Gun scare on final day of school


What began as a
search for a suspected
gunman turned out to-
be thecase of the
disappearing delivery
man.

STAFF WRITER

Venice High and Venice
Elementary schools were in
lockdown Tuesday morning
after reports of a.suspected
gunman on the high
school's campus.-
Police converged on the
high school! minutes after a
student reported seeing
what appeared to be a con-
cealed gun carried by a
Hispanic male.
Police' with drawn shot-
guns cordoned off the areas
in front of and behind the
schools, searching passing
cars on Bahama Road that
got caught up as the perime-
ter was secured.
The schools were on lock-
down for 40 minutes before
the search was called off.
The call came in at 9:49
a.m., according to Sgt.
Thomas McNulry, who was
on die scene.
"A high school student
said he observed a Hispanic
male in his 40s walking on
ii campus with whatcould
have been a small caliber
handgun in his pocket,"
McNulty said.
"If could have been (a
gun) ... might havebeen.We
don't really know," McNulty
said. ,
Police didn't find the sus-
pect, he said.
Later on, school officials
determined it was a case of

After the county rejected his request for a longer
dock, John Konecnik said he'll entertain
proposals to buy the entire property for condos.


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

A controversial floating
pier at Fisherman's Wharf is
back where it has been for
two years and is -now going to
be linked to a new condo-
minium development.
A lengthy pubic hearing
Tuesday ended with the
Sarasota County commis-
sioners rejecting a plan to
build a 767.45 foot pier atthe
wharf, which is now the home
to ithe Marker 4 restaurant.
John Konecnik, the owner
of the property, said after the
decision was made that he
will now talk to developers
who have been interested in
his 7-acre parcel to build con-
dominiums and that would
mean the restaurant would
have to close.
"If you don't have the
whole dock, you can't justify
keeping the restaurant open,"
Konecnik said. "'That's what
they took away."
More than 50 people.
offered their opinions during
a more-than-three-hour pub-
lic debate. Nlany spoke for the
pier and keeping the restau-
rant in place: others opposed
it because it would be a navi-
gational obstruction or ruin
their view..
Konecnik even chartered a
bus to bring people to the
meeting.


The board did agree to give
the pier the length agreed
upon in 2004 415 feet -
and said they could not take
into account the fate of
Marker 4 because that is a city
of Venice matter. They needed
to do that because the con-
struction permit from the
2004. approval had expired.
Commissioner David Mills
was the lone supporter of the
full pier, saying a lot has
changed since the original
application was brought for-
ward in 2002.
The county has been
aggressively trying to find
waterfront access, and he
viewed the pier extension as
granting public access.
Brenda Patten, the attor-
ney for Konecnik, said the
pier extension would have 17
boat slips that would be for
transient boaters to have a
place to dock for the restau-
rant.
. She said the public access
was vital to keeping Marker 4
open and even said that the
extra slips would generate
more than $1.3 million in rev-
enue.

"Oh boy."
Those were the first words
uttered by Fred Hammett
after being named Venice's
new mayor Tuesday.
Previously the council-
elect vice mayor, Hammett
was named the five-month
replacement mayor until an
election can
be held for the
remaining
year on Dean
Calamaras'
term. Cala-
maras retired
with 17
months left
on his term
after selling
his home and,
business sooner than expect-
ed.
The 4-0 Venice City
Council vote removed the
"interim" label that had been
in front of Hammett's title the
past two weeks. Hammett did
not vote, and council mem-
ber John Moore was absent
from the meeting.
After a month or two as


mayor, Hammett will decide
if he will run for die'one-year
mayoral term this fall. He will
resume;his regular city coun-
cil term if he does riot run for
mayor.
"I guess, it will ~be me, at
least until November," Ham-
mett joked at the meetingg,
Hammett is the only cur-
rent council r ember to
admit he "might"; run for
Mayor this
fall. Council

him if he ran
for mayor.
Moore is out
of town on
Taylor vacation and


could not be reached.
I Taylor and Simmonds are
the only members whose
terms expire this year. Both
plan on running for re-elec-
tion.
"I ain't wavering. I want to
make that perfectly clear. I
am going to run for election,
that's for sure," said Sim-
monds, referring to a
Gondolier
Sun story that
said he had
wavered.
City council
still must
name its new
vice mayor
and an inter-
im city coun-
Tacy cil member,
both serving
until November. These votes
will be held at the next regular
meeting, June 13. ,
Only four people Mike
Gelormino, Jim Leis, Diana'
Mier and Jim Woods have
applied to be the interim
council member.
Other news
Also at Tuesday's council
meeting:
DEP compliance Ven-
ice has nearly closed another
door on its history of violating
environmental laws. An engi-
neer working for the Florida


Department of Environ-
mental Protection said the
city's wastewater operations
plant is "in complete compli-
ance of the state DEP consent
order."
Venice agreed to the civil
settlement with the state in
July 2004 and pleaded guilty
to felony federal charges in
April 2005 that were accepted
by a judge last December. All
charges stem from illegal
dumping of treated sewage
water and then attempting to
cover it up.
In the state DEP settle-
ment, the city had to spend
up to $195,000 so a state engi-
neer could review reclaimed
water storage operations, and
up to $120,000 as an in-kind
project to meet 'financial
penalties.
The state engineer, Laura
Andrews, revealed that in
2000 the city was exceeding
its capacity by 1.3 million gal-
lons of treated water daily.
"The staff at that time was
very challenged to find a
place for 1.3 million gallons of
water every day," Andrews
explained to city council.
Her report shows that facil-
ity improvements and agree-
ments with Sarasota County
now give Venice a buffer of 1.9
million gallons per day.
Based on her findings, the


state finally issued operating
permits last month for the
city's sewage plant that had
been on hold for 18 months.
Rental properties -
Residents in the Golden
Beach Homeowners Asso-
ciation spoke to council
members about property
owners renting out their
homes "like they're hotels."
They are pushing city
council to create new laws to
prohibit renting a house for
less than 30 days and to pro-
hibit having more than four
renters during any one calen-
dar year.
City staff is reviewing the
issue, but warned that a new
law or, zoning restriction
could impair property owner
rights.
Regular rental housing
could be hurt in an attempt to
prevent single-family homes
from being treated like hotels,
as those with Golden Beach
Homeowners Association al-
lege.
"The idea of having no
rentals at all is better than
what we got right now," said
Roger Krinke, of Golden
Beach, to city council.

We've sure read a lot about
hurricanes lately. It's enough
to frighten anyone.
The problem with all this
"awareness" is that some
folks might lose sight of how
downright pleasant it is to
live here most days. Fearing
tomorrow can prevent ap-
preciating today.
We can wallow in fears if
we want to: looming bird flu

Gas prices may help local summer tourism


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER
As the.,schoQl year ends
and gas prices continue to
hover; around $3 per gallon,
people planning their sum-
mer vacations may opt to go
on shorter trips this year.
And that could be good for
the local tourist economy.
The summer's regional
advertising campaign will be
targeting the main markets
in Florida to remind people
that the area has a lot to
offer.
"We hear about gas prices
all of the time," said Becky
Bovell, the Charlotte County
tourism director. "It does not
affect people's decision to
drive, because the. cost in-
crease is minimal overall."
Sarasota County Conven-
tion & Visitor's Bureau Exe-
cutive Director Virginia Haley
said it is fairly common for
people living in Tampa Bay,
Orlando or West Palm Beach
to come to Sarasota for a
vacation.
"They even come to go to
the beach because it isn't
their beach," Haley said.
Evelyn Fine, of Mid-Florida
Marketing & Research Inc.,
said this is the first time in
her 30 years in the travel
industry that there is a real
concern about the summer
season.
"People are having a heart
attack when they realize how
much they are spending on
a tank of gas sometimes
more than they pay for gro-
ceries," Fine said. ,
But even with higher gas
prices, Fine said, people will
take their annual vacations.
No one wants to stay


home, but the trips may be
a shorter distance.
"Floridians have the least
concern about hurricanes,
red tide and gas prices, since
everything most people
could want from a vacation
is so close," she said.
She advised Haley that
concentrating advertising on
nearby destinations is ideal.
"Keep it near in. Keep it
close," Fine said.
Two-tank maximum
Lower prices and fewer
people at some locations
make summer trips to winter
hot spots ideal vacation
opportunities, Fine said.
June Timmons agrees. She
has lived in the area year-
round for 12 years after living
in New Jersey for 40 years.
She said she will be vaca-
tioning very close to home
this year, likely going to
Sarasota, Tampa or Boca
Grande.
"It is as much a change of
scenery for us," Timmons
said. "I had always wondered
where people who live in
Florida vacationed, and I
found that they vacation
here."
Bovell said the concentra-
tion of advertising will reach
into Georgia and the Caro-
linas.
"Two tanks seems to. be

Gas prices have dropped a bit after peaking around $3 per gallon, but likely haven't dropped far enough to make long summer
road trips more attractive.


the maximum most people
will drive," she said.
An informal survey of local
businesses in recent weeks
has found that the higher
gas prices have done little to


discourage visitors so far.
"We have had a very good
season and it just keeps
going," Bovell said.
For George Hall of Port
Charlotte, the high gas prices


will not stop his annual RV
trip across the state.
"We stay at as many of
the -state parks as we can,"
Hall said. "Sure, it is expen-
sive, but no more expensive


than anything else. Heck, it's
cheaper than flying some-
where cold."

