A fourth, no-frills athletic facility at Venice High
will house an updated weight/cardio room and
allow the school to bring back junior varsity
teams that have been farmed out.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

It's been a long time com-
ing almost four years -
but an act by the Sarasota
County School Board last
week is giving new life to the
planned Venice High School
Wellness-Athletic Facility. On
Tuesday the board signed off
on phase Ill drawings for the
$450,000 project.
Don't expect a mini Taj
Mahal. The no-frills, part pre-


fab building will have air-con-
ditioning, but new lockers
won't be included, at least not
at this time. according to offi-
cials. The building will be a
concrete block structure sim-
ilar to what already exists on
campus, said Chuck Collins,
director of construction ser-
vices for the school district.
The new facility will be
built over existing tennis
courts near the football stadi-
um, and will be available for
physical education classes


WELLNESS CENTER FUNDS SUFFICIENT?
Venice High Foundation raised 5450,000 based on preliminary
drawings completed a few years back. With newly approved draw-
ings for the Venice High wellness-athletic facility in hand, the
foundation has asked Mike Miller of Waterford Companies to pro-
vide an updated estimate of construction costs, and to bid on the
project. Bids are expected to arrive over the next few weeks, at
which time VHS will know if the money raised will be sufficient or
if they will have to pound the pavement for additional contribu-
tions.

school athletic activities.
The new 8,000-square-foot
facility will house weight lift-
ing and cardiovascular equip-
ment. In addition to PE class-
es and boys and girls, weight-
lifting, cheerleaders and girls
gymnastics are also slated to


use the new facility. A pro-
gram schedule has yet to be
finalized.
School principal Candace
Millington said she hopes to
see the center built by next
fall.

County may subsidize water for low-income families


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER i

The residents want it.
The county wants to pro-
vide it. ;
But the costs are too high
for comfort and the search for
alternatives has begun.
This was the heart of a
Sarasota County commis-
sioners discussion Tuesday as
they tried to figure out what
to do with water line bids that
doubled from what was
expected.
The board heard two bids
for water line installation on
Bay Point Drive, and Shore
Road in Nokomis. Serving
about 715 homes, the pro-
jects' combined costs are
about $3.6 million, said coun-
ty General Manager Program
Management Services Roger
Rasbury.
The entire area west of U.S.
41 uses well water and the
quality is poor, particularly in
time of drought. The county
approached residents about

hooking up to the central
water system.
"This was neighborhood
initiated and has had a very
positive response," Rasbury
said.
The county budgeted
$900,000 for the Shore Road
Water Distribution System,
which would hook central
water to abo1t 220 homes.
"We told sidents we need
in 2004 they would be as-
sessed between $3,000 to
$4,000 per home," Rasbury
said. "That looked fairly con-
servative at the time."
$600 times 20
Fast forward to late 2005
and the bid, for the Shore
Road project jumped to $1.6
million, which would average
to a home assessment of
$8,500 each, or about $600
per year for 20 years.
Commissioners were un-
comfortable to accept the
increase without trying to fig-
ure out a way to lower the
costs.


"My instinct is that this
process is a good idea," said
commissioner Nora
Patterson. "These people are
still going to get a good deal.
I'm worried about people
who can't afford the $600 per
year." I
She suggested setting aside
a pot of public money for
people who can't afford it.
"I'd like to see a policy
establishing a low-income
fund," Patterson said.
She even suggested using
some of the money from the
North Port tax delinquent lot
sale to fund the program. It
would have strict income
qualifications.
Other commissioners were
worried about using money
intended to be set aside for
the community housing
trust, which sets aside land to
promote affordable housing
development.
Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton said he was intrigued by
the idea because Nokomis is

county where housing is still
relatively affordable.
"Loaned for a period of
time would be furthering our
need to preserve such hous-
ing," Thaxton added.
Commission chair David
Mills said he would not be in
favor of a subsidy.
Neglected
Thaxton said he would
support the idea to buy down
the rates because he believes
the area has been neglected.
"They have been in a no
man's land through no fault of
their own," he said. "It was an
avalanche of unfortunate
events which fell on these
people who can least afford
it."
He cited the problem of
waiting to install central
water lines in the area and
said those delays are now
going to cost the residents
more money than anyone
else.
"They didn't chose this
destiny," Thaxton continued.


"We're here and there are
people who can't afford this."
The commissioners agreed
to delay agreeing the decision
to accept the $1.6 million bid
from Westra Construction
Corporation for 60 days.
Rasbury said re-bidding
the project in hopes of receiv-
ing a lower bid is likely not to
work since costs of supplies
and labor have increased dra-
matically in the past two
years.
"This is going to continue
to be a problem as we move
forward with central water
line hook-ups," he said.
In the meantime, the com-
missioners will be having a
larger utilities discussion.
They will also receive a
breakdown on the costs of
installing the lines and what a
subsidy might cost for fami-
lies of different levels.

contract, affecting about 495
homes, was scheduled to be

Patent OK'd for red tide killing formula dispensing apparatus


Inventor Bob Rigby is still awaiting a pending
patent for his red tide killing formula, which he


expects in a matter of mo

BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER. -


"Red tide killing formula
dispensing apparatus" may
not be the sexiest name for
local inventor Bob Rigby's
machine, but that's the least
of his worries. Now that he
has a bonafide U.S. Patent on
his machine design, he's on a
mission to build it. It's not
really a case of putting the
cart before the horse, says
Rigby, who still doesn't have a
patent on the red tide killing
formula itself due to a later fil-
ing date. He's been assured
the latter patent will be forth-
coming in three to six
months. Rigby first came up
with the solution that kills red
tide but doesn't harm marine
life back in 2000. Venice High
School has ,been testing the
solution to confirm its safety
on marine life.
Armed with both patents,
Rigby, a retired heavy equip-
ment company owner, in-
tends to get his machine built
and seek permits to test the
formula in ocean waters. He
estimates it will take two
years to build and do all the
testing once a contract is
received from the state.
"I will start within a few
months after doing the labo-
rious foreign patent filing,"
Rigby said. He already has a
foreign filing certificate (Co-
operative Patent Treaty


nths.

Agreement) and plans to file
in 26 additional countries.
He is now tracking down
his old engineering partner at
Lockheed to begin work on
the dispensing apparatus.
The partner helped Rigby
develop the infamous street
machine that gained notori-
ety over a decade ago, when
he produced a prototype that
could sweep up microscopic
particles of mercury, nutri-

ents and other pollutants. He
recently renewed the street
sweeper patent, but still has-
n't found a corporate partner
to assemble the sweepers or
convince government offi-
cials to invest in them or


wean Florida off stormwater
runoff holding ponds and
canals, a billion-dollar engi-
neering and construction
industry statewide, where 85
to 90 percent of heavy metal
pollutants entering water-
ways collect to this day.
Lockheed Martin told the
state Rigby's machine would
save $700 million to $800 mil-
lion in stormwater run-off
clean-up and do a much bet-
ter job. However, the reten-
tion pond lobby was just to
strong, according to Rigby.
"Florida is now paying the
consequences, with nutrients
flowing from the retention
ponds feeding red tide and
extending the bloom life,"
Rigby said.
Meanwhile, he's been prod-
ding local, regional and state
government officials to step up
to the plate and partner in a
venture to kill red tide blooms
that have been known on occa-
sion to scare off tourists, kill off
marine life, and sicken beach
goers to the economic tune
of $3.5 billion dollars in 2005,
estimates the state.
Pipes, apertures
and sensors
The dispensing apparatus
is- modular, and can be set to
any length. In the open
ocean, it can be expanded to
a half mile, according to
Rigby, to any depth necessary.
In shallow waters, it can be
shortened, and the depth of
the dispensing rods can be
adjusted to shallow depths.
It's designed to be towed at a
speed 3 to 4 .mph, covering
anywhere from 36 to 48 square

miles in a 12-hbur period.
The apparatus, held afloat
with a series of pontoons with
keels, is a manifold assembly
of two main pipes with down-
ward facing apertures spaced
apart. Flexible tubes protrude
from each aperture through
which the red tide killing for-
mula is dispensed.
A sensor extends down
from the central pipe frame to
determine ambient condi-
tions like air temperature and
direction, water temperature
and direction, air and water
speed, concentration of cont-
aminants, and the like.
"The computers coordi-
nate the depth of the waters
and amounts of organism to
disperse with the GPS coordi-
nants for exact location of the


out board track and water
depth to disperse the solu-
tion," Rigby said.
The main dispensing ap-
paratus is hinged and folds in
half like an accordion for easy
towing to a bloom site. A large
vessel with crew tows the
apparatus. Once extended,
two smaller watercraft help
keep its arms aligned as the
red tide killing solution is dis-
pensed in a controlled grid.
Research wannabees
Last year Venice High sci-
ence teacher Charlie Powell
and his students conducted
the first outside analysis of
Rigby's red tide killing formu-
la to test its veracity. He found
it works. Powell found the for-
mula that kills red tide did so

didn't appear to harm aquatic;
life in doses that killed the red,
tide organism either.
Rigby and Powell are now
considering other research
entities, including other area'
high schools and universities,:
to replicate the studies.
"Charlie and I talked about
going ahead with confirma-
tion testing on his work. We'
haven't decided on who to'
approach yet," Rigby said. 1
Two other schools have
already approached Powell
about replicating his work onr
red tide, where other high;
school students will also have
the ability to study this area of
marine biology.
"It doesn't take a scientist tod
see the red tide blooms of
today are longer and bigger
and more frequent," Powell
said at a recent communityfor-
um sponsored by the Gondo-
lier Sun. "We need research (on
detection and monitoring), but
also we need to get rid of it. We
have found a formula that is
effective," Powell said.
' Rigby said he is ready and
waiting to kill red tide. All he
needs is a contract with the
state of Florida.

There are 249 certificate hold-

number in the Feb. 10 edi-

McGoogan to be interim police chief


BY JJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Venice City Council will
yote Tuesday on naming
Deputy Police Chief Dan Mc-
Googan the city's interim top
cop starting March 1.
Chief Jim Hanks is set to
retire Feb. 28, and council has
not selected a replacement.
Interviews with the top six
candidates are slated for later
this month.
City Manager Marty Black
spoke with McGoogan and
Hanks separately and in-
formed them of his recom-
mendation.
"We're doing this in ad-
vance, just so when March 1
comes, there's no panic about
what we're doing," Black said.
Hanks has
committed
himself to
helping the
city, if it needs
it, following ..
his retire-
ment. He has
spent all 30
years of law McGoogan
enforcement
with the VPD,
the last five as police chief.
Black said there was no
talk of extending his retire-
ment date. "We've got this
date, it's clean, no confusion,"
Black said.
VPD management has
been under heavy criticism
since an independent audit
last summer pointed to a lack
of leadership, documentation
and organization within the
department.
Hanks has said he always
planned to retire in spring
2006, but he did not state that
officially or publicly until five
weeks after some of the
Matrix Report's initial findings


were released last summer.
McGoogan has been with
the VPD for nearly 25 years.
Both he and Hanks were the
top contenders for the police
chief job five years ago.
McGoogan did not apply in
this latest round.
Salary range for the new
chief was advertised at
$85,000-$95,000. Minimum
requirements included a
bachelor's degree, additional
law enforcement education
and .management experience.
The top six candidates are
Maj. David Allen, Miami
Beach, Fla.; Deputy Chief
Cara Blunt, Detroit, Mich. (re-
tired); Chief of Central Bro-
ward Stephen Canfield, Deer-
field Beach, Fla. (retired);
Deputy Chief James Harn,
Cooper City, Fla. (retired);
Chief Roger Reinke, Marco
Island, Fla.; and Assistant
Chief Julie Williams, Lansing,
Mich. (retired).
Other agenda items
Venice City Council meets
at 1:30 p.m. in council cham-
bers of city hall. A complete
meeting agenda and materi-
als is available at venicegov.
corn under the public meet-
ings link.
Here are the agenda high-
lights:
Eagle Point water tower
- Council members will
decide if Eagle Point Home-
owners Association should be
allowed to demolish and
remove a historic water tower
that has fallen into disrepair.
A contract with the' city
signed 15 years ago required
the property owner to main-
tain the water tower, along
with other historic structures.
At its Jan. 24 meeting, council
directed staff to review the
original 1991 agreement that


