LaMorte sentenced to 21 years in prison


The former Venice High School coach apologizes
for "sins (that) will always be with me," while one
of his victims said he has found closure.


BYTOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

In a packed, courtroom
Tuesday, former Venice High
School coach James LaMorte
Sr., 64, was sentenced to a
total of 21 years in prison for
molesting two'former stu-,
dents.
"You should spend the bal-
ance of your life in prison,"
Sarasota County Circuit Judge
Andrew Owens told LaMorte.
The sentences will run


consecutively.
Reading from a prepared
statement prior to sentenc-
ing, LaMorte apologized for
the "hurt and pain" he caus-
ed.
"'These sins will always be
with me,' LaMorte said, ac-
cording to Venice attorney
Robert Harrison.
Harrison represented one
of LaMorte's victims.
LaMorte did not present
any witnesses at the sentenc-
ing hearing.


Four witnesses testified
against him.
The plea
LaMorte pleaded guilty to
one count of sexual assault
and battery on a victim over
12 years old by a person in
custodial authority, and no
contest to a count of sexual
assault by a person in custo-
dial authority.
The pleas were made April
10, just hours before his trial
was to begin.
Additionally, LaMorte
pleaded to one count of a
lewd and lascivious act in the
presence of a child under 16
years old.

Venice Little League offi-
cials got a lot of questions
answered at Monday's city of
Venice Parks and Recreation
Advisory Board meeting.
Unfortunately, the answers
likely will cost them some
money.
The youth sports organiza-
tion had been going around
in circles with Sarasota
County over who has respon-
sibility for the maintenance
of the ballfields at Chuck
Reiter Park andWellfield Park,
and who should be paying
the electric bills.
"We've never really under-
stood how that works," said
VLL President Dave Morse. "If
we have to pay the bills and
maintain the fields, then we
have to shut down the Venice
Little League."
It won't come to that..
Though the league has an
outstanding $16,000 electric
bill it didn't know about, the
county has written off ahoth-


ATMS
LEGALS
LET EM HAVE IT
LOTTO
OBITUARIES


er two years' worth of electric
bills.
And because maintenance
is largely a county function,
and the 2006-2007 county
budget has more money in it
for personnel and materials,
the county has pledged to
give VLL -credit against the
outstanding electric bill for
money spent to maintain and
improve the fields.
"I'm really happy about
what's happening here," long-
time VLL Manager Terry
Tritschler told the board.
Finally talking
VLL's confusion apparently
stems from two sources: a
lack of communication and a
misunderstanding of the
terms of the agreement be-
tween the city, which owns
both facilities, and the coun-
ty, which maintains them
under the terms of the settle-
ment of a tax dispute a num-
ber of years ago.
In the agreement the
county assumes the responsi-
bility for the electric bills,

7A WEATHER


which VLL had taken that to
mean the league didn't have
to pay.
Affirming that assumption
was the lack of any bills from
Florida Power and Light or
the county for electricity.
"We never got any bills, so
we thought we weren't liable
for them," said VLL Treasurer
Diane lorio.
But the agreement only
absolves the city of any
charges, according to Jack
Colligan, a county parks de-
partment manager.
User agreements with the
various leagues that play on
the fields put the burden of
paying the hourly kilowatt
charges on them.
There are 37 such user
agreements, he said; onlyVLL
hasn't been paying its bills
regularly.
The county learned Mon-
day that it has been sending
them to the wrong address.
Whenever the subject of
the bills came up at board
meetings, Iorio said, one of
the board members said he

7A BRIDGE

2A CROSSWORD


would take care of them.
Colligan said the board mem-
ber told the countyVLL wasn't
going to pay them.
He's no longer on the
board, Iorio said.
VLL did make a $2,500
payment for electricity earlier
this year, she said, and got a
receipt showing no balance
due.
But all that meant, accord-
ing to parks supervisor Ed
Exner, was that the $2,500
payment had been paid in
full, not that VLL was no
longer in arrears.
County staff and VLL rep-
resentatives will be sitting
down soon to compare notes
and put a number on what
the league owes.
Because the league has
only a few thousand dollars in
the bank, it won't just be writ-
ing a check, Iorio said.
"Work with us," Exner said.
"That's all we're asking."

"Finally you're talking to
each other," said board mem-
ber Vema Silk. "I can't see why
it took so long."


Other board action
Also discussed at Monday's
meeting:
Venice Beach Pavilion -
Colligan said some repairs
had been made to the roof,
but board member Dawn
Stoddart said the problems
she had brought up previous-
ly weren't structural.
"It was that one of our
parks didn't look good," she
said.
Colligan said he would ask
the county's facilities mainte-
nance division to look into
resurfacing the roof.
Student Leadership
Academy Morse said the
school across Field Avenue
from Chuck Reiter Park has
been using baseball dia-
monds as soccer fields, tear-
ing up the grass.
Colligan said the school
would be told to use the fields
for the sports for which they
were designed.

to get the country thinking
"water conservation."

the problem of water short-

The key to the group's so-

about the basic cost ratio

water supplies. According
to NRG Executive Director

Venice only 3 percent of
what it would cost to sup-
ply the city with an equal
amount of water.
"The trick is to get water
efficient," said Shea. "Venice
is on the edge of a very seri-
ous problem. The city is
committed to a certain
amount of growth, but the
city doesn't have the water
for these new people. Even if
the city had the water, waste
water treatment is very costly.
There are two ways to solve
the problem. One is con-
structioripn dhd.tahe- Other; is
conservation and, of die two.,


conservation is by fat the less
expensive."
Shea noted that when
most people hear the word
conservation, they are turned
off immediately.
"When you tell people to
conserve, they think in terms
of sacrifice," said Shea. "They
don't want to sacrifice. They
don't want to flush their toi-
lets once a week or shower
once a week. But we've cho-
sen to approach the problem
in a different way. Our ap-
proach allows the water user
,.to, save 40 percent without
any sacrifice."

School sites tapped


as debris zones


The county and school board sign an agreement
allowing South Cpunty school property to
be used during emergencies as collection sites
for nonhazardous storm-related debris.


Three-car crash in South Venice


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Call it community service.
The Sarasota County
School Board has agreed to
allow the county access to two
South County school sites to
temporarily store debris in the
event of an emergency.
Under new FEMA rules
promulgated in the aftermath
of Hurricane Katrina, local
governments cannot receive
FEMA funds unless they have
authorized staging areas that
may be used for temporary
storage and processing of
hurricane-related debris.
Local officials say they
have enough sites for tempo-
rary storage of hurricane
debris in the north and cen-
tral parts of the county, but
lack South County sites, ac-
cording to school officials.
The 'agreement calls for
school property to be utilized
as debris collection points
on Venice's SCTI campus
bordering Indian Hills Boule-
vard off Jacaranda, and a por-
tion of a lot at the Engle-
wood Recreation Center bor-
dering Englewood Elemen-
tary School.
The board approved the
agreement Tuesday "at its
regular meeting.
Last resort
School Board chair Carol
Todd said she had two con-
cerns and got assurances on
both.
"My understanding is the
sites will be used only as a
last resort, not a first resort,
and.be .located -on school-,
owned property but not on
any existing campuses,"
Todd said. /
According to the agree-
ment, the land can only be
used if an emergency is de-
clared and state officials
decide access to the sites is
necessary, and only after the
county has activated all other
debris management sites in
the area.
The sites will be fenced off
and signs put up at a future
date.