4A VENICE GONDOLA N


Bulls and Bears at Laurel Nokomis


BY COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER

Once again, students of
eighth-grade math teacher
Jim Killorin at Laurel Nokomis
have tried their hands at the
stock market.
Of course, they don't really
gamble on stocks they use
pretend money but they
do get to learnthe process.
Merrill Lynch has support-
ed the project since it began
four years ago, giving the
students real monetary in-
centives to learn how the
stock market works.
This year, Shannon Sims
was the big winner, grossing
a total of $27,225 from her
efforts. Unfortunately, Sims
was unavailable to comment
on how she did it, but sec-
ond-place winner Amberly
Moore shared how she was
able to make $23,494 from
investing an initial $100,000.
"Apple Computers was my
big investment," Moore con-
fessed.
Third-place winner Timmy
Garofalo cashed in with a little
help from Nutrisystem.
"I just figured the timing
would be right with summer
coming," said Garofalo said,
who was hoping everyone
would want to look good for
the summer months.
Garofalo worried because

Nutrisystem didn't do well
until the last minute.
How it all began
Bulls and Bears is the
brainchild of Killorin, a form-
er Merrill Lynch broker. While
most students say they par-
ticipate in the event merely
for a grade or the chance to
win $150 from Merrill Lynch,
Killorin sees behind those
statements.
"There's nothing like it
when a kid asks me at the start
of the year, 'When are we
going to do Bulls and Bears,
Mr. Killorin?' he said.
Student interest shows Kil-
lorin that the program makes
a difference to his students.
He has students that want to
repeat the program, as he
originally taught sixth grade.
"Bulls and Bears not only
shows students how the stock
market works, but it also uses
math and language arts
skills," Killorin said.
The students are given
$100,000 and eight weeks to
invest in certain stocks. They
have to research the stocks
they choose if they want to
make money and win the
contest. They also have to
generate a portfolio that
shows why they chose specif-
ic stocks and what is good
about them.
Students also learn how to

research their chosen com-
panies. Most of them used
some sort of technology in
order to do this. Most stu-
dents used the ticker on
CNN, but another alternative
was the Internet.
Merrill Lynch participates
in the event every year be-
cause it believes in helping
the community. Every year, it
donates money to the pro-
gram this year and last it
was $500 in the hope that
it will educate young people
on how to invest in the stock
market.
Joe Adamchak, vice presi-
dent and resident director for
Merrill Lynch, believes it is a
creative way for Merrill Lynch
to invest in the community.
But it might be the last
year that Laurel Nokomis has
the Bulls and Bears competi-
tion. As a part of the recent
budget realignment, Killorin
is one of the teachers who is
being "surplused" next year.
Killorin doesn't know
where he is going yet, and he
also doesn't know what will
happen to the program next
year. He hopes he'll be teach-
ing high school math next
year, and introducing Bulls
and Bears to a different
group of students.

Sixth-, seventh-graders make strong FCAT showing


County results mirror
sharp state increases in
grades six and seven in
both reading and math;
grade four reading falls
at county and state
level, while grade nine
reading scores are
encouraging.

BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

The' state of Florida re-
leased'the mother of all FCAT
results pn Tuesday scores
for grades four-10 scores on
reading, math, and writing
tests bosed on Sunshine State
Standards.
The results were generally
positive, showing improve-
ment at nearly every grade
level in nearly every subject,
with the exception of grade-
four reading.
Students in Sarasota
County continued to score
above average when com-
pared to the state at all grade
levels in all subjects.
Grade-four reading FCATs
dropped both statewide and
in Sarasota County. The per-
cent of students performing
at or above grade level
dropped 5 points statewide,
and 8 percentage points in
Sarasota County.
"We're studying grade-four
scores at the county and state
level to see what might have
happened," said Lori White,
associate superintendent of
Sarasota County School Dis-
trict.
Overall, Sarasota County
students performed well on
2006 FCATs, she said.
"We're pleased. There are

Summary: Elementary school students do well on FCAT Math. By
middle school fewer students are on grade level, but they regain
some of the loss by high school. Math scores in 2006 showed consis-
tent gains in every grade level but one (grade five); grades six and
seven showed significant improvement.

COUNTY READING SCORES SHOW POCKETS OF

Summary: Elementary school students do well on FCAT Reading, but
by middle school fewer students are reading on grade level, and by
high school proficiency levels drop off dramatically. Reading scores
in 2006 improved dramatically in grades six and seven, with grade
nine showing encouraging signs of improvement.

marked areas of improve- in both reading and math. It
ment in middle schools, not- probably has a connection
ably in grades six and seven, with some of the intensive


reading and Reading 180 pro-
grams," White said.
She also attributed the
positive results in part to NeXt
Generation Learning teacher-
training programs that were
implemented last year.
The percentage of sixth-
graders reading at or above
grade level rose 13 points
from 61 percent last year to 74
percent. Seventh-graders im-
proved by 11 percentage
points.
Sarasota County sixth-
graders are 10 percentage
points above the state aver-
age (64 percent) in reading.
Sarasota County seventh-
graders are 6 percentage
points above the state aver-
age (61 percent) in reading.
The percentage of sixth-
graders who performed at or
above grade level in mathe-
matics rose 12 percentage
points, from 49 to 61 percent,
exceeding the state of 53 per-
cent.
Seventh-graders improved
also. The number who per-
formed at grade level in math
rose 5 percentage points,
from 57 percent to 62 percent.
Statewide the average is 55
percent.
Ninth-graders improve
Ninth-grade reading
scores rose also, giving hope
to dismal high school reading
scores that have plagued the
state.
For the first time, half of
Sarasota County's ninth-
graders are reading at or
above grade level. Last year
only 44 percent read at grade
level. This year 50 percent
read at grade level, an in-
crease of 6 percentage points.
White called the increase
in reading scores "encourag-
ing."


"Overall we looked at how
we did in relative to our cur-
rent position. If you look at
each of these scores being a-
data point, Sarasota County
schools stayed the same or
improved in 12 out of 16
points," White said.
"It continues to show we
are one of the top-performing
counties in the state. It says a
lot about the hard work of our
teachers and the training they
are getting," she said.
In nearly all other grade
levels, reading and maths
scores improved, both in
Sarasota County and state-
wide. Grade-three scores,
which were released earlier,
showed improvement in
reading to the tune of 9,per-
centage points, with math
improving 2 points.
Writing
FCATWriting scores rose at
the elementary and middle
school level in Sarasota
County but dipped slightly at
the high school level.
Fourth-grade FCATs im-
proved 1 percentage point,


from 81 percent to 82 (state-
wide average is 76 percent),
while eighth-graders improv-
ed their lot 8 percentage
points, from 76 percent writ-
ing at or above grade level last
year to 84 percent this year
(state average is 83 percent).
The number of 10th-
graders writing at grade level
declined from 79 percent to
77 percent. It was the only
subject in which the state per-
centage of students perform-
ing at proficiency levels was
higher (78 percent) than the
county's.
State stats
FCAT scores show Florida's
students continue to make
learning gains in both reading
and math, said Education
Commissioner John L. Winn.
This year's scores show the
largest year-to-year increases
in reading since 2001. Overall,
57 percent of students in
grades three through 10 are
reading at or above grade
level (Level 3 and above)

DOCK from Page 1A
ed, it leaves the proposal in
flux.
Strong emotions filled the
overflowing commission
chambers as boaters, charter
fisherman and others argued
to have the pier accepted at
its proposed length.
There were five boxes of
petitions in support of the
idea, but the commissioners
had heard this pier proposal
three times since 2002.
Mills even asked people in
favor of the petition to stop


repeating themselves and just
say they were for it.
Later, as an organized oppo-
sition was mounted, there was
an argument to allow everyone
to have their full three minutes
to comment.
Steve Thacker, a dive shop
owner who leases space at the
wharf, said the shorter dock
would ruin his business and
ruin what makes Venice spe-
cial.
David Monda, a charter
boat captain, questioned how
anyone could be opposed to
the pier.


"It looks like you have a
grudge against this man,"
Monday said.
He asked the commission-
ers to answer the question
about the number of boaters
in the county, but after he was
rebuffed, he said there are
30,000 boaters with five pub-
lic facilities.
Georgia Hoefner, who
works at Marker 4, said her
boss "is being hog-tied from
making money from this.
Keep the public access."
Most of the people against
the pier were from the Harbor


Lights Mobile Home Park.
What Harriett Albert said was
echoed by many: "There is
false perception on what the
good will be. We already know
what the bad will be."
Others cited the hurricane
danger of a floating dock,
while still others said it would
hurt their property values.
Board members each
received dozens e-mails and
phone calls from people in
favor and opposed to the pier.
No comment
A condominium complex


now seems likely, including
demolition of the Marker 4
restaurant. All of those issues
will need to be handled by the
Venice City Council, however.
Commissioner Paul
Mercier sought input from
city officials by floating an
unsupported motion to con-
tinue the public hearing until
they could offer an opinion.
No city officials has ever
made a public comment on
the issue.
In the end, the commis-
sioners agreed the extra
length for only 17 limited-


access boat slips was not
worth what would be lost.
Thaxton said he could
identify with the people who
spoke but didn't agree that
anything new had happened
to make the pier more
acceptable.
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson said she has had a lot
of difficulty with the decision,
but the extreme length of the
pier about 50 feet shorter
than the Venice Pier was
too much.

compared to 47 percent in
2001. This represents 223,000
more students.
In mathematics, 61 percent
of Florida students are demon-
strating mathematics skills at
or above grade level (Level 3
and above) compared to 50
percent in 2001. This repre-
sents 234,000 more students.


Close the gap
Florida has made great
strides in closing the achieve-
ment gap, Winn said. African-
American and Hispanic stu-
dents in grades three through
10 again made progress this
year, continuing gains in both
reading and mathematics.
S* 39 percent of African-


American students are read-
ing at or above grade level
(Level 3 and above), up from
26 percent.
50 percent of Hispanic stu-
dents are reading at or above
grade level (Level 3 and above),
up from 35 percent.
41 percent of African-
American students are dem-


onstrating mathematics, skills
at or above grade level (Level 3
and above), up from 26 per-
cent.
56 percent of Hispanic stu-
dents are demonstrating math-
ematics skills at or above grade
level (Level 3 and above), up
from 41 percent.
"Florida has witnessed what


education reforms can do to
improve student learning as
evidenced by this recent suc-
cess," said Winn. "The A+ Plan
for Education was only the
beginning. Now Gov. Bush's
A++ Plan for Education will
bring relevance and rigor to
our middle and high schools so
we may witness a high level of


success for these students as
well."

time the lockdown took
place."
"The student did the right
thing by calling in the Code
Red. It's good to have this kind
of impromptu practice," he
said.
Leon said the student was
unable to identify the name
of the delivery service.
As of press time the district
was unable to ascertain the
name of the delivery person
or the delivery company,
although they believe he was
delivering supplies to the
school.
"We don't know where that
guy is and don't have the
manpower to try to find him,"
Leon said.
He said school officials will
check with records and try to
locate the person.
"If he was carrying a
weapon, that's against the
law," Leon said.
All visitors to schools,
including construction work-
ers and delivery personnel,


are supposedly required to
check into the main office at
each school before conduct-
ing their business on school
grounds.
Venice High officials were
unavailable to confirm
whether the delivery person
signed in.
Graduation uninterrupted
About a dozen Venice
Police Department vehicles,
including unmarked police
cars, and sheriff's officers
were on the scene in SWAT-
Team-like fashion, although
the Sarasota County-SWAT
unit and helicopter surveil-
lance unit were not called
upon.
Officers with weapons
drawn took up positions
blocking each intersection
along Bahama Street and
Miami Avenue, while others
searched both campuses and
along the Venetian Waterway
Park that runs behind the
schools.


