a "yes" vote in favor ofthe referen-

Good morning, Gondolier
Sun subscriber,
ED MARA


more registered voters than the
2002 referendum, almost 20,000
fewer turned out for the vote.
Twenty-five percent of registered
voters turned out, versus 35 per-
cent in 2002.
The margin of victory was five
percent less than in 2002, but that
didn't dampen the spirits of
Citizensfor Better Schools, whose
supporters showed up at the
YMCA in Sarasota to celebrate the
victory. CBS chair Carl Weinrich,
who heads the Y, said $312,000
was raised in the winning effort.
In spite of small pockets of


opposition, some among the
teacher ranks early on, no orga-
nized opposition surfaced leading
up to the referendum.
Noticeably absent from the fes-
tivities was a majority of Sarasota
County school board members.
Aside from Todd, John Lewis was
the only other board member in
attendance.
Asked if he was relieved the
campaign was over, Sarasota
County superintendent Gary
Norris replied he's just getting
started.
"It's a relief that the vote is over,


but at the same time it's a huge
burden, knowing that we have
this set of expectations," Norris
said.
Norris called CBS "an incredi-
ble (turn-out-the-vote) machine"'
and thanked Weinrich and sup-
porters throughout the county.
During the campaign CBS suc-
ceeded in getting all locally elect-
ed bodies to endorse the referen-
dum.

2ity calls for review of VHA deal


Council members are concerned about details of
the business deal between Picerne Development
and South County's only public housing complex.


BY JJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

The federal government
needs to "take a second look"
at the deal between Venice
Housing Authority and Pi-
ceme Development, accord-
ing to City Manager Marty
Black.
City council members
agree.
On Tuesday, they autho-
rized staff to file a formal
request asking the U.S.
Department of Housing and
Urban Development to re-
view contracts and agree-
ments between VHA and
Picerne, the company hired
to rebuild and handle opera-
tions if South County's only
public housing complex wins
Low-Income Housing Tax
Credit funding.
VHA applied Feb. 1 for
Low-Income Housing Tax
Credit financing with the
Florida Housing Finance
Corp. It will find out in August
if tax credits will be awarded
to finance Phase 1 of its rede-
velopment project at a cost of
$11.3 million.


"That contract we're talk-
ing about doesn't pass the
smell test," council member
John Simmonds said Tuesday
Night.
Nearly ev-
ery aspect of
the develop- *
ment deal has ,. 7
been ques- ."
tioned, in-
cluding the
land-lease
agreement,
relocation of Black
residents,
quality of design and whether
the new units would be
priced too high for poor resi-
dents.
There are 50 low-income
units at Grove Terrace Apart-
mrents, and the proposed
replacement to be known
as Brookside Village would
have as many as 144, pending
city approval and state
financing.
"The concerns aren't so
much with the housing au-
thority (members), as it was
with their previous executive
director," Black said of his
request.


Review welcomed
Peter Lopez had already
announced his intention to
leave that job at the end of
* March to seek a higher-pay-
ing position. He departed five
weeks early, the same day
newspaper articles revealed a
plan to use evictions to lower
the number of low-income
residents at Grove Terrace
Apartments so developers
could make more money.
Internal e-mail memos be-
tween Lopez and developers
discussed reducing the num-
ber of low-income tenants to
35. VHA has 50 low-income
apartments, but Picerne
wanted only 35 of the 144 re-
built apartments for the poor,
saying it wasn't financially
feasible otherwise.
VHA chair Richard Appell
said the housing authority
board would have killed the
development deal if Picerne
failed to have at least 50 low-
income apartments. Lopez
practiced "poor judgment" in
his e-mail comments, Appell
said.
Appell said he welcomes
the review by HUD.
"That's fine. They can re-
view it," Appell said. "We have
to submit everything to HUD.

hurricane


shelter list

BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Faced with a reality that many of the peo-
ple living in South County live in a hurricane
evacuation zone,, the county is now able to
designate the Venice Community Center as an
official hurricane shelter.
The center can hold up to 700 people and is
one of four new shelters identified for the
upcoming hurricane season now that the
American Red Cross has approved the build-
ing as a viable shelter.
The other new shelters are Bishop Nevins
Academy, Phillipi Shores Elementary School
andWilkinson Elementary School.
Sarasota County now has 17 shelters,
including four pet-friendly shelters, which
can accommodate more than 26,000 people.
This was the information provided Thesday
to the county commissioners by Emergency
Services Executive Director David Harrawood
and Emergency Management Chief Ed Mc-
Crane.
"'lt is never too early to begin preparing to
plan," Harrawood said.
Since the end of the record-breaking 2005
hurricane season, the emergency services
team has worked closely with the school dis-
trict, the Red Cross, the four municipalities
within the county and many others to come
up with a unified plan.
As the plan has developed, McCrane, who
has been in his post for five months, said there
has been a high level of cooperation to create an
updated and more user-friendly All Hazards
Guide, which will be distributed in May.
Hturicane season runs from June 1 to Nov 30.
The new guide has a larger map with bigger
lertering and clearer numbering of shelter
locations.
The biggest change is that there are now
only four evacuation zones, which match a
corresponding threat from a hurricane. For
example, people living in Evacuation Zone A
would be asked to evacuate if a Category 1
hurricane threatened.
"We really wanted to avoid any confusion
with storm categories," McCrane said.

Bypass design workshop

set for Thursday


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Anyone interested in the
latest information on the
Venice Bypass should proba-
bly attend a community
workshop Thursday.
The Florida Department of
Transportation is having the
workshop at 5:30 p.m., at the
Venice Community Center,
326 S. Nokomis Ave., to give
the community an update on
the status of .the widening
project.
FDOT officials will also be
showing alternative designs
for the bypass as a possible
cost-cutting effort.
At this point, the project
has been pushed back be-
yond the FDOT Five-Year
Work Program and would
cost about $60 million in its
current configuration.
The widening includes a
stretch of road near Center
Road to where the bypass re-
joins with U.S. 41 north of
Venice.
FDOT District 1 Secretary
Stanley Cann said the goal is
to reduce the right of way to
lessen the impact on business
along the road.
The current estimate is for

about $72 million for right-of-
way purchases and another
$32 million for construction
costs. With the rapidly
increasing costs of fuel, labor
and supplies, the final price
tag may be much higher.
Cann said the workshop
will not offer a date for the
start of construction, since no
money is in place for the work
to be done.
The widening was original-
ly designed in the late 1980s
when there were fewer busi-
nesses along the road and the
impacts would have been
less.
Fast forward nearly 20
years and the widening has
not begun and the existing
plans would mean severely
impacting dozens of busi-
nesses
FDOT will offer two alter-
native designs Thursday and
again before Venice City
Council and the Sarasota
County Commission later in
the month.
The first option would re-
duce the right-of-way costs to
$31 million; the second would
reduce the costs to $21.7 mil-
lion.

THIS WEEK IN VENICE HISTORY


City work irks some

From the Feb. 20,1975, Venice Gondolier Sun


BY PAUL THAYER
STAFF WRITER

Work continued this week
on two major city projects
which have raised the ire of
motorists and beach-goers
alike, among both area resi-
dents and winter visitors.
Early this month, the city
began work on the two long-
delayed projects: the restora-
tion of the municipal beach
and the replacement of
storm sewer mains in the
downtown area.
This week, dump trucks
and a bulldozer roared along
the city's public beach,
dumping tons of new\ sand
and pushing it onto the
shoreline, while curious or
disgruntled beach-goers and


seagulls looked on.
Traffic crawled in the vi-
cinity of the storm drain pro-
ject at north Nokomis Ave-
nue and Tampa Avenue,
which was barred from vehic-
ular use last week.
Both projects have been
delayed by a snarl of red tape,
lack of funds and a recent
shuffle in two city govern-
ment posts.
Now that the city has the
necessary funds, a new di-
rector of public works and
a newly-hired city engineer,
the projects are underway.
The city asked for state
funds to repair the badly
eroded public beach last
summer. The state Depart-
ment of Natural Resources
released $37,275 for the pro-

tract for the beach work
was let to Morrison Trucking
shortly thereafter. Total cost
of the project is estimated at
$67,850.
Director of Public Works
Larry Heath said the work
began this month because
he was given the go-ahead
by city council.
"When they say go we
go," Heath said.
Plans call for the addition
of more than 25,000 cubic

been lending a hand lately.
No erosion has occurred for
the last few months and the
beach has actually grown in
size.
At this time last year,
though, things were much
different. Erosion was be-
coming an increasingly sig-
nificant problem, and city
officials feared the loss of the
municipal beach.
Later, in June, a storm did,
further damage, robbing the
beach of tons of sand. Motels,
condominiums and other
structures along Venice beach
were damaged, and the picnic
pavilion at the city b'each,,.s
so battered it had to be
demolished and removed.


Scientists now are able to
predict the intensity of up-
coming storms.
And maybe you missed
the report that said storms
in our near-future will be 30
to 50 percent stronger than
usual.
It's solar storms Tropical
Bob is addressing here.
These come in 11-year
cycles and peak activity will
begin about the time this
year's hurricane season ends.
Intense solar storms can
disrupt or ruin satellites and
electrical equipment. We
could be without electricity,
television and radio, GPS and
cell phones for an indetermi-
nate time after a bad one.
That sure sounds familiar,

Council chops down height study by consultant


Members question legitimacy of proposal and
planning company's role as Venice's consultant.


BY J J. ANDREWS,
ASSISTANT EDITOR'

"This" 20-page report is
going to set you right back to
page zero.".
Those were the words of
resident Don O'Connell, criti-
cizing Venice City Council for
considering an $11,190 con-
tract with consultant Wade-
Trim to study the economic
and community impacts of
35-foot height restrictions.
Council members appeared
to agree as they voted 6-1
to deny the contract and
search for other planning
consultants. Council member
John Simmonds voted in
favor of the contract, saying the
study needed to be done.
But the conversation ap-
peared to have an even
broader impact, as many
council members criticized
the six-digit contracts granted
to Wade-Trim as Venice's urb-
an .planning consulting firm.
Council members said Wade-
Trim doesn't appear to under-
stand Venice's architectural
history, and they've been dis-
appointed in their work.
"They're just going to get
$11,000 and go ka-Ching all
the way to the bank. ... I
don't see us
getting effec-
tive informa-
tion from
Wade-Trim,"
said council
member Rick
Tacy, echoing.
the com-
ments of Vicki
Simmonds Taylor, John
Simmonds


and John Moore.
The idea of denying its
$137,155 comprehensive
plan contract even came, up,
b though City Manager MartM

tion would ptii Venice at-risk
of missing state-mandated
deadlines.this.year., Tuesday's
comprehensive plan contract
is an extension of the original
$75,000 contract Wade-Trim,
was awarded in 2004.
Council approved the
deal, but said Venice needs
to start shopping for a new
consultant on future studies.
Simmonds suggested the
height study nearly a year
ago, but Tuesday's contract
was the first time the idea
had resurfaced. Council
members said any future
proposals must include pub-
lic meetings; resident opin-
ions and detailed analysis.
A one-day visit with plan-
ning staff at a cost of $11,190,
as proposed by Wade-Trim,
isn't enough.
"I can talk to staff," Moore
said. "The fact of not talking
to the public is ludicrous.
This is flawed from the begin-
ning."
Offshore ban
fails at council
Council members wouldn't
even take* a vote on a letter
endorsing the "Permanent
Protection of Florida Act of
2006," which would prohibit
offshore oil drilling off the
coast of Florida in the Gulf of
Mexico.
Taylor motioned to ap-
prove the letter, and then re-
ceived silent stares from the
rest of the council members.
The letter would have op-
posed the 2007-12 Offshore
Drilling Plan for the Gulf of
.Mexico, which includes a
proposal to give Louisiana
authority over portions of
Florida waters.
Vice Mayor Fred Hammett
said he couldn't support a
permanent ban on drilling


for oil in the gulf.

council Tuesday's agenda:

ing only passed by a 5-2 vote,
with Simmonds and Mayor
Dean Calamaras voting
against this rezone within


the Historic Apartment Dis-
trict. The property would go
from 13 units to 18 units
an acre, and the proposed
condominium would be
four stories with maximum
heights of 54 feet. All other
existing buildings are 31 feet
or less. The 1.3 acres of land is
along Park Boulevard, Me-
nendez Street and Palmetto
Court. Ten workforce hous-
ing apartment units, two
duplex houses and a home

would be replaced by 23
condominium units that
start at $720,000 and top out
at $1.5 million. "The (higher)
density won't lower the cost
of housing," the mayor .said.
"We're increasing density for
million-dollar houses. ... I
honestly can't support this."
Sharky's expansion -
Council members were ap-
prehensive about architects
with Sharky's On The Pier
restaurant requesting one-


on-one meet-
ings to review
expansion
plans. The
beachfront
restaurant is
on ,airport-
owned land
and is leased
Calamaras from the city.
Its rent pays
for Venice Municipal Fishing
Pier and airport operations.
Any improvements to the.


building must first be ap-
proved by city council, mak-
ing members reluctant to
meet individually with the
owners. "Whatever they want
would be better said in a pub-
lic meeting with a record,"
said Tacy, to the approval of
council members. Sharky's
will be asked to do a presen-
tation in front of council. The
restaurant paid more than
$250,000 in rent to the city in
2004.

