The Sarasota County School District has imposed
a hiring freeze because lower-than-expected

Gulf Coast property up for annexation


After plenty of talking, the community
foundation's 146 acres are about to become part
of the city and heat up the workforce-affordable
housing debate.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


The catalyst for shaping
the future of North Venice is
about to take a step closer to
officially becoming part of the
city.
The Venice Planning Com-
mission will consider the
annexation petition for Gulf
Coast Community Founda-
tion of Venice's 146 acres. A
year ago Florida's largest
community foundation pur-
chased the land that connects
Laurel and Border roads as a
business investment and tool
to create workforce housing.

Located just east of
Interstate 75, the develop-
ment will be called The
Bridges andbe an experiment
in creating workforce hous-
ing. Venice will waive a por-
tion of city impact fees for
each GCCFV home that
meets workforce housing
stipulations, drafted by Ven-
ice in the annexation agree-
ment.
"We hope to annex into the
city of Venice very soon to
keep The Bridges neighbor-
hood moving forward,"
GCCFV President and CEO
Teri Hansen said. "We ap-
plaud the city for waiving im-


pact fees for workforce
homes. That will put even
more homes within reach of
nurses, firefighters, city em-
ployees and other people we
need."
The planning commission
meets at 1:30 p.m. in council
chambers of city hall.
Venice has offered to waive
portions of the "'extraordinary
impact" fee of $1,760 on
homes that meet one or more
of three requirements sug-
gested by the city. For each
one of these stipulations met,
the city would waive one-
third ($587) of the impact fee:
One-third if the home is
sold to a city of Venice em-
ployee or person employed
by a Venice-based business.
One-third if the home's'
value or rental cost is at or
below 80 percent of the medi-
an housing price.


One-third if family in-
come is at or below 120 per-
cent of the median income
for Sarasota County.
City Manager Marty Black
hopes this agreement pro-
vides a blueprint for future
developments.
This also could become
part of the city's comprehen-
sive plan, the state-mandated
document that directs Venice
growth and must be updated
by next year. Much like every
Florida community, Venice is
required to add an afford-
able/workforce housing sec-
tion.
"It is the most critical topic
affecting the city, affecting all
cities," the city manager said.

Area moorings closer to reality


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


A last-moment snag in
finding a suitable docking
facility for professional salt-
water fishing guides in the
area has been averted. As a
consequence, the 12 charter
captains in the Venice Area
Fishing Guides Association
have been promised moor-
ings in the Intracoastal Water-
way in Nokomis and Osprey.
A 40-foot section of the
seawall on the west side of the
waterway, opposite Pop's Grill
in Nokomis, will be available
to the association. So will
docks offshore from an 11-
acre property on the south
side of Blackburn Point Road
in Osprey. That was pur-
chased in 2005 by Sarasota
County for use as a public
boat ramp.
Working jointly with the
county Parks and Recreation
Department, the association
had fixed on the 40-foot sec-
tion, which is owned by the
county. It is adjacent to a 300-


foot dock owned by the U.S.
Coast Guard.
The Coast Guard main-
tains a lease on the longer
section for use by a barge that
requires it when checking
waterway markings. The fed-
,eral agency gave up the sta-
tion to the Coast Guard
Auxiliary some time ago.
A taxpayer's objection to
the use of county-owned land
by a for-profit organization
prompted a revised agree-
ment for the use of the 40-
foot section. The county com-
missioner told the associa-
tion that no fees can be col-
lected from fishing boat pas-
sengers at the site, and no
funds will be expended by the
county.
Additional dock space has
become available with the
county purchase of the Young
property on Blackburn Point
Road in Osprey. Local fisher-
men have used the docks for
years, according to Capt.
Eddie Toomer, spokesman for
the association.
He said he had been invit-


ed by John McCarthy, general
manager of parks and recre-
ation, to work with his staff on
developing procedures to
load and unload fishing boat
passengers at both locations.
Gary Howland, association
president, said that he and
the other captains who fish
offshore have spent more
than a year seeking replace-
ment of moorings lost to
development. He cited the
Honoluana Tiki Bar in
Nokomis, Marker 4 in the
waterway, Fisherman's Wharf
and the Hatchett Creek
bridge among lost moorings.
"One of our members went
out of business earlier this
year when he lost his spot,"
said Howland.
"Another tried operating
from private docks in the
area, or picking up passen-
gers at designated locations.
But we can't really do busi-
ness that way," he added.

When growth projections
were reduced for the second
time in late February, Sara-
sota County School District
officials recognized a new
problem brewing the need
to scale back staffing for next
year.
On March 24 Superin-
tendent Gary Norris issued a
memoran-
dum to
school prin-
cipals an-
nouncing a
temporary

pension.
The dis-
trict received
its state Norris
funding for
the 2005-06 school year back
in October based on an en-
rollment projection of 1,500
new students. In November,
that projection was trimmed
to 750. By February the school
district had received the
money attached to those new
students, but in late February
the district again scaled back
projections this time esti-
mating only 275 new stu-
dents.
Now it's payback time.
Exactly how much won't be
known until the end of the
school year, but district offi-
cials are estimating between
$5 million-$6 million. In No-
vember, when the district first


realized it overprojected, it
called on schools to hold back
2 percent of their personnel
budgets. A $5.5 million con-
tingency fund was amassed
to cover the anticipated
shortfall.
The contingency fund
should cover the costs associ-
ated with overprojecting en-
rollment.
Still, district officials have
decided to reevaluate staffing
needs before principals shift
into high gear for another
round of hiring for the 2006-
07 school year. That typically
begins in April.
Emerging trends
From 1999 to 2004 the
Sarasota County School Dis-
trict averaged about 1,200
new students yearly, say dis-
trict administrators. But this
year's estimated increase of
only 275 has administrators
scratching their heads.
District officials blamed
Southwest Florida's red-hot
housing market and worst-
ever hurricane season for
scaring off families from Sara-
sota County.
"An analysis of this (enroll-
ment) trending data has
resulted in an adjustment of
student projections for the
coming school year. Since our
state funding is directly tied to
enrollment, it is clear that
staffing must be adjusted to
reflect this emerging reality,"

BACK IN TIME
UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA, 1965













Little Known Famous Floridians
BY JOE"FASTHORSE" HARRILL

ROBERT CADE was a physician at the University of
Florida in 1965 when he was asked by the Gator football
coach to find out why his ballplayers lost so much weight
during practice and games. Cade and his research team
found that the loss of electrolytes, through perspiration,
disrupted the body's chemical balance. This condition
caused low blood sugar and low blood volume, resulting
in a loss of energy. To correct this problem, Dr. Cade con-
cocted a drink that contained salt and sugar to replace
lost electrolytes. The first batch tasted so bad no one
could drink it. Then someone suggested adding lemons.
Voila Gatorade! The Gators loved it. They drank gallons
and they won games. A Florida newspaper summed it up.
"One.swig of that Kickapoo Juice and biff, bam, sock!!! It's
Gators 8 to 2." Gatorade has become the most popular
sports drink in history. It is now quaffed by people from
all walks of life in every country in the world. Even in
outer space.

Push for 1-75 construction is on


From the March 31, 1975, Venice Gondolier Sun.


STAFF REPORT


Governor Reubin Askew
remains the major stumbling
block in speeding construction
of 1-75 along Florida's South-
west coast.
Congressman L.A. (Skip)
Bafalis told The Gondolier in a
special interview that Congress
has made every effort to clear
the way fqr the'la-st interstate


highway.
Funding at the Washington
level had been a problem. But
Bafalis said the slowdown now
lies strictly with the state of
Florida.
Friday morning, Senator
Warren Henderson of Venice
placed the blame directly on
the governor's shoulders. At a
special meeting called by

Commerce president Fran
Furey, Henderson said the final
decision on road spending lies
with the governor.
Contracts have been let on
the final segments of Askew's
so-called "pet project," Inter-
state 10, which would allow
more money for 1-75. But no
progress has been made.
Several plans were formu-
lated at the meeting. One will
be an effort to have thousands


of letters and postcards sent
to the governor in mid-April
to bring the matter to his
attention.
The second prong of the
attack will entail buying radio
and TV time on Tallahassee
stations to bring pressure to
bear on the governor's office.
Third will be a delegation
to visit the governor to direct-
ly seek his consideration.
If all else fails, a motorcade.

Tropical Bob is concerned
that what's going on Down
Under has implications for us.
First, we learned Cyclone
Larry two weeks ago was
the strongest storm to hit Aus-
tralia in three decades. Last
week, Cyclone Glenda came
ashore with 145 mph winds.
Super storms, both.
We also learned that global
warming is heating up Ant-
arctica. Ice is melting in state-
size chunks. We're losing our
reflector shield provided by
white ice. Exposed water will
heat up.
That means more and
stronger hurricanes. What's
happening Down Under could
be a precursor of what will hap-
pen Up Here this summer.

Historic church makes history


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

For only the second time in
history, an Englewood build-
ing has received official rec-
ognition by Sarasota County.
The old Englewood Meth-
odist Church, most common-
ly referred to as the Green
Street Church, at 416 Green
St., now has a plaque denot-
ing its place on the Sarasota
County Register of Historic
Places.
In a ceremony Thursday at
the church, more than 50
people gathered to celebrate
the honor.


Sarasota County Historical
Commission member Evelyn
Hoskins presented the plaque
to life-long resident Don
Platt, who is a founding
member and past president
of the Lemon Bay Historical
Society.
Platt provided a brief histo-
ry of the building, saying it
was the first formal church in
the community. Platt's grand-
father was one of the first per-
manent settlers in
Englewood, arriving in 1894.
"It was truly a wilderness,"
he said. "Before this was built,
people went to church in
homes or other buildings."


This bronze plaque will be hung up outside at the Green Street
Church in honor of the first freestanding church in Englewood.

The church was in bad
shape when the Historical
Society first had an interest in
it.
"It is so beautiful, with its
hard-pine floor," Platt said.
Like when new
Current society President
Charlie Hicks said most of the
credit for getting the designa-
tion can be directly attributed
to Platt and Edith Wright.
Historic Preservation
Specialist Lorrie Muldowney
said the historical society
went through a nine-month
process to get the designa-
tion.
"There was little doubt
about the church's history,"
Muldowney said. "I had to do
a detailed check of the struc-
ture and other issues, and
everything is right."
The guidelines include
making sure as much of the
original structure and design
are similar to what they were
when it was originally built, in
1928. The prime concern is
the front of the structure.
The Lemon Bay Woman's
Club at Cocoanut and Maple
streets received the same des-
ignation in 1988.
To receive the plaque, the
owners of a historically signif-
icant building must first
request the designation; then,
an investigation can begin.
The Historical Commission
also must give its approval.
The plaque is a different
designation than the green
historical marker that sits in
front of the church and at sev-
eral locations throughout the

community.
Muldowney said the his-
torical markers typically
denote the history of a place
but are not necessarily linked
to a specific structure.
An example of this would
be the marker on West
Dearborn Street.
Matter of pride
The county historic desig-
nation entitles an owner to a
variety of programs to en-
courage the preservation of
significant historical re-
sources.
These range from incen-

tives to promote sensitive his-
torical rehabilitation by offer-
ing some relief from building
and zoning codes, and a
property-tax exemption for
qualifying improvements to
historic structures.
Historical Society mem-
bers said they hope to apply
to become listed in the
National Register of Historic
Places.
That process is similar to
the county process, with
nearly all of the same criteria.
Bob Jones of the National
Register of Historic Places
said the application would


require a preliminary ques-
tionnaire that would be fol-
lowed up by a larger package.
The national designation is
not regulatory, but can offer
federal tax breaks.
Jones said any designation
is included in the national
listing, which he said can
become a matter of pride.

the county program, contact

Center at 861-5000.