brought Eagle Point into city
limits, the changes made to
that agreement in 1997 and
the type of development that
was supposed to go in there.
Preservationists accuse Eagle
Point of purposely letting the
tower deteriorate.
City vs. county relations
- The city manager will give
a report on the strained rela-
tions between city and Sara-
sota County. Venice and the
county have .been at odds
over land annexations, trans-
portations costs and new
development in North Venice.
City council and county com-
missioners are planning a
joint workshop in April to
resolve their differences,
while top staff will meet
March 17.
Villa Paradiso Council
will consider a Planned Unit
Development rezoning re-
quest made by Westfield
Homes for 155 acres bordered
by Laurel Road to the north
and Border Road to the south.
The staff report states there
can be no more than 593
dwelling units. Initial concept
plans show 143 single-family
homes starting at $400,000
each, 130 townhouse-style
villas starting at $300,000
each and 320 condominium
units starting at $300,000
each. Out of the 155 acres, 89
of them would be dedicated
to open space. The develop-
ment also will build a new
north-south connector road
for Laurel and Border roads,
contribute to buying a new
ladder truck for the Venice
Fire Department and donate
1.7 acres to the city for a park.
New finance director -
Council will consider hiring
Jeff Snyder as the new finance
director following an 18-
month search. His starting


salary would be $108,000. a
year.
Laurel Road lights -
Public Works Director Larry
Heath seeks permission to
install street lights along
Laurel Road from the inter-
section of Knights Trail to the
Venetian Golf & River Club.
There would be 13 lights on
existing poles, and 21 lights
on concrete poles.
New garbage trucks -
Council will decide whether
to purchase four new front-
loading trucks for the solid
waste department at a cost of
$572,658.
Foundation Park -
Council will consider enter-
ing negotiations with Jon E
Swift Inc. for final design
and construction of Foun-
dation Park, at the corner of
Tampa Avenue and U.S. 41
Business next to Venice
Little Theatre.

County changes neighborhood traffic prog ram


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Want a speed bump in
your neighborhood?
For now on, you'll have to
chip in for it.
The Sarasota County Com-
mission ad-
ded a new
level of ser-
vice to the
neighbor-
hood traffic
management
program this
week, decid- .
ing that com- Staub
munities opt-
ing to in-
crease safety and slow traffic
will now have to pay a share
of the costs.
This tier system will allow
for a sharing of costs for five
of the most popular of the so-
called "traffic-calming" op-
tions, including speed cush-
ions; neckdowns; raised
crosswalks without brick sur-
face; speed tables without


brick surface; and speed
tables with imprint.
The county will pay 75 per-
cent of the costs, while a local
public improvement district
would pay the balance.
Commissioner Shannon
Staub said she was interested
in getting the communities
that want traffic calming tobe
invested in the efforts.
This is in place of the com-
munities receiving all types of
traffic devices free of charge.
The main reason she was
interested in changing the
program is that some com-
munities are taking advan-
tage of the county's generosi-
ty.
"It has become a little too
easy to do this," Staub said.
A community on Gondola
Drive in Venice, off Shamrock
Drive near Center Road, was
able to persuade the county
to install eight speed tables in
the community.
"I think that is a bit exces-
sive," Staub said. "Everyone
wants to jump to the most


elaborate device which is free.
The intention is to prevent
people from cutting through
for a shortcut. We seem to
have strayed from that origi-
nal intention."
Tabled
The county
set aside .
about, $1.25
million for .-
the program, ",
agreeing to
pay all of the
costs for
some pro-
jects, while Mercier
agreeing to
split the costs 50-50 on more
expensive projects, said
county Traffic Engineer Don
Galloway.
The money was expected
to last about 10 years. Five
years into the program, there
is about $425,000, with an
additional $255,000 available
in 2007.
The free projects are for
simple things such as signs or


street line-painting. The 50-
50 projects are larger speed
tables and intersection
changes.
Neighborhoods have taken
advantage of the county's
generosity and spent a large
portion of the money on the
less-elaborate speed tables,
which are large speed bumps.
Galloway said the speed
tables are the most popular
program and have been built
free to the
public when ;.: J
requested "
and ap- '
proved.
The board
agreed to
charge for
more of the
programs to
force a Thaxton
change in the
approach by various neigh-
borhood programs to address
traffic problems.
Commissioner Paul Mer-
cier said the program is set-
ting up false expectations


for people in the communi-
ties that receive these bene-
fits.
"Until the citizens take
responsibility to solve their
own problems by changing
their own driving behavior,
we can do very little," Mercier
said.
Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton went even further, saying
the board is powerless in
what it can do to change the


behavior of the driving pub-
lic.
"We are not going to be
able to regulate people to do
the right thing," Thaxton
said.
Formal approval of the
cost-sharing change will
come back in a change to the
county's ordinance.

County buys land for office expansion


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

More than 11 acres of land
off Cattleman Road could
some day be used to accom-
,modate several of the main
'departments of Sarasota
County government.
County General Manager
of Facility Services Michael
Kirk said the $6.5 million pur-
chase on the back side of the
Cattleman Road Complex
could be the future home of
Public Works and Environ-
mental Services.
"This would certainly
address our future needs to
meet existing and future
-staffing needs," Kirk said.
"Having everyone at the same
Location will mean greater

Pand cut way,
Back on drive

Such a
'move would
not take place
for five to 10
years, with
the expansion Patterson
of the existing
building. The
Mictron property also has two
10,000-square-foot buildings,
one an office building leased
by the county in the past, and
a machine shop the current
owner will be allowed to use
until he can relocate.
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson said the purchase
makes sense because it offers
the county lots of options.
"This is just one tactical
move in an attempt to achieve
the broader facility master
plan," said County Admi-
nistrator Jim Ley.
The county has been
focused on the property
.because it could be used as a
central loca-
tion, but the
purchase
does not lock
the county
into any
future facility.
The county
has several
Ley ^ employees at
a leased facili-
ty farther
south on Cattleman. Moving
them up the road could save
the county up to $500,000 per
year.
Public Works is currently at
the BOB Big Office Building
off Fruitville Road.. About
$10 million has been poured
into the building. With a cur-
rent appraised value at about
$10 million, selling it right
now would not be practical.
"Those numbers are a pre-
liminary appraisal," Ley said.
Centralizing
The county has been
actively seeking to create a
central county facility for all of
its departments, but Ley said
the cost of land and available
space has not worked.
Commission chair David
Mills is worried that if the
county expands the Cattle-
man Complex there will not
be enough room for parking.
Ley said some of the relief
will come with a plan to have
creative parking design and

LOADED from Page 1 A
Venice High School, feels he
was excluded from the pro-
cess for personality reasons.
His repeated calls to Lopez
went unanswered, and VHA
did not give him a chance to
submit a developer's bid
before awarding the contract
to Picerne Development, bas-
ed in Altamonte Springs, Fla.
After reviewing the propos-
al by Piceme Development,
Baker said VHA is being over-
charged for a set of "substan-
dard" apartment buildings in
a deal that is "a big giveaway."
The application mirrors a
proposal made by Baker in
May 2004 that Lopez said was
impossible and against U.S.
Department of Housing and
Urban Development regula-
tions.
Baker maintains what he
said two years ago he could
build 120 apartment units for
$12 million.
"Th6 process has not been
open," Baker said. "You can
go as far as say it hasn't been
honest.... When government
agencies do not bring in other
parties, interested parties, it
makes people suspicious.
Imagine me, who started this
whole project at the request of
the city, and finding out
through the newspaper they'd
given it to someone else. And
then you look at the project,
and it's substandard for
Venice."
Attacking the messenger
Lopez was quick to defend
the fees, saying the amounts
are typical of today's con-
struction market. He also said
VHA receives 20 percent of
the developer's fee, about
$312,000, because it's a co-
developer with Picerne. 0
And Lopez has criticized
Baker, saying he is out to
make money on this deal and
would've taken the entire
developer's fee.
"The fees that are in that
are what is standard for the
industry," Lopez said.
Baker disagrees. As the
project's co-developer, he be-
lie.ves VHA should be receiv-
'ling at'least 5d'pereft off mhe
developer's fees a share he
said is typical for this type of
project.
Lopez has been under
heavy criticism for his gruff
handling of residents and
resistance to outside partici-
pation in VHA's proposal.
Baker was "basically thrown
out" of Lopez' office in 2004
while attempting to explain
his plan, Baker said.
"It's a an application that
maximizes developer profits,"
Baker said. "It's a big give-
away. I don't see what Venice
is getting for this. They're not
getting a wonderful project.
The (Grove Terrace) residents
are not having their voice
heard."
Lopez, who plans to resign
March 31, said the personal
attacks on him are because
his tax-credit plan is flawless.
He has been with VHA
since January 2004 and is
credited with digging the
housing complex out of fi-
nancial straits and numerous
building code violations.
"They're employing a tech-
nique to attack the messenger
if they can't attack the mes-
sage," Lopez said.
Attacking the message
VHA will not find out until
August whether the state will
approve its application.
LIHTC financing is a compet-
itive process, with no more
than one project per county
being selected.
Grove Terrace, which was
renamed Brookside Village by
VHA members last month, is
the only applicant in Sarasota
County.
That doesn't guarantee
approval, which is based on a
project's merits and lottery
number. Those at the end of
the list are less likely to be
funded, and the VHA project
drew a poor lottery number,


at the back of the pack.
Fees being questioned are
for items including general
contractor ($917,000), archi-
tect design ($150,000), archi-
tect supervision ($50,000) and
engineering ($120,000),
which all go to Picerne De-
velopment, as does 80 per-
cent of the developer's fee
($1.25 million).


"The process has not
been open. You can go
as far as to say it hasn't
been honest."
Brad Baker, afford-
able housing develop-
er and Venice High
School graduate


If the funding is approved,
each of the low-income
apartments would cost
$157,305 to build.
Preiksat also questions the
75-year land lease between
VHA and the co-developers
- Picerne Development and
a for-profit subsidiary ofVHA,
named Venice Housing De-
velopment Corp. Picerne will
only be charged $1 a year and
maintain ownership of the
buildings, while VHA keeps
ownership of the land.
This can easily be consid-
ered a $3 million "gift" to
Picerne, according to Baker.
In all of the tax-credit deals
Baker has brokered, the
developer has to buy the land
and carry that mortgage cost.
VHA chair Richard Appell
signed the lease agreement,
but there is no record of a
board vote on the lease.
Lopez said all of the "con-
cepts" were approved in the
2005 Master Developer's
Agreement, so timing of indi-
vidual board votes are a tech-
nicality.
That goes to the heart of
Preiksat's concerns. He fears
that VHA board members are
approving Lopez recommen-


nations without thoroughly
reviewing them.
"Peter (Lopez) presents
this to them verbally, and they
approve them," Preiksat said.
"It's obvious they as a board
are not doing their due dili-
gence. They're just taking his
word for it."
Time for challenges
Third parties like the
Residents Council can
challenge the application
later this summer. Preiksat
said the council has not
decided if it will challenge,
but it continues to have con-
cerns.
Even Venice City Manager
Marty Black has concerns
about the proposal. The con-
struction plan calls for the
apartments to be made out of
wood frames instead of con-
crete like the ones built 35
years ago.
Black, who used to be a city
planner, said wood is a
cheaper material, but is a
poor choice given the area's
risk of hurricanes, fire, rotting
and insect infestation. The
buildings all would be next to
Hatchett Creek, an area prone
, to flooding.
Despite this, Venice plans
on maintaining its support of
the project.
"The city is supporting
redevelopment of affordable
housing. ... It's important to
the residents and the com-
munity," Black said.
Withdrawing that city sup-
port may be the only way to
save public housing in South
County, according to Baker.
The initial plans call for
three-story, wooden apart-
ments that do not have an

REDEVELOPMENT FEES
Venice Housing Authority sub-
mitted its application Feb. I
for Low-Income Housing Tax
Credit financing that would
fund the demolition of the
current 50 apartments and
their replacement with 72
new units.
After reviewing the applica-
tion, affordable-housing
developer Brad Baker, a
Venice High School graduate,
said this deal "maximizes
developer profits" and "is a big
giveaway." Baker was not
given the chance to bid on
the project a year ago.
Here are some of the high-
lights:
* Total project cost $11.3
million
- Actual construction cost -
$6.55 million (58 percent of
total cost)
* Overhead and fees $4.8
million (42 percent of total
cost)
* Developer's fee $1.56
million (20 percent of this is
paid back to VHA)
- Average cost per new unit
-$157,305

elevator. Also buried within
the deal is that only 15 per-
cent of current VHA residents
are guaranteed a home when
the new units are finished.
All of this adds up to a bad
deal for people who can't
afford it, say critics.
"It's something we're going
to live with for 75 years,"
Baker said. "I've lived in every
project I've ever built. What
they're designing is not some-
thing I would want to live in.
That's my gut feeling on this."

