Transportation problems top joint meeting agenda

Disputes? What disputes?
That appears to be the re-
sponse from Sarasota County
when asked about issues on
which the county and city of
Venice don't see eye to eye.
Among them: growth, trans-
portation and the level of ser-
vice in parks.
In the past year, Sarasota


County has questioned the
city's annexation and devel-
opment policies in North
Venice; sent memos to the
state that have delayed com-
prehensive plan approvals
and remains upset enclave
roads on the island were not
annexed into the city.
As for the city, Venice has
accused the county of misal-
locating city impact fee
money, delaying county road


improvements within city
limits and failing to ask for
city input on on East Venice
Avenue development and the
impact of an estimated 12,000
new homes just outside of
citylimits.
County Administrator Jim,
Ley downplayed disagree-
ments between the two gov-
ernment agencies, which will
have a joint meeting at 1 p.m.
Thursday at the Venice Com-


munity Center.
"The meeting is not the
result of disputes, but is a reg-
ular occurrence and one of
several that have been on the
board's agenda the last cou-
ple of. months," Ley said.
"North Port, Sarasota and
Manatee County (have been)

forecast

Landfall chances are high as hurricane season
approaches.


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


With little more than two
months before the next hurri-
cane season, one of the most
respected forecasters is stick-
ing with his expectation that
this year will continue the
trend of busy hurricane sea-
sons.
The forecaster also calls for
a higher than normal proba-
bility of a major hurricane
striking the, U.S. coastline.
This includes a nearly double
chance of a storm hitting the
Florida Peninsula and the
U.S. East Coast.
William Gray of Colorado
State University, along with
his assistant, Phil Klotzbach,
released their updated fore-
cast for the coming season
Tuesday.
"We continue to foresee
another very active Atlantic
basin tropical cyclone season
in 2006. Landfall probabilities
for the 2006 hurr icane season
are well above their long-peri-
od averages," the report stat-
ed.
While the forecast is new,
the numbers are not, as the
Colorado State team has seen
little change in the factors
that are necessary for a busy
season.
"Information obtained
through the end of. March
continues to indicate that the
2006 Atlantic hurricane sea-
son will be much more active
than the average 1950-2000
season," Klotzbach said.


That translates to a fore-
cast calling for 17 named
storms, nine hurricanes and
five intense hurricanes be-
tween June 1 and Nov. 31.
Lisa Berman, a Charlotte
County emergency planner,
said the forecast is looked at
with interest because of the
prominence of Gray's team
and the historical accuracy of
their forecasts, but little is
done differently in the plan-
ning for the coming season.
"It doesn't matter how
many storms are predicted.
We prepare for anything that
comes," Berman said.
The forecast comes on the
heels of the busiest and most
destructive hurricane season
on record, with 27 named
storms causing more than
$80 billion in damages, so far.
In fact, the last two hurri-
cane seasons have been filled
with unprecedented activity
and landfall.
All of this increased activity
started on Aug. 13, 2004, \ith
Hurricane Charley, a Cate-
gory 4 storm with winds esti-
,mated at 150 mph.
The activity has barely let
up since. Florida alone has
been hit by 10 storms of vary-
ing intensity:
Klotzbach said the team
bases its forecasts on a num-
ber of factors, including look-
ing back at the past 50 years of
weather, sea-surface temper-
atures and other items.

Good morning, Gondolier
Sun subscriber,
DALE PROVENMIRE


Jerome Ryan didn't plan on
speaking Tuesday night.
But after more than an
hour of finger-pointing and
accusations, the executive
director of Tampa Housing
Authority stood up and spoke
to the crowd debating the fu-
ture of Grove Terrace Apart-
ments the only public
housing complex in South
County.
"There has to be a better
way to live than the way you.
all are living here now," Ryan
said. "Just because you're
poor doesn't mean you
shouldn't have options. ...
When you get to the end of
the day, it's all about coming
up with decent housing to
live in."
Ryan was attempting to
calm the concerns of resi-
dents challenging Venice
Housing Authority's redevel-
opment project. Tampa
Housing has volunteered to
help run VHA since the
abrupt resignation of its exec-
utive director a month ago.

Tampa Housing Authority
Executive Director Jerome
Ryan speaks to residents at
Tuesday night's public work-
shop, attempting to dispel
fears about the Section 8
voucher program.

VHA applied Feb. 1 for low-
income tax credits to fund the
redevelopment project, re-
placing the 50 current units
with 144. City officials, resi-
dents of Grove Terrace and
community members are
challenging the project be-
cause they feel the public has
been excluded and question

the project's quality.
Ryan did not address those
issues, but he did make clear
that the relocation program
using Section 8 vouchers is
safe. Residents fear they will
be relocated and then their
voucher checks eliminated
after Grove Terrace is demol-
ished.
As long as a person does
not violate the terms of use,
Ryan assured residents they
will not lose their vouchers
"absent an act of Congress."
"These are permanent,"
Ryan said. "You can use them
forever, take them to the end
of the country if you want."
Ryan also warned of limit-
ed funds. There are only a
couple of construction
sources out there, and none
of them deal with renovating
as few as 50 units like VHA
has right now.
Members of the VHA Res-
idents Council have chal-
lenged demolition plans and
want to rehabilitate the exist-
ing townhouses. Residents
Council president Carter
Canada cites a 2004 engineer-
ing report, conducted by
VHA, that suggests only $1.3
million is needed to rehabili-
tate the 35-year-old build-
ings.

Sam Prost, the new chair of Venice Housing Authority, listens
to resident criticisms of VHA's redevelopment plans during a
public workshop Tuesday night. Prost replaced Richard Appell,
who is still on the board, as the VHA chair as of April 1.


VHA has since claimed in
its demolition application it
would cost more than $7 mil-
lion to fully rehabilitate the 50
units, in contrast to $11.3 mil-
lion to demolish and rebuild
72 units. It would apply in
2007 for tax credits to pay for
the remaining 72 units.
Based on his walk-through
inspection Tuesday, Ryan told
the crowd it would cost much
more than $1.3 million to


fully renovate. Going from 50
to 144 units also is rare and
should be embraced because
many housing redevelop-
ment projects are for fewer
units rather than more.
Many residents are oppos-
ed to the project for that very
reason. They fear most of the
units will go to families mak-
ing 60 percent of Sarasota

Mayor to veto new park

From the April 3, 1975, Venice Gondolier Sun


STAFF REPORT


Venice Mayor William Mc-
Cracken is expected to
attempt to block an amend-
ment to the city's park ordi-
nance which makes portions
of block 51 a part,of Veteran's
Memorial Park.
City council about a
month ago passed the
amendment which sets aside
an area for future parking
and ties the remainder into
the park system.
"I probably am not going


to sign that amendment,"
McCracken said Monday.
The mayor objected be-
cause the amendment does
not include the entire un-
paved area in the park sys--
tem.
"I feel it should take in
the entire block," McCracken
said.
"First of all I think the
area should be kept as a
park. That was the intent of
the park board's recommen-
dation.
, "Secondly, we., made, .a

concession by removing the
clause that required a referen-
dum to change a park to
another use. All that is re-
quired now is a public hear-
ing," McCracken explained.
"He added that Veteran's
Park could always be chang-
ed later if the residents so
desired.
"I think providing parking
for downtown would be dis-
criminatory. We didn't pro-
vide parking for merchants
on U.S. 41 when they lost
their parking. I still feel we
should help those people.

that there is no need for
more parking at present. Five
is that there is ample park-
ing available within two
blocks of that area. It would
cost money, but land could
be purchased."
McCracken suggested fol-
lowing the lead of other
cities which charge for park-
ing. If a patron uses a park-
ing lot while shopping a
special ticket is punched and
no charge is made.
"This would help regulate
parking," he said.
The mayor felt that by
providing such parking, peo-


Tropical Bob could almost
hear his crotons crying.
Their colorful leaves were
curled and the edges dried
out. Exposed to an intense
sun day after rainless day,
they desperately needed
water.
The same was true for a
newly planted magnolia, an
immature Key lime, even
T.B.'s sprengeri ferns. All were
suffering dehydration from
our extended period without
rain.
T.B. felt no guilt watering
them. There is no water short-
age now. And plants repay,
our assistance in times of
need by cleaning up the air
and making our surroundings
beautiful. We need them.

Oscar Scherer has


ect of the Year'


BY FRAN PALMERI
SPECIALTY THE GONDOLIER SUN


The Friends of Oscar
Scherer Park Inc., the volun-
teer organization for Oscar
Scherer State Park in Osprey,
has.' on the "Project of the
Year" award for its innovative
renovation of the trails in this
beautiful 1,382-acre state
park.
The project updated the
15-mile-long trail system
using volunteer labor, cou-
pled with the quantum
advances in mapping, graph-
ic design and signs.
For months, the "Wed-
nesday Work Group" has met
weekly at the park to refur-
bish, reconfigure and mark
the trails, which run through
the scrubby flatwoods and
pine flatwoods, two of the
original ecosystems in this
area. Sometimes more than a
dozen volunteers turn up.
They've just finished
rebuilding a footbridge on
the Yellow Trail and
constructing an observation
bench on Big Lake so hikers
can take in the gorgeous
views of waterfowl and other
wildlife.
Park Manager John Roche
and Volunteer Coordinator
Don Dutcher are delighted
with the cornucopia of volun-
teer talent in the park.
"Oscar Scherer would not
be what it is without our vol-'
unteers," said Roche.
Benefiting from all this
work are the more than
100,000 visitors to the park
each year.
A large sign with a map of
all the trails greets them at

Displaying the plaque the Friends of Oscar Scherer received for their winning trail project are Mike Bullock, director of the

the ranger station entrance,
and they can pick up the new
All Trails Map in full color
with explanations of all the
trails.
Signs to guide hikers have


been placed at the trail
heads and at strategic places
in the park. Each trail has its
own map with descriptions of
the ecosystems and wildlife
along that particular trail.


Now, it's hard to get lost,
with colored arrows pointing
the way. Hikers don't have to
worry about how to get there,
but can concentrate on tak-
ing in the beautiful scenery.


Valuable volunteers
The volunteers come from
various walks of life. Some are
retired; others like Bob Sen-
dry, who's worked on park
projects for 10 years, work full


time.
Ed Dannenberg, who's re-
tired, is there often. Jamie
Theobald, who lives across
the street, has been a regular
for 11 years.
Bruce Snyder, another
long-timer working on this
project, oversaw the creation
of the Lester Finley barrier-
free trail 10 years ago. Russ
Delaney, who also works full
time, got two butterfly gar-
dens established on that trail,
and along with Bob Sendry, is
one of the leaders of the trail
rehab project.
John Mongelli and George
Karnady are faithful members
of the Wednesday group and
on the board of the Friends.
Sherry Hanson, a biologist,
helped GPS the trails for the
creation of the new trail maps
and sign boards in the park.
Gene and Marlene Keene,
MaryAnn and Richard Dickey
and a host of others con-
tributed in many different
ways to make this project a
winner.

