South County Young Adults
Center closes its doors
temporarily while it looks for
a new home.

BY GREG GILES
I.$ STAFF WRITER

After 16 months in business, one of
the few youth centers in and around
or Venice has decided to close its doors
for at least until it finds new digs.
Located on Ogden Road in Venice,
the South County Young Adults
ie ar~imals Center Inc. closed Friday, literally after
? a it held its last teen dance.
SCYAC's board of directors made
the decision after getting word it was
unable to secure two key grants to
Howard Stasser help fund its $218,000 annual budget,
according to Ed Eagen, executive
J director of the center.
Unable to meet its $6,000 monthly
rent, the board gave Eagen orders to
close up shop and look for more
affordable housing.
"The rent and utilities were much
too high. We felt like we were throwing
............... 10B money into a big pit. It was just too
................ 7A expensive," Eagen said.
2B He had high hopes for a grant from
11LG Gulf Coast Community Foundation of
................14L6 Venice, but was told it wasn't enter-
15LG training new applications.
8B To make matters worse,
...................2B Department of Juvenile Justice grants
..................10A fell through following budget cuts,
actic..........13A Eagen said.


"The board decided to regroup and
look at some other properties, and get
the center back up and running in the
future," he said.
Cracking the grant cycle
Board member Carrie Ballew
acknowledged the organization had
been having trouble breaking into the
grant cycle in Florida.
"When people ask for money,
sometimes it comes down to ... do we
contribute to an established, older
organization or a new one? ... and we


get left out in the cold," Ballew said.
SCYAC's funding woes could also
be partly due to the nature of the
organization, which serves what
Eagen called "street kids."
The center boasts 200 paid mem-
bers and another 50 sometime visi-
tors. Many of the youths are from bro-
ken or reconstituted homes and at-
tend alternative schools, Eagen said..
The center's dances sometimes
drew. 300 youths from around the
county, including areas. north of
Sarasota and south of Englewood.

South County Young Adults Center Inc. closed Friday. The organization is look-
ing for another location where it could reopen.


"Unfortunately, sometimes the
help ... doesn't come through be-
cause of the (type of) organization,"
Ballew said.
Committed
Nevertheless, SCYAC says it's com-
mitted to helping troubled youth in
South County.
"We think the center fills a niche in
this community," Eagen said when
the center opened back in January
2005. "There is a critical need for a
refuge from the influence of drugs -
a place where our young adults can be
diverted from a downward spiral of
anti-social behaviors."
"We feel we brought a lot of kids off
the streets," Eagen said. "We had a lot
of angry kids who didn't have a place
to go. We'd bring them here and give
them a chance to calm down through
anger management and other activi-
ties."
Meanwhile, Eagen is in the process
of trying to negotiate a new lease in
the Bird Bay area.
He held an auction on Saturday,
selling off donated furniture and two
of the center's most-worn pool tables.
The most expensive equipment has
been placed in storage.
"We have high hopes that our com-
munity will help us," Ballew said. "We
need to build community awareness
that SCYAC is trying to help find kids a
place where it is safe."

THIS WEEK IN VENICE HISTORY

Recall petitions being

circulated through city,

From the May 1, 1975, Venice Gondolier Sun


STAFF REPORT


Recall petitions accusing
Venice Mayor William Mc-
Cracken of misfeasance, non-
feasance and incompetence
are being circulated through-
out the city in an effort to oust
the city's highest official.
By noon Tuesday, the day
the official petitions were be-
gun, more than 100 signatures
had been obtained. It will take
about 900 to officially man-
date a special referendum.
R.L. (Bob) Anderson said
Wednesday he has workers


canvassing the streets in
search of registered voters
willing to sign the petition.
To date, 12 city employees
have attached their signa-
tures. Some feared for their
jobs, but Anderson pointed
out that no action can be
taken against employees
who sign such a petition if
they are a registered voter.
One of the major difficul-
ties in obtaining signatures
is that most people want to
discuss political factors sur-
rounding the present contro-
versy at city hall.

"It takes about a half hour
to get two names," Anderson
said.
This is the second such
petition. The first required 50
names in order to trigger the
recall mechanism. McCrack-
en was then required by law
to defend himself in 200
words or less. He simply
denied any wrongdoing.
McCracken is charged
with malfeasance in causing
the city's fire and police pen-
sion funds to be invested in
"unlawful securities" despite
state statutes to the contrary.

the money in treasury bonds
and certificates of deposit.
McCracken had been in-
structed by the state assis-
tant pension board director
to bring the investments in
line by Feb. 7, 1975. However,
the pension board still has
close to 80 percent of its
assets in bonds not approv-
ed by the statute.
Anderson said the non-
feasance charge stems from
McCracken's failure to com-
ply with the state order. If

his 2006 forecast with land-
fall odds. Southwest Florida,
he concludes, will not be hit
this year.

from landfall forecasters says

to Texas. August and Septem-
ber killers will threaten the

Commissioners reconsider 'windfall' projects


Sarasota County commissioners decide to fund
most of the items for which 1-cent surtax money
was requested.


S BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

S The projected revenue
from a 10-year 1-cent option
surtax is expected to top $40
million, and Sarasota County
Officials have devised a list of
how to best spend the money.
The list includes about
$24.5 million that will help
support 15 projects.
The 1-cent sales tax was
initially approved by a voter
referendum in 1989 and was
extended in 1997 for another
10 years, running from Sept.
1, 1999, through Aug. 30,
2009. Under this infrastrtlc-
ture surtax extension, the
- county expects its share to be.
about $310 million, money it


can use to build or improve
roads, bridges, public build-
ings and parks and recreation
facilities.
Area municipalities will
also receive a portion of the
tax revenue.
County commissioners
were in general agreement
about an allocation of
$255,000 for traffic-calming
devices, which they said
seemed contradictory to last
month's report that said the
fund had plenty of money.
"That's an awful lot of
money for that," Commis-
sioner Shannon Staub said.
"Surely the money can be
spent on a more pressing
need."


Hybridizing
The board was also
alarmed about an outlay of
$1.4 million for the county's
share of a hybrid bus pro-
gram. That amount repre-
sents about 15 percent of the
total cost for the 10 buses the
county is get-
ting through
state ard fed-
eral grants.
Public c
Works Exec- .
utive Director
Jim Harriott
said the 35-
foot buses
cost about Staub
$500,000
each, and when the county
receives them, they will create
the largest hybrid bus fleet in
the state.
County Administrator Jim
Ley said both projects are
included because, by rule,
such a surtax requires 50 per-


Regional road proj(


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


The regional transporta-
r tion planning board remains
frustrated by the lack of state
money for major area road
projects and by the board's
inability to do anything about
it.
This was at the heart of a
discussion among the mem-
bers of the Sarasota-Manatee
Metropolitan Planning Or-
ganization during their most
recent monthly meeting.
The board debated the
merits of its Transportation
Regional Incentive Project
priority list, which was sub-
mitted to the Florida De-
partment of Transportation
for funding consideration.
The list includes nine pro-
jects deemed critical to en-
hancing the regional trans-
portation system.
Tops on the list is the
widening of U.S. 301 to four
lanes from Erie Road to Fort
Hamer Road in Manatee
County. That project needs
$18 million in TRIP funds,
about the amount FDOT Dis-
trict 1 will receive each of the
next three years to be spread
out for TRIP projects in the
12-county region.
District Secretary Stanley
Cann warned the group it
could be hard to gain ap-
proval for a high-priced pro-
ject, especially when it is


competing for limited dollars
against smaller projects.
Manatee County Commis-
sioner Amy Stein said the re-
quest has dropped $9 million
since 2005 and added that
U.S. 301 is a high priority be-
cause it is an evacuation
route.
Used up
The second item on the
MPO priority list is a $10 mil-
lion request for Honore Ave-
nue, from Bee Ridge to Fruit-
ville roads.
But money available for
local road projects is limited.
MPO' Executive Director
Michael Howe said he plans
to talk to his counterparts
with the Charlotte-Punta
Gorda MPO and the Polk
County entity to negotiate
project priorities.
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Nora Patterson said the
Punta Gorda MPO used up its
fair share of money in 2005,



Consulting and design
kitchen & bath cabinets
painting & wall paper
caulking, tile & grout
doors & windows
plumbing repairs
and so much more
H *I *o -.
Remodeling & Repair


when a $10 million project
was funded through the same
program.
Manatee County Commis-
sioner Joe McClash acted on
Cann's recommendation that
the U.S. 301 project be broken
up into pieces as needed by
FDOT so it would stand a bet-
ter chance of receiving


cent of the total spent must
be spent to meet transporta-
don needs.
"It's a complexity of arith-
metic," he said, adding that
decisions had to be made to
keep that balance intact.
The board removed the
traffic-calm-
ing money
from the list
and decided
to delay a
decision on
'that portion
of the money
as well as
another $8.2'
Ley million in
water and
sewer line projects that also
made the board uncomfort-
able.
More money
Commissioners Jon Thax-
ton and Nora Patterson said
tSley were both confused


about a $4.1 million item that
would cover 25 percent of the
costs for the neighborhood
water line extension program
in Phillippi Creek, Nokomis
and Bay Point.
They were also concerned
about a $4.1 million outlay for
the Phillippi Creek Septic Sys-
tem Replacement Program.
Patterson said that an
unfunded $4 million water
line program to cover the
whole cost for the Phillippi
Creek area was unfair, and
paying for the entire septic
tank replacement was unfair,.
as well.
The board was told the
money for the water lines in
Phillippi Creek would help
952 homes, while the septic
tank program will bring sewer
lines to 15,384 homes.
Commissioners ultimately
decided to have county staff
report back on other ways to
use the water line and septic


bcts debated


money.
S MPO Chair and Palmetto
Mayor Larry Bustle said the
structure of the state funding
program is forcing everyone
to shape their programs dif-
ferently.
STo help better understand
the money game, FDOT
Secretary Denver Sutler Jr.