Posti ng pe r sonal i nf o tur ns f un into trouble


BY GABRIELA RAMIREZ
SUN INTERN


A 16-year-old girl and a 22-
year-old man begin chatting
on the Internet. A week later,
she meets him at a mall.
She intended to spend the
evening watching movies
with him, but ends up having
sex. The girl still keeps in
contact with the man, but
not as much as before. He's
begun to chat online with
one of her friends.
The girl is local. The man
lives in Tampa. They met on
a social Internet site.
Teens love these sites.
They've opened up a whole
new social world to millions
of them, but at the same
time have exposed them to
potential danger.
The most popular is a Web
site called MySpace and it's a
place teens are in the process
of making their own or so
they think.
Almost obsessed
Of the more than 2,000
students at an area high
school, nearly one-third have
an account on MySpace.com.
Recently, school officials
blocked computer access to
the Web site because so many


students were logging on dur-
ing school hours. In fact, three
out of five students inter-
viewed said they sign onto
MySpace nearly every day.
"I love MySpace. I'm al-
most obsessed," said Brittany
Amick, a 17-year-old junior.
Her parents, she said, have
never seen her online profile.
The popular Web site has
caught the interest of today's
teenagers and young adults
by allowing them to commu-
nicate with friends, relatives
and complete strangers. The
only requirements to register
are having a current e-mail
address and stating that you
are over 14 a restriction
underage kids can easily get
around.
While parents may wonder
what exactly attracts teen-
agers to the site, teens will tell
you it's a way to express them-
selves and to meet people.
"Teens spend hours on the
phone with friends, and it
seems nowadays, many teens
will sign onto MySpace and
spend hours on the Web site
each day," said Corrina
Chavez, 16.
In two years, MySpace has
signed up 60 million mem-
bers, with about 10 million of
them under the age of 17. It


has become the Web's top
social networking site, with
twice the traffic of Google
Inc. and eBay, according to
ComScore Media Metrix.
"MySpace is so much fun,
but if you abuse it, then it
could be dangerous," Amick
said.
What has parents worried
is that anyone, including
sexual predators, can register
as teens and become part of
the social network. They can
communicate directly with
teens and establish relation-
ships. They can also look for
clues like a sports schedule
and a specific playing field
and game time to where a
teen will be.
W hat's on MySpace?
Members can register on
MySpace and quickly create a
page that features pictures of
themselves, friends or pets,
and lists all kinds of informa-
tion about themselves their
age, hometown, relationship
status, hobbies, sexual orien-
tation, body type, ethnicity,
zodiac sign, school and job.
Users. can express their
personality by displaying cus-
tom backgrounds and music.
They can leave pictures or
graphics on their friends'


Protect your kids from online predators


BY GABRIELA RAMIREZ
SUN INTERN


Detective Thomas Stella
thought it would be a good
idea to teach parents how to
keep their children safe when
using the wildly popular Web
site, MySpace.com.
He was disappointed when
only four adults showed up at
a recent evening seminar held
at a local school..
"This is absolutely danger-
ous," Stella said about chil-
dren meeting adults online.
It's not the Web site itself
he has a problem with, but
the unmonitored use of it by
minors.
"This site is a good idea if
you're 18 or above," Stella said,
"The first reasons given on
MySpace.com on why to join
the site are relationship-
oriented. It's overwhelmed
with adult content."
According to the 'About Us"
section of MySpace.com, the
site is for everyone, including
single people who want to
meet other singles, and
matchmakers who want to
connect their friends with
other friends.
"By posting content on
any public area of MySpace.
com, you automatically grant

MySpace.com, the nonexclu-
sive, fully paid, worldwide
license to use, publicly, per-
form and display such con-
tent on the Web site," accord-
ing to condition No. 5 on
MySpace. com.
Parents should encourage
their children to share infor-
mation and pictures with
them before they post them
on the Internet, Stella said.
"Whatever photo a child
posts on the site becomes
public domain," Stella said.
It also gives away some-
thing that could be of value
to a teen later in life.
"The MySpace Terms of
Service demand users give
up their rights to whatever
they post on the public areas
of the site," according to a
Common Sense Media re-
view. "This ignored item
means your kids' illustrated
public blog could become the
next paperback bestseller, or
blockbuster movie, and they
won't have anything to say
about it, or any monetary
gain from its use."
Take control
What concerns Stella more
is that kids are using real
information, such as their
school name, home address-


es, and even telephone num-
bers, on MySpace, according
to Stella.
"If you have a sexual of-
fender on MySpace, your
child has given him the infor-
mation instead of having to
work for it," Stella said.
Parents should explain to
their children that people
may not always be who they
say they are.
"I deleted my account on
MySpace after thinking twice
about the danger it puts me
in," said Olga Pedashov, a
high school junior.
Parents can simply visit
MySpace.com and do a little
detective work of their own
by searching for their teen's
name, school and friends.
Stella tells worried parents
to consider installing parental
control software into home
computers so they can moni-
tor their teens' activities on-
line. He said there are addi-
tional measures a parent can
take to safeguard children.
However, he prefers to speak
directly with parents about
these options.
"If I explain in the news-
paper what programs are
out there," he said, "then
teens can find out what they
are and dismantle them."

pages, and invite people to
comment on their page.
Members also use Web
logs known on the site as
"blogs." Many spend much
time writing down their
thoughts and opinions in
these qnline journals.
People can find others
using searches, either by
their first and last name,
school name, e-mail address,
job, interests or through
other friends on MySpace.
Users will often browse
from one page to another in
an extended network of peo-
ple. One may create links to
someone else's page by
naming them a "friend." This
becomes a shortcut often
used to view friends' profiles
much faster.
This Web site also allows
users to spread the word
about a favorite rock band
by an extended "word of
mouth" and by directing
friends to a band's own page
where music can be listened
to or downloaded.
The danger
'Although my daughter is
learning valuable Web design
and computer skills, this
trade does not make up for
the dangers they are expos-
ed to on MySpace," said
Eustolia Chavez, mother of
16-year-old Corrina.
Her concern is valid.
Last month, police in Mid-
dletown, Conn., investigated
reports involving as many as
seven young girls sexually


assaulted by men in their.
20s. The men had contacted
the girls through MySpace,
where they had pretended to
be teenagers.
Social networking sites
like MySpace and others
have been in the news. In
January, a 14-year-old girl in
Newark, N.J., was found
naked and strangled in a
garbage bin. Friends said she
had been in contact with an
older man through the
Internet.
That same month, a 26-
year-old Houston man was
charged with sexual assault,
accused of luring a 15-year-
old-girl into a relationship
through MySpace.
And last week, FBI offi-
cials in Connecticut revealed
that a pair of undercover
agents went on MySpace to
track down two adult men
who had sexually assaulted
underage girls they contacted
over a Web site.
According to the Center
for Missing and Exploited
Children, there were more'
than 2,600 incidents reported
last year of adults using the
Internet to entice children.
"If you're not cautious
enough to not post personal
information about yourself
and talk to people you don't
know online, you shouldn't
have a MySpace," said Amick.
MySpace's parent compa-
ny, News Corp., says it will
soon start screening mem-
bers to prevent the kinds of
crimes that have drawn the


attention of authorities and
parents.
Although no details of the
new plan have been released,
chief executive Chris DeWolf
said the company is search-
ing for an executive to head
its safety and security edu-
cation program.
Adults may be overthink-
ing the dangers, according to
some experts who monitor
kids and their use of the
media.
Kelly McBride,, ethics'
group leader at the Poynter
Institute, a media-studies
organization, said news sto-
ries about MySpace have
made it sound like "a place
where only bad things can
happen."
The thing that adults miss,
she says, is that kids have
taken a site originally created
so they could share, mteir,,
music and transformed it
into a. new thing, a whole
new social environment.
"One of the things that
happens just .naturally to
adults when kids become
innovators is, we tend to re-
act out of the frame we
know, which is the frame of
the protector, and we don't
necessarily value the inno-
vation that they are bring-
ing," she said.

Polcy oucilreisits class-ize eductio


A legislative policy council gives short shrift to
the touted benefits of Florida's class-size
reduction amendment, saying it "will likely
adversely impact the quality of education."


EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first
in a weekly series on Florida's
class-size reduction amendment
three years into its implemnenta-
tion.
BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

When voters first approved
the class-size reduction
amendment to Florida's state
constitution in 2002,. most
based their decision largely
on whether it could help
improve student achieve-
ment.
The public and most edu-
cators recognize something
inherently beneficial about
smaller class sizes, but it's not
better test scores or "higher
achievement," according a
new study.
Largely unnoticed when it
was released in November
2005, a new report states that
not only is CSR unlikely to im-
prove student achievement,
but the opposite is likely.
"CSR will likely adversely
impact the quality of educa-
tion," concludes the Council
for Education Policy, Re-
search and Improvement in
its study, Impact of the Class
Size Amendment on the
Quality of Education in Flor-
ida.
The study doesn't base its
conclusions on any analysis
of empirical student test data.
Authors say it is too early to
conduct a valid study of stu-
dent achievement data be-
cause the law hasn't been
fully implemented.
The law isn't slated to be
implemented until 2010.
Besides, it takes four years or
more of data to accurately
identify trends.
Instead, the study relies


partially on a rehash of
research conducted in other
states, such as California and
Tennessee, that have CSR
laws, to draw preliminary
conclusions about what they
see is likely to happen in
Florida regarding student
achievement.


utilization of existing class-
rooms.
Academic electives, sup-
plemental courses and non-
core courses are being re-
duced or eliminated in order
to ensure scarce teaching
resources are focused on
meeting class size mandates.
CEPRI based its conclu-
sion of CSR's unlikely benefi-
cial impact on academic out-
comes on a sea of research
that indicates only very small
class sizes (in the 15-and-
under range) make a real dif-


REDUCTION AS A STRATEGY
Preliminary conclusions of the Council for Education Policy,
Research and Improvement, report published November 2005:
'The plethora of uninterided consequences will likely adversely
impact the qualir,' of education particularly in schools that are
already disadvantaged.
* Achievement down There is no clear evidence that reducing
class size leads to increased .academic outcomes for students in all
grades The probable result would appear to be to reduce stu-
dent achievement.
- Individual time insignificant Reducing class size lhas had an
insignificant impact onr a tuident s individual time with the
teacher
* Less choice Paiental choice of schools is being reduced by
districts in order to optimize utilization of existing classrooms.
* Fewer electives Academic electives supplemental courses
and non-core coui ses awe beinq reduced or eliminated in order to
ensure scarce teaching resources are focused on meeting class-
size mand3te-s.


