Growth groups look at over-development


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


Got laid?:
Development and sustain-
ability are opposite ends of a
highly charged real estate
debate going on all around us
these days. Developers want
to acquire land and build on
it. Conservationists promote
sustainability, which they de-
fine as the environmental,
social and economic actions
needed to promote a positive
impact on future generations.
"The Cherokee Indians
had a philosophy called The
Seventh Generation Wisdom,"
said Sarasota County Com-
missioner Shannon Staub,
who refers to- herself as Miss
Sustainability. "The elder
council always asked before
any decision they made, what
impact will it have on the
seventh generation?"
Citizens groups have got-
ten into the act, as well.
One such group is The
Lemon Bay League, a consor-


tium of homeowner, business
and nonprofit groups encom-
passing the Englewood area, is
a citizens group \ith sustain-
ability on its mind.
"We've got a serious prob-
lem," said Tom Minnich, 79,
co-founder of the group. "If
we ever get hit by a large
storm here, we're going to
need a lot of body bags, be-
cause there's no way out."
The problem Minnich was
referring to is overdevelop-
ment. .
"We've got to slow down
this development until we
can talk about adequate in-
frastructure to handle the
new development that's
coming this way," he added.
Minnich also maintained
that areas within the Lemon
Bay Watershed must remain
protected. .
"We need a comprehen-
sive plan for the watershed,"
Minnich said. "And that
means protecting against
commercial development,
residential development,


every kind of development."
Platooned
Bill Earl, 63, is a retired
land-use lawyer and a board
member of Citizens For
Sensible Growth in Sarasota
County, which was formed
last year. It has been endors-
ed by the Sierra Club, the
Audubon Society, the Sara-
sota Council of Neighbor-
hood Associations, the Venice
Neighborhoods Coalition and
the Environmental Confed-
eration of Southwest Florida.
"We started out as a group
of 10-12 people," Earl said,
"who literally got worn out,
going to county commission
meetings on every develop-
ment proposal that came
along, which we viewed as
not helpful to the community,
the economy and the envir-
onment. We have 11 board
members and anywhere from
60-100 people we can call on
at any given time."
CSG was organized as a
political action committee to


create more of a level playing
field for residents to counter-
act developers with deep
pockets and big a bitiuons.
"The developers have pla-
toons of lawyers, platoons of
highly paid consultants and
engineers," Earl said. "They
are lobbying the county
commissioners- and staff
every day, every week. The
sad part is the citizens usu-
ally get interested- when they
learn about something at
the end (of the process) and
then have to run to county
commission meetings when
essentially the deal is done."
'Like a charm'
The group has recently put
together petitions calling for
two proposed charter amend-
ments, which it says will pro-
mote slower, more deliberate
growth. It is the hope of the
petitioners to discourage the
spiraling development that
has taken place in Sarasota

Lee County Property Ap-
praiser Ken Wilkinson, a
catalyst of the 1992 Save
Our Homes citizens initia-
tive, filed incorporation. pa-
pers Wednesday for a petition
drive he calls "Save Our
Homes, Part Two."
Wilkinson said the suc-
cess of Save Our Homes
exemptions, which limits a
property's annual appraised
value increase to 3 percent
for a state resident's primary
home, has made revisions
necessary.
"It's been so successful, it
is locking people into their
homes," he said. "The con-
cept was always giving the
homeowners the choice but,
because it has been so suc-
cessful, it hasg created the is-
sue of portability."
Wilkinson said that after
years of double-digit valua-
tion increases statewide,
homesteaded landowners
have been shielded from tax
hikes.
However, because their
exemptions cannot be ap-
plied if they move else-
where, many cannot afford
to leave their tax-sheltered
homes.
"It is not just those who
are planning to retire and
want to downsize but can't
afford that condo," Wilkinson
said. "How about the newly-
wed couple who bought that
starter home, and now they
have three kids and they
can't upgrade' because of the
tax situation?"
.Wilkinson, Lee County
appraiser since 1980, said the
statewide clamor over taxes
will not be resolved solely by
making Save Our Home ex-
emptions transferable.
But it is a part of the
equation.
"I was the one getting the
phone calls in the 1980s,"
he said. "The same thing hap-
pening then is happening,
now, only no longer am I
getting phone calls from
those forced out of their
homes, but from those who


can't move out of
homes."


their


How it could happen
The initiative will be
spearheaded by Save Our
Homes Portability Inc. The
group will have officers and
a Web site by month's end,
Wilkinson said.
While the parameters
could still be "tweaked," he
said, the basic concept is to
allow residents to claim an
exemption of up to 50 per-
cent of the market value of
their former home to their
new home.
That market value cannot
exceed $400,000, so the
most any homeowner could
shield from property taxes in
a move is $200,000, he said.
"That prevents the argu-
ment that it only benefits
the rich," Wilkinson said. "It
also benefits small counties
because it is a percentage of
the market where you sell
applied to the market where
you buy." ) \
There are three,\ways to
get the measure on the bal-
lot, which is necessary be-
cause it would require a con-
stitutional amendment.
* A citizens initiative: Pro-
ponents must gather signa-
tures of 8 percent of voters
who cast ballots in the 2004
election up to 750,000
people.
"It is an arduous task, at
best," Wilkinson said.
State Legislature: A ballot
measure can be authorized
by a three-fifths vote of the
House and Senate.
Legislative review: Gov.
Jeb Bush can appoint a Con-
stitutional Revision Commis-
sion to put it directly on the
ballot.
The foundation for that
process may already be es-
tablished with the June cre-
ation of the 15-member Prop-
erty Tax Reform Commit-
tee.
The panel, which will
meet for the third time Oct.
17 in Miami, is reviewing a
spectrum of proposals. It
will file a first set of recom-
mendations in mid-Decem-
ber.

to adopt the language we

Coca-Cola adds life to its schools contract


Under a five-year extension, beverages
aren't as sweet and neither is
the school district's commission.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Regular carbonated bever-
ages in schools are out, and
diet or low-sugar drinks are
in.
The tradeoff means fewer
dollars in school district cof-'
fers, but potentially healthier
kids.
That's the upshot of a deal
finalized this week between
the Sarasota County School
District and Coca-Cola Bot-
tling Company of Sarasota.
Anticipating the agree-
ment, Coca-Cola made the-
switch in drink mix in all its
high school vending ma-


chines before the school year
even began.
Middle school vending
machines already exclude
carbonated beverages. Only
water and juices are acces-
sible an hour after the
school's last lunch period.
Still sweet
Tuesday the school board
officially signed off on the
exclusive contract, extending
it another five years.
Total value of the contract
package is estimated at $2.5
million.
It includes a $1.10 million
sponsorship premium.
That's down from the $1.77


million premium paid under
the last contract, but school
officials say it's still a sweet
deal.
The change in premium
is due to a new premium
calculation offered by Coca-
Cola and accepted by the
district, according Pat Black,
director of materials man-
agement for the district.
"It's still a good deal in
our opinion," Black said.
"Parents are very much
happy with the new drink
mix."
Not only will students
have access to more-health-
ful juices and soft drinks,
but there are healthy com-
missions on sales in the
cafeteria, vending machines,
concession stands, and at

JULIA DEFOREST STURTEVANT TUTTLE is considered the
"Mother of Miami."Tuttle moved to Miami in 1891. She
purchased 600 acres of land at the mouth of the Miami
River and proceeded to give half of it away to induce oth-
ers to settle there. Tuttle was instrumental in influencing
Henry Flagler to extend his railroad from Palm Beach to
Miami in the 19th Century, a move that spurred Miami to
become the dynamic city it is today. She died in 1898, two
years after the railroad arrived. Tuttle was inducted into
the Florida Women's Hall of Fame in 1984.

Community spirit will

help the Amish recover


There are numerous disas-
ter or disease scenarios where
the infrastructure of society
could become unavailable for
an extended time.
Could you grow your own
food? Supply your own water?
Care for your sick? Live without
electricity? Build your own
home?
The Amish can. The Amish
- and our area's Mennonites
- are some of the world's
most caring and independent
individuals. This week, we
mourned their tragedy. But we
know their community spirit,
work ethic and easy-on-the-
earth lifestyle will help them
triumph in scenarios ,that
would defeat most of us.

Principals endorse learning plan


Turning frowns upside down


School-based administrators reassure the
Sarasota County School Board they support NeXt
Generation Learning.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

School principals and
assistant principals took the
unusual step last week of
endorsing the district's NeXt
Generation Learning strategic
plan adopted by the school
board last year.
There had been specula-
tion in the media by school
board members that some
educators, including princi-
pals, resisted parts of the
plan.
Resistance by school staff
hampered Superintendent
Gary Norris' attempts to kick
start high school initiatives
and foiled efforts by reform
consultants brought in to
help teachers make the tran-
sition, forcing the superinten-
dent to switch consultants.
Norris announced his res-
ignation last month, effective
at the end of the school year,
citing roadblocks to reforms
and NGL.
The School-Based Admin-
istrators Association took a
special vote Sept. 26 to drive
home the point that princi-
pals are on board.


The vote was unanimous,
according to a memo sent to
the school board.
"We feel the initiatives, set
forth by the school board as
school improvement priori-
ties, are essential to our con-
tinuing progress as a school
district," states the SBAA
memo. 'Although we will be
entering a period of transi-
tion, it is our hope that the
school board will continue
with the focus of the NeXt
Generation strategic plan."
Grassroots support
George Kenney, principal
of North Port High and presi-
dent of SBAA, said the vote
was taken to clarify the posi-
tion of school principals and
assistant principals.
"It was our feeling the
school board didn't under-
stand our level of commit-
ment to NeXt Generation
Learning. With the superin-
tendent turning in his resig-
nation, we were concerned
about moving ahead with
reforms in place and not los-
ing time or haying a pause.
"We wanted to assure the
board we are moving in their


right direction with what we
are trying to accomplish,"
Kenney said.
The high school initiatives,
said Kenney, include block
scheduling; moving toward
Small Learning Communities
by promoting career acade-
mies; SRI computerized test-
ing to determine student read-
ing levels; and using the
Sarasota County Planning
Tool designed to expose cur-
riculum weakness in students,
as well as the district's Smart
Web initiative that allows par-
ent online access to student
attendance information.
"We feel the initiatives
already underway are helpful
and want to move ahead con-
sistently," Kenney said.
"We wanted a grassroots
show of support. We're com-
mitted to the path we are on."
SBAA consists of school
principals and assistant prin-
cipals from all 40 elementary,
middle and high schools
within Sarasota County.
SBAA joins a growing list of
organizations that are making
known their desire for the dis-
trict to continue reforms out-
lined in NGL. The Education
Partnership and Citizens for
Better Schools have also
called upon the school board
to continue NGL initiatives.

Al King is Venice's




drainage doctor C 1


BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFF WRITER

When you see the street-
sweeping machine go by, do
you wonder what that guy is
really accomplishing ?
"That guy" is usually veteran
Heavy Equipment Operator
Fred Rhines, who has been
with the city ofVenice for more
than 36 years, and whose work
on the street sweeper is an
essential element of the city's
stormwater system mainte-
nance, according to Storm-
water Supervisor Al King.
"Street sweeping," said
King, "is a vital part of our
total program, :because it
keeps a lot of debris from
entering the stormwater
drainage system which might
otherwise cause serious
blockage problems."
"During the dry season,"
he said, "we may dump one
lbad each day, but during the
rainy season we will dump
twice a day easily. We also
have a second street sweeper
we can bring into service after
a bad storm I just have to
borrow one of the equipment
operators from the public
works department when that
happens.",
"In our last annual report to
the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection," he
said, "which covered fromApril
2005 through March 2006, we
recorded over 1,000 tons of
material from our sweepers
weighed in at the landfill. They
drove a total of 14,794 miles
during that time."
Flood control
Many people do not
know that there is a system
of large stormwater pipes
under the ground separate
from those of the water and
sewer lines
Although gravity serves to
move much of that water
through the system, there is
also a pumping station that
helps to get it through a series
of filters to one of 39 outfall
locations. Those outfalls are
positioned in the Intracoastal
Waterway, the Gulf of Mexico
and several area creeks and
waterways, as approved by
the DEP
The stormwater drainage
system is specially designed
to prevent the accumulation
of water resulting from rains
and storms. When ditches,
swales, grates and pipes are
clear, and everything is work-
ing properly, street and prop-
erty flooding is kept to a min-
imum.
Local flooding can occur,
however, in certain low-lying
areas when there is an unusu-
ally large amount of rain in a
very short time period. Such
flooding problems are often
exacerbated, and can occur
very quickly, by the blockage
of storm drains and catch
basins with debris that has
either been blown or washed
into the streets.
"We encourage people to
report any blockages they
may see," said King. "Res-
idents and people driving
around can call us if they
notice trash or debris which

