Sarasota watering changes possible in fall


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


If the recent rains contin-
ue, people will soon have
green lawns once again.
But the temptation to keep
them green through irrigation
may not be a good idea. offi-
cials said.
Sarasota County's once-a-
week watering restrictions
will continue, since the area's
yearly rainfall deficit mea-
sures more than 9 inches.
The once-a-week restric-
tion has been in effect since
2000, and the days home-
owners are allowed to water
their lawns Tuesday and

County I commissioners
agreed recently to hold public
hearings in the fall to change
one of those days to rtlieve
pressure on the water supply.
, Tuesday watering is for
residents uith an even num-
ber address houses with
numbers ending with 0, 2, 4,

I Sunday water is for those

where the problem lies.

home on Sunday washing
their cars, doing laundry and


using water for any number
of reasons the demand for
water peaks. Add Watering
gardens and lawns and there
has been a periodic strain on
the water supply distribution
system.
Mike Hqlslnger, a horticul-
ture consultant, told the
county commissioners re-
cently that changing the
Sunday watering day to
Thursday would make a big
difference.
"It's because of the water
pressure issue and a case of
public safety," Holsinger said.
In an effort not to confuse
people and give them a
chance to get used to a possi-


ble change, Holsinger and-
Theresa Connor, the county
general, manager for water
resources planning, said the
delay in imposing such
changes is necessary.
Connor said there will be a
comprehensive public edu-
cation program to accompa-.

scaping.

AccuWeather forecast: five hurricanes to hit U.S.


Forecasters say the Northeast, Florida and the
Gulf Coast could be targets of storms predicted to


make landfall this season.

BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

A prominent group of fore-
casters has jumped the gun
on the hurricane season and
placed the East Coast of the
United States in the cross-
hairs.
SThe AccuWeather team,
based in State College, Pa.,.
sees five hurricane striking
the U.S. coastline this sum-
mer. Three of those are
expected to have winds of 110-


mph or stronger.
The forecast was released
DEATHS | IOA Monday and opens with an
Xenia Bridger Beulah Mansfield ominous statement:
Ferdinand Diestel William Meeks 'An active hurricane sea-
Frances lJhnson Fay lelson son appears imminent,
Dorothy Le Blanc William Steele which could, have major re-
Marilyn Loehr Lourdes Teran percussions for the U.S. econ-
omy and the one in six
COUPONAmericans who live on the
Affordbl Hearing. Eastern Seaboard or along the

Braulae 14 Joe Bastardi, the Accu-
Christie Hearing..... 14LG Weather hurricane expert,
DChnnes ... L said that early in the season
Eowater B. the Texas Gulf Coast faces the
Jon's Water Mart 4B highest likelihood of a hurri-
onsWaterMart ......................4B cane strike, possibly putting
Laminate Floori...................B gulf energy production in the
Twin Palms Chiropractic............ 6B line of fire.

tNERT As early as July and
GraduationTab through much of the rest of
Graduation Tab


the season, the highest level
of risk will shift to the
Carolinas, Bastardi said.
From mid-August into
early October, the window is
open for hurricane strikes to
spread, northward to the:
densely populated Northeast
coast.
At the very end of the sea-.
son, southern Florida also
faces significant hurricane
risk.
:There are few areas of the
U.S. East Coast and Gulf of
Mexico that will not be in the
bull's-eye at some point this
season', said AccuWeather's
Ken Reeves.
Complacent
The 2006 season is expect-
ed to have fewer named
storms, but \\ill still be a sea-
son of above-average storm
frequency.
Last year, there were
eight tropical cyclone land-
falls in the U.S., including
two separate strikes by
Katrina as the storm crossed
the Florida peninsula and
then plowed into the central
Gulf Coast. Four of these
were major hurricanes -
Category 3 or stronger at
landfall: Dennis, Katrina,


Rita and Wilma.
AccuWeather forecaster
Bernie Rayno said the North-
east coast needs to be on
guard, because "there is a dra-
matically increased likeli-
hood that over the next five.
years the Northeast could be
hit by a major hurricane. This
could be the year."
Rayno also noted that in
general, the fast-moving
nature of tropical cyclones in
the Northeast will leave little
tine to protect property and
lives.
Because it has been dec-
ades, since the Northeast
was hit by a major hurri-
cane, some residents in the
Northeast have become
complacent regarding the
threat of a hurricane, the
team warns.
The National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration
will be issuing its seasonal
forecast next Monday, the
start of Hurricane Prepar-
edness Week.
William Gray and Phil
Klotzbach of Colorado State
University will issue their
updated forecast on May 31,
the day before the official
start of hurricane season.
Gray and Klotzbach also will
offer landfall forecasts.

Trying to undo the Sharky's
deal isn't a done deal.
Council members want to
toss out lease amendments
for the popular and lucrative
restaurant on city-owned,
beachfront property. A week
ago, they unanimously ap-
proved a motion calling for a
lawsuit to be filed seeking to
declare all changes from six
years ago "legally unenforce-
able."
Filing of the lawsuit is not
automatic, however, as City
Attorney Bob Anderson re-
.vealed in an interview Tues-
day. The longtime legal advi-
sor to Venice has not formed a
legal opinion on the contract.
Anderson said it was "le-
gally agreed upon," but con-
tinues investigating if the
contract is enforceable. Por-
tions of the contract dealing
with restaurant expansion,
city park improvements and
lease amounts were left
blank.
And until he does that,
Venice City Council isn't
headed to court. City council


has never gone to court
against Anderson's advise in
his 17 years as city attorney.
"Until I look at all of these
things, I will have no legal
opinion," Anderson said. "It'd
be like a doctor giving a diag-
nosis without ever seeing the
patient."
Anderson plans on issuing
his verdict by the end of the
month. He was excluded
from negotiations six years
ago, which were conducted
by the former city manager.
The thinking back then
was to grant the restaurant's
expansion plans in exchange
for it paying half the cost -
$2.1 million for .public
beach and pavilion improve-
ments right next door. Cur-
rent council members believe
the restaurant is not being
charged enough in rent and'
.oppose. the 40-year contract
extension provision, which
Anderson advised back then
against passing.
No matter the outcome,
Sharky's restaurant owners
Mike Pachota and Greg
Novack will maintain control

When is a park not a park?


BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Should the city be allowed
to count a park that the public,
isn't allowed to use?
SThat was just one of the
questions Venice Planning
Commission members at-
tempted to answer Tuesday.
Work on updating the city's
comprehensive plan the
state-mandated blueprint for
all city development and ser-
vices resumed with a work-
shop discussing parks and
public spaces.
, The policies portion has a
new section that could count
privately owned lands as part
of the city's parks systems,
even though the general pub-
lic could be excluded from
even walking on the land.
The majority of commis-


sioners questioned the pro-
posal.
"I'm just saying, if I can't
walk on it, then it shouldn't be
considered a park," commis-
sioner Thomas Bixler said.
Planning and Zoning
Director Tom Slaughter ad-
mitted some "wordsmything"
still needs to be done. The
intent is not to avoid creating
new parks and open spaces,
Slaughter explained.
City staff is attempting to
recognize city codes requiring
private developers to build
parks and green spaces into
subdivisions. During this
year's strategic workshop,
Venice City Council autho-
rized this policy as a way to
avoid spending money on
creation and maintenance of

"The county passes ordi-
nances on the basis they are
good for all its citizens," Saba
said. 'A law that is good for
residents in the unincorpo-
rated areas of the county
should be just as good for
those in them."
Saba said the only time
such ordinances wouldn't
apply would be when the
cities had ordinances already
dealing with such makers.
Saba asked County At-
torney Dick Nelson if the
cities could 'have ordinances


lose nance.
'tire Nelson said the state has
icils statutes which allow county
ving law to supercede city law.
but noted that many mu-
ner nicipalities have passed ordi-
s no nances to bypass county
ance laws. He said that as far as he

Venice High seniors earn record scholarships


A record $1.4 million in awards was recognized
on Senior Awards Night, a half million more
than last year. After Florida Bright Futures
Scholarships are announced, VHS expects
the amount to exceed $3 million.


EDITOR'S NOTE: Look for the
full list of scholarship winners in
an upcoming edition.

