Tiki hut


owner going


to go to court



County zoning officials ordered the popular
outdoor bar closed almost two years ago. But
the county may have inadvertently created a
legal loophole that will allow it to reopen.


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

Legal wheels are finally
turning in an effort to reopen
the popular tiki bar on
Blackburn Road near the
north entrance to Casey Key.
It has been closed since late
2004 when Sarasota County
zoning officials determined it
was operating illegally.
Last week, Sarasota attor-
ney Robert Lincoln filed a 20-
page complaint with the 12th
Circuit Court and sought a
judicial determination to
clarify whether state or coun-
ty rules apply to the 801
Blackburn Point Road site
which includes the Casey Key,
Fish House.
"We are not interested in
embarrassing anybody and
are willing to make conces-
sions," said restaurant and
marina owner Jim Von Hu-
bertz. "If the judge rules fav-
orably on our motions, we'd
be willing to sit down with the
county and work things out."
The court brief filed by
Lincoln describes a history of
decisions made by county
zoning officials who tried to
juggle the provisions of a 1970
legislative act adopted to pro-
tect north Casey Key with a
1995 county rezoning of the
site that may take prece-
dence.
Accessory
State rules prohibit further
commercial expansion on the
barrier island's north end,
while the county-approved
Commercial Marine and Mz-
rine Park zoning provides
more extensive environmen-


tal protection for the area
along with some latitude for
"accessory uses."
The Casey Key Fish House
and previous restaurants at
the site pre-date the 1970
state act, but the county com-
plicated matters when it is-
sued a building permit in
1999 for the marina and rest-
aurant that went unchal-
lenged until the tiki bar was
ordered closed in 2004.
In Autumn 2004, county
zoning officials threw another
legal wrinkle into the already
complicated case of which
rules apply to the site when it
questioned whether the tiki
hut complied with federal
regulations for flood-prone
areas.
, "The (Casey Key) Fish
House is in doubt of its rights
to be free from the invalid and
inoperative regulation im-
posed by the (1970 Florida)
act," Lincoln summarized,
"and has a real, present and
immediate need for a deter-
mination by this court of the
validity and effectiveness of
the act."
Section 11 of the 1970 leg-
islation reads in part: "it being
the specific intent of this act
to provide for and apply such
zoning, conservation and air
and water pollution stan-
dards as will be most protec-
tive of the natural beauty,
marine and wildlife of the
area."

have opened the door to an

County to cities: Show us progress



or we'll show you the ballot


BY STEVENJ. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


Deadline: Friday, Jan. 12.
That's the drop-dead date
Sarasota County commis-
sioners have given city offi-
cials from Venice and North
Port to show "progress" on
the ongoing annexation con-
troversy. Otherwise, they say,
they'll do what they threat-
ened to do last Thursday: Put
the issue on the ballot for the
people to decide. The vote
would take place on March
13.
But exactly what progress
do they need to see?
According to Commission-
er Shannon Staub, "I think
that we have to come to grips
with the. financial capability
of the county to still keep a
balance of county priorities
put upon us by immediate
development of annexed
lands in both cities."
There are a lot of different
revenue streams that coun-
ties get and split with cities,
Staub explained. Two are the
gas tax and the sales tax,.
which are divided up by the
county and cities based on
population.
"We have to make sure we
are keeping our fair share in
order to take care of infra-
structure equiremllents [that
(the cities') development will
cause us, to finance," Staub
added.
Staub cited a library and a
jail as two examples of infra-
structure that will require not
only the funds to build them,
but also the funds to keep
them in operation. A jail in
particular will be needed in
South County soon, she
added, due to the area's re-
cent increase in arrests.
'And if you're talking about
a jail, the last one cost us well
over $20 million," she said.
"Imagine what the next one is
going to cost."
The county's finances
must stay abreast of the cities'
growth, she added, because if
the county does not have the

and Sharon Staub listen.


funds, or has them allocated
to previously committed pri-
orities. "then \ve have to look
at slowing things down."
To the heart
Commissioner Ton Thax-
ton had a key word for the
kind of progress he needed to
see: substantive.
T This joint planning agree-
ment must go to the heart of a
timely coordination on roads,
parks and libraries," he said.
"There are no fewer than four
projects out there right now
ready to break the bank: 1-75,
River Road, the Venice Bypass
and Route 41."
"These projects average
about $100 million. Apiece,"
he added, saying it was time
for everyone -- county and
city officials alike to make a
concerted effort to bring
these projects to fruition.
River Road is a project near
and clear to Staub in particu-


lar, as this thoroughfare is
vital to 'the interests of North
Port, Venice and Englewood.
"It just seems like we don't
have at this point any com-
mnunication tith Venice and
North Port) as to how South
River Road and maybe North,
River Road will be widened
with just county funds,"
Staub said.
The latest projected cost of
widening this important
inter-city artery and evacua-
tion route from 1-75 to Win-
chester Boulevard is $80 mil-
lion, she said.
"I think we're going to have
to have a serious discussion
about a clear understanding
and agreement on what road
concurrency is to each juris-
diction," she added, reaffirm-
ing the necessity for bringing
developers into the cost
equation for roads around
their projects.
"We take it pretty serious-


ly," Staub said. "Right now,
there are five; or six develop-
ments put on hold at the Jaca-
randa'\enice Avenue inter-
section, because that inter-
section has failed. \\We have $5
million allocated to it, but it's
going to cost $11 million. The
developers wanted us to put
in three million more and we
said, 'No. You find the money.
You're the ones who wanted
the development.'"
Optimistic
How North Port or Venice
interprets keeping its infra-
structure on pace with ram-
pant development is a ques-
tion that Staub and Thaxton
say they want answered by
Jan. 12. Or sooner.
"We need to see some real
progress in our joint meet-
ings, which will happen in
late October, early Novem-

Tropical Bob admits he did-

Mexico 200 miles off our coast.
T.B. was reading a book at
10:56 a.m. when the quake
began.
The rumble was an irrita-
tion. T.B. first thought it was a
booming stereo in a car.
Distant thunder? A jet break-

gulf?
An explosion miles from

No longer irritated, T.B.

County approves

amendments to shore setback


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

They drew a line in the
sand. .
Oh Tuesday, Sarasota
County commissioners
approved amendments to the
current coastal setback code
in order to give it more teeth
and avoid more "hardening of
the coastline," as several
called it.
The term. referred to sea
walls, bulkheads and other
structures that shoreline resi-
dents construct in order to
stave off beach erosion and
preserve their property.
During a presentation by
Laird Wreford, the county's
manager of coastal resources,
proposed changes were intro-
duced to the code. They
included:
*Variance approval criteria
- clarifying projects that are
consistent with the code
Accessory structures -
limiting construction of
homes, pools, guest houses,
tennis courts, gazebos and
cabanas located seaward of
the Gulf Beach Setback Line
(a line that corresponds to the
Coastal Construction Control
Line established in 1978 for
Sarasota County)
Shore protection struc-
tures refining and estab-
lishing more rigorous require-
ments for them.
Joint reviews address-
ing projects proposing work
within the jurisdiction of
multiple natural resource
codes
Responsible parties -
creating contractor account-
ability
Listed species requir-
ing approval from appropri-
ate state and federal wildlife


agencies before county
authorization
Fees and compliance -
addressing after-the-fact con-
struction
Beach nourishment pro-
jects
Propane tank installation
After the board sharpened
the language in the code and
authorized a public hearing
for the coastal setback code
amendments, Wreford
announced plans for a public
workshop in October and a
public hearing, scheduled for
Dec. 13. Between now and
then, Wreford promised the
completion of an economic
impact statement and a com-
prehensive plan consistency
review.
The board's actions
appeared to observers to be
part of an effort to circumvent
future actions such as those
that took place in September
of last year, when 17 home-
owners from 8000-8210
Manasota Key Road sought a
variance to install a sheet-pile
steel bulkhead to protect their
homes from beach erosion.
County commissioners at
that time asked staff to inves-
tigate beach replenishment
options after they rejected a
proposal to build a 2,000-
foot-long sea wall on the key.
According to a recent
county staff report, these
structures protect upland
property, but they could harm
"coastal processes, shoreline
stability, neighboring proper-
ties, lateral public pedestrian
access, sea turtle-nesting
beach and coastal hammock
habitat."

Sarasota buys Myakka River tract for $3.1 million


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

Chalk one up for conserva-
tion.
In a 4-1 vote Wednesday,
Sarasota County commis-
sioners voted in favor of pur-
chasing approximately 100
acres of privately held, envi-
ronmentally sensitive land
along the Myakka River in
North Port in order to prevent
its development.
Outgoing Commissioner
David Mills was the lone dis-
senter.
The matter had been an
on-again, off-again issue for
months and became side-
tracked by a conflict-of-inter-
est issue involving County
Administrator Jim Ley's wife,
who was acting as the real
estate agent for the seller.
Since the conflict question
was raised, Tamara Ley has
said she would forgo her
commission. The board also
is writing new conflict poli-
cies to deal with such matters.
On Wednesday, the main
conflict was over the price of
the land slated for purchase.
In a discussion between the
board and a group headed by
Keith Fountain of the Nature
Conservancy, Fountain re-
ferred to a number of ap-
praisals that had been pet-
formed over the last few years,
with the land value skyrocket-
ing from $650,000 in early 2004
to its current appraised value of
$3.1 million.
"The $650,000 was a price
that came with zero permits,"
Fountain told the commis-
sioners, indicating that the
acquisition of permits would
validate the value of the land,
much of it at or near the
waterfront.
This invoked the conster-
nation of Mills and Com-
missioner Nora Patterson,
who felt that the land was val-
ued too highly, especially
when so much of its nearly


100 acres consists of sub-
merged swamp.
Fountain reminded the
commissioners that there
were 14 acres of developable
land. That acreage could sup-
port 57 units, worth $52,000
per unit in today's market, he
added. Figuring in the closing
costs, that brought the prop-
erty's value to $3.1 million.
Commissioner Jon
Thaxton then weighed in on
the issue.
"Is this at or near market
value? Yes," he said. "I don't
know how many of you have
been to this property. It's
beautiful. It has a drop-dead,
to-die-for view and they won't
have any problem selling it
for $3.1 million."
"This is about 2 miles of
sensitive river, sensitive to the
needs of bird life and habitat,"
said Commissioner .Paul
Mercier. "We're going to
regain 100 acres of habitat of
river that's so important."
Patterson voiced her sup-
port of the purchase.
"We can't always be inter-
ested in what land will cost
when (its price) keeps going
up," she said, agreeing that
although the value had
increased dramatically, there
was no reason to doubt it
would increase further.
Commissioner Shannon
Staub concurred, referring to
a recent land purchase in
Englewood that has, since
shown a dramatic jump in
value.
"I think it's a good buy." she
said.
Mills refused to budge.
"I'm not going to support
the motion," Mills said. "The
whole thing has just been
fraught with problems."
SAfter passage of the pur-
chase, Fountain expressed his
satisfaction.
I think this is a tremen-
dous acquisition for the
county," Fountain said. "And
it's a tremendous step for-


ward for that portion of the
Myakka River."
According to a county staff
report, the site contains pine
flatwoods, wetland and
marsh habitats along the
Myakka River. Animal and
plant life at the site, the loca-
tion buffering the state forest
and river frontage all make
the site ecologically impor-


tant, the report adds.
According to a report pre-
pared by Brooke Elias of the
county's Natural Resources
Department, the Myakka
Properties Inc. land is 53 acres
of upland surrounded.by sub-
merged lands.

