The unidentified pilot and passenger of a single-engine plane escaped seriousinjury in a crash at Venice Municipal Airport
Saturday afternoon. According to City of Venice Citizen Liaison Officer Pam Johnson, an-Emeraud two-seater experimental plane is
believed to have experienced trouble on-landing; the plane came to rest upside down. Johnson said the occupants of the plane
received minor injuries but were not transported to Venice Regional Medical Center. The Venice Fire Department off-loaded a small
amount of fuel from the plane. No other information was available at press time.


Nolen Plan going on National Register


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER

Members of the Florida
Historical Commission put
Venice in the same category
as Savannah, Ga., and Wash-
ington, D..., Friday by ap-
proving the John Nolen Plan
for the city of Venice for the
National Register.
In 1925 the Brotherhood
ofLocomotive Engineers pur-
chased 50,000 acres south of
Roberts Bay for a retirement
community for retired BLE
workers. The city was laid out
by Nolern, a city planner from
Madison, Wisc.
."This is the first time in
the state of Florida that a city
plan has been nominated


into the National Register,"
stated Dorothy Korwek, di-
rector of Historic Resources
for Venice. "It's a very big
deal, let me tell you, and an
honor for Venice.
"We have been working
on this for the past five
years," she added. "Today's
approval is significant be-
cause it will be submitted as
a formal presentation to the
National Park Service. Fol-.
lowing this presentation, the
John Nolen Plan for the city
of Venice will be accepted
into the National Register."
Korwek said it is very rare
that after the board recom-
mends approval,, national
approval does not follow.
"This is a very special


honor for Venice and a first
for the state of Florida.'," she.
said.:
Very happy
The Florida Historical
Commission exists to review
and vote on proposed nomi-
nations to the National Reg-
ister of Historic Places. In
addition the commission
advises on policy and pre-
servation needs. Members of
this group are considered to
be experts in their respective
fields.
Judith Bense, chairman of
University of West Florida;
AMarion Almy of Archae-
ological Consultant Inc.; and
Carter Quina, an architect
from Pensacola, Fla., made


up Friday's panel.
Dr. Carl Scheiber of
Tallahassee, the state preser-
vation officer, gave an enthu-
siastic review of Venice to the'
panel.


"His responsibility is tou
review nominated sites that
have been proposed to Jhe
National Register," Korwek
said.
Scheiber pointed out the

Members of the Florida Historical Commission reviewed the
Venice Center Mall Friday with regard to putting the historic
building on the National Register of Historic Places.
Lee Ball, treasurer of the mall, was enthusiastic after the same
group approved adding the John Nolen Plan for the city of Venice
to the register.
'This building has many merchants that have been doing
business for over 20 years," she stated. "We have a lot of history
here." .
The building is the former San Marco Hotel. The Kentucky,'
Military Institute purchased it and renovated it for its cadets. The
school closed in the 1970s.


similarities of today Venice
to the original John Nolen
plan.
"The parks, commercial
and industrial areas follow
the original plan more than
people realize." he said.
"Everything from the Venice
Avenue live oaks to the curve
its streets, all follow his origi-
nal plan."
"This is what makes Ven-
ice special," Bense said. "It
\ill be a model for all people
to follow in the future."
Korwek agreed.
"It will encourage future
planners to follow the Nolen
plan, and a new generation
will follow his lead," she said.

STAFF WRITER

When the Venice police
car pulled up beside Rick
Tacy's van and the officer's
window began to roll down,
the city council member
thought, "Oh-oh, what did I
do now?"
When the officer flashed.
a quick smile, Tacy's next
thought was, "Probably just
another complaint or sug-
gestion about something
council needs to address."
That wasn't it, either. The
police officer, who had rec-
ognized Tacy's distinctive
%an, had another message
for him that day: "Thank you
for the, new chief," he said.
"She's great!"
That was the sentiment of
evenrone interxiewd for this
article on new Chief of Police
Julie Williams, who has been
on the job for about three
months.
From the newest to the
most senior police officers,

from secretaries to the deputy
chief, from other department
heads to her bosses at city
hall, the feeling is unanimous.
"She has been a breath of
fresh air to all of us," said
Capt. Dave Dunaway. "There
has been nothing negative at
all with her coming on board,
and she has already started
making changes which ben-
efit the department."
A promise
Not one to waste time,
Williams began immediately
to assess the issues she
needs to address by meet-
ing one-on-one with each of
her employees. She said her
"semi-structured interviews"
are designed to elicit not
only employee complaints,
but also suggestions about
any changes they would like
to see in policies or proce-
dures.
"This is a promise I made
before I was hired," she said,
"and I will continue the
process for as long as it's


needed."
Employees she has met
with have called the inter-
views "cathartic," saying it's


the first time they have been
able to fully express their
job-related frustrations and
disappointments to some-

"I believe the primary
benefit of this process is to
provide an opportunity to

"I've already demonstrated
that I intend to follow up on
every issue they identify."
Changes
When patrol officers raised
questions about operational
rules they felt were unneces-
sarily cumbersome or out-
dated, Williams asked, "Is
there a good reason for this'
rule? If not, it goes away."
True to her word, she has
already made changes in

changes as well.

BYKELEIGH KNABEL
GONDOLIER SUN INTERN

Joyce M. Stewart, 46, of Venice was killed Friday
night attempting to cross U.S. 41 near Alligator
Drive, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report.
Stewart was struck by a 2004 Toyota driven by
Richard J. Hubbard, 28, also ofVenice.
According to the report, the accident occurred at
9:24 p.m. Hubbard was traveling north in the left
lane of U.S. 41 approaching the intersection, with
Alligator Drive and had a green light.
Stewart, who was on the north side of the inter-
section, had a red pedestrian signal but, "for an
unknown reason," walked east directly into the path
of Hubbard's vehicle.
According to eyewitnesses, Stewart had crossed
the southbound lanes and did not stop or look
when beginning to cross the northbound lanes.
The report states Hubbard applied his brakes
and tried to veer to avoid striking Stewart, but the
front passenger side of the Toyota hit her. She was
thrown in to the roadway and was pronounced dead
at the scene. Hubbard was wearing his seat belt and
sustained no injuries.
As to Stewart, the report states the incident was
alcohol related.
No charges are pending.

Saving the Key lime


one tree at a time


On July 1, Gov. Jeb allowed a
number of newlaws to go on the
books.
One of them made Key lime
pie the official state pie. Now
maybe this fruit will get the
help it needs.
See, back in 2005, the state's
failed war on canker wiped out
Florida's Key lime industry. In an
act of optimistic defiance, T.B.
bought and planted a Key lime
tree in his back yard back then.
He has nurtured it since and is
happy to issue this first State of
the Key Lime report.
T.B.'s tiny tree has five
'emerging Key limes!
It's the beginning of a come-
back, Florida. And T.B. is proud
t6 be saving the state pie's key

In'~fiscaJ year.
AI The--action came gs; an

luti'on--e-redaee-the rate by
onlyQ.25 mill. / i
The initial /reduction
would have resulted in a so-,
called aggregate millage of
3.8439 for the' coming year,
compared to 4.0939 for the
current year. Reducing ithe
millage by .40 brought that


amount down to 3.6939.
A mill equals $1 per $1,000
of assessed property value.
This means the owner of a
home assessed at ,$125,000
with a $25,000 homestead
,exemption would pay about
$370 in property taxes with
the new rate.
Homeowners won't neces-
sarily see a lower county tax
bill, however. Higher property
values will more than offset
the lower rates in many cases.
This tax money is used, for
the General Fund, the Trans-
portation Fund, Environmen-
tally Sensitive Land Acquisition
Funds, Debt Service Funds, the
Sarasota County Mosquito
Management Fund and various
countywide districts.


Some help
Tax responsibilities for
property owners don't end
there, of course. .
In addition, they must pay
for schools and other special'
districts. Residents in North ,,
;Port and Venice must pay city
property taxes as well, while
Englewood residents served
by the Englewood Fire
District and the Englewood
Water District will be paying
taxes for thoLse services. .
The 0.25-mill reduction
was originally suggested at
budget workshops held in
June. However, commission-
ers decided Wednesday that a
deeper reduction would help
property owners faced with
increased taxes due to astro-


nomically escalating property
values.
:An even-deeper reduction
of 0.50 mill was considered
also. But upcoming spending
issues such as the sheriff's
request for more jail beds
along with expenses associat-
ed with proposed schedule
extensions for SCAT bus lines
- contributed to bringing the
reduction back to .40.
Tuesday's vote was unani-
mous. Commissioner Shan-
non Staub was absent due to
illness.
Preliminary tax notices are
due to go out in August.

Your bus service just might
be getting better.
Residents who depend on
Sarasota County Area Transit
for bus service will soon see
more drivers. County com-
missioners gave the green
light Tuesday for the hiring of
an additional 20 bus drivers
as part of SCAT's projected
service improvements.
SCAT Senior Planner Sarah
Blanchard was heartened by
the unanimous vote of the
board.
"Last year, we had 98 bus
drivers. This year, we're at 118,
and now we can expand even
more," Blanchard said.
SCAT route enhancements
will begin as soon as July 31,
when two early route expan-
sions go into effect.
Route 17, serving an exten-
sive area on U.S. 41 from the
Venice Train Depot to the
main SCAT transfer station in
Sarasota, will cut the' time
between route pickups, from
60 minutes to 30 minutes.
Route 20, supplying much
needed neighborhood ser-
vice to North Port, will serve
the area between the Riley
Chase Apartments on Toledo
Blade and the North Port
Health Park on U.S. 41.
In October, SCAT's imp-
rovements will reach Eng-
lewood with Route 21 service
in the Olde Englewood Village
section to the Englewood
Community Hospital and the
Englewood Family VMNCA.
Changes to Route 16 will offer
service along State Road 776
in both directions.


