On the cusp of a school transformation


Principal Candace Millington explains why sup-
porting Referendum 2006 is critical to success at
Venice High School.


I RE E E D M 2 0


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Key programs and new
reforms taking place in area
high schools could be in jeop-
ardy unless the March 14 ref-
erendum passes, according to
school officials.
Voters will decide whether
to continue the current 1-mill
education tax another four
years, raising anywhere from
$215 million to $250 million
to supplement the Sarasota
County School District oper-
ating budget.
Each school has developed
a handout that lists how


much of the 2002 referendum
dollars it received, and the
positions funded, along with
other benefits.
Venice High serves 2,180
students with roughly 180
staff and has a $10.8 million
budget. A failed referendum
would mean a direct loss of
$1.5 million.
Losing 14 percent of its
operating budget, the equiva-
lent of 18 full-time classroom
and other positions, would
not only be financially disas-
trous, said principal Candace
Millington, but would undo
key changes the school is
Undergoing.
"I went through that be-
fore," Millington said, refer-
ring to the failed 2001 referen-
dum that resulted in $37 mil-


lion in cuts districtwide.
"We're on the cusp of a
major transition in our
schools. We're just now mak-
ing real inroads through
some of our changes and new
programs. It would be a huge
setback to start over," she
said.
Yes and no
A "Yes" vote on the referen-
dum assures referendum-
funded positions and pro-
grams remain in place. A "No"
vote means at least some key
positions will disappear.
Worse, said Millington, a
failed' vote could set into
motion a series of events
dreaded by every school prin-
cipal bumping. Many of
the cut positions would be
dropped through attrition,
but many would be sur-
plused. Surplused teachers
would line up for re-hire posi-
tions in others schools based
on seniority.


"Bumping is really demor-
alizing for our teachers. If we
lose all this ... student
achievement will go down,"
Millington said.
That's because some of
those positions are key to the
school's success, Millington
said. She attributes improved
scores and graduation rates
and more students taking
advanced placement courses
at the school directly to posi-
tions created with funds
raised from the 2002 referen-
dum.
Positions like the school's
literacy coach and data coach
are very important for profes-
sional development, Milling-
ton said. Along with the test
coordinator, those positions
have been responsible, for
ushering in the new Sarasota
County Planning Tool, a read-
ing test that helps gauge how
students are doing in relation
to FCATs, giving the school a
preview of FCAT perfor-

lars have freed up other
resources and educators to
work on transitioning schools

March will be a big month
in the ongoing saga of the
widening of the Venice
Bypass.
Well. it will at least be one
where some movement is
made, although there will be
few promises made about
when construction will actu-
ally take place.
2 This was the message de-
livered by Florida Depart-
.. ~ment of Transportation Dis-
trict 1 Secretary Stanley Cann

ganization.

the impact on businesses

and the impacts would have
been less.
Fast forward nearly 20
years the widening has not
begun and the existing plans
would mean severely affect-
ing dozens of businesses.,
Another factor would be
the cost.
When *FDOT put the
widening in its future plans in
2003, the estimated cost for
just buying the right of way
was estimated at $50 million.
It has increased to about $72
million, with no sign ofletting
up, Cann said.
During a series of meetings
- including a public work-
shop March 16 at the Venice
Community Center and pre-
sentations to the Venice City
Council and Sarasota County
Commission FDOT staff
will offer two alternative de-
sign options.
The first would reduce the
right of way costs to $31 mil-
lion; the second would re-
duce the costs to $21.7 mil-
lion.


"They are more in the ball-
park to moving ahead," Cann
said.
The reduced right-of-way
requirements would only
slightly reduce the costs of the
$31 million construction esti-
mate.
Venice City Council memn
ber Vicki Taylor said that
while the information provid-
ed by Cann is encouraging, it
does not provide any definite
prospects for getting the work
done. ,
"I haven't seen the plans,
so it is too early to know what
the new route would look
like," Taylor said. "I don't want
to get my hopes up."
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Nora Patterson had her
own reservations about
changes to the design.
"What are we going to

walks? Bike paths? I just don't

Good morning, Gondolier
Sun subscriber,
SALLY STRAIGHT


In his 30 years with Venice
Police Department, there
have been more than a few
times that Jim Hanks wit-
nessed a city manager pres-
suring a police chief to do
something unethical or ille-
gal.
Those police chiefs could
say no with the comfort of
knowing only Venice City
Council had the power to sus-
pend or fire them.
I That would no longer be
the case if that disciplinary
power is taken away from city
council and given to the city
manager, as has been pro-
posed.
"In my 30 years, there's
been times where the charter
has been a godsend to the
police chief," said Hanks, who
retired Tuesday as VPD chief,
to the Charter Review Com-
mittee on Thursday.
"It would make it awkward
for any police chief if he had
to report on a string to a city
manager in the midst of an

ATA GLANCE
The Charter Review Committee is considering four major revisions
to the city charter, which is Venice's constitution. Three of the four
proposals would grant more power to the city manager, while the
fourth proposal would alter term limits for council members.
The next public meeting is at 1:30 p.m. March 16 in council cham-
bers of city hall. Public input is asked for at every meeting, as there
will be a potential vote this November.
The four proposals are:
* To give the power to fire and suspend police and fire chiefs to
the city manager. As of now, city council must approve any sus-
pensions or dismissals.
* To eliminate the charter officer status of the finance director. The
entire finance department and its director would report directly to
the city manager. As of now, all four charter officers city man-
ager, finance director, clerk and attorney -' are equals and have
no authority over each other.
* To give the city manager the ability to launch management
audits of city departments without seeking city council approval.
* To eliminate the one-year waiting period to run for mayor for a
council member who has reached his or her nine-year term limit.


investigation."
None of those situations
happened under City Man-
ager Marty Black. But under
previous administrations,
Hanks said, city managers
have tried to quash subpoe-
nas and interfere with investi-
gations.

(Friday) at 5 p.m. Galleria Plaza is at the Alligator junction
of Tamiami Trail, near the British Open Pub in South
Venice. As for the name, according to Chris Dugger, vice
president of business development for Frank Theaters, "It
is definitely going to be an 11-screen theater at this stage.
Another room is available, but it is so small it would only
hold around 60 seats and therefore not be worthwhile."
The existing 11 theaters can hold 2,200 moviegoers.

STAFF REPORT

The Venice Taxpayers
League is seeking to have all
constitutional offices in the
county, with the exception of
the clerk of courts, made
appointive posts.
Numerous other citizen
groups have been seeking
similar action. The Sarasota
County Charter Reviewv Board
would have to put the mat-
ter to the public for a refer-
endum before the present
elective system could be
changed.
These posts would include
the property appraiser, tax
collector, sheriff and super-
visor of elections.
Sheriff Jimmy D. Hard-
castle agreed with the con-
cept but only as long as the
sheriff's office is responsible
to the county commission
directly and not the county
administrator.
"It is our feeling that the
duties of these officers are
spelled out by state statute
and that they have little or no

discretionary or policy mak-
ing authority," said George
Donovan, president of the
VTL.
"Consequently, we see no
need for their election by
popular vote. Their appoint-
ment would put their bud-
gets under mandatory con-
trol of the county commis-
sion and would eliminate
the practicee of these officers
employing their own attor-
neys," he went on.
The VTL feels that the
clerk should retain his elec-
tive office to keep his inde-
pendence and act as a sys-
tem of checks and balances
on the county finances.
Strongly favored is the
appointment of an in-house
, attorney to handle all county
matters for all offices rather
than the present contract
systems. At present several
attorneys represent various
offices.
The VTL, the Sarasota
Community Action Council
and other civic groups be-
.lieve an in-house attorney


would save the county con-
siderable money each year.
Another area of change
recommended by the VTL to
the review board, is to avoid
duplication of authority in
all matters except pollution
control, well drilling and ani-
mal control. These areas
should be controlled by the
county both in and out of
municipalities.
A present county ordi-
nance says all county ordi-
nances will take effect with- 3
in the cities unless the mu-
nicipalities have ordinances
already dealing with a given
matter.
Venice has an ordinance
saying no county ordinance
shall bind the city unless the
city council passes a resolu-
tion approving the county
ordinance.
The VTL feels the entire
situation becomes unwieldy.
A tax district should be
created to provide munici-
pal support services to all
unincorporated areas of the
county, Donovan explained.
Donovan said the VTL
feels the West Coast Inland

Road efficiency is all in the engineering design


There's more to planning a road
than just connecting a line
between two points a lot more.


BYBOBREDDY
STAFF WRITER


Land purchase and con-
struction are all most people
know about what goes into
building a road.
But one piece of work that
is often overlooked is the de-
sign phase.
That is the part of the
work that will decide what
the road will look like when
it is complete, and it deter-
mines exactly which path it
will take and what impact it
will have on the surrounding
community.
Development is broken
down into several phases: 30
percent, 60 percent, 90 per-
cent and 100 percent. The
completion of each phase
triggers more activities that
lead directly into the con-
struction phase.
Ha Kurz, Sarasota County
manager of road project
design, said the project must
be prioritized and a staff
member must be assigned to
the project. A consultant is
also brought in to address
environmental, noise and
alignment impacts.
Once those details are
approved by county commis-
sioners, the initial design


"We do try to put roads
where they are needed the
most, but sometimes they
don't always fit," she said.
Talking points
I Designers also must com-
municate with other depart-
ments within the county,and
beyond.
For example, if a road
needs to be torn up to be
widened, tearing up the
ground once makes sense,
especially if water lines need
to go through the same
area.
"We've delayed projects
for that," Kurz said. "It just
makes sense."
Charlotte County Public
Works Director Tom O'Kane
said the design phase can be
the most treacherous.
Coordinating with depart-
ments within the county gov-
ernment structure can be
tricky enough, but coordin-
ating with various utilities,
such as power, cable and
phone companies, can create
delays also.
"You'd be surprised how lit-

their own underground lines
are," O'Kane said.

Designated no-smoking area at beach might be suggested


County commissioners have discussed a smoking
ban at beaches and parks to reduce litter. An
advisory board might suggest a designated
no-smoking area at one beach to see if people
cooperate.


BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

Cigarette-butt litter at
beaches and parks is one of
those pesky issues Sarasota
County officials are reluctant
to crack down on because
enforcement comes with a
price tag, but they may be
persuaded by the apparent
failure of a one-year public
education effort.
"We met last October to
review where we stand on


this," said former County
Parks and Recreation Advis-
ory Board Chair Dren Geer.
"While there was no vote,
there was a consensus the
county should take one
beach and try creating a no-
smoking area."
There is ample precedent
for smoking bans at public
beaches. California address-.
ed the proliferation of litter
and trash by setting aside 40
miles of "smoke-free" beach-
es.