Correction
The Board of County
Commissioners took no act-
ion in March 2006 regarding
the Urban Service Boundary.
The board did hold three
adoption-stage public hear-
ings for the Evaluation and
Appraisal Report-based
amendments to the com-
prehensive plan, on April 11,


12 and 26. The only move-
ment made to the Urban
Service Boundary was along
a segment of State Road 776
on the east side to make the
comp plan consistent with
tl0e adopted corridor plan
for S.R 776. The Gondolier
Sun reported otherwise in a
story in -the Sept. 13 edition.

Fertilizer run-off tied to red tide


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


Fertilizer use in Sarasota,
Charlotte and Manatee coun-
ties, up by about 15 percent in
each of the past three years, is
being cited as a principal
cause of the new outbreaks of
red tide and coastal pollution.
Nonfarm use lawns for
new developments of single-
family homes and condo-
miniums and golf courses -
took the highest jump. In
Sarasota County those uses
accounted for more than
11,000 tons last year, together
with 17,000 tons in farm
fields.
Charlotte County reported
more than 17,200 tons used
on farms and about 4,500
tons on golf courses and
housing subdivisions. Mana-
tee County reported 84,000
tons for farm use and more
than 9,400 tons in nonfarm
applications.
All were new highs in the
three counties.
According to Dr. John C.
Ogden, director of the Florida
Institute of Oceanography,
increased use of fertilizer and
heavy rains in the past two
years were responsible, for
increased run-off of polluted
waters into the Gulf of
Mexico. They triggered a
heavy growth of an aggressive
red tide organism, he said.
"While red tides have been
reported for centuries," he
said, "they are increasing in
frequency, duration and size
all over the world.
"In our region, red tides are
driven by pollution of near-


shore waters caused by exces-
sive nutrients from sewers,
agriculture and run-off from
streets, parking lots, lawns
and golf courses," Ogden
noted.
Dying waters
Stuart DeCew, who heads
the red tide campaign for the
Sierra Club in Florida, and
Capt. Wayne Genthner, a
charter fishing boat operator
and a diver, have been work-
ing with the Healthy Gulf
Coalition to make area resi-
dents aware of the problem,
and to do something about it
and the threat red tide and
coastal pollution pose to
Florida's $57 billion tourism
industry and the public's
health.
"Together," DeCew said,
"we can clean up our coasts,
and protect our health and
economy."
After observing a decline in
the water quality in the gulf
waters in which he fished,
Genthner dove to the bottom
in several areas, and discov-
ered a 2,500 square-mile
"dead zone" in 2005. The area,
about the size of Rhode
Island, was filled with dying
vegetation and dead fish.
Only after enlisting the
help of area news media was
Genthner able to get state and
regional officials to investi-
gate his discovery, and act on
it.
"The waters around
Sarasota that I cherish are
dying," said Don Chaney,
founder of the Healthy Gulf
Coalition. "Scientific uncer-
tainty concerning the exact


causes of red tide is no excuse
for community inaction. We
need to clean up the Gulf of
Mexico today, instead of
studying it to death tomor-
row."

RED-TIDE FORUM
The Sierra Club and
Healthy Gulf Coalition are
putting on a red tide and
coastal pollution program at
Woodmere Park Sept. 19 at 7
p.m.
Stuart DeCew, Sierra Club's
red-tide organizer for
Southwest Florida, and Capt.
Wayne Genthner, who discov-
ered the dead zone offshore,
will be featured. A question-
and-answer session will also
be conducted.
There will be a door prize
of a free fishing trip or eco-
tour provided by Genthner.


Airport closes for runway repairs


BY MARY APOSTOLU
STAFF WRITER

On Monday, the Venice air-
port will close at 7 a.m., and
will remain closed through-
out the week, with the expect-
ed reopening time to be
Saturday, Sept. 25. at 7 a.m.
The closing is necessary for
the paving of the intersection
of the runways.
City council recently
agreed to, a change order that
came about when work on
the rehabilitation of runway
13/31 got under way.
As the project com-
menced, workers found the
pipes underneath the asphalt
had all but crumbled. Thirty-
inch underground pipes and
geo-mat (moisture barrier)
were ordered to combat the
problem.
The added cost to the pro-
ject is nearly $381,000. The
contractor, APAC, is in the
process of working it out.


Concerns that the project
could be delayed and the
closing prolonged were met
by an addendum to the con-
tract providing for liquidated
damages if the project is
delayed beyond Saturday by
any avoidable, actions (other
than weather), the contractor
is liable up to $5,500 per day.
Other airport business
involves the status of the
application for a UNICON
frequency. Currently, the air-
port operates under a com-
mon traffic advisory frequen-
cy, which is used by a number
of airports and is not exclu-
sive to Venice. This is the
norm for airports without an
air traffic controllers tower.
"The traffic on that fre-
quency has increased dra-
matically, which is why we've
applied for a different FAA-
owned frequency," said
Airport Manager Fred Watts.
'The T-hangar project con-
tinues, as engineers have


begun assessing the structur-
al conditions of the buildings.
Although the wash rack
proposal was shot down for
this round of budget consid-
erations, the airport got near-
ly everything else on its wish
list.

MCC adopts capital budget plan

The short-term focus is on the Bradenton cam-
pus. Venice campus library and student center
renovations make the five-year capital improve-
ments list.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Now that Manatee
Community College has
nearly completed $3.4 million
in Venice campus renovations
to its parking lot and land-
scaping, it is setting its sights
on short-term improvements
at its Bradenton campus.
A five-year capital
improvement plan was
adopted at last month's meet-
ing by the district board of
trustees.
Anticipating substantial
enrollment growth (from
6,742 this year to a projected
7,132 in the 2011-12 school
year), the plan calls for $51
million in renovations,
remodel projects and new
construction. Funds will
come from the Florida Public
Education Capital Outlay
Trust Fund.
Bradenton improvements
Top priority for the current
school year is planning for
remodeling the Bradenton
campus music building. The
building, constructed in 1961,
has had minor improvements
over the years, say adminis-
trators, and doesn't meet ADA
accessibility requirements or
the needs of today's educa-
tional programs. HVAC sys-
tems are old and inefficient
and electrical systems are in
need of upgrading.
A 2002 engineering study
of the Bradenton campus
library found the building in
good shape, but said it had
"outlived its useful life in
terms of interior layout, inte-
rior finishes, and air condi-
tioning, electrical and tech-
nology systems."
"Bringing this facility into
the 21st Century is critical in
MCC's efforts to attract and
accommodate the needs of a
growing students popula-
tion," wrote authors of the
study.
Work also continues on
remodeling its graphic tech-
nology/arts building.
Projects for 2007-08 total
$5 million, including $2.5 mil-
lion in renovations projects
like roof and HVAC i system
repairs at all three campuses.
Another $2.5 million is ear-
marked for the Bradenton
music building and library
remodeling projects.
Also in the plan is a remod-
el of its 26-year-old gymnasi-
um. The capital improvement
plan earmarks $262,875 for
project planning in 2008-09
and $2.2 million for gym con-
struction costs in 2009-10.
Venice projects
Major remodel projects on
theVenice Campus, including
renovating its 16-year-old
library, begin in 2010-11.
The library renovation,
designed to address facility
issues caused by age and
years of inadequate
resources, say administrators,
is estimated to cost $5.3 mil-
lion.

Ongoing concerns voiced
by library staff and students.
about poor air quality and
inadequate lighting make this
a must-do for the college, said
David Wildes, MCC director
of facilities, in a written
report. Additional space will
be added for classrooms by
expanding the existing sec-
ond floor.
MCC previously used more
than $380,000 to replace an
inoperative fire alarm system
as wells a new metal roof for
the 36,000-square-foot
library.
The student services cen-
ter will be remodeled in 2011 -
12 at a projected cost of $2.6
million. The 16,332-square-
foot building was originally
used to house classrooms and
administrative offices, but
has changed over the years to
support student services, like
a cafeteria, lounge area,
counselors and security staff.
The college plans to redesign
the building's interior into a
more functional space.
In addition, the 28,000-
square-foot science building
needs to be replaced, say
administrators.
"This 20-year-old building
does not provide appropriate
teaching labs and prepara-
tion facilities," according to
budget documents. "More
and better labs are needed."
The project is estimated to
cost nearly $9 million with
construction beginning in
2011. It is scheduled to be
ready for occupancy begin-
ning with the 2012-13 school
year.
Administrators also plan
on moving the expanding
nursing program within the
same building.
"(It) will provide a synergy
between the two programs
and enhance the teaching
and learning, experience,"
W\ildes said. .,-.
MCC Venice, developed in
1985, has 17 buildings located
on 100 acres. It includes a 15-
acre lake, and 5 acres of
unbuildable swamp and
restricted swales and berms.
There are 32 acres remaining
for potential future develop-
ment, according to MCC doc-
uments.

Reinventing SCTI: An uncomfortable time


Career and technology offerings at Sarasota
County Technical Institute are undergoing
intense scrutiny.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


It's been a tough year for
educators at the Sarasota
County Technical Institute,
according to the school dis-
trict's career and technical
education consultant.
In a report released this
week, GMS Partners ---the
same consultant tapped ear-
lier this week by the superin-
tendent Gary Norris to lead
high school reforms docu-
mented the ongoing effort to
change the school's current
climate and program offer-
ings, which serve a large
number of South County stu-
dents.
"Intense scrutiny and the
hard work of researchers who
unrelentingly sought and
delivered data was impres-
sive," Grace Sammon,
founder of GMS Partners, told
school board members
Tuesday.
"It is an uncomfortable
time for that campus,"
Sammon said.
She applauded Bruce
Andersen, SCTI's director,
calling him sensitive and
graceful in the face of the
intense scrutiny.
"He is seeking to bring his.
faculty along in the process..b
to reinvent SCTI," she said.
GMS was brought in late in
2005 by Norris to review
career and technical educa-
tion throughout the district, a
priority of the school board.
SAt the onset GMS found
there wasn't a clearly articu-
lated common understand-'
ing of the vision for a
redesigned, SCTI, states
Sammon in the written
report.
GMS recommended that
the current course of acdon
- namely.creating a flexible
use of space to continue sim-
ilar teaching practices be
stopped, while a comprehen-
sive review was conducted.
Faced with little data on
who attended SCTI, which
programs were growing,
which were stagnant and
which were duplicated at
high schools, researchers
began collecting new data.
They came to some trou-
bling conclusions, one being


that there was no evidence of
course offerings or teacher
certifications to support the
county's main workforce
needs.
GMS wants to change that
based on research by the
Economic Development
Commission pointing to
workforce needs in the areas
of hospitality, tourism, real
estate (insurance), and spe-
cialty manufacturing.
"Sarasota County Public
Schools current courses and
teacher qualifications are not
able to meet even current
county needs," states the
report. "Over one-third of our
secondary career and techni-
cal education teachers are
certified in only one CTE area
(business technology educa-
tion)."
GMS is also concerned
about SCTI's clientele, pri-
marily adults. Last year the
school enrolled approximate-
ly 2,191 (full-time equivalent).
Only 318 were high school
students, including many low
performers. A significant por-
tion come from South
County.
g GMS would like to see
more students enter SCTI
prepared to tackle higher-
level learning, even if it
means beefing up remedial
offerings.
It also found a significant
majority of adult students
appear to be enrolled in non-
technical classes.
"Numbers for nontechni-
cal enrollments far exceed
those for SCTI technical pro-
grams," GMS researchers
noted.
Poised for success
Last year the school district
created the position of direc-
tor of career and technical
education To help lead the
district in a new direction.
Mellissa lorrow, CTE direc-
tor, and GMS consultants
formed a Reinvent SCTI
Committee 't6o pour over new
data.
Their first recommenda-
tion was to reassign some
existing SCTI offerings back
to area high schools.
They-also recommended
SCTI offerings include, at a
minimum, the areas of hospi-
tality, tourism and real estate


