Detert bill adds teeth


to child abuse law

Venice's state representative has filed a bill to close
loopholes in a law prosecutors said wasn't violated by
teachers slamming children to the floor at a local
day-care center

Bomb scare shuts down city hall


BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


Bomb-detecting dogs, countert-
errorism units and nearly every
available police officer were called
to downtown Venice because of two
guys looking for a bite to eat and a
swim at the beach.
In addition, city hall and a one-
block area around it were cordoned
off and evacuated.
Tomaz Meireles and Fabio Silva
had just dropped off a shipment of
medical supplies at Venice Regional
Medical Center. There were no spots
large enough to park their trucks
downtown, so shortly after 9 a.m.,
they parked on Granada Avenue
next to city hall and Venice Fire
Station No. 1.
The two hopped out and walked


back to a downtown restaurant for
breakfast before a planned dip in
the gulf and then driving back to
Orlando. Meireles had never been to
a beach before, and this was only
Silva's second time going to the
beach.
When they came back 30 min-
utes later to grab their beach towels,
there were police cars, barricades
and law enforcement officers every-
where.
"We'd just finished our job and
was going to the beach," Silva said.
"We saw that and thought, 'Man,
what's going on?'"
Meireles and Silva walked slowly
around the barricades until they
realized it was their trucks causing
all the commotion. Both wore a look
of "Uh-oh," which drew the atten-
tion of several police officers, a


Venice Gondolier Sun reporter ob-
served.
Within five minutes of talking to
the men, the alert was canceled and
evacuation called off.
"As soon as they saw us, I think
they knew it was a mistake," Meir-
eles said.
Like clockwork
Police and fire department offi-
cials and City Manager Marty Black
all were satisfied with how the situa-
tion was handled.
"Our people did everything the
way they were supposed to," VPD
Sgt. Tom McNulty said. "I'm really
proud of them."

Dan McGoogan, Venice firefighters

It's the last bill Rep. Nancy Detert
will ever file in the Florida
Legislature.
HB 1239 proposes a fairly simple
change in the law, but one that
could have far-reaching implica-
tions redefining child abuse to
include "inappropriate or excessive-
ly harsh corporal discipline of a
child by a parent, legal custodian or
caregiver."
Detert filed the bill on Feb. 22 in
reaction to Sarasota County prose-
cutors' decision last year not to pur-
sue criminal charges of child abuse
against employees at the former
Early Childhood Center (now Pre-
school on the Pines) at Venice Pres-
byterian Church.
The Venice Police Department
filed 29 complaints in March 2005
against two then-current and four
former employees of ECC. Among
them were several allegations that
two former teachers had engaged in
"jacking" lifting a child off the
ground, then dropping him or her
with force.
Assistant State Attorney Steve
Zimath, who declined to prosecute
the charges, said i- "did not

A significant factor in the deci-
sion not to prosecute was the rever-
sal on appeal of the conviction of
Paul King, an administrator at Char-
lotte Regional Christian Academy,
for felony child abuse for paddling
of one of his students.
Parents of each student at the
academy signed a form consenting
to corporal punishment.
The Second District Court of
Appeal ruled that "significant bruis-
es or welts" that do not require med-
ical treatment do not rise even to the
lower level of nonaggravated child

Nap time

Tropical Bob was distressed
to read recently that Spain is
discontinuing siesta time.
It seems employers there
won't pay for lunch time fol-
lowed by an afternoon nap, so
employees weren't getting
enough family time. They
were spending 12 hours work-
ing and commuting.
The sleep break had to go.
T.B. fears the conse-
quences. Sleep-deprived dri-
vers will plow into each other
on the commute home. Mar-
riages will fall apart from too
much togetherness. Product-
ivity will decline as workers
snooze at their desks.
Take note, employers. Naps
are good. Siestas are needed.
Eliminate them at your peril.

Little Known Famous Floridians


BY JOE "FAST HORSE" HARRILL
BILLY BOWLEGS was born
in 1810 to full-blooded Semi-
nole parents. He was called
Holata Mico, which means Al-
ligator Chief. It is not certain
when or why he acquired his
nickname. As a hereditary
war chief, Bowlegs com-
manded a band of Florida
Seminole Indians in a 20-year
battle to resist efforts by U.S.
authorities to remove them to
Oklahoma, eluding capture
long after groups led by other
Seminole chiefs had been
apprehended and deported.
After signing the Payne's
Landing ,Treaty of 1832, he


continued to fight the army
and to raid settlements until
he secured the Peace Treaty of
1842. Peace prevailed until
1855, when a confrontation
between Bowlegs' Seminoles
and U.S. Army engineers
resulted in two more years of
war. Bowlegs finally agreed to
banishment from Florida in
1858. He arrived in Oklahoma
to become a prominent chief
in the Indian Territory. When
the Civil War started, Bowlegs
joined the Union Army. He
served in Kansas as a captain
of the First Regiment, Indian
Home Guard. He died of
'smallpox in 1864. .

Do you know who's in your school?


A new school policy should help the district
better inform its schools about incoming
students who've previously been expelled or had
run-ins with the law. Educators say the policy will
protect others and help troubled students get the
services they need before it's too late.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

If you assume school ad-
ministrators and teachers
know the background of
every student who enters a
public school, you're wrong.
According to Barbara
Chomko, director of high
school education for the
Sarasota County School Dis-
trict, schools often find out
about previous expulsions
when interviewing incoming
students and their parents or
guardians.
However, sometimes the
information isn't volunteered,
say officials, much to the cha-
grin of unsuspecting teachers
and students.
A new policy under con-
sideration by the school
board would require incom-
ing students to provide the
information.
The proposed policy reads:
'Any student who initially
enrolls in the district shall be
required to report any previ-
ous school expulsions, arrests
resulting in a charge, and
juvenile justice actions the
student has had." The board
adopted the policy for public
comment earlier this month.
Deferred
County school administra-
tors say very few students are
actually expelled from school
- only two last year, accord-
ing to district officials. But
there were 310 recommenda-
tions for expulsion.
A third of those (102)
accepted deferred expulsions
for lesser infractions agree-


ing not to break the rules
again and to seek some
advice from the school's guid-
ance counseling department.
Of the deferred expulsion
agreements, 48 were at mid-
dle schools, 45 at high
schools, and nine at elemen-
tary schools.
Those who committed
more serious offenses (193)
and their parents or guar-
dians were required to sign a
settlement agreement in
order to remain in school.
Those who don't agree are
immediately expelled from
the district, but that rarely
happens, say administrators.
Students who sign a settle-
ment agreement are moved
to an alternative school like
Infinity Middle School in
Sarasota, Richard Milburn
Academy, YMCA Triad with
campuses in Sarasota and
Venice, or Gulf Coast Marine
Institute in Venice. It's a sec-
ond chance to stay in school,
even after a serious infrac-
tion. For many, it's often their
last chance.
Infractions
District records show rec-
ommendations for expul-
sions spanned grades one-12,
with the highest numbers in
grades eight and nine.
Of the expellable offenses,
the largest number was for
drugs (130), mostly for pos-
session of marijuana and
paraphernalia.
Another 51 were for
weapons possession, al-
though those numbers
decreased 16 from the prior
school year. Thirty-four cases

Gulf Coast Marine Institute-South in Venice is an alternative school for students whose expulsions are in abeyance. The average
stay is six months before students return to their home school. The school currently enrolls 51. Gulf Coast staff, from left, include

involved knives, which is a
decrease of 11 from 2003-04.
Deferred expulsions and
settlement expulsions are de-
signed to stop students from
being permanently expelled,
school officials say. Most act-
ual expulsions, they say, are
due to kids who simply stop
going to school, breaching
their agreements.
"Most expulsions are put
on abeyance as long as the
student attends one of the
alternative schools," said
Chomko. "If they complete
the settlement agreement,


expulsion is removed from
their record."
Making it official
The proposed policy gives
the district final say in whe-
ther to allow a student with
previous run-ins with the law
entry into Sarasota County
public schools.
School officials may waive
the previous expulsion and
allow an incoming student to
enroll, or it may honor the
final order of expulsion or dis-
missal of a student if the act
would have been grounds for


expulsions according to Sara-
sota County's own Code of
Student Conduct, effectively
keeping those students from
ever enrolling in Sarasota
County schools.
Landings officials say the
district already follows this
practice when the informa-
tion is volunteered by an
incoming student or his or
her parent or guardian, r -
when it's discovered duri
registration.

Venice-area sidewalks up for debate Tuesday


The county commission is encountering a new
kind of opposition: not in my front yard.


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

They wanted sidewalks in
their neighborhoods previ-
ously, but when the county
got ready to install them the
residents they are supposed
to serve start balking.
Such was the case a month
ago when residents along
Gondola Drive in Jacaranda
West complained they don't
want a sidewalk that's sup-
posed to link the neighbor-
hood to Garden Elementary
School. The sidewalk would
also run along Sklar Drive.
On Tuesday, the Sarasota
County commissioners will
decide whether they want to
move forward with the pro-


ject against the neighbor-
hood's wishes.
This sidewalk project may
not be the .._.
only one up '
for debate, as
commission- -
er Shannon
Staub has
heard from
residents in '"
V e n i c e Staub
Gardens who
now say they don't want a
planned sidewalk.
"I don't know what is going
on there," Staub said of the
neighborhood during a re-
cent board meeting. "I have
people in Overbrook Gardens
who want sidewalks. I have a
lot of people who want them.


