Inventor frustrated over



lack of red tide funding


Local schools



emphasize



campus safety


And now that Bob Rigby's secret formula for
killing red tide is public, it may be harder to.
raise the cash to pursue it.


BY GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER


Inventor Bob Rigby has a
secret formula to kill red
tide without causing what
he considers significant
damage to other marine
creatures.
But, Rigby said, he has
grown frustrated, since he
began research on his red
tide cure seven years ago,
over the reluctance of Mote
Marine Laboratory and the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Research Institute to fund
the development of his
invention.
"I said I had a cure for red
tide and they didn't want
anything to do with it," he.
said of the FFWRI.
He also said Mote scien-
tists only offered to work
with him on the research if
he let them take credit for
the discovery.
Richard Pierce, a Mote
research director, however,
said Mote couldn't work
with Rigby because he
refused to disclose the com-
pound he uses. to kill red
tide organisms. Occupa-
tional safety rules require
such toxic materials disclo-
sures, he said. .
Rigby also said a group
called Solutions to Avoid
Red Tide was willing to sup-
port his research. But Rigby
walked away from the pro-
posed partnership after the
group altered a "nondisclo-
sure" agreement he had
drafted to eliminate his


right to sue the group if it
disclosed his secret formu-
la.
So, last July, Rigby ap-
plied for patents for both
the formula and an appara-
tus he designed to disperse
it in the sea. He's also
applied for a certification to
seek patents in 26 other
countries.
Now, his discovery is for
sale to the highest bidder.
The secret ingredient
Only one problem.
The patent application
for the formula was posted
on the U.S. Patent Office's
Web site. As a result, red
tide treatment scientists
around the world now can
find out the formula's secret
ingredient bleach.
Technically, the formula
calls for either a 5-percent
or a 15-percent concentra-
tion of sodium hypochlo-
rite, which is commonly
known as bleach. The re-
maining 95 percent or 85
percent of the formula con-
sists of a solution of "conta-
minated water" including
"un-ionized water, sodium
carbonate and sodium
chloride."
It's the concentration of
the sodium hypochlorite
with the contaminated
water that makes the for-
mula unique, Rigby said.
"To say it's just bleach
isn't correct," he said.
But, to Bill Richardson,
marine research associate
for the FWRI, sodium

op a red tide organism killer.

hypochlorite is still bleach
by any other name.
"(The patent applica-
tion) talks about the killer
compound and a dispens-
ing mechanism, it talks
about 5 and 15 percent
sodium hypochlorite," said
Richardson. "We use that to
disinfect drinking water in
emergencies ... We use it in
the laboratory to disinfect,


or to kill an organism."
Collateral damage
Red tide in local waters is
a bloom of a single-celled
species of sea animal called
Karenia brevis. The. species
produces a toxin that caus-
es respiratory problems.

Three deadly school shoot-
ings in Colorado, Pennsyl-
vania and Wisconsin in one
week have put school safety
on, radar across the nation
and in Sarasota County.
"We have more eyes and
ears on campuses than al-
most ariy other county in the
state," said Sarasota County
Sheriff's Lt. Tim Enos, assis-
tant bureau commander of
the School Resource Officer
program. "We have a very
proactive SRO program with a
tremendous amount of train-
ing."
The shooting at the Amish
school in Pennsylvania that
has so far caused seven
deaths, including the shooter,
raises an interesting question
that only the Amish can
answer.
"They didn't have any
school security," he said, "and
no communication."
The Amish shun the mod-
em way of life, including tele-
phones. It is unclear whether
the Oct. 2 tragedy will prompt
the Amish to rethink school
safety procedures.
Trust and confidence
Enos said one of the keys to
a safer school campus is the
students themselves.
"We start very early on
with our Officer Friendly pro-
gram trying to build trust and
confidence with the stu-
dents," Enos said, "so if they
see something that doesn't
look right on campus they'll
come to us."
That way, he said, the SROs
and school officials can take
appropriate action before an
incident happens.
Enos said another impor-


BE INFORMED
Student safety is on the minds
of all parents in America fol-
lowing a deadly rash of school
shootings leaving a dozen stu-
dents and three adults dead.
No one can offer an iroi-clad
guarantee that your child will
always be safe, but being an
informed parent is a good first
step.

tant tool in shoring up cam-
pus safety is the SRO pro-
gram.
He said' every high school
has two full-time SROs. There
are a total of 29 for theicounty,
six in North Port, and two in
Venice (The SRO at Venice
Elementary splits his time
between VEM and another
elementary school). -
Additionally, students and
faculty are encouraged to call
the BE BRAVE HOTLINE
((877) 723-2728)) and Crime
Stoppers ((941) 366-TIPS
(8477)) with tips. Enos said
police and school officials fol-
low up on all tips.
Unsystematic system
There also are the campus
security officers with their
bright yellow shirts, blue
slacks, and.golf carts.
"They do what is called an
unsystematic-system way of
patrolling," Enos said.. "They
do not run patterns, so you
never know where they might
turn up."

Venice City Council is close
to approving a Code of
Conduct and Ethics \ that
would apply to elected offi-
cials, appointed board mem-
bers, former employees, vol-
unteers and even contractors
who do business with the city,
as well as to active employees.
The ordinance, introduced
by the City Manager Marty
Black, comes up for a final
vote Oct. 10.
"We are trying to make the
city ofVenice a model of good
government," said Black, "by
establishing standards and
expectations which apply
across the board to anyone
who in. any way participates
in the city's governance or
operations.
"Our emphasis," he said,
"is on giving a positive and
clear picture of the values and
behavior which is expected,
rather than just telling people
what they can't do."

Venice City Manager Marty Black presents information on the

employees Tuesday. The ordinance comes up for a final vote in
the Oct. 10 city council meeting.


its employee orientation and
training materials some time
ago. The initials stand for
Productive, Responsible,
Innovative, Dedicated and
Ethical the characteristics
that should be demonstrated
consistently by anyone who
represents the city.
The new policy explains
what each term means, and
how it can be applied to
everyday situations. Then it
sets out examples of the kinds
of behavior that will charac-
terize people who put the
philosophy into practice.
"Most agencies simply
refer to the state code of
ethics," said Black. "We may
be the only local government
agency which has decided to
go beyond that basic require-
ment. ... (We) could see that
clearer guidance is required
for people to understand in
practical terms what it means
to be ethical."
Post-termination
The policy also lists con-
duct that is "prohibited" and
"impermissible," both during
employment or volunteer
service and after leaving such
service.


For example, for a period
of two years following termi-
nation ("leaving city service"
in any manner), a person may
not become involved in "mat-
ters involving the city" which
had previously been within
his/sher jurisdiction, and may
not become a consultant or
vendor for materials or ser-
vices to the city.
It also outlines the formal
complaint process, including
the investigation and disposi-
tion of such complaints.
"Employees would be sub-
ject to discipline up to and
including termination," Black
said, "those in voluntary or
appointed positions could be
removed from their positions,
and civil fines up to $10,000
could be levied, depending
on the situation.
"In addition," he said, "any
contractor violating the code
could have their contracts
terminated, and would be
excluded from bidding on
future city contracts for up to
five years."

cludes with language protect-

Emergency funding necessary for wastewater treatment plant


From the Oct. 8, 1981, Gondolier


BY RAY PORTER

Mayor Frank Proctor

"critical" and said the city

allowing funds for necessary
repairs at the beleaguered
plant.

estimated $370,000 must be
undertaken immediately if
the city hopes to avoid legal
action by the state Depart-
ment of Environmental Reg-
ulation (DER) after numerous
breakdowns at the plant
pushed plant standards be-
low state requirements.
The city has been waiting
for federal funding under
the 201 program to become
available before initiating
corrections at the plant. But


three weeks ago the situation
at the plant became unac-
ceptable and the DER reject-
ed two connection applica-
tions for local developers.
"I don't know what has
brought us to this position,
but I expect we'll get the
answer on Thursday (today),"
said the mayor. The council
has called a special meeting
at 1:30 today to approve the
required emergency funding.
"I hope to get some ans-
wers to some very hard ques-
tions," said Mayor Proctor. "I


want to know what has
brought us to this position.
Has this been caused by nor-
mal wear and tear on the
system, by negligence or
what? This is a pretty big
hunk of money we're talking
about and it will set,us back."
The city has an estimated
reserve of more than $1.8 mil-
lion in the enterprise opera-
tions, and the money to cor-
rect the present difficulties
will come from that cash
carry-forward.

