1-75 limit to



stay at 70 mph

The state says it can't lower the speed limit from
the maximum because 85 percent of vehicles on
the road are going at least that fast.


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Put the pedal to the metal
if you want to keep up with
traffic on Interstate 75.
Drivers average between
72 and 78 mph on the high-
way along a
stretch from '1. "
M an atee .r ;,
County to
Collier Coun- 60h
ty.
And they
won't be forc-
ed to slow
down by low- '.
er speed lim- Mills
its anytime
soon.
The Florida Department of
Transportation was asked by
the Sarasota-Manatee Metro-
politan Planning Organiza-
tion to do a study to find out if
it, would be appropriate to
lower the speed limit.
Sarasota County Commis-
sion Chair David Mills, an MPO
member, suggested FDOT low-
er the speed limit to decrease
the number of crashes.
But FDOT District 1 Sec-
retary Stanley Cann said he
couldn't lower the speed limit,
since 85 percent of all drivers
average at or above 70 mph, the
state's maximum speed limit.
"The results show that we
need to stay at 70," Cann said.
According to the study, dri-
vers actually ranged in speed
from 53 mph to 95 mph, de-
pending on the stretch of road.
In Sarasota County, the
speeds ranged from 60 mph
to 82 mph between Fruitville
Road and University Parkway;
an average of 107,500 vehicles
used the road daily.


Between Laurel Road and
State Road 681 in the Laurel-
Nokomis area, driving speed
ranged between 60 mph and
85 mph; an average of 70,000
vehicles were on the road
daily.
In Charlotte County, the
speedss rang-
Wy. ed between
e' 60 mph and
S84 mph from
SU.S. 17 to
Harborview
SRoad for the
daily average
of 56,000 ve-
hicles. Vehic-
Thaxton les ranged be-
tween 57 mph
and 83 mph between Tuckers
Grade in Charlotte County
and State Road 78 in Lee
County; Some 38,000 vehicles
used the stretch of road on
average.
Comfort level
The reason for the high
speeds even when there is
congestion is that drivers
tend to travel at a speed at
which they feel comfortable,
Cann said.
"If the speed limits were
lowered, some drivers would
go slower, but some would
maintain the higher speed
they feel comfortable at,"
Cann said. "With more higher
and lower speeds it causes
more conflict."
Mills wondered how any-
one could speed when some
sections of 1-75 (between
Fruitville Road and University
Parkway) see an average of
107,500 vehicles per day.

Mayor Dean Calamaras speaks with audience members before the start of Tuesday's city council meeting. The three-
term mayor announced he will retire in May after being involved in city government for 25 years.



Calamaras leaving office early


His business and house sold, the mayor and his wife decide
not to wait to relocate to Georgia. Supporters credit him with
revitalizing Venice, while critics blame him for federal
investigations and overdevelopment.


BY J.J. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


Recent downturns in the Florida
real estate market have sellers waiting
a little longer than usual for a deal to
go through.
Unexpectedly, that wasn't the case
for Mayor Dean Calamaras and his
wife, Barbara. Their home at 1334 Pine
Needle Road sold after only one day
on the market.
With his home and cleaning busi-


ness, Southern Homife Services, both
sold a year sooner than planned,
Calamaras announced his retirement
as mayor with more than a year
remaining on his term. His resigna-
tion most likely will not be official
until late May, Calamaras said.
Calamaras has served as mayor,
city council member, planning com-
missioner or citizen board member
for 25 years. He would have reached
his nine-year, three-term limit as
mayor in November 2007.


"We fully expected (the house) not
to sell for most of the summer,"
Calamaras said. "We thought it would
take a while.
"We underpriced it a bit, which
helps. ... We started talking about it,
'Why should we wait another whole
year (to retire in 2007)?"'
Calamaras, 61, and his wife plan to
relocate to the North Georgia area and
vacation in Venice during the winter.
Their daughter and a grandchild live
in Decatur, Ga.
Barbara knows her husband will
miss serving Venice, but she is ready
for him to step out of the spotlight and
criticism that comes with being on
city council.

Good morning, Gondolier

BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


Is traffic congestion be-
yond fixing? Can we find
additional sources of drinking
water? What is going to stop
urban sprawl? Will there ever
be enough affordable hous-
ing?
Those questions, all of
which involve planning, face
Sarasota County on a daily
basis. Just consult the weekly
agenda of the Board of Coun-
ty Commissioners; you'll see
that they wrestle with these
issues all the time.
But there is a growing
movement among neighbor-
hood associations and com-
munity activists, who are
impatient with the progress
the county commissioners
are making.
William Koller, an architect
and past president of the
Sarasota County Council of
Neighborhood Associations,
says, "There is a greater need
for citizens to band together
to be proactive in addressing
these issues."
A meeting a few weeks ago
of representatives of CONA,
the SouthVenice 2010 organi-
zation and the Alliance in
Englewood at the Jacaranda
Library did just that. Gi Dev-
eny, who chaired the meeting,


FRONT SECTION


confirmed the group's plans
to follow Koller's counsel.
"We agreed we need to
work harder to let our elected
representatives know what
we need now to improve the
county," she said.
A teacher
It's an approach Deveny
has pursued for the past 16
years and
taught to oth-
ers, according
to County "
Commission-
er Shannon
Staub. -Ki
"Gi's a
great teacher, ..
and not just
in a public Deveny
school room.
She has shown lots of neigh-
borhood associations how to
be effective in a professional
and civil way."
The two, together with
their neighbors, faced with an
explosion of commercial de-
velopment at Jacaranda Boul-
evard and U.S. 41 in 1994,
found ways to get the com-
missioners to listen to their
concerns.
Staub remembers that "we
were only a few, but we want-
ed the county to appreciate
that we knew how to organize
in opposition. A hearing was


scheduled on Halloween, and
we showed up to testify with
pumpkin ornaments on our
shirts. From then on, we were
known as the 'pumpkin kids.'
But we made our impres-
sion."
Staub shared the memory
last week at a county com-
mission meeting, at which
Deveny was honored for her
contributions
to the com-

on a site at the
intersection they thought was
too small. Fifty neighbors
turned out for a first meeting,
"and we just grew and grew,"
said Staub. It prompted her
interest in politics, and two
years later she was elected a
commissioner.

More burglaries;

Charlotte County

connection suspected


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

A string of recent business
burglaries in Venice and
Charlotte County could be
connected, police said.
"We've been talking with
Charlotte County," Interim
Venice Police Chief Dan Mc-
Googan said. "They've had a
bunch of them down there
and wanted to find out more
about ours."
Five Venice businesses and
restaurants were broken into
in one night several weeks
ago, Detective Sgt. Mike
Treanor said. Two more local
businesses were hit last week.
"They're going for the
money, cash drawers," Mc-
Googan said. "They even took
a safe from one place."
Police do not know how
many burglars may be in-
volved. McGoogan said there
are at least two, possibly
more. However, he stopped
short of calling it an orga-
nized ring.
No suspects are in custody.
It is not known if the bur-

glaries are drug related.
Investigators theorize one
scenario could involve one
burglar dropping others off at
different locations then cir-
cling back to pick them up
after they robbed the place.
The thieves apparently
work fast. Treanor said police
patrolling Grove Terrace last
week got a call that The Farm
Store on Venice Avenue just
east of U.S. 41 Bypass was
being hit. By the time the offi-
cer got there, a distance of less
than a mile, the burglars were
gone.
In the March 21 burglary of
Stop N Shop, 802 E. Venice
Ave., the burglars stole the
cash register. The owner said
there was usually about $400
cash in the drawer.
Police said there were two
other business burglaries in
the county on the same night.
One was at a bait shop
north of Venice and the other
was a convenience store in
South Venice.

This past weekend was
not a glorious weekend for
Florida.
Thousands of college stu-
dents on spring break will go
home and bad-mouth our
beloved state. Beach weather
was replaced by winter.
The producers of an an-
nual spring break film have
changed the title to "Girls
Gone Cold."
In winds that made the
below-normal temperatures
even chillier, the words "We
should have gone to Cancun"
could be heard. These are
not words area businesses

Marathon council

sessions are back
From the March 27, 1975, Venice Gondolier Sun


STAFF REPORT


Venice City Council has
returned to its "marathon"
sessions. For the second
meeting in a row, council
worked from 7:30 p.m. until
midnight. The council had
gone to weekly meetings to
avoid such sessions. But
when those meetings became
extremely short the council
decided to return to twice


monthly meetings with spe-
cial sessions if the schedule
became heavy.
No one item dominated
the agenda. Nineteen sched-
uled items were discussed
with an additional two hours
dedicated to officers reports.
More than 45 minutes was
devoted to setting rates for
tennis courts. Several tennis
players objected to regulating
the courts, saying no prob-

lems exist.
Council pointed out that
no problems exist in the early
morning hours, but after-
noons and evenings are ex-
tremely crowded. In addition
county residents make use of
the courts paid for by city
taxes. The county does not
provide tennis courts of its
own.
The problem is further
complicated by Venice High
School's tennis team, which
uses the courts for practice


and matches.
The school system has re-
fused to build its own courts,
forcing the team to rely on
the city. Council asked that
proposed rates and regula-
tions be published so that the
public can respond at the
next city council meeting.
City Attorney Charles
Wheeler said the problem of
stationary "mobile" fruit
stands recently criticized by
the council should be handled
by zoning rather licensing.

City council settles wrongful death lawsuit


Widower claims VPD failed to tell
county jailers his wife was suicidal.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


A lawsuit stemming from a
domestic violence call that
ended with a jailhouse suicide
has been settled.
Venice City Council ap-
proved the $370,000 settle-
ment in a wrongful death
lawsuit Tuesday. The vote
was 6-0. Vice Mayor Fred
Hammett was on vacation
and did not vote.
City Attorney Bob Ander-
son conducted settlement
negotiations and, after con-
ferring with the city manager
and Venice's insurance advi-
sor, said the settlement was
in the city's best interest.
Venice Police Department
received the call Dec. 6, 2003,
and three officers responded
to the home of Karl and
Elizabeth Stebbins. The wife,
Elizabeth, was arrested and
transported to the South
County jail.
Reports state she was in-
toxicated and uncooperative.
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office assumed custody and
placed her in a holding cell.
The following morning,
she committed suicide by
hanging herself in her cell.
"It is alleged that at the time
of the arrest, Karl Stebbins
told the Venice police officers
that Elizabeth suffered from
depression, had attempted
suicide in the past and had
stopped taking her prescrib-
ed medications," Anderson
wrote in his memo to coun-
cil. "This information was
not communicated by the
Venice police officers to the
Sheriff's personnel operating
the jail."
The lawsuit claims due


process violations and negli-
gence.
Mediation meetings were
held March 1 and 16. The
agreement is contingent on
city council and Sarasota
County Commission approv-
al.
Venice will pay $25,000
(its insurance deductible),
Sarasota County Sheriff
$60,000 and the city's liabil-
ity insurance carrier will pay
the remaining $285,000.
Skate park
gets $39K
Venice City Council mem-
bers approved giving another
$39,000 to the South County
YMCA Skateboard Park. The
money would go toward
relocation of the skate park
and to purchase more-chal-
lenging equipment. Sarasota
County also has been asked
for a similar contribution.
The park is a joint venture
between the city, county and
YMCA. The county and city
each contributed $100,000
toward the park, and Venice
YMCA handles day-to-day
operations and insurance.
Airport update
The city may find out in
May if the Federal Aviation
Administration will award a
$3.8 million grant to rebuild
Venice Municipal Airport
runway 13-31, according to a
city council report given by
Airport Manager Fred Watts
on Tuesday.
Watts added that trying to
switch grant proposals from
runway 13-31 to runway 4-22
could jeopardize funding for
both. Airport neighbors,
mostly in the Golden Beach
community, want runway 4-


22 rebuilt first because their
homes are closest to runway
13-31 and all its noise.
All aspects of the 13-31
design plan are done, but
4-22 reconstruction may run
into some problems. FAA
requires a safety zone of
1,000 feet at the end of a
runway, which as of right
now, doesn't exist at the end
of runway 4-22.
"If the FAA is going to
give us ($3.8 million of) their
money, we have to prove we
meet all their requirements.
... There are potential legal
issues with 4-22, but no legal
issues on 13-31," Watts said.
Council members and
Watts emphasized they are
not ignoring resident con-
cerns. Watts said design
plans for runway 4-22 recon-
struction should be done
within eight weeks.
While that's too late for
the current FAA grant cycle,
Watts is hopeful a strong
13-31 grant application this
year will win funding next
year for runway 4-22.
The city also continues
working toward creating an
airport marina as an income
generator; evaluating all air-
port lease agreements pre-
sent and future to deter-
mine if the city is charging
enough; and general airport
improvements such as noise
abatement.
Also on Tuesday
Other items discussed:
Park rules Council
adopted new rules and regula-
tions governing the city's
parks, affecting issues skate-
boarders, bicyclists and dog
walkers. Rules against skate-
boarding, bicycling and in-
line skating were reworded to
prohibit these in specific
regions of parks, instead of
banning the activities entirely.