STAFF WRITER

One in five Venice High
School seniors walked up on
the school auditorium stage
Monday evening to be recog-
nized. Each one earned a
scholarship.
Ninety-nine students out
of the 480 seniors who attend
the school were honored. All
but five of those were for
scholastic.merit scholarships.
The remainder were athletic
scholarships.
By evening's end, 284
scholarships had been pre-
sented, totaling $1,383,942.
Last year's senior celebration
featured $900,000 in awards.
Florida Bright Futures
Scholarships, are expected to
be announced in June. Last
year 190 Venice High seniors
earned $1.9 million in Bright
Futures scholarships. If Bright
Futures scholarships remain
about the same level, Venice
High seniors for 2006 could
bring in more than $3 million
in total scholarships.
Full rides
A number ofVHS students
received full rides.

earned the prestigious award.
Five awards are made each
year to Florida students. The
four-year scholarship is val-
ued at $126,000. In addition
to outstanding grades, Cas-
tellanete is drum captain in
the high school band and
plans a medical career.
Carmen DelleDonne will
attend the Naval ROTC pro-
gram at the University of
Tampa. DelleDonne, whose
four-year scholarship is val-
ued at $107,000, also receiv-
ed a .$32,000 presidential
scholarship from the univer-
sity plus an $8,000 stipend
for living expenses. He join-
ed the school's JROTC pro-
gram after enrolling at Venice
High two years ago. He plans
to pursue business studies
before entering the military.
Athletic standout Jeremie
Cooke was recognized for
receiving a full ride valued at
$94,000 to Lock Haven Uni-
versity in Pennsylvania.
Cooke is a two-time state
wrestling champion and top
baseball pitcher.
Robert Apple won the Ce-
cilian Music Society of Ven-
ice College Scholarship, as
well as a four-year music
scholarship to Florida Gulf
Coast University valued at
almost $50,000.

Scholarship. It was the sec- nized for receiving the most
ond time in as many years awards.
that a Venice High student Wiangkham, from Thai-


land, received 13 scholarships
totaling $14,500.
"She worked all year long
and applied for anything
she could get. She was deter-
mined," said Kim Kindell,
who runs the school's Rotary
Futures Program.
Rotary Futures, housed in
a portable classroom, has
computer stations and staff
ready and able to help stu-
dents search a database of
potential scholarships.
.Reid Green was the top
award winner in value of
scholarships received. He
earned nine scholarships
totaling $17,500.
Both Wiangkham and
Green intend to become
doctors. Most of their schol-
arships were granted by
local organizations and busi-
nesses in Sarasota County,
Kindell said.
Other prolific award win-
ners were: Amy Hollen, 12
scholarships; Megan Cog-
burn and Tara Lacey, nine;
Kristen Bailey, eight; Kirsten
Caudill, Kimberly Dinh, Nat-
alie Keene-Krops, Sujata Pa-
tel, and Sarah Sethi, seven
each.
VHS principal Candace
Millington called it a "won-


derful evening," with a very
festive and "Hollywood"
atmosphere.
"It says a lot about the
achievement level of our stu-
dent body and the import-
ance of partnerships with
groups like Rotary Futures.
Rotary Futures opened in 2002
and since then has had 16,000
student visits.
In 2001, a class of 575 stu-
dents was awarded $565,000
in scholarships. This year's
class was awarded $1.38 mil-
lion with a class size of 480.
I think it says we have a qual-
ity student body, dedicated
staff and a very supportive
community," Millington said.
Not all students who will
receive, a scholarship were
recognized. Awards night is
based on self-reporting by
students, some of whom
shied away from the public
recognition or hadn't receiv-
ed final word on pending
awards.
In addition to scholar-
ships, Stephanie Korszen
was named the 2006 VHS
valedictorian, while Evan
Nagle earned the honor as
salutatorian. Whitney Varn
was selected VHS Out-
standing Senior.


Future dividends
The Rotary Futures Pro-
gram, sponsored by the
Venice-Nokomis, Rotary Club
and Venice High, provides
counseling and informational
services to Venice area stu-
dents on post-secondary
educational and vocational
opportunities. Flexible sched-
uling nieans students and
their parents can visit the pro-
gram after school and in the
evening.
In addition to counseling,
the center sets up mentoring
and tutoring for SAT/ACT and
other course needs; advises
parents individually on post-
secondary opportunities;
provides assistance in filling
out financial aid forms; and
maintains a jobs board to
assist local employers look-
.ing for help and students
looking for work.
It also conducts seminars
on resume and essay writing,
and sponsors field trips to
technical schools, businesses
and colleges.
The program runs under
the direction of the Venice
High principal. It has an
operating board of 22 com-
munity citizens, led by Venice
Gondolier Sun publisher Bob
Vedder.
The center is funded by
grants and community sup-


port, with ongoing sponsor-
ship coming from the Venice-
Nokomis Rotary Club.
One unique feature of the
Rotary Futures Program is its
extensive database of college
scholarships, well-known to
Venice High students. It was
developed by a private com-
pany for RFP which receives
a finders fee for each listing
sold.
Students can come in and
search the Internet database
by entering their specific
information (SAT scores,
CREST rank, career inter-
ests, location) and addition-
al criteria. The computer
sorts through more than
500 scholarships, identify-
ing ones that a student
qualifies for.
"The typical high school
senior comes up with 60-120
scholarships to review and
make decisions about," said
Kim Kindell, program direc-
tor.
"Our computer program
has links to Web sites with
online scholarship applica-
tions,,or the student can ob-
tain a paper application from
our files. Three years ago a
student would have had to
sort through a 2-inch thick
book of listings. This is so
much more user friendly,"
Kindell said.

School board recommends impact fee credits


The board is asking the county commission to
amend the impact fee ordinance to include a
process for handling past contributions and for
resolving credit claims by master developers that
have sold off property to others.

Pelican Pointe developers oper agreed to set aside a 20-


acre parcel for a future ele-
mentary school site as a con-
dition of DRI approval. In
1999, Rodgers and the school
board entered into an agree-
ment that substituted a pay-
ment of $3.50,000 in lieu of the
site donation.
The site donation require-
ment preceded the educa-
tional impact fee ordinance.
The ordinance, adopted in
2004, requires an impact fee
for residential building per-
mits of $2,032 per single-fam-
ily unit and $474 per multi-
family unit.
Future credits
Tuesday the school board
voted to recommend a credit
of $227,412 for the Hatchett
Creek DRI to BOCC.
The lower amount is partly
due to fewer than expected
units being built, and partly


because "full credit for the
contribution against future
impact fees would leave the
pre-2004 units without any
impact mitigation at all,"
wrote school attorney Alan
Roddy in a May 4 memo to
the school board making the
recommendation.
The recommended credit
acts as a placeholder while
the school board requests
BOCC to amend the impact
fee ordinance and to grant
credits to subsequent build-
ers, as well as original devel-
opers.
"As currently written,"
Roddy wrote, "the ordinance
addresses only credits for
prospective contributions
toward facilities that are listed
at the time on the school
board's capital improvements
program.
"Since credits are charges


against individual building
permits, the present system
does not clearly address
either past contributions by
DRI developers or provide a
mechanism for resolving
credit claims by master devel-
opers that have sold off prop-
erty to others."
School attorneys offered to
work with the county attor-
ney's office on language to
change the ordinance.
In litigation
In a similar matter, the
school board is also recom-
mending the BOCC. give
Palmer Ranch Development,
Inc. a credit of $180,465.
Palmer Ranch representa-
tives began requesting credits
informally beginning in 2004
for the full value of a 77-acre
site that was deeded to the
school'board in 1999, accord-


ing to Roddy. The site is dom-
inated by wetlands.
Board special counsel
Robert Nabors, whose firm
developed the original imn-
pact fee ordinance, offered
Palmer Ranch a reimburse-
ment of $550,000 as a com-
promise back on October 19,
2004. Palmer Ranch did not
respond, except to sue the
county a few month later over
the way impact fees credits
are computed, according to
Roddy.
"We believe that it would
be advisable for the school
board and county to resolve
this issue through adminis-
trative means rather than civil
litigation," wrote Roddy.

PARK from Page 1 A
new parks.
But planning commission-
ers are worried that develop-
ers could misuse the classifi-
cations for uses like golf
courses that keep the general
public out.
They pointed to the 70-
acre nature preserve next to
the Myakka River called
Venetian Nature Park, which
opened last year. Surrounded
by barbed wire fencing, this
has been labeled the area's
"largest private park' because
only residents of Venetian
Golf & River Club are allowed
to use it.
City policies require a
developer to dedicate 7 acres
of land for park use for each
1,000 functional population it


creates. Those numbers
drops to 3.5 acres per 500-999
population and 1.0 acres per
100-499 new residents.
This requirement doesn't
mean very much if only the
residents of a gated subdivi-
sion are the only ones allowed
to use it, they said.
"If there is not public
access, then it should not fig-
ure into the parks count,"
commissioner Benny Weaver
said.
City Attorney Bob Ander-
son also weighed in and cau-
tioned staff to be careful with
policy wording. One section
under environmental conser-
vation requires developers to
provide "minimum conserva-
tion or open space," when it's
clear that staff intentions are
the exact opposite.


