Theaters pass the screen test


Roof gets

OK,

doors open


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Action!
Frank Theaters Galleria on U.S.
41 made its belated grand opening
Wednesday at 1 p.m. with little
hoopla.
The long-awaited theater was
forced to put off its Friday grand
opening because of a delay in get-
ting paperwork to Sarasota County
that would have given the green
light to theater operations.
"They didn't do anything
(wrong)," said Bruce Frank, presi-
dent of Frank Theaters, of the mis-
communication involved in getting
the paperwork filed on time.
"Everyone was just waiting for the
letter vitLh the engineer's specifica-
tions."
Frank said he was happy to get on
with the show.
A grand opening was scheduled
for 5 p.m. Friday, but without a final
engineering report from the con-
tractor on the project, it was put on
h o l d 1 ..
Hundreds of disappointed
movie-goers were turned away
about 10 minutes before the doors
were scheduled to open.
The theaters are a joint project of
Frank Theaters and The Waterford
Companies.
The engineer's report was filed
late Friday, but not in time for coun-
ty officials to review it, certify it and
then provide a certificate of occu-
pancy for the theater.
County building official Paul
Radauskas said he went to the the-
ater on U.S. 41 at Alligator Drive
Monday afternoon and walked the
site with the developer's engineer.

Nicholas Anthony follows the popcorn being held by his grandmother as he heads to the movie.


"We got up on the roof and did
the inspection, and all of the con-
cerns have been resolved," Ra-
dauskas said.
Workers took the weekend to
complete everything .that had con-
cerned Radauskas, Frank said.
The walk-through was not
expected to take place until Wed-
nesday, but Radauskas said the op-
portunity came up to get the issue
resolved Monday.
He issued a temporary certificate
pending the, filing of additional
paperwork.
The temporary certificate allows
the theater to open with no limita-
tions. A formal certificate will be
issued when all of the paperwork is
finalized.


LET'S GO TO THE SHOW
This week's lineup includes: "16 Blocks," "Aquamarine," "Eight Below," -r
"Brokeback Mountain, "Capote, "Transamerica," "Syriana," "Curious George,"'
' Mrs. Henderson Presents,' "Ultraviolet," "Freedomland" and 'Firewall."
Time slots for the movies in the theater will be 1, 4, 7 and 9:30 p.m Admissioin
prices are S8.75 for adults, and $6 for children, seniors and matinees before 6
p.m.
Following several changes, the final decision on the name is Galleria Stadium.11.
It is at 2101 Tamiami Trail, in the Galleria Plaza, which is one-half mile north of
the intersection of U.S. 41 and State Road 776. The plaza is to the rear of the
British Open Pub. For information about movie times. call the theater at 408-
0011.


Disappointed dad
The ,biggest concern before
Monday was the heavy loads put on
the roof with new air conditioners
and gravel.

ford Companies, said the building

ASSISTANT EDITOR

Most area residents shouldn't
need directions for the new movie
theater in South Venice.
You already know where it is. It's
that near-empty parking lot with
darkened store fronts along South
Tamiami Trail you've zipped past a
hundred times on your way to Wal-
Mart or Target.
As of 1 p.m. Tuesday, the ghost-
town days of Galleria Plaza ap-
peared to be over, with the openitig
of Frank Theaters' 11 movie screens.
The shopping plaza has been
without an anchor store for years
after the closing of Kash n' Karry,
Dollar General and then Gold's
Gym.
The neighboring shops followed
suit, with few lasting through the
dark days of cars driving by the
plaza on U.S. 41 while heading
somewhere else.
"It's safe to say, this shopping
center was practically dead," said
Mike Miller, president of Waterford
Companies, the developer that
bought the plaza along the 2070
block of South Tamiami Trail.
Surviving the drought
The owners of the family-owned
Mama NMaria's Pizzaria & Subs, 2085
South Tamiami Trail, have been in
the plaza since 1998 and watched
the buildings slowly crumble.
Miller's company was the first to
actually put money into the plaza
and put up new signs to attract cus-
tomers, according to manager
Ettore DiVito, whose parents own
the restaurant.
Regular customers and delivery
orders carried Mama Maria's
through the lean years.

Habitat announces $1.5

million housing project


The land it's leasing from the city on Knights Trail
will be the site of 16 townhouses to be sold to
low-income families.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Venice Area Habitat. for
Humanity's most ambitious
low-income housing project
ever may not qualify for gov-
ernmental assistance.
City of Venice and local
Habitat officials are in the
final stages of finalizing a
lease for 1 acre of land. on
Knights Trail Road to be the
site of 16 townhouses, which
in turn will be sold to quali-
fied low-income families. The
predicted price tag is at $1.5
million, making this the sin-
gle largest project for Venice
Habitat, according to Exec-
utive Director JudyWilcox.
The governmental assis-
tance appears to end there.
The land lease between the
city and Habitat prevents the
organization from applying
for down-payment assistance
through the Sarasota Office of
Housing and Community
Development, Wilcox said.
In light of that, Habitat will


have to raise more money
than ever in order to create
the "prototype" townhouse
project. Wilcox hopes to cre-
ate similar complexes in
Englewood, North Port arid
the Venice area.
At a meeting tonight (Wed-
nesday), Venice Area Board of
Realtors is expected to com-
mit to raising $85,000 and
become the first corporate
sponsor of the project.
"We're really excited," Wil-
cox said. "(Venice Area Board
of Realtors) has pledged to
raise the money. ... We're go-
ing to be depending on busi-
nesses to help us raise (the
$1.5 million)."
No flipping
There has been plenty of
talk by governmental entities
the past few years about cre-
ating more affordable hous-
ing. Last October, the city
became the first local entity to
actually donate land to

Terrace renters


told to pay-up

From the Feb. 17,1975, Venice Gondolier Sun


STAFF REPORT

Overdue rents among
occupants with jobs as well as
those who are unemployed
have caused the Venice
Housing Authority to crack
down on tenants of the Grove
Terrace housing project.
Six particular tenants, who
were served with eviction
warnings, were singled out by
the authority because, they
have jobs, authority chair-
man William Toole reported
at Thursday morning's ses-


sion. There are more than six
behind in rentals, however,
he told them.
Last month, the authority
reached a maximum of
$1,800 in rents overdue.
However, housing director
Nelson Perry said some resi-
dents had paid back fees, with
more than $1,000 still out-
standing.
Perry told the board mem-
bers there had been a marked
increase in late rentals since
last August, with outstand-
ing rents going higher each

"The project is not a 'do-
good' organization. It must
be run like a business," Toole
said.
Toole cited, as an example,
the problems of the debt-rid-
den Housing Authority of the
city of Sarasota, and feared
the attitudes of the tenants
there were filtering down to
South County tenants.
"I think they're just trying
me to see how far we'll go
with this," Perry told the
board. "If somebody's out of

Toole indicated that in the
past the authority had forced
tenants to pay by turning off
the electricity when they were
too far in arrears. However,
the federal Department of
Housing and Urban Devel-
opment has ruled the proce-
dure is not right and eviction
proceedings are the only
proper action.

