City, firefighters make progress in talks


BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFF WRITER


After Tuesday's meeting
between negotiating teams
for the city of Venice and the
International Association of
Firefighters, the fifth this
year, and both sides said
they are continuing to make
pro gress toward a final agree-
ment.
na cordial but produc-
tive session, City Manager
Marty Black led off with an
explanation of the basis
upon which the city was
making its counteroffers re-
garding wages and other
items with fiscal impact..
"Labor costs, which in-
clude pay and insurance,
increased some 26 percent
during the past fiscal year of
2005-2006," he said, "but
during the same time, our
revenues from taxes in-

creased only 2 to 3 percent.
That leaves a substantial
gap we need to address in
some way and the gap
was even greater in the cou-
ple.of years preceding that."
As an example, Black said,
in the upcoming proposed
budget (which he is prepar-
ing for presentation to the
city council later this month);
the city will need to desig-
nate funds equal to "$11,000
per employee for the. city
cost of group insurance cov-
erage." That .amount is over
and above the portion em-
ployees must pay.
Black was quick to ac-
knowledge the city's appre-
ciation to the union for its
agreement last year to ac-
cept the same employee
deductions for health insur-
ance coverage as had already
been negotiated with the
other unions.


"'Having the same charges
across-the-board was an im-
portant step in our being
.able to keep insurance costs
as reasonable as .possible for
the sake of all employees," he
stated.
According to Black, the city
also is facing a substantial
cost impact over the next few
years from last year's negotia-
tions with the American
Federation of State, County
and Municipal Employees
(representing nonsupervisory
blue and white collar work-
ers), which resulted in com-
pressing their pay plan from
12 to six steps.
"Beyond that single, big
issue, there is also a gap be-
tween the across-the-board
pay increases which have
been negotiated and the
increases in revenue," he said.
These and a number of
unexpected cost items over


the past several months have
driven expenses very high in
relation to revenues.
"We have to get these
curves closer together for the
long-range well-being of the
city," said Black, "in order
to avoid the need for any
drastic measures such as lay-
offs or reduction of service
levels."
Offers and counteroffers
During the next three
hours the city and the union
discussed offers and coun-
teroffers related not only to
pay rates, but also: residency
requirements, tuition reim-
bursement, shift changing to
attend classes, vacations,.
sick leave, holidays, annual
physical exams, on-the-job

Sarasota County wasted
no time shooting back at
critics in the protracted fire
fight over the proposed Rails-
to-Trails trestles.
The U.S. Coast Guard re-
cently ordered that the Shak-
ett Creek trestle be removed
because it was an obstruc-
tion to navigation. The Coast
Guard also said the trestle
was "substandard" for pedes-
trian traffic. The trestle is a
key element in the trail de-
sign.
Former Raise the Bridge.
Committee President Jim
Christman, whose group had
advocated raising the trestle,
said recently the county
played politics on the trestle
issue. He said the county
knowingly bought "damaged
goods."
He said the county lost
on the trestle and lost on the
bridge over U.S. 41.
Not so, according, to at
least one county commis-
sioner.

"The county knew exactly

"There were no unknown

Plan B?
The county balked at
raising the trestle.
However, an earlier county
study revealed that it would
be more economical to tear
down the old wooden struc-
ture and 'replace it with a
brand, new concrete bridge
than restore the present
structure.
Raising the highway bridge
and the trestle would allow
larger boats to navigate the
Shakett Creek estuary. Critics
of raising the bridge said in

waterway wanted to raise

beach access



triggers debate


Commissioner Nora Patterson wants
the county to fight for public rights to shoreline,
but the county attorney thinks lawsuit


may be the only tack.

BY STEVENJ. SMITH'
STAFF WRITER

Does the public have the
right ,to walk the shoreline of
county beaches?
The question fueled heat-
ed words Tuesday between
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Nora Patterson and
County Attorney Stephen E.
DeMarsh:
Patterson contended the
public has had access to
Shell Beach on the north
end of Siesta Key for many
years and homeowners at
the waterfront have no right
to put up no trespassing
signs, as they did earlier this
year.
'. She said that if the com-
missioners did not stand up
for public access to the
beach, it would set a prece-
dent for other homeowners
to do the same.
"If we think it's OK for
(homeowners) tp block walk-


ers, there will come a day
when someone else thinks
it's OK," she said during a
regular board meeting.
But the county attorney
countered that this! was an
issue that had to be address-
ed on a case-by-case and
beach-by-beach basis.
"Lawsuits settle this, not
ordinances," DeMarsh said.
Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton referred everyone to a
memorandum supplied by
county staff members that
referenced the case lof Tona-
Rama and Wymbs Arvida
Corp. That memo said, "It is
necessary to show a time
period of use of longer dura-
tion ,... to establish a pre-
scriptive right. ... The actual
period of public use de-
scribed in Tona-Rama was
50-70 years." !

Alas, this frog had croaked.

No frogs? More mosquitoes

Venice is not done with drought problem yet


From the July 11, 1981, Gondolier Sun


BY DAVID MARTIN
STAFF WRITER


The countywide watering
ban ended Tuesday, but
Venice drought conditions
are heading for rock bottom
and officials here have no
intention of lifting the city
watering ban.
Water level tables on the
.city's well field are .worse off


now than a month ago when
the ban was implemented,
forcing two of the city's 31
wells to be shut down.
And this is even after the
city's winter population headed
north and mandatory watering
cutbacks effected close to a 30-
percent reduction in the city's
water consumption.
Despite optimistic reports
of county water level tables on

ing the city ban would undo'
the water conservation efforts
area citizens have begrudging-
ly gone along with while lawns
faded from. green to brown.
City Clerk Bernie Sim-
anskey told the Gondolier
Thursday the city should not
consider lifting the ban until
steady rains recharge area
water tables.
.. "I even have the resolution


to lift the ban drafted and
ready for the council to
attack," he said, "But we are
not getting any rain. Our
records at the water plant
show our water tables have
not recovered."
Simanskey recalled a 25-
page report from the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District dated July 2, instructing
municipalities and counties to
conserve water to the "maxi-
mum degree attainable."

CRA to discuss playhouse's future; county lot is possible site


The playhouse's 37,000-square-foot, 300-seat pro-
posal places a new theater on the Sarasota
County-owned Dearborn Street property between


Orange and Mango street

BY GAVIN OFF
STAFF WRITER

Lemon Bay Playhouse Qffi-
cials said a new 37,000-
square-foot theater could be
the tourist attraction
Dearborn Street has been
searching for.
Thursday, playhouse offi-


ts.

cials will make that pitch,
describing for the
Community Redevelopment
Agency Advisory Board their
proposed multi-story, multi-
room building with a capacity
to seat 300 theatergoers.
"What Dearborn Street
needs ... is something to
draw people onto Dearborn,"


Over the


said Jim Hanushek, president
of the playhouse's board of
trustees.
The playhouse's proposal
places a new theater on the
Sarasota County-owned
Dearborn Street property
between Orange and Mango
streets. According to CRA
Coordinator Chris Davis, the
site is 200 feet by 280 feet, but
could also include the neigh-
boring lot home to the
Quonset hut which mea-
sures 50 feet by 140 feet. A
nearby county-owned Green
Street parcel could alleviate


parking and stormwater con-
cerns.
"That's a possibility," Davis
said.
The current 6,000-square-
foot, 94-seat Lemon Bay
Playhouse, 96 W. Dearborn
St., is not adequate to serve
the growing community,
Hanushek said. The theater
regularly turns away about 10
people a show simply
because there is not enough
seating.
He said adding another
week of performances could
solve the problem, but that


top


wouldn't be fair to the the-
ater's 200 stagehands and
actors, all of whom are volun-
teers who already log about
eight weeks of rehearsing and
performing.
"That's (the volunteers')
evenings and weekends
shot," Hanushek said. 'And
when you look at the project-
ed growth for the area, we're
going to be turning more
away."
Local architect Elaine
Miller-Sanchez and the
Chicago architectural firm
Jerit/Boys helped develop the
site plan.
Like VLT
Plans call for meeting and
rehearsal rooms to surround
the main stage. Like the
Venice Little Theatre, the
playhouse would also include
a smaller, 80-seat black-box
stage for smaller shows. The
additional rooms allow per-
formances and rehearsals to
go on while the main stage is,
in use.
"That will take care of our
needs now and plus for the
next couple of years," said
Hanushek, adding that the-
ater space not being used
could then be rented out.
Davis said the rooms could
be used for community con-
certs, talent shows and the.
like. Hanushek said the new
space would also allow the
theater to increase its number
of yearly plays, which cur-
rently puts on six shows.
"I do think it's pretty excit-
ing," Davis said. "I think this is


the neatest thing to happen."
Davis said it is still unclear
what would happen to the
playhouse's old site.
Hanushek said the the-
ater's proposal calls for two
retail stores to front Dearborn
Street. The entrance to the
playhouse would be located
between them.
But even if county com-
missioners agree to donate
the property to the play-
house, they'd likely have to
help fund the $10 million to
$14 million project, as well.
"It will all depend on our
fundraising effort," Hanushek
said.
Hanushek said so far the
Dearborn Street site is the
only location the playhouse
has considered. But if the
move falls through,
Hanushek said the theater
could be forced to look else-
where.
"Our preference is to stay
on Dearborn Street, but
whether we could afford
Dearborn without the coun-
ty's assistance is another
question," Hanushek said.
The CRA meeting is sched-
ule for 1 p.m. Thursday at
Lemon Bay Park, 570 Bay Park
Blvd.
Davis said it was unlikely
the CRA would vote at the
meeting on whether to rec-
ommend the project: But
after a recommendation is
made, the issue would then
go before county commis-
sioners for a final vote.