Bursting bubbles
The research and a survey
of what six Florida school dis-
tricts have been doing lately
to meet class-size reduction
rules serve as the basis for
CEPRI's conclusions.
Among them:
There is no clear evidence
that reducing class size leads
to increased academic out-
comes for students in all
grades.
Reducing class size has
had an insignificant impact
on a student's individual time
with the teacher.
Parental choice of
schools is being reduced by
districts in order to optimize


ference in student achieve-
ment, and then only in the
early grades (K-three).
Another presumed benefit
- that smaller classes equal
more individual attention -
is also shattered by research,
including that of J. Bucking-
ham (2003).
Buckingham's research
states that while devoting
more time to each student in
a smaller class is appealing,
the appeal is misplaced. His
analysis of a six-hour school
day with classes reduced
from 25 to 20 students only
gave each student an extra 90
seconds of individual atten-
tion each day (assuming 50
percent of teacher time is

spent on lecture).
Instead, Buckingham and
other researchers say it's bet-
ter in educational and eco-
nomic terms to have good
teachers than lots of teachers.
Unintended
consequences
CEPRI's last two conclu-
sions are based on Florida
experience, and portend a
view of what's to come.
The policy body suggests
that school-choice options for
parents are being limited
because of school responses
to meet class-size rules.
Smaller class sizes mean
more classrooms are being
used, and fewer student sta-
tions are available through
"controlled choice" programs,
including the No Child Left
Behind rule that mandates
choice for parents of students

Airport homes may need upgrades to be used


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

The decagonal buildings
being refurbished at Kiwanis
Buchan Park on Old Engle-
wood Road may need more
work than had been initially
anticipated.
And that could change
plans to use the buildings as a
temporary home for the area
chamber of commerce and a
permanent home for an envi-
ronmental learning center.
The old buildings need to
be brought up to current
building codes, even though
they were built many years
ago, which could present an
obstacle for future uses.
The buildings were in line
to be a temporary home for
the Englewood-Cape Haze
Chamber of Commerce and
the future home of the Eng-
lewood Sustainable Environ-


mental Learning Center.
Gary Spraggins, public
works project manager for
Sarasota County, said the
county is seeking permits to
upgrade the structures, but
that work may be put on hold
as officials attempt to figure
out whether upgrades are fis-
cally feasible.
The five houses were relo-
cated from Manasota Key.
"They were scheduled to
be done by October to get the
chamber of commerce in
there, but we are not sure that
is going to happen," Sprag-
gins said. "We are still work-
ing on the permitting."
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Shannon Staub said
the buildings could be leased
to the chamber while their
building on Indiana Avenue is
replaced.
"It's really taking on a nice
flavor. A real cooperative


effort," Staub said during a
recent joint meeting between
the commissioners and the
Englewood Community Re-
development Area Advisory
Board.
Gateway in mind
No formal lease has been
drafted for the chamber, but
Staub sees it as a way to have
a permanent visitors center at
the site when the chamber
moves back after the new
headquarters is completed.
Such an idea is consid-
ered an important part of
the revitalization of the area
and a key location as the
CRA hopes to make Old
Englewood Road a gateway
to the community.
The chamber is currently
working on plans to replace
its existing building, but those
details will not be available
for several more weeks, Karen


Maurer, the chamber's execu-
tive director, said onWednes-
day.
As the county awaits its
permits for the hardening of
the structures, work contin-
ues on the interior, said Ad-
visory Board Chair Mary Ellen
Diez.
Diez said the CRA is
working with several non-
profit groups that are inter-
ested in using the decago-
nal homes.
Spraggins said if the homes
are too expensive to retrofit,
they will remain at the park
and a new building would be
needed for the learning cen-
ter.
A decision on what will
happen with the homes will
be made in the next two
months.

at: breddy@sun-herald.com.

These homes at the Kiwanis Buchan Park in Englewood may
need to be retrofitted before anyone can move into them.


VHA public workshop
The public is invited to
attend a workshop on the
new development of Grove
Terrace Apartments, the only
public housing complex in
South County.
The meeting will be at 6
p.m. Tuesday at the Venice
Housing Authority Commun-
ity Center, 201 N. Grove St.,


Venice.
The four main topics listed
on the agenda are conceptual
site plan design, relocation of
current residents, demolition

units and timeline for com-

Sam Prost, the new VHA
chair; Kristen Packard, the

and representatives from
Picerne Development.
Copies of the materials
handed out include a bound-
ary survey of the property
(with no buildings). Partic-
ipants will be asked what they
believe the site plan should
look like.
The format will be an open
forum, allowing input from


all members of the public in
attendance.
VHA hopes to expand
Grove Terrace from the 50
low-income units there now
to as many as 144. VHA ap-
plied Feb. 1 for Low-Income
Housing Tax Credit financing
with the Florida Housing
Finance Corp. It will find out
in August if tax credits will be


awarded to finance Phase 1 of
its redevelopment project at a
cost of $11.3 million.
The Residents Council
stands opposed to the plan
and wants the process to start
over. VHA disagrees and con-
tinues pressing forward.
Reuse water spill
About 100 gallons of re-


use water spilled from a re-
use line at the former
wastewater treatment plant
on the island.
The leak happened on
March 29 at around 3:15 p.m.
The water soaked into the
ground and the break was
repaired.
There is-no danger to the
public.

anticipated that this impact
will grow as full implementa-

Districts also reported a
variety of budget adjustments
that were made to implement


CSR, including reductions to
technology purchases, para-
professional positions, mag-
net programs, supplemental
coaching in math, science
and reading, and dropout
prevention programs. One
district also reported reduc-

The report also outlines


challenges in attracting
"highly qualified" teachers in
an era already beset with
teacher shortages, and touch-
es on barriers like affordable
housing and skyrocketing
construction costs for new
school space.
The amendment, accord-
ing to CEPRI, also adversely
affects less-expensive and


more-effective reform alter-
natives such as improving in-
service training, tightening
tenure requirements or in-
creasing teacher salaries.
"In answer to the question
posed by the Legislature (in
2004)," the report concludes,
"all available data indicates
that implementation of the
Florida Class Size Amend-

PROPERTY from Page 1A


build in North Venice is differ-
ent from the redevelopment
project that has come under
fire at Venice Housing Au-
thority. GCCFV wants to build
workforce housing, and the
public housing complex af-
fects low-income and afford-
able housing units. ,
Housing terminology can
be confusing, because many
terms are defined differently
by different agencies. Some
terms have specific income
guidelines, while others do
not..
Because of this, the follow-
ing numbers are simply a
guideline. Specific income
restrictions are established by
the individual local, state,


federal or social service
agency:
Median family income
- The "middle income," not
the average, which is found
after dropping off the highest
and lowest salaries. Sarasota
County's median family in-
come is $54,000 a year, ac-
cording to Venice Housing
Authority.
Low-income housing -
A family must make 35 per-
cent or less of the area's medi-
an family income to qualify.
That amount is $18,900 in
Sarasota County; all 50 VHA
units are dedicated to this
category.
Affordable housing -
Sixty percent or less of medi-


an income, that is, $32,400.
Current VHA units can be
used for this category, but
low-income applicants are
given preferred considera-
tion.
Workforce housing -
There are no "official" guide-
lines for this, but it typically
relates to people who make
80 percent $43,200 a year
- of median family income.
VHA does not have any work-
force housing, while GCCFV's
development would start at
this level.
Creating housing
Venice has not decided
how it will address the hous-
ing issue within the compre-


hensive plan. Escalating land
costs draw the most blame for
housing prices going sky
high.
The four most popular
ideas being kicked around in
the city planning department
to create more affordable
housing are:
Deals like the GCCFV
agreement.
Allowing more-intense
density (living units per acre),
but restricting the square
footage per unit. The theory is
that smaller living areas will
reduce the price of a unit.
Forcing developers to
dedicate a specific number of
living units for affordable/
workforce housing. Black


fears stipulations like these
can lead to legal challenges.
Forcing developers to pay
a "luxury tax" for high-priced
units. This money will then go
toward creation of affordable
or workforce housing.
There are plenty of chal-
lengers to the density issue.
Venice's maximum density is
18 units per acre, among the
lowest in Sarasota County.
The Sarasota City Com-
mission heard a report about
allowing 50-200 units per
acre, as long as it was for
affordable housing.
No matter what, the city
manager believes Venice resi-
dents have to be willing to
exceed 18 living units per acre


in order to create more af-
fordable housing. A recent
rezoning request granted in
the Historic Apartment Dis-
trict went from 13 units an
acre to 18 units an acre.
Despite being at maxi-
mum density and only 45 feet
tall, the developer admits the
asking price for his 1,700-
square-foot and larger con-
dominiums begins at
$750,000.
"For us to provide 18 units
an acre, we're kidding our-
selves if we think that'll pro-
. vide affordable housing,"
Black said.

Volunteers sought to mark storm drains
Sarasota County is seeking volunteers to mark drains for its Storm Drain Mark-
ing Program. The goal is to raise community awareness about the pollutants that
find their way into the county's stormwater system, and eventually into the bay.
People can pollute stormwater when they dump, spill or improperly dispose
of substances such as automobile fluids and yard and animal waste.
To remind residents of the importance of clean stormwater, the county has
begun placing drain markers at the entrance of storm drains in several com-
munities. The first of these efforts is in the neighborhoods surrounding Hudson
Bayou. Volunteers will begin marking approximately 450 drains around the
Hudson Bayou basin in mid-April.
Each marker bears the phrase, "No dumping!" in both English and Spanish
and will be permanently affixed to the curb.
For more information on the program or to volunteer, contact the Sarasota
County Call Center at (941) 861-5000 and ask for Water Resources.
Ribbon-cutting event set for Myrtle Street
A ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate completion of a major road improvement
project, Myrtle Street from Booker Middle School to U.S. 301, is scheduled at 10
a.m. Thursday, April 6, at the school, 2250 Myrtle St. The road opened March 29.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held under the portico in front of the
school, with the actual cutting of the ribbon on the nearby roadway, which will be
closed briefly for the event The Booker High School Jazz Band is scheduled to
perform. The event is free, and open to the public.
Under the $3.4 million project, two new segments of road were constructed
and another section of roadway was widened. The project included roadway
lights, new traffic signals, sidewalks, turn lanes and a new pedestrian bridge.

Starting school later sounds good, but...


I f you ask students, they would tell you
there is no good time for school to
start. Many of them would likely put off
the annual start of school as long as they
could.
Sen. Gwen Margolis, D-Bay Harbor
Islands, and Rep. Dan Gelber, D-Miami
Beach, have introduced bills that would
require all school districts to begin classes
no earlier than a week before Labor Day.
The push for a standard opening date
was spurred by parents who complain
about the lack of time for summer vacations
and camps and the need for students to
work summer jobs. Also, when Miami-Dade
and Broward counties opened class Aug. 8
in 2005 and considered an Aug. 9 start for
2006-2007 it got everyone's attention.
Most of us can remember the joy of
school letting out during the final days of
May. And we might also recall the say-good-


bye-to-summer feeling we had when Labor
Day outings signaled it was time to return to
class.
Nowadays, however, students cannot
look forward to winding down their sum-
mers during the dog days of August. For
them, that is a signal to go to the store and
stock up on school supplies.
Most blame the early-August starts on
school districts wanting the extra days to
prepare students for the Florida Compre-
hensive Assessment Test.
This is just one more reason not to like
the standardized tests.
We have criticized the way the state
uses FCAT results to punish poor-perform-
ing schools financially. Because of that, too
many schools build their classes around
studying FCAT topics and put too much
emphasis on schooling students on the best
approach to successfully taking the test.


With that said, there are some good rea-
sons not to make the proposed change,
including:
The idea of the Legislature taking con-
trol of local school calendars away from the
school district is distasteful.
If high schools did not start until seven
days before Labor Day, that could be as late
as Aug. 31. Students who are dual enrolled
in college courses would be handicapped
since community colleges are required to
begin fall semester classes within three
days of Aug. 22. Those students would either
miss a week of college classes or have to
report early.
To get in the required 90 days of in-
struction before the end of the first semester,
schools would have to schedule semester
exams a week or so after the winter vaca-
tion. Studies provide evidence that students
perform poorly on tests after a long layoff.


