There's little visible opposition to the extension of the 1-mill school property tax up for a vote
next month, but this voter's sentiments are expressed in an altered version of the signs sup-
porting the measure.


Sarasota County orders
"Keep the Promise of
Tomorrow" school
referendum signs
removed from rights
of way.

BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Complaints about school
referendum signs popping up
on public rights of way and in
front of businesses that didn't
authorize them have led to a
mini crackdown on offending
signs.
On Feb. 16 county code
enforcement officers per-
formed a sweep of U.S. 41
looking for "Keep the Promise
of Tomorrow" signs, in the
right of way.
The number and location
of signs were documented by
officers, who then placed a
call to Carl Weinrich, chair of


Citizens for Better Schools,
organizers of the "Keep the
Promise of Tomorrow" cam-
paign.
Weinrich directed contrac-
tors to remove all of the signs
from the right of way and pro-
vided code enforcement offi-
cers with a contact number in
the event some of the signs
were missed.
Code officers in all of the
remaining zones have been
instructed to look for referen-
dum signs throughout the
county and to contact Wein-
rich to arrange for their re-
moval, according to code offi-
cer Stacey Garecht.
On Feb. 21, Garecht rein-
spected the signs on U.S. 41
and "observed that they were
removed from the right of
way areas," according to an el-
mail to Sarasota County Com-
missioner Shannon Staub.
Signs in support of the
March referendum were paid
for and installed by Citizens
for Better Schools, a citizens


advocacy group supporting
the 1-mill education tax.
No taxpayer dollars
Sarasota County School
Board officials also received
complaints and forwarded
them on to CBS.
"I've asked (CBS) to check
the noted sign locations to
determine if they are indeed
in the right of way and move
them if needed," said associ-
ate superintendent and chief
financial officer Bob Earley,
responding to an e-mail com-
plaint from Walt Augustino-
wicz, vice chair of the Lib-
ertarian Party of Florida.
Augustinowicz was con-
cerned about running a fair
campaign. He complained
about signs that appeared on
State Road 776 between Ven-
ice and Englewood, on U.S.
41 Bypass in Venice, and Os-
prey.

The road-building
process has many
factors, but speed
isn't one of them.

BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

EDITOR'S NOTE: With thou-
sands moving to Florida each
month, expanding our road sys-
tems is a never-ending struggle for
local governments. The following
story begins a three-part series,
that shows how counties plan and
build road projects.

There are dozens of miles
of asphalt to be laid through-
out Sarasota and Charlotte
counties in the coming dec-
ades.
Some of those roads will be
thought of at community
meetings; others are already
on future land use maps.
The process to get the road
from someone's mind to
where someone is actually
driving on it can be long, cost-
ly and annoying.
Road projects are the epit-
ome of government bureau-
cracy and Charlotte County
Public Works Director Tom
O'Kane said the permitting
process can delay a project
months and even years.
Sarasota County Adminis-
trator Jim Ley said some
efforts are being made to
speed up the process, but he
admits they will only go so far.
Going through phases
The first and potentially
longest phase of getting a
road built is the political
phase..
"That is the drawing of the
line on a map," Ley said. "This
first level of political canibe 15
years before: a road is actual
built. But it is an important
part of the process."


Earth excavators, concrete piping and construction barricades
bring traffic to a crawl along Center Road in Venice. County
road-widening projects have become the .norm throughout the
are.


After years of deciding
whether a road is needed,
where it should be put and
getting enough of the com-
munity behind it, the political
will must also follow through
on funding.
Once the project is within
the county's Five-Year Capital
Improvement Program, the
design phase can begin.
Designing a project is just
that figuring out where the
road will go, what it will look
like and what impacts it will
have on the neighborhood
and the environment.
This is also when most of
the so-called right of way or
land is purchased.
The design process can
take between 12 months and
24 months, because much of
it relies on the necessary per-
mitting before proceeding
with construction.
Those permits must come
from the county's own de-
partments, the Florida De-
partment of Transportation,
U.S. Army Corps of En-
gineers, Southwest Florida
Water Management District,


Florida Department of En-
vironmental Protection, U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service and
any other state or federal
agency that wants a say.
"It is a never-ending bite of
the apple," O'Kane said. "It's
the way things happen and
there is nothing you can do to
speed up the process."
The actual construction
phase is one of the shortest
phases in the entire process,
but one that can create the
most trouble with communi-
ty relations.
After putting a project out
for bid, a construction com-
pany is selected from the low-
est bidders. Work typically
starts within a month or two
of the final approval of the
contract.
O'Kane said that by the
time a road actually starts
construction, most people
are angry it isn't completed.
"It is an issue of under-
standing the process and
explaining it as well as you
can," he said.

Believe it or not, Venice has
a movie theater opening Fri-
day.
"We will be up and run-
ning on March 3 and we have
a great lineup of movies for
the opening," 'said an excited
Chris Dugger, vice president
of business development for
Frank Theaters.
The manager is Kurt Reg-
enhardt and employees will
number around 35, con-
firmed Dugger. Following
several changes, the final de-
cision on the name is Galleria
Stadium 11. It is in the Gal-
leria Plaza at the junction of
Alligator Drive and Tamiami
Trail, to the rear of the British
Open Pub.
The plaza was acquired by
Waterford Companies in May
2004 for $5 million and is
being remodeled. The final
curtain for the former Vene-
tian 6 Movie Theaters, which
stood in Venetian Plaza now
home to Lowe's, came very
quietly and two days earlier
than planned on Labor Day.
Doors were closed on Sat-
urday, Sept. 3, as the threat of
the approaching Hurricane
Francis saw premises being
boarded up and residents
staying home.

Frank Capocci, a part-time resident of Bird Bay from
Westchester, N.Y., has been watching the progress of the
movie theater daily and Monday had an opportunity to try out
the high-back swivel seats. "It's too bad they did away with the
other one, but I'm excited for this opening and I will be here
Friday before I leave next morning for New York," said Capocci.


In a story in the Gondolier
Sun on July 13, 2005, Bruce
Frank confirmed the city of
Venice was to have a new
movie theater with 800 seats,
financed jointly by Frank
Theaters andWaterford Com-
panies, to be built on the site
of the former Kash n' Karry
Supermarket and Gold's Gym.
Since the announcement,
new tenants that have taken
space in the plaza for the res-
urrection of a movie theater


in Venice include People's
Bank, Homes & Dreams Real-
ty and the soon-to-be-open-
ed Green Diamond Pub.

Hurricane Charley in 2004
knocked Helen Elian out of
her Punta Gorda home.
Then she was shipped off
to an Englewood shelters for
months and months, until
finally finding a home at
Grove Terrace Apartments in
Venice.
Anyone who tries to pry
her out of South County's
only public housing complex
in favor of redevelopment will
have to do it with her kicking
and screaming.
"If anyone tries to get me
out of that apartment, I will
refuse," Elian told city council
members Tuesday night.
"That is my permanent
home. I'm not leaving."
Venice Housing Authority
chair Richard Appell and
VHAs team of consultants led
a presentation for city council
detailing how Grove Terrace
apartments will be expanded
from the 50 low-income units
there now to as many as 144.
VHA applied Feb. 1 for Low-
Income Housing Tax Credit
financing with the Florida
Housing Finance Corp. It will
find out in August if tax cred-
its will be awarded to finance
Phase 1 of its redevelopment
project at a cost of $11.3 mil-


lion.
The appearance came fol-
lowing numerous complaints
by Grove Terrace residents,
citizens and some council
members about the redevel-
opment process., Members of
the VHA Residents Council
claim they have been exclud-
ed, and at least two city coun-
cil members are questioning
the quality of the project's
design.
VHA Executive Director
Peter Lopez resigned five
weeks early Feb. 22 following
revelations he suggested
using evictions to "whittle
down" the number of low-
income residents in order to
make the deal more financial-
ly feasible for developers,
according to one of his e-
mails.
Appell and the VHA board
will continue accepting appli-
cations for a new executive
director until March 12, in
hopes of naming a replace-
ment by the end of March.
Council member Rick Tacy,
the former city liaison toVHA,
said denial of the application
for the $11.3 million may be a
blessing in disguise, so the
project can be scrapped and
started all over. Tacy pointed
out how land-swap deals for a

I LOTTO I


From the March 8, 1997, Venice Gondolier Sun


BY STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER


The Nokomis Fire Depart-
ment wants Sarasota County
to pay for its assistance on
emergency medical calls.
Commissioners could de-
cide Tuesday whether the
volunteer department should
be compensated $42,500 for
its first response on EMS calls.
The Nokomis department
support itself Omougbolux-
tary contributions and feels


the county should help them
out. With the recent absorp-
tion of the South Venice
Volunteer Fire Department
into the county's fire depart-
ment, the Nokomis depart-
ment is the last volunteer
department in the county.
According to Alan (Mac)
McEwen, the Nokomis de-
partment's CEO, the majority
of the volunteer department's
calls are giving support to
, cotapi 9gibulppster ,I fpe
August 1996 letter to former


Commissioner Gene Mat-
thews, McEwen said the
number of EMS assists had
"soared" and represented 60
percent of the department's
total dispatches.
"We shall continue to work
with the county and support
all aspects of fire department
duties, but we need help for
the ensuing year," McEwen
wrote. "The EMS calls are tak-
ing a large part of our donated
budget with no return from
the county budget."
I ,Cunty' Fire Chief John
Albritton, however, does not


support compensating the
volunteer department.
In a report to the board,
Albritton said EMS services
are increasing nationwide
and described the responses
as "routine" services provided
by fire departments.
"We believe the level of
first-responder services is
the minimum that should be
provided by every fire de-
partment as a public service
to the citizens of the com-
munity," Albritton said.