In the event of a hurricane
or other disaster, the sites
could be used for residents
to dump debris accumulat-
ed on their own property,
Todd said.
The county would be
responsible for assuring haz-
ardous materials don't get
into the sites. If they do, the
county would be responsible
for clean-up.
"If the county uses it, then
they are the ones responsible
for it," said school attorney
Art Hardy, who reviewed the
agreement. "They have the
responsibility to manage the
sites. They're the experts.
We're just letting them use
the land."
Good citizen
The Department of Envir-
onmental Protection retains
the option to approve pri-
vate operation of a staging
area.
Construction and demo-
lition debris, land-clearing
debris, yard trash and veg-
etative waste may be stored
in the staging areas. House-
hold garbage and other
waste that could rot must be
removed from the staging
areas and disposed of as
soon as practicable to pre-
vent odor and sanitary nui-
sances, state EPA guidelines.
The plan calls for spotters
to be used during waste
dropoff to correctly identify
and segregate waste types.
Unsalvageable refrigerators
and freezers, for example,
would be removed to appro-,
priate landfills and recycled

OUR VIEW



County needs to be ready for the job it's taking on


t could prove to be an important step in
growth management, yet we wonder
about county staff's ability to effectively
coordinate annexation throughout Sarasota
County.
North Port and Venice gave in to the coun-
ty's demands to let it take part in future
rezoning decision regarding newly annexed
lands. Both cities also agreed to a six-month
moratorium on all new annexation projects.
North Port and Venice have just four
months to cut a deal that will satisfy county
commissioners. If the cities fail to appease
the county, it could hold a spring referendum
to change the county charter.
Florida's charter counties gained the
upper hand when Seminole County won a
court decision over Winter Springs.
Playing that card may or may not be a wise


move. The skill of the county staff can be
questioned.,
Venice City Manager Marty Black said the
county planning department's report at the
Thursday meeting was seriously flawed. The
county's numbers suggesting thousands of
new homes would be built in Venice because
of annexation were wrong, Black said.
Bill Moore a Sarasota attorney, told com-
missioners ho represented the Carlton fami-
ly, which owns 16,000 acres in the eastern
part of the county. The Carlton family had
been discussing a large conservation ease-
ment with the county, but the county broke
the talks off without explanation, Moore said.
County Cmmissioner Jon Thaxton said
he didn't know the talks had been broken off
and called that fact "disturbing." We agree
with Thaxton's assessment of the situation.


In the past we have discussed what appears
to be ineptness on the part of county officials in
handling the Savilla Street drug-treatment facil-
ities dispute inWarm Mineral Springs.
The federal government has accused
Sarasota County of violating the fair housing
act when the county prevented Renaissance
Manor from operating six group homes on
Savilla Street.
The Savilla Street' blunder by the county
staff could cost taxpayers millions if the
county loses to Renaissance Manor and its
partner in court.
Competent city planners should be work-
ing with equally capable county staffers, If
not, it could produce some very nasty clash-
es and even poor decisions in the years
ahead.
County Administrator Jim Ley and the


county commissioners may have won the
initial annexation battle with North Port and
Venice. But Ley must now make sure his
county staff is able to handle the big job it
faces.
As Brian .Tuttle, owner of the huge Isles of
Athena project, told the county, "Your goal
(to limit grok th) cannot trample my rights."
He said le was currently working with the
city, and he told the county he also was will-
ing to "work with your guy." Tuttle says his
project will produce 13,000 jobs for North
Port, as well as $400 million, and provide help
for the city's water and sewer problems.
Tuttle is donating more of his land to "pre-
serves" in popes of getting permission to
build 12,00o homes.
These ar, important projects. The county
staff needs to be sharp. Changes are needed.


Time. for




a change

ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST


It is time for a change in
Venice City Council in at least'
two dimensions.
First, council needs new
blood, a council member
independent of the "dumb
growth" political machine
based on the contributions of
the Citizens for Quality Gov-
ernment. Second, council
needs to use the moratorium
it pledged to the county com-
missioners to demonstrate
that it has a moderate growth
philosophy not "no
growth," but growth without
excessive heights and density
- growth consistent with a
Venice based on John Nolen's
vision.
Council members should
sense the way the wind is
blowing. The county's voters
just elected Joe Barbetta, an
advocate for moderate
growth and environmental
concerns, to the county com-
mission. As the Gondolier Sun
reported and editorialized, a
pro-development political
action committee used last-
minute dirty tactics to distort
Barbetta's views. The effort,
happily, failed.
In a recent survey 60 per-
cent of the voters polled said
they would support a county
charter amendment. Unless
Venice plans cooperatively
with the county for moderate
growth, there will be a refer-
endum in six months, which I
have no doubt will pass,
allowing changes in annexa-
tion densities only when the
county commissioners and
city council agree.
Venice has the opportunity
to add a moderate-growth
advocate to our council. Ernie
Zavodnyik (Za-vod-nick), a
graduate of the Notre Dame
Law School, is daring to run
for office without accepting
funds from the CQG, against
John Simmonds, who has had
its backing in the past, and in
fact, is a founding member.
Zavodnyik is performing a
public service just by run-
ning, offering voters an op-
portunity to hear issues dis-
cussed and a chance to make
a choice about the direction
of the city's growth.
In an interview, Zavodnyik
agreed that growth must


occur but said he wants to fol-
low a moderate course, main-
taining the small-town feel of
Venice, protecting the quality
of life and the environment
and recognizing the strains
that large growth will bring to
our roads, beaches and natur-
al resources. He expressed
interest in transportation for
seniors and recreational op-
portunities for young people.
Zavodnyik served the
American Bar Association for
23 years as the staff director
for judicial administration.
He also had experience as
assistant corporate counsel
for the city of Chicago and in
private practice. His interests
include Epiphany Cathedral,
the Venice Area Audubon
Society and the Notre Dame
Club of greater Sarasota.
I believe that background
will be very useful on council.
John Moore, the only other
attorney on the council, has
been very helpful in improv-
ing the city's business prac-
tices, including with leases
that, in the past, saw council
approving leases with blank
places in them where critical.
financial information was not
filled in. The analytic and
judicious processing of infor-
mation coming before coun-
cil is a critical skill.
John Simmonds, a likeable
man, has demonstrated a
pro-growth bias including, as
I wrote in earlier articles, feel-
ing as though he must be a
cheerleader for certain pro-
jects, which may only coinci-
dentally have been submitted
by CQG stalwarts.
Simmonds does not dem-'
onstrate sharp analytic skills,
appearing ambivalent on a
number of issues warning
about excessive heights, but
voting for the proposals that
might allow it. When he was
faced with the arguments by
Moore and others that the
mixed-use project zoning
submitted by Mike Miller and
his attorney, Jeff Boone, was
vague and needed refine-
ment, he suggested voting to
approve it now because it
could always be changed later
and the ultimate buildings
could be approved piece by
piece by the council an
idea that must have horrified
the developer as much as
other council members.
In the final analysis, Sim-
monds seems to me to be an
"old pol" -a go-along to get-
along kind of man who brings
no new vision to the city or
council. He has. had a good
turn in the public arena, but
his time appears to have
passed.

LETTERS FROM OUR LEADERS


Win-winm? Looks like lose-lose


Editor:
Crowded roads are our constant reminder of the negative
effects of growth. Still, proponents of growth are efficient in
placing a positive spin on changes needed for growth.
I recently attended a meeting concerning the reduction of
huge freshwater flows into Dona and Roberts bays. These flows
were created from poorly conceived land drainage and flood
control schemes in the last century.
The county now plans to collect the freshwater inflows; the
resulting restored salinity will improve the environment for
clams, oysters and seagrass.
Of course, the recovered freshwater will also make future
development possible, and perhaps this was the real driving
force for obtaining the needed funding. The operation was
described as a "win-win" project.
Just a year ago the plan for increased water withdrawals
from the Peace River was praised. The water would be with-
drawn during periods of high river-flow, minimizing any nega-
tive effects of river flushing of its estuary.
A true "win-win" program would be using the freshwater
recovered from the bays to reduce withdrawals from the Peace
River.
A pessimist might view the increased freshwater supplies
from the bays and Peace River as a "lose-lose" situation. The
new water will supply new development. The resulting waste-
water stream, will be used to irrigate thousands of new acres of
grass, leaching nutrients into the gulf.
But growth proponents can make us "an offer we can't
refuse." It's either this water or the truly environmentally
unfriendly desalinated seawater.