If Sarasota County follows
suit, it would be the first
county in Florida to follow the
example.
Commissioner David Mills
has consistently pushed for a
smoking ban at county
beaches, but has never mus-
tered the three votes to draft
an ordinance and hold public
hearings on what could be a
politically controversial issue.
He will soon have another
chance.
The Parks and Recreation
Advisory Board is scheduled
to make an annual report to
the commission this spring,
and newly seated chair Millie
Small should provide an
update based on beach litter
data provided by the county's
Keep Sarasota Beautiful pro-
gram.


"I've worked with Millie on
the report," Geer said. "Keep
Sarasota Beautiful did a
beach cleanup at the end of
last summer. My understand-
ing is there was no progress. If
anything, it was probably a
little worse. What I'm saying is
not official, but it's my per-
ception of where we are."
Wise guys
Rather than saddle sher-
iff's deputies with the respon-
sibility of enforcing anti-litter
laws, County Parks Manager
John McCarthy has suggested
park rangers could be trained
in code enforcement duties
and issue citations for such
infractions as littering.
"I'm willing to look at a no-
smoking area, and I'm for try-
ing this at Siesta Beach


because it is the most popu-
lar," Mills said. "If three (com-
missioners) say we should do
this, then we'll have to pro-
vide the manpower to do it. It
should be pretty easy to get a
handle on."
The county used to employ
park rangers, but they were
absorbed into the sheriff's
department years ago and
disappeared.
Lee County has employed
park rangers since the mid-
1980s. They've taken on code
enforcement to help main-
tain new park sites.
In 2004, McCarthy raised
the issue of smoking and dis-
carded cigarette butts when
he reported on the county's
efforts to maintain, parks,
beaches and environmentally
sensitive lands.


He concluded that park
rangers could help, but the
recommendation has never
been acted on.
"Enforcement would be
complicated if the county,
passed a no-smoking ordi-,
nance today and the respon-
sibility fell on lifeguards,":
Geer said. "It would distract
them from their duties and
it's not their job. But pure
education has not worked." ,
Nobody at this point
knows how successful desig-
nated no-smoking areas at)
the county's public beaches'
would be without enforce-'
ment provisions.
"Most people. would con,-
form," Geer predicted, "but;
there would probably be,
some wise guys who refuse to
go along."


Sarasota County expands parks advisory board


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


Three new positions have
been added to the Sarasota
County Parks and Recreation
Advisory Council to address
the growing responsibility of
buying neighborhood park
lands.
The Sarasota County com-
missioners agreed to the
expansion rather than ex-
pand the Environmentally
Sensitive Lands Oversight
Committee, saying that while


both boards are interested in
buying land, the complexities
of each is different. ,
They made their decision
against the staff recommen-
dation.
"Parks require a higher
level of coordination with a
limited amount of space,"
said commissioner Jon Thax-
ton. "Environmentally sensi-
tive lands are easy. We know
where they are and we go out
and try to buy them."
Commissioner Shannon
Staub echoed the thought,


adding that when dealing
with urban green space. there
is a need for urgency.
"It needs to get off the
dime quickly," Staub said.
She added that a need to
deal with the different munic-
ipalities is also key.
The parks board has a
member from each munici-
pality in the county: Venice,
Sarasota, Longboat Key and
North Port.
The commissioners were
.debating the issue because
county staff believed it might


be easier to deal with the
extension of the environmen-
tally sensitive land program
to include neighborhood
park land acquisition in the
oversight committee.
County Parks Manager
John McCarthy said that a
team approach in buying the
land would be a better use of
staff time and money.
Commissioners were wor-
ried about the merged buying
team being dominated by the
more experienced sensitive
lands people.


Staub suggested that if
someone on the environmen-
tally sensitive lands board
would want to serve on the
parks board, it would create
an ideal situation. The com-
missioners did not mandate
that someone from the other
board serve, McCarthy said.
The thought was that includ-
ing someone from the busi-
ness community or environ-
mental background in gener-
al, as at-large members,
would add a new depth to the
parks board needed to take
into the land acquisition
process.
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson said expanding the
existing board made the most
sense in achieving all of the
goals of both boards since,
they have different goals
using the same source of
money.
I.-


With the commissioners'
decision, there are three new
openings as well as an open-,
ing for a spot as the represen-
tative from North Port.
"There has been a vacancy
for some time," McCarthy said.
Anyone interested in ap-
plying for the vacant posts
can go to scgov.net and click
on the link for the advisory
boards to find the applica-
tion. People can also call 861-.
9864.
Candidates' resumes will
be collected and eventually
put before the county com-,
missioners. The North Port
candidate will be selected by,
the city commissioners and
forwarded to the county com-
missioners for formal accep-
tance.

City may be barking



up wrong antenna


A ham radio operator contends federal law
prevents the city code board from making him


shorten his 60-foot-tall m

BY JJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

For almost a year, the city
of Venice has been sending
letters telling Stewart Haag
his 60-foot radio antenna
isn't allowed in his residential
neighborhood without a
building permit and a special
exception.
Haag never answered.
He never responded to
Municipal Code Enforcement
Board orders and fines of
$15,900 dating back to last
August, either.
But on Thursday, the own-
er of 113 La Palma Court
showed up with his attorney
after the city announced a
month ago it would start fore-
closure proceedings and take
his house in order to recover
the fines.
Robert Lincoln, attorney
for Haag, rattled off a series of
reasons why the order and
fines are not justified -
improper hearing notice 10
months ago, incorrect cita-
tions to ordinances, and a
lack of proof the retractable
antennae was extended be-
yond the 35-feet height limit
every day.
On top of all that, Lincoln
said state and federal ama-
teur radio operator laws pre-
vent the city from restricting
the tower. Haag claims his
tower is the only one in the
Venice area for radio and


ast.

internet connections during a
time of emergency.
Code board chairwoman
Diana Mier was stern in
asking Haag why he has
ignored the city for almost
a year and never told them
this before.
"I didn't feel like I had to
because of the ... state law,"
Haag said.
Un-noticed
Lincoln claimed Haag
never received the letters
because they were sent to the
address he uses for property
taxes, 153 Venice Palms Blvd.,
which is where Haag's son,
David, lives.
Board members were sus-
picious of this explanation,
saying they find it hard to
believe Haag's son didn't for-
ward the information to his
father.
Lincoln countered that
among the city notices Haag
did open, it does not state a
property owner's right to con-
test, Lincoln said.
"This does not tell a per-
son that receives it that per-
son has a right to appear and
appeal it," Lincoln said after
the meeting. "A lot of people
don't get it, when they get
these notices, what they
mean. ... (Haag) didn't until
the city sent him a bill (in
December)."
The case was continued
until the April 6 code board


meeting while City Attorney
Wayne Hall tracks down the
original hearing notice from
last summer to confirm that
proper notice was given.
Hall also said he needs to
see specific references to state
and federal laws restricting
the city's ability to regulate
the radio tower.
Haag did admit under
oath the tower is extended
beyond the 35 feet height
limit whenever he is home.
Enforcement
The code enforcement
case started last May follpw-
ing a storm that snapped-the
tower in two. Code Enforce-
ment Officer John Patek is-
sued a notice that Haag
must obtain a special excep-
tion in order to have the
tower in a residential neigh-
borhood.
No permit of any kind was
obtained, and the tower was
back up by mid-June 2005.
Patek issued a citation and
when that was ignored, the
case came before the code
board in August 2005 for
possible fines. Two neighbors
attended that meeting, de-
scribing their "horror" that
such a tower could exist in
their residential neighbor-
hood.
Lincoln said his client will
apply for a special exception
if needed, but regardless,
Venice cannot make him
remove the radio tower.
"The city doesn't have the
authority to deny him a spe-
cial exception permit to have
that tower there," Lincoln
said.


State IDs few problems in comp plan


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County officials
received good news when
they learned the state had only
three problems with their
proposed amendments to the
comprehensive plan.
Those problems will be
addressed in the next 60 days
through a series of public
hearings and the solutions
sent to the Florida Depart-
ment of Community Affairs
for final approval.
The DCA response came in
the form of a letter com-
monly referred to as a Ob-
jections, Comments and Rec-
ommendations report -
which provided overall praise
for the county's proposed
Evaluation and Appraisal Re-
port-based amendments to
the 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 ensuing
planning period," wrote
Mike McDaniel, DCA's growth
management administrator,
in a cover letter to the report.
The county reviews its
comprehensive plan every
seven years in order to identi-
fy and respond to changing
trends and conditions in the
community, as well as chang-
ing state and regional growth
management policies.
The process results in
amendments that keep the
plan aligned with community
values and visions. The re-
view process include public
input on a variety of issues
from growth, neighborhood
planning, water policies and
other issues that define the
quality of life in Sarasota
County.
From December 2004 to
March 2005, county staff


conducted 19 public work-
shops seeking comments
from the public for amend-
ments to the comprehensive
plan. These public workshops
were followed by 15 special
public hearings by' the plan-
ning commission from May
2005 to August 2005 regarding
the proposed changes. The
county commissioners then
held 14 public hearings from
September to December be-
fore approving the amend-
ments for transmittal to DCA
on Dec. 14.
DCA did raise three issues
of concern in the report that
the county must address:
Expansion of the urban
service boundary along State
Road 776. The county rezon-
ed part of a 131-acre site, half
of which is outside the reach
of water and sewer services.
The location of the pilot
affordable housing overlay
district outside of the Urban
Service Area beyond the
reaches of infrastructure -
and in an area where there
would be one home per every
5 acres.


Coordination with the
school board regarding future
schools located in.rural areas.
The school district offered
a similar objection to a 292-
acre site east of Interstate 75
on Palmer Boulevard, saying
such a development, with
more than 1,400 people,
could pose a burden on the
district considering how far
/ the development would be
from the nearest schools.
Planning Services staff will
work with DCA regarding the
three issues and must resolve
them, either by abiding by
DCA recommendations or
offering a reason for going
against the county's own land
use plans.
The county will act upon
the proposed amendments
by holding public hearings
before the county commis-
sioners in April.
A copy of the report is
available online at scgov.net/
ear or at the county's Plan-
ning Services office on the
first floor of the County Ad-
ministration Center, 1660
Ringling Blvd., Sarasota.

power to the city manager,
while the fourth proposal
would alter term limits for
council members.
Hanks and Interim Police
Chief Dan McGoogan each
spoke. about how changing
the disciplinary procedure
would affect the job. The pro-
posal would give. the. city
manager the power to termi-
nate or suspend a police or
fire chief, something only city
council can do now.
The outgoing chief said it's a
nice cushion during difficult
times, while McGoogan was a
bit hesitant to state his position.


