New law will give




break to developers


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR
Think development
ought to pay its. fair share of
road improvements?
So ,does the state of
Florida, but a proposed city
ordinance implementing
the state's Pay as You Grow
Plan could make some of
Venice's "developer extrac-
tions" a thing of the past.


The Venice Planning
Commission held a public
hearing on the proposed
ordinance Tuesday.
Called the Proportionate
Fair-Share Ordinance, the
measure would limit a
developer's contributions
for road improvements to
the pro rata portion of a
project's impact on "trans-
portation facilities."
Payment would only be


required for projects that
degrade a road below the
established level of service.
A single-family home, for
example, would not trigger
the law, according to
Planning Director Tom
Slaughter.
The city's practice has
been to tie development
approvals to developer con-
tributions for infrastruc-
ture, when possible shifting


the entire expense to the
developer even if his project
was the cause of only part
of the impact. Developers
have found it expedient to
enter into agreements with
the city in order to move
their projects along.
The new law would
reduce the city's leverage,
City Manager Marty Black

Dropla sex case



going to trial


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

A trial date. has been
set for a Venice man in
connection with a sex
case involving his 6-year-
old female relative.
According to court
documents, a trial date of
Nov. 13 has been set for
Andrew M. Dropla, 39,
900 block Inlet Circle
Road, Venice.
Dropla was arrested
Dec. 15, 2005. He was
originally charged with
sexual battery (rape) of a
child under 12 years old.
That charge has since
been reduced to lewd and
lascivious behavior or
conduct by a person
older than 18.
In January, Dropla also
was arrested and charged
with five counts of pos-
.,session of obscene mate-
*rial and possession of
photographs of sexual
performances by a child.
It is not known how or
if the two cases are relat-
ed. However, they are
being tried simultane-
ously, according to court
records.
Computer seized
According to investiga-
tors, the original rape
investigation revealed a
history of sexual battery
complaints against Diopla.
Dropla's girlfriend told
authorities she saw
Dropla look at porn on
his laptop computer.
Authorities seized the
computer.


A subsequent search
turned up numerous
pornographic images of
naked children in sexual
poses and having sex
with adults.
Deviant' history
A Venice police report
states that Dropla has a
"deviant" sexual history.
According to investiga-
tors, the original rape
investigation revealed a
history of sexual battery
complaints against Dropla.
In the 1980s, Dropla
was accused of molesting
his nieces, who were
between the ages of 4
and 7.
An agreement was
reached between family
members and no charges
were filed.
Dropla also is accused
of committing sexual bat-
tery on a stepbrother
between 1982-1986. The
victim told family mem-
bers, but law enforce-
ment was never notified.
In 1996, Dropla was
arrested in North
Carolina for first-degree
rape, but the charges
were dismissed because
the family believed the
trial Would be traumatic
to the victim.
In 1998, Dropla also
was suspected of expos-
ing himself to children on
a school bus.

The teachers union con-
siders suing the state over
its new STAR merit-pay
program because it doesn't
treat teachers in upper and
lower socioeconomic set-
tings fairly.

BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Under state computations,
teachers at schools' serving
wealthier families- namely
Pine View School for the
Gifted would receive a dis-
proportionate share of Special
Teachers Are Rewarded merit
pay bonuses.
That's the finding of a com-
mittee of Sarasota County
teachers and school adminis-
trators. They're trying to
develop a more equitable dis-
tribution of STAR funds.
The proceedings have been
so frustrating, Sarasota
Classified/Teacher
Association representatives
are threatening to sue the
state over its implementation.
"We intend to discuss this
matter with our attorneys to
see if it (lack of fairness) can
serve as the basis'of a lawsuit


against the state," said SC/TA
President Barry Dubin in a
recent communique to mem-
bers.
Committee members are
not happy with the state's
"value added" tables as a fair
means of determining stu-
dent learning gains, upon
which merit pay would be
based, he said Tuesday.
Under the STAR program,
passed in May by the Florida
Legislature, only the top 25
percent of a district's teachers
would qualify for merit pay.
The district has until
December to come up with a
plan that passes state muster
or it forfeits its $2.3 million
share of STAR funds. The
money would go back into a
pot to be shared by teachers in
counties that adopt a plan.
Teachers must sign off on
the district's plan under col-
lective bargaining rules.