Newfuel?
As part of the new services
for Route 24 in South Venice
and Route 25 in Venice
Gardens, buses will extend
onto the island of Venice,
serving a larger area than now
covered by Route 13.
Route 23 will replace the
current Route 15 (Air-
port/Cattlemen) along Swift
Road and the Landings Shop-
ping Center in Sarasota. SCAT
will split Route 15 and extend
the route along University
Parkway, just east of Honore
Avenue, in Sarasota.
SCAT will schedule public
meetings this summer on
proposed routing. Options for
extended hours and Sunday
service are also in the offing.
During the approval pro-
cess, Commission Chairman
David Mills asked SCAT
General Manager, Anthony
Beckford if he had heard
about the emergence of a new
type of cost-efficient, bio-
diesel fuel.
'A lot of people are using it,
like school buses," Beckford
said. "But when they do,
they're signing waivers saying
they'll take responsibility for
anything that goes wrong
with the engine. We can't do
that. Currently, all manufac-
turers of transit buses are say-
ing they will not honor the
warranties of buses using the
fuel."
As the fuel becomes more
widely used and proves
dependable, Beckford said,
SCAT would consider its use.

Consultants studying city employee pay


Workers might see some favorable changes, but
have been promised there will be no salary cuts


or layoffs

BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFF WRITER

Ever since Marty Black
became city manager more
than two years ago, he has
wanted to update the Venice's
classification and compensa-
tion structure.
"The last time the city had
done a comprehensive pay
study including all positions
was in 1990," he said. "The
community and the area,
economy have changed con-
siderably since then, so it is
definitely time to look again
at our comparable labor mar-
ket and see where we stand in
terms of competing for and
retaining qualified people."
So the city hired Evergreen
Solutions LLC, which special-
izes in human resource
analysis and problem-solving
projects for both public and
private clients throughout the
United States.
It held a series of meetings
this week in which employees
were given a general orienta-
tion and an opportunity to
ask questions about the
study.
First step
Amy Campbell, Ever-
green's project manager for
the study, and project analyst
Brian Wolfe conducted the
meetings, which were des-
igned to explain how the
study will be done and how it
will-andwill not be used.
Campbell said the goal of
the study is to recommend a
classification/compensation
system that is equitable, both
internally and externally.
By completing a specially
'designed Job Assessment
Tool form, each employee will
provide a "snapshot" analysis
of every element involved in
his or her job.
'An accurate and up-to-
date assessment of each job is
the key to making this
process meaningful and eff-
ective," Campbell explained.
"Unfortunately, job descrip-
tions are not always real
reflections of what an em-
ployee actually does. Through
the JAT, each employee can
explain in detail their essen-
tial job functions, working
conditions, required skills
and responsibilities, and also
comment on what levels of
education, experience, certi-
fication/licensing, etc. should
be required for that job."
Supervisory review
Next, supervisors will
review the input from their
employees, who were assured
no one would be able to edit
the forms, only to indicate
whether they agree, or dis-
agree with the employees'
assessments, and then enter
their own comments.
"Very often a supervisor will
be able to point out things the
employee has inadvertently
omitted," Campbell said. "On
the other hand, if an employee
has incorrectly embellished his
or her duties or functions in the
department, we need to know
that too.
"The forms and follow-up
process are designed to be as
objective as possible," Wolfe
said, "and if there is some-
thing subjective expressed by
either a supervisor or an
employee, that is usually easy
to detect and deal with."
Campbell also wanted
employees to know the ways
they would not be affected by
participating in the survey.
"This is not a performance
assessment," she said. "Your
filling out these forms will in
no way be used to determine
how well you are doing your
job. It will not be used to
determine or adjust staff size
in any operation. And it will
not be used to reduce any
individual employee's salary."
Analyze this
After the forms are com-
pleted, the real work begins.


"The information provid-
ed on the JAT forms must be
analyzed and compared
throughout the city's various
operations in order to deter-
mine what changes might be
needed in the way positions
within the system are classi-
fied and related," Campbell
said. "Jobs with similar duties,
skills and responsibilities
should be grouped together
and paid comparably."
The next phase of the
study will be a survey of orga-
nizations comparable to
Venice' to determine what
changes might be needed to
make the city competitive in
the job market.
"Although most of the
agencies surveyed will be
public employers in south-
west Florida ... ," Campbell
stated, "Venice may be com-
peting over a larger area for
such positions as police offi-
cer, firefighter, building

Survey says?
At that point Evergreen will
have all the information it


mat by the employers in-
volved," Campbell said. '"As a
result, there is usually some
adjustment to implement
changes in pay grades to the
market levels."
"Of course, if a union con-
tract is involved for particular
positions," she added, "there

School wellness policy puts




longtime practices into writing


BY RACHEL BROWN HACKNEY
PELICAN.PRESS

When the members of the
Sarasota County School
Board recently approved a
-new .district wellness pro-
gram, i they, essentially were
;seeing that nutrition prac-
tices in place for some time
had been put down in writ-
ing, Beverly Girard, the dis-
trict's director of food and
nutrition services, told the
Pelican Press.
However, regardless of the
recognition that has been
awarded the district's innova-
tive practices, board Chair-
woman Carol Todd does not
want to see the nutrition pro-
gram rest on its laurels.
"Wem would likd to see
Sarasoa continue, to be
$hdad f the curve," TIdd said
,n a, telephone inuerxietw.
SThe, new wellUness policy
was' appro%"ed in accord with
th. 2004 Child Nutrition
Reauthorization Act. That
federal law required all school
districts participating in the
National School Lunch
Program to have an approved
board policy in place by June
30.
Locally,, a committee of
dietitians, nurses, physical
activity experts, principals,
teachers, students and com-
munity members worked on
the policy.
Girard spoke to the board
during its May 2 meeting,
when the board voted to
advertise the policy as
required before putting it into
effect.
"Sarasota has been a


leader in trying to address the
issue of increasing fruits and
vegetables" in children's diets,
she said, adding, "We were
absolutely on the cutting
edge when the reports came
our" regarding concerns
about children not eating.
well. .
National studies have
noted rising obesity rates and
increases in the incidence of
Type 2 diabetes
among children. ..
Further, I
Girard noted that ,..
no fried foods are
served to Sara-
sota County stu- :. '
dents, .,
Girard, who Todd
has been in her
post 15 years, said in a tele-
phone interview that the new
policy contains "ideas and
concepts that we have been
embracing for some time."
When she became nutri-
tion director, she said, she
oversaw immediate changes
in regard to her department's
serving more healthliful meals.
Ten years ago, she said, that
effort intensified.
Girard and her staff have
been recognized at the state,
regional and national levels
for their dedication to their
work.
"You name it, we've won
it," she said.
Most recently, she received
a Silver Plate Award from the
International Foodservice
Manufacturers Association.
The IFMA's Web site says it is
"a leading trade association
comprising more than 500 of
the world's most prestigious


food, equipment and supply
manufacturers in the $483
billion foodservice industry
... ." Girard was honored in
the elementary and sec-
ondary schools division dur-
ing a program in May in
Chicago.
IF K MA's Web site said of the
Sarasota district's food service
department, "It has become
one of the most highly regard-
ed school nutrition programs
in the nation," with 400
employees serving more than
6.3 million meals annually.
Girard told the Pelican she
really could not think of any
nutritional, element the new
policy contained that had not
been in practice already in
the district.
Among the goals outlined
in the policy are an emphasis
on low-fat and fat-free milk;
reduced-fat dairy products; a
variety of fruits and vegeta-
bles and whole grain prod-
ucts in menu development;
the limiting of content and
portion size of foods and bev-
erages that are sold individu-
ally and in vending machines
in the schools; and the provi-
sion of nutrition education to
students "through a planned,'
sequential curriculum and a
variety, of classroom and
lunchroom activities."
The policy adds, "Nutrition
education will also be provid-
ed to families through menus,
newsletters, the Food and
Nutrition Services Web site,
parent meetings and other
wellness activities."
Putting everything in writ-
ing, Girard said, is "proof that
we have been working toward


these nutrition goals for
years. ... We really love what
we do, and we really take the
responsibility very seriously."
Todd emphasized the
importance of the teaching
aspect of the policy, noting
the district has several nutri-
tion educators who work with
the students in the classroom.
Along with the nutrition
component, the new policy
addresses physical activity
goals. Among other points, it
says the district will provide "a
physical education program
that includes, the develop-
ment of positive attitudes
toward wellness and physical
activity, safety. guidelines,
responsible behavior in phys-
ical activity settings, appreci-
ation for a variety of physical
activities, and an understand-
ing of the relationship
between physical activity and
wellness."
Further, it says the district
will "provide opportunities
for physical activity before,
during and after the school
day in addition to scheduled
physical education and other
subject area classes"; it will
"encourage and assist stu-
dents and staff in establishing
personal fitness goals"; it will
"encourage parents to pro-
mote physical activity and to
participate in physical activi-
ties with their children"; and
it will "avoid the use or elimi-
nation of physical activity as
punishment."
Todd was pleased with the
parts of the policy affecting
staff as well as students.
"I think it's setting a high
standard," she said.


Osprey waterfront plan

finally taking shape


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Revitalization of Osprey's
waterfront, stalled for 16
months because no one
seems able to come up with a
community plan, could final-
ly be within reach for the for-
mer fishing village.
Sarasota county planners
were authorized to hire a
facilitator and schedule a
neighborhood workshop in
September, according to
Laurie Semenec, a planner. It
will involve property owners
in the 14-acre tract designat-
ed for revitalization, area resi-
dents and members of the
Osprey Revitalization Com-
mittee.
Revitalization of the water-
front, a part of the original
Osprey Revitalization Plan,
was set for the 14-acre tract
west of U.S. 41 from the
Hidden Bay condominium
community north to Osprey
Village. It was hoped from the
start that all of it could .be
developed by a single entity.
But in January 2005, a pro-
posal to develop 5.5 acres
between Bay Street and
Bayview Avenue to the south
and from the highway west to
the waterfront was intro-
duced to the committee. It
called for a mixed-use devel-
opment to include 55 two-
story condominiums over
parking built from the waters'
edge toward the center of the
property.
In addition, 11 retail units
of about 1,500 square feet
each would be built on U.S.
41. Apartments would be
added on their second floors.
A preliminary site plan
shown at a subsequent com-
mittee meeting prompted
concern among- residents,


who feared that the proposal
would block access to the
Spanish Point Marina Grille, a
locally popular waterfront
restaurant, and reduce park-
ing for its patrons.
The restaurant can be
reached by land only on
Bayview Avenue, which is
within the 5.5 acres. The road,
in declining condition, is bor-
dered by an aging apartment
house, older single-family
homes and duplexes and a
rowing club.
One of the few remaining
waterfront restaurants in the
area, the Marina Grille is
owned by the developer.
The committee, with the
' assistance of county special-
ists, has spent much of the 16
months reviewing state and
county requirements for
development. These include
building density and height
limits, public access to the
waterfront, coastal zone
issues for buildings, afford-
able housing opportunities
and architectural design.
Amendment of the county
comprehensive plan would
be required if hotels, restau-
rants, office buildings and
other commercial properties
are to be considered for a revi-
talized' waterfront, according
to county planners.
The lengthy deliberations of
the committee appear to have
exhausted the patience of the
developer, Dr. Anil Patel.
He has decided to submit a
petition to rezone. His, plan
would increase density to
permit two to nine units per
acre, using the county's exist-
ing land use designation. A
development concept plan is
evolving, according to Brian
Lichterman of Vision Plan-
ning & Design LLC, advisors
to Patel.

