NIMBY leads to backing of 681 plan


State's concept plan to access the Venice
Connector draws support from residents afraid
their new neighbors will seek shortcuts through
their own back yard.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Progress is inevitable. That
seemed to be the thread that
linked most people who at-
tended the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation hear-


ing on the Venice Connector
access plan.
The public hearing took
place Tuesday evening at the
Nokomis Community Center
as department officials pre-
sented a conceptual access
management plan for State


Road 681, which has been
named the Venice Connector,
from U.S. 41 to Interstate 75
in Sarasota County.
With few exceptions, resi-
dents overwhelmingly sup-
ported the project for a vari-
ety of reasons that include the
policy idea of"infill" develop-
ment instead of leapfrogging
over 1-75 to expand eastward,
using an underutilized high-
way instead of building new
roads and its already existing
environmental footprint.


The plan, authorized by
the Board of County Com-
missioners in December, pro-
poses three full median open-
ings and six right-turn-only
driveway connections ap-
proximately every quarter of a
mile along the 4.5 mile long
S.R. 681. The medians could
eventually have light signals if
and when traffic volume war-
rants it.
No money exists for design

Good morning, Gondolier
Sun subscriber,
R. DEMING


Since January a panel of
residents has met twice
monthly to gather input on
potential major changes to
the Venice City Charter.
So far, they've heard from
just about every constituency
- city manager, finance di-
rector, council members, po-
lice and fire chiefs, city attor-
ney except the most im-
portant one: local residents.
Despite newspaper articles
and other publicity, audience
chairs have remained largely
empty, except for city staff
required to attend. There was
no one present at the April 6
meeting, which happened to
be going on at the same time
as the joint city council-coun-
ty commission meeting down
the street.
CRC has the task of advis-
ing city council on four pro-
posed amendments. Three of
them would give the city
manager more power, while
the fourth idea would elimi-
nate term limits for council
members who want to run for
mayor and vice versa. (See
box.)
Any proposed charter

changes would go out for
public vote this November.
CRC chair Greg Roberts
could only guess as to why
people are not showing up.
"From my viewpoint, I
don't know if it's not a burning
issue for the people, or they
don't know it's going on,"
Roberts said. "We'd like to
have public input and know
what they think, but they're
just not coming."
The next public meeting is
at 1:30 p.m. Thursday in
council chambers of city hall.
One side
Roberts issued a call for
residents to attend Thursday's
meeting and make their opin-
ions heard, especially if
they're against granting the
city manager the power to
hire and fire Venice's police
and fire chiefs and finance
director. Current charter rules
require city council approval
of all hiring and firing of
chiefs, while the finance
director is a charter officer
with power equal to and inde-
pendent of the city manager.
Due to the lack of public
participation, nearly all of the

ATA GLANCE
The Charter Review
Committee is considering four
major revisions to the city
charter, which is basically
Venice's constitution:
* Make the finance director an
employee in the city manag-
er's office instead of a charter
officer.
* Give the city manager the
power to hire and fire the
police and fire chiefs without
council approval.
* Allow the city manger to
conduct internal manage-
ment audits without council
approval.
* Let a council member who
has been elected to the three-
term maximum run for mayor
without having to sit out a
year, or vice versa.
The next public meeting is at
1:30 p.m. April 21 in council
chambers at city hall. Public
input is asked for at every
meeting, as any changes
would have to go to a vote in
November.
CRC members plan to make a
recommendation to Venice
City Council in June. Residents
would vote on the proposals
in November, but as of now,
hardly any residents have
attended the meetings to pro-
vide input.

What was once a dirt trail
heading north to the county
landfill will eventually be a
major north-south road with
four lanes connecting to Clark
Road.
At least, that's what city
planners and developers say
is the future for Knights Trail
Road.
North Venice again was the
center of discussion Tuesday
at the Venice Planning Com-
mission meeting. J&J Homes
got the commission's recom-
mendation for the rezoning of
its 407 acres, formerly known
as Stay 'N Play resort park on
Knights Trail Road, to create a
multi-use miniature city with
nearly 2,000 new homes.
The request now heads to
city council for final approval.
Early estimates have
Knights Trail needing to be
four lanes and Laurel Road six
lanes once Bella Venetia, the
name of J&J Homes' develop-
ment, reaches maximum
build-out.
"It's 2006 and no one can
still answer how wide the
road needs to be," planning
commission chair John Os-
mulski said.
City Attorney Bob Ander-
son brought up even a more
important question: Who will
pay for it?
Whose impact fees?
Planning and Zoning
Director Tom Slaughter said
city staff will meet May 3 with
county planners and property
owners to determine land
needs for the Knights Trail
widening. Because most of
the land has yet to be devel-
oped, the city believes it can
require developers to donate
the land in order to have their
projects approved.
Knights Trail is a county
road, meaning Sarasota
County will be the one to
build it. The city attorney was
questioning the fact that no
special provisions are show-
ing up in the agreements.
Developers along Laurel
Road, for example, had to
donate the land and pay for
the road to be built, on top of
normal impact fees.
Slaughter said Sarasota
County's normal transporta-
tion impact fees will fund
widening of Knights Trail
Road, much like it's paying for
the intersection and traffic
signal improvements at
Laurel and Knights Trail

roads.
This drew a look of frustra-
tion from several on the plan-
ning commission. Venice has
been requesting a traffic sig-
nal at the Knights Trail-Laurel
intersection for more than
five years. It's predicted to be
finished late next year, at the
earliest.
Rick Tacy, city council liai-
son to plan-
ning commis-
sion, said
Venice can-
not count on
Sarasota .
County to
properly allo-
cate impact
fees for roads m
within city Tacy
limits. He was
referring to how Venice
impact fees are being spent
on projects outside city limits
to subsidize county-approved
developments.
"I've figured out what the
problem is with impact fees,"
Tacy said. "They want to
accommodate the growth
they've incurred, like Jaca-
randa and U.S. 41 (in South
Venice). They don't care about
the city practicing solid
growth."
Miniature city
All of the transportation
talk didn't seem to slow down
attorney Jeff Boone, who
called his client's develop-
ment the "next piece in the
puzzle" to creating North
Venice.
Bella Venetia is just one of
the many developments ex-
pected to bring as many as
9,000 new homes, several
retail centers and an IMAX
movie theater east of Inter-
state 75 along Laurel and
Knights Trail roads.
The Bella Venetia site is
proposed to have have 1,919
residential units, 120 hotel
rooms, 120 condo-hotel units
and 113,000
square feet of .
retail space,

J&J Homes -

cial taxing

for roads and

County beach

purchase plan 'indecent'

From the April 7, 1975, Venice Gondolier Sun


STAFF REPORT

Sarasota County Attorney
Richard (Dick) Nelson has
been criticized for "indecent
haste" in his efforts to obtain
Caspersen Beach for the
county.
Finn W. Caspersen, a
spokesman for the family
owning the family south,
complained that Nelson had
waited 22 months to act on
the purchase and then gave
the family only 10 days to
respond.
Cg- rsen said efforts by
the newspapers to'bring out
the facts on Caspersen Beach
have resulted in piece-meal


revelations which, while well
intended, have caused some
confusion about the prob-
lem.
In an effort to unravel the
knot of facts Caspersen
made a number of public
statements.
"The Caspersen family
has at no time offered to sell
the county anything what-
soever," he said.
'After reading for over two
years about the county's in-
tent to acquire the property
in question, I finally arranged
to appear oin the agenda of
the'March 11, 1975, meeting
of the'county commissioners.

that the Caspersen family was
not trying to sell anything
to anyone and that if the
county wanted to buy some-
thing from the Caspersens
we were entitled to know
what they wanted to buy
and what they were willing
to pay for it.
"Our knowledge of the
county's intentions came
from what we read in the
newspapers," Caspersen re-
vealed.
"From the time the voters
approved a bond issue May
1, 1973, including funds for
the purchase of the water-
front at Caspersen Beach,
until the commission meet-
ing on March 11 (1975) re-
ferred to above, the county


attorney who had been de-
signated to negotiate the
acquisition of the property
made no effort to contact
either myself or the trustees,
who would have to approve
any final arrangement," Cas-
persen added.
"The contents of the let-
ter handed me by Mr. Nel-
son about five minutes prior
to my scheduled appearance
before the county commis-
sioners was relayed to the,
trustees by me. ... This letter
did not, in fact, invite any
discussion or negotiation,
but rather was in the nature
"of an idlimaitun hinder threat
of condemnation within a
period of 7 to 10 days.

South County to benefit from


school budget 'realignment'


American Legion No-Vel 159

celebrates 60th anniversary


An estimated 200 school jobs may be transferred
from North County to South County schools,
but Norris promises 'no one will be laid off.'


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

The good news is, boosted
by passage of the supple-
mental 1 mill tax, Sarasota
County School District 2006-
07 budget is expected to
increase 4.8 percent over last
year.
The district is guesstimat-
ing 488 new students next
year, for a total enrollment of
42,107. The operating budget
is expected to grow from $376
million to $394 million.
Referendum dollars will
bring in $52 million.
Much of the increase will
go toward school employee
salary increases.
The bad news is the down-
turn in enrollment at some
North County schools and
slower growth at other schools
means nearly 200 employees
(4 percent) both teachers
and support staff will be
reassigned to schools with
growing enrollments. That
means some North County
teachers from schools like
Booker Middle, where enroll-
ment has been dropping for
the past few years, will likely
be involuntarily transferred
to schools that have grown
rapidly in recent years, like
North Port area schools.
With gas prices nearing $3
per gallon and sizeable com-
mutes, morale could become
an issue.
The district estimated
1,500 new students would
show this year, but only 461
materialized. They chalked it
up to skyrocketing housing
prices that make it hard for
.f es.to afford ;to live in
Sarasota County. .


