A constriction worker watches as a piledriver works a con-
crete piling into the site of what will be the third building
of the Waterfront on Venice Island condominiums on
Tampa Avenue in Venice. According to a worker on the site
on Thursday an additional 170 pilings must be driven into
the ground in the next two weeks.


Arson at Grove Terrace


Police are searching for suspect in an early-morn-
ing fire a resident extinguished after it burned


through an exterior wall.

BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Quick thinking by a Grove
Terrace Apartments resident
may have prevented a bad sit-
uation from turning into a
disaster.
Venice police and fire in-
vestigators continue looking
for the persons responsible
for an early-morning fire at
about 5 a.m. Sunday. The fire
started on a plastic patio
table, and then spread to the
building.
Fire Marshal Jack Steven-
son has already determined
the porch fire'at 218 N. Grove
St. was purposely set.
The apartment's two resi-
dents woke up right before
the smoke alarm went off.
Cynthia Jordan, 'who, lives at


the apartment, is credited
with using a fire extinguisher
to contain the fire until fire-
fighters arrived.
Stevenson said the fire had
burned through the apart-
ment's exterior, and was on
the verge of spreading to the
entire building.
"This is serious," Steven-
son said. "This,isn't some ran-
dom trash fire in the parking
lot."
Neither of the apartment's
occupants was injured. The
residents had to be put up in a
hotel because of the extensive
smoke damage.
There is a misperception
that Grove Terrace Apart-
ments, which is South
County's only public housing
complex, has solid concrete
walls, Stevenson said.

tips can be left at 366-TIPS.

City seeks $2 million for marina study


The money would fund a study to determine if a
facility with 200-400 boat slips would be feasible
at the Venice Municipal Airport.


BY JJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


itultiplc times and multi-
ple ways, members of the
Airport.Advisory Board asked
Wednesday afternoon if the
city was going to build a mari-
na on Venice airport property.
The city's answer: We're
still checking that idea out.
Left out of that response by
Airport Manager Fred Watts
was that he and City Manager
Marty Black had just applied
for a $2 million economic
development grant through
the U.S. Department of Hous-
ing and Urban Development
while they lobbied for other
airport money in Washing-
ton, D.C., last week.
Black said in an interview
the economic development
grant would go toward per-


mitting and. is the city's
attempt to slow the loss of
public .dock space. No con-
ceptual or dc:ign plar,_ have
been done, but the city man-
ager esti-
mates there
could be 200-
400 boat slips.
The grant b.
application
does not
mean the city
has decided
to build a ma-
rina, Black Watts
said in a fol-
low-up interview, and his air-
port manager's comments to
the airport board were cor-
rect.
"Pursuing funding for the
marina is part of making sure
it's feasible," Black said Thurs-
day.


When asked for comment
by a reporter, all of that infor-
mation was news to Airport
Board member Jim Leis, who
asked the most questions
during Wednesday's meeting.
The grant application does
make it appear as if the city is
farther along-than the public,
realized, Leis said.
Venice
J L should find
out by Sept. 1
if the devel-
opment grant,
willbe award-
ed.
Leis tended
to be the odd
man out dur-
Black ing the Air-
port Board
meeting, as he had numerous
questions about the marina,
reconstruction of runway 13-
31 and enforcement of seven-
year-old noise abatement
rules.
"Sounds like a lot of work
needs to be done," Leis said.


"It'd be nice to be kept
apprised."
Slight variation
The estimated $4 million
runway construction project
created the most tension. Leis
was the dissenter in a 4-1 vote
on endorsing a Federal Avi-
ation Administration grant
application
because the
board had not
seen the final
draft.
Instead, the
airport man-
ager gave the
S' members the
preapplica-
Leis tion docu-
ment and said
it would be "essentially" the
same. Final costs will not be
known until contractor bids
are accepted later this month,
and Watts said the FAA's grant
window could close if action

Good morning, Gondolier
Sun subscriber,
PATRICIA LONSKE


Superintendent Gary
Norris stood before members
of the Longboat Key Kiwanis
Club recently to tell them why'
he believes they should mark
"Yes" on their school referen-
dum ballots.
Up for a vote on March 14
is a four-year extension of a 1-
mill tax that has enabled the
school district to hire teach-
ers, raise salaries and work
toward helping students
compete more successfully in
the 21st century.
Although this was his next-
to-last "stump speech" on a
schedule that began Jan. 5,
Norris' voice betrayed no
fatigue.,
Taking his place at the
lectern, Norris said that those
club members from Sarasota
County who had taken ad-
vantage of the state's home-
stead exemption over the past
four years actually had seen
their. school taxes go down
the last three years because

"growth is so huge in Florida,
the growth of property every-
where around the state." (A
resident with no homestead
exemption pays $100 per
$100,000 of assessed value
per year.)
"Florida funds education
abysmally as compared with
many of the states we all
came from," Norris said.
In fact, the state's level of
funding for schools ranks it
about 43rd out of the 50 states
in the nation, he added.
The 1-mill tax revenue
makes up about 12 percent of
the district's budget, he said.
If the county's voters approve
the continuation of the tax, he
continued, about one-fourth
of the revenue over the next
four years will be spent on
what he calls NeXt Gener-
ation Learning.
The goals of that plan
include enabling students
from lower-income families
as well as minority students
to achieve scores on the

STAFF REPORT


A review of the perfor-
mance of all Venice city work-
ers with the outlook being
big pay increases for deserv-
ing employees is to be com-
pleted by March 14.
The Venice City Council
voted Thursday to review
employee performance, pro-.
posed by Mayor William Mc-
,Cracken.
Council then accepted a
proposal by Councilwoman


Jan Dean for an indefinite
freeze on merit pay hikes
after the upcoming round of
increases.
An evaluation by super-
visors of employee work per-
formance-will be the criteria
for pay hikes in the future, in

The city officials decided
that merit review will insti-
tute a policy of regularly re-
viewing personnel perfor-
mance. Records will be kept

Bringing 'duty, honor, country' back to VHS


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Cadet Jeff Miller spent
part of his Spring Break visit-
ing Venice High classrooms,
including the school's ROTC,
relating his experience at
West Point Military Acad-
emy.
Miller was the valedictor-
ian at Venice High in 2004.
Miller is the son of a retired
Maryland State Police officer,
his grandfather also served
in the military. He's in his sec-
,ond year at the academy on


the Hudson River in Upstate
New York. He's majoring in
aerospace mechanical engi-
neering.
"It's the experience of a
lifetime," Miller said. "I
came back to tell others
about what it's like at West
Point and what I've learned
about 'duty, honor, and
country'."
Miller made the Dean's List
at West Point, which gave him
the opportunity to volunteer
his time and provide infor-
mational sessions about the
academy to classmates at

"It's hard," Miller said
about the heavy course load
(classes run from 7:30 a.m. to
4 p.m.). "The stories by sol-
diers who have, been de-
ployed and came back as
instructors help me keep
going. It's great to about
their experiences directly.
Their enthusiasm and belief
in what they do and why
they do it really shows."

'Expect less' is the message the Sarasota County
School District is sending to schools and unions
as it pares back enrollment projections.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota Cdunty condo
mania is depleting rental
units, resulting in a drop in
enrollment in some schools'
and a slower overall growth
rate than expected, said
school district officials at.
school board budget work-
shop on Wednesday.
Districtwide, enrollment
continues to increase, but at
a much slower pace than
anticipated, said Al Weidner,
executive director of budget
for Sarasota County School
District.
In some areas there was
even a decline in February
enrollment compared to last
October's count, he said.
Lakeview Elementary, Gulf
Gate Elementary, Taylor
Ranch Elementary and Brook-
side Middle are some of the
schools experiencing an ac-
tual decline in enrollment.
New February counts in-
dicate a district enrollment of
41,512. That's 349 students
fewer than the October 2005
count of 41,861. An earlier
projection of 1,500 new stu-
dents for this year was re-
duced back in December to
750. It's now expected to level
out at 350 to 400 new stud-
ents, Weidner said.
It's the first time since 1999
that the February student
count was lower than the pre-
vious October count, he


added., '
Exit interviews with par-
ents have convinced school
officials it's prudent to scale
back enrollment projections,
taking a more conservative
approach to building the
school operating budget for
the 2006-07 school year.
Real estate prices have
doubled over the past five
years. Some teachers whom
the district tried to hire be-
fore the school year started
backed out after finding out
how expensive it is to pur-
chase a Southwest Florida
home.
Venice Board of Realtors
statistics showed in February
2002 the average home was
valued at $238,513. By De-
cember 2005 the average
single-family home sold for
$451,381, with condos selling
at $276,903.

Seeking frugality
Norris outlined for the
school board a revised list of
guiding principles for the
school board and adminis-
tration to follow as they devel-
op next year's budget. The
guidelines appear to signal a
tightening of the budget belt..
The district has less than
a week until the March 14
referendum vote on whether
to continue a 1-mill educa-
tion tax that could raise up
to an estimated $250 million
over the next four years.


"People seem to say they
want a quality education with
better pay for teachers and
lots of programs," said Super-
intendent Gary Norris, "but at
the same time they want
clear evidence of frugality."
Easy to say
"This seems to be a shift ...
a different approach" to the
budget than was previously
discussed, said board mem-
ber Laura Benson. "I'm happy
to see this ... don't get me
wrong. Am I correct?"
"It's not quite as dramatic
as a shift, but more conser-
vative," Norris replied. "The
budgeting process shouldn't
be as automatic as in the
past. We've been able to
grow a fund balance (in ac-
cordance with district policy).
We've started initiatives with
that ... we can't in May or
April give 80 percent of it
away," said Norris, referring
to contract talks.
Norris told the board he will
seek a thorough review of
school budget allocations
against district priorities.
While aspiring to provide
individual schools with equi-
table placement of resources,
and meet class-size amend-
ment rules, Norris said he
intends to stick with McREL
(high school reform) recom-
mendations on the place-
ment of all key instructional
staff.
To accomplish those tasks,
Norris said he will adjust
class-size ratios (likely up-
ward) where they are already
below state requirements.
"The principle is to maxi-
mize student achievement.

Sarasota County school board president Carol Todd and Superintendent Gary Norris listen
.Wednesday morning to a presentation by Al Weidner, executive director of budget, about
another drop in enrollment.


It's easy to say, but it isn't
always easy to do," Norris
said.
School board members
discussed assigning the
school budget by student
units, not attached to dollar
amounts, to better control
the budget process and to
plan for unknowns.
Fewer hires anticipated
With lower enrollment
projections will come fewer
new hires to the district.
Bruce Munson, executive
director of finance, said the
district hired 130 new teach-
ers last year, but that is pro-
jected to be 45 this coming
year.
"It's bringing schools more


in line right now (that) might
, be overstaffed," Monson said.
Even with fewer new
teachers, Superintendent
Norris plans to continue to
build salary incentives iato
the budget.
"To attract and retain the
caliber of professional educa-
tor who can truly make a
difference, teacher compen-
sation must be competitive
and reflective of our commu-
nity's rising cost of living,
especially in the area of
housing," he said.
For now, the district is
keeping a close eye on Sara-
sota Cotmunty's housing, mar-
ket.
"A lot of people think the
investors who drove (rentals),


out ... might leave. We read
in the paper now the condos
are just sitting there," Weid-
ner said.
"It makes it more difficult
for families to move here,"
added Norris. "It's causing us
to be frugal and not over allo-
cate."
In December the district
asked individual schools to
set aside 2 percent of their
budgets ($5 million dis-
trictwide) in a contingency
fund to offset the enrollment
decreases, at least until the
public votes on continuing
the 1-mill education tax.

