City takes money away from needy


Complaint made by local resident in a letter to
"60 Minutes" in her attempt to halt a marina and
other expansion at Venice Municipal Airport.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


Hurricane-ravaged com-
munities may have to go
without because city leaders
want to build a marina at
Venice Municipal Airport.
That's just one of the many
accusations made by city res-
ident Sue Lang in a letter she
recently sent to "60 Minutes,"
a national TV news program.
Lang, who lives near the
airport, has been an outspo-
ken critic of any expansion or
improvement plans that
increase operations. The city
hopes to find out this fall if
the U.S. Department of Hous-
ing and Urban Development
will award a $2 million eco-
nomic development grant
toward permitting and design
of a marina with 200-400 boat
slips.
Airport supporters, howev-
er, say Lang and her Venice
Neighborhoods Coalition is a
"group of people claiming to
be civil-minded" but "are
seeking to close the airport,"
as was stated in a January
2005 newsletter for pilots and
airport businesses.
The letter to "60 Minutes"
has.no mention of her living
next to the airport, but it does
reference Mohammad Atta
and the other Sept. 11 aircraft
hijackers, how many of them
learned to fly at Venice's air-
port and how there are still
serious security concerns
there.
"More frightening, not
charging take off and landing
fees allows anyone to fly into
these airports without any
identity/security check, etc.
as there are no control towers
at these airports, and, there is
no one monitoring who's
landing, etc.," Lang wrote in
her letter. "The FAA pretty
much allows any aircraft that
can get up in the air, to fly and
land at these airports. ...
Mohammad Atta chose Ven-
ice because he knew that no
one was paying attention."
Her letter also will be sent
out to U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, R,
Florida, in an attempt to halt
federal funding of runway
reconstruction, pollution and
excessive noise at the airport.
Lang sent the letter to "60

OUR TOWN I1B


MARINA GLANCE
Detail of the city's proposed
marina, named Airport
Waterfront Park, were
revealed when the Venice
Gondolier Sun obtained a
copy of the conceptual plan
submitted to lawmakers in
Washington, D.C., in attempts
to win a $2 million grant.
The marina would have 200-
400 boat slips, require 30-50
acres and focus on picnicking,
water access, viewing, boat-
ing and community events.
Construction cost would be
$10 million, with $8 million
coming from local and state
sources.
If the funding is in place, final
plan design and engineering
would take six months, per-
mitting completed by
November 2008 and construc-
tion by 2010, according to the
conceptual plan.


Minutes" on Wednesday and
has yet to hear back from
them. She selected that news
program because Venice's
general aviation airport prob-
lems are being repeated
across the country.
"For two years, we have
been very patient," Lang said
in an interview. "We have
made numerous constructive
suggestions to maintain the
airport but try to have it be
much more neighbor friend-
ly.
"We're starting to feel like
the city and airport manager
and FAA really isn't interested
in doing anything to take the
resident concerns seriously,
and put the residents quality
of life above recreational and
personal flying."
Come see our town...
Though she denies she
wants to shut down the air-
port, City Manager Marty
Black and other airport sup-
porters say that is her ulti-
mate goal.
A visit by "60 Minutes"
would be welcomed and,
according to the city manag-
er, have the complete oppo-
site effect from what Lang is
hoping for.
National exposure would

Body identified



as Venice man


BY GAVIN OFF
ASSISTANT ENGLEWOOD EDITOR

Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office detectives said the
body pulled from Lemon Bay
on Wednesday was that of a
23-year-oldVenice man.
Benjamin B. Burgess, of
105 Clemson Road, was
found at 9:17 a.m. in the bay
near the 500 block of'South
McCall Road, just north of the
Charlotte County line.
According to a release,
detectives are still working
with the Medical Examiner's
Office to determine the cause
of death.
But Lt. Chuck Lesaltato
said it does not appear suspi-
cious.
"We don't suspect any foul
play," Lesaltato said. "We
won't know until (the cause)
medical examiner finishes
the report."
Lesaltato said the prelimi-
nary autopsy report could be
completed as soon as today.
He also said it could take


more than a month to pre-
cisely determine how Burgess
died.
"We're hoping the M.E. can
tell us that," Lesaltato said.
Lesaltato said no missing
persons report concerning
Burgess had been filed.
According to area resi-
dents, Burgess was wearing
red shorts and was found
near a wooden dock by the
shoreline.
Divers removed the body,
covered by a white blanket, at
around 2 p.m., several hours
after deputies roped off the
area.
Residents said that part of
Lemon Bay just south of
Indian Mound Park is not a
popular spot for swimmers.
They also said the tides are
strong enough to carry a body
across the bay in a day's time.
Anyone with information
on this case is asked to call the
District 3 Criminal Investi-
gation Bureau of the Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office. That
number is 861-1719.

Venice Municipal Airport runway 13-31, pictured above, may
receive nearly $4 million in Federal Aviation Administration
funds for reconstruction. Some airport neighbors are challeng-
ing the project saying it will increase noise problems.


the city and Venice.
"The (Venice Area) Cham-
ber of Commerce would be
thrilled to see them come to
town," said Black, after read-
ing the letter for the first time.
"It would open up for all to
see the quality of life in this
area."
City leaders have accused
Lang before of twisting the
facts in her statements. One
example was two city council
meetings when Lang cited
her experience up North
working with affordable
housing and how the marina
grant would take money
away from the poor and pub-
lic housing projects.
The city manager later
pointed out the HUD grant
was from the economic de-
velopment not low-in-
come housing and he was
surprised Lang did not krtow
the difference.
Lang has been among a
group of vocal anti-airport
residents who live in or
around Golden Beach, a
high-price beachfront neigh-
borhood next to the airport.


She considers the volun-
teer Airport Advisory Board a
rubber-stamp for airport op-
erations. A year ago, the city
restructured the seven-mem-
ber citizens board and made
five members either pilots or
those who count on airport-
related business.
The board's vice chair,
Joseph Rand, was the Venice
Aviation Society Inc. presi-
dent who accused Lang of
trying to shut down the air-
port in the 2005 VASI newslet-
ter.
The city disagrees with
Lang's assessment of the
advisory board.
Black also sees her at-
tempts to redirect runway
construction projects as no-
thing more than stall tactics
to kill $4 million worth of fed-
eral funding and delay airport
improvements.
"It would be unfortunate if
individual comments and
actions derail needed safety
improvements at this air-
port," Black said.

Term limits a convoluted issue

ASSISTANT EDITOR


R There's a split vote on term
limits that cannot be resolved
until May 4.

changes to the Venice city
charter that would give the

When it comes to term
limits, however, members

Lester Meiser Dr. Alfred Renzi Roberts and Diana Mier both
support elimination of term
COUPONSC limits, while members Jim
COUPONS Leis and Jean Trammell not
Twin Palms Chiropractic..........11A only support term limits, they


suggested reducing how long
someone can be elected to
Venice City Council.
All four members differed
as to how extensive revisions
should be, so Roberts sug-
gested each work on a specif-
ic proposal and bring it back
to the next meeting where
they would try to reach a
compromise.
Everyone did agree on one
thing: The term limits section
is confusing and needs re-
written.
"I will certainly tell you,
this section needs to be revis-
ed.... It was not well written,"
City Attorney Bob Anderson
admitted to members.
Determining term limits
Unlike the the other char-
ter amendment suggestions,
the term limits provision has
turned into a real-life sce-
nario. Mayor Dean Calamaras


will retire with more than a
year remaining on his term,
but the restriction of three
consecutive terms and nine
total years may cause poten-
tial replacements on city
council to not run.
CRC members were asked
to review term limits and
allow a council member's
term limits to not count
against time served as mayor,
and vice versa. Current rules
require a council member
who has reached term limits
to sit out a year before run-
ning for mayor, and vice
versa.
Incumbents can be hard to
beat, and to remove that
requirement could lead to
someone being on council for
18 consecutive years, Tram-
mell said.

New look for Nokomis

property unveiled


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

The beginning of the
much-hyped revitalization of
Nokomis for the 21st century
is about to begin.
Finergy Nokomis LLC's
designers have created a ren-
dering of the development
they are proposing to change
the appearance of and
upgrade the property at the
southwest corner of Albee
Road and Tamiami Trail in
Nokomis.
As a first stage the compa-
ny is holding a public work-
shop from 6 to 7 p.m. on
Wednesday, May 3, at No-
komis Community Center on
Nippono Trail, Nokomis, at
which representatives will
inform neighboring resi-
dents, discuss the concept,
seek comments and answer
questions on the application
they will be filing with
Sarasota County for the 4.1-
acre parcel.
The former gas station
property, 180 South Tamiami
Trail, has stood derelict for
some years. Finergy's inten-
tions are illustrated in the ren-
dering: the creation of a fine,
architecturally appealing
design with mini-towers


fronting the Trail and at the
entrance to the hotel. It could
herald the Naples look for
Nokomis.
"We have finalized the
breakdown of what we are
planning for our new devel-
opment on the property and
will be sharing this with the
community by holding the
community workshop," con-
firmed Eric Collin, Finergy
vice president.
The mixed-use project's
plans call for a development
that features a hotel with 75
rooms, 16 residential condo-
miniums and 14,000 square
feet of commercial space.
Negotiations are in progress
with a national hotel fran-
chise and national restaurant
companies for what will be a
prestige location when the
six-laning of U.S. 41 that's
under construction is com-
pleted in 2008.
In the fall of 2005 Collin
estimated that with the high
cost of the land, developing
the site with enclosed
drainage would have a finish-
ing budget of more than $11
million.
His Sarasota company

NEWS EDITOR


' Venice Mayor William Mc-
Cracken may face impeach-
ment following actions which
led to the resignation of City
Administrator Paul Young-
berg Thesday evening.
Youngberg said he could
no longer work with Mc-
Cracken. The move came as
a complete surprise to the


council and left normally
vociferous Council President
Berrisford Walker speechless.
"I think it would be wise if
we said nothing," Walker said.
In Youngberg's letter of res-
ignation to the council, the
administrator listed seven
legal-size pages of grievances
against the city's chief officer.
Council is expected to call
an emergency meeting in the
next few days to determine

lems now facing the city.
All four council members
agreed the city couldn't func-
tion long without some ad-
ministrative head.
Although the word "im-
peachment" was overheard,
the council members all re-
sponded with "no comment"
when asked if they would
attempt to remove Mc-
Cracken from office.
The governing body also
indicated that after the regu-


lar meeting that they were
satisfied with Youngberg's 15-
year performance with the
city and want him back on
the job.
Youngberg asked City
Clerk Steve Albee to read his
letter of resignation, which
came as a surprise to all pre-
sent.
McCracken said he "gladly
accepted" Youngberg's resig-
nation. He later denied all of
the charges leveled against
him.