Universal flip-flops


on North Port hospital


BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER


What a strange turn of
events.
For two years Universal
Health Services fought for a
North Port hospital. Now
UHS officials say a hospital is
not needed.
In papers filed on Feb. 24,
Robert D. Newell, attorney
for UHS, stated there's no
legal basis for the Agency for
Health Care Administration
to reject an administrative
judge's recommendation to
deny Health Management
Associates permission to
open a hospital in North
Port.
Initially, only UHS applied
for a certificate of need, for a
120-bed hospital at the corner
of Toledo Blade and Price
boulevards. North Port Com-
missioners unanimously vot-
ed to support UHS as the
city's hospital provider.
However, before the dead-
line, HMA of Florida applied
and was preliminarily grant-
ed a certificate of need for a
North Port hospital. It was
challenged by UHS and, after
a hearing, Division of Ad-
-ministrative Hearings Judge
T. Kent Wetherell II wrote in
a Dec. 1, 2005, recommended
order that "population figures


did not justify a hospital in
North Port."
He also ruled that AHCA
had identified no beds needed
in the entire area, including
North Port. ,
"We were snookered in
this whole thing," North Port
Commissioner Dick Lockhart
said.
Lockhart said it looked to
him that UHS has taken a
180-degree turn.
Sarasota developer Frank
Menke, UHS and more than
22,000 North Port residents
who wrote letters, worked
hard to convince the state
that a hospital was needed in
the city .
"What a shame," Lockhart
said. "I feel ashamed saying
all those positive things. Now
it may turn out to have been
a big waste of time."
Told you so
Commission Chair Rue
Berryman said he feels
"horrible."
"We wanted them in the
city Now that won't be possi-
ble," Berryman said.
"We've always said the city
should have backed getting a
hospital, and not back just
one provider," said Joshua
Putter, divisional vice presi-
dent of HMA.
Geoffrey Smith, attorney


for HMA, claims Wetherell
erred in his conclusion of law
that no new hospital was
needed in North Port.
Smith said Wetherell has
to consider other reasons
besides the "numerical need"
to decide the need for a hos-
pital.
"The findings of facts as
determined by (Wetherell) are
not being challenged," Smith
said. "The conclusion of law
reached (is being) challenged
as not reasonable in light of
the very facts established by
Judge Wetherell's order."
According to AHCA
spokesman Toby Philpot, for
HMA to get a favorable rul-
ing it must prove the judge's
findings are not based on
competent, substantial evi-
dence.
AHCA will now decide
whether to accept or reject
Wetherell's decision. A final
order that rules on the ex-
ceptions to Wetherell's rec-
ommended order will go to
ACHA Secretary Alan Levine,
Philpot said.
"Only the agency head can
sign a final order," he said.
Philpot said a decision
may be made soon.

Not all county roads are created equal.


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER
Roads can serve as links
between a business corridor
and a residential neighbor-
hood, or they can be limited-
access roads that speed up
traffic.
Miles of asphalt serve as
conduits for water and sewer
lines, phone lines, gas lines,
power lines and cable lines.
"They are not just a huge
impervious surface which
moves traffic and allows ac-
cess," Sarasota County Ad-
ministrator Jim Ley said.
They also often have side-
walks and bike lanes. Some
have street lights, and nearly
all cross streets and other
streets have traffic signals.
There are also the speed-limit
signs and other caution signs
for curves, bird crossings and
regular streets signs.
All of this must be coordi-
nated for ease of construc-
tion.

Charlotte County Public

said some projects, such as
,the Coral Creek Bridge re-

because of permitting prob-
lems.
Other roads, such as the
Burnt Store Road widening to
four lanes, could see work
start in 2007, four years ahead
of schedule.
Ley said permitting and
regulations invariably slow
down the building process.
"You could never build the

The shortage of skilled
labor and road-building ma-
terials have more than dou-
bled the costs of nearly every
project in recent years.
O'Kane cites the recent
spate of hurricanes as a direct
influence on road construc-
tion.
Labor is thinned out and
materials are being used to
replace homes and infra-
structure on the Gulf Coast.
"We have to compete for all
of that," O'Kane said. "It is not
getting any easier."
The challenges to building
roads is getting more difficult
as each project is conceived,
Ley said.
"That is why we work to get
projects done as quickly and
as efficiently as possible," he
added.
He has directed the public
works staff to be open with all
land owners who are affected.
I "When you say it's going to
be done, it's going to be
done," Ley said.
O'Kane said he has worked
diligently to usher road pro-
jects along as fast as possible.

Analyze this: Next Generation Learning


Sarasota County's NeXt Generation Learning
strategic plan is a well-designed "roadmap
to the future," say authors of an outside analysis,
but the district needs to do a better job
of communicating its intentions.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Sarasota County School
District finally received its
long-awaited outside ap-
praisal of the proposed NeXt
Generation Learning plan -
and the news was good.
"The NeXt Generation
Learning strategic plan stands
up to close examination and
critical analysis," states the
report by Mid-continent
Research for Education and
Learning, a regional learning
lab sponsored by the U.S.
Department of Education.
Superintendent Gary Nor-
ris said McREL's report in-
cludes valuable recommen-
dations to improve the plan.
School board members will
evaluate McREL's recom-
mendations at a workshop
today (Wednesday).
McREL was hired by the
school board to conduct the
study back in
December to
advise the dis-
trict on the
viability of its

.tential imped-
: iments. Its

by The Edu-
cation Partnership, which in-
cludes the Community Foun-
dation of Sarasota County,
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice, and
the William G. and Marie


FPt v


Selby Foundation.
"The strategic plan takes a
major step in providing a
detailed framework toward
achieving the vision. (Our)
conclusion is that through
communication, commit-
ment, and
coherence,
and with a
systemic and
systematic .
effort the dis- ,.g-.
trict's vision
can be real-
ized," states
McREL.
Norris said Norris
the analysis
reaffirmed the plan is com-
prehensive and expenditures
are reasonable.
"In successful districts, the
vision focuses on helping all
student succeed ... there is a
comprehensive framework
that identifies components
of the system that support
learning and provide a road-
map for staff ... Sarasota's
plan rates well on this criteri-
on for district success," states
the report.
School board president
Carol Todd said she was
pleased with McREL's find-
ings.
"It's always valuable to the
district for an outside organ-
ization to come in with a
clear lens and provide con-
structive recommendations,"
Todd said.
"Now, it's incumbent up-
on the board to work closely

Reasonable costs?
McREL authors called the
plan's expenditures reason-
able. The report acknowl-
edged some components of
the plan are high-cost items,
like increasing the length of
the school day by 30 minutes
and reducing students-teach-
er ratios, but said they "hold
the potential of even greater
impact on student achieve-'
ment."
Funding for NeXt Gener-
ation Learning is contingent
upon passage of the 2006
Referendum. Voters will head
to the poJling booths on
March 14 to decide whether
to continue the 1-mill eduica-

McREL said communica-

accomplishing the strategic
plan. McREL reported there

the district's strategic plan,
but noted interviews with
school, employees "mention-,

staff at the district level to
provide the support that
schools need to implement

"In order to support the

A recurring theme among
principals, teachers and
school staff interviewed was
the need for continuing dia-

The point, reported inter-

Miller said Monday it was a
relief to have the theater
opening after a rush to get
things completed.
Radauskas allowed an invi-
tation-only reception and
screening at the theaters
Thursday evening to go for-
ward, he said, because it was
a controlled situation. Guests
at the screening noted ceiling
tiles were being installed and
carpeting laid less than 24
hours before the scheduled
grand opening.
While many were disap-
pointed by the delay in open-
ing, theater staff took care of,
some of the people who were
there by giving them passes,
Frank said.
"For Frank Theaters the
goal is always to exceed our
expectations, and the most
disappointed person was my
dad, who has been in this
business for many years,"
Frank said. "Unfortunately,
the momentum can be lost.
But when people see this
place, they will love it and
won't, remember what hap-


opened a week ago."
The new auditoriums have
curved, panoramic, wall-to-
wall screens complemented
with Dolby digital, surround-
sound systems. New-style,
24-inch, high-back rocker
seats, with flip-up, cup-hold-
er armrests also await movie-
goers.
Venice has been without
movie theaters since Sep-
tember 2004, when the
Venetian 6 closed to make
way for a Lowe's home
improvement store.
The Frank Theaters Gal-
leria project was announced
last year with a possible open-
ing around the holidays, but
other issues, including handi-
cap accessibility, pushed the
date back.
March 3 was announced
last month as a firm opening
date.
The theater will employ
around 35 people.