Groundbreaking for Fire Station 3

They got their trail boss.
Officials from North Port,
Venice and Sarasota County
have unanimously selected
attorney Linda Shelley to
serve as facilitator in the
crafting of joint planning
agreements to coordinate
regional growth.
"We need a strong trail
boss," said County Adminis-
trator Jim Ley when city and
county officials met to dis-
cuss candidates recently.
Shelley laughed Monday
when told of Ley's analogy.
"He must have been talk-
ing to my children," she said.
"I wouldn't say I'm bossy, but
I am direct."
Shelley, who began her
duties Tuesday, has ample
credentials.
She headed the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs from May 1992 to
August 1995 and served as
general counsel to the agency

Corrections
Due to reporter error, the
cost of county flu shot clinic
flu shots was incorrect in the

cost is $25-$30, depending
on the flu shot provider.

the process," Shelley said.
"They will vote for an agree-
ment that hey consider .o be
in the best interests o' the
citizens and residents of their

it isn't, they won't vote for it."
Shelley believed' that a

Boone: Sorrento


Ranches for sale


BY MARY APOSTOLU
STAFF WRITER

Tuesday's Venice Planning
Commission meeting provid-
ed the answer to the question
that's been on many minds:
,Why the brouhaha surround-
ing the small 19.65-acre parcel
Sof property on Laurel Road?
A comp plan amendment
request for a change in density
:(up to 13 units per acre) had
,been submitted by S&J
!Properties, -which plans to
build 34-42 town homes with
four dwelling units contained
!in each.
I The planning commission
:unanimously voted to recom-
mend denial, so the develop-
:er petitioned city council.
When council members heard
;the argument, they approved
!it, based on what had already
been approved in the area
and their desire for consis-
tency. But that left planning
commissioners shaking their
heads and wondering what
had changed since their
vote.
According to Jeff Boone,
attorney for S&J Properties,
the difference was visible on
a map.
S&J's petition had been
opposed throughout the re-
view process by the Sorrento
Ranches Homeowners Asso-
ciation. Its argument was
that the S&J Project would
add unwanted traffic and
detrimentally affect their
quality of life.
Boone drew a crude map
Tuesday showing the loca-
tions of and higher densities


approved for adjoining prop-
erties, then dropped the
bombshell that the Sorrento
Ranches is for sale, with a
developer offering up to
$500,000 per acre. Boone
produced the tax assessment
for Robert Burrus, the presi-
dent of the association and
the most vocal objector,
showing his 5 acres purchased
in 2003 are currently valued
at $740,000. At the offer made
for the ranches, his land
would be worth $2.5 million,
Boone pointed out.
The parcel of land 'in
question is on Laurel Road,
just west of 1-75, next to
Sarasota Memorial Hospital's
land and east of Laurel
Nokomis School.
Across the street to the
northwest is county-owned
property already zoned for
up to 9 units per acre; across
the street to the northeast is
county-owned land designat-
ed for a future commercial
center.
Southeast is the develop-
ment project Villa Lago;
behind it is a 175-foot FP&L
easement that separates the
S&J property from Sorrento
Ranches.
When Villa Lago builds
out, it will be a gated commu-
nity with access to 'Border
Road. When S&J builds out,
it will have access to Laurel
Road. Sorrento Ranches
would have access only via
a two-lane county road,
Kirkpatrick Road.

CBS turns up the heat on reforms


Citizens for Better Schools is expanding
into a year-round operation. Its goal increase
external pressure on the education establishment
to ensure school reform success.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

It was a bit premature, but
Citizens for Better Schools
announced Monday it in-
tends to expand its sphere of
influence in education.
The community advocacy
group the same group that
took the lead in promoting
the extension of, a local
school tax is now setting
its sights on education
reform.
Carl Weinrich, who leads
the group, said CBS intended
to expand. later this month,
but due to school superinten-
dent Gary Norris' resignation,
decided to announce early.
The new CBS, Weinrich
said, will shift its role from
primarily supporting school
tax referenda to a year-round
organization that encourages
school reforms.
Weinrich said he wants to
support meaningful public
education reform by galvan-
izing political and education-
al institutions into positive
change.
"We have a superintendent
with a great vision who just
announced his resignation.
We have a new school board.
We have a plan NeXt Gen-
eration Learning. What we
lack is sufficient external
pressure to overcome intern-
al resistance," he said, refer-
ring to a string of school
reforms that have been
blocked or stymied at the
school level.
"We need a movement, not
just a campaign," he said.


The politics of education
CBS invited business lead-
ers, community advocates
and education foundation
presidents to its press confer-
ence Monday at the Greater
Sarasota Chamber of Com-
merce for slide presentations
and discussion on how to
move forward with reforms.
The group intends to build
a speakers bureau to help
market position papers with
key messages for public con-
sumption.
It also hopes to generate
media stories that focus on
"real" education issues, not
the politics of education.
That's easier said than
done because it's precisely
those key political leaders in
education, particularly the
"What we lack is
sufficient external
pressure to
overcome internal
resistance."
Carl Weinrich,

Better Schools


teacher union and school
board, who their constituents
look to for information and
to help form their own opin-
ions on reform and other
issues.
Weinrich was direct during
the discussion period in let-
ting union ,officials know
CBS intends to exert influence


on the union's role in reform.
He criticized decentralized
decision-making as a major
roadblock to school reforms.
Any business leader knows
"decentralization has way
more disadvantages than ad-
vantages," Weinrich said.
"We need to get off our
duff," he said. "We're just
going to have to take it on.
People in the school system
need to hear it from the
community."
Come together
But union leaders weren't
buying what CBS was selling.
Pat Gardner, president of
Sarasota Classified/Teachers
Association, said more and


more teachers are coming
on board with some of the
school reforms, like addition-
al training and block sche-
duling.
While she applauded CBS
for its advocacy, she said it
was unrealistic to expect
educators to give up all their
Saturday to make it work.
"There's not as many road-
blocks as they think," Gardner
said. "We are moving along."
Weinrich also had a mes-
sage for school board mem-
bers Carol Todd, Frank Ko-
vach, Laura Benson and in-
coming member Caroline
Zucker, in attendance. "The
board needs to come togeth-
er on this," he said.

of thousands of fish, crus-
taceans and sea mammals. It
also stinks up beaches with
rotting fish, and that chases
many tourists away.
The problem with treating
it with bleach is that the treat-
ment is likely to cause collat-
eral damage, Richardson said.
"It's a strong oxidant," he
said. "It will inactivate certain
cellular processes of bacteria.
It will kill a lot of things."
Rigby, however, empha-
sizes that his goal is to dis-
perse the chemical in con-
centrations high enough to
kill red tide organisms but low
enough to allow many other
fish to survive.
Red tides were blamed for
112 porpoise deaths, 85 man-
atee deaths and 612 turtle
deaths last year, Rigby point-
ed.
The loss of, say, 10 to 20
percent of the fish swimming
within a red tide may be an'
acceptable loss in order to
knock down the red tide with
his formula, he said.
Another problem with dis-
pensing chemicals to treat red
tide is the massive volumes
that would be needed, added
Pierce, the Mote research
director. He pointed out, at 10
parts per million, Rigby
would need to dispense 50
million gallons to treat a typi-
cal Florida red tide bloom
measuring 10 miles wide and
50 miles long.
The trick
Rigby, who also has invent-
ed a high-performance curb
and gutter cleaning machine,
began his research on red tide
in 1999 by hauling 5-gallon
buckets of tainted seawater to
his Nokomis garage.
Rigby has since teamed up
with a science class at Venice
High School to test the for-
mula. Using -beakers and
other equipment lent by
FWRI, the students first tested
the formula on red tide. They
found a concentration of 5
parts per million to 8 ppm
kills the organism.
The students also subject-
ed damsel fish, silversides fish
and opossum shrimp to the
formula. They found those
species survive higher con-
centrations, in some cases as
much as 15 parts per million.
The trick will be to disperse
the formula in seawater at
just the right concentration
that allows most of the fish to
survive, Rigby said.
Rigby and the school are
now working to get a local
laboratory to replicate the
research to confirm the
results, he said.
"I think it does have poten-
tial," said Charlie Powell, a
science teacher overseeing