- "It's much needed," Mill-
ington said. "I am really excit-
ed about having this facility
-available for our students."
The school has yet to
determine if it will keep the
*center open for evening use
on a regular basis, Millington
said.
"It will be open during
|evenings if it's a necessity,"
Raid VHS athletic director
Larry Sandburg.
Funding for the project is
being split three ways by the
Sarasota County School Dis-
tict, Gulf Coast Community
Foundation ofVenice and pri-
vate donations collected by
the VHS Foundation.
Bring back the JV
"We have very limited gym
space, and with the size of our
student body, we needed
more space for students to
utilize during the school day
and for practice after school.
This project addresses that
need," Millington said.
New courts in recent years
gave the tennis team better
digs, but created a space is-
sue, Millington said, because
the wrestling team, which
that practiced in portables on
the future court site, had to be


relocated.
The wrestling team moved
its practices into the school's
original (South) gym, but
school officials found the
concrete underlayment sat
too deep and condensation
formed beneath the wrestling
mats, warping the wood
flooring.
The wrestling team was
then moved into a separate
facility that housed the
weight room, and the weight
room was moved into South
Gym. Neither has bleachers
or shower facilities.
The new facility will free up
another building for more
physical education classes.
More important, it will bring
back the JV
"The goal is to get our
junior varsity teams, current-
ly practicing off campus, back
onto campus. Right now
they're split among area mid-
dle schools," Sandburg said.
"The purpose of building
the wellness athletic facility is
to keep kids here immediate-
ly after school, so students
don't have to go home or to
another school before team
practice. We've found some
couldn't find their way back
... that it was too much of a
bother to come back. We
think we will get more kids

An artist's rendering of the long-awaited Venice High Wellness-Athletic Training Facility. The
8,000-square-foot facility would be the fourth athletic building on Venice High's campus.
School officials have high hopes it will be ready for use next fall,


involved in extracurricular
activities this way.
"We've still got to get the
weightlifting and cardio
equipment to go into the new
building. We're working with
boosters to purchase equip-
ment and determine exactly
what that's going to be," he
said.
Delays
It didn't take long to gain
community support for the
idea of a new athletic facility
on campus back in 2002.
Proponents hoped it would
be a one-year project. But
building a substantial facility
based on volunteer efforts


hasn't turned out to be an
especially efficient process.
The facility hasn't been a
priority project for the school
district, which signs off on
each step of the project, or for
contractors and architects
who are volunteering their
services. They've had some of
their busiest years ever.
Deciding what the build-
ing would look like inside and
what programs would be
offered also took longer than
expected, said Wayne Hall, a
local attorney whose son was
in high school playing foot-
ball and wrestling when the
project began, but who has
since finished college. Hall


heads the VHS Foundation, a
booster organization that
leads fundraising activities for
the school.
"What started out as a lux-
ury is now a necessity. None
of us dreamed it would take
four years," Hall said. "It
seems to be taking forever...
with the construction boom,
delay in drawings, hurri-
canes, busy schedules. The
school district can be slow
too. It's not quite on the top of
anybody's desk. It's hard for
me to push people when they
are Volunteering their ser-
vices and time.
"It's going to be a good pro-
ject. High school sports in-


volves a lot of training.
Everybody out there lifts
weights today.
"We are just afraid the
costs, based on earlier draw-
ings, might be a little higher
than anticipated. We've raised
$450,000. Those numbers
may be out of date."
The Sarasota County
School District is contribut-
ing $150,000 toward the esti-
mated $450,000 project. Gulf
Coast Community Founda-
tion ofVenice provided a one-
time grant of $160,000, with
another $75,000 grant com-
ing from the Community
Foundation of Sarasota
County. The rest is made up
of private donations by many
individuals, Hall said.
Venice High School has
three athletic facilities: North
Gym (22,197 square feet) with
bleachers and shower facili-
ties, South Gym (12,707
square feet), and the weight
room turned wrestling room
(2,998 square feet). The well-
ness-athletic facility (8,000
square feet) would be the
fourth athletic, facility on
Venice High's campus.

Surveys ask residents for beach options


Sarasota County wants to know what
Manasota Key property owners
think about beach renourishment and seawalls.


BY GAVIN OFF
ASSISTANT ENGLEWOOD EDITOR

Manasota Key residents
will have their say soon on
what kind of beach renour-
ishment project if any is
suitable for the island.
Sarasota County officials
are mailing a survey to the
key's gulf-front homeowners,
seeking their input on a
potential beach replenish-
ment project for the key.
The survey, which will
include information present-
ed at a county meeting in
December, was to reach area
homes this week.
Laird Wreford, the county's
coastal resource manager,
said the survey could be a
beginning point for the pro-
jectthat he hoped would go
before commissioners in
April.
"We'll have a much better
idea of how to frame our
response to the board," Wre-
ford said.
County commissioners
asked staff to investigate the
beach replenishment options
after they rejected a proposal
to build a 2,000-foot-long sea
wall on the key.
Last September, 17 home-
owners from 8000 Manasota
Key Road to 8210 Manasota
Key Road sought a variance to
install a sheet-pile steel bulk-
head to protect their homes
from beach erosion.
According to a county staff
report, bulkheads protect
upland property, but could
harm "coastal processes.
shoreline stability, neighbor-
ing properties, lateral public
pedestrian access, .-sea ,turle
nesting beach and coastald
hammock habitat."
The report goes on to state
that if the sea wall is erected,
shore protection structures
would have to be built on
neighboring properties to
minimize the negative effects.
County commissioners
denied the sea wall request,
prompting a closer look into a
renourishment project.
"Depending on what kind
of response we get back, we
may hold another public
meeting for everyone on the
key," Wreford said.
There is currently no size,
cost or design associated with
the renourishment project.
'Totally wrong'
More than 22 miles of
Sarasota County's 31 miles of
beaches were deemed criti-
cally eroded, according to a
2002 Florida Department of

Environmental Protection
report.
A 2001-2002 beach feasi-
bility study by Charlotte and
Sarasota counties recom-
mended two potential beach
replenishment sites on
Manasota Key.
One site extended from
6870 Manasota Key Road to
4040 North Beach Road, just
south of the Charlotte County
line.
The second, a much larger
project, extended from
Manasota Public Beach to the


southern end of Stump Pass
Beach State Park.
Neither project has been
undertaken.
Charles Miller, a Manasota
Key resident, said the process
of protecting gulf-front
homes simply takes too long.
Miller supported the sea wall
request as a temporary solu-
tion, even though his home
sits a comfortable 50 yards
from gulf waters.
"I think it's totally wrong
that Sarasota County govern-
ment doesn't allow people to
quickly fix problems to their
beach at their cost to make
sure they can save their
house," Miller said.
'Critical'
Miller also disagreed with

the idea that only gulf-front
homeowners should pay a
beach replenishment assess-
ment.
Wreford said gulf-front
property owners are paying
20 percent of Siesta Key's $7.8
million project. The state is
funding 30 percent and the
county is paying about 50
percent.
It's unlikely, however, that
the state would contribute
that much for a Manasota Key
project, because of a lack of
public access to the beach.
Charging only gulf-front
homeowners "makes no
sense whatsoever," Miller
said. "Do we divide it up by
neighborhoods? That's what I

object to."
Miller said he favored a
countywide assessment,
since all residents are free to
walk the beach, even if it bor-
ders private homes.
Manasota Key resident
Richard Boote, however, said
gulf-front owners would likely
agree to the project, even if
they're the only residents
assessed. He added bay-side
residents should pay a "small
percentage."
"If the county properly
educated the homeowners on
the key, I believe there will be
favorable support to beach
renourishment,`" Boote said.
"I believe it's critical the beach
renourishment :be approved.


This is the only responsible
thing to do."
Boote said that if residents
deny the renourishment pro-
ject, state and county officials
will have no other option but
to approve a sea wall.

THE WINDS OF CHANGE


have come to Florida.


On the heels of the 2004 and 2005 hurricane
seasons, many weather experts believe
that Florida has entered a new era where
hurricanes are the norm, not the exception.


Of course, no.one can control the weather.
So, at Florida Power & Light Company, we
believe that as Florida's weather changes-
along ,with changes in our population, energy
demands and other dynamics--we too must
change. We must adapt to new circumstances
by finding new ways to deliver reliable
electricity. As one example, for each of the
past three years, we have invested nearly $1.5
billion in new power generation and deliver)
systems. XNWe expect a similar investment level
for the next three years as well.


MAKING OUR SYSTEM "STORM SECURE"
To strengthen our grid against the ravages of
storms, we've developed a plan called "Storm
Secure." It's a comprehensive solution that
addresses a variety of issues, including:


* Rapid completion of facility upgrades
m, and repairs resulting from the 2005
hurricane season.
Upgrades to our system to withstand
higher wind velocity.
Converting more overhead lines
to underground.
Revising our methods of inspecting poles.
Increasing vegetation management,
particularly around critical infrastructure.


Our Storm Secure Plan ,will help our system
withstand the effects of stronger storms.
with fewer and less disruptive outages during
severe weather. The bottom line: a stronger,
more reliable electric system for you. The details
are available at www FPL.com!StormSecure.


FIGHTING HIGH FUEL COSTS
Purchasing fuel to operate our generating
units is a major expense, and prices for these
fuels (particularly natural gas and crude oil)
have skyrocketed in recent years. We've taken
major steps to address this issue, including:


* A commitment to fuel diversity-we use
a variety of energy sources including natural
gas. oil, nuclear power. coal and purchased
power. This gives us the option of using less
expensive fuels (such as coal and nuclear
power) whenever possible.


Optimizing the use of nuclear power-,-we
continue our longstanding commitment
to taking full advant-age of low-cost
nuclear power.


Improving fuel efficiency-in recent years,
we have re-powered older, less efficient
geqerat~pg upits and built pe.sr'fate-of-
the-art ones. Overall, we have improved
the fuel efficiency of our plants by 12 percent.


We can't control fuel prices on the global
market. However, by controlling our
energy use, we can produce electricity
more cost-efficiently.


SAVING YOU MONEY THROUGH CONSERVATION
\'e can help you make the best and most
economical use of our product. \Ve offer
a variety of energy conservation programs
for homes and businesses of all sizes.
Since 198i, our residential and business
customers have earned more than $1.5
billion in energy-saving incentives. If you
want to make your home or business more
energy-efficient, rely on us. Complete
information is available at www.FPL.com.


WHAT IT ALL MEANS FOR YOU
From weather patterns to population and
growth patterns, Florida is changing. At FPL,
we're responding to these new challenges to
provide you with new levels of service and
reliability Your satisfaction is our number one
goal-and that's one thing that will never change.

- LET 'EM HAVE IT! WVE DED HOW YOU'E TO O

THE 1-MILL SCHOOL TAX? CALL US-AT 207-1111.

More fees, bigger roads, better traffic flow


Widen roads. The road impact fees should be raised because
we need bigger highways and other areas need enlarged like
Venice Avenue and Tamiami Trail and State Road 776. Some of
the county roads in South Venice and Venice Gardens should
be widened from two lanes to four lanes to spread the traffic
flow out to a wider area. As far as the connecting sidewalks and
bike trails, I'm not sure with the recent criminal activities from
the 1990s that putting sidewalks on Caspersen Beach would be
a good idea.