Also, pets will be allowed in
15 out of the city's 28 parks.
Existing city rules prohibit
pets in all parks. The 13 parks
where pets continue to be
outlawed were considered
"recreational parks" with
ball fields and playgrounds
where a dog running loose
could be a safety hazard.
Tripping lawsuit -
Council approved settling a
trip-and-fall lawsuit, filed by
Hazel Charlton, for $15,000.
The claim states that Char-
lton tripped over a city-built
curb at Grace United Meth-
odist Church on Feb. 23,
2003, and suffered a broken
jaw and fractured left wrist.
Foundation Park -
Approved $395,000 contract,
plus another $39,000 in de-
sign costs, to Jon E Swift
Inc. to build Foundation
Park next to Venice Little
Theatre.
EAR Report Adopted


the revised Evaluation and
Appraisal Report, a state
requirement in the updating
of the city' comprehensive
plan.
VUD District -
Approved the rezoning of a
portion of U.S. 41 Business
to Venetian Urban Design
Overlay District.
Kelley's Way- Approved
the rezoning of a section of
the Historic Apartment
District for a project named
Kelley's Way. Mayor Dean
Calamaras and Council
member John Simmonds
renewed their opposition,
both casting "no" votes. The
mayor said Venice shouldn't
be granting increased density
"for homes already going for
$750,000 each." Both feel that
higher density, at 18 units per
acre, is intended to promote
affordability.
Venice Shrine Club -
Heard first reading on rezon-


ing a parcel at the south-
western intersection of East
Venice Avenue and Auburn
Road for what will be the
newVenice Shrine Club loca-
tion.
Knights Trail Project -
Heard first reading on re-
zoning nearly 29 acres at
2201 Knights Trail Road from
rural to residential multi-
family. Developers intend to
build 240 condominium
units and a clubhouse.
Habitat property -
Heard first reading on re-
zoning 2 acres on Knights
Trail Road from.rural to gov-
ernment use. Venice contin-
ues negotiating with Venice
Area Habitat for Humanity
for a land lease to create
15-20 townhouse units and
Venice YMCA to build a satel-
lite branch on the 2 acres.

Red-light camera supporters


push to change law this year


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

A bill floating around the
statehouse in Tallahassee
seeks to make cameras a legal
way to cite people for running
red lights.
House Bill 259, "The Mark
Wandall Traffic Safety Act," is
being promoted by state Rep.
Ron Reagan and needs more
local support, said Neil Spi-
ritas of the STOP Red Light
Running! Coalition of Florida.
Spiritas received a letter of
support for the bill Monday
from the members of the
Sarasota-Manatee Metropol-
itan Planning Organization.
"We have been pushing
this for a long time and we
hope this is the year," Spiritas
said.
The Florida Highway Patrol
reports that in 2004 red-light
running in Florida caused 96
deaths and 6,000 injuries, the
coalition said on its Web site.
Sarasota City Commis-
sioner Lou Ann Palmer said
there was not much support
for the bill in the state
Legislature.
"It is a privacy issue,"
Palmer said of the concerns
raised.
The courts, however, have
ruled that people driving
down a public street don't
have a right to that level of
privacy.
Some proof
Under the bill, cameras
would take two photos of
violating vehicles. The first


"7


would show the car before it
crossed into the intersection
and after the light turned red.
The second would show the
car in the intersection with
the light on red.
Red light-cameras are
computer controlled and
designed to only capture
images of vehicles running
red lights. The cameras don't
record images except when
the signal is red.
The coalition and the bill
contend that red-light cam-
eras are an effective tool to
make streets safer.
There is disagreement over
whether local governments
even have the authority to use
the cameras to issue tickets.
By discouraging red-light
running, these cameras are
potential lifesavers, the coali-
tion contends.
Twenty-one states use
automatic cameras to crack
down on red-light runners.
Cameras work around the
clock at bad intersections,
and are said to be nearly
100-percent effective in iden-
tifying the violating vehicles.
Critics question whether
the cameras actually help.
Meanwhile, the Federal
Highway Administration re-
cently concluded that the
cameras did help to reduce
typical red-light running
crashes in which one car gets
T-boned by another (the most
dangerous type of collision),
the coalition site states.
Watching the money
North Port City Commis-


sioner Fred Tower said he has
heard that a basic concern is
over the costs of setting up a
permanent program.
"They find every reason
why they can't do it and not
why they can," Tower said of
the Legislature.
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Jon Thaxton is among
those who say it does not
make sense to bar red-light
cameras at the same time
cameras are used to catch
drivers who skip paying tolls.
"I can't get it," Thaxton
said. "It seems we have cam-
eras on all of the money and
not on what is taking people's
lives."
There are six pilot pro-
grams 'being run across the
state to provide the red light
violation data needed to
prompt serious consideration
of the bill, according to the
coalition.
On Jan. 24, Sarasota Coun-
ty activated two photo
enforcement cameras and
drivers began receiving warn-
ing notices in the mail. More
than 150 violators were spot-
ted in the first month. The
cameras are at Lockwood
Ridge Road and 17th Street
in Sarasota, and Jacaranda
Boulevard and Commercial
Court/Executive Drive in
Venice.

Bypass design may kill



sidewalks, bike paths


Cutting back the amount of land needed
could save millions, but the project
isn't funded now regardless of its design.


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Options abound when it
comes to designing the Venice
Bypass widening.
None of the options spares
impacts on 19 businesses
near Venice Avenue.
Those businesses remain in
limbo, because there is no
money to do the work.
Florida Department of
Transportation officials are
making a series of presenta-
tions to local officials and
citizens in hopes of formaliz-
ing the final design for the
project by the end of summer.
Each option shrinks the
scope of the project, with a
corresponding benefit that
less land for right of way has to
be purchased.
The disadvantage to the
smaller road is the loss, of
some of the amenities, such
as bike paths and even side-
walks.
Members of the Sarasota-
Manatee Metropolitan Plan-
ning Organization heard the
FDOT plans this week.
While FDOT is closer to
locking in a formal design for
the project, the officials were
quick to point out that there
is no money in the budget to
actually start construction.
This means all the cost esti-
mates are subject to dramatic
change.
The current cost estimate is
$104 million, but changes to
the design could reduce the
need to purchase rights of
way to expand the bypass
from four to .six lanes frpm
Bird Bay Drive about '2.5
miles south to Center Road.
The cheapest scenario would
be as little as $54 million.
The original design from
1994, called for 140-foot-wide


and 180-foot-wide sections.
That would have included
12-foot-wide lanes, 4-foot-
wide bike lines, 8-foot-wide
pathways and a 30-foot raised
median.
It could be squeezed down
to the state minimum for six-
lane urban roadways of 106
feet, eliminating the bike
lanes and shrink four of the
lanes to 11 feet.
The section near Venice
Avenue, where the 19 busi-
nesses and a church sit, cur-
rently has a right of way of
only 80 feet, meaning any
widening to 106 feet or greater
will affect those properties.
'Suicide'
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Nora Patterson re-
ceived.assurances from FDOT
officials that they will look at
possibly adding the 8-feet
needed for the bike lanes no
matter which design is ap-
proved.
"I think it is important to
have them," Patterson con-
tends. '"Arbitrarily removing
them makes little sense."
Each of the county com-
missioners has been skep-
tical in recent months about
FDOT's cost-cutting efforts,
which cut out bike lanes to
save money.
Jeff Trim, of Wade-Trim
Design, is working on the
design of FDOT, estimated
that adding the extra 8 feet
could add up to $4 million in
the total cost of the project,
primarily for right of way
acquisition.
STrim also said that abou
150 people showed up for a,
public meeting two weeks
ago at the Venice Community
Center with few supporting
bike lanes.
"Many consider it suicide


to try to bike along such a
busy road," Trim said.
Patterson asked for an
additional cost and design
scenario with the narrower
travel lanes and keeping the
bike lanes.
FDOT officials said that
they would come up with
the additional numbers and
bring it back.
To be refined
Venice City Council Mem-
ber Vicki Taylor was worried
that there has been limited
public input so far with one
informal public meeting.
Taylor said that she is also
concerned about the smaller
right of way, not about the
loss of the bike lanes, but that
it limits any decorative land-
scaping options.
The MPO members were
also uncomfortable hearing
the presentation when it had
not been reviewed by the
boards Technical Advisory
Committee and Citizen's Ad-
visory Committee.
Those boards will hear the
presentations in the coming
month and report back.
FDOT will also formally
present the concept for re-
view to the county commis-
sioners and Venice City
Council.
"They will' refine it and
come back with a preferred
alternative," Trim said.
A formal public hearing
will be held during the sum-
mer to present to the public
the preferred improvement
alternative.
From there, the design
plan will then be sent to the
Federal Highway Adminis-
tration for approval.
Money for the right of
way and 'construction is not
withn FibOTs five-year work
progrl arid there is no plan
to build it beyond that time.

DEPARTING o pee
be solved by 2010.
"I'm not optimistic we can
make that goal in the next
four years, even though we've
grown into a sizable group,"
she said.
The coalition grew to rep-
resent 15 neighborhood asso-
ciations in South Venice,
ranging in size from one of
just 54 members to the
Plantation, with 2,200.
"I practically lived at the


county planning offices,"
Deveny remembers. "At first, I
knew nothing about plan-
ning, but I'm a fast learner. So
when the rumors of the
Home Depot began, and the
county planners assured me
it wouldn't happen, I and my
neighbors were ready. And, of
course, the store did come.
"So, we started showing up
to testify at public meetings,
going one-on-one with com-
missioners, who treated our
concerns in such a cavalier


manner," Deveny says. "My
neighbor, Frank Moore, was
told he knew nothing about
traffic. Yet, when he was in the
military in World War II, he
was responsible for the
administration of 27 airfields.
He knew a lot more than
those commissioners."
Back to West Virginia
Deveny thinks that elected
officials, because they then
and now have staff support
and information, think they


know more than citizens tes-
tifying at public meetings.
"But nobody knows more
than we about our neighbor-
hoods," Deveny declared.
"Even though most of us are
retired, we have provided pro-
fessional research and have
practiced what we preach in
the workplace long before
some staffers were born.
"They're good. But so are
we," she added.
Deveny first lived near the
beach in Englewood, then


moved 16 years ago to Hour-
glass Lake Estates in Venice.
"We were eager to live
here, and loved it so much
that we convinced five of our
nine children to move to the
area," she said.
But she has decided to
return to Huntington, W. Va.
"Just 50,000 people live
there, and it's a college town.
Everything is just 10 minutes
away.")
"The traffic has become so
bad," said Deveny, "there are


some days it's too difficult to
get out of my neighborhood
onto State Road 776. It's wear-
ing us down."
"Today, you can't tell the
neighborhood representa-
tives from the consultants at
commission hearings," said
Staub. "Gi Deveny taught all
of us how to be so effective.
We're going to miss her."
Ann Kaplan, president of
CONA, added, "Gi has been a
community asset. She will be
impossible to replace."