Top police chief candidates are announced


City manager "struggles" with recommendations
because of quality applicants.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR
Most people welcome the
idea of too many choices.
City Manager Marty Black
was kept awake much of
Monday night because of-just
that. Black had to select the
best two candidates for Ven-
ice Police Department chief
by Tuesday's city council
meeting.
The final cut includes
. Stephen Canfield, retired chief
of Central Broward County,
and Julie Williams, retired
assistant chief of Lansing,
Mich. Both candidates live in
Florida.
Council members will con-
duct one-on-on-one interviews
during March. Black hopes a
replacement to the retiring
Jim Hanks, whose last official
day was Tuesday, can be
named by the end of March.
The possibility Venice
could have its first female
police chief is not an issue,
according to Black.
"It was hard to get down to
the two," Black said. "Their
presence and personality set
them apart ... All the candi-
dates are supremely quali-
fied. I have every confidence,
whether it's a male or female."
Following in-person inter-
views last week, all six candi-
dates were required to write a
three to four page response
to last year's Matrix Report
that was highly critical of
police management, organi-
zation and leadership.
Those responses were
what set Canfield and Wil-
liams apart from the rest,
according to Black.
The city manager said
their responses offered in-
sights into their potential
-mainagement styles-,intideal-
^o 5ti't,


ing with a police department
in need of change.
"I wasn't looking for some-
one who would come in and
just beat the drum, 'You have
to do better,' Black said.
Canfield: Leadership
and morale
All of the candidates keyed
in to the parts of the Matrix
Report citing problems with
leadership and moral.
Canfield highlighted three
key areas and offered these
suggestions:
Administrative review of
records VPD has a set of
policies in place, but a "lack
of supervisory review involv-
ing many of these proce-
dures." Canfield outlined a
seven-step process that cul-
minates in a staff inspections
process conducted on an
annual basis.
u Employee morale 30
VPD employees did not re-
turn their surveys; those who

also said the department
must address "matters with
legal implications."
Here are the highlights
from her report:
Legal implications -
Williams would work to
remedy "commingled inter-
nal affairs records with per-
sonnel records." She would
meet with the city attorney
and administrative services


director, review proper legal
procedures and put those
procedures into place.
Williams also suggests two
types of computer software
popular for record manage-
ment.
Accreditation A six-
step process of meetings and
reviews to reobtain accred-
itation. She would require
weekly updates on the ac-
creditation process.


Poor morale This is
the result of "a plethora of
factors and circumstances"
related to a lack of support,
innovation, communication
and accessibility by com-
mand staff, according to the
report, "as well as command
staff's inconsistent and in-
flexible manner of dealing
with issues and personnel."

North Venice growth



balloons to 9,000 homes


Saying goodbye


'The Bridges'
development project
unveiled by GCCFY
while city planner
shows where all the
new people will drive.

BY JJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Remember that estimate of
7,000 new homes in Norm
Venice?
Scrap that and start plan-
ning on '9,000 or more living
units along Laurel Road.
Venice City Council lis-
tened to a pair of presentaL
tons on potential redevelopL
ment along Knights Trail,
Laurel and Border roads to

newest part of the city. I

rector Tom Slaughter mapped.
out transportation and land
use plans for the more than
1,000 acres of mostly undevel-
oped farm land. Slaughter
showed how the Knights Trail
and Laurel intersection will
become the major commer-
cial center for North Venice,
and detailed all of the new

roads to handle the city's
newest residents.
This prompted council
member John Moore to ask if
predictions of 7,000 homes.
along Laurel Road was an
accurate prediction. Slaught-
er said his estimate is closer to
9,000 new living units within
the next 10-15 years.
City Manager Marty Black
emphasized that level of
development will only occur
with the proper transporta-
tion improvements.
"If the improvements
aren't there, the development
can't occur," Black said.
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice Pres-
ident and CEO Teri Hansen
unveiled, one of the higher
profile developments of
North Venice, which will be
called The Bridges. The chari-
table organizations develop-
ment of 146 acres between
Laurel and Border roads aims
to provide workforce housing,
single-family homes and
commercial properties.
But more than anything
else, it appears as if GCCFV
has pulled together nearly
every landowner in North
Venice to help create a unified
vision for the new mini-city.
A series of workshops were
held in which more than
three dozen developers shar-
ed their opinions on how to
interconnect their individual
properties. The Bridges prop-
erty will provide land heeded
for collector roads to turn
Knights Trail and Laurel into a
major intersection.
At that intersection will be
a major industrial park, shop-
ping center, 20-screen movie
theater and multifamily
housing, most likely develop-
ed by Waterford Companies.


"We are trying to bring a
mixed-use, mixed-income
development into the area to
benefit everyone," Hansen
said. "We set out to design a
community everyone would
want to live in."
All of this talk of GCCFV's
development in North Venice
is happening with the land
still outside of.city limits. The
city manager continues lead-
ing preannexation negotia-
tions to guarantee portions of
GCCFV's property are dedi-
cated to workforce housing.
Unlike low-income and
affordable housing, there are
no national, accepted stan-
dards about what defines
workforce housing, forcing
the city and GCCFV to create
their own.
Venice has offered to waive
one-third of the "extraordi-
nary impact" fee of $1,760 on
homes that meet one or all
three requirements, suggest-
ed by the city. For each one of
these stipulations met, the
city would waive one-third
($587) of the impact fee:
Waive one-third of im-
pact fees ($587) if the home is
sold to a city of Venice
employee or person em-
ployed by a Venice-based
business.
Another third if the
home's value or rental cost is
at or below 80 percent of the
median housing price.
1* Family income is at or
below 120 percent of the
mediann income for Sarasota
County.
No decision has been
reached, and both sides
remain in negotiations.
"There is no single defini-
tion, no state definition,
which has made this diffi-
cult," Black said.

'Forward, not backward' meets 'Back to the Future'


Supporters of the NeXt
Generation Learning
Plan face the perennial
Back to Basics
movement.
BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Elections are won and lost
based on campaign slogans
designed to capture the
essence of a movement in a
single, memorable phrase.
Referendum 2006, the March
14 vote to continue the 1-mill
education tax in Sarasota
County another four years, is
no different.
Citizens for Better Schools
has adopted "Keep the
Promise of Tomorrow," pro-
moting one's duty to do right
by children by supporting
education. Sarasota County
School Board adopted "Let's
move forward, not back-
ward," reflecting a desire to
keep existing programs in
place that otherwise might
disappear if the referendum
fails, and promotes the need
to boost technology in the
classroom.
But there is another, qui-
eter movement the "Back
to Basics" movement at
work in the greater Venice
area. A hodgepodge of cur-
rent and former educators
and political gadflies support
moving school children into
the future by going back to
the basics and emphasizing
core subjects like reading,
writing and arithmetic.
They're names are familiar
to any Sarasota County
School Board member or


county commissioner. People
like Joe Fink, Norm Lupo,
Alan Kunerth and Herb
Levine take their politics seri-
ously. They take democracy to'
a level above your average
voter by regularly letting local
politicians and county ad-
ministrators know what they
think they're doing wrong
and how to improve local
government.
Program parade
Herb Levine, president of
the Venice Taxpayers League,
is already on
record oppos-
ed to the ref-
erendum.
Surprisingly,
it's not be-
cause contin-
uing the 1-
mill educa-
fion tax will
Levine cut into his
members'
income, but because he dis-
agrees with what he perceives
as a perennial parade of pro-
grams based upon the latest
education fads.
"It's really not about the
money, it's about the waste,"
Levine said. "It's about kids
not being able to read, write
and do math. When I go into
the local grocery store and my
bill comes to $4.02, for exam-
ple, I would give the cashier a
five dollar bill plus two cents
so I can get a dollar back and
not have all that change in my
pocket. But I have to go to the
older checkout cashier be-
cause the young ones can't
count. They just give me back
all the change. They can't do
simple math in their head
because they are so used to
using calculators and com-
puters."
Educator Lynn Reifert,
owner of The Study Center in


Venice, has the same con-
cern.
"Is it OK if no one knows
how to do simple mathemat-
ics without using a calcula-
tor?," she
asks.
"Technology
seems to be
making the
world a better
place, for the
most part.
However,
could a
Reifert downside be
that as we
become more dependent on
artificial intelligence, we are
sacrificing human intelli-
gence?"
"It is possible that educa-
tors today are skipping some
valuable steps along the way
by not requiring young stu-
dents to practice and master
these basic skills that call for
mental effort?
"You have to work brain.
Research says every time you
work hard to solve a problem,
it works the brain and grows
it. That's important if you ever
plan on using your own brain
and nota computer." ,
Cramming
More important, says
Reifert, is our schools are try-
ing to cram too much into the
classroom experience.
"Part of what's going on,
and how we differ from other
countries, is we emphasize
quantity and not quality," she
said.
Reifert points to one study
that attempted to figure out
why Japanese students per-
formed so much better on
math' that Americans. What
struck her was the size of stu-
dent textbooks. The Amer-
ican textbook was thick; Jap-
anese students used a thin al-


gebra book.
"Japan's teachers teach
students to think," Reifert
said, "and to solve problems.
They're not just feeding pu-
pils the information. The
whole point is the American
system is trying to cram so
much in that they are not
making sure their students
have mastered the basics.
"If they would just hold off
until the later grades (on high
stakes testing and using tech-
nology), and not push'itoff on
elementary grades ... We are
teaching youth to rely on
technology to solve their
problems."
(Mis)perception of bloat
Like Levine, she sees no
correlation between the
amount of money poured
into the education system
and student performance. A
seasoned educator, Reifert
agrees with Levine that public
,education has become over-
regulated, requiring an ever-
growing administrative army
to process forms and paper-
work.
No matter how they try, it's
a claim the school district
can't seem to shake.
Sarasota County School
District has one of the lower
administra-
-.. tive to student
ratios in the
a' state, but that
4, doesn't jibe
With Levine's
gut feeling.
He doesn't be-
lieve the dis-
trict data.
Todd School
board presi-
dent Carol Todd calls it a mis-
perception that permeates
the school community.
"It even comes up in the
master level classes I teach.