McGoogan pointed out the
city manager already handles
all day-to-day operations,
and can issue oral and written
reprimands of the chief.
"Let's cut to the chase.
Dan, who's your boss?" asked
Greg Roberts, charter, review
chair.
"The city manager," Mc-
Googan said.
Checks and balances
The proposals to amend
the city charter keep coming
back to the concept of checks
and balances. The chiefs are
in charge of public safety and,


as Hanks pointed out, the city
founders felt as if that extra
level of review was needed.
The second proposed
charter change would make
the finance director a regular
employee who reports to the
city manager instead of a
charter officer equal in power
to the city manager.
McGoogan, Deputy Fi-
nance Director JoAnne
Lounsbury and newly hired
Finance Director Jeff Snyder
said employees of the city
manager can always go pub-
lic if they disagree with man-
agement decisions.


Both. Lounsbury and Sny-
der said they would refuse to
sign checks they questioned,
even if the city manager was
their boss and ordered them
to do so. Snyder even said he
would quit his job if pres-
sured to do something uneth-
ical or illegal.
"I don't believe it would
(affect my decision-making),"
said Snyder, whose first day on
the job was Monday. "I would
do what I believe is right, no
matter who I report to."

for the right of way or con-
struction, the cost saving in
design is artificial.
Manatee County Commis-
sioner Joe McClash said that
while saving $40 million on
the project is a noble effort,
not having a funding strategy
builds false expectations to
get a project completed.
"It is a waste of money to
design a project without a
funding strategy," McClash
said. "You need to see the pro-
ject to the finish."
Cann said designing pro-
jects well in advance is a nor-
mal practice, so that when
money for construction be-
comes available the project
can move forward without
delay.
FDOT officials want to pro-
ceed with the planning for the
Venice Bypass because "we
want to keep a\ positive out-
look," he said.
McClash said providing
false expectations is unfair,
"I have been dealing with
this for 15 years and there is
still no dedication to get it
done," he said.

quarter-billion VIEW




A quarter-billion is just too much money


ou may be wondering what we think
about extending the 1-mill school prop-
erty tax. Well, we're struggling with it.
Contrary to what many partisans for and
against the tax are saying, this is a tough deci-
sion.
We're not at all happy with Florida's low
ranking in per-pupilfunding, or the fact that
state law mandates a balancing of funding
among the counties that makes supplement-
ing those state funds a necessity if voters
don't want to settle for mediocre schools.
All of Florida's children deserve better, not
just those in counties whose voters can be
persuaded to pass tax referenda.
But we're not convinced approving an
additional $250 million or so over the next
four years is going to bring us the results we'd
expect for that kind of money. Less money
hurts schools, but that doesn't mean a, lot
more money necessarily helps them a lot.
There's no question our schools needed
the money from the first referendum. Too
many programs and too many positions had
to be cut to keep the budget in line, and the
students were suffering for it.
Four years later, however, it's not clear how
much they have benefited from' the roughly


$150 million the referendum brought in -
thanks to skyrocketing property values,
about 50 percent more than officials expect-
ed.
Hundreds of jobs were created, but there's
little evidence so far that students are being
better educated. The conventional wisdom is
that is takes more than four years to show
those gains. We hope we see them soon.
And what happened to the much-bally-
hooed oversight committee that was sup-
posed to scrutinize the use of the referendum
dollars? "Oversight" turned to "overlook," as
everything the district did was rubber
stamped.
There is still some confusion over whether
the referendum was sold in 2002 as a one-
time fix. It's certainly the case that its propo-
nents played down the possibility of seeking
its renewal four years later. And it's even more
certain that no one could have foreseen in
2002 that the district would get about $150
million over the next four years, or an esti-
mated $250 million the following four if it is
renewed.
That's a LOT of money. Too much, we
think.
Superintendent Gary Norris' NeXt Gener-


ation learning plan is an ambitious program
to prepare our students for life in the 21st
century. He's correct that education as most
of us have known it won't cut it in a world in
which fewer and fewer jobs will requite
someone to work a machine other than a
computer all day.
But NeXt Generation is a bit of a gamble.
It's not as if there haven't been computers in
our schools for years, and they don't seem to
have had much of an impact on achieve-
ment.
And the changes to be implemented dis-
trictwide are broad and even radical, in some
cases. Opposition among teachers who
stand to make more money if the referendum
is renewed suggests there will be problems'
until everyone buys into NeXt Generation or
the recalcitrants leave the system.
Perhaps most troubling is that voters are
virtually being extorted into voting for the
referendum.
Four years ago a "No" vote meant preserv-
ing the status quo, and that just wasn't
acceptable. Today, we are told, a "No" vote.
means salary cuts, fewer counselors, bigger
classes and a host of other dire conse-
quences.


(Of course, it also means a tax cut, but the
emphasis has been on the fact that continu-
ing it does not mean a millage increase,
though your taxes go up as the value of your
property does.)
It's good politicking to link an issue to
mom and apple pie; who wants to be respon-
sible for weakening our schools?
But the fact is the district created this
pseudo-crisis by spending all of that windfall,
largely on continuing expenses. Supposedly
district policy precluded salting more away.
That's a policy that needed and still needs
-to be changed.
Suppose the state finally gets per-pupil
funding up to the level it should be at. Or, the
class-size amendment is repealed. Or the real
estate bubble continues to grow. Any one of
those things would dramatically increase the
district's surplus, but the extra money appar-
ently would have to be spent.
And then in another four years ...
So, what do we think of extending the ref-
erendum? We think we'd have enthusiastical-
ly supported an additional half or three-
quarters of a mill and would next year, if
the current one doesn't pass. But at 1 mill, we
just can't get behind it.

MARY KAY RUPPEL


This column is for all of my
fellow computer devotees -
we bleary-eyed addicts who
cannot start the day without
first checking to see if our
baby (computer) has survived
the long night and if it has any
information somehow even
more important than our first
cup of coffee.
Well, recently I had to go
through a serious withdrawal,
through no choice of my own,
and, no, my family had not
performed an intervention. I
believe that a lot of you will be
able to relate to this story.
We are warned constantly
to protect our babies from a
virus. So far, my baby has
been healthy, but like any
other good parent, I am con-
stantly protecting him (it's a
boy) from being attacked,
racked, hacked or just plain
sacked.
Naturally, I subscribe to a
virus protection company
that shall remain nameless as
I do not wish to be sued for
telling the truth. However, I
had decided not to renew the
contract as my Internet
provider was offering "free"'
virus protection. After all, why
should I be paying for a flu
shot when I could get one
free? So, I let it lapse.
Oh, woe is me! When I tried
to get the free virus protec-
tion, it would not download
because it said it detected I
had another system installed.
How could that be? Messages
had been popping up on my
screen for weeks telling me it
was about to expire and final-
ly one day that it had expired.
However, it became like a
bad marriage from which one
could not get a divorce.
I called them and called
them and called them. I wait-
ed and waited and waited.


Finally, a voice came on and
gave me dozens of options
and different numbers to
press in order to proceed.
I finally wrote down the
Web site information they
had given me to uniristall my
product. Iwas pretty exhaust-
ed by now as it was 2 a.m., so
I decided to give it a go in the
morning.
Oh, I forgot to tell you, that
while I was "expired" from my
virus protection, someone
made the decision to block
me from going on my secure
sites. Nothing too serious, just
my banking site.
When trying to get on, I
kept being told I could not
open that page. Being a per-
son of action, I went to my
bank.
With my assistance, they
could get on. Furthermore,
they said that they had placed
no blocks on the site. So what
fascist had done this to me?
I was quite sure I knew.
Because I had not renewed
my antivirus subscription, I
was being barred from know-
ing my own business.
Immediately upon return-
ing home, I got on the persis-
tent antivirus company's Web
site for uninstalling its prod-
uct. The tutorial that comes
on was five pages long, and
believe me, I would have
more luck removing my own
gall bladder than trying to
uninstall my expired virus
protection.
Furious that someone has
been messing with my baby, I
gently place him in his nice,
warm case and gently carried
him to a laptop doctor.
Successful surgery was per-
formed. The antivirus com-
pany's program was removed
and a new protector installed.
We had foiled that fascist
who had infected my proper-
ty, and once again, my private
information was mine.
That's the end of my story. I
have written it as a heads-up
in case any of you should ever
find yourselves in the same
predicament.
Last but not least, beware
of geeks bearing gifts.

Every generation pays it forward


Editor:
There should be no decision whether or not to vote "Yes" in
the March 14 referendum. There should be no ambivalence.
There should be no apathy. There should be no vote other than
a "Yes" vote.
This is not a new tax. It's a continuation of a promise we
made four years ago. It's a promise that must be kept for the
sake of our future sitting in classrooms across our district.
Sarasota County's students must be educated for the "digital
age," the new global economy and tomorrow's changing work-
force.
My children and grandchildren are grown. The quality of
their education directly affects the quality of my life. They are
my health providers, my legislators, my law enforcement offi-
cers, my newspaper reporters, my car mechanics and my
financial advisers.
Empty nesters chose to invest in my education and yours.
We are obligated to do the same for this generation, and the
next and the next.

The water is dirty
enough, thank you
Editor:
I visited the South Jetty this
afternoon and saw the
amphibious vehicle operat-
ing a harbor tour. This was
reminiscent of KeyWest in the
mid '90s.
The city of Key West grant-
ed a permit for those tours.
After a more careful look at
the operation, it realized that
the vehicles were introducing
road grime (oil, grease) into
the waterways and canceled
the permits.
Given the water quality
issues in Venice and Sarasota,
I would hope our officials


would look to eliminate as
many sources of pollution as
they can. This operator can
still give tours of our city, but
to let him add to the water
pollution problem is not in
the best interest of our com-
munity.

America is bad,
but her money is OK
Editor:
I am tired, as are most
Americans, of the continuous
bashing of this country.
Everyone has the right to ex-
press their opinions, but to


continuously condemn the
United States, yet continu-
ously make money from the
country they loathe, is ludi-
crous.
As an independent thinker,
I take exception to these left-
ist-socialistic individuals.
It has long been known
that the communists do not
just hate the American way,
but they reap the profit from
their incredible jeers and
cheers.
Dear readers, remember
when some of them threat-
ened to leave this country?Yet
George Clooney, Richard
Dreyfus, Martin Sheen, Ed As-
ner, Michael Moore, Jane
Fonda, Harry Bellafonte, and
on and on, continue their
loathing diatribe. Oh, throw
in most of the media and
there forms a despicable
group.
We can protest (hate that
word) by not enlarging their
wallet, in many obvious ways.
Americans, support who
you believe in, but anti-U.SA.
rhetoric is unacceptable.
God bless America, always.

