City Manager Marty Black wants
the new police chief to put an
end to the tolerance of racial,
gender and age discrimination
within the department.

BY JJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Tolerance often is placed in the
"good" column of workplace attributes.
According to City Manager Marty
Black, tolerance at Venice Police
Department has been for discrimination
based on race, gender and age.
He believes a "handful" of officers and
supervisors as shown in city studies
and online chat rooms byVPD officers -
use racial, gender and age profiling
against each other, creating tension
within the department.
Supervisors have ignored these prob-
lems for years, creating an "environment
of tolerance that has led to chaos," he
said.
Black's selection for new police chief,
Julie Williams, was confirmed by Venice
City Council on Tuesday. The 49-year-old
retired deputy chief of the Lansing Police
Department is expected to resolve these
longstanding personnel and manage-
ment issues.
The city manager expects there to be
additional management changes, rec-
ommended by Williams, within the next
three to six months.
"I'm demanding change," Black said
in an interview. "I'm expecting the
department a year from now to not look
the same, administratively. If it doesn't,
we've failed to make change."
Williams, the first female ever to be
named chief of police in Venice, retired
to Sarasota in 2005 after city budget

A former Venice High
School teacher and coach
entered an 11th-hour guilty
plea to charges of sexually
abusing a male student 25
years ago. He also pleaded no
contest to tWo other sex
charges.
Monday morning, the day
the trial of James LaMorte Sr.
was scheduled to start, he
appeared in court with his
attorney, Martin Hernandez.
"He pleaded guilty to one
count of sexual assault and
battery on a victim over 12
years old by a person in cus-
todial authority," Hernandez
said, "and no contest to an-
other count of sexual assault
by a person in custodial
authority, and one count of a
lewd and lascivious act in the
presence of a child under 16
years old."
Assistant state attorney
Dawn Buff said LaMorte's

Good morning, Gondolier
Sun subscriber,
ROBERT AND EVELYN DUNN


It was Academy Day at
Venice High yesterday as stu-
dents showed off school pro-
jects and pitched member-
ship to fellow students, entic-
ing them to join one of the
school's five career-oriented
school academies.
Academies are like a
school within a school,
designed to set high school
students onto a career path.
Also called Small Learning
Communities, they make
Florida's large high schools
smaller by pooling career-
minded students into smaller
groups.
The smaller groups give
teachers a better chance to
follow and feed student inter-
ests. More important, acade-
mies make the high school
experience more relevant for
teenagers, say educators.
Venice High's academy
program was implemented
five years ago under school
reform efforts championed
by then-assistant principal
Candy Millington.
No dummy
But it was Stan D. Ardman

to teach Emergency Medical
Technicians.
"We put together our pa-
tient just this week and al-
ready I've killed him two
times," joked Marilyn Ruth-
ardt, SLA director. "It's a fan-
tastic teaching tool."

other participating medical
offices and facilities.
Medical academy director
Brenda Randazzese said stu-
dents who complete the
academy will leave with a
Certified Nurse Assistant cer-
tificate and can go immedi-
ately from high school into
the workforce.
Those who opt for Man-
atee Community College's
nursing program will un-
doubtedly graduate in less
time than the average under-
graduate, she added.
"Venice Regional Medical
Center is willing to pay for
tuition and textbooks at MCC
if graduates commit to work
for them in just about any
capacity," Randazzese said.
"It's a wonderful opportunity
for kids to get their college
paid for."
The school is accepting
applications until April 19 for
next year's program. Only 25
incoming freshmen and 25
incoming sophomores will
get the nod.

Pinebrook extension

From the Jan. 3, 2001, Venice Gondolier Sun


BY ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER


With reconstruction and
widening of U.S. 41 Business
scheduled to begin in April,
Venice Planning Commission
members expressed concern
Tuesday over the speed with
which Sarasota County and
the developer of Pelican
Pointe Golf & Country Club
are proceeding with plans to


extend Pinebrook Road south
from Venice Avenue to Center
Road.
The road would run along
the western border of Pelican
Pointe, and could alleviate
some congestion during
busy traffic periods.
At issue are credits the
Pelican Pointe developer,

county for building the
road; and whether requiring a
developer to pay both for
construction of a road and
impact fees for the same road
is constitutional.
Pinebrook Road is about 1
mile east of U.S. 41 Bypass. It
currently extends only one-
tenth of a mile south, on the
west boundary of the Venice
Commons shopping center.
"We have been working
with the county staff for sev-
eral years about trying to get


the road built," Rodgers' at-
torney, Jeff Boone, said. "The
main issue all along has
been the impact fee credit."
Construction of the road
would cost approximately $2
million, plus another $1.5
million for right of way,
Boone said.
"The county has been
unwilling to put it on the 5-
year road program because
then they would have to give
impact fees credits."

Nokomis pavilion opening delayed until 2008


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Relaxing on a Nokomis
beach park bench soaking up
the warm Southwest Florida
sunshine should be paradise,
but this scene is not likely to
improve much for visitors and
tourists for at least another
two years.
In the meantime, tourists
will continue to be greeted by
"Danger Keep Out" and'
"Warning No Salvage" signs
and will be gazing at a fenced,
decaying pavilion when visit-
ing Nokomis Beach.
The likely completion of
the renovation of Nokomis
Beach Pavilion at the end of
Albee Road on Casey Key will
not be before April 2008. The
start date for restoring the for-
mer pavilion has been put
back to April 2007 and in the
worst-case scenario could be
even later.
Rob LaDue of Sarasota
County Parks & Recreation
Services stated he understood
from the architect it would be
a 12-month construction job,
1jking completion into 2008.
Recently the project team
was pulled together to discuss
replacing the existing septic
tank system. According to
LaDue, it is a big job that
involves preparing an appli-
cation to the state of Florida.
He reiLendal attended a
c t"ig mL Tallahassee on the
project. The existing system
:u.cu,.,ni well, but does not
meet state requirements.


SUN PHOTO BY ROGER BUTTON
The renovation of the Nokomis Beach Pavilion has encountered more delays, with the hoped-for start date pushed back until
next year.


Permitting by the state and
Sarasota County will take
some time and then the pro-
ject has to be put out for bids.
"It is likely to be a year
from now before the start of
development," confirmed
LaDue.


He is awaiting consultants
to advise and redesign the
public information pavilion
reconstruction signs at Noko-
mis Beach.
Recent electrical circuit
problems affecting one of the
two lines supplying the pavil-


ion failed, and the county has
secured a temporary genera-
tor. Vandalism in county
parks, including Nokomis
Beach Pavilion, has become a
major problem and a park
ranger program is under dis-
cussion.


Renovation of the pavilion
was first expected to start in
November 2004. Delays
arose, some due to holdups in
grant funding. Last Dece-
mber it was anticipated the
work would begin in August
2006.

Venice ends reclaimed





water contracts


Condo and homeowner associations won't be
able to keep their lakes filled with treated water


from the city any longer.

BY JJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Venice has exceeded its
permitted storage capacity
for treated wastewater by
more than 670 million gallons
the past 19 months.
Those were the figures
revealed by the city Tuesday
after 10 condominium asso-
ciations were recently noti-
fied they must find another
way to fill up their stormwater
ponds.
Venice Utilities Depart-
ment no longer needs these
private stormwater ponds to
store excess reclaimed water,
which is treated sewage
water. The city and Sarasota
County interconnected their
lines in August 2004, and
Venice now sends all of its
extra water to the county.
The discovery that Venice
has averaged an extra 35 mil-
lion gallons of water per
month is troubling. City offi-
cials only know this because
state and federal environ-
mental investigations forced
the city to begin keeping
track.
City Manager Marty Black
said the city cannot say "with
complete certainty" how
much extra treated waste-
water was being generated
before August 2004 because it
wasn't being measured -
which was the heart of the
felony criminal case the city
pleaded guilty to inr Decem-
ber.
He also could not say


where that reclaimed water
was going.
"That interconnect (with
Sarasota County) became
critical (in settling the court
cases)," Black said. "I don't
know where else they
would've pumped that. That's
a lot of water."
Questioned
Much of this dates back to
2001 when Venice exceeded
state permits that restricted
how much reclaimed water
could be dumped into Curry
Creek and Knight Trail Park.
In late 1999, the city admit-
ted to exceeding permitted
wastewater capacity, paid a
fine to the state and was
granted special permission to
dump the extra water.
At least, that was the pros-
ecutors' theory for what the
city did.
The figures measuring
how much water the city is
shipping to Sarasota County
put into context for the first
time how much extra water
could have been dumped
outside of what 'the permits
authorized.I
Many of the former city
administrators and even cur-
rent Mayor Dean Calamaras
have questioned the severity
of exceeding permit restric-
tions and dumping too much
reclaimed water into the
environment.
The former city manager,
George Hunt, was once quot-
ed as telling prosecutors that
paying environmental fines


BY THE MONTH
Venice pleaded guilty last December to violating permit restric-
tions in 2001 concerning how much treated wastewater it is
allowed to dump into the environment, and then attempting to
cover it up. The city's flow meters were not active, so former utili-
ties workers are accused of making up the numbers.
For the first time, there are figures for how much extra reclaimed
water the city generates. Sarasota County utilities now accepts the
excess water and records how much 670 million gallons the
past 19 months.
Here are the month-by-month figures listed in millions of gallons

was a "cost of doing busi-
ness." The mayor recently
said the reclaimed water was
cleaner than the water al-
ready in Curry Creek, one
spot the city pleaded guilty to
dumping water.
Black said environmental
impact goes beyond contami-
nation and wildlife health is-
sues, even though that is a risk.
There's a flooding and ero-
sion question, he said.


"This goes beyond water
quality issues," Black said. "If
we were adding 92 million
gallons of water to a creek -
in just one month (like March
2005) what are you doing
to that creek's water flow? As a
city, we didn't pay close
enough attention to our per-
mit requirements."

Pigs going nowhere


BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


Fans of the artful pigs in
downtown Venice have only
two more weeks to enjoy
them.
Critics of the colorful fiber-
glass porkers don't think April
28 can get here soon enough.
For two years, artist-paint-
ed pigs have dotted the city's
rights of way in order to raise
money for Venice Art Center.
The permits were extended
by Venice City Council for an
extra year last spring after the
three dozen pigs were sold at
auction, much to the chagrin
of critics ready for the pigs to
go away after being on city
walkways since early 2004.
On Tuesday, council mem-
bers were disappointed when
City Manager Marty Black
said removing pigs from
downtown Venice by April 28
may be difficult.
"We've been in contact
with the Venice Art Center to
remove the pigs, and they've
been less than receptive,"
Black said.
The city manager said if
VAC does not, then he'll order
the public works department
to.
However, Black wants to
avoid that because "they
could become damaged," he
said.