Three cheers. I wish to
offer three cheers to Mr.
Vedder's column with respect
to the planning for Venice.
This should have been in edi-
torial form on the front page
in large print, not on page
10A. The paper should con-
tinually follow up his point of
view in future publications.
Venice, where are you going?
Illegal turns. I'm calling
about the violations that I see
every time I pass by the exit
onto Center Road from the
Walgreens parking lot. The
pavement is marked and
there's a sign that says no left
turn. There are so many peo-
ple who do it, I don't know


why there aren't more acci-
dents. If the police were to
park there once a month for
three hours, they could get all
the citations they want for a
month. It's really dangerous
and I don't understand how
they could not see the signs.
Have some courage. The
items in Let'em Have It are
much, much too long. Those
people should sound off in a
letter to the editor and have
the courage to sign them. The
article in American Profiles
this week of the water towers
was wonderfully entertain-
ing. Venice, let us save our
water tower, like other places
have done.


Too limited. You asked if
access to the Venice Munic-
ipal Airport too limited. The
answer is yes. Wives and other
members of household fami-
lies are not permitted access
to the airport in vehicle even
though their husband or
father or whatever has a
access card. There are elderly
pilots who can no longer fly
and have therefore given up
their airplanes and their
hangers, but like to go out
onto the field to visit their
friends and talk. They are also
prohibited from access and it
seems to me that is unreason-
able.
The presumption is that
anybody who goes on the air-
port has to have a 'hangar.
That's it. In my opinion, that's
against the law. The airport
was set up for the conve-
nience of the general public
with aviation interests. So the
answer is yes, there is too
much regulation the use of
the airport by the general


public.
What's the secret? Every-
one seems to think that the
more money you dump into
the school system, the better
the students will be as a
result. Why do private schools
that are generally required to
adhere to tight budgets seem
to get better results? The
teachers in the private school
system are generally paid
much less than the teachers
in the public school, system
and their benefits are less
costly. Same goes with the
support staff. So what is their
secret?
It must be total dedication
to educating in a disciplined
atmosphere. The parents,
students, faculty and support
staff have a positive attitude
toward getting the job done. It
also appears that over the
years they've let the Venice
High School campus deterio-
rate to the point where it
would be too costly to fix it up
verses tearing it down and


rebuilding a new school. Now
this looks like it was done by
design. If routine, yearly
maintenance had been done,
that school could last for
many years. We certainly still
have nice sports facilities over
there. Why has the school be
allowed to deteriorate by
design? Taxpayers are paying
for all that.
Not right. Let me get this
straight. A council member's
boss owns a piece of property
with a run-down water tower
that was supposed to be
saved and this council mem-
ber is in favor of demolishing
the water tower? I guess his-
boss can build a house on
that piece of property then.
That doesn't sound right to
me and I'd like to have more
of the facts.
Something else. If the
teacher's union says that at


least a third of the teachers
are not in support of the refer-
endum, it makes me wonder:
If a teacher can pay $300 in
extra taxes, and make an extra
$7,000-$10,000 a year in
salary, why wouldn't they be
in favor of it? There must be
something else that the pub-
lic doesn't know about. That
just doesn't make sense.
Silly stuff. I have lived here
in Venice going on 18 years
and if anyone ever came up to
me on the beach and said I
had to limit the amount of
shells that you will take, I
would tell them mind your
business and take a walk.
There are plenty of shells on
Venice Beach to go around for
everyone. I can't imagine any
talking about this silly stuff
when there are more impor-
tant things and other issues at
the time.

OUR VIEW



Floridians' insurance options are running out


As many predicted, what the past two
Florida hurricane seasons brought was
fierce winds, flooding rains and an
insurance, dilemma that will handicap many
people's ability to recover from future storms.
Recently Allstate Floridian and Nation-
wide announced plans to drop 125,000 poli-
cyholders across the state. Another Florida
insurance giant, State Farm, is not taking on
any new customers.
For years, Floridians took their insurance
coverage for granted confident it would
take care of their damages, as long as they
made their payments. Now it is scramble
time for thousands of state residents who
have to come up with another provider.
Some might defend the insurance compa-


nies, given the huge number of claims they
were overwhelmed with the past two years in
Florida. As any business knows, you must
make adjustments in your plan in order to
survive and continue to thrive.
And, in face of the many more storms fore-
cast for the Suinshine State, this is indeed a
matter of survival, thus the drastic steps
being taken by insurance providers. The
scary part is that other insurance companies
may well follow suit.
So what does the average family do when
faced with the cancellation of a policy they
cannot replace from another insurer?
The good news is they can turn to the
state-run insurer, Citizens Property Insur-
ance Corp., for coverage. The bad news is that


Citizens is running at an estimated $1.5 bil-
lion deficit and will need some type of bail-
out.,
The Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund
will also need to be bailed out, as it has seen
its reserves drop to $500 million from $7 bil-
lion -'all due to millions of dollars in claims
paid out by insurers the past two years.
It doesn't take a math whiz to see that the
wagons need to be circled quickly as this
year's storm season is just months down the
road.
Florida lawmakers will have recommen-
dations before them in March from the Task
Force on Long Term Solutions for Florida's
Hurricane Insurance Market. *
A preliminary first draft has already been


changed and will be redrafted for review on
Feb. 27-28, with additional changes antici-
pated.
Recommendations include that the state
building code be uniformly adopted and
enforced, and the Panhandle exception to
the building code should be eliminated; and
a more rigorous study of the manufactured
home market be done. These ideas may or
may not be included in the final draft.
Creative ideas from the task force must be
acted upon by our lawmakers in Tallahassee;
We are sure the gravity of the situation has
not been lost on our representatives, who
must find solutions that provide homeown-
ers options to protect them when hurricane
season returns.


They had



to do it


BOB VEDDER
i- '

When taxpayers voted to
increase their taxes by 1 mill
to raise money for Sarasota
county schools four years
ag0o. it wvas none too soon.
[r OT schooks had sutilfered:a '
long history of cuts because
of a state system of funding
[hat sends some of your tax
4lollars to other districts to
equalize their education op-
portunities. We are referred to
us a donor county. In effect,
this dumbs down the district.
i However, through all of
fhat, our district.prior to the
referendumm had results
pmong the best in the state.
Wilma Hamilton often said
we ranked No. 1 in the state
and wanted to keep it that
6ay.
: The referendum was to
raise $100 million, which
seems like a lot of money. Yet
We were in bad shape.
I The funds were to restore
Some of the money held from
teachers and elevate their
,ay. It would help restore
,remedial and summer school
programs to get at the
dropout and graduation rate
problems. It would expand
areas like guidance, which
had been stripped bare over
|the years.
About $25 million would
e available to expand into
inew areas to go after the
problems identified by
;School Match, such as the
.education gap for minorities,
the dropout and graduation
rates and increased technical
schooling.
Something rather incredi-
ble happened, and the district
received more money than it
planned. Instead of $25 mil-
lion a year it was getting $30
million, and by the end closer
to $40 million, all because of'
the real estate boom.
So, what to do with all of
this surprise money?
In the beginning it allowed
the district to move faster
than it originally planned,
which was a good thing. Then
officials found they could put
more in reserve to bring it to
the maximum allowed by the
school board. But that still left
them with around $20 million
the voters did not think was
going to be raised or needed.
What to do with the $20
million? That's easy enough
- spend it.
The district figured the tax-
payers will understand,
because they'll know about


the rule that you can't have
more than 10 percent in sur-
plus and you definitely need
to stay within the rules. And
anyway, it's only $20 million,
so they had to spend it.
One might reason that
when they saw they were get-
ting more than had been
expected they would change
the 10 percent rule, save the
money and apply much of it
to subsequent years so we
could ask less from the tax-
payers. More drastically, I
guess, they could have
reduced the millage rate.
The problem with spend-
ing on recurring costs is you
.then. have built in a much1
higher level of spending.
One example of how the
$20 million has been spent:
$4 million was earmarked to
give teachers a 7-percent
raise this semester for addi-.
tional education classes they
may or may not take. It is an
unnecessary $4 million give-
away. But remember, it is only
$4 million and they had to
spend it.
We hoped the oversight
committee appointed to
watch out for the taxpayers
would help control this kind
of situation. Yet many of them
came from Citizens for Better
Schools, which pushed for
the referendum and thus was
in lockstep with the adminis-
tration. We thought they were
our advocates; it ended up
they were the board's.
This group didn't know
about the 7-percent giveaway
and never questioned it, like
they didn't question why we
were spending the extra $20
million. They received a
ledger from the schools on
how they spent the dollars
and agreed that was how they
spent it.
Never once (at least to the
public) did .they communi-
cate about their oversight or
any concerns they may have
had or do anything that
looked like an oversight com-
mittee. This year they did do a
brochure and made a presen-
tation to the school board,
however.
One of the things that gets
lost in these referendums is
the taxpayer. You always hear
we have to do this for the chil-
dren someone needs to
think about and speak up for
the taxpayer. Our taxpayers
pay the highest school taxes,
or close to it, of any district in
the state. Be proud we are
at the top,
Let there be no misunder-
standing. This district needs
more money than it receives
from the state and our normal
funding, but it also needs to
learn how to look out for the
taxpayer and be more frugal.
We voted for $100 million
last time and four years later
are being asked to give them

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Mobile home parks are America


Editor:
With all this discussion about mobile home parks being
taken over by developers, one point -is never mentioned:
Mobile home parks are what the United States has strived for
manly years to obtain an integrated society.
They are not slum areas. They are made up of a wonderful
blend of people from all walks of life, some living on meager
pensions or Social Security, other of modest means along with
a millionaire or two. You wouldn't know which group one
belongs to.
Means is not important, nor is what a person did in their
"former" life. Most people in mobile homes are there because
they embrace the lifestyle available only in such parks. They
live for today, they care about others, they give their best to the
society in which they have chosen to live as well as the city in
which it is incorporated.
Yesterday is gone and their memories are tucked away for
safekeeping only; they do not dwell on their past lives. Today
they are volunteers as well as employees for the closed com-
munity, the county and the city. They are livers and doers, and
we all live together in harmony, young and old. Is this not what
America has strived to be for so many years?
It would be a disgrace to our city, or any city or town, to allow
such a fine society to be wasted. It makes no difference
whether the property is on the shore or inland or whether it is
made up of homes or manufactured modules.' It's a working,
productive, happy, integrated, caring society without which
our towns cannot survive. It also happens to be one of the few
remaining reasonably priced living options.
City fathers: Think before you rezone every inch of land.
Your city or town will suffer from such a decision. You cannot
live without these residents.

'Boom' is not the
sound of superiority
Editor:
Hurricanes being the
biggest threat to our way of
life in Southwest Florida,
what is the second biggest
threat? From recent reports
and quotes, apparently it's the
boomers and big money.
A developer who wants to
buy a mobile home park situ-
ated on the water and build
- what else million-dollar
condos stated that "afford-
able housing does not belong
on the waterfront." At last
Tuesday's Venice Planning
Commission meeting the
planner for Kelly's Way, a four-
story condo at 45 feet (or


more) to be built at Park,
Menendez and Palmetto in
the Historic Apartment Dis-
trict (which has predomi-
nately only one-story single-
family homes and small two-
story condos) stated that "the
boomers are here, of which I
am one, and we have more
money."
Does all that money give
boomers the right to bulldoze
over us less-financially fortu-
nate older people? I certainly
hope not, but the trend seems
to be going that way with very
little we can do about it.
Boomers, you are so self-
assured and arrogant. But be
careful, you just never know
what the future may bring.