The Bridges' headed to city council


BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Referring to The Bridges as
being on the fast-track ap-
proval process is an under-
statement.
Two weeks after officially
applying for annexation, Gulf
Coast Community Founda-
tion ofVenice is headed to city
council for final approval to
bring its 146 acres of land off
Laurel Road into city limits.
The community founda-
tion's project could bring
workforce housing into the
middle of a North Venice
development explosion that
will include 7,000 new homes,
a retail and movie. theater
complexes and an expanded
industrial park.
GCCFV President and CEO
Ten Hansen complimented
city staff, which has been in
annexation negotiations since
November. Hansen hopes to
have conceptual designs
ready within six months.
"We're on track with our
timeline," Hansen said. "It's
because of the city staff work-
ing with us. They understand
the sense of urgency."
The planning commission,
by a 5-0 vote,. approved
GCCFV's annexation and the


neighboring 36-acre annexa-
tion of Waterford Companies
property slated for retail
development. GCCFV and
Waterford are working to de-
velop their properties in har-
mony with one another -
especially when it comes to
roads.
Waterford is doing a simi-
lar deal on the north side of
Laurel Road, where it will pro-
vide parking for a South
County YMCA facility and a
Habitat for Humanity devel-
opment.
Venice has offered to waive
one-third of the "extraordi-
nary impact" fee of $1,760 on
homes that meet one or all
three workforce housing stip-
ulations, as defined by the
city.
For each one of these stip-
ulations met, Venice would
waive one-third ($587) of the
impact fee:
Waive one-third of im-
pact fees ($587) if the home is
sold to a city of Venice em-
ployee or person employed
by a Venice-based business.
Another third if the
home's value or rental cost is
at or below 80 percent of the
median housing price.,
Family income is at or be-
low 120 percent of the me-


dian income for Sarasota
County.
The annexation deal also
includes the city obtaining
water well rights, and GCCFV
designing and building a
north-south connector for
Laurel and Border roads. The
foundation also must pay for
all utility and infrastructure
improvements, as well as
county and school impact
fees.
What will The Bridges be?
GCCFV is not saying how
many residential homes will
be built. In previous inter-
views, GCCFV officials have
suggested as many as 1,000
residences could be there.
On Feb. 28, the project and
its name was unveiled to city
council. The rough, black-
and-white designs showed
more intense residential and
commercial developments
on the property's north end,
with the intensity being
reduced as one moves toward
the southern end by Border
Road.
GCCFV also could wind up
becoming the first develop-
ment to ask for the controver-
sial Commercial, Mixed-Use
District zoning.
City council adopted the


ordinance, drafted by Water-
ford Companies, last year fol-
lowing months of debate.
Waterford president Mike
Miller wanted to use the zon-
ing for his redevelopment
and condominium tower
project on Venice island next
to the Intracoastal Waterway.
But Miller withdrew his
rezoning request over con-
cerns council members
would turn it down.
The CMU District makes
sense for The Bridges project
because it allows more flexi-
bility, City Manager Marty
Black said. GCCFV wants to
mix residential, retail and
commercial in its 146-acre
development.
One idea is to include
rental housing on single-fam-
ily home lots, which would
allow a homeowner to sup-
plement the family income
by renting out an apartment
over the garage.
The city manager also
hopes this agreement pro-
vides a blueprint for future
developments and become
part of the city's policy for
dealing with a lack of work-
force housing.
"We need to address the
housing issue head-on, as a
community," Black said.

Giovanna "Gi" Deveny
touched many lives in her 28
years living in Sarasota Coun-

She is moving on, return-

there.
"They need me terribly,"
Deveny said while while re-

The commissioners prais-

after retiring as a teacher.
She was instrumental in
starting the School Readiness

"Gi and I go back to one

sioner Shannon Staub said of
her first encounter with the
dynamic woman.
"She was always bringing
us solutions," Staub said. "She
has been my best friend."
While presenting a bou-
quet of flowers to Deveny,
Staub said she regretted it was

do for her.
"These don't hold a light to

Path to school success





lies in collaboration


Venice High and Venice Middle School
principals give an update


on school improvement p

BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Two school principals
from Venice took turns in the
hot seat before the Sarasota
County School Board on
Tuesday to answer a pointed
question: What are your
schools doing to improve
student achievement?
Venice High's Candace
Millingtoh and Venice Middle
School's Jack Turgeon gave
progress reports on their
schools annual school im-
provement plans.
Millington focused on
Venice High's poor reading
scores, while Turgeon focus-
ed on boosting Venice
Middle's lackluster reading
and math scores.
Led by appointed SACs,
every school in the district has
its own school improvement
plan. SIPs are driven largely
by reading, writing and math
goals set out in President
Bush's' No Child Left Behind
Act. By 2008, 70 percent or
more of students are expected
to demonstrate proficiency
in reading and mathematics;
90 percent in writing.
Reading
Venice High has already
reached its NCLB AYP target
for writing proficiency, with 90
percent of students deemed
proficient since 2004. It has
also been exceeding its target
ib mathematics since 2003,
with 75 percent deemed pro-,
ficient in 2004.
Reading is another story.
It's one principal Millington is
in the process of rewriting.
Only 40 percent of students
were deemed proficient in
writing inl 2003, the baseline
year. That jumped to 44 per-
cent in 2004, and back down
to 40 percent again in 2005.
The school will have to re-
double its efforts to reach
Sthe 70 percent target required
under NCLB by 2008.
To get there Millington has
targeted struggling readers.
She required the lowest per-
formers to enroll in special
reading-intensive courses like
Reading 180. All ninth-graders
are required to take at least
two credits of English. All
Level 1 (lowest performers)
10th-graders are required to
take the intensive English
class. Other classes were en-
couraged to require more
reading assignments.
To help teachers identify
which students need the extra
help, the school hired a data
coach and reading coach.
Much of the SIP is focused
on teachers collaborating
with each other. The school
established collaborative
planning teams, led by data
and reading coaches, to de-
velop better lesson plans and
assessments. Study groups
were formed to discuss best
reading practices and to help
teachers utilize electronic re-
sources to get an edge on
FCATs.
"We should be seeing the
results of that in the next
couple of years," Millington
said.
She credits a recent ac-
creditation review with help-
ing the school organize and
hone its improvement plan.
...and more reading
Fifty-six percent of Venice
Middle School students
reached math proficiency
levels in 2003 and 2004, drop-
ping to 55 percent in 2005.
That's ahead of the annual
target set by NCLB, but be-
low the 70 percent goal for

plans.

2008.
VMS reading scores were
better, with 59 percent of stu-
dents reaching proficiency in
2004. Seventy percent is re-
quired by 2008.
The school continued to
show stellar writing scores.
The schoolsurpassed NCLB
requirements since the base-
line year of 2003, with 92
percent deemed proficient by
passing the FCAT Writing in
2004.
Principal Jack Turgeon said
while his school is consid-
ered a high-performing "B"
school, he realizes significant
gains need to be made. His
goal is to increase reading and
math FCAT scores by 8 per-
cent this year.
Turgeon, a former assis-
tant principal at Venice High,
described ushering along the


same collaborative processes
Venice High teachers are en-
gaged in.
"(Teachers) aren't getting
together unless we tell them
to get together," he said.
To accomplish the task,
VMS added additional
work days (and a stipend)
to give staff time to collab-
orate.
"They've found that to be
very empowering," Turgeon
said. "There's such a great
natural dynamic at work
when that happens."
Even veteran teachers
have embraced the collab-
orative process, Turgeon
said. Public education's most
experienced teachers have
sometimes resisted being
told what to teach ever since
the standards movement
swept public education and
schools began to align cur-
riculum with state standards
upon which FCATs are based,
creating what school board
member Carol Todd charac-
terized as "the essential cur-


riculum."
New dialogue
School board past presi-
dent Kathy Kleinlein request-
ed a new process this year for
handling SIPs. Previously the
board visited each school,
which offered its own pro-
gress report. The presenta-
tions sometimes didn't leave
time for meaningful discus-
sion. This time; the school
board is inviting principals
and two or three school
associates to discuss how stu-
dents are performing acade-
mically. Board members
wanted principals to identify
target areas for improvement,
describe how teachers are
integrating technology into
the classroom instruction at
the school, and explain the
decision-making process
used to determine programs
and allocate resources.

Venice High to get

$3.5 million makeover


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

It's official. Venice High will
undergo a major makeover
this summer, according to
Sarasota County School Dis-
trict Superintendent Gary
Norris at a Tuesday school
board meeting.
"We're going to pump
roughly $3.5 million into the
school between now and
August," Norris said.
Nearly $2 million will go
toward rebuilding its science
department classrooms,
which have been found to
be out of compliance with
OSHA regulations, and criti-
cized for unsanitary condi-
tions. Another $1.5 million
will go toward restoring "de-
plorable restrooms," a teacher
break room, security lighting,
carpeting and painting
throughout the campus.
Part of the facelift will in-
clude renovation of the New
Deal building that houses


special programs for strug-
gling students. The New Deal
building will get four newly
renovated classrooms and
new furniture, as well as
individual learning computer
stations.
"It's really important to
move forward with the reno-
vations," said Venice High
Principal Candy Millington.
"We're thankful for the inter-
est in Venice High shown by
Superintendent Norris and
the school board, and for
making it a priority."
"It's not a final solution for
Venice High," added Milling-
ton, referring to the eventual
need for a new school, "but
it's a temporary solution for
which we are very grateful."
Millington said she ex-
pects the renovation to be
complete before next school
year begins.

JOINT from Page I A
of any joint meeting is com-
munications and the poten-
tial to reconcile legitimate
policy differences if any
should exist."
Happening again
While that may be true,
City Manager Marty Black
believes there maybe more of
a communication problem
than county commissioners
realize. An example of this
was how county staff told
commissioners March 21
there was no city input on the
East Venice Avenue Com-
munity Plan because the city
did not respond to invita-
tions.
The invitations Black re-
ceived, however, were for a
city representative to sit in the
audience during the public
workshops instead of partici-
pate.
Venice also is questioning
how impact fee money col-
lected within city limits is
being spent on county roads.
The Venice Gondolier Sun first
reported in a Feb. 27, 2005,
how the city identified $2.5
million in missing road im-
pact fee money paid to the
county for new develop-
ments.
The problem appears to be


happening again, according
to Black.
Venice agreed to pay 47
percent of the $2.6 million
Pinebrook Road extension
project to Center Road that's
outside of city limits, and the
county would cover the other
53 percent.
But in the latest cost pro-
jections, Venice's share of the
total project has jumped by
$585,000 to cover 65 percent
of the total cost and the coun-
ty's portion decreased by
$315,461 to only cover 35 per-
cent of the cost.
Black admits the 50-50
split was a verbal agreement
reached under the previous
city manager.
Despite lacking a signed
agreement, Black has asked
the county to return the pro-
ject to an even 50-50 split.
"It doesn't represent a true
partnership," said Black,
adding that is one reason why
he prefers signed agreements.
Not our job
The city isn't the only one
asking road questions. Coun-
ty commissioners want to
know why it must continue
maintaining residential
streets mostly on Venice
island that have been an-
nexed into the city.
Almost four years ago,


multiple county enclaves
were annexed into city limits
in order to prevent duplica-
tion of services like law
enforcement, utilities and
public works. Much of the
Golden Beach area along the
western side of South Harbor
Drive between the airport
and Gulf Drive is included in
this.
Excluded from that Sep-
tember 2002 agreement be-
tween the city and county,
however, was a requirement
that the city assume responsi-
bility for residential streets,
sidewalks and stormwater
drains. All of that remains
with the county.
City and county staff did
discuss annexation of the
roads, according to Black,
who was one of the city's
negotiators four years ago as
deputy city manager. The
county attorney then omitted
any mention of the roads in
the final agreement drafted
by Sarasota County.
As the city said then,
Venice will not accept these
residential roads or sidewalks
until improvements are made
that meet city design stan-
dards, Black said.
This stance has left some
county commissioners frus-
trated.
"As I recall, at the (2005)


ON THE AGENDA
A joint meeting of Venice City Council and Sarasota County Commission will be at 1 p.m. Thursday at
Venice Community Center.
Items listed on the agenda include:
Level of service by county staff in city parks.
Caspersen Beach annexation into city limits.
Enclave annexations and responsibility for roads and sidewalks.
County road improvements within city limits.
Proposed road grid for North Venice development.
Venice Avenue Bridge appearance.
Approval of joint U.S. 41 Bypass agreement.
Review of city annexation policy and philosophy.
Review of county plans for surrounding area.
The meeting will be in Room D of the community center.
No opportunity is listed for public input.
The city and county last held a joint meeting Feb. 23, 2005. None of the joint agreements reached at
that meeting (Venice Avenue Bridge painting and U.S. 41 Bypass redevelopment plan) has been final-
ized in the 14 months since then.

Venice and county, we asked

non Staub wrote in an e-mail.


HOUSING from Page lA
County's median income -
about $35,000 per year -
instead of going to those at
the bottom end, and is noth-

cooling slightly with respect
to climatology, the water re-
mains ominously warm," he
said.
One factor that can cut off
hurricanes is strong winds
from an El Nifio or La Nifa.
Currently, weak La Nifia con-
ditions are being observed, so
the team expects either neu-
tral or weak La Nifia condi-
tions to be present during the
coming hurricane season.
The team found four years
in which weather conditions
were similar to the current
condition and found that
each of those years had
above-normal activity.
Given the recent spate of
busier-than-usual seasons,
Klotzbach said the team
decided to expect more
storms than even those sea-
sons.
He warned that the past
two seasons were very unusu-
al when it came to landfalling
storms, but were not unex-
pected when upper-air steer-
ing currents were closely
monitored.