at a certain location. They can
call my office at 480-3194, or
the engineering office at 486-
2626 to leave a message. We
will get someone out there as
soon as possible.
Ditches, swales and
ponds
Another important ele-
ment in the control of storm-
water runoff is the ditches
and swales located adjacent.
to most properties. In order to
keep water flowing through
these areas rather than back-
ing up, King supervises an
annual cleaning and mainte-
nance program.
"January and February
each year," he. said, "are usu-
ally the driest months, so that
is when we try to systemati-
cally clean out the ditches
and swales, in anticipation of
the rainy season. Last year
(April through March), we
recorded clearing 360 tons of
material out of these areas
around the city."
There are also a number of
retention pounds adjacent to
public facilities that come
under the city's jurisdiction
for inspection and mainte-
nance. Thos e ponds collect
some of the stormwater
runoff up to a certain point
before it is discharged into,
the system, allowing a more
regulated flow at peak times.
"Retention ponds are
much more than decorative
landscaping elements," said
King. "They play an impor-
tant part in the process of
stormwater management."
Age and damage
If a blockage occurs some-
where within an under-
ground pipe, King has a small
remote television camera he
can send into the pipe to
specifically locate and identi-
fy the blockage. Then he can
request the assistance of the
utilities crew and its vacuum
truck, which can clear the
system and restore opera-
tions.
The stormwater system of
underground pipes is occa-
sionally subject to damage by
contractors who do not take
the time to accurately locate
them in advance of digging.
More frequently, however, a
pipe may collapse because of
age, or if the ground around it
collapses for some reason.
"Small sinkholes are not
uncommon in this area," said
King, "because builders and
road contractors in the past
took the liberty of burying
various types of construction
debris, including organic
material. When that material
decomposes, the heavier

public education. Whether

North Port principal wants

superintendent's job


BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
STAFF WRITER

North Port High School
Principal George Kenney is
tossing his hat into the ring
once again for the Sarasota
School District Super-
intendent's job.
Kenney sought the top
education slot three years
ago, when Gary Norris was
ultimately hired. Now that
Norris has announced his
intent to resign at the end of
the school year, Kenney is
once again seeking the job.
"I've had 11 years in this
school district and have been
very involved in many
aspects. For instance, right
now I'm involved in negotiat-,
ing with the teachers' union,"
Kenney said Friday during an
afternoon break in the talks.
He is president of the
School-Based Administrators
Association, and has a doctor-
ate in educational leadership.
Kenney said he under-
stands some of the problems
that have beset the school
district in the past, and feels
that he has a good under-
standing how to make things
work more efficiently.
His experience in North
Port, Kenney said, makes him
especially qualified for the
position.
"I have a clear understand-
ing of the Small Learning
Community concept that the
district is now implementing
in all the high schools,
because we started that con-
cept right here at North Port
High," he said. "Our school
has been a model for the
whole district."
He said he is very familiar
with the procedures and goals
of NeXt Generation Learning,


a program the district has
embraced for all Sarasota
schools.
Kenney added that he has
had a good experience with
the North Port community.
"That community interac-
tion is really important."
The district has had a
problem retaining superin-
tendents, having had nine
over the past 12 years. At last
week's school board meeting
some members suggested
hiring an outside search firm
to conduct a nationwide
search for top candidates.
Kenney said he agrees with
the concept
of conducting ,"
a national "
search but he .' i
also feels that
it's important '
to seek com-
munity input.
Kenney's
candidacy for Kenney
the superin- Kenney
tendent's
position is not yet official'
because the school board
hasn't published formal
notice of the job opening,
Prior to coming to North
Port, Kenney worked at
Lemon Bay High School. He
also worked at Pine View
School for the Gifted.
Kenney is credited with
establishing the academy-
style learning at North Port
High School before it opened.
He also wanted to have a high
school drum and bugle corps
instead of a regular band so
North Port students would
have greater opportunities for
competition and attending
well-known parades.

Ley gets glowing reviews


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

County Administrator Jim
Ley will get high marks next
week when the Sarasota
County com-
missioners
publicly eval-
uate his job
performance,
according to
information
provided by
the county.
Ley "Mr. Ley
Ley continues to
build a solid
team and fine-tune county
government to fit the needs of
the citizens," wrote Com-
missioner Paul Mercier.
"Brought in budget to
allow another village cut ...
raised level of interest and
commitment to sustainabili-
ty; brought initiatives forward
... dedicated to building com-
munity in order to prepare
for a positive future," ec-
hoed Commissioner Shan-
non Staub's evaluation.
From there the praise.
diminished a bit, but only
slightly.
"I have felt frustrated in
some respects this year -
certainly on lack of informa-
tion on (the) stadium conver-
sation," wrote Commissioner
Nora Patterson. "Staffing
issues are getting better, but
we still seem lacking in the
planning department."
But she closed on an up-
note: "I give him high marks,
and any negatives need to be
taken in the context of a very
positive performance over-
all."
Only Commissioner Jon
Thaxton's otherwise rave
review contained any "below
expectations" marks, which
he obliquely referred to as
"Greenland Purchase."
Thaxton's remarks pre-


sumably refer to the only
recent blot on Ley's tenure -
the brief, highly publicized
connection that his wife, real
estate agent Tamara Ley, had
to the county's purchase of
environmentally sensitive
land in Myakka State Forest.
She withdrew from the
deal to avoid the appearance
of conflict of interest, causing
her husband and the board
embarrassment at the time.
The land eventually was sold
to the county for $3.1 million.
The county also provided a
salary survey. For all the heat
the county administrator
occasionally endures, he can't
say he isn't well compensated
for it.
It showed Ley's base salary,
at $203,000, augmented with
$52,634 of enhancements,
including a $26,634 retire-
ment contribution, $20,000 in
deferred contributions, a
$12,000 automobile lease
allowance (included within
base pay), $2,400 to a long-
term care account and an
expense account of $3,600.

have written," Wilkinson said.
"If that happens, we can fold
our tent and go home."
Opposition expected
Making Save Our Homes
exemptions "portable" was
among 100 tax-related bills
considered by various com-
mittees in Tallahassee last
year.
Few made it beyond
committee level.
"We ended up with 10
different versions" of the
Save Our Homes portability
proposal, Wilkinson said.
The only portability-
related bill that made it
beyond the Senate Tax &
Finance Committee, he said,
"was a bait and switch."
That bill doubled the
Homestead exemption to
$50,000, but phased it in
over 10 years at $2,500 annu-
ally.
"That is the bait," Wilkin-
Ison said, noting $2,500 a
year "amounts to nothing."


He said the other element
of the bill "the switch" -
allowed only $100,000 in
assessed value to be "por-
table."
"That means a cap on the
cap," Wilkinson said.
The bill died and Gov.
Bush created the Property
Tax Reform Committee.
Wilkinson said he expects
the Florida Association of
Counties to lobby against
portability with a counter-
proposal to make it once in
a lifetime, limited to within
the same county, with eligi-
bility restricted to those 62
years old or older with in-
come less than $25,000.
"It's frustrating," he said.
"Here they are trying to get a
political benefit when, in
fact, they have just watered
it down. This is why we
formed our own initiative
petition."

school fairs and carnivals.
Coca-Cola agreed to pro-
vide up to $55,000 to upgrade
and repair athletic score-
boards, slightly down from
the last contract but more in
line with actual costs, Black
said.
The district will also re-
ceive a $3,000 scholarship to
promote Coca-Cola's "Live It"
school wellness program.
Nonmonetary benefits in-
clude free athletic field kits
with cups, towels and coolers
for middle and high schools.
Coca-Cola's reading pro-
gram in elementary schools
offers drawings for free tickets
to theme parks for students
who read the most and for
middle school students who
show the best school atten-
dance record. It also provides


gift certificates for the teach-
er of the year and school
employee of the year.
The agreement calls for
free donated products to
schools for fairs and carnivals
- up to $500 annually for
each elementary school,
$750 per middle school and
$1,000 per high school.
Coca-Cola maintains the
right to increase prices in the
third year of the agreement.
It had the ability to raise the
price under the previous
contract but didn't, holding
prices at $1 per drink, Black
said.
New guidelines
The ban on carbonated
regular soft drinks in school
was part of a deal brokered in
May by the Alliance for a


Healthier Generation, an ini-
tiative of the William J. Clin-
ton Foundation and Amer-
ican Heart Association.
Under the agreement the
soft drink industry will vol-
untarily work to make bev-
erages in schools limited to
100 calories per drink in
75 percent of schools by
2008-09 school year and all
schools by the 2009-2010
school year.
The alliance worked with
Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Schwep-
pes and the American Bev-
erage Association to estab-
lish guidelines for healthier
soft drinks in schools.
"We were looking for
changes recommended by
the Alliance," Black said.
"What changed was in high
schools regular carbon-


ated beverages are no
longer sold. Only low-
calorie, diet or reduced-
sugar drinks."
She applauded Coca-Cola
for making the switch be-
fore school started.
"They knew we were
heading in that direction.
They took it upon them-
selves to make the change
in product mix," Black said.
"We think it's a good thing,
and Coke does too."
For school staff who have
a harder time changing over
- not to worry. Teacher
lounge vending machines
will continue to carry regular
carbonated beverages.

GROUPS from Page 1A


,County over the last few
years.
CSG has collected about
7,000 signatures to date for
the petitions, one of which
would require the approval
of voters if the county want-
ed to change a growth
boundary in order to open
up more rural land for the
purposes of urban or su-
burban zoning. The other
would require a "super
majority" of four votes to
amend the county compre-


hensive plan. Currently, a
simple 3-2 majority would
be enough.
"Collier County has had
this super majority require-
ment for many years, and
they say it is working like a'
charm," Earl said. "4t would
in our viewr reflect a greater
community consensus if we
want to increase density or

For the next several days,
residents can save twice when
making energy-efficient pur-
chases: once on the sales tax
and again when using the
energy-efficient device.
During Energy Efficiency
Week, until Oct. 11, retailers
offer sales-tax-free shopping
on some energy-efficient ap-
pliances and products.
Energy Efficiency Week,
designated by Florida Gov.
Jeb Bush and the state Legis-
lature, recognizes the impor-
tance of energy conservation.
The tax-free benefit applies
only to residential consumer
purchases of less than $1,500.
Tips
Following are some of the
low-cost, energy-efficient so-'


lutions available pt most
local retail home improve-
ment outlets:
Compact fluorescent
light bulbs are a bright idea
for energy savings. Replacing
a 100-watt indoor incandes-
cent light bulb with an equi-
valent CFL can save up to $13
a year.
Low-flow shower heads
are inexpensive and easy to
install. Since water heaters
are the third-largest users of
electricity in the average
home, customers can expect
to save about $43 a year after
installing low-flow shower
heads, which use less water
and power.
In every home, heat and
humidity leak in during the
summer and escape in the
winter through the ceilings,
windows and doors. Sealing
your home from the outside


air is one of the most effec-
tive ways to reduce electricity
use.
If your home was built
before 1982, chances are the
home needs ceiling insula-.
tion. Depending on the cur-
rent level of insulation, this
could mean about $66 per
year in energy savings.
Weather-stripping, caulk-
ing and door sweeps help to
seal off windows and doors,
also relieving a home's air
conditioner of extra work.
Combined, these efforts can
add up to an average annual
savings of more than $60.
An A/C filter whistle lets
you know when it's time to
change your system's filter.
Changing filters regularly
helps maintain your system's
efficiency to the tune of about
$22 per year in savings.
Among the products that


quality for the no-sales-tax
benefit this week are dish-
washers, clothes washers, air
conditioners, ceiling fans,
fluorescent light bulbs, de-
humidifiers, programmable
thermostats or refrigerators
that have been designated
as meeting or exceeding the
federal Energy Star Program
energy efficiency require-
ments and has the Energy
Star label affixed to the prod-
uct or product packaging.

County persuaded to ease school site rules


Workshops will address housing concerns


A disagreement about where new public schools
will go in rural areaswas headed for court
because public school officials felt their options
to buy large tracts would be unnecessarily
restricted.


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

Public 'education authoni-
ties have persuaded Sarasobta
County to relax its compre-
hensive plan restrictions on
where future schools can be
built in rural areas east of 1-75,
and avoided a divisive legal
showdown that could have
stretched into next year.
Last week, a split county
commission voted 3-2 to
approve both a settlement
agreement and: plan amend-
ment that will allow school
officials to plan for the con-
struction of new schools east
of a "countryside line" near
three proposed villages east
of the interstate.
"We tried to adopt a com-
prehensive plan that treats
commercial,; -residential, and
government land uses equal-
ly," said Commissioner Jon.
Thaxton, ,who' joined with
Nora Patterson to oppose the
settlement. "Now we're being
asked.to make an "exception
for schools."
On Aug. 22, Commissioner
Shannon Staub cleared the
way for a compromise on
where new public schools can
be builtwhen9shewithdrew her
previous support for a hard
and fast prohibition on middle
schools and high schools in.
areas well east of 1-75.
"We've allowed families to


populate our rural areas," she
said at last Tuesday's commis-
sion meeting. "The school dis-
trict will have to come back
before us with a list of proposed
sites. If we don't agree with
them, we can always put [the
restrictions] back in."
Mistake
At the crux of this dispute
has been the county's effort to
discourage urban sprawl in its
plans for future growth east of
1-75, and the school board's
desire to build in central loca-
tions that serve the new vil-
lages without necessarily
being in them.
"New schools were sup-
posed to be in the villages,"
Patterson complained. "We
made a mistake when we
neglected to include high
schools in them, but I would
include all schools in the vil-
lages." She worried that new
schools will be built outside:
them.
If developers buy into the,
county's plans, new villages
are supposed to be built on a
3,500-acre parcel just south of
University Parkway, a 10,715-
acre parcel between Fruitville
Road and State Road 70, and a
9,078-acre parcel in the,
Palmer Ranch.
School Boaid Attorney
Alan Roddy attempted to
allay fears about urban
sprawl. "This settlement just


maintains the school system's
ability to bring forward pro-
posed sites," he said. "It will
still need the county commis-
sion to approve a rezoning
and special exception for any
of them."

