School board OKs longer school days


STAFF REPORT

Sarasota County Public
Schools opening and closing
times for ,the 2006-2007
school year were approved at
today's School Board meet-
ing. The new schedule reflects
the extra 30 minutes of
instruction that \ill be added
to the school day.
In developing the sched-
ule, the district made an at-
tempt to adhere to three prin-
ciples:
Incorporate minimal.
changes to the current school
hours.
Add 30 minutes to the
school day with the least dis-
ruption to parents, students
and staff.
Consider pre-school and


after-school arrangements
and activities.
The changes put most of
the district's schools on a
three-tiered system: 7:30
a.m.-2:15 p.m., 8:30 a.m.-3:15
p.m. or 9:30 a.m.-4:15 p.m.
This schedule allows the dis-
trict to maximize resources
mo.t efficiently, particularly
in transportation.
The 7:30 a.m. time slot is
allocated to high schools,
which have traditionally
started at this time. All high
schools will dismiss at 2:15
p.m., with the exception of
Cyesis and Riverview High
School, whose closing times
will be 2:30 p.m.
Riverview is implementing
flexible block scheduling next
year and requested an addi-


tional 15 minutes to
plish it.

April ended, meteorolo-
gists say, without measurable
rainfall in Charlotte County.
Only 0.01 inch fell in Fort
Myers. Only 0.10 inch in Sara-
sota. Arcadia caught some
inland showers in April, mea-
suring 0.42 inch.,
Not nearly enough. We're
bone dry.
The agencies responsible
for declaring a drought say we
aren't in one. Yet: On a U.S.
Geological Survey map of the
United States, most of Florida
(excepting only the northeast
comer where Jacksonville is
located) is listed as "abnor-
mally dry."
A seasonal outlook from
NOAA shows Florida will
" impro\ e" in months ahead.
That's likely, since Florida's
rainy season usually begins
the second week in June. And
hurricane season begins June

,Complicating matters this
Near isa La Niha in thePacific.
La Nifia is a tongue of cold
vaier ner: thei Eqrainr. !'S
corollary, El Nifio, brings wet
springs and few hurricanes.
La Nifia is believed to cause
dry springs and more hurri-
canes.
Blame La Nifia for drying
us out.
Below normal
Just how dry can be seen in
levels measured along the
Peace River, from which
Charlotte County and parts of
Sarasota and DeSoto counties


draw their drinking water. At
the State Road 70 measuring
station, the river has dipped
into a critically low zone, as
recorded by the USGS.
After the only heavy rain
dris year in early February
- the river level rose, but it's
been all downhill since.
Sandy banks, many being
sifted for fossils, are exposed
up and down the river. Canoe
travel on this most popular
canoeing river in the state
now might require portage in
places. Swimmers walk in the
middle of the river.
The water level could rise
10 feet along the entire river
and the Peace would still
remain within its banks.
The Southwest Florida
Water Management District,
popularly known as Swift-
mud, keeps track of stream
flow rates for rivers like the
Peace. Swiftmud reported
Friday that the flow is so weak
that in 95 years of every cen-
tury, more water would be
moving downriver.
' Every river in this area is
significantly below normal.
Underground
Blame lack of rainfall, since
the rivers drain watersheds
that must be recharged from
Florida's average 53 inches of
rainfall each year. No rain, no
runoff. No runoff, low stream
flow.
Deep below the surface,
the aquifers are drying up, as
well. They aren't critical yet,
thanks to a very wet 2005, but

Good morning, Gondolier
Sun subscriber,
JOHN HOGAN:


Vandals used cement
sewer pipes laid along the
Center Road widening project
to express their sentiments
about Monday's nationwide
boycott by illegal immigrants.
"Fire Mexican," "Boycott
Mexico" and "Hire American"
was spray painted -on the
pipes along with hands mak-
ing an obscene salute.
"This is one of those unfor-
tunate things," Sarasota
County spokeswoman Susan
Walsh said. "Vandals take this
opportunity to express their
opinion."
Walsh said the project con-
tractor noticed the graffiti
early Tuesday morning.
"He turned the pipes
around to obscure the graffi-
ti," she said. "The pipes will be
buried anyway and the graffi-
ti will be obscured for all time,
so no further action is
planned by us."
Walsh said she does not
have a date when the pipes
will be buried.
"The sooner the better,"
she said. "The project will go
on for another nine months
or so."
One observer driving by


the area reported seeing
police talking to a man with a
can of spray paint. However,
the report could not be con-
firmed by the Sarasota
County Sheriffs Office.
Why?
Some of the nation's esti-
mated 12 million illegal
immigrants staged boycotts
of businesses and schools
yesterday. The boycott was
designed to show the Amer-
ican people how vital the ille-
gals are to the nation's econo-
my.
The protesters opposed.
the deportation of illegals and
stricter immigration policies
proposed by some in Con-
gress.
While no exact numbers
are available, about 300,000
protesters demonstrated in
cities such as Los Angeles and
Chicago. More than half of the
1,147 construction workers
on projects at Dulles
International Airport did not
show up, according to an air-
port spokeswoman.
Tampa, Tallahassee and
Sarasota were three Florida
cities that reported demon-
strations.
There were no demonstra-
tions in Venice. Venice em-

Norma Martin: Af ig hter f or the community


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Norma Martin has seen a
lot of changes in Osprey in the
60 years she has lived in the
community, and sold real
estate throughout the area.
"I used to be able to sell a
lot of land 50 by 125 feet for
$100." she recalled. "I could
sell 100 of them today, if I
could find any."
But it has been more than
buying and selling homes in
Osprey and the neighboring
Vamo section, just northwest
of the unincorporated former
fishing village, that has been
taking place. She has lived on
5 acres overlooking the Intra-
coastal Waterway at the end
of Vamo Drive for more than
55 years.
Martin became familiar
with Osprey residents while
presiding over the Osprey
School PTA. The school was
closed by Sarasota County,
and now serves as an admin-
istrative building at Historic
Spanish Point.
"It wasn't easy earning a
living as a fisherman then. If
you didn't catch something,
your family might not have
had a real supper that eve-
ning," she recalled. "Those
parents were devoted to our
school and our pupils, their
kids."
She knows many of them,
now parents and still living in
Osprey.
Families of fishermen were
poor 45 and 50 years ago,
according to Martin.
"Half the kids didn't have
shoes. I managed to get a
store owner on Main Street in
Sarasota to provide some for
our pupils," she remembered.
"Not only did he give them
the shoes, he also came all the
way to Osprey to fit them."
Her home on Vamo Drive
-was-the site of the"Origipal
V',amo Lodge, an inn built ti
'dit 19204 by Xtwxo couples who
'were developing the neigh-
borhood. Natives of Virginia
and Missouri, they bused
people from those states, and
put them up in -the lodge
while they looked at property.
Their two states gave the
Vamo name to the communi-
ty.
A four-room, one-story
house sold for $12,000 to
$14,000 in 1923. When the
housing bubble burst in 1927,
the two couples went home.
"They lost everything,"
said Martin. "You could buy a
house for as little as $1,000.
Just last month, one of them,
on my street, without a garage
or a driveway, sold for
$750,000!"
When she arrived in Sara-
sota with an ailing husband
and two young sons just after
WorldWar II, jobs were scarce.
It took a while for her hus-
band, Jack, who's now de-
ceased, to find a job. She was
hired by the Sarasota Cham-
ber of Commerce to welcome
newcomers to the area.
"I must have called on
3,000 people in just a few
years," she said. "I found I so
liked meeting people that real
estate seemed a natural for
Jack and me to get into."
They clicked, and she is
still clicking. With an enthusi-
asm more common to some-
one considerably younger,
she described her most recent
property listing.

"I just picked up an exclu-
sive in the Bay Acres neigh-
borhood in Osprey. Imagine, I
got it when the family of the
owner, who had just died,
opened his will. It said, 'Let
Norma handle the sale.' How
about that!" she said, with
obvious pride.
Martin in 1976 was elected
president of the Women's
Council of the Florida Asso-
ciation of Realtors. During her
term, she was honored by six
Florida cities, which gave her
ceremonial keys to their
cities. They adorn her office
walls.
The association honored
her again three years ago for'
50 years of practice as a
Realtor, and still going. She
shows no signs of slowing
down at the age of "39, and
that's all you'll get otit of me,"
she said. An observant neigh-
bor suggested that she is in
her mid-80s.
Counting election to the
Honors Edition of Executives
and Professional Women Real

month, Martin has been se-
nwl


elected by a half-dozen Who's
Who publications as an out-
standing Realtor. The walls of
the small office in her home
are crowded with the plaques
that signify her success.
She currently serves as a
member of the Osprey Re-,
vitalization Committee, and
has for years promoted
"smart growth" for the com-
munity. Judith Johnson, com-
mittee chair, cited Martin's
"vigorous resistance" against
developers seeking to build
high-rise condominiums on
the waterfront.
"More than anyone in Os-
prey, Norma has been a fight-
er for the community," said
Johnson. "It takes hiring ex-
pensive lawyers to fight those
battles, and few of us can
afford to fight big developers,
including Norma. But she did
that just a few years ago. She
lost one fight, but helped
Osprey ward off two other
developers who wanted to
build higher than the resi-
dents have set for limits.
"I wish we could clone
Norma."

Sea turtle experts struggle to keep nest counts stable


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

One of nature's annual
wonders began to unfold on
May 1 when thousands of sea
turtles .start to return to the
warm beach sand of Sarasota
County's barrier islands and
create nests for eggs that
hatch, if they survive summer
storms, predatory animals
and careless people.
County natural resources
officials, Mote Marine La-
boratory scientists and hun-
dreds of volunteers will
mark the nests and attempt
to protect them, but the vast
majority of hatchling turtles
will not prevail against long
odds and grow to adulthood
in the sea.
"We want our nest num-
bers to stabilize with no fur-
ther declines," said Kenya
Leonard, an.environmental
specialist who manages the
county's sea turtle program.
"The Gulf of Mexico is a major
loggerhead turtle rookery, but
our numbers are down over
the last decade."
County officials have sys-
tematically counted nests
since 1979. The highest num-
ber recorded was 3,502 in
1995, but in recent years the
total has dropped to 2,063 in
2004 and 2,107 last year.
Many factors contribute to
the number of nests.
"We've worked hard with
our residents to reduce light-
ing along the shore," Leonard
said, "but are still struggling
with some Florida Power and
Light open-bottom and drop-
globe lights. Rather than
blackouts, we are encourag-
ing property owners to have
safe conditions."
If apartment managers are
willing to cooperate and par-
ticipate in educational pro-
grams, the county will pay to
replace outdated security
,lights that disorient baby tur-'
tles and lead them toward
parking lots and roads rather
than the shoreline.
Lines are sinkers
While turtle protection
advocates attempt to educate
the community about com-
mon sense measures, they
also realize many other fac-
tors contribute to the survival
of leatherback, loggerhead
and other endangered sea
turtles that return every year
to lay eggs.
Tony Tucker, Ph.D., is a
Mote scientist who works
with local volunteers and
educates them about such
things as the danger posed by
commercial fishermen who
attach hundreds of hooks to
long lines that stretch for
miles, and inadvertently
catch turtles.
"There are deep long lines
and shallow long lines," he
said. "The greatest danger
comes from shallow lines in
50 meters or less of water.
There are 40 nations that
allow long-line fishing, and a
study recently published in
Nature Magazine indicates
the threat."
While Tucker concedes the
numbers are "global" and
"debatable," the report con-
cludes long lines with about
3.8 million hooks are in
oceans and other sea waters
every day, which could
account for more than a quar-
ter million turtle deaths a
year.
"Juvenile turtles that swim
away from our Gulf of Mexico
shores may not become
adults and return for 15 to 30
years," he explained. "Our lit-
tle loggerheads go to the other
side of the Atlantic Ocean,
where they can be caught as
teenagers on long lines off
Spain or Portugal."
Unfurnished
While there is long-line
commercial fishing off the
coast of Southwest Florida,
most of it is in deep water -
below 50 meters, where
grouper and tuna feed along
the bottom.