I fought to get them and now
no one wants them."
Conflicting desires
Julia Robbins, who lives
along the path of the pro-
posed sidewalk within Venice
Gardens, said she sees no
need for such a sidewalk in
her community.
"This is not a sidewalk
walking-type of community,"'
Robbins said. "Maybe people
wanted it a long time ago, but
why would we want our lives
disrupted when they put the
thing in when no one will ever
use it?"
While it is unclear what the
status of the opposition to the
sidewalks within Venice
Gardens really is, Staub said
that if the community wants
to drop out of the county's
sidewalk program, the county
could shift the money to


another project.
"Englewood wants side-
walks," Staub said. "So do a lot
of other people. I am not sure
what happened."
George and Gladys Vernon
said they own a vacation
home within Overbrook Gar-
dens and believe the side-
walks will improve safety.
"We have a lot of traffic in
here during season and side-
walks are what we need,"
George Vernon said. "Every-
one walks. It would make this
community nicer than it
already is."
County Administrator Jim
Ley said the idea of shifting
money to other projects
would be examined.
Typically, since the coun-
ty's neighborhood sidewalk
program is part of the infra-
structure surtax extension,
any change would need full


board approval and possibly
a public hearing.
Staub said she wanted the
county Public Works depart-
ment to confirm the Venice
Gardens neighborhood wish-
es before making any
changes.
Ley added that is rare for a
neighborhood to first want
sidewalks and then object.
"It is a long process," he
said. "We will look into it."
Complaints
Regarding Gondola and
Sklar drives, the commission-
ers heard from more than a
dozen residents during their
Feb. 21 meeting when resi-
dents came to protest the
planned sidewalk.
Residents first complained
the sidewalks weren't needed
because there are no children
in the neighborhood, and


then they complained the
proposed path would cut out
large portions of the front
lawns of the homeowners
along the path.
The sidewalk program in
the area was intended to pro-
vide a connection between
Jacaranda Boulevard and
Center Road.
According to the paper-
work, any other proposed
pathway would eliminate the
connection possibilities. On
Tuesday, the board will have a
discussion on the status of
the Gondola Drive project
and could expand it to other
sidewalk projects.
The meeting is 9 a.m. at
the Robert L. Anderson
Administration Center .on
U.S. 41 in South Venice.
There will be no public
input during the sidewalk
portion of the meeting.

The boundaries of the
planning area are Jacaranda
Boulevard to the west, North
River Road to the east, Int-

one block south of East
Venice Avenue to the south.
County commissioners
imposed a temporary mora-
torium on zoning changes in
the planning area pending
completion of the plan.
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.

Others want to leave flexi-

developer does buy their
property the owner would be
able to sell at a higher price.
The planning commis-
sioners spent two meetings
trying to iron out the lan-
guage while staff was seeking
input mainly on generic con-
cepts.
The county commission-
ers will see the plan and offer
new suggestions, if they have
any, as well as hear public
input during the hearing.
The county staff will then
draft an ordinance incorpo-
rating the suggestions from
the community, the planning
commission and the county
commissioners.
The entire ordinance will
then need county commis-
sion approval before it goes
into effect.
Along with the recommen-
dations, the planning board
forwarded a request to be
able to review the final ordi-
nance once again before it is
formally approved.

Learning English on Sundays with Moreau


BY AUAN D. JOHNSON
CORRESPONDENT

Cong Pham is hard at work
bucking a disturbing national
trend, and local literacy vol-
unteers are giving him a
hand.
The trend? Observers of
the global economy report
with dismay a shift of scientif-
ic and technical jobs from the
United States to the other side
of the world.
Even more alarming, they
also report that an insuffi-
cient number of students
here are studying to become
our engineers and scientists
of the future.
Pham, 22, arrived in Fort
Myers three-and-a-half years
ago from Vietnam., a teenager
looking for opportunity. Now
he is a brilliant student at
Manatee Community Col-
lege's Venice campus, deter-
mined to make a career for
himself in chemical engineer-
ing and to become a United
States citizen.
Pham spoke no English
when he arrived in Fort
Myers, so he was placed in
high school with some En-
glish language lessons.
He moved to Venice, en-
rolled in high school here and
started being tutored by Meg
Moreau, a volunteer with the
Venice Area Literacy Volun-
teers. He also took English
lessons via computer in
school.
"I have always liked math-
ematics and science," he said,
"and now I want to get a
degree in chemical engineer-
ing, then maybe a master's
degree.
"I'd like to do research,
work on equipment for hos-
pitals. There are so many
things to do."


Proud
In high school Pham took
such subjects as trigonome-
try and calculus, all the while
struggling to handle the
English being spoken by the
teachers. He did well, as evi-
denced by a 3.5 grade-point
average, dragged down from
a perfect 4.0 mainly by
English tests.
This year Pham is sched-
uled to complete his studies
at MCC, "and then I hope to
be able to go to the University
of South Florida, looking for
scholarships and financial
aid."
At MCC Pham has a 3.8
grade average, with English
once again standing in the
way of a perfect score.
Meg Moreau is still tutor-
ing him, "mostly in the use of
idioms and expanding his
vocabulary. I'm very proud of
Cong; he comes over here to
my home for an hour or two
every Sunday. It's about the
only time he is free."
In addition to carrying an
ambitious load of college
courses, Pham is working 31
hours a week as a manicurist
in a nail salon. The shop, Tres
Joli, is on Venice Avenue and
is owned by his mom and
dad, both of whom work
there.
Cong got here as part of a
family migration. They lived
in rural Bien Hoa, near
Saigon, when Cong's mother
and sister came to the United
States on the advice of a
cousin. They settled briefly in
Iowa before coming to
Florida.
Then Cong came with his
father, leaving behind his
occupation of baking build-
ing bricks. They landed first at
Los Angeles International
Airport.

Meg Moreau and Cong Pham have been a literacy team for several years. Cong's grades are the proof of their joint success.


"Everything is so big, even
the people," Pham said of his
first impressions after getting
off the plane. "The cars, the
roads, so big. And the ham-
burger in the McDonald's in
the terminal. I ate one. It was
good."
Pham's mom was a student
of the literacy volunteers. She
has become a U.S. citizen.
Later this month Pham will
compete in Florida's commu-
nity college scholastic Olym-


pics. He has been named to a
four-person team from the
Venice campus that will meet
in Jacksonville April 22 to
compete against community
colleges from throughout the
state in solving mathematical
problems.
Whether or not Team
MCC-Venice wins any me-
dals, the chances look good
that Cong Pham will win
many successes wherever his
career takes him.

A bicyclist passes the two delivery trucks that caused a terrorist scare at Venice City Hall on
Friday. Truck drivers Tomaz Meireles and Fabio Silva (obscured by truck door) are questioned
as officers search the trucks.


noticed the box trucks and
watched Meireles and Silva
get out. One changed his
shirt, and then they went
down Miami Avenue on foot.
Firefighters confirmed the
trucks were unconnected with
city hall air conditioning work,
and then Venice police were
called, according to the city
t manager. One vehicle was
clearly marked as a Penske
rental truck, and the other only
said FDS Trucking with an Or-
lando phone number.
(s The area was immediately
sealed off and all those within
a one-block radius of city hall
asked to leave.


Any sharks?
After searching the trucks,
police were satisfied the men
were not terrorists. McNulty
said he had alerted the Sara-
sota County Sheriff's Terrorist
Task force and called for a
bomb-detecting dog.
"It was a very appropriate
call to evacuate the area," said
Black, who called it an "over-
abundance of caution" well
spent.
There was only one com-
plaint by the city manager: A
handful of city employees lin-
gered in the parking lot
"gawking" instead of standing
behind the barricades.
As for Meireles and Silva,
they complimented VPD offi-


cers and detectives for being
professional and kind.
"They could've thrown us
down on the ground," Silva
jokingly said. "We said we
were sorry. And they apolo-
gized. That was nice."
The pair of truck drivers
then grabbed their towels and
walked down Granada Ave-
nue toward the beach.
As the two walked away
from the reporter, Silva stop-
ped, turned back to the re-
porter and asked with a gen-
uine amount of concern.
'Are there any sharks in the
water?"
Staff writer Tommy
McIntyre contributed to this
report.

Changes are coming
Leadership at VHA is
changing.
Appell has served his two-

April 1, will be replaced by
Sam Prost. Appell has one

a VHA board member.
The seventh board seat,
reserved for a Grove Terrace
resident, has become vacant
upon the resignation of Noel
White.
Board appointments are
the only real power the city
has over VHA, making Mayor
Dean Calamaras' selection an
important one. Carter Can-
ada, president of the Res-

The executive director po-

VHA members will meet
Monday to attempt to whittle
the list down to three candi-
dates.
Canada hopes the change
in leadership at executive
director and on the VHA
board will improve relations.
Perhaps that is what it will
take for VHA to listen to
someone other than paid
consultants out to make
money off of Grove Terrace,
Canada said.
"They're hell-bent on tear-

to disperse the residents,"
Canada said. "And they
haven't slowed down (since
Lopez left). Everything that's
been prepared is going
ahead, full bore."