Overstaffed
"Because of the significant
and abrupt slowdown in
enrollment growth we cur-
rently have a number of
schools that have more staff
than needed," said Super-
intendent Gary Norris.
Norris couldn't say exactly
how many employees from
which schools will be reas-
signed. Site-based manage-
ment teams have yet to ana-
lyze the budget to determine
the exact impact on individ-
ual schools.
He declined to character-
ize the "realignment" as bud-
get cuts for some schools,
but one thing is clear: schools
with dropping enrollment
will lose staff and dollars.
The state funding formula is
designed to work that way.
"I want to emphasize this
is not a budget cut. It is a
budget adjustment or shift,"
he said.
Even though not as many
students showed up at the
school door, staff had already
been hired and contracts
signed. They couldn't be re-
leased until the school year's
end. That led to the over-
staffing. For example, the
K-third-grade target class
size at schools is 18 students
per teacher. Average class
sizes ranged from a low of
13 students per teachers to
22.5.
"It's too big a range for
the education of our chil-
dren," Norris said. "Class size
reduction was never intend-
ed to go (down) to 13."
He said the school board
and administration made a
conscientious decision a year
ago not to put more money


into lowering class sizes.
Instead, they opted to add 30
minutes to the school day in
order to get the biggest bang
for its buck in an effort to
boost student achievement.
... but no layoffs
Two weeks ago the district
announced a temporary hir-
ing suspension brought on by
lower-than-expected enroll-
ment. Over projections mean
the district will have to repay
nearly $6 million before
school's out this year. That
sent a scare through employ-
ee ranks.
But Norris said normal
job turnover, like retirements,
resignations, and transfers
within the 5,000 workforce,
should "be enough to achieve
realignment without layoffs.
"Through normal attrition
... we are confident that
there will be ample positions
for all of our teaching staff,"
he said. "While classified staff
may pose a more challeng-
ing situation, we believe we
should be able to accommo-
date all of our classified staff
through transfers into other
departments and other job
classifications that they are
entitled to hold."
Norris sent school employ-
ees a ConnectEd phone mes-
sage prior to unveiling the
budget, assuring them no-
body will lose their job over
realignments.
"With the passage of the 1
mill tax, we are increasing
our overall budget 4.8 per-
cent. However, we will have
to shift some dollars and
align our spending with
priorities. Since our enroll-
ment was lower than project-
ed, we currently have some
classrooms with too few stu-
dents," Norris said.

American Legion members stand at attention at the war memorial near Venice Beach
Saturday. Sixty years ago 15 young men from the Greater Venice area who served in
World War II returned to establish American Legion No-Vel Post 159. They named it after
the first letter of each community: Nokomis-Osprey Venice-Englewood-Laurel (No-Vel).
Today, No-Vel 159 is one of the largest posts in the United States, with 2,500 members
and 1,000 auxiliary members.


be laid off."
Transfers not new
Involuntary transfers are
nothing new to school dis-
tricts. Sarasota County typ-
ically "surpluses" about 100
employees each year -
roughly half teachers and
half support staff, according
to Scott Lempe, director of
human resources. Surplused
staff are those involuntarily
transferred.
Hundreds more voluntar-
ily take new positions within
the district annually. Each


summer dozens of teachers
opt for positions that have
opened up at other schools.
Bid meetings are held
three times yearly for cus-
todians, bus drivers and food
service workers. Those with
the most seniority bid on
newly available positions,
which has a ripple effect
down through the ranks.
"The difference this year,"
said Lempe, "is what's driving
the change."

Detert's campaign manager accused of taking $94,000


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


State Rep. Nancy Detert's
run for Congress hit a speed
bump Monday when she
announced her campaign
treasurer had fled to South
America Ihst week with cam-
paign funds.
The money has been re-
stored to the campaign, and
the man believed to be re-
sponsible has returned to the
United States, is under lock
and key and is facing charges,
she said.
"I am saddened and disap-
pointed at the unexplained


actions of someone whom I
considered a valuable em-
ployee and trusted friend,"
Detert said.
Randy Maddox is back in
the United States after going
to Buenos Aires, Argentina,
with $94,000 in contributions
he allegedly had taken from
the campaign's account.
He worked with Detert in
her mortgage company for
two years before joining her
campaign, Detert said in an
announcement Monday.
A week ago, she said, she
was stunned and saddened to
learn that Maddox was
reported missing by his fami-


ly. That same -,
day she found
he had made
an unautho-
rized money
transfer to his
bank.
After dis- 4
covering the
money miss- Detert
ing, Detert
said, she contacted the FBI
and notified the Federal
Elections Commission. She
also replaced her treasurer.
Detert said she worked
with Maddox's family to en-
courage him to return to the
country and make full restitu-


tion.
All of the money has been
restored to the campaign, she
said.
While Detert said Maddox
was in the "U.S. in a locked
facility," she did not say what
charges he faced or where he
was being held.
The Venice Republican
said that in today's world of
the Internet and faceless
financial transactions, it is
harder than ever to protect
assets.
She said she has sponsored
legislation to protect people
and their money, but "eventu-
ally we all have to trust some-


one and it is always sad when
someone betrays that trust."
She admitted it was difficult
to be in Tallahassee during the
legislative session while also
running for Congress.
"My problem-solving skills
were sorely tested this week,
but everything is on track
with the campaign, and Mr.
Maddox is here to account for
his actions," she said.
She also said she did not
need to report the campaign
problems until the next
round of financial reporting,
but she wanted to alert every-
one to the problem and its
solution as soon as it hap-


opened.
Detert announced her
intention to run for the U.S.
House District 13 seat in June
2005. The seat is being vacat-
ed by Congresswoman Kath-
erine Harris, a Republican,
who is running for the U.S.
Senate against Sen. Bill Nel-
son.
Three other Republicans
- Vern Buchanan, Tramm
Hudson and Joe McClash -
and three Democrats Mike
LaFavers, Jan Schneider and
Christine Jennings are also
running for the seat.

County shuffles top jobs


Ready to Relay


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

The planned retirement of
the head of the library system
in Sarasota County has creat-
ed a ripple effect of job shuf-
fling that fits into the county's
long-term plans.
County Administrator Jim
Ley recently made the an-
nouncement that with the
impending retirement of Li-
brary Services Director Nancy
Pike, Shirley Amore, executive
director of community ser-
vices, has decided to return to
her roots in the library system.
Pike is retiring in May, and
Amore has been interested in
"going back into her chosen
field," Ley said.
Amore will take the posi-
tion of general manager over-
seeing libraries, the History
Center, the University of Flor-
ida Extension Service and
Sustainable Sarasota.
Ley said her library experi-
ence and her passion for edu-
cation will be valuable assets.
With that shift, Ley. ap-


pointed David Harrawood,
the executive director of
emergency services, as inter-
im executive director of com-
munity services.
As long as Harrawood has
been with the county, Ley

said, he has been interested
in expanding his interests and
not staying in one job for too
long.
"There is a lot of attention
going into this department,
and his move is part of our
long-term thinking," Ley said.
Harrawood has served as
executive director of emer-
gency services since February
2000. Under his direction,
emergency services has be-
come fiscally stable, has fund-
ed new fire stations and has
increased staffing.
While serving as interim
executive director of commu-
nity services, he will continue
his involvement in disaster
preparedness.
With Harrawood's move to
community services, Ley ap-
pointed Assistant Fire Chief
Mike Suarez as interim execu-


tive director of emergency
services.
Suarez has been with the
fire service since 1982, and
with Sarasota County since
the city of Sarasota and the
county fire services consoli-
dated in 1996.
In his role as assistant
chief, he has focused on
diversity and succeeded in
attracting more minorities
and women to emergency
services.
All of moves are effective
immediately.
Each of the changes allows
for a smooth transition with
no one leaving the county
completely.
"Everybody knows every-
body," Ley said. "(Harrawood)
has worked closely with com-
munity service on planning,
and (Suarez) is very familiar
with all aspects of emergency
services."
The appointments are
subject to the formal approval
of the county commissioners.

Developer says county stalling on fairgrounds offer


Christopher C. Cogan has offered $41 million and
about 300 acres for the fairgrounds. There have
been no public discussions about the offer by
either city or county officials.


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

A prominent Sarasota de-
veloper who wants to swap
$41 million in cash plus about
300 acres of vacant land near
1-75 for a collection of
Fruitville Road parcels that
includes the Sarasota Fair-
grounds, is adamant that
Sarasota County evaluate his
offer.
Christopher C. Cogan told
the Pelican Press that County
Administrator
Jim Ley may
be holding up
consideration
to pursue a
separate set of ..
plans for the
fair property
that he re- .
cently devised
with Sarasota Ley
City Manager
Mike McNees.
"I'll guarantee you the
county commission thinks
Jim Ley is investigating my
proposal," Cogan said, "while
he is telling me other things
so I will go away. He's telling
me my plans are too ambi-
tious. I have worked on this
project for 18 months."
Ley said Cogan is naive
about public process.
"His offer is to provide
money and land for the fair-
grounds," Ley said. "It would
be more appropriate for him
to approach the fair associa-
tion, and if the fair associa-
tion wants to, it could then
approach the county com-
mission."
According to Ley, there is a
major flaw in Cogan's offer
that conflicts with the coun-


ty's long-range plans for new
communities east of 1-75. The
parcel of land he has offered
to swap with cash for the fair-
grounds is reportedly desig-
nated for future development
as a village.
"No development can take
place out there until an 1-75
interchange is constructed,"
Ley said, "and his proposal
does not address an inter-
change. I'm not sure why the
county commission would
want to chop up a village for
this project. Only the com-
mission can address this."
The carrots
Ley and McNees recently
devised a North County Rec-
reation Facility Enhance-
ments plan that could in-
clude a new spring training
facility for the Cincinnati
Reds at the fairgrounds site, if
the Florida Legislature and
Gov. Jeb Bush approve a $15
million grant.
Their plan was reviewed
with city and county commis-
sioners in one-on-one meet-
ings and presented to a leg-
islative committee in Talla-
hassee before it was publicly
discussed in Sarasota. It has
an estimated price tag of $150
million to $170 million and
includes affordable housing
provisions.
On March 24, Cogan at-
tended a joint city-county
commission meeting in an-
ticipation of a discussion
about his offer.
"Not one word was said
because none of them knew
anything," he said. "Jim Ley
did not bring it up because he
spent time talking about a
new ballpark on Fruitville