Most of the shallow long-
line fishing in the gulf occurs
farther north.
"I'm sure our long lines
have an impact on turtles,"
said Bell Fish Company Man-


ager Karen Bell, "but what's
frustrating to me is develop-
ment and pollution along the
coast. I believe that's the
greatest impact on sea turtles.
We have never purposely
tried to catch them."
The Bell Fish Company
has operated out of historic


Cortez Village in Manatee
County for decades.
Karen Bell has served on
the Gulf of Mexico Fisheries
Council, a federal advisory
organization, for six years,
and has consulted with state
agencies.
"Less than 20 percent of


Sarasota Bay remains unde-
veloped," she said. "I've seen
coastal development huge
development take place.
All those lights. I've talked to
captains who have worked
gulf waters for 40 years. They
don't catch many turtles."
While scientists from


many nations attempt to ad-
dress the larger threat of com-
mercial fishing, communities
such as Sarasota County chip
away at the local level. In
2004, the county beefed up its
rules on security lighting by
adding a prohibition against
overnight beach furniture.

School board use of workshops questioned


Untelevised sessions and super short meetings
draw complaints about school board meetings.


BY GREGGILES.
STAFF WRITER

Has the Sarasota County
School Board has become so
efficient with its meetings
that the public interest isn't
being served as well as it
should be?
That's the conclusion of a
handful of school board can-
didates who've started to
complain about how the
school board conducts its
business..
Board members hold two
regular monthly meetings.
About nine years ago they
began having an informal
workshop in between meet-
ings designed to be conversa-
tions with top district admin-
istrators. Issues of lesser
importance are discussed at a
morning session, while more
critical issues are discussed in
the afternoon workshop.
In 2003, the board agreed
to televise the afternoon
workshops, but morning ses-
sions still aren't shown. They
could be, since the district has
its own TV production studio,
but they never have been,
partly due to the administra-
tion's claim it's too expensive.
Now, members of the pub-
lic are complaining the un-
televised workshops have be-
come a way for board mem-
bers to avoid public debate
on potentially controversial
items.
A recent untelevised ses-
sion agenda included a new
plan on controversial school
start times; administrative
plans to ensure board mem-
bers get high-speed Internet
service and file cabinets in
their homes; and draft poli-
cies that would restrict mem-
bers of the public from partic-
ipating in workshops unless
iinvited or from holding plac-
tards during a regular meeting.
The latter was in to a re-
sponse to parent Kim Wilk-


inson's last appearance before
the board, when she held a
poster of an aborted fetus
throughout the meeting to
protest a district policy that
allows Planned Parenthood
into some high school class-
rooms.
The televised afternoon
workshop included a review
of preliminary data from a
teacher survey on high school
reforms; a draft policy re-
quired by the federal govern-
ment on health and wellness;
and a presentation by an
energy efficiency consultant
the district plans to hire.
Behind the scenes
It's a complaint that's been
around for years, and the key
reason the board began tele-
vising a portion of the work-
shops back in 2003.
Past chair Kathy Kleinlein,
who instituted the televised
workshops, dismissed the
accusation that board mem-
bers are trying to somehow
hide their activities, pointing
out that two or three reporters
attend every workshop. She
also noted few members of
the public ever take the time
to attend the meetings.
Kleinlein and current
board chair Carol Todd de-
fend the board's decision not
to televise the morning work-
shops.
"Sometimes we tackle
some pretty inane stuff, like
rules regarding backpacks or
trying to figure out if there is
something we can ,do to fix
something at a particular
school. I can't imagine people
would be interested in some
of the morning issues we dis-
cuss," Kleinlein said. "The
idea was to televise the im-
portant issues in the after-
noon because this is very
important work and should
be done in the public eye."
Todd said things haven't
changed much since the


workshops were first tele-
vised.
"It's difficult to foresee how
many people might come to a
board workshop. At times
none come. Other times only
a handful show up," she said.
"We try to accommodate the
public."
Cramped quarters
The April 11 morning
workshop was held in a room
approximately 12 feet by 14
feet, accommodating the en-
tire board and three Landings
administrators around a con-
ference table. A workshop the
preceding month was held in
an even smaller room.
Along one side of the room
were five chairs available to
the public. Three were taken
up by reporters; two by school
board candidates.
It may be an efficient use of
space, but at least one person
thinks it's taking the "public"
out of public education.
"I am curious to know why
this workshop was held in an
office so small that if one
more person had attended
they would have most proba-
bly had to be seed in the
hall," wrote Tammy St. Mary,
who's been attending meet-
ings regularly.
St. Mary is a school board
candidate in District 1 vying
for board chair Carol Todd's
seat.
"Why was the meeting
held in that room when there
were numerous other op-
tions?" she asked, in a sharply
worded e-mail to the school
board and superintendent.
"I find it incredulous that
board chambers is not uti-
lized for all meetings, not only
for space but so the meetings
can be televised," she said.
Improvements made
Just this month Todd made


a change in the afternoon
workshop surroundings to
improve quality. Weeks earlier
she caught a portion of a
workshop on television and
found the production quality
subpar.
"We've had trouble with
using the microphones. They
.might pick up one person's
voice well, but you could
hardly hear the person next to
them. It was awful," Todd
said.
Televised afternoon work-
shops are now held right from
the dais in board chambers.
"What bothers me about
the way the workshops have
been handled is I think it has
been calculated to make it
uncomfortable for the pub-
lic," said Lisa Glenn, another
board candidate from District
1.
She finds it difficult to at-
tend the workshops because
they're held during 9-5 work-
ing hours.
"I think all the meetings
should be televised in cham-
bers," she said. "The board
has this thing about commu-
nication. If you want to foster
better communication with
the community, then make it
easy for them" to see the
board at work.
"So many school decisions
appear to be made by staff
and rubber stamped by the
board. It's basically a formali-
ty. (It appears that) decisions
have been made with little or
no venue for public input.
That needs to change," Glenn
said.
Shirley Brown, a former
legislator who is seeking the
District 4 school board seat,
agrees with Glenn.
"Everything seems to be so
staff driven, without much
real active input from the
board. Perhaps I'm unfairly
comparing it to the work we

did in the Legislature, where
we told the staff what action
we wanted done," Brown
said. "I think too much of
their work is done in closed
door workshop settings that
do not lend themselves to
public scrutiny."
Brown is also dissatisfied
with the board's regular meet-
ings "where they take every-
thing up in one consent agen-
da with no discussion." She
wants to see improved tele-
vised coverage of board meet-
ings and workshops, similar
to that of Sarasota County.
Broadcasts compared
Sarasota County and Sara-
sota County School Board
both have their own TV stu-
dios, but vary greatly in the
way they cover governance
issues.
The county's Access 19
cable TV station carries 67
hours of government meeting
coverage out of 122 hours
each week. That amounts to
55 percent of air time. County
commission meetings, which
last all day over two days, are
covered live from beginning
to end.
Other meetings covered
include the county planning
commission, Tourism and
Economic Development
Board, Water Alliance, Long-
boat Key Commission, South-
west Florida Water Manage-
ment District meetings, joint
meetings with the city of
Venice council and council's
meetings, city of Sarasota
Planning Board and North
Port City Commission meet-
ings.
Sarasota County School
Board's Channel 20, is on the
air 24/7, with many hours of
original programming, and
many repeat showings. But it
doesn't even list school board
meetings or workshops on its


program schedule, partly
because they're too short.
Board meetings that last
only 15 minutes often aren't
aired at all, according to
Leanne McIntire, Education
Channel 20 manager.
Meetings that last longer
are taped and aired twice.
Ditto for afternoon board
workshops. Rarely does the
coverage of school board
meetings amount to more
thah six hours per week on
Channel 20, none of it live.
That's about 3.5 percent of
governance meeting coverage
compared to Channel 19's 55
percent.
Instead, Sarasota County
School Board produces "Eye
on Education," a half-hour TV
magazine on current issues
throughout the county.
The consent agenda
School board chambers at
The Landings can seat more
than 150 people, and are
lined with cameras, but pro-
ceedings usually last only
minutes.'
It's not unusual for the flag
salute, Pledge of Allegiance
and "moments of pride" por-
tion of the meeting to outlast
voting and discussion on
other substantive issues.
The typical regular meet-
ing lasts 20 minutes: 10 min-
utes to reach the consent
agenda, a few minutes for
public comment when there
is any, a few more for one or
two new-business items and
board comments, and then
it's meeting adjourned.
It's partly due to the effi-
ciency of the consent agenda,
which the board can use to
pass dozens of items with a
single vote, typically things
such as approval of minutes,
personnel reports, agree-

Hurricanes: Much goes into decision to stay or go


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Money, work and family
are the main factors deter-
mining whether people evac-
uate when a hurricane threat-
ens.
This information is not
surprising, but it does give a
clearer understanding about
why some people stay no
matter the threat. And it high-
lights the challenge faced by
public officials trying to get
people to go when they need
to, experts at the 28th Na-


tional Hurricane Conference
said recently.
Betty Morrow of Florida
International University said
the decision to leave is a com-
plex one.
If one person may have to
work, Morrow said, in nearly
every case the person stays.
And the family stays.
"This needs to be ad-
dressed by a better commu-
nication between emergency
managers and the private
sector," she said.
People who have nowhere
to go, or no plan, are also like-


ly to stay home.
Lisa Harrington of Kansas
State University went with a
team to Southeast Louisiana
after Hurricane Katrina and
found that, invariably, higher
income or higher education
directly related to people's
willingness to evacuate.
She also found that while
people consider their pets
when planning to evacuate,
pets do not prevent people
from leaving.
"This is not surprising,"
Harrington said. "They just
take them with them. Some


people did stay, but there
were usually other factors."
Most people will leave dur-
ing the day, 'so that they will
make it to wherever they plan
to go before dark.
If a storm threatens on the
weekend, people will take the
extra time to prepare. Storms
that threaten during the
weekday often delay people
from evacuating.
Morrow said people track
hurricanes very closely, most-
ly through the local media.
"The more people are pre-
pared and aware, the more


likely they are to stay at home
trying to (outguess) the
storm," she said. "The prob-
lem with sudden intensifica-
tion or changes in direction,
like Hurricane Charley, is
people will be caught off
guard."
Michael Lindell of Texas
A&M University said most
people tend to take three and
a half hours from the time
they decide to leave until they
actually hit the road.
The average time on the
road during the evacuation is
7.85 hours, Lindell said. Many


people tend to leave long be-
fore the evacuation orders are
given and some even before
warnings are issued.
This helps spread out the
wave of people in the road.
"That is likely to be differ-
ent for storms that change
later in their track like Char-
ley," Lindell said.
He found that people who
have been through storms in
the past have a high tendency
to evacuate. Such factors took
place after Charley, when

DRY from Pagel A


the Floridan aquifer, from
which Venice, Punta Gorda,
Englewood and Arcadia -
plus many owners of wells -
draw drinking water, has
dropped from a surplus of
water earlier this year to a
below-normal level as April
ends.
Last year this time, the
aquifer water level was 8.47
feet above what we should
expect. This year, it is 1.29 feet
below where it should be. It
dropped almost two feet in
April, according to Swiftmud.
Statewide, 10 million Flor-
idians depend on groundwa-
ter for drinking water. Half of
those Floridians drink water
that comes from the Floridan
aquifer. In all, we use 7.5 bil-
lion gallons a day now, double
that of 1960.
The lingering spring dry-
ness we're about 5 inches
in rainfall deficit is making
agriculture more difficult, but
certainly not impossible.
Irrigation is a simple fact of
life this time of year, the
DeSoto agricultural extension
'agent's office said.
That's especially true for
watermelons that, when ripe,
will be 92 percent water.
With citrus the biggest
agricultural user of irrigation
water, Florida's cash crops
need more water each day


than all the state's people do.
Farmers do what they
must. In groves aridi fields
throughout the farming areas
east of the coast, spray mis-
ters run until about 10 a.m.,
some resuming late in the
day.
Population up, rain down
As surely as everyone wish-
es this water problem were
short-term and recent, it is
neither, according to Swift-
mud.
If the last 30 years are com-
pared to the previous 30, then
total rainfall on Florida has
decreased an average of 5
inches a year. During that
time, Swiftmud notes, urban
areas doubled and phosphate
mining increased water usage
to three times its 1972 level.
One theory is that by creat-
ing a concrete jungle along
the coast, thunderstorm pat-
terns have been altered. Not
only is less rain falling during
the wet season, but it's falling
in different places.
Water from shallow wells is
harder to come by, Swiftmud
notes, and the level where
water can be obtained is now
5 times deeper than it was
about 30 years ago, as mea-
sured by wells east pf
Sarasota. In some areas, salt-
water intrusion is a threat.