Affordable housing framework approved by county commissioners


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


Sarasota County commis-
sioners took a step Wednes-
day that will help set the goals
and guiding principles to
maximize the availability of
affordable housing.
The board unanimously
agreed to direct county staff
to develop a draft ordinance
that would set the policies
and strategies for spending
the county's Housing Fund.
This fund will be getting a
substantial boost within the
next few months, since com-
missioners have agreed to use a


large portion of its share of the
North Port delinquent tax-lots
auction money for the fund.
The money will become
available after the last deed is
signed. That will not happen
until several weeks after the
fourth online auction is com-
pleted and the last of the lots
is sold in the next few weeks.
The board is expected to
decide within the next few
months just how much of its
45 percent share of the more
than $60 million will go to
affordable housing needs.
Wendy Thomas, manager
of community housing, said
current and future housing


needs are focused on the next
five years, which call for a
demand of nearly 26,000 new
"affordable" units to meet the
growing demand.
"Much of this is work-
force," Thomas said. "That
need spans from hospitality
to professional workers."
Surprise
Workforce housing includ-
es households that earn be-
tween $47,000 to $77,000 per
year, which is between 80
percent and 100 percent of
the area's median income.
"We want this housing to
be sustainable, affordable in


perpetuity," Thomas said.
The ordinance will have
policies that will encourage
developers to build housing
projects that can be bought
by a wider range of people.
Thomas has been working
with an advisory group to
draft the specific language of
the ordinance. The group has
been meeting weekly for
more than two months and
consists of developers, com-
munity leaders and large
community employers.
Commissioners said they
were surprised to learn that
the county is also going to
need space for an additional


6,500 people with special
needs. This is primarily hous-
ing for the elderly and the
handicapped and people in
need of transitional housing.
"These are estimates about
what we see as future de-
mand," Thomas said.
No surprise
County Administrator Jim
Ley said the estimates do not
surprise him.
With the leading edge of
baby boomers hitting retire-
ment age, special needs
housing is going to be domi-
nated by care for the elderly,
Ley said.


"We are going to look a
whole lot different in the
future," Ley said.
The mix of needs, for work
force and special-needs
housing, will stretch the
county's ability to encourage
new development, officials
said.
Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton said that in the past 10
years or so there has been lit-
tle if any affordable housing
built in the county. But be-
cause of the increased de-
mand for affordable housing,
he said, the market has
changed and there is new
development coming.


LAW IA


differing definitions of child
abuse in civil and criminal
sections of the Florida Stat-
utes.
"Civil statutes define ag-
gravated child abuse, but
criminal code doesn't address
this. As a result, state attor-
neys apparently were con-
fused with the original intent
in regards to excessive corpo-
ral punishment," Detert said.


"In the local (ECC) case,
state attorneys said it (the
alleged abuse) didn't rise to
level of criminal child abuse.
Other attorneys I've spoken
with said it does.
"This clarifies the issue so
Florida's criminal code
matches civil statutes. If you
were to do this (jacking) to
your own child, the Depart-
ment of Children and Family


Services would take your
child away.
"Obviously, under current
statutes cases are being drop-
ped. That's the Legislature's
fault. We weren't very clear,"
Detert said.
Lisa Blaise, a parent of an
ECC student who allegedly
was abused, helped organize
'A Voice For Our Children," a
parent support group that is


following the legislation.
"(We) wholeheartedly
stand behind any initiative or
law that protects the children
and allows no ambiguity
when it comes to the prose-
cution of offenders," Blaise
wrote this week in an e-mail
to members.
On board
Detert didn't seek out co-

public excluded from creation of $150 million deal


iv and county administrators devised a stadium
lian with staggering costs and no public input.


I;V TOB ARDREN AND JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

Sarasota city and county
officials conducted private,
tnaidvertised, one-on-one
meetings with commission-
crs to show them plans for a
new baseball stadium, arena,
recreation facilities, housing
and fairgrounds relocation
before the plans were pub-
licly unveiled in Tallahassee
last week.
The behind-closed-doors
briefings con-
ducted by
City Manager *
Miike McNees
and County ; -
A administrator
Tim Ley allow-
ed local offi-
cials with-
out any pub-
lic input or Ley
,wven public
.exposure to provide a com-
mittee of Florida lawmakers
with copies of the profession-
ally prepared plans before
they were introduced at open
commission meetings in
Sarasota.
Some local commissioners
said they were surprised and
others unhappy when the
unveiling in Tallahassee took
place.
While the decision to keep
the $1,50 million-plus plans
temporarily under wraps at
home in Sarasota may not
have violated the state's open
government law, it arguably
circumvented a Sarasota
County Charter provision
that describes the powers and
duties of administrators.
Out ahead
The charter states that the
first responsibility of an
administrator is to "carry out
directives and policies as
issued by the Board of County
Commissioners in official,


meetings." Neither the city
commission nor the county
commission has met to issue
policy directives about the
sweeping plans.
County Commissioner
Nora Patterson was among
those who received a private
briefing before the commit-
tee meeting.
"The 'administrators got
out ahead of the county com-
mission based on the num-
bers that were presented,"
she said. "We never approved
them as a
body, or indi-
vidually."
U,- According to
Patterson, the
decision to
unveil the
plans in Talla-
hassee rather
that Sarasota
Patterson was a "short
circuit" in the
process.
"The county is not Jim Ley
and Mike McNees," she said.
"This shouldn't have hap-
pened. We were not asked to
represent this as a done deal
to the Legislature."
Heads-up
Likewise, Sarasota Mayor
Mary Anne Servian expressed
surprise the plans were
revealed in Tallahassee before
Sarasota.
"I didn't know they were
going to unveil the 'what if'
scenarios. I thought they were
up there to introduce the new
team owner who'd made a
commitment to Sarasota.
"Why they felt the need to
unveil all the rest in Talla-
hassee, I don't know," Servian
added, saying she'd only
recently been briefed by Ley
and McNees in a meeting.
"Both staffs (city and county)
have been working on this
unbeknownst to me."
Several commissioners


described the closed meet-
ings conducted by city and
county officials to show them
plans prepared by Gladding-
Jackson, an Orlando planning
consultant that previously
helped devise the county's
Sarasota 2050 growth plan.
"The meetings were con-
ducted in a room at the
County Administration Cen-
ter," said Jon Thaxton. "Mine
lasted about 20 minutes. It's
my under-
standing that i t
all the com-
missioners .
received a
similar brief- .
ing. I just lis- I.
tened and
didn't say very
much."
According Thaxton
to Thaxton,
there were maps and aerial
photographs that depicted a
variety of development op-
tions.
"As I understood it, none of
them were actually being pro-
posed," he said, "they were
just open for consideration.
The meetings were to give us
a heads-up."
Conceptual
Those plans were handed
over last week to the Florida
House of Representatives
Tourism Committee chaired
by State Rep. Nancy Detert, R-
Venice, which discussed $15
million state grants for com-
munities to either refurbish
or build new Grapefruit
League spring training base-
ball facilities.
Among those Sarasota offi-
cials in Tallahassee for the
committee's deliberations
were City Commissioner Lou
Ann Palmer, County Com-
missioner Paul Mercier, Dep-
uty City Manager Peter
Schneider, County Lobbyist
Marsha Hosack, Ed Smith
Stadium Manager Pat Cal-
hoon and County Tourism
Director Virginia Haley.
Mercier said he was "a little


surprised" to see the $150
million figure in newspaper
reports that followed the leg-
islative committee meeting.
"The plans were not as
specific as they were concep-
tual," he said. "We've been
looking at conceptual stuff for
a year. It all started with mon-
ey for the Cincinnati Reds."
Some state lawmakers and
local officials want to upgrade
spring training facilities so
Major League
Baseball
teams that
train in Flor-
ida won't
move to Ari-
zona.
"I flew to
Cincinnati on
my own dime
Mercier last year,"
Mercier said.
"This is part of a big picture.
We all looked at the plans. I
was the last one they
(McNees and Ley) talked
with."
Frustration
County Commissioner
David Mills said public dis-
cussion about the plans at the
local level was
"jump start-
ed" when
they were -
presented to
the legislative (
committee.
"There's
just a great,
deal of frus-
tration on the Mills
part of a lot of
people who feel something
has to be done," he said.
Mills is concerned, howev-
er, that if the county fair is
moved to a rural location, it
could become a marginal
event.
"That's what happened in
Collier County," he said,
"when people on Marco Is-
land couldn't find it, and
those that did found a pole
barn with no sides. What we
do must result in a fair that is


equal to, or better, than we
what we have now."
City Commissioner Lou
Ann Palmer, who participated
in the presentation in Talla-
hassee, said, "I don't remem-
ber if we mentioned the fair-
grounds." She pointed out
Sarasota is one of five cities
specified in a new bill also
including Tampa, Fort Lau-
derdale, Winter Haven and
Bradenton.
"Paul (Mercier) initiated
the idea of going further (in-
cluding recreation and af-
fordable housing) because of
a lack of support for the Reds
alone," Palmer explained.
"We saw no reason to go pub-
lic because we didn't know
where we were going yet."
Likewise, City Commis-
sioner Ken Shelin said he was
briefed.
"I was told it was a concept
and there were at least two
plans on the table and there
were lots of hurdles to jump
through. That's all I know."
'A lot of gall'
In addition to briefing city
and county commissioners,
McNees and Ley also shared
their plans with Fair Board
President Rory Martin.
"What I saw were concep-
tual plans for everything but
the fairgrounds," he said. "My
board has asked for a process
that is transparent, financially
feasible and sustainable.
None of these things have
been done."
According to Martin, he
was asked not to share the
briefing information with his
board members.
"It took a lot of gall to do
that," he said, "then go to
Tallahassee and make news.
My board is some kind of
upset. The fairgrounds is a
player in all of this, and the
plans I saw look like they
would cost closer to $250 mil-
lion."
Servian said she asked Ley
whether the fair board had
been brought into discus-


sions about the plans, and the
mayor said Ley replied, "In
my discussions ... ," leaving
the impression the fair board
was informed.
When asked last week
about the apparent absence
of a policy directive from the
county commission, Ley said,
"That's coming up March 24.
We've received direction from
the board both individually
and collectively. That's one of
the reasons we're meeting, to
create a platform."
For his part, McNees said
the entire project is "all timing.
We started in December, got
the drawings in January and
then began having the one-on-
ones with commissioners to
find out if they'd say, 'You're out
of your minds.'"
The city and county com-
missions will meet together
March 24 to discuss the newly
revealed plans.

