Aluminum foiled


about its latest proposal.

BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR

Now the city will wait to
see what shape Waterford's
plans for its mixed-use pro-
ject take assuming it will
even be mixed-use.
The project would be on
the property across Tampa
Avenue from the Waterfront
condominium project. ona3-
acre parcel from just east of
U.S. 41 Business to the
Intracoastal Waterway.
The original proposal Wat-
erford submitted then with-


drew last year called for
seven-story buildings on the
eastern half of the property,
tapering down to a four-story
building at the southwest cor-
ner. The lower level was to be
shops, while the upper floors
were to be a condo/hotel.
Public reaction favored the
mixed-use idea but opposed
the buildings' height ,and
massiveness. People :also
were worried that the resi-
dential component would be
more condo than hotel.

You've probably noticed
police cars in Venice from
exotic, faraway places like
Fort Myers, Titusville and
West Palm Beach.
That is because the Venice
Police Department and Ex-
plorer Post 86 are hosting the
Florida Association of Police
Explorers, and it is big.
"We have never done any-
thing like this before," Venice
Police Deputy Chief Dan Mc-
Googan said. "We.have more
than 500 Explorers, plus their
advisers, judges, chaperones
and other assorted support
people from 40 law enforce-
ment agencies across the
state."
Additionally, McGoogan
said, Explorers' families and
friends will be visiting
throughout the week.
The event was kicked off
Sunday night to a standing-
room-only dinner crowd at
the Venice Community Cen-
ter, McGoogan said.
The Explorers will be here
through June 17.
Venice won the bid for host
post of the FAPE for 2006 and
2007, Venice Police Officer
and Senior Explorer Adviser
DanWhittaker said.
Competition

Explorers from 40 agencies are gathered in Venice for a statewide convention in whichithe
teams compete in a variety of police scenarios.


Explorer posts will be tough.
"They'll be competing in
everything from searches, to
arrests, to crisis intervention,
to shooting, to how they han-


dle bomb threats," Whittaker
said. "These events will be
held at different locations
throughout the city."
McGoogan said the com-


petition judges are veteran
law enforcement officers
from different agencies.
"Bob Perry (Venice detec-
tive) has been chosen as a


judge," McGoogan said.
"That's a great honor."
Whittaker said Venice has
hosted the Explorer delegates
for the last three years with
great success.
However, those events
only consist of up to 50 dele-
gates.
McGoogan said the side
effects of the FAPE conven-
tion will be long lasting.
"There will be a tremen-
dous boost to the economy,"
McGoogan said.
He said the participants,
families and guests are stay-
ing at three hotels in Venice:
the Holiday Inn, Best Western
and Hampton Inn.
Making a large footprint
Venice Explorers are also
becoming known throughout
the state and nation.
Last year, Venice Police
Explorer Post 86 Chief Ben
Kern was elected state presi-
dent of FAPE.
Venice Explorers were es-
tablished in 1980. Members
are between the ages of 13-21.
There are presently 31 young
men and women in the
Venice Explorers.
Many, but not all, go on to
choose law enforcement as a
career.

Affordable housing


causes concerns


BY GAVIN OFF
ASSISTANT ENGLEWOOD EDITOR


With the housing boom in
Southwest Florida, it's hard to
believe Charlotte and Sara-
sota counties need more
homes.
But the demand for hous-
ing affordable housing -
is strong in both counties.
Representatives from
Sarasota and Charlotte
counties spoke to the
Englewood Area Planning
Advisory Board on Thurs-
day, highlighting the need
for low-cost housing.
Todd Dary, with Sarasota
SCounty Planning Services,
; ...,! ,


said the county is hoping
to develop incentives for
developers who include af-
fordable housing in their
projects.
County commissioners
are also debating details of a
draft ordinance that would
set policies and strategies for
affordable housing money
coming out of the county's
Housing Fund.
"I think we're making for-
ward progress," Dary said. "I
don't think anyone is happy
how long it takes."
Dary said one obstacle to
potentially adding affordable
housing was the county's
opposition to duplexes. Dary

said both Charlotte and Sa-
rasota counties have essen-
tially "zoned out" duplexes, a
form of housing that could
be used for lower-income
residents.
Other obstacles to afford-
able-housing developments
include the increase of im-
pact fees and permitting, the
costs of which are often
absorbed by the occupants,
and the sale of large tracts of
land to upscale develop-
ments.
Major issue
Ron Thomas, with Char-
lotte County's Habitat for
Humanity chapter, said Hab-


itat is planning or building
five of its next 16 homes
west of the Myakka River.
"We certainly recognize
the affordable housing needs
of West County are signifi-
cant," Thomas said.
Homes built by Habitat for
Humanity typically measure
about 1,000 square feet and
are allocated for families be-
low or at 50 percent of the
area's median income.
Rich Rollo, administrator
for the Englewood Water
District, has recently ex-
pressed his concern over the
lack of affordable housing in,
the area.
Rollo said the district


You've probably heard that
it can rain cats and dogs.
Thankfully, that's not the
case, even with a wet tropical
storm nearby.
But Tropical Bob is con-
vinced it can rain frogs. How
else to explain nary a frog
during a drought period and
then a veritable population
explosion following a signifi-
cant rain?
It's happened here this
week. We got wet. We got
frogs.
If the frogs eat all the
mosquito larvae that are
hatching now, then T.B. will
try to accept their irritating,
incessant croaking. But if they
don't, T.B. must admit one
good thing about alligators:

MAKING SENSE OF INVESTING













Mill to remove waste piles by February 2007


BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR

The huge piles of plant
waste at the Venice Land-
clearing chipper mill are get-
ting smaller.
Late Thursday, North Port
reached an agreement with
Venice Landclearing and VLC
Holdings, owner of the chip-
per mill on Joe Jeff Street, to
reduce the waste piles. The
agreement postponed an
injunction hearing that had
been scheduled for Friday.
"I'm very happy," said City
Attorney Rob Robinson. "This
agreement is as good as we
could have hoped for through
a court hearing."
Venice Land Clearing
could not be reached for
comment.
The agreement with-the
city calls for the chipper mill
to gradually eliminate the
piles of waste vegetation by
February 2007.
As of Friday, waste piles at
the facility were noticeably
smaller. An operator affiliated
with the mill was seen driving
a street-cleaning machine in
front of the chipper plant.
The man, who refused to
identify himself, said that
since the machine was
acquired about a month ago,
he has used it several times a
day to clean the road in front
of the plant.
Robinson said that in two
weeks, the chipper mill may
resume taking in new waste
vegetation. That will return


cash flow to the operation so
that it can pay for the removal
of the waste piles.
Venice Land Clearing has
been prohibited from accept-
ing new waste since signing a
temporary agreement on
May 24 with the city.
On March 27, the city filed
a lawsuit against Venice
Landclearing and VLC Hold-
ings claiming the chipper mill
was violating city zoning ordi-
nances. The city requested an
injunction.
The plant waste caught on
fire on May 13 and burned for
several days.
A chipper mill has operat-
ed at the Joe Jeff Street loca-
tion for many years. In 1989,
the then-owner filed an oper-
ation plan stipulating the
extent of its operation.
Ownership of both the busi-
ness and the land changed
hands within the last few
years, and since then, neigh-
boring homeowners com-
plained that operations had
intensified.
Walter Fritz, whose back-
yard abuts the chipper mill,
said, 'At times, the odors are
so intense, it will make you
sick."
Tom Levesque, who lives
just up the road, said trucks
and equipment were at times
running seven days a week,
from early morning through
late evening.
Under Thursday's agree-
ment, in addition to reducing
the waste piles, the chipper
plant will pay $48,766.99 to

etative waste.


the city for the cost of fighting
the May 13 fire. The chipper,
mill must also build a fire lane


and satisfy other require-
ments of the fire department.
Venice Landclearing will


be liable to pay penalties if it
fails to complywith the agree-
ment.