Two more are under con-

CASI/SACS report states,
"special consideration needs
to be given to Venice High
School to bring all facilities
into the 21st Century so that
optimum learning can be
achieved."
"We did expect that and
are aware of the school's lim-

said. "Superintendent Norris
has made this a priority and is
addressing the situation.. We
anticipate we will, have! at
least some of the issues
involving the science labs
resolved this fall."
School leaders were initial-
ly concerned that the school's
deteriorating facilities could,
again, be grounds for placing
the school on probation, but
that didn't happen.


The report did cite "woe-
fully inadequate" science lab-
oratory facilities, a vermin
problem and the need to
upgrade vocational/technical
program facilities to support
academic programs and
technological advances.
It made the following rec-
ommendations to improve
campus facilities: Eliminate
the health hazard by address-

upgrade vo-tech facilities;
and update science labs
(specifically gas, water, elec-

properly conduct experi-

The report also reaffirmed


Venice High's effort to boost
reading scores through pro-
grams like the pilot reading
program, Read 180, especially
for the school's lowest level
readers.
"Though VHS appears to
understand its mission of
educating all students, the
need to focus more specifical-
ly on those students who con-
sistently score in Level 1 and
Level 2 is evident," states the
report.
Retool counseling
The report calls for the
reorganization of the school's
Student Services and
Guidance Department. Citing
scheduling and other prob-
lems, the report states the
department "must be reorga-
nized, to i ensure:; effective
communication., with. all
stakeholders, and to ensure
that it functions as an entity
within the total school com-
munity, and to provide for
academic counseling of all
students."

State Road 776 corridor study proceeds


BY GAVIN OFF
ASSISTANT ENGLEWOOD EDITOR


The Corridor Advocacy
'Group for State Road 776 is
.finalizing the project's letter
of intent, outlining the basis
for obtaining a heritage high-
way designation.
* The group decided to pur-
sue the heritage designation
- in part because of the
area's history even though
the road will be listed as a
Florida Scenic Highway.


The route will run through
both Charlotte and Sarasota
counties and include State
Road 776, Gasparilla Road,
Placida Road and Old Eng-
lewood Road.
'Scenic' is what you're
viewing when you're driving,"
said group member Claudia
Ridge. "It's going to be the
'heritage' part of it to get our
funds."
According to the Florida
Department of Transpor-
tation, the Scenic Highway


Program is designed to in-
crease awareness of "histori-
cal and intrinsic resources -
cultural, historical, archeo-
logical, recreational, natural
and scenic -, which collec-
tively enhance the overall
traveling experience."
Once the designation is
awarded, it will open the road
for road improvement grants
and funding.
Behind schedule
The letter of intent will


highlight special aspects of
. the route, including state
parks in the area, natural
areas like Lemon Bay and
Gottfried Creek and animal
life.
"(State Road) 776, along
with the loop roads in
Sarasota and Charlotte coun-
ties, provides a rich array of
intrinsic scenic, natural, his-
toric, cultural and recreation-
al intrinsic resources," the let-
ter stated.
Attractions include the


Tringali Recreational Center,
Lemon Bay, Ainger Creek
Park, Coral Creek Fishing Pier
and El Jobean Fishing Pier,
among others.
But Kathryn Ortega, a con-
sultant for the project, said
the group was months be-
hind schedule. The letter of
Intent, she said, should have
been completed a while ago.
"We cannot keep going to
meetings and meet here
when nothing is done," said
Manon Lavoie, with the


Florida Department of Trans-
portation. "It's a problem."
The advocacy group will
next meet at 9 a.m. March 17
at Lemon Bay Park in Engle-
wood. The meeting is open to
the public.
It's also planning a public
hearing for 6 p.m. March 13 at
Tringali Park on North Access
Road.
For more information on
the advocacy group, call Sara-
sota County at 861-5325 or
Charlotte County at 743-1949.

OUR VIEW




County knows traffic safety is no accident


Sarasota County officials are determined
to make the roads under their control as
safe as any in the United States. The goal
is to reduce crashes, save lives, protect peo-
ple from injuries and reduce damage to vehi-
cles.
To that end, the county installed the rec-
ommended 12-inch lenses on all stop lights
long ago. The lenses have LED lights behind
them so red and green can be more easily
seen when a driver is driving toward the ris-
ing or setting sun.
All lanes, including those where people
make turns, have stripes painted on the
asphalt to help guide motorists.
Signals at intersections are timed and con-
trolled by a computer run by an engineer at
the Public Works center who specializes in
that job.
Signals are changed automatically,


depending on the time of day. The engineer
can modify timing whenever warranted --
for example, when a storm is approaching.
To give motorists time to clear intersec-
tions, in addition to yellow lights the county
provides, a two-second period when stop-
lights are red in all directions after lights
change.
Now the county is installing sensors that-
can identify the number of cars on each road
at an intersection sensors that can auto-
matically adjust traffic signals in nanosec-
onds, depending on how may cars are
approaching crossroads in either direction.
School zones, where speeds limits are
reduced to 15 mph, are marked with yellow
flashing lights whenever children are on the
sidewalks or street.
Large, internally lighted street signs make
it easy to see where.to go after dark.

'Sarasota voters


approve referendum'

ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST


"Sarasota County's voters
will approve the school
board's request to continue
the 1-mill tax for four years,
,assuring the continuing high
quality of our schools."
I wish, like Joe Namath of
the New York Jets, I could
"guarantee" victory. Namath
predicted his team would win
the Super Bowl and in fact
guaranteed victory over the
seemingly vastly superior
Baltimore Colts.
His deeds matched his
words. I, however, have once
in a great while been wrong
about something but not
this time (I hope).
While I can't guarantee vic-
tory, I believe Sarasota's voters
will approve the. school sup-
port for two reasons: first,
because they have demon-
stiated their deep commit-
ment to this community and
its future, through passing the
now-expiring levy and
through such actions as com-
mitting new taxes to buy
lands and-preserve them for
future generations; and sec-
ond, because they know it is
the right thing to do.
We have a population that
values education. Many peo-
ple who now live here had the
advantages of good schools.
They come from states in the
Midwest where they had
good schools and great Big
Ten universities schools
that have turned out many
science and business leaders
of our nation.
A growing number come
from New England, New York
and nearby states, places
where schools receive high
support from their voters and
turn out excellent students.
Native Floridians, too, have
benefited from Sarasota's
schools, which are among the
very best in the state.
As they look to the future,
they want the children of this
area to be able to compete
with the children from other
nations in Asia and Europe.
They know that competition
for jobs and economic suc-
cess will demand more profi-
ciency of our students in the
new global economy.
Can we survive
on state funding?
If we don't pass this initia-
tive, we will have to depend
on Florida to support our


schools.
How does Florida do? Only
eight states do less 42
states provide higher support
to education than Florida
does.
What a colossal failure in
political leadership it is that
this fine, wealthy, very blessed
state is at the bottom of the
pile in the United States.
Every child in Florida has
$1,569 less each year to sup-
port his or her education than
the average child in the Unit-
ed States. That is not $1,569
less than the best states it is
$1,569 less than the average.
Thanks to the current 1-
mill assessment, Sarasota lags
the national average by only
$1,000. For those ill-informed
persons who talk about too
much money, let them read
these figures.
Do we spend too much
on administration?
Sarasota is in the lowest 10
percent in the state in admin-
istrative costs.
Let's put it, another way.
More than 90 percent of Flor-
ida's school districts spend a
higher percentage on admin-
istration and non-classroom
expenses.
Outside auditors and rat-
ing ,services have praised the
schools for sound manage-
ment- Further, the schools
have administered the previ-
ous 1 mill well, spending the
money exactly as promised,
including adding 475 new
teachers, guidance coun-
selors and other persons
directly involved in providing
services to children,
What if the
extension fails?
The district will have to cut
about $45 million in 2006-
2007. That is about 12 percent
of its budget and will require
reducing instructional per-
sonnel, cutting teacher sal-
aries about 15 percent and
increasing class sizes in all
areas but the core subjects
such as reading and math.
All other instruction will
suffer and some very impor-
tant areas, such as technolo-
gy, technical education and
desirable electives, will be
reduced. The emphasis on'
practical, job-oriented educa-
tion is a major priority for the
funds when approved.
Programs important to
children and their parents,
music, art and physical edu-
cation will also be cut.
Sarasota's education will
be headed to the Florida level,
toward the bottom of the bar-
rel.
I don't think it will happen.
I think that while the "nay-
sayers" and "know-nothings"
seem noisier this time, the
people of Sarasota County

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Has school district done its homework?


