County, cities



begin talks


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


After weeks of public dis-
cussion and preparation, offi-
cials from Sarasota County
and the cities of North Port
and Venice sat down Wed-
nesday to begin forming an
agreement on how they could
grow and prosper in a peace-
ful, cooperative manner.
The goal of those assem-
bled in Room A of the
Colonial Oaks Park meeting
facility was to craft joint plan-
ning agreements that would
coordinate growth manage-
ment.
Facilitator Linda Shelley, a
Tallahassee attorney with ex-
tensive experience working
with local governments on
difficult intergovernmental
issues, wasted no time in get-
ting down to business.
"We have a complex, chal-
lenging, interesting situation
before us," she said, "and I'm
optimistic for a positive
result. We need to understand
everyone's dreams, goals and
aspirations in order to make
this work. There's 50 ways to
leave your lover and 50
ways to write a JPA."
Shelley then invited the
group to weigh in on what it
expected of the process.
SVenice CityManager Marty
Black said his city had already
"pulled a lot of deals off the
table" to focus on the JPA.
Steve Crowell, North Port's
city manager, said a common
understanding was essential
in order to focus on which
land in the county could and
could not be annexed by the
cities.
North Port City Attorney
Rob Robinson brought a "his-
torical perspective" to the
proceedings, remembering a
previous JPA that failed,
"because of the politics sur-
rounding the situation."
Rob Lewis, executive direc-
tor of Planning & Develop-
ment Services for the county,
said, "I'm a 38-year Sarasota
County resident. My goal is to
work for the benefit of the
community."


At stake
Once they got down to
business, Black fired the first
shot.
"The county hasn't articu-
lated clearly to us what their
specific stand is," he said.
Shelley turned to Lewis.
"There is a need to have a
coordination of growth and
development," Lewis said,
adding that roads, water, in-
frastructure, boundaries and
fiscal elements all come into
play when land is annexed
and developed.
Public Works Manager
Larry Arnold chipped in that
it was imperative for the
cities' planning efforts to be
coordinated with the county.
He listed county roads and a
beefed-up police force as just
two examples everyone must
consider when adding more
growth.
"How can we address these
when an annexation hap-
pens, consisting of thousands
of homes springing up?"
Arnold asked.
Robinson wanted clarifica-
tion, too.
"Are we focusing on annex-
ations that haven't happened
yet, or those currently going
on?" he asked.
"Both," replied County
Attorney Gary Oldehoff, add-
ing that annexations over the
last 10 years have reached
extraordinary proportions.
Show the numbers
Deputy County Admin-
istrator Susan Scott said the
county's concerns were on
issues of un-annexed land
outside the urban service
area.
"If those properties get
annexed, the county wants a
seat at the table (in determin-
ing how they're developed),"
she said. "There are also
annexed lands outside of the
urban service area. The coun-
ty is concerned about the
coordination of services
there."
"Well, that's 80 percent of
North Port, including all

Road


The fledgling'
Substation Road
Maintenance
Association has enough
money to redo the road
instead of just putting
on more patches.
BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


In terms of wonders, the
rebuilding of Substation Road
ranks right up there with the
Great Pyramid of Giza, and
the Colossus of Rhodes.
"No one is more excited
than I," said Substation Road
Maintenance Association
President Marleie Merkle.
"We sent letters to all the 19
businesses (on Substation),
and several contributed big
bucks to help us fix the road
right for once and for all."
The problem is potholes.
Patching is not an answer. It
has failed miserably. So, the
road will be torn up and a new
roadway built.
Merkle said about $41,000
has been collected, which is
about enough to cover the
cost of the new road.
She said more money has
been pledged from some
individuals who live in con-
dominiums off Substation.
She said any money left over
would be put into a mainte-
nance fund.
Ken White Paving is doing
the construction.
Builder gets credit
While Merkle has worked
diligently for years trying to
get the road fixed, she gave
credit to a builder for helping
move things off dead center.
Dave Peterson, of Petersdn
Homes and SRMA vice-presi-
dent, is trying to rezone a par-
cel of property on Substation
on which he wants to build
condominiums.


Substation




being fixed


,.



Work has begun to grade and pave Substation Road in Venice.


He joined the SRMA when
it was formed about six weeks
ago.
With Peterson on board,
things started to happen.
That means money started
coming in.
The 3/10ths-mile-long,
dead-end road is located
immediately south of Burger
King and west of U.S. 41
Bypass.
The abyss
The problem is when the
old dirt road was paved more
than 20 years ago, a proper


base was not put down. The
result over the years pot-
holes of biblical proportions,
some large enough to swal-
low aVW Bug and send other
cars to the alignment shop.
When it rains, the potholes
become especially dangerous
because they fill with water
and you can't see them until
your front end drops into the
abyss.
"I think we are going to put
a lot of tire stores out of busi-
ness when the road is fixed,"
Peterson said.


Rags to riches
Over the years, Merkle,
Venice Area Board of Realtors
executive vice president
(VABR is located on
Substation Road), had to
almost literally beg for pen-
nies from the businesses to
patch the potholes. Some
contributed, many would
not.
"We tried to get the city to
take it over," Merkle said, "but
that would entail driveways,
sidewalks, utilities and would

Offshore oil drilling likely in near future


From the Oct. 10, 1981, Gondolier Sun


BY DAVID MARTIN
STAFF WRITER


So far nothing but "Okla-
homa dust" has turned up in
Sun Coast waters during ex-
ploratory oil drilling, a petro-
leum industry spokesman
said Thursday, although this
doesn't mean major oil com-
panies are about to give up
trying.
Banking on odds that only
one well in 60 pays off, oil
companies are bound to in-


crease offshore drilling pres-
sure in waters west of Venice,
said Tom Bamawell, associate
director of the Florida Petro-
leum Council.
During his second annual
luncheon engagement with
the Venice-Nokomis Rotary
Club, Bamawell predicted the
nation's mounting need for
energy independence may
manifest itself in the enor-
mous floating oil derricks
beyond the horizon as early
as next year.


He also emphasized the
need for environmental safe-
guards during exploratory
drilling and discounted pop-
ular notions that oil spills
result in residual damage
along coastal areas.
"The'Good Lord was capri-
cious when it came to oil
deposits," he said. "We have
found oil directly inland from
Venice, but there is really
no way of telling where a
deposit will be."
Instead, he rolled out a map
of Sun Coast waters showing
a dozen or s6olittle green


squares representing active
oil leases roughly 65 miles
offshore. Although immediate
plans for the leases are un-
certain, Barnawell expects
drilling to resume next year
on.sites lying 115 to 130 miles
west of Sarasota County.
He also said it is "possible"
exploratory drilling could
take place at a lease site 10.3
miles offshore, slightly north
ofVenice.
"No one can stand up and
tell you oil spills won't hap-
pen," he said in response to
questions from the audience.


Shine on, shine on


Harvest Moon


Shortly after sunset today,
you'll see a full moon arising.
Now, every full moon of
the year has a fanciful name.
This one is called the Harvest
Moon.
The Harvest Moon got its
name for the light it provides
farmers working long hours
to harvest their crops. It
seems that most of the year,
the moon rises, on average,
about 50 minutes later each
day. But the full moon closest
to the start of autumn cuts
that to about 30 minutes.
So during tonight's Harvest
Moon and for the next few
days, farmers will have light
right after sunset to continue
chores in their fields.

Door shuts on superintendent supporters


With four school board members wishing him
well, there's little chance now to persuade
Superintendent Gary Norris to stay.


.. .. .

BY fGREiGILES
.TAFF WRITER

Still hopeful School Super-
intendent Gary Norris might
change his mind and stay?
Get over it. He's not.
Tuesday's
discussion by
Sarasota
County
School Board
members
pretty much
assured that.
If there was
any hope that
school staff,
administra-
tors and the school board
could overcome the "unimag-
inable roadblocks" referred to
by Norris in his resignation
letter, it was dashed that
evening.
Norris announced his res-
ignation on Sept. 21, but will
finish out the school year.
What instigated the board
discussion was a request by


member Frank Kovach for
staff to begin pulling together
a list of potential head hunter
organizations to get started
on the next superintendent
search.
Member Laura Benson
objected to
the request,
calling it pre-
mature.
She wanted
to know more
about Norris'
reasons for
leavingbefore
embarking on
the search.
It was a
rhetorical question, she said,
letting Norris off the hook
from answering on the spot.
Culprits
But Benson went on to
review a list of the roadblocks
she suspects played a part in
Norris' decision to leave.
She recognized difficulties
with principal buy-in over


reforms, but heard they
recently came on board with
a jointly signed proclamation.
She pointed to less than
stellar conmmunication with
the public, but was reassured
by anew district communica-,
tions plan designed by
administrators and consul-
tants to better inform parents
and staff.
She brought up the issue of
internal resistance to reforms
by educators, and said she
was encouraged by SC/TA
officials who are now saying
there is more awareness of
the need for reforms among
its members.
Finally, she pointed to
Citizens. for Better Schools
entering the picture. At a
press conference on Monday,
CBS announced its intent to
exert community pressure on
the school district to support
reforms and NeXt Generation
Learning, something that was
missing before, she said.
"I cannot find the insur-
mountable roadblocks sug-
gested in his letter of resigna-
tion," Benson said. "What is
left that makes it so impossi-
ble to stay?"
"Maybe it's the board," she


answered. "We need to have
mature conversations about
this. Do you want him to stay
or to go? We have to have that
conversation first.
"I am of the opinion that
it s not a doneqdeal."
Done deal
Within minutes, however,
it became apparent it was a
done deal for the other four
members.
One by one, the remaining
board members said they
respected
Norris' deci-
sion to leave
at the end of
the school
year, and felt
it was best to
move on.
"That's up
to Dr. Norris,"
said board Norris
member
Kathy Kleinlein, who also was
hopeful early on Norris might
reconsider. "He's tried to do
what is right for us. We should
respect what he feels is right
for his family."
"I'm not going to talk him
out of it," Kovach said. "As
elected and appointed school


leaders we throw ourselves
out there and take a lot of
shots. If it's his decision to
leave, I'll support him."
Board member John
Lewis, attending his last
meeting before going off the
school board, issued this
warning for fellow school
board members.
"The worst thing for any
board is indecision .... I think
it's clear that we need to move
forward," he said.
There's no doubt "we need
to continue
N e X t
Generation
Learning,"
added chair
Carol Todd.
"We'll forge
ahead. We will
continue to
embrace it."
Todd The brief
discussion
punctuated the end of
Tuesday's regular school
board meeting.
The awkward silence that
followed might have been
what led to Kovach's closing
remark: "We don't want any-
one to think we're pushing
him out of here."


In denial?
"I think the school board
said pretty loud and clear
they want him to go," Benson
said later.
Benson and other school

County funds Planned


Parenthood, other grants


Merchants gear up for block party


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFFWRITER


Sarasota County commis-
sioners unanimously ap-
proved funding Thursday for
grant awards based on rec-
ommendations they received
from the Human Services
Advisory Council.
The approval did not come
without a few disparaging
remarks, however.
Several audience members
objected to the proposed
funding of $30,000 for Plan-
ned Parenthood of Southwest
and Central Florida. One
man expressed his dissatis-
faction with the organiza-
tion's safe-sex policy of giving
condoms to teenagers.
"This is like saying, 'Don't
play with live electrical
wires, but we know you will,
so we'll give you rubber
gloves,' "he said.
Commissioner Paul Merc-
ier had some grievances of


his own, about the number of
grant requests that came
before the board, the amounts
the groups were asking and
the fact that many of them
seemed very similar to each
other.
"We're becoming a United
Way," Mercier said. "People
make large requests that
don't deserve them. We're
funding organizations that
don't need the money."
Commissioner Shannon
Staub asked for one small
adjustment, addressing a re-
quest that came from the
Alzheimer's Association, Flor-
ida Gulf Coast Chapter. The
group asked for $45,258, but
was granted only $16,000.
"I recommend that we
provide an additional $15,000
for the Alzheimer's Foun-
dation, contingent on those
funds going toward (the hiring
of) a South County represen-
tative,"Staub said.
Commissioner Jon Thax-


ton seconded. The recom-
mendation passed, 4-1, with
Mercier dissenting.
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson recommended no ad-
ditional changes to the grant
numbers, noting that Senior
Friendship Centers had a
worthy request for dollars to
hire a person to produce
mentors for various mentor-
ing programs.
"I think when you go after
money, though, you ought to
do it as a partnership," she
said. "Make another request
next year with other mentors
in tow and you'll have more
success."
Commissioner David Mills
complained his colleagues
weren't doing enough for
youth groups and pledged he
would do more for Easter
Seals next year.