State FCAT



Writing scores up


Stairway to VABI


In Sarasota County, fourth-graders exhibited
steady gains and eighth-graders huge
improvement, while tenth-grade scores stalled.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Governor Jeb Bush and
Education Commissioner
John L. Winn on Thursday
announced the results of the
writing portion of the 2006
Florida Comprehensive As-
sessment Test for students in
grades four, eight and 10. No
other grades take the written
portion of the FCAT test.
The results show a state-
wide increase in the average
score in all grade levels, and
an increase in the number of
students who scored 3.5 or
higher on the writing portion
of the FCAT. A score of 3.5 is
the standard used in the
grading of schools.
"These newly released
scores from the 2006 FCAT
are the latest evidence of
Florida's rising student
achievement," said Governor
Jeb Bush. "Our teachers have
done a remarkable job help-
ing Florida students improve
their writing, a critical skill
for future success."
State results
Here are Florida results:
Fourth Grade: 76 percent
of students scored 3.5 (out of
a possible 6) and above, an
increase from 74 percent last
year and up from 34 percent
scoring 3.5 or above in 1999.
The average essay score in-
creased from 3.7 in 2005 to
3.9.
Eighth Grade: 83 percent
of students scored 3.5 and
above, an increase from 76
percent last year and up from
51 percent scoring 3.5 or
above in 1999. The average
essay score increased from
3.8 in 2005 to 4.0.
Tenth Grade: 78 percent

of students scored 3.5 and
above, a slight decrease from
79 percent last year and still
much higher than the 60 per-
cent scoring 3.5 and above in
1999. The average essay score
increased from 3.8 in 2005 to
3.9.
County results
Sarasota County scores re-
main at or above state levels.
Sarasota County grade
four mean test scores rose
from 4.0 last year to 4.1, above
the state average of 3.9 in
2006. The percent of fourth-
graders who earned a passing
grade of 3.5 or above rose
from 81 percent last year to
82 percent.
Fourth grade mean scores
of 4.1 were the second highest
in the state. Emma E. Booker,
a school with a high percent
of low-income students, im-
proved significantly, going
from 3.9 last year to 4.2 this
year. Lakeview Elementary
and Cranberry Elementary
were the highest scoring ele-
mentary schools in the dis-
trict, with a combined score
of 4.5 each.
Grade eight mean scores
in Sarasota County, which
rose two-tenths of one point,
were identical to the state
average of 4.0 in 2006. The
big news was eighth-graders
showed a startling increase in
the percent of students who
received a passing grade of
3.5, up 8 percent from 76 per-
cent last year to 84 percent,
according to county statistics
available on the DOE Web
site.
At Phoenix Academy, the
school that was established
for at-risk eighth- and ninth-
graders, 46 percent of the
school's students scored 3.5

and above last year, climbing
to 71 percent this year.
County tenth grade mean
test scores were sluggish, re-
maining the same as last year
(3.9), identical to the state
average. Statistically, Sarasota
County schools showed a
drop in the percent of tenth-
graders who earned a pass-
ing score on the writing test,
from 79 percent last year to
77 percent, but the dip may
be less meaningful since the
district tested about 200
more students than last year
(3,254 students were tested
this year).
At Venice High School, 80
percent of the students last
year scored 3.5 and above; this
year the figure rose to 85 per-
cent. Pine View's tenth-
graders had an outstanding
mean score of 5.2 on a 6.0
scale.
"I am very pleased with
the continued progress we
are making at the elemen-
tary and middle school lev-
els," said Superintendent
Gary Norris. "I'm particularly
happy with the scores at
some of our most challeng-
ing schools. The static scores
on the high school level re-
inforce the urgent need to
implement changes in the
way we teach our teen-
agers."
New test
This year's test introduced
Writing+ (Writing Plus), a

BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

It's a tough crowd when the
biggest cheers a Cabinet sec-
retary gets during a speech
about hurricane prepared-
ness came when he suggests
gas stations be required to
have generators.
The applause came from
about 3,000 people attending
the 28th Annual National
Hurricane Conference while
listening to a speech from
Homeland Security Secretary
Michael Chertoff.
With the speech broadcast
live to a worldwide audience
about changes within Home-
land Security and the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency, most of the attendees
were painfully aware of the
problem of gasoline short-
ages following a storm.
It has become a typical -


and potentially dangerous -
pattern.
U.S. Coast Guard Vice
Admiral Thad Allen said he
remembers standing in a
town in Mississippi after
Hurricane Rita and knowing
there was no way to tap about
2,000 gallons of gasoline
stored in underground tanks.
Chertoff said he is speak-
ing to oil companies to figure
out a way to get the gas sta-
tions up and running quickly.
"We are going to insist that
your gas stations have those
generators," he said.
Chertoff's comments
came in the wake of rising
consumer frustration with oil
companies reaping huge
profits while prices at the
pump soar toward $3 a gal-
lon.
According to the Florida
Petroleum Council, 90 per-
cent of all gas stations in the


state are independently own-
ed and operated.
A generator for a service
station could range in cost
from $500 to $25,000.
Florida Division of Emerg-
ency Management Director
Craig Fugate said the state is
working to solve the problem
in a variety of ways.
Fugate suggests a closer
working relationship with the
National Petroleum Council,
which would include figuring
out ways to rewire fuel pumps
and underground tanks to
better run on generators.
Another issue is to have
backup generators on hand
for distribution to station
owners who can't afford their
own.
Fugate said the state won't
attempt to infringe on busi-
ness owners, but getting sta-
tions up and running after a
storm makes sense.


"Our economy relies on it,"
he said.
No matter what steps are
taken, Fugate stressed there
will still be less gas immedi-
ately after a hurricane no
matter how many precau-
tions are taken.
To help make shortages
less of a problem, he suggest-
ed that "in the first few days'
after a storm, unless you have
a compelling reason to be out
on the road, you won't need
gas."
Time and time again, he
said, sightseers consumed
most of the gas following the
major storms that hit Florida.
In the days after Hurricane
Charley struck Charlotte
County, the roads were jam-
med with recovery vehicles,
but many of the cars on the
road were personal vehicles
from across the state filled
with families taking pictures.


CITY


LIMITS-
opportunities for new blood
to come on board. ... I'm real-
ly concerned this might make
the council stale," Trammell
said.
Roberts presented the
other position and said he is
philosophically against the
idea of term limits. City coun-
cil seats are not like county,
state and federal positions
where the elected person
makes a large salary. Venice
City Council members are
paid $850 a month and the
mayor $1,000 a month.
And then there's the aspect
where someone can be elect-
ed to a seat, like the upcoming
mayoral election, but cannot
complete the three-year term
because he or she is at nine
total years.
"They're running for a term
they cannot complete,"
Roberts said. "That' a' conflict
in the charter we need to
clean up."
Citizen input
The committee did have its
largest turnout of citizens as
nine people showed up and
gave their opinions. A story
inside of Wednesday's edition
detailed how residents were
not showing up, making the
board's final recommenda-
tion due the first of June -
difficult.
Resident opinions were
close to 50-50 on allowing the
city manager to terminate
and suspend a police or fire
chief. As of now, a city manag-
er must receive city council
approval for this.
By a 4-2 margin, residents
spoke in favor of keeping the
finance director an indepen-
dent charter officer with
power equal to the city man-
ager. Some of the comments
reiterated previous concerns
that the real issue is the
finance director isn't being
asked to work as a "financial
advisor," as the charter re-
quires, and instead just bal-
ances the check book.
"We need a comptroller
type voice over the finances of
the city," one resident said.
"We need a strong enough
finance director to stand up to
the city manager."
Five citizens supported
changing term limits, but
nearly every person wanted to
change them in a different
way. The most common sug-
gestion was that city council
seats should be geographical-
ly linked.
As one person said, "not
everyone lives on the island"
but "five of seven council
members do."
"I saw in the paper a new
name, 'North Venice,' resi-
dent Jim Greenwood said. "It's
no longer Venice. It's now
'NorthVenice.' It's time to look
at districts."

CONSENSUS REACHED
The Charter Review
Committee has reached con-
sensus on two proposed char-
ter changes, is waiting for a
legal opinion on a third and
undecided on the fourth.
CRC members plan to make a
recommendation to Venice
City Council in June. Residents
would vote on the proposals
in November.
The next meeting is 1:30
p.m. May 4, and public input
is requested.
Here's a recap:
Police and fire chiefs -
CRC agrees the city manager
should have the power to ter-
minate and suspend police
and fire chiefs. As of now, only
city council may do this.
Finance director CRC
agrees the finance director
and all finance employees
should report to the city man-
ager. Currently, the finance
director is a charter officer
equal to and independent of
the city manager, and only
city council can hire, fire or
discipline him or her.
Managerial audits City
Attorney Bob Anderson said
the city manager already has
this power and will issue a
legal opinion supporting that
interpretation of the charter. A
decision will be reached at the
next meeting.
Term limits CRC is split 2-
2 on eliminating term limits
for council members who
want to run for mayor (one
member was absent
Thursday).


Marina details
Lang's letter does raise
questions about funding for
the proposed marina. For
years the city has considered
building a business park or
some other money-maker on
airport land, but it has always
been rooted in private devel-
opers paying the bill.
In April 2003, restaurateur
Steve Harner, who owns the
Crow's Nest Marina Rest-
aurant & Tavern and Bogey's
Sports Pub, presented plans
to the airport advisory board
for a condominium, restau-
rant, marina complex on air-
port grounds.
Eventually, Venice was
given three sets of detailed
conceptual plans in 2004,
drawn up by local developers.
All construction would have
been privately funded under
these deals.
But council members
struck them down because all
included condominiums, and
the FAA warned Venice it
would veto any development


"Mohammad Atta
chose Venice because
he knew that no one
was paying attention."

that include a strong residen-
tial component.
Black said that leads to
2006 where the city would
build and own a marina. The
boat launches would be free,
and the city would make
money off the boat slips and
rents collected by marina
businesses.
This led to the sales pitch
for $2 million in federal grant
money. Black said the city did

with appropriations commit-

Sarasota families ha


by KidCare decision

State lawmakers have repeatedly changed
eligibility rules to hold down costs.
Local enrollment has dropped by more
than 45 percent during the last two years..


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

Plummeting enrollment
numbers demonstrate that
Florida lawmakers who
proudly tout their efforts to
protect school-age children
have deliberately undernin-
ed one of the most successful
programs ever devised to
provide low-cost health in-
surance for students.
In spring 2004, more than
363,000 public school stu-
dents throughout the state -
including almost 6,000 in
Sarasota County received
Florida KidCare coverage
through three federally spon-
sored insurance programs
that require an annual state
contribution.
Cost-cutting legislative de-
cisions have reduced the cur-
rent statewide total to about
220,000, dropped the number
of county participants down
to less than 3,600 and closed
many of the public outreach
offices that helped enroll
families.
"When funding was cut,
many communities decided
not to do outreach," said
Virginia Brockman, a Sara-
sota County public health
employee who attempts to
fill the void by fielding calls
from Charlotte County, Man-
atee County and St. Peters-
burg on a part-time basis.
"What upsets us is we
need outreach offices to re-
build the credibility of Florida
KidCare," she said. '"A lot of
children have been lost over


the last two years. We realize
a few probably shouldn't
have received coverage, but to
punish the children is unfor-
tunate."
To tighten eligibility crite-
ria, state lawmakers reduced
year-around enrollment in
the programs to two one-
month windows and signifi-
cantly increased the docu-
mentation families must pro-
vide to demonstrate com-
bined income and prove
financial need.
Gov. Jeb Bush referenced
lower Florida KidCare en-
rollment figures earlier this
year when he recommended
a $197 million cut in the
state's contribution, a mea-
sure he said was justified
because the state currently
budgets for too many un-
used slots.
There is some good news
for families who still want to
participate in KidCare. Last
year, lawmakers relented and
agreed to reinstate year-
around enrollment and pro-
gram officials recently estab-
lished an Internet Web site
(healthykids.org) to assist ap-
plicants.
"The challenge is to reach
the families that really need
these programs and were dis-
couraged when the enroll-
ment process became so diffi-
cult," Brockman said. "Many
of them don't have computer
access. I'm continuing to take
phone calls (at 861-2813)."
Most families who receive
KidCare coverage pay $20 a
month for all eligible chil-


irmed


is

dren. The insurance provides
comprehensive health care,
vision, hearing and partial
dental coverage. There are no
deductibles or exclusions for
pre-existing conditions.
"It's excellent coverage,"
Brockman said. "Families are
responsible for a $5 co-pay
when they visit doctors, a $5
co-pay for medications and
$10 co-pay if they have to
visit an emergency room.
Some pay more, and some
less, depending on their in-
comes."
Florida KidCare programs
are subsidized with a 71 per-
cent federal contribution
and 29 percent state contribu-
tion. They include Healthy-
Kids for students age 5-18;
MediKids for pre-schoolers
age 1-4; and Children's Med-
ical Services for special med-
ical needs.
Enrollment took a nose-
dive when lawmakers decid-
ed families who want cover-
age must submit pay stubs,
federal income tax returns,
W-2 forms and proof of un-
earned income for items such
as child support, Social Secur-
ity and veterans' benefits.
In addition to loading up
the application requirements,
program eligibility rules were
further beefed up to exclude
any family that is offered
health coverage through an
employer for less than 5 per-
cent of its combined earned
income.
Some lawmakers who sup-
ported tougher eligibility re-
quirements contended work-
ing parents who receive
health insurance from em-
ployers should sign their chil-
dren up as dependents, and
not attempt to save money
by enrolling them in less
expensive KidCare programs.