A couple of weeks ago I

STAFF REPORT .

Concerns over public
safe-ty and the condition of
eight railroad trestles along
the county-owned rails-to-
trails corridor have prqmpt-
ed the county to begin
installing 8-foot-high, chain-
link fences barring access to
the trestles.
The work is being done by
Arrow Fence of Bradenton
and is expected to be com-
pleted by July 21, weather
permitting.
The crews will install "U"-
shaped, commercial-grade,
chain-link fences that are
bolted to each of the deter-


iorating trestles, which have
been deemed unsafe for
crossing.
Although barricades and
warning signs have been in
place at all of the trestles,
Public Works officials said it
is apparent that some peo-,
ple are circumventing the
barricades and still crossing
the trestles. The new fencing
is designed to prevent access
to the trestles.
New bilingual (English
and Spanish) warning signs
that say "DANGER DO
NOT CROSS" also will be
placed at each end of the
trestles.
The former CSX railroad


trestles are scheduled to be
removed, repaired or replaced
as part of the county's plan to
establish a recreational trail
along the 12.4-mile former
CSX railroad corridor.
Purchased for $11.75 mil-
lion in December 2004, the
railroad corridor stretches
from about a mile south of
State Road 72 (Clark Road) by
Sawyer Loop Road to the
southern terminus near Cen-
ter Road in Venice.
Other than the railroad
trestles, most of the tracks
along the 100-foot-wide corri-
dor connecting Sarasota to
Venice have been removed.
A hard-packed, shell surface


layer that is suitable for
walking or running has been
placed on a 12-foot-wide
section of the corridor that
runs through Oscar Scherer
State Park.
The state park is one of
six trailheads planned for the
permanent asphalt trail that
will be built under the second
phase of the project beginning
later this year. The perman-
ent trail is expected to be
completed in early 2008.

the rails-to-trails project,

Call Center at 861-5000.

County OK's Verizon cable service

"Can you hear me now?"
That was the question to
which Verizon got a resound-

Commissioners unani-

OUR VIEW


Will water always be a


t AT ater, water everywhere but not a
VV drop to drink" an old saying
that no one in Southwest Florida
would ever want to see come true.
And through the hard work of the
Southwest Florida Water Management
District, "not a drop to drink" will not
become a reality. It simply can't.
Yet with a projected 2025 population of
5.8 million people in Swiftmud's district,
the work of providing for present and fu-
ture water supply needs becomes even
more important and challenging.
We commend Swiftmud for the work it
has done during the past 30 years and its
future initiatives to ensure an adequate
supply of water for the district.
But its job is never easy and' won't get


any easier as thousands of new residents
move within Swiftmud's boundaries over
the next 20 years.
Supplying water for the district is ac-
complished through continuous long-range
planning. Swiftmud's Web site, www.water-
matters.org, details the strategies the dis-
trict is working on.
The planning includes the current up-
dating of the 2001 Regional Water Supply
Plan, which is scheduled to be released this
month. The RWSP focuses on a 10-county
area.
According to Swiftmud, new sources of
water will include surface water, reclaimed
water, desalination and conservation.
We'd like to see a concerted effort by all
of us to do the one thing we have in our


control to do conserve water.
Most watering restrictions put in place
allow for lawns to be watered twice a week,
but with some recent rain and lots more
coming' over the summer, do we really
need to water twice a week? Could we
cut back to once a week and still be the
proud owners of a beautiful, lush, green
lawn?
We are allowed to hand-water plants
and shrubs and it's recommended that we
use a hose with a nozzle on the end so
water can be better controlled. It sounds
like a small detail but multiplied by thou-
sands of us it adds up.
Of course, we all like our set of "wheels"
to look good as we cruise the highway;,
but is it possible we don't really need to

wash our cars as much as we do?' "
OK .now we'have struck'a nerve.
"Don't mess with my .car washing," some"
may say. We are only encouraging you to
think about it.
We also want you to think about some-
thing else Florida running out of water.
Will that ever happen? It's safe to say "no"
sifice we are practically surrounded by
water. But nothing can be taken for
granted. That's why the work of Swiftmud
and other area water districts and water
authorities in Florida is so important.
At least each of us can make an effort to-,
conserve. That's an area we can control,
and by conserving we will be helping
ensure that there ,will. be "water, water

BOB VEDDER



The Sarasota County
School District has been one
of the fortunate ones to
receive extra funding from
voters.
In 2002 they voted for an
additional 1-mill in property
tax, estimated to bring in $25
million a year for four years,
or S100 million. Instead the
county got $140 million be-
cause of rapidly rising prop-
erty values.
One of the dilemmas the
district found itself in was it
had too much money and
had to spend it. Its rules and
state law dictated its could
only put so much in reserve.
(Both of those need chang-
ing.) We saved money, but not
as much as we should have.
Since we had to spend it,
the district ramped up in
instructional and support
services many of those in
desperate need, others more
of a luxury. Much of the
money went to trying to ele-
vate the skills of the students
- in summer school, alterna-
tive schools, tutoring, extra
instruction and much more.
Much went to teacher
aides and reading coaches in
elementary and middle
schools. One needed com-
ponent was guidance, where
the ratio had grown in some
cases to one guidance coun-
selor per 700 students, the
worst in the state. The district
also added custodians, tech-
nical support in big schools,
and even people to teach the
teachers. There were statisti-
cians in some cases.
In all, the schools in those
four years probably added
900 positions. Many were
needed due to the class-size
amendment, some due to
growth, some to catch up
and some, to spend the
money we got, that maybe
weren't necessary but nice.
If each of those positions
represented $40,000 a year
including benefits, that
meant an additional $36 mil-
lion a year, certainly a good
chunk of the referendum.
Of course, the state was
giving us some of that mon-
ey. That, however, does not
touch the increases in staff
pay. There was the immed-


iate catch-up to pay some
increases that hadn't been
paid. With one half hour more
a day, there has been another
$8 million a year committed,
and performance-based, pay
that Dr. Norris will institute
will account for another $20
million a year by the last year
it is instituted.
The school system pro-
mised the citizens it would
spend the money on teach-
ers,andsaaries, ,aaldto hbrin,
o.0 Wiprogramisand ir has
done that. Unfortunately,
what it didn't do was put a
cap on how much it could
spend you know, the
unlimited credit card sort of
thing.
The somewhat baffling
thing was last year the district
planned for 1,600 new stu-
dents, which the state fund-
ed. The district hired the
Additional teachers it needed.
The estimate should have
raised some eyebrows be-
cause there was no history
that showed there would be
that many new students,
although there had been a-
couple of recent increases.
The number has been
around 900 a year, although
there was a spike to 1,200 the
year before, and I guess the
district assumed with the real
estate boom 1,600 was pos-
sible and didn't want to get
caught shorthanded.
Unfortunately, the boom
was over by last fall and by
the end of the first two weeks
of school when a 10-day
count is required, the num-
bers were drastically below
estimates more than 1,000
below.
By October the numbers
were actually going down.
The district did not act, how-
ever. I assume it did not want
Sto upset the outcome of the
referendum to extend the
1-mill tax.
The failure of the board
and the administration to act
aggressively in the fall is the
reason we are cutting staff
now even though promises
were made that no one
would lose their job. (The
aides were the most expend-
able, although any teacher
will tell you how valuable an
aide is.)
The district went ahead
with voluntarily giving a 7-
percent raise to teachers in
January it did not have the
money to pay. That was just
bad judgement. No one on
the board questioned it.
What has happened now
is teachers and others have
been surplussed, moving to
other schools sometimes

LETTERS FROM OURhelmets


Driver education better than helmets


Editor:
It's easy to pass judgment and make comments regard-
ing helmet laws from your armchair. But is the writer of.'
"When will the helmets come back?, actually on the road
and experiencing what it's like on a motorcycle?
I do ride a motorcycle. And though I choose to wear a
helmet, I don't believe that the government needs to make
more legislation on how I ride.
Helmets protect your skull, but they also limit your range
of vision, muffle sounds and add weight resistance. For me,
a helmet is the right choice, but others feel safer with more
access to the sights and sounds around them.
Recently, the number of motorcyclists has increased
exponentially. More riders, more accidents.
Also consider the enormous influx of new residents and
visitors. How much traffic have we added to our roadways?
Most accident reports state that a four-wheeled vehicle
failed to stop at a signal or made. an illegal turn into the
motorcyclist's path.
Before new laws are created for motorcyclists, let's edu-
cate all drivers. Increase awareness about the growing
number of motorcyclists on the road and teach drivers to
look when they change lanes. Increase fines and severity of
punishment to those who run red lights or make improper
turns into the path of motorcyclists.
Currently, you can kill a motorcyclist and get off with a
"violation of right of way" citation, which costs $118.50 ina
Sarasota County.