Mineralization is a concern.
And as groundwater de-
clines, low river flows have
"been observed disappearing

bed" of the Peace River near
Fort Meade.
Kissengen Spring near
Bartow was an attraction of

1900s, but it ceased flowing in
1950. Swiftmud says too
much groundwater is being


pumped in the area.
Just north of Swiftmud's
jurisdiction, a sinkhole re-
cently opened. These usually
occur during periods of
drought.

The future might require
drastic actions. Swiftmud has
designated parts of all of eight
counties as a "Water-Use
Caution Area." Charlotte, De-


Soto and Sarasota counties
are in that area. Hydrologists
say they are certain more
water has been removed from
the aquifer in this area than
has been recharged. The re-
sult is saltwater creeping far-
ther inland and up in the
groundwater table.
' This threatens "the long-
term availability of fresh wat-
er from the aquifer," Swift-
mud says. .


Swiftmud concludes that
the challenge for Floridians is
to find 400 million more gal-
lons of drinking water every
day. That will be the need by
2020. And the water manage-
ment group says not to look
for ground or surface water
supplies to meet that level of
need.

Special needs create unique hurricane challenges


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

People with special needs
do not want to be passive
receivers of help, they want to
be part of the solution to hur-
ricane preparedness and re-
sponse.
This was the message of
Daniel Sutherland of the
Office of Civil Rights and Civil
Liberties within the U.S.
Department of Homeland
Security provided during the
28th Annual National Hurri-
cane Conference.
Sutherland is the chair-
man of the Interagency Co-
ordinating Council on
Emergency Preparedness and
Individuals with Disabilities.
It's his job to find ways to deal
with complex and unique
issue of helping people with
disabilities.


"The needs and talents of
people with disabilities must
be more effectively integrated
throughout the emergency
management process," he
said. "This is not a niche is-
sue. We are responsible to
ensure that our fellow citizens
with disabilities are as safe
and secure in their communi-
ties as individuals without
disabilities."
Those with disabilities
have a tremendous amount
to offer because they bring a
unique blend of energy, expe-
rience, ideas and determina-
tion to these issue, Suther-
land said.
He suggests that people
with disabilities be part of the
planning process, because
they would know the needs
better.
The coordinating council
was created in 2004 and is-


sued two reports.
When Hurricane Katrina
hit, his office was inundated
with urgent e-mails and
phone calls from people
needing immediate help.
Among the first major
issues: people were separated
from their wheelchairs, hear-
ing aids, crutches and walk-
ers, Sutherland said.
He said linking disaster
planning to nursing homes,
hospitals and others who are
at risk needs to be a priority
for everyone.
"We are making recom-
mendations to change FEMA
to better address the disabili-
ty community," Sutherland'
said. "Everyone needs to have
a plan for dealing with people
who are at risk."
' The council is looking at all
50 states to create some
guidelines for the National


Disaster Management Plan.
With its large elderly popu-
lation, Sutherland said, Flor-
ida is in better shape across
the board to deal with the
issue, but he admits the num-
bers could overwhelm the
system.
Getting help from within
the disabled community is a
logical way to help emer-
gency planning.
The National Organization
on Disability has created an
interactive map of disability
resources for states and local-
ities across the country at
nop.org.
There are many reports on
the impacts of those with spe-
cial needs following a num-
ber of disasters, but, Suther-
land said, "It's time now to
stop writing reports and take
action."
He cited a survey, that


reported 21.3 percent of peo-
ple in New Orleans were cate-
gorized as disabled before
Katrina roughly 250,000
people.
According to a survey, 22
percent of the people in the
city didn't leave because they
were physically unable to.
Another 23 percent said that
they had to take care of some-
one who was unable to leave.
"They want to identify
solutions that will make the
Katrina experience an an-
cient memory," he conclud-
ed, admitting there are no
easy answers but many
resources out there.
The coordinating council
has a Web site to help as well,
at disabilitypreparedness.gov.

Experience misleading when judging hurricanes


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

There was a time not very
long ago when it was believed
the United States was too
advanced and sophisticated
to experience a truly cata-
strophic hurricane.
Anyone who thought that
was proved wrong time and
again during the past two
hurricane seasons. And any
lingering, doubt was wiped
out by Hurricane Karrina.
As the powerful Category 5
storm surged through the
Gulf of Mexico, the primary
thought was not the ap-
proaching storm but the last
Category 5 storm to threaten
the Louisiana, Mississippi
and Alabama coastline: Ca-
mille.
The 1969 storm still rates
as the strongest storm to
strike the United States. It had.,
winds reaching 175 mph and


created a 20-foot storm surge,
another record.
Similar to Hurricane Char-
ley in 2004, Camille was a
small storm, compared to the
area that received the worst
winds.
Aside from the immediate
Mississippi coastline, many
residents saw Katrina as a
repeat of Camille, and they
evacuated or prepared ac-
cording to their 1969 experi-
ence and the 1969 high-water
marks.
The result was the deaths
of hundreds of people who
didn't expect the wide swath
of winds and the storm surge
to reach 29 feet in some
places.
During the 28th annual
National Hurricane Con-
ference recently, Katrina nat-
urally dominated the discus-
sion of how bad a hurricane
,.canFbe, e jo wrrt th
For experts, it wasn't the


worst-case scenario they had
feared, but it proved a costly
lesson that everyone who
lives along the gulf and At-
lantic coastline needs to
learn: You have not been
through the worst a hurricane
has to offer.
"The memory of Camille
probably killed more people
along the Gulf Coast last year-
than it did in 1969," a somber
National Hurricane Center
Director Max Mayfield told a
crowd of about 3,000 emer-
gency managers. "All hurri-
canes are different. You can't
depend on experience. Ex-,
perience is not a good teach-
er."
Katrina actually weakened
just before landfall, with Cat-
egory 3 winds. But the storm
had a broad wind field and
slowed enough to allow water
to be pushed up to 10 miles
inland... i .
During Hurricane Charley,


the storm actually intensified
just before landfall to a Cat-
egory 4 with maximum winds
of 150 mph, but it was moving
very fast, and water had no
time to accumulate and cre-
ate a high surge.
Betty Morrow, a sociologist
with Florida International
University, said surveys of
people preparing and fleeing
storms base many of their
decisions on previous experi-
ence. ,
"A lot of people have a false
experience," Morrow said. "It
can make the difference be-
tween people making the
right decision and the wrong
one."
Florida Division of Emerg-
ency Management Director
Craig Fugate said basing deci-
sions on past experience will
get people killed if the wrong

(mu sm min


storm comes.
"There is a very real risk
that numerous locations on
our coastline are at risk be-
cause of what they think they
have gone through," Fugate
said. "We have to educate the
public and great a better
awareness."
He hopes people will look
at the devastation from Ka-
trina, not in New Orleans, but
in Mississippi, where water
went miles inland.
"I can't pick a spot where I
feel comfortable with a major
storm coming ashore," Fu-
gate said. "We need to move
past the mentality that it can't
happen to them. A lot of folks
are ignoring the warnings. Far
too many that have the ability
leave as choosing not to."

hurricanes Frances, Ivan and
Jeanne followed soon after
and there was a mass exodus
from the area most heavily
damaged weeks earlier.
"The freshness of the expe-
rience does play a role," Lin-
dell said. "If they were a long
time since being hit or threat-
ened there was a direct rela-
tion to whether they were
more likely to stay or go."
Daniel Sutherland, an offi-
cer for Civil Rights and Civil
Liberties with the U.S. De-
partment of Homeland Se-
curity, said the research into
people living in New Orleans
found that 22 percent of the
250,000 people with disabili-
ties stayed in the city because
theywere physically unable to
leave. Another 23 percent of
the people who stayed behind
said they stayed because they
had to care for someone who
was unable to leave.
Morrow said another key
factor in the decision-making
process is an individual's eval-
uation of perceived dangers
as a storm approaches.
"It is the point where peo-
ple try to figure out if their
home can withstand the
winds," she said. "Fewer peo-
ple tend to think about the
threat of the storm surge. It
ranked low, but that might
have changed after Katrina.",

Sarasota sends objections




to Ona permit application


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


The Sarasota County Com-
mission joined an effort last
week to inject local input into
a federal permitting process
for a 20,675-acre phosphate
mine in Hardee County.
The commission sent a let-
ter to the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers requesting a 90-day
extension of a public input
period and a public hearing
before the agency grants the
permit for the Mosaic fertilizer
company's Ona mine.
By making the request, the
county joins Charlotte Coun-
ty, which also was working to
file comments and a request
for an extension.
The requests may have
already had an effect. The
district staff of U.S. Rep.
Katherine Harris said they
were told by the U.S. Army
Corps permit reviewer Melissa
Hogan that a 30-day extension
has already been granted.
Sarasota County's letter


cites its concern that mining
has the potential to impact
the quality and timing of the
flow of the Peace River. The
letter was sent the day a 30-
day public input period was
set to expire.
The comments were to be
submitted in response to a
public notice issued by the
Corps on March 27. However,
the notice, which triggers a
30-day public input period,
went unnoticed for weeks.
Although the notice had
been 'posted on the Corps'
Web site, Charlotte County
legal team members didn't
see it until they were told by
Corps staffers it had been
issued two weeks ago.
. Charlotte County's special
attorney, Ed de la Parte, was
expected to send a letter list-
ing the county's comments.
The notice was issued as
part of a permitting process
that requires public input on
federal permitting proposals.
Mosaic's proposal calls for
15,575 acres of the Ona site to


be strip-mined over the next
21 years. The plan also calls
for a beneficiation plant and
several clay settling areas.