Expected to grow
Public school authorities
who believed their hands
could be tied when they tried
to buy reasonably priced land
for new schools either in or
near the villages challenged
the county's comprehensive
plan tight restrictions and
were prepared to contest
them before a state hearing
officer.
Roddy is employed by a
Sarasota legal firm that repre-
sents the school board. He
served notice the board
would contest the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs' announced intention
to find the county's restric-
tions in compliance with
state law.
There are about 3,800 pub-
lic school students currently
living in the north county
area east of 1-75 and north of
State Road 72. More than
2,000 of them are bused to
school every day, a number
that has concerned state
authorities because it is
expected to grow.
Chief among the state's
concerns has been the possi-
bility that some public school
students whose families buy
homes in the new villages
might have to travel a mini-
mum of 7 to 10 miles to the
nearest middle school and 12
to 15 miles to the nearest high
school.


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

A series of workshops is
scheduled in the next 10 days
by the Sarasota County
Community Housing Office
to solicit help from the public
for affordable housing.
There isn't enough, and the
outlook for resolving the situ-
ation is bleak, according to
The Landlord/Tenant Coal-
ition. A six-month-old organi-
zation formed by frantic low-
income renters and besieged
landlords, TLC has been try-
ing to get the attention of the
board of county commission-
ers to obtain relief, according
to Jude Levy, a spokesperson.
The organization is com-
posed of about 10 percent of
the more than 5,000 landlords
in the county and some low-
income renters. It has been
working with the county and
the state to obtain promised'
zero-interest loans to
upgrade properties for low-
income renters.
"With little success," said
Roy Middleton, a TLC direc-
tor, a property manager and a
real estate agent. .I
Most plans for additional
affordable housing in the
county are three to seven
years in the future.
By 2011, the county has.
promised to add 300 new
units, it was disclosed last
month at a county-sponsored
"summit" on affordable hous-
ing. TLC predicts that 3,000
rental units will be lost in that
five-year period.
"Landlords are bailing out,"


Middleton said., "Taxes, insur-
ance, water and sewer costs are
going out of sight. Just last week
Sarasota announced new fees
for garbage pick-up. It's hard to
stay afloat."
Going up
Non-homesteaded home-
owners will pay more in taxes
in 2007 because. of a 26-per-
cent increase in property val-:
ues, despite a 9.6-percent
decrease in .county taxes.
Middleton said that taxes on a
"four-plex" building (four
rental units under one roof)
he owns rose froin $2,000 to
$6,000 in the past three years.
"Taxes alone are up $100 a
month on each unit," he said.
Tax-increment funding
created by the Florida Leg-
islature was, supposed to be
set aside for affordable hous-
ing, according to Levy.
"But not one unit has been
built," she said. "In the city of
Sarasota those funds are
going to developers of high-
end condos."
Sarasota Commissioner Lou
Ann Palmer has sought help
from the Florida League of
Cities to make the state provide
funding mandated by the
William E. Sadowski Affordable
Housing Act, Levy said.
The burden of housing
costs in nearly every part of the
country. grew sharply in the
past seven years, according to
figures made public Monday.
More than half of all renters in
Sarasota County, spend at least
30 percent, of their gross
income on housing, common-
ly seen as a limit of affordabili-


ty, according to the American
Community Survey, which col-
lected the data.
A low-income renter earn-
ing $6.15 an hour must work
102 hours a week, 52 weeks a
year, to rent a two-bedroom
apartment in Sarasota Coun-
ty, according to a study by the
National Low-Income Hous-
ing Coalition. Only 50 apart-
ments and condominiums
renting for less than $900 a
month were listed in the
Sunday newspaper classified
on Sept. 17.
"TLC has been focusing on
the needs of households mak-
ing $35,000 a year or less," Levy
said. "When they discuss
'affordable housing', the com-
missioners consider people
making $45,000 and up a year.
"They overlook single
mothers, nurse's aides, teach-
ing aides 30 percent of our
population. Those workshops
should focus on those folks."

TO PARTICIPATE
The workshops begin at
6:30 p.m., and are scheduled
for:
*Tuesday, Oct. 10, North
Sarasota Library, 2801
Newtown Blvd., Sarasota.
Thursday, Oct.1 2,
Jacaranda Library, 4143
Woodmere Park Blvd., Venice.
Another meeting will be
held in late October with
community housing providers
to share ideas generated from
the public workshops.

Planners decide on liability, not policy


BY RICK BARRY
PELICAN PRESS

On its face, the issue was:
Uh-oh, not more duplexes on
Siesta Key!
The owners of certain
undersized lots, of less than
7,260 square feet, could,
under an interpretation of
existing law, build two-family
homes on them. Some of
them even have letters assur-
ing them of that right, written
years ago by county planning
officials.
By most interpretations, it
appears they did so in error,
Planning department
leaders now propose cleaning
up the complex issue with a
revision of the local laws gov-
erning zoning and, ultimate-
ly, growth. But it'll take a con-
voluted web of changes to set
things "right" depending
on one's view and righting
the compounding wrongs of
the past.
All during the process,
planners were unsure just
how many of those small,
"nonconforming" lots were
out there when quizzed by
the planning board in July.
Convinced there were at
least 1,000 of them, if not more,
the Siesta Key Association
gathered nearly 500 petition
signatures, accompanied by
dire warnings of population
increases so oppressive that the
key's roads would become
clogged and residents could be
trapped on the island if a hurri-
cane evacuation were ordered.
Then the association's board
voted 14-2 to authorize legal
action if duplex building per-
mits were sold to any of those
undersized-lot owners. It hired
Tampa attorney Theodore
Taub.
Last week, however, after
an exhausting two-month
study involving computer
searches' and document ex-
aminations by a sizeable
Sredin of planning s.atlMei ;.'ie-


planning board learned the
number of lots affected on
Siesta Key: 48. Among more
than 10,000 units total, that's
a potential increase of less
than 1/2 of 1 percent.
Since most of the lots
already have homes on them
- and not all residents will
want to replace their home
with a duplex; and some
might already have a duplex
on them; and 20 of them have
those letters granting them
the right to build one anyway
- the absolute maximum
number of new key resi-
dences that could result from
the code revisions is 48, the
staff told the planning board
Thursday night.
Exposure,
But the actual number is
likely much smaller than that,
they said.
So, in reality, the quandary
facing the nine members of
the Sarasota County Planning
Commission involved neither
planning nor zoning nor den-
sity nor traffic. It was all about
liability, confirmed Planning
Commissioner Jody Hudgins.
"Yes, in the end it was all sift-
ed through a filter of: Which is
the least treacherous path?
Where do we have the least liti-
gation exposure?" he said.
Would the county prefer to
be. sued by residents who pur-
chased lots in the belief they
could build duplexes on them
there are some 1,700 of
them on the mainland, but
no one there has complained
or by the Siesta Key
Association, protesting the
growth in the number of
housing units. There is a state
law forbidding density in-
creases on barrier islands.
It was a close vote, 5-4, but
board members opted.to take
their chances with -the lawsuit
threatened by the Siesta Key
Association, and approved the
changes to clean up the zoning
-' code'anmd comprhlerw4ire'pln.


After learning of staff's tiny
estimate of the number of lots
affected, association Pres-
ident Lourdes Ramirez stood
to restate, very briefly, her
group's consistent stand:
"Please don't increase density
on Siesta Key."
The planning board's
far-from-unanimous recom-
mendation now goes before
the county commission for
final approval, and Ramirez
has said she'll wait and see
what the county commission
does. But she and a small
committee have their board's
OK to initiate legal action
without additional board
approval.
Skepticism
Planning commissioners
- and county commission-,
ers are hoping the associa-
tion won't sue, because of the
minuscule number of resi-
dences involved, and the
expense to both sides.
Don't bet on it. Ramirez
said that if the county com-
mission takes the planning
board's recommendation, the
association will appeal to the
state Department of Com-
munity Affairs. If that doesn't
work, they'll call in Taub, and
go to court.
"You don't think we really
believe the staff's numbers do


you?" Ramirez said. "Oh,
please," suggesting the staff
was trying to sweep ,away an
issue that reflects badly on their
office's past permissive rela-
tionships with developers.
"You know why it's worth
it?" she asked. "There's a prin-
ciple involved.... And every
few years they try to increase
the density on the key. And
we've been fighting it all these
years. I think it's worthy of a
court decision."
Hudgins, who voted with
the majority, nonetheless
.said: "The Siesta Key As-
sociation should be applaud-
ed for working to protect their
island. Their (members) had
enough knowledge and
determination to bring this
issue forward.
"If they hadn't given it max-
imum exposure, I don't think
our staff would ever have
quantified the problem."
Restaurant owner Troy
Syprett (Daiquiri Deck and
Speakeasy) came to the meet-
ing to support the rights ,of
the owners of the challenged
duplex lots. .
"Hey, for the Fourth of July
fireworks, the population of the
key increases four to six times.
And it takes about two hours to
get them off when it's over," he
.said. "Hurricane evacuation
will not be a problem."


New bay bridges in design phase


BYGERALDA. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


With about 11 weeks
remaining for Sarasota County
to meet the U.S. Coast Guard
deadline to remove or replace
the bridges over Dona and
Roberts bay, the county Public
Works Department has begun
designing those two-and five
smaller ones along the 10.6-
mile rails-to-trails corridor.
The trail follows an aban-
doned railroad track that runs
south from Clark Road in
Sarasota to Venice. The board
of county commissioners last
month approved.a $17.5 mil-
lion allocation to replace two
500-foot-long trestles over the
bays, begin work on the other
five and pave the trail.
But hikers, bikers, skate-
boarders and others who
have been using parts of the
trail since last June worry that
their wait to enjoy fhe entire
trail will extend beyond the
Dec. 30 Coast Guard deadline.
The agency oversees
waterway bridge permitting,
a process that typically takes
up to 12 months. In addition,
the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection is
involved. It requires an envi-
ronmental impact statement,
which also takes about a year
to complete.
Further delays could occur
on the two larger bridges.
They are considered historic
landmarks, so the state might

Require, the addition of
facades to give them the
appearance of 1930s railroad
trestles.
Crossing the street
Another complication that
could prompt more delay has
been complaints of some
boat owners in the area. They
have been questioning the
county about the safety of a
channel under a wooden tres-
tle on Shakett Creek. They
have been pressing county'
environmental engineers to
design the bridge that
replaces the trestle to elimi-
nate a sediment build-up.
Oyster beds on each side of
the channel are responsible
for the sediment, according to
Patrick McCarthy, waterways
chairman of the Nokomis
Area Civic Association. He
thinks that can be eliminated.
A boater himself, he said,
"going up Shakett Creek is no
more dangerous than cross-
ing U.S. 41 at Colonia."
More than $13 million has
been spent to date bythe coun-
ty to buy land, remove railroad
ties and put down a shell base.
An additional $3.5 million is
expected to be spent in 2007.
Construction in the next few
months will include paving the
10.6-mile trail, and repairing or
replacing the seven trestles.
Access has been restricted on
the trail by the county because
of the dilapidated condition of
the trestles.

OUR VIEW




Long-term goal of water boards is exclusivity


he term "exclusive" has been heavily
scrutinized as'it pertains to members
of the Peace River Manasota Regional
Water Authority.
The authority and its funding partner,
the Southwest Florida. Water Management
District, long for its members to be exclusive.
That means they would not develop any
water projects on their own, and all of their
water resources would be used to benefit
other members of the authority.
For the record, the authority consists of
Charlotte, Sarasota, Manatee and DeSoto
counties and the city of North Port. All of
those, except Manatee County, mostly rely
on the authority for their water supply.
The idea that the area is growing too fast
for its water supply has been a troubling
thought for some time. Explosive growth in
DeSoto and Charlotte counties has espec-
ially grabbed the attention of the authority
- even as it expands its regional water
plant on Kings Highway


There has been debate about the "gap"!
plan to meet every customer's needs while
the plant expansion project moves forward.
And, there has been debate about how to
meet future needs 10 to 20 years out -
that will exceed the plant's capacity even
after the expansion.
The authority and Swiftmud are on a
mission to remind everyone that all of their
water belongs to the state. And, they would
say, the best way to solve regional water
shortages is for everyone to pitch in their
water resources into one big pot.
Among the authority members, Manatee
County and Sarasota County have been
most stubborn about this idea. Manatee
does not buy water now from the authority
because its own water rates are much
cheaper. It still, however, has a vote on all
water authority business.
Sarasota County has some resources -
most talked about is Cowpen Slough -
that it may want to develop on its own. Any


authority member is welcome to do that.
But, if they want funding from Swiftmud to
develop a water source, then that water
must go into the pot for everyone's benefit.
DeSoto County became the first "exclu-
sive" customer of the water authority. Un-
der the premise of exclusivity, the member
would get all the water it needs, even in
time of drought. There is some misunder-.
standing of the policy, however. Shipping
water from other counties to meet an ex-
clusive member's needs is not likely to
happen, according to Pat Lehman, water
authority director.
First of all, projections for future water
use must be on target. If the authority,
which helps make projections for exclusive
customers, misses the mark, then that cus-
tomer's supply of water is in jeopardy.
There is no policy in place to take water
from, for example, Sarasota County to han-
dle a shortfall in DeSoto County's plans.
So why should anyone be an exclusive


customer?
Right now, Lehman admitted, it does' not
carry strong benefits. But if all customers
become exclusive, it presents a great op-
portunity for planning the most efficient
use of all water resources in the authority's
boundaries.
Some day, Manatee County's needs will
surpass its supply. At that time, with an ad-
justment for rates, it will be a big customer. If
all members, agree at some future date to
exclusivity, it gives the authority the power
to put together a master plan on how best
to use all of those resources.
It is always easier to budget money if
you have several bank accounts to draw
from. That same theory holds true for
water resources.
Right now, it is like climbing out on a long
limb for any member to make a commit-
ment to exclusive status. Before it works,
everyone must buy into the idea and
that is the challenge.


