Questions regarding
referendum funds are
some of the toughest
Superintendent Gary
Norris fields when he's
out stumping.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Platitudes surrounding ref-
erendum 2006 are on the rise
with only weeks remaining
before the March 14 vote on
continuing the 1-mill educa-
tion tax. So, what exactly is
does a 1-mill increase mean?
Depends on who you talk to
... and, of course, the value of
your home and how it's calcu-
lated.
Sarasota County School
District officials will tell you
the 2006 referendum is not a
new tax, but the continuation
of a tax already in place.
Though correct, that char-
acterization doesn't sit well
with folks having a hard time
supporting the upcoming ref-
erendum. They see the refer-
endum as two separate taxes:
one that technically expires
this year, and one that would
pick up at the same rate for
four more years if approved
by voters. Call it splitting
hairs.
A "No" vote, however, low-
ers your tax bill by hundreds
of dollars. And that's not split-
ting hairs when you talk to a
typical Sarasota County
retiree on a fixed income who
pays more than $2,000 in
taxes and faces ever-increas-
ing medical costs.
And don't tell them a "Yes"
vote doesn't represent a tax
increase. While the 1-mill
education tax would remain
just that 1 mill property
values have skyrocketed in
recent years and so have the
taxes they're based on. A 1-
mill tax raises $100 per
$100,000 assessed valued on a
home.
That equals $275 for a
$300,000 home after the
$25,000 homestead exemp-
tion.

Sarasota County School Superintendent Gary Norris discusses
the upcoming March 14, 2006 referendum vote.


Homestead
Those with homestead
exemptions will see their
property tax increase no more
than 3 percent in any year,
thanks to the Save Our
Homes amendment. But new
home buyers -who don't get
homestead for a year can
get a property tax bill for
thousands more than their
sellers were paying.
Coupled with other educa-
tion and county millage, the
tax increase can be daunting
for new arrivals, including
teachers recruited to the area.
A typical Sarasota County
property owner, with a prima-
ry residence assessed at
$180,000 and no homestead
exemption could expect to
pay a total county/education
tax of $2,529.59 in 2002,
according to Sarasota County


Tax Assessor's Office. Toda)
the same home, now assessed
at $294,500, pulls in, $4,192.77
in taxes.
Education village ac-
counted for 60 percent of
taxes collected countywide
back in 2002. Today educa-
tion accounts for 55 percent.
While the education mill-
age has decreased from
8.48 in 2001-02 to 7.861 mills
in 2005-06 that isn't true for
actual tax dollars raised.
Without a homestead exemp-
tion of $25,000, the same
$180,000 home that garnered
$1,527.84 in total education
mileage back in 2002, now
pays $2,315.06 in education-
related taxes. That's $788.22
more to support education
than when voters passed the

The city manager.
expects to give city
council his
recommendations
Tuesday.

BY JJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


Venice City Council will
have its top two choices for
police chief by Tuesday, as-
suming City Manager Marty
Black can narrow the field
down by then.
In-person interviews were
completed this week of six
candidates to replace VPD
Chief Jim Hanks, who'll retire
Tuesday after 30 years on the
force.
Each candidate was given
a written take-home test spe-
cific to Venice, geared toward
measuring their response to
an emergency management
situation.
"I would be happy with five
out of the six," Black said.
"They're making it very diffi-
cult to decide."
Once the city manager
narrows the choices down to
two, Venice City Council will
interview those candidates
and make the final selection.
Black hopes to have the new
chief appointed by the end of
, March.
Deputy Police Chief Dan
McGbogan will be the interim
police chief starting March 1.
The 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 experi-
ence.
Reorganization of VPD will
be the new chief's top priority.
An independent manage-
ment audit last summer re-
vealed that officers thought
there was a lack of leadership,
documentation and organi-
zation within the depart-
ment. No employees said the
command staff is innovative
and progressive.
During a November meet-
ing, council member Rick
Tacy said the new chief has to
be able to break old habits

Reports from city and county planning
departments outline future growth in North
and East Venice.

e. ture, they might smell cows.
Venice City Council will
hear a presentation at 1:30
p.m. Tuesday from Planning
and Zoning Director Tom
Adam Sprawka Slaughter about the develop-
ment of North Venice.
Slaughter will detail how a
potential 7,000 new living

park, shopping center and 20-

Interstate 75.


Sarasota County has done
a planning report of its own,
after issuing a six-month
moratorium last October on
rezoning requests along the
East Venice Avenue corridor
between Jacaranda Boulevard
and River Road. The report
goes to Sarasota County
Planning Commission on
March 2, followed by hearings
with county commissioners
on March 21 and April 11.
Both planning studies
attempt to, answer public
concerns that neither govern-
ment agency has a clear
vision for the future look of
mostly undeveloped land.
Slaughter acknowledges
some of the criticism is war-
ranted, but not for a lack of
planning. Instead, it's com-
munication and making sure


the public is assured a plan is
in place.
Sarasota County appears
to have "no real vision or
guiding plan" for East Venice
Avenue and remains in the
early stages, according to its
report.
"The East Venice Planning
Initiative came as a result of
the Sarasota County Board of,
Commissioners' concern that
relatively small-scale and
uncoordinated development
was occurring incrementally
in the planning area, with no
real vision or guiding plan,"
the report states on page 2.
North Venice hybrid
The city's intentions for
North Venice are not readily
apparent because the proper-
ties are annexed and then
developed one at a time,
Slaughter said.
But if a person reviews
annexation agreements and
future land ttse designations,
then a new system of collec-

planners do not have a clear
vision for development of
what's mostly vacant land
along Laurel and Knights Trail
roads.

districts, industrial center and
residential neighborhoods
appears.
Slaughter said North Ven-
ice will be a combination of


the highly urbanized down-
town Venice found on the
island and suburban land-
scape found in the Capri Isles
Boulevard area.
"It will be a combination of
both," Slaughter said. "It will
have a major activity center,
but it won't compete with
downtown.... Think of it as a
hybrid."
Among the city's proudest
achievements are all of the
developer concessions inside
the pre-annexation agree-
ments. At no cost, Venice
obtained the right of way
needed to expand Laurel,
Border and Knights Trail
roads, as well as requiring
developers to build four
north-south collector roads
linking Laurel and Border.
This is in addition to coun-
ty impact fees for infrastruc-
ture and schools, and the
city's impact fee of about
$1,600 per living unit.

Dr. Fred Albee, a famous orthopedic surgeon from New
York, originally purchased the land that is Venice from
Bertha Palmer's sons with the intent of building a city. He
gave up on that idea and sold the land to the Brother-
hood of Locomotive Engineers in 1925. In the 1930s,
Albee was instrumental in pushing for Works Progress
Administration funds to build an airport in Venice.

Tropical Bob:

Hurricane free


In January 2005, Mike Berg
predicted landfall targets for
last year's hurricanes. Now we
know his accuracy proved
superb.
So Tropical Bob was de-
lighted to learn that Berg's pre-
diction for the 2006 hurricane
season gives us only a slight
chance of hurricane winds.
And no storm will strike bet-
ween Charlotte Harbor and
Tampa Bay, Berg predicts.
The upcoming season, this
hurricane forecaster writes, will
be quieter than the past two.
And the Old Farmer's Almanac
agrees with him. Like Berg, the
almanac says Florida should be
hurricane-free in 2006.
T.B. will be pleased if both
forecasts prove true.

Height Overlay District heads to council


Foggy ride


The planning commission voted against
the restriction because it's too close
to downtown area.


BY JJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Venice's first Height Over-
lay District breezed through
city council last June.
Expanding that district
along West Venice Avenue
appears to have a bit more
opposition.
Council will have its first
public hearing on extending
35-foot height restrictions, to
include the area south of
Narvaezi Street, north of Gra-
nada Avenue, east of Park
Boulevard and west of Harbor
Drive. City hall and other gov-
ernment-zoned land would
be excluded.
After a lengthy debate, the
Venice Planning Commission
voted against the measure 7-0
on Jan. 17 and suggested city
staff come up with some
other idea to alleviate resi-
dent fears that high-rise
buildings will take over Venice
island.
Larry Grimard suggested
eliminating the conditional
use process that allows prop-
erty owners to exceed heights
of 35, 45 or 55 feet to build as
tall as 105 feet.
This district has generated
more opposition than the first
one because many of the
properties are zoned as maxi-
mum density, at 18 units per-
acre. It also borders the down-
town Commercial Business
District.
Those who challenged the
proposal said the height cap
isn't about how tall buildings
are. It's really about lowering
density, raising land prices
and forcing out the last of the
workforce rental property
holdouts.
"This is RMF-4 (zoning).
This is morp den's This area,.
which is 90 percent RMF-4, is
supposed to be a denser dis-
trict," said Ray Schiller, owner
of five rental units at 505
Barcelona Ave.
"You're saying you're tak-
ing away that property right,
and I don't think that's right."
Supporters of the height
district disagreed and said the
new law would slow growth
and- protect Venice's quaint
charm.
Passage of the new height
restrictions require to read-
ings by city council
The meeting starts at 1:30


p.m. at city hall.

The complete city council
agenda can be viewed online
at venicegov.com by clicking
on the public meetings link.
Among the highlights are:
GCCFV project on Laurel
Road Jerry Sparkman of
Gulf Coast Community Foun-
dation of Venice will give a
presentation on the concept
plan to develop 146 acres.
GCCFV is. a charitable foun-
dation that purchased the
property to develop work-
force housing, and has an
annexation agreement pend-
ing with the city.
No design plans have been
submitted, but Marjorie A.
Floyd, GCCFV vice president
for marketing and communi-
cations, said in an earlier
interview that as many as
1,000 residences could be
built.
VHA redevelopment -
Venice Housing Authority
representatives will present
their plans for demolishing
and rebuilding Grove Terrace
Apartments, the only public
housing complex in South
County. VHA Executive Direc-
tor Peter Lopez abruptly left
his job Wednesday after
memos surfaced detailing
how he could use evictions to
reduce the number of poor
people living at VHA to help
developers make more
money. VHA chair Richard
Appell said Thursday that'any
redevelopment be it 72 or
144 apartments will main-
tain at least 50 units dedicat-
ed to the poor, possibly more.
The Residents Council, which
uncovered the evictions plan
by Lopez, also will speak to

each, 130 townhouse-style
villas starting in the mid-
$300s, and 223 condominium
units starting in the mid-
$300s. 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.

Introduced to the world in the spring

actually evaluate plaque in your arter-

We're proud to be one of the first
to bring this technology to South

bar in healthcare for our region. Now
we can diagnose problems earlier and
more accurately, which means treat-

new way for us to look at you. And it
will change the way you look at health-
care for good.

Project puts 77 units



near Sports Complex


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Plans for a 77-unit residen-
tial complex on South River
Road will move forward after
the Sarasota County commis-
sioners approved a rezoning
request Tuesday.
The agreement included
provisions
that 15 per-
cent of the
units be set
aside for af-
fordable --
housing. That '
means 10- '.
plus units will .-
be available
for roughly Staub
$200,000,
below the $250,000-$300,000
prices for other housing units.
; The board debated at
length about whether the 5.9-
acre site is the right place for
the project. Commissioner
Paul Mercier was the lone dis-
senter for that reason.
The rest of the board ap-
proved the rezoning applica-
tion to covert the property
from OUE-1 to RMF-3, which
would allow for the extra resi-
dential units. The developer,
Land Tech LLC, will maximize
the development potential of
the property, which allows for
13 units per acre.
All of the property sur-
rounding the project is zoned
as an industrial park or com-
mercial general.
Board members approved
the petition only after they
were able to get the developer
to agree to three new stipula-
tions that made the project
more palatable.
Stipulations
The River Pointe South
project sits just south of the
-- c"'.,. ,


entrance to the Englewood
Sports Complex and about a
mile north of Pine Street.
It will include six 12-unit.
buildings and one five-unit
building with a separate club-
house, pool and retention
pond on the center of the
property that will have a
fountain and boardwalks over
the pond.
Commissioners were first
able to get the developer to
agree to create a setback that
eventually will be given to the
county when the county wi-
dens River Road in that area.
Commissioner Shannon
Staub was initially concerned
about the future costs of buy-
ing back property the county
was making more valuable if
the rezoning petition was
approved.
Dan Bailey, representing
the developer, said there was
no problem providing the
county ownership of the land,
because the developer
already designed the property
with 42 feet of right of way
available for county use at a
later time.
Bailey also agreed to limit
the height of the project to 57
feet, 12 feet lower than the
project would have been
allowed. Each of the buildings
will have 12-foot, ground-
level parking, with three
floors or 45 feet above.
County code allows for two
levels of parking, with a maxi-
mum height of 24 feet and a
total height of 69 feet.
The last stipulation was to
set aside 15 percent of the res-
idential units for affordable
housing. This means the units
will be available to people
who earn 100 percent of the
median income through the
Community Housing Trust
and the units would remain


affordable forever.
Bailey said that would
mean those units would cost
about $200,000, versus the
expected $250,000 to
$300,000 initial costs for the
rest of the units.
The board praised this
move, which was suggested
ahead of time by County
Housing Coordinator Wendy
Thomas.
'Piecemeal zoning'
Mercier said he opposed
the development, because
there is no link to other resi-
dential units and that it does
not fit with the original plan
for the area, which was a
Village Center..
Such a zoning would limit
the residential development
in the area and encourage
commercial and light indus-
trial. The project will sit next
to, a future commerce park
location and about a half-
mile from the Paul Morris
Commerce Park.
"I don't like piecemeal zon-
ing," Mercier said. "We are
going to have to come up with
a corridor plan if we do that."
He added that he also has a
problem with cul de sacs,
which this property would
have.
Staub, who brought up the
original concern about the
right of way issues, said she
believed the project was a
good development.
"I am interested in seeing
industrial out there, but this is
a good project for that area,"
Staub said.
With the rezoning appro-
val, the developer must now
go through a planning and
development process. .Cons-
truction is not expected to
begin until late this year or
early 2007.