Up the creeks
Located in western Hardee
County, the site is laced by a
half-dozen creeks, including
Horse, West Fork, Brushy, Oak,
Hickory and Troublesome.
Charlotte County is con-
cerned because the relatively
clean water in Horse Creek is
important to the Peace River,
which supplies water for
public supplies and the
Charlotte Harbor estuary.
The Ona site contains 5,326
acres of wetlands, of which
2,715 acres are to be excavat-
ed, according to the notice.
To mitigate the impact,- Mo-
saic would create 2,738 acres
of manmade wetlands.
The letter was brought up
on short notice at the Sarasota
board meeting April 26. It was
faxed to the Corps to make
sure it was received in time.
It asks for extra time and


County board has no one to report to


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


All but one of the many
advisory committees on
which the citizens-of Sarasota
County have an outlet.
One does not and there is
no easy way to rectify the
situation.
County commissioners
discussed the status of the
Animal Welfare Advisory
Committee during their most
recent meeting and are going
to try to figure out a way for
the committee to get its
voice heard.
This committee was created
years ago to deal with a variety
of animal control issues, such
as setting leash laws, control-
ling farm ani-mals and other
such issues relating to animals
of all types.
The group previously re-
ported to the county com-
missioners and sheriff's office


would allow the officials to
fully analyze the proposal -
and give the' public more
time to comment.
Charlotte's response is
coming i'i the wake of the
fact that Mosaic officials
cried foul after learning the


as needed and was a direct
channel for the public to
reach local officials.
Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton said there is no longer a
structure for the advisory
committee to report to any-
one and he wants the board
to help give the committee a
voice.
"There is no conduit to get
issues to the county's atten-
tion," Thaxton said. "I would

like it if they have a venue."
It was a few years ago
when the county re-examined
its charter and redefined the
roles of its advisory boards.
The animal welfare board,
it was determined, should re-
port to the sheriff's office and
not to the commissioners,
County Administrator Jim Ley
said.
The board later lost its
enacting ordinance so it can
defer its actions toward the
more-appropriate sheriff's


county had filed similar
comments on an Army
Corps permit for the compa-
ny's 2,400-acre Altman mine.
That mine is located
'northwest of Ona, at the
uppermost tip of Horse Creek
in Manatee County.. The


office. Since that time, the
committee has not reported
to any official group.
"This board did not exist
formally," Ley said. "They
kept moving forward on an
ad hoc basis."
But Commissioner Shan-
* non Staub said that some of
the committee's issues do fil-
ter through to the county
commissioners.
She admitted that those
issues alone are not enough
for such an important group,
especially a group that deals
with issues near and dear to
many in the community.
Thaxton received the sup-
port of the board to codify
the committee to make it a
formal advisory group to the
commission, as it once was.
He said he hopes it will
ensure that the advisory com-
mittee makes annual reports
to the county commissioners
as other advisory boards do.


mines are among more than
40,000 acres in new mines
proposed near the Peace
River in Hardee County alone.
The Charlotte Commis-
sion voted March 28 to settle
its challenge to a state permit
for the Altman mine.

about larger animals and their
safety when a ferocious storm
threatens.
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Shannon Staub said
there is a push by people in
several area counties to build
a regional pet shelter.
"It would be for the larger
animals," Staub told her fel-
low commis-
s i o n e r s
F recently.
She said the
idea piqued
her interest
because there
are many
i ranchettes in
the area that
Staub have horses,
and finding
a place for them to be shel-
tered is something that war-
rants discussion.
Staub said the idea would
call for Charlotte, DeSoto,
Sarasota and possibly other
counties to share the costs to
build a permanent shelter in
Arcadia.
The state is considering
contributing $4.7 million to
build a facility in partnership
with the Arcadia Rodeo that
will handle
humans and
their pets. The
state money is
contingent on
the project
A \. being a re-
gional effort.
One sugges-
tion to help
Mills raise money
is that each
participating county would
add $3 to the annual animal

to 5 a iad niited,,lthe idea
wd sjtillftin" the e'-ploratory
stages. '
Not in Arcadia
In the wake of two devas-
tating hurricane seasons,
many groups have come
together to deal with the
little-known problem of live-
stock affected by the storms.
The response to Hurricane
Katrina also showed the im-
pact of not
having some- ,
where for :
people to take
their horses
and other ani- _.
mals.. Many .
people stayed
behind, risk-
ing their lives.
Florida Patterson
requires
emergency operation centers
in each county have a plan
to deal with pets, as well as
large animals. There is no
provi-sion requiring shelter-
ing.
Sarasota County Commis-
sion Chairman David Mills
said the need is already too
great for people who live in
the county.

"I, for one, am not inter-
ested in an Arcadia shelter,"
Mills added.
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson said she isn't sure that
Arcadia is a safe place for
such a shelter, considering
what happened to the Turner


Center during Hurricane
Charley.
There are also concerns
about spending money for
a structure that may never
benefit livestock owners in
Sarasota County.
Board members agreed


they would need more in-
formation before they could
commit to the idea.
Staub said she would re-
lay the concerns back to the
people who are interested in
the idea, including DeSoto
County Commissioner Ron-


aid Neads.
The Sunshine,State Horse
Council has set up a Web site
with emergency preparation
information, emergency re-
sources and a database of
relocation sites places
that will provide space for


horses displaced by fire or
hurricane, on a temporary
basis until an emergency
subsides. The address is

Demise of boot camps will make little difference


lorida's punitive boot camps have final-
ly been shut down sort of. It took the
beating death of a 14-year-old boy, and
a sit-in at the governor's office, to eliminate
these vicious programs.
Now the same camps will reopen with a
new, gentler name Star Academies and
with $32.6 million in additional funds that
brings the total budget to $699.5 million, a
huge sum siphoned out of taxpayers' pock-
ets.
However, it will take much more than a
name change and a promise to be less cruel
to make a difference. Florida needs a pro-
gram that actually works.
There was a period in Florida's recent his-
tory back in the 1970s when the state's
juvenile justice system began to produce
positive results with troubled and troubling
children who were held in small camps.
But as is the nature of politics, when a new
governor and legislature take over and old
department heads 'are replaced, officials


insist on doing things in their own way. So an
effective program, based on the teachings of
Harry Vorrath, begun in Florida more than
three decades ago, was replaced with the lat-
est fad.
Vorrath, a trained social worker and for-
mer Marine, first created a system of saving
children in Kentucky and then at a reform
school in Red Wing, Minn., in the 1960s.
Called Positive Peer Culture. It still is being
successfully used in the Midwest and West,
including Michigan, Ohio, New Mexico and
California. Now past "normal" retirement
age, Vorrath, who lives in San Diego, is still
working in the field.
What makes PPC different is that it trans-
forms angry, self-centered teens into individ-
uals who care about others. As a former
Marine, Vorrath saw young men crawl across
a battlefield as bullets flew to save wounded
buddies. PPC teaches troubled teens to res-
cue one another from destructive, criminal
behavior.


Camp Wilmont Sweeney, a local, 24-hour
California residential program, deals with
youngsters committed by Alameda County
Juvenile Court.
The overall goal of the program is "to
return each minor to his community as a
positive and productive citizen."
In New Mexico, Rancho Valmora also
adopted Vorrath's Positive Peer Culture pro-
gram. One observer writes:
"One of the main aspects of a Positive Peer
Culture is the students themselves take
much of the responsibility of working with
their peers, while the staff facilitate to make
sure things stay positive and constructive."
One of the groups with the most experi-
ence using Positive Peer Culture is Starr
Commonwealth, a nonprofit program in
Michigan and Ohio. Starr is named after the
founder, Floyd Starr, who opened its first
facility in 1913.
Today it runs dozens of programs for trou-
bled youth and their families, and it credits


much of its success to adopting Vorrath's
Positive Peer Culture.
"Our experience with the peer group
empowerment .model in the treatment of
troubled kids has been remarkably success-
ful," according to a Starr Commonwealth
official.
Youngsters prepare their own meals, wash
and iron their clothing, make their beds and
clean up their cottage. They take a tradition-
al school program, with support staff to
encourage youngsters who are behind. But
most important, as one youngster wrote:
"We spend time every day in group meet-
ings, learning how to make right choices so
that once we graduate from Starr, we will be
successful."
With a fresh start and sufficient funds,
Florida could now do it right. If it doesn't
there will be little progress, and residents will
suffer when inmates are released.
It will go on until someone else dies. Then,
a new program will be created.


'You should do it


without going up'


ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST


Among the many impor-
tant and insightful things the
Venice Area Historical So-
ciety's invited speaker, archi-
tect Charles D. Warren, said is
that Venice's future will de-
pend on "political will and
civic activism."
Warren spoke on "Nolen
and New Urbanism." John
Nolen, as many citizens know,
designed the original Venice,
which is still revered by city
planners across the nation
and, in fact, the world.
Economic conditions
made completing all of No-
len's vision impossible for
example, the entire stretch of
beach from north to south,
would have been untouched
by the numerous apartments
and condominiums that now
exist.
Looking at his plans, with
the open vistas Nolen felt
were a key element in livable
communities, is to mourn
opportunities lost. It is our
great, good fortune that much
of his vision, particularly
downtown and the parks and
open spaces and our stretch-
es of undeveloped beach, is
still in place.
Warren suggested Venice's
citizens need to be sure our
current downtown Venice is
not adulterated by the height
increases advocated by some
of our developers and their
supporters on council. He
added that we should apply
Nolen's principles to new
growth in this rare model city.
In comments after the
meeting, he said to me, "You
should do it without going
up."
I was happy to see about
200 citizens come out on a
Friday night to hear about
Nolen's insights, including, to
their credit, six members of
city council. I hope the audi-
ence will help council focus
on the issues that have been
raised by a few.'
Betty Intagliata, president
of the Venice Area Historical
Society, and resident Don
O'Connell, among a few oth-
ers, have made presentations
to council that for the most
part seem not to have been
sympathetically received. A
few members have argued
against their limited under-


standing of "New Urbanism"
as the outgrowth of -Nolen's
ideas is sometimes called.
WheA it has been suggest-
ed by the hardy few at council
meetings or in this column,
we have had responses like
that of Mayor Dean Cala-
maras, who felt that applying
the principals of Nolen to the
emerging North Venice was
mistaken, because people out
there want to live in a subur-
ban setting.
We tcan, only hope that
council members listening
Friday night could appreciate
Warren's suggestion that a city
can include several "mini"
cities and that the areas being
developed should not just be
a series of discrete develop-
ments, but could have some
unifying themes, parks and
gathering spaces, as well as
shopping areas and "walka-
bility"
Venice city planners, to
their credit, have required
some of these features in
approving some new annexa-
tions for example, connec-
tor roads linking Border and
Laurel roads, and walking, or
where feasible, road links
between new developments,
so that the model of all traffic
passing through a gate and
circulating back out will not
be a part of the plans.
There still is no sign that
council would like those fu-
ture, residents of Venice, living
in 6,000 to 9,000 new units of
housing, to have an amenity
like a central park or green,
perhaps a kiosk for music
performances like the one in
Centennial Park.
The importance of height
VAHS had sponsored a lec-
ture earlier this year by anoth-
er Nolen expert, Dr. Bruce
Stepherison. Among the
points Stephenson made was
that Nolen designed the city
with its tallest building being
four stories.
He felt that no buildings
higher than that were com-
patible with Nolen's vision, a
message to council if it con-
siders such proposals, includ-
ing that from developer Mi-
chael Miller to build a seven-
story condo-hotel as part of a
mixed-use development be-
tween Tampa and East Venice
avenues and between Busi-
ness 41 and the Intracoastal
Waterway.
In his remarks Friday, War-
ren showed pictures of cities
including Marymount, Ohio,
another city influenced by
Nolen, and Charleston, S.C.,
which he emphasized gained
its beauty and appeal from its
compatibility of low-level
heights, architectural style

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Animal crossings must be preserved


Editor:
The plans to provide three full median openings as well as
the possibility of six right-in only driveway connections for
future development along State Road 681 will adversely impact
vulnerable wildlife populations in and around Oscar Scherer
State Park.
The increased traffic along the southern boundary of the
park will be more of an impediment when wildlife attempts to
enter or leave the park in search of food, mates or territories
and must cross S.R. 681. This additional stress on already
threatened animal populations would result in further isola-
tion and possible local extinctions.
Animals currently cross below the 681 railway overpass and
travel across private land onto public conservation lands 2
miles east of 1-75. It is vital to preserve this crossing and also
provide a means for safe passage across 1-75 as part of any new
road construction along S.R. 681.
Sunday, April 28,2,500 people celebrated Earth Day at Oscar
Scherer State Park and observed the 50th anniversary of Elsa
Scherer Burrows' gift of land to the state of Florida. The park
represents 50 years of public stewardship to safeguard this
priceless piece of the "real Florida" for future generations to
enjoy.
The Friends of Oscar Scherer Park Inc. asks that the state
honor this public stewardship by providing the funding for
wildlife crossings as part of any and all road construction or
reconstruction.