The timing couldn't have
been worse.
Fifth-graders from Venice
Elementary had just walked
over to the high school audi-
torium for a graduation cere-
mony. Proud parents had
already assembled. Halfway
through the ceremony the
lockdown began, stranding
late comers who were trying
to attend their children's
graduation.
Those inside were
unaware of the events tran-
spiring outside.
Other concerned parents
who heard about the lock-
down and came to the school
were turned away by officers
until after the lockdown.
The lockdown ended at
10:30 a.m., just as the gradua-
tion proceedings concluded.
Students and parents then
returned to Venice Ele-
mentary to continue the cele-
bration with cake and punch.
Venice Elementary Prin-
cipal Theresa Baus praised

the elementary school staff
for their quick action in her
absence.
"(The lockdown) went
wonderful. We practice a
Code Red a couple times each
year. It went very smooth,"
Baus said.
The school is already
locked from the inside with
only the main entryway open,
she said.
During lockdown teachers
secured their classroom
doors with students safely
inside and turned out the
lights while police searched
the hallways and restrooms
on the first floor, Baus said.
"Our teachers did a great
job. They were very calm, very
professional. I'm very happy
with how it went."
Minor inconvenience
Baus credited police offi-
cers and staff for helping to
calm concerned parents and
preening anyone from over-
reacting.

Of the estimated 400 par-
ents and friends who attend-
ed the graduation, Baus said
she received only one com-
plaint about notification of
the lockdown.
"I was impressed with how
our officers responded," Sgt.
McNulty said. "Everybody
took an appropriate location
and had the high school and
elementary school secure
within minutes of the report."
"If there was going to be a
threat, it was going to be han-
dled swiftly."
"Society has changed since


Columbine in 1999. We will
always err on the side ofisafe-
ty ... even if doesn't seem
politically correct," he said,
referring to law enforcement
officials brandishing loaded
shotguns in the presence of
parents and children.
"The end result was a
minor inconvenience for a
few people. At some time (in
the future) that may be the
difference between life and
death."

Another busy hurricane season forecast


The National Oceanic & Atmospheric
Administration predicts the 2006 hurricane
season will not be as active as 2005 but still
more active than usual.


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Forecasters are confident
the coming hurricane season
will not be as busy as the 2005
hurricane season that shat-
tered nearly every record: 28
named storms, 15 hurricanes,
seven major hurricanes, six
making landfall in the United
States.
But that is not to say peo-
ple should let their guard
down.'

HURRICANE
SALES-TAX HOLIDAY
A 12-day sales tax holiday for,
' hurricane preparedness runs
through Thursday, June 1, the
start of the 2006 hurricane
season.
Dunng this 12-day period,
merchants will not charge
sales taxes on hurricane pre-
paredness items if the mer-
chandise does not exceed a
maximum value. This list
includes items such as flash-
lights and portable, self-pow-
ered light sources; portable
radios, two-way radios and
weather-band radios; gas or
diesel fuel containers;
portable generators; and
storm shutter devices.
A complete list of exempt
items is available on the
Florida Department of
Revenue Web site at
sun6.dms.state.fl.usidor/.
For more information about
hurncane preparedness, check
the All Hazards guide on the
county's Web site at scgov.net
or contact the Sarasota
County Call Center at 861-
5000.


The National Oceanic &
Atmospheric Administration
reported Monday that the
Atlantic basin is expected to


see up to 16 named storms,
up to 10 hurricanes and up to
six major hurricanes (Cat-
egory 3 or stronger with
winds in excess of 110 mph).
NOAA offers ranges of
what its scientists expect,
rather than being specific, in
an effort to show there are a
lot of factors that can influ-
ence these monster storms.
"Warmer ocean water
combined with lower wind
shear, weaker easterly trade
winds and a more favorable
wind pattern in the mid-lev-
els of the atmosphere are the
factors that collectively will
favor the development of
storms in greater numbers'
and to greater intensity," said
NOAA Administrator Vice
Adm. Conrad Lautenberger
Jr.
He warned of a 20-30 year
trend of above-average hurri-
cane activity with more land-
falls.
Lautenberger said there
were many variables that
affect where the next storm
may strike. He said it was rea-
sonable to expect two to four
storms could hit the coastline
of the United States.
"It's a troubling, yet real
possibility," he said.
Culture of preparedness
Last year, NOAA officials
initially predicted 12 to 15
named storms, seven to nine
of them becoming hurri-
canes, and three to five of
those hurricanes being major.
But the season turned out
to be much busier, breaking
records that had stood since
1851. In all, eight hurricanes
have hit or affected Florida
since 2004.
National Hurricane Center
Director Max Mayfield cau-
tioned people riot to focus on
the raw numbers.
"Research shows us we are
in a very active period, and


GRAPHIC COURTESY OF NOAA
Hurricane Katrina passes by Southwest Florida Aug. 26 on the way to landfall in Louisiana. Katrina was the most devastating of
the six hurricanes that hit the United States in 2005.


2005 should be a good moti-
vation to create a culture of
preparedness," Mayfield said.
Sarasota County Emerg-
ency Management Chief Ed
McCrane agreed with May-
field, saying it only takes one
storm to make a bad season.
McCrane emphasized that
people should take advantage
of the Florida Hurricane Sales
Tax Holiday to buy key sup-
plies.
On your own
Florida Emergency Man-
agement Director Craig
Fugate said having a plan for
family and business is crucial.
"It cuts across all of us,"
Fugate said. "The first goal is
survival. Far too many people
do not heed evacuation


orders. ... Mother Nature
always has the final word."
Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency Acting
Director Paulison said he was
troubled by people who had
actually suffered little dam-
age from Hurricane Wilma
clamoring for supplies within
hours of the storm.
"We have to be able to take
care of ourselves for the first
72 hours," he said. "What. it
does when we don't take care
of ourselves is stop our first
responders in the street from
helping those really in need."
McCrane added that peo-
ple should only go to public
shelters if they have absolute-
ly nowhere else to go.
As a rule of thumb, he said
people should go inland if


THE 2006 LINEUP
The Atlantic hurricane season
runs from June 1 to Nov. 30.
The names chosen for 2006
storms are: Alberto, Beryl,
Chris, Debby, Ernesto,
Florence. Gordon, Helene,
Isaac, Joyce. Kirk. Leslie,
Michael, Nadine, Oscar, Patty,
Rafael, Sandy, Tony, Valene
and William.


they live in a storm-surge
zone and hide from the wind
if they don't feel safe in their
homes.
"Most people only need to
go to their friends' house
nearby," McCrane said. If
people feel they must go far-
ther, they should avoid the


interstate and use the roads
that head to the East Coast.
Colorado State University
researchers William Gray and
Phillip Klotzbach forecast up
to 17 named storms and nine
hurricanes, five of them
intense. They wil release an
updated forecast May 31 to
coincide with the start of the
hurricane season.

OUR VIEW



Mental preparation is the key to safety


t's incredible to us that the recently re-
leased National Hurricane Survival In-
itiative study found that 56 percent of
people don't feel vulnerable to a hurricane or
related tornadoes and floods.
Fifty-six percent!
Granted, this was a survey conducted in
Atlantic and Gulf Coast states, and perhaps
some who were questioned have yet to expe-
rience a hurricane. We hope, given
Southwest Florida's hurricane experience,
that the percentages shown in the survey do
not reflect the thinking of our residents.
If you are not convinced that hurricanes
are killers, and that storm surge is dangerous,
then you only have to check the statistics
from Hurricane Katrina.
More than 1,000 people died. The storm


surge wiped out much of Biloxi and Gulfport
Miss. The pictures of New Orleans are still
vivid in our minds. Many homes were lost in
Alabama as well.
Charlotte County was spared a major
storm surge when Hurricane Charley struck
and, even so, we all remember what
destruction was caused. Some people are still
trying to piece together their lives.
Another unbelievable statistic is the 13
percent of those surveyed who said they
might not evacuate if ordered to. Worse yet,
some said they would not leave at all.
Those who live along the coast and said
* they would not leave might want to post the
names of their next-of-kin prominently on
their home so those sifting through debris
will find them. Not leaving when a mandato-


ry evacuation has been ordered is just dan-
gerous thinking.
Sixty percent of those questioned said
they have no family disaster plan. Perhaps
that's because we are not into hurricane sea-
son yet, and when you are thinking about
that beach vacation or trip to the mountains,
it's hard to focus on a family disaster plan.
We urge you to take some time soon and
develop your plan it truly could be a life-
saver. ,
A hurricane survival kit was not available
in the homes of 68 percent interviewed.
Come on, folks, that's a pretty easy, item to
put together. Just buying some nonperish-
able food that you like and'lots of bottled
water will get you started.
You might check out the initiative's Web


site at hurricanesafety.org for a more com-
plete list.
One last statistic from the survey really
jumps out 83 percent have done nothing
to strengthen their home. We are not sure
why someone would not consider at. least
buying some plywood to cover windows. And
now might be a good time to buy, while
there's a sales-tax holiday,.and before a storm
causes a run on supplies.
Polls and percentages are just that, and do
,not reflect what families might actually do
when a hurricane is approaching. We hope
thoughts will focus more on safety at that
time.
One thing is for sure: The 2006 hurricane
season is almost here.
We urge you to get ready now.