You're in good hands.


COUNCIL WORKSHOP
Venice City Council will have
its strategic planning work-
shop today and Thursday in
the community room of
Village On The Isles, 930
Tamiami Trail. Today's work-
shop will be 8 a.m.-4 p.m., and
Thursday's workshop will be 8
a.m.-noon. This two-day ses-
sion is used by council mem-
bers to update the city's poli-
cy agenda. For more informa-
tion, call Venice City Hall at
486-2626.

Though he's never openly
opposed the promotion,
Black was not given the
opportunity to veto the Pigs
In Paradise. The promotion
already was approved when
he was named city manager.
It did inspire him to push
for creation of a Public Arts
Council to review all future art
displays for their "appropri-
ateness." Council voted
against that recommenda-
tion.
Other actions
Also at Tuesday's city coun-
cil meeting:
Venice Housing Au-
thority Elaine Rose Clarke
was named to fill the open
seat on the Venice Housing
Authority.

Venice Bypass with bike



lanes gets reluctant support


County commissioners question why
they're bothering with the design process when
there's no money available for construction.


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

The redesign of the Venice
Bypass will likely only have a
shelf life of three, maybe four,
years.
With that in mind, a deci-
sion to support bike lanes
along the 2.35-mile corridor
between Center Road and
Bird Bay Road, received re-
luctant support from the
Sarasota County commis-
sioners Tuesday morning.
The support was so weak,
the board divided 3-2, with
commissioners Jon Thaxton
and Paul Mercier wondering
why the vote was needed in
the first place.
At issue is the redesign of
the proposed widening of the
bypass by the Florida De-
partment of Transportation.
The original 1994 design is
outdated and a new design is
due to be sent to the Federal
Highway Administration for
formal approval in the fall.
The redesign shrinks the
width of the project to save
on the costs of right-of-way
acquisition and construction
costs, said Chris Piazza of
FDOT.
Piazza and Jeff Trim of
Wade-Trim Design offered
three options for the narrower
southern leg between Center
Road and Hatchett Creek.
If the design remains un-
changed, the project would
cost about $104 million.
The redesign is being done
to save costs, but it does not
spare 19 businesses near
Venice Avenue.
Options
The first option offered
would trim the road to 126-
feet, which would keep 12-
foot travel lanes, have a 4-
foot bike lane and 5-foot

sidewalk and would cost a
total of $64.6 million.
The second option shrinks
everything down to the state
minimum requirements for a
six-lane divided road of 106
feet. That means four of the
travel lanes would shrink to
11 feet, and the bike lanes
would disappear altogether.
The total cost would be about
$54.2 million.
The third option, which
was only recently conceived at
the request of Commissioner
Nora Patterson, adds back the
bike lanes, or 8 feet, and has
a total costs of about $62.1
million.
The commissioners agreed
to support the third option
primarily because the board
thought the cost difference
should not be so low, or a
mere savings of $2.5 million
versus the 126-foot plan.
Each of the commission-
ers doubted that the money
for the widening would be
available for several years
and the costs were only
going to continue to rapidly
increase.
Thaxton said everything
the board was being asked to
do Tuesday, which was to
support one of the options,
was ceremonial and has no
weight in the long run.
"We need to get off the
dime on this one," he said.
"We just approved a plan we
can't build and it will expire
and be unusable in three
years."
Mercier had similar reser-
vations, saying he can't sup-
port spending money on a
project when there is no
money to actually build
it.
"I am not going to play this
silly game with FDOT. The
process we are doing is bro-
ken," he said.


Weighing in
Commission Chairman
David Mills, who was one of
several board members who
insisted on the bike lanes,
supported the motion to have
a mid-width design.
"It is important that we
weigh in on this," Mills
said.
While Commissioner
Shannon Staub also sup-
ported the motion, she
agreed it was likely a waste
of time to do anything now
for a project she said may
not be built for 10 years or
more.
Piazza said that while there
is no money for construction
and right-of-way purchase,
the process is necessary to
keep it up to date and within
the FDOT scope of potential
projects.
In a side discussion, Staub
and Thaxton got into a de-
bate about the need to in-
clude the sidewalks.
Staub said she sees few
people willing to ride a bike
on the bypass and said they
should probably be on the
sidewalks, adding the bypass
is an inappropriate place for
people to ride a bicycle. The
ride through the downtown
area is a better and safer ride,
she said.
Thaxton vehemently dis-
agreed, saying "bicyclists and
pedestrians do not share side-
walks well."
He said he does not want
bicyclists to be given sec-
ondary status to vehicles
because he sees them as a
viable transportation alterna-
tive.
"We need to recognize the
needs for alternative modes
of transportation," he argued.
A formal public hearing
will be held during the sum-
mer to present to the public
the preferred improvement
alternative.

Board supports later


school closing tim

After rejecting an earlier school-start time,
Sarasota County School Board leans toward
a plan to add 30 minutes to the end
of the school day and still get kids


home earlier than last yea
BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Overtime for school bus
drivers may be all it takes for
the Sarasota County School
District to implement the new
extended school day.
After rejecting an earlier
school start time of 7:15 a.m.
for some Sarasota County
schools as a way to add 30
minutes to the school day,
administrators headed in the
opposite direction tack it
on to the end of the day.
Board members balked
last week at splitting the 30
minutes of additional in-
structional time between the
morning and afternoon ses-
sions if it meant starting
school any earlier. School
start times currently range
between 7:30, 8:30 and 9:30
a.m.
The additional half hour
is the cornerstone of Super-
intendent Gary Norris' NeXt
Generation Learning plan
supported by the March tax
referendum.
Ellery Girard, business
support services executive
director, drew kudos from
board members for coming
up with revised bus routes to
accommodate the lengthier
school day without having to
purchase additional buses or
hire more drivers.
The school district's 13-
year replacement cycle al-
ready calls for 27 new school
buses to be delivered over the
summer. Girard's plan will
require only an additional 15
school buses to handle the
extended day. Keeping the
buses scheduled for replace-
ment in service another year
will also help.
"At this rate we expect
next year to get kids home
earlier than this year," Girard


ar.

said.
Bus routes will still take
between 30 minutes to an
hour for the average student,
under the plan, and increased
buses and revamped routes
will mean students shouldn't
arrive home any later.
Overtime
To make it work, the dis-
trict will ask some bus drivers
to work a 10-hour day, or a
50-hour week.
"We can get the buses,"
said associate superintendent
Bob Early. "It's more of
a challenge to get drivers. It
builds in significant efficien-
cies having the bus tied to a
driver at 50 hours per week."
Early said he believes
there are enough drivers who
would find the extra income
enticing, and the savings on
salaries and benefits pack-
ages would be substantial.
The alternative is to buy
between 66-100 new buses
at $80,000 each, and hire
many more drivers, he said.
The board was presented
two scenarios. One staggers
starting and afternoon bell
times between a half hour


es

and an hour, in order to
hold the latest school closing
times to ,3:45 p.m. This sce-
nario would require 91 addi-
tional buses and limit stops
for choice, charter and mag-
net programs located outside
of the district boundaries.
A second scenario, also
based on a 45-minute turn-
around time for bus drops,
would require an additional
66 buses. It would result in
no school ending later than
4 p.m. Choice, charter and
magnet programs would
again be compressed and
breakfast programs could
be affected, said administra-
tors.
Least disruptive
School administrators re-
examined each of 250 bus
routes using GPS technology
purchased last year to come
up with the plan. GPS units
tied into a central computer
system visually monitors the
time and location of every
school bus on a given route,
allowing administrators to
more easily identify time sav-
ings.
"The team was encour-
aged to think outside the box.
First, we told them to make it
work without using any addi-
tional money; then we asked
them what would it look like if
they could have a little

tolerance policy on race and

officer has resigned because
"he would not work for a
woman," Black said, and the
city manager suspects addi-
tiopal VPD employees will be
"strongly encouraged to re-
sign" because of similar be-
liefs.
"If they have those beliefs


about their co-workers, how
are they going to treat our cit-
izens and visitors?" Black

those feelings, those beliefs

nandez said.
LaMorte's $100,000 bond
was continued.
LaMorte's maximum pris-
on exposure on the charge is
30 years, Buff said.
Buff would not say if she
will push for the maximum
sentence.
"I will certainly be arguing
for a substantial amount of
time," Buff said.
DCA tips the scale
Hernandez said the plea
was precipitated late Friday


afternoon by the Second
District Court of Appeal in
Lakeland.
"The court denied our
petition (to. throw the case
out because the statute of
limitations had expired), so it
was a trial or a plea,"
Hernandez said.
According to Venice attor-
ney Robert Harrison, who
represents one of the two vic-
tims in the case, LaMorte
appealed the state's intent to
get around the statute of lim-
itations and press charges in


the decades-old crimes by
invoking Florida State Statute
715.15(b).
"Everything was on hold
until 4:30 p.m. Friday,"
Harrison said. "Depending on
how the DCA ruled, there
might not have been a trial."
Cuts losses
ES.S 715.15(b) states that a
prosecution can move for-
ward even if the statute of
limitations has expired "for
any offense based upon mis-
conduct in office by a public


officer or employee at any
time when the defendant is in
public office or employment
within two years from the
time he or she leaves public
office or employment ...."
Harrison informed prose-
cutors of the little-known law
last summer.
Harrison said once the
DCA cleared the way for trial,
LaMorte probably tried to cut
his losses by pleading.
"He bought another four to
six weeks of freedom (pend-
ing the sentencing date) by


pleading," Harrison said.
"And, the judge could look
favorably on him because he
spared the families and vic-
tims the embarrassment of a
trial."
Harrison said that had a
jury convicted LaMorte, he
would have been taken into
custody immediately.
Wired
The allegations against
LaMorte surfaced in early
2005 after five men,;!'now'
adults, came forward and


gave statements to police.
LaMorte, according to in-
vestigators' reports, made
"some admissions" and
"apologized" to the alleged
victims.
The admissions reportedly
came when a victim's friend
consented to wear a "wire" and
confront LaMorte. The conver-
sation took place at a local park
earlier this year and was moni-
tored by investigators.