Apprehensions
Unhappy that districts
were ignoring a law passed
three years ago that mandated
merit pay plans, the state
board then came .up with

Poll favors light industry

BY DON MOORE
STAFF REPORT

The Venice Area Chamber
of Commerce's efforts to pro-
mote light industry in the area
is beginning to have a snow-
balling effect, at least as far as
the Gondolier's coupon cam-


paign is concerned.
A few days ago the paper
wrote a story asking its readers
how they felt about the cham-
ber's efforts to bring light
industry -into Venice. Along,
with the story was a coupon
which gave readers a chance
to voice their support or objec-

tion to the proposal if they,
mailed it back to the pappr.
As of Tuesday morning, the
Gondolier has received 243
Ballots from people. Of this
amount, 162 favored industri-
al development and 71 were
against the proposition.
However, of the ballots that
have been returned in support
of the idea, 55 were sent in
directly from chamber mem-
bers who used the organiza-
tion's own ballot to reply to the
poll. What the chamber did
was copy the newspaper's bal-


lot and direct mail a copy of
the coupon.
But even if one discounted
these ballots, the public res-
ponse to the questionnaire
was almost 2-1 in favor of the
chamber's position. Here is
what some of those who
replied had to sa.,
"Growth is normal, stag-
nation is not," Burke Bartlett
of Venice observed. "I'm
retired ... but I try to keep an
open mind. There are thou-

Tropical Bob's thoughts

on diesel prices

Diesel is 40 to 50 cents a
gallon more than regular gaso-
line now; more even than pre- '
mium gasoline. It used to be
the cheapest motor fuel. "
And you're paying for diesel .
price gouging, as you enjoy
falling gas prices.
Consider: Merchandise is
transported using diesel fuel. i -
Municipal and county vehi-
cles bum diesel. Many school
buses do. Same for military .
vehicles. Farm tractors need it -.
to harvest. Commercial fish-
ing boats use it, too.
You pay at the counter
when these folks overpay at TROPICAL BOB
the pump. WEATHER COMMENTS

Public VL schools look for help to serve private schools



Public schools look for help to serve private schools,


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Already facing a shortage
of occupational, physical and
speech therapists, Sarasota
County Schools is now faced
with serving the equivalent of
an additional school full of
private school students iden-
tified in need of those ser-
vices.
School administrators say
they've identified an addi-
tional 300 students in 44 pri-
vate schools that maybe eligi-
ble for services under new
federal rules.
The "proportional share"
requirement that mandates
public schools share federal
funds from the Individuals
with Disabilities Education
Act with private schools has
been around since 1997, but
new rules don't give school
districts credit for Florida's
McKay Scholarships or alter-
native funding sources, say
administrators.
Beginning this year, the
money must come directly
out of federal IDEA funds that
are allocated to each school
district.
"Under old IDEA rules,
those funds could come from
any place," said Mike
McHugh, director of pupil
support services for Sarasota
County Schools.
He estimates the district
will have to come up with
another $280,000 from its
$8.2 million federal grant to
comply.
"We're working now to
identify students in need of'

Florida Law requires voters

polls without current and
valid ID, you will be required

Supervisor of Elections
Kathy Dent invites the public
to attend logic and accuracy
testing of the county's voting
and tabulating equipment to
be used in the Nov. 7 elec-
tions.
The testing is scheduled for
Friday, Oct. 20, at 9 am. at the
office of the Supervisor of
Elections in the .Terrace
Building at 2001 Adams Lane,
Sarasota.
Logic and accuracy testing
is performed prior to every
election on a random sam-
pling of all the voting
machines that will be fielded
on election day to ensure that
they are operating and
recording accurately. Testing
of the tabulating equipment
and election reporting soft-
ware is also conducted prior
to every election.
Voters who have questions
may contact the supervisor of
elections office at 861-8600.

"We are confirming those

Little League misses payment schedule


BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFF WRITER

Representatives of Venice
Little League were supposed
to appear at Monday's meet-
ing of the Venice Parks and
Recreation Board "with their
checkbook in hand."
They had assured county
Parks and Recreation
Manager Jack Colligan they
would be there to pay at least
part of VLL's long-standing
electric bill.
They didn't show up.
Colligan said he had also
been assured by the VLL offi-
icers at a meeting last
Thursday that they would
bring their financial records
Ifor the parks board to review,
;in a effort to prove that the
league is indeed unable to
pay the $13,300 bill in full.
"We have made it clear in
several meetings with them,"
Said Colligan, "that we are
More than willing to accept
regular small payments if
necessary while they are get-
ting their affairs in order. But
:for some reason, they have
chosen to ignore our requests
ifor good faith payments."
VLL frequently turns on
!the lights at the Wellfield
Complex and Chuck Reiter
Field for night sessions. Its
:written agreement with the
county requires that it pay
:the county for the electricity
;used based on an estab-
lished hourly rate. The
,county, in turn, pays the
actual "demand charges"