Panhandle west to

percent).

cane landfall risk in the

Philip,KlQtzbach of.Colorado
State University


It' was these favorable
Atlantic steering currents that
caused so many of the major
i hurricanes that formed to
come ashore," Klotzbach said.
While the team gives a
probability of 81 percent that
a major hurricane with sus-
tained winds greater than 125
mph will strike somewhere
along the U.S. coastline, he
said predicting steering cur-
rents is not within the capa-
bilities of science. The annual
probability of a hurricane hit-
ting landfall in the U.S. during
the past 100 years has been 52
percent.
For the Florida peninsula
t and the U.S. East Coast, the
' probability of a major land-
falling hurricane is 64 per-
o cent, while the average during
the past century is 31 percent.
The actual probability of a
hurricane hitting landfall for
any one location along the
coast is very low, meaning
that most U.S. coastal areas
S will not feel the effects of a
Hurricane no matter how
Active the individual season
' is. ,
Z "It is rare to have two con-
Ssecutive years with such a
* strong simultaneous combi-
nation of high amounts of
major hurricane activity to-
gether with especially favor-
able steering flow currents,"
Klotzbach said. "The histori-
cal records and the laws of
statistics indicate that the
probability of seeing another
two consecutive hurricane
seasons like 2004-2005 is very
low."
He went on to say that it is
statistically unlikely that the
coming 2006 and 2007 hurri-
cane seasons, or the seasons
that follow, will have the num-
ber of major hurricane U.S.
landfall events as we have


seen in 2004 and 2005.
With the increased num-
ber of storms, many argue
global warming should be
blamed.
Gray disagrees.
"No credible observational
evidence is available, or likely
will be available in the next
few decades, which will be
able to directly associate glo-

Sa V-rasota County learned lessons from Charley



Sarasota County learned lessons from Charley


EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first
of a two-part series on disas-
ter response planning in
Sarasota County. Next:
Coordinating a disaster
response for volunteers.

BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County has a new
seat at the table in its Emerg-
ency Operations Center.
Human services agencies
and nonprofit providers of
many of the things needed
after a disaster strikes are now
an integral part of the coun-
ty's disaster plan.
Chip Taylor, human ser-
vices manager) said the
changes have been made
during the last two years of
active hurricane seasons,
starting with Hurricane


Charley.
"That started the ball
rolling for us," Taylor said.
"We saw how ill-prepared
Charlotte and DeSoto coun-
ties were to handle the after-
math of the storm."
It wasn't as if either county
didn't have a disaster plan. In
fact, both did and it worked to
perfection, but neither thor-
oughly planned how to deal
with the aftermath on the
individuals.
"These plans are designed
to get government up and
functioning again," Taylor
said. "That is essential. But
the human element food,
clothing, housing, mental
health and so much more -
soon follows,"
On the fly
Taylor and Pauline Tracy,
human services policy coor-
dinator, worked to find solu-


tions to help get the right ser-
vices to the right people.
Sarasota County officials
assisted Charlotte and
DeSoto counties in the after-
math of Hurricane Charley,
and Tracy said she learned
the need to have service
providers ready to go ahead
of time instead of coming
together after the fact.
The crisis stabilization unit
in Charlotte was destroyed, so
Taylor and Tracy learned they
needed to figure what to do
with those people in critical
need.
"Everyone was reacting on
the fly to each new crisis
instead of preventing them,"
Taylor said.
Even three weeks after"
Hurricane Charley, the coun-
ty was shocked when 350
families were suddenly
housed in the Stay N Play RV
Park in South Venice by the


Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency.
"These people didn't have
wheels," Taylor said. They
were 4 miles from a grocery
store. "They walked away and
left them with no way to get to
food, so we created a team of
people to help."
SCAT, the area bus system,
donated vehicles to provide
free shuttles to the store. The
health department went door
to door and coordinated to
find out who needed what.
"It was all very chaotic,"
Taylor said. "We decided then
that before the next thing hit,
we needed to get ourselves
better connected."
All about logistics
Through the Community
Disaster Preparedness Com-
mittee and Sarasota Com-
munity Alliance, Taylor and
Tracy have been able to


change the way the county
responds to a crisis.
The early fruits of their
work were realized when
more than 400 Hurricane
Katrina survivors descended
on the county within two
weeks.
"Most only with clothes on
their backs," Taylor recalled.
"They were just here. We put
in place a system to help
them deal with their misfor-
tunes."
Tracy was able to develop a
Katrina Assistance Center
within a day of the start of the
crisis. SCAT provided bus
vouchers. All Faith Food Bank
and the Florida Department
of Children & Families also
stepped up.
"It was the first time we
tried to coordinate everything
on such short notice," Tracy
said. "It showed everyone it
could be done even when


we weren't expecting it."
Taylor said he could never
have fathomed being able
to react so effectively pre-
Charley.
In addition to coordinating
the numerous government
agencies that provide key
human services to the com-
munity, the plan also in-
cludes ways to handle the vol-
unteer agencies and dona-
tions.
"It is all about logistics and
making sure everyone knows
their role," Tracy said.
Taylor said all of the work
has a common goal of being
able' to respond to any inci-
dent be it a hurricane, flu
outbreak or something else
unforeseen so the county
doesn't "get caught flat-foot-
ed."

1"' Several' '/f'"A
years ago,
a study
concerning the use
of complementary and alternative
therapies showed that 42 percent of
Americans used such treatments and
the rates were rising. A more recent
study shows that treatments like chiropractic are
also popular among the children of these
patients. In fact, researchers found that the.single
most important determining factor as to whether
a pediatric patient is likely to utilize
complementary and alternative therapies is
previous use of the treatment by a parent. Boys
were found to be more likely to seek out these
treatments than girls, but a child of any gender with
low pack pain was particularly likely to do so.
Want a happier, healthier child? Bring them in for a
chiropractic spinal checkup.
At TWIN PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH CENTER,
we are currently accepting new patients and welcome
you to call 941-412-3800 to schedule an appointment.
Our goal is to provide you and your family with
quality chiropractic healthcare to help you continue
your care beyond the mere relief of obvious
symptoms, for your long-term health interests for the
rest of your and your family's life. Understanding,
compassion, and the traditional American "Family
Doctor" approach can be expected when care is
obtained from a doctor of chiropractic. We're
located at 1214-C Venice Ave. East. We offer
massage therapy and have 4 licensed massage
therapists on staff.
P.S. According to the study mentioned above,
children of users of alternative therapies nearly
always sought out chiropractors to address

LET 'EM HAVE IT! WHAT CHANGES SHOULD SARASOTA ..'0.f MAKE AT SNOOK HAVEN? LL i AT 207-1111.


Go straight. This is a com-
ment to, but not exclusive to,
the elderly snowbirds. When
you're at an intersection, and
you're not sure which way to
turn, left or right, and you
happen to be in the straight-
ahead lane, please do rfot
make a left or a right turn.
You've got all day, you're on
vacation, you're retired go
down the street and come
back. It's not that big of a deal.
Chances are you can afford
the 15 or 20 cents for gas. You
are causing near misses all the
time.
I'm not saying that snow-
birds are the only ones who
do this, but it just so happens
that the elderly snowbirds
seem to be the biggest culprit
and they've got all the time in
the world.
Dire jeopardy. Seriously
speaking, Mr. Bush needs to
be tested for Alzheimet's. His
judgments can no longer be
trusted. He is placing us all in
dire jeopardy and the coun-
try's economy in great danger
of ruination.
Fortune teller. I was so
excited this morning when I
picked up my newspaper,
Wednesday morning, March
8, in my driveway at about 7
a.m. and my first thing that I
read was that the Frank The-
aters opened Wednesday at 1
p.m. with little hoopla. The
Gondolier Sun now apparent-
ly has a swami who sits in the
offices there with a crystal ball
and a turban because that's
nothing short of prophesy,
stating that it already opened
some six hours before the
time that I read the paper and
a good number of hours
before the paper was printed.
My congratulations, I'm
amazed. Could we line up for
this service? Is there a charge
for it, that we could have
prophesy done for us and for
telling our futures? I think it
would be very interesting.
Maybe they could tell how
that roof's going to go on
Frank Theaters. too.
-Name, change. Well, the
onrlything I have is to change
the name of Let'em have it to
"Listen to me."
The gas story. I haven't
seen, many stories in the
paper about you tracking the
gasoline prices. Are there any
controls in the town of
Venice? Why are the stations
allowed to take down the
numbers and not put them
up for hours on end? Or, put
plastic bags on their pumps
and yet advertise they have it
for $2.29 a gallon and when
you go in it's a hell of a lot
higher. Great news story how
these prices change so fre-
quently. Maybe you could do.
a follow-up story on it. It
would be very interesting to
see how often they change
and their strategy for holding
their prices unmarked for
hours and hours on end.
Teething troubles. It's great
to have a movie theater in
Venice again. A tip of the hat
to the Frank company and
Mike Miller. But, before you
break your arms patting your-
selves on the back, here are a
few of the problems we expe-
riences on Tuesday, March 7.
One, the recorded times for
Tuesday were wrong the
3:15 p.m. showing of Mrs.
Henderson was given as 3:35
and another couple said the
time for 16 Blocks was also
wrong. Two, the volume for
the previews in theater six was
unbearable a word to the
manager fixed it. Three, about
10 or 15 minutes into the
show, the commercials start-
ed showing again again to
the manager and this was
fixed. Four, the film resumed
but we had the experience of
background music without
the dialog. Another couple
and ourselves got refunds.
That was enough. I didn't
mention the pounding in an
adjacent theater next door.
Ok, we'll be back in a week or
so when things are smoother.
I realize these are teething


troubles, but the paper left
these out when they did their
article.
For consumers. What we
need in this area is a periodi-
cal for consumers. We had
one of those in the Washing-
ton, D.C., area. It works about
like Consumer's Report's list-


ings of products, grading auto
services and other services
and stores, their return poli-
cies, services to customers,
people satisfaction quotas,
etc. It would surely be some-
thing people would be happy
to buy.
No matinees. This is not
an attack on our brand new
wonderful movie theater, it's


just a comment to people of
what they will pay when
they go. My husband and I
assumed that a matinee
would be something that
was in the afternoon. When
we arrived to see a movie
that started at 5:05, or our
other choice at 5, we were
told that the full $8.75 price
would be in effect and they


do not have any matinees.
When we mentioned that
most movie theaters do not
do things in that way, usual-
ly a 5 o'clock movie is a
matinee, they said, well, we
don't do things like other
movie theaters. So, new
movie theater, welcome, but
maybe you need to make
some changes.

