Bypass




design




gets OK


BY STEVEN J. SMITH'
STAFF WRITER

Their aim was to pave the
way for a better Route 41
around Venice.
The Metropolitan Plan-
ning Organization's Technical
Advisory Committee unani-
mously endorsed a "preferred
alternative" Monday for the
design of the U.S. 41 Venice
Bypass.
The re-evaluation was
necessary due to ever-in-
creasing right-of-way costs
and the need to develop a
typical section and road
alignment that would reduce
them, according to its plan-
ners.
Chris Piazza, project man-
ager with the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation, re-
minded those at the meeting
that the proposal was based,
on input from various groups.
"We had a resolution from
the city of Venice recom-
mending the alternative that
we're presenting to you to-
day," Piazza said.
The original project study,
done in 1994, featured, as it
does now, design improve-
ments to U.S. 41 from Center
Road to a spot south of U.S.
41 Business North. The 2.5-
mile roadway is projected to
widen from four to six lanes
of traffic.
The design process is
due to be complete in 2008
and construction could be-
gin in 2010. The construction
phase and right-of-way ac-
quisition phase are not yet
funded.
"Of course, existing and
future traffic is driving the
project," said Jeff Trim, con-


sulting engineer from the
firm of Wade Trim. "We're
now at about 49,000 vehicles
per day, with projections of
,up to 54,000 in 2012. And by
2032, around 73,000 vehicles
per day will use this road."
Next: public input
. Trim said the original
study was divided into three
segments. The first two seg-
ments, running about 1.7
miles from Center Road to
Hatchett Creek, provided for
three lanes in both directions.
They called for a bike lane
and an eight-foot pathway,
separated by a 30-foot, raised
median. Those two segments
were combined in the re-
evaluation.-
"That's about a 140-foot
right of way through the
project -in this segment,"
Trim said.
The next segment in the
original plan was a .66-mile
stretch from Hatchett Creek
to Bird Bay Drive.
"Again, three lanes in each
direction with 4-foot bike
lanes, 8-foot pathways and
separated by a 30-foot medi-
an," Trim said, adding that
this offered a wider, 23-foot
border area with the capacity
for swales to aid in storm-
water drainage.
In the re-evaluation, the
140-foot right of way in
Segment One was reduced to
126 feet by reducing the
median width and border.
The sidewalks would be re-
duced as well, from 8 to 5
feet wide.
Segment Two also featur-
ed a smaller median, down to

Mother holds out





hope for missing son


Jason Galehouse disappeared in 2003 and
a man who allegedly participated
in his murder goes on trial
in another case next month.


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER

Pam Williams' 26-year old
son, Jason Galehouse, has
been missing for almost three
years. Everything about his
disappearance seems to indi-
cate he is dead. But Williams
has a mother's hope that she
will once again see her son
alive.
"A mother knows," she
said. "I can still feel his pres-
ence around me. When I toss
and turn at night, I hear him
trying to contact me."
"Jason was working at
Beneva Florist in Sarasota,"

Scott Paul Schweickert
went before U.S. Magistrate
Mark Pizzo Friday. After a
hearing, Pero ruled that he is
capable to stand trial in the
murder of Michael Wachholz.
According to Detective
Charles Maccussi, lead detec-
tive on the case, Schweickert's
attorney had argued his client
was incompetent to stand
trial. The attorney has conced-
ed that his client is now com-
petent.
Schweickert's trial is sched-
uled for Nov. 6 before U.S.
District Judge Steven
Merryday.
"Maybe now we will find
out the truth about my son,"
said Pam Williams, whose son,
Jason Galehouse, may also
have been one of
Schweickert's victims.


Williams said. "I re-
niember the day three
years ago when he
told me he was go-
ing to move out and
live with his friends
in Tampa."
Jason had only
been in Tampa four
months when Wil-
liams got a call from.
his roommate that her
son had been missing
for three days.
Williams immedi-
ately contacted the
police, At that point
her son Jason officially
became a missing
person.
Looking for her son
When efforts to find
her son by the Tampa
Police department
failed,. Williams, with
the help of her son's
friends, began her own
campaign to find him.
"We put out flyers,
started fundraising
campaigns and had a
booth outside of K-
mart," she said. "He PamI
had lots of friends try- |alive
ing to get information
from anyone who might have
seen him." ,
They retraced his steps
from the last place he had.
been seen, a downtown
Tampa nightclub.
"He called me that week
and asked to borrow
money," she said. I had just
gotten out of the hospital

Through fundraising ef-
forts Williams was able to hire
a private detective.
"The private detective
could not come up with
anything," said Williams.
"He (her son) had just van-


ished."
Psychics
Through the publicity,
several psychics contacted
her and asked to help,

VPD gets metal detector in security update


BYTOMMYMCINTYRE
STAFFWRITER

A metal detector has been
installed in the lobby of the
Venice police station.
You may enter the lobby
area for information without
going through the security
checkpoint, but that's as far
as you can go without pass-
ing through the metal de-
tector.
It is a reflection of the
times we live in where vio-
lent incidents can happen
anywhere even in a police
station.
"Since I got here (April 17),
I have been revising our
standard operating proce-
dure," VPD Chief Julie Wil-
liams said. "I looked at our
security system and said this
is inadequate, not how a
police department should
conduct itself."
Williams began beefing up
security procedures in June.
"We started asking visitors
for picture ID (driver license)
because it is so important to
know who our visitors are,"
Williams said. "They hand us
the ID, and we give them a
visitors' pass."

security measures for visitors. Williams said while the


sworn officers all wear guns,
civilians who work in the
department do rot.
"It is our job to protect
them, too," Williams said,
"and we would be at fault if
we did not take adequate
measures on their behalf."
Additionally, there are
signs stating "No unautho-
rized weapons beyond this
point ... leave your purses,
handbags and packages in
the car" and "Persons be-
yond this point are subject
to search."
Williams said that because
the South County Jail is lo-
cated in the back of the ,sta-
tion, VPD also has a duty to
help protect the jailers (un-
armed corrections officers).
She said many people
turn themselves in on war-
rants in the lobby. A correc-
tions officer comes up to get
them and walk them back to
the jail.
Even people with a valid
concealed weapons permit
are not allowed to take a
weapon beyond the security
checkpoint.

Interval ownership nightmare in Venice


From the Oct. 15, 1981, Gondolier Sun


BY RAY PORTER
STAFF WRITER


Mayor Frank Proctor
Tuesday led a group of citi-
zens asking the local legisla-
tive delegation to consider
changes in the state's statute
dealing with integral] owner-
ship operations.
Proctor appeared before
the group, composed of Rep.
Ted Ewing, Fred Burrall and
Tom Danson, and Sen.
Warren Henderson, and
explained that cities and
counties throughout the state
are faced with "a nightmare".


in trying to deal with interval
ownership condominiums
and their proliferation.
"This is our hot potato at
this time," said the mayor.
"The bottom line of the state
statute seems to be that if a
building's use is residential, it
can be converted into interval
ownership p."
Proctor noted that
Sarasota County has been try-
ing to formulate an ordinance
restricting interval owner-
ship, but has so far been
unsuccessful in two attempts.
The third draft is currently
being worked out by Chuck


Place, a county planner and
soon to be full-time Venice
city planner.
"We don't know if we can
amend the city zoning'codes
to handle the problem or
not," said Proctor.
Proctor told the delegation
the city would like to control
interval ownership and limit it
to specific areas by changing
the zoning code to create a spe-
cial category for interval o wn-
ership. But he wondered aloud
whether the action would be
legal when the state laws take
precedence in such makers.
"I think you should do it
and let them take you to
court." offered Burrall. "You


won't know whether it's legal
until somebody tells you."
Howard Stemm, newly
appointed member of the
Venice Planning Commission
after the death of William
Schmelzer, addressed the del-
egation and told of the pre-
sent situation facing the
Sandbar Motel in Venice.
The motel's owners are trying
to convert to interval owner-
ship, but have met stumbling
blocks in the planning com-
mission and the city council.
The groups are unsure how to
act, with possible ordinances
pending in the city and the
county which \wotdd limit
interval ownership.

Picerne's Brookside Village is VHA's future


Grove Terrace will soon be no more. In its place

will be what is now being called Brookside

Village.