Students need
more than tax funds
Editor:
John Clarke sarcastically
wrote, "I've a good mind to
make our ninth-grade son
give his laptop back to Dr.
Norris." That is a very good
idea, based on my experience
tutoring eighth-grade math
students.
Has Mr. Clarke observed
today's students counting on
their fingers to determine
seven times nine? I have,
more than once. Their teach-
er told me they do not require
learning multiplication tables
because students use calcula-
tors.
Has Mr. Clarke witnessed
students too tired to pay
attention in school? More
than one yawning student
explained he was up surfing
and playing games on the
computer in his bedroom.
His parents thought he was
sleeping.
We give a student's brain a
crutch by providing calcula-
tors and computers. Colleges
now require remedial courses
for entering freshmen be-
cause high schools are gradu-
ating students not properly
educated. Taxpayers paid for
a good education, then pay
again for remedial courses.
Hopefully, FCAT will assure all
graduates are properly edu-
cated.
If schools would thorough-
ly teach the basics, and the
skills of how to learn and
gather knowledge, more of
today's students would have
the brain skills needed for the
higher paying jobs of tomor-
row.
Superintendent Norris
tells us more money for all
teachers and new programs
will make our kids better edu-


cated and smarter. Studies do
not show any correlation
between increased spending
and improved student perfor-
mance. Better classroom
teachers do that.
Hire the best available by
increasing starting salaries for
new teachers, and weed out
poor performing teachers,
just like a winning sports
team.

Hoping to get
carried away
Editor:
It seems to me that our
garbage collectors are ex-
tremely picky about the trash
that they deem worthy of lift-
ing into their trucks. The cans
are too big, too heavy or the
yard waste isn't tied in neat
bundles.
I try to do my best each
week, but every now and
then, I fail the test. This week
they wouldn't take a twin
mattress. Seemed reasonable
to me, but I guess there must
be some reason they wouldn't
take it.
Come on guys, give us a
break, and take our trash
away.

his wife, Coretta Scott King?

By's Crack: (Happy
birthday to my dad,
Byron, the author of By's
Crack; he is 96 years
young): If taxes go any
higher, you'll have to work
like a dog to live like one.



It was a tough week on my
diet. We had bridge on
Saturday night and a Super
Bowl party on Sunday, and
consequently I fell off the
wagon a little.
I resisted the cookies at the
Super Bowl party, which I was
proud I could do. I even
passed on my birthday cake.
Despite all the obstacles, I still
lost two more pounds, so I'm
down 10.
At the Y, I am taking
Katrina's spin class Monday


and Friday, which is a real
calorie burner, and I have just
joined Pam's Jazzercize class
Tuesday and Thursday, which
is a great full-body workout.
It certainly has shown how
uncoordinated I am. It is
mostly an aerobics class with
a little kick boxing and ab
workouts thrown in. I have
found it great to increase flex-
ibility and coordination. They
start at 5:15 for spin and 5:30
for Pam's class. Yes, that is in
the morning.
The Y weight-loss program
has a trivia question about fit-
ness and weight loss each
week. This week it was about
how many calories are in fat,
protein and carbohydrates.
One gram of fat has 9,
while protein and carbohy-
drates have 4 each. Liquor has
7 per gram.
Giving up beer has been
hard, but saves lots of calo-
ries. Maybe I'll get rid of that
beer gut.

The city is planning a nice

surrounded by areas in the

they can help each other with

Since the two are having

each entity needs a person in

pect advising her she had won
more money. The suspect
requested the victim send


more money via Western
Union. The victim refused and
has not had any further con-
tact with the suspects. The
victim's total loss is $4,450 as a


result of the phone scam.
If you have been the victim
of a scam, call the Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office at 861-

Venice High wrestling
coach Dan Kelly wanted more
than three of his Indians. qual-
ifying for the state tourna-
ment.
While that didn't happen at
Saturday's Class 2A Region 3
Tournament in Punta Gorda,
tempering some of the disap-
pointment is that fact that the
three he will be sending to
state all rate as region cham-
pions.
Brett Nelson, Jeremie Cook,
and Anthony Saputo all came
through in style under the
spotlight at the crowded
Charlotte High gym.
"The three kids who made
it are the three who deserved
it the most," Kelly said. "The
kids who all lost in the last
round didn't wrestle over the
summer. Hopefully, they'll
use it as a catalyst."
Only Cape Coral had more
individual champions, as the
Seahawks had four. Team
champion Manatee only had
two champs, but the Hur-
ricanes had two seconds.
three thirds and a fourth.
Venice was blanked in sec-
ond through fourth. Those
also qualify for states, which
run Thursday through
Sunday at The Lakeland
Center.
Nelson improved his per-
sonal mark to 46-1 by deci-
sioning NManatee's Brendan
Flanagan, 8-4. in the 160 final.
It was die third time Nelson
has shaded Flanagan (32-10)
in the past month.
"He gave me some open-
ings and I took advantage,"


Nelson said. "I think I was
more offensive-minded this
time."
Cook, the defending state
171 champ, upped his 189-
pound mark to 48-0 with a 13-
2 decision over Dustin
Zitzmann of Dixie Hollins
(23-3). Earlier in the day, a
semifinal battle of unbeatens
between Cook and Bedan
Laurent of Cypress Lake fiz-
zled when the latter went out
with a knee injury 20 seconds
into thp match.
"I was disappointed," Cook
said. "He was unbeaten. I did-
n't do what I wanted on top in
my final."
Saputo (44-5) claimed the
third Venice gold of the night
at heavyweight. He had to
weed through some tough
customers. In the semis, he
avenged an earlier loss to St.
Pete-Northeast's Dylan
Mundella with a 5-1 decision.
Mundella came into the bout
at 38-1. In the final, Saputo
knocked 28-0 Joe Johnson of
Mariner from the unbeaten
ranks with a 7-2 decision.
Venice had three fall in the
semifinals Wade Consul at
119, Tyler Spann at 130 and
Ion Hodge at 145.
Andrew Lopez 1103), Bill
Fields (112). T.J. Goodin (135),
Will Nlolthop 1140) and Jim
Foubister (215.1 lost in earlier
rounds.
NManatee had 175 team
points. Cape Coral was sec-
ond with 128. Charlotre was
third at 122.
Mariner was fourth at 107,
while Venice was right behind
at 106.
There were 28 schools rep-
resented at Region 3.

Having already hammered
Cardinal Mooney in a presea-
son game, what other result
could one expect when
Venice High's softballers met
the Lady Cougars on opening
night?
It was more of the same
and then some Friday night,
as Venice rolled to a 23-1 vic-
tory over visiting Mooney in a
game that only went the five
inning mercy distance.
Venice scored an incredi-
ble 18 runs in the second
inning to turn it into a laugh-
er. The Lady Indians had nine
hits in the frame and they bat-
ted around two and a half
times.
It was a combination of
walks and hits. Mooney, left
without a front line pitcher
when Krista Schuett was
injured in an off-season
automobile accident, had
trouble finding the plate all
game.
Walks loaded up the bases.
Molly Brandow worked a
walk to force in the first run.
Nicole Clark, Felicia Taylor
and Brittany Hipple had con-
secutive RBI singles to make

it 4-0. Maureen Sandidge sin-
gled off the third baseman's
glove to plate two more.
Megan Watson's single made
it 7-0. Heather Laird walked
to reload the sacks. Heather
Boyts then drew a pass to
force in a run. Kristen Bailey
had a RBI single to make it 9-
0. Brandow was hit by a pitch
to bring in another.
An error on a grounder by
Clark made it 11-0. Taylor sin-
gled to make it 12-0. Watson
walked to make it 13-0. Laird


walked to make it 14-0.
An error on the first base-
man allowed two more to
score. Bailey ripped a RBI
double to make it 17-0.
Brandow had a single to make
it 18-0.
What an inning.
Winning pitcher Laird
allowed three hits in five
innings. The senior pitched
out of a bases-loaded, no
outs jam in the top of the
second.
Former head coach Amy


Kristen Bailey takes a cut in the second inning. Bailey had two
hits in an 18-run second inning.


Kanter threw out the first
pitch and cheered from the
dugout. The new VHS varsity
softball coaches are Larry
Sandburg and Pete Domb-


roski.
Things will get tougher
Tuesday when Riverview

North Port lot sale yields


BY BOB REDDY
STAFFWRITER

The numbers are so en-
couraging that there probably
won't be a need for a live auc-
tion for the North Port tax-
delinquent lot sale.
Sarasota County commis-
sioners received a formal
update Wednesday from Lar-
ry Arnold, a county commu-
nity development manager,
and learned that more than
98 percent of the lots or
1,461 of a possible 1,485 lots
--- that have been up for
online auction have been sold
and they have generated
more than $45 million in rev-
enues.
The last session of the auc-
tibn starts Friday with 448 lots
up'for sale. That auction con-
tinues until Feb. 21 and
includes the 24 lots that have
riot been sold in the first two


auction is scheduled to be
held 7 p.m. Feb. 28 at North
Port High School.
The entire auction is ex-
pected to generate more than
$60 million. That total does
not include the 6 percent
buyer's premium the winning
bidders must pay, which is.
typical of auctions.
That translates to more
than $21 million for the coun-'
ty coffers after the county
gives $5 million to the school
district. North Port would
receive'about $32 million if
the numbers hold up..
Putting all of the lots back
into the hands of owners also
means a yearly property tax
revenue of about $235,440 for
the county, $281,799 for
North Port and $452,086 for
the school district, Arnold
said.
"These are tangible re-
sults," he said.


sessions.
Arnold said eight lots have Asleep

"We are not sure if there in the next several years. The
will be enough lots left for a county and city decided to set
live auction," he said. That aside 50 lots from the auction


to be used for potential foot-
prints for the schools.
Sarasota County plans to
use its share of the money to
boost the community land
trust program and other pro-
jects.
The city of North Port has
made no formal announce-
ments for the use of its share,
but it could be used for infra-
structure improvements, or
anything else it wants.
All of the lots were put on
the tax delinquent rolls be-
tween 1999 and 2004, Arnold
said.
It can take as long as seven
to nine years, to get to the
point of selling them.
"It is a very long process,"
Arnold said.
They were available for
anyone to buy at the time for
less than $1,000 each. The
average price for the lots in
the first session was $29,750
and $34,200 for the second
session. .
Commissioner Ion Thax-
ton called the original sales
price incredible.
"Less than $1,000 a piece,"
Thaxton remarked. "Talk


about asleep at the wheel.
Wow."
Diminished value
There are still 223 lots
deemed environmentally
sensitive that were not put up
for auction to avoid any prob-
lems, Arnold said. Six of those
lots were pulled out of the
third' session to avoid any
conflict.
"We're being very careful
with what we put out there,".
Arnold said.
County and city officials
are meeting with officials with
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
next week to see if any of
those could be available in
time for a live auction or for a
possible fourth online session
in March or early April.
"They would be specially
designated so people would
know what they are getting,"
Arnold said of the lots, which
can have a diminished value
because of the burdensome
environmental ,permitting
process.
There have been some
concerns about such lots,

Affordable housing



partnership proposes homes


WWW.VENICEGONDOLIER.COM SUNDAY, FEB. 12, 200(


Sarasota County is applying for city permission to
construct homes on government zoned land it


owns in the city of Saraso

BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS
One of the initial afford-
able housing partnership col-
laborations between Sarasota
County and the fledgling
Community Housing Trust of
Sarasota could produce 20-30
new homes along a two-block
stretch of Hatton Street in the
city of Sarasota.
The county commission
was expected to forward a
"major conditional use" per-
mit application that would
allow residential construction
on government-owned land
in the city.
"These houses would be
affordable for families who
earn less than 120 percent of
median area income," said
Wendy Thomas,. a county
community housing manag-
er. "We've hired Sarasota ar-
chitect Brad Gaubatz to study
the area and see what can be
done."
In 2003, the county pur-
chased a strip of land that
runs between School Avenue
and Euclid Street along the
north edge of several public
school facilities. The parcel
serves as a stormwater over-
flow area and provides auxil-
iary parking for Sarasota High
School students.
Its location near Sarasota
Memorial Hospital and sever-
al public schools could attract
employees who fit the afford-


ta.

able housing income profile
and want to live near their
places of employment. The
new homes would reportedly
cost no more than $246,000.
"It has yet to be deter-
mined who would pay to
build these houses," Thomas
said. "We do not anticipate
the county would. Perhaps
the Community Housing
Trust could hire a developer
to build them for a fee, and
the trust could then arrange
to rent or sell them."
If the county's application
is processed by the city offi-
cials and approved by the city
commission before the end of
June, houses could be under
construction late this year.
"Otherwise it will probably
be sometime next year,"
Thomas said. '"That's proba-
bly more realistic."
Prices
The Community Housing
Trust has announced it wants
to build 3,000 affordable
homes over the next 10 years
for working class families
who annually earn $55,900 or
less. It has received $250,000
for start-up costs from the
county, with the expectation
of more if it meets goals.
Its initial objective is to
have 75 new homes ready for
occupancy this year, 125
more in 2007, and progres-
sively increase the yearly
number up to 500 new homes


in 2015 for a total of 3,000. All
will be constructed on land
that is leased to home buyers.
Trust documents indicate
$200,000 houses will be made
available to families who earn
between 85 and 95 percent of
median income; $165,000
townhouses for those bet-
ween 70 and 85 percent; and
$115,000 condominiums for
those between 50 and 75 per-
cent.
The trust was organized as
a nonprofit corporation un-
der Chapter 501(c)(3) of the
Internal Revenue Service
Codes by Sarasota County
Openly Plans for Excellence
at the county commission's
request, and the urging of
local business leaders.