President Jimmy Carter even
brought in the wiretapping of
Martin Luther King, which
happened to be done during
the Kennedy administration.
Angry remarks from lead-i
ers Hillary Clinton, Harry,

ard Dean are not helping the
Democrats. We're getting

The Internet is a wonderful
source of information. How-
ever, we must be careful to
check the source of a lot of the

quoted President Bush as say-
ing, "Damn it, the Consti-

It's taxation without representation


Going up. What about the thousands of nonhomestead-
exempt homeowners who live in Sarasota County and pay the
village associated with the school bill? Our taxes go up and up.
True, our house values have also gone up and up, but so have
water, electricity and ,every other bill. We also do not get an
opportunity to vote, so it is taxation without representation.
Isn't that against the Constitution?


Wrong colors. Why is it that
the new kids playground. at
the Venetian Waterway trail-
head, the old chamber build-
ing that the city owns, seems
to be exempt from the city
ordinances as to maintaining
the Venetian theme? It isn't
painted in a color that is com-
patible with what businesses
throughout the downtown
area have to comply with.
How is this?
Vote no. This is about the
school tax they want us to
vote on in March. We're all
going to vote no, the majority
of the callers into your paper
and also the letters to the edi-
tor. We don't feel the school
tax is justified at this point
since there's a surplus and, the
money cannot be explained
properly. We urge everybody
to vote no.
Keep it small. I just want to
make a comment on widen-
ing roads. That's absolutely
ridiculous. To widen Vemce
Avenue would require taking
the businesses out. The side-
walks, the medians, the peo-
ple's houses are there. The
solution is to keep our town
small like it was meant to be.
Go to the state. This family
is voting no. This school dis-
trict always wants more and
more taxes from retirees and
senior citizens who can't
afford it. If they really need
more money, they should go
to the state, now showing an
extra $3.2 billion dollars to
spend.

and art; eop e can take these

Teach them, to read and to
comprehend what they read,
math and the sciences, man-
aging money and things they
need for life.
No more money. I will defi-
nitely be against a school tax
increase. It's not more money,
it's better management that
counts.
What a waste. I'm on the
Venice Avenue Bridge eight,
10, 12 times a day and in a
year's time I have never once
seen a wheelchair pulled over
in a wheelchair area for
another wheelchair to pass. In
fact, I would have to say I have
never seen one on the bridge
period. What a waste of tax
money.
Something else. The per-
son who thinks that some of
the comments are too long in
the Let'em Have It column
really needs to find some-
thing else to complain about
or he or she just does not
need to read them. It's a com-
ment column. You need to
find something else to com-
plain about.


Fallen apart. Let's set the
VPD record straight. The city
of Venice police department
has always provided excellent
service to our Venice commu-
nity with the exception of the
last five years. In the last five
years, management has fallen
apart.
Criminal accusations were
made against fellow officers,
one for theft and one for
pulling a gun on a fellow offi-
cer. Morale became a big
problem, favoritism was giv-
en on promotions, and finally
the Venice Police Department
lost its accreditation. May-
berry never had these kinds of
problems. Andy Griffith and
Barney always got along to-
gether.
Just do it. I had to laugh at
the last two columns. One
said, "Why is Venice in the
dark?" and "Do they get it or
not?" If people would only
realize the voting machines
are for all of the voters in Sara-
sota County, that we could
save money probably
$800,000 a year on optical
scanners and paper ballots
that 75 percent of the rest of
Floridians use, happily, Man-
atee County, our neighbor,
uses this. They save money.
Why can't we?
As a matter of fact, if we
needed to buy these, if you're
worried about the cost of
optical scanners, which could
be paid off in like a year and
half with what we save on
operating them, why not get
some of that $3.2 billion that
you talked about a couple
weeks ago that's state surplus?

First of all, I doift know
why he wouldn't be selected.
He said that no one from his
department had applied for
the position. It didn't say in
the paper that people that
were in the department were -
not invited or told not to
apply. I'd like someone to
check into that. It seems to
me if Mr. McGoogan can work
at city hall .for six or seven
months like he did before,
and he's with the police
department now and he
knows everything, why go


through a year, year and a half
of transition with a new chief
who doesn't know anybody in
town or where to go or what
to do? I don't understand why
he wasn't asked to apply or
was suggested not to apply. I
asked and the reply I got was
they were told not to apply. I
want to know why.
Mixing it up. My number
one subject is how people talk
about the industrial area over
Venice Avenue bridge being a
blighted area. Now, go out
toward PGT and you're going
through an industrial area to
get to a residential area.
You've created a new blightecd
area. You're mixing warehous-
es with residential.
Also, the city wants the
county to go 50-50 on an aeri-
al platform fire truck. The
county doesn't have a need
for it and the city does. If the
city wouldn't have put all
those buildings out. there,
where we don't even have a
park open yet, we wouldn't
need this vehicle. And the
final subject is Ringling arena
is still an eyesore. We need to
improve that. Get the place
boarded up. It's not fair the
city isn't citing itself when it's
citing other businesses. If the
Gondolier Sun had busted
windows and things, it would
be cited. This needs to be
cited. It's a very bad mark on
the city of Venice and the air-
port.
Go hunting.You know, Dick
Cheney on his next hunting
trip ought to take his old
hunting buddy George Bush
with him, you know?
Overkill. I realize that any-
one wishing to sell property
has the right to put out a for-
sale sign, whether by a Realtor
or by owner. But aren't three
or four signs per property a bit
of overkill? It also makes our
city look rather trashy. I was
upder, the impression that the
city of Venice had an ordi-
nance allowing only one for-
sale sign per property. If so,
why isn't that ordinance en-
forced? ,
No buses. This is in regards
to someone who called in
about the spoiled children at
VES are to blame for the traffic
jam. You know, part of the
problem is some of the stu-
dents in that traffic jam live
on the island and don't get a
bus because they live on the
island.
So maybe instead of blam-
ing the children like you're
doing, you should contact the
school board to arrange for
bus transportation so the
children don't get in your way
going to school.

BY NANCY PIKE
GUEST COLUMNIST

If you're able to read these
words, your life is vastly dif-
ferent from the lives of the
estimated 40 million to 44
million American adults who
have trouble filling out a job
application, understanding
the label on prescription
medicine or reading a bed-
time story to a child.
A 1997 study by the Na-
tional Center for Education
Statistics found that between
21 and 24 percent of adults
performed at level 1, the low-
est level, of three literacy
scales. A literacy study re-
leased by the center in 2005
found little change since the
1990s in the ability of a cross-
section of adults to read and
understand the written word.
For the significant number
of people whose literacy skills
are lacking, it can be difficult
to get and keep a decent job,
support their children's edu-
cation and participate active-
ly in civic life.
Communities that have
invested in strong literacy
programs realize significant
returns on their investment in
the form of more productive
citizens who have more op-
portunities. In our communi-
ty we are fortunate that many
organizations help people
develop these skills.
Schools, child-care cen-
ters, libraries and other insti-
tutions help infants and tod-
dlers learn important pre-
reading skills. The Sarasota
County School Board has
placed a literacy coach in
every middle school and high
school. Tutors and volunteers
help support these efforts
with after-school programs.
But literacy is not a valued
skill in some households. In a
world in which TV and video
games are more easily acces-
sible than books, some chil-
dren grow up believing that
reading is not "cool." For too
many kids, reaching for the'
remote control or the joystick
is often the first resort, while

ples for the leaders of tomor-

checking out a book may be
the last.
These and other factors
can lead to deficiencies in
adult literacy.
For various reasons, not all
adults have learned or prac-
ticed basic literacy skills well
enough to manage effectively
in their lives and jobs. So they
need help. And we need to try
to instill the values of literacy
to more children in order to
stop the cycle before it begins.
Because of this challenge,
several groups have decided
to join in a new conversation
about literacy in our commu-
nity. The problem is too large
for any single program or or-
ganization to handle alone,
but working together we can
make a positive impact on
many lives.
Why are libraries involved?
Supporting lifelong learners
is a core service of libraries. As
information and technology
increasingly shape our soci-
ety, the everyday skills adults
need have gone far beyond
reading.
But literacy remains the
foundation of all these skills,
including "computer literacy."
Public libraries are places
where people including
those for whom English is a
second language can learn
and practice these new skills
and learn about other adult
literacy programs in our com-
I munides.
The Sarasota County Li-
brary System provides space


boaters. The problem was
kayaks. Not a few, but more
than 30 that I counted.
We all agree they have as
much right to the waterways
as we do. But the problem
was they were. half in the
channel and on the wrong
side of it.
We were in a headway
zone with signs saying "25
mph." Some boats slowed
down while others did the
speed posted. Some of the
kayakers even yelled to slow
down, as they really were get-
ting a lot of wakes thrown at
them.
I felt they should have
been closer to the edge, but
others felt they shouldn't even
be out there if their boat was-
n't seaworthy.
Another statement was,
"Why did they decide to trav-
el over the weekend when the
Intracoastal is so busy with


for literacy tutoring. We also
sponsor programs such as
Born to Read, which works
with many organizations to
help give parents the tools to
raise their children to be read-
ers and lifelong learners.
For children, public and
school libraries offer many
programs to help them devel-
op their literacy skills, includ-
ing preschool story hours,
reading clubs, homework
help and Internet training.
Despite these community
efforts, the challenge is still
great. Because of the need for
creative solutions we have
joined with many other orga-
nizations including Sara-
sota County Openly Plans for
Excellence, Sarasota County
schools, the Early Childhood
Association, the Early Learn-
ing and Healthy Start coali-
tions of Sarasota County, the
Literacy Council of Sarasota,
Literacy Volunteers of South
Sarasota County and the
Nurturing Dads Initiative, to
name a few to talk about
literacy in Sarasota County.
The conversation will be in
two parts. The first dialogue is
set for 9:30 a.m., Tuesday,
March 7, and the second will
be held at the same time on
Tuesday, April 11. Both ses-
sions will be at.the Girl Scouts
of Gulfcoast Florida Confer-

The discussions will be fa-

Equity One buys





out Venice Plaza


Darby South gains from sale


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS! COLUMNIST


"We're absolutely not af-
fected and will be here for a
long time: I'm too young to
retire," said Scott Frost, presi-
dent of Venice Darby South
Buick Pontiac GMC, 1455
South Tamiami Trail on the
island..
Following reports of the
sale of the Darby Buick
Sarasota dealership to Sunset
Automotive Group, he con-
firmed that that deal had
closed on Monday, although
it had been in progress for
some time. He said the
Sarasota and Venice dealer-
ships have been separate
entities as two stores each
doing their own business.
Clyde Darby Jr. founded
the business in Sarasota in
1954.