.Kudos to county for emergency planning.







-Kudos to county for emergency planning


county governments in Southwest
Florida often find themselves in the
business of doing much more than the
traditional functions of such entities.
For example, in the absence of municipal
governments in communities like Engle-
wood, counties have assumed a larger share
of providing urban services. It can be a ratio-
nal, cost-effective approach to the problems
of municipal growth.
But beyond those instances of govern-
ment being forced to become creative are
other scenarios unique to Southwest Florida
that require a higher level of county govern-
ment efficiency. We speak of hurricanes and
tropical weather, and how counties here


must be prepared to deal with the after-
effects spawned by such disasters.
There are no hurricanes looming at pre-
sent, and residents have largely recovered
from the aftereffects of two years of cata-
strophic weather in the gulf. But while the
winds are mild and the skies are clear,
Sarasota County officials are working to get
ready for the big wind next time.
The county's human services agencies
have been added to the mix of key players
responsible for hurricane and disaster
response planning. That decision grew out of
ad hoc assistance provided by the human
services divisions of county government.
Although Sarasota County escaped much


of the devastation wrought by the storms of
the past two years, residents here have had to
face the fallout of such disasters.
From the scores of people made homeless
by Hurricane Charley who sought temporary
housing in South Venice to the many
refugees from Hurricane Katrina who made
their way here, Sarasota County has had to
come to grips with the needs of victims of
natural disasters.
In a recent Sun story by reporter Bob Reddy,
county officials told how they cobbled together
services for the new, temporary residents. That
experience taught human service officials and
others that maybe it would make sense to bet-
ter prepare for such contingencies.


And that's exactly what's happening.
Officials from county departments charged
with health, human services and other basic
needs are now meeting as part of a coordi-
nated hurricane and disaster response team.
What that will mean in the future is that basic
needs such as food and transportation will
be factored into immediate hurricane relief
plans, making response to such concerns
proactive rather than reactive.
The best assurance of a coordinated, cost-
effective response to disaster is good plan-
ning. That's what county government is
doing while the sun is shining, and that's
what will make all the difference when the
skies turn gray.


Airport news,



good and bad


Let's start with the good
news about the airport: As
part of updating the airport
plan required by the Federal
Aviation Administration the
public and city council are
getting the opportunity to
look more closely'at the' air-
port and its operations.
The bad news is that the
process, including an ap-
praisal of airport property
rentals, has' demonstrated
that the city has failed to
manage the airport efficiently.
The good news is that City
Manager Marty Black and
Airport Manager Fred Watts,
along with city council, will
focus considerable attention
on improving situations that
Black and Watts inherited, for
the most part.
Rent right
A "limited" appraisal/sum-
mary report of the fair market
rental and fee estimates for
various properties at the air-
pdrt has been prepared by the
firm of Slack, Johnston, Mag-
enheimer. For the most part
the properties studied five
land.parcels, Lake Venice golf
course, Venice Municipal Mo-
bile Home Park, aeronautical
buildings, land and pavement
and airport users fees gen-
erated fees falling below fair
market value. Those fees go to
operating the airport.
Ironically, only the Lake
Venice golf course is apprais-
ed as paying a reasonable
rent, no thanks to the past
efforts of the Venice Golf
Association and its attorney,
E.G. "Dan" Boone. They per-
suaded then-city manager
George Hunt and the then-
council to pressure the city
attorney to stop studying the
lease so council could ap-
prove it.
That led to a long fight with
the FAA that cost the city fed-
eral airport funds until finally
the lease was renegotiated to
a higher figure. The current
runways, now in poor condi-
tion, would probably have
been repaired in recent years
if that battle had not stopped
federal funding.
The appraisers suggest the
city use the report to negoti-
ate rental adjustments with
existing and future tenants.
Watts said he has begun that
process, but he is dealing for
the most part with long-term
leases, so prospects are un-
clear.


'Minimum' standards
The airport has minimum
standards, adopted in 1999,
that govern the development
and operation of the airport.
These standards provide clas-
sifications for airport opera-
tions and set minimum space
requirements for operators.
The report states, "It is evi-
dent that the airport has
selectively implemented the
minimum standards in leas-
ing of airport property ... ."
The report, more than 200
pages in length, goes on to
cite specific buildings and
related spaces.
One example given was
Building 35, leased for devel-
opment of a private corporate
hanger: "The site does not
comply with the minimum
.50-acre site size and the
building has neither -access
from a public right of way
(Airport Avenue) nor paved
vehicular parking consistent
with the use."
Low or no fees
Building 8, a T-hangar
building, was constructed in
1984 with a lease due to ex-
pire in 2008. The report states,
"Instead of allowing the lease
to terminate, in 2003 the ten-
ant was granted a new lease
for an additional 20 years ....
The granting of the new lease
... virtually assures the airport
will not benefit from rental of
the improvements as the
building will be 40 years old at
the end of the lease."
Tie-down fees (for planes
secured on paved ramp areas)
average $52 a month at simi-
lar airports sampled. Venice
charges $40.
Rental car concession fees
can provide additional rev-
enue to the airport. Conces-
sion fees are typically payable
at the airport based on rental
of vehicles originating there.
Venice does not have a con-
cession fee structure at the
airport.
Venice also does not
charge landing fees. Since
larger nearby airports do,
people knowledgeable about
the airport say the city is
attracting jets that are avoid-
ing fees at Sarasota and Fort
Myers. These sources say that
a number of users from Boca
Grande find the airport con-
venient for charter flights.
Even the rents at the mo-
bile home park are below
average. And while there is no
wish to make those rates
exorbitant, Black has recom-
mended raising them to $275
per pad, a figure consistent
with the appraiser's findings.
Subbed out
A serious issue involves
sub-leases. A recent example
involves a nonprofit group
that rented a hangar, then
subleased part of it for more
than the basic rent to the city.
While in this case the char-

Theaters: One way in, one way out


Editor:
We were pleased when the new Frank Theatres opened here
in Venice and have been steady customers since then. What we
can't understand is the design, more particularly the approval
of the building with regard to safety (fire). How could the fire
inspector allow the opening to take place?
When you enter the individual screen rooms, you must go
down a long hall (narrow); then turn and follow one aisle on
one side only to find a seat, thereby imprinting the way out in
your brain. The seats nearest to their aisle fill up first, causing
the next customers to squeeze past all others to sit down.
In case of a fire on that aisle side, you would have to climb
over rows of high, movable seats and a railing, then make your
way out. In a panic, most people would disregard other exits
and think, "the way in is the way out."
Now keep in mind the percentage of senior people who are
not agile enough to attempt climbing down and over or mov-
ing quickly. Can you see people eight or 10 rows up crawling
over others to get out?
On every one of our visits to Frank Theatre their fire hazard
has been recognized and discussed by the patrons. In one case,
someone had an "accident" in the room we were in. Luckily,
they were the farthest away from the exit aisle and we didn't
have to pass over or through the mess but just smell it. But
what if the accident had happened on the one exit aisle?
Either way the desire to gain a couple rows of seats and the
judgment of the fire and building inspectors have put people at
risk. The general public isn't blind to these problems why are
those who design, inspect and pass them?

Some facts to balance
out the rhetoric

Editor:
Immigrants have always
been the backbone of the
United States of America as
well as the scapegoats for cur-
rent political woes.
When businesses felt
threatened or Congress felt
the need to support them and
bolster their own incompe-
tence, laws banning or re-
stricting the immigration of
certain peoples have been
passed (take the laws ban-
ning or restricting the Chi-
nese, the Irish and others). All
these laws have been re-
pealed since they were un-
just, immoral, racist and
more often than not uncon-
stitutional.
It appears we have not


learned the lessons history
would teach us and we will
again fall victim to rhetoric
instead of facts.
Fact: Immigrants usually
pay into the Social Security
pool but never collect.
Fact: Immigrants usually
do not use the social services
network for fear of being de-
ported (the Cubans have
been an exception, but that is
another story).
Fact: Immigrants usually
work in low-paying jobs most
Americans would not do, i.e.
back-breaking and hot field-
work.
Fact: Immigrants usually
work in jobs that could not
afford to pay minimum wage
because they would go under
(an exception would be the
construction business).
Fact: Immigrants are usu-


ally too busy working as
many jobs as possible to feed
their families (either here or
in their native countries) that
they themselves do not learn
proper English.
Fact: Children of immi-
grants who do use the school
system and learn English usu-
ally go on to be productive
citizens either in this country
or in their native country.
Fact: The United States of
America has always stood for
a fair chance, where if you are
willing to work you can enjoy
a better life for yourself and
your family.
I ask, why should the facts
of life change? Are we as citi-
zens of this country ready to
give up everything it has
stood for in the name of
rhetoric and mass hysteria?
Where would any of us be
if someone else had not stood
up for and with our ancestors
(an exception would be
Native Americans or would
it, since they came across the
Bering Straits)?

Water warning
rings hollow
Editor:
In regard to the article
"Swiftmud says save water," I
would like to respond that the
hollow plea tends to fall on
disbelieving, if not deaf ears,
as we read daily and see all
around us, the uncontrolled
building of thousands of
additional homes.
If indeed there is a prob-
lem, how can any intelligent,
concerned adult condone
exacerbating an already exist-
ing concern with such
thoughtless disregard of ap-
parent facts and figures, not
to mention the health and
welfare of the entire area?
Are not support services
integral to building plans?


Where is the water going to
come from? Is there no long-
range planning?


Diane Frost

They're 'illegal'
immigrants for
a good reason
Editor:
Our 11 million illegal im-
migrants have finally become
a serious problem for our
county. What should be done
with these people? Send them
back? Or let them stay?
The farmers, contractors
and service areas claim they
need the illegals because
Americans won't do the jobs.
That's nonsense. It's because
the pay is too low. If the
employers raised the wages,
many Americans would ac-
cept these jobs.
The politicians are now in
a quandary about how they
should handle the immigra-
tion dilemma. The border
states are being overwhelmed
with illegals. Their health-
care systems are strained and
schools are overcrowded.
Many illegals have little or
no education. They come
here because life is much bet-
ter than where they lived.
That's understandable. All
people want to better them-
selves. However, they bypass
the immigration system,
which has long lines, a five-
year waiting period, and they
also must learn English to
become a citizen.
Congress can't just give the
invaders amnesty. They sneak
into our country unlawfully. A
longer, higher border fence is
not the answer. It will only be
breached.
Perhaps the immigration
system should be reviewed
and upgraded, and they
could issue more green cards.