Editor:
I knew Ken Lay. Not well,
but casually, over many
years. I knew him, and I
eventually owed him a couple
of debts of gratitude that I
never thanked him for.
In the 1980s he saved my
job. As a trade association,.
executive I had recommend-
ed support for imposition of
a "carbon tax" as a means of
addressing the issue of cli-
mate change, an unpopular
proposal among many in the
natural gas industry at that
time. A personally threaten-
ing backlash among industry
executives was'growing until
Lay said simply, "But Nelson
is right."
I really don't know what
went wrong at Enron. I do
know that our country, as
well as Enron, turned a lot
of policy-making over to the-
oretical economists in the
1980s and 1990s. We placed
unprecedented mystical faith


in the invisible hand of the
unregulated marketplace to
bring the best possible
results. I have a feeling that

Good tlthings. I was just driving around Venice and have
three observations. First of all, the, middle bridge looks so
much better now that it's getting painting. Thank you to
whoever that was who managed to pull that one off. Also,
thanks to' MainStreet for that children's fountain. Every time
I drive by the kids are having a ball. It's really fun to watch. It
was a great thing. I know it took a long time, and I appreciate
all the effort that went into it. My third comment is about
the hospital. The new remodeling job really looks nice, but
I'm wondering how that one slipped by the ARB because it
certainly doesn't look anything like Northern Italian.

Bitten. Yesterday my dau-
ghter-in-law took our niece,
who resides in Punta Gorda
along with her four young chil-


dren, for their first visit to
Venice, which we wanted to
proudly show off to her. We
had planned a picnic lunch
and some playtime at the chil-
dren's playground alongside
the shuffleboard courts and
then a visit to the town's new
attraction, the children's sprin-
kler fountain. We instead met
up with a swarm of fire ants
that, when we unknowingly
sat down to eat at the table and
benches, proceeded to let us
know that theywere there first.
We could not find a spot that
was not overrun by the un-
friendly ants. So we sprinted
the one block over to the
sprinkler fountain to wash off
the critters and then ate in the
car. Needless to say, the chil-
dren were disappointed, but
the sprinkler made up for the
aborted picnic lunch. I realize
our snowbirds have all gone
up North now and mainte-
nance of the park area may

have been cut back, but they

as part of the upkeep of the
playground and picnic area.
The shuffleboard, tennis and
handball courts are all very
beautifully maintained. If we
wish to attract and keep young,
families in Venice, then we
should bring the picnic and
playground area up to the
same standards. The children's
sprinkler fountain is delightful.
Now we should do something
about the playground.
Butts out. I would definite-
ly hope that everyone who is
in the least considerate of
our beaches keep the ciga-

Just to dig into the sand is
awful. I think whoever
smokes should be a little
more responsible and smoke
where there are no people
and no beaches and no water.
Flush. Example 948 to
show why growth doesn't
pay in the city of North Port:
To provide water for growth,
residents with high-flow toi-
lets will be given an incen-
tive of $100 to replace them
with low-flush toilets. Of
course, the $100 incentive is
coming from taxes paid by
the current residents. Also,
the city, supposedly broke,
will pay for inspectors to
make at least two visits to
each home. Probable total
cost for toilet installed, $300.
Assuming each new toilet
installed saves 500 gallons of
water a month and 250 flush-
es; a minimum of eight low-
flush toilets must be installed
to save enough water to meet
the needs of each new home
built that's $2,400 that
should be paid by the new
homeowners.

1.25% Mortgage Good or Bad?
Right or Wrong For You?


For the absolute smallest monthly payment possible, we have the mortgage
program for you. A 30 or 40 year mortgage with low payments lasting from 3 to 10
years. The lowest'rate is 1.25% and the best part is you pay no-closing costs. With
a payment starting at only $277.00 per $100,000 you borrow, you can see how you
could save big dollars by paying off credit cards and bills, including lines of credit
with skyrocketing interest. Your payments are low and will not make any unexpected
increases. This program is about low payments and low payments only.

SO WHAT'S THE CATCH?
Because your payment is so low, you are only paying about 1/2 of your
monthly interest. The half you don't pay is added back to your balance. You get 3 to
10o'yeas to use your own unpaid interest to increase your cash flow with a super low
payment and'gain huge monthly savings. The amount added to your balance is just
your unpaid interest.. Yes, your balance increases. But if you have a home with a lot
of equity or one that will continue to appreciate, the balance increase has very little
impact. Here in Florida, we enjoyed a tremendous gift of increasing home values.
We have been left with a windfall of equity. Your future new equity or your past
windfall will easily cover the small increase in your balance. Your principal will only
increase 3% to 4% per year. Your home's value can increase 10% or more per year.
As a safety feature, your balance increase is capped at 15%. In real dollars a
$300,000 loan can only increase $45,000. When you refinance or sell, the unpaid
interest that rolled into your balance is paid off by part of your equity. You never
actually pay the unpaid interest out of your pocket.
30 year mortgages are deceiving. You make payment after payment and your
balance barely drops. It's almost all interest and hardly any principal. When is the
last time you paid off a mortgage by paying all the payments? With a 30 year
mortgage your balance drops very little and with our plan your balance does not
drop. So the amount of equity you build either way is almost the same. But with our
new program the payment is about 75% less than a 30 year payment. You don't
need to pay principal, save your money. Your home's value will grow on its own.
To simplify our process, there is no income verification; you simply state your
income. Finally, there are NO CLOSING COSTS charged to you, GUARANTEED.

the common ones is to put
teachers into Exceptional
Student Education with no
training in that area. This
practice should be done
away with.

ting a lot more money than
before, and. I hope that we
are more prudent spending
it while still trying to imple-
ment some great programs
Dr. Gary Norris has outlined.

It seems that the county
has run out of money. It
painted the Venice Avenue
bridge inside and out until it
got to the eastern end of the
inside of the bridge.
I suggest a service club
buy the 5 gallons needed
and have Jim Ley do one
side and Marty Black do the
other in a show of working
together. Or, maybe the one
who finishes first gets Cas-
persen Beach.
Another thing we did with
the grandkids when theywere
here was take them to the
"secret" park. Yep, there is a
park I did not know existed.
There is a small kids play
area in front of the new
VABI/Venetian Waterway
Park headquarters at what
used to be the chamber of
commerce building next to
the north bridge. The inter-


testing thing is that while
there is some parking, next to
it is in a tow-away zone for
the adjacent building. The
parking is not far away
though, next to the old ABC
building.
The park isn't big but at
least it's one more to take
kids to. I assume if you go on
the weekend people won't
mind you using the tow-
away parking area.
See the new headquarters
during the week; it has been
done very nicely. Not much
goes on there now, but it will
become the trailhead for the
park. There are some interest-
ing aerial photos of the park
areas, even the Rails to Trail
route to Sarasota.
They plan on putting a
fountain or bench in front of
the building to look on the
intracoastal, and maybe an
observation deck down by
the water.
You should notice further
changes in your comics today.
We have increased the num-

types of advertising. We have
plans to enhance this even

Tough loss denies Nats a trip to States

BYCLAUDE LEWIS I t i t [Ei llE,.
SPORTS EDITOR . .. .. -.;.- . n- -: ., .-:. ,


Who says you can't go
home?
Andy Rose didn't say it.
Rose, a 1996 Venice High
graduate, will leave his club
and college coaching posi-
tions in Illinois to become the
new head swimming coach
at 1 Indian Ave.
The swim position became
vacant
a c when
Danielle
Tanaka left
the posi-
tion after
one year at
the helnm.
Tanaka, a
former VHS
pool stand-
out, left Andy Rose
because of
family commitments. Assist-
ant coach Deborah Tweedie
also left, relocating to Mel-
bourne.
Rose didn't swim at VHS.
"I had to work," he said. "I
had ajob at PGT."
Rose was a county life-
guard. He attended North
Central College in Naperville,
Ill. He later became an assis-
tant swimming coach there.
Rose also coached the touted
B.R. Ryall YMCA program in
Illinois.
Rose heard about the VHS
opening through friends at
the Sarasota YMCA Sharks.
Rose said he will also be
coaching the Sharks satellite
team at the Venice YMCA,
"I'm looking forward to
coming homQ, ,Iose ai.
SPrior to Tahaka, theVenice
High swim teams had a num-
ber of successful seasons
under the likable Sharon
Brownfield.


B team ends up

1-2 in tourney
The Venice Indian "B"
team sponsored by No-Vel
Post 159 finished with a
record of 1-2 in the area tour-
nament played during the
week at Venice High.
Venice opened Wednesday
with an 11-0 loss to Palm
Harbor. Kyle Collison got the
lone Venice hit.
Venice rebounded with a
10-8 victory over Lake Placid.
Joey Iorio and Jake Bran-
denberger pitched. Tommy
Haskett had three hits. Ryan
Krauss and Sal Licata also
swung heavy aluminum.
Venice played St. Peters-
burg tough on Friday but the
locals fell 7-4. St. Pete scored
four runs in the sixth inning
to pull it out. Brent Krauss
,pitched well. Iorio played a
great brand of shortstop.
Licata and Derek Rose were
the top swingers.

Vikings 'Meet & Greet'
Day on July 23
The Venice Vikings youth
football organization will
hold a "Meet and Greet"
from 1-3 p.m. on Sunday, July

They say that walks and
errors will kill you.
The Venice National 9-10-
year-old All Stars are living
proof.
Two shaky innings meant
the difference between
preparing for the State
Tournament and preparing
for the post-season party for
Terry Tritschler's bunch.
North Naples rallied for a
4-3 victory over Venice
National Saturday morning.
Later on in the afternoon,
North Naples scored a 9-6
decision over North Fort
Myers National to capture the
Section 6 Little League cham-
pionship.
North Naples earned a trip
to the State Tournament,
which begins Friday in
Kissimmee.
There were four teams in
Section 6, which was played
Friday and Saturday at Chuck
Reiter. North Naples finished
3-0. Venice National was sec-
ond at 2-1. North Fort Myers
was third at 1-2. Manatee
Central was fourth at 0-3.
Venice bombed North Fort
Myers on Friday night, 13-2,
and smacked Manatee 8-1 on
Saturday afternoon.
The pivotal game was
Venice vs. North Naples
Saturday morning.
Venice had a seemingly
safe 3-0 lead heading into the
bottom of the fifth inning. Big
Nick Longhi, who had one
heckuva postseason, had
given the locals the pad with a
three-run homer in the third
inning.,-He also was a factor
on the mound, shutting out
North Naples for four innings.
But suddenly without
warning, things came un-
glued. A walk, a hit and an
error loaded the bases. Then
Longhi uncharacteristically
walked in two runs. He got
the final out of the inning, but
North Naples had crept to
within 3-2.
It wasn't pretty, but still,
Venice needed just three outs
to claim victory.
Manager Terry Tritschler
sent Brett Smith to the hill to
pitch the sixth 'inning.

