Airport board recommends arena demolition


Calling it an eyesore, the board members want
the city to pursue all possible avenues to finance
the removal of the crumbling landmark at the
likely entrance to the airport business park.


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR


The city of Venice Airport
Advisory Board has given
voice to a thought on the
mind of many local residents:
tear down the Circus Arena.
The board unanimously ,
passed a resolution at its reg-
ular meeting Wednesday rec-
ommending city council
investigate all sources of rev-
enue to accomplish the task,
including the use of 1-cent


sales surtax funds.
Those funds typically are
used to pay for the construc-
tion of public amenities, but
board member Jim Leis, who
also sits on the city's tax over-
sight committee, said he had
confirmed with City Manager
Marty Black that the demoli-
tion of the arena would quali-
fy for them.
According to city council
member John Simmonds, the
liaison to the board, the reso-
lution will be going to a


receptive audience.
"I think it's a given that that
building is coming down," he
said, noting that it's at the
projected entrance to the
city's proposed airport busi-
ness park.
The key to doing some-
thing about the arena has
been and still is money.
A city report prepared several
years ago concluded the
demolition of the arena and
disposal of the. wreckage
would cost about $500,000.
Rather than spend the
money, the city had been
hoping a someone would
include the demolition as
part of a development pro-
.posal. That hasn't happened,
and the cost has risen.


Board member Bart Bar-
tanowicz said Airport. Man-
ager Fred Watts now puts the
figure close to. $800,000,
much of it due to the pres-
ence of asbestos in the build-
ing.
History
The board doesn't have the
authority to do more than
make a recommendation to
council, but the members felt
it was important at least to do
that.
"I think we need to send
the message that we are all in
agreement the whole town
is," said member John Yuro-
sko.

Good morning, Gondolier
Sun subscriber,
DAN MALCOM


It wa's a clean sweep for the
Sarasota County School
District this year. In addition
to seeing improvement on
FCATs at nearly every grade
level in most subjects,
Sarasota County this week
learned it also earned higher
school-level grades from the
state.
On Wednesday the Florida
Department of Education
released its school grades.
For the first time, every ele-
mentary school and middle
school in Sarasota County
earned an 'A" or "B." In the
past, either all elementary
schools earned an "A" or "B"
grade, or all middle schools
earned an "'A"or "B," but never

before have all schools, ex-
cluding charter schools, at
both levels earned the desig-
nation.
"We are very pleased with
how our students performed,
as reflected in the school
grades," said Associate Super-
intendent Lori White. "It re-
flects the hard work of teach-
ers, students and parents."
Elementary schools went
from 91 percent of schools
earning an 'A" or "B" in 2004-
05 to 100 percent in 2005-06.
Middle schools showed an
astonishing gain. Only 50 per-
cent of middle schools
earned an 'A" or "B" in 2004-
05. That improved to 100 per-
cent in 2005-06.

cially pleased with the perfor-
mance of Venice High and
Phoenix Academy. Both
jumped two grade levels.
Venice High has traded
"B"s and "C"s since the state
began grading its schools
back in 1999. Only once, back
in 2001-02, did it earn an A.
The school jumped from a C
in 2004-05 to an 'A" in 2005-
06, according to the latest
DOE report.
"That's a very significant
gain," White said. "We're
exceptionally pleased with
that."
PhoenixAcademy, a school
for struggling eighth- and
ninth-graders, received an F
in 2004-05. The failing grade
required the reconstitution of
the school.
Teachers had to reinter-
view for their positions and
supplemental salaries were
offered to attract superior

One of those election year
issues that has historically
inspired Sarasota County
politicians to duck and cover,
and neighborhood advocates
to cry "Not in my back yard!"
is back. Sheriff Bill Balkwill
wants new detention facilities
because the downtown jail is
full.
"A study was done about
three years ago," said Maj.
,Daryl Stinger, the sheriff's
division commander for cor-
rections and court services.,
"It concluded our jail would
reach maximum occupancy
in another five to 10 years. But
things have changed."
The changes include a
tougher state policy on arrests
for parole violations, and an
increase in the number of
South County arrests from
expanding 'areas such as
North Port. They have filled
the. downtown jail to capacity
and there is no expectation of
relief in sight.
What Balkwill wants is a
new mid-county booking
facility for arrests and a new
jail for sentenced prisoners,
who currently fill about 20
percent of the beds. The
wheels have already started to
turn, but what remains to be
seen is how long it will take
for county commission
action.
"Last week, we had our first
preliminary meeting with
officials who will be involved
in this process," Stinger said.
"It focused on new jail con-
struction and a site search.
Now it's a matter of more
meetings, where to put it and
what it will look like."
Downtown
There is an urgency driving
Balkwill's request that is sup-


ported by hard numbers. On
Monday, 1,020 of the 1,050 jail
beds were occupied. Given
the county's rate of growth
there is a reasonable expecta-
tion the num-
ber of. arrests
will continue
to increase.
"We'd pre-
fer single-
story facilities
for prisoner
intake and ,
housing, "
Stinger said. Balkwill
"Our down-
town jail is a high-rise build-
ing that presents safety chal-
lenges because of elevators
and stairways. Some of the
sites we considered. eight
years ago could still be in the
mix."
In 1998, the county com-
mission went through an
election year exercise in futili-
ty when it considered poten-
tial jail sites, listened to com-
plaints from Laurel area resi-
dents who felt threatened and
finally agreed to a 329-bed
downtown jail addition.
The decision became a
county budget nightmare. A
$15.7 million price tag for
what was to be a new jail on
publicly owned land next to
the Laurel area landfill was
bumped up to $18.6 million
because of site constraints
and construction challenges
in the downtown area.
Then a dispute with the
contractor erupted over plan
changes. It drove the bottom
line up to more than $25 mil-
lion and forced the county
into a protracted legal media-
tion process. A county project
supervisor was fired and work
fell almost two years behind
schedule.

When Hurricane Donna

10, 1960, three people died.
When Hurricane Rita headed
toward Houston last year,
137 people died while evacu-

heat strokes while inside

Texas expected 700,000 to

ber did. Many families used
two or more vehicles.

we try hurricane trains.

"Here everyone benefits, and

schedule may be good for the
average student, but not for
high-performing students.
That's the conclusion of one
Venice parent with hopes to
modify the school's current
block schedule.
Irene Gilson, whose
daughter will be a junior at
Venice High later this year,
found out the hard way that
block scheduling has its lim-
itations.
Her daughter is now having
to make a tough choice about
whether to continue partici-
pating in chorus, a class she
loves, or take Advanced Place-
ment courses, to boost her
credits.
It could make the differ-
ence in getting into a better
school, or trimming under-.
class requirements (and asso-


ciated costs).
She's rather do both, but
Venice High's block schedule
doesn't allow it, Gilson says.
Two years ago, when the
Gilsons first moved to Venice,
the family faced a similar
decision. At that time, her
honors-student son, then a
junior, chose instead to attend
Pine View because it offered
more AP credits.
Gilson asked Venice High
Principal Candace Milling-
ton for a review of block
scheduling at the school's
last School Action Commit-
tee meeting to see if the
school can accommodate
honors students who want to
boost credits.
Millington agreed to re-
view the' schedule, but gave
no timeline. ,
Even if Gilson is successful,
changes wouldn't be imple-
mented .until the 2007-08
school year..


Block scheduling popular
I Block scheduling is the most
popular high school education
reform in the last 30 years,
and is growing every year.
The Sarasota -County
School Board made the deci-
sion this year to place all
county high schools on some
form of block schedule for
the next academic year.
Venice High moved from
its traditional schedule of
seven 45-minute classes to
four 90-minute blocks about
six years ago.
Historically, honors parents
have put up the most opposi-
tion to changing the tradition-
al schedule that has worked
well for their children. Ditto
for supporters of music pro-
grams, since block scheduling
can diminish participation.
It's the reason Venice High's
music programs are dispro-
portionately full of under-
classmen, according to Gilson.


The vast majority of educa-
tors like teaching only three
classes per day, versus five or
six under a traditional school
day.
The dilemma is twofold,
according to Gilson: One,
honors students cannot take
the full compliment of re-
quired AP courses and music
without having to resort to
online instruction; two, the
full-year two-credit AP cours-
es taught at Venice High cover
the same material as single-
semester AP classes taught at
other schools.
Limitations
In a letter to Millington dat-
ed June 5, Gilson called the
current schedule detrimental
to honors students and music
programs.
"When 4-by-4 block sched-
uling was introduced, all de-
partment except music
agreed that all academic cours-


es could be taught in half-year,
85-minute periods. When it
became apparent
that AP courses could not be'
taught in half a year, the advan-
tages of block scheduling were
lost, and the school should
have returned to traditional
scheduling or some modified
block scheduling to accommo-
date honor students," Gilson
wrote.
SAfter reading in the Gon-
dolier Sun how Riverview
High School plans to imple-
ment a modified block sched-
ule next year with eight 45-
minute periods, some com-
bined into block scheduling
- Gilson became convinced
Venice High's existing block
schedule could be tweaked in
the same manner.
"I was excited by their ini-
tiative to accommodate the
AP and music requirements. I
called Riverview High school,
and learned that all their AP


and music courses will be
taught in one 45-minute peri-
od. Why do Venice High stu-
dents need 90 minutes for the
same exact AP course? That's
twice as much of their school-
ing devoted to the same mate-
rial," Gilson said.
"Students should not have
to devote one quarter of their
schooling to music. Riverview
students will only be devoting
one-eighth of their education
to music, allowing their stu-
dents more options. Options
are good. They provide a
more rounded education."
Gilson said students and
parents don't usually realize
the limitations of block sched-
uling until 11th grade.
"Freshman honors and mu-
sic students need to under-
stand how limiting a VHS edu-
. cation is under by 4-by-4 block
scheduling .to make informed
choices about where they
should attend high school."


School board seeking continued funding for two programs


BY RACHEL BROWN HACKNEY
PELICAN PRESS

The Sarasota County School
Board is hoping the Florida
Department of Education will
continue to pro-vide funding
for a district drug and violence
prevention program as well as
an effort that has improved
educational opportunities for
homeless children.
By unanimous vote at the
June 6 meeting, the five board
members approved two grant
applications to be sent to the
state.
The first, for $138,422,
would allow district officials,
in cooperation with Sarasota
County Government and the
health department, to contin-
ue a focus on discouraging


tobacco, alcohol and other
drug use among students and
teaching them how to handle
tense situations without re-
sorting to violence.
The second grant applica-
tion, for $120,000, would
continue a collaboration with
the Sarasota County YMCA
to provide case managers to
serve as liaisons among the
school district, community
agencies and homeless fami-
lies living in five area shelters.
Sherri Reynolds, supervisor
of pupil support services for
the district, told the board
that the local Safe and Drug
Free Schools program had
incorporated a number of new
initiatives over the past several
years. She also related numer-
ous statistics from student sur-


veys that have been given to
middle and high school stu-
dents in the district since 1997.
In a telephone interview,
Reynolds pointed out that the
district alternates between
the two age groups in its, an-
nual surveys. This year, sixth-
and eighth-graders answered
the questions. Last year, all
ninth- and 11th-graders were
surveyed.
Comparing middle school
student answers from the
1999-2000 school year to
those from the surveys given
in the 2003-2004 school year,
Reynolds noted the follow-
ing:,
The percentage of stu-
dents reporting they had
tried smoking cigarettes fell
from 38 percent to 29 percent.

said. "(They are) invisible to

Regarding the program,
she told the Pelican Press, "I
think it's made a huge differ-
ence for the children and.
their families."
She expects to learn in
August or September whether
the latest grant applications
have been approved.

