Citys 'humble' servant says good-bye


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

With a pound of the gavel
Tuesday night, Mayor Dean
Calamaras completed nearly
three decades of serving the
city of Venice.
There were no tears during
the Venice City Council meet-
ing, though there appeared to
be a moment right before
striking the gavel when
Calamaras said, "It's with a
great deal of regret I strike this


gavel for the last time."
Immediately after the
meeting, when asked for
comment just outside the
mayor's office, Calamaras
admitted he came close to
tears.
"Even now, it's hitting and
a bit emotional," Calamaras
said. "It's very difficult walk-
ing away from 28 years of
your life. There's a tremen-
dous amount of emotion. It's
hard."
The three-term mayor


announced six weeks ago he
was retiring a year early be-
causeI his house had sold
sooner than expected.
Calamaras, 61, and his
wife, Barbara, plan to leave
next week for the North
Georgia area. Their daughter
and a grandchild live in
Decatur, Ga.
About 100 people attended
a reception and light roasting
of the mayor at Venice
Community Center.
Many of the formal recog-


nations came during the city
council meeting, when coun-
cil members, the planning
commission and Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce all
presented plaques in his
honor.
Community members also
took turns praising Calamar-
as for his work creating Ven-
ice's architectural standards,
leading the beach renourish-
ment effort and acting as a

City wants to


redo Sharky's lease

U.S. 41 north and southbound in Venice was closed to traffic Tuesday afternoon when an underground gas leak occurred.
Firefighters consulted with TECO personnel at the scene. The road was reopened at 5:30 p.m. after the leak was capped.
See more photos on Page 3A.


City Manager Marty Black
wants to challenge a contract
clause that guarantees expan-
sion approval for Sharky's On
The Pier restaurant.
And he's willing to give up
more than $1 million to do so,
all in hoping for a higher
return down the road.
Venice City Council mem-
bers agreed with Black, and
voted 7-0 to ask a judge to
decide if the lease agreement
between the city and Pier
Group Inc., owned by Greg
Novack and Mike Pachota, is
an enforceable contract.
"Under this existing agree-
ment, it's not in the best inter-
est of the city," Black said be-
fore Tuesday's council meet-
ing.
The most controversial
portion guarantees expan-
sion approval of the 20-year-
old beachfront restaurant if
Sharky's pays for half of a pro-
ject to add a pavilion, public
restrooms and parking lot
next to the restaurant and
Venice Fishing Pier. City


TALKING MONEY
The airport lease with Sharky's
restaurant is divided into two
parts, one for the land itself
and the second based on
gross revenue. Here is the
breakdown for 2004's pay-
ment, which is based on sales
in 2003.
* Gross sales $5.1 million
* Minus base ($300,000) -
$4.8 million
- City share 5 percent
* Amount paid Dec. 31, 2003
- $240,765, plus land lease
of $12,000.

council approved construc-
tion on the $2.1 million pro-
ject Tuesday.
During the meeting, coun-
cil member John Moore was
the most critical of the lease
and made the motion. Venice
will ask a circuit court judge
to issue a ruling on the lease's
validity, while at the same
time, attempt to reopen the

offerings, say school office

BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Venice High officials have
found a way to protect most
school programs in spite of a
10-percent hit to the school
budget under a district re-
alignment plan announced
last month.
The school has to make up
for an anticipated $1 million
shortfall from its $10 million
budget, mostly because the
school expects 120 fewer stu-
dents. Anticipated enroll-
ment for the 2006-07 school
year is 2,100 students.
District officials reduced
allocations for the school
budget from 180 school posi-
tions to 162 positions.
The realignment is design-
ed to increase class sizes in
line with the constitutional
class-size amendment ratio
of 25:1 in high schools. Venice
High's current ratio is 23:1.
Venice High will lose fund-
ing for three math teachers,
two phys ed instructors, and a
position each in social stud-
ies, technology, physical edu-
cation, art and foreign lan-
guage. Most of those posi-
tions will be refilled by shuf-
fling around existing staff
under a budget realignment

plan adopted by the Venice
High School Advisory Com-
mittee last night.
"We'll be making do with
less," said Wayne Robinson,
SAC member and the school's
data coach.


"We were heavy on
support staff com-
pared to other
schools. "
VHS Principle
Candice Millington,
commenting on losing
two support positions



Five positions wont be re-
filled. Those staff will be bump-
ed to other positions within the
district, and eligible for rehire
rights within the school. They
include a phys ed position,
French language teacher and a
CTE technology position.
VHS Principle Candice
Millington said fewer stu-
dents were taking phys ed
classes. Ditto for French class,
which won't be offered next
year, although the school is

considering a Japanese or
Chinese language course in
the future in response to stu-
dent inquiries. The Principles
of Technology instructional
position will be cut, but will
likely be replaced by a Digital
Design class offered by re-
maining technology staff,
Millington said.
Heavy on support
In addition to three in-
structional positions, two
support positions will be
eliminated.
"We were heavy on sup-
port staff compared to other
schools," Millington said.
The school's participatory
management team, which
developed the revised bud-
get, relied on attrition to
make up for the lion's share of
the shortfall, including two
retirements, three resigna-
tions and the nonrenewal of
two one-year contracts. State
Advanced Placement monies
and county funds also helped
cushion the blow.
Under scaled-back enroll-
ment projections throughout
Sarasota County School Dis-
trict, an estimated 200 school
jobs could be transferred
from North County to South
County schools. North Port
schools will benefit most.
The district has promised
no one would lose their job
over the budget realignments.


'FISH'-y language could

delay interlocal agreement

Sarasota County School Board wants its way in
defining school capacity and the right to build in
rural designations.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County School
Board got a few last-minute
surprises Tuesday when
members reviewed a new
draft of the Interlocal Agree-
ment between Sarasota
County, Sarasota County
School Board,
and sur-
rounding cit-
ies of Venice,
North Port


Key.
SChool o
board mem-
bers thought Todd
they had
agreed to using one definition
of school capacity, but found
out consultants are now rec-
ommending another. The dif-
ference could have far-reach-
ing implications.
School capacity helps trig-
ger when and how much
developers have to contribute
to building new schools.
The board wants to use
"permanent program capaci-


ty" but consultants say the
Department of Community
Affairs is requiring "perma-
nent FISH (Florida Inventory
of School Houses) capacity.",
("Permanent" indicates the,
calculation includes porta-,
bles.)
FISH capacity is deter-
mined by the Department of
Education:
based on the
number of
student seats
allowable per
classroom.
Program
capacity is de-.
fined as closer
to being the
Norris actual num-
ber of stu-
dents who fill those seats.
Ken Marsh, who leads the
concurrency effort at the
school district, told the board
he didn't have the manpower
or time to calculate program
capacity and meet the June 1
deadline. Without valid data,
consultants say, the DCA
won't accept an agreement

Ever wonder how people
get H5N1, the deadly bird flu
virus?
There are several ways,
doctors say, but one is by in-
haling a particle carrying the
virus. A person walks through
a yard filled with dried chicken
excrement. Little dust clouds
are kicked up. Unwitting
inhalation follows.
The lungs receive the virus.
In some rural areas, chick-
ens roam free.
The other day in Nocatee,
a riding lawnmower, moved
over a yard parched from lack
of rain. Clouds of dust blew
from under the lawnmower.
The man atop the mower
was not wearing a dust mask.

Speed bump pricing hearing


Two VHS teens

hospitalized after crash


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

A potentially controversial.
move to attempt to limit the
number of free traffic-calming
devices in Sarasota County
comes up for a public hearing
Wednesday.
The issue came to a head
in February, after bitter com-
plaints from the residents of
Gondola Drive in Jacaranda
West who want traffic-calm-
ing devices namely speed
tables or large speed bumps
- were told they couldn't
have as many as the county
staff recommended.
The result is that the coun-
ty decided it needed to start,
charging for some of the
devices through a tier system.
That system would have
made the Gondola, Drive
residents have to pay up a
quarter of the costs for their
speed tables.
At 1:30 p.m. Wednesday,


the commissioners will hold a
public hearing aimed at es-
tablishing a new tiered sys-
tem that would curb the num-
ber of speed-control devices.
The board has been con-
cerned with the speed tables
becoming the only. solution
for neighborhoods that want
to slow or deter traffic.
, They believe there are
other alternatives to slowing
traffic down, including edu-
cation or repainting the lines
on a road. "
The Gondola Drive project
is exempt from the new pric-
ing, but the original proposal
for eight speed tables on a
stretch of road less than a
mile long raised a red flag for
the board. 'This was viewed as
a community taking advan-
tage of the county's generosity.
This tier system will allow,
for a sharing of costs for five
of the most popular of the
so-called "traffic-calming" op-
tions, including speed cush-


ions; neckdowns; raised
crosswalks without brick sur-
face; speed tables without
brick surface; and speed
tables with imprint.
The county will pay 75 per-
cent of the costs, while a local
public improvement district
would pay the balance.
The board has supported
the idea in hopes it would
force communities to be in-
vested in the projects. This is
in place of the communities
receiving all types of traffic
devices free of charge.
The county set aside about
$1.25 million for the program,
agreeing to pay all of the
costs for some projects, while
agreeing to split the costs 50-
50 on more expensive pro-
jects, said county Traffic
Engineer Don Galloway.
The free projects are for
simple things, such as signs
or street-line painting. The
50-50 projects are larger
speed tables and intersection


changes.
Galloway said the speed
tables are the most popular
program and have been built
free to the public when re-
quested and approved by the
Traffic Advisory Council.
The board agreed to charge
for more of the programs to
force a change in the ap-
proach by various, neighbor-
hood programs to address
traffic problems.
At least one commissioner
said the program is setting
up false expectations for peo-
ple in the communities that
receive these benefits. An-
other said the board is power-
less in what it can do to
change the behavior of the
driving public.
The public hearing is being
held to formalize the tiered
system as a county ordinance.
The hearing is at 1:30 p.m.
*at the Sarasota County Ad-
ministration Center, 1660
Ringling Blvd., Sarasota.