Highway safety session designed for failure


ast Thursday, more than 200 people
from northern and western Florida
took part in a highway safety meeting in
Orlando. The goal was to try to identify prob-
lems the state must attack to try to reduce
Florida's highway slaughter.
At the opening session, Col. Christopher
Knight, director of the Florida Highway
Patrol, said he wants to hire, 475 additional
patrolmen. He currently has funding for
1,811 troopers, but not all positions have
been filled. To get the job done now, the
state's taxpayers provide FHP $4.5 million in
overtime pay.
We doubt even doubling the size of the
FHP will cut deaths and injuries.
Last year there were a total of 62,566
crashes in Florida, and 3,515 men, women
and children died on our roads.
The FHP issued 1,025,343 citations, with
10,661 for drunk driving, 386,220 for speed-
ing, and 12,176 for aggressive driving. But


It ain't broke,



so don't fix it


ED MARTIN
COLUMNIS T
'~i ,*


The proposal to remove
the city's finance director as a
charter officer has an interest-
ing history. This is not the first
time it has been suggested.
Council member John
Simmonds, who recently sup-
ported the change in testimo-
ny before the current Charter
Review Committee, also sup-
ported the idea in April 1998,
when he served as a member
of a similar committee. He
and the majority voted to rec-
ommend the change. Coun-
cil, waiting until December to
act, did not approve the rec-
ommendation and left the
charter intact.
The charter lists the Fi-
nance Department as having
the responsibility to "account
for all city funds and the sta-
tus of bond issues and other
indebtedness, for day-to-day
receipts and disbursements
of city funds and for all inter-
nal auditing of all city depart-
ments."
The department is headed
by the finance director who,
like the other charter officers
- the city manager, city clerk
and city attorney- reports to
council.
Among the duties of the
finance director, who is the
"fiscal advisor" to council, are:
to invest city funds; prescribe
and supervise all accounting
procedures; furnish data to
the city manager and council
on fiscal and budgetary mat-
ters; receive and account for
monies, e.g., taxes, fees, etc.;
issue checks; and furnish
financial reports.
I think perhaps the key
concept in considering
whether to keep or change
the status of the finance di-
rector is the phrase in Section
5.07, "and for all internal
auditing procedures of all city
departments."
I have served on several
boards of publicly traded
companies (New York Stock
Exchange and NASDAQ), and
the concept of having inde-
pendent auditors is recog-
nized as essential. Enron and
other scandals have increas-
ed the recognition that the
corporate boards should have
independent control over au-
diting functions.


other statistics provided to the meeting's par-
ticipants indicated those were not the prima-
ry reason for the crashes.
While the day-long session had great
potential, it probably will have little impact
on the number of accidents on our roads:
The meeting was designed for failure from
the outset.
The opening session was much too long,
with boring speeches, and other than Col.
Knight's statistics, very little helpful informa-
tion was provided.
After the opening session, the 200 partici-
pants were divided into groups of 25, and
people were asked to offer their views on
highway safety and then offer ideas and pro-
pose priorities. Unfortunately, the groups
were much too large for easy conversation,
too little time was provided and facilitators
had been instructed to move the groups
along swiftly to decision-making. What a
wasted opportunity.


Outside auditors now are
chosen by and report to the
audit committee and the
entire board. A second review
by another auditor, part of the
process called for by the
Sarbanes-Oxley Act, also is
chosen by and reports to the
audit committee and board.
Where a company has an
internal auditor, that person
also .has a direct reporting
relationship to the bbard. v
City"hall observers tell me
they were not aware of any
conflicts or problems be-
tween Mike McPhail, the pre-
vious finance director, and
city manager Marty Black
In 1998, then-City Man-
ager George Hunt supported
changing the charter to bring
McPhail under his direction.
McPhail testified against the
idea. Black appears to have
no public position on this
issue, deferring to council.
Simmonds said of council,
"We just don't have enough
information or expertise to
supervise a finance director."
That sounds like a problem
that could be changed by
selecting new council mem-
bers, where needed, with
more fiscal experience, as
corporate boards have done.
Simmonds also felt that
the job's charter officer, status
made some candidates for
the job, recently filled, less
interested in the position, but
their reasoning was not re-
ported. Mayor Dean Cala-
maras and council member
Fred Hammett also felt the
position should report to the
city manager.
Council member John
Moore feels that the present
system is working and sees it
as providing "checks and bal-
ances." He feels that council
should take advantage of the
availability of the finance
director as their chief fiscal
advisor as called for in the
current charter.
As I wrote last week, past
council members have often
been too uninvolved in the
affairs of the city, leading to
problems. That does not
mean they should try to
micro-manage or interfere
with the city manager,, but
financial policies, review of
operations through audit
* reports and such are a prima-
ry responsibility of a council
or board of directors.
While Black is seen as
effective by council and most
observers, this is not an issue
that should depend on Black
as a person. He is young,
intelligent, trained in growth
management and will un-
doubtedly be attractive to
other communities.

Further, people felt that the data provided,
in- the packets handed out to participants
were less than useful. In fact, many of those
involved apparently focused on their own
pre-conference biases suggested the in-
formation being offered to participants was
suspect.
In a five-year report on "crash trends" par-
ticipants were told 58.5 percent of the fatali-
ties and serious injuries occurred when vehi-
cles failed to remain in "proper travel lanes."
Another 43 percent of crashes took place
at intersections, or were influenced by inter-
sections, according to the data released at
the meeting. Yet few of the groups used these
data to focus on solutions.
Both of these areas could be improved by
engineering studies. But participants instead
wanted to blame drivers, especially "aggres-
sive drivers," inexperienced teenagers and
senior citizens who have reduced reaction.
times, for the highway fatality problem.


W/e caN, 'Now tse the parks, N~ow'lj

W? c usJ ut get T Nto som~e ~as


FDOT statistics, however, showed 36 per-
cent of the fatal and serious injury accidents
were caused by aggressive drivers, just 23
percent of the crashes involved drivers
between the ages of 15 and 20, and,only 18
percent of drivers 65 years or older were in
the fatal or serious injury crashes. And there
is little that can be done to change driver
behavior.
We also were told that one reason the data
should be challenged is because too many
policemen around the state are not given the
time needed to prepare accurate reports.
Without meaningful data, there is little hope
Florida will find solutions.
A second highway safety meeting is
scheduled for the Miami area later in the
spring. To be successful, the flaws in the first
session must be corrected.
Meanwhile large numbers of men, wom-
en and children will continue to be slaugh-
tered or maimed on our highways.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Symphony friends say thanks to all


Editor:
The Venice Symphony's Free Outdoor Pops Concert in
Blalock Park is over. Saturday, March 25, was a cool day, but the
reception of the appreciative audience was warm indeed.
Maestro Wesley John Schumacher smiled from the sideline
while Dr. Scott Thompson, winner of the Friends of the Venice
Symphony Make Me A Maestro Fun-raiser, wielded his very
own baton to lead the musicians in a rousing rendition of John
Philip Sousa's "Semper Fidelis" with confidence and pride.'
The Friends of the Venice Symphony wish to publicly say
"Kudos" to: '
Maestro candidates Dean Calamaras, Kathy Crisman, Vee
Garry-Chiulli, Bob Vedder and Scott Thompson for their time,
enthusiasm and support.
Kim Cool, FranValencic, Debbie Shulman and Bob Vedder
of the Venice Gondolier Sun as well as Judy Huskey and Fran-
cine Milford of the Venice Herald-Tribune for publicizing and
encouraging community participation in the project.
Sarala Pinto for the design and printing of the candidates'
shirts.
Celebration Comer of Venice for donating the funds to
purchase the winning maestro's baton.
Dick's Shoes ofVenicefor a fine "musical" window display.
Consummate musician James Fawcett for creating a lesson
in conducting "Semper Fidelis."
BLAB TV and Vee Garry-Chiulli for preparing videotapes of
the conducting lesson, which were given to each candidate.
All friends, fans, family, clients, customers and community
members who legally bought votes and voted often (at $1 per
vote) to raise more than $4,000, the proceeds of which will go
to help make the Venice Symphony's Outdoor Pops Concert
happen again in 2007.
Thank you one and all!

No one seems to
care about apathy
Editor:
For the past three, weeks I
have been at Jacaranda Public
Library gathering petitions
for Sarasota Alliance for Fair
Elections. There is one public
perception that I feel com-
pelled to address publicly -
in a word, apathy.
Many citizens feel that the
individual does not count in
society. There is disillusion-
ment with government, all of


the political parties, big busi-
ness and large groups of any
sort.
As a result, many people I
have met do not believe they
can make a difference, that
one voice, one vote can mat-
ter.
Please, do not think for a
minute that what you do
affects only you. Whether it is
throwing a wrapper out of the
car window or not exercising
your right to vote, it does mat-
ter. The number of people not


voting could have deter-
mined a change of history in
any number of elections.
To absolutely ensure your
vote, your voice in history,
support a paper trail, a true
backup system.

Cheney broke the
rules of hunting
Editor:-
I think the column by G.B.
Knowles in Friday's Waterline
does a disservice to hunters
with even a small degree of
intelligence.
I have been a hunter all my
life, and have known, with no
confusion, since the age of 10
that:
1. It is not acceptable to
mix alcohol, even at lunch,
with gunpowder.
2. No hunter should ever
pull a trigger without seeing
clearly the target.
3. Bird hunters never
shoot until the target is high
enough to avoid hitting fellow
hunters.
Cheney's "accident" did
not result from confusion and
was not the fault of the victim.
It resulted from carelessness
that can be attributed to alco-
hol and either bad learning or
failing memory.
Cheney should hang up
his hunting clothes.

Some requirements for
driving in Florida:


Drive with bright lights

Drive in the right lane to

Drive in the left lane to
turn right,
Drive in the southbound

Run red lights when you
want to.
Stop in the middle of the
road to decide which way you
want to turn.
Put your animal in your
lap while you drive.
Make sure you are on
your cell phone when driving.
Roll past stop signs, stop
ifyou want.
Don't use wipers when it's

I thought some people

Bush is no more than a war

have sold our ports to the
Nazis, allowed Japan to con-
trol our airways and sold the
rest of our country to the
highest bidder, like he is
doing to us now.
Wake up and smell the cof-

jobs are being out-sourced,
and jobs that the Republicans
can't out-source they're giving

The only war Bush knows
how to fight, and hopefully
not win, is the war against the

The checks and balances
concept should be preserved
for the future, when some or
all of the present characters
may not be on the scene.
Checks and balances are a
central element in our
democracy. We see the issue
raised now in the federal gov-
ernment, where both the
Congress and the Judiciary
have to consider the relation-
ship between their roles and
that of the executive.
Other changes being con-
sidered for the charter are
bringing the police chief and
fire chief under the direct
supervision of the city man-
ager, including their hiring,
suspension or firing. That
seems reasonable and practi-
cal to me as does allowing the
city manager to initiate pro-
gram audits without prior
council approval.
The term "program audit"
usually refers to the actual
management of programs,
which is a tool for evaluating
effectiveness or perhaps in-
vestigating complaints. It do-
es not mean financial audits.
Should a financial audit be
necessary as a complement to'
a program audit, the city.
manager and finance director
should work together. That is
a normal event under the pre-
sent system, where these offi-
cials cooperate on develop-
ment of the budget, for exam-
ple.

Prescription protection musn't be weakened


BY CHARLIE CRIST
GUEST COLUMNIST, ATTORNEY GENERAL

In February 2003, a state-
wide grand jury issued an
important report after con-
ducting a detailed examina-
tion of illegal activity involv-
ing prescription drugs.
In order to combat drug
counterfeiting or adulter-
ation, the grand jury recom-
mended that the Florida
Legislature establish a re-
quirement "that pedigree
papers be provided in sales
transactions all the way from
the manufacturer to the dis-
penser (hospital/pharmacy/
clinic)."
"Pedigree papers" refers to /
a system that provides proof
that drugs are authentic each
time they change hands. If a
major retailer buys a large
shipment of pharmaceuticals
from a distributor, for exam-
ple, the pedigree papers
would show the retailer that
these drugs have not been
tampered with along the way
by an unscrupulous individ-
ual.
Heartbreaking reports
haxe surfaced of shady char-
acters who improperly obtain
large quantities of AIDS or
cancer drugs, then water
.down the medication or re-
package it to sell again.
The possibility. of these


drugs finding their way to
patients represents a very real
threat to the health and qual-
ity of life of people who rely
on these medications. The
grand jury's recommendation
was truly a call to action.
Within a month of the
grand jury report, we began
to work with the Legislature
to implement this outstand-
ing suggestion. The attorney
general's office drafted legis-
lation and asked Sen. Durrell
Peaden and Rep. Ed Homan
to sponsor what became the
Prescription Drug Protection
Act of 2003.
Among its provisions, the
act establishes a pedigree
paper requirement, to take
effect on July 1.
The bill, which was signed
into law by Gov. Bush, gave
the industry a full three years
to comply with the pedigree
papers requirement, thereby
enhancing the safety of our
drug supply and the patients
who depend upon it.
Now, with the implemen-
tation date approaching,
many in the industry want to
have the deadline moved
back.
We should stay the course
for a number of reasons.
One of the arguments for
pushing back the deadline is
that the technology is not
available to implement pedi-

gree papers on time. This is
simply incorrect; the means
to carry out the law's require-
ments are available.
One of the country's largest
pharmaceutical distributors,
H.D. Smith of Springfield, Ill.,
has announced its pedigree
system will be fully imple-
mented in April, about three
months ahead of Florida's
deadline.
Another company that dis-
tributes to Florida clients, FFF
Enterprises Inc., is using the
same technology to meet our
state's safety requirements.
To its great credit, Wal-
greens the nation's second-
largest drug store chain -
has already made the com-
mitment to have its pedigree
paper system in place.
Attempts by the drug
wholesale community to
weaken this law should be
repelled.
The people of Florida were
represented by the statewide
grand jury and by elected
members of the Legislature,
and the important public
safety law they produced
should be left alone.
The Prescription Drug
Safety Act was the culmina-
tion of hard work by mem-
bers of both parties.
It was considered then,
and remains, a national
model for other states to fol-


low.
For proof of the need for
the pedigree papers require-
ment, we need look no fur-
ther than a real-life event that
occurred in late March in
Broward County.. A jury re-
turned a guilty verdict against
an individual for his role in
selling adulterated prescrip-
tion drugs to wholesalers -
medications that were in-
tended for HIV and cancer
patients, as well as those
being treated for high choles-
terol.
Those who saw the wis-
dom of requiring pedigree
papers weren't trying to para-
lyze the public with fears that
the .drugs in their medicine
cabinet or medical clinic
might be tainted or counter-
feit. The vast majority of Flor-
idians will never encounter
an altered medication.
Our objective was, and
continues to be, public safety
and problem prevention. Is it
worth the risk to not. do all
-that we can?
The Prescription Drug Pro-
tection Act was a good law in
2003, and it is still a good law
in 2006.
Now is not the time to go
back on our commitment to
the citizens of Florida.
Charlie Crist is Florida's
attorney general.

