Norris stakes career on


commitment to succeed


A lot is riding on the March 14 school-tax
referendum including the superintendent's
future.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Not many school superin-
tendents are willing to pub-
lish a list of goals they plan to
attain and promise to reach
them or leave. But that's
exactly what Sarasota Coun-
ty School District .Superin-
tendent Gary Norris has
done.
Once the school board
approved his five-year long-
range plan NeXt Gen-
eration Learning Norris
issued a 17-point list of goals
and said he would resign if
he's unable to reach them.
Increase the graduation
rate (which, by definition,
means lowering the the
drop-out rate). Cut the num-
ber of truants in half. Reduce


the achievement gap be-
tween whites and minorities.
Meet 100 percent of lofty No
Child Left Behind targets ...
the list goes on.
Norris knows attaining the
goals he has set out for him-
self will be difficult, but that's
all right because he expects
success. He'll tell you he's
confident he has the profesL
sional staff and community
support to do it.
But first the district must
pass a hurdle not on the list
- the March 14 referendum
to continue the current 1-
mill education tax to supple-
ment its operating budget.
Norris is counting on a
"Yes" vote to finance the
NeXt Generation Learning
plan. And so are the school
board members who hired
him and back his plan, and
staff whose jobs depend on


Celebrating the arts in


In fact, his ability to aug-
ment and sell a referendum
was part of his interview
before he was hired for the
job.
Polling data provided by
Citizens for Better Schools
"look favorable" at this point,
Norris said, "but we don't
take that for granted."
As for those not in support
of the referendum, political
pundits say 20 percent to 30
percent will always vote "No"
on a referendum, Norris said.
"It's not a good use of
time" convincing those vot-
ers, he said. Instead, CBS is
targeting what he called a
"small group of undecideds"
to garner their support.
More on teacher pay
"NeXt Generation Learn-
ing is one of the most unique
plans in the country," Norris
said. "It's very progressive ...
a win-win for the public,
schools and teachers."

Roof issues keep




movie screens dark


Frank Theaters and
Waterford claim to be
surprised the county
wants an engineering
report building
officials say they've
asked for repeatedly.

BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR

You'll have to wait a little
longer to be able to see a
movie in Venice.
Concerns about the struc-
tural integrity of the roof over
the Frank Theaters Galleria
kept the building closed
Friday, the day of its sched-
uled grand opening.
"They voluntarily agreed
they wouldn't open today
because the place is simply
not ready," said Paul Radau-
skas, Sarasota County build-
ing official.
The theaters are a joint
project of Frank Theaters
and The Waterford Com-
panies.
Radauskas said the coun-
ty is awaiting a report on the
roof from the project engi-
neer. Review of that report by
...,a county engineer will deter-
mine whether the roof needs
any repairs, which in turn
will decide when the theaters
might be allowed to open.
"We really thought we'd
have that report by now," he
said.
Chris Dugger, vice presi-
dent of of business develop-

ment for Frank Theaters,
said, "It's a true shocker and
total. surprise to us, as we
were not made aware of this
until just before opening
time at 4:50 p.m. We are
unable to do anything about
it because we didn't put the
roof on."
"It's all in the hands of
Waterford Companies. We
are waiting for them to get an
assessment and to. deter-.
mine what the issue is," he
added.

away at the theater's scheduled grand opening because the
Sarasota County Building Department was waiting for an
engineering report on the building's roof in order to issue a
certificate of occupancy.


Tim Miller, vice president
ofTheWaterford Companies,
said he, too, was surprised to
learn late Friday, that the
county had not received a


report from Gary Scott, a

Proposed downtown height cap called'illegal'

IfVenice wants to cap how
tall Raymond Schiller can
make his island apartment
building, he expects to be
compensated.
City council is considering
a 35-foot height restriction
under the Neighborhood
Height Overlay District.-
"This proposed overlay is a
taking of property," Schiller, a
10-year owner of rental units
at 505 Barcelona Ave., told
council Tuesday. "When you
buy a property, you buy a set
of rights. ... If you do this,
owners should be compen-
sated. This (proposal) is illegal
and contrary to the vision of
John Nolen."
A stream of supporters and
opponents spoke Tuesday,

prompting city council to
avoid voting. Members in-
stead plan to have a joint
workshop with the Venice
Planning Commission in
April to discuss the height
restriction.
The planning commission
unanimQusly voted against
the proposal in January for a
number of reasons, though
most questioned what the
height cap should be and if
the selected area was appro-
priate for it.
The 35-foot height restric-
tion would include the area
south of Narvaezi Street,
north of Granada Avenue,
east of Park Boulevard and
west of Harbor Drive. City hall
and other government-zonled
land would be excluded.
"The planning commis-
sion was absolutely correct in


rejecting this," council mem-
ber John Simmonds said. "I'd
like to see this go back to staff
and the city attorney."
Council member John
Moore also questioned the
boundaries.
Ripe for redevelopment
The island's first height-
capped district, created last
June, is along Venice Avenue
west of Armada Road to
Venice Beach.
Tuesday's proposal' ex-
tends farther north than
Venice Avenue. Almost all the
affected properties are zoned
at densities greater than 13
units an acre and heights of
45 feet up to 95 feet with
special approval by council.
"This area is ripe for rede-
velopment," Planning and
Zoning Director Tom Slaught-
er said, in response to why the
boundaries were extended.
City Attorney Bob Ander-
son reassured council mem-
bers they have the right to


ATA GLANCE
* City council delayed voting Tuesday on a proposal to extend 35-
foot height caps closer to downtown Venice. In contrast to the
one passed, in June 2005, many of the property owners are oppos-
ing the latest along Venice Avenue near city hall.
* Nearly all of the existing buildings are two stories or less in this
area, which is almost entirely zoned for multi-family housing -
apartments and condominiums.
* The city considers the proposed district "ripe for redevelopment,"
meaning new structures could apply for zoned heights of 45 feet
and up to 95 feet with council approval.
* Both city council and the planning commission indicated some
type of height restriction is needed. However, no consensus was
reached.


restrict property owner rights.
However, the city must
have a clear, legally defensible
reason for imposing the
height caps in the proposed
area. The source for that is the
2005 ordinance that created
what's called the Neighbor-
hood Height Overlay District.
Under general intent, the
ordinance states the goal is to
preserve and protect "unique
and distinctive older, in-town


residential neighborhoods or
commercial districts that
contribute significantly to the
overall character and identity
of the community."
Council members must be
able to confidently identify
the "unique and distinctive"
characteristics being protect-
ed along Narvaezi Street.
"That's where you look to
find your answer," Anderson
said.

T11S WEEK IN VENICE HImSORY


Battle fought over Veterans Park


From the Feb. 13, 1975, Gondolier Sun


STAFF REPORT


More than two dozen area
war veterans turned out for
their first battle in many years
in support of residents inter-
ested in preserving a so-
called park in downtown
Venice.'
Members of the No-Vel
American Legionri and Tami-
ami Memorial Veterans of
Foreign Wars posts protested
the possibility that portions of
Block- 51 might one day be
used for parking.,
A memorial to war dead
now stands in the center of
the southern half of the block
which is commonly called
Veterans Memorial Park.
Another portion of the
block is used for public park-
ing. The city exempted the


block from its park ordinance
to allow future parking spaces
to be constructed if ever
deemed necessary.
The Parks Board, some
area residents and the veter-
ans asked that the park be
officially dedicated and in-
cluded in the parks ordi-
nance.
City council preferred to
keep the park.as open spaces,
leaving options open for
future parking if needed.
The Venice Planning Com-
mission recommended the
city include the park in the
ordinance. The VFW agreed,
asking that the park be made
a permanent memorial.
The East Gate Property
Owners Association also went
on record opposing "the con-
version of the park for a park-


ing lot." Caspersen suggested that

City: Fix the tower


or go to court


BY JJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANTEDITOR

The'homeowners associa-
tion at Eagle Point received a
nasty-gram from City Attor-
ney Bob Anderson this week-
Fix the water tower or else.
Eagle Point Club Home-
owners Association was offi-
cially put on notice it has 30
days to repair the historic
water tower or the city will
take the association to court.


SUN FILE PHOTO
This 2005 photo of the Eagle
Point Club water tower and
pump house shows the
vegetation that has taken
over the area and the 20-foot
palm tree growing up the
middle of the tower.,

Venice City Council recent-
ly denied the association's
request to demolish the
tower, and will enforce a 1991
annexation agreement re-
quiring the tower to be reha-
bilitated, preserved and
maintained.
Preservationists accused
fagle Point of purposely let-
ting the tower deteriorate.
i "We just want them to do
what they have contractually
obligated themselves to do,"
Anderson said in a phone
interview. "If you pay some-
one $20 to wash your car, you
want them to wash your car.
That was the deal."
Developers of Eagle Point,
next to Hatchett Creek Bridge
and Dona Bay, needed to
annex into Venice, 15 years
ago in order to obtain city
water, sewer and public safety
services.
Council members allowed


the annexation, but required
several landmarks on the
National Register of Historical
Places be preserved. The de-
veloper and homeowners as-
sociation followed through
on every requirement, except
for the water tower and its
pump house.
The 1991 agreement was
amended in 1997, and among
the changes, the water tower
and pump house were placed
outside the historic preserva-
tion boundary. Instead, they
were made part of a residen-
tial lot with an easement pro-
tecting them from demolition
and limiting the buildable
area for any new homes.
The request to demolish
came in late last summer.
According to a check of the
Sarasota County Property
Appraiser's Office, the owners
are Wayne A. and Karen
Roberts of Venice, who pur-
chased the site Aug. 10, 2005,
for $337,500.
Eagle Point Club was built
in 1916 and advertised as an
outdoorsman's oasis next to
Roberts Bay. It started draw-
ing Northerners to the area
years before the city was cre-
ated in 1927. The original
Tamiami Trail then only a
two-lane dirt road ran right
through the camp.
Private developers shut
down the 23-acre resort in
1990. and have been building
high-priced homes ever
since.
Following a tour of the site
in 2005, Venice Archives Di-
rector Dorothy Korwek was
left with serious doubts as to
whether anyone has been
maintaining the water tower
and pump house. Vegetation
has taken over the area and a.
20-foot palm tree is growing
up the middle of the tower.
None of the vegetation was
present in photos taken 15j
years ago.
Anderson's letter states the
homeowners association has
"breached the Oct. 24, 1991,
pre-annexation agreement by
failing to rehabilitate the
water tower and pump house
and by allowing these struc-
tures to fall into a state of dis-
repair and neglect."
Anderson said the city will
take Eagle Point to circuit
court if it fails to restore the
water tower.

Venice firefighters put out a fire in a 12-14 foot panel truck Saturday. The truck was parked in the Venice Public Library
auxiliary parking lot on Nokomis Avenue at the time of the fire. City officials say the fire started in a generator in the back
of the panel truck. There were no injuries.

Correction


A story in the Gondolier
Sun about pedestrian safety
in Osprey incorrectly report-
ed that the traffic signal at
Bay street has been synchro-
nized with the signal at Wal-
Mart; they are not synchro-
nized, though they will be in
the future. County Public
Works Engineer Jeff Roberts
did not say a flashing pedes-
trian sensor operates on the
basis of walking 64 feet in 20


seconds, but did say the sen-
sor operates on the basis of
someone walking 3.2 feet
per second, and that the per-
iod allowed to cross would
be 20 seconds; that the state
standard is for a faster gait;
and that county-maintained
pedestrian sensors differ,
often going beyond what
federal guidelines suggest to
account for Sarasota
County's older population.


There's a revolution underway that's
changing the world of diagnos-
tic medicine and putting the term
"medical testing" in a whole new light.
The good news? It's already arrived
in Venice, at Venice Regional Medical
Center's HealthPark.