Alberto's rains prove


mostly a blessing


BY ROBERT BOWDEN
STAFF WRITER

Alberto, the first named
storm of the 2006 Atlantic
hurricane season, aimed its ill
winds at the Big Bend area of
Florida Tuesday morning,
making landfall with 50 mph
winds.
Evacuations were ordered,
and officials warned residents
to be on the alert for torna-
does and storm surge.
OnAlberto's coattails, how-
ever, came beneficial rains
that drenched much of South
and Central Florida as the
tropical storm passed 300
miles west of our area.
No matter the distance to
its low pressure center, Al-
berto's soggy side passed over
us.
Alberto proved more good
than evil for Southwest
Florida.
The storm's steady rains
helped alleviate the half-foot
rainfall deficit so far this year.
Storm totals were incomplete
Monday, but more than an
inch had fallen on most of our
area by late afternoon.
The Peace River, a source
of drinking water for much of
this area, ceased its steady
decline and began climbing.
Horse Creek began a slow rise,
as well. The river had been
near a record low level before
Alberto's rains.
The fire danger for area
forests evaporated like steam
off hot asphalt, going from a
fire alerts Friday to a flood
warning Monday.
Love bugs were virtually
eradicated. The pests that
were so numerous in May
should be gone until
September. Raindrops elimi-
nate love bugs.
Both agricultural and res-
idential properties needed
! rain Iand summer plant
growth should soon begin in
earnest now.
Then, the bad news
But there were problems:
Mosquitoes will welcome
the rainy start of summer by
taking flight in about five
days.
A tornado warning most
of Monday for the area kept
some residents jittery. Often
overheard: "I can plan for hur-
ricanes but tornadoes just
make me nervous."
Although no tornadoes
were reported to have touch-
ed down in a populated area,
the National Weather Service
in Ruskin spotted several on
Doppler radar systems.
Numerous warnings were
issued, throughout the area.
All area counties had the tor-
nado warnings; coastal Char-
lotte and Sarasota counties
had high surf advisories for
large waves expected to arrive
today.
As Alberto turned north-
east Monday, hurricane
warnings were posted from,
Longboat Key northward, and
a hurricane watch was issued
from Englewood to Longboat
Key
The watch means hurri-
cane conditions are possible
within 24 hours; the warning
increases the likelihood for
hurricane conditions.
All of Charlotte and parts of
south Sarasota were under a
tropical storm watch Monday
into Tuesday morning. That
meant winds from 39 to 74
mph could occur within 24


hours.
The weather service
advised that beach erosion
was possible along the coasts
and rip currents could create
dangerous swimming condi-
tions.
Several roofing companies
said there had not been a sig-
nificant increase in com-
plaints about leaking roofs.
Maybe, one responder said,
it's because everyone who
needed a new roof got one
after the last two hurricane
seasons.
One side effect of Mon-
day's rains was that the
drought index, measuring
how tinder dry our forests are,
fell seven points. That was
before the full extent of the
rains could be measured.
Rain related to Alberto
remained in the forecast
Tuesday, then typical sum-
mertime rains were expected
Wednesday.

County earns Tree Cityhonors at conference


STAFF REPORT

In recognition of its Urban
Forestry Division's programs
and projects, Sarasota County
was named. the 2005 Florida
Tree City of the Year, the top
award presented at the
statewide Trees Florida con-
ference being held in Fort
Myers.
The award was presented
to Urban Forestry Manager
Demetra McBride, who at-
tended the four-day confer-
ence that ended Tuesday
The conference and
awards program were co-
sponsored by the Florida
Chapter International Society
of Arboriculture, the Florida
Urban Forestry Council, the
Florida Division of Forestry
and the University of Florida
Extension.
The .Trees Florida 2006
awards are presented for "out-
standing efforts to plan, plant
and protect urban and com-
munity forests throughout
Florida."
For most of the Tree City
annual awards, cities and
counties submit their portfo-
lios for award consideration.
In the case of Florida Tree City
of the Year, the Trees Florida
Award Committee chooses
the winner from among three
nominees selected by the
Florida Division of Forestry.
"It is an exceptional dis-
tinction just to be nominat-
ed," McBride said. "But, re-
member, we accept this
award not simply in recogni-
tion of the Urban Forestry
Division but also county ad-
ministration, the Sarasota
Board of County Commis-
sioners and, most important-
ly, a community that values it s
urban forest as an essential
quality-of-life element. This
honor belongs to all of us."
The Urban Forestry Di-
vision, of Public Works was
particularly recognized for its
community programs, in-
'cluding: the street tree,

improvements

to churches

STAFF REPORT

The Sarasota County Plan-
ning Commission was forced
to be on its best behavior
when it heard three presenta-
tions for local churches.
Representatives for St.
Raphael's Catholic Church in
Englewood, New Life Com-
munity Church in Venice and
Unity Church of Venice all
sought the approval of the
commissioners for expan-
sions or relocations needed to
accommodate growing con-
gregations.
All three were unanimous-
ly approved, with the discus-
sions focusing on access and
tree canopy issues.
At St. Raphael's, on Kil-
bourne Avenue off Old Eng-
lewood Road, the board ap-
proved a 9,875-square-foot
parish hall to replace what
already exists on the site. The
existing hall will be converted
into classrooms, according to
Alan Garrett, who was repre-
senting the church.
Garrett said there will be
more formalized parking and
landscape buffering along
Kilbourne.
The commissioners prais-
ed the church for developing
the campus to continue to fit
in with the community.
New Life Community
Church is looking to build a
new church on U.S. 41, just
east of Rockley Boulevard.
According to Robert Med-
ford, the church will be built
in phases and will include a
404-seat sanctuary, class-
rooms and a youth facility.
The Unity Church of Ven-
ice, on East Venice Avenue, is
adding a 7,000-square foot-
sanctuary, a 1,000-square-


foot classroom addition and
27 more parking spots.

county's urban forest, repre-
senting trees found in the


wild, in parks, on beaches, in
the county rights of way,

and along waterways and
canopy roads.
The division manages
about 54,000 trees.

O6 VNICE GOUNUULICR SUIN


Former executive officer of the Venice campus of MCC named to city council


STAFF REPORT

The first piece of business
for Venice City Council Tues-
day afternoon was to appoint
a member to get council back
up to full strength.
Dr. JimWoods was selected
to fill the vacant seat. Retired
since serving for a year as
president of Bon Secours
Venice Hospital Foundation
in 2005, Woods brings to


council a wealth of finance
and facilities expertise.
Prior to leading the foun-
dation, Woods was campus
executive officer of the Venice
campus of Manatee Com-
munity College from 1999 to
2004.
While at Hillsborough
Community College in Tam-
pa from 1991 to 1999 Woods
rose through the ranks, first
as facilities planning officer


for three years, then academ-
ic dean at the Brandon cam-
pus and finally as acting vice
president for district mainte-
nance and facilities in his
final year.
He spent four years at the
Florida Department of Edu-
cation as an educational facil-
ities specialist.
He earned his doctorate in
higher education administra-
tion at Vanderbilt University.


Woods is involved in nu-
merous community organi-
zations, including the Venice
Area Chamber of Commerce,
the Coastal Behavioral
Healthcare board, Caldwell
Trust Company, Venice Re-
gional Medical Center's pro-
fessional ethics advisory
committee and Venice-No-
komis Rotary Club.
Council had been operat-
ing as a six-member' body


since the resignation of Dean
Calamaras as mayor in May.
Fred Hammett was selected
to serve as mayor until the
general election in Novem-
ber.
Council named a new vice
mayor, too Vicki Taylor.
Hammett had the title until
being named mayor.
Council also voted to nom-
inate Venice City Manager
Marty Black for the honor of


City Manager of the Year in
recognition of exemplary
efforts on behalf of the city
during the past year.
The third annual Florida
Cities of Excellence Awards
will recognize and honor out-
standing citizens, city leaders
and cities for excellent, innov-
ative programs providing
great public service. Finalists
will be announced in early
October.