Editor:
The pro-millage campaign is long on hype and short on
substantive information. I would like the following questions
answered.
What do statistics show on test scores and drop-out rates in
the past four years while large infusions of cash were given the
Sarasota school district?
What successful school districts in other states have been
studied and what specific changes will the Sarasota school dis-
trict implement as a result?
What qualifications do the consultants have who are train-
ing the Sarasota school district teachers and how many years
actual teaching experience during the past 10 years does each
of them have?
What other sources of training will be implemented?
Have teacher focus groups been held? Have Sarasota teach-
ers been asked to suggest improvements to the district? If not,
why not?
When the textbook company I worked for brought out a
new text, we did innumerable teacher focus groups and
obtained valuable information. We would also send one per-
son per region to an educational seminar and that person then
gave in-house training sessions. It saved a lot of money.
The points I would like to make? "Top down" management
is not always effective, and there are many ways the Sarasota
school district could save money, not least to require all admin-
istrators to get down in the trenches and give one course a year.
After all, if coaches can teach U.S. history, which is done in
many, many school districts, paper pushers must be good for
something.

The captain is
not the ship

Editor:
Many people seem to con-
fuse criticism of the president
and his policies with criticism
of our. country.
* A country is basically de-
fined by its constitution and
laws, and based on these,
there is no better country in
the world than the United
States.
A country, however, is
somewhat like a ship, whose
captain and officers are sub-
ject to change. The most sea-
worthy of ships can be put on
the rocks by an incompetent
'captain. The best country can
likewise be brought to ruin by
an incompetent president
and administration.
Criticism of those who are

running this country is quite
different from criticizing
America. To do so ,is, in fact,
exercising one of the rights
with which we are blessed as
Americans.

Vote'No' to
send a message
Editor:
The only way we will get
efficiency or control of gov-
ernment is to reject increases
in taxation.
The county school board's
special referendum should be
defeated if for no other rea-
son than to send a message:
that constantly increasing
real estate taxes must be con-
tained and that promises of
"temporary millage increas-
es" be kept.
Despite enormous rev-
enue increases from new res-
idences and businesses,
property taxes increase every
year. In addition, taxing au-
thorities continue to approve
heavy utility and insurance
rates.
Our taxing authorities
need to realize where their
money, comes from basi-
cally retirees who moved
here to escape high-rises,
dense population, gridlock,
and pollution in order to
enjoy a clean, healthy envi-
ronment.
What we now see is what
we expected to avoid. Greed
is taking all of the above away
from everyone living here.
Wise up and fight back.

Get rid of deadwood
Editor:
I have read and talked with
people about Grove Terrace. I
absolutely believe the units
there should be clean and
habitable.
However, I have read and
heard that some families have
lived there for 10 or more
years; one family moved in
the day Grove Terrace opened


and is still there. How could
this be?
I lived with my mom, dad
and sister in low-income
housing in Massachusetts. We
lived there almost five years.
In this time, my parents
worked hard, saved money
and bought a house.
These folks in Grove Ter-
race want the world handed
to them. Why would anyone
live there all these years and
not try to improve their situa-
tion?
I am not rich. I live pay-
check to paycheck, but I
manage to rent a house in
South Venice and have a
decent car to get around in.
I could probably live in
Grove Terrace, too, with my
income, but wouldn't even
think of it. I'm doing OK and
don't expect anyone to take
care of me.
Once Grove Terrace is
rebuilt, there need to be time
limits for how long you're
allowed to live there and rules
for paying rent on time,
maintaining common areas,
parking lots, etc. If these peo-
ple are not motivated to
improve their situation, noth-
ing will happen.
I had friends staying at the
Motel 6 next door to Grove
Terrace recently. Their rooms
were in the back. All evening
cars kept pulling up. A man
would jump over the fence
from Grove Terrace and
money would change hands

*Why is this tolerated?
Whoever is allowing this guy
to live with them at Grove
Terrace needs to be evicted
now. No more excuses, "I did-
n't know" bull.

cently stated in the Gondolier

Prisons are overcrowded.
Fire and police departments
are in need of more money,

Aging school buildings are in
need of replacement and
they, too, are so overcrowded
that outbuildings have had to
be constructed. There is a
severe shortage of qualified
school teachers.
State, county and local
governments are desperately
trying to buy land to protect
the environment, but due to
the high cost of that dimin-
ishing resource, they often do
not have the money to do it.
Property taxes and insurance
(ifyou can get it) rates are sky-
rocketing.
The list just doesn't end.
What is the solution to all
of this? Why not get city coun-
cil to take a shot at changing
the city charter to allow for
growth control, and if some-
one makes such a motion and
it fails, vote out of office those
who did not support it.
Demand that your local
state representatives and sen-
ators put forth a bill in the
state house to enact enforce-
able growth control ordi-
nances. If they won't agree to
do that, vote them out of
office and elect others who
will take a pledge to create
such a bill or bills.
Surely there are other
means to the end. Be creative
and find those means and let
the rest of us know of your
ideas.

mental Issues and Transportation (EDGIT) Committee, are making the

Greater Sarasota Chamber and the Economic Development Corpora-
tion of Sarasota County.


Annually this trip provides our Chamber members the opportunity to
present first hand our local priorities and hear directly from policy mak-
ers what can be done to help our local businesses grow and succeed.
"Its exciting to be part of this years delegation. For 25 years, Chamber
members have personally financed their involvement to participate in
this. It just shows you how important the Chamber's mission is to our
members," stated,Board Chair Lehner.

Meetings have been scheduled on the afternoon of March 13 with Senator
Lisa Carlton and Lisa Miller, Chief of Staff for CFO Tom Gallagher. On
March 14, a full day's agenda begins with a briefing with the Florida
Chamber. This meeting will update the participants on the status of key
issues. Our Chamber delegation then heads to the Capitol Building for

priorities), the Florida Department of Transportation (US 41 Bypass, I-
75), the Office of Workforce Innovation (workforce housing needs), the

surance (affordable healthcare, property/windstorm) and the Department
of Education (MCC/USF funding).