GCCFV awards $1.57 million


STAFF REPORT

The board of directors of
Gulf Coast Community Foun-
dation of Venice recently ap-
proved grants totaling more
than $1.57 million to improve
quality of life in communities
the foundation serves.
The majority of the grant
funds awarded will support
capital projects resulting in
new facilities to serve a range
of critical human service
needs. The foundation also
awarded nearly $240,000 to
support programs at several
local nonprofits.
"The grants approved by
our board are a wonderful
reflection of the foundation's
partnership with organiza-
tions throughout our com-
munity," said foundation
President and CEO Teri A.
Hansen. "These grant awards
will enhance the ability of
our nonprofit partners to
serve many age groups
across a wide geographic
area, both now and well into
the future."
The foundation's $375,000
grant to the city of North Port
will help pay for construction
of a Family Service Center
housing the city's Social Serv-
ices department as well as
several human service non-
profits that will lease space
there.
South County Family
YMCA will receive a grant of


$375,000 in
support of
phase two of .
its Building a ,
Strong Future .

for pool reno-
vation, renovations to the
existing building to accom-
modate on-site partnerships
with other nonprofits and
other improvements.
The board approved a
$175,000 grant to Loveland
Center to assist with con-
struction of a new Student
Alumni Center for Loveland's
older adult students with de-
velopmental disabilities.
Boys & Girls Clubs' first-
ever club in Venice is closer to
becoming a reality as Boys &
Girls Clubs of Sarasota County
was awarded a matching
grant 'of up to $175,000 to-
ward construction of a
32,000-square-foot facility.
Redeemer Lutheran
Church and Child Care Cen-
ter was awarded a $40,000
grant for a new outdoor ac-
tivity center for its child care
programs.
Program funding
The board also approved
grants to support programs at
five local nonprofit organiza-
tions.


Venice Little Theatre will
receive a $104,586 grant
over four years to expand
and improve its volunteer
program.
Sarasota County Openly
Plans for Excellence was
awarded a $50,000 grant to
support its primary activities
in the area of community
planning and engagement.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of
the Sun Coast will receive a
$35,000 grant to expand its
Decisions to Win mentoring
program for high school stu-
dents in South County.
The Englewood Inter-
agency Council was awarded
a $40,000 grant for planning
and preliminary design of a
new "one stop" building for
health and human services
in Englewood.
The Lemon Bay League
was awarded a $10,000
matching grant for preserva-
tion of scientific research con-
ducted in Lemon Bay by the
Bass Lab in the 1930s and '40s.
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice is the
largest community founda-
tion in Florida with assets of
more than $225 million.

State allowing Hepatitis C to run wild


here is a silent epidemic threatening
Floridians and, so far, the state has done
little to stop it.
Hepatitis C, a contagious, life-threatening
condition, is becoming the No. 1 health prob-
lem in not only the United States, but Florida
and this area, according to Dr. MarkAsperilla.
With more than 4 million cases in the U.S.
and 270,000 in Florida, the disease is spread-
ing so fast the medical community cannot
keep up with it.
There were 203 reported cases in Char-
lotte County in 2005 and 348 in Sarasota
County while only one was reported in
DeSoto County. Those numbers have steadi-
ly risen since statewide tracking began.
Asperilla and other doctors fear if some-
thing is not done about what is suddenly the
No. 1 disease eclipsing HIV-AIDS in new
cases reported each month that hundreds


of people will go untreated and the disease
could reach epidemic proportions.
Why has Hepatitis C grabbed the medical
spotlight?
First, it is indeed a truly silent disease.
People can go as long as 10 years without
showing symptoms.
Also, the disease is costly to treat so
costly that some insurance companies have
dropped clients stricken with the ailment.
Treatment can be as much as $30,000 a year
for the expensive drugs needed.
James Coburn, president of an area
Hepatitis C support group, traces the spread
of the disease to baby boomers who shared
needles or practiced sex in the wide-open
'60s and '70s, during the Vietnam War. Many
of those people carried the disease for years,
spreading it to others without even knowing
they were infected.


Another issue is the rapid spread of the
disease among immigrants some of whom
have little or no money and don't read or
speak good English.
Asperilla said the Legislature dedicated
$2.5 million in 1999 to tracking Hepatitis C
patients and increased that funding to $3.5
million recently. The money, however, is not
used to help cure people only for locating
them and keeping records of where the out-
breaks occur.
He says too many mid-level working peo-
ple have Hepatitis C and do not have insur-
ance to help them get well. Regionally, as
much as 25 percent of the workforce does not
have health insurance and while Medicaid
often helps the poor, these people have
nowhere to turn.
Asperilla believes lawmakers should use
more of this year's projected budget surplus


to treat people stricken with this disease that
eventually destroys a person's liver. He says
the treatment upfront is much less expensive
than $500,000 liver transplants or treatment
down the road.
One issue, he believes, is prejudice. The
idea that a person contracted the disease
through sex or drugs is a turn-off for politi-
cians who might help. However, even people
who don't use drugs or are promiscuous can
still be infected from people who have no
idea they are carriers.
We agree that more should be done to
attack this disease.
There are a number of areas that need an
infusion of cash in Florida mental health
care, education and roads are three big ones
- but if early treatment can slow down or
stop the spread of Hepatitis C, legislators
should commit to that.


May Day, mayday!

JOE BROWER



I was at The Home Depot
in South Venice the other day
to buy some "Eucalyptus
double-shredded" mulch;
however, to my annoyance,
there was none to be found.
The reason? The compa-
riy's production had been
down for three days, a result
of its largely "undocumented
immigrant" workforce having
walked off the job to instead
fill the streets of Fort Myers to
the tune of 75,000 strong,
demanding their self-invent-
ed "rights" as a reward for
being here illegally.
As of this writing, after a
couple of lame attempts at a
legislative fix, it looks like our
-esteemed leaders are leaning
toward the easy route: bow to
the protesters' will (and the
large business interests lob-
bying on their behalf), in
whole or in part.
Wow. We American citizens
have to try that sometime.
How about we hit the streets
by the thousands and protest
having to pay income taxes
next year? I'm sure the same
rules will apply we don't
like the law, so we'll just break
it, consider it our God-given
right and then get disruptive
when we're not catered to.
Surely the government will
understand. Or maybe not.
After all, somebody has to pay
the bills around here.
Immigrant workers, most-
ly Hispanic, are no longer an
uncommon sight here in
Sarasota County. You see
them every day, putting down
stone pavers for someone's
front patio, mowing lawns in
Bay Indies, toiling away on
many of the local road expan-
sion projects.
I went through theWendy's
drive-through on the bypass a
week ago, and the two work-
ers there were chatting back
and forth in Spanish.
One thing is certain: This
isn't your father's Venice any
more.
All the major papers, per-
haps longing to recreate their
"glory days" of the '60s civil
rights movement and based
on the pictures they print and
their page-one editorializing,
fully support these protests.
On April 12 the headlines
read, "Latinos: Rising Num-
bers, Rising Voices." Hmmm.
Problem is, those voices can't
speak English.
The day before that it was
"Immigrants Rally for Recog-


nition." Oh, we recognize
them all right, and the reac-
tion of most people is, "If
Mexico's so great, why are
these people here?" and
"Good lord, we've been invad-
ed."
Because that's what we
have here, folks a slow-
motion invasion, by numbers
without historical precedent,
of people who have no desire
to integrate into mainstream
American society. .
This is all expertly de-
scribed in "The Hispanic
Challenge," a powerful essay
in Foreign Policy, written two
years ago by political scientist
and author Samuel Hunting-
ton. The main danger, Hunt-
ington points out, is the one
attribute that "differentiates
Hispanic immigrants from all
others who have come to our
shores, legally or no: The
majority refuse to assimilate.
Instead, they "balkanize."
And when they chant, "Aqui
estamos, y no nos vamos!"
("We're here now, and we're
not leaving!"), they mean it.
Now these illegal workers
are planning to strike, and
conduct La Gran Marcha on
May 1st, "May Day," a long-
standing focus for demon-
strations by various "worker"
(i.e., socialist) groups, al-
though most of the partici-
pants probably don't know or
care much about that.
What these immigrants do
know is that a variety of
American businesses are go-
ing to suffer a bit, and the
average American consumer
is going to be suddenly run-
ning short on all kinds of
things like mulch, for ex-
ample. And what is available
will be more expensive. The
idea is that the general dis-
comfort level will be sufficient
to make Americans acquiesce
to their demands.
But how about this idea
instead: Get used to it.
Are we not Americans and,
as such, undaunted by hard-
ship? If we are truly a "nation
of laws," and we resolve as a
people to preserve our dis-
tinct culture and way of life,
there will be pain for all in-
volved, because fixing this
long-festering problem will
be neither quick nor easy.
Like a person who's been
addicted to heroin for 30
years, it's high time for the
United States to finally go
cold turkey, break our un-
healthy habit and get off the
dope once and for all.
It's that or "Aprenda el
espafiol hoy, evite la prisa
mafiana."
No more illegal immi-
grants means no more cut-
rate labor. So what? I'll take
the preservation of my coun-
try's laws and national identi-
ty over cheap lettuce and
other such self-serving, short-
term conveniences.
And I'll mow the lawn my-
self, thank you.


Many helped make fountain a reality


Editor:
Someone wrote a very gracious thank-you to me regarding
my involvement with the new children's fountain. I want to
clarify that I did donate my services as the general contractor,
but I did not fund the project.
My part in this project seems insignificant compared to
those who have worked so hard for many years to get this foun-
tain to where it is now, and those are the people who really
deserve the credit.
My goal was to not only see that the fountain was safe for the
kids, but to also give other local tradespeople and suppliers an
opportunity to give back to this community as well.
Many of our local tradespeople and suppliers did step up
with donations and helped to make this project a complete
success. I would like to take this opportunity to let them know
how much I appreciate their efforts.
I would also like to thank Venice MainStreet for giving me
the opportunity to be involved with the fountain, and for their
complete support while construction was under way, and the
many city of Venice employees who worked so hard to help
make this a great and rewarding project.
Your readers can donate to this project too, by contacting
Venice MainStreet and asking to purchase an engraved paver.
The engraved pavers cost $100, and they are placed around the
perimeter of the fountain to show your support for this won-
derful community project.
The grand opening will be announced soon, and I hope to
see you all there.

Harris represents
traditional values
Editor:
Mary Kay Ruppel's excel-
lent column, "Harris has
earned GOP endorsement,"
also proves Katherine Harris
has earned the respect and
votes of all Floridians in her
quest to be our senator.
She has a remarkable
record of public service in the
Florida Senate, as Florida's
Secretary of State and for two
terms as our representative in
the U.S. Congress. .
Harris' many accomplish-


ments in Congress include
the introduction of Carlie's
Law, passed in 2005 as the
Children's Safety Act, which
prohibits probation for any
sex offender who committed
a crime against a child.
Harris also authored the
American Dream Down-pay-
ment Act of 2003, helping
Americans achieve first-time
home ownership by assisting
with down-payment and
closing costs.
Harris supports HR 8 to
repeal the Death Tax, helping
keep family businesses and


farms within a family without
forcing them to sell to pay
estate taxes.
She obtained approval for
a national veterans cemetery
in the Sarasota County area.
She secured more than $75
million in crucial funding for
the 13th District including
improvements to our roads,
Alzheimer's research, the
Mote Marine Aquaculture
Project and the renovation of
the Robert Taylor Community
Center in Newtown.