VHS from Page A


written last month to Sara-
sota-County Schools Superin-
tendent Gary Norris that
rumors about moving the
school off the island concern
the council.
Black fired off the letter,
after a staffer attended a
meeting called by Gulf Coast
Community Foundation of
Venice. The meeting included
conversations about poten-
tial relocation of Venice High
School off the island.
Options
Teri Hansen, GCCFV presi-
dent and CEO, andVHS prin-
cipal Candace' Millington
asked Tom Slaughter, the
city's planning and zoning
director, about their "options"
concerning improvements to
and even relocation of the 51-
year-old facility.
GCCFV wanted to know
what could be built on the


school's 73 acres next to the
Intracoastal Waterway if it
were relocated, according to
Slaughter.
It was the first time Venice
city leaders had heard about
the school district's plan to
use GCCFV as a community
facilitator regarding the fu-
ture ofVenice High.
"We want to let the school
board know we don't plan to
spend a lot of time looking
into high-rise development,"
Black said, referring to ru-
mors the school district could
realize significant financial
gain if it sold theVenice island
property.
Council cannot dictate to
the school district where or
how to build new schools, but
it does have authority over
what can be built on city of
Venice property.
Council member John
Simmonds threatened jok-


ingly to rezone the property
agricultural if the district sells
the current site to developers.
Member Bill Willson said
he's been getting plenty of
comments from residents op-
posed to moving the school.
It's at least partly due to
concerns about what would
take its place, he said. Willson
said there's plenty of opposi-
tion to more high-rise condos
in the area.
Olive branch
Black said council, would
be willing to consider rezon-
ing at least a portion of the
existing Venice High property
in order to keep it on the
island.
Black said he would con-
sider workforce or affordable
housing or some other land
use if the school district want-
ed to redesign the campus on
a smaller footprint. That


could be accomplished by
adding a second story for
classroom space, for exam-
ple.
"We're open to other uses
on the site," Black said.
There's no reason the
school couldn't change from
a large class 5A school to a 3A,
added Mayor Fred Hammett.
"There is trend toward
smaller high schools," he
said.
Just two hours before
Tacy's motion, Norris again
publicly denied the district
has any current plans on relo-
cating the high school.
He called a Gondolier Sun
story two weeks ago titled
"VHS relocation not just a
rumor" premature, and said
the school district was merely
in the early stages of informa-
tion gathering.
"There will be lots of public
meetings in the evening


throughout next school year"
to discuss the future of Venice
High, Norris promised at a
Tuesday workshop on River-
view High's rebuild.
At the workshop, board
members took turns express-
ing their dissatisfaction over
the sudden outpouring of
communityiinterest in the old
Riverview High architecture.
Just days before the board
was supposed to make a deci-
sion on whether to remodel
the old school, similar in age
to Venice High, or build a new
one, community members
raised concerns over the
probable demolition.
The decision was put on
hold, even though district
administrators warn that for
every month delayed, the
cost of building a new
Riverview High increases $1
million.
A Save Riverriew High


group formed and began lob-
bying the administration in
earnest, even though discus-
sions and numerous facili-
ty studies condemning the
school have been ongoing
for at least six years.
Proponents of both sides
presented their case before
the school board Tuesday.
The board will make a final
decision next week.
School board members
were clearly concerned about
the lack of early community
input and adequate informa-
tion on which to base their
decision. Without a better
model to engage the public,
they foresee the same bumpy
road next year when the
future of Venice High is deter-
mined.

Oneof rff
the
unheralded
Health risks that can
result from heavy alcohol
I1 consumption is bone loss. Normally,
adult bones undergo a replacement
- process called "remodeling," whereby cells called
S osteoclasts break down sections of old bone and
cells known as osteoblasts create new bone to
replace them. This process is usually balanced so
that young adults replace as much bone as they
lose. Recent research, however, indicates that
Excessive consumption of alcohol impedes the
ability of osteoblasts to function properly. As a
Result, heavy drinkers may begin to lose bone within
a matter of a few years. Heavy alcohol consumption
may also result in a higher risk of fractures and slower
healing rates for broken bones.
We strive to keep the public educated about various
health issues, feeling that education is the best tool a
patient can use to make informed choices.
At TWIN PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH CENTER, it
is important to us that patients receive "wellness" care
rather than waiting until the "pain of dis-ease"
triggers a visit! We will try to help you understand
your choices about chiropractic and let you make an
informed choice regarding chiropractic health and
chiropractic care. We're located at
1214-C Venice Ave. East. Call us at 412-3800 and
start feeling better. We offer massage therapy and
have 4 licensed massage therapists on staff.
Chiropractic works.
P.S. While heavy drinking is often defined as six or
more drinks per day, researchers found that as few as
three drinks of alcohol daily can cause bone loss.

County schools seeing more technological upgrades


BY RACHEL BROWN HACKNEY
PELICAN PRESS

Bob Hanson has a vision of
the not-too-distant future in
which parents will be able to
navigate easily with a few
clicks of a mouse among Web
sites offering them details
about their children's grades,
allowing them to supervise
what those same children eat
for lunch in the school cafete-
rias and checking on their
county tax bills.
Hanson, the information
officer for Sarasota County
and for the Sarasota County
School District, recently
updated school board mem-
bers on progress that has
been made in moving local
education efforts into a high-
er-tech mode.
Among the good news is
that Comcast finally has fin-
ished wiring all the district
schools for high-speed Inter-
net access. However, a delay
in getting some pieces of
equipment has held up bring-
ing all the facilities online, he
said.


Seven schools were enjoy-
ing the new, faster access to
the World Wide Web as of
early May. They will be joined
by the others, he added, in
time for the start of the 2006-
07 school year.
The schools have been
leasing a system from Verizon
to provide network capability
at a speed two-thirds the
capacity of high-speed cable
modems, Hanson pointed
out. The cost of that system
has been more than $500,000
per year in vendor payments
alone, he said. That does not
cover tech support.

Half-way there
The board's commitment
to the Community Fiber
Partnership with the county,'
established about 16 months
ago, will give the district
Internet access about 6,700
times faster than the current
speed at a cost of $600,000 to
$700,000 per year, including
internal support. The change
will enable the schools to
offer a wide range of new
learning tools, Hanson said.


Already, about 50 percent
of the classrooms have digital
projection
devices. That
effort is to be
completed in
Sthe 2006-07
fiscal year,
which begins
July 1, accord-
ing to docu-
m e n t s
Norris Hanson pro-
vided the
board members.
Among the other advances
coming to all classrooms,
Hanson noted, will be the
installation of audio equip-
ment that will allow teachers
to wear microphones to
record their lectures. Lessons
then can be put on Web sites
designed for the -individual
teachers.
That advance will be espe-
cially helpful to homebound
students, board member
Laura Benson pointed out.
Additionally, students will
be able to use classroom texts
on the Internet, Hanson said.
Publishers already are provid-


ing more and more Web ver-
sions of their textbooks, he
added, which can be updated
very easily, "and it takes the
weight off kids' backs," refer-
ring to concerns in recent
years about students' back-
packs causing them physical
harm.
Further, he said, that mate-
rial can be accessed easily by
parents, so they willbe able to
see what their children are
supposed to be studying.
It will be up to the board to
decide what modifications
will be implemented next in a
five-year cycle supporting the
NeXt Generation Learning
Plan, which was designed to
prepare students better to
compete in a world economy,
Hanson pointed out,
A tentative schedule calls
for all classrooms to have
TV/DVD technology installed
in the 2007-08 fiscal year.

Better planning
One challenge raised by
board members was how the
district could build facilities
for the future, when techno-


Education consultants working on career technical education


BY RACHEL BROWN HACKNEY
PELICAN PRESS

For the third time in about
18 months, the Sarasota
County School Board has
contracted with GMS Part-
ners Inc. for assistance with
implementing the district's
NeXt Generation plan over
the next five years.
The latest deal, a $25,000
contract, was approved
unanimously by the board at
its regular meeting on April 4.


The principal partner in
the nationally known educa-
tion consulting firm is Grace
Sammon of Silver Spring, Md.
Barbara Chomko, executive
director of secondary educa-
tion for the district, has been
giving copies of Sammon's
latest book, "Battling the
Hamster Wheel Strategies
for Making High School
Reform Work," to Sarasota
County principals, she said.
This third contract is to be
paid for with the last of the

funds awarded to the district
three years ago through a fed-
eral Small Learning Com-
munities Implementation
Grant. Superintendent Gary
Norris said in an interview
that the consultants will help
with redefining the district's
high school technical educa-
tion programs. Specifically, he
said, the GMS representatives
will be helping staff match
those programs to workforce
needs.
"It's an enhancement of


what they've been doing"
with the earlier contracts,
Norris said. "Connecting the
dots."

Better, and better
Chomko pointed out that
Sammon is known for her
expertise in the small learn-
ing communities approach.
That effort, she explained,
involves breaking up large,

logical improvements are
expected to be available at an
even faster pace than they
have been over the past few
decades.
"We have to stop investing
in wiring that requires me to
rip into the wall" to make
upgrades, Hanson said.
In the case of the new
Riverview High School in
Sarasota, he continued, he
and district officials are look-
ing into the possibility of
installing 2 1/2-inch raised
floors, so new wiring can be
put in place "just by lifting the
floor."
Further, he said, instead of
purchasing laptops comput-
ers for students, at a cost per
device of $1,000 or more, it
might be better to use what
he called "one-to-one com-


putting environments," solid-
state devices with all the
capabilities of personal com-
puters but with costs in the
hundreds of dollars per unit.
Hanson also pointed out
that laptops' lifespan of three
to four years made the other
devices more attractive, as
they were good for seven
years or longer.
Board member John Lewis
thanked Hanson for his
efforts and expressed appre-
ciation to Superintendent
Gary Norris, as well, for deter-
mining that "our technology
Really needed to go forward."
"I'm confident the struc-
ture we're putting in place,"
Norris said, "can really make a
huge difference" in the edu-
cation of the district's stu-
dents.