School officials protest


language in county comp plan


BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

Local public school offi-
cials have reported to Florida
authorities that proposed
Sarasota County comprehen-
sive plan changes could vio-
late state law by prohibiting
the construction of new
schools for a growing popula-
tion of students in rural areas
east of Interstate-75.
Feb. 7, Associate iSuper-
intendent Bob Earley wrote a
two-page letter to the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs that spells out the
school system's concerns
about "hamlets" and "vil-
lages" in the county's long-
term growth plan.
"It is the contention of the
Sarasota County School Dis-
trict that the section related to
the siting of future schools
does not comply with Florida
Statutes," Earley wrote.
He went on to describe
"new language that categori-
cally prohibits" new schools
in rural areas.
"Aside from inexplicably
granting greater latitude to
the siting of private schools
than to public ones," he
wrote, "this new language ap-
pears to be inconsistent" with
state laws that require local.
governments to "meet pro-
jected needs in coordination
with public school boards."

'Disturbing'
In 2004, the county adopt-
ed the Sarasota 2050 plan for
new "hamlets" and "villages"
east of 1-75 that are supposed
to discourage the prolifera-
tion of urban sprawl. It fol-
lowed up the exercise late last
year with a long list of updates
to its state-mandated com-
prehensive plan.
Tuesday, county commis-
sioner Nora Patterson said
she found Earley's letter to


state authorities "disturbing"
and suggested staff planners
draft a response to the state
agency that explains how
decisions about the siting of
future schools were reached.
"We can revisit this issue
through public hearings for
final adoption," County Plan-
ning Manager Anne McClung
responded. "This does not
require a specific response
now. That would be the staff's
game plan. What we send back
is what the state will act on.'"
Sooner or later, the county
will have to address the
school system's complaint
that students whose families
buy homes in new "hamlets"
and "villages" might have to
travel a minimum of 7 to 10
miles to the nearest middle
school and 12 to. 15 miles to
the nearest high school.
"We were somewhat sur-
prised by the addition of this
new restriction on public
educational facilities," Earley
wrote, "and are unaware of
any school 'in Sarasota
County whose appearance
has caused the spread of resi-
dential development, instead
of merely responding to it.".
Realization
The proposed "new restric-
tion" referred to by Earley


reads as follows: "Schools
operated by the School Board
of Sarasota County area are
allowed in any Future Land
Use designation, with the
exception, of Rural, provided
they are rezoned to the
Government Use (GU) zoning
district."
While the letter describes a
cooperative relationship bet-
ween the county and school
system when plans for "ham-
lets" and "villages" east of 1-75
were being devised, it exp-
resses frustration with pro-
hibitive language apparently
inserted without joint discus-
sions.
"The language would pro-
hibit (middle and high)
schools without the school
district initiating timely and
costly comprehensive plan
amendments," Earley wrote.
"Without these schools, stu-
dents from the developments
will need to be bused to exist-
ing schools far away."
In an effort to soften the
criticism politely and avoid
an embarrassing public
squabble with the county,
Earley concluded that school
officials believe "the proposed
language may have been
drafted without a full realiza-
tion of the adverse impacts to
the school district."

District might pay board members' Internet fees


School board members often work from home
because of cramped quarters at the Landings.


BY RACHEL BROWN HACKNEY
PELICAN PRESS

A member of the Sarasota
County Board of Education
has suggested it might be
appropriate for the district to
begin picking up the costs
incurred by board members
in obtaining and using high-
speed Internet access.
Vice chair Frank Kovach
raised the issue Feb. 14, dur-
ing the board's monthly work
session.
As board members began a
discussion of amending oper-
ating procedures, he pointed
out that, with the district
making use of electronic
meeting agendas and related
materials, "you have to have
high-speed" Internet access,
whereas in the past, dial-up
access was adequate.
"For some of us, it's really
easy" to use high-speed
access, Kovach added, as
many 'neighborhoods in the
county are
wired for that.
In other areas, .
however, it's
necessary to
purchase spe-
cial equip-
ment.
"I think it's '
something we .'M,''
ought to look Kovach
at," Kovach
said.
Board chair Carol Todd
responded that she had paid
$200 for high-speed Internet
equipment plus "I guess $25 a


month" as a service fee, "and
I'm not going to ask the board
to pay for it, because that's
just who I am."
Tools
She agreed .
with Kovach th ..
that the issue .. .
was some- '" "
thing the -
board needed j .
to consider,
for staff as
well as for the Benson
board mem-
bers themselves, because,
after the November election,
as many as four new mem-
bers could be on the board.
"Your broadband costs you
$25 a month?" board member
Laura Benson asked Todd. "I
think mine's $40."'
Todd conceded she was
unsure of the exact cost, as
she has it charged monthly to
a credit card.
"The issue is not how
much I pay," she continued.
The issue, she said, was
whether the district, as a mat-
ter of policy, should "provide
the tools that people need,
whether it's a board member
or a superintendent or high-
level staff."
Benson responded that
"there's a valid point to pro-
viding services to work out of
the home when we don't have
(separate) offices here." She
noted the board members
share an open space at The
Landings on Tamiami Trail,
with sometimes awkward


results. It is not uncommon
for a board member on a pri-
vate telephone call to have to
ask another at work next to
them to leave so they don't
violate Sunshine laws.
"If we do have to work at
home and have to have those
tools, it is not unrealistic to
expect reimbursement for
those."
The alternative, she added,
would be having access to
those tools at the administra-
tive offices, in which case the
board members would have
no reason to expect reim-
bursement.
'Space is tight'
Board members receive
salaries of $33,973 per year.
Kovach made a motion dur-
ing the board's Dec. 6 regular
meeting to raise that to
$35,537 for the next 12
months. Benson seconded
that motion,
but she and
Kovach were-
the only two .
of the five
board mem-
bers to vote in "
favor of it.
Board
member John Todd
Lewis subse-
quently made
a motion, seconded by board
member Kathy Kleinlein, to
keep the salaries at $33,973.
Kovach cast the only "no" vote
on that motion.
In addition to their sala-
ries, board members may be
reimbursed 44.5 cents per
mile for travel they do relating
to their service to the school
district, said Al Weidner,
director of the budget for the


Sarasota County School
District. They have to submit
mileage documentation to
receive that reimbursement,
Weidner added.
During the
work session,
Lewis took up
the question
of having of-
fices at the
district facili-
ties. He rec-
ommended .e
the board Kleinlein
consider that.
"To me,
that would make more
sense," he said.
When constituents call
and asked to meet with him,
he said, he has no choice but
to discuss where those meet-
ings will take place. Lewis
added it would be good for
the board members to have
set office hours at the district
facilities, even though "space
is tight."
'Unprofessional'
Board member Kathy
Kleinlein said she felt that dis-
trict staff could make room
for the board members to
have "five cubicles" at The
Landings, adding, "I'm not
asking for millions of dollars
to be spent on this."
Kleinlein said, "I think it's
unprofessional" to have to tell
people that board members
cannot meet them at the
administrative offices.
Before that discussion,
Associate Superintendent
Lori White had provided all
the board members with
copies of a document on
operating procedures com-
piled after staff had examined


policies established for other
school boards. Todd asked
each of the board members to
go through it and decide what
would be the best procedures
for the Sarasota district to
adopt.
The document deals with
issues such as the handling
of correspondence and
phone calls for board mem-
bers, as well as requests for
presentations to the board
and public participation .in
board workshops and regu-
lar meetings, along with the
decision about what equip-
ment the district should
provide the board members
in their homes.


Among the options are, a
computer and printer, a fax
machine, a four-drawer filing
cabinet and a cell phone/per-
sonal digital assistant, such as
a Blackberry.
White said she would
incorporate the board mem-
bers' suggestions into a docu-
ment to be discussed at the
next work session, scheduled
for March 14.
In response to a question
from Kleinlein, White pro-
mised to provide the board
members a compilation of all
.those recommendations by
the Friday before that session,
so they would be prepared for
the discussion.,

SARASOTA COUNTY BRIEFS


Comp plan
amendments praised
Sarasota County received
praise from the Florida De-
partment of Community Af-
fairs for its proposed Eval-
uation and Appraisal Report-
based amendments to the
county's comprehensive
plan.
"The county has done an
outstanding job transforming
the recommendations of the
EAR report into goals, objec-
tives and policies to update
the plan for the ensuring
planning period," wrote Mike
McDaniels, DCA's growth
management administrator,
in a cover letter with the
Objections, Comments and
Recommendations report.
The agency was also highly
complimentary about the


county's inclusionary policies
on affordable housing.
"This is an excellent ORC
report," said Anne McClung,
director of Planning Services
for the county. "A great deal of
work went into both-the EAR
report and the EAR-based
amendments and we can all
be proud of the final product.
The quality of our compre-
hensive plan is a reflection of
the efforts of staff, input from
the community, the work of
the planning commission
and the board of county com-
missioners."
The agency did raise three
issues of concern in the
report that the county must
address:
The location of the pilot
affordable housing overlay
district.


Expansion of the urban
service boundary along State
Road 776.
Coordination with the
school board regarding future
schools located in rural areas.
Planning Services staff will
work with DCA regarding
these three issues.
Sarasota County will act
upon the proposed amend-
ments by conducting adop-
tion-stage public hearings
before the board of county
commissioners in April.
A copy of the report will be
available online next Tuesday
at www.scgov.net/ear, or at
the county's Planning
Services office on the first
floor of the Administration
Center, 1660 Ringling Blvd.,
Sarasota, beginning Monday.
For more information, call


the Sarasota County Call
Center at 861-5000.

CHIEF from Page 1A
among the veteran police
staff and retain new officers.
Tacy linked his comments to
how many people refer to
Venice as Mayberry on the
Gulf Coast, and the police
chief as Andy Griffith.
"We're right at the cusp
where old management is so
used to doing it the Mayberry
way, they may be reluctant to
change," Tacy said.

FUTURE from PageIlA


As for land uses, the city's
future land use map keeps
industrial companies next to
1-75, has Knights Trail and
Laurel developed as a major
commercial intersection
(shopping center and movie
theater), and then gradually
steps down from high-densi-
ty residential (18 units an
acre) to single-family homes
as development moves east
toward the Myakka River.
There is no set architectur-
al district, but city planners
have been imposing appear-
ance standards from the Ve-
netian Gateway Overlay Dis-
trict. Most of the large-scale
projects are or will be zoned
as "planned developments"


that require concept plans be
approved in a public hearing
before any site plans are pre-
sented.
Slaughter will lead the pre-
sentation to council, and then
field questions.
East Venice
The report headed to
county commissioners is less
specific than the city's.
Among the county's short-
term recommendations:
Develop standards and
master planning require-
ments for the area.
Advise future residents of
the area that "some rural uses
may be present in nearby
areas, generating sounds,

sights and odors which may
not be typical of urban/sub-
urban areas." Much of Venice
Avenue east of Jacaranda
Boulevard is zoned for farm-
ing and ranch uses.
Create preservation mec-
hanisms for those who want
to maintain rural or agricul-
tural uses.
Develop a transportation
plan for access to properties
south of Venice Avenue.
Nearly all of the mid-term
and long-term recommenda-
tions are listed as community
initiatives, putting the re-
sponsibility on that of East
Venice Avenue property own-
ers to enforce rules.
Among these suggestions are:


Organize a neighborhood
code enforcement committee
to work with Sarasota Coun-
ty's code enforcement officer.
Create a neighborhood
enhancement program.
Develop a' redevelop-
ment plan for the older in-
dustrial areas along Jaca-
randa Boulevard between I-
75 andVenice Avenue.
Explore opportunities to
"exploit potential for industri-
al ecology ,on Jackson Road
and adjoining industrial uses,
including Kimal Lumber
complex," according to the
county report.