S------ -


the testing. "The best thing
would be prevention, but pre-
vention would drastically
affect the economy. That's the
ideal but probably not
approachable for a long, long
time, if not forever."
To treat or study?
The idea of chemically
treating red tide has been
around since the'late 1940s,
when the state first tried dis-
pensing copper sulfate by
boat and airplane, said
Richardson. The experiment
was not well thought out, he
said.
"It killed all the red tide,
but it released a massive
amount of toxins at once and
that killed even more fish," he
said. "It was not successful at
all; in fact, it made things
worse."
In recent years, more state
and federal funding has been
directed to research methods
to control red tide.
The shift to "mitigation"
has come largely as the result
of a lobbying effort by the
group START.
The money has been used
to assess the economic im-
pact of red tide, study human
health risks and create plans
for a mitigation method using
clay, a waste product of phos-
phate mining.
Red tide particles get stuck
in the clay as it settles. The
method is used in some
countries in Asia. But scien-
tists still fear the toxins and
other pollutants may get
released from sediment.
Another method studied
recently involved injections of
ozone into the water. Ozone,
however, kills indiscriminate-
ly.
Now, scientists have begun
experimenting with bacteria
and other biological process-
es to see if they could gobble
up red tide organisms.
Meanwhile, Mote and
FWRI are continuing research
to detect red tide outbreaks
and determine what causes
them. Mote has developed its
"Brevbuster" device, which
gauges the concentration of
red tide organisms.
And FWRI has recently
funded a study of the nutri-
ents that fertilize red tide.
Rigby said he feels the
research industry has been
spending funds on endless
studies rather than develop-
ing ways to eliminate the
bane.
Richardson, however,
pointed out that any method
to kill red tide would require
knowing where it is bloom-
ing.
"To know that, you need
research and monitoring,
which is what Mote, FWRI
and others are researching,"
he said.

LaMorte awaits transfer from jail to prison


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

Convicted child molester
James LaMorte Sr. is still sit-
ting in the North County Jail
awaiting transport to the state
prison reception center in
Orlando.
On Sept. 19, LaMorte, 64, a
former Venice High School
swimming coach, was sen-
tenced to 21 years in prison
for molesting two former stu-
dents. The crimes happened'


more than 25 years ago.
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 length of time a con-
victed felon is held at the NCJ
before being transferred
varies. Some factors affecting
the move are prison popula-
tion, bureaucratic delays and


the type of crime.
Some local jail inmates are
held for weeks before being
transferred to the Central
Florida Reception Center
near Orlando for processing,
testing, indoctrination to
prison life, and assignment to
a permanent prison facility.
The length of time inmates
are held at the CFRC also
varies.
Depending on a variety of
factors, an inmate's request to
be assigned to a facility close


to his or her family may be
granted.
Former Garden Ele-
mentary School principal
Mark Cook, who was convict-
ed in May 2003 on two counts
of capital sexual battery on a
former student 25 years ago,
is serving two, 25-year terms
at Polk Correctional Institu-
tion in Central Florida.

Fire Prevention Open House set for Oct. 7


STAFF REPORT

The Sarasota County Fire
Department will host its
annual Open House from 10
a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 7,
at Fire Station 5, 400 North
Beneva Road.
The event is free and part
of the National Fire Pro-
tection Association's cam-
paign to raise awareness
about fire safety during Fire
Prevention Week.
This is the 85th year that
fire departments across the
country have observed Fire
Prevention Week, Oct. 8-14
this year. The campaign will
focus on the dangers of cook-
ing fires and teach people
how to prevent this type of
fire.
According to the; latest
NFPA research, cooking is the
leading cause of home fires.

One out of three home fires
start in the kitchen.
"Often when we're called
to a fire that started in the
kitchen, people tell us that
they only left the kitchen for a
few minutes," said Brian
Gorski, Sarasota County Fire
Chief. "Sadly, that's all it takes
for a dangerous fire to start.
We hope our message about
fire safety reaches all resi-
dents in our community so
they never have to experience
a fire-related injury or dam-
age to their home."
Gorski has these safety tips
to prevent a cooking fire from
ever occurring:
Stay in the kitchen when
frying, grilling, broiling or
boiling food.
Turn off the stove if leav-
ing the .room, even for a short
time.
Check food regularly


while it's cooking; stay in the
home; and use a timer as a
reminder.
Keep children away from
cooking areas by enforcing a

OUR IEdi ofv




It ime =o nalout red tide offensive


t's time to get serious about red tide.
For all the complaining, talking arid
studying of the toxic algae that has been
done, very little has been accomplished.
The red menace is a complex issue. Many
people want to blame it on runoff and the
nutrients released into our streams and estu-
aries from fertilizers. Others point to the fact
that red tide was documented centuries ago
- long before Florida turned into a develop-
er's dream with houses springing up all along
our waterfronts.
We admit there is merit to the argument
that red tide is a natural phenomena that has
been around seemingly forever. But the fre-
quency and severity of outbreaks cannot be
ignored or easily dismissed.
Mote Marine has secured millions of dol-
lars in federal funds to study the issue one


of several studies to document and seek the
root of the problem. But its studies have pro-
duced little as far as finding the source of the
problem or ways to attack it. Most of the
information has pointed to methods of
detecting outbreaks and alerting beachgoers
and others to its presence, not to making it go
away.
We need to be more aggressive.
Red tide is not just an inconvenience. It is
a serious threat to our state's economy and
our quality of life.
It's well documented that Florida has
more than its share of older citizens who are
more sensitive to the effects of red tide. It is
also well known that tourists prefer clean
beaches and clean air not beaches littered
with dead fish and caustic air that burns their
lungs and eyes.


We realize studies need to continue. But,
we call for our state legislators and represen-
tatives in Congress and the U.S. Senate to be
more aggressive in fighting the fish-killing
algae.
Recently, in a Sun roundtable discussion it
was pointed out that other nations espe-
cially Japan have had some success fight-
ing red tide. Japan has broken up outbreaks
by dumping clay-like material from air-
planes. Some suggest that a combination of
clay materials and algacidal bacteria could
work to break down the toxins. AVenice man
has come up with a concoction he believes
can kill red tide, and other treatments have
been discussed.
So far, no one has all the answers. What we
want to see is an all-out attack on red tide -
not just a continuation of discussions and


studies.
Local representatives have vowed to fight
for more funding. They need facts, however,
and someone to plan the attack. We agree
with our congressmen that little, can be
accomplished if no one is willing to put
together an action plan.
We should not be afraid of failure. For
example, if we dump clay on red tide and it
doesn't work, it gives us. that much more
information to add to the reams of material
studies have already produced. Even better,
this information is more tangible than sup-
positions of what might work or what might
be effective.
Red tide deserves our full attention and a
commitment to attack, not sit back and study
the problem while beachgoers hack and
cough their way to theme parks in Orlando.