SARASOTA COUNTY BRIEFS


Workshops on June on
Master Trail Plan
Sarasota County Public
Works will hold two more
public workshops in June on
the final draft of the Sarasota
County Master Trail Plan.
The plan calls for the
development of a countywide
trail system over the next 20
years.
Major components of the
plan include a system of both
land and water trails, and
connections among major
recreational areas, environ-
mental areas, residential
areas, commercial and em-
ployment centers and public
transportation.
The master plan provides
trails for pedestrians, bicy-
clists nonmotorizedd), eques-
trians, canoeists and kayak-
ers, with minimal interaction
between the trails and public
or private roads.
-- Ae dcfivorkshop, displays
of the plan will be exhibited,
along with information about
the county,s Environmentally
Sensitive Lands Protection
Program, Parks and Recre-
ation and the Neighborhood
Grants program. County staff
will be available to answer
questions.
No formal presentations
are scheduled; residents can
attend at their convenience
anytime during the work-
shops. Residents' comments
on the plan will be incorpo-
rated into the final draft that
will be presented to the Board
of County Commissioners for
adoption.
The same information will
be available at each of the
four workshops, which will be
held from 4:30-7 p.m.:
Monday, June 19: Selby

County to transmit landfill
wastewater underground
The Sarasota County
Commission approved a
$563,152.80 contract with E. T.
MacKenzie of Florida Inc. to
construct a transmission line
that will move. leachate, or
landfill wastewater, from the
county's landfill in Nokomis
to a city of Venice plant for
treatment.
Leachate is rainwater that
-has filtered through the
garbage buried in the landfill.


The leachate is collected in a
storage tank and currently
transported by tanker trucks.
Because large volumes of
rainfall must be processed as
leachate, as many as 25 to 30
truckloads of leachate are
hauled daily six days per week
during the raipy season and
one or two truckloads per day
in the dry season. A truckload
contains 6,000 gallons; 25-30
truckloads equates to roughly
630 tons.
The new transmission line
will eliminate the need to haul
leachate by tanker truck to a
processing plant.
The leachate line and
pump station will consist of a
set of large pumps that will


propel the leachate through
the 4.5-mile line down the
west side of Knights Trail Road
to a county-owned pump sta-
'tion just north of Laurel Road.
From there it will be pumped
to the Venice Eastside Plant for
treatment. The county's land-
fill, as an industrial customer
of the city of Venice, will pay
for processing the leachate.
Engineers on this project
predict there will be minimal
traffic interruption because all
construction will occur
beyond the pavement. Road
and driveway crossings will be
done by directional bore
under the roads and .drive-
ways, further minimizing dis-
ruption.


STAFF REPORT

It took 28 years for the
Berlin Wall to come tumbling
down.
It might take longer for
some of the new develop-
ments along State Road 776
to take down their walls in
deference to dirt berms and
landscaping.
This is the reality for devel-
opers who are building and
for the motorists who view
the walls with disdain.
Barbara Nichols spoke be-
fore the Sarasota ,County
commissioners recently to
offer her opinion of the new
Hebblewhite Court wall
across from the Boca Royale
development.
She wondered why the
county was allowing the wall
when there was a restriction
on eyesores along the entire
length of S.R. 776 in Sarasota
and Charlotte counties.
The reality is a developer
who builds without the need
to rezone the property to
conform with newer regula-
tions need only comply with
standard building. rules -
walls and all.
"I thought we wanted to
maintain the small-town feel,"
Nichols said. "Some of the
developments are looking
really bad."
Commissioner Shannon
Staub said there is an active
effort to fix the loophole.
"We are going in to try and
fix it," she said.
Sarasota County Adminis-
trator Jim Ley recently said
county staff is already work-


ing on creating some sort of
incentive program that could
have the desired effect.
The squeeze
Gina Hurley lives in Over-
brook Gardens and said she
would love it if her communi-
ty didn't have a wall.
The wall there is an old
wooden fence that runs north
from Forked Creek.
"I hate walls, but if I lived
really close to
the highway, I ,
might like
them," Hurley
said. .
Walls do
serve a pur- '
pose for the
developers. ,. ',
They. allow
developers to Staub
squeeze as
many homes or buildings on a
small piece of property and
still allow the security of com-
munity and less noise than if
there were no wall.
Communities built after a
rezoning can achieve the
same result by building a dirt
berm with some landscaping.
The right type of berm and
landscaping can be as effec-
tive as a wall and can be less
of an eyesore for the people
on the other side who have to
either drive or walk by.
The new Oak Forest sub-
division is an example of
what the new guidelines can
offer.
While the community has
limited access, it has no wall
and landscaping in front.
The reason most develop-


ers opt for the wall is to maxi-
mize their space.
Earth berms can require a
lot of land to construct, espe-
cially if they are very tall.
According to the Federal
Highway Administration, they
.also reduce noise by approxi-
mately 3 decibels more than
vertical walls of the same
height.
The corridor
Getting something in place
soon, before many more de-
velopments are built without
some more oversight, is
deemed critical at a time
when Sarasota and Charlotte
counties are working to cre-
ate a proposed Lemon Bay/
Myakka Trail Scenic Highway.
The corridor starts at U.S.
41 in South Venice and ends
at U.S. 41 in Murdock. It also
includes an Englewood loop
down Old Englewood Road
and Dearborn Street, and a
Cape Haze loop, which en-
compasses all of county roads
775 and 771.
The State Road 776 Cor-
ridor Advocacy Group is
spearheading that effort.
Both Sarasota and Char-
lotte counties have made
acquiring the scenic highway
designation, goals in their
respective S.R. 776 corridor
plans.
"I really thought the corri-
dor plan would have helped
prevent walls like that from
happening," Nichols said.
"Certain concepts have not
been followed through."

Septic tank replacement cost climbing toward $180 million


Project estimates have steadily gone up since the
project was approved in 1999. A recent spike in
the price of cement, plastic and steel is the latest
cost factor.


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

It appears the Sarasota
County utility project to
replace about 15,000 septic
tanks with central sewer ser-
-vice in the Phillippi Creek
drainage basin could double
original cost estimates and
exceed $180 million before
work is completed in 2014.
On June 6, the county
commission briefly discussed
"huge cost increases" with
George MacFarlane, the
county's enterprise opera-
tions general manager, and
considered the possibility
that some neighborhoods
with large lots might be ex-


cluded to shave expenses.
"We are seeing significant
changes in the cost of con-
crete, plastic and steel every
day," MacFarlane told the
Pelican Press, "and the prices
continue to climb. Late last
year, we projected the build-
out number could reach $161
million. But that will probably
have to be revised."
In 1999, when the county
pressed former Utilities Di-
rector Ed Goscicki for a pro-
ject estimate, he suggested
the figure could range from
"$70 million to $120 million."
The numbers have fluctuated
since then from $93 million to
$104 million to $121 million
to $161 million.


"We've suggested a 6-per-
cent annual increase to the
county commission for bud-
geting purposes," MacFarlane
said, "but it would be applied
to a smaller balance as work
in areas is finished. The way
things are going, I wouldn't
argue with the possibility of a
$180 million figure."
Out of service
One way the county could
shave costs over the next
eight years would to exempt
property owners with lots of
an acre or more from having
to hook up. The caveat would
be that all large lot owners in
a project area must have
upgraded septic systems.
"The standards for septic
tank installations were re-
vised in 1983," MacFarlane
said. "If the owners agree to
upgrade., their systems to
post-'83 standards it might be
a way to save some money.


But if they don't all agree, we'd
have to run sewer lines."
Since the county commis-
sion gave a green light to
launch the ambitious pro-
gram in 1999, the assumption
has been that about 14,000
North County septic tanks
would be taken out of service.
The figure now being used for
budgeting purposes is 15,384.
Crews have steadily been
installing new sewer lines in
area increments, but recently
ran into trouble in the DeSoto
Lakes community when Wat-
er Equipment Services and its
bonding company, Cincin-
nati Insurance, stopped work
because of a contract dispute
with the county.
Late last week, the county
commission signed an emer-
gency contract with E.T. Mac-
Kenzie of Florida to finish
work in what is known as
"Area A' so that 1,125 proper-
ty owners can hook up to


sewer service. The firm re-
cently completed "Area F"
south of Bee Ridge Road.
Millions
Since 1991, the county has
been under a state order to
replace septic tanks that pol-
lute Phillippi Creek and Sara-
sota Bay with a sewage collec-
tion system. 'It has faced a
tough challenge securing fed-
eral and state grants to help
reduce costs for local proper-
ty owners.
To help with expenses, $28
million of county sales-tax
revenue has been pledged to
the project. In addition, lob-
byists in Washington, D.C.,
and Tallahassee have been
pursuing grants, while $3 mil-
lion recently allocated by
state lawmakers is waiting to
be approved by Gov. Jeb Bush.
The county's goal has been
to obtain $18 million from
Congress and $18 million


from the Florida Legislature.
So far, federal lawmakers
have allocated $4.5 million
and state lawmakers $2.5 mil-
lion. Bush has twice vetoed
state grants that were ap-
proved by the Legislature.
In 2001, work began in
what is known as Area E,
which includes the Oyster
Bay area south of Bee Ridge
Road and west of U.S. 41. Of
the 577 homes and business-
es, about 480 have been
hooked up. Two other areas
are also substantially com-
plete.
Four neighborhoods cur-
rently in design phases
include Area K with 2,650
homes in Sarasota Springs
and Forest Lakes, Area D in
South Gate with 1,500, and
Area C in Pinecraft with 700.
Area N south of Bee Ridge
Road and east of Lockwood
Ridge Road will follow with
2,000.


Final arguments heard in Solomon House case


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

When Gulf of Mexico
waves damaged, and Sarasota
County demolition crews
removed, what remained of
late Sarasota artist Syd Solo-
mon's landmark Turtle Beach
home, it wasn't the final chap-
ter in a controversy that dates
back more than 20 years.
On June 8, Circuit Court
Judge Becky Titus heard clos-
ing arguments in a case
brought by Siesta Key resi-
dent Nancy Burns Stratton,
who bought the former
Solomon House in 2001 and
was thwarted in efforts to
save it by several county com-
mission decisions.
Stratton brought an in-
verse condemnation claim
against the county and charg-
ed that commissiiondecisions,
to: 1) deny a historic designa-
tion; and 2) deny a protective
seawall combined to result in
an illegal taking of her land
and home.
"Our lawsuit sets it out,"
said Bill Moore, a Sarasota
attorney who is representing
Stratton. "We're saying the
county decisions resulted in a.
taking of her property, while
the county is saying it was
exercising police powers and
following its codes."


Titus will be on vacation
until the end of next week,
then take several more weeks
to review depositions from
expert witnesses and trial
outlines that provide a history
of events that began to unfold,
when Solomon still owned
and occupied the house in
the early 1980s.
History
Solomon, a renowned con-
temporary artist who suc-
cumbed to Alzheimer's dis-
ease in 2004, built his twin-
towers home with a connect-
ing pedestrian bridge in the
early 1970s. It was designed
by architect Gene Leedy in
the distinctive Sarasota
School of Architecture style.
In 1983, Solomon and his
neighbor to the south, the late
Pasco Carter Jr., battled with
the coCnty 'to "save their"
,homes after M.'idhight Pass
became unstable and migrat-
ed northward. After their
dredging efforts to relocate
the inlet southward failed, the
county allowed it to be sealed.
Dr. J. Gordon and Phyllis
Rubin bought the Solomon
house at 9210 Blind Pass Road
and tried to save it when the
south Siesta Key shoreline
eroded. They applied for a
historic designation that
would have exempted them


from stiff federal regulations
on coastal construction.
On March 27, 2001, the
county's Historic Preserva-
tion Board recommended a
designation. Five weeks later,
on May 4, 2001, .Stratton
bought the house from the
Rubins and attempted to fin-
ish what they had started. She
pursued the historic designa-
tion and a coastal variance for
repairs.
A public hearing before the
county commission was
advertised for July 10, 2001,
continued until Oct. 9, and
finally held 'on Dec. 11.
CountyAdministrator Jim Ley
and Building Inspector Jerry
Sparks testified, but Stratton
and her attorney were not
allowed to speak.
The commission turned
down the historic designation
request, 'which-'would- have
exempted Stratton from fed-
eral regulations that required
her to elevate the two tower
structures on piers, and
would have allowed her to
spend more than 50 percent
of the structure's market value
on repairs.
Double standard?
Moore described Stratton's
efforts in a 382-page lawsuit
filed with the circuit court on
June 18, 2004, and noted that


all her Blind Pass Road neigh-
bors who applied for coastal
setback variances to protect
threatened homes received
them.

neighbors were also allowed
to install sandbags and rock
revetments in front of their
homes, while she was not,
and that a half dozen of them
received commission permis-
sion for a misplaced seawall
that did not conform with
approved plans.
Meanwhile, the county
placed a lien on Stratton's
property to recover the dem-
olition expenses it incurred
when it bulldozed both por-
tions of her house, and will
attempt to take the property

rules against her claim.
If Stratton prevails, she will

ment decisions can diminish
the value of property, and
provides owners with legal
avenues to recoup.