Also, the semester exams would come just a
week or two before FCAT begins (although
we believe that date could be altered).
The proposed legislation does not
address the calendar for year-round
schools.
We like the idea of students being able
to enjoy a full summer vacation. Florida's
multibillion-dollar tourism industry likes
the idea too, as theme parks and restaurants
are among a number of industries that
rely on teenage workers to bolster staffs
during the busy summer months. But those
are adult problems.
We would favor a compromise that
would give local school districts a window
of three to four days to start the school
year and hope that the date would be closer
to Labor Day, but not so late as to interfere
with semester exam schedules or dual en-
rollment programs.


Kind of like



deja vu again


BOB VEDDER

-, _.a .- .. -* .... . j. k

In 1988 a group of South
County leaders identified an
opportunity to improve tour-
ism in South County. The
thought was to build a base-
ball complex for a major
league team.
The group had identified
parcels of land that would
work well for this and even
had a couple of teams that
were interested in coming to
this garden spot. Baseball was
quite popular and with the
Rangers in Port Charlotte and
the White Sox and Pirates
nearby, it made for easy travel
to play.
We had talked to two
teams in particular. The
Cleveland Indians were one
target team because our area
was known as a haven for
Midwesterners, especially
lots of people from the
Cleveland area and Ohio in
general. The other team that
was very interested was the
Baltimore Orioles, who had
done some training at Twin
lakes.
Getting support was not
particularly easy. The project
was going to be a $10 million
investment certainly less
than the new $150 million
project that is planned for
the fairgrounds. Our South
County commissioner at the
time, Bob Anderson, was
against it but the rest of the
commission favored the pro-
ject.
However the Convention
and Visitors Bureau was
against the project and gave
many reasons. For one, they
had statistics that showed
there was little economic
benefit from a major league
team.
Part of the logic was they
were only at a facility for a
couple of months and minor
league teams don't draw. The
months they were here were
when the hotels, condos and
such were already full, so they
didn't see much revenue gain.
Our group had felt and
other communities had
shown that there was in fact
a benefit.
This seemed to be one of
those projects that you could
throw numbers out there
and argue any side you
wanted.


The bureau also felt that if
tax money were diverted to
baseball benefiting the com-
munity a couple of months a
year, it would take away from
the chance to have a con-
vention site that would have
potential for year-round ben-
efit and that would not be
lining a rich baseball owner's
pocket. There was some
logic to that argument.
On top of this negative,
the., Sarasota Chamber of
Commerce was not in favor.
They saw this as bad for busi-
ness in Sarasota. They felt it
would detract from the draw
of the White Sox and would
hurt business. These may
have been the same people
that said there is no north-
south division.
Nonetheless, the project
had support from the county
commission. The only prob-
lem was that in order to get
funding from the tourist tax
it required a vote of the
public and with most organi-
zations in Sarasota against
South County and our own
commissioner against the
project, it seemed fruitless to
proceed.
Now, out of the clear blue
Sarasota County has devel-
oped a $150 million plan that
would take over the fair-
grounds for a new complex
for the Cincinnati Reds as
well as replace the aging
Robarts arena.
It seemed like a middle-
of-the-night strike, as plans
were shown around Talla-
hassee where they are look-
ing for money. Unfortunately,
no one around here knew a

It is fun that they have
couched this as a way to get

fordable housing when we
find a way to get apartments
built, not replaced by condos.

Editor:
It's useless to write about future hurricane predictions
because politicians, planners, public works employees, tax
collectors, community leaders and bankers, do not read it or
act upon it.
Eight major Florida hurricanes in past two years and
presently not one hurricane shelter improvement proposal,
addition or any evacuation means or route added. Why raise
fears when non-leaders have no "fear themselves to fear."
None of the 7 million square feet of county school space
has been hurricane upgraded. No evacuation roads added,
proposed or planned roads, that take nine years now, per
commissioner Staub, with road costs escalating yearly and
taking 15 years, per Jim Ley.
With four hurricanes per year, it would take us through
28-60 storms before a not-yet-prioritized evacuation route
is a reality. Meanwhile, disaster hearings, during which our
fearless leaders may take full responsibility, but no account-
ability, or remedy for it.
Fact: Only multiple-use buildings are cost effective hurri-
cane shelters. If leadership can't create public shelters, how
about if we keep some of our property taxes to fortify our
homes as hurricane shelters for our infirm, elderly, and scoot-
er, wheelchair and transportation handicapped neighbors,
and even pets?
Which contractor wouldn't rush out under this tax holiday
to hurricane-proof our debt-mortgaged abodes? We might
even keep our valuables. Insurance rates might fall. Mort-
gages might get paid. Then this paper and I would no longer
have to write about hurricanes.
Our fearless leaders would not have to read this, and they
could go back to plugging 15-year growth roads.

LET 'EM HAVE IT!





Let's save the diner, too


Preserving history. I just happen to be standing here ad-
miring the beautiful historic home that was moved from one
part of town over toward city hall. I'm going to suggest some-
thing kind of unique. There is a historic diner sitting next to
the Venice hospital. That's unique and historic in its own way.
Historic can be anything unique. Why don't they preserve
that, pick it up and bring it over, park it right next to the
beautiful yellow home here on the lot next to city hall? It
would be beautiful to see a variety of types of history.


Not cute. This is for the per-
son who came down Tarpon,
put a computer monitor on
top of the paper box and left it
three days ago. It's not cute. It
just goes to show where your
priorities lie. I hate to see your
house if you could do that.
And you have to be an adult
cause it wasn't a little kid on a
tricycle. It was an automobile,
pulled up, put the monitor on
top of the box. This is Sunday
and it's still sitting there.
Shame on you. Shame on
you. I hope they get the num-
bers off of it and trace it back
to you.
Killing the illusion. To the
question should smoking be
banned at public beaches,
the answer is obviously no.
They've the chased the smok-
ers everywhere around. Fin-
ally the only place left is out-
side. Why would anybody
ban smoking outside? Cer-
tainly it's a stretch to even
argue anything about
second-hand smoke, which
by itself is a myth. So I say
banning smoking at the
public beaches just further
kills the illusion we live in a
free society.
Traffic jam. I guess I hit a
few nerves about the parents
picking up children at the
school and creating a traffic
jam. First of all, I do not live
on the island. I read the article
in the Gondolier Sun and saw
the picture in the paper of all
the cars picking up the chil-
" dren. I have four wonderful
grown children and six grand-
children. I know everyone is
tired of hearing this remark,
but my kids always walked to
school. I worked also, but was
home when they got there
with a nice glass of milk and
cookies, homework to follow
and no TV or X-boxes until
after dinner. And the person
who said children get in trou-
ble on the bus, you're right
because they cannot get rep-
rimanded by school authori-
ties. Do they get any punish-
ment at home? I doubt it.
Shouldn't the school find its
own way to deal with this?
Most of our children are doing
badly at school and now the
schools want more money so
they can educate your chil-


dren better. After my 71 years
on this Earth, I know we have
some quality students who
will run this wonderful free
country we live in, and I thank
the parents who will help
them achieve this.
Redirect energy. I'm a mid-
dle-aged man. Recently I was
riding my bicycle down one
of the more quiet streets in
South Venice a street where
there's probably no more than
two to four cars per hour.
Pretty much a leisurely ride,
taking my time, aware of
what's going on around me. I
came up to an intersection
and slowed down, but did not
completely stop and kept
going through the intersec-
tion after I was sure there
were no cars coming. A coun-
ty employee on a bicycle
stopped me and gave me a
hard time about not stopping

after these ongoing actions.

to run from the law, nor have
I. Only the lawless may be
hunted in this fashion. We

.Just as much. I read with
great interest the announce-
ment of the newest inductees
into the Venice Sports Hall of

with any of the 2006 in-
ductees, one question leaps
to mind. How in the world
can there be four classes put
into the sports hall of fame for
Venice, yet no Terry Tritschler?
It boggles my mind. He has
done just as much, if not
more, for the city of Venice,
and for sports in the city of
Venice than just about any-
body else, if not anybody else
currently in or future will be
in the hall of fame.

Last year you were calling

that a hurricane had hit the
city and his fault that a years'-

you even suggested he had
dynamited those levees. It
was his racism that had left so
many people clinging des-
perately to rooftops and
sharks eating those in the
floodwaters.
Well, recently a dam failed
in Hawaii, a typhoon hit
Australia and an Alaskan oil
pipeline broke, and not one
peep from any of you about
the culpability of the presi-
dent in any of these inci-

Alabama mad cow is Florida concern


BY ROBERT BOWDEN
STAFF WRITER


When an Alabama cow
died of mad-cow disease two
weeks ago, red flags went up
in the border state of Florida.
Previously, cows with the
fatal disease had been found
in Washington (brought there
from Canada) and Texas.
Where the Alabama cow
came from is still anyone's
guess, but it was about 10
years old, the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture says.
That's old by cow standards
and it means that as a calf,
this cow could have eaten
feed containing parts of
slaughtered cows.
In an attempt to add pro-
tein to cattle feed, someone
came up the idea of using
unused parts of slaughtered
cows. The vegetarian creature
thus became an unnatural
cannibal consuming the
brains and spinal cords of its
own kind.
:The use of any mam-
malian content in cattle feed
was banned in 1997.
Despite the Alabama dis-
covery, state and local experts
say there is little reason to be.
concerned by America's third
confirmed case of the brain-


wasting disease that can be
passed to humans under
some circumstances.
So far, they say, it isn't an
American problem.
In England, the disease has
killed about 190 people.
Worldwide, the total is about
200.
The only confirmed Amer-
ican death was 25-year-old
Charlene Singh of Fort Lau-
derdale. Even though Singh
moved from England to the
United States 13 years before
she died, health authorities
concluded she contracted the
disease before she came to
this country.
Singh died June 21, 2004,
only three years after the first
symptoms of the condition
were expressed. In humans,
the disease is called Creutz-
feldt-Jakob disease. Author-
ities believe Singh ate tainted
cow brain in England.
Jim Selph, a University of
Florida agricultural extension
agent, said the likelihood of a
person or a cow getting
what he prefers to call BSE
(bovine spongiform enceph-
alopathy) is "infinitesimally
small."