Sarasota County watering days could change


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Once-a-week watering re-
strictions have been in effect
in Sarasota County since 2000
and the days have remained
virtually unchanged at Tues-
day and Sunday.
Tuesday watering is for
those with an even-numbered
address: house numbers end-
ing with 0, 2, 4, 6, and 8.
Sunday water is for those
with an odd-numbered ad-
dress: house numbers ending
with 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9.
That second day is where
the problem lies.
With so many people
home, doing what people do,
the demand for water reaches
a peak on the weekends. Add

lawns, and ihe
periodic strain
supply distribu
On WVednesd i% oun ty
commissioners will be asked
to reconsider the Sunday wa-
tering day for an alternative
for those with odd numbered
address.
While no formal decision
will be made, the board will
be asked to allow a new
ordinance to be devised to
change the watering days to
even out the demand and
ensure adequate pressure in
distribution lines.
Formal changes may not
take place until later in the
year, after the dry season.
These restrictions apply
whether the source of water


is a well, pond, or from a utili-
ty system.
No irrigation is allowed
between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
The maximum amount of
water is limited to three-
quarters of an inch in each
irrigation zone, once, on each
allowable watering day.
Other rules
There are some exceptions
to the general, once-a-week
watering rules.
.Flower beds, vegetable
gardens and other non-lawn
areas may be irrigated as
needed using a hand-watering
device with a shut-off nozzle.
These areas may also be
watered using micro-irriga-
tion and other forms of hort-
iculture appropriate, low-


volume irrigation, on any day
of the week.
Newly planted lawn and
landscape areas I may be
watered any day of the week
for a 60-day establishment
period that begins the day
that the plant material is
installed. However, no irriga-
tion is permitted between 10
a.m. and 4 p.m.
The board meeting is 9
a.m. at the at die Sarasota
County Administration Cen-
ter, 1660 Ringling Blvd., in
Sarasota.

Call Center at 861-5000 and

Service.


Two 16-year-old Venice
High students suffered serious
injuries Saturday night in a
one-vehicle wreck.
Chloe West and Katie
Mathews, both players in the
Venice High girls basketball
program, were airlifted to
Bayfront. Medical Center in
St. Petersburg following the
late night crash.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol:
At about, 10 p.m., West,
who lives in North Port, was
driving her 1998 Ford Explor-
er south on Interstate 75
when she turned off the ramp
toward Jacaranda Boulevard.
She lost control of the ve-


hide, which started spinning.
The vehicle overturned and
went airborne, hitting the
median and overturning
again.
West was wearing her seat
belt. She was in serious con-
dition after being admitted.
Mathews, of South Venice,
was also flown to Bayfront
with critical injuries. She was
not wearing her seat belt.
Bayfront declined to re-
lease information about the
girls' condition Tuesday.
Charges are pending.
Friends and family of the
girls held a prayer service at
First Baptist Church on the
island Sunday.

Taking the FCAT, again


Spring cleaning


Only one in 10 of
Florida's 10th-graders
who failed FCAT
Reading was able to
pass it on a second try;
Sarasota County did
better, with 30 percent
passing the retake.

BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

By definition, high school-
ers who struggle in school
have the most difficulty pass-
ing the Florida Comprehen-
sive Assessment Test. What is
surprising is how few pass the
exam after retaking it.
Many eventually pass, but
it can take numerous tries.
And failing the exam over and
over is not uncommon.
According to the Florida
Department of Education, no
more than 20 percent of 10th-,
llth- or 12th-graders who
retook the spring 2006 FCAT
Reading exam passed it.
Only 10 percent of Florida
students who were retained
in 10th grade and who retook
the test (out of a total 5,762
students) were successful; 17
percent (out of 51,567 stu-
dents) of juniors retaking the
exam passed, and 14 percent
(out of 23,129) of seniors
passed, DOE statistics reveal.
Sarasota County FCAT
Reading retake scores were
similar, with the exception of
10th-graders.
While only 10 percent of
Florida's retained 10th-grad-
ers passed the retake, 30 per-
cent of Sarasota County's 50
students who took it passed.
Eighteen percent of 712
county llth-graders passed,


while 16 percent of 287 se-
niors retaking the exam
passed.
District officials didn't have
a reason why Sarasota County
appeared to do better, and
cautioned the small number
of students counted may
have as much as anything to
do with apparent gains.
State and county math
retake scores were similar,
again with the exception of
Sarasota County 10th-graders
who passed in greater num-
bers comparatively (35 per-
cent) than the state average
(25 percent).
Statewide, 33 percent of
thb 26,399 11th-graders who
retook the math exam passed;
29 percent for the state's
10,782 seniors.
In Sarasota County, rough-
ly a third of the 308 juniors
who retook math passed; dit-
to for a group of 111 seniors
who retook the test.
More study needed
Last week's release of third-
grade FCAT Reading scores
showed a remarkable one-
year gain in Sarasota County.
It was the largest increase
in the percentage of students
demonstrating reading com-
prehension proficiency since
2002, said officials.
The district saw a signifi-
cant decline in the number of
third-graders who failed
FCAT reading from 495
students in 2005 to only 327
students in 2006.
District officials attributed
the decline in students failing
the FCAT, in part, to K-three
diagnostic assessments and
interventions.
The same kinds of assess-
ments are used at the high
school level, but the results
thus far appear to be incon-


clusive.
District administrators say
they plan on collecting more
data on students who retake
the FCATs to get a better han-
dle on their needs.
The rules
No student is allowed to
receive a standard high
school diploma from a Flor-
ida public school unless the
student has passed FCAT
Reading and Mathematics
Sunshine State Standards
portion of the Grade 10 FCAT,
according to DOE. The de-
partment gives the following
information on graduation
options.
Students.who meet district
level requirements but do not
pass the Grade 10 FCAT
receive a Certificate of Com-
pletion, which is not equiva-
lent to a standard high school
diploma.
Students can retake the
FCAT as many times as they
want until they pass it. The
can even enroll for a free 13th
year of high school to receive
additional instruction.
But they have only six op-
portunities to pass the Grade
10 FCAT prior to graduation;
students who do not pass the
FCAT in the spring of their
sophomore year may retest in
fall, spring, and summer of
their junior and senior years.
A senior can graduate by
receiving a score comparable
to the FCAT passing score on
the ACT or SAT, but the stu-
dents must have failed the
Grade 10 FCAT three times for
the rule to apply.There is an
exception for students new to
the public school system in
their senior year. I

DELAY from Page 1lA


based on program capacity.
District officials say using
FISH capacity overstates en-
rollment at a school, and
could, at least theoretically,
delay plans to build a new
school by an undetermined
period of time, perhaps by
years.
Board chair Carol Todd
was ready to recommend
delaying final adoption of the
interlocal agreement from
June 1 to July 1, but Super-


intendent Gary Norris step-
ped in and offered to do
whatever it takes over the
next few days to calculate
program capacity school by
school.
"We'll have it for you,"
Norris told the board.
Showdown brewing
Meanwhile, there still is no
agreement on an outstanding
issue about where schools
can be built. Language in the
draft interlocal agreement
appears to include a county


stipulation that prohibits
building schools in areas that
are designated rural.
The district says that does-
n't comply with state statutes,
and could interfere with
appropriate siting of schools.
In a letter to the DCA on
Feb. 7, associate superinten-
dent Bob Earley wrote that it
is the school district's con-
tention comprehensive plan
amendments "would signifi-
cantly limit the school dis-
trict's ability to provide ade-
quate and reasonably proxi-


mate schools and classrooms
for the county's growing
school-age population."
The board of county com-
missioners says it needs the
latitude to restrict growth.
Elected officials, city man-
agers and top administrators
from around the county will
meet again Friday at the
Venice Community Center to
finalize revisions that address
school concurrency.
New law -requires local
governments to adopt a pub-
lic school facilities element


into interlocal agreements,
and may require residential
developers to set aside lands
for future schools. Sarasota
County is one of six school
districts participating in a
pilot program to implement
the plan sooner than the
required 2008 deadline.
The new law requires each
county and city to update
interlocal agreements to add
school capacity to compre-
hensive plans.'
Under concurrency rules,
local governments can deny


development if nearby
schools are unable to handle
the number of children that
would be projected to come
from the new homes.
Each pilot district is ex-
pected to write a draft inter-
local agreement with munici-
palities that addresses school
capacity plans by June.

LEASE from Page 1 A


lease agreement in order to
remove the expansion clause.
For years Moore has criti-
cized the lease agreement
because it is "revenue-neu-
tral," meaning the city is not
guaranteed more money
when the restaurant prospers.
"The bottom line is, it's a
very bad lease with no cost of
living increases for 40 years,"
the retired judge said.
In neutral
Pachota, who attended the
council meeting, said he
"needed to digest" what
council members were saying
and declined to comment.
Before council's action,
however, he contradicted the
contention that the lease is
"revenue neutral."
The complicated contract
is broken into two parts, the

first being a land lease (base
rent) and the second on
restaurant sales (gross rev-
enue).
In 2004, the base rent for
Sharky's was $1,000 per
month for an annual total of
$12,000. The city also receives
5 percent of gross revenues
that exceed $300,000; in 2004,
that equated to nearly
$241,000 in rent. Sharky's had
$5.1 million in sales that year,
according to city records.
Whatever percentage the
base rent is increased, then
the gross revenue amount
($300,000) also is increased.