Wildlife corridors sought for 681.


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


Techniques that enable
wildlife to enjoy easier and
safer movement across roads
and highways a Sarasota
County commitment, ac-
cording to Sherri Swanson, a
project -scientist with the
county Natural Resources De-
partment have galvanized
area conservationists to focus
on State Road 681 in Nokomis
in anticipation of develop-
ment plans there.
A road design plan of the
Florida Department of Trans-
portation has drawn their
attention. It calls for the pro-
vision of three full median
openings and perhaps six
right-turn-only connections
along the 4.14-mile stretch.
Friends of Oscar Scherer
State Park hope to obtain funds
from FDOT and the county for
wildlife crossings on the road.
Laurel Schiller, president, and
Fran Palmeri, secretary, fear the
changes in the road design "will
adversely impact vulnerable
wildlife populations in and
around" the park
Animals now cross below
the S.R. 681 railway overpass.
They travel across private
land to public conservation
lands several miles east of In-
terstate 75, according to the
organization.
The Friends group has
been working with county
and FDOT road-builders and


county ecological specialists
for several years to incorpo-
rate wildlife corridors into the
design of the extended Hon-
ore Avenue. The extension,
construction of which is ex-
pected to start in 2010, is from
Central Sarasota Parkway
south to Venice. It includes
the widening of 1-75 at the
Laurel Road interchange.
Surveying and topographi-
cal studies will take place
until the end of this year,
according to Vinod Sanchetti,
project manager for road
design in the county public
works department. Those ef-
forts were approved at a
meeting early last month
arfiong FDOT and county en-
gineers that approved the
design concept. They exam-
ined approaches to link wild-
life habitats and reduce road-
kill, Sanchetti said.
Road kill
Slow-moving animals, in-
cluding turtles and salaman-
ders, are at high risk of be-
'coming road kill when they
try to cross a road to reach
mating or nesting sites on the
other side. Wide-ranging
bears, bobcats and panthers
have been struck by vehicles
on county roads.
Road kill also threatens
humans. Each year, accord-
ing to The Wildlife Society,
more than 200 motorists are
killed and thousands more
are injured in the United


States in collisions with ani-
mals.
Spokespersons for the in-
surance industry in 2000 esti-
mated that individuals paid
$2,000 for repairs each time
they hit a large animal. Fa-
talities and injuries in animal-
auto collisions that year cost
more than $200 million nation-
wide.
"When we preserve wet-
lands in one place and woods
in another, they're often not
connected," said Schiller.
That lack of connection
concerns her and other con-
servationists who want to link
such areas. A wildlife corridor'
between the southeast corner
of Oscar Scherer State Park
across Palmer Ranch lands
east to the south side of State
Road 681, then north and east
to public conservation lands
is their objective. It would
protect a gopher tortoise pre-
serve on the south side of 681,
and reduce increased road kill
anticipated as a result of
future development.
Plans for a 220-acre shop-
ping and residential complex
have been announced for S.R.
681. It will include-1,800 con-
dominiums and townhouses
and more than 350,000
square feet of retail space.
Traffic on 681 has averaged
12,000 vehicles a day since
1980 when the roadway was
completed. It was created as a
connector between U.S. 41
and 1-75.

tion programs into more per-
sonalized environments, so
teachers can come to know
their students and those
students' families better.
The SLC approach across
the country, .Chomko said,
has resulted in decreases in
discipline problems and
improved attendance and
enabled students to feel more
connected to each other and
to teaching staff.
In regard to the career and
technical education focus,
Chomko said, the SLC
method brings "relevance to
the curriculum."
. For example, students
interested in medical careers
spend time on literature and
learn math skills related to
those fields. This allows stu-
dents to see a connection, she
said, "between what they're
learning and the world."
With that approach,
Chomko said, "graduation
isn't seen as a termination of
learning but a gateway" to
working in the real world.
The GMS consultants were
scheduled to be in the district
this week to begin their work
on this third contract. The
effort is to be completed by
early July, Chomko said.

OUR VIEW




Alligators and manatees are not equal


Let's get this straight.
The Florida Fish & Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission will downlist the
fragile manatee to a "threatened" species -
the same classification as the alligator. It did
that despite the fact there are more than 1
million alligators in Florida and only about
3,000 manatees. Does that sound compara-
ble to you? To us, it does not.
The second-highest number of manatee
deaths ever was recorded in 2005 when 396
of the mammals died 80 as the result of a
collision with boats.
We believe the manatee deserves its status
as endangered. Its survival is certainly more
in question than that of the alligator which
was Jisted as endangered in 1970 when its


numbers dwindled because of hunters who
sought its meat and hide.
The alligator snapped back quickly and, in
1977, was downlisted to threatened allow-
ing it to be hunted by permit and for alliga-
tors to be harvested in farms.
There is no reason to think the manatee
could rebound nearly as fast.
First of all, alligators lay as many as 60 eggs
each time they breed, and it only takes 65
days for those eggs to hatch, according to The
Gator Hole Web site, maintained by Mike
Godwin.
Manatees, on the other hand, rarely have
more than one offspring each time they
mate. And, they breed only once about every
four or five years. Given those circumstances,


and the death rate, manatees are truly
endangered and could be extinct in a decade.
It is also important to note, when compar-
ing the status of alligators and manatees, that
alligators have few predators. Only hunters,
when issued a license, are a real threat to alli-
gators and the number of alligators that can
be harvested by hunting is strictly regulated.
Manatees, on the other hand, are susceptible
to red tide and speeding boats.
The march toward downlisting manatees
was strictly political. The boating and devel-
opment lobbies have pushed hard for years
to downlist the manatee in hopes it will
reduce the number of no-wake zones and
allow more piers and docks to be built to
accommodate the state's burgeoning popu-


lation.
While federal laws will still give the mana-
tee some protection, we believe it sets a bad
precedent for the state to downlist the mana-
tee. It serves no real purpose other than
pointing out the hypocrisy of state guidelines
that would allow often-dangerous alligators
to thrive while the manatee a gentle crea-
ture whose very sight elicits excitement -
struggles for survival.
For those who believe downlisting is
wrong, there are still avenues open to express
your view. The FWCC will be accepting pub-
lic comments this summer while crafting a
management plan for manatees. You can
reply by e-mail to manatee_plan@myfwc
.com. Give your opinion.


Time for all good


people to speak up


ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST


Do you want to see your
city government leaders in
place for 18 years? Do you
think current term limits -
nine years (three;^hree.year
terms) followed by at least
one year out of office is too
little, too much or just right?
Do you think a council
member, having been elected
three times, should be able to
immediately run for mayor
and, if elected, serve three
more three-year terms (a total
of 18 years without a break)?
What about shorter terms
- for example, two terms of
three years as a council mem-
ber, followed by two terms as
mayor for a total of 12 years?
You have a chance to listen
and comment on this issue
Thursday, June 15, when the
Charter Review Committee
meets; in council chambers at
city hall.
I think a good deal of good
can be accomplished if citi-
zens will express their views
to the committee. For exam-
ple, a more frequent change
in leadership .will influence
appointments to committees.
The city's most powerful
committee, the pro-develop-
ment planning commission,
has members who have been
in place 10 years.
A change of mayor and
changes in council caused by
having a least one year out of
office and shorter terms
would assist in electing new
leaders and possibly reflect
evolving views by citizens.
Council member Bill Wil-
lson at the last charter com-
mittee meeting made the
argument that people have to
be elected to serve as mayor
or council members, so they
can be removed if the citizens
want, by not re-electing them.
Bill's point is reasonable and
one most incumbents would
make.
On the other hand, there is
a huge advantage to being an
incumbent. In the American
political system, at the local,
state and federal level, almost
all incumbents are re-elected.
Why? Money is part of the
answer, and here inVenice we
have a political action com-
mittee that has successfully
put its candidates in office
and kept them there.
The county commission-
ers had term limits, the state
legislators have term limits,
the governor has term limits,
the president of the United