(including building trades
and insurance).
To infuse NeXt Generation
Learning into career educa-
tion, the committee invited
high school principals to sit
on the committee and
encouraged active participa-
tion by regional economic,
workforce and educational
planning bodies.
"The district's efforts have
seen significant progress,
however, implementation of
successful high school and
technical institute strategies
are still, in an early stage,"
Sammom said.
The next step, she said, is
to complete the program
review already begun, and
create a transparent budget
out of SCTI's convoluted
financial picture:
"Any decision regarding
program downsizing or relo-
cation will be hard-felt by
some, and supported by oth-
ers. Decisions regarding what
programs. remain, what is
best suited for comprehen-
sive high schools, what will be
included in the new high
school, and elimination of
certain programs need (to be)
moved forward," wrote
Sammon in the report.
"The assessment of this
consulting team is that
Sarasota County Public
Schools is poised for success.
It is at a tipping point. Now


the action plan and the
coaching of it must be final-
ized and marshaled."
South campus
School board member
Kathy Kleinlein pressed the
administration on Tuesday
about the status of a South
County career and technical
education campus.
She wants to make sure
plans to build a South County
CTE center coincide with
plans for the reinvented SCTI
in North County.
"I want them built at the
same time. That's what I've
been promised," she said.
Kleinlein said a school
similar to Phoenix Academy,
a Sarasota school for strug-
gling youth, was promised for
South County three years ago,
but never materialized. She
doesn't want to see a similar
outcome for the technical
centers.
School officials are cur-
rently looking at property
adjacent to MCC Venice as a
possible location for a South
County site.
Kleinlein said she antici-
pates an October workshop
on capital projects to clarify a
timeline and ensure the pro-
ject moves forward.

COURT-


allows the tiki hut to reopen
when it conceded the 1995
rezoning was more environ-
mentally protective than
provisions of the 1970 North
Casey Key Conservation
District.
A zoning official stipulated
before the board of zoning
appeals that the site's current
zoning is "more restrictive"
and "more protective of the
natural beauty, marine and
wildlife of the area" than the
North Casey Key Conser-
vation District.
The county commission
recently tried to head off a


court fight with Von Hut-
bertz over the tiki hut clo-
sure when it voted to have
lawyers examine the state-
approved conservation dis-
trict language and deter;-
mine whether it could bp
locally amended to resolve
the dispute.
But when the Casey Key
Association circulated a let-
ter that promised petitionh
drives" and "proactive legal
steps" if the county at-
tempted to either dissolve
or amend the state district
regulations, the county
commission retreated andi
allowed a legal challenge tp
unfold.


IAHNSONf ...P,. 1 A UU E- A"' '


Into journalism
"In 1985, we decided to
move to Sarasota, Fla.," said
Johnson. "When we divorced
a few years later, I moved to
Venice with my son, Giffe,'
who was still in high school.
We loved the small-town feel
of the community, and got a
house on the island, where
we could get just about every-
where either walking or on a
bicycle. It was really a great
place for Giffe to finish high
school.
"I had to get a job again,"
she said, "after being out of
the full-time work scene for
some 18 years. I began writ-
ing freelance articles for the
Venice Gondolibr. Actually, I
had thought all my life that I
might like to write, but never
really had the opportunity
before. It didn't take long
before I found out I loved it.
"Then they offered me the
position of Our Town editor,"
she said, "responsible for the
whole social and local events
section of the newspaper.
Fortunately, there were sever-
al people who were willing to
mentor me through that
process.
"With their help," she add-
ed, "I began winning prizes in
the state journalism competi-
tion. We got first place in the


Lifestyles and Social News
category three years in a row,
and second place the follow-
ing year. In 1994, my article
on the parents of local AIDS
victims won first place in the
Feature Story category. That
recognition was really one of
the high points of my career.
'After about three and a
half years," said Johnson, "I
was promoted to the position
of news editor for the front
section of the paper. For the
next nine months, I covered
all the news of local govern-
ment agencies, crime stories,
helped oversee production
layout and deadlines, and
filled in for the editor when he
was gone.
"It was during that time,"
she said, "that I spent a lot of
time covering meetings at city
hall, and interviewing City
Manager George Hunt. One
day he told me he wanted to
create a new position for pub-
lic information, and invited
me to apply.
To the city
"The idea was quite con-
troversial at the time," she
said. '"A lot of people felt it
would be a waste of time and
money to pay someone else
to do what city managers had
been doing up until then. The


city council approved the
position on a one-year trial
basis.
"Although it was a big risk
for me," she said, "I knew
there was a tremendous need
for better communications
between the city and its citi-
zens, and I felt confident that
I could handle the challenge.
"That first year was really
hard," she said, "from the
standpoint of having to face
constant criticism and oppo-
sition from those in the com-
munity who labeled me 'the
city propagandist,' and who
fought to have the job abol-
ished. I saved all of the letters
to the editor and Let'em Have
It comments to enjoy later,
because I-knew if I were given
the time, I could prove them
wrong. It's been more than 10
years now, and I am very
happy with what we've been
able to do during that time."
Back to journalism
Johnson's job requires a
variety of skills in communi-
cation, both verbal and writ-
ten. But the most time-con-
suming parts are still journal-
istic in nature.
"I'm often in my office
until around 6 p.m.," she said.
"That's when I can get the
most work done on the


newsletters and other writing
projects. We put out a quar-
terly citizens newsletter, a
monthly employee newslet-
ter and an annual citizens
guide listing all the city ser-
vices and contact numbers.
This past year, we varied from
that somewhat to publish the
guide in a calendar format.
"I also edit the city's Web
site (venicegov.com)," she
said. We find that more and
more people are accessing
the information they need
directly from that source.
"Periodically," she added,
"we publish a variety of infor-
mational pamphlets about
subjects of interest to the
public. Stormwater, utility
billing, recycling those are
just a few, and we are always
openTor suggestions of topics
about which citizens would
like clarification or more
information. The pamphlets
and other printed materials
are available in the lobby of
city hall or through my office.
"We have a magnificent
corps of volunteers," said
Johnson. "Nearly 30 people.
spend three days every quar-
ter labeling 8,000 newsletters
for mailing. We couldn't get it
done without them."
Continued excitement


"I really love my job with
the city," Johnson said. "Writ-
ing is fun for me, and there is
just so much variety from day
to day. The challenge is just
keeping up with all the things
that are happening.
"My pager occasionally
goes off in the middle of the
night," she said, "and I will
respond to a fire, a storm
event, or an airplane crash. I
also get a lot of calls from the
public requesting assistance,
but I've always been a prob-
lem solver. Most of the time
we are able to find resolu-
tions, but there are times
when I have to explain why
we are unable to respond as
they had hoped.
"The hardest part of the
job," she said, "is doing the TV
program each month. I don't
like seeing myself on TV so I
get nervous each time we
begin taping.
"The program is called
'Venice Views,' she explain-
ed, "and it airs on Comcast
Channel 21 twice every
Wednesday, at 3 p.m. and at
6:30 p.m. I interview different
people each month city
employees, elected officials,
appointed board members
and other community lead-
ers. During the month of
September, we're running an


interview with new Police
Chief Julie Williams.
'After having worked daily
with all the council and board
members," she said, "I really
appreciate those who are will-
ing to put themselves forward
for such time consuming,
hard work on behalf of their
community.
"Small-town politics is sb
much different from politics
on the state and national
level," she said, "mainly be-
cause these people are your
next-door neighbors, the
folks you go to church with,
the people you run into at the
grocery store. You can really
get to know them, and let
them know how you feel
about the issues.
"Working with City Man-
ager Marty Black has also
been really interesting," slhe
said.
"He is all about communi-
cation and openness in gov-
ernment, and is very ener-
getic. He's always leading the
organization to higher levels,
and creating opportunities
for employees to grow in their
jobs.
"I couldn't ask for a job
with more variety and excite-
ment," she said. "I never
know what to expect from
day to day, and I love it."

OUR VIEW




Charter battle score: County 1, Cities 0


Cynics may call the Sarasota County
commissioners' plan to gain control,
over annexation of rural county land a
clever charade.
Those who vigorously support the results
will argue it was a brilliant strategy.
If the county commissioners' actions were
actually as pure as Florida sunshine, their
plan clearly worked.
For the first time in history commission-
ers will have a seat at the table when annexa-
tion decisions are made in North Port and
Venice.
Teddy Roosevelt said the best way to win
an argument was to "Speak softly and carry a
big stick." Sarasota officials proved the for-
mer president was right.
The big stick that gently beat Venice and
North Port officials into submission was the
county's threat to amend the county charter
through a countywide referendum.
James Ley, the county administrator, a


clever strategist, even produced a poll that he
said warned the cities they would lose the
vote 70 percent to 30 percent.
That poll alone was enough to frighten
North Port and Venice officials into creating a
compromise that fully favored the county.
City officials failed to follow up with a poll
of their own and so they apparently were
trembling at the prospect of the proposed
charter change.
Venice took the lead and North Port fol-
lowed. Both cities agreed to sit down with the
county between now and mid-January to
hammer out a plan that eliminates their
authority to annex land without county
interference.
The county won the brief war without
having to fire a single shot in anger.
All knew the county had the upper hand
when the Fifth District Court of Appeal ruled
in favor of Seminole County in a similar dis-
pute with the city of Winter Springs.


The court concluded the county could Monday morning, after the cities surrender

until the county commissioners meet again to "just let it happen."


The growth credo


BOB VEDDER
iS3JS0 :R


It is good to see that the
city and county, have agreed
i to tryoito finally-osettle tle
, issues of how growth is going
to, take place and who is re-
sponsible for what.
Maybe Venice will stop
annexing toward Sarasota; it
makes no logical connective
sense at all.
When we interview candi-
dates for county commission
or city council, the issue of
growth always comes up. We
always ask ,some general
question about the person's
philosophy toward growth,
and the usual response con-
tains one of two catch phras-
es that must come from the
"How to Get Elected" training
manual. Those are: "I believe
in controlled growth," and "I
believe in smart growth."
We often ask for just a little.
explanation, which usually
goes something like, "We
know there is going to be
growth; we can't stop it, but
we want it to be responsible."
They may even say they don't
want it to exceed the infra-
structure.
It is with all of this in mind
that I found a recent action of
Venice City Council rather
curious.
The planning commission
was faced with an application
to change the zoning for a
parcel from one-five dwell-
ings per acre to five-13. It
looked, at all the plots around
the affected property that
were designated one-five and
decided that the applicant's
parcel should carry the same
designation.
The developer was not
happy with the outcome and
went to city council. The
members the same ones
who espouse controlled
growth unanimously over-
turned the planning commis-
sion and granted the change
to five-13 units per acre. The
developer promised them he
was only interested in eight
units, not the 13 he would be
allowed.
Of course, council has
every right to do what it did
because the planning com-
mission is only an advisory
group. We wouldn't want
council to rubber stamp
every single decision. Yet from
my standpoint there seems to
be nothing wrong at all with
the logic of the planning com-


mission. I thought this action
was quite a bit "in your face."
There are other properties
council is considering allow-
ing seven- and -eight-story
buildings. I will be interested
to find out how this is consid-
ered controlled growth. I
guess we need to be more
specific in our questioning of
what candidates consider
"controlled."
While many roads do not
meet concurrency and others
are quickly headed there, that
does not stop development.
We say we don't want to build
, here \we don't ha e.,th, roads
to handle it, but then do it
anyway.
I am glad the cities' and
county will try to bring order
to this process.