GULF COAST HEARING AID CENTER

extend sincere praise for products and thoughtful service especially upon the first
year of operatic,. '

track record for over 30 years in Florida but in the Venice area they have been in
business less than one year and the many positive letters and comments have been
very rewarding.
For example: "From the.moment we visited Gulf Coast Hearing Aid Center and met
with Specialist Blair Post we knew it was the right decision. Mr. Post was very
concerned about getting my wife the best hearing instruments for her kind of hearing
loss. Blair was very thorough, took his time, and made us understand what my wife
needed to help her hearing. The aids arrived and she's amazed how well she can
hear now." A second consumer commented, "Mr. Post invited us for a cost free
consultation and testing with Gulf Coast Hearing Aid Centers state of the art equipment.
It was refreshing to find some one willing to work with ones present hearing aids
instead of insisting new aids were necessary all it took was frequency adjustment.
So for professional service and honesty of purpose, we recommend Gulf Coast Hearing
Center and Blair Post highly.
In closing, Blair Post has been praised by numerous area senior residencies for his
professional hearing aid seminars and individual screenings, consultations, and hearing
aid equipment checks. The consensus is that Blair has the personal touch with
humor and kindnesses that make seniors feel comfortable and confident.
Gulf Coast Hearing Aid Center is located at 4115 Tamiami Trail South, Venice.

"Providing Superior Care For
Your Pet While You Are Away"

Professional Pet Sitting is a full service pet care company.
What we do is care for your pet when you are not able to. Whether
you are taking a vacation or you simply work long hours we can be
there. Having a pet sitter come to your home has many advantages.
The pet is in their own environment where they feel safe that
alleviates any stress a pet may incur when being kenneled. Each
client is assigned their own sitter so the pet always has the same
person caring for them. This allows the pet to develop a bond with
the sitter. When the pet sitter comes to your home they will walk,
feed, scoop litter, clean any "messes" that may have been made,
allows play time and plenty of attention as well as basic home
maintenance such as retrieving mail and newspapers, taking out
trash and recyclables and alternating lights and blinds to make sure
your home has that "lived in" look. Professional Pet Sitting
also offers overnight services where a sitter will actually come and
stay in your home when you are away. Your sitter can transport your
pet to their groomer or veterinarian for appointments and is also able
to administer medications and injections if needed for your pet.
Professional Pet Sitting is licensed, bonded and insured. We
won "Best of Venice" and Venice Area Chamber of Commerce's
"Business of the year" in 2005. As well as being a member of the
Venice Chamber we are also members of Gulf Coast Pet Sitters
Association and we hold a board seat for National Association of
Professional Pet Sitters. You can visit us on the web at

VENICE GONDOLIER SUN 5A


School board likely to change proposed budget


BY RACHEL BROWN HACKNEY
PELICAN PRESS

Given their comments
about the proposed 2006-07
budget at their last regular
meeting, it seems likely the
members of the Sarasota
County School Board will do
some trimming before the
document becomes official in
September.
After proposing in April
that the school district be
more conservative in its
appropriations for the next
fiscal year, holding to a 4.8-
percent increase in the bud-
get, Superintendent Gary
Norris presented a modified
plan in June that reflected a 9-
percent hike. In accompany-
ing documentation, Norris
pointed out that the available
funding for the district next
year would rise by about $44
million, whereas revenue
increased by about $33 mil-
lion from the 2004-05 fiscal
year to 2005-06.
The Sarasota County prop-
erty appraiser, he wrote in


material distributed at the
June 6 meeting, had projected
a 24-percent increase in the
tax roll. However, Norris
added, that also meant the
school millage rate would
decline again. That rate was
7.861 for the 2005-06 budget;
it is projected to be 7.287 for
next year's spending plan.
At 3 p.m. on Wednesday,
July 19, Norris is to make a
formal presentation to the
school board of his tentative
budget and millage rates. A
public hearing on the spend-
ing plan will be held at 5:15
p.m. on Tuesday, July 25, in
the board's chambers at 1980
Landings Blvd. in Sarasota. A
second public hearing is set
for Tuesday, Sept. 12, when
the budget and millage rates
are to be adopted.
During their evaluation of
Norris on June 20, three of the
five board members voiced
concerns about the budget.
Vice Chairman Frank Kovach
talked of "getting too far
ahead of ourselves with the
operating budget."

Board member Laura
Benson stated, "I don't like
the product that was present-
ed," adding she thought there
was "an awareness that we
need another budget policy
or, at least, an examination of
our budget practices."
Unsupported
Chairwoman Carol Todd
voiced the greatest concerns.
Referring to Norris' NeXt
Generation Learning Plan and
its goals to enable students to
compete well in a 21st-century
world, she said, "I cannot sup-
port deficit spending to
achieve the vision." The board
could not allow district appro-
priations to exceed revenues,
she added.
At the end of this budget
year, the fund balance, or
rainy day fund, is to total
$49.7 million, down from


$61.6 million at the end of the
2004-05 budget year. For the
2006-07 budget year, the end-
ing fund balance is projected
to drop to $46.5 million. The
unrestricted portion of the
balance this year is $36.2 mil-
lion; in 2006-07, Norris esti-
mated it would be $33.6 mil-
lion.
In a telephone interview,
Todd pointed out the need for
the district to develop a bud-
get that does not use nonre-
curring revenue for recurring
expenses. It was up to the
board members to be good
stewards of their financial
resources, she said to max-
imize the utilization of the
dollars available "and have
the same or greater level of
service for students."
By the numbers
The 2005-06 actual budget


is about $372.7 million, down
from the projected $376 mil-
lion because of a decline in
anticipated growth in student
enrollment. In April, Norris
said the 2006-07 budget
would be $394 million.
However, on June 6, his figure
had grown to $409.5 million.
In that second budget
Norris presented to the
board, direct school spending
is to increase by 8 percent
from 2005-06 to 2006-07 -
from $269.1 million to $292.8
million.
Direct school costs are those
related to instruction, pupil
support services, instructional
media services, instructional
technology services and com-
munity services, according to
district materials distributed at
the meeting.
School support funding
would increase about 13 per-


cent, from $72.7 million to
$83.2 million. That category
covers instruction and cur-
riculum development, in-
structional staff training,
school administration, trans-
portation and food service,
among other expenses.
District support funding
would rise approximately 9
percent, from $27.1 million to
$29.7 million. Those expenses
relate to administrative tech-
nology services, fiscal ser-
vices, central services and
maintenance of plant.
The lowest increase was
accorded the district admin-
istration category of expendi-
tures those covering the
board of education, legal ser-
vices and general administra-
tion. That part of the budget
was slated to go up 2 percent,
from $3.78 million to $3.85
million.

OUR VIEW




Senators our last hope to protect coast


alifornia Rep. Richard Pombo and key
Republicans in the House of Repre-
sentatives had their way last Thurs-
day. However, their success in passing a bill
that would allow oil and gas drilling near
Florida's coastline still has a major obstacle
to clear in Florida Senators Bill Nelson (D)
and Mel Martinez (R).
Pombo has sought for more than a year
to pass legislation to drill in the Gulf of
Mexico as soon as, or even sooner than, a
moratorium expires in 2012.
The push for oil and gas drilling in the
Gulf of Mexico is misguided and funda-
mentally flawed.
While supporters of drilling in the Gulf of
Mexico argue that there have been no major
oil platform spills since Santa Barbara


California in 1969 and there have been no
major environmental damage done from
natural gas drilling there is still some risk.
The question is what level of risk should
Floridians be subject to?
In 2005, the National Response Center
reported 1,395 "incidents" of hazardous
materials being released from oil platforms
in the gulf. Almost all of these spills were
small and had no real impact, but the data
clearly show there is risk associated with
drilling in the gulf.
A Dec. 21, 2005, Bradenton Herald article
reported a Transocean drilling rig drifted for
80 miles before it was captured. During
Hurricane Ivan in 2004, a Taylor Energy
platform sank and spilled 17,000 gallons of
oil off the Louisiana coast.


The National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration's Office of Response and
Restoration reported that 7 million gallons
*of oil were released into the gulf from 44
sites on land during Hurricane Katrina.
There were also 64 spills associated with
gulf platforms during Katrina and reports
that some rigs simply sank or floated away
and crashed into bridges.
Supporters of drilling would argue that
none of these recent incidents produced
major damage like the Santa Barbara oil
platform spill in 1969 or the Exxon Valdez
spill in 1989, and therefore the risk to
*Florida's coast is minimal.
, Even if we accept that the risk is minimal,
we would argue that it should be the state of
Florida's choice whether to accept that risk.