C


Renaissance in



North Venice


ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST


After the design charette
sponsored in January by Gulf
Coast Community Founda-
tion of Venice, which focused
on the foundation's "Bridges"
project for affordable housing
and included developers of
neighboring projects, I heard
that developer Michael Miller
was planning some interest-
ing and positive features in
his North Venice project, now
called "Renaissance."
Having been critical of
some of Miller's projects I saw
as much higher than neces-
sary or desirable, I contacted
him at the time and offered
him the opportunity to dis-
cuss these attractive features
if he wished. He didn't.
So I read with interest
Assistant Editor J.J. Andrews'
article of May 14, providing
details about the project,
which involves.a cluster of
theaters with 1,800 seats;
295,000 square feet of com-
mercial retail space; and
more than 800 living units, of
which at least 160 will be ded-
icated for rental.
Of interest was the report
that City Manager Marty
Black had high praise for the
design, identifying it as
matching. New Urbanism
design principles.
In earlier conversations I
had with Black, he expressed
serious reservations about
New Urbanism, which some
see as a direct descendent of
the work of John Nolen,
Venice's original designer.
Black's major criticisms
were that advocates of New
Urbanism were also promot-
ing changes in zoning that he
felt shortcut the public pro-
cess and were, essentially,
authoritarian. The Urbanists'
credo, he said, was do it my
way, or it won't work.
Here in town, Betty In-
tagliata of the Venice Area.
Historical Society, former
judge Don O'Connell and this
columnist, among others,
argued that the principles
could be applied without the
weaknesses Black perceived.
Experts on Nolen's work
brought to Venice to speak on
this "model" city also felt that
new developments in North
Venice could continue No-
len's work, perhaps through
"mini-cities" within the over-
all city limits. It appears Miller
and his architects agree, at


least to some degree.
As I sat at the counter in
the planning and zoning de-
partment reading the re-
quests for exceptions and
conditional uses that accom-
panied the site plan, a city
council member came by,
saw what I was looking at and
commented, "Marty must like
this project. He is trying to
rally support for it by recruit-
ing the New Urbanism advo-
cates."
Since I felt that his com-
ment was informal, I am giv-
ing him anonymity, although
he did not request it. He is
someone who might ordinar-
ily be seen as a pro-develop-
ment vote. He also opined
that the project was not really
New Urbanism.
The nature
of North Venice
Although the news stories
did not include discussion of
heights, I found when I read
the materials that approval of
this project with the request-
ed 'conditional approval" of
heights to 85 feet, will deter-
mine the nature of that area
of the city for the future.
When the planning com-
mission and council approv-
ed heights of 57 feet without
blinking an eye for an nearby
project, I guessed that the
stage was set for this new area
to rise above the height pre-
ferred by city residents for the
city as it now exists.
Former Mayor Dean Cala-
maras told me, when.I asked
him why allow 57 feet, "It's
way out there in the fields."
There are seven buildings
proposed along the northern
border of the project that the
application says will have five
floors, six units per floor, but
will rise to 85 feet perhaps
25-30 feet higher than many
current five-story buildings.
That height is to the mid-
point of the roof line, so the
top of the roof with design
features would be above 85
feet.
The actual drawings of ele-
vations submitted for these
building shows them to be 75
feet to the mid-point. Plan-
ning staff, just beginning their
review, did not know why
there was a discrepancy.
The information presented
did not identify these build-
ings as including the rental
units, but it seems likely that
the argument will be that the
extra height will allow afford-
able rents, beginning as low
as $500 for efficiencies ac-
cording to Andrews' story.
Pros and cons
I found the most attractive
part of the project, as shown
in the drawings, to be the
commercial units with resi-
dential units above. There are

Move the school, change the island


Editor:
I am a resident ofVenice island and am absolutely horrified
at the prospect that Venice High School may move off the
island. The character of the island would never be the same.
I know the joy of strolling along the Intracoastal Waterway
on a cool fall evening and hearing a game being played on the
football field; of seeing the students come and go every day
during the school year..
I especially know the joy that Venice is getting more youth-
ful residents. My wife and I are prime examples. In a couple
years, our daughter will be attending the wonderful, brand-
newVenice Elementary School. As time goes on, I hope she can
attend a new Venice High School, still on the island.
The reason for this letter is to plead with officials not to
move Venice High School. Yes, rebuild it for sure. But don't take
it away from Venice island and forever change the character of
this paradise.
Please don't cave in to Gulf Coast Community Foundation,
which, obvious to me, wants to do nothing but get rid of the
high school and slap high-density, cheap housing there, in the
heart of the island. I think Ms. Hansen has very little to do with
promoting the betterment of the island.
And above all, please don't cave in to developers who just
want to line the Intracoastal with mega-high-rise condos and
leave town with bags full of money.
I actually like what Mike Miller is doing to make the island
more upscale, I really do, but hands off the high school!
Andrew Patterson
Venice

EDITOR'S NOTE: GCCFV CEO Teri Hansen says the foundation's role
is purely as a catalyst to open up a community dialogue about the future
of the school, whether on the island or off..


Pumped up in
Englewood

Editor:
Englewood was the inex-
pensive place to live between
Boca Grande and Sarasota,
but not anymore. Our gas
prices in Englewood are high-
er than Sarasota, Venice and
even the Florida Keys.
On a recent trip to the
Keys, I paid $2.69 a gallon at
the Wal-Mart in Homestead.
Today's price at the Wal-Mart
in Englewood is $2.86. Gas
was as low as $2.82 in the


Florida Keys, where every-
thing cost more.
I was shocked yesterday to
see the gas price at a station
on U.S. 41 in Sarasota at $2.68
per gallon. Why is gas almost
40 cents a gallon more for that
same brand in Englewood -
$3.06 per gallon? Gas prices in
Englewood average between
$2.93 and $2.96 per gallon.
This is the highest in our area.
I combine my trips to
Sarasota and Venice to fill up
my car and encourage every-
one to do the same until
Englewood gas prices come


down.
Are gas prices
wood being fixed
profits? That is a q
our attorney gene

Letter was same old

Editor:
I can't believe the Gondo-
lier Sun would print a letter
Friday bashing President
Bush.
The letter is typical of all
the left-wing talking points
that have been around since
the last supper.
Democrats still cannot get
over the fact that the election
was not "stolen," as they say.
How many times do they
have to count the votes, and
by how many different groups
before they can let it go?
The writer fails to mention
all the Democratic politicians
who went along with the
decision to go to war in Iraq.
Every dollar we spend in
Iraq is well spent. We have not
had a terror attack in the
United States, partly because
of our security measures and
partly because the enemy is
busy trying to stop all the
progress we are making in
Iraq.
Most people would under-
stand President Bush's resolve
in Iraq if they would just think
back to Sept. 11 and remem-
ber the costs of that attack:
3,000 lives, the stock market
crash, the airline bailout and
the countless businesses that
failed as a result of those
attacks.
I'm sure the writer would

The Legislature has moved
off the state's front pages as
attention turns toward the
September primaries and the
November elections.
At the tail end of his gover-
norship, Jeb Bush did well but
did not get all he hoped for.
Locally we are most pleased
by the joint efforts, including
the governor's, to secure the
Babcock Ranch preservation.
Some important issues did
not get to a floor vote.
Still, it was one of the most
productive Legislatures of the
last dozen years. The
Republican leadership ofAlan
Bense in the House, Tom Lee
in the Senate and an involved
governor made the big differ-
ence.
Bense gained a reputation
for fairness, even among
members of the minority
party. It was Lee who pushed
the bill requiring lobbyists to
disclose their fees. We will be
seeing the first of those
reports this week. Along with
legislation doing away with
the free-and-easy wining and
dining of legislators by lobby-
ists, it is a step in the right
direction.
Another bill, floated in the
Senate with the backing of
Tom Lee, would have taken
on the nearly unregulated
slush funds, known as 527
funds for Committees of
SContinuous Existence, avail-
i able to legislators. First used
by legislators to help in their
campaigns for leadership,
these funds have proliferated.

several designs, all Mediter-
ranean, and the variety pre-
sented avoids the monotony
of so. many developments,
including Miller's.
The taller buildings are
much less attractive than the
lower-rise commercial/resi-
dential. The 85-foot "towers." !..
as they are identified, are fair-
ly close to being simple boxes. '
The plans show a dense
network of residential build-
ings, most 55 to 65 feet, with
seven buildings at 45 feet.
There are interior roads, park-
ing lots and a pedestrian grid
that links the residential area
of about 50 acres to the 23
acres of commercial develop-
ment including the theater.
Within the residential area
there is a swimming pool and
a small park providing a cen-
tral focus. The walkability is a
strong plus.
The question facing coun- [
cil members is, do they want
Venice, including the new.
annexations, to stay, true to
the Nolen spirit of lower
heights, as recommended by
the Nolen experts, or are they
willing to give up Nolen's
vision?
The planning commission
and council will need to
examine other areas of suc-
cessful affordable housing to
see if heights of 85 feet are
really necessary.
The future, as the saying
goes, is in their hands.

The Republican House has
become too fond of these
funds to curb their use.
The governor tried again
this year but failed to lift the
straitjacket of the class-size
amendment passed in a citi-
zens' initiative. The intent of
the amendment, to improve
the school system, leaves little
room for flexibility and will
cost billions in new class-
rooms and additional staffing
while eating up dollars to
raise teacher pay.
Newspaper publishers
were disappointed that a bill
to bring state law into confor-

not make it to a floor vote. The

governor will name commis-

We have yet to see just
what the governor will veto. A
local bill that does not make a
lot of sense to us is the sur-
prise, last-minute legislation
that calls for creating a
branch of the Second District
Court of Appeal on the Fort
Myers campus of Florida Gulf
Coast University. This was not
on the university's agenda.
Locally we had hopes of a
new district court of appeal
located in Punta Gorda, serv-
ing Sarasota to Naples and
the neighboring inland coun-
ties. Currently, there are five
state appeal courts three
on the east coast in Miami,
West Palm Beach and Day-
tona. The other two are in
Tallahassee and Lakeland.
The Lakeland court has an
annex in Tampa.
We know that rapidly
growing FGCU is sure to fill its
available space without an
acre to spare.. Only an un-
planned law school at the
university could justify this
bill. It is hard to get excited
about another law school.
We seem to be able to cre-
ate enough of those degrees
now. Let's hope the governor
vetoes this one.

Unsafe conditions. Observations of a long-term visitor since
1958. The Nokomis Beach drum circle is fun, hope it continues.
However, spectators are trampling the sea oats on the sand
dunes between the beach and parking lot. Others are bringing
beverages in glass containers. Smokers continue to use the
beach as an ashtray. How about a poster contest for school kids
on curbing this? Why is there a crab trap inside the swimming
area of Nokomis Beach? On April 26 there were crabs in the
trap. Will someone harvest or empty the trap? The manatee
slow-speed zone at the Nokomis jetties should be extended to
the end of the jetties because manatees have been sighted on
several occasions on the north side of the north jetty. Also, the
wake from speeding boats hassles the fishermen on both sides,
as well as kayakers. It's an unsafe condition.