Sarasota County seeks "Green
Business" partners
When audits by Sarasota County's Solid Waste staff
showed that as much as 25 percent of the commercial
waste entering the county's landfill could be recycled, they
secured an innovative grant from the Florida Department of
Energy to change things. In February, the county launched
the Green Business Partnership, a program that encour-
ages businesses within Sarasota County to reduce waste
through resource conservation, and practice environmental
stewardship in a variety of other ways.
The Green Business Partnership is now open to all
businesses in Sarasota County that implement required .
resource conservation measures and demonstrate a culture
of environmental awareness in their business practices.'
Businesses that complete certification can save costs,
produce a healthier work environment and increase produc-
tivity. An added benefit to business owners is increased
sales. "Particularly here in Sarasota, we have a buying
public that is very environmentally aware, and they like to
patronize companies that reinforce those sustainable
values," says County Recycling Coordinator Tom Franklin.
Certified businesses will receive a Green Business
Partnership certificate and seal to display. They will also be
listed in a Green Business Partnership directory online at
the Green Business Web site, greenbusiness.scgov.net.
County staff will provide ongoing assistance throughout the
certification process. Resources to help employ environ-
mentally sound practices are also available at the Green
Business Web site.
For more information, or to request a Green Business
Partnership packet, contact the Sarasota County Call
Center at (941) 861-5000 and ask to speak with the
county's recycling coordinator.

MILLAGE from Page 1A


2002 referendum.
Taxes are less for those
with a Florida homestead
exemption. Under the same
scenario, homeowners with a
tax exemption paid $2,178.26
for their overall county tax bill
in FY02, not including special
assessment districts. Today
the same homeowner pays
$2,491.46.
Tough questions
Questions regarding mill-
age are some of the toughest
Superintendent Gary Norris
fields when he's out stumping
at local civic organizations
and town hall-style meetings.
Norris carries with him a
referendum fact sheet that
outlines what was asked for
back in 2002, how the funds
were spent and how future
funds would be used.
"I welcome the tough
questions," Norris said. '"After
all, if we can't answer the
tough questions, maybe we
shouldn't be doing this at all."
High on the list of com-
ments and questions are
those related to anticipated
amount raised under the
2002 referendum.,
Originally estimated to
bring in $100 million to sup-
plement the Sarasota County
School District operating
budget, the 2002 referendum
brought in almost $130 mil-
lion, Norris said.

The same 1-mill education
tax in 2006, if passed, is esti-
mated to raise between $215
million and $260 million.
Prior to authorizing the
referendum, school board
member Frank Kovach


1-mill (above the targeted
$100 million) would be spent
on education, implying it's
the same case today.
An attempt by Laura
Benson to put before voters a
half-mill referendum also


failed after a brief but spirited
debate.
Recent remarks this year
by school board members
have made it clear that any
funds raised over the targeted
amount through a 1-mill 2006
referendum will be spent on
education.
Permanent referendum
Is another referendum
likely in four years? That
question is harder to get a
straight answer to from most
school officials. But not
Norris. He sees the referen-
dum as a permanent fixture.
"It's clearly a permanent
thing ... unless the state
funds our per-pupil expendi-
tures better than 43rd," Norris
said, referring to Florida's
ranking among states when it
comes to, per-pupil state,
funding.
"We need to improve
teacher salaries and that's an
ongoing expense. It (the refer-
endum) won't go away unless
the state pays more."
Norris said it was quite
possible some voters thought
they heard in 2002 the refer-
endum was a one-time fix.
It has to be permanent, he
said. Otherwise, if tax dollars
drop off, then the employee
raises and programs and
smaller classes funded by
those tax dollars will have to
go away.
"We are asking people to
understand that the 1-mill is


the extra edge we need (to
produce) a better school sys-
tem," Norris said.
Just because Norris likes
the idea of a permanent 1-
mill school tax doesn't mean
he's averse to having a public
vote every four years. He wel-
comes it.
"The public should feel


good about that, knowing we
will have this discussion in
public every four years about
whether the funds were spent
wisely and what kind of pub-
lic school system they want."

Tax-break portability raises


ions


The Save Our Homes amendment has saved
many homeowners thousands in property taxes,
but it's a ticking time bomb for those looking to


relocate within the state.

BY BARRY MILLMAN
STAFF WRITER

When it comes to the pop-
ular Save Our Homes tax ben-
efit for Florida homeowners,
the one caveat has always
been: You can't take it with
you.
But voters may get the
chance to erase that caveat
this fall if any one of a half-
dozen bills proposing SOH
portability becomes law.
If you've been celebrating
as your home's value has
accelerated faster than your
tax bill and you don't want the
party to end when you buy
your next home, you're not
alone. Making the break on
your tax bill portable like a
suitcase you can take with


you when you move. is the
focus of great attention by a
number of state legislators.
Two of the front-running
bills in the stakes race to put
the portability question on
the November ballot will be
considered by one House
committee, while another
committee will hold a work-
shop that is expected to sort
out the varying approaches to
portability and their possible
impacts.
House Joint Resolution 33,
sponsored by Rep. Carl Dom-
ino, R-Palm Beach Gardens,
and House Joint Resolution
39 by Rep. Frank Farkas, R-St.
Petersburg, will both be
weighed by the House Ju-
diciary Committee.
The Finance & Tax Com-


mittee of the House Fiscal
Council will hold a property
tax workshop that will likely
take a deeper look at portabil-
ity and other tax-related
issues.
The ability to transfer the
tax protection offered by the
SOH amendment is consid-
ered to have, broad appeal
among homeowners across
the state, and more than a
half-dozen legislators in the.
House and Senate have filed
bills to help make it happen.
Windfall
But the issue raises a num-
ber of technical and philo-
sophical issues.
Under 'the provisions of
the SOH constitutional
amendment approved by
state voters more than a dec-
ade ago, the annual assess-
ment on homestead property
is limited to 3 percent or the
Consumer Price Index per-
centage, whichever is lower.
But when a homeowner


sells his home and buys
another one, the annual tax
assessment he assumes on
the new one is based on its
full purchase price.
The amendment has ful-
filled its objective to help
longtime homeowners on
fixed incomes the retirees
the amendment was primari-
ly crafted to protect from
escalating taxes that might
force them to move from the
last home they ever wanted to
own.
It has also resulted in a
lucrative potential windfall
for many Florida homeown-
ers by restraining the tax bur-
den on their homestead
properties as real estate val-
ues have rocketed to all-time
highs in recent years.
.However, as the state's
population has ballooned
over the past decade with
people who are richer and
more diverse, the number of
residents who wish to move
from place to place for eco-


.nomic or quality-of-life rea-
sons has increased.
The tax bite they feel when
they do move has sharpened
appreciably along with the
cost of real estate to the
point that many wishing to
move now feel trapped in
their own homes, unable to
afford the higher price tag on
a similar home elsewhere in
the state, along with the high-
er annual tax bill that comes
with it.
Hard to tell
Many believe portability-
the ability to literally apply
thd benefit from one home to
another is the answer to
the problem.
But for the state's county
property appraisers, the
implementation of the porta-
bility concept raises more
questions than answers.
"The bills approach imple-
mentation in different ways,
or they're ambiguous on cer-
tain aspects of it," said Char-


lotte County's Frank Desguin4
"Some would allow portabili-'
ty across county lines, which I
have a problem with. Some of
the bills would leave it up t&
each county to decide if they
want portability, which I hav6
a problem with.
"Some sayyou could retail
the SOH protection if you buy
or build a new home within a
year, and others say tw&o
years, which I would prefer to'
see. Some say it should b&
based on the cost and others
say it should be on a different?
tial basis. Some say it should'
apply to commercial proper-
ties as well as residential.
"It's hard to tell at this
point what any of the bills
would do. That's one of the
reasons why I'm going to that
workshop. I'm hoping to get
some answers."

Verizon to let cables hang below Dona Bay bridge


Look for great meal deals in the Green Sheet


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


Verizon has no plans to
raise cable lines hanging
below the Dona Bay Bridge.
A request to do so was
made last November by the
Sarasota Board of County
Commissioners. The cables
limit clearance for boats, and
have prompted the concern
of boaters.
A spokesperson for the
company said that Verizon
will "move our physical plant,
at our expense, to accommo-
date" construction involved
in the $32.4-million widening
of U.S. 41 in Nokomis. The
.............-- ---;-


bridge will be replaced, and
improvements will be made
to the Shakett Creek bridge.
The commissioners had
also requested that when that
work is done, that Verizon go
overhead with its lines.
Verizon said that while
construction is under way, its
network will not function.
"We will work around the
construction until it is com-
pleted, then reattach our
lines," said the spokesperson.
The company will confine
its activities to two of the
three bridges involved in the
road-widening.
There is even a possibility
that Verizon cables will be


buried, according to. the
spokesperson. That is an
industry trend.
The commissioners also
voted in November to try to
persuade the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation to build
a pedestrian walk under the
new Dona Bay bridge. It will
have higher clearance for boats.
"Raising the bridge was in
the original plan," commis-
sioner Jon Thaxton said at the
time. "So why not make it eas-
ier and safer for pedestrians
to get across U.S. 41?"
, The walk-under had been
proposed originally by the
Nokomis Area Civic Associ-
ation.


FDOT's project will widen
the highway from four lanes
to six from the Venice Bypass
to about 50 yards north of
Laurel Road. From that point
to State Road 681, new curbs
and gutters will be installed;
the center island, or median,
will be widened; and the
roadway will be milled and
resurfaced.
"We will, in effect, make a
new road there," said Joel
Williams, project manager for
Greenhorne & O'Mara, the
contractor.
Begun in early November,
the road widening is expected
to be completed in 22
months.

Condo planned for South McCall Road


BY GAVIN OFF
ASSISTANT ENGLEWOOD EDITOR

,I An upscale nine-unit con-
tominium, complete with an
entrance fountain, infinity
pool and a rooftop whirlpool,
will join the small resorts and
single-family homes of South
McCall Road.
Windswept on Lemon Bay,
currently waiting for permits
qfom Sarasota County, will
replace Windjammer on
Lemon Bay, a quaint one-
story resort complete with a
boat dock and fishing pier.
James Duckworth, a part-
time Englewood resident and
9ne of five partners for the
Windswept project, said the
condominium would have


three floors above parking
and reach about 41 feet in
height. It would border Lem-
on Bay.
"We're asking for no vari-
ances," Duckworth said. "We
met all the setbacks, all the
landscaping requirements, all
the zoning requirements."
The project has already
received permits from the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District and is
expected to receive its county
site plan permits by the end
of the month. The land is
already zoned for residential
multi-family development,
Duckworth said.
The project will likely
break ground in May or June,
with construction lasting one


year.
"We're very attuned to
what's going on down there,"
said Duckworth, also a resi-
dent of Rhode Island. "We're
trying very hard to fit in with-
in the community."
South McCall Road is one
of the few waterfront roads in
Englewood that has not seen
an influx of high-end devel-
opment. It's home to mostly
small resorts like Emerald
Palms Resort and Apart-
ments, Englewood Bay Motel
and Englewood Lighthouse
Resort.
The six-unit Englewood
Lighthouse Resort will sit next
to the condominium.
Renters there said they un-
derstood that "progress" was


inevitable, but they added
that an upscale condomini-
um would change the charac-
teristics of the small, two-lane
road off State Road 776.
"I bet in five years, this will
all be condos," said Shirley
Mueller, a renter from Chi-
cago.
"This is what you call pro-
gress and you can't stop that,"
added Jordan Levacoff of
Buffalo, N.Y. 'A different class
of people will come here. We
can't afford a million dollars."
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Shannon Staub said
Englewood is one of the last
areas in the county to come
under the pressure of devel-,
opment. And while neighbors
and commissioners may not


like the change, "it's going to
happen."
"I think the difference is ...
this is the first one," Staub
said. "It's like being on a small
street and a mega-house
coming in."
Duckworth said the prop-
erty, which includes an exist-
ing dock, was bought last year
for $1.9 million. Swiftmud
may require that the dock be
brought up to code.
Units ranging from 2,586
square feet to 2,617 square
feet will cost between $1.15
million and $1.35 million.
Units include a garage,
porches or lanais. Boat dock
space will cost $75,000.
Two units have already
been sold.