What more is it


going to take? .,/ K


BOB VEDDER



Is it possible to substan-
tially change the way we
deliver education in Sarasota
County? Probably not. At
least that is what superinten-
dent after superintendent has
tried unsuccessfully to do.
Considering there are so
many schools and employ-
ees, it is going to be tough.
You would think there is
something wrong for us to
have four superintendents in
the last 10 years (not includ-
ing the, interim ones). This
suggests that another one
will not be likely to stay here
very long.
So, why is that? Citizens
for Better Schools wants to
find out so we can keep
someone longer in order to
sustain momentum such as
the Next Generation Plan
has built. I applaud them for
that.
Unfortunately, one of the
deterrents is sheer size. If
you look at other large school
districts like ours, it is not
much different.
The New England School
Development Council stud-
ied five states and found the
average length of stay was
three years. The University
of Missouri did a study of
California school districts -
all pretty large and found
the stay was two to three
years, and this year the
Council of Great City
Schools found the average
to be 3.1 years.
So, we are normal -
which is just what we don't
want to be.
Dr. Norris found that
while he had a vision that
was liked by most, trying to
make changes was going to
take more time and stress
than he wanted to deal with.
Part of the problem is that
there is only one superin-
tendent trying to communi-
cate with 40 schools, not
including second-chance
and charter schools. One of
the things I think is needed
is a restructuring that allows
there to be more than one
person selling the programs.
This would be someone that
could spend more time talk-
ing to the employees, getting


input, while trying to sell new
ideas.
Maybe we need a king or
queen who just goes to
schools and communicates
ideas and supports them
and listens. Wouldn't it have
been great to have Wilma
Hamilton and Dr. Norris
working together?
To some degree, we used
to have that when we had
school board members who
spent time in the schools.
The Gina Taylors, Janice
Mes and Caroline Zuckers of
the world spent a lot of time
in the schools, which gave
principals other ears to hear
their challenges. Unfortun-
ately, our current board does
much less of this. Most of
them have jobs or their style
just isn't conducive to this.
Although Dr. Norris ran
into many obstacles, the
biggest was the union. He
went to bat for the teachers
in a way no other super had
done. He found ways to get
them money (which, I might
add, I did not approve of
entirely).
When he set out his vi-
sion, it included big increases
to the union that would
make these teachers the best
paid in the state and above
average nationally. With that,
I think he assumed he would
get some help on issues that
burden a big district like
this. Not only has that not
been the case, but he got a
lot of resistance that looked
insurmountable.
One of the smaller yet
important things that he
wanted was to try to control
the personal days that teach-
ers are allowed.
Currently up to 10 percent
of the teachers can take off
at one time, not including
those that call in sick. There
is a trend around certain
holidays to take extended
weekends, leaving the
schools with classrooms not
properly staffed. The district
proposed in the negotiations
that teachers have to tell
months in advance of days
they want to take. That is
unreasonable, but a solution
is needed.
.More directly related to
teaching our kids, the super-
intendent wanted the ability
to assign a certain number
of teachers rather than use
the archaic system of bump-
ing and seniority to make
changes. He wants the peo-
ple to fit the job.
He had done that in Salina
with principals, with good
success, and knew to really
be good he needed some

LETTERS FROM OUR o gitS



CQG is an open organization


Editor:
Mr. Martin's article on Sept. 29 attempts to again mislead
the citizens of Venice. He portrays the CQG as a power broker
that decides who will or will not be elected to city council.
This is totally untrue.
For the record again, again and again, CQG is made up of
citizens in our community from all walks of life: business
people, retirees, attorneys, accountants, developers, bankers,
community volunteers, funeral home directors. What's
wrong with this? We all use their services when we need
them.
CQG members are not hidden. Our records and mem-
berships are public. Any citizen can be a member of CQG.
Members described above are also the same people who
volunteer in organizations like their church, Little League,
YMCA, service clubs, etc. They are our neighbors.
There are other organizations like CQG that support
candidates. The Venice Taxpayers League and the Venice
Neighborhoods Coalition come to mind. Why not talk about
them as well in your articles? They support and raise money
for candidates as well.
The bottom line is this: CQG supports qualified candi-
dates for city council. We have no power and certainly are
not in any position to decide if an individual can or cannot
run for office. '
If candidates want to talk with us, we listen, and I am
sure the same applies with the taxpayers league and other
organizations. It's the candidate who wins or loses an elec-
tion, based on his or her message and qualifications.
Each of us, all Americans, share one thing when it comes
to electing a candidate: We have one vote and one vote only.
So, Mr. Martin, stop the name calling and references to
the Boones, Harners, Fishmans, Millers and whoever else you
try to portray as influencing elections. We are citizens just
like you and the other individuals in their respective organiza-
tions.
The members of CQG are citizens who share a common
goal for our community. They prove it every day by their
actions and their sweat equity. Write your column, but as a
reporter, show both sides and stop the name references.
The community knows who we are, and we welcome any-
one who wants qualified candidates to represent our Venice
community to become a member of CQG.
CJ. Fishman
Chairman, CQG


Columns told
half the story

Editor:
You cannot purchase
space on the Gondolier Sun's
Editorial page for a political
ad, yet in two issues in a row
the Gondolier Sun allowed
heavy duty, blatant political
ads for newcomer Ernest
Zavodnyik and against in-
cumbent City Council Mem-
ber John Simmonds.
Ed Martin's political ad,
errr, "column," was titled
Time for a Change and it
was a two-column, 11.5 inch
by 4 inch political ad.
It is interesting to note
that the positions Ed Martin
states in his columns week
after week have all been
adopted by Mr. Zavodnyik. If
elected, will Martin sit on
city council or will it be Za-
vodnyik?
In the next issue the
Editorial page featured a po-
litical ad (column) by Herb
Levine titled Time for
Change on City Council,
which trumpeted the need
to elect Ernest Zavodnyik
and in turn berated the citi-
zens of Venice who support
John Simmonds for re-elec-
tion.
What Martin and Levine
did not tell you is that during
the two and a half years Za-
vodnyik has lived in Venice,
he has never applied for or
served on any city of Venice
board, committee or com-
mission and never attended


any city council meetings
until this past month.
John Simmonds has lived
in Venice for 11 years and
part-time for 18 years before
that. He has served Venice
during all 11 years on vari-
ous boards, commissions
and committees and has
been a hard-working mem-
ber of the Venice City Coun-
cil for the past three years.
Experience does count.

Reach out and touch someone


Number, please. I'd like the Venice Gondolier Sun to pub-
lish Vemn Buchanan's and Katherine Harris' and a couple of
others home and cell phone numbers. They keep calling me
with their recorded messages. I'm never home, and I know
they really want to talk to me. So, if I had their phone num-
bers, I could call them back. We all could. I think it would
be a great idea.


Poor instruction. I had a
complaint or a comment on
North Port High School. I
have a granddaughter who
goes there and I was talking
to her Sunday. She's very de-
pressed about her math
classes. She says all the
teacher does all the time is
give them worksheets. She
doesn't do any teaching. Her
mom says, why don't you go
to the math lab? She says,
"Well, I did last year." And
she said the person in the
math lab was one of the
reading teachers. She said
that she wasn't any help,
that she was just there to
keep order and discipline.
We have a serious problem
when teachers are not teach-
ing. This child feels that she
is going to fail this class and
she, has nowhere to turn. I
also would like someone to
answer why children have to
take geometry and algebra if
they have no interest in pur-
suing occupations that might
require that type of math. I
took algebra and geometry
in high school and I've never
used any-part of them since.
I've had four successful busi-
nesses, raised nine children
and I didn't need geometry
or algebra to do it. Why not
give them something that
would help them like
learning how to balance
their checkbook, manage
their finances, budget, shop
'and spend money and
might help them and keep
them from going into debt.
Head north. You had a
very interesting report about
the ga.s prices. It was very,
strange. hpwever.-d that there
'was no mention of the cheap-
er-prices in Sarasota, just alit-.,
tie above us. Returning to1
Venice over U.S. 41 just north
of Philippi. Shores, the prices
range from $2.28 a gallon reg-
ular to $2.39 to $2.42. Maybe
we should have everybody go
just a little bit north of us here
in Venice to get cheaper gas
prices.
Off target. I'm calling
about Time to Get A Grip on
Islam letter from Our Read-
ers. I thought you didn't
publish personal comments
or personal attacks.
EDITOR'S NOTE:The caller was
critical of Muslim extremists but
made no comments about any
individual.
What freedom? I was pretty
chilled to read that employees
at city hall were sent a notice
that they were not allowed to
speak to the media about
Sept. 11 without a clearance.
I can understand that they
should work at their place
of employment and not give
interviews to press, but I think
what an employee does on his
own time is covered by free-
dom of speech, and it's very


disturbing to think that
employees are simply not
told to not waste time on
the job talking to reporters,
but that they felt free to do
what they want. A further
comment is that anyone who
has had anything to do with
the publishing of history
books understands that per-
sonal reminiscences, anec-
dotes, stories of what hap-
pened to people are very im-
portant not only as eyewit-
ness accounts as to what has
happened but also to give
some interest to dates and
treaties and so forth. There-
fore, from the point of view
of education, I see absolute-
ly nothing wrong with some-
one at city hall relating an
anecdote or story to a re-
porter. As far as I know, we're
still living in a country where
there is freedom of the press
and freedom of speech.
No change. I recently visit-
ed a local restaurant. My hus-
band and I enjoyed a deli-
cious fish dinner at an oyster
bar on the water. He paid
our bill and we waited for the
change. It never came. He
had to ask the waitress to
give us our change. She act-
ed surprised. It was great
service and we tipped ac-
cordingly. Has anyone else
found that the restaurants
don't return with your
change from the bill?
Low flying. On Sept. 11, five
years after the terrorist attack,
I was watching the whole
story on TV between 8:30
and 8:45 p.m. when suddenly
I heard a plane over my
house at two different times.
,bnewas very loud. and. very
low and fast. Could that be the
terrorists coming back years
' later? I'm`h senior lady living
alone and it frightened me so
badly I ran into the closet, the
only possible protection I
had. After I'd calmed down
some, I called the police and
asked if they were aware of
the planes earlier. They said
there had been mosquito
patrol planes in Venice about
that time. I said that that was
a very bad day to have very
low planes flying in the area.
And they agreed. On Tues-
day, the following day, I called
mosquito control and told
them how upset I was and
probably others were too
about their decision to
41


choose Monday, Sept. 11, for
mosquito control. I was told
that had been brought up,
but they decided to stick to
their schedule. Let me say
that I am thankful for mos-
quito control. We need it. But
another week or even another
day would have been less
frightening to have loud
planes overhead. You may
think we are safe and they
would have no reason to
come to Venice, but let me
remind you that being close
to the gulf they would not
have to fly over much land to
get here. But an even bigger
reason they could do damage
here is because it was at the
Venice airport that some of
those pilots learned to fly
and lived in Venice during
their training. As a result,
future terrorists may resent
that names and information
were released from here that
helped pin down those at-
tackers. So mosquito patrol,
don't scare us by picking
Sept. 11 in the future to do
your job.
Joint effort. In response to
your question about whether
Venice and Sarasota County
jointly planned to develop in
the Venice area, I would say
absolutely, especially if it
concerns properties in the
roadways and facilities that
the county is responsible for.
I think that's a no-brainer.
Who's right? I'm a little
confused about red tide after
looking at Friday, Sept. 15
Gondolier Sun. On the front
page, you have a picture say-
ing hundreds of dead fish lie
on Venice Beach on Tuesday
as once again red tide affects
the beaches. Page 11, your
fishing columnist says, "I
checked the Venice Jetties
three different days this past
week and the good news is
that the water doesn't have
the fellow tint and only saw a
.total of foun..or five dead fi;sh,
and I wasn't coughing nor did
1 hear any one else coughing."
Now, is the picture right or is
the fishing columnist right?,
EDITOR'S NOTE: Both. Mr.
Sheepshead's column reflected the
conditions he found earlier in the
week. Unfortunately, as we have
learned over the last two years, red
tide outbreaks can hit quickly.
Bad to worse. OK, you've
seen it on the front page of
one of the area's newspapers
that the big three automakers
are going from bad to worse.
That's what happens when we
send all of our money over to
foreign banks to buy their
,cars. The country's falling
apart and we're fighting a war
in Iraq.

flexibility to match skills to
jobs. Certainly in business
we would not survive well
with this system.
There is big resistance to
change. On top of this the
union wants more money.
The district, before the elec-
tion, sold all of us on pay
increases, which included
4.5 percent (on top of 7 per-
cent for a half hour more
school time). Now the union
is balking and already has
got the administration to in-
crease its offer to 5.5 percent,
which includes 1 percent for
some extra instruction tied
to NeXt Generation learn-
ing.
In the past union mem-
bers said they just want to
be paid like others. That
can't now be the case, as they
are the highest paid in the
state and are still not happy.
Dr. Norris went out on a
limb with his board and the
community with the feeling
(if not knowledge) that he
would get buy-in from the
union for his plan. They
have not lived up to that
trust. He would have been
better not to. have given
them millions a year and to
have put it into other things,
like the technical training he
has envisioned.
I .would give the union
the most credit for his leav-
ing. That, is not the only im-
moveable object he is refer-
ring to, but the prominent
one. Of course, he can't say
that because of ongoing
negotiations and his search
for another job. Hopefully,
he will share it with CBS to
help in the future.
Let's hope we can find a
way all parties can accept
enlightened change.

Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice is co-

Philanthropy event at the
Ritz in Sarasota Oct 20. It
will feature Teri Hansen,


head of GCCFOV and Terry
Savage, an author and TV
personality.
It is unfortunate that the
foundation continues to have
its big events in Sarasota
with all these powerful
speakers, even though its
mission is to serve Osprey
to Boca Grande. It is even
benefitting a Sarasota non-
profit organization.

Sarasota County received
an award with two other
counties for its participation
in an energy-saving drive
sponsored by Office Depot.
The plan was to have em-
ployees replace at least one
regular light bulb in their
home with an energy-effi-
cient (and much more ex-
.pensive) one. More than
1,000 employees have done
this, saving more than
$30,000 in energy costs.
The goal is to get each
and every one of us to
change a bulb and the sav--
ings would be enormous.
Until Qct. 11 you can save
sales tax on such bulbs and
other, energy-saving pur-
chases.

The Venice High girls vol-
leyball that has done so well
will be having its last reg-
ular-season home match
next Thursday. The girls
have only lost three matches
this year.
However, better than that
are the golf teams. The girls
and boys teams have both
lost only one match as they
go into district play.

The early classified in-

should search out and de-
stroy the Taliban with every

out reservations of any kind.

A fine might

Deaf or what?


Yesterday, my friends and
I were in the park's pool
when we heard an emer-
gency siren. It blew a long
ways anrd then ,wa w avnr-
ing for a'' bit before we
heard the BIG sirens long
and loud.
We all said, "People aren't
moving out of the way." Why
is that?
People are: 1. Talking on
the phone 2. Playing the
radio too loud 3. Shouting at
the kids 4. Too ignorant and
just don't give a damn.
The solution is to get the
license number and give
them a very hefty fine. As
my gramma used to say,
that'll learn 'em.

It's not red tide,
it's much worse
Editor:
In response to the article
about red tide, I have been
wanting to voice the real
reason for this problem for a
long time.
First, we are the cancer of
the earth. It is mankind that
pollutes the waters.
The garbage from the
New Orleans area and
Mexico are what create the


so-called red tide. It's not
red: tide; it's garbage, feces
and toilet remains in our
waters. Why won't anyone
admit it? Becauseo,,qne
knows what to do about
the waste being dumped
into the water.
On the East Coast there
never will be any red tide,
because there is no waste
from humans being dumped
into the ocean. Think about
it. I have not been to the
beach (which is why I live in
paradise) for more than six
months, because I don't
want the bacteria and waste
on my feet.
Why live in Florida? I
guess I'll move to Ocala and
just live without the beach,
which is what I loved all my
life. So sad, and I'm so dis-
gusted with my world I live
in.
You spend money to ad-
vertise the great beaches.
Ha! I tell everyone up North,
I can't die like the fish and
turtles and everything else
that goes near that toilet
bowl.
Let's see if you dare print
the real reason we have no
beaches.

Dispatchers know emergency medicine


High speed chase leads to drug arrest POLICE BEAT


tion training.
There is a regimen for
training an EMD dispatcher.
It begins with a three-day
course (24 hours).
"Then they are with a
training officer for two
weeks," Pingel said, "during
which time they will get a
pretty good idea of the differ-
ent kinds of calls we get."
The certified training is
done under the auspices of
the National Academies of
Emergency Dispatchers.
Hang up
The calls range from true
life and death medical emer-.
gencies to the slightly stupid.
"One woman wanted to
know how long she could
keep her open can of organic
spaghetti sauce in the refrig-
erator," Pingel said. "We also
get a lot of calls asking for
directions."
Pingel said when they are
not busy, dispatchers always
try to assist the caller with a
nonemergency call.
She also said dispatchers
remind the callers that 9-1-1
should only be used for emer-
gency calls.
Pingel said the emergency
call center takes about
475,000 calls per year.
"We are a busy center,"
Pingel said. "We handle five
fire -rescues Sarasota
County, North Port, Venice,
Nokomis Fire Department,
and Englewood. plus nxo law,
enforcement agencies, the
sheriff and the Sarasota Police
Department."

If you have to make a -1-1
emergency medical call, dis-
patchers are not guessing
when they give you medical
instructions.
"We are certified EMDs
(emergency medical dis-
patchers)," said Ann Pingel,
operations manager for the
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Public Safety Communi-
cations Center. "EMDs can
give prearrival instructions
(from special computer soft-
ware) about how to take care
of the patient until para-
medics arrive, everything
from stopping bleeding to
CPR to having a baby."
About 20 states require 9-
1-1 dispatchers to be certified
EMDs or EMTs (Emergency
Medical Technicians).
Pingel, a civilian, said the
medical emergency (heart
attack, bleeding, stroke, not
breathing, choking, etc.) is
punched up on the computer.
"Dispatchers are trained to
read verbatim from the proto-
col that shows up on the com-
puter," Pingel said, "so there
can be no mistake."
She said reading verbatim
also helps protect the agency
from liability.
Looking for a job?
Pingel said there are 88 dis-
patchers in the 9-1-1 call cen-
te't 67 of whom, are certified
EMDs. There are seven
recruits who are presently
undergoing EMD certifica-

Caught driving 1 mile an
hour over the speed limit, a
man led police on a high-
speed chase resulting in a
drug bust Sept. 30.
While backing up a fellow
trooper, Florida Highway
Patrol Trooper Adam Heinlein
said he kept an eye on his
radar unit while another
trooper was writing a ticket
on Interstate 75, at mile mark-
er 200. Heinlein said he spot-
ted a white Cadillac in the
right-hand lane, traveling at
71 mph, failing to move over
as required by law.
Shawn Edward.Avant, 18,
of the 3200 block of Easy
Street, Port Charlotte,. was
arrested on the charges of
trafficking in cocaine, fleeing
to elude law enforcement
.(high speed), possession of
cocaine and reckless driving.
Heinlein said he got back
into his marked patrol car
and proceeded to follow the
Cadillac driven by Avant.
According to Heinlein's
report, Avant started to drive
erratically, changing lanes at a
"high rate of speed, with total
disregard for other vehicles."
Avant left the highway and
was passing cars on the
shoulder, according to
Heinlein.
Heinlein said he did not
follow dihe Cadillac onto the
shoulder, but continued fol-
lowing Avant from the left-
hand lane.
Heinlein said Avant was


stopped twice by traffic, and
on the second time, he pulled
his vehicle into the median.
Heinlein said he exited his
vehicle, gun drawn, and
ordered Avant and his three
occupants out of the vehicle.
Everyone but Avant com-
plied, according to Heinlein.
Avant ignored three orders
to show Heinlein his hands,
Heinlein said. He then saw
Avant reach down into the
front of his pants.
According to Heinlein,
Avant started to exit the vehi-
cle, then jumped back into it.
Heinlein grabbed Avant,
pulled him out of the vehicle,
and placed him on the
ground.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol report,
Heinlein said he noticed a
large bulge in the front of
Avant's pants. While he was
cuffed, Avant's pants fell
down, revealing a large clear
bag filled with a white power,
later identified as 8.9 ounces
of cocaine.
When asked about the
cocaine, Avant became irate
and combative, refusing to
answer any questions,
Heinlein said.,
Avant was released on a
$11,500 bond. The other three
occupants were not charged.

County wins 'Change a Light'
campaign
Sarasota County was recognized on Oct. 4 in
Washington, D.C., for employee participation in the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's ENERGY
STAR "Change a Light, Change the World"
campaign to reduce energy use.
During September, the National Association of
Counties and Office Depot, which sponsored the
campaign, challenged the nation's 3,066 counties to
collect pledges from county employees to replace
one incandescent bulb or fixture in their home with
one that has earned the government's ENERGY
STAR label.
1,039 of the county's approximately 2,200
employees signed the pledge to save energy by
using a compact fluorescent light (CFL). That adds
up to a savings of 292,998 kilowatts of energy and
nearly $30,000 in energy costs.
"Sustainability has a long history in Sarasota,
and our county is an active partner in the ENERGY
STAR program," said County Chair David Mills. We
work hard to instill a culture of sustainability in
Sarasota County so our employees can lead by
example. We could not be more proud of their
efforts."
For more information about energy reduction, visit
the ENERGY STAR Web site at www.energystar.
gov, or contact the Sarasota County Call Center at
941-861-5000 and ask for Sustainable Sarasota.

Sailors deck sagging Indians


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

The longest season just got
a little bit longer for Venice
High coach Nick Coleman.
Overwhelmed on both
sides of the ball, the Indians
saw their record fall to 0-6
Friday night after a thorough
35-7 whipping administered
by the Sarasota Sailors.
Although the loss was non-
district, it did little to help
confidence and momentum
heading into the two biggest
weeks of the season back-
to-back district games against
Port Charlotte and Lakewood
Ranch;
Two district wins would
put Venice at 2-2 and still
keep slim hopes alive for
postseason.
Coleman's worst season in
his eight-year coaching
career was a 3-6 record in
2001. The Indians could
match that if they finish the
season with three straight
wins.
Venice certainly didn't look
like a postseason team Friday

Dobitsch brothers are aces in the hole


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Brothers Chris and Eric
Dobitsch never gave golf
much thought as youngsters
back in Kutztown, Pa.
, But shortly after the family
moved to Florida in 1998, the
brothers found a set of junior
clubs under the Christmas
tree.
They began to go to Lake
Venice Golf Club on week-
ends with their father Matt,
took a liking to the sport, and
joined the "First Swing"
beginner's program offered
by the Greater Sarasota Junior
Golf Association.
Ray Martinez of GSJGA
introduced the boys to
Jacaranda West Country Club
professional Rich Whalen,
who took them under his
wing .and has helped them
develop into budding talents.
"I was pretty bad in the
beginning," admitted Chris.
"Rich made it fun."
At. the same time, they
were learning the intricacies
that make golf such an inter-
esting sport.
"Golf takes time to get
everything worked out," Chris
said. "It doesn't happen
overnight."
Today, Chris and Eric are
the backbone of a Venice
High team that finished the
season with a record of 20
wins and just one loss.


SUN PHCTO BY CLAUDE LEWIS
Brothers Eric, left, and Chris Dobitsch have been the low scor-
ers on the Venice High boys golf team this fall.


Chris, a senior captain,
leads the team in low average
with a 35.6 norm over nine
holes. Eric, a sophomore, is
second lowest at 37.25.
Chris is known for his
straight and true wood game.
He averages 250 yards off the
tee, while Eric hits the ball 235
yards.
Putting and chipping are
the brothers' favorite aspects
of the game. Both are very
consistent around the greens.
"Over the years, you learn
to see how the greens break,"'
Chris said.
Nobody's perfect, especial-
ly when it comes to a difficult
sport like golf.


Eric gets upset when he
misses short putts.
"It's frustrating when you
don't hit a shot you know
you're capable of hitting,"
Chris said.
During the high school
sesaon, the boys are playing
nearly every day of the week.
They take a break in
November and December to
recharge the batteries, both
phsyical and mental.
"They say golf is 10 percent
physical and 90 percent men-
tal," Chris said.
In January, the winter tour-
nament scene kicks in. The
junior events run right up
through the summer. .,


The 2006 VHS season has
been a memorable one. The
lone loss came to Lakewood
Ranch. The Indians avenged
that by beating the Mustangs
two other times.
"Coach (Marty) Tarala has
been good for us," said Chris,
who also get sa lot of support
from mother Georgeanne.
"Dave and Jim Knott have
been very helpful to us at
Lake Venice."
Next up is the district tour-
nament, which will be played
Monday at Kingsway in Lake
Suzy.
"It's a long course," Chris
said. "If the wind is blowing, it
can be a problem."
The top three teams from
the district will advance to the
regional in Naples.

