages
there will be plenty of cotton
candy, hot dogs and pop
corn.
As if anyone needed an
ex-ua incentive to eat Greek
food or to go shopping, this
year's annual Greek Glendi
Festival has a special theme
Hellenic Culture and the
Age of Byzantium.
For 11 centuries the
Byzantiun formed a bridge
between the philosophy and
literature of ancient Greece
and the teachings of
Christianity. The Byzantine
mosaics in the church are a
reflection of the time and can
be seen by festival visitors
during guided tours of the
church, which last 15-30

IVMS students become entrepreneurs for a


BY ELAINE M. PALMORE
CORRESPONDENT

The third- and fourth-
grade students in classroom
14 at Island Village Mont-
essori School have become
entrepreneurs for the last
month.
This is an exercise that fol-
lows a formal Montessori pre-
sentation of economic geog-
raphy, in which the students
begin by tracing the contents
of their lunchbox. Using a
series of cards and arrows,
they can track where their
food comes from before it is
bought from the supermar-
ket.
This exercise includes a
card with a miller, a butcher, a
truck driver, a shopkeeper
and many others who con-
tribute to a simple lunch of a
peanut butter and jelly sand-
wich and milk.
We asked the questions:
Where did the peanuts come
from, who made the bread
and how did the milk get from
the cow to the carton?
Next, we moved to the
more interactive exercise of
creating our own businesses
in a month-long role play.
The students divided


themselves into groups of
four or five students. Each
group was given $250,000 of
play money to start the com-
pany of their choice.
They were all required to
write their own resumes,
which focused on their edu-
cational background, inter-
ests, talents, skills and prior
work experience. As you
might imagine, the work ex-
perience was lean and refer-
ences could not include par-
ents or family members.
By the end of the month
our community had grown to
include a pet shop, two law-
yers, a video arcade, an Italian
restaurant and a bank.
Each group created their
own logo, slogan and adver-
tising plan; filled in ledger.
sheets with debits in red and
credits in blue; and wrote a
five-year business plan.
On the final day of this
experiment, when we were to
go public and present our
projects to several of our
other classrooms, pre-
dictably, the restaurant group
was in total chaos.
The waiters were holding
out for more money, the
managers couldn't get
bussers and the chefs both


quit. But also in just as typical
a style for creative people
who need to get a job done,
they came together at the last
possible moment.
This Italian restaurant,
Andrew's, whose slogan is
"You Are Really In Italy," pro-
duced a seating chart for
inside and outside dining, a
tile floor figured by square
footage, a two-page menu
divided into appetizers, sal-
ads, pastas, desserts and
many other scrumptious
things that made us all want
to eat at their restaurant..
Other slogans included:
"Let Us Help You With Your
Finances," "You Cannot Have
Too Many Pets," and "Play A
Game."
All of this came together
with only two lawsuits. An
employee was fired from his
job for no reason and wanted
to sue his employer, and
Andrew was someone's mid-
dle name who wanted to be
paid for its use,
One of our "lawyer moms"
came in and spoke about the
actual high cost of lawsuits to
the community, so they opted
for mediation instead. Several
dads volunteered to come in
to speak to the students

6B VENICE GOUNDOLIERS ~UN'


A change is in the air


DAVE BARRY
4M COLUMNIST


This classic Dave Barry column
was originally published May 7,
2000.
When people ask me,
"Dave, what's it like to have a
newborn baby in the house-
hold?" I immediately answer:
This is because I am
sleeping. I spend a lot of my
day in an unconscious
state, because my 2-month-
old daughter, Sophie, does
not believe in sleeping at
night. She feels that the
nighttime hours are best
used for making loud, inex-
plicable, Exorcist-style noises.
At 3:30 a.m., her bassinet
will suddenly start shaking
like an unbalanced clothes
dryer and erupt with a wide
range of squeaks, gurgles,
chirps, snorts, snuffles,
grunts, etc. It does not sound
like there's a lone baby in
there. It sounds like the en-
tire Barnyard of the Demons.
(Which would be an excel-
lent name for a band.)