, The state of Florida is a leader in looking
toward our future by preserving our en-
vironment. If Louisiana, Texas or Missis-
sippi wants to accept the risks that go with
drilling and gain the royalties and refineries
that go with that decision, that should be
their choice. They should not be making
the choice for Florida.
Foley and Mack have said they are hold-
ing out hope the Senate will block the
Pombo bill. It is a great responsibility to
place on Nelson and Martinez, but one we
believe they can shoulder with success -
even if it comes down to a filibuster, which
has been threatened.
Whether you believe drilling in the gulf is
a danger to the environment, or not, Florida
should have control of its own coastline.


Big bucks ride


on council votes


"
ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST


In writing on new council
member, Jim Woods, I asked
him if he would consider not
accepting campaign contri-
butions from people with
material interests (large dol-
lars) dependent on council
decisions. I mentioned I in-
tended to ask each person
who runs for council that
question. Woods said he
would give it serious thought.
We all read, almost daily,
about the undue influence of
campaign contributions on
public officials in Tallahassee
or Washington. Closer to
home, our representative,
Katherine Harris has, in two
separate campaigns, received
illegal campaign contribu-
tions. Harris pleaded igno-
rance of the illegality, al-
though she admits having a
very expensive dinner (some
reports are it cost thousands
of dollars, although how that
is possible has not been de-
tailed).
She also had conversa-
tions with the contractor
about raising campaign
funds. She then tried to get
appropriations for the firm
in question, saying it would
benefit her district.
Well, you can make of that
what you will; campaign con-
tributions and big money
influence, directly or indirect-
ly, what many political offi-
cials decide. Separating offi-
cials, voluntarily, from people
who clearly want to influence
them through campaign
contributions seems like a
good idea.
Here in Venice, City Man-
ager Marty Black and Plan-
ning and Zoning Director
Tom Slaughter kindly pre-
sented, in a workshop for-
mat, a plan to city council
dealing with developer
Michael Miller's proposal for
the 2.8-acre area between
East Tampa and East Venice
avenues, near the Intracoastal
Waterway. (It is not clear why
city staff should present a pri-
vate developers plan, but
that is another question.)
There is an additional, re-
lated small parcel that is riot
planned for condo/hotel de-
velopment, but may include
a restaurant and other fa-
cilities.
The main plot would pri-
marily house a condo/hotel


with 288 units, suggesting a
density of about 100 units
per acre. The present legal
maximum under the city's
code is 36 units per acre for
a hotel, less for other resi-
dential structures.
How much gross revenue
from this project might one
expect to see? One half the
units, 144, are proposed to
be 400 square feet. Another
144 are planned for 800
square feet, and would in-
clude a living room, dining
room and kitchen.
The units could be com-
bined into a two-bedroom
1,200-square-foo1t unit. That
would be a significant suite
for a hotel renter, but make
a nice condo for longer-term
use, not what most folks
supporting the development
want.
The hotel part, rather than
another condo, is what has
appeal to merchants and
council members who have
spoken on the topic at meet-
ings.
Suppose these units sold
for $300,000 for the smaller
ones and $500,000 for the
larger. That would be gross
revenue from sales of $115.2
million. (Revenues from any
retail space, etc. would be
extra.)
Let's discount those prices
to $250,000 for the smaller
and $400,000 for the larger.
That would gross about $84
million. So it's not too un-
reasonable to consider this
project might develop rev-
enues of $100 million, plus
or minus.
Now, where is the public
policy issue?
The original John Nolen
plan for Venice pictured
four-story buildings. As the
original developers lost con-
trol of the city's real estate,
that opened the door for the
higher buildings now pres-
ent. Miller's 105-foot towers
are the ,most recent and
most disturbing of the
height incursions, since they
are the most visible to all
coming and going into the
city from the north and east.
Miller has proposed earlier
versions of projects for this
site at seven stories and
some report eight or nine
stories, but those have not
been widely made public.
The current plan is six
stories, and city staff has
said that going down to five
stories might require sac-
rificing some desirable ele-
ments of the project.
At least some council
members would prefer to see
four stories in this down-
town area, and that height
limit has been discussed con-
cerning other projects, height
overlay districts, etc.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Coast Guard has better things to do


Editor:
Many residents would favor a recreational marina at the
airport, but only if it excluded the large boats that would
increase costly bridge opening delays.
For example, City Attorney Bob Anderson at his proposed
$175 per-hour rate would lose more than $3 per minute
waiting for a single sailboat.
Further planning for the marina should be halted until
written notice is received from the Coast Guard that it will
not promote the "rights" of large boat owners to use the
marina.
Bikers and hikers recently learned that the rails-to-trails
path in Nokomis will be delayed. Just a mile to the west,
improvements are finally underway on U.S. 41.
Delays in completion of the trail and U.S. 41 improvements
occurred when the Coast Guard insisted that original plans
be scrapped to include raising of bridges to please a handful
of recreational boaters.
We all applaud the efforts of the Coast Guardcto stop ter-
rorists, drug dealers and illegal immigrants from entering
Florida. But significant failures still occur.
Perhaps the Coast Guard should explain to Jeb and George
Bush why it is diverting already inadequate resources from
fighting terrorism to fighting decisions of local governments
that best serve the needs of all the people.

It's time to
reinstate
the draft
Editor:
I do not understand all
this talk about what we
should do with the enemy
we have captured. We are at
war; the rightness or wrong-
ness of this war will be set-
tled by history. Our job now
is to bring this war to an end
by beating the enemy any
place he is willing to fight us.
There is no doubt it will
be a long war. Read your
history: The price of freedom
is not cheap. The burden for
fighting should not rest on I
percent of our population, it


should involve all Ameri-
cans.
Flag-waving is good; car-
ing is better. Our president
has said it will be a long
war, so a draft, with no excep-
tions, would give all Ameri-
cans a chance to share in the
fruits of victory.
The men we have captur-
ed are POWs and should be
placed in POW camps until
the war is over.
Jefferson once said, "The
tree of liberty must be nour-
ished from time to time with
the blood of tyrants and pa-
triots alike." So put all your
dreams on hold, because if
we do not win this war all


our dreams for America are
just pipe dreams.

Vote for true
Americans
Editor:
Several days ago, the U.S.
Senate defeated an amend-
ment banning the burning of
the American flag. It is im-
portant for readers to note
some of those who voted
"no" regarding this proposal;
the list includes Joseph Biden
(Delaware), Hillary Rodham
Clinton (New York), Chris-
topher Dodd (Connecticut),
Russell Feingold (Wisconsin)
and John Kerry (Massas-
scusetts) ironically, all De-
mocrats who are considered
possible presidential con-
tenders. Leadership?
Another well-known
name, Tom Gallagher (run-
ning for Florida governor)
has certainly shown his
"qualifications": infidelity,
drugs, improper use of gov-
ernment equipment for per-
sonal investing. And what
else? Oh yes: When he was
in charge of the state insur-
ance department, he denied
help to thousands who were
defrauded by a viatical scam
- and now he is still active
as our chief financial officer.
Leadership?
The decision to exercise
our right to vote is so impor-
tant. Prudent choices must
be made on a candidate's
true Americanism and eth-
ical background.

Short-sighted
decision on
tall tower
Editor:
The Venice Planning Com-
mission's recent vote to deny
Stewart Haag's 68-foot anten-
na not only denies Mr. Haag's
right to have the antenna
guaranteed under the FCC
rules, but also causes Mr.
Haag undue expense in at-
torney's fees.
We should applaud Mr.
Haag for being prepared to
help with emergency com-
munications in the Venice
area. Should we have severe
storms this season, we will
certainly need his expertise

Editor:
Please quit using selective
data to make a point in your

In "Our View" of July 5,
you cited an increase of 67
percent in motorcycle deaths
from 2000 to 2004 and an
increase of "unhelmeted"

You omitted two very
important facts: Before 2000,
all riders were required,
by law, to wear a helmet.
Obviously when that law
was repealed there were
many more people riding
"helmetless," hence, more
"helmetless" deaths.