District may seek multi-year salary contracts


It's been more than 20 years since Sarasota
County negotiated a multi-year contract
with its employees that included salary.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


If Superintendent Gary
Norris has his way, employees
and the Sarasota County
School district will negotiate
once every three years over
salary, instead of annually.
"We'd like to look at it to
see if it has merit," Norris
said. "It could have a stabiliz-
ing effect on the district."
"Budgeting and planning
could be improved with a
multi-year contract. I look
forward to discussing this
possibility with the (school)
board and Sarasota Classified/
Teachers Association," he said.
Currently, Sarasota County
School Board and SC/TA
negotiate a multi-year con-
tract for "language" (benefits
and working conditions).
The contract's salary re-
opener clause allows either
party to reopen bargaining
over salary each year during
the three-year contract, which


is about to expire. Bargaining
for the next contract will likely
begin following the March ref-
erendum vote.
The last time a multi-year
contract included a three-year
schedule of salary increases
was the 1984-87 employee
contract, said district officials.
SC/TA officials said the con-
tract at that time offered 8
percent, 81/2 percent, and
81/2 percent annual increases
over the life of the contract.
SC/TA president Pat Gard-
ner said she is open to the idea.
She and Norris recognize
there are many variables that
would have to be worked
through to make it happen.
Chief among them are state
funding levels that aren't
known until the middle of
May and property valuation
numbers that aren't available
until June or July.
An increase in school em-
ployees retiring and the cor-
responding increase in state
retirement contributions will

also play into the mix.
Other unknowns are nego-
tiating how much and wheri
employees will receive bonus
pay based on NeXt Gener-
ation Learning certification if
the referendum passes.
eComp opposed
Also to be negotiated, if
legislation is passed this
year, is the state's own eCom-
pensation bonus plan that
would grant a $5,000 bonus
to the top 10 percent of
teachers based on student
performance.
The state wants to re-
quire districts to comply
more fully with an existing
law requiring districts to
negotiate a performance pay
component. Norris, who
supports bonus incentives,
told school board members


he has doubts about the
state's plan.
"The science of measur-
ing teacher effectiveness
(and tying it to pay) ... is not
quite there yet," Norris said.
"This will go the way of
merit pay in the' '80s," added
school board president Carol
Todd.
"(Performance pay) cre-
ates a huge issue with the
district because we, don't
assess every classroom," said
Associate Superintendent
Lori White. "It would be dif-
ficult to try to figure out
how to assess fairly and
accountable all classrooms."
White said the Florida
Legislature came out with
the eComp plan because
school districts had not yet
negotiated or allocated funds
to pay at least some of their

"We had a plan, but it
was not based on student
achievement. It was based
on things we thought were

"We're concerned about
the prescriptive nature of

with its eComp plan," Norris
said. "It may interfere with
district plans. I'd like to
move to a full blown (pay)
system that incentives pay.
We are a little early on the
research on the state's value-
added assessments."
Show me the money
Insiders say, not surpris-
ingly, the success of incentive
pay or performance pay
come down to the same bot-
tom line money.


- "If it-were a, really, good
sertiement (offer) that might'
help recruit teachers,", said
Gardner, "it would be pice
not to have to worry about
negotiations for three years.
It certainly would be easier
(to accomplish), if the. refe-
rendum passes."
To get there, the district
and union will have to wean
themselves off .a year-round
bargaining process. That, in
itself, may hinder efforts to
attain a three-year contract
free from reopeners.
Gardner said negotiations
are' often extended because
both sides revisit additional
issues once a contract is
reopened, to fix a mistake,
update ,the contract with
current changes in the law
or address issues of interest to
both sides.

Paw Park



runs short on



doggie bags


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


Going five days without
any doggie bags for walks
with the pooch may not
sound like a big deal for the
average pet owner.
That's not the case at the
city-owned Paw Park on South
Harbor Drive, where hun-
dreds of people walk their
canines on a daily basis. Paw
Park is the area's only dog
park that opens onto' the
beach and the Gulf of Mexico.
Sarasota County Parks De-
partment handles mainte-
nance and operations for the
city, and has blamed an ord-
ering problem for a recent
shortage. The empty bag
holders were finally filled ear-
lier this week.
Paw Park regular Elaine
Schwartz, who takes her 12-
pound pooch there every
day, said it's unusual to go
more than a day without
doggie bags to pick up what
pets produce.
"Typically, on the week-
ends, they run out during
season," Schwartz said.
"There's just so many people
down there." -
Tehe lack of doggie bags
did bother City Manager
Marty Black
Paw Park has become an
attraction for pet owners
across the country, and poor
maintenance of the facility
makes the city look bad, he
said, even though Sarasota
County is responsible.
-&Being, without doggie bags
f6'tillhfi6'~h 'Week' becauise of
an ordering problefi "is i'46f
acceptable, he said.


"This is just another ex-
ample where (Sarasota Coun-
ty) is not only not meeting
the city's expectations, but
now they're not meeting the
community's," Black said.
Most pet owners made
do with plastic grocery bags
left in a collection bin.
This has been the first
complaint about a lack of
bags since 2004. Back then,
Sarasota County was running
out of money because so
many plastic bags were be-
ing used.
The city-owned, county-
operated park was going
through nearly three cases
- that's about 2,240 waste
baggies per week.
At a cost of $50 per case,
that left taxpayers paying
$140 every week to pick up
what a dog leaves behind.
"They're obviously taking
them by the bunches,7 said
Jack Colligan, Sarasota Coun-
ty Parks community services
manager, in the September
2004 story. "They're grabbing
them by the handfuls, putting
them in their cars."
Schwartz thinks county
and city staff simply do not
realize how many people
attend Paw Park, and that on
any one trip, a pet might
need three bags.
If the parks department
really wanted to save money,
it would purchase cheaper
doggie bags, Schwartz said.
"I really don't think
anyone is stealing the bags,"
Schwartz said.

wasn't taken.
City council has final
approval, but it must have a
recommendation from the
Airport Board before a vote
can be taken.
According to the preappli-
cation, the federal grant
would cover nearly $3.9 mil-
lion of reconstructing runway
13-31.
Venice airport would con-
tribute $102,000 out of its
capital funds, and the state
$102,000 in transportation
money.
Watts assured the board
'the final costs would vary
only slightly.
"I have confidence in Mr.
Watts to negotiate this (deal),"
Airport Board member Jo-
seph Rand said, before mov-
ing to endorse the grant
application.


Like it's 1999
Leis reiterated he is not
against the 13-31 project,
despite being in the Golden
Beach Homeowners Asso-
ciation frequent critics of
airport noise as the facility's
neighbor. Planes departing
from runway 13-31 fly over
these homes, but Leis said the
noise doesn't bother him.
There were nine residents
at Wednesday's advisory
meeting, and all of them,
pushed for the airport's other
runway to be rehabilitated
first. A 1999 city resolution
identifies 4-22 as the airport's
primary runway and states it
is to be used, weather permit-
ting, in order to reduce noise.
Residents fear a newly
rebuilt 13-31 will only
increase air traffic over their
homes, and the shrinking pot
of FAA construction money
means it will be years before


4-22 is-fixed.
"We've all hammered and
hammered we want 4-22
done first," island resident Bill
Noonan said. "We all feel like
we're dead ducks if 13-31 is
done first. ... (Runway) 4-22
will never be done in my life-
time."
Residents also asked the
Airport Board why the city
has never asked the FAA to
switch runway projects, and
to provide documentation if
it had done so.
Airport Board chair Paul
Hollowell told audience
members they could not
answer these questions and
would get back to them.
Board members then took"
the vote to endorse the grant
application.
Rubber stamp
Leis said he most likely
would have voted "yes" if he


had seen the final bid costs.
His biggest problem with
Wednesday's meeting was
that he felt as if public opin-
ion was being ignored, and
the Airport Advisory Board
used as a rubber stamp.
Five out of seven members
have either professional or
aviation links to the airport,
while only Leis and Susan
Balsinger have no link to air-
port operations.
For more than a year,
homeowners complaining
about noise have met with
the city manager and city
council airport liaison John
Simmonds, attended airport
workshops and spoke to the
Airport Board.
Leis wonders if anyone at
city hall is listening.
"Some of these people got
up and did everything but get
on their knees and beg for
help," Leis said. "It seems like


we're saying, 'Sorry Charlie.
Tough luck.'"
The city has always intend-
ed to rehabilitate runway 13-
31 first, according to Public
Works Director Larry Heath.
He was the person who bailed
the airport out of financial
trouble in the 1990s when the
public works department
assumed responsibility for
the airport.
By the late 1980s, studies
revealed 13-31 was deterio-
rating more quickly than 4-22
and would have to be rebuilt.
Federal money paid for engi-
neering designs in 1999-2000,
but construction'funding was
cut off because of the airport
lease dispute between the city
and Venice Golf Association.
"Funding stopped because
of VGA. Period," Heath said.
In the six years since, the
city has had difficulty hang-
ing onto a full-time airport


manager. Watts was hired a
year ago and charged with
dusting off the design plans.
Venice is working on 4-22
design plans, but those may
take another two months to
complete and miss the cur-
rent FAA grant cycle, Watts
said.
As for criticisms about lack
of public hearings and com-
ments, the city said the 1999
public hearings and work-
shops satisfy those require-
ments.
'And it's on the agenda.
We're doing (public input)
right now," Watts said to Leis
and the Airport Board. "What
other venues were you con-
templating? ... We've had a lot
of opportunities for public
input."

RHETORIC'zrD rl


Florida Comprehensive As-
sessment Test similar to those
of white students and others
from families with greater
wherewithal; improving grad-
uation rates; and enhancing
career and technical educa-
tion programs.
Norris talked of making
classrooms more "hands-on,"
citing as an example the
instruction of physics in the
school system he left in
Kansas to come to in 2004.
Instead of teachers writing a
lot of formulas on the black-
boards, he said, instructors
worked with students in lab
settings.
"Guess what," Norris said.
"Those young people that
were far below average learn-
ed physics."
Nothing for granted
During a question-and-
answer session following his
remarks, Norris stood his
ground as one member called
teaching "a part-time job"
and claimed salaries already
were "too high."


MORE TO COME
See Sunday's Gondolier Sun
for more in-depth referendum
coverage, including a recap of
what's at stake; columns from
Carl Weinrich and Herb
Levine; and letters from our
readers.


Norris was blunt.
"You are in a minority, sir,"
in holding those views, he'
said. Tracking studies done by
an independent citizens
group showed that most peo-
ple in the county wanted
teacher salaries in Sarasota
County to be higher, Norris
said.
"This is a high-expense
place to live," he said. "You
can't live in Sarasota County
on an average teacher's
salary," which is $44,860,
according to information on
the district's Web site.
Beginning teachers are
paid about $35,000 a year.
At the conclusion of his
remarks, Norris said he felt


good about the chances for
the voters to approve the
extension of the tax, "but you
don't want to take anything
for granted."
He's joined in that assess-
ment by Carl Weinrich, exec-
utive director of the Sarasota
Family YMCA, who heads up
the Citizens for Better Schools
group that is promoting pas-
sage of the referendum.
In a telephone interview,
Weinrich said the organiza-
tion had raised about
$300,000 to pay for TV adver-
tising, signs, T-shirts and
bumper stickers. About 1,000
people are involved in the
effort, he added.
Like Norris, Weinrich has
been spending a lot of time
speaking to groups to urge
them to vote "yes." He is
pleased with endorsements
from the Sarasota County
commissioners and the
municipalities in the county,
as well as "a lot of homeown-
ers associations," he said.
"Most people understand the
value of well-educated youth


and a good school system."
Nothing to gain
On the other side of the
aisle, Herb Levine, who has
been president of the Venice
Taxpayers League for about
six years, thinks the referen-
dum is going to fail this time.
The more money the
school district has, he says,
the more it says it needs. He
does not believe school offi-
cials have been 'good stew-
ards of the approximately
$140 million the 1-mill tax
will have raised by June 30. (If
voters do not approve the
extension, the tax will end on
that date.)
"Figures lie and liars fig-
ure," Levine quoted an old
saying.
Further, Levine said the
leaders of CBS stand to gain
financially from the school
district. The YMCA, for exam-
ple, he said, has contracts
with the district for services it
provides.
Told of Levine's remarks
about CBS board members'


stake in the referendum,
Weinrich responded,
"Absolutely not true. That is
such a nasty thing to say,"
He added, "There is not
one person (on the board)
that stands to gain anything
personally or professionally
in any way."
The Y itself is a nonprofit
organization, he said, and the
CBS board is made up pri-
marily of parents and profes-
sional people. It does not
include any contractors.
Weinrich remains positive
about the outcome of the
March 14 vote, noting that
many of the older residents of
the county are among those
most supportive of the
schools.
"I think we have some of
the most enlightened and
intelligent voters in the coun-


try," who will do what is best
for Sarasota's future, he said.
Kathy Dent, supervisor of
elections for Sarasota County,
said that as of Monday, 4,490
people already had made use
of the early voting option, and
her office had mailed 4,814
absentee ballots.
"Actually, this is higher
than we saw in the last refer-
endum in November," she
said. "I'm thinking there's
some interest in this particu-
lar election."
If those trends continue,
Dent said, the turnout could
be as high as 40 percent.
Elections records show that
35.4 percent of the county's
registered voters cast ballots
in the original 1-mill tax refer-
endum; about 63 percent of
those voters were in favor of
the tax.