Conrad Darby opened
Darby South in Venice in
December 1986, and Frost
has run it for the past 17
years. In 1986 the Venice deal-
ership had 50 employees;
today there are 70.
The property covers 5
acres at the entrance to the
city alongside MarineMax
north of the Circus Bridge.
Fifteen Sarasota Darby
employees have come Jto
Venice. Frost said he had a
number of openings for qual-
ified people and was able to
employ four salespeople, six
technicians and other Buick
Pontiac team members.
"It was a once-in-a-life-
time opportunity to grab that
many people at one time, and
customers will follow them,"
said Frost.
He is anticipating contin-
ued growth of the business


with ,improving General
Motors production and GM's
new products, in particular
the Pontiac Solstice Roadster,
of which he stated they have
pretty much sold their entire
2006 and 2007 allocation.
In 1988 the company
opened the Darby Isuzu deal-
ership to run alongside Buick
GMC products. According to
Frost, the. Sarasota Darby
Buick sale this week has
resulted in the closing of the
Sarasota Isuzu, so he antici-
pates customers will come to
the nearest dealership, here
in Venice.
In recent years because of
the need for additional sales
space, Darby acquired 2 acres
at 1275 US. 41 Bypass, near
the Land of Sleep store, where
it operates its Darby Su-
percenter pre-owned sales
program.

Venice Realtors expand southward


It was 1986 when Marilyn
and Terry Wheeler decided to
leave Mason, Mich., to join
her mom inVenice. Within 12
months they acquired the
Jackie Wheeler real estate
agency, retaining the already
well-established name in this
community.
Now, 20 years later, they
are expanding into North
Port.
Wheeler Real Estate of
Venice Inc., 111 Shamrock
Blvd., Venice, is the home to
their family team-style busi-
ness.
"We are different because
we are conscious of the needs
of buyers arid sellers in trying
to provide the ultimate ser-
vice, even assisting their per-
sonal needs," said Terry
Wheeler.
Twenty years ago it was
very small, but now his wife,
20 agents and daughter Kim,
who graduated from a Vir-
ginia university, make up the
successful Venice team.
"We have done a lot of
work in North Port and it has
grown, so we need a pres-
ence," said Wheeler.
He will be managing the
four-person team operating
from 13035 Tamiami Trail,
North Port, next to Domino's
Pizza on U.S. 41. There are
plans to expand the new
office, and 'maybe down the
road to open a third office, in
Englewood.'
They specialize in residen-
tial real estate in Venice,
North Port, Englewood and
Port Charlotte. Call 496-8700.

"It is still too early to really
discuss the project until we
get the land under control.
We're submitting plans for

.oldtQ, Quirtig schqoa( aL5, he
joined, Genreral Motors as a

employed as a science teacher at
Venice Junior High School and a
guidance counselor at Venice
Middle School until her retirement
in 1986. During her 25 years of
teaching she touched the lives of
many students.
She was the loving mother of her
two sons, Dr. Scott Walker and
Richard A. Walker. She was a
member of Venice Presbyterian
Church, Penn State Alumni Assoc.,
VFW Post 8118 Ladies Auxiliary,
American Legion No-Vel Post 159

Lady Indian train keeps on rolling


Softballers defeat Ranch to
stay unbeaten in district play.

The Venice High girls

something special going.
Larry Sandburg hopes it
continues to build and build
and snowball into the dis-
trict playoffs.
While its awful early to

be thinking about playoffs,
Venice is indeed looking
more and more impressive
as time goes on.
The Lady Indians im-
proved their overall record to
7-1 and their Class 5A District
12 mark to a spotless 5-0 with
a 4-0 victory over visiting
Lakewood Ranch Thursday
night.
Ranch, one
of Venice's chief
4"~ threats in the
,k district, fell to 8-3
and 4-1.
It was more
great pitching
and defense and
timely hitting for
the Lady Indians.
11) "Defense
and pitching
wins games, and
we've been get-
ting both,"
Sandburg .said.
"We still have a
long way to go.
We need to get
better offen-
1 sively. Lakewood
Ranch is a good
team and I'm
happy with the
i win."


This time,
the pitching
came from
Heather Boyts
(3-1), who al-
lowed four hits
and struck out
three. She got a
couple of super
plays in the field
to secure the
"shutout: '
The first
came from
shortstop Brit-


tany Hipple. She stopped a
possible threat in the third
inning by diving in back of
second base to grab a
grounder up the middle by
Kelsey Grabiak. She had the
presence to flip to second
baseman Kristen Bailey to get
a force on Ashley Hanewich
and end the inning.
The other eye-opening
web gem came from Bailey at
second base. It came in the
sixth inning. Once again,
Hanewich was on base. Gra-
biak hit a low liner between
first and second. Bailey dove
to take away the hit, then
fired to second to nail Hane-
wich off the bag for the
double play.
Venice got offense from
the 2-3-4 spots in the order.
Felicia Taylor was 2-for-2 and
reached base all four times up.
Hipple was 3-for-4 and was
robbed of another hit by the
left fielder. Maureen Sandidge
had a couple of clutch hits to
drive in three runs.
In the third, Taylor led
off with a single to left. Hip-
ple followed with a line lit
to right-center. Sandidge
grounded the ball up the
middle to bring in Taylor.
The Lady Indians then had
the bases loaded \with no-
body out, but failed to score
any more.
Venice opened it up with
a three-run fourth. Molly
Brandow walked. Taylor had
an infield single. Hipple sin-
gled to left to load the sacks.
Sandidge went the other way
with a single past the first
baseman, plating t\o runs
to make it 3-0. Bailey follow-
ed with a RBI groundout.
Venice had, the bases.


:laded in the fifth.- but-'-
Hipple's screamer to left was
corralled by Becca Seay.
Venice is at Fort Myers-


Bishop Verot Friday night.
In junior varsity action,
Venice improved to 8-0 with a
25-0 bombing of Ranch.
Stephanie Sullivan was 5-for-


1;:


5. Amanda Harvey had four
hits, five RBIs and scored five
times. Becca Juntunen and
Katelynn Albert each had
three RBIs.

Baseball can be a very
funny game. In this instance,
we're not talking about ha,
ha, ha.
Just when you think you
have it figured out and have
all the pieces to success in
place, something comes out
of the blue to make you
scramble.
The Venice High baseball
coaching staff, in particular
pitching coach Jeff Callan,
are scratching their heads
over their luck.
"in a span of 48 hours, we
lost our number one and


number two pitchers," Cal-
lan said. "They were pitch-
ing so well."
No. 2 pitcher Martin
Kenealy hurt his right elbow
in his last action Feb. 21 at
Port Charlotte. Then two
nights later, No. 1 Jordan
Lucas felt a twinge and was
taken out of a game at
Southeast.
Of the two, Lucas' injury
appears to be less serious.
He tore cartilage in his ribs.
Callan is hoping the hard-
throwing right-hander will
be back in a couple of weeks.
Kenealy, another junior

bow. He, is undergoing

timely philosophy.

5 Nearing the club's 40th
anniversary, the board and

the new $3 million clubhouse
Tuesday.
F It's a magnificent achieve-
ment.
Acknowledging that the
clubhouse has taken on a
dated look, general manager
Brian E Matt was effusive in
his praise for the collective
j effort that has taken place
over the winter.
"The members have been
very patient having to'put up
with what was essentially a
hard-hat area as they ate
lunch and dinner but it
was small price to pay. All
Sthe members are very pleas-
ed with the result."
Designed by architect Mat-

possesses an elegant feel,

of chef James Christmas.
And what a gift he's been.
Since his arrival last June
from working as executive
chef at Donald Trump's Mar-
a-Lago private club in Palm
Beach, Christmas has turned
the typical clubhouse fare on
its head and introduced a
menu that keeps the mem-
bership begging for more.
"I really bought into the
whole philosophy of the
board, that they wanted to
reinvent the club. They pre-
sented me with an oppor-
tunity to really make the food
work. The board didn't want
to be just golf club anymore.
They wanted a club that
specialized in golf, but could
offer something special."

icap is that I play golf!"),

What bait should I use in March?


~1


MR. SHEEPSHEAD
FISHING COLUMNIST

Beach: Whiting fishing has
improved. Some are 13-14
inches. Best bait in this order:
live shrimp, small frozen
shrimp or live or cooked
frozen sand fleas.
Pompano: It's almost time
for them to show up on our
beaches. I recommend using
a bottom rig with two kahle or'
circle hooks, a one or two
ounce pyramid sinker and
rigged with fluorocarbon
leader. Throw it out as far as
you can and place in a sand
spike. Remember, do not set
the hook. They will hook.
themselves. My choice: live
or cooked frozen sand fleas.
Others: Black drum and
redfish: This is the, time 'of
the year that they show up
on the beaches. They will hit
all of the baits mentioned.
Jetties: Sheepshead fishing
will gradually slow down as
we get into the middle or end
of the month. As of this-writ-
ing, I'm still doing quite well.
Monday afternoon I caught
four on the South Jetty and
then did even better on the
north side. They seem to go
nuts in the last hour before
dark. I must have caught
seven or eight in that time
period.
Pompano: My favorite way
is to use a small jig. I tip it with
my cooked flea and just slow-
ly bounce it off the bottom. I
do much more bouncing than
retrieving. The mistake most
novices make is to retrieve like
you would for ladyfish or
mackerel.
Others: The mackerel
should,shqw,up in a week-or.

Taking wings by






morning's first light


BY JONATHAN FREDIN
STAFF PHOTOGRAPHER


At the first hint of light
in the skies at the Venice
Rookery, a dozen or so cold
photographers steady their
500 mm lenses on sturdy
tripods, adjust digital camera
exposures and dial down
flashes.
The birds stir, waking from
a night roosting on the tiny
island. And then they fly, a
couple at first, followed by 20
to 30 at once.
Cameras pan and flashes
fire as ibises, herons and
egrets fly overhead.
Capturing flight shots in
low light is hit or miss even


for experienced photogra-
phers, but the results can be
awe-inspiring. The "flight
shot" challenge was put to a
group of serious bird pho-
tographers traveling with
world-famous wildlife pho-
tographer Arthur Morris,
whose bird photography
workshop landed at the Ven-
ice Audubon Rookery on
Feb. 20.
The rookery, maintained
by the Venice Audubon So-
ciety, attracts many of the
nation's best bird photogra-
phers due to its close prox-
imity and clear visibility.
Beginning photographers, as
well as local legends like. Dr.
John Flower of Englewood,


frequent the nesting site dur-
ing the nesting season, which
runs from November to late
April.
The Rookery is open dur-
ing daylight hours and is free

A home on the Intra-

toward the Venice Jetties is
just the spot to contemplate
the sunsets for which Venice
is as famous as it is for its
sharks teeth. Such a location
is also ideal for Watching the


Fourth of July fireworks and
in December, the annual
Christmas boat parade.
A home with just such
views has recently come on
the market at Harbor Lights