Road."
Prior to the meeting, Co-
gan submitted a revised ver-
sion of his initial offer to city,
county and fair officials that
provided more details. The
updated offer featured addi-
tional land for sports facilities
and workforce housing near
1-75.
It includes:
To the Fair Association -
in exchange for 65 acres of fair
property on Fruitville Road,
$32.5 million in cash plus 75
acres near 1-75 and the pro-
posed Central Sarasota Park-
way Extension for a new fair-
grounds, plus 25 acres to the
community for a multi-use
center.
To Sarasota County in
exchange for 22 acres of
county-owned property near
Fruitville Road currently
occupied by Babe Ruth Park,
$5.5 million in cash plus 25
additional acres near 1-75 and
the proposed extension road
for replacement ballfields.
To Sarasota County in
exchange for 5 acres of coun-
ty-owned property near
Fruitville Road currently used
as a Florida Driver License
Bureau, $1.5 million in cash
plus 5 additional acres near I-
75 and the proposed exten-
sion road.
To Sarasota County In
exchange for 3 acres of coun-
ty-owned property near
Fruitville Road and Tuttle
Avenue currently used by the
National Guard Armory, $1.5
million in cash plus 5 addi-
tional acres near 1-75 and the
proposed extension road.
To the city of Sarasota a
donation of 80 additional
acres for the new Cincinnati
Reds spring training complex
and baseball stadium near I-
75 and the proposed exten-
sion road.
To the Community
Housing Trust of Sarasota a
donation of 100 acres for


workforce-priced housing
near 1-75 and the proposed
extension road, where Cogan
Development would reserve
the right to develop housing
under the program's guide-
lines.
To the city of Sarasota a
donation of 10 acres at the
Fruitville Road location for a
possible new police station,
plus structured parking facili-
ties and the base for a city-
operated passenger shuttle
system constructed by Cogan
Development.
A designation of 5 to 8
acres at the Fruitville Road
location for park and green
space, plus 25 percent of the
remaining net undeveloped
land (probably in the former
Babe Ruth Park area) for
workforce-priced housing,
with Cogan Development
reserving the right to build it.
'Arbitrary dates'
Cogan wants to develop
shops, offices, housing and
possibly a hotel and confer-
ence center on the 95-acre
patchwork assembly of


Fruitville Road parcels that
includes the fairgrounds, but
it would take cooperation
from city, county and fair offi-
cials.
Some of the parcels are
owned by the Agricultural
and Fair Association, while
others have deed reversion
clauses that would return
ownership to Sarasota Coun-
ty if the fair is moved to
another location. Fruitville
Road rezonings for new de-
velopment would involve the
city.
Cogan Development is
based in Maitland, Fla., but
Cogan works out of Sarasota.
He recently assembled 25
acres at the northwest corner
of U.S. 41 and Stickney Point
Road for Benderson Develop-
ment, which will build stores
and condominium apart-
ments..
"I submitted my initial
offer for the fairgrounds on
Jan. 14, which will be three
months tomorrow," Cogan
said. "I've had discussions
with fair officials, but have yet
to receive a single inquiry


from anybody at the city or
county. They need to get off
their butts."
Ley reiterated that Cogan
does not understand public
process.
"If the county wanted to
pursue this type of a project,"
he said, "it would go out and
do a solicitation as part of an
orderly and transparent
process. He can set arbitrary
dates, but I don't respond to
those things."
. Cogan is not the only play-
er engaged in fairgrounds
relocation discussions who
has expressed recent displea-
sure with the county. Fair
Association President Rory
Martin is concerned that fair
directors have been excluded
from city and county deliber-
ations.
"The future of the Sarasota
County Fair is being dis-
cussed and potentially im-
pacted by county staff with-
out the input and participa-
tion of the Fair Association,"
Martin stated in an April 1 let-
ter to County Commission
Chair David Mills.

School" pilot program being
tested in Sarasota County.
Local schoolchildren en-
joyed a Florida-grown spe-
cialty in their lunchrooms -
green collards, freshly picked
and freshly prepared. The
Southern specialty was
served with pork chops in
honor of the district's annual
Soul Food Day.
The collards were provided


by Florida A&M University
and the New North Florida
Cooperative. They were deliv-
ered to Sarasota County
schools by members of the
cooperative, and were pre-
pared and served in cafeteria
lines by school district food
service personnel during the
various lunch periods in
Sarasota County elementary,
middle and high schools.
Sarasota County Farm to
School pilot day was also an
opportunity to demonstrate
the program to local farmers
from Sarasota, Manatee and
Charlotte counties.


Examples of local crops
that could be served in the
future, if the Farm to School
program takes hold, include
potatoes, green beans and
tomatoes, as well as fresh
Florida citrus, such as
oranges, tangerines and
grapefruit.

evidence presented to the
CRC has supported granting
the city manager more power.
The advisory board has
reached an "unofficial" meet-
ing of the minds on the city
manager issues and is leaning
toward endorsing the pro-
posed changes.
"We've reached a general
consensus, but we certainly
haven't reached a recommen-
dation," Roberts said.
The term limits issue is
much more confusing and
needs more discussion, as the
mayor's recent retirement
announcement has revealed.
In a vacuum
Many people do not see
how all this talk of hiring and
firing can create a problem,
since there is no crisis affect-
ing Venice City Council.
That wasn't the case 30
years ago, when disputes con-
cerning the police chief be-
tween the mayor and city
manager back then called
city administrator led to
calls, for impeachment and
resignation.
As reported in the April 10,
1975, Venice Gondolier Sun,
City Administrator Paul
Youngberg abruptly resigned
at a council meeting after 15
years on the job because of
interference from Mayor
William McCracken. Young-
berg's resignation also
prompted talk of a walk-out
by city employees.
The list of grievances from
Youngberg was lengthy, but
among them were accusa-
tions that the mayor:

,or construction, but the third
proposed median closest to I-
75 would be part of the
Honore Avenue extension
that is slated for construction
beginning in 2010.
Not in my backyard
One after another, repre-
sentatives of neighborhoods
like Sorrento East, Mission
Valley and Mission Estates
testified in support of the pro-
ject.
It became more clear as
local residents testified their
support was at least partly
based fear of developments
like Henry Rodriguez' pro-
posed 220-acre project with-
out access to State Road 681.
A lack of access to S.R. 681
by residents in new develop-
ments may cause them to


seek shortcuts to main arter-
ies through already existing
developments.
"The problem is it creates a
shortcut through our quiet
neighborhoods," said Lucille
Christ. She also wondered if
Oscar Scherer Park officials
had concerns with water
runoff and non-native plant
life being introduced on its
boundaries, or if it would pass
muster with Red Cross emer-
gency route evacuation rules.
"It's a great idea," said Rose
Mustari, a resident of Lake
Village Mobile Home Park. "If
you don't create other access
points, they would bother
us."
Ditto with Zane Cooper, of
Spanish Point Mobile Home
Park, located behind the pro-
posed Rodriguez develop-


ment.
"The alternative would
add access problems that the
Rodriguez' development
would cause," he said.
Norm Stuart, with the
Sorrento East neighborhood
association said "we desper-
ately need this." He was fol-
lowed by Robert Merrill,
Sorrento East's past presi-
dent, who pointed out Oscar
Scherer could probably use
the fire access points instead
of tearing down fences to
access fires as they do now.
"Even if it eases traffic
(congestion on U.S. 41) only a
little, if you lived here you'dbe
happy with just a little bit
more quiet as well," Merrill
said.
"If not access from Rod-
riguez' development will fol-


low people all down into (US)
41," he added.
The plan will improve
access to the roadway for the
755 property owners in Sor-
rento East and developing
properties along both sides of
the road, including Palmer
Ranch and county property.
An underused road, accord-
ing to the county and FDOT,
S.R. 681 under the plan will
spark the beginning of a much-
needed grid system when it is
linked with the proposed
Honore Avenue extension.
The access management
plan has been under discus-
sion by the county and FDOT
since 1997, according to the
state agency.

State must invest more in juvenile justice


n a guest column opposite this page, Mark
Fontaine, Florida Juvenile Justice Asso-
ciation executive director, paints a bleak
picture of how the state funds programs for
young people in trouble. His column should
open some eyes, but he did not have the
space to give all the troubling details.
A recent study by the Commission on
Mental Health and Community Solutions
found that 50 of every 100 youths in Florida's
Juvenile Justice commitment programs have
been diagnosed with a serious mental illness.
In a survey by the Department of Juvenile
Justice, 63 percent of those young people
have a diagnosed mental disorder or high-
risk behavior involving substance abuse -
or both.
The struggle to treat and rehabilitate those
young people is one we cannot shortchange.
As Fontaine points out, Florida has done a
poor job of keeping up with inflation when it
comes to funding these much-needed pro-
grams.


In the past 12 years, while inflation has
driven up tie cost of doing business by at
least 38 percent, money dedicated to juvenile
justice services has nearly stood still. For
example:
The PACE Center for Girls Inc. saw a 1.6
percent increase in funding the past 12 years.
Day-treatment funding went up only 1.8
percent.
Money for juvenile assessment centers
increased only 1.8 percent since 1994.
Conditional release programs saw a 1.7-
percent increase in funds.
The Legislature at least the House -
has made an effort this session to catch up.
The budget for the DJJ last year was $650 mil-
lion. Last week, the House version of the
General Appropriations Act called for a
$693.9 million budget this next fiscal year -
about a 6.7 percent jump. The Senate's bud-
get proposal is $655.8 million less than a 1-
percent increase.
The final budget will be hashed out in the


closing days of the legislative session. We
hope the House and Senate can agree to fig-
ures close to those of the House if not
more.
The juvenile treatment and holding pro-
grams are mostly privatized. And, while each
firm that contracts with the state is responsi-
ble for making its budget work, we are
expecting more than can be delivered at the
prices Florida wants to pay.
According to the report, more than 17 per-
cent of beds in programs have been turned in
due to the provider's inability to perform dur-
ing the past 24 months.
Too many providers are shying away from
bidding on services because the liability risk
is too high. In the past two years, there were
22 residential/detention requests for bids:
five were canceled because there were no
bidders; 13 had one bidder and four had
more than two bidders.
That kind of response clearly indicates the
problems the state must deal with in attract-


ing private companies to operate juvenile
programs.
While all this has transpired, the quality of
care has diminished and young people with
serious mental health needs are overwhelm-
ing facility staffs.
If the state government takes over the pro-
grams, according to this report, it will need a
30-percent increase in resources.
We call on legislators to take a careful look
at this potential catastrophe in juvenile jus-
tice and adjust the final budget request to
reflect their findings.
Juvenile delinquents can grow up to be
hardened criminals if we do a poor job of
rehabilitation when we have the opportunity.