LET 'EM HAVE IT!



Different people, same old story


Reminder. I've just read the Let'em Have It and I'm appalled
at "Doesn't belong," talking about the number of low-income
houses at Grove Terrace, that they should be eliminated com-
pletely. Let me remind people that the reason Grove Terrace is
there is because that's where the town of Venice put the black
people. That's where they put them because they thought it
was a dump, because they treated it like a dump, because it was
surrounded by commercial property. Now, all of a sudden, it's
valuable property and they want to get rid of the poor and put
some nice rich people in to bring some money into the city of
Venice. Let me remind you that this happened to the Indians.
We put them on reservations, on land that we thought was
worthless. And then when we discovered there was oil and coal
and gold, we drove them out.


Enough? The school sys-
tem already received tens of
millions of dollars from the
10-year sales tax and now in
today's paper, you said that
the sale of North Port lots will
raise millions of dollars for
our schools and then the ref-
erendum will bring in a quar-
ter billion for our school sys-
tem. When is enough
enough?
Every four years are we
going to be asked to give up
more money? What's the deal
here? They seem to be getting
a lot of money plus the state
also keeps increasing budgets
of education, so what's being
done to spend the money
wisely?
- Spreading lies. It's a shame
we have such a disrespectful
person like John Patten in our
community. Our Venice may-
or spoke the truth about Pat-
ten's vindictive attitude in
making false accusations
against our Venice city gov-
ernm ent.
Screw loose. I'm reading
my Gondolier Sun and I love
that cartoon from Neseman
about Harris. She does have a
loose screw in her head. She
thinks she's going to win with
all that money. I hope the
people really, really give it to
her.
Three is too much. I agree
100 percent with the caller
who prefers the paper only
twice a week. They listed five
reasons and these, are exdacut ..


my reasons too. But also
there's more to carry out on
trash collection day, most of it
I didn't read anyway. This
week there was a flier and
there were six identical sheets
with my paper.
Also, on page 11B on
March 22, there was a half-
page picture of the entrance
to the former Venice Army Air
Base. One third of the top was
nothing by clear sky. One
third of the bottom was most-
ly just plain cement. The cen-
ter third showing the actual
entrance cut down to about a
three by five or less would
have been enough. Also three
huge stories recently about
the local homeless were way
too much.
Please, less boring and
shorter stories and more local
news. I urge you to get the
truth from your readers by
putting a survey in the paper
and consider having the
responses returned to a will-
ing, unprejudiced well-
known group, then making


any necessary adjustments to
the content of your paper. It
could eliminate a lot of com-
ments I'm hearing lately, such
as, "I'm sick of the new Venice
Gondolier Sun three times a
week. I don't think I'm going
to renew my subscription."
Think about it.
Leave it. Here we go again
- charter changes. They
want to make the finance
director an employee of the
city manager. How much
money has been spent over
the last few years trying to get
the charter changed? Every
other year we vote on this -
ridiculous. Leave it the way it
is. If you don't like it, move.
Code violations. The old
circus arena at the airport still
has busted windows and
nobody has done a thing to
the building. Anybody else
had a building looking bad, it
would be cited by the code
enforcement. Why haven't
they cited the airport for the
Ringling arena?
Check drains. Come on,
city of Venice, this is ridicu-
lous. It hasn't rained in weeks
and we had one little shower
and Venice Avenue, between
the middle bridge and the
bypass, is flooding. The turn
lane by the swim store is a
couple inches deep and not
going anywhere. Drainage
needs to be checked before
the rainy season starts. This is
a hurricane evacuation route
but there's no way to get
through if the water isn't leav-
ing the road.

It seems like such a good
idea.
The government has gotten
into the business of admin-
istering prescription-drug
insurance plans through the
Medicare Modernization Act of
2003. But it turns out the gov-
ernment already buys some
prescription drugs ... for the
Veterans Administration.
Why not model the new
program after the older one,
reap the benefits of the com-
bined market clout and
achieve savings through uni-
formity? That's what many
lawmakers are asking.
Unfortunately, it doesn't
work this way. Drug compa-
nies make price concessions
to veterans they won't make
to even the largest prescrip-
tion benefit managers with
which they negotiate.
Under rules set by Con-
gress, to sell drugs to the VA
companies must offer each
drug at a price that "repre-
sents the same discount off a
drug's list price that the man-
ufacturer offers its most-
favored nonfederal customer
under comparable terms and
conditions."
The medication must be
offered "at a discount of at least
24 percent off (the) nonfederal
average manufacturer price.An
excess inflation rebate is also
required, equal to the percent-
age by which the price increase
for (the) drug has exceeded the
consumer price index in the
prior period."
The manufacturer must
make all of its drugs available

Schedule for any of its drugs
to be eligible for reimburse-
ment under the VA and De-
fense Department health sys-
tems, the Public Health
Service (including the Indian
Health Service), the Coast
Guard and the various state
Medicaid programs.
Why do drug companies
even bother? The VA repre-
sents only about 2 to 3 per-
cent of their market, so
they're not losing too much
money on the deal. The VA
also serves as a training
ground for new doctors, and
the sales allow drug compa-
nies to expose these new doc-
tors to their medicines.
The VA operates a closed
system, which means there is
little risk the drugs will be
resold. And drug makers want
to maintain a good relation-
ship with the government.
Obviously, none of these
factors applies to the Medicare
program. Even if they did, it
wouldn't be a good deal to
model Medicare after theVA.
For one thing, theVA offers
veterans fewer drugs about
93, compared to more than
130 for most PBMs. And the
drugs it does offer are not
exactly top of the line.
A study by Professor Frank
Lichtenberg of Columbia Uni-
versity found that the majority
of the VA formulary's drugs are
more than eight years old and
more than 40 percent are 16
years old or more.
Just l9percent fall prescrip-
tion drugs approved by the FDA
since 2000 are available to veter-
ans; only 38 percent approved
during the 1990s are.
In many cases, veterans
must try a drug that comes
close to the one they need
and prove that drug doesn't
work before they can get the
drug they truly need. And in
almost every case the VA
imposes an automatic one-
year hold on new medicines
while it "studies" the effects.
These are drugs approved
by the Food and DrugAdm-in-
i < ; i in


(


istration the most rigorous
testing regimen on Earth -
for use by all Americans.
Is this any way to treat our
veterans? Is it a system we
want to graft on to the whole
of Medicare?
More important in the big
picture, is this a way to save
money? Is it cheaper to force
the 41 million Americans who
are eligible for the Medicare
drug benefit to use medicines
that are approximately what
they need rather than specifi-
cally what they need in the
name of saving a few bucks by
buying in bulk?
Experts say these savings
come at the expense of the
patients we're trying to help.
Forcing patients to accept
lower-priced, less-effective
drugs can lead to higher total
drug spending because doc-
tors then need to prescribe
more drugs.
Beyond that, it could add
to total program costs by
leading to more hospitaliza-
tions and physician visits
related to using less-than-
optimal medications.
We hear a lot of half-truths
with regard to drug pricing.
California Bay Area Demo-
crats in Congress recently re-
leased a report that said that if
Medicare drugs could be pur-
chased through the VA system,
the government could reap
savings of up to 75 percent But
the study deliberately omitted
plans that allow patients to pay
a fixed, low price for all the
drugs they need.
It also didn't mention that
fewer drugs are available
through the VA system or that
drug companies simply can-
not afford to make those
drugs available at those prices
through the Medicare plan.
In other words, it's as my
grandmother always said: a
half-truth is a whole lie.

Venice Center of Surgical Excellence progressing


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Construction has begun
on the Venice Center of
Surgical Excellence at 8421
Pointe Loop Drive close to the
Jacaranda-Tamiami Trail in-
tersection.
It is the vision of future
health, care services by two
Venice physicians: Tariq and
Jaffer Khan believe this new
style of medicine offers a
move from the inpatient to
outpatient for most proce-
dures.
Located conveniently to
serve patients in Venice, Eng-
lewood and North Port, it is
planned to 2007.
Alternatively known as an
ambulatory surgical center, it
will provide maximum out-
patient surgery for proce-
dures currently done in a hos-


pital. According to Tariq
Khan, similar centers exist in
New Jersey and Sarasota, but
not in South County.
An approved Medicare
surgical facility with state-of-
the-art equipment on three
floors, the three-story, 6,800-
square-foot building will pro-
vide employment for 20 in
addition to physicians. Nurs-
es will be multi-trained to
assist with very special surgi-
cal services, and some doc-
tors will bring their own
teams.
On the first floor will be
two fully equipped operating
rooms, two endoscopy suites
for both Khans' casework,
pre-op and post-op recovery
suites, a business center and
nurses' quarters.
On the second floor will be
4,000 square feet of surgeons'
and administrative offices. The


third floor will house equip-
ment with storage space.
Outpatient gastro-enterol-
ogy procedures, endoscopies,
colonoscopies; ophthalmo-
logic procedures, cataract
removal and eye surgeries;
pain management, gynecolo-
gy, laparascopies, and joint
replacements will take place
within the facility.
'All procedures will be done
under painless conscious seda-
tion," said Tariq Khan. "It will
be a mini-hospital, where
patients do not stay."
The whole theme is educa-
tion first, treatment second,
and preventive medical pro-
grams to educate and benefit
this community will be
brought to this area.
Patients and the public will
visit the center to participate
in physician presentations.
Nutritionists will give talks.


There will be free cataract
screenings and pain manage-
ment programs, and there are
plans to open an inconti-
nence center.
Because everyone over the
age of 50 needs to have a
colonoscopy, the Khans are
thinking of using a CAT scan-
ner to do colonoscopy exami-
nations.
"Prevention is the best,"
said Jaffer Khan. "One colon-
oscopy finding cancer costs
around $450, compared to
one person undergoing can-
cer treatment with care cost-
ing $200,000."
Both physicians currently
use facilities at Venice Region-
al Medical Center, the VRMC

and such.
"Since traveling by bus is
very limited we are also plan-
ning to have two vans provid-
ing free transportation for
patients to and from the new
ASC," said Tariq Khan.
The Khan family has a long
medical history. Their physi-
cian grandfather was vice
president of a medical school


in Pakistan. Both Jaffer and
younger brother Tariq are
board-certified gastroenter-
ologists and family physicians
who practiced for several
years in New Jersey before
moving to Florida.
Their sister is a specialist in
infectious diseases; her hus-
band is a cardiologist; and
Jaffer Khan's daughter is
attending medical school.

Lips are sealed in Wasserman


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

Sometimes no news is the
news.
Especially when it involves
a federal investigation and a
prominent Venice doctor.
A white-collar crime probe
apparently continues into the
business affairs of Dr. Steven
J. Wasserman, a Venice der-
matologist.
On Dec. 8, 2005, agents
from the FBI and the IRS
seized boxes of records from
Wasserman's Venice Derma-
tology Institute, 1111 Avenida
Del Circo.
At the time, FBI spokes-
woman Carol Michalik con-
firmed the raid, saying only
that it was a "white-collar
crime" investigation and the
FBI was involved. She would
not. confirm that IRS agents
were involved.