OUR VIEW




Water authority continues to struggle


ast week's misguided attempt to in-
crease the staff of the Peace Riv-
er/Manasota Regional Water Supply
Authority is more evidence the water board
has serious issues it must deal with.
When Sarasota County representative
Shannon Staub objected to a late addition to
the agenda to hire four additional staff mem-
bers, she lost a 3-1 vote.
Charlotte County Commissioner Adam
Cummings, however, was also opposed to
the plan but had no idea Staub thought like-
wise.
Cummings was able to get the board to
reconsider the vote and, for now, the hirings
are on hold.
Staub objected to adding four positions
and more than $250,000 in salaries with little
or no notice. She charged that county staffs
can provide most, if-rot all, of the expertise
that would' be requested of the new staff


members which include a water resources
director and an information management
technician.
We do not know enough to recommend
whether these positions are needed. What we
do know is that the authority has'a history of
late additions to agendas and problems with
communication that need to be fixed.
Cummings goes further. He believes there
needs to be a change in leadership.
"It is not uncommon for 50 percent of the
agenda to have no backup material for the
members to see especially if the topic is
anything controversial," Cummings said.
His complaints include:
The authority began a regional water
alliance five years ago and, after failing to
meet for six months; the authority called its
members together for a meeting titled "What.
is regioiialism." After five years, Cummings
said, that should be understood.


Agendas are often altered at the last
minute and members have little or no time to
study an issue.
Cummings believes the authority relies
too much on the Peace River to remedy the
gap in water sources between now and when
the Peace River plant is expanded. He also
said the authority has done little or nothing
to boost production from Sarasota County's
Carlton wellfields.
Cummings' unhappiness with the author-
ity is well known. Some of his peers went so
far as to suggest he step down as a represen-
tative that his.objectivity has soured.
Still, Cummings makes good points -
especially about the problems getting the
authority to support an interconnect with
Punta Gorda. When Staub came out last
week, voicing similar concerns about the
authority leadership, it added validity to
Cummings' complaints.


Decisions made by the authority affect
every water user in DeSoto, Sarasota,
Manatee and Charlotte counties. If the
authority is not progressive in its pursuit of
water supplies, it could mean cutbacks in
water use and possible moratoriums on
development.
Often, where there is smoke there is fire
and it is obvious there are some issues the
authority needs to deal with. We are not
advocating that Executive Director Pat
Lehman be replaced, but he is ultimately
accountable for the authority's actions, or
lack of actions.
The board is not without blame for some
of the problems. It is the board that must
hold Lehman and staff accountable.
When two of the four board members
express the same concerns and with ques-
tions remaining about future water supplies,
some type of change is in order.


Order in the court?


The local newspapers have
lately been full of stories
describing how, as Florida
real estate continues to gr6y
in value; people lacking suffi-'
cient, finances are being
forced td move out.
A number of these stories
focus on the particular plight
of mobile home parks, where
the residents who have been
renting the land are suddenly
being uprooted to make way
for higher-priced condomini-
ums and the like. Many of
these people are retirees liv-
ing their golden years, who
are suddenly, almost literally,
having the rug pulled out
from under them.
It's a sticky wicket. On one
hand you have the right of the
property owner to do as he
sees fit with his land. As a
believer in capitalism, I sym-
pathize with someone who
has invested and taken risks,
and looks to reap his rewards
in equity and profit.
Then you have the unfor-
tunate mobile home owners,,
whose greatest crime is that
they believed their slice of
paradise would last forever,
only to realize they built their
dreams on shifting sands -
or, more accurately, sands
that were not really theirs. It is
easy to sympathize with
them, as well.
So it's a tough one.
As always, some people
immediately cry out for gov-
ernment to step in and dic-
tate policy, or.at least to limit
the rezonings that seem to be
just an application away.
Others see the solution as
simple as saying, "if only they
owned the land," for if that
were the case, these people
could not be so callously
pushed out of their humble
homes.
Or so it used to be, anyway.
Thanks to a decision made
last year by the Supreme
Court of the United States,
Kelo v. New London, even
possessing the deed to your
property is no guarantee that
your home, business or what-
ever cannot be "condemned"
by the local or not-so-local
government as "blighted."
You can be pressed to sell
under duress under the
increasingly abused auspices
of "eminent domain," and
finally, adding insult to injury,
your property can be sold to a
real estate developer, who


then puts up his condos,
apartments or what have you
- all of which ultimately
enriches the local tax base,
the government's coffers
being considered the greater
"public good." Neat, huh?
To summarize: God help
you if your dream home is
suddenly in the way of some-
thing favored by those in
authority.
Of course, this very idea is
completely un-American and
a dire threat to the very foun-
dation of what makes a "free
country." And it's all thanks to
a Supreme Court that has
been increasingly legislating
from the bench over'the last
40 years or so, a'practice that
has been slowly eroding the
rule of law and undermining
the very -principles upon
which this nation was found-
ed.
Kelo is dnly the most
recent example of judicial
arrogance. Over the years var-
ious justices have waxed
rhetorical over "emanations,"
"penumbras" and other
strange energies found radi-
ating from the Constitution
like it was some sort of
radioactive material.
Meanwhile, the funda-
mental rights first acknowl-
edged by the Constitution are
being regularly overridden by
"compelling state interest"
and a host of other rational-
izations. It's difficult to believe
that some of these people
swore an oath to "uphold and
defend the Constitution."
This may come as a sur-
prise, but the commonly held
idea that the Supreme Court
owns the final word in rulings
of law is a complete myth,
cultivated (perhaps unsur-
prisingly) by the judiciary
over the years.
The Supreme Court's pow-
er is not absolute. James Mad-
ison and many other found-
ing fathers all voiced their
concerns about the power of
the judiciary.
To. quote Mr. Jefferson,
"Certainly there is not a word
in the Constitution which has
given that power to them
more than to the Executive or
Legislative branches."
Alexander Hamilton wrote
in Federalist No. 78 that "the
judiciary possesses neither
the power of the purse nor the
sword."
The Constitution itself
allows the Supreme Court's
jurisdiction to be limited by
Congress, as described in
Article III, Section 2.
Of course, we can always
do something really radical,
such as appoint justices like
the recently confirmed Sam-
uel Alito, who actually be-
lieves that the plain language
of the Constitution means
what it says.
Imagine, a justice who will
actually rule rather than re-
vise.
Like I said: radical.

LET TERS FROM OUR RE aERS



Be fair, share the wealth
g


Editor:
The one word to describe the dilemma occurring at Shady
Haven Mobile Park would be "fairness."
What is fairness? Let's start with the numbers first.
The developer's offer to the Shady Park owner is $7.8 million.
The offer to the residents is $1,300, to either move it or leave it.
If they choose to move it, our present codes wouldn't allow it,
therefore they leave it, collect their $1,300 and go directly "past
go" to your nearest soup kitchen and the cardboard box they
will now call home.
Let us review this again: the park owner gets $7.8 million,
which in turn breaks down to roughly $74,000 for each of the
106 home sites in the park. That's right, $74,000. each. We then
have the present park residents getting $1,300, free soup and a
box.
Almost doesn't seem fair.
Enough with the humor. This isn't funny or fair; here is my
suggestion to make it right.
If in fact if the last home site was sold for $40,000 as alleged,
the park owner, in all fairness, should compensate all 106 park
residents a minimum of that amount. Remember, he would
have taken $29,000 per home site back when he was wanting to
sell. All and all, the poor guy would still make about $3.5 mil-
lion clear.
In the end you're still wealthy, and are a hero in everyone's
eyes. Really, in all fairness, it's the right thing to do.

point, so I would like to clari-
fy my views.
Studies have shown that


higher current school district
per-pupil spending leads to
higher achievement com-
pared to lower current school
district per-pupil spending.
So the amount of money
spent on students matters.
Comparing public educa-
tion spending in 1970 to pre-
sent spending without con-
sidering inflation is like com-
paring gas prices then and


now. Both public education
costs and gas prices have ris-
en. No surprise there. Every-
thing has gone up in 36 years.
The only comparison that
is relevant (and it is not a
myth) is that higher current
spending does indeed lead to
higher achievement. (This
leaves out the argument as to
whether scores on one test re-
liably quantify student learn-
ing.)
One other point you made
was about teacher salaries. In
my opinion, you again used
invalid comparisons.
Workers today are paid
more based on the level of ed-
ucation they have. For exam-
ple, a college degree results in
higher career earnings than a
high school degree.
Teachers are extremely
well educated. As much as I
admire and respect firefight-
ers, policemen and nurses, a
better comparison to the
educational level of teachers
would have been doctors,
lawyers or engineers. And not
many of them are willing to
work for an average of
$45,000 per year.
As for a teacher's work
schedule, most teachers I
know work a full year due to
acquiring more education
and skills during the summer
to benefit their students.

No more growth
at the airport
Editor:
The city of Venice can
improve its services to the
community by being a good

The noise and air pollution

Reader referendum reactions


All lies. Isn't it amazing that the closer we get to March 14,
the school referendum, the lies and threats that are coming
out? Just reading the letter from readers on today's issue of the
Gondolier Sun, one of these guys was saying that if you vote for
this it is not a tax increase. What in the world is he thinking
about? It is a tax increase. They're asking you to continue this
for another four years. He goes on to say that it's the same thing
that you're already paying. Guess what? After those four years
is up, you're going to be asked again to support another four
years. He goes on to say that if you don't vote for this, teachers
will take a 15 percent cut in pay. Now, that's absolutely ridicu-
lous. The money's there, the teachers have their salary. Why in
the world would you cut teachers' salaries by 15 percent if the
referendum is not passed? These are nothing but lies and
threats. For heaven's sakes folks, read something about the
school board. They've got more money now than ever. Don't
vote for this silliness that's going on right now.