By's Crack: If you ques-
tion games of chance,
what do you call those
annual elections we have
to choose our chamber of
commerce officers?

I think the forces that pro-
mote a new Reds stadium use
new math to figure how much
money the Reds bring to our
county.
It all seems so logical.
There are 90,000-plus paid
tickets to games. Of those
people, 60 percent are visitors
who on average spend 10
days and each spend $70 a
day. That math gets us to

e need federal medical agency


We need a federal medical agency


Editor:
Your recent editorial, Should doctors get performance
bonuses?, makes the point there hasn't been a "big new idea" in
the field of improving quality of care in medicine in more than'
a decade.
One of the reasons for the absence of ideas, as the editorial
points out, is the seeming paradox that improving quality of
care often results in diminished financial returns for doctors
and hospitals. It is simply not in the best financial interests of
doctors and hospitals, in many cases, to improve quality of
care, as difficult as that may be to believe, and financial inter-
ests trump the interests of patients tar more often than most of
us know.
Another reason no big new ideas for improving medical care
have surfaced is the medical establishment wants no part of
the ideas that would work. Those ideas often have to do with
major changes that don't thrill the medical establishment, like
the appointment of a federal authority to oversee medicine,
the way the FAA now oversees airlines, for example.
Flying wasn't always safe, but safety improved dramatically
when the FAA, a federal authority with the responsibility and
the authority to make things safer for passengers, took over.
Medical safety, which is administered by numberless local
authorities, remains quietly but scandalously bad.
A central medical authority is only one very obvious idea
that would protect patients. There are many more ideas that
are quite as apparent, and others that are less so. To present
them requires a book. I'm looking for a publisher.

Where are the
JFK Democrats?

Editor:
It is amazing how many
people are living in a fog, and
they live right here in Florida.
After the fall of the World
Trade Center our president
stated that we would fight the
terrorist wherever they might
be. Terrorists were training in
Iraq and Saddam was paying
the families of terrorists who
blew themselves up. No


provocation?
We have been safer since
Sept. 11, and you can thank
President George W Bush, his
administration and all our
brave military for that. Did it
ever occur to you that we
haven't been attacked since
then just because they are
doing things right?
Iraq is better today. They
have water, electricity,
schools and they don't have
Saddam. Baghdad is bad, but
our military and the Iraqis are


working on it. We have found
500 mustard sarin canisters
and the rest is probably in
Saudi Arabia.
Our military is made up of
heroes, and they know what
they are doing. Even one
death is tragic; however, just
the 36-day battle of Iwo Jima
lost us 6,800 military. In 2005
we lost 43,443 lives in traffic
accidents.
The Democrats' plan of
action is criticizing Bush and
cutting and running. Seems
to me the Democrats didn't
know when they had a good
thing; we shall watch the
Connecticut race closely.
What happened to the
President Kennedy's Demo-
crats who believed, "The
United States will pay any
price, bear any burden and go
anywhere in the defense of
liberty?"

Holder's her man
Editor:
Your newspaper claims
that Doug Holder won his pri-
mary only because he out-
spent his opponents. That's
odd, because I thought he
won by coming to my neigh-
borhood, standing on the
corner waving signs every
morning, being at the An-
derson building when I went
to vote early and basically
getting to know the voters.
Strange also that I saw him
at a number of candidate
events as well, in which I


thought he did a great job.
He earned my vote then
and he has earned it for the
general election as well.

Time to do something
about DST
Editor:
Leap forward, fall back.
However you look at it, it is
not nice to mess with Mother
Nature.
Actually, Ben got it back-
wards. In the summer, the
daylight lasts longer (as
opposed to the day being
longer), so we do not need
Daylight Saving Time. In the
winter we have less daylight
(as opposed to shorter days),
so then, DST would be nice.
I propose that instead of
falling back next month, we
leave our clocks and watches
the way they are and never
change them again. DST does
not give us art extra hour of
daylight. The days still consist
of 24 hours. It is all smoke and
mirrors. We rob Peter to pay
Paul. Then we taketh away
what we giveth.
I for one hate going around
the house twice a year and
changing all the- chrono-
graphs. It is time to leave time
alone.

ington, D.C. I am Tom Stevens

LET 'EM HAVE IT! DO YOUR PROPERTY TAX AND INSURANCE BILLS

HAVE YOU THINKING ABOUT LEAVING VENICE? CALL US AT 207-1111.


A bright idea too bright


Bad bulb. I have a comment about corporate-induced road
rage the cobalt blue headlights that they're putting in some
cars these days. You know, the ones that resemble a welding
torch in your eye in the middle of the night. My opinion is that
they need to be recalled and changed into regular halogen
headlights, especially on the gas-guzzling SUVs. It's not only
obnoxious but just down right dangerous, especially when we
have some of the craziest people driving in Florida passing on
the right, going well over the speed limit and just causing havoc
on the road. Foreign or domestic, I think they need to be
recalled and turned back into regular, bright halogen lights.
None of this cobalt blue welding-torch light.


White flag. Congratula-
tions State Farm! Congratula-
tions state regulators! You
have won, and finally man-
aged to drive us out of our
home. My wife and I have
scrimped and saved our
whole lives to be able to move
to Florida on retirement and
buy our little piece- of par-
adise. Our dream came true
for us five years ago, when we
moved to Venice. We have had
State Farm insurance for 40
years never missed a pay-
ment or made a claim. Over
the .last five years, they have
seen fit to raise our home-
owners premiums by 1,000
percent. The most recent pre-
mium now raises our insur-
ance by an additional 177 per-
cent, which is four times more
than my annual pension
increase. I called our agent,
and I am told that I should be
happy with the 177 percent
increase because it could
have been raised by 215 per-
cent. I do not know if this is in
violation of the law; however,
I remember a couple years
ago when State Farm increas-
ed our auto insurance premi-
um by 70-some percent, and
shortly thereafter we received
a refund check with a letter of
explanation saying the state
regulators would not allow
such a massive increase at
one time. One would think
that these regulators would
use the same logic when deal-
ing-.it 'pqdple'\,rpo. cgler-,
ished-, possession heir


home. What hurts even more
than having to leave our home,
is seeing our friends and neigh-
bors with homes of greater size
and value than ours receiving
$200-$300 increases on their
homeowners insurance com-
pared to the $2,700 premium
increase, we have just received.
Is there something wrong with
this picture? To all of you so-
called "regulators" and people
from State Farm who are
responsible for this, let me say
that one day you too will
become senior citizens, some
of you even will be on a fixed
income trying to survive. I pray
that you are put into the same
situation that you are doing to
us so that you will discover first-
hand what it feels like to have to
leave the place you love, and
pick up and start your life over
again at age 70. Thank you
Venice for allowing us a short
five years of enjoyment in your
town.
Better hands than guns. I
had to make a comment on
one of the national news
shows. They were talking
about terrorism and war play-.


ing a major part in the up-
coming elections. Then, I see
on TV that there are certain
people up for votes that are
using gay issues as leverage. I'm
not gay, but personally I'd
rather see two men holding
hands or two women holding
hands than two men or two
women carrying guns and
killing innocent civilians. I
think the politicians ought to
get in line and stop worrying
about the gay card and pay
attention to protecting our
country and protecting our
borders and keep an eye out for
the Iranians who are stirring up
a lot of troublewith the nuclear
bombs that they're working on.
You've got to keep an eye on
them. I don't think that two
men holding hands is anything
we need to be worrying about
right now.
Not true blue. I'm calling
about the two water towers on
the island of Venice. There was
some discussion some years
ago about their being painted
'blue. I frankly think it was a
beautiful color; however, that
color is now fading old age I
guess and I would like to see
them repainted the same color
as before because it was a
beautiful, beautiful color.
Thanks. Earlier this week
an anonymous person drop-
ped off some beach toys for
my kids, and since I don't
know who it is, I was calling to
thank them for that. I have
faith in this little, town, Ive
lived here my entire life and
I'll live here the rest of my life.

more than $37 million.
I think the missing piece of
the equation may be what
percent of the visitors are here
because of the Reds. My guess
is it might be 5 percent the
others are here for the beach-
es, the arts, friends, the
weather, relatives, the great
shopping, the golf courses
and more. They go to one,
maybe two spring training
games.
If my guess is right that
makes the economic impact
about $2 million. Of course,
the Reds themselves spend $5
million, so it does have an
impact, but nothing like
what's touted.
Is there a good return on
the investment? I guess it
depends how much the locals
want that entertainment and
don't mind the visitors paying
for it.

The Venice High School
girls volleyball team is incred-
ible. They demolished the
Charlotte High girls, who
were ranked No. 4 in the state.
They play again Tuesday at
home at 7 p.m.

Sue and I became grand-
parents once again, this time
a boy (joining two girls).
Charles Cronin Vedder was
born to our son Todd and
wife, Beth. Todd is a pediatri-
cian in Naples. Seems like he
is trying to build his practice.

Habitat for Humanity is
fixing up its store for new and
slightly used furniture, appli-
ances, lumber, paint, fixtures
and hardware.
The Restore Home Store is
located on Ogden Road just a
block north of Caldwell Trust
off Center Road. It doesn't
open until Nov. 2, and right
now they are looking for
things to sell in the store,
which h will support the Hab-
itat operation in Venice, Eng-
lew\ood and North Port.
They already have some
great stuff, from nice furni-
ture to refrigerators and ap-
pliances. They'll have lots of
building materials. They will
not be handling clothes or


soft goods. If you have some-
thing that they might sell
(must be near new or excel-
lent condition), please call the
office at 493- 6606.
They are going to have a
painting party Saturday, Sept.
23. Show up in your painting
clothes at 8 a.m. and help fin-
ish the second half of the
huge center. They will have
some food and drinks to keep
you going.
They may be able to use a
truck and driver to help move
stuff around until they get
one.

Today's Ism: As Groucho
Marx once said, "I've had a
wonderful evening. But this
wasn't it."

The new trail from Venice
to Sarasota has really grown
over. Not sure they figured on
maintaining that. The
Venetian Waterway Trail is
also very overgrown, maybe
because of all the rain. Of
course, maintenance would
help.

I. got a call from a candi-
date, who told me there is a
fine for signs left up more
than 21 days after a primary
or general election. I am curi-
ous if anyone has ever been
fined.

You might want to come by
the Venetian Waterway Trail
to see the progress on the
painted mural on the back of
our Print Center. Colleen
Henry has finished quite a bit
more of it, including an air-
plane and train, all part of our
city's history.

Congrats to the city elected
officials who went unop-
posed. They obviously are
doing .good work or they
would have opposition. Ac-
tually two of them, Fred
Hammett and Jim Woods, I
like to kid as having never
been elected.

If you'd like to help out on
the 23rd, instead of working
on the Habitat paint project
there is the Laurel cormmuni-
tV anntul cleah-iup. '.crtill to
he' Laurel Ci\ic Association,


483-3338, would give more
details.

Three big events take place
on Thursday.
One is the 50th anniver-
sary dinner for the Venice
Board of Realtors. The sec-
ond is the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce
installation banquet. Mick
Gardner and I will be emcee-
ing that event as the chamber
enshrines Jim Clinch as its
titular head, sort of like a king.
The third is the 30th
anniversary celebration for
the Crow's Nest. What an
incredible job Steve and Janis
Harner have done with that
property and for our commu-
nity.

It didn't take long for our
birthday boy, Kelley Cor-
bridge, after he arrived in
Sarasota to get involved in our
communities.
He worked for 20 years in
banking and is now a partner
in Bechtold & Corbridge PA
He has been very active in
organizations such as All
Faiths Food Bank, Take Stock
in Children, Big Brothers Big
Sisters, Sertoma and the
Community Foundation of
Sarasota County.