Florida Blood Center


- Utnice is out for Blood


BY JOEL FOSTER
STAFF WRITER


A local child, teen, or adult is
going to die today.
But as Hawkeye Pierce,: irrever-
ent member of MASH 4077 once
said to a severely injured soldier
who was rapidly slipping into the
arms of death: "Come on, live,
damn you! Don't let the bastard
win!"
The bastard being addressed
was death.
Hawkeye didn't get his wish on
that episode, and unless people in
Venice and the surrounding area
don't begin walking through the
front doors of Florida's Blood Cen-
ters or meeting FBC's mobile unit,
the Big Red Bus, at its various
locations, the result is going to be
the same. The difference is that this


BLOOD FACTS
* If everyone committed to donat-
ing blood at least three times a
year, there would be no blood
shortages.
Men who donate regularly -
three times a year are less likely
to suffer a heart attack or stroke,
undergo heart surgery or require
heart medications than men who
do not give blood.
Donations intervals:
whole blood, every 56 days
platelet apheresis, up to 24 times a
year
plasma apheresis, up to 12 times a
year
You must weigh at least 110
pounds to donate.
Age requirements:
18 years old and up,
16 with parental permission
no upper age limit if healthy
There are some temporary and
permanent deferrals. Florida
Blood Centers can provide
information on these.


time it could be a family member,
a neighbor or you unless you make
the difference right now.
"People just aren't aware of
how critical the need is," said Elaine
Davidson, donor development co-
ordinator. "For most, unless they
have been personally touched by
a need of a friend or. family mem-
ber, the idea of giving blood is
not a priority."
If priorities are needed, here are
a few eye openers from the pub-
lished area blood supply for the
week of Feb. 20:
The minimum required number
of units for blood type B positive


SUN PHOTOS BY JOEL FOSTER

The incredible donor: Dick Cotton of Englewood, formerly of Rochester, N.Y., gets smiling encouragement from five-year apheresis technician Bridgett
Mansfield as he relaxes during a session of platelet apheresis. Having started donating in the mid-1980s while with Kodak, Cotton was volunteering for an
amazing and inspirational 130th time. To date, with Florida Blood Centers, Cotton has donated 16.25 gallons of platelets, according to Mansfield. "We
need more people coming though the door," was Cotton's assessment.,


was 100. Units available zero;
blood type B negative, minimum
required, 45 units. Units available,
zero; Blood-type A.positive,.mini-
mum required, 150 units. Units
available 25.
Of the eight blood types listed,
not one had the minimum re-
quired by regional hospitals.
Think about that if you know
of someone who was recently in a
car accident or someone who is
facing an operation.
Davidson said that hospitals
are requiring more blood because
more operations are being per-
formed. The winter residents have
arrived from the north country,
and accordingly the population
has spiked. It's an obvious math
equation.
"Right now, in this office (Tan-
dem Building, 333 Tamiami Trail,
Venice) we need at least 20 people
a day to come through the doors
or be a donor at the mobile unit.


We're seeing three or four."
Such low numbers force Florida
Blood Centers, which is the sole
provider for blood and blood pro-
ducers for Venice Regidnal Medical
Center, to call the distribution cen-
ter in Fort Meyers to make up the
difference. But it becomes a rob-
bing Peter to pay Paul scenario.
Eventually, there might not be
enough in distribution centers to
allocate unless donor numbers in-
crease.
It's an ongoing struggle to first
make people aware of the ongoing
need (the only source is a human
source; it cannot be manufactured
and has a short shelf life), and,
secondly, to transform awareness
into participation. (Only five per-
cent, of the population donates
blood, yet 60 percent of us will


need blood during our life time).
"It's local blood saving local
lives," Davidson added.
But only if the local, blood
becomes available.
With the advance in technology,
the whole-blood-only method --
the one most people recognize
through TV (the IV plastic tube,
and plastic bag) has been given
a large boost: apheresis. In this
technique of ,Specialized LifeLine
Donations, apheresis, or automated
collections, allows the main com-
ponents of whole blood (platelets,
red blood cells, and plasma) to be
collected individually during the
donation process itself. Such cus-
tomized donations allow a hospital
the ability to target needs of spe-
cific patierits, such as someone
undergoing chemotherapy, for ex-


ample, who is need of platelets.
With LifeLines aspheresis, a donor
can now provide platelets only
while the red blood cells and
plasma are returned to his body
in a simple, safe process. Using
the whole blood donations cen-
trifuged into a donation's three
parts, it would take donations,
from five to 10 people to obtain a
large enough dosage for that same
single transfusion of platelets.
In an overview of tfie whole
blood process, once blood is drawn,
small tubes of samples are sent
immediately to the FBC laboratory
in Orlando where it undergoes an
18-houlr battery of tests for such
things as HIF West Nile, hepatitis,
and others.

MARCH 3,2006


Know your macro-


nutrients, Part


CAROLINE CEDERQUIST
COLUMNIST

What if you suddenly dis-
covered that a dangerous,
life-threatening substance
'had made its way into nearly
'half the foods in your super-
'market?
It's not grocery terrorism or
product tampering. It's trans
,fat, and the FDA estimates
that 2,500 to 5,600 deaths per
year could be prevented if
consumers were more in-
'formed about it.
But trans fat is also a criti-
cal tool for commercial food
producers, from grocery
'chains to restaurants. It's
'cheap and easy to make, easy
'to use, easy to store, and it
-extends food shelf life signifi-
;cantly; so food manufacturers
'lobbied long and hard to pre-
,vent any regulation of it,
'including putting it on Nu-
'trition Facts labels.
; The trouble is, of all the
fats, consumers most need to
-know the facts about trans
fats, because quite simply,
they are the most damaging
'and dangerous to health. The
'Institute of Medicine in 2001
issued an unequivocal state-
ment that trans fats "should
not be eaten at all."
Bad news, good news
Advice like that from the
'government's key health advi-
Isor is hard to ignore, and
'finally, in July of 2003, the fed-
eral government took action,
'passing new rules requiring
,food producers to start in-
'cluding trans fats on Nutri-
tion Fac. labels by 2006, list-
ing them separately from
other fat content so con-
'sumers can see how much
'trouble they're bargaining for.
If you're like most Amer-
icans, you've been cutting
'back on dietary fat over the
last 20 years or so, so you may
-wonder what the big deal is
with transfats.
The long-time rascal of
Dietary fat has been saturated
rfat, which is mainly found in
animal products like meat,
butter and cheeses, and veg-
etable oils like coconut and
palm oils. They're considered
the 'bad fats' because they
:can raise your LDL choles-
4terol level, which, increases
.your risk for coronary artery


5:


disease.
But they've got nothing on
trans fats. Also referred to as
"trans fatty acids," trans fats
occur naturally only in tiny
amounts.
Most of us are getting trans
fats made artificially, through
the commercial process of
hydrogenation,* and we're
consuming them in mass
quantities.
Adding hydrogen to unsat-
urated vegetable oils will
make them solid at room
temperature.
Think of that gleaming
white goop that comes in a
can. This is also how mar-
garine is madq, from liquid
vegetable oils.
Though unsaturated fats
are generally less harmful,
though not less fattening,
than saturated fats, the pro-
cess of hydrogenation alters
them at the. molecular level
and turns them into trans
fats, making them assume
many of the characteristics of
saturated fats.
Like saturated fats, these
trans fats in commercial food
products will.offer the benefit
of a longer shelf life.
But they also come with
the downside, because like
saturated fats, trans fats raise,
the "bad" LDL cholesterol
that accumulates in arteries.
The FDA estimated that
informing consumers about
trans fat content on food
labels could prevent 7,600 to
17,000 cases of coronary
heart disease each year, to say
nothing of all those deaths.
The new Nutrition Facts
labels will not have to indi-
cate any daily value percent-
age for tans fats, but afoot-
note will be included saying
that the intake of trans fats
should be "as low as possible."
So until those rules come
into effect, there are some
ways to tell if the products
you are consuming contain

Transfat


the nepharious trans fats.
Know Thy Enemy
Like tobacco, a little bit of
trans fat once or twice-proba-
bly wouldn't harm you. It's the
cumulative effect over time
that does the damage. Trans
fats appear in more than 40
percent of standard grocery
items!
Just knowing the usual sus-
pects is a good start in pro-
tecting yourself. Many pro-
cessed foods contain trans.
fats. Foods like french fries,
fried chicken, fish sticks or
virtually any batter-dipped
and fried foods will contain
trans fats because they are
fried in hydrogenated fat.
Trans fats are also found in
almost all margarines. They're
also in most pastries and
doughnuts, chips, cookies'
and microwave popcorn.
In fact, most commercial'
snackfoods are guaranteed to
be trans fat carriers. It just
makes sense, doesn't it? Food
producers are looking to get
that longer shelf life and satsi-
fy customers' flavor expecta-
tions by keeping their prod-
ucts fresher longer.
Through Thick & Thin:
As dangerous as they are,
trans fats are not listed on
food labels as such. So to tell
if a product has trans fat in it,
look for the words "hydro-
genated" or "partially hydro-
genated" on the ingredient
list. The higher in the ingredi-
ent list that hydrogenated oils
are listed, the more trans fats
there are in the product.

Neosporin LT: This lip
ointment contains a skin

Campho-Phenique: They

the ingredient petrolatum

Releev: This gel claims to
be able to relieve symptoms

you're allergic to the daisy

Novitra: This cold sore

contains zinc, a mineral


known to shorten duration

canker sores, as well as fever

of the gum and mouth.
Blistex: One of their

Q: I get fever-blisters
sometimes, usually at the worst
possible time. My prom date
wasivery upset when he picked
me up to find a lesion on my lip
the size of a dime! Please tell me
what ointment is best. H.T.,
Birmingham, Ala.
A: Forget looks! These cold
sores hurt and create tin-
gling, blistering and itching.
Experts say that certain sub-
stances trigger lip viruses,
particularly foods high in the
amino acid arginine, such as
brown rice, coconut, oat-
meal, raisins, nuts, chocolate
and caffeine. A different
amino acid called lysine can
be used to prevent them. It is
sold as a dietary supplement
and occurs naturally in beef,
fish, brewer's yeast, cheese,
milk, eggs, potatoes, soy-
beans and yogurt. The body
has to maintain a balance
between arginine and lysine,
so don't overdo either one.
As far as ointments go, it's
impossible to pick the best
because there are so many
that are good. Abreva is a
favorite of pharmacists,
along with any of the other
products used to numb or
dry the lesion. Here's a run-

Resettlement programs help


refugees find employment,


adjust to the community


BY JUDY BOKORNEY
GUEST WRITER

Slav Tkach has a quiet
smile on his face when he
talks about his clients. He
can tell many success stories
about them. Once a refugee
himself from the Ukraine,
Tkach helps ,other refugees
and entrants to find work
here so they can resettle into
the community.
Tkach is the coordinator
of the Catholic Charities
Refugees Employed and Pro-
ductive program in Sarasota
County. He remembers the
man from Cuba who in less
than one year was able to.
secure a mortgage on a Ven-
ice home for his family
because Tkach helped him
get a decent job' making
recreational vehicles. "It is so
important for new refugees
and entrants to secure a job
as soon as possible," Tkach
said. He is proud of the
tenacity many of his clients
have to make it on their own
in a foreign land. Tkach re-
calls feeling that way when-
he arrived in America.
However, getting a job is
only a part of the process
for someone resettling into a
new nation. There are many
other hurdles to overcome
along the way. Through
three programs, Refugee Re-
settlement, Match Grant
and Refugees Employed and
.-Productive, Catholic Charities_
worksk s with clients from the
moment they arrive in
Southwest Florida until they
achieve self-sufficiency.