The Chamber EDGIT Committee oversees this trip and also plans the
Chamber annual Governmental Issues Forum, scheduled for July 13,
and our annual Hob Nob set for August 31 this year. The committee
meets the 4th Friday of each month at 8:00 a.m. Contact John Ryan at

Richard's Abby Carpet Warehouse has been a loyal Chamber member since
1974. The deluge of nomination forms were sent by a variety of Chamber businesses,
independent contractors, and many pleased local and area residents. A sampling of
comments:
Chamber Business: Richard's Abby has been a subcontractor of mine for 8
years. I appreciate the quality of professionalism they perform for my customers.
When I send my customers to their store to research their products, their encounters
are helpful, pleasant and very satisfying." Chamber Accommodation: I can' not
elaborate enough about Richard's Abby, our carpets were installed promptly in a time
sensitive manner to meet a very narrow time frame. The installers were very
professional and the work was first class." What area residents said: They are a
most congenial, considerate and trust worthy flooring company, we used them for
five separate projects and the positive experiences have been truly satisfying." And
finally," From our first visit to select flooring for our home to the final installation, the
experience was very enjoyable and professional."
In summary, time and again words of fully satisfied, friendly staff, clean and
professional installers, 'knowledgeable, prompt, fair pricing, good quality and thoughtful
follow up service were repeated in the numerous letters.

providing us with four generations of opportunity.
Fifty-eight years ago Harry H. and Eleanor
Britton opened a small furniture showroom in the
Gulf Breeze Hotel, which was located at the site of
the present Venice Post Office. Sons, Ronald and
Pete Britton moved down a short time later to help
their parents as Venice began to grow. With the
growth of Venice, Britton's began a tradition of
quality, service and value.
As Ron Britton's sons came of age, they also
took an interest in the family business. Todd and
John Britton both worked in the business
delivering furniture, installing carpet, and selling,
giving them valuable knowledge from the ground
floor up.
Todd's daughter Carrie is the fourth generation
to join the Britton's Staff.
Never forgetting the important lessons of quality,
service and value, Todd and Carrie Britton are
working hard to keep Britton's your # 1 shopping
experience for all your interior home needs.

out to an average of 15 runs
per game for and two runs

ing an incredible run under
Darrell Brandow. His teams
have only lost one game a
year. This is his fourth sea-
son as coach.
Brandow is being assisted
by Ralph Ellingsen this year.
The .team's batting average
through nine games was
.468. The on base percentage
was .646. The leading hitters
were Stephanie Sullivan at
.682, Becca Juntunen at .667,

beach ball.

slugger and Western Carolina
University sophomore had
two home runs and four RBIs
Friday in the Catamounts'
loss at Charleston Southern.
He was hit on the right
hand on a pitch late in the

terror had to sit out Saturday
and Sunday's games.
On the season, Straus-
baugh leads WCU in batting
average at .400 (10-for-25),
home runs with six and RBIs

times you'd sit around twid-
dling your thumbs," DiVito
said. "If you didn't know we
were here, you'd be past with-
out even seeing us. ... There
wasn't a whole lot here."
Golden days appear
around the corner for the
family business. The restau-
rant is expanding to nearly
double its size, and hopes to
complete the renovations by
thd end of April.
Any doubts about the
expansion were resolved last

supposed to open. The
restaurant's wait time was
running up to 90 minutes
because of all the walk-up
business.
Bill Kinney, general man-.
ager for Frankifheaters, said
he's witnessed revitalizations
time and time again after
opening a new theater.
An empty shopping center
is transformed to a destina-
tion spot.


"In the summertime,
with no walk-in traffic,
there'd be times you'd
sit around twiddling
your thumbs.... There


wasn't
here."

'A movie theater is just a
natural draw," Kinney said.
"It's all about entertainment.
...It's about fun."
Envisioning the future
Many of the Galleria store-
fronts remain vacant, but
Miller hopes to soon reverse
that. He envisions additional
restaurants, ice cream shops,
a video arcade and an indoor
golf center as rounding out

Miller hopes to develop 18

"Man of La Mancha" con-
tinues to enthrall audiences at
The Players Theatre, 838
North Tamiami Trail, Sara-
sota, through March 12. Gon-
dolier Sun reviewer Jan
Findley had nothing but good
things to say about this pro-
duction, from Jeff Dillon's
directing to the work of every-
one in the cast. Each rose to
the occasion.
The show that introduced
the world to the hit song, "The
Impossible Dream," was the
smash of the 1965 Broadway
season. The story begins in a
Spanish prison where Miguel
de Cervantes awaits his trial
before the Spanish Inqui-
sition. Finding himself at the
mercy of his fellow inmates
and forced to appear before
"the governor," Cervantes acts
out his incomplete novel
"Don Quixote." All are deeply
moved by his tale and the
story concludes with the in-
spiring Impossible Dream."
Tickets are $21 for adults
and $11 for students. There
will be a matinee at 2 p.m. on
March 12. For tickets and
information, call the box
office daily between 10 a.m.
and 4 p.m. and Saturday from
10 a.m.- 1 p.m. at 365-2494.
Evening performances are at
8 p.m.
****** *
The Venice acting group,
Onstage!, will perform "The
Music of Bobby Darin" at the
Cultural Center of Charlotte
County on March 11 at 2 and
7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 per
person and can be obtained
by calling (941) 625-4175, Ext.
220. Onstage! is a trio: Robin
Mazey, Mona MacLean, and
John Mackay. The three are
household names from Punta
Gorda to Sarasota, where they
have appeared on numerous
stages.
Darin was a major star of
the '60s and '70s with hits
from the early rock era that
include "Dream Lover,"
"Splish, Splash" and "Beyond
the Sea." He sang all the
music of that era, putting his
own stamp on such hits as
"Mack the Knife" and "I
Found a Million Dollar Baby"
and others. He also sang
Broadway show tunes and
songs from films of the day.

If you are looking for some-
thing to. do in the daytime,
how about an amphibious
experience? The newest tour
in town is Just Ducky Tours,
which was featured in the
Venice Gondolier Sun Let's Go
section some weeks back.
Passengers enjoy a ride over
the Hatchett Creek Bridge
and then through town along
Venice Avenue and north
along the Esplanade and
Tarpon Center Drive to Higel
Park, where the vehicle drives
into the water next to the
Venice Yacht Club. The rest of
the trip is a sightseeing cruise
on the Intracoastal Waterway,
out toward the jetty and then
east to the boat ramp at the
Venice Train Depot where
startled boaters and others
watch in amazement as you

Garden club hosts 17th annual



home tour


SUN PHOTOS BY KIM COOL


A circular drive and side-opening garage are features of this home at Calusa Lakes.


BYKIMCOOL
FEATURES EDITOR

If there is a common
thread to this year's annual
Venice Area garden Club
home tour, it must be the
kitchen.
All five houses are newer
homes, built in the popular
Mediterranean theme style
currently so popular all over
Florida. Some have side-fac-
ing garages, some have street-
facing garages. They vary fur-
ther in size and layout but
each has a decidedly cook-
friendly kitchen.
With copper pots gleaming
and granite polished to a fare-
thee-well, the five houses will
be on view Friday and
Saturday, March 10 and 11.
Located as far north as
Calusa Lakes off Mission
Valley Boulevard in Nokomis
and as far south as in the
Venetia community south of
Venice, the homes will pro-
vide tour-goers a look at a
good representative sampling
of area new homes as well as
area communities, some
gated and some not.


The homes
1. William and tnez
Tomlinson, 2181 Calusa
Lakes Blvd., Calusa Lakes'
subdivision, Nokomis.
The Tomlinson home is
dark gray and set off by a cir-
cular paver driveway. French
doors welcome visitors into a
great room area with a spec-
tacular view of the home's
lanai, pool cage and dhe
,Calusa Lakes golf course
behind the house.
Commissioned paintings by
artist Trevor Swanson com-
plement the African wildlife
theme used in the home's
decor, especially in the living
areas, but not in the "Out of
Africa" into baroque Italy din-
ing room. Soothing green
shades and plantation shut-
ters in the master bedroom
could just as easily be found
in the master bedroom of a
gamekeeper's home on the
Serengeti. Part of the master
suite is a Roman bath with
two showers, central bathtub
framed by pillars and sepa-
rate vanity areas.
Cooks and those who like
to entertain in their kitchens
will appreciate the spacious


A charming garden to the side of the entrance sets off this
home in Bellagio.


space that is fitted with
imported Italian cabinets and
both tan and black granite
countertops. Glass blocks
above the stove add light to
the room, which also con-
tains a baker's rack and family
memorabilia to give it a
homey touch.
Working in this home is as
much fun as it can be. A plas-
ma TV in the laundry room
helps to lighten that chore.
Be sure to allow some extra
time at this home in order to
check out the garden club's
annual boutique sale and to
purchase tickets for the club's
jewelry raffle.
2. Jack and Carol Butler,
1038 Tuscany Blvd., off
Hatchett Creek Boulevard,
Venice (north entrance to
Pelican Pointe Golf & Country
Club).
Beveled glass doors lead
into the home from a laven-
der paver-style driveway that
leads to a side-opening three-
and-one-half-car garage.
Shades of lavender continue
throughout the home, which
was landscaped by the own-
ers, longtime professional
landscapers.