Doors to airfield


can't be locked


BYTOMMYMCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


Glass doors in the rear of
the old Huffman Aviation
building leading onto the
Venice airport ramp where
planes and fuel trucks sit -
must remain unlocked.
Why? They are fire exits.
"It's a tough situation -
how do you secure a door that
is a fire exit?" said Venice Jet
Center (formerly Triple Di-
amond Jet Center) Oper-
ations Director Roger Jern-
igan. "Our plans are that that
building will be renovated
next year and we hope to
have that problem (fire exit)
fixed."
The VJC owns the building.
The building will become
the new headquarters of the
VJC, which is presently locat-
,'ed a few doors down on air-

Jernigan said more signs
have been put up warning
people that access to the field
is for authorized personnel
only.
Airport Manager Fred
Watts also is aware of the VJC
problem along with other
security issues.
"We are meeting with ten-
ants," he said, "and are mak-
ing efforts to address various
(security) situations."
Watts would not comment
further on airport security
measures.
Former Huffman CEO
Rudi Dekkers said he recently
walked through the unlocked
glass doors and onto the field
unchallenged.
"Maybe it's because they
recognized me," Dekkers
said. "You can walk onto the
field through the side door of
""the cafe-; to."
However, it is less likely
that a stranger could get field
access through the tiny cafe,
because most customers are
recognizable airport person-
nel, police officers and
a few locals.
The building's only tenants'
are the Cockpit Cafe and
Hertz Rent-a-Car.
The airport is patrolled
daily (and nightly) by Venice
police.

SCAT service set

Sarasota County Area
Transit invites the public to
the first of two meetings to
introduce proposed plans to
enhance the bus service in
and around Venice.
The meeting is 3:30-7 p.m.
Wednesday, Sept. 20, in the
Community Room of Venice
City Hall, 401 W. Venice Ave.
At this meeting SCAT offi-
cials will seek input from resi-
dents about the proposed
new service and possible
routes. A second meeting will
be scheduled at a later date to
inform the community about
the exact route of the new ser-
vice prior to implementation.
SCAT plans to initiate a
fixed-route neighborhood
bus service for South Venice,
Venice Gardens and the is-
land of Venice. The proposed
neighborhood bus routes will
connect island residents to
key locations, including the
Venice Train Depot, Jaca-
randa Plaza. Venice Shopping
'Center, Senior Friendship
Center, Wal-Mart and the
Venice Regional Medical Cen-
ter.
The new neighborhood
transit service will replace the
current curb-to-curb service
known as SCAT About, which
is an on-demand service only
offered on the island of Ven-
ice., SCAT About will continue
until the new neighborhood
service begins.
The neighborhood buses


will augment the current
island of Venice service area
now covered by Route 13 (V-
Route). County staff mem-
bers are currently reviewing
the pickup locations and trips
of regular SCAT About users
to locate the bus stops for the
hew island service.
Many transit riders using
SCAT About are eligible for
paratransit service known as
SCAT Plus. More information
about SCAT Plus will be avail-
able at the meeting and eligi-
ble people will be signed up.
For more information, call

Bus Service.

Indians lay goose egg against Charlotte


Turnovers, penalties plague Indians in Punta
Gorda slop.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice High football
team picked a bad time to lay
an egg.
The Indians could hardly
do anything right in their
biggest game of the season
Friday night in Punta Gorda.
It added up to an uninspired
17-0 loss to Charlotte High.
Not only does Venice fall to
0-4 overall, but more impor-
tantly, the Indians are 0-1 in
Class 5A District 11.
With only a few chances in
district, you have to make the
most of every opportunity.
Take nothing away from
Charlotte (3-1, 1-0). The
Tarpons played scrappy foot-
ball and did what they had to.
On the other hand, Venice
simply didn't play well. It was
like Murphy's Law just
one of those nights that was-
n't meant to be.
Venice shot itself in both
feet with four turnovers -
three fumbles and an inter-
ception.
"It wasn't a very good dis-
play of football," said Indian
coach Nick Coleman. "We
could never get anything
going offensively. Turnovers
and penalties cost us. You
gotta make the plays and we
didn't."
For one, it poured buckets
in Punta Gorda late Friday
afternoon. The very soggy,
sloppy field seemed to work
in favor of the Tarpons.
"It had a lot to do with it,"
,,iS.s CQ9eman of the condi-
"ffii begging down his team.7
"They had to play on the
same field."
Venice didn't even produce
100 yards total offense. Jimmy
Laurie rushed for 36 yards
and Al Mitchell for 34 yards.
There were only seven, first
downs all night. The deepest
the Indians got in Charlotte
territory was the 29-yard line.
That came in the third quar-
ter with Venice already trail-
ing 17 zip. An interception
ended that drive.
The first half was 'played
close to the vest. While the
Venice "0" didn't go, at least
punter Rob Huhn pinned in
Charlotte with two fine boots
going out of bounds at the 4
and 6 yard lines.


Charlotte dug itself out of
the bad field position the sec-
ond time, starting at its own 6
and driving to paydirt.
The drive didn't unfold
without controversy, as
Venice was whistled four
times for 37 yards. The flag
that hurt the most was a
shady 25-yard pass interfer-
ence call that put the ball on
the Indian 45.
Charlotte came up two big,
back-to-back plays that broke
the Indians backs. The first
was a 31-yard pass from quar-
terback Matt Kautz to favorite
receiver Sean Cord. Then run-
ning back Kyle Provencal
busted a gut to the 4-yard
line. Kautz scored on a two-
yard run. The extra point was
good, and Charlotte had a 7-0
lead with 1:47 left before half-
time.
Venice was down, but had
to still feel life. The Indians
would receive the second half
kickoff and go to work.
That never happened,
however, as the second half
pooch kick was muffed and
Charlotte recovered at the
Indians 35.
The Tarpons were charged
as the momentum was
zapped from the Venice side-
lines.
Charlotte scored its second
TD five plays later. The scor-
ing play was a 20-yard scram-
ble by Kautz. The extra point
again good, and the 14-0 lead
loomed large for Charlotte
considering the way Venice
was playing.
.The Indians got. a first
down on a run by Laurie,-butr
before they could establish
any momentum, a fumble by
quarterback Gerry Hunek put
Charlotte in business at its
own 48. The Tarpons drove to
the Indian 6 before facing a
fourth and five. Coach Binky
Waldrop decided to go for a
field goal. Masters delivered
with a 23-yarder to make it
17-0 late in'the third quarter.
Venice wasn't done yet.
Kyle Callahan replaced
Hunek at quarterback and
threw an interception. Venice
fumbled the ball away again
on its final possession in the
fourth quarter.
Although disappointed,
Coleman will never fold up
the tent.

"We have to go to Booker,"
Coleman said. "We'll regroup
and circle the wagons."
The next district game for
Venice is Sept. 29 at home
against Manatee. Game faces
will be a must for the Indians.

Britton, Thomas top VHS runners at Lemon Bay


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Team-wise, Venice High's
girls cross country team fin-
ished in the bottom half of the
11 schools running in
Saturday's Lemon Bay
Invitational.
But considering that the
Lady Indians were missing
one runner because of sick-
ness and two others because
of ACT testing, the girls that
participated in the meet held
at LA Ainger Middle School
did just fine.
The Lady Indians were
sixth in team points, just
missing out on fifth by two
points. Lakewood Ranch was
the winner with Manatee sec-
ond, North Port third and
host Lemon Bay fourth.
Lemon Bay's Mason
Gardberg won the girls race,
covering the 3-mile course in
21 minutes, 51 seconds.
Venice had two top 10 fin-
ishes. Sarah Britton and Kim
Pinkerton each ran personal
bests. Britton was seventh in
23:14. Pinkerton was 10th in
23:30.
"It was hot and long,"
Britton said. "There was no
shade. The grass was wet."
Venice would have had
another top 10 finish if


Chelsea Rose was healthy. She
missed the meet because of
illness.
Speaking of ailing, Erin
McCullough ran with a stitch

The top Venice boy was
Ben Thomas, who took fifth
place in 18:03. Sean Elkins
was 21st and Tony Miller fin-
ished strong for 22nd. Travis
Carter was 37th.
Max Brandow ran his first
race of the season and was in
line for a decent finish before
he had to stop and vomit with
200 meters to go.
"Twenty runners passed
him," said boys coach Jason
Potter. "We're coming along.
We're working hard. Our
times will get better."

Local $3 fee on traffic citations now paying for driver education


Sarasota County rejected a chance to participate
because of the administrative costs. It finally
relented laMt year and about 100 students learned
to drive over the summer.


decided the benefits of driver
education far outweighed the
cost of collecting and allocat-
ing money to qualifying
schools, the Sarasota County
Commission finally climbed
on board last Dec. 14.
As a result, Court Clerk
Karen Rushing was directed


to start collecting the addi-
tional $3 on every moving
violation on Jan. 1, and about
$60,000 was disbursed to the
four high schools for classes
that became available during
the summer.
Both public and private
schools are eligible to apply


for the money, but so far only
public schools have chosen to
participate. Private schools
that want to join would have
to fund regular classes during
the school year to become eli-
gible for the supplementary
funds.
"That's sort of a Catch-22


for private schools that don't
have driver education pro-
grams," Schulz said. "If one of
them wants this money it has
to build a program from
scratch. The Slosberg Act isn't
designed to replace driver
education. It's there to
enhance it."


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

Driver education classes
for teenagers make so much
common sense it's hard to
Believe local officials would
pass up a chance to help fund
&hem, but that's exactly what
sarasota County did for two
Sears while other communi-
ies through Florida eagerly
participated.
' Finally, as the result of a
belated county commission
decision late last year, about
100 young drivers received
training over this summer in
classes paid for by a $3 fee
tacked onto local traffic cita-
tions and allocated to the
public school system.
"Four classes were filled
with between 20 and 30 stu-
'dents at North Port,
:Riverview, Sarasota and
Venice high schools," said
Criminal Justice Policy
:Coordinator James Schulz.
"That's about 100 kids who
wouldn't have received train-
:ing without the money."
: On Tuesday, the county
'commission unanimously
!finalized its decision to per-
manently impose the local
:option $3 fee on traffic tickets
,and raise an estimated
!$200,000 each year for driver
training classes.
"We estimate the fee will
raise annually $200,000
'beginning in fiscal year 2007
which begins on Oct. 1,"
Schulz told the commission.
'The money will be made
.available to any school, pub-
lic or private, that has a driver
education program in place."
Strai totstm h0- "r-1n idl d .'c ?9
In 2002,, state lawmakers
passed the Dori Slosberg
-Driver Education Safety Act
and gave all 67 counties the
option of increasing civil traf-
ific fines by $3 to supplement
school driving education pro-
,grams. More than 50 counties
agreed to participate after
:Sarasota County deferred.
The local option revenue-
,raising measure was named
,after the 14-year-old daugh-
:ter of Florida State Rep. Irving
:Slosberg, D-Boca Raton, who
-was killed in a car crash with a
teenage driver. Prior to the
.act's passage, very few school
,systems provided summer
;driver education classes.
As Schulz explained, there
Iare strings attached to the
,money. Schools must have
,funded driver education pro-
,grams in place to qualify for
,the supplementary revenue,
,and local agencies that collect
:the $3 fee cannot be reim-
,bursed administrative costs
,for processing it.
:Outweighed
: In 2002, when county
commissioners initially
:looked at the possibly of
:imposing a $3 fee for driver
,education, administrators
complained the cost of col-
,lecting and disbursing the
:money was another state
,mandate being forced on
:local governments.
But after more than 50
other county commissions

Stingrays have a natural
defense mechanism
that can be painful or
even deadly to humans.