As for defining of parks
and open space, staff needs to
read the new and revised
policies as if they are a devel-
oper trying to save a buck,
Anderson warned.
"If you don't, you're going
to get strange things with
developers wanting to count
grass in medians as green
space and parks. These are
the things to watch out for,"
Anderson said.
Venice must submit its
new comprehensive plan to
the state by the end of this
year. Go online to venicegov
.com and click on the En-
vision Venice link for the lat-
est on the process.

Venice City Council's legal challenge of the Sharky's on the Pier contract isn't for sure. The
beachfront restaurant on city land, pictured above, has had a deal with Venice since 1986, but
current council members want to challenge expansion provisions and charge more in rent.


CONTRACT I-, I.l.1A
of the restaurant at least until
2011, when it expires under
the original terms agreed
upon in 1986. They have a
five-year option lasting until
2016.
Venice has to, challenge
now because contract provi-
sions are being triggered with
construction of the public
parking lot and beach pavil-
io6'. 'The contract requires
Sharky'sto pay half of the $2.1
million cost which the
owners want to do in ex-
change for automatic expan-
sion approval.
Councilapproved the con-
struction contract week ago,
at the same meeting they
voted o challenge the deal.


city had to make a conscious
decision whether or not to
benefit fom the terms of the.
ideal," Anderson said. "bYu
can't take their money, and
then try to kill the (contract)."
Once the contract changes
were approved six years ago,
hardly anybody complained


until December 2003 when
Sharky's attempted to fill in
some of the contract's "blank"
spots. Council member John
Moore challenged the restau-
rant's expansion plans, but
despite those complaints, it
wasn't until last Tuesday that
council ever took a vote on
the contract's validity.
Sharky's owners argue it's a
legal deal and the city will
make more money regard-
less.
SCurrent lease terms have
ground rent at about $1,000 a
month ($12,000 a year) and a
gross sales rent of 5 percent of
all sales exceeding $300,000.
In 2004, that amounted to
$240,765 in sales rent plus the
land rent for a total of
$252,000.


If expansion is approved,
the ground rent would
increase to $75,000 a year and
the 5 percent of gross sales
doesn't kick in until it exceeds
$1.5 million, according to city
council meeting minutes
from April 25, 2000. Using fig-
ures from 2004, that means
Sharky's would've actually
paid the city $255,000 in rent.
Expansion means more
sales which means more
money for the city, Pachota
said in an interview last week
"No matter how you look
at it; the city's still getting a
nickel on every dollar. ... It's
not like we haven't been a
good tenant," Pachota said.

WATERING from Page 1A


Sarasota plan to follow any
changes in the watering days,
and noted that talks are ongo-
ing with North Port officials.
If Sarasota were to change
its water days, this could pose
a confusion problem for peo-
ple living in Englewood.
The Englewood Water
District follows the rules of
the two counties it serves.
This has never been a prob-
lem, because the days are
identical.
Charlotte County is con-
sidering a similar change to
that in Sarasota, but that dis-
cussion is still in the prelimi-
nary stages, Charlotte County
Utilities spokeswoman Leigh
Sprimort said.
The restrictions include
allowing no irrigation
between 10 am. and 4 p.m.
and making sure the maxi-
mum amount of water is lim-
ited to three-quarters of an
inch in each irrigation zone,
once, on each allowable
watering day.
All restrictions apply
whether the source of water is
a well, pond or from a utility
system.


Other rules
There are some exceptions
to the general once-a-week
watering rules.
Flower beds, vegetable gar-
dens and other non-lawn
areas may be irrigated as
needed using a hose with a
shut-off nozzle. These areas
may also be watered using so-
called micro-irrigation and
other forms, of low-volume
irrigation, on any day of the
week.
Newly planted lawn and
landscape areas may be
watered any day of the week
for a 60-day establishment
period that begins the day of
installation. However, no irri-
gation is permitted between
10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Reporting violations
For more information
about watering restrictions or
to report watering violations,
contact the Sarasota County
Call Center at 861-5000 and
ask for Utilities Customer
Service.
The first violation results in
a warning; the second results
in a $100 fine; the third brings


$300, and the fourth, $500.
In Charlotte County, peo-
.ple can call 764-4300 and
enter 0. The first violation also
results in a warning, but the
second violation is $25, the
third is $100 and fourth is
$500.

OUR VIEW



Sarasota should pursue impact study of basin


s the Legislature-funded, independent
A cumulative impact study of water in the
Peace River Basin winds down, it might
seem odd that Sarasota County has
raised the need for another, similar study to
be done by the Army Corps of Engineers.
More research on the current study -
overseen by the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection and the
Southwest Florida Water Management
District lends validation to Sarasota
County's call for a second study, however.
Sarasota County is calling for its neighbors
in Charlotte and DeSoto counties, the state
and federal governments and the phosphate
industry to chip in for an $8 million-or-so
study of where our water is going and how
much we might have for future generations.
Critics say that is too much money to
spend when the FDEP study is nearly com-


plete. They also point to the fact that Sarasota
County was not eager to help finance
Charlotte County's phosphate fight, but now
that phosphate mining may threaten the
Myakka River basin, the shoe is on the other
foot.
We support Sarasota County's request for
a second study. Here are some reasons why:
As Sarasota County Commissioner
Shannon Staub charged, the FDEP has a rep-
utation deserved or not of being too
close to the phosphate industry. That auto-
matically casts a cloud over the current study
that while done independently by a cred-
itable group will be compiled by FDEP,
which will then make recommendations.
While Sarasota County did not directly
support Charlotte County's phosphate law-
suit basing its reluctance on a difference of
opinion over the choice of counsel it did


give $500,000 or so to pay for expert witness-
es in the court hearings.
It has been suggested that instead of a
direct cash payment, Charlotte County could
donate research prepared for the Ona mine
lawsuit to a Corps of Engineers study.
Sarasota County's idea for a study is not
new. Rep. Katharine Harris sought up to $8
million in federal funds for such a study as
long as four years ago.
Staub said she is not aware of past criti-
cism of the Corps of Engineers' ability to do
such a study. She said the Corps is the most
independent agency that could be hired to
do the study and has the most resources to
accomplish the task.
We have a keen interest in hearing the
results of the current impact study being
completed by PBS&J, hired by FDEP and
Swiftiud for about $750,000. PBS&J Inc. has


a good reputation and has gone back more
than a century to track the flow of water in
the Peace River Basin.
Still, as Staub pointed out, $750,000 does
not go far in a study of this complexity. The
idea that this study will give us all the
answers is naive. And, most important, the
current study's goal stops short of projecting
the future and what steps must be taken to
secure our water supply.
Funding will be the major hurdle for
Sarasota County. Another issue is time.
Obtaining a commitment from the Corps of
Engineers and allowing it time to complete
the study means, perhaps, as long as six or
seven years.
Yet by using results of both studies, all the
stakeholders can feel more confident we
have a handle on the problems and potential
solutions for our water needs.


Informing council


on building height


i 9
ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST


The recent joint meeting of
city council and the planning
commission suggested that
most members of those im-
portant bodies recognize that
taller is not necessarily better
- but not everyone is on
board.
What should inform the
decisions of council? There is
a good bit of information they
could andI think should -
consider.
In the way of background,
they were considering the
pending "height overlay dis-
trict" in the downtown area
west of city hall. They were
not prepared to limit heights
to 35 feet (a three-story equiv-
alent), the standard for single-
family residential buildings.
Nor were they able to coa-
lesce on 35 feet over 10 feet of
parking. A third proposition
would allow 35 feet, plus 10
for parking with another 10
feet if "conditionally approv-
ed" by council.
Vice Mayor Fred Hammett
did not support absolute lim-
its, a position similar to that of
council member Rick Tacy,
who advocated "flexibility."
Not having set limits and
advocating "flexibility" are
code words for allowing de-
velopment interests to make
another million dollars or so
per floor. Some folks have
never seen a "flexible" 10 feet
they did not like.
That point was made, in
essence, by council member
Bill Willson, who affirmed
that downtown was not the
place for height flexibility,
putting him in good compa-
ny, as we shall see below.
A poll of the council and
commission members taken
to give city planners a sense of
the meeting suggested that
the majority favored
35+10+10 conditional on
council approval. Council
member John Simmonds said
that such approvals should be
rare.
The actual action on pro-
posed height limits will be
worked over by the city staff
and attorney before being
considered for final action.
Since it changes existing zon-
ing limits, it must be carefully
crafted and considered.
Pros and cons
I mentioned Bill Willson
was in good company in that