The high-speed, 64 "slice" CT scanner is
an exciting new technological advance
that provides remarkably clear, real-
time dynamic images of organs like the
heart, brain and lungs. Physicians can
actually evaluate plaque in your arter-
ies, spot blood clots before they cause
strokes, or observe tumors as they
respond to treatment.

You Won't Feel a Thing
With the help of images that represent
a quantum leap in clarity, physicians
can diagnose health problems earlier
and more accurately-which means
treatment can begin sooner if there is
a problem. As if that were not enough,
the scans are non-invasive, painless,
and take just seconds to perform. So
now, the word "testing" doesn't have
to make you cringe. And you can look
at the process of evaluating your health
from an entirely new perspective.

East Venice Avenue Plan



hearing delayed


Singing their praises


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER '

Some people want to live
out in the country, away from
development, while others
want to sell out to developers
and let them build whatever
they want.
These realities of growth in
Florida butted heads Thurs-
day night. in a Sarasota
County Planning Commis-
sion meeting when the board
heard from the public about
preliminary East Venice Ave-
nue Plan.
Some people said they love
the rural life and freedom it
offers and want the new plan
to preserve their way of life.
Others, bowing to the real-
ity of growth, are wary of any
construction limitations that
could hinder their ability to
sell their property for top dol-
lar. That has become the re-
tirement plan for some.
"We have heard from quite
a spectrum of people," said
board chair Roland Piccone.
"This presents a real chal-
lenge."
Tate Taylor, a principal
planner for the county, said
staff needs guidance on
where to go with the plan.
"This is a plan in princi-
ple," Taylor said. "We just
want to know if you like it."
The smell of privacy
The idea of creating a plan
came about when residents
and officials realized there
was a wave of development
with' little organization.
Anne Merrill of AMDS Inc.
and the county held three
public workshops to get a
better feel for what was need-
ed to have "smart growth" in
the neighborhood.
The boundaries of the
planning area are Jacaranda
Boulevard to the west, North
River Road to the east,
Interstate 75 to the north, and
one block south of East
Venice Avenue to the south.
County commissioners


imposed a temporary mora-
torium on zoning changes in
the planning area pending
completion of the plan.
On Thursday, 16 residents
and developers chimed in
about the plan.
Max Clark lives on Green
Cove Road and said he
bought his property 15 years
ago to get out in the country.,
"Our choices are being
taken away from us," Clark
said. "I know development is
going to happen.... I just don't.
want to drive into my neigh-
borhood with a bunch of
homes."
He said he likes being able
to shoot his shotgun or allow
his children to ride all-terrain
vehicles.
"I hope I don't have to
leave, like some of these other
people," Clark continued.
"My property is zoned for
agricultural, so I might just
put in a chicken farm. Maybe
the smell will prevent anyone
from building near me."
Ready to move
Mark Graham has lived on
8 acres on Lee Road for four
years.
"The day we moved in, we
saw a rezoning sign," Graham
said.
While he has horses and
chickens on his property, he
admits the area is a retire-


ment community. He said he
is willing to sell, but fears any
plan may limit the value of his
property.
"This is not a rural setting
anymore," Graham said.
"Why can't we get high value
for our property? There are 60
acres among neighbors ready
and willing to sell. I am ready
to move out of the state
because of what is. happen-
ing."
The plan would create
"blocks of development that
would force developers to
have interconnecting roads
to keep traffic off East Venice
Avenue.
Planning commissioners
questioned this idea, because
there are few services within
the community now to keep
them from going elsewhere
for basic necessities.
Hashing it out
Representatives from J&J
Homes, which has a subdivi-
sion in the northwest comer
of the plan area and has
intentions to build an addi-
tional 750 homes along East
Venice Avenue, objected to
some of the limitations with-
in the proposed plan.
Commissioners agreed
that some of the language
was too restricting. With
many unanswered questions,
the board decided to extend

School expenses increased more than revenue in 2005


BY RACHEL BROWN HACKNEY
PELICAN PRESS


Although the Sarasota
County School District's ac-
counting procedures them-
selves won high marks after
the most recent audit, the
actual numbers told a story of
expenses growing faster than"
revenue in the 2005 fiscal
year.
The Sarasota County
Board of Education members
voted 5-0 at their Feb. 21 reg-
ular meeting to accept the
audit after a presentation by
Troy Y Manning, a certified
public accountant with the St.
Petersburg firm of Cherry,
Bekaert and Holland LLP,
which undertook the finan-
cial review.
The school district's 138-
page Comprehensive Annual
Financial Report for fiscal
2005, which may be found on
the district's Web site (saraso-
ta.kl2.fl.us), shows that total
assets increased by 9 percent,
or $41.4 million, in the 2005


fiscal year, which ended June
30, 2005.
However, total expenses
rose by 12 percent, including
an extra $25.4 million in costs
associated with classroom
instruction.
The document prepared
by Bruce Monson, executive
director of the district's finan-
cial services, and his staff,
said the rise in instructional
costs "is directly attributed to
increases in payroll costs and
employee benefits."
During the 2005 fiscal year,
the district added 266 hew
teachers 121 of them to
comply with the state of
Florida's class-size amend-
ment. Additionally, the dis-
trict granted a 4.25 percent
cost-of-living increase to all
personnel, the report says.
Benefit costs
Among the benefit expens-
es, the costs of both the dis-
trict's health insurance plans
- one of which is for HMO
coverage rose 6.26 percent


as of Jan. 1, 2005, after a 2.32
percent increase a year earli-
er, Monson said in a tele-
phone interview.
The most recent signifi-
cant jump in health benefits
expenses, Monson said, came
in 2003, when the district was
hit with a 24.52-percent hike
in one plan; its HMO plan ex-
penses climbed only 5.23 per-
cent that year.
The level of contributions
to the Florida Retirement Sys-
tem for all regular employees
did not change from the 2004
fiscal year to the 2005 fiscal
year, remaining at 7.39 per-
cent of gross salaries, Monson
said.
As of October, when
Florida districts submitted to
the state their reports on the
number of teachers employ-
ed, Monson said, the Sarasota
district had 2,741 instructors
in classrooms, not counting
guidance counselors and
other personnel whose sal-
aries are paid according to the
schedule set for teachers.


Information provided on the
district's Web site says the
average teacher salary in
Sarasota County is $44,860.
The revenue rise in fiscal
2005 was attributed to larger
property tax valuations and
increasing state operating
revenues provided to the dis-
trict, the financial report
shows.
Property tax revenue for
the schools rose from $289.54
million in fiscal 2004 to $311.7
million in fiscal 2005, the
report says. For the 2005 fiscal
year, the special 1-mill tax
approved by Sarasota County
voters in 2002 brought in
$38.8 million, according to
the report.
A referendum is set for
March 14 on the question of
extending that tax for another
four years.
With the state of Florida
having provided funds to
reduce class sizes, Monson
pointed out, the Sarasota dis-
trict has been able to use the
special millage funds to raise


teacher salaries and replace
some of the guidance coun-
selors who had to be let go
during a funding crunch prior
to 2002.
As promised
What worries Monson
most in regard to the district's
finances for the current fiscal
year is higher bills associated
with Florida's recent hurri-
canes. The electric bill is
expected to be up 41 percent,
he said, while property insur-
ance costs are 30 percent
higher.
During her remarks at the
board meeting, Manning, the
outside accountant, com-
mended the district's Finan-
cial Services Department,
saying the "unqualified opin-
ion" given the audit report by
Cherry, Bekaert and Holland
is "the highest degree of
assurance an audit firm" can
offer a school system.
She also pointed out that
the district last year had won
top awards for its financial


reporting program from the
Government Finance Officers
Association and the Associa-
tion of School Board Officials.
"These nationally recog-
nized awards represent a sig-
nificant accomplishment and
demonstrate school districts'
commitment to high stan-
dards in financial reporting,"
she said.
"I really have no doubt
that, for the second year, you
are going to get these
awards," Manning told the
school board.
Following her presenta-
tion, Superintendent Gary
Norris said he had been asked
about having the audit come
out prior to the March 14 ref-
erendum on the extension of
the 1-mill tax.
There was nothing he en-
joyed more, he said, than
telling people "their dollars
are fairly and accurately re-
ported and audited.... We are
spending the referendum
money exactly as we prom-
ised."


County schools could keep troubled youth out


A new board policy under consideration will
require incoming students to report any previous
expulsions, arrests or juvenile justice actions
before they're allowed to enroll in a Sarasota
County public school.

BY GREG GILES drug use, for example, often
STAFF WRITER move to neighboring school
districts or to another state
It's long been a policy of after they've been expelled or
schools, especially in the encouraged to leave. With-
early grades, to sweep under holding certain information
the rug certain unsavory on school records, even if it
actions by some of their stu- led to police charges, was
dents. Even if they weren't designed to give youth a sec-
expelled, kids who move on ond chance without past
to another school because of indiscretions following them
inappropriate sexual activity, through those early impres-
repeated fighting, or illicit sionable years.


But all that could change
under a new policy up for
consideration.
On Tuesday the Sarasota
County. School Board is ex-
pected to advertise changes
to policy 5.10, "Requirements
for original entry." Proposed
language states, "Any student
who initially enrolls in the
district shall be required to
report any previous school
expulsions, arrests resulting
in a charge, and juvenile jus-
tice actions the student has
had."
It's not clear from the draft
policy whether parents or
guardians will be required to
come forth with the same
information.


The proposed policy gives
the district final say in whe-
ther to allow a student with
previous run-ins with the law
entry into Sarasota County
public schools. School offi-
cials may waive the previous
expulsion and allow an in-
coming student to enroll, or it
may honor the final order of
expulsion or dismissal of a
student if the act would
have been grounds for expul-
sions according to Sarasota
County's own Code of Stu-
dent Conduct, effectively
keep those students from
ever enrolling in Sarasota
County schools.
Landings officials say the
district already follows this


practice when the informa-
tion is volunteered by an
incoming student or his or
her parent or guardian, or
when it's discovered during
registration.
Every two weeks, when
the Sarasota County School
Board meets, it considers the
fate of students who are rec-
ommended for expulsion
or deferred expulsion. The
board is considering three
such cases at Tuesday's meet-
ing at The Landings. Options
for expelled students include
enrolling in a private school,
home school, move to anoth-
er school district or out of
state, or drop out.

The following is a recap of
actions at Tuesday's city
council meeting that have not
already been reported:
Villa Paradiso
Council approved a Plan-
ned Unit Development re-
zoning request from Standard
Pacific Homes (formerly
Westfield Homes) for 155
acres bordered by Laurel
Road to the north and Border
Road to the south.
The first reading only pass-
ed 5-2 after council members
John Moore and Vickid Taylor
questioned development in
North Venice. Nloore again
voted against Villa Paradiso,


while Taylor's vote was a
change of position.
Initial concept plans show
143 single-family homes
starting at $400,000 each; 130
townhouse-style villas start-
ing in the mid-$300,000s; and
223 condominium units
starting in the mid-$300,000s.
Out of the 155 acres, 89 of
them would bededicated to
open space.
The development also will
build a new north-south con-
nector road for Laurel and
Border roads, contribute to
buying a new ladder truck for
the Venice, Fire Departmnent
and donate It'.1a acres to the
city for a park.


Naples recognition
Naples City Manager
Robert Lee thanked the city
and presented certificates to
the five employees who

the U.S. 41 Business corridor
on the island to the Venetian
Urban Design Overlay District
This set of design, appearance
and use standards, was
approved last year, but city staff
is only now applying it.
Some have criticized the
city for moving too slowly,


thus allowing the bright red
paint job and checkered-flag
parking lot of the new Pit Stop

dards would not have allowed
the color scheme.