"We think we're going to
offer the nicest units, certain-
ly the largest around," Duck-
worth said. "It's going to fit in
with the area, very low-key."
Joe McCarthy of Remax
Hometown Properties is a
broker and owner of the pro-
ject.
He said the Windswept
project will set the bar for
future development on the
street. There are already ru-
mors of other small resorts on
South McCall Road selling out
to condominium developers.
"I see the waterfront disap-
pearing over the next 20
years," Duckworth said.
"They're going to really be
elegant units. It's really going
to be sexy."

North Port lot sales a resou


success


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

When they projected rev-
enue from the delinquent-tax
lot sale to reach beyond $25
million, the staffs of Sarasota
County and the city of North
Port were laughed at. The
guess included all 2,100 lots
for sale.
The appraisals came in
even higher, with estimates
that an online land auction
would bring in $50 million.
Each of those estimates
was wrong, said County Man-
ager of Policies and Projects
Terry Gilbert.
The real number, after
three of four phases of sales
for the first 1,827 lots have
been sold, is $60,753,200 in
gross revenues.
Gilbert .made a presenta-
tion about the online sale
Tuesday before a joint meet-
ing of Sarasota County and
North Port commissioners.
The third session ended
Monday with all but five of
the original 1,832 lots up for
sale sold.


An additional online sale
will need to take place in
March to cover the sale of
land that had Florida scrub
jays on it. The properties have
been cleared for sale by the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
The total does not include
the 6-percent buyer's premi-
um the winning bidders must
pay, which is typical of auc-
tions.

Working together
Net proceeds from the sale
of the lots will be split by
Sarasota County, which will
take 45 percent, and the city
of North Port, which will get
55 percent.
Sarasota officials said they
plan to apply most of the
money it receives toward
affordable housing. North
Port has not yet stated how it
will use its share of the pro-
ceeds.
That translates to more
than $21 million for county
coffers after the county fulfills
a pledge of $5 million to the
school district.
North Port would receive


about $32 million if the num-
bers hold up.
The average price for lots
was $29,750 in the first ses-
sion, $34,300 in the second
session and $33,690 in ses-
sion three.
Gilbert said there will be a
session four in March with a
live auction May 4 if there are
any lots left.
"The way things are going,
all of the lots may sell out
completely," Gilbert said.
All of the lots were put on
the tax-delinquent rolls be-
tween 1999 and 2004 and
could have been bought for as
little as $1,000 each.
The county was once
offered $12 million for all of
the lots and was criticized for
not taking the offer at the
time.
County commissioner Jon
Thaxton said the enormous
effort was an example of how
the county and city have
worked together toward a
common goal with unexpect-
ed benefits.

Little Salt Spring Basin


Larry Arn-
old, a county


manager, g .
updated the
two boards
on the pur-
chase of land
surrounding Thaxton
Little Salt
Spring.
North Port was the site of
some of the earliest habita-
tion in Florida, dating to as
early as 7,000 B.C.
In 2003 the county bought
19 of 25 lots and recently
bought another lot with yet
another to be purchased in
the next month.
North Port Commission
Chairman Rue Berryman said
it is one of the most impor-
tant sites in the city.
"This will be a real attrac-
tion for the city of North Port,"
Berryman said.
Thaxton said the city is
blessed with more than just
the one site. There are two
other midden sites, which the
county is also interested in


preserving.

Transportation funding
County Public Works Di-
rector Jim Harriott explained
the changes in the state's five-
year transportation program.
The average work program
year is $57 million, which
includes safety and sustain-
ability.
The Florida Department of
Transportation delayed $4.7
million and deferred a $42.3
million widening-of U.S. 301,
he said.
"This pushes every pro-
gram back a year or more,"
Harriott said. "It means each
project (including the U.S. 41
Bypass in Venice and Engle-.
wood Interstate connector)
gets pushed back."
The primary reason for the
cuts is the massive increase in'
overall costs.


He updated everyone on
the Transportation Regional
Initiative Program, which
would improve the traffic sig-
nal system on major roads
including U.S. 41 and Sumter
Boulevard.
Harriott also provided an
update on the status of the
interstate connector.
The design phase between
U.S. 41 and Interstate 75 has
reached 30 percent, which
includes pond-siting reports
and some right-of-way acqui-
sition.
The first phase, which
would build four and six
lanes, is estimated to have a
cost of $36 million.
There has been $4 million
in federal funding for design
of the project, but it currently
has no dedicated funding
source for actual construc-
tion.

Swiftmud receives $1 million for FARMS program


STAFF REPORT


State Sen. Michael Bennett
and Rep. Nancy Detert
recently presented a $1 mil-
lion check to the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District in support of the
Facilitating Agricultural Re-
source Management Systems
program.
The FARMS program is a
cost-share reimbursement
program that conserves
water and protects water
quality.
S "Through accurate and
efficient irrigation utilizing
the latest technology, farmers
are able to save water and
fuel," said David Brown,
FARMS program manager.-
,, "The rising cost of fuel need-
ed to run irrigation well
_ pumps is an additional incen-
tive for farmers to participate
in the program."
ac Representatives at the pre-


sentation included the
Department. of Agriculture
and Consumer Services,
Florida Farm Bureau, High-
lands County Citrus Growers
Association, Peace River
Valley Citrus Growers A-
ssociation, Florida Fruit &
Vegetable Association, and
several FARMS project partic-
ipants.
Also in attendance were
district governing board
members Tom Dabney and
Patsy Symons; Manasota
Basin Board Members Mac
Carraway and Frank Strelec;
and Peace River Basin Board
members Ken Harrison and
Paul Samuels.
Billions of gallons
The FARMS program has
two priority areas: the Upper
Myakka River watershed and
Shell Creek, Prairie Creek and
Joshua Creek watersheds. The
Upper Myakka River water-


shed includes portions of
Manatee and Sarasota coun-
ties. The Shell Creek, Prairie
Creek and Joshua Creek
watersheds include portions
of DeSoto and Charlotte
counties.
The FARMS program is
jointly funded by state
appropriations, the district's
general fund, the district's
Alafia River, Peace River and
Manasota basin boards, and
the Department of Agri-
culture and Consumer
Services.
Currently, the district gov-
erning board has approved 22
FARMS projects. There are 13
projects under construction
and 20 additional active po-
tential projects identified and
in the planning stages.
It is anticipated that 2.4 bil-
lion gallons of water have
been offset through FARMS,
equating to approximately 2.5
million gallons per day.


Attending the ceremony for the presentation of Swiftmud's $1 million FARMS program grant
are, from left, Peace River Basin Board Member Paul Samuels, Manasota Basin Board Member
Mac Carraway, Sen. Mike Bennett, Rep. Nancy Detert, governing board members Patsy Symons
and Tom Dabney, Manasota Basin Board Member Frank Strelec and Peace River Basin Board
Member Ken Harrison.

OUR VIEW




Keys to a strong economy identified


ven while the rest of the nation strug-
gles with unemployment, the loss of
industry, rising debt and hikes in hous-
ing costs, Florida has flourished.
It's almost as if the Sunshine State has had
an invisible shield at its border, protecting us
from all the economic ills many other states
have been hit with.
Whether we can continue the economic
growth we have become accustomed to is the
question we face in the next decade.
According to a report by the Florida Council
of 100, we must step up and meet the chal-
lenge, or be left behind.
The Council of 100 was formed in 1961 at the
request of Gov. C. Farris Bryant. It is a private,
nonpartisan, nonprofit association whose
members represent a cross-section of
Floridians. Its recent report was called


"Preparing for the Future," and, while for the
most part it was encouraging, it listed some
areas of concern that we must pay attention to.
Some of the red flags raised included:
Industry in Florida relies too much (more
than two-thirds) on expensive fuel such as
natural gas to make electricity. The coun-
cil suggested looking more to clean coal and
nuclear energy for solutions.
The state is known for a low-cost of liv-
ing. Substantial increases in the cost of hous-
ing threatens that status. The concerns point
to an accelerated need for affordable hous-
ing.
Too many college graduates in Florida
find their skills are not suited for the state's
needs. Teachers are an exception to this rule.
The state's road system is rapidly becom-
ing inadequate for the growth we are experi-


encing. According to the study, travel delays
in Miami will surpass those in Los Angeles in
10 years. Anyone who makes fun of LA's traf-
fic jams can find no comfort in that predic-
tion.
High schools and middle schools have
not been able to duplicate gains made in ele-
mentary school education. That is a serious
issue if Florida is to meet the demand for
high-tech and professional jobs.
And, a final concern that did not get top
ranking in the report, but is at the top of
many of our priority lists, is hurricane readi-
ness. There is a need for more hurricane shel-
ters and planning to offset the costs of recon-
struction. The plight of the state's insurance
market is-another issue to be dealt with.
The council has given its report to Gov. Jeb
Bush, and all four gubernatorial candidates


and will offer additional briefings to other
candidates and state policy leaders.
The eight key "drivers" of economic devel-
opment that we must pay attention to are:
education; income; jobs and business;
growth management and the environment;
hurricane readiness and costs; attainable
housing; rising health care costs; energy
dependency; and affordability and globaliza-
tion.
Each of these "drivers" of the state's econ-
omy has issues and challenges we must deal
with before we can be confident of continued
economic growth.
We applaud the Council of 100 for what
appears to be a thorough report. It is now up
to state leaders to craft a plan of action to
head off the potential pitfalls exposed in its
findings.


Not like it



used to be


KL~ f W V-,


.1


A few of us from Sun Coast.
Media ventured to Orlando to
attend a national newspaper
marketing conference.
In the past these confer-
ences used to be about ,things,
like, how can we get better
penetration of the newspaper
by using different selling
techniques. That might
include finding new outlets
for distributing the newspa-
per, even adding a product or
two or maybe a new feature.
We would have a session
on how to retain customers,
maybe one on new sales tech-
niques or promotions news-
papers put on in the commu-
nity. We'd talk about how to
give our advertisers more cir-
culation.
That has all changed.
Our business, like all oth-
ers, is adopting electronic
media as fast as it can to help
serve the mission of distribut-
ing news and information in a
variety of ways. The X genera-
tion wants to get information
in a lot of ways foreign to
what a newspaperman might
traditionally be thinking.
The Internet world is one
of those ways, but not the
only one. This year we added
being able to deliver the
newspaper ih its print form
electronically via the Internet.
This E-Edition is particu-
larly used by people going up
north who want to keep in
touch with what is going on in
our communities but don't
want a lot of paper. They can
get it cheaper and faster elec-
tronically. Certainly not as
handy on the "throne,"
though.
We have for some time put
all of our advertisers' ads on
the Internet. Ads are generally
sorted by type so the reader
can see ads having run in the
last seven days. We are now
giving the advertiser an audi-
ence, not just circulation of
copies. We not only do this for
retail advertisers but also
classified advertisers.
To help our readers further
in this electronic world, we
have added an Internet direc-
tory that can point them to
) local businesses or, for that
matter, businesses all over the
country.
SID; short for Sun Internet
Directory, is a great search
tool. Just in the last week we


have added a search engine
for homes. So far we are
putting the Charlotte-area
homes on this and will soon
be putting Venice-area homes
from our advertisers. We will
be doing more enhance-
ments on the Internet as the
year goes on.
But now people are getting
their news on their PDAs,
even on their mobile phones.
The advent of broadband for
portable devices like Black-
berry and myriad devices that
combine all functions, in-
cluding taking pictures, is
challenging us as providers of
news to be able to feed infor-
mation that you want to
where you want it.
You want to be the first to
know about the big things
that are happening. That
might include a huge news
story, an airplane crash, a tor-
nado or maybe that 1-75 is
closed. We are pressed to try
to keep up with it all.
In most markets tradition-
al circulation has declined. As
a group ours has increased,
but as the desires of the users
change, we need to change
with them. That is a huge
undertaking. Of course, own-
ing our own telephone com-
pany helps us with our wire-
less and broadband capabili-
ty.
The challenge is keeping
up with it and finding people
in a full employment market
to be able to implement all of
the new technology while
quickly improving our tradi-
tional products.

By's Crack- With George
Washington's birthday just
past, I really feel sorry for
George. He didn't have pre-
vious administrations to
blame things on.