MAP COURTESY OF SARASOTA COUNTY,
The first project for the Community Housing Trust of Sarasota
could be houses, townhouses and condominiums on a parcel
of land in the city of Sarasota.


In 2001, SCOPE waded into
the affordable housing debate
when it voted to study the dif-
ficult issue and elevate the
subject to a high community


priority. The recent spike in-
real estate costs has made i1t
impossible for many workers!

own homes.

ever faced.
Eric taught in the 70s.
Everyone at Booker High is
lucky to have this talented

how long it will take before
Eric is involved with the

BY JOEL FOSTER.
STAFF WRITER

Because Valentine's Day is
this week, this is a love story.
Forty-one years of mar-
riage is a testament to that.
But this love story goes
beyond the classic boy meets
girl scenario.
This love story is about
inner strength, devotion and
the courage to face a suppos-
edly indefatigable enemy and
face it together, flinching at
times but never backing
down, meeting life head on.
This love story is about two
people uniting in such a man-
ner as to have one soul, and
from their trials, giving inspi-
ration to others .
Setting the table
John (Jack) and Jackie Rep-
pard, 21-year residents of No-
komis, are in Ripley's Believe
It Or Not.
Believe it.
They have been investigat-
ed and verified, stamped with
the Ripley seal of approval in
2004 for their list of same-
nesses that gives one pause
and was a fitting beginning to
what was to follow.
Jackie Payne (now Rep-
pard), the daughter of David
and Margie Payne of Morris
Run, Pa., was born in Bloss-
burg, Pa., at the state hospital.
Doctor Davis delivered the lit-
dle girl just before midnight,
May 28, 1943.
"If you ever watched the
movie, 'Coal Miner's Daught-
er,' at the beginning where it
shows the town, that was
Morris Run," Payne Reppard
said recently.
Morris Run was hard coun-
try, hand-to-mouth country,
where her dad was one of the
last of the pick-and-shovel
coal miners. He spent 40 years
in shaft mining and foundry
work.
Morris Run was mountain
country and isolated.
That same night, May 29,
1943, the first of that string of
samenesses occurred at the
state hospital in Blossburg.
Born at nearly the same
time in the same hospital and
delivered by the same Dr.
Davis, was a baby boy named
Jack Reppard. Jack was the
son of William and: Berea
Reppard of Covington, Pa.
The births of Jackie and
Jack occurred in the same
room. By the time the two
babies had been named, their
were five instances of same-
ness birth hospital, birth
room, birth doctor, birth time
and given names.
"We were farmers," Jack
said. "She was on the moun-
tain and I was in the valley."
In that section of Pennsyl-
vania, the terrain is an ancient
tectonic upheaval. Gorges cut
through green hillsides like,
felt wedges. Hillsides immedi-
ately descend at a dizzying
angle to riparian areas in a bas
relief pattern of worn down
spines of reclining dinosaurs.
It is not the conventional
image of pastoral hills.
It is a country that spawns
an attitude in accepting chal-
lenge. It is a country 'of grit, of
reliance on self.
The slowly grinding wheels
of state educational decisions
set the girl from the moun-
tainous mining area of Morris
Run and the boy from the
farmland of lowland Cov-
ington into the same school
via a district decision to con-
solidate.
Jack and Jackie, the two
babies born in the same room
of the same hospital on the


At home in Nokomis, now married 41 years, the Reppards can reflect on the many changes that have occurred in the 21 years
they have resided at Sunaire Terrace, Nokomis. Through many severe challenges, they have remained devoted and optimistic.


same night and delivered by
the same doctor, finally met.,
They were freshmen in the
newly consolidated high
school.
"We didn't date until we
were seniors," Jackie said,
remembering their final high
school year in a graduating
class of 55, 14 of whom were
related.
Neither had felt any of the
"maybe, if, could be" emo-
tions until Jack joined the U.S.
Army and eventually shipped
out to Germany as part of his
three-year commitment -in
1962, his Elvis years.
A fan of Elvis Presley since
his high school days, Jack dis-
covered a crazy bond in his
deployment.
He and Presley were both
in the 3rd-Army Division.
"He was a tank driver," Jack
said. "I was a mechanic. I did-
n't get to meet him or any-
thing like that, but I did see
Priscilla (Presley). They (Ger-
mans) were crazy about Elvis.
It was like they worshipped
the guy."
When Jack left the Army
and Jackie was involved with


nursing, they faced the reality
of choice being together
with some challenges, or
being apart with the same
challenges and the added fac-
tor of not wanting to be apart.
Jack proposed on his home
turf of Covington, but neither
professes to remember what
the ceremony included.
"It was nothing romantic,"
Jackie said.
He was on leave from the
Army and she had a weekend
free from nursing.
Voila!
The mercury registered a
minus 20 on Nov. 21, 1964,
their wedding day in Cov-
ington, Pa., and there was not
one man in the wedding party
who was employed.
All the men were recently
released from military ser-
vice. Only the women had
jobs.
But not a one was lacking
in the warmth of celebration
for what was to become a
long and happy marriage.
The couple were wed in an
old-style Polish ceremony

hypnotized!


Most everyone can enjoy the benefits of hypnosis
has to offer. Yes,-you can be hypnotized. Hypnosis is
safe, natural and feels like being awake during a
pleasant dream.
Yes, Yes, Yes, it works. I'm living proof that
hypnosis weight loss programs get real and genuine
results. It will work for you.

AUTOMATIC WEIGHT LOSS
Immediately after my first hypnosis session I
experienced a gradual change. I stopped thinking of
food all the time. My craving for donuts, cakes and
pies disappeared. My food choices changed. I found
myself eating less but feeling content, full and
satisfied.
This wasn't something I had to work at. I never
oncefelt deprived. A friend recently asked me,
"Was it easy staying motivated?" I never even
considered it. All 35 pounds of my weight loss was
automatic. You don't even think about it. Hypnosis
wiped my poor eating habits away like a damp cloth
wipes away chalk on a chalkboard. A gentle stroke
and the problem was gone. That easy. Call today,

ABSOLUTE SOLUTION
This program have me the absolute weight loss
solution I have been searching for. I now eat what I-
want and HAVEN'T GAINED AN OUNCE SINCE.
HYPNOSIS.


I'm free of the stigma, pain, suffering and
embarrassment that I endured. Now you can be free,
too. Call 625-6455.

POWERFUL RESULTS
My results were so powerful that when my
husband and I celebrated Thanksgiving, I ate healthy
food and lost weight. Can you imagine? All that
food. Available all day, and still lost weight. Now
that's an acid test if there ever was one.

CONCRETE PROOF
The use of hypnosis is sweeping the nation. Valid,
medically approved, clinically tested and proven
effective. Here are the facts.
No dangers have ever been linked to hypnosis.
FBI, armed forces, police, businesses and
professional sports teams use hypnosis.

DREAMS COME TRUE
I started with SunCoast Hypnosis the last week of April 2004 and since February
2005, I have taken off, and kept off 60 pounds. Even during the many hurricanes of
2004 that caused stress, I found myself not binge eating, but doing more relaxing
things, like reading and painting my condo. My energy level, as well as my self-
esteem has risen greatly. The great comments from friends that I have known for
years, but haven't seen in a while, also is evidence that this is a very successful
program.
Luke, Fort Myers
I have'lost 41 pounds as of today! I have never felt deprived and I do not want the
things I used to eat. I did not even want a piece of my own birthday cake! This
Works!
Sue Anne Mandella, Lehigh
I feel that this program has helped me to lose 25 lbs. and gain confidence in myself,
and know that I can do it!
I Maureen, North Port


Another Story of HOPE
Found!
I am Michelle Baker, a successful hypnosis client!
I gave up hope...
I had accepted that I would be fat for the rest of my
life...
Does this sound familiar; do you also have these thoughts?
Let me tell you my story... I gained a lot of weight, for years I could
easily lose weight, just "make up my, mind", do some diet, starve or
whatever, and I could easily lose twenty or maybe even thirty pounds.
But when I stopped the diet, the weight would come back and then
more.
My friends were .very supportive, my husband and children always
loved me "just the way I am", so gradually, I didn't even notice, I got
used to the fact that I was "large", but I was "happy", always laughing, I
was, told to accept myself like I am, I am a valuable person, it doesn't
matter how big I am. That wasn't important. I suppressed the fact that I
.couldn't wear regular clothes, I was always covering up something, I
couldn't walk very well anymore.
The day came that I really couldn't even imagine being successful on
any diet, so why even try. I knew I would always fail, and besides I am a
valuable person, just the way I am.
One day I saw an ad, similar to this one. Someone was telling my'
story, she had "given up", but she knew she. had to lose weight, for
health reasons, and she couldn't keep up with her grandkids...
She "tried" hypnosis, and it changed her life. I decided to try one last
thing. I didn't know what hypnosis is. I couldn't really understand what
it means to "be in control". I just knew I had no "willpower", and I
didn't need it, since I was always going to be fat.
But I went to the screening and learned how the brain processes
information. I learned that it is possible to reprogram what's going on in
my head during the day, every second. I learned that I could feel better
about myself, when I was making good choices, living my own life, not
on a diet, but feeling good about myself AND losing weight. Not only
did my self-esteem improve, I became more relaxed, ate less because of
stress or emotional problems. I slept better, and instead of accepting that
? I would always be "fat", .1 learned that I did not feel deprived. Most
important, I knew this was my new life. I didn't need to be fat, and I
didn't need all the supplements, the food plans, the weighing in, the
shakes, all the things those programs sell.
fr If I could tell you only one thing today, it would be learn hypnosis,
it WILL change your life. The change in 'my life was so dramatic, all my
family and friends couldn't believe the new me. I started researching
what this is "hypnosis", why had I not heard about this before?
Not only did I know that hypnosis had changed my life, I learned
that hypnosis can help all adults, and even more so children. It is our
responsibility not just to "give up", and accept that we "have" to be fat,
we owe it to our children and grandkids to not let them become victims of
the most threatening health crisis there is in our country today.
If you ever wondered what it could be like to dream again, to have
hope again learn about hypnosis, call today! I have kept the weight off
for over 12 years, it is now natural and easy to stay thin!

i have thoroughly gotten over all urges to have SWEETS! When I go to Wal-Mart I
von't even look towards the bakery or candy aisles (they used to be my favorites).
i also want to do more exercises and I feel better about my appearance. This is
great!!

I had been dealing with weight issues most of my adult life. I noticed my brother
having dropped weight (60 pounds) and asked him what was he doing? He said he
vas attending-Suncoast Hypnosis, so I followed and I am dropping inches. Now I
will use to maintain my weight!
Barbara Jackson, Ft. Myers
I feel really great! Ifiave lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks. I have not had ice cream for 2
weeks. It takes less less to fill me up. I am sleeping much better!
Linds, Cape Coral
I attended a birthday party for my boss catered by Honey Baked Ham, and of
course they had cookies and birthday cake too. I sat and watched everyone eat the
sweets and had no desire to even taste a thing! I lost 15 pounds in my first month
of trying hypnosis. This is the easiest weight loss I've.ever done.
Sue Anne Mondella, Lehigh
I have lost 10 pounds.and 4 inches in less than 4 weeks! A positive experience.