County's Forestry Division
launches Web site about trees
Sarasota County's Forestry Division has launched a new urban
forestry Web site as a public resource 'about trees, with information
specifically targeted to homeowners, builders and developers, students
and teachers, and tree-care workers.
The site may be accessed directly at www.scgov.net/forestry, or by
visiting the county's Web site at www.scgov.net. Go to the "Find Informa-
tion" column on the right, click on "Environmental Issues" and then
"Forestry/Trees."
The Forestry Division developed the site as part of a community
outreach initiative to help residents and visitors understand the unique
qualities and distinctions of Sarasota County's urban forest, and learn
about the county's urban forestry programs. The site profiles more than
60 native and localized trees and 15 palm species for their characteris-
tics, best use, special needs and notable features. The site also
illustrates and explains the diverse benefits a healthy urban forest can
provide, plus provides tips on new tree placement and planting, proper
pruning, and care of mature trees.
For more information about the Web site or urban forestry programs,.
contact the Sarasota County Call Center at (941) 861-5000 and ask for
the Forestry Division.
Deadline close for Conserva-
tion Award applications
There's still time to nominate candidates for the 14th Annual Sarasota
County Conservation Awards. The awards honor individuals, groups
and businesses that have taken leadership roles in promoting conser-
vation of natural resources and environmental awareness through
education.
Over the past 13 years, the Conservation Awards have honored nearly
100 individuals or groups. Last year's winners included Al Bavry of
Kimal Lumber (Resource Conservation), Glen and Mary Compton
(Environmental Education), and Tom Lehnis and David Oman (Com-
munity Initiative). Jono Miller was honored, for Lifetime Achievement.
New this year, a Youth Environmental Leadership Award will be given

CITY NOTES


Planning commission
The Venice Planning Com-
mission will consider an an-
nexation and a site plan and
receive an update on North
Venice growth when mem-
bers convene at 1:30 p.m.
Tuesday.
Among the agenda items
are:
Blackburn Road annexa-
tion The owners of a 20-
acre property on Blackburn
and Laurel roads, near the
Myakka River, have! peti-
tioned for annexation,' Own-
ed by Patricia Tyler, Howard
Seider Jr. and William Seider,
the land includes one single-
family home and would be a
residential development.
North Venice Don
Caillouette, comprehensive
planner, will lead presenta-
tion detailing development of
North Venice. This presenta-
tion will be similar to the one
given to city council Feb. 28.
Planning commission
!


meetings are held in council
chambers of City Hall.
Code board actions
These building code viola-
tion cases were heard Thurs-
day by the Municipal Code
Enforcement Board:
Bay Indies the board
denied a code inspector's'
request to rescind the $350
fine issued for 981 E. Eleuthra
Ave. Members said officials
with Bay Indies Mobile Home
Park must ask for it them-
selves at next month's meet-
ing. The park was cited for
installing 10 mobile homes
without .a construction per-
mit, but was able to correct all
but the one without a fine
being imposed.
Downtown apartment-
"What are you going to bring
to us in 30 days, 60 days, for
that fuzzy feeling we won't be
here a year from now," code
board member Joe Dalton
said to the attorney for Joan


Gearhart, 329 W. Miami Ave.
For more than two years, reno-
vations to Gearhart's down-
town apartment building have
triggered numerous code vio-
lations for construction with-
out a permit. Gearhart has
already paid $27,000 worth of
fines, and claims any more
fines will prevent the job from
ever getting done. Code board
members said they're tired of
hearing promises, and without
signed documents between
Gearhart and her architect and
contractor, eviction proceed-
ings and fines'will resume.
CVS sign Code inspec-
tors will open a new case
against CVS Pharmacy, 100
U.S. 41 Bypass. Venice ruled in
January the store had corrected
sign violations, but during final
inspections, it was revealed the
contractor listed on the per-
mits did not do the job. CVS
faces more fines if it cannot
prove a licensed contractor
installed the sign.


NORRIS fomn Page 1 A
Increasing teacher salaries
is key to the plan. Norris said
Sarasota County voted for
that when they passed the
2002 referendum, and be-
lieves voters are just as com-
mitted today to strengthening
educator salaries to attract
the best and brightest quali-
fied candidates into Sarasota
County classrooms.
Norris' plan raises educa-
tor pay in two ways: In addi-
tion to roughly $5,000 per
teacher to work an extra 30
minutes each school day,
teachers are earning incentive
pay for taking additional
training courses by the dis-
trict.
4A new Florida Department
of Education eComp program
unveiled last month would
offer another 5-percent bon-
us to top teachers based on
how well their students per-
form.
Norris welcomes the state
plan and says he will not scale
back district bonus pay in lieu
of state bonuses.
"The district plan is avail-
able to any teacher. The state
plan will only impact the top
10 percent of teachers," Nor-
ris said.
He's optimistic about the
state merit pay plan. In the
past, Norris said, merit pay
often boiled down to person-
alities. If the school principal
didn't like you, you could
pretty much count on not get-
ting merit pay.
The state plan calls for a
team-approval process based
on observations, class atten-
dance, student achievement
and other observable skills,
like whether teachers use co-
operative learning or are inte-
grating technology into their
teaching.
"The point is to become
better at your craft," Norris
said.
Voters will decide March 14
whether to continue the cur-
rent 1-mill education tax
another four years, raising


COMMITMENT TO THE PUBLIC
Superintendent Gary Norris has publicized the following goals to
be achieved by the end of the 2009-2010 school year:
Students
- The total graduation rate will increase from last year's 78 percent
to 86 percent.
- The number of habitual truants will be cut in half.
Closing the achievement gap
- Twenty-five percent more minority students will graduate from
high school.
* The number of minority students in honors and Advanced
Placement classes will increase by 50 percent.
School reforms
* One hundred percent of our regular schools will meet the federal
No Child Left Behind Act's Annual Yearly Progress as compared
with 31 percent in the 2003-04 school year.
* One hundred percent of our high school students will be
enrolled in small learning communities In which students will
have rigorous and relevant experiences around their career inter-
est.
- One hundred percent of ninth-grade students will develop an
education plan that includes a career pathway they plan to follow
from high school through post-secondary education.
* High school career and technical offerings will double at all high
schools, and we will open a career technical high school with two
campuses.
* A special certificate will be established for students who success-
fully complete a technical training program.
* The International Baccalaureate program will be expanded to an
elementary school (K-five) and a middle school (grades six-eight)
and be offered as a continuing program from elementary through
middle and high school levels.
Teachers
* The average teacher salary will increase to at or near the top
quartile (75 percent) in the nation in order to attract and retain the
highest quality staff in this time of teacher shortages. We are cur-
rently at or near the national average.
* Thirty minutes will be added to the contract day for enhanced
instruction and planning.
* By 2012, 100 percent of our teachers will be trained and qualified
as a NeXt Generation teacher.
Administration/parents
- One hundred percent of our schools will add an online portion to
their school's Web site to enable parents to keep better informed
about their children's education. Included will be up-to-date
attendance, discipline and student achievement information for
each child as well as his or her progress on daily assignments.
- One hundred percent of the schools and departments will mea-
sure the satisfaction of their service to customers. Customer ser-
vice marks will improve at least 25 percent from 2005-2006 bench-
mark levels.
- The district will continue to receive exemplary financial reports
from outside auditing companies, national rating firms and our
watchdog financial advisory committee, which consists of area
business leaders.

that the roof of the building

"Those guys knew and they

Deflection
According to Radauskas,
Sthe roof is 20-25 years old. As
: part of the theater renova-
tions, new air conditioning
units have been installed on
it. The county needs proof the
* underlying structure can han-
dle the extra weight.
' "We had told them repeat-
edly from the beginning of the
project it's an old roof ... and
;we're concerned the structur-
al integrity of parts of it have
been called into question," he
said.
Until that issue is resolved,
he said, the building has to
remain closed in the interest
of public safety.
There are three possible
outcomes of the county engi-
neer's review of the roof
report, Radauskas said. If no
repairs are ,needed, the the-
aters could open almost
immediately, as any remain-
ing fixes aren't serious enough
to keep the doors closed.
At the other extreme, the
roof could require extensive
repairs including the man-

theaters might be allowed to
open if it's determined the
roof over them'is sound even
though repairs are needed in
other areas.
Radauskas said he would-
n't be surprised to find out
that stiffeners would need to
be added to the roof joists.
"We've had some deflec-
tion in the roof," he said.
Radauskas said he was
aware there had been an invi-
tation-only reception and
screening at the theaters
Thursday evening. The coun-
ty decided to allow that event
to go forward, he said,
because it was a "controlled

OUR VIEW




If bills pass, you can take it with you


For thousands of homeowners across
Florida who may be thinking about sell-
ing their home and buying another -
perhaps bigger or better the Florida Leg-
islature wants to help.
In this case, the Florida Save Our Homes
tax break is the issue in question.
What a great tax advantage SOH has been
for countless thousands of Florida home-
owners for more than a decade. SOH pro-.
vides for a maximum annual assessment
hike of 3 percent on homestead property, or
the rise in the Consumer Price Index,
whichever is lower. That has enabled millions
of Floridians to escape soaring tax bills and
stay in their homes while property prices
around them escalate out of sight.
*The only catch is, if you buy another home
you start over with a tax assessment based on


your new home's full purchase price. The tax
difference is often so large that homeowners
simply decide not to buy that next home, or
they move out of the state.
There are numerous proposals being con-
sidered for placement on the November bal-
lot that would offer voters the opportunity of
SOH portability.
We supported the original concept of limit-
ing how much taxes can increase on home-
steaded property. However, we have concerns
about this newest proposal to let you.take the
SOH tax break with you to your next home.
If homeowners decide to sell and move to
a more expensive home, we see no reason
why they should be protected. It is their
choice to move, their decision to buy a more
expensive home, and they should be pre-
pared to pay the extra tax, if 'that is their


desire.
However, we believe the door should be
left open for certain circumstances involving
a catastrophic event. In the case of a hurri-
cane that destroys a person's home, for exam-
ple, that person should not be penalized for
having to buy a new home and should be
able to transfer the homestead exemption
and SOH status to a new residence.
Another problem we have with the current
proposals is that we do not agree that a refer-
endum is the proper vehicle to make this a
law. It is a rare occasion that we favor amend-
ing the Florida constitution, which is how ref-
erendums become law.
If state lawmakers are fond of this idea,
they should should take on the challenge of
crafting the bill and let the chips fall where
they may.


Many of the 67 county tax appraisers in
Florida will have their eyes on this possible
ballot item. They will have to administer any
tax break that becomes law.
Those tax breaks will affect local budgets
and force municipal and county govern-
ments to adjust their spending plans. The
amendment as it exists now has already had
that effect, creating wide tax disparities
between similar homes arid shifting more of
the property tax burden to commercial prop-
erties and those not protected by homestead.
It just does not make good economic
sense for the state to travel this route now.
If legislators pursue the effort, we recom-
mend they allow property owners to allow
transfer of SOH rights only im the event of a
catastrophe. That is a logical use of any
portability for tax breaks.


Education myths


to be considered.