Sophie routinely makes
noises that cannot be ex-
plained by the known laws
of physics. Recently, some
friends came over to admire
her, and we had her all
dressed up in a cute little
baby outfit featuring little
bloomers with cherries on
them, and while everybody
was gathered around admir-
ing how sweet and delicate
and innocent she looked,
Sophie who is, physically,
no larger than a standard
pumpkin cut loose with
a series of massive, resonat-
ing, bloomer-inflating bodily
blasts that you would think
could be produced only by a
350-pound man who had
just won a burrito-eating
contest. If I had not been
holding her firmly at the
time, I believe she would
have propelled herself, mis-
sile-style, through the ceiling.
"How .. cute!" our friends
said, as the aroma wafted
around us, fog-like. "
I'm not saying that all
Sophie does is make noises.
As a brand-new human
being. with an inquisitive
mind, she is also exploring
the mystery and magic of
the world around her, by
which I mean she is trying
to get her hands completely
into her mouth. This is her
primary goal in life.
Her arms and legs con-
stantly wave around in-a ran-
dom manner, and every now
and then, when a hand hap-
pens to land on her mouth,


she becomes excited and
starts sucking on it like crazy.
But then, without warning,
the arm yanks the hand
away, which makes Sophie
'VERY angry. If she ever finds
out who is operating her
arms, she is going to give that
person a piece of her mind, if
she ever figures out how to
talk.
Yes, it's an exciting time in
our household, a time of
learning and growing and
having plastic bags of frozen
breast milk in the freezer
next to the Tater Tots. In
our family, we strongly
believe in breast-feeding,
which has many benefits, the
main one being: Men can-
not do it. Not that I donft
contribute! I'm always giving
my wife useful breast-feeding
pointers, such as: "Time for
you to breast-feed her!" And:
"Time for you to breast-feed
her again!" And: "I would
gladly breast-feed her, but,
tragically, I am a man."
(Actually, I suspect that
men CAN breast-feed; it's
just that, in the entire history
of the human race, no man
has ever actually tried.)
I do change diapers. A LOT.
It is a known baby fact that
babies put out far more mate-
rial than they take in; physi-
cists now believe that babies
account for most of the mat-
ter in the ,universe. If you
were to stack up all the dia-
pers I have changed in just
two months, one on top of
the other, you would never


be invited to a party again
for the rest of your life.
Our house would smell like
a malfunctioning sewage
plant, except that we have a
product called the Diaper
Genie, which encloses dia-
pers in a long, odor-proof
plastic bag. As a parent, I
believe this is the greatest of
all humanity's inventions,
including low-fat Cheez-Its.
You take your diaper, 'you put
it into your Diaper Genie,
you twist the plastic bag,
and, as the French say,
Voila! (Literally, "You are not
smelling any more 'the

poop.")
When your Diaper Genie
fills up, you open the bottom
and remove an amazing, 15-
foot-long, segmented, cater-
pillar-like Chain of Doodies.
We've been throwing these
away, but it seems to me
we ought to be turning them
over to the U.S. Air Force as
a potentially devastating
military weapon.
Another excellent item of
modern baby technology is
the battery-powered swing.
When your baby is in a bad
mood because she cannot
get her hand inside her
mouth, you put her in this
swing and let it rock her
gently into a blissful state of
suspended baby animation
lasting long enough that'
sometimes you can actually
take a shower. This device
works so well that I think
we should make a larger
version and use it to calm

Following the 2006 running trends


J.J. Andrews
BACK OF THE PACK

Running through the mud
. was one of my favorite activi-
ties as a high school cross
country runner in Ohio.,
And every time I did it, I felt
like I was breaking the rules,
from the heavy sigh of my
mother looking at the dirty
clothes basket to the farmer
chasing us out of his pasture
because we were spooking
the cattle.
I cannot remember the last
time I blasted through a mud
puddle. The busy adult life
hardly leaves enough time to
run, let alone seek out trails
and pastures full of mud, so
it's a weekly dosage of asphalt


roads for me.
Boy, I miss those country
dirt roads, wood trails and
fields.
And as it turns out, my
body may miss those sur-
faces, also. A story by Bob
Cooper of Runner's World
magazine inside the February
edition talks about the trends
of 2006.
Among the top trends are
skipping roads in favor of
trails. Cooper writes:
"Now, trails have replaced
blacktop as the training
ground of choice. Why?
Because running off-road
protects you from impact
injuries. 'The harder the run-
ning surface, the higher your
risk for injury due to the
increased shock to the body,'
says podiatrist PatrickNunan,
past president of the
American Academy of
Podiatric Sports Medicine."
Personal experience tends
to support Cooper's article.
The concrete of sidewalks
and bike paths, I have found,
cause the most joint pain
after a run, which is why so
many runners stay on the
asphalt of roads.