Should volunteer. Having
moved here a few years ago
from the north, I continue to
be shocked by the extrava-
gance of the Sarasota school
district, particularly with the
salaries of the board mem-
bers. In most areas of our
country, school board mem-
bers are volunteers, and many
compete for this privilege, so
what is wrong with Florida?
I'd like to see a detailed article
about the amount of time
board members spend at
other jobs and the salaries
they receive. I'd also like doc-
umented the time that they
spend on school board work.
They certainly don't spend as
many hours as the teachers
whose salaries they equal.
Wake up Sarasota, make this a
volunteer position and you
will be inundated with highly
qualified, dedicated, con-
cerned individuals who care
about helping Sarasota school
district.
Pocket rocket. School su-
perintendent Gary Norris'
makes $160,000 per year. It's
easy for him to pay this tax.
Earlier in the year, Dr. Norris
wrote out a million-dollar ini-
tiative to put GPS units on
buses. That's ludicrous. It's
not a spaceship. How about a
stricterr discipline code?
what's next? A tax-generating
rocket set to sock it to your
pocket for hundreds of extra
dollars a year. I'll vote no.
Come out, come out. All
senior citizens and others,
wake up. Come out from
under the covers. I don't know
about you, but I have almost
two months of my Social
Security going to pay the
school taxes each year. Let's
all get out and vote "No" this
time on that ridiculous school
tax on March. 14.
Misinformation? The arti-
cles on the Sarasota County
referendum to continue the
1-mill tax gave much infor-
mation, including misinfor-
mation. The 15.6 percent pay
reduction I don't think
that's right. Are there any
other errors?
Stupid. Another near mil-
lion dollars going down the
drain for advertising, spread-
ing the word, posting real
pretty signs all over the place
- and for putting just one
item on the ballot for the
Sarasota County School
Board special referendum.
How stupid we be.
Enough. It's been proven
that more money does not
mean better teaching or
increase a student's ability to
learn. Half of all teachers, just
as half of all doctors and half
of all lawyers, graduated in
the bottom half of their class.

Enough robbing the people.
And by the way, I object to; I
am offended and appalled by
that monster beer billboard at
the approach the south
bridge. Does no one in leader-
ship have intelligence, in-
tegrity or concern about
pushing drugs? Alcohol is a
drug. Beer is alcohol. So much
for "Just say no" while you're
pushing it. And for heaven's
sake, billboards are ugly any-
way. Where is Venice leader-
ship?Whoops, too busy build-
ing again and maybe they just
needed the money from the
billboard beer sign.
Overextended. One point
made by outside auditors was
the school cannot spend
money it does not have. This
is probably true, but they
have spent money they really
did not have, because of the
additional property tax. They
spent millions and millions of
dollars over what they ever
should have had. I don't think
the tax should be extended
because if they get the money,
they're going to spend, spend,
spend, regardless of how
much additional money
comes in. Second, on all these
signs being posted all of a
sudden: I realize these were
put up by the group for better
schools, but I feel-the signs are
' 6 extended and hfth money
could be better used toward
school programs rather than
being plastered all over the
county and becoming an eye-
sore.
Vote no. Yes, we need to
stop the waste now with the
school board and all their
shenanigans. I think every-
body should get out and vote
"No" on March 14, or better
yet, do it before March 14. But
please, get out and vote "No."
All time low. I guess this
could be entitled, "An all-time
low," after picking up the
newspaper and finding that
the school district has now
pulled the race card, indicat-
ing that our Hispanics and
blacks' are rot fairing very well
in our school system. We


must have another $200 mil-
lion or $300 million to eradi-
cate this deficiency. I'm
absolutely appalled that we
bring a high-powered speaker
in to convince the voters of
Sarasota County we need to
do more and more and more,
and now the race card. That is
a slap in the face to all of us,
I'm sure.
Maintain or improve? I re-
ceived my sample ballot for
the 1-mill tax referendum for
the Sarasota County school
system. It states the tax exten-
sion is for operating expenses
for "necessary to maintain the
quality of Sarasota County
public school system." I've
been told by school officials
that the 1-mill will significant-
ly improve the quality of the
Sarasota County school sys-
tem. Seems to me that' 1/2 to
3/4 mill is probably all that is
necessary to maintain the
quality of the system.
Clouding the picture. I can-
not believe there is opposi-
tion to the school district ref-
erendum. Of all the things our
tax money supports, isn't the
education of our children the
most important? If this refer-
endum fails, our schools will
be devastated by a $45 million
cut in the budget. The school
board spent the money exact-
ly the way the community
asked for lower class sizes
and higher teacher pay. Our
schools are finally headed on
the way up. Don't let them flip
backward. If this fails, what
teacher can afford to move
here or stay here, for that mat-
ter? How will our kids com-
pete with those in areas that
do support their schools? For
the past four years, I've
enjoyed bragging to my up-
north friends about how
proud I was to live in a com-
munity that puts education
and children first. Please don't
let this agreement from petty
issues'tloud the big picture.
Support our children.
' Uncalled for. I would like to
urge every single person to
vote "No" on the school tax. It
is not necessary that children
in kindergarten and grammar
school have computers and
other equipment. That is
uncalled for when they can't
even' add one and one. Why
not reduce Norris' salary,
number one? Number two,
the school board should serve
their county free, as they do in
other counties. This, taxation
is getting out of control. My
light bill does not go down; no
one helps me with that. My
water bill keeps going up, up,
up, and no one. helps me. I
urge every human being to
vote "No." We do not need it.

Promises of yesterday unfulfilled


BY RICHARD BRADY
GUEST COLUMNIST

Will the "Promise of To-
morrow" 1-mill school tax
improve the education of our
children?
Will their education suffer
with a "No" vote?
Are you afraid to vote "No"
because you may be viewed
as selfish and not caring
about our children.
Your decision should be
based on whether those 2002
promises were fulfilled and
our children's education actu-
ally improved, rather than on
slogans, signs and new prom-
ises.
Did our children get a bet-
ter education from the 2002
tax?
The Florida Department of
Education evaluates individ-
ual schools in the 67 school
districts and reports a district
score. This yearly evaluation
awards points based on stu-
dent's FCAT, test results for
reading, math and writing
and compares earlier FCAT
results for each student to
determine improvements,
which also. earn points, and
other factors.
DOE reports dollar spend-
ing per student for each of
Florida's 67 school districts.
The latest available spending
data is for 2002-03, the begin-
ning year of Sarasota's 1-mill
tax, whichishould have yield-
ed improved district scores by
2005.
Twelve Florida school dis-
tricts achieved higher scores
than Sarasota in DOE 2005
evaluations while, in 2002-03,
each spent fewer dollars per
student. Those '12 spent an
average of $4,324 per student
compared to Sarasota's
$5,289.
Sarasota's school district
spent an extra $40 million -
$965 extra for each of our
41,368 students. The existing
1-mill tax revenue averages
$40 million annually.
Three districts in Florida
actually speiir more per stu-
dent than Sarasota but scored
even lower. These results
show higher spending did not
result in improved results.
Florida Education
Commissioner Winn wrote,
"National education experts


agree and research confirms
that the quality of a teacher is
the number one contributor
to student success."
A recent news report quot-
ed Venice High School Prin-
cipal Candace Millington say-
ing, "Research tells us a good
teacher is the single most
important factor in student
achievement."
The NeXt Generation plan
fails to include a system that
evaluates teachers in order to
replace poorly performing
teachers or make them effec-
tive. The NeXt Generation
plan will give teachers more
money for merely taking
training courses, rather than
achieving improved measur-
able results in their class-
rooms.
Promises, new programs
and frills sound good, but
actually it is the classroom
teacher who makes the differ-
/ence. DOE data proves that
spending more dollars did
not improve student or dis-
trict achievement. The dis-
trict's score was 421 in 2004,
dropping to 411 in 2005.
Are we being told the
whole truth about the school
finances?
A Sarasota newspaper
published an extensive report
on Feb. 26, informing us
General Fund Revenue was
$259 million. According to the
district's 2005-2006 budget,
the newspaper ignored $105
million from the state of
Florida and federal sources,
plus $25 million from other
sources.
Sarasota School District
budgets show operational
spending increased 20.2 per-
cent in 2003-04 compared to
2002-03, increased another
19.8 percent ;in 2004-05, and
another 12.5 percent in 2005-
06. Is there really a lack of
money?
Property owners are being
told extending this tax will
have a small impact on prop-
erty taxes because we are
I,; p ^ ^e4r (11a imied
,increases.i, assessed value.,.
Nonresident property
owners and businesses are
subject to greatly increasing
valuations and taxes, yet can-
not vote.
They are taxed without
representation.


Proposed spending, if the
tax is renewed for another
four years, will include
$8,797,069 for a 2-percent
cost of living increase. The
expected cost for the 2009-10
school year is $23,711,882, or
2.7 times as many dollars.
Thus in three years salaries
will be 2.7 times more costly.
Can taxpayers afford that?
If another four-year tax is
approved, will a 2-mill tax
then be needed? Are we creat-
ing a perpetual spending
machine?
It is apparent voters are
like the blind man feeling one
part of an elephant, trying to
understand the whole ani-
,mal. Examining only the tail,
it may seem like a small ani-
mal which is actually much
bigger. That is the feeling I get
when reading newspapers,
signs and district literature
urging us to renew the tax.
Many facts are missing or
confusing. For example, the
Sarasota School District 2004-
05 Budget Summary Report
says the ending Fund Balance
is $45 million on June 30,
2005. How did this turn into a
$103 million Fund Balance,on
July 1, 2005, per the 2005-06
report, an increase of $58 mil-
lion?
Who else has a magical
clock that creates money at
midnight, or did they get back
some of the $75 million trans-
ferred out (to where?) in the
2004-05 budget? We need bet-
ter and clearer answers before
voting on this tax.
In conclusion, there has
been no improvement in
Sarasota School District DOE
scores despite significantly
increased school spending.
A logical thinker cannot
justify renewing the tax, espe-
cially when some, 2002
promises for improved per-
formance remain unfilled.
Taxpayers deserve accu-
rate and complete facts
before approving a $225 mil-
lion tax to be spent over the
next-fg9r years. Sarasota resi-
dnf should o6tei."el.No.

Realtors commit to




build Habitat house


Medical practice expanding


BYALAN D. JOHNSON
CORRESPONDENT

The Venice Board of Real-
tors has added a new dimen-
sion to its real estate activities.
It has launched a drive to
raise $85,000, which will help
Venice Habitat for Humanity
develop its next step in low-
income housing town-
houses. More than a dozen
will be built at the northeast
corner of Laurel Road and
Knights Trail east of 1-75.
There, a 1-acre site will be
leased to Habitat by the city of
Venice, making it the only
municipality in Sarasota
County to actually commit to
affordable housing.
The Realtors' drive was
announced at a kick-off party
sponsored by BB&T at the
Venice Community Center
March 8. Lena Reid, loan offi-
cer at the BB&T Bank, said,
"The Venice Board of Realtors
recognizes that it is time to
give back to the community
... we have all experienced
much success in our work
with real estate."
Hundreds of invitations
went out inviting "Realty
board members, affiliates.and
interested parties" to help
with cash, fundraising ideas
and "your commitment to
help carry out the activities."
The money, Reid said, will
go for the general needs of
Habitat for Humanity.
"I am making it a personal
mission to promote this goal
for as long as it takes for us to
raise the $85,000 needed. It
will make us all feel good that
we were able to help a family
in our local community."
Stepping up
Judy Wilcox, executive di-
rector of Venice. Area Habitat
for Humanity, said the money


FUNDRAISING ON THE WATER
Precision Custom Homes, Inc., Venice Area Habitat for Humanity
and the Home Builders Association of Sarasota County are spon-
soring two fun events to raise money for Habitat:
* Coconut races area businesses and individuals sponsor a
coconut for 5200. Their name is painted on the coconut and the
coconut is raced. Entry deadline is March 24.
- Cruisin' for Families a boat enters the cruise for S 150. A team
of four participants travel by boat to area waterfront locations
where they answer trivia questions to earn points. The teams with
the most points win family prize packs. Lunch for four is included.
Register now to beat the lines on the day of the event.
Both events take place Saturday, April 8, at the Casey Key Fish
House, in Osprey. Cruisin' for Families is 10 a.m. to noon; the
coconut races are from noon to 4 p.m.
Funds will support the Blitz Build, June 5-9, when as many as 10
homes will be built in just one week in Sarasota, in conjunction
with Habitat International's Blitz Build of 1,000 Homes in five days
to celebrate its 30th anniversary.
For event and volunteering information, call Kelly Olliver, 232-
1905. For Habitat information, call 493-6606. For 2006 Blitz Built
information, call John Olliver, 232-3451, or Home Builder's
Association of Sarasota County, 412-9696.


will be used to help develop
its townhouse project.
Up to now,. the local Hab-
itat chapter has built 30
ranch-style, single-family
units throughout its service
area of Laurel, Venice, South
Venice, Englewood and North
Port. Two other homes are
under construction.
Jon Steketee, past presi-
dent of the local habitat and
board member, said the move
to townhouses is a result of an
increasing shortage of avail-
able land.
"We will be able to build
somewhere between 14 and
20 units, depending on how
the planners are able to use
the parcel," he said.
He hopes to start construc-
tion "sometime next spring,"
and complete the project
"about six months later."
The homes will be situated
next to a South County Fam-
ily YMCA facility and a shop-
ping center, both to be con-


structed by Waterford Com-
panies. The YMCA will in-
clude a day care and wellness
center.
The townhouses may be
new for Venice area habitat
but the requirements for
ownership remain the same:,
Owners must have family
need; be income-qualified
(generally a third to half of the
area. median income); and
invest at least 300 hours of
volunteer labor in construct-
ing Habitat homes. This is
called "sweat equity" by the
organization.
Ownership is financed with
special low-interest mortgages.
Wilcox looks at the project
as "an absolutely great arena,
partnership, we're entering ....
Venice has really stepped up
to the plate."
The city's action in devel-
oping a lease to Habitat and
to the YMCA was led by coun-
cil member Rick Tacy and
City Manager Marty Black. .