agement District governing board includes a

Growth is biggest threat to quality of life


Editor:
Why do Sarasota County governments treat their current
residents like stepchildren as they pursue the glamour of
growth?
A decade ago our governments persuaded us to enact a 1-
percent sales tax to catch up on needed infrastructure. Today
we find that because inadequate impact fees were assessed on
additional growth, the deficit of schools, roads, and other infra-
structure is worse than ever. Yes, those unpaid impact costs will
come out of our wallets.
But it is the impacts of growth that reduce our quality of life
that are most damaging in the long run.
A recent worst-case example: Two large churches were built
on the largely rural section of Center Road two decades ago.
The effect of widening Center Road to four lanes to accommo-
date the thousands of nearby new homes approved by the
county will make left turns from these churches very haz-
ardous.
So the county plans to require eastbound traffic from the
Catholic church to turn right, then make a U-turn down the
road. Hopefully, common sense will force the county to pro-
vide a stoplight for safe left turns. Even so, the cost of the light
would be paid for by current residents.
Venice city council members too often let developer repre-
sentatives pooh-pooh concerns of island residents about tall
buildings and higher densities. Another 10 cars won't cause
any problems or costs to city residents. Shadows from the tall
buildings won't harm smaller homes. Take our word for it.
Yes, Cinderella we know how you feel.
R.J. Windgassen

Consultant should
be the last step
Editor:
I enjoyed reading your arti-
cle on the hiring of an energy
consultant for the Sarasota
schools.
The concept of reducing
costs by more efficient use is
excellent. However, as in most
everything, the devil is in the
details.
From what I gather from
the article, the consultant's
main effort will be directed at
behavior modification rather
than the tried-and-true
methods used by industry to
reduce energy costs.


Ever since the OPEC oil
embargo of the '70s, industry
has achieved a substantial
reduction in energy con-
sumption by insulation;
improved lighting; more effi-
cient HVAC, furnaces and
electric motors; setback ther-
mostats; more efficient win-
dows; cogeneration and
many others.
These projects are quan-
tifiably effective because they
usually go through a cost jus-
tification prior to implemen-
tation, and do not depend on
people being energy savers.
In my opinion, only when
all these type of projects have


been identified, reviewed and
completed should the school
board consider spending
money on "behavior modifi-
cation" consultants, especial-
ly since their fees will proba-
bly be based on assumptions
on compliance with their
"turn off the lights" recom-
mendations.
When the projected sav-
ings are not achieved, it will
be easy to blame the lack of
cooperation of the employees
or poor supervisory enforce-
ment.
If the board has already
implemented all the "hard"
projects in all county schools,
it should be congratulated
and applauded by taking the
next step with the consultant.
If not, it is time to go back to
basics.

Airport attracts retirees
Editor:
As a general aviation pilot
and recent home buyer in
Venice, I have watched with
interest many of the discus-
sions involving the Venice
Municipal Airport.
Let me say right from the
start, the fact that Venice has
an active, vibrant, general avi-
ation airport was a major fac-
tor in my decision to invest
here. As I start to meet local
pilots, I have been impressed
with the number of others
who have located here due to
this fine facility.
I have also been impressed
with the active support pro-
vided by VASI (which I have
already joined), as well as city
leaders and the Airport Ad-
visory Board.


Thank you for recognizing
the airport as an outstanding
facility, and your hard work to
make it better. You have
shown great vision in this
effort both in the long-term
master plan and day-to-day
activities and should be com-
mended.

Liberals have it all wrong
Editor:
It appears to me that the
Democrats are the liars. Re-
peating things over and over
again does not make them
true.
Bush did not lie about
WMD. When you believe
something is true (and the
whole world did, including
Kerry and Clinton) it is not a
lie.
Tax cuts to the wealthiest
gives them more to invest,
which produces more jobs.
The number of people
receiving jobless benefits is at
the lowest level in six years.
The stock market is up. We
have strong economic growth
and surging federal tax re-
ceipts. The economy is up.
And before you say Bush
disclosed intelligence infor-
mation, the president has the
authority to declassify intelli-
gence reports selectively.
The United Arab Emirates,
which wanted to service our
ports. has an open economy
with a high per-capita in-
come and a sizable annual
trade surplus. Since its dis-
covery of oil, the UAE has
gone from an impoverished
region to a modern state with
a high standard of living.

We need more second stories


Affordable apartments. There's been a lot about affordable
housing for workers. I noticed yesterday, driving down to Port
Charlotte, the new strip mall south of the Walgreens and north
of Wal-Mart looks like they're putting up a facade for a fake
second story. Why not put up a second story and put apart-
ments up there? Having apartments would increase the prop-
erty value for the developer. It would provide housing and it's
less expensive to build up a second floor and a third floor than
it is a freestanding house. Maybe ask the county when some-
one's coming in with plans for a strip mall to suggest it. I know
we can't force them, but I think it would be a valuable alterna-
tive to workforce housing. I have a daughter who is a single
mom with three kids and can't find an affordable place to live
and I don't have room. What do we do?


Off limits. I think if the new
police chief wants to get the
Venice Police Department
shaped up, she ought to make
the doughnut stores off limits
and get all those fat ones on a
weight-watcher program.
Timing off. Would some-
body please check the traffic-
control device at the intersec-
tion of Center Road and
Jacaranda Boulevard? The
timing seems to be off. Every
morning the traffic is backed
up westbound on Center
Road and the light seems to
be out of sync.
Worried. In response to the
question, yes, I am veryworried
about the bird flu. It seems to
have gone from Asia to Europe
and who knows where it's going
to go next and it really is a seri-
ous concern. The other thing
I'm concerned about is this
mad cow disease. So there's a
lot more to be worried about in
this country. We've been lucky
so far.
What water? Water, water,


not for us. I read of 1,500
homes being planned by Riv-
er Road, another 535 at Vene-
tian, 7,000 homes east of Sara-
sota, etc., etc. I ask where is
there water going to come
from? The editor's note in the
Sunday Gondolier Sun says
residents in the city of Venice
can irrigate once a week. The
question is, does the county
have more water than we do?
Is this requirement just a con-
servation issue, or we actually
short on water? When the
thousands of new homes,
condos and villas are con-


structed, where will their
water come from? Someone
needs to clarify and publish
their claim.
Crack the whip. OK, here
we are, the fourth day in a row.
I'm northbound on 41 in No-
komis, coming up to Laurel.
Traffic's backed up almost a
mile for no apparent reason
other than just heavy traffic.
There's no accident or injured
pedestrians in sight. Also, not
in sight, is a DOT worker, not
one. I don't see any on 41. I
didn't see any at the Pine-
brook extension or down in
North Port working either. So
OK, good question. Where are
all the DOT workers? Half the
road is closed. Traffic is
snarled. It's snowbird season.
Tempers are running high
and nobody's working on the
roads that are half closed off.
Whoever's in charge really
needs to crack a whip around
here and get things moving.
This is a serious problem and
the sooner our elected offi-
cials realize it, the better off all
of us will be.

Juvenile justice programs


at the breaking point


"'



.' :.

MARK FONTAINE



Imagine your household
budget is only 2 or 3 percent
more than it was in 1994.
Could you buy food and
clothes for your children, re-
pair the leaky roof or fill the
gas tank of your car?
Probably not, and you
couldn't because what you pur-
chased for a dollar back then
would require $1.40 today. You
and your family would be
struggling to survive, more so
than you already do.
That's the situation the pri-
vate providers who serve 80
percent of the youth in
Florida's juvenile justice sys-
tem find themselves in today.
Little or no increases in what
the state of Florida pays to
take care of the state's most
troubled children has result-


ed in a $100-million budget
hole. The system, which has
shown so much promise, is
ready to go over the edge.
How big is the crisis? In the
past two years, nearly 20 per-
cent of residential-treatment
beds have turned over be-
cause of problems operating
them, such as staff turnover
due to low salaries.
Of the most recent 22 re-
quests for bids for residential
and detention programs, 18
had either no bidders or only
one bidder. In February, three
proposals to operate residen-
tial programs for moderate-
and high-risk male youths in
Miami-Dade, Palm Beach and
Collier counties had no bid-
ders.
The turnover rate for di-
rect-care staff in residential
programs is 55 percent. Staff
is exhausted from working
double shifts, and even the
most dedicated workers are
leaving for better-paying and
less-stressful jobs at big-box
discount stores.
Providers have reduced
health care, mental health
services, food services and
even community service pro-
jects where youth in trouble
with the law learn to give
something back.


Privatization of services for
juvenile offenders has been a
success in Florida. Nonprofit
and for-profit companies
have served the state, result-
ing in a decline in the overall
rate of juvenile crime. But pri-
vatizing services does not
mean abdicating the state's
responsibility for funding
those services.
Last year nearly 100,000
youth got into trouble with
the law and were referred to
the Florida Department of
Juvenile Justice. Approxi-
mately 10,000 of those were
placed in residential facilities
and the remainder served in
the community.
Where will they go next
year? The answer will be de-
cided in the coming weeks by
the Department of Juvenile
Justice, the governor's Budget
Office, and the Florida Leg-
islature.
One fact is certain: Pro-
viders have economized and
saved until there is nowhere
left to cut. It's up to the state of
Florida to take the next step.
Mark Fontaine is executive
director of the Florida
Juvenile Justice Association.