I guess five
was too many
'Editor:
Five out of 805. That's all,
just five affordable units out
of 805 units was all that Plan-.
ning Commission Chair John
Osmulski asked J&J Homes
Laurel Lakes developer and
his attorney, Jeffrey Boone, to
set aside for affordable hous-
ing.
Boone's responses to Os-


mulski and commissioners
Benny Weaver and Tom Bix-
ler's suggestions were: 1. That
they were having a discus-
sion, but didn't know where it
will end; 2. If we do workforce
housing, we will need higher
density. 3. The owners of the
five units would sell in three
to five years at a windfall prof-
it. He seemed to ignore sug-
gestions that this could be
avoided by deeds that would


deter those sales.
Meanwhile, the other plan-
ning commissioners were si-
lent. They offered no com-
ments, pro or con, regarding
affordable/workforce units.
What will it take to convince
the Venice City Hall powers of
the desperate need for afford-
able/workforce housing and
give them the strength to work
for it?
Do theywant a city only for
the rich? If so, their vision of
Venice is counter to what
Venice citizens' goals were
when they attended the En-
vision Venice public forums.
It seems those goals have
been, for the most part, aban-
doned.
Five out of 805. Is that real-
ly asking too much? I don't
think so.

Unreserved support
for Doug Holder
Editor:
Give Holder a chance!
Why have the media vili-
fied the man for running a
campaign based on issues
(listen to him talk and'read
his mailers) and overcoming
great odds to.defeat what was
considered to be well-con-
nected opposition, one of
whom was endorsed by three
newspapers?
The big rap I keep hearing
is that he's only been here a
year and moved here from
another part of the state. So
what? Last time I checked this


was a state position. Most of
us have moved here from
somewhere else and we sure
know what issues this state
and area face. Also the last
time I checked, family mem-
bers could only contribute
$500 each, so I'm not sure
how his family could have
bankrolled his campaign
unless he has a ton of relatives
and still, so what?
If they want to help a fami-
ly member out, let them.
I have no reservations that
Doug Holder will do a fine job
of representing the people of
South County should he win
the general election.

Talk about something that matters


BY RAY STONER
GUEST COLUMNIST

Sure are a lot of new signs
along Sarasota County's
trash-littered highways. Join-
ing the list of "utions": air
poll-ution, water poll-ution,
now here's more visual poll-
ution.
The cause? Why, it's time
Sfor new leadership. The work-
er bees will soon select the
elect through elections. This
is how the system works or
does it?
Let's look at the issues.
Unfortunately we cannot, for
there are no issues. The only
things being discussed are
what the spin doctors have
defined as the "issues."
From the top to bottom the
agenda is debated in what
George Orwell called "new-
speak." So what is the subject
of the."newspeak issues?"
For openers all the candi-
dates are against raising taxes.
This makes sense with all the
windfall tax dollars being
reaped from skyrocketing
property values. So here is a
no-brainer being made into
an issue. Then we are reas-
sured no price gouging will be
allowed should another hur-
ricane occur.
Everyone has filed the
proper papers, everything is
ready to go. Apparently these
filings allow our prospective
leaders to savage each other.
What other justification is
there for the vilification of
Katherine Harris, or the re-
cent unacceptable comments
made by a sitting Sarasota
County commissioner?
I This backbiting has be-
1,


come so intense the county
now finds itself the object of
ridicule on national late-'
night comedy TV The chainm-
bers of commerce must be
overjoyed about all this.
Before elections became
personality contests, candi-
dates addressed issues. You
were either for or against
something. The something
you were for or against was
also something of substance.
Whether anyone wants to
admit it or not, we Americans
are in serious trouble. The
infrastructure is in shambles.
From the shutdown of the
Alaska pipeline to the condi-
tion of the local roads, some-
one has not been doing their
job.
Elections are supposed to
be about choices. If there is
nothing to choose between,
then we will continue to
receive more of the same.
Everyone is for something.
Nobody knows for what.
From ATV riders who can't
ride to info trailers that can't
pork, why are we following
protocols that were obsolete
years ago?
When are we going .to be-
gin living in a real world and
start addressing real issues? If
the traffic congestion gets any
worse this winter the whole
state may turn into a parking
lot.
With the astounding
amounts of cash siphoned off
for education, where is the
bang for these bucks? With all
new buildings, buses, and
teachers, should not Florida
be first rather than 39th ad-
cording 'to Morgan Quinto
Press, publisher of state and


city ranking publications?
Another issue is water.
Before the Southwest Florida
Water Management District
allowed the aquifer to be
pumped dry, water bubbled
up out of the ground. It still
,does at Salt Springs.
Why are these free-flowing
water sources capped or
allowed to sediment up? Are
any of the current "candy-
dates" willing to address
these tough questions? Ap-
parently addressing sugar-
coated issues like smoking
and seat-belt enforcement
are more important than
public safety and quality of
life.
Then there are the retirees.
What about their issues: loss
of pensions, inability to afford
prescription drugs. Who is
their advocate?
Finally, there are the
homeless, or the combat vets
now gathering under the
bridges for lack of shelter.
Where do they fit into this
equation?
With nothing of substance
being debated, how is the
electorate to know what is of
substance?
With candidates attacking
each other over meaningless
or personal issues, perhaps
it's time to change the system.
Let's start with the ballot.
Instead of voting for A, B, or C,
let's add a new category- none
of the above. That way a lot of
people who don't like what
they see will be able to
express their opinion.

Can they play Well with
others?
City council has a number,
perhaps a majority, of mem-
bersf who seem to have the
Ability. to make reasoned.
judgments and to negotiate'dni
:good faith with others.
Negotiations between the city
and the-county are not going
to be a one-way street.
While the county is right
that Venice has in almost
every case increased the den-
sity of annexed properties
beyond the county's plans,
0 the county has also approved
growth near Venice without
consultation, which affects
the city and its residents.
It will be interesting to see
what progress may occur dur-
ing the moratorium.
As one who has attended a
good number of council and
planning commission meet-
ings, I have heard Mayor Fred
Hammett and City Manager
Marty Black, among others,
express hostility toward the
county and its representatives
not necessarily without
some provocation. It seems
likely that council members
Bill Willson, Vicki Taylor, John
Moore and perhaps Rick Tacy
will have to set the tone for
negotiations on Venice's part
about its annexation and
long-term planning goals.
There are, for example, a
number of projects that have
, been granted or are asking for
planning and zoning designa-
tions that will allow 75-85 foot
heights in the North Venice
area. Will council have the
wisdom, vision and will to
turn down those requests in
the "conditional approval'
process?
Will the citizens of the
future see attractive residen-

LET 'EM HAVE IT! SHOULD THE CITY GIVE MONEY TO YOUTH SPORTS GROUPS AND
ARTS ORGANIZATIONS? CALL US AT 207-1111.

City should loosen the purse strings


Help needed. I just read the article on city budget grant
requests. I know for a fact that this the first year the city of
Venice gave money to Venice Little League and Venice Vikings
and they're saying they've been getting it all along. Somebody
ought to do a records request or public records request arid
find out how long they've giving grants out to these little non-
profit youth groups. I know for a fact that it's the first time those
two associations got any money from the city of Venice. The
department head over there went around telling those associ-
ations to request the money. The city of Venice is not meant for
today's youth or younger families. I don't know what kind of
game the city manager is trying to play but apparently it's not
one in the public's best interest. It kind of reminds me George
Hunt. It's a shame. We've got good programs around here and
the city doesn't want to do anything about it. They seem to let
the kids go to vandalism and destruction. They complain
about today's youth when they've got youth groups willing to
help out. Times are tough for everybody, that's understandable
especially those volunteer groups that are willing to help. It's a
shame that the city is getting old.
EDITOR'S NOTE: At the budget hearing the youth groups themselves
said they had received city funding previously and were asking that it be
continued or enhanced.