BY MARY APOSTOLU
STAFF WRITER

Venice Housing Authority
Chairman Sam Prost and
Chip Cornell of Picerne
Development gave a presen-
tation Tuesday to update
Venice City Council regarding
the progress on the demoli-
tion and ultimate rebuild of
what is to be Brookside
Village.
Cornell described the
process involved in relocating
the existing tenants. All resi-
dents will receive Section 8
housing vouchers. These
vouchers are good wherever
the tenant moves to. Should
the tenant choose to remain
off property indefinitely, he or
she would still receive the
funding. Current tenants will
have first-return rights at the
new property.
Picerne Development,
located in Altamonte
Springs, specializes in hous-
ing authority development.
It is in the process of hiring a
relocation company that
will help residents coordi-
nate their moves, and is
already planning group and,


individual counseling ses-
sions. There is also reloca-
tion funding included in the
equation.
Currently, there are 50
units on the property. The
plan is to build three, three-
story buildings for a total of
72 units, and a 2,700-square-
foot clubhouse. There have
been discussions with the city
planners office, and:having
received the guidelines, these
buildings will support the
Venetian theme.
Council members had
some concerns, however.
: "There is no green space,
no imagination I am not
impressed with this plan at
all," said council member
John Moore.
Council member John
Simmonds offered the sug-
gestion of going up a floor
and having parking under-
neath, and also remarked on
the lack of green space.
"It is too cost prohibitive to
go up one floor it would
require us to put in elevators,"';
said Cornell.
-One parcel on the south
side of the creek will remain
green.


GRAPHIC COURTESY OF VHA

A conceptual drawing of Brookside Village. Grove Street,
located at the bottom left of the graphic, is the proposed
location for Phase II senior housing.


Cornell explained Picerne's
decision to do Phase I first,
then, having gained the trust
of the community, move on
to Phase II, an L-shape build-
ing that would be designated
for people 55 and older, with
amenities included in the
building.
"I'm not concerned about
density as much as I'm coni-


cerned about quality," said
Venice resident Don O'Con-
nell. "There are no safe-
guards, no stormwater; I urge
them to get a local developer
involved."

Made in the shade
The council meeting broke
for an hour, to all the mem-
bers to meet with their out-


side attorney on the status of
City of Venice vs. Venice Pier
Group Inc. (Sharky's). Such
private meetings are permit-
ted under Florida's Sunshine
Law.


In other business
Also on Tuesday council:
Presented a proclama-
tion to Don Hay, president of
Venice Area Beautification
Inc., and Ed Wolfenbarger,
Shamrock Park naturalist,
designating October as
Florida Greenways and Trail

Presented a proclama-
tion to Fire Chief Mike
Johnson designating October

vice award to Ron Carter,

Reappointed John Holic

Trustees, beginning )ct. 1,

meeting.

sion fund.

still alive, just misplaced. The
woman said he was deep in
the woods where no one
would find him. She did not
see a grave.
The second said he was
gone and "the name Scott
keeps coming up." She asked
if Williams knew any of his
friends named Scott.
"I told her I didn't know
anyone named Scott and at
the time did not realize the
importance of the name,"
Williams said.
Linked to murders
Shortly after contacting
the last psychic, Williams
learned from the police that
Scott Paul Schweickert re-
portedly admitted helping
kill Jason Galehouse and
another young man, Michael
Wachholz.
Galehouse's disappear-
ance was now officially link-
ed to- the murders of young
gay men in Tampa.
Based on the court docu-
ments, Schweickert worked
closely with Steve Lorenzo
to plan and carry out the
murders of the two Tampa
men.
Galehouse was one of
those men. Schweickert said
he picked up Galehouse at a
Tampa bar and brought him
back to Lorenzo's house.
Schweickert admitted he
saw Galehouse dead and re-
ported he helped Lorenzo
wrap the body in a tarp.
No body found
Wachholz's body was
found in a bed sheet in the
back of a Jeep Cherokee
found by the police. Gale-
house is still unaccounted
for.
"They never found my
son's body," Williams said.
His DNA was found on a
mask that reportedly was
used to drug him. DNA also
was found in Steve Lorenzo's
home.
"At this point it is still
an open investigation," said
Charles Maccussi of Tampa,
lead detective on the case.
Because her son's body
has never been found, Wil-
liams still holds out hope
that he is alive.
"I don't believe he is dead,
I have a mother's inner feel-
ing about it;" she said.
Williams thinks Jason is a
victim of post traumatic
stress syndrome and has lost
his memory. She believes he
will someday try to contact
her.
"I thought he called once,"
Williams said. "I had a phone
call where someone stayed
on the phone for a very long
time. I said 'Jason, if it is
you and. you can't talk, just
breathe in the phone.' I know
it seems crazy to get excited
about a caller breathing into
the phone, but I am a moth-
er and you have to have
hope."
She gets phone calls like
this often and never disre-
gards them.
Williams keeps busy by
working as a stylist at Devine
Designs Studio, U.S. 41,
Venice.
"I will never give up hope
until my son is found," she
said.

Sarasota County results in
the primary election for the

Nancy Detert received the
most votes, with Vern Bu-

Hudson third.

Housing trust
homebuyer orientations
Community Housing Trust
has begun holding orienta-
tions for first time home-
buyers.
Homebuyer orientations
are a one-hour introduction
that provides a road map for
people interested in buying
a home. At the end of the
orientation, participants can
undergo a homebuyer readi-
ness assessment so they


know how prepared they are
to buy a house, what price of
a home they qualify for and
what their next step is in the
process.
Based on the assessment,
people will be linked with an
array of services including
homebuyer education, credit
counseling and affordable
loan products.
The orientations will be
held in Sarasota, Venice and
North Port. Orientations in
Sarasota will be held on the
second and fourth Wednes-
day of every month at 6 p.m.
at the CHT office, which is
located at 3430 Magic Oak
Lane (the 4600 block of
Fruitville Rd.) in Sarasota.
Orientations in Venice will
be held Oct. 19 and Nov. 16
at the Venice Area Chamber
of Commerce, 597 South
Tamiami Trail, at 5 p.m.
For a complete schedule,
additional information and
registration, call 379-5252.

Facilitator will take on annexation plan


Officials from North Port, Venice and
Sarasota County met on neutral ground
Oct. 4 to try to negotiate new annexation
rules. The session, held in a park building
west of the Sarasota city limits, lasted four
hours.
The county is threatening to try to gain
control over annexations and annexed but
undeveloped land through a county charter
vote in the spring. This ploy has forced offi-
cials in both cities to put all annexations on
hold and focus on the county's demands,
since the county position is backed by a
Seminole County court ruling.
The county's effort has been prompted, in
part, by a group of citizens with a petition
who appear to want to stop most, if not all,
future residential growth.
County Commissioner Jon Thaxton has
long wanted to slow down growth and to pre-
serve farm land and land suitable for wildlife.


It took most of Wednesday's four-hour
session to schedule a series of negotiating
sessions in the next 90 days.
North Port and Venice learned that the
county not only wants to be deeply involved
in all future'annexation planning, it wants "a
seat at the table" whenever city officials meet
to discuss land that has already been
annexed but remains undeveloped.
That apparently would include the
sprawling Isles of Athena, which has long
been a hot button issue for Thaxton and
other county commissioners.,
North Port Manager Steve Crowell, who
was interviewed following the 8 a.m.-noon
session, described it as "cordial."
But the four-member North Port delegation
and Marty Black, Venice manager, suggested
during the discussion that the county's
demands and motivation remain unclear.
Larry Arnold, who has served as the coun-


ty's "go-to" guy for complicated issues, is one
of the two county officials leading its seven-
member negotiating team. He told the Sun
they want to negotiate a "process."
He added that since the county and the
two cities serve the same group of taxpayers,
the county wants a role in all projects that
will result in spending tax dollars.
"We want to see that families get the best
product and services for their money,"
Arnold said. "Residents don't care a lot about
the geographic area or boundaries."
The meeting was run by Linda Loomis
Shelley, an experienced facilitator from the
Tallahassee law firm of Fowler White Boggs
Banker. Her fee will be paid by the two cities
and the county.
A calm, careful, very methodical person,
Shelley pointed out she was the facilitator,
not an arbitrator. But Shelley is fully aware of
the county's early January "drop dead" dead-


line. She indicated she feels the conflict can
be resolved.
Shelley spent the rest of the week visiting
.North Port and Venice, getting a "boots on-
the-ground" grasp of the geography being
discussed. She also listened to the cities'
positions and concerns.
Shelley immediately began to write the
first draft of the agreement. A draft is already
circulating and will be discussed in
November by the elected officials of the three
bodies.
It is difficult not to like and respect Shelley.
She ran the first session smoothly, as if she
were a veteran teacher overseeing a class in a
rural, one-room schoolhouse.
We left the meeting feeling Shelley proba-
bly has the skill to resolve the dispute before
the deadline. But first she must convince
North Port and Venice officials they will end
up with a solution that is fair,