will be appearing before the
MPO board during its June 26
meeting at the Manatee Civic
Center.
Bustle said it isan oppor-
tunity to hear the secretary's
point of view about how
FDOT works.

tank money.
The board also asked the
staff to look into using the
traffic-calming money to
potentially buy bus shelters.
The commissioners did
agree to spend $2.3 million to
help fix the Beach Road
drainage problem, which
puts stormwater runoff di-
rectly onto Siesta Key Beach,
forcing it to close after heavy
rain events.
They also added $5 million
for the Rails to Trails program.
Among the other projects
receiving extra money from
the surtax include:. East
Dearborn Street, Fruitville
Road, Colonia Lane, Gulf
Gate Library replacement,
sidewalks, traffic signals and
other road and building pro-
jects.

vvEducationl Ii lU budget coming into fcu




Education budget coming into focus


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Gov. Jeb Bush on Thursday
signed the FY 2006-2007 state
budget, allocating record
funding for Florida's educa-
tion.
The budget allocates $23
billion for K-20 education, an
increase of more than 14 per-
cent compared to the current
fiscal year.
This year's funding includes
an operating budget of $19.1
billion, and a fixed capital-
outlay budget of $3.9 billion,
which includes more than
$1.1 billion for facilities to re-
duce class sizes.
Sarasota County School Dis-
trict finance administrators are
still studying the budget, trying
to decipher which program
monies it is eligible for. The


district will announce a draft
budget for the next school
year on June 18.
Here's what they already
know.
Sarasota County.will re-
ceive an increase of about
$22 million from the state's
funding formula. Funding in
the Florida Education Finance
Program increased by 10.76
percent to provide a total of
$18.8 billion statewide. Fund-
ing per student is $7,004, an
increase of $542, or nearly 9
percent, during the current
year.
Part of the increase is al-
ready earmarked. The Special
Teachers Are Rewarded Plan
will recognize and reward
outstanding teachers in Flor-
ida through pay bonuses.
Described in proviso lan-
guage, $147.5 million is in-


cluded for this program in the
FEFP for school districts.
statewide.
Sizing down
Funding to address the
mandates of the class-size
amendment increased by
$644 million statewide for a
total of $2.2 billion in operat-
ing funds. This is a 43 percent
increase over the current year.
Class-size monies for Sara-
sota County will increase
from $23.8 million this year
to $34.4 million next year,
estimates Al Weidner, finance
director for Sarasota County
Schools.
The additional $10.6 mil-
lion is supposed to be used for
salaries and benefits for addi-
tional teachers. In districts
like Sarasota where schools
have already met mandated


class sizes, however, the ad-
ditional funds may be used
to pay for the equivalent of a
cost-of-living salary increase
for teachers already in place.
Another $9 million of the
$22 million increase in per
student funding will be eaten
up by a mandatory increase
in employee retirement costs.
Sarasota County School Dis-
trict now spends $17.7 million
on retirement for its staff.
That is estimated to go up to
$26.7 million next year.
Additional capital budget
funds are also expected for
Sarasota County. They, too,
come with strings attached.
Administrators are await-
ing further explanation from
the Florida Department of
Education on just how much
is available and how the
monies can be spent.


Venice firefighter contract talks begin


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


City Manager Marty Black
hopes no fires spring up over
Venice's latest set of union
contract talks. The city open-
ed negotiations Tuesday with
members of the International
Association of Firefighters,
which represents union
members of Venice Fire
Department. Both the city
and union hope to finalize a
new deal before the existing
contract expires Oct. 1.
Black hopes negotiations
will go more smoothly than
those last year with the city's
other two major unions,
which forced employees to
work under expired contracts
for a year or longer.


'From what I can tell, they
seem very optimistic entering
negotiations," Black said.
Members of the Fraternal
Order of Police worked under
an expired contract for more
than a year, while workers
with the American Federation
of State, County and Muni-
cipal Employees basically
every city employee not in
law enforcement, firefighting
or management were forc-
ed to wait during FOP talks.
Pay raises, health insur-
ance costs and salary
amounts were the major is-
sues in both cases.
Both contracts expired in
October 2004. FOP finally
agreed to a three-year deal
last December (it expires Oc-
tober 2007) and AFSCME a


one-year deal plus three years
(it expires October 2008).
'Health'-y agreement
Health insurance was a
major obstacle because it
used to be free to all city
employees. AFSCME was the
group that finally broke the
negotiating log-jam by de-
vising a pro-rated scale for
contributions. Their sugges-
tion wound up becoming
the blueprint for the city.
The firefighters union has
already agreed to the health
insurance rates, so Black ex-
pects salaryamounts and pay
steps to be the major issues.
City management is at-
tempting to increase the
number of years required to
reach top-out salaries. Under


the current firefighter con-
tract, an employee reaches
maximum salary in 4.5 years,
and management wants that
to be eight years.
Salary amounts also could
be an issue. Entry-level fire-
medics make $27,485. per
year and top out at $46,639,
according to the city's salary
schedule.
As of October 2006, the
new FOP contract pays an
entry-level officer $37,000
and tops out at $55,750 by
his or her sixth year.
The AFSCME contract
includes workers at the'
wastewater plant, solid waste,
public parks, secretaries and
others, so no direct salary
comparison can be made
with FOP or IAE


"We haven't yet seen a cal-
culation as to what that
would mean," Weidner said.
"We think we may be getting
$14 million for new con-
struction."
"If so, that will be ear-
marked for the next middle
school in North Port, because
the money has to be spent on
new classroom construction
associated with the class-size
amendment."
Anxiously awaiting
Last month the district
announced next school year's
operating budget is expected
to grow from $376 million to
$394 million.
Despite the funding in-
crease, the district is facing
what it calls a "budget adjust-
ment" due to slower-than-
expected growth in enroll-
ment.
The district said it found
itself overstaffed and estimat-
ed nearly 200 employees -
both teachers and support
staff would need to be
transferred from schools that
are overstaffed to schools


with growing enrollments,
mostly in North Port.
The district said it's trying
its best to make sure no
employee is laid off, counting
on normal job actions like
retirements, resignations and
transfers to make the adjust-
ment.
But there are concerns a
significant number of teacher
aides may have to be cut.
Earlier this year the district
announced a temporary hir-
ing suspension brought on
by lower-than-expected en-
rollment. Over-projections
meant the district had to
repay nearly $6 million it
received.
The Sarasota County
School Board has scheduled
a workshop on June 6 to
address the issue. That's
when the district is expected
to release its official list of
job openings for current,
employees and those who
were surplused to "bid" on.
Staff with the most seniority
will get first shot at openings.
It's also when the public
will learn if layoffs are in store.

Beach renourishment


money being stretched


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


Bed-tax money for beach
renourishment is in high de-
mand, and several projects
could dip into a pot of money
that has been building during
the past few years.
The Tourist Development
Council recently recom-
mended that Sarasota
County commissioners ap-
prove the release of money
for a planned sand replace-
ment program on south
Siesta Key.
This would help ease the
erosion that has taken two
homes in the past two years
near the Turtle Beach.
The project has been de-


played more than a year be-
cause of permitting delays
and conflicts with turtle nest-
ing season.
The entire project will cost
$11.4 million, with some of
the county's tourist tax cover-
ing about half of the total.
The state share is about
$3.2 million and could be
expanded by as much as
$650,000 as the county adds
more beach space with the
recent purchase of a travel-
trailer park north of Turtle
Beach. About $2 million
would be paid by residents
who live on the key and
would benefit directly from
the renourishment.
County Coastal Resources
Manager Laird Wreford, said


there will be requests for
beach renourishment money
from Sarasota and Venice
within the next two years,
totaling up to $1 million. A
Manasota Key project is also
being considered, but that
project is not ready.
With the expenditure for
the south Siesta Key project,
there will be $6.6 million
available for renourishment
projects.
The county may use
some of this money to carve
through Midnight Pass, but
that process has not been
approved and cost estimates
vary widely.