Marina study a waste of money


Not feasible. I am outraged that the city applied for $2 mil-
lion of taxpayer money to fund a study to determine that a
marina is feasible on the ICW at the airport. This feasibility has
been reported fo the city by a local Sarasota County represen-
tative from the South West Regional Harbor Board, which indi-
cated there were too many objections by local, state, county
and federal agencies concerned with the environment and
safety. Tides actually could not flush out a marina that is 5
miles away. That Would cause stagnant water and pollution,
and possibly lead to diseases. This shows no benefit to resi-
dents, except to the developers. Two hundred to 400 slips for
who? Condo owners? Access would require new roads and
other facilities for storage and law enforcement. It will raise
taxes and bring many new problems. The airport should be
considered for use of this land for improvements. This request
for $2 million for a study that has the answers already is really
stupid. I do not understand the thinking of elected officials.
Every taxpayer should write to the U.S. Department of Housing
and Urban Development and object.


FEMA trailers. The city
manager is concerned about
the FEMA trailers sitting out
on Jacaranda, across from
Cracker Barrel and McDon-
ald's. For one, it's not in the
city of Venice, yet. When they
were sitting up at Laurel, he
tried to get them out of there
so they could be developed. I
wonder if that's gonna come
in. Interesting thought.

esting, we've lost all of our

and right. When is this going

not prevent that practice for
profit-making firms. Watts said

creates a situation where a

ing in the mayor's term (after

Parks needed. Where is the

Sawgrass? We haven't built

maximum of three terms
combining both roles. A per-
son in his or her second term,

to one three-year term as

required after a person serves

youth in our county?
Raise the age. Should Flor-
ida raise the dropout age to

guidance counselors had not

drop out of Venice High.

The picture shows a bottle of
Bud Light. Yes, that's really
what you want to high-five
and give the schools the
thumbs up with the Bud Light
bottle in the picture.
Robbed. Two weeks ago five
restaurants and stores were
robbed inVenice. I wonder why
we didn't see anything about it
in the Gondolier Sun, but there
was a big article in the Sarasota
Herald Tribune. Hear no evil,
see no evil maybe. Maybe
something for the new chief of
police to look into.


modification might be appro-
priate for this specific situa-
tion, and suggest that a sitting
member be allowed to serve
two terms as mayor if elected
during his or her term of
office.
If a person has completed
three terms, then the one-
year layoff before running
again seems appropriate to
encourage new blood on the
council, and new appoint-
ments to committees.


Time to go with the flow


DAVID DUNN-RANKIN



The price you pay for water
is going to rise. How much
your water rate increases is
now in the hands of your
elected city and county offi-
cials.
Local governments that
agree to buy water from the
Peace River Water Authority
will receive the cheapest wat-
er. Local governments that
insist on building and owning
their own water supply will
cause their citizens to pay
higher prices for water.
The Southwest Florida
Water Management District
made clear last week that all
counties and cities must turn
over their future water pro-
jects to the Peace River Water
Authority in order to receive
Swiftmud funding that pays
up to half the cost of all eligi-
ble projects. Common sense
also tells us that large regional
water projects, with eco-
nomies of scale, can provide
water much cheaper than
small projects.


This means if your city or
county insists on developing,
owning and controlling fu-
ture water projects, then you
will pay a much higher price
for water. Here are some
potential examples.
Sarasota County commis-
sioners have suggested Cow-
pen Slough, located in Sara-
sota, should be kept as a Sara-
sota County-owned water
project. Charlotte County
commissioners may have in-
dicated that Babcock Ranch
water would be for Charlotte
County citizens and not for
the region as a whole. The city
of Punta Gorda appears to
have suggested that Shell
Creek water belongs to the
people of Punta Gorda and to
no one else.
What Swiftmud correctly
stated is that we have a re-
gional water problem that
needs to be solved in a re-
gional way.
It may be hard for some-
one in Punta Gorda to under-
stand, but Shell Creek water
does not belong to the people
of Punta Gorda or Charlotte
County. Swiftmud has now
made it clear water belongs to
all the people of Florida.
Some county commission-
ers vocalized their disap-
pointment with Swiftmud's
action. Those speeches are for
the public because elected
officials already understand
that Swiftmud is merely im-
plementing the will of the
state Legislature.


Li: I FRS o A


To curtail the massive swarm
of invaders, Mexico and
Central America must coop-
erate.
The illegals will have to be
registered and get in line with
the legals. They have no right
to protest here. They broke
the law.


The United States wel-
comes all immigrants, if done
legally. Will our politicians
legislate a sensible bench-
mark? I doubt it. They're
afraid.
Walter Klinger
North Port


While it is certainly possi-
ble the future could call for a
change in the authority staff,
the first place change is need-
ed is at the board level. Each
county has reserved the right
to veto any Peace River Water
Authority project inside their
boundaries. The board mem-
bers representing the coun-
ties should now publicly
commit any water resources
inside their boundaries to be
available to the Peace River
Water Authority in whatever
priority the authority deems.
Fortunately, Swiftmud and
the state Legislature have
made this decision easier.
Either get committed to the
program or ask your citizens
to pay the price in the form of
higher-priced water.
Once the board members
commit to sharing all water
inside their boundaries, then
the authority staff can be
accurately evaluated.
DeSoto County Commis-
sioner Jerry Hill has said
everyone needs to learn to
work together if this new sys-
tem is going to work: "If there
is disagreement among our-
selves, how is staff going to be
able to move forward on any-
thing?"
Well said, Commissioner
Hill.

BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


After 10 months of often
confrontational negotiations,
Sarasota County has reached
an agreement on a three-year
contract with the firefighters
union.
The commissioners for-
mally approved the contract
settlement, which was agreed
on by the International
Association of Firefighters
Local 2546 Friday before the
negotiations went before a
special magistrate.
The contract will increase
the base pay for firefighters
about 6 percent this year and
5 percent in the second and
third year.
All firefighters will receive
the pay raise retroactive to
Dec. 13.
The agreement comes
more than two months after
the county declared an im-
passe in negotiations when
neither side could agree to a
middle ground on pay in-
creases and benefits.
In addition to the pay in-
crease, the contract includes
increases in speciality pay,
longevity pay and the uni-
form allowance.
The union will also be in-
cluded in the county's re-
structured health care plan,
which lowers the premium an
employee pays for coverage.
What it means is that a
beginning firefighter will now
start at $26,182 per year and
would be earning $28,886 by
the end of the contract.
Pay for a Step 1 firefight-
er/paramedic would range
from $31,733 to $54,444 in the
first year to a range of $34,986
to $60,024 by 2008.
The contract also has a
pay-for-performance plan
that provides pay incentives
for achieving certain goals.
The agreement is valid
until Sept. 30, 2008, and
affects the immediate budget
by $2.1 million.
County Administrator Jim
Ley said there are certain
aspects of the contract he is
not happy with, especially
raises for some of the top
members of the department.
Commission Chair David
Mills said after the long and
complicated discussion, the
county will be better off with
the settlement of the contract.
"It's time to move on," Mills
said.
The commissioners unani-
mously supported the action.

Faster Pastor nears
There is still time for local
clergy to get in the April 22
"Faster Pastor 50" at Charlotte
County Speedway.
Each spring, the Punta
Gorda paved oval holds a
special race for preachers,
pastors, reverends and men
of the cloth.
The third annual Faster
Pastor 50 will be run on
Saturday night, April 22.
The 50-lap race involves
pastors from different area
churches racing against each
other on the 3/8-mile paved
oval track.
The vehicles used will be
powered by 4-cylinder eng-
ines. Cars must be com-
pletely stock no Junk Yard
Dogs allowed.
Churches are urged to
find an old 4-cylinder car, an
energetic pastor to drive it,
and a huge throng to come
out to the speedway April
22 and cheer him or her
on.
The event can work as an
excellent fund-raiser for a
church. $7 from each $15
ticket sold can be kept by
the church. 100 fans times,
for example, $7 would earn a
church group $700.
To find out more about
the Faster Pastor race, call
Lisa at the speedway office
weekdays at 575-7223.

STAFF REPORT


A tight 3-2 victory over
Riverview Monday sent the
Venice High Indians (11-9)
into the next round of the
Sarasota Baseball Classic
Tuesday night.
The Indians were to play
Charlotte High, which beat
Gulliver Prep 5, the state's
top-ranked 3A baseball team,
7-5. Results of the Venice-
Charlotte game were not
available at press time.
VHS senior Jeremie Cook
got the win over Riverview
(12-8), allowing just four hits
in 6 2/3 innings, striking out
five and giving up only one
earned run.
Sophomore Jason Kauf-
man earned a save by getting
a called third strike on a
Riverview batter to end the
game after the Rams got
men on first and second due


to an error and a walk.
The Indians also only
managed four hits, but made
the most of them, thanks to
timely sacrifices.
Cook, who went 2-for-3 at
the plate, scored the deciding
run in the bottom of the
sixth. He singled, was sacri-
ficed to second on a bunt by
Trevor Pelletier and scored
on a single by Jordan Lucas,
who had 2 RBIs.
Lucas also drove in the
Indians' second run, scoring
Pelletier on a sac fly after he
reached second on a dropped
flyball and advanced to third
on a sacrifice bunt by Joe
Salomone.
Cook drove in the Indians'
first run with a single in the
third.