However, local law en-
forcement officials who were
asked to assist the federal
agents said they recognized
IRS agents at the scene.
Michalik also would not
confirm that Wasserman was
the target of the investigation.
A short time after her first
interview about the case,
Michalik said that the search
warrant used in the Wasser-
man case was "sealed indefi-
.nitely."
On Thursday, Michalik
said "everything is still the
same" and could not offer any
new information.
Not even pinhole leaks
It is going on five months
since the Wasserman raid,
and the case is remarkable in
that it is as though the raid
never happened.
Local police officials shake
their heads when asked if


they've heard anything about
the Wasserman investigation.
Local attorneys, some of
whom are wired to officials in
the U.S. Department of
Justice and are familiar with
federal investigations, also
shake their heads.
One said earlier, "If the feds
don't want you to know noth-
in', you ain't gonna know
nothing. "
Another familiar with fed-
eral investigations said when
it was posited that the probe
may produce nothing, "Look,
if they go to the trouble and
expense of launching an
investigation, they already
gotcha'."
Wild speculation
Some on the outside have
speculated that the feds may
be looking at someone in
Wasserman's organization,
rather than Wasserman. They


suggest that Wasserman him-
self may have tipped the feds
that he suspected wrongdo-
ing by one or more of his peo-
ple.
"That would be damned
unlikely," one police official
said.
Meanwhile, Wasserman
continues to practice medi-
cine at his Venice and Engle-
wood offices.
Here's what could happen
It is unlikely, experts said,
that the investigation will die
on the vine. More likely is that
whatever evidence federal
agents have will be turned
over to a federal grand jury at
some point in time.
A grand jury is a group of
people selected and sworn in
by a court, just like jurors that
are chosen to serve on a trial
jury.
Unlike trial juries, grand


juries don't decide, if someone
is guilty of criminal charges
that have been brought
against them.
Grand juries listen to evi-
dence and decide if someone
should be charged with a
crime.
One-sided
The evidence is presented
to grand jurors by an assistant
U.S. attorney, and is per-
ceived as "one-sided" be-
cause defense attorneys are
not allowed to present their
evidence to grand jurors.
However, defense attor-
neys always fail when they try
to claim that a grand jury is
biased. Courts reject these
claims on the theory that all
the grand jury does is bring
charges, so even if a grand
jury is biased, the person they
charge is still presumed inno-
cent until proven guilty in a


trial court.
Grand juries do not con-
vene every day. Some con-
vene two days a week, some
convene only once a month.
A federal grand jury can sit for
up to 36 months, but general-
ly sits for much less time.
If ,the person is charged,
the grand jurors hand up an
""indictment" and the case
proceeds to a United States
District Court, a trial court.
A prosecutor may also
elect not to present evidence
to a grand jury.
He or she may instead
choose to charge the individ-
ual in an "information," a
document issued by the assis-
tant U.S. attorney that con-
tains the charges and evi-
dence.

It could have come a little
bit easier, but none of that
mattered after relief pitcher
Heather Laird struck out
Ashley Hanewich for the third
out in the seventh inning
Thursday night.
A celebration on the
mound confirmed it.
The Venice High girls soft-
ball team was Class 5A Dis-
trict 12 champion!
The Lady Indians held off
a couple of late rallies by
visiting Lakewood Ranch to
secure a 5-3 victory in the
final.
Venice, 26-2 and the top-
ranked team in Class 5A, will
now play host to a regional
quarterfinal at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
Ranch (18-10) lives on in
regional play but must hit the
road for its opener.
It appeared Venice might
have a little easier time against
Lakewood Ranch than the
night before in the semifinals
against Port Charlotte. The
Lady Indians scored three
times in the bottom of the
fifth to grab a 5-0 lead over
the Lady Mustangs.
But, as always, beating a
team for a third time in a
season is a tall task.
Ranch scored twice in the
sixth and once in the seventh
to make things interesting.
Venice went up 1-0 in the
second as Maureen Sandidge
walked, Megan Watson sin-
gled and Heather Laird had a
hit to plate Sandidge. It went
to 2-0 in the second on Kris-
ten Bailey's clutch RBI single.
The game stayed tight with
Venice pitcher Heather Boyts
and Ranch pitcher Ashley
Hanewich firing effectively.
Venice scored three times
in the fifth to seemingly take
control. Sandidge had a RBI
single. Another run scored on
an error and the third on a
groundout by Watson.
A couple of errors in the
sixth opened the door to allow
Ranch to score twice.
Venice had four errors on
the night.

Ranch threatened again in

VENICE 2, PORT CHAR-
LOTTE 1 Last year, Port
Charlotte stunned top-seed
and highly ranked Lakewood
Ranch in the einifinal round
of the district tournament.'
The favored Lady Mus-
tangs saw their season go
down the drain in a tough
1-0 loss to the Lady Pirates.
The stage was set for a
repeat Wednesday night on
the Reservation.
Top-seed Venice was bat-
tling fourth-seeded Port
Charlotte in a semifinal. -


Once again, the upstart
Lady Pirates threatened a
huge upset.
Thanks to the heroics of
Maureen Sandidge, Heather
Boyts and Heather Laird,
Venice lives on.
One swing of Sandidge's
bat proved to be the differ-
ence, as she delivered a walk-
off home run in the bottom
of the eighth. It was the
sophomore first baseman's
fourth home run of the sea-
son.
Boyts was a hero in her
own right. She fired eight
innings of no-hit ball, striking
out seven, to improve her
season record to 13-1.
Laird was an unsung hero
'both'at the plate and'n right
field.
At the plate, her tough at-
bat in the bottom of the
fourth inning resulted in a
sacrifice fly to deep center-
field that gave Venice a 1-0
lead.
Sandidge started the rally
with a high fly double that
landed behind second base.
Neither the centerfielder, left
fielder or shortstop could
zero in on the wind swept
ball.
Kristen Bailey, worked a
walk. Megan Watson swatted
Jessica Jobst's first delivery
into left field to load the
bases.
Then Laird strolled to the
plate. She quickly fell behind
0-2, but fouled out five
pitches to stay alive. Then
she belted a long fly to deep
center plating Sandidge.
Venice came close to scor-
ing an insurance run in the
bottom of the sixth. Laird


made a game-saving stab.
Crews had a game-tying sac-
rifice fly, but it could have
been a lot worse.
Boyts got a strikeout for
the third out.
Venice went down 1-2-3 in
the seventh and Port 1-2-3 in
the top of the eighth.
Hipple led off the bottom
of the eighth with a flyout to
left. Then up stepped: San-
didge. The righty swinger
delivered her bomb on a 1-1
pitch.
And Venice had advanced
to Thursday night's district
championship game against
Lakewood Ranch.
Port Charlotte saw its sea-
son end atj9-8. -

lined a double down the left
field line and tried to score
on an infield hit by Boyts.
Laird was nailed on a close
play.
Boyts sailed along, pro-
tecting the 1-0 lead until the
top of the seventh. It seemed
Murphy's Law would do the
Lady Indians in, as they jug-
gled the Lady Pirates into
contention.
The first two Lady Pirates
reached base when routine
balls were bobbled.
Catcher Watson made a
nice grab of a foul ball for the
first out, but the bases loaded
up on a slow roller to short
that Brittany Hipple was

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


There are two ways for the
Venice High baseball team to
look at Wednesday's 12-2 loss
to visiting Sarasota.
Of course, the Indians are
embarrassed to lose to any-
one by the 10-run mercy
rule.
But then on the flip side,
facing the best could actually
help out come district tourn-
ament time which in
Venice's case is next week.
"We want to always play
good teams," Indian coach
Craig Faulkner said. "We
don't like getting beat like
this. Sarasota is on fire.
They're very tough. We got
beat. We didn't give them the
game."
Sarasota, ranked No. 3 in
6A, improved its record to
20-4 with the win.
"When you face good
pitching, when you get to the
district tournament, it can
help," Faulkner added.
Venice faced perhaps the


best in the entire state in
southpaw Eric Ericson, who
always seems to go against
the Indians even though the
two teams are no longer dis-
trict rivals.
Ericson, who is University
of Miami bound, fired a two-
hitter over four innings.
Getting the starting nod
fot Venice was Jordan Lucas,
the preseason ace who was
making his first start in six
weeks. The junior pulled a rib
muscle and has been slowly
working his way back.
Lucas was on a 40-pitch
count, which translated into
two innings. Sarasota scored
five runs on four hits off the
junior right-hander. He fan-
ned four Sailors.
"He didn't pitch that bad,"
said Venice pitching coach
Jeff Callan. "They hit good
pitches."
One came in the first inn-
ing. Joey Rapp rocketed a
three-run homer to left to
set the tone.
Jeremie Cook and Jason
Kaufman also pitched for the


Indians.
Trailing 10-0, Venice scor-
ed its two runs in the bottom
of the third. Mike Ataman-
chuk singled and Cook fol-
lowed with a double. Atam-
anchuk scored when Cook
got into a rundown. The ball
was thrown away on the
same play, allowing Cook to
cross the plate.
Those were the only two
hits for Venice (12-11).
Venice will play another
ranked team Friday, as Tam-
pa Jesuit comes to town in a
7:30 p.m. start. Jesuit is rank-
ed No. 4 in 4A.
The Class 5A District 12
Tournament will be played
next week at G.T. Bray Park
in Bradenton. Venice will
open at 4 p.m. Tuesday
against Lakewood Ranch. If
the Indians win, they will
advance to the semifinals at
7:30 p.m. Wednesday against
the winner of the Manatee-
Southeast quarterfinal. The
championship game is
scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
Thursday.

associated with the sciatic nerve)
can be easily triggered by slips

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.

Knights Trail: All talk and no action


EDITOR'S NOTE: Due to copy
editor error, the end of this article
was omitted from the April 19 edi-
tion. It appears here in its entirety.

BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

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?

W hose impact fees?
Planning and Zoning Di-
rector Tom Slaughter said city
staff will meet May 3 with
county planners and proper-
ty 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 planning commission,
said Venice cannot count on
Sarasota County to properly
allocate impact fees for roads


within city limits. He was re-
ferring to how Venice impact
fees are being spent on pro-
jects 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 Jacaran-
da and U.S. 41 (in South Ven-
ice). 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, according to a J&J
Homes application to create a
special taxing district on the
Bella Venetia land to pay for
roads and utility lines.
Planning commissioner
Benny Weaver said that's a far
cry from an upscale RV and
resort campground. The for-
mer owners annexed the old
Stay 'N Play RV park into the
city three years ago with that
intention.
Even with the Knights Trail
widening and a traffic light at
Laurel Road, Weaver hasn't
been convinced the intersec-
tion can handle all of the
growth along Knights Trail.
"This development com-
pletely changes what's going
on up there," Weaver said.
"You say this is just one more
piece of the puzzle. I see this
as just one more piece of grid-
lock."
Boone emphasized that
Knights Trail will be extended


north and punch through the
Sarasota County landfill to
reach Clark Road, despite
going against current county
commissioner policy.
Boone, who has represent-
ed nearly every developer in
North Venice, said county
commissioners will support
the idea because it benefits
their efforts to build an inter-
state interchange at Central
Sarasota Parkway. Knights
Trail would become their
north-south connector road.
Even though the debate
hasn't begun, county com-
missioners already are pre-
paring for resident backlash.
They promised years ago to
not extended Knights Trail
Road through the county
landfill, in order to limit
development east of 1-75.
"We're going to get overrun
with e-mails and take a beat-
ing on this. They didn't want
that road punched through,"
commissioner Paul Mercier
said at the joint city council-
county commissioner meet-
ing April 6.

Learning takes flight at the Venice Rookery


BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR

"Look, there's a bride bird! I
see a bride bird!" cried a little
girl. Looking through a high-
powered spotting scope, the
excited girl watched a great
egret in its delicate breeding
plumage.
"Yes, it does remind you of
a bride," said Audubon mem-
ber Alena Capek. Capek was
one of several Audubon vol-
unteers who helped bring a
special birding program to
local second-graders.
Students from Cranberry
Elementary School visited the
Venice Rookery last week to
get a good look at nesting
birds. For several months, the
students had been preparing
for their field trip.
Every year, the Venice Au-
dubon Society offers the
birding program to second-
graders in North Port, Venice
and Englewood. And it's not
just a quick one-day dash to
the nesting grounds.
The three-part program
begin, at the school.
First, the students have a
binocular class and learn how
to look through the lenses
properly. They practice out-
side on the school grounds


to master the technique.
Next, second-graders learn
about birds, and have a slide
show about Florida birds they
can expect to see on their field
trip.
Finally, they visit the Ven-
ice Area Audubon Society
Rookery, off U.S. 41 behind
the Sarasota County Admin-
istration Building.
At the rookery, students
used binoculars to see the
birds and also looked through
spotting scopes for close-up
views of the nests.
The rookery is a popular
spot during the January-May
nesting season. On any given
day you can see avid birders
with their high-powered spot-
ting scopes and expensive
cameras watching every move
the birds on the little island
make.
The birds, it seems, don't
pay much attention to the
folks watching them; they are
busy building their nests,
tending to their eggs and
feeding their young.
All of this was a spectacle
that awed the second-graders
as they viewed nature up close
through high-powered lenses.
"Osprey flying at 10
o'clockld" called out one stu-
dent.