Perhaps I should try a little
harder to run on dirt trails,
like the ones at Pinebrook
Park or Oscar Scherer.
The island's Venetian
Waterway Park bike path has
fairly level grass lining both
sides of its concrete, so per-
haps I should start running
on it, instead.
Before the running
naysayers start chiming up, I
still firmly believe running is
better for your knees and
joints than not running. It
appears as if some medical
research backs that up, also.
But you'll have to read next
week's column to find out
about that.
Until then, here are some
more of Cooper's trends for
runners in 2006:
Running every other day
- This is something I've
already started doing, and
have to say it's worked out
great for me, especially dur-
ing those high-mileage weeks
leading up to a marathon.
My plan packs in all my
miles across four days, and I
take the other three days off
each week. Cooper writes,'
"Alternate-day running


makes perfect physiological
sense because it's a pure
application of the hard/easy
principle: You run one day,
rest the next. Your body
responds well because it's
fully recovered by the time
the next workout rolls
around."
Heart-rate workouts.-
My fellow running friends
have been saying I've got to
get on this trend. I am too
cheap to buy the equipment,
however, so I'll stick to timing
my running pace to deter-
mine how well I've done.
Cooper writes, "Running with.
a heart-rate monitor address-
es ... how much effort you're
putting into a workout and
not just at the end of each lap
or mile, but cumulatively and
at any point in the run."

umn online at runner-
sworld.com.

ly running column appear-
ing every Wednesday. Send

Hey, sweetie, it's sugar time down


BY STEPHEN BAUMANN
ENGLEWOOD EDITOR

In a couple of weeks, when
the night air freezes and the
days heat up into the 40s,
Shep and Judy Thomas will
head back to Baltimore to
boil.
That's Baltimore, Vt.,
where sugar maple trees on a
single hillside far outnumber
the inhabitants.
And boiling is what they do
with the sap that trickles from
the maples when the warmer
spring sunshine begins to
thaw the rocky soil of the
Green Mountains.
The Thomases are sugar-
makers, and every fall they
skip Vermont's long, harsh
winter and head to their sec-
ond home in North Port for a
long vacation. It's also prime
time to sell the previous year's
maple crop.
The couple brings along
plastic jugs and glass bottles
of maple syrup to peddle at
the Friday afternoon farmers
market off West Dearborn
Street in Englewood and the
Saturday morning market in
downtown Venice.
At the market
Last Saturday, Shep and
Judy stood by their card table
as shoppers stopped by to
browse, gab or grab a small
bottle ofVermont pure, Grade
A Amber.
.Shep, 65, the front man,
presses couple-ounce con-
tainers into the hands of chil-
dren and passes to their par-
ents slightly old-fashioned,
glossy state of Vermont bro-
chures, "The Story of Maple
Time in Vermont" (Bulletin
No. 38,'1972).
"It's ours, so he gives it
away," says Judy, 64.
: There aren't a ton of actual
sales this day. Still, the
ThInases8-seen to be-culi-
nary and cultural ambas-
sadors of a sort.
And the brochure carries
their phone number, fax and
e-mail address. Shep is
always swift to point out: "We
ship anywhere in the world."'
"The farthest my dad ever


shipped was New Guinea," he
notes later, speaking with a
slight Green Mountain ac-
cent. (It sounds a little like
"hoy" when he says "hi.")
All the while, other dis-
placed Vermonters stop by to
register greetings.
"We drove across the
mountain at Killington in a
blizzard last weekend," one
woman says.
"I had a house in New-
fane," says another. "It's nice
to see your license plate."
Shep and Judy nod politely.
Small business
With agribusiness growing
bigger, more mechanized and
more corporate every year,
the Thomases' Baltimore
farm is a woolen, red-and-
black plaid antique. It is very
small-scale and very family.
The work force is Shep,
Judy, Shep's brother, Shep's
niece and her husband and
two boys, ages 8 and 11. Even
the kids pull their load.
"Oh yeah, they're right out
there," Judy says.
There isn't a lot of financial
reward.
"It's all unpaid, of course,"
Judy says.
"It's a family affair, always
has been."
The business began in the
late 1800s in a place that's
about as far from the beaten
track as you can get in 2006.
Baltimore itself is tiny, even
by Vermont standards, sand-
wiched in the hills between
the larger towns of Chester
(population 3,044), Caven-
dish (1,470), Springfield
(9,078) and Weathersfield
(2,839).
According to one Web site,
there are 260 residents, up
from 250 in the 2000 census.
"Somebody's been breed-
ing," Shep says when told of
the newest statistics.
"No, they moved in," Judy
says.
She should know. For 15
years, Judy was the town
clerk, a position at the hub of
all local government activi-
ties. Shep was a longtime
member of the board of
selectmen, the three-person

also set up at the Englewood Farmers Market off West Dearborn Street.