Pachota contends this section
was added to guarantee the
city so much money every
year, but Moore and Black are
among those who consider it
a bad deal drafted by the for-
mer city manager and finance
director.
"It's not like we haven't
been a good tenant," said
Pachota, referring to the more
than $252,000 paid in rent in
2004. "It's been 20 years and
we feel it's worked well so far."
The only airport rentals
generating more revenue in
2004 were the mobile home
park ($430,0001 and T-hang-


ars ($341,000). Lake Venice
Golf Club came in fourth,
bringing in $202,000 in air-
port rent.
Big plans
Sharky's originally signed
the lease agreement in 1986
to build and operate a restau-
rant next to the Venice
Fishing Pier, which is on air-
port property controlled by
the city. About a third of the
restaurant's rent money goes
toward airport operations,
and the rest is for fishing pier


maintenance.
Allof this talk of lease rene-
gotiations comes while
Sharky's is attempting to ex-
pand operations and the city
tries to finish building a new
beachfront park before per-
mits expire in May 2007.
Before council's vote, the
restaurant owners had in-
tended to reveal their most
recent expansion plans to
council members at the May
23 meeting. It was not known
if Sharky's will still be on that
agenda.


A year ago, concept plans
submitted to the city showed
the restaurant expanding
from its current 285 restau-
rant seats to 575. The restau-
rant would go from 10,180 to
19,265 square feet, and a sec-
ond story and a new pavilion
building would be added.

Scientists split over warming's impact on hurricanes


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

The two sides of the argu-
ment about the relationship
between global warming and
the impact on hurricanes are
very passionate about the
issue.
But they agree to disagree,
and they agree that more data
are needed to prove the issue
one way or the other.
The debate was one of the
last events at the 28th annual
National Hurricane Confer-
ence recently in Orlando.
Even renowned hurricane
forecaster William Gray
chimed in on this controver-
sial issue.
The primary debate was
between James O'Brien,
director of the Center for
Ocean-Atmospheric
Prediction Studies and pro-
fessor of meteorology and
oceanography at Florida State
University, and Judith Curry,
chair of the Georgia Tech
School of Earth & Atmo-
spheric Sciences.
O'Brien contends there is
no link between global warm-
ing and hurricanes.
"As far as I can tell, the
number of total hurricanes is
not increasing," he said.
"There is no indication of
warming in hurricane-form-
ing regions (of the Atlantic
basin). There is no obvious
warming."
Looking back over 150
years of hurricane data shows
that strong hurricanes have
always occurred in a regular
multi-decadal pattern, and
they will likely continue to
occur in the same pattern,
O'Brien said.
Curry argues that since
1970, the impacts of people
have doubled the number of
hurricanes in the Atlantic
basin. She directly relates this
to a 1-degree increase in sea-
surface temperatures during
the same period.
"This implies external forc-
ing rather than internal vari-
ability," she said. "There is a
divergence between what is
supposed to be versus what it
is."
Since 1970, she claims,
there has been a 50-percent
increase in all storms and a
doubling in the number of
category 4 and 5 storms -
storms with maximum sus-
tained winds in excess of 135
mph.
"We are under a triple
whammy as sea-surface tem-
peratures are going to rise
substantially," Curry said. She
also described the conver-
gence of factors that would
create a peak of storms in
2015.
But O'Brien finds fault in
most data that' purportedly
connect global warming to
hurricanes because no global
climate model includes hurri-
canes.
"Hurricanes are an interac-
tion with the environment,"
he said. "They are plugged in
when they form and help pre-
dict direction, but little else."
He said that if anyone tried
to look at sea-surface temper-
atures for more. than a week,
they would observe too much
variability.
"Ocean water can't get
warmer than 31.5 degrees
Celsius, so if global warming
were taking place, the area of
warm water would be
greater," he said.
Curry said the changes in
hurricane activity go beyond
the past 35 years, arguing that
the peak activity now is 50
percent greater than the last
peak of activity in the 1950s.
She also said the length of the
hurricane season has extend-
ed by an average of 4.8 days
per decade in the past 100
years, meaning there are 48
more days of hurricane activi-
ty than in 1905.
Gray, a professor at Colo-
rado State University, argues
all of that is wrong.
"There is so much foolish-
ness for human-induced
global warming," he said. "I


could see how people could
think there is a relationship.
But if that were true, we
would see a significant in-
crease in rainfall around the
globe, and there is no signifi-


cant change."
He cited articles written in
the 1970s predicting the next
"ice age."
"I think it is almost totally
natural, and in my view it's
going to stand the test of
time," he said. "Irresponsible
people are out there trying to


alert the general public. I
think this global warming
hysteria will pass."
He argues that global tem-
peratures will be cooler in 20
years.
"This activity is due to
ocean circulation changes,
which are multi-decadal in


nature," Gray said. "When
you go beyond 14 days of pre-
' dicting water temperatures, it
becomes a can of worms."
The latest wave has been
active since 1995. The period
between 1970 and 1994 saw
the opposite circulation, and
there was a dramatic de-


crease in hurricane activity.
"If it were .true global
warming, then why aren't we
seeing an increase in activity
globally?" he asked. "It just
hasn't changed that much."
The global weather sys-
tem, and the role of hurri-
canes in the overall system, is


too complex to model, Gray
said.
"Warming is not unprece-
dented," he concluded.
"Don't believe everything you
read."

Bring a new appellate court to the area


hanks, Rep. Jeff Kottkamp, for getting
the Legislature to allocate $1.5 million
for a court annex on the Florida Gulf
Coast University, campus in Fort Myers.
Thanks, but no thanks.
We do not need a court annex in Lee
County. The plan to put an annex to the 2nd
District Court of Appeal on the FGCU cam-
pus is fraught with problems including the
fact that the campus is already built out. The
idea to put an annex there caught FGCU
administration by surprise as much as it did
others who didn't even see that coming.
But the most troubling aspect of the last-
minute rush to get money for a court annex
is that the plan falls short of what we need.
The caseload for the 2nd District Court of


Appeal has grown tremendously. We do not
just need a court annex, we need a new dis-
trict court.
Charlotte, Sarasota and DeSoto counties
are in the 2nd District Court of Appeal's juris-
diction, which consists of the 6th, 10th, 12th,
13th and 20th, judicial circuits. A new 6th
DCA, which would consist of the 12th (Sara-
sota, Manatee and DeSoto) and 20th circuits
(Charlotte, Lee, Collier, Hardee, Highlands
and Glades) would be the best solution to
overcrowding and the problems area resi-
dents have dealing with a drive to Fort Myers
or Tampa for appeals.,
A Supreme Court-appointed committee
has studied the problem but stopped short of
recommending a 6th DCA. It did suggest


forming another committee to analyze court
workloads and bring back other recommen-,
datioris.
At least one member of the committee,
Chief Judge Hugh Hayes of the 20th Judicial
Circuit, openly lobbied for a new 6th DCA
that would include the 12th and 20th judicial
circuits. It seems to us to be the obvious
answer.
We believe Gov. Jeb Bush should use his
line-item veto power to kill the $1.5 million
allocated for an annex at FGCU.
First, the money is only enough to design
and plan an annex.
Second, at the risk of the problem getting
studied to death, we believe the governor
and Legislature should wait for a complete


report on caseloads and other information
that should go into such an important deci-
sion.
If the new district is approved, there's
already a more centrally located courthouse
where cases can be convened without having
to plan and build an annex in Lee County -
thanks to Rep. Paige Kreegel and Rep. Joe
Negron, who were instrumental in getting
the $1 million for the Punta Gorda court-
house.
The need for a more local appellate court
is obvious to lawyers and jurors who are clos-
est to the problem. We applaud Kottkamp's
efforts. We just need to be patient and work
for a real solution, not a quick fix to a serious
problem.


Walking in the


county s moccasins


ED MARTIN
f r i Tr
_i _J "_ i '


There is that .old saying
about walking. in some one
else's moccasins to under-
stand them better. In that
spirit I decided to talk over
some Venice area concerns
with Sarasota' Counrty 'Com--
missioner Paul Mercier, who
has demonstrated an interest
in South County affairs as well
as in his home district.
Having listened to folks
associated with Venice gov-
ernment express some nega-
tives about the county, I won-
dered if Mercier would reply
in kind. He didn't. Mercier
seems to me to be a kind of
down-to-earth guy, not pos-
turing as a politician or guru.
He put a positive slant on
county-city relationships,
saying he thought the recent
meeting was useful, but
hoped that the next one could
be more specific, dealing with
problems like roads, develop-
ment, etc.
One thing became clear:
The 400-pound gorilla in the
county's living room is not
Venice, but rather the huge
impact of tremendous growth
in Manatee County along the
joint border, which is already
causing traffic and related
problems. The match-up. in
connector roads is not good,
with four lanes merging into
two as they cross the county
line.
As a result of thousands of
new units developed in Lake-
wood Ranch, University Park-
way is becoming traffic
bound. 1-75 appears to be
transporting workers from
South County and Charlotte
County into Sarasota and
Bradenton, with increasing
problems for Sarasota exits,
leading to people finding
their own traffic-avoidance
routes.
Mercier did say that prob-
lems between the city and
county are sometimes the
result of the county focusing
on other issues, important to
them, while Venice feels ig-
nored. I asked about the
seeming conflict between city
Manager Marty Black and
County Administrator Jim
Ley. Black's comments about
the country are often nega-
tive, Ley is less frequently
public, whatever his feelings.
Mercier was a diplomat.
He said he sees the men as
similar they have goals
they want met and have little
tolerance for delay or opposi-