States has term limits. Why?
Citizens recognize that
change is necessary. We
should apply that reasoning
toVenice
Name recognition helps
incumbents, also. Folks rec-
ognize their names and if
things are not "too bad" and
they aren't much involved
with the issues, they just go
along without making a
change.
A voter has to want a
change for some reason, to be
inspired to vote out an in-
cumbent. Fair or even poor
performance, elected officials
not understanding the issues,
favoring developers, etc."-
these things do not register
on many voters.
In Venice, however, there
are signs that many people
are getting involved. People
here like the city, its small-
town feel. Most do not like
taller buildings. Most want to
have the open feeling that
buildings of lower heights
offer.
John Nolen's vision of Ven-
ice called for open spaces,
broad avenues, multiple
parks, an open beachfront, no
buildings more than four sto-
ries tall. People are telling the
city planners and council
members that.
Thanks to the Venice Area
Historical Society, experts on
Nolen's vision of Venice and
other model cities have come
to the city and spoken, ex-
pressing their view that civic
activism will be necessary to
have the city grow within the
Nolen conception.. Other-
wise, we will have more tall
buildings that destroy that
vision.
Venice upward?
Tuesday there was a city
council workshop in which
developer Michael Miller pre-
sented some revised plans for
the area between East Tampa
and East Venice avenues,
Business 41 and the Intra-
coastal Waterway. There will
be future discussion of these
plans if they move toward
completion.
In the presentation we saw
depictions of earlier versions
of some plans, including ones
of nine stories, eight stories
and the one I was familiar
with, seven stories for a
condo/hotel. I checked with
Bob Mudge, editor of the
Gondolier Sun, to see if I had
been asleep when the eight-
and nine-story plans were
floated and he told me he did
not recall those having been
submitted to the city.
In any event, the current
plans top out at six stories,
well beyond the Nolen plan of
four stories.
In the PowerPoint presen-
tation, which I reviewed
before city staff presented it
and which might have been

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Bypass needs an overpass for trail


Editor:
Yes, the new recreational trail that extends north from the
Venetian Waterway Park and the Venice Train Depot to an area
south of Clark Road is indeed a fantastic addition to our com-
munity. The social and economic impact will be more than
many of us realize.
However, one issue that needs to be addressed is getting
across U.S. 41 Bypass. Trail users are being asked to go to the
stoplight southeast of the trail and cross at that point.
I'm afraid not all pedestrians will do that, but will try and
negotiate traffic by crossing the first two traffic lanes to get to
the median, and then try and make it across the second two
lanes. I witnessed exactly that scenario just a few days ago
when two cyclists obviously didn't want to use the crossing
light.
With the number of red-light-running violations in this
county, I'm not sure this option is a safe way to cross either.
Many communities that have had the same problems have
constructed overpasses. This makes a lot of sense.
Let's make it a first-class trail and not expose the users to any
unnecessary safety hazards. Besides, with some imagination, it
could make a nice statement when entering the city.

Administration must be
held accountable
Editor:
My heart goes out to those
Iraqi men, women and chil-
dren killed by six Marines
who finally snapped in Ha-
ditha. What they did was ter-
rible and their parents are
probably saying, "My son
would never do anything like
that."
But obviously, they did.
This country took these
young men away from their
homes for possibly two or
three tours of duty in a coun-
try where Americans are
hated by everyone, children
included.
They watched as their
friends and comrades were
blown apart fighting in an un-
necessary war instigated by
two ex-oil men who thought
they knew better than the rest


of the world how to proceed
against Saddam Hussein. Un-
fortunately, they convinced
the United Nations and the
majority of American people
that they were right.
We taught our young men
to kill, and they killed out of
anger and frustration. When
they are brought to trial, as
they most assuredly will be, I
do firmly believe that Bush,
Cheney and Rumsfeld should
stand there with them. There
is precedent for such action
to be taken.
After World War II, the war
department at the Nurem-
berg Trials labeled atrocities
and the waging of war of
aggression as war crimes.
Therefore, members of the
Nazi Party hierarchy were so
charged and were found
guilty. They were sentenced
to terms of four to 25 years in


prison.
It's time our leaders were
also held accountable for
their actions.

Don't be blinded
by party lines
Editor:
Its clear a lot of people just
ignore the issues and vote the
way their parents did, straight
Democratic or Republican,
regardless of who is running
for office.
Take the letter Ms. Ian-
narone wrote to justify the
Bush administration. She
wrote "President Clinton,"
among other Democrats, "be-
lieved" that Saddam Hussein
had WMD. You don't start a
war on belief; you need con-
crete proof.
Bush, on the other hand,
was so anxious to pre-emp-
tively strike at Iraq that even
after he was told that Iraq had
not purchased uranium from
Africa, he announced to the
American people that it had.
This was a lie..
This also led to the "out-
ing" ofValarie Plame as a CIA
operative, who at the time
was working in Iran to track
proliferation of nuclear mate-
rials in Iran. This ruined her
cover and the ability to track
Iran's progress in nuclear
ambitions.
All this was done so Bush
could send our kids to war for.
what Ms. Iannarone says is
our safety, "first and fore-
most."
George Tenet resigned as
CIA director after his "slam
dunk" on WMD. As for the
polls, they are taken to gauge


people's opinions, and they
count now, just as they did in
the "Clinton years."
I only hope that the
American people exercise
their right to vote this year in
2008 and vote according to
the issues and facts.

t's all due to tax cuts
Editor:
It is interesting to read let-
ters to the editor from leftists
concerning economics. They
throw around numbers as if
they understand them. It
merely shows they are eco-
nomically challenged leftists,
similar to Hugo Chavez,
Venezuela's anti-American

socialist.
Facts speak for themselves.
There were 75,000 jobs creat-
ed in May. The economy has
created about 1.9 million jobs
over the past 12 months, and
more than 5.3 million since
August 2003.
The unemployment rate
fell to 4.6 percent, which is
lower than the average of the
1960s, 1970s, 1980s and
1990s. And the important an-
nual rate of real hourly com-
pensation rose at 3.2 percent
in the first quarter.
Since January 2001, real
after-tax income has risen by
12.9 percent, or 7.3 percent
per person. In April it in-
creased at an annual rate of
6.7 percent. Over the past 12
months employment increas-
ed in 47 states.

Time to move. This call is in response to the question about
moving the high school off the island. I think it's the most ter-

They've expanded Venice to the point that it's reaching all the
way out to the Myakka River and everywhere else. They might
as well move the high school out and get it more economically
centered. Not only that, it is now an island with three bridges to
cross. In case of disaster, there is a possibility that a whole
school full of children would be stuck on the island and not be
able to reach their homes, or their parents be able to reach
them. I think in this day.and age, the time has come. Move the

Alligators have seniority
Editor:
I would like to congratu-
late Capt. Ralph Allen on the
fine .article he wrote in the
Waterline on June 8. He wrote
a good gator story, but I don't
think he went far enough.
The alligator is a reptile
dating back to prehistoric


times, which gives it a history
far beyond any human. It was
also in Florida before any
human even thought of retir-
ing or living here. To me, that
gives the alligator seniority
rights to this land.
We, as humans, should
respect that fact and become
educated in the ways of the
animal, instead of trying to
eliminate a "threat" that isn't
I did, and I am amazed by the
resiliency of this magnificent

Kennel Club

may expand

to year-round

live racing

The Collins family,
which owns and
operates dog racing
facilities in Orlando
and Sarasota, recently
secured permission to
open a card room for
low-stakes poker
games.

BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

A Sarasota County decision
to allowTexas Hold 'Em poker
games at the Sarasota Kennel
Club may persuade family
owners of the track to copy
other Florida pari-mutual op-
erations and extend grey-
hound racing to a year-round
attraction.
"It's a possibility we're con-
sidering. Racing seasons were
deregulated a long time ago,"
said Kennel Club Vice Pres-
ident Jack Collins Jr. 'All we'd
have to do is apply to the
Florida. Division of Pari-
Mutual Wagering. We have
until November to make
plans.",
In April the county com-
mission unanimously gave its
consent for a card room at the
kennel club. Low-stakes pok-
er can only be played when
there is live racing at pari-
mutual facilities, and most
Florida greyhound tracks with
poker rooms have gone to
year-around racing.
Ironically, the Collins fami-
ly owns a kennel club in
Orlando that already features
year-around racing but no,
card room. State law requires
pari-mutual operators to
obtain permission for card
rooms from the county where
they are located.
In the cards
Permission for a card room
at the Sarasota Kennel Club
did not come easily. In 2004,
the county commission asked
Collins to clear it with the
Sarasota City Commission
because the track is located
within the municipal limits.
The city voted it down.
Several city'commissioners
expressed concerns about le-
galized gambling in the com-
munity and suggested poker
games were just another
incremental step on the road
to casino gambling. But their
decision did not discourage
Collins from trying again.
This spring, he invited city
and county commissioners
out to the track for an expla-
nation of how pari-mutual
wagering works, and to assure
them there is nothing threat-
ening about low-stakes poker.
He prevailed when the city
commission voted 4-1 to
waive its objections.
"Now we have to concen-
trate on where to put the card
room and look for people to
work in it," Collins said. "I'm
going to take a couple of
weeks to look and listen at
other card rooms, see how
they work, and try to take the
best of their ideas. This is all
new to us."
Collins won't have to go far.
Kennel clubs in Tampa, St.
Petersburg and Naples cur-
rently feature year-around
racing and host Texas Hold
'Em poker games in their card
rooms.
"Dog racing is still the main
attraction at all of them," he
said.
The Collins family has op-
erated the kennel club for
more than 60 years, ever since
it was purchased for unpaid


"property taxes in 1944. It cur-
rently features live dog-racing
during the winter season and
closed-circuit televised racing
from other tracks year-round.