man for the Florida Depart-

Consumer Affairs, agrees.
"There's a much greater
risk just driving your car," he
said.
One reason the two con-
sider the risk low is that in
1997, the USDA had a law
enacted that stopped the
practice of putting slaugh-
tered cows in cow feed. Cows
that have died of mad-cow
disease to date could have
consumed feed before the law
banned brain and spinal cord,
Selph noted.
"And times have changed,"
he added. "When a cow was
slaughtered, my grandmother
used to eat brains and eggs.
And they still do that in
England, for instance. But it's
not done here very often
now."
BSE, or mad cow, is not a
virus or bacteria and it can't
be killed by cooking. It's
passed in a rogue protein
called a prion. Prions from
consuming a mad cow travel
slowly to the human brain,
where they attach and begin"
to bore holes. -
At that point, the person
will begin suffering loss of
memory, physical capabilities
and even personality. It will
only get worse until the
inevitable death. There is no

treatment.
Both Selph and McElroy
point to measures Florida
takes to assure suspect cows
never enter the human food
chain. Tests are routinely con-
ducted, they argue. Florida
has recently tested 3,764 cows
for the disease. No mad cow
was found. And slaughter-
houses are regulated and
overseen by the USDA.
That supervision hasn't
stopped more than 1,000 vio-
lations of the law from occur-
ring, however. Violations
found in USDA documents
were recorded in 35 states,
Puerto Rico and the Virgin
Islands. Some plants were
repeat offenders.
The number of violations
alarmed countries such as
Japan, that import American
beef. A recent violation caus-
ed Japan to ban American
beef after veal containing
spinal column was found in
meat imported there.
And in Canada, a new
nmad-cowv caie was found in 9a
cow borfi well after the feed
ban was enacted indicat-


ing to scientists that a viola-
tion of the ban had occurred.
Someone broke the law.
Last year, the USDA said it
tested more than 300,000 ani-
mals for the disease, but fol-
lowing the Alabama discov-
ery, that agency proposed
cutting back examinations to
40,000 tests a year.
That so angered a Kansas
City slaughterhouse that it
filed suit last week against the
USDA. The slaughterhouse
wants to test each cow before
slaughter and says the USDA
won't allow it. In court docu-
ments, the slaughterhouse
says the USDA "has sole
authority over the sale and
use of (mad-cow) tests."
If every cow was tested, it
would add 10 cents per
pound to the cost of beef, the
suit says. And it would ensure
consumers and importers
that all beef is safe.
Selph said that while he
sees little health threat from
mad cow, he thinks a long
term answer is mandatory.
animal identification with
traceback capabilities. If that


were in place, he said, the
Alabama cow's history would
have been known quickly.
And he said he advises cat-
tlemen here not to keep cows
alive more than nine or 10
years.
With each passing year,
Selph said, the threat of
expanded cases of mad cow
will decrease.

Indian bats explode on hapless Southeast


Venice still in the hunt for top seed in District 12. -.j: --- : ..


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Like the weather, the
Venice High varsity baseball
team is starting to heat up.
For the second straight
game, the Indians registered
double figures in hits and
runs.
This time, visiting
Southeast was the victim
Friday night in an 11-1 ball-
game that went just six
innings because of the mercy
rule.
Venice has crawled back to
.500 at 9-9, but more impor-
tant, the Indians are now 8-4
in Class 5A District 12 play.
Next week will be key as far as
district tournament seeding
goes.
"We want to be the top
seed," Venice coach Craig
Faulkner said. "Manatee has
three losses in the district, but
they could lose again. We
have a very tough week com-
ing up three games on the
road all against good teams. If
we play well, we'll have a
chance."
Venice is at Lakewood
Ranch on Tuesday, Bayshore
on Thursday and Charlotte
on Friday.
Winless Southeast, 0-17
overall and 0-11 in district,
played pretty decent ball for


four innings. The Seminoles
only trailed 2-1.
But the Venice bats explod-
ed in the fifth and sixth
innings, turning the tight
game into a laugher.
The Indians finished with
13 hits. Red-hot Joe Salomone
led the hit parade with two
singles and a double. Jordan
Lucas had'a triple and single.
Pete Hernandez had a double
and single. Trevor Pelletier
had a couple of singles.
A seven-run fifth inning
broke the game wide open.
Mike Atamanchuk started it
off with a single. Ryan
Anderson beat out a bunt sin-
gle. Both Anderson and pinch
runner Donnie Albert moved
up a base on a balk. Chris
Atamanchuk drew a walk
from right-hander Carlos
Yancy to load the bases.
Jeremie Cook's grounder to
first was bobbled, the error
bringing in the first run of the
inning. Salomone then
ripped a long, two-run dou-
ble to right-center to make it
5-1. Cook scored on a wild
pitch. Lucas followed with an
RBI infield single to run the
scoreboard to 7-1.
Hernandez hammered a
RBI double off the left field
wall and eventually scored on
a wild pitch to make it 9-1.
Venice scored twice in the


sixth to end it. Cook had a sin-
gle and went to second on
Salomone's third hit of the
night. Cook came around on
an error on a ball hit by Lucas.
Hernandez ended it with a
single down the left field line.
Josh Struble started for
Venice and allowed three hits
over five innings. He strug-
gled at times, but the defense
bailed him out.
Two errors and a walk
loaded the bases with no one
out in the top of the second.
Catcher Salomone made a
nice grab of a foul ball for the
first out. A double play
grounder to second baseman
Chris Atamanchuk to short-
stop Lucas to first baseman
Mike Atamanchuk got Venice
out of the frame with no harm
done.
Jason Kaufman pitched the
sixth, striking out two of the
three batters he faced.
Venice broke a 1-1 tie with
a run in the fourth. Lucas
tripled to center and scored
on a single up the middle by
Brett Holte.

Workhorse Boyts rises to occasion for Lady Indians


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


The jump from high school
baseball to softball has been
an eye-opener for Pete
Dombroski.
"In baseball, we worried
about using a pitcher too
much," said Dombroski,
who coached junior varsity
baseball at Venice High for 15
years. "He would be on a
pitch count and have to get
three or four days rest. Then I
come over to softball, and
here you can use same pitch-
er every night."
Blessed with two outstand-
ing gunslingers, VHS coaches
Larry Sandburg and
Dombroski haven't had to
resort to that.
But when Heather Laird
missed last weekend's Spring
Fling Tournament in Brandon
because of a classroom trip,
Sandburg and Dombroski
had little choice but to hafid
the ball over to Heather Boyts.
The senior responded by
tossing a perfect game the
first game of the tourney.
Boyts would go on to win two
other games and save anoth-
er as the Lady Indians took
home the first place trophy.
Boyts improved her per-
sonal record to 8-1 for the
Lady Indians, who are ranked
third in Class 5A.
To say Boyts is a workhorse
would be an understatement.
"I pitched five games in
one day in travel ball a couple
of years ago," she said. "I
always wanted to pitch. I
started when I was 8 years
old. I remember pitching up
against a wall. As a pitcher,
you have control of the game.
I like that."


Boyts honed her talents in
Miss Venice Fastpitch and the
Venice Vipers travel team. She
credits Vipers coach Dave
Coates with helping her with
fundamentals.
"He taught me how to
pitch," Boyts said.
Boyts was serious about
her softball, playing with the
Lady Bombers in Clearwater
her freshman year in high
school. The travel ball sea-
soned her for high school.
"High school is a lot differ-
ent than travel," she said.
"Travel ball is a lot more com-
petitive."
Boyts pitched on the VHS
junior varsity her freshman
and sophomores years.
"I remember. Danielle
Durham was on the varsity,"
Boyts said. "She impressed
me. She threw real hard."
Boyts finally got the
chance to show her stuff on
the varsity last year. She
remembers pitching against a
lot of tough teams.
"I lost a lot of one-run
games," she recalled.
Her senior season got off to
a rocky start with a home loss
to Riverview.
"My finger was cut and
bleeding, and it bothered me.
I wasn't throwing the way I
usually do," she said.
There was also an adjust-
ment with the pitching rub-
ber, now 43 feet from home
plate as opposed to 40 feet in
,the past.
"I had to bring my pitches
up more," she said. "I was
used to having my pitches
break at 40 feet. Now there's
three more feet. I had to
adjust."
Boyts, who says she has
been clocked at 63 mph, has


at least five pitches fast-
ball, change-up, curve, rise
and drop.
"My fastball sinks," she
added.
Boyts has gotten better as
the season has progressed.
She had a stretch when she
fired a no-hitter against
Manatee, and then in her next
outing the perfect game over
Brandon High.
She knows the Lady Indian
defense is a big part of her
success.
"Our defense is awesome,"
Boyts said. "My Lady
Bombers coach, Tom Stager,
always said defense wins
games."
When Boyts is not pitch-
ing, she heads to right field.
"I feel just as comfortable
with Heather Laird on the
mound," Boyts said. "We
want to go to states. I think we
have a good chance. We can't
let down. We have to play well
in the district and region."
After high school, Boyts
will continue her softball
career at Florida Tech in
Melbourne. She has been told
she will be a starting pitcher
with the Lady Panthers.
"I like it," Boyts said. "It's a
small school and it has what I
want to study forensic
psychology."

Busy congresswoman still loves to play golf


With a drop in handicap
that would make most golfers
reach for the smelling salts,
Rep. Nancy Detert remains
resolutely in love with the
game of golf.
Speaking to her by phone
as she made her way back to
Tallahassee and her day job,
in the House of Rep-
resentatives, her attitude to
the trials and tribulations of
the game was simple "I do
love the game of golf."
Not an unusual admission,
you might think considering
this is a woman who shot off
10 in her heyday, and became
a student of the game in an
unlikely way.
"It's interesting," she says,
"because I come from a fami-
ly of five kids. I was always
helping my mom do the
household chores. But my
brother was a caddy at the
Park Ridge Country Club (in
the suburbs of Chicago) and I
thought, 'that seems a lot
more glamorous than cutting
the grass and doing the dish-
es,' I remember being in mid-
dle school and reading golf
books -- I was curious about
the sport. It always seemed to
me the golf courses looked so
pretty, and I wondered how
that worked."
Even at that time her polit-
ical future was assured -
Park Ridge is "where Hillary
Clinton's from. She lived
about a mile from me. I don't
think she has taken up the
game, though."
The ex-First Lady's loss
then ...
Despite her brother's
potential influence, Detert
admits her first appearance
on the fairways had to wait
until she met her husband.
"I really didn't start playing
until I got married and we
moved to Indiana. We lived
near a very nice, inexpensive
country club. They had a lot
of family activities, and I
started out in a nine-hole
ladies league. But I didn't even

T


own my own clubs then, I just
hired them. Thankfully, by the
time we left a decade later, I
owned my own clubs with
persimmon-head woods."
And does she miss the
wooden days?
"Oh, yeah," she says. "They
were classy. I still miss that
sound of wood hitting the ball
from the tee."
From there, it was roller-
coaster ride that led to Venice.
"Even back in the late '70s,
Florida was the golf capital of
the USA, and that's why I
moved here. Before that, my
husband and I lived in
Indiana. Now most of the year
it's terrible weather up there.
But in the summer, we
worked all week and looked
forward to a round or two
during the weekend. So on a
Friday evening, we would be
watching the evening news
and the weather forecaster
would say, 'Well, here comes
our weekend spoiler.' '
Not too much golf, then?
"We finally concluded,
'Why are we living in this
state?'"
Having arrived in Venice in
the late '70s, it wasn't long
before she had made her
mark on the local scene.
"I was a champion at
Jacaranda Golf Club," she
says proudly.
The club, a nine-hole
course back then, was the
first she and her husband
joiried and soon became


home away from home.
"I was a 10-handicap then.
I played in the Tuesday
women's League and again on
Friday with some friends and
in a Sunday couples league
with ,my husband. At that
time, I was just a mom, but
we had some fun."
As with most golfers,
embarrassing moments are
aplenty, so I had to ask what
was her most frightening fair-
way moment?
"Oh, that's easy," she said.
"I'm pretty straight down
the middle. But a few years
ago, I was playing in a two-
day tournament in Port
Charlotte in the A Flight. I was
leading after the first day I
think I shot 82. But the during
second day's play. I lofted a
ball straight into a palm tree
- I don't think it ever came
out and shot 110 and lost."
Although she shoots off 24
now, her determination
remains the same. In fact, the
game has taken on a new
dimension in the Detert fam-
ily.
"My whole family plays
golf now. In fact, my youngest
son is the course superinten-
dent at the Plantation Golf &
Country Club. Sometimes,
when I have some free time,
he's nice enough to take me
out there."
But free time has, for a long
time, been hard to find.
"I used to be in a
Wednesday League, but my
partners always quit because
I didn't show up enough.
Unfortunately, I've got a hec-
tic schedule, so I don't play as
often as I would like."
"But we have some great
courses," she continued.
"Personally, I like Calusa
Lakes. It's a good golfers
course. Waterford is probably
more for the tourists because
almost every hole would
make a pretty picture, and
Capri Isles seems to have
been taking care of locals for-
dver; They don't evim to lose