Joint bus system possible


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

A recent agreement to link
the Longboat Key trolley on
the south end of the island
with the existifig bus services
at the north end could serve
as the next step in merging
the bus systems of Sarasota
and Manatee counties.
The idea was broached
during the recent Sarasota-
Manatee Metropolitan Plan-
ning Organization meeting,
when Sarasota County Com-
missioner Nora Patterson
said there needs to be a Public
Transportation Task Force to
explore the idea of linking the
Sarasota County Area Transit
with the Manatee County
Area Transit systems.
She cited the new Long-
boat Key agreement .and the


existing links on U.S. 41, U.S.
301, University Parkway and
at Sarasota-Bradenton Iriter-
national Airport as her rea-
sons for the merger.
"It seems like we have
looked at this before and
never went anywhere, I think
it needs to have a closer ex-
amination," Patterson said.
With SCAT looking to in-
crease transportation serv-
ices, the time could be right
to link the two systems,
especially as the two expand
and the area becomes even
more interconnected.
Patterson views it as be-
coming a joint transportation
authority, which would in-
crease the buying power and
give the bus system more
services for the limited dollars
that are available.
"I think it is a natural,"


Patterson said.
Other MPO members said
they liked the idea of looking
into a merger, but Manatee
County has rebuffed the idea
in the past and none of the
Manatee County commis-
sioners commented on the
subject.
The idea spun off a discus-
sion about the many regional
transportation authorities
that focus on interstate work
in Tampa Bay and Fort Myers.
The board is split on what
it should do about joining the
two systems, since Sarasota
County has an allegiance to
the Southwest Florida Ex-
pressway Authority, and Man-
atee County has an allegiance
to Tampa Bay.

Fertilizer changes draw high-profile interest


Best management practices by everyone would
go a long way to reducing the amount
of fertilizer that runs off into the waterways.


BY BOB REDDY.
STAFF WRITER

There is no clear evidence
of what causes red-tide out-
breaks, but scientists agree
that fertilizer runoff is pro-
bably a contributing fac-
tor.
Jack Merriam, Sarasota
County water quality manag-
er, said stormwater runoff is
a soup, but the biggest prob-
lem in area waters is nitrogen,
which is a leading cause for
red-tide blooms.
Merriam said the county
is looking to follow a com-
prehensive ordinance from
St. Johns County. That ordi-
nance :helped clean major
,wterways by licensing lawn
care maintenance compa-
nies and addressing other
issues, such as septic tank
quality.
The idea of creating a
similar ordinance in Sarasota
County came before the
commissioners May 23.
The board approved a
general plan to use a blend
of regulation, education and
training, research and demion-
stration to develop a commu-
nity solution to curb pollution
caused by fertilizer runoff.
Eric Santalla, a statewide
ergonomist for TrueGreen
ChemLawn, said she hopes
the county doesn't focus only
on fertilizers and regulating
companies, but rather should
develop a model ordinance
that concerns the average
person.
Mary Compton, of Man-
asota 88, said she wants the
county to have a stronger,
more effective ordinance.
"What we apply to our
lawns ultimately effects our
water," she argued.
Minimize management
Stuart DeCew, red-tide
campaign coordinator for the
Sierra Club Florida Chapter,
said the fertilizer industry
needs to adapt to the needs
of Sarasota County and not
to bully the county into de-
veloping ineffective protec-
tive measures.
Kip Alexander, the county
horticulturist, said the county
uses the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection's
"best management" practices,
which means only 15 percent
of the county-maintained
land needs fertilizer. That is
reserved for athletic fields,
which are the exception.
Alexander said the man-
agement practices include
knowing whether fertilizer is
actually needed, knowing
where to put it, when to ap-
ply it and what type of fer-
tilizer to apply.
The key lesson to learn is
to "stay away from water and
land surfaces (driveways),
and don't overmanage your
landscape."
If everyone were to follow
these rules, Alexander argu-
ed, it would make a big differ-
ence in the amount of fertiliz-


er reaching the bays.
A push needed.
Commissioner Paul Mer-
cier said he is concerned
about the expectation from
any regulations.


"There should be a total
education process for the en-
tire community," he said.
"This is more than about
red tide. It's a quality of life
issue."
Commissioner Shannon
Staub said the the county
should concentrate on what
will deliver the most thor-
ough and quickest results.
Staub said she views lawns


maintenance companies as
the most logical place to
start.
"They won't change with-
out some push," Staub said.
"It would have a real im-
pact."
The board also empha-
sized that-the education
aspect of the plan needs to
focus on homeowners
groups, especially the larger


ones.
Merriam said he wants
to work with neighboring
counties to make this effort
more effective.
"We share the bays with
Manatee and Charlotte
counties. Working together,
we could make a greater
impact," Merriam said.
Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton received board support


to have staff focus on reg-
ulating the use of quick-
release fertilizers during the
rainy season and the use of
any fertilizers near water-
ways.
The board asked for regu-
lar updates on the progress
of establishing a,formal ordi-
nance and guidelines.

Bird rookery restoration first spoil island project


The U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers created spoil
islands in Southwest
Florida bays. Projects
to restore damaged
ecosystems have been
slowed by the lack of
funds.

BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

Permit applications for a
long-stalled Bird Colony Is-
lands restoration project in
Robarts Bay just south of the
Siesta Drive Bridge have been
submitted to federal and state
agencies by Sarasota County
environmental officials who
have pursued repairs for
almost a decade.
"We are in the process of
writing specifications for a bid
package to contractors," said


Curtis Smith, a natural re-
sources project manager.
"There is enough money avail-
able to go forward with this.
Our last construction estimate
was about $500,000."
The Bird Colony Islands
are four small mangrove
islands located immediately
east of the IntracoastalWater-
way and north of Skiers' Is-
land. They constitute -one of
the most significant bird nest-
ing colony sites along Flor-
ida's west coast.
Because of their proximity
to the waterway, the islands
have been damaged by large
boat wakes. When the water-
way was dredged through
Sarasota Bay and Little
Sarasota Bay in the 1960s, it
increased both the number
and size of boats that pass
near the islands.
The proposed project
would install a 1,200-foot
breakwater of limestone
boulders just west of the


islands and wrap it around
both the north and south
ends. It would break up dam-
aging waves from boat wakes
before they wash across the
islands.
'About 1.6 acres of turtle
grass would be impacted and
we'll mitigate for that," Smith
said. "The breakwater will
help create a quiet, shallow
area east of the islands for sea
grasses to expand. Species
such as oysters should be
attracted by the exchange of
water through the rocks."
The National Audubon
Society manages the rookery
as part of its Florida Coastal
Islands Sanctuaries system,
and lists the brown pelican,
snowy egret, little blue heron,
tri-colored heron, American
oystercatcher, reddish egret,
double-crested cormorant,
Great egret, cattle egret and
black-crowned night heron
among the inhabitants.
Several are state-listed


species of concern. Aerial
photographs of the islands
taken in 1948 and 2002 show
a marked difference in both
the islands' shape, and size.
Experts indicate they are
experiencing marked degra-
dation from erosion and the
loss of mangrove canopy.
While the county recently
failed to obtain a U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service grant to
help pay for the project, it has
funding commitments from
the Southwest Florida Water
Management District, Sara-
sota Bay Estuary Program and
the Jacksonville .Community
Foundation.
Work on a series of local
spoil island restoration pro-
jects was shelved in 1999
when Siesta Key residents
and others protested plans
for Big Edwards Island, Little
Edwards Island and Skiers
Island because they would
have included the removal of
Australian pine trees.


PLAY from PagelA


into the Venice Gondolier Sun
office. American Legion
Commander Greg Putman
apologized and blamed the
situation on "miscommuni-
cation."
"It was a communication
problem, and I'll take respon-
sibility for that," Putman said.
"I was blindsided when (VHS)
came, because I thought it
was already taken care of."
Putman called VHS the
week before the event and
canceled, saying the band
was not needed. Case doesn't
know how many years in a
row the band has performed
at the Memorial Day ceremo-
ny, but this would have been
his fifth in five years at VHS.
Several days after the
phone call, Case received a
letter from Purman asking the
band to perform. The VHS
director thought the Amer-
ican Legion members had
changed their minds.
Turns out they hadn't.
'Un'-seajed
Case accepts the commu-
nication breakdown as some-


"The crux of the mat-
ter is, we're the only
high school in Venice.
... Why are you turn-
ing the kids away?"

band director



thing that just happens.
However, excluding the local
high school in favor of one
that's 20 miles away is what is
bothering students and vol-
unteers with the band.
"The crux of the matter is,
we're the only high school in
Venite," Case said. "We've
been doing this for at least
five years, maybe longer. Why
are you turning the kids
away? ... I have a feeling some
people out there were won-
dering the same thing.
"The kids were disappoint-
ed they came out on their


vacation and then told to go
home. I don't think they liked
that very much."
Putman explained that he
wanted a marching band in
the style of a drum and bugle
.corps, like North Port High
School has.
He also was attempting to
keep the ceremony next to
Venice Beach short because
the grand opening of the
American Legion's new build-
ing on East Venice Avenue
was immediately afterward.
Venice's band would have
required chairs to be set up by
American Legion members,
but NPHS band members
could stand.
'My error'
Putman made clear that
VHS band "was not turned
away" and was invited to stay
and play, even though there
was no place for the band to
set up.
"They did ask us if we
wanted to play, and I said,
'No, that's OK,' Case said.
Putman did not see why
inviting North Port's band

Retention ponds worth negotiating


he latest drought has spurred lots of
debate and discussion about future
water resources. And, when you talk
about water resources, the idea of retention
ponds is certain to surface.
Retention ponds, put simply, are man-
made holes in the ground where rainwater or
water from other sources such as the
Peace River can be stored. The use of
retention ponds is also a critical and required
element in development.
Without the state requirement that reten-
tion ponds must accompany each big-box
structure, each condominium project and
each housing development, Florida's cities
would flood much more often. That's
because when you build over the top of what
was once soil, the water has no place to go.