LEAVING n


"I'm tired of the comments
that are lies," Barbara said.
"He can let them roll' off his
back. I can't. It's too hard."
Community reaction
The announcement drew
mixed reactions from sup-
porters and critics of Cala-
maras.
Vice Mayor Fred Hammett
pointed to the mayor's contri-
butions to creating Venice's
architectural theme of North-
ern Italian Renaissance style.
Calamaras was among
those who proposed the
Venetian Gateway Gateway
Overlay District for East
Venice Avenue nearly 20 years
ago. This eventually led to the
creation of Venice island's
other themed districts, His-
toric and Venetian, and the
creation of the Architectural
Review Board.
"I'm very sorry to see him
go," Hammett said. "He's
done a lot to guide the city.
One of the things he's most
proud of is the Venetian
Gateway District and trying to
have some consistency in
design of the community....
We're going to lose some
experience and knowledge
(when he moves) that would
have been better to right
here."
Critics of the mayor have
accused him of coddling
developers and failing to
manage utilities department
problems that led to state and
federal investigations. Last
year, Venice pleaded guilty
felony counts of violating fed-
eral Clean Water Act laws for
dumping treated wastewater,
called reclaimed water, into
Curry Creek and Knights Trail
Park, and then forging docu-
ments detailing what was
dumped.
The mayor's two sharpest


SUCCEEDING THE MAYOR
Mayor Dean Calamaras has announced he will retire in late May,
with 18 months remaining on his unexpired term. Here is how his
successor will be chosen:
- A current member will be appointed by city council to serve as
mayor until the election this November. The vice mayor is not
automatically selected. A resident will be appointed to fill the seat
of the city council member who becomes interim mayor.
* In November, an election will be held to fill the remaining year
left on the mayor's current term. (The terms of council members
John Simmonds and Vicki Taylor also will expire.) The interim
mayor will resume his or her original seat on council, and the tem-
porary council person will no longer be a member.
* Another election will be held November 2007, this time for a full
three-year mayoral term.
* Any current city council member is eligible to run for the mayor s
seat in November. However, he or she must resign from his or her
current council seat effective on election day in order to run
for mayor. The resignation once submined, cannot be rescinded.
* Because of term limits things get more complicated if a current
city council member decides to run. The current ciry Lharter states
that no person can be elected to more than three consecutive,
three-year terms without signing out at least one year.
* Charter Review Committee members are looking over a proposal
to alter term limits so a nine-year council member does not have
to sit out a year to run for mayor and vice versa Voters must
approved such a recommendation possibly on the ballot this
November.
- When asked Tuesday, none of the city council members said they
would run for the one-year mayoral term. Simmonds joked he
would only do so if every member endorsed him, while Taylor
admitted she had not ruled it out.


critics have been Herb Le-
vine, president of the Venice
Taxpayers League, and John
Patten, creator of a commu-
nity Web site. Levine recently
refiled a lawsuit that includes
Calamaras as a defendant
based on Levine's arrest at a
Sept. 24, 2002, city council

Patten's criticisms of the
mayor prompted Calamaras
to recently refer to his Web
site, veniceflorida.com, as the
"worst thing to ever happen"
to Venice. Patten blames the
mayor for ignoring problems
in the utilities department
that eventually led to more
than $1 million in fines and

"I'm more critical of what
the mayor hasn't done, espe-
cially in terms of the
(Environmental Protection
Agency) investigation. ...
From my perspective, a lot of
the blame of the EPA investi-
gation lies at his feet because
of the sins of omission,"
Patten said. ....
No connection
Calamaras denies that his
early, retirement has anything
to do with his critics or the
ongoing grand jury investiga-
tion into the 2001 EPA viola-
tions.
The mayor reiterated what


City Attorney Bob Anderson
and City Manager Marty
Black have said for more than
a year: No current city em-
ployee or official is being in-
vestigated by the EPA.
The city attorney went a
step further at Tuesday night's
council meeting.
"This investigation has
never focused on any elected
member of Venice. ... There's
been some misinformation
out there, and I just want to
set the record straight," An-
derson said.
In the city's plea agree-
ment, it promised to assist
prosecutors in bringing
charges against the individu-
als responsible for the re-
claimed water dumping. All
wastewater supervisors were
terminated in August 2004
and replaced with a private
management company.
"The EPA investigation is,
for all practical purposes,
over," Calamaras said. "There
are no current public officials
or managers being investigat-
ed, period."
The longtime mayor
knows that, eventually, there
will be little doubt as to his
Venice legacy.
Residents and tourists will
experience it every time they
visit Paw Park, the only dog
park that's on the beach; use
the public boat launch at
Venice Train Depot; admire
the Venice Historic Theme
District architecture down-
town; walk down a rebuilt
fishing pier; a bustling down-
town instead of the 1980s ver-
sion with empty storefronts;
or huddle in the Venice
Community Center that's
been converted into a hurri-
cane shelter.
All of these, and more,
were pushed through by
Calamaras.

THE CALAMARAS LEGACY
Mayor Dean Calamaras was asked to list his top five accomplish-
ments as a member of Venice City Council, dating back to his first
term in 1986. (He served nine years, sat out three years, and then
was elected mayor in 1998.) Here are his picks:
- In the mid-1980s, the Venetian Gateway Overlay District for East
Venice Avenue that established Northern Italian Renaissance as a
featured architectural style and strict 35-feet height limits.
- Soon after the Venetian Gateway was created, the much more
stringent architectural standards creating the Historic and
Venetian Theme districts on Venice island and the Architectural
Review Board.
* Creation of the marine park and boat ramp at the Historic Venice
Train Depot, as well as Paw Park on the beach. Calamaras takes
credit for coming up with the Paw Park idea, and advocated heav-
ily for both.
. Venice's two major bond issues. The first one, 20 years ago,
rebuilt city hall, fire station No. 2 on Grove Street and the police
station. The second bond issue, a voter-approved $10 million
bond from 2003, funded renovation of Venice Community Center,
the Municipal Fishing Pier, conversion of the island sewage treat-
ment plant into a park and restocking Venice's beach with sand.
- Helping broker the relocation of the concrete plants to North
Venice, opening the industrialized area next to the Intracoastal
Waterway and Venice Train Depot to redevelopment.


"This is the best time for
Venice right now," Calamaras
said. "All of that was done in
the early days and carried on
to right now. ... Those are
accomplishments I can look


back on and be really proud
of."

Lawmaker hatching plan for Save Our Homes tax break


BY BARRY MILLMAN
STAFF WRITER

Fred Brummer is one state
legislator who feels that tax-
paying Floridians ought to
take a greater interest in their
local government and he is
working on a plan he hopes
will eventually spur mobs of
them to get more involved.
"I think taxpayers should
be at every local government
meeting asking questions and
demanding to know where
and how every dollar of their
money is being spent," he
said Wednesday. "You know
the torch scene in the movie
'Frankenstein'? That's how I'd
love to see every one of those
meetings."
Check your pitchforks at
the door.
On the face of it, the certi-
fied public accountant's
dream of a fully engaged elec-
torate storming municipal
facilities for answers and
demanding accountability
from elected officials may
appear more like a creature
feature than a reality show.
However, the Apopka Re-
publican, who chairs the
House Finance & Tax Com-
mittee, is in a unique and
powerful position to write his
own script and direct his idea
into a statewide production.
And in the process, he
hopes to force greater scruti-
ny of local government offi-
cials with an eye toward rein-
ing in what he sees as run-
away, wasteful spending.
"They keep the tax rate the



LIMI from Page A
half-mile and are at a stand-
still to get off at Fruitville," he
added. "Unfortunately, we
have a community that uses I-
75 as a local road."
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Jon Thaxton called the
numbers "prticularlv telling"
for showing that dhe speed
ranges are similar where the
interstate is four and six lanes.
Those numbers show that
the reason for so many more
crashes where the highway is
only four lanes is the varying
speeds, he said.
"It really tells us what we
already know," Thaxton said.
Cann said all is not lost on
1-75: FDOT will expand the
scope of the study to look at
accident records. That will
concentrate on why the
crashes occur.
"We will try to lower the
number," Cann said. "Usually
where conflicts occur."
FDOT will identify which
segments of the interstate are
more prone to crashes and
then develop a program to
address the problem in all five
counties the highway runs
through.
Cann could offer no hint'as
to what solution could be
found except for changes in
signs or road striping and
possibly in lighting.

same as property values go
up and spend the extra
money like drunken sailors,"
he said. "That's the real heart
of the tax problem. Local
taxes have increased way out
of proportion to population
growth."
The key to his plan, he
said, will be exploiting the
current fervor among many
Floridians and quite a few
state legislators to expand the
tax benefit provided by the
Save Our Homes constitu-
tional amendment.
"Every SOH bill that's been
filed has to go through my
committee in the House," he
said. "But I'll tell you right
now, the only one that's com-
ing out is going to be mine. I
haven't worked out all the
details yet, but I'm going to
write a committee bill that's
effective, that addresses the
issues and makes sense for all
taxpayers."
Brummer's plan, ironically,
relies upon expanding a tax
measure he despises.
Trapped
Ever since the SOH consti-
tutional amendment ap-
proved by state voters went
into effect 11 years ago, the
annual assessment on home-
stead property a primary
residence has been limited
to 3 percent or the Consumer
Price Index rate, whichever is
lower.
To recapture the lost rev-
enue from the tax break for
local governments, the

amendment decrees that
when homeowners sell their
home and buy another one,
the annual tax assessment
they assume on the new one
is based on its full purchase
price.

The amendment has ful-
filled its objective of protect-
ing retirees on fixed incomes
from escalating taxes that
might otherwise force them
to move from the last home
they ever intended to own.
It has also resulted in a
lucrative potential windfall
for many Florida homeown-
ers by restraining the tax bur-
den on their properties as real
estate values have rocketed to
record highs.
However, as the state's
population has ballooned
over the past decade and its
population has become rich-
er and more diverse, the
number of residents who
wish to move from place to
place for economic or quali-
ty-of-life reasons has
increased.
The tax bite they feel when
they do move has sharpened
appreciably along with the
cost of real estate to the
point that many wishing to
move now feel trapped in
their own homes, unable to
afford the higher price tag on
a similar home elsewhere in
the state, along with the high-
er annual tax bill that comes
with it.
Drunken sailors
Many believe portability-


the ability to apply the SOH
benefit from a sold home to a
new one is the answer to
the problem.
Many more not currently
benefiting from the SOH tax
break owners of business-
'es, agricultural land, invest-
ment properties and snow-
birds with second homes in
the state would like to real-
ize the same saving on their
properties.
And more than a half-
dozen legislators are offering
various bills that would help
them achieve their goals.
However, to Brummer, the
SOH amendment has created
a monster in the form of an
inequitable, regressive tax
structure and the golden
stake needed to kill it lies far
beyond the marble halls of
the state capital, in the hands
of local officials.
"If someone gets a tax
break, someone else has to
pay the difference for the ser-
vices everyone needs," he
said. "SOH started out as a
benefit for the poor elderly,
and it has grown into some-
thing everyone else now con-
siders is an entitlement. The
fact is, Save Our Homes has
been a boon to the wealthy
and a burden for the poor
homeowner from the start.
Taxpayers need to wake up."
Brummer points to a
Senate Ways and Means
report that found 60 percent
of the homes deriving a tax
benefit from SOH split rough-
ly 20 percent of the amend-


ment's total financial benefit
- the difference between the
appraised value of eligible
properties and their just-
assessed value for an aver-
age annual tax break of less
than $400.
"And the top 2.4 percent of
the most expensive homes in
the state split 20 percent of
the benefit," he said. "That's
the multimillion-dollar
homeowners. Who do you
think that leaves to pay most
of the taxes?
"The answer can't be more
inequitable tax breaks. The
local governments just keep
their tax rates steady and
spend the increased revenues
from rising property values
like drunken sailors.
"Offer more tax breaks,
and they'll just up the millage
rate, so homeowners, busi-
ness owners and farmers will
simply shoulder more of the
burden. To be truly equitable,
the burden should be on
everybody."
What Brummer envisions
is "something like an SOH cap
on all properties," he said.
Only then, he feels, when
millage rates rise and max
out, will taxpayers be prod-
ded into more closely scruti-
nizing the basis for local tax
rates and the expenditures
they support.
"The SOH amendment put
homeowners to sleep," he
said. "They think they're pro-
tected by the cap, but that
doesn't stop their local gov-
ernment from spending more


money. And it's their money."
Frank Desguin, Charlotte
County's property appraiser,
said he is neutral when it
comes to public tax policy,
but added that Brummer's
"Frankenstein" approach to
solving the SOH tax crunch
was grounded in real-world
facts.
"He certainly has a point,"
said Desguin, who was
enroute to the state capital
recently to monitor yet
another SOH-related bill
being heard in the Senate. "If
people are truly concerned
about the local tax burden,
they need to look at the local
taxing authorities. And SOH
has effectively taken the vot-
ers out of the equation."
Charlotte County Com-
missioner Adam Cummings
said he didn't think a wide-
spread expansion of the SOH
tax benefit would increase the
number of taxpayers already
participating in the county's
tax- and budget-setting pro-
cesses at least at first.
"We'd just have to raise the
millage until it hit the maxi-
mum allowed at 10," he said.
'After that, it's a slow strangu-
lation. If you want to reduce
taxes, you have to deal with it
by cutting expenses. People
are going to get upset over
how much they're going to
pay either way. And you get
what you pay for."