It's an issue everywhere," she
said.
Todd points to Florida
Department of Education
stats that show Sarasota
County ranks 63 out of 67
school districts, indicating
the district has some of the
fewest district level adminis-
trators per student (1:900).
Sarasota County School
District ranks as the county's
largest employer, with more
than 5,000 employees serving
40,000 students under 7 mil-
lion square feet of facilities on
a budget two-thirds of a bil-
lion annually.
"It's a huge system. That's
why it's vitally important that
administrators run it effi-
ciently and effectively."


In addition, Todd said the
district contracts out some of
its services just so they don't
become a permanent burden
on the district.
"The data speaks for itself.
I respect everyone's opinion,
but we make decisions based
on facts, not opinions," Todd
said.
Brow beaten
A special education teach-
er in McKay schools for the
last four years, Reifert calls
the paperwork required on
behalf of special needs stu-
dents mindboggling.

SARASOTA COUNTY BRIEFS


Pinebrook extension delayed again


Public hearing on East
Venice Avenue plan
The Sarasota County
Planning Commission will
hold a public hearing to
consider the East Venice
Avenue plan at 6:30 p.m.
Thursday, March 2, in com-
mission chambers at the
Robert L. Anderson Ad-
ministration Center, 4000
South Tamiami Trail, Venice.
The East Venice Avenue
plan resulted from three
workshops that began in
December 2005 with resi-
dents to discuss the future of
the East Venice Avenue area.
The purpose of the plan is
to provide a framework for
the preservation, planning
and development of proper-
ties along the road.

larger development were
ignored by Lopez because he
didn't want to miss the Feb. 1
application deadline..
"When it comes to this
project, I'm rather disap-
pointed,". Tacy said. "I don't
think we're getting the best
project we could have there."
Appell and Chip Cornell of
Picerne Development em-
phasized that all designs are
in the conceptual stage.
Cornell said the new struc-
tures could be made of con-
crete block, not out of wood
frames as originally proposed.
Several city officials have
suggested the design is sub-
standard and more closely
resembles a warehouse than a
housing development.
"I have problems with both
the layout and building with-
wood," said council member
Bill Wilson, the city liaison to
VHA. "I know insurance, and
wood has lots of mainte-
nance"
Residents Council presi-
dent Carter Canada present-
ed a packet of material detail-
ing the concerns of most resi-
dents at Grove Terrace.
In addition to exclusion
from the! planning process
and questionable design,
Canada said the residents are

program. VHA's plan gives
rental vouchers to residents to

What happens if federal
funding is cut once again

Canada asked city council. He
wants a redevelopment plant
than doesn't relocate all of
VHA's residents.
"The point is, am I going to
let Mary Smith and these
other nice, older women be
sent out of here thinking
they'll have a voucher for the
rest of their lives, when
Congress is looking to cut the
program?" Canada said.
"They're going to be in Miami

is going on."

Plans and forms and compli-
ances, but there has got to be
a balance. This has gotten way
out of hand.
"When it comes right down
to it, they need to put money
toward getting good quality
teachers."
Reifert admits that raising
teacher salaries is important
to attain that goal, but says
throwing more money at edu-
cation isn't the answer.
"I have found over the
years it seems that even the
best educators get brow beat-
en by the system. They care so
much, and see what's going
on all the waste, bureau-
cracy and politics they just
get out of the profession.
Their heart is not in it. It
becomes just a job to them. It
doesn't seem logical to me
that money can solve this
problem. It goes much deeper
than that."

causing more delays.
It's hoped the engineering
certification process can be
started by the end of March.
Then it has to be approved by
the Sarasota County.
"I would not even want to
guess when we would expect
the junction to be open, but
hopefully by May or June",
said Rodgers.
The timing process will be
easier to tell once the traffic
signals are installed.

nell, land development ser-

He said it should have

the contractor is strictly at the

ing for everything.
A set of plans for the sig-
nalization of the junction was
approved last week and the
contractor will be putting in
the bases for the signals.

Coordinating the under-
ground and above-ground
utilities and clearing the land
are usually the first things
done.
"It's an amazing conflu-
ence of growth management
politics, constituency politics,
money politics and then the
process of actually designing
and building the thing takes
its own political will," Ley
said. "It is sometimes amaz-
ing we actually get any roads
built at all with all of the
obstacles in the way."
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Shannon Staub said
the process is what it is and
there is very little anyone can
do to speed it up.


"It has always taken atleast
seven years to get a road
built," Staub said. "That
seems to be up to about nine
years now. It just takes time."
Ley said he has told
Sarasota County Public Works
Director Jim Harriott to create
a sense, of urgency in his
department.
"Get it done as fast as you
can because every extra
month costs you more," Ley
said. "We have to keep all of
the parts moving."
O'Kane said he has
invoked the same urgency in
his staff.
Costs for everything, in-
cluding labor, supplies and
land, have risen so dramati-


call in the past few years that
any delays can costs thou-
sands and potentially mil-
lions.
The increases mean pro-
jects need to be pushed back
when the available money
does not go as far as antici-
pated.
"We are going to have to
make some tough decisions,"
Staub said. "Any project not
already started will be
delayed."
Ley said the irony is that
.projects will cost more and
more money with any new
delays;in the process.

OUR VIEW



Florida can curb highway deaths with strong effort


More than 3,000 motorists are killed
each year on Florida's roads and high-
ways. Except for their families, does
anyone care? '
We tend to take highway deaths for grant-
ed, consider crash deaths as normal. Why?
Our state's annual highway death toll is
higher than the number of those who died on
Sept. 11. More people died on Florida roads
in the past 12 months than the number of
U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq in the past three
years.
Some citizens and politicians complain
about how we are spending hundreds of bil-
lions a year to avoid another terrorist attack
here in America and in the war in Iraq. Those
lives matter. Motorists' apparently do not.
More than 40,000 people are expected to
die on U.S. roads this year. Sadly, very few
officials seem to notice. Apparently 40,000
broken, lifeless bodies tossed on gumeys has


become an acceptable number, unless it is
someone in our own family. Then we grieve
and become angry.
Veteran traffic experts say our high death
toll, plus tens of thousands of painful, crip-
pling injuries, could be sharply reduced'if, as
a state and nation, we want to ,make the
effort.
Crashes are most often blamed on drivers.
"Nonsense," says Chad Dornsife, director
of the Best Highway Safety Practices Institute
in California, who points to a study by the
National Highway Traffic Safety Adminis-
tration and the AAA Safety Foundation.
That study concludes more than a third of
the deaths in crashes occurred at intersec-
tions with confusing lanes, blind spots and
inadequate signs.
Unfortunately, too little money is being
spent on engineering studies and on road
and intersection improvements in Florida.


Not enough is done to make Interstate 75
safer.
One could conclude these deaths and
injuries don't matter to citizens or politicians,
regardless of what they say. You can't elimi-
nate deaths by talking. Action is required.
Studies show trained traffic engineers
know what to do. They say less blame should
be placed on drivers, and more attention
paid to creating safer roads and intersec-
tions.
Even if a third of those involved in crashes
were drunk, sleepy or otherwise impaired,
the lives of the remaining 2,000 might be
spared.
Significant life-saving projects have been
developed and tested for 10 years in
Michigan and for a shorter span in Wis-
consin. In both states, the AAA teamed up
with governmental agencies.
Engineers in Detroit and Grand Rapids


first identified four dangerous intersections,
using police and insurance company rec-
ords. The engineers conducted on-site stud-
ies, then made changes that produced posi-
tive results.
Now 200 intersection flaws have been cor-
rected in Michigan, and 200 more are being
studied, according to Dick Miller of Michigan
AAA. Since the project was launched, that
state's crashes have been reduced by 25 per-
cent and injuries cut by 40 percent. Similar
efforts are under way in Milwaukee and
Madison, Wis.
It is time for the people of Florida to
decide that producing 3,000 deaths and
thousands of crippled or painfully injured
individuals is unacceptable. Michigan and
Wisconsin have proved crashes can be pre-
vented. We can do it too.
What we must do is convince politicians
they can reduce deaths.

ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST


Flying high: Runways
may be expensive
A five-year plan update for
the Federal Aviation Adminis-
tration is currently under way.
Fred Watts, airport manag-
er, told me that the runways
at the airports are deteriorat-
ing and need resurfacing or
repair.
There are two main run-
ways: 4-22 runs from the
northeast near the Circus
Bridge to the southwest and
out over the beach; 13-31
runs from the southeast to
the northwest and aims
planes over the neighbor-
hoods at the south end of
Harbor Drive if they leave to
the northwest or over South
Venice.
It is those planes that draw
complaints from the neigh-
bors unless the pilots bank
left toward the gulf at the edge
of the residential area. Pilots
are encouraged to do so by
the Venice Aviation Society.
While I was walking at
about 6 p.m. five of seven
planes departing did not, in-
cluding one noisy jet that flew
up over Harbor Drive.
A person long involved
with aviation who asked not
to be named said, in his judg-
ment, the runways might
require "rebuilding." Part of
his thinking, which has not
been confirmed by the airport
manager, is that larger jets,
such as the Gulfstream 5 now
based at the airport, weigh
50,000 pounds, plus up to
10,000 pounds of fuel, and
more for passengers, bag-
gage, etc. More jets may be
used in the future.
If indeed rebuilding is need-
ed, his conservative estimate of
the cost for each runway, about
5,000 feet each, runs $8 mil-
lion-$10 million. He cautioned
that these are estimates tak-
ing into account current con-
crete costs of almost $5 million,
plus estimates for base, labor
and profit and might well be
low.
Other local aviation partic-
ipants tell me they doubt the
FAA will be willing to support
such costs for two runways at


a general aviation airport like
Venice. The decision the city
may need to make and
here citizens should take a
considerable interest is
whether to repair, resurface
or rebuild 4-22, the more
neighborhood-friendly run-
way, or 13-31, which now has
some navigational equip-
ment. These planning meet-
ings and the city council deci-
sions will affect many people.
High-handed: 'That's
what we brought
you into office for'
In my Feb. 15 column I
mentioned that council
member John Simmonds
"seems to feel he needs to be
a cheerleader for certain
issues particularly those
supported by the local politi-
cal bosses, the Citizens for
Quality Government."
Mr. Simmonds, in a letter
to the editor, read my letter as
implying he "supported ac-
tions that might be consid-
ered improper." I did not
mean that or say it. I was re-
ferring specifically to remarks
he made supporting a pro-
posal developer Mike Miller is
expected to propose for a'
mixed use project between
Tampa and East Venice ave-
nues.
In remarks that precipitat-
ed my observation, Mr. Sim-
monds, at the public meeting,
laboriously read a list of high-
ly undesirable kinds of uses
that current zoning might
permit, pointing ,out we
should be glad Mr. Miller was
speaking of nicer things -
obviously a sales pitch for the,
Miller plans, (including a
seven-story condominium
hotel my comment).
The list seemed improba-
ble and forced, since the land
in question seems to be worth
$1 million an acre or more.
Mr. Simmonds wrote that
if "there are political bosses, I
don't know who they are." I
listed nine individuals who
contributed 80 percent of the
funds given to the Citizens for
Quality Government in .the
last quarter of 2005.
The list included Mrs. Mil-
ler; three members of the
Boone law firm, which repre-
sents his development inter-
ests; former council member
Dave Farley, who announced
an interest in investing in a
Miller project; and former
Mayor Merle Graser, among
others.
Does this development-
related money given to city
council campaigns raise any

A question of choices, but not without a plan


Venice has a community
plan and works diligently to
ensure that areas within the
city reflect its strategic vision
and values. A recent opinion
column suggests the city is
operating without a plan.
Let's look at the reality of
Venice's efforts.
In 1989 the city adopted a
comprehensive plan with
state approval that included
input from the public, county
and other agencies. Part of
that plan outlines the specific
areas that would have sub-
stantial impacts on our city
and areas that Venice should
seek to serve so that the city
could direct the quality of
development likely to occur.
The plan was created with
our regional partners; reflect-
ed the realities of approvals
that were occurring outside
the city; and called for city
control over the Laurel Road
corridor.
The annexation of these
areas has its roots more than
30 years ago in the city's
desire to relocate the city's
wastewater plant off its envi-
ronmentally fragile and
potentially hazardous loca-
tion on Venice Beach to its
current site on 1-75.
The city's vision and plan
for the Laurel Road area is in
stark contrast to the one in
place under county authority.
Sarasota County's adopted
plan identified the predomi-
nant land use for the area
between the Myakka River
and 1-75 for a mix of industri-
al and high-intensity com-


mercial land uses with resi-
dential densities up to at least
13 units per acre.
For more than six years the
city's vision has been to estab-
lish a gradually decreasing
range of land uses from a
commercial-industrial em-
phasis along 1-75 to office and
.retail uses .mixed with low-
and moderate-density resi-
dential uses and ultimately
reflecting a conservation cor-
ridor along the Myakka River.
To quantify the city's vision
as compared to the county
plan for this area, let's look at
a specific example: the Ve-
netian Golf & River Club.
Under WCI Communities
as the developer and the city
as regulator, the following fea-
tures were obtained: the
number of units for the 1,000-
acre parcel will be 1,300 to
1,500 dwellings at build-out
(a density of less than two
units per acre); an Audubon-
qualified golf course; Laurel
Road was constructed at no
cost to the city or county; the
area's first development-spe-
cific and funded shelter will
be built; 80 acres of conserva-
tion area and 10 acres of pub-
lic park were dedicated to the
city; the city received rights to
future water well sites; and
more than $1 million in spe-
cial assessments have been
received by the city beyond
the required transportation,
school, park and library im-
pact fees.
Venice is the only commu-
nity in this region that suc-
cessfully receives these devel-
oper dedications.
Under the county's own
analysis of its plan, the build-
out on the Venetian Golf &
River Club could have ap-
proached 1,875 dwelling un-
its and more than one-half
million square feet of indus-
trial and commercial space.
The transportation volume
on Laurel Road from these
county-planned uses far
exceeds the number of vehi-
cles per day that ultimately
will occur under the city-ap-


proved plan.
This past year, Sarasota
County authorized thou-
sands of new dwellings in the
area east of the city along
Center Road, Venice Avenue
and River Road.
County representatives
have recently said that they
don't provide the. same level
and quality of service as cities.
The real question is not
whether Venice has a plan,
but whether the city's vision
provides for our residents,
visitors and businesses.
The city offers choices:
Some residents choose the
traditional neighborhoods on
the island; others prefer golf-
course communities; some
single-family estates; others
seasonal condominium re-
sorts.
We embrace the principles
of John Nolen; support low-
income and workforce hous-
ing initiatives; and believe the
vast majority of residents
enjoy the neighborhood that
they have chosen to call their
home in Venice.
Our future plans will pro-
vide a range of options to
meet these needs, including
areas that may be set aside to
reflect the city's historic de-
sign features. *
As John Nolen stated, '"A
city plan does not attempt to
bind the city too far in the fu-
ture, but is subject to amend-
ment from time to time
according to new conditions."

vision and values that shape
the city's decision-making,

manager's report at venice

LETTERS FROM
OUR READERS

How can

temporary

tax be,

permanent?

Editor:
Thanks for terrific article
in Sunday's Gondolier Sun.
Bob Vedder's column a few
days'ago made a lot of us sit
up and pay attention to the
upcoming vote, on paying
more millage mdney. Anyone
who missed that heads-up
article should go back and
read it.
Thanks also to Superin-
tendent Gary Ndcris for his
frank admission that the mill-
age "is clearly a permanent
thing."
As I understandit, millage
as a concept is as a tax supple-
ment for a fixed period and
for a specific expenditure pur-
pose. If the extra money being
asked for education is now
"clearly a permanent thing,"
as the superintendent insists,
should it not more'honestly
become part of the annual
budget and tax bill?
As millage is a concept for
raising a supplementary tax
amount i.e., both specific
and temporary in nature -
then it just has to be strictly
controlled by putting a cap on
the amount it is intended to
raise. Otherwise it is dishon-
est
Equally, every property
owner should pay all of the
millage with no reduction for
homestead. Everyone should
pay the same for a supple-
mentary tax.
Why, there is even a dase to
be made that only Home-
steaders should pay any mill-
age tax when one is called for.
Now wouldn't that bie an
interesting concept to focus
the minds on whether or pot a

Paper ballots. I have a different comment on voting

two elections, I have not cared for either candidate, and want-
ed do a write-in), which in the past one has been able to do.
When John McCain ran and then withdrew, his name was on
the ballot, so I was able to punch the hole and vote for him. The
next election, four years later, I still did not approve of either
candidate and wanted to write in for McCain again since he
seemed fairly sensible. However, his name was not on the bal-
lot and you cant do a write-in when you have the voting
machine. I would like some method whereby, if we do not care
for either candidate, we can do a write-in. Maybe we need
some paper ballots for people who want to do write-ins.

As a final clue, C.J. Fish-
man, now chair of the CQG,
said at a Sept. 13, 2005, coun-
cil meeting on the Miller pro-
posed zoning specifying he
was speaking for himself, not
as a representative of CQG -
"We helped get a lot of you
elected ... actually, in fact, all
of you." He later added, "I
hope you do the right thing,
because we are the ones that
let you into office that's
what we brought you into
office for."
Mr. Fishman included
other citizens in his overall
context, but his message was
not lost on the audience or
council members.
Mr. Simmonds said neither

Do you agree?

has been providing his ser-
vices "pro bono" that is,
without charge to the ten-
ants of the Venice Housing
Authority.
There have been detailed
reports in die Gondolier Sun
of seeming irregularities in
the process of planning for a
new low-income and afford-
able project. They include
profits by the contractor that
seem very large and e-mails
from Peter Lopez, the recently
departed manager of the
authority's affairs, suggesting
that evictions might help
lower the number of people
needing shelter in the new
project, which would have
fewer low-income units than
currently exist.
City council met with
housing authority represent '


tives yesterday to discuss the
problems, but council has no
real authority to approve or
disapprove actions; it only
can appoint board members.
Their interest can raise the
visibility of the problems, per-
haps precipitate authority
review and actions, and per-
haps offer some planning
staff assistance to review the
adequacy of present plans.
Preiksat found a memo
from a consultant saying the
existing buildings were sound
and might be renovated with
air conditioning and laundry,
rooms for about $1.4 million.
The information submitted to
the Department of Housing
and Urban Development sug-
gested the repair costs would


be more than $7 million, a
justification for building new
facilities.
Hopefully, Preiksat's efforts
and those of the city might
spark a careful review by
HUD and a better deal for the
residents.