The newspaper confer-
ence was at the Marriott
World Conference Center in
Orlando. This was, what I
would envision (likely on a
smaller scale) in Sarasota
County: a convention center
attached to a hotel that pro-
vides most of the housing.
There were two large con-
ferences going on at the same
time. One was our national.
meeting, the other was the
regional (eight states) meet-
ing for First American Title.
The complex had a golf
course, lots of pools, a spa-
and nice fitness facilities for
people on diets needing to
bum calories.
The nice thing about this
was it did not need to be
downtown. It was about a 15-
minute ride to Disney and
maybe 20 to downtown. It is

I need my money for prescriptions


Editor:
On March 14 Sarasota County voters will determine
whether the temporary school tax should be extended.
I am a retired senior, like the vast majority of those who pay,
the taxes' here. I have no children attending any school. My
greatest concern instead is paying skyrocketing medical bills.
If the tax is rejected, in my case it will mean a $425 reduction
on the annual property tax check I send in each November. I
really could use that $425 to pay doctors, labs and pharmacies.
The schools here never have stopped, nor will they ever
stop, asking for more money from us, regardless how much
they have already gotten from us.
Skyrocketing home prices have been raising property tax
collections and giving schools unprecedented windfalls far
greater than budgetary needs and way beyond the increase in
the number of students they have to teach.
Florida has 67 counties. Only three pay teachers more than
ours. However, students here aren't learning much.
For example, in our newest, lavishly built and equipped high
school in North Port, two out of three still can't pass reading
tests despite all the new money.
If enough of us tax-paying citizens, particularly senior
retirees like me without kids in school, mark our calendars and
take a few minutes to go vote "No" on March 14 so we could
surpass those thousands of school employees who will surely
all go vote "Yes," then we will each get a reduction of several
hundred dollars in the amount of property tax we send in each
fall.

Looking for the
owner of a camera
Editor:
During Christmas week,
Dec. 22-29, my son found and
retrieved a bag of possessions
probably of a young girl. This
was on an early morning hike
on Nokomis Beach.
After the company rush
ended, I had the underwater
disposable camera developed
in the hope of being able to
identify the owner.
There are pictures of the
probable owner, a mom or
grandma and a dive guide
showing them a manta ray.
I wonder if the paper
might assist in any way to see
if any of your readers could
perhaps recognize the pho-
tos, or the circumstances of


the child's loss.
Thank you for anything
you.can do.

'Saving' on drugs
is expensive
Editor:
My prescription drugs
amount to $160 a year and I
have discovered that it would
cost me more to join a plan
because of the premium,
$250 deductible and copay I
would have to pay before my
plan went into effect.
In addition, if I needed to
join a plan after May 15,2006,
I find I would be subject to a
penalty compounded, no
less!


I was described by one
agent as "one of those." Now, I
ask you, is that fair?

Fox is in the
henhouse
Editor:
Congratulations, low-level
beltway politicians, for allow-
ing the fox into the henhouse
in less than 30 days.
Thank you, Mr. Chertoff,
for informing me on tonight's
news that my grandbabies
and all Americans are safe in
their beds at night with
Washington's latest foolish
decision: The United Arab
Emirates' Dubai Ports World,
a state-owned corporation, is
taking over operations at six
American ports.
Are.you beltway politicians
nuts? No, of course you aren't.
You are sly like the fox you've
let into the henhouse. A $6.8-
billion dollar takeover. Plenty
of pay-off money in $6.8 bil-
lion and all lucrative monies
down the road.
You are the same egregious
politicians who bungled relief
for hurricanes Katrina and
Rita in not one, but three
states. The hundreds of my
fellow Americans who died
trusted you people.
You are the same politi-
cians who spent millions on
fictitious Hurricane Pam so
you'd have a blueprint to fol-
low should the worst-case
scenario become reality. One
year later you forgot where
you stashed the blueprint.
You are the same egregious
humans who worried about
clothing selections for photo
ops while so many of my fel-
low Americans were dying
and suffering.
The spin you attempt to


sell Americans nauseates me.
This latest decision has infu-
riated everyone I know,
whether Democrat or Repub-
lican.
These ports belong to all of
' us. The United Arab Emirates
does'not have my permission
to operate these ports.
As long as you people are
making these horrible deci-
sions, my grandbabies are not
safe in their beds at night.
None of us is.

U.S. health care
system is broken
Editor:
On Jan. 13, I suffered a
heart attack; a very unlucky
day for me. I want to. thank
the emergency doctor and
staff for saving my life. I owe
them a lot.
However, that all changed
when my Jan. 16, 7:30 a.m.
medical procedure was:
abruptly changed to late
afternoon without any expla-
nation.
It became apparent to me
that my medical well-being
became secondary and mak-
ing a sizable profit did enter
the picture.. This type of
shocking story has been
brought to my attention by
many over the past 14 years.
It's nothing new for any hos-
pital owned by a profit-mak-
ing group.
I further investigated the
billing the hospital, doctors,

I sense a contradiction here


Forked tongues. It sounds like the mentality is to get rid of
the low-income trailer and mobile home parks; that way there
will not be such a strain on our social and health services. Only
the rich and famous are allowed to move to Southwest Florida.
But who is going to clean their houses and serve them at their
favorite restaurants? All the elected officials talk with forked
tongues. One side is, we need more low-income housing. The
other side, they go ahead and let the developer tear down the
mobile homes.


Thank heavens. I'm glad
the county has had the
courage to challenge our city's
plans to increase density in
annexed areas beyond the
limits of the city's own 1999
comprehensive plan. The city,
after all, failed to discuss
those increased densities with
its own citizens, many of
whom oppose them. City
Manager Marty Black com-
plained the city was excluded
from the table at a meeting on
the subject of the county's
East Venice Avenue overlay
district, being relegated to the
audience like all other prop-
erty owners. I attended the
second meeting on that sub-
ject, which is important to
many Venice residents and
held on a Saturday morning.
Some residents from Venice
were there, but apparently no
one from Venice City Hall.
Salaried professionals from
the city are not nine-to-five
employees and should regard
attending such meetings as
important to their job perfor-
mance. We recently gave
council members a big pay
increase, but they still avoid
public meetings. Thank heav-
ens council can read about
what happened in the
Gondolier Sun. I hope they
subscribe.
Need differences. I have
two comments, one on septic
tanks. I have a septic tank and
I like it. You will never hear of
a septic tank spewing millions
of gallons of sewage into the
waterway or into the Gulf of
Mexico or any river. So, septic
tanks, let's keep them where
we have them.
The second comment is on
the Pit Stop on South Tami-
ami Trail on the island of
Venice. I think it's great. Why
do we have to be all carbon
copies of one another? We're
gonna wear our hair alike,
we're gonna dress alike, we're
gonna have to live in the same
house with the same car. I can
see further up maybe Venice
Avenue should have some
continuity, but let's not be
ridiculous, and I think that we
are. We need to have differ-
ences; otherwise this is going
to be dull.
Will print? Is the Gondolier
Sun going to print all the e-
mails and letters it receives
that agree with Joe Brower's
assessment of the education
referendum?
EDITOR'S NOTE: We've printed
all the ones, positive and negative,
sent for publication.
Boring. Again today in your
Sunday paper, the Let'em
Have It page was absolutely
boring all those should be
letters to the editor, but peo-
ple are afraid to sign their
name. You should stick to
your smaller column of items
that are interesting.
True generosity. My com-
ment is for all of your callers
who are blatantly putting


down the Pit Stop, which is on
the south end of the island,
painted red with its black and
white checkerboard. It's un-
fortunate these people do not
have something better to
gripe about than the color of a
building. What they don't
know is that the person be-
hind that business is some-
one who gives back 10-fold to
the community, who is willing
to open his home and his
heart to those who are truly in
need. They have donated over
the years thousands in the
community and have done a
lot of good work.
Useless. Mr. Richard Bow-
ers from Sarasota put a letter
in there that says Democrats
supposedly only offer empty
rhetoric. He- wrote, "Un-
scrupulous, vengeful politi-
cians, mostly Democrats,
with their screaming media
lapdogs, have entered this
sixth consecutive year in a
despicable campaign to de-
stroy the second-finest Re-
publican administration in
more than 100 years." Well,
I've got some news for him: I
never even saw a first finest
Republican administration,
and what we got now- that
one should never even be in
there it's just destroying
this whole country.
The Democrats are just as
bad in some respects, but you
know something? Who's a
Democrat and who's a Re-
publican? They come up with
those stupid, names; they're
supposed to he Congress and
Senate. They're supposed to
work by the people and for
the people, not for themselves
like they've been doing, rip-
ping them off.
Every time Republicans are
in office that never did work.
Whenever Democrats are in
there, at least they work for
the working class and not for
the elite.
What a joke. This educa-
tion problem, man that's, a
joke. Why can't the govern-
ment support the money to
take care of them? Why do we
have to keep putting our tax
money .in to take care of the
schools to get education for
our kids when the govern-
ment's supposed to do it with
our tax money? And they
come and put all these extra
mills and all that for the.
school.
Where's this lottery money
going? Sixteen billion, they
say, going to the schools -
yeah, to the colleges, the big-


shot colleges that have pull
with the government. That's
where that money goes. -
Take pride. This is in re-
sponse to "Take a walk in her
shoes." I'm the one who called
in about the grocery carts
lying in the ditch by Grove
Terrace. I just want this writer
to know I was in their shoes. I
carried a baby in a slippery
snowsuit in Minneapolis,
Minn., through 20-degree
weather to the babysitter and
then walked to the bus line to
go to work. I'm not saying that
everybody can have a job, but
there must be some boyfriend
or able-bodied men over
there who, when the ladies go
to get their groceries, can
push the kids in the cart and
take the cart back. It just
makes it look nicer. If nothing
else, pick them up and push
them into the Grove Terrace
living area so it doesn't look
like a housing project on 41
Bypass. They're not happy to
be there, they need to be
there, but everybody do their
part and make it look better.
Bring circus back. This is
regarding should Sarasota
County try to bring Ringling
Brothers back to the area. I'm
calling about bringing it back
to Venice, not to Sarasota.
Venice is where it originated. I
think it's too bad that they
didn't repair the railroad. They
could have put containers in
the businesses that would
have collected enough mon-
ey. We could probably double
that now or more. I resent tak-
ing anything to Sarasota. The
railroad could have brought
people from Sarasota to Ven-
ice to view the circus. I hope
they do not tear down the
arena that is here. It was loved
when it was in town. I wish
someone would give it some
thought. Sarasota has enough
going for it.
Give us news. I'm pretty
disappointed. I got the Wed-
nesday paper this morning.
Yesterday, there was a high-
speed car chase through
downtown Venice, tons of
cops putting regular people's
lives in danger. That didn't
make the headlines of the
Gondolier Sun, but this stupid
new movie theater did? Come
on, give us some news.
W hat's best. If Mike Miller
really wants what is best for
Venice, why doesn't he pur-
chase the wharf property and
deed it to the city for a park?
Didn't think. After the four
fires in Alabama, why didn't
some idiot think of putting a
stakeout in a couple of the
churches, instead of waiting
for it to burn down?
Can't afford. How sad it is
that after looking forward to
going to aVenice movie house
again, I can't afford the price.
Eight dollars is far too much
for my budget.

er. It's called price fixing in my
book.
Affordable health care and
prescription drugs are surely
needed in our country. I am
lucky to have Medicare and
my secondary insurance cov-
erage, but what of these peo-
ple who can't afford to pay for
high health insurance premi-
ums and expensive drugs?
The medical system we
have in the United States
needs a complete overhaul.
Perhaps it is time to consider,
the Canada and England

everybody has health care
and prescription drug cover-

upcoming election in 2006.

Responsible but
not accountable
Editor:
The White House buddies
have adopted a new catch
phrase. When bad news
makes the headlines, it's, "I
take full responsibility."
These spoken words
should be taken seriously and
have some retribution, but
that's not the case.
When the Abu Ghraib pris-
oner abuse story broke four
months after it happened and
Rumsfeld was questioned by
the Senate, he stated, "I take
full responsibility."'
Nothing changed with
him, but two enlisted person-
nel got prison sentences.
None of their -officers was
charged or held accountable.
Is this what the Army calls
justice?
A similar scenario took
place when Hurricane Ka-
trina came ashore on a
Saturday night. New Orleans'
levees broke, stranding thou-
sands with little food and
water. It took FEMA two days
to respond. In spite of this,
Bush praised Michael Brown,


FEMA's head, for doing a good
job. Brown later resigned
under severe pressure.
He testified to Congress he
sent numerous e-mails to the
White House on Saturday,
stressing the serious prob-
lems that the storm imposed.
What happened to this infor-
mation: was it ignored and
never forwarded? I doubt
that.
Michael Chertoff, head of
Homeland Security, went to
bed Saturday night, then on
to Atlanta Sunday to a bird flu
seminar. Bush was spending
the weekend at his Texas
ranch. Both Bush and
Chertoff later stated, "I take
full responsibility."
Bush has released billions
to aid the hurricane victims.
Chertoff is still head of
Homeland Security.
The government must
react to disasters the same on
weekends as it does on week-
days.