A grand experiment,

in school improvement


DAVID DUNN-RANKIN



Our school systems in
Charlotte and Sarasota are
conducting a scientific exper-
iment with our children. The
conduct of this :experiment,
will affect the long-term well-
being of our children. The
school systems' experiment
works like this.
Our school systems have
chosen to allocate most of
their increase in funding
toward more money for
teachers. This is part of a
multi-year process where
teacher compensation is
raised faster than the rate of
inflation. Our school systems
believe that paying teachers
an ever-increasing amount of
money is the best way to lift
student achievement.
The ever-higher teacher
compensation might be the
correct strategy. Our school
systems certainly boast a ter-
rific track record, Sarasota
and Charlotte schools consis-
tently rank in the top 10 out of
67 school districts in the state
of Florida.
Some of that ranking has to
do with better -raw material
because of better income
demographics in Charlotte
and Sarasota. Some of the
superior state ranking is
because we generally have
had good stewardship of our
school systems.
The latest increase in local
teacher compensation is part
of a long-term commitment
by local school systems to put
most of their limited increase
in resources into higher
teacher pay.
Starting teachers in
Charlotte and Sarasota now
make 20 percent more than
the average liberal arts college
graduate.


Our teachers make 30 per-
cent more money when their
more lucrative fringe benefits
and retirement plans are
taken into account. They
make 40 percent more than.
the average liberal arts gradu-
ate when the actual days
worked are taken into ac-
count
Sarasota and Charlotte
teachers also make more than
other teachers across the
country. A starting teacher in
Charlotte County now makes
more money than a starting
school teacher in Massachu-
setts.
How long will we. be
required to allocate more and
more of our limited resources
toward higher teacher pay
instead of other alternatives?
Some argue that despite
continually increasing teach-
er pay we still have trouble
attracting and keeping teach-
ers locally. We will have no
choice but to continue raising
teacher compensation faster
than inflation.
Some argue that years ago
we attracted the best and
brightest to teaching and
could pay them less. Women
had few good career alterna-
tives to teaching. Now, to
attract the best and the
brightest to teaching, we will
keep raising teacher compen-
sation levels until we are
competitive for the top 20
percent of college graduates.
Those are both reasonable
arguments.
What is clear is that what-
ever argument is driving the
Charlotte and Sarasota school
systems, they are fully com-
mitted to the concept that
allocating the bulk of their
increase in funding toward
increasing teacher compen-
sation is the best way to suc-
cess. We won't know whether
they are right until many
years out in the future.
It's a grand experiment. We
all hope, for the sake of our
children, our school systems
have made the right choice.

her first term in the U.S.
Congress, she has accom-
plished more than others
with numerous terms.

Down Payment Act, one of
her first bills, became law in
2003. It was an innovative
plan to help thousands of
low-income Americans

Always a friend of veterans,
she also persevered until a
national cemetery was a real-

Democrats are the
party of appeasement
Editor:
In Congress, it finally came
down for the Democrats to
put up or shut up. And what
did many of them do? They
did their best to try and defeat
a bill that would benefit our
country when we are interro-
gating terrorists apprehended
either on the battlefield or in
raids either by us or other
countries.
As the vote unfolded, it
became obvious in listening
to Democratic congressional
leaders that if they could have
it their way, they would pro-
vide Constitutional protec-
tion to these individuals.
Forget the fact that these ter-
rorists want to destroy every-
thing about this country.
As one congressman stat-
ed referring to these Dem-
ocrats, "The next thing they
will want is to provide Mir-
anda warnings to these ter-
rorists."
In case we elect a Dem-
ocrat-controlled Congress
and White House, you can
rest assured this attempt at
appeasement will continue as
legislation will be passed for
all Americans to kneel down

Keep the gloves on, please


Now, gentlemen. I read a
recent editorial that deplored
the fact that no new candi-
dates had come forward to
run for the Venice City Coun-
cil against the incumbents.
After all, isn't that what our
democratic principles en-
courage?
Therefore, it seemed very
mean-spirited when I read
that a present city council
member made such a nasty
remark with regard to some-
one who accepted that chal-
lenge. I would like to know,
may we not expect a gentle-
man-like campaign, at least
for a local office?
Stay home. I was disap-
pointed to see that the city
manager of Sarasota was
backing the funds for the
sport stadium. I thought he
was an employee of the city of
Sarasota. He can spend their
money, but he should not be
down here telling the rest of
us how to spend our money. I
think it's a mistake.
Transfer needed. I would
like to suggest that the cross-
ing guard that's being elimi-
nated from Nassau Street be
relocated to the entrance on
Miami Avenue to Venice Ele-
mentary School. The parking
continues to be a fiasco there
because of the poor planning
and design of the exit and
entrance to the school. Let's
use our employees wisely, not
eliminate them. Use them
where they could be benefi-
cial.
Butts out. Isn't it sad that
the city puts smokeless ash-
trays by the children's foun-
tain? That should be a no-
smoking area. We don't want
our children playing in
smoke-filled atmospheres.
Let's make that a no-smoking
section right now.
Free hand. I wonder how
many people have read the
article regarding President
Busth's ''.o-hments about'
transferring al-Qaida prison-
ers to our military control in
Cuba. It seems that this presi-'
dent has a free hand in every-
thing. I wonder what his mind
really tells him.
Unacceptable. I have a
business on U.S. 41 in No-
komis, and I just can't believe
the number of days that go by
where I don't see a worker.
This is killing my business.
The least they could do was
give us some satisfaction and .
see the work being done. The
bridge over Dona Bay looks
no different now than it did
three months ago. I don't
think it's the contractor's fault.

I think it's time we get some-
body who can choose a good
contractor and a good sched-
ule. This is completely unac-
ceptable.
Ignorant. This is in re-


sponse to "Should doctors get
performance bonuses?" This
is the most ignorant article
I've ever read. What are we
talking about here, about
doctors and the price of


health care? Wake up. It's not
the doctors, it's medical mal-
practice. That is the problem.
And that is why doctors are
ordering more and more
tests. And that's why people
are complaining about health
care costs. It has nothing to
do with doctors and how
much they make.
Let's really look at what it
takes to become a doctor, and
stop pointing the finger at
doctors. It is not the doctors.


People come in with a multi-
tude of problems. Doctors
come in and there's litigation.
You cannot expect free health
care for everybody and then
expect people to deliver that
without a cost. There is a cost
involved. And it's really stu-
pid; I'm really ready to just
cancel this paper because this
paper is so ignorant.
Eew. The cross country in-
vitational that went through
Pinebrook Park- how conta-


minated was that water?
Loaded with sewage? Pos-
sibly.
Proof negative. You need a
new proofreader. Your current
proofreader can't spell, can't
even get the correct solution
to the Sudoku puzzle into the
paper on the same day as the
puzzle appears. Sept. 6-7
paper is a good example of his
or her poor workmanship.
This has happened several
times.

District seeks



exclusive



charter power

The school board petitions the state to retain
sole authority to approve charter schools
within county lines.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