State requires elevator generators on condominium and rental apartment buildings


BY RICK BARRY
PELICAN PRESS


All of the state's condomin-"
ium and rental apartment
buildings seven stories and
taller must have plans ap-
proved by Dec. 31 for in-
stalling emergency generat-
ors and fuel supplies to power
at least one elevator following
hurricanes.
Under the terms of the
new state law, the generators
must be installed and in-
spected within the following
12 months, no later than Dec.
31, 2007.
The city of Sarasota has


notified the owners, operators
or managers of 18 buildings
believed to fall under the
law's requirements. New
buildings, built since 2000,
already have backup power
for one elevator and emer-
gency lighting, said Tim
Litchet, the city's director of
building, zoning and code
compliance.
The county'sdeputy build-
ing official, Greg Yantorno,.
said a letter would be going
out soon to the principals of
the approximately 30 affect-
ed buildings in the unincor-
porated area.
Instead of making perma-


nent installations, the law
allows for signed contracts
with companies that will
guarantee delivery of a gen-
erator and fuel supply within
24 hours of a major power
outage. But there are no
companies, at least locally,
that provide that service.
Thousands
The installation is an ex-
pensive one, especially if the
management of an older
building has to start from
scratch, but many building
owners are realizing that the
emergency service enhance-
ments will greatly increase


residents' safety, said city
Building Official Glenn Bliss,
and hence increase the value
of their buildings.
The law requires that the
generators be sufficient to
operate at least one elevator
with fuel for a minimum of
five days following a disaster
such as a hurricane if the
building is 75 feet or taller.
The generator must also
be capable of powering
emergency lighting for com-
mon areas, stairwells, and fire
alarms. The legislature pro-
vided no funding source.
Assistant Sarasota City At-
torney Mike Connolly advis-


ed Litchet that the cities and
counties were given no en-
forcement power, beyond
accepting engineering plans
and verifying the generators
were operational before issu-
ing certificates of occupancy,
and reporting noncompli-
ance to the county Emergen-
cy Management Agency by
Dec. 31, 2007.
Inspection of the elevators
and enforcement of the new
law falls to the state Division
of Hotels and Restaurants,
which oversees annual eleva-
tor inspections, he said.
The cost to individual
buildings varies substantially,


depending on whether al-
ready installed generators are
sufficient to operate an ele-
vator, or if there is even a
generator in place in older
buildings, Bliss said, but the
bill could be somewhere in
the tens of thousands of dol-
lars.

New 'match list' adds another voter registration hoop


BY RICK BARRY
PELICAN PRESS

Florida residents trying to
register to vote Nov. 7 must
not only prove their identity
and satisfy the local elections
office they're eligible, but their
personal data and identifica-
tion numbers must now also
match a database of people
the state says are the only
ones eligible to register.
The practice is reminiscent
of the 2000 election, for which
a private contractor produced
an error-filled database of
felons whose civil rights sup-
posedly had not been restored
L- denying eligible voters the
right to vote because their
names were erroneously on
the list or were similar or iden-
tical to names on the list.
The current database is
compiled from motor vehicle
registrations, Social Security
numbers and state ID cards,
a requirement of the federal
Help AmericaVote Act.
But a large coalition of na-
tional groups concerned with


voters' rights is challenging
Florida's imposition of the
matching requirement, which
is not mandated in the fed-
eral act, the group contends.
Denied
The new list is fraught with
problems, labeling as ineligi-
ble people whose ID was
issued in a nickname Bill
instead of William, say and
those whose names have
changed since their ID was
issued, such as women who
married or divorced or added
hyphenated names, according
to spokeswoman Jennifer
Maranzano, a staff attorney
with the Advancement Proj-
ect, a Washington, D.C., civil
rights group.
Then there are the in-
evitable data-entry errors in
which numbers and names,
especially unusual names, are
mistyped by data-entry clerks
and therefore return "no
match" indications, denying
voter registration or forcing
voters who believed they
were registered to cast provi-


sional ballots, which are
counted only if the problem is
straightened out within three
days after the election.
In a sample of 606 voter
registration applications sub-
mitted to the Miami Dade
Supervisor of Elections Office,
the Advancement Project
found that 135 applicants had
been refused registration. Of
those, 63 percent were denied
because the state was unable
to match their data and iden-
tification numbers, under
Florida's new, and unique,
matching requirement, Ma-
ranzano said.
Among first-time regis-
trants those now subject to
the matching requirement
mandated by the new law
effective Jan. 1 27 percent
were denied registration for
lack of a match.
Sarasota County Elections
Supervisor Kathy Dent said
thus far the local office has
been able to resolve most of
its problems with the matching
requirement, and in the prima-
ry election was able to let a no-


SCHOOL BOARD NOTES


The Sarasota County Sc-
hool Board took the following
actions at its Oct. 3 meeting:
Charter schools: Passed a
resolution notifying the Flor-
ida Department of Education
of its desire to remain the sole
charter school authorizer for
the school district.
Coke contract: Approved
an addendum with Coca-Cola
Bottling Company of Sarasota
renewing a five-year contract.
The amended contract reflects
guidelines by the Alliance for
a Healthier Generation Initi-
ative. Under the new agree-
ment, middle and high school
cafeteria sales will include


reduced-sugar sports drinks,
as well as juice and water.
Noncafeteria vending ma-
chines will carry low-calorie
drinks, including diet carbon-
ated drinks. In addition, Coca-
Cola will pay $8,000 annually
for repairs and replacement of
school scoreboards, up to
$55,000.
Construction: Approved
the annual certification of
professionals for construction
related services. Certification
is required in order to bid on
school district construction
projects.
Health insurance: Ap-
proved the 2007 renewal of the


school district's health insur-
ance contract with Blue
Cross/Blue Shield of Florida.
The plan's cost will increase
9.8 percent over last year. AON
Consulting and the district's
Supervisor of Risk Manage-
ment estimate the increase
will cost the district an addi-
tional $2,728,743.
North Port redistricting:
Approved the initiation of the
redistricting process for a new
middle school "EE" in North
Port. An advisory committee
will review new and revised
attendance boundary lines for
the new middle school, which
opens August 2008.


match early voter cast her bal-
lot, after the discrepancy was
understood and the Talla-
hassee system overridden.
This was possible because
the voter was at her office,
but it would not have been
possible at the polls, she said.
Dent said her office strai-
ghtened out most problems
with applications that didn't
match state computers by
calling the applicants with
questions. But presently her
office is waiting to hear from
30 residents whose forms
drew no-match indications
and could not be reached by
phone. Letters have been
sent to the addresses on their
registration forms.
But registration closes at
the end of the business day
Oct. 10. If those "voters" re-
turn from vacation or a sec-
ond residence after that, they
could be denied the right to
vote Nov. 7, or only be allow-
ed to vote provisionally.
Requested fixes
Joining the Advancement
Project in challenging the
practice are Common Cause,
the Florida Public Interest Re-
search Group, the Florida
Consumer Action Network,
the League of Women Voters'
Project Vote, People for the
American Way and others.

groups might consider seek-
ing a federal court order to
end the practice, as was done
successfully in a similar
Washington state case. But
first the coalition has asked
Florida Secretary of State Sue
Cobb to:
Allow voters whose ID
number has not been verified
to verify their numbers at the
polls by presenting a qualify-
ing. ID card to poll workers.
They would be added to the
registration rolls since the
number, which threatened to
disqualify them, had been
verified.
Send a notice to all voters
placed on "hold" by the no-
match notification, explain-
ing their rights to present
identification at the polls.
Post on the Internet a list
of all the individuals on
"hold," and the reason for it.
"Florida is relying on com-
puters to accurately identify
eligible voters in a way that
exceeds the limits of human
error in entering data,'
Maranzano said. "A 'no-
match, no vote' rule will mis-
takenly reject too many regis-
tration applications too close
to the election."
2000
The situation recalls the
infamous list of felons com-
piled by state-hired cdnsul-


etsin
theclty


"A full service mobile
veterinary hospital"


tants for the hotly contested
2000 presidential election in
which the state authorized
loose matching criteria de-
signed to allow a lot of false
positive results.
ChoicePoint, the company
that bought out the state
consultant that produced
that error-prone'database, ex-
plains those events on its
Web site:
"In 1999, DBT employees
assigned to the project ad-
vised the state that the review
criteria developed and re-
quired by the state could pro-
duce a list that would be
over-inclusive. This meant
that the list, as it was design-
ed by the state, could mis-
identify individuals as de-
ceased, registered in more
than one county and/or as
convicted felons, when, in
fact, they were not (and there-
by bar them from voting).
"State officials replied that
was acceptable, because
county election supervisors
were legally required to verify
the information before any
voter was removed from the
registration rolls," when in
actuality, most local offices
had no training or expertise
in tracking down the neces-
sary people or documents to
prove eligibility, or the man-
power, in the days preceding
that election.

SARASOTA COUNTY BRIEFS


Take advantage
of sales-tax holiday

As part of Energy Aware-
ness Month in October, the
Florida Legislature has desig-
nated Oct. 5-11 as "Energy
Efficient Week" and an-
nounced a sales-tax holiday
for new energy-efficient pro-
ducts.
Until midnight Oct. 11, no
sales tax or discretionary sales
surtax (also known as local
option sales tax) will be col-
lected on qualifying sales of
new Energy Star products
having a sales price of $1,500
or less.
A qualifying "energy-effi-
cient product" is defined by
Florida law as only a dish-
washer, clothes washer, air
conditioner, ceiling fan,
incandescent or fluorescent
light bulb, dehumidifier, pro-
grammable thermostat or
refrigerator that has been
designated as meeting or
exceeding the U.S. Depart-
ment of Environmental Pro-
tection's Energy Star program
requirements and having the
Energy Star label affixed to
the product or product pack-
aging.
The qualifying product
must be new when sold. The
sales-tax exemption applies
only to items purchased for
noncommercial home or per-
sonal use, and does not apply
when the product is pur-


chased for trade, business or
resale. Purchases made using
a business or company credit
or debit card or check are not
eligible for this exemption.
For more detailed infor-
mation on the tax holiday
from the Florida Department
of Revenue, read Tax Infor-
mation Publication 06A01-21
at www.myflorida.com/dor/
tips/pdf/tip06a01-21.pdf.
For more information
about energy efficient prod-
ucts, call the Sarasota County
Call Center at 861-5000 and
ask for Sustainable Sarasota.

brush that hasn't made it
down to the curb for pick-up.
Sarasota County will hold
its annual community clean-
up from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on
Saturday, Oct. 7 in the Osprey
community. Dumpsters will

items, scrap materials,
unbundled yard waste and
other materials during this
free event. Paint, pesticides,

munity cleanup.

ership that matches property
appraiser records. Only peo-
ple listed on the county's
records may receive paint.
New homeowners may bring
the deed that shows their


name and address of their
home to satisfy the giveaway
Requirements.
This is a one-time dona-
tion for residents, who can
receive up to 10 gallons of
paint. Residents who have
received free paint in the past
from the county do not quali-
fy for free paint again.
Recycled paint that is not part

chased for $5.35 per gallon.
Colors available are off-
white, Country Blue, Basic

cally by Scott Paint Company.