A couple of weeks ago a let-
.ter 4to- the editor-said.that
again and again &tdOesshlibw
that more money results in
educational improvement.
In the early 1970s the per-
pupil cost to educate a child
was $4,479, while in 2001-
2002 the cost had become
$8,745. (These figures are
adjusted in 2001-2002 dol-
lars.) So the cost of educating
a child had almost doubled in
30 years. (I know some of that
is due to issues such as safety
that schools must deal with
that were not so much a con-
cern back then.)
According to the National
Assessment of Educational
Progress, the reading scores
in 1971 were 285 While 30
years later they were 288, and
math scores had inched up 4
points from 304 to 308.
Another measure was
graduation rates. The rate in
1971-1972 was 75.6 national-
ly, while in 2000 it was down
to 70.3 percent. It looks like it
has since gone up a point or
two.
So, over the years throwing
money at education has not
brought positive results.
Erik Hanushek of Stanford
University has studied this
trend, and certainly one
could say his work proves
what the letter writer said,
that studies showed a correla-
tion.
But in 163 studies on the
subject, he could only find 27
that showed a correlation
while the other 140 showed
there was no correlation. That
is a large body of research, it
would seem.
This partly relates to the
other myth, that school
teachers are underpaid.
National statistics for
teachers show they make
about $45,000, about where
our average is. It is important
when considering this that we
remember that a teacher
works roughly nine months a
year. That means an average
teacher is making, on an
annualized basis, .more than
$60,000 a year.
U.S. Department of Labor
statistics show that teachers
make about $31 an hour
(based on work day of 7.3
hour; ours is slightly less than
that). In comparison to other
skilled positions they fare
pretty well. Firefighters,


policemen, editors, nurses
and civil engineers all make
less.
Of course, we all know
many teachers work more
hours; the national average
on that is just more than 43
hours. While that makes
teacher pay more compara-
ble, remember that teachers
have better benefits than
almost all of the other profes-
sions and enjoy job security
after a few years.
My brother, Richard, a pro-
fessor of economics at Ohio
University, has also written 6n
te, subject that teachers
make more than architects,
biologists, statisticians, librar-
ians and physical therapists.
Our teachers, with their
new 7-percent increase, are
paid at the top in the state.
Should the referendum pass,
they would stand to get
another 10-percent increase if
they meet the criteria to be a.
top teacher.
It is budgeted.that 80 per-
cent of our teachers within
four years would attain this,
which represents $8 million a
year. This is before legislation
that is being considered for
this term to give 5 percent to
teachers who are at the top of
their profession, a merit pay
increase,.
One might look at what has
been the success of the $98
million that we used in the
first three years of the current
extra mill.
Lots of programs were
restored, especially in areas
like drop-out prevention and
second-chance schooling.
Summer school was broad-
ened and a lot of teachers'-
maybe a hundred were
added to bring reading up.
Guidance counselor ranks
have been added to measur-
ably and a lot of other support
staff both in the schools and
at the Landings has been
added.
So, how has that affected
things?
For one, graduation rates
are up a few percentage
points and drop-outs are
down both very good signs.
Some of that comes from
being a little more creative on
how we handle some gradua-
tions, but however it is done is
for the better.
However, on the education
side the results are not so
encouraging. FCAT results
show that elementary school
scores have stayed about the
same while the middle and
high school ones have gone
down, not up.
One answer for that has
been that you really need to
go a whole child cycle, 13
years, or well more than a bil-
lion dollars, to see the
improvement. That is a scary
gamble, considering the data

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


The answers haven't changed in 150 years


Editor:
Horace Mann, who sought reform for public schools in the
1830s to 1860, has been called the "father of the American pub-
lic school." As someone who actively and enthusiastically pur-
sued free and better education, he faced almost every educa-
tional question-asked:
1. Why should we pay taxes for the schooling of someone
else's child? His answer: "The best way to make democracy
work is to educate all the children. If we do not prepare chil-
dren to become good citizens, if we do not enrich their minds
with knowledge, then our republic must go down to destruc-
tion, as others have gone before it."
2. What shall we teach in the schools? "We must teach good
citizenship; instruction in the three "R"s is not enough.
Children must know something about nature, about practical
things and about the society in which they live."
3. What teaching methods shall we use? "Memorization
makes learning dull and stops creative thinking. We must teach
children to think for themselves. Teachers should make learn-
ing interesting by referring to familiar experiences and by
examining real objects."
4. Who should teach? "Only persons with proper training."
Why did I research and write this? Because we all need to
remember that education and its benefits keep us from living
in a state of anarchy.
Why should we vote to continue providing a good education
for the students of Sarasota County? To show our youth that we
value their future.
Pay it forward. Vote yes on March 14.

Port deal in our
best interests
Editor:
I find it very disturbing to
read a letter speaking out
against Mr. Chertoff's deci-
sion to allow the United Arab
Emirates to take over opera-
tions of six U.S. ports as
allowing the "fox in the hen-
house."
Gen. Tommy Franks has
stated the United Arab Em-
irates was among the first to
support the United States in
Desert Storm while our Euro-
pean friends did not. The port
of Dubai in the United Arab
Emirates is strategically im-
portant in that it is the biggest
U.S. naval repair base outside
of the United States; allows


U.S. forces to use a major air
base; and passes on intelli-
gence in the war on terrorism.
The British firm that
agreed to sell Peninsular &
Oriental Steam Navigation,
which operates these six
ports, is selling only the oper-
ation of these ports and there
will be no change in person-
nel, including the U.S. Coast
Guard.
U.S. stock companies and
mutual funds now have 20
percent of their portfolios in
non-U.S. securities. This is
not a one-way street; it's a
global world of business.
Accusation without foun-
dation is just plain stupid. If
we continue down this dan-
gerous path, the outcome
could cause the UAE to


demand that we vacate our
U.S. naval facility and U.S.
airbase and lose a valuable
source of intelligence. This
would be a disaster to our war
effort and a great danger and
threat to our support for our
troop and sailors.
If this deal is blocked by
the beltway politicians in
Congress, Democrat or Re-
publican, no one deserves a
night's sleep.

Spend my taxes wisely
Editor:
It seems every time I read
the paper, I see where the
county has spent more
money purchasing property.
Recently, Sarasota County
commissioners approved
$2.95 million to formally pur-
chase the Snook Haven prop-
erty and for the operations
and maintenance of the facil-
ity for the "remainder of the
year." Not long ago I saw they
purchased land at River Road
and Venice Avenue.
Of course, this money
comes from the taxpayers,
right? It appears taxes keep
going up so the county can
acquire more land.
I feel this money could be
put to much better use for
schools, for instance. How
many people are going to
benefit from the purchase of
Snook Haven?
After this year, taxpayers
will continue to pay for oper-
ations and maintenance of
Snook Haven. I for one, am'
not happy with the way tax
money is spent.
I'm in an area where they
plan to put in water lines. I
received notification that the
original price we were quoted
a year ago has doubled. If
they do not get the water lines


in this year, I suppose th6 cost
doubles again.
Where is this going tc end
for the taxpayers?

Nokomis

EDITOR'S NOTE: When thepur-
chase is of environmentally sersi-
tive land, the money comes front
bonds approved by county voters,
and sometimes from other sources
besides county taxpayers.
Got any more
of those signs?
Editor:
Can you advise me where
we may purchase a few of the
signs you displayed in your
paper?
Indeed, it's about time that
the taxpayers halt all this run-
away spending. The school
system is clearly out of touch
and out of control. Let's start
an effort to stop it now.
The citizens of Sarasota
County must get a grip on all
this spending.
Keep up the good work.

More money is
not the answer
Editor:
A question the Sarasota
school system does not want
to answer directly is, "Did the
prior four-year tax, including
the unexpected surplus, help
our students' test scores?"
This question is unpopular
because the answer is, "Not in
our middle schools or high
schools."
Compared to pre-referen-
dum school year 2001-2002,
eighth-grade FCAT reading
scores are trending down-

Our waterlines? Mission impossible


No thought. Let's use some common sense. If the county
will subsidize water for Bay Point Drive and Shore Road in
Nokomis, has anyone thought about Mission Valley? In the dry
season there is often no water at all in the wells, all dry. And
water is trucked in for some. Now, there are water lines along
Mission Valley Boulevard on the west side for new subdivisions
- no thought for the many residents on the east side. This
would not be a huge cost and so meaningful for these resi-
dents. Check the tax rolls and I'm sure you'll find we are part of
the county.


Not their fault. This is in
response to someone who
called in and said children
were too spoiled because they
were driven to school by their
parents and that was.creating
the traffic problem. How
about looking at the people
who designed the parking lot
and the whole school set-up
in regard to the traffic prob-
lem?
And also, what about par-
ents who might work late, and
a way of spending time with
their children or doing some-
thing special is by driving
them to school every day? So
in terms of the problem I
don't feel it's the spoiled chil-
dren's fault, I think it's the car-
ing parents who want to take
their children to school,
spend time with them and
make sure they get there safe-
ly. You're probably someone
,who probably doesn't have
any business in the area any-
'way and maybe could wait a
little bit to go out and not get
caught up in that traffic jam.
Free music. For the person
complaining about the music
at the Gazebo not being free,
;you're right maybe the
Newspaper should have said
'donations required or expect-
ed. On the other hand, if you
really want free music, take
your radio out in the sunshine
and that will be free.
No control. I'm making a
comment about "Too spoil-
ed." I happen to be a parent
who picks up.their child from
4ch-ool-ly Fror the-efaeffhlat-'
children do not behave on the
,buses; the bus drivers do not
have any control over the chil -
dren.
I happen to know a bus dri-
ver who's not allowed to repri -
mand anybody.because of all


the parents of the bus kids
don't feel like another adult
has the right to discipline
their child even though it's for
the safety of the other chil-
dren on the bus. So I pick up
my child from school just for
that fact alone.
Get .real. I just wanted to
comment on Fran Valencic's
Around Town. She comments
on this whole thing with the
Venice Yacht Club and their
big dinner, how everyone felt
welcome. How many people
go to the Venice Yacht Club?
That does not represent
around town.
I would rather see some-
one go down to the South
Jetty and maybe talk to people
fishing or having hot dogs or
walking the beach. But
around townr- I'm looking at
these people and I don't think
most of us people in town
may ever get to look inside the
Venice Yacht Club. Around
town is not the yacht club, it's
the South Jetty, it's Main
Street, it's walking up the
beach. Tell Fran to stop look-
ing at people with black ties
and white shirts. They've got
their thing, fine, I don't hold
that against them, but that's
not around town as far as I'm
concerned.
Cut the fat. Hooray for
Richard Brady for his letter to
the editor. He hit it right on


the head. Money is not the
answer to better education.
The facts prove that we spend
more money per student than
they do in most countries in
the world. And still, every year
it seems we fall further and
further behind. Let's go back
to basics and include gymna-
sium classes. We would not
only. have smarter students,
but we would have leaner stu-
dents. Wake up and vote no
for the referendum on March
14. Let the school board cut
the fat from its budget the
way all of us have to do in our
everyday living. The money
does not go where it should
anyway.
Friendly groomer? I have a
question that I would like for
the readers of the paper to
help me with. Is it possible in
the city ofVenice to find a dog
groomer that does a good job,
takes good care of your dogs,
is friendly and will not over-
charge, will not treat you with
rudeness and will not act like
they really don't want your
business but will do it as a
favor?
Another idiom. I wish all
the people with the glass is
half empty mentality would
find another idiom besides
the diehard expression "get a
life." I already have a life; I
would just like to be able to
enjoy it.
No traffic help. Why do you
never see any Venice police-
men or sheriffs out at the
intersections, moving the
traffic along, especially like on
Thursday evening when the
traffic was all coming off of 75
and it was blocked for miles
and miles to South Venice
from Nokomis? Never see any
help out there.

ment average mean scores are

Never mind that our com-
munity was promised higher
test scores if it passed the
four-year referendum that is
now coming to an end; it is
right for us to expect results in
exchange for more than $100
million in new taxes.


There is not going to be
any impetus to improve our
schools,if poor performance
is rewarded with more than
$200 million.
Indeed, as reported by
ABC's "20/20" on Jan. 13, in a
story entitled "Stupid in
America," test scores declined
in school systems that dra-
matically increased funding.
One interviewee noted
that, "You can give public
schools all the money in
America, and it will not be
enough. Everyone has been
conned."
If we truly want to improve
the quality of our schools, we
should be employing meth-
ods and programs that pro-
duce quantifiable results.
More money is not the
answer.

that say throwing money at
the schools will not apprecia-
bly make a difference.
Our schools need more
money, with the inane system
the state uses to send some of
our taxpayers' money to other
counties. The problem is that
our leadership has not shown
restraint and this is just too
much money, in my estima-
tion at least $50 million
more than should be spent
In my book, that is real
money.