RAY STONER
GUEST COLUMNIST

So Mark Foley has re-
signed. Now, what does this
mean to those he represent-
ed?
Well, for openers we are
getting a new voice in the
House of Representatives. A
new broom is supposed to
sweep clean and I can think of
no better place to, start than
here in South Sarasota
County. Playground of the
rich and famous, our home
has always been a place of
intrigue and mystery.
Boca Grande and Char-
lotte Harbor were once home
waters for Jose Gaspar's pirate
fleet. Today things haven't
changed much.
The Mark Foley scandal is
just another sign of far more
serious problems.
Florida is a state populated
by migrants. Be they the land-
buying snowbirds or our
southern illegal visitors who
build their houses, the popu-
lation is constantly being
rolled over. From those who
come and die to those we are
now deporting, the market is
always changing.
Consequently representa-
tion becomes a matter of who
attracts the most votes from
the uneducated, uninformed
electorate. Since most vested
interests and their employees
vote, this is who our represen-
tatives represent- the vested
interests. The rest of us don't
count.
Elected government is
supposed to address the
problems and needs of the
people. So what do we get?
Take a ride to 1660 Ringling
Boulevard and look. -
Every day there are meet-
ings, hundreds of meetings,
all attended by people who
want something. In reality,
they seek an exemption of
some type. Most of the time
these are granted by those not
knowing what they are grant-
ing.
Should a new broom
appear on the scene, it
wouldn't know where to start.
Reality is what is real. What
we are creating is an illusion.
Should we stop spraying
for mosquitoes, South Florida
would be uninhabitable in 10
years. The same applies were
the central power system to
collapse. Charley taught us
that.


new broom

These are the types of
issues a new broom needs to
address. This is what plan-
ning is supposed to be, not
vested interests sitting
around a table parceling up
the swamp under the direc-
tion of "officialdumb."
With regulators like the
Corps of Engineers, Swiftmud
and DEP now acknowledging
they are clueless, should not
our elected officials start exer-
cising common sense and
control?
First things first. If your
water is contaminated, Social
Security is the least of your
problems.
., With. red-tide destroying
our tourist and fishing indus-
tries, we now discover the
solution may be bleach.
Makes one wonder about cit-
rus canker. Over and over the
worker bees find their taxpay-
er dollars spent for studies
and research. Instead of opin-
ions and theories, we need
facts. Then based on these
facts, we take action. The
same applies to Lake
Okeechobee.
On all levels our way of life
is coming unglued. From the
rank-and-file's inability to
choose leaders the inabili-
ties of the leaders they
choose, the whole system is
falling apart.
Fortunately, there is a solu-
tion. Unfortunately, no one
wants to hear it. The solution
is called common sense.
Of late the cities of North
Port and Venice have found
themselves in a jurisdictional
dispute. The county had
threatened to submit the
matter of future growth to the
voters.
What happened? 'They
postponed any action for six
months. Instead of common
sense, as per usual, we get
politics. The problems are
NOW. If something is not
done NOW, six months hence
-matters will only be worse.
Are any of you people awake?
So here we are, coming up
on elections. With registered
voter interest running at 25
percent, it is hard to under-
stand how this constitutes a
majority of anything.
Now remember, registered
voters only make up a very
small percentage of the total
population. This means those
who call themselves our

Editor:
The downtown fountain area for the youth is such a great
addition to Venice. I am so thankful that the city of Venice has
provided something for the youth so widely used.
When I take my two children, not only am I seeing and
meeting local families, but I am meeting so many people visit-
ing their parents or grandparents in town. This is proving to be
great for all generations ofVenice to enjoy, and I know the busi-
nesses on the island are also benefiting. Thank you, thank you,
thankyou.
As we now see the benefit of the fountains, perhaps a non-
passive park that would offer amenities for music, volleyball,
etc. would be a great addition to Venice. To my knowledge there
is a large portion of bond money allocated for such a park at
the Tramonto Vista Park site on the island, the former water
treatment facility.
By my count, 13 schools, one college and countless pre-
school facilities equals a lot of youth in our town. Let's make a
place for the youth and their families to enjoy.
It would be nice to see additional areas in Venice created for
the youth as well as for all of the other generations and tourists
in our town.

One six-year term
and out
Editor:
We the people are swirling
amid pesky elections and,
frankly, I've had enough rap.
To borrow from the
Constitution of the Confed-
erate States of
America: Article II. Section I:
"The executive power shall.
be vested in a President of the
Confederate States of Ame-
rica. He and the Vice
President shall hold their


offices for the term of six
years; but the President shall
not be reeligible...."
Change "Confederate" to
"United" and allow for
ladies in high officess, and
gay marriage and stem cells
will resolve of their own
fruition.
Imagine a president wast-
ing no time squirming and
spending for a second term.
There would be ample time
for takin' care o' bidness. The
bureaucrats would adapt
quickly or perish.
An enema for impacted
politicians in Washington,
D.C., would please many citi-
zens who are fed up and will-
ing to administer one.
Thomas Jefferson thought a
revolution every 20 years or
so was vital to our survival.
Some say the Constitution
lives and breathes. If so, bring
on the oxygen.
God knows that we the
people could benefit from
the trickle down of the
aforementioned constitu-
tional amendment. After all,
"The Man" just took Pluto
away from us and that was
my second favorite planet -
yet the universe remains in
balance.
A single six-year term of
office seems to be the tastiest
stop along the smorgasbord
of Constitution-altering mad-
ness because many lobbyists
would be forced to go home
without having their pockets
turned inside out or their bel-
lies filled.

Landings needs a house
cleaning

Editor:
Dr. Gary Norris' resigna-
tion should be accepted. In
truth, it should be expedited
by appointment of a new
superintendent from the
ranks while Norris remains as
an advisor.
Additionally, the resigna-
tions of sitting members of
the school board and seve-
ral administrators at the
Landings should be request-
ed.
Taxpayers were deliberate-
ly and knowingly misled on
two counts over the last sev-
eral years to promote the sur-
tax extension:
1. There were never demo-
graphic data or previous his-
tory to support projections in
enrollment increases of 1,500
new students a year. That has
now been admitted.
2. There were no data to
support a drop out rate of 2.9
percent or a graduation rate
of 82 percent as the school
board has advertised. Enrol-
lments of ninth graders com-
pared to enrollments in the
10th grade the next year have
shown the loss of 400 to 500
enrollees a year since Norris
arrived in 2004.
That some families with
children moved from the dis-
trict is irrelevant; more moved
into the district sinca 2004.
Top school administrators
and the Citizens for Better
Schools have been in denial.

LET 'EM HAVE IT! SHOULD THERE BE MORE PUBLIC ART IN DOWNTOWN VENICE?


DEREK DUNN RANKIN
GUEST COLUMNIST


Here yesterday,

today and

tomorrow

Just who is the rumored
buyer of your local newspa-
per? Over the years specula-
tion comes and goes, some-
times even being very specific
as to the buyer. It may even be
on the mind of some of the
100-plus stockholders of Sun
Coast Media Group who held
their annual meeting in
Venice recently.
It is 29 years since we start-
ed with nine employees at the
Sun Coast Times, which by
June 1977 was merged with
theVenice Gondolier. By 1979,
we were publishing weeklies
in Englewood, North Port and
Charlotte followed by the
weekly DeSoto Sun.
By 1986 the Charlotte Sun
was a daily and a year later
acquired the 100-year-old
Punta Gorda Herald.
At various times during our
growth, three larger newspa-
per companies, Lindsey-
Schaub Newspapers, the
Providence Journal Company
and Media General have been
significant stockholders and
contributed their experience
and finances in helping us
grow. Over time we bought
back the stock of those
investors.
Today the majority of the
stock is owned by me and my
family. A substantial number
of shares are owned by com-
pany employees and the
experienced newsmen who
are our 6utride diretors. .'
It is an interesting tinme iri
our business to take a look at
the newspaper publishing
side of our local efforts.
BeforeWorldWar II, sizable
communities had a number
of local family-owned busi-
nesses that included a down-
town department store, the
local hardware store, a drive-
in theater, a local radio station
and newspaper, the Coca