A decorative tray ceiling
and designer fan plus re-
cessed lighting 'and crown
molding frame the great
room. Hand-picked Ha-
waiian flowers dipped in 24-
carat gold provide a decora-
tive touch to this room, which
has a view of the pool and its
fountain wall, one of the
Pelican Pointe lakes and a
section of the club's golf
course.
There is a second waterfall
in a niche iear the kitchen.
Chinoiserie, family an-
tiques and many built-in dec-
orative touches are backed up
with the ubiquitous lavender.
With two master suites, the
home easily accommodates
the Butlers and their parents.
The spacious garage hous-
es a 1956 white Thunderbird
and, in the comer, a man's
paradise equipped with every
appliance the man of this or
most any other house could
want.
Visitors are invited to stroll
around outside to enjoy the
home's landscaping.
3. Dr. Ken and Chris
Pfahler, 919 Chickadee Drive,
Pelican Pointe (use main


entrance to Pelican Pointe
from Center Road, east of U.S.
41) .
Royal palms frame the
mini courtyard-like entrance
with its French doors leading
into a foyer that seems even
grander because of its soaring
20-foot ceilings, formal col-
umns, matching mirrors,
tables and marble floor.
Technology rules in this
house.
Fiber-optic lighting en-
hances the wall above the
fireplace/entertainment area
of the great room. Another
focal point of the space is the
shelves containing the fami-
ly's collection of art glass.
Custom lighting illuminates
special works.
In the dining room there is
another collection 2,200
bottles of wine in a wine cel-
lar, which maintains a con-
stant 55 degrees. A large din-
ing table facilitates large tast-
ing parties or other entertain-
ing. Overflow guests can be
accommodated in the spa-
cious family room off the

Read-A-Thon needs volunteers


The second Englewood Art Center's Guest
Speakers program, co-hosted with the Sun-
coast Writers Guild, presented Jack and
Marcia Kelly, artists in residence at the
Hermitage Artist Retreat. Marcia is the writer,
Jack the photographer of their books. More
than 50 audience members were regaled
with tales of the Kelly's meeting and staying
in a variety of monasteries and abbeys.
Their experiences ranged from monastic resi-
dences of Roman Catholic, Russian Orthodox,
Sufi and Buddhist affiliations, just to name a
few. In some cases this meant taking a vow
of silence, or changing eating habits.
Marcia briefly spoke about the process of
writing and publishing; Jack led the audience
through a series of slides of the many sanctu-
aries they visited.
The Englewood Art Center will be hosting
sculptor, Sean Colson March 26 at 3 p.m. He
will speak on sculpting with lost wax and
bronze casting.

Pine View student a finalist in nationwide contest


SUN PHOTO BY GREG GILES
Joshua Simon stands with his mother Amanda Simon, a
teacher at Pine View, and school principal Steve Largo. Joshua
was named a finalist in a nationwide contest for a picture book
of life at the family cabin. Joshua made the book as a
Christmas gift for his father, Don Simon.


STAFF REPORT

Pine View School fourth-
grader Joshua Simon has
been named a finalist in the
Coldwell Banker, My Home:
The American Dream con-
test.
Executed in conjunction
with Scholastic Professional
Magazines' Custom Media
Group, this nationwide com-
petition asked students kin-
dergarten through eighth-
grade to explain through
images or words how they


make their houses homes.
Nine-year-old Simon's en-
try was a photo essay of a
cabin in the Adirondacks
where he and his family go
boating, share meals and
spend family time together.
In recognition of being
chosen as a finalist, Simon
was awarded $100.
"Joshua's entry was both
creative and passionate in
describing what he thinks
makes a house a home," said
Sue Jordan, managing broker
for Coldwell Banker Resi-


dential Real Estate's Palmer
Ranch office. "The clear mes-
sage was, of course, the love,
togetherness and support of a
family."
Entries were judged based
on creativity, originality, over-
all quality and effort.
Grand prize winners were
announced Jan. 30. /
Below are excerpts from
the book Joshua wrote and
depicted in photographs as a
Christmas gift for his father,
Don Simon.' Joshua, who
drew the book's cover (a view
from the family summer
cabin on Lake Woodhull in
Upstate New York) made two
duplicate books, one to sub-
mit to the Coldwell Banker
contest and one for his father
to keep.

"Dad's Dream"
No TV? No video games? No
telephone No electricity? Not
even a flushing toilet? And
this is your idea of a home?

By Joshua Simon

TIis is exactly my idea of
home! Every summer my
family calls this place home
for nearly three months. We
share this home with deer,
bears, fish, chipmunks, loons,
geese, beavers, muskrats,
hawks,. rabbits, and even
moose.
It all started with my
grandfather. His dad died in
the; influenza epidemic of


1919. At age 7, it left my
grandfather without his dad.
He was friends with another
little boy, and that boy's father
sort of adopted my grandfa-
ther. This man would take his
son and my granddad camp-
ing on a lake in the Adiron-
dack Mountains of Upstate
NewYork.

Dad's dream cabin on Lake
Woodhull:in Upstate New
York..

As my granddad grew up,
he came to love the woods
and the spot where he'd
camped as a boy. He contin-
ued going there. When he was
dating my grandma, he even
took her there.
Once they were married,
they rented a place on the
lake to visit once a year. One
day, as they were riding in the
boat, they noticed a "for sale"
sign in the front yard of a


cabin.
My grandparents had
saved $2,000 in war bonds.
They made an offer on this .
place for their war bonds,. and
it was accepted. That was the
year my dad was born, 1945.
My grandpa worked in a
mill, and every year it closed
down for two weeks in July.
He would take his family to
the cabin.
My dad grew up in these
woods, learning all about the
importance of protecting our
world and its natural won-
ders. He fell in love with the
Adirondacks and enjoyed
being at their cabin.
I have fallen in love with it,
too. Our cabin is on a three-
mile lake with only eleven
other places ... and you' can
only get there by boat!
Each summer we spend
time as a family nestled in this
mountain cabin we call
home. My mom and dad have
worked hard to make sure
their only responsibilities,
over the summer are us.
Every evening after dinner,
rain or shine, we go fishing. I
fish as well as anyone with all
of the things my dad has
taught me.
We also have to work hard
as a family when we are at our
cabin. I fetch water from the
well. We even chop wood.
Each night when we return
from fishing, we either play
cards or board games. We also
make s'mores and read a

and pancakes.

chapter in whatever family
bookwe're reading.
This is truly a place my
family most feels at home. TV,
video games, phone calls, the
newspaper, or my parents'
jobs do not distract us.
Instead, we are in a magnifi-
cent place. We rely on each
other and continue many of
the traditions started by my
grandparents.
Somfeday I know I will do
all of these things with my
children. I hope I can teach
my kids all of the important
things my dad has taught me
as we enjoy our cabin, "Dad's
Dream."