JAIL from Pag, !A
$83,000 per bed
In 1998, a consulting firm
identified new jail sites that
included: 1) the Laurel area
landfill; 2) the Celery Fields
near 1-75 and Palmer Boul-
evard; 3) downtown Sarasota;
4) Fruitville Road 2 miles east
of 1-75; 5) Fruitville Road 9
miles east of 1-75; and 6) Clark
Road 2 miles east of 1-75.
While all had political lia-
bilities because of unhappy
neighbors, the least con-
tentious appeared to be the
landfill site because it was iso-
lated.
But a group of unhappy
residents who lived miles
away lobbied against it when
several commissioners were
running for re-election.
Former Sheriff Geoff
Monge came to their rescue
in May 1998 when he pro-


posed an expansion of the
existing 717-bed jail with a
200-bed addition, a recom-
mendation the commission
later expanded to more than
300 beds with the difference
to be financed by housing
federal inmates.
Along the way, costs went
through the roof, the project
fell almost two years behind
schedule, and the county got
into a public war of words
over expenses with the con-
tractor Dooley and Mack
Constructors that finally
had to be settled through
mediators.
When the dust had settled,
the final bill for new jail beds
- with the mediated settle-
ment and lost federal income
due to construction delays
factored in was more than
$7.7 million over budget and
cost taxpayers about $83,000
for each bed.

staff. The changes culminated
in a C grade in 2005-06, "a sig-
nificant jump for that school,"
White said.
Riverview High also
improved a grade. Other high
schools maintained their
grade from the previous year.
In South County, Pine View
maintained its "A," while
North Port High maintained
its "C" grade.
Middle
Venice Middle improved
from a "B" to an 'A." With the
exception of 2004-05, the
school has maintained an "A"
grade. Heron Creek Middle in
North Port jumped from a "C"
to an "A."
Venice's Student Leader-,
ship Academy, a charter
school, went from a "C" to an
"A."
Elementary
In South County, Toledo
Blade Elementary improved
from a "B" to an 'A."
Both Garden Elementary
in Venice and Cranberry*
Elementary in North Port


dropped a grade, from an "A"
to a "B."
Both have maintained an
"A" grade over the past six
years. In both cases, the lower
grade was due to a specific
group of students in a specific
core subject.
To receive an "A", a school
must show that more than 50
percent of its lowest perform-
ers (those in the lowest 25
percentile) showed some
form of learning gains on
FCATs. Both schools were
unable to show 50 percent of
their lowest performers made
gains in the area of reading.
"You can't afford to not
(address low performers)"
under the state's grading sys-
tem, White said. "It's an
important group to pay atten-
tion to."
Overall points earned for
both schools, however, were
higher than some preceding
years when the schools
received an "A' grade.

Envision Venice honored at Orlando conference


The Florida Planning and
Zoning Association recog-
nized the city of Venice and
Wade Trim Inc. as the recipi-
ents of the Award of Merit for
Innovation for "Envision Ven-
ice: 2006 Evaluation and Ap-


praisal Report" on June 9 at its
annual conference in
Orlando.
The project won because it
"encapsulated the communi-
ty's needs, concerns and
vision. In doing so, the project


emulates the best standards,
processes and spirit of the
planning profession."
Envision Venice was a col-
laborative effort between city
officials and staff, the plan-
ning consultant and commu-


nity members. This partner-
ship maximized public input
and involvement in the city's
2006 planning assessment
process.

ARENA from Page IA


In fact, the board wanted
to make clear it sees just one
future for the old circus win-
:er headquarters.
"I want the would 'demol-
ish,' said member Susie
Balsinger when the first mo-
ion on the subject left open
the possibility of renovation.
"I want it scraped off the
Earth. That's the only thing
that will improve that proper-
ty."
The arena was built by the
city on airport property in the
early 1960s after Ringling,
Bros. and Barnum & Bailey
agreed to lease it and make
Venice the circus' winter


home.
The arrangement contin-
ued for about 30 years, until
the circus pulled out in the
early '90s, citing the poor
condition of the railroad
tracks into Venice that its
trains used.
The city refused to fund
repair work, so the circus
relocated to the Tampa area.
The arena has been vacant
most of the time since. It
briefly was used for sporting
events, mainly boxing, and a
cafe operated there for a time.
A church-affiliated group
proposed to renovate the
building and convert it into a


youth center, but the project
never came to fruition.
The city's skate park was
located outside the arena
until its operator shut it
down. The city, Sarasota
County and the South County
Family YMCA reached an
agreement to move the park
to the Y, on Center Road, last
year.
The only current use of the
property is by former circus
star Tito Gaona, who runs a
trapeze school on land
between the arena and U.S.
41 Business.
Gaona uses a small build-
ing on the property that for-


merly housed circus animals.
He has started a foundation
to try to preserve the building,
but Bartanowicz said it's
structurally unsound and
needs to go, too.

"This has to be straight-
ened out," Commissioner
Nora Patterson said. "It is
ridiculous. A real estate brok-
er I've known for many years
called me. He went to the
beach at Shell Road over the
weekend and was told by a
uniformed officer with two
guns that he couldn't be
there."
The officer was an off-duty
sheriff's deputy.
"One of the property own-
ers hired a couple of our
deputies to keep people off
their property," explained Lt.
Chuck LeSaltato. "We know
the signs are illegally placed
by the water, but anything
above the high tide line is off
limits."
Public trust
Patterson, a Siesta Key
resident, has met with some
of the Shell Road residents.
"A real lack of considera-
tion has been shown them by
some beach goers who sat in
their front yards, had picnics
and threw cans around," she
said. "This whole situation


needs to be clarified."
At issue is both how far the
public's right to access beach-
es and shore areas extends,
and at what point private
property owners can legally
restrict use of their waterfront
land. It is a complex matter
that scholars have addressed
over the centuries, but is still
difficult to sort out.
When DeMarsh and his
staff analyze these conflicting
interests they will begin with
the Public Trust Doctrine, a
legal concept that relates to
the ownership, protection
and use of natural and cultur-
al resources and that dates
back many centuries.
The concept is based on
the belief that air, running
water, the sea and shores.
are common to. all mankind.
Ownership of these essential
resources is held by the state
in trust for the people, and
the state's responsibility is to
preserve them for public uses.
It recognizes co-existing
interests in trust lands: 1) the
public's right to use and enjoy
them; and 2) private property


rights that may exist in their
use and possession.
While the state may convey
ownership to private parties,
the private interest is sub-
servient to the public interest.
The Public Trust Doctrine
became part of English Com-
mon Law, and United States
courts have routinely applied
it. Many state constitutions,
including Florida's, recognize
the doctrine and apply it to
tidal and navigable waters.
Custom
After DeMarsh and his staff
analyze the doctrine, they will
move on to a 1969 Florida
Supreme Court ruling in the
case of City of Daytona Beach
v. Tona-Rama Inc., which rec-
. ognizes the public can estab-
lish rights to use the dry sand
areas of Florida beaches for
recreational purposes.
Other states among
them Hawaii and New Jersey
address public versus pri-
vate rights to dry sand shore-
line areas in either their con-
stitutions, statutes or land-
mark court rulings, but the


precedent-setting 1969 ruling
is believed to be Florida's
strongest legal statement.
While the Florida Consti-
tution declares that owner-
ship of beaches below mean
high water lines is held by the
state, the high court ruling
determined that custom can
establish the public's right to
use dry sand areas above
mean high water lines.
"What I fear is the possi-
bility that some day private
property owners may try to do
the same thing along beaches
that are really open to the
public such, as Crescent
Beach and Lido Beach as
they are currently trying to do
on Shell Road," Patterson
said.
'"A terrible precedent is
now being set on Shell Road
because the county did not
protect the public's, interest in
a timely fashion," she con-
cluded. "I'm absolutely confi-
dent the public can walk on
wet sand below the mean
high water line, and on dry
sand where people have his-
torically walked."


Board of Zoning Appeals gets reprieve


STAFF REPORT

When county commission-
ers appeal a decision of one of
their own supporting boards
to the circuit court, it is a clear
sign of a problem.
The exact nature of that
problem was a matter of
debate recently.
Sarasota County commis-
sioners decided to have the


county attorney examine op-
tions on how to deal with the
Board of Zoning Appeals.
Some commissioners be-
lieved the appeals board over-
stepped its bounds by revers-
ing recent commission deci-
sions. Those reversals led to
the county's appeal in circuit
court.
The board eventually
agreed to have County At-

- One of "'/'9'
the
unheralded
health.risks that can
result from heavy alcohol
consumption is bone loss. Normally,
adult bones undergo a replacement
process called "remodeling," whereby cells called
osteoclasts break down sections of old bone and
cells known as osteoblasts create new bone to
f 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.

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.

CORRESPONDENT

Dan Dragash is consider-
ing his options. ,
Just last January, he was
extolled by the Nokomis
Area Civic Association as the
"poster child" for revitaliza-
tion along the U.S. 41 com-
mercial corridor. He claims
that now he is being shunned
by NACA and town officials.
His plan to expand the
Nokomis Inn, and Suites on
the highway by adding 27
rooms and 4,900 square feet
of commercial space just to
the north was hailed at
NACA's Jan. 24 meeting as
the first success story of
Nokomis's revitalization.
Two months previously,
the Sarasota County Planning
Commission had voted 5-2
to approve Dragash's peti-
tion. But it expressed reser-
varions about his decision
not to hook up to county
water lines.
The board of county com-
missioners, troubled about
the ability of the inn's well
system to provide sufficient
pressure for fire sprinklers,
and the purity of the well;
water, approved the project.
But approval was granted
only if Dragash used county
water. The inn currently
operates with 21 newly re-
furbished rooms.
"I'm getting documenta-
tion together on the matter,"
said Dragash. "I haven't yet
asked the commission to
schedule a redress of the
issue. But I'm considering it."
Dragash cited a recent

described himself as so

Sharek said groundwater

from the natural filtration
from dirt and rocks. That, he
said, enhances water purity.
A study by a University of
Central Florida professor
found that Sharek's bottled

proved on federal water
purity standards. -

OUR VIEW



High school majors at least a minor good step


Recently Gov. Jeb Bush signed into law a
sweeping new education bill designed
to overhaul our state's education sys-
tem. The plan is to allow high school students
to declare majors and minors as do college
students.
It's the first program of its kind in the
nation and is aimed at improving graduation
rates.
According to Rep. Dan Gelber, D-Miami
Beach, quoted in a recent Associated Press
story, Florida has the worst high school grad-
uation rate in the nation. If that is the case,
we applaud the attempt by lawmakers and
Bush to try something creative to improve
that situation.
But if this statistic is correct, how did we


get to this point?
There are probably many contributing
factors, including the fact that Florida still
lags behind many states in teacher pay,
although we have improved. In recent years
Georgia has been successful in enticing
many Florida teachers to move there for
higher pay.
Another factor is the changing interests of
students as they reach middle and high
school. According to Bush, elementary
school students are making progress, but
many do not stay as interested in education
after they enter in middle and high school.
That could be a product of being teenagers
and all the many distractions that come with
that age.