their members. But I'll always LAKE VENIC

Join the book

discussion

Roland Marcotte invites
you to read Connie May
Fowler's "Remembering Blue"
and join a book discussion at
the Venice Public Library on
Apr 5 at 2 p.m. Register at 861-
1331.
This fictional book was
chosen for 2006 One Book
One Community Events.
Do you watch DIY?
If you are hooked on the
DIY channel like I am you'll
be pleased to know it has a
Venice connection. Robyn R.
Ulrich, senior vice president
of marketing for the company
is the daughter of Audrey
Rice, rear commodore at the
Venice Yacht Club.
The talented Robyn helped
launch Home and Garden TV
and now continues to work
her way up the ladder with
the organization.
Happy anniversary
Celebrating 20 years of love
are Kathy and John Lehner.
Kathy is chair of the board of
directors at the Venice Cham-
ber of Commerce. This happy
couple enjoys their special
early morning breakfast dates
around town and spending
time together.
19 years and counting
Jim Gilmour came to Ven-
ice to open the wonderful Ja-
cobson's store in Osprey. He
said in those days their goal
was to buy quality merchan-
dise in limited quantities.
When the store closed, Jim
began playing the piano and
entertaining folks at the Ven-
ice Yacht Club. He's now been
doing it for 19 years. He said
many former Jacobson's cus-
tomers still come up and tell
him how much they miss that
store.
College friends
Liz Van Buren and her
friend Nancy Wenger met at
Juniata College in Pennsyl-
vania many years ago and
maintain a long distance rela-
tionship. When Nancy was in
town recently she and Liz
enjoyed a wonderful evening
of music at the Church of the
Nazarene at a Venice Sym-
phony concert.

PO ,-RTS OF JO GIORGIANN1


A fish printed by Bernice Giorgianni, using the Gyotaku technique.


BY JOE GIORGIANNI
CORRESPONDENT


Nature, painting is not
painting au natural.
If it is not painting in the
nude, then you might be
wondering just what the heck
is nature painting?
Actually, nature painting is
about producing images of
the wonderful things found in
nature.
The story begins way back
in the 17th or 18th century.,
Printers of the time made
futile attempts to print im-
ages of plants directly onto
various media, such as paper
or wood, but found the sub-
ject matter far too fragile.
Then in the 19th century, a
printer by the name of Alois
Auer, who just happened to
be the director of government


printing in Vienna, developed
a -successful technique con-
sisting of pressing an object
to be reproduced between
two plates, one made of steel,
the other of lead. With exces-
sive pressure placed on both
plates, the object being com-
pressed would become em-
bedded into the lead plate,
which was softer than the
steel plate, leaving an im-
print, from which copies
could be made. Ink would be
applied to the lead printing
plate to generate printed
copies of the object.
Today, and for the past 30
years, nature painting has
taken different and multiple
directions as artisans discover
new techniques. The new
techniques allow not only
images of plants and their
roots to be transferred to such


media as paper, wood and
clothing, but other interesting
subject matter such as insects
and even spider webs.
As if leaves and plants
aren't enough, old techniques
such as Gyotaku, or fish print-
ing, are being rediscovered.
Gyotaku is a Japanese word
for a technique used cen-
turies ago in the Orient as a
means of recording one's
catch of the day. A Gyotaku
was created by pressing rice
paper onto a fish covered
with ink or paint.
Remember that fishermen
lie pictures don't.
Today, Gyotaku flourishes
as a modern-day art form that
utilizes fish and other forms
of sea life.
In 1976, the Nature Paint-
ing Society was founded,
eventually growing to be-


come an international orga-
nization devoted to nature
and to the art of printing
those objects that occur in
nature.
In the Venice-Nokomis
area, there are several talent-
ed nature printers including
Teri Janssen, Heidi Marie
Whittman, Donna Davis;
Tanya Heurlin; Cynthia
(Candy) Smith and Bernice
Giorgianni. These six are part
of The Selby Gardens Nature
Printers, a group associated
with the Marie Selby Botan-
ical Gardens in Sarasota. They
meet monthly, from October
through March at Selby
Gardens, conducting work-
shops involving various na-
ture printing projects. Each
year the Selby group hosts a
major display featuring work
by group members. The event


is held at Selby Gardens in
early April.
This year's event, the 12th
Nature Printer's Exhibition,
will be April 4-6 at Selby
Gardens, 811 S. Palm Ave.,
Sarasota. The event is free
with regular admission to
Selby and many of the items
in the show will be for sale. In
conjunction with the show,
there will be workshops and
visitors to the show will be
able to meet the artists and
engage in conversation about
the intricacies of capturing
nature as art.

garding nature printing class-

Shelley at 366-5731, Ext. 239.

There's joy to be found outdoors


LARRY ALLAN
FRESH AIR COLUMNIST

One of the great joys of
being an animal photograph-
er and an environmental
advocate is the occasional
opportunity to observe en-
dangered or threatened
species as they go about their
everyday lives. I hope my
grandchildren have this same
opportunity, but I can't help
question whether or not
they'll have the same success
seeing endangered or threat-
ened species outside of zoos
I've had. I pray they will.
I remember just as if it
were yesterday my first
encounter with a gray wolf. I
was in a forested area in
northwestern Montana, right
near the Canadian border. I
found an animal trail that
showed signs of being used by
wolves. I set up my equip-
ment.
Wolves are social. They live
and hunt in packs of two to
15, which are usually an
extended family unit (often a
mating pair and a generation
or two of their offspring). The
pack is dominated by one
animal, described as the
alpha individual. At that time,
it was believed that the alpha
was always a male. My
encounter, and other later
finding-., have proven that


sometimes the alpha individ-
ual in a pack is female.
It was this alpha female
(and she was clearly in
charge) who came down that
trail first. She stopped as soon
as she became aware of me,
as if she were posing for pic-
tures (which she was actually
doing). I snapped happily
away. She was a gorgeous sil-
ver animal, with a sleek and
shiny coat. Intelligence was
clearly behind those mar-
velous yellow eyes!
Eventually, I began to talk
to her, as I might talk with my
own dog. She was attentive -
and wary.
After 20 or 30 minutes, she
moved closer to me. After a
while, she actually sniffed me.
I did not look her in the eye
because I knew that wolves
consider that a threat. And I
was reassured by the knowl-
edge that no human death
had ever been attributed to a
wolf in North America. She
did not act aggressively
toward me at all. She seemed
to acknowledge me, then she
led her pack on down the trail
in a rather rag-tag line. They
were gone.
Today, I think of this alpha
female as Queenie. I had
opportunities to observe
Queenie and her pack on
other days. Believe me,
nobody in that pack ate any-
thing until after she had eaten
her fill. Absolutely no one!
That was my first encounter. I
could go on and on about
other wolves I've encoun-
tered, but that first time-
well, it was really special to
me.
Gray wolves, sometimes
called timber wolves, range in
color from white to black,
including all shades of gray in


between. They're classified as
endangered in almost all of
the lower 48 states except in
Minnesota, where they're
classified as threatened.
I've worked to help reintro-
duce gray wolves into the
Yellowstone area, into Idaho
and the Mexican subspecies
into New Mexico. But Con-
gress is preparing to consider
major changes to the En-
dangered Species Act. This act
has helped us preserve the
bald eagle, grizzly bear and
our own Florida panther, to
name only sonie species. The
animals need your help right
now.
HR 3824, which has been
passed by the House of
Representatives, provides
loopholes making it easier to
use deadly pesticides, pollut-
ing our lands and waters, and
probably our wildlife as well;
requires taxpayers to pay
people not to break the law
and kill endangered species;
and allows federal agencies to
avoid consultation, giving
agencies with little or no
experience the power of deci-
sion over wildlife-related
issues.
Let your senators and rep-
resentative know you oppose
this weakening of the vital
Endangered Species Act.
Make a difference today.
Extinction is forever!
Our grandchildren deserve
the same right to see North
American wildlife in their nat-
ural habitats, just as-you and I
did. I hope you enjoyed the
experience. I know I've never
forgotten!

iPods and seniors


VIRGINIA DEUPREE



I woke up at 4 a.m. one
morning thinking about what
senior living facilities will be
like for the baby boomers. My
children have told me about
some of the new technology,
and I began trying to picture
what a facility like I live in
might have in the future.
My daughter told me about
heated floors. Older people
are always cold, and imagine
how nice it would be if the
bathroom floor were heated
and covered with some syn-
thetic surface that was not
slippery. When I mentioned
that I would like bright colors
like blue, yellow and orange,
she told me that I could
change the pictures whenever
I wanted with the touch of
a button. When my grand-
daughter and her husband
visited, my pictures could be
of skiing, and when my
grandson visited, they could
be "Star Wars." Favorite aro-
mas could also be created at
the touch of a button.
My daughter-in-law said
each resident could have a
robot. It could get things from
storage, give me my pills and
even bring a meal to me if I
didn't feel like going down for


dinner.
One son said they could
spray a track down the hall-
ways, and motorized wheel-
chairs could follow the track.
Instead of aides having to take
people from their rooms to
activities or meals they could
just put the wheelchair on the
track and push a destination
button. I'd like that!
Walkers would have a
pocket for iPods (you know
what they are miniature
music players), and rooms
would have built-in speakers
and computer networks. A
plasma screen would replace
TVs, and we could choose
slide shows from our favorite
trips to watch or show to our
friends instead of watching
daytime TV all the time. We
could even play games on the
plasma screens since every-
thing would be a lot bigger
and easier for us to see. In
fact, my grandson (who de-
velops computer games) says
we could easily play games
against people in other
rooms, with electronic scor-
ing.
My other son said tele-
phones would be replaced by
wireless ear pieces, making it
easy to answer the phone
from anyplace in the room.
Bathrooms could be self-san-
itizing after each use, and syn-
thetic clothes could be tem-
perature controlled. No more
cold arms or feet. Lights will
be turned on by voice com-
mand instead of switches,
and I could even change the
temperature by voice com-
mand instead of trying to nav-
igate my walker over there.
My granddaughter, who is
building a very modern new


home, said the top of the walls
could be made of innovative,
new translucent materials -
providing a lot more light and
better insulation.
This sounds like so much
fun that I may want to live
another 20 years to experi-
ence it. On second thought, I
guess I'll let my children have
that pleasure.