Ukrainian refugees Natalya Lozbineva (left), and her daughter
Iryna Roshchupka take an employment skills class at Catholic
Charities to prepare for job interviews.


Catholic Charities offers
Refugee services throughout
the 10-county area of the
Diocese of Venice and has an
agreement with, the Depart-
ment of State to assist ref-
ugees with the process of
social and economic adjust-
ment.
It all begins with the Ref-
ugee Resettlement program.
Family members or close
friends living in the United
States file an Affidavit of
Relationship to sponsor a
refugee or entrant. "In order
to be considered a refugee
or entrant you have to
prove to the U.S. Citizenship
and Immigration Services, a
bureau of the Department of
Homeland Security, that you
.have to flee votu country, of
origi because aot .a well-
founded'fear of persecudon,"
said Nancy Rostowsky, ref-
ugee resettlement program


coordinator for Catholic
Charities. "It is not an easy
process, and many are un-
able to explain their stories
because of cross-cultural
barriers."
The U.S. government an-
nually allocates money for
the resettlement of refugees,
who receive the funds and
other assistance when they
first arrive in the country.
After the initial money is
given, the Match Grant pro-
gram is available to help
refugees with the provision
of food, housing, transpor-
tation, employment, transla-
tion and additional cash
allowances. These services
are offered to the client dur-
ing their first 180 days in the

REFUGEES fromPage6B


Choir to


Match Grant caseworker and
a former refugee from the
Ukraine, said the program is
new to Catholic Charities
and very successful. "Match
Grant provides refugees with
more comprehensive assis-
tance when they first arrive
here," she said. Grebinnik
said the program is especi-
ally helpful to refugees with
existing job skills, such as
the two men from the
Ukraine who recently arrived
in North Port with experience
in truck driving and heavy
equipment operation. The
Match Grant program assist-
ed them in obtaining training
and proper licenses and
both immediately found
good employment.
"The Match Grant pro-
gram motivates clients to
seek long-term employ-
ment," said Grebinnik. "Re-
settlement into a community
really cannot begin without
a permanent job." Grebinnik
teaches employment skills to
her clients, enrolls them into
English language classes or
job training or recertification
courses, and assists them
with attaining necessary
health and medical services.
Not all refugees find em-
ployment in 180 days of
arrival. The Refugees Em-
ployed and Productive
(REAP) program that Tkach
runs at Catholic Charities
serves clients for up to five
years. "The American work-
ing culture is often very differ-
ent from what clients are used
to in their homeland," Tkah
said.

objective of the program is to
assist refugees in successful
resettlement through pro-
ductive employment, and
through directing clients to
community resources that
will further help them in
becoming self-sufficient.
"Most significantly, our cli-
ents are referred to good
paying jobs with benefits,"
Tkach said. "The average
hourly pay far exceeds mini-
mum wage."
Last quarter, October
through December 2005, the
average pay for individuals
participating in REAP was
$8.89. Nearly half of the 129
clients served during that
time frame were placed in
good -jobs with benefits as,
available while the rest were
assisted with documentation
and training for their upcom-
ing job placement.
Clients, Tkach said, are
encouraged and assisted with
enrolling in English classes,
opening a savings account,
purchasing a car, repaying
any settlement loans, and
even purchasing a home.
"Budgeting and credit sys-
tems are often new to a
REAP client," he said.
REAP caseworkers provide
job development and refer-
rals through a local job bank
of employers in which they
have a relationship, such as
PGT Industries in Venice. "We
have provided translation for
job orientation such as safety
rules and production instruc-.
tion at PGT for clients who
start working there," Tkach
said. "This relationship helps
to maintain many successful

job placements at PGT In-
dustries."
When possible, casework-
ers develop career advance-
ment opportunities within a
client's existing employment.
Also, a Career Laddering
program is part of the REAP
services for refugees with
existing education degrees
and who can speak English.
Clients are assisted in finding
a job in their trained field of
work. "The role of the REAP
caseworker is to coach the
client in setting and measur-
ing attainable goals," Tkach
said.
"It is the greatest satis-
faction seeing our clients
get a good job," Tkach said.
'JThey are here because they
want better opportunities
for their children or family
members. I went through
that myself and I relied on an
agency just like Catholic
Charities to help me do that."
Rostowsky said she be-
lieves America is so special
because of all the refugees
that have resettled here over
many generations. "People
who come here see the
United States as a safe haven,
a place to have a good life,"
she said.

ELLEN HILLSTROM
COLUMNIST


One of my first reactions to
learning something new and
valuable is to spread the word
as quickly as possible.
I attended the Manasota
Regional Neighborhood
Summit last Saturday and lis-
tened as the lecturer de-
scribed a different way of
looking at community associ-
ations.
He called it the "ABCD"
method: asset-based com-
munity development.
It was such an "aha" to me
and so exhilarating that I will
attempt to outline what it
means in this short article as
it relates to homeowner asso-
ciations.
Acknowledge that every
individual possesses "gifts":
talents, skills and abilities.
These are the assets of the
organization.
Find out what those assets
are through applications for
membership, surveys or
whatever means you can.


This year there are four
sites where you can get free
tax help in preparing your
2005 federal tax return,
through Monday, April 17.
AARP offers free tax help to
low- and medium-income
taxpayers of any age. They do
not do business or complex
individual returns. Be sure to
bring a copy of last year's
return, a photo ID and all tax
documents from 2005
* Jacaranda Public Library,


When you bring members
together, let one another
know what assets or "gifts"
each of them possesses and
1egin to develop relation-
ships with those who are will-
ing to share their individual
assets.
Members at the center will
engage the wider community.
Leadership will grow from the
center of community initia-
tives.
Community-building
leaders have a constituency
of people to involve. The con-
nected group will then have
the motivation to act. They
will have power.
Use that collective power
to accomplish what you want
or need from outside institu-
tions such as government,
business, education or social
services.
The above is only a brief
outline and I probably didn't
describe it well enough. For
more information, go to
Google on the Internet and
type in "asset-based commu-
nity development," where
you will find a treasure chest
of how to get started.
We were given a list of
guiding principles and a
workbook to help us get start-
ed. I can hardly wait to find
out how it may work within
the South Venice Civic
Association.

Betty Jean Keoki Brooks
mixes fun and fitness
Thursday at her
Hawaiian Hula
for Health class.


BY RACHEL ALEXANDER
STAFF WRITER

Some people rumba, oth-
ers salsa and some Engle-
wood residents hula for
exercise and entertainment.
The teacher, who said
she's "a Ukrainian from
southern New York with a
rebel name that loves to do
the Hawaiian hula," is Betty
Jean "Keoki" Brooks.
Thursday, mornings
Brooks can be found with
her students at the Suncoast
Auditorium at the Engle-
wood Community Hospital
doing hula dances.
"It's a nice, easy way to
get exercise," Brooks said.
"It's such a subtle way of
exercising, I wanted to show
it to everybody."
Brooks said that after
moving to Englewood not
long ago, she was looking
for hula-dancing classes- and
couldn't find one, so she
began her own. She said
she began the classes the
summer of 2005.
Brooks, who's been in-
volved with hula dancing
for 40 years, teaches various
types of southern Asian'
dances.
"It's all authentic," she
said. "They're not just from
Hawaii, they're from Tahiti,
New Zealand, Samoa."
The dances include poi
balls, corn husk balls on
ropes and feathered gourds
called uli' uli, which are items
that work the arms and upper
body.
Uwehe, special dance
steps, works out a person's
legs and is also beneficial for
the cardiovascular system.
Brooks said she has about
400 different dances that
incorporate about 20 distinct
steps.
Some of the dances are fast
and some are slow, but most
work the waist.
And a great deal of the
dances use hand movements
that tell a story, so after
repeated exposure to the


Englewood's Joan Mathews and her shadow dance to the "Hukilau" Thursday during a
Hawaiian Hula for Health class at Englewood Community Hospital's Suncoast Auditorium.


music, students learn an
ancient Asian art of sign lan-
guage.
"Hands tell the story, so the
hardest part is not knowing
the words of the song and the
tune," Brooks said.
Sign language
Brooks said she's heard
two versions concerning
where the sign language
dancing originated.
One legend states that
women were not permitted
to talk during a certain
men's ritual, and it became.
a, means of communicating
with the men.
Another lore is that
men used the tradition to
strengthen their wrists for
combat.
Joan Mathews, of Engle-
wood, said she took Brooks'
class to gain strength.
"When I saw this, I
thought it would be good
for exercise and bring me
back to the memories of my
youth," Mathews said.
Mathews said she used
to live in Hawaii for a short
time and has a lot of won-
derful memories from that
experience.
"I lived in Hawaii when I


was 18. Being 18, I was
impressionable," she said..
Anita Buckland, a hula
student, hasn't visited Ha-
waii, but she still has stories
brought to her from the
islands.
"I'm from England. My
grandfather was in the
Merchant, Navy," Buckland
said. "He would visit Hawaii
and he would bring back so
many wonderful stories."
And Sandy Jensen, an
Englewood resident and also
a student, has been influ-
enced by the south Asian
culture.
"W\Ve lied ini southeast
Asia. We lived in Singapore
and Malaysia," she said.