Get scientific. The sarcastic
Let'em Have It that suggests
cutting our speed limits in
half strikes a chord of truth.
Disguised as a safety issue,
our politically determined
speed limits are really rev-
enue enhancers that make
criminals out of most drivers.
Who among us has never
deliberately broken a speed
limit? Although it's been
many years since I've been
caught in a speed trap, the


injustice still sticks in my'
craw.


Even though I appreciate
the assistance that our police
give us when we are in dis-
tress, whenever I. see yet
another driver pulled over for
speeding, I still can't help-feel-
ing resentful. I don't want to
be upset ever again with these
officers for just doing their
jobs, so please won't someone
inform me as to how we can
get our speed limits set scien-

prison.
After the first 1995 bomb-
ing in Saudi Arabia, the 199,6
Khobar Towers bombing and
the 1998 bombing of U.S.
embassies in Africa, all the
terrorists were captured and
sent to prison.
After the 2000 USS Cole
bombing, Clinton promised
that those responsible would
be hunted down and pun-
ished, and if his vice president


had been elected in 2000,
instead of a-family friend of
the bin Laden family of Saudi
Arabia, Al Gore might have
been able to follow through
on Clinton's promise and
about 3,000 people in New
York and Washington, D.C.,
might be alive today.
The actual proof that al-
Qaida bombed the Cole didn't
come to light until February
2001.


Who was president then?
Why didn't Bush punish al-
Qaida when this proof came
to light?
Why hasn't Ge6rgeW Bush
caught and prosecuted
Osama bin Laden? He now
says he's not even thinking of
him anymore! Saddam Hus-
sein was more important?

Victims (all are adults,

"When you go to hell," the
victim's mother said to
LaMorte, "I want you to burn

Harrison represents one of

not the one whose mother

thank the cities for allowing
us to give it a try. We really
have a shot at something
that's good and lasting here."
As everyone filed out of the
Administration Center, North
Port City Commissioner Va-
nessa Carusone admitted to
feeling "optimistically re-
served. I think we're moving
forward in a positive way."
Venice Mayor Fred Ham-
mett affirmed the need for
the cities to enter into mean-
ingful discussions with the
county and
each other -
about growth.
"It's really .
important that .
each jurisdic-
tion under-
stand what the
neighbor's
doing. In every
case, it has an Hammett
impact -
sometimes positive, some-
times riegative," he said.
Hammett acknowledged
the cities need to get together
on providing the necessities
that are required for in-
creased growth-- safety ser-
vices, fire and police, emer-
gency response and roads.
"I think sitting down at the
table and understanding
what the other entity is doing
is very positive and I'm glad
that we got there," he said.
"We're good to go and we're
anxious to get on with it."

- Nov. 3, 13, 30 Joint meet-
ings of boards.
* Dec. 8 Optional joint
board meeting date.
b Dec. 14 Joint meeting of

Jan. 8-12 County commis-
sion holds public hearing to

*Jan. 8-12 A joint press
release issued from each man-
ager communicating the JPAs.



Four months
Earlier in the day, North
Port City Attorney Rob
Robinson told the North Port
City Commission that yet
another annexation request
had come in on Friday.


"Of substance, late this
morning, (Planning & Zoning
Director) Sam (Jones)
informed me we had an
annexation filed Friday for
the (Manatee Community
College) entrance road, about
14.2 acres," Robinson said. He
added that the petition would
be held in abeyance for six
months, or until March 13.
"For the most part, it's a
cease-fire for six months,"
said Robinson. "But (it's) real-
ly a little shorter than that."
Four months, actually.
The drop-dead date is Jan.
12. If the county commission-
ers are not satisfied that sub-
stantive progress has been
made with joint planning
agreements by then, they will
advertise a referendum for
the March 13 ballot that could
give the county more power
over annexation of rural land
by the cities.
Is four months enough
time?
"We work well under pres-
sure, all of us," said North Port
City Commissioner Barbara
Gross. "I think the nuts and
bolts are there, and once the
staff puts something together
and brings it to the different
commissions, we can say'yea'
or 'nay' on different things. It's
going to be hard, but doable."
North Port Commissioner
Fred Tower agreed.
"This has been brewing for
a long time," he said. "It goes
back to 2001-2002. We're well
prepared for it. We have a


good background for it. We
can do it because all of us
have it set in our mind that we
need an agreement."
"Joint meetings are most
important to let the county
know where we will and
where we won't be willing to
budge," Gross said. "(In the
meantime) we can get a PR
firm and get ourselves togeth-
er so if in January they decide
to go to ballot, we'll be off and
running."

Osterhoudt also referred to
a second analysis performed
in 2005, not survey based,
that utilized fixed points
(Venice Inlet, Big Pass and
New Pass) and 16 aerial stud-
ies.
These indicated that about
77 percent of the boaters used
waters within 3 miles of local
inlets. He said this survey was
compared to another in 1995
and showed impressive in-
creases in boater traffic, espe-
cially in\enice Inlet. z -;
Englewood Community
Redevelopment Area Coord-
inator Chris Davis asked how
boat size was figured into
manatee injuries.
Osterhoudt said blunt-
force impacts are being stud-
ied to learn more about pro-
peller injuries inflicted on
manatee carcasses recovered
from area waters.
"It's hard to say right now
because the studies have not
been completed," he said.

Wellness center: A reality or broken dream?


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

It was January of 2001. The
high of winning a state cham-
pionship was still pumping
through the veins of Venice
High head football coach Nick
Coleman.
Always looking for ways to
improve the program, Cole-
man had a vision. Gone
would be the tiny, overcrowd-
ed, antiquated room where
grid players and all Indian
athletes for that matter -
did their weight training. In
its place would be a new,
spacious, on-campus "well-
ness center" that would be a
multi-dimensional weight
training/wrestling room/,
cheerleading practice area.
Coleman revealed his
dream to boosters and Line-
backer Club members that
fall.
The idea was received with
enthusiasm. The blueprints
were going to be drawn up.
Cost estimates were made.
Optimism abounded.
Coleman originally believ-
ed the ribbon cutting would
come by late 2004 maybe
early 2005.
Here it is almost the fall
of 2006, and there still are no
signs of even a groundbreak-
ing at the site. The decrepit,
old tennis courts remain.
To add insult to injury, the
price of the project has jump-
ed dramatically in three years.
"The whole thing frustrates
me," said Coleman, the highly
successful grid mentor. "This
thing should have been a
done deal. Here we are and
we're still in the old weight
room."
Coleman isn't being selfish
about the wellness center
concept, either.
"If you play a sport, it goes
through the weight room,
plain and simple," he said.
"We're talking about all the
girls sports, too. The wrestlers
would have a home. There
would be so many benefits
with the wellness center."
While the wellness center
dream is not dead, it has suf-
fered many detours and set-
backs along the road.
Right off the bat, the de-
sign of the project took much
longer than anticipated. The


final blueprints weren't com-
pleted until November of
2005.
The original cost estimate
made in October 2003 for the
8,400-square-foot building
was $365,000, or $43 per
square foot.
The original project budget
was $450,000. The school
board would kick in $150,000,
the Gulf Coast Community
Foundation would cover
$150,000, and the rest would
be raised by boosters and
donors.
The Sarasota School Board
approved the project in 2003.
Then the red tape started
to kick in.
The price has risen drp-
matically in three years.
Hurricane Charley, the
construction boom and infla-
tion has jumped the full
market price of the project to
$741,000, or $88 per square,
foot.
That's more than double
in just three years. That price
would likely kill the whole
enchilada.
Enter developet/builder
Mike Miller to the rescue. He
agreed to discount the price
and take on the project with
no profit or overhead for the
contractor.
That figure now rests at
$564,000.
"With the price from Mr.
Miller, we believe a realis-
tic budget would now be
$600,000," said local attorney
Wayne Hall, who has donat-
ed his services with .the hopes
of seeing the Wellness Center
go to fruition. "We have about
$450,000 in committed funds
at this point. We are asking
the school board to commit
an additional $150,000. so
this badly needed project
can be built."
This can be a sore spot.
County schools are already
dealing with budget cuts.
Teachers lost their jobs fol-
lowing the 2005-06 school
year.
Finding extra money for
Venice's wellness center cer-
tainly can't be high on the list.