By Vicki Connell,

Certified Audiologist
Q. My ears itch when I wear
my hearing aids. Otherwise,
the hearing aids are perfect.
What can I do?
A. Though most people fit with
hearing aids do not experience
any reaction, there is a small
possibility that your ears may
be allergic to the actual shell
material itself. In this case, the
instrument can be recased with
another polymer material
which is hypo allergic. There is
a possibility that your ears are
just not accustomed to the
presence of an object and it
may be helpful to ,use a liquid
lubricant on the aids before
inserting them. Another
important consideration is that
you may have an underlying
infection that needs to be
treated medically. That is why
the first step is to contact the
Audiologist at Woodmere
Hearing & Balance Centers,
Inc. at '492-4327 to discuss
this issue.

JIM MILLER
SAVVY SENIOR


Dear Savvy Senior,
What are the 2005 limits
where seniors don't have to file
a federal tax return? I manage a
senior citizens center and many
of our retirees live on very limit-
ed incomes and probably don't
need to bother. Also, can you
tell me if Social Security benefits
are taxable? I start receiving
benefits next year and have
heard several conflicting things.
- Taxing Tina
Dear Tina,
Depending on your
income level, your Social
Security benefits may be tax-
able. To figure this put, add
up all of your taxable income,
plus any tax exempt interest
you earned, plus half of your
Social Security. If these com-
bined amounts are under the
required limits ($25,000 if you
file as a single, and $32,000 if
you file a joint return), then
you owe no tax on your
Social Security. But, if the
total is greater, you will. For
more information, call the
IRS at (800) 829-3676 and ask
for their free publication 554
- Older Americans' Tax
Guide.
Filing requirements
SMany older Americans,
don't have to file income tax
returns because their gross '
income is under the filing
requirements. Gross income
includes all the income you
received that is not exempt
from tax, not including Social
Security benefits, unless you
are married and filing sepa-
rately. Here are the 2005
requirements that will help
you determine whether or
not you need to file a federal

tax return.
Filing as a single: If your

than $8,200 ($9,450 if age 65
or older), you don't have to
file.
Filing as head of house-
hold: If your gross income
was less than $10,500
($11,750 if age 65 or older),
you don't have to file.
Filing married or jointly:
You don't have to file if your
gross income was less than
$16,400. Add $1,000 for each
spouse age 65 or over.
* Married filing separately: At
any age, you must file if your
income was at least $3,200.
* Filing as a qualifying
widow(er) with a dependent
child: If your gross income
was less than $13,200
($14,200 if age 65 or older),

Savvy notes
The IRS has rules and
exceptions for almost every
circumstance, so be sure you
check with a tax preparer to
be sure you're doing what
you're required to do. Also,
for state income tax require-
ments check with your state
tax agency. For links to state
and local tax agencies see

VIRGINIA DEUPREE
GUEST COLUMNIST


Try to imagine sitting in the
driver's seat of a motor home,
higher than the cars around
you. Imagine that you are sit-
ting on top of the world as you
descend to beautiful San
Francisco. That is one de-
scription my friend Charlotte
gives me of her love of driving
a motor home.
I have been in motor
homes but have never ridden
in one. I always envied those
who were fortunate enough
to see the world through that
experience.
My husband had many tal-
ents but being mechanical
was not one of them. Backing
out of parking places he was
sometimes hesitant about
Which way to turn the wheel.


.the equity in your home?


Charlotte loves to drive a
motor home, the bigger the
better. She said she might
even like to drive a semi. I
dunno!
How in the world do they
maneuver those big jobbies?
They sometimes pull a tow-
able, otherwise known as a
car, behind them. Down steep
hills and up high mountains
and around sharp curves into
a gas station to a gas pump.
How in the devil do they park
them? I dunno! I guess it's sec-
ond nature to some people.
Most of the people I know
seem to have motor homes
because they own a pet and
love to have their pets with
them. Charlotte always has
Maxi, her beloved poodle
with her. When they stop at
campgrounds, she finds their
pets help them to make
friends with so many fasci-
nating people. Last year
Charlotte even drove to
Alaska.
There are "no uninterest-


ing places in America" she
enthuses but some of her
favorite places are Jackson
Hole, Wyo., and some of the
coastal areas in the Carolinas.
Judy and Doug Johnson
say when you camp you meet
friendly people made easier
by having a pet.
When they joined the
Motor Coach Association,
they found that there were
three classes of motor homes:
Class A, the big one about 30
to 40 feet long; Class B is like a
van, and Class C is like a truck
cab with a bed above the cab.
Judy says you have every-
thing you need to travel
around the country. Your own
bed, your own everything.
Most even have a satellite
dish on top so you don't have
to rough it too much. They
have a generator so you can
do what they call dry camp-
ing. You can live without
power, you can have water on

Senior transportation dependency one of today major issues


KEITH BACKHAUS
GUEST COLUMNIST


With limited financial re-
sources and more knowledge,
public policy is more and
more focused on enabling our
older adults to stay in their
homes as long as possible.
That is the mission of Friend-
ship At Home. "Senior Friend-
ly Transportation" is increas-


ingly identified as one of the
major problems and service
needs of seniors, according to
the Beverly Foundation.
Our present alternative
transportation is unable to
meet the requirements of
"Senior Friendly Transpor-
tation." The United States is
expected to have 20 percent
of our population 65 years
and older by 2030. Florida has
already surpassed that num-
ber and we know our county
has a few more. The 85-and-
older age group is the fastest
growing segment of Sarasota
County's population. As the
oldest of the older adults they
face even more transporta-
tion challenges. Our needs
have exceeded our present re-
sources, while the need for
alternatives increases daily


for our residents. According
to an article published in the
American Journal of Public
Health men will experience
seven years of transportation
dependency and women 10!
At some point, our older
adults must give up their car
keys and stop driving. Many
continue to drive because
they find no available alterna-
tives. We all face that possibil-
ity some day. Driver fatality
rates start increasing around
age 70 (comparable to a 19-
year-old). Can these deaths
be traced to the absence of
alternative transportation? It
seems so.
Like you and me, most
Americans see. the ability to
jump into our cars as the key
to independence and dignity.
One of our older adults com-


pared giving up her driver
license to the death of her
spouse.
One solution presently
used to meet demand by our
local alternative transporta-
tion systems is to limit trips to
medical care and food shop-
ping. When you talk to our
older adults they tell you
there is more to life than the
doctor and drug store. We
know that getting out to
social events, hairdresser,
educational programs or vol-
unteering is essential to a life
of quality. Without socializa-
tion we just dry up.
We need to. come up with
new and better options of
alternative transportation.
Remember, your kids are not'
-here to drive you, the neigh-
bors are getting older too or


may work all day, and it is bet-
ter to start finding solutions
now than waiting to call
Senior Friendship Centers on
the day you need a ride.
Like our Friendship At
Home/Faith in Action pro-
gram, I am convinced the
.solution is within our local
community. We need to come
together to expand on the
present volunteer driver pro-
grams. Many volunteer driver
programs are a small part of
faith groups, service organi-
zations and agencies, but
they are not all working to-
gether. Often this is because,
like ours, it is overwhelmed
with the requests received
from their own clients. But
what synergism could we
gain if we worked together?
The potential benefits are


great:
Our older adults can stop
driving when they need to.
Volunteers gain great
benefit by their contribution.
)Older adults can main-
tain a quality life style.
Develop Senior Friendly
transportation programs.
Hand-to-hand type ser-
vice.
Build community in-
volvement.
Less accident potential.
Do we wait? I recommend
we come together as a com-
munity to address "senior
transportation dependency" in
a senior friendly manner now!

The Johnsons said they
have quite a storage unit
underneath called a base-
ment.
Judy has written these
notes for me and also adds
that she has seen a slogan on
one brand of motor home
saying "Roughing it
Smoothly." Sometimes the car
they pull behind is painted to
match the motor home.
Judy is the daughter of my.
friend Milly Taylor of Venice,
formerly of Big Rapids, Mich.
My friend Elaine and her
husband are veteran motor
homeowners. When they'
retire they are going to pur-
chase one of the deluxe Fifth
Wheelers. I asked why they
are so-called. She explained it
to me but I'm rot sure I can
explain it. You probably know
it's the connection -between
the heavy duty pickup truck
which pulls it and the camper.
Once I was inside one of those
and was astonished at the lux-
ury complete with a king-
size bed on a dais and every-
thing you could use for con-
venience.
Like Charlotte, Elaine loves
the fact that you can see so
much panorama from the
front seat and the fact that
you are higher than the cars.
She feels much safer. Their
deluxe fifth wheel, which they
just purchased, has a 3-foot
slide-out; that means you just
push a button and the entire
living area extends 3 feet. She
and her husband also like to
explore as much of the coun-
try as they can.
Unlike Charlotte and Judy,
Elaine's pet is a cat. On a trip
last year their beloved cat got
out and disappeared some-
where in Michigan. They had
to prolong their trip for a day,
hunting everywhere. The cat
finally appeared having
exhausted his curiosity. "I
hear cats rule you, but you
can rule a dog." I dunno. With
gasoline prices being what
they are, motor homing can
be expensive. So are yachts
and boats, vacation homes,
cruises, airplane tickets.
Charlotte asked me why I
was writing about something
I know nothing about. Well, I
guess I vicariously enjoy hear-
ing about motor homes, the
mode of travel that some call
"land yachts."

where food, music and love
abounded.
"It was a small town," they
said, both smiling as they
recalled that day. "You could-
n't not invite anyone. That
would have been disastrous.
We all knew each other. The
whole town was like an
extended family."
Flash forward to Nokomis
The Germany/Elvis con-
nection would find a different
home after Jack and Jackie
pulled up stakes and moved
to Florida in 1985.
"It was difficult, moving,"
Jackie said. "We were in a
small town for a long time
with many close friends ...."
Her small smile and ex-
pressive eyes said enough.
There is nothing to add to
that emotion, as anyone who


S ENIOR333.3333 53k33I I3R


has severed ties with "back
home" can testify.
But new homes bring new
friends and new challenges.
Some challenges are
frightening, personal and life-
threatening.
Reality rears an ugly head
Silver anniversaries are
milestones marking a full
quarter of a century. How
many couples can claim such
a milestone today?
"That's when we first
learned," Jackie said. "On our
25th anniversary. Throat can-
cer. Jack had throat cancer. It
wasn't much of a celebra-
tion."
That was in 1989.
The years since then have
not been kind medically -
there was a stroke in October
1998 and a diagnosis of
prostate cancer in July 2002;
138 radiation treatments, 37


surgical operations. For the
past three years Jack has not
tasted food. He is fed liquids
through a feeding tube in his
stomach.
And that is a finality.
There will be no change,
no medical substitute.
Jack suffers the smells of a
good barbecue along the city
streets, fire-roasted chili pep-
pers, steaks on the grill on a
lazy Sunday afternoon. Going
to a Venice festival can be a
personal hell unless he -has
been liquid fed before he goes
out, as he is ravaged by the
smells of things he can no
longer eat.
"I no longer have any taste,
but I can smell just fine," he
said.
But the devastations to the
family landscape have since
become a revelation to a spir-
it of hope and fortitude
through an unlikely soul


mate, a deflector of the worry
and emotional pain, a con-
duit to some down time -
local entertainer Patti
Highland.
"She brought me out of my
depression," Jack said,
emphatically and repeatedly.
"When I got that second diag-
nosis of cancer, it was really a
hard thing to take after so
many treatments for the first
one, and then the stroke. She's
actually the one who suggest-
ed I contact Ripley's Believe It
Or Not. That sort of thing got
me going."
Patti Highland is beyond
special in the Reppard family
notebook.
Jackie's opinions of High-
land echo Jack's.
"She makes everyone feel
so welcome, no matter who
you are," Jackie said. "We got'
to know her over the years,
and she is just so friendly. She

SLIM RANDLES


When you have a teenage
relative, and the minimum
age is 21 to go to a rock con-
cert, and this relative HAS to


go to the concert or die.
Seriously.
Die.
Because life isn't worth liv-
ing if she misses it.
And, if someone under 21
can go to the concert only if
an adult accompanies them.
AND if the only adult who
will listen to the begging and
the crying and the gnashing
of teeth happens to be a semi-
old cowboy, well say hello
to Starving Chickens.
I figured, with a name like
Starving Chickens, this band
probably wouldn't have the
strength to do more than a
few numbers before breaking


for burgers and fries.
' Well, that was just about as
wrong a job of figuring as was
the rest of my figuring. You
see, I also figured the music
wouldn't really hurt your ears,
because they. would want it to
be a pleasant experience. I
also figured that with three
electric guitars on the stage at
one time, at least one guitar
player would hit the right
chords.
Furthermore, I figured
there would be some friendly
banter between the group's
leader and the audience. You
know, hi, how are you, having
fun tonight? Nowhere's one of
our most-requested tunes,
things like that.
The older I get, the
wronger I get.
Oh, the head screamer of
Starving Chickens (I call him
Tattoo Boy) came out to say
something to all the impres-


sionable minds waiting for
his droplets of wisdom,
friendship and gratitude for
coughing up admission. He
looked around and then told
them to do something an-
atomically impossible.
This brought down the
house.'
Impressionable Teen look-
ed up at me with the stars of
the universe in her eyes and
yelled, "Oh wow! Did you hear
what he SAID? And he looked
right at ME when he said it!"
Then it was two hours of
throbbing before we got bet-
ter. When it was over we asked
each other in sign language if
we had fun. One thumbs up,
one thumbs down.
Sometimes you have to
work to stay current with
what's good in life.