No interest




for snowbirds


Snowbirds need not read
this. You are getting ready to
leave town when we need you
the most Have a safe trip home.
In.just a few weeks some
neighborhoods and commu-
nities will see upwards of 60
percent of their residents
gone. Some streets will have
only one or two homes occu-
pied and most likely they will
be our oldest residents. There
will be no next-door neighbor
to pick up the newspaper and
check on them.
Who will be there to fix a
leaking toilet or take someone
to the doctor? Who will check
on these elders regularly just
to make sure they are OK?.
These elders do just fine -
most of the time. They have
lived in their homes for many
years and drive only in the day-
time and often take the back
streets to the store. They might
make it to church or synagogue
if they know someone. They are
probably just a little glad you
snowbirds have gone north for
the winter because there is less
traffic and it is safer for them to
drive.
But August rolls around
and a hurricane heads our
way now what happens to
these elders? Some 2,000 are
registered on the Special
Needs list and someone from
the county will come and get
them to a safe place. Many


more have no one to check on
them and could not drive for
hours on Interstate 75 to get out
of town. Do not thinkthat just
because you can make it to
church or the store you are
capable of driving and sitting in
stalled traffic for hours to es-
cape a pending storm. Now is
the time to take a reality check
and get your things ready. Is
there someone to check on
you? Do you check with some-
one else on a regular schedule
to make sure things are OK?
As a neighbor, are you
checking on others? Has your
street or community associa-
tion developed a plan to make
sure people are safe? We are
all shocked when we hear the
report of someone being
found dead in his or her own
home after several weeks. Did
no one care? Of course we
care but we did not have a
plan to check. This becomes
even more vital during some
emergency. It does not have
to be a hurricane.
I was watching a World War
II movie and noted during
scenes of bombing in London
these Neighbor Watch men
and women going around
checking on everyone. We
need to redevelop this pro-
gram here. Why not get in-
volved in your neighborhood
association and help them
start a Neighbor Watch Pro-
gram? You could develop a
telephone tree for that quick
check on someone. But take it
a step further to make sure no
one goes without a visit or
dinner come Passover and
Easter. Protect yourself and be
a good neighbor until the
snowbirds come back to
check on us again.

Getting the right kind



of second opinion


When it comes to your
health, whom you see second
can be as important as what
you do first. Many who get a
diagnosis they don't like won-
der how to learn about treat-
ment options.
For example, cardiologists
treat the heart; urologists,
kidney disease. Interventional
radiologists, however, special-
ize in non-surgical treatments
throughout the body. Getting
a second opinion from a dif-
ferent specialist may help you
make a more informed treat-
ment choice and even save
your life.
Consider the case of David
Hall, who was told by his
oncologist that he had 12 to 18
months to live due to liver can-
cer. On the recommendation,
Hall met with an intervention-
al radiologist and learned of
two new non-surgical treat-
ments that could help. For
nearly six years now, he's been
returning to his interventional
radiologist for non-surgical
"tune-ups" that keep the can-
cer under control.
"Other doctors don't al-
ways know every treatment
we offer, but when they have a

HEARING


By Vicki Connell
M.A., CCC-A |
Certified Audiologist
Q. I will be traveling to
Europe soon and will be
wearing my hearing aids in
the airport and on airplanes.
Can the metal detectors
damage the computers in my
hearing aids?
A. It is not necessary to remove
your hearing aids before
walking through the metal
detectors at security check
points. According to the major
hearing aid manufacturers,
digital hearing aids are not
affected by the x-ray inspection
technology that these devices
use. However, if you are still
concerned or uncomfortable
using the walk through
detectors, then you can request
a physical inspection. In this
case, the security personnel
would use a hand held wand
and a visual inspection to clear
you through security. Your
hearing aids cannot be
damaged by the electronics
used by the airplane so there is
no need to remove your
instruments or shut them off
while on board the plane. It is
important to remember to
equalize the pressure in your
ears upon take-off and landings
by chewing gum or sipping
water. Normally functioning
eardrums should equalize
easily after each decent
(landing). To insure your
eardrum mobility is normal,
you should see your
Audiologist before traveling. If
your test results are abnormal,
your physician can prescribe
medication and nasal spray,
which will prevent your ears
from becoming "blocked-up".
Call the Audiologists at
Woodmere Hearing &
Balance Centers, Inc. 492-
4327 for eardrum mobility
testing before your next fight.

complex patient they need
help with, they give us a call,"
said interventibnal radiolo-
gist Ziv Haskal, M.D. "Our
treatments are not surgery;
we use imaging to guide a tiny
catheter, usually up an artery
or up a vein, to treat at the
source of the disease, inter-
nally. There is no surgical inci-
sion. When we are done, there
is only a band-aid.
Interventional radiologists
are board-certified in diagnos-
tic radiology, with advanced
training in minimally invasive
treatments for an array of dis-
eases and conditions such as
uterine fibroids, pelvic pain,
varicose veins, osteoporotic
fractures, infertility and hard-
ening of the arteries.
Don't be concerned that
asking for a second opinion
will offend your doctor. This is
common practice for anyone


facing serious illness or surg-
ery, and many insurances
require it.
For more information, visit
SIRweb.org.
Checklist
1. Tell your doctor you
would like to get a second
opinion and ask for a referral
to another specialist who
might be able to offer differ-
ent opinions.
2. Visit the American Board
of Medical Specialties at
ABMS.org to learn about dif-
ferent specialties, their train-
ing programs and the find a
board-certified physician.
3. Use medical Web sites
that are HON certified. This
seal ensures the medical
content is physician-re-
viewed and meets the inter-
national eight codes of con-
duct for quality control.

Gone are ,r
the days
when high school
cheerleaders could be expected to
safely shout cheers from the
sidelines. In fact, cheerleaders' risk
for incurring injuries related to their
sport is nearly as high as those of the field and
Court athletes for whom they cheer. According
S to a study that analyzed data over a 13-year
period, an estimated 208,800 children and
young adults between the ages of 12 and 17
were treated in hospitals for cheerleading-related
injuries. Nearly four injuries in ten involved the
leg, ankle, or foot. Needless to say, cheerleading
that involves pyramids and catching of airborne
cheerleaders poses great risks to necks and backs,
as well. Parents and children should be wary of
these risks.
Our highly qualified team specializes in providing
natural, gentle, and thorough treatments for many
common injuries and disorders.
At TWIN PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH CENTER,
you'll find an experienced and helpful staff of health
care professionals dedicated to serving your health
care needs. We're located 1214-C Venice Ave. East,
where, through comprehensive treatments, we can
help you overcome low back pain, neck and
Shoulder pain, headaches, as well as stress-related
problems. Please call 941-412-3800 to schedule
an appointment. Chiropractors facilitate return to
function, assist in pain management, and oversee
rehabilitation. We offer massage therapy and have
4 licensed massage therapists on staff.
P.S. During the 13-year period mentioned
above, cheerleading injuries more than doubled
while participation grew only 18 percent.

Off England's northeast coast,






Holy Island clings to traditional ways


BY JOHN BORDSEN
GUEST WRITER


What's it like to live in a far-
off place most of us see only
on a vacation? Foreign Cor-
respondence is an interview
with someone who lives in a
spot you may want to visit.
Stephen Elliott, 27, is duty
manager for the Manor
House Hotel on Holy Island
also known by its earlier
name, Lindisfarne off the
northeast coast of England.
Around A.D. 700, it was a
remote Christian outpost in
pagan Britain; the illustrated
Lindisfarne Gospels created
there by Bishop Eadfrith is
one of the oldest and greatest
treasures in the United
Kingdom.
The original, in Latin and
Old English, is at the British
Library in London.
Q. How remote is your isle?
A. It's a little island just off
the coast of Northumberland
at a place called Berwick-
Upon-Tweed. Holy Island is
about 15 miles off the coast,


and connected to it by a
causeway.
Q. People drive on a cause-
way over the North Sea? Does it
get dangerous?
A. About 24 cars a year get
stuck there. The drivers were
pretty stupid: They tried to
cross when the tide was high.
The tide comes in quickly,
they were warned, but they
tried to cross anyhow.
The tide varies from week
to week. The highest is about
4.2 meters (13.78 feet).
Q. Can you see mainland
from Holy Island?
A. Not from the hotel, but
from the other side of the
island, you can vaguely see it
on a clear day.
Q. What does the island look
like?
A. Holy Island is reason-
ably flat. There are a few sand
dunes and a bit that's hilly,
but it's mostly flat.
In summer, when the sun
is shining, it's beautiful. It can
get as warm as 83 degrees
Fahrenheit. From our hotel,
you can see the island's har-


bor and the castle. I'm from
the big English city of
Manchester, and moved here
within the past year. Being
here is definitely different.
Very quiet and peaceful,
though it can be busy when
tourists are around. I've
never visited a place like this
before. The view from the
garden in the back of the
hotel is one of the best here.
Q. It's a big tourist area?
A. Oh, yeah. We get about
a million a year, from all over.
It's quite surprising, actually.
We have a couple from Texas
staying with us right now.
Q. What do they come for?
A. Mainly to see the castle
and the priory. The heritage
center on the island is a big
tourist attraction. The her-
itage center tells the history
of the island. It has a Web
site: lindisfarne-heritage-
centre.org.
And people come for the
peace and quiet.
Q. What's the castle like?
A. It was built in the 1500s,
with stones from the priory.


The majority of the castle -
about 75 percent, I'd say- is
still standing. It has a 5-
pound entrance fee (about
$9.14) and is open nine
months of the year. It's sort of
on a hill, a mound if you like.
I think the Vikings used the
hill in their day.
Someone did live in the
castle until 1965, but if you
look at how old the place is,
1965 doesn't seem that long
ago. It's owned by the
National Trust now.
Q. Do the people at the castle
work in costumes?
A. No. There's a tall guide
who sort of dresses up a little,
but not much.
You pay and you wander
around looking at various
rooms.
Q. What is the priory like?
A. It's like a cemetery. It
used to be part of the
monastery before the
Reformation. The priory is
still standing it has a roof
and all that and is also 5
pounds to visit. Lots of peo-
ple go there. It's quite a pop-


ular place.
It's part of why they first
called this Holy Island.
Q. Other things to see and
do?
A. There's not much
nightlife but there are glori-
ous beaches. Depending on
the tide, people can stay the
day if, for instance, the
causeway closes at 10 a.m.
and reopens at 5 p.m., you
can get some coffee and see
the sights.
Q. How many people live
there?
A. 141.
Q. What do they call them-
selves? Lindisfarners?
A. Islanders.
The majority of people
talk in a sort of "Geordie"
accent similar to
Newcastle and other places
in northeast England. The
island is sort of big for com-
mercial fishing haddock,
salmon and so on.
Q. Can you get it in restau-
rants?
A. Yes. We serve fresh local
haddock, with chips and gar-


den peas for 5.95 (about
, $7.25). You can also get a spe-
cial that has a smaller por-
tion for 4.20 (about $5.12). It's
a very popular dish. We prob-
ably go through two stone a
day that's 28 pounds a day.
Q. Two stones! That's an
ancient way to measure things.
Do they still use inches and feet
or have the islanders gone
over to metric?
A. They don't use the met-
ric stuff that much. It's a very -
traditional place. They use
inches for measuring things.
But when we order fish, we
order by the stone.
Q. Given the history of Holy
Island, do you ever get monks
visiting?
A. There's actually a monk
still in the village. He lives in
a place just behind the hotel.
He wears a brown robe and
all that. I've seen him but not
spoken to him.