letic director Pete Dombroski

center at VHS. The project still hasn't gotten off the ground after years of talk and planning.


done.
"It's a big time priority,"
he said. "We're searching
every avenue."
Up until 2004, the wrest-
ling team had its own port-
able to work out in. That was
taken away from them and
they were banished to tem-
porary homes in the old
weight room and south gym.
It looks like they'll have to
use the old south gym again
this school year.
"We're a building short,"
Dombroski said. "We know
it's a necessity. Unforeseen
things happened. I believe
it's-gonna get done.- just,
not as quick as people want."
The meeting Oct. 19
Venice High principal
Candy Millington said there
will be a meeting discussing
the future of the wellness
center on Thursday, Oct. 19,
at the school. Not only will
VHS officials be present, but
also county school board
bigwigs from The Landings.
"The purpose is to try to
make it go," Millington said.
"We are short. The campus
and student body need this.
We all want it. It's a rnecessity."

Over the past 11 years, Dan
Kelly has built the Venice
High wrestling program into
a statewide power.
The Indians are annually
ranked among the top 10
teams in Florida and Kelly and
his trusty staff have produced
five individual champions
over the past fiveyears.
SIn fact, the wresding pro-
gram is one of the most suc-
cessful athletic programs at
VHS.
All was happy back in the
day when the Indian mat-
men had their own wrestling
room a portable classroom
remodeled to suit the pro-
gram's need.
- It wasn't exactly pretty, but
it was a place to call home.
Then two years ago, the
wrestlers were rendered as
orphans.
"They tore down the port-
able," Kelly said.
The team was first moved


to the weight room, then to
the old south gym, where
athletes have to unroll and
roll up their mats before and
after practice.
If the projected wellness
center had been in place, the
wrestlers would have had
- their own space.
"This will be the third
year in a row we've been dis-
placed," Kelly said. "It's ruin-
ing our program. It's crushed
our morale and gutted ouir
team."
Things aren't likely to im-
prove for 2006-07.
"We've been offered a cou-
ple of places off campus,"
Kelly said. "One was an old
bar that's going to be demol-
ished. It's a joke."
It will be back to sharing
the south gym again.
"It's a short-term solution,"
Kelly said. "We're starting
from scratch. It's been a trail
of broken promises."
One that can only be solv-
ed with the wellness center
finally coming to fruition.


Ladies, perfect 10


Aquinas vs. Venice Act III


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


The Venice High volleyball
team stretched its season-
opening win steak to 10
Monday night, as the Lady
Indians repelled visiting
Bayshore in three straight
games, 25-11, 25-20, 25-17..
Venice coach Brian Wheat-
ley was able to give everyone
quality playing time against
the Lady Bruins. Hence, the
stat sheet was pretty well
balanced.
The three freshmen on the
squad all contributed. Outside
hitter Dorothy Rahal had nine
kills. Middle Jillian Allen had
four kills and five blocks.
Setter Taylor Capasso ran the
offense like a veteran. She fin-


ished with 17 assists.
Of course, the regulars had
their moments in limited roles.
Middle Casie Richards had
seven kills and four blocks.
Sidekick Ashley Graf was also a
presence in the middle. Right
side Kaylee Ream had a good
night with five kills. Outside
Amanda Garofalo contributed
four kills.
Several Lady Indians served
the ball with precision, result-
ing in key runs. Casey Taylor,
Nickie Halbert, Capasso, Graf,
Allen and Garofalo registered
aces.
Bayshore (6-9), which has
nine seniors, played well in
spurts. Middle Lindie Morand
had 10 kills. Lefty Yolanda
Ibasfalear was tough at the
service stripe.

Some schools will go to
great lengths to play against'
top-notch competition.
Earlier this
season, Chiles
came down
from Tallahas-
see to Venice
for a volleyball '
match.
This Wed-
nesday, St.
Thomas
Aquinas will Wheatley
make the trip
over from Fort Lauderdale to
play the Lady Indians. Special
starting time is 5 p.m.
Venice, ranked No. 1 in
Class 5A, will take a 10-0


Graf steps up to become a force


record into Wednesday's
showdown.
Aquinas, ranked No. 10,
has defeated the Lady In-
dians the past two years -
during the regular season
last year and in a memorable
five-game state final match
in 2004.
"It will be a great test for
us," Venice coach Brian
Wheatley said. "They are
known for their net play.
They are one of the tallest
teams in the state. Their out-
sides hurt the ball."


Aquinas averages over 6-
feet up front. Outsides Paola
Ruiz and Katie Bradley are
top notch.
Aquinas is coached by
Lisa Zielinski, who has been
at the helm for 19 years. She
has guided the Lady Raiders
to two state titles in 1995
and 2004.
Aquinas has an 8-2 record
this season. The losses were
best of threes to Timber
Creek and Fort Myers.
The, Lady Raiders have
beaten some pretty good


teams, but the Lauderdale
area is not a hotbed for the
sport.
"We don't have a lot of
competition, so we try to get
good matches," Zielinski
said. "They will make you a
better team. Venice came to
visit us last year."
And now it's the Lady
Raiders turn to return the
favor.
There 'will be a Venice
Volleyball Boosters Club
meeting after the Aquinas
match.


VENICE HIGH

SCHOOL'S Athlete of the Week
Sophomore swimmer Tyler Revels has set a new school
record for the boys 100 beast stroke. His time is 1
minute, 3.21 seconds. The old record stood for 25 years
before Revels broke it in a meet in Punta Gorda.

The big question entering
this season for the Venice
High volleyball team is could
last year's reserves step up to
fill the shoes of graduated
Class 5A Player of the Year
Dana Dumas?
Casie Richards and Ashley
Graf have pretty much ans-
wered that with their play on
the court.


Graf is a 6-foot tall senior
whose game has matured big
time in the past year. As with
Richards, she has become a
force in the middle both
blocking and spiking the ball.
Last year, Graf played right
side for the state champion
Lady Indians.
"It's different," compared
Graf. "The middle is a lot
quicker. You're more a part of
offense and defense. I'm start-
ing to get used to it. I can only


get better."
The same applies for serv-
ing. Graf was admittedly just
average at the stripe, but has
stepped it up.
"I wasn't that good," she
admitted. "It's just practice."
Now, Graf is a threat to
serve up an ace every time
she steps up.
"Ashley has stepped up
her game," Venice head coach

Get your walking-around money for free


BY BOB FLISS
STAFF WRITER

For some consumers, auto-
mated teller machine fees
rank as one of life's wallet-
lightening annoyances.
But there are plenty of
ways to avoid these charges.
Indeed, those who stay close
to home should never have
to pay an ATM fee.
Things may be a little
more challenging for people
who travel a lot. But with a
little planning, paying an
ATM fee should be a rare
event.
Although media pundits
keep speculating about the
prospect of a "cashless soci-
ety," Americans have not
lost their desire for walking-
around money. This despite
the fact that retailers are
more willing than ever to
accept credit cards for even
the smallest purchases.
The bad news is that
withdrawing cash from a
"foreign" ATM foreign to
your bank's network, that is
- could cost maybe $4 a
transaction. Worst case, you
will be hit with processing
charges from both your bank
and the bank whose ATM
you're using. These fees are
rarely more than $2 a use,
and cover both the cost of
the transaction and a small,
profit to the bank.
Critics argue that because
ATMs are cheaper than live
tellers, all ATM transactions
should be available at no
charge. The usual counter-
argument is that banks are
no more obligated to let
noncustomers use their
ATMs than they are to cash
checks for anyone who
comes in off the street.
Recognizing that transac-
tion fees are justifiable but
unpopular, the entire bank-
ing industry is gradually
turning against de practice.
Narnv comrmunity bank-
charge their customers noth-
ing for withdrawals from
"foreign" ATMs, although
they may still have to pay a
fee to the bank that owns
the ATM.
Overall, banks large and
small are not so much re-
nouncing their ATM fees as
helping their customers find
ways to circumvent them.
This has been accomplished
by creating networks of co-
operating financial institu-