School board pondering Web education for parents


BY RACHEL BROWN HACKNEY
PELICAN PRESS

With numerous national
news stories having made it
plain that children's unsuper-
vised use of the Internet can
expose them to danger, the
Sarasota County ,School
Board has begun discussing
means of educating parents
as well as students about the
potential for harm.
During a board work ses-
sion, Chair Carol Todd raised
the issue, saying she had
watched some of the testimo-
ny delivered by Justin Berry to
a congressional panel on
April 4.
Berry, the subject of a De-
cember New York Times pro-
file, reportedly was molested
as a teenager by people he
had met online. Eventually,
he went on to run a porno-
graphic Web site for five years,
featuring images of himself,
The Times reported. More
recently, he has been assisting
with the prosecution of about
1,500 people who paid him to
perform acts on camera,
according to The Times.
"I don't think this district
should be the Internet po-
lice," Todd said.
Still, she was concerned,
she said, about what the dis-
trict was doing to teach chil-
dren about safety on the

Internet, especially given the
fact that advances in Web
usage were "moving at such
an incredibly rapid pace."
Superintendent Gary Nor-
ris responded, "We need to be
organizing physical chat
groups for parents," offering
them opportunities at
schools to talk among them-
selves about the issues and to
get advice.
"I think we can only do a
certain amount in the class-
room," he added.
Limited participation
Associate Superintendent
Lori White pointed out that a
program called Net Smart
was being offered in grades
four, five and six. It is being
provided in conjunction with
efforts by the Center for
Missing and Exploited Chil-
dren to address Internet us-
age concerns, she noted.
One part of that program,
she said, focuses on the chil-
dren; the other, on the par-
ents.
Not all of the district's
schools with those grades are
participating, she said.
A second program, White
said, called i-SAFE, is based
on a curriculum provided by
the FBI. It is geared to young-
sters in the seventh grade.
That program, White added,
is taught by school resource


officers in computer classes
for the students.
Finally, she said, Riverview
High School had representa-
tives from the Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office pre-
senting a program on Inter-
net safety for students.
As dangerous as drugs
Board member Laura Ben-
son said she thought Norris
"had hit a nail on the head" in
suggesting programs directed
at parents.
"I'm very happy that we're
introducing curriculum in the
schools." However, she said, "I
don't want this to be some-
thing else that falls on the
schools" in terms of ensuring
student safety.
"If we're not somehow
partnering with the parents,
all of it falls, it stops when (the
students) walk out the door,"
she said.
Further, she said, "If you
want to ... assume that the
kids who hear this informa-
tion (in school) are suddenly
going 'to be completely safe
when they get home, then I
think you have a false sense of
security."'
Ideally, she said, parents
should keep computers in
high-traffic areas athome, so
they can monitor their chil-
dren's activities on the In-
ternet.


"I monitor my kids," she
said.
The district, Benson add-
ed, needs to help parents
learn how to navigate sites on
the Web such as MySpace
.com, which has become a
very popular site for young
people to post information
about themselves as well as
photos and video.
Norris said he feels that the
district could schedule some
gatherings for parents to help
them become more informed
about what is happening on
the Internet.
Board member John P.
Lewis also suggested the staff
look into starting a curricu-
lum modeled after the Drug


(RA'B -T R


Abuse Resistance Education
program, which is taught by
law enforcement officers.
Almost every student knows
his or her DARE officer, he
said; the parents also come to
know those officers.
Lewis added, "The Inter-
net's becoming as dangerous
to students as drugs were
when DARE was started."
"Good point," Norris said.
"It's a community issue,"
Todd said. "I think we need to
be cognizant of it. It's all about
children's safety."

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


The County Cup losers'
bracket showdown between
Kiwanis and Babe's Hardware
has been pushed back at least
two days because of Tropical
Storm Alberto.
The two Venice Little
League rivals are scheduled
to play each other at 7 p.m.
Wednesday at Twin Lakes
Park. The game was rained
out Monday night and
then pushed back again
Tuesday because of wet


grounds.
Kiwanis and Babe's have
played three times this year
already. Kiwanis won twice
in the regular season and
also in the City Cup final.
Kiwanis ended up capturing
this year's City Cup, Babe's,
which won the County Cup
last year, is hoping the
fourth time is the charm.
-Kiwanis is 5-1 in the Coun-
ty Cup. Babe's is 4-1.
There are only four teams
left in the County Cup -
Kiwanis, Babe's, the Sarasota
Cubs and the SaraSota Na-


tionals. A total of 31 teams
started the double-loss elim-
ination tournament, which
began May 31.
The Cubs wait to face the
winner of Kiwanis-Babe's in
the losers' bracket final. That
game is slated for 7 p.m.
Thursday.
Whoever comes out of the
losers' bracket will take on
the. Sarasota Nationals, who
are unbeaten, rested and
waiting. The Nationals were
a sub .500 team in the
Cen-tral Sarasota Little
League during the' regular


season.
The finals are slated for 7
p.m. Friday. If the losers'
bracket team wins that, the
rematch will be 11 a.m.
Saturday.

All-Stars have been select-
ed and practice will officially
start Thursday evening. Ven-
ice is playing host to the
9-10, 11-12, Junior and Senior
District All-Star Tournaments
at its Chuck Reiter 'and Well-
field facilities.
All-Star play for the 9-10
and 11-12 teams will begin


on Friday, June 30, at Chuck
Reiter. Play for Juniors and
Seniors will start July 7 at
Wellfield.
Venice Little League is also
the host for sectional play.
They will begin the weekend
of July 21.
Volunteers are needed
for both the districts and
regional. They are needed
for keeping score, conces-
sion work and keeping the
grounds clean. If you can
help, call 486-8006 and

PROJECT from Page 1A


A "scaled-back," six-story,
four-tower version of the
company's original plan had
its official public debut
Tuesday in a city council
workshop, and received a
generally warm reception,
even from people usually crit-
ical of growth. Except, that is,
for resident Don O'Connell,
who pulled no punches.
"This is essentially a legal
process that's called spot zon-
ing," he said. "It's been illegal
for years."
O'Connell said the city's
mixed-use zoning ordinance
lacks objective standards, so
council members are left to
vote on proposed projects
based on whether they like
them, as opposed to whether
they meet well-defined crite-
ra.
"This subjective zoning is a
good example of a govern-
ment of men, not a govern-
ment of laws," he said.
Redeeming
Other criticisms of the pro-
ject were milder, again focus-
ing mainly on height.
Sue Lang, president of the
Venice Neighborhoods
Coalition, said about five to
six VNC members attended
the group's monthly meeting
Monday to discuss the sub-
ject. They would prefer build-
ings no taller than four stories
but could accept a five-story
hotel because of the loss of
hotel rooms in the city in the
last few years.
"I think the hotel ... is the
most beneficial and redeem-
| ing aspect of this project," she
t said."
Herb Levine, Venice
Taxpayers League president,
urged the consideration of a
conference center for the site,
which he said should be a
story shorter.
"I have no problem with
five and three (stories)," he
said, "even if the five and three
have a parking garage in the
back so they can use the full
five and the three."