Scrub jay lots get $3,000 discount


BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR

Fisher Auction Company
reduced the starting price for
43 "scrub jay lots" by $3,000
each for the fourth online
auction of abandoned North
Port properties.
In all, 223 lots will be sold
in the upcoming fourth on-
line auction, including 43 on
which the protected birds
were found by the U.S. Fish &
Wildlife Service.


. These tax lots are being
auctioned through a partner-
ship between the city of
North Port and Sarasota
County. So far, more than $60
million has been generated
through the online auctions.
Florida scrub jays have
been designated by the U.S.
Fish & Wildlife Service as
"threatened" under the feder-
al Endangered Species Act.
Properties where scrub jays
are found are subject to con-
sultation with USFWS before


any building will be allowed,
and in some cases the owner
may be required to donate
other land for the birds in
order to build on the lot in
question.
Before the first online auc-
tion session was held in
January, Fisher, the county
and city agreed to hold back
several lots identified as po-
tential scrub jay habitat in a
county survey. They were
referred to as "red lots" be-
cause they were indicated


with red shading on a county
map. The county's designa-
tion, however, doesn't have
regulatory impact and doesn't
mean consultation is re-
quired.
When the land auction
began, USFWS hadn't issued
its report indicating which, if
any, of the auction lots had
scrub jays.
Just before the conclusion
of the first session, though,
Sarasota County was told ver-
bally that several lots -


including four that already
had bids were found to
have scrub jays.
Fisher allowed the session
to run to completion. After
the auction closed, the suc-
cessful bidders were told their
new lots had scrub jays. They
were given the option of
abandoning their winning
bids, but both parties decided
to wait.
In addition to the four lots
in session one, there were six
lots from later sessions that
were also found to have scrub
jays. They were removed from
the online auction pending
further discussions with
USFWS.
After the conclusion of the
three online auctions, Fisher
expected to hold a live auc-
tion at the North Port Per-
forming Arts Center to sell
whatever lots remained un-
sold. However, only five lots
were not sold, so the live auc-
tion was later canceled.
Subsequently, the county,
the city and Fisher decided to
offer the scrub jay lots, along
with the "red lots" that were
held back from the earlier
online sessions. Hence, a
fourth online auction has
been slated for March 23 to
28.
Details about the lots in
the fourth online session,
including locations and start-
ing bid prices, became avail-
able on the Web site on


Wednesday. In the fourth ses-
sion, 223 lots will be sold
including 43 designated by
USFWS as scrub jay lots
requiring consultation, and
another 180 lots that do not
require consultation now.
The Web site indicates the
starting price of the designat-
ed scrub jay lots was reduced
by $3,000. Starting bids will
range from a low of $10,000
(for lots that are both flood-
and scrub jay-designated) to
a high of $33,000.

LAST CHANCE
There are 223 North Port tax
delinquent lots to be sold in
the final online auction March
23-28 Information about the
North Port lot auctions is avail-
able at fisherauction.com, or
at the city's Web site at
ciryofnorthport.com.

Florida preparing for pandemic possibility


he world is carefully watching and the
media is reporting the slow spread of the
H5N1 virus, better known as the bird flu.
Bird flu has traveled through Asia, Europe,
Africa and the Middle East, and most recent-
ly was confirmed in swans in Poland.
Feared by world health officials, bird flu is
believed by many to have the potential to
turn into a worldwide pandemic.
The major fear is the bird flu virus could
mix with a human influenza and be able to
jump from human to human, sparking a
global flu pandemic.
It is reported that 94 people have died
from the bird flu since 2003, primarily people
that came in direct contact with birds that
had the virus.
It's good to know that our health officials
at the state level have been preparing for the


possibility of a pandemic for a number of
years. The recent Florida Prepares Pandemic
Flu Summit held in Tallahassee was just the
latest meeting designed to share information
and gain knowledge regarding this very
important subject.
Florida Department of Health Secretary
M. Rony Francois led a panel of speakers
including Gov. Jeb Bush, U.S. Health and
Human Services Secretary Michael Leavitt
and Centers for Disease Control Prevention
Director Julie Gerberding. Gerberding
warned that the country is dangerously
underprepared to handle this type of medical
crisis.
We applaud the announcement by
Francois of a $4.6 million grant for Florida
planning and preparation. In view of the
sobering statistics voiced by Gerberding at


the conference, the fact that Florida is
preparing is reassuring.
Gerberding said as many as 90 million
Americans nationwide could become sick by
the flu, with 45 million hospitalized and per-
haps as many as 2 million deaths resulting.
Of course, officials really have no way of
accurately predicting the potential impact.
Not only is bird flu a major health con-
cern, but it will also affect the country's econ-
omy as well, with as many as 30 to 50 percent
of the work force off the job should a pan-
demic break out.
Officials at the state and local levels are
staying aware of bird flu's potential threat by
attending conferences such as the recent
meeting in Tallahassee and gaining addition-
al valuable information.
At the federal level, Leavitt recently


announced the authorization to create a sec-
ond vaccine for a strain of avian influenza
that was found in Indonesia. The first vaccine
was developed to protect against a strain dis-
covered in Vietnam in 2004.
HHS has 8 million doses of the Vietnam
version of the vaccine stored. The federal
government also has more than 5 million
doses of the anti-viral drugs Tamiflu and
Relenza stockpiled.
The sobering fact that the virus has now
been found in cats in Europe further creates
the urgency for additional vaccines to be
developed.
As stated by Leavitt at an Atlanta immu-
nization conference, "In order to be pre-
pared, we need to continue to develop new
vaccines."
We couldn't agree with him more.

District appreciates vote of confidence


Editor:
On behalf of the school board, we would like to thank the
citizens of Sarasota County for your vote of confidence and
support of the Sarasota County Public Schools. The passage of
the referendum will allow the school district to move forward
toward significant progress.
We pledge to work diligently to continue to earn your trust
and support in the next four years, by being frugal with the
funds and by meeting the commitment to our students.
This referendum is about paying teachers competitive
salaries so they will want to move and stay in Sarasota County.
It is about moving all students up to a higher level through
more rigorous courses, closing the learning gap between high
and low achieving students and infusing technology and
career/technical education into the curriculum.
It is about offering our students art and music programs
with the highest standards. And it is about ensuring our stu-
dents have the knowledge and skills to be successful in jobs in
the rapidly changing global marketplace.
The school board would like to particularly thank Citizens
for Better Schools, the Sarasota Classified/Teachers
Association and all the volunteers who generously and relent-
lessly contributed their time and money.
Representatives from CBS spoke to hundreds of organiza-
tions and tackled tough questions from concerned citizens.
SC/TA and employees of the district gave up evenings and
weekends working diligently for the referendum. *
Citizens, parents and employees attended community
forums and provided the district with astute comments and
suggestions. Volunteers, representing many constituents in the
community, made signs and banners, spoke with friends in
their neighborhood and citizens at the farmers markets, and
steadfastly made bright green T-shirts a staple in their
wardrobe.
The district could not have accomplished the triumphant
passage of the referendum without their tireless efforts.
The school board is immeasurably grateful and hopes you
will continue to collaborate with us as we proceed down the
path toward educational excellence in our schools.

Loss of jobs
isn't progress
Editor:
Bush's three-day visit to
India last week resulted in a
landmark agreement, sharing
nuclear reactors, fuel and
expertise. Congress must still
approve the agreement, an
uncertain step.
In return, India accepts
international safeguards, a
big plus for India, but more
job losses for America.
Many white-collar jobs will
be outsourced to India. We
lost 29,000 white-collar jobs
to India in the past two years.
Many more will go when the
agreement is ratified.
Bush says its painful for
our people to lose these jobs.
How should the government
react? Throw up protection-
ism walls? No, he says the
people need more education
for future jobs. That's a big
joke. It costs big money and
time for the higher education,
and won't help the current
layoffs.
When a person's job is
gone, it's not only painful, it's
devastating. The wages and
benefits are lost. They can't
find work in their field
because it's now overseas, so
they apply for unemploy-
ment benefits, and later find
some lower-paying job, just to
survive.
What are these better jobs
that require more education?
School teachers and what? It
takes money and years to get
a degree.


Is this progress? Years ago
we lost the manufacturing
jobs with good pay and bene-
fits to low-labor-rate coun-
tries, then the textile industry
followed suit. Now it's the
white-collar jobs.
Our country is headed for
two classes the rich and
the poor. The middle class
will soon be nonexistent.
We're regressing. The politi-
cians couldn't care less.

Shut off the
money spigot
Editor:
I believe we as voters are
not electing senators and rep-
resentatives but instead Re-
publicans and Democrats.
Whatever the issue is to be
voted upon will only be done
so along party lines, if it in-
creases the chances of being
re-elected!
I also think there should be
a law requiring our elected
officials to attend funeral ser-
vices for military personnel
killed in combat. Maybe after
facing family members they
might be a little more inter-
ested in ending the current
debacle and avoiding future
ones.
The conflict in Iraq will not
end until Congress pulls the
money plug; the president
announces our intention of
no bases and withdrawal of
forces; and we get serious
about rebuilding their infra-
structure using Iraqi compa-
nies and personnel and just
do it.