The hunt for the hunter


Discovery of two bodies
10 years ago leads to
Conahan.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first
in a two-part series on the search
for the man who preyed on home-
less men 10 years ago in
Southwest Florida.
BY CHRISTY ARNOLD
STAFF WRITER

The first body surfaced in
northern Charlotte County.
A North Port family's dog
brought home the head of the
second.
A motorist found the third,
also in North Port.
Two county workers dis-
covered the head of the fourth
in Murdock.
Detectives found the fifth
body just 150 yards away from
the fourth.
All young white men. All
naked. All in the woods. All
within a few miles.
"It looked like we probably
had a serial killer in the area,"
recalled Charlotte County
Sheriff's Lt. Rick Hobbs.
The hunt for the hunter
began 10 years ago Monday.
April 17,1996
In 1996 Money magazine
named Punta Gorda/Char-
lotte County as the No. 2 best
place to live in America. The
magazine based the accolade,
in part, on the area's low inci-
dence of violent crime.
Little did they know.
Charlotte County and
North Port detectives sus-
pected the second-best place
to live in the country was
home to a serial killer.
"We could have a problem
... I think we have a serial
killer," Charlotte County
Sheriff's Capt. Mike .Gandy,,
then a lieutenant and head of
the Major Crimes Unit,
recalled saying to a detective.
"Call it a hunch or whatever,
something led us both to
wonder."
Detectives from the sher-
iff's office and North Port
Police Department had been
investigating the deaths of
three men whose naked
remains were found in wood-
ed areas between 1994 and
early 1996. Officials suspected

The discovery of two murdered men 10 years ago led to the arrest of Daniel 0. Conahan Jr.,
who remains on Death Row after being convicted of killing one of the men.


the men led transient
lifestyles involving drugs or
alcohol abuse. They may have
been tied to trees and had
their genitals removed.
"When we started compar-
ing our cases, we couldn't
believe our eyes," Hobbs said
of the crime scenes. "You
couldn't tell them apart."
, Then,came April 1,7,, 1996,
the day that jump-started a
multi-agency investigation
leading to the most intense
surveillance in local history
and the arrest of the man
believed to be the serial killer
living in the No. 2 best place
in the United States.
Two county workers found

Street and Trembley Avenue

acts of sodomy," according to
court and military records.
Conahan stayed in the

Chicago area, coincidentally
during the time period in
which three serial killers
preyed on men in the same
area. John Wayne Gacy Jr.
killed 30-plus boys and young
men between 1978 and 1979.
Larry Eyler confessed to mur-
dering 20-plus men between
1980 and 1984. Jeffrey Dah-
mer, who murdered more
than a dozen young men, met
some of his victims in Chi-
cago's gay community, offer-
ing them money to pose for
photographs; he was arrested
in 1991.
During Conahan's 1977-
1993 stay in the Chicago area,
he developed a longtime rela-
tionship with Harold Linde
and his family.
Conahan helped Linde,
who admittedly had a history
of crystal methamphetamine
and cocaine use, to stay off
alcohol, court records state.
"He was like a brother to
me," Linde's sister, Nancy
Thoreson, told investigators
in 1999. "He was like an angel
that came into my family's
lives, and when he was a part
of our family, when he and
my brother were together, it
was like a dream come true
for me to 'have that kind of
environment, to have that
kind of a family life. It was
ideal."
Linde's parents, Robert and
Wilma, continue to send
money and letters to Con-
ahan today.
"We keep in touch with
Danny," Wilma Linde said in
March. "He sounds pretty
good in his letters."
Harold Linde, stricken with
HIV and Parkinson's disease,
died sometime after Con-
ahan's sentencing.in 1999.
"'I love him," Linde told
investigators.
Linde also shared with
detectives one of Conahan's


sexual fantasies.
"He told me a fantasy
about picking up a hitchhiker
and taking him out in the
woods and (having sex with)
him," Linde told detectives.
Open cases
Conahan held a variety of
jobs and frequented gay bars
in Chicago, as did serial killers
Eyler and Dahmer.
Ten days before Christmas
in 1983, Patrick Tullis visited
Conahan's apartment. Tullis
stabbed Conahan in the
abdomen "for no apparent
reason," according to the
Cook County State Attorney's
Office in Chicago. Tullis
served four years in prison for
the stabbing.
Tullis returned to the
streets of Chicago and found
a reason for stabbing Ray-
mundo Hernandez, 43, and
strangling John Tolbert, 25.
Tullis told police he had an
intense hatred for homosexu-
als and killed the two men in
April 1987 because they
solicited him for sex, accord-
ing to the Chicago Sun-Times.
Conahan remained in
Chicago until March 1993,
placing him in the metropoli-
tan area during the time peri-
od of unsolved homicides in
the Cook County Forest Pre-
serve cases investigators
would later learn share simi-
larities to the ones in
Charlotte County and North
Port.
"They still have some open
investigations," Hobbs said of
the Cook County Forest Pre-
serve Police.
Conahan moved in with
his parents in their Punta
Gorda Isles condominium on
March 24, 1993.
Three days later, Charlotte
Harbor landscaper Billy Pat-
ten disappeared.

BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

A 90-year old Venice man
who murdered his wife
almost three years ago was
arrested recently for violating
his probation.
Paul L. Armbruster, 3600
block Penn Way, Venice, was
arrested by the Sarasota
County Sheriffs Office April 4.
"He failed to report during
his assigned time, and was
released on his own recog-
nizance," Florida Depart-
ment of Corrections spokes-
man Robby Cunningham
said. "It has been turned over
to court."
Probationers are generally
required to report to their
probation officers according
to a predetermined schedule.


Armbruster is scheduled to
be arraigned May 12, accord-
ing to court records. He has
pleaded not guilty to the pro-
bation violation charge.
Armbruster's attorney, Jack
McGill, could not be reached
for comment.
Armbruster was sentenced
June 24, 2004, to 10 years'
felony probation for killing
his 82-year old wife. His pro-
bation was to have ended
June 23, 2014.
Messed up
It apparently began for
Armbruster and his wife as
they talked about how neither
wanted to go on living without
the other. However, he "messed
up" their wish to die together,
leaving him to face a second-
degree murder charge.


Armbruster told investiga-
tors his wife was an Alz-
heimer's patient and was not
aware of what was going on
around her.
He explained to detectives
how his wife had been dis-
charged from a local assisted
living facility the day before
he killed her.
Armbruster told investiga-
tors he made the decision to
take her life because she was
suffering.
Plan for dying
Armbruster told investiga-
tors he had devised a plan for
the two to die.
According to police re-
ports, Armbruster put his wife
in the front seat of their car
and belted her in. He de-
scribed how he cut a garden


hose and ran it from the car's
exhaust through the rear win-
dow.
Armbruster started the car
while his wife sat belted in the
front passenger's seat. Arm-
bruster got out of the car and
closed the door. He said he
left his wife alone in the car to
suffocate and went back
inside the house to ensure her
death before taking his own
life.
He said he waited as long
as two hours before checking
on his wife. When he did, he
believed she was dead.
Botched suicide
Armbruster said he took
sleeping pills and rejoined his
wife in the car. He said he
drifted in and out of sleep
until the car stalled. Arm-


bruster said he did not restart
it because the- engine over-
heated.
He said he went back into
the house where he took
more sleeping pills before
going back out to the car.
Armbruster said he slept fit-
fully in the car, realized his
suicide attempt had failed,
went back into the house and
went to bed.
Armbruster told detectives
that "we were supposed to go
together."
Armbruster told police his
wife had not asked him to
assist in her death in the past.
She did not ask him to on the
day of her death, either, the
report stated.

Lady Indians



maul Southeast

softball tournament continues at Venice High.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Venice High softball coach
Larry Sandburg was a little
uneasy after watching lowly
Southeast score first on his
vaunted Lady Indian squad
Monday night.
"Sure, I worry when we
fall behind," said Sandburg,
the longtime baseball men-
tor turned softball coach.
Sandburg certainly wasn't
worried for long.
Maureen Sandidge wiped
out the deficit with a three-
run home run in the bottom
of the first and the Lady
Indians blew it open with a
nine-run second inning.
By the time the stats were
tallied, the Lady Indians had
recorded a 16-1 laugher over
the visiting Lady Seminoles
in Class 5A District 12
quarter-final action.
Venice (24-2), ranked No.
3 in the latest 5A poll, will


play in a 7:30 p.m. semifinal
Wednesday against Port
Charlotte (19-7).
Port Charlotte defeated
Charlotte. 8-6. in a quarter-
final game played Tuesday
night at the host VHS site.
Port took an 8-0 lead into
the seventh inning but
Charlotte rallied with seven
straight two-out hits against
Lady Pirate pitcher Sam
Crews.
So, after defeating South-
east 11-1 and 10-0 during
the regular season, could
anything really be different
in the tournament?
Complacency is the big-
gest enemy in such scena-
rios, but it didn't come close
to happening Monday night.
Sandidge, the hard-hitting
sophomore first baseman,
socked a long home run to
centerfield to kick-start the
Lady Indians.
Everyone had fun in the
second inning, as the Lady


Indians sent 13 batters to the
plate.
Stephanie Sullivan led off
with a double. The freshman
would add another two-
bagger before the frame was
over.
Felicia Taylor plated two
runs with a single. Nikki
Clark, Brittany Hipple, Megan
Watson and Heather Boyts
also had RBI singles. Three
runs scored on errors.
Winning pitcher Heather
Laird improved her record to
11-1 with a four-hitter over
five innings work. She fan-
ned 11.
"We need to stay focused
and keep going in a positive
direction," Sandburg said.
Heather Boyts will be the
starting pitcher Wednesday
for Venice, which has defeat-
ed Port Charlotte by 1-0 and
7-0. Jessica Jobst, who took
both losses, is expected to
pitch once again for the Lady
Pirates.
Port Charlotte had the
underdog upset special in
last year's district tourna-
ment, surprising Lakewood

Water authority to retool itself


The board will take six months to develop

a strategic plan, including more participation

by cities, both members and not.


BY GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER

The Peace River Manasota
Regional \\Water Supply Au-
iii, ilii launched a six-month
drive to ,'t .'.'i' itself Fri-
day The goal is to retool the
utility into a more effective
deal -maker
!it... :,'.il was set after
neady two hours of discus-
sion, and, at times, quibbling,
.iiti, i. board members at a
workshop Friday.
The quibbling came as the
board debated how best to
both revise the authority's
.o,'tin.ince and beef up its
- .ff capabilities to better
execute the new goals.
The authority will hold
more meetings in the next six
months to consider options
for allowing customer cities
to have a seat on the four-
county board.
Once a so-called "strategic
plan" is adopted, the author-ity
will analyze what skills the
staff will need to carry it out.
The authority also gave its
executive director, Pat Leh-
man, approval to create five
new positions to help the au-
thority prepare for its new role.
The goal to expand the
authority from a utility that
sells bulk water from the
Peace River to a regional
powerhouse that buys water
supply projects in other loca-
tions has become more ur-
gent in recent years.


That's because the Legis-
lature passed a law last year
to funnel money to water
projects that serve a region.
Also, this month, the South-
west Florida Water Manage-
ment District
adopted a ,,
policy requir-
ing its grant
pro-gram to
fund only re-
gional water
projects
endorsed or
controlled by
the water au- Staub
thority.
"Now, the thrust is to allow
us to grow where we need to
go," said board member Pat
Glass of Manatee County.
She said she felt that the
authority has made "monu-
mental" progress to become
more of a regional water
supplier in recent years.
That's despite some strong
criticism, chiefly from Char-
lotte County commissioners,
about the executive director's
shortcomings.