When it runs off roofs or asphalt, it must be
channeled into retention ponds, or flash
floods are a real threat.
There are critics of using retention ponds
as water source. They argue too much of the
water evaporates, and that getting water
from the ponds to users can be costly.
We agree with those two concerns. Still,
the idea of using retention ponds as a water
source has its positive points.
Don Ross, president and CEO of Earth
Balance, is close to the debate on retention
ponds and well versed in environmental
concerns surrounding both water and phos-
phate. His company builds retention ponds
in Florida and elsewhere.
Ross says the idea of using retention
ponds is that they would help stabilize the


flow of rivers used as water sources. By
releasing water from retention ponds back
into the river during dry months or droughts,
the water flow would always be adequate.
During the wetter summer months, water
can be pumped into the retention ponds for
storage.
Retention ponds work much better in the
south end of Florida than further north
because of the makeup of the land..Northern
Florida and more northerly states have a
somewhat leaky system of soil layers. In
South Florida, the water table is higher, and
water does not seep through to aquifers as
easily.
Tampa just completed a 2-square-mile
reservoir that is more than 40 feet deep. Huge
embankments surround that holding area -


raising the question of whether they possess
a risk if the embankments should be com-
promised.
"There is always some concern of them
breaking, but they are highly engineered struc-
tures," Ross said. He said there was no real com-
parison to the Tampa reservoir and the dikes
that supposedly protected New Orleans from
flooding before Hurricane Katrina.
"At New Orleans, and around Lake
Okeechobee, the dirt was just.piled up," Ross
said. Newer reservoirs have pervious layers,
plastic sheets and culverts to control the flow
of water.
It is debatable whether retention ponds
are an answer to droughts. Still, there is some
value in them certainly enough to keep
them in the equation.


A plan for North


Venice isn't enough

DICK WINDGASSEN
Gt m'


In a guest column, Venice
City Manager M\ arty Black ad -
dressed growing citizen colm-
plaints that Venice lacked a
plan for growth in the newly
annexed lands near the 1-75
intersection of Laurel Road.
As an 11-year retiree resi-
dent, I have a different per-
spective.
The city manager repeat-
edly used the expression "the
city," as if Venice is some
manufacturing plant for
meeting demand for build-
ings and services.
Former. City Manager
George Hunt tried to calm
residents' concerns about
growth by noting that Venice's
growth in the 1990s was only
about 1.5 percent per year,
even as he was making plans
for much faster growth. But
compounded, 1.5 percent
growth yields 35 percent
growth in 20 years.
City reports of 10-20 years
ago repeatedly express con-
cerns about "build-out," the
exhaustion of land in the city
for development. The con-
cept of starting to make
Venice better, not bigger, was
not considered a viable
option.
Black never notes that the
expected doubling of the
city's population in the next
15 years represents a 5-per-
cent growth rate even North
Port would admire. Nor has
Black discussed the future of
growth after the newly an-
nexed territories are filled, but
the appetites of growth spe-
cial interests still remain
unsatisfied.
Venice islanders beware.
Black says the city's new
growth plan started 30 years
ago when the city wanted to
relocate its sewage plant on
the beach to east of 1-75 on
Laurel Road. He failed to
explain why having the plant
there required the city to
annex some 4 square miles of
county land surrounding the
plant.
What, in fact, would be the
problem of having our sew-
age plant in the county? We
are all well aware that most
county offices are located
within the city limits of the
city of Sarasota, without
problem.
Black implies that the resi-
dents of Venice endorsed the
growth plan. He forgets that


30 years ago, when most resi-
dents lived on the island, vig-
orous citizen opposition to
growth forced a moratorium
on tall buildings.
Black also failed to note
that residents submitted a
petition signed by 2,000 vot-
ers to permit a referendum
vote to cancel annexation of
the Henry Ranch property,
now the Venetian Golf & River
Club, or that the city success-
fully fought its citizens' peti-
tion in two costly court chal-
lenges.
Cirv management desper-
a'tel wanted 'tlie Henry
Ranch lands as its first major
annexation east of 1-75. The
county opposed the annexa-
tion.
Developer WCI realized
this conflict and knew it had a
powerful bargaining position.
It now has a single-gated
piece of land along Laurel
Road that permanently
blocks flow of north-south
traffic for 1.5 miles.
Black's claimed benefits
from the annexation are exag-
gerated. The development
does indeed contain 80 acres
of conservation area, but it is
somewhat less accessible to
Venice residents than, say,
federal lands surrounding
Point Barrow, Alaska.
WCI did pay for paving of a
stretch of Laurel Road, but
only the section to the devel-
opment's single' entrance,
because WCI knew that buy-
ers of $300,000 homes would
dislike a rutted, dirt road. The
final section of Laurel Road
leading to the 10-acre park
parcel WCI gave the city by
the Myakaa River remains
unpaved.
The city did negotiate $1
million dollars in extra fees,
but considering that the 2,500
inhabitants increased the city
population by one-eighth,
that million dollars would not
even begin to cover a propor-
tionate' share of public infra-
structure, and private infra-
structure such as churches.,
Did Venice use its own
strong position to negotiate a
good deal? Consider: Use of
the name "Venice" at VGRC
conjures up in buyers' minds
the ambiance of "The City on
the Gulf," whereas the devel-
opment is a former ranch sit-
uated by 1-75, 6 miles from
the gulf.
By comparison, the com-
petitive Pelican Pointe Golf &
Country Club is 2 miles from
the gulf and 3 miles from
downtown Venice.
Black also claims city
development by 1-75 protects
Laurel Road. Yet almost all of
Laurel Road, including the
section through Nokomis to
the gulf, will remain in the
county.
A glance at a map will

Everything is affordable if pay is fair
Everything is affordable if pay is fair


Editor:
I am new to Southwest Florida and have found affordable
housing to be a big topic of discussion. There is also the issue
of what it costs to clothe and feed families here. Housing, food,
clothing and dining out all cost about the same as they do any-
where else in the good old United States of America.
I don't necessarily see affordable housing or the cost of liv-
ing as the issue. It is the pay workers in Florida receive. Based
on the wages paid in Southwest Florida,'I can only imagine
how much money employers are raking in. The wages employ-
ees receive in Southwest Florida are degrading and demoraliz-
ing.
Employers expect to hire experienced people with extensive
knowledge and skills; however, they are not willing to pay for
that knowledge and skill.
The Midwest has experienced the slowest housing-cost
growth rate, yet the employees there are paid reasonable
wages. They receive pay for the knowledge and skills they bring
to the job. This shows their employers value them and then
they will start performing.
I challenge the employers of Southwest Florida to do the
same: Start paying people what they are worth.

Think you're not
paying anyone-
else's tax bill?
Editor:.
Homeowners are looking
for more breaks on taxes,
even to pass it onto their next
home. Last October Save Our
Homes wanted to cap the
homeowners' insurance
increases, too.
I am a retired.homeowner
myself. But I am paying the
other guy's taxes and insur-
ance now, too. We are missing
a very important result of the
Save Our Homes amend-
ment.
Local governments must
maintain their tax bases. So,
commercial property taxes
rose more than 100 percent in
the last three years. Who pays
for it? We all do.
Everything costs more:
haircuts, day care, repairs,
tires, clothing, groceries,
rents, coffee, burgers, videos,
sundries, etc.


Guess what else? Their
insurance is increasing faster
than homeowners' is. Who
pays for it? We all do. Renters
(commercial and residential)
pay three to five. times more
than a homeowner right now
just for taxes and insurance.
Small businesses cannot
sustain the burden of such
high taxes and insurance. The
big chain stores and develop-
ers can negotiate tax incen-
tives. The little guy gets noth-
ing.
The little guy now borrows
$6,000-$10,000 a year to pay
the taxes and insurance on
one property. Having to bor-
row to pay the rapid rise of
these expenses will crush
small businesses. "Survival of
the fittest" has taken on a new
meaning.
Tallahassee ignores this
result of Save Our Homes.
They do not listen to the com-
mercial property owners.
You would think that it is a


national phenomer

Better than
the alternative
Editor:
Answer to "Disgusted with
Bush"
What a tirade.
It's people like her that
help to make the world what
it is today. Is she aware of
what's going on in the world?
Maybe she's mad that Bush
became president, but better
him than the alternative.
I do have a suggestion for
her. Go to the library and pick
up a book titled "Menace in
Europe: Why the Continent's
Crisis is America's too," by
Claire Beriniski. This may
hopefully give her some in-
sight to what's going on in the

Shark fishermen are the
real hammerheads
Editor:
Given the desperate plight
of sharks worldwide, the story
of the Florida man who re-
cently killed a "record-break-
ing" hammerhead should
have run on the obituary
page.
Hammerheads are fasci-
nating and complex animals.
They are one of the most
highly evolved types of shark.
The wide separation of the
eyes gives superior vision,
and the frontal lobe between
their eyes is spanned by sen-
sory organs that detect
changes in pressure and elec-
trical fields.
There are few "sporting"


events more blatantly testos-
terone-driven than trawling
for sharks. Those who catch
these animals take unabash-
ed pride in the perceived
bravery it takes to bait a hook
and fake out a fish.
Readers who think these
amazing animals should be
protected instead of perse-
cuted should visit Fishing