County commissioners OK


Shamrock Park expansion


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Kayakers and canoeists
may soon have a new place
to launch into the waters of
the Intracoastal Waterway
and Lemon Bay.
The Sarasota County
commissioners agreed Tues-
day to buy an 8-acre parcel of
land from the South Venice
Beach Endowment Trust for
$550,000.
The land is expected link to
the existing 82-acre Shamrock
Park, but the purchase is con-
tingent on getting an ease-
ment for a 60-foot sliver of
land on the west side of the
property, said County Parks
and Recreation General Man-
ager John McCarthy.
"The site has been used
for recreation, 'fishing and
picnicking by the residents
of South Venice and this pur-
chase would open it up to


all of the county residents,"
McCarthy said.'
He added that as the coun-
ty moves forward with its due
diligence process, it will
ensure the sliver of land that
runs on the east side of
Shamrock Park to Shamrock
Drive will come with a guar-
antee for public access.
The residents of South
Venice currently have that
access.
The land is within 60 feet
of the east boundary of
Shamrock Park and includes
500 feet of shoreline on the
Intracoastal and 300 feet on
Lemon Bay. The property
includes 3 acres of uplands
and 5 acres of wetlands.
McCarthy said the ideal
part of this purchase is that it
does not, have a steep rock
embankment on the water as
Shamrock Park does.
"This has a sandy shoreline
and people would be able to


go out into Lemon Bay, the
Intracoastal and Alligator
Creek," he said.
Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton wondered about the high
cost of the property since he
believes it would be virtually
impossible to build on be-
cause it is so environmentally
sensitive.
McCarthy said public own-
ership ensures public access
and the overall protection of
the property as the home-
owners in charge of the up-
keep are currently unable to
afford the continued cost of
owning the land.
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson said that the home-
owners had an unbelievable
asset and she believes that
is a big step to increasing
the county's waterfront ac-
cess.

money," Girard said.
Adding the 30 additional
minutes to the afternoon bell
time for all schools will result
in schools letting out at 2:15,
3:15 and 4:15 p.m.
Calling it the least disrup-
tive to schools, students and
parents, Girard said his
department came up with a
plan that results in seven
school dismissals at 4:15 p.m.
They include Sarasota, Mc-
Intosh and Heron Creek
middle schools, as well as
Pine View School and three
second-chance or charter
schools (Phoenix Academy,
Infinity and Sarasota School
of Arts and Sciences).
The district is relying heav-
ily on federal "choice" funds
to pay for the routes, in addi-
tion to its state and local
transportation funds, Girard
said.
Interestingly, Ellery said the
district saw a major increase in
the number of students using
the bus during the second
semester. He attributes it to
rising gas prices.
Roughly 200 more stu-
dents used the bus since

October, he said, indicating
that bus use usually tends to
decline after the second
enrollment count date.
Still to be fleshed out is a
possible change in the school
year start date being debated
in the Florida Legislature.
The board had offered to
hold public forums when the
earlier start time for the
school day was being dis-
cussed. Now that it's off the
table, it is unclear if the dis-
trict will conduct special
meetings to get parent feed-
back on letting school out
later if it doesn't mean chil-
dren will arrive home any
later.
30 minutes of what?
Board member Kathy
Kleinlein also asked Norris to
look at the possibility of using
some of the additional school
time in a different way. Norris,
who currently plans to split
the time up among each of
the classes, said he wanted
time to think about the
idea.
Adding 30 minutes on to
each school day would give

Kleinlein said she wants
the district to consider split-

part toward extending class-
es, and part toward a special

ject.
"Why not take a week of
that time and teach a civics

have to do it at the end of a

"I think the extra instruc-

Police identify dead body


BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER


The man who was found
dead Friday in a swale on
Landrum Street in North Port
was described by a friend as
good, but troubled.
Police identified the man
as David Alan Combs, 25, of
Rotonda East. He was found
by two construction workers
at about 7:30 p.m.
Visiting the construction
area Monday, Combs' long-
time friend Mike Slatt6ry
said he couldn't believe his
"happy-go-lucky" friend
died.
"He was a good guy, a
good friend," said Slattery,
who grew up and graduated
with Combs from Lemon
Bay High School in 1999.
The two played basketball
and football together.
"He was the kind of per-
son who would never hurt
anyone, or do anything to
cause someone harm,"
Slattery said.
Slattery said Combs was
part of a close-knit group of
friends. His mother Sharon
Combs agreed.
"He was a kind, compas-
sionate person," Combs said.


"I dearly will miss him. You
would not believe how
much support I'm receiving
from the guys he went to
school with. Everybody loved
him. He didn't have any
enemies."
Combs spent 18 months
at Valencia Community Col-
lege in Orlando, and another
18 months at Tallahassee
Community College in Talla-
hassee, before moving back
to Englewood in 2002.
Slattery said he last saw
Combs on Monday night.
However Sharon and her
husband, David, saw him
the afternoon he died.
"He was going to Boca
Grande to pick up his pay-
check and was coming
home. He was fine," Sharon
said.
Police are piecing togeth-
er the events leading to
Combs' death.
Waiting
On the day of Combs'
death, North Port Police
were called to the Lake
Geraldine area, off River
Road, because someone was
driving a truck erratically.
According to police, they
were unable to locate the


truck at the time.
North Port Police Capt.
Robert Estrada said police
were later able to track the
truck back to Combs. Later
that day, a Sarasota County
Sheriff's 'Office helicopter
was searching for what they
thought was a "person in the
woods," off Shaffer Avenue.
Authorities later found
Combs' truck in the vicinity.
Estrada said the medical
examiner's autopsy showed
no signs of trauma. Police
will have to wait for a com-
plete toxicology screen to be
completed.
Estrada would not com-
ment on whether they found
Comb's shoes, or on anything
found inside the truck.
"We are not ruling any-
thing out," Estrada said;
"including this being a possi-
ble overdose."
Combs never used drugs
or alcohol in high school,
Slattery said.
"We were athletes. It
(drugs and alcohol) was
something that was not
accepted," Slattery said.

County to survey garbage project


STAFF REPORT

Over the next two weeks,
about 4,500 Sarasota County
residents who participated
in the county's automated
garbage collection pilot pro-
ject will receive surveys ask-
ing their opinions about the
new collection service.
The survey marks the offi-
cial end of the six-month pilot
project, and the results will be
factored into the final deci-
sion whether the program
will be implemented county-
wide.
Sarasota County Solid
Waste began testing the auto-
mated carts last October, to
see if they would make
garbage pickup cleaner and
more efficient for area resi-
dents.
The automated carts hold


up to three normal garbage
cans' worth of material,
according to Solid Waste
Manager Larry Alexander.
They're resistant to animals
and prevent lids from blow-
ing away in heavy winds.
The program was tested in
neighborhoods throughout
the county that represent dif-
.ferent types of collection sce-
narios. There was no addi-
tional cost to the participants
for thecart during the pilot
project.
Now that the pilot project
is ending, Alexander encour-
ages all pilot participants to
complete the survey cards
that will soon be arriving by
mail. Alexander said a pre-
sentation to county commis-
sioners will occur in May.
For more information
about automated cart collec-


tion service, contact the
Sarasota County Call Center
at 861-5000 and ask for Solid
Waste Customer Service.

East Venice Avenue Plan


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


With a large portion of the
landowners wanting to keep
their options open, the plan
to change the way East Ven-
ice Avenue is developing
took a different track late
Tuesday.
After some compelling tes-
timony, the Sarasota County
commissioners opted to di-
rect staff to develop an incen-
tive program to encourage
block development rather
than forcing it on a commun-
ity that clearly doesn't want
it.
Tuesday was the second
public hearing related for cre-
ating the neighborhood plan,
and after not receiving any
input from landowners in the
neighborhood in March, the
residents were ready this time
with an informal survey.
The survey found that 73
of the landowners north of
East Venice Avenue were
opposed to any limitations
in their ability to develop their
land either on their own or
by selling to a developer who
would do the same.
Commissioner Shannon
Staub received the approval of
her fellow board members to
make simple changes, such as
imposing a sign ordinance
that would limit signs to mon-
ument-style and create an
access management plan
along the Venice Avenue-front
properties.
She also received the ap-
proval to have staff look into
incentives to encourage block
development, which could
include fast-track permitting
or the creation of a Pubic
Improvement District.
"Those who would want
to sell or develop, this would
not be an onerous thing,"
Staub said.


The survey was presented
by. Ron Thomas of Grace
Baptist Fellowship and he
said most residents want to
be left alone to do with their
property as they want.
Commissioner Paul Mer-
cier said the board only
wanted to come up with a
better form of development.
"If we do things right,"
Mercier said. "We want to
make it more efficient, which
could allow more density."
The planning area is bor-
dered by Interstate 75 to the
north, Jacaranda Boulevard
to the west, River Road to
the east and about a half mile
to the south of East Venice
Avenue.
The idea of the plan is to
create a neighborhood feel
without the area losing its
rural feel. The basic plan
called for two different guide-
lines for the north and south
sides of East Venice Avenue,
a grid system for the north
side and an interconnected
community to the south.
The plan is intended to
be the answer to a recent
spate of uncontrolled growth
in the area.
The commissioners went
so far as to impose a building
moratorium in October that


will last until July.
The board ruled at their
first public hearing March
21 that any rezoning or de-
velopment project already in
the county building develop-
ment process is exempt from
any future ordinance that
could be set in place. This
action created large zones at
either end of the planning
area with planned develop-
ment.
Mark Graham said he has
lived in the area for four
years and want to be able to
sell to a developer with the
county imposing any restric-
tions on development.
"Don't devalue our prop-
erties with forced intercon-
nection," Graham said. "You
lost your connectivity at
either end."
The board briefly consid-
ered rezoning the entire
neighborhood to add more
development density, but
they were advised that such
a process could be lengthy
and difficult:
The county planners will
now move forward with the
creating an ordinance to
form a plan with conditions.

BOCC kills East Venice land buy


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

The county's grand plans
for 28 acres of land at East
Venice Avenue and River Road
will have to be shelved.
A place for a new fire sta-
tion, a passive park and pos-
sible stormwater manage-
ment for the Englewood
Interstate Connector made
the original plan to buy the
property an easy decision in
January.
After a closer look, the
nearly $500,000 cost above
what the land is currently
valued proved too much for
the Sarasota County commis-
sioners Tuesday.
In a 3-2 vote, the board
rejected the deal to buy the
land from Alice Blackburn for
$2.8 million. Commissioners
David Mills and Paul Mercier
supported the purchase.
The $100,000-per-acre
price has been out there for
many months, but county
appraisals of the property
found a fair cost would be
about $2.3 million, or about
$82,800 per acre, said Lin
Kurant, the county's real
property manager.
"We had to move fast at
the time to secure the prop-
erty because the owner had
a developer interested at that
$100,000-per-acre price," Kur-
ant said.