Leamed distrust
Examples of the progress
include a master water sup-
ply contract approved last
fall ,and current negotiations
that appear close to imple-
menting the so-called water
supply "gap plan."
"Do we want to get busy,
or do we want to sit around
and talk some more?" Glass


said.
Member Adam Cummings
of Charlotte County said the
authority's vision should be
simple: "openness, equity and
innovation."
The authority's perfor-
mance to date has failed to
demonstrate those qualities,
he said.
"My distrust is a learned
behavior," he added.
However, Cummings said
that his county is engaged in
negotiations with the author-
ity that may renew his faith
in its staff.
Those negotiations involve
a proposal to build two sepa-
rate interconnect pipelines to
link Charlotte County, Punta
Gorda and the water authori-
ty's supplies.
The county has requested
the deal include a "first right
of refusal" clause to give the
county first rights to buy
water from the city.
Cummings also agreed
with Glass that a "strategic
plan" should be established
before the staff is reorganized.
"You should start with the
end in mind the vision," he
said. "I've waited (for that) for
six or seven years; I can wait
another six or seven months."

Bad odds
Member Shannon Staub, a
Sarasota County commission-
er, said, despite the recent
success, the authority's staff
has failed to maintain close
communications with local
elected officials and the
members of the Water Plan-
ning Alliance.
The authority organized
the Water Planning Alliance


some five years ago as a peri-
odic summit to consider link-
ing water supplies. All cities,
counties and utilities in the
region are invited to partici-
pate.
One problem, however, is
that the alliance is an unstruc-
tured entity, said Lance de
Haven-Smith, facilitator of
the workshop. Without a
structure, the alliance could
provide both support and
opposition to authority goals,
he said.
"I'm afraid you're going to
get whipsawed," he said.
Cummings said he envi-
sions the alliance continuing
to serve as a "stakeholders
group" to provide input on
authority goals,
Another option under con-
sideration is to open the au-
thority's membership to
cities. That would give such
towns as North Port and
Punta Gorda a seat on the
board.
But Cummings is con-
cerned that would allow
cities that don't depend on
water from the authority,
such as Bradenton, the right
to vote on water projects.
"I can count the number
of cities in Sarasota County
and the number in Charlotte
County and I don't like the
way it comes out," Cummings
added.
Another option would be
to give counties and cities
weighted votes that reflect
their relative dependence on
the authority's water.
Doug Manson, authority
attorney, warned that estab-
lishing weighted votes can be
a difficult process.

Osprey hoping



for housing help


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


Revitalization of its water-
front continues to vex the
committee responsible for
coming up with a plan in
Osprey after more than 13
months of deliberation.
But the Osprey Revitali-
zation Committee thinks that
Sarasota County should offer
some help. And help could
be in the offing.
The board of county com-
missioners has scheduled a
distribution of funds next
month earned from the sale
of escheated lots in North
Port. The money would go
to "community groups that
want to do innovative things
involving affordable hous-
ing," said Wendy Thomas,
county community housing
manager. "We're looking for
unusual projects."
Martina Guilfoil, chief ex-
ecutive officer of the County
Housing Trust, confirms the
approach.
'At the moment, we have
no land or, money. But we'll
have the money soon," she
said. "We're looking for op-
portunities."
In the three months she
has been in the position, she
said, "we've been chasing
opportunities. Ideally, we run
the numbers, find some sub-
sidy sources, do some lever-
aging and locate partners."
"We want to be involved
from the outset in an inno-
vative project," she added.
Jay Leland, vice chair of
the revitalization committee,
offered the thought at a re-
cent meeting that the county
might be able to help Osprey.
"In the way Snook Haven
in Venice and the 11-acre
Young property on Blackburn
Point Road in Osprey were
acquired to preserve water-
front access, maybe the
county could find a way to save
the waterfront restaurant resi-


dents want to keep on Bayview
Avenue," he suggested.
The road, west of U.S. 41
near Osprey Village, leads to
the restaurant. It is bordered
by an aging apartment house,
older single-family homes
and duplexes and a rowing
club. The street, in declining
condition, offers the only
access by land to the locally
popular restaurant.
A tract of land totaling 5.5
acres abutting Bayview Ave-
nue has been proposed as a
luxury condominium com-
munity. Plans for the mixed-
use development, which
would include retail units on
U.S. 41, over which apart-
ments would be built, and
55 two-story condominiums,
were described to the com-
mittee in January 2005. The
land would require rezoning.
Altogether, 14 acres of land
from the Hidden Bay condo-
minium community north to
Osprey village were designat-
ed for waterfront revitaliza-
tion. Originally, it was hoped
the entire tract could be de-
veloped by a single entity.
A neighborhood workshop
for the property-owners on
Bayview Avenue and Osprey
residents will be set. County
planners anticipate it will be
held in May.
"When you consider how
tough it is to find a place you
can afford around here," said
Leland, "this kind of use for
the property makes sense."
He posed the question of
where a starting teacher in
the Sarasota county system
would go to get a mortgage
for a single-family home.
"Really, if we could find a
way to avoid more costly
condos blocking our way to
the water, and replace what's
there now with affordable
housing, it would be a bless-
ing," Leland continued. "I
really think the county has a
great opportunity to help
revitalize our waterfront."

one); hike or bike one of the
beautiful trails in the park;
relax at a picnic table under
the live oaks; shop for earth-
friendly merchandise and

sire that it remain natural
and unspoiled, and that it be
made into a state park for
the enjoyment of the com-
munity. Today the park rep-
resents the "real Florida" Elsa
knew in the '30s and '40s,
when she lived with her fam-
ily in Osprey.

Desiree Melton, Cara Herman, Susan Cairo and Lilly Bateman are the bridal party featuring clothes by Auntie's Attic.


BY COURTNEY LINN
STAFF REPORTER

In support of the Venice
MainStreet Association,
members of the community
signed on to be fashion mod-
els for a day.
Representative of all areas
of the community and in-
cluding .a Venice Gondolier
Sun reporter, the men and
women learned to walk the
walk for the annual fund-rais-
ing fashion show.
Held at the Venice Little
Theatre this year, the event
featured 49 models. I was
asked to participate as a
reporter.
Most of the models are
well-known, active members
of the community. Finding
the time to find the right out-
fit for the show was difficult,
yet that was one of the rules
for participants of this show.
Rather than showcasing the
work of one store, the show
was designed to feature cloth-
ing available from all the
Venice MainStreet clothing
stores. Each model had to
find a vendor to provide an
outfit for the show.
After visiting many differ-
ent shops, I landed at La Casa
Del Quetzal in the Venice
Mall, owned by Lily Weber.
Recently, she showed off her
fashions at the NAMI (Na-
tional Alliance for Mental
Illness) Fashion Show and
Fundraiser.
Backstage at the show,
many of the models took their
time getting ready. These reg-
ular Venice citizens looked
like professional models. Su-
san Cairo, an employee of
Lighthouse Lighting, was one
of the first models to arrive,
and with good reason. She
wore a beautiful, lace bridal
gown, complete with veil,
compliments of Auntie's Attic.
Auntie's Attic had a full bridal
party for its entry at the fash-
ion show.


HISTORY
Formed 18 years ago, the
Venice MainStreet Association
is a group that is dedicated to
the preservation of the city
and its special history as a
John Nolen-master planned
community, a place where
everyone will have the feeling
of a place where values and
morals still count. For more
information, call 484-6722.


While preparing for the
show to start, many people
from the community were
helping each other out in
support of Venice MainStreet.
They were also eager to help
me fit in. All these men and
women seemed so at ease,
but I felt nervous about hav-
ing my photo taken. I despise
having my picture taken. I
never know what position to
stand in. I would never make
it on the red carpet. But, the
other models in the show
were more than willing to
help me.
I thought more of the mod-
els would be intimidated by
the event, but many of them
had been in fashion shows
before. In fact, the model who
goes by dthe name Lilliana was
a professional model in her
home country of Colombia.
She offered us all tips and
tricks of how to show off our
outfits better.
At the start of the show, we
were all grouped off by ven-
dor, and I was placed with
three ladies from the Venice
community. Gaye Stewart, a
Realtor with an office in the
Venice Mall, helped me to be
more confident on the run-
way. She taught me how to hit
my marks on the stage and
how to not upstage myself.
The next woman in my
group was Babe Hart. Hart
works for Stoneybrook Golf &
Country Club and is in charge
of special events. On the side,


she does a bit of modeling
and is a frequent participant
in fashion shows.
Finally, there was Betty
Intagliata. Intagliata is the
president of the Venice Area
Historical Society. Each one
of these ladies took time from
their busy schedules to sup-
port the Venice community.
A highlight for many of the
participants was that we only
had to wear one outfit each,
which I understand at most
community fashion shows,
the models are said to wear at
least four. Not having any
wardrobe changes meant


that the models could be
more relaxed. They wouldn't
have to hurry up and change
after they went on stage.
When the modeling began,
each person was introduced
on stage, and it was an-
nounced who he or she was
and what they do for the
community of Venice. I was
not alone on stage when they
called my name. I had my
three prominent ladies of the
Venice community right
behind me in case I choked
when the cameras flashed.
At the end of the show,
each model walked out one


more time, walked off the
stage and exited through the
audience. We all waited in the
VLT lobby for the tickethold-
ers to come out and get a bet-
ter glimpse of our outfits, and
perhaps lead them back to
our respective stores for some
shopping.
The event was an interest-
ing one for me.
Now I can add model to
my list of accomplishments.
' But what makes the fash-
ion show truly fantastic is the
people involved actually
embody what MainStreet
represents.