Pine View students bridging the

intergenerational gap with a 'B.I.G. idea


'You Can't Take It With You'


BY MICHELLE MILLER
CORRESPONDENT


My fourth-grade class at
Piine View School has a
"B.I.G." idea about reaching
out into the community and*
bridging the intergenera-
tional gap.
The fourth-grade social
studies curriculum allowed
the students to study Florida,
past and present, and in
doing so they explored the
importance of the Sunshine
State's older generation.
In learning about the im-
portant role played by the
older residents in our com-
munity, and the valuable liv-
ing history lesson that they
embody, the students decid-
ed to tap into it first-hand.
They have designed a
community outreach pro-


gram to develop a relation-
ship with the residents at The
Fountains in Sarasota. During
their first visit March 9, the
students met their B.I.G.-bud-
dies.
Each student came with a
poem they had written about
themselves during, a poetry
unit at school. After reading
their poem, and telling-their
buddy a little about what it is
like being a child in 2006, they
asked them a list of questions
that the class had prepared.
These questions gave the
fourth-graders a glimpse into
the childhood of their buddy
and helped to build a rela-
-.tionship between these new
friends. It was an amazing
time for all.
The students will take this
information back to school
'and write a poem about their


B.I.G. buddy to present to
them at the second visit May
11.
Thanks to a grant awarded
by the Southern Poverty Law.,
Center's Teaching- Tolerance
Grant Program, the class was
able to design their own T-
shirts to wear to the meetings,
purchase a digital camera and
portable printer to provide
the residents with certificates
and pictures on the day of the
visit, and purchase various
books that highlighted posi-
tive relationships between
inter-generational friends to
read before their trips.
With the help of their sup-
portive parents, the staff at
The Fountains and the ad-
ministration at Pine View
School, this outreach pro-
gram will be an unforgettable
experience for all involved.

Guys and electric guitars go together


DAVE BARRY
HUMOR COLUMNIST


This classic Dave Barry
column was originally pub-
lished Oct. 5,2005.

I got a call from a guy I
know named Carl. It was a cry
for help. Carl is a successful
man in his 40s, but some-
times even successful people,
when they are in need, have
to reach out to their friends,
and I am proud to consider
Carl a friend, even though for
my 50th birthday he gave me
some kind of reptile egg,
which thank. God never
hatched.
It took some effort for Carl
to overcome his masculine
pride and tell me what was on
his mind. It was something
that I believe is on the mind of
a lot of guys, although they
cannot always admit it.
"I think I want to buy an


electric guitar," he said.
At some point or another,
almost, every guy wants an
electric guitar. It would not
surprise me to learn that, late
at night, in the Vatican, the
pope picks one up and plays
"Hang On, Sloopy" Electric
guitars exert a strong appeal
for guys, because they com-
bine two critical elements:
1. A guitar.
2. Electricity.
Taken separately, these
elements have little intrinsic
value. But combined, they
have an almost magical ef-
fect: They enable a mediocre
guitar player, or even a bad
guitar player, to play WAY
louder.
I got seriously into electric
guitars in the '60s when, as a
college student, I helped start
a band called "The Guides,"
which later became "The
Federal Duck," which later
became "A Bunch of Guys
Who Got Older and De-
veloped Prostate Concerns." I
have a strong musical back-
ground, which is why Carl
called on me in his hour of
need. We met at a warehouse-
sized musical superstore con-
taining hundreds of electric
guitars, not to mention
amplifiers the size of public
housing. If you live near one
of these stores, you'd better


hope there never comes a
time when all the amplifiers
get cranked up simultaneous-
ly, because the resulting
crater would measure several
miles across.
Carl and I spent a while
looking at guitars, with me
offering knowledgeable in-
sights such as, "Here's a gui-
tar," and "Here's another gui-
tar over here."
Then a salesman helped us
out, explaining various techni-
cal aspects of guitars such as
wood type, body style, pickups,
tuning pegs, necks, frets, etc.
Carl listened carefully, then,
after considering all the factors,
made his decision.
"I want a red one," he said.
So he got a guitar. It came
as part of a -complete rock-
star set in a cardboard box,
which also included a strap,
picks and an amplifier. I was
concerned about the amplifi-
er, because it was small and
probably not powerful
enough to cause permanent
ear damage. But we agreed
that Carl could get a bigger
one if he ever learns how to
actually play.
I called Carl a week later to
see how he was doing. He told
me he'd run into a problem.
"I opened the box," he
said, "and the. guitar was
BLUE." .


Despite this, setback, he
was plugging away.. He's
learning how to play chords
from a videotape instructor.
("He's about 18 years old,"
says Carl. "He has acne.")
Once he's done with the tape,
he'll be able to play "House of
the Rising Sun." Then he can
start a band and play at wed-
dings ("As the bride and
groom cut the cake, we'd like
to play 'House of the Rising
Sun' ") as well as bar mitzvahs
('As you all dance the hora,
we'd like to play 'House of the
Rising Sun' ").
I think there are a lot of
older guys like Carl and me
and the pope, older guys still
fantasizing that we're Jimi
Hendrix (who had the good
sense to die before:he was 30).
As we get even older, we're
going to need specialized
equipment; somebody's go-
ing to make a killing selling
amplifiers that have large,
easy-to-read numbers on the
knobs, so we can make sure
they're turned all the way up.
Also, somebody's going to get
REALLY rich selling earplugs
to nursing homes.
Dave Barry is taking a
leave of absence from writing
his weekly humor column.
His classic columns appear in
the Wednesday edition of the
Venice Gondolier Sun.


Community Foundation of Sarasota County awards grant.


STAFF REPORT


The Community Founda-
tion. of Sarasota County,
through the James and Frank-
lin Warnell and Dorothy J.
Wamell Fund, has awarded a
grant of $95,484 in support of
Senior Friendship Centers
Falls Prevention Initiative.
Now in its second year of a
three year partnership with
the Community Foundation,
the Falls Prevention Initiative
promotes falls prevention
through awareness education


programs, Balance Move-
ment classes, medication re-
views and home safety as-
sessments throughout Sara-
sota County.
"More than one-third of all
adults aged 65 and older fall
each year," notes Program
Manager Lori Whittle. "Ap-
proximately 95 percent of hip
fractures are the result of a
fall, and 50-60 percent of falls
happen at home. The cost to
treat hip fractures in 2001 in
Sarasota County was $30 mil-
lion. Our goal is to provide


people with the information
and services they need to
improve balance and avoid a
debilitating fall."
The program has been
successful in attracting the
interest of older adults who
attend Balance Movement
classes and Falls Prevention
workshops. Currently, more
than 160 seniors attend Bal-
ance Movement classes each
week. An active outreach
campaign includes programs
at locations throughout Sara-
sota County, including Sara-


sota, Venice, Englewood and
North Port.
"One of our goals is to
make our program a national
model that can be replicated
in communities throughout
the country," Whittle said.
For more information, call
556-3223;
Senior Friendsyip Centers
Inc., established in 1973, is a

dedicated to helping older
adults live with dignity and
independence in Sarasota,

T To avoid '
f back pain or
back injury, workers
should recognize that standing in
'one position for too long can cause
posture-related problems. The healthy
body can only tolerate remaining in one
position for about 20 minutes. This explains
why sitting for prolonged periods at a desk
becomes uncomfortable after a relatively short
time. Standing on a concrete floor or at an
assembly line is also likely to be problematic.
Holding the same position slowly stretches the
elasticity out of soft tissues. Then, stress builds
up and causes discomfort. To avoid this problem,
try changing positions frequently, stretch, or take a
short walking break. When you return, use an
. alternate posture for a few moments.
/At Twin Palms Chiropractic Health Center we
can help you assess your athletic and exercise/fitness
goals and analyze your motivation to prevent injuries
caused by going beyond sensible active limits given
your age, health profile, preexisting conditions, and
any other factors. Backs, necks, shoulders, knees,
ankles, wrists, fingers and'toes-in-fact, most bones,
joints and connective tissues-are subject to misuse