Juniors unbeaten in pool play


STAFF REPORT

The Venice Little League
Junior All-Stars finished a per-
fect 3-0 in pool play in the
District 16 Tournament to
qualify for the finals.
Venice won its pool opener
over Sarasota on Friday, July
7, and then saw Monday's
game against Englewood halt-
ed by rain in the third inning.
Because of continuing bad
weather, it would be four
more days before Venice
could play again. With
Wellfield fields still muddy,
Saturday's action was moved
to the Englewood Sports
Complex.
The game against
Englewood was picked up in
the bottom of the third
inning. The score was tied at
2-2, no outs and aVenice run-
ner on second base.
Venice quickly took advan-
tage, scoring four times in the
third inning for a 6-2 edge
that held up the rest of the
way. Brent Krauss and Andy
Speth had RBI singles in the
fateful frame. Pitcher Jake
Brandenberger was outstand-
ing. He fired a complete game
four-hitter, striking out a
whopping 12.
Jorge Guelmes pitched for
Englewood, going the dis-
tance.
Venice then went out to a
hot field and defeated North
Port, 4-2.

Federal laws won't protect manateesadvocates say


NAPLES DAILY NEWS

Existing federal laws to
safeguard manatees won't
provide adequate protection
for the species now, that
Florida is downlisting the
mammal from endangered to
threatened, environmental-
ists contend.
Federal officials say the
U.;S. Marine Mammal
Protection Act and the
Endangered Species Act are
in effect and will remain the
same despite the state's
change in listing.
"There will be no change
in! federal protection at all,"
said Dave Hankla, field super-
visor for the U.S. Fish andc
Wildlife Service's Jacksonville
office.
State and local advocates
of the manatee say those fed-
eral laws have been of little-
help to the manatee in the
past.
"The federal laws are only
as good as the enforcement,"
said Andrew McElwaine,
executive director of The
Conservancy of Southwest
Florida.
Because of lack of staffing,
funding or political will, the
enforcement has been weak,
he contends.
"It's financial as well as the
will of upper management to'
stand by the .laws on the
books," he said.
That is why a coalition of
environmental groups sued
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service and the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers in 2000,
said Pat Rose, government
relations director of the Save
the Manatee Club of
Maitland in Central Florida.
The federal government
wasn't enforcing the manatee
protection laws, Rose said.
Rose testified before the
Florida Fish and Wildlife.
Conservation Commission in
West Palm Beach, before the
governor-appointed, board
voted uwanhimwo~t, down--
list the manatee to threat-
ened.
In Florida, imperiled
species are classified into
three categories: endangered,
threatened, and species of
special concern. To be endan-
gered is to be at the highest
risk of extinction.
Florida law calls for endan-
gered and threatened species
to have management plans
that dictate the rules of
human behavior in the crea-


tures' habitat. The rules are
intended to be more severe
for the highest level of threat,
endangered animals, than for
the lowest level, the species of
special concern.
But specific rules are set up


to see how it plays out," said
Hankla, who also attended
the meeting when the mana-
tee was downlisted. "I believe
the state will write a very
strong management plan.
The commission seemed to


sis that the manatee did not
fit in the endangered species
category," he said.
The beloved manatee is

Rose agrees the manatees t
have made some recovery in l
recent years, but the forces f
against the lumbering ani-
mals' survival are mounting.
He pleaded with Fish and
Wildlife commissioners not
to downlist the manatee, say-
ing it will send the wrong
message to the Legislature
and public that the manatee
no longer needs protection.
Rose maintains the real
reason for the downlisting
has more to do with the polit-
ical forces for development
and marine and fishing
industry interests than a
reduction in the perils faced
by the manatee.
"The home builders, the
marine industry, dock build-
ers and pretty wealthy fisher-
men all got united," he said.
Rose has fostered some
uniting of his own on behalf
of the manatees. In 2000, his
organization and 18 other
environmental groups were
the ones that filed suit against
a federal agency for failure to
follow the Endangered Spe-
cies Act and Marine Mammal
Protection Act.
Both acts require permits
before activities can occur in
the animals' habitat as well as
management plans that
address ways to prevent loss
of life, such as slow-speed
zones and permit reviews for
dock building.
Rose, an aquatic biologist
who used to work for the
state's environmental regula-
tion agency, said he is familiar
with agencies that don't fol-
low the law. He quit his state
job years ago in frustratioiJ
over the lack of enforcement,
of policies. ... a
"By federal law, when
reviewing development per-
mits, the (U.S. Army) Corps
and the (U.S. Fish and
Wildlife) Service are not
allowed to permit activity that
would cause more than a
negligible impact on the pop-
ulation (of .manatees).. -
called an incidental taking."
Rose said. I I
He said that, with water-
craft collisions taking the lives
of many manatees, 'the
threshold for greater than
incidental takings has been
met.
Last year, 396 manatees
died in Florida, with 80 df.
those deaths caused by colli-
sions with watercraft.
The Fish and Wildlife '
Service's review of the mana-


:ee says that more than 1,000
iving manatees are "scarred
from boat injuries, and that
97 percent have scar patterns
from multiple boat strikes."
Many of the manatees are
"severely mutilated," the
report said. ,. , ,
At least two carcasses exam-
ined after death had evidencee
of more than 50 past collisions
with watercraft."
Manatee death's in
Southwest Floridy have been
greater than elsewhere in, the
state. And the number of ves-
sels in Southwf st Florida
waters continues to increase
at more than 20 percent in
five years.
The Army Corps had agreed
to do a cumulative impact
assessment to gauge the effect
of the additional vessels and
docks on the manatee.
However, Rose said there has
been no such assessment
done. And now father than
meet the federal la s, lobbyists
for the industries are trying to
change the laws.
Hankla said his organiza-
tion has had a difficult time
coming up wih 'a method of
determining the cumulative
effect of perminrted activity on
the manatee. -
"It's not simply a n~ifir of
saying, 'If you issue this num-
ber of permits at this location,
you'll have this kind of impact
on manatees! The law says
we are supposed to look at
the cumulative effect, but
what are the most sensitive
aspects that have an impact
on manatees? And, .just
because yol 'do6"' scientific
study, doesn't mean you are
going to get the answer.
While the report on. the
status of the manatee pointed
out that manatees in
Southwest Florida and' the
Upper St. Johns River region
remain endangered, the' U.S.
Fish and Wildlife 'Service sup-
ported Florida Fishi" and
Wildlife's ieconimendation to
.doTwnlist tihe manate.. '..
"'We were satisfied "that
they had proper- findings
based on state procedures,"
Hankla said.

Williams said. "Then it be-

She initiated a study in
,,which brands ~nd models
were compared for effective-
ness and service. ,

making everyone hapjy
.. except Smith & Wesson."
From her criminalistics
staff came a complaint about
the computer program they
were using to catalog and
track evidence, complicating
their efforts to maintain the
chain of custody.
C "As a result, we have put
a request in our budget for
-' new softi'are enhancements'
y which will enable all the con-
i nected computer systems
inhol;ed to talk to each other
and keep a better handle on"

Firsts
Most people know that
Williams is the first female
police chief for the city of
Venice. Some may not be
aware, however, she is also
the first chief in 28-years to
be brought in from "out-
side," breaking the long-
standing .tradition of pro-
moting from within.
though that decision ruf-
fed aa few feathers at first, it
appears that everyone in the
department now realizes
and appreciates the wisdom

Crash course,
A well-educated and sea-
soned law enforcement vet-
eran, Williams has an associ-
ate's degree in business from
Lansing Community College;
a' bachelor's; in law.' enforce-
ment at Northern Michigan


University in Marquette,
summa cum laude; and a
master's degree from Mich-
igan State University in East
Lansing, again with top, hon-
ors. She also successfully
'completed the FBI National
Academy in Quantico, Va.
Since Williams is certified
as a law enforcement officer
only in Michigan, the under-
standing when she was hired
here was that, as soon as
possible, she would do what
is necessary to get certified
in Florida.
To that end, she recently
attended a two-week Equi-
valency of Training course at
St. Petersburg community
college that included re-
freshers in defensive tactics,
high-liability operations, fire-
arms, first responder in-
struction and a 10-hour
"crash course" in legal mat-
ters for law enforcement
officers.
"With that completed, I
will now be scheduled for the
written test by which I will
actually become Florida certi-
fied," she said. "It is the same
test taken by all law enforce-
ment recruits' in this state,
so that kind of levels the field
for everyone.
"I do expect to pass it,
though."
The career ladder
Williams started as a patrol
officer in a busy downtown
precinct in Lansing in 1981,
then was transferred to an
undercover squad. Because of
her expertise in self-defense,
Williams also -became an
instructor in defensive tactics.
She was then invited to be the
department's first female
canine officer.
'When the opportunity
arose in 1989 for prb6inotion
to detective, she 'scored at
:the top of the eligibility list,
and was assigned to the
"youth and sex squad."
In 1990, she was promoted
to patrol sergeant, and over
'~e next three years worked
all the shifts while supprvis-
t.ifg'6i''"oHly "'phtrbP6Bers"
but also canine operations
.and internal affairs investi-
gations. She was the first
'female in the Lansing Police
.Department to be assigned
to internal affairs the' offi-
cers who investigate other
officers charged with wrong-
doing,
Before leaving IA, Williams
had been promoted to lieu-
tenant. In 1995 she became
executive lieutenant, and
transferred to the technical
services bureau. Her specific
assignment was to supervise
the department's records
division and "bring them up
to speed" by implementing a
new records management
system.
Upon the successful com-
pletion of that project, she
transferred back to shift/
patrol lieutenant over Lans-
ing's South Precinct, super-
vised up to 50 employees.
She was promoted to shift/
patrol captain, and then in
January 2000, was transferred
to administrative services
captain.
Her promotion to assist-
ant chief over field opera-
tions and support services
came in January 2003.
Support services included
the countywide 9-1-1 emer-
gency radio system and dis-
patchers who served 27 dif-
ferent entities within the
county
Strong foundation
Williams retired from the
Lansing Police Department
in September 2005, but she
was not ready to stop work-
.ing altogether. Checking the
Internet for opportunities,
she saw an advertisement
from the city of Venice, which
was looking to replace retiring
Chief Jim Hanks.
She applied and cleared
every hurdle in the city's
interview process to become
the No. 1 choice of the