Future looks
bright for schools
Editor:
On Tuesday, March 14, the
voters of Sarasota County
showed support of our chil-
dren and Sarasota County
schools with the overwhelm-
ing vote of 61 percent in favor
of continuing the 1-mill prop-
erty tax for education. Thank
you!
Citizens for Better Schools
worked hard on this cam-
paign. A team of dedicated
individuals within our com-
munity gave tirelessly of their
time in making this referen-
dum a success.
Many citizens donated
necessary funds to make our
position understood through-
out the county: This issue is
only about our children and
giving them the best educa-
tional opportunities possible.
Hundreds of volunteers
worked tirelessly to get out
the vote: waving signs on
street corners, providing al-
most 1,000 endorsements,
speaking at more than 150
clubs and organizations and
providing commercial sign
locations from owners at 75
sites.


We are very grateful to all
those who worked on this
campaign from North Port,
Venice, Englewood, Sarasota
and the keys.
The spirit of teamwork,
leadership and collaboration
will remain in our memories
for years to come.
The next four years look
bright for educating our
young students in a way that
allows each of them to pursue
their dreams and become
productive and successful
adults with 21st century skills
and careers.
We further pledge to con-
tinue to communicate with
Sarasota County citizens as
these exciting changes take
place.
Thank you for your sup-
port and confidence in our

Tax cuts are the
last thing we need
Editor:
If you are a senior citizen,
as I am, you remember World
War II. I was just a schoolgirl
at the time, but I remember
saving aluminum foil into a
great big ball, planting a vic-
tory garden in Prospect Park,
saving dimes so I could buy
savingss Bond stamps, and
ration books for everything
from groceries to shoes. We
were all helping our troops.
Today, no one is asked to
sacrifice except our soldiers
and their families. Our presi-
dent has told us time and
again that we must honor our
fallen soldiers by sending
more young men and women


to Iraq and Afghanistan to
die.
And if we don't agree with
this premise, then we are
"against the troops." This
logic completely escapes me.
The high cost of this war is
mind boggling and to help
pay for it, the president pro-
poses a permanent tax cut.
To meet his promise of cut-
ting the deficit in half, the
White House budget will
delay, or deny at least tens of
thousands of veterans with
noncritical medical issues
with the necessary care they
need.
This is how Bush honors
our veterans!
Hey, Mr. President, here's a
novel thought: Why not ask
the very rich to pay their fair
share of taxes?

We need oversight
on the wiretaps
Editor:
I simply cannot believe
that the Senate Intelligence
Committee has refused to
open an investigation into the
secret, warrantless spying
authorized by President
Bush.
Surely someone on the
committee can remember
the gross abuses of the past.
Letting this practice continue
is an invitation for more
abuses to occur.
We cannot trust those in
power, especially those in this
administration, to do the
right thing when there is no
oversight.

chase of Snook Haven and

ing it the same.

Sunday and banjos on Thurs-
days.
They likely will make some

For those who want a
drink, unless it is beer or wine
you won't be able to get it
there. The code is BYOB.

The other great news com-
ing out of the county is it has
found funds to be able to fin-
ish the Venetian Waterway
Park and is in the process of
ordering the work.
It is sort of sad that they
have decided not to move for-
ward on putting anything else
into the train depot until the
cement plants have moved. It
would seem a temporary
concession stand would be
nice, maybe even bike rentals.
Large segments of the rail-

dirt bikes could handle it also.

Fire danger lingers in area as dry spell continues


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

The risk of devastating
brush fires remains high
throughout Southwest Flor-
ida, even in areas that have
been spared so far.
With a recent rash of brush
fires in southern Charlotte
County, fire officials across
the region are sitting up and
taking notice while secretly
praying for rain that seems to
be avoiding the area.
Sarasota County Fire De-
partment officials provided
county commissioners Tues-
day with a good news/bad
news update about the 2006
wildfire season.
The good news is that
through Tuesday, there had
been two brush fires in the
county this year and they
burned a total of 6 acres, said
Chuck Johnston, a fire mitiga-
tion specialist.

increase in our fire activity as

the Earth, creating sparks and
possible fires.
Johnston said fires start-
ing before thunderstorms
arrive are generally started
by people as arson or by
accident.
Charlotte County has had
four major fires since March
7, burning nearly 500 acres,
damaging two homes, four
boats and two vehicles.
All of the major fires in
Charlotte County have been
south of the Peace River. On
Monday, fires burned 25 acres
on Bermont Road and 125
acres off Zemel Road. A fire
burned 45 acres off Wash-
ington Loop Road on Wed-
nesday.
To prevent major fires from
breaking out, Sarasota
,County has an extensive pre-
i ,hvli v,: .:": v hoqfw- '"


scribed burn program, said
Joe Padgett, the county bum
supervisor.
Much of that program fo-
cuses on the Carlton Reserve,
the site of an April 2001 fire
that started as a controlled
burn and went out of control
to burn about 6,000 acres and
destroy one home in North
Port Estates.


"Much of our efforts in
recent years have been on
areas that had not been
burned," Padgett said.
There is also an effort to
create a bum line along the
southern border of the re-
serve.
"It is to keep any future fire
from leaving the reserve and
to keep fire out," he said.

Ley, Norris are doers, dreamers, drivers
Two of the nation's top "Doers, Dreamers and Drivers" are in Sarasota County,
according to an article in Government Technology magazine's March issue.

tendent Dr. Gary Ni ,,, n i iiiI i. iiu niii'i "Top 25 Doers, Dreamers and

information technology functions of the two organizations.
Since 2002 Government Technology's March issue has honored decision-
makers for their work in the previous year "individuals who are redefining
and advancing technology's role in government and society," according to the
magazine. This year's story about the Top 25 list refers to Ley and Norris as "the
duo that penned a new chapter in the book of government consolidation."
Ley is quoted about Norris' vision for the schools, which includes classrooms that
use computers and audio-visual technology to create interactive learning
experiences for students. As highlights of his partnership with Norris, Ley cites
,, I I h ,, ,, I I i,.I u l i I h ,,ll y ,l ,hlr I I l. r I,.t I I I ,IhIII I ,I i lil I I Ih f

This marks the second year in a row that Sarasota County government
officials have been named as "Doers, Dreamers and Drivers" on the list. Last

Indian baseball team drops 3rd straight


STAFF REPORT


The Venice High baseball

a punchless 8-0 loss to visit-
ing Charlotte High Friday
night.
It was the third straight loss
for Venice (4-7).
Chad Burns pitched a
complete game, allowing just
two hits and striking out 11.
He improved his record to 2-


"Chad did a great job
throwing strikes early in the
count," said Charlotte coach
Mike Metcalf. "He was able to
throw his pitches when he
wanted to throw them."
Meanwhile, Charlotte put
together a four-run first off
Indian starter Ryan Ander-
son. Three of them were
earned. Jason Kaufman re-
lieved and gave the Indians


five strong innings. He allow-
ed four hits and fanned six.
The Tarpons broke it open
in the sixth inning with
another, four spot. None of
those runs was earned, as
Venice committed three er-
rors in the frame.
Jeremie Cook pitched a
scoreless seventh for Venice.
Charlotte had four doubles
in the game, plus a triple by
Mike Hudzina.


Venice finished with a
whopping six errors.

Why are they homeless?

Editor's Note: In two recent articles, the Venice Gondolier Sun reported the story of a homeless married couple living in Venice ("Not Quite a
Venetian Paradise," Feb. 26, 2006) and the man's mother's response ("A Mother's Response," March 12, 2006). Today we examine the causes
of homelessness and get the opinions of two local agency directors who deal with the homeless.


STORY AND PHOTOS BY JEFF TAVARES
PHOTO EDITOR

Homeless?
No problem, right? Get a
job. Rent an apartment.
The facts and local agency
leaders say it may not be that
easy.
"The current estimate is
that there are 83,391 persons
homeless in Florida on any
given day." This is according
to the state of Florida's Office
of Homelessness report,
'Annual Report on Homeless
Conditions in Florida 2005."
The report, which is
required by state law, used
data collected by 29 local
homeless coalitions from
across the state.
The report states "the pri-
mary causes of homelessness
are poverty and shortage of
housing stock affordable to
those with limited incomes."
Other factors cited by the
report that contribute to why
people are homeless include:
unemployment, family
breakups, domestic violence,
physical and mental disabili-
ties and health problems with
their related costs.
A National Coalition for
the Homeless (NCH) report
issued in June 2005, "Why are
People Homeless," blames
poverty, a decline in public
assistance and the lack of
affordable housing.
The NCH report mentions
the income of low-wage
workers as an important rea-
son for homelessness, citing
an Economic Policy Institute
2005 report: "To compound
the problem, the real value of
the minimum wage in 2004
was 26 percent less than in
1979."
The. Sarasota Consortium,
Five Year Strategic Plan is a
cooperative effort of the City
of Sarasota and Sarasota
County. The April 2005 plan,
using 2000 "Comprehensive
Affordability Strategy" studies
conducted by the Depart-
ment of Housing and Urban
Development, states, "about 8
percent of households in
Sarasota County are in the
extremely low-income brack-
ets, while 9.9 percent are con-
sidered low income." This,
again according to the report,
is 24,817 people in Sarasota
County.
"Extremely low income"
refers to people earning 30
percent of the median
income. "Low income" is de-
fined as those earning 50 per-
cent of the median income.
The median income for
Sarasota County in 2000 was
S$41,957.
Although the data and
reports all mention poverty,
lack of affordable housing
and income as reasons for
homelessness, some, includ-


ing the NCH report, list the
following causes for home-
lessness:
Domestic violence -The
report references a
2004 U.S. Con-
ference of Mayors "An
report study stated
"44 percent of the are
cities surveyed ...
identified domestic hoL
violence as a prima-
ry cause of home- tha
lessness."
Mental illness COL
- From the same
report, the NCH
notes, "Approxi-
mately 23% of the single adult
homeless population suffers
from some form of severe and
persistent mental illness."
Addiction The NCH
believes, "The relationship
between addiction and
homelessness is complex and
controversial. While
rates of alcohol and !
drug abuse are dispro-
portionately high
among the homeless
population, the ,
increase in homeless-
ness over the past two PIP-.
decades cannot be
explained by addiction
alone. Many people
who are addicted to

alcohol and drugs
never become home-
less, but people who .:
are poor and addicted
are clearly at increased
risk of homelessness."
The Sarasota
County Coalition for
the Homeless estimat-
ed in a 1999 survey -
there were 1,296 '.'
homeless people ,,
countywide.
The Sarasota Con-i
sortium, Five Year Stra-
tegic Plan lays out its
strategies to deal with
homeownership, I
rentals and homeless- :
ness.
In the area of home-
ownership, the strate- _
gy is to assist with what :
the report describes as -
"low- and moderate-
income households," the city
of Sarasota and Sarasota
County plan to assist 550
households with down pay-
ments; provide homebuyer's