BY COURTNEYLINN
STAFF WRITER
Lately, stingrays have been
getting a bad rap.
The Sept. 4 death of TV
naturalist "Crocodile Hunter"
Steve Irwin added to it.
But when you take a closer
look at the stingray species,
they are simply like any other
animal that will defend itself if
it is frightened or feels threat-
ened.
Sarasota County has its
share of stingrays. Our beach-
es are filled with these grace-
ful creatures, which have
been grossly misunderstood
for years.
Sarasota waters harbor
four types of stingray: cow-
nose, Atlantic, yellow and
southern. Each one is differ-
ent in its behavior and habits.
At Mote Marine Laboratory
and Aquarium on Long Boat
Key, you can experience these
creatures that glide through
the water, like a hanglider
floats through the sky.
In one of Mote's touch
tanks, you can get a sense of a
stingray firsthand. Inside the
tank are cownose, Atlantic
and yellow rays. Their barbs
have' been removed, and
Mote permits visitors to touch
the rays. Touching the rays is
an enjoyable experience.
Many of the rays are quite
receptive to being touched,
particularly the cownose ray.
On a touch of my hand, the
ray arched itself into my
touch, like a cat that desires to
be petted. The rays circle
round and extend their fins
out of the water to human
hands, waiting to be touched.
If the stingrays at Mote are
so gentle, and maybe even
affectionate, why have sting-
rays been feared for many
years? It is the barb that fright-
ens most, as it should. How-
ever, the stingray's barb is not
something to actively fear; it is
something that should be
respected.
Mote's expert
Dr. Carl Luer is a senior sci-
entist at Mote, and has
worked there for 27 years. His
area of expertise includes
skates, sharks and rays.


A stingray glides through the water in the touch tank at Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota.


"I have been studying their
immune systems," Luer said.
According to Luer, sting-
rays do not pose a threat to
Florida's beachgoers. Most
rays, in fact, are quite docile
and will flee if approached.
Most stingrays bury them-
selves in the sand in the water
as a defense mechanism. It is
the juveniles that most peo-
ple come in contact with in
our waters, not adults.
"The adult rays live, further
out," Luer said.
Adult rays usually will give
birth to pups in late spring,
early summer. Then, when
the pups reach a juvenile
stage, they migrate to the surf


areas of waters, where their
primary food lives. Juvenile,
rays eat small crustaceans,,
sand fleas and worms.
Luer encourages people to,
shuffle their feet in the sand
while in the water. This action
will cause the tip of a bather's
foot to tap the ray, which
might be buried in his or her
pathway. If a person merely
taps the ray, usually the ray
will become frightened arid
flee. Only when startled or
"threatened" might they be
dangerous.
Cownose stingrays are dif-
ferent from other stingrays
because they live in herds of
hundreds to the thousands.


They will swim right past peo-
ple in the water.
"If a cownose stingray
swims past someone in the
water, the best thing to do is
let it pass and not touch it,"
Luer said.
A person may get hit by the
barb if he or she grabs the ray.
According to Luer, when a ray
approaches, a person who
stops moving and admires
the beauty of the ray will
more than likely be left alone.
It is when a person steps
on top of a stingray that an
involuntary, predatory re-
sponse will take place. The
stingray's barb will erect itself,
stabbing whatever might


have come in its path.
"From what we can tell,
this is what happened to Ir-
win," Luer said. Irwin was
above the ray when it punc-
tured his chest, entering Ir-
win's heart as he swam above
the creature while diving off
the coast of Northeast Aus-
tralia.
The barb
The stingray's barb, or
spine, is intricate in its design.
It is serrated like a knife. The
insertion of the barb is
smooth. However, when the
barb is removed venom and
pieces of the serrated edge are
often left inside the object

that was punctured. Ac-
cording to Luer, the pieces
will not always show up on X-
rays.
The barb is not like a sting-
er on a bee. If the stingray hits
something, the barb may
break off, but the stingray will
not die. However, the barbs
will regenerate themselves
after about a year, and they
are always proportionate to
the size of the stingray.
What to do
Luer said that if someone
is hit by a stingray, that per-
son should seek medical

Wildlife artist at Arts Council Gallery


STAFF REPORT
The Venice High School
Class of 1961 has finalized
plans for its 45th reunion.
The activities will kick off
with a get-together at the
Venice Community Center
on Nov. 3, and will continue
with a dinner-dance at the
Venice Yacht Club on the
4th, and a brunch at the
home of a classmate on the
5th.
"This is our seventh re-
union, and we expect a very
good turnout," said Ellen
Pedersen Collard, one of the
reunion organizers. "We
know that a lot of classmates
are coming from out of town,
and we know there will be
some people that haven't
tenr, to -any of., tke pnegous

reunions. Many of us have
gotten together regularly, and
we have a great time together.
It's a very welcome bonus
when classmates who have
never come to a reunion join
the party."
"It's a challenge to keep
track of people," said Carol
Adamson Pearson, another
organizer of the reunion.
"There were 107 in our class
and we've sent the notice to
most, but we haven't been
able to locate about 15 per-
cent of our classmates. Some
have moved in the last five
years, and there are a few
that we haven't had contact
information on since grad-
uation. If friends or relatives
in the area can offer any as-
sistance in locating people
Iwho graduated from VHS in


1961, we'd sure appreciate
their help."
The current list of missing
classmates includes: John
Bailey, Carol Bradley Meyer,
Claire Bradshaw Hatcher,
Severin Breding, Jeanne
Carlson, Sharon Dinero Rex,
Roy Downing, Lalya Fagan
Neil, Sharon Fearns, Fred
Holstrom, Janice Landry,
George Lane, Judy Martin,
Diane McClain Adams, David
Merry, Ronald Ralston and
Laura Snyder.

Acrylic painting by Ben Essenburg from his exhibit, "The REAL Florida," at the Manatee Arts
Council Gallery, 926 12th St., W., Village of the Arts, Bradenton. The exhibit runs through
Sept. 28.


Ben W. Essenburg is the
featured artist at the Manatee
County Arts Council Gallery
for September. As the title
of his exhibit, "The REAL
Florida," indicates, his acrylic
paintings are realistic por-
trayals of Florida wildlife
and landscapes. Most of his
intricately detailed images
show every blade of saw-
grass and every feather on
the woodstork, combining
to show a complete South
Florida ecosystem on one
canvas. Various sizes of lim-
ited edition prints of his
work will be available at the
gallery.


Essenburg was born in
Oak Park, Ill., and received a
bachelor's of arts degree in
English literature from Calvin
College in Grand Rapids,
Mich. He moved to South
Florida in 1970 and lives in
Englewood. A self-taught
artist, Essenburg has been
painting and exhibiting pro-
fessionally since 1975, and
has participated in nearly
every major art festival in
Florida, receiving numerous
awards. His work is included
in private and corporate col-
lections throughout the
world, and has been feat-
ured in a number of maga-
I


zines.
"The REAL Florida" will be
on exhibit Sept. 1-28. The
Arts Council Gallery is located
at 926 12th St., W, in the
Village of the Arts in Braden-
ton. Hours are 10 a.m.-4
p.m., Monday through Fri-
day, plus Artwalk hours, 6-
9:30 p.m., Friday, Sept. 1, and
11 ,a.m.-4 p.m., Saturday,
Sept. 2.
A reception for the artist
will be held at the Friday
Artwalk.

o, it isn't a "ringtail
anything," it's just a
plain ringtail. Some
places, though, 'this
resident of the Southwest
United States, who's related to
the raccoon, is called a miner's
cat, or a civet cat, or a cacomis-
tie. Its body is somewhat like a
cat; its face is fox-like; its long,
bushy tail of alternating black
and white bands reminds me
of a squirrel's tail, or maybe
something I might see in
Madagascar. Zoologists, how-
ever, have put the ringtail in
the same family as common
raccoons.
Though the ringtail lives in
Texas, New Mexico, Arizona
and California, principally, my
encounter with this nocturnal
tree climber was in the Anza
Borrego Desert of southern
California (close to San Diego).
It climbs trees every bit as well
as squirrels. A carnivore, the
ringtail often leaps down on its
prey, which includes snakes,
lizards, toads, small birds, rats,
mice, even squirrels and rab-
bits. It also enjoys eating fruit
and berries, and whatever else
it might discover.
The Anza Borrego Desert
area includes a large state
park, and park rangers live

PHOTO COURTESY OF LARRY ALL


I was lucky enough to capture an award-winning photograph of this usually nocturnal ringtail hanging from a tree limb in daylight in California's Anza Borrego Deser


there. One ranger told me
about the ringtails that come
down his chimney at night to"
scavenge whatever they might
find in his house. A ringtail's
claws are very, very sharp,
allowing it to climb walls and
chimneys, as well as trees. It
didn't bother the ranger a bit


to hear them scurrying about
in the night inside his home.
They were always gone by the
time he got up, and they were
apparently very clean critters,
too.
Ringtails groom themselves
when they initially wake up.
They lick their forepaws to


clean their ears, nose and
cheeks, somewhat like a do-
mestic cat. Of course, they can
scratch themselves most ef-
fectively with their rear paws.
Baby ringtails don't look at
all like their parents when
they're bom. They are white
and fuzzy, with short tails. It


takes time for them to take on
the appearance of an adult,
but by about four months of
age young ringtails can hunt
for themselves. The ringtails'
other common name, "mi-
ner's cat," comes from the fact
that miners used to catch ring-
tails and bring them down


into mines because they
such excellent rodent hunt
(actually more proficient
this type of hunting th
domestic cats are).

By Vicki Connell, 5
M.A., CCC-A ,
Certified Audiologist
Q. Recently, I work up
with a loss of hearing in my
right ear. I saw my doctor
who prescribed an
antibiotic. Ten days have,
gone by, I am out of
medication, and I still
cannot hear out of my ear.
What should I do?
A. When a person
experiences sudden hearing
loss they logically head for
their primary care
physician. Unfortunately,
some doctors do not realize
that this condition is a
medical emergency and
instead, take a "wait and
see" attitude. Sudden
hearing loss should always
be treated like any other
medical emergency
immediately. You cannot
afford to waste time if you
hope to get your hearing
back. In fact, the best time
to treat sudden hearing loss
is within the first 24 to 48
hours. Treatment usually
involves medications and
procedures that an Otologist
is best qualified to
administer. Knowing when
a hearing loss is a medical
emergency or not is
impossible for a lay person
to determine. If you have a
cold, have a blocked feeling
this would not be an
emergency but if you have a
cold, and have an infection
of your inner ear then this
would be an emergency
requiring immediate
attention. Since you have
now way of knowing- the
cause of a sudden hearing
loss, it is better to be safe
than sorry. Always contact
on Otologist immediately if
you experience a sudden
loss of hearing. The
Audiologists at Woodmere
Hearing Center, Inc. will
perform the testing the
Otologist will need and
insure that doctor sees you
promptly. Call 492-4327 at
the first signs of sudden
hearing loss.