East Venice Avenue Community Plan endorsed


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER
There are no easy
answers when it comes to
creating a community plan
that makes everyone happy
while allowing developers
to achieve their vision and
homeowners to maintain
their privacy, officials said.
The Sarasota County
Planning Commission held
its second meeting Thurs-
day to discuss some of the
details of the preliminary
East Venice Avenue Plan
and. agreed to endorse the
plan with several recom-
mendations about how the
final ordinance should read.
The boundaries of the.
planning area are Jacaranda
Boulevard to the west,


North River Road to the
east, Interstate 75 to the
north, and one.block south
of East Venice Avenue to the
south.
County commissioners
imposed a temporary mora-
torium on zoning changes
in the planning area pend-
ing completion of the plan.
Tate Taylor, a principal
planner for the county, said
county staff needed guid-
ance from the board on
where to go with the plan
before it is formally present-
ed to the county commis-
sioners in a few weeks.
The basic plan calls for dif-
ferent guidelines for the north
and south sides of East Venice
Avenue.
For the north side of the
area, there is an established


grid system of streets that
lend themselves to having
blocks.
Anne Merrill of AMDS
Inc., a consultant for the
county, said the idea is to
create a sense of communi-
ty and to link neighboring
properties so people will
not need to use Venice
Avenue to get basic services.
The board was interested
in creating a transitional
zoning area so new devel-
opment could accommo-
date what is already there,
and in making sure neigh-
bors could continue to have
a say in what comes in, but
that no one neighbor -
who might be opposed to a
specific development -
could hold up the process
completely.


Another look
The idea of creating a plan
came about when residents
and officials realized there
was a wave of development
with little organization.
The county held a series of
three public workshops to get
a better feel for what was
needed to have "smart
growth" in the neighborhood.
The commissioners tried
to reassure the community
members, many of whom
participated in the public
hearings and planning meet-
ings, that when the plan is
implemented it will not
change the zoning on any-
one's property.
The neighborhood plan
will not trump the county's
comprehensive plan, but it
will offer more community


input into what will be in the
area in the future.
Many homeowners want
to remain on their agricultur-
ally zoned property without
being forced out by big devel-
opers who might want to
build large residential devel-
opments.
One item that the board
brought up repeatedly is the
concern that the plan was
based on the response to a sur-
vey of about 30 homeowners.
Merrill said that each of the
workshops had more than 60
people at them, and the idea
for the plan was based on the
input of everyone, not just the
surveys.
Taylor said each of the
board's suggestions would be
added to the plan in the mar-
gins, so the county commis-


sioners will be able to see the
original plan versus what the
planning commission would
like the final ordinance to be.
The county commission-
ers will hear the same propos-
al and make their own sug-
gestions at a similar public
hearing.
County staff will then draft
an ordinance incorporating
the suggestions from the
community, the planning
commission and the county
commission. The entire ordi-
nance will then need county
commission approval before
it goes into effect.
Along with their recom-
mendations, the planning
board forwarded a request to
be able to review the final
ordinance before it is formal-
ly approved.


Snook Haven to operate as usual for the time being


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


Today will be a day of rest
for Snook Haven. Tomorrow,
the Old Florida icon will be
back open and under new
ownership.
"We expect to be open for
normal business on Thurs-
day," John McCarthy, Sarasota
County general manager for
parks and recreation, told
county commissioners Tues-
day.


The sale of the property
from the owner, Sandy Al-
ston, to the county formally
closes today, which means
there will only be one idle day
for the 2.2-acres on the My-
akka River at the eastern end
of Venice Avenue. It was built
in 1948 and has been owned
byAlston for the past 18years.
Recent worries that the
operations of the facility -
which includes a' restaurant,
cabins and boat. launch -
would end with the sale were


allayed when the board
agreed to sign Sunrise Sunset
Concessions of Siesta Key
Inc., to a six-month conces-
sions contract.
Sunrise Sunset will be
ready to open the facility on
Thursday and will keep it
operating as if Alston still
owned it, McCarthy said.
"They will have the same
operating hours, and all pro-
cedures will be mimicked,"
McCarthy said. "We worked
very closely to find out what

The entertainment, fea-
tured there before the sale
will continue afterward, in-
cluding the banjo players.
The menu' will be main-
tained for at least six months,
and Sunrise Sunset has
agreed to even get its food
from the same vendors.
McCarthy said the conces-
sion contract will be reviewed
in six months and could be
extended by six months at


that time.
Access approved
The county originally in-
tended to come to an agree-
ment with Alston to maintain
the operations of Snook Haven
while the county had time to
bid out a long-term concession
contract, but County Admin-
istrator Jim Ley said an "illness
would preclude that option."
Commission Chair David
Mills is concerned about ac-
cess to the property because

Sarasota School Superintendent Gary Norris spoke to a crowd of supporters of the 1 -mill tax
extension as they waited for the results of Tuesday's election.

put every child on a path of
success ... and do more to
raise salaries for our deserv-
ing employees," Norris said.
Weinrich applauded the
community for its response.
"It's not easy to do (win a
referendum) in a predomi-
nantly retired community,"
he said. "It tells me people
value a good education.
When you get a chance to talk
to people, even to those who
are skeptical, they recognize
somebody took care of them,
and they are glad to do the
same for our youth."
The stakes were huge: A
loss would have meant $47
million in cuts districtwide
next year. Sarasota County
School District has an annual

operating budget of about
$350 million. The win means
public schools will accrue
anywhere from $215 million
to $250 million or possibly
more -during the next four
years in property taxes.


One mill equals $100 per
$100,000 in home value ($75
per $100,000 with a home-
stead exemption). County
residents currently pay a total
tax rate of 14.63 mills.
Superintendent Norris has


said the district will spend ref-
erendum dollars by continu-
ing existing programs and
nearly 400 new positions that
were created through referen-
dum dollars passed in 2002. It
also will fund his NeXt
Generation Learning strategic
plan, which raises teacher
salaries and boosts technolo-
gy training for educators.
The plan also calls for high
school reforms and systemic
changes that result in Smaller
Learning Communities
(groups of 300-400 students
on a similar career path, like
the medical field, for exam-
ple), block scheduling, and a
continued ramping up of


summer school and guidance
counseling services that are
already in place in some
schools.
The vote was a renewal of
the optional 1-mill education
tax approved in March 2002.
That referendum passed with
63 percent of the votes, while
37 percent voted against it.
Nearly 80,000 voted on the
measure in that election. The
successful 2002 vote followed
a failed referendum in July
2000 when 66 percent of vot-
ers cast ballots against the
measure and 33 percent
voted in favor, with a total of


48,529 ballots cast. School
officials say the loss resulted
in over $30 million in painful
and destructive cuts, laying
the groundwork for a success-
ful referendum two years
later.
Sarasota Classified/Teach-
ers Association president Pat
Gardner got the final word in
as the' Tuesday evening CBS
celebration came to a close.
"See you in 2010," she
exclaimed.

SHELTER from Page 1lA


opening tier system that had
the same shelters opening
first for each storm. This
allows for more flexibility
when selecting shelters based
upon anticipated storm surge
potential.
Shelters will still open in
tiers, two in North County
and two in South County. The
new plan opens one shelter in
North Port and one in the
Venice/Englewood area. Each
area will have at least one pet-
friendly shelter open as well.
"This will create less dri-
ving than in the past,"
McCrane said. "This is key to
evacuations."
Of the 17 shelters available
to the county, four may not
open at all if a Category 4 or
stronger storm is threatening.
This is because the Venice
Community Center, Pine
View School, Garden
Elementary School and Taylor
Ranch Elementary School sit
at a base elevation below 20
feet.
Once the first four shelters
are at 50 percent of their
expected capacity, McCrane
said, four more shelters will
open, and that system, will
progress as needed.
Special needs
For people with special
needs, the county has four
shelters that can hold up to
2,000 people. These buildings
have been retrofitted and
have upgraded generators as
part of a cooperative effort
with the school district to
expand the number of shel-
ters.
There are 1,867 people reg-
istered with the county as per-
sons with special needs. Of
those, about 1,000 would
need sheltering at designated
shelters; the balance qualify
based on a lack of transporta-
tion.
To help people better
understand what they must
do if a hurricane approaches,
the county has a'one-page
brochure that has a list of sup-
plies and a "Should I Stay or
Should I Go?" section that will
help people decide.

Pine Street prep-work begins


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


The preparation work on a
long-awaited effort to extend
Pine Street a few thousand
feet has begun.
Drivers along East Dear-
born/South River Road at
Pine Street will probably
notice ripped up trees and
signs of work just north of the
intersection.
That effort is part of the
environmental preparation
work for the actual road con-
struction that will begin this
summer, said Sarasota
County Project Manager
HowardWhite.
Mitigation work is being
done for the nearly 20 gopher
tortoise burrows and other
environmental concerns in
the area, White said.
"We use a roller chop to
clear out some brush to see if
there are more nests," he said.
State law requires that mit-
fgation pens be built for dis-
placed tortoises and to ensure
that all of the tortoises in the
area are found before actual
construction begins.
The tortoises will be relo-
cated to an area in the north-
west corner of the Englewood
Sports Complex, White said.
The Pine Street extension
work has been delayed for
similar environmental con-
cerns.
"We finally have a way to
mitigate for what we are going
to encounter back there,"
White said.
The area has concerns
about wetlands and numer-
ous threatened species that
all have to be overcome
before construction can take
place.
Construction ofthe nearly
2,900-foot stub will start once
all the environmental issues
are dealt with and after
Florida Power & LightCo.
relocates some power lines.
When construction begins,
it will create a multipurpose
Trail for walkers and bikers to
link to the sports complex.
"This has been an impor-
tant project for the communi-
ty," said Chris Davis, coordi-
nator of the Englewood
,Community Redevelopment
'Agency.
The bike paths and trails
will link to similar paths and
:trails planned for the widen-
ing of East Dearborn Street.
"It is nearly impossible for
,anyone to go out River Road
on a bike or to walk to get to
ithe sports complex," White
:said. "This will provide that
;back entrance we have always
*wanted."
The extension will link to
the back portion of the Forest
Park subdivision, which has
its main entrance on State
'Road 776.
"We have heard this for a
;long time now," said Hank
Lockwood, who lives near the
rear of Forest Park. "I will be
,happy when it is done, that's
for sure. It would make my life
a lot easier."
It also will connect to the
proposed Englewood Inter-
agency Council one-stop so-
cial services building planned
for a spot behind Englewood
United Methodist Church.
White said there were
plans to include the social
services building and the
sports complex as stops on
:the expanded Sarasota Coun-
ty Area Transit bus loop that

will eventually link to Eng-
lewood Community Hospital.
The expansion is expected to
be implemented by SCAT
sometime in the fall.
"The bus stops will be part


of the construction," he said.
There also will be improve-
ments done to the intersec-
tion at South Pine Street, with
a new traffic signal and line
striping.


The project is expected to
be completed sometime early
next year.
The county currently owns
much of the right of way for a
possible link to U.S. 41 and it


was once considered a route
for the Englewood Interstate
Connector. But there are no
plans to extend Pine Street
beyond the Park Forest and
sports complex entrances,


due to extensive environ-
mental issues and possible
high costs.

Chemical industry will attempt


to influence fertilizer decision


Whoooooo are you looking at?


Sarasota County is reviewing St. Johns County
rules that limit the use of quick-release nitrogen.
Chemical industry officials would prefer state
regulations that preempt local measures.