ON BOARD WITH WRIST GUARDS
While in-line skaters understand the protective value of kneepads, and scooter riders are beginning to realize the
benefit of wearing helmets, snowboarders are slow to embrace the need for wrist guards. The fact is, however, that
wrist injuries are the, sport's most common hazard. In addition, while one study found that wearing wrist guards
cut the risk of fracture by half, boarders are reluctant to wear wrist guards. Researchers who studied
snowboarding injuries in Colorado found that children and teens were twice as likely as adults to sustain a wrist
injury. One piece of good news is that the groups most prone to wrist fractures (beginners, women, and children)
were also the ones most likely to wear wrist guards.
Should you be wearing wrist guards during your sports activities?
Let us at TWIN PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH CENTER help you decide. We will be happy to answer
any questions you may have. Chiropractic care is an effective way to provide relief from pain associated with such
conditions as lower back pain, headaches, and many others. Call 941-412-3800 to schedule an appointment and let
us help you take control of your health. Our safe and gentle adjusting methods offer you relief from pain as well
as restored function and mobility of affected joints. We're located at 1214-C Venice Ave. East. We offer massage
therapy and have 2 licensed massage therapists on staff.
P.S. High-density thermoplastic wrist guards seem to offer the best protection for snowboarders.

Ace


Tick, tick, tick: Vet


tick season may b(


BY RACHEL ALEXANDER
STAFF WRITER


Ace is a 1-year-old cocker spaniel. His owner had hip surgery and could no longer take care
of him. Ace knows many commands and is very affectionate. He would be better in a home
without small children and would like to be the only dog or the only male dog. He is
neutered and microchipped, and ready to find a loving home. Come meet Ace at Suncoast
Humane Society, 6781 San Casa Drive in Englewood, call 474-7884, or visit humane.org.


It's tick season. Maybe
more so this year than ever.
Jonathan Gurland, a vet-
erinarian at Lemon Bay Ani-
mal Hospital in. Englewood,
said he has theories about
why residents may be seeing
more ticks on their pets this
season.
His answer: development.
"I'd say we're probably see-
ing more than last year,"
Gurland said. "There are less
woods."
Guiland warns that if you
see a tick in your house,-you
need to take quick action.
"Once you notice you have
a tick problem, it's probably
too late," he said.
Gurland said if a female
tick drops off an animal in the
house, it could lay several
thousands eggs at a time;
before you know it, they're all
over the house.
He said ticks show up more
on pets during the cold sea-
son, and they're not easy to
exterminate once they've
made your house their home.
"The thing about ticks,


they're a lot harder to get rid
of than fleas," he said.
"They're a lot harder to kill."
Gurland said the best thing
to get rid of the pests is to hire
a licensed pest control profes-
sional.
"They have the skills and
they have access to chemicals
that really kill the ticks," he
said. "They can safely apply
them."
But before-a house be-
comes infested with ticks,
Gurland suggested some
hard-hitting preventive mea-
sures.
"I would stress to use a tick
preventative and tick prod-
ucts on your dog," he said.
"Some of the products are
safe for both cats and dogs.
Some are only safe for dogs. I
guess the best thing to do is
ask your veterinarian."
Gurland recommended
that pet owners use tick and
flea medicine from a veteri-
narian; Frontline or Advantix
work well.
But he said a tick collar
works the best.
"The most effective against
ticks is Preventic collar,"
Gurland said.

Sunday, 11 a.m.-noon on
Newstalk 1220 AM. Susan
offered me the opportunity to
appear on her show to talk
about the petition.
Over the next couple
months I appeared as a guest
on the show giving updates.
During this time I started lis-


tening to the show every
week. I soon realized what a
hidden treasure the show is.
Susan and her co-host
"Sophia," the true diva doggy,
interview guests weekly, talk-
ing all about pets. Susan's,
guests include animal rescue
organizations, groomers, vet-
erinarians, pet sitters, pet
boutiques, pet communica-
tors and virtually anything
and everything pet related.
Susan recently interviewed
Bob Barker on her show, com-
mending him on his work
helping pets. The Doggy Diva
Radio Show spotlights two
adoptable pets each week as
well as a "Pet Tip of the Week"
segment.
This show is a must-hear
for all pet owners.

Positive reinforcement: training with praise and rewards


BY SHERRY WOODARD
GUEST WRITER


Positive reinforcement is
the most effective and
humane way to train animals.
The basic principle is to re-
ward a desired behavior with
something pleasant. As with
so many things, correct tim-
ing is essential. To get the ani-
mal to associate the reward
with the correct behavior, the
treat or praise must be deliv-
ered immediately. Consis-
tency is also essential -
always reward the desired
behavior and don't ever
reward undesired behavior.
The reward for good
behavior can be a favorite toy,
a game, petting, praise, or
food treats. Most dogs and
cats will work for food, so
food is the most common


training reward. Use small
pieces of soft treats that don't
require a lot of chewing, so
that you don't lose the ani-
mal's focus on the task at
hand. Offer praise and food
rewards every time 'a dog is
learning a new behavior. After
the dog responds consistently
to a command, you can
praise him without offering
any food reward.
Your dog will learn com-
mands better if everyone in
your household uses the
same commands. Some com-
monly used commands are
sit, stay, down (used when
you want your dog to lay
down), off (used when a dog
has jumped up on someone),
and come.
Keep training sessions
short you want training to
be fun for both you and your


pet. Dogs are very sensitive to
the tone of your voice, so if
you're in a bad mood, put off
the training session until you
can enjoy the time spent with
your dog.
Remember, to remain'
well-behaved, all dogs need
regular exercise and social
interaction. To keep them
socially acceptable, they need
to socialize. After some basic
training, your dog will politely
interact with most humans,
whether they are guests in
your home or strangers in the
park. If you want more infor-
mation about humane meth-
ods of training, here are a few
resources:
* "How to Teach a New Dog
Old Tricks" by Ian Dunbar
(1996). A comprehensive
workbook for the motivated
dog person, with sections on


basic off-leash obedience,
temperament modification,
behavior troubleshooting,
training theory and health
care.
* "The Whole Dog Journal" is
a monthly guide to natural
dog care and training. It con-
tains helpful information on
new training methods and
products, and accepts no
commercial advertising. Ap-
proximately 25 pages each
month.


Sherry Woodard is the dog
training and care consultant
at Best Friends Animal
Sanctuary. She develops
resources and provides con-
sulting services nationally to
help achieve Best Friends'No
More Homeless Pets mission.

Ls say


e worse .:

He said it looks like a ryli-
cal flea and tick collar, butL_
does not kill fleas. It can
used along with other tie
and flea products, however.:
To get rid of a bad case f
ticks, Gurland said, "put med-
icine on the skin topically and
also have them wear a collar,
and then have them get the
pest control guys out 'to
spray."
Veterinarians at Loving
Care Animal Hospital in
Englewood have also seen an
increase in tick cases.
"Apparently, we have seen
more than most years," said
Gretchen Perry, a veterinarian
an technician. "Our office
manager said she has a real
'problem with ticks in her
yard."
Perry agreed the best meds
icine for prevention of both
ticks and fleas is from a veteri-
narian.
Perry added she uses AiI
vantage, and suggested using
Hartz spray to kill fleas and
ticks in the home.

'LARRY ALLAN
FRESH AIR COLUMNIST
r,i
nl. A father was carrying his
young daughter on his shoul-
ders when they stepped in
beside my wife, June, in Shark
Valley in the Everglades
recently. June, the man, and
the young girl were intently
watching the colorful birds
directly in front of them,
across a small stream -
anhingas with their wings
outstretched, great blue
herons "posing" proudly, little
blue herons stabbing at the
\Water for food, and purple
gallinules walking across
floating leaves. It was an
exciting sight to see, especial-
ly for the man and his daugh-
ter, who were visiting from
Germany, where these bril-
liant species don't exist.
-The man turned to leave
after a short stop. June
stopped him, and pointed out'
the baby alligators she'd been
closely watching earlier. The
little reptiles were -directly at
their feet! "Count them," June
suggested. "One, two, three
...," there were six little ones
(no more than 18-24 inches
long) altogether, they discov-
ered. Thankfully, Mama was

nowhere in sight, because
mother alligators are known
to defend little ones this
small.
The father set his daughter
down on the ground. The .girl
was fascinated, and delighted
to see these babies right at her
father's, and now at her own,
feet.
In our visits to various
national parks throughout
the United States, June and I
have noted an extensive
number of European travel-
ers. They're fascinated by the
wildness of our national
parks, largely, we believe,
because they don't have that
kind of wilderness available
to them at home.
We met another family
there the next day on the
Anhinga Trail near the eastern
entrance to the Everglades.
They were from Hungary. We
traded group photos you
take our family with our cam-
era, we'll photograph you two
with your camera. Again, they
were just visiting on their
vacation. We saw a lot of folks
from Japan, as well.
- Our national park system
was the first one established
anywhere in the world. We've
added and added to those
first park acquisitions, Yellow-
stone and Yosemite. Unfor-
tunately, both those parks are
now suffering from air pollu-
tion- too much traffic, auto-
mobiles and off-road vehi-
cles, including snowmobiles.
Let's encourage our elected
representatives to give the
National Park Service thekind
of funding they need to pro-
tect and preserve our nation-
al parks, and the plants and
animals that live within their


U.S. national parks attract visitors from all over the world,
eager to see our native species, like this Everglades alligator.
We must ensure that the species and their habitats are pre-
served.' r


borders. If you are concerned,
as we are, have a look at
tws.org, the Web site of The
Wilderness Society.
Henry David Thoreau said
it best: "In wildness is the
preservation of the world."
But we must work to main-
tain that marvelous bit of
wildness known as the
Everglades, and all our other
magnificent national parks,


so they remain the marvelous
places to visit that they are
today.

ONE LAST WORD


"This benefit of seeing... can come only if you pause a while,
extricate yourself from the maddening mob of quick impressions
ceaselessly battering our lives, and look thoughtfully at a quiet
image... the viewer must be willing to pause, to look again, to
meditate." Dorothea Lange, Photographer (1895-1965)


Reese Balliet is dressed as a princess as she
watched one of the many shows at the Faire.


he Ringling Medieval Faire, a benefit for the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, takes place
10 a.m.-6:30 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 12, on the Sarasota Fairgrounds at 3000 Ringling Blvd. See artisans, jousting,

between FLW Outdoors and
The Bass Federation. As1 a
field promotions, coordinator

grow the company's pro staff

his teenage years, when he
joined the Capital Area Bass
Association in Lansing, Mich.
Like many anglers, he credits
the Federation with cultivat-
ing his lifelong passion for
the sport.

WHY?
Why do so many Realtors
affiliate with ERA Advan-
tage Realty? Could it be
the integrated marketing
they offer the Sales Force
at no cost? Maybe the
technology tools they pro-
vide their Sales Profes-
sionals? Or perhaps it's
just a Great Professional
Environment. Whatever
the case, you can experi-
ence the same benefits.