Lessons of
a lifetime
Editor:
At the time that our presi-
dent's father was running for
president, he and his party
used the word "liberal," with-
out defining it, in such a way
that it sounded like "mother
killer" and scared people who
did not know any better.
Now this president and
his party are using the words
"cut and run" in a way that
sounds as if we should be
ashamed. The only thing for
which we should be asham-
ed is for telling the Iraqis
and the world that the Iraqi
people still need us there.
Every good teacher knows
that you tell your students
that they can do it, not that
they cannot. You tell your
students that they do not
need your help, that they
can do it on their own. "The
little train that could", theory
works.
If we pulled out all of our
troops right now, we should
not be ashamed, but should
be glad that we accomplish-
ed what we went to Iraq to
do. That is not "cut and run";
that is a beginning of a new
democratic government in
an old country.
Education is starting on a
life of learning; it is not fin-
ishing. One does not end


MARTIN frornPage6A
Others are saying, well, five
or six stories would make the
Miller towers more palatable
aesthetically. Nice sounding,
but follow the money.
To use some admittedly
simplistic math that assumes
rhat the stories are of similar
revenue potential (which
would not be true if floor
one is for parking or retail
use), each of the six stories
is worth about $16 million. If
we want to eliminate the
first floor, each of the other
floors is worth about $20
million in revenue.
A decision to limit the
building to four stories
would, therefore, have sub-
stantial impact, although
that might be mitigated by
changing the size of suites
to allow for more units, dif-
ferent pricing, etc.
Now, 288 units is more
than are found in many
condo/hotels in smaller cit-
ies. There are condo/hotels
in Naples and elsewhere in
Florida at about 100 units.
The Sarasota Cay Club is
offering about 150 room
units and suites in two-story
frame buildings associated
with a marina for $220,000
up for one-room units.
If Venice does not generate
the hotel tourist revenue to
fill 288 units, will the project
morph into, a condo? It is not
an unreasonable question,
yet approval, seemingly, will
be based on the assumption
of its hotel-like character.
This leads us to members
of the council who all (save
appointee Woods) have re-
ceived the bulk of their cam-
paign funding from Citizens
for Quality Government, in
which Miller and his attor-
neys are prime movers.
Council's decision on height
may-well play the interests
of the citizens, most of
whom appear to favor lower
heights three and four
stories against a powerful,
influential campaign con-
tributor who wants more
millions from greater heights.
Can you connect the dots?

Where next-
our houses?

Editor:
Ban smoking outside!
Where do we live? The U.S.A.
you say. Really? I do believe
that cigarettes are still legal.
Yes, I agree smokers need
to be more aware of tossing
them everywhere, but come
on, ban smoking in the great


outdoors, the beach? What
about the people who throw
trash there and leave it, soda
cans, beer bottles, diapers
and the like? Should we ban
drinking and children at the
beach, too?
Smokers, this is our fault.
Be more aware and conscious
of where you discard your:.,
waste. It's bad enough the,
rap we get in restaurants,


bars and even baseball fields
that we can't enjoy a peaceful
smoke, but to get nonsmok-
ers off our backs, please pick
up. your butts when you
pick up your chairs and tow-
els, or they will stop us from
enjoying our cigarettes at the
beach, too.
Pretty soon we will not be
able to smoke our legal ciga-
rettes in our own homes.


So, smokers, be aware this
is legal and our right. Yes, peo-
ple, we do know that they are
bad for us, but so are some
foods, our air, medications
and some jobs too. But we
choose to do this, so leave us
alone, get a life, find some
other course to harp on!

A recent "legal analysis" by
the county attorney's office
delved into a lengthy history
of Shell Beach and conceded
that in 1981 the 12th Circuit


Court ruled the county had
"abandoned" the former
road and released its "inter-
est" in the right-of-way.
But it concluded, the "wet
sandy beach area" belongs
to the public, and the public
may also have an access
claim to privately owned "dry
sand beach" if there is proof
it has historically been open
for "customary uses" such as
fishing, walking and sun-
bathing.
The right to walk "water-
ward of the mean high tide"


stems from English common
law. It has been adopted by
Florida and 47 other states,
but communities that allow
shoreline homes, seawalls
and other such structures
create conflicts with private
property owners.
No specific action was
taken by the commissioners
to resolve the issue.

LET 'EM HAVE IT! WHAT o 0
Loc- al flag AlFi. vet g r


Local flags aren't very grand


Flagging. I'm calling in regard to the lack of care of our flag.
I travel up and down the trail from north of Sarasota to south of
Englewood, and I've noticed, especially on Flag Day, how our
flags are not being properly cared for. I mean, the flag at a salon
- that's disgusting, it's just a disgrace. It's ripped right below
the stars and it's ripped in half, yet they're still flying it. It looks
like it's baby blue and pink, not red, white and blue. And the
flag at the veteran's cemetery down in Englewood what a
disgrace for the veterans. I can't believe anybody would hang
that or fly that. There's just no respect anymore for the great
American flag. I'm just really upset that anybody would fly a
flag that is so tattered and torn. I did call a couple of different
businesses and they were nice and took the flags down until
they could replace them. However, the ones that I have called,
they're still flying them. Englewood Water District, this is
another one that is a disgrace. I just can't believe it. There's no
respect for the American flag. I'd be embarrassed to fly a flag
that looked that bad. You can get a flag for $10 or $15. Come on,
American people, get with it. This flag we should fly it with
pride and be proud that it's ours. I'm just ashamed to say there's
no respect for the flag.


No flag. I would like to
know why the Coast Guard
station on the Venice Beach
did not have an American flag
flying on Flag Day. I went by
twice because I thought I was
cracking up but there was no
flag on Flag Day at the Coast
Guard station. It's hard for me
to believe.
Editor's note: The building
isn't a staffed Coast Guard sta-
tion.
Reaping. I would like to
comment on Sharky's restau-
rant. When that came up for
bid, as I recall, no one wanted
to take the chance on a new
business. They took the
chance and now they're reap-
ing their rewards: I wish these
people who moved down
here that think they can get in
on the bandwagon would
stop to think about it before
they get all rambunctious.
Those boys have worked very
hard for what they have.
Mangroves gone. I would
like to comment on Colonia
Lane in Nokomis.
Improvements were great,
but did the company that was
doing the construction of
moving the 'fees out of the
way get permission to
destroy, damage and remove
the mangroves? Aren't they a
protected species here in
Florida? The regular home-
owner that lives on the bays
has to get permission to trim

these. Did they? Please let us
know.
How cheap. Now waiting
four weeks for a follow up
about the cheap county
bridges. In fact, there are
37,000 local subscribers wait-
ing. They may not be sub-
scribers for long. Now that
the cleaning and maintenance
outfits that run these bridges
in South County, as well as
Tampa, St. Pete and the other
coast, are paying $2 an hour,
approximately, less for the
same responsibilities, now
they can go ahead and leave.
We have many, many appli-
cants among migrant workers
that will last us for another five
years. It seems as though they
enjoy working in an air-condi-
tioned building. I ask you,
how cheap can we get. and
how ridiculous can this town
be? It's not the town, it's the
people that run it. Cheap,
cheap, cheap. What a shame. -
EDITOR'S NOTE: The people


who staff the bridge aren't city
employees.
Congestion. I'm calling
about Mike Miller's proposed
new project in downtown
Venice along the waterfront.
I'm sure both of the projects
are very nice and I'm not
against growth and building,
but the real question, as I see
it, is how will you deal with
the traffic? In that part of
town, there isn't enough
space right now for the cars
that are on the road. Please -
roads are the top issue in
Venice today and it's a prob-
lem everywhere,
Illegal. I just received a pre-
recorded phone call from the
National Democratic Party
telling me to sign on to a Web
site. Does the Democratic
Party not know that pre-
recorded messages are illegal?
Will some Democrat out there
please tell their party not to
call me anymore with their
pre-recorded message?
Palmed off. It really upset
me this week when I saw the
pictures of the palm trees at
the north entrance to Venice.
Some had been cut off at mid-
trunk and some uprooted and
thrown on the ground. They
were treated as useless weeds.
They surely could have been
sold to local businesses or res-
idents. When I think of the
many thousands of dollars
that were spent recently on
palms trees from out of
Florida, that were bought,
shipped here and.planted -to
enhance the looks of our
streets and the city, it makes
me sick to see this'recent
waste. Shame on the brainless
person who was responsible
for allowing that to happen.

National 11-12s are district champs


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

There was one heckuva
celebration at Bogey's Tues-
day night.
Of course, that is in order
after you've won a 'Little
League district championship.
The Venice National 11-12
year old All Stars pulled off the
feat with a sweet 6-3 victory
over Sarasota Florida at Chuck
Reiter Field 2.
The Nationals, who, fin-
ished 4-2 in the District 16
tournament, advance to sec-
tional play, which begins July
21. The sectional will, be
played in Venice.
Venice National got a huge
home run from an unlikely
source and six solid innings
from ace pitcher Michael
Knott to bring the district title
back to Venice.
The big hero was 12-
year-old outfielder John
D'Arcangelis, a little lefty with
a big swing.
The biggest swing in his
career came in the top of the
fourth inning. The score was
tied 1-1. The bases were
loaded. D'Arcangelis belted a
long fly ball that just cleared
the centerfield fence. The