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


An environmental tug-of-
war over the widespread use
of chemical fertilizers will
probably begin later this
month when Sarasota County
considers how best to control
the flow of nutrients such as
nitrogen and phosphorus
into area surface waters and
the Gulf of Mexico.
Documents obtained by
the Pelican Press indicate the
Florida Fertilizer and Agri-
chemical Association -
which lobbies Florida law-
makers on behalf of the
chemical fertilizer industry -
may try to dissuade county
officials from adopting local
regulations.
In a Feb. 7 report to mem-
bers, Association President
Mary Hartney wrote, "I've
heard rumblings that Sarasota
County and other counties
may be considering a similar
ban on (quick-release nitro-
gen fertilizers), so we'll need
to do some work in those
areas as well."
The "similar ban" reference
was to Citrus County regula-
tions proposed by several
commissioners at' a recent
goal-setting workshop. Hart-
ney stated in her report
that representatives from
TruGreen-ChemLawn helped
"persuade the commissioners
to moderate their approach."
On March 22, the county
commission will hear a staff
report from its water-quality
experts about the uses and
abuses of fertilizer, and de-
cide whether it wants to ad-
dress the environmental
r problems through public
education or an ordinance
with regulations.
"This is a very broad and
complex subject," said Jack
Merriam, the county's water
quality manager. "In Florida,
nitrogen is a high level item.,





'. K
.r


We will analyze the situation
and make recommendations.
Do we need an ordinance? If
so, what should it be? We'll
provide options."
Best practices
So far, two Florida com-
munities have adopted mea-
sures to reduce the flow of
nutrients. St. John's County
in the St. Augustine area
restricts fast-release nitrogen
fertilizers, while the Village of
Wellington in Palm Beach
County regulates phosphorus.
Both ordinances draw on
"best management practices"
devised by University of Flor-
ida scientists and adopted by
the Florida Department of
Environmental Regulation for
reducing nutrient levels in
stormwater runoff discharges
and improving surface water
quality.
The St. John's County ordi-
nance focuses on the use of
fertilizers at an upscale golf
course community, >while the
Wellington ordinance is more
geared to agriculture. Both
provide models for the coun-
ty to consider, while draft
language has also been pro-
vided by an outside expert.
Preemption
Fertilizer industry docu-
ments indicate the chemical
companies would rather see
an "urban best management
practices" law be adopted by
the Florida Legislature that
preempts, county and city
regulations imposed through
local ordinances.
In a Dec. 2, 2005, memo-
randum to directors and ad-
visors, Harmey concluded. "I
believe ii is important for the
industry to come to agree-
ment on this issue without
sacrificing any sector of the
market. If we don't hang to-
gether, we'll hang separately."

red tide outbreaks in record-
ed history helped persuade
Sarasota County commis-
sioners to reduce fertilizer
use on public lands. The
tougher decision is whether
to extend that policy onto
private property.
There is a growing belief
in the scientific community
that nitrogen and phospho-

rus in stormwater runoff
may actually be feeding the
naturally recurring red tide
blooms that begin far off-
shore and rob the water of
oxygen and kill fish as
they spread toward the
mainland.
Protecting the basin
St. Johns County was
motivated to control fertil-
izer when an overabundance
of nutrients in the Guana
Marsh an Outstanding
Florida Water caused a
prolific growth of vegetation
and severe flooding in resi-
dential areas due to restrict-
ed water flow.
Its fertilizer ordinance tar-
geted the residents of Ponte
Vedra Beach a posh golf
course community who
reside just north of the
marsh area. Environmental
officials determined their
heavy use of lawn fertilizer
was a significant contributor
to the problem.
To protect the Guana River
Basin, the ordinance requires
that all companies employed
to apply fertilizer on lawns
must be registered with the
county, insured, trained and
willing to supply all records
of fertilizer applications up-
on request.
It restricts the application
rate of fertilizer to 0.5 pounds
of soluble nitrogen per 1,000
square feet in a single appli-
cation, and establishes a
maximum annual nitrogen
rate of 4 pounds per 1,000
square feet when applied to
St. Augustine grass. There are
also rules for Bermuda grass.
The St. John's County ordi-
nance includes exemptions
for newly planted and dam-
aged lawns, but a prohibition
on the application of fertil-
izers within 10 feet of all sur-
face waters, streams, ponds,
flooded retention areas,
flooded drainage ditches and
standing water.

UWhy open government matters to you



Why open government matters to you


Florida isn't the only state with a law that
requires government meetings and
records to be open to its citizens. Many
states, however, acknowledge that the
Florida Government-in-the Sunshine law
(which includes,a 1976 amendment to the
state constitution) is the nation's best.
One reason Florida's law works so well is
that it is monitored and enforced by Florida's
attorney general.
And it has teeth. The local state attorney
has the authority to prosecute criminal viola-
tions of the law. Also, there are civil remedies.
Florida courtssupport it.
This is not the case in Ohio, which has no
administrative appeals process. Nor can the
Ohio attorney general or a local prosecutor
investigate or enforce compliance with open
records complaints. So if a governmental
agency says "No," Ohio residents are out of


luck.
Oregon, which considers its 1973 public
^records law a strong one, had individuals test
the open records law in all 36 counties to
increase public awareness. Only half the 178
requests for records in Oregon were granted
by local and county officials.
Earlier in tewo Oregon counties, Union and
Baker, citizens concerned about question-
able school-district spending, conducted a
study. Before the citizen group finished
reviewing the records, several school officials
left their posts and the FBI and Oregon State
Police launched probes into alleged fraud.
In Arkansas, a judge accused of miscon-
duct issued an order brazenly prohibiting
publication of the testimony against him. A
seven-judge state supreme court panel ruled
he couldn't do that.
Florida's First Amendment Foundation is


determined to make sure people know their
rights.
Yet when agencies aren't tested, they can
be difficult to deal with. A spokesperson for
the Florida Department of Transportation
had to be urged to check with the depart-
ment's attorney when she balked at giving
out information to the Sun newspapers.
When North Port and Sarasota County
commissioners battled over who would get
the money from the sale of some 2,000 lots
taken for nonpayment of taxes, the North
Port Sun was able to see the minutes of what
some tried to contend was a confidential
meeting, so taxpayers could learn what was
going on.
Our public records laws helped expose
political action committees that triedto poi-
son the 2004 campaign of State Rep. Paige
Kreegel. Those same laws make it possible -


for the most part for voters to know what
special interests have helped financed a can-
didate's run for office.
A St. Petersburg Times editorial recently
uncovered the fact that a defense contractor
was given $400,000 in tax credits in Florida
and the information was withheld from the
public under a confidentiality law.
What is so bad about that?
The defense contractor, MZM, is the same
corporation whose principal owner admitted
to bribing former California Congressman
Duke Cunningham and giving illegal contri-
butions to two other U.S. representatives,
including Katherine Harris, who represents
our district.
Remember, Florida's law must constantly
be used and protected. As is often said about
the sharpness of the human brain as one
ages, either "use it or lose it."


Machines flunk



voting tests


ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST


' The National Academy of
Sciences, the nation's most
prestigious scientific organi-
zation, has commissioned a
$7.5 million grant to research
electronic election technolo-
gy. Professor Avi Rubin of
Johns Hopkins University is
leading the research group.
Speaking of electronic sys-
tems, including the touch-
screen systems used in Sara-
sota, he calls for a paper trail,
"The more I see, I say we need
voting to rely on paper."
Supporting Rubin's obser-
vations, Ion Sancho, supervi-
sor of elections in Leon
County, Fla., arranged several
tests of these systems. His
counterpart in Sarasota is
Kathy Dent, who defends the
existing systems the county
has purchased, which have
no paper copy to verify the
accuracy of the machine's
count of votes. ,
Sancho asked computer
specialists to try to break into
his voting systems. On four
separate tries they successful-
. ly broke in each time and
changed results using rela-
tively unsophisticated "hack-
ing techniques," reported
Zachary Goldfarb in the
Washington Post, Jan. 22.
The results showed that
the voting equipment was
vulnerable. The results of the
test switched votes from one
candidate to another, just as I
suggested in a hypothetical
example in a recent column.
The Post reports that many
people have not taken reports
of such vulnerabilities seri-
ously yet, believing they be-
lieved they were the com-
plaints of "sore losers."
Neither Republicans nor
Democrats are safe if voting
machines that leave no paper
trail are used, as they are here
in Sarasota and Venice. This
problem has led officials in
Florida and elsewhere to
decide not to use machines
which leave no paper trail
that can be audited. Ma-
chines leaving a trail have
been successfully tested.
Diebold defended its sys-
tems saying, to Sancho, "You
have willfully and intention-
ally allowed manipulation of
memory cards related to your
elections."
Guess what, folks lots of


us know that elections have
been deliberately manipulat-
ed before, by both parties,
using all kinds of systems:
faking ballots, stealing ballots,
miscounting ballots and
more. So no voter is safe when
the system is defective and
leaves no record.
Our county commission-
ers, especially those from this
area, Shannon Staub and Jon
Thaxton, should hear from
concerned voters. There are
petitions being circulated but
direct contacts are very effr6c-
dve. Until they hear from vot-
ers like those of you reading
this column, the county com-
missioners and Ms. Dent are
stonewalling this issue.
'Free State Road 681!'
"Breathes there a man with
soul so dead, that never to
himself has said, 'This is my
road, my native road why'
are they messing it up?' "
(with apologies to Sir Walter
Scott).
I hope that Ms. Staub and
Mr. Thaxton, whom I find
generally responsive to area
voters (and we should include
Paul Mercier, who demon-
strated, once again, his inter-
est in this area by recently
coming down from Sarasota
on a Saturday to attend a
small civic gathering) will ask
county staff to take another
look at the plan to add three
red-light controlled etits on
State Road 681, which con-
nects U.S 41 above Laurel
Road to Interstate 75.
As part of development
planned by Henry Rodriguez
and perhaps other develop-
ers, the county has agreed to
break up with intersections
this lovely escape from the
increasingly traffic-jammed
41 stretching from Venice to
Laurel Road.
I spoke with Mr. Rodriguez
some weeks ago when the
plan was announced and he
discussed the reason why an
exit could not lead from 681
to a parallel road that would
feed the internal develop-
ment streets.
Mr. Rodriguez pointed out
the old railroad track, soon to
be a recreational trail, and a
stream would interrupt such
a road, so he argued a single
exit would not be feasible.
He may well be right, but I
have been looking at the area
from the roadways and I
believe there is a possible
alternative.
On 41 near 681, there is a
traffic-light-controlled en-
trance, Roberts Road, which
enters the Spanish Lakes
development. At that en-
trance one road parallels 41 to
its northern end, where 681
begins.

City council needs long-term view


Editor:
The current discussion on the proposed height restriction
has not considered why people come to Venice and buy prop-
erty.
My home is close to the area where a 35-foot height limit is
being considered. We looked around Florida and were repelled
by Naples and Fort Lauderdale high-rises. Venice and Vero
Beach offered a much more suburban housing image. After
quite a bit of looking, we choose Venice.
City council needs to consider what type of a community
the residents want and the implications to the community.
High-rises will bring many more people to Venice and ulti-
mately overwhelm the beaches and downtown parking. The
sewer and water systems on the island have limits and most
likely will need to be expanded.
The quality of life will change, and not for the better. Fewer
people will decide to come to this community, others will
decide to leave for less-dense areas.
City council should determine what the residents want -
not the developers, who only want to do development and get
out with bundles of money.
This is a critical long-term choice for the future of a unique
community.

Don't let greed
get in the way
Editor:
If Congress and this ad-
ministration are truly serious
about national security they
will make sure that not only all
our sea-going ports but our air-
ports and national borders are
all secured by American citi-
zens and American compa-
nies.
This is not an issue that can
be delegated to another nation,
not even the British, or viewed
as a joint venture with anyone.
If the United States wishes to
have national security, then
Americans must maintain that
security.
You can try to justify doing
business with anyone (even
dictators and assassins) in the
name of greed and world dom-
inance, but when it comes to
the security of this nation, it
must be handled by American
citizens and totally owned
American companies.

Still suffering
from 'After Shock'
Editor:
March 4, I attended a free
video entitled 'After Shock"
that I wish everyone who is
concerned about our country
had taken the time to see. It
featured the protesters at the
presidential inaugural in
2004, and statements by a
number of those who had
been motivated to come to
Washington, D.C., and voice
their concerns regarding the
direction our country was
headed.
Far from being strange or
lacking patriotism, they were
articulate and logical. I was
particularly troubled by the
mother whose son, regarded
as an American boy who
loved his country, became the
first National Guardsman
from Pennsylvania to be kill-
ed in action since 1945.
She said she felt finally
compelled to speak out
against the distortions and
lies that led us into the Iraq


war.
The screening, sponsored
by the Venice Peace Coalition,
was the first of three free to
the public. Dates of the future
showings are Saturday, March
18 and 25, at the Jacaranda
Public Library. All shows are
at 2 p.m.
What troubled me most
was the sparse attendance of
about a dozen interested citi-
zens, in spite of notices in the
newspapers. As an Engle-
wood resident, I believe only
three attended this com-
pelling film despite the fact
that Jacaranda Library is as
close as it is.
Can't a town of thousands
at least fill a small room when'
our youth are dying in a war
that was started under false
and misleading information?

Not my job to
raise your kids.
Editor:
Apparently, few people un-
derstand the' concept that
some individuals have collec-
tively decided not to have
children. Yet I keep having to
deal with this overall attitude
that it is somehow my re-
sponsibility to take care of
everyone else's children or
grandchildren. How so?
I do not mind paying
school taxes even though I
do not benefit from that so-
cial good because I have al-
ways been a big advocate of
education. However, I do
resent parents assuming that
either my house or yard is a
day care, or open to theft or
vandalism or destruction be-
cause of poor parenting.
They seemingly have this
overall mentality that I should
have to deal with the social or
economic problems of their
choice to have a family, which
is totally inconsistent with my
thinking process.