"This is pretty cool to see
all these birds spread out,"
said second-grader Matthew
Pribble, 7.
Another student observed,
"Bird at 12 o'clock it's pretty
much of a vulture."
"I see eggs! They're bluish
green," said second-grader
Milton Torres.
Audubon volunteer Steve
Freedman pointed out how
to identify birds by the way
they fly or the call they
make. Students also took a
walk around the lake to learn
about the habitat. Then they
had a chance to draw a pic-
ture of their favorite bird.
After visiting the rookery,
the students were taken to
either Shamrock Park to see
scrub jays and gopher tor-
toises or to Lemon Bay Park
where they could view an
eagle's nest.
Venice Audubon provides
this program .every year at
no charge to the schools.
The only cost is bus trans-
portation to the sites.
If you would like to volun-
teer, or want to learn more
about the programs Audubon
offers, call 496-8984.

Hoffman at: shoffman@

"Oh my God!" said Cranberry Elementary School student Ana Vargas, 7, left, to her friend, Emily
Fredrick, 7, as an egret flew past with a snake in its mouth at the Venice Area Audubon Society
Rookery.


An egret flies back to its nest of fledglings at the Venice Area Audubon Society Rookery. Herops,
"Three, no, four egrets," said Cranberry Elementary school student Mckinzie Lane while visiting egrets, anhingas and gallinues are commonly sighted at the rookery, which is open to the public
the Venice Area Audubon Society Rookery. from sunrise to sunset.

Artists of Venice shine


BY CHARLEEN JAEB
CORRESPONDENT

In Venice, we are surrounded by
art and artists.
Their talents astound us. When
we return to Cleveland, Ohio, each
summer, we reconnect with them.
To me Venice is an art mecca, a
hidden paradise for art lovers and
artists. In the short three months we
are here each winter, hardly a day
goes by that I don't talk to artists or
see the fruits of their labor. Many
Venice products I take back North
are items purchased at Venice's
many art and craft shows, art gal-
leries or artist's studios.
I've always noted the extraordi-
nary number of art galleries and art
shows in Venice, but in January of
last year it really hit me how many
artists flourish here, and that many
of them, like me, also found their
way to Venice from Cleveland.
The first thing I noticed upon
arrival were the brightly painted pigs
created by local artists as a fundrais-
er for the Venice Art Center. The col-
orful porkers dotted the landscape
of Venice. I took pictures of them all.
Like most Venetians, I loved them
and the idea that the Venice Art
Center and people in Venice would
profit from them.
The second January event hap-
pened as I was strolling the beach by
the South Jetty and discovered a
group of about 12 women painting
some very professional looking pic-
tures. Being an amateur photogra-
pher, I took pictures of them and
their projects. I learned they had
been friends for more than 20 years
and got together every Thursday
morning to paint for two hours and
to critique each other's work. Many
of the ladies are now professional
artists. Buoyed by confidence be-
cause of winning a first prize in the
Venice Photo Contest in 2004, I
stopped in at the Venice Gondolier
Sun office and asked if they would
be interested in an article with pic-
tures on the artists.
"Yes," said the paper's editor Bob
Mudge.
"Yes," said Features Editor Kim
Cool.
That was the start of a new career
in photojournalism five years after
my retirement as a business profes-
sor. I was even able to use my pig
portraits in a "pig quiz" article that
appeared on the pages of the paper's
Our Town section during Pig Year in
Venice.
The third event that January
occurred shortly after writing the
article about the artists.
We had a fun auction in our
condo. The item that went for the
highest bid was a watercolor paint-
ing by Mary Jane Park, a resident
whose home studio is on the top
floor of the San Marco Condo. I
couldn't wait to see her studio. Every
wall is covered with her oil and
watercolor paintings. Many more
have been sold in galleries. In addi-
tion to painting on canvas, she


COMING

SUNDAY


paints on furniture and sews. She
made an attractive quilt, beautiful
wrap-around skirts and a waist
purse with pockets, suitable for lady
golfers. She happens to be a golfer,
too. This month we had a residents'
tour of apartments in San Marco.
Park generously opened hers.
Park's story is as unique as that of
the artists I had met on the beach.
She has been coming to San Marco
for more than 30 years. Park was
born in Cincinnati and attended
Miami University of Ohio. After
graduation, Park was a home eco-
nomics teacher at a high school in
Durham, N.C., while her husband
was in medical school at Duke. At
her former college roommate's sug-
gestion, Park came to Venice follow-
ing the death of her husband. Her
roommate's father had built the San
Marco. Parks fell in love with the
town and the building, where she
now has the honor of being one of its
most senior residents.
She was not an artist when she
arrived, but her talent was discov-
ered and nurtured at San Marco by
Hilda Smith, a neighbor and an art
teacher. Park credits Smith with cri-
tiquing her work and encouraging
her to continue.
With an easel set up overlooking
Roberts Bay, Park continues to paint
almost daily and has filled the walls
of her apartment with still lifes, por-
traits, landscapes, seascapes and
other works.
The San Marco resident chooses
not to discuss age .or marital history,
saying only that she would like to be
referred to as a "Merry Widow." She
has two sons and a daughter. One is
a lawyer. The other once owned the
restaurant where Rosebud's now
stands. The daughter teaches ele-
mentary school in Cape Coral.
Park lives half the year here and
the other half in Paducah, Ky., home
of the National Quilting Museum.
On her walls is a plaque designating.
her the "Duchess of Paducah," an
honor she achieved by winning a
golf tournament. Her pep, enthusi-
asm and love of life constantly
amaze me. She golfs. She paints. She
parties. She plays shuffleboard and
promotes the Venice Shuffleboard
League. She was the originator of the
Bitter Ends Venice Women's Sailing
Squadron. Park is an excellent
bridge player. She has a creative
spirit and spunk, is independent
and fun.
The fourth January event that
increased my awareness of artists in
Venice was one involving the inter-
nationally known photographer,
Clyde Butcher. We get many visitors
who arrive armed with ideas of
where they want to visit. A former
colleague from Cuyahoga Com-
munity College had the Clyde
Butcher Venice Gallery and Studio
on the top of the list.
We visited Butcher's gallery that
January. Ever since, I have taken
guests there or suggested it to them.
It surprised me how many perma-
nent residents and snowbirds were

not familiar with this landscape
photographer, who is known for his
enormous black and white pho-
tographs, which feature great detail,
high contrast and fantastic cloud
formations. Many of his pictures are
taken in swamps and along the
seashores of Florida, although he
has photographed landscapes all
over the United States, Cuba and in
Czechoslovakia. Many famous .peo-
ple, such as Queen Elizabeth, Bert
Reynolds and Chris Everett own his
original photographs. One of my
favorites is a portrait of him stand-
ing waist deep in swamp water with
his camera on a tripod beside him.
His style is similar to famed black
and white photographer Ansel
Adams. In many people's opinion
(including mine) Butcher's work is
considered superior to that of
Adams. When this was mentioned to
him he modestly commented that it
was because today we have much
better photographic equipment.
Last week I visited his gallery
(with guests from Ohio, naturally)
and was thrilled to finally meet him
for the first time. He was in town for


his annual open house. I was doubly
pleased when he signed a copy of
one of his books for me. His daugh-
ter, Jackie, runs the Venice gallery at
237Warfield Ave. in Venice. It is open
Monday-Friday, 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
For more information, call 486-
0811. Butcher himself, when not
outside photographing nature,
spends most of his time at his home,
other studio and the Big Cypress
Gallery located in the town of
Ochopee.
. He invited me to join him on his
annual Muck-About Swamp Walk
on Labor Day weekend. Last year,
Jimmy Carter and his family joined
him on a swamp walk. Carter chose
the "deep walk" much to the dismay
of the Secret Service people guard-
ing them. Carter loved it.
Having visited his gallery and
talked to him, I probably won't go on
his swamp walk, but I'm looking for-
ward to viewing the award-winning
PBS half-hour documentary on
Butcher, "Visions of Florida," as well
as an award-winning video featur-
ing Butcher entitled "Big Cypress
Preserve: Jewel of the Everglades."


One of the dilemmas in writing
this article was the choice of artists
to include when I've been im-
pressed by so many. The next one is
the one I met just before completing
the article.
The meeting occurred at the
annual Venice Area Quilters' Guild
Show. By arriving late, I found out
who won the Best of Show Quilt and
the Viewer's Best Choice Award as
soon as I got there. Both awards
went to Jean Freestone, who moved
to Osprey from New Jersey in
September. She designed and quilt-
ed "A Tale of Two Plates, Oriental
Springtime." The quilt also took first
place in the Accomplished Quilter
Bed Quilt category. It had a different
pattern on each side and showed an
oriental plate featuring Chinese
family crests surrounded with birds
using material from the Orient. It
had an asymmetrical design slightly
off center, which drew your eyes to
its focal point.
Freestone told me it took her
three years to complete, including

Flood insurance


program explained


ELLEN HILLSTROM


Well, it was explained but
not necessarily fully under-
stood.
At the last SVCA meeting,
Desiree Companion, com-
munity rating system coordi-
nator for Sarasota County,
gave us a fine PowerPoint pre-
sentation on the new Na-
tional Flood Insurance Pro-
gram modified in 1994 and
administered now through
the Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency.
At the meeting also was
Nina Heath ofAAAAuto Club
South, who pointed out
examples of the types of flood
insurance and disaster assis-
tance available in our home-
owner insurance policies.
In support of NFIP FEMA
has undertaken a massive
effort of flood hazard identifi-
cation and mapping to pro-
duce boundary and rate


maps. Property owners in
Sarasota County are able to
insure against flood losses
and protect against much of
the devastating financial loss
resulting from flood disasters.
We were advised to contact
our current insurance carriers
to find what zones we are in
on the map, what the cover-
age includes and the annual
premiums.
At the SVCA office, there
are copies of a homeowners
guide and a copy of the pre-
sentation. She directed every-
one to obtain more informa-
tion at scgov.net/floodinfor-
mation, floodsmart.gov,
fema.gov and msc.fema.gov.
Nina Heath chimed in to
explain additional flood
insurance products such as a
"first protector" program that
pays your mortgage payment
in addition to other benefits if
you cannot live in your home
due to a flood. She showed
examples of preferred flood
insurance for different zones
and what the coverage and
annual premium would be.
She handed out a nice
flood and disaster protection
kit, copies of which may be
picked up at the SVCA office.
It was a lot to absorb, and
the questions and answers

A movable feat: Cookie House rolls


BY GAVIN OFF
ASSISTANT ENGLEWOOD EDITOR

After sitting comfortably
on a waterfront lot for at least
79 years, the historic Cookie
House emerged from the
shadow of the surrounding
palm trees on its way to a new
home.
Resting on I-beams and a
flatbed trailer, movers RE
Johnson and Son used a
front-end loader and chain to
pull the Cookie House from
the New Point Comfort Road
property.
Exiting the narrow, sandy
driveway proved to be a
tedious task, as the building's
roof brushed back pine tree
branches and workers used
shovels to flatten sandy
banks.
The house entered New
Point Comfort Road, sand-
wiched between onlookers
and Charlotte County Sher-
iff's Office traffic units.
A minute later, the flatbed
was hooked to a pickup and
gingerly towed east on
Lemon Bay Road and south
on Placida Road as the cara-
van of cars followed.
Shortly thereafter it com-
pleted the 1.1-mile trip to
Cedar Point Environmental
Park, its new home.
"The biggest bumps were
the reflectors in the road,"
said Brett Johnson, who drove
the pickup. "We didn't need it
shaking any."
Workers moved the Cookie
House, a relic of the former
Bass Biological Laboratory
and Zoological Research Sup-
ply Co., to make way for a
proposed 21-townhouse de-
velopment on New Point
Comfort Road.
'This is big'
Prior to the move, Johnson
and Son spent an entire day
digging up the 30-ton house
and another day bracing it.
Crews braced both the