County approves
paving projects
The Sarasota County Com-
mission approved an exten-
sion of the South County
resurfacing program Sept. 26
to include repairs to River
Road between East Venice
Avenue and Interstate 75 and
key intersection improve-
ments.
The contract for the South
County improvements with
APAC-Southeast Inc. will cost
$334,155 and includes the
milling and resurfacing of
nearly a half-mile of River
Road just south of the 1-75
interchange.
The resurfacing is to cor-
rect where the road deterio-
rated to a point that regular
maintenance will not achieve
the durability for nearly
15,000 drivers who travel this
road each day.
The projects are primarily
funded by infrastructure sur-
tax (1-cent sales tax) dollars.
For information about the
resurfacing project, call 861-
5000 and ask for the Public
Works Road Program office.
Housing trust
homebuyer orientations
Community Housing Trust


has begun holding orienta-
tions for first time homebuy-
ers.
Homebuyer orientations
are a one-hour introduction
that provides a road map for
people interested in buying a
home.
At the end of the orienta-
tion, participants can un-
dergo a homebuyer readiness
assessment so they know how
prepared they are to buy a
house, what price of a home
they qualify for and what their
next step is in the process.
Based on the assessment,
people will be linked with an
array of services including
homebuyer education, credit
counseling and affordable
loan products.
The orientations will be
held in Sarasota, Venice and
North Port. Orientations in
Sarasota will be held on the
second and fourth Wednes-
day of every month at 6 p.m.
at the CHT office, which is
located at 3430 Magic Oak
Lane (the 4600 block of
Fruitville Road) in Sarasota.
Orientations in Venice will
be held Oct. 19 and Nov. 16 at
the Venice Area Chamber of
Commerce, 597 South Tami-
ami Trail, at 5 p.m.
For a complete schedule,
information and registration,

GAS from PageI A


"We have been so busy,"
said Yvonne Jenkins, office
manager at Wandalan. "When
gas prices go down, people are
more inclined to buyan RVand
go on vacation."
"It hasn't affected our truck
business either way," John
Trudeau of Matthews-Currie
Ford, Nokomis, said.
Trudeau said someone who
needs an F-350 diesel truck is
not going to look at a Ford
Focus for fuel economy.
Eric Zee, commercial truck
manager, had a fuel economy
tip.


"Leave the tailgate up," he
said. "Not too many people
realize that when the tailgate
is down your fuel-efficiency
drops."
Slowdown
Bill O'Grady, director of
market analysis for A. G.
Edwards, said there is grow-
ing evidence that the world
economy is slowing and and
so is the demand for oil.
In mid-August there was
an oil find in the deep water
gulf that might be larger than
Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, he said.
This find pokes a hole in the
theory that the world is run-


"I just think the lower
prices are awesome."
Venice resident
Mike Horan


ning out of oil.
He said that it might be as
much as three years before
the oil reaches the United
States, but there is a psycho-
logical factor that lowers oil
prices.
The world central banks
have all been raising interest
rates, which tends to reduce
commodity prices, said


O'Grady.
Money flowing into the
commodity market has slow-
ed down, and that has affect-
ed the oil market.
Whatever the reason for
them, lower gas prices pro-
vide a bit of relief to people
who will soon receive their
,property tax bills.
"I just think the lower
prices are awesome," said
Mike Horan of Venice. "I live
here and even with the lower
prices, I am not going any-
where."

80,000 platted lots," said Sam
Jones, North Port city plan-
ner.
Next came discussion as to
whether the urban service
area boundary had been
moved as a result of JPA talks
several years ago. Black
thought it had; Oldehoff
believed it had not.
"I'm glad to hear that,"
Black said.
"We came to resolutions
(back then) that were never
adopted by boards," Rob-
inson said. "But the issue of


80 percent of our city being
(outside the urban service
area boundary) worries me
that we can resolve this in
time.
"When someone says
North Port growth has an
impact on the county budget,
I want to see numbers on
that. Boil it down to the facts.
What are the services you're
spending more on because of
us?"
Wait and see
* Shelley suggested that they


come up with a process that
would allow the county a shot
at answering such a difficult
question. Black suggested
each city draw up a map of
joint planning areas, so the
county would not have to.
make decisions about how
certain areas are developed.
Shelley thought that was a
good idea and gave both
cities an assignment. ,
"Give me a map of areas
you would want as part of a
joint planning area," she said.
"It may encompass annexed


and un-annexed areas. That
way we can see how far apart
we are."
"We can do that," 'Black
said.
North Port was slower to
respond.
"Sam did a map of areas
around the city, contiguous to
it that could be annexed,"
Robinson said, adding that it
was incomplete.
"Venice has stepped up to
the plate," Shelley said. "We
need something similar from
North Port."


She said that from that
point everyone could discuss
particulars such as utility
agreements, justice agree-
ments and specific areas in
which annexation might take
place.
Before adjourning the
meeting, she announced that
she would be having individ-
ual meetings with both cities
and the county over the next
several days in order. to
"review background on exist-
ing agreements, historical
context and necessary details


that I would need in order to
go forward on the draft."
After the meeting, Shelley
was asked if she thought
Venice might be a bit more
prepared than North Port as
far as having firmly estab-
lished boundary lines.
"Until everybody sees the
maps, we really won't know,"
she said.

OUR VIEW



Officials must explain annexation issues to taxpayers


S arasota County's annexation dispute
with Venice and North Port isn't unusu-
al.
Annexation debates have been going on
for years in Europe, Japan and the United
States.
In 1898 the island of Manhattan, Brooklyn
and three rural counties Queens, Bronx
and Staten Island merged to create New
York City after several years of discussion.
Farmers and ranchers near Oklahoma City
have been battling for their lifestyle. Okla-
homa City now covers 621 square miles.
In 1998 the Indiana Commission on In-
tergovernmental Relations met to discuss
annexation.
Even Salem, Ore., has developed what it
calls its "annexation strategy."
The annexation debate takes place for
many reasons.
Unincorporated areas in Sarasota County


are shrinking. County commissioners have
less territory to oversee. They want more say
in what happens to county land as it gets an-
nexed.
In some states rural residents want more
services, including hospitals, better police and
fire protection, municipal water and sewer,
garbage collection and improved roads.
Municipalities want to improve their tax
base and budgets, so they annex adjacent
areas that include expensive mansions and
space for factories and shopping centers. A
growing population yields more taxes and
grants.
According to a study by the independent
Brookings Institution in Washington, "A city's
ability to annex land from its surrounding
county is a primary determinant of its fiscal
health."
Annexation produces higher bond ratings,
the Brookings study explains. This lowers the


city's interest rates.
"Every city that expanded its boundaries
by as little as 15 percent between 1950 and
2000 had a high bond rating in 2002," accord-
ing'to the study.
"Conversely, all cities with low bond rat-
ings in 2002 are those that had been unable
to expand their boundaries."
David Rusk, former mayor ofAlbuquerque
and an expert on annexation, has conducted
studies that suggest cities are able to annex
land to: (a) produce more jobs, (B) provide
residents with higher average incomes, (c)
experience greater population growth, (d)
experience a smaller difference in the in-
come between residents of the cities and
suburbs and (e) reduce racial segregation.
Critics offer strong reasons to oppose
annexation. Wildlife areas disappear. A num-
ber of wild creatures are now at risk.
Traffic increases. So do accidents and
I


crime.
Farmland that once grew beef or crops is
converted into subdivisions. Those living in
rural areas must pay higher taxes as land
value increases.
Cities already struggle to provide basic ser-
vices, such as parks, water, sewer and smooth
roads. The county is forced to spend millions
on new schools, libraries, and a jail.
Although a hearing was held, taxpayers
Shave largely been left out of the annexation
debate. Officials need to better explain their
positions.
Neither side has thought the subject
through.
We have interviewed both city and county
commissioners. We have heard strong opin-
ions but few facts.
We have 100 days before the county pulls
the plug on discussion. This rush may pro-
duce poor results.

LORRAINE COC ARO
(CO'LMNNIIST1


Are these names new to
you? David Shapiro, Brian
Worthington, Wade Mat-
thews, Debbie Trice, Michael
Keisman, Ernie Zovodnyik.
All are people new to the
political scene but they are
worth your consideration. I
hope that my very brief com-
ments because of space limi-
tations will begin your further
investigation.
At the state level, David
Shapiro is running-to repre-
sent us (District 70) in the
Florida House of Represent-
atives. A 30-year resident of
Florida, he has lived in Dis-
trict 70 for 17 years. Shapiro's
opponent Doug Holder from
the East Coast, has lived in
this district just 14 months.
David Shapiro is a
thoughtful, thorough, re-
sponsible man. One look at
his Web site (voteshapiro
.com) will tell you that. He
lists 11 issues that he feels are
important to us. For each of
the 11 issues he discusses five
to 10 points how the issue
affects you, historical back-
ground, programs tried else-
where, solutions and more.
He knows these issues are not
solvable with sound bites.
On the other hand, Sha-
piro's opponent has a list of
seven issues on his Web site
that he thinks are important.
That is it seven lines, noth-
ing more.
David Shapiro is a lawyer
and that background is an
asset in the Legislature. His
opponent is a real estate
developer.
At the county level there is
a contest for five seats on the
Charter Review Board.
So, what is the big deal
about the Charter Review
Board? The big deal is that the
board can put issues before
the county commissioners
and on the ballot for us to
decide. The present board has
not done that.
The very popular issue of a


voting paper trail, which is
now on the ballot, was not put
there by the Charter Review
Board as it should have been.
It took the tremendous
efforts of Kindra Muntz and
her workers to have thou-
sands "- !yes thousands -
r ,ig petitiion to getthis issue
before A2is.;this November.
? Now; because of their'efforts,
we can vote ,onwhether we
want a paper ballot so that
valid recounts can be made.
We need confidence that we
have a secure ballot.
Never before have we had
so many board seats contest-
ed, probably because the pre-
sent board has not listened to
what the people would like
considered.
In contrast, these new
Charter Review Board candi-
dates, in my opinion, are
tuned in to the people: Bryan
Worthington, Wade Mat-
thews, Deborah Trice and Mi-
chael Keisman.
Finally, Ernie Zavodnyik is
running for a city council
seat. He has the same con-
cerns that we have about
growth, our environment and
affordable housing. He is
worth listening to at the vari-
ous debates this month.
Tentatively, and unofficial-
ly the schedule is:
Venice Aviation Society
Inc., Wednesday, Oct. 18, 7:30
p.m., Community Hall at Ven-
ice City Hall
Sertoma/Rotary, Oct. 19,
noon-1 p.m., Grace United
Methodist Church
Venice Taxpayers League,
Oct. 26, 1 p.m., council cham-
bers at Venice City Hall
Zovadnyik and his oppo-
nent, John Simmonds, will
also be on Channel 21 all this
month answering questions
provided in advance by Pam
Johnson, Venice citizen liai-
son officer.
Democracy asks much of
its citizens. The list of con-
tenders is large and to know
them all and what they stand
for is difficult and time con-
suming.
It took many hours to
research just this small por-
tion of the ballot.
I suggest you clip this col-
umn so that you have some
names on hand to consider
and refer to when you vote on
or before Nov. 7.