Indians let one get away in big way

6-run seventh inning rally allows Bayshore to
steal district game from VHS in baseball. I


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Winning ugly the phrase
most likely originated from
the mouth of a baseball per-
fectionist. Others aren't as
choosy.
"I've never seen an ugly
win," said Bayshore High
coach Charlie Smithers after
his team scored six times in
the top of the seventh inning
to defeat host Venice, 11-9.
"We're going to enjoy it. It's a
great win."
You can bet all Indian fans,
coaches and players at "The
Reservation" Friday night
included, know what losing
ugly is all about.
The Indians. entered the
seventh protecting a 9-5 lead.
With bullpen stopper Brett
Holte heading to the hill,
Venice appeared headed for a
Class 5A District 12 victory.
Instead, the Indians im-
ploded.
Holte had just worked six
innings behind the plate. At
the plate, he had boomed a
two-run homer and a one-
run double to help the In-
dians to their lead.
It just wasn't "Bubba's"
night on the mound, howev-
er.
For one, his uniform top
kept flying open on every
pitch. He would have to
rebutton his shirt after each
delivery. Holte had control
problems, walking three and
throwing a wild pitch to allow
a runner to score from third.
In between, Bayshore bat-
ted him around for a triple,
double and two singles.
The only saving grace for
Holte's ERA was the fact that a
key error made all six runs
unearned.
In all, the inning was
something Venice fans would
like to forget.
"Holte's shown he's a good
closer," Venice coach Craig
Faulkner said. "He didn't have
command tonight."
The ugly seventh inning
ruined a solid pitching effort
from starter Ryan Anderson.
The left-handed transfer from
North Carolina got his first
start of the season and


responded well. In 4 1/3
innings, he allowed two hits,
walked two and fanned
seven. He left the game with a
6-1 lead.
Bayshore rallied for four
runs off reliever Jason
Kaufman to close to within 6-
5.
Venice upped the lead to 7-
5 in the bottom of the fifth as
Pete Hernandez singled and
scored on a long double to
left-center by Holte.
Two more runs in the sixth
made it seem like Venice
would escape with a victory.
Hernandez drew a bases-
loaded walk to force in a run.
Holte bounced a fielder's
choice ball in back of second
that would plate Ricky Ster-
ailko, making it 9-5.
Holte, who finished with
four RBIs on the night,
banged a two-run homer to
left in the second to break a
scoreless tie.
Bayshore got one back in
the top* of the third, but
Venjce erupted with four in
the bottom. Jeremie Cook,
who was seeing his first
action of the season, reached
on an error. Joe Salomone fol-
lowed with a single. Jordan
Lucas plated Cook with a
double down the left field
line. Mike Atamanchuk had a
two-run single to make it 5-1.
Jordan Wean had the second
of his three singles on the
night to plate another run.
Venice appeared to be in
total control at 6-1.
"It's tough to let a game get
away like this," Faulkner
said. "You can't have four er-
rors. Errors always come back
to get you."
Venice (2-4 overall, 2-2 in
district) will play Manatee at
G.T. Bray Park on Tuesday
night.
"We'll see what kind of
team we have," Faulkner
said.
Bayshore improved to 4-2
overall and 2-2 in district play.

STAFF REPORT

The Venice High varsity
softball team stepped out of
district Friday night with a lit-
tle road trip to Fort Myers.
The end result was famil-
iar, as the Lady Indians
roughed up Bishop Verot, 14-
1 in a game shortened to five
innings because of the mercy
rule.
Venice improved its record
to 8-1.
The Lady Indians scored
four runs in the first inning,
four more in the second
inning and five in the third to
turn the game into a laugher.
Brittany Hipple gave the
Lady Indians a lift with a
three-run home run in the
first inning. Maureen
Sandidge had a two-run dou-
ble to highlight the second.
Kristen Bailey doubled in the
third.
Sandidge finished with
three hits. Heather Laird had
two hits.
Coach Larry Sandburg
started Courtney Bennett
behind the plate, Mandy
Clements in right field and
Crystal Hess in left field. All
responded with hits.
Laird was the winning
pitcher, raising her personal
record to 5-0. She allowed two
hits and struck out five over
three innings. Kayla Ellingsen
relieved and allowed one hit
in two innings work.


Hippie
Venice jumps back into
district this week with three
games all on the road. The
Lady Indians are at Bayshore

nesday and play Manatee at
G.T. Bray Park Thursday. The

They CERTainly know how to




deal with emergencies


The Nokomis Volunteer Fire Department has
been training civilians to be first responders in
case of disasters like hurricanes.


BYJEREMY ROTTGEN
STAFF WRITER ,

The Nokomis Volunteer
Fire Department Inc. has
been making citizens better
prepared to deal with emer-
gencies something that has
hit pretty close to home these
last few years.
Community Emergency
Response Teams (CERT) are
citizen groups that have been
organized and trained to pro-
vide vital. services in the
absence of emergency
responders, whose arrival
may be delayed by hours or,
in some cases, even days due
to the magnitude of an inci-
dent.
"Everyone that comes
through this class has nothing
but excellent things to say
about it," Nokomis Deputy
Fire Chief Paul Hellriegel said.
"The value of these citizens
out there helping us on these
emergencies is top-notch to
us because they're already
triaging and getting these
people ready for us and iden-
tifying the hazards first,
because we're not always
going to be there first. We here


at Nokomis Fire really don't
have to promote it because of
word of mouth."
Love thy neighbor
When a major incident
occurs, CERT trainees are bet-
ter prepared to immediately
assist those in distress.
Training prepares citizens to
deal with events and take
appropriate action.
"We were the only ones to
start the CERT program on
the West Coast of Florida back
in 2001, actually before 9/11,"
Hellriegel said. "Ever since
then we've done numerous
classes. We have more classes
now because the CERT pro-
gram has really taken off after
the storms and 9/11. FEMA
and Homeland Security are
really promoting CERT."
Hellriegel and Division
Chief Jack Doyle teach the
program to residents of
Nokomis and surrounding
communities. The class is
even more effective when
neighborhoods take the class
together, so that neighbors
can help each other and know
who is where. Hellriegel said
they had about three new

ing exercise.


communities that wanted to
start the program, which
averages 25-30 people a class.
'In total, the class has been
taught to more than 250 indi-
viduals.
"We teach the program to
businesses as well," Doyle
said. "We taught a group of
Wal-Mart managers, so they
could go back and teach dif-
ferent stores how to handle
emergencies, We're also in the
process of developing Teen
SERT, which is school emer-
gency response."
Certain future
The U.S. Fire Administra-
tion and the Federal Emerg-
ency Management Agency
(FEMA) Director of the Pre-
paredness Division, R. David
Paulison, visited Nokomis in
October 2004 to announce an

award through the 2004 As-
sistance to Firefighters Grant
program. Paulison announc-
ed that the Nokomis Vol-
unteer Fire Department
would receive $97,938 in fed-
eral funds to purchase 20 sets
of personal protective equip-
ment for the department.
The Assistance to Fire-
fighters Grant Program made
available $750 million to fire
departments across the
country and is administered
by Homeland Security's Of-
fice for Domestic Prepared-
ness in cooperation with the
department's United States
Fire Administration. Funds
for the Nokomis department's
CERT program came from
that program.
Sarasota now offers CERT


training, but Nokomis was
still the first and is recognized
as the hub for training.
When Sarasota started its
CERT program, Nokomis
helped the county initiate the
training.
"We also teach them when
the actual professional emer-
gency responders show up
they are able to give us a
report," Doyle said.
"CERT training is about
readiness, people helping
people, rescue safety and
doing the greatest good for
the greatest number," said


Southbay resident Don Rut-
ter. "CERT training is a posi-
tive and realistic approach to
emergency and disaster situ-
ations where citizens do
make a difference. Katrina
and Rita are vivid examples of
the importance of being pre-
pared."
Hellriegel and Doyle re-
cently attended a CERT con-
ference in Palm Beach Gard-
ens where they were able to
see the latest techniques for
retailiating against crises.

Let it grow, let it grow, let it grow


CAROL MOZIK


Two requests I've received
recently are for information
on Florida grasses. When
you first come to Florida to
visit or to purchase property,
you notice distinctly that
Florida grasses are different.
The blades are very coarse
and it seems you get to pick a
new lawn, or you inherit an
already established lawn or
are challenged -with the up-
keep (like we are) of a ne-
glected Bahia grass lawn
that is patchy and full of
weeds, fading to no grass at
all. In one area, our neigh-
bor's Floratam has crept over
to make blended growth. We
also were not blessed with
a sprinkler system. There
seems to be a split decision
on this, and a matter of
opinion, due to water con-

servation and rationing of
water. Sounds like it would
be a good idea to me, if you
follow your local strict con-
servation guidelines for lawn
watering.
Before I wrote an article, I
asked my expert on lawn
care, PEJ. Greenberg, owner of
Basic Landscaping of Venice,
504-3307, for his help in writ-
ing about Florida grasses
popular here in Southwest
Florida. He's always been
forthcoming with any ques-
tions I might have about my
sad and sorry lawn. The need
for its care is moving up
quickly on my personal
"honey do" list.
PEJ. advises that there are
Basically two types of grass
popular here. St. Augustine,
of which Floratam is most
commonv and widely used,
and Bitter Blue for shady
areas. Eighty percent of his
customers prefer that pallets
of sod be installed for an
instant lawn. Bahia can also
be purchased in pallets, vari-
eties being Pensacola and
Argentine. Each pallet will
cover 400 square feet. so the
normal 80- by 125- by 10,000-
square foot lot would need
about 20 pallets. Some people
even choose Floratam for the
front yard and Bahia for out'
back. Whatever the case, you
can purchase them at bulk
supply centers or your local
big-box store. Make sure your
sod is of good quality; P.J- ,

what you pay for."
Another technique Green-
berg uses is over-seeding
Bahia grass lawns. It is a
quick and fast ,way to keep
your established Bahia lawn
thick and healthy. Start by
de-thatching in spring (pref-
erably soon, before the robins
have a field day with the
seed) or fall. Ten pounds of
seed will cover 4,000 square
feet, so you'll neediat least
two 10-pound buckets. Fol-
low directions on your drop
spreader, cover with pine
needles or straw and water at
least two or three times a
week. Watch the rain gauge
to make sure you get 1 inch
of water on the new ,seed.
Remember the instant rain
gauge, the infamous tuna
can? You may fertilize both
sod and seed with a 5-5-2.
Whatever you do, be patient;
it may take 10-14 days for
germination.
Remember cutting re-
quirements, too. Bahia needs
to be mowed at 3-1/2 inches,
Floratam at 4-1/2 to 5
inches.
Good luck w-idh your gar-
dening endeavors.

route has 13 homes to visit
and drop off a food bag. I
think we are now up to seven
routes delivering just fewer
than 100 food bags each
month.
As we went over the list
and reviewed the needs,
Brian commented how he ini-
tially thought it would not
take long to run the route. But
he learned each stop brought
an elder who wanted to talk
and visit as well as thank him
for bringing the food. Each
person reached out to him. To
each one he was a special vis-
itor-friend.
One stop became an
epiphany. As Brian brought
the food into the house he
noticed the lady was on oxy-
gen. She had tubes under her
nose and a long thin hose
snaked its way through the
house. The lady asked many
questions about the new
Medicare Part D program.