The Sarasota County
School Board wants to opt out
of a new law that would allow
an entity other than itself to
authorize charter schools
within its boundaries.
The board passed a resolu-
tion Tuesday formally asking
the Florida State Board of
Education to allow it to retain
exclusive authority over char-
ter schools.
Florida Schools of Ex-
cellence Commission was
established by the Legislature
last session with the passage
of HB 135. It formalized a
"best practice" in charter
school law promoting col-
laboration with municipali-
ties, colleges, universities and
regional educational consor-
tia to cosponsor charter
schools.
Like school boards, the
commission tan authorize
charter schools.
Twenty-six states and the
District of Columbia already
have the alternative route to
sponsorship.
By establishing an alter-
nate route to sponsorship, the
law could give charter school
applicants an end-run
around school boards that'
have become gun shy from
sponsoring schools that
haven't lived up to their ex-
pectations.
Optout ... ':
A provision in the law,
however, allows school dis-
tricts to opt out of its require-
ments by petitioning the state
board.
"The primary reason (for
the resolution) is to maintain
the quality of education for
children in Sarasota County
schools," said school board
chair Carol Todd on Tuesday.
"(Exclusivity) allows us to
maintain control. As a school
district, we are held account-
able for the performance of
charter schools within our
boundaries. Every year when
the state grades charter
schools, that grade becomes a
component of the grade for
the entire district.
"If we are.going to be held
accountable, then we want
control. We want the ability
and flexibility to ensure a
quality education to all stu-
dents in all settings.
"The research is pretty
clear charter schools nation-
wide are not performing as
one would have expected.
They're performing below
expectations."
But not in Sarasota County,
according to Todd.
"We have some excellent
charter schools, but we also
have some that need im-
provement. Our staff is work-
ing very closely to provide as
much support as possible."
Asked whether the district
record of having approved
nine charter schools over the
last nine years one each
year was a sign of success
or failure of the charter school
law working in Sarasota
County, Todd said there is no
magic number to measure by.
"It depends on the number
of applicants and upon the
satisfaction of parents with
traditional public schools,"
she said. "If there's not a need,
there's not a need."
"Research says parents pri-
marily choose other than dis-
trict schools for work and day
care purposes. Nationwide,
parents are generally satisfied
with education at public
schools," Todd said.
Good choice
Vickie Marble, principal at
the Student Leadership Acad-


emy in Venice, supports the
new commission, but can
appreciate the district's posi-
tion.
Having previously served
on the state Charter School
Review Panel, Marble was
involved in the first charter
school authorizations in Flor-
ida 10 years ago. She's been
on both sides of charter
school wars.
"The commission gives
charters more choice op-
tions." Marble said. "Parents
like choice. Choice is a good
thing.
"I also respect and under-
stand the district desire to
maintain (its status) as sole
authorizer because the law is
so new and no one knows
what rest of the story is. Is this
just another educational ex-
periment or will charter
schools succeed?"
"I think in Florida charter
schools can offer high-quality
services to children in a lot of
instances. The whole charter
school movement has turned
out way better than we
thought it would 10 years
ago," she said.
Still,, she maintains Sara-
sota County School District
has been a good sponsor.
"I can't see an texistingi
charter school wanting to go
somewhere else," she said,
referring to a provision in the
new law that would allow a
charter school to switch to
commission sponsorship if a
;distriet-fails to maintain ex- -
'clusivir.
"Sharing referendum dol-
lars with charter schools and
terrific Landings staff support
contribute to the high quality
of charter schools in Sarasota
County. You can't do it on a
shoestring budget.
"I said 10 years ago, the
good charters will rise and
bad ones will go away. It holds
true today."
Petition
It's unknown just how
many school districts will
claim exclusive authority.
Districts have 60 days after
establishment of the com-
mission to seek exclusitily.
School boards can opt out
annually thereafter.
To petition, the district
must adopt a written resolu-
tion, accompanied by a writ-
ten description addressing
their charter school history.
The state board must hold a
public hearing to consider the
request.
A party may challenge the
state board's decision to grant
exclusivity to a district if a
protest is filed within 30 days
of the state board's decision.
The law lists 10 areas the
state board will consider for
school districts who seek
exclusivity, but the commis-
sion could add their own.
Among them, districts
must show they've provided
fair and equitable treatment
to their existing charters
schools, including fair distrib-
ution of capital outlay funds.
They must also show they
haven't established a morato-
rium on charter schools or
created enrollment limits.
The district must also show it
has a history that encourages
chartering.

Candidates to face teen audience


STAFF REPORT


Teens will tackle politics at
6 p.m. Thursday in a debate-
style event, asking questions
of candidates of the major
political parties. The event
will be held in the Venice
Community Center, 326 S.
Nokomis Ave.
Featured will be David
Shapiro, Democrat, and Doug
Holder, Republican, candi-
dates for Florida House
District 70.
May-Elise Martinsen, a
junior at Pine View School, is
the coordinator of the event.
She believes that teens want
to participate because they
have an interest in politics
and want to help the commu-
nity.
"The opportunity to speak
to the various candidates, to
have your voice heard by the
people who will make the
decisions, is very exciting,"
said Martinsen.
This is the fourth "Teens
Tackle Politics" event orga-
nized by Community Youth

Indian boys rout Port


BY KEN HAGGERTY
CORRESPONDENT


Time and again this sea-
son, the Venice High boys
golf team has proven its top-
flight credentials.
Monday evening proved
no different. Playing in per-
fect conditions at Jacaranda
West Country Club, from the
first tee shots it was a fore-
gone conclusion that the
Indians would demolish Port


Charlotte.
By the end of play, the
inevitable' had occurred with
Venice (18-1) routing the
Pirates, 147-191.
With this, the last week
before the district tourna-
ment, coach Marty Tarala
was quick to point out the
secret to the team's ongoing
suc-cess the boys dedica-
tion to playing tournaments
away from the high school
scene. ,


Tenn., smacked Venice in
three straight.
The losses relegated Ven-
ice to an eighth-place finish
in the 16-school field.

Gaudreau was voted to the
all-tournament team.

'Stormwater Godfather' addresses watershed issues


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

He made them a presenta-
don they couldn't refute.
Eric Livingston, the "God-
. father of Stormwater," spoke
to Sarasota County commis-
sioners recently about "The
Continuing Evolution of
Stormnwater and Watershed
Management in Florida,"
Which; addressed the devel-
5 opment of Florida's storm-
water management program
over dihe past 30 years.
.,, Livingston, the Depart-
- ment of Environmental Pro-
tection's chief of watershed
management, said that before
1980 the program focused on
; flooding. By the early 1980s, it
i'1f had evolved to stormwater
treatment. Now it has pro-
' grossed to comprehensive
watershed management.
"There has been a signifi-
cant decline in aquatic eco-
logical integrity as water-
sheds urbanize," he said.
Despite its recognition for
having one of the most highly
regarded programs in the
country, Livingston said,
many of Florida's ground-
water and surface waters are
still not healthy.
"The key is managing
water throughout the entire
water cycle and in particular,
managing the change in vol-
ume that occurs in urbaniza-
tion," he said.
What to do
How must we develop
land these days in order to
maintain endangered natural
ecosystems while preserving
optimal stormwater collec-
tion and removal?
Livingston said a recent
study around the country
examined this question.
"The most important thing
to preserving aquatic ecolog-
ical integrity is maintaining
a 100-foot buffer along our
streams, maintaining our
forests and wetlands as much
s we can within the water-
shed and using the best
management practices that
we've allbeen using," Liing-
ston said.
These include the imple-
mentation of swales, reten-
tion ponds and stormwater
treatment, as well as acquir-
ing environmentally sensitive
V land to create natural buffers
between floodplains and
urban areas.
"Stormwater management
and sustainable development
are much more than engi-
neering and biology," Living-
ston said. "We have to have
public input, we have to
know community goals and
"' we have to recognize the
inherent limitations that
some types (of stormwater
treatment practices) have if
we are truly going to have
sustainable development."
We also need to prevent
stormwater from getting pol-
luted in the first place, he
added, "by using Florida-
friendly landscaping and
proper fertilization and pes-
ticides."
, ULivingston enthusiastically
endorsed green roofs, which
help reduce stormwater vol-
ume and pollutant loading
Sby up to 80 percent a prac-
t; ice that has been used in
Germany for more than 50
years. He noted that a green
roof will be built onto the
Snew Osprey Library, to serve
as a living example of low
Impact design.
Cultural change
Livingston appealed to the
.: audience to find better ways
of dealing with stormwater
in their own homes, such as
,, redirecting rainwater to irri-
a gate the lawn or capturing it
Sin a cistern to be reused to
',. wash the car, as opposed to
letting it run down the drive-
way, into the street and over-
..burden the storm drain.
"The biggest challenge


we face is cultural change,"
Livingston concluded.
"We need to make the
commitment to just say 'no'
to water pollution, because
the bottom line is water is
our lifeblood. Clean water is
essential for our economic
vitality and the quality of life


that all of us enjoy. We can
make this happen if we're all
willing to do something each
day to assure that our chil-
dren will have clean water
tomorrow."
"It's always a gas to hear
you talk," Commissioner Jon
Thaxton said to Livingston at
the close of his presentation.