No need for paper trail in elections


Editor:
It is my hope we do not vote to change a working election
system for all the wrong reasons.
As a retired senior technology professional from a Fortune
100 company, I find the proprietary nature of Sarasota's current
ES&S touch screen machines and supporting infrastructure to
be extraordinarily secure. Remember we are not talking about
your home personal computer here.
Opponents will throw scary words around (virus, malicious
bugs, static electricity, RF interference) to make their case of
system vulnerability. This is just not the case, and there are so
many checks and balances that it would be impossible for
someone to affect an election in this county. In fact, there is a
comprehensive paper trail printed that can be used to authen-
ticate final totals.
Any election system, be it paper or electronic, must be man-
aged with due diligence, including a strict chain of custody
with the working piece parts. The Sarasota County Supervisor
of Elections Office excels in this task, as its history of providing
fair elections to the citizens of our county proves.
I have firsthand knowledge of the above as I have worked for
the supervisor in various roles since 2002 and can attest to the
professional nature of the team as they triple and quadruple
check voting equipment and processes prior to an election.
In summary, unless the cost saving is significant I cannot see
why we would change our current system that has proven to be
a success in Sarasota County since 2002.

Vote Democratic,

Editor:
Poor President Clinton got
asked one tough question by
a reporter in 14 years and he
fell apart.
I haven't seen him wag his
finger so dramatically since
he proclaimed, "I did not
have sex with that woman."
Must be a nervous twitch
when he lies. I never heard a
former president talk to a
reporter like that: "Wipe that
smirk off your face."
Remember to vote Dem-
ocrat in the upcoming elec-

Islamic terrorists very happy.
They miss the good ol' days
when we just talked and did-
n't do anything.

A reply is needed to Jim
Shea of Englewood and to the
Gondolier Sun.
How dare Mr. Shea ques-
tion the families of an ex-ser-
viceman on what is stated in
their obituary, and the Gon-
dolier Sun for printing his vile
letter.


Seems you like math be-
sides reading obituaries; well,
get it straight. The United
States considers a service
member aWorld War II veter-
an if he or she served in the
Armed Forces from Dec. 7,
1941, to Dec. 31, 1946, not
Sept. 2, 1945.
I am aWorld War II veteran
and my birth date is Oct. 6,
1930. In my Navy class in boot
camp 19 others out of 126
men were also under age. My
brother was handicapped
and could not serve, but our
birth certificates were in
Russian and I used his to
enlist in the Navy with my
father's permission. My father
was proud that I would serve
his adopted country.
Mr. Shea, get a life and stop
picking on grieving families. I
am ashamed that the Gon-
dolier Sun printed your vile
letter.

Editor:
* If the superintendent has
decided to leave this district,
he should do it now.
The school board should
"encourage" him to go now
rather than pay him for a job
that he is not going to do.
Then he can find another job,
and the school board can find
an educator to manage the
problems.
It will be good manage-
ment to correct the problem
ASAP


What if... ?
Editor:
A good question for all
people: If you had it from a
reliable source that the world
was coming to an end tomor-
row, what would you do?
Hope you find this inter-
esting and will give us some
good answers.

Set high standards this election


ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST


Early in the Republican
primary race for the 13th
Congressional district,
Tramm Hudson ran an ad
emphasizing ethics in gov-
ernment. I saw it as distanc-
ing himself from Katherine
Harris' problems illegal
campaign contributions and
attempts to get $10 million for
Mitchell Wade of MZM Inc.
It turned out he had oppo-
nent Vern Buchanan in mind,
not just Harris.
In what became a dirty
campaign that set new lows,
Buchanan won over veteran
state legislator Nancy Detert
by far the best Republican
candidate and Hudson.
Buchanan had the most
money and the most trou-
bling background, which
involves a failed company,
allegations by potential part-
ners in real estate invest-
ments that he did not present
an accurate picture of him-
self, and more. Perhaps he
feels that if Harris could win
here, he should not worry
about voters' feelings about
ethics and low opinions of
Congress.
He is spending more per-
sonal money than in any
Congressional race in the
nation. Will this money and
his attack ad campaign work
against Christine Jennings as
it did in the primary? I don't
think so. I think voters here
are genuinely sick of candi-
dates with big money, nasty
adscahd no substance. There
are enough in Wahington-
now ..,
Christine Jennings, in con-
trast, has-an excellent reputa-
tion among people who know
her best those here in
Sarasota. (Buchanan finished
third here where people know
him, but won in Manatee by
enough votes to prevail.)
Jennings started a career in
banking as a teller at 17. She
worked her way up in bank-
ing, winning confidence and
customers until she was-CEO
and chair of the board of
Sarasota Bank, starting the
first women-owned bank
here.
Republicans for Jennings
Detert and Hudson have
publicly stated they will stay
on the sidelines, refusing to
endorse and support Bu-
chanan.
Detert said, tellingly, "I

would never question her
(Jennings') integrity." (Gon-
dolier Sun/Pelican Press.)
Four members of the local
Republican Executive Com-
mittee resigned their seats to
work and raise money for
Jennings, including a former
chair, Ed, Stafford. Sarasota
banker Jody Hudgins called
her a "fine businesswoman
and a person of integrity." He
and the others began a
"Republicans for Jennings"
group.
Buchanan is now running
an attack ad, saying that she
wants to raise taxes on mar-
ried couples, children, etc. As
she has made clear, she does
not favor ending those parts
of the tax law, only increasing
the share paid by people in
the top 1 percent of income.
Only if you make $250,000 a
year you may be affected.
If you want a U.S.
Representative without a
dirty laundry, one known by
Republicans and Democrats
in the community for service
and integrity, Christine Jen-
nings should be your choice.
Integrity Chapter 2
About a decade ago I wrote
that Katherine Harris was eth-
ically challenged.
In a 1994 race for state
Senate she received $20,600
in illegal contributions from
Bill Griffin, CEO of Riscorp, It
was part of more than
$400,000 in illegal contribu-
tions that landed Griffin in
jail.
Although Harris was in a
small circle of Sarasota politi-
cians with Griffin, had intro-
duced him to various legisla-
tors and sponsored legisla-
tion designed to block Ris-
corp's competitors from get-
ting a larger share of the
workers comp insurance
market, she said she did not
know the contributions were
illegal.
Shewas notecharged with a
crime, bhti her lack 9f avaJe-
n ' -, , a .- ,.. ,
ness _ieneid' unIrtaRik. 5
In 2005 and 2106 l-iarris
once again was unaware that
she was receiving illegal con-
tributions this time
$32,000.
The donor was Mitchell
Wade, the head of a company
called MZM Inc., who was
implicated in the bribery con-
viction of former Rep. Randy
"Duke" Cunningham.
Harris shared a dinner with
Wade that cost him $2,800
according to former Ronald
Reagan aide Ed Rollins, who
was associated with her cam-
paign before resigning after
losing confidence in her. A
representative can take a gift,
including dinner of $50, legal-
ly.
Harris, according to Wade,
spoke with him at dinner
about another fundraising
effort (beyond the $32,000)
and also about a project his

company wanted. Harris
wrote a letter to the
Appropriations Committee
asking for $10 million for
MZM. She says the money
would have funded a project
in this district.
Rollins, interviewed in
CQPolitics; I (Congressional
Quarterly),said he tried very
hard to verify her story but
could find no indication the
project would be located here.
That, among similar doubts,
led to his resignation.
He was not alone. Gov. Jeb
Bush suggested she consider
withdrawing.
This week Harris suggested
a national sales tax. An analy-
sis by the Institute on Tax-
ation Policy said such a
scheme would raise taxes for
95 percent of Florida's taxpay-
ers $4,100 for the lower 60
percent in income. The top 1
percent would save $255,000.
Enough about competence
and ethics?
U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, on
the other hand, has had a
political career in Florida, the
House of Representatives and
Senate that has highlights, not
low-lights.
He serves on the Armed
Forces Committee and the
Foreign Relations Committee,
making him a vital player in
our security and our relations
with the world.
On the domestic front he
serves on the Budget Com-
mittee (supporting balanced
budgets), and on the Com-
mittee on Aging. As head of
the space subcommittee he
was part of the crew on the
space shuttle Columbia, or-
biting the Earth.
He has demonstrated his
ability to work with Repub-
licans and Democrats alike.
His reputation is for integrity.

is no hero in our home.
Disgraceful. Am I the only
one that is absolutely ap-
palled at the appearance of
the United States Post Office
in downtown Venice? The
weeds are 2-1/2 feet high.
Can't someone do something
about the looks of this post
office? All the merchants in
downtown Venice keep their
places beautiful. This is a
place that we should be
proud of a public building
and it is disgraceful.
History check. This com-
ment is to Ray Stoner, the
guest columnist in Sunday's

North Port was named North

on the water so property.
would sell. Actually, the origi-
nal name of North Port was
North Port Charlotte and
Charlotte just got dropped
off. He might want to check
his history.
Atta boy. I'm calling about
the Venice Vikings Pop
Warner football team: Way to
go, guys, way to go. You are
doing an awesome job this
year. I wish the Gondolier Sun
would throw a little bit more
in the paper about you guys. I
know you're going to edit this.
There's not enough on the
Pop Warner team. I'd like to
see more of those kids.
They've been working really
hard this year and they need a
little more recognition. Just


want to let them all know.
Great job. Keep it up, guys.
EDITOR'S NOTE: We feature the
Pop Warner.teams regularly.
Unfortunately, their season coin-
cide falls during'the busiest part of
the year for sports.
On the loose. I'd like to alert
the Golden Beach residents
that a 6-foot ball python that
lives in Golden Beach has
been on the loose twice 'now.
It's the pet of a renter, and the
home owner knows it's there
and doesn't care. It was held
by animal control and given
back with a $35 fine. The
same fine given to owners of
stray dogs and cats. No permit
is needed to keep pythons.
The Fish and Wild Life can't
do anything about it. A fact
you should know is that these
snakes can grow to about 4
feet each year. They eat living
things... mice, rats, cats, dogs
well, you get the picture.
Just keep in mind when you
let your toy poodle out the
back door, he may be the
snake's next meal.
Take them down. Whether
they won the primary or lost
the primary, don't you think
the candidates would have
the courtesy to take down
their signs?
Flooded., Ever since the
school board made a new
entrance to Garden Elemen-
tary School, whenever it rains,
a huge flooding situation hap-
pens, on Center Road. The
school board needs to go back
there and fix the drainage so
there's no accidents happen-
ing with all the cars going
through the deep water at the
new entrance. Come on
school board start acting
like a good neighbor.


Hit-and-run. While I was
shopping at a local depart-
ment store in Venice Sunday
afternoon, I saw a lady driving
a newer-model white Tacoma
pickup truck. She tried to
maneuver her car in between
two other parked cars. I saw
the black pickup truck on her
right-hand side move. She
realized she had hit this car,
so she put her car in reverse
and sped off. There was dam-
age to the right rear side of her
car. It turned out a very nice
couple owned the truck.
Since the lady didn't stop and
give her information, I did. It
was wrong that she just sped
away.
No hero. The four people in
this house were keenly disap-
pointed that the Gondolier
Sun chose to remember Sept.
11 with an above-the-fold,
front-page picture and story
of Rudi Dekkers, a Dutch
national whose company
trained the pilots who de-
stroyed the World Trade Cen-
ter. This served as a puff piece
and an.attempt by him to sell
his upcoming book. In our
opinion he was. looking for
space in all the wire services,
New York Times and on the
Larry King show and other
venues after the incident. He
received more than $33,000
for the pilot training. He was
quoted in the NewYork Times
as saying, "Running a flight
school is just like selling veg-
etables. If they've got the
money, we sell them the veg-
etables." His firm had adver-
tised all over Europe about a
jet flight training school in
Venice. It was no coincidence.
vMr.l.Dek ers was accused otf:
-' al96 'i hrsing an 18-year-'
old girl who worked for him in'
his Venice office. He settled
for a cash payment, and ir
became part of the public
,records when he stopped
payments. I'm sure that her