Environmental Park on Placida F

inside and outside with
wooden boards. The cement
base, already cracked from
years in the elements, was
bound with metal wraps.
Hydraulic jacks then lifted
it onto the flatbed trailer.
"You hope it does well, but
we weren't going to make any
early predictions," Johnson
said. "All those cracks that are
there were there."'
The roughly 12-foot by 20-
foot former laboratory will sit
in the park's front parking lot
some 60 days while a Char-
lotte County contractor pre-
pares a site closer to the park's
visitor center.
The site sits among the
trees just to the left of the
park's winding entrance.
Larry Beymer, capital pro-
jects coordinator for the
county, said the contractor
would first add fill dirt to the
location before pouring the
concrete foundation.
Bobbi Rodgers, who over-


sees Cedar Point Park, said
she was happy to see the
Cookie House at the park,
adding that the park would
include historical informa-
tion about the building.
"This is big," Rodgers said.
"It finally made it."
Mote before Mote
John Foster Bass Jr. began
the Bass laboratory in 1931,
making it the first marine lab
on Florida's mainland.
Bass died in 1939, and the
laboratory continued until
1944. It laid the groundwork
for Cape Haze Marine Labor-
atory in the 1950s. The Cape
Haze Marine Laboratory
moved to Sarasota in 1960
and served as the precursor
for Mote Marine Laboratory.
The Cookie House was the
final building on the property
linking it to its marine labora-
tory past.
The Bass family sold the
6.5-acre property to Triple


Diamond Enterprises, which
resold the land in early 2005
to Waterford Companies out
ofVenice for about $4 million.
Waterford is developing
the townhouses.
'Alittle piece ofEnglewood
history was saved today.
because Englewood resident
David Arp stepped forward
and paid the entire bill for
moving the Cookie House
and is also footing the bill for
the site preparation," said
Englewood historian Diana
Harris.
Harris has a photograph of
the Cookie House dating back
to 1927.
Costs included $2,000 to
prepare for the move, $15,000
for. the- move and, $15,000-
$18,000 for the concrete
foundation.
But there were still those
who didn't want to see the
house leave.

... Ye have not, because ye ask not'


DONNA MARTONFI
.. uJ .l (' i'


You would think that after
having spent more than 25
years serving God and read-
ing in His word what we are
supposed to do, that some
things would come just natu-
rally and automatically to me.
Not always. I hang my head in
shame and admit to you, in
print yet, that sometimes I
never even THINK to pray.
Oh, don't get me wrong, I
pray all the time, every day,
about everything, but I'm
talking about those times
when some unexpected crisis
catches me by surprise and
instead of taking it to God
immediately, I end up run-
ning around like a chicken
with my head cut off. One
such recent example, which I
believe you will enjoy hearing
about, happened last month,
just three days before I was to
appear on the live call-in TV
program that I host periodi-
cally. We were having Sunday
dinner with friends when I
realized to my horror that the
very hard and sharp object in
my mouth was nothing that
the chef had prepared. Upon
close examination I discov-
ered it was the entire top of a


tooth from a very visible loca-
tion in my mouth. My only
consolation was that I hadn't
swallow it and also that in the
center of this tooth was a
metal post, indicating that
root canal had been per-
formed at some point, so I
was pretty confident that I
was not going to have any
pain.
At least not any actual
physical pain. Although see-
ing myself with a gap near the
front of my mouth, ,where a
tooth needed to be, just days
before appearing before the
entire nation, certainly
caused me some very strong
psychological trauma. So nat-
urally, I considered this a
most earth-shattering cata-
strophe that needed to be rec-
tified immediately. Unfor-
tunately, all the dental clinics
and dentists that I contacted
did not seem to share the
same opinion. I couldn't get
an appointment for weeks
even though I explained that
the sharp stub in my mouth
was cutting my tongue and I
feared I could end up with
blood trickling from my
mouth, on camera, live, for
the whole world to see, be-
cause I would be talking non-
stop for three solid hours.
Finally, I reluctantly resol-
ved to call a dentist who had
wanted more than $35,000 to
fix my husband's teeth about
10 years ago, because he at
least had our name on file.
Since we could buy two auto-
mobiles for that kind of
money we never went near
him again but at this moment
I threw caution to the wind
and called THERE. The earli-


est appointment they could
give me was for the Monday
AFTER the TV program,
which was not going to help
my vanity but I realized this
situation could develop into
an infection, so I agreed.
Then, realizing I had just
booked an appointment with
the most expensive dentist on
the entire west coast of Flo-
rida, it finally dawned on me
to pray and ask God to rebuke
the devourer (Malachi 3:11)
from needlessly robbing me
of my financial resources.
Especially of not robbing me
the month before I needed
extra cash to travel to Canada.
Plus, my son was about to get
married AND we were
expecting a new grandbaby.
Every single dollar was cate-
gorically assigned.
To make a very long story
short, God's supernatural
provision started to unfold as
I looked out the window and
noticed my neighbor's furni-
ture strewn all over her front
lawn. Curiosity getting the
best of me, I sauntered over
there and found a couple of
people, whom I knew, ins-
talling carpet in her lanai.
While chit-chatting with
them I mentioned how I had
unsuccessfully spent the
entire morning trying to find
a dentist who could help me
right away, to which they
replied, "We have an excel-
lent dentist who is right
around the corner. Call
him!" Qnly trouble was, nei-
ther of them could remem-
ber his name.
This was a completely
God-ordained memory lapse
because it compelled me to


drive there, tooth in hand,
instead of just picking up the
phone and calling, because I
would have been told that the
dentist was not in, but at
home with a bad back. There-
fore, as I was explaining my
predicament to the recep-
tionist, his assistant came out
and said she could see me
right then and there and try to
do something for me.
For the next 20 minutes
she took X-rays; cleaned the
shaft; tried to position the
tooth back in place; filed it
down a bit; had me grind
down on the purple paper;
tried fitting it again; filed it
down a little more; used more
purple paper; did more grind-
ing; fitted it again; filed it
some more until it fit; then
dried the shaft; and finally
cemented the tooth in place.
As she handed me the tube of
cement to take home with me
for future use, she said, "Since
I don't know if this job is going
to last one day, one month or
forever, I'm not even going to
charge you!"
Oh, to think how many
times I needlessly feared and
fretted that I would not have
enough money for some-
thing, instead of simply pray-
ing and trusting God, who is
more than able to meet every
need. Shame on me.

Passionate about Jesus


SUN PHOTO BY
COURTNEY LINN




During a song
in the play,
Jesus teaches
his followers.


BY COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER

The First Baptist Church of
Venice put on its annual
Passion Play filled with music,
song and spirituality for Jesus
Christ.
People lined up outside
the door to be the first inside
this grand church complete
with balcony seats. Whole
families participated in this
event as audience members
and as actors.
Narrated by an older
Nicodemus, the story was an
outline of Jesus' life, featuring
many highlights of the New
Testament. The play show-
cased Jesus' birth, young
adulthood, ministry, persecu-
tion, betrayal, crucifixion and
rebirth. Each chapter of Jesus'
life featured a spiritual song.
Alongside- this story of
Christ's life was another care-
fully woven into the play.
Nicodemus and Joseph of
Aramathea played integral
roles. A great deal of the play
focused on the conversion of
these two men as they came
to believe in Jesus.
The crucifixion scene was
as representational as it can
be performed on a stage. The
sound effects were grue-
somely realistic, and they
added to the drama of the


event, giving the audience a
true sense of the pain being
endured. This was the most
eye-grabbing scene in the
whole play.
There were many out-
standing vocal talents within
the play, which made it even
more of a delight to watch.
The many townspeople were
enthusiastic in every song,
and each person was unique
and stood out from one
another. Little Angela Potier
haunted the audience with
her solo that began the song,
"Call to Worship." During
"More Than Just a Man," Joe
Wright and Greg McClure
sang so passionately, it's a
wonder that these two men
aren't singing professionally.
Cheryl Pickels. brought tears
to the eyes of the audience
with her beautiful soprano
voice singing, "Beautiful
Hands."
The sets were very elabo-
rate, and they were reminis-
cent of an actual theater
rather than a pulpit. It was
decorated with vines and
flowers, and it spread out past
both sides of the stage. On the
far end of stage left, they had a
realistic set up of Da Vinci's
"The Last Supper," which was
dimly lit, creating shadows
and depth of Christ and his
disciples.


The costumes were incred-
ible. They ranged from the
lowliest peasant to the
Sanhedrin priests to Roman
guards complete with breast
plates.
At the end of the play, the
actors were given a standing
ovation, and Pastor Hodge led
everyone in a prayer, wishing
everyone could come to know
Jesus.
The play lacked some of
the story of how Jesus started
his ministry. And, Judas was
brushed over and portrayed
as a vile man who would do
anything for money. While
Judas has never been por-
trayed as a good man, he was
more complex than being
displayed merely as a man
who would do anything for
money. These two items
could have been clarified for
the audience.
Overall, the play was edu-
cational, but the focus was
more on the spiritual. The
play was a clear definition of
what the life of Christ means
to most Christians. It was
something that anyone who
wants to learn more about
Jesus could enjoy.

Donna Foley Mabry will
be signing copies of her first
novel, "The Last Two Aces in
Las Vegas," 2-5 p.m., April 22,
at Circle Books, on St.
Armands Circle, in Sarasota.
The first in a series of myster-
ies featuring Alexandra
Merritt, the entertainment
director of the Independence
Casino, and Alberto Minnelli,
the owner, the story is woven
around Alex's contacts with
gamblers, entertainers and all
the assorted characters found
in Vegas. There is a bit of
romance to sweeten the deal
and some murders as well. It's
a good read, one that I
enjoyed thoroughly on a
recent weekend.

GUEST WRITER


It has heart and soul (and
sole). What "Kinky Boots"
lacks is kick.
The story of a dying British
shoe factory that reboots
itself as a maker of fetish
footwear for transvestites,
the movie rolls along pleas-
antly enough on the strength
of fine performances from
Chiwetel Ejiofor and Joel
Edgerton, who form a solid
mismatched-buddy duo.
Yet it feels like a retread of
what's become a formulaic
British subgenre where dis-
pirited folks break out of the
box with an outrageous
plan to boost their financial
fortunes and self-esteem.
First came "The Full Mon-
ty," with out-of-work blue-
collar employees baring it all
as male strippers. Then we
had "Calendar Girls," about

older women posing nude to
heat up sales of their charity
calendar ("Kinky Boots" co-
writer Tim Firth and two of
the movie's producers also
worked on "Calendar Girls").
Just recently, there was
the U.S. debut of "On a Clear
Day," the tale of a laid-off
shipyard worker whose at-
tempt to swim the English
Channel buoys his spirits and
rallies his alienated kinfolk.
"Kinky Boots" trods rather
shallowly in the footsteps of
those better films. British TV
director Julian Jarrold, in his
big-screen debut, and
screenwriters Firth and Geoff
Deane stick to the same old
recipe with this tale based on
the true story of a Brit who
inherited his family's failing
shoe company and retooled
it as a stiletto-heeled special-
ty outfit.
After his father's death,

known as the young version
of Luke Skywalker's Uncle
Owen in the last two "Star
Wars" movies) finds himself
the reluctant proprietor of a
shoe factory whose durable
but bland loafers no longer
have a market.
With the company bleed-
ing money, Charlie has to
do the unthinkable: Begin
laying off his father's devoted
workers.
The filmmakers awkward-
ly maneuver Charlie into a
chance encounter with fe-
male impersonator Lola
(Ejiofor), who just happens
to be suffering from yet
another pair of women's
boots with high heels unable
to support his manly weight.
You practically see the
light bulb going on over
Charlie's head, and from
there, "Kinky Boots" plays
out with unswerving pre-
dictability, shuffling along at


a poky pace.
Charlie enlists Lola as
consultant on a line of exotic
footwear for men who have a
hankering to walk a mile in
women's shoes. The incredu-
lous factory workers initially
resist, but you know where
you're heading in this feel-
good equation.
Edgerton has a subdued
hangdog quality that makes
him a nice straight man for
the flamboyant Ejiofor ("In-
side Man," "Dirty Pretty'
Things") who's previously
been seen mostly in re-
strained roles. but here
struts his stuff with comic
abandon.
Earnest as the actors are,
the filmmakers have not
crafted the sort of brisk gait
the movie needs. "Kinky
Boots" stutter-steps its mild
way to a bland conclusion
you'll see coming from a
long way off.