Art district plan takes

a leap forward

MARCH 8,2006


Dig they must at Fast Fetch


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

A plan to expand the
opportunity for artists to live
where they work off the main
business corridor along West
Dearborn Street cleared a big
hurdle this week.
Sarasota County commis-
sioners enthusiastically ap-
proved the idea of expanding
the Residential/Commercial
Transition Overlay District,
commonly referred to as the
"artists' overlay district."
Englewood resident Bill
Tryder said he has been a part
of the grassroots effort to
expand the area, which was
part of the original downtown
plan for the Englewood Com-
munity Redevelopment
Agency.
"This would help expand
in a soft manner .the artists'
community we have on
Dearborn Street," Tryder said.
John Davidson said he is in
favor of whatever is good for
Englewood.
"We are your southern bor-
der boomtown," Davidson

Commission Chair David
Mills took a tour of the
Englewood area recently and
said he was impressed with
what the CRA money had
done for the area.
"There is a lot of really
good things going on," Mills
said.
To continue with the posi-
tive things that have already
been approved, County CRA
Coordinator Chris Davis said
the idea to expand the overlay
district has strong communi-
ty support.
Since the original district
was conceived when the CRA
was first established in 1999,
only two people have gone
through -the cumbersome
process of rezoning, Davis
said.
The original district was
limited to a stretch of land

T here's a revolution underway
that's changing the world of
diagnostic 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 tech-
nological advance that provides
remarkably clear, real-time
dynamic images of organs like the
heart, brain and lungs. Physicians
can actually evaluate plaque in
your arteries, spot blood clots
before they cause strokes, or
observe tumors as they respond
to treatment.

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 treat-
ment can begin sooner if there
is a problem. As if that were not
enough, the scans are non-inva-
sive, 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.

erty owned by Old Englewood
Land LLC, a Naples-based
land development company.
The DEP hired Environ-
mental Assessments and
Consultants to take out soil
contaminated over the years
by petroleum, said Chris
Frazier, the project manager


for the consulting firm.
'"They're in a state-
approved cleanup. It's your
DEP dollars at work," he said.
Money for the project and
other environmental cleanup
projects like it throughout the
state are paid for by the feder-
al Superfund Act of 1980.
Frazier said he expects
work to take about a week to


complete. He anticipated
approximately 500 tons of dirt
would be removed, but he
said that is hard to predict.
"We conduct field screen-
ing while we're standing out
here and we dig until it's
clean," he said.
By evening, fences were
being installed around the
property to prevent people


cutting through the parking
lot as they may have done in
the past to avoid the four-way
stop.
"It's going to look a lot dif-
ferent out here," he said.
Frazier said fences could
not be put up at the begin-
ning of the project, because
workers did not know how far
out the land would have to be


dug.
The property had a pit
large enough to swallow up
several vehicles.
It is uncertain what will be
done with the property after
the cleanup work is done.
Ford Thomas, president of
Old Englewood Land, said he
didn't have any immediate
plans for developing the


property until the rest of
Dearborn Street becomes
more developed.
"I don't want to get any-
thing started any time soon.
It's wait-and-see with the
stormwater retention," he
said.

The new zone would run

used in Daytona for its duck
tours before being brought to
Venice. I have been on the
new Daytona boat/bus. It is
very nice and very new but it
has to stop and make adjust-

just plunges right in, the way
a true amphibious craft
should in my humble opin-
ion. There are two trips daily

$18,700 in donations. These
donations will go toward the
funding of 24 local South
County agencies that provide
38 programs.
Ateam of more than 100 of

The group's artistic direc-
tor for the last four years is
Joseph Cole Simmons who
has a flair for zany comedy,
something the Foxes always
include in their shows. Also
being featured are The
Foxettes, an incredible group
of senior tap dancers directed
by Shirley Gawne. Tap danc-
ing must be great for the legs
because these ladies have
absolutely the best legs in
Venice. Rounding out the
show are musical solos and
big production numbers all
by performers who are at
least 55 years of age. They
have one thing in common -
enthusiasm for the stage even
though some may be per-
forming on a real stage for the
first time in their life.

ence is a most rewarding way
of spending this time in their
lives.

Scholarships for a college of
their choosing.
Keynote Speaker, Coach
Bobby Bowden, America's all-
time .winningest collegiate


coach, in a motivational pre-
sentation, spoke to the inter-
generational audience focus-
ing on family and personal
values and the importance of

One of the courtyard
homes at Bellagio, this one
contains tropical plants
rather than a pool. There also
is a separate guest suite off the
courtyard. The greens of the
plants combine with the gold
and copper exterior hues to
inspire the home's interior
decor that favors rust and
olive.
Tray ceilings add to the
visual space within the home.
As in all the houses on this
year's tour, this one has a
state-of-the-art kitchen, with
matching tile on floor and
counters, a farmer's sink and
bronze faucets a Euro-
pean-inspired country look.
Dishwasher drawers, one
above the other, allow for
small loads to be run as nec-

adjacent to the kitchen,
accented with decorative
items collected on the home-
owner's many international
trips.

Ultimate Sarasota Marathon



fuel: Krispy Kreme doughnuts


J.J. Andrews
BACK OF THE PACK

To the woman who hand-
ed me a Krispy Kreme dough-
nut at mile No. 16: Thank you.
Myself and nearly 1,500 of
my closest friends ran in the
inaugural Sarasota Marathon
and Half Marathon last week-
end. According to the official
results, there were 430 of us
who completed the fill 26.2
miles and another 1,031 who
finished the half-marathon
distance of 13.1 miles.
A special thanks needs to
go out to the hundreds of vol-
unteers and fans who helped
the runners finish. The
Ringling Bridge and its hill at
mile 15 had broken me, and I
was starting to fade when a
volunteer at the next water
station handed me a dough-
nut and cup of water.
That carried me through to
the finish and my best
marathon time ever.
Every one of Sunday's run-
ners is a winner. It takes a lot
of guts to train and run one of
these races, and deservedly,
each person went home with
a medal and a Sarasota
Marathon shirt that said
"Finisher."
To all of you: Pat yourself
on the back.
Locals finish strong
Beyond personal accom-
plishment, some local run-
ners those who listed
Venice, Nokomis or Osprey as
their residence took some


hardware home from Sun-
day's race.
In the marathon, the most
notable was Venice Runners
Group regular Melissa Reif-
schneider. The 34-year-old
Venice resident was, the sec-
ond overall female with a per-
sonal-best time of 3 hours, 19
minutes and 49 seconds. Her
time also qualifies her for the
Boston Marathon, the ulti-'
mate feather in every mara-
thoner's cap.
Melissa's success brought a
smile to my face, and made
all those early-morning runs
from downtown Venice -
where we all struggle to keep
up with her worthwhile.
In the male division, the
top local finisher was 29-year-
old Thomas Trealout of
Venice, who was seventh
overall with a time of 2:53:33
- a pace of 6 minutes, 38 sec-
onds a mile.
Alan King, 45, was the top
local finisher in the half
marathon. The Nokomis man
was 19th overall in 1:27:38.
Laura Bailas, 36, of
Nokomis, was the top local
female finisher of the half
marathon. She ran the course
in 1:40:22.
These were simply the
fastest times turned out by
local runners. Watches do not
always define success.
There was Mickey Johnson
of Nokomis, another Venice
Runners Group regular, who
ran his first marathon in a
decade. The 67-year-old was
just out to finish, and he
wound up placing third in his
age group (4:35:04).
Another pair of runners
who earned bragging rights
were Nick Saputo, 54, of
Venice and Denice Maynard,
37, of Bradenton, bothVenice
Runners Group regulars. Nick
and Denice completed their
third marathon in three
weeks. Nick's best time out of
the three came Sunday, fin-
ishing in 3:55:18.
And these are just the suc-
cess stories I know of. Talk to
any one of the people listed in


SUN PHOTO BY.JJ. ANDREWS
Venice Runners Group regular Melissa Reifschneider was the
second female finisher, 37th overall, at the Sarasota Marathon,
with a personal-best time of 3 hours, 19 minutes and 49 sec-
onds. Her time also qualifies her for the Boston Marathon.