As a professional working
woman, my tax dollars
already paid for unwed moth-
ers, prenatal birth of the child
and after-care via govern-
ment tax revenue; drug treat-
ment centers for juvenile
delinquent programs; and on
and on and on.
So, to enlighten parents
who seemingly have all these
problems with their children,
I must say to them, all of my
tenants for my entire life were
U.C. Berkeley students get-
ting a fine education where
the same age group of youth
in this community appear to
be getting their education in
jail.
That in itself tells me
something is extremely
wrong in the community.

Impeach the
whole lot of them
Editor;
The president's responsi-
bility is to uphold the Con-
stitution, not to bend and
ignore it to his needs and
wishes. His failures to do so
require immediate impeach-
ment.
A congressional failure to
impeach is also criminal, for
they have the same ultimate
responsibilities.
Or perhaps we could just
change the Constitution to
read "liberty and justice for
some."

Investing sweat equity in Venice


Ed Martin's last couple of
columns have been focused
on our group called Citizens
for Quality Government. His
focus has been to try to create
a perception that CQG is this
massive group that buys
Venice City Council candi-
dates and their votes.
This is absolutely false. All
Mr. Martin or anyone has to
do is look at our mission
statement: CQG was founded
to find and support qualified
candidates for office.
We are citizens just like
each and every one of you


reading this column. We are
here to work, raise our fami-
lies and give back to our com-
munity.
If Mr. Martin or you look at
our contributors, you will see
people you know, do business
with and serve in community,
church and fraternal organi-
zations.
These people Mr. Martin
keeps referring to are the
same people who give back to
our community, not just in
donations but with their
sweat equity. Sweat equity is
different than writing a week-
ly column or complaining in
air conditioning.
In my book and I hope
in most of our citizens' books
- sweat equity (being active-
ly involved in community
functions, church groups,
Rotary, Lions, Moose, Ser-
toma, Jaycees, chamber vol-
unteering and all the others)
carries more credibility than
just writing columns attempt-
ing to create controversy
where there is none.
CQG is open to anyone


and everyone who wants to
be a contributor. Our records
are open by law and we have
nothing to hide.
One more time, our agen-
da is to find qualified candi-
dates for city council and sup-
port them. Our contributors
are not only supporting by
financial contributions, but
by raising money for chari-
ties, the Fourth of July fire-
works, the Rotary Futures
Program, the Sertoma Speech
Clinic for Children, the Boys &
Girls Club,. the South County
Family YMCA and hundreds
of other causes that make our
Venice community a better
place to be.
Mr. Martin, if you would
like to try some sweat equity, I
or any other contributors will
be happy to give you the
opportunity. Try it, you might
even like it.

Pets as prizes was hare-brained


Horrified. While I enjoyed the Italian festival this weekend, I
was horrified to find out that live baby bunnies were being
given away as prizes to whoever could win them. Kids are tak-
ing them home whose parents don't want them, and they're
being turned out, used for food or even worse. I was just horri-
fied and would like to know whose bright idea that was to allow
that practice to happen. Baby bunnies could be sick and taken
home to sicken other pets. I was terribly upset, especially for


the safety of those bunnies.

Giving thanks. Everybody
calls this line to complain, I'd
just like- to say thank you.
Thank you to the Venice
Gondolier Sun for a couple of
things. One is letting us know
the reasons why the Venetian
Waterway Park hasn't been
finished from Shamrock Park
to the old railroad station.
Number two, Let'em Have It: I
think it's a wonderful service.
On the subject of giving
thanks, I would also like to
thank the county and the
people at waste management
for the free compost and
mulch they make available to
us at Shamrock Park. It's a real
service to the community.
Thanks again.
Monstrous. I had a com-
ment about the property at
the intersection of Sunset
Beach and Gentian Road.
First of all, if there are per-
mits, the permit department
should be reprimanded. And
if there aren't any permits,
well, shame on the property
owner. There is a house with a


fence around the front that in
my opinion should be against
the code. Also, on this same
property they are building
something that looks like a
small-size factory garage unit
big enough to hold many,
many cars. As far as I'm con-
cerned this is a residential
area and the zoning should
not permit something that
huge and monstrous in that
area. It's way bigger than any
house. Actually, it's probably
the same size as McDonald's.
Just driving the property
value down. Enforcement
should be ashamed of them-
selves.
In fairness. In the Feb. 17
issue of your paper, in the real
estate classified part it shows
pictures of the new Kymberly
Court and how beautiful it's
going to be. So why don't you,
in fairness, print pictures of
what's there now because it's
so much nicer what's there
now.

Business owner up to old tricks


BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER

A woman who was fined
$7,825 by Sarasota County for
running a business out of her
home is at it again, according
to county code enforcement.
Mira Matchin, who was
found guilty by a county spe-
cial magistrate on Jan. 20, has
moved her business to two
duplexes on San Lorenzo
Avenue, according to papers
filed by code enforcement.
"I said I wasn't going to


play cat-and-mouse games
with her," said Code Enforce-
ment Officer Richard Kuntz.
A short time after Match-
in's business at Hacienda
Street and Granada Avenue
was shut down by the county,
residents on San Lorenzo
started to notice an increase
in activity.
Matchin was unavailable
for comment.
Ray Stoner, who lives near-
by, said he is outraged.
'All of a sudden, there are
all these strangers walking all


around my neighborhood,"
Stoner said, adding that there
are about 16 people currently
staying at the two duplexes.
Stoner said he talked with
the people who are walking
around.
"They said they are paying
$800 for a two-week stay, and
saw the ads running on TV in
NewYork City," Stoner said.
Matchin may have made a
major error this time, accord-
ing to Kuntz.
"She is renting a duplex.
According to county code, if


she rents or sublets rooms for'
less than 30 days, she must
provide the names and ad-
dresses of everyone she has
staying there," Kuntz said.
In its notice of code viola-
tion, the county ordered
Matchin to stop rentals of less
than 30 days and to provide
records of all tenants, includ-
ing names, addresses and
periods of rentals.
Matchin was given until
April 2 to comply.
In the Jan. 20 hearing, the
county and area residents


warned Matchin they would
not tolerate her activities.
Kuntz said he will be looking
into activities at all the
addresses and may file more
violations if warranted.
On Jan. 20, Magistrate Meg
Wittmer found Mira Matchin
guilty of violating a Feb. 4,
2005, order to cease operating
a business from her Warm
Mineral Springs home, and
fined her $7,825.
The decision also places a
9-percent interest rate on any
unpaid balance, and places a


lien on her home. Joy Elliott of
code enforcement said that
. the fine has not yet been paid.
Since that order was issued,
Matchin reportedly listed her
home for sale.
According to papers filed
by Nicholas Sardelis, attorney
for Matchin, she is challeng-
ing Wittmer's order.
An appeal was filed on Feb.
7 in the Circuit Court of the
12th Judicial Circuit.

1-75 biker clocked at 155 mph


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


A man faces a slew of
charges for going 155 mph on
his motorcycle on Interstate
75, blowing through Venice
and crashing the bike in Sara-
sota.
Luis R. Machado, 25, 700
block Tarpon St., Fort Myers,
was charged with unlawful
speed 137 mph, unlawful
speed 155 mph, running a red
light, reckless driving, no mo-
torcycle license, driving while
license revoked under habitu-
al status, and aggravated flee-
ing or attempting to elude law
enforcement officers.
Machado finally crashed
his motorcycle at Clark and
Gantt roads in Sarasota. He
was hospitalized with non-
life-threatening injuries.
Not-so
excellent adventure
Machado's high-speed run
began in Lee County north of
Fort Myers near the Slater


Road overpass.
The Florida Highway Pa-
trol was using aircraft to en-
force speed limits. The FHP
pilot clocked a northbound
yellow motorcycle at 137
mph.
As troopers tried to catch
up to the bike, it fled at an
even higher rate of speed
using the centerline of the
road to pass traffic.
The pilot .continued to
maintain a visual on the bike
as it continued on into Char-
lotte County. Machado con-
tinued passing traffic using
the centerline then moving to
the emergency strip.
The pilot told troopers on
the ground to lay back, hop-
ing Machado would slow
down if he did not see police
following him.
Machado continued
through Charlotte and De-
Soto counties in a blur.
Next
When he got to, Sarasota
County, Machado exited onto


Toledo Blade Boulevard and
immediately went back onto
1-75.
Then he got off at Sumter
Road, traveled to Tropicaire
Boulevard, back to Toledo
Blade and south to U.S. 41.
Machado worked his way
up U.S. 41. The FHP pilot still
had him in sight.,
Machado finally worked
his way back to 1-75 via Venice
Avenue and Jacaranda Boul-
evard.
Once Machado got back
onto 1-75, the FHP pilot
clocked him at 155 mph. Ma-
chado got off the interstate at
Clark Road and traveled west.
He ran a red light at Gantt
Road and was hit by another
vehicle.

LEGAL NOTICE


If you bought gasoline in parts of

Louisiana, Mississippi, ,Alabama, and

Florida from May 11 to June 2, 2004,

you may be eligible for a payment

from a class action settlement.

Para una notificacion en Espaiol, Ilamar o visitar nuestro website.


A settlement has been reached in a class action
lawsuit about certain batches of Motiva gasoline that
were sold with some amounts of elemental sulfur and/
or hydrogen sulfide, which caused some gas gauges
to malfunction. The settlement will pay people for
reasonable and necessary vehicle repairs, related dam-
ages like towing and car rental, and other general
damages such as lost wages. Even if you already had
your vehicle repaired, or you filed a claim as part of
Motiva's or another repair program, you may still
qualify for a payment.
If you're included, you may send in a claim form to
ask for a payment,, or you can exclude yourself, or
object. The United States District Court for the Eastern
District of Louisiana authorized this notice and will
have a hearing to decide whether to approve the settle-
ment, so-that payments can be issued to people who
send in valid claim forms. Get a detailed notice at the
website or by calling 1-866-314-5812.
WHO'S INCLUDED?
You could be a "Settlement Class member" if you
used or bought Motiva gasoline from certain gas
stations in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and
Florida from May 11, 2004 to June 2, 2004, or got
gasoline from certain fleet storage facilities that it may
have been shipped to. The gasoline was mostly sold at
some Shell and Texaco gas stations, and depending on
the city or town at some other gas stations like BP
Amoco, Chevron, Citgo, Circle K, Exxon Mobil, Hess,
Murphy, and possibly others, so please check the
detailed notice. Many, but not all, makes and models
of cars and other vehicles use silver sensors in their
fuel gauges. Only vehicles with silver sensors were
possibly damaged. Not every silver sensor gas gauge
was damaged, and those that were usually malfunc-
tioned after a few days or not at all. To see whether
you're included, check the lists showing the locations
of the gasoline stations and storage facilities, grades
of gasoline, and dates of sale that are included in
the settlement at www.gasclaims.com, or call toll free
1-866-314-5812.
WHAT DOES THE SETTLEMENT PROVIDE?
The settlement will pay all valid claims for reason-
able and necessary repairs, or reimbursement for
repairs, for vehicle damage caused by the gasoline.
The settlement will also pay valid claims for incidental
expenses (lodging, towing, rental cars, etc.) that


occurred as a result of the vehicle damage. A settle-
ment fund of $3.7 million is provided to pay valid
claims for general damages up to $300 in actual lost
wages plus $150 in other general damages. If the.
combined amount of claims for general damages and
actual lost wages is too great to allow full payment
of them, you will get a pro rata share (based on what
each Settlement Class member claimed in proportion
to the total of all allowed Settlement Class members'
claims). Also, the settlement recommends to the
Court that $50,000 be donated to the American Red
Cross National Disaster Relief Fund for the benefit
of the victims of hurricanes Katrina, Rita, and
Wilma, or to a suitable charity or other purpose that
the Court directs.
HOW DO YOU ASK FOR A PAYMENT?
Check the lists showing the locations of the gasoline
stations and storage facilities, grades of gasoline, and
dates of sale that are included in the settlement. Then,
if you believe you're a Settlement Class member, fill
out a claim form and mail it postmarked by September
12, 2006. Call or go to the website to get a claim form
and the lists of qualifying gasoline stations and storage
facilities.
YOUR OTHER RIGHTS.
If you don't want a payment from the settlement, or
if you don't want to be legally bound by it, you must
exclude yourself by June 30, 2006, or you won't be
able to sue, or continue to sue, the defendants about the
legal claims in this case. If you exclude yourself, you
can't get a payment from this settlement. If you don't '
exclude yourself, you may choose to object to it, if you
do so by June 30,2006. A detailed notice, available by
calling or going to the website below, explains how to
exclude yourself or object. The Court will hold a
hearing in this case, known as In Re High Sulfur
Content Gasoline Products Liability Litigation, MDL
1632, on September 6, 2006, to consider whether to
approve the settlement and a request by the lawyers
representing the Class for fees and expenses not to
exceed $6.875 million. Any fees and expenses would
be paid separately and will not reduce payments to
Settlement Class members. You or your own lawyer
may ask to appear and speak at the hearing, at your own
cost, but you don't have to.
For more information, call or go to the website
listed below.

for he. Tigers last year., ,
"I chink \e -made a lot of
progress today," Smith said.