Dr. Ron DeMasi and Dr. Ravi Kondapali shovel dirt during the groundbreaking for their
new 13,000-square-foot medical center on the 2.25-acre lot on which the existing five-
year-old Gulf Coast Endoscopy Center of Venice is located, 1220 E. Venice Ave., Venice.
The groundbreaking was timed to coincide with National Colorectoral Cancer Awareness
Month. The new building, expected to be completed in January 2007, will have'two floors
with offices for four gastroenterologists and facilities for planned expansion to eight
physicians in five years.



Bonefish Grill in Venice's future


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINESS! COLUMNIST


If planners agree, permits
are granted, leases will be
completed and Venice will
have a Bonefish Grill restau-
rant.
Tampa commercial real
estate broker JoAnn Ferlita
confirmed a letter of intent,
the first stage indicating in---
terest in leasing a specific lo-
cation, has been received by
The Waterford Companies,
but it is a long way from being
final.
The chosen location is the
outparcel adjoining the Ken-


tucky Fried Chicken franchise
on Tamiami Trail near Gal-
leria Plaza, the location of
Venice's new Frank Theaters
Galleria Movie Theater, which
opened this week.
According to Ferlita it would
be a nice-looking, stand-alone
Bonefish Grill Restaurant,
which typically could be con-
structed and opened within
-90-120-daysefa eontrae-- ----
"Venice is very high on our
list of future locations be-
cause it's growing rapidly, and
we will take some place even-
tually," said John Mays, joint
venture partner for Bonefish
Grill.


He confirmed he has
looked at the location near
Galleria Plaza, but there is a
lot more research to be done.
A simple letter taking the
first steps may have been
exchanged, but until negotia-
tions on a lease have been
completed there is no definite
arrangement, stated Mays.
According to Tim Martin,
-head-of site selection-for-the
company, they are still re-
searching the area.
Founded in January 2000
in St. Petersburg, Bonefish
Grill has 102 restaurants and
is affiliated with Outback
Steakhouse Inc.

our local businesses grow and
succeed.
"It's exciting to be part of
this year's delegation. For 25

have personally financed
their involvement to partici-
pate in this. It just shows you
how important the chamber's
mission is to our members,"
said Lehner.
Meetings have been

Errors kill Lady Indians against Manatee


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Playing its third game in
as many nights on the road
finally caught up with the
Venice High varsity softball
team.
The Lady Indians saw a
nine-game winning streak
erased with an 8-6 loss to
Manatee Thursday night at
G.T. Bray Park.
Venice (10-2 overall, 7-1 in
Class 5A District 12) killed
themselves with errors -
something they had avoided
through most of the season.
The Lady Indians grabbed
a 3-0 lead but saw it evaporate
in a nightmarish bottom of
the third. Manatee scored six
unearned runs there as Ven-
ice committed four errors in
the frame.
"We had three. straight
errors on bunts," Lady Indian
head coach Larry Sandburg
said. "I'm not very happy."
Venice had won its first
two games in the road swing,
defeating Bayshore and
Charlotte.
Heather Laird suffered the
loss her first since 2004.
She is now 6-1 on the season.


Venice out-hit Manatee
6-4. Two of the Lady Indians'
hits were home runs by
Maureen Sandidge. She
cleared the fence in the sixth
and seventh frames.
VENICE 15, CHARLOTTE 0
- The Lady Indians im-
proved their overall record to
10-1 and their district mark
to 7-0 with this cakewalk on
the dusty diamond in Punta
Gorda Wednesday night.
Heather Boyts pitched the
shutout, raising her record to
4-1. She allowed three hits
and struck out six.
Heather Laird got the
Lady Indians jump-started
with a two-run home over
the fence in the second inning
off Charlotte starter Pheedy
Spallone.
Venice went up 4-0 in the
top of the third as Brittany
Hipple singled and moved to
third on a double by Maureen
Sandidge. Both scored when
Kristeh Bailey's bouncer to
second went into right field.
Venice scored three in the
fourth and two in the sixth
to lead 9-0. Sandidge, the
sweet-swinging first baseman,
had a RBI single in the fourth
and a RBI double in the sixth.
The floodgates opened in
the top of the seventh, as
Venice scored six times off
Charlotte reliever Christy
LeMaster.
Sandidge and Hipple each
finished with three hits.

Losing not part of Laird's game


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Even the best pitchers lose
once in a while, but don't tell
that to Venice High softball
ace Heather Laird.
After posting a perfect
14-0 won-loss record last
year and getting off to a 6-0
start this season, the right-
handed senior couldn't re-
call the last time she lost a
game.
"I don't remember when.
it was," Laird said. "All the
games run together. I just go
out there and pitch. I think it
was at the endjof my sopho-
more year."
Laird won 11 games as a
10th grader. Prior to Thursday
night's game at Manatee, the
last time she lost was at the
tail end of the 2004 season.
Heather shared pitching du-
ties with Danielle Durham
that season and as a fresh-
man on the varsity squad.


Laird also threw a no-hitter as
a freshman.
Last year, Laird was a huge
part of the Lady Indians' fine
season. She
won 1-0 over
Estero in the
regional quar- P
terfinal.
Laird fired .
a total of 10 "'
shutouts and
recorded 101
strikeouts her
junior year. Laird
That was
enough for
Manatee Community College
doach Jeff Roberts to want her
on the Lady Lancers.
Laird wasn't about t6 stop
there.
Despite the mound being
shoved back three feet to
pump more offense into the
game, Laird has still been
extremely effective.
"At first, I was nervous
about the change," Laird said.


"My speed has gone down,
but that's true for everybody.
My pitches now move more.
My curves can curve better
and my risers rise better. I'm
not a huge strikeout pitcher
anyway. Our defense has
been awesome. I can throw
my junk and they back me
up.
The infield play of Brittany
Hipple at shortstop, Kristen
Bailey at second base and
Felicia Taylor at third has
been outstanding. Little Nikld
Clark covers a lot of -ground
in centerfield. Catcher Megan
Watson has shown a strong
arm.
Icing on the cake has been
the pop in Laird's bat of late.
She had a two-run home
over the fence at Charlotte
Wednesday night.
"Coach D (Pete Dom-
broski) has helped me," Laird
, said. "I start myhands higher."
Which has translated into
more hard-hit balls.

Late last month, the Venice
High girls tennis team drop-
ped a tough 4-3 decision at
Bayshore High in an early
season match.
On Thursday, the Lady
Indians returned the favor,
shading the Lady Bruins 4-3
at 1 Indian Ave.
The Venice girls improved
their season record to 6-2.
Bayshore fell to 4-3.
Venice, coached by the
amiable veteran Barb Ginn,
won at No. 3, 4 and 5 singles


and at No. 2 doubles.
Senior captain Ashley
Grozier grabbed the win at
No. 3, shutting down Erika
Sandaval, 6-0, 6-0. The last
.time the two teams played,
Grozier lost to Limey Con-
treras, who was out of the
lineup this time.
Sophie Erber won at No.
4, defeating Kelly Officer, 6-4,
6-0. Diana Mehserle played
at No. 5 singles and won 6-1,
6-1 over Katarina de Sano-
guriera.
The Lady Indians still need-
ed another win to secure the
match. That came at No. 2

doubles where Marta Kowalik
and Mehserle teamed up to
defeat Officer and de
Sanoguriera, 8-2, in a pro
set.
Venice almost got another
win at No. 1 doubles, as
Rachel Rossi and Grozier
came up just short, losing a
7-4 tiebreaker to Nina Alim-
pic and Mia Papaja.
Both Rossi and Kowalik lost
singles matches but played
much better against their
Bayshore opponents this time
around.
Rossi, the promising
sophomore at No. 1, lost
6-2, 6-3 to Alimpic. She bat-
tled hard. Kowalik won the
first set against Papaja, 6-3,
but then lost 6-3, 6-2.
Venice will play host to
Lakewood Ranch next Tues-
day.

Boys also defeat Bayshore
The Venice High boys ten-
nis team upped its record to
5-3 with a 5-2 victory over
visiting Bayshore Thursday.
The Indians got singles
victories from Stephen Taylor
at No. 1, Michael DeRoma
at No. 4 and Adrian Hevia at
No. 5.
Venice also swept both
doubles. Taylor and Dom
Baiamonte won a tiebreaker
at No. 1. Steven King and
DeRoma cruised at No. 2.
Baiamonte lost at No. 2 sin-
gles and King in three
sets at No. 3 singles.

South Jetty is big leagues
Sot s es


MR. SHEEPSHEAD


We're not minor league
anymore.
I believe that the South
Jetty (Venice) attacks more
tourists and fishermen than
any place in town.
I'm tired of informing vis-
itors that they have to take
their fish home to clean
them. This makes no sense.
I'm not a plumber or engin-
eer, but it seems to me that
they could connect to the


water line that goes into the
Sandcastle building. It doesn't
have to be right there, put it
closer to the fence near
Crow's Nest.
Maybe we should, start a
petition?
On the fishing front, the
sheepies were hot at the
Jetties this past Monday. Just
about everyone was catching
several. Top baits were frozen
cooked fleas and shrimp.
As promised here is Jay of
Indiana's top secret recipe
for fish.
Please remember that this
is top secret information. I
know I can trust you not to
i tell anyone. I tried this first
on sheepies and then on
pompano.
This recipe is so weird
that I think you would be
embarrassed to share this
with anyone.
Fillet fish and cut into


small strips. Put them into a
small uncovered saucepan.
Put in approximately 12-15
ounces of 7 Up, Sprite or
Squirt. Remember, I warned
you about how weird this
would be. Cook for a minute
or two, no longer. Do not use
anything else. Jay calls this
"Fish Candy."
I used the Sprite on my
3-p6und sheepie and it was
delightful. I used Squirt on
my pompano and didn't like
it as much. Next time I will
use Sprite on my pompano.
This is a great snack and
conversation piece.
See you next week,
sheepReadites.,,, . o. My

"We've had a pretty steady
turnout so far," said Liz Bren-
nan .of the county elections
office.
Early voting ends March 12.
The Sarasota County
School District estimates the
continued tax would raise
between $215 million and
$250 million, depending on
how much property values
increase. A 1-mill increase
equals $100 per $100,000 in


home value.
Failure to approve the ref-
erendum could result in the
dismantling of many pro-
grams, cut salaries, and send
the district into-,a tailspin, say
proponents.
Spearheading the referen-
dum effort is Citizens for Better
Schools, which took the lead in
supporting the 2002 referen-
dum. Volunteers, along with
teachers and children, have


been spotted wearing green
shirts and holding signs asking
for support.
Ballot language authorizes
an ad valorem tax in the
amount of 1 mill per year for
four years, for school district
operating expenses.
Voters will decide on the
following referendum lan-
guage: "Shall the Sarasota
County School District ad val-
orem millage increase of 1.00


mill per year adopted by the
voters in March 2002 for fiscal
years beginning July 1, 2002
and ending June 30; 2006 be
continued for the fiscal years
beginning July 1, 2006 and
ending June 30,2010 for oper-
ating expenses necessary to
maintain the quality of Sara-
sota County's public school
system?" (Voters markYES for
continuation or NO against
continuation.)