STINGRAY fromr Pe I


Just say no to simulated seafood


Willoughby breezed
through the valley the other
day. He lives in the capital
city, but whips on through
here about once a month,
and each time he comes he
has new things to sell.
"You suppose," said Bert,
watching Willoughby's van


pull into town, "he sells all of
it each Lime and fills every-
one's orders, or just doesn't
sell any of it and has to try
new things?"
If we were to ask him, of
course, it would ruin specula-
tion, which is one of our
favorite things to do around
here. Willoughby, despite his
advancing years, leaped out
of the van and went into the
Soup 'R Market to see Ann-
ette. Naturally, we followed.
"Say," Doc said, as we
crossed the street, "wasn't
Willoughby's hair brown the
last time he was here? It's
black today."
"I believe you're right,"
Bert said.
Coal black. We could see
that as we came in and
bought sodas. Shoe polish, I


think.
We settled back against the
.pop machine and prepared to
enjoy the show.
"Whath got, Willough-
by?"
"The latest and greatest
thing going, Annette. You
know how you can't get fresh
seafood here because of the
distance, right? Well, now
there's Simulated Brand Sea-
food, all the flavor of the briny
deep without any of the deli-
cacy that makes it go bad on
you."
"Simulated?"
"Just as good as the real
thing. Yes, ma'am, I have sim-
ulated swordfish steaks,
slightly sea bass, faux floun-
der, kinda crab, and our num-
ber one seller this week ...
you ready for this ... tah DAH


.... Scarcely Scallops!"
"I don't know, Willoughby
I He sparkled right up to the
challenge. We 'sipped on
those pops. This beat any-
thing on TV
"Now we have simulated,
seafood, with a shelf life that
will keep all your customers
happy for as long as they want
to hang onto them."
Annette said no to
Willoughby, sending him on
down the road to greener pas-
tures. It's just as. well. I'm
holding out for Prit-Near
Prawns myself.

attention in a walk-in clinic as
soon as possible.
The venom emitted from
the stingray spine is a protein
venom, which will typically
break itself down after 24
hours. However, the effects
are typically painful. Accord-
ing to J.R. Ayers, Sarasota.
County Chief, Beach Patrol,
the best thing to do is soak the
puncture in hot water. A life-
guard or paramedic will be
able to help with this.
Luer concurs with Ayers.
Luer said that the water
should be hot enough for a
person to stand it, but not hot
enough to burn the -skin.The
Ihot water causes the protein.
to break down faster, alleiat-
ing some of the pain.
Ayers said that people who
are hit by stingrays should
seek medical attention after
leaving the lifeguard station.
He also recommends that
people get tetanus shots after-
a hit. Ayers also said that all
children who are hit by
stingrays should go to the
emergency room for after
care.
Luer's main concern about
a stingray strike was not the
actual puncture, but sec-
ondary infection. Since pieces
of the barb can come off
inside the wound, foreign


matter can cause an infec-
tion.
According to Ayers, be-
tween 18 and 30 stingray hits
can occur each summer,
when the water along Sara-
sota County beaches is warm.
Fishermen are also subject
to stingray hits because the
rays can get caught in their
lines. Luer said that if a fisher-
man were to catch a stingray
the best thing to do is to sim-
ply cut the line. It is not worth
the accidental strike a person
might get trying to get the ray
off the line.
In a'recent report by ABC
news, people in Australia, are
actually seeking out stingrays
and killing them. Luerf'said
people should never blame
the animal when deaths like

Irwin's occur.

Nuts and more nuts


This is going to be a nutty
article, and only those of you
who are as nutty as I am
should read this missal. It all
started a while back when I
got a tube of chocolate-cov-
ered hazel nuts from my
daughter-in-law. Then my
sidekick, Jeanne, tells me that
they are the same as filberts.
About then, I asked my other
sidekick, Endrus, if there was
anything on the computer
about nuts she's nutty, too.
And she came up with lots of
paydirt.
Did you know that there is
no cholesterol in nuts? So you
can eat all you want and it will
not clog your arteries, but
they are loaded with calories,
so watch your weight. But lis-
ten to all the good stuff that is
in nuts: They are an excellent
source of protein, fiber, vita-
min E, magnesium, zinc, etc.
Just for a point of interest, any
nut grown on plants or trees
,,07 (-,



U/^^ *


does not contain cholesterol.
Cholesterol is contained only
in animal fat.
So many people have nut
allergies that the airlines do
not serve them as snacks any-
more. I guess people were
allergic to the nuts and not to
the people around them I
always wondered. And I guess
a lot of you have heard the
story about the young girl
who kissed her boyfriend who
had eaten a candy bar with
nuts in it and died. Wow! That
was pretty bizarre.
Once upon a time I knew
that peanuts had grown
underground but had forgot-
ten. All other nuts grow on
tree or bushes. The most pop-
ular nut in this country are
cashews and deluxe mixed
nuts, but I'd take the cashews,
thank you. You can send them
-to me anytime why wait for
my birthday or Christmas?
Since the United States is
now the growth leader of
almorids, hazelnuts, maca-
damias, peanuts, pecans, pis-
tachios and walnuts, it is no
wonder the rest of the world
thinks we are nuts! Oh, I for-
got that macadamia nuts are
on my want list hint, hint!
We once had a black wal-
nut tree and we would put the
nuts in the driveway and
drive over them to get the
nutty things cracked and, as I
write this, I know I was com-
pletely nuts, trying to get the
meat out of their tiny crevices.

I dunno!
We discovered that pine
nuts are.grown in the Med-
iterranean area. The nut is
located between the leaves
and pine cones and are ex-
tremely hard to retrieve. They
are used in Middle Eastern
cuisine. My daughter-in-law
uses them to make pesto
sauce.
We also found that the
method of harvesting al-
monds is very interesting.
They bring a machine into
the grove and it tamps the
ground so hard that it shakes
the almonds off the tree. It is
followed by a sweeper to pick
them up a Hoover, maybe?
I dunno!
There was a large pecan
store that had every kind of
pecan imaginable in Georgia
and we would always stop
there, either heading north or
south to buy for friends and
ourselves. My favorite was
spicy pecans, slightly spiced
and were absolutely mar-
velous with cocktails. They
had .every kind of coated
pecan imaginable.
So you can see we are not
so nuts after all.

Free counseling for older adults


According to Charles Cur-
ie, the administrator for the

Health Services Administra-
tion (SAMHSA), "as many as
17 percent of older adults are

Unfortunately, older adults
tend not to seek help for these
issues.


There is help in the com-
munity for these issues.

Treatment for Elders) Project,
the Healthy Living Program
(HLP), and the Get Con-
nected Program. Services are

hancements ensuring that
youths have more choices.
The enhancements apply to
all flights on Emirates both
short trips and long-haul
journeys, many of which are
now equipped with Emirates'
latest in-flight entertainment
system, ICE.

received terrific feedback
from happy parents as well."
Children's programming

Never too early to get ready for Relay for Life

FRAN VELENCIC



On Thursday Connie De-
Marco and her committee
kickoff the Relay for Life with
a "Pacesetter Party" open to
prior year relay teams and
participants from 5:30 to 7
p.m. in the Community Room
at Venice City Hall.
This year's Relay for Life is
scheduled for May 3 and 4 at
Laurel Nokomis School. It is
not too early to make plans
for raising funds. I am hoping
the Relay committee keeps
me updated so I can pass that
information on to the readers.
Those of us who survived
cancer and are thriving know
.we are winning the fight. Let's
battle to the finish line so
someday cancer will just be a
faint memory. This is Connie's
second year as chair.
Birthday hurray
Ed Benson recently cele-


brated, a milestone birthday
with a deck party at Sharky's.
Surrounded by family and
friends, Ed enjoyed recalling
fond memories of a few years

you need is plenty of good
food and nice company.
Among the guests helping
celebrate with the birthday
boy were Laurel O'Connors

The gremlin is not just a

car, or I'm experiencing

technical difficulties,

please stand by


COURTNEY LINN
S"'. T WRITER


There are some people
who are, let's say, technologi-
cally challenged. These poor
people look at computers and
wonder, where the fish go. I
am not one of these people. I
am a new breed of technolog-
ically challenged. Every me-
chanical thing I touch seems
to develop new and strange
behavior never thought pos-
sible in the human mind. It
causes strife and much frus-
tration. And, horribly enough,
.people'think I'm crazy.


In the 1920s, rumors were
spread throughout Great Brit-
ain of a mysterious creature
who was sabotaging the Royal
Naval Air Service's aircraft.
These gremlins were known
to cause mechanical mal-
function. In fact, when you
look up gremlin in the dictio-
nary, it states that it is a crea-
ture who has technical knowl-
edge and is devious.
With all the technology out
today, I think that the gremlin
must be breeding rapidly and
into different divisions. Com-
puter division. Car division.
Ipod division. Cell phone di-
vision (this one is known no-
toriously for dropping calls).
Digital cable division, and so
on.
My computer, which I have
gone to school to learn how to
operate, has its own devious
gremlin. For some reason,
unknown to me, it shuts itself
on and off at any given point

turn itself on again and be
right where I left it. Some-
times, it turns itself off in the
middle of the night, and my
household is awoken to a
Windows chime-at 2:30 in the
morning. I have run numer-
ous virus scans and had it
looked at by a technician only
to be told there is nothing
wrong with my computer.
Hmmm. Tricky.

However, every Wednesday,
when I get home from work at
10 p.m..and put on my record-
ed episodes of "The People's
Court," my TV freezes for a
half an hour and must reboot.
This never happens to my
boyfriend. Only to me. On

"People's Court" shows at 10
p.m., on aWednesday, I really
get to watch them at 10:30
p.m.
When I call customer ser-
vice for help, their systems'
crash every time. The traffic
light .by my house skips a
cycle when I get to the front. I
can't ever turn the pump on at
the gas station without help.
Even my watches give me
trouble. The one I am wearing
right now says that it is 38th of
August.
With all of these techno-
logical problems I experience,
I think that the most devious,
most creative, most clever of
all the gremlins in my life lives
in my car.
For two years, I have had
the pleasant experience of'
having my car not start for me
on demand. And, when I tow


it to the shop, the mechanic
always starts the car without a
hitch. Then, he looks at me,
with his eyebrow cocked and
says,
"What's the problem
again?"
My windows are automat-
ic, and they automatically roll
down on their own at varying
moments. The alarm goes off
all day, and night, when it
rains, and when it doesn't.
And, to add insult to injury, all
my knobs have fallen off and
been reapplied.
However, the radio works
great. (Perhaps this gremlin at
least has the same taste in
music.)
I can relate to John Lithgow
and William Shatner when
they sat on their planes -
headed toward the twilight
zone and watched a grem-


lin no one else could see
almost crash their planes.
They know the truth and so
do I. ,
. Those gremlins are out
there. They are real. I know.
You can e-mail Courtney
Linn at clinn
@venicegondolier.com (that
is, if gremlins have not caused
her e-mail to crash).

Wanted: Green thumbs who grow gardens and cultivate communities


Cash rewards for
gardeners who help
others beautify
neighborhoods

STAFF REPORT

According to the National
Gardening Association, 83
percent of U.S. households
participated in lawn and gar-
den activities last year. For
some, gardening is more than
just a hobby-it's a way to
make a difference. With green
thumbs and elbow grease,
volunteers across the nation
are growing food to feed the
hungry, revitalizing crime-
ridden areas, teaching chil-
dren environmental steward-
ship and beautifying neigh-
borhoods.
To reward them, The Scotts
Miracle-Gro Company is
seeking nominees for its sev-
enth annual Scotts Give Back
to Grow Awards, which will
,offer a total of $40,000 to the
winners-$5,000 each to four
first-place category winners
and $2,500 to two additional
finalists in each category.
"Gardens can transform
communities, and the seeds
of these transformations are
often planted by volunteers,"
says Jim Hagedom, chair and
CEO of ScottsMiracle-Gro.
"The Awards recognize self-
less heroes for their efforts to
grow a better world."
Nominations are being
accepted for these categories:
* Classroom Gardener of the
Year Salutes elementary
through high school teachers


who incorporate gardening
into their curriculums.
* Urban Greenup Gardener
of the Year Salutes volun-
teers who use gardening to
address the challenges of an
inner-city neighborhood.
* Community Beautification
Gardener of theYear- Salutes
volunteers who demonstrate
their commitment to environ-
mental stewardship through
beautification of a main street,
park or neighborhood within
their city limits.
.. Good Neighbor Gardener
of the Year Salutes volun-
teers who help feed the hun-
gry by growing produce for
donation to food banks or
participating in programs
such as Plant a Row for the
Hungry.
The winners of the sixth
annual awards included a
middle school teacher whose
students learned important
life skills in their classroom
garden; a community mem-
ber who spearheaded the res-
toration of an abandoned, for-
merly segregated park; a gen-
erous gardener who led the
donation of more than 16,000
pounds of fresh produce to the
hungry; and a volunteer who
established a program that
improves quality of inner-city
life through year-round or-
ganic food production.
Nomination forms for the
seventh annual Awards can
be found at scotts.com/gbtg
or by calling (866) 565-3554.
Deadline for entry is Dec. 1,
2006. Winners and finalists
will be announced on or
before Feb. 9, 2007.