Thaxton then raised three
related topics for Livingston
to address: the efficacy of
stormwater vaults, the effects
of fill as a substitute for clear-
ed trees in a development and
how talks are going with the
water management district.
"We have no real good data
on how well (vaults) work,"


Livingston said. "The vault
holds the water, but has to go
through some kind of filter in
order to cleanse it. That may
be a solution down the road,
but I'm unaware of any data
right now on the effectiveness
of different vault systems."
As for clearing and fill,
Livingston said, "One of the


things we need to do is take
a look at some other con-
struction techniques. Maybe
instead of fill we might come
up on stem walls or pilings.
We need to work on that."
Livingston was optimistic
about the acceptance of the
water management districts
for low-impact design.,


"I think they all accept the
fact that we need to do more
and that there are limitations
on structural controls. II see
no hurdles (with them) that
we can't get over," he said.

VACC Hob Nob Mixes Business with Politics


In the midst of some pretty heated debate between the City and-County,
who better than the Venice Area Chamber of Commerce to bring busi-
ness leaders and elected politicians together? On Sept. 14th, the Cham-
ber did just that! City and County officials mixed and mingled with politi-
cal hopefuls, business owners, and government staff at the Venice Art
Center. Chamber members were welcome to express their opinions to
area politicians in an informal social setting, and candidates could state
their positions on local hot topics while rubbing elbows with Venice's
top movers and shakers. Over 150 were in attendance at this annual
event.

Help Your Employees Become Homeowners 1st Time Buyers Course


The Venice Area Chamber of Commerce in conjunction With the Com-
munity Housing Trust of Sarasota County are hosting a First Time
Homebuyer Orientation Seminar on Thursday, October 19th and No-
vember 16th, from 5 6pm at the VACC office, 597 Tamiami Trail S.,


A BETTER SOLUTION OF VENICE
The Venice area is fortunate to have many home health care agencies
providing homemakers and companions dedicated to the spirit of
sincere compassion and individual caring.

Our Business of the Month winnerA Better Solution of Venice has been serving South
Sarasota County since January 1998. Their exemplary senior home health care is
attested in the following letter:

A Better Solution of Venice provided immediate assistance the very day that we called
which was critical since my wife and I are working full-time. We can't say enough
about how wonderful they were when my Mom needed some extra help with an
assisted living facility. Initially, they assisted only a few hours as we requested.
Shortly there after we needed 24 hour coverage due to Mom's declining health. This
was a crucial element in our ability to let her remain in the assisted living facility as
she was vehement against moving to a nursing home.

The letter concluded: It has been our experience that the staff atA Better Solution of
Venice is a very caring and loving group which made Mom's last days so much better
and she really enjoyed their companionship. We don't know what we would have
done without them.

A Better Solution of Venice is located at 411 Commercial Court Suite
G in Venice.

Opening night
Newly opened at the
Venice Little Theatre is "Fools"
by Neil Simon. It will play on
the theater's main stage
through Oct. 22. Nearly any-
thing by Simon i s funny and
this is one of his funniest. It

the residents are complete
imbeciles including his'
new-found love and her par-
ents.
Next on the main stage will
be "Gypsy," which opens Nov.
7 and plays through Nov. 26.
With music by Julie Styne and
lyrics by Stephen Sondheim,
his classic Broadway hit is the
story of Gypsy Rose Lee and
starred Natalie Wood in the
film version.
Opening next in Stage II is
"Romance" by David Mamet,
playing Nov. 2-19. Enjoy a bit
more Sondheim in January
when "Into the Woods" plays
from Jan. 18-Feb. 11. Music
and lyrics are by Sondheim.
These offerings are just the'
tip of the iceberg for that won-
derful theater also has its
Yvonne T. Pinkerton Theatre,
the home of Stage II produc-
tions and its Theatre forYoung
People and its classes and its
theater tech training program
and more than ever would fit
in this column. If you have not
been to the VLT lately, you
have not been to the VLT.
Tickets for main stage pro-
ductions are $22 per person
with season ticket deals rang-
ing from $61-$92 for main
stage and State II produc-
tions. For more information

She searches for seashells



by the seashore


BY COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER
A hobby can often be a
person's passion.
This is true of 77-
year-old Helen Gardner of
Venice.
Gardner likes to collect
seashells and fossils that have
been brought up on the
shore. She has engaged in this
practice since she moved to
Venice from New Jersey 12
years ago.
What started out as a way
to pass the time while waiting
for her husband to wake up in
the morning, became a intri-
cate collection of some of
Florida's most interesting
gifts.
Gardner would simply
walk the beach in the early
morning, looking for any
interesting items she might
come across. Sometimes,
Gardner didn't even know she
had found anything signifi-
cant, especially when she
found fossils.
As her collection began to
grow rapidly, she found her-
self wanting to identify what
she had found.
Gardner, being resource-
ful, went to theVenice Library.
Once there, she used the mas-
sive display case of shells to
help her identify what kinds
of items she was finding on
the beach.
Even more helpful were
the many field guides written
about shells.
But what Gardner was
about realize was that she had
found something more than
just seashells on the beach.
Copnmon, everyday shells
that one can often take for
granted on the beach turned
out to be fossils, Gardner said
as she pointed out her collec-
tion of fossilized shells.
Gardner doesn't only find
seashells when she takes her
walks on the beach. She has
in her active collection other
types of marine life, such as
an array of crabs and coral,
and she also has fossilized
horse teeth and a deer jaw. All
of these items were found on
area beaches.
The crabs are her favorite,
for a reason she cannot say.
The collection
In organized areas in her
home, Gardner keeps her cat-
egorized collection. She
keeps her bivalves and gas-
tropdeds, types of shells, that
she found on area beaches,
separated in her kitchen. All
are labeled accordingly.
Also in her kitchen area are
her shells from all over the
globe, highlights being coral
.from Tahiti and Australia and
a salt and pepper shaker set
from India.


Horseshoe crab.
"People often give me a lot
of shells as gifts," Gardner
said, pointing to this part of
her collection.
In her garage is where she
keeps her fossil collection.
While these pieces are not as
colorful or pretty as the the

shells inside, they are fasci-
nating to look at. For exam-
ple, on the deer jaw, teeth can
still be seen. And, like the deer
jaw, it is hard to look away
from the fossilized horse
teeth, knowing that they were
found on the shoreline.
Another section of her col-
lection Gardner refers to as
rocks. These rocks are in the
shape of shells, but their his-
tory is much more interest-
ing. These shells eventually
became fossils that were filled
with mud. Over time, the
mud and the shell eroded
away, leaving behind a stone
imprint of the former shell.

Shelling
Gardner recommends
shelling early in the morning,
when the tide is low. She also
said that after there is a high
tide, due to a storm, the sea
will often unearth its secrets.
Once the tide goes back
down, she said people can
find all sorts of interesting


specimens.
"Shelling isn't for every-
one," Gardner said. "I often
have people tell me they want
to go shelling, but once they
find out how early they have
to go, they don't want want to."
Gardner said that since the

Gardner has other interests.
She enjoys duplicate bridge
and puzzles. She is also trying
to locate her classmates for a
60th high school reunion.
Also, located around her
house is her gourd collection.
These gourds were made by
her in the semblance of birds,
mostly turkeys. However, her
gourds are just another one of
her hobbies.
She hasn't written any
books on shelling, but she has
written a couple of books of
her family's history.
"I've never had the oppor-
tunity to teach (about
shells)," Gardner said. Nor
has the opportunity present-
ed itself for her to write a book
on the subject. She defers to
her peers.
Gardner invites anyone
who wants to to view her col-
lection.
Recently, Gardner has had
hip surgery, making it difficult
for her to continue shelling.