S.e Fact or Fiction
rng For You

If your bottom line is to have the absolute smallest monthly
payment possible, this may be for you. It's a brand new 40-year
mortgage and your first 5 years of payments are calculated at
only 1.5%. This is not an introductory teaser or gimmick. Your
payment is locked and will not make any unexpected increase. It
is 5 years of the lowest payments ever offered. The monthly
payment is only $277.00 for every $100,000 you would borrow.
You can purchase a new home or refinance to combine
mortgages, credit cards and bills, and lines of credit all for an
incredibly low payment. You can get cash for home
improvements and cash to invest. SO WHAT'S THE CATCH? In
exchange for your extremely low monthly payment, your balance
will not drop. Actually your balance will increase, but only
slightly. The small increase in your balance is a small fraction
compared to the cash equity you build over the same period. In
real dollars your balance will increase about 3% per year. This
equates to about a $3,000.00 increase per $100,000 you borrow.
That is pocket change compared to the real dollar amount of cash
equity we are building here in Southwest Florida. The whole key
and logic to this program is our booming property values. Our
home's values are increasing from 10% to 30% per year, second
only to California. How much did your property value increase in
just one year? At least $25,000 to $50,000 and many even more!
More cash equity is built through appreciation than you could
ever build by paying principle on a mortgage. You do not have to
pay principle. Save your money. Your cash equity will grow at
record rates on its own, without your help. This mortgage
program and our booming values give you the best of both
worlds, a record low payment and record equity growth.

To make it even easier there is no income verification. You
simply state your income. Finally, there are no points, origination
fees or broker fees. This cuts your closing costs in half.

North Port's confusion encapsulated


BYANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

Time capsules are buried
with specific opening dates.
They are placed with pomp
and circumstance and can sit
in the ground for 50 to 100
years, waiting patiently until
their opening date arrives.
Often the ,opiining- are
accompanied by equal, if not
more celebration, than when
the stationary time machines
were buried.
Rarely are such capsules
buried early with no fanfare
whatsoever. But apparently
that's what happened last
week in North Port.
Many people thought the
city's time capsule would be
buried diiin:. the city hall
dedication on April 15. Even
the plaque above the cap-
sules resting place says it was
'uiti ik- on April 15, 2006 at
the dedication of the new
North Port City Hall."
But the burial of the cap-
sule was slightly premature.
"It (the time capsule) went
in on the fifth (of April)," said

palm trees. It's under there.
We put it in 10 days early,
because we couldn't very well
be mixing and pouring con-
crete during the dedication."
City Manager Steve
Crowell said it was Assistant
City Manager Henry Jenkins'
decision to bury the capsule
before the dedication.
"We talked about whether
or not to have it at the dedica-
tion, but it was Henry's call,"
Crowell said.
Crowell added that the
metal capsule, which is
roughly the size of a two-
drawer filing cabinet, was
professionally sealed months
ago by a company in
California.
"Digging it up would be a
muddy mess," Crowell said.
Jenkins said he did speak
"a little about it" to Crowell,
but the capsule was not
intended to be a part of the
dedication ceremony.

was no big production,"
Jenkins said. "But we can
undo it if that's the way com-
missioners want to do it."
Confusion
However, several commis-
sioners thought the time cap-
sule was already buried.
"We filled the time capsule
when they did the ground-
breaking (for the new city
hall)," said Commission Vice
Chair Barbara Gross. "I
assumed it would have been
buried during the construc-
tion of the building."
Commission Chair Rue
Berryman also thought the
capsule went into ground
after the March 19, 2004,
ground-breaking.
Commissioner Dick
Lockhart couldn't remember
what had been placed in the
box, but thinks the city
should have made some sort
of fuss over the interment.
"You'd think they'd want to
have some sort of ceremony,"
he said.
There seems to be no end

Commissioner Vanessa
Carusone recalls that the cap-
sule was originally supposed
to be buried when city hall
was built. However, she also
remembers discussions dur-
ing a commission meeting
last year where it was discov-
ered the capsule hadn't yet
been buried. That's when the
plan to put the capsule in
place during the dedication
came about.
As a result, Carusone was
surprised Thursday to hear
the capsule was already in the
ground.
"I envisioned the burial of
the time capsule with com-
missioners holding shovels
and placing dirt over it," she
said. "I was under the
assumption that cement and
a permanent burial would be
the following work day. I am
disappointed that this grand
opening has the appearance
of being haphazardly
planned."

Mark Roath confirmed com-
missioner opinions that the
capsule should already be in
the ground.
"With respect to the time
capsule, I believe the intent
was to bury it early in the con-
struction process after the
foundations were poured or
thereabouts," Roath wrote in
an e-mail. "I do not recall the
exact details; however, I do
vaguely remember that Mr.
Henry Jenkins was to handle
that issue. (City Public
Information Officer) Stan
Frank coordinated the (2004)
ground-breaking ceremony,
and I remember the reference
was made to putting a Diet
Coke in the time capsule to
represent my part in the pro-
ject."
Frank, who typically docu-
ments city events, wasn't
aware the capsule was put in
place on April 5, and doesn't
have pictures of the capsule
being buried. He also has no


photos of the time capsule's
contents.
"I didn't know they were
putting it in," Frank said. "It's
hard to anticipate things like
this if they don't let you
know."
The 14-inch-by-14-inch-
by-20-inch capsule cost the
city $1,094, including the cost
for full preservation of all
donated items.
There's one more little
glitch.
According to the plaque,
"This time capsule should be
opened on June 16, 2059, the
100th birthday of the city of
North Port."
Again, the city is a bit
ahead of itself.
According to city docu-
ments, North Port was offi-
cially incorporated June 18,
1959, not June 16.

Sarasota County begins budget


book artwork contest


STAFF REPORT


Sarasota County wants a
new look for its budget book
and is turning to local stu-
dents for help.
The Office of Fiscal Plan-
ning is sponsoring a Budget
Book Art Contest with the
theme "Playscapes" to high-
light the visible elements of
Sarasota County Government
such as the parks, beaches,
libraries and other public
spaces. Staff selected this
theme to encourage student
artists to capture the value
and importance of these pub-
lic spaces in shaping Sarasota
County's physical and social
character.
"We hope that participa-
tion in this program will culti-
vate an awareness of local
government and the many
ways it affects their daily
lives," said Jeff Seward, gener-
al manager of Fiscal Planning
and Systems. "The 'invisible'
nature of local government


service provision creates a sit-
uation in which citizens ,
young and old alike, some-
times need to be reminded of
how important it is to stay
informed and involved in
what Sarasota County Gov-
ernment is doing with the
community's precious re-
sources, its tax dollars."
The contest is open to all
elementary and middle
school students in Sarasota
County, including students in
private schools and students
who are home schooled. The
deadline for submitting an
entry is May 10. Entries
should be mailed to Budget
Book Artwork Contest, Office
of Fiscal Planning, 1660
Ringling Blvd., Sarasota,
34236.
Copies of the contest rules
are available on the county's
Web site at scgov.net, or by
mailing a request to the above
address.
High school students who
participate in the Community


Youth Development Students

will serve as the contest
judges.
The winner's artwork will
be displayed on the front
cover of '~e Fiscal Year 2007
AdopteO idget Book, and
the back cover will contain
the second place finisher's
artwork. Up to 18 additional
entries will be selected for
inclusion within the budget
book. Any student whose art-
work is selected for inclusion
in the budget book will be
invited to a regularly-sched-
uled Sarasota County Board
of Commissioners meeting to
receive recognition from the
board. Each participant in the
contest will receive a token of
recognition for his or her par-
ticipation. Winners will be
notified during the summer.

CYD presents 10th annual


Celebration special awards


STAFF REPORT

Community Youth Devel-
opment celebrated its 10th
anniversary by presenting
three scholarships and two
special awards to local youth
and adults. More than 200
youth and adults who volun-
teer in this nationally recog-
nized organization were hon-
ored for their contributions to
providing positive activities
for Sarasota County teens.
Scholarships
A $1,000 Shannon Staub
Excellence in Leadership
Scholarship was awarded to
Eva Goodwin, a senior from
Pine View High School. Good-
win was recognized for her
leadership as the coordinator
for several events encourag-
ing youth participation in the
2004 election campaign, as
well as serving on the Com-
munity Alliance Steering
Committee. She will be at-
tending the honors college at
Florida Atlantic University in
the fall.
Andrew Greenwell, CEO of
Corporate Realty Group, cre-
ated this award in recognition
of the impact Staub and CYD
have made in his life. Green-
well announced at the Cele-
bration that the scholarship
has been endowed with do-
nations totaling more than
$10,000. Greenwell is a gradu-
ate of Florida State and

Standardized tests are be-
coming increasingly com-
mon at all levels of public and
private schooling. For many
students, these tests can be a
source of anxiety. But by fol-
lowing some simple strate-
gies, both students and their
parents can be fully prepared
for success on test day:
Tip #1: Read all directions
carefully. Oftentimes in test-
taking environments, the
adrenaline gets pumping and
students read through in-
structions too quickly. Taking
the extra time to slow down
and make sure they under-
stand the question not only
saves students from making
wrong answers, but also saves
time in the long run.
Tip #2: Listen attentively to
the teacher or proctor. It's
very easy to let anxiety take
over while waiting for the
teacher to start the exam. Talk
to your child about taking a
deep breath and not getting
distracted from the directions
the teacher is giving.
Tip #3: If the directions are
confusing, ask. Your child's
teacher is there to help
explain unclear directions. It
is always better for your child
to ask and be told by the
teacher that they can't answer
the question than to not ask
at all.
Tip #4: It's OK to take a
break. Time management is

Good time management is
critical to good test taking. It
doesn't matter if your child is
in third grade or graduate

Building up your Extensor Longus
Digitorum Pedis Communis


,- t


p ;
4.- "< "


DICK HARRISON


If you choose to sign up
with a fitness club, as I did
recently, I recommend you
schedule at least one session
with a personal trainer who
will assess your present lack
of fitness and recommend
exercises to fix whatever has
sagged. For people my age
gravity does more than keep
one from floating off into
space. It forces whatever was
once up relentlessly down.
There was a time, years
ago, when I looked pretty
good in tapered shirts with-
out a wrinkle at the waistline.
I still wear tapered shirts, but
they taper dramatically in the
opposite direction and gravity
is the reason that and
cashew nuts and ice cream.
The personal trainers ram-
bling around the floor of the
club don't even know gravity
exists. They are chosen using
some shoulder width vs. waist
measurement formula or, for
the ladies, how well they fill a
T-shirt.
In a place like this, one
expects a certain preoccupa-
tion with body parts. Casual
conversation is heavily larded
with terms such as lats, traps,
pecs and abs.
My own knowledge of
anatomy is distinctly superfi-
cial. Fifty-seven years ago,
while in art school, I had to
study anatomy and dimly rec-
ognized them as abbrevia-
tions for muscles with longer
names. Because of some
mental quirk, the only muscle
I distinctly remember is the
one with the longest name I
ran across, the Extensor
Longus Digitorum Pedis
Communis, a stingy item run-
ning down the outside of each
leg, doing who knows what.
One of the questions my
trainer asked during my
assessment was if I had any
particular goals. This was a
chance I had waited at least
53 years to happen, the
opportunity to use those
words again in a regular con-
versation.