Venice's Only Continuing Car
Retirement Community


Not unusual these days. The
epiphany came as Brian was
leaving the house. At each
home he asked was there
anything he could do for
them before he left. She asked
him to move a chair from the
living room to her bedside. At
this point Brian started to
tear. "It was just a chair," he
said; it was not a big chair it
was no big deal to move it to
the bedside. She was unable
to do this chore herself.
Brian kept saying, "It was
only a chair, I just moved a
chair."
He realized that day, and
proved again to me how the
seemingly little acts of kind-
ness we do make a huge dif-
ference in the lives of others.
"It was only a chair."

Brian just left my office in a
hurry. Brian is a snowbird
who volunteers regularly in
the: Friendship At Home/-
Faith in Action Program. He is
good.
Today .he filled in for
another volunteer who is on
vacation to deliver food bags
to our elders who have a hard
time accessing our local food
pantries, mostly due to trans-
portation availability. This


ed. On cold days they would
freeze but we still hung them
outside. On rainy days we had
to hang them on lines in the
basement. All of this was for a
family of five to seven, and
included bedding. The entire
back-breaking effort took a
full day, and was done once a
week.
We were in the basement
with our hands full no TV,
no phones, no ability to be
doing other things.
Before she started all of
this she had to cook breakfast,
pack some lunch boxes, make
sure that the children were all
up and ready for school and
probably a half dozen other
things. I dunno.
After washing was done
and folded and some put
away for ironing the next day,
it was probably time to mix
dough for bread and rolls and
to bake apie for supper. When
through cooking and serving
supper she had clothes to
mend and socks to dam. I bet
many of you remember darn-
ing socks. Who remembers
the name of that wooden
thing-a-ma-jig we used to put
inside the socks?
We had oil lamps because
we had no electricity. I helped
mother fill the lamps, trim the
wicks and clean the globes.
Mother made dishtowels out
of flour sacks. Needless to say
the chores went on and on,
and my mother often quoted
the well-known phrase, "Men
work from sun up to sun
down, but a woman's work is
never done." I do at times
remember my father working
from 4 a.m. to 10 p.m. Still, at
times my mother would play
a game of dominoes after she
helped the children withtheir,
schoolwork.--:i i.
Now I'll just have to guess a
typical life of a modern


woman, and particularly
those trying to have a career
along with managing a home
and a family.
She has to get up early to
make breakfast, or perhaps
even earlier to exercise
(remember, we got our exer-
cise doing the wash). Career
women have to take time to
look their professional best,
and get the children off to
school or day care. Driving,
including pick-ups and drop-
offs, may take 45 minutes.
Each week involves as
much as 60 hours of work,
meetings, interruptions and
unexpected glitches. On the
way home she sometimes has
to pick up the laundry, stop at
the grocery store and for gas,
then pick up the children.
Hopefully there is a husband
to help.
Sure she has a washing
machine and cold-water
soap. But I wonder how many
things the average women
has to do while one wash and

Is cooking supper less
complex, or more? We ate
whatever was put on the

today are allowed to have
many "special requests".
The modem woman has
all of the "modern conve-

easier? I dunno. My guess is
that women in my mother's
era had more physical strain,
and today's women have
more stress. But who has the
busier life I dunno?

I wonder how the very
busy lives of today's typical
women compare with those
of our mothers and grand-
mothers. Were our mothers
and grandmothers busier,
and did they work harder? Or
was their life simpler and
more tranquil? I dunno.
My mother lived on a farm,
and had no car. She also didn't
have running water or elec-
tricity, so life was a bit differ-
ent. I remember quite a bit
about life at that time, so let's
start with a typical wash day.
We washed clothes in the
basement of our Indiana farm
home. There was a wood
stove down there just for
washing, and a large copper
boiler for boiling sheets and
white clothes. There was also
a contraption with a wringer
that had to be cranked by
hand, and had wash tubs on
each side. Many of the clothes
had to be hand scrubbed with
Fels-Naptha soap on a wash-
board. So the routine was boil
or scrub (or both), crank away
while it went through the
ringers, rinse, 'and crank it
through the ringer again.
Unless it was raining we
hung the clothes outside on a
'dine towdry, Hanging the laun-
dry with clothespins was my
favorite part. The clothes
smelled so good freshly wash-

Coping with Alzheimer's


STAFF REPORT

Americans are now living
longer than ever before.
That's good news, but there
can be a down side.
Since advanced age is a
primary factor for Alzheim-
er's disease (AD), the possi-
bility of millions developing
it can be a daunting prospect
for families and for society.
Right now there are about
4.5 million Americans with
the disease. By 2050, as many
as 16 million could be affect-
ed. One in 10 Americans 65
and older and almost half of
those over 85 are at risk.
AD is a gradual, degenera-
tive brain disease affecting a
person's personality, ability
to manage daily activities,
and capacity to remember,
think, use language appropri-
ately and learn new things. If
you suspect that you or a
loved one may have AD, the
first step is to seek medical
attention to find the cause.
Sometimes another condi-
tion which is treatable may
be causing the symptoms, or
if it is AD there are new
medications that may be able
to delay the progression of
symptoms if begun early in
the course of the disease.
Caring for someone with


AD is a long, ever-changing
journey. It's helpful to start
planning as early as possible
in the illness and to seek help
when you need it. When a
loved one has AD, there are
ways to make life easier and
to help both you and your
loved one cope with the
condition.
Focus on the positive.
Let small successes bring
satisfaction.
Continue to communi-
cate with your family mem-
ber and always treat him or
her as an adult.
Be patient with yourself
as well as with your family
member.
Don't be afraid to exper-
iment and try new ways to
best meet his or her needs.
Be prepared to anticipate
hazards and adjust the envi-
ronment. Potential dangers
can include smoking, cook-
ing, power equipment, steps,
scatter rugs, swimming pools,
household cleaners, medica-
tions and razor blades.
Use night lights, install
grab bars in the bathroom,
and lower the hot water tem-
perature to prevent bums.
Try to establish a struc-
tured, daily routine including
pleasurable activities such as
listening to music and house-


hold tasks your loved one can
perform.
Consider speaking with
an elder-law attorney early in
the illness. Your family mem-
ber may want you or some-
one else to make financial
and health-care decisions.
Focus on feelings, not
facts and be aware on non-
verbal communication.
As a caregiver, you also
need to remember to take
care of yourself. Eat properly.
Get adequate rest and exer-
cise. When you can, schedule
recreation and relaxation
away from the situation.
Consider joining a care-
giver support group. It can
provide both emotional sup-
port and practical assistance.
Become an educated
caregiver gradually. Too
much information at one
time can seem overwhelm-
ing. One good source is a free
booklet from the Metlife
Mature Market Institute
called "Alzheimer's Disease
- Caregiving Challenges."

B3 'icki Connell.
M.A.. CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. Recently. I woke up with
a loss of hearing in my right
ear. I saw my doctor who
prescribed an antibiotic. Ten
days have gone by, I am out
of medication, and I still
cannot hear out of my ear.
What should I do?
A. When a person experiences
sudden hearing loss they
logically head for their
primary care physician.
Unfortunately, some doctors do
not realize that this condition is
a medical emergency and
instead, take a "wait and see"
attitude. Sudden hearing loss
should always be treated like
any other medical emergency -
immediately. You cannot afford
to waste time if you hope to get
your hearing back. In fact, the
best time to treat sudden
hearing loss is within the first
24 to 48 hours. Treatment
usually involves medications
and procedures that an
Otologist is best qualified to
administer. Knowing when a
hearing loss is a medical
emergency or not is impossible
for a layperson to determine. If
you have a cold, have a
blocked feeling this would nbt
be an emergency but if you
have a cold, and have an
infection of your inner ear then
this would be an emergency
requiring immediate attention.
Since you have no way of
knowing the cause of a sudden
hearing loss, it is better to be
safe than sorry. Always contact
an Otologist immediately if
you experience a sudden loss
of hearing. The Audiologists at
Woodmere Hearing &
Balance Centers, Inc. will
perform the testing the
Otologist will need and insure
that doctor sees you promptly.
Call 492-4327 at the first
signs of sudden hearing loss.

Fine print leave you



feeling like fare game?


Flying over


Venice


. BY CAROL PUCCI
"GESTWRITER

.How often have you be-
-come excited about a bargain
'airfare only to find out that
States and fees will add an
additional $200 to the price?
What about the Internet
photos that make a hotel
room appear to be double its
'actual size?
Or how about the cruise-
line brochures that answer all
your questions about casinos,
spas and shore excursions but
relegate to tiny print the infor-
mation that a port of call can
be dropped or the itinerary
changed without notice?
My New Year's resolution
for the travel industry is to put
More truth into traveling.
I began thinking about this
after I searched Northwest
'Airlines' Web site recently and
-'spotted a $578 fare from
,Seattle to London in bold
black letters. Then I looked
'again, and saw the real price
$701 including taxes and
,fees in tiny type.
It's not unusual for travel
;suppliers to quote prices
without taxes. This often hap-
Spens when you call a hotel
and ask for the rate. But it's
hardly good customer service,
and it's especially annoying
when you're shopping the
online travel sites to compare
prices.
Some delay disclosing the
real price until you're into the
'second or third round of
clicks. Airgorilla.com, for
'-instance;- lists-air fares in big-
,-"black numbers with the
words "plus taxes" next to itin
small type. It's only when you
'click on "go," that you find out.
that a $592 Seattle-Tokyo
round trip is really $753.
I Bottom line: More online
travel sites would do well to
Follow the lead of Expedia and
;Travelocity. Both list one price
-when quoting the cost of air-
fares, hotels and rental cars,
the only one that really mat-
ters, the one that includes all
taxes and fees.
There are some legit last-
minute travel deals out there,i
'but finding them quickly isn't
as easy as it once was. The key

is "from," meaning that unless
you're willing to stay in a bud-
get motel and lose a day by
taking a night flight, most
anything is going to cost more
than the initially quoted price.
Travel sites such as
Site59.com, which specializes
in last-minute three- and
four-day air/hotel getaways,
do a good job of efficiently
bundling air and hotel pack-
ages, but the bargains are
sometimes not what they
appear.
Example: The only hotel
choice for a recently adver-
tised $227 per person three-
night vacation to Lake Tahoe
was the budget A and A Lake
Tahoe Inn. The next option
was a Hyatt Regency resort
and spa at an extra cost of
$215 per person. Three choic-
es for departing flights came
up, each an extra $41-$60.
Go-today.com, which
offers similar deals on short
trips to foreign destinations,
recently advertised a three-
night, four-day winter
"Ixtapa/Zihuaantanej o
Getaway." The air inclusive
package price was advertised
"from $489," but this was per-
person based on double
occupancy in the least-
expensive hotel, the Posada
Real Ixtapa, a Best Western
where user reviews on
TripAdvisor.com range from'
"We love it!" to "Will never
stay here ever."
That price, as it turned out,'
applied only to departures
from Denver. Adding in an
,additional- $90- each for a%
Seattle .departure, $40 each
for leaving on a weekend and
$200 for fees and surcharges,
the grand total rang up at
$1,458.
Resolution: Eliminate the
"deals" that really aren't, and
concentrate on putting to-
gether packages that really do
make sense for the last-
minute traveler.
A magnifying glass should-
n't be counted as a travel
accessory, but it's a tool most
travelers would be happy to
find in their stocking this
morning.