his view is consistent with the
following views:
1. The vast majority of citi-
zens in a variety of forums,
Envision Venice meetings,
planning commission and
council meetings, letters to
the editor, etc. have empha-
sized they want to preserve
the small-town nature of
Venice, specifically mention-
ing not wanting additional
taller buildings.
2. About 2,000 people from
the community signed peti-
tions supporting 35-foot
height limits. While these
petitions might have had
technical flaws, there was no
mistaking the intent of the
signers.
3. John Nolen in his origi-
nal plan for Venice planned
only the building on Tampa
and Nassau avenues, origi-
nally a hotel, up to four floors
(about 40-45 feet). Dr. Bruce
Stephenson, a Nolen authori-
ty brought to Venice to speak
by the Venice Area Historical
Society, advised that Venice
not surpass that building in
height if it wished to preserve
its unique nature.
4. Dr. Charles D.Warren, an
architect and Nolen expert,
also invited to Venice to speak
by the VAHS, added his view
about building within the city.
"You should do it without
going up," he said in a brief
interview after his speech. He
pointed out the unique
charm of Venice, which is a
national model, and com-
pared it with the charm of
Charleston, S.C., a city that
has restricted heights.
5. Perhaps the most inter-
esting source for advising the
council comes from city plan-
ning staff in its recent Eval-
uation and Appraisal Report
to the state. (Forgive me for a
lengthy quotation, but the
information is highly rele-
vant.)
"The planning directives
established in the 1999 com-
prehensive plan addressed
issues related to quantity of
services and land; they did
not address quality of services
and development character.
Thus, it is evident why the
community has concerns
about how growth and devel-
opment are affecting their
quality of life."
The report goes on to rec-
ommend the city establish a
"new planning paradigm in
which quality of life andcom-
munity character considera-
tions determine future plan-
ning strategies."
All right then the citi-
zens, the experts and the
planners are all advocating
for lower-scale development
and attending to quality of
life. What more do city coun-
cil members want to inform
their decisions, not just on

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


What part of'No' don't they get?


Editor:
The magic in the word, "No."
It's hard to feel sorry for a person who complains about vis-
itors who overextend their stay and never help with costs. He
can say "No!" to protect his family's lifestyle.
A developer asked for a big price reduction by a buyer says
"No," because those home prices reflect his current costs, and
he has suppliers, workers and investors to pay.
When developers want to sell more houses, our Sarasota
government leaders say "No," you can't sell any more until we
collect all the funds needed to provide water, roads and other
infrastructure the new owners will need.
OK, that doesn't really happen. But our leaders are becom-
ing more responsible in collecting impact fees to pay for
growth's infrastructure, rather than letting current residents
and businesses pay the costs.
I was disappointed in two recent editorials in the Gondolier
Sun with opinions that ran counter to today's view that growth
should pay full impact fees. One praised the current policy of
Swiftmud, our regional water authority, of subsidizing new
water facilities to meet growth's needs, using tax money col-
lected from current residents through taxes on their property.
The other suggested building toll roads to meet the demands
of growth; in effect, forcing current residents to bear the incon-
venience'of such roads as well as their cost.
The magic in the word, "No" is available to everyone; it is
ordinary courage and a sense of fair play.

Missed the boat. I think the powers that be have really
missed the boat in not buying the Landmark restaurant prop-
erty for parking. What everybody seems to forget is that
Epiphany Cathedral is not a public parking lot. If there should
ever be a day when the cathedral isnot as accommodating as
it has been, the city of Venice is going to hurt with all its festi-
vals and things. So, while I know it was very expensive, things
can only get more expensive in the future.

height but on the develop-
ment of "North Venice?"
If these are the "pros," who
are the "cons?" Well, not sur-
prisingly, the most outspoken
are people who hope to make
money from height and densi-
ty.
Developer Mike Miller,
albeit a very charitable man,
would like to add a seven-
story condo/hotel to down-
town. Interestingly, two other
developers are planning con-
do/hotels in Nokomis on U.S.
41 and neither has a tall
building in mind, although
presumably they are interest-
ed in profit.


Miller's agent, Jeffrey
Boone, has on countless
occasions presented to city
council and the planning
commission on the need to
make more room for new res-
idents, not mentioning the
impact on "livability" of the
city.
There are a few other polit-
ical allies hoping to gain eco-
nomically who support this
direction, but no noticeable
nonpolitical citizens groups,
historical societies or others
seem to be in the camp that
would approve more height.
So that is the choice for the
council members. Will they


go with the experts who do
not hope to profit from more
height and who have a
demonstrated love for Venice
and Nolen's model city, or will
they "follow the money?"

Bass fishing was hot and heavy


MR. SHEEPSHEAD
FISHING COLUMNIST

Marvin Lurie and Mr.
Sheepshead went bass fish-
ing a couple of Thursdays
ago. We fished in a series of
private ponds. He out-fished
me as usual. You may not
believe the figures that I'm
going to throw by you. We
started fishing about 2:45
p.m. and finished by 5:45


p.m. It was absolutely fan-
tastic.
Here's the tally not count-
ing his last fish: Marvin 13
bass, mostly 2-4 pounders. I
caught seven, mostly 2-3
pounders. Conservatively,
Marvin's tally was about 35
pounds. My total was at least
15 pounds.
Now for the rest of the
story. Marvin's last fish was
not included in the above. It
was 23-24 inches, we esti-
mate 8 or 9 pounds. That
makes the grand total a
whopping 60 pounds of
bass in three hours. I think
with those figures, we would
have won most bass tourna-
ments.
There's more to this story.
Every bass, plus numerous
lost fish were hooked on
plastic worms, dipped in my
new "Freshwater Magic
Formula."
I have a new assistant'that
you can get fishing reports


from. His name is Tom
Deans. He hangs, out at
Anita's Sandcastle at the
south jetty. Stop by and find
out what's happening at the
jetty.
Now here's the rest of this
story. Tom, also known as
Tommy, is Anita's 5-year-old
son. I'm not kidding, talk to
him for a few minutes and
you'll walk away scratching
your head, thinking you just
spoke to a 30-year-old fisher-
man.
The fishing, particularly
in the evening, has been
improving at Sharky's Pier.
They've been catching a few
king mackerel, barracudas,
shark and Spanish mackerel.
Some of the sharks have
been 6-8 feet. I'll talk to you
again next week fellow
Sheepsheadites.

You can contact Mr
Sheepshead/Dave Hack at
486-1998 or 321-8849.

Chipper mill fiire still ,buming


Both North Port and the state Division of Forestry

have the authority to charge the owner for the

cost of putting out the fire, which is being blamed

on spontaneous combustion.


BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
NORTH PORT EDITOR

Smoke continues to billow
from the 30-foot piles of de-
caying vegetation at the Joe
Jeff Street chipper mill in
North Port Estates.
On Monday, most city
commissioners questioned if
taxpayers have to footthe bill
for extinguishing the slow-
burning mulch fire North Port
firefighters responded to at
7:55 a.m. Saturday. The dis-
trict has two firefighters and
one unit posted at the mill
because the fire is still burn-
ing. The chipper mill is shut
down to outside business
until the fire is completely
quelled.
After research and calls to
city attorney Rob Robinson,
fire district officials reported
the city can charge for the
resources needed to fight the
chipper mill fire because it's
out of compliance with city
code. It's being fined $500 a
day for several violations.
"A lawsuit was filed against
the company .Venice Land
Clearing," Robinson con-
firmed Monday.
Shortly after the city's law-
suit was filed, ownership of
the chipper mill business
changed hands. This caused
the city to have to amend the
suit.
The chipper mill being
sold was a "direct result" of
the lawsuit, Robinson said.

Spontaneous combustion


Steven Crowell.
Because of the drought
and low moisture, the pile
began drying out, reducing
the composting process. This
caused oxidation to speed ip
and sparked the blaze, ac-
cording to the North Port Fire
District.
On Saturday, the fire dis-
trict and North Port Utilities
linked more than 1,000 feet of
hose to a more than 25-acre
lake owned by neighbor
Henry Jakimer and the estate
of Chuck Palm. Eight sprin-
klers are being used to satu-
rate the piles.

More questions
Jakimer and his neighbors
have been working for several
years to get the commission
to act on the repeated chipper
mill violations.
"Everyone in the neighbor-
hood is concerned; they real-
ized we are getting a tidal
wave here," North Port Es-
tates resident Tom Levesque
said. "Several years ago, the
mill didn't bother neighbors
because the piles weren't so
high. But over the years, more
dump trucks have come
down the road, tearing it up,
and the piles grew beyond
anything legally reasonable.
We warned the city that
potential fires there could
threaten the homes in neigh-
borhood."

deputy chief of administra-
tion, said the mill isn't allowed

Nine North Port firefighters and several Division of Forestry workers used water from a nearby lake Saturday to contain a fire
smoldering inside a mulching pit business on Joe Jeff Street in North Port Estates.