Allowing the declaration of a major with
an emphasis on subjects that the student
likes, plus a required core curriculum, it is
hoped that graduation rates will improve.
Getting elementary school students really
interested in the subjects of math and sci-
ence at least starts them moving in the right
direction, and it's hoped that interest contin-
ues as they go on to middle and high school.
Then, with choices of majors and minors,
those students who really like math and sci-
ence will have the opportunity to "load up"
their curriculum beyond the basic require-
ment. That could lead to a good result from
the new program and, we hope, encourage
more students to stay in school until they
graduate.


And with thousands of new graduates
with beefed-up courses in math and science
coming out of our colleges, our country will
be better equipped to compete in the global
economy with other countries that have
emphasized those studies.
Some lawmakers don't think the new pro-
gram will help, while others favor it. One
thing is certain, and that is that no one pro-
gram will turn Florida schools around.
There must be a comprehensive approach
that includes higher pay for teachers and, we
believe, less emphasis on standardized tests.
Only time will tell if allowing students to
select majors and minors will help. The will-
ingness to try something new, however, never,
hurts.


Wedding aisle



a slippery slope


MARY KAY RUPPEL
COLUMNIST


It was most interesting to
see how the Senate voted on
the Federal Marriage Amend-
ment. This amendment to the
Constitution was written to
define marriage as a union
between a man and a woman,
thus prohibiting the valida-
tion of same-sex marriages by
judges.
The vote on the Senate
floor was 49 for and 48 against
the proposed amendment,
falling 11 votes short of the 60
required to proceed with an
election-year constitutional
amendment.
This has become a very
contentious and politically
divided issue, with both sides
weighing in. President Bush
confirmed his support of the
adoption of the marriage pro-
tection amendment and Sen.
Ted Kennedy called those
Catholic bishops who are
supporting the amendment
"bigots." Republican Sen.
John McCain expressed his
opposition to the amend-
ment, Republican Congress-
woman Katherine Harris sup-
ported the amendment and
Sen. Bill Nelson voted against
it.
Republican Mitt Romney,
the governor of Massachus-
etts, wrote a letter to all of the
senators imploring ,them to
vote "yes" on the Marriage
Protection Amendment. He
said that as governor of the
state most directly affected by
this amendment, he hopes'
his perspectives encourage
the senate to vote "yes."
He began his letter by say-
ing, "Americans are generous
and kind people. We all
oppose bigotry and dispar-
agement and we all wish to
avoid hurtful disregard of the
feelings of others. But the
debate over same-sex mar-
riage is not a debate over tol-
erance. It is a debate about
the purpose of the institution
of marriage."
I agree with that, but I also
think Romney is naive when
he says that "all" citizens
oppose bigotry and dispar-
agement. There are still bigots
in this country who inadver-
tently incite this climate of


dissatisfaction with the status
quo.
Romney said that "some
argue that our principles of
federalism and local control
require us to leave the issue of
same sex marriage to the
states," which means, as a
practical matter, to state
courts. *
He also wrote, "In order to
protect the institution of mar-
riage, we must prevent it from
being redefined by judges like
those here in Massachusetts
who think that marriage is an
evolving paradigm and that
the traditional definition is
rooted in persistent prejudice
and amounts to invidious dis-
crimination."
If one agrees with Romney,
it appears that .without the
constitutional amendment to
ban same-sex marriage, we
will end up with a chaotic
patchwork of inconsistent
laws throughout the country.
These recent same-sex
marriages have turned into
nothing more than a media
circus exploiting men in
feather boas and females in
tuxedos. When will these
partners realize they are be-
ing used?
Statistics prove that the
majority of Americans prefer
traditional marriage between
a man and woman with the
special designation and ben-
efits of marriage.
Why do you suppose that
is the case? I think it is be-
cause most people believe
that the ideal setting for nur-
turing and developing chil-
dren is in the home of a legal-
ly wed man and woman.
The wedding aisle of same-
sex marriages would be a slip-
pery slope. It would open the
door to liberal activists to
make more demands.
Next, it may be polygamy.
After all, why shouldn't they
have the same rights as every-
one else? That means em-
ployers would be forced to
give benefits to all the spous-
es of an employee plus their
many children.
I think that adults who
wish to enter into a nontradi-
tional union can make their
own legal provisions for
spouses. That is what is
known as personal responsi-
bility.
If it was good enough for
Adam and Eve, then it should
be good enough for us.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS



Make deputies do their jobs


Editor:
A deputy has to drive 5 miles through Venice to patrol the
beach? That is their job, right? Call the sheriff's department and
have them get on it.
You do not want your kids to see this. Get these people off
this beach.
Call the county commissioners. They will run it down the
line and get it taken care of.

Justice delayed
is justice denied
Editor:
Three of the most recent
killers in the news are truly
monsters.
I'm talking about Scott
Peterson, who murdered his
pregnant wife and unborn
baby; Mr. Couey, who raped
and murdered Jessica Luns-
ford; and Mr. Smith, who kid-
napped and murdered Carly
Brucia.
Why are these three mon-
sters still alive? It makes me
battle with the death penalty.
In other countries justice
would be swift. It seems our
handling of these heinous
crimes should be done at a
much faster pace.
Jessica Lunsford's killer
hasn't gone to trial even after
he admitted guilt. Floridians
are paying for his shelter,
meals and medical attention.
There could be a better
way to handle this. Why not
turn him over to Mark Luns-
ford and his biker buddies?
I'm sure they would figure out
swift justice for Jessica.
Carly Brucia's killer should
have never been out of jail on
probation. Why the legal sys-
tem lets these monsters loose
is beyond me. Those respon-
sible for his release should
share the guilt and be made
to pay for their lack of good
judgement.


Scott Peterson should not
be isolated from the other
prisoners. He should be in the
general population. There's a
disgust amongst prisoners for
monsters like him. Jeffrey
Dahmer was killed by his fel-
low inmates.
There's an argument that
lethal injection is a cruel and
painful way to execute pris-
oners. What about the cruel
and painful deaths Lacey
Peterson, Jessica Lunsford
and Carly Brucia suffered at
the hands of these monsters?,

Grateful for
educational
opportunity
Editor:
The volunteers of the pet-
friendly shelters of Charlotte
and Sarasota counties would
like to thank the Sun newspa-
pers for the support and com-
mitment to educating our cit-
izens about emergency pre-
paredness. Your articles have
generated a renewed interest
in preparing, especially with
our pet-owning neighbors.
The Sun has consistently
offered resources and infor-
mation for our communities
that is timely, educational
and informative. We appreci-
ate your interest in our pro-
grams and efforts.


Our plea to the community
to be educated, prepared and
involved in personal emer-
gency planning is essential to
the safety of your readers, and
we appreciate the opportuni-
ties you provide us.

Don't forget
South Venice
Editor:
After reading the article
that said Mike Miller plans to
put low-income housing in
the northeast part of Venice, I
realized that South Venice
could use low-income hous-
ing also.
The section of U.S. 41
between Seminole and Baffin
would be a great spot. All they
have to do is use the empty
space along the west side of
the,road.
Maybe the Venice Housing
Authority could use the area
for another housing complex.

Semantics won't
save manatees
Editor:
Despite growing threats to
the manatee's long-term sur-
vival and overwhelming pub-
lic opposition, the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Commis-
sion voted last week to pre-
maturely downlist manatees
from "endangered" to "threat-
ened." This decision plays
right into the hands of those
who want to exploit manatee
habitat for development and
high-speed recreation.
Even though the state
found that the manatee pop-
ulation could be reduced by
as much as 50 percent in the
future and that manatees
meet the federal and World
Conservation Union's defini-


tion for endangered, mana-
tees no longer qualify for state
endangered status because
the FWC arbitrarily changed
its listing/delisting rules by
adopting the IUCN criteria
for endangered and then call-
ing it threatened.
The state claims the mana-
tee population is growing. But
a state report says only the
two smallest subpopulations,
comprising just 16 percent of
the population, show clear
growth,
The Atlantic subpopula-
tion has probably declined by
about 3 percent per year over
, the last five years. The
Southwest subpopulation is
already in decline.
And manatees continue to
die from boat strikes in near-
record numbers.
The FWC insists protec-
tions won't change, but a
review of Florida law shows
endangered species are
afforded' more protection
than threatened species.
The commission claims its
management plan will pro-
tect manatees. However,
Florida's Legislature will be
pressured to reduce FWC's
authority and funding to pro-
tect manatees. This will
undermine the implementa-
tion of the plan, and prevent
real recovery.
In the meantime, mana-
tees' projected loss of winter
habitat could cause cata-
strophic future losses.
This is no time for celebra-
tion.

'LET 'EM HAVE IT! HAVE YOU TRIED THE NEW 5-1-1 TRAFFIC

ALERT SYSTEM? CALL US AT 207-1111.

Hello, gridlock; goodbye, Florida


Nowhere to go. Again we sit in traffic on Laurel Road as the
traffic on 1-75 is funneled off into Venice-Nokomis, and it takes
you three-quarters of an hour to go from Pinebrook Road to
Mission Valley Boulevard. Now, what's wrong with this picture?
Our county commissioners are choosing to add more homes
to this road so we will have further backups and further prob-
lems. Until our traffic problem is solved, no more homes
should be built or subdivisions approved. When are we gonna
get it through? We have nowhere to go. We live in gridlock. It's
time to leave the state. Goodbye.


Stay out of it. I think Gulf
Coast Community Founda-
tion of Venice ought to stay
out of the Venice High School
thing. If the school board sees
fit to sell, I think they ought to.
I don't think foundation
ought to have a damn thing to
do with it. Sorry about that,
but that's the way I feel.
Help. Your picture of chefs
in white caps was very inter-
esting. I live in a retirement
well-known place here in
Venice. Our chef wears a
baseball cap, backward at
that. I'm not sure he would
qualify as a chef. And the food
most dinner times is very,
very poor.
I wonder if there is a com-
mission somewhere to help
people' in retirement homes
get better food.
Don't move. I'm calling
regarding moving the high
school off the island. I do not
believe they should move the
high school off the island. The
schools are in an excellent
spot where they are now, and
it's just some people wanting
to build condominiums on
the island. They see that
property as prime real estate.
Absolutely not. It should be
left school property.
5-1-1 doesn't work. I was
so excited about your articles
on the new 5-1-1 system
where you can call about
what roads are busy and so
forth. I was on 41 in Laurel
today and noticed all the semi


trucks, and I called 5-1-1 be-
cause I wanted to see in
which direction the highway
was closed, northbound or
southbound. I called.'It was a
little difficult to understand
what they wanted me to say.
Finally, I got to the I-75 part
and the response was there
were no problems on 1-75. So
obviously the system is not
working yet, and I think peo-
ple should be aware of that.
Raccoon removal. We cap-
tured a raccoon in the cage in
our backyard. He was a men-
ace to the neighborhood,
which is rather senior, with
little pets. Now why is it we
had to pay $20 to have him
removed by animal control,
whereas, ifyou have an alliga-
tor removed, it doesn't cost
you anything? That is the
question we'd like .to have
answered.
Worker bees. This is a
head's up for some of the din-
ing customers in Venice. We
appreciate how much you
rave about the food, prices
and two-for-one drinks. It's
wonderful how you praise the
excellent service you receive.
The fact of the matter is,
servers cannot afford to live
on the compliments and
praise.
Please tip accordingly so
that. your favorite dining
establishment can maintain
the excellence and quality.
Let's try to keep' the worker
bees in Venice before they


move on to a more savvy
clientele.
Uphold restrictions. Yes, I
think the watering restric-
tions could be tightened. As
you know, we are only sup-
posed to water once a week.
The city needs to go after the
violators now. You would have
to be blind to miss all the pud-
dles, as well as the sprinkling
system running on nonwater-
ing days.
The businesses and the
church on The Rialto, the
community center on Noko-
mis Avenue, the area around
the hospital parking garage,
along with the place on
Nokomis and Field avenues
- too many to mention that
water just about every day.
Can't leave out the homeown-
ers; they are doing it also. The
violators should be issued
warnings or fines. Maybe up-
holding current restrictions is
all that is needed.
Others upset. I have to say
that not just the band and
Venice High School is mad
about how things worked out
at the Venice Memorial Day
ceremony. Other people are
also upset about it.