Verizon cable proposal to get public hearing

The need for competition

Sarasota County commis-

After a lengthy discussion
the board decided to set a

Dial 'A' for automatic phone-rate hike


n the 2003 Legislature, lobbyists for the
telecommunications industry pulled a
fast one on consumers.
Using the same argument that fueled a
record increase in local telephone rates,
phone companies pushed through a bill that
will automatically raise rates 20 percent,
starting in 2007. Many legislators who voted
in favor of this bill now claim they did not
realize the language- had been added to the
legislation.
Some may remember how telephone
companies argued they needed to raise local
phone rates in order to fuel competition.
They offered a cut in long-distance rates in
return. Lawmakers jumped at the chance.
Now, arguing they need to foster more
competition in the wireless phone business,


lobbyists inserted an annual 20 percent
increase in local rates into a bill that passed
overwhelmingly. Sen. Mike Bennett, R-
Bradenton and Rep. Jeff Kottkamp, R-Cape
Coral, were among those who voted for this
bill.
Brad Ashwell, consumer advocate for the
Florida Public Interest Research Group,
pointed out how the costs can affect Florida
families who live on a budget which is al-
most all of us.
"If the current law stands," he told a state
consumer group, "those paying $12 or $15 a
month now for basic service could be paying
$60 a month 10 years from now."
Several groups are fighting this rate in-
crease, including the Consumer Federation
of the Southeast and Florida Common


Cause. AARP and the Florida Consumer
Action Group have also supported revisiting
the rate hike.
Suncoast Media Group, which owns the
Sun newspapers and DayStar Commun-
ications telephone system, would not be
affected by the raise in fees.
Walter Dartland, president of the CFSEF
and a former Florida deputy attorney gener-
al under Bob Butterworth, rails against the
increase in phone rates: "This bill is unusual
in that many senators believe the Public
Service Commission should be in charge of
rate increases, but the Legislature, when it
passed this bill, took that authority out of the
hands of the PSC."
Dartland pointed out that the PSC has
studied the fallout of the 2003 local rate


increase and says no reduction in long-dis-
tance rates has resulted. In fact, 11th District
Sen. Mike Fasano pointed out in a letter to
Sen. Lee Constantine that a federal court rul-
ing in 2003 pushed AT&T and MCI, among
others, to withdraw from local service com-
petition. They later merged with larger
incumbent companies.
Sen. Constantine is considering legislation
to kill the automatic rate increase, as is Rep.
Ken Littlefield, according to Dartland.
We believe telephone companies should
not be allowed to automatically increase
phone rates. They should go before the PSC
and justify each and every hike in fees they
request. And it should be the PSC that
decides what is fair that is, after all, its re-
sponsibility.

March 15 op-ed piece in your paper, suggested that Mr. Ed
Martin did not have sweat equity in Venice. I gathered that Mr.
Fishman felt that he, the CQG and members of several local
service organizations did have sweat equity and a just claim to
the city's political process (resident or not).
Mr. Vedder of your paper expressed a similar view in an edi-
torial of October 2005, He was quite specific in stating that the
Waterford Company principals were members of the CQG and
among a group that makes significant contributions to the bet-
terment of this community. To sharpen his point, Mr. Vedder
gratuitously named leaders of certain other community
groups as among those that did not give back much to the
community.
I gather some have a just claim to government decisions in
Venice, and some do not.
Well, I am new to Venice. Just passing through, actually. But
I have been around long enough to recognize a talking-point
put-down when I bump into it. Mr. Vedder, and now Mr.
Fishman, put into print what seems to be the CQG's way to dis-
credit opponents.
In my limited time here, I have seen lots of ordinary people
contributing to the betterment of Venice. The people I have
met tend to favor quality of life issues over profits. Those sin-
gled out in your paper as having earned political equity in the
city tend to favor business. That's fine.
But is equity so scarce in Venice that one group needs to
cheap shot the other?

It's nice to see articles that
balance out the political/me-

What's happening in the
world concerns each and

to consider both sides of
events in order to make up
our own minds, not have
them made up for us.

Twice now I have read that
someone inVenice feels "low-

of someone who opposes any
low-income housing in
Venice. Why do they think
only the wealthy have a right
to God's creation of beauty?
And if they feel so strongly
about this, why is it in the col-
umn where they can be
anonymous? Why not send a

Also, perhaps the feature
could be called "In my opin-

Being a Big Brother: Just being there was enough for him


BY GREG SHANIKA
GUEST COLUMNIST


Every once in awhile, if we
are lucky, life reminds us that
sometime, somewhere we
did something good.
I had that fortunate experi-
ence recently.
Nearly 20 years ago I vol-
unteered to be a "Big" with
Big Brothers Big Sisters. I felt
that I was missing something
by not having a child of my
own.
I admired and envied my
male friends and co-workers
who had children. They ex-
hibited a kind of maturity,
confidence and assurance I
felt I lacked. I envied the love
and affection exchanged so
freely between these fathers
and their children.
Most of all, I felt the need
to reach out to a youngster
just as several men who were
important in my life and
character development took
the time to care about me.
I must admit, I was afraid I
would not be up to the chal-
lenge. I couldn't think of


much that I could give to a
young boy.
I was never good at sports.
I still could not tell who's who
in football or baseball. My
older brother often reminded
me that I throw a baseball like
a girl; and kicking a soccer
ball while on a dead run was
absolutely impossible.
What's more, serious heart
problems practically elimi-
nated any strenuous activity.
What a disappointment I
would be to any young boy
matched with me, I thought.
But need and wanting com-
pelled me to give it a try any-
way.
, Joy Mahler, executive di-
rector of the local Big Bro-
thers Big Sisters organization,
assured me I would make a
fine Big and matched me with
Nick, a 9-year-old boy living
with his divorced mother and
younger brother.
In fact, Joy said she
thought Nick and I were a
near perfect match.
Nick has a Polish father; I
am Polish. We both have
facial characteristics general-


ly associated with Poles. Oh,
what the heck to be blunt,
we both have big ears, which
jut out from both sides of our
heads; prominent noses;
brown eyes; and ruddy com-
plexions.
We both also wore horri-
ble, thick, brown-plastic-rim-
med eyeglasses. (So much for
political correctness!)
What's more, people often
commented that Nick looked
like my son.
I was proud of that.
Nick and I were matched for
three years. We spent three to
four hours together nearly
every Saturday except for three
months during the summer
when he went to visit his
grandparents up North.
We went bowling. How-
ever, Nick seemed more
interested in the video arcade
at the bowling alley.
We went fishing. Nick
helped me care for my tropi-
cal fish aquariums, and we
did a few handicraft projects
in my home workshop.
We enjoyed several field
trips with other Bigs and Lit-


ties, such as a canoe float on
the Peace River and a day at
Wet & Wild in Tampa. But
mostly we just hung out
together.
We never had any of those
deep "father-and-son" type
conversations about life,
working hard and being a
success. We just hung out
together.
When Nick's mother an-
nounced that she was to re-
marry, I bowed out of the pic-
ture. I did not want to inter-
fere in the new family dynam-
ics.
Over the years I often won-
dered if I made any impres-
sion on Nick. Should I have
had some of those serious
talks with him about growing
up to be a responsible adult?
Did he really enjoy the time
we spent together? Where is
he now; and how is he doing?
All my questions were
answered recently when I
answered the telephone and
the voice on the other end of
the line said, "This is Nick. Do
you remember me?"
I could hardly believe my


ears. My heart leaped into my
throat and choked my voice.
The very next day Nick
came to my home and we
spent hours reminiscing and
getting reacquainted.
The shy 9-year-old boy is
now a husky, confident, suc-
cessful 30-year-old man.
It turns out that times were
not always so easy for Nick
after his mother remarried,
and he had to make his own
way and find his own success
and happiness.
He explained the rough
times he had, and how he
finally made up his mind to
hunker down and take charge
of his life.
I am so proud of him!
What still brings tears to
my eyes is that he said that I
was an inspiration to him
during these rough times.
He remembers the fishing
trips, the tropical fish and the
video arcade. He remembers
just hanging out together.
And you know what? That
was enough for him.
We didn't need to talk
sports, play soccer or have


any serious man-to-man
conversations. All we really
needed was to be together
and genuinely care about
each other.
In retrospect, I remember
that the four or five older men
who took the time to care
about me those individu-
als whom I owe so much -
did not try to impress me with
their sports knowledge or
ability.
They never took me aside
and for coaching or counsel-
ing. They were just friends.
They were very special, gen-
uinely caring men who show-
ed me how to be responsible
and contributing adult.
. They were, and still are, my
role models as I grew up and
grew older.
It's a great feeling knowing
that you may have done
something good for some-
one.
Pass it along.

Venice resident, a former vice
president of Venice Hospital

LET 'ER! HAVE IT! 'fi1&oa"J L-0'~;}K


Taking too long. I have a
comment to make about the
lack of completion of the
Pinebrook Road extension.
The persons in charge should
be ashamed of themselves for
having a project that's so
small take so long to finish.
This is the bypass for the
bypass and it needs to be
done last month. Why the
people in charge of this pro-
ject allowed the construction
company to have so many
days is beyond me. And if this


construction company's got
10 things going and nothing's
finished, well shame on them.
They should start one project
and hurry up and finish it,
then start another. This wait-
ing in traffic on 41 south-
bound at rush hour is just
totally unreasonable. Some-
body needs to look into this.
Keeping it green. I live in
Jacaranda West. We got a let-
ter from the homeowners
association stating they want-
ed us to water our lawns all


year long. They stated that if
we didn't have a sprinkler sys-
tem that we should bite the
bullet and install one and
either drill a well or hook up
to county water to operate it.
Some of us have the high
grass that browns in the win-
ter and greens in the summer.
Now they want us to water
it all year long. Both the coun-
ty and the state say do any-
thing you can to conserve
water, but the homeowners
association says don't pay any

quests and, in the case of John
Moore, insisting on better
management practices and
on full information for coun-
cil.
Obviously, the more fre-
quently the citizens are able
to elect new members (not-
withstanding the powerful
campaign-financing impact
of the Citizens for Quality
Government, which has dem-
onstrated a pro-growth orien-
tation,) the more opportuni-
ties for change, if the majority
of citizens desire it.
There is a second reason
not to stack the process
toward incumbency: The cur-
rent planning commission is
demonstrably pro-develop-
ment.

Weaver, who asked tough
questions of a shopping cen-
ter developer about traffic
changes before approval, was
the only negative vote. After
the vote, chair John Osmulski
seemed to feel he needed to
reassure the developer, who
had just won approval, that
he, Osmulski, thought it was
an attractive shopping mall.
Does that provide a clue to
why change might be neces-
sary?
The mayor appoints advi-
sory committees, including
the planning commission
and the airport advisory
board dominated by five
members with direct aviation
interests. While council has to
approve, I don't recall any de-
bates over candidates' qualifi-


cations in public meetings.
Limiting 'the terms as in
the present charter or even
better, by having the mayor
limited to two three-year
terms would seem to be a
step toward greater respon-
siveness by council and new
members of commissions.

County looking for a few good people


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Sarasota County will soon
mount a wide-range "person-
hunt" for citizen volunteers to
help in the acquisition of
much-needed land for neigh-
borhood parks.
People with expertise in
the environment and real
estate are particularly want-
ed, according to Kim Heu-
berger, supervisor, Parks and
Recreation, Beaches and Nat-
ural Areas.
She and other county staff
members from the county
attorney's office, Natural Re-
sources and the Environ-
mentally Sensitive Lands Pro-
tection Program have been
drafting a resolution to initi-
ate the search.
A countywide vote last


November approved a .25
mill ad valorem tax that will
raise about $250 million in
the next 10 years to acquire
such land. The referendum
added the creation of neigh-
borhood parks to an earlier
version that had as its sole
objective preserving environ-
mentally sensitive land.
Land parcels ranging from
8 acres (Pocono Trails in
Nokomis) to 22,000 acres (an
area east of Myakka State
Park) have been identified by
the board of county commis-
sioners as desirable purchas-
es in the next decade. To
process nominations of sites,
investigate them and negoti-
ate their purchase will require
more time and more people.
The three citizens who will
be selected will be added to
the Park and Recreation Ad-


visory Council. Grants, part-
nerships and other program
development arrangements
are among the responsibili-
ties of the land acquisition
team.
In 1992, the BCC appoint-
ed a group of citizens to
determine which tracts of
land in the county should be
protected from development.
Most of those on the original
list were large.
What became Curry Creek
Park was one. It was then
owned by three parties, each
of whom negotiated sale to
the county. A similar survey in
2005 identified desirable land
to be preserved.
The land acquisition pro-
cess is lengthy and compli-
cated. First, a prospective site
is nominated. Next, The Na-
ture Conservancy, a nation-


wide organization with a
Sarasota office, serving as the
county's agent, contacts the
landowner.
The agent obtains two in-
dependent appraisers, and
negotiates a price after the
site is thoroughly investigat-
ed.
The effort takes about
'eight weeks.
Edward H. Freeman of
TNC works closely through-
out the negotiations with
Brooke Elias, project scientist
in the natural resources sec-
tion of county Environmental
Services. If the negotiations
are successful, Freeman's or-
ganization and the owner
sign an option agreement to
buy. That dispatches survey-
ors and other land specialists
to the site to scrutinize the
land in a due diligence pro-


cess.
When Freeman, Elias and
her colleagues in the county
have agreed county criteria
have been met, the proposed
acquisition is forwarded to
the BCC for final approval.
A growing number of
nominations of larger tracts
of environmentally sensitive
land have found their way to
ESLOC since November's ref-
erendum. Those and an ordi-
nance passed last October to
add purchases of land for
neighborhood parks have put
pressure on the county. a
"Staffers are trying to catch
up, on the park side," Heu-
berger said.
If the volume of nomina-
tions continues to grow, the
BCC may consider employing
more than one agent, accord-
ing to Elias. The Nature Con-


servancy's contract expires
next September.
Each city in the county -
Venice, Sarasota and North
Port is represented on the
Parks and Recreation Advis-
ory Council. There are three
at-large members, currently
from Osprey, Venice and
Siesta Key, and a student
trained in the Students Taking
Active Roles in Sarasota
County program.
If you are interested in
applying for one of the posi-
tions, call 861-9831. Or go to
scgov.net on your computer,
and click on the link for advi-
sory boards to locate an
application. Or you can fol-

fill vacancies in its weekly cal-
endar advertised in area
newspapers.