'Sitting duck'
The site was considered


"Each job, like every customer,
receives personal and
individual attention. "

ideal for a relocation site for a
fire station that will be mo. ed
off U.S. 41 when the West
Villages development is built,
and a link as a park and for
stormwater use. -
The county tentatively ap-
proved the contract but it was
contingent on getting formal
appraisals.
When asked about rene-
gotiating the price to bring it
more inline with the county's
appraisals, Kurant said "the
sellers have refused to reduce
the price."
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson started the wave of
discontent among the board
by saying that she feels like
the county is a "sitting duck" at
an auction because everyone
knows the county is looking
for land. .
Commissioner Shannon
Staub said that as commis-,
sioner she is "not willing to
play this game. The EIC is
years off. The fire station is
not going to be needed any-
time soon. I'm just tired of
it. Just let it go."
Commissioner Jon Thaxton
said he was hesitant to walk
away from the deal if he isn't
sure if the county has a back-
up plan for the stormwater
and fire station placing.
Mercier said he supported
the purchase for the same
reason.
"It serves quite a bit of our
needs and it is overpriced,"
-he said. "It is a case of want
and need and I think it's

worth the effort. The hard fact
is it is not going to get cheap-
er in that area."

Dual objective
County Administrator Jim
Ley said the purchase was ini-
tially approved to save money
in advance of the EIC project.
"This property met a dual
objective," Ley said. "We need
stormwater at some point
and space for a fire station."
Mills said he wasn't going
to take high prices anymore,
but agreed the location is too
good to ignore.
"We are going to pay this
much and more in the future
for land of this size," Mills
said.
Staub said with the market
slowing, paying more than an
appraisal makes no sense at
this time.
She added the county
needs to look at alternatives
areas "so we are not held
hostage."

VHS Medical Academy Director Brenda Randazzese stands beside a plastic replica of a human
body.


DAY
ning was also held Tuesday
for eighth-graders through-
out the area who will be new
to Venice High next year.
The program targets stu-
dents who already have a
good idea about what they
want to be: physician, nurse,
radiology technician, EMT,
physical or occupational
therapy assistant or sports
medic, among others.
"Students seeking entry
into this program need to
have a strong commitment to
their career choice, excellent
motivation and a willingness
to work hard in this rigorous
but rewarding program,"
Randazzese said.


She will interview all can-
didates and their parents, as
well as look at teacher recom-
mendations.
The medical academy
grew from a branch of the Life
Science Academy, one of four
current academies at Venice
High. The others are Arts and
Communication, SEMTA
(Science Engineering, Math
and Technology) and VIBES
(Venice International Busi-
nesses Education and Serv-
ice).
A transitionary academy
for ninth-graders is called
Cornerstone. It's designed to
help youth start thinking
about what vocation they
might wish to pursue, and
which academy would most


interest them, say educators.
Students are not required
to associate themselves with
an academy, but the school
encourages all to participate.
"Ideally, we'd like to see
every student identified with
one of the academies. Are
they all doing it? Not yet. But
they will. The kids are selling
the program. They enjoy it,"
Ruthardt said.

Expedition

Everest

opens at

WDW

More than two years in the
planning and building,
Expedition Everest opened
officially last Thursday, April
7, in the Animal Kingdom at
Walt Disney World.
More than a roller coaster,
Expedition Everest offers a
vacation experience second
to none and without the has-
sle of airports and passports
and 15-hour flights. Instead,
riders board trains for an
adventure they are not likely
soon to forget.
As the car climbs over and
into the snow-capped moun-
tain home of the infamous
Yeti (also known as Big Foot),
the anticipation begins. Will
we see the Yeti? More impor-
tantly will it see us and if it
does, how will we be able to
protect ourselves, strapped
into this open car as we are?
What was that? There is a
shadowy creature ahead. Is it
a lone sherpa? Couldn't be. It
is far too big but it is only a
shadow in the distance so we
cannot be sure. Is our mind
playing tricks on us?
And then it happens. We
stop suddenly, mysteriously
saved from plummeting over
the edge where someone or
something has torn away the
train tracks. Are we trapped?
Will we have to climb down
the mountain?
Before we can even begin
to think of a way out, the deci-
sion has been wrested from
our hands and minds and we
begin plummeting backward
through the dark caverns of
Mount Everest, twisting and
turning, careening downward
at an ever quickening pace
toward whatever will be until,
once again we stop some-
where.
We catch our breath. And
then all of a sudden the train
begins moving again.
Miraculously we are going
forward again but on another
track that takes us higher into
the mountain, hopefully away
from all that has gone before.
We climb higher and higher.
There is a lovely glow within
the mountain's cavernous
inner sanctum and there is
even daylight ahead.

Please see COOL, 10B

FRIDAY

STAFF REPORT

n many ways, Kyle Chmielewski

is a typical 16-year-old affable,

quick to smile and eager to do

interesting things with the amazing

technology at hand in today's com-

puter world.

But it is that eagerness to do inter-

esting things that sets Chmielewski

into a rarefied atmosphere, as in

above terra firma atmosphere.

At the ripe old age of 16,

Chmielewski has completed his first

solo flight and is on the way to

become a licensed pilot.


"It was supposed to take
place on my birthday," he
said of soloing, "but I was
sick and the weather was too
windy.
"I tried to get it scheduled
for that Friday, but the air-
port was too busy. Finally, I
soloed (the next weekend)."
Was it worth the wait?
The quick smile would
have been answer enough.
"It was pretty cool," he
said.

a passion for aviation
when he was in first grade.


SUN STAFF PHOTO


Kyle Chmielewski inspects his plane in a preflight ritual.


Learning to fly
A sophomore among the
450 students at Sarasota
Military Academy charter
school, and carrying a 3.75
point average, Chmielewski is
passionate about aviation, an
interest than began when
accompanying his dad, Gary,
during off hours to the air ser-
vice wing of United Parcel
Service where a friend of the
older Chmielewski was
employed.
"I think it was love at first
sight," his father said of his
son's enthusiasm for aircraft.
That love deepened when
Kyle joined the Young Eagles
at age 12. Sponsored by the
Experimental Aircraft
Association headquartered in
Oshkosh, Wis., the Young
Eagles are 8- to 17-year-olds
who have a developing inter-
est in aviation.
The EAA, with its 40,000
volunteer pilots worldwide,
give Young Eagles that rare
opportunity to have a free 15-
to 30-minute flight in a gener-
al aviation aircraft.
Bookending with the
Young Eagles experience was
a Microsoft Flight Simulator
'95 program which came with
his grandmother's computer.
He immersed himself in that
simulator program, honing


skills and developing a profi-
ciency at a rapid rate, and
interacting with other virtual
simulator program operators
nationwide.
When the rumor of the
charter school was being
floated, Kyle got himself on
the waiting list immediately.
With Civil Air Patrol among its
offerings, a solid, curriculum
and mandated participation
in Reserve Officers Training
Corps, the academy seemed
tailor-made to fit
Chmielewski's desires, which
include possibly applying for
entrance into the United
States Air Force Academy at
Colorado Springs, Colo.
It was only natural that he
would dovetail his activities,
including part-time work at
Dolphin Aviation, around air-
craft and earning his pilot's
license, which he has done
through Cirrus Flight School
located inside Dolphin
Aviation near the Sarasota
Municipal Airport.
Crediting his three flight
instructors, Josh 1 letzel, Dave
Birch aniid present instructor
Dave Jenkins, with strong
roles in his hands-on flight
training education,
ChInielewski Ilas been
involved( in flying six dilfTeenl
types ol aircraft: C(eSsla 152,


Cessna 172, Cessna 182,
Katana, Piper Warrior, and a
gyrocopter, which he thought
was totally superior.


Since soloing he has begun
the complex and demanding
lessons of instrument flying
- advanced techniques of
flying by instrument panel
designations only with no
visual contact with the sur-
rounding terrain or the land-
ing field.
The extensive' hours of
simulator experience, during
which time he has impressed
professional pilots who have
been witness to his ability.at a
skill usually reserved for more
experienced pilots, has been
a cornerstone of this talented
teen's early flight years.
Chmielewski has not been


back in the cockpit to fly
Florida's friendly skies since
taking his first solo flight.
'An hour, which involves a
pre-check of the aircraft, the
instructor, a post-check and
discussion afterwards runs
about $150," Kyle's father
said, a hefty reminder that
some passions make larger
'demands on a family than
others and nourishing that
passion might have to be
done in small steps rather
than large leaps.
Given his drive and deter-
mination and parental sup-
port, it would seem that for
16-year-old -Kyle Chmiel-
ewski, the sky's the limit.


PHOTO COURTESY OF GARY CHMIELEWSKI
Following his successful solo flight, Kyle participated in a time-
honored tradition the tearing of the T-shirt. As history tells
it, in the days of open cockpit planes, the instructor sitting
behind the trainee would grab at the back of the trainee's shirt
or jacket to get attention. Often, when the flight ended, the
trainee's shirt had been torn. Here, he poses with flight instruc-
tor Dave Jenkins.

Kyle Chmielewski has been pursuing his pilot's license since he was in grade school and was
able to fly solo after his 16th birthday.

school. The parcel of land had
been surveyed for tortoise
burrows and appropriate per-
mits were pulled for the relo-
cation.
Approximately 1 acre of
adjacent land was deemed
suitable for the new home of
the endangered species. Stu-
dents were able to shadow the
consultant and learn of the
need to protect the tortoises
through the relocation pro-
cess.
This experience helpedthe
students gain insight into the
need to protect both animal
and plant environments as
development takes place in


the area.
The school looks to clear
the land in anticipation of the
development of its proposed
athletic fields.
The students have also
been learning about the value
of the watershed as an eco-
system as they have worked
on Project Genesis, a grant-
based wetlands study project,
throughout the year.
The school's wetlands have
afforded the opportunity to
research and explore this re-
fuge with its proliferation of
plant and animal species.
Curriculum support has been
provided through Project Wet,
Project Learning Tree, the
Sarasota County Extension
Office and Mosquito Control.
Long-term goals include
the building of a boardwalk
into the wetlands and planti-
ngs of indigenous herbaceous
plant species with the aid of
local neighbors, the Willow
Springs Development and the
school community.