The other morning I was
sitting on my lanai looking
out at the water and the beau-
tiful natural preserve I live on,
and there was this turtle,
which was not a rare phe-
nomenon, except where it
was positioned.
As I took a second look, I
saw that this particular turtle
was making its way up a
rather steep incline pushing
sand away with its feet in
order to make a slow but
steady forward path up the
hill.
It was, unusual to say the
least, because all the turtles
usually bathed in the sun
midday by the shoreline and
then, went back in the water,
a rather tedious, daily routine.
However, this turtle was in-
stead making its 'way in a
totally different direction. In
my mind, it was surely mixed
up. I was fascinated and con-
tinued to watch.
' As "my" turtle (I now had
adopted it, of course) made
its way further up the hill
toward the dense forest, I
asked myself again what it
could possibly be doing. Fin-
ally, I had my answer it dis-
appeared into the foliage,
there was a momentary
pause and then, all of a sud-
den, several sprays of sand
sprung up across the wooded

way to start the day.
Let's see what's headlining

area.
It was an amazing sight. If
the Venice Symphony had
been present, it could per-
haps have played something
to accompany the sway of the
synchronized movement.
By this time, I realized that
perhaps something much
larger than one single little
turtle straying into the woods
was going on. It now occurred
to me that female turtles were
en masse making their nests
to bury their eggs;
Now, I. am clearly not
someone who knows any-
thing about turtles or their
habits, but something very
big was happening, and it was
not a coincidence that one lit-
tle turtle was led astray. I had
really witnessed something
very special in nature.
I was so excited. I wished I
had one of the zoom cameras
my son carries but didn't, un-
fortunately. I didn't even have
anyone to share the experi-
ence with you, so I thought I'd
write this article and share it
with all of you, even though I
might sound foolish.
I thought I'd take that
chance if for no other reason
than I don't take enough time
to appreciate nature and the
simple things around me
sometimes. It made me stop
and think about all the hous-
es and shopping centers that
are going up around here that
are crowding out our wildlife


What does this have to do
with Our Town? If you need
something "uplifting" for the
Our Town section, I "cross my
heart" that I can provide
something of more interest to
the people of Venice than
your bra story.

- and crowding out "us," for
that matter.
It's getting harder and
harder to find beautiful
places to see natural specta-
cles like I witnessed, let alone
share them with anyone. I
think these are the things that
are important.
I look at house after house,
and most of them face into
each other's lanai. .I am so
lucky to be able to have the
peaceful beauty of a natural
lake and preserve with wild-
life still allowed to live freely.
I do hope for all of our
sakes that we stop and look
around and see what's hap-
pening to our beautiful Ven-
ice. I don't recognize some of
the streets from one week to
the next, that's how fast build-
ings are going up and wildlife
is being forced elsewhere.
I guess I'd like to know
what price we are paying for
all the stuff we're putting up
everywhere.
Why do we always have to
crowd ourselves in and let
greed take over our common
sense?
My motto is "less is more"
today. Let us preserve some of
the beauty. Let us take care of
our wildlife, let us be kind to
each other; and let us pre-
serve and enjoy what we
have.
Everyday I wake up, I look
over at my preserve and know
I reallylive in paradise. What a

Rackominium ready to rock and roll


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

John Chenowith is shoot-
ing to open Cap'n Lees at Bel-
lagio, 510 Black Point Road,
Osprey, at the end of this
month in the former sales
office for Bellagio Harbor
Village.
Having been in boating all
his life, including a spell oper-
ating race boats, he knows
and intends to provide the
services desired from a top-
flight marina operation serv-
ing condominium owners,
rackominium users and visit-
ing boaters.
He came to Osprey having
been vice president of the
American Sportsmen's Club
for 16 years in Denver, Colo.
His store will open with
five employees, adding more


people as it grows. Reno-
vations are being completed
to have large coolers with
beer, wine, sodas and frozen
bait alongside sundries,
snack food, hats and T- shirts,
fishing equipment and tackle.
Outside will be a live bait,
shrimp and pinfish container.
Chenowith will operate the
marina at the outset from 8
a.m. to 5 p.m., but stated if
customers are going fishing at
6 a.m. his team will put their
boat in the water, provide
food, drinks, ice and bait to
order so it will be sitting dock-
side ready to go. Contractors
are dredging to 5 feet the
access channel to the Intra-
coastal.
Construction is almost
complete on the Bellagio
Harbor Village rackominium,
which will be 175 feet by 275


feet with giant access doors
closed and secured every
night. Built to hurricane-
proof standards, it will with-
stand 200 mph winds.
There is storage for 185
boats up to 35 feet long,
standing three to four boats
high. Throughout is a state-
of-the-art fire suppression
system with a sprinkler head
above each boat.
All water drainage is into a
center channel, through fil-
ters before draining into the
Intracoastal.
The new Marina Bull. fork-
lift operates a 24,000-pound
lift with a 12-foot negative
drop. Chenowith will have
two work bays for minor
repairs, and has arrange-
ments offsite for major repair
work. Gas pumps are avail-
able by the storage area and


alongside the dock.
An upscale public restau-
rant with views of the Intra-
coastal is being completed
upstairs with elevator access.
At the front of the the racko-
minium will be a downstairs
cafe bar serving breakfast.
There will be a roadside
parking lot for 50 cars. Fully
equipped showers and lock-
ers have been included for
rackominium owners.
Chenowith recalled his ex-
periences in South Florida as
a wildlife biologist working
for the Florida Game & Fresh-
water Commission in the
Everglades. During the time
when alligators were rare and
endangered, he tagged nearly
1,000 and did nesting studies.
As marina operator he
intends to operate the facility

Schott is top communications pro


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


One of America's top com-
munications builders lives in
Nokomis.
Not the typical Realtor,
Marilyn Schott, manager, of
Michael Sanders Company's
office on Siesta Key, has writ-
ten two books, made TV
appearances, is a member of
the National Speakers Associ-
ation and operates two com-
panies.
Born in Columbus, Ohio,
her successful career began in
Cincinnati during the 1970s.
Her first job was leasing ware-
house space with a team of
three. She built it to a million
and a half square feet under:
lease, landing six divisions of
Procter & Gamble and in-
creasing her team to 65 not
an easy task for a single mom
doing commission-only com-
mercial real estate in 1985.
Developing her own
unique talents soon led to
requests from other compa-
nies for her sales and tele-
phone skills. In 1992 she
launched her own business in
commercial real estate.
Believing everyone is a
communicator, but seeing a
dearth of management effec-
tiveness, her second compa-
ny was born Marilyn
Schott Communications. She
did a 13-week TV show high-
lighting beautiful rehabs of
Cincinnati.
In 1985 she met Joe Schott,


a cousin of Marge, who own-
ed the Cincinnati Reds. Two
years later they married. Ten
years later she went through
breast cancer.
Having. to work less, she
became mote focused, taking
up habits like walking 30 min-
utes, visualizing and listening
to tapes of success.
"I am a true believer in
educate, educate, educate.
You can never stop learning,"
she said. "If you say I have had
it all, then you are not grow-
ing, you are dying."
Her will to recover drove
her to build her communica-
tions business in 1998 more
than she had done in the six
years since opening it.
With husband Joe, she
moved to Nokomis in 1999,
with nearby Sarasota airport
enabling her to fly all over the
country for speaking, training
and growing her business.
Obtaining a Blue Cross
Blue Shield contract in Cin-
cinnati in 2001, she worked
across five states for several
weeks training top manage-
ment and 200 salespeople to
be better speakers.
Her first book, "Happiness,
A Decision of the Heart," is sold
mainly to oncologists and radi-
ologists to show women and
men going through cancer
treatment that there is hope.
"Career Development
Strategies That Work," her
second book, illustrates how
passionately she feels about
men and women working in

Waterford announces
green communities
The Waterford Companies
has announced it will build
green communities begin-
ning with Mariners Landing
in Englewood.
, Waterford President Mike
Miller believes in the impor-
tance of building green by
offering communities and
homes that are environmen-
tally responsible and provide
healthy places to live.
"We are living in an envi-
ronmental and energy con-
scious world and want to pro-'
mote environmental and
energy conservation as well
as helping to protect the na-
tive environment," he said.
The Florida Green Building
Coalition has developed stan-
dards by which developers
and builders must meet cer-
tain basic criteria to be given
credit toward green develop-
ment designation. Waterford
will follow these standards,
which include waterfront
considerations, energy code
ratings, water-wise landscap-
ing, proper design of air con-
ditioning systems and energy
efficient appliances.

: Schott illustrates her ideol-
ogy with the story of a woman
unable to make decisions on
all the paperwork landing on
her desk, even items 5 or 6
years old, until eventually one
Saturday she cleaned up and
became organized.
Executives lose one hour
every week because they
throw things in a file or draw-
er saying they will find it later,
but when it's called for they
either cannot find it or it takes
a lot of time to locate.
If they had to work com-
mission only, they would cer-
tainly be more productive,
she said. There are certain


steps to take and success has
to follow.
Making public speaking
easy and powerful, the im-
portance of first impressions,
attire,, body language, and
voice rapport are among her
10 strategies she thinks men
and women can do.
Three thousand copies
were sold on her Web site,

Schott's goal is to educate,.
energize inspire and to trans-
form in all she does, says and

Sorrento C-21 groundbreaking this week


ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS!

It was 1962 when C.E. Pitts
launched his real estate com-
pany, developing and selling
Sorrento Shores, bordering
Nokomis and Osprey.
He set up his sales office in
a 400-square-foot shed that
was subsequently torn down
to be replaced in 1992 by the
company's existing 1,600-
square-feet general real estate
office. On Tuesday, June 20,
his grandson, Hansel Pitts Jr.,
and the Century 21 Sorrento
Realty team will break ground
on a major expansion at the
company's location 8 Sor-
rento Drive, Osprey.
"We are trebling the size of
our offices to be a bigger force
here in this community," said
Pitts. His father, with 40 years'
experience, is specializing in
commercial developments.
The intention is to double
their existing 25 agents by
offering a specialty training
program. In the enlarged
offices new services will
include an attorney specializ-
ing in real estate or a title
company for closings togeth-
er with a loan officer.
The new extension will be
a Key West design, and com-
pletion is expected by the end
of the year. Call 966-3602.
Venice motel upgraded
Motel 6 has taken on a
whole new style with new
exterior and interior designs.
Located for 20 years at 281
North U.S. 41 Bypass near the
Albee Farm Road intersec-
tion, the motel has just com-
pleted a good winter season.
John Ferraro, manager at


the Venice location for eight
years, confirmed contractors
have just completed renova-
tions to 95 rooms and the
eight remaining will be done
in January..
Guest rooms were painted,,
new carpeting fitted, and new.

already employs her daugh-
ter, Debbie Parrott, and sup-
pottive colleague Hugh Cook.
Sherwood came to Florida
35 years ago from Walled
Lake, Mich., and has been a

Lights dim for final time
At the end of the month
the lights go out at The Light
House, 500 South U.S. 41 By-
pass, Venice, when the store
closes.
Owner Bill Burdick took
over the store 1995 when he
was running a small lighting
shop in Englewood. It had
been the Light Styles store for
16 years and the owners were
closing it. Soon he found
operating two stores too
much and transferred busi-
ness to the Venice store.
"The competition has got
so heavy. New developers
bring their own light pack-
ages; Lowe's opening cut our
business; and fixing the road
in the future ,will have an-
adverse effect," said Burdick.
"I want to thank everyone
who has taken care of me for
11 years; now I have to go job
hunting." The Light House
closes June 30. Call 484-6886.

Shannon Staub said a hearing

the way the current appeals

"You need a real impartial

But Staub suggested the
appeals board be dissolved.
"The way it has been set
up over the years has been
nuts," she said.
DeMarsh said any action
would require preparation to
change the ordinance, since
the board's job is to interpret
the code.
Overall, the board agreed
the system needed changing.
As the appeals board
stands now, it has a county at-
torney supporting its deci-
sions; Humphreys is on her
own.
Patterson helped end the
discussion by moving to pro-
vide a county attorney to
represent Humphreys and an
outside attorney to support
the appeals board.
DeMarsh said he would
have to study what codes
would need to take place to
make that happen.
Staub did not support the
action.. .