Prepare now for new war on killer bees


.fr





BOB BOWDEN
GUEST COLUMNIST


Last year, you read in your
Gondolier Sun about killer
bees settling in Florida. The
first Florida victim of the terri-
fyingAfrican bees was a horse
grazing in a pasture near
LaBelle. Stung to death.
Since then, a dog in Ven-
ice was attacked and killed
by the dreaded bees, which
have killed more than 1,000
people on this continent
and more than 100,000 ani-
mals. Another dog was
killed in Miami not long
ago.
Clearly, we need to do
something to rid the state of
these winged terrorists. And,
fortunately, now is a perfect
time for bureaucracy to leap
into action.
Now is the time when the
"War on Canker" has been
lost and hordes of state em-
ployees, lacking citrus trees to


uproot and burn, are just sit-
ting around. What they need
is a new war.
Wars rally people and fur-
ther enrich the rich. Wars are,
therefore, good. So, for the
good of us all, let's declare a
"War on Killer Bees."
Given what we learned in
the "War on Canker," we
know what we must do.
First, we find a scientist
who can tell us what level of
destruction we need to get in
front of the killer bees, to get
our arms around the bees, so
to state-speak. Scientists nev-
er disagree, of course, so this
man's word becomes our
mantra. It is, after all, "sci-
ence."
Let's say he tells us we
can wipe out killer bees by.
destroying each colony and
all likely locations within 8
miles. Our battle plan is set.
Initially, we send battalions
of former canker inspectors
into residential back yards,
looking for killer bees. They'll
find some. Bet on it. Whis-
pering TV reporters will fol-
low the search-and-destroy
missions.
Now, the enemy must die.
Given their daylight work-'
aholic habits, the bees must
be attacked in darkness by
heavily shielded SWAT troops
using flamethrowers and
wearing night-vision goggles.


Unfortunately, I have a bee
colony in a chimney wall now,
so my house is doomed.
So is every building within
8 miles of me.
We'll also need large quar-
antine zones where children
can't go out to play for the
next two years.
Hey, sometimes you have
to destroy the village to save
it. When bee-free homeown-
ers protest you just know
some will the state will say
it's following the "best sci-
ence."
Time is of the essence.
Right now, Florida Agriculture
Commissioner Charles Bron-
son needs to appoint a "killer
bee czar" and 'seek guaran-
teed funding of $200 billion to
repay property owners for the
forthcoming inferno that
destroys about 10 percent of
the state's buildings.
Can we do any less? Killer
bees are a serious problem,
particularly for the beekeep-,
ing industry. What should we
do?
Well, maybe we should
put the problem in perspec-
tive. Maybe we should leave
control measures up to
affected individuals. Maybe,
just maybe, we should learn
to live with this enemy.
Think we'll do that? Nah.
War is good. And czar knows
best.


LET 'EM HAVE IT! .. T ^ HOU :
ANNUIALn y f. ""'.t';m'.- ." i,

Now can you fix up the fountain?


New view. I can't believe that city council has spent mions
on the improvements at the Venice Community Center, yet the
tacky fountain in the front has no landscaping whatsoever. We
need to make the appearance as you drive up to the center a
nicer view.


Play by the rules. It seems
the immigrants from scores of
countries who come to
America are assimilating into
the American culture, learn-
ing English and not making
us speak their language.
However, the Spanish-speak-
ing immigrants, or illegals, are
coming in and making us
speak their language when
you go to banks and restau-
rants, menus and such. What
about all the disease they're
bringing in with the tubercu-
losis, polio? They're coming
in, they're not getting vacci-
nated. I don't think it's an
immigrant issue, I think it's a
Hispanic issue and they
should play by the rules, the
laws, and not be illegal.
Editor's Note: Not allillegal
immigrants are Hispanic, and
not all Hispanics are illegal
immigrants.
For what purpose? I read
Bob Vedder's column last
week and I have a question.


How long has he lived in
Venice and does he have a
picture to publish of what the
airport looked like after World
War II? I have lived here for 38
years and when we moved,
here the airport was only a
stop on the road. So who
developed it and for what
purpose? As written before,
why should the people of
Venice have to put up with an
airport and boat marina for a
few hundred wealthy people
with expensive hobbies? Can
you just see boats being
towed. through Venice on
their way to the marina out at
the airport?
Better to have a marina at
Fisherman's Wharf at the
beginning of town, rather
than at the end of town. If we
have to have another big
marina in the first place, it
should be before coming into
town, not after.
I also resent people saying
people shouldn't have built


houses near the airport in the
first place. How about all the
places being built around
today on every inch of land
possible to anybody's incon-
venience? The people of
Venice should have a vote
since it affects all of us, not

is so lucky to have people like
Sue Lang and Herb Levine
looking out for the rest of us.
Too bad they can't get the
opportunity to run for office.
Maybe then there would be
more consideration given to
all the population in Venice,
rather than what is being
given to these days.
Lower scores. The people
of Venice should be looking at
the current third-grade FCAT
scores that were just released.
Our Venice Elementary
School was one of two schools
in the entire district that has
gone down over the past two
years. It is also the No. 1
school for the biggest down-
turn in scores in the past two
years. What's happening at
our local school that our
scores are the lowest in the
county? Somebody should be
looking into that.

Reader alert to Las Vegas scam


BY KEN KLEINLEIN
COLUMNIST


Englewood resident Carol
Gregory received two mail-
ings from the "LasVegas, Nev.,
Actionable Award Program,
EO. Box 98855, Las Vegas, NV
89193."
She became suspicious
and forwarded the docu-
ments to me.
Both indicate that she is on
a short list along with three
other individuals to share in
the distribution of a
$3,646,000 cash prize oppor-
tunity. The other persons list-
ed were guaranteed a share of
amounts ranging from
$4,602,599 to $4,887,754.
Mrs. Gregory was directed
to respond immediately by
signing an enclosed receipt
form and remitting a $20 doc--
ument fee in a prepaid priori-


ty envelope..
At the top of the form is the
statement, "YOU ARE OFFI-
CIALLY SWORN TO SECRE-
CY, ABSOLUTELY CONFI-
DENTIAL." That statement
alone should make anyone
hesitate to participate in this
apparent con game.
My investigation resulted
in dead ends in every area
that I searched.
There were, of course, no
contact telephone numbers
anywhere on either of the
documents.
'This gang might just be
looking for a $20 response

they receive any cash, per-
sonal information and a

her name became available

times in the past by different
individuals and groups that
may have been scams or just
sales pitches.
Folks, be advised that

prize, send in a warranty
information card when pur-
chasing a product, or give

you will be placed on a list.

you something, or in some
cases it falls into the hands of

Ann Marie Stenhouse of
Foxwood contacted me to say
she had foiled a scam that vic-
timized numerous people in
and around our area.
I did a column a while back
addressing individuals selling
frozen meat door to door. The
meat is either not what they
claim it to be, is grossly over-
priced or is spoiled meat that
has been re-frozen. Very dan-
gerous!
Ann Marie says she
observed an unmarked red
pickup truck selling frozen
meat in her development.
She told anyone who had
bought the meat to stop pay-
ment on their checks. When
the rieat thawed out it was
found to be spoiled. '

VHS athletes

good sports, too

It's not if you win or lose,
but how you play the game.
Well, Venice High likes to
have its cake and eat it, too.
Venice High is known
statewide for its exceptional
athletic programs. The Indi-
ans are perennial state pow-
ers in football, baseball,
wrestling, volleyball and soft-

Venice athletes good, they are
also the best sports. That's as
in good sportsmanship.
Venice is one of six reci-
pients of the Florida High
School Athletic Association's
Fred E. Rozelle Award.
There are statewide win-
ners in each of the six classes.
Venice was winner in Class
5A.
The Rozelle Award, which
began ih the 1990-91 school
year, recognizes schools
whose athletes best exemplify
sportsmanship during the
course of the sports year
running from late summer,
through fall and winter, and
into spring.
Schools are judged on the
behavior of its coaches, play-
ers and spectators.
Criteria includes reports by
officials and other representa-
tives in the sports conmmuunit.
Venriie High's athletic de-
partment will receive a
plaque and $2,500 for win-
ning the award.
The award is named for
FHSAA commissioner emeri-
tus Fred Rozelle, who served
as secretary and commis-
sioner from 1980-91.
The FHSAA is the govern-
ing body for interscholastic
athletic competition in Flor-
ida. It has a membership of
more than 700 middle, junior

atWCU.
"Stackhouse" batted .340

Golfers "/7ff
are often
advised to
Shorten their back
swings in the interest of reducing
Twisting of the back and spine. Doing
so reduces the potential for back
problems. However, many golf experts believe
That a shorter back swing will produce less
power, resulting in shorter drives. But they may
also note that a compact swing may allow more
precise placement of the ball. For the ordinary
golfer, the potential increase in accuracy may
more than compensate for the loss of distance. Of
more immediate concern to the chiropractor is the
noticeable increase in shoulder muscle activation
that seems to come with a short swing. If this
compensatory action cannot be controlled, golfers
may be trading one problem for another.
Are you a golfer?