Major issues. Report of ma-
jor issues for our city council.

affordable housing. So far it
only helped high condos. The
marina is to add 200-400 boat,
slips on the island to help the
airport. What does this do to
bridge openings? My ques-
tion is, are we getting the cart
before the horse? The major
issue should be a traffic im-

Board denies rezoning of land next to scrub preserve


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

A revised "eco-friendly"
petition for a subdivision that
would have been surrounded
by the Manasota Scrub
Preserve did not pass muster
Tuesday.
The Sarasota County com-
missioners unanimously de-
nied a rezoning petition that
would have increased the
number of potential homes
on the 4.9 acres of land from
two to nine.
Commissioner Jon Thax-


ton said the parcel is sur-
rounded by low-density resi-
dential and adding intensity
would be totally out of char-
acter.
"I appreciate the offer for
eco-friendly but it is a matter
of magnitude," he said of hav-
ing eight or nine homes ver-
sus the allowable two.,
Christi Phelps of Corin Bay
Real Estate and Marketing
Inc. made her case before the
board on behalf of the owner,
David Olshansky of Minne-
sota.
The property is bordered


on three sides by the 145-acre
preserve on the south side of
Manasota Beach Road.
Phelps made an argument
that a deed-restricted, eco-
friendly enclave would marry
well with a minimal amount
of impact on the preserve and
would be "a community the
county could eventually be
proud of and be at the fore-
front of being better for the
environment."
She added that the county
would have no control over
any two homes that could
now be built there, versus a


plan to preserve 1 acre and
restrict the use of pesticides,
fencing and even cats.

A bad fit
Three people spoke during
the public comment portion
of the petition of the hearing,
each saying the subdivision
would not fit within the
neighborhood.
Marilyn Richter and Jo-
seph Rex Jr. Live across from
the preserve and say the road
is already too busy and pre-
serving the area should be a
priority.


David Evans, of the Venice
Area Audubon Society, re-
minded the board that the
scrub preserve was the first
parcel bought through the
county's environmentally
sensitive lands program.
"This is. an inappropriate
use of that property com-
pared to the total use," Evans
said.
The property is described
as pine and scruby flatwoods.
Phelps claimed the rezon-
ing was similar to a zoning
about 400 yards west on
Manasota Beach Road and


the 224-unit Pennington
Place subdivision on the far
side of State Road 776.
Commissioner Shannon
Staub said Pennington Place
is a separate issue and that
the two homes available for
development on the land is
"about as much impact as the
area can withstand."
Richter and Rex said after
the board denied the petition
that they were thrilled by the
decision.
"This is very important to
keeping the area the way it is
supposed to be," Rex said.


County to expand shelter capacity under new law


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Legislation to allow com-
munities to use public money
to harden private buildings as
public shelters could become
the answer to a growing prob-
lem.
That is the belief of Dave
Harrawood, the acting com-
munity development director
for Sarasota County, told the
commissioners Tuesday that
new legislation could help
greatly expand the county's
shelter capacity.
The legislation, which still
needs the signature of the


governor, allows county sur-
tax revenue to be used on pri-
vate facilities, such as club-
houses and other buildings.
The county has allocated
$10 million to harden public
buildings and schools, and
with at least half of that still to
spend, Harrawood said they
were running out of public
buildings to harden.
"I'm very excited about
this," he said. "We will be able
to use that revenue source to
add shelter capacity."
Harrawood laid out crite-
ria that will need to be fol-
lowed before any project is
approved.


The criteria include: a
minimum of 19 feet or greater
elevation for buildings; no
flooding hazards; compliance
with current building and fire
codes; no hazardous materi-
als; enhanced hurricane pro-
'tection area; large enough to
hold 250 shelter spaces, or a
space with more than 3,750-
square feet; no post-storm
isolation; space for shelter
staff; and a minimum 25-year
agreement for that facility,
with the agreement to be
transferable.
Such a partnership can be
found at Bishop Nevins High
School, which used $300,000


from a different source, and
added 3,000 spaces to the
county's shelter capacity.
He said the Bishop Nevins
work shows what most build-
ings will need, which is win-
dow and door protection.

No gates
Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton said he was disappointed
such leases will be so short.
"If we are hardening and
appreciating the value of the
building, it seems it would
need to be much longer,"
Thaxton said.
Harrawood said that in
early talks, owners of such


buildings have asked for sig-
nificantly shorter leases, and
that longer leases would be
preferred.
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson said a lot of the poten-
tial partnerships will be at
clubhouses in gated commu-
nities and wanted to be sure
that the space is available to
the entire public and not
gated off for residents only.
Harrawood said that
would be a requirement and
the space available would be
based on summer residency
numbers, which could add to
the available numbers.
Harrawood said there are
I


also other preferred criteria,
which include: existing gen-
erator or switch gear to allow
easy generator hook-up; a
kitchen facility; showers; and
toilets for 40 people.
"We will fine tune this as
necessary," he said.
The selection processwill be
done on a semi-annualbasis to
coincide with budget process.
A risk assessment proce-
dure will also be coordinated
with the American Red Cross.
The board supported the
criteria, and members said
they were excited about the
possibility of expanding the
county's shelter capacity.


Sarasota County to talk new stadium with Reds


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Several puzzle pieces need
to come together to keep the
Cincinnati Reds as happy res-
idents of Sarasota.
The first piece is a signa-
ture from Gov. Jeb Bush on
legislation granting the $15
-million to the-"ityiand'count'y .'
to pay for upgrades to or
the replacement of Ed
Smith Stadium.
The second is a deal
between the city and the Reds
on what the team wants and
how much they are willing to


share in costs for what they
want. Those talks were to
begin Tuesday.
The third piece is having a
conceptual plan ready as
other pieces fall into place,
such as the current idea to
relocate the spring training
complex to the Sarasota
County Fairgrounds, or ex-
panding the existing complex
within the current confines
on Tuttle Avenue.
The final piece is for the
Tourism Development Coun-
cil and county commission-
ers to approve a half-penny
bed tax.


The tourism council re-
cently heard various scenar-
ios that could keep the Reds
in Sarasota and learned that
any plan would cost at least
$30 million and likely more
than $40 million.
County Administrator Jim
Ley said the relocation of the
Reds to the fairgrounds is just
one of the possibilities being
considered as part of a bigger
plan. That plan includes
using the existing stadium as
a recreational sports com-
plex, which has been dubbed
"Englewood Sports Complex
North."

Films offer economic


diversity to Sarasota


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


Creating a film commis-
sion in Sarasota County may
not make a good Hollywood
script, but attracting produc-
tion companies to the area
could be the stuff that dreams
are made of.
With little fanfare, an ad
hoc committee has been cre-
ated to explore the idea of cre-
ating a formal film commis-
sion that would try to attract
Hollywood big-wigs to use
the area as a setting.
Working on the heels of the
successful Sarasota Film Fest-
ival, the county's Tourism De-
velopment Council and Eco-
nomic Development Council
has decided the time was
right to figure what is needed
to develop a formal film
office.
Sarasota Convention &Vis-
itors Bureau Executive Di-
rector Virginia Haley said the
committee held its first meet-


ing a week ago and they are
looking at how other commu-
nities attract production,
companies to the area.
Commission Chair David
Mills said he has been talking
about creating a film com-
mission for years.
"We've sat on the sidelines
on this issue," he told his fel-
low board members recently.
"This is important stuff for
economic development of.
our community."
He sees film as a chance to
diversify the economic base
and a chance to tap into a
huge source of wealth.
The committee' will meet
with state film officials and
industry experts in the com-
ing months. It has until
September to report its find-
ings.
The committee will be
seeking public input at a spe-
cial meeting 1-3 p.m. Wed-
nesday, May 31.

Trip detectors could



smooth 1-75 flow


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Anyone who regularly dri-
ves north on Interstate 75 in
the morning or evening has
likely come upon stopped
traffic in Sarasota.
The traffic is not necessari-
ly from a crash, but from vehi-
cles backed up on an exit
ramp waiting for a traffic light
to change.
The members of the Sara-
sota-Manatee Metropolitan
Planning Organization were
told Monday that relief could
soon be on the way.
Ben Walker of the Florida
Depafrment of Transpor-
i station said there wepeplapsito
S'install trip detectors on'the
- ramp to change the traffic sig-
nals to green if traffic backs up
to a certain point.
Venice City Council mem-
berVickiTaylor said a warning
sign should be put up be-
cause of the danger to mo-
torists who are unaware of the
regular problem.
"I drive the interstate every
day, and it is very dangerous,"
Taylor said.
Manatee County Commis-
sioner Joe McClash agreed
with.Taylor, saying improve-
ments suggested by FDOT
will go a long way to helping
relieve the problem, but signs
need to be a part of the solu-
tion.

Frustrated
FDOT District 1 Secretary
Stanley Cann said 1-75 is
going through a comprehen-
sive safety study to determine
what can be done to resolve
some of the problems at the
interchanges and increase the
overall safety.
The study is not expected
to be completed for two or
three months, Cann said.
Sarasota County Commis-
sion Chair David Mills said he
was frustrated by studies that
seem to accomplish nothing.
He bited the recent rejec-
tion of his requests to lower
the speed limit along 1-75.
"Time's wasting; we need
to have somI ai&in'di l 'Mills

McClash said he was frus-
trated by how long it takes for
interchange improvements to
be approved by FDOT. He
suggested that both counties
save land for potential future
interchanges to avoid higher
land costs.
Sarasota Commissioner
Jon Thaxton rejected the idea.
He said McClash's idea of
using the model of Miami-
Dade and Broward counties
was not what he wanted to
see in Sarasota.

Give Hall


of Fame


a hand

The first three induction
ceremonies into the Venice
Sports Hall of Fame were
sellouts.
The community toasted
the likes of Mark Guthrie,
Donnie Young, Al Mitchell
and 21 others.
The fourth annual induc-
tion ceremonies for the
"Hall" will be held on Thurs-
day night, June 1.
For some reason, res-
ponse has been slow, which
has Hall of Fame selection
committee member and
Bogey's manager Mark Cos-
tanzo a little worried.
"The status is not very
good," he said. "Ticket sales
are kind of low. We did a
recent third mailing to try to
spark some interest. There's
not much time left." June 1 is
just a week and a day away.
The Class of 2006 is cer-
tainly a good one.
There's local senior soft-
ball guru Lou Giovanini.
Venice is regarded as the un-
official Senior Softball Capital
of the USA and Giovanini has
been right in the middleof it.
r"He plays on the travel ball
giant Florida ILg6ids. He'also
is commissioner of the Venice
Senior Leagues at the Bypass
Fields. Back in his native
Indiana, Giovanini was a leg-
endary high school baseball
coach.
Bert Miller is the perfect
selection as someone from
the community who un-
selfishly gives an incredible
amount of time to kids. He is
active in both the Venice
Little League and Venice
Vikings Pop Warner Football.
Brian Wheatley is another
excellent selection. He has
brought immense volleyball
wisdom to the town. He is
also a super coach. Wheatley
brought Venice High its sec-
ond straight state volleyball
championship last fall. An-
other one could be in the
stars this coming fall.
If you are friends of any
of the three, attending the
induction ceremony and
banquet is a great way of
supporting them. You'll see a
great program. Have a great
meal and see their plaques
unveiled on the Bogey's "Wall
of Fame" for the first time.
The cost is $60 per person.
Centerpiece sponsorship
costs $100. An inductee
sponsor is $250. A table
sponsor is $600. The banquet
will begin at 6:30 p.m.
In addition, the third an-
nual Big Chief Award will be
handed out. It is sponsored
by the Gondolier Sun. It goes
to the top VHS sports team
for the school year. The
winner for 2003-2004 was
wrestling. The winner for
2004-2005 was volleyball.
The winner for 2005-2006?
To reserve a seat, call the
Rotary Futures Program (488-
6726) or Mark Costanzo at
Bogey's (488-9156).
Car wash for Chloe, Katie
The Venice Velocity girls
basketball program is holding
a car wash Sunday to benefit
Katie Matthews and Chloe
West. All of the proceeds will
be donated to the families to
help defray medical expenses.
It will take place from noon-4
p.m. at Pit Stop Auto Shop on