directly to Florida Power
and Light.
History
Colligan said that until
about five years ago, VLL
had always paid its bills.
"The league president at
that time," he said, "felt the
county should offer the ser-
vice free of charge. But
instead of going before the
county commission with a
request to change the policy,
he just arbitrarily refused to
pay. Although the league has
made a few payments, we've
basically been fighting with
them ever since.
"What they owe us now
reflects our going back only
two years, instead of the
four years worth to which
we would actually have a
right. We've done everything
possible to reduce their
costs."
The county could shut
the power off at the ball
fields but hasn't yet because
it wants the kids to be able
to play.
"You're worried about
hurting their feelings," said
parks board chairman Walt
Jennings, "but they are
thumbing their nose at you.
It's time to take more drastic
action."
Colligan said he would
have to go back to his bosses
to get direction from them
before taking such action.
The parks board decided
to write the VLL a letter,
copied to each member of


the executive committee,
asking for an explanation of
why the promised payment
wasn't made.
It noted that the other
eight leagues using the coun-
ty fields pay their light bills
according to the agreement
each has signed. In addition,
the city of Venice budgets
$2,000 each year for each
league to help with its
expenses, if the league makes
a formal request for it.
Venice Director of Public
Works Larry Heath verified
VLL had requested and
received $2,000 annually for
at least the past two years.
"Unfortunately," said
Heath, "they have apparently
chosen to use that money for
something other than their
electric bill."
New ID system
The use of the ball fields and
lights has been on the honor
system for many years, with
the leagues expected to follow
established schedules of
games and practices.
"We don't have the man-
power to check all our fields
every night," said Colligan,
"and for some reason, VLL
tends to have a lot of last-
minute schedule changes,
which makes their field use
hard to track." ,
When no one will admit to
using the fields, it has been
impossible to know whom to
bill for those hours. County
representatives said a new,
more secure system is being


installed in county parks by
which the lighting systems
will have to be accessed using
a PIN number assigned to
specific, authorized users.
In Venice, the new system
'is already in use at Chuck
Reiter Field, and is expected
to be installed soon at a
cost of approximately $18,000
- at the Wellfield Complex.

Facilities Manager Bill White
informed the board the roof had
been damaged by young people
climbing on it, knocking gravel
off and leaving it discolored. He
suggested it would be cost-pro-
hibitive to replace the roof, but
that it couldbe re-coated peri-
odically. The key to maintain-
ing the appearance, however,
will be finding a way to keep
people off the roof. A variety
of recommendations will be
considered.

DEVELOPERS, from page 1A


said in an interview
Tuesday.
Developers would be
required to pay their contri-
butions up front, but would
be paying only part of the
cost of the improvements
their projects have made
necessary. The work won't
get done until it's fully fund-
ed from other projects or
the city decides to front the
money.
Although, the law would
apply to all roads, a project
not determined to degrade
the level of service would be
exempt.
For example, Slaughter
said, the traffic light to be
installed at Auburn Road
and East Venice Avenue
would not have been
delayed by the proposed
ordinance because the
-county ruled development
along Auburn Road didn't
make a light necessary.
Best deal
The state and Sarasota
County will also be bound
by fair-share laws, which
could pose another prob-
lem for the city.'
Part of the new ordi-
nance is a definition of con-
currency that states: "trans-
portation facilities needed
to serve new development


II-A ('V4


shall be in place or under
actual construction within
three years after the local
government approves a
building permit or its func-
tional equivalent that
results in traffic genera-
tion."
The city projects capital
improvements out three
years but the county and
state use longer timetables.
Work on Venice Bypass, for
example, is not anticipated
for 10 years or more even
though the road is already
below its level of service.
Under state 'law fair-
share funds and impact fee
money can't be used for the
same project, and a devel-
oper will be entitled to
impact fee credits from the
county if fair-share pay-
ments to offset impact have
been made.
Slaughter said the city
will still seek to hold devel-
opers responsible for con-
tributions over and above
the minimum.
"On individual projects
we'll continue to look for
enhancements," he said.
"We'll get the best deal pos-
sible."
The commission voted
unanimously to recom-
mend council adopt the
ordinance.

another plan.
Efficiency-Compensation,
commonly called E-Comp,
would have given 5-percent
bonuses to the top 10 percent
of teachers. But the rules were
very prescriptive, and districts
again balked. Some made no
effort at compliance, while
others adopted a plan but did-
n't implement it.
Sarasota County Schools
adopted a plan that even top
officials admit was weak.
The STAR program passed
by the 2006 Legislature was
viewed as a compromise. It


gives the same 5-percent
bonus to a greater number of
teachers the top 25 percent
of teachers, based largely on
FCAT results. The legislature
funded the program with a
one-year appropriation of
$147.5 million.
Earlier this month the state
board of education zipped off
letters designed to light a fire
under schools. It found, again,
no school district was in com-
pliance. On Tuesday it finally
announced the first district-
approved plan submitted by
Hillsborough County Schools.