and Planning Director Tom
Slaughter said the project
could go down to five stories,
but that likely would mean
Eliminating the shops.
"By--reducing the overall
scale and mass of the build-
ings," Black said, "you've got
to lose some of those uses."
That prospect didn't sit
well with council members
Bill Willson and John Moore.
"I. for one would be
extremely disappointed to see
us go to nothing but residen-
tial," Willson said.
Moore, who voted against

the ordinance creating the
mixed-use district, agreed.
"I am in favor of the mixed-
use development ... particu-
larly in Venice and particular-
ly in this area," he said.
Ted Yeatts, a former city
council member and Venice's
first city engineer, raised
another concern: traffic.
"Once the city gets grid-
locked," he said, "the city of
Venice as we know it will
cease to exist."
Black informed him the
city has for about 10 years
required traffic studies for
projects of this magnitude,
paid for by the developer, and
said the Regional Planning
Council would do a study of
its own.
Good notes
Several speakers spoke in
favor of the proposal, offering
Waterford praise for trying to
balance its financial interests
and community desires for
shorter, less massive build-
ings.
"I think Mr. Miller and his


company have gone over-
board to appease the com-
munity," Marty Dover said.
She acknowledged she
actually preferred the original
plan, though she doesn't like
the nine-story Waterfront
towers. But the revised plan
still. would "bring a higher-
spending group of tourists to
Venice," she said.
"I think this is a marvelous
and very attractive compro-
mise," she said.
Janet Apple, a new resi-
dent, echoed Dover's com-
ments.
"I think the developer
should be commended for
having the foresight to create
something that is very aes-
thetically pleasing," she said.
Jeff Boone, Waterford's
attorney, said the company's
architects would "sharpen
their pencils" and a formal
proposal that addresses com-
ments from the meeting
would be filed in the near
future.
"We've taken very good
notes," he said.

At the age of 75, Earl Black-
bum is a first-time homebuy-
er.
The last of the Blackburns
to live on Blackburn Bay are
selling their family home and
'moving a bit inland to a
smaller home.
Raised in Sarasota, Black-
burn has lived on Blackburn
Bay in Nokomis since 1957
when he and .his wife Elaine,
were given a bay-side piece of
property that was part of the
original land grant issued to
his maternal grandmother
Mary Bacon, circa 1886.
"To serve the grant, she
would ride the train to Sara-
sota, put herself and the kids
in a rowboat and row from
Sarasota to here," Earl said.
"She did that three summers
in a row."
The Blackburn's home is
roughly at the middle of the
land acquired by Mary Bacon.
"A man could homestead,"
Blackburn said. "She had a
land grant, a way around it for
a lady. She had to live here
three months a year, in June,
July and .August, and start
improving it.
"She built a three-sided
lean-to and they slept under a
mosquito bar (netting)."
,Bacon was widowed and
was married a second time to
a nfiia whose last -name \\as
Harris. He was from Manatee
County, Blackburn said.
Blackburn's paternal lin-
eage goes back to George
Washington Blackburn who
ran the first hardware store in
Sarasota, on "lower" Main
Street "where the old Sears
store was" some years later.
(The quotes are Earl Black-
burn's.)
G.W, Blackburn's brother
was Benjamin Franklin Black-
burn -who settled in the area
of Warm Mineral Springs,
where he raised three boys
and a girl.
Bacon's daughter Cornelia
married Earl's father, the son
of Benjamin Franklin Black-
burn. Together they had two
sons and a daughter. Earl's
father died in 1943 when Earl
was just 12.
When Earl was out of
school, he got a job with the'
Florida Power & Light Com-
pany, eventually working his
way up to supervisor. He was
with FPL for 37 years. .
As a young FPL employee,
Blackburn met Elaine, a nurse
from Iowa, and the couple
had three children two girls
who live in North Carolina a
son who still lives in this area.
Blackburn said the Iowa
folks weren't quite sure what
to expect of the Florida
"cracker" their daughter was
marrying.
Judging by the wedding
picture on the wall of the
Blackburn house, they gained
a handsome young man in a
black tuxedo as- the bride-
groom for their lovely daugh-
ter.
Soon after they were mar-
ried, Earl's mother presented
them with the piece of prop-
erty on which they would
build their first house. That
was about.1957, he said. They
started small; adding on to it
as the family grew and as they
could afford to.
Elaine was a stay-at-home
momn, taking care of the chil-
dren and also taking care of
Earl's mother Cornelia until
she died at the age of 87 in
1983 or so. Cornelia Black-
burn is buried in Osprey,
behind the Baptist Church,
Earl said. Earl's grandfather,
B.E Blackburn is buried near
Mary's Chapel in the little


The entrance to the house is at the side.


cemetery at Historic Spanish
Point.,
When not adding on to the
house or working at FPL, Earl
also was becoming known for
his swamp cabbage cooking
abilities and for his barbecue.
Blackburn ran a popular bar-
becue business for many
years and still cooks up
enough swamp cabbage and
barbecue to feed some 1,200
people for the Sarasota Old-
Timers picnic each year, he
said.
"There's a lot of cabbage
available but getting some-
one to cut it is the problem,"
he said. "I need to take a
bunch of boys out to teach.
Roy Crowley taught me how
to cut it in the '40s."
Swamp cabbage is made
from the heart of the cabbage
palm. Florida's native tree.
Blackburn said that one 5- to
10-year-old tree will yield
enough to feed. about eight
people.
The Old-Timer's picnic is
held at dthe Sarasota County
Fairgrounds. That is another
Blackburn interest. Earl first
got involved with the fair
about 30 years ago. He is in
charge of parking house trail-
ers and spare trucks used by
participants in the fair.
"I started doing it years ago
because no one else wanted
to do it," he said.
Plugging the fair he loves
so much, Blackburn talked
about the fair's set-up days
and all the youngsters who
come in to help. Anyone who
will be showing an animal he
raised has to come in to help
prepare that area of the fair,.
he said.
Blackburn is an encyclope-
dia of the area, growing up
right along with Sarasota
County and then raising his
children in the house he and
Elaine built on Blackburn Bay,
the house they have finally
decided to sell because it is
just too big to care for any-
more now that all the children
have gone.
Beautifully placed under a
canopy of spreading live oaks,
the two-story house sits on
1.5 acres and has spectacular
views of the bay, Casey Key
and each night, the setting


sun.
Blackburn's mother lived
in the upstairs apartment for
years. There are three bed-
rooms, two baths, kitchen,
dining room and living room
on the main floor. Also on die
main floor is a front porch
that extends along the full
width of the 3.947-square-
foot house facing the bay.
"We added on four timess"
Elaine. said. "The porch is the
best thing we ever did. I wish
we had added that to the
house first."
Sometime they ha e fami-
ly meals out there but it is
always available for enjoying
the view of boat traffic on the
bay, pleasant breezes and die
sunsets. Dolphins are a com-
mon site. The dock is straight
out from the. house, which
also has an outdoor shower, a
handy place to clean up after
gardening or fishing in the
bay. Over the years, thdie family
has caught stone crabs, blue
crabs, snook and red fish off
the dock or by \wading out in
the bay. You can fish from the
dock without a license, they
said.
"We are 13 feet above the
bay," Earl said. "There used to
be scallops in the bay but all
that fresh water killed the
scallops."
The house actually sits on
one of the highest "bluffs"
around, at an elevation of
13.5-feet, listing Realtor
Kimberly Gavreau-Wallace
said.
In addition to the house
which is at the western end of
a long driveway off Bayshore
Road in Nokomis, there is a
workshop and a shed. There
is no pool but there is plenty
of room for one. There also is
enough land that there could
be two houses on the site. '
"It can be split north and
south," Gauvreau-Wallace
said about the property, "with
one house on the bay and one
on the road."
What can't be split is the
history. Blackburns were early
settlers in Sarasota County,
giving their name to the bay
and Blackburn Point and
Blackburn Road and many
other things and places. That
the family maintained a pres-

from the family homestead where they have lived all their
married lives to a smaller house nearby.


The Blackburn home has a dock extending out into Blackburn
Bay, from which one can catch a variety of fish.

After 71 years, they still laugh


BY RACHEL ALEXANDER
STAFF WRITER


Laughter is the best medi-
cine.
At least that appears to be
the case with Ernest and
Vivian Cope, who are 93 and
92 respectively, and who cele-
brated 71 years of marriage
June 5 at River Oaks retire-
ment community.
"They have a great, great
sense of humor, both of
them," said Pam Polowski, the
manager of Rier Oaks.
That became evident as
soon as Vivian was asked how
they stayed together so long.
"That's a long time to live
with one man, isn't it?" she
said with a laugh. "I never had
thoughts of divorcing him,
but I wanted to kill him a few
times.
"We had our ups and
downs, but we had a good
marriage," she added with a
more serious tone. "We both
worked at it."
Ernest, born to a Quaker
family, and Vivian, a black:
smith's daughter, both grew
up in town with a popila-
tion of about 60.
"Near Youngstown, Ohio,"
Vivian said. "Columbiana."
"Where Harvey Firestone
was born," Ernest added.
In keeping with their back-
grounds, the couple are able
to manage their differences at
a humorous level.
"They're really funny/,the
way they give each other the
jabs," Polowski said. "They're
really cute. They're really fun-
ny to listen to."
Ernest made his living as a
parts manager for car dealer-
ships and Vivian was a stay-
lln'eITdi. ,., .