VACC Hosts Venice M iddle offered April 6th from 5:00pm to 8:00pm for parents and students of
VMS.


School Career Expo April 6th
One of the goals for the VACC established through strategic planning is
to take an active role in workforce development; i.e., providing business
strategies/employee training to existing businesses & providing programs
that attempt to keep our youth & seniors as employees in the Venice
Area. The Education and Business Development Committee has been
working toward this goal through several objectives, one of which was to
develop a pilot program with Venice Middle School to address career
and post-secondary planning. We have learned through the implemen-
tation of the Venice Area Internship Program (targeted toward our High
School Graduates) that waiting until students are in high school to begin
educating them regarding career opportunities in our area is getting this'
information out too late. We need to spark enthusiasm and excitement
in students early on about career options in our community to keep our
youth here and develop a sustainable workforce. This was the impetus

The Senior Friendship Center of Venice and Chamber's Senior Outreach

Department will present topical information for senior residents on


The program will provide students with three opportunities to learn more
about their unique career aspirations, the type of educational options to
attain the career they seek and finally where they could work in our
area. The program will first provide students with an opportunity to
explore the types of careers that may be well suited to their unique
personality. Parents and students will then have the opportunity to learn
more about educational options (both academic and technical) to reach
that career and finally hear from a panel of local business leaders
regarding what our community has to offer in the way of career opportunities.

Dinner will.be served from 5 6pm. 1/2 hour sessions will begin at
5:30pm. Student strengths and interests sessions and post secondary
session will be direct instruction, and career opportunities will be a panel.

SIMPLICITY DAY SPA

It didn't take long for a new Chamber business to be lauded for outstanding service
and personal attention
It is extremely gratifying when the Education & Business Development Committee
reviewed two separate letters from Chamber members praising today's Business of
the Month winner Simplicity Day Spa.
In the first letter "I have been a customer;of Simplicity Day Spa for a year and
couldn't be happier with the level of customer service and personal attention that has
consistently exceeded my expectations. Owner Delight Peyton and professional
staff always respects my time as they know and even anticipate my needs. The
salon is immaculate and everyone is friendly, professional and very knowledgeable
about current trends and techniques."
The second Chamber member wrote "All the professionals, Delight Peyton and her
congenial Simplicity Day Spa staff are simply great. They pay special attention to
each and every custofner with exceptional care and relaxing personal tenderness.
Owner Delight Peyton is generous as well, donating a day of beauty to worthy charitable
organizations such as the American Cancer Society. I can say enough good things
about Simplicity Day Spa."
Simplicity Day Spa is located at 525A U.S. Hwy 41 Bypass North in Venice.

Manufacturer in breathalyzer case subpoenaed .


BYTOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

Another in a seemingly
endless number of breatha-
lyzer court hearings is sched-
uled for next Tuesday, but this
one has an interesting twist.
"The manufacturer -,has,,
been hit with a subpoena to
show evidence as to why we
should not be able to see the
(breathalyzer) software," Ven-
ice attorney Robert Harrison
said.
The manufacturer of the
Intoxilyzer 5000, the breatha-,
lyzer used in Sarasota County,
has previously refused to pro-
vide the court with the soft-
ware.
At the heart of the Intox-
ilyzer 5000 issue is whether
repairs or modifications to
the instruments may have
affected the results of DUI
tests.
Two judges, Sarasota Coun-
ty Judge David Dinkin and
Manatee County Judge Doug-
las Henderson, will preside at
Tuesday's hearing.
"All the judges have de-
ferred to those two in this
case," Harrison said. Harrison
said Dinkin and Henderson
were members of a tribunal
that presided over previous

hearings.
New machine
Harrison and other attor-
neys who joined the case rep-
resent more than 150 DUI
defendants.
Intoxilyzers in other Flor-
ida countries have been im-
properly modified with uliap-
proved parts, according to
Harrison.- ,
Attorneys claim that
breathalyzer results are in-
consistent at best because the
inside of each breathalyzer is
different.
A three-judge panel ruled
in December 2005 that the
state cannot simply introduce
breathalyzer results in a DUI
case. It must prove their relia-
bility by bringing in scientists
to examine and attest to the
machine's software.
Additionally, the tribunal
ordered the state to turn over
all information about the In-
toxilyzer 5000 breathalyzer to
attorneys challenging the ma-
chine's reliability and accur-


That information includes
the manufacturer's "trade se-
cret" source code in the soft-
ware that runs the machine.
Harrison said a new
breathalyzer model, the
Intoxlyzer 8000, is going into
use. He said he has not looked
at it yet. ',
"Specific questions we are
dealing with here do not
apply to the new intoxilyzer,"
Harrison said. "The new
(machine) raises a whole new
set of questions."

Wake-up call for Lady Indians


CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Team Witte

to debut at

Sal & Tony's

Relay for Life has become
a traditional event in the
Venice area.
On an April day each year,
fundraising teams gather at
the Laurel Nokomis School
and do laps around the track
to benefit the American Can-
cer Society.
The community has done
a good job, each year raising
in the neighborhood of
$100,000 toward the fight
against the dreaded disease.
Here's how it works. Each
team member takes pledges
for laps turned. The idea is
for each team to have at least
one person on the track for
all 18 hours of the event. Each
team camps out all night at
the Laurel Nokomis School.
Teams develop their own
little themes.
One team particularly at-
tached to the local sports
scene is "Team Witte."
This is the team's first year
in the relay. It is in memory
of Pam Witte, a well-liked
and loved person who was
very active in youth sports.
I Pam bravely battled breast
Cancer for a long time before
passing away last summer.
Her husband Greg was a
Little League coach and still
a big-time VHS Indian fan.
Son Shawn excelled for Ven-
ice Little League and as a
pitcher at Venice High.
Daughter Danielle was a play-
er on last fall's State Cham-
pionship volleyball team. ,
Those three, along with
numerous friends, form up
Team Witte. The theme cen-
ters around Pam's favorite
musical artist and song Tina
Turner's "Simply the Best."
"As a friend, Pam was sim-
ply the best," said Donna
Bradley. "Those we hold in
our hearts never leave us."
Hence, the big effort to-
ward the April 21 Relay for
Life.
As a pre-relay fundraiser,
members of Team Witte will
take part in a "Witte's Wait-
resses Night" Monday, April
10, at Sal & Tony's Restau-
rant, which is located in the
Publix shopping center on
the island.
All tips and donations
from 5-9 p.m. will go to Team
Witte's efforts for Relay for
Life.
The waitresses will include
the likes of Bradley, Shirley
Boone, Bobi Botts, Chris Ci-
millo, Nancy Dalton, Mischia
Dansak, Sharon Del Puppa,
Barb Graf, Chris Hassler,
Michelle Hazeltine, Carol
Horan, Colleen Hutchinson,
Terri Kaufman, Deb Licata,
Debbie Mason, Lois Medevic,
Janet Moore, Diane Rostad,
Michele Ruane, Debbie Scott,
Deb Shafer, Rose Stertz and
Karen Stewart.
The Garbrandt Soccer
Complex at Wellfield will be
overrun by soccer kids,
coaches and parents this
Saturday as the annual
Sharks Tooth 3v3 Tourna-
ment unfolds.
There will be 100 teams
registered and about 700-
800 people cruising the fields
at any given time.
The public is invited to
add to the madness.

Heading into spring break,
the Venice High varsity soft-
ball team was as hot as wild-
fire. Ten days later, the Lady
Indians looked like a totally
different team.
Venice blew a seemingly
safe, six-run lead and had to
rely on a bases-loaded walk
in the bottom of the seventh
inning to force in the deciding
run in an 8-7 victory over vis-
iting Bayshore Tuesday night.
It certainly didn't look like
the same Venice team that
captured first place in the
Spring Fling Tournament in
Brandon March 25.
In fact, it didn't even look
like the same Lady Indians
who socked the Lady Bruins
by a 15-3 count in Bradenton
March 7.

East Seventh Street, said this
week it would take someone
getting killed before some-
thing is done about the road.
Many people in the area
had reason to hope improve-
ments were coming, after the
recent news that Sarasota
County was extending Pine*
Street north of East Dearborn
Street and also expected to
widen East Dearborn Street.
"I thought if they were
going to do that, then they
would widen the road," said
Brenda Groves of Poinsettia
Avenue. "It's a death trap
when we try to get onto Pine."
But there are no plans to
widen the road north of the
Charlotte County line, said
Sarasota Road Program
Manager Clarke Davis. The
widening is not in the five-
year Capital Improvement
Program, the county's bud-
get guidelines for major
projects.
There were high hopes by
. residents on the Charlotte
County side of Pine Street
that when their portion of


the road was widened over
the course of several years,
Sarasota County would
quickly follow suit.
Davis said the road does
not rate very high on the
county's priority list, primar-
ily because of its limited
traffic and the fact that Win-
chester Boulevard is the loca-
tion for the planned Engle-
wood Interstate Connector.
"Currently, we have high-
er priorities for widening,"
Davis said.
Sarasota County has pur-
chased much of the land t~at
would have extended Pine
Street north to U.S. 41 and
eventually to Interstate 75.
, That path was considered
a likely route for the connec-
tor until Charlotte County
built Winchester Boulevard.
The news that the road
will not be widened, potent-
ially for more than a dec-
ade, is a. disappointment for
Iachetta.
"If you want to make a
left-hand turn, people don't
pay attention to the merge,"
she said. "I don't know what
can be done until the road is
widened all the way."
At the county line, there
are East Seventh Street,
Poinsettia Avenue and the
Lemon Bay Professional Cen-
ter, each adding traffic to a
spot where the merging
takes place.
Groves said it typically
takes her five minutes to get
off her street before she feels
comfortable to enter Pine
Street. '


SUN PHOTO BY BOB REDDY

Even with several signs warning motorists to merge left on
Pine Street, drivers typically wait until the last moment to do
so, creating a scary situation for others.


The speed limit is 35 mph
for traffic heading north from
South McCallRoad.
There is a merge-left sign
at East Fifth Street, and a
right-turn-only and other
warning signs at East Sixth
Street, but drivers still wait


until they are about to run
off the road at East Seventh
before they merge left. .
"They just don't help
enough," Iacheftta said. .