'150 plays you are going to
make progress. I think we
made strides and now we
have an idea of what we need
to work on."

After three consecutive
road games last week, the
Venice High girls softballers
were glad to be home again
Tuesday night.
A five-run fifth-inning rally
broke open a tight game as
the Lady Indians went on to
squash Port Charlotte, 7-0.
Venice improved its overall
record to 1-2 and its Class 5A
District 12 mark to 8-1.
Winning pitcher Heather
Laird improved her personal
record to 7-1. She scattered
four hits, struck out seven
and walked just one.
The Lady Indians played
errorless ball behind her. Eye-
opening plays were turned
in by third baseman Felicia
Taylor on a hard liner and
shortstop Brittany Hipple and


second baseman Kristen
Bailey on a number of chal-
lenging balls.
Taylor charged the offense
in the third inning to break a
scoreless tie. With two outs,
Nikki Clark walked and stole
second. Taylor then ripped
the ball down the rightfield
line for a double plating
Clark. The ball was kicked
around in the outfield and
Taylor raced all the way home.
Venice put the game away
with a five-run fifth against
Lady Pirate pitcher Jessica
Jobst, who only allowed one
run against Venice in the
team's first meeting. Maureen
Sandidge had a two-run sin-
gle. Heather Boyts also had a
RBI single. Catcher Megan
Watson, who was again
superb behind the plate
defensively, plated another
run with a groundout.


Venice will get the chance
to avenge its lone district loss
this Thursday when Manatee
comes to town.

The Venice High football
machine keeps pumping out
players for college.
The latest in the line to
sign on to play at the next
level are linemen Josh Car-
penter and Mike Danski, who
committed to play at NCAA
Division II Northern State in
AberdeenwSiDRw o-j '
BothsiiW lssRfig ^ii
the Indians defensive fiTe
last fall. Venice finished with
a regular season record of 3-7,
but all three victories were in
district, giving the Indians a
regional playoff berth. VHS
surprised previously unbeat-
en Fort Myers in their region
opener before falling to Largo
in a wild contest.
Both Carpenter and Danski
said they'll have a shot at
starting in their freshman
campaigns at NSU.
Carpenter said there were
roughly 20 small colleges
interested in his services. He
visited with the Northern
State folks at a recruiting fair
earlier this year in Lake


Wales.
Football recruiting fairs
help make it easier for high
school players to find the
right college to play at.
Venice head coach Nick
Coleman said there were 49
colleges represented at the
fair in Lake Wales. A number
of Venice players attended
the fair.
Northern State was selec-
tive in who it was courting.
"Thevihad a list -ofl -rpoters
they wan ed," Danski saidN'
"The head coach is from
Valdosta State," Carpenter
said of Chris Boden. "I think
they were 6-5 last year. This
is his first recruiting class."
Once Dainski- saw that
Carpenter was planning on'
signing with Northern, he
decided to join him. The
two will most likely be
roomies.
Carpenter said he wants
to study accounting. Danski
said English and political
science are his targets.
Both will leave for school
in August. The season runs
from late August up to early
November.

STAFF WRITER

It took a few years four
to be exact but Venice final-
ly came to North Port to play
a high school baseball game.
For years prior to the
opening of North Port High
School, the community's
baseball players often ended
up playing for Venice. So, it
was only natural a baseball
rivalry would develop.
Of course, you have to win
a game for it to become a
rivalry, something the Bob-
cats, who have been compet-
itive against the Indians, had
never done.
Until Monday.
Fittingly, a trio of seniors -
old-timers Zach Ziner and
Zach Maxfield, who, have
played five and four years for
the Bobcats, and C.J. Stallings,
a transfer from Port Charlotte
- led the way as North Port
grabbed an 11-6 Class 5A-
District 12 victory.
"We finally got the monkey
off our back," said a pleased
Rob Rowe, whose Bobcats
improved to 7-4 overall and
5-3 in the district. "We played
looser and I think that helped.
We made quite a few mental
mistakes early, but our bats
were hot and our pitching is
coming around."
Stallings, a right-hander,
went 4 2-3 innings to record
the victory, striking out six,


and he also helped his own
cause with three hits, includ-
ing two doubles, and four
runs batted in.
"There are a lot of guys
who have been waiting a long
time for this victory," said
Stallings, who has been put-
ting in extra work on the
mound with Rowe and pitch-
ing. coach Tom McLaughlin
and is seeing the benefits.
"Today I was hitting my
spots."
Maxfield, who entered the
game batting over .600, went
3-for-3 with two RBIs. Ziner
relieved Stallings and threw
strikes, allowing two unearn-
ed runs and three hits while
fanning one for the save.
"This victory means a lot,"
Maxfield said. "We knew we
could beat them, but we've
never played up to our po-
tential. Today, we came with
our sticks."
The Bobcats banged out
13 hits against five Venice
pitchers, and that was
enough to overcome some
sloppy defensive play. North
Port had five errors, four in
the first three innings, but
Venice managed to score just
two times.
Two of the errors came in
the third inning when the
Indians (4-5, 4-3 5A-12)
loaded the bases with none
out. But Stallings got out of
the situation when Brett
Holte lined to first baseman


Ryan Stansbury, who threw
to second to double up
Mike Atamanchuk, and Pete
Hernandez grounded into
an inning-ending fielder's
choice.
Stallings also got out of a
bases-loaded, one-out jam
in the fourth inning while
allowing just one run.
"We've got to capitalize
on those situations when
we're in charge," Venice coach
Craig Faulkner said. "We need
to have better at-bats."
The Bobcats overcame a


2-0 Venice lead with three in
the bottom of the first thanks
to sacrifice fly balls by Patrick
Hughes and Jesse Babcock.
North Port added another
three in the third inning on a
run-scoring single by Bab-
cock and Stallings' one-run
double.
Venice eventually closed
within 7-6, but North Port
scored four times in its half
of the inning, with Maxfield
driving home a. pair with a
single and Stallings driving
home another with his sec-


ond double.
Catcher Edwin Rosado had
a pair of hits for North Port.
For Venice, Jordan Lucas and
Trevor Pellitier each had two
hits.

KEN HAGGERTY
GOLF COLUMNIST


Scott Dunlap is a travellin'
man.
Talking to him at the start
of what would be an eight-
hour drive north from Sara-
sota, the 42-year-old PGA
Tour veteran was looking
forward to what the coming
season has in store.
And Georgia was on his
mind.
With the PGA Tour's Bell
South Classic looming, Dun-,
lap, who grew up in Sarasota,
is heading back to TPC
Sugarloaf in Duluth, where
last year he pitched up for a
pay check of more than
$160,000, finishing with a T6.
"It's going to be a fun
week," he said. "I got Duffy
Waldorf staying with me and
a couple of my caddy friends.
And it makes the week a
whole lot more fun. There's
always a good chance of
great things happening like
last year."'
Having won his first PGA
Tour card for the 1996-7 sea-
son and once again from
1999 to 2000, he's had his ups
and downs as the cuts have
tended to outweigh the Sun-
day afternoons in the sun.
But if anything, Dunlap is as
pragmatic as he is forthright.
He went to the University
of Florida, which he describes
as the "lost years."
"We didn't have any big

stars who made it to the tour
during my time," he says. "I
followed Mark Calcavecchia
and Chris Di Marco came
after, so we were in between.
But we had a good team -
not that I was the best. It just
happened I got my card. I
can't explain why. There were
others who you would've
placed bets on them pro-
gressing to the tour. I guess I
was lucky."
Not that there's any great
mystery to the game as far
as Dunlap is concerned.
"The key to golf," he says,
"is hitting the ball as far as
you should hit it. As long as
I'm relative to the rest of the
field, then I'll play well. But if
I'm hitting shorter than that
then I'm probably screwed.
"Any player on the PGA
Tour is a great golfer, but each
guy has something he does
exceptionally well except
for Tiger, of course, who does
everything well. For us mere
mortals though, we each
possess one element of our
game that's better than any-
body else's. For me, it's my
long iron game. So if that's
in order and everything else
is firing OK, I have a chance
to get the job done.
"I know the level you have
to play and I'm capable of
doing it. But I'm not doing it
at the moment. I either will or
I won't, but I won't lose any
sleep over it. I know what
the standard is. If I were to
compare my game to anyone,
it would be that of David
Toms. He's not long off the
tee, but he plays great golf.
He keeps the ball in play,
doesn't make mistakes, sinks,
the putts and keeps his emo-
tions under control. It's that
game I consistently aspire to."
Not that Dunlap is lacking
the formula for the winner's
enclosure, after all, he has
nine international victories to
his name including the South

African Masters. And during
his time on the Canadian
Tour in 1995 he was second
on the Order of Merit as well
as winning the Canadian
Masters by 10 strokes.
And still an inaugural PGA
Tour win proves elhisive for
Dunlap despite some stun-
ning close calls.
All you have to do is cast
your eyes over his stats and,
aside from the aforemen-
tioned Bell South Classic,
there's the T14 at least year's
Oregon Classic, the T10 at
the 2002 Michelob Cham-
pionship at Kingsmill and
the T3 at the 2001 PLAYERS
Championship. Added to
that trio was his break-
through victory during the
2004 Nationwide Tour, the
Mark Christopher Charity
Classic.
Despite its potential as a
stepping stone to the PGA
Tour, the Nationwide doesn't
hold any real allure for
Dunlap.
"I've already made a cou-
ple of cuts, albeit not for a
great amount of money, but
I'll get to play more than my
share this year. My 'only
problem with the Nationwide
Tour is the courses they
don't suit my game. I prefer
the tougher courses of the
PGA Tour. Because I rarely
shoot super low scores, a
course that requires finesse
and strategy will always keep
me at the top half of the
leader board."
And the game of golf does-
n't come much tougher than
when playing the links of
Scotland.
A self-confessed fan of the
gorse and heather, Dunlap is
planning a trip to Ireland and
Scotland later this year in
preparation for the British
Open qualifying rounds.
Dunlap may be a journey-
man pro, but he definitely
knows where he's going.

State to withhold PECO capital funds windfall.


PECO's Revenue Estimating Conference says "Rather than share this in-

$480 million more is available to universities, crease among K-12 public
schools, the state university

colleges and public schools, but Florida's system, and community col-

education commissioner wants to spend it all on decided to withhold action has

BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

The Florida Department of
Education is withholding a
$480 million windfall in PECO
capital funds usually shared
by K-12, community colleges
and state universities.
Education Commissioner
John Winn wants to use the
funds solely for K-12 public
schools to meet the state's
class-size amendment. A Pub-
lic Education Capital Outlay
Revenue Estimating Confer-
ence last week revised upward
the projected revenues.
The news came in the
form of a March 13 memo to,
school district superinten-
dents from Chari Pierson
Yecke, chancellor of K-12
public schools at the Florida
Department of Education.
At the Sept. 20, meeting of
the State Board of Education,
Winn presented the Fixed
Capital Outlay Legislative


Budget Request for 2006-07 at
$520 million, according to
Florida DOE officials. Using
this -base, the share allocated
to K-12 public schools was
$210,681,105, to be used for
maintenance, repair, renova-
tion, and remodeling of exist-
ing facilities, as well as new
construction.
In November, the original
estimates were revised up-
ward to approximately $1.4
billion, and following a rec-
ommended holdback of $150
million, the statutory alloca-
tion to K-12 public schools
increased by $303,607,590 to
a total of $514,288,695, ac-
cording to DOE.
Last week, the PECO
Revenue Estimating Confer-
ence again revised its esti-
mates of PECO funds, to $1.88
billion, producing another sig-
nificant and unexpected in-
crease in funds available for
appropriation, in this case, to
$480 million.


"The class-size constitu-
tional amendment has placed
a strain on our public school
facilities, and our current pro-
jections indicate that school
districts will need approxi-
mately $4.2 billion to build the
14,000 classrooms needed to
ensure compliance by 2010-11.
"Therefore, the commis-
sioner is looking to the
Legislature to consider a rec-
ommendation that this latest
increase of $480 million be
allocated exclusively to K-12
public schools in order to
meet the requirements of the
class size amendment," ac-
cording to the memo.

Good news, perhaps
Sarasota County Schools
Superintendent Gary Norris
was glad to hear about the
plan, but tempered his en-
thusiasm until he learns its
details.
"It all depends how the
funding is allocated," Norris


said. "If it's allocated on a per-
pupil basis, then that could be
good news. But if it's 'allocated
out' based on which districts
are farthest behind in meeting
class size (targets), then we
might not see any of it."
Norris said he hopes the
district won't be penalized for
its efforts to meet class-size
rules by purchasing portable
classrooms in order to meet
the letter of the law.
Some districts have been
using "co-teaching" to avoid,
having to add additional
classrooms. Co-teaching adds
another teacher to an existing
overcrowded classroom.