Voting machines are in
three offices, including North
Port, 13640 Tamiami Trail in
Biscayne Plaza; Sarasota, at
the Terrace Building, 2001 Ad-
ams Lane; and Venice at the
Robert L. Anderson Admin-
istration Building, 4000 South
Tamiami Trail.
The offices are open until
4:30 p.m. Friday; from 9 a.m.-
1 p.m. Saturday; arid Sunday
1-5 p.m.


With less than a week until
the March 14 vote on contin-
uing Sarasota County's 1-mill
school tax, several thousand
residents have already cast
their ballots.
Voters will determine if the
1-'mill school tax should be
continued for another four
years.

Literacy summit generates ideas for Sarasota County


BY SHELLEY DRAPER
STAFF WRITER


Nancy Pike, director of the
Sarasota County Library,
opened the Literacy Summit
Tuesday by placing a number
on the face of literacy in
America.
"There are over 40 million
people in this country whose
reading skills are not where
they need to be in order to
function in society," said Pike.
The Literacy Summit, held
at the Girl Scout Auditorium
in Sarasota, attracted about
100 concerned teachers, li-
brarians, community activists
and volunteers to discuss the
need for programs to combat


illiteracy.
According to the U.S.
Department of Education, lit-
eracy is not defined by the
ability to pass a standardized
test, but rather the ability of
individuals to use written in-
formation to function in so-
ciety and to achieve goals.
"We must focus on the
possibilities, not place and
not rehash blame," said Pike.
According to the Depart-
ment of Education, on a
federal test considered a
report card for the country,
the reading performance of
17-year-olds has essentially
been stagnant for 20 years.
"Whether you are talking
about teen mothers, immi-


grants to this country, adult
'new readers,' or the growing
number of students needing
extra assistance, we need to'
develop and support pro-
grams that eliminate illitera-
cy," said Pike.
The earlier, the better
Linda Crane, School Board
Sarasota County Language
Arts Program specialist, is
passionate about the literacy
needs of the children. She
eagerly wanted to get to
know each of the other
agency's programs.
"That's what this summit
is about," she said. "The good
thing is that the after-school
programs provided by the


Round table discussions were held Tuesday at the Sarasota County Literacy Summit, where indi-
viduals shared program information.


school board help to extend
the total number of hours
available to for kids that
need help reading and writ-
ing, little kids big minds."
The summit focused on
diverse individuals and orga-
nization representatives who
shared their program and
resource information. Most
are aimed at reaching as
many people as possible
who have reading compre-
hension problems.
Tony Torrence, area direc-
tor, for the Boys & Girls Club
of Sarasota County, said the
"greatest potential" for im-
proving literacy is for a child's
home environment to play a
role.
He said teaching kids to
love books is possible only if
parents learn to appreciate
their potential and are in-
vested in their children's lives.
"The (earlier) the interven-
tion, the better," said Torrence.
Increasing the time spent
engaging children and mak-
ing it a habit to have reading
material at home will help,
he said.
Robyn Faucy, partnerships
director of Big Brothers Big
Sisters, was animated in her
enthusiasm for Partnerships
with Rotarians of District
6960, which extends as far
south as Naples. The organ-
ization matches students
with Rotarian volunteers, for
one-to-one tutoring in read-
ing comprehension.
"Literacy is not only an
educational issue, it's a social
issue," Faucy said. "It increas-
es self-esteem and increases
a person's ability to achieve
their goals no matter what

those goals may be. Reading
is about life's possibilities."
The next summit is plan-
ned for 9:30-11:30 a.m. on
April 11. Prospective partici-
pants must register. For

Road projects: Traffic is the easy part


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


There was a time when
building a road was a simple
process: Draw a line from
point A to point B, and then
spend some money to bull-
doze through to connect the
dots.
Today, building a road is
much more complex.
Whether a road is widened
or a new road is built, the
process of getting everyone to
agree how it should be done
can be difficult.
"If building roads were
about satisfying traffic issues,
they'd be easy," Sarasota
County Administrator Jim
Ley said recently.
Ley has been involved in
laying out more roads in his
career than he cares to
acknowledge.
"It is the one function of
government which never
seems to end no matter what
you do," he said. "You are
either building new roads,
improving roads or repairing
roads."
Roads require the support
of at least three of five com-
missioners at some point, but
they are often devised by staff
in the Public Works Depart-
ment who closely track
growth in the area and do
studies to see what the traffic
trends are and what they will
be.
Charlotte County Public
Works Director Tom O'Kane
said building a road becomes
more and more complex as
the permitting process has
become the most difficult
part of the process.
"Without a doubt," O'Kane
said. "The cost of right of way
and construction is not a
problem if there is money, but
permitting is out of our
hands."
Many of the planned roads
were chosen and laid out
decades agoi but they don't

shortcut, widening or for Most road projects are ap-
access- the project needs to proved through a county's


Five-Year Capital Improve-
ment Program.
That program creates a
dedicated funding source for
the road through property tax
revenues.
Sarasota and Charlotte
counties also have a series of
projects that are funded
through sales-tax programs.,
Other projects can receive


state and federal funding and;
may be pushed forward when'
that money becomes avail-;
able.
A public works design'
team is then called in to make
the road a reality, either
through outsourcing the
design or doing it in-house.

Vintage car owners help raise funds for music students


By RUSS MOORE
STAFF WRITER
The Peace River Jubilee was
all about music, but as Puma
Gorda residents strolled
through the parking lot of the
Performing Arts Center Sun-
day, they were treated to
some unusual vintage car
sights, as well as musical
sounds. The parking lot was
filled with vintage cars. The
vintage rides were on display
to help benefit music and art
programs for the young peo-
ple of Charlotte County. The
event allowed car buffs to see
some unique rides, and at the
same time judge the event by
contributing money for their
favorite car.
The people's choice was
Seburn Post's 1929 Chevrolet
Phaeton. Seeb's car is a recent
addition to the Southwest
Florida vintage car communi-
ty. "We just bought the car a
couple of months ago," Seeb
told us. Seburn lives in Port
Charlotte and drove his car to
Punta Gorda for the event.
"The 1929 Chevrolet made
history by being the first six
cylinder automobile sold and
produced by Chevy," Seburn
added. Chevrolet advertising
of the time touted the new
addition to the line as "A six in
the price range of the four."
"The straight six engine
194ci engine produced a 26
horsepower," Seburn told us.
"The transmission is a three-
speed."
As most gearheads well tell
you, Fisher Body Company
produced most of Chevrolet's
bodies. "This was the only
1929 Chevrolet model that was
produced by Chevy," Seburn
said. The restoration work on
Seburn's car was done by
Ralph McDonald of
Greenville, Ohio. The result is
a striking green touring car
that looks just like it just drove
off the showroom floor. When
we asked Seeb if he paid a little
more than the $595.00 that the
car originally sold for, he
smiled and slowly nodded his
head.
Touring cars dominated the
1920s, and this crowd-pleas-
ing favorite was no different.
Sitting high on its 20-inch
wheels, it seemed to prove that
the wheel also comes full cir-
cle in the automotive style.
Today's owners of late-model
cars with custom 20-inch
wheels may be surprised to
know they came as standard
equipment on the 1929


Chevrolet Phaeton. "The car
was also the first car that wore
the bowtie that came with four
wheel automatic brakes."
As we reached the end of the
show car line, we approached
another high-riding 1920s
automobile. We were hard-
pressed to identify the car it
wasn't another Chevy or a
Ford. My gearhead brain
strained as I heard the soft
voice of its owner, Bill Sto.ut,
say to another admirer of his
ride, "It's aWillis Sainte Claire."
"The Willis Sainte Claire was
built just north of Detroit in
Michigan; this one is a 1921.
Roadster," Bill said. "The car
originally came with a V8. The
original engine was way ahead
of its time it had overhead
cams. Mechanics of the time
didn't possess the sophistica-
tion to work on these engines.
The only one that I'm aware
exists today is in the Gilmore
museum just north of Kalama-
zoo, Michigan."
"The car is now powered
by a four-cylinder Duesen-
berg that produces 90 horse-
power with a single one-bar-.
rel updraft carburetor," Bill
told us.
The Duesenberg Motor
Company of St. Paul, Minn. is
a fascinating story. The com-
pany, owned by two brothers,
produced engines that have
become racing legends. Fred
and August Duesenberg
founded the company in 1913.
They built an- ingeniously
designed four-cylinder engine
with horizontal valves that
performed magnificently.
Eddie Rickenbacker drove a
Duesenberg-powered car to
10th place at Indianapolis race
in 1914. For many decades to
follow, Duesenberg power
machines always placed
among the front-runners at'
Indianapolis.
Bill and his Willis Sainte
Claire also are an interesting
story. "I bought the car 10
years ago," Bill grins. "When I
* got it, it was in pieces. I spent
years painting, assembling
and working! on it. My wife
even did the upholstery!" We
are sure that every minute that
Bill and his wife spent working
on the car was rewarding as
they' preserved this rolling
piece of automotive history.
Another nameplate you
don't see every day is Packard.
Joseph and Kay Bragantin
were on hand Sunday showing
off their 1937 Packard. The car
brought back memories for


me, as I'm sure it does many
folks whose lives were touched
by this bygone automobile. My
uncle worked at the Detroit
Packard factory. I remember
many stories he told of the leg-
endary carmaker and the rides
we'd take in his smooth-riding
vintage Packard into the
Michigan countryside.
The memories for their car
may not go quite so far back
for Joseph and Kay. "We
brought the car three years
ago in Bristol, Rhode Island,"
Kay told me.
"Our Packard is powered by
a straight eight and sports a
rumble seat and luggage
rack," Joseph said. "That real-
ly attracted me to the car. I
tried to buy it a couple of
times. But Bill, a fellow in
Oakland, sold it to someone
else. Later it came back to
him he called me and I was
able to pick it up. I guess it
was meant to be mine."
Jerry Risely stood next to his
1926 black Model T Ford on
Sunday. You could see he was
justly proud of the car. "I've
had the car for about four
years," Jerry told us. "I picked
it up from a fellow in Sarasota
who has since passed away. I
stay in touch with his wife -
she likes to hear about what's
new with the car and how it is
doing in local shows."
"The four-door sedan was
the most expensive of the
Ford lineup when it was made
in 1926, selling for about
$450," Jerry smiled. "I think
this model was a little more
practical than the coupes I
like it."
Before leaving the show, we
talked a little with Don Milone
and Gene Brumback, who
organized the event. "We have
about 25 cars here today,"
Don told us. "We started orga-
nizing the event back in Sep-
tember. We are raising money
to help the kids to continue to
have music programs."
Want to see more vintage
and late-model cars up close
and personal?
There will be a History of
the Automobile car show at
the Charlotte Sun Saturday
morning, beginning at 10:00
am, March 18, 2006. The Sun
is located at 23170 Har-
borview Road in Port Char-
lotte. The event is open to all
collectors of vintage and late-
model automobiles. There is
no charge to exhibit your car,
but you must R.S.V.P. before
March 17. Music will be pro-


vided by The Jim Owen Trio.
The Super Cruise USA car
and truck show will be held
March 19" at the Charlotte
County Fairgrounds. Over 150

Michigan; this one is a 1921 Roadster.