:BY SUSAN E.HOFFMAN
'NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR

If it weren't for the" fact
that many animals raise their_
"young in spring, this would
.-be the ideal time of year for
.:prescribed burns, according
to some officials.
S" used to think that forest
'fires were bad, but now I.,
understand how they help
improve habitat," said Charlie
,Sample, past president of the
tVenice Audubon Society and
'director of the Audubon
,.Center.
Sample said that carefully
controlledd burns rejuvenate
fthe soil by reducing the
-iamount of brush and return-'
ling nutrients to the soil.
(i "It's especially good for
';.scrub jays," he said. "They
.:need the periodic clearing."
Sample said he's also seen
hummingbirds and wood-
peckers return to an area
after a burn.
Amy Meese, Sarasota
0County environmental spe-
ocialist, said scrub jays need
land to be cleared, by fire or
other means.
: "If the vegetation is too
'grown up, the scrub jays
can't bury their acorns
Theree" she said.
Sample said there's one
drawback.
"These bums usually hap-
,pen in spring because it's
dry and usually not too
'windy," he said. "But that's
,also the time that most
wildlife are raising their
young. So, yeah, I'd prefer it
to be done at another time."
He acknowledged, though,
that this is also the time of
.... yea,,,iWhen,.,the brusb, is at its
driest and the wind is lessof,
-- .,a factor.
Sarasota County Natural
Resource Manager Belinda
Perry admits that sometimes
wildlife may be killed or in-
jured during a prescribed
`burn.
"But the native species
have evolved over thousands
of years along with natural
fire," she said. "These peri-
odic burns are part of the
natural course. Animals that
have more tendency to be
injured are those not native
to the area, such as armadil-
los or feral hogs."


cribed burns


Experience matters
Within a few days after a
burn, Sample said, palmettos
start to grow and wildflowers
bloom. Some pine trees need
fire to open their cones and
deposit their seeds. Fires
may actually enhance some
slash pine stands.
Fires can also start from
natural conditions such as
lightning, Sample said, but it's
impossible to control where
those natural fires will strike.
"There won't be firefight-
ers stationed around the
perimeter of a natural fire,
like you'd have in a prescrib-
ed burn," he said. "They fly
helicopters to see when con-
ditions are right."


Sample believes many
people fear prescribed bums
because such a fire raged out
of control several years ago.
He understands why people
are fearful, but he believes
the contractor the county
used at the time was not as
experienced.
"From what I've seen,
Chuck Johnston, who is now
with the county, seems to be
very experienced," said Sam-
ple, who expressed confi-
dence that controlled bums
are well managed by Sara-
sota County.

Before there was a town
named Nokomis, the Curry
family had put down roots in
the area.
The southwest coast area
of Florida is nothing if not
fluid. Meandering channels
intersect with rivers, riders
with canals, canals with estu-
aries and bays. It's a spider
web effect much like the
many strands linking family
histories family histories
like that of Gerald and Dee
Curry, of Nokomis, who cele-
brated 60 years of married life
last Nov. 27. The couple can
claim family residency back
to 1868, a year in which there
was no Nokomis and Venice
was known by the name
Horse and Chaise.
Investigating the warp and
weft of their family tapestry,
Dee Curry, the family's ama-
teur genealogist, set out to
have a little fun exploring her
and husband Gerald's roots.
What she found was surpris-
ing. Within the tangled web of
family ties were strands con-
necting the Curries with the
Rev. Jesse Knight, founder of
both the Nokomis Methodist
Church and the first school
house; it was a combination,
perhaps spurred on by the 15
children he sired, which
reportedly prompted him to
say "They're going to learn
about God, and they're going
to learn how to read and
write."
Scottish in origin, the origi-
nal Currys arrived in the
American colonies before the'
Revolutionary War, settling
first 'in the Carolinas. Tories,
they left their adopted home
following the defeat of the
British, emigrated to the
Bahamas and eventually
returned to an independent
America, stopping briefly in
Key West before settling along
the shores of the Manatee
River in Bradenton.
"The rest of the family
eventually came on down this
way," said Gerald, whose
roots on his grandmother's.
side can be traced as far back
as 900 AD and to royalty in the
personage of Olaf, King of
Norway.
"The family has lived in
Florida for 150 years," he
added, noting that his par-
ents, grandparents and great
grandparents are buried in
the Jesse Knight Cemetery on
Colonia Road in Nokomis.
The cemetery, maintained by


Gerald and Dee Curry recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary on Nov. 27.


the Venice-Nokomis
Methodist Church, is next to
the first home of the church.
"The name Gerald has
been carried down tluoughf
four generations," Dee Curn-
said proudly. "I don't think
there are very many people
who can say that. Gerald's
Uncle Richard was with the
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Department, as was his
nephew, Kenny; Kenny's son
Ryan is an officer with the
Venice Police Department.
"There are a lot of us
around," she said, with a
smile. "Remember. Jesse had
15 children. Gerald and I are
the top of the heap right now.
"The Knights came here
first, and I think the Currys
went to Bradenton. The one
reason there are so many
Curries around here now is
because Gerald's grandfather
sired 10 children and home-
steaded this whole block. As
each of his 10 children mar-
ried, lie would give each a
two-and-a-half-acre block of
land" on which to build.
One home, that was built
by son Claude T. Curry in
1908, still stands in Nokomis.
:1 "It's just about a mile and a
half down the road." he said.
I"My niece Carol and her hus-
band Sam live there now."

Gerald Curry is a descendent of the Rev. Jesse Knight, founder
of the first church and school house at Horse and Chaise
(Nokomis-Venice).


Any remodeling at the
Sammons' home has been
planned to be as true to the
original as possible, a rarity in
an era of rapidly constructed
developments stressing uni-
formity not originality.
"This used to be called
Curry Road and the area
Curryville, but not officially,"
she said. "Officially it's Dona
Way."
Among other unique Curry
historical reference stories is
that of how Shake-it Creek got
its name.
"Shake-it was named by
my grandfather," Gerald said.


This is the house that Claude T. Curry built when he homesteaded about 40
acres.


'At that time, it was just a little
creek, but he still had a hard
,time getting his oxen to cross
it. He had a deer hide, and
when he shook it, it would
sound like thunder. Well, that
frightened them, and off
they'd go; they would run
across. Ever since then, it's
been known as Shake-it
Creek."
Dee's sleuthing into the
family genealogy closet also
unearthed a connection to
Sen. Augustus Wilson, who
served both in the Florida
House of Representatives
(1911) and in state senate

(1915) following a 33-year
stint as M\akka's postmaster
or assistant postmaster. He
served as a state census taker
in 1885 and again in 1894.
According to records at the
Sarasota County Historical
Center, Gus Wilson arrived in
Myakka in 1877, opened a
general store, the Myakka
Supply Company, and bought
land for cattle ranching. He
later donated land for the
Myakka School and served on
its school board for eight
years. 1900 began another
spate of activity as Wilson
paid to extend the Sarasota
phone line to Myakka. He
bought the first gasoline-
powered tractor in Manatee
County, long before the first
automobile arrived and,
along with Bill Rawls, provid-
ed land for the Myakka
Methodist Episcopal Church
and cemetery.
Indeed, in the fluid south-
west coastal area of Florida,
the multiple Curry strands
continue to add to the web
that is the area's historical
legacy.

tributed to this story.

FST educators return from visit to Tel Mond, Israel


BY AMY SCHAFER
GUEST WRITER
As a part of a cultural
exchange, FST recently took
its Write A Play program to the
children of Tel Mond, Israel.
With the support of a grant
from the state of Florida, Kate
Alexander, Adam Ratner and
Ashley West spent five days
working with teachers and
students, teaching them the
art of playwriting. The cultur-
al exchange will continue this
May when two Israeli teach-
ers travel to Sarasota for the
Young Playwright Festival,
held at Florida Studio
Theatre.
The connection to Tel
Mond was developed
through the Sarasota Sister
Cities Association (SSCA).
Students from Sarasota's sis-
ter cities including Tel
Mond began submitting
plays to FST's Young Play-
wrights Festival in 2001. That
same year, four young, win-
ning playwrights traveled to
Sarasota to participate in the
YPF Celebration Day. As more
and more international stu-
dents began submitting win-
ning plays to the festival, "the
next logical step was to send a
group abroad to encourage
them in their writing endeav-
ors," says Alexander.
As Tel Mond is one of
Sarasota's sister cities, the
SSCA was invaluable in pro-
viding support for the team.
Not only did SSCA partner on
the grant that provided funds,
they connected the team to
the educators and people of
Tel Mond, picked them up at
the airport, provided meals
and arranged for them to visit
museums and other cultural
centers. They also found host

families for Alexander, Ratner
and West.
"Staying with families who
live and work in Tel Mond
gave us an insider's experi-
ence of the country and cul-
tures," says West. "Our host
families were as diverse as the
country itself: a religious fam-
ily hailing originally from
South Africa, a Greek couple
whose families immigrated to
Israel after World War II and a
husband and wife who were
brought up in Israel."
Upon arriving at their first
stop, the'Nitzanim Element-
ary School, the artistic team
noticed an atmosphere differ-
ent from American schools
right away. The normal
sounds of children laughing,
playing and talking intermin-
gled with the strains of Israeli
folk music, which is piped
into the teachers' lounge,
hallways and playground.
While security guards are not
an uncommon sight in many
American schools, the guards


in Israel must carry guns to
protect the children. Even so, .
the guards, teachers and stu-
dents greeted their American
visitors with open and wel-
coming arms.
"The teachers seemed to
move and talk with an excited
air. They were happy to be at
the school," says Alexander.
"Simi, the principal, told us,
'We do not make much
money, but there is love here
at our school; there is love all
around.'-"
From the start, the team
enjoyed an incredible
amount of hospitality from
the teachers, the students and
their host families. "Every day
was an important day," says
Alexander. "Every day was
marked by ritual and celebra-
tion. I never felt like a visitor. I
felt like a family member."
"We were treated like su-
perstars," echoes Ratner. Im-
ages on the nightly news ha\ e
led many of us to assume that
Israel is a country full of vio-

lence and sadness. As Ilan,
the father of Ratner's host
family, told him: "You don't
know what it's like to send
your 6-year-old to school with
a gas mask."
While there is certainly
danger at times, the team
found that this did not affect
how the children approached
the theater exercises and
games. They laughed and
cried and freely expressed
everything they felt. Ratner
was impressed by the chil-
dren's abilities to be so able
and willing to connect to their
emotions, given the environ-
ment in which they live.
"They truly amazed me with
their level of commitment to
the workshop and the depth
.of their'emotions," he says.
Alexander wondered if the
children's ability to so easily


connect with their emotions
was due to the intensity of
their lives. "Every family has
its sorrow there. Everyone has
lost someone. Death and life
are intermingled so closely.
And yet, they defy fear and
live with joy instead," says
Alexander.
Besides teaching work-
shops, the artistic team also
has the opportunity to spend
free time with their host fam-
ilies, do some sightseeing,
celebrate Purim (a celebra-
tion of the book of Esther)
and exchange slang with the
children of Tel Mond.
"Sababa is Hebrew for
'very cool' or 'excellent,' ex-
plains Ratner. "We taught the
students 'Wassup' which is
shorthand for 'What's up?'"
For Alexander, Ratner and
West, the trip to Tel Mond was

rewarding and uplifting. But
mostly, they found it passion-
ate and intense. "There was
an intensity in emotion, in
the celebrations, in the every-
day rituals, in the experi-
ences," says Alexander. "It
was a life-changing, life-
affirming trip."
And it was also Sababa.
Florida Studio Theatre is
grateful to Sarasota Sister
Cities Association and to the
state of Florida, Department
of State, 'Division of Cultural
Affairs, The Florida Arts
Council, and the National
Endowment for the Arts for
providing the funding for
FST's trip to Tel Mond,'Israel.

public relations for Florida

Jones goes from a sparrow te amuse (and back again)