grand slam turned out to be
the difference.
Ryan Golembeski followed
D'Arcangelis' dinger with a
long home run to left off of
Sarasota reliever, Brian Frost.
Now 6-1, Venice National
was in total control.
Sarasota Florida did rally
for a couple of runs in the bot-
tom of the sixth, but Knott
ended the game with a strike-
out with the bases juiced.
Knott pitched a complete
game. He gave up six hits, had
three walks and struck out
nine.
Sarasota took a 1-0 lead in
the third inning on an RBI
double by Kevin Guthrie.
Guthrie also had another RBI
double in the sixth inning.
Venice pushed across all six
of its runs in the fourth.
Venice chased Sarasota
Florida starter Trevor Wilson
with singles by Christian
Santiago and Wes Ojeda.
Sarasota manager Mark
Guthrie went to Frost. Coop-
er Hammond worked a walk
to load the sacks. Michael
Friend sent a comebacker to
the mound that was knocked
down, but no play could be
made. The score was 1-1.
Tyler Atwell grounded to


third and the force was made
at the plate.
That brought up

SARASOTA FLORIDA 8,
VENICE NATIONAL 3 -
Sarasota Florida forced a
deciding game on Tuesday
night by winning, this game
Monday night at Chuck
Reiter.
Venice National could
have clinched the district title
with a victory .
National had trouble
putting anything together
against pitcher Jordan Chupp.
He allowed four hits and
fanned five in 5 1/3 innings.
Meanwhile, Sarasota Flor-
ida had no problems hitting
against Venice National.
The Sarasota team scored
twice in the second inning
and tacked on three more in
the third to assume control
at 5-0. Trevor Wilson belted
a two-run homer in the
third.
Sarasota Florida got an-
other home run in the fifth
inning by Dillon Mailloux.
Trailing 8-0, National
scored three times with the
lightning closing in. Jake
Wildasin had a RBI single.

Round 3 of Nationals vs. Americans in 9-10s


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

The way Terry Tritschler sees it, it's
better to lose early in a tournament than
late in a tournament.
Sure, he didn't like it when his Venice
National 9-10 All Stars fell to Venice
American in pool play of the District 16
Tournament last week. .
SB'u e also. knew flharthe most likelyvr
6Would be seeingAmerican again.
Monday night's second meeting at
Chuck Reiter No. 2 was much more
meaningful, to say the least
The District 16 9-10s are now in
championship bracket play.
The Nationals took a big step towards
capturing their second straight, district
crown with a 2-0 victory over the
Americans.
Nick Longhi was overpowering on the
mound, firing a two-hitter and striking
out 11. The lefty was also effective in the
first meeting between the two teams. He
got a no decision and left the game with
the score tied 2-2. American went on to


win in eight innings, 8-3.
It was a different story this time.
National scored both its runs in the.
second inning. Josh Grubbs had a dou-
ble to score B.J. Morse with the first run.
Morse had also reached on a double.
Tyson Albert walked, moved up on
Grubbs' two-bagger, and scored on a
groundout.
Dan Barrett pitched ,a fine, game for.
American in defeat.
National -now plays rival Venice
American again in the finals. The first
game is scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday.
If American wins, another deciding
game will be played Thursday.
VENICE AMERICAN 9, EAST CEN-
TRAL SARASOTA 1 American won
this losers bracket game Tuesday night at
Chuck Reiter 4, eliminating the Sarasota
squad.
American now advances to the finals
against rival Venice National. The teams
have spilt two games in the tournament
so far. American would have to beat
National two more times to win the dis-
trict title.


American trailed Sarasota 1-0 until
the fourth inning, where the locals
erupted for five runs. Rhett Dinka had a
double. Charlie Jerla singled. Joey Buncik
walked. Dalton Tritschler singled. The
big blow was a three-run homer by
Michael Farr.
American scored four more in the
fifth. Dinka, Jerla and Dan Barrett had
.homers ..
Jerla pitched a three-hitter for the As.
VENICE NATIONAL 12, EAST CEN-
TRAL SARASOTA 1 The Nats won the-
first game of the championship bracket,
belting East Central Sarasota in a Sunday
morning special at Chuck Reiter.
The Nats jumped out to a 5-0 lead in
the first inning and continued the
onslaught the next four frames before
mercy stopped the carnage.
Brett Smith, Danny Raynor and Nick
Longhi led the offense with three hits
apiece. Raynor and Longhi each drove in
a pair of runs. Josh Grubbs and B.J.
Morse had two baggers.
Grubbs pitched four frames. Ben Reid
threw in the fifth and Smith finished up.

Close and up front at the World Cup in Germany


BY MICHAEL LASORSO
SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUN

This was the year our
time. We were going to the
World Cup, the largest sport-
ing event in the world, held
only once every four years
because of its magnitude.
We decided four years ago
to put our plan into action. I
needed to experience this
incredible event first hand -
as a family, my wife, daughter,
son and myself.
The timing was as close to
perfect as we could hope for
- business, jobs, school -
everything was to be put
hold.
All the planning in the
world is not complete with-
out game tickets.
We started our quest for
tickets through FIFA, the
world governing body of soc-
cer that distributes tickets for
all the games.
The tickets are distributed
by lottery, so eight months
before the games we enter
two lotteries no tickets.
Just five months before the
World Cup, we scored tickets
for only one game U.SA.
vs. Italy. They're our two
favorites. It's everything we
hoped for.

The trip
June 5 We are ready to
go. Our first stop is Italy. We
needed to get some back-,
ground on the Italian fans.
The Italians are passionate
about their food and their
football. The Azzuri. The Blue.
They are not interested in the
31 other teams involved.
We spent eight days sam-
pling the food, wine and spir-
it.
June 14 -Three days to
game time and we are head-
ing to Germany. Twenty-four
hours before the game, we
arrive in Bingen, 50 miles out-
side of Kaiserslauten, our des-
tination, but it's as close as wee


Venice's Mike Lasorso shows off the tickets he copped for the USA vs. Italy World Cup match he and his family attended in
Germany.


can get. We are on a direct
train route. The Germans
have an incredible mass tran-
sit system, which spectators
rode for free with aWorld Cup
ticket.
Germany was well orga-
nized and extremely friendly
and the Germans love fuss-
ball. People were in the beer
gardens until late at night
watching every game. It
seemed like all Germans took
it upon themselves to make
the town and country the best
hosts that they could be.
FIFA sets up a huge fan
zone near a park. Fan Zone is
all about fun it's loud
music, dancing, football and
beer. Every country has peo-
ple in the Fan Zone -

Game day
Game day we leave for
Kaiserslauten on the train. It's
nine hours before game time
and we're ready to bust. We're
not sure where we are going
once we get there, but we
befriend two teenage
German boys who offer their
assistance. When we get off
the train, they make sure we
are OK and point us in the
right direction. They say
goodbye and hope for a U.S.
victory..
Seven hours before game-
time we're in Kaiserslauten.
The downtown streets are
i i t il ,, I '


closed to cars and they are
lined with vendors, music
and people a lot of people
.... 100,000 people. Nowwe are
starting to get the feel for the
World Cup. Everywhere, the
Italian fans are marching
around in groups singing and
waving huge flags.
The American fans are
quiet and looking nervous
about the game. One of the
smallest countries at the
games is little Trinidad and
Tobago, but they were out in
force. Even though they were
not playing in this town on
this day, they still had their
own parade complete with
steel drums, dancers and
singers. The World
Cup experience is ramping
- 1- -1- -A -


up, one i
everyone s
pictures w


it's still six hours to game
time. Everyone is not going to
the game, but they are here to
feel the experience.
Two hours to gametime,
we start to make our way into
the stadium. The stadium sits
on a hill overlooking the city.
It's a long walk up. The Italian
fans are still singing. The
Americans look ,nervous.
We're on the stadium grounds
now and at the first check-
point, we're amazed at what
they let you take in whis-
tles, drums, etc. Nothing like
a game in the States.
At the second checkpoint,
everyone gets a pat down
without one complaint from
anyone.We enter the stadium


and it's one hour to game
time. We go for food and
drinks. The Italians are still
singing. Half hour to game
time, the stadium is loud,
louder than any sporting
event I have ever been to, and
we're still outside.
Out of nowhere, the U.S.
fans start their chant "da da-
da da da U.S." over and over,
louder and louder. We drown
out the Italians. Now you
know why the U.S. is such a
special place because peo-
ple come from everywhere
and anywhere, but they unite
as one voice.
Game time
The players are warming
up. The Italians look confi-
dent, the Americans nervous.
The tension and emotions are
so thick, that it's in the air and
you can feel it. The teams
enter the field. The sight, and
sounds it's all too surreal.
I'm looking out, realizing a
lifelong dream, to take part in
the World Cup. And I under-
stand more of why this is the
world's game. Everyone
knows the rules (except the
referee who gave four ejec-
tions and basically ruined the
game), fans and players alike.
The final result did not go
America's way, but the fans
pour out as one, happy group
wishing nothing but the best
for all.
It takes hours to get back to
the hotel and several days
later we arrived back in the
U.S. to watch Italy take the
World Cup. (
This was the sporting
event of a lifetime. Now to get
plans for South Africa in 2010

A closer look at the





Little Salt Spring


BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR

Trained archaeologists
were at Little Salt Spring to
give area residents the low-
down on the site.
And in the case of North
Port's most famous archaeo-
logical site, "lowdown" means
just that: about 250 feet, the
depth of the sinkhole.
The sinkhole is a classic
cenotee," a sinkhole caused
by the erosion of limestone by
underground water. It is fed
by underwater springs, and
except for the water close to
the surface, it is devoid of oxy-
gen in much of its depth.
Since 1992, the University
of Miami has been excavating
and studying Little Salt
Spring, on Price Boulevard


just west of Heron Creek
Middle School. The site is
believed to have served as an
oasis for migratory early resi-
dents of Florida, a convenient
stopping place where they
could get water and food.
Humans were believed to
have used Little Salt Spring as
many as 12,000 years ago.
Artifacts found in the spring,
including carved and shaped
wood tools and some intrigu-
ing carved greenstone pen-
dants, provide just a glimpse
of the people who may have
stopped here on their way to
the coast.
Much of what is now
underwater was dry land
more than 9,000 years ago.
During the glacial era, much
of the earth's surface water
was tied up in ice, and the


seacoast was perhaps 100
miles further west.
Archaeologists and students
from the University of Miami
gave tours, leading dozens of
visitors out to the dock that
straddles the sinkhole and
guiding them through the lab-
oratories where they could see
some of the artifacts that have
been retrieved from the depths.
Divers were also on hand
to demonstrate how their
meticulous work is done.
Most of the excavation at this
site is underwater at depths of
more than 20 meters. The
work can be very tedious due
to the care that must be taken
with delicate artifacts.