Jensen said each year she
and her husband would
travel back to the United
States, and on each trip
back they would stop at a dif-
ferent island in the south
Asian area.
But all three women ulti-
mately took Brooks' hula class
for exercise, they said.
The classes are sponsored
by Englewood Community
Hospital's H2U program, a
national membership that
offers healthy ways to stay
active, have fun arid meet
other adults with similar
interests.

on a ship with hundreds of
cabins, lots of strangers and
elaborate spreads of food.
The other puts you on a
vessel with only two or three
cabins and you have to
bring your own groceries.
The latter vessel comes with
a skipper who goes where
you want to go on the
placid Gulf Intracoastal Wa-
terway along famous barrier
islands like Sanibel, Captiva,
Caya Costa, Useppa and

picture begins with subtlety
and suspense, then builds to
an overblown crescendo.
Julia Jentsch is cunning
and fearless in the title role,
though, especially in the
tense scenes in which Sophie"
spars with Gestapo inter-
rogator Robert Mohr. Sophie
consistently reveals herself
to be a cool liar with nerves
of steel and a quick wit -
qualities we might not have
expected from her initially.
Director Marc Rothemund
depicts his heroine in the


beginning as a God-fearing,
seemingly innocent creature,
singing along with the radio
like a starry-eyed schoolgirl
and turning her face upward
to smile into the sun. But
later in the uninviting con-
fines of NMohr's office, she will
have an answer for every
question that's fired at her, a
readymade alibi for why she's
on campus with her brother,
fellow Nazi resister Hans,
when the leaflets eviscerating
Hitler are discovered, and
why she's carrying an empty


suitcase that happens to be
the exact same size as the
stacks of paper that were dis-
tributed.
After hours of hammering
her from every direction -
even -leveling acicuationsI
based on incriminating evi-
dence taken from her home
- Mohr finds himself in awe
of her. "You're so gifted," he
remarks. "Why don't you
think and feel like us?"
But Sophie has a question
of her own: "What if your
fuhrer is insane?"

lent drawings. Haneke is a master of
exposing the way political conflicts and
prejudices irreparably damage the psy-
che and the potential for human intimacy
and communication, and CACHE deftly
incorporates questions of personal
responsibility, justice and the racism of
France's past into an incredibly gripping

Good Night and
Good Luck
"Good Night, And Good Luck" takes
place during the early days of broadcast
journalism in 1950's America. It chroni-
cles the real-life conflict between televi-
sion newsman Edward R. Murrow and
Senator Joseph McCarthy and the House
Un-American Activities Committee. With a
desire to report the facts and enlighten
the public, Murrow, and his dedicated
staff headed by his producer Fred
Friendly and Joe Wershba in the CBS
newsroom defy corporate and sponsor-
ship pressures to examine the lies and
scaremongering tactics perpetrated by
McCarthy during his communist 'witch-
hunts.' A very public feud develops when
the Senator responds by accusing the
anchor of being a communist. In this cli-
mate of fear and reprisal, the CBS crew
carries on and their tenacity will prove
historic and monumental.

Joey, a low-level mobster, runs into
trouble when a gun he was supposed to
dispose of winds up in the wrong hands.
After a drug deal results in the deaths of
some dirty cops, Joey needs to get the


%f ARIES (March 21-April
da 1'9). Love is accep-
tance of yourself as
well as others. Receive a com-
pliment graciously. Practice
owning your brilliance and
abilities. This may be a chal-
lenge, but one you are up to.

TAURUS (April 20-May
S20). No one chooses
what they do not
want consciously, that is.
But, often it is in handling life's
unwanted curve balls that we
meet our strengths. So, take
today's adversity, and make
something of it.

SGEMINI'(May 21-June
21). Your talent rises
to the top. Be sure to
make the distinction between
you and what it is that you do.
Accept compliments, but know
that you are worthy whether or
not anyone else recognizes it.

..- CANCER (June 22-July
22). Strangely,. you
tolerate that person in.
your life who talks on and on
without a concern or question
about you. Probably, they
interest you, and that interest
overrules your heart's needs -
for now.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).
The road is long for
those who choose to
take the long road. And it's
short for those who recognize
the short cuts. All things being
equal, why not get there
faster? Ask everyone you know
if there might be another way.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22). Opportunities
come to those who
pursue them; don't wait for
something to happen. Passion
alone does not solve a prob-
lem; discuss it openly, and
you'll be offered brilliant
solutions.

*, LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
23). Taking care of
health helps you give
all you've got. There are more
possibilities for love when you
go out with a group of friends.
You know you deserve some-
one sweet, so stop going after
the bad boy/crazy girl.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-
Nov. 21). There is
much to like about
you. Practice being kinder
toward yourself. Good or bad,
your parents left you a legacy.
This is a perfect day to ponder
what exactly it is and use this
as a tool for self-discovery.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
r' 22-Dec. 21). You have
things of importance to say.'
But not everyone is ready to
hear you. Give when it's asked
of you, and if it's not asked,
hold back until people are
more receptive.

SCAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19). You show
r. the world who you
really are, and the world is
impressed. A centered attitude
is key to getting all you can
out of the day. Tonight,
family dynamics affect your
mood.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
.Feb. 18). Don't let
pride get in the way
of a good idea. It's all right to
give credit to someone, even if
it seems you did all the work.
When you share the spotlight,
the result is favorable.

.- PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20). You have a knack
t for bringing out -
the good in others. Give your-
self the same airtime, and
watch a burst of creativity
emerge. A romantic interest
develops seemingly out of
nowhere.

Cars in the park show displays some vintage muscle


Page 2 D/E/N/C/V


By RUSS MOORE
STAFF WRITER
The weather was a little
overcast and threatening
rain Sunday, but that didn't
intimidate members of the
Veteran Motor Car Club of
America. They showed up for
an informal car show, picnic,
and tire-kicking afternoon of
checking out one another's
cars and listening to the
music of the Jim Owen Trio.
Jack and Susan Sawyer
were on hand to show off
their 1969 GTO. The black
bad boy seemed uncomfort-
able sitting among a line of
vintage cars as it screamed
its, eagerness to devour miles
of blacktop and any unsus-
pecting road racer that was
foolish enough to challenge
this big block muscle car.
The GTO, or Gran Turismo
Omologato, was introduced
in 1964. There are many leg-
ends about how the car
snuck into the Pontiac line-
up. Some folks say it was
John Delorean and Jim
Wangers, who made the 389
V-8 an option on the sporty
Lemans midway through
the year.
We do know that John was
willing to take credit for the
launch when he said after
the introduction, "The GTO
represents Pontiac's answer
to increasing blandness
among the lower-priced
automotive products. It also
represents a cleverly con-
trived attempt to build
something with interesting
performance, despite the
infamous General Motors lid.
on such things."'
No matter who you believe
about Pontiac's GTO intro-,
duction, it was the best-sell-
ing nameplate of the muscle
era, and its straight-forward
design keeps it a favorite
among enthusiasts in South-
west Florida like Jack and
Susan.
"The car is 95 percent origi-
nal- not bad for a GTO," Jack
said. We did get some help
fiom Junior's up in Venice
who redid the interior."
"We also refurbished or
replaced some of the chrome
to, bring the car to its current
appearance," he added. "It
was delivered to a dealer in
Arlington, Massachusetts.
The dealer ordered it for his
wife. There was only one
other owner."
"We think that the car was
ordered to be a showroom
car, and so it has many extras
including a remote-control
trunk lid, power radio, and
three-speed automatic
transmission," Susan said.
The Sawyers' 1969 black
GTO came with a 400ci
engine fed by a four-barrel
carburetor, Jack told us.
"The car came from the
factory with power steering,
front disk brakes and tilt
steering wheel," Susan


added. "Our GTO was origi-
nally equipped with custom
15 inch wheels that were an
option that year."
It is fair to say that in 1963
not very many folks even
knew what Gran Turismo
Omologato meant, unless of
course they were Italian.
Automakers of the time were
obsessed with producing
smaller cars, and the
thought of dropping a 389ci
engine into one of them, well
.... it was just not part of the
plan. Today GTO are initials
revered by gearheads far and
wide, signifying a turning
point in Detroit's attitude
toward production automo-,
biles that had the muscle to
excite the car-buying public.
Jack and Susan Sawyer's GTO
is a fine example of the mus-
cle car era, and their devo-
tion to preserving it makes it
a rolling history lesson that
Detroit automakers may
want to revisit.
This week GM announced
that it will discontinue the
current GTO. The reasons
given, while a little murky,
seemed crystal clear to some
gearheads. The idea of buy-
ing a GTO made in Australia
with engines shipped from
Michigan stuck in it just has
not caught on. "Or maybe
angry retro-minded muscle
car fans thought a sacred
name. was being cynically
ripped off to stick on an
imported imposter," says
Jamie LaReau of Automotive
News.
On a gray' and cloudy Sun-
day, Gene and Sandy Brum-
back's bright \ellow Corvette
shined like a banana in a
black lunch box. The 1976
Corvette was a fine example
of a car that is driven and
enjoyed, yet preserved in
show quality.
"You know that 1974 was
the last year the Stingray was
made?" Gene asked me.

We went on to talk about
how the 1974 Stingray was
the first year that came with
a catalytic converter, a new
high-energy ignition and a
speedometer that included
kilometers-per-hour. The
most visible change was the
rear cap section, which was
of a two-piece design for
1974, but was changed to a
one-piece design with a pair
of fake bumperettes molded
in for 1975.
Gene was quick to point
out that he and his wife have
gotten a great deal of driving
satisfaction from the
Corvette. "We picked up the
car when it was four months
old and have enjoyed driving
it ever since," he said. "When
we bought the car it had
4,000 miles on it; she now
has 69,645 and everything
still works just fine!"
"The car was originally
ordered with a hardtop, but
as GM ran short on tops it


was delivered as a convert-
ible. We think that is lucky
for us," Sandy told us.
We asked Gene about the
Stingray's performance. "It
came with a four, speed cou-
pled to a L48, 350ci V8," he
smiled. "It came from the
factory blueprinted and
with a beefier cam." We lis-
tened to the engine lope as
we talked and it sounded
less stock than just a kicked
up cam.
Local car buff Don Royston
was recognized this week by
the national Veteran Motor
Car Club of America. Don is
the co-founder and presi-
dent of the Southwest Flori-
da chapter of the Veteran
Motor Car Club of America.
The award "honored him as
the member who did the
most for the club in 2005."
Don received a plaque, a
special desk clock and a gold
pen and pencil set at the
organization's business
meeting in Galveston, Texas.
Don's club has been.
involved in 78 events and
meetings during the past
year, more than any other
chapter in the country. We
caught up with Don last
night and asked him how he
became interested in vintage
cars. "I started with motor-
bikes and motor scooters
when I was a young boy of
,fourteen," Don said. "I have
been interested in anything
mechanical ever since."
. We know that Don is
always ready for a car show,
but we were surprised to
learn he has been an avid
collector all his life. "I've
owned over 70 convertibles
and 25 motorcycles in my
lifetime," he said. The-
motorcycles were all of
British or German origin."
"I never liked Harleys,"
Don told us. "I'm a smaller
guy and they were too heavy
for me."
When asked what he really
likes about vintage cars, he
smiled, pushed back his signa-
ture captain's cap, and seemed
to look back across the years at
the many experiences he has
had as a true auto enthusiast.
"I.suppose tha1 from the time I
was a young boy and had a
farm license that would allow
me to drive a truck to town,
cars and motorcycles have
meant one thing to me -
independence!",
Those who know Don cer-
tainly recognize him as a free
spirit and a true devotee of
vintage automotive collect-
ing. I'm sure that gearheads
across Southwest Florida will
join me with caps off to Don.
We want to see your ride and
share it with our readers. Send
photos and a few paragraphs
describing your ride to me at