Cola bottling plant, a locally
owned car dealer, a gas sta-
tion and a repair shop. The
savings and loan and the
bank were locally owned and
directed. They supported the
United Way, the high school
band and football team and
built the local hospital.
In the newspaper business,
the trend to group ownership
whose stock is held by big
investors and traded daily has
put an emphasis on immedi-
ate profits to the detriment of
the communities they serve
and the long-term health of
the business. Across the
country, newspapers are los-
ing circulation year after year.
The blame is put on the
Internet.
In order to keep up profits,
which are quite handsome,
the publicly owned dailies are
cutting back on the number
of reporters and other
employees; they raise adver-
tising rates even as they lose
circulation. Their products
lose value to both readers and
advertisers.
They spin themselves into
a repeat of the cycle even as in
the short term they keep prof-
its high.
Our strategy at this family-
employee-owned business is
the opposite of the immedi-
ate gratification demanded of
the public companies. Our
profits are healthy enough to
keep reinvesting in improve-
ment and growth even if they
are half that of public compa-
nies. Instead of fewer each
year, more people are
employed in providing better
value to readers and advertis-
ers. We want to create the best
value that can be sustained
over time.
We are better than we were
10, five or one year ago. We
still have room for significant
improvement. We intend to
continuously improve.
Reinvestment pays its own
growth dividends. Since join-
ing the newspaper industry's
annual audit program 20
years ago, we have had a cir-
culation gain every single
year. No publicly owned pub=
fisher m watched' ur readtr''
acceptance over those two
decades.
We think it is because we
'operate the newspaper as
belonging to our readers,
advertisers, employees and
the community of folks dedi-
cated to public and voluntary
service along with the stock-
holders of record.
Don't believe the rumors.

elected representatives repre-
sent only a small minority of
the total population, the vest-
ed interests. They and their
employees are the only ones
that vote. The rest of the pop-
ulation is so disenchanted
with the system they can't be
bothered.
Disenchanted they should
be. From the Abramoff
bribery scandal in Wash-
ington to Mark Foley's prob-
lem locally, the entire system
needs to be put up for review.
So what are we getting?
Should you be a voter,
remember if you wish to vote
for Mark Foley's replacement
Joe Negron, you need to vote
for Mark Foley. Should you get
past this hurdle, there is then
the matter of. whether your
vote will be counted.
All the officials assure us
this is not a problem. Then
there is the reality of the last
two elections.
New brooms are hard to
come by. Let's hope this new
crew of representatives poss-
es some integrity, common
sense and morals.
Our neighbor Mark Foley,
role model of role models, at
the peak of government, was
propositioning idealistic Con-

America's youth. We should
all be hanging our heads in

What's the limitation of statues?


Art, please. I'd like to see
the foundation or the city of
Venice or some other group
work on bringing some art to
downtown Venice. I think the
landscaped area in front of
the hospital would be a great
place for a sculpture; also,
some wild animal figurines
down by the Circus Bridge to
make that bridge an actual
circus bridge. And the
Hatchett Creek Bridge could
use some interesting artwork
up there because right now,
it's just an expanse of con-
crete and it looks terrible. It's

nity.
Foreign mail. I'm reading
the article about the 24-hour,
round-the-clock post office. If
this reporting is accurate,
these two gentlemen who are
going to be operating this U.S.
postal service came from
Pakistan several years ago.
Several years ago we started
the war on terror. How can
they have a U.S. postal facili-
ty? Remember all the prob-
lems we had with all that dust
in one of the envelopes that
contaminated one of the fed-
eral buildings? How can we
have someone run one of our
post offices who has only
been in our country for sever-
al years? He doesn't say
whether they're citizens. This
makes me really uncomfort-
able, especially since we had
Mohamed Atta learning to fly
here in town. Venice is obvi-
ously on the Arabs' map.
What can you do? How can
you check these guys out?
Can this be allowed?
Editor's note: Atta was a
Saudi Arabian, and Pakistan is not
an Arab country.
Slap on the wrist. Seems
like the penalties for the
director of Van Wezel are a


joke. He's laughing all the way
to the bank. Two weeks with-
out pay. Wow. He should have
been fired, period or at
least sent to Siberia to start a
performing arts hall. Running
a consulting business using
city employees and city
equipment and all the time
involved that was being paid
for by the taxpayers. They
don't tolerate this type of
behavior at Longboat Key
City Hall. These people
should be fired with no
chance of ever being em-
ployed at the expense of tax-
payers anywhere. The trust is
gone for good, no matter how
clever or smart the individu-
als involved may think they
are. Shame on them and
shame on the system that
allows them to continue. How
can anyone involved in this
type of crime show their
faces? So far this type of
behavior has surfaced for
planners, information system
directors, building zoning
directors and now perform-
ing arts directors. Where is it
going to end? All this has been
taking place while being paid
for by you, the taxpayers. Talk
about arrogant and arrogant
and arrogant.
Good Samaritans. While
riding my bicycle, I drove into
a water-filled pothole on the
corner of Cambridge Drive
and Shamrock Boulevard and
busted up myself and my
bicycle. I was amazed how
many drivers stopped and
offered their assistance. To all
of them, a big thank you. To
the nice couple and their little
girl who fished me and my
bicycle out of the water pud-
dle and drove me home on
Friday evening, a big hug and

Panel to ponder tax


changes over next year


BY JOHN HAUGHEY
STAFF WRITER

Many eyes and ears are on
the committee created by
Gov. Jeb Bush in June to study
ways to reform the state's
property tax system.
The Property Tax Reform
Committee is reviewing
potential revisions that could
include retooling Homestead
and Save Our Home exemp-
tions, extending tax shelters
to commercial landowners,
and limiting local govern-
ment revenues and expendi-
tures.
The 15-member panel has
convened twice and will meet
next on Oct. 17 in Miami. It
will file a report to Gov. Bush
by mid-December and final
recommendations by Dec-
ember 2007.
That may be a long time to
wait, for those saddled with
unsheltered tax levies after
successive years of double-
digit hikes in valuation, but
prospects for significant
changes are good, Charlotte
County Property Appraiser
Frank Desguin said.
"It kind of came to a head
all over the state this year," he
said. "Legislators are starting
to hear an awful lot from their
constituents. The year before,
I didn't hear that kind of talk."
Palm Beach County
Property Appraiser Gary Nik-
olits, who succeeded Desguin
as Florida Association of
PropertyAppraisers president
this week, said the span
between the committee's first
and final reports Dec-
ember 2007 to December
2008 will feature plenty of
debate.
"I think it is going to be a
very interesting year," he said.
Unintended -'
consequences
Nikolits said FAPA will for-
ward suggestions to the com-
mittee, including a "Save Our
Businesses" proposal to
extend exemptions similar to
those afforded state residents'
primary homes to some busi-
nesses.
Nikolits, along with Lee
County Property Appraiser
Ken Wilkinson and Brevard
County Property Appraiser
Jim Ford, launched a
statewide petition drive last
week to help homeowners
keep homestead exemptions
if they move.
Wilkinson, who spear-
headed the seminal 1992 Save
Our Homes campaign, hopes
the panel endorses the initia-
tive to make it easier to get on
the ballot.
"I wanted to be on the
committee but they wouldn't
let me," he chuckled, before
noting three portability pro-
ponents Sen. Burt








Looking for a new job,


Saunders, R-Naples; Orange
County Property Appraiser
Bill Donegan; Hillsborough
County Property Appraiser
Robert Turner are on the
committee.
The panel has been col-
lecting ideas from the public
since August. There are good
ideas surfacing, Nikolits said,
such as creating an index
tying assessments and mill-
age to "some factor in the
market."
While these are specifics,
much of the debate will focus
. on the general foundation of
the state's tax system.
DeBoer said review is war-
ranted.
"The first thing you need to
do is look at Save Our Homes
and how unintended conse-
quences have created a great
inequity," he said. "It was
intended to protect people
during normal inflationary
periods. No one thought
about the hyper-inflation we
just went through."
The system has fostered
two classes of property tax-
payers those who are
shielded and those who pay
full freight.
"Go back to the beginning
of these things," DeBoer said.
'"All property needs to be
appraised at 100 percent.
Then you add exemptions for
specific categories of people
who need protection."
Full freight
State Rep. Michael Grant,
R-Port Charlotte, who owns a
business and other properties
without exemptions, is a-
mong those in the "paying full
freight" category.
"As a commercial property
owner, and as someone who
owns some additional prop-
erty, like others in a similar
pbsii'Ori.' I ai: finding'it' is
very difficult," he said. "At the
same time, I also benefit by
having exemptions on my
home."
Grant said it will take work,
to find a balance between
preserving Save Our Homes
exemptions and providing
some relief for owners of non-
qualifying properties, but it
must be done soon.
"There has just got to be a
better way for doing it other
than people being forced to