Kiwanis ousted in losers' bracket final


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


A great place

to break down

My buddy LeRoy had a
great idea to help me enjoy
my birthday Thursday.
We would go fishing. He
brought along his nephew
Todd, who was also cele-
brating a birthday Thurs-
day.
The original plan was to
head out of St. James City
and fish Redfish Pass or
Captiva Pass, but it was still
windy Thursday leftovers
from Alberto and there
was a moderate chop on
Pine Island Sound.
We would stay more local
and fish the lower Myakka
River and upper Charlotte
Harbor out of El Jobean.
We launched and looked
out over the river. We de-
cided to head across to the
west side around Cattledock
Point. Halfway across the
river, I heard LeRoy said
"something's wrong."
At first I thought it would
be something minor, but it
was big league. The motor
had died and wouldn't re-
start. For a good 45 minutes,
LeRoy tried to get the motor
running, but to no avail.
Finally, he had to call Sea
Tow. He's a member.
We put the anchors down
to stop us from being blown
Ito shore. We figured, might
as well fish w while waiting.
Well, LeRoy couldn't have
found a better spot to break
down. Trout both silver
and spotted were coming
in on almost every cast.
We were all having a
blast.
Then we could see a dot
on the horizon. It slowly got
bigger and bigger.
Drats. It's Sea Tow.
We were the saddest
bunch ever "rescued."
"Why couldn't they be late
like they usually are?" asked
LeRoy.
It turned out to be water
from the storm leaking into
the gas tank.
It's not the first time I've
had boating misadventures
with LeRoy.
About eight years ago, we
hobbled onto the beach on
the south side of Gasparilla
Island in the middle of the
night after spending most of
the day stranded in the*
harbor.
I've been stuck 40 miles
out with waterspouts and
lightning dancing around
the boat.
I've gone down in a canoe
and john boat.
Maybe it's a good thing I
do a majority of my fishing
these days from shore.

The County Cup Little
League Tournament is down
to two teams.
Unfortunately for Venice
fans, neither of them are from
these parts.
It will be the Sarasota Cubs
taking on the undefeated
Sarasota Nationals for the
championship Friday night. If
the losers' bracket Cubs win,
then a deciding game will be
played Saturday morning.
The Cubs shaded Kiwanis,
7-6, in Thursday night's los-
ers' bracket final.
Kiwanis never gave up and
had a chance tb tie or win it
in the sixth inning.
Kiwanis, Venice Little
League's National Division
and City Cup champions,
entered the sixth inning trail-
ing 7-4. The locals put to-
gether a nice little rally. The
biggest hit of the frame came
off the bat of Kelly Ott. With
two strikes and two outs, she
lined a two-run triple to right
center, making it 7-6.
Up came Kiwanis' leadoff
batter, Ryan Golembeski, who
had homered earlier in the,
game. Pitcher Joe Marich got
Golembeski to ground out to
third to end the game.
Kiwanis, which finished
6-2 in the tourney, trailed 4-1
after one inning and 7-1 after
two frames.


Tyson Albert started for
Kiwanis. The Cubs got four
runs and four hits off of him.
Michael Knott came on in
the second inning. He was
touched up for three runs
and three hits in the second
inning. Knott ,settled down
after that, allowing just one
hit over the final three
frames.
Kiwanis, which won the
2004 County Cup, scored
twice in the fourth inning to
draw to within 7-3. Albert
had a triple and scored on a
wild pitch. Chris Ridley
walked and scored on a
groundout by Joel Turner.
Golembeski doubled and
scored in the fifth to draw
Kiwanis to within 7-4.
Golembeski homered in
the top of the first to give
Kiwanis a short-lived 1-0 lead.
KIWANIS 4, BABE'S HARD-
WARE 1 Kiwanis broke a
1-1 tie with three runs in the
top of the sixth to stay alive
in the County Cup tourna-
ment. The losers' bracket
game was played Wednesday
night at Twin Lakes Park.
Kiwanis defeated Babe's
four times this season. Babe's
is the defending County Cup'
champion.
Taylor Marchand broke a
1-1 tie with a two-run triple
and B.J. Morse added an RBI
single.
The winning pitcher was
Ryan Golembeski. He allowed

There's more

to fishing than catching


MR. SHEEPSHEAD


I had a dream. In fact, I
had many dreams. Every one
of the dreams had Florida in
it. I knew this would be my
state, even when I was in my
20s. After all, if you're a nut
on fishing like I am, then
there's no other place.
I don't know about you, but
I know how lucky I am to be
in this area.
Today was a good example
of how great our area is. I
went out on the South Jetty
about 1 p.m. and the fishing
was rather slow. In fact, it was
so slow that I laid my rod
down and shot the breeze
with the few people that were
there. It gave me a chance to
reflect on many things that I
may not have seen if I was
fishing.
My friend, Marvin, was
standing on a rock and right
in front of him three 20-30-
pound baby tarpon appear.,


He cast to them, but they
never hit his lure. About 10
minutes later, two huge man-
atees paid us a visit. They
stayed around for about an
hour. What a delight it is to
see these beautiful creatures.
A few minutes later the
dolphin appeared. They were
busy attacking the finger
mullet that were constantly
swimming past us,Then Red
Truck Tommy gets a strong
hit on his live finger mullet.
He plays it for a few seconds
and then announces that it's
a jack. About five minutes
later, sure enough he pulls in
a 8-10 pound jack.
I sat there and watched a
blue heron standing on a
rock. I think he was waiting for
a bait-fish to jump into his
mouth. It seemed like the only
thing he was interested in
was chasing the smaller
egrets away from his area. The
egrets were standing on par-
tially submerged rocks eating
the glass minnows. I don't
know why the herons don't
do the same thing. I guess
they expect the minnows to
jump into their beaks.
The best part about this
afternoon was how comfort-
able it was with the on-shore
breeze blowing in our faces.
Believe it or not, I actually
enjoyed myself even though
I never had a hit on my lure.
As you can see, there's more
to fishing than catching.
Mr. Sheepshead /Dave
Hack can be contacted at 486-
1998 or 321-8849.

Summer ball 'A' team



smoking the competition


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice Indians have
been quietly putting together
a great summer ball season.
The Indians A team is
made up of returning players
from this year's Venice High
team.
Venice stretched its win-
ning streak to seven games
Thursday with a 16-3 blow-
out win over visiting Lehigh
Acres.
Venice (9-2) got clutch hits
from Jordan Wean, Pete
Hernandez and Brody Mc-
Clellan. Josh Struble and

pitched four innings. Ryan
,Angel, Pelletier and Nate
Ruben also pitched.
On Tuesday. Venice de-
feated Charlotte, 5-1. Jason
Kaufman, Angel. Zack Mon-
talbano and Tom Collins
pitched.
Manager Craig Faulkner
said that third baseman
Wean has been swinging the
honest bat. Hernandez, like
Atamanchuk, Anderson and
Pelletier have also been see-


ing the ball well. New blood
McClellan has been making
his presence felt as leadoff
man.

Faulkner is happy to see a
lot of his former players
coming back in the summer
and helping out with coach-
ing. He pointed to guys like
Andrew Tilka, Matt Kindell
and Graig Smith.
On a down note, fans still
have to walk a quarter mile
from the front parking lot
back to the baseball complex.
On campus construction is
responsible for all the sweat-
ing.

The Venice B team upped
its record to 2-2 with a 4-2
victory over Lemon Bay.

ager Wavne Skelton have
been Brent Krauss. Kyle
Collison, Nlichael Geers, Joe

Lemon Bay estate offered for sale


Stately palms provide shade and extra privacy at the back of the
house, which overlooks Lemon Bay.


Two curved staircases lead to the main entrance to the main house
of an estate recently listed for sale with Sotheby's International
Realty.


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Mediterranean design details enhance the
main house on a 2-acre private estate on
Lemon Bay. Recently listed for sale by Realtor
Richard Leydon of Gulf to Bay Sotheby's
International Realty, the great-rbom plan
house has four bedrooms and four and one-
half baths on the main floor plus an extra fam-
fly room space below, leading out to the pool,
spa and expansive deck.
Professionally landscaped, the property
includes a boat dock with two verti-lifts plus
additional out buildings. From the dock, one
has immediate access to the Intracoastal
Waterway and Gulf of Mexico 'via either
Stump Pass to the South of the Venice Inlet to
the North.
Located at the end of Overbrook Road, the
house features a formal paver driveway lined
with palms leading to a circular drive and for-
mal entrance that merely hints at the breadth
of architectural details and design .elements to
be found within the house.
Two master bedroom suites feature round-
ed window walls, offering breathtaking views
of the bay and the Gulf of Mexico beyond
Manasota Key, which is just across the Water-
way from the house. Wasting not one inch of
the spectacular view, the owners opted for
safety glass panels in the upper deck railing
rather than view-blocking balustrades or
other treatment.
The designer kitchen features custom cab-
inetry, upgraded appliance befitting such a
property, plenty of storage and extensive
counter areas. Downstairs there is a full bar
and entertainment center, with sliding door
access to the pool deck and additional space.
for entertaining.
Built in 1999, the property has been listed
for $3,900,000 and may be seen by appoint-
ment. Call Leydon at ,(877) 581-6592 or 223-
4609.


SUN PHOTOS BY KIM COOL
The home's pool has both spa and waterfall features.


Hand-painted palm trees that partially wrap the archway, balance
the tropical view from the ground-level family room of the main
house. ':

MarineMax offers WOW class in Venice


The other half of the WOW class heads out to the Intracoastal Waterway


from the MarineMax dock.
BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

WOW stands for Women on Water,
a hands-on class for women boaters.
Given by MarineMax dealers
around the country, the day-long
class is designed to get women
behind the wheel to gain the confi-
dence and knowledge necessary to
pilot a boat and have fun doing it.
There will be a class at Palm
Island June 24 and one in Venice July
15, both will be 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
I joined the May class at the
MarineMax distributorship on City
Island in Sarasota to see what I could
leam. All my boating experience has
been on sail boats, so climbing
aboard a 48-foot SeaRay power boat
was an experience itself and I even
got to sit behind the wheel and actu-
ally dock that giant boat. Given all its
bells and wlhisdes and what I
learned in the class, docking was a
"piece of cake."
We spent the morning in the
MarineMax classroom, as Captains
Jack Sapp and Gregg Feagans taught
us the basics of navigation, includ-
ing chart reading and gave us some
hands-on experience with knot
tying, line storage and securing a
boat to a piling or dock.
Navigating the Intracoastal
Waterway was the first topic of dis-
cussion. For most boaters in Florida,
the ICW is the way they get out into
the Gulf of Mexico. It is important to
know how to read the channel mark-
ers and how to determine water
depth.
"The lighter the color, the shal-
lower the water," Sapp said. "If you
are not sure about the water ahead,
probe it or back up and call for
advice."
Guessing wrong can lead to bro-

Clarification and correction
Earl Blackburn is the last
Blackburn on Blackburn Bay who
is descended from George Wash-
ington Blackburn. There are
many other Blackburn family
members still living on the bay'
They .are descendants of Ben
Franklin Blackburn. Earl Black-
burtk built the house, which is for
sald,. and' lived there with his
mother before he married Elaine,
who is from Illinois. The Venice
Gondolier Sun regrets the confu-
sion.