When the handwriting is not on the page


Shell sculpture installed on Key roundabout


LYNN REIFERT


Imagine for a moment that
you are in the second grade.
You are full of excitement
and anticipation at the begin-
ning of the new school year.
You are eager to learn to read
and write along with your
classmates, even though
you've noticed that school is
not as easy as you had hoped.
In fact, it just keeps getting
harder.
At 6 or 7, you are old
enough to realize that most of
the other children complete
their work long before you do.
They have finished writing a
whole line of words, while you
are still searching for where to
begin each letter and which
way to make your pencil go.
You feel stupid.
When you actually put
pencil to paper, it seems as if
someone has taped your fin-
gers together. You grasp the
pencil so tightly that your
hand gets sweaty and begins
to hurt. Writing is a painfully
slow task.
At some point, you just
can't keep going. There must
be some relief from this.
So, you start to look around
the room, fidget with some-
thing, or do something funny
to get someone else's atten-
-tion. If the teacher sees you,
she may tell you to "focus" on
what you are supposed to be
doing. She tells you that if you
would just "focus," you would
get your work done and not
have to stay in for recess.
If you could read your
teacher's mind, she would
likely be thinking, "I must
keep an eye on this one. He
may need medication. I will
start writing notes to his par-
ents about his inability to


7LASSIFIEE


.-:- enice Gondoli"r Sun .
To Advertise call 207-1200


attend to his work, to prepare
them for accepting the idea
that he may have attention
deficit disorder."
When the school day is
finally over, the teacher hands
you a packet full of home-
work. You dutifully put the
green folder in your back-
pack. It is filled with papers
with blank lines for writing
answers. After dinner, there
will be no playtime for you.
You've been sitting at a
desk all day. Now you are sit-
ting at the kitchen table with a
lot of pent-up energy. You
need to get outside and play,
but first you will have to
struggle through reading a
page-long story about a girl
who had a birthday party at
the park.
Then, you will need to
answer seven comprehen-
sion questions, one of which
requires that you list every-
thing the children ate at the
party. This assignment, be-
cause of all the writing re-
quired, will take you at least
an hour, with someone coax-
ing and helping you the
whole time.
They keep telling you to
stop wiggling around, and
"focus" on your homework. It
seems that every adult you
know thinks there is some-
thing wrong with you.
There is never any time left
to do what you really want
and need to do to develop,
both physically and mentally
play.
This imagined scenario is
really quite common. Chil-
dren who have problems with
handwriting suffer more than
we know.
At a young age most still
want to please their teacher
and parents. Not all react the
,same way to not being able to
do so. Some act out in their
frustration and pretend they
don't care. Some get anxious
and upset. Others avoid do-
ing work that is too over-
whelming for them. All must
feel inadequate.
What could teachers and
parents do to help these chil-
dren?
Recognize there is a prob-
lem. It is natural to notice the
symptom (the child not fo-
cusing), rather than the cause
of his not focusing.
The adult can be distracted
by the child's behavior to the
extent that they overlook
what led to the behavior..


Notice the amount of effort
used for writing and the way
the child grips his pencil in
comparison to others his age.
Be sensitive to the prob-
lem, and adjust the assign-
ments. Realize the problem
may be caused by muscle
weakness or a developmental
or neurological lack of dexter-
ity. We are not all ready to
write when we are expected
to do so.
Require less writing from
the child until he is more
capable. For example, ask the
child to write answers to two
or three of the comprehen-
sion questions. Then allow
the parents to write the
answers to the rest of the
questions, as dictated by the
child. Instead of requiring the
child to write all spelling
words three times each, only
have him write each one time,
and practice spelling orally
with a parent or sibling.
Remediate the problem.
Seek advice from an occupa-
tional therapist, a special
education teacher or a child
development expert. These
professionals can give you
ideas for developing skills for
handwriting. They may sug-
gest that you encourage up-
per body strengthening activ-
ities.
Also, provide experiences
with fine-motor tasks, such as
tracing, cutting, gluing, fold-
ing, doing mazes, coloring,
peg games, using tools, clay,
putting models together, etc.
Help by consistently remind-
ing the child to hold his pencil
properly and form letters cor-
rectly, i.e. top to bottom.
Looking more closely at
what may be causing a child
to lack the ability to "focus"
on schoolwork can provide
information that leads to a
solution. The results will in-
clude improved attitude, mo-
tivation and self-esteem in
the child, and lower stress lev-
els for everyone involved.

BY RITAJUHASZ
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Four years of organizing,
planning and fundraising
came to fruition on Monday
morning when a glistening
stainless steel tulip shell
sculpture was put in place on
Manasota Key's roundabout.
The shell, crafted by part-
time Manasota Key artist
Malcolm Robertson, sits on
the roundabout at the inter-
section of Gulf Boulevard and
Beach and North Beach
roads.
The engineer for the pro-
ject, Ryan Forrestel of
American Consulting En-
gineers, arrived after most of
the crew from General Con-
tracting Services were at the
site awaiting the completion
of lids for the four stanchions
upon which the 10-foot steel
shell would rest.
Forrestel had forgotten
about the closing of the near-
by Tom Adams Bridge con-
necting Englewood with
Manasota Key, so he had to
take a long detour to the
bridge at the northern end of
the island.
That detour didn't lessen
his excitement, as well as the
overall joviality of those gath-
ered for the occasion. Good-
natured teasing was given to
engineer Susan Lomas, who
had left some important bolts
behind. No worries, though.
The missing bolts were being
jet-skied over from the main-
land.
"I'll never hear the end of
this," Lomas bemoaned. "And
on top of that, Circle K is
closed and we can't get cof-
fee."
Ian Dack, project engineer
for Charlotte *County, said
everything was working out
as planned, despite some site
modifications.
"It will look great when it is
completed, with about six
tons of landscape boulders
and wave lights," Dack said.
Lomas pulled out the plans
for the site and pointed out
how the light pole would arc
over, shedding light on the
shell.
Finishing touches were
being placed on the four sup-
port blocks, which were
topped off with "breakaway"
barriers to protect the shell in
the possibility of a car careen-
ing into it. The barriers are


made of hollowed-out galva-
nized aluminum that also
house the wiring for the
lights.
Finally, engineer Steve
Moody climbed on the back-
hoe and Bill Hughes strapped
and secured the tulip shell
sculpture on to the hoe.
Slowly, the giant shell was lift-
ed off, the truck bed and gen-
tly rotated to its final resting
place.
"I love it! This is the day we
dreamed of," exulted Wayne
Largent, vice chairman of the
Municipal Services Taxing
Unit that funded the project,
as Steve Stump, also a mem-
ber of MSTU nodded in
agreement.
B.J. Galberaith, chair of the
Manasota and Sandpiper Key.
Advisory Committee, esti-
,'mated- the project -cost
around $150,000. She also
noted that this was Charlotte


* 0


County's first public art.
The sculpture has been
referred to commonly as the
conch shell, and likely will
continue to be known as a
conch. However, the giant
stainless steel gastropod de-
picts the true tulip or fascio-
laria tulipa shell. It can with-
stand 140 mph winds, ac-
cording to the engineers, and
so is ideal for the ever-chang-
ing weather off the Gulf.
Galberaith said the Herm-
itage Artist Retreat sponsored
the undertaking. Other than
the Manasota MSTU, donors
were the Gulf Coast Com-
munity Foundation of Venice,
the Thomas and Annette Dig-
nam Family Foundation, the
Manasota Key Association,
Englewood Bank, Richard
and B.J. Galberaith, The Key
Agency. David:, and Rita
Murray, DMK Group Inc. and
Friends of Manasota Key.

DAVE BARRY
i ; '^ , .N-' r


This classic Davy Barry
column was originally pub-
lished Sept. 20, 1998.