M medical emergencies ,
certainly aren't
planned. so most people '
who experience them don't
have the time to think
about the hospital that will
provide their care-they just


not all ERs are created alike.
Emergency departments are
a function of the hospitals
that back them up, so it's important to look athow an ER'iT supported and
what resources are behind it before an emergency strikes.
"Residents of south Sarasota County can rest assured that the emergency
department at Venice Regional Medical Center (VRMC) is backed by some
of the finest resources available," says CEO Melody Trimble. With board
certified emergency medicine physicians on site around the clock, the depart-
ment is fully equipped to handle the full gamut of common emergencies,
S from broken bones to the Hu, allergic reactions and more. Two separate triage
stations and a bedside registration process streamline treatment, making it
faster and more convenient. But most important are the high-caliber services
available when life itself is at stake, including:
*Geetr4 su4,s V 'gy -aJu ia -4 p -pivyewt op. 10'ey
\'RnC's general surgery program has been ranked by HealthGrades', the
nation's leading independent health ratings company, in the top 10 percent of
hospitals nationwide. So when emergency surgery is required, patients and
their families can be confident in the knowledge they are in capable hands.


Patients who enter the ER for heart attacks and other heart-related
issues can receive immediate treatment, without being transported. VRMC
has a highly-respected heart program on site, with a team of cardiac experts
and state-of-the-art facilities. The hospital's door to balloon time-the time
between arrival in the ER and balloon angioplascy-is among the fastest in
the region.


The hospital's special procedures room, staffed by experienced inter-
ventional radiologists, allows exceptionally fast intervention in stroke cases,
which can reduce the risk and severity of stroke complications-and even,
under the right circumstances, prevent them altogether.
OrrMD jf-W yirky AnNagw'a
VRMIC's orthopedic surgery program has received several five-star rat-
ings for procedures including hip and knee replacement. Orthopedic spr-
geons on the hospital's medical staff are also experts in emergency surgery
for orthopedic injuries.
Soatie--otf- 'e- 'r tDiagRfsoitcs M
Diagnosis can sometimes hold the key to life-saving treatment, and
VRMC has the technology necessary for fast, accurate diagnostic testing-
from a fully equipped radiology department to MRI and a next-generation,
64-slice CT scanner at Venice HealthPark.
To learn more about VRMIC's emergency department, which is located
on the hospital's south side at 540 The Rialto in Venice, call 485-7711
or visit www.veniceregional.com. In a life-threatening emergency, please

The Joint Commission on Accredi-
tation of Healthcare Organizations
(JCAHO) recently issued its Quality
Report for 2005, and Venice Regional
SMedical Center received some of its
highest marks yet. JCAHO is the
nation's leading non-profit. indepen-
dent organization for accreditation of
hospitals and other healthcare organi-
zations. As a requirement of accredita-
tion, hospitals regularly submit data on
their practices and outcomes. JCAHO
analyzes the data and measures it
against other accredited hospitals across
the state and nation. To produce an
"apples to apples" comparison, it has
established specific goals for all hospi-
tals, and looks at data in the context
of those goals, which seek to improve
outcomes for common but serious
conditions. Health care providers and
practitioners recognize these goals as
optimal care for treating patients.
How well did VRIMC do? For
the reporting period from January to
December 2005, the hospital received
the highest marks possible for the three
vital conditions established by JCAHO:
heart attack care, heart failure care, and
pneumonia care. The marks given to
VRM C indicated that its performance
in these areas was above that of most
other JCAHO-accredited hospitals
both statewide and nationally.
"\We have been intensely focused
on achieving the highest quality in
these areas and have instituted some
specific protocols to ensure that we
are consistently following JCAHO's
recommendations." says VRMIC CEO
Melody Trimble. "\'e are pleased with
the ratings we received on JCAHO's
Quality Report because we feel it is a
reflection of the commitment we have
to quality care." She added that the rat-
ings should provide patients with real
peace-of-mind-particularly those who
may need heart care.

STORY AND PHOTOS BY KIM COOL FEATURES EDITOR
L ove makes the world go round.
Lovelanders prove it every day as they
bring joy to each other, their parents,
employers and friends.
And each spring, Lovelanders bring their love
to the community when they perform their annu-
al Loveland Follies, a joint venture with the
Venice Little Theatre. This year's cruise theme for
the show literally lets the cast spread their love
around the world.


Spearheaded 11 years ago
by VLT actress/director/vol-
unteer Yvonne T. Pinkerton,
the Loveland/VLT collabora-
tion is in its llth year. This
year's Follies will be held in
the VLT MainStage auditori-
um Saturday and Sunday,
June 3 and 4.
Rehearsals began shortly

after the curtain came down
on the 10th show for the
newest show, a cruise aboard
the S.S. Loveland with stops
in such places as New
Orleans, Honolulu and sever-
al Pacific Islands.
Along the way, the multi-
talented cast members will
sing, dance, surf some big
waves, perform magic tricks,
do a comedy gag or two and
perform several big produc-
tion numbers.
I sat in on a recent
rehearsal, mesmerized as I.
watched the performers do a
run-through of the entire
show. Seated in two rows at


the back wall of the VLT's
upstairs main rehearsal
room, cast members with
eager looks on their faces,
waited their turn to perform.
Volunteers from VLT and
Loveland stood by in case
they needed a prompt Such as
a few words from a song, but
this group seemed to have
everything locked. Paying
strict attention to show direc-
tor Matt McCord and choreo-
grapher Becky Holahan of the
VLT, they went from one act
to another for a solid two
hours, breaking only to head
back to Loveland for lunch.
During the rehearsal I
attended, the ship, "visited"
Hawaii, San Francisco and
Los Angeles.
When the ship docks in
Honolulu, cast members per-
form a skit to the music, "Tiny
Bubbles" while some cast
members blow bubbles. Then
they go watch a luau, dancing
the hula while there.


From left, back row, Bill Lincoln, Barb Wilson and Henry McClarence; middle row Debbie Hunt,
Donna D'Alessandris and Sandy Hemmert; front row, director Matt McCord and Choreographer
Becky Holahan.


As the ship approaches the
Golden Gate Bridge, Sharon
Wirth performs a solo of "I
Left My Heart in San
Francisco," intro-and all and
she didn't forget a word.
Looking over the ship's rail,
another Lovelander spots a
pod of whales, which inspires
another musical number, and
since they are along the coast,
a rousing rendition of
"California Here I Come," just
before intermission. While
there is an intermission in the
show, there was no intermis-
sion at the rehearsal.
"You guys are doing so
good!" McCord said. "You like


Several Loveland players work on a dance routine in preparation for the Loveland Follies 2006
edition.

Pinkerton was a founderof the Loveland Follies and its direc-


tor for the first nine years.

these, big numbers, don't
you?"
The Lovelanders respond-
ed with a loud cheer, and the
rehearsal continued.
Like any good variety
show, the Loveland Follies
has an assortment of acts, big
and small.
A running sight gag
involves Nick Dulick filling his
plate at the ship's buffet table.
"Nick, you get to eat
again," McCord prompted.
"I like to do this," Dulick
responded. "If I didn't get to
do this I wouldn't be here."
In that short statement,
Dulick said it all and for all his
fellow performers. The show
is a special opportunity for
the Loveland students, and
without it, their lives would
not be as full and interesting
as they are because of the
show.
"This is heavy," Dulick said
about the tray/plate that was
loaded with "food."
"We are going to have so
much food on the table that it
is going to take awhile (to fill
the tray)," McCord said.
While Dulick does his food
schtick, preparations are
made for the next big num-


ber, which occurs when the
S.S. Loveland heads into the
port at the City of Angels, Los
Angeles, where the surf's up,
inspiring the classic Beach
Boys song, "Surfin' Safari,"
which gives some performers
the chance to get down on
their "boards" and others to
dance to the music. Getting
into it, they visit Venice Beach
and Hollywood and finish
their LA. visit with a rousing
big number, "I Love LA."
"That was fun!" McCord
said.
"This one's funner,"
Holahan said as a segue into
the next number.
Everyone was having a
great time as they zipped
through one number after
another.
Also in the show are stops
in Mexico, featuring Henry
McClarence as Zorro; New
Orleans, featuring Bob
Dawson singing "Jumbalaya"
and a full-cast Mardi Gras
parade; a tribute to the
Titanic during which Tina
Valenca sings "My Heart Will
Go On," and Michelle Hyatt
dances; and a South Pacific

Venetian Harmony Chorus Venice views

gives Teddy bears to children


Lt. Penny Kimball (center), accepts Teddy bears donated by
the Venetian Harmony Chorus of Sweet Adelines International.
At left is Linda Roberts Novak, special events chair for the cho-
rus, and at right is director PollyAnn Nanfito. ,


STAFF REPORT

Venetian Harmony Chorus
of Sweet Adelines Inter-
national donated more than
300 Teddy bears and other
stuffed .animals to the
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Department this week at a
free concert for family and
neighbors. "That makes a
total of more than 800 Teddy
bears to this cause in the last
three years," said Linda
Roberts Novak, special events
chair for the chorus.
Lt. Penny Kimball of the
Venice Post of the Sheriff's
Department, accepted the
bundles of Teddy bears that
will be used by officers who
encounter people, mostly
youngsters, caught up in
emergency situations.
"Having something to cud-
dle often comforts those who
feel very alone in such emer-
gencies," said Kimball.
"The more than 50 mem-
bers of Venetian Harmony
Chorus enjoy performing


their music," said' Roberts,
Novak, "but they want to do
something special for others
in the community." This pro-
ject and others, such as schol-
arships and donated perfor-
mances to select charities,
help fulfill that need.
The chorus, under the
direction of PollyAnn Nanfito,
performs throughout the area
for clubs, organizations, con-
ferences and strolls for event
promotions. They also present
an annual show each year. The
members come from Venice,
Englewood, Sarasota, Noko-
mis, North Port, Port
Charlotte, Longboat Key,
Bradenton, Myakka City and
Sun City Center.
The chorus is a part of
Sweet Adelines International,
a worldwide organization of
women singers committed to
advance the musical art form
of barbershop harmony.
Rehearsals are held every
Monday at 7 p.m. at United
Church of Christ, 620
Shamrock Blvd.,.Venice.