screening panel. She has
been drawing on all aspects
of her vast experience in her
new job.
"One of my greatest chal-
lenges when looking at is-
sues in my role as chief,"
Williams said, "is to find the
balance between how much
internal, departmental his-


torical information I need,
versus what I can observe
and analyze based on my
past training and experi-
ence."
"I got to know about due
process through the internal
affairs assignment," Williams
said, "and I got a lot of practi-
cal skills in supervision, in-
terviewing and investigation
during the detective and
sergeant/lieutenant assign-
ments.
"What has been most
helpful, however, during
these first few months was
the experience in adminis-
trative services HI, IT,
budget, records, etc. that's
where a lot of the initial prob-
lems here came to light."
"My staff has been par-
ticularly helpful with each
situation," she said. "They're
learning how I look at and
interpret things, and the type
of information I need to make
an evaluation. Especially in
light of my being distracted
by outside demands like the
certification process, they

have been very patient and
supportive."
Enjoying it
According to her staff, the
feeling is mutual.
"The chief has been a
great mentor for me, and is
definitely a problem solver,"
said records supervisor Teri
Krabill. "She is not afraid to
deal with any problem, and
she truly sees the potential
in people and works to bring
it out."
"Chief Williams' experi-
ence in a larger agency has
been very beneficial! for us,"
said Robin Carter, who is one
of the department's adminis-
trative aides assigned to HR
functions. "She is very intel-
ligent and innovative, and
has really brought a fresh
perspective on personnel
issues. I hope she is as happy
with us as we are with her."
Another administrative
aide, Babette Anderson, is the
chief's assistant and works
very closely with her each
day.


"Her energy and dedica-
tion is amazing," she said.
"She listens very seriously to
everyone, and wants to make
good changes. I think she is
a good example of putting
in an honest day's work, but
at the same time enjoying
what she does every day."
Common ground
Born and raised near
Lansing, Williams said most
of her siblings four broth-
ers, two sisters still live
there, while another brother
resides in Texas.
Williams' husband of 23
years, Lewis, also retired from
law enforcement before they
moved to Florida. He was a
police officer with the Lans-
ing Township Police Depart-
ment, which was responsible
for designated communities
around the city. All the town-
ship police were also depu-
tized by the Ingham County
Sheriff's Department. An
experienced officer and
firearms instructor, he is now
looking for work in this area

also.
But in the meantime, they
enjoy walking their dogs and
working out in their home
exercise room. In the little
spare time she has, Williams
is an avid reader of profes-
sional journals and true-
crime stories.
"I always .learn something
from the cases handled by
other agencies because they
demonstrate both good and
bad police work," she said.
Summarizing her man-
agement philosophy, Wil-
liams said, "I have to ap-
proach it like running a
business by focusing on
economy, efficiency, quality
and always being profession-
al. I really want to do what's
best for the employees of the
city. That's our common
ground.
"They care about what
they do in their jobs. They
sincerely want to serve the
community as well as suc,
ceed in their chosen career,
and that's exactly what I
want."

Cardio Tennis is a heart-pumping fitness regimen


Sam Vendemia goes through the warm-up stage of cardio tennis. SUN PHOTOS BY SUSAN CAIRO
Linda Thompson of Venice is getting back into the swing after 25 years. She is practicing with
Ula.


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER

Tennis players are giving
cardio tennis a try at Court-
side Tennis Club.
Courtside started a program
this summer that is geared to
all ages and levels of play.
"This includes beginners,"
club president Barbara
Vendemia said. "This is more
exciting than a structured
workout routine. It keeps you
moving and gives a full body
workout."
Ula Bueik, a certified ten--
nis professional, teaches the
cardio tennis classes.
"Cardio tennis includes a
short dynamic warm-up, a
cardio workout, and a cool
down phase," she said. "The
balls are hit to players based
on their ability and fitness
level. This way all players
keep moving and are chal-
lenged. The important thing
is they are having fun doing
it."
Bueik is from Poland and
has been in this country for
six years.


"I welcome the opportuni-
ty to bring this workout to the
wonderful people in Venice."
She lives on Venice Island
and has two children.
"One of the benefits of car-
dio tennis is that you can
burn more calories than sin-
gles or doubles," she said.
"You get short cycles of high-
intensity workout and then
you rest for a period. You are
constantly in motion. This
type of workout is great for all
ages and takesin beginners."
Cardio tennis is new. It is
now offered in more than 650
places nationwide. According
to the president of the Tennis
Industry Association, it is
offered at more than 650 clin-
ics nationwide and about
15,000 people nationwide all
have taken the classes.
'A typical cardio tennis for-
mat is five to 10 minutes of
warmup drills; 30-50 minutes
of cardio workout drills and
five to 10 minutes of cool-
down drills," Bueik said.
"When you play regular ten-
nis matches you do not keep
a player's heart rate elevated


Ula Bueik, certified tennis professional, teaches the cardio
tennis classes.


consistently as exercise class-
es do."
I Terry Batzer of Venice took
a moment of rest-from the
class to share her opinion on
the program.
'Anything I can do to help
sweat is a great thing," she said.
"Ula puts on a good drill."
Batzer's 10-year-old daugh-
ter Audrey was with her.
'"Audrey .takes children's
classes here and she is a bet-
ter player than I am," Batzer
said. .
Linda Thomson was sitting
out a session.
"I am just trying to get back
into tennis and haven't
played in 25 years," she said.
"These clinics are marvelous
and really are a fun way to get
back into shape and meet
new people. Ula has such
high energy that she keeps us
going."
Laurie Mooney, who was
just beginning her workout,
said that after the cardio ten-
nis workout members can
play a, game to keep their
heartbeat going.
"I started playing when I


was 40 years old and have
been playing for many, many
years," Mary Ellen Diez of
Englewood said. "This is an.
excellent way to stay fit. Older
people just get lethargic and
they think that entertainment
is to go out and play bingo.
Tennis is for people well into
their 80s."
Just one example of a sep-
tuagenarian tennis player is
Lou Faustino, 74.
"I play tennis three times a
week' but I am one of the'
youngsters here we have
members taking classes and
playing that are up to 94 years
old."
Membership in Courtside
is not required for cardio ten-
nis clinic participants, which
is open to anyone. Sessions
are $10 per person. The pro-
gram will continue through
June 2007. Bueik is available
for private lessons in tennis at
the club.
Courtside Tennis Club is
at 512 North Auburn Road,
Venice. For more informa-
tion, call the club at 485-
2000.

- are arctic foxes to follow?


LARRY ALLAN
FRESH AR COLUMNIST

My wife and I just saw the
movie about global warming,
'An Inconvenient Truth," nar-
rated by Al Gore. First, let me
assure you, this is not a politi-
cal issue. It is an environmen-
tal issue, and an issue with
which we should all be con-
cerned.
I won't even try to summa-
rize the very thorough and
complete scientific picture
drawn in that movie. But I do
want to share with you the
present day plight of the polar
bear, whose existence is being
severely threatened by global
warming right now.
I remember fondly the
many encounters I've had
with these huge, white bears
- all in zoos, unfortunately.
June and I even helped fund
the large and habitat-correct
exhibit for polar bears at the
San Diego Zoo. But polar
bears, the largest land-dwel-
ling carnivores on earth, have
just been "red-listed." That
means this species is vulnera-
ble, and it's a more serious
ranking than "threatened"!
In fact, the Natural Re-
sources Defense Council
states that the world's polar
bear population could de-
cline 30 per cent over the next
45 years all due to habitat
loss. Polar bear habitat is
defined as "broken ice packs
at the northern edge of the
continent, near the North
Pole; seldom far inland." In
the movie, it's pointed out
that polar bears are frequent-
ly drowning because there's so
much less ice for them to
crawl up on. Though strong
swimmers, the huge bears
simply become exhausted
and give up swimming be-
cause so many of those bro-
ken ice packs have melted. Up
until now, polar bears were
seldom known to drown.
Why is there less ice? Since
1979, more than 20 percent of
the polar ice cap has melted,
due to global warming. You
might want to look at a web
site that details some of this
important information: save-
biogems.org. That's the
Natural Resources Defense
Council, an environmental
group of 1.2 million mem-
bers, whose function is to
"safeguard the earth: people,
plants and animals."
Arctic fox tracks are fre-
quently associated with bear
tracks. Polar bear tracks are
similar to those of a grizzly
bear (though a little rounder,
and often blurred by fur), but
the only bear tracks found on


an ice flow were put there by
polar bears.
When food is plentiful in
warmer weather, the small,
white arctic foxes prove to be
excellent hunters. They even
store food for the impending
cold season. But in winter it's
difficult for them to capture
or reclaim sufficient food.
Arctic foxes have found that.
following polar bears and eat-
ing whatever is left by the
bears can sustain life. With-
out the bears, will arctic foxes
survive? Nature is a complex-
ity of interwoven fates.
Why should we in Florida
be concerned about these
arctic dwellers? Well, back to
the movie, '"An Inconvenient
Truth," for the answer to that
question. If global warming
causes the polar ice cap (and
Greenland and Antarctica) to
melt, the seas will rise so
much so that great portions
of our state will then be under
water. The scientists have it
worked out precisely. You'll
see-the details in the movie.
Which of our homes will be
under that flood? I don't want
to find out!
For our own well-being, as
well as for the polar bears and
the arctic foxes, we're going to
do all we can in our house-
hold to reduce the threat of
global warming. We hope you
will, too!

Allan is an award-winning

This arctic fox is digging for its next meal, but in deep winter, it must rely on the "leavings" of polar bears to maintain itself. If
polar bears disappear, will this little creature be able to sustain itself, or will this species also be doomed by starvation?