TAX REFORM IDEAS
* Cap nonhomestead property
tax increases; make it retroac-
tive four years.
* Use five-year average to
determine market value.
* Tax in progressive values,
$100,000 blocks, on improved
land. *
* Tax at 75 percent of assessed
value with exemptions only
for elderly, disabled, veteran,
widowed.
* Only do appraisals every
three years.
* Keep taxable values constant
until sold.
* Implement a state income
tax
* Abolish homestead exemp-
tions; allow exemptions in
$500 increments tied to
income thresholds.
* Establish higher tax for those
who sell land less than two
years after it is purchased.
* A 1-percent tax on assessed
value with annual increases
capped at 2-3 percent.
* Cut taxes on rental proper-
ties, small businesses by 25
percent; offer tax credits.
These are among ideas
submitted by the public to
the statewide Property Tax
Reform Committee. The 15-
member panel will meet three
more times before filing an
initial report on Dec. 15.

pay these taxes," he said.
Florida League of Cities
Assistant Director of Leg-
islative Affairs John W. Smith
said Save Our Homes has also
had a political fallout liter-
ally.
" 'State resid'enrs khow taxes
ion their home will never
increase by more than 3 per-
cent of assessed value a year,
so fewer get involved in local
government, he said.
"They don't have any real
reason to participate," Smith
said. "You are giving incen-
tives not to pay attention."

School board sweetens


the pot with teachers


Management increases its offer to an 8-percent


package for teachers.

BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

It was the school district's
turn last week to make an
offer to the Sarasota
Classified/Teachers Assoc-
iation.
The parties are entering
the final push in salary and
benefits negotiations.
On Wednesday school dis-
trict officials said they were
seeking a salary package
totaling 8 percent over last
year's pay for teachers. The
average teacher salary in
Sarasota County public
schools is more than $45,000.
Scott Lempe, human
resources director and associ-
ate superintendent for the
Sarasota County School
District, said the district is
sticking to its offer of a 5.25-
percent across-the-board
increase $2,363 for a
teacher making the average
salary. It's also sticking to an
automatic 1.5-percent step
increase on the salary sched-
ule another $675 for the
average teacher.
It was, however, willing to
increase teacher incentive
pay from 2 percent to 3.25
percent another $1,463 for
the average teacher. .Only
teachers who take an addi-
tional 30 hours of training or
collaborative planning are eli-
gible for the pay.
Under this proposal, the
total dollar value of the raises
for the average teacher would


equal $4,501.
That doesn't include anot-
her $2.77 million countywide
in "A' school reward monies
(Venice High teachers, for
example, will earn an addi-
tional $1,000) being divvied
up this year; school stipends
for coaches; and additional
pay for department heads.
Together, the three provi-
sions total a potential 8 percent
increase in pay. It's not as much
as last year's package of more
than 11 percent that was tied to
a longer work day, but better
than previous years.
The offer is contingent
upon a number of provisions
that have yet to be accepted
by both parties.
SC/TA listened to the
offers, but did not counterof-
fer. It is likely to do so today
(Wednesday) when bargain-
ing resumes.
SC/TA's last offer was an 8.5
percent package, and 1.5 per-
cent step increase.

A breather
Two weeks ago SC/TA
counteroffered to a proposal
by the school district
designed to gain parity in pay
raises among school staff.
Union negotiators wanted a
7-percent across-the-board
raise in the salary schedule
for both classified employees
and teachers.
At that time the district was
offering a 4.25-percent
across-the-board raise for


classified staff and a 1.5-per-
cent step increase. Each year
an employee is automatically
moved up a step on the salary
schedule.
Negotiators gingerly
brought up the issue, once
again, of forced transfers.
Two weeks ago management
offered a proposal that would
give the superintendent the
right to move up to 62 teach-
ers each year at will.
Union officials blew up
over the proposal, and both
parties agreed to take a
breather.
In a message to members,
SC/TA Executive Director
Barry Dubin said the breather
was necessary "to reconsider
if it is worth pursuing with all
the accompanying bad feel-
ings and mistrust a proposal
like that can spawn."
School attorney Art Hardy
didn't offer a new proposal on
paper, but said the district is
still looking for "limited abili-
ty to move some people
around."
"The state may require that
in statute next year," he said,
referring to the No Child Left
Behind Act. NCLB requires
states to come up with a plan
to address schools that per-
sistently don't make
Adequate Yearly Progress.
Florida is already consider-
ing how to require schools to
remove a certain percentage
of staff and administrators as
one option to fix faltering
schools.

Indians beat Manatee
for girls district title.

BY JOHN FINERAN
STAFFWRITER

Venice and Manatee have
battled all season for girls
golf supremacy, so it's only
natural their rivalry will con-
tinue next week in the Class
2A-Region 5 tournament at
the Manatee County Golf
Course.
The two schools each own
a victory over the other on
the other's golf course -
Venice won by 24 strokes at
Manatee County and Mana-
tee won by three at Mission
Valley.
Monday, Round 3 went to
the Lady Indians, who won
the Class 2A-District 14 tour-
nament at host Charlotte's
Deep Creek Golf Course by
22 strokes over the Lady
Hurricanes. Both schools and
third-place Lakewood Ranch,
*which totaled 379, advance
to the regional.
Sophomores Casey Ken-
nedy and Crystal Smith, who
have battled for the No. 1 spot
on the Venice team all sea-
son, led the way Monday for
coach Larry Sandburg. Ken-
nedy had a 4-over 74, two
strokes better than Smith.
But they both trailed
medalist .Maria Ronderos of
Manatee, who finished with
a 2-over 72.


Casey Kennedy


Ronderos and Kennedy,
probably the two longest hit-
ters in the area, struggled
with their putters.
"I couldn't putt today," said
Ronderos, who needed 35
putts to complete her round.
"I couldn't get the speed
down," lamented Kennedy.
Smith found the course
setup at Deep Creek tough.
"I thought it was difficult,"
she said. "If you don't hit it
straight, you're in trouble.
Plus, the greens were faster
than I thought they'd be."
Nevertheless, Sandburg
and the Lady Indians gladly
will take the trophy.
"It's exciting to win the
district," he said. "That's just
the first part of our goal."-
Venice is hoping to im-
prove on its seventh-place
showing at last year's Class
2A state tournament. But
first the Indians must survive
the Class 2A-Region 5 tourn-


ament Monday at Manatee
County, where the winning
and runner-up teams ad-
vance to the state finals.

With backs to wall, Indians to let it all hang out


J I.P.UELEWIS. .. ...... ........
SPORTS EDITOR

A -cornered, wounded ani-
mal can be very dangerous.
Venice High, 0-6, will enter
Friday night's game at Port
Charlotte with that mentality.
The Indians backs are up
against the wall in a must-
win situation. It's do or die,
make or break, time to let it
all hang out and pull out all
the stops.
You know what we mean.
Venice, 0-2 in District 11
play, must win its final two
games to have a shot at
squeezing into the playoffs.
Even with that, the Indians
will need some help.
There is a flicker of hope.
Port Charlotte (2-4) is the
first opponent with a losing
record. All seven to date have
been over or at least at the .500.
mark.
Venice also has a good
recent history against the
Pirates. You have to go back
to the '90s when Port last de-
feated the Indians.
A win could give Venice
momentum heading into the
district finale Oct. 20 against
Lakewood Ranch. That will be
Venice's homecoming.
This Friday is Port Char-
lotte's homecoming. The In-
dians would love to send
the Pirate faithful home sad.
Venice is hoping to suc-
cessfully operate its veer of-
fense. The offensive line
needs to step up and "git 'r
done."


The triple-pronged run-
ning attack has proved to be
effective at times this season.
Al Mitchell, Paul Costanzo
and Jimmy Laurie all need to
take it up a notch.
From film, the Venice
coaches are impressed with
Port's "Mike" linebacker and
defensive end.
Defensively, Venice will be
facing a team that throws
the ball almost all of the time
out of-the shotgun. There's a
reason for that all of the
running backs have been
injured. One of them, Chris
Fira, may be healthy enough
to return. He played for Ven-
ice junior varsity two years
ago.
Quarterback Kevin McLaf-
ferty has thrown for closed to
800 yards and sixTDs.
Free safety Trey Burton has
looked awfully strong being a
freshman in the Indian sec-
ondary.