tions that waive all or part of
their fees.
Dodge the fees
Ultimately, there's no sub-
stitute for being an informed
banking customer. Here are
some strategies for avoiding
ATM charges:
As a rule, few banks
charge customers for with-
drawals or deposits from their
own ATMs. However, cus-
tomers should be aware that
there may be a charge for
premium services such as
mini-statements. The ma-
chine will usually inform the
customer when this is the
case.
Large institutions like
Bank of America or Wachovia
operate their own ATMs in
nearly all major Florida cit-
ies. Many customers pick
these institutions mainly be-
cause of this convenience.
Smaller community
banks are often members of
one or more of the many
ATM networks operating
across the nation. These net-
works have helped commun-
ity banks remain competitive
with larger institutions.
When opening an ac-
count, get the bank's fee
schedule. Read and under-
stand it.
Many banks offer a
monthly quota of free trans-
actions at "foreign" ATMs as
a benefit with certain premi-
um checking accounts. How-
ever, these accounts usually
require maintaining a mini-
mum balance.
Know the location of
your bank's ATMs both
where you live and places
you visit. This information is
available on the Internet or
by visiting your local bank
branch..
Know the location of
other cash machines that will
accept your bank's card at no
charge. The Presto! network
oM-ned b\ Pubjib Super Mlar-
kets Inc. is arguably ithe most
popular of these services in
Florida.
If you find yourself
stranded in a location where
you absolutely must pay an
ATM fee, remember that the
charge is usually a flat fee
per transaction. Therefore,
it's cheaper to withdraw
$200 than $20.
Understand that an ATM
card can also be used as a
debit card at many retailers,

AmSouth Bank are not cur-
rently listed as members,
according to Publi:. Howev-eer,
Patten said that Publix akes
thi, service available to
banks and credit unions at'
no charge, and continues to
accept new members.
But where Presto! really
comes into its own is in
leveling the playing field be-
tween super-regional and
community banks. Consid-
ering that Publix is, in nearly
every Florida community, the
fact that community banks
can't be everywhere becomes
less of a problem.


Other smaller local insti-
tutions that are part of Presto!
are Englewood Bank, Penin-
sula Bank, First Community
Bank of America, Marine
Bank, and Tarpon Coast Na-
tional Bank. Florida Com-
munity Bank is not currently
a member.
Consumers who can't ob-
tain Presto! access through
their banks may be able to
get a card if they are mem-
bers of a credit union. In
fact, the vast majority of the
1,500 Presto! members are
credit unions. Among those
o6p'era tig locally are Florida
Central Credit hUnion and
GTE Federal Credit Union.
Who charges what?
Here's a summary of what
local banks are charging
for transactions at "foreign"
ATMs. Keep in mind that
banks can only control their
own fees, so customers
need to know their own
bank's policy and that of the
bank whose ATM they're
using.


Colonial Bank, $3.
BankUnited, $1.
AmSouth bank, $2.
, *Wachovia, $2.
Bank of America, $2.
SouthTrust Bank, $2.
RBC Centura Bank, $2.
None of these banks
charges customers for using
their own ATMs.
Even without one of your
bank's ATMs or a Presto!
machine nearby, there are
other strategies to withdraw
cash at no cost.
Consumers shouldn't for-
get that their ATM card is
also a debit card. Not only
are more merchants accept-
ing debit cards, some \ill
even ask whetherr the cus-
tomer wants cash back with
their purchase.
This isn't just a matter of
providing great customer
service. By reducing the
amount of cash they have
on hand, customers also
may feel more secure.

Sarasota County purchases Old Miakka tract


STAFF REPORT


Sarasota County announc-
ed Tuesday it had purchased
property in the Old Miakka
protection priority site near
the eastern end of Fruitville
Road.
The 129-acre parcel sale
closed on Aug. 31 for just
more than $4.1 million as part
of the county's Environmen-
tally Sensitive Lands Protec-
tion Program.
The 1,374-acre Old Miakka
protection site extends south
to Myakka River State Park
and contains lands protected


by the Crowley Museum and
Nature Center and The Great
Outdoors Conservancy. It also
provides habitat for a diversi-
ty of Florida wildlife, includ-
ing scrub jays, gopher tortois-
es, eastern indigo snakes,
wading birds, raptors and
Sherman fox squirrels.
'Acquiring this land will
protect high-quality scrub
habitat in the northeastern
corner of the county," said
Program Coordinator Brooke
Elias in a press release.
"Scrubby and pine flatwoods,
mesic hammock, and hard-
wood swamp habitats also


occur on this parcel."
This is the county's first
Environmentally Sensitive
Lands purchase within the
Old Miakka site, which has
been on the protection prior-
ity list since the program's
inception.
The county bought the land
from James, Stacie and Edward
O'Neill, who have owned the
land for many years.

Venice Area Board of
Realtors has a lot to celebrate
these days.
For starters, it will mark its
50th anniversary tomorrow
night at the Jacaranda West
Country Club. Festivities
begin at 5:30 p.m. with a brief
business meeting to elect
2007 officers and directors.
The occasion will offer a
chance to celebrate 50 years
of accomplishments and
contemplate what to expect
in the future.
The board is riding high
after this past weekend's
showing at the Florida
Association of Realtors. For
the 14th time in the past 16
years, the Venice Area Board
of Realtors received the
Board Achievement Award
from the Florida Association
of Realtors for being the best
board in the medium size
category.
The award is based on
activity from June 1, 2005,
through May 31, 2005, and
encompassed the presiden-
cies of Brian R. Meurs and
David Cromwell.
Judging is based on activi-
ty and accomplishments of
members, activity in the
community, and at the state
and national level. Members
received the award at the
annual FAR Convention held
in Hollywood.
This brings the total to 15
achievement and 17 educa-
tion awards more
than any
other :

"This accom-
plishment will allow
members to share
MLS data and provide more
exposure to market proper-
ties among the cooperating
members, said David
Cromwell, president ofVABR.
"This is a win-:win situa-
tion for not only Realtors but
for sellers and buyers as
well."
The data share concept
came into play because of
the desire to cooperate while
maintaining different MLS
vendors, he said.
Participating associations
will include Sarasota,


Englewood, Punta
Gorda/Port Charlotte/North
Port, Cape Coral, Bonita
Springs, Fort Meyers, Naples
and Venice.
Involved
The board was first char-
tered in 1956 by the National
Association of Realtors. A
spinoff of the Sarasota Board
of Realtors, VABR built its
own facility on Substation
Road in 1981. They're com-
pleting a feasibility study for
a new building, because
they've outgrown their pre-
sent building, according to
Cromwell.
Cromwell is proud of the
fact its board has become
very active in local affordable
housing. The VABR recently
co-sponsored an Affordable
Housing Forum with other
organizations and associa-
tions in the county.
Members are also
involved in other community
organizations related to
housing, including smart
growth initiatives and other
organizations that encourage
affordable housing projects.
They recently.made a
commitment to raise $85,000
to build a Habitat house in a
new townhouse project
,being planned in the Venice
area, Cromwell said.
A kickoff party netted
more than $7,500
toward the pro-
ject. .