Religious freedom
safe and sound

Editor:
I am a Christian, Roman-
Catholic. I find all this talk
about a "war on Christianity"
hogwash. Checking around I
could find ro signs that my
right to religious freedom has
been violated.
I still have and read my
Bible the Roman Catholic
version, not the King James
version we were forced to
read in New Jersey public
schools before the Supreme
Court ruled against school
prayer.
I still have a cross over my


bed. Every month the U.S.
mail delivers my copy of the
Liguorian, a religious maga-
zine. I sent in my income tax
and was able to claim my reli-
gious deductions.
Every Sunday, on my way
to church, I pass several
homes that have statues of
the Virgin Mary on private
property. My church is open
and unharmed, unlike Ala-
bama, where a group of
churches were destroyed by
students from a Christian col-
lege. At the 10:30 a.m. Mass
no storm troopers are watch-
ing the priest's every move.
The only serious attack on
my religion has come from


Bob Jones, founder of Bob
Jones University, a Christian
university. This man has
called the Roman Catholic
Church a satanic cult and our
pope the Antichrist.
History has recorded many
attacks on Christians; most of
these have been by other
Christians.
If there is any war on
Christianity, it seems to be a
civil war.

Expect results from
city and county
Editor:
County Commissioner
Shannon Staub said it best at
the joint meeting of the board
of county commissioners and
Venice City Council: "It's all
about money." She also said
that both the city of Venice
and Sarasota County have
more projects for their Cap-
ital Improvement Plans than
money.
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Jon Thaxton echoed
Commissioner Staub and
added that since this conun-
drum exists, then both gov-
ernmental groups should be
prepared to be vigorously
lobbied by various citizen
groups who seek fiscal deci-
sions beneficial to their inter-
ests.
I want to see both govern-
mental bodies advance the
opportunities for healthful
and affordable housing. Oth-
er citizens have different
goals for government action.
Commissioner Thaxton
and various Venice council
members acknowledged it is
essential for City Manager
Marty Black and County


Administrator Jim ILey and
their staffs to work together to
avoid duplication and waste
of taxpayer revenue.
The best practice that was
suggested was to officially
establish a joint planning
agreement. That commit-
ment to collaboration could
benefit the common good
and optimize the prudent use
of gas, sales and property
taxes; impact fees; user fees;
and telecommunication rev-
enue.
A concrete example would
be a master plan that would
address the traffic congestion
that exists on U.S. 41, U.S. 41
Bypass and 1-75 by expediting
the building of two
north/south roads: the
Honore-Pinebrook route and
the extension of Knights Trail
Road north to Clark Road in
Sarasota.
Voters who elect these
public servants must monitor
how hard they push to estab-
lish this joint planning policy
to manage growth in these
two jurisdictions.
The ball is in their court,
but at election time we, the
people, hold the racket.

It's a bridge too soon


No common sense. This is about the letdown at Caspersen
Beach. If anybody's been here lately, we have a situation where
they finally opened parking spaces. Now, a year after the park-
ing spaces opened, they closed that whole section due to
replacing a little bridge over a canal. Just an excellent example
of how our elected officials operate around here. Middle of
snowbird season and they cut out half the parking spaces. Why
didn't they do this in the summer? It would have made so much
more common sense. I live here year-round and it was hard
enough to find a parking space with those extra spaces, not to
mention the picnic area and the pavilion you cannot get to
anymore because of this bridge construction. Where are their
heads at? I thought these guys were highly educated people.


The dumb ones. Coinci-
dence? I think not. First, it was
a slick sales job by superin-
tendent Norris selling the ref-
erendum and knowing all the
time he is selling the need for
teacher money. He either
knew, or should have known,
the student count had not,
would not, meet the projec-
tions for an additional 260
teachers needed. Go figure.
Who were the dumb ones
here? You guessed, it is us.
Now we need to refund $5
million-$6 million in over-
funding dollars. Someone's
head needs to roll.
If in the real world, if a
business manager did this
kind of a job, he would be
gone. Oh well, what's $5 mil-
lion or $6 million when you
have state funding up and a
checkbook with a guaranteed
$250 mil to draw from? It's not
the poor Spanish or the poor
black student that is hurting
for knowledge. It is the stupid
taxpayer.
Reality check. This call is in
response to the people who
are annoyed by the traffic we
parents create fqr a whole
half-hour each morning and
afternoon by dropping off
and picking up our spoiled
children at school. We'd just
like to say how thrilled we are
that 50 years ago back in
Mayberry, you were able to let
arour kids walk to and f4 i':
school and not worry about
them getting hit by a car
crossing busy Highway 41, or


being stolen by someone who
would harm them. Please join
us in the reality of the 21st
century. There is at least 10
times as much traffic, and half
of it from people who don't
even live here. There are 48
registered sex offenders living
within 5 miles of our elemen-
tary and high schools, and for
those of you who don't know,
they are only one block apart.
Thirty-one of those sexual
offenders are within 3 miles of
the schools.
So maybe instead of com-
plaining about us, you should
congratulate us for keeping
our kids safe.
He got paid. I have a ques-
tion in Sunday's Let'em have
it regarding Bill Hagar, the
contractor for donating the
fountain. I understood that
Mr. Hagar was paid for build-
ing that fountain, he didn't
donate it. Maybe that should
be clarified for the readers.
EDITOR'S NOTE: He donated,
the work and persuaded many
subcontractors and suppliers to
make donations as well.


Just how long? I believe I
read in the paper the Pine-
brook extension would be fin-
ished when they got a new
traffic light to put in where it
comes in to Center Road.
Now, three or four months
later, I still have not seen any
traffic light, nor has the exten-
sion been opened. Perhaps
someone can tell the readers
just how long it takes to get a
traffic light put up. I'm sure
we'd all be glad to hear.
Not right. The other day I
was walking down the street
and got chased by a pit bull off
a leash. I just want to let them
know that they need a leash
law. It's not right being chased
by a pit bull and then bit in
the butt when you try to jump
a fence. It didn't hurt and I
didn't get stitches from it, so,
let'em have it.
Be aware. I think the city
does need a leash law, but
what we really need are more
considerate dog walkers. They
have no qualms about bring-
ing their dogs on the lawn and
letting them do their thing;
some of them clean it up and
some of them don't. So they
need the people to be aware
of other people's property.
Garbage. What is your
paper trying to do? Is it a
national advertisement for
the liberals? Well, I don't have
to read your garbage and I'm
not gonna.

MCC + USF adds up to more


opportunities in South County


DRS. LAUREY STYKER
AND SARAH H. PAPPAS



Thanks to a wonderful
partnership between MCC
and USF Sarasota-Manatee,
college-level degree pro-
grams available to South
Sarasota County residents
just got better.
MCC has had a South
Saasota County presence
siVce opening a Venice satel-
lite in 1977. Many current res-
idents are familiar with the
present 100-acre campus that
opened in 1985 at 8000 South
Tamiami Trail, located equal
distance between Venice,
North Port and Englewood.
Another chapter in South
Sarasota County higher edu-
cation opened in 2004 when,
thanks to grant funding from
Gulf Coast Foundation of
Venice, USF Sarasota-Mana-
tee began providing junior-
and senior-level courses at
MCC Venice for people in the
area wanting to achieve their
bachelor's degrees.
Just last month, another
leap .forward was achieved
when MCC and USF Sara-
sota-Manatee signed a new
cooperation agreement that
will further increase local


opportunities for higher edu-
cation.
Our two schools have
agreed to expand significantly
our 2001 articulation agree-
ment, known informally as
the "2+2 Program," which
makes it easy for MCC gradu-
ates with associate's degrees
to transfer their credits to
bachelor's degree programs at
USF Sarasota-Manatee. Our
"new and enhanced" agree-
ment assures that MCC stu-
dents who attain 30 credit
hours (their freshman year)
and then graduate from MCC
will be eligible for automatic
provisional acceptance at
USF Sarasota-Manatee.
The new MCC and USF
Sarasota-Manatee agreement
also includes a commitment
to -work together to establish
new academic programs

to compete, which is impor-

means we won't be wasting
time and resources while
competing for students and
support for duplicate acade-

MCC will continue offering
freshman- and sophomore-

est in higher education make
it certain that more space will
be needed and soon.
Therefore, the pursuit of
joint-use facilities at MCC
Venice is another feature of
our agreement.
We've seen many positive
examples of students who
already have benefited from
the existing pairing of associ-
ate's and bachelor's-level
coursework at MCC Venice.
For example, one student
named Mark, whose young-
est child is about to graduate
from high school, earned his
associate's degree from MCC
last year and is taking USF
classes at MCC Venice all
while keeping his full-time
job as an auto mechanic and
attending classes at night. He
expects to receive his USF
bachelor's degree in 2007. His
goal: to become a teacher.
Mark's example is just one
of many success stories of
people who have taken
advantage of the college-level
courses provided in South
Sarasota County by MCC and
USF Sarasota-Manatee.
With our new enhanced
partnership, we look forward
to welcoming many more.

and tree-shaded sidewalks
and streets.
After the meeting I asked
Warren about discussions of
attempts to raise heights in
Venice, about what some call
"in-development" i.e.,
building within the city, filling
vacancies or replacing build-
ings in disrepair (but not of
historical importance.)
It was then he said, "You
should do it without growing
up!"
He mentioned again the
model of Charleston, which
he had emphasized, and said


the "great cities were not tall."
I stopped to chat with
council members Vicki Taylor
and John Moore on the way
out, sharing with them War-
ren's admonition about
height.
Council member Fred
Hammett intruded on the
conversation, saying I was
wrong and that some of the
pictures showed taller build-
ings in the middle of cities. I
shared Warren's direct words
with him and he stalked away.
I think citizens like those in
VAHS will need to be activists


in the political process to help
assure more representation of
something other than devel-
opers' views.

Venice smacks Seminole in region opener


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

In Major League Baseball,
players want to be Mr.
October.
In high school baseball,
it's how you play in May.
The Venice High baseball
team captured its regional
opener Tuesday night, look-
ing sharp in most aspects of
the game in a 7-2 decision
over visiting Seminole.
The Indians, winners of
five straight, will see what
they're made of Friday night
in a region semifinal on the
road at Tampa-Hillsborough.
Hillsborough (24-4) is ranked
fourth in Class 5A.
- Venice, the District 12
champion, improved its rec-
ord to 17-12 while Seminole,
the District 11 runnerup,
went home with a final 19-9
mark.
The Indians got another
solid pitching performance
from Jeremie Cook, who
scattered five hits and fanned
eight in 6 1/3 innings of
work. Cook was also impres-
sive in last week's district
opener against Lakewood
Ranch.
Just as important, Cook led
off the bottom of the first
inning with a long home to
right off Hawk starter and
loser Terry Brinker.
"We jumped on them
early," Venice coach Craig
Faulkner said. "Cook set the
tone with his home run. We
didn't have a lot of hits, but
we had timely hitting."
The Seminole infield didn't
help Brinker after Cook's
dinger in the first. Joe Salo-
mone was hit by a pitch.
Jordan Lucas reached on an
error by the second baseinan.
The runners moved up on a


wild pitch and both came
home when shortstop Billy
Falasco tried to throw Trevor
Pelletier's grounder into the
trailer park.
Venice didn't let up, scor-
ing two more in the second
to grab control of the game
at 5-0. Ryan Anderson and
Cook drew. walks. They
moved up on a double steal.
Mr. Clutch Jordan Lucas
brought them home with a
line single over the short-
stop's head.
Brinker only lasted two
innings, giving way to Juan
Eckelbarger in the third.
Seminole scored one of
its runs in the third on a hit
batsman and two hits.
Venice didn't score in the
third or fourth frames, but
two more in the fifth made
it 7-1 and made life easier
for all Indian fans in atten-
dance.
Lucas led off with a single.
Brett Holte followed with a
screaming RBI double over
the left fielder's head. Pinch
runner Donnie Albert scored
on a sacrifice fly to center by
Pelletier.
Cook was pulled after giv-
ing up a hit in the seventh.
Jason Kaufmnan closed it out.
Venice lost to Seminole in
the regional finals two years
ago. Revenge is sweet.
"We're playing winning
ball," Faulkner said. "We're
playing well. Play in May.
Two hours of fury."
Sounds like a winning
formula.