-The highs and lows of LPGA Qualifier


'BYKENHAGGERTY
CORRESPONDENT

Venice had an intemation-
4ad feel this week as more than
4130 hopeful golfers from
Sound the world descended
on the city or, more specifical-
The Plantation Golf and
Country Club, to take part in
the annual LPGA Sectional
School Qualifying tourna-
Ihent.
As a rollercoaster of emo-
tons, it has no equal. Careers
fand youthful dreams are
either laid to rest or realized.
"'nd as the week progressed,
,the windy conditions during
the second and third rounds
and the fast greens through-
out Friday proved the undo-
ing of many.
At the end of the tourney,
only the top 30 plus ties
advanced to the final qualify-
ing tournament to be held at
the LPGA International
Champions and Legends
courses at Daytona Beach
next month. Even there,
nothing is guaranteed. But for
some, an LPGA Tour card is
there for the taking.
For co-medalist Angie Hill
(tied with 19-year-old
Nontaya Srisawang from
Thailand), the final round on
the Bobcat course proved
huge. Having played for only
six years, the former College
of Charleston standout shot a

career low of 66 that included
seven birdies and a lone
bogey. Her 60-foot birdie putt
from the fringe on the par-4
no. 2 and a birdie on the par-
5 13th simply blew away the
competition.
However, it's not that easy
for some. "I'm just glad it's
over," said Tara Bateman. The
leader going into the final
round, her +1 (73) eventually
took her to third place. With
16 pars and a birdie on the
8th, the 2002 Texas Women's
Open champ and Baylor
alumni was relieved this, her
fourth attempt, finally


opened the doors to Daytona.
"I just took my time," she said.
"I knew I didn't have to be
aggressive that was my
strategy today."
For the first time in many
years, there was no local play-
er in the mix, but Katie
Bakken from Minneapolis
has a connection to Venice. A
member of the European
Tour, Bakken cites former
Indians varsity golfer and
Bogey's Hall of Famer Cheryl
Maize as a good friend and
playing partner.
Understandably, the im-
mediate future for Bakken


leaves little time for relaxing
as she flies to Dubai for the
Euro Tour finale in three
weeks and then heads for
Daytona. Althotigh she failed
to get her LPGA card last year,
missing the cut by four shots,
she's undaunted by the pres-
sures of the coming golf
tsunami. Going into the club-
house Friday at +6, she was
relieved for a second chance.
"Last year (at Daytona) was
disappointing, but the Euro
Tour has helped me keep my
game up to scratch. I'm look-
ing forward to the coming
weeks I feel confident
about my game and I'm hit-
ting the ball well."
But of course there are the
losers. With everything to play
for, but potentially nothing to
gain, many leave Venice dis-
appointed. On Friday morn-
ing Joanna Whitley, at nine
over, was still capable of pro-
gressing to Daytona. But 18
holes later and near to tears,
costly mistakes on the greens
led her to admit this could be
her last visit to Venice and a
chance of making the Tour.
"I had a great front nine, but
my game fell apart after the
turn," she said. "This game
is proving too costly. I'm just
not sure ,what the future
holds."
It's a sentiment many will
be contemplating this week-
end.


Nokomis teenager

a real Road Warrior


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Cory Scott may only be 16
years old, but he's not afraid
to rub fenders with the griz-
zled veterans who drive in
Charlotte County Speedway's
Road Warrior division.
Last Saturday, Scott held
off two drivers who are no
strangers to victory lane. He
went on take the checkered
flag in the 25-lap feature.
Road Warriors are low-
budget 8-cylinder bomber
cars that are fan favorites at

the Punta Gorda paved oval.
Three cars separated from
the rest of the field as the race
wore on. Scott's No. 48 Monte
Carlo was fiercely challenged
by the No. 30 of Dan Benoit
and the 18 of Shane Leonard.
Scott did not wilt under the
pressure.
It was the second win in
young Scott's career. His other
win came when he finished
second to Allen Moyer, -but
bounced up to first when the
74 car was disqualified in
post-race technical inspec-
tion.
"When you're out front,
time goes slow, but when
you're in the back, it goes by
fast," surmised the Venice
High student. "I've been up


there, but I haven't had much
good luck."
The first week of the fall
season, the No. 48 lost its
power steering. Then next
week, the rear end failed.
Scott got his first taste of
racing from his father Alan,
who used to take young Cory
up to East Bay to watch fellow
Nokomis resident Tim George
drive a sprint car.
Then Cory. got .into go-
karts, racing at tracks in
Lakeland, Zephyrhills, East
Bay and DeSoto.
Alan ended up buying a
Road Warrior car from Don
Justice and Dar Houghtaling,
who raced in that division at
Charlotte County Speedway.
Cory drove that car pow-
ered by a 305 cubic motor
inch in the spring. Then the
Scotts fielded a new Monte
Carlo. This one has a. 350
motor and is much-quicker.
"The best part is driving
through traffic," Scott said.
Sponsoring the 48 car are
Scott Roof Cleaning, Sign
Masters, Venice Wrecker and
Watertite Roofing.
"I'm hoping to move up,"
Scott said. "I'm still learning
in this division. I was offered a
Fastruck ride, but I wanted to
stay and get more experi-
ence."

Rosemary Beach residents
don't water lawns.
They don't even have
lawns.
Residents of this planned
community in northwest
Florida use water almost ex-
clusively for drinking, swim-
ming and boating.
Community planning
codes include plant specifica-
tion. When someone plans
his house, he must submit
landscaping plans along with
architectural plans and exte-
rior color schemes to the
planning board and to the
town's esthetics.board.
"Indigenous plants are al-
lowed," Rosemary Beach
Managing Director Kenneth
Gifford said. "Palms are ex-
cluded because they take
away view corridors as they
age."
Designed by city planners
Andres Duany and Elizabeth
Plater-Zybert, Rosemary
Beach incorporates many of
the same traditions of city
planning that John Nolen
used when designing Venice
back in the mid-1920s. While
there is little of the Italian
Renaissance style found in
Venice, there are plenty of
other similarities, including
the incorporation of lanes
and small park areas as well
as a handsome boulevard.
Compared to Venice
Venice is much larger and
less of a walking community
although those who live in the
areas known as the Historic or
Theme districts ofVenice eas-
ily can walk or bike to down-
town shopping, the commu-
nity center, art center, library
or beach.
Where the two gulf coast
communities differ most is in
their landscaping plans. No-
len employed Harvard Uni-
versity-trained landscape
planner Prentiss French, who
had worked with the sons of
famed Central park designer


Frederick Law Olmsted.
French arrived in Venice
before the first street was
paved, established a land-
scape'nursery and supervised
the planting of the live oaks
that' now tower over Venice
Avenue and other areas of
Venice.
While I did spy some oak
tree varieties at Rosemary
Beach, the similarities stop
there. I also managed to find
one palm tree in a side yard,
possibly smuggled in by its
owner.

Xeriscaping on steroids
Taking xeriscaping to the
next level, the Rosemary

incorporate acres of raked
gravel or sand, which might
be expected from the literal
translation of the word


"xeriscape." The word is
derived from the Greek word
"xeros" for dry and the word
"scape," which means, a
scene. Dry scenes are not to
be found at Rosemary Beach.

Ocelots are small, beautiful and down to just 80 in the wild


An ocelot is often mistaken
for something it isn't possi-
bly a jaguar, which is much
larger and marked entirely
with rosettes, or a margay,
which is smaller and has a
longer tail. The black-bor-
dered brown spots on an
ocelot's gray to tawny gold
pelt include rosettes, rings,
slashes, bars and speckles.
One thing about ocelots is
certain, they are in deep trou-
ble as a known species in the
vild in North America. Esti-
mates indicate there are only
about 80 alive right now.
I Ocelots weigh between 24
and 35 pounds. They're about
three to four-and-a-half feet
long. Habitat includes Okla-
homa and Texas, small parts
of Arkansas and Louisiana,
and southeastern Arizona.


They like forested and brushy
areas, including chaparral.
Ocelots living in forested
areas tend to be golden in
color, while those in more
arid locales tend to be more
grayish in color. They're also
found in Mexico, Central and
South America.
The ocelot is an extremely
good climber. I've seen them
catch birds perched in trees.
Their diet includes mice, rats,
rabbits, snakes, lizards, fish
and frogs, as well. Sometimes
they attack small domestic
animals.
Like most wild cats, ocelots
tend to choose a solitary life,
though they occasionally
hunt in pairs. And like most
wild cats, they're nocturnal,
resting during the daylight
hours. Their meows sound a
great deal like domestic cats.
They've been hunted for
their beautiful fur, and ocelot
kittens have been sold as pets.
The pet kittens often grew up
into unpredictable and wild-
acting adults, however. Both
practices are illegal in the
United States now. Hopefully,
being fully protected by law
will help us maintain ocelots
as a wild species in our coun-
try.
Sarasota resident Larry
Allan is an award-winning
photographer See his work at

Your best bet for seeing an ocelot like this in the wild is in the Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge, along the Rio Grande River in
southern Texas.

WELL-BEING


That Subway guy comes to town


,BY COURTNEY LINN
;STAFF WRITER

Obesity is an ever-growing
problem in America. And, it is
,growing more rapidly in chil-
Sdren. In an attempt to help
,combat this problem, the
iAmerican Heart Association
,has enlisted some celebrity
'help.
Jared Fogle, more com-
;monly known as the Subway
Iguy, came to Phillippi Shores
,Elementary in Sarasota on
,Sept. 27 to help educate kids
!on how easy it can be in our
society to become obese.
, Children sat in awe as they
-looked at Fogle's legendary
!pants and listened to Fogle's
story.
Jared's story
As is well-known, Fogle lost
,'245 pounds by eating two
1Subway sandwiches a day. He
told the students at Phillippi
Shores Elementary that his
weight gain was gradual. He
Cited television, video games


and eating too many sweets
as the key contributors.
When Fogle was over-
weight, it used to be painful
for him to walk short dis-
tances because of all the extra
weight. Fogle stated all of the
things he could not do be-
cause of his size: ride in the
back seat of a car, fly on an
airplane or go to a movie.
It was, however, the diag-
nosis of sleep apnea that
caused Fogle to decide to lose
the weight. He said he felt as
though someone was chok-
ing him while he slept.
At his university, he walked
to Subway every day and had
two sandwiches a day. In the
first three months of Fogle's
diet, he lost 90 pounds. After
a year, he lost 245 pounds.
A reporter from his uni-
versity wrote an article
about what Fogle had done.
The article was picked up
by local news and then
went national. Subway con-
tacted Fogle, and the rest is
history.


Fogle was relieved to have
lost so much weight. He stated
that he got his life back once
he did. He said his self-esteem
improved, and he became
more active and was in less
pain.
That Subway guy
Fogle is exactly as he ap-
pears on TV in his ads. At
6 feet, 2 inches and 190
pounds, he doesn't appear to
have let celebrity go to his
head.
Fogle has been a spokes-
man for Subway for seven
years, which he said is atyp-
ical for endorsers. He has
had the weight off for eight
years.
Comedian Jon Lovitz can
now be seen in Subway ads.
Fogle said those ads are
completely independent of
his ads.
"Subway has always had
multiple ad campaigns.
That's just another cam-
paign," Fogle said.

Subway is Fogle's full-time
job. On the side, Fogle is a
motivational speaker and
leads talks like the one at
Phillippi Shores Elementary.
He has recently released a
book called "Jared, the Sub-
way Guy: Winning Through
Losing: 13 Lessons for Turn-
ing Your Life Around." He is
currently taking part in a
tour promoting the book.
"I am on the road 200
days out of the year," Fogle
said.
When not on the road,
Fogle returns to his native
Indianapolis, Ind. Recently
divorced, Fogle remains
busy.
Fogle cites moderation
as the key to maintaining
his smaller frame. He still
eats junk food, but only in
moderation. The main
things Fogle avoids are sug-
ared soda and deep-fried
foods.
Subway is partnered with
the American Heart Associ-
ation, which is why Fogle

was in town. He was also
scheduled to appear at one
of two of Florida's heart
walks on Sept. 30.
Fogle feels he will eventu-
ally leave the limelight.
"I will continue to do it


(the endorsements)," he
adds, "as long as it remains
fun and people like it."

When'
viewed from
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

By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist

Q. For the past 5 years I
have protected myself from
loud noises yet my hearing
continues to decline. Can
you suggest anything to
which will reduce or stop
my continued hearing loss?
A. Most causes of hearing
loss are never known.
Medications and diseases
associated with small vessel
disease are the major
concerns. Arthritis, diabetes,
and heart disease are all
associated with a higher
incidence of hearing loss.
Smoking, which creates free
radicals, has been
associated with increasing
the probability of hearing
loss. Anti-oxidants, such as
vitamin E have been
associated with the
prevention of noise induced
hearing loss. Unfortunately,
even if you live healthy and
take all precautions
possible, the majority of us
will slowly develop hearing
loss. The inner ear hair cells
do not replace themselves
and once they are lost, their
function cannot be
recovered. This is why an
annual hearing examination
by a certified Audiologist
should be part of every
persons health plan. Call
the Audiologists at
Woodmere Hearing and
Balance Center, Inc. at
(941)492-4327 or (941)206-
2136 today to schedule your
audiologic assessment.