Yoga on Caspersen Beach
will be back as soon as the red
tide disappears, according to
instructor Nelda Barba.
"Beach yoga was on hold
in August and September
because it is the worst time
on the beach for some of my
elderly customers," said Bar-
ba, "but in season it is beauti-
ful and I'm very busy."
More women than men
take the yoga classes held at
the beach and in Nelda's Yoga
Studio, 439 South Tamiami
Trail, Venice, above Venetian
Cleaners, but she would still
like to expand the number of
men taking classes. Age is no
disadvantage, according to
Barba, who has customers
from 18 to 80.
Interest is increasing in her
pre-natal yoga classes, which
are recommended by doc-
tors, and in private home
lessons for older customers
with walking problems. Call
484-4041.
Another hospital opened
A new and different hospi-
tal opened recentlyjust a,
short distance ftrol Venice

Hoffman decided to combine
their years of skills in the
automobile industry by
opening Car Hospital, 214
Base Ave., Venice, just a block
from the Venice Municipal
Airport.
"People make the differ-,
ence, and we have hired the
best mechanics who can
work on everything," said
Oldfield.
in- the 6,000-square-foot
facility the team of five can
work on six vehicles at a time.
Brands serviced include
Mercedes, BMW, Jaguar, Ford,
GM and others, using state-
of-the-art equipment to diag-
nose any problem from air
conditioning to engine re-
placement.
Oldfield is originally from
Illinois, where for 30 years he
ran a family car-repair busi-
ness that had started in 1932.
He came to North Port three
years ago and worked with
Firestone in Venice. Call 485-
7039.
First Priority
Bank opening
Making its first move south


and selecting a Venice loca-
tion is the First PriorityBank
"We always had plans to
move south, and having a
good relationship with the
owners of the mall, this loca-
tion came up," said George
Najmy, president and chief
executive officer. "Although a
little ahead of our schedule,
we did not want to miss the
opportunity."
The bank is acquiring the
Sarasota Coastal Credit Un-
ion offices, 547 North U.S. 41
Bypass, Venice, in Bird Bay
Plaza. Extensive remodeling
is anticipated to take 60-90
days with an opening expect-

The match


that isn't

Looking at the latest
state volleyball rankings, the
matchup stands out like a
sore thumb.
Instead, it's a very sore
point.
Venice, the No. 3 team in
Class 5A, is not playing River-
view, the No. 3 team in Class
6A.
"It's crazy the two best
teams in the area don't play,"
said Venice coach Brian
Wheatley. "We played in their
gym last year. They were
supposed to come to our
gym this year. They broke
the contract. Theybailed out."
Wheatley said the match
would have been a huge draw.
"We would have packed
the place," he said.
Wheatley pins the blame
on Lady Ram coach Keith
Drake.
"He told me he didn't like
my comments after last
year's match," Wheatley said.
'All I said was that my team
should have won. I didn't
say anything derogatory
about his team."
The girls and the fans are
the real losers.

''After placing eighth out
of 16 teams in last week-
end's Berkeley Prep Premiere
Tournament, the Lady Indi-
ans will try to get it right in
a return trip to Tampa.
Venice is playing in the
Tampa Bay Invitational,
which is a lot similar to the
Berkeley event.
The Lady Indians open
pool play at 4:40 Friday
against West Boca, the No. 9
team in 5A.
At 8 p.m., Venice plays
the No. 10 team in 6A, Cy-
press Bay.
A 9:40 a.m. Saturday, the
locals will take on Bolles, the
No. 3 team in 3A.
Depending on how Venice
does in pool play will deter-
mine bracket play match-
ups. Action will take place at
the University of Tampa and
at Tampa Prep.

This has been bouncing
around in my head a while,
so I figured what the hey.
A lot of school sports
have a mercy rule. If a team
is leading by a huge margin
and a blowout and possible
embarrassment are pending,
the games are shortened or
a running clock is used.
In basketball, a running
clock is used if a team is up
by 35 points.
In soccer, once a team is
up by eight goals, game over.
There is a 10-run rule in
baseball and softball.
.After watching Venice
blow out numerous teams,
maybe they should have a
mercy rule for volleyball.
Like if a team wins the
first, two games by a total of
more than 30 points, call it a
night. Then folks would have
the chance to get home to see
the baseball playoffs.
Girls finish 11-1
The Venice High girls golf
team finished the season with
a record of 11-1 with a 162-
205 victory over Port Char-
lotte Thursday at Port Char-
lotte Golf Club.
Casey Kennedy and Crystal
Smith were low scorers with
36s. Megan Clipse was at 43
and Helene Gagliardi shot a
47. Danielle Killen had a 47 for
Port Charlotte.


Venice High football team's
search for that elusive win
never seems to get easier.
The 0-5 Indians run up
against an offensive jugger-
naut in Sarasota this week.
The non-district contest be-
gins at 7:30 p.m. Friday at
Powell-Davis Stadium.
Sarasota (3-2) can hurt you
manyways.
For starters, the Sailors
have one of the top quarter-
backs in the state. Casey Kelly,
a 6-foot, 5-inch, 195-pound
specimen, has already thrown
for close to 1,000 yards. Nine
of his 66 completions this
year have gone for touch-
downs.


STAFF REPORT


The Venice Vikings youth
football organization took its
act south to North Fort Myers
for Pop Warner Peace River
Conference games against
the Knights.
Venice won two games
and lost three.
Highlighting action was a
thrilling victory by the Venice
Knights in the Junior Pee
Wee division. It took four
overtimes, but the Knights
pulled it out.
The Crusaders were also
victorious.


> In comparison, Venice has
completed just 13 passes this
season for less than 200 yards.
"Casey has gotten an offer
from Tennessee," said Sara-
sota coach Bob Perkins. "He
runs a 4.6 40. He's a big-
time threat. He also plays
baseball."
His favorite target is Trent
Chapman, who has 29 grabs
for more than 300 yards.
Robin Rothenbach has 12
catches for 200 yards and
three TDs. Nestor Casteneda
has 10 catches for 197 yards.
Kevin Crocker has eight
catches for 176 yards and
four TDs.
To boot, Sarasota also has
a dangerous running back in
Ladarius Goggins, who has
gone for more than 600 yards.


The Venice teams are back
home at Letson Stadium this
Saturday taking on the Sara-
sota Sun Devils. .
NORTH FORT MYERS 31,
KINGS 8 Turnovers and
missed tackles plagued the
Kings in this Mitey Mite loss.
The bright spot was the kick-
off return of Andrew Shofner
for the only Kings TD. Block-
ing for Shofner were Garrett
Chiapella, Michael Pietraniec,
Christian Tripp, Benjamin
Nicholas, Jacob Grubbs and
Joseph Morgan. Stone Wilson
Kicked for the two points.
Shofner was also the leading

Red tide in and out


MR. SHEEPSHEAD
FISHING EDITOR


One never knows what to
expect these days with the
red tide. This past Monday
and Tuesday were encourag-
ing. The ladyfish were in
early Tuesday morning at the
North Jetty.
As usual, I missed most of
the action. I walked out there
about 10 a.m. and fortunately
there was no sign of RT/P.
The water on the Gulf side
was exceptionally clear. There
was some bait around, not
as much as I saw last week.
One fisherman was catch-
ing 8-9 inch mangrove snap-
per one after another. I saw a
few fish caught on the Venice
side, but I couldn't see what
they were. If a sea breeze
forms in the afternoon, then


there's a good chance the
red tide will reappear.
Last Thursday evening, I
caught three nice bass in the
neighborhood ponds. This
should improve as the water
temperature goes down. I
had to change to eight-and
nine-inch worms. They were-
n't interested in the six-inch
ones. Go figure, one would
think the smaller ones would
be more natural to them.
Getting back to the in-
shore Gulf. If conditions con-
tinue to improve, maybe the
redfish etc. will reappear. If
things don't get consistently
better, then I'll have to start
writing about' another sub-
ject. Better yet, maybe I'll
take up knitting or embroi-
dery.
I have an old friend, who
happens to be a native
American. Maybe I'll invite
him to visit Venice and per-
haps he'll teach me how to
do a rain dance. Better yet,
maybe he'll teach all of us.
That's it, forget the knitting,
I'll be a rain dance instructor.
Well fellow Sheepshead-
ites, the time has come to say
goodbye until next week.

Dave Hack/ Mr Sheepshead
can be contacted at 486-1998
or 321-8849.


Sarasota is averaging 28.6
points per game.
Defensive coordinator
John Peacock certainly has
his work cut out.
The one silver lining is
that the Sailors defense has
given up lots of yards and
points.
Venice is hoping to cut
down on turnovers and get its
ground game going against
the Sailors.
"Our linebackers and sec-
ondary are inexperienced,"
Perkins said. "If we can get a
couple stops defensively, we
have a chance."
.Tyler Zebkar, who was on
the 2000 Venice state cham-
pionship team, is an assist-
ant coach at Sarasota. He
coaches defensive line.

Osprey Oars wow crowd at Head of the Oklahoma


SPECIALTY THE GONDOLIER SUN

Is the Osprey Oars quad
really this good?
The local rowers returned
from Oklahoma City after a
dominating performance,
winning the 2.5 mile Head of
the Oklahoma by a margin of
26.5 seconds over second-
place Dallas Jesuit and more
than 33 seconds over third
place Chesapeake Boathouse
of Oklahoma City.
It's too early in the season
to evaluate the crew, but as
coach Peter de Manio noted,
"I can't think of a better way
to start the year and we are
looking good at this point."
The top six finishers in the
21-boat fleet qualified to race
in the 500-meter sprint in the
evening, an historic event as
the first-ever USRA sanc-
tioned night race under lights.
Osprey Oars drew starting
position number eight and
faced the challenge of having
to navigate past slower boats-
as they covered the course
in 14:44.144. Ian Stewart at
stroke with Alex Miller, Parker
Lawler and Kyle Schmidt in
three, two and bow seats
quickly overcame some early
season jitters and after the
first 500 meters before they
settled into a strong rhythm.

A head race is where the
boats start individually 10
seconds apart and raced
against the clock. Osprey Oars
passed three of the boats that
started ahead of them and
crossed the finish line over-
lapping a fourth. They had
closed the distance on the
first four by a significant mar-
gin and then had to sit and
wait for the final results. In
about 20 minutes, they
learned that they had won
by a large margin and had
qualified for the 500 meter
evening sprint.
Osprey Oars won the 500-
meter dash in open water .by
more than a two second
margin.
In the night sprint race
where all six qualifiers started
even at the start, they were a
bit slow off the line but quick-
ly assumed control and pulled
away, surging on every stroke
that generated a smooth run
in the boat and crossed the
finish line in 1:34.273. They
broke the overlap over sec-
ond-place Dallas Jesuit, 1:36.

of Chesapeake, 1:36.721.

YMCA celebrates America On The Move Week


BY MARY APOSTOLU
STAFF WRITER


The South County Family
YMCA held two special events
recently in celebration of
America On The Move Week:
First, a bus full of ram-
bunctious YMCA preschool-
ers pulled up to the Senior
Friendship Center on Scenic
Drive in Venice for a quarter-
mile intergenerational walk
on the lovely Pathways To
Health walking path.
The seniors and children
held hands, talked about im-
portant world issues, laugh-
ed, tied shoes and had a
wonderful time getting some
exercise and promoting so-
cial ties as they walked.
After the walk, the chil-
dren were invited to partake


in salsa dancing at the cen-
ter. It was a great way for
both the children and the
seniors to 'get more physical
activity and have fun togeth-
er.
The next day, a group of
hearty walkers braved the
storm clouds and set out on
a brisk 2-mile walk on the
YMCA's walking path 'on
Center Road. Pedometers on
each participant's waistband
counted the steps.
Between the two events,
more than 80,000 steps were
taken that would not have
been otherwise. Making
some simple, easy and fun
changes can have a tremen-
dous positive impact on
health, both physical and
mental.
America On The Move is a


nationwide wellness initia-
tive encouraging individuals
to make small, everyday
changes to their diet and
activity levels to lead a
healthier lifestyle.
For example, walking an
extra 1,000-2,000 steps per day
will burn enough calories to
result in a weight loss and
health enhancement.
If your group (five or
more) would like to have a
walking path mapped out in
your neighborhood or work-
place, call Jennifer Tucker at
the South County Family
YMCA, 492-9622, for more
information on America On
The Move.