2nd annual Challenger Fest this weekend at Wellfield


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

They're coming from as far
away as Tallahassee, Jackson-
ville and Miami.
For the second year in a
row, Venice will be the host
city for the annual state
Challenger Fest. It will take
place Saturday and Sunday.
Challenger is a division of
Little League that is devoted
to mentally and physically
handicapped kids. It gives
those children the opportun-
ity to play ball like others.
Venice Little League Chal-
lenger commissioner Rich
Carroll Sr. said 26 teams are
heading to town for the two-
day event.
"We had 22 teams last
year, so we're up," he said.
"It's a lot of work, but it's
worth it to see the kids smile.
This gives them a chance to
travel and play in a tourna-
ment like other Little League
teams."
Venice Challenger plays its
regular games once a week at
Chuck Reiter Complex.
A much bigger site was
needed for Challenger Fest.
Wellfield definitely has the
room.


Carroll has worked tire-
lessly in getting everything in
order for the Fest.
"We have 280 hotel rooms
in Venice, Osprey and Sara-
sota," he said. "Others have
donated food. All the other
teams have to pay for is the
gas to get here."
Locals who have chipped
in $1,000 towards the Chal-
lenger Fest include Dennis,
Adrian of Artistry Nursery,
Joe Komaroskie of Allstate,
Lumpy Hall of Advanced
Asphalt and Boone, Boone,
Boone, Koda & Frook.
Food sponsors stepping
up to the plate include Don
Atamanchuk of Lock and Key
Restaurant, Sweet Bay, Sal
and Tony's Pizza, Buddy's
Pizza, Hess Express and Wal-
Mart.
"Lock and Key is giving us
3,000 hot dogs and hamburg-
ers," Carroll said. "Wal-Mart
is supplying rolls, soda and
water. Sal and Tony's, Buddy's
and Hess Express are giving
us 120 pizzas between them.
Sweet Bay is giving us cook-
ies."
Matthews-Currie Ford has
helped by plugging the Chal-
lenger Fest in its TV spots.

Sorry Kermit, it is easy




to be green


SUN PHOTOS B COURTNE', LINN
Contact lens wearers will love swimming in this saltwater pool in the green home. It's like swimming in saline solution. There is no chlorine.


BY COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER

In recognition of Earth
Day, seventh- and eighth-
graders from Laurel Nokomis
Middle School were given a
tour of the Venetian Golf &
River Club facilities to learn
how to easy it is to live every
day in environmentally
sound ways.
Students were split into
three groups, and each were
taken to a special part of the
club's environment friendly
sections.
The first part of the tour
began with a nature walk
showing off the 70-acre
wildlife preserve. The nature
walk featured a great deal of
animals that are indigenous
to Florida.
The second part of the tour
was of the golf facility. Karen
Childress, environmental
stewardship manager for the
club, showed the students
how the water used to main-
tain the golf club has been
recycled and filtered over and:
over for four years.
The third part of the tour,
and also the most fascinating,
was the tour of one of the
green homes that the Ve-
netian Golf & River Club has
to offer. A Green Home can be
labeled as a home that is envi-
ronmentally efficient. One
might expect the home to be
lacking in the finery that a
regular home would have, or
one might expect it to cost
thousands more to build than
a regular home. However, the
idea that these homes are
-lacking in any way or are
more costly is a fallacy.
Dr. Jennifer Lanquell, of
Florida Gulfcoast University
and the director of the WCI
Green Building Learning and
Demo Center, gave the stu-
dents a tour of this fascinating
home.
To be a green home, a
house must use 50 percent


less energy than a regular
home, according to the Flor-
ida Green Building Industry.
There is a test that uses a
point system to determine if a
home is green. If the home
tests at 200 points, as all the
homes in the Venetian Golf &
River Club do, it is considered
Green. The model house,
which was viewed by the stu-
dents, tests at 329 points.
From outside, the house
looked like a typical Florida
home. Nice green lawn,
shrubs growing outside the
windows and a beautiful exte-
rior. However, it is what the
home is composed of that
makes it green.
The plants are all plants
that can survive on rainwater
alone, meaning the plants
require no extra watering.
The air conditioning unit is
50 percent more efficient, and
combined with spray foam
insulation and a variable
speed air handler, the heating
and cooling costs are less
than regular homes. The ,win-
dows are all double-paned
glass and argon filled to help
with insulation. And, the attic,
which in a regular home
could reach temperatures of
150 degrees during the day,
was a cool 75 degrees during
the tour.
Also, the home. features
efficient forms of plumbing.
The water heater is tankless,
meaning water is heated on
demand and less energy is
used throughout the day. The
toilets were both low-flow
models, guaranteed to reduce
water usage by 10 percent.
In addition to items in the
home that will save energy
and money, there are also
other items that help the
environment. The floors,
instead of being oak or pine,
were made of bamboo rods.
The bamboo, which is har-
vested every five years, is a
renewable resource, unlike
oak which takes so long to


grow. Oak takes a minimum
of 30 years to teach maturity
and produce logs large
enough for flooring. Bamboo
is environmentally safe, and
its unique patterning is
aesthetically pleasing. It will
last as long as a traditional
* hard-wood floor.
Another floor in the home
was made of cork, the same
material used as stoppers in
wine bottles. Cork is harvest-
ed from live trees in such a
way that no damage is done
to the tree, which continues
to grow still more cork, which
can be harvested again and
again in a peeling process.
The two different carpets
in the house were also envi-
ronmentally friendly. One
carpet is made from recycled
plastic bottles, such as water
bottles and milk jugs. Another
carpet was made from wool
and features all natural fibers,
which makes it difficult for
pollutants and chemical


emissions to harm the home's
inhabitants. In fact, Lanquell
said that babies can inhale
fumes equivalent to those of
cigarettes from synthetic car-
pets.
In the kitchen a beautiful
mosaic was made .of glass
tiles made from recycled
glass, the same glass found in
nearly everyone's trash cans.
The paint on all the walls,
which was as rich in color as
any other paint available
today, also has its benefits.
What .is unknown to many
people is that paint emits a
gas that causes respiratory
problems in people, specifi-
cally those with asthma. The
paint in the Green House is
called a lowVOC paint, which
means it is low in volatile
organic compounds. The
paint is also low-off gassing,
helpful to many asthmatics.
In addition to all of the
environmental items used to
build the house, the furnish-


ings were also all environ-
mentally friendly. The sheets
that lined the beds were all
100 percent cotton. Today's
cotton is nearly wrinkle-free
and the higher thread counts
selected added to the room's
luxurious appearance.
Many of what appeared to
be ceiling lights were sun

tubes, a type of sophisticated
sky light, which look exactly
like regular overhead lights.
Of course, the lights do not
work at night, but during day-
light hours, the sun tubes
offer a free source of addition-
al illumination.
But the most spectacular
element of the home was the
pool. Not just visibly wonder-
ful, the pool contains no
harmful chemicals. Instead
the pool is filled with a varia-
tion on saltwater, a saline
solution that will not bleach
swim suits or cause dry skin

Please see GREEN, 6B


Glass tiles made from recycled glass are a feature of the green home's designer kitchen.

I Boy Scouts go to the Florida Keys

STORY AND PHOTOS COURTESY OF TIM GISSAL,


Recently the Boy Scouts of

meals, swabbed the deck and
stood watch at night. In addi-
tion to snorkeling, fishing and
sailing, they learned seaman-


ship, navigation and environ-
mental science. The scouts
who participated :in this
adventure were Barron
Baszto, Ted Baszto, Tyson
Bradly, Sam Dieffenwierth.
Patrick Doctor, Nicholas
Gissal, Paud Marrone. Eric

Rest in peace, Dad


Lemon Bay 'linchpin'


I'm back.
I realize that most readers
did not realize I was not here.
A much different person, but
I'm back. I can only hope I'm
a better person.
Yes, I know you're thinking
I am not being funny. I will be
next time.
As someone who was
trained (in school) in comic
acting and stand-up. comedy,
I've learned that one might
not feel happy but one can
still be funny. That's the funny
thing about humor.
I spent more than a month
beside my father in the hospi-
tal. I suffered much. The per-
son I was seems to have been
destroyed, or rather trans-
formed.
"I'm not the man I was,"
stated Ebenezer Scrooge.
Anyway, I've learned many
lessons. I have learned, just
before reaching 50, what the
priorities of life are.
My beloved father, Edward
Driscoll carpenter, college
professor, Ph.D., gentle hus-
band and father, sentimental
story teller, word person (the
greatest one I know; no mis-
use of a word could escape
him *- we often said he could
find mistakes in the dictio-
nary) and writer of limericks
"went to the Father's house"
(Pope John Paul's expression
for death) on Friday, March 3,
2006.
So this time I want to have
you read some of Edward
Driscoll's limericks. Enjoy!

STAFF REPORT


More than 225 volunteers,
guests and staff recently
enjoyed a beautiful spring
evening at Selby Gardens dur-
ing a Selby's Volunteer Sunset
Celebration. Catered hors
d'oeuvres and beverages
compliments of Michael's On
East, live music and door
prizes donated by area busi-
nesses were featured as vol-
unteers were honored for
their contributions in the
day-to-day operations of the
Gardens.
"Volunteers are the life-
blood of Selby Gardens and
we appreciate their bound-
less energy, reliability and
passion for this special place.
The purpose of this evening
was to say 'thank you' for all
that they- do," stated Selby
CEO, Roger Birkel.
Manager of Volunteer
Services, Charles Butterfield,
says, "Volunteers play a key
role in all areas of Selby, from
horticulture, research, ad-


a cat
And sorry he was he did
that
'cuz the stripes on the crit-
ter was white.

There was a nice lady
named Polly
Who had sisters named
Holly and Molly
They were the happiest
three
Anyone ever did see
And why not?, Their sur-
name was Jolly.

There was a young gal in
Hoboken
Whose heart by her
boyfriend was broken
For a time very long long
He strung her along
For the cad was onlyjokin'!

There was a young crook
named Ted
With an identical twin
named Ned.
Now Ned pulled a job
And poor Ted to jail was
led.

There was a young student
named Brown
Who sought after great
renown
He went all out to add
fame to his name
And all he became was
"class clown."

My father not only loved to
write limericks but would
read heart-felt poetry from
books and "get all choked up,"
as he did on Christmas Eve
two years ago when he read to
us from 0. Henry's "Gift of the
Magi." A story he loved, an
author he knew much about.
But it was Shakespeare
who was my father's literary
love. He READ the plays. He
didn't attend them. I once
asked him why he loved
Shakespeare so much. He
responded that "no one
understood human nature so
well."