Great American road trip becomes great American globe trip


STAFF REPORT

Family bonding now hap-
Spens in exotic destinations on
private custom journeys with
H Asia Transpacific Journeys.
SDeveloping critical think-
ing skills, enhancing SAT
scores or simply becoming
well-traveled, whatever the
multiple motives may be, par-
ents and offspring are forag-
ing for culture in far-flung
places never considered for
family vacations a few years
ago.
Asia Transpacific Journeys
:r (ATJ), for example, offers pri-
vate Custom Journeys to
explore bat caves in Borneo,
ride elephants to hill tribes in
Thailand, and ponder the
perils of Captain Hook and
crocodiles in Australia.
J'. Asia Transpacific Journeys,
CEO, Marilyn Downing Staff,
herself a parent, believes that
visiting cultures so different
from the American lifestyle
helps children become global
citizens early on.
** "Children quickly shift
curiosity and concentration
from hand-held electronic
games to the wonders of the
natural world," Staff said.
"Our sensitive and seasoned
guides make extensive use of
nature to lead children into
the hows and whys of particu-
lar histories and cultures. It
works."
Staff recommends the fol-
lowing summer 2006 oppor-
tunities for family travel with
her company:
Borneo
A Wildlife Adventure: Trop-
ical forests lush with wildlife
invite trekking through jungle
trails on wildlife photo safaris.

species of birds and more
than 70 species of frogs, also
hosts mountain squirrels, tree
shrews, and bats, bearded
pigs, maroon-leaf monkeys,
honey bears and orangutans.
Here, too, is the world's largest
pitcher plant that contains
over two quarts of liquid it
can devour a full-grown rat.
Borneo is one of the few
places to see orangutans in
the wild. A visit to the Sepilok
Orangutan Rehabilitation
Center explores how or-
phaned and captive orang-
utans are returned to the wild.
Night walks and passage over


an aerial catwalk can reveal
such national treasures as
Sumatran rhinoceroses and
clouded leopards.

'To d or not to d' and other musings


Something's rotten in Den-
mark.
Last week, several papers
that run this column ran it
with a rather glaring error. See
if you can spot the problem in
the following excerpt.
"In modern journalistic
sources, 'petard' outnumbers
'petar' by a 66-to-1 margin."
Didn't catch it? Let's try
another excerpt from the
same.i column,- inro which; i-


wrote about the expression,
"Hoist with his own petard."
"The expression, which
means 'ruined by one's own
scheming against others,' is
actually a perversion of the
line from 'Hamlet,' 'hoist with
his own petard,' Garner
explains. A petard, it turns
out, was a sort of ancient ex-
plosive used in battle to level
gates and walls."
Still didn't catch it? Then
you may have a promising
future in the exciting field of
newspaper editing. One more
excerpt.
"My spell-checker doesn't
recognize the word 'petard.' It
suggests I use 'petard.' "
That's right. It rhymes with
"retard." And it's the ultimate
irony in a column about
doing oneself in.
The problem is I didn't do
myself in. Somebody's spell-
checker did me in, despite the
elear warning in my column.


about spell-checker's abhor-
rence of the correct word,
which should have appeared
in place of about half the
"petards" you see above.
The correct word has no
"d" at the end. It's P-E-T-A-R.
This d-less word is the one
that appeared in 'Hamlet.'
This d-less word is the one so
rare that 66 out of 67 writers
get it wrong. This d-less word
is the one that never ap-
peared once in some versions


of a column about how it was
the right choice, despite the
fact that it appeared, four
times in the version I turned
in.
There's a crucial lesson to
be learned here: Spell-check-
er is not to be trusted. Sure it'll
do you right 99 times out of
100. But the minute your
guard is down, it'll betray you
faster than Claudius with an

outreach coordinator of
Animal Rescue Coalition, says
a popular misconception is
that ARC's neutering services,
because they are low- or no-
cost, are somehow not as
thorough as stationary clin-
ics. This is definitely not the
case, she states.
"[ARC's mobile] surgical
suite is set up the same as a
stationary clinic would be. All
the animals are given a pre-
med sedative, then an induc-
tion agent to make them
sleepy enough to intubate
(tube in the throat for breath-
ing), then maintained on gas
anesthetic. They are also
given an injection for pain. In
addition, all animals are
hooked up to a monitor
called a pulse oximeter,
which gives the animal's heart
rate, as well as how well the
patient is oxygenating its
blood," says Mayer.
The procedure for cat neu-
tering is similar. "The anesthe-
sia protocolis the same, except
that most don't need to be
intubated, but are still main-
tained on anesthesia. The neu-
tering procedure for cats takes
about three minutes, so they
can use the mask for maintain-
ing the anesthesia."
"In addition to Dr. Heather
Egan," Mayer states, "we have

The doctors bring with
them a wealth of experience.
Dr. Egan is a veterinarian at

takes care of Sarasota K-9
Search and Rescue dogs and
is a member of a Veterinary

(VMAT).
According to Mayer,
"Many people assume that
because [ARC's services are]
free or a reduced-cost service,
corners are cut, but this is
definitely not the case, and
ive \would lo\ e to educate not
only the public, but the rest of
the doctors in the area about
our standard for care."
Some pet owners may not
realize they may be able to
receive ARC's services.
Circumstances that might
qualify them include, accord-
ing to Mayer, "receiving pub-
lic assistance, food stamps or
the free school lunch pro-
gram, or being on disability."

sites throughout Sarasota and

call to volunteer, I don't have
any dogs for people to walk or
cages to clean," says Mayer.

Mayer, "ARC works on popu-

In addition to its mobile

Bronson urges vaccinations as Equine


Encephalitis cases start early in Florida


STAFF REPORT


Florida Agriculture com-
missioner Charles H. Bron-
son is urging horse owners to
vaccinate their horses against
Eastern Equine Encephalitis
(EEE) and West Nile Virus
(WNV) as mosquito season
gets under way. Four cases of
EEE have already been con-
firmed in Florida since
January one as recently as
this week even though the
first cases are not usually seen
until May.
Bronson says the majority
of cases can be prevented
through proper vaccinations
and booster shots against
mosquito-borne illnesses
and he is reminding horse


owners that now is the time to
take action.
"Last year there were 150
reported cases of EEE across
43 counties, triple the num-
ber from the year before,
when 48 cases of the disease
reported, impacting 27 coun-
ties," Bronson said. "Now that
mosquito season is upon us,
it is critical that horse owners
take steps to protect their ani-
mals. We have already seen
some EEE cases due to the
relatively warm winter and
we need to ensure that these
cases are kept to a mini-
mum."
EEE is a viral disease that
affects the central nervous
system and is transmitted to
horses by infected mosqui-


toes. Signs of the virus in-
clude fever, listlessness,
stumbling, circling, coma and
usually death. The disease is
fatal in horses in 90 percent of
the cases.
Bronson says he is
pleased that no cases of
West Nile Virus have been
reported so far this year, and
WNV cases have continued
to drop over the years since
a vaccination against the
disease became available in
2001. "
"There was a lot of atten-
tion paid to West Nile Virus
when it was first discovered in
Florida in 2000. Horse owners
did a very good job in protect-
ing their animals from this
disease. We want to be sure


they are just as aggressive in
protecting horses against
EEE," Bronson said.
The Department and the
state's numerous mosquito-
control districts have stren-
gthened their surveillance,
control and prevention
measures to be better pre-
pared for mosquito-borne
illnesses. There are ongoing
efforts to keep the mosquito
populations down but
because there is no fool-
proof method to prevent the
diseases, vaccinations are
critical.
So far this year EEE has
been confirmed in horses in
Columbia, Duval, Marion
and Levy counties. All of the
cases proved fatal.

WORD fon Page iOB


armload of ear poison.
Spell-checker is particular-
"ly treacherous when dealing
with prefixesand suffixes, For
example, a few months ago I
shared the following quote
from "Bryan Garner of Garn-
er's Modern American Usage"
on the word "hopefully."'
"If you use it in the tradi-
tional way, many readers will
think it odd; if you use it in the
newish way, a few readers will
tacitly tut-tut you."
This prompted the follow-
ing rebuke from a reader:
"Not only am I tut-tutting
you, I'm questioning the
validity of the word newishh.'"
My spell-checker concurs,
screaming its disapproval in


the form of a red line under
newishh."
Both spell-checker and the
reader are operating on the
assumption that, if a word
doesn't appear in the dictio-
nary, it's not valid. But their
logic falls apart when you
actually read the stuff in the
beginning of the dictionary.
"It is possible in English to
create an almost infinite
number of derived forms
simply by adding certain pre-
fixes or suffixes to the base
word," write the authors of
the New World College Dic-
tionary's fourth edition.
So I can legitimately state
that my last column was
petarless even though it


should have been petarful. I
can say it was over-petarded,
which would make a lot of
writers petarish, petarful .nd
petarly. And while I can guar-
antee that all those ridicu-
lous, made-up words are
nonetheless perfectly kosher,
I cannot guarantee that you'll
actually read what I just
wrote. In fact, if my spell-
checker had its way, these
writers would be "bearish,"
"earful" and "pearly."
And speaking of absurdi-
ties in the world of language,
a lot of you who have written
to me over the years to sug-
gest I write a book will be
happy to hear that I did.

image... the viewer must be willing to pause, to look again, to
meditate." Dorothea Lange, Photographer (1895-1965)

Your Office Coach: How to handle a know-it-all buttinski


Q. How do you deal with
a co-worker who has to
be the center of attention?
"Kristen" butts into every
conversation, constantly
talks about herself, and
thinks she's right on every
issue. Then she wonders
why people don't ask her to
go to lunch. Help!
-Tired of Listening
A. Sounds like a bad mix
of personalities: a self-
centered verbal bully and a
bunch of nice, polite folks
who are uncomfortable
taking charge of the situa-
tion. Two choices seem
obvious: either continue to
be victimized by her intimi-
dation tactics or develop a
conversational backbone.
People like this can only


IVMclityle



walk over you if you lie
down in front of them.
To change Kristen's
behavior, you first need to
change your own. When she
butts into the conversation,
butt right back and don't
allow her to take over. If she
inappropriately shifts the
topic to herself, listen
without responding, then
continue on with your
previous discussion.
She always thinks she's


fight? Well, who cares?
Unless the issue directly
affects you, let her think
anything she likes. Don't
waste your time on point-
less debates.
Kristen can only become
the center of attention if
you and your co-workers
put her there. But if you
consistently refuse to yield
the floor, your domineering
colleague will eventually
learn to wait her turn. So
ignore her when she's being
obnoxious, but respond
warmly when she converses
appropriately. And if she
really improves, invite her
to have lunch.
Q. I'm the supervisor of a
team whose work has to be
reviewed by Quality Assur-


ance. The QA guy always
complains to my boss
without coming to me first.
Even though I try to defend
my position, my boss is
starting to question my
ability. The QA guy doesn't
understand what we do, but
he still tells us to redo our
work. This is causing
confusion and wasted effort


on our team. H
this guy to stop
a jerk?

A. Tattletale c

Exactly what standards do
they expect you to meet?
Although QA folks auto-
matically have a somewhat
adversarial relationship
with those they monitor, it
doesn't have to be unpleas-
ant. After all, QA is there for
a reason, and the reviewers
are just doing their job.
When standards are

-Andrea Your best bet is to take

problem First, list the specific areas

management arrange a meeting with the
worker issue. "QA guy and his manager.


When the four of you reach
agreement on a final set of
standards, put them in
writing with copies to
everyone involved.
The tattling also needs to
stop, so during the meeting,
suggest that the QA guy
should come directly to you
with any problems. If the
two of you can't resolve an
issue, then you will involve
your managers.
One more suggestion: Try
not to let your personal
feelings about this irritating
colleague interfere with
your working relationship.
You may not like him, but
you're stuck with him for
now, so you might as well
make it as pleasant as
possible.