You can e-mail Mary
Apostolu at mapostolu@
venicegondoliercom.


Hearty YMCA walkers brave the stormy weather, adding steps to their pedometers.


Preschoolers Stephanie Munoz and Renee Miller, dressed in
their fancy clothes, prepare to salsa dance with Rocco Englese.

Court will decide who owns new beaches


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

A property rights squabble
Over who should own upland
Sandy beach areas created by
publicly sponsored dredging
projects such as the one
about to unfold on south
Siesta Key is before the Flor-
ida Supreme Court, and Sara-
sota County residents have a
stake in the outcome.
On Sept. 26, the county
commission authorized
County Attorney Steve
DeMarsh to file a brief in the
case brought by two groups
on behalf of Walton County
and city of Destin property
L owners. A ruling in their favor
Could threaten future beach
- restoration projects.
S Save Our Beaches Inc. and
I Stop The Beach Renourish-
Sment Inc. oppose a Florida
- Department of Environment-
' al Protection permit to dredge
offshore sand onto 6.9 miles
of eroded beaches damaged
by Hurricane Opal in 1995.
The groups contend an
"erosion control line" estab-
lished along the mean high
water line prior to dredging
will deny beachfront resi-
dents ownership of new
sandy stretches above the
mean high water line and give
it to the state "without just
compensation."
On April 28, the First Dis-
trict Court of Appeal in Talla-
hassee reversed a lower court
decision and ruled in favor of
the groups. If the ruling is
upheld by the high court, the
decision could sour public
support for future beach
restoration projects all over
Florida.
"Although no person chal-
lenged the establishment of
the erosion control line for
the south Siesta Beach Proj-
ect," DeMarsh stated, "there
is a risk that other courts
might apply the Save Our
Beaches decision retroactive-
]\ to overturn other erosion
control lines thrdgou out the
state"_
Chill
Earlier this week, DeMarsh
told the Pelican Press he
doesn't think the unresolved
case will slow an $11.8 million
sand replacement project
that is supposed to get under
way in early November and
recreate a 200-foot-wide
stretch of frontage along
eroded Turtle Beach.
"We will probably file our
brief with the Florida Su-
preme Court by the end of
October," he said. "This case
could chill certain projects in
the future. I don't know what
(Siesta Key) people will do.
They can always make claims.
We'd like the law to be favor-
able to local governments."
In 1995, Hurricane Opal
Struck Florida panhandle
counties and severely eroded
Gulf of Mexico beaches. Wal-
ton County and the city of
Destin initiated a lengthy
process that resulted in the
state placing them on its list
of "critically eroded" beaches.
The process included stud-
ies, construction design and
pre-application conferences
with state officials that cul-
minated in a joint coastal
permit application to dredge
and use "sovereign sub-
merged lands." In 2004, the
state announced it would
issue the dredging permit.
Challenges followed from
groups that questioned
whether the project would
violate applicable water qual-
ity standards and the beach-
front owners' property rights.
Court action began after an
administrative law judge
ordered the state to issue the
permit.
Hard rock
In his report to the county
commission, DeMarsh stated,
"The First District (Court of
Appeal) reasoned that any
statute or other attempt to fix


the public/private boundary
lines on real property bord-
ering navigable water would
be unconstitutional."
If the Florida Supreme
Court agrees, it could result in
south Siesta Key property
owners claiming ownership


of replacement sand spread in
front of their homes upland
of the new mean high water
line. No date has been set for
a resolution of the issue.
Sometime ,after Nov. 1,
when. thesea turtle nesting
season is over, Manson Con-
struction Company crews are


supposed to start pumping
850,000 cubic yards of sand
onto a stretch of shoreline
from 3,000 feet south of Point
of Rocks to the southern tip
of Siesta Key.
It should take between
three and four months to
fully reconstruct the beach,


grade it and clean it up be-
fore the next turtle nesting
season begins on May 1,
2007. While the offshore
sand may appear dark and
gray, experts say it will
bleach in the sun and look
normal over time.
County officials wanted to


get the project under way a
year ago, but state permitting
authorities balked when they
encountered a hard bottom
rock formation that extends
from the Siesta Key shoreline
into the Gulf of Mexico south
of Point of Rocks.
Permit applications were


subsequently altered to
eliminate 3,000 linear feet
and leave a handful of shore-
line property owners without
protection. But the final vol-
ume of replacement sand
was increased from original
estimate of 700,000 to 850,000
cubic yards.

Hands-on defense against invasive intruders

Volunteers yank exotic plants from park.


BY RYAN BOYD
STAFF WRITER


About 20 employees from
Sarasota County Parks and
Recreation and area volun-
teers gathered at Lemon Bay
Park Saturday morning to rid
the park of exotic vegetation.
"All of the parks are doing
exotic plant removals today,"
said Kathi Rader-Gibson, a
park naturalist, who manages
Lemon Bay Park for Sarasota
Parks and Rec.


"It will allow the native
plants to grow in their place,
and bring back the native
habitat," she said.
The employees and volun-
teers were participating in
National Public Lands Day.
This was Sarasota County's
first involvement in the event.
County officials said more
than 100 people participated
in park clean-ups around
town.
Saturday's focus was exotic
plants air potatoes and


Brazilian peppers.
Air potatoes are non-native
invasive vines that infiltrated
Florida from Asia in the early
1900s. They aggressively out-
compete. and displace native
vegetation and the species
that depend on them.
Spoils of development
Brazilian peppers, in com-
parison with air potatoes,
invade aquatic habitats,
greatly altering the native
ecosystem.
"Because of the warm cli-
mate, sometimes plants grow
too much," Rader-Gibson


said. "There are plants in
certain parks that have taken
over. Brazilian peppers and
air potatoes are our main
objectives for the -day."
Rader-Gibson said these
two exotic plants arose in
this area when the Intra-
coastal Waterway was dredg-
ed 50 years ago, and the
dredge spoils was dumped
or the land that's now Lemon
Bay Park
"The native vegetation that
was here was no more be-
cause it (dredging) covered
all of the native habitat,"
Rader-Gibson said


Debby Zeilman, with
Sarasota County Natural
Resources, said the county
aims to clean up the park to
reinforce the area's beauty.
"We're trying to bring the
lands back to natural Flor-
ida," Zeilman said. "We want
to save it, and protect it for
future generations. We're try-
ing to make the community
realize its ownership this
is their land."
Al King, 81, a 10-year
Lemon Bay Park volunteer,
said he takes pride in the
beauty of the park.
"I think it's very important
to clean up exotic plants, but
it's more important to have
the community involved be-
cause this is a community
park and the more people
that get involved, the more
people will enjoy it because
it will b, better kept."

Family size declines, family tensions remain constant


BY RICHARD HARRISON
COLUMNIST


According to the "2004
American Community Survey
Data Profile," the average
number of people per house-
hold has declined from 4.93
in 1890 to 2.76 in 2004. There
are no statistics I can find
that confirm family tensions
have declined as well.
In 1817, Lord Byron
wrote: "I should, many a
good day, have blown my
brains out, but for the
recollection that it would
have given pleasure to my-


mother-in-law..."
In 1931 Ogden Nash wrote:
"One would be in less
danger
From the wiles of the
stranger
If one's own kin and kith
Were more fun to be with."
Judging by the limericks
about families submitted in
the September Write Lime-
ricks --Win Cash contest at
limerickcontests.com, family
stress appears to have re-
mained constant.
Writer, Wayne Edwards
commented:
"My family is really a mess


I'll be the first one to
confess.
The fiance that I had
Got married to Dad
And now she's my Mom,
more or less."

Even the desire to remain
closely knit can backfire, as.
limerick writer Jane Durkin
observed:
"My family's spread far and
wide.
In Singapore one does reside.
At lunch all alone,
I picked up the phone,
'It's 2 A.M. here!' a voice
cried!"


There was no real "family
bashing" in the funny
rhymes received, just a
bemused acceptance of
family foibles as par for the
course.
That's not likely to be so
with the October contest.
The subject is "Politics," and
/early entries are scorching
the mailbox. No one seems
to be "on the fence" when it
comes to partisan vitriol.
The deadline for entries is
Oct. 31. The contest orig-
inators remind writers that
hateful, blasphemous or
pornographic limericks

with special powers. When the body of a
dead student is discovered after a party,
secrets begin to unravel which threaten to
break the covenant of silence that has

Gridiron Gang
Columbia Pictures' Gridiron Gang tells
the gritty and powerfully emotional story
of juvenile detention camp probation offi-
cer Sean Porter (Dwayne "The Rock"
Johnson),-who, along with another officer,
Malcolm Moore (Xzibit), turns a group of
hard core teenage felons into a high
school football team in four weeks.

hatred between his teammates, Porter
teaches some hard lessons (and learns a
few himself) as the kids gain a sense of
self-respect and responsibility. In a world
where 75% of these juvenile inmates
return to prison or meet with violent ends

seemingly insurmountable barriers. No
one wants to compete against convicted
criminals, but through relentless pursuit
and a jolt of inspiration, Porter and his
team fight their way to redemption and a
second chance. 2 hrs.

Extraordinary Exhibitions' entertainment from early America


BYTERRI SCHLICHENMEYER
GUEST COLUMNIST

The last time you saw
something wonderfully
amazing on TV or in the
movies, what did you think?
Were you convinced that you
had just beheld:the most fan-
tastic invention, the.most tal-
ented individual, the most
astounding feat ever?
Or did you just think it was
all done with special effects
that anybody could do, if
given the right equipment?
No big deal.
Is it possible that we've
become jaded?


Years ago, your many-
greats-grandfather would
have marveled' at the mere
sight of a gigantic beast with
grey leathery skin and a long
appendage for a nose.
He might have paid good
money to get a glimpse of the
creature you call an elephant,
because such an animal was
an anomaly to Grandpa. But
how did he learn about the
beast? 'He probably saw a
poster tacked up somewhere
in the General Store.
In "Extraordinary Exhibi-
tions" by Ricky Jay, you can
see, with fresh eyes, some of
the advertisements Grandpa


might have read.
Long before TV or radio,
tacked-up posters were al-
most the only way for people
to learn about coming enter-
tainment in small towns.
Ricky Jay, who is one of the
world's foremost sleight-of-
hand artists and an expert on
"unusual" entertainment,
collects these posters (called
"ephemera") from bygone
days. In this book, you'll see
print ads for intelligent hors-
es, automaton musicians,
pig-faced women, and more.
Imagine the amazement of
seeing an elephant for the
first time. Hard to believe, but


prior to 1776, ni one in
America had glimpsed one of
the giant critters.
When a ship's captain
brought a pachyderm to the
new land and sold it for
$10,000, the man who bought
the animal quickly made his
money back by exhibiting the
elephant to curious folks.
Many of the exhibits in this.
book seem almost' silly now
because we know so much
more about the world and
because so many of the "tal-

make you wish you could
only see the shows once; for


instance, who wouldn't love
to see Signori Spelterihi bal-
ancing a "living ass at the top

"Extraordinary Exhibi-
tions" is a funi book and a
delight to browse, but some
of Jay's language is going to
send you to the dictionary.
Also be aware that many of
the stories are so jaw-drop-
pingly un-PC (in relation to
our times) that you almost
want to cringe when you see
the posters and read Jay's nar-
rative,-particularly in explain-
ing the human exhibitions


and why they were so popu-
lar.
Not that this ruins the
enjoyment of the book, mind
you. It just puts things like
social attitudes into per-

This book is a little on the
pricey side, but if you love
looking at old print advertise-

with "unusual" entertain-
ment from earlyAmerica, this
book is going to be perfect for
you.
Pick up "Extraordinary Ex-
hibitions", because you never
Know if you can believe what
you see.