WELL-BEING


Celebrating 100 years of teaching Americans to swim


South County Family YMCA helps in fight
against obesity.


BY CYNTHIA STUBBINS
GUEST WRITER


Summer is upon us, mean-
ing children and families in
Venice and Englewood are
beginning to daydream about
warm summer days spent at
the beach, lake, water park or
pool. While swimming is an
ideal activity for families, pro-
viding fun in the sun and
quality time spent together, it
is also an important tool in
the ongoing fight against ris-
ing levels of obesity in the.
United States. Known as


"America's Favorite Swim
Instructor," YMCAs this year
celebrate 100 years of teach-
ing Americans not only how
to swim, but also how to
maintain health and wellness
in spite of our busy lives.
With nearly 60 million
adults and 9 million children
obese or overweight, increas-
ing levels of physical fitness
for children and families has
becomes of increasing
importance in the Venice and
Englewood communities.
Learning how to swim is not
only an important part of


growing up, but it is also a fun
form of exercise and a great
first step in preparing kids for
a lifetime commitment to
physical fitness. Swimming is
an ideal form of exercise
because it tones the entire
body while providing an
excellent cardiovascular
workout, and strengthens the
heart muscle while improving
delivery of oxygen to muscles.
Since 1906, when George
Corsan, a Detroit YMCA fit-
ness instructor, revolution-
ized the way people learned
how to swim, YMCA aquatics
staff have been unrivaled in
their training and expertise.
Today, with more than 2,000
pools across the country,
YMCAs are the place where
Americans go to find the most


trusted instructors of swim-
ming lessons and lifeguard
training. Tens of millions of
people across the United
States have learned how to
swim at the YMCA, including
Olympic medalists Mark
Spitz, Greg Louganis and
Janet Evans, as well as
President Ronald Reagan.
Swimming lessons provide
children with essential skills
to be safe in and around
water. In addition to building
character and self-confi-
dence, children learn about
leadership, safety and rescue
skills and water activities.
These important survival
skills allow parents and chil-
dren to enjoy a lifetime of
both fun and healthy activity
at pools, beaches and water


parks.
Swimming is also an ideal
exercise for baby boomers
and other older adults who
want to maintain their fit-
ness, but may need to give up
high-impact or repetitive-
motion activities such as run-
ning, cycling and aerobics.
YMCAs also offer water fit-
ness classes and competitive
swim programs for youth and
adults.
This year, the South
County Family YMCA's two
locations are set to help chil-
dren and families ring in the
swim season by providing
water safety education,
swimming lessons and other
fun aquatics programs, avail-
able to all ages from babies
to senior citizens. In addition


to swim lessons, the South
County FamilyYMCA offers a
variety of programs designed
to help kids and families get
fit and stay healthy this sum-
mer, including: swimming
lessons, Sharks swim team,
aquatic exercise classes and
summer camp programs.
At the South County
Family YMCA we build strong
kids, strong families, strong
communities. YMCAs serve
20.1 million people, including
9.7 million children, through
a broad range of programs.
YMCAs are for people of all
faiths, races, ages, incomes
and abilities. Financial assis-
tance is available. Visit

glewood.org.

Dave Barry celebrates the mothers of invention


i. ,L f -"
DAVE BARRY


This classic DaveBarry
column was originally pub-
lished Sept. 1, 1996.


Cathey thought up the long-
overdue idea of a "briefcase
aquarium." I assume this
would be an aquarium that
had a handle so you could
carry it around with you; thus
if you were stuck in, for exam-
ple, a company meeting
wherein your boss was dron-
ing away about improving
product quality, you could
pass the time productively by
watching your fish swim
around and poop.
Another one of Demers'
friends, Richard Jeanne, had a


fine idea for improving the
quality of the motoring expe-
rience. You know those irritat-
ing drivers who leave their
turn signals blinking, some-
times all the way from New
York to Cleveland, slowly dri-
ving you insane? This irrita-
tion would be eliminated by
Jeanne's idea for a new, im-
proved turn signal: "After 15
seconds, the car will auto-
matically turn in the direction
indicated by the signal."
Wouldn't that be great? It
would remove at least 200,000


drivers from the road in Mi-
ami alone.
Speaking of irritations:
Have you noticed that more
people seem to be paying for
everything everything -
with credit cards? Last winter,
I waited in a long ticket line
outside a movie theater near
Detroit on a bitterly cold
night for what seemed like
hours because many people
were charging their $3.50
movie tickets. Each of these
purchases had to be approv-
ed by a central computer;


meanwhile, the movie was
starting, and people in the
ticket line were keeling over
from frostbite and being
dragged off to the parking lot
by wolves.
I have invented a way to
prevent this kind of thing: For
credit-card purchases under
$20, the central computer
would add an Annoyance
Charge, which would be
based on the number of peo-
ple waiting in line, air tem-
perature and other factors.
("OK, that's two tickets to


'Flipper'; with your senior-cit-
izen discount and your
Annoyance Charge, it comes
to $237,000.") I'll bet you have
some good invention ideas,
too, and I'd love to hear what
they are. But please mail
them in; we cannot accept
phone calls. We're keeping he
line open for margaritas.
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.


People often ask me how
America became the world's
greatest economic power, as
measured in Remote Control
Units Per Household (RCUPH).
My answer is: "Inventions."
I Americans have always
been great inventors, To cite
one historic example: Back in
1879, a young man named
Thomas Alva Edison was try-
ing to develop a new light
source. One day, he was mess-
ing around in his laboratory
with some filaments, when
suddenly a thought struck
him: The letters in "Thomas
Alva Edison" could be re-
arranged to spell "Do Have
Salami Snot." This made him
so depressed that he invented
the phonograph, so-he could
listen to B.B. King records.
SA more recent example of
American inventiveness is
"Buffalo-style" chicken wings.
For many years, nobody ate
chicken wings, and for a good
reason: They're inedible. They
are essentially, meat-free
bones. You might as well chew
on a plate of toenails. But one
day a shrewd restaurant own-
er came up with the idea of
serving the wings "Buffalo-
style," which means "to peo-
ple who have been drinking
beer." It is a known fact that
beer-drinkers will eat pretty ,
much' anything. Ekhibtt 'Al&s'
"SlimJims." j' -
You could put a dish of salt-
ed mothballs in front of beer
drinkers, and they would
snork them up. So chicken
wings were an instant hit.
Today, "Buffalo-style" chicken
wings are served in restau-
rants all over the nation. The
waitperson brings out a plate
of bones, the customers gnaw
on them for a while, and then
the waitperson takes them

back to the kitchen, where
they're run through the dish-
washer and placed on a plate
for the next set of customers
to gnaw on. A restaurant can
sell the same set of "Buffalo-
style" wings hundreds of
times; this provides a big
boost to the economy, and it
is easier on the chickens.
And speaking of modern
inventions, let's talk about the
incredible convenience of cel-
lular phones, especially for
motorists. Years ago, when
you were driving, you wasted
your time on such non-pro-
ductive activities as listening
to the radio, steering, etc. But
now, using your cellular
phone, you can engage in
productive conversations:
"Hello, Ted? Can you hear me?
Hello? Ted? Can you ... Hello?
Ted? Can ... Hello?" As a safety
bonus, you can also use your
cellular phone to call for an
ambulance after you rear-end
somebody: "Hello? 911? Can
you hear ... Hello?"
The exciting thing is, at this
very moment, Americans are
thinking up inventions that
could improve our lifestyles
even more. For example, a
while back I received a letter
from a research scientist (un-
fortunately, I lost the letter, so
I can't give you his name) who
told me that he and some
other research scientists were
working on developing a sys-
tem for I believe this is how
he worded it "transmitting
frozen margaritas over ordi-
nary telephone lines." I speak
for Americans everywhere
when I say: Let's track these
scientists down and give them
a large federal grant.
I received another letter.
which I managed not.to lose,
from alert reader Dick Dem-
ers, who told me about some
inventions that he and his
friends had conceived of. For
example, his friend James