Inner beast triggers Sigafoose's Primal Quest


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Some people spend their
down time in front of the TV
watching sports. Exercise is a
trip to the fridge or the bath-
room.
Others are more adventur-
ous. Their idea of getting out
might be playing a round of
golf.
And then there are the-few
... the proud ... the Chriss
Sigafooses. The inner beast
calls for something much
more demanding.
Sigafoose, a Venice chiro-
practor, and his team of bud-
dies participate in something
called adventure races.
These events involve hik-
ing, biking, mountain climb-
ing, rappelling, kayaking and
rafting across courses stretch-
ing hundreds of miles through
rugged terrain.
"The elitist of adventure
races is Primal Quest," said
Sigafoose, who will turn 50
his next birthday. "It's like the
Tour de France."
A Primal Quest race can
last up to 10 days, although
the top teams cover the dis-
tance in half the time. Par-
ticipants must carry their
own food and drink. Sleep is
minimal since it's a race


against other four-person
teams.
Sigafoose and teammates
Ron Rossnagle, Marie Volk-
hardt and Jason Amadori will
soon be embarking on the
2006 Prim-al Quest trek that
starts in Utah's Moab Desert,
transcends into cold moun-
tains and finishes up back
down in the hot desert.
In all, it's 500 and some
miles.
"You start out in 110
degrees and a few days
you're in 30 degrees in the
mountains," said Sigafoose of
the trip starting June 25 and
running to July5.
Sounds pretty demanding
for a Florida team called the
"Flatlanders." Throw in the
fact that the team is one of the
oldest on the circuit, and it's
more impressive.
To boot, the Flatlanders
have a respectable track
record.
"We've done one primal
quest," Sigafoose said. "It was
three years ago in the Sierra
Nevadas. Out of 80 teams, we
finished 41st."
The Flatlanders practice by
climbing trees and biking
back and forth over interstate
overpasses. There are practice
runs to hilly land just north
of Tampa.

The Flatlanders will be heading to Utah at the end of June to
compete in the grueling Primal Quest Adventure Race. Team
member Chriss Sigafoose is a Venice chiropractor.


"Some teams have corpo-
rate sponsors and train all
the time," Sigafoose said.
"We do it because we love
the challenge. It takes a
month out of your life."
Sigafoose has participated
in more than 20 adventure

This will be his first one
without a support team pro-
viding food at transition
points.
"They would cook for
us," Sigafoose said. "We
won't have that luxury this
time."


In fact, there won't be any
luxuries at all.
Picture someone doing
three straight hours of navi-
gating whitewater on a
boogie board with a big pack
on their back. Picture as-
cending icy sheets of rock.
Picture two hours of sleep
and up and at 'em.
Ninety teams with racers
representing at least 19 coun-
tries have been selected to
participate in the 2006 Primal
Quest Expedition Adventure
Race. That makes it the largest
expedition-length adventure
race ever staged.
The winner's share .is
$250,000 one of'the largest
ever in adventure racing his-
tory.
With the big 50 knocking
on the door, Sigafoose said
this will be his last race of
this magnitude.
"I want to do 24-hour
races or two-day races," he
said. "There's a sense of sad-
ness this will be my final
Primal Quest, but there will
be other challenges."


Athlete of the Week

Al Mitchell is back, and Venice High football is better for it.
Mitchell decided not to play football last year. He came out
to spring practice this year and looks to be a big part of the
team on offense and defense. He rushed for 158 yards and
scored three touchdowns in the spring game at Southeast
Saturday.

Tuscano addition OK'd over turtle concerns


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER
A plan to add 42 acres to a
huge development on U.S. 41
stirred up a lengthy conser-
vation debate about how to
protect the species that live
where developers want to
build.
Sarasota County commis-
sioners unanimously agreed
to approve a petition to
amend the Tuscano develop-
ment, adding 42 acres and
33 residential units to the
project, but they were very
displeased with the plight of
the gopher tortoises.
A recent column by Carl
Hiaasen, a novelist and a
columnist with the Miami
Herald, cited the Tuscano
project as needlessly endan-
gering more
than 200 tor-
toises on the
2,418-acre
.property, '; '
which will
eventually
have 1,584
residential
units, The
board ques- Thaxton
tioned why
this was allowed to happen.
The 'development is
bounded by East Manasota
Key Road to the south, U.S.
41 to the north between
Woodmere Park and Rockley
boulevards, and Venice East
Boulevard to the far west.
Taylor Ranch 'Elementary
School is also just outside
the northeast corer of the


veloper, Solomon said he
had no idea where that
number came from and that
he is doing everything pos-
sible to relocate and save as
many of the tortoises as
possible.
More than 40 of the


tortoises are already planned
to be be sent to southwest-
ern preserves.
Jeffery Boone, the attorney
representing the developer,
said no gopher tortoises
have been killed yet.
"The ultimate goal is to


have a better habitat with-
out killing any," Boone said.
"Every attempt will be made
to relocate all of them with-
out killing any of them."
Thaxton said relocation
within the immediate area
would. probably work well


for the tortoises, but relocat-
ing them farther away would
be impossible. Tortoises, he
explained, carry antibodies
to protect against local bac-
teria, but a move beyond the
immediate area would prove
deadly.


"That is why the state
does this," he said of allow-
ing tortoises to be plowed
under in the name of develop-
ment.

property.
Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton first cited the recent col-
umn and wondered whether
the wildlife management
plan was consistent with
local regulations.
The short answer was
yes, because the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
- Commission allows develop-
ers to plow under tortoise
-nests as long -as there are
areas of conservation. -,- -..
Thaxton said the board
needs to re-examine its land
development review process
for protected species to see
what can be done beyond
what the state allows.
Brett Solomon, an en-
vironmental consultant for
the develop-
er, said the
entire project
will have
more than
S,"-:"-- 800 acres of
preservation,
and there are
two specific

Boone zones for the
tortoises
totaling 138 acres along the
southern edge of the devel-
opment. That is more than
the 107 required by the FWC.
The southeast comer cov-
ers an area surrounding
Forked Creek, which Solo-
mon said had the highest
concentration of tortoises
: and would preserve a distinct
wildlife corridor. The other-
would be in the southwest.
Goal: No kills

says more than 200 tortoises
would be buried by the de-

In the presence of the future:


"Standard Man


BY JOEL FOSTER
CORRESPONDENT

"The most advanced tech-
iology of its kind in the
nation," was the description
provided by Bill Lyons, Chair
of the board of directors at
Sarasota Memorial Hospital.
S"Ultrasophisticated" is a
term used by Medical Educa-
t on Technologies, Inc. of
Sarasota, developers.
SLyons and METI spokes-
men were referring to a new
type of robot that can do a lot
more than a car-crash
dummy or a humanoid screw
driver.
! "We can now simulate dis-
aster and patient 'emergen-
cies without risking real
patient safety, experiencing it
without lives being at stake,"
said Sarasota Hospital CEO
and President, Gwen Mac-
Kenzie.'
"Man, that thing's damn
scary," was an assessment of
TV camera crewmen covering
the event.
The assessment and
descriptions were reserved


for an inanimate object that
became animated through
the technical expertise and
computer wizardry encom-
passed in METI's incredible
Huma Patient Simulator,
"Stancard Man" or "Stan," as
he is presently known at the
Center for Advanced Surg-
ery.
Star was brought to life in
Saraso a through the unflag-
ging efforts of the Sarasota
Memorial Healthcare Foun-
dation which is celebrating
its 30th year as a nonprofit
separate fundraising organi-
zation committed to improv-
ing patient safety and services
through education.
At SMH, the future was no
longer out somewhere be-
yond Ihe horizon or tickling
the edges of theory. It was
there, on the table, like a real
patient, breathing although
inaniniate, showing a pulse
although not moving and
with vital signs displayed in
computerized lines moving
across a monitor, just like a
real patient in a hospital bed
- but not.


and patient s


During National Patient
Safe~t Week,.Sarasota Me-
morial Hospital was upping
the ante to a stellar level in
that regard. Through grants
from Intertape Polymer
Group, the Roberta Leventhal
Sudakoff Foundation and
the Harry Sudakoff Founda-
tion, the door to patient
safety was opened substan-
tially.
Stan or Standard Man or
Human Patient Simulator,
name him what you will,
takes, in the words of Bill
Lyons, "a proactive step to
ensure the safety of our
patients," by providing' the.
opportunity to reduce pre-
ventable medical errors
through a team-training en-
vironment in situations that
imitate reality to an awe-
somely accurate degree.
Stan is a life-sized man-
nequin containing software
that has been intricately,
mathematically formulated
to imitate human response
to a nearly limitless array of
conditions, be they cardio-
vascular, respiratory,' meta-


Recognized for a job well done, surrounding Stan after bringing him back from flat lining after a
cardiac arrest scenario are, right to left, Dawn Oder, RN and coordinator for the Center of
Advanced Surgery; Thomas Nutter, Department Head of Anesthesia; Dr. Mark Whitman, head of
the four member team; Lisa Baumgarden, and Jennifer Hamrick, both clinical educators with

bolic or far beyond. He talks,
breathes, has a pulse, has
eyes that dilate, a body that
can bleed ... in short, comes
as close to being human as a
body can, short. of getting
acne; but who knows, METI
magicians might even be at
work on that by now in a
teen version of Stan.
"The model operates phy-
siologically just as a human
would," said Dawn Oder, a
registered nurse and the co-
ordinator for the Center of.
Advanced Surgery who would
be acting as the scenario
editor for the four-member
team that would be reacting '
to Stan's difficulties a
scripted scenario but one
that was unknown to the
attending staff. "It has the,
ability to read oxygen levels
and has drug recognition
capabilities," Oder said, stat-
ing also that Stan could rec-
ognize incorrectly adminis-
tered drugs and their dosages
and would react accordingly.
"Stan is integrated to
everything and reacts to
whatever is programmed by
the scenario director," said
Thomas Nutter, one of the
team members and Depart-
ment Head of Anesthesia. "It
imitates life to an amazing
degree, anywhere from a 24-
to an 80-year-old in Stan's


case."
The scenarios are caught
on, four ceiling-mounted
cameras set at different
angles to provide a compre-
hensive look at the team's
response for the entire sce-
nario. "Then we'll go into
the next room where it can
be played back on a large

screen TV (which is divided
into four segments corre-
sponding to the location of
the four cameras) to critique
our performance see
what we did right or wrong
and discuss how we could
improve," Nutter said.
How life-like the patient
and how intensely accurate
the scenario was witnessed
by this reporter in the simula-
tion presented on March 7.
Stan lay on the gurney and,
through Oder's voice controls,
conversed with team mem-
ber Jennifer Hamrick, clinical
educator representing, per-
haps, an emergency room
RN. Stan's conversation was
patient-typical, everyday,
breezy at first, saying he was
there because of his wife's
concern about him com-
plaining of pains in his stom-
ach and chest, the give-and-
take of initial gathering of
symptoms.