Reds stadium plan gets official support


Commissioners brainstorm housing incentives


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


The concept of converting
the existing spring training
home of the Cincinnati Reds
into public ball fields and
relocating the team to the
current fairgrounds site in
Sarasota received the unani-
mous support of Sarasota city
and county commissioners
Friday.
The two boards agreed to
move forward with exploring
options of building a new
facility for the Reds and di-
rected staff to come up with
cost estimates for a multi-
faceted project.
Ed Smith Stadium on Tut-
tie Avenue would get im-
provements and become a
community youth facility.
The idea also includes build-
ing an affordable housing
,, project at the site.
Any new spring, training
facility is expected to be built
on the site of the current
Sarasota County Fairgrounds.
Robarts Arena also would
either be replaced or rehabili-
tated to create a formal com-
munity events center.
Deputy City Administrator
V Peter Schneider said the
broader project had four
objectives:
To maintain the econom-
ic impact of $25 million-$40
million per year generated by
the Reds.
To increase the supply of
affordable housing.
To create a multi-use


community recreation center.
To increase emergency
shelter capacity.
County Administrator Jim
Ley said all ideas were in the
concept stage only.
"To make any one of these
ideas come together, we are
going to have many new dis-
cussions," Ley said.
'Grand plan'
City Administrator Mi-
chael McNees
said the con-
cept makes
sense, espe-
'- ^ cially in rela-
tion to the
future of the
fairgrounds.
County
Commission
Ley Chair David
Mills called
the concept a "grand plan,"
.and said.retaining theReds in
Sarasota was very important.
The Reds have been in Sara-
sota for 20 years.
Mills added that the idea of
creating up to 200 units of
affordable housing adds to
the plan.
"I also like the concept of
creating the recreational facil-
ity," he added. "We have the
Englewood Sports Complex,
and I don't know if you have
all been there, it is a phenom-
enal facility and I would love
to have something along this
nature in North County."
Mills did express his con-
cern about the future of the
fairgrounds. He sits on the fair


board and said he believes
there is room in the city for
the facility.
Ley said the first conversa-
tion will be with the fair-
grounds board, since its fu-
ture is the linchpin to the en-
tire concept.
$150 million?
The fairgrounds has con-
sidered relocating to a spot
south of Clark Road, but those
plans are contingent on many
factors.
County Commissioner Jon
Thaxton said he was con-
cerned that the fairgrounds
was being considered as an
afterthought.
Each of the city commis-
sioners supported the idea of
moving forward on the Reds
complex.
Vice Mayor Fredd Atkins
said the concept addressed all
of the needs of the city.'
"'Mayor Mary Anne Servian
said this was a huge commu-
nity investment.
The estimated price tag for
the entire project could reach
$150 million, with the com-
munity seeking $15 million
from the state for the new
Reds facility.
Ley said once the fair-
grounds issues were resolved,
the plan is to create a detailed
financial master plan.
Ley said a formal proposal
could come back within a few
months.

The challenges of creating
a policy that encourages
developers to build affordable
housing was at the heart of an
informal exercise Friday.
Sarasota County commis-
sioners, members of a com-
munity housing policy com-
mittee, community members
and county staff sat in small
groups to take on the per-
spective of developers at the
Community Foundation of
Saraso La.
County Community Hous-
ing Manager Wendy Thomas
coordinated the session in
hopes of giving the commis-
sioners a better idea about the
process.
"We want them to come
out of here with a better
understanding of what the
obstacles are," Thomas said.
-She said .she was encour,
aged by the questions the
board members were asking
within their own groups,
since each comes at the prob-
lem from a different perspec-
tive.
Community housing, more
commonly known as afford-
able housing, is defined as
housing people who earn the
median income in the area
can afford. This is generally
defined as housing that costs
less than $200,000.
County Administrator Jim
Ley said his idea for the gath-
ering was for county staff and

the board to work through the
challenges of integrating
affordable housing into the
way each department and the
entire county does business.
The reason for this is that
each potential affordable
housing ordinance would
have a ripple effect through-
out county government, such
as transportation, utilities
and planning and develop-
ment.
Challenges
Each group of six or so
used a hypothetical piece of
property and tried to design a
plan that would create an
optimal number of units and
still have space for affordable
housing. They had to do all of
this within the existing and
proposed policies of the com-
munity.
"We want to show you the
challenges of jmplprenting.,
,policy, decisions," Leysaidl ,
After about 90 minutes,
each group offered ideas for
their hypothetical project.
Each of the five groups
expressed their troubles with
completing a project with the
high cost for land and the
requirements for stormwater
management. One incentive
for developers could be an
expedited process for permit-


ting, one developer said.
"The purpose of this was to
explore some of the chal-
lenges to listen, learn and
educate," Thomas said. "This
shows your true commitment
to affordable housing."
Her group is working to
develop an ordinance and
will be holding two more
meetings before it requests
advertising for formal public
hearings.
Those meetings will create
an ordinance designed to
encourage developers to
include affordable housing in
any developments.

Cook third

at Senior

Nationals

What a great way for
Jeremie Cook to end his high
school wrestling career.
Cook, the Venice High
senior who had back-to-back
unbeaten state champion-.
ship seasons for the Green
and White, closed out his
high school career by partici-
pating in the National High
School Coaches Association's
Senior Nationals held over
the weekend at the Peterson
Center in Pittsburgh, Pa.
Cook ended up winning
six of seven bouts and plac-
ing third at 189 pounds.
The Senior Nationals en-
compass the top scholastic
seniors from across the
USA.
Cook took third place by
winning the consolation
final, 3-2, over Nate Willard of
California. Cook won via tie-
breaker format.
Other consy wins for Cook
included a 5-4 decision over
Dusty Iverson of Minnesota
and 5-1 over Matt Panasevich
of Pennsylvania.
Cook won his opening
match, 7-2, over Steve Loomis
out of New York. He then
scored a 15-7_major decision
over Tim Jones of Ohio. An
8-3 victory over Shane Miller
of Nevada put Cook in the
quarterfinals. He lost there,
8-5, to Travis Stem out of
Pennsylvania.

Brad Allen is making quite
a splash during spring foot-
ball practice at Vanderbilt
University. The former Venice
High standout will be a
sopho-more this fall for the
Commodores.
He is expected to take
over the starting tight end
position left by the gradu-
atiuon Dustin Dunning, who
had quite a career in Nash-
ville.
Allen, 6-4 and 240 pounds,
has had a super spring so far.
Head coach Bobby Johnson
awarded Allen a golf jersey
for his outstanding efforts in
practice Monday.

Just about a year ago, a
super guy named Dave
Cherry was the display ad-
vertising manager at the
Gondolier Sun. He talked of
his son Scott playing under
Dean Smith at North Caro-
lina. He told of Scott staying
in basketball as a coach,
catching on as an assistant
at George Mason.
Well, look at George Ma-
son now. The Patriots are in
the Final 4 and the darlings
of the country.
We know Dave has got to
be super excited. Good luck,
and let's go George Mason.

the University of Miami and
meet their coach. It helps us
bond as a team. We're trying

Miller, who allowed three hits
and struck out 10 in six

ing five hits and two earned


runs over five innings of work.
He was relieved by Ryan
Anderson, who allowed one
hit over two innings.

bats of Brett Holte, Joe Sal-
omone and Pete Hernandez.

In the game of golf, to
misquote a famous quote,
there are rumors and there
are damned lies.
But for those who play
the Venice East Golf Club, a
mixture of fact and fiction
has recently become an
everyday reality.
So let's put the record
straight.
The course isn't closing ...
yet.
That's the official word
from Frank Mack, the club's
reigning president. Tired with
talk about an imminent
departure from the Venice
golf scene, late last week
Mack was at pains to explain
the reality of Venice East's
current modus operandi.
Yes, the 52-acre club is up
for sale, he says, however, he's
adamant you won't be seeing
any condos on its Highway
41 site for quite some time.
"We actually didn't put the
course up for sale," he says.
"But we had an offer for $5
million about 18 months ago.
The board felt that was in-
adequate, so it was rejected."
By then, though, it was too
late to stop the rumor mill
rolling out the bones, hence
the confusion about the

club's present status.
Mack goes on, 'After the
initial bid the word got out
and offers came flooding in.
Then, of course, people be-
gan phoning and coming
into the clubhouse asking,
'When are you closing? I
can't believe you're closing.'
The fact is, we're not closing.
Our members have simply
decided to sell, that's all. We're
still the best value golf course
in the area and will be for a
long time."
As a non-profit organiza-
tion, the cozy club has always
had its admirers and detrac-
tors in equal measure and
Mack is aware of the conse-
quences of potentially letting
the club go. "We have a great
mix of people who play this
course," he says. "They're
gonna miss it. I feel sorry
for them, I really do."
But the offers kept coming
in. Eventually, $12 million
became the asking price,
and last January the club's
membership voted 154-79 to
finally sell-up.
However off-loading a golf
course isn't easy as Mack, and
the other 249 certificate hold-
ers who own the course, dis-
covered when the club's attor-
ney Geoffrey Pflugner of
Icard, Merrill in Sarasota, put
two. and two together and
found the sums weren't
adding up.
"It was decided because of
income taxes and other fi-
nancial liabilities we had to
increase the price in order to
make it a done deal. We had
to get more it was that
clear cut. So the price rose to
just over $17 million in order
to meet everyone's expecta-
tions."

fortunate few who stumped
up just over $1,500 two
decades ago and now look
set to cash in big time. It's
said that those who first dug
out their wallets in the '80s
look set to make a $50,000
windfall. In other words, ap-
proximately $250,000 per
acre. That figure, according
to Pflugner puts the course
firmly in the top 10 percent
of land values in the last five
years.
Inevitably, Mack has his
reservations concerning the
past year's events. Time is
simply running out.
"It will be a sad day if the
club goes, but ultimately
nothing has been decided.
We're still in negotiations and
if we don't get what the mem-
bers want then we won't sell
- simple as that. But let's
face it, executive-type clubs
like ours are on prime real
estate and the available
ground in Venice and sur-
rounding areas is becoming
scarce. I'm not leaning either
way. I'm stuck between a
rock and a hard place, but the
club is going in a certain
direction it's both in-
evitable and good fortune
for the members."
Don't pack away your
clubs yet, though. There's
more to come.
"I want to make it ab-
solutely clear Venice East is
still open," Mack says. "We
could find a suitable buyer
tomorrow, but it would still
take 12 months before Ven-
ice East witnesses its last tee
shot. It's a great course and I
want everyone to continue to
play here as long as they can."'