RINGTAIL froh page48


a foul-smelling fluid from anal
glands. That's where it gets the
name "civet cat," though the
original civet cat hails from
Africa, and its musk is actually
used in some perfumes.
.'1h,e third alternative name
for this species, cacomistlele"
is derived from a Mexican
Indian word which means
"half mountain lion," a tribute
to the ringtail's hunting pro-


wess.
The ringtail is a fascinating
creature to observe, though it
isn't seen often because of its
nocturnal habits. I'm certainly
glad I got introduced to this
intriguing species.

Volunteers needed at bird sanctuary


STAFF REPORT


Pelican Man's Bird Sanc-
tuary Wildlife Hospital and
'Education Center has a criti-
cal need for volunteers.
"At this time of year we
have fewer volunteers avail-
able for two primary rea-
sons," said Volunteer Mana-
ger Karie Hajek. "First, our
local volunteers are focused
on getting back to work and
school. Second, our corps of
'snowbird' volunteers have
not yet migrated back to
Florida." /
There are several types of'
volunteer positions available.


Volunteers can work in the
gift shop or greet visitors at
the welcome center. They can
guide visitors or provide edu-
cational talks on the board
%%alks and walking paths
throughout the sanctuary. If
they want to work more
closely with the birds, there
are a limited number of res-
cue, hospital and birdkeeper
positions, which require
advanced skills.
Volunteers are expected to
commit to a minimum of a
four-hour shift at least once a
week. They will need to com-
plete a basic training class,
and can take advantage of

tion to complete our mission

do it without them."

As we age,

their elasticity and
S' become tight, making it
more difficult to get around.
However, recent research
shows that stretching helps
muscles regain some suppleness,
and the longer the stretch, the
better. The study compared various
stretch durations in healthy people
with an average age of 85. One group
did no stretching while others
stretched for 15, 30, or 60 seconds. It
was found that the group that held its
stretches for 60 seconds increased
flexibility and range of motion by
nearly twice as much as the other
groups. They also had greater
mobility, greater ease in bending
over, and less back pain. Thus,
assisted stretching is recommended
for Seniors.

P.S. Chiropractic can help Seniors
deal with many age-related
conditions, such as arthritis.

Achoo!

Fur is not a key factor

in animal allergies

STAFF REPORT
One of the latest crazes in the pet industry is the careful
breeding of dogs to create "hypoallergenic pets." Some of this
breeding involves boosting the numbers of dogs that are less
likely to cause allergic reactions, while in other cases, two dif-
ferent breeds are mixed to create a "designer" dog, purported
to be the best thing since sliced bread for allergy sufferers. Case
in point: the labradoodle (labrador-poodle mix).
One must understand that there is a certain fallacy behind
the allergy-free pet. By looking at the definition of hypoaller-
genic and recognizing what substances cause animal allergies
in people, it can become evident that some individuals are
paying a high price tag for a pup that may be no less likely to
cause allergies than a run-of-the-mill mutt.

PHOTO COURTESY OF METROGRAPHICS
Nearly 10 percent of the population suffers from a pet allergy.

Do hypoallergenic dogs exist?
With the term'"hypoallergerilefiladft d' on all sorts of
products this day, individuals may question just what the word
means. Hypoallergenic items have a reduced tendency to
cause allergic reactions. However, since the prefix "hypo"
means "less" and not "none," there is still the possibility that a
hypoallergenic product (or animal) could cause allergy suffer-
ers to have a reaction. This is particularly true for asthma suf-
ferers who still may be affected by a dog with a hypoallergenic
name tag.
A big misconception among potential pet owners is that it is
the fur of the animal that is responsible for allergies. According
to allergists, however, this is simply not the case. In fact, the
urine, saliva and dander (excess skin cells shed from the ani-
mal) are the main allergen sources. So no matter how short
you shave your dog, or if the animal has a natural short coat to
begin with, this will largely not be a factor in allergic reactions,
particularly if dander is present in a high amount.
That isn't to say there aren't some dog breeds that may have
a reduced tendency to trigger allergic reactions. These include
single-coated dogs, who do not have a thick undercoat, and
hairless dogs. Even hairless dogs, however, can produce
enough dander to affect a highly allergic person. Types of sin-
gle-coated dogs include poodles, schnauzers, soft-coated
wheaten terriers, the Bichon Frise, and the West Highland
Terrier (Westies), for example. But if an individual's allergy
stems from contact with a dog's urine or saliva, even these
breeds can pose a problem.
Managing allergies
The American College of Allergy, Asthma and
Immunization (ACAAI) reports that an estimated 10 percent of
the population suffers from some sort of allergic reaction to
animals. A higher rate of 20 to 30 percent of individuals with
asthma have pet allergies.
Still, there are some people who, despite being allergic to
animals, refuse to give up a pet. The ACAAI recommends these
individuals do the following to perhaps make symptoms more
manageable:
Keep the pet confined to one room of the house, and
install a HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Arresting) air filter
on the heating/cooling system (if a forced-air system is at work
in the house) to limit the amount of allergens traveling
throughout the house.
Allergic individuals should not pet, hug or kiss their pets'
because of the allergens on the animal's fur or saliva.
The pet should be kept out of the bedroom of the allergic
individual.
Litter boxes should be placed in an area unconnected to
the air supply for the rest of the home, and should be avoided
by the allergic patient.
Some allergic patients may have severe reactions, such as
wheezing and shortness of breath, after exposure to certain
pets. Also, a chronic, slowly progressive feeling of shortness of
breath, loss of energy and feeling of fatigue can result from
long-term exposure to birds and their droppings. This type of
disease is known as hypersensitivity pneumonitis and can
result in severe disability. In the event of these severe cases,
removal of the offending animal is mandatory.
There are some allergy shots recommended for people who
must come in contact with animals. These are best adminis-
tered and supervised by an allergist-immunologist. They may
be given for at least three years and decrease symptoms of
asthma and allergy. Usually after about six months of weekly
injections allergy symptoms improve and less medication is
required.
For those who suspect an animal allergy, visit an allergist
who may conduct skin tests or special allergy blood tests for
diagnosing allergy to animals.

ONE LAST WORD


"This benefit of seeing ... can come only if you pause a while,
extricate yourself from the maddening mob of quick impressions
ceaselessly battering our lives, and look thoughtfully at a quiet
image ... the viewer must be willing to pause, to look again, to
meditate." Dorothea Lange, Photographer (1895-1965)


BY JEFF TAVARES
STAFF WRITER
PHOTOJOURNALIST


hhh.
Thousands of words, notes of music,
grunts, automobile horns, telephone
rings and numerous other sounds pass through
our ears daily.
Those noises made are by co-workers, family,
friends and strangers.
But is anyone listening?

Type the word "listening" into Google and you'll get about
394 million hits. Type in the word "talking" and you'll get
about 678 million.
Maybe we talk too much.
We hear more information each day than we can absorb,
or, depending on who you're talking to, would care to.
Every office and every family has someone who loves to
talk, often talking uninterrupted for way too long.
The first person to talk too much most likely was crawling
around a cave grunting nonstop when finally he was hit with
a club by a fellow tribesman.
There are some cases where excessive talking is serious.
Some medical conditions such as Attention Deficit/
Hyperactivity Disorder in children and Narcissistic
Personality Disorder in adults include excessive talking as a
symptom.
The art of listening.
Frangois de la Rochefoucauld said it best: "To listen close-
ly and reply well is the highest perfection we are able to
attain in the art of conversation."
An appropriate amount of listening by two people leaves
both with a wonderful feeling the art of good conversa-
tion.
There's even an international organization dedicated to
listening.
The International Listening Association, formed in 1979,
is "dedicated to learning more about the impact that listen-
ing has on all human activity," according to the group's Web
site, listening, org.


There are some valuable things that happen when you
listen. First and foremost: You learn something.
"I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening
carefully. Most people never listen," said writer Ernest
Hemingway.
Listening is a skill and an art that you must learn.
The Web site career-intelligence.com suggests that good
listening starts with focusing on the other person instead of
yourself. Don't be thinking of what you are going to say
when you're listening to someone else.
Be attentive. Don't look around at other things or people.
Make eye contact and lean forward toward the person you're
talking to, show that you are listening to what he or she is
saying.
Shhh. Listen.
Thoughtful reflection
We've all heard people start a sentence with, "I've thought
long and hard about it and ...."
Perhaps it would be better if we heard that phrase more
often.
As we move through our world filled with instant com-
munications such as e-mails, rapid decision-making, and
poor or no planning for projects, maybe it's time for some
thoughtful reflection.
We sprint through our lives and our decision-making,
what we do with our time during the day, what we choose to
read or write and dozen of other decisions.
The Merriam Webster dictionary defines "thoughtful" as,
"characterized by careful reasoned thinking" and "reflec-
tion" as, "a thought, idea, or opinion formed or a remark
made as a result of meditation."
Careful, reasoned ideas and thoughts as a result of medi-
tation are centuries old, but are they disappearing?
"Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet," says
writer Deepak Chopra, "It's a way of entering into the quiet
that's already there buried under the 50,000 thoughts the
average person thinks every day."
'Whatever happened to class'
The song "Class" from the musical "Chicago," starts with
these lyrics:
"Whatever happened to fair dealing


And pure ethics
And nice manners?
Why is it everyone now is a pain in the ... ?"
Manners, courtesy, fair dealing and other social interac-
tion skills seem on the decline.
The polls agree.
In a May 2005 Associated Press-Ipsos poll, nearly 70 per-
cent said "people are ruder than they were 20 or 30 years ago."
Forty-one percent of those people admit they are part of
the problem: They themselves act rudely.
If you think it's just those evil big city folks that are rude,
you're wrong.
Seventy-four percent of people polled in urban areas said
people were ruder, but it was close for those in rural areas,
where 67 percent said people were ruder.
When asked to explain what is causing the "deterioration
of courtesy and respectfulness in today's world," respon-
dents cited the following:
Overcrowding
Too much anonymity
Pressures of fast-paced lives
A declining sense of community
An overall rise in selfishness
Ninety-three percent of people in the AP-I poll think they
know who is ultimately responsible for all this rudeness:
parents, "for failing to teach their children well."
Respondents cited issues such as parents not willing to
spend the necessary time to teach their children properly
and making others such as schools responsible for instilling
courtesy and good manners.
Civility
Perhaps these lost arts of listening, thoughtful reflection,
manners, respect and fair dealing have to do with being civil
toward each other.
Putting people before material things.
Or maybe it won't.
Type "putting people first" into Google and you get sites on
how to improve customer service, a book for sale and some-
thing called "user-centered design and universal usability."