Firefighters expect the fire in the mulch pit, which is filled with decaying vegetation, will burn for several days.

County happy with legislative session n


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER'


A few weeks ago the
Sarasota County commis-
sioners were told that the
2006 Florida Legislature bills
would offer a mixed bag of
results.
Fast forward to a few days
after the last bill was passed
and the results are much
clearer and the .benefits to
the county are rich indeed.
County Manager for Inter-
governmental Relations Mar-
sha Hosack updated the
board recently on the legis-
lative session that ended
May 5.
She mentioned that there
is still some work to do to
get a true feel for the scope
of the 361 bills passed by
the Legislature, but overall
she said it is a
good result
for the coun-

Commission
Chair David
Mills said
that he be-
lieved the
state had its Patterson
best session
in years, as far as impacts to
the county.
County Administrator Jim
Ley said the session played
itself out in a somewhat pre-
dictable manner because this
is an election year and
because the county took an
offensive stance on key is-
sues.
Next year, Ley said, there
is going to be a tough battle.
on several issues, such as
charter rule for the county
and transportation funding.
The Legislature approved
a.bill that could bring $15
million to keep the Cincin-
..tijed^^ft^ fW^-_.f
'tme county, either at Ed i
Stadium or a new location
at the Sarasota County Fair-
grounds.
Other teams eligible for
money are the Pittsburgh
Pirates, Balt-
imore Orioles,
Cleveland
Indians and
Tampa Bay
Devil Rays. A
late wrinkle
is 'that the
legislation
-added the
Ley New York
Mets in Port
St. Lucie as a sixth team
vying for money.
Signing bonus
Hosack said the details
are still unclear about
whether the Mets would get
money if one of the other
.teams backed away or
whether the Mets are a real
threat to take money away
from the Reds.
The county must submit
a plan that will keep the
Reds in town for at least
another 15 years and possi-
bly longer. If the Mets are in
the running, the plan will
need to be reviewed by the
state and then ranked, with
the top five teams receiving
the $15 million outlay. ,
The bill also limits the
amount of money the county
bed tax can pay.for any sta-
dium work. The limit is $2'
million and is not expected
to drastically affect the Reds'
plans.
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson said she was a little
concerned about the limita-
tions, since there are already
rules that guide the tax.
In. other legislative news,
an emergency shelter bill
will now allow counties to
use infrastructure surtax
revenues to harden certain

While those are the high-

to prepare for next year will
begin shortly.

Some speed bumps now come with a cost


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


From this point forward,
neighborhoods that want to
install elaborate traffic-
calming devices to slow traf-


fic or discourage people from
using their streets will start
paying some of the cost.
The ordinance change
means greater local owner-
ship of the traffic manage-
ment efforts.


Up to this point, the coun-
ty had a two-tiered system of
traffic-calming devices: one
system that cost locals noth-
ing and one requiring the
community share half of the
costs.

so-called "traffic-calming"
options, including speed
cushions, neckdowns, raised
crosswalks without brick
surfaces, speed tables with-
out brick surfaces and speed
tables with imprint.
The county will pay 75
percent of the cost of medi-
un-sized projects, while a
local public improvement
district would pay the bal-
ance.
The board supported the
idea in hopes that it would
force communities to be in-
vested in the projects, rather
than 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 proj-
ects, 75 percent for others
and 50 percent for the most
expensive projects, said
county Traffic Engineer Don
Galloway.
The free projects are for
simplJ things, such as signs
or street line painting. The
county will pay 50 percent
for projects like speed tables
and intersection changes.

Setting the tables
The Gondola project,
which currently has seven
speed tables planned for a
loop off Shamrock Boulevard,
was what prompted the rules
change.
It was revealed during a
public hearing Wednesday
that the residents along
Gondola Drive originally
asked for only four speed
tables and that it was the
county engineers who rec-
ommended the extra tables
to discourage people from
driving on each part of the
loop.
The speed tables need to
be about 600 to 700 feet
apart, Galloway said.
The Gondola/Bal Harbour,
i dject 1ilosir the'`ctinty
about $40,000. The work is
still being engineered, and
the Traffic Advisory Council
and county commissioners
will need to approve the
final project.
Two outspoken residents
of the G6ndola Drive neigh-
borhood spoke before the
commissioners Wednesday,
arguing for speed tables.
"The ones we asked for
are modest and have a great
purpose," Richard Gamel
said. "We are starting to see
a great deal of cut-through
traffic."
With the pending comple-
tion of the Pinebrook Road
extension and the construc-
tion along Center Road, the
number of vehicles using
their neighborhood is ex-
pected to get worse in the
coming months, Gamel said.
Cynthia Crowe said a gas
leak on U.S. 41 Tuesday
created a mess in her neigh-
borhood.
"We cannot stop growth
or traffic," Crowe said. "Slow
the traffic down. Please."
The Gondola Drive speed
tables will not be installed
anytime soon because it is
now up to the residents to
get more than 67 percent of
the homeowners to approve
them, a' feat the residents
have six months to complete.

The tastiest part of an on-
going project to change how
people view nursing homes
was held recently in the form
of the First Annual Great
Cook's Challenge.
Eight of the area's nursing
homes were invited to partici-
pate in the challenge to prove
which nursing home has the
best food and to dispel the
myth once and for all that nurs-
ing homes have terrible food.
Three of the area's nursing
homes were able to attend
and participate in the event:
Village On The Isle, Luke Hav-
en; Pinebrook; and Sunset
Lake Health Rehab.
"This event is part of an
ongoing project that was de-
signed to help change peo-
ple's perspectives about nurs-
ing homes," Cyndi Calk of
Pinebrook and the event fa-
cilitator said. "People mistak-
enly believe that the food in
nursing homes is terrible. We
had this cook off to change


people's minds."
Part of this ongoing project
includes other events such as
occasions that invite area res-
idents and children to visit
the facility. At Christmas,
Pinebrook hosts a lighted
courtyard with carols sung by
Pinebrook's own choir and
breakfasts with Santa. During
the Kentucky Derby, children
in the area brought their
horses to the facility to show
off to the residents. Two years
ago, the Platters played at
Pinebrook, and the commu-
nity was invited.
"The community is always
invited to these events," add-
ed Calk. "And,. these events
are always a great opportuni-
ty for people to change their
perceptions."
The food at the event was
pretty tasty, as good as one
could get at many restaurants
today. Each retirement home
chef was on site and prepared
all the food representative of
his or her facility.
Roan Forrest is the head
chef at Sunset Lake. His sig-


nature dish is his baked fish,
which uses tilapia, but he had
an array of choices to select
from, including a succulent
meatloaf dish in addition to a
savory chicken plate. But
what outshone any of his en-
trees was his pumpkin pie,
which had enough spice to
make it unforgerfable.
The competition was stiff.
.,Hans Webber, the head
chef from Village On The Isle
offered a sweet and tender
sliced pork topped with stuff-
ing that was well-liked by the
crowd. Webber also,offered a
lobster penne, featuring real
lobster tails atop penne pasta.
Topping off his selections was
an apple cobbler sprinkled
with raspberries and topped
with a dollop of whipped
cream.
Pinebrook chef Mary Hig-
gins heated up the competition
with her delicious cream soup,
garnished with a fresh mush-
room slice and parsley. She
served fish and chicken on
plates thatwere garnishedwith
festive corn and mashed pota-


toes with gravy side dishes.
W which chef was the best?
Calk let the judges decide,
but she also took votes from
the 200-plus people who
attended the event to obtain a
community vote.
Judges Brian Knecht, Mike
Leopold, Vee Garry-Chillui,
John Ryan and David Bennett
were the ultimate decision-
makers as to which chef would
receive the $1,000 prize for best
entree. There were four cate-
gories a chef could win: presen-
tation, community vote, free
choice and entree. Entree was
the only category with a cash
prize, but each winner from
each category received a tro-
phy.
Forrest from Sunset Lake
was very happy to have won
his $1,000 check for winning
Best Entree, and when asked
what he was going to do with
it, he responded, "I'm going to
go home and celebrate!"
Overall, the event.was suc-
cessful. Calk anticipates that
more of the area's rehabilita-

tion and skilled nursing
homes will attend the event
next year. More than 200 peo-
ple were able to sample food
from some local nursing
homes, and perhaps these
people will be able to spread
the word that nursing home
food is just as good as that
found in any restaurant, if not
better.
SThe final results were:

Medical Engineering Volunteers of Florida Inc. receives grant


BY BRUCE ISBELL
GUEST WRITER

Medical Engineering
Volunteers of Florida Inc.
:(MEV) has announced the
receipt of a grant from the
Walter Haskins Fund in mem-
;ory of Stacy Haskins of the
,Community Foundation of
Sarasota in the amount of
$11,000.
The grant will be used to
fund the design, engineering
and construction of five
wheelchair ramps and associ-
ated miscellaneous building
modifications, for low-
;income persons with disabili-
ties, significantly en-hancing
'accessibility. While the num-
ber of clients assisted by this
grant is relatively small, the
benefits are significant. The
ability to remain in their
homes with a greater degree
of independence is incalcula-
ble. Family members and
caregivers gain peace of mind
'knowing that should the need
arise for an emergent exit, it
can be done in a safe and
expedient manner.
MEV's mission is to assist
elderly, disabled or disadvan-
;taged persons, through the
design, engineering and
iinnovation of equipment and


facilities, to allow them to live
independently and safely in
their own homes. If a client is
unable to pay for any or all of
the costs of the assistance
required, MEV endeavors to
obtain the necessary funds
from outside sources, such as
private donations, grants, etc.
MEV ensures all work per-.
formed is compliant with the
requirements of the Amer-
ican Disability Act and the
Florida Accessibility Code for
Building Construction.
In 2005, MB' provided
assistance to approximately
100 clients, an increase of 25
percent over 2004. People
assisted by MEV are often
invisible 'because they have
disabilities and limited in-
come. The community can be
better served by greater inclu-
sion and the diversity that this:
population can bring.
MEV always has a backlog
of requests for assistance, and
anyone who is interested in
volunteering or acquiring
additional information,
should contact Bruce Isbell at
(800) 290-2605.

Bruce Isbell is director,
finance and administration,
of Medical Engineering
Volunteers of Florida Inc.

STAFF REPORT


Epiphany students in kin-
dergarten through eighth
grade teamed up for their
Annual Field Day April 28.
Under the direction of EE.
teacher John Jencks, olympic
field events were designed to
reinforce the school's physical
fitness program. Each class
was split into two teams, blue
and white. The students then
competed against each other
in relays, obstacles and field
games.
The day has always been a
favorite of students and facul-
ty alike so popular that
Cardinal Mooney High
School students enjoying a
day off from school decided
to volunteer to help run the'
day's activities.
The kids enjoyed having
their mentors back on the
field and the Epiphany gradu-
ates enjoyed being back at
their alma matter.
The blue and white are
always quite evenly matched
and once again this year, it
came down to the final event

Epiphany Cathedral
School has been in charge of
cleaning up Hecksher Park on
the island ofVenice since they
adopted it as a service project
many years ago. This year,
Epiphany fifth graders took


this job as a community ser-
vice project. Each month they
walk to the park, armed with
garbage bags and rubber
gloves, and they talk trash.
Next week, the fifth graders
will hand down the job to the
, current fourth-grade class as
they do their final park clean

coordinate the park clean up
once a month. Each month
they pick up and dispose of a
surprising 10-11 pounds of
trash. The kids have enjoyed


the project.
They are happy to get
some fresh air and make their
community a cleaner, more
beautiful place to be. It also
makes the students aware of
the world around them and
that littering makes trash pile
up.

'r/ "Whiplash"
is a non-medical
term that is used to describe a neck
injury that is related to sudden
distortions of the neck, usually
caused when an automobile occupant is
struck from behind. The most common
symptom is pain due to mild muscle strain or
minor tearing of the soft tissue. Other injuries
include nerve damage, disc damage, and in the
most severe cases, ruptures of ligaments in the
neck and fractures of the cervical vertebrae.
These symptoms may last a short time, or they
can last longer and include headaches, dizziness,
and tingling in the arms. It is suspected that the
biological cause of long-term whiplash symptoms
is nerve damage, which may be addressed with
chiropractic treatment.
At TWIN PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH
CENTER, we readily understand the problems
involved in whiplash injuries. 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
S1214-C Venice Ave. East. We offer massage
therapy and have 4 licensed massage therapists
on staff.
P.S. The headrest in an automobile is actually
a head restraint that is intended more to protect
the iead than to provide comfort.

Rest your running shoes, ride a bike Saturday


J.J. Andrews
BACK OF THE PACK
Nearly four months ago I
wrote about the dangers
involved in me riding a bike.
Not from other cars, but
from my ineptitude at bal-
ancing and steering a bicy-
cle.
Little has changed since
then. I still do not own a


bicycle and prefer jaunting
around Venice island with a
pair of running shoes.
After what's been more
than a year's worth of con-
vincing, the volunteer orga-
nizer for the VWP
Trailblazers Bike Patrol
group, Mike Gippert, nearly
had me convinced to ride a
bicycle this Saturday.
And then I came up with
an excuse The Wife sched-
uled a combination yard and
moving sale for this week-
end.
This excuse I've pawned
off on Mike is monumental.
This is the first time I've used.
being married as an excuse
to get out of something (I've
been married less than three
weeks).
I can justify my actions


ATA GLANCE
* WHAT: Venetian Waterway Park (VWP) Bike Day at the Circus
Bridge
.WHEN: 10 a.m.-noon, Saturday, May 20
* EVENTS: Biking information, favors, bike fitting, maintenance
tips, safety booklets, complimentary Gatorade, granola bars and
more.
* ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: National Bike Month, go online
to bikeleague.org; the VWP, go online to vabi.org; and VWP Bike
Day, call VABI at 488-2236 and ask for Debbie Luce.


because the yard sale is, in
reality, a farewell to all mate-
rial connections to single-
dom: framed movie posters
of Happy Gilmore and The
Blues Brothers, music CDs
filled with screeching guitars
and vocals, and a coat that
makes me feel like John
Wayne.
Oh yeah, The Wife is sell-


ing some dishes and old
clothes or something.
But if you're not question-
ing the value of all my stuff
Saturday, I highly encourage
you to celebrate Venetian
Waterway Park (VWP) Bike
Day at the Circus Bridge.
Use of the VWP bike path
is growing. Monthly use fig-
ures for cyclists, walkers, in-


line skaters and joggers show
8,800 for January; 13,200 for
February; 15,400 for March;
and 9,200 for April, accord-
ing to numbers provided by
SGippert. Use is expected to
skyrocket with the opening
of the section linking the
Venice Train Depot to the
Sarasota County Rails-to-
Trails and the downtown
trailhead near Venice Little
Theatre.
This family-friendly event
is 10 a.m.-noon and is part of
National Bike Month. The
local sponsors are Venice
Area Beautification Inc.
(VABI) and Venice Main
Street.
Bike Day events will
include VWP and biking
information, favors, bike fit-
ting and maintenance tips


from Reale Bicycles Inc., dis-
tribution of safety booklets,
an opportunity to discuss the
VWP and .future biking
opportunities with Sarasota
County officials and the VWP
Trailblazer Bike Patrol, and
complimentary Gatorade;
granola bars, fruit and water.
As for me, instead of a bal-
ancing act on a pair of rub-
ber wheels, I'll be balancing
'my love for The Wife against
bidding farewell to comic
books and sports memora-
bilia.

When baseball was the game


DAVE BARRY
HUMOR COLUMNIST

(This classic Dave Barry col-
umn was originally published
March 31, 1996.)

As we enter yet another
baseball season, what's left of
my mind drifts back to the fall
of 1960, when I was a student
at Harold C. Crittenden
Junior High ("Where the
Leaders of Tomorrow Are
Developing the Acne of
Today").
The big baseball story that
year was the World Series
between the New York
Yankees and the Pittsburgh
Pirates. Today, for sound TV
viewership reasons, all World
Series games are played after
most people, including many
of the players, have gone to
bed. But in 1960, the games
had to be played in the day-
time, because the electric
'light had not been invented
yet. Also, back then the play-
ers and owners had not yet
discovered the marketing
benefits of sporadically can-
celing entire seasons.
The result was that in
those days young people
were actually interested in
baseball, unlike today's young
people, who are much more
interested in basketball, foot-
ball, soccer and downloading
dirty pictures from the


SCOOL from Page lB
play, "String of Pearls."
Coming up next in the the
Cook is "Rounding Third," by
Richard Dresser. For tickets or
more information, visit

Thirty million blooms are

over Epcot at the Walt Disney
World Resort where the 13th
annual Epcot International
Flower & Garden Festival
continues through June 11. If
you don't go for any other rea-
son, head to WDW to see the
new Donald and Daisy topi-
aries cruise through a floral
tunnel of love while topiaries