The car originally came with a V8. The original engine was way ahead of its time it had overhead cams.


The people's choice was Seburn Post's 1929 Chevrolet Phaeton. The 1929 Chevrolet made history by being
the first six cylinder automobile sold and produced by Chevy.


Jerry Risely's 1926 black Model T Ford.


This 1937 Packard is powered by a straight eight and sports a rumble seat and luggage rack.

By JIM MATEJA
CHICAGO TRIBUNE
Q. While looking at Toyota's
enamel blue FJ Cruiser at the
Chicago Auto Show, I noticed
the passenger's side front
bumper fascia was falling off.
For a supposedly rugged
truck, the buffed metal part
was nothing more than a.
piece of tin held on by some
tabs. And, to boot, there Was a
2x4 underneath. Is this Toy-.
ota's idea of ruggedness?
-C.T., Naperville, Ill.
a A. No, this is an example of
a prototype that has made the
rounds of auto shows and-
other public venues and has
been worn to a frazzle. "It's
not a production model,"
stressed Vince Harris, vehicle
merchandising manager for
Toyota in Aurora, Ill.
Q. I read your article about
E85. I own a 2000 GMC Sono-
ma extended cab with a flex-
fuel system and have been
using E85 for almost six
months. I've noticed only a 5
to 10 percent reduction in
mileage, not the 20 to 30 per-
cent mentioned in the article.
I realize E85 isn't the. solution
to our oil problems, but it
could provide a cushion until
a better answer is found.
-D.W, Joliet, Ill.
A. The problem we have
with E85 is the same we had
* when regular unleaded gas
went to a 10 percent ethanol

blend. When you dilute the
gas, you get less mileage, and
whether it's 5 percent or 30
percent, it's trying to achieve
energy conservation by burn-
ing more fuel. In some cases.
the fuel costs more than the
10 percent blend, so you
spend'more and consume
more.
Farmers will argue it gives
.hem.a needed source of
income because ethanol can
be produced from corn. But
the ones who make the most
money are the ethanol pro-
ducers.
Q. Can vehicles that run on
E85 also run on normal "E10"
gas? Any problems switching
between the two? If we were
planning aWestern U.S. road
trip and gas prices were low,
we might use E10 for the.
mileage. When prices are high
and we're just "driving around
town," we could switch to E85.
-M.J., Arlington Heights, Ill.
A. Vehicles designed to run
on E85 automatically adjust to
E10. So you can switch at will,
as the article noted.
Q. Who would use E85 based
on increased consumption?
-J.Z., Chicago
A. Those who believe it is a
cleaner-burning fuel that
would reduce exhaust emis-
sions. You'd also have to think
farmers would be interested in.
promoting the fuel.

Symphony seeking conductor


for FUN


-raising


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR.


Wanted: symphony conductor.
Requirements for position:
Charisma and talent for fund-rais-
ing. Musical ability would be a plus
but is not necessary to the job.
Should be willing to relocate out of
town in the event things do not go
well. Duties include wearing formal
attire while waving a stick in the
general direction of a group of seat-
ed musicians. The stick-waving
must be accomplished while candi-
date is standing on a raised plat-
form. Agility is necessary to prevent
one's falling from said platform and
possibly injuring a real musician.
Running speed could prove helpful


(see fourth sentence). The person
selected will be required to conduct
one piece of music during the Ven-
ice Symphonys March 25 Outdoor
Pops Concert in Blalock Park. The
concert will begin at 4p.m.
Benefits package: Remuneration
will be in the form of gentle clapping
unless candidate brings his or her
own cheering section. Candidates
must be self-insured and will likely
be granted a life-long vacation from
conducting after the conclusion of
the March 25 performance.
Selection will be determined by
the tally of Ivotes jammed into an
over-stuffed ballot box.
As this issile of the Venice Gon-
dolier Sun goes to press, there are
five candidates for the job.

downtown Venice, is up for the challenge.




.., ,k . . ', '.. A f *


Vee Garry-Chiulli, star of "Vee on Venice," is campaigning hard to be the
guest maestro of the Venice Symphony at its March 25 Pops Concert in
Blalock Park.


In alphabetical order they are:
Dean Calamaras, paleontologist
and Mayor of Venice
Kathy Crisman, former corn
husker, Waterway Park volunteer
and co-owner of Dick's Shoes
Vee Garry-Chiulli, beauty queen,
writer, fashion consultant and star
of "Vee on Venice," on BLAB TV
Dr. R. Scott Thompson, fly fisher-
man, English car enthusiast and
dentist
Robert Vedder, prominent rose
grower and publisher
"It's a Walter Mitty dream," Cala-
maras said. "Everyone wants to con-
duct a rousing rendition of a Sousa
march. We are never too old to
dream."
In his third term as mayor, Cala-
maras was a nine-year member of
Venice City Council and also has
served on the city's Planning Com-
mission, Board of Zoning Appeals
and Parks and Recreation Advisory
Board. As an amateur paleontolo-
gist, Calamaras enjoys giving talks to
school children and civic groups
about prehistoric Florida.
He has been involved in a num-
ber of civic groups including Royal
Venice, which offers financial assis-
tance to eligible first-time home-
buyers. He also has served on the
boards of the Little League, the
Pinebrook Homeowners Associ-
ation and the Suncoast Humane
Society. He currently is a member of
the board of the Venice Regional
Medical Center.
Calamaras and his wife Barbara
have lived inVenice since 1978, and
have two children, Dana and Dean,
and two grandchildren.
"I think that Make Me a Maestro
is a great newwayto encourage peo-
ple to support the Venice Sym-
phony," Crisman said.
Raised in Nebraska, Crisman and
her husband Bruce came to Venice
in 1978 with their daughter Nicole.
They had two sons after moving to
Venice, where they own Dick's
Shoes. She has been on the board of
Venice Area Beautification Inc.
(VABI) and currently is on the board
and a past president of Venice
MainStreet. She chairs its November
Art Fest committee and volunteers
in several other capacities with the
organization.
Garry-Chiulli is one of two candi-
dates for the job of guest conductor
who claim some experience for the
job.
"When I was a little girl growing
up in the big band era, my mom
would excuse me from school to
take me to all of the stage shows in
Pittsburgh at the old Stanley
Theater," Garry-Chiulli said. "Then
when we were at home in the
evenings, while Mom sat on her
rocker peeling apples for us, my
brothers sat on the floor coloring or
drawing, while I stood in front of our
glass-covered book cases and hold-
ing a ruler watched my every move-
ment as I conducted the band that
was lilting music from our little
Emerson radio. So maybe that is
why I would really love to conduct a
real band like the Venice Sym-
phony!"
Now the star of her own TV show
on BLAB-TV "Vee on Venice," the
former contestant in the Mrs.
Florida contest was a teacher, a col-
lege professor and journalist. She
currently is the agenda consultant
for the two area Stein Mart stores
and is active at Epiphany Cathedral,
where she serves as a lector, a mem-
ber of the church council and as
reporter and editor of its paper. On
and off her TV show she is an ardent
supporter of the greater Venice area.
The maestro wannabe is married to
Larry Chiulli, who produces and
often films her TV show.
Thompson is the other candidate
with a musical background. He
played the cornet in his middle
school band but "showed great apti-
tude in academics and athletics."
"I am participating in this project
because I love supporting the Venice
Symphony," he said. "We have a
wonderful resource with this sym-

phony and it is a key part of what
makes our town really special. It is a
unique feature that very few other
communities have access to. I want
to help the symphony any way that I
can, and this contest lets me talk
about it to all of my patients and
BOTH of my friends."
Thompson, the youngest mae-
stro contender, said he, thought he
was brought into the race as a polit-
ical move because he represents the
37 Venetians who are under 45 in
age.
"It is time for our voices to unite
and be heard," he said.

his dental drill if they won't vote for

Spices can do more



than flavor yourfoq


SUZY COHEN, R.PH.
COLUMNIST

Q: I was wondering what the
medical benefits of some house-
hold spices are? I notice that
they are often sold in stores in
supplement form. R.W.
Gastonia, N.C.
A: Supplements are man-
made tablet forms of the nat-
urally occurring spice, but
they don't contain all the nat-
ural ingredients of the spice
they are meant to mimic.
Many popular drugs are,
derived directly from ancient
plants, algae and fungi. Many
spices contain powerful.
medically useful properties
and have anti-inflammatory,
anti-nmicrobial, anti-cancer
and anti-aging effects on the
body. Here are some of the
most important:
Turmeric: This is a cousin
of ginger, another popular
spice from India. You find it
in lots of curry dishes.
Turmeric has the power to
reduce swelling, kill infec-
tious bugs and improve heart
health. Because it scavenges
cancer-causing cells in the
body, it can reduce your risk
of cancer. Some people claim
it helps with psoriasis and
arthritis because it' controls
inflammation. A clinical
study at UCLA suggests that
it can slow the progression of
Alzheimer's disease, but there
are no studies yet comparing

To avoid '
M 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.
Is !< At Twin Palms Chiropractic Health Center we ,
i ,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
and injury when people play hard. Call us at 941-

help you take control of your health. We're
located at 1214-C Venice Ave. East. We offer
massage therapy and have 4 licensed massage

P.S. Ask the chiropractor to suggest
strengthening and flexibility exercises that will
help you better cope with work stresses.

used frequently for baking
breads and pies. An essential
oil is derived after steam dis-
tillation. The woodsy, aro-
matic oil is used externally
for assorted ailments, includ-
ing joint pain, rheumatoid
arthritis, constipation and
fatigue. Sometimes nutmeg
is found in massage oils
because it alleviates muscle
aches and arthritis pain.
Warning: Never take essential
oils, which are designed for
aromatherapy, internally.
Ingestion can be toxic.
Cinnamon: This warm
spice is derived from the bark
of a certain evergreen tree. It
is used most commonly in
. desserts, pastries, chai and
condiments such as bar-
beque sauce. Cinnamon has
some activity against infec-
tious bugs, so it could, theo-
retically, reduce your risks for
colds; and it may be useful
for bloatirig, gas, nausea and
diarrhea. Cinnamon rolls
may not be a cure for dia-
betes, but studies have .
shown that one teaspoon of
cinnamon per day might
reduce blood sugar and
triglycerides.
Garlic: Minced, lightly
cooked garlic is better than
the powdered spice or sup-
plement form. Garlic is very
strong; eating too much can
irritate the digestive tract and
give you bad breath. It's
Mother Nature's antibiotic
and is always found in fresh
chicken soup. Garlic is
thought to help normalize
cholesterol ratios, dilate
blood vessels (thereby reduc-
ing blood pressure), and sup-
port.hearthealth. Alsogarlicq
works to maintain normal


blood clotting by preventing
clumping of blood platelets.
It's better than aspirin,
according to some.
:Cayenne pepper: Believe
it or not, the hot chilipepper
,is most frequently used to
treat digestive problems like
stomachaches, cramping and
gas. Since it creates ':heat" in
the body, it may help bum fat
and reduce appetite. Others
claim that a cup of cayenne
tea will normalize blood
pressure and deliver oxy-
genated blood to a dying
heart. (Tea recipe: one tea-
spoon cayenne pepper per
cup of water.) The main
ingredient is capsaicin,
which is sold in ointment
form..People apply it to the
skin to treat diabetic neu-
ropathy, psoriasis, muscle
pain from fibromyalgia, and
nerve pain after shingles and
arthritis pain.

How to help Haiti j
00, ."'.