tion but suggested both
were effective. As an example,
he mentioned that Ley had
advised him early in his first
term that he worked for the
majority, not one member.
There is a theory in psycholo-
gy as well as in physics that
like forces can repel each
other.
That did lead into the lack
of connections, roads and
interpersonal, between Ven-
ice and Sarasota, which hav-
ing just spent an hour driving
from Venice to the commis-
sioner's office, I could really
appreciate.
BennyWeaver on the plan-
ning commission and Vicki
Taylor and John Moore on
council hate been expressing
the most concern with traffic
problems that are going to be
exacerbated by the potential
9,000 units in the Laurel
Road/ Knights Trail area. Oth-!
ers should pay attention.
Missing connections
If developers arid their
agents are telling Venice offi-
cials that annexations and
high-density zoning are ready
to go ahead, holding out the
hope for a north-south con-
nector using Knights Trail, or
for that matter linking Pine-
brook with Honore, Mercier,
though supportive, felt that
funding was nowhere in sight
for the near future. I suggest-
ed "five years?" He, obviously
wanting to be as positive as
possible, said "maybe," add-
ing that if funds became
available there seemed to be
agreement that north-south
roads were essential.
The expansion of the inter-
change between Laurel and
Knights Trail is on a faster
schedule, but improvement
above the landfill is at an
embryonic stage, with citizen
resistance anticipated. Pine-
brook to Honore is also most-
ly a dream at this time.
Mercier raised the possibil-
ity that the Pinebrook and
Knights Trail connectors
might' be a higher priority
than improving the 41 bypass.
While the state is the primary
funding source for 41, it might
be an idea worth looking at,
particularly since local funds
will be a part of the puzzle.
The development along
East Venice Avenue and
also along Laurel Road by
the county and city, with little
thought of each others' inter-
ests, is now on the front burn-
er and the county will be act-
ing on zoning matters, now
pending, on East Venice
Avenue. Mercier feels that the
commissioners' actions will
give an insight into whether
recent conversations may
bring more desirable results.
Mercier pointed out that
the annexations by Venice
and North Port, some east of
1-75 where the county had

I'll keep the hurricanes, thanks


Editor:
A trend for some in this wonderful area seems to be moving
to North Carolina. While hurricanes and rising home prices are
undesirable side effects of living in our little corner of paradise,
these may pale in comparison to what awaits those migrating
to the mountainous north, especially the Smoky Mountains
and nearby.
Did you know the Environmental Protection Agency de-
clared Great Smoky Mountains National Park the second
smoggiest park in the nation? Nearby outdated power plants
(some in surrounding states) and industry with little pollution
control are causing pollution in that area to be a threat to
human health, according to the EPA.
Also, rainfall in that area is five to 10 times more acidic than
normal rainfall. Smoky Mountains National Park was ranked
second in the nation for most acidic rainfall, which is damag-
ing plants and streams in the mountains.
Ozone pollution is another huge problem, as is polluted
haze, which sometimes obscures mountain views.
You owe it to yourself, and especially your children, if you
have them, to do your homework on these critical issues.
And if you think growth is out of control here, what controls
do you think are in place up in mountain country? Will there be
any pristine views left in 10 years?
I'll keep my patch of paradise near the gulf, thank you.
North Carolina is a nice place to visit I've been there.
However, their problems with pollution and population explo-
sion seem to be gettirig bigger by the day.

It's time to put a stop to

I came to America in 1960,
with my parents and brother,
after waiting years to get a
visa.
I had to learn to speak
English to advance, became
an American citizen in 1966
after graduating from high
school. I served my country
by enlisting in the military
and doing three tours in
Vietnam, and I was proud to
do so.
After the military I worked
20 years for the phone com-
pany, 15 years owning my
own restaurant in Englewood


and now still work full-time
trying to survive. After paying
taxes all my life I can't afford
health insurance, while ille-
gals get medical, schooling

Editor:
The editorial
your Friday, April
of the Gondolier S


ing a South Carolina-born
waitress speaking poor and,
improper English is in bad
taste and also disgusting.
My wife was born, reared
and educated in South
Carolina, through college I
might add (for your informa-
tion they do have colleges
there), and our daughter and
her family live in Columbia,
S.C.
I have visited the state for
more than a 50-year period
and never heard a waitress or
anyone else speak in the
manner depicted in your car-
toon. The people in South
Carolina are not backwood,
uneducated, bumbling idiots,
as your cartoon suggests.
What you have printed is
deplorable and inexcusable.
Had this waitress been cast as
a black, the African-American
community would have casti-
gated you as being a racist,
and rightfully so.
I think apologies from the
cartoonist, the publisher and
the editor to your readers and
-the people of South Carolina
are in order. In the future the
management of the Gondo-
lier Sun should review all car-
toons for racial, ethnic and
religious offensive material

Bye-bye, Circus Arena; hello, hotel


Tear it down. This is in regard to what to do with the circus
arena. First, tear it down. It's not only an eyesore, it's a physical
danger. The interior of that building is a shambles. Of course
it's been boarded up to keep out the vandals. But it is an
absolute hazard to the community. Tear it down. Replace it
with a combination hotel, convention center and terminal for
the airport. What a tremendous asset to the community.


Nonsense. The. press is
really important and if the
press doesn't tell us what's
going on, who will? Great that
someone's looking over their
shoulders at those who repre-
sent us and spend our tax dol-
lars. Doesn't matter if the
press is in the form of news-
papers, the Internet or word
of mouth. Lots of nonsense
has taken place in recent
years within the city ofVenice
government. One hundred
thousand plus dollars in fines
and $1 million in attorney
fees accumulated because of
a violation of environmental
regulations. And the defense
by the city was that it was all
part of doing business. Com-
plete deterioration of VPD,
including loss of accredita-
tion and maybe even a seri-
ous lack of following proper
procedures could have result-
ed in the city paying a record
amount of more than
$350,000 in a settlement after
reported by, again, the local


been limiting urban develop-
ment, put the county in a
tough position. If developers
want to do more east of 75,
they have found annexing
into the cities might offer a
smoother route. More joint
planning for sectors includ-
ing city and county lands
seems the only solution.
My experience with most
council members in Venice,
and with commissioners


newspapers. Serious infrac-
tions in the information sys-
tem department defended by
the former administration. All
of this a part of creative
financing attitude that has
prevailed. We think of it as
"the city" pays for all this non-
sense and we tend to forget
just who the city is. The city is
the Venice taxpayers. If a busi-
ness in the private sector
operated on the same atti-
tude, the business would
have been bankrupt long ago.
However, the government has
no competition and has
allowed this inefficiency to
the customer, the taxpayer.
Now think about what would
be going on if no one was
watching.
The city has many good,
dedicated employees, but'
they are generally powerless
to speak up when seeing
waste around them.
No more dogs. Why is Ven-
ice council changing so many
parks to open them to dogs


Mercier, Shannon Staub and
Jon Thaxton, leads me to
believe they have the tem-
perament to work together if
they can put the time into it
and make a kind of "new
beginning."
They should also be also to
lead Black and Ley into "play-
ing well with others." I think
right now, the sailors are set-
ting the course for the admi-
rals too often.


instead of just three or four?
I'm 64 years old and I walk
and bike a lot. When dogs,
come up to me, even on a
leash, the owners say he or
she won't bite. All they have to
do is lick me, I get hives. If
they rub against me, then if I
brush it off and my hand hap-
pens to itch my eye, it swells. I
also get asthma. Where are
my rights? Dogs seem to have
more than humans. Please
don't open so many parks to
dogs. Also, why do congress-
men listen to alleged immi-
grants or their children when
they don't even understand
how people who are working
on minimum wage can hard-
ly make it anymore with the
price of gasoline and the heat-
ing bills. Why aren't they
doing something for them,

DAVID DUNN-RANKIN



Sarasota, Charlotte and
DeSoto counties have an
important decision to make:
Do we build more roads or do
we force more people into our
current developed areas and
hope public transportation
will alleviate our traffic prob-
lems? DeSoto will be the big
beneficiary if insufficient'
roads are built in Sarasota and
Charlotte.
One school of thought
about building roads is that if
we build more roads, then the
new roads will just encourage
more development. By not
building more roads we can
stop or slow down develop-
ment.
This is a nice theory which
seems perfectly reasonable -
don't build it and they won't
come. Wish it were so. In real-
ity, millions of people want to
move to Florida. They are
coming whether we build
roads or not.
What, happens when we
don't build the roads to com-
fortably handle growth?
Maybe you missed the arti-
cle in which the Charlotte
County Commission said the
traffic on U.S. 41 and State
Road 776 will be more than
the roads are designed to
handle under existing defini-
tions of adequacy. To fix the
problem of congestion, they
changed the definition of
congestion. Presto change,
U.S. 41 and S.R. 776 are no


longer congested roads.
The Sarasota County com-
missioners are big advocates
of forcing folks to live and
drive in a relatively narrow
area. Here's what Sarasota
County Commissioner Jon
Thaxton has to say about how
well that strategy is working
for Sarasota County: Thaxton
said traffic at the height of the
season in Sarasota will be-
come the everyday traffic.
"The worst is yet to come,"
he said. "Congestion is going
to be a way of life."
I agree with Thaxton.
Roads in Sarasota and Char-
lotte counties are a congested
mess and getting worse all the
time. Is more urban infill, and
increasingly congested roads,
what we want?
We have an alternative: We
can and should build more
roads.
There are two major road
projects the Southwest Flor-
ida Regional Planning Coun-
cil, Sarasota, Charlotte and
DeSoto counties should get
behind.
The Florida Department of
Transportation is studying a
parallel toll road to Interstate
75. This road would originate
in Charlotte County and ex-
tend 150 miles to north of
Tampa Bay. This toll road
alternative to the current con-
gested mess that is 1-75 will be
a welcome alternative.
FDOT is also seriously
.studying a parallel toll road to

Interstate 4. The highway
would start in Manatee Coun-
ty at the intersection of 1-75
and go to the east coast allow-
ing motorists to miss the con-
gested nightmare that is 1-4.
A better alternative to the
toll road would be to widen
our two-lane State Road 70
that already runs east and
west. Taxpayers already own.
most of the right of way, mak-
ing this road much less
expensive to build.
We know with S.R. 70 there
are no hidden concerns
about environmentally sensi-
tive wetlands that a new east-
west connector would need
to cross. The widening of 70
has already received the sup-
port of 16 governments.
The parallel toll road to I-
75 and the parallel highway to
1-4 are worthy projects that
should receive the support of
-our county commissions and
the Southwest Florida Re-
gional Planning Council.
The state is studying
whether it should pour big
money into our area to take,
care of major highway prob-
lems. We need to get behind
these plans or watch the
money disappear to other
parts of the state.