'Co'-dependent
While the DOE supports
co-teaching, it has said it
intends to ban the practice of
using it to compute class sizes.
Phil Handy, chair of the
state board, issued the follow-
ing statement in January:
"The board has ... confirmed
that it (co-teaching) cannot
be used as a means of comply-
ing with the requirements of
the class-size amendment as
clearly outlined in the Florida
Constitution. School districts
may still uge co-teaching, but
it will not count toward their


class-size calculation begin-
ning next school year."
"The plain language of the
Florida Constitution states
that class-size calculations
should be based on the num-
ber of students per classroom,
as well as the number of stu-
dents per teacher. Simply
adding another teacher to an
overcrowded classroom does
not meet these requirements,
nor does it fulfill the spirit
and intent of the class size
amendment as voters, parents
and teachers envisioned it,"
Handy said.
District-reported data have
revealed that the use of co-
teaching has more than
tripled in the two years since
the class-size amendment was
first implemented.-
The state board recom-
mended to the Florida Legis-
lature $1.9 billion in capital
outlay funds to assist districts
in meeting the requirements of
the class-size amendment. It's
not clear at this time if the new
PECO windfall will supplant
some of those proposed funds.

Shortchanged
The news wasn't good for
institutions of higher learning,
which would be left out of the


equation. They feel short-
changed.
It's too early into the legis-
lative session, which began
last week, to tell whether
higher education will be made
whole through other means.
Manasota Community Col-
lege officials made it clear they
have their own needs, and that
funneling PECO .monies to
one set of schools while ig-
noring the others isn't fair.
"While we can appreciate
the demands caused by the
class-size amendment on the
K-12 system, we remind legis-
lators and Department of
Education policy-makers that
the community college sys-
tem historically has been
underfunded," said MCC
President Sarah Pappas.
"Many of our colleges have
mid-20th century buildings
that are inadequate for train-
ing a future workforce for
21st century careers.
"Any educational system
that distributes funds un-
equally so that one branch is
funded to the detriment of
the others is not a balanced,
healthy system."
"This is not the time to
shirkfrom replenishing com-
munity colleges," Pappas said.

Taxbreks or 0 aea military families nixed


Hillsborough County
gives some armed
services families a.
property tax break of
up to $1,500. A divided
Sarasota County
Commission decided
on a 3-2 vote not to
pursue the program
locally.

BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

When the Hillsborough
County Commission recently
decided to provide military
families with a property tax
break if the head of house-
hold served overseas for at
least 45 days in a calendar
year, it set an uncomfortable
example for other Southwest
Florida communities.
On Jan. 24, the Sarasota
County Commission joined
others that have either decid-
ed to ignore the gesture or
reject another tax exemption
when it voted 3-2 not to
explore how much grants of
up to $1,500 would cut into
the county's annual tax rev-
enue.
"This would be strictly for
those heads of families who
are serving in places like
Afghanistan and Iraq," com-
missioner Paul Mercier said.
"I've checked through our
Veterans Affairs office and
with Congresswoman Kather-
ine Harris. We're talking about
50 families."
When commissioner Da-
vid Mills seconded Mercier's
motion to have staff explore
the tax break, it forced three
other commissioners to de-
clare themselves on a politi-
cally ticklish issue.
"What we're asking for is a
JLhnaklalrepltObin how muchh
'this would cost," Mills said.
It didn't take long.
"There are so many feel-
good things that we can put
on the table," commissioner
Nora Patterson said. "This is
very patriotic, and it may only
cost $75,000 to $100,000 a
year, but someone always has
to make up the difference. I'm
not going to support it."
When Mercier, a Vietnam
War veteran, recalled his
combat experience and re-
minded the commissioners
"it was not a feel-good thing,"
Patterson brought the discus-
sion to an uncomfortable
conclusion when she labeled
the remark a "cheap shot."
Mercier apologized.
No red tape
Last October, Hillsborough
County raised the bar on what
some would describe as a
"feel-good" property tax
break when it agreed to pro-
vide annual refunds of up to
$1,500 for members of the
armed services who annually
spent at least 45 days over-
seas.
The program is for resi-
dents of unincorporporated
Hillsborough County who
own homes and have re-
ceived a Florida Homestead
Tax Exemption. Cities within
the county Plant City, Tam-
pa and Temple Terrace are
not eligible, although Tampa
is weighing the option on its
own.
The Sarasota County Com-
mission does not easily em-
brace tax breaks for special
groups of people, as evi-
denced by its lengthy debate
over an additional $25,000
senior homestead tax break
for property owners with
modest annual incomes.
Florida lawmakers gave
counties and cities an option
to approve the additional
$25,000 tax break in 1998,
which many including the
town of Longboat Key and
city of Sarasota did. But
Sarasota County politicians
wrestled with it for several
years.


Finally, in 2002, the county
commission approved a
$5,000 additional property tax
break for seniors who have
homestead exemptions and
report less than $22,000 in


earned income to the Internal
Revenue Service.
It has passed up oppor-
tunities to increase the fig-
ure.
Several commissioners be-
lieve the 1998 senior tax ex-
emption law has a loophole
that allows wealthy people


who don't report tax-free
income to qualify for a break
that was intended for people
of low and moderate means.
There is no evidence to sup-
port that contention.
In fact, 2004' property
records show that only five
Longboat Key owners applied


for and received the break.
Four live in manufactured
homes at the north end of the
island, and the fifth is an
elderly woman who is dis-
abled and has lived in her
home for many years.
State Rep. Nancy Detert, R-

Venice, has said state law-

makers realized that checking
the reported income of every
property owner over age 65
who applies for the $25,000
exemption would create un-
necessary red tape, so they
adopted the tax break with-
out complex provisions.

state lawmakers have estab-

require property owners who
apply for the additional break
to qualify once. If their annu-
al incomes change, they must
voluntarily submit an updat-
ed report to the property
appraiser.

Developers can scrape before wildlife surveys submitted


Sarasota County could have tightened the policy on wildlife surveys and
earth-moving permits, but developers can still purchase earth-moving
\permits before they get surveys.


BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


A Sarasota County land


development regulation
loophole allows some devel-
opers to buy earth-moving
permits and bulldoze large


parcels before they obtain
surveys that verify there are
no endangered birds, snakes,
turtles or other protected


species present.\
The permit-issuing pro-
cess followed by county offi-
cials has apparently been
going on for a long time, and
managed to survived last
year's comprehensive plan
update process that was sup-
posed to tighten the policies


upon which codes and regu-
lations are based.
A recent exchange of e-
mails between county offi-
cials among them com-

various factors affecting your account balance, such as (a) the timing and amount of your payments, (b) the interest rate on your account, and (c) whether any fees or other charges are added to your account. You are always free to pay more than the minimum
monthly payment. The more you pay each month, the quicker your balance will be repaid and the lower your total finance charges will be. As an example, if you pay only the minimum payment each month and your account has no other activity or changes,
it would take approximately 52 months to pay off a $500 non-promotional purchase and approximately 116 months to pay off a $1,000 non-promotional purchase. However, if you paid double the minimum monthly payment each month, the $500 purchase
would be paid off in approximately 21 months, and the $1,000 purchase in approximately 39 months. If you have any questions about the amount of your minimum monthly payment or the repayment period, please call the customer service number on your

off the land are issued if a
developer promises to follow
species protection rules.
In one communication,
Meese explained that while a
"listed species survey" wasn't
required before the issuance
of a permit for one North
County project, there was a
stipulation that land clearing
must stop if "evidence" of a
protected species is discov-
ered by the developer.
The permit stipulation she
referred to reads: "This permit
does not authorize impacts to
listed species. If evidence of a
protected species is discov-
ered on-site, earth moving
shall cease in the area of effect
and the permitted shall con-
sult with the appropriate
wildlife agencies."
Coordination
Wildlife regulators provide
counties with lists of "endan-
gered" species, "threatened"
species and species of "special
concern." Developers who
receive county earth-moving
permits are supposed consult
with either federal or state
authorities about protection
measures.
Designated species often
found in Southwest Florida
include the Florida scrub jay,
American bald eagle, Sher-
man's fox squirrel, burrowing
owl, gopher tortoise, gopher
frog and east indigo snake.
Their burrows, nests and
habitat are also supposed to
be protected.
"We are required by the '
comprehensive plan to coor-
dinate with the agencies to
ensure listed species protec-
tion, unless more stringent
regulations are adopted by
the county," Meese explained
in one of her exchanges with
Thaxton.
"Our regulations do not
contain a codified prohibition
of (earth-moving permit) ap-
proval in absence of coordi-
she reminded Thaxton, "In
. the (comprehensive plan up-
date process) we added a pol-
icy statement about demon-
strating coordination."
A policy statement demon-
strating after-the-fact coordi-
nation, and regulations de-
manding coordination before
an earth-moving permit is
issued to a developer are two
distinctly different issues, as
was confirmed with the coun-
ty official who issues them to
developers.
"Ideally, we would hold
onto these permits until every
approval is in hand, every 'i' is
dotted and every 't' is
crossed," said Kelly Pluta, a
environmental specialist in
the natural resources division.
"We're not at that point in our
codes. Maybe one day we will
be." '
As matters stand, county
resource protection officials
will walk a large parcel and
attempt to determine wheth-
er there are signs of protected
species on the premises, but
they don't conduct the ex-
haustive surveys profession-
ally trained biologists are paid
to prepare for clients.
"We check our environ-
mental maps, visit the site
and look for species," Pluta
said. "If we're suspicious, we
ask for proof of coordination
with the appropriate wildlife
agencies. That's it. If they're
talking with the agencies, it
can trigger the issuance of a
permit."

Friday

The Phartists, that travel-
ing band of eight local pho-
tographers and artists, have
hit the road again, this time
bringing back stunning
paintings and photographs
from a two week expedition
to coastal Maine.
The show of those works
titled The Maine Encounter
will premiere with a reception
and party Thursday evening
at Collectors' Gallery, 213 W.
Venice Ave, 5;30-8 p.m. The
show will continue at the
gallery throughout the week-
end. The following week,
March 20-25, the show will
move to Studio B at 322
Seaboard Ave.
The Phartists consist of
renowned wildlife artists John
and Suzie Seerey-Lester, artist
Mary Jo Perkins (whose eight-
panel mural was just recently
unveiled at the new building
on the campus of the Pre-
school In The Pines) and her
husband, fine art photogra-
pher Jack Perkins (also known
for dabbling in television a
bit the past 30 years.)
Also in the group are
Maureen and Chuck Snyder,
and Dr. Bob and Jeri Woelfel.
Maureen is also a photogra-
pher but she takes her photo-
graphic images, prints them
on silk, and then beads them.
The Woelfels are both pho-
tographers.

If ever there was a time to
be green (or to at least wear
green), this would be the
week. And if the leprechaun
within you has come up with
a St. Patrick's Day limerick,
today, March 15, is the day
to deliver your entry to the
Crow's Nest, 1968 Tarpon
Center Drive. By hand-de-
livering it, you can inquire in
person about whether or not
the beer might run green on
Friday. If your limerick is the
best, you will receive a $100
gift certificate at the Crow's
Nest. Second to fifth place
winners will receive $25 gift
certificates. Entries also. may
be sent by fax to 485-9154 or
sent by 'e-mail to Srawlings

Final judging will take
place Friday, March 17 after 9

ing an Ancient Wisdom
Chanting Meditation each
Monday evening at Serenity

mood is meditative, relaxed,
peaceful and spiritual. This is
one of many new programs
made possible by the move to
new quarters. For more infor-

"Fields," a quilt by Pam Norris of Nokomis, features abstract
flowers and roots in the design.