Representing Medical Education Technologies, Inc., at the.
ribbon cutting and simulation were Tess Mitchell, Director of
Marketing, left, and Jane O'Reilly, Director of Sales. METI has
developed an entire family of human patient simulators, they
said, with 1400 patient simulators already issued to various
schools and medical facilities. Also, a less sophisticated model
is used by the military for combat medicine training.

SOUiH NEW


Local man to use money for peace


BY GAVIN OFF
ASSISTANT ENGLEWOOD EDITOR

For years, Peter Duisberg
has fought for peace.
He's spoken in meetings,
prayed in churches and sung
in libraries all in the effort to
stop warring nations from
killing.
Now the Englewood resi-
dent will donate money.
Duisberg recently sold near-
ly 10 aces of land near the
intersection of Old Englewood
Road and Artists Avenue.
Duisberg said he would put
most of the money, about
$500,000, toward developing
or supporting a peace founda-
tion.
Duisberg and others are
currently setting up the
administration and guidelines


for the foundation.
"I figured I wanted to use
the money for something use-
ful," Duisberg said.
Duisberg had owned the
land since the early 1970s and
had kept it vacant in part
because his late brother loved
Englewood's natural environ-
ment.
But he sold the land to a
Sarasota developer in
December 2004, saying he
wanted to spend the money to
help spread peace.
"We have to be much more
serious about controlling all
the weapons we have in this
world," said Duisberg, a mem-
ber of the Englewood Peace
Initiative Coalition.
"The people working for
peace around here are doing it
against the odds because peo-


ple are apathetic."
Bulldozers and heavy con-
struction equipment have
been clearing the land, located
at 695 Artists Ave., for weeks.
The land is now mostly
cleared, with large debris and
mulch piles spread about.
The property is zoned for
4.5 single-family units per
acre, said Chris Davis, Sarasota
County's Community
Redevelopment Area coordi-
nator.
Duisberg said 19 duplexes
are planned for the property,
more than 35 percent of which
will be left as green space.
The new development, once
it is finished, will be known as
Artists Enclave.

goff@sun-herald.com.

How to explain being held back a grade in school


LYNN REIFERT


It is the time of the school
year when some parents may
be struggling with the deci-
sion of whether or not to send
their child on to the next
grade level.
Passing a child on to the
next grade before he is ready
may result in his continuing to
fall farther and farther behind,
risking his self-esteem.
However, holding him back
while classmates move for-
ward may also have a detri-
mental effect on self-esteem.
Here is something to con-
sider: It is likely that at least 25
percent of students start
school before they are devel-
opmentally ready. Often
school readiness is not appar-
ent or clear until the child is


actually in a school setting.
One way to give the child
extra time to grow, mentally
as well as physically, is to have
them .repeat the grade.
Though this doesn't work for
all children, in many cases it
does have positive results.
It is extremely important to
protect a child's feelings in the
matter of retention. The way
adults handle this delicate
issue can have a major effect
on how the child perceives
himself for a long time.
The child must not lose
confidence in his ability to do
well in school. Lack of confi-
dence can lead to poor moti-
vation.
In his book, "I Hate
School!", Jim Grant states that
how a child is told this news,
and what clues he picks up,
about reention from his par-
ents and teacher, are what
makes the difference
between his feeling positively
or negatively about being left
back in a grade.
Grant, a former principal
and nationally known educa-
tional consultant, tells par-
ents the right way to explain
to a child that his grade level
is being "reassigned." He


advises that when you talk to
your child, there are three key
elements that must be
included in your conversa-
tion if you want your child to
feel good about remaining in
the grade:
Make it abundantly clear
to your child that you, the
parents, made a mistake. You
made an error in placing your
child in school too soon,
before he was ready to go.
Enlist your child's aid in
correcting your mistake; ask
him to assist you in remedy-
ing your error.
Make certain that you
and your spouse agree it is in
the best interest of your child
to place him at the same
grade level. Make certain that
the child'siteacher and school
principal concur in ihis deci-
sion and that the child under-'
stands he has the whole-
hearted support of his par-
ents and teacher.
You could say something
like, "Recently your dad and I
attended a parents meeting at
the school, and we got an idea
for how to make school easier
for you. We realized that your
difficulty in school is our
fault, not yours. All along,


you've been assigned to the
wrong grade. We started you
in school when you were too
young, so it wasn't your fault
that you had some trouble
doing the work. Now we
know why it was so hard for
you. We want you to help us
correct our mistake."
You can help him deal with
his peers teasing by telling
him exactly what to say. For
instance, a response to his
peers could be, "I found out
that I was accidentally put in
the wrong grade, because I
started school too early."
Retention is not always the
only answer for a child who
has trouble in school. Extra
help from qualified tutors,
over the summer months and
after school, can help a child
catch up and keep up.
If, however, the decision is
to give the child another year
in the same grade, it is crucial
that the child not feel respon-
sible. He may not have been
developmentally ready when
he reached the "magic" age
for school enrollment.

has shown that
Sthe heavier a person is, the
stronger his or her bones are. Now,
recent study shows that it is not just
how much a person weights, but what type
of weight is being carried. People with much
muscle and little fat were found to have
higher bone density than those with little
muscle and much fat, despite the fact that the
latter group weighed more. Thus, muscles are
better predictors of bone mineral content or
) density than fat mass or weight. According to
the research, people who gain a pound of
muscle will increase their bone strength three
times more than if they gain a pound of fat.
Strength training increases both muscles and
bone density.

That time of year again: Time for new shoes


J.J. Andrews
BACK OF THE PACK

Some people are cheap
just for the sake of being
cheap. Others horde their
money because there isn't
much to go around.
I'm a little bit of both, as
the worn-down treads on my
running shoes prove.
The smooth soles that
once had grooves aren't the
only indicator. A spot has
worn off on the heel area of
my left shoe. If my sock drops
\ below this spot, the shoe rubs

the back of my ankle raw to
the point of bleeding.
And then there's the blis-
ters on the top part of my toes
from rubbing against the
inside of my shoe. Nearly all
of my interior padding inside
both shoes is gone.
A weird side of me first saw
this as a manly declaration of
my toughness.
Now it just hurts. It's diffi-
cult to keep bandages from
falling off my ankle and bust-
ed blisters.
Guess it's time for new
shoes.
Maximum mileage
Depending on who you
talk to, running shoes should
be retired after logging any-
where between 300 and 500
miles. Heavier runners like
me in the 200-plus pound
category tend to beat up
shoes a little quicker, so sug-
gested replacement miles are
closer to about 300.

I am not an expert on

Store choice Try to get
fitted and discuss your shoe

most honest and informed
opinions.

shoes? That's a question you
need to answer in order to
select the best pair. Identify
how many miles a week you
plan to run, your body
weight, aggressiveness of
workouts and running sur-
faces.
Money You can spend
more than $140 for the latest
Nikes, but you don't have to.
Much like new car shopping,
look for last year's discontin-
ued models that are marked
down. If you find the right
deal, a dependable pair of
running shoes can be bought

S Cushioned -
Recommended for runners
who need maximum midsole
cushioning and minimum
medial (arch) support. These
shoes are best suited for bio-
mechanically efficient run-
ners (minimum pronation)
and midfoot or forefoot strik-
ers.
Motion-control -
Recommended for runners
who are moderate to severe
overpronators and need max-

Learning to love the benefits of science


DAVE BARRY
HUMOR COLUMNIST


EDITOR'S NOTE: (This classic
Dave Barry column was originally
published July 7, 1996.)

You don't realize it, but you
are constantly enjoying the
benefits of science.
For example, when you
turn on the radio, you take it
for granted that music will
come out. But do you ever
stop to think that this miracle
would not be possible with-
out the work of scientists?
That's right: There are tiny
scientists inside that radio,
playing instruments!
A similar principle is used
in automatic bank-teller
machines, which is why they
frequently say, "Sorry, out of
service." They're too embar-
rassed to say, "Sorry, tiny sci-
entist going to the bath-
room."
Yes, science plays a vital
role in your life, but.when it
comes to scientific knowl-
edge, there's an excellent
chance that you're a moron. I
base this statement on a
recent survey, conducted by
the National Science
Foundation. It showed that
the average American does
not understand basic scientif-
ic principles.
Naturally, the news media
reported this finding as


though it were shocking,
which is silly.
This is, after all, a nation
that has produced tourna-
ment bass fishing and the
Home Shopping Channel. We
should be shocked that the
average American still knows
how to walk erect.
But the point is that we
have a scientific illiteracy
problem in this nation, and
you could be a part of it.
To find out, see if you can
answer these three actual
questions from the National
Science Foundation survey:
1. True or False: The earli-
est human beings lived at the
same time as the dinosaurs.
2. Which travels faster, light
or sound?
3. Explain, in your own
words: What is DNA?
All finished? Now, let's look
at the correct answers:
1. FALSE. The truth is that
the dinosaurs had been dead
for over a week before the first
human came along, probably
in the form of Bob Dole. Yet
most Americans firmly
believe that humans and
dinosaurs once co-existed.
This misconception arose
from the many absurdly inac-
curate fictional depictions of
caveman life, such as the TV
cartoon show "The
Flintstones," in which the
Flintstones own a pet
dinosaur named Dino.
But paleontologists, who
can determine the age of fos-
sils with a high degree of
accuracy using a technique
called "carbon dating," have
known for many years that
"Dino" is actually another
character wearing a costume.
"We think it's Barney," the
paleontologists announced
recently, "but we can't say for
sure until we get another gov-