Heavy pumping caused upper river collapse


Mining no longer a factor, claims Mosaic.


BY GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER

It's natural for some wet-
lands, lakes and streams to go
dry during Southwest Flor-
ida's driest spells.
But, the way the main
channel of the upper Peace
River near Bartow went dry
last week isn't entirely natural,
several scientists said. And
both aquatic life and man-
kind could be paying the
price for years to come.
The scientists, from the
U.S. Geological Survey and
the Southwest Florida Water
Management District, have
conducted a study on the
upper Peace River since 2002.
They were interviewed this
week just after the 3-mile sec-
tion of the river under study
rapidly drained into a series
of sinkholes.
The scientists are working
to map the dozens of sink-
holes that have opened up in
the area and gauge the
amount of water they drain-
ed.
Last week, some of the
researchers encountered
heaps of dying fish flounder-
ing in muddy ponds that
quickly dried out as the flow
dwindled to nothing.
The water district plans to
use the study to design a mul-
timillion-dollar recovery pro-
ject for the upper Peace, said
Ron Basso, senior hydrologist
for the district.
The project calls for water
levels at Lake Hancock and in
the Lakes Region north of
Lakeland to be increased. The
extra water would be dis-
charged during dry periods to
restore a "minimum flow" to
the river, Basso said.

Pumped down-
The primary cause of the
(upper river's collapse is the
intensive pumping of iellf
water in the area since the
1930s, said Bill Lewelling,
USGS hydrologist.
Lewelling said he first saw
a segment of the river get
drained dry in 1985. However,
the rest of the upper river kept
flowing at the time.
In 60 years of record, the
first time the USGS's Bartow
gauge recorded "zero" flow
occurred amid a drought in
2002, Lewelling said. Now, it's
happening again.
At least one of the most
recent sinkholes, a 15-foot-
deep cone-shaped hole dub-
bed "Dover," was recorded
earlier this spring to be suck-
ing down as much as 5 mil-


lion gallons per day.
"I do think it's a relatively
recent hydrological occur-
rence," Lewelling said. "That
(history) tells you there's a
trend going on and some-
thing is happening in the
environment."

Why is it draining?
Lewelling, in a 1998 study,
documented that "intensive
groundwater withdrawals for
phosphate mining and agri-
culture" drew down the Flor-
idan aquifer in the area by 60
feet between 1931 to 1975.
Since 1975, the pumping
declined by about a third, and
the acquifer's head-pressure
climbed 15 feet in response. It
remains 45 feet below land
surface.
In his current study, how-
ever, Lewelling said he's fo-
cusing on the connection
between the Peace River and
the Hawthorn acquifer, which
lies above the Floridan.
The sinkholes connect the
Peace River with the Haw-
thorn. The research may
show whether raising the
level of the Hawthorn could
restore the upper Peace, he
said.
The level of water in the
acquifer is the key factor in
the draining of the river be-
cause surface water dissolves
limestone, and that acceler-
ates the formation of sink-
holes, Lewelling said.
The phosphate mining
industry also left behind vast
clay settling areas along the
both sides of the upper Peace
River. The clay settling areas
have blocked the seepage of
"base flow" to the river,
Lewelling said.

Who's to blame?
Gray Gordon, vice presi-
dent of Mosaic Fertilizers, the
largest phosphate mining
tonmpany' in the world, ac-
knowledges that overpump-
ing by the industry con-
tributed to the loss of spring
flow in the 1950s.
An economic boom in Polk
County was also responsible,
he said.
However, the phosphate
industry is currently "not
affecting surface water flow,"
he said. He said the industry
now recycles 90 percent of the
water used in the mining
process.
"We are doing the very best
that an industry can do," he
said.
Gordon also denies that
clay-settling areas are block-
ing base flow. He said most. of

the berms surrounding old
clay settling areas have been
recontoured to reconnect
their runoff to thewatershed.
Most of the mines have
played out in Polk County
and the industry has begun
moving south.
Although the shift will al-
low the industry to reduce.
pumping in the upper Peace
area, therightto purhp"willbe
transferred to supply growth,
according to David Moore,
executive director of the
water management district.
To restore spring flow,
pumping would have to be
reduced to 1930 levels of just
25 mgd, and that would cre-
ate an economic catastrophe,
Moore said.
' "Everything we do changes
the environment," Gordon
said. "So there's no way to
point your finger to one thing,
and if you did, that one thing
would be growth."

A lost resource
"My father-in-law used to
swim in Kissingen Spring as a


boy," said Sam Stone, envi-
ronmental affairs coordinator
for the Peace River Manasota
Regional Water Supply Au-
thority.
The spring, located near
Bartow, went dry in 1950, in
the midst of a phosphate
mining boom and the ensu-
ing pumping that went with
it.
'" Stone said his personal
hope of seeing the spring re-
stored gave him a keen inter-
est in Lewelling's research.
But he also has a profes-
sional reason to be interested.
The authority relies on the
Peace River to supply 20 mil-
lion gallons per day of drink-
ing water to 150,000 cus-
tomers and those numbers
are expected to double in a
fewyears.
However, the amount
drained into the upper
Peace's sinkholes probably
has a negligible effect on sup-
ply, he said. That's because a
number of creeks augment
the flow of the river in its 70-
mile journey from Bartow to


the water plant near the De-
Soto-Charlotte county line.
The average annual flow of
the river exceeds 600 mgd.
"We're watching and learn-
ing, and we're interested,"
Stone said. "But in the world
of things, (a 6 mgd of loss) is
not going to make us or break
us."

Indelible footpnnt, /olu
The fish in the upper Peace
River may feel the effects
more acutely, according to Dr.
Tom Fraser, biologist.
It's not unusual for a
stream to go dry, he said. Nor-
mally, the fish can seek refuge
in the river's main channel.
"But having a main stem of
a river system go dry, that is
an usual characteristic," he
said. "So repopulation ... is
dependent on fishes that sur-
vive in the downstream seg-
ment."
The loss of the upper Peace
River may also add an incre-
ment of decline to the whole
of the Charlotte Harbor estu-
ary. Fraser said that, normally,


in early summer, a bloom of
tidal plankton occurs in a
particularly productive zone
located where the river wid-
ens to meet the bay.'
During the drought of
1999-2001, there wasn't any
such bloom in that area, and
the lack of fresh water was the
likely reason, Fraser said.
The plankton sustains a
' liAtbffWorms and' fishethat
fdrmna link the food chaii;,fe
said.
The river's flow since the
1970s has declined by some
35 percent compared to the
previous 30-year period. Most
of the decline is due to a
change in climate, according
to water district reports.
But man's activities have
left an indelible footprint,
Fraser said.
"It's definitely an impact
that has been clearly exacer-
bated by human activities,"
he said.

iBudget surplus saves state insurance fund


BY BOB FLISS
STAFF WRITER

The soul of procrastination
lies in leaving unpleasant
tasks for last in the hope that
home turn of events will ren-
.er these tasks unnecessary.
It sometimes works. Or in
4he words of Murphy: "Don't
Believe in miracles, rely on
hem."
e So, it's revealing that the
florida Legislature saved
property insurance as a last-
rmninute item just before it
adjourned Friday night.
The Legislature came up
with $715 million to shore up
7Citizens Property Insurance
'Corp., the state-owned "in-
surer of last resort," which is
running a $1.7 billion deficit
om last year's frantic hurri-
ane season.
The alternative would have
6ieen politically unacceptable
'e- charge all Florida policy-
holders an estimated 18 per-
cent surcharge to cover Citi-
zens' deficit. This invites un-
comfortable questions like
"Why am I being charged to
_pay for someone else's insur-
hnce?" ,
There will probably still be
+ surcharge, but perhaps half
,a s much. Citizens spokesman
'ustin Glover said that it will
take some time for the insurer
o0 sort out what the Legis-
.ature desires and come up
with a plan.
Insurer flight
The needed "miracle"
d'ame in the form of a larger-
'than-expected budget sur-
.plus. Even while Florida suf-
fered through two bad hurri-
cane seasons in a row, the
general level of economic
;activity remained high, pro-
ducing a bountiful harvest of
. tax dollars.
Indeed, an extra $920 milE
lion was "discovered" midway
through the ,legislative ses-
sion, and there was some talk
of giving all that money to
.Citizens.
But There's- little the Leg-
islature could have done. to
stop the flight of private insur-
ance capital from the state,
after eight major storms in
two years. Companies are
either petitioning the Office of
Insurance Regulation for dou-
ble-digit rate increases, leav-
ing the state altogether or, in
the case of Tampa-based Poe
Financial Group, going broke.
This inevitably puts more
pressure on Citizens, which
was set up in 2002 to provide
homeowners coverage for
properties that private insur-
ers couldn't or wouldn't
touch. It wasn't originally de-
signed to be a welfare scheme
for owners of aging or other-
wise high-risk buildings -
Citizens premiums are uni-
formly higher than private
coverage.
Poe bounce-back
Despite the fact that Citizens
regularly sells entire blocks of.
policies to private insurers -
so-called "take out" companies
it still handles roughly one-
third of Florida's homeowners
policies.
This figure alone shows
that Citizens is being asked to
do more a lot more than
similar state-run self-insur-
ance programs. According to
the Florida Insurance Coun-
cil, these organizations typi-
cally handle 10 percent or less
of the homeowners policies in
their states.
And now, Citizens faces the
prospect of. taking over as
many as 280,000 new policies
from the insolvent Poe orga-
nization, two of whose sub-
sidiaries, Atlantic Preferred
Insurance Co. and Southern
Family Insurance Co., have
already been taken over by
the Florida Department of
Financial Services. A third,
Florida Preferred Insurance
Co., will probably be liquidat-
ed in June.
DFS has come up with a
plan to automatically convert
all Poe policies to Citizens by


July 1. Poe customers won't
need to do anything. They'll
even pay Poe premiums until
they're up for renewal, after
which the higher Citizens
rates will take effect.