\r-
VABR
raised $23,000 in
scholarships for local
students for college during
the past year. The board
holds an annual golf outing
to raise the funds. That pro-
gram is supplemented by
educational program pro-
ceeds and auctions.
Other community activi-
ties include cleaning the
beach, painting homes for
elderly, disabled or needy
residents, holding food dri-
ves and stuffing Christmas
stockings for the Salvation
Army. They even collect a
variety of items for various
organizations, like newspa-
pers for the Shriners, printer

went for $58,000 and 17 per-
cent interest rates.
When she joined VABR,
the latest technological
advance was the IBM
Selectric typewriter with its
nifty correcting tape.
She remembers when the
MLS books came out every
other week.
"The information would
already be two weeks old,"
she said. "Over a hundred
Realtors would converge on
the building to get their
hands on the MLS book."
Today, the MLS is avail-
able online and the hordes of
Realtors are gone.

"I really miss the captive
audience," Merkle said. "It
was a good chance convey
association information to
the membership."
Merkle estimates Realtors
account for about half of all
home sales. The MLS is
mainly (about) resale. The
rest is sold by builders who
sell their own products and
people who sell their own
homes, she said.
Ups and downs
VABR came into being
shortly after a boom in South
Venice that would change
the face of real estate in
Florida.
Authors GeorgeYoungberg
Sr. and Earl Aumann (Venice,
1969) trace Venice real estate
booms back to 1947 after
WWII when the federal gov-
ernment found itself with a
huge investment (former US
Army Air Base built in Venice
in 1941) of idle land and
costly upkeep.
A large part of the base
was deeded to the city with-
out cost as a municipal air-
port.
'Another economic lift
came in 1952 when the W&A
Construction Co. of NewYork
bought a large tract of land
on Tamiami Trail just south
of the city and started a
nationwide advertising cam-
paign offering 40-foot lots at
$200 each in a new subdivi-
sion called South Venice,"


said the authors.
"The response was phe-
nomenal," they wrote. "With
the confidence inspired by
the sponsorship of the Venice
Area Chamber of Commerce,
a total of 19,700 lots were
sold in a little over two years.
Buyers by the hundreds
started pouring into the area
by bus, train and automobile.
The sale of the lots sparked
the present development of
the entire central west coast
of Florida.
"The success of the South
Venice venture provided the
incentive that subsequently
brought dozens of home
building subdivisions into
being from one of Sarasota
County to the other. In those
eight years of formative
growth (1954-61) nearly 500
residences were built in
South Venice and 667 new
homes within the Venice City
limits."
In 1960 Ringling Bros.
Barnum & Bailey Combined
Circus brought their winter
home to Venice.
"The Greatest Show on
Earth was moving its winter
quarters to Venice Municipal
Airport after 32 years in
Sarasota," they wrote.
It made the city of
Sarasota and it can do the
same forVenice, said the
executive secretary and
mangers of Sarasota County
Chamber of Commerce
when it happened. By 1954,
the population had jumped
from 863 credited to the city
in 1950 to 2,207 according to
a survey by the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce.
It was this kind of growth
to led to establishing VABR.
Merkle credits the recent
real estate frenzy with more
than doubling its member-
ship. The number of paid
members and associate
members rose from 450 to
over 1,000 in just the last
three years, Merkle said.
Mirroring the cyclical
nature of the business, she
doesn't expect that to last.
"I wouldn't be surprised if
we lose 20 percent of our
members by the time dues
come out," she said.
But that doesn't dampen
Merkle's spirit. Plenty of
Realtors have weathered the
ups and downs of the real
estate market, and have done
quite well over the years, she
points out.
It's the quality of the
membership that counts, not

Venice charter school ranked in

top 75 middle schools in Florida

STAFF REPORT the principles of scholarship, Civil Air Patrol, Spanish, art,
lL"ri rl-.n q t -t.n lr.o T oc Tli dr hin o s. E <,'lnni PP


The Student Leadership
Academy of Venice recently
received notification from
Gov. Jeb Bush that the school
was being honored as one of
the top 75 high-performing
middle schools in the state of
Florida. The recognition was
based on the total points the
school received on grading
criteria and on outstanding
achievement during the
2005-2006 academic year.
"I am so proud of our staff
and our students," said Vickie
Marble, principal of the
school. "We all worked in-
credibly hard last year and it's
nice to know that our efforts
paid off."
SLA is now in its third year
of operation. It is a public
charter .school founded on


ieaIerU.s O C-LU O rvLce. J-LasOL
year, someone coined the
nickname 'The Little School
That Could,' and I think it's
appropriate," said Trina Aker,
a teacher at the school. "My
son has been here since day
one, and it seemed that no
one believed we could suc-
ceed. I am. thrilled that we
have proven that the vision
for the school is sound and
that we are finally being rec-
ognized as a wonderful, high
achieving school."
"The school provides an
alternative tp the huge mid-
dle school setting, by offering
small class sizes in an inti-
mate learning environment,"
Marble said.
In addition to a rigorous
academic program, the
school offers electives such as


JmusLO UrLLL cJL IUJ. LO, .. ru I
health, creative writing and
journalism.
The school also offers a
variety of clubs, including
National Junior Honor So-
ciety, Builders Club, Environ-
mental Club, Scrapbooking
Club, Dance Club, Jewelry
Making, Intramurals, FROGS,
Debate Club, Guitar Club,
Book Club, Archeology and
Chess.
The school is publicly
funded and privately run by a
governing board consisting of
members from the commu-
nity.
Students do not pay
tuition.
The school has a few open-
ings for sixth grade. The sev-
enth- and eighth-grade class-
es are full with a waiting list.

Venice High School JROTC at triathalon


STAFF REPORT


Members of the Venice
High School JROTC were
working at the South County
Triathalon earlier this month
held at Sharky's On the Pier.
Students who volunteered
helped coordinate parking
and assisted with transition
points.


Bob Reed, senior instruc-
tor for the JROTC, said that
leadership education is what
they teach. He added that
threy are trying to build future
leaders. By participating in
local events, such as the
YMCA triathalon, students
expand their knowledge by
giving back to the communi-
ty.


He said that the JROTC it is
a leadership building pro-
gram that prepares students
to go into various jobs in ser-
vice and business. The pro-
gram also prepares them to
go into the military, if that is
what they desire to do.
Many future events are
scheduled for the coming
semester.

Motivation and respect keys to learning


LYNN REIFET
( I:SP^N ,-


* Two major factors influ-
encing students' behavior are
self-motivation and respect
for teachers. If you sense, or
have been told, that your
child lacks one of these, the
problem may have originated
at home. It can also be helped
at home.
If your child doesn't seem
to care about schoolwork, he
may actually be covering up
the fact that it is too difficult
for him. Parents can have a
gut-level instinct that some-
thing isn't'right, and some can
even pinpoint the skill that is
lacking once they become
more involved in the home-
work process.
Ask for more reading aloud
now and then, so you can look
and listen for problems.
Watch his attempts'at math.
By communicating with the
child's teacher and watching
and listening to the child talk
about class work, you may
gather clues as to why moti-
vation is so low.
You can take action to
ensure a change in attitude by

providing extra assistance. If
the lack of motivation was
related to a lack of skills the
extra help, i.e., tutoring, could
resolve the problem.
Some of us might take for
granted that, with the tech-
nology boom and instant
access to information, our
children are getting the mes-
sage that school is important.
But unless he hears it explicit-
ly from someone who matters
to him, a child might think
that passing classes is a divine
right. It is possible that his
lack of motivation stems from
not receiving a clear message
from the adults in his life
about the importance of edu-
cation.
How do you handle your
child's negative behavior
toward school? Do you find
yourself making excuses for
his classroom behavior by
saying, "He's bored?" Or, "It
must be because of a person-
ality conflict with the
teacher?"
Without realizing it, you
might be handing your child
excuses for not making an
effort. Your message to him
about school and teachers
can give him a legitimate
handicap in the classroom.
Ask yourself if you have
spoken disrespectfully about
a teacher in front 'of your
child. Has your child been
present during a confronta-
tional' conversation with his
teacher?
If the answer to either of
these questions is yes, it is
likely that your child will fol-

low your lead in the class-
room.
Save any complaints you
might have regarding the
teacher, school or classroom
issues for a time when you
can have a private discussion
with the teacher. Additionally,
for the child's sake, be open to
the teacher's comments
about your child's behavior in
the classroom. It may help to
listen, and take time to think,
before responding with an
excuse.
Once affected, a child's
motivation and -respect for
teachers will not naturally
improve over time. Effective
intervention by the adults in
his life is a necessity. Parents
are still the No. 1 influence in
a child's life.
Your ability to stay objec-
tive, even when a teacher
seems especially difficult to
work with, will model valu-
able lessons about negotia-
tion, and reinforce the impor-
tance of school.
Academic motivation and
respect for teachers are defi-
nitely major prerequisites for
all students.