Taken in by a
TV commercial
Editor:
For several months I've
seen ads on TV about a book
on natural cures and also a
medication for improving
memory. In early January I
ordered the two items.
At the time I ordered the
natural cures book, the price
was advertised at $14.95, plus
shipping. When I called the
shipping was $9.95. They also
wanted me to, buy a monthly
newsletter. I said I only want-
ed the book, but if I was satis-
fied, I would consider the
newsletter.
I received a statement for
the book for $24.90 to be
charged to my credit card,
along with a four-page letter.
On page three they said my
credit card had been charged
$71.40
The ad stated the charge as
$4.95. I was charged $69.95,
and when I called my credit


card company to protest, they
said I was charged $69.75
again in February. Everybody
should watch the charges on
your credit cards.
By the way, the product
doesn't work.

Carter lost
his respect
Editor:
Jimmy Carter must be off
his meds again. How does a
once honorable Southern
gentleman turn into a politi-
cal hack? The man I once
admired and respected has
become despicable.
His presidency was a huge
disappointment, but I never
doubted his character. The,
man did his best, even if he
wasn't up to the job.
Is he trying to make a lega-
cy post presidency? What a
shame, what a fool.

way I assume the Marriott
absorbs most of the costs,
maybe with some incentives.

It was fun seeing Lynn
Lewis, local manager of First
American, at the conference
center. She was attending as
well as presenting at her con-
ference. She won second
place in a contest they held
for the person most in the
New York theme. She went as
a Macy's Parade balloon han-
dler with huge balloons.

Received a call from Sam
Prost, a member of the board
of the Venice Housing
Authority. 'He wanted me to
know that the VHA project
had been advertised in our
paper and in the Herald-
Tribune, as well as some trade
publications. That was news
to me and I'm glad he
brought me up to speed.
He mentioned that it cer-
tainly was there for local resi-
dent Brad Baker to receive. I
asked why, out of courtesy,
they would not tell Brad
about it since Brad had told
the VHA of his interest. He
indicated it would be hard to
know where to draw the line
on that.


I suggested I thought they
would want anyone who had
an interest so that as many as
possible would bid.
Sam indicated that every-
thing isn't final, that there are
likely to be a lot of changes as
they get more input. I certain-
ly hope that is the case.

Today's Ism (a sign on an

remove your shorts.

A week of conventions
makes a diet just about
impossible. I did work out at
the fitness center, although if
you weren't there by 6:30 a.m.
there were no machines
open. Luckily for me I get
started quite a bit before that.
I held my own not up, not
down. I actually consider that
a victory.

Because material costs spi-
raling upward, the Venetian
Waterway Park was unable to
complete the trail on the east
side of the waterway. It's more
than $100,000 short.
I hope the county can find
a way to participate in the
materials cost of this project.
The overrun in sales-tax rev-
enue would be a perfect fit for
this, I would think.
I realize the county already


is a contributor by maintain-
ing the trail, and that should
not be diminished, but in the
expense of a more than $5
million project I think they
could help fund less than 1
percent and finish it off.
Pretty please with sugar on
top.

Make sure you go to the
FREE Kiwanis-Gondolier Sun
Expo Friday and Saturday.
The entire community center
will be packed with vendors
of all descriptions, many with
handouts and prize drawings.
Irene O'Connell of Ki-
wanis has done an incredible
job with her committee get-
ting this put together. The
proceeds each year go to local
charities. You can make a
weekend of it by going to the
art show downtown.

Look for our second edi-
tion of Relish this Friday. This
is a great product for the cook
or the person who just enjoys
food and spirits.

Christmas Eve: A police office


BY KEN KLEINLEIN
CRIME SCENE COLUMNIST

I read an article recently in
the New York 10-13 Police
Officers Newsletter. It was a
letter from a policeman to his
brother and sister officers
detailing a situation he had
experienced while working
one Christmas Eve.
It made a lasting impres-
sion on me and drove home
the point that from the time
we take the oath and pin on
the shield, to when we stand
our last roll call, whether
active or retired, we will
always be cops.
It epitomizes protection,
camaraderie, honor, profes-
sional courtesy, ethnocen-
trism, dependency and car-,
ing. These are the things I
believe all police officers
should, and hopefully do, live
by: Take care of your fellow
officers past and present,
because there may come a
time when all we have is each
other.
I had to print this. It
brought a tear to my eye, and
I have not changed a word.
"In 1974 when I first joined
the :police department, I
knew there would be special
occasions my family would
spend-without me. Knowing
that fact did not make the
task any easier.


The celebrations I missed
that first year depressed me
and sometimes made me feel
bitter. Working on Christmas
Eve was always the worst.
On Christmas Eve in 1977,
I learned that blessing can
come disguised as misfor-
tune, and honor is more than
just a word.
I was riding a one-man
patrol on the four-12 shift.
The night was cold. Every-
where I looked I saw remind-
ers of the holiday: families
packing their cars with pre-
sents, beautifully decorated
trees in living room windows
and roofs adorned with tiny
sleighs. It all added to my hol-
iday funk.
The evening had been rela-
tively quiet; there were calls
for barking dogs and a resi-
dential .burglar alarm. I
thought of my own family
and sank further into depres-
sion.
Shortly after 2200 hours I
got a radio call to the home of
a Terminally ill man. I parked
my patrol car in front of a
simple Cape Cod-style home.
First-aid kit in hand, I
walked up the short path to
the front door. As I ap-
proached, a woman who ap-
peared to be about 80 years
.old opened the door. ,.....,,,
'He's in here,', she'said,
leading me to a back bed-

room.
We passed through a living
room that was furnished in a
style I had come to associate
with older people. The sofa
had an afghan blanket
draped over its back and a
dark, solid Queen Anne chair
next to an unused fireplace.
The mantel was cluttered
with an eccentric mix of sev-
eral photos, some ceramic
figurines and an antique
clock. A floor lamp provided
soft lighting.
We entered a small bed-
room where a frail-looking.
man lay in bed with a blanket
pulled up to his chin. He wore
a blank stare on his ashen,
skeletal face. His breathing
was shallow and labored. He
was barely alive.
The trappings of illness
were all around his bed. The
nightstand was littered with a
large number of pill vials. An
oxygen bottle stood nearby;
its plastic hose with face mask
attached rested on the blan-
ket.
I asked the old woman why
she called the police. She sim-
ply shrugged and nodded
sadly toward her husband,
indicating that it was his
request. I looked at him and
he stared intently into my
, eyes. He.seemed relaxed noiy.
I didn't understand the sud-
denly calm expression on his


face.
I looked around the room
again. A dresser stood along
the wall to the left of the bed.
On it were the usual memora-
bilia: ornate perfume bottles,
white porcelain pin case and
a wooden jewelry case. There
were also several photos in
simple frames.
One caught my eye and I
walked to the dresser for a
closer look. The picture
showed young man dressed
in a police uniform. It was
unmistakably a photo of the
man in bed.
I knew then why I was
there.
I looked at the old man
and he motioned with his
hand toward the side of the
bed. I walked over and stood
beside him. He slid a thin arm
from under the covers and
took my hand. I felt his hand
go limp, I looked at his face. I
saw only peace.
He knew he was dying; he
was aware his time was very
near. I know now that he was
afraid of what was about to
happen and he wanted the
protection of a fellow cop on
his journey. A caring God had
seen to it that his child would
be delivered safely to him.
The honor of being his escort
feg to me. '.fii 'z.h S31", Ss'
When I left at the end of
my tour that night, the tem-


,r's tale

perature had seemed to rise
considerably, and all the holi-

Offering cremation and


offering tfl- OUSC cremation are

two entirely different options.

When other funeral homes say they offer
cremation, they use other facilities, other
firms, sometimes far away.
We, on the other hand, do not. Your
loved one remains in our care with our
firm and our compassionate staff. Our
in-house crematory is just one way we
show that closeness counts.

TAKING IT LIKE A PRO
Backyard football games may not include the bone-jarring hits seen in pro games, but many of the same injuries
occur. Hip injuries make up 17% of all football injuries, followed by wrist and hand injuries at 15%, knee injuries
at 14.5%, and ankle injuries at 14%, says the National Athletic Trainers' Association. Beyond that, injuries to the
shoulders, torso, and head/spine each make up 10% of total injuries. For recreational players, common injuries
include sprained ligaments and strained muscles. Younger players are more often injured in the hands, arms, and
shoulders; older players are more commonly injured in the legs and knees, which can lead to chronic pain.
Chiropractic treatment helps ensure proper recovery from injury.
Among health care professionals, chiropractors are some of the most actively involved in sports-related
conditioning, injury prevention, treatment and rehabilitation. Have you been injured? Could gentle and safe
chiropractic care make you feel better? At TWIN PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH CENTER, located at
1214-C Venice Ave. East, we work to restore your health and guide you in a personalized approach to overall
wellness. Special chiropractic methods, called adjustments, can help reduce swelling and irritation, relieve pain,
and show degeneration. Please call 941-412-3800 to schedule an appointment. Let us help you live life without
pain. We offer massage therapy and have 2 licensed massage therapists on staff.
P.S. According to the National Athletic Trainers' Association, more than 60% of the injuries experienced by high
school football players occur during practice, not games.

The Venice High
team has played
down ball through


baseball
up and
the first


four games of the season.
The Indians have looked
good in victories over North
Port and Southeast and not
so good in losses to
Riverview and Port Char-
lotte.
Head coach Craig Faulkner
is looking for some consisten-
cy in a pair of big games this
week.
One of the traditionally
strong programs in the state
- Sarasota will play host
to Venice Tuesday in a 7 p.m.
start. It will be a non-district
game. Clyde Metcalf's Sailors
are off to a 3-1 start.
On Friday, Bayshore
comes to town. Faulkner
calls the Bruins one of the
most improved teams in the
district.
Venice will have to go with
its top two pitchers shelved
with injuries. Jordan Lucas has
torn some cartilage in his ribs,
according to Faulkner.
Kenealy is battling a touch of
tendinitis.
Faulkner said Venice will
pitch by committee Tuesday
and possibly go with lefty
Ryan Anderson on Friday.
Senior Jeremie Cook is back
with the team after winning
his second straight state
wrestling championship.
"He'll throw some bullpen
for a couple weeks," Faulkner
said. "He has to get back into
baseball shape. It's small mus-
cles in the shoulder and
elbow."

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

In a new, expanded district
this year, theVenice High soft-
ball team is learning the
"haves" from the "have nots"
as far as opponents are con-
cerned.
In six games, the Lady
Indians have only lost once to
non-district foe Riverview.
They improved their Class
5A District 12 record to 3-0
with an 11-1 mercy killing of
visiting Southeast Friday
night.
In district action so far,
Venice just got past Port
Charlotte in a close one but
then breezed past North Port
and Southeast.
More district opponents lie
ahead .this coming week.
Charlotte comes to town
Tuesday and. Lakewood
Ranch is at the Reservation on
Thursday.
Manatee and Bayshore will
come later.
, Venice has to rate as a
"have" or a district favorite
- the way it has been play-
ing.
The Lady Indians have
been getting excellent pitch-:
ing from the 1-2 punch of
Heather Laird and Heather
Boyts. Megan Watson has
been solid behind the plate.


The infield has been playing
super with Felicia Taylor and
Kayla Ellingsen at third base,
Brittany Hipple at shortstop,
Kristen Bailey at second base
and Maureen Sandidge at first
base.
Patrolling the outfield have
been Molly Brandow, Nicole
Clark, Laird, Boyts and Taylor.
Boyts was the winning
pitcher Friday, allowing two
hits and striking out six over
four innings. She is now 2-1.
Venice scored twice in the
first inning and for all purpos-
es put the game away with a
six-run second.
Hipple had a double off the
wall and Sandidge a sacrifice
fly to center in the first frame.
The two also did damage
in the second with Hipple
stinging a two-run single and
Sandidge another sacrifice fly
to center. Watson also had an
RBI single in the fateful sec-
ond.
Southeast scored a run in
the top of the fourth, but the
Lady Indians answered with
two in the bottom on an RBI
single by Courtney Bennett
and an RBI double by Crystal
Hess.
After Charlotte, the dis-
trict road will get tougher
with district contenders
Ranch and Manatee coming
up.