STAFF REPORT

As part of a one-day Farm
to School pilot program being
tested in Sarasota County
Schools, local schoolchildren
will enjoy a Florida-grown'
specialty in their lunchrooms
- Florida-grown green col-
lards, freshly picked and
freshly prepared. The south-
ern specialty, popularly
known as collard greens, will
be served with pork chops in
honor of the district's annual

Elementary school teach-
ers these days must be under
nearly as much stress as air

Well-meaning higher-ups,

Developmentally appro-

When lessons are com-
posed of concepts that are
too abstract for young devel-

Some mistake memorization

a product of understanding.
Approximately between
the ages of 2 and 7, children
are in a developmental stage

To require them to learn
mainly by sitting and doing

Art Center wall fit to be tiled


BY RACHEL ALEXANDER
STAFF WRITER


What do local youngsters
like about their hometown?
Soon, visitors to the Engle-
wood Art Center will be able
to find out by looking at a
wall.
Last week, 11 home-
schooled children could be
found putting up a mural of
clay tiles made by other area
children during the last two
years, said Carroll Swayze,
one of three art instructors
involved in the project.
Nanette Hopkins and
Sally Stroesberg, also chil-
dren's art teachers at the
center, were helping with
the clay tile mural made by
children at Englewood
Elementary School, Heri--
tage Christian Academy,
Vineland Elementary
School, Myakka Elementary
School, Pineview Elemen-
tary School and Taylor
Ranch Elementary School.
"We just wanted to do'
something neat with the
kids," Hopkins said. "The
concept is, 'what they liked
about. Englewood.' Some of
them did see turtles, dol-
phins, manatees, a lot of
underwater scenes."
Swazye's home-schooled
students helped design the
mural.
"What if we did a few up
and a few down and work it
out that way?" Swazye asked.
"If we make it a box, it's go-
ing to be boring."
A bunch of chatter ensu-
ed, each talking over the
other, but Swayze heard

dents.


fectly symmetrical. You're go-
ing to be a lawyer, aren't
you?" she asked Alex Roman,
8, who gave no response.
"Yes, I think he's going to
be a lawyer," she said.
Alex did offer his opinion
on the overall project.
"I really like it," he said. "I


especially like clay."
That sentiment was echo-
ed by other children.
Noah Chavez, 9, and his
sister, Madeline, 11, who just
moved to the area from Ten-
nessee, were enjoying the
building project.
"It's fun," said Madeline.


"We did animals and objects.
Oh, yeah, it's fun."
Art parties
Pat Kukla looked on with
other members of the art
center.
"What a neat idea," Kukla
said. "She (Swazye) is so
clever. And the kids just love
her."
The center is in the pro-
cess of building a new gal-
lery and will expand class-
rooms in. the space currently
housing the gallery.
In the back of the gallery
will be a new children's pot-
tery studio, including two
donated kilns and two do-
nated pottery wheels.
The Englewood Art Center
is also offering a new con-
cept to its student classes
and summer camps: birth-
day art parties.
Parents can reserve a
room, bring their own re-
freshments and have chil-
dren enjoy an art experi-
ence.
"They'll be able to pick
from two categories of art,"
Hopkins said.
Categories include decou-
page, clay, painting, decorat-
ing a T-shirt, decorating a
picture frame and putting a
party Polaroid in it to re-
member the special day,
among other projects.

children's art and other

9,640 days without ever missing a training run


J.J. Andrews
BACK OF THE PACK

Complaining tends to be a
popular pastime in this world.
A study should be commis-
sioned measuring the amount
of lost productivity in the
workplace because people


need to spout off about what
someone else messed up, why
something is not their fault or
how their situation is MUCH
MORE difficult than everyone
else's.
And I'm no different.
While running Monday
morning in overcast and
gloomy conditions, I wanted
to complain about my creaky
knees and my body's aches
and pains to people who've
been running longer than I've
been alive.
"You think your knees are
sore. You ought to feel mine
after running' for an hour-and-
a-half yesterday at the Kmart
plaza."
The others runners and I


turned to "Cowboy Song John"
and asked him what in the
world he was talking about.
He's fun to run with, but the
recently retired late 50-some-
thing does tend to wander off
on conversational tangents
none of us understands.
He also enjoys singing tear-
in-my-beer country songs as
we run around Venice island at
6 a.m.
"Well, the weather was so
bad, I ran under that over-
hang-thing on the sidewalk,
back-and-forth the whole way.
Sunday's my long run and I
had to get it in."
My brain was still trying to
comprehend what Cowboy
Song John was telling me. Why


was it so important to run
Sunday morning? Whenever
it's lightning outside, I just skip
my runs.
And then Cowboy Song
John said something I didn't
know.
"I haven't missed a day of
running since Nov. 17, 1979."
Wow. His run Sunday made
it 9,640 days without missing a
run.
Or put another way, 1,377
weeks and one day, or 26
years, 20 weeks and three
days.
Putting that one other way,
Cowboy Song John last missed
a run when The Fiancee was
only 17 months old.
"It just kind of happened by


accident. Now I'm afraid if I
skip a day, I'll keel over."
We tossed out jokes about
whether that was dedication
or obsession. He laughed, say-
ing his days always seemed to
start better with a run.
That's when I dusted off
that reflective place in the
back of my mind, reserved
only for special occasions like
anniversaries and birthdays.
For more than 26 years,
Cowboy Song John has made a
conscious decision to start his
day off as positively as possi-
ble. Running is Cowboy Song
John's method, but for some-
one else, it could be another
type of exercise or some type
of meditation or spiritual


reading or whatever.
His decision seems to be
working, at least judging by his
positive outlook on life.
I'm not quite ready to run
seven days a week, every
week, for the next three
decades.
But I am willing to work on
that 30-60 minutes a day
reserved for complaining
without ever searching for a
solution.

Back of the Pack is a week-
ly running column appearing
every Wednesday. Send run-
ning-related e-mails to
Assistant Editor JJ. Andrews

Getting back what we give

BY MARY RILEY
READER COLUMN WHAT'S YOUR STORY?


Close to a year ago I brought my long-time-
rolled-up yoga "sticky" mat to the Women's
Resource Center in Venice to take the class,
which I had not been to for about a year. That
transcribes to that I hadn't been practicing
yoga on my own, either. I had been busy train-
ing for marathons and forgot about yoga.
The receptionist said, "There is no yoga
class because we don't have a teacher."
Without thinking, I responded, "I'll teach it."
Soon thereafter I was the yoga instructor.
My first class despite being publicized -
had zero students. I practiced in an empty
room by myself. That was June. My class two
weeks ago had 20 students, filled to capacity.
I find myself drawing on the words of my
first yoga instructor of 30 years ago, Rose
Mishlove, in White Fish Bay, Wis., saying things
like, "If you do this 50 times a day you will
never be constipated." It usually draws a ner-
vous giggle, but not as much as the wind-
releasing pose of which I warn the students.
As a teacher I benefit more than I received

It has improved my running. Truly the best
part of teaching is that my husband, Rick
Rabalias, became inspired to teach at the
Women's Resource Center, also, and to hear
his remarks of how much better he feels and
how aware he is of his posture makes our vol-
unteer teaching simply, divine.

Good "'114
posture
protects you
Against back pain as
well as improves your overall health
and appearance. Conversely, poor
posture promotes back pain and can
affect the position and function of your
abdominal organs, inhibit breathing and oxygen
intake, and cause headaches. The back has three
natural curves: a slight forward curve in the
neck. a slight backward curve in the upper back,
and a slight forward curve in the low back.
When these curves are in proper alignment, the
spine, shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles are in
balance, and body weight is evenly distributed.
The payoff is less stress and strain on muscles,
joints, and ligaments, as well as reduced risk for
back, neck, and shoulder pain.
Bad posture is a lifetime scenario for most people.
Why wait until you're hurting to learn about your
treatment options? When you're hurting you may not
give this important decision the time and attention it
needs to make the best choice.
At TWIN PALMS, CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH CENTER,
we're currently accepting new patients and welcome
your call at 941-412-3800 to schedule an
appointment for a comprehensive chiropractic
Evaluation. We're located at 1214-C Venice Ave.
East. where we will spend time talking with you to
evaluate the source of your health problem and
determine the most effective form of treatment.
We offer massage 1,. ip and have 4 licensed
massage therapists on staff.
P.S. Some of the classic signs of poor posture
are a potbelly, rounded shoulders, and a jutted-out
neck and chin (known as forward head position).

ANSWERS TO WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ


Q 1 As South, vulnerable, you
hold:
48 95 oJ4 ,KQ1087542
Partner opens the bidding with one no
trump. What do you respond?
A Any time partner has the ace, or
even three low cards, in the suit, you
want to be in three no trump. There
are ways to find out about the ace,
but not about three low cards, so we
would just shoot out three no trump.
Five of the minor would be a good
contract if partner's no trump is rich
in aces and kings.
Q 2 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:
42 z K1098 oQJ873 4.J92


. 6 *


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
14 3 Pass
Dbl Pass ?
What action do you take?


WEST
44


A North almost certainly has four
hearts, so we slightly prefer bidding
five hearts to five diamonds.
However, we think the most flexible
action is to bid four no trump, asking
partner to choose between the red
suits. If partner reads the bid as
Blackwood, we would choose anoth-
er partner!
Q 3 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
* K7 A 1082 oKQ83 4 A J 7
The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
1NT Pass 2NT 34
9
What action do you take?
A Don't even think of bidding
game. East has taken a rash action
and most of the time will be forced
to lead from his hand away from
strength into your side's combined
holding. It should be a bloodbath.
Double.
Q 4 As South, vulnerable, you
hold:


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
14 Dbl 24.
9
What do you bid now?


EAST
Pass


A Partner probably doesn't have
much in the way of high cards, but
he does have a fairly good six-card
or longer suit. That gives us a choice
of jumping to four or five clubs.
With the rich game bonus available
at this vulnerability, we opt for the
aggressive jump to game in clubs.
Q 5 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
AAQJ10 < Void QAQ105 4AQJ76
Your. left-hand opponent's opening
bid of four hearts is passed round to
you. What action do you take?
A We don't want to defend four
hearts doubled with this hand, and if
we make a takeout double of four
hearts partner might convert. That
leaves us with just one action a
cue-bid of five hearts. Partner should
know that we don't need much for
slam.
Q 6 Vulnerable, you hold:
A Q 9 8 4 86. o 954 Q93
Partner opens the bidding with one no
trump (15-17). What do you respond?
A You want to invite game in
spades or no trump, depending on
partner's holding. Start by bidding
two clubs, the Stayman convention,
and then bid two spades over part-
ner's response, or raise spades
should you hit partner's four-card
major. That shows a hand with 8-9
points and five spades. If you play
transfer bids, transfer with two hearts
and follow up with two no trump.

Is this boring


... or fascinating?