Sarasota County Commissioners agreed April 25 to purchase the property at 10 Harbor Lane just off Dearborn Street in
Englewood. The county will buy the property, which sits on Lemon Bay and the Intracoastal Waterway, for $1.3 million
from Gay N. Pasternak as trustee. The purchase of the property meets a goal of the Englewood Town Center Revitalization
plan and the Englewood Community Redevelopment plan. Acquisition of the property increases the amount of waterfront
land Sarasota County owns at the end of Dearborn Street. "This will change the face of Englewood and I think this is pretty
spectacular," said Commission Chair David Mills. "This will be a linchpin in the redevelopment of the Englewood area."

WCI, the developer and
builder of all the homes at the
Venetian Golf & River Club,
was responsible for the stu-
dent tour. After the tour was
over, the students were led
back to the River Club for a
demonstration about wildlife.
Matt Edmonds showed off
his animals in his Wonders of
Nature road show. Many of
the animals he showed are
indigenous to Florida, such as
a hawk, an owl, a flying squir-
rel and a vulture. However, he
managed to sneak a huge spi-
der and a graceful python into
the show. Combined with
demonstrations from the ani-


mals and brief biology and
physics lessons, the students
found his show the highlight
of the event.
As a wrap up to the event,
Lanquell offered hope to peo-
ple who want to have Green
homes. She said more
builders are using these envi-
ronmentally sound methods
of home-building and such
homes are not necessarily
just being built upon de-
mand. One day many houses
will be environmentally
friendly and will be available
for purchase alongside tradi-
tional ones.
Perhaps even one day,
Green homes will be synony-
mous with traditional homes.

athletes are
general in
good pl ysical shape,
there are competitive sports that put
their participants at increased risk for
bone and joint problems. According to
English researchers, football (soccer) players
were ten times more likely to develop
osteoarthritis in theirhips than other men. They
also had hip replacements in their late thirties
and early forties, which is uncommon at such a
young age. Moreover, female long-distance
runners were found to be more prone to low bone
mineral density, which can lead to fractures and
the brittle-bone disease osteoporosis. A link was
discovered between lower bone density in the hip
and spine and running greater distances. However,
Heavier women in the study were found to have
higher bone densities,
If you're involved in athletics, we encourage you to
adopt a moderate, consistent program of resistance
exercise. Chiropractic care can provide maximum
health, comfort, and function in the daily activities
of daily living, with minimum of stress, discomfort,
and expense.
At TWIN PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH CENTER,
our goal is to provide you and your entire family
with quality chiropractic healthcare. We're located
at 1214-C Venice Ave. East. Please call
941-412-3800 to schedule an appointment and let
us help you. We offer message therapy and have 4
licensed massage therapists on staff.
P.S. Regarding the study mentioned above, it
may not be the mode of exercise alone that affects
the bone mineral density of female athletes as
much as the force applied to the limbs during
exercise and the resulting effects on body
composition.

IN SHAPE


Overplanning is good, isn't it? Who knows?


J.J. Andrews
BACK OF THE PACK
EDITOR'S NOTE: This Back of
the Pack column originally
appeared inside the March 23,
2005, edition. "The Girlfriend"
became "The Wife" last weekend,
so I'm off on my honeymoon.
Watch for a new column inside the
May 10 edition.
On occasion I've been
accused of overplanning and
overpreparing.
Take the impending visit
by family members this
Friday. What's the harm in
planning activities down to


the minute and cleaning my
apartment from top to bot-
tom?
Though my girlfriend did
point out I'd gone a bit far in
sliding the oven away from
the wall and waxing that part
of the floor. Odds are my
mother doesn't plan to look
there, but you never know.
Besides, have you ever
taken a look at what's gath-
ered underneath your oven?
Ugh. It's enough to make me
want to just use a microwave.
Spring break is upon us,
and many relatives and
friends will be visiting our
beaches, restaurants and
other attractions before
heading back north where
gray skies and cold are some-
thing you just accept. I grew
up in Ohio, so I know this is
fact.
Where to run
Some of those visitors will
be runners. And while there
are plenty of tourist guides for


commerce-related activities, I
do not know of a tourist map
for joggers.
So here's my tourist guide
for joggers looking for routes
around Venice. The start and
end spot is the West Venice
Avenue crosswalk in front of
El Patio Hotel, and all dis-
tances are estimates.
Dolphin Run (4 miles) -
A nice out-and-back run to
the South Jetty where the 2-
mile marker is the second
trash can on the jetty. Your
reward once there is an
incredible view of the Gulf of
Mexico, and odds are you'll
see at least three or more dol-
phins dancing around the
boats.
Follow Venice Avenue to
the beach, turn 'right, then
hang a left on Tarpon Center
Drive and follow it to the jetty.
Watch your footing along
Tarpon Center Drive's side-
walks because it's uneven
from all of the condominium
entrances, making it easy to


twist your ankle and there's
no bicycle or berm lanes
along the road.
Wish List Run (5.5 miles)
- This is the route I take
along Nokomis Avenue where
I see all of the nice, older
island homes I'd like to buy,
but could never afford on a
reporter's salary. Who knows
how much longer these hous-
es will last before being
knocked down and replaced
with a faux-Venetian build-
ing.
Nokomis ends at Airport
Avenue (1.5-mile mark).
Hang a right and then a left at
Harbor Drive to tack on a few
more miles passing the fish-
ing pier, Sharky's restaurant
and the airport. Turn around
at the Lake Venice Golf Club
sign and follow Harbor back
to Venice Avenue.
Island Perimeter (14
miles?) This is my favorite
run, especially since it incor-
porates much of the Venetian
Waterway Park bike path and


basically hugs the water the
entire run. Directions for this
route are a bit complicated.
All getting lost does is add
some distance to your run
because most island roads
eventually lead back to Venice
Avenue or U.S. 41 Business,
so use these to get back
downtown if lost.
Start off doing the Dolphin
Run, except on your way
back, turn left where Tarpon
Center Drive ends at The
Espanlade. The road name
changes to Laguna Drive and
weaves through high-priced
and older homes, including
the city's oldest home, built in
1896, at 811 Laguna Drive and
currently at risk of being
demolished.
Laguna's name changes to
Harbor Drive as you
approach downtown, and
this is where you hang a left
on Tampa Avenue to pass
Venice Little Theatre and
cross U.S. 41 Business to
reach the bike path (about 4.5


miles). Stick to the bike path,
taking a little jaunt down U.S.
41 Business to go under the
Circus Bridge (about 8.5
miles). When you pop out at
Caspersen Beach Park (10.5
miles), head for Harbor Drive
and follow it back to Venice
Avenue.
There are public drinking
fountains along this route,
but I never paid attention to
where they are because I
always carry my own water.
So these are the Back of the
Pack's top three Venice runs. I
wish all of you visitors luck.
And if you're looking for a
running partner, the Venice
running group meets at 6
a.m. every Wednesday and
Friday at the downtown park-
ing lot on Venice Avenue.
Back of the Pack appears
every Wednesday. Send run-
ning-related e-mails to
Assistant Editor J.J. Andrews

lier:com.

STAFF REPORT

The New Balance Ringling
Bridge Run III this year raised
$58,973 for the Bari Brooks
Center for teens and for
Hurricane Katrina relief,
according to David Mills,
Sarasota County
Commissioner and race chair.
Of the total, $36,572 was
distributed to three YMCA
branches in Louisiana to help
pay the deductibles on their
insurance for losses incurred
in the hurricane. Half of that
donation was in matching
funds from the YMCA of the
USA. The remaining $22,401
was given to the Bari Brooks
Center for teens at the Frank
G. Berlin Sr. Branch on Euclid
Avenue. The center is a safe
place for teens to enjoy games


with friends after school and
on weekends.
This year's race brings the
three-year total raised to
$147,000, Mills said. In 2003,
race proceeds went to the
Bari Brooks Center for teens.
In 2004, race organizers com-
mitted all proceeds to help
rebuild the Charlotte County
YMCA Preschool Center that
provides daily care for 100
children. The building had
been severely damaged by
Hurricane Charley.
Sarasota County Parks and
Recreation and the Sarasota
Family YMCA sponsor the
annual race, which drew
1,500 participants in a 5K run
and one-mile Fun Walk.
Awards were given to all age

groups, with some partici-
pants almost 90 years old.

What it takes to be a jerk


ftq


DAVE BARRY
HUMOR COLUMNIST

This classic Dave Barry
column was originally pub-
lished Sept. 29, 1996.

Recently, when I was hav-
ing a hamburger at an out-
door restaurant, two guys
started up their Harley-
Davidson motorcycles,
parked maybe 25 feet from
me.
Naturally, being Harley
guys, these were rebels -
lone wolves, guys who do it
Their Way, guys who do not
follow the crowd. You could
tell because they were wear-
ing the same jeans, jackets,
boots, bandannas, sunglass-
es, belt buckles, tattoos and
(presumably) underwear
worn by roughly 28 million
other lone-wolf Harley guys.
And, of course, once they
got their engines started, they
had to spend the equivalent
of two college semesters just
sitting there, revving their
engines, which were so ear-
bleedinglyloud that I thought
my hamburger was going to
leap from my plate and skit-
ter, terrified, back into the
kitchen.
I believe many Harley guys
spend more time revving
their engines than actually
driving anywhere; I some-
times wonder why they both-
er to have wheels on their
motorcycles.
Perhaps you, too, have
experienced an assault of
Harley-revving; and perhaps


you have asked yourself: Why
do these people DO this?
What possible reason could
they have for causing so
much discomfort to those
around them? As it happens,
there IS a reason, and it is an
excellent one: They're jerks.
I'm not saying that ALL
Harley guys some of my
friends are Harley guys -
engage in this obnoxious
behavior.
I'm just saying that the
ones who DO engage in it are
jerks. And I am not afraid to
tell them so, even if they are
large and hairy and potential-
ly violent.
I am not afraid to say: "OK,
Mr. Loud Harley Guy, you got
a problem with me calling
you a jerk? You want to DO
something about it? You want
to express your disagreement,
by tapping out lengthy Morse
Code sentences on my skull
with a tire iron? Then why
don't you if you have the
guts come see me PER-
SONALLY at my place of
employment, located at 1600
Pennsylvania Ave., Wash-
ington, D.C.? Come on if you
dare, fat boy! Ride right into
the lobby!"
And let me also say, while
I'm at-it, that I'm sick of you
people who park in spaces
reserved for the handi-
capped, even though you are
not, personally, handicapped.
You know who you are.
Many of you even have
those little rearview-mirror
handicapped signs, whic'i
you got from a friend or rela-
tive, or which you once need-
ed because of some tempo-,
rary medical condition that
has long since been cleared
up.
One of my hobbies is to
watch when cars pull into
handicapped parking spots,
and see who gets out.
Very often, in my experi-
ence, these people appear to
be totally unhandicapped: No


wheelchair, no crutches, not
even a trace of a limp. I realize
that some of these people
have problems, such as heart
conditions, that are not visi-
ble.
But some of them, to judge
by the sprightliness of their
walks, are off to compete in
the decathlon. Their only
handicap is: They're jerks.
What we need in this
country I would pay extra
income tax for this is an
elite corps of \Handicapped
Parker On-Site Medical Ex-
amination SWAT Teams.
These teams would prowl
the streets, wearing rubber
gloves and armed with X-ray
machines, CT scanners,
scalpels, drills, saws and har-
poon-sized hypodermic nee-
dles.
When a team spotted a
handicapped-zone parker
who could not immediately
prove that he or she was
handicapped, that person
would immediately undergo
.a severely thorough on-the-
street physical examination
conducted by burly person-
nel who have attended med-
ical school for a maximum of
four hours including lunch
("Hey Norm! Which ones are
the kidneys again?").
These examinations would
involve full frontal nudity and
the removal of enough blood,
organ and tissue samples to
form a complete new human;
also, if the SWAT team found
a Harley guy revving his
engine in a handicapped-
parking zone, it would
employ the 250-foot intesti-
nal probe nicknamed "Big
Bertha."
The idea would be that if
you weren't qualified to park
in a handicapped zone
BEFORE the physical exami-
nation, you definitely would
be AFTER.
And let's talk about you
people who always send your
food back in restaurants. (I