Venice's "Mike" linebacker,
Ethan Mix, is injured and
done for the season. Al
Mitchell and Jimmy Laurie
will fill in with a vengeance.

Weekly award winners
were presented with plaques
at Tuesday's Linebacker Club
luncheon.
The Rudy Award for prac-
tice player. of the week is
junior center/tackle Dan "Big
Mean House" Burke.

District V to join suit against state board




DIistrict to join suit against state board


The Sarasota County
School Board is hedg-
ing its bet that a newly
formed commission
won't bypass its right as
sole sponsor of charter
schools.


stand why the Legislature did
what they did," said John
Lewis, chairman of the fledg-
ling commission.
A former legislator with 12
years under his belt, Lewis is
used to letting the court sys-
tem determine constitution-


ality issues.
"The mechanism is there
for school districts to opt out.
What they're worried about is
the long list of conditions
(they must meet to opt out).
That makes them uncomfort-
able. That means the state


board could say you don't
meet criteria."
Among other things, a
school board must show it
doesn't have a history of dis-
couraging charter schools in
order to retain exclusivity.
Sarasota County hasn't


approved a charter school in
nearly three years.
"I would never have
guessed, after we'd gone
through all of this, that we
might be deemed unconsti-
tutional. All we wanted to do
is enhance public education.


I didn't know there would be
such a commotion over it.
"Even if they don't win, I
believe they will still like what
we do," Lewis said.

BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


The Sarasota County
School Board has agreed to
come up with funds to help
sue the state over the creation
of a commission to sponsor
charter schools. School
boards want to retain sole
authority over the creation of
charter schools.
The board agreed to con-
tribute $2,500 to the Florida
School Boards Association. It
made the decision at a
Tuesday workshop. It will
pass a formal resolution at its
next meeting.
FSBA, which collects
annual dues from the board,
is soliciting all public school
districts for additional funds
to help pay legal fees and liti-
gations costs.
Wayne Blanton, executive
director of FSBA, said
Tuesday his organization
already has nine districts
signed on, including Alachua,
Broward, Duval, Lee, Palm
Beach, St. Johns and Sarasota.
He expects 30-40 will ulti-
mately join in the suit chal-
lenging the law's constitu-
tionality.
"We don't think they have
any authority," Blanton said.
"The school board is fully
bypassed in the decision-
making process, and thus its
authority to operate, control
and supervise charter schools
is 'interdicted entirely,"
Blanton said.,
S"Thus, we believe (the new
commission) is unconstitu-
tional and denies elected
school boards of important
rights guaranteed in the
Florida Constitution."
FSBA 'hired Meyer and
Brooks PA to represent it.
Blanton expects FSBA will
file an official complaint
against the Florida State
Board of Education within
the next two weeks.
Charter schools are public
schools that are run by their
own boards independent of
the county school board.
Exclusive rumors
The board was reacting to
rumors the state board could
be stingy in granting "exclu-
sivity" to school boards who
seek to opt out of its grasp.
Last month the Sarasota
County School Board passed
a resolution requesting the
state board allow it to opt out
of the new law. The opt-out
provision grants a school
board exclusive authority to
sponsor charter schools with-
in its geographical bound-
aries.
"The rumor about the
State Board is that they will do
it (grant opt outs) with very
few districts," said Associate
Superintendent Lori White.
Florida Schools of
Excellence Commission was
established by the Legislature
last session with the passage
of HB 135. It formalized a
"best practice" in charter
school law promoting col-
laboration with municipali-
ties, colleges, universities and
regional educational consor-
tia to cosponsor charter
schools.
Twenty-six states and the
District of Columbia already
have the alternative route to
sponsorship.
The law could give charter
school applicants another
avenue around school board
sponsorship.
No hard feelings
"I understand why FSBA is
challenging, and I under-

Well-done roast
The Pines of Sarasota, in
conjunction with Circus
Sarasota, will show its grati-
tude to one of Sarasota's best
known community activists
and President Emeritus of the
Pines of Sarasota Foundation,
Art Goldberg, at an apprecia-
tion roast Friday evening, Oct.
13. The event, combining
cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and
silent auction with a dinner
and the roast, starts at 6 p.m.
at the Sahib Shrine Center at
600 North Beneva Road.
Art Goldberg was one of:
the community leaders who
formed the Pines of Sarasota
Foundation, serving as the
foundation's first chair. He
later occupied the position of
president and CEO of the
foundation before being
named president emeritus.
Circus Sarasota has provid-
ed clown performances and
other entertainment for Pines
residents for many years as
part of the circus' outreach
program. The Pines serves'
senior residents of Sarasota
and Manatee counties.
Master of ceremonies for
the roast is J. R. "Wells"
Purmort. Among the featured
auction items is a package i
from Circus Sarasota includ-
ing six seats in a VIP Box at
Circus Sarasota's winter pro-
duction, "Celebrating a
Decade of Excellence," to be
performed Feb. 2-25; an
exclusive interactive session
with premier aerialistDolly
Jacobs in rehearsal; a guest
ringmaster's spot at one of the
February performances and a
backstage tour. I was a guest
ringmaster last year and cher-
ish my silver whistle. In this
job I get to do some fun
things, but let me tell you that
was one of the most fun of all.
We are so lucky to have a cir-
cus of that caliber in this area
to continue the rich circus
legacy. Other shows continue
to winter here and/or to per-
form here but Circus Sarasota
is the only true area circus,
with an' outreach program
that benefits people of all
ages.
Tickets are $150 per person
and reservations were closed
Oct. 6, but I am sure you could
call in a telephone bid for the
auction. Who knows? There
might even be a ticket left for
dinner. For more information,
call Pines Foundation at 955-
6293.
Bigger Bigs
Big Brothers Big Sisters of
the Sun Coast will take flight

Someone needs to notify
Guinness.
Saturday, Oct. 14, when
Michael Saunders Venice
office hosts a 23-home tour, it
could be that a new record
will be made.
"It is like an open house on
steroids" Venice broker and
office manager for the
Michael Saunders firm Dana
Schroeder said.
The gigantic tour of homes
that are for sale in the Venice
area was an idea waiting to
happen, another attempt to
reach out to potential buyers
in a market very different
from the sellers market of a
year ago. In those days,
homes sold almost as fast as
they came on the market,
with prices rising at almost
unheard-of rates.
Flipper is not just a bottle-
nosed dolphin
The term "flipper" was
coined to describe those real
estate buyers who planned
only to hold a home or condo
long enough to close, on the
deal and then "flip" it to
someone else, pocketing a
hefty profit.
S"The market changed last
summer," Realtor Joanne
Jacobson said. "Today homes
are on the market for 100 or
more days."
The "flippers" have van-
ished, some with their tails
between their legs, victims of
their own greed, as the mar-
ket began to stabilize and
revert to a more normal situa-
tion.
With the "flippers" gone,
but more homes on the mar-
ket as some people decided to
cash in, albeit too late, on the
frenzy, sales charts were tak-
ing on a .new look. From
January 2005 to September of
this year, some 1,600 homes
were put on the market while
home sales hovered around
the 200 range. Monthly aver-
age sales dipped below 200 in
September 2005, and have
stayed there since that time,


At r .,t


showing moderate gains from
January to May of this year.
While listings were up and
sales relatively flat, 30-year
fixed rate mortgage rates have
hovered around 6 percent,
the lowest rates seen in the
Venice area in more than 30
years. The high point was
reached in 1981 when the rate
hit 16.63 percent. It remained
above 10 percent until 1990,
when area home prices began
increasing, reaching record
levels a year ago.
Today's prices have backed
off somewhat, and with the
number of listings, there is no
doubt that this is a buyers'
market.
Realtors respond to a
changing market
To deal with this new sce-
nario, Realtors had to resort
to new strategies to serve
both their buyers and their
sellers. The home tour varia-
tion on the traditional open
house scenario is one of those
changes.
A few months ago, several
Realtors from different firms,
including the Venice office of
Michael Saunders, hosted a
tour of homes in the
Jacaranda area. This tour has
more than twice the number
of homes on that tour, covers
a broader area and price
range and has one additional
twist: Potential home buyers
can leave the driving to some-
one else.
Transportation will be pro-
vided to anyone who does not