STAFF REPORT

When Jannie Jones trav-
eled to Sarasota in early
September, she didn't expect
to still be here during the
months of January, February
and March. But Jones, who
originally came down to
appear in "Ethel Waters: His
Eye is on the Sparrow" was
subsequently cast in FST's
Cabaret tribute to the piano
greats of the 20th century,
"Piano Men."
Now Jones' stay will be
even longer thanks to Florida
'Studio Theatre's decision to
extend Piano Men" and bring
back "EthelWaters: His Eye is
on the Sparrow." The exten-
sion of "Piano Men" will be at
the Gompertz Theatre for a


limited-run engagement.
Then, "Ethel Waters: His Eye
is on the Sparrow," written by
Sarasota playwright Larry
Parr, will return to FST on
April 13, at the Gompertz
Theatre.
Switching gears from Ethel
Waters to Piano Men was a
welcome challenge and
change for Jones. "I under-
went a complete mental
change," she says. "I went
from a very intense place in
my head, playing a real-life
person who lived such an
incredible life, to rehearsing
for 'Piano Men', where I was in
a very creative place where I
could play and discover, 'Who
is this character and where do
I want to take her?'" .
"EthelWaters: His Eye is on


the Sparrow" chronicles the
life of a woman who came
from the bottom and, despite
all the odds, found her way to
the top. Born in 1896 to a
teenage rape victim, Ethel
Waters pulled herself out of
abject poverty to become one
of the foremost African-
American performers of her
generation. Her career span-
ned more than seven decades
and took her from vaudeville
stages to Broadway and
Hollywood.
Looking at Waters' life,
there were not a lot of options
or choices for an African-
American woman, particular
ly one in Waters' impover-
ished circumstances. But she
didn't-let the lack of opportu-
nity stop her. "The inspira-


tion of this piece is that in
order to get to reach your full
potential, you have to keep
moving," says the show's di-
rector Dennis Courtney.
"That's the message. You've
got to do it. It won't come to
you. Ethel made her own life
happen."
"EthelWaters: His Eye is on
the Sparrow" not only chron-
icles this amazing career, but
also gives insight into the
human being behind the
famous persona. Playing
Waters was not only a chal-
lenge for Jones, but also a
labor of love. Jones sees
Waters as a pioneer and feels
that by playing the role, she's
not only paying homage to
the Academy Award-nomi-
nee but "standing on the


shoulders of Ethel."
Jones, along with Chaun-
dra Cameron, originated the
role when "Ethel Waters: His
Eye is on the Sparrow" made
its world premiere in October
2005. Jones has appeared in a
number of other FST produc-
tions including "It Ain't
Nothin' But the Blues," "Too
Darn Hot" and "The All Night
Strut." Jones also originated
the role of another influential
African-American entertain-
er, Alberta Hunter, in Larry
Parr's "My Casile's Rockin'."
For now, audiences will have
to wait another eight weeks or
so to see Jones reprise her role
as Ethel Waters. But they can
catch her in the Cabaret
revue, "Piano Men," appear-
ing alongside Scott J. Pearson


and David Abeles.
"Piano Men runs through
March 25 in the FST Gold-
stein Cabaret and from
March 28 through April 2 in
the Gompertz Theatre. Tick-
ets are $26-29.
"Ethel Waters: His Eye is on
the Sparrow" begins its limit-
ed engagement return on
April 13.
Tickets are $32-$34. Tickets
for either "Piano Men" or
"Ethel Waters" may be pur-
chased by calling 366-9000.
As a constituent member
of the Professional Alliance
for the Performing Arts
(PAPA), FST thanks the city of
Sarasota and Sarasota County
for generous grants that sup-
ported free performances in
this community since 1977.


FWCS premiers 'Wizard of Oz' with live orchestra


STAFF REPORT

The Florida West Coast
Symphony said that its Flor-
ida premiere of "Oz with
Orchestra" on April 5 will fea-
ture an appearance by Mar-
garet Williams Pellegrini, one
of only a few surviving
Munchkins from the original
1939 movie, "The Wizard of
Oz." Pelligrini will greet pa-
trons, autograph photo-
graphs and judge the kids'
costume contest prior to the
performance.
"Oz with Orchestra" is slat-
ed for Wednesday, April 5, at
7:30 p.m., at the Van Wezel
Performing Arts Hall, Leif
Bjaland conducting. The
major sponsors for "Oz with
Orchestra" are Marsha and
Don Panuce of Advance Con-
trolsInc.
When Margaret Williams
appeared in The Wizard of Oz
as "Sleepyhead" and "Girl
with the Blue Flower Pot Hat,"
she was 15 years old, one of
the smallest and youngest of
the Munchkins. Of the 124 lit-
tle people appearing in the
film, only nine are still living,
and only six are willing and
able to travel. Pellegrini, who
earlier had worked with the
famous "fan dancer" Sally
Rand, appeared in pictures
only once after the filming of
"The Wizard of Oz" in 1938.
Married in 1942 and nowwid-
owed with two children, sev-
eral grandchildren and great-


Munchkin Margaret Williams Pellegrini with Florida West Coast
Symphony principal cellist Christopher Pegis.


grandchildren, she lives in
Arizona.
A classic event for all ages,
"The Wizard of Oz" will be
seen and heard for the first
time in Florida in a magical
new format with the Florida
West Coast Symphony. The
live orchestra will accompany
the voices of Judy Garland,
Ray Bolger, Bert Lahr and Jack
Haley, conveying the bril-
liance and clarity of the origi-


nal score as it has not beerin
heard since it was first record-
ed. This is powerful new way
of experiencing the 1939 film)
directed by Victor Fleming
with score by Herbert Stot-
hart and Harold Arlen.
The kids' costume contest
will take place promptly at 6
p.m. and is open to young-
sters up to the age of 18. The
first prize will be a live "Toto"'
Cairn terrier (with parental


permission). In addition, the
orchestra is auctioning off a
pair of "ruby red" shoes cour-
tesy of Reason's Shoes on St.
Armands Circle. The shoes,
madeby StuartWeitzman, are
encrusted with Swarovski
crystals and are valued at
.$1,860. Heel style and sizing
will be customized for the
auction winner.
"Oz with Orchestra" gar-
nered rave reviews and drew
eager audiences in excess of
5,000 at each showing of its
premieres last summer at
Wolf Trap, with the National
Symphony, and Ravinia, with
the Chicago Symphony. Ac-
cording to The Washington
Post: "It was an exciting
evening, and the grander
message of this event was
truly something I found in my
own back yard: the five chil-
dren sitting next to me who
had never seen the movie
before. They were as enrap-
,tured at their first sights of the
Emerald City as I was seeing it
with new eyes,"
Tickets for adults are
priced at $25, $32 and $40.
The Florida West Coast
Symphony has made up to
400 tickets available for chil-
dren (K-12) at $15.
A limited number of VIP
seats at $60 are also available.
Both the VIP seats and the
children's tickets will be allo-
cated on a first-come, first-
served basis. For tickets, call
953-3434.

Letting go of stress, achiness and catering issues


J.J. Andrews
BACK OF THE PACK
A kink has developed in
my left shoulder, and I'm not
sure why.
My first thought was I must
have slept on it wrong. Friday
morning was the first I noticed
it, and the pain caused me to
skip the morning run with the
Venice Runners Group.
Then, as I paid the month-
ly bills Sunday evening, the


thought occurred to me.
It's the wedding caterer's
fault.
Remember the vegan cater-
er I bragged about seven weeks
ago, the person we found after
the previous guy wanted to
serve leg of lamb? After ignor-
ing several e-mails and calls
from The Fianc6e, the vegan
caterer dumped us by e-mail
when informed we needed to
have a signed contract.
"I believe that with your
$1,000 budget for food, it
would greatly benefit you to
use Publix or Atlanta Bread
company to cater sandwiches
and salads," she wrote in her e-
mail sent SIXWEEKS BEFORE
THE WEDDING, after verbally
committing to cater FOR THAT
FOOD PRICE A MONTH EAR-
LIER!
Ugh! And I wonder why I
have a kink in my neck.


So I set down my pen and
checkbook, took off my watch
and went out for a run under
the light of a setting sun.
A run will fix that
Leaving the watch at home
Sunday evening was a wel-
come change. I did not allow
the number of minutes and
seconds to define the quality
of my run, as I weaved
through Venice's neighbor-
hood streets toward Venetian
Waterway Park bike path.
Instead, the amount of
sweat and heavy breathing
defined success as I soaked in
my environment.
There was a bicyclistwho ap-
peared to be egging me on as if
we were supposed to be racing.
There was a woman walk-
ing her cat on a leash. The cat
darted spastically as I ap-
proached, trying to hide


behind blades of grass.
There was the large pile of
boulder-like rubble at the end
of the path, which I assumed
will go toward. Intracoastal
Waterway construction.
And there was me becom-
ing lost and trapped behind
the ominous walls of Bellagio's
gated community, scurrying
around like a mouse in a maze
trying to get out.
I made the mistake of turn-
ing my leisurely run into a
wow-let's-see-where-that-
path-goes run. Every side-
walk gate leading out had a
deadbolt, and I completely
lost the hidden entrance.
Luckily, after a bit of run-
ning around, I slipped
through an open gate right
after a car entered.
Take a 'time out'
So aside from the fear that


the secret Bellagio Police would
taser me, Sunday's run resolved
that shoulder kink I'm con-
vinced was caused by stress
instead of sleeping on it wrong.
An article inside the April
edition of Runner's World,
"Time Out" by Gabriel Sher-
man, offers a hint as to why:
"Letting go of time has the
added advantage of allowing
you to stay mentally fresh.
Always being conscious of
the time can cause elevated
anxiety,' says (Ph.D. and
sports psychologist Frank)
Webbe," according to Sher-
man's column.
The article deals mostly
with improving race perfor-
mance, but I immediately
keyed in on the mentioning
of "elevated anxiety."
I have become notorious
for either racing the watch or
other running group mem-


bers during training runs.
These daily escapes from
reality have turned into bat-
tles for speed.
That's not to say those bat-
tles are not needed. I just
shouldn't be conducting
these campaigns every single
time I run.
Sometimes, you run just to
feel good, witness a schizo-
phrenic cat on a leash or have
people call the cops on you be-
cause you're not exclusive
enough for their neighborhood.
As for the wedding caterer
(who is NOT local, if you were
wondering), who needs items
like Spanekopita and Tiropita,
artichoke tarts and seitan
puffs during a reception?
I'll take a big sandwich
over any. of that fancy stuff
any day.
(Just don't tell The Fiancee
I said that.)


'70-something' gives fitness clubs a run for their money


DICK HARRISON



I just enrolled in an athletic
club, determined to try it for a
couple of months to see if I
have the discipline and time


to stick to it. I also bought a
copy of the South Beach Diet
and intend to carry it when I
use the treadmill at the club,
understanding that a little
extra weight helps burn calo-
ries.
Positive results are already
becoming apparent. Without
counting carbs and practical-
ly no effort, my wallet has lost
weight.
It's been hard to avoid the
signals that something has to
be done. When I go through
the checkout at the super-
market, the baggers ask if I
want them to push my cart to
the car.


The unkindest cut of all
came when I went to pick up
a 40-pound bag of fertilizer at
a local garden store, and the
middle-aged sales lady asked
if I was sure I could make it to
the car. 'Are you suggesting
it's time to try a little Grecian
Formula to get rid of the
gray?" said I. Slowly looking
me up and down, she
responded: "It wouldn't help."
To a "seventy-something,"
first-time visitor to an athletic
club such as this one the first
impression can be a little
intimidating despite manage-
ment's obvious effort to make
the place as attractive and


user-friendly as possible.
At first glance the only
piece of equipment I'm sure
I'll know how to use is the
overstuffed couch in the
snack bar. Beyond that are
row upon row of solidly built
apparatuses, some of which
look vaguely like the, rack
used by the Inquisition to
convert heretics to believers.
There are hundreds of
ways to rupture one's self sci-
entifically while watching TV
or waiting for your digital
heart rate monitor to "flat
line." The combined weight of
all the exercise machines,
barbells and dumbbells has


to exceed the total poundage
of the asteroid that hit the
earth a few million years ago
and wiped out all the
dinosaurs.
I did sit down on one of the
machines despite a sugges-
tion by the pretty trainer who
sold me on improving my
physique that I first purchase
a "gel pack" (a comfort aid
designed to come between an
aging butt and a new station-
ary bike seat). A couple of
rows in front of me an
absolutely gorgeous, flawless-,
ly fit and tanned, blonde, fel-
low club member was using a
bike just like the one I was on,


effortlessly pedaling in a sym-
phony of perfectly articulated
grace, if you get my picture. I
studied her technique dili-
gently, determined to observe
aqd apply all I was seeing to
my own efforts.
Sure enough, in no time at
all my heart rate had
increased dramatically and I
had broken a light sweat on
my forehead. With a final
appreciative, head-to-toe
appraisal, I decided, "Well,
old man, it's about time to
stop staring and start pedal-
ing."