Celebrities love playing in Plantation Classic


Y KEliAGGERTY
CORRESPONDENT

Gentlemen, start your
engines.
That unlikely request at a
golf tournament signaled the
Friday's start of The
Plantation Community Foun-
dation Celebrity Classic at
The Plantation Golf and
Country Club.
And what a classic it was.
Now in its 18th year, the
tournament has always gath-
ered together an extraordi-
nary collection of America's
past sporting heroes includ-
ing Chuck Noll, Pee Wee
Reese (a staunch supporter in
the early days), Johnny Unitas
and Ray Nitschke. Since its
inception in 1988, the foun-
dation has continued to
expand and now annually
awards more than 40 grants
to needy and deserving citi-
zens of South Sarasota
County.
From the eldest competi-
tor this year, ex-Chicago Bear
Ernie Bonelli (born in 1919


and All-American in 1945), to
the rookies such as Mike
Trombley, who spent 11 sea-
sons pitching for the Twins,
Orioles and the Dodgers, they
revive old acquaintances and
sometimes rivalries as mem-
ories are passed around.
Fans, clutching faded color
photographs and collectors,
cards, simply can't believe
their luck as they look around
at the 60 sportsmen gathered
at the Plantation's putting
green, it was indeed shock
and "aww, my goodness. Look
who's turned up."
After the official photos
were taken early in the morn-
ing, the day began with the
easy-go-lucky Otto Graham
Memorial Putting Competi-
tion. The pairings, including
ex-Yankees Ken Clay and Tom
Tresh, 1956 first round draft
pick Earl Morrall and ex-,
Redskins Pat Richter, all stole
their way around a fiendishly-
designed course.
Inevitably the competition
had a surprise ending as
Ernie Bonelli and partner, ex-


Saturday night Vikings


SUN PHOTO BY JEFF TAVARES, jtavares@venicegondolier.com
The Venice Vikings played host to the Jensen Beach Pirates
Saturday night in Southern States Football League action.


New York Giants linebacker
AlanVanCampen, dominated
the field to snatch the top
spot.
Following lunch the more
serious affair of the shotgun
began with the celebrities
teaming up with 200 invited
guests for an armada of five-
somes that took to the Bobcat
and Panther courses in a fleet
of carts.
Afterwards, VanCampen
had nothing but praise for the
whole day and the charities it
helps.
"You don't get better than
this," he said.
Originally from Rochester,
N.Y, he now lives in Tampa,
but is thinking of finding a
bolthole in Venice. "I love it
here. The sense of communi-
ty suits me, and the courses
are great."
Like many of the former
players waiting for their
chance to show off their skills,
VanCampen's career was cut
short by injury. "I loved those
fotir years with the Giants.
But after I'd broken my ankle
for the seventh time, my doc-
tor said, 'If you want to walk
-for the rest of your life, I sug-
gest you get out of the fantasy
world and leave football.' I
worked for Xerox after I
retired, and I soon realized
what I'd had with the
Giants."
It's a sentiment reflected by
Venice resident Tom Tresh.
Although providing a
moment of concern when he
went AWOL during the
putting competition, the 1962
American League Rookie of
the Year and World Series
winner with the Yankees in
1963 (against the San Fran-
cisco Giants), Terrific Tom
was clear about his reasons
for being at the Plantation.
"This is my fourth time at
the tournament. I keep on
coming back because the peo-
ple are so professional. We're
very well looked after. I play in
a number of these events
around the country and this is
certainly one of the best.
"But when I'm not playing
tournaments like these or
attending autograph or me-
morabilia shows around the
country, I take part in base-
ball fantasy camps that many

Foundation puts on the tournarm

of the Major ball clubs orga-
nize. The guys come in from
around the country and we
have great fun.
"I miss baseball all the
time. But you know, -as we all
get older we just don't have
the tools anymore all you
have to do is look at all of us at
the Fantasy camps."
While Tresh can provide a
veteran's point of view, rookie
Bob Shaw provided a succinct
reason why tournaments
such as the Celebrity Classic
prove so popular.
An avid golfer who has
lived north of West Palm
Beach for the past 40 years,
Shaw who, while playing
for the Chicago White Sox is
perhaps best known for beat-
ing Sandy Koufax 1-0 in Game
5 of the 1959 World series -
took up the game in his.early
20s.
"I'd reached the Majors by
then and it was way of relax-
ing during the Winter
months," he said. "An old
teammate from the White
Sox, Joe Ginsberg, who lives
nearby, said to me recently I'd
have a great time if I accepted
the invitation, so here I am.
"It's a great opportunity.
You think of the guys who you
played against or with. As you
can see there a lot of ball play-
ers here who live in Florida,
but you just don't get the
opportunity to see them. This
event is a chance for us to
renew old friendships and
raise money for good causes.
I'll be back next year."
Another rookie making his
presence felt was Jim Hart,
linebacker for the Detroit
Lions in the mid-'60s. Now a
resident of North Port, Hart
brought his businesses south
from Michigan five years ago

r before heading out to play
Plantation Community
ient once a year to raise

and has often played in
celebrity tournaments in
Tampa, but the Plantation
was proving a welcome
return to home turf -
although, he said, "I'm not-
crazy about quarterbacks'
being here today, though." 4
Not a surprising senti-,
ment considering his
school, Hillsdale College in
Michigan ("A football pow-:
erhouse") still retains the.
NCAA record for a complete '
season undefeated and.
unscored against. "Nobody's'
ever done that and I'm very:
proud of that record. My'
captain, Howard Mudd, is.
now the line coach for the-
Colts and was an All-Pro for,
the Bears."
Hart picked up the sticks a:
decade ago, and now you'll
find him at Heron Creek try4
ing, as he says, not to spray'
the ball too much. a
"I simply enjoy taking part,r
the camaraderie. and o,
course the causes the
Foundation supports."
At the end of a long, hot
day, there are no outright
winners that's not the
point. As ex-Yankees pitcher
Clay said, it's a win-win situa-
tion.
"This is my third time and:
it's more play than rivalry.
We're all competitive people,
but that's not why we're here."
Perhaps the true spirit of
the Celebrity Classic can be;
summed up during the first
night's festivities. As Craig
Faulkner, Venice high School's
baseball coach was intro-
duced during the pairing
party, he received perhaps the:
biggest cheer of the night.
Sometimes even sporting;
heroes can't compete in
someone else's backyard.

Mentors making a difference at VMS


Retiree Ray Rodgers spearheaded Venice Middle School's mentor program
by teaming up Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast. In its first year,
the program has grown beyond anyone's expectations.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


It's hard to tell, from
watching mentors and stu-
dents at work in Venice
Middle School's media cen-
ter, who is getting more out of
their sessions the mentor
or the "mentee."
Students who've been
identified by the school. as
likely to benefit from mentor-


instituted "Success Camp" on
Tuesday and Thursdays,
making two teachers avail-
able in the media center to
tutor students one-on-one or
in groups from 2 to 4 p.m.
Students come and go as they
need help.
Turgeon attributes part of
his school's success to the
individual attention and
focus on reading brought by
both programs.


neighbors in the Plantation to
enlist volunteers. A visit to
Rodgers' church with Tur-
geon drew more volunteers.
Christ United Methodist
made it one of its missions.
Rodgers' goal was to
recruit 65 mentors, which he
did. The effort was almost too
successful, with more men-
tors than available students.
Forty mentors are currently in
place at VMS, having gone


phere than at any other
school."
At risk
Rodgers can relate to at-
risk youth who have a hard
time learning to read. He is
dyslexic.
"This reading program
works, and it builds self
esteem," Rodgers said. "We
try to find out what the stu-
dents do well, and feed off
that. We make sure they have
a sense of worth."
Rodgers' student at Venice
Middle is 13-year-old Josh
Boyles. Having been paired
up by BBBS since the third


Rodgers placed it right back
on Boyles for his hard work.
"He's like a grandson to
me," Rodgers said. "I go to his
baseball and football games,
play golf and tennis together
... we've gone to Ringling
Museum."
Powerhouse
It wouldn't be possible
without the assistance of
school employees who staff
the program, Rodgers said.
Ruth Shaulis and Kristin
Mikarts are literacy coaches
with offices in the library.
They help train the mentors
while Christine LaSalle, PALS


esteem and show them how
to read with children," said
Sharon Hamant of BBBS. "We
also provide periodic training
on how to detect bullying and
child abuse. They are all Big
Brothers or Big Sisters before
we match them."
BBBS coordinates back-
ground checks with the
school district, including FBI
fingerprinting and back-
ground checks with the Sara-
sota County Sheriff's Office
and Florida Department of
Motor Vehicles. In addition,
BBBS requires three refer-
ences and an extensive inter-
view process.

ing are hard at work, reading
aloud (but not too loud) at
library tables strategically
spaced apart. Mentors jump
in when an unfamiliar word
appears, and answer ques-
tions that are uniquely mid-
dle school.
They're always ready to
give an "atta boy," or a prod
here and there, if they think it
will help. The goal of both is to
improve the student's reading
skills.
Students and volunteers
meet for an hour once a week,
on Monday, Wednesday or
Friday. To fill in the gaps,

But it is the mentor pro-
gram that is unique in South
County schools.
Approachable
When Ray Rodgers first
approached Turgeon about
establishing the program,
Turgeon was ecstatic. Rod-
,gers had the energy and expe-
rience to pull together volun-
teers, having already volun-
teered in most of the area's
schools over the past 10 years.
Turgeon had the organization
and personnel to support the
effort, but few mentors.
With Turgeon's blessings,
Rodgers approached his


through school and BBBS
training and then matching
up with a student,
"No kids are waiting for a
mentor at this time," Rodgers
said.
Part of the reason the pro-
gram has blossomed, he said,
is because Venice Middle's
school leaders, teachers and
other staff are so approach-
able. It wasn't always that way,
he said.
"Years ago VMS had a
whole different attitude
toward volunteers, and espe-
cially mentors," Rodgers said.
"Today, mentors are treated

Each car can weigh no
more than 5 ounces, and
must also conform to width,
length and ground-clearance
restrictions.
Beyond that, anything
goes, and there was quite a bit
of originality among the
almost 40 participants.
Each participating scout
was presented a checkered
neckerchief, and upon com-
pletion of the races prizes
were awarded to the three top
scorers.
After the race each Cub
-Scout, along with his parents,
was photographed with his
car to give each boy a lasting
memento of this event.
The Pinewood Derby is
just one part of the fun and
excitement that is scouting.

Trophies for the first-, second- and third-place Cub Scout win-

adult with the fastest car. (Cadillac not included.)

"We give one-on-one


attention to our clients.
"We are accessible.
"We meet people's needs for
a quality home and we are
happy to build in areas other
than North Port and Port
Charlotte.
"We are also proud to

we came from, not only as
builders, but as residents of
the communities in which we
build," Nick Bonsky adds.
He chuckles, "When you are
in the market for the home of
your dreams don't rely on


someone else's vision. Create
your own work of art a
Masterpiece, courtesy of
Masterpiece Custom Homes."

Luxury waterfront condominium community nears completion


STAFF REPORT

nearing
completion
on the unique
waterfront con-
dominium development of
Peace River Preserve and its
sister project, Harbor Point on
Charlotte Harbor.
Featuring luxury condo-
miniums with resort-style


amenities, both communities
have rebounded solidly from
construction setbacks caused
by Hurricane Charley. Both
new and resale units are now
available.
Charlotte Harbor Develop-
ment LLC is building the pro-
ject. DRD Realty Group, which
specializes in premium water-
front property in Charlotte and
Lee counties, is handling the
Peace River Preserve and Har-


bor Point resale properties.
Peace River Preserve and
Harbor Point are located in the
rapidly growing area of Char-
lotte Harbor and share resort-
style community amenities,
including a large pool and spa,
clubhouse with a lounge,
catering kitchen and fitness
center. Also, pending approval
the property will feature a
modern marina with 40 slips.
On-site property manage-


ment is offered to all owners,
and flexible leasing options are
available for seasonal owners.
Peace River Preserve fea-
tures 38 waterfront residences
with views of Charlotte Harbor
and a future marina. Starting
in the $600,000s, the 1,800 to
2,500-square-foot units boast
luxury finishes such as granite
countertops, crown molding,
and solid wood cabinets. This
gated community has its own


pool and spa, and easy access
to a second pool and addition-
al amenities at neighboring
Harbor Point.
Harbor Point has 96 fully
furnished residences priced
from the $400,000s and a pool
and fully-appointed club-
house.
Property management is
located on-site through Resort
Quest and units may be rented
by owners on a weekly basis.
Both communities are con-
veniently located at 5121 Mel-
bourne Street in Charlotte
Harbor minutes to Punta
Gorda and 1-75.
Peace River Preserve and
Harbor Point are sister condo-
minium projects being devel-


oped in Charlotte Harbor by
Charlotte Harbor Develop-
ment LLC.
DRD Realty Group is a part-
nership between Dean
Degross, founder of Quality
Homes, and business expert
Marc Beshears. DRD Realty
Group is a full-service sales
and marketing firm specializ-
ing in waterfront real estate.
DRD Realty Group founders
also own and operate DRD
Development LLC and Town
Center Title, all of which are
based in Port Charlotte, Flori-
da.