Van Wezel fate could be decided by poll


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


A regional poll could deter-
mine whether a new perform-
ing arts center is built in
Sarasota.
The question before elect-
ed officials last week was who
should decide whether a
replacement is needed for the
Van Wezel Performing Arts
Hall, situated off Sarasota Bay
in the city.
Sarasota County commis-
sioners want the poll to in-
clude people from through-
out the county, not just
people in the performing arts
community.
After a heated discussion
during their joint meeting
with Sarasota city commis-
sioners, the county board
agreed to pay for half of the
study.
Van Wezel Executive Di-
rector John Wilkes said the
main purpose was to see
whether a larger hall is need-
ed.
The city wants the study as
part of its Cultural District
Master Plan, and it will help
develop a plan for upgrading
or replacing the current hall,
which has a capacity of 1,700.
It is believed a new hall would
need 2,600 seats.
While Wilkes said the study
will look at growth throughout
the entire county, the basic
premise is to focus on the
greater Sarasota area.
County Commissioner
Shannon Staub said the study

Sarasota County and the city of Sarasota have agreed to fund a survey to measure public sentiment for replacing the Van Wezel
Performing Arts Hall.


should include a "community
needs assessment" aspect.
She was also concerned
that the survey would focus
on interviewing people who
already have a vested interest,
such as people who attend


events at the facility regularly,
possible skewing any results.
"It is going to be paid for
by people in North Port and
Englewood, and I want to
know if half of them will like
it if their tax dollars are being


spent in the city," Staub said.
She said she wanted those
questions answered before
anyone committed $100 mil-
lion to a new facility.
County Commission Chair
David Mills said he was sick


of studying things, and wasn't
sure a study was necessary.

Second hall?
County Commissioner
Nora.Patterson also express-
ed concern about support-


ing the study. She also said
spending $35,000 on a study
could make the public as-
sume the county would fully
support paying for a new
facility.
City commissioners were
willing to take up the full
$70,000 cost of the study if
the county commissioners
wanted to put too many con-
ditions on it.
The county officials unani-
mously agreed to a motion
by Staub to do the survey in
two phases. The first phase
would poll the public to de-
termine if there is any sup-
port for a hall and also where
it would go.
Staub also said she won-
dered if people would want
the hall more centrally locat-
ed in the county.
Patterson agreed to the
motion but admitted she
would be against putting the
hall anywhere but in down-
town Sarasota.
Staub said she thought a
second, small performing,
arts hall could be warranted,
given the growth in South
County.
Once the first phase is
completed, county commis-
sioners are to review the
results before creating a
business plan for replace-
ment or upgrades.
The city commissioners
unanimously approved a sim-
ilar motion.

Jumping for the joy of it, again and again


To Tom Stella, skydiving is a stress buster,
a way to overcome fear and
'an absolute triumph of the soul.'


BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
NORTH PORT EDITOR
Tucked inside a warehouse
in the outskirts of Lakeland,
you can hear echoes of small
airplanes taking off and land-
ing about every 30 minutes
on weekends.
Rows of parachutes line
the warehouse floor in front
of a plane hidden by a giant,
colorful parachute. Nearby is
an old TV used to show tan-
dem jumpers just how large
their eyeballs bulged when
they jumped for the first time
from 14,000 feet.
"You're not going to die,"
says Tom Stella. "It's not a
perfectly good airplane. Even
big airplanes have some duct
tape on them. There's no
such thing as a perfectly
good airplane."
It's a wonder he still has to
repeat these facts, especially
after recently accomplishing
his 100th jump at Skydive
Tampa Bay.
The only hazard the North
Port Police detective faced
following his 100th jump was
a celebratory pie in the face.
After 100 jumps from alti-
tudes of 14,000 feet and
higher, Stella says there's a
huge difference today from
his first jump, on Oct. 1,
2000.
"I was more anxious than
anything, which was over-
whelming at first," said Stella.
"Of course, you have fear and
nervousness. But once you do
it, you know why you want to
jump again.
"I don't consider myself an
adrenaline junkie needing a
fix. I think skydiving is an
absolute triumph of the soul;
it's a way to overcome your
fears. For me, it's a way to


relieve stress."
Although the setting is
social, Tampa SkyDive em-
ployees are doing their jobs:
packing chutes, creating sky-
dive videos and encouraging
new tandem divers.
Cliff and Lori Dobson, own-
ers, work together scheduling
tandem jumps between "fun"
jumpers such as Stella and
his other skydive buddies,
whom he considers his ex-
tended family.
"We take great pride in
our unbeatable safety rec-
ord," Cliff Dobson said, add-
ing he employs only the best,
most experienced instructors
licensed by the United States
Parachute Association.
Many of his staff have
earned numerous national
and international champi-
onship titles as well as setting
multiple world records.
The pair up there
After completing eight tan-
dem freefall jumps strapped
to a master instructor, Stella
was allowed to begin acceler-
ated freefall training. Today,
he enjoys jumping from the
plane and falling head first
for 30 to 40 seconds before
preparing to land safely and
most often on his feet.
"Society thinks skydiving is
a dangerous and reckless
sport," says Stella, who some-
times jumps in a sports coat
and tie. "Fact is, skydivers are
trained, licensed and certified.
We don't take safety light-
heartedly.
"In most cases, reckless or
unsafe skydivers are shunned
from many skydive munici-
palities. They are the ones
(who) create a bad name for
us. Cliff would not hesitate to
ground someone for r6ckless'-


ness."
In all his 100 dives, the 30-
year-old only considers two a
little shaky. On one, his 87th
jump, he recalls scraping too
close to the airplane door as
he exited the plane, damag-
ing a small piece of his gear.
It caused him to use his
reserve canopy, which he
says "did exactly what it's
made to do."
Stella has never suffered
any broken bones or other
problems from skydiving.
"I face more challenges
driving to work sometimes,"
Stella joked. "Skydiving is no
different from the enjoyment
of riding a motorcycle or a
speedboat."
Jumper wannabe
At Skydive Tampa, certified
riggers pack the parachutes,
while others teach new
jumpers sometimes as old
as 96 how to' keep their
chin up while in the air,
especially while being video-
taped by a professional sky-
diver who is literally an arm's
length in front of them as
they are falling about 120
mph. This allows the camera
to capture the first 30 seconds
of the tandem experience.
The amazed jumpers try
to remember everything in
the five-minute lesson about
chin up, arms crossed; then,
leading with the hips, they
stand at the edge of the air-
plane door and then just
jump and scream. Instantly,
it's OK to outstretch their
arms, kick back their feet and
enjoy the fall.
The basics came back to
Stella in 2004, after leaving
the sport for several years to
fund a higher priority.
"My daughter's college
tuition is paid off," Stella said.
"Now I'm back.
"Patricia, who is 4, helps
me pack my parachute. She
wants a small one for her
birthday but I.told .her shd


has to wait."
Open door
Having a small child and
being a police officer prompt-
ed Stella to want his 100th
jump to be memorable and
meaningful. The Missing and
Exploited Children support-
ed his jump by sending 13
shirts advertising 1-800-THE-
LOST.
Last weekend, Dobson
shut down all tandem jumps
for Stella's 100th. Stella gave
shirts to 12 fellow skydivers.
He asked them.to join him
in a circle in the air that
would be videotaped by his
good friend Mike Swain,
who has been skydiving for
43 years.
Inside that circle were
divers with experience rang-
ing from 100 to 6,000 jumps.
The group practiced once on
land and then boarded the
plane.
Just moments into the
jump, one of the diver's late
arrival created a small prob-
lem with the circle. Cameras
captured the group as they
joined arms before all safely
landing.
"It was the most fun, worst
jump I've ever done," said
Pam Kirk, who has more
than 600 skydives. She
thanked Stella for allowing
her to be a part of his 100th
jump.
"It's a great way of seeing
what the creator sees," Stella
said. "If I don't get three jumps
in each time I
skydive, I feel like I got to
jump off something like the
Skyway Bridge on the way
home.
"I'm not going to stop
skydiving; you know why?
Because someone keeps
leaving the airplane door
open."

H AY (; A L u I:









ere's a word to add to your vocabulary: hospitalists. The concept of
having in-hospital doctors dedicated to seeing admitted patients
and working in concert with primary care physicians (PCP) has taken
hold on a national level.
At Venice Regional Medical Center we are proud
to bring, this important advance in patient care to
you with our staff of five hospitalists--doc- \
tors Aguila, Martinez, Rodgers, and Sears,
and ARNP Kathryn Kater. Available all
day, every day, they fill a very specific
and real need for acutely ill patients
and their families. Having on-stai
doctors who dovetail their care of
inpatients with that of the PCP 7
ensures a higher level of coordination,
communication, and thus, treatment.
It is like having your own, familiar doctor
available to you for the duration of your hospi-
talization. Everyone involved benefits and patient
and family members alike are assured of up to the
minute information and prompt answers to
pressing questions.
Because hospitalists are present on a daily basis,
and totally involved with patient care from admission to release, there
is improved flow of vital information between all the professionals
involved in a case. The whole process is enhanced by the increased inter-
action and the more informed each participant is, the more the patient
ultimately benefits.

0., I I;,./,Iit, d a / -fin

Zenobia Aguila, M.D. joined our hospitalist staff in December 2005 and
completed his internship and residency in Internal Medicine at Cleveland
Clinic Florida, Weston, FL.

A Venice Regional Medical Center staff physician since October 1997,
Manuel A. Martinez, M.D., became part of our hospitalist program in
2005 and comes to us from the University of Alabama Hospitals.

James J. Rodgers, D.O. was our first hospitalist and has been a Venice
Regional Medical Center physician since 2001. He is a former flight sur-
geon and chief of Internal Medicine at MacDill Air Force base.

R. Mark Sears, M.D., has been a member of VRMC's hospitalist team
since 2002. He is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma College of
Medicine in Oklahoma City.

Kathryn M. Kater, ARNP, joined our staff in 2003. She is a 1986 gradu-
ate of the St. Louis University School of Medicine.

Things to Remember

Hospitalists are thoroughly familiar with our hospital and staff
* The hospitalist is always available
* Hospitalists are trained to deal with complications immediately
* The hospitalist knows every specialist and department of VRMC
* They ensure timely, considerate, knowledgeable responses in critical,
stressful times

Consistent, quality medical care is
vital to keeping tissue healthy in

Works by

the late

Ilse Kern

showcased

A gremlin crept into my
Sunday article on the Gurl &
Girl concert for the Venice
Symphony and had the cor-
rect day but the wrong date.
The concert will be Thursday,
March 30, at the Church of the
Nazarene. For tickets and
other information, call 484-
1773 or 497-1500.
Sorry for the confusion,
but glad to knowyou are read-
ing the paper so carefully.
Before the concert
Thursday, be sure to check
out this special show.
March 30, before the Gurl
& Girl event, fine-art paint-
ings and books by the late Ilse
Kern will be featured in spe-
cial exhibit in association with
the Spring 2006 Art Exhibition
in the Community Room of
the Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice, 601
South Tamiami Trail inVenice.
The event is free and open to
the public.
Kern's work was well
known locally for her depic-
tions of the historic sites and
buildings of Venice but she
also was an accomplished
painter of wild life and florals.
She also had completed many
paintings of German scenes
and buildings from her native
Germany and the family
home in Connecticut, where
she lived with her husband
Gunther after arriving in the
United States in 1954.
Some of the German paint-
ings were used to illustrate
her first book, "Looking
Back," which was published
just two years before her July
2005 death. That work was
followed by "Talking Eyes,
True Animal Stories," which
contained some of.her animal
paintings as well as pho-
tographs. The cover photo
was taken by then Gondolier
Sun photographer George
McGinn.
Kern and her work often
were featured in the pages of
the Venice Gondolier Sun. A
collage of her work was used
as the cover of a Gondolier
Sun calendar some years
back.
In addition to Kern's works,
the Spring 2006 exhibition
will include a variety of works
by members of the Venice Art
Center, Englewood Art
Center, North Port Area Art
Guild, Women Contemporary
Artists, the Sarasota Chapter
of the Embroiderers Guild of
America and others. For more
information on the show, call
486-4600.
The afternoon of March 30,
Leif Bjaland, principal con-
ductor and artistic director,
Florida West Coast
Symphony, will be the fea-
tured guest on the Cliff Roles
show, Talk of the Suncoast on
1220 AM, WIBQ, 2-3 p.m.

Tracing




the roots




of College




Club


STORY BY KIM COOL FEATURES EDITOR
ost-war Venice was a blossom waiting to
burst into bloom.
It was in the decade of the 50s that
Venice Hospital, the Venice Yacht Club, the Venice
Little Theatre and the Venice Art Center were
founded, Venice Gardens was begun and the
South Venice Civic Association was formed.
Also in its fifth decade is the College Club of the
Venice Area, currently presided over by Kathy
Cellura, a lady of boundless energy and enthusi-
asm for the city, the arts and especially for the
club.