Members of the Venice
Area Quilters' Guild will have
Venice in stitches Saturday
and Sunday, March 18 and 19,
when they hold show, Quilt-
ing bythe Gulf.
Sdtch by stitch, members
have gone far beyond the
quilts your grandmother
might have made.
While many examples of
those old-style quilts will be
included in the selection of
more than 250 quilts being
presented at the show, newer
quilts bare little resemblance
to those early designs, which
have names such as "LogL
Cabin" or "Wedding Ring."
Newer quilt designs bear
names such as "Fields" or
"Movement," two quilts made
by Pam Morris of Nokomis.
The first features a design of
abstract flowers and roots.
The second is made from
hand-dyed fabrics and will
be included in the Venice
show as will "What' I See
From My Window," which
the artist made from cloth
she had painted especially
for this project. That quilt is
further embellished with free
motion quilting, Angelina,
fibers and additional paint-
ing with a Shiva paintstick
(similar to a crayon but made
of oil paint).
What does she see from
her window?
"Bubbles," she said. "I am
looking at the Venice Inlet."
Morris has been quilting
for 22 years. She began the
year that Deborah Iverson
opened the Quilt Basket on
West Venice Avenue.
"I was running the antique
show at Epiphany that year,"


Morris said, "and I met
Deborah in her mother's
antique booth. Here was this
young lady sitting there quilt-
ing. I had never seen it done
before and I was hooked.
"She was going to open
her shop in two weeks, and I
was in the first class."
Today Morris is one office
or, six teachers at the shop,
has won countless awards
and has continued her stud-
ies by taking classes "with a
bend toward art" everywhere
from the Ringling School of
Art in Sarasota to major cities
throughout the United States.
One of her quilts was recent-
ly accepted for inclusion in a
juried show in Kentucky.
"The Venice Art Center has
had art shows where they
have given awards to quilted
pieces over paintings and
sculpture," she said.
Morris buys special "no
finish" white fabric for dying
and painting, ordering it
from out of town. Most other
fabrics she acquires at local
shops and she subscribes to
the quilters' favorite maga-
zine, "Quilting Arts."
"Quilting is my passion,"
Morris said. "I can't live with-
out it. If I get to plan my day,
I quilt.
"As much as five or six
hours if I am lucky," she
added.
Morris is one of the 300
guild members in ,Venice.
There also are that many or
more quilters in Sarasota.
The Venice group meets
on the fourth Wednesday of
the month at 7 p.m. at the
community center. Morris
said there were 180 at a re-
cent winter meeting. Meet-
ings feature presentations by
guest speakers rather than

quilting, which is done in
weekly "circles" in members'
homes.
Members range in age
from the 20s on up, with most
of the younger quilters in
their fourth decade.
At least one member may
be even more passionate
about quilting than Morris.
"My friend quilts with a
machine on her lap in the RV
while her husband drives,"
Morris said.
The mental picture of
that could inspire yet another
quilt design.
And Jo-Ann Golenia might
be just the one to do it. Like
Morris, Golenia is a prize-
winner who has gravitated
to art quilts.
"I draw an image or use a
photo as a starting point for
my work," she said. "I often
fuse fabric to fabric and use
inks and paint to enhance
the work. I prefer to machine
quilt these pieces."
She gets many ideas from
nature and also from human
faces.
"I find beauty wherever I

Zoology club helps preserve scrub jay habitat at Oscar Scherer


. I, .



Venice High School Zoology Club members with Bill Gruber,
Oscar Scherer park, ranger.


The Venice High School Zoology Club conducted a
community service project at Oscar Scherer State Park
Feb. 27. This year the zoology club's conservation pro-
ject is to conserve the habitat of the Blorida scrub jay.
Club members spent the morning pulling out cogon
grass, which has been ranked as one of the top 10
worst weeds in the world. The cogon grass is invading
Florida scrub jay habitat at Oscar Scherer. Those in
attendance were Emily Young, president, Brett Nelson,
treasurer, Barry Rossheim, club sponsor, and mem-
\bers Ashley Capdarest, Amber Fichenberg, Nick Gis-
sal, Anthony Gouthro, Jesse Holtz, Kevin Krejnik,
Robert Marvin, Samantha Oakes, Katie Pfost and Dan
Verchot.

the children at Oak Park

asked to create artwork for
the Car and Craft show
fundraiser.
First-, second- and third-
place winners from the ele-

Oak Park South shares a
campus with Venice Middle
School but has unique needs
separate from VMS.
For example, the VMS
media center is not set up for
the elementary students.
They need specialized high-
interest books for the literary
success of the older students;
expansion of the Read Nat-
urally program for in-school
and at-home use; a school-
wide writing program design-
ed for the specific needs of
these students; and replace-
ment of aging technology in
order to keep up with current
software programs.
These are just-some of the
irrmmediate needs.
The Oak Park South PTSO
is looking for a club or organi-
zation to adopt them. The

Race raises awareness

of Alopecia Areata


J.J. Andrews
BACK OF THE PACK
Many people assume I
have nice clothes, -simply
because I wear a tie and work
in an office.
Those people are wrong.
My closet is filled with clear-
ance-rack shoes, decade-old
ties and dress shirts in the
"nice" category because there
are no stains and all the but-
tons are attached.
So when The Fiancee and I
decided to go with a suit
instead of tuxedo for our
beach wedding next month,
that required venturing into
the world of men's fashion
where a thirtysomething guy
must choose between clothes
made for the Backstreet Boys
or those designed for a funer-
al director.
It hasn't been easy, and as
of press time, I have yet to
find something just right.
Part of the problem was
finding the right size. The last
jacket I purchased was more
than six years and 60 pounds
ago, and was a 52 regular (I
have two of them hanging in
my closest if you don't believe
me).
As I found out last week-
end, a size 46 jacket is too
large and makes me look
dumpy, while a 44 fits JUST
right everywhere except
around the midsection. The
44 jackets I tried buttoned
with barely any room to
spare, meaning the slightest
weight gain and it'll be too
small.
As it is, I tend to look goofy
whenever standing next to
The Fiancee. Seriously. I have
the photos to prove it.
So what's a guy to do less
than two months out from his

Power of a comment
Nearly 20 years ago, I was 48 years old and 25
pounds overweight. A business customer of mine
had just discovered running and was trying to
recruit me. I might add that he was also several
years younger than me.
I told him that by the end of the day, my legs
ached just from being on my feet.
His response, "Get yourself in shape and

Thanks, Bill, for the advice. Since then I have
been able to complete a hundred 5K races, 10
marathons and five 50K trail runs. I have con-
trolled my weight, and my legs feel better now
than they did then..

Burning calories
As I look through the Back
of the Pack column archives,
weight loss and calorie count-
ing has been a popular sub-
ject.
As I look at the weight
scale, however, little has
changed.
Perhaps that is a good sign,
and I am supposed to main-
tain a healthy weight of 205
pounds (I topped out at 265
pounds) and dreams of tip-
ping the scales at 185 and
qualifying for the Boston
Marathon are simply out of
reach.
And then my April edition
of Runner's World arrives in
my mailbox, complete with
the story of a guy who lost 100
pounds down from 265 -
and qualified for the Boston
Marathon.
(This is where I want to
write a handful of words my
mother still thinks I do not
know.)
Consequently, his story
reminds me that it's back to


And this all happened because of his com-
ment.
Mickey Johnson, 67, Nokomis, who
placed third in the 65-69 age group
with a time of 4 hours, 35 minutes and 4
seconds at the March 5 marathon (26.2 miles)

Never too old
"Never too old! Think young, act so and do it."
Those are the words of 80-year-old Venice resi-
dent Ted Jednak, who completed the Half
Marathon in Sarasota on March 5.
Ted attributes his ability to healthy diet, a lot of
exercise, working out regularly, training and rac-
ing.
With a wall full of ribbons, awards, trophies he
has been a regular feature at the various 5K races,
leaving many to say, "Hope we can run like you
when we are 80."
"Continue running no matter what, stay
healthy, keep a smile on your face and thank God
daily for doing what you are able to do each day,"
are Ted's key pieces of advice.
Ted Jednak, 80, Venice, finished the
half marathon (13.1 miles) in
3:20:08 and ahead of 96 other runners.


calorie counting and ice-
cream deprivation for the
next seven weeks.
Here are a few tips, taken
from the April edition of
Runner's World, on slimming
down:
Mileage increase "By
running five to 10 more miles
a week, you'll bum an extra
500 to 1,000 weekly calories,"
writes Jason Karp on page 82.
Running farther also encour-
ages the body to bum fat as
fuel, according to the article. I
run four times a week, so I
can do this simply by adding
1-2 miles on each of those
runs.
Run longer Not only
will a 15-mile run burn at
least 1,500 calories, but it also
will boost your postrun
metabolism rate, Karp writes.
This means I can either
reward myself with guilt-free


ice cream following a long
run, or skip the sugar treat in
order to capitalize on my
calorie burning.
Two-a-days This is a
personal favorite, mostly
because there are only four
decent days each week I can
run due to my crazy work and
social schedule. If I'm not at
the newspaper, then I'm help-
ing The Fiancee plan a wed-
ding. On those four running
days, however, I can squeeze
in a quick night run of 3-4
miles. Aside from workout
calories burned, there's also
the second elevated postrun
metabolism rate.

On April 1, 2006, the
Manasota Track Club will
sanction the Second annual
5K run to benefit NAAF
(National Alopecia Areata
Foundation) at Siesta Key
Beach.
Shortly after moving to
Sarasota in 2003,1 I discovered
the Manasota Track Club. I
was thrilled to find an organi-
zation where I could continue
to enjoy my passion for run-
ning and meet people with
similar interests.
After living in Philadelphia
for 30 years, moving to a new
town was an adjustment
made even more difficult by
the fact that I had recently
been diagnosed with
Alopecia Universalis.
Alopecia Areata (Universalis)
is a highly unpredictable,
autoimmune skin disease
resulting in the loss of hair on
the scalp and elsewhere on
the body.
In varying degrees, this dis-
ease affects approximately 1.7
percent of the overall popula-
tion, including 4.7 million
people in this country. We live
in an appearance-driven cul-
ture where baldness pro-
duces stares and hurtful com-

The fact that most people
are unaware of this disease,
being affected with Alopecia
creates a profound emotional
impact on one's life and func-
tional status. Baldness is a

People react differently to
you.
While Alopecia is not life
threatening or medically dis-
abling (most of us are very
healthy) it is life altering.
Alopecia is an appearance-
altering disease and is
extremely emotionally chal-
lenging. It affects children
and adults. As of today, there
is no cure.
I've decided to place
myself in the public eye and
to sacrifice personal privacy
to help promote a public
awareness ofAlopecia, as well
as to raise funds in the hopes
of finding a cure for this very
challenging and capricious
disease. It is my hope that by
being involved in fundraisers
of this type, we can raise pub-
lic awareness to this disease
as well as generate funds for
research, treatment and pro-
vide resources for those
affected with Alopecia.
Join us on April 1 for this
very worthy cause.


body check
JySS during a game of
b "f/ hockey may seem to be a very
a dangerous element of the sport. The
I fact is, though, that a study of 2,630
boy hockey players over two seasons
showed that high-impact body checks cause
fewer injuries to young players than accidental
collisions or falling into the boards or onto the
ice. Legal body checks accounted for 12% of
injuries while illegal checks caused 17%. The
study showed that introducing checking into
nine-year-olds' games produced a spike in
injuries; however, injury levels declined to
previous levels within a year once the players
adjusted to giving/receiving body checks. The best
way to safeguard players is with protective
equipment and a proper knowledge of the game.

Surviving the Everglades with your son


-~Ij


I DAVE BARRY
HUMOR COLUMNIST

*EDITOR'S NOTE: This
classic Dave Barry column
was originally published
Nov. 10, 1996.
If you're looking to get
away from civilization and
experience the serenity that
comes from being out in
nature's wilderness beauty,
and having the vast majority
of the blood sucked out of
your body, then you should
rent a houseboat in the
Everglades.
I did this recently with my
son, Rob. We rented our
houseboat at a place called
Flamingo, in Everglades
National Park, waaaaay down
on the bottom of Florida. At
that point, Florida has totally
stopped pretending to be a
normal United State such as
Pennsylvania, the kind of
state that has been construct-
ed in compliance with the
Official State Building Code
on a solid foundation of dirt
and rocks. Lower Florida
looks like solid ground in
places; but it's actually a
gigantic floating clotted mass
of decaying vegetation and
shed snakeskins, drifting on a
sea of aromatic water and
muck. You get the feeling that
you need to keep moving,
because if you stand still too
long, you'll sink into the clot
until the only thing sticking
up is your head, which a bird
Will come along and build a
nest on.
:There's wildlife everywhere
down there. Maybe too much
of it. For example, when we
arrived at the Flamingo mari-
na, we drove into a parking
lot; which sloped down gently
to a boat-launching ramp
into the water, and lying on
this ramp, watching us, were

life of Ethel

Waters

STAFF REPORT

When Jannie Jones trav-
eled to Sarasota in early
September, she didn't expect
to still be here today.
But Jones, who originally
came down to appear in
"Ethel Waters: His Eye is on
the Sparrow" was subse-
quently cast in FST's Cabaret
tribute to the piano greats of
the 20th century, "Piano
Men," which runs through
March 25.
Now Jones's stay will be
even longer thanks to Florida
Studio Theatre's decision to
bring back the popular
Mainstage opener. Written by
Sarasota playwright Larry
Parr, Ethel Waters: His Eye is
on the Sparrow will return to
FST, playing a limited engage-
ment run in the Gompertz
Theatre, beginning March 30.
Switching gears from
"Ethel Waters," the show, to
"Piano Men" was a welcome
challenge, and change, for
Jones.
I"1 underwent a complete
mental change," she said. "I
went from a very intense
place in my head, playing a
real-life person who lived
such an incredible life, to
rehearsing for Piano Men,
where I was in a very creative
place where I could play and
discover, 'Who is this charac-
ter and where do I want to
take here?'"