Charming "waltz" amid blos-
soms and greenery. The
Disney "sweetheart" topiaries
are based on decades of hap-
pily-ever-after classic stories
and in keeping with the new
U.S. Postal Department
stamps honoring famous
Disney couples such as


Internet. But in my youth,
baseball ruled. Almost all of
us boys played in Little
League, a character-building
experience that helped me
develop a personal relation-
ship with God.
"God," I would say, when I
was standing in deep right
field the coach put me in
right field only because it was
against the rules to put me in
Sweden, where I would have
done less damage to the team
- "please, please, please
don't let the ball come to me."
But, of course, God enjoys
a good prank as much as the
next infallible deity, which is
why, when He heard me
pleading with Him, He always
took time out from His busy
schedule to make sure the
next batter hit a towering
blast that would, upon re-
entering the Earth's atmos-
phere, come down directly
where I would have been
standing, if I had stood still,
which I never did. I lunged
around cluelessly in frantic,
random circles, so that the
ball always landed a mini-
mum of 40 feet from where I
wound up standing, desper-
ately thrusting out my glove,
which was a Herb Score
model that, on my coach's,
recommendation, I had treat-
ed with neat's-foot oil so it
would be supple.
Looking back, I feel bad
that innocent neats had to
sacrifice their feet for the sake
of my glove. I would have
been just as effective, as a
fielder, if I'd been wearing a
bowling shoe on my hand, or
a small aquarium.
But even though I stunk at
it, I was into baseball. My
friends and I collected base-
ball cards, the kind that came

and the Tramp, but NOT

haps you will understand why

in a little pack with a dusty,
pale-pink rectangle of
linoleum-textured World War
II surplus bubble gum that
was far less edible than the
cards themselves. Like every
other male my age who col-
lected baseball cards as a boy,
I now firmly believe that at
one time I had the original
rookie cards of Mickey
Mantle, Jackie Robinson, Ty
Cobb, Babe Ruth, Jim Thorpe,
Daniel Boone, Goliath, etc.,
and that I'd be able to sell my
collection for $163 million
today except my mom threw
it out.
My point is that we cared
deeply about baseball back
then, which meant that we
were passionate about the
1960 Pirates-Yankees World
Series matchup. My class was
evenly divided between those
who were Pirate fans and
those who were complete
morons. (I never have cared
for the Yankees, and for a very
sound reason: The Yankees
are evil.)
We followed every pitch of
every game. It wasn't easy,
because the weekday games
started when we were still in
school, which for some idiot
reason was not called off for
the World Series. This meant
that certain students I am
not naming names, because

during the Cold War is that

earphones, to announcers
explaining how a.bad hop

nailed Tony Kubek in the
throat.
That series went seven
games, and I vividly remem-
ber how it ended. School was
out for the day, and I was
heading home, pushing my
bike up a steep hill, listening
to my cheapo little radio, my
eyes staring vacantly ahead,
my mind locked on the game.
A delivery truck came,by, and
the driver stopped and asked
if he could listen. Actually, he
more or less told me he was
going to listen; I said OK.
The truck driver turned
out to be a rabid Yankee fan.
The game was very close, and
we stood on opposite sides of
my bike for the final two
innings, rooting for opposite
teams, he chain-smoking
Lucky Strike cigarettes, both
of us hanging on every word
coming out of my tinny little
speaker.
And, of course, if you were
around back then and did not
live in Russia, you know what
happened: God, in a sincere
effort to make up for all those
fly balls he directed toward
me in Little League, had Bill
Mazeroski Bill Mazeroski!
- hit a home run to win it for
the Pirates.
I was insane with joy. The
truck driver was devastated.
But I will never forget what he
said to me. He looked me
square in the eye, one base-
ball fan to another, after a
tough but fair fight-and he
said a seriously bad word.
Several, in fact. Then he got in
his truck and drove away.

than $1.57 million to improve
quality of life in communities


the foundation serves. The
majority of the grant funds
awarded will support capital
projects resulting in new
facilities to serve a range of
critical human service needs,
including grants of $375,000
each to the city of North Port


for a new social services
building and to South County
Family YMCA for its new
Venice facility. The founda-

$240,000 to support pro-
grams at several local non-

munity," said foundation
President/CEO Teri A. Han-

will ensure the city and local
agencies can consistently
deliver a range of necessary
social services to North Port
citizens, particularly low-
income residents.
South County Family
YMCA will receive a founda-
tion grant of $375,000 in sup-
port of phase two of its
Building a Strong Future cap-
ital campaign.
As South County Family
YMCA moves forward with
construction of its new,
55,000-square-foot facility in
Venice, this phase of the cam-
paign seeks funding for pool
renovation, renovations to
the existing building to ac-
commodate on-site partner-
ships with other nonprofits
and other improvements.
The board approved a
$175,000 grant to Loveland
Center to assist with con-
struction of a new Student
Alumni Center for Loveland's
older adult students with
developmental disabilities.
The new alumni center
will enable Loveland to pro-


vide these older students with
memory and motor skill stim-
ulation, nutritional guidance,
social interaction and other
services in a dedicated space.
The building will also offer
significant room to expand
services to more seniors in
the future, a need anticipated
as Loveland's student popula-
tion ages.
Boys and Girls Clubs' first-
ever club in Venice is closer to
becoming a reality as Boys
and Girls Clubs of Sarasota
County was awarded a
matching grant of up to
$175,000 toward construction
of a 32,000-square-foot facili-
ty. While Boys and Girls Clubs
continues to develop re-
sources for the new Venice
building, the foundation's
grant funding will be provid-
ed as a match, up to $175,000,
of new funds raised locally for
the project.
Redeemer Lutheran
Church and Child Care Cen-
ter was awarded a $40,000
foundation grant for a new
outdoor activity center for its


child-care programs. The new
playground will be designed
with safe, age-appropriate
equipment offering students
opportunities for exercise,
development and social in-
teraction.
Funding for programs
In addition to these capital
projects, the foundation
board approved grants to
support programs at five local
nonprofit organizations. Ven-
ice Little Theatre (VLT) will
receive a $104,586 foundation
grant over four years to
expand and improve its vol-
unteer program.
VLT uses more than 700
volunteers over the course of
a year, and the grant funds
will enable it to add a full-
time volunteer coordinator
responsible for enhancing
recruitment, training, place-
ment and other key aspects of
VLT's volunteer program.
Sarasota County Openly
Plans for Excellence (SCOPE)
was awarded a $50,000
Foundation grant to support


its primary activities in the
area of community planning
and engagement. SCOPE
activities include ongoing
community conversations
and studies on race and
healthy aging, implementa-
tion of past studies, data pro-
jects and other community
efforts aimed at promoting
accountability and personal
commitment through en-
gagement opportunities for
residents.
Big Brothers/Big Sisters of
the Sun Coast will receive a
$35,000 grant to expand its
Decisions to Win mentoring
program for high school stu-
dents in southern Sarasota
County.
This curriculum-based,
one-on-bne mentoring pro-
gram teaches good decision-
making skills and personal
responsibility to students at
risk for not graduating. Big
Brothers/Big Sisters plans to
expand the' program to reach
an additional 75 students at
Venice High School, the
YMCA Triad South program


and North Port High School.
The Englewood Inter-
agency Council (EIC) was
awarded a $40,000 grant for
planning and preliminary de-
sign of a new "one stop"
building for health and hu-
man services in Englewood.
The EIC aims to bring
together services that now
exist separately or aren't yet
provided in the community.
Coordination and communi-
cation among service pro-
viders in the new one-stop
location would alleviate the
confusion that can arise for
residents seeking services in a
community straddling the
Charlotte and Sarasota coun-
tyline.
The Lemon Bay League
was awarded a $10,000 foun-
dation matching grant for
preservation of scientific
research conducted in Lem-
on Bay by the Bass Lab in the
1930s and '40s.
SThis historic data contains
valuable information- on the
water quality of Lemon Bay
prior to drainage modifica-


tion projects and construc-
tion of the IntracoastalWater-
way.