"Collectively and individu-
ally our membership repre-
sents a plethora of accom-
plishments and talents,"
Cellura said as she introduced
the theme of her term as club
president appreciation.
"Let's see how many different
ways we can express or
demonstrate appreciation ...
to esteem, to treasure, to
respect, to value, to admire, to
delight in, to enjoy."
Cellura is the latest in a
string of high-energy women
who have headed the College
Club since its birth in 1959.
The list reads like a Who's
Who ofVenice beginning with
its first president, Mrs. Evert
L. Perkins. Perkins was fol-
lowed by the energetic Lucie
Halifax who would later serve
on the Venice City Council
and on numerous other
boards and committees.
Peggy Isphording's name is
on the list as president in
1967-68. With her lawyer hus-
band Roger, she has been all
over the world and only
recently returned from yet
another trek to Alaska to wit-
ness one of the great dog sled
races there.
It is interesting to note that
Perkins, the founding presi-
dent, had been president of
the American Association of
I -' 1 f ,;, ' a s. k mkt ,, .


University Women of Miami.
Both the College Club and
AAUW are designed for col-
lege and university graduates,
although the AAUW has taken
more of a political direction,
while the College Club's mis-
sion from its inception has
been "the encouragement of
potential college students
with information concerning
scholarships and necessary
requirements for entrance..."
The mission of the AAUW, as
stated on its Web site, is to
promote "equity for all
women and girls, lifelong
education, and positive soci-
etal change."
The first meetings of the
College Club were scheduled
for the first Tuesday of the
month at the old Fisherman's
Wharf Restaurant just north
of Hatchett Creek.
Educational topics were the
theme of the luncheon meet-
ings and the speaker at the
second meeting was Dr.
Wiley, a human resources
director for the Sarasota
County School Board. His
topic, presented at the club's
third meeting, was the future
plans of college preparatory
programs in the secondary
schools curriculum. Carl C.
Strode was the superinten-
dent of schools that year.

To get the information to
students in the area, College
Club members held events
such as a "Coke" party for the
senior girls in the Venice High
School cafeteria. College stu-

their experiences with the
seniors.

This so head is a real hard sell or advertisers


DAVE BARRY
." ," I '


EDITOR'S NOTE: This c
Dave Barry column was or
published Sept. 15, 1996.

So I turned on r
radio, and the first
heard was the Shouti
Dealership Jerk. You ki
one I mean. He sour
this: "BELOW DEALER
MAX SNOTWICK
DODGE ISUZU CHEVY
NISSAN STUDEBAKE
OTA IS SELLING C!
BELOW DEALER
WE'RE LOSING MON
THESE CARS! WE Hi
MAKE ROOM FOR
CARS! SO WE CAN
MORE MONEY! WE
PROCESSED CHEES
BRAINS! THAT'S WHY
SELLING CARS FOR ]
DEALER...."
I immediately did
always do when the S1
Car-Dealership Jerk
on: I changed the st


will listen to anything -
including Morse code, static
and the song 'A Horse With
No Name" before I will lis-
ten to those commercials,
and I think most people feel
the same way. So the question
is: Why are they on the air?
Why are car dealerships pay-
-- -- -- ing good money for commer-
cials that people hate? My
theory is that these commer-
T cials are not paid for by car
dealerships; they're paid for
classic by competing radio stations,
li who hope you'll switch to
iginally them.
I developed a similar theo-
ry years ago to explain the
my car infamous "ring around the
thing I collar" TV commercials for
ng Car Wisk. Remember those? They
ndsow the always featured a Concerned
Ds like Housewife who tried and
COST! tried to get her husband's col-
FORD lars clean, but when her hus-
ROLET band, who apparently did not
R TOY- wash his neck, would put on a
ORS AT shirt, people would point out
COST! that his collar was dirty.
4EY ON You'd think he'd have
AVE TO punched them in the mouth,
MORE but instead he just looked
LOAVE chagrined, and these
FAEOR extremely irritating voices-
WE FOR voices that would kill a labo-
WE'RE ratory rat in seconds-would
shriek: "RING AROUND THE
what I COLLAR! RING AROUND
wat I THE COLLAR!" And the
outing Concerned Housewife would
comes be so embarrassed that the
action. I only thing preventing her


from lying down right on her
kitchen floor and slashing her
wrists was the fear that the
paramedics might notice that
she had waxy yellow buildup.
There was a time when the
"ring around the collar" cam-
paign was arguably the single
most detested aspect of
American culture. Many peo-
ple swore that, because of
those commercials, they
would not purchase Wisk if it
were the last detergent on
Earth. Yet the commercials
stayed on the air for years.
Because somebody was buy-
ing Wisk. The question is:
Who?
My theory is that it was the
Soviet Union. These ads ran
during the height of the Cold
War, when the Soviets would
stop at nothing to destroy
America. I believe they sent
agents over here with the mis-
sion of purchasing huge
quantities of Wisk; this con-
vinced the Wisk manufactur-
ers that the "ring around the
collar" campaign was work-
ing, so they kept it on the air,
thereby causing millions of
Americans to conclude that
they lived in a nation of com-
plete idiots, and thus to
become depressed and alien-
ated.
I believe that virtually all
the negative developments of
the '60s and '70s-riots,
protests, crime, drug use,
"The Gong Show"-were relat-


ed, directly or indirectly, to
Wisk commercials. I also
believe that to this day, some-
where in the former Soviet
Union, there are giant hidden
underground caverns con-
taining millions of bottles of
Wisk.
I'll tell you another kind of
ad I hate: The ones where
they give you information
that could never be of any
conceivable use to you. For
example, there was a series of
ads for some giant chemical
company, I forget which one,
where they'd show you, say, a
family watching television,
and the announcer would say
something like: "We don't
make televisions. And we
don't make the little plastic
things that hold the wires
inside the televisions. We
make the machines that
stamp the numbers on the lit-
tle plastic things that hold the
wires inside the televisions."
When I saw those ads, I want-
ed to scream: WHY ARE YOU
PAYING MILLIONS OF DOL-
LARS TO TELL ME THIS?
WHAT DOYOUWANT METO
DO? I also do not care for: -
Any ad featuring a demon-
stration of a product absorb-
ing an intimate bodily fluid.
Any ad where a singer
sings with deep emotion
about something nobody
could possibly feel deeply
emotional about, such as cot-
ton, Hoover vacuum cleaners

What action do you take'?
A If you play negative doubles, you
have the perfect hand for this action
- should partner rebid two clubs,
you can afford to bid two hearts. If
that weapon is not in your armory,
you have no safe bid. If you bid two
hearts and partner rebids three clubs,
what now? Pass.
Q 2 As South vulnerable, you

Partner opens the bidding with one
heart. What do you respond?
A This is the perfect holding for a
jump shift to two spades a strong
hand with a good five-card suit and
excellent support for opener's suit. If
this hand does not measure up to your
values for a jump shift, we would opt
for a splinter bid of four clubs. If you
don't use splinter bids, you must bid
one spade and then jump in hearts at
your next turn.

ienist's slip causes problems with dentist


DEAR ABBY


DEAR ABBY: I have been see-
ing the same dentist for more
than 20 years and have been


very satisfied. During an earlier
checkup, I had been told I had a
loose tooth, "but it could tighten
up again." I checked the tooth
the morning of my most recent
visit, and it was fine.
After cleaning my teeth, the
hygienist, "Sue," was polishing
my teeth when the tool slipped
and the metal part hit the
"loose" tooth really hard. Sue
said, "Oh, sorry!"
When "Dr. Smith" came in
for the final check, he said I had
a cracked tooth. It was the same
tooth. I had not seen a crack that
morning, but thought I'd check


it again when I got home. There
is a big crack across the front of
the tooth. If it had been there
that morning, I'd have seen it.
I am sure the "hit" cracked
the tooth. Only Sue and I know
for sure, and Iwouldn'tknowifit
hadn't been for the fact that I'd
been watching it because it was
loose.
Should I talk to Sue or to Dr.
Smith or to both of them about
this? Should I just get the tooth
fixed and forget it? Or should I
start hunting for a new dentist?
- DENTAL DILEMMA IN DEN-
VER


DEAR DILEMMA: When Dr.
Smith told you your tooth was
cracked, you should have spo-
ken up then and asked to see it
while you were still in his office.
However, because you did not,
it's time to call Dr. Smith and tell
him what you have told me. I
am sure he will want to talk to
his hygienist about what hap-
pened. (Actually, she should
have already informed him.) If
the cracked toothwas caused by
his employee, it should be fixed
without charge. And if it isn't,
THEN you should start looking
for another dentist


DEAR ABBY: I know that a
GED is equivalent to a high
school degree; however, is it
misleading to indicate on a
resume, for example-thatyou
graduated from high school
when you obtained a GED after
the fact? WONDERING IN
KEARNS, UTAH
DEAR WONDERING: Not only
is it misleading, it would be a
mistake. Many businesses do
background checks on job
applicants, and when it turns
out that an applicant lied on his
or her resume, they are rejected.
Honesty is the best policy.

A Before you bid, consider what
you will do next. Suppose that, over
your one spade, partner rebids one no
trump. What now? Aren't you better
off raising to two hearts immediate-
ly? Yes,,you are!

The bidding has proceeded:

What do you bid now?
A You have a balanced hand of 18
points, enough for a jump to two no
trump. Even if your no-trump range
is 16-18, we would make the same
rebid since we think the hand is cer-
tainly worth 19-plus points because
of its good five-card suit.

What do you bid now?
A The auction has turned a fair hand
into near powerhouse. If you play
splinter bids, by all means pinpoint
your club shortage by jumping to
four clubs. If not, we think this hand
is too strong for a jump to four hearts,
and we would start with a cue-bid of
two spades.

Manly men wear running tights


J.J. Andrews
BACK OF THE PACK

Spider-Man was my
favorite superhero, with
Wolverine and the whole X-
Men line of comics coming in
a close second.
I think of this every time I
go running on a day like
Monday.
Those aren't tights I'm
wearing. It's my superhero
outfit.
The residual affects of
being raised in a testos-
terone-driven environment
surface from time-to-time.
There was much grunting
and chest-pounding when
the Pittsburgh Steelers won
the Super Bowl, and angry


scowls every year the Chicago
Cubs fall flat on their faces.
Most of the time I can hide
this from The Fiancee, who is
definitely the artistic and cul-
tured side of this relationship.
Whenever she witnesses my
manliness displays, she
makes a face, with one eye-
brow raised over the other,
that asks, "Do I really want to
marry this person?"
So on a morning like
Monday when the Weather
Channel says it's 45 degrees,
but it feels much colder, I
become Spider-Man instead
of a man in tights.
Thankfully, she doesn't see
me running around the
apartment wearing my blue
superhero pants as I make
web-shooting, Spider-Man
poses before joining everyone
at the Venice Runners Group
for our morning jog.
And before writing this
weekly confessional, none of
my running friends knew
this, either.
Dress appropriately
The issue of dressing
warmly rarely comes up in


Florida. This winter has
seemed exceptionally mild, at
least to me, and I have
donned the superhero tights
only a few times.
And nearly every time I
have felt guilty. Hat, long-
sleeve shirt, running tights
and more simply because it's
in the low 40s. My former
high school cross country
coach who believed run-
ning in shorts and a tank top
during cold spells improved
performance would laugh
if he saw how quickly my
Ohio-born blood has thinned
out.
Overdressing in the cold
can be a problem. Runners
put on layer after layer and
wind up overheating and
then becoming cold because
their clothes are soaked with
sweat.
Our cold spell is most like-
ly over, at least until next win-
ter, but here are some basic
tips taken from Jeff Galloway's
book, "Marathon."
Dress using layers of
clothing with breathable
materials like Cool-Max gar-
ments closest to your body.


This will help lift perspiration
away.
Give yourself time to
warm up, usually about a
mile. Feeling perfectly com-
fortable at the start of a run
most likely means you'll be
sweating quite a bit within
the first mile.
Clothing thermometer -
50-59 degrees, T-shirt and
shorts; 40-49, long-sleeved T-
shirt, shorts or tights or wind
pants, mittens or gloves; 30-
39, same as previous, plus
another T-shirt and a hat cov-
ering your ears; 20-29, same
as previous except it should
be a thick long-sleeved shirt.
We won't delve into the
sub-20 degree clothing sug-
gestions. That reminds me
too much of my days living up
north.
Should the temperature
here ever dip below 20, that's
a definite sign to take the day
off- from everything!