board that runs the town; his
nephew is now the chairman.
Shep's niece is one-third of
the town school board.
Not that there is a ton of
work for the school board
now. Baltimore's only school
closed in 1989, and the chil-
dren are bused to schools in
neighboring towns.
The old schoolhouse -,
the only public building in'
town became the town
offices. There is no store, no
church, no post office.
"All they did is give me the
teacher's desk; the classroom


is the selectmen's room," said
the former town clerk.
There are 7.9 miles of road-
way, all gravel.
"There's a paved road that
runs to town, but the end of
the road is Baltimore," Judy
says.
"When you get down to
knowing what a small town is,
you get to understand what a
small farm is," Judy says.
Generations
The family has been sugar-
ing for 115 years, Shep esti-
mates. The original sugar-


house a barn with a steam
escape-hatch at the peak -
was built by his grandfather,
and rebuilt two years ago.
It's the type of rural ritual
that can get into your veins.
"I've been at this since I
was 2 years old," Shep says.
"My dad used to take me up
on the hand sled, and I'd play
while they were tapping."
The sugarmaking process
begins with someone drilling
small holes in sugar maple
trees. (Novices have been
known to tap red maples,
which just doesn't work.) The


larger the tree, the more taps
it can take.
Metal or plastic spouts,
known as taps, are then ham-
mered into the holes. A buck-
et is hung on the spout, or
more commonly these days,
long plastic tubing is con-
nected spout to spout.
On certain spring days
when the weather is right, the
sap pulses in the tree and
oozes out the spout. Ideal
conditions occur when 'the
night temperatures dip well

Traditionally, the firebox
was stuffed with wood from
the hillsides and fields. These
days, oil is the more common
fuel.
"We switched to oil in
1962, when we put the first
.pipeline up," Shep says. "The
big reason we switched is
labor; labor is so darned
expensive."
All the family's work yields
between 400 and 600 gallons
per season, depending on the
weather, Judy says.
Early run
The whole thing begins
every year in the spring and
ends when the buds appear
on the maple trees. That's
when the syrup turns
"buddy."
This year, the season
kicked off early during a
January thaw. Last Saturday, a
man came up with a front
page of the Jan. 16 Eagle
Times of Claremont, N.H.,
which had a story and photos
of a Connecticut River valley
sugarmaker boiling an early
run.
The Thomases have seen it
before.
"One year, before my dad
passed away, I said to him I
was going to tap, and we did,"
Shep says. "It was the third
week of January. We made
half a crop in January that
year.")

the Jacaranda West Country

Venice. Buffet luncheon at
11:30 a.m., followed by a pro-

information.


But the bulk of production
comes toward the tail of the
winter, most likely still weeks
away.
So in a week or two, the
Thomases will load up their
camper, hitch the car to the
back, and head north. They
plan to leave what's left of
their syrup at a store in North
Port.
"He talked to his niece a
week and a half ago, and she
said, 'don't worry, it's too
mild,' "Judy says. More snow
was on the way, and February
was bound to cool down.
Then, the real spring would
come, and with it, the sap.
Which suits Judy.
Southwestern Florida is a bit
too boring for her too
much of that same old sun-
shine every day.
She looks forward to the
ever-changing weather of
New England.
"You wake up in the morn-
ing, and you never know what
the day will be like," she says.
Judy and Shep Thomas
plan to be at the Venice
Farmers Market on Saturday
mornings until they return to
Vermont. To order syrup from
the family, call (802) 263-

According to their business
card, they also sell rough-cut
lumber.

The Lemon Bay Playhouse
will present a special histori-
cal drama as part of
Englewood History Week this
year. Included in the wide
variety of events scheduled
during Lemon Bay Fest are
three performances of
"Clarence Darrow."
The play chronicles the life
of the famous lawyer who
spent most of his adult life
defending the underdog.
Although Darrow (1857-1938)
was best known for his
defense of the Darwinist John
Scopes in what became
known as the "Monkey Trail,"
he also was famous for repre-
senting a variety of labor
organizations, socialists,
anarchists, and minorities
who were all struggling for
justice and equal rights.
The role of Clarence
Darrow will be portrayed by
Robin Mazey, an actor who is
well known to audiences
around this area. Paul Hyatt is
directing.
Performances will be held
at the restored Green Street
Church and Museum, 416
West Green Street, in Olde
Englewood Village and are
scheduled at 8 p.m. Friday
and Saturday, Feb. 10 and 11,
and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 12.
Tickets are $10 per person
and are on sale now at the
Lemon Bay Playhouse box
office, 475-6756. Proceeds
benefit the Historical Society.