School concurrency

draft approved


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER
Elected officials from
across Sarasota County gath-
ered Friday to voice their
opinions about the school
board's School Concurrency
Pilot Program.
Officials from the county,
the school board, Sarasota,
Venice, North Port and Long-
boat Key met at the Venice
Community Center and,
agreed to send a preliminary
document to the state out-
lining a plan to meet the
future growth of the area.
School board chair Carol
Todd said the
plan will ad-
dress growth
as it comes
to the area,
S instead of the
current sys-
tem of react-
ing to it.

Thaxton was brought
to the fore-
front in 2005, when the Florida
Legislature passed a law that

ztiutn


give the district the ability to
require a developer to pay a
fee to create room for any
potential new students the
development would bring in.
The fee structure has not
been established, said Super-
intendent Gary Norris.
"It can be a
cost per stu-
dent station
or some varia-
tion on that," .
Norris said. ,
If the dis- -
trict does not
have a school
planned for
the area Norris
where the de-
velopment is being built, it
can go several routes: require
fees; delay a project until the
district is ready to absorb new
stud-ents; require mitigation
to speed up the process; or
disapprove a project outright.
County Commissioner Jon
Thaxton was able to gain
support for putting an ex-
plicit notation in the paper-
work to ensure that power of
rejection.
"To not incorporate it
would not be responsible,"
Thaxton said.


Packed house attends




airport workshop


City uses Envision Venice approach
to collect public input on future development.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR,
Community Hall was over-
flowing Monday night as
more than 80 people attend-
ed a public workshop to dis-
cuss the future, of the Venice
Municipal Airport.
City Manager Marty Black
and Public Information Of-
ficer Pam Johnson had only
expected 40-50 people to at-
tend. The goal of the work-
shop was to document what
local people want to see hap-
pen there.
The consultant's summary
of audience' opinions is ex-
pected to be finished within
the next months.
"We're thrilled we got 80
people to show up," said


Black, who called the meeting
a success.
Johnson also called the
meeting a success. The only
trouble was rearranging chairs
and tables to handle twice as
many people attending as
predicted.
The workshop was set up
similar to Envision Venice
meetings held last summer to
revise and update the city's
comprehensive plan. Audi-
ence members broke up into
groups, went to four work
stations and came up with
suggestions on two topics -
future development of airport
land and neighborhood com-
patibility.
Airport Manager Fred
Watts is in the midst of con-
ducting an Airport Master


plan update. Included in that
extensive, detailed report will
be aircraft operations; up-
dates to T-hangars and facil-
ities; environmental protec-
tion; noise pollution; and
funding for improvements.
They were heard
Funding is the major con-
cern. For years city council
has considered developing a
portion of the vacant airport
property to pay for airport
operations and improve-
ments. No local tax dollars
can be spent on the airport,
meaning all revenue comes
from airport rental agree-
ments and federal and state
transportation money.
Nearly two years ago, city
council rejected three devel-
oper proposals for airport
property because all three
included major residential
components. Council still


hasn't decided what it wants,
but the most recent indical
tions are tourist-based devel-
opments like a marina, res-.
taurant and hotel would bb
preferred.
As for neighborhood com-
patibility, the city is attempt-
ing to resolve complaints the
airport is already too loud
and busy for the island. The
airport manager is pushing
for voluntary noise reduc-
tions by pilots and looking
for buffering suggestions to
reduce noise and air pollution
by jets.
No timeline has been set
for decisions to be made. \I
"For the most part, it was
a success," Johnson said. 'At
the end, people left feeling
like they were heard."

SARASOTA COUNTY BRIEFS


Attorney evaluation
County Attorney Steve De-
Marsh received his first eval-
uation since he was appoint-
ed in October 2004.
He was praised for his work
and the ease with which he
was able to lead the depart-
ment through myriad issues,
including land use, environ-
mental and civil rights, as
well as being able to answer
questions from the commis-
sioners.
DeMarsh said the time
spent on legal issues has
increased dramatically in the
past few years, and the de-


mands will continue increase.
"I believe we will be excep-.
tionally busy in 2006," he said.
Commission Chair David
Mills, who created a formal
evaluation of DeMarsh, said
rewarding him for his accom-
plishments was appropriate.
Mills admitted being be-
hind in getting the evaluation
completed.
Commissioner Shannon
Staub credited DeMarsh with
increasing the morale in the
attorney's office.
The board approved a
$15,000 raise to a new base
salary of $180,000.

The Venice Vikings minor
league football team contin-
ues to have its problems in its
third year of existence.
In a battle of winless teams
Saturday night at Letson
Stadium, the.Vikes saw their
Southern States Football
League record drop to 0-6
with a 22-18 loss to the
Treasure Coast Pirates.
Treasure Coast, located in
Jensen Beach, got its first win
of the season, improving to
1-5.
Frustration is building for
the Vikings, who won three
games in their first season,
two games last year and are
still looking for their first
win of the season this time
around.
Vikings head coach Rich
Deto was arrested on battery
charges at 9:20 p.m. SatUrday
at the field by the Venice Po-
lice Department. Deto re-
portedly had a confronta-
tion with one of his Viking
players.
Late in the first quarter,
the Vikings put together
what looked like could be a
scoring drive. Behind the
running of Cory Corbett and
quarter-back Will Carter,
Venice was down at the
enemy 7-yard line. Gerald
Perry ran the ball to the 5 as
the buzzer ending the first


Giovanini, Miller and Wheatley the latest picks


Class of 2006 allows Venice Sports
Hall of Fame to grow by three.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

It seems its not very diffi-
cult coming up with quality
folks for the Venice Sports
Hall of Fame.
The fourth annual induc-
tion ceremony in June will
honor three very deserving
people.
Take a bow, Class of 2006
Lou Giovanini, Bert Miller
and Brian Wheatley.
Wheatley, a California na-
tive, has headed up the Ven-
ice High volleyball program
since 1994. ,


As head coach, the 35-year-
old Wheatley has built the
Lady Indians into a state
power. VHS has won two
state championships and
has twice finished runnerup
under Wheatley's tenure.'
Giovanini is the first per-
son representing senior soft-
ball voted into the hall. Ven-
ice is unofficially the "Senior
Softball Capital of the USA."
A native of Indiana, the
67-year-old Giovanini was a
highly successful high school
baseball coach in Indiana. He
moved to Venice in 1990 and
became active in the senior


softball leagues at Bypass
Park.
Giovanini not only excell-
ed locally, but excelled with
the Legends travel ball team,
which wins a number of
national events each year.
Giovanini has been presi-
dent of Venice Senior Softball
since 2000. He has already
been elected into the Florida
and National Senior Softball
Hall of Fames.
Miller is also a Hoosier
who relocated to Venice in
1983. He began volunteering
as coach and umpire with
the Venice Little League. Soon
after that, he was equipment
manager with the Venice
Vikings youth football organi-
zation.,


Here we are 23 years later
and Miller is still active in
both organizations. Ten-hour
days at the field are still not
uncommon.
The three new inductees
swell the number of folks in
the Venice Sports Hall of
Fame to 18.
The first group was in-
ducted in 2003. That group
included Jack Dundas, Mark
Guthrie, Jim Powell, Chuck
Reiter and DonnieYoung.
The big Class of 2004 had
Jerry Biller, Dan and Freda
Boone, Alvin Mitchell, Larry
Sandburg, Jack Voigt and Bob
Welch.
Last year's bunch had
Ralph Adrian Sr., Milt Maas
and Sheryl Maize.


Hall of Fame members are
voted in by a committee of 13.
Wheatley, Giovanini and
Miller will be honored at a
banquet on Thursday night,
June 1, at Bogey's Restaurant
and Sports Pub on East Venice
Avenue in Venice.
Plaques honoring those
inducted are on a "Wall of
Fame" located at the entrance
of Bogey's.
All proceeds from the Ven-
ice Sports Hall of Fame ban-
quet will go to the Rotary
Futures Program. Since, its
inception, the Venice Sports
Hall of Fame banquet has
raised more than $17,000.
For reservations, call Kim
Kindell at 480-3178 or Mark

Lady Indians show balance


in win over Charlotte


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice High varsity
softball team is looking
sharp on all fronts, which
can only spell bad news for
opponents.
The Lady Indians received
excellent pitching, defense
and offense Tuesday night in
a 5-0 decision over visiting
Charlotte High,
Venice improved to 6-1
overall and 4-0 in Class 5A
District 12. Charlotte fell to
2-4 and 2-2.
The excellent pitching
came from Heather Laird,
Who improved her personal
mark to 4-0 with a five-hit
shutout. The senior struck
out five and walked three.
There were some awesome
defensive gems in the field.
The most notable came
from third baseman Felicia
Taylor, who made a couple of
super stabs and made a nice
running catch of a foul ball.
Catcher Megan Watson dove
in front of the plate to catch
a pop in the fourth. Short-
stop Brittany Hipple played
her usual solid game.
Hitting-wise, Venice fin-
ished with 10 hits off losing
pitcher Pheedy Spallone


(2-3), who tried a variety of
speeds to try to fool Lady
Indian batters.
Taylor and Hipple led the
way with three hits apiece.
Maureen Sandidge had two
hits. Laird helped herself
with a RBI single.
Charlotte threatened in
the top of the first with two
bunt singles and walk. Laird
pitched out of the bases
loaded, no out, situation
without any damage, striking
out two of the three.
Venice got two in the bot-
tom of the first. Taylor sin-
gled and Hipple reached
when her grounder ..to.~third
was,, thrown, intohcenterfield
when nob' dy Was' covering
second on a double play try.
Taylor scored on a wild pitch.
Hipple came home on a dou-
ble to left-center by San-
didge.
The Lady Indians scored
two more in the fifth. Taylor
led off with an opposite-field
triple down the left field line.
Hipple smoked a 3-2 pitch
for an RBI single. Sandidge
single to move Hipple to
third. Laird brought the run
home with a hard single off
the third baseman's glove.
One more insurance run
came in the sixth. Nikki Clark


reached an an error and
moved to second on a wild
pitch. Hipple was again
clutch with a single to make
it 5 zip.
Venice will play another
district game Thursday with
Lakewood Ranch coming to
town.
The VHS junior varsity
improved its record to 7-0
with a 12-0 pounding of
Charlotte. Katelynn Albert
pitched three innings and
Stephanie Sullivan the final
two.

for-3 with a double. Ariel
Brodeur, Casey Garner and
bMadeline Jones eachh, had
two RBIs.
JVs laugh 27-0

27-0 laugher over Southeast

ed from 16 walks.