KNOW this has nothing to do
with handicapped parking; I
can't stop myself.)
I mean, sure, if the food is
truly BAD, if it has RODENTS
running around on it, OK,
send it back; but what about
you people who ALWAYS
send your food back, thereby
turning EVERY SINGLE
MEAL into an exercise in con-
sumer whining?
I'm sorry! You're jerks!
Especially if, when the bill
comes, .you also ALWAYS
insist even if everybody
ordered basically the same
thing on figuring out your
EXACT share ("Well, I had the
Diet Sprite, which is 10 cents
less than the iced tea...."); and
then you decide that a 5 per-
cent tip is adequate, thereby
forcing your friends, who are
embarrassed, to put in more
money.
Listen carefully to what I
am about to tell you. Put your
ear right down to the page:
YOUR FRIENDS HATE IT
WHEN YOU STIFF THE
WAITER. IF THE SERVICE IS
OK, YOU SHOULD TIP 15
PERCENT. IF YOU DON'T
WANT TO TIP, THEN DON'T
EAT AT RESTAURANTS.
Also, you should never,
ever, no matter what, butt in
front of people waiting in line
without asking their permis-
sion. Also, if, when you talk to
people, they keep backing
away from you, it's because
you're TOO CLOSE, all right?
SO DON'T KEEP ADVANC-
ING ON THEM LIKE A
HUMAN GLACIER.
Thank you, and I apologize
for using so many capital let-
ters. I can be a real jerk about
that.

Lawn-care tips by

Basic Landscaping


BY CAROL MOZIK
GARDEN COLUMNIST


P.J. from Basic Land-
scaping is, finding diseases
showing up during these
"drought" conditions. Please
water lawns in the morning
between 6 a.m. and 11 a.m.
for best watering effective-
ness. Check your city and
county watering restrictions'
as to what day(s) of the week
you can water. Make sure
your rain gauge (or tuna can)
registers 1 inch of rain every 7


to 14 days. To dispel any
myths: Afternoon watering
causes burning and night
watering causes diseases
such as fungus and mold.
Questions? Call EJ. at 504-
3307.

VENICE AREA YOUNG PROFESSIONALS
Venice is joining with numerous cities around the World by forming
its own Young Professional Group. What is a Young Professionals Group?
Most groups consist of members 21-40 years in age and focus on
networking and issues that affect that specific age range. Why a Young
Professionals Group? Young Professionals Groups help connect young
professionals to their community. Generally, when young professionals
feel they can make a difference in their community, they are 2-3 times as
likely to stay.
The Venice Area Young Professionals are under the umbrella of the
Venice Area Chamber of Commerce. From June through August, VAYP
will be open to ALL area working professionals ages 21 40,

be achieved through monthly networking events, outreach to youth
programs and schools, hosting professional growth seminars, attending
local and state government sessions, and getting involved with fund
raisers. Our monthly events will be held the first Thursday of every
month. The VAYP committee meets the first Monday of every month at

SMITH BARNEY


DON HAY SMITH BARNEY
Our Chamber is extremely fortunate to have many fine members that have established
strong business and community values. The Education and Business Development
Committee proudly recognizes an outstanding member who's professional dedication
to his business career and unselfish consistent devotion to community welfare is
known by all. The following letter exemplifies those virtues.
"I've known Don Hay of Smith Barney for many, many years and have found him to
b~ nr, eTample tor ill cl u'. H~c t'uin.e;i .':. urnr-r i couli~tinding and r hi: C:mmimrrtrreni
'to his clients and their needs, is commendable.
Don's dedication to civic responsibilities can be found in many arenas. He currently
teaches a Junior Achievement Class; is a Board member of VeniceArea Beautification,
Inc., and Gulf Coast Community Foundation of Venice. He has served on the Economic
Development Corporation Board, former President of the Venice Area Chamber of
Commerce, and many more through out the years. It is Don Hay, though his thought
provoking ideas and leadership, that brings funds to non-profits as was evidenced in
the pigs coming to Venice for the Venice Art Center and Sertoma Clubs first wine fest.
From announcing Santa's parade to MC'ing many Charity functions, Don encourages
other to enjoy and participate in Venice activities."
The writer concludes: "For as long as I have known Don, he has never rested on his
laurels. He continues to see a need and looks for a solution, not only for his clients
but for his community. He is a role model for those in business."
Smith Barney is located at 333 Tamiami Trial South, Suite 199 in the Tandem Center
on the Island of Venice.

Pine View students learn the anatomy of a hospital


BY COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER

Members of Andrea
Tirabassi's fourth-grade class
at the Pine .View School
recently toured Venice Re-
gional Medical Center as part
of their studies on the human
body.
Hospital personnel divided
the children into five groups,
each group taking a specific
department of the hospital.
Their task was to learn each
department's importance
and report back to their class
as to why their department
was the best. The depart-
ments included the cath lab,
operating room, lab, radiolo-
gy and orthopedics.
Dressed in lab coats com-
plete with badges specific to
their departments, the stu-
dents took off like a shot to
explore their departments.
A group of four students,
one parent and one reporter
was led up to the cath lab by
Tim Mitchell, director of car-
diology. Once inside the ward
that housed cardiac patients
recuperating from recent
surgeries, Angela Khan, R.N.,
explained what happens in
the cath lab.
"The catheter is inserted
through a hole in the .groin
area and put into the heart to
help when there is a block-


age," Khan said, explaining
how a heart attack can be pre-
vented.
Mouths dropped as the
students absorbed the infor-
mation like sponges and
wanted to learn more. Many
believed to reach the heart, it
was necessary to crack open
the chest. Khan instructed
that this is not necessary
when installing a catheter or a
pacemaker.
After some discussion on
what pacemakers do and why
they are necessary, the group
followed Mitchell to the actu-
al surgical area and saw the
equipment used to take pic-
tures of beating hearts. The
students oohed and awed as a
moving picture of a beating
heart appeared before them.
Quick as a whip, one student
asked, "Can we see what an
unhealthy heart looks like?"
Her request was granted, and
the students got to see the dif-
ference between a blocked
heart and a healthy one.
The highlight of the tour
was when the students were
permitted to see how doctors
and nurses prepared to insert
a defibrillator into a patient.
The patient's identity was
concealed, but the students
showed much concern for the
woman undergoing the pro-

European academy earns place'


in national Scholastic contest


Sarasota charter middle school


to compete in mental olympics


STAFF REPORT

European Academy of Ear-
ly Education in Nokomis has,
earned a runner-up prize in
the Scholastic Book Fairs
national "Enter The Kingdom
of Reading" contest, winning
a $1,000 gift certificate from
Scholastic, the global chil-
dren's publishing, education
and media company. The
semi-annual competition en-
courages schools to create
contests, design book dis-
plays, host activities and
develop themed events, all
aimed at getting kids to read.
More than 3,000 schools par-
ticipated in the contest.
'During the Scholastic Book
Fair held last fall, European
Academy promoted its book


fair festival in the community
with clever flyers showing
students dressed as knights
and princesses. During the
festival, students played "pin
the fire on- the dragon" and
took part in a princess and
knighting ceremony.
Scholastic Book Fairs pres-
ident, Alan Boyko, praised the
level of enthusiasm and com-
petitive spirit shown. by
European Academy of Early
Education and other schools
across the country involved
in the book fair program.
"Book Fairs plays an im-
portant role in helping fulfill
our company's 85-year mis-
sion to ensure that every child
has access to fun-to-read,
affordable books that will
encourage a love of reading,"


said Boyko. i(From the way1
these, khol6 have embraced'
the contest, it's evident we're
accomplishing our goal, to
connect young minds with
the excitement of books and
the thrill of reading."
Scholastic awarded gift
certificates to 16 runners up,
including European Academy
of Early Education, while four
schools in New York, Ohio-
and Hawaii earned grand-
prize awards for the contest
- a visit by award-winning
author Pam Munoz Ryan and
a $2,500 Scholastic gift certifi-
cate.
Additionally, 135 third-
place entrants will receive a
"Welcome to Our Library"
doormat from Scholastic
Book Fairs.


STAFF REPORT


A winning team of young
students representing the
Sarasota School of Arts and
Sciences will compete in the
World Odyssey of the Mind
Tournament finals May 24-27
at Iowa State University in
Ames, Iowa. The team of
seven youngsters was the
winner of the preliminary
regional competition among
260 Florida schools.
Round one of the competi-
tion was to build a weight-
bearing structure made solely
of balsa wood, glue, paper
and their own imagination.
And it could weigh only 1/2


ounce. Their winning con-
struction supported 528
pounds without breaking a
major accomplishment for
seventh and eighth graders
with no engineering training.
This was followed by a sur-
prise assignment to use plas-
tic cups, a block of wood, clay,
tape and spaghetti noodles to
build a ramp in eight minutes
that would transport ping
pong, tennis and golf balls
into a bucket. The Sarasota
team succeeded and quali-
fied to compete along with
7,000 other youngsters from
throughout the U.S. and from
selected Asian and European
countries in the finals.


One probm'n ,remains -
'while the team and chaper-
ones will be housed in Un-
iversity dormitories during
the finals, they will require air
transport to Ames, Iowa. No-
frills utilitarian airfares will be
used, but the cost is still more
than can be borne entirely by
parents and friends.
Interested parties are
being asked to make tax-
deductible donations payable
to Sarasota School of Arts and
Sciences, Odyssey Team, 645
Central Ave., Sarasota, 34236.
For more information,
contact the Sarasota School
of Arts and Sciences at 330-

department was the most
important, they gradually
realized that a hospital needs
all of its departments in order

Ultimately, the students
were given a collective view of
what lengths a hospital goes
to in order to help people, and
they learned that there is
more to the human body
than simply learning all the
parts.

Musical demonstrations
Musicians from every, sec-

have been visiting elemen-
tary schools in the Venice area
for several months. The musi-
cians demonstrate their in-
struments and perform for
third-grade students. Con-
ductor Wesley John Schu-
macher makes a separate
presentation, explaining the
fundamentals of the physics
of sound and music through
the use of instruments, hoses,
and tuned water-filled bot-
tles. Following this series of
five presentations in each
school, students and their


teachers are invited to one of
two full symphonic concerts
May 5 at North Port Per-
forming Arts Center. The con-
cert is carefully crafted to
appeal to the third graders,
most of whom are attending a
classical concert for the first
time. More than 1,000 attend-
ed last year. The concerts,
transportation, and in-school
presentations are funded by
the Venice Symphony and
gifts and grants from the
community. Venice Sym-
phony hopes to expand the
lives of these young students
to include the excitement of
the world of music.

to see her painting at the
Venice Jetties. Suzie and about
20 other artists set up easels
around town and painted

things that make Venice beau-
tiful. They gathered at the

These two women lived in
Venice for years and have
since retired to other places.
The party included artists
Mary Erickson, Heather
McCullough and Karen Hitt.
Susan Hines, Debbie
Lawrence, Phil and Dorothy
Korwek and Joan McGill sam-
pled the delicious food pro-
vided by Northern Trust cater-
ing and enjoyed mingling with
friends.
Art Center board members
Barbara Freeman, Bonnie

a huge bravo for this great pro-
ject. Be sure to visit the Venice
Center for a schedule of com-
ing events including summer
classes.

perfect way to feature a won-
derful quiet Florida get-
together. This owner of the

for a charming backyard party.
President of the group,