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


By Vicki Connell, |
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
.Q. For the past 5 years I
have protected myself from
loud noises yet my hearing
continues t(o decline. Can you
suggest anything which will
reduce or stop my continued
hearing loss?
A. Most causes of hearing loss
are never known. Medications
and diseases associated with
small vessel disease are the
major concerns. Arthritis,
diabetes, and heart disease are
all associated with a higher
incidence of hearing loss.
Smoking, which creates free
radicals, has been associated
with increasing the probability
of hearing loss. Anti-oxidants,
such as vitamin E have been
associated with the prevention
of noise induced hearing loss..
Unfortunately, even if you live
healthy and take all precautions
possible, the majority of us will
slowly develop hearing loss.
The inner ear hair cells do not
replace themselves and once
they are lost, their function
cannot' be recovered. This is
why an annual hearing
examination by a certified
audiologist should be part, of
every persons health plan. Call
the Audiologists at
Woodmere Hearing &
Balance Centers, Inc. at 492-
4327 today to schedule your
audiologic assessment.

bicycle for
exercise, your bike
should fit your body like a glove.
SBegin by positioning the seat
correctly to protect your knees. At the
bottom of your stroke, your knee should only he
slightly bent. If your knee is bent too much,
your seat is too low and you will stress your
knee. On lhe 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 'Nour shoulders or slightly
narrower.

with the many pains and strains that can result from

e true meaning of seasonal waterfront




The true meaning of seasonal waterfront


SLIM RANDLES
;L:- 1 J.i^


Delbert McLain dropped
in at the Mule Barn yesterday
for a quick cup. He was
wearing his usual suit and
tie, despite the heat.. Usually
Delbert does his coffee
drinking and, socializing out
at the country club where


the business guys go. We've
been there, and the chairs
don't fit as well.
For the past 10 years now,
Delbert has run the local
chamber of commerce. We
all have to admit he was a
good choice. His job is to
promote our town and the
surrounding area, which he
does by prowling through
the town his ample belly
flying under a full spinnaker
- looking for out-of-state
plates on the cars during
tourist season, and then
convincing the visitors they
should 1. live here forever,
2. hire locals to build them
a huge house, and 3. to start
a business that will hire as
many of us as they can
stand.


According to Delbert, sev-
eral things are certain about
our area here: It is the only
place in the world that will
,grow\, our wvarer Is so good
we don't 'need dentists ex-
cept during our tourist sea-
son, the deer in the sur-
rounding hills are easy to
hunt and are the size of
horses, the fish in Lewis Creek
are so big children are fright-
ened to swim there and our
average life expectancy is
right around 104.
"Boys," Delbert said with
his constant grin, "it's look-
ing like a good summer. I
can't tell all the details now,
but it looks like we may be
getting three factories arid
you know how many houses
they'll have to build out on


the flats to hold all the
employees."
"Delbert," said Doc, "you
know they shouldn't build
out, on the t1ats: That thing
floods out about every six
years."
Delbert saddened there
for just a minute as he stirred
his coffee, then the sales
gleam relit the surface of his
face.
"That's it!" he yelled. "We
can call it 'seasonal water-
front!'"

AARP and The Home Depot offer


free brochure for Floridians 50+


STAFF REPORT

AARP and The Home
Depot are working together to
help those age 50-plus make
their homes safer, more mod-
em and more livable. As part
of the alliance, five brochures
are available at all The Home
Depot stores in Florida.
"The Home Depot and
AARP Florida have a strong
presence in Florida. Because
our state often experiences
hurricanes and a large and
growing number of seniors
call Florida their home, we
have created these five
brochures. These materials
help people 50+ prepare their
homes for the hurricane sea-
son, as well as their daily rou-
tine. Individuals can pick up
one or all of the brochures
and learn practical home
design, maintenance and
safety tips while visiting one
of The Home Depot's Florida
stores," said Bentley Lip-


scomb, AARP Florida State
Director.
The brochures inform
those 50+ about:
How to prevent accidents
in the home
How to create a more liv-
able space as their needs
change with advancing age
How to protect their
homes against hurricanes
and other natural disasters
Why are the brochures
important?
Hurricane season began
June 1.
All Floridians should
make their homes as safe as
possible. According to the
Centers for Disease Control,
falls are a major cause of
injury and death and for
people 65+, falls are the lead-
ing cause of injury-related
death.
Floridians 50+ should be
especially sensitive to safety.
Falls and other safety hazards


can threaten both their health
and independence. A few
easy-to-follow steps can help
avoid problems.
The brochures teach those
50+ how to:
Rate their homes for safe-
ty and efficiency
Hire a contractor
Increase safety and liv-
ability in the kitchen, bath-
room and hallway
Determine the best type
of lighting
Prepare for hurricanes
Seek assistance, after a
hurricane
Where can I find the
brochures?
They are available at all
The Home Depot stores in
Florida. Look for them in
these in-store depart-
ments: Fire Safety, Bath-
room Faucets, Light Bulbs,
Kitchen Appliances and
Flooring.

Cruising can be a therapeutic vacation


BY LIZ LARRABEE
GUEST WRITER

You awaken, dress, leave
your bed crumpled, and take
the elevator to the chande-
liered, mahogany-paneled
dining room where you are
served an elegant breakfast.
Your routine, as planned, is
to exercise your butt off (or
your beer belly or cellulite
thighs) so you head for the
fitness center. After a strenu-
ous workout,. you swim and
soak in the hot tub, followed
by a mid-morning cup of
coffee, yogurt and a Danish
pastry to replace the calories
you've just sweated off.
You change clothes, and
meet up with new friends for
a game of bridge, maybe try
your luck at Bingo or trot
over to the casino where you
generously donate a week's
salary to the betterment of
mankind. Shoving bills into
slot machines stimulates
your appetite. At lunch you
pig out on an array of fruit,
salad, soup, hot dishes, sand-
wiches, and raspberry pie,
or you wander to pool side
where pasta, pizza ,or ham-
burgers and French fries
tempts every fat cell in your
body.
You drool and partake of
each platter.
Now for a tango lesson,
your appointment with the
hairdresser, or a seminar on
flower arranging (how could
you miss that?).
You can bid on a Peter
Max painting at the art auc-
tion or find a quiet corner in
the library and write in your
journal after you have


previewed the six or seven
bars on board for later in-
dulgences. You may then
stroll down the corridor 100
feet to the movies, or doze
off to the slish-slosh of the
ship's wake on a comfortable
deck chair.
Would you believe it's
munch time again?
On go the chic evening
wear and jewels for formal
dining if you're the type
who appreciates 11 pieces of
silverware around your plate,


to waste energy in pursuit of
seconds.
Dance off four desserts to
a live trio in the lounge or
make your way to the theater
and enjoy the rousing musi-
cal revue. Then gaze at the
moon and stars from the aft
deck before you toddle off to
your re-toweled and straight-
ened up stateroom, that is, if
you're worn out from over-
exertion. Otherwise, make
for the disco to boogie off a
few ounces before the end of

across your lap with delicate
finesse, twisting a few grains
of ground pepper in your
soup, and hovering about
like a guardian angel. If you
prefer a basic chow-down
atmosphere, load up your
tray at the casual dining buf-
fet and plunk your rear end
close to the counter so as not


a fun-filled, leave-your-cares-
behind kind of day. Ah, that
this could go on forever!
The kicker is: you've been
wined, dined, and enter-
tained without traveling
more than a thousand feet
from your bedroom; you're
still at "home!"

neighbor's yapping Yorkie is
a thousand miles away. If
you're either sick, or about
to become sick, or just plain
sick and tired of the rat race,
you've spent a lot less money
on a cruise than a stay in
the nuthouse, and you've
contributed to the demise of
psychiatry as a solution for
depression, marital woes,
and impending bankruptcy.
There's more. Without
having to. start up your
BMW, you can experience
other cultures, whether on
the ship's excursions, or
winging it on your own.
Once you disembark, make
friends with the natives.
They'll direct you to the taxi
stand or a guide while giving
you a crash course on Jungles
101. How about swinging
over the treetops on a cable,
scuba diving from a catama-
ran, hiking to Mayan ruins
or, from the Mediterranean,
a peek at Pompeii, a jaunt to
the Acropolis, a quickie trip
to view the Sphinx? Then
"home" to stateroom Number
9017 without spending a dol-
lar on a hotel bill.
After an exhilarating day,
what do you do next? Eat.
Traditional cruise ships
versus a freighter cruise
All this can happen by
freighter for about the, same
price, with no entertainment,
nor so fancy a dinner plate,
and little deck space on which
to race about. However, the
staterooms are usually larger,
the voyages longer, the ports
more exotic and the itinerary
likely to change and not in-
clude St. Thomas. Changes
are a bonus because, if you're
fortunate, you could end up
i at the far end of the Orinoco 5
River. After all, adventure is
the reason why you've chos-
en a freighter, and the other
passengers are likely to be
of the same spirit all
three, maybe 10, of them!

When the Disney cruise ships pull in to Castaway Cay for the
day, guests can spend time simply floating on rafts in the
Caribbean.


There are pros and cons
for both cruise ships and
freighters.
Years ago I opted for freigh-
ters because we had two or
three days in port to explore
far-off places. Sometimes we
watched longshoremen toss
cargo into the hold by hand.