South Venice shocked by boat crash


ELLEN HILLSTROM
COLUMNIST


The two-boat collision oni
Sept. -27. involved Patricia
MacKenzie, an active mem-
ber of the South Venice Civic
Association. The accident
happened in the Intracoastal
Waterway not far from the
South Venice Beach ferry
landing. It sent eight people
to different hospitals.
Pat suffered the greatest
injury, especially to her face
and head. She was airlifted by
helicopter to Bayfront Med-
ical Center in St. Petersburg,
where she is still in critical
condition.
Her prognosis is hopeful
although she.will need major
reconstructive surgery. Pat's

husband, Mike, was also
injured in the accident but he
is now at home recovering.
Pat, a Venice Realtor, was
membership chair of the
SVCA last year and active in
our 2006 Expo. Last month
she was nominated to serve
on our board of directors for
2007.
She is also active in the
South Venice Garden Club
and a volunteer for Meals on
Wheels. Her many friends in
our community are praying
for her successful recovery.
John Ryan of the Venice
Area Chamber of Commerce
received a number of calls
from people who know the
Pat MacKenzie who is a past
chair of the board of the
VACC. They were relieved to
hear she was not the same
person as reported in the
papers after the accident.
There are two Pat and Mike
MacKenzies living in Venice.
The damaged boats were
towed to Marine Max. The
eight passengers were off-
loaded at our ferry dock area
late that night.
The police sirens, along
with the several ambulance
sirens coupled with the heli-
Scopter landing, created quite
a commotion in our other-
wise quiet neighborhood.
Neighbors rushed to the
scene to offer their assistance.
This is by far the worst
boating accident that our
community has witnessed.
We who know and love Pat are
still in shock.

Association development

Commission rejects Shady Haven project


BY STEVENJ. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

On paper, it was just an-
other petition to rezone land.
In person, it was a passion-
ate four-hour struggle be-
tween two groups.
The Robert L. Anderson
Building .was crackling with
anger, finger-pointing, denial,
sentiment, character assassi-
nation, nostalgia, silliness,
laughter and tears.
When the smoke finally
cleared, developer Mark Flan-
nagan was left with a. mes-
sage: If you want to build lux-
ury homes on the site of
Shady Haven Mobile Home
Park on Old Englewood Road,
you'd better do something to
placate surrounding resi-
dents and trailer owners.
That's how the Sarasota
County Planning Commis-
sion saw it in a 7-2 recom-
mendation to deny Flanna-
gan's proposal.
That recommendation will
be forwarded ,to Sarasota
County commissioners, who
will make the ultimate deci-
sion by mid-November.
The hearing on the contro-
versial development began at
9 p.m.
Dale Austin, president of
the Olde Englewood Village
Homeowners Association,
fired the first shot across
Flannagan's bow when he
said his 200-member group
was solidly against the pro-
posal.
"They are trying to take a
big bite out of a prime piece
of our community," he said.
"They are trying to paint us
into their dreams of what they


think we should look and feel
like."
Shady Haven co-owner
Klaus Allseits, who is selling
the 9-acre mobile home park
to Flannagan for$7.8 million,
:remarked how emotional the
experience has been for him.
"I have been beat up and
bruised up and I'm done," he
said. "I gave these people the
opportunity to buy the place.
They opted not to."
Sore thumb
SOne by one, everyone in
the packed room stepped up
to the microphone to plead
for the preservation of Olde
Englewood or demand that
progress go forward.
By midnight, the nine
bleary-eyed commissioners
had heard emotional testi-
mony from Flannagan, his
associate Brian Lichterman,
Shady Haven residents and
owners, local merchants,
concerned citizens, archi-
tects, lawyers and county
staff.
The controversy focuses
on two points.
First, neighbors feel the
height, shape and "Key West
theme" of Flannagan's town-
homes and condos would
stick out like a sore thumb
next to the homes already
there not to mention that
the new community would
be gated and closed off to its
neighbors, who. currently
enjoy free access through the
area.
Second, trailer park resi-
dents who have sunk many
thousands of dollars into
their homes feel that they
deserve more compensation


than the $1,375 provided for
relocation under a 32-year-
old state law.
Flannagan rejected both
arguments.
"No one who builds a new
home or any type of develop-
ment is going to be compati-
ble with the neighborhood,"
he said to the first argument.
To the second, he offered
condolences and a meeting
with his lawyer for free legal
advice.
Fait accompli
Finally, it was time to hear
from the commissioners.
Commissioner Marianne
Reilly said, "I think what it
does to this neighborhood is
that it drops it into the center
of a community. It becomes
an impediment to the com-
munity."
Vice chair John Fellin
moved to clear the way for
Flannagan.
"The fact is, (tenant) dis-
placement is a fait accompli,"
Fellin said. "Whether.this is
approved or denied, that
hardship and displacement is
going to occur."
Commissioner Terry Turn-
er said he would not support
the motion because "a closed
community inside what is
essentially an open commu-
nityis not the right way to go."
Commissioner Laurel
Schiller said it was "incom-
patible with the surrounding
community, with condos
looking down into their kitch-
ens."
Commissioner Robert
Tripp reluctantly supported
the motion.
"I think the mobile home


park is a thing of the past," he
said.
Commissioner William
Furst supported it, too, with
.reservations.
"If my vote tonight would
save the trailer park, I'd prob-
ably go that way," he said.
"But that's not the vote or the
issue here."
Commissioner Jody Hud-
gins wanted a quid pro quo
for the compensation of 13
park residents who need
financial help to relocate.
"The count I got was 28-21
against," Chair Roland Pic-
cone said. "If we approve
(this), it would not motivate
the petitioner to try any hard-
er in order to come up with
some element of fairness to
get something done with the
folks that will be displaced.
On that basis, I'm going to
vote against it."
Empathy needed
This 5-4 vote prompted a
general need for clarifica-
tions, which required a new
motion.
Turner spoke up.
"It's not consistent with the
comprehensive plan," he
said, and made a motion to
deny the proposal.
In the 7-2 vote for denial,
Fellin and Furst were the dis-
senters. Gruters, who had
originally seconded and sup-
ported Fellin, changed his
vote on the spot, to loud
applause from the audience.
In the end, the drama
meant little.
When this issue comes
before county commission-

Blood test may be alternative

Got lice? Parents scratching their


heads with too much information


'1


SUZY COHEN, R.PH.
COLUMNIST


Q: I think I have an ulcer. I'm
scheduled for a biopsy next
month to see if I have some bac-
teria in me. What do you know
about this process? B.D., Fort
Lauderdale, Fla.
A: I might be able to save
you from an uncomfortable,
unnecessary procedure. Your
doctor is looking for a bug
called H. Pylori, commonly
found in people with ulcers.
If found, you'll be started
on an antibiotic and acid
blocker.
I don't like tubes and
scopes going down my
esophagus, nor am I fond of
anyone scraping things off
my stomach wall (as in a
biopsy), so ifI were you I'd
see if I could take a blood test
first. Labs can see if you have
antibodies to H. Pylori. If you
have antibodies, you either
have H. Pylori or have been
infected in the past. Make
sure your doctor orders a
quantitative antibody test,
not just an H. pylori test. This
will give him much more
information and you can
always get a biopsy later if he


Dan Busch,

still recommends it.
Q: What is the nutrient you
mentioned in a prior column
that protects against prostate
cancer and breast cancer? It has
something to do with broccoli.
- G.T., Albany, N.Y.
A: It's Indole-3-carbonal,
or (I3C), a naturally occur-,
ring compound in crucifer-
ous veggies like cabbage,
cauliflower, broccoli and
Brussels sprouts. I3C and its
byproduct DIM (diindolyl-
methane) can halt the pro-
duction of bad estrogen
byproducts and prevent
dangerous precancerous
cells from sticking to the
breasts and prostate. You can
eat boatloads of vegetables
or supplement with 200 mg
twice daily. Don't overdo it;
I3C can lower thyroid
hormone.
For added cancer protec-
tion, eat lots of colorful fruits,
cook with turmeric and rose-
mary spice and sprinkle
ground up flaxseeds into
your food each day.
Q: Last week you wrote
about progesterone and estro-
gen hormones. What exactly is
a hormone and is it different
from a vitamin? E.M., Silver
Springs, Fla.
A: Hormones are different
from vitamins. Vitamins are
nutrients that help carry out
chemical reactions in the
body. Without vitamins, you
couldn't survive a minute!
One example is with vitamin
B6, or P5P (its active form),
which is used in the brain to


SWhen '11
viewed from
3 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
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.

P.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.

make serotonin, dopamine
and GABA, our "happy"
chemicals. Vitamins don't
generally morph themselves;
they spark a chemical reac-
tion, but stay true to their
own original identity.
Hormones do morph. For
example, progesterone can
turn itself into testosterone,
and morph again into estro-
gen through a series of
chemical reactions. Your
body produces many
hormones they are made
in one place and they catch a
ride in your bloodstream to
travel all over the body and
get the party started some-
where else. The best example
is with insulin, which is
made in the pancreas but
active throughout the body
to help control blood sugar.
In the case of progesterone,
it is produced in the ovaries
until menopause, but its
effect is felt all over, including
the brain, in that it seems to
help with anxiety, migraines
and nervousness.
Did you know? If you are
prone to vaginal yeast infec-
tions, you should minimize
or eliminate high starch, sug-
ary foods. Sugar feeds yeast.

We are called to be the salt of the Earth


DONNA MARTONFI
RtFI fIlUN (O i I f.


For years I have wanted to
write about this particular
subject, and I cannot think of
a more appropriate time than
right now since a very need-
less tragedy occurred recently.
Dorothy Sauve, a young
woman stricken with multi-
ple sclerosis whom my son
knew, and her 18-month-old
baby boy were killed instantly
in a head-on collision. One
other person was killed and
four others were hospitalized.
The driver, who crossed a
solid line and tried to pass
Sauve on a rain-swept curve,
hadabeen:drinking- ..
,.Relatives ,gathered at the
family's home trying to, com-
fort her grieving husband and
console each other. It was
even more heartbreaking
knowing that Dorothy and
her husband Guy had tried for
many years to have a child,
and now their happiness was'
terminated in one disastrous


instant.
This is what has prompted
me to relate an incident that
happened back in 1991. My
husband and I had wanted to
change churches for years.
Finally the Lord gave us the
"go ahead." But, shortly after
transferring we wondered,
What do we do NOW? be-
cause at the new member-
ship meeting, attended by
about a dozen of us, the pas-
tor announced he did not
want any "sipping saints" in
his congregation. This posed
a problem because we had
been given a couple of three-
foot tall bottles of wine at our
25th wedding anniversary
that we intended to keep and
then open at our 50th. So, I
remarked to my hubby, "We
have a serious problem here."
To which he replied, "No, the
pastor has the. problem
because Jesus turned water
into wine, so it must be OK."
I argued that we could not
keep our blinds closed and
run to lock the pantry door
every time the pastor drop-
ped by for a visit, so we had
one of two choices: We would
have to leave this church, or
we would have to get rid of
the wine and then never
touch alcohol again. Since
neither option was accept-
able, I took it to prayer.
As it turned out, during
that same week, my op-
tometrist determined I need-


ed trifocals. He then warned
me, "Make certain that I am
here when you pick them up
so I can teach you how to
wear them." I thought he was
kidding. Don't you just put
glasses on your face and go?
The answer is a great big,
fat, definite "no!" I returned
during his lunch hour and
picked them up from the
receptionist. Within days I
was discombobulated and
totally disoriented. I did not
realize all this was caused by
my glasses. I was tripping
down steps, nearly spraining
my ankles and I was bumping
into door posts and counter-
tops until I was black and
blue all over. I could not even
get my car into a parking
space. After about five at-
tempts to parallel park in
downtown Toronto, I stopped
a man on the street and asked
him if he could put it in the
spot for me.
It didn't take very long for
me to become manic. I was so
wired I was running on sheer
adrenaline. Then, to work off
all this excess energy, I started
scrubbing walls and washing
windows. I continued into the
middle of the night. Since I
was not about to get any sleep
I figured I might as well get
my house all shiny and clean.
As I was filling the kitchen
sink with water at about 4 in