One evening, my wife
mentioned, casually, that she
had been talking to the son of
one of her friends, a little boy
named Alexander, about his
upcoming fourth birthday.
"Alexander says he's having
a Batman party," my wife said.
"Hm," I said.
"So I told him that maybe
Batman would come to the
party," my wife said.
"Hm," I said.
My wife said nothing then.
She just looked at me. Sud-
denly, I knew who was going
to be Batman.
I was not totally opposed.
In my youth, I read many
Batman comics, and it
seemed to me that he had a
pretty neat life, disguised as
wealthy playboy Bruce
Wayne, waiting for the police
commissioner of Gotham
City to shine the Bat Signal
onto the clouds (it was always
a cloudy night when the com-
missioner needed Batman).
Then Bruce would change
instantly it took him only
one comic-book panel into
his Batman costume and roar
off in the Batmobile to do bat-
tle with the Forces of Evil or
attend a birthday party.
Of course, Bruce owned his
own Batman costume. I had
to rent mine. It consisted of
numerous black rubber

pieces, similar to automobile
floor mats, with strings so you
could tie them to your body.
One piece was shaped like
rippling chest muscles, so you
could transform yourself, like
magic, from a flabby weakling
into a flabby weakling wear-
ing an automobile floor mat.
It took me a lot longer than
one comic panel to get into
this costume, but finally I was
ready to speak the words that,
strike fear into the hearts of
criminals everywhere: "Dear,
could you tie my G-string?" It
turns out that a key part of the
Batman costume is this trian-
gular floor mat piece that pro-
tects the Bat Region. It's very
difficult to attach this piece to
yourself without help, which
could explain why Batman
hooked up with Robin.
At last I was ready. In full
Bat regalia, I stepped out of
the house, and as crazy as
this may sound-for the first
time I truly understood, as
only a crusader for justice can
understand, why people do
not wear heavy black rubber
outfits in South Florida.
Staggering through the
armor-piercing sunshine and
384 percent humidity, I made
it to the Batmobile, which was
disguised as a wealthy play-
boy's Toyota Celica.
When we got to
Alexander's house, in accor-
dance with our Bat Plan, I
remained outside in the
Batmobile while my wife
went to the back yard, where
the party was going on. We
had bought Alexander a
Batman walkie-talkie set;
Michelle gaveAlexander one
unit and told him to use it to
call Batman.
These Batman walkie-
talkies contain actual transis-
tors, so when Alexander
called me, I was able to hear,
on the other unit, clear as a
bell, a random bunch of stat-
ic. Interpreting this as the Bat
Signal, I pulled the rubber Bat


Cowl over my head, thus ren-
dering myself legally blind,
and drove the Toyota
Batmobile into the back yard.
The effect on the party
guests, as you would expect,
was electrifying. The adults
were so electrified that some
of them almost wet them-
selves. The younger guests
were stunned into silence,
except for Matthew, age 1,
who ran, crying, to his mom,
and probably did wet himself.
With all eyes on me, I
stopped the Batmobile, flung
the door open, and, in one
fluid, manly motion, sprang
out of the seat, then got
retracted violently back into
the seat, because I had forgot-
ten to unfasten my seat belt.
Eventually I was able to dis-
entangle my cape and stride
in a manly, rubberized way
over to the birthday boy.
"Happy birthday, Alexan-
der!" I said, using a deep Bat
Voice. After that, the conver-
sation lagged, because, let's
be honest, what are you going
to talk to Batman about? The
pennant races? So we just
stood there for a while, with
Alexander staring at me, and
me trying to look manly and
calm despite the fact that
after 30 seconds in the sun I
could have fried an egg on top
of my cowl. '
Finally the cake arrived,
and everybody sang "Happy
Birthday," and I announced
that I had to go fight crime.
Striding back to the Bat-
mobile, I opened the car door,
turned dramatically toward
the youngsters and said,
quote, "BWEEPBWEEPB-
WEEPBWEEE" Actually, it was
the Batmobile that said this,
because I had forgotten to
deactivate the Bat Alarm. I
climbed into the front, seat,
slammed the door with sever-
al inches of cape sticking out
the bottom and backed man-
fully and blindly into the
street. Fortunately there was

nothing in my way, because I
would definitely have hit it,
and the law would not have
been on my side. ("Mr. Barry,
please tell the jury exactly
what you were wearing as you
backed your car over the
plaintiff.")
The next day, Alexander's
mom reported that the first
thing he did when he woke up
was turn on his walkie-talkie
and call Batman. He said he
could hear Batman, but
Batman couldn't hear him
because he was busy fighting
evil supercriminals named
Poison Ivy and Mr. Freeze.
This was almost true: Batman
was actually battling Heat
Rash. So he will be out of
action for a while.
The next superhero from
this household to visit Alex-
ander- and I have made this
very clear to my wife will
definitely be Cat Woman.

S When
viewed from "-
S the side, the spine displays
three natural curves (cervical,
) thoracic, and lumbar) that
ensure flexibility and proper
weight distribution. When viewed
from the rear, the spine is virtually
Straight. However, three out of five
people have a condition called
* "scoliosis" that causes lateral curvature
(to the right and/or left). Scoliosis can
i develop very gradually and usually is not
diagnosed until, a child reaches 10-14
years of age. While mild cases only
warrant monitoring, severe cases can lead
to considerable discomfort and other
potential health problems. Parents should
be aware of any abnormal curvature in
their children's spines. Instead of relying
on school screenings, schedule an
appointment with a chiropractor to
evaluate the health of your child's
spine.

SP.S. While scoliosis can sometimes be
obvious, as one shoulder blade is
noticeably higher than the other, it
sometimes requires careful measurement to
make a proper diagnosis.

Local BOO!
If you are in the mood for
some haunting tales of the
Ringlings and others who
have spooked a few folks in
Sarasota, join me on a tour of


the Ringling mansion, Ca
d'Zan and several other
haunted places in Sarasota,
Saturday, Oct. 28. Sponsored
by St. Petersburg College, we
will go haunting in Sarasota
all day beginning at 9:30 a.m.
when we meet in the Uni-
versity Parkway parking lot in
front of the museum and the
Florida State University Park-
ing Lot.
Look for the great big bus
that says St. Petersburg Col-
lege on the side. You will be
returned to the parking lot
and your car after the day-
long tour, which includes


lunch in the new dining room
in the new Visitor Center of
the museum. The $59 price
includes admissions, lunch,
bus ride, copy of "Ghost
Stories of Sarasota," after-
noon snacks and a few sur-
prises. To make reservations,
call Jackie Addis at (727) 341-
3184.
Strawberries move over
Bikers and motorcycle fans
will transform Plant City from
the Strawberry capital into a
two-wheeler's meccas as tens
of thousands of bikers and
motorcycle fans gather for the


Fourth Anniversary Plant City
Bike Fest Oct. 7, from 5-11
p.m. near the historic Plant
City Train Depot. Admission
is free and more than 20,000
people are expected to gather
for the food, live entertain-
ment and the 50/50 drawing
during the event. There will
be biker games in the south
parking lot throughout the
night and the opportunity to
win a 2006 Harley Davidson
Wide Glide motorcycle.
For more information, call
the Greater Plant City
Chamber of Commerce at
(813) 754-3707 or visit plantc-


ity.org.
Pack right
Sean Davoren, head butler
of the Lanesborough Hotel in
London and billed as the
"world's favorite butler" offers
tips for packing to avoid
unneccessary delays with air-
port security personnel.
The author of "Manners
From Heaven" said to always
use a hard suitcase, place all
liquid items in zip-close
freezer bags, wrap electronic
items in clothing to prevent
breakage and to make a list of
what you will wear each day


and then stick to it. Never roll
clothing. Fold it to maximize
room and avoid destruction
of clothing. Pack duplicates of
your favorite tweezers and
razors in case of confiscation,
avoid overpacking to avoid
added security fees, pack in
one bag as opposed to several
to save time at baggage claim
and, to condense luggage,
place dry cleaning bags in
between layers of various
items.
Davoren is considered an
expert on business travel,
leisure travel and all the has-
sles that can come with it.