Venice resident.

DAVE BARRY
HUMOR COLUMNIST

This classic Dave Barry
column was originally pub-
lished on May 25, 1997.
I believe that, in general,
women are saner than men.
For example: If you see
people who have paid good
money to stand in an outdoor
stadium on a freezing De-
cember day wearing nothing
on the upper halves of their
bodies except paint, those
people will be male.
Without males, there
would be no such sport as
professional lawn-mower
racing.
Also, there would be a 100
percent decline in the annual
number of deaths related to
efforts to shoot beer cans off
heads.


There would be no such
words as "wedgie" and "noo-
gie."
Also, if women were in
charge of all the world's
nations there would be I
sincerely believe this virtu-
ally no military conflicts, and
when there was a military
conflict, everybody involved
would feel just awful and
there would soon be a high-
level exchange of thoughtful
notes written on greeting
cards with flowers on the
front, followed by a Peace
Luncheon (which would be
salads, with the dressing on
the side).
So I sincerely believe that
women are wiser than men,
with the exception of one key
area, and that area is: clothing
sizes. In this particular area,
women are insane.
When a man shops for
clothes, his primary objective
- follow me closely here is
to purchase clothes that fit on
his particular body. A man
will try on a pair of pants, and
if those pants are too small,
he'll try on a larger pair, and
when he finds a pair that fits,
he buys them. Most men do
not spend a lot of time fret-
ting about the size of their


pants. Many men wear jeans
with the size printed right on
the back label, so that if you're
standing behind a man in a
supermarket line, you can
read his waist and inseam
size. A man could have, say, a
52-inch waist and a 30-inch
inseam, and his label will
proudly display this informa-
tion, which is basically the
same thing as having a sign
that says: "Howdy! My butt is
the size of a Federal Express
truck!"
The situation is very differ-
ent with women. When a
woman shops for clothes, her
primary objective is not tor
find clothes that fit her partic-
ular body.
She would like for that to
be the case, but her primary
objective is to purchase
clothes that are the size she
wore when she was 19 years
old. This will be some arbi-
trary number such as "8" or
"10." Don't ask me "8" or "10"
of what: That question has
baffled scientists for cen-
turies. All I know is that if a
woman was a size 8 at age 19,
she wants to be a size 8 now,
and if a size 8 outfit does not
fit her, she will not move on to
a larger size: She can't! Her


size is 8, dammit! So she will
keep trying on size 8 items,
and unless they start fitting
her, she will become extreme-'
ly unhappy. She may take this
unhappiness out on her hus-
band, who is waiting patient-
ly in the mall, perhaps brows-
ing in the Sharper Image
store, trying to think of how
he could justify purchasing a
pair of night-vision binocu-
lars.
"Hi!" he'll say, when his
wife finds him. "You know
how sometimes the electricity
goes'out at night and ..."
'Am I fat?" she'll ask, cut-
ting him off.
This is a very bad situation
for the man, because if he
answers "yes," she'll be angry
because he's saying that she's
fat, and if he answers "no,"
she'll be angry because he's
obviously lying, because
none of the size 8s fit her.
There is no escape for the
husband. I think a lot of unex-
plained disappearances oc-
cur because guys in malls see
their -wives unsuccessfully
trying on outfits, and they
realize their lives will be easi-
er if, before their wives come
out and demand to .know
whether they're fat, the guys

The other day, my wife was
in a terrific mood, and. you
know why? Because she had
successfully put on a size 6
outfit. She said this made her
feel wonderful. She said, and
this is a direct quote: "I
wouldn't care if these pants
were this big (here she held
her arms far apart) as long as
they have a '6' on them."
Here's how you could get
rich: Start a women's clothing
store called "SIZE 2," in which
all garments, including those


that were originally intended
to be restaurant awnings, had
labels with the words "SIZE
2." I bet you'd sell clothes like
crazy. You'd probably get rich,
and you could retire, maybe
take up some philanthropic
activity to benefit humanity.
I'm thinking here of profes-
sional lawn-mower racing.

Sands of time


BY BOB.REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Two projects partially
funded with federal dollars
that could be held up by
paperwork received a boost
Wednesday from the county
commission..
The board was having a
discussion about its Sarasota.-
Manatee Metropolitan Plan-
ning -Organization project
priorities when it was asked
to move federal money plan-
ned to bring paved shoulders
and resurface improvements
to Fruitville Road to the
reconstruction and widening
of East Dearborn Street in
Englewood.
Clarke Davis, the county's
road program manager, said
the reason this heeds.to hap-
pen is a case of paperwork
requirements.
Projects that receive any
federal money must meet
requirements that involve
reams of paperwork and are
time-intensive.
"There is an extensive
checklist for compliance,"
Davis said.
The federal requirements
for the Fruitville Road project
have not been met while they
have for East Dearborn.
Davis said that by the com-
missioners shifting the feder-
al money to the East Dear-

born project, both projects
will be able to move forward
in an expLditvd ma Tanei.
If thl-' .Iiedal le'viewt. pro-
cess does not run into any
roadblocks, the East Dear-
born work could start; sme-
time in the fall and would
take more than a year toicom-
plete, said Dennis LeLdo. the
county's manager for th pro-
ject. The total cost of the work
is about $12.8 million.
"It is swapping fitudihig to
free us of the papei \ork, and
we can. use c(ounrll money
and stay where we are in the
process," he said. "f hi gets
the wheels to mo\ve on both."
The board unanimous!
approved the action,; and it
must now be approved by the
MPO board. It will require an
amendment to the trans-
portation improvement pro-
gram.
The board also agreed to
add a $2.5 million Sarasota
County Area Transit transfer
station in Englewood to its
Transportation Regional In-
centive Prpgram.
The county already has
Honore Avenue work project
as part of its TRIP priority list,
but Davis said, additional
projects could be added, just
in case the state has more
money to offer.

receives $18 million in TRIP
money each year. While Davis
said the Honore requests total
about $5 million for the right-
of-way purchase and even
more for construction, add-
ing the transfer station could,
help put the state money to
better use. This is especially
true if more money is avail-
able this year.
The commissioners debat-
ed whether to make their sec-
ond priority -for the TRIP
money the construction costs
for Honore.
Commissioner Shannon
Staub supported the idea of
putting some of the money
toward the transfer station,
which would be used as a
garage to store and work on
SCAT buses in South County,
avoiding the need to bring
them all the way back to
Sarasota.
Commissioners also dis-
cussed an FDOT offer to re-
pay a "$15 million loan from
the county" to start the
widening of U.S. 301 to Man-
atee County line as sort of
loan from the county to be
repaid at an unspecified time
by FDOT. :o
The commissioners were
skeptical about the funding,
which would come in the
form of a loan for the project'
with no guarantee when the
county would ever be repaid.


Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson said the money would
only cover one of the three
sections of the project. The
.FDOT money for the project
was pushed out of FDOT's
five-year work program.
The commissioners are
,meeting with the Sarasota'
City Council Friday, and the
project is on the list of things
to discuss, County Adminis-
trator Jim Ley said.
"There is a push for more
local government to take ovet
state arterials," Ley said. "\Ve
have trouble with the idea of
the loan from an organization
which has no intention to pay
for it."
Patterson said the county
was "being sucked into a vor-
tex" on the project.
Davis said he is unsure
why the state needs to borrow'
money from the county.
"We need to push it on
them to front-end the work
program with a promise to
repay themselves," Davis
said.
The commissioners agreed
to bring this idea up to the
FDOT representatives who
will be at the joint meeting
with the city on Friday.

Elegance in

Simplicity

The 17th Annual Plantation
Community Foundation's
fashion show provided spec-
tacular prizes, a luncheon and
fashions.
Co-chairs Rose Frey and
Julie Noble and publicity chair
Shirley Kasko made sure the
word got out, and about 300
women filled the dining room.
Fashions provided by Stein-
Mart;, Mark, Fore and Strike;
The Golf Shop; the Tennis
Shop; and Brides of Venice
showed off new colorful
spring styles.
Models Debby Miller,
Sheila Suffredini Marlys
Roslanky, Linda Decker,
Margaret Holmes, Linda
Tucker, Maureen Richards,
Ruth Zook, Betty Bauer, Eva
Lindfors, Carol Bell and
Nancy Strenk looked glam-
orous and trendy.
Committee chairs Mary
Lou Sunderlund, Marcia
Majors, Madlyn Nelson, Joan
Van Alstyne, Wynne Dallam,
Joy Coval, Joyce Paxton and
their committees deserve a
bravo. Pianist Laura Noschese
provided nice background
music for the event. Artist Peg
Morgan created a beautiful
program cover.
Even thoUgh she was new
at the job, Julie Noble narrated
the fashions with clever anec-
dotes that added to the fun.
She even wore a silly hat. Vee
Garry-Chiulli is an old hand at
narrating fashion shows. This
pro added the charming, ele-
gant touch to the script that is
her hallmark. The staff served
a luscious chocolate lava cake
for dessert.
The Plantation Community
Foundation is supported by
dues and contributions from
its members. Venice and sur-
rounding areas benefit from
their generosity. In some way,
we are all touched by their
willingness to share.
While the show title
"Elegance in Simplicity" creat-
ed a nice atmosphere at the
luncheon, this group's theme
could easily be "Elegance in
Serving Humanity."
Bravo to everyone involved
with this terrific event.
Getting to know each
other
One of the great benefits of
living in small town U.S.A. is
having a chance to get to know
candidates running for public
office up close.
Supporters of Republican
candidates Nancy Detert and
Vern Buchanan recently held
receptions, giving everyone a
chance to hear the candidates'
views.
One of our best
Eric Detert attended Taylor
Ranch Elementary School and
always had a gift for thinking
out of the box. Music became
his passion, and he learned to
let his spirit shine through his
music.
At the fundraiser for his
grandmother, Nancy Detert,
Eric played the keyboards, cel-
ebrated his 18th birthday and
enjoyed listening to all the
nice comments that came his
way. Eric and Nancy have
always been like two peas in a
pod. Eric has even spent time
in Tallahassee with grandma.
Eric Detert is one of the
nice young men who splits his
time between Venice and
North Port, and he is never too
busy to spend time with fami-
ly. He is one of the grandsons
who helps make Venice spe-
cial.


Former Sarasota County School Board member and longtime
friend Larry Helmuth introduces congressional candidate
Nancy Detert at a local reception.


Allan Kollar, Nancy Hoover and Murray Chase celebrate a spectacular opening night for
"Greater Tuna" at the Venice Little Theatre. Allan and Murray star in this hilarious two man show
and Nancy Hoover directs the interesting personalities living in and around "Greater Tuna."The
show is a sensational must see. It runs through April 15. Call 488-1115.


Marilyn Hendryx, Vee Garry-Chiulli and Carol Bell get ready to show off the spring fashions
they brought to the Plantation Community Foundation fashion show. Marilyn and Vee repre-
sent Stein Mart and Carol models clothes from Stein Mart and Mark, Fore and Strike.


Rose Frey and Julie Noble celebrate their work as chairs of the
Plantation Community Foundation fashion show.


Mother and daughter Pam Nickell and Amy Tougaw enjoy the
reception for congressional candidate Nancy Detert. Pam is
Nancy's longtime friend and administrative assistant. This.duo
has climbed many mountains together.


Jason and Leigh Hughes host a reception for congressional candidate Vern Buchanan. Jason
views Vern as a wonderful role model.


r.


Doris Watson, Barb Diehl and Mary McHugh sell tickets for the
silent auction at the Plantation Community Foundation fash-
ion show.


Anyone who knows Nancy Detert knows of all her accomplish-
ments she is proudest of her family. She enjoys introducing
former New Jersey Governor Christine Todd Whitman to her
grandson Eric who was celebrating his 18th birthday at the
reception for Nancy. Eric wowed everyone at the reception
with his music. Eric plays the keyboard and provided classical,
popular and jazz for the evening.


From left Marlys Roslanky, Linda Decker, Shiela Suffredini and Debbie Miller get ready to model
clothes from Mark, Fore and Strike at the annual Plantation Community Foundation fashion
show.


Mary Kraushaar, Judy Rich and Linda Mittelstaedt greet guests as they arrive at the Plantation
Golf & Country Club for the annual fashion show.