BY NATHAN VAN COOPS
GUEST WRITER


At the end of March, I will
be traveling to Haiti with a
friend of mine who runs a
nonprofit organization called
Help Haiti Now.
Haiti is the poorest country
in the Western Hemisphere
and its people are desperately
in need of aid.
Drinkable water is a huge
problem on the island.
Medical care is hard to come
by and education is a con-
stant challenge with a system
where the impoverished chil-
dren are required to pay to
attend in order to fund the
meager teacher salaries.
Help Haiti Now has found-
ed and is operating a medical
clinic in the mountainous
area of Goyovier, where a
Haitian doctor now sees 50-
100 patients a week.
The organization is also
funding a school in Goyovier
by providing supplies and
paying teachers salaries so
500 children there can attend
school.


In the coastal community
of 87th Place, Help Haiti Now
provides food and water by
buying and delivering rice,
beans, oil, soap and water
barrels. 87th Place has no
water and the most urgent
project is to build an above-
ground water cistern to col-
lect rain water for cooking
and drinking. This will cost
about $1,500. Malnourish-
ment is a huge problem;
especially for the children.
The medical clinics are
also in need of many supplies
we take for granted here, such
as ibuprofen and stomach
medicines like Mylanta tab-
lets.
They simply do not have
the access.
Help Haiti Now is collect-
ing the following items to take
down at the end of the
month: Multivitamins (for
children and adults), ibupro-
fen (Motrin, Advil), children
and infant ibuprofen, stom-
ach medicine (Pepcid A/C,
Zantac/Ranatidine, Mylanta
tablets), antifungal cream,
hydrocortisone cream, anti-


biotic cream, Benadryl tab-
lets/capsules. Jeans and ten- '
nis shoes are also welcome, as '
are funds to help purchase '
any of the above or to help ,-
with the water cistern project.
Help Haiti Now is a nonprofit
501(c) (3) organization and all
contributions are tax de-' .
ductible.
Donations can be mailed
to Help Haiti Now, RO. Box

SOUTH NEWS


SVCA membership

drive under way


ELLEN HILLSTROM


This year the South Venice
Civic Association decided to
conduct a two-month-long
membership drive during
March and April. It is a unique
plan and I think it will work.
You may want to try some-
thing similar in your volun-
tary homeowners association.
The number one reason
people do not support their
association is because they
are not aware of its benefits,
With that in mind, the
SVCA membership commit-
tee put together a lovely new-
member packet of informa-
tion.
They compiled a list of new
residents who have moved
into our subdivision within
the last three months. They


also compiled a list of current
members in their own neigh-
borhood with a list of "future"
members and placed them all
in zones.
The zone captains are
delivering the lists and benefit
packets to each of the mem-
ber volunteers, who in turn
will drop off information and
follow up with a visit or phone
call. Then watch the applica-
tions come pouring in!
By calculating the percent-
ages, the goal of 200 new
members within the two-
month period should be easi-
ly accomplished.
Speaking of calculations,
the school board referendum
is coming up for your vote
next week, March 14.
Within our South Venice
subdivision, we have 10,023
registered voters as of Dec. 31.
In the last election, voter
turnout countywide was 65
percent. If our residents
turned out, by percentages we
would be a voting bloc of
6,521 votes. That could make
the difference between pas-
sage or failure of the referen-
dum. (Candidates in the
September and November
elections, please take note.)
Good citizens support
their neighborhood associa-
tions. Good citizens vote in
elections. Go do your duty.

PEZ hobbyist dispenses more than candy


BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR
Ron Jones wanted to do
something to help Hurricane
Katrina victims, so he turned
to a bunch of"PEZHeads."
Selling quirky candy dis-
pensers, he was able to offer
hurricane victims some sweet
relief.
Jones networked with oth-
er "PEZHeads" people who
collect those candy dispen-
sers to raise money.
The North Port resident
designed a special PEZ candy
dispenser to commemorate
the deadly hurricane. The dis-
penser has a globe on top
with the date and time .that
Katrina hit, and has the leg-
end "Friends helping friends"
on the back.
Jones knew if he could get a
dispenser like this made, he
could sell them to other col-
lectors and make some
money for the hurricane's vic-
tims. 4
Jones contacted the PEZ
Candy Co., headquartered in
Austria, to ask it to make the
special dispenser.
"They told me they, would
do it and not only that, they
would create some specially-
wrapped candy to go with it,"
Jones said.
The company made two
variations of Jones's design,
one with a black stem and
one in red. It then. shipped
about 750 dispensers and
candy to him to sell.
PEZ didn't charge Jones a
dime either to make or to ship
the dispensers.
"It cost them more to ship
them to me overnight," Jones
said.
He said it took 28 days
from the time he sent PEZ his
design' until he received the-
shipment of dispensers.
Onto the Internet
As soon as he received
them, he started selling the
limited-edition dispensers to


collectors he knew, as well as
online through PEZ collector
groups. Other than the post-
age cost, all of the money
Jones collected for the unusu-
al dispensers was designated
for Katrina victims. Within
three months, he sold every
one.
Recently, Jones kept his
promise to Katrina victims.
He presented a check for
$8,298,90 to the Rev. John
Cross, senior pastor of South
Biscayne Baptist Church in
North Port.
The money will go to the,
Southern Baptist Convention
Disaster Relief fund to assist
victims.
The church's relief fund has
been paying to feed people,
care for children and help vic-
tims find places to live in the
wake of the devastating
storm.
"I am impressed with what
one man can do to help oth-
ers, when he sets his mind to
it," said Cross in accepting the
check from Jones. "People
often wonder what they can
do to help: well, this is an
example of the difference one
person can make."
Accidental collector
Jones said he began col-
lecting PEZ dispensers almost
by accident.
"My wife and I are avid col-
lectors of lots of things," he
said. "We had a big collection
of Fisher-Price playsets that
we took to a toy convention in
North Carolina one time. We
had four tables full of these
things. One guy came along at
11 a.m. the first morning and
bought up everything in our
collection. Everything!"
That left them with noth-
ing to sell for the rest of the'
convention. ..so.Jone started'
looking around for something
else he could do that week-
end. He happened upon a
man who had a box of assort-
ed PEZ dispensers for sale.
Jones bought the box, and a

THE KEY: Excellent | Good Pyy | Fair TI Poor



Aquamarine"


BY CHRIS HEWITT
GUEST WRITER


The appeal of 'Aqua-
marine" is identical to the
appeal of "The Sisterhood of
Traveling Pants": smart, con-
fident girls who are a little
out of the mainstream" ahd"d
don't care.
Set at a beach resort, you
could think of '"Aquamarine"
as "Sisterhood of the Trav-
eling Fins," with three char-
acters who are about to be
separated (one is moving to
Australia) but who pack their
last days together with ad-


ventures.
The adventures begin
when Claire (Emma Roberts,
niece of Julia) and Hailey
(Joanna"Jojo" Levesque) find
a mermaid (Sara Paxton) in
the pool. Which means they
have to deal with the mer-
'itald" 'the moving-away
thing and a cute lifeguard
named Ray, who is blond
and apparently the winner of
a lowest-possible-waistline-
on-a-swimsuit contest.
There's nothing original
about '"Aquamarine," which
owes a fish-out-of-water debt
to "Splash" (intriguingly, it's


just the first of this year's two
mermovies "The Lady in
the Water" is on the way).
But there's a sense that the
script understands how
tweenage girls think and,"
what interests them (or
maybe it's j r pe
interests tweene l s):
romance, not sex.
Their innocent crush on
Ray, for instance, is adorable,
as are their not-quite-
successful attempts to pick
up dating techniques from
the sages at Seventeen and
CosmoGirl.
The likable Roberts and


Levesque, meanwhile, are a
team around whom more
movies could be built.
Levesque has a practical in-
telfigence, and Roberts does
lots of things well.
She already has great
tif and,sa'i'sh'idemon-
strates in perhaps two too
many crying scenes, an
ability to underplay big
emotional moments.
I suspect Roberts is des-
tined for big things and that,
when she gets them, she
will have no reason to look
back and be embarrassed by
this step along the way.

Cache
In director Michael Haneke's typical
style, the film'begins with the comfort-
able but complacent life of a bourgeois
European family. However, someone has
been videotaping their home from the
street outside. The unknown voyeur mails
the tapes accompanied by strange,
violent drawings to Georges (Daniel
Auteuil), Anne (Juliette Binoche) and
their son Pierrot (Lester Makedonsky). As
the "gifts" become more personal, and
begin to appear the work of someone
who knows him, Georges begins to fear
that he is being punished for wronging
an Algerian boy, Majid (Maurice
Bdnichou), at the height of France's colo-
nial occupation of that North African
nation. Wracked with paranoia and rage,
Georges suspects his former friend is
taking revenge, but when he tracks him
down we soon begin to question who is
victimizing whom. Haneke is a master of
exposing the way political conflicts and
prejudices irreparably damage the psy-
che and the potential for human intimacy
and communication, and CACHE deftly


incorporates questions of personal
responsibility, justice and the racism of
France's past into an incredibly gripping
and tightly-wound psychological thriller.
In French with English subtitles.

HOROSCOPE March 10-16


ARIES (March 21-April
19)I The less you try to
4':" impress, the more you
succeed. Stop worrying what
someone thinks of you, and
just ask. For many, an "ex"
returns. Alimony payments and
financial obligations are
reduced through better com-
munication.

-,. TAURUS (April 20-May
20). Keep trying to
NWW connect with that per-
son who is hard to reach. This
one has a dire need for help,
acknowledgement and love
(don't we all?). But it takes a ,
special person (like you) to
respond effectively to the
needs of others.

GEMINI (May 21-June
21). You are intrigued
by the power of the
unseen. Know that it affects
you even more than it affects
others because you are so sen-
sitive. Also know that you actu-
ally can "see" it, hear it and
name it. Keep trying.

CANCER (June 22-July
22). Researchers say
that visualization is
helpful in learning to do some-
thing new. The mind behaves
as though it's actually engaged

nique at work. "Go there" men-

cliches. But every situation is. -J
different.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-
Nov. 21). Don't worry
about coming upwith
ideas. The strong ones will
chase you down until you
adopt them. Spending time
with a Gemini or an Aquarius
doesn't hurt, either!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21). There is a
strong indication of
growth in areas of work per-
haps a new job or promotion.
Though you are capable of sur-
passing the expectations of
others, this matters less than
achieving success in your own
eyes.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
!j. i 'Jan. 19). Romance
finds you while you
are doing what you really
enjoy. Get in the act with ,
enthusiasm for your day-to-
day happenings. Creativity is

Rochester, is a 17th-century poet who
found posthumous success. He was
known for his womanizing ways, drinking
and unruly behavior. This behavior helped
him to an early grave, most likely from
syphilis. Along the way, Wilmot wrote
some arguably brilliant poetry that was
not appreciated until after his death.The
film looks at his life and exposes the
dichotomy of his vagrancy and genius.

The Passenger
.For decades, Michelangelo Antonio's
existential drama has been nearly impos-
sible to track down, but thanks to Sony
Pictures Classics, The Passsenger finally
gets the exposure that it deserves (mak-
ing'this event even more noteworthy is
the fact that the re-released version con-
tains Antonioni's preferred 126-minute
cut). In an impressively low-key perfor-
mance, Jack Nicholson plays David
Locke, a reporter who is researching a
story in the North African desert. But
when he discovers the dead body of a
mysterious man he had just recently
befriended, a strange compulsion over-
takes him. Passing off the dead man as
himself, Locke-assumes the identity of
Martin Knight and travels to Barcelona on
a dangerous mission. Once there, he
finds himself falling for a beautiful girl
(Maria Schneider) as he drifts further and
further away from the man he once was.
It isn't long before he realizes just how
much danger he is in, but at that point, it
might be too late to turn back. 119 min.