The report has two strate-

for a three-bedroom.
Joyce Scott
Our Mother's House, locat-
ed in Venice since 1991, is a
facility with 10 one-bedroom
apartments for homeless, sin-
gle mothers with preschool
children. The women are
referred from various sources,
including churches and other
shelters. They may live at the
facility for up to two years.
Our Mother's House, a pro-
gram of Catholic Charities,
also receives funding from
federal, state and city grants.
During the two-year peri-
od the women are living at


asked what she
sees as the main
reason for homelessness in
Sarasota County: "The cost of
living."
She doesn't hesitate to add,
'An entry-level salary ... what
most people who are homeless
might qualify for: 8,9, 10 bucks
an hour, after taxes 6 or 7 bucks
an hour. How does
thatbegin to pay for
the cost of living in
Sarasota County?" Her
answer: "It doesn't."
Scott does make the
point .that a couple
both earning those
wages, in her words,
"maybe you can
make it."
But her thoughts
turn to the women at
Our Mother's House
whom she serves
when she adds that a
single mom with a
Child cannot make it
on those wages.
Scott believes there
are many in the
county in the at-risk
groups for homeless-
ness: "I couldn't give
you a number. I ima-
gine there's a lot of
them."
Capt. Chris Farrell
"I grew up in the
Salvation Army," said
Capt. Farrell, corps
officer of the Venice

Salvation Army. Far--
rell's parents were
Salvation Army offi-
cers.
Farrell has been an officer
for three and one half years.
He has served in Kentucky,
Tennessee, Georgia and most
recently in Florida.


Capt. Chris Farrell, corps offi-
cer, Salvation Army, Venice


The local Salvation Army
aids homeless people and
low-income earners through
a range of services. A food
pantry is available for those in
need. The center on Albee
Farm Road also provides
rental payment assistance,
vouchers for gasoline and bus
rides, and will refer the home-
less to its facility in Sarasota,
where temporary transitional
housing is available.
Farrell has been the corps
officer of the Venice facility
for just a month; however, he
has worked with homeless
and low-income individuals
and families during his years
in the Salvation Army.
"The reasons for home-
lessness are as wide ranging
as the ocean sometimes,"
Farrell said.
Farrell continues, "Let's be
honest, there are people out
there who are just taking
advantage of the system, and
they know there are agencies
like ours and other ones that
will provide them what they
need for that moment, that
time, and then they'll bounce
to the other one. We know
they're out there. But it's not
our job to judge people, it's
our job to do what we can,"
adding that he and others
always counsel individuals to
try to. help them move for-
ward in their lives in a posi-
tive way.
Farrell also discusses the
ecotiomics of Sarasota
County, which factor into the
homeless situation: "This is
not a cheap place to live.
Facts are facts. If the only job
you can get is that minimum
wage type of job, it's going to
be difficult in a place like
Venice."
Farrell's most recent as-
signment was in Citrus
County, where, he states, "the
cost of living is much lower
and people can better afford
to work those kind of jobs and
maintain some kind of roof
over their heads. That would
be difficult here."
He does seem happy with
his new assignment to Venice,
"This is a .great, wonderful
city, wonderful corps and
wonderful people to work
with."
Farrell seems optimistic,
concluding, "But we have to
say to ourselves, you know
what, that's a human being
and, OK, maybe they don't
want any part of it [help] now,
but who knows, if something
we say or do, or some agency
we can point them to that
gives them some other kind
of help, maybe they can turn
it around, that's why we do
it."

this is what I thought.
Astory Iheard about the 10
most intelligent beings after
man made me think of Con-


gress. Now how did I make
that connection? I dunno!
Just think of all the advan-
tages of replacing Congress
with intelligent animals. I
started to count down the
animals on the list to see
which would make the best
representatives. First on the
list, of course, are chimpan-
zees, but since there is
already too much monkeying
around in Congress they
wouldn't do. Next on the list
are dolphins, but they are so
nice they would probably just
be fish out of water. So I set-
tled on pigs, squirrels and
crows.
To start with, having three


types of animals would allow
us to have a three-party sys-
tem instead of two. In addi-
tion to the Party of the Pigs
and the Nutty Party, we'd have
the Crow-caw-cus. And just
think of the money we would
save. The animals might need
a tiny salary since pigs need
housing and food, but they
wouldn't need any benefits
like health care, vacations
and so forth.
Now the pigs ... could they
ever clean up the garbage in
Washington. For that matter,
they would help clean up the
environment, too. They could
be counted on to root out the
answers to many a tough


problem and maybe even
some of that corruption. And
if need be, to get a bill passed
in Congress, they could sure
push their weight around.
Of course, they would prob-
ably be prone to muck-rak-
ing and mud-slinging, but
after all that is, well,
human....
As for squirrels, well they
would get rid of the nuts,
that's for sure. And think of all
the money they would find
and store away for hurri-
canes, floods, tornadoes and
wars. Also you never saw a
squirrel sit around and argue.
He goes to work fast and gets
things done. Maybe they


would even balance the bud-
get. They could cover a lot of
ground scampering all
over the country and finding
out what needed to be done.
And they'd understand the
need to conserve the balance
of nature.
And now the crows. They
could take us to new heights,
never before envisioned.
They could pick away at the
dead wood. And I'd bet they
would be very observant.
After all for years they have
been sitting on fence posts,
trying to tell us all that was
wrong, but we just wouldn't
listen. In fact the squirrels
and the pigs would probably


elect a crow as Speaker of the
House. Can't you just see a
crow perched on top of the
dome of the Capitol Building,
informing us all of what was
going on around Washing-
ton? Maybe we wouldn't need
so many reporters crowing
about what's right and wrong.
Hallelujah!
And so, I had lots of fun
last Sunday, just a thinking .

Animal adoption is a life-saving option


3B
SUNDAY
MARCH 19,2006


Keke


BY DOUG WORGUL
GUEST WRITER


Owning a pet is a great joy
and a huge responsibility.
Adopting a pet can be an
additional joy, because it pro-
vides a second chance for a
happy life for a deserving ani-
mal. Adoption is a big step,
however, and ought not be
taken lightly.
'Adopting an animal is a
life-altering decision for you
and a life-saving one for your
pet," says Robin B. Rowland,
director of development at
the Humane Society of
Greater Kansas City (Mo.).
"You will not only be enter-


training an extra dinner guest
every night, but you'll be tak-
ing full responsibility for this
new animal. Examining your
lifestyle and household is crit-
ical to making a good adop-
tion match."
Rowland shares these tips
and insights for those con-
templating adopting a pet
from an animal shelter:
If you travel a lot and
work long hours away from
home, it's probably not the
right time for you to adopt. If
your schedule keeps you
busy, adopting an adult cat
might be the best option for
you.
If your schedule allows


you freedom and flexibility,
you could very well adopt a
puppy. If you're planning a
major lifestyle change -
marriage, moving or a new
baby hold off on adopting
until things settle down in
your life. Marriage, moving
and new babies are the pri-
mary reasons pets are relin-
quished to the Humane
Society and other shelters.
Don't shy away from con-
sidering adoption of a pet
from a shelter because you
have a preference for a specif-
ic breed. About 25 percent to
30 percent of shelter popula-
tions are purebreds. If you're
looking for a specific breed,


contact or visit your local
Humane Society, animal
shelter or breed rescue
group.
Before adopting, you may
be screened. Many Humane
Societies and rescue groups
conduct thorough interviews
before allowing you to adopt
an animal in their care.
There are many benefits
to adopting an adult animal
- potty training may
already have been done, the
chewing phase may be past,
and when adopting from
some agencies spay/neuter
surgery, shots and micro-
chipping are included in the
adoption fee.

March is Save Your Vision Month


Did you know?
The term "20/20 vision"
does not translate to perfect
vision. Rather, the term was
coined by eye doctors and
refers to what a normal per-
son should be able to see
from 20 feet away.
According to the online
medical resource WebMd
(webmd.com) people with
20/40 vision, then, can see at
20 feet away what a normal
person can see from 40 feet


away. It is also possible to
have vision that is better than
the norm. People with 20/10
vision, for example, can see
from 20 feet away what a nor-
mal person can see from 10
feet away.
On the opposite end of the
spectrum, the cutoff for legal
blindness in the United States
is 20/200 vision, meaning you
can see at 20 feet away what a
normal can see from 200 feet
away.