Hiner swinging sweet for St. Pete


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Last year, St. Petersburg
College had a magical year
that saw the Titans march all
the way to the JUCO World
Series finals.
Although SPC lost to New
Mexico Junior College, the
Titans still had an impressive
47-16 record and gained na-
tional recognition.
In the middle of the suc-
cess was freshman shortstop
.A.J. Hiner, who earlier excell-
ed at Venice High.
Hiner batted .359 during
the regular season and .333
in the JUCO World Series


played in Grand Junction,
Colo.
This year, Hiner is one of
the few holdovers from that
team.
"A.J. is the only starter
back," said coach Dave Pano.
"We lost our 1-2 and 4 pitch-
ers. We have a lot of fresh-
men playing."
St. Pete is 12-8 so far but
improving every week. Hiner
is the leadoff batter. He is hit-
ting .318 (21-for-66) with 11
RBIs and five stolen bases.
"He's doing very well," Pano
said. "He's had good at bats.
He's hitting the ball hard. He
also is doing the job in the
field. I think he's a better kid."


Which can translate into
maturity and leadership abil-
ities.

Former VHS baseball
standout Steve Strausbaugh
played three games with his
Western Carolina teammates
in Deland over the weekend.
The Catamounts (3-2) beat
Stetson and Illinois and lost
to South Florida.
Strausbaugh had a home
run against Stetson arid had
two hits and three RBIs
against Illinois.
On the season, Straus-
baugh is hitting .278 with
three homers and eight
RBIs.


quarter sounded. It appear-.
ed players thought the play
was over, but a referee's
whistle was never blown.
The ball was stripped and
returned 95 yards for a
Pirate touchdown. The
Pirates ran the conversion to
make it 8-0.
Duke Hamm caught a 33-
yard touchdown pass from
Carter in the second quarter.
The conversion pass failed.
The halftime score was
8-6.
Venice will play host to
another winless team this


Saturday at 7 p.m. as the East
Coast (Delray Beach) Reapers
come to town. The Reapers
lost 15-8 to the Spartans
this past Saturday, to fall to
0-6.

Older Veople are often very concerned about how
to best reduce body fat as a means of preventing
such health problems as heart disease and diabetes.
C However, excess fat does provide the benefit of
maintaining bonemass. Fat loss through diet alone
can lead to bone loss, worsening the body's natural
age-related bone loss, which is a major risk factor for
bone fractures. Now, a new study shows that exercise
helps maintain bone mass in people ages 55-75. This
finding challenges the idea that fat-burning exercise by
older individuals harm bone health. This is the first
study to examine the impact of exercise independent of
) other factors, particularly diet, on bone mineral density
and the risk of osteoporosis and fractures.
This informative column on bone density has been
brought to you as a public service from the Doctors of Twin

Purchase of land for roads is vastly complicated


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

As difficult as it can be to
build a road, one of the most
politically charged steps in
that process is buying the
land where the road needs to
go.
Land values have more
than doubled in the past few
years and the competition
from developers has com-
bined with that to make the
process much more costly.
Add to that the disruption
of lives and businesses
through the buying or forced
taking of property and few
people end the process hap-
py except the drivers who
will be able to get where they
need to go a little quicker.
Sarasota County Real
Property Manager Lin Kurant
said there is a delicate bal-
ance between buying proper-
ty in a civil manner and forc-
ing someone to clear out a
property for the sake of a
road.
"We usually have mostly
people who are willing sellers
versus the ones which are


unwilling sellers," Kurant said.
The amount of land needed
for each project varies de-
pending on the proposed
design of any road, including
the need for stormwater run-
off management, whether
the road gets sidewalks, bi-
cycle paths or lighting and
mitigation for environmental
impacts.
Some purchases involve
buying a few feet of grass in
front of a home or business
or taking a home or business
if the new roads will be too
close to them.
One of the most contro-
versial of these takings will
be along the U.S. 41 Bypass in
Venice. Dozens of businesses
along the commercial corridor
could be affected when the
road is eventually widened.
On roads such as Veterans
Boulevard, Edgewater Drive
or even East Dearborn Street,
the taking of property might
not be as obvious but could
be just as contentious.
"We try to make the proc-
ess as easy and painless as
possible," Kurant said.
Land purchases could cut


out large portions of some
homeowners' front yards,
leaving little room for any-
thing.

Good stewards
Some people are happy to
get rid of their property, while
others are willing to sell but
at a far higher price than gov-
ernment officials are willing
to pay.
"We can only offer a fair-
market price," Kurant said.
Some people try to rely on
the golden goose of county
government and are willing
to hold the county hostage
for more money than their
land is really worth by hiring
an attorney.
Rarely does this process
increase the price significant-
ly.
"We can't allow people to
take advantage of us," Kurant
said. "We have to be fair and
equitable. We have to be
good stewards to the tax-
payers."
Charlotte County Real
Property Services Manager J.
Paul Payette said his team
tries to avoid any confronta-


tion, but when people hire
attorneys there is little they
can do.
When the government
comes across unwilling sell-
ers, the legal process of emi-
nent domain begins.
While Payette and Kurant
would rather settle, they re-

"We try to make the

process as easy and

painless as possible."

Lin Kurant,

Sarasota County Real

Property Manager



sort to eminent domain
when a settlement cannot be
reached. A judge or jury rules
whether the taking is legal
and can move forward to de-
termine reasonable compen-
sation.
Sometimes, the process is
necessary if clear ownership
of a property cannot be es-
tablished, because the proc-
ess of finding the landowners
can be difficult, especially


with land ownership that can
be spread all over the world.
Many of the landowners
often have no idea about
projects even with a coordi-
nated publicity effort, includ-
ing public meetings, fliers
and the media. Some have no
idea their family even owns
land in Florida.

The basics
Payette said the process to
acquire land is often very
basic, with the staff looking
for "for sale" signs in areas
where roads are expected to
be built.
Veterans Boulevard had all
but one property purchased
in advance.
During negotiations, the
real property team can offer
cash for property and in
Charlotte County's case, a
land swap to people who
were interested in rebuilding
or owning land within the
countyif cash is not an option.
"The county commission-
ers offer us a lot of flexibility
to offer a fair deal to every-
one," Payette said. "We do this
normally, but when dealing


with buying hundreds of lots
at the same time it really
helps speed the process."
Sarasota County estab-
lished an advance right-of-
way acquisition fund 10 years
ago to address future road
needs included in its 2020
Thoroughfare Plan.
The acquisitions include
creating developer set asides;
parcels for future pond sites,
flood plain and mitigation-
areas; future roadway corri-
dors; and homes along pro-
posed project routes.
All purchases in this ad-
vanced program are done on
a voluntary basis. In the first
10 years, Sarasota County has
shelled out about $43 million,
Kurant said.
The money comes from a
slush fund and is reimbursed
by the funding from tax dol-
lars and state and federal
grants, which pay for the
entire project.
"It has been very success-
ful in helping us get ahead of
many projects," she said. "It
offers some of the pieces
needed to assemble right of
way in the best way possible."

Members of the Croquet club meet at Wellfield ParkTuesdays at 10 a.m.

STAFF WRITER

Fred Jones added a bright
red blazer to his. croquet wear
at the end of last year.
While white is de rigeur for
players on the croquet court,
the red blazers are a badge of
honor similar to the green
blazers awarded to winners of
golf's Masters. Tournament
held annually in Augusta, Ga.
Jones, of Liscouort Drive in
Venice, donned his Croquet
Hall of Fame red blazer for the
first time at a formal banquet
held at the National Croquet
Center in West Palm Beach on
Nov. 18.
Jones was elected to the
Hall of Fame by vote of the
board of directors of the
Croquet Foundation of Amer-
ica, the nonprofit organiza-
tion of the United States Cro-
quet Association.
"You have to be a fairly
good player, but not critical-


ly," Jones said.
Criteria for selection in-
cludes one's passion for die
game, accomplishments in
the. sport and volunteer ef-
forts in supporting, promot-
ing, and improving the sport
of croquet. Jones, with a zero
handicap in croquet compe-
tition, had no trouble qualify-
ing on all counts and was one
of just two players' selected
nationally for the honor.
The induction ceremony is
held during the annual Se-
niors-Masters National Cro-,
quet Championships in West
Pam Beach.
At the tournament this
year were 84 players from
throughout the United States.
Fred placed second in the
Masters tournament, and
with his wife as a partner,
placed third in the combined
doubles.
In the past 10 years 15 peo-
ple have been so honored by
the association.