American Dreamz
After four years, the president of the
U.S. holes up in his room and begins
reading the newspaper. In an effort to
get him out of the White House, his
chief of staff sets him up as a guest
judge on America's favorite reality com-
petition. Along with the sharky British
host, the leader of the free world judges
both a conniving steel magnolia and a
recent immigrant who's actually a terror-

friends. Christine (Catherine Keener)

HOROSCOPE April 21-27


ARIES (March 21-April
19). Denying your
passion doesn't make
it go away, but it does make
the window of opportunity
shrink down to a size that
you would have to squeeze
through. Admit what you
want, and this window
becomes a sliding-glass
door.

TAURUS (April 20-May
20). Your attitude is
more important than
what actually happens it's
more important than the
facts. Attitude has the power
to turn a sterile environment
into a place where love can
grow.

GEMINI (May 21-June
21). Something is
missing. Art and
glamour need to be in your
world on a daily basis for
,you to feel you're living
the life you were meant to
live. Find ways to add these
elements.

^.: CANCER (June 22-July
22), Your weird point
of view on today's
events makes other people
laugh even when you're not
trying to be funny. As far as
your friends are concerned,
you're the gift that keeps
giving.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).
The planets prod you
to commit your
random act of kindness
immediately. "Now" is never
too soon, by the way, because
you never know when
"tomorrow" is too late.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22). You're realizing
your impact on
your home life is greater
than you normally take
into consideration. In fact,
your very example presents
an overwhelming respons-, -
S ability. --


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
23). Usually, choose
not to believe hearsay,
but now, you sense there is
real truth to be learned. Your
intuition is correct, though you
would have a hard time con-
vincing that realist in your life
of it. Follow your guide, but
don't tell anyone.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
21). Your mental sharp-
ness is required for a
job to go well. So take a nap if
you must or have an afternoon
coffee. Tonight, you'll be the
hero everyone toasts.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21). Normally,
you wouldn't think
that spending one-on-one time
with yourself is the most fun a
person can have, but today,
you're your own best compa-
ny. Another Sagittarius is your
second-best choice.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
poan.19). The word
i "potential" is a frus-
trating one for you, because
you always seethe unfilled
part of potential in yourself
and others. You're wonderful
as you are. What you've done
is important. Acknowledge
yourself.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18). Work is a lot
of fun today. Your
signmate Oprah Winfrey says
you know you're on the road
to success if you would do
your job and not be paid for it.
Dating tip for tonight Fill awk-
ward moments with kisses.

.%, 'PISCES (Feb. 19-March
71 20). Your partners
jd need to listen to you
more closely and more often.
You can help them do this by
sweetly demanding their full
attention also, by putting
your communication in note
form, even if it's only for.your -.
own cltat ~. ...

Confronted by health zealots out to
ban tobacco and an opportunistic sen-
ator (William H. Macy) who wants to
put poison labels on cigarette packs,


Nick goes on a PR offensive, spinning
away the'dangers of cigarettes on TV
talk shows and enlisting a Hollywood
super-agent (Rob Lowe) to promote
smoking in movies. Nick's newfound
notoriety attracts the attention of both
tobacco's head honcho (Robert Duvall)
and an investigative reporter for an
influential Washington daily (Katie
Holmes). Nick says he is just doing
what it takes to pay the mortgage, but
he begins to think about how his work
makes him look in the eyes of his
young son Joey (Cameron Bright).

John Bass grew up on the
New Point Comfort Road
property and said he remem-
bered scientists visiting the
lab and how he and his
friends used to collect speci-
mens like octopus, snails and
pelicans from the gulf and
Lemon Bay.
It's the property's history
and picturesque views of
Gottfried Creek that make
Bass believe there's a better
use for the land than simply a
housing development.

Grandma's hand-

me-down health tips


SUZY COHEN, R.PH.
COLUMNIST
DEAR READERS: These
are some of the more enter-
taining responses that you
sent to me when I asked you
for Granny's folk remedies.
Thank you for the tremen-
dous response; sadly, I can
only print a handful. Don't
write to me if you bruise
your upper lip or trip on a
golf ball these are your
tips, not mine!
-WD40 for arthritis! I
keep a can on my nightstand.
When arthritis wakes me up
throbbing, I just spray each
aching joint and rub it in for
15 seconds. Within a minute
or two the throbbing stops
and I'm back asleep before
I've fully woke up. It really
works! C.C., St. Petersburg,
Fla.
-You may be surprised
to know that my podiatrist
recommended Vicks for toe-
nail fungus!! It is no folk
remedy it certainly worked
for me. R.W, Ocala, Fla.
Here's an instant reme-
dy for charley horses in one's
calves. If one occurs at night,
and you don't want to hop
out of bed and walk it out,
pinch your philtrum, that
darling dimple just under
your nose. Hold it tight for
10 to 15 seconds and, voila,
the cramp is gone! T.S.,
Oceanside, N.Y.
My mom used to boil a
sliced lemon (juice, skin and
water) down to about a cup.
Then she would add a little
more lemon and honey. Sip
it to bring down a fever or
stop coughing. J.J.,
Watertown, N.Y.
-A golf ball rolled vigor-


ously under the affected
foot will relieve the pain of
plantar fasciitis and eventu-
ally eliminate heel spurs.
This proved effective for my
friends and me. Small cost:
one golf ball! J.M.,
Gastonia, N.C.
If you notice itching on
your lip, immediately scrub
the area with soap and warm
water several times per hour.
Should this fail to nip it in
the bud and a sore appears,
scrub it until the skin breaks
(yes!) and apply hydrogen
peroxide three or four times
the first hour, then taper off.
- E.P, Gainesville, Fla.
Before entering an
airplane, I put a drop of
white iodine below each
nostril. This kills the airborne
bacteria and keeps me from
getting sick from the recircu-
lated, germ-filled air. O.E,
Marco Island, Fla.
I grew up during the
'40s and '50s and when we
developed the "itch," there
was always pure natural
sulfur, a pale yellow sub-
stance that could be mixed
in cream and applied .to the
skin. It had a strong, foul
odor so everyone knew you
had the itch, but it worked
great. And here's one more:
Grandma Taylor once put red
hot coals from the wood
heater on my foot to draw
poison from a rusty nail
puncture. I'm still around.
(Yes, but do you have all 10
toes?)- G.T., Muscle Shoals,
Ala.
Chicken soup is uni-
versally known as Jewish
penicillin. No religious bias
intended, but Jewish cooks
(especially my wife) make the
best soup. The fresh garlic in
it helps cure infection and
is truly beyond everyone's
understanding. D.B.,
Boynton Beach, Fla.

Medicare covers cost

ARTISTS from Page. B
the year it took to obtain the
fabric. Freestone did not start
quilting until she was 50 years
old, her daughters were
grown and she was nearing
retirement from teaching
kindergarten and first grade.
She enjoyed the challenge
of simplifying difficult con-
cepts so the primary grade
students could grasp them.
Her mother was a home eco-
nomics teacher and her
father was an architect.
Her grandfather traveled
often to China, exposing her
to that culture when she was
still a child who needed
things for "Show and Tell."
The family background,
knowledge of sewing and
familiarity with Asian art
combined led her to quilting.
Although fairly new to quilt-
ing, she said she entered 15
quilt shows and won a ribbon
in all but one.
The artists already men-
tioned have no known con-


nection to Cleveland, but
there are many talented Ve-
netians with such ties. Some I
met there and others here.
While attending an art
show in Lakewood, Ohio, I
was favorably impressed by
the nature photographs of
Leslie Greenberg. In convers-
ing with him, I mentioned
they reminded me of Venice.
He said his mother, Amy
Haffer, lived in Venice.
He showed me a photo-
graph, which won him a blue
ribbon that was taken at the
Rookery.
While attending the art
show in Venice the first week
in March, I admired the cop-
per engraving plaques of
cities and colleges around the
country.
The artist, Roger Coast,
resides in North Olmsted,
some 10 miles from where I
live in the Cleveland area.
When I took visitors
through the Venice Art Center
(another stop on my Venice
city tours), the Fibre Arts 2006


was in process. Coincident-
ally, the woman demonstrat-
ing spinning, Laura Arena,
grew up in Parma, Ohio, and
attended Cuyahoga Com-
munity College where my
guests and I taught.
The people described so
far create art with hand and
eye.
I have not touched on the
artists with the ability to make
you laugh or cry on stage or
provide the music that fills
the air in theaters, parks and
restaurants in Venice. They
live here, too.
Venice is a haven for art-
ists.
We Venetians are fortunate
to be able to satisfy our crav-
ing for culture and art without
ever leaving town.
Better yet, we can visit a
different art show, artist or
gallery each day and mostly
without charge unless we
find something that we can-
not live without such as the
Clyde Butcher book I pur-
chased.


S1% Mortgage.-F act or FT. i

Right or Wrong 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.

Courtyard home listed in Gulf Manor subdivision


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


When built in 1999, the
house at 16 Gulf Manor Drive
was a news item because of
set-back issues brought by a
neighbor, which forced a re-
working of the design by the
builder. The result is prob-
ably a better home than the
one envisioned and one that
is an asset to its street and
to Venice.
The courtyard-style home
has three bedrooms and


bathrooms, large living and
dining rooms, family room,
office, laundry room and
lanai plus an enclosed court-
yard with pool and spa.
Decorated with inviting
shades of blue and white,
the Mediterannean Revival-
inspired design features a
floor plan that is open for
casual living but with sepa-
rate spaces such as the din-
,ing room, which lends itself
to a more formal life-style
when that is desired.
Gulf Manor is a unique


community of upscale
homes with private beach
access for its residents and a
private U-shaped road wholly
within the community.
Built by the Collingwood
Construction firm, the house
has many upgrades, includ-
ing a flat tile roof, extensive
tile flooring and custom
kitchen and bathroom layout
and cabinets.
Listing Realtor is Joe Hay-
dn of Preferred Properties of
Venice.
He will hold a three-day


t p4


Wood trim accents the kitchen's all white
counters, which match the white tile floor. The caged spa and pool area is in a courtyardarea
The floor tiles were installed on the diago- off the master suite and the main living area of
nal, making the space appear larger. the home. It features an al fresco dining area

under roof just off the kitchen.


SUN PHOTOS BY KIM COOL

Stately palms shade the front entrance to this home at the entrance to Gulf Manor.


Pale blue hues provide a tranquil air to the living room and
coordinate with the pool that is within view of the sitting
area.


open house at the home:
Friday and Saturday, April
21 and 22, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and
Sunday, April 23, noon-3 p.m.
Haydn said that his office
may have two other open
houses that weekend in the
area. Call him for additional
information.
Priced at $899,000, the
house can be seen at other
times by appointment. Call