If Sarasota County Schools
doesn't submit an acceptable
plan by Dec. 31, it will lose
STAR funds.
The state board is also
threatening to cut school lot-
tery funds.
"We hoped by getting to
learning gains we could take
away bias toward the wealthi-
er kids," Dubin said. "The data
didn't show that. It actually
punishes teachers. It would
do the opposite of what law
wants to do. I can't believe
they couldn't have done a bet-
ter job in the calculations to


q4,,ice


ensure fairness," Dubin said.
Luckily, there is wiggle
room in the rules. District can
and are trying to develop a
comparable merit pay plan
based on their own set of cal-
culations and student assess-
ments. The STAR committee
is meeting weekly and staff
are re-crunching test data to
come up with a more equi-
table way to distribute STAR
bonuses.

Midnight Pass costs force review Stickney Point Bridge on schedule ... probably


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

A Midnight Pass restora-
tion project that apparently
will cost Sarasota County
more than $38 million over 30
years has budget officials
scrambling to determine
where the money will come
from, and politicians con-
cerned about long-term pub-
lic support.
Oct 10, the county com-
mission allocated another
$272,000 so the environmen-
tal engineer who has been
pursuing federal and state
permission to reopen the for-
mer coastal inlet can com-
plete a tedious process that
began more than 2 1/2 years
ago.
Karyn Erickson, the coun-
ty's consultant, told the com-
mission she expects the joint
coastal permit to finally come
through in January 2008, and
she will spend the next 18
months negotiating with
authorities over inlet moni-
toring, -.maintenance and
environmental mitigation.
The estimated price tag
for dredging open Midnight
Pass between Siesta Key and
Casey Key now stands at
$8.7 million, with an addi-
tional $1 million annual cost
to monitor and maintain the
channel cut from Little
Sarasota Bay into the Gulf of
Mexico.
"Now is the time to ask
our county administrator
what the source of funds
will be for this project,"
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson said. "If we're not
prepared to go through with
it, then we'll have to throw
the $1 million (actually
$909,000 for Erickson) out

and call it an exercise."


'Astounded'
County officials previous-
ly anticipated permit
authorities might give the
project a green light before
the end of this year, but the
state's decision to pose a
fourth round of technical
questions prompted Erickson
to suggest the January 2008
delivery date.
"The issue of funding
for this project has been
put off, long enough,"
Commissioner Paul Mercier
said. "When a new board is
seated (and recently elected
Commissioner Joe Barbetta
is sworn in), we need to
schedule a workshop about
how to pay."
In response to questions
from Patterson, Erickson
conceded there might not
be enough sand from a
Midnight Pass dredging pro-
ject to prevent north Casey
Key erosion for the first
decade, and money might
have to be allocated for tem-
porary beach maintenance.
"I am astounded at the cost
increases," Commissioner
Shannon Staub said, "but I
still want to see if this project
can be permitted. We owe
that to community so there is
an end to hassling about this.
So far, the funds to pay for this
are coming from a source set
aside for Midnight Pass."
Midnight Pass vwas a popu-
lar coastal inlet for boaters
until it became unstable in
the 1970s and was closed in
1983 after it migrated
northward and threatened to
undermine two Siesta Key
beachfront homes. The coun-
ty began efforts to restore it
in 1988.

Notices have to be pub-
lished, legal waiting periods
have to be met, but by the first
of the year the Stickney Point
drawbridge will open on the
hour and 20 and 40 minutes
after the hour if and only if a
vessel requests it.
. Last year, similar notice was
published about the proposed
20-20-20 schedule and about,
50 negative replies were
received, a relatively tiny
response, said Barry Dragon,
chief of bridge operations for
the U.S. Coast Guard's 7th
District, and the bridge
returned to -an on-demand
schedule.
Then, this summer, without
publishing notice, the Coast


Guard tried a test of the 20-
minute system, and after three
months only five negative
responses were received, and it
seemed to work well.
"So my guess is the 20-
minute schedule will become
permanent late this year or
shortly after Jan. 1," Dragon
said, after required comment
periods expire and the sched