Poe was one of the leading
"take-out" companies, so Citi-,
zens will be getting back many
policies it formerly turned over
to the private sector.
Area insurance agents say
that the DFS plan appears
logical and was probably the
best thing that could have


C


been done under the circum-
stances.
"If all of these policies had
to be canceled and rewritten
... you would basically have
to shut down your agency
and rewrite Poe policies.
Customers would have .to
cancel, get refunds and come


up with new down payments.
It would be a general night-
mare," said Jim Nolan.
Nolan added that Citizens
has effectively become the
primary insurer for older:
homes in Florida. Anything
built after the building code
reforms of 1994 should be

,able to get cheaper private
insurance.
David Ivankovic said his
agency has had some success
finding private coverage for
former Poe customers.
But a seamless transition
to private coverage usually
comes at a price, Ivankovic


added. Homeowners policies
are going up 15 to 30 percent
while hurricane insurance for
businesses is increasing 20 to
60 percent.
"It's a costly obstacle, but
it's not that much worse than
the gasoline, situation," Ivan-
kovic said.

BY CHARLEEN JAEB
CORRESPONDENT

When in Venice, I've found
there are many more ways
Ofshooting interesting
pictures of doorways'
Than can be seen by cruis-
ing streets and shoreways.

I love Venice.
I promote it constantly to
friends as a great place to
escape those brutal Ohio (Fill
in your state here) winters.
Coming up empty in my
search for one of those
"Doorways of Venice" posted's
in local art galleries and
shops, I set out to make my
own. The bonus was that it
was one more excuse to travel
the roadways and even the
shoreways of Venice in my
search for the most interest-
ing portals.
My intention was to focus
on close-ups of doors found
in the Mediterranean Revival-
style homes for which Venice
is known.
Midway through the pro-
ject, my focus changed.
Instead I would focus on
the variety and uniqueness of
doorways to be found in
Venice. While there are likely
to be hundreds of special
doors throughout the greater
Venice area, I limited my
search to a more manageable
area, the part of Venice- sur-
rounded by the Intracoastal
Waterway, the part known as
"the island."
The shots were mostly tak-
en from streets and shore. A
few from within the homes,


when their owners discovered
what I was about and invited
me inside to see still more
special doorways.
That is what happened at
the Banyan House House Bed
& Breakfast on Harbor Drive,
where-I was invited inside to
enjoy the view from the
breakfast room to the patio,
through French doors below a
stained glass window hand-
made by the owner, Chuck
McCormack.
Inside the Venice Art Cen-
ter I found a handsome door
covered with hand-painted
animals by artist Sylvia Bar-
ron, a VAC member. Also of
interest at the VAC are the
doorways that offer hand-
some views of the gated
courtyard gardens to the east
and west of the building.
While snapping a picture
of the beautiful entrance to a
home in Country Club Es-
tates, I found the shot en-
hanced as a bird chose that
time to ascend the steps to
the porch where it could be
included in the photo.
At the South Jetty, a recycle
shed used by Habitat for
Humanity had more than two
good-looking doors. The en-
tire shed is a work of art by
Norma McMullen and Mau-
reen Michael Byrne. Situated
along the waterway, the shed
scene depicts a sailboat en-
tering the harbor from the
gulf while a turtle and an alli-
gator cavort on the sandy sur-
face at the edge of the water-
way.
Fortunately, alligators are
not too prevalent in the area.

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 water-
ing causes burning and night
watering causes diseases
such as fungus and mold.

Volunteers needed


for Breast Cancer Walk


STAFF REPORT
The American Cancer
Society is seeking volunteers
for its Making Strides
Against Breast Cancer walk,
which will take place
Saturday, Oct. 21, at the
. Sarasota Polo Club in Lake-
wood Ranch. Volunteers are
needed for the Sarasota
and Manatee planning com-
mittees and for the day-of
activities.
Since 1993, Making Strides
Against Breast Cancer has
been the American Cancer
Society's premier event dedi-
cated to raising awareness


and dollars in support of
breast cancer research, pro-
grams, advocacy and patient
services. The dollars raised
from the walk are used by
the society to fuel the most
promising research, to spread
lifesaving breast cancer
awareness messages, to
advocate for screening op-
portunities for all people,
and to ease the cancer bur-
den for people facing the
disease.
Making Strides Against
Breast Cancer is a noncom-
petitive, 5-kilometer walk
that is a fun, memorable
experience and a great way


to raise money to fight
breast cancer. Participants
enjoy a day' of exercise,
camaraderie, entertainment,
food, and most important,
honoring someone they

There's nothing like a good book


BY COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER


It is always a special mo-
ment to see children helping
children.
At Pine View School,
fourth-grade students from
Amanda Simon and Deb
Delaney's classes paired off to
make personalized books for
a group of students at Oak
Park, a school for the emo-
tionally and mentally handi-
capped.
"We hope the students will
gain a new perspective and
learn that not everyone is as
fortunate as they are," Simon
said regarding the purpose
-behind the project.
Each pair of students were
assigned a book buddy. First,
they received an e-mail with a
list of interests and a photo-
graph of their book buddy.
From there, the Pine View stu-
dents began the eight-week
process of creating personal-
ized books for their book
buddies.
Circus fun
1 Rochelle Prokupets and
Jackie Landry made their
book, "Circus Fun" for their
book buddy, Dwight Jackson.
"We decided to make our
book interactive," Landry


said. "We wanted .to also
make it educational,"
Prokupets added.
They chose the circus as
the subject matter for their
book because they realized it
could be an interesting venue
to show different educational
tools and vibrant colors.
The next step was to write
the story, which Prokupets
and Landry decided would be
about a day at the circus.
Next, the pair began the
illustrations. Inside "Circus
Fun," there was plenty that
their book buddy could play
with and learn from.
Texture was taught by
using actual balloons instead
of merely drawing them. A
counting game, in the guise of
buying some cotton candy,
was used to show how to
make change.
The students also used col-
ored popsicle sticks with rac-
* ing horses on the tips to teach
about colors.
Prokupets and Landry
wanted to add so much to the
book that it hardly seemed it
would ever be finished.
Labor of love
In fact, the project was
such a labor of love for all the

the Youth Activity Room at The Frances T. Bourne Jacaranda Public Library in February
2005. The gatherings are a part of their cooperative effort to further the home-educated
children's interest in American history. The group chose the Jacaranda Library because of
its enthusiastic youth department and excellent meeting facilities. It is an ideal location .
to accommodate the children, ages 10 months to eight years. The children have written
and acted out presentations about key historical events, including the Boston Tea Party
and the first Thanksgiving, dressing as their favorite historical characters.

Sertomas presents scholarship awards


CYD announces


new initiative


STAFF REPORT


PHOTO COURTESY OF VEE GARRY-CHIULLI
Venice Women's Sertoma member Sherrie Sirkin (center) presented scholarship awards to Kristen Caudill, Kimberly Dinh,
Tara Lacey and Jennifer Brusger.


Are there enough positive
programs for youth in Sara-
sota County? Many commu-
nity leaders .have been con-
sidering this question for
years and a new initiative
promises to reveal the.facts.
Community Youth Develop-
ment has been contracted by
Sarasota County Government
to collect information on
every positive activity avail-
able for school-aged youth in
Sarasota County.
High school students will
be hired and trained as "map-
pers" to identify and catalog
programs that are available to
youth ages 5-18.
"Youth have a unique per-
spective on this issue," said
Karen Bogues, CYD Director.
"They will identify activities
that adults may overlook."
Information collected will


be available to the public
through a website that will
provide search options based
on age, type of program, or
location (zip code). Research
is expected to continue
through the remainder of
2006, with a report presented
to Sarasota County Commis-
sioners in early 2007.
Youth interested in work-
ing in the project should con-
tact CYD for more informa-
tion and an application. For
more information, contact
Karen Bogues at 922-5126.
CYD is funded through
grants from the Sarasota
Board of County Commis-
sioners, the Leslie and Mar-
garet Weller Fund of the
Community Foundation of
Sarasota County and the
Bank of America Client
Foundation/Merrill-Cliotelly
Fund to provide pro-social,
drug-free activities for youth.