DAVE BARRY


EDITOR'S NOTE: This classic
Dave Barry column was originally
published Nov. 20, 1994.

I was at an airport, reading
a newspaper, when the
World's Three Most Boring
People sat down next to me
and started talking as loud as
they could without ampli-
fiers. They were so boring I
took notes on their conversa-
tion. Here's an actual excerpt:
FIRST PERSON (pointing
to a big bag): That's a big bag.
SECOND PERSON: That IS
a big bag.
FIRST PERSON: You can
hold a lot in a bag like that.
THIRD PERSON: Francine
has a big bag like that.
FIRST PERSON: Francine
does? Like that?
THIRD PERSON: Yes. It
holds everything. She puts
everything in that bag.
SECOND PERSON: It's a
big bag.
THIRD PERSON: She says
whatever she has, she just
puts it in that bag and just,
boom, closes it up.
FIRST PERSON: Francine
does?
SECOND PERSON: That is
a BIG bag.
I want to stress that this
was not all that they had to
say about the big bag. They
could have gone on for hours


if they hadn't been interrupt-
ed by a major news develop-
ment; namely, a person walk-
ing past pulling a wheeled
suitcase. This inspired a
whole new train of thought:
("There's one of those suitcas-
es with those wheels."
"Where?" "There, with those
wheels." "John has one." "He
does?" "With those wheels?"
"Yes. He says you just roll it
along." "John does?")
And so on. It occurred to
me that a possible explana-
tion for some plane crashes
might be that people like
these were sitting close
enough to the cockpit for the
flight crew to hear them talk
("There's a cloud." "Look,
there's another ...") and even-
tually the pilot deliberately
flies into the ground to make
them shut up.
The thing is, these people
clearly didn't know they were
boring. Boring people never
do. In fact, no offense, even
YOU could be boring. Ask
yourself: When you talk to
people, do they tend to make
vague excuses "Sorry! Got
to run!" and then walk
briskly away? Does this hap-
pen even if you are in an ele-
vator?
But even if people listen to
you with what appears to be
great interest, that doesn't
mean you're not boring. They
could be pretending. When
Prince Charles speaks, every-
body pretends to be fascinat-
ed, even though he has never
said anything interesting
except in that intercepted
telephone conversation
wherein he expressed the
desire to be a feminine
hygiene product.
And even if you're not
Prince Charles, people might
have to pretend you're inter-


testing because they want to
sell you something or have
intimate carnal knowledge of
you or because you hold
some power over them.
At one time, I was a co-
investor in a small, aging
apartment building with
plumbing and electrical sys-
tems that were brought over
on the Mayflower; my partner
and I were regularly visited by
the building inspector, who
had the power to write us up
for numerous minor build-
ing-code infractions, which is
why we always pretended to
be fascinated when he told us
- as he ALWAYS did about
the time he re-plumbed his
house. His account of this
event was as long as "The
Iliad" but with more solder-
ing. I'm sure he told this story
to everybody whose building
he ever inspected; he's proba-
bly still telling it, unless some
building owner finally stran-
gled him, in which case I bet
his wife never reported that
he was missing.
The point is, you could
easily be unaware that you're
boring. This is why everybody
should make a conscious
effort to avoid boring topics.
The problem here, of course,
is that not everybody agrees
on what "boring" means. For
example, Person A might
believe that collecting deco-
rative plates is boring, where-
as Person B might find this to
be a fascinating hobby. Who's
to say which person is cor-
rect?
I am. Person A is correct.
Plate-collecting is boring. In
fact, hobbies of any kind are
boring except to people who
have the same hobby. (This is
also true of religion, although
you will not find me saying so
in print.)


The New Age is boring, and
so are those puzzles where
you try to locate all the hid-
den words. Agriculture is
important, but boring.
Likewise foreign policy.
Also, come to think of it,
domestic policy. The fact that
your child made the honor
roll is boring. Auto racing is
boring' except when a car is
going at least 172 mph upside
down.
Talking about golf is always
boring. (PLAYING golf can be
interesting, but not the part
where you try to hit the little
ball; only the part where you
drive the cart.) Fishing is bor-
ing, unless you catch an actu-
al fish, and then it is disgust-
ing.
Speaking of sports, a big
problem is that men and
women often do not agree on
what is boring. Men can
devote an entire working
week to discussing a single
pass-interference penalty;
women find this boring, yet
can be fascinated by a four-
hour movie with subtitles
wherein the entire plot con-
sists of a man and a woman
yearning to have, but never
actually having, a relation-
ship. Men HATE that.
Men can take maybe 45
seconds of yearning, and
then they want everybody to
get naked. Followed by a car
chase. A movie called "Naked
People in Car Chases" would
do really well among men.
I have quite a few more
points to make, but I'm sick of
this topic.

Dave Barny is taking a
leave of absence from writing
his weekly humor column.
His classic columns appear in
the Wednesday edition of the
Venice Gondolier Sun.

What was that?
That is no shadow.
As we near the top of the
hill, a giant beast suddenly
looms oxel ourl heads threat-
ening to grab ts and possibly
e\ en to pull tus from the train.
Shaped like a man but cov-
ered in fur like a giant ape, it
reaches its long hairy arms in
our direction just as the train
reaches the top of the hill and
plummets over the crest.
When the' train finally
came to a stop and we were
safely back at the bottom of
the mountain, there was only
one thing to do ride it
again!
And we did.
Prepare to stand in line for
this one but not to worry.
Those Disney folks even
make the line thing as pleas-
ant as possible by offering a
museum-like collection of
artifacts related to the
Expedition Everest experi-
ence. There is even a casting
of a giant footprint that is said
to have been found in the
Everest region of the
Himalayas.
This is not a ride for the lit-
tlest Mousketeers but then I
could write another book on


the perfect age for the first
trip to WDW.
Opening next week is the
annual Epcot Flower &
Garden Festival, yet another
reason to visit WDW. There
will be more on that in next

REIFERT fom Page 6


nature is a "knowing creature,
motivated to acquire knowl-
edge." He warns against
dulling a child's "eagerness to
know by providing an overly
rigid curricula that disrupts
the child's own rhythm and
pace of learning."
The pressure to teach
more concepts earlier, and to
skip important steps along
the way, must keep good
teachers up nights worrying
about the quality of teaching
they are having to sacrifice
in order to cover the ever-
expanding curriculum.
Young children and their
parents are often kept up
nights doing homework


assignments motivated by
the school's need to cover
more material than they
can get done in the school
day.
Some private schools are
deemed superior based on
their requiring students to do
more work faster, giving the
illusion that their students are
"ahead" of public school stu-
dents. This is a popular, but
false measure of what makes
a good school. Quality of
learning is compromised by
this false assessment.
When teachers are judged
by how far they have gotten in
the workbook or reading text-
books by the end ot the


school year, and when chil-
dren are not given the time
they need to learn one skill
well before going on the next,
quality of learning suffers. In
addition, when there is so
much to cover, there is little
time to develop creativity and
socialization skills.
Research suggests that
early schooling proceeds
mainly on the basis of nega-
tive feedback. Could much
of this negative feedback
be due to a curriculum that
is too advanced or demand-
ing for its young students? -
Studies have shown that
children's self-esteem in the
latter part of elementary


school is lower than it is in
the earlier part. Is it any
wonder, when even first
grade children receive "D"s
and "F"s on papers and
report cards?
Many 6-year-olds bring
home worksheets with big
red check marks and 'sad
faces indicating that they
didn't understand, or weren't
able to respond in writing
to show that the understood
their lessons. Perhaps this
misunderstanding is a result
of their being asked to do
something for which they are
not prepared or developmen-
tally equipped.
It is important to remem-


ber that we do not all mature
at the same rate, physically
or cognitively. There is no
magic age at which all chil-
dren are ready to move from
the concrete to the abstract
when learning.
Because of this, it is im-
portant for teachers and par-
ents to include plenty of real
examples, and use objects
that children can manipulate
to instill new concepts.
Awareness of children's
developmental readiness is
crucial to setting the foun-
dation for quality education.
Expecting children to learn
too much too soon can
have negative educational


and psychological conse-
quences.

St. Mark's Thrift Shop could
be known as the Filene's of
Venice. This bargain store is
one of my must stop shops.
The Episcopal Church Women
recently had a fashion show at
St. Mark's Gray Hall that drew
a group of shop 'til you drop
women who had a ball.
Models Jennifer Boyd, Rae-
Methl e, RitaYarringon, April.
Merrill, Diane Keren, Helen
Sherkinus, Joyce Havell and
Deb Kneen wowed the audi-
ence in the under $20 ensem-
bles. People bought things on
the spot. Irene Piggott, Erica
Crawford and Sam Corns
made sure the show went off
without a hitch.
St. Mark's Thrift Shop is
located on Miami Avenue
Volunteers told me customers
are often waiting in line when
the store opens at 9 a.m. Be
sure to check it out.
Meeting the challenge
About 650 women gathered
at the Ritz Carlton for the
Renaissance Luncheon Fash-
ion Show to benefit the Wo-
men's Resource Center. The
event highlighted the Chal-
lenge Program, which helps
women restructure their lives
as they navigate the twists and
turns.
Venice resident Sharon
Monk is the vice president of
the organization. The Wo-
men's Resource Center pro-
vides programs like weight
loss, financial planning and
setting up your business. It is
designed as a resource for
women at all stages of their
lives. About 11,000 participate
each year.
The entertainment at the
luncheon included Pine View
student pianist, Vera Higgs.
Standing on the sidelines
proudly watching his daugh-
ter' perform was Venice Little
Theatre director, Dan Higgs.
Contact the Women's
Resource Center at 485-9724.
Hop right over
This Saturday there will be
an Easter egg hunt at the gaze-
bo in Centennial Park begin-
ning at 9 a.m.
The Arts and Cultural Al-
liance takes over the Venice
Little Theatre for a spectacular
day celebrating the arts. See
Sister Maureen Byrne helping
kids make kites, and artists
performing and selling their
work. The event runs 10 a.m.-
4. p.m. Look for the tents.

The Eastern European food
blessing tradition brings peo-
ple together at Epiphany
Cathedral the Saturday before
Easter at noon.
Start the tradition in your
family, whatever your her-
itage. Fill a basket with a place
mat and food you and your
family will eat on Easter
Sunday and bring it to church.
The baskets are placed on the
alter for the blessing.
My granddaughters each
enjoy decorating their own lit-
tle basket.