BEACH from Page 1B
part of Florida.
Tree/lawn areas that sepa-
rate roadways and sidewalks
have no grass. Instead they
have artfully planned areas of
low growing flowering plants
just enough medumn-eight
trees to'create sHide'f6r walk-
ers yet not impede the views
of the beach and other scenic
areas. Views are designed into
the town plan. Maximizing
the number of homes that
enjoy gulf views was accom-
plished by stepping houses so
that no house is immediately
behind another house but set
sideways just enough to give
gulf views to inhabitants of
each house.

Grass is greener here
There are fewer than a
dozen areas featuring grass
within the entire community.
The Eastern and Western
Greens lead to beach walk-
overs and serve as green
spaces for croquet and other
games requiring lawn area.
There also is grass--.along
Scenic.Rpute 30A, which runs
through Rosemary Beach and
contains bike paths, foun-
tains and park benches. St.
Augustine Park, which is
about the size of Blalock Park
in Venice, is the only other
major grassy area. During my
visit, one of the greens was
used as the site of a wedding,
with a tent set up on part of
the lawn area.
Mondo grass was the only
low-growing grass to be seen
in private yards. Many yards
had interesting paths of
pavers or large stones set in
areas of small stones and then
edged with low-growing

plants. A few yards contained
small plunge pools or reflect-
ing ponds or a fountain that
provided the soothing sound
of running water. Com-
munity pools located strate-
gically throughout Rosemary
Beach negate the need for
private pools.. Just. 30 of the
450 homes already\ built in the
c6mmu Uity' ha\e' sftimming
pools. Most of those are
smaller plunge pools.
Community is key to the
plan. Every house has a front
porch. All have some form of
seating. Getting to know your
neighbors is encouraged.
Biking and walking also are
encouraged. Walkers were
evident on nearly every lane
or road in the community
while I was there, especially in
the morning or at dusk.
At dinner time, more peo-
ple could be found dining
outside of restaurants rather
than inside, despite the
humidity during my visit.


During daylight hours,
there were always a few peo-
ple on the grassy areas, which
truly had greener grass than
that ustially found in
Southwest Florida. Though
few and far between, the
lawns were green and lush
but more like putting greens
2-- great for bare teet-'or for6
games like croquet.

Saw Randall Jones the
Other day, walking down the
street about 10 yards behind
his true love, Marcia Fleming.
The look in his eyes as he
watched her up ahead of him
was just pure pathetic. Moon-
calf eyes, I think they call it.
Randy is about the most
bashful high school kid when
it comes to girls that we've
seen since we were his age.
And Marcia Fleming, decent
girl that she is, still wouldn't
throw Randy a towel if he
were drowning.
Randy, Randy. Ever since
you practiced for your prom
date with Marcia by kissing
your horse, and then were
dumb enough to tell her


about it, we've been worried
about you. Oh, you're a good
guy and none of us older
types around here would
mind you asking our daugh-
ters out, if we had any. You're a
good kid, sure enough. But
man, are you dumb!
Marcia broke your date
when you told her about the
horse, of course. And you're
the only guy in the valley who
was surprised. You know, we'd
sit down here and try to
explain things to you if we
though it would.help. We'd
tell you that girls re hyn.anl
rand have, feelings,,too, and;
some of them actually appre-,
ciate having a nice young fella
around arid interested in
them. But to you, Randy, the
entire world of girls, a good
half the population of the
world, consists of Marcia.
Marcia, who haunts your
dreams at night and your day-
dreams as you care for your
animals in the afternoon.
Marcia, who traps your eyes
as she walks more elegantly
- in your eyes than any
covey of movie starlets, beau-
ty queens, or fashion models

Sins against our seniors


VIRGINIA DEUPREE
COLUMNIST

Round and round the spi-
ral goes and where it stops,
ain't nobody knows. We all
mutter and sputter at the spi-
raling cost of food, gasoline
and just about everything. Is it
harder on today's families
than it was on Depression
families? I dunno! One thing
for sure, today's families
expect to have more than they
did then, don't you think?
We old-timers that went
through the Depression can
at least relate to this letter my
sister sent to her granddaugh-
ter. About the time my sister
and her husband were about
to be married, they lost much
of their savings in the 1929
stock market crash or in the
bank holiday that followed.
My sister was a college gradu-
ate and a home demonstra-
tion agent and if I remember
correctly was married in the
late 1920s. The following is an
excerpt of the letter, answer-
ing what she went through
the depression.
"We lived through the
worst of the Depression when
we were first married and

before the twins were born.
Grandpa and I had some
money saved up when we got
married so we had been able
to buy necessary furniture,
etc. and still had some
reserve. I tried to get a teach-
ing job at the worst of it but
didn't get any. Grandpa was
or the "extra list" of the Grand
Trunk Railway for almost 12
years so we had to have a tele-
phone so he could get his
"calls." He was laid off for the
years 1931 and 1932 and not
even on the extra list.
"Sometimes we needed
extra groceries like flour, etc.
and we'd have to dig deeper in
our reserve. We were both
pretty well supplied with
clothes I could make my
own and alter others as well.
"Things were picking up by
the time the twins were born
but it was still a pinch. We
could never afforded Pamp-
ers and baby food the babies
now have. I'd puree vegeta-
bles and can them for the
babies.
"Perhaps all this explains
one reason why we still don't
buy anything until we can pay
for it. Why we still are uneasy
unless we ,have a ready
reserve to fall back on if need
be, why we are still not extrav-
agant and perhaps don't even
buy things we should.
"We wouldn't want to go
through the experience again
but as we look back, there is
not bitterness or too much
sadness, we were healthy and
young. Love, Grandmother"
My friend, Jeanne, said in
the Depression her father lost


his job and they had to move
to her grandparents farm
where he became a farmer.
They always had plenty to eat
but no luxuries. They got an
orange and some mixed nuts
at Christmas, but her brother
and she were happy and did-
n't realize they were poor until
years later. At least they
weren't in food lines as many
professionals were at the
time.
Some of you remember
that jobs were nigh impossi-
ble to get back then. My
future husband-to-be gradu-
ated in 1937 with a master's
degree, finally got a job in our
town as a news reporter mak-
ing $12 a week. We were mar-
ried in 1940 and as far as I was
concerned we were not out of
the Depression until 1960. I
still like to recall that when
my daughter, Jean, was born
in 1942, my hospital bill for.10
days was $40, including the
delivery room.
My friends and I were dis-
cussing whether a new de-
pression would bring us back
to core values and cohesive-
ness. As our country is today,
a Depression would be very
disastrous. Let's hope in oflr
lifetime we don't have to
return to a demoralizing de-
pression. Let's just count our
blessings, don't you think?

KIETH BACKIIAUS
GUEST COLUMNIST


Mary is in her 70s and her
ill husband admits to being
somewhat older. He is not
telling! They just left my office
picking up some nutritional
drink. Her husband needs
this to continue the fight with
his illness. Their finances can-
not afford the three or four
cans per day.
As we chatted, Mary pulled
out her homeowner's insur-
ance bill and asked for help.
The invoice was for more
than $1,900 even with a
$1,000 deductible. She said
she paid $750 for the same
coverage and deductible last
year. Mary's home is not large
and very modest. Nothing
fancy or expensive here. just a
basic two-bedroom home.
They worked here all their
employed lives to pay for that


home.
I have known this couple
for seven years. They are
amazing. Always positive.
Always with a smile-Their
combined Social Security is
very low. Yet, other than when
his medical bills drove them
under they have cared for
each other. We have helped
with food and an occasional
FPL bill but other than that
this couple continues to live
in their own home and con-
tribute to the community.
Now in their old age they
face choices'one should not
have to make. House insur-
ance vs. food; medicine vs.
homeowners insurance; stay
or leave?
Two other seniors called
the office today looking for
help to pay their homeowners
insurance. We coulid-offer
them no help either. Both are
widows.
In the Jewish and Christian
Bibles one of the top sins is
not caring for widows. It looks
to me like we have entered
into a "Perfect Storm" of sin.
Housing prices are so high
our seniors cannot afford to
move because of the huge
increase in their tax rate, and
the initial purchase price for
that smaller place leaves no-
thing to live on. .
Along with the increase in


homeowners insurance, gas-
oline prices have forced se-
niors to limit their driving. We
see that in the fewer volunteer
drivers willing to give our
most vulnerable seniors rides
to the doctor or grocery store.
Electricity has .gone up 19
percent.
What can we do to help?
One idea to lower insur-
ance cost and increase its
availability is to take an idea
from the farmers who could
not, buy insurance. They
helped themselves by creat-
ing their own insurance coop-,
eratives. This makes sense to'
me. If all Floridians formed
our own cooperative insur-
ance company, we would call
the shots. We would look at
long-term gains and not
short-term dividends. We
would store away money for
that big storm. Why should
our businesses and we be
slaves to Wall Street and off-
shore reinsurance compa-
nies? We would take care of
our Main Streets. The com-i
munity caring for itself is the
way to go. Let us .be responsi-P
ble for our widows.

Eat and sleep well in Portland, Maine


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

According to the Cool city
ranking, Portland, Maine, is a
Three-Day destination.
Totally unscientific, the
system is based on my per-
sonal boredom quotient, with
the best cities ranking as five-
day cities because I can
cheerfully remain there for
that many days and still make
plans to return again and
again. London, Sydney and
New York City are Five-Day
destinations according to the
Cool system. Los Angeles is at
best a four-day city, mostly
because it is so big that too
much time is spent negotiat-
ing freeways to get from Point
A to Point B. Perhaps I should
divide that metropolis into
smaller parts and rank those
but I never had enough inter-
est to do that. I would rather
spend the time to return to
Brussels, another three-day
city, or Rio, which is at least a
four-day city, or Savannah, a
really pretty two- or three-day
destination.
One-day places are just
that worthy of a look see
but probably not worthy of a
return trip. They shall remain
nameless. If I were to name
my one-day cities, critics of
my list would appear in
droves. And many one-day
cities are often found in close
proximity to three- and four-
day cities.
Three perfect days
in Portland
Portland, however, is a
three-day city of the first
order, one that whetted my
appetite for several return vis-
its-and for several reasons.
Within a short drive of Port-
land are several one-day and
even half-day destinations..
I was in Portland a few
weeks ago, following my
Maine schooner trip aboard
the Heritage, and found it a
great place to ease the return
from vacation to home.
My daughter, Heidi, and I
spent two nights at the
Eastland Park Hotel at 157
High St. and one night at The
Inn at Park Spring, which was
just a few blocks from there.
Although we had a rental car,
we found ourselves walking to
most places, including Port-
land's waterfront, a few blocks
away. Also within walking dis-
tance were the art district and
the Portland Museum of Art.
To learn more about The
Eastland Park, visit www.east-
landparkhotel.com.
The first night we dined at
the Eastland. I enjoyed a small
filet with a baked stuffed
potato and Heidi had a plate
filled with fried shrimp. We
had had lobster rolls for lunch
and planned on at least one
more lobster meal before
heading home. After all the
food we had eaten on the
schooner trip, we did not even
think of looking at the dessert
menu but instead chose to
walk around Portland for
awhile before sleeping in a
real bed for the first night in a
week. We actually did miss
our cosy bunks and the gentle
slapping of the waves against,
yet still managed to sleep
pretty late the next morning.
Doing a walk-about
We had a late breakfast
before heading out to see
more of Portland, cameras in
hand. Heidi likes to focus on
architectural details and.
found plenty to choose from
as we walked down Congress
Street, which slopes just
enough to remind us that we
would have an uphill climb
on our return. Even though it
was Sunday, many shops
were open, s well as 17
Dunkin Donut Shops in the
downtown area. We did not

check out any of the dough-
nut shops, instead focusing
on the art galleries as we
zigged and zagged a bit
toward Commercial Street
and the Wharf District. By 2
p.m., we were ready to eat
again and found ourselves at
Mim's Brasserie at 205 Com-
mercial, nearly opposite
Chandler's Wharf and many
of Portland's tour boats. On a
return trip to Portland, we
might take one of the boat
tours but since we had al-
ready spent a week sailing
around Penobscot Bay on a
much nicer boat, we concen-
trated on landside adven-.
rures. "
Mim's offered a Sunday
brunch selection that varied
from omelettes stuffed with
lobster, duck confit, sausage,
or several other items to sand-
wiches and salads. House
specialties included lobster
Benedict, which Heidi or-
dered and duck confit, com-
bining goat cheese and
scrambled eggs on a crois-
sant. I was not that hungry so
settled for a scrambled egg
and bacon with iced tea. To
learn more about Mim's, call
(207) 347-7478.
The Portland stroll
Afterward we strolled
along the wharf, checking out
the tour boats and several
condominium buildings on
some of the larger wharves.
Carnival and other cruise
lines depart from Portland
much of the year for multi-
day cruises. In addition to the
boat tours and cruises, there
are trolley tours. Ferry boats
take passengers to Bar harbor,
Yarmouth and Nova Scotia.
Downeast Duck Adventures is
a land/sea trip on an
amphibious conveyance sim-
ilar to the one used for the
Venice Duck Tours.
Railroad buffs would enjoy
spending time at the Maine
Narrow Gauge RR Co. and
Museum at 58 Fore St. There
are antique trains and a ride.
By 4:40 p.m. we noticed
that it was growing darker
than it does at that hour on
the west coast of Florida. Not
only were we father north and
the sun was moving south for
the winter, but we were at
nearly the eastern edge of the