Humanists: No heaven,



hell or personal deity


BY JAN FINDLEY
CORRESPONDENT

Last month, I went to the
monthly meeting of a group
that does. not celebrate the
events of life in a building
devoted to the worship of a
higher being. Instead, this
group meets at a popular ori-
ental food restaurant in Ven-
ice.
They are members of the
Gulf Coast Humanist Associ-
ation. They've been serving
our area since 2004 Eng-
lewood, Venice, North Port
and Port Charlotte.
Many people who call
themselves Christians do not
consider Humanist beliefs to
form a valid religion, while
others are not so sure. Many
Humanists attend a tradition-
al church, some because they
believe to a variable certain
extent in a superior being,
and others because, as one
man I talked with said, "I'm
hedging my bets, just in case."
So what, exactly, are
Humanist beliefs?
In their literature, Human-
ism is described as a "progres-
sive philosophy of life that,
without supernaturalism, af-
firms our ability and re-

sponsibility to lead ethical
lives of personal fulfillment
that aspire to the greater good
of humanity."
Rosemary Hagen, who is
president of the Gulf Coast
Humanists, puts it in a con-
siderably more direct fashion.
She says, succinctly, "My
working definition of a Hu-
manist is one who rejects the


supernatural and believes
that he/she is in charge of
his/her own life." She adds, "A
humanist does not believe in
a personal god or in heaven
or hell."

couple of other folks I ques-

EARTH from Page 14B


the morning my budgie start-
ed eagerly chirping away. I
found this most amusing and
, wished my mother-in-law
I were there to see it because
she tried to convince me that
- "even birds know enough to
sleep when it's dark!" (that's a
long story that I will have to
relate some other time). The
longer my bird chirped the
Sunnier I thought it was until I
was actually laughing out
loud. Remembering that a
good friend gets up to pray at
- 5 a.m., I dialed her number
and blurted into the tele-
phone, "Did you know that


birds chirp in the middle of
the night?"
Still a little groggy, she tried
to convince me it was a bat.
Between wails of laughter I
argued it was a bird. She
adamantly insisted, "No, it's a
bat. I know because I had
one." I was almost hysterical
with laughter and asked, "You
had a bat hanging in a cage
over your kitchen sink?
Whatever for?"
At this point she let me
know that she was convinced
I was as drunk as a skunk.
When I tried to assure her
that I was not, she related


how her husband had come
home just a few days before
and said he saw me bumping
into furniture and falling all
over the place. He said I was
drunk and it wasn't even
noon. He was using this and
the fact that half of the
Christians at my 25th wed-
ding anniversary party were
drinking as ammunition to
get her to let him start drink-
ing beer again. He was an
alcoholic who had fallen off
the wagon once before and
lost his job, his ministry and
almost everything he owned.
Now he was flirting with dis-


aster once more.
Everything immediately
became crystal clear as I
remembered that I had asked
God to sort out the situation
regarding the "sipping saints"
dilemma for me. Choosing my.
words very arefullyI then said,
"Please tell your husband that I
will never take a sip of alcohol
ever again as long as I live and
there will never be any alcohol
in my home from this day for-
ward." I never want to be held
accountable for "making a little
one stumble" because Jesus
said, "Itwouldbe betterforhim
(that man who makes a weak


person stumble) if a millstone
were hung around his neck,
and he were thrown into the
sea." (Mark 9:42 NKJV)
What had I been thinking
all those years prior to this
incident?
I had three teenage sons.
They were watching, learning
and being influenced by what
I did or didn't do.
What example had I set for
them? Why did I take such a
gamble?
Now, a million years older
and wiser, I can truthfully say,
"I don't need alcohol. I don't
miss it and I'm just fine with-


out it." The best part is that I
never have to worry about
being a stumbling-block to
someone, ever again.
There is an entire commu-
nity out there watching,
learning and copying each
.other. What impact are you
having on them?

Have you ever wondered: why the world is filled with sickness and
death? Why does there have to be war? Why can't men live in peace
with each other? Why are some parts of the earth suffering from
drought while others are drowning in floodwaters? Why did God
create us? Why does God allow tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes
and tidal waves? Does God really exist or did we really come from
rocks? Is the universe the act of a benevolent creator or just an
unexplainable accident of random chance?
Is there really only one God? Do all religions worship the same God
under different names? If we all worship the same God, how can
events such as the Holocaust and the 911 attack occur?
Are there really evil men or is there some good in all men? Is there
really a heaven and hell? If I do good things, won't that cancel the
bad and require God to let me into heaven?
The Bible has the answers to these questions and many more. But is
the Bible true or is it just a collection of myths and wishful thinking
on the part of a bunch of Jews?

you into the Bible and help you find answers to questions like those

Advertising's long reach
President Ronald Reagan
was referring to terrorists, not
advertising, when he said
Oct. 11, 1985, "You can run
but you can't hide" but the
statement does apply to
advertising.
Unless you live deep in the
woods without a radio or
portable TV, you will be
exposed to advertising every
day.
How many ads do you see
in a day?
According to MediaAware-
ness Network, a Canadian
nonprofit organization, "The
amount of advertising and
marketing North Americans
are exposed to daily has
exploded over the past
decade; studies show that on
average we see 3,000 ads per
day."
Pull out of your driveway
in the morning, get on the
first main road you take to
work and start counting
backward from 3000.
Advertising's importance to
the economy
It is impossible to overstate
the significance of advertising
on the world economy.
Before the advent of mass
transportation and conunu-
nication, advertising could be
limited to the signs and
posters in one's town adver-
tising goods and services, and
catalogs advertising goods
available only through the
mail.
Another factor motivated
the increase in advertising:
creating jobs and increasing
profits.
Economic progress results
that, depending on your
point of view, betters the
quality of life or doesn't.
But there's no doubt adver-
tising stimulates the e'cono-
m\:. "'" :
President Herbert Hoover,
speaking to a group of adver-
risers and public relations
men in 1928, said, "...you
have taken over the job of cre-
ating desire and have trans-
formed people into constant-
ly moving happiness machi-
nes, machines which have
become the key to economic
progress."
'You've come a
long way, baby'
The advancement of ad-
vertising- techniques rivals
that of flight over the last cen-


tury
A few gallons of paint, a
paint brush and the side of a
barn will no longer suffice.
Today's advertising tech-
niques include:


without having them stand in
front of a TV camera and read
from a cue card.
Marketers now believe it is
more effective to have their
celebrity endorsers hold their

The top three things they

*Ads short and to the point'
*Ability to choose to see an'
ad at their convenience
*When it's personally com--
municated to them by friends

History of Advertising


BYJEFF TAVARES
STAFF WRITER
PHOTOJOURNALIST


The Romans started it
It's hard to imagine today
that advertising was once
simple.
SThe earliest evidence of
advertising that archaeolo-
gists have found comes from
ruins uncovered in the
Roman city of Pompeii dating
back to the 3000s B.C.
In Pompeii, which was lev-
eled in A.D. 79 when the vol-
cano MountVesuvius erupted
leaving several feet of ash cov-
ering the city, archaeologists
uncovered signs on buildings
advertising a business.
One of these painted walls
found in the ruins of Pompii
purportedly shows an adver-
tisement for a tavern.
The Middle Ages relied on
the use of town criers to
advertise their wares. In addi-
tion to reading public notices
and information, merchants
paid these town criers to read
notices praising the mer-
chants goods.
The movable-type
printing press
Next time you go to your
mailbox and pull out 17 unso-
licited envelops hawking


lawn care, home equity loans,
swimming pool service and
new cars, remember Johan-
nes Gutenberg. In the 1440s
he began using the movable-
type printing press for the
printing and mass distribu-
tion of posters and flyers.
So now you know whom to
blame for what is commonly
referred to as "junk mail."
How much junk mail is
there? The numbers are stag-'
gering.
In the book, "Money
Angles," Andrew Tobias states
that "Seven hundred million
trillion tons of junk mail are
sent out across this country
every year." ,
Well, it's not quite that bad.
Other sources estimate
American households receive
between 4 and 6 million tons
of junk mail every year.
Even using those figures, it
takes 100 million trees to pro-
duce that quantity of junk
mail.
The first newspaper ad
The Boston News-Letter.
Ever hear of it?
It was the United States'
first continuously published
newspaper. Its first issue was
April24, 1704.
The newspaper was pub-
lished on what was then
know as "half-sheet." It was a

Johannes Gutenberg


single page printed on both
sides and published weekly.
It was in that year that it
became the first newspaper
in the United States to pub-
lish an ad.
Newspaper advertising
began to look *Iore like
today's ads, when, in the
1730s, Ben Franklin's "Pen-
nsylvania Gazette" started
using large headlines in ads to
draw readers' attention.
The first full page newspa-
per was bought by PT.
Barnum to advertise Jenny
Lind, his latest attraction at
the time. The ad ran in the
New York Ledger.
Radio, TV and the Internet
The 20th century was a
field day for the use of
advertising. The new medi-
ums allowed businesses to
reach millions of people
instead of a few hundred
thousand through newspa-
per ads.
Estimates say the average
person watching 4-1/2 hours
of TV a day will view 25,000
commercials and, in her
book, "Born to Buy," Juliet B.
Schor states that "the average
kindergartner can identify
some 300 logos" and "the
average 10-year-old has
memorized about 400
brands."

Paneled cabinets lend a decorative touch to the eat-in kitchen.


Built in 2002 by Peterson
Homes, a house facing
Blalock Park, is within
walking distance of such
Venice treasures as the Tri-
angle Inn, Venice Art Center,
community center and public
library.
Recently listed by Jeanne
Corbin and Wyatt Brown of
Exit Gulf Coast Realty of
Venice, the split-plan home
features three bedrooms and
two baths.
In addition to its living
room facing the pool and
lanai and formal dining
room, the home has a spa-
cious laundry room with ex-
tra storage and still more stor-
age off the lanai in a closet
designed to hold extra pool
equipment, cushions for pa-
tio furniture or whatever else
needs a hiding place.
The inground pool is the
focal point of the lanai and
back yard. It is heated and has
a built-in, pop-up cleaning
system.
One of the niceties that
resulted from careful plan-
ning as the house was being'
built, is that the pool motors
and other equipment are
tucked away along one side of
the house where they will
cause the least disturbance
while in operation.
Even the mechanism for
the pop-up cleaner has been
located outside the pool cage


instead of adjacent to the
pool where it too often is both
an eyesore and something
that can trip a person who is
walking around the pool.
There is a door leading
from the area of the home's
second bath to the pool area
and an outdoor shower with
hot and cold water adjacent
to the pool.
Landscaping at the back of
the property adds to the feel-
ing of the tropics while pro-
viding privacy.
The home design is Pe-
terson's Gardenia II layout,
which has become one of the
company's most popular de-
signs.
Measuring roughly 55 feet
wide by nearly 65 feet in
length, its floor plan lends
itself to the dimensions of
many city lots, which made it
a good choice for this lot.
Located in the city, the
house has city water and
sewer hook-ups and a well
that is used for landscape
water.
Ceiling fans contribute to
the home's energy efficiency.
Corbin and Brown will
hold an open house at the
property, 432 PensacolaRoad,
on the island of Venice, on
Sunday, Oct. 8, 1-4 pm.
Listed for sale at $599,900,
the house can be seen at
other times by appointment.
For information or to make
an appointment, call Corbin
at 266-7881 or Brown at 408-
3217.


Front elevation of a Peterson-built home being offered for sale
on the island of Venice.


The master bedroom has sliding glass doors to the lanai and
room for a sitting area or lounge as well as a king-sized bed.