The Fun Ships,


is to be more up front about
the strings attached to the ser-
vices they provide.
It's in no one's interest to
hide information about what
happens if a' cruise line drops
a port of call or a tour opera-
tor changes the itinerary, yet
the details often end up
buried in a category labeled
"legal notices" at the bottom
of a Web page or in the "gen-.
eral terms and conditions"
portions of a travel brochures.
Let's hear it for large type.
Banks lately have been
more straightforward in dis-
closing the fees they charge
for using credit cards abroad.
Most now break out the
charges as separate items ofn
statements instead of embed-
ding them into the exchange
rate they use to convert pur-
chases into dollars.
As a result, more cus-
tomers are now aware of the
fees. Still, you won't find any
mention of foreign currency
conversion charges in the
lengthy list of Visa and
MasterCard FAQs published
by financial institutions on
their Web sites.
Nor will you find an expla-
nation of something called
"dynamic currency conver-
sion," a system that lets over-
seas merchants or rental-car
agencies convert your bill
from the local currency
(euros, Canadian dollars,
Mexican pesos, etc.) into dol-
lars on the spot.
This is marketed as a "ser-
vice" to customers who won't
have -ro bother "with1 messy
foreign -exchange. calcula-;,
tions," according to one pro-
moter.
It's mostly a money-mak-
ing scheme for merchants
who set the exchange rate 5-6
cents on the dollar higher
than the official bank rate,
then pocket the difference as
a "service fee."
What to do to avoid this?
Read the fine print, of course.
There's a note on the sales
invoice that says by signing,
you agree to have your charge
converted to dollars. Refuse to
sign. If the merchant protests,
walk away. This is one "ser-
vice" you can afford to do
without.

A WORD, PRF


"Walk" and "stroll" are syn-
onyms. "Tall" and "short" are
antonyms. So what are "dove"
and "dove" if one is a bird and
the other is the past tense of
the verb "to dive"?
, Didyou say "homonyms"?
SGoodfor you. I mean,
thhf's wrong, but at least
you're no worse off than I was

homographs from homonyms


until 15 minutes ago when I
read an e-mail with the same
question.
Writes Dave Lessley of
Glendale, Calif.: "What do you
call these words? They are
spelled the same, but have
different meanings., At first I
thought they were homo-
nyms, but those are words
that sound alike, but have dif-
ferent meanings. These don't
fit that because they don't
sound alike; they are only
spelled alike."
Now a few of you may have
scanned your memory banks
and discovered, in a dusty
corner of your mind, the word
homophonee." Good work.
You're doing better than
.either. Dave or I, but still no
oigaia -
M, Tlid-'correct Word, which I
found in my "Oxford English


I


Grammar," is homographh."
"Homographs are spelled
the same but pronounced dif-
ferently," Oxford tells us, be-
fore handily listing some ex-
amples: the verb "lead" and
the metal "lead"; "does," the
present singular of "do," ver-
sus '"does," the plural of the
female deer "doe"; "sow," as in
putting seeds in the ground,
versus, "sow," a female pig.
Homonyms, on the other
hand, are "distinct words that
happen to have the same
form." Examples of homo-
nyms are include the "bank"
where you put money as
opposed to the "bank" of a
river and the swimming bird

WORD on ast ,


known as a "duck" versus the
act of moving your head out
of harm's way really fast.
Words spelled differently
but pronounced the same are
"homophones." '"Ate" and
"eight," "than" and "then,"
and "hare" and "hair" are all
homophones.
Homophobes are people
who stopped reading three
paragraphs ago because the
word roots in this column
made them uncomfortable:
But how to remember all
this? Well, homophone is
probably the easiest to re-
member because the root
"phone," which we all know
so well, refers specifically to
sound.
Homophones are sound-
alikes.
Homonyms you can think
of as "homo-names" one
name shared by two different


words. The river's edge shares
one name with the money
depository-- bank.
The "graph" in homograph
suggests visual images in-
stead of sounds: a bar graph,
graphic violence.
So homographs are visual-
ly identical.
Those of you like to quit
while you're ahead might
want to skip this next part. I
know I do. Because, as I've
just learned, there exist things
called "homomorphs." This
one will definitely not be on
the quiz because it seems to
me a lot less useful than the
others.
'"Homomorphs" are words
that are basically the same in
meaning but are distinct
grammatically. In other
words, "ache" is a noun, and
it's a verb. So "ache" the noun
and "ache" the verb are


homomorphs.
"Fast" is an adjective and
it's an adverb. "Trash" is not
only a noun for garbage but a
slang verb for, "to throw away
or discard," which is what I'm
going to do with this bit of
information.
Last but not least, there are
"polysemes," which are like
homonyms just more closely
related.
Unlike river banks and
money banks, which are two
distinctly different things, the
hands of a person and the
hands of a clock seem much
more similar.
In fact, intuition suggests
that the clock parts were
named after the body parts.
And that's why "hand," in this
case is a polyseme and not a
homonym.
"Grasp" is another exam-
ple of a word with polyse-


mous variations: You can
grasp something physically,
which was probably the
word's first meaning, or you
can grasp it mentally, which
seems a natural extension of
the former.
How can you know the dif-
ference?
In most dictionaries, a word's
polysemes all come under a
single, definition. Its homo-
nyms get separate entries.
"Poly," of course, originates
from "many," which reminds
me that this may be one too
many bits of information.

Getting new clothes for spring


SLIM RANDLES
GUEST (OLUMNIS


"Whenever we get tired of
breathing the same air," said
Doc, "along comes spring."
"Yep," Dud said. "I breathed
some this morning that came
from the next state. I could taste
at least two mountain ranges in
it as well as a coal-burning


whatchamacallitt"
"I like spring, though," Doc
said. "Ic.alwavs calls for a new
set6flOThes. '-"" "
Ste\'e looked up from his
coffee. "You buy a new suit in
springtime, Doc?"
"You never heard of spring
fashions?"
"Must've missed that, out
on the ranch."
"Naturally, spring brings to
us," Doc said, in his I coulda-
been- a-college- professor
voice, "wind from all direc-
tions, cleansing us, refreshing
us..."
"Knocking over full-grown
cows... "Steve added.
... yes, that too. And with
the blessings of spring, we
discover all kinds of interest-
ing information. Such as,


what are the neighbors to
windward doing these days?
Well, go look in the hedge and
you'll see the Thompson kids
have switched from regular
potato chips to barbecue.
There's the empty bag. You
know that new guy? Drinks
wine. Couple of empties
rolled past my porch just yes-
terday. His dog was trying to
catch them. Can you turn
those in for money?"
"Dogs? Don't think so."
"Wine bottles. Oh well,
anyway, I like to go out and
watch the little calves snort
and run around in the wind."
Steve said, "I can tell you it
isn't a whole buncha fun rid-
ing colts when the wind
comes up. They're pretty
goosy to start with and the


wind only makes things
worse..They get rollers in their
noses and start thinking.ro.ks.
and fence posts-are sneaking
up on them."
"That's the truth," Dud said.
"So the mild zephyrs that
refresh us," Doc said, waving
his arms pontifically, "grow
and flourish until the neigh-
bor's cinder blocks start blow-
ing by, and we can learn to
lean as we walk... "
"Right, Doc," Steve said,
"but you said we need new
clothes for spring?"
"You betcha. Clothes with
big pockets in 'em. That way
you can fill them with rocks
for ballast."

Eyes on potatoes


STAFF REPORT

When you peel away all
the mystery about nutrients,
potatoes are right up there
as a power food. Potatoes are
a wonderful source of com-
plex carbs and thus function
as a great energy food. They
are also fat-free.
What makes potatoes even
more interesting is that they
are a good source of potassi-
um and fiber. They are also
an excellent source of vita-
min C and are naturally low
in sodium.
Potassium plays an im-
portant role in maintaining
healthy blood pressure. The
2005 Dietary Guidelines for
Americans say a potassium-
rich diet also blunts the ef-
fects of salt on blood pres-


sure, may reduce the risk of
developing' kidney stones,
and could possibly decrease
bone loss with age.
Fiber has a number of
health benefits, including im-
proving regularity and re-
ducing the risk of coronary
disease.
One medium baked po-
tato, with the skin, offers 3
grams of dietary fiber at only
10 calories. That makes po-
tatoes an excellent source of
fiber, a fact which surprises
many people.
For more information con-
cerning the health benefits of.
potatoes and potato recipes,
visit the Idaho Potato Commis-
sion Web site at idahopotato.
com and 5aday. org for infor-
mation on eating a colorful
variety of fruits and vegetables.

Older people are often very
concerned about how to best reduce
body fat as a means of preventing
such health problems as heart disease
and diabetes. However, excess fat does
provide the benefit of maintaining bone mass.
Fat loss through diet alone can lead to bone
loss, worsening the body's natural age-related
bone loss, which is a major risk factor for bone
fractures. Now, a new study shows that exercise
helps maintain bone mass in people ages 55-75.
This finding challenges the idea'that fat-burning
exercise by older individuals harm bone health.
This is the first study to examine the impact of
exercise independent of other factors, particularly
diet, on bone mineral density and the risk of
osteoporosis and fractures.
This informativecolumn on bone density has
been brought to you as a public service from the
Doctors of Twin Palms Chiropractic. We're located
at 1214-c Venice Ave. East, where we will only
accept you as a patient if we sincerely feel we can
help you. We provide safe and gentle chiropractic
care for the entire family. Please call 941-412-
3800 to schedule an appointment. We offer
massage therapy and have 4 licensed massage
therapists on staff.
P.S. According to the study mentioned above,
) moderate-intensity exercise was found to
) increase the bone mass of older individuals who
had the greatest increases in aerobic fitness and
muscle strength.

Gray fox a common sight here


At twilight, and into the
night, common gray foxes
(yes, "common" is part of the
name of this species) can
often be seen as they go about
their foraging for food.
Though they're quick to
hide when frightened, they
can be bold, checking out
garbage, cat or dog food
bowls left outside, and other
easy sources of food. Oc-
casionally, they're seen in,
thick brush or foliage. And,'


they're even seen in trees.
The gray fox is the only
North American member of
the canid (dog) family that
has true climbing ability. It
will seek shelter in trees, espe-
cially if the tree leans or is
thickly branched. Its long
back claws dig into bark as it
climbs.
I heard about one gray fox
that was spotted resting 30
feet up in a tree. Another was
seen on the "arm" of a big,
spiny, saguaro cactus.'
All foxes are omnivores .-
they eat any sort of food.
Diets change with the sea-
sons and availability: insects,
grasses, berries, young rab-
bits and birds, eggs, crayfish,
corn, apples, wild cherries,
grapes, nuts, small mammals
(like mice, rats, moles), and
sometimes even carrion (al-
ready-dead meat).
Even when well fed, a fox
will continue to hunt. It hides
food in a cache for availability
at a later time.
The common gray fox is a


slow runner. It must rely on
surprise to catch prey. Its
well-camouflaged coat is a
real help in this type of hunt-
ing. I love to watch this hide-
and-pounce hunting pattern.
Gray foxes are sometimes
mistaken for red foxes, but all
red foxes have a white tip on
their tails. Gray foxes -
though they sometimes have
a lot of reddish coloration on
their sides, chests, legs, feet
and the backs of their heads
- have a black tip on their
tails.
These foxes usually weigh
between 7 and 13 pounds,
and are 14-15 inches tall.
They're close in size to a large
cat. Common gray foxes
make cat-like yowls, but are
not as vocal as red foxes.
Generally, foxes live alone.
Only during mating season
do they pair off. Their dens for
raising young are built in nat-
ural cavities in woodlands, on
rock slopes or in hollow logs
and trees.
Fox territories are small,


and the boundaries are gen-
erally marked with urine and
fecal droppings, indicating to
other foxes that "this territory
is taken."
I've often heard farmers
complain about foxes "raid-
ing the hen house." Today,
farms are more predator-
proof, so there is less need to
kill foxes to protect farm ani-
mals.
But humans remain the
fox's primary enemy. How-
ever, foxes are valuable con-
tributors to life in Florida, and
in all of North America. They
help maintain the proper bal-
ance of nature, playing a
unique role in the natural
world.