Foundation of Venice builds
strong communities through
leadership, partnership, and
endowed philanthropy. A
public charity committed to
improving the quality of life
in the communities it serves,
it is the largest community
foundation in Florida with
assets more than $225 mil-
lion.

the sale of Venice Hospital
and has awarded $59 million
in grants in the areas of arts
and culture, health and hu-
man services, education, civic

Vladimir, Russia Sister City insight


BY JOHN HALBERT
SSPECIALTO THE GONDOLIER SUN

:.' The special relationship
Between Sarasota and its sis-
ter city of Vladimir, Russia,
Swas the theme of a program at
Sthe Sarasota Yacht Club
Wednesday, April 19, with
Reports by City Commissioner
Lou Ann Palmer; Dr. Lori
Pennington-Grey, director of
the Center for Tourism Re-
Ssearch and Development at
, the University of Florida; Dr.
Carolyn. Gregov, Sarasota
County extension director;
'Principal Kim Elder, Island
Village Montessori School,
and Laura Flesch, Sarasota
Sister Cities director for
Vladimir relations.
The group informed more
than 70 Sarasota Sister Cities
members and guests at the
luncheon of ongoing initia-
tives in increasing communi-
ty involvement in education,
Tourism and government,
while viewing multimedia
presentations of the delega-
tion visit to Vladimir last fall.
Particularly well received
were the heartfelt remarks by
Yelena Bychkovskikh of
Vladimir, who, as result of the
delegation visit, is now a stu-
dent for a master's degree in
tourism at the University of
Florida.
Bychkovskikh had been
Sthe point person for Vlad-
imir's twinned relationships
With 16 partner cities around
the world, including Sarasota,
representing Vladimir Mayor
Alexander Rybakov and her
Former boss, Yuri Victorich
I; Federo\, who is the head of
the Department of Inter-
national Affairs and Tourism
in Vladimir.
Bychkovskikh told the
group, "I have worked with
many nationalities and coun-
tries, and I greatly love and
Respect each and every one of
them." She said her favorite is
Sarasota because of the peo-
Spie.
"Thanks to our Sister Cities
Program, we have the oppor-
tunity.to get to know each
other and tear down negative
stereotypes by building
bridges to each other. I know
from my own experience,
how important it is to develop
people-to-people citizen di-
plomacy," Bychkovskikh said.
Vladimir citizens are great-
ly interested in having more
collaborative projects with
Sarasota," she said.
For example, Mayor Ryba-
kov is a soccer fan, actually
more than a fan as he is a soc-
cer player himself. He would
love for an American high
school soccer team to visit
Vladimir for City Days and
play a local Vladimir team.
There are a lot of projects on

Sent crying to Mom and said

Sit, even though I was there
and witnessed everything,
Is this jealousy, or some-
thing else? STUNNED IN
BILOXI, MISS.
DEAR STUNNED: It's jeal-
ousy and that kind of sib-
ling rivalry goes all the way
back to Cain and Abel. I hope
you told your mother what
really occurred, because your
mother's work is cut out for
her. Not only does she have
her little one to tend to, she is
going to have to give Rose
more attention. It will allevi-
ate some of her jealousy and
also ensure that Rose cannot
act out and lie without
punishment.
I recommend that your
mother involve Rose in a spe-
cial activity something that
is just for her so she can feel
"special" again. She's an angry
little girl, but she cannot be
allowed to continue abusing
Sher little sister.


our list, and we can make
them happen.
She shared several inter-
esting observations about
benefits of the partnering
with other cities, including
Sarasota. For example, she
said the Chinese never come
in small groups usually
with a delegation of 15 peo-
ple. They are very organized
and seekto gain experience in
cultural areas in which
Vladimir excels. A result for
their last visit was establish-
ing an arrangement where 20
Chinese teachers will be
brought to Vladimir to learn
how English is taught in
schools.
Delegations from Italy are
very charming, friendly and
never in a hurry, but they tra-
ditionally lose someone who
becomes engrossed in enjoy-
ing learning about Russian
family life and gaining new
friends.

Delegations from Canter-
bury, England, are very prop-
er. One of the last visits was
timed while a Sarasota dele-
gation led by former Mayor
Richard Martin was in
Vladimir.
It was during the visit that
Mayor Martin, the Lord
Mayor of Canterbury and
Vladimir Mayor Rybakov had
the opportunity to view
Vladimir from the air aboard
a Russian military helicopter.
The camaraderie in the eve-
ning ended with the mayors
singing karaoke.
"No matter how I love
them all (Vladimir's partner
cities), my favorites will al-
ways be Americans. You
know, sometimes you simply
cannot help loving something
or somebody, and 'there is
actually no explanation," she

Russians. You are so real, and
like to get right down to busi-
ness."
Bychkovskikh noted, "I
remember, at the meetings of
the Youth Parliament, Sara-
sota Sister Cities coordinator
for Vladimir Laura Flesch was
talking about the Sailor Circus
and how City Commissioner
Lou Ann Palmer used'to be in
the circus when she was a
teenager." She said the Rus-
sians were amazed when
Commissioner Palmer said,
"Let me show you," as she
quickly did a headstand on
the table. "At first there was
surprise, but then everyone
started talking and laughing
and the ice was broken."
"Isn't it incredible? How
can you not love these peo-
ple?" she said. The people of
Vladimir are simply fascinat-
ed with Americans, just like
you are fascinated with
Russians.

City thanks

Dean Calamaras
Mayor Dean Calamaras
issued many proclamations
during his time in office. Last
week he should have declared
Tuesday Dean Calamaras Day
in Venice. From the time he
walked into council chambers
to the final goodbye at the
Venice Community Center, it
was his special day.
City council chambers
Vice Mayor Fred Hammett
presented Dean with a plaque
before the council meeting.
Fred explained its design
included pillars reminding
Dean of the special "Pillar of
the Community" award he ini-
tiated. Fred read a letter from
Katherine Harris. John Ryan
gave the mayor a Venice
poster from the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce. John
Osmulski and members of the
Planning Commission gave
Dean a plaque.
"This city is better because
of you," Jeff Boone told Dean
when he took his 5 minutes at
the council meeting to talk
about Dean's accomplish-
ments.
"You've been here since
John Nolan and now when I
come you leave," councilman
BillWillson joked.
There were many tears as
people watched Dean tap the
gavel for the last time. "I didn't
think this would be this hard,"
Edward Hoefert said.
TheVCC
Master of ceremonies Cliff
Roles found clever ways to
introduce Marty Black, Merle
Graser, Nancy Detert, Maggie
Turner Dahl, Bob Vedder,
Kathy Dailey, Bob Anderson,
Benny Weaver, Lori Steltzer
and John Simmonds who
were there to roast Dean
Calamaras.
"People come to Florida to
retire, why are you going to
Georgia?" he said. "Georgia is
the gateway to Florida."
Former Assistant City
Manager Dailey gave Dean the
top 10 reasons retirement in
Georgia will be different than
Venice. Among them were no
Venice Taxpayers League,
which got a big laugh even
from Herb Levine.
Lori Steltzer read a poem
she wrote concluding with
"We're better off for knowing
this kind man."
When Dean spoke he told
the group, "I got to marry my
high school sweetheart. That
was the highlight of my life."
"It's with great sadness we
leave all of our friends," he
concluded.
When Dean tried to end
with saying goodbye he could-
n't. The emotion of the day
caught up with him. The sev-
eral hundred people at the
Venice Community Center
stood and gave this mayor and
friend a warm standing ova-
tion.
Three cheers to Pam John-
son, Lori Steltzer and every-
one else who helped make the
reception so meaningful.
One of our best
The special person of this
week is Dean Calamaras. This
nice man represents every-
thing good about Venice. One
of his successes as mayor was
creating a "Pillar of the
Community" award that rec-
ognized outstanding citizens.
Dean Calamaras will be
remembered as one of our
great mayors of Venice and a
true pillar of this community.
Dean Calamaras is our former
mayor who worked to make
this city great.


Fred Hammett presents Mayor Dean Calamaras with a special
recognition plaque at the Venice City Council meeting.
Calamaras thanked his wife Barbara for standing by him in the
more than 20 years he served the city.


SuL I-IT H ,TO' IHA FIAI V LE.lCCl
After the final gavel, Mayor Dean Calamaras and Bill Willson, Jeff Snyder, Fred Hammett, Vicki,
Taylor, John Moore, John Simmonds, Marty Black, Lori Steltzer, Bob Anderson and Rick Tacy
take time to share some final memories of their time serving the city together.


Former Venice Mayor Merle Graser and his wife Pat celebrate
Mayor Dean Calamaras.


Benny Weaver gives Dean Calamaras a light roasting at the
reception.


Linda Depew and Pam Johnson present Mayor Dean
Calamaras with a beautiful framed Clyde Butcher photo, a gift
from all the employees at Venice City Hall.


Nancy Detert and Bob Anderson roasted and had nice things to say about the mayor. As presi-
dent of the Sertoma Club of Venice, Anderson presented Dean Calamaras with its Service to
Mankind Award.


Longtime friends Terry Petretti, Arlene and Roger Dooley
joined the crowd at theVenice Community Center honoring
Mayor Dean Calamaras.

his wife Barbara good luck as they move to Georgia.

Georgia will be different from Venice. Longtime friend C.J. Fishman rushed to the Venice
Community Center from the airport to help celebrate the mayor's retirement.