Guardian ad Litem


receives state award


STAFF REPORT


The dedication and hard
work of Pam Hindman, assis-
tant director for the 12th
Judicial Circuit Guardian ad
Litem (GAL) Program and
Paul Dain, Chair of the GAL
Volunteer Recruitment
Committee, has paid off with
great dividends. As a result of
Hindman and Dain's efforts
and the hard-working mem-
bers of the Volunteer
Recruitment Committee,
Angela Orkin, the Executive
Director of the Statewide
Guardian ad Litem Program
recently honored the local
GAL Program with an award
for achieving its 2005 volun-
teer recruitment goal. Only
four of the state's 20 Circuit
GAL Programs received the
prestigious award.
The GAL program greatly
depends on volunteer
Guardians ad Litem to repre-
sent the abused, neglected
and abandoned children of
the 12th Judicial Circuit,
which is composed of
Sarasota, Manatee and
Desoto counties. These chil-
dren have been removed
from their homes and placed
in the dependency/foster
care system. On average,
about 1,200-1,250 children
are in the dependency court
system on a monthly basis.
Guardian ad Litem volunteers
function as the "voice" of
these children in our legal
system and are dedicated to
advocating for their best
interests.
Volunteer child advocates
join the Guardian ad Litem
Program from all walks of life:
homemakers, business pro-
fessionals, teachers, lawyers,
medical personnel, factory
workers, office personnel,
retirees, to name a few.
Common sense, life experi-

ence and a strong desire to
help children are the basic
requirements for becoming a
GALVolunteer. The program
has 240 trained Guardian ad
Litem volunteers. GAL Circuit
Director, Chuck Orchowski
explains, "Our program's
mandate is to represent 100
percent of the children who
become involved in the
dependency court system.
Every child deserves to be
represented by a Guardian ad
Litem volunteer in order to
have someone totally dedi-
cated and focused on advo-
cating for the child's safety
and best interests. This year's
GAL Program recruitment
goal is 319 volunteers."
Orchowski acknowledges that
the goal is lofty but attainable
and further states, "I am con-
fident that the civic-minded
and caring people of our
community will answer the
call for this kind of "higher
order" volunteering and join
us in our mission of repre-
senting 100 percent of the
dependent children in our
Circuit. Our volunteers
receive comprehensive train-
ing and excellent, ongoing
support from our GAL staff."
In addition to the recruit-
ment award, the 12th Circuit
Guardian ad Litem Program
of Sarasota, Manatee and
DeSoto counties has also
been awarded certification by
the National Court Appointed
Special Advocate (CASA)
Association.
The 12th Circuit Guardian
ad Litem Program volunteers
are currently representing
over 800 abused or neglected
children. To reach the goal of
100 percent representation,
more volunteers are needed
immediately. To find out

Family


still


seeking


answers

BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER

Three years after her hus-
band Chris died, Jillian Brown
is still looking for closure, still
looking for answers.
"Every year this comes
around, it drives me crazy,"
Jillian said of the anniversary of
Chris' death. 'And I do notwant
another parent to go through
this."
On May26, 2003, North Port
Police found Christopher
Brown, 30, dead inside his red
pickup parked along Scarletto
Street about 7 p.m.
North Port detectives inves-
tigated the death, and based on
the.medical examiner's report,
ruled Chris' death as an "acci-
dental overdose of alcohol and
cocaine."
According to the report, a
swab of his nose tested positive
for cocaine, and a toxicology
screen found cocaine and alco-
hol in his body.
"He had his faults," Jillian
said, voice cracking. "But he
was a good husband, a good
man."
However, the mannerwhich
Jillian said she found out about
her husband's death horrified
her.
"I received a call round 7
p.m. It was Chris' phone,"
Tillian said. What she heard was
minutes of people talking in
the background.
"'"I heard on 'person:say
'Doi't touch the body' andd
another said 'whatever he
came out here to do caught up
with him'" Jillian said.
"I heard them laughing at
him," she said. "They found a
receipt for child support and
someone said, laughing, he
must have had a lot of kids and
been paying out of his (exple-
tive) for them."
Jillian said the police officers
also talked about another man
who killed himself on another
day

In the above photo are Chris Brown's children: Nickel, Katy, Ashley, Robert, Chandler and Alex.
Chandler and Ashley have other fathers, but Chris raised them as his own, Jillian Brown said.
Below, a photo of Chris Brown in Fort Myers, where he and his wife, Jillian, celebrated their
third wedding anniversary three weeks before he was found dead.


at 6:58 p.m., the time police
showed up at the scene.
"I couldn't believe what I
was hearing," she said.
Jillian said she thinks a
police officer accidentally hit
redial and did not know' he
ph'6ffin~AWs on ahd't't'ainy-
one was listening.
Jillian said she yelled into
the phone to get someone to
pick it up. She said she then
hung up the phone, but it rang
back to her twice. She then
called the police station and
told the dispatcher what she
heard and that she knew her
husband was dead.
Jillian said she still does not
know where or how her hus-
band died, but believes police
did not take the investigation
seriously, and "botched" it.

were assigned to investigate
Chris' death.
However, inconsistencies
were found in the case file. The
matter was brought to the
attention of Capt. Robert
Estrada, who said he would
"welcome" critique of any
investigation.
Still upset
Police were told about a
woman who saw Chris with
another person prior to his
death, Jillian said. The detec-
tives did not speak with the
woman. Instead, they spoke
with her husband, who
relayed what his wife told
him.
"Looking at that situation,
I agree, Estrada said.. "The
repqrtf never indicated 'the
detectives spoke with' the
woman. They should have
talked with her."
Estrada said that might
have given police a better
time of when Chris died.
"If we thought there was
something more to it, we
would not have closed the
(the case)," Estrada said.
The case file also has con-
flicting statements that
should have raised some
questions.
According to the police
reports, one witness said he
was waiting for Chris to show
up at the Chevron gas station,
as he needed to buy gas and

Turn one room into two or three


cigarettes. In his statement,
he said he bought gas and cig-
arettes, and waited about an
hour for Chris.
Another witness' state-
ment said that Chris was
going to buy the gas and ciga-
rettes because the other per-
son said he did not have any
money. The report has no fol-
low-up on this.
After the witness at the gas
station left, he told police he
went home and tried to call
Chris about 4:30 p.m. He told
police he got Chris' voice
mail, but was not sure he left
a message.
According to Chris' cell
phone records, there was no
phone call made at 4:30 p.m.
The last call made to Chris
was at 3:02 p.m. from the
Chevron gas stadon in North
Port.
Items were not document-
ed as taken into evidence.
Crime scene investigators lift-
ed fingerprints from seven
areas inside the truck, but the
report does not showwhether
detectives attempted to iden-
tify them.
Also, the 9-1-1 tapes were
not saved. Property evidence
receipts do not list any 9-1-1
tapes kept.
Estrada said he did not
have answers to other incon-
sistencies, and will be check-
ing with the detectives ney
week.


BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR

The chipper mill on Joe Jeff
Street in North Port Estates
agreed Friday to remove one
old waste pile and pay a state
fine.
VLC Recycling &
Mulching Inc., the operator
of the chipper mill, signed
an order with the Florida
Department of
Environmental Protection.
The consent order states the
DEP inspected the chipper
facility last August and found
a large stockpile of plant
waste that was supposed to
have been removed, but was
not. The order said the
stockpile was there when
VLC acquired the facility.
DEP said in the order that
this violated a Florida regula-
tion requiring plant waste to
be processed and removed
within six months.
In signing the order, VLC
Recycling & Mulching agreed
to remove the stockpile.
VLC now has until Nov. 1 to
remove the portion of the
stockpile west of a 15-foot-
wide fire lane. The rest of the
stockpile must be removed by
February 2007.
VLC must also pay a fine of
$2,200 within 30 days.
City lawsuit
. The city has a. .lawsuit
pending again-s the current
owner and operator of the
facility.