COMING SUNDAY


STUDENTS WRITE
ABOUT THEIR DADSi


ken props and other expensive
problems while also seriously ruin-
ing a day at sea;
"It is still up to the person at the
wheel," Sapp said. "Venice is the
only one (ICW channel) that never
changes, and that is because of the
jetties but they won't let us do jetties
anymore.
"In New Pass, they don't even put
in pilings anymore, just floating
* markers because of the constant
changes."
Boaters need to use a combina-
tion of sources of information.
Charts are only one source. Local
knowledge is even better.
"When you don't know a channel,
follow a boat, which has more draft
or call us or, Seatow on the radio and
ask," Sapp said. "Seatow will never
give you bad information."
Sapp said that is where women
are different. They will ask for direc-
tions while the men will say, "I think
I can make it."
"Make sure you can make it," he
said. "When you don't know, stop.
Unless you are in the Venice Inlet.
There is a lot of water there." ,
Taking classes is important for all
boaters. The course we were taking
was a good introductory class but no
one-day class can be as comprehen-
sive as' the multi-week courses
offered !by the Power Squadron or
the Coast Guard and even the state.
Also look at the pilings. Tide
charts show mean water levels,
which ,are not the same every day.
Note where the barnacles stop.
"I still learn," Sapp said.
As important as checking chan-
nel depth is weather checking. Sapp
said boaters should always go to the
NOAA (National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration) for the
latest weather advisories. The Gulf of
Mexico is considered a shallow body
of water, easily affected by even
minor changes in the weather.
Today's boaters have access to all
the latest navigational aids, but they
still need to know how to sail the old-
fashioned way, using their mind
instead of their fancy electronic gear.
"What do you do when the elec-
tronic systems are out," Sapp asked.
On the Intracoastal, the channel
is between the red triangular and
green square markers and the ICW
markers have a yellow triangle or
square on top of the green and red. If
you are in a pass and not the ICW,
there will be no yellow markers. Red
markers are on the right when you
are coming back to the dock, "from
the large water to the smaller water."
; "Everyone always says, red right
returning," WOW student Betty Frick
*said. "Now I finally know why -
'large water to small water." ,
A person sailing all the way from
New Jersey to Texas on the
Intracoastal would always have the
red markers on the right, whether
headed south on the Atlantic coast
or north on the Gulf Coast.
"There are no markers in the gulf
except for hazards," Sapp said.
"From Sarasota to Boca Grande
there are no markers at all no aids
to navigation. I pick a depth like 20
feet and when it gets shallower, I
head out."
Feagans pointed to an aerial
photo of the Sarasota harbor area
and said that the biggest hazard of
all was to run out of water.
Depths on the charts refer to
water depth at high tide.


SUN PHOTOS BY KIM COOL

Capt. Jack Sapp offers suggestions as Navija Valladares takes the helm of the big SeaRay boat for some docking


practice.

"In the Keys you could have
markers 120-feet tall," Feagans said.
"The more you learn the more
fun you will have," they both said as
they put away the charts and got out
some lines and posts, a cleat and an
anchor. Time for knot tying.
"You need to know two knots and
how to tie on to a cleat and to a pil-
ing," Sapp said as he demonstrated
how to make two half-hitch knots
around a piling.
"The most difficult part is judging
the distance from the boat to the pil-
ing," he said.
We each had a chance to tie on to
the cleat and to toss the rope toward
a piling, wrapping the piling at the
same time. Then the discussion
shifted to tying up the boat, tying the
spring line first using an aft cleat or
one at midships for the protection of
the boat, to keep it from drifting
back farther.
"No two dockings are ever the
same," Sapp said,
The instructors also covered
anchoring out in the water, allowing
enough line to equal at least seven
times the water's depth if one is
going to be at anchor out in he water
overnight. Both instructors said to
see how the other points are pointed
when anchoring for they will all
swing the same way. When rating to
other boats, put the biggest boat in
the middle.
Those thoughts in mind, it was
time for lunch. In addition to the
free class, MarineMax also provided
a free lunch of assorted sandwiches,
chips, cookies and soft drinks. We
had 30 minutes to, eat before our
afternoon cruise.

WOW heading out to the
Intracoastal
The afternoon class session was
aboard two state-of-the-art power
boats, 44-foot and 48-foot long
SeaRay sport cruisers. There were
eight of students on each boat. My
group, on the larger of the two boats,
had Sapp as our leader.
Before we left the dock, I headed
down below to check out the galley
with its granite counters and
smooth-top electric range, the two
heads and separate shower, forward
and aft staterooms, a saloon with
flat-screen TV and then I came back
topside. The boat had a ski platform
aft, a small seating area ahead of
that and the cockpit that had seating
on both sides, the glassed in and
covered helm area with molded in
settee and adjustable cushioned
bench for the pilot. Two video
screens one for the onboard GPS
system, wheel and both bow and
stern thrusters, which allow the
lengthy twin-diesel-powered boat to
turn on a dime.
Sapp asked for volunteers to
release the lines and pretty soon we
were underway, following Feagans'
boat into the Intracoastal.
Betty Frick was the firstWOW stu-


dent to try her hand at the helm,
pointing the bow toward a pass
leading to the Gulf of Mexico. We
each had a turn at driving the boat,
which turned with less effort than a
tiny car with super power steering.
Tentatively pushing the throttle for-
ward I was told to push it father, at
which point the bow began to point
up and out of the water and we were
soon flying along or so it seemed.
The other ladies talked about
turkey feather wakes but this boat
was so easy to handle that the wake
we made was actually crisp and
clean behind us. Slowing the boat
down to give someone else a chance
at the helm, I was starting to figure
how manyyears ofVenice Gondolier
Sun pay would be needed for the
down payment on such a boat. Years
ago, boaters use to talk about spend-
ing $1,000 a foot for a boat. Sapp
said he didn't know how much this
one cost but I was guessing it might
be at least ten times more than that.
Bad guess.
Our confidence buoyed, Sapp
said it was time for us to practice


SeaRays. A 46-footer built in 2001
was listed for $399,000. Obviously
my guess was all wrong about the
price of the new 48-footer. If you
have to ask, you can't afford it. I
knew I couldn't afford the new one. I
didn't ask.
As I headed for my car, my class-
mates were all hovering around the
counter,. checking out the dates for
the next classes. They had so mich

What's in a name


- a cat name?


STORY AND GRAPHICS
BY DICK HARRISON
GUEST WRITER

It's indisputable people
are far more creative when it
comes to naming their cats
than they are when naming
their kids! According to Social
Security Administration stats
the most popular girl's name
in 2004 (the most recent year
for available statistics) was
Emily and the most popular
moniker for boys was Jacob.
Not so with kittycats, says
Dick Harrison, one of the
originators of the popular on-
line limerick writing contest:
limerickcontests.com. "The
subject for our May 2006,
contest was CATS. We did
have a Tiger, a Dennis and a
Missy, but others were a lot
more colorful, ranging from
Hyacinth Flower, quickly
renamed Booger for her less


than agreeable disposition,
all the way to Leonides
Thurston McBatt. His mis-
tress said a mouthful every
time she went to the door to
call him to his crunchies!"
It was Dennis, however,
who got the judges' vote as
"most high-strung" feline and
his owner, Helen Meilde, from
Australia, who walked away
with first prize for this catchy
limerick:

There once was a pussy
named Dennis
Whose hubris was truly a
menace,
Till his unseemNly pride
Blew a gasket inside
And they salvaged his gut to
play tennis.

Venice residents sent in
outstanding entries and their
creative ditties have been
illustrated and will be pub-


There once was a pussy named Dennis
Whose hubris was truly a menace, F- i-
Till his unseemly pride
Blew a gasket inside .-_ .
And they salvaged his gut to play tennis.


My kitty is fluffy and white,
He'll chase with all of his might.
He jumps in the sink,
Then gives you that wink.
My kitty is going goodnight.


Adopt-a-pet


lished as part of a syndicated
feature now being offered to
?newspapers throughout the
USA. Here's a marvelous
poem by Venice writer, So-
phia King:

My name is Theodore Sprat,
People say I'm a very nice
cat.
But I do have one vice,
I love to catch mice,,
That's why I'm enormously
fat. .
Not only does it fall trip-
pingly from the tongue, but it
calls to mind the nursery
rhyme about Jack Sprat arid
his wife "who licked the plat-
ter clean."

Mary E. Moore didn't name


her cat in the limerick, but
because of his, pleasant tele-
phone manner, you may
want to call him yourself and
ask. It's a local call:

An extremely smart
dexterous fellow
My old cat was 'specially
mellow.
When he was alone.
He'd answer the phone
And then purr at the fruitless
"Hello"
Kimtyphiles looking for un-
usual names and their mean-
ings should check in at spe-
cialcat.com. Here's a nice
name and an interesting bit
Pleaesee NAME, 4B


Cats long ago lived by the Ni'e--
Worshipped and cared for in style., i. .,
Today, if you guess
They'd settle for less,
You're certainly no kittyphile.


There was a feline called Kit-Tay
For whom hunting was more fun than play; '
She disdained catnip mice:
Nothing else would suffice -
Save the thrill of the kill of the prey.

My name is Daisie Mae. I am very young, affectionate,
petite, sweet and absolutely adorable. I was rescued
from the streets with kittens. I want a secure home
with someone very special who will love me.
Sometimes I hide but I really don't want to. I want to
know you'll take care of me. I could be the love of your
life once you discover my vociferous purr. If you want
an ONLY cat and your home is quiet, I have all the per-
fect personality traits to keep you content, happy and
amused with my charming antics. I have perfect litter
box manners and am very neat with my food. Quite
honestly, my foster mom loves me just a little too
much and I don't want to break her heart when I leave.
If you'd like to meet me, call my foster Mom, Sherrill,
at 493-9512.

WELL BEING


Thinking outside the pillbox:


vitamins as 'health insurance'


-




SUZY COHEN, R.PH.
COLUMNIST
Q: My ophthalmologist
recently told me I had macular
degeneration. On a scale of one
to 10, he said it's a one. He sold
me a bottle of vitamins (60 tabs)
for $20. I feel that I have been
ripped off. R.B., Boynton
Beach, Fla.
A: If you thought it was
pricey, why did you buy it?
Part of the healing process
for people is their belief in
a treatment; that's why place-
bos (sugar pills) can work
for the desperately ill. If the
supplement you got contains
any or all of these ingredi-
ents, then it is valuable:
Vitamin A, E, C, omega-3
fatty acids, copper, bilberry,
lutein, zinc, zeaxanthin.
There are many brand names
for these over-the-counter
formulas. As a general rule,
I prefer capsules over tablets
for supplements.
Let's talk about getting
"ripped off" when buying
vitamins. It happens some-
times because supplements
are not always pure, or they
fail to contain what the label
says they do. I am also
cognizant of the fact that you
spent $20 for this product
when your isibn iik'sdill "' ',"
pretty good. But it may be
about perception, too.
Getting Americans out of
the mindset of "I'm sick now,
fix me with this pill" to the
state of mind that thinks,
"I don't want to get sick, so
I'll prevent illness with this
supplement," is really,
reeeaally hard! It is not how
we are raised and, seemingly,
it's not in our DNA. And such
an attitude gets no airtime
on TV Truly, it's a mind-
boggling concept for people
who are not accustomed to
putting money into their
body as a method of "health
insurance."
Suppose for a minute that
your eyesight has indeed
deteriorated, because it will
as you get older. Fathom that
maybe, just maybe, your
doctor wants to help and is
thinking outside the pillbox,
and knows about nutritional
interventions to improve
eyesight. Let's fast-forward 10

years and imagine that you
are blind, but your hindsight
is 20-20, and you look back
to realize that your doctor
cared enough to bother
recommending something
helpful to you in order to put
off the inevitable for another
decade or two.
Do you honestly think
your doctor has so much
time on his hands that he
needs to pitch a supplement
to you so he can make $5
extra bucks off you? And
what is the actual cost to
you? At $20 a bottle for 60
pills taken twice daily...
hmmm, that amounts to $10
per eye each month, which
breaks down to 33 cents
per eye per day. Not bad
insurance for your eyes,
considering how difficult life


gets without them.
If you don't have any
genuine concern for losing
your vision, and you don't
fear that your eyesight will
deteriorate from a "one" to,
say, a "nine" on the scale you
mention, then don't take the
supplement. Take your
chances instead.

just approved a new drug for

MOVIES AT A GLANCE


Boynton Beach Club
The Break-Up starts where most
romantic comedies end: after boy
and girl have met, fallen in love,
moved in to start their happily-ever-
after...and right when they wind up
driving each other crazy. Pushed to
the breaking-up point after their lat-
est "why can't you do this one little
thing for me?" argument, art dealer
Brooke (Jennifer Aniston) calls it
quits with her boyfriend, Gary (Vince
Vaughn), who hosts bus tours of
Chicago. What follows is a series of
remedies and undermining suggest-
ed by the former couple's friends,
confidantes and the occasional total
stranger. When neither ex is willing to
move out of the condo they used to
share, the only solution is to contin-
ue living as hostile roommates until
somebody caves. But somewhere
between protesting the pool table in
the living room, and the sports
played at sleep-killing volume in the
middle of night, Brooke begins to
realize that what she may be really
fighting for isn't so much the place
but the right person.

day as any to educate
yourself about the roots of
your sun sign. You're a fire
sign, ruled by Mars, and
your astral phrase is, "I am."
As the baby of the zodiac,
you'll get away with much
today.

i TAURUS (April 20-
May 20). If you didn't
know it before, you're
an earth sign, Taurus. That
means you're uniquely
connected with the seasonal
cycles of our great mother.
Today, you'll sense what's
coming just like the animals
do.