Rare biological find in Mote's hands


Habitat honored


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER
The key to unlocking
Lemon Bay's ecological past
- and future was found in
a cookie house.
A treasure trove of histori-
cal, environmentally signifi-
cant documents from the
1930s was recently discovered
in the original home of Bass
Laboratory, known locally as
the "Cookie House," when it
was moved for restoration.
According to Ernest
Estevez, the director of Mote
Marine Laboratory in
Sarasota, the documents will
offer important insights into
impacts Lemon Bay has
weathered over the last 75
years and what might be
done to address them.
Since joining Mote in 1979,
Estevez has conducted stud-
ies of water quality, seagrass-
es, wetlands, invertebrates,
oysters and clams in the tidal
reaches of more than three
dozen Florida rivers, empha-
sizing the importance of pre-
serving and restoring natural,
flows of fresh water to estuar-
ies.
Estevez explained the sig-
nificance of the discovery to
an attentive crowd at
Thursday's meeting of the
Southwest Alliance of
Homeonwers Associations at
Boca Royale Country Club.
Among the audience were
three current county com-
missioners Shannon
Staub, Jon Thaxton and Paul
Mercier and one commis-
sioner-elect, Joe Barbetta.
"I thought this was going to
be my retirement project,"
Estevez joked. "But because
of the Lemon Bay League, the
Gulf Coast Foundation and
others, we're starting, the

process of going through
these documents."
Objectives
Estevez said his team's first
objective would be to pre-
serve the documents. The
second would be to get them,
into an electronic format, so
that researchers could better
study them.
"I'm quite confident that
with time I can reconstruct
the natural ecology of Lemon
Bay in the 1930s," Estevez
said. "If we can discover what
Lemon Bay was, then we'll
know what nature wanted for
this area."
Estevez explained that at
this particular latitude, in this
tide range, with this climate
and these soil types, nature
will produce a specific out-
come in terms of a unique
ecosystem.
"By finding out what
nature had produced, given
thousands of years of time,
we know what nature still
wants to do with Lemon Bay,
the Gulf of Mexico or the
Myakka River," he said. '
Estevez challenged the
audience to imagine the old-
est building in southwest
Florida they could think of.
"Chances are if we peel it
off, some of -the seeds that
were buried under it when it
was first made would germi-
nate," he said, pointing out
that the veneer of alteration
has not so affected Lemon
Bay that it could not recover
its pristine former self.
Bass family
The Bass Laboratory was
founded in 1931 by John E.
Bass Jr. in memory of his
father. Its purpose was to fur-
nish research facilities to

"Bass came from a family

Because his family included
diplomats who were sta-

Harbor and eventually to the

ways, including the Calo-
osahatchee, Peace and My-
akka rivers, abounded with a.
variety of aquatic life.
"They did a number of
important projects related to'
medical research. They dis-
covered a number of new
species in this area. They
wrote everything down. There
were carbon copies. There
were telegrams. Logbooks.
They would write things out
and then they would sit down
and type them out."
Needle in a haystack ,
One such report detailed a
plethora of scallops in Lemon


Bay. Another showed the pre-
dominance of a small, sewing
needle-sized fish, now long
gone; requiring exquisitely
clean water. Sawfish were so
common theywere a nuisance.
"Sawfish were the first fish
to be declared an endangered
species," Estevez said. "They
were extremely abundant in
Lemon Bay (back then)."
Another report revealed a
creek that Estevez and his
team have vowed to find.
"I think it's near Grove
City," he said. "This one tidal
creek was such a reservoir of
diversity and abundance of
marine life that it was a must-
see for every scientist who
came to Englewood. They


would all go down there with
a dip net, or put a light out at
night and see what gathered
under it. We're going to find
that creek and we're going to
look at it and see what it looks
like now," he added.
Thaxton asked Estevez
how he planned to find the
creek.
"We have 26 banker boxes
of records to go through, and
I'm confident it's in there,"
Estevez said.
He then looked out into
the audience.
"I could use some volun-
teers," he said.

Garden Elementary 5th grade class holds car wash


BY COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER

Senior yearbook pictures
are a milestone for every high
school student. But, at Venice
High School, certain com-
plaints have been made
regarding sitting fee costs and
the lack of choice of photog-
raphers to take senior photos.
Bryn Alan in Sarasota is the
contracted photographer for
VHS. According to the school
newsletter, Pathfinder, no other
photo from any other photog-
rapher will be considered for
theyearbook.And there is a$15
sitting fee to take the required
photo to be included in the
yearbook spread.
Last year, Dove Barratt, a
professional photographer,
wanted to submit her own
senior photo of her son. The
background, however, did not.
match the rest of the senior
photos. The photo was placed
at the end of the regular list-
ings of seniors, out of alpha-
betical order.
Don Remo, a teacher at
VHS, helps students put
together the yearbook each
year. According to Remo,


Barratt's son was placed at the
end of the alphabet along
with students who had sub-
mitted late photos or also had
different backgrounds..

A question of money
Remo also said a student
can have any photographer
take his or her senior picture.
To maintain a uniformity of
the yearbook layout, however,
students must sit for Bryn
Alan for at least four photos
for a $15 sitting fee.
The sitting fee has two pri-
mary functions. According to
Remo, two-thirds of the
money obtained for the sit-
ting fee goes back to the year-
book funds to help cut the
costs of the yearbook itself,
which was $50 last year. The
remaining third would go to
the photographer to compen-
sate his or her time for stu-
dents who choose not to pur-
chase photos.
Parents who consider the
amount to be a problem can
visit with Candy Millington,
VHS principal.
"If parents approach me
about cost, certain arrange-
ments could be made,"


Millington said.
So far, according to
Millington and Remo, no par-
ent has approached either
party about the sitting fee
being a problem.
Millington also said they
could eliminate the $15 cost.
This would increase the price of
the yearbook.

A question of taste
Barratt said she was also
concerned about the choice
of photographer whom VHS
has contracted. According to
Remo, Bryn Alan is the best
company for the job that
meets all of their needs. In
addition to the senior and
underclassmen portraits for
the yearbook, Bryn Alan is
also on-call for all of the
school's picture needs, such
as dances, sports' teams,
plays and the like.
Remo said he would be
happy to look at any and all
bids from photographers who
would provide the same seT-
vices Bryn Alan has provided
over the years.

Harvest Moon rising is the perfect back drop for an outdoor festival.


MARY APOSTOLU
STAFF VTV P

The setting couldn't have
been more authentic, with
the full moon rising' Friday
night. Garden Elementary
was the setting for its first
(and hopefully annual)
Harvest Festival presented by
the PTO.
Bounce houses, face paint-
ing, pony rides, story telling
centers and dance perfor-
mances to name a few.
"The turnout was amaz-
ing. I would like to thank
everyone that participated in
this event. The biggest thank
you is to our principal, John
McQueen for 'Rekindling the
Spirit' here at Garden. John is
our superific inspiration,"
said PTO President, Tammi
Stephens.
Each grade was responsi-
ble for a booth idea, with pro-
ceeds from each booth going
back 100% to that class, grade
or group. Game booths lined


the perimeter of the faculty
parking lot.
Sandy candy was a big hit
with kids choosing various
colors and flavors of granular
candy, and arranging them
artfully in end-capped straws.
One of the more popular
games, was "guts galore." ESE
teacher, Mrs. Tubbesing wore
a protective suit and goggles
and sat in a chair while kids
paid one ticket per scoop to
fling scoops of pumpkin guts
at her. This booth was put on
by the ESE (Exceptional
Student Education) teachers,
with proceeds going for
Autism research.
The dunk tank had many
dunkees, including Garden
Principal John McQueen,
teacher Ron Skow and PTO
President Tammi Stephens. It
seemed there are some bud-
ding pitchers at Garden
Elementary, because there
was a whole lot of dunking
going on.
Kindergarten teachers
Mrs. Francis and Mrs., Sells
manned their bowling booth
all night, glow necklace prizes
were a big hit. Their grade
raised the most of all the
booths, making nearly $500.
The event chairperson was
Lori Turcovics, who organized
a host of sub-committees.
Lynn Hague and Sandi
Raynor, PTO volunteer coor-


dinators, had the dauntless
task of keeping the flow of
volunteers moving and all of
the various tasks covered.
The ticket booth, game sta-
tions, food booths and story
centers were all reliant on vol-
unteers.
PTO had various booths
and amusements, netting
over $1000. on this event.
These monies will be used to
fund various projects around
Garden this year. Every child
that attends Garden benefits
from PTO gifts, whether it's
for teacher support, DARE,
Young Americans, media or
books.
This year, the PTO is
pleased to see a greater influx
of family participation in its
sponsored activities and
meetings. Families are now
becoming more and more
involved in their kids' school,
and that reflects in the atti-
tude of the kids, their school-
work, and their willingness to
work hard. It's all about pride.
And it's coming back.
"Due to our ever increas-
ing parent involvement, I am
the most spoiled principal in
south county," said
McQueen.