Hoffman at shoffman@sun-

Opera goal is near
Sarasota Opera is more
than half-way to its $60-mil-
lion capital campaign goal.
Officially launched in March,
Building on the Vision The
Campaign for Sarasota Opera,
set a goal of $60 million,
which includes $20 million
for the renovation, beautifica-
tion, and historic preserva-
tion of the 80-year-old Opera
house; $10 million for endow-
ment; and an additional $30
million in Legacy Gifts. To
date, through pledges and
donations from opera
patrons and corporate spon-
sors, more than $30 million
has been realized, including
$11.1 million for the renova-
tion; $11 million for endow-
ment; and nearly $10 million
in Legacy Gifts.
Although actual construc-
tion is not slated to begin until
March 2007, a host of archi-
tects, engineers and other
restoration specialists have
been working on site to
ensure the opera house will
be restored to the grandeur of
its early days in time for its
grand reopening in March
2008.
Among the improvements
planned, the opera will
increase the size of the
orchestra pit, upgrade the
lighting and backstage rigging
systems, expand public areas
and amenities for patrons,
and increase access for peo-
ple with disabilities.
The slightly shortened
2007 Winter Opera Festival
season will run from Jan. 27-
March 4, beginning with
Giacomo Puccini's "Madama
Butterfly." Sarasota Opera's
Masterworks Revival Series
will return when Poland's
national opera "Halka," by
Stanislaw Moniuszko opens
on Feb. 3. The final opera of
the season will be Verdi's dra-
matic "Attila," continuing
Sarasota Opera's Verdi Cycle
when it opens on Feb. 17. The
season will conclude on the
evening of March 4 with the
Spring Gala Concert: A
Celebration of the Sarasota

Jimmie Close of Venice has a collection of more than 250,000 matchcovers; part of which is on display through August at the Francis T. Bourne Jacaranda Library.


A Venice man has traveled the backroads of the
United States to collect matches from every
county seat in the country. In. a few places he has
struck out.

In the art world miniatures
can include anything from
tiny oil paintings or cameos
to postage stamps and
matchbooks.
"People collect little pieces
of paper from different
places," Venice resident
Jimmy Close said. 'Am I talk-

covers."
Since making the switch
from stamps to match covers
a few years ago, Close has col-
lected thousands of covers,
boxes and tins of matches.
A good selection of match
covers is on display at the
Francis T. Bourne Jacaranda
Public Library from now
through August. Collectors
are known as phillmenists.
"I quit stamps because the
cost was getting absurd," he
said. "I started with Holiday
Inns and Best Westerns."
The list of hotels was like a
stamp catalog, making it easy
for a collector to know if he
had the complete set. When
the hotels switched to a one-
cover fits all concept, Close


switched to collecting match-
book covers from county
seats.
That is a bit more challeng-
ing since a few states don't
actually have county seats.
Louisiana. has its parish sys-
tem, which is similar, and
Connecticut has done away
with that tier of government
although ,it still has some of
the departments. Close still
needs covers from May,
Chippley and Lake Butler
counties in Florida. He has
two albums filled with
Florida-themed covers and
three albums of California
covers.
Striking one's fancy
For his theme-specific col-
lections, size matters. Close
searches for covers of equal
size. Usually measured by the
number of strikes or individ-
ual matches contained within
the covers, the most common
sizes are 20-strike,. followed
by the 30-strike size. In the
library display, he has a tiny
little match box from Japan,
filled with such tiny matches
that one wonders if the match
would stay lit long enough to


light anything at all. The
largest display matches are
those used to light fireplaces.
Nearly always made of wood,
fireplace matches tend to be
about 9 or 10 inches long.
Escalating costs have has-
tened the demise of match-
books as an advertising vehi-
cle more than the anti-smok-
ing campaigns. Close spoke


of two restaurants, which still
give out matchbooks
although they both are
smoke-free places. One
offered match books with the
following inscription.
"Don't smoke. Use these
matches to light the extra
candles on your birthday
cake."
Once made by dozens of


companies, mostly for adver-
tising, matches are now made
by just three companies in
the United States, Diamond,
which only makes boxed
matches; D.D. Bean in New
Hampshire and Atlas match
in Dallas. Universal, which
was the largest manufacturer
Please see MATCH, 4B


Custom-made matchboxes designed as train cars were made as specialty promotional items.
These are highly prized by railroaders as well as collectors of match covers.

SUN PHOTOS BY KIM COOL
Match covers from defunct Venice businesses form a collection


within Close's larger collection,

couldn't pay to take them
away," he said.
Many collectors do remove
the matches out of space con-
.iderations and even to light-
en the books for shipment,
because the postage can add
up when collections are


Matchcover Club are $5 for
the calendar year and
includes the cost of a newslet-
ter for collectors. In August
there will be an annual con-
vention at the Holiday Inn
near Cedar Point in Sandusky,
Ohio.


"People come from all over
the world," Close said.
Collectors bring their extra
covers, which they toss on a
table for anyone who wants
them. Close said he has prob-
ably given away about 30,000
covers that way. It also is why
he rarely has to buy covers,
although he has purchased
some and bid on a few at auc-
tions. In addition to swapping
covers, the collectors com-
pete for trophies in various
categories. And some collec-
tors collect only match safes,
not matches.
The most mundane
designs have proven the most
difficult to collect
When collectors die, they
often leave their collections to
the club, covering many club
expenses, Close said.
The rest of us are "brandy-
snifter collectors," who bring
home souvenirs of places we
have been, but never get
around to doing anything else
with them. Don't throw
them out. Buried deep is such
a place could be one of the
most sought-after covers ever
made, the Lindbergh cover.
Only three are known to exist.
The matchcover display
will remain on view at the
Frances T. Bourne Library,
4143 Woodmere Park Blvd.,
through the end of August.
The library opens daily at 9
a.m., closes at 8 p.m. on
Tuesday and Thursday and at
5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday
and Friday. The library is
closed on Sunday. The
library's main number is (941)
861-1260.

The message is: There isn't one


"Hello, I must be going!"
Yes, ladies and gentleman,
and all the ships at sea, those
were the words of Capt.
Spalding when he returned
from his great expedition in
Africa.
Capt. Spalding (Groucho
Marx, that is, in the move
"Animal Crackers") arrives at
the home of Mrs. Ritten-
house, played by the re-
doubtable (and who would
doubt it) Margaret Dumont,
who made her living looking
fluttered and offended in sev-
eral of the Marx Brother's
films.
Another is "Duck Soup," in
which dear Miss D. plays
some lady who will give lots of


money to save the country of
Freedonia if and only if Rufus
T. Firefly is its president
(played by Groucho, of
course}. This film includes all
four of the Marx Brothers who
appeared in films, and by that
I mean Groucho, Chico,
Harpo and Zeppo, the hand-
some one, who got out of
their films as fast as he could,
and became a producer.
Which reminds me of a
really funny story: We need
volunteers to help with the
weeding (outside, around our
landscaping) here at the
monastery, 2241 Englewood
Road, Englewood, 474-8914.
But where was I? Oh, yes, at
Mrs. Rittenhouse's home (on
Long Island, as is to be
expected) and at grand wel-
come-home party for Capt.
Spalding.
The chorus does a nice job
of singing over and over,
"Hurray for Capt. Spalding,"
so we don't forget his name.
Ah, but the good captain can-
not stay. So he sings:
Hello, I must be going
I'll stay the summer
through
But I'm telling you:
I must be going.
Npw, that little song

reminds me of the points of
this column: There aren't any.
I am sick and tired of peo-
ple wanting the inner mean-
ing of literature. J.R.R. Tolkien
spent his life telling people,
"It's just a story."
But no. People want to find
the inner meaning of the
Micky Rooney and Judy
Garland musicals. True, there
is deep meaning in Russian
novels like "War and Peace,"
which I had to read in college,
and it is quite clear that its
inner meaning is that reading
it is a total waste of time.
True, one shouldn't be too
hard on a novel that ends with
the line, "I will do whatever
my father wants me to do." I
did whatever my Uncle
Seymour wanted me to do
and now I own a 4 foot by 4
foot plot of land, all swamp, in
Arizona. The real problem is it
is vertical.
If there is one thing the
Marx Brothers have taught us
is that life is made to be
laughed through. But, of
course, that is easier when
you have three other brothers
who will go along with you,
even if Zeppo snuck away
dressed as Carmen Miranda.
I'd write more but you see,
I must be going.