Apply online for in-school mini-grants through water management district


BY MICHAEL MOLLIGAN
GUESTWRITER


Teachers interested in
securing a Splash! mini-grant
through the Southwest Flor-
ida Water Management Dis-
trict can begin applying on-
line. The application is avail-
able on the District's Web site
at WaterMatters.org/mini-
grants.
This year the District im-
proved the online application


process and will no longer
have printed applications.
"Last year we received 110
applications and only two of
them were submitted on
paper, the rest were all sub-
mitted online," said Raina
O'Neil, senior communica-
tions coordinator. "Going to
an online-only application
will save the District time and
money."
Improvements made to
the online application in-


clude allowing applicants to
save the application so they
can go back and review and
change portions before sub-
mitting it. Grant applications
are due Aug. 14.
The District's Splash! mini-
grants provide teachers with
funding for classroom pro-
jects on water quality, water
conservation, alternative
sources, water supply, flood
protection or watersheds. The
goal of the mini-grant pro-


gram is to promote hands-on
water education that teaches
students about their local
watersheds and the water
resources within them.
Splash! mini-grants are avail-
able for public, private, char-
ter and home school groups
and provide up to $5,000 per
group or school on a reim-
bursement basis only.
Last year the District
awarded Splash! mini-grants
to 108 educators, totaling


more than $232,000. Past
mini-grant projects include
student monitoring of local
water quality, the develop-
ment of water-conserving
gardens on school property
and outreach campaigns de-
signed to promote awareness
of water-conserving prac-
tices.
In addition to mini-grant
funding, many free educa-
tional materials are available
from the District. These pub-


locations are correlated to
Florida's Sunshine State Stan-
dards and can also be ordered
on the District's Web site at
WaterMatters.org/publica-
tions.
Contact Raina O'Neil, sen-
ior communications coordi-
nator, at (800) 423-1476, Ext.
4774 with questions about
the Splash! mini-grant appli.
cation process,. or the
District's other educational
materials.

children, the excitement they
had could hardly be con-
tained on the day they finally
got to meet their book bud-

books.
Each student was to pre-

read it. When the students

finally got to meet Jackson,
and the group went to a quiet
place to read and share the
book.
This program did more
than remind the students that
they might be more fortunate
than others; it taught them
how books can bring people
together.

Hear, hear: Teach your kids to listen


Women making Connections for kids


LYNN REIFERT
CORRESPONDENT

What is the number one
skill that parents can instill in
their children this summer to
improve their chances for a
successful school year this
fall? They can teach them to
listen.
Knowing how to listen and
being willing to listen are pre-
requisites for learning. Think
about how much children
need to rely on their abilities
to listen and remember when
they are in school.
Children need to practice
listening before entering
school in order to increase
their language and reading
comprehension. Those who
are allowed to do all the talk-
ing at home, and who get little
practice listening, may not
develop good comprehen-
sion skills.
When they get to school
they may be unable to under-
stand a direction and follow
through when the instruction
is given only once. This may
be because of poor auditory
memory ability. The auditory
memory (listening and re-
membering) may not have


evolved, due in part to lack of
experience in listening.
Perhaps they have devel-
oped the habit of not re-
sponding immediately to a
direction given by a parent,
because the parent has pa-
tiently repeated the request
several times. A child may be
unwilling to listen, as he
prefers to do what he wants to
do, rather than what he has
been asked to do.
If he has not been expected
to follow through, after being
given a direction the first
time, he will most likely not
develop the ability or motiva-
tion to do so.
Teachers are not as likely to
repeat directions several
times. There is so much to
learn and do, and there are
other children in the class
with good listening skills who
cannot wait, so the child who
does not listen may fall be-
hind quickly. ,
In order to ensure that chil-
dren are ready to get the most
from their school experience,
parents can provide rewards
for being a good listener, and
consequences for not listen-
ing. They can say things like,
"Thank you for being such a
good listener. I like it when I
only have to ask you to do
something one time."
They can consistently re-
mind children to take turns,
and to wait while others are
talking. Children who inter-
rupt when others are talking
and seem to need to be the
center of attention generally
have difficulty when they get

to school.
With children who seem to
have more trouble remem-
bering, parents can ask the
child to repeat what they have
just asked them to do. They
can give more than one in-
struction at a time to increase
the challenge of listening, re-
membering and doing. They*
can help the child pick out
key words in the directions
and repeat those words to
commit them to memory,
before attempting to com-
plete the tasks.
Some young children may
not have the patience to lis-
ten. Requiring them to sit, lis-
ten and attend to increasingly
longer stories will help devel-'
op their abilities to "tune in."
It will also help to stop period-
ically to discuss what has hap-
pened so far in the story or
may happen next, or to ask
other questions to discover
how well the child is listening.
Parents can require chil-
dren to sit at the dinner table
until everyone has finished
the family meal. The dinner
table is a great place to prac-
tice conversational skills of
paying attention while others
.talk, and taking turns telling
about how the day has gone.
Time spent improving chil-
dren's listening, skills will be
well worth the effort in terms
of better school performance.

BY RACHEL ALEXANDER
STAFF WRITER

.Susan Memminger and Su-
san Kenyon Jennings are on a
mission to offer parents ad-
vice and support for raising
healthy, happy children.
Memminger and Jennings,
both mothers of children with
learning challenges, saw the
premier issue of "Child Con-
nections" magazine hit the
streets in Charlotte, Sarasota
and Manatee counties last
week.,
The quarterly magazine is
free, and available at libraries,
schools and businesses.
The two women have pro-
duced a publication packed
full of professional advice and
personal stories to help with
the social, economic and edu-
cational challenges of raising
children.
"We think every child in
school needs to be successful
and every child needs a differ-
ent way to be taught," Jen-
nings, said. "Sometimes, it
doesn't take much to help
them be successful."
Memminger and Jennings
said they met by chance, but
they believe it was for a very
good reason: Both found it
took too long to find the re-
sources necessary to help
their children succeed in
school.
"It took a long time for my
child to get accommodated
properly to get him to be suc-
cessful," Jennings said.
The women each have two
children. All four are different,
but the mothers said the type
of help they needed was simi-
lar.
"We had a lot of similar
challenges to get them to the
point where they could be
successful, and learn well and
be happy and have friends,"

Jennings said.
Team effort
Memminger said they
want to help educators get to
know each child and help
parents work with educators
to get to know each child.
"It's so important that
everyone works as a team to
make a difference," Memmin-
ger said. "That's our mission,
to build a team that wants to
work together."
It's important to under-
stand the differences in the
way individuals can learn
best, Jennings said.
"Some are visual, some are
tactile, some are auditory,"
she said. "It doesn't make you
wrong, you're just different.
They won't be great readers if


someone doesn't recognize
they need a different ap-
proach."
"People have to under-
stand these actions are not
deliberate," Memminger said.
"We're talking about all kids
and parents not feeling isolat-
ed."
Jennings said schools are
becoming more accountable
and have more data available
to parents.
"I think they are trying to
fill the gaps," Jennings said.

back pain
remains the
number one reason for
visits to the chiropractor, with good
Season: Research shows that
chiropractic treatment is effective in
relieving low-back pain. However, at the acute
onset of such pain due to back spasms, it is not
always feasible to make a quick trip to the
chiropractor. If you find yourself in this
uncomfortable condition, one immediate step
you can take to help relieve the ache begins with
lying on your back on a bed or the floor, then
gently bending your knees toward your chest.
Hold this position for 30 seconds. Repeat, until
pain begins to subside. This exercise helps stretch
muscles as well as relax spasms.
SBack pain is a symptom that can arise from many
causes. Many cases of back pain are caused by
stresses on the muscles and ligaments that support
the spine. Back pain is as much a part of the human
condition as the common cold.
At TWIN PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH CENTER,
we readily understand the problems involved in back
pain. We can help alleviate specific conditions and
also help improve overall health and well being by
improving the body's innate ability to heal itself.
Please call 941-412-3800 to schedule an
appointment for superior chiropractic care. We're
located at 1214-C Venice Ave. East. We offer
message therapy and have 4 licensed massage
therapists on staff.
P.S. For longer-term relief of low-back pain,
schedule regular visits to the chiropractor, who
can change the underlying problems that give rise
to back spasms.

BACK OF THE PACK

So just how many mini-
roast beef sandwiches can
one person eat?
Once I ran out of fingers
and toes, I lost count.
The wedding went off
without a hitch the other
week. In the game of Monday
morning quarterback, I sup-
pose the only thing The Wife
and I would do differently is
order less food.
Much less .food. Our at-
tempts to guard against un-
derfeeding our small wedding
party of 50 people led to
ordering enough mini-sand-
wiches arid shrimp trays to
feed all of Venice island!
Luckily, reception food
travels easily, and since The
Wife is a vegan, I had exclu-
sive rights to all the sandwich-
es. I stopped counting how
many I'd eaten about four
days into the honeymoon.
The bathroom weight scale
didn't stop counting. After just
one week of being married,
I've already packed on an
additional five pounds.
I'm pretty sure this wasn't
what my father meant whefi
he advised me getting mar-
ried will make me "more'of a
man."
Maintaining my
former weight
Not all of that weight gain
was from our honeymoon. In
the week leading up to our big
day, we dined out nearly every
night, with family that had
traveled from three different
states to attend the wedding.
My exercise routine also
took a serious hit. All of the
hustle-and-bustle led to me
sailing right by all my sched-
uled runs. I wonder if the

Venice Runners Group thinks
I've been kidnapped and
hauled off to some secret gov-
ernment detention facility
that doesn't, allow even one
phone call to a lawyer (of
course we KNOW those don't
exist in America).
While I know The Wife will
love me regardless, it's taken
years to lose 65 pounds and
keep it, off. The past four
months I've allowed myself to
gradually put 15 of those
pounds back on a danger-
ous trend I better stop right'
now.
Studies show my experi-
ence is not unique. Many
newlyweds add on a few
pounds after saying "I do."
A nice article on WebMD
.com by Jennifer Warner enti-
tied "The Dos and Don'ts of
Wedding Weight Loss" dis-
cusses many of these same
issues: Here are some of the
highlights for my fellow new-
lyweds' trying to hold onto
their. single-days form, or
even those who have been
married for many, many years
(like The Wife and I will be)
and want to regain control of
his or her weight.
No bare kitchens. Empty
shelves encourage trips to
fast-food restaurants.
Use a shopping list. This
tip applies to me. Without a
set grocery list, I tend to forget
about the fresh produce and
buy Oreo cookies instead.
Smaller portions. This
article points out that most
men are larger than women,


so portion sizes for couples
"shouldn't necessarily be
equal." On a personal note, I
have noticed my portion sizes
get larger because I tend to be
finishing off The Wife's meals.
Exercise. Sounds simple,
doesn't it, but the article
points out that couples need
to incorporate exercise as a
part of their married life. This
doesn't mean The Wife and I
need to train for a marathon
together, but we could, take
regular walks along Venice
Beach at sunset. I also believe
this helps maintain the
romance.
While this may sound silly,
I do worry about weight gain
during marriage. Healthier
lifestyles tend to equal happi-
er lives, at least that's been my
experience.
So now that I've finally
found my perfect match in
life, I don't intend to allow.
anything to interfere with our
long and happy lives together!
As for all of that extra wed-
ding cake made by the same
chef who did Happy Gilmore's
cake when he was married in
-Florida (seriously), I simply
have to remind myself I do
not have to eat it all in order to
honor the cake's memory.
But man, was it ever good!