Fred Jones, 11-year croquet veteran, was inducted into the
Croquet Hall of Fame.


CROQUET IN AMERICA
The sport of croquet was born in the British Isles in the mid-19th century and soon migrated to most
other English-speaking countries. In the United States, manufacturers popularized a version of the
sport that could be played on rough turf with lightweight, inexpensive equipment. It is this light-
weight, scaled-down, toy version of croquet that most Americans have either seen or played.
Croquet as a public sport suffered a setback in the 1890s when the Boston clergy spoke out against the
drinking, gambling and licentious behavior associated with it on the Common.
The game of Backyard Croquet has maintained its popularity in America for more than 100 years as
the ideal complement of garden parties, family gatherings, outdoor fundraisers, and social events
both raucous and elegant.
The more sophisticated sport of 6-wicket croquet, requiring heavier equipment, good lawns and a
more intense sporting attitude, though widely played in England and most Commonwealth countries,
was rarely seen by Americans until the late 1970s.

Jones is a member of the
Management Committee of
the USCA as well as the re-
gional vice-president for the
Florida Region. He and his
wife Jackie have been teach-
ing croquet here for the past
14 years. Jones teaches two
days a week in Naples, two
days a week in Boca Grande
and runs tournaments on the
weekend.
Jones said his wife will
probably be inducted soon
for her work in the club
they've created.
"She started it from the
ground up," he said. "We


started with 15 members
about five years ago in
Sarasota, and she built it up to
about 60. Then we moved
down here and we're up to
154 members."
Jackie and Fred give les-
sons Tuesdays at 10 a.m.
"It's supporting croquet,"
Jones said. "Some of the other
fellows that have made it are
professionals at it."
The Jones have been here
for 16 years. When they first
arrived they paid half the cost
to put in a croquet court in at
Waterford.
"When we first got the cro-


quet courts in we were brand
new and meeting neighbors
and everything," Jones said.
"We'd say 'We're Fred and
Jackie Jones' and they'd say
'Oh, you're the croquet peo-
ple.' So, then we coined the
name and got registered with
the state of Florida."
Since then, the courts at
Waterford have been built
over. Luckily, the county built
the courts atWellfield Park for
croquet lovers in Sarasota.
Locally, he actively sup-
ports the Sarasota County

Yl .JLIIL. I UIlIV
CORRESPONDENT

Award-winning author
and Venice resident Joan
Hiatt Harlow recently came to
speak to students at Garden
Elementary School.
The event, entitled, One
Community, One Book, was
organized by third-grade
teacher, Susan Ionescu.
The Garden Student Advis-
ory Committee, headed .by
teacher Gabrielle O'Berry,
provided funding for the
event, which included buying
25 copies of Harlow's book,
"Thunder From the Sea."
Student Advisory Commit-
tee member and business
partner, Jack Schultz, donat-
ed funds for the evening's re-
freshments. Connie Shuman
joined Harlow up front to give
the American Sign Language
translation of Harlow's pre-
sentation.
Harlow, originally from
Newfoundland, told students
how she comes up with her
captivating story ideas. She
credited her mother, whose
story-telling gifts inspired her
as a child, with giving her the
"key" to writing a good tale: A
little bit of true, a whole lot of
story.
That phrase became the
theme for the evening, as
Harlow explained the bits of
"true" that sparked her imagi-
nation to. create her many
children's books.
All the students who at-
tended brought copies of
"Thunder From the Sea." The
students, and many of their
parents as well, had read the

book in preparation for Har-
low's visit.
One of the main characters
in the story is a brave
Newfoundland dog named
Thunder.
Students opened their
copies and followed along
while Harlow read an exciting
chapter about an earthquake
and tsunami that struck just
off the Newfoundland coast-
line.
She then showed the audi-
ence old pictures of the dev-
astation caused by the real
earthquake that became the


"little bit of true" around
which her tale was formed.
Students were treated to a
surprise visitor at the end of
the chapter reading. Garden
Elementary first-grade teach-
er, Ashleigh' James, brought
her 14-week-old Newfound-
land puppy, Keuka, for stu-
dents to see.
Keuka looked very much
like a young version of
Thunder in the story. He set-
tled himself comfortably on
the floor, clearly enjoying all
the extra petting and atten-
tion he was given by admiring

Harlow couldn't resist,
either, and stole a short break
from signing autographs to
spend some quality time iLth
Keuka.
Thanks to Harlow, stu-
dents left that evening know-
ing that every person they
meet and every experience
they have, no matter how un-
important they seem, has the
potential to become part of a
wonderful tale. All. that is
needed is "a little bit of true"
and they are on their way to
writing "a whole lot of story."

recently encountered an
actual live whale in person. In
fact, I encountered a group of
whales, which is called a
"pod," or sometimes "a group
of whales."
I encountered this particu-
lar pod off the coast of Maui,
which is one of the major
Hawaiian Islands (the other
ones are Oahu, The Big
Island, Kawahoolele, The
Medium Island, Kawahal-
anakanalekaelele, The Other
Medium Island, Kelelea-
kahanenenenenehawahi-
nenene and Guam). Maui is a
superb place to go and soak
up the wonderful Hawaiian
culture at the rate of 52,000
calories per day, which is
what my wife and I were
doing when we decided that
we had better go encounter
some whales while there was
still a boat in the Hawaiian
Islands capable of carrying
our weight.
Each winter, a large num-
ber, or "bunch," of North
Pacific humpback whales
swims all the way down to


Maui from Alaska, a distance
of thousands of miles. Why do
the whales make this difficult
journey?
For the same reason that
athletes compete and actors
perform and singers sing and
politicians run for high office:
They want to have sex. There
is wild whale sex going on in
the water around Maui,
accompanied by an under-
water soundtrack of cool,
spacelike whale noises,
including a song that the
males sing to attract the
females. The fascinating thing
is, all the male humpback
whales sing the same song:,
"My Way"
No, I'm kidding. If they
sang that, the females would
deliberately beach them-
selves. But the male whales
really do all sing the same
song, and it changes from
time to time, and all the
males, all over the world,
somehow learn the changes.
(Maybe they're on the In-
ternet.) Evidently, the song is
effective, because a lot of
mating goes on around Maui.
Afterward, the male whale
swims off in a carefree man-
ner, leaving the female to be
pregnant for a year, at the end
of which she gives birth, all
alone, without anesthetic, to
a baby whale the size of a
Toyota Corolla.
If, during the birth, the
male happens to swim past,
singing his song, "Mr. Stud of
the Sea," I bet the female gives
him a good whack with her
15-foot pectoral-fin.
But the real threat to
whales is whaling, which has
endangered many whale
species. This is why I say to
young people: If you're ever in
school or at the mall, and
somebody in your peer group


whispers to you, "Pssst ...
Wanna go whaling?" you
should "just say no." Also, you
should tell your congressper-
son that you favor the 30-day
cooling-off period on the pur-
chase of harpoons. Or you
can support the Pacific Whale
Foundation (300 Maalaea
Rd., Suite 211, Wailuku,
Hawaii 96793), which is the
non-profit outfit that oper-
ates the boat that took us
whale-watching.
I will admit that I was a
teensy bit nervous about
boating in whale-intensive
waters, because ofmymemo-
ries of "Moby Dick," which is
about Captain Ahab, played
in the movie by Gregory Peck,
who looks just like Abraham
Lincoln but with fewer legs.
Ahab wants to kill this giant
white whale, played in the
movie by Marlon Brando, but
in the end Marlon tips over
the entire boat and everybody.
dies except the narrator. (In
high school, when I had to
read "Moby Dick," which is 87
million pages long, I found
myself wishing that the narra-
tor had also died.)
But we boldly set out on
the Pacific Whale Foundation
boat, along with about 15
other tourists (also known as
a "waist-pack" of tourists) and
started looking for humpback
whales. You would .think
they'd be easy to find, being
as how they weigh up to
80,000 pounds-more than
Edward Kennedy and Newt
Gingrich combined but for
a while we didn't see any-
thing. And then, after almost
an hour, people started
shouting, and I looked out
where, they were pointing,
and I saw this was one of
the most unforgettable
moments of my life noth-


ing.
I'm one of those people
who, when there's a major
natural spectacle that every-
body else can see, I can't see
it. I would not have seen
Halley's comet if it had passed
through my living room.
But finally, after several
anxious minutes of scanning
the ocean, I heard a loud
whooshing noise and saw a
big puff go shooting into the
air, and suddenly there it was,
in plain view: Old Faithful!.
No, it was a whale, and it
was very large. And then there
were more puffs and more
whales, forming a four-whale
pod consisting of a mother,
her baby and two male
"escort" whales who were try-
ing to get the female's atten-
tion, probably sweet-talking
her in whale language ("Are
those barnacles new? They
look terrific!").
The whales swam slowly,
gracefully, past our boat for
several minutes, surfacing,
puffing, 'diving, surfacing.
They came pretty close to us,
but it was never scary; it was
- and here I will quote
Herman Melville very cool.
We could have watched the
whales for hours, but before
long, we had to leave.
For just as the humpbacks
'would soon be returning to
the Alaskan feeding grounds
- where they eat up to a ton
of raw fish per day so did
we have to get back to the
hotel for dinner., We had
sushi, but nowhere near a
ton. At least not apiece.