Jalma Barrett, a Sarasota
resident, is the author of 14
books about animals, includ-
ing "Foxes" (also available in
Spanish, "Los Zorros"), part of
her Wild Canines of North
America book series, as well
as hundreds of magazine
articles.

Rabies: truth and consequences


BY DR. JIM RANDOLPH
SPECIAL TO THE SUN

Rabies is a word that
strikes fear in every one of us.
Yet, the disease is little under-
stood by most pet owners.
Rabies is a central nervous
system disorder caused by a
virus. Usually domesticated
animals (cats, dogs, ferrets,
horses, cattle, any mammal is
susceptible) are infected by
the bite of a wild animal, most
commonly a skunk, fox, coy-
ote or raccoon. In certain
parts of the United States,
wildlife rabies is common,
and commonly spills over to
domesticated animals unfor-
tunate enough to come in
contact with infected wildlife.
A simplified version of the
pathogenesis of rabies fol-
lows. When an infected ani-
mal bites its victim, the virus
spends a little time replicat-
ing (making more virus) in
skin and muscle tissue. Soon
it finds a nerve to enter, and
begins its ultimate journey to
the brain. During the time
between the bite and entry to
the brain the victim is asymp-
tomatic: he shows no sign of
being rabid.
The time between the bite
of a rabid animal and entry of
virus into the brain is called
the incubation period..Dur-
ing this time, there is no out-
ward evidence that anything
is wrong with the victim, and,
should he bite someone or
something, there is little or


no risk of his a
victim being
infected.
How long
incubation
lasts is deter-
mined mostly
by the loca-
tion of the
bite where the
virus entered.
If the wound
is on the head
or neck, the
trip to' the
brain is quite
short and
incubation
could be as
short as two
weeks. If the '
entry point is .,
on a rear foot, .
the trip is
longer, and .
incubation
could be two
to several
months.
Once the
virus enters
the brain,
there is but a Wild animals lil
short time coons from Sar
before it mitted to the la
reaches the.
salivary glands and is shed in
large quantities in saliva,
making a bite wound an
excellent way to transmit the
deadly organism.
There is a dangerous time
period, usually about three
days, in which there is rabies
virus in the saliva, but the


ke this raccoon look cuddly and inviting, but rabies is a real danger
asota County have tested positive for rabies since Feb. 6. The racco
laboratory due to encounters with pet dogs owned by Sarasota reside


infected animal appears nor-
mal. A penetrating "play" bite
during this time may easily
transmit virus and infect yet
,another victim. Worst of all,
veterinarians and physicians
may not suspect rabies from a
bite from an asymptomatic
animal, allowing the replica-


tion of virus in the new victim
to continue untreated initial-
ly, increasing the risk of brain
damage and even death.
After the third day most
dogs and cats will exhibit typ-
ical "Or Yeller" signs of rabies:
viciousness, paralysis, sei-
zures and stumbling. Some,


however, will
display the
P "dumb" form
of rabies and
simply act de-
pressed,
unwilling to
eat, drink, go
outside or
even react to
stimuli.
Most dogs
and cats will
die in 5-8
days after ex-
hibiting clini-
cal signs of
rabies.
Rabies in
wildlife, how-'
ever, can take
a very differ-
ent course,
making in-
fected wild
animals all
the more
dangerous. In
skunks and
foxes, rabies

dents. appears ab-
normal, and
even more time may pass
before it dies of the disease. In
that time period, many, many
victims may become ex-
posed.
Further, "vertical" trans-
mission of the virus is known
to occur, in which rabies is
passed from mother to off-


-0
spring prior to birth, or in thf
mother's milk. The young ca4
be bom carrying the virus. 1
some species, the virus ma4
be carried in the body fio
years before causing signs in
the infected animal. I
Since Hurricane Katrin i
hit the Mississippi Gulf Coa*t
and eastern Louisiana, wild-
life has been in disarray. Op
the very city street where my
hospital is located a skunk
was found dead in the roal
just two weeks ago. After 21
years, it was the first skunic
I've ever seen here. No or4
tested it to determine
whether it might have strayed
because it was disoriented
from rabies, perhaps because
we are all so busy in our
attempts at recovery. 4
Likewise, other wild ant-
mal species abound, and
many raccoons have made
municipalities their home
because of easy access t
food. Well-meaning homd-
owners feed them, raccoori
easily enter garbage cans a r
dumpsters, and the warmi
areas under and around yo.a
home offer welcome respite
from winter's cold.
It can be fascinating tb
observe wild animals il
nature, but, use caution,
and avoid interacting with
them.

erinarian at Animal Genertl
Hospital in Long Beach, '

ONE LAST WORD


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

Traditional Old Tyme Music


The traditional old tyme music performed by Betty and Carl
Ross is, according to the Rosses, "music gleaned from the
immigrants homeland and altered to a unique lifestyle in the
Appalachians of the new world in the 1840s to 1920s".


Betty and Carl Ross will perform old tyme music at the
Oscar Scherer State Park Nature Center in Osprey at 2 p.m.
every Thursday through March 30. The concert is free; park
entrance fee is $4. Oscar Scherer State Park is located at 1843
South Tamiami Trail.
The couple invites everyone to bring their acoustic instru-
ments to participate in the jams. You can contact Betty or Carl
Ross at (419) 566-5649.


Guitarist and singer Jim Dunn, Nokomis, joined Thursday's jam.


Barb Godfrey of Columbia, Mo., joined the Rosses playing the
dulcimer.

HOLY SPIRIT PRAYER
Holy Spirit you who opened
my eyes to the beauty of this
world and gave me the divine
gift to forgive and forget the
wrong done to me.
You who showed me the way
to reach my ideals. You who
never leave me I want to thank
you for everything and confirm
once more I never want to be
separated from you, no mat-
ter how great the material
desire may be. I want to be
with you my loved ones in your
perpetual glory. Amen. Thank
you for loving me and my
loved ones. Pray this prayer
for 3 consecutive days with-
out asking a favor. The third
day wish will be granted.
Promise to publish this dia-
logue as soon as favor is
granted. CB.

Your office coach


Q,. My boss is sarcastic
. land likes to yell at us.
SWhen I confronted
him about this, he
blew up! He threw his arms
S around and his face got red. I
said that I had to get back to
work and left his office. Since
then, he is barely speaking to
me. I'm tired of all this drama
and would like your advice
about what to do.
-Sick of Fighting
A. "Dimwit" is my term for
people like your boss who
have little control over their
emotions. Dimwits anger
easily, lash out at others and
create lots of tension in the
office. Working for one of
these emotional powder kegs
can make your life pretty
miserable.
If you plan to stay in this
job, you must immediately
lower your expectations. This


dysfunctional manager is
never going to become the
helpful, supportive boss of
your dreams. You will be
better prepared to manage
the situation if you expect
him to be quick-tempered
and difficult.
Common sense should tell
you to stop criticizing and
correcting him. If you were
locked in a cage with a lion,
would you keep poking it
with a stick? Not if you have
any functioning brain cells.
Criticism will only anger your


boss, who, like the lion, may
retaliate in ways that are
hazardous to your health -
or at least to your work
assignments, performance
review or paycheck.
Since your boss acts like a
kid, you'll have to be the
adult. Do your work, be
pleasant and avoid con-
frontations. Like it or not, he's
in the power position and
you're stuck with him until
one of you changes jobs. So
your challenge is to create a
productive relationship.
Since he is now barely
speaking, you have your first
opportunity to start improv-
ing the situation. Initiate a
friendly conversation about a
topic that is safe and pleas-
ant. In the future, when your
boss gets angry or upset, just
stay in your "adult" mode. If
you don't add fuel to the fire,


Working for a hothead


he's likely to calm down.
Remember that if the
stress becomes too great, you
can always polish up your
resume and seek a calmer
environment. Life is way too
short to be miserable for 40
hours a week.
Q. "Beth," a co-worker,
refuses to consider my ideas.
I'm new here ant can see
many ways to improve things.
Beth has been here for 15.
years and gets very defensive
if I suggest that she could do
her work more efficiently.
How can I get her to listen?
-Frustrated
A. Now wait a minute. Are
you really surprised by Beth's
reaction? Consider her side of
the story: She's performed her
job successfully for 15 years,
then a newcomer arrives and
says she's doing it all wrong.
Based on her own experience,


the old way works just fine, so
why should she listen to you?
After all, she hardly even
knows you.
That probably sounds a bit
harsh, because your inten-
tions are undoubtedly
positive. But unless your
ideas actually get used,
positive intentions don't
count for much, do they? So
you need to consider why
your proposals are not being,
welcomed.-
Could Beth be interpreting
helpful suggestions as
personal criticism? To reduce
defensiveness, select your
words carefully. For example,'
saying "You could do that
much more efficiently"
sounds as though Beth needs
improvement. But saying "I
think that we could make the
billing process more effi-
cient" puts the focus on the


work.
Does Beth feel that you
respect her experience? You
believe she can learn a lot
from you, but you can also
learn from her. Ask questions
about the work, the cus-
tomers or the history of the
business. I guarantee you'll
learn something. If she feels
that you genuinely value her
knowledge, she is more likely
to reciprocate.
Finally, don't hog the.
credit. Credit-grabbers are
universally despised by their
colleagues. When you have
an idea, work with Beth to
develop an implementation
plan, then make a joint
presentation to your boss.
Since you're the newbie, your
manager will probably
assume that you initiated the
change and be impressed by
your collaborative approach.


How can search engines


Search engine optimization
(SEO) and search engine
marketing (SEM) are two
important ways to promote
your business to online
customers. SEO requires
making your site search-
engine-friendly, and SEM
involves targeting potential
customers by purchasing
relevant keyword ads on search
engines such as Google, Yahoo
and Alta Vista.
SEO: There are many ways to
optimize your site so that
search engines will list your
site higher in their rankings.
Start with the following:
Links from other sites:
Search engine spiders move
from site to site across the
Internet by following hyper-
links. The more high-quality
and high-trafficked sites you
have pointing to your site, the
more important the search
engine will think you are. Make
sure to register your site with
directories such as Yahoo
(www.yahoo.com) and the
Open Directory Project

*i. i.* .i ," *> *. ia rii ,f i. -- .iim .aiy, m a a f~ ''" # a-


(www.dmoz.org).
Internal links: Make sure
your site is well-organized and
easy to navigate. A site map
will help visitors and spiders
- navigate your site.
Metatags: Metatags are
hidden HTML directions for
Web browsers or search
engines. They include impor-
tant information such as the
title of each page, relevant
keywords describing site
content and the description of
the site that shows up when a
search engine returns a search.
Make sure your metatags
accurately describe your
content.
Keywords: Consider likely


words or phrases that users
might type into search engines
to find your site. Make sure
your content contains those
words or phrases, and include
them in the title portions of
your site and in relevant
content.
Search engine optimizers:
Businesses often enlist the help
of optimizers who specialize in
improving the visibility of their
clients' sites. Among other
things, they'll register your site
with major search engines, list it
in the appropriate directory,
write optimized content for your
site and recommend changes to
your site architecture.
SEM: The more targeted


Spromo
your advertising, the higher
your "conversion rate."
Conversion rate refers to the
percentage of ads that actually
convert to sales or some other'
desired action (such as
registration). One way to
ensure that your prospective
customers are qualified is to
buy ads according to specific
search engine keywords that a
user might submit. For
example, if you're selling a
Minolta 60X digital camera,
buying the keyword ad
"Minolta 60X digital camera"
will most likely give you better
results than buying the
keyword "camera."
Some terms get bid up
quickly for instance, you'll
pay a lot more for a technology
keyword than a knitting
keyword. SEM, however, has a
higher conversion rate than
other online marketing
methods, so it can still be a
cost-effective route to take.
Make sure you have com-
pelling ad copy luring people
to your site. Provide a call to