GEMINI (May 21-June
21). The gift of gab
has been yours since
birth, Gemini. So when you
find you have nothing to con-
tribute, you're as stunned as
everyone else. Silence, as they
say, is golden.

CANCER (June 22-
July 22). Ask yourself
whether you would
still be at your job if you
weren't getting paid for it.
Maybe deep down inside
you're enjoying yourself,
but for some reason,
you're conditioned to
,think of work as, well,
work!

.,E LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).
Be the conqueror.
Maybe it's a stretch,
but it's not as much of a
stretch as you'd like people to
believe. With one roar from
you, your challenges turn
into victories.


y LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
23). A technological
issue is driving you
nuts. You're not the only one,
as evidenced by the long hold-
time on the phone. Assistance
from a real live person seems
to be a luxury these days, but
the good news is, all will be
resolved.

.a SCORPIO (Oct. 24-
Nov. 21). When was
the last time you
looked at the clouds as though
they had something fantastic
to tell you? Your imagination is
so vivid now that you'll be able
to "read" the clouds as never
before.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21). The stars
challenge you by ask-
ing: How well do you know
yourself? The answer is: Not,
nearly as well as your mother
knows you. So, ask her about
yourself. You can do this men-
tally, if it's not possible to do it
physically.

:" i CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19). What if you
had an incredibly
dynamic love life? What would
that look like for you? If you
can imagine it, it will happen
this weekend. Put aside old
formulas for romance; the
times are a'changin'.

iAQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18). If your sign's
ruler, Uranus, has any-
thing to teach us, it's that the
unexpected has power. Timing
is everything. In life, the one
with the best attitude wins
every time.


IRO\, PISCES (Feb. 19-March
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 20). You'll be acutely
22). If you're in a aware of who Is on
partnership, there's your side and who isn't. Some
a good chance that your people are insanely jealous,
other half is feeling neglected .but you'd never know it until
right about now. Make a you have a little good news to

Over the Hedge
Spring has sprung, and Verne and
his woodland friends awaken from
their long winter's nap to discover
that a tall, green "thing" has mysteri-
ously cropped up right through the
middle of their home. Enter RJ, an
opportunistic raccoon, who explains
that the world beyond the hedge is
the "gateway to the good life" where
peculiar creatures called humans live
to eat, rather than eat to live.
Suspicious and even a little jealous
of RJ, the ever-cautious Verne wants
to keep his blended family safely on
their side of the hedge. But, proving
the adage that one man's garbage is
another man's-or rather animal's-
treasure, the manipulative RJ tries to
convince the woodland band that
there is little to fear and everything
to gain from their over-indulgent new
neighbors. Eventually, RJ and Verne
form an unlikely friendship as they
learn to co-exist with-and even
exploit-this strange new world called
suburbia. 1 hr. 27 min.

A Prairie Home
Companion
Director Robert Altman and writer

all-star cast to create this backstage
fable about a fictitious radio variety
show that has managed to survive in
the age of television. Unbeknownst to
the audience, though, the radio sta-
tion has been sold to a Texas con-
glomerate and that night's show will
be the last. With Meryl Streep and

Thank You For Smoking
The hero of "Thank You for
Smoking" is Nick Naylor (Aaron
Eckhart), chief spokesman for Big
Tobacco, who makes his living
defending the rights of smokers and
cigarette makers in-today's neo-puri-
tanical culture. Confronted by health
zealots out to ban tobacco and an
opportunistic senator (William H.
Macy) who wants to put poison
labels on cigarette packs, Nick goes
on a PR offensive, spinning away the.
dangers of cigarettes on TV talk
shows and enlisting a Hollywood
super-agent (Rob Lowe) to promote
smoking in movies. Nick's newfound
notoriety attracts the attention of
both tobacco's head honcho (Robert
Duvall) and an investigative reporter
for an influential Washington daily
(Katie Holmes). Nick says he is just
doing what it takes to pay the mort-
gage, but he begins to think about
how his work makes him look in the
eyes of his young son Joey (Cameron
Bright).

ELLEN HILLSTROM
COLUMNIST


The two-day conference
last week on Sustainable
Communities was awesome.
Leave it to good ol' American
ingenuity to find techniques
to change from an oil-depen-
dent society to energy-saving
initiatives for new and exist-
ing homes and land develop-
ment practices that free us
from Mideast control.
Sarasota County govern-
ment took the lead by signing
a resolution to work with
businesses and consumers to
identify possible incentives
and to build a market for
plug-in, hybrid electric vehi-
cles. The campaign is called
"Plug-In Sarasota County."
Imagine paying 75 cents a
gallon vs. $2.83 a gallon with
the purchase of your next car.
Additional information can
be found at pluginpartners
.org.


Zero Energy Homes tech-
niques were real eye openers.
This concept combines state-
of-the-art energy efficient
construction and appliances
with commercially available
renewable energy systems
such as solar water-heating
and solar electricity.
The ultimate saving in
energy more than offsets the
initial investment for pur-
chase as well as increases the
value of the home. The new
energy is clean, abundant,
reliable, and affordable. For
more information, click on
building.gov and click on
Programs and Initiatives.
Low-impact development
practices include stormwater
and land development strate-
gies that emphasize conser-
vation and use of on-site nat-
ural features of the environ-
ment.

tices by the homeowner can
be applied today. In fact, I am

SPECIALTY THE GONDOLIER SUN

Friday, June 10, the keys to
three homes in North Port
were turned over to three
Habitat partners who had
earned the privilege of owner-
ship.
These homes were the
result of a Blitz Build, during
which three contractors start-
ing with previously poured
concrete slabs, finished the


complete construction of
. each house in five days.
Three contractors Jade
Homes Inc., Peter Shipps
Design and Construction and

along with 50 or more sub-
contractors donated all mate-
rial and labor to build these
homes, under the leadership
of the Home Builders Asso-
ciation of Sarasota County.
About 400 homes nationwide
were built in that one week.

FRIDAY RELIGION
JUNE 16, 2006


'Da Vinci,' Judas and


the Christian


The word on the street is
that Dan Brown's "Code"
doesn't play as well on the big
screen as it does in print, hav-
ing captured the imagina-
tions of some 40 million read-
ers. Yes, I read the book and
found it very exciting. At one
point while reading, I ran with
keen anticipation into the,
bathroom to hold the book up
against the mirror to decipher
the reverse script of a secret
message. Sure enough! I
could read it clearly. I even
invited mychildren in to seeit
for themselves. What fun! The,
exciting plot carried me from
page to page, and like my old-
est son, Austin, I finished it in
two days.
I must say however, that
while reading, my mind kept
tripping over the difficult
interplay of fact and fiction.
During long stretches of nar-
rative action, my mind was on
cruise control, turning the
pages with rapid intensity.
Then, wham! I found myself
sitting in some kind of a col-
lege humanities class being
instructed on the early history
of Christianity. Fictional char-
acters posed as expert author-
ities on matters of art history,
second-century Gnostic liter-
ature and early Church coun-
cils. At such spots, I would
have to suspend the mystery
and sort through Dan Brown's


"truth." I found.it most diffi-
cult. It seems to me that if an
author is going to write a fic-
tional mystery novel, he or
she should not indulge him-
self or herself in attempting to
debunk a major world reli-
gion at the same time. In any
event, I guess the other 40
million readers didn't mind.
However, when it comes to
matters of fact and fiction, I
still believe they can be and
should be sorted out. With
Dan Brown's "Da Vinci" and
the recent stir caused by the
"coming out" of the Gospel of
Judas, Christianity has once
more been the target of "stick
and stone" attacks. Fortun-
ately, rebuttals and responses
to these attacks written by,
credible scholars are readily
available to the serious seek-
er, if there are many to be
found among tie 40 million
readers. Some people just
choose' to' hate Christianity
without bothering to look at
the details. It's my purpose
here to outline just a few of
the generally acknowledged
facts about early Christian
history. This is the kind of
information readily available
on the Internet or in a local
bookstore. Unfortunately, in
doing serious reading, you
may not find. a murder on
every page, nor an exciting
race through the streets of
Paris. Shucks!
When doing a serious
study, what you do find is a
reliable record of the apos-
tolic era and writings, placing
Matthew, Mark, Luke and
John (the four Biblical gospel
accounts) in sharp relief to
the gospels of Philip, Thomas,
Judas and others of the
"Gnostic" variety. The so
called "Gnostic" gospels sepa-
rate Jesus from his historical
context, setting forth a person,
significantly detached from


first-century Judaism. One
only needs to do a compari-
son reading of the biblical
gospels with the Gnostic
gospels to see what I mean.
Seriously take the chal-
lenge. Google the Gnostics.
See for yourself. The Gnostic
gospels reveal a preoccupa-
tion with escaping our fleshly
prison house with a view of
being absorbed into some
spirit realm, .sorting out an-
gelic beings, possessing secret
knowledge, and the align-
ments of stars and planets.
Reading some of them is like
reading astrology and bits of
wisdom from Confucius.
Significant coherent narrative
about the public or private
life of Jesus Christ is severely
lacking. What you find in
these so-called gospels are
mainly purported sayings of
Jesus, many of which, again,
don't reveal the warp and
woof of Jesus within first-cen-
tury Judaism. In addition,
none of the Gnostic gospels
date to the first century.
Attempts to place these
Gnostics within a first century
context have not been suc-
cessful in the world of acade-
mic textual criticism. None
are contemporary with the
apostolic era when the mem-
ories of the historic Jesus were
not only fresh (that is, eye wit-
nesses), but verifiable.
The biblical gospels pre-
sent Jesus completely contex-
tualized in the history of the
first century. The four biblical
gospels were already bound
- together in-some*'form before
the end of the 1st century and
were widely regarded in the
apostolic church as have
apostolic authenticity. Read
the introduction of Luke's
gospel and chapter 15 of
Paul's first letter to the

gospels is much more intrigu-
ing than the end of Dan
Brown's "Code." At the end of
Dan Brown's book, we find
our main character contem-
plating a longer romantic
relationship with his female
accomplice. With one 'of two
marriages ending in divorce
L-today-the--prospects of a
happy ending in Dan Brown's
world- view-aren't very likely.
We all need a story that -air
change us from the inside out.
We need a story that tells us
that the world can truly be set
to right, that we can experi-
ence true community, that we
can be forgiven our real sins,
the guilt of which we all carry
with us, and that we can live
purposeful and satisfying
'lives before the God who cre-
ated us.
Not only does Dan Brown's
book leave us with faulty
scholarship, but it eviscerates
any prospects of a true "hap-
pily ever after." If you are a
real seeker, why not join the
body of Christ this coming
Sunday as it meets together in
a "cathedral" (of sorts) near
you. Come learn and live the
"truth" f6r yourself and for
those you love. The truth
plays as well in real life as it
does in the book.