DICK HARRISON


For those of you who may
have read my columns in
the past, the name in my
byline may be familiar, but
the photo leaves you scratch-
ing your head and saying,
"Who is that old fud?" There's
a good reason.
You know how you get
attached to old things and
keep them around too long?
That's what happened to the
photo that previously ran
with my articles. My editor
gently reminded me the pic-
ture "had grown weary in
well doing" as it says in the
Scriptures, and it might be
time to replace it with a more
recent headshot. Because she


vanI


also edits the Religion page, I
appreciated the verses she
chose from Galatians and
Thessalonians, instead of hit-
ting me with one from Ec-
clesiastes 1: 2: "vanity of
vanities: all is vanity."
Time creeps up on one as
surely as the touch of gray at
the temples creeps up and
takes over the whole head.
What I need is a politically
correct photo one that
fudges reality without really
lying. That, or a portrait by
the artist Basil Hallward in
Oscar Wilde's "The Picture of
Dorian Gray."
If you remember the story
line, young and beautiful
Dorian Gray (as in my previ-
ous photo) pledges his soul if
the portrait will bear the
burden of age and infamy
rather than show on his
uncreased physiognomy.
Sure enough, as the years
pass his face never changes,
but the portrait does, be-
coming. so dreadful Dorian
hides it in the attic. This
simile stretches my particu-
lar situation in both direc-
tions young and beautiful

is a bit of an overstatement
as is, I sincerely hope, my age
and infamy. But, you probably
get the point without further
elaboration.
Photos don't age. The fact
was brought home to me one
evening a few years ago when
my friend of longest standing
(better said than, "my oldest
friend") were reviewing slides
of the girlfriends we dated
when we, and they, like
Dorian Gray, were young and
beautiful. In our mind's eye
we were seeing them as they
were, until we remembered
we had recently met one of
the beauties coming out of a
local podiatrist's office, with
her granddaughter, wearing
a pair of those funny shoes.
Realizing that a lady we re-
called principally for having
great legs now had "bad feet"
put a damper on the rest of
the evening.
Before allowing the photo
replacement, I considered


our portraits seem to change a'
little every time we win a case?
GRAPHIC COURTESY OF DICK HARRISON


coughing up enough cash to
have a professional portrait
taken by a really creative
photographer one who
has the equipment, gauze-
covered lens and expertise to
do what Elizabeth Taylor's
has been able to do for her.
These days there are ways
to turn creases into mere gul-
lies, but I've searched the
Web and haven't found any-
where I can buy Botox by


the gallon.
I guess I'm stuck with the
photo you see here until
one of you readers writes in
and suggests a better alterna-
tive.
One thing you can be sure
of: You'll never get a look at
the-one I've hidden in the
attic!

sea.
On a recent cruise, for
the first 36 hours or so,
Hurricane Wilma was toss-ing
in the Caribbean on its ram-
page towards Nicaragua.
Many passengers could not
stand on their feet long
enough to make it out of
their stateroom as we bash-ed
into 16-foot surges. After four
days at sea, and delightful
excursions in St. Maarten and
St. Lucia, we heard a rumbling
sound at dinner time. Our
waiter explained, with a big
grin, that the propeller was
only making an adjustment
- happens all the time "ha
ha." The next evening the cap-
tain announced that an
engine had malfunctioned,
we were
loping along at 17 knots on
three engines, and sorry
folks, but for your safety, we
must change our itinerary ...
no Barbados tomorrow. We'll
dock at Antigua, then directly
to St. Thomas on our way to
Ft. Lauderdale for repairs.
"Anyplace but St. Thomas!"
I had instructed, my travel
agent when planning the
cruise.
That's how it goes. The
sweet and not-so-sweet. Just
like real life.

Woof! I am Lucy on the.left, and I just had my second birthday not long ago. When I went to the doctor, he said I was get-
ting to be a big girl; I am a 36-pound Corgi mix. I like to play with other dogs, and especially people. Miles, on the right, is
one of my best friends in the whole wide world, and we have a lot of fun together! He is 4 years old, and twice my size,
the vet said almost 80 pounds. He is a yellow lab mix. He is sweet and plays really nice with me. Our foster mom and dad
cannot keep us much longer, and are worried about us, that makes me sad. I know there are a lot of nice people that
Miles and I can love and protect, even if we can't stay together. Both of us have all our shots and are spayed/neutered:
Won't you call EARS Animal Rescue Sanctuary at 475-0636 to adopt us?

Dream Maker Homes fuel affordable home market


By DONNA DAVIDSON
FEATURES EDITOR
Affordable workforce
housing is coming to
Charlotte and Lee counties.
Innovative Development
Group, builders of Cat 5
hurricane homes, unveiled a
new line of homes called
Dream Maker Thursday.


These homes are priced
affordably starting at
$150,000, which includes the
land, site improvement,
landscaping and all impact
fees.
"We build homes with
Category 5 hurricane fea-
tures," said Osvaldo Otero,
CEO of Innovative Develop-


ment Group.
"These hurricane standards
are in all the homes that we
are building for the county's
teachers, policemen, fire
fighters, municipal workers
and hospital employees.
We have stepped up to the
plate and are building homes
they can afford so they can


live in the same community
where they work."
According to Mr. Otero,
Innovative has not asked the
counties for any impact fee
relief, donation of land or
supportive funding for the
Dream Maker homes.
"Innovative is here to help
solve the housing problem,


not add to it," he said.
The homes will be available
in development phases with
Dream Maker: Englewood I
project being built first with 12
homes. The model home is on
11415 Poplin Ave., Englewood.
Innovative Development
Group's new sales office is
located at 1600 Tamiami Trail,


Ste. 200, Port Charlotte, Fla.
Charlotte County Commis-
sioners, representatives from
the Sheriff's office, the munici-
pality and the school district
were on hand for the ribbon
cutting of these affordable
homes Thursday.

DREAM
From page 4

"We are then going to open
up phases in Lee County and
additional phases in Char-
lotte County," Otero said.
"We are excited by the
support the Dream Maker
Homes plan has received
from the counties and we
look forward to county
employees moving into their
own homes and no longer
having to pay rent. Though
our goal is to offer incentive
housing to this work group,
anyone can purchase a
Dream Maker Home from
us."
The homes, with model
names like The Concord, The
Laurel and The Juniper, are
fully equipped with appli-
ances, ceramic tile bath-
rooms, lanais, landscaping,
smoke detectors and much
more.
Some models have two
bedrooms/two baths, others
have three bedrooms/two
baths.
Many models include
garages and are equipped
with generator-ready power
panels.

INTERIOR VIEWS OF VIVANTE


Parade Winner: In the 2006 Parade model was judged the best. The eat-in kitchen with an open breakfast
bar has 42-inch white, thermo foil raised-panel cabinets, granite coun-
tertops with an upscale appliance package. The ceilings are.9-feet-9-
inches high and all window sills are Corian. Owners-can choose from
16-by-16-inch Travertine or hardwood in the living/dining room, den;,
foyer, baths and hallways. Choose from four carpet selections for the
bedrooms and closets.


Peaceful Retreat: Wake up to soothing views of gently lapping waves. Serenity and an unobstructed view of Charlotte Harbor, or a stocked
lake, are yours. You can ponder a day of fishing on a private 200-foot-long pier, swimming or soaking in a heated spa, or reading a good book
on the super-sized lanai right out your bronze aluminum sliding glass door.


Designed for the Discriminating HomeojWner: Views of the living room and dining area, a guest room and the master bath show off examples of interior design possibilities. Stock Development specializes in
country club properties, like the celebrated golf course communities: Grandezza, Lely Resort and Olde Cypress Golf & Country Club. Joint development partner, Gabriel M. Bove, delivers visionary designs, engineering
expertise and the skills of a craftsman to the project. For more information about Vivante in Punta Gorda, call 941-833-8999, 1-800-901-0106 or visit their www.vivante-fi.com Web site.

To blog or not to blog


- that is the question


Q Should I be using a blog
for marketing purpos-
es?
A. The efficacy of
logging as a marketing
vehicle is unproven. Blogs are
relatively new and entrepre-
neurs and corporations alike
are just now starting to
experiment with using them.
Depending on your busi-
ness, starting a blog could be a
low-cost method of boosting
your profile with potential
customers and the media and
even helping your Web site's
ranking in "organic" search
results. It could also be a time-
consuming effort that yields
relatively little benefit to your
bottom line. It all depends on
the commitment you're willing
to maker to your blog and its
content.
Although this may be
unnecessary now, let me first
point out what a blog is for
those who still may be a bit
uncertain. (If you're reading
this, you probably already


know.)
A "blog" (formerly "Web
log") is a publishing tool -
there are many on the market
- that is simple to set up and
update. You can usually have
one up and running in
minutes, literally. They are
typically hosted and entirely
Web-based. Regardless of the
provider, they also tend to
resemble one another. Here
,are several of the leading
vendors:
Google's Blogger,
www.blogger.com
SixApart, www.six
apatt.com, which owns three
blog products: Moveable Type,
TypePad and LiveJournal
WordPress, wordpress.org/


There are many more
hosted blogging applications
and all the major portals have
blogging tools, including AOL,
Yahoo, MSN, and Lycos. All of
those are free, as is Blogger.
Blogs that are merely
transparent marketing vehicles
and carry only ad copy or
promotional messages are
probably destined to fail. They
likely will be ignored because
they're not.perceived to have'
any real content or value.
There's too much noise on
the Internet for people to
waste time reading your blog if
they're not getting any helpful
or interesting information.
However, a blog that doesn't
in some way promote your


products or service is, by
definition, not a marketing
vehicle. Finding the right.
balance between promotional
copy.and informational
content is where the art of
marketing comes in.
You should really see your
blog as a way to make people
aware of your products and
services rather than as a
source of direct sales.
Generally, blogging is
probably better suited for
service providers (where
reputation and other intangi-
bles apply) than for product
sellers (where price or location
are typically bigger factors).
But let's make all this much
more concrete.
If you're a local Realtor and
you put up a blog that con-
tains only your listings,
you're not going to get as
much response in the end as
if you provide tips or infor-
mational pieces, in addition
to your listings, that some-
how help buyers or sellers.


For example, content and
informational articles such as
"Ten things to do before
selling your home" or "How
to minimize closing costs" or
"Should I get an ARM or a
30-year fixed loan?" are going
to be valuable content and
ultimately help build "your
brand." If you don't have
time to generate original
posts although blogs can
be informal and posts
relatively short you can
write introductions or
summaries of publicly
available articles related to
your business or industry
and post links to third-party
sites on your blog.
Once you've got a blog,
you'll need to let people
know it exists or otherwise
enable your blog to be found.
The "blogosphere" is some-
thing of a Tower of Babel,; and
rising above the din can be a
challenge. In many cases,
search engines will index
your blog. But it probably


won't rank highly in search
results unless it's about a very
obscure subject.
In other words, promoting
your blog is analogous to the
challenge of promoting your
Web site. And all the tech-
niques that apply to promot-
ing your site apply to your
blog.
If you're feeling exhausted
at this point, you probably
won't have the patience or
energy to maintain a blog
(posting frequency can vary,
but should be regular). You
may also see a blog and your
site as redundant.
But if you give it time, you
could find a blog helps
establish your credibility or
.expert status in your field,
which will ultimately help
deliver clients or customers.
Of course, you don't have to
decide all this in the abstract.
You can try it for a month or
two and see if you like it or if
the life of a blogger just isn't
for you.