Not Quite a




Venetian





Paradise



Among the multi-million
dollar high-rises and
homes lining Venice Beach,
some people are just living
day to day. Here's the story
of two of those
people.


Story and Photos by Jeff Tavares


A stack of word-puzzle books sits on the rickety picnic table
at an entrance to Venice Beach.
Two bicycles with attached baskets full of plastic containers
holding toiletries and silverware, boxes of food and flashlights
lean against each end of the table.
This is the daytime home of David, 51, and Rita, 46.
From sunrise to sunset, the married couple, who are home-
less, spend their day, every day, as they have for the last four
months.
The couple, who preferred not to use their last names, have
been homeless on and off, mostly on, since 1997.
Their life together began like most couples. Rita who was
born in Zanesville, Ohio, moved to Allegan, Michigan, 30 miles
southeast of Holland, where David was born and still residing
at the time.
Two years after the death of her husband, Rita meets David
in September 1996, and the couple is married in January 1997.
Living in a mobile home, David, a carpenter and wood-
worker, builds game-room accessories for indidduals and for
wholesale to local businesses. Although it is a modest business,
it is enough for the couple to have a life that includes what
most take for granted: a home, vehicle and other common
comforts.
In February 1997, David and Rita experience a set of cir-
cumstances that will change their lives dramatically.
David's mother, owner of the mobile home they are living in,
evicts them. David explains that his mother objects to his mar-
riage to Rita and other choices David has made in his life.
"She (his mother) made the statement to me once, she said,
'If it were up to me, David, you would never have been married
and you would never had your own family.' She holds a lot of
grudges, resentment," David explains.
Rita has a 27-year-old son she has not seen in 15 years.
David has three children froth a previous marriage. "I lost
track; I think my oldest one is 28, 29," David says matter-of-
factly.
The eviction and its aftermath
The eviction is abrupt.
"They (the police) showed up when we were in the shower
and gave us 20 minutes to get out," says David. The couple
gathers some belongings and drives off, with very little money
to their names.
"We went down to a coffee shop," Rita recalls as if it were
yesterday.
Later, the couple is allowed to collect what David estimates
was $7,000 in personal belongings, his tools and equipment.
They put their material life into a storage facility.
David recalls with emotion returning to the storage bin two
days later to find the lock broken off, and all their possessions
gone.
They are now left with a vehicle and some clothes and no
idea of what to do next.
"We were just, basically, at that time, roaming around.
Figuring out what we we're going to do," recalls David. It was
the dead of winter in Holland, Mich., where average lows are 21
degrees.


During the day the couple spends their time on the most
basic of human needs shelter.
"Just trying to find places to stay warm, if we had to, we'd go
to a department store," remembers Rita.
Sleeping outdoors is no longer an option for the couple.
David remembers the thought he carried with him each day
was: Stay warm.
From their previous "normal" life, uivth the comfort of a


David and Rita


home to come to each night and an income through their own
very' small but life-supporting business, remains one thing:
David has some credit cards that they have not used.
They use die cards for food and motels.
Months later the credit cards are "almost maxed out" and


the couple uses the remaining available balance to buy two
plane tickets to Orlando, one-way.
They are in Orlando for only three weeks when they decide
to move to Sarasota County. The decision is based on some-
thing that someone tells Rita in Orlando.'"Sarasota is a good
place for homeless people," she recalls.
In Sarasota the couple uses the resources available for the
homeless, staying at the Salvation Army. Both get jobs through
temporary-work agencies.
"We'd walk to one temp service and you had to be there at
5:30 a.m.," remembers David, "and there was no guarantee
they'd have work for you."
Over the next six years, this is the life of David and Rita.
A stable life
They continue to work through the temporary-worker
agencies and earn enough to live in motels on U.S. 41, north of
downtown Sarasota, where the rent is paid weekly.
However. wvhen the work dries up, they are homeless again.
David and Rita continue to work, and land a temporary
assignment at a beach resort on Longboat Key. It is steady
work. ,
"I did maintenance and Rita did housekeeping," says David.
They are back in a motel and living a stable life.
The manager takes a liking to the couple, and after two
months in a steady job at the resort through the temporary
agency, the manager offers David a permanent job, which he
accepts. Rita continues to work full time at the beach resort
through the temp service.
But things once again are about to turn, and turn badly for
the couple.
The manager at the beach resort is replaced by a new man-
ager. A short time later, Rita is bitten by what they say was a
recluse spider while at work. Over the next few days, it is clear
to David that she needs medical attention.
"It was three weeks before I was going to get Blue
Cross/Blue Shield at work," David vividly recalls.
David takes Rita to the hospital, where she is treated. Over
the next few days there are more visits to the hospital for treat-
ment and tests. David takes time off from work to take Rita to
her appointments.
David notifies his new manager at the beach resort about
what is going on, but he is fired.
"They fired me over the phone," he recalls.
David takes this news as another painful setback.
The move to Venice
As tourists and residents walk the boardwalk to the beach,
they pass David and Rita. They have become part of the land-
scape of Service Beach.
"People are saying 'Good Morning' and all that stuff because
we keep ourselves as clean as we possibly can ... and we
learned that from the prior life we had. Used to be, I'd take a
shower every day, if not two of them, down to nothing. The last
real shower we had was at least six or seven weeks ago," com-

Small world
I* am always amazed at
the people I meet from
Cleveland. At the Fur Ball,
Annette Caldwell intro-
duced me to Nokomis resi-
dent Ed Clark who worked
at River Terminal on 55th
and Fleet Avenue in Cleve-
land. This is right down the
street from where my mom
lives.
Ed told me he makes his
own kielbasa, gave me tips
on where to get the best
Polish food in Florida and in
return I promised to make
him some czarnina, which is
Polish duck's blood soup.


Bon appetite
Chef Jean-Pierre Pellit is
the new chief at Pelican
Pointe Country Club. He
trained in Grenoble, France,
and has worked at'the Oaks,
the Ritz Carlton and the
Colony Club on Longboat
Key. Be sure to give him a
hello when at the club.
Many readers remember
one of the favorite waiters in
town, George Pina, who used
to work at Althea's. While hav-
ing breakfast with friends
including Brooky Brown, for-
mer editor of the Venice
Gondolier Sun, I discovered
George is now working at
Ophelia's in Nokomis. He has
also opened his own Mexican


Restaurant, Compadre's, at
498 W. Dearborn St. in Engle-
wood.
Another nice surprise was
seeing Kay Martellino and
Nancy Champlin at
Ophelia's. These two ladies
are the former owners of
Althea's and have returned to
the area as the owners of the
Nokomis restaurant.
It's a girl
Judy and Tom Collins are
celebrating the birth of their
newest granddaughter, Abi-
gail Staas. Helping welcome

Passions enrich our lives


VIRGINIA DEUPREE
G UST COLUMNIST


Do you remember when
you were about 19, 20 or 21
and you were very passionate
about something or other?
The passion of all the young
athletes participating in the
winter Olympic Games were
portrayed recently in the
opening ceremonies. My
daughter had to fix herself
peanut butter and jelly sand-
wiches in the lab at lunchtime
all five years of graduate
school just to sustain her pas-
sion for learning how the
brain worked.
My granddaughter is
spending her junior year of
college in the Dominican
Republic. I cannot resist quot-
ing from her e-mail that she
sent to a family member of
the passion she felt about the
island.
"So despite all my travel-
ing, living in the city of Santo
Domingo is an experience
unlike any I have ever had.
Everywhere I've been I've
mostly just experienced the
beauty, here I am living it all...
the beauty, the passion, right
along side with the pain and
the suffering. Beauty is an
interesting concept here in
the city because it's not some-
thing witnessed on the sur-
face. For me, I've learned to
19ok1 for the sm#ll things,
things that I would have oth-
erwise overlooked and under-
appreciated; people chilling
in the park, dancing on the
street corners, a stack of col-
orful plastic chairs, flowers
sitting in oil cans, morning


fruit stands, and the children.
The view of palm trees and
Caribbean Sea that I live next
to is undoubtedly beautiful.
Ironically it's this exquisite
beauty that has been taken
advantage of to turn this
Caribbean island into a care-
free paradise; that which it is
not for the people living
under the wrath of poverty.
The music is one beautiful
thing, the main thing that
everyone relates to. Its pas-
sion and spirit are everywhere
and transgress all class
boundaries. As of these
months, the music that is, has
entered into my bloodstream
so that I too tap my foot to the
beat or sing aloud in the pub-
lic cars and buses even
though I don't know the
words. But beyond the music,
the noises are a very domi-
nant part of daily life. I have
grown accustomed to shouts,
honking horns and the little
rhythms that have become
part of my daily life."
I so enjoy writing this col-
umn but I could not have
done so in the past year with-
out the help of Helen, Jeanne
and Nancy, who have orga-
nized my rambling thoughts,
nor without Tory, my high
school student, her mother
Ann and her grandmother
Barbara, who do the typing on
the computer and send it on
to my sons to check it over to
make sure I don't go off the
deep end. All of these people,
as well as my sons and daugh-
ter, seem to be rather passion-
ate about supporting me in
my late-life writing. And I am
passionate about .the com-
ments that some of you make
about my column.

Majority of seniors will

need LTC insurance


Dear Savvy Senior,
Is long-term care insurance a
good idea? My wife and I aren't
rich by any means, but what we
do have we'd like to leave to our
kids, not to some over-priced
nursing home. What can you tell
me? Alive and Kicking
Dear Alive,
Long-term care (LTC)
insurance is expensive and
risky, but depending on your
assets and health history, it's
a good thing to consider.
Here's what yqu should know.
Is it for you?
With the rising cost of
nursing home care, averaging
about $70,000 per year, LTC
insurance, which covers
nursing home care, assisted
living and in-home care, can
be a smart option for many
people. Is it right for you?
Here are some things to con-
sider:
Finances: LTC insurance
makes the most sense for the
middle class (assets between
$100,000 and $2 million).
People below this level prob-
ably can't afford the premi-
ums and can fall back on
Medicaid, and those above it
can afford LTC on their own.
Remember that Medicare
and Medicare supplemental


(Medigap) policies do not
pay LTC expenses.
Health: In most cases it's
disease (like Alzheimer's and
stroke), not old age that puts
people in nursing homes.
What's your family history of
these?
Risks: Believe it or not,
your chances of needing LTC
are high. In fact, nearly 60
percent of Americans over
age 65 will need LTC at some
point in their lives.
LTC tips
LTC insurance is notori-
ously confusing and very
expensive. A 65-year-old in
good health can expect to
pay between $2,000 and
$3,000 a year for a policy, but
by buying earlier (in your
50s) you can save big on your
premiums. Here are some of
the different features and
options you should know
about:
Daily benefit: How much
coverage you get should
depend on the kind of care
you want and where you'll
receive it (prices vary
depending on where you
live). Get only what you need
or can afford.
Inflation protection: If
you think nursing homes are
expensive now, just wait. The
average costs are expected to
quadruple by 2030, so get a
policy with 5 percent per year
inflation protection.
Policy coverage: Policies
that cover nursing home
care, in-home care, assisted-
living facilities and adult day
care are the best but also the
most expensive. If this does-
n't fit your budget, get a plan
that covers only nursing
home care and assisted living
facilities, which are your two

The "new look" of the Great
White Golf Course was re-
cently unveiled at the famed
Doral Golf Resort & Spa. The
Great White is one of five'
championship golf courses at
the resort. A Greg Norman
design, the refined course
was officially reopened on
December 6, 2005. Norman's
use of coquina as a primary
design element makes Great
White the only course of its
kind. The course also incorpo-
rates hundreds of palm trees,
Scoutish-ityle bunkers and
water on 14 of the 18 holes,
which combine to make the
course challenging and excep-
tional. The resort is also home
of the famed Blue Monster Golf
Course and the PGA TOUR's
Ford Championship at Doral.