Sensible snacking with mini-meals


STAFF REPORT


Eating several small meals
throughout the day is the lat-
est trend in managing a
healthy lifestyle. From nutri-
tionists to fitness magazines,
many are touting this new
"mini-meal" philosophy.
While most advocates of
sensible snacking promote its
weight loss benefits, there are
other reasons why snacking is
encouraged, including in-
creased energy and nutrients.
Healthy snacking not only
maintains the body's insulin
levels, providing a steady
release of energy throughout
the day, it also enriches the
body with protein, vitamins,
minerals, and other nutrients
occasionally missed during
traditional meals.


The amount of snacking
and type of snack foods con-
sumed vary depending upon
a person's age and lifestyle.
Adults, for example, should
snack in limited amounts
because they require less en-
ergy to fuel the body. Children
and teenagers, on the other
hand, are still growing and
require more calories. They
should snack regularly to
keep their energy up through-
out the day. Choosing the
right snacks is just as impor-
tant as planning a healthy
meal. Following are some tips
for getting the most out of
sensible snacking:
Drink your juice. Remem-
ber that eight fluid ounces of
fruit juice counts as one cup
of your daily fruit intake. Just

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. I wear two, powerful
hearing aids everyday but
still miss large parts of
conversations. Why don't my
hearing aids help me to
understand it all?
A. Most people who need help
hearing do not actively seek
help until 10 years after their
first symptoms appear! A vast
number of people know they
have a hearing loss but state
that they "aren't bad enough
yet" to invest in hearing aids.
The problem with this scenario
is that by the time they do feel
hearing aids are necessary, a
great portion of their hearing is
gone. Hearing aids cannot
restore hearing that is no longer
there. Hearing aids are just
that, aids, and can only
enhance hearing which is
diminished, but still there. An
audiologist can perform the
examinations necessary to
determine how much of your
residual hearing is still audible.
This is important because if a
hearing aid is applying
amplification to a portion of
your hearing which is very
damaged, it may be adding
distortion to your already
damaged hearing system. Only
an audiologist is qualified to
evaluate the extent of damage
your hearing system has
incurred. Call the Audiologists
at Woodmere Hearing &
Balance Centers, Inc. at 492-
4327 to schedule an
examination today.

Planning a college nest



egg for the grandkids


Dear Savvy Senior,
My wife and I have been
thinking about starting a 529
college savings plan to help
fund our grandkid's college
education, but have lots of
questions on how they work
and how to choose a plan. Can
you educate us? Looking to
Learn
Dear Looking,
A 529 plan is a great way
for families to save for college
- but not all plans are creat-
ed equal. Here's what you
should know.
529 Plans
A 529 plan is a state-spon-
sored college savings plan
(available in every state and
die District of Columbia) that
helps families save for future
college costs tax-free. As
long as you use the money
for higher education, you pay
no tax on your investment
gains, and in many states you
can even deduct part or all of
your contribution on your
state tax return. Here are
some details on how'they
work:
Contributions: Anyone
(grandparents, parents, fami-
ly friends and kids them-
selves) can contribute to a
529 plan and most plans
allow you to keep adding to
an account until it's worth
$200,000 or more.
Border free: You don't
have to invest in your own
state's 529 plan and you don't
have to attend a college or
university in the state you

"O


purchase a plan in.
College expenses: The
money can be used for
tuition, fees, room and
board, books, supplies and
equipment at any college in
the United States or abroad
that meets federal guidelines.
Penalty: If your grand-
child decides not to go to col-
lege, or doesn't use the full
amount in the account, you
can roll the funds over to
someone else. But, if you take
money out for noneduca-
tional purposes, you'll pay
ordinary income tax plus a 10
percent penalty on the earn-
ings.
Buying options: You can
save money by purchasing
your 529 plan directly from
the state, but if you need
some extra help, you can go
through a financial planner;
however, you'll pay a com-
mission fee.
Expiration: The federal
tax break on 529 withdrawals
is set to expire by the end of
2010 unless Congress moves
to make it permanent -
which they probably will
sometime this year.
Savvy facts
The national average cost
of attending a private college
(including tuition, fees,
books, room and board) is
$29,026 per year, and $12,127
per year at a four-year public
university.
Choosing a plan
Not all 529 plans are alike.
q There fre more than 80 plans
- some with complicated
expensive fees or mediocre
investment options so
comparison shopping is very
important.
The easiest way to do that
is online at savingforcollege
.com, a comprehensive site
that list fees, investment
managers, investment limits
and state tax breaks for every
plan. Here are a few extra tips
to consider:
Look at home: The first
place to look for a 529 plan is
in your home state, because
many states offer residents a
tax deduction for 529 contri-
butions. But if that plan
charges high fees (as many

do), you should consider
other states that offer low
cost and solid investment
plans such as Utah, Nevada,
Virginia, Michigan, New York
and Alaska.
Compare costs: High fees
can more than offset state tax
deductions and eat up your
investment returns, so care-
fully compare the different
fees (enrollment fees, annual
maintenance fees, mutual
fund fees). Some states offer
two 529 plans one sold
directly to consumers and
the other sold by brokers.
Broker-sold plans are always
more expensive.
Investment options:
Most 529 plans offer a choice
of conventional mutual
funds and age-based funds in
which your investment mix
gets more conservative as the
beneficiary nears college. Be
sure the plan you choose is
managed by a solid company
with a good investment track
record.

Privacy


/ ,

DALE MOORE



Privacy! Now there's an
endangered species. No, actu-
ally I believe privacy is extinct.
Everyone is talking about
identity theft and one of the
tools the crook uses to break
into your life is your Social
Security number. Did you
know that federal law does
not allow the use of your
Social Security (SS) number
for identification purposes?
Yet, look at your medical card,
driver license, utility bills,
even your Sears card. If the
number is not already on your
account, government or com-
pany officials will ask for it.
While some states permit you


is dead in the United States


to leave your SS number off
your driver license, when you
go in to renew your license or
buy or transfer license plates
for your car, you will be
required to give it. Several
years ago when I opened a
new account with the gas
company they told me they
had to have my Social Se-
curity number. When I
refused, they told me I could
not get service. What could I
do? I gave them a number,
but it wasn't my SS number.
(Don't you tell them!) When I
registered at Eastern Mich-
igan University, they, too,
demanded my SS number to
use as my student number.
When I refused, they sent me
to the dean who acknowl-
edged to me that she also
refused to give her number
but that there was, in fact, a
way to register without
divulging my number. She
called the Registrar and that
was that.
Recently I looked up "So-
cial Security Number" on the
Internet. There are more than
2,100,000 Web sites under
that heading. While some are


with the U.S. Department of
Health and Human Services,
of the first 30 Web sites, 19
advertised: "Investigate any-
one;" "Manage your own pri-
vate online investigation;"
"Investigate your boss;" "Spy
on your neighbor (or lover);"
"Check criminal and bank
records. All you need is the
Social Security number." All
that for a lifetime, unlimited
membership fee of $29.95!
Cell phone conversations
are now picked up out of the
air. Micro-cameras may be
hidden anywhere. Computer
wizards can discover every
site you visit on your comput-
er. Your Social Security num-
ber is now as available to
strangers as your phone
number. Privacy is dead!
It makes one yearn for the
nosy neighbor who used to
peep through closed drapes
to see what you were doing.
She only told your other
neighbors; leaving you with
some shred of privacy, includ-
ing your Social Security num-
ber.
And that's my two cents
worth...


AARP opposes forcing managed-care plan


BY KATHY MARMA
GUEST WRITER

EDITOR'S NOTE: AARP Florida
opposes a state plan to force
Floridians 60 and older to join a
managed-care plan (like an HMO)
if they need vital Medicaid long-
term care services. Part 1 of a
series explains the plan's flaws.

Forcing individuals into
mandatory managed long-
term care severely limits their
choice.
Most older Floridians are
used to making their own
major life decisions. But a
new state plan would force


Floridians 60 and older into
mandatory Medicaid man-
aged-care organizations, like
.HMOs, if they needed vital
long-term care services fi-
nanced by Medicaid.
Once in such a plan, older
Floridians would find their
choices severely limited. The
HMO would choose their
doctor, their hospital and
their nursing home. The
HMO would decide how
much care they could receive.
The HMO could even deny
care that a doctor found was
medically necessary.
AARP Florida knows that
your independence and


choice are important to you
and your family. To be con-
nected toll-free to your legis-
lator, call (800) 880-7640 and
explain that you want to
make your own choices when
it comes to your and your
family's long-term care.
For more information, visit
aarp.org/fl.
Next week: Forcing seniors,
into managed long-term care'
plans may spell big trouble
for seniors who have prob-
lems with quality of care.