ernment grant."
2. To answer the light-vs.-
sound question, consider
what you observe when a
thunderstorm is approaching
and a bolt of lightning strikes.
First, you see the lightning
bolt, then you hear thunder,
then you hear a scream if the
lightning bolt has struck a
person, then you hear a loud
cheer from bystanders if the
person was George
Steinbrenner.
This tells us that light trav-
els faster than sound, because
light goes straight down from
the sky and is therefore
attracted by gravity, whereas
sound goes sideways and is
slowed down by friction with
the Earth's rotation, also
known as "peristalsis," or
"The Greenhouse Effect."
3. "DNA" is an abbreviation
for "deoxyribonucleicantidis-
establishmentarianism," a
complex string of syllables
that is found inside your body
in tiny little genes called
"chromosomes."
Biologists often refer to
DNA as "The Body's Secret
Handshake," because the
information encoded in your
DNA determines your unique
biological characteristics,
such as sex, eye color, age and
Social Security number.
There is surprisingly little dif-
ference between the DNA
found in humans and that
found in other species, such
as H. Ross Perot.
This fact has led to
research that could benefit
mankind, most notably a
series of 'experiments in
which biologists chemically
altered the DNA in fruit flies
in an effort to isolate the gene
that causes baldness.
The biologists reasoned
that fruit flies must contain


this gene, because virtually all
of them (the fruit flies) (also
the biologists) are bald.
This work took nine years
and cost $31 million, but the
Results were impressive.
When a group of fruit flies
with normal DNA were com-
pared with a group with
altered DNA, both groups
were found to consist of little
random black smears,
because the only way the
biologists could get them to
hold still was to whack them
with rolled-up copies of
Scientific American.
Nevertheless, the, biologists
believe they're on the right
track.
So those are your correct
answers.
If you did poorly, you're not
alone; the National Science
Foundation reports that only
25 percent of the people sur-
veyed, or 1 in 6, passed the
quiz. And if you think that's a
pathetic commentary on our
national intelligence, you
should see all the mail I'm
going to get in which people
will send me this column with
the words "25 percent" and "1
in 6" circled and a snotty note
informing me that this is
incorrect.
So there's no question
about it: Scientific illiteracy is
definitely a major problem in
America. And as the saying
goes: "If you're not part of the
solution, you're a newspaper
columnist." So I feel I've done
my part. And now, if you'll
excuse me, I have to shake the
radio.

Dave Barry is taking a
leave ofabsence from writing
his weekly humor column.
His classic columns appear in
the Wednesday edition of the
Venice Gondolier Sun.

,starlight,-tour:.,,Al,,exeursions,-
are led by an environmental
scientist.
Night kayaking typically
offers cooler temperatures
and calhner winds than day-
time paddling as well


as a quiet, serenity-inducing
experience on the water. In
addition, the red mangrove
forests in the backcountry
appear mysterious and en-
chanting when explored at
night.
Tours begin approximate-
ly 45 minutes before sun-
down so paddlers can view a
Keys sunset while watching
birds such as pelicans, cor-
morants and ibis flock to a
mangrove rookery for the
night. After dark, each kayak-
er is provided with a head-
lamp with an adjustable
beam to allow the viewing of
nocturnal marine life such as
lobster, shrimp and octopus
while traversing the shallow
backcountry waters.
The starlight tours last 2-
1/2 to 3 hours. No previous
kayaking experience is nec-
essary. While mosquitoes are
rarely an issue, bug spray is
provided.
Cost for the guided kayak
adventure is $40 per person.
Departure times vary de-
pending on seasonal chang-
es, and complimentary
transportation is available to
the departure site near Key
West.
Blue Planet also offers
several daytime kayak eco-
excursions as well as kayak
rentals. Specialty excursions
can be arranged for groups.

Motivational guru, author
and part-time Key West resi-
dent Pat Croce has expand-
ed his Pirate Soul Museum,
which contains nearly 500
authentic buccaneer arti-
facts, with the addition of the
pirate-themed Rum Barrel
restaurant and bar. Located
at 528 Front St. next to Pirate
Soul, the Rum Barrel evokes
the atmosphere of a tavern
from piracy's golden age
(1690 to 1730).
The restaurant opened in
February in conjunction with
Pirate Soul's debut of more
than a dozen rare nautical
artifacts including an 18th-
century spyglass and a
bronze astrolabe circa 1563.
Croce, former part owner
of the Philadelphia 76ers
basketball team and a long-
time collector of pirate arti-
facts, opened the 5,000-
square-foot, $10 million
Pirate Soul Museum early in
2005. Among its highlights
are the world's only authenti-
cated pirate treasure chest
and one of only two authen-
ticated pirate flags ,in the
world.
The adjacent Rum Barrel
is open for lunch and dinner,
and can seat approximately
200 people' in indoor and
outdoor dining areas. Its full
selection of cocktail offerings
includes more than 100 rums
and a nautical "grog." The
"get your hands dirty" menu
features pirate-themed items
like smoked turkey legs and
salmagundi stew as well as
local seafood selections,
burgers, appetizers and
hearty salads,

MAN from Page B
The scene suddenly went
from breezy to critical.
Stan went into cardiac
arrest.
Hamrick, Nutter, Dr. Mark
Whitman, and Lisa Baum-
garden, clinical educator,
leapt into action.
A check on the crowd of
bystanders witnessing the
presentation immediately re-
flected the incredibly life-like
believability of the patient
and the training session.
Smiles at the earlier banter-
ing between Hamrick and
Stan had disappeared. Some
watchers looked to others as
if wanting to ask a question
about real versus staged. Still
others leaned forward, quiet,
intense, as Whitman took
command.
Oxygen was provided.
Hamrick began a powerful
artificial respiration.
No response.
Stan was flat lining.
The crowd was actually
stunned into silence.
More commands from
Whitman, sharp, decisive.
Defibrillation.
Baumgarden quickly posi-
tioned the two handheld
paddles of the defibrillator
on Stan's chest.
"Ready. Stand back."
The electrical shock was
given.
The patient jolted in reac-
tion.
"No response," said Nutter,
checking the monitor.
"Again!" Whitman ordered.
Baumgarden: "Ready.
Stand back."
A second try.
"We have a pulse!" Nutter
announced.
Not life-like?
The witnesses broke into
applause.
When Whitman, announc-
ed, smiling, perhaps at a real-
ity that even he found sur-
prising, that "Stan has made
it," those watching laughed,
nervously it seemed. But,
what they had just witnessed
was so much an accurate
depiction of being inside an
emergency room, it was a
*ts up- bewveeni being re-
lieved and being embarrass-
ed at suddenly becoming
aware that Stan was, after all
Just Standard Man, a METI
Human Patient Simulator.
But that is just the fact
that METI promotes and the
staff at Sarasota Memorial's
Patient Safety Simulation Lab
in the Center for Advanced
Surgery intends; and it is just
that fact that patients will
profit from team response
to critical situations in a real-
istic environment, all done
in the safety of a lab scenario
in which procedures can be
honed, seconds shaved -
procedures and seconds that
will perhaps save a life.
"This is a great day for the
hospital," Lyons said. "Our
aim is to be in the top 10 in
the nation as a hospital. We
are one more level higher
today than yesterday."
Indeed, Sarasota Memorial
Healthcare Foundation has
provided a stairway closer to
the top in the form of an in-
animate computer miracle
that brushed so close to the
hem of reality, bystanders
close enough to step up and
Touch a rubberized-plastic
limb were caught in the web
,of intensity.

"Stand back!" Lisa Baumgarden, clinical educator, applies the defibrillator paddles to Stan's chest while Thomas Nutter, department head of anesthesia (far left)
watches closely, and Dr. Mark Whitman checks a side monitor. The life-like mannequin and the reality of the scenario created a tense atmosphere in the lab.


It's a whirl of concern and activity as Jennifer Hamrick, clinical educator (left) performs
artificial respiration, and Department Head of Anesthesia Thomas Nutter assists Dr.
Mark Whitman with oxygen. Back to camera, Lisa Baumgarden is preparing to retrieve
the defibrillator paddles.


The man of the hour at March 7th's scenario to highlight
the patient safety aspect of training with a Human
Patient Simulator, Stan, or Standard Man, is a ultra-
sophisticated creation of Medical Education
Technologies, Inc., of Sarasota. Several entry points
for processes requiring tube insertion can be seen.

Bye and


bye

The musical season offi-
cially comes to an enrd in Ven-
ice when the Venice Concert
Band and the Venice Symph-
ony perform their last con-
certs.
Both groups remind us of
good times. They give us a
chance to tap our toes and
walk down memory lane.
Auld Lang Syne
The Venice Concert Band
performed before 999 people
at the Venice Community
Center. The group sells out
even when the snowbirds
leave town. Their last concert
of the season showcased Phil
Hohmann on the clarinet. In
addition to his work as a Ph.D.
bio chemist, Phil enjoyed per-
forming with big bands.
He received a well-deserved
standing ovation for his "Tri-
bute to Artie Shaw," arranged
by James Christensen.
Sarah Rideout Slight
brought everyone to their
feet when she sang "It's A
Grand Night for Singing."
Bill Millner 'charmed the
audience with his stories and
enjoyed leading the group in a
terrific sing-a-long that in-
cluded "Auld Lang Syne."
Fans must find a way to
survive until the next concert
on Nov. 13.
"Happy 230th
Birthday, America"
JohannaWhitnire Fincher
and Ryan Gage wowed the
audience at the Church of the
Nazarene as they performed
with the Venice Symphony.
The duo sang music from
"The Music Man." The audi-
ence sprang to its feet even
before they finished "Time To
Say Goodbye."
For the final concert of the
year, Wesley John Schu-
macher, music director of the
Venice Symphony, chose pa-
triotic music that stirred the
soul with a birthday celebra-
tion for the U.S.A.
Wes reached new heights as
he climbed a ladder to a plat-
form that allowed him to con-
duct the musicians and the
community choir at the same
time. Their "Your A Grand Old
Flag" filled every inch,of the
church. A huge American flag
showcased behind the group
made the concert even more
grand.
Bill Millner and Wesley
John Schumacher, along with
the musicians they direct,
bring joy to everyone who
attends their concerts. Bravo.