eastern time zone. We started
the climb back to the hotel,
using different streets so we
could see some other sites. In
the process, we found a
memorial to film director
John Ford. There was a life-
size statue of Ford and
plaques commemorating the
Oscar-winning films he had
been associated with.
Uffa!
That night we had dinner
at Uffa! (Not a Norwegian
expletive), 190 State St., a
short walk from the hotel.
James Tranchmontagne is the
owner and his wife, Heidi., was
our server and hostess. IMy
daughter, Heidi, enjoyed her
seared duck breast with
blackberry-merlot reduction
($17). I ordered the marinated
lamb steak with garlic,
spinach and a cucumber-
yogurt compote ($18). Both
were served with smash pota-
toes. Neither of us left any-
thing on our plates. Had we
ordered a meal of similar
quality in New York City, I
can't imagine how much
more expensive it would have
been, but the presentation
and service would have been
no better. This is a restaurant
worthy of a mention in Zagat
one day. Their desserts-were
too tempting. We succumbed
to the house variation of
Death by Chocolate only
because our first choice a
light lemon cake-like confec-
tion was sold out that night.
To learn more about Uffa!,
visit uffarestaurant.com.
Bath, Maine
Our third day in Portland
we checked out of the hotel in
the morning, loading our gear
into the rental car, and head-
ed north to Bath, the home of
the Maine Maritime Museum.
Perched on a hilltop overlook-
ing the harbor, the museum
complex includes a maritime
history building, the Percy
and Treenall Shipyard where
the giant six-masted schoon-
er Wyoming was launched in
1909, paint and treenail shop,
mill and joiner shop, mould
loft and the opportunity to
tour the Sherman Zwicker


schooner and to take a sight-
.seeing cruise on an excursion
boat. Capt. Doug Lee of the
schooner Heritage is a trustee
of the museum. To learn more
about the schooner Heritage,
visit schoonerheritage.com.
Doing the stroll in Bath
It was a sunny autumn day,
perfect for strolling the
grounds of the museum. As
we had in Portland, we
skipped the opportunity for a
sightseeing 'cruise, instead
concentrating on walking
through the buildings associ-
ated with the ship building
that had occurred on site.
Most striking of' all' the ex-
hibits is on that-is only in its
earliest stages of construction
a skeleton of the schooner
Wyoming, the largest wooden
vessel ever constructed in the
United States. Standing amid-
ships between the skeletal
bow and stern, which are the
only parts completed at this
point, one can imagine the
size of the real ship. That the,
ship was built with hand labor
in the days before all the
cranes and heavy equipment
used to build ships today is
incredible to imagine. The
museum itself is a good one-
day destination and one wor- ,
thy of many return trips. To
learn more about the Maine
Maritime Museum, visit
mainemaritimemuseum.org.
Heidi and I spent several
pleasant hours there before
heading back to Portland with
a stop in Lewiston, the home
of Bates College. We had
already spend several hours at
Heidi's alma mater, Colby
College, in Waterville, on
another day.
Our land legs were coming
back thanks, to all the walking
and to two nights in a real
bed.
Arriving back in Portland
we parked on the side street
next to the Inn at Park Spring.
Owned by Nancy and John
Gonsalves who have lived all
over the world, primarily in
Asian countries, the historic
three-story B&B offers a
pleasant alternative to hotel
or motel accommodations,

other travelers.
The Venice connection
On the night of our stay,
there were guests from as far
away as California and two
ladies just off other schooner
trips. We enjoyed chatting
with them at breakfast the
next morning, as we dined on
poached apricots with yogurt'
before a main course quiche
Lorraine served with hot
croissants and fruit at the for-
mally set dining room table.
We met two of them the night
before as we headed out for
our last dinner in Portland --
a steak topped with chunks of
lobster and garlic butter. That
meal was the only one at a
restaurant we knew about
before alighting in Maine. The
owner's mother, Lou Ken-
nedy, is one of my co-workers
here at the Venice Gondolier
Sun. Just before I left on vaca-
tion she mentioned that her
son Kai Adams was the owner
of the Sebago Brewery and we
should stop in for dinner if we
could. We never did get to
Sebago but when we learned
there was a restaurant in
Portland we called to ask'


what was on the menu. When
we heard about the steak and
lobster entree at just $16.95,
our decision was made. The
combination was the perfect
way to bid adieu to Maine.
The Brewery is a typical brew
pub. We sat on high chairs at a
high table, enjoying the at-
mosphere as much as the
food. I am not a beer drinker
but Heidi enjoyed her Se-
bago-brewed beer with the
dinner. There was no room
for dessert.
By 8:30 p.m., we were back
at the Inn at Park Spring,
organizing our luggage for .the
flight home in the morning.
Our ,twin-bedded room
with private bath was on the
third floor and John helped
with our luggage. The view
from the third floor and spa-
cious quarters were well
worth the climb. Our rental
car spent the night safely in a
reserved parking space in a i
lot across the street and by
9:30 a.m. we had tummies
and car filled. It was time to
head to the Portland Airport
and finally, after 10 days at sea
and on land, to return to the
real world.

RICHARD HARRISON
GUEST C Linia11I I


My favorite uncle was
crouched in the backyard,
head raised, howling at the
moon. Wilfred was Mother's
younger brother and some-
times came to stay for a few
days to "dry out" after a par-
ticularly harrowing binge.
Reality breaks happened
occasionally, but this was the
worst ever. He was convinced
that he had become a were-
wolf a strange image for
one who was more teddy bear
than wolf.
For most of his adult life,
until he was forced to retire on
disability, he was a secretary
and stenographer for the fed-
eral government. Not just any
typist and steno, however. A
fewyears before, in command


of all his professional skills, he
had won every government
typing and shorthand compe-
tition to become the fastest
and most accurate in the
United States.
Tipsy or sober he was kind
and considerate, possessing
an impish sense of humor
and broad knowledge of ori-
ental art, arms and armor, lit-
erature and history. When he
visited, he always brought my
brother and me a gift,.usually
an intriguing and distinctive,
decorative miniature, which
once held some exotic wine
or liquor. In deference to our
ages and his thirst, these were
delivered empty.
When we were small, Dad
was home only twice a month
from his job as a traveling
government auditor. Uncle
Wilfred filled in, often taking
us for long walks in the
evening, always with an ice
cream treat at the end. Later,
when we moved to Baltimore,
he'd visit and we'd spend
happy hours prowling local
museums.
He was a bachelor and
lived at the Washington
Canoe Club on the Potomac

described how much the cat
enjoyed it. Mother was a little
upset when he fed Ex Lax to

harm and it, too, made a great

His favorite scripture was


the Apostle Paul's admonition
to Timothy to "take a little

Getting your pets ready for Halloween


STAFF REPORT

Halloween can be enjoyable for pets and
humans alike, according to a frightfully unsci-
enitific survey of 265 pet owners conducted by
the Pet Supplies
"Plus" chain in
August. Twenty- ', .
nine percent of -. .
dog and cat own- p '
ers will be dress- .. ,
ing up their pets -
in Halloween
costumes this
year and 21 per-
cent will be tak-
ing their pet trick
or treating.
These four-
footed trick-or-
treaters will be
easy to spot. Asi-
de from having
tails and whis- ,
kers, they'll prob-
ably be wearing a
pumpkin or devil
costume. Those
were the two
most popular
costume themes r.
among survey
respondents.
Other "popular
pet costumes
this Halloween
were witches, princesses, insects and angels.
According to the survey, one out of four (25
percent) of the survey respondents said they
are planning on matching their pet,s costume
with their own.
Pet Supplies "Plus" offers some Halloween
safety tips for pets:
Before purchasing a costume, make sure


that the costume you are buying does not
interfere with a pet's vision, and that it is easy
to put on and take off. Costumes should not
have foil, buttons or other objects that can be
swallowed by a dog or cat. Never cover a pet's


dog or cat to choke.
Keep pets away from the door. Between
loud children and doorbells ringing, even the
calmest pet may become aggressive. Dogs
may become aggressive toward a, trick or

nose or mouth with a costume. If the animal
looks uncomfortable, remove the costume.
Never force an animal to wear a costume.
Don't leave candy at their reach. Chocolate
is poisonous for pets; a stimulant called theo-
bromine can cause stomach problems, rapid
heartbeat, nervousness and even death.
Wrappers can be dangerous as well, causing a


treater invading his or her territory. Make sure
that your pet is wearing proper identification
at all times. Pets will have a good opportunity
to break away. With a tag, their chances of
being found and brought back home are high-
er. The best advice is to keep the pet away
from the door in a safe and familiar space of
the house.


Keep an eye on your cat; black cats are
especially at risk during this time of the year,
as they are often associated with witchcraft
and evil and fall victims of malicious treat-
ment.
Finally, re-
member not

you absolu-
tely must take

National Feral Cat Day


Adopt-a-pet


GRACE JOYCE
PET COLUMNIST

Oct. 16, 2006, marks the
annual National Feral Cat
Day. The day was founded by
the Alley Cat Allies organiza-
tion in 2001 for those who
advocate nonlethal feline
population control.
This year the event will
kick-off a year campaign for
awareness, education and
action to improve the lives of
stray and feral cats. The only
program that has proven
effective in reducing the pop-
ulation of feral cats is known
as TNR (Trap-Neuter-Re-
turn). More than 30 years of
documentation has proved
that trapping and killing feral
cats has no lasting effect on


reducing feral cat popula-
tions but TNR does. It is esti-

mated that more than 50,000
feral cats reside in Sarasota
County.
Feral cats are very different
from stray cats. A feral cat is
defined as either a cat who
has lived his whole life with
little or no human contact or
a stray cat who was lost or
abandoned and has lived
away from human contact
long enough to revert to a
wild state. A stray cat is a
domestic cat that was aban-
doned or strayed form home
and became lost. Because a
stray was once a companion
animal he can usually be re-
socialized and adopted.
The best way to tell
whether a cat is a feral is to
observe their appearance
and behavior. A stray is likely
to approach you, although
usually not close enough to
allow him to touch you. If you
put food down a stray cat will
likely start eating right away.
Feral cats are usually silent,
do not normally approach
humans, and are generally
seen from dusk to dawn
unless they are extraordinari-
ly hungry.
Feral cats generally cannot
be socialized and many do


not adjust to living indoors.
When traditional humane -
societies and animal control
agencies get involved in the
care of feral cats, the animals
are usually euthanized be-
cause it is very difficult to
place these animals in adop-
tive homes. Since feral cats
live in colonies and congre-
gare near food sources, the
colonies can successfully be
managed with the non-lethal
TNR method to allow these
animals to live out their lives
without reproducing.
Many nonprofit organiza-
tions, including St. Francis
Animal Rescue of Venice Inc.,
were formed to help with
feral cat issues. Most of these
organizations provide assis-
tance with managing feral cat
colonies, providing shelter
and care, and running adop-
tion centers where animals
that can be re-socialized find
loving, permanent homes.
Additional information about
feral cats can be found at all-
eycat.org or by calling St.
Francis Animal Rescue of
Venice at 492-6200.
Grace Joyce is St. Francis
Animal Rescue president and
co-founder St. Francis Animal
Rescue is a nonprofit, no-kill
facility.

Why should you train your puppy?


BY VIRGINIA CLEMANS, DVM
BEST FRIENDS ANIMAL SANCTUARY

You should train your
puppy because well-trained
dogs are happy dogs. They are
welcome almost anywhere
because they behave nicely
around people and other
dogs. They stay when told
and come when they are
called. They are fun to take for
a walk or a romp in the park.
They can be taken on trips
and family outings. They are
respected members of the
family in every sense of the
word.


Untrained dogs, on the
other hand, are unhappy
dogs. They don't have many
privileges. When company
comes, they have to be locked
away because they are too
unruly. When the family sits
down at the dinner table, they
beg for food. If allowed off
leash, they run away and
become lost or hurt. Nobody
wants to walk them on a leash
because they pull and jerk
and get tangled. And they stay
home a lot, because nobody
wants such a nuisance on a
family outing.
Remember that your pup-


py has a life expectancy of 10-
16 years. You can ensure that
these years are going to be
mutually rewarding by train-
ing your dog when she is
young. The intent of training
is to set guidelines for good
behavior. You can accomplish
this by teaching your puppy a
few basic commands. Take
"sit and stay," for example, a
command you can use when
you want your puppy to
remain quietly in one spot for
a short time. When the door-
bell rings, you can tell your
puppy to "sit and stay" while
you answer it, rather than


having her frantically charge
the door.
When you're training your
puppy, always use his name
and repeat commands fre-
quently, especially at first,
and give him a food treat
when he does well. As the
puppy improves, repeat the
commands less frequently
and at greater intervals. Even-
tually, food treats can start to
appear less predictably, but at
the outset, the puppy needs
that incentive to help him
maintain his focus.
The keys to successful
puppy training are consisten-


cy, patience and use of posi-
tive reinforcement. Everyone
in the household must be
consistent and work with the
puppy in the same manner.
Training should be fun for
everyone, including the
puppy. Children should be
monitored to ensure the
puppy's safety and to ensure
that they aren't teaching the
puppy the wrong behavior.
Always reward your dog for
good behavior; never punish
for bad behavior.