New York's MoMA is latest to



embrace the appeal of fine dining


U

Dining at an art museum
usually means a soup-and-
salad lunch buffet. These
days, however, new and re-
vamped art temples include
top-rated restaurants with
sexy cocktail lounges and
stunning dining rooms. It is
as if cuisine is the newest
genre of fine art.
The Modern at MoMA is
one example.
With renowned restaura-
teur Danny Meyer at the
helm, the Modern plays in an
elite league. Others well
known include London's De-
sign Museum Blueprint Cafe
and the restaurant run by
world-class chef Josean Mar-
tinez Alija at the Guggenheim
Museum in Bilbao, Spain.
Also, the restaurant Pikayo in
the Museum of Art of Puerto
Rico ranks high among San
Juan dining experiences.
The trend represents "rec-
ognition that there's a huge
intersection between people
who appreciate art and food,"
says Meyer, who considers
himself among them. "It
makes perfect sense," he
adds. "If hotels, casinos and
other public venues recog-
nize the drawing power (of
fine dining), why would mu-
seums want to excuse them-
selves?"
Partly because design chal-
lenges make the marriage dif-


ficult. By their very nature,
kitchens with high humidity
and grease in the air are
anathema to galleries with
one-of-a-kind, often fragile,
works. That's why so many
museums, such as the Man-
sion Cafe at the Nasher Sculp-
ture Garden, offer food pre-
pared off premises.
Easy access with a separate
street level entrance distin-
guishes the Modern from
many other museum eater-
ies, including Seventeen
Seventeen, the restaurant of
the Dallas Museum of Art. In
a way, Seventeen Seventeen
was ahead of its time, sup-
planting a soup-and-salad
buffet with full-service fine
dining when it opened in
1996. Although lunch is avail-
able weekdays with a Sunday
brunch, dinner is by special
arrangement only. There is a
kitchen on DMA premises.
Likewise, Cafe Modern at the
Modern Art Museum of Fort
Worth also has cooking facili-
ties on site. Service there is
limited to lunch, snacks and
Sunday brunch.
Because of the numbers of
dining venues, there had to
be a kitchen at MoMA, to pro-
vide food for the Modern
(main dining room), adjacent
Bar Room and three cafes on
different levels of the multi-
story midtown museum. This
created major engineering
and design challenges, partic-
ularly venting to provide


fresh, properly humidified air
to the galleries without the
odors and grease that are a
natural part of a kitchen envi-
ronment.
Dining rooms are thought-
fully designed with minimal
decoration in the Bauhaus
style of the original museum
building with the vision of
principal designer Peter Ben-
tel.
Explained Meyer, "I said no
art (in the dining areas). Let's
let the museum be the muse-
um." The Modern dining
room exemplifies this princi-
ple. Done in soft neutral col-
ors, the formal dining room
fades to background with
visual focus on the outdoor
sculpture garden, which it
overlooks. At night, the effect
is stunning.
The Bar Room is a more
casual dining venue, with a
46-foot marble bar and glass
wine wall that holds more
than 2,000 bottles. The muse-
um also recently opened a
gelato bar in the Sculpture
Garden in collaboration with
II Laboratorio del Gelato, a
popular Manhattan ice cream
shop.
Chef Gabriel Kreuther's
resume includes a recent stint
at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel on
Central Park South. His cui-
sine contains mostly subtle
expressions of his French
Alsatian heritage. For exam-
ple, he serves wild salmon
with a horseradish crust, cab-


bage and a Riesling sauce.
The menu also offers typically
country French ingredients
such as sweetbreads, tripe
and wild game. Upscale offer-
ings such as lamb, foie gras,
Arctic char tartare and tuna
carpaccio give it a typically
NewYork flair as well.
As a successful restaurateur
- notably Union Square Cafe,
Gramercy Tavern and Blue
Smoke Meyer insisted that
the bar and restaurant have
their own street level entrance.
In other words, guests don't
have to go through the muse-
um although they can easily
access the museum from the
restaurant.
The idea, says Meyer, is for
"the Modern to be a destina-
tion restaurant (and bar) for
New York and an amenity for
museum-goers."
Integrating dining areas
with the museum is Meyer's
ultimate vision. "When you
go to the restaurant, I think
you should feel like it belongs
here."

As any "road warrior" can
tell you, travel comes with its
own set of anxieties. After a
long day of security lines,
cramped seats and inter-
minable waits, one sure way
to cool out both on the road
and en suite is with YogaAway,
which addresses the chal-
lenges of jet lag, stress and
fatigue, while promoting
relaxation and rejuvenation.
YogaAway is known for its
portability: a comfortable
spot, a peaceful milieu, and a
heartfelt desire to unwind -
that's pretty much all you
need.
To assure that your travel
experience remains beneficial
no matter where you are, here
are some simple travel well-
ness tips from Bija Bennett,
founder of YogaAway:
1. Don't expect hotel car-
peting to be soft enough for
your comfort. If you neglected
to pack your yoga mat, order
extra bath towels from house-
keeping to spread on the floor
for your practice.
2. The recycled air on
planes can leave you feeling
dehydrated. Don't forget to
drink lots of water and pack

JUNE CASAGRANDE



In the TV series "24," which
is sometimes written on
screen as "Twentyfour,"
counter-terrorism agent Jack
Bauer has saved the world
from nuclear destruction,
thwarted poison gas attacks
on civilians, escaped the
clutch of terrorist abductors,
exposed a traitor in the White
House, used a cell phone
nonstop for 24 hours without
the battery dying, and himself
actually risen from the dead.
And, through the miracle
called "suspension of disbe-
lief," I and millions of other
Americans can simply accept
all this.
But when Jack jumps into
his SUV at 9 a.m. at Los
Angeles' Ontario Airport then
comes screeching up five
minutes later in the heart of
the San Fernando Valley per-
haps 30 miles away well,
that's when they've gone too
far.
It's exactly this kind of
absurdity that has been turn-
ing people off of scripted TV
and into the clutches of reali-
ty TV This is why I believe
there's a huge demand for a
new reality show I've come uil
with, called "The Real 24," i"n


which entire episodes contain
nothing but Jack Bauer sitting
in his car for 60 minutes at a
pop.
Oh, and there would be
one more major difference
between my show and the
original: When my show cuts
to commercial, the graphic
would correctly spell out,
"Twenty-four."
The guidelines for writing
numbers especially for
knowing when to spell them
out are ridiculously com-
plicated. Newspapers follow
different guidelines from
books, so the more you read
the less you know. And even ii
you stick to just one style
guide, say the newspaper
style bible the Associated
Press Stylebook, trouble will
find you faster than Jack can
find a wide-open lane on the
110 at rush hour.
AP's basic rule is that num-
bers less than 10 are spelled
out, while 10 and up are writ-
ten as figures. "I guffaw in dis-
belief an average of eight to 12
times during each one-hour
episode."
But AP has literally dozens
of different entries with con-
fusing and seemingly arbi-
trary rules. For example, ages
always require figures. "Jack
looks about 38 years old, his
daughter looks 24 years old
and this might seem perfectly
plausible to an 8-year-old."
You have to look under
"fractions" to see that you're
supposed to spell out and
hyphenate fractions less than
one: "Four-fifths of Jack's time
is spent in the car." But when
writing about ,,5a "a, f|?."

WORD from last Green Sheet
greater than one, fractions
use figures: "Jack's SUV con-
sumes 1-7/8 tanks of gas
every day most of it while
idling." Notice that the whole
number, 1, is connected to
the fraction with a hyphen.
Under "dimensions," AP
tells us that height, width,
depth, etc. use figures as well.
Jack's only 5 feet, 5 inches tall
but his gun is a full 8 inches
long. But you have to turn to
the "weights" to see that this is
true of weights as well. "That's
5 pounds of baloney."
But none of the dozens of
listings referenced in AP's
numbers section will tell you
how to spell and punctuate
numbers. The know where to
turn for this answer, you must
already know where to turn -
or at least read a column by
someone who knows where
to turn:
In the punctuation section
of the AP Stylebook, under
"hyphens," we find our an-
swer; "When large numbers
must be spelled out, use a
hyphen to connect a word
ending in -y to another word:
'twenty-one,' 'fifty-five,' etc."
And that, above all else, is
why the show "Twentyfour" is
nowhere near as successful as
my properly punctuated
show will be.

Put yourself on ICE at the Senior Friendship Center


Beth LaCombe spends a
lot of time at the Senior
Friendship Center teaching
people what she calls Cell
Phone 101. She teaches them
how to use their cell phones.
Beth and her son Andrew, a


1991 Venice High School
graduate came up with ICE
for cell phones.
ICE is an acronym for "in
case of emergency." The idea
is to have an ICE number pro-
gramed on their phone. That
way if there is an emergency,
the responder can just scroll
through the numbers on the
phone and find ICE.
Featured artist
When you visit the quilt
show at the Venice Com-
munity Center today be sure
to see the work presented by
local artist Pam Morris. This
talented lady creates hand
dyed fabrics for her quilts.
Pam's work will be featured

shows. Bravo Pam.

The allure of spring is in the air


SLIM CANDLES


The snow pulls back its
winter covers and brings up a
whole new tomorrow for us.
Where there was darkness
and cold there is now light
and hope and plans. There is
something about the sight of


fresh; wet ground after the
snow leaves, and we find our-
selves walking out into the
back yard each morning and
looking to see if any shoots
are coming up yet.
Where exactly did we put
those bulbs? Right along here,
I'm pretty sure. And the buds
on the peach tree seem to be
swelling with the promise of
rebirth.
Which plants are the
toughest?
Which will come up
through the still-cold ground
after the long winter? It does-
n't matter, really.
Except to us.
Because we want to know.
It's the time of year when
we don't really laugh any


more '.ttn we ge914 canoe
catalog in the mail. Hey, it's
possible there will be warm
weather and liquid water
again, and there's that lake
just over the last portage that
we haven't tried yet.
It's dream time, and it's
doing time.
The women want the
houses clean, and the men
want the yards to look nice.
All of us want the car to run
well and we're thinking about
checking the sleeping bags
for any feathery leaks.
There's that sun, just hit-
ting the backs of our necks
when we stand still in front of
the house.
The neighbors don't have
to know we're standing there


just to feel that warmth, that
promise, that tiny hint that
says later in the year we'll
want the lemonade to be cold

We can always pretend
we're watching the dog or the
kids instead of delving into
the hedonistic pleasures of

eyes as she runs around the
yard with the reckless aban-
don of an animal bereft of the
burden of domesticity.
She knows. We both know.
It's spring.

ONE LAST WORD


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