Members of the Rotary Club of Venice-Nokomis Jerry Zwers and Jane Mendola brought dictio-
naries to the third grade class at Epiphany Cathedral School. Pictured is the third grade class


and teacher Shannon Dalton.

STAFF REPORT

For the fourth year in a row
the Venice Nokomis Rotary
Club has donated dictionar-
ies to the third-grade classes
of Venice Elementary, Laural-
Nokomis, Epiphany Ca-
thedral School and Venice
Christian School. Lisa
Hawkins is the chairman of
the program.
The dictionary project is
designed to aid third grade
teachers in their goal to see
their students leave at the end
of the year as good writers,
active readers, and creative
thinkers.
"Our purposes is to pro-


vide the students in the com-
munity with their own per-
sonal dictionary," said Jerry
Zwers, president.
The dictionary is for the
children to keep, so they can
take it with them into the next
grade and use it throughout
their school career.
A dictionary is, perhaps the
first and most powerful refer-
ence tool a child should own.
Its usefulness goes beyond
the spellings, pronunciations,
and definations it provides. It
is a companion for solving
problems that arise as a child
develops his or her reading,
writing,and creative thinking
abilities.


Students at Epiphany
Cathedral School were espe-
cially interested in the longest
word in the dictionary with
1,909 letters. "We actually had
a brother and sister last year
from Epiphany Cathedral
School that could pronounce
it," said Zwers.
Teachers
Teachers benefit by know
that their students have con-
sistent access to a tool for
homework and in-class
explorations. The project is an
opportunity for children to
expand their vocabulary and,
for many, to actually own a
dictionary.

The funny side of'Beowulf'


DAVE BARRY
HUMOR COLUMNIST


This classic Dave Barry column
was originally published Nov. 2,
1997.

I believe that we parents
must encourage our children
to become educated, so they
can get into a good college
that we cannot afford.
I try to help my son, Rob,
with his schooling, but over
the years this has become
more difficult. Back when he
was dealing with basic edu-
'cational issues such as why
the sky is blue and what a
duck says, I always knew the
correct answers ("It doesn't
matter" and "Moo"). But
when Rob got into the high-
er grades, he started dealing
with complex concepts such
as the "hypotenuse," which
hadn't been invented yet
whenjewas a student. So
these days I'm useless as an
educational resource, except
on those rare occasions
when Rob is studying a topic
I'm familiar with. For exam-
ple, last year, in history class,
he studied The Sixties. That's
right: The Sixties are now
considered a historical peri-
od, just like the Roman Em-
pire, except that as far as
modem kids are concerned,
The Sixties featured stupider


haircuts.
Because I lived through
that era, when Rob asked me
about it, I was able to give
him helpful information.
"What did you do during
The Sixties?" he asked.
"None of your business," I
informed him.
Other than that, my main
contribution to his educa-
tion is to provide encourage-
ment. For example, the other
day I asked him if he had
any homework, and he told
me he had to read "Beowulf."
"Yuck!" I said, encouragingly.
I was exposed to "Beowulf"
when I was a student. If my
memory serves me correctly
(and I believe it does, because
I am copying this directly
from the encyclopedia),
"Beowulf" is an Old English
epic poem concerning a
hero who freed the court of
the Danish king Hrothgar
from the ravages of the ogre
Grendel and Grendel's moth-
er and thus became king of
the Geats.
This raises some ques-
tions, including: Who are
"the. Geats"? And why would
anybody want to be king of
them? I mean, the word
"Geat" sounds like an insult,
doesn't it? As in: "Some stupid
Geat put salami in the disk
drive!"
(Let me just state, before
I get a bunch of hate mail,
that I myself am two-thirds
Geatish.)
My point is that I have
never been a huge fan of
"Beowulf," or epic poems in
general. "Epic," in my opin-
ion, is a code word that
English teachers use for
"boring," the same way they
use "satirical" when they
mean "you will not laugh


once." Nevertheless I stress-
ed to Rob that he should
make this homework his
absolute highest priority,
allowing nothing to come
ahead of it, but that first we
would go out for Italian food.
I like to do this with Rob
because he always orders
pizza, which I am not allowed
to eat because it contains
cholesterol, but it is a scien-
tific fact that your'body will
not absorb cholesterol if you
take it from another person's
plate.
Rob drove us to the res-
taurant. I like to let him
drive because it improves
my circulation by causing
my heart to beat 175,000
times per minute, although
this particular trip was fairly
relaxing right up until Rob
made the rookie error of
actually stopping at a red
light, rather than accelerat-
ing through it as is custo-
mary in Miami, the result
being that we were rammed
by the car behind us. The
other driver, as required by
local law, was uninsured
and spoke no English. This
gave us an educational
opportunity to brush up on
our Spanish by engaging in
a dialogue with the other
driver, which went like
this:
US (pointing at the light):
Rojo! ("Red!")
OTHER DRIVER: No! Am-
arillo! ("No! Yellow!)
US: Like heck-o! ("We dis-
agree!")
OTHER DRIVER: Que son?
Guitos? ("What are you?
Geats?") It took two hours
and two police officers to sort
it out, with the outcome
being that the other driver
received a ticket-o. Fortun-


ately, my car sustained only
superficial damage, which
I'm sure at today's bodywork
prices can be repaired for
no more than it would cost
to purchase the entire con-
tents of the Louvre at retail.
Because of this delay, we
were late getting back from
the restaurant, but Rob still
would have had time to do
his homework, except that
- this is true the police
had set up roadblocks
around our neighborhood
and were not letting any-
body in. An officer told us
there had been several
reports of shots fired, and
police were going house-to-
house with dogs. I was con-
cerned about this, but Rob
took it well; I think he was
hoping that one of the dogs
would eat his copy of
"Beowulf."
The police never found
the source of the shots (it
wag probably just some in-
nocent thing perhaps a
neighbor who couldn't lo-
cate his remote control
and decided to turn off his
TV with his AK-47). But we
had to wait at the road-
block for over an hour,
which meant that Rob did
not start read-ing "Beowulf"
until after midnight. So
basically, this entire col-
umn is really just a note to
his English teacher to say:
Please excuse Rob if he was
unprepared. And I hope
you were not offended by
my tone. It's satirical..

While acute \'V
S'' ^ pain usually comes on
T suddenly and can be traced to
an exact source, chronic pain
may persist in the absence of
past injury Aor evidence of body
i damage. Chronic pain is also resistant
to most "medical treatments. Thus,
Many Americans with chronic pain turn
Sto pain-relievers to mask symptoms. Not
only does this approach fail to address
the underlying causess, recent studies
have shown that even such common over-
the-counter drugs as acetaminophen carry
a *'erv real' potential to cause serious side
effects with prolonged use. In light of this
S,"analgesic dilemma," people with chronic
! pa~i owe it to themselves to investigate
the potential for chiropractic to relieve
their pain. Chiropractic offers the option
of managing pain without drugs.


RS. Aspirin can cause gastrointestinal
upset, and some prescription pain
niMications are addictive.

during tour hours.
The coastal factor
The major difference
between the Southwest
Florida market and the rest of
the United States is the prox-
imity of the Gulf Coast. Prices
in coastal area tend to be less
-"- volatile because there is a
finite amount of coastal land
available for development.
Current prices in Maine,
along the Jersey shore, the
Carolinas and along most of
.,- the coastal areas of Florida
are quite similar for like-size
lots- and homes.
The 23 homes on the tour
range in price from $198,000,
to $869,000 and include
homes from South Venice to
Osprey, two-bedroom houses
and condos to a four-bed-
room, two-bath house.
The top-price listing is a
ree- penthouse at Blackburn
r-heated- Harbor with a wraparound
-heated balcony, panoramic views
and living room sliders that


pull back from the southwest
corner of the room, offering
an unbroken view of gulf sun-
sets.
All the homes will be open
10 a.m.-2 p.m. As it will be
impossible to tour all 23
homes in four hours, poten-
tial buyers should plan to
concentrate on the four or
five homes that seem to best
fit their needs and pocket-
books.
A complete list is included
in the accompanying infor-
mation box. A list of tour
homes with driving direc-
tions is available at the
Michael Saunders Venice
office, 110 N. Nokomis Ave.