Taming test-taking anxiety


LYNN REIFERT
(0 RREPR,.- FPN[,I '


An old Italian proverb says,
'"A hundred cartloads of anxi-
ety will not pay an ounce of
debt." In other words, worry-
ing about taking a test is not
going to help.
Many people in fact,
around 20 percent admit to
"blanking out" or "freezing"
when taking a test. Though
some nervousness is to be
expected, when it reaches the
point that it affects test per-
formance it is time to exam-
ine the anxiety and take posi-
tive action to reduce it.
Is the anxiety related to a
lack of preparation? If so, it is
a normal, rational reaction.
Preparation is the best way to
minimize rational anxiety.
Some suggestions for pre-
paring are: avoiding "cram-
ming" for a test; and asking


yourself what questions may
be asked and trying to answer
them by using your notes
from lectures and texts. If the
amount of material seems
overwhelming, select the
most important points in the
information and cover them
well.
If you have prepared ade-
quately but still panic, your
reaction is not rational. There
are steps you can take to help
overcome these feelings, as
well.
Do not overplay the im-
portance of the grade. It is not
a reflection of your self-worth
and does not predict your
future success.
Remind yourself that it is
just a test to try to show as
much of what you know as
you can. This test is not the
only test you'll ever take.
There will be others.
Plan to reward. yourself
after you have taken the test,
by going to a movie or out to
eat with friends. This gives
you something positive to
connect with the test-taking
experience and may help
reduce anxiety.
Before the test, strive for a
relaxed state of concentra-
tion. Exercise and good nutri-

Shady Haven park gets its start in 1935


BY DIANA HARRIS
HISTORY COLUMNIST

The early "trailerites" came
to Florida for the beautiful
weather and for the spectacu-
lar fishing.
In those days, there was an
excess of inexpensive water-
front property. Many of the
early trailer parks were built
on land that had water access,
land that now becomes more
valuable by the day.
Long before condos ar-
rived in Englewood, the town
was dotted with trailer parks.
One by one, these pieces of
property are being .sold to
make way for more condos,
and with them go a lifestyle
that has been very popular in
Florida for decades.
Shady Haven Mobile Park,
on Old Englewood Road, is
the latest park to announce
its closing. It is one of Eng-
lewood's original parks. It's a
most pleasant and attractive
area, a little community to
itself.
Here's how it came in to
existence 71 years ago.
Early Freese
Elmer B. Freese was a per-
son who cared about the wel-
fare of others. He came here,
probably in the mid-1920s,
from NewYork.
Pete Buchan built him an
auto repair garage next to
Buchan's Landing. It was
located on the corner of Old
Englewood Road and Dear-
born Street, where Lemon
Bay Funeral Home is today. It
was called the Englewood
Garage.
It's hard to imagine Freese
being able to make a living on
the handful of cars and trucks
that were in Englewood at

that time.
Freese soon bought a large
piece of property on Old
Englewood Road a few blocks
from Buchan's Landing. He
built a home there for himself
and his wife, as well as a tiny
store. The buildings sat about
where the clubhouse of
Shady Haven Mobile Home
Park is located today.
Not-so-ill wind
In 1935, there was no
advance hurricane warning
system, no TV and few radios.
But there were many ways to
predict oncoming storms, or so
said some who lived in hurri-
cane areas such as Englewood.
Many believed old wives'
tales, like if the sky turns yel-.
low a hurricane is coming, or
if the leaves on the trees or
bushes turn wrong side up,
the hurricane is about one
day away.
Whatever pre-storm signs
were read that day in


Englewood, the word got
around town that a bad hurri-
cane was coming, and locals
were very concerned, water
was going to come across
Manasota Key.
Elmer Freese got to worry-
ing about the people in a trail-
er park on the key. It was situ-
ated where Englewood Villas
is today, across from the pub-
lic beach. The trailer park
catered to carnival and circus
people.
Freese had a large amount
of land behind his house. He
decided it was the neighborly
thing to do to let those trailer
park folks know they had, a
place to come on the main-
land, free of charge, if they so
chose. Many took Freese up
on his offer. Thus, the birth of
the Shady Haven Mobile
Home park was the result of
the very bad 1935 hurricane.
For a price
After the storm, Freese

probably saw a way of mak-
ing a little extra money, so
when some of the trailerites
approached him about sfay-
ing on, he was agreeable. But
this time, it was for a fee. This
is the reason some of the first
tenants in the park were car-
nival people.
The early travel-trailering
people definitely have a place
in Florida history. They would
tell friends and family about
the wonderful places they
had found, so in their, wake
followed more people who
found Florida enticing
enough to settle here.
The owners of Shady Hav-
en are receiving $7 million for
their property. Whatever
would Elmer Freese thought
of that?

Don't panic.
If you start getting tense,
tell yourself to relax and stay

Push any negative self-talk

Recognize that you are

backwards!
It was my freshman year at
Ohio State University when
the five of us used the race as
our last hoorah together,
before college and life sent us
all our separate ways.
None of us had ever at-
tempted a marathon, and as a
group of obnoxious 18-year-
olds, none of us knew any
better.
This November will be the
15th anniversary of that day,
running through downtown
Columbus and yelling and
cheering. I remember my
nose getting so .cold it hurt,
and some woman at mile No.
15 groaning loudly when she
saw us, "Oh my God, they're
still talking!"
That also was the day I -

beat the cross country team's
No. 1 runner. Jeremy was
,nearly 3 minutes faster than
me on a 3.1-mile course, but
on that day in 1991, he fell
apart at mile No. 17 and I kept
going.
We didn't care about our
time. However, we did want
to defeat Backwards Bud -
some crazy guy being paid by
a beer company to run the
entire marathon backwards
in order to set a world record.
All of us finished faster
than Backwards Bud. Without
realizing it, my marathon
time of 3 hours, 53 minutes
was pretty impressive.
A decade of inactivity and
the. addition of more than 65
pounds has since convinced
me of that achievement.
And for the past several
years, I've aimed to regain


the Pavilion. Registration
begins at 6:30 a.m. Regis-
tration fee is $15 if done by
Feb. 25, and $20 after that and

Sarasota memories
Sarasota Marathon is this
Sunday. Up until about two
months ago, my goal was to
run a time equal to my very
first marathon.
Reality has prompted me
to scale back. I'm 15 pounds
heavier and 15 years older
than I was back in 1991.
That doesn't mean I don't
have goals. A realistic one is to
break the 4-hour mark, which
is a pace of about 9 minutes
per mile. Last February I ran
the Tampa marathon in a lit-
tle more than 4 hours, 12
minutes.
This also will be the last
marathon I ever run as a sin-
gle man. The Fiancee and I


walkers can still register for
the event, but there will not
be race-day registration. Ad-
ditional information is avail-
able at sarasotamarathon
.com. Marathon proceeds will
benefit the Sarasota Family
YMCA.
County Line 5K Run -
Englewood YMCA will pre-
sent the annual County Line
5K Run at 8 a.m. Sunday, May
14, at Englewood Beach on
scenic Manasota Key Beach
Road. Cost is $15 in advance,
and $18 on race day. Send e-
mails to Cyndi Pelletier, well-
ness director at Warren
Loranger YMCA, Englewood,
at cpelletier@engymca.org
for more information.
Weekend walks
The Saturday morning


will make mthe promise of ior-
ever April 29.
All of these details will go
into my memory of this
Sunday's race, which is the
first marathon ever to be held
in Sarasota.
These memories remind
me that running is about
more than physical fitness
and time goals.
Running is about living life
to its potential. Running is
about doing what once
seemed impossible, and ap-
preciating every moment we
have on this planet.
It's all that, as well as trying
to flatten the stomach by
wedding day.
So what's your memory of
Sarasota Marathon going to
be? Why don't you e-mail me
and let me know. We'll pub-
lish the best ones inside of

f doctors had x-ray vision, they
could simply look at your organs,
bones, circulatory system and
more to determine exactly how
healthy you are or why you are
experiencing problems. Diagnostic
medicine han t reached that point
yet. but it's gotten a lot closer
with the high-speed, 64 "slice" CT
scanner-now at Venice Regional
Medical Center's HealthPark.

Introduced to the world in the
spring of 2005, this exciting new
technology provides remarkably
clear, real-time dynamic images
of organs like the heart, brain and
lungs. Physicians can actually
evaluate plaque in your arteries,
spot blood clots before they cause
strokes, or observe tumors as they
respond to treatment. The non-
invasive scans take seconds and
require no hospital stay

New Technology Redefines
Diagnostic Medicine
We're proud to be one of the first
to bring this technology to South
Sarasota County because it raises
the bar in healthcare for our region.
Now we can diagnose problems
earlier and more accurately, which
means treatment can be provided
sooner. It's a new way for us to look
at you. And it will change the way
you look at healthcare for good.

please call 497-7800.

do I do? -TORN IN ALBANY,
CALIF.
DEAR TORN: I respect the
fact that you are a sensitive
young man with a con-
science. This predicament
should have taught you that
even a small lie can assume
gigantic proportions and
eventually bite you in the.'
fanny. If you intend to ask
Amber out anytime soon, you
should first have a chat with
Tara and explain that you
weren't entirely truthful with
her regarding your parents'
restriction on dating. Tell her
that you like her as a friend -
and hope you will always be
friends but you would not
be comfortable dating her -
at least not right now. (Which
leaves the door open for you
to date her in the future, if you
ever change your mind.)
DEAR ABBY: When some-
one gives a wedding or
Christmas gift of wine or
uncooked meat, are you sup-
posed to have the giver over
for dinner when you serve it?
Please note that they were not
intended to be served or
cooked at the time the gift was
given.
My husband and I are
unsure about what to do, but
we lean in opposite directions
on what is proper. -
"CASSIE" IN PITTSFIELD,
MASS.
DEAR "CASSIE": When a
gift is given, it belongs to the
recipient to do with as he or


she chooses. No rule of eti-
quette obligates you to share
it with the giver.