After a May 13 fire at the
chipper mill that smoldered
for several days, the city asked
the court for a temporary
injunction to prevent the mill
from receiving any new
waste.
The owner and operator
said they did not have enough
time to prepare for a hearing
on the injunction that had
been scheduled for
Wednesday. They asked to
postpone the hearing.
The city and the chipper
mill agreed that the mill
would not take in any new
waste at least until the hear-
ing is rescheduled.
Code enforcement
The city also has an
administrative fine against
the chipper that continues to
accrue. On April 27, the code
enforcement board issued an
amended order.
The order said that the
company paid $126,500 in
back fines in February, caus-
ing the city to remove a lien it
had against the chipper mill
property.
However, fines of $500 per
day continued to accrue, and
will continue as long as the
violations are not corrected.
Therefore, the city was fil-
ing the order with county
records to create alien for the
fines-that continue to accrue.

morning runs from down-

courtship, marriage and as
it appears right now excit-

There have been plenty of
stories shared by others on
the 200 or so training runs

We've shared all types of sto-
ries fueled by happiness,
grief, fear or whatever emo-

to be experiencing.
And once we were done,
be it a bridge workout or
speed run or distance route,
we all felt better.
Oh, and our fitness level
improved also.
Health is a valuable reason

bodies are machines that
need taken care of and fine-

need regular exercise and

But unlike your car,
human beings have a soul
and emotions that must be
taken care of. How many

I find it in the camaraderie
of my fellow runners. In a
world filled with all the things
we have to do, getting up an
hour or two early to go for a
run is something I chose to
do.
And that's why I continue
to run. Yes, I have time and fit-
ness goals for motivation.
But even once age and
injuries rob me of my youth, I
will continue to run because I
chose to run be it in my
home state of Ohio, the
beaches ofVenice or the tree-
lined sidewalks of Central
Park.
And my friends will con-
tinue running at 6 a.m. every
Monday, Wednesday and

This pattern continues
throughout the animal king-

Anyway, we went to the
Quinault Rain Forest, to
expose the younger genera-
tion of Barrys to nature and
teach them to appreciate the
vital ecological importance
of our dwindling rain forests,
without which the world
would soon run completely
out ofmildew. The first thing
we saw, on arriving in the
rain forest parking lot, was a
bulletin board with a recent-
ly tacked-up notice that said,
I swear:
ATTENTION!! THIS PER-

(This was followed by the

GEROUS.
As you can imagine, this
notice put something of a
damper on our rain forest
experience. It's difficult to

fully appreciate the habitat
of the Northern Flying
Squirrel when you are
expected at any moment to
encounter the Camouflaged
Machete Loon.
Nevertheless we followed
the little nature trail and read
all the informational signs,
which appeared to have
been written by graduates of
Extremely Creative Writing
101. For example, at one
point, my brother Sam and I
were munching Cheez-Its
and reading a sign that said,
quote:
"Lean your head back;
peer into the forest canopy.
Search for the subtle activity
and listen as the gentle
breezes muffle the sounds of
life above."
"Are you gonna do that?" I
asked Sam.
"I'd be afraid that a squir-
rel would go to the bathroom
on my face," he replied.
For some reason, I feel
compelled to point out here
that Sam is a Presbyterian
minister.
Anyway, we got out of the
rain forest without any
mishaps, and I'm sure that by
now the machete person has,
been captured by the author-
ities or eaten by otters. So
you and your family proba-
bly have nothing to worry
about this summer; just
relax, have fun, and enjoy a
totally carefree vacation,
wherever you roam, from sea
to shining sea. Speaking of
which, E-906.3 is the ICD
code for shark bite.

original Banyan Cafe offers
new services and a menu to
suit families with counter ser-
vice offering hot dogs, french
fries, deli sandwiches and ice
cream.
The new restaurant,
Treviso, offers a fine dining
experience in the new
Visitors Pavilion. It features
contemporary and tradition-
al fare, like lobster farfalle
and Venetian-style shrimp
and polenta. Treviso lunch
hours are 11 a.m.-4 p.m.,

have the option of dining
inside or on a patio overlook-
ing Ringling's pristine
grounds and the new Tibbals

essary to partake of Treviso's
culinary delights.
The Ringling CSI summer
camp program is designed for
youth groups and summer
camps. The program offers
groups the opportunity to
explore and uncover the
museum. Children spend the
day solving the museum's
mysteries while staying cool
indoors. Admission for
groups of children and adult
leaders participating in
Ringling CSI is free with reser-
vations through Aug. 5. Call

STAFF REPORT

The Give Something Back
International Foundation
(GSBI) announces that
Roscoe Turner and Jan Turner
have joined the organization
as vice presidents of opera-
tions and will lead the new
Rural Thai School projects for
the Foundation.
The Turners live in Venice,
and have five children, 11
grandchildren and one great-
grandchild. They have been
spending their retirement by
making trips to Thailand and
helping the school children
there. They have made six
trips and completed five
school projects, carried 27
suitcases of donated school


supplies and books and three
.kits of medical supplies. They
have spent $19,000 for school
building material and associ-
ated costs for construction
($14,000 from donations and
$5,000 from their own pock-
ets). So far eight volunteers
have paid their own expenses
and joined the Turners in
their work in Thailand.
Since March, 2004,
Roscoe's Thai Projects (RTP)
has completed projects in
four separate rural schools in
Thailand.
In Tanote: they built a tiled
covered play area/lunch-
room/community center with
a stage for school productions
and a kitchen. Because of the
attention this school received


they got two new teachers,
one for computers and an
English teacher.
In Sutuk: they built a
library and 3 classrooms,
including books and class-
room furniture. This school
got a new English teacher,
and they donated medical
supplies worth $26,000 to the
local hospital.
In Phuket: they painted
and repaired a school and
classroom furniture. They
also spent time building and
rebuilding houses after the
Tsunami.
In Huay Khom, a hill tribe
village in north Thailand:
They built and furnished a
pre-school, including play-
ground equipment. Their


work and reputation got the
attention of the government,
and the village got a new
community center. RTP has
also set up a fund to provide
school lunches for one year
and provide a scholarship for
a 15-year-old orphan girl.
Medical supply kits were
given to hospitals and a local
village clinic.
GSBI welcomes the
Turners and looks forward to
working with them to expand
the scope of work done at the
Foundation.
The Turners are currently
raising money to build the
Ban Leaw School in northern
Thailand.

April 22 at the Gulf Coast
Event and Conference Center
on the Searcy S. Koen

There are several other
cruise stops and a big finale
featuring the entire cast in a
number called "Beyond the
Sea."
The Lovelanders so obvi-
ously love what they are doing
that it is contagious, which is
why the show is so popular
year after year in Venice.
One day soon, they might
even take the show on the
road. As the show goes on
June 3-4 in Venice, an endow-
ment to fund such a possibili-
ty is being enriched via a chal-
lenge grant from George and
Lorraine Cooper. The couple
will match up to $50,000 in
donations to support the
annual Loveland Follies show,


insuring that annual expens-
es will be met "now and forev-
er." Because the Coopers
believe deeply in Loveland
and the accomplishments
made as a result of the
"Follies," they have issued the
challenge. Those interested in
supporting the Follies endow-
ment and responding to the
Cooper's challenge should
contact Susan Olson at 493-
0016, Ext. 203, or Paul
Borgman at 488-1115.
This year's shows are
Saturday, June 3, at 8 p.m. and
Sunday, June 4, at 2 p.m.
Tickets are $10 per person.
Tickets can be purchased at
the VLT box office, 140 W.

p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m.-1
p.m. and one hour before all
performances.

COOL from page 98


Should you head over to St.
Augustine inthe near future and you
should, pick up a copy of "Uncle
Sam's" by Jay Humphries, published
by Matanzas Press in St. Augustine.
The book was a winner in the
President's Book Awards presented
this past year by the Florida.
Publishers Association.
Humphries is a St. Augustine res-
ident and historian who knows
about as much about the United
States' oldest city as anyone who
ever lived there. His book is histori-
cal thriller set in the days of the
SecondWorldWar. It was inspired by


actual events that occurred along
Florida's coastline in 1942.
Humphries mixes Nazi U-boats,
the FBI, racial strife, lighthouses,
patriots, scoundrels and even Cab
Calloway into an unforgettable story
of courage and sacrifice. Unable to
put it down, I read it cover-to-cover
and have been remiss in not sharing
my delight in the story before this.
Meticulously researched, the
story features a U-boat commander
so obsessed with Florida lighthous-
es, that he risks all to surface simply
to take pictures of each one. Add a
young FBI agent on his first assign-


ment, a local teenage reporter out to
land the really big story, a young
singer trying to choose between
stardom and loyalty to the U.S., and
a recent arrival who is not at all what
he seems to be. Part history and part
might-have-been, the book offers
unique twists and turns with several
surprises and an interesting look at
race relations.
The locale is a beachfront bar,
"Uncle Sam's," where flag-waving
patriotism, cold beer and big band
music mixes nightly like the oil bub-
bles that might rise from a sunken
U-boat should that occur offshore.


Available from most major book;
resellers, the ISBN is 0-974592005.
"Uncle Sam's" is a trade paperback,
336 pages. For more information,
call (904) 461-8363 or visit matanza-