Please see FST, 9B


three major alligators. They
were lined up parallel to each
other, halfway out of the
water, as though a National
Park Service employee had
been in the middle of launch-
ing them, but then he
stopped for some reason,
such as they ate him.
I was frankly concerned
about being in an alligator-
infested parking lot, and it did
not help that Rob kept
reminding me how fast alliga-
tors can move over land.
Reminding people how fast
alligators can move is a long-
standing Florida tradition.
"Over short distances, an alli-
gator can outrun a horse,"
people will say. Or: "In 1983,
the Air Force tracked an alli-
gator going 387 miles per
hour."
Fortunately, alligators
don't corner well, so if one is
chasing you get ready for
an Alligator Safety Tip -,
you're supposed to run in cir-


cles. I'm serious.
Schoolchildren are taught
this in Florida, while children
in other states are learning to
read.
So anyway, by moving in
precautionary circles, Rob
and I managed to get safely
aboard our rental houseboat,
named the "Spoonbill." I'm
qualified to operate a house-
boat because I have nautical
experience, consisting of
owning a boat for a couple of
years. During this time, I
learned the principles of nav-
igation, because every week I
had to navigate my car to the
marine-supplies store to buy
boat parts. in a never-ending
effort to get the boat fixed up
to the point where the engine
would start.
Altogether, I probably have
close to 45 minutes of experi-
ence driving a boat on actual
water, so you can imagine
how competent I felt when I
took the helm (or "forecastle")


of the Spoonbill, which is the
size of a standard junior high
school, only not as maneu-
verable. The way you drive a
houseboat is, you turn the
wheel to the right (or
"mizzen"), then you go make
a sandwich and take a nap. By
the time you get back to the
helm, the boat is just starting
to turn right, which means it's
time for you to turn the wheel
back to the left.
Using this procedure, we
navigated through a canal out
to Whitewater Bay, which gets
its name from the fact that
the water is brown. There we
were able to really "open up"
the throttle and get the
Spoonbill moving at her top
speed, which (I am estimat-
ing here) is zero. We didn't
care. We weren't out there to
get somewhere; we were out
there to experience directly
the natural beauty of the
Everglades, which look today
very much as they did thou-


sands of years ago to the first
Native Americans to arrive
here, except that the Native
Americans didn't have a gen-
erator, climate control, hot
water, full kitchen, shower,
flush toilet, refrigerator and
enough groceries to feed the
Green Bay Packers for a
month.
That evening, we dropped
anchor maybe 100 yards from
a mangrove island,, many
miles from any sign of civi-
lization. We stood on the
deck, and, as the sun set, we
experienced a sensation that I
will never forget: the- sensa-
tion of being landed on by
every mosquito in the
Western Hemisphere. There
were so many of them that
they needed Air Traffic
Control mosquitoes to give
directions ("OK, No.
86,742,038, you have clear-
ance to land on his left elbow,
but make it quick, because
he's almost out of blood").


So we hustled inside the
Spoonbill and spent the
evening admiring the natural
wonder and beauty of. air
conditioning. Meanwhile,
just outside the window, the
mosquitoes formed a huge
swirling committee to discuss-
the feasibility of sending a
search party back to the
mainland for a glass-cutter.
But we made it through the
night OK, and we ended up
having a fine weekend, which
was diminished only slightly
by the fact that when we got
back to Flamingo, it had sunk
without a trace.
No, it was still there. But if
you're planning to go, you
should call ahead, just in
case. And if an alligator
answers, hang up.

"Ethel Waters: His Eye is on
the Sparrow" chronicles the
life of a woman who came
from the bottom and, despite
all the odds, found her way to
the top. Born in 1896 to a
teenage rape victim, Ethel
Waters pulled herself out of
abject poverty to become one
of the foremost African-
American performers of her
generation. Her career
spanned more than seven
decades and took her
from vaudeville stages to
Broadway and Hollywood.
Looking at Waters' life,
there were not a lot of options
or choices for an African-
American woman, particular-
ly one in Waters' impover-
ished circumstances. But she
didn't let the lack of opportu-
nity stop her.
"The inspiration of this
piece is that in order to get to
reach your full potential, you
have to keep moving," said
the show's director Dennis
Courtney. "That's the mes-
sage. You've got to do it.'It
won't come to you. Ethel
made her own life happen."
For now, audiences will
have to wait another eight
weeks or so to see Jones
reprise her role as Ethel
Waters. But they can catch her
in the Cabaret revue, "Piano
Men," appearing alongside
Scott J. Pearson and David
Abeles.
"Piano Men runs through
March 25, 2006 in the FST
Goldstein Cabaret. Tickets are
$26-29.
"Ethel Waters: His Eye is on
the Sparrow" begins its limit-
ed engagement run March 30,
in the Gompertz Theatre.


Tickets are $32-34.
Tickets for either "Piano
Men" or "Ethel Waters" may
be purchased by calling 366-

Test results not a measure


of teaching ability


LYNN REIFERT
CORRESPONDENT

A high school student told
her tutor that she had just
taken the NRT test at school.
She said, 'At first I was ner-
vous about the test. Then
someone told me that it was-
n't a big test, just a test to see
how much to pay my teacher.
It wasn't that important."
It may sound like a good
idea to pay teachers accord-
ing to how well their students
perform, based on test
results, but it isn't. It doesn't
make sense and is totally
unfair.
This method of determin-
ing a teacher's worth doesn't
take into account many vari-
ables. There are too many fac-
tors that could affect student
progress rates that even the
best teachers can't control.
For example, student per-
formance and rate of progress
can be dependent on I.Q.
We are not all born with
the same academic poten-
tials. If, by the luck of the
draw, a teacher is handed a
class with more students in
the lower-average intellectual
range, she is less likely to see a
higher rate of progress than a
teacher whose class is com-
posed of more pupils with


above-average scholastic apt-
itudes.
Student performance in a
class can also depend on such
things as level of academic
motivation, socioeconomic
levels of students, family sta-
bility issues, family lifestyles
and whether the first lan-
guage of the student is
English.
If a class were composed
of more students who do
not come from families that
provide enrichment and mo-
tivate their children to do
well in school, then progress
could be limited regardless of
the teacher's involvement.
Kenneth D. Peterson,
Ph.D., answers the question,
"Can, and should, teachers
be evaluated using student
learning data?" on his Web
site, www.teacherevaluation.
net.
He states that pupil
achievement data should be
used for some teachers, how-
ever, "Pupil achievement
data should not be tied to
teacher pay. There are not
enough data for all teachers,
and ensuing competition
would be too disruptive.
"Such connections of per-
formance and compensation
have been tried before and
failed, and it would detract
from other developments to
address personnel issues
using pupil data."
Administrators, at the "re-
'quest" of politicians, are
looking for an objective,
simpler way to evaluate
teachers. They are looking
for a way to acquire and keep
the best ones in our schools.
The importance of doing this
cannot be overestimated.
Though it seems that .the


most obvious measure of a
good teacher would be how
much his or her students
progressed, it would definite-
ly be a highly complex un-
dertaking. It would involve
technical requirements, such
as "gains adjusted for prior
achievement," which would
take into account increases
in students during the influ-
ence of the teacher, adjusted
according to ,the students'
prior achievement.
Yet, should the schools
adopt this complicated, most
likely .expensive process, it
would still not be fair to
teachers.
Peterson says that the use
of pupil achievement data in
teacher evaluation is one of
the most intriguing and im-
portant questions of value
today. The question of how
to recognize good teachers,
and eliminate ineffective
ones, is not an easy one to
answer.
Unfortunately, attempting
to solve the problem by us-
ing pupil achievement data
is not going to work. And, it
may actually have the effect
of driving more good teachers
out of the profession.

'Hat' at Goodwill


BY RACHEL ALEXANDER
STAFF WRITER


Goodwill usually isn't the
first place collectors shop for
art.
But they might want to
start checking it out.
No one knows who donat-
ed what appears to be a
Bernard Buffet lithograph,
which may be worth as
much as $2,000, to the Good-
will Industries-Manasota
Inc. store on Indiana Avenue
in Englewood.
"It was a donation," said
Rod Hughes, store manager.
"I have no idea. We don't
know if it came in through
home service or it ,was a
donation at the door."
Although Goodwill em-
ployees believe the art could
be worth more, the piece
did not come with a letter of
authenticity. And the em-
ployees did not w~ant to rip
off the back of the lithograph
to inspect it and try to verify


its value.
So Goodwill has it for sale
for $499.
Hughes said the 1960
lithograph appears to be an
original of Buffet's "Woman
with Hat." The number "63"
and the edition size of 300 are
written by hand on the print.
On the lower right comer is
Bernard Buffet's signature.
Bernard Buffet, born in
Paris in 1928, became popu-
lar in the 1950s for his figura-
tive and landscape art.
In January, the Web site
Liveauctioneers.com offered
a lithograph of "Woman with
Hat," described as a litho-
graph on arches (a type of
paper), plate-signed and
pencil-numbered. The item
online is number 68 of 300.
It is offered by the Ro Gallery
with an estimate of $1,800-
$2,200. The print measures
22 inches by 27 inches.
The same print is currently
offered on the PicassoMio
Web site for $1,800. It is


described as:
"An original artwork by
master artist Bernard Buffet.
He paints with an intensity
of feeling, and therefore has
the ability to evoke it. His
line is harsh and arrow-like
and his palette is dark in
color with blacks and grays
predominating, although he
does, sometimes, use lumi-
nous colors.
"His rigorous gothic art is
a reflection of his own per-
sonality: individualistic, ele-
gant, sober, solitary and
melancholy."
Hughes said that when
Goodwill receives donations
that appear to be valuable,
employees will often re-
search the piece.
Along with "Woman with
Hat," Goodwill' received a
second Buffet piece, which
has already sold for $250.

look, even in the folds of a
skirt," Golenia said.
Artists of all types have
always been at the forefront
when it comes to accepting
technological advances from
scissors to sewing machines
to fabric paints and dyes.
Even the Maories of New
Zealand, who pass their histo-
ry down as wood carvings use
modem wood stains to em-
bellish those designs. Morris
and Golenia are not alone in
their adoption of paint
sticks, dyes and other find-
ings for the embellishment
of their work.
Golenia currently is focus-
ing on the human face and
images from natures, often


plants.
Englewood quilter Irene
Piggott used to paint with
oils. Eight years ago she began
painting with fabric, often
using tiny snippets of fabric
for the basis of her work and
then embellishing the fabric
with thread drawing. Using
her sewing machine, she
adds still more detail to her
projects. Look for her quilt,
"Wild Myakka" in the week-
end show. She earned a blue
ribbon in the 2004 Venice
show for her quilt entitled
"Rattlesnake River."
Traditional quilts
still popular
For a variety of reasons,


the old patterns will most
likely account for more than
half the quilts shown at the
community center.
"It is easier to begin with
a traditional pattern," Morris
said. "People sew for differ-
ent reasons, some for ther-
apy, some for relaxation."
And some simply prefer
the old patterns.
Cathy Washburn is a Sara-
sota quilter who prefers to
make quilts that would have
been right at home in the
19th century. She prefers to
make quilts, which appear
old, rather than to buy them.
Her efforts have garnered
awards in Pigeon Forge,
Tenn., Sarasota and in the
Country Road Quilters show
in Ocala.
Last year she made a
small crazy quilt in response
to a guild challenge. Unlike
Morris who is relatively new
to quilting, Washburn made
her first quilt when she was
about 10, while visiting her
grandmother, a professional
seamstress.
Washburn was part of a
group called "Treadle On" that
made a Treadle Quilt. Every
block was constructed on
treadle or hand-crank sewing
machines and signed by its
maker. Washburn joined the
blocks together with her
antique Singer sewing ma-
chine and then finishing the
quilting process by hand.
Other Washburn projects
include "Dear Jane," which
was made from antique
reproduction fabrics and
"Butterfly," which was based
on patterns from the Butter-
fly Hope pattern.
New to the show this year
is a "turning" of antique
quilts. A stack of quilts will
be turned, one by one, with
a description of the history
of each quilt.
Show visitors will be able to

Artist teaches in Venice and Englewood


BYJAN FINDLEY
CORRESPONDENT

When you hear about
Sandi Olsen and see the di-
versity of subjects and tech-
niques she employs as an
artist plus the range of skills
she has acquired from art
to marketing and merchan-
dising to managing the Swim
Mart store in Merchants
Crossing you won't be
blamed if you say, "She's got it
all she can do anything!"
Well, not anything. There
are some things she hasn't
tried as yet. She's about to
shrink that latter category by
teaching small classes from
now through April.
"I've worked with people,
one on. one, but I've never
actually taught classes. Not
until now, anyway," is how
she phrased it when asked
why she has decided to
become a teacher as well as a
practitioner of art now, for the
first time.
You can find samples of
Olsen's art at the Englewood
Art Center (the Beaux Arts
Gift Shop) where her one-of-
a-kind floral paintingsplus
notes, copies and jewelry are
for sale.
Rather than teach a class of
25 to 50 people, Olsen is com-
bining her experience as a
one-on-one helpmate with
her multi-media skills to
become a teacher of small
groups groups small
enough to allow her to give
each student lots of individ-
ual attention.,
She figures this approach
will have'appeal to both those
who know their way around a
color wheel and those who
have never dipped a brush
into paint.
She calls her about-to-
become classes 'Artistic Ex-
plorations."
Her classes will provide
opportunities for each mem-
ber to learn something new
about their medium of
choice, to learn the basics of
several techniques or if
one is a rank beginner in two-
dimensional art to learn,