"Man of La Mancha"
opens at The Players Theatre,
838 North Tamiami Trail,
Sarasota, on Feb. 23. It will
run through March 12.
The show that introduced
the world to the hit song,


"The Impossible Dream," was
the smash of the 1965
Broadway season. The story
begins in a Spanish prison
where Miquel de Cervantes
awaits his trial before the
Spanish Inquisition.
Finding himself at the
mercy of his fellow inmates
and forced to appear before
"the governor," Cervantes
acts out his incomplete novel
"Don Quixote." All are deeply
moved by his tale and the
story concludes with the
inspiring, "Impossible
Dream."

served.
Food will be supervised by
Master Chef Kevin Dundon,

by renowned Irish poet
. Patrick Kavanagh in a love
poem entitled, "The Dawning
of the Day." Put to music by
Luke Kelly in the 1960s, the
song has become a seminal
folk song and been covered
by such assets as U2, Sinead

minutes. Proper dress is
required for those taking the
tours, which will be given
every half hour from noon-8
p.m. during the opening
hours of the festival.
The mosaic iconography
was created by Sirio Tonelli
and fresco artist Leonidas
Diamantopoulos. It will be
explained in religious terms
as well as in the technical
terms needed to describe the
workmanship.
According to the leader of
the St. Barbara Church, Very
Reverend Archimandrite
Father Frank M. Kirlangitis,
the Greek Orthodox Church
is the oldest Christian
church, dating to 38 AD,
when the Apostle Andrew
founded the church in the


ancient city of Byzantium. In
330 AD, the Roman Emperor
Constantine chose the site as
the new capitol of the Roman
Empire, christening the city,
"New Rome," although it
came to be called
Constantinople, the city of
Constantine.
That city is today Istanbul
in the Republic of Turkey and
is no longer the capital of any
empire, although it remains
the seat of the leader and
highest authority of the
Orthodox Church, the
Patriarch of Constantinople
and the. home of the
Patriarchal See, he added.

SOCIAL COLUMNIST


A historic

weekend

in Venice

Dr. Bruce Stephenson
spent the weekend in Venice
thanks to Betty Intagliata and
the Venice Historic Society.
The author, city planning con-
sultant and teacher from
Winter Park, Florida spoke
about John Nolen's plan for
Venice.
Dr. Stephenson told the
group cities that provide
affordable housing for work-
ers and parks for community
activities create interconnect-
edness.
"Cities that allow people to
walk including children walk-
ing to school solve obesity
problems," he added.
"If the U.SA. cut their ener-
gy consumption by one third
we wouldn't be dependent on
foreign oil," he told the group.
Mayor Dean Calamaras,
councilman Bill Willson, Pam
Johnson, Tom Bixler, Mary
Horlick and Robert Brooke
were among the hundreds
who enjoyed the informative
and entertaining talks.
Contact the society at 484-
0769. Their next meeting is
Feb 28 at 7 p.m. in the Venice
Public Library Meeting Room.
With a song in their heart
Members of the Venetian
Harmony Chorus celebrated
Mardi Gras early this year with
a luncheon fashion show at
the United Church of Christ.
Over 100 men and women
saw fashions by Laurie's in the
Venice Village Shops. Chairs
Ginna Ruffing and Kerri
DeMike made sure their com-
mittee took care of all the
details. Everyone had Mardi
Cras beads to wear and plenty
of opportunities to buy raffle
tickets.
The Venetian Harmony
Chorus has many internaton-
al awards and want to perform
at fund raising events. Call
480-1480 for information.
If you would like to send
someone a singing valentine
from the Venetian Harmony
Chorus Quartets call 480-1480
or visit venetianharmony.org.
Raising funds for Rotary
Three cheers to Hank Mik-
aelian, Molly Hernandez,
Grady Hough, Barbara Free-
man, Nanci Cuddihy, John
Moody, Brenda Matthews,
Jim Hill, Jim Beach, Roger
Button, Jeff Pick, Terry
Littrell, Neal Van DeRee,
Tommy Taylor, and Jack
Starks for serving on the
Venice-Nokomis Art Festival !
Committee.
Thanks to the Venice High
School Interact Club mem-
bers and the Venice Police
Explorers for their help.
The signs lining the entry to
the Art Festival told the story
of organizations benefiting
from the Rotary Club.
For information about join-
ing this terrific group contact