Telling tales of ancestors


BY MICKI D'AMICO
STAFF WRITER

When a book is a good
read, it's hard to put down.
When it's a true rendition of
nine generations of women,
told by a local resident; it's a
fantastic read and impossible
to put down.
The book, "Ancestral
Spirits Awaken Me," written
by Violet April (Shaya -
Indian name) Ebersole, is a
story going back to the early
1800s, beginning with her
great- great-great- great
grandmother, Mary, Jane
Boatwright.
"The inspiration to write
Ancestral Spirits Awaken Me'
started with my grandmother,
Violet Perin," said April. "She
would tell me stories of her
ancestors and I was fascinat-
ed. I wanted to know every-
thing. I was always asking
other members of my family,
as well, if they had been told
any stories.
"Once I had several stories,
I had to verify them through
research. It took five years to
gather the documents and
certificates to prove what I
had been told. The first place
I researched was on the
Internet at ancestry.com."
April's mother, Betty, had
also saved pieces of the fami-
ly's history artifacts that
included old railroad hats,
lanterns, articles of clothing
and more.
"Another way I received
the history of the women in
my family was through my
dreams," continued April.
"My great-great-great-great
grandmother Mary Jane
Boatwright was the first to
come to me.
"She lived \with her modmer


and father as part of the
Monacan Indian tribe, which
was part of the Sioux Nation.
Through Mary Jane, I learned
I was related to an old
Powhatan chief, the father of
Pocahantas. Unfortunately,
Mary Jane's 'Earth Walk' was
short from 1810 to 1844."
Most of the visions of her
ancestors came from Mary
Jane Boatwright's daughter,
Mary Ann, who was born in
1838. She only spent a short
time with her mother, as
Mary Jane took her "blue-
spirit walk" in 1844, when
Mary Ann was just 6 years old.
"MaryAnn, who was called
Ann while her mother Mary
Jane was still alive, came to
me with stories of the hard-
ships she endured during her
Earth Walk," added April.
"During my research, many
of the stories were verified
and true.
"I traveled to Virginia,
where I checked census
records, death and birth
records., historical societies
and museums. I checked
libraries and one of the,
libraries gave me certification
to go to the archives of this
huge resource center. This is
where the oldest records of
the United States are kept,
.going back to the Jamestown
era. In fact, the people at the
archives were prepared and
brought out the exact records
I would need to look at. One
book was huge, 3 to four 4
thick. Everything was hand-
written."
While doing her research,
April found the hospital Mary
Ann had to stay at for a num-
ber of years. After an accident
in which Mary Ann was ren-
dered deaf and blind, she
stayed at what was called


Eastern Lunatic Asylum. She
eventually was able to see
again, but her hearing was
very limited. This was a long
and frightening part of Mary
Ann's Earth Walk.
"When the asylum closed,
Mary Ann made a treacher-
ous journey to Cincinnati,
Ohio, to start her life anew. It
was a long trek," said April.
"Mary Ann eventually moth-
ered five children, the oldest
of which was Maggie, who
,gave birth to 19 children.
Mary Ann continues her sto-
ries about Maggie, who also
went through some hard-
ships."
And the stories continue...
April Ebersole is having a
series of book signing in the
area. From 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
July 15, April and her hus-
band, Dick, will be at Borders
Books in Sarasota on U.S. 41.
On July 20, they will be at the
Village On The Isle retirement
center. She .is talking to
Walden Books, as well.
April is also an accom-
plished artist with more than
200 paintings in watercolors,
oils and acrylics. She will have
some of her artwork and her
book at the Englewood Art
Center in October.
Her book can be pur-
chased online at Books-A-
Million.com, Barnes &
Noble.com, Borders.com .or
Amazon.com.
As the women from her
family keep coming to her
and because of responses to
her first book, she is. working
on her second book. It should
be fascinating.

Sheep droppings, or how to stay away from 'sleepy sickness'


DAVE BARRY


This classic Dave Barry column
was originally published June 16,
1996.
Call me paranoid, but my
first reaction, upon learning
about the dead sheep being
found in treetops in New
Zealand, was that something
unusual was going on.
I found out about this
thanks to alert reader Steven
Moe, who sent me an article
from The Press of Christ-
church, concerning "the dis-
covery of several dead sheep
high in the trees of Tunni-
cliffe Forest."
Right away, I said to my-
self, "Hmm."
I base this statement on
the well-known fact that
sheep are not tree-dwelling
animals. Zoologically, sheep
are classified in the same
family as cows: Animals that
Stand Around and Poop.
On very rare occasions, a
single sheep or cow will
climb a tree in an effort to
escape a fierce natural pred-
ator such as a wolf or (around
lunchtime) Luciano Pavarotti.
But the article in the New
Zealand newspaper states


VENUE

mis Elks Lodge, 1021 Discov-
ery Way in Nokomis. Snacks

that "four or five decompos-
ing sheep were high in the
branches." That is too many
sheep to be explained by
natural causes.
Which leads us to the
obvious explanation, namely,
supernatural causes.
I realize that many of you
laugh at stories of the para-
normal. "Ha ha," you say.
But the truth is that the
world is full of strange phe-
nomena that cannot be ex-
plained by the laws of logic
or science. Dennis Rodman
is only one example.
There are many other
documented cases of baffling
supernatural occurrences.
Consider these examples:
Early in the morning of
Oct. 8, 1991, Mrs. Florence
A. Snegg, of Uvula, Mich., was
having an extremely vivid
dream in which her son,
Russell, was involved in a
terrible automobile acci-
dent. Suddenly, she was
awakened by the ringing of
her telephone. On the line
was a Missouri state troop-
er, calling long distance to
remind Mrs. Snegg that she
had never had children.
On the afternoon of
March 13, 1993, Winchester
B. Fleen, of Toad Sphincter,
Ark., was abducted by hos-
tile, large-brained beings
who drilled holes in his
head, probed him with giant
needles, pumped chemicals
into .his body, took samples
of his organs and removed
most of his bodily fluids
before they found out that
he did not have health insur-
ance, at which point they
released him back into the

hospital waiting room.
On the morning of July
3, 1994, 7-year-old Jason
Toastwanker fell off his tricy-
cle, hit his head and was
knocked out. When he re-
gained consciousness, he
spoke to his parents in fluent
German. This did not sur-
prise them, because they
were Germans and this hap-
pened in Germany. What
surprised them was that
before the accident he had
cleaned up his room without
being asked.
Last Feb. 12, Thelma
Crumpet-Scone of New York
City purchased a Whopper
at Burger King. When she
started to eat it, she bit her
own finger, causing a
painful red mark for several
minutes. Incredibly, she
decided that this was totally
her fault, and she did not
sue anybody.
Impossible, you say? Per-
haps so, but all of these in-
cidents, along with hundreds
more that have not occurred
to me yet, have been thor-
oughly documented by the
Institute for Documenting
Things Thoroughly.
The lesson is this: Before
you say something is "impos-
sible," you would be wise to
remember the old saying:
"Truth is stranger than fic-
tion, especially when 'truth'
is being defined by the O.J.
Simpson defense team."
And thus, when you con-
sider the New Zealand tree-
sheep article, the question
you must ask yourself is,
"How can I, keeping an open
mind, best explain what
happened?"

nation. Twenty participants


The answer is, "Read the
rest of the article, you
moron."
It turns out that the sheep
had fallen from a helicopter.
The pilot had been trans-
porting I am not making
up this quote "some ewes
that had died from sleepy
sickness," and the wire that
was holding the sheep under
the helicopter broke.
Incredibly, the pilot had
been warned about this the
night before in a telephone
call from a Missouri state
trooper.
No, I made that last part
up. But the rest of the story
is true, which raises the fol-
lowing alarming questions
for those who live in, or plan
to visit, New Zealand:
Is it a common practice
there to transport deceased
sheep via helicopter?
If one of these sheep
were to land on you, would
you get "sleepy sickness"?
What about Mad Cow
Disease?
For the record, tree sheep
are not the only bizarre phe-
nomenon to occur lately in
New Zealand.
I have here a document,
sent in by alert reader Gretl
Collins, stating that a re-
searcher in New Zealand has
discovered a new, improved
method for growing toma-
toes hydroponically. ("Hydro-
ponically" comes from the
Greek words "hydro," mean-
ing "a," and "ponically,"
meaning "way of growing
tomatoes.")
According to the docu-
ment, the researcher has
found that he gets excellent

results when he grows the
tomatoes in ... brassieres. I
am not making this up.
This leads to still more
questions, including:
Does this give new
meaning to the expression,
"Get a load of those toma-
toes"?
Would it be tasteless to
make a joke here about
growing zucchini in athletic
supporters?
What about Mad To-
mato Disease?
There's probably nothing

to worry about, but until we
get some answers, I think
everybody should panic for
a while and then get some
sleep. I myself am suddenly
feeling very sleepy, so I'm

down and down and...