Run for the scrub jays

















COURTESY PHOTO
Runners of all ages race off at the start of the Scrub
Jay 5K held at Oscar Scherer State Park, Osprey, on
Feb. 18. The race raised money for The Friends of
Oscar Scherer Park, Inc. Lee Wetherington Companies
donated $23,750 to group. The check is the final pay-
ment of a three-year, $65,750 pledge that Lee
Wetherington Companies made. The proceeds of the
annual race help to develop and maintain habitat
within the Park for the threatened Florida Scrub-Jay.
Venice High School math teacher and track coach Tom
Trealout, the overall winner, set a new course record at
16:47, while Bethany Heslain of Sarasota was the over-
all women's winner. The oldest entrant, senior
Olympian Mary Haines of Osprey, 91, completed the
5K course with the help of her seeing-eye dog Verna.

Quonset hut out as Gauguin museum


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


A plan to put a Paul
Gauguin museum in the
downtown area hit a road-
block this week that will force
planners to rethink the pro-
ject.
Sarasota County commis-
sioners balked at allowing the
Arts Alliance of Lemon Bay to
use a county-owned quonset
hut on Green Street as a site
for the museum.
There are concerns about
the structure and whether a
temporary museum would
be moved out of the building


if the space were needed for
something else.
Tommy Kester, president
of the Arts Alliance, has been
the catalyst for developing
the museum proposal as a
potential tourist draw for
Olde Englewood Village. He
said he was very disappoint-
ed by the decision of the com-
missioners.
"I don't see any support
here, and that is upsetting,"
Kester said. "I don't know
what happened."
The commissioners
brought the issue up during a
joint meeting with the
Englewood Community


Redevelopment Area
Advisory Board Tuesday.
Board members were wor-
ried that if the museum were
to be put into the quonset
hut, even temporarily, it
would cost too much for
upkeep.
"If we move them into this
facility and try to get them
out, it will be an uprising,"
said Commissioner Shannon
Staub.
Open to suggestions
Commission Chairman
David Mills said the county
will likely need to replace the
quonset hut in the future and


did not see a reason to spend
money on upkeep for a build-
ing that might not exist in a
few years.
The site is also being con-
sidered as a possible reloca-
tion site for the Lemon Bay
Playhouse, which would
build a new playhouse there.
The county also owns
waterfront property on
Cherokee Street that has been
mentioned as a possible site
for a museum. Staub said it
could be an option.
While members of the
alliance were taken aback by
the commissioners' decision,
they are not stopping with

Homework improvement tip: Take a walk around the block


LYNN REIFERT


Can something as simple
as walking with your child
every evening after dinner
before doing homework help
them do better in school? Yes.
Walking has been called
the master of all exercises. It is
not just good for the body -
it is also great for the mind.
Walking involves coordinat-
ing both sides of the body,
engaging both hemispheres
of the brain.

ence learning difficulties also
demonstrate a lack of coordi-
nation and timing.
They hesitate, or find it
impossible, to alternately
touch the right hand then the
left hand to the opposite
knee. They may have more
difficulty coordinating the
movement of arms and legs
to perform a jumping-jack
exercise. It may be hard for
them to learn to skip.
There is a strong connec-
tion between movement, or
motor development, and
learning.
Many children start school
before they are physically
ready to do so. Some children
need more time and experi-
ence, than others their same
ages, to run and skip; throw
and catch balls; and climb the
monkey bars (all using both
sides of the body in coordina-
tion). These activities con-
tribute to balancing the brain.


The acts of reading and
writing require that the two
sides of the brain work in syn-
chronization. Elementary
school teachers may have
noticed that children in their
classes who continue to
reverse letters like b and d
also tend to be uncoordinat-
ed and confuse directions
involving left and right.
Most students have spent a
large part of their days sitting
at desks in classrooms. The
inactivity can cause them to
feel tired and lethargic.
Because of this, they may be
very resistant to sitting down
to a long homework session
immediately after eating din-
ner. Parents can find them-
selves engaged in a serious
battle.
. However, a quick hike
around the neighborhood
could create a much calmer
evening for both parents and
children. Afterward, one feels


physically calm, energetic
and mentally alert.
Taking even a short walk is
excellent preparation for sit-
ting still, concentrating and
engaging the whole brain for
learning.
The emotional benefits of
parents and children walking
together can also be educa-
tionally beneficial. Walking
together can provide distrac-
tion-free time for conversa-
tion, as long as cell phones
are turned off.
When children, no matter
what ages they are, have the
opportunity to share their day
with, someone who cares
enough to listen, it can have a
relaxing effect. The brain is
more receptive to informa-
tion when it is relaxed.
Tension and stress create
blockades in the brain.
Walking has more to offer
than most people realize. It is
an exercise for the brain, as

well as the body. It can help
make evening study time less
stressful and more effective.
And, it can help children of all
ages become, and stay, more
educationally fit.

VENICE GONDOLIER SUN 11B


COLLEGE
for troubled teenagers in the
pre-Vietnam era. Juvenile
delinquency and drug usage
was on the rise. College Club
members chose speakers
who could address these
problems and offer ways to
counter the negative influ-
ences on young people of the
time. Cultural activities were
promoted and students were
encouraged and helped to
attend the Ringling Museum
of Art as well as performances
of the Asolo Theatre
Company in nearby Sarasota.
Members also assisted the
Venice-Nokomis Woman's
Club in its goal to form a pub-
lic library in Venice, using the
Woman's Club library collec-
tion as a starting point. The
Woman's Club collection was
the only source of lending
books in the area until the
new library was opened in
1965.
College admission
remained a prime interest.
George Edmondson was
brought in to give a talk about
the comparison of English
and American schools. At that
time, the push was on to send
everyone to college in
America while England con-
tinued to allow only the most
academically inclined to
attend universities.
The quality of education in
Florida was also a major
topic. At another joint meet-
ing with the Venice-Nokomis
Woman's Club, Dr. George
Brougham, then president of
New College, was invited to
speak about his school's liber-
al arts and science programs,
which were designed to equal
the best in the nation, and to
raise the bar for college edu-
cation in Florida.
Social events were gradu-
ally added to the schedule
and quarterly book review
meetings were scheduled on
Thursday mornings.

PHOTOS COURTESY OF THE COLLEGE CLUB
College Club members present former Salvation Army of
Venice Captain John Fuller with filled Christmas stockings for
its Christmas project.


The Futures Program of
Venice High School was a
long way off in the mid 1960s
but College Club members
were doing some of the same
things that recent Rotary pro-
ject has accomplished. The
club arranged with Sarasota
Federal Savings and Loan to
provide space for student/
faculty meetings and to
donate books, records and
magazines to students.
Continuing its support of
the new Venice Public Library,
the club voted to donate a
new book to the library in
memory of deceased club
members.
.In its 10th year, the club
was honored by two Sarasota
papers for its promotion of
improved education.
As members promoted
education, they also provided
scholarships to Venice stu-
dents. In the 1970s, recogniz-
ing a need for more nurses in
the state, they added a nurs-
ing scholarship.
Early in the 1980s club


members assembled an exhi-
bition about Spanish Oaks in
Osprey and the legacy of Mrs.
Potter Palmer. Historic
Spanish Point is a legacy of
that meeting. Other organiza-
tions that have benefited
from College Club members
are the Venice Little Theatre,
Venice Art Center, the
Cecilian Music Society, school
music groups and always, the
Venice Public Library. When
Manatee Community College
was formed in May, 1984, the
club gave a generous dona-
tion for the reference wing of
its library.
Much of the recorded his-
tory of the club was compiled
for its 45th anniversary by
two-time club president Lois
Peeler, a club member since
the late 1980s. She served as
president in 1989-90 and
again in 2004-05 and current-
ly serves as the club's vice
president.
Peeler said the main differ-
ence between the College
Club and other women's


clubs is that "we are not a
fund-raising group. We have a
50-50 at each meeting and
annual dues."
Another difference is that
the club is limited to 100
members and they must have
degrees, Peeler said. At the
end of each year money not
needed to defray expenses is
donated to local organiza-
tions, with most of it going to
fund scholarships at Venice
High School.
Present and future goals
During Cellura's term, the
club has continued its assist
students with educational
programs and scholarships
while working closely with
other community groups for
the enrichment of all.
The theme of her year in
office has been one of cele-
bration, appreciation and
future growth. The club in its
47th year is strong. Members
can look back on a string of
accomplishments to be cele-
brated while looking forward
to continued growth, with the
enrollment of new members
a priority.
"Collectively and individu-
ally our membership repre-
sents a plethora of accom-
plishments and talents,"
Cellura said. "Each, in her
way, is very special. Each
makes the College Club what
it is. A club is only as good as
its membership ... and we are
good!"
Meetings continue to be
held on the first Tuesday of
the month although the loca-
tion has changed over the
years. -Currently, the club
holds its luncheon meetings
at the Jacaranda West
Country Club in Venice.
There is always a speaker,
socialization and usually, a
raffle or other fund-raiser,
with the proceeds going to
fund current club projects,
which continue to include
scholarships. Serving with


Cellura are Lois Peeler as vice
president, Rhoda Bernstein
as recording secretary, Jean
Peters as corresponding sec-
retary, Nancy Messer as trea-
surer and Linda Sharp as
assistant treasurer.
There are 16 committees
within the club, with 16 chair-
men to carry out the various
duties such as supervision of
the end of year grants, which
benefit such area organiza-
tions as the Salvation Army,
the Venice Little Theatre's
education programs for chil-
dren, the Venice Symphony,
Venice Art Center, Friends of
the Public Libraries, annual
Venice High School scholar-
ships and Sarasota Ballet: the
Next Generation. Barbara
Bluhm is the chairman of the
Community Enrichment
committee, which is respon-
sible for dispensing these
grants.
Programs offered this sea-
son have included talks by
Sarasota county librarian
Cindy Guest, Venice Regional
Medical Center CEO Melody
Trimble, Venice Gondolier
Sun Features Editor Kin Cool,
Women's Resource Center
Executive Director Janice
Zarro, Coastal behavior
Healthcare CEO Dr. Christine
Cauffield and performances
by harpist Betsy Wagner and
The Envoy Quartet.
The club's fine arts pro-
gram and event schedule has
included attendance at
Sarasota Ballet of Florida per-
formances of "Eva Peron,"
"Swan Lake" and "Carmina
Burana" plus performances
by Exultate!, a 45-voice
chorale, and Deborah Berioli,
a soprano with the San Jose
Ballet Company.
"Over the months, I have
attempted to bring 'about
change," Cellura said. "It has
been very slow, but deliberate
on my part.

Greater Good: How
Philanthropy Drives the
American Economy," Cellura
wants the club to get back to
its roots and concentrate
more fully on its scholarship
program. Gaudiani, a senior
research scholar at Yale
University's law school,
stresses the need to invest in
human capital through edu-
cation rather than incarcera-
tion, Cellura said.
"The figures, the statistics
throughout the book are
mind-boggling,' she said. "If
we examine literacy, educa-
tion and educational oppor-
tunities then there is absolute
evidence that we all need to
be more involved."
. Cellura took the ideas pro-
mulgated in that book to the
club board last fall. The result
of that meeting has led to the
club naming April Academic
Month at the College Club. In
keeping with the plan, the
club will have Manatee
Community College
President Sarah Pappas as its
luncheon speaker and several
Venice High School students
as guests at its Tuesday, April
11 luncheon/meeting at the
JacarandaWest Country Club.
Event chair Joan Schum
has enlisted the help of the
high school to invite students
who will attend MCC or some
other college or university in
the fall. Club members will
sponsor the luncheon costs
for the invited students.
"I would hope that the
entire College Club member-
ship will become involved
with education and the
young people in our commu-
nity," Cellura said.
"I have expressed to the
board that it is my hope that
next year the College Club
will set its sights on addition-
al scholarships."
For more information
about becoming a member of
the College Club, call Cellura

SOCIAL COLUMNIST



Music


made in


America

Each concert performed by
the Venice Symphony gives
the audience a chance to
establish a connection. The
March program featured
American composer Joan
Tower. The orchestra debuted,
"Made in America" and played
"Fanfare for the Uncommon
Woman, No. 1." The music
was loud, filled with brass
and percussion and made
everyone realize they just
heard something spectacular
and new.
Fanfare made me want to
shout, "Three cheers for
women."
"Made In America" was
machines, maracas depicting
a melting pot, sounds of
the city and unpredictable
sounds very much like our
country. Three cheers for Wes
for taking a chance with this
terrific composer.
The Feb concert at the
Church of the Nazarene in-
troduced 16-year-old Violinist
Krista Stewart. She brought
the audience to their feet as
she performed "Violin Con-
certo in d minor." This talent-
ed teenager from Middleton,
Wisconsin studies violin with
Eugene Purdue and David
Perry and has performed at
Carnegie Hall as winner of
the Lukas Foss Young artist
Concerto Competition.
The Venice Symphony
performs again on April 7.
Call 488-1010.