"I'd really like to build up
my Extensor Longus Digit-
orum Pedis Communis," said
I, my voice growing louder so
those nearby could hear.
Heads turned. Even my
trainer was impressed.
After all those years you
can't imagine what a satisfy-
ing moment in time that was!
The only equivalent word
lodged in my brain is the one
Mary Poppins uses to make
her umbrella fly: supercasual-
fragilisticexpealidocious. And
that's a whole lot easier to
work into a conversation than
Extensor Longus Digitorum
Pedis Communis, particularly
if one has grandchildren (or
an umbrella).
Of all the muscles in the
body, judging by the number
of Fitness Made Simple TV
commercials, the national fix-
ation is on the abs. For years
before we were able to afford
a washing machine my
Mother laundered the fami-
ly's clothes on a washboard
with fewer wrinkles than John
Basdow's stomach.
My trainer assured me that
I, too, have abs, though
buried more deeply than any
weapons of mass destruction
in Iraq, Iran or Syria proba-
bly combined.
Given my age, I doubt
there are enough years left for
mine to become visible. It will
probably require a post
mortem period of desiccation
for them to be apparent to the
naked eye.
The only recognition I'm
likely to get for all the hard
work at the club will be if I'm
disinterred for an autopsy
and the medical examiner
scribbles a note on his report:
"NICE ABS!"

Cowboy Song John explained
as his reason for jogging on

more than 90 minutes.
Kudos to him for knowing

Race calendar
Here's a roundup of area
races:
ODA Thunder Run 5K/10OK
- This benefit for Out of
Door Academy starts at 7 a.m.
Saturday, April 22, ,and is a
scenic run through Lakewood
Ranch. Registration starts at 6
a.m. Full details and registra-


editions for lightning, and our
area is marked as among the
most dangerous for lightning
strikes, according to the
National Weather Service.
Most people who are struck
by lightning are hit before the
rain starts or just after it has
ended.
As for safety tips, the 30-30
.rule is what's suggested by the
National Weather Service. If
the sound of thunder is with-
in 30 seconds of the flash,
then you're within a hazard
area.
A full 30 minutes must
elapse between instances of
lightning before leaving shelter.
A detailed safety list is online at

Wrestling rulebook overlooks


subtle


DAVE BARRY
I 10ECOLUMNIST


(This classic Dave Barry
column was originally pub-
lishedJuly 18, 1999.)

If there's one question that
troubles every thinking per-
son, it's this: Does cheating go
on in professional wrestling?
In an effort to find an
answer, I recently attended a
tournament sanctioned by
Florida Championship Wrest-
ling. I chose FCW for two solid
journalistic reasons:
-It is a venerable circuit in
the "minor leagues" of profes-
sional wrestling, where the
potential stars of tomorrow
learn the ground rules, the
"do's and don't's," that make
up the ethical standards of the
sport.
-It is near my house.
The FCW tournament I
attended was held at the
Miccosukee Indian Gaming
Center, located west of Miami
on the edge of the Everglades.
This is one of the few gaming
facilities where you can gam-
ble on bingo, slot machines,
poker, etc., and then ... merely
by walking a short distance ...
get eaten by alligators.
I watched the wrestling
matches from a seat right next





Looking for a new job,
Sa second job or a
career switch?


to the commissioner of FCW,
Bernie Siegel. It is Com-
missioner Siegel's job to mon-
itor the sport closely for
cheating and impose stiff
punishments on wrongdoers.
"I haven't had an eye exam
in years," he told me.
In the first match, a
wrestler who had been losing
suddenly gained the upper
hand (so to speak) by kicking
his opponent in a very sensi-
tive masculine region.
"Did you see that?" I asked
Commissioner Siegel.
"See what?" he answered.
The referee didn't see it
either, even though he was
standing about two feet from
the wrestlers. It takes a special
type of person to be a profes-
sional-wrestling referee: the
type of person who, if he had
been present when the
Hindenburg was being con-
sumed by a giant ball of
flame, would have been look-
ing, with intense interest, at
the ground.
In the next match, a
wrestler thumbed his oppo-
nent in the eye, yanked on his
hair, and then choked him for
approximately five minutes
while the referee hovered
alertly nearby, looking for vio-
lations.
"These are world-class
athletes," observed Com-
missioner Siegel.
Next, in one of the featured
matches, a wrestler named
Larry Lane fought "Playboy"
Bobby Davis, who is 350
pounds of highly disciplined,
superbly trained, expertly
conditioned fat. Lane was
winning, but then Davis'
"manager," a woman named
Ebony, who was wearing a
pair of shorts that would be


e maneuver


two sizes too small for Barbie,
distracted the referee while a
third wrestler, Tony Apollo,
who was supposed to be
injured and who was not,
technically, even in this
match, climbed into the ring
and whacked Lane over the
head from behind with his
crutch.
"I didn't see anything
there," said Commissioner
Siegel, before I even asked
him.
In another featured match,
a wrestler named Anthony
"The South Beach Stud"
Adonis distracted the referee
by asking him about the rules
("Our referees are trained to
be instructive at all times,"
said Commissioner Siegel).
For several minutes, while the
referee patiently explained
the rules, directly behind his
back, Adonis' opponent, Billy
Viper, was writhing on the
mat in agony while being
repeatedly kicked in the mas-
culine region and clawed in
the eyeball region by Adonis'
manager, a woman named
Babe.
"We've had people get
their eyes gouged out,"
observed Commissioner
Siegel, adding, "They become
referees."
As he spoke, Tony Apollo,
who was not technically in
this match, either, slipped a
folding chair into the ring for
Anthony Adonis to whack
Billy Viper with.
"It looks like he's slipping a
chair into the ring," I said.
"I'll have to check the tape
on that," said Commissioner
Siegel.
In subsequent matches, a
wrestler beat his opponent in
the face with a cowbell (yes, a


cowbell); a manager named
Abudadein ("The Master of
Darkness") used his staff
("The Staff of Darkness") to
knock out a security guard;
and Duke "The Dumpster"
Droese appeared to be about
to win his match when his
opponent, the Cuban As-
sassin, clubbed him senseless
with a flagpole holding a
Cuban flag, which the Cuban
Assassin's manager, a woman
named Fantasy, had slipped
into the ring, unobserved.
"Is he allowed to hit him
with the flagpole?" I asked.
"He hit him with the flag-
pole?" responded Com-
missioner Siegel.
All in all, it was an exciting
evening of athletic competi-
tion. And although at times it
appeared, to my untrained
eye, that some of the contes-
tants might possibly have
been taking liberties with the
rules of fair play, I realize that
this could hardly be possible,
if the commissioner of
Florida Championship Wrest-
ling, who happens to be a
licensed attorney and whose
whole JOB is to keep an eye
on things, did not see anyvio-
lations.
So rest easy, America: The
popular sport of professional
wrestling is definitely "on the
up and up." Its integrity is
protected by safeguards every
bit as stringent as the ones
used to protect America's
most vital nuclear secrets.
You think I'm joking.

YSciatica
(pain
associated with the sciatic nerve)
can be easily triggered by slips
and falls (as well as the
contortions that one undergoes
trying to avoid them), heavy lifting (or
twisting the wrong way when doing so),
and exercise/sports injuries. Sitting for long
periods or being pregnant or overweight
can contribute to the problem. The sciatic
nerve starts at the lower back and branches
down through both legs into the feet. This
pathway serves as a map for the pain that can
be felt along the nerve's length or just at
specific points. In addition to pain, there may
be numbness or tingling, sensations of hot or
cold, and/or needle-like sensations. To avoid
persistent pain, visit the chiropractor.
At TWIN PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH CENTER,
we focus on the important relationship between
the spine and the millions of nerves contained
in the spinal cord. We're located at 1214-C
Venice Ave. East, where a broad range of in-
office equipment and services help us meet our
patients' individual needs and bring them
maximum relief from their discomfort. Please
call 941-412-3800 to schedule an
appointment. We offer message therapy and
have 4 licensed massage therapists on staff.
P.S. Severe sciatica can induce muscle
weakness in the affected leg(s).

had been incorrectly inserted
at the hospital, and he was
bleeding. I was horrified. I
told him he should go back to
the hospital and have them
re-insert it properly. He said
he had not asked for my opin-


ion and accused me of not
wanting to help him! He then
asked the pharmacist the
same question and got the
same response from him.
This scenario is not un-
common. It happens every
day. Please tell your readers


that just because someone

NOT mean he or she has had

Your problem may be
something that simply goes

The spooky side of Key
West is revealed in the new
Goosebumps & Ghosts Rock-
N-Walk Tour that departs
twice nightly from the
Pegasus Hotel, 501 Southard
St. at the corner of Duval. This
makes three ghost tours on
the key. Each is a little differ-
ent.
Led by a costumed angel
and devil, the tour combines
theatrics, history and fun into
a 75-minute stroll to haunting
sites in the island city's Old
Town district. Railroad baron
Henry Flagler's cursed second


wife, the bizarre count whose
obsessive love for a doomed
Cuban girl extended well
beyond her death, and the
evil doll that haunted a Key
West artist are among the
tales recounted along the
way.
The engaging interplay
between the angel and devil,
who tempts and teases the
angel and tour participants,
adds to the entertainment -
as do mood music and the
devil's occasional forays into
song and dance.
Goosebumps & Ghosts is
scheduled at 7 p.m. and 9
p.m. nightly. Cost is $17 per
person for adults and $8 for
children when booked direct
or through the concierges at
most island properties.
Reservations are required
since space is limited. Par-
ticipants are asked to arrive
10 minutes prior to the
departure time.
Bring your cameras. You
might capture a roving spirit


or two.

vations, call (305) 766-3356.

down memory lane. His song
and dance show included wife
Joey Gurl, Mark Newen-

The musical review fea-

George Gershwin's "Rhapsody

His magic included words