WELL BEING


Understanding your setpoint; learning to STOP


CAROLINE J1. CEDERQIJIST, MD


The human body is a
wonderful, complicated ma-
chine.
Your disgestive system,
your brain and your fat
stores all work together
through a highly complex
biochemical interaction to
help you maintain a stable
weight. These different parts
of your body communicate
with one another through
various feedback mecha-
nisms in an effort to coordi-
nate the various activities
that maintain your weight
at- a specific level. That level
is known as the setpoint.
Think of your setpoint as
a thermostat. In your home,
you set your thermostat at
the temperature you most
enjoy and expect your heat-
ing or air conditioning sys-
tem to respond to outside
conditions and maintain
your home at that termpera-
ture. By the same token,
your setpoint raises or'lowers
your appetite and metabo-
lism-the rate at which your
bodyburns calories-in re-
sponse to how much you eat.
You may now ask the
obvious question: "If my body
is designed to maintain a
stable weight, then why did I
gain weight and why is it so
darn hard to lose it? ....
Back to our thermostat
analogy. Let's say that the
outside temperature is 85
degrees and you want your
home's cooling system to
maintain an indoor temper-
ature of 72 degrees. No
problem. Your air condition-
er won't have to work too
hard to cool the outside air
by only 13 degrees.
But let's throw in a heat


wave when the outside tem-
perature climbs to a swelter-
ing 110. No matter how hard
your ASC struggles, it won't
be able to maintain that
desired 72 degree tempera-
ture. The gap is just too big.
So what does it do? It main-
tains the lowest temperature
it can-but it will still be high-
er than 72 degrees!
That's what happens with
your setpoint. If, over a long
period of time, you develop
a greater gap between the
calories you eat and those
you use up in exercise, your
body's, weight regulation
system will adjust your set-
point upward. Your body
then settles in to maintain
that higher weight.
That answers the first part
of the question, but what
about why it's so hard to take
the weight back off?
When you start to lose
weight, your body's meta-
bolic alarm goes off. It alerts
your body-which strives for
equilibrium or that stable
status quo-that you are not
eating as much as usual. In
turn, your body demands
more food. It's a survival
mechanism, built in eons
ago, and not easily repro-
grammed.
For years, I have reassured
my patients that dieters
don't fail for lack of will-
power but because of crav-
ings! As long as your set-
point remains evelvated, you
will be assaulted by those
blasted cravings every time
your body senses that you
are not eating enough to
maintain your present
weight.
Those physiological hun-
ger alarms thus make it
extremely hard for over-
weight people to l-ps; weight, .
and even harder 'for tliem'to
keep it off. Your body is fight-
ing to hold on to whatever
excess fat it has become
accustomed to, and it does its
best to replace any weight
you lose.
Last week, I offered a num-
ber of strategies for dealing
with cravings, but here's a lit-
tle framework for bringing
them into play.

People who know the
phrase "lead us not into
temptation" grow up think-
ing of temptation as the first
step down a slippery slope
into some kind of disaster,
and it often is, if you yield
to it.
But you can also think of
temptation as an early warn-
ing system. Sure, there are
times when it just doesn't
bother you to be around a
lovely plate of brownies, or
French fries, or some other
treat that's just not on your
dietary program. But some-
times you are tempted. But
instead of regarding that
craving as the first step
toward actually eating the
off-limits treats, regard it as
the signal to pull in rein-
forcements, just in case,
even before you start to feel
really compelled to go for the
goodies.
If you feel tempted, STOP!
STOP is an acronym for a
four-step process that you
can use to good benefit.
S-Stop! Visualize a stop
sign and hear the word "stop."
Immediately stop whatever it
is you're doing.
T-Take a deep, cleansing
breath. This creates a win-
dow of opportunity during
which you can recognize and
assess the temptation you're
faced with, and take appro-
priate action.
O-Observe your situation,
yourself, and and your op-
tions. Analyze what's going
on. How are you feeling?
What do you want? What do
you need? In your observa-
tion, use the HALT analysis.
Am I Hungry, Angry, Lonely
or Tired? That's because we
often react automatically,
sometimes inappropriately
fTo these stimuli. Of these,
only true hunger is a good
reason to eat. If there's
something else playing into
your temptation, then eating
is not the correct response,
plain and simple.
P-Plan your correct ac-
tion. You've got choices, so
what are they? What's really
important to you? What
actions will help you move


toward what matters, toward
an appropriate response, and
away from the temptation
and reactionary eating.
Go ahead and let yourself
hear whatever voices inside
you are suggesting that you
abandon or sabotage your
healthy intentions, and pause
long enough to acknowledge
and respond to those voices.
A good response might be,
"Thanks for sharing, now
move along."
Then shift the focus away
from food by doing some-
thing else: sit quietly for five
minutes and let your atten-
tion rest on your breathing;
phone a friend; -review a list
of your motivations for get-
ting healthy (you have made
that list by now, haven't
you?) or take a walk.
And encourage yourself
as you would a friend or
loved one. We're often too
willing to let ourselves fail
without offering the support
we would give to even a,
casual pal. Remember that
sometimes, if you're not
hearing what you need to
hear, it might be because
you're not saying it yourself.
The more often you use
the STOP method to manage
cravings, the more easily
and effectively you'll be able
to resist. temptations and
overcome your body's natural
tendency to push you back
to your setpoint.
But the more frequently
you'.do it successfully, the
easier it becomes, just as
with anything else that takes
practice. After a while you
get good at it, and it just
becomes a habit. A good
habit.

If you /
ride a
,bicycle for
exercise, your bike
should fit your body like a glove.
S Begin by positioning the seat
f correctly to protect your knees. At the
bottom of your stroke, your knee should only be
slightly bent. If your knee is bent too much,
your seat is too low and you will stress your
knee. On the other hand, if your knee locks when
it is extended, or if you have to reach for the
pedal, the seat is too high, which can also stress
the knee. The handlebars should be one inch lower
than the top of the seat. Drop handle bars should be
about as wide as your shoulders or slightly
narrower.
Chiropractic is ideally suited to helping you deal
with the many pains and strains that can result from
riding a bicycle, playing sports or pursuing physical
fitness programs. As a patient of
TWIN PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH
CENTER, you will be fully educated as to what is
happening to you and how we can help. We're

function as quickly and effectively as possible
through the use of non-surgical, drug-free
chiropractic care. Please call 412-3800 to schedule
an appointment. We offer massage therapy and
have 4 licensed massage therapists on staff.
P.S. If you suffer from chronic shoulder, arm, or

What can I do in my yard at this time of year to give it |
color and brighten the yard up?
Well now that we have been blessed with rain it is time to update your |
yard. You can tear out the old and replace the old. This would help you
to establish our new plants in the yard. We have a landscaping service ]
to help with this task. There are a lot of neat plants out there that
would brighten up that drab landscape.
Take note as to what your yard looks like at this time. Do you have
yellow patches or dead patches; you might have insects such as
chinch bugs in the yard. Yellow blades of grass could -mean
fungus in the lawn. With all the warm moist nights this could
be problem at any time. If you aren't sure bring in a sample ofWINNER
the grass dirt and all, this will help us to recognize, and solve the
problems. DUKE GARDEN CENTER IS OPEN AND HERE TO
SERVE YOU WITH ALL YOUR PROBLEMS IN YOUR YARD.

Kudos
Congratulations to State
Representative Nancy Detert
of Venice who was recently
honored by the' Mayor of
Sarasota for being "a champi-
on of legislation supporting
the industry of Spring
Training Baseball as a viable
and important factor in the
overall economy of the state.
As the sponsor of the legisla-
tion, Representative Detert
presented the final version of
the legislation which could
provide up to $15 of Sales Tax
Rebate Funds over 30 years to
the City to rebuild the Spring
Training Facilities which
house our Major League
Baseball Tenant, the Cin-
cinnati Reds, and our Minor
League Baseball Tenant, the
Sarasota Reds."
It doesn't need to be as big
and fancy as Brighthouse
Field in Clearwater where the
Phillies play. As long as the hot
dogs are as good as they used
to be at the old Texas Rangers
field in Port Charlotte, and we
can get to the players for auto-
graphs (especially when the
Indians are in town) I will be
happy.
Reunion
The Venice High School
Class of 1981 had its 25th

and want to share some a
photo or two, send them to
Debbie Shulman at dshul-
man@venicegondolier.com.

er class and will be having a
reunion, let us know at least
three weeks in advance so we
can help you get the word out.
Send an e-mail to Shulman at
the above address or to me at