Students, mind your manners ----


F-


DAVE BARRY
HUMOR COLUMNIST

This classic Dave Barry
column was originally pub-
lished Nov. 24, 1996.

Today's etiquette topic is:
Proper Table (burp) Manners.
I have here a letter from
Jean Gerdes, who teaches
Family and Consumer Sci-
ence to sixth-graders at the
Donegal Middle School in
Marietta, Pa. She states:
"I would like to ask your
help in teaching my students
the importance of good man-
ners. I have found that if they
can see how good manners
might help them in their
future, they are more moti-
vated to learn and practice
them. It would be a great help
if you could write a brief letter
about what is involved in
your profession and how
manners, particularly table
manners, impact your ca-
reer."
OK, here goes:
Dear Donegal Middle
School Students:
Without good table man-
ners, you will never get a pres-
tigious job such as business
executive, brain surgeon or
humor columnist. Let's con-
sider two recent college grad-


uates, "Bill" and "Bob," who
are being interviewed for a
high-level corporate position
over lunch at a fancy restau-
rant. During the meal, "Bill"
displays excellent table man-
ners; whereas "Bob" chews
with his mouth open, wipes
his mouth on his'tie and uses
his salad fork to clean his toe-
nails. Which one do you think
will get the job?
That is correct: Neither one
will get the job, because this
particular corporation has a
strict policy against hiring
people with quotation marks
around their names. But the
interviewer was definitely
more impressed with "Bill."
Another good example is
Warren Christopher, who
until his resignation held the
high-level position of U.S.
secretary of state despite
looking like a severely de-
pressed squirrel. His secret?
He had excellent table man-
ners, which he used to influ-
ence powerful foreign leaders
at state dinners.
CHRISTOPHER: May I
offer you some dessert, Your
Excellency?
FOREIGN LEADER: Sure ...
But wait! This is your last Pez!
CHRISTOPHER: Take it! I
insist! And keep the dis-
penser!
FOREIGN LEADER: Wow!
The Papa Smurf model! I
guess I'll allow a U.S. naval
base in my country after all!
Table manners have had a
similarly large impact on my
own career. When I invite
important news sources out
to lunch, I impress them by
showing that I know the
"Do's" and "Don't's" of dining
etiquette, such as:


Do shout your guest's
order into the drive-through
speaker before shouting your
own.
Do ask your guest to
please steer the car while you
apply ketchup to your ham-
burger.
Don't snatch fallen
french fries from between
your thighs and eat them
without first distracting the
news source by shouting,
"Hey, look over there!"
Yes, students at Donegal
Middle School, good table
manners do make a differ-
ence, which is why you must
listen carefully to your
Consumer Science teacher.
Because the rules of etiquette
can be tricky. Suppose you sit
down to a formal dinner, and
there are three forks at your
place setting. Which fork
should you use? The answer
- and here I am quoting
from the classic reference
work, "The Amy and Bud
Vanderbilt Guide To Table,
Manners and Boat Repair" -
is "the cleanest fork." Using
your left hand, and starting
with the outside fork, hold
each fork up and examine it
carefully for signs of crud; if
you see any, you should qui-
etly, without drawing atten-
tion to yourself, switch it with
a fork taken from the person
sitting on your immediate
right.
Likewise, Donegal Middle
students, if you're having din-
ner with the queen of
England, it is considered
improper to start eating
before she starts. You have to
pay close attention, because
sometimes the queen likes to
kid around. She'll bend over


her plate and come up mak
ing a chewing motion, so al,
her guests will start eating
but then suddenly the queer
will yell, "Hah!" and open he:
mouth wide to show that sh(
was really faking it, and all th<
guests have to spit their foo(
out. At a famous 1989 dinne:
that everybody in Englant
still talks about, the queel
successfully pulled this pranl
on Dan Quayle 11 consecu
tive times.
Also this is very impor
tant if you're at a salad bai
and there's only a small'
amount of chopped egg left
and I am in the line behind(
you, leave the chopped ego
alone, because I want it.
Also, if you are one of thosi
young people who feel thi
need to wear a baseball-stylb
cap at all times, including h
restaurants, at weddings, etc.
and you have to attend
funeral, you should, as
token of respect for thi
deceased, point your bill for
ward.
Yes, Donegal Middle stu
dents, if you take the time t(
learn these basic rules of eti
.quette, you can become ;
successful and respected
individual such as myself,
Oprah Winfrey and the pope.'
So I urge you to pay attention
in your Consumer Science
class, study hard, mind your
manners, be considerate and
- I cannot stress this point
too much take that gum
out of your mouth.
' Dave Barry is taking a
leave of absence from writing
his weekly humor column.
His classic columns appear in
the Wednesday edition of the
Venice Gondolier Sun.

Graduating senior: She did it magna cum laude


* ~-~- --~


KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


All of us in the editorial de-
partment of the Venice Gon-
dolier Sun are so proud of our
co-worker Laura Fehl. who
graduated magna cumr laude


Sunday night from the
University of South Florida
Sarasota-Manatee. Laura per-
forms many tasks at the
paper, from transcribing the
Let Em' Have It line and edit-,
ing obituaries to editing the
Class Acts page and writing
articles, the latter as time
allows. With her daughter
Katie, she will be moving to
Portland, Ore., this summer
to pursue a career in publish-
ing, a perfect fit. She is both
an organized person and also
an excellent researcher and
writer. We will miss her when
she heads west to follow her
dream, not just for her tal-
ents, but because she is a fine


young lady and good friend.
Remember her name. You will
hear it again.

It is prom time, when every
high school girl wants to look
her very best for her special
evening with her friends and
especially for her best beau.
Unfortunately, prom dresses
are very costly and new dress-
es can be budget breakers in
families looking ahead to four
years of college costs. If you
have a gently-worn prom
dress taking up valuable
space in your closet, there are
plenty of area high school
girls who would love to wear it
to this year's prom. There also


are several young men in
need of suits or evening
apparel. If you can help with
donations of new or nearly
new dresses, shoes, acces-
-sbries, purses, costume jewel-
ry, suits or gift certificates for
hair, nails, make-overs, etc.
for this year's Senior Prom,
bring the items to the Venice
High School Media Center
until Friday. May 12, or to the
front office at the high school
on Indian Avenue on the
island. Dresses can be any
size but should be in good to
excellent condition and age
appropriate.
The prom theme is Red
Carpet Premiere, and the


event will be held at the Hyatt
Hotel in Sarasota. To learn
more, call Nancy'Tessier or
Kelley Jones in the media
department at 488-6726.
The, Florida Writer's
Group meets at 7 p.m.
tonight, May 10, for a discus-
sion and workshop with
refreshments at the Sand
Dollar Book shop in the
Pattison Building on Miami
Avenue. Tomorrow, 6-7 p.m.,
Dr. Alan Xenakis talks about
his latest book, "Mineral
Miracle: Stopping Cartilage
Loss and Inflamation Na-
turally." The author will dis-
cuss his holistic approach to


alleviating pain and providing
an alternative-medicine-ap-
proach to pain management
and degeneration. Refresh-
ments will be provided.
"Little Women" continues
through May 14 on the
MainStage at the Venice Little
Theatre, 140 W. Tampa Ave.
Coming up May 11-25 is
"Tom Sawyer: the Musical."

In its May issue, Child
magazine will feature The
Colony Beach & Tennis
Resort on Longboat Key as
one of the top five selections

Letter carriers gear up



to 'Stamp Out Hunger!'


STAFF REPORT

Saturday, May 13, 2006, the
National Association of Letter
Carriers conducts its 14th
Annual Stamp Out Hunger!
food drive in an effort to help
fight hunger across the na-
tion, the largest single-day
food drive conducted by any.
organization. It's made pos-
sible by the nation's 240,000
letter carriers who collect
nonperishable food items
from homes across the coun-
try-all to benefit food banks
and pantries in over 10,000
communities.
Participating in the food
drive is easy. Just leave a
sturdy bag of nonperishable
boxed or canned food items,


such as soup, pasta, canned
vegetables and fruits, cereal
or rice next to your mailbox
before your mail delivery
Saturday, May 13. Your letter
carrier will then collect and
deliver your donation to a
food bank or pantry in your
community.
Stamp Out Hunger! is
crucial because at this time
of year many food banks
are depleted just as demand
is set to increase in the
sum-mer. According to
America's Second Harvest,
the nation's largest food
bank network, 36 million
people are food insecure,
hungry or at risk of hunger.
Approximately one in four
individuals in a soup kitchen


line is a child.
Last year, with the help of
millions of generous Amer-
icans, the letter carriers col-
lected more than 71 million
pounds of food, bringing the
13-year total to more than
695 million pounds of food.
Campbell Soup Company is
hoping to help the letter car-
riers surpass last year's im-
pressive total by kick-starting
the drive with a one-million-
pound donation of soup and
other food and beverage
items.
For more information
about the 14th Annual Stamp
Out Hunger! food drive, ask
your letter carrier, contact the
post office or visit stamp-
outhunger2006.com.