WELL BEING


First mental health fair promotes program awareness


BY COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER


Sometimes families need a
little help, especially when
they are first starting out.
Sarasota and surrounding
counties have a wealth of ser-
vices for families looking to
improve or just get a little
help. Many of these services
are not well known, or worse,
they fall apart because people
who can help, including refer-
ral agencies, don't know
about them.
Help has come now in the
form of a $9 million grant
awarded by the federal Sub-
stance Abuse and Mental
Health Services Adminis-
tration, called SAMHSA. The
$9 million grant, called the
SAMHSA grant, is for the pur-
pose of helping transform
children's mental health care
through creating a "system of
care." A system of care is
defined as a spectrum of
mental health and non-men-
tal health services, which are
coordinated into a network
that better melds the many
and changing needs of chil-
dren and their families., -
The system is designed to
help cover all bases of family
care, ensuring that no fami-
lies fall through the cracks of
the system.
Human services manager
Chip Taylor serves as the prin-
ciple investigator who is ad-
ministering this sizable grant.
Sherry Crelin is the com-
munications coordinator for
the Sarasota County Health
Department. On Sept. 5, she
facilitated the first mental
health fair for the public.
' "The fair was held at the
request of the education
department. The teachers

wanted to know what services
are available in the communi-
ty," Crelin said.
According to Crelin, the
Florida Center for Child and
Family Development is the
lead agency for the grant. She
also said that TFC is well
versed in mental health.
TFC is the first place fami-
lies will go, and then, based
on their needs, they will be
referred to varying programs
that can help them.
I Crelin also said that when
families are assessed, they are
not simply picked apart,
pointing out only the nega-
tive.
"They look at the needs of
the family, find out what their
strengths are, and then they
fill in the gaps," Crelin said.
The grant focuses on chil-
dren ages 0-8 years, and it is
the first of its kind. The grant

If you


S are a high
school athlete who has
' I sustained a head injury,
you might get the notion
that there is something
"heroic" about immediately
Returning to the game. The fact is,
however, that a second concussion
may prove to be far worse than the
first. A rare but potentially fatal
condition known as "second-impact
syndrome" can occur when an athlete
who has suffered a concussion
experiences a second blow while the
brain is still vulnerable. The second blow
does not have to be very strong for its
effects to be deadly or permanently
disabling. It is estimated that more than
300,000 sports- and recreation-related
traumatic brain injuries occur in this
country annually. There is nothing
heroic about that statistic.

P.S. A concussion is a type of
traumatic injury that occurs when a
blow jostles the brain inside the skull.

Beware of those brainy bugs


DAVE BARRY
j^.^^HiT


This classic Dave Barry
column was originally pub-
lished Aug. 25, 1996.

Today's science topic is: In-
sect Intelligence. I don't know
about you, but I've always
taken comfort in the idea that
insects are stupid. For exam-
ple, if I'm outdoors and a bee
lands on me and starts walk-
ing around on my head -
causing me to turn rigid with
fear, terrified that, if I move,
the bee will become angry
and sting me in the eyeball -
I've always reassured myself
by thinking: "This bee does
not wish to harm me! Its tiny
brain is confused! It thinks I
am a flower!"
But now I have received,
from alert reader Greg Stev-
ens, a news item by the Reut-
ers (pronounced 'Associated
Press") news service concern-
ing an experiment, conduct-
ed by bee scientists at the Free
University of Berlin, suggest-
ing that bees are not so dumb
after all.
The article states that these
scientists, whose names are
Lars and Karl, set up various
landmarks between,a beehive
and a bee feeder. After the
bees had located the feeder,


Lars and Karl started chang-
ing the locations of the feeder
and landmarks. The surpris-
ing result: Lars and Karl were
both killed by eyeball stings.
No, seriously, they discov-
ered that the bees were locating
the feeder by counting the
landmarks.Yes! Bees can count!
This means that bees, in terms
of math skills, are ahead of
most American high school
graduates. It also means that,
contrary to my earlier belief,
when a bee is walking around
on my head, it knows exactly
where it is and what it's doing.
It's thinking:
"Ha ha! He thinks I'm look-
ing for a flower, when in fact I
am here for the express writ-
ten purpose of watching him
turn rigid with terror while I
poop in his hair! I can't wait to
get back to the hive and tell
everybody the landmark
coordinates for this bozo!"
The German discovery
makes you wonder what else
bees have been hiding from
us. For example: I have always
wondered how 'they really
obtain honey. I do not believe
that they make it themselves.
What would they use for
utensils?
I've never made honey, but
I have made fudge, which
belongs to the same chemical
family (technically, the "Fam-
ily Of Things You Can Put On
Ice Cream") and I know for a
fact that you need, at mini-
mum, a stove and a candy
thermometer. My guess is, if
you were to poke around in
the bushes near a beehive,
you'd find piles of empty plas-
tic squeeze bottles shaped
like little bears.
But here's what really con-
cerns me: If bees can count, the


logical assumption is that they
can also read. Therefore, I wish
to make a sincere an-
nouncement to any bees walk-
ing around on this publication:
I did not blow up the hive near
Evan Thompson's house in
Armonk, N.Y, in 1961. I was
present, but it was Evan who lit
the cherry bomb. Please do not
hurt me. It is very funny when
you poop in my hair. Ha ha! I
believe Evan still lives in the
New York metropolitan area.
Thank you.
Here is another troubling
thought: Bees are not the only
smart insects. I have here an
item from a 1995 issue of
Popular Science, alertly sent in
by Frank Schropfer, which
states that cockroaches can
display intelligent behavior
even when their heads have
been removed. I don't know
about you, but I didn't even
know cockroaches had heads. I
thought that, as members of
what biologists call the "Family
of Animals That It Is Morally
OK To Drop An Unabridged
Dictionary On," cockroaches
were just icky little brown bod-
ies with legs and feelers sticking
out. But it turns out that they
do have heads, and according
to Popular Science, they "can
live for several days" without
them.
But here's the amazing
thing: Researchers have found
that cockroaches, when their
heads are removed, immedi-
ately start performing country-
style line dances.
No, seriously, Popular Sci-
ence states that headless cock-
roaches can, when prompted
by electrical shocks, learn to
run a maze. Without heads,
they can learn a maze in 30
minutes. I seriously doubt


that headless humans could
beat that time, although just
to be sure we should definite-
ly run some experiments
using volunteer Tobacco
Institute scientists.
I also think we should find
out what, exactly, the re-
searchers do with the cock-
roach heads. You would defi-
nitely want heavy security for
those babies. You would not
want them to fall into the
wrong hands.
TV NEWS ANCHOR: In our
top story tonight, terrorists
have threatened that, unless
the United States government
gives them Cincinnati, they
are going to dump cockroach
heads into the nation's vul-
nerable supply of movie pop-
corn. We now go live to the
White House press secretary,
who has a statement.
PRESS SECRETARY: I'm
going to throw up.
In conclusion, we see that
the issue of insect intelligence
is not as simple as we thought
it was before we started to
think about it. So the next
time a mosquito lands on our
arm, and we are tempted to
whack it, we should pause
and remind ourselves that the
mosquito is a thinking being
just like us, and that with
proper training and encour-
agement it might be able not
only to count and run mazes,
but perhaps also to laugh, to
sing, to philosophize, even to
write poetry.
And then we should whack
it. Because we hate poetry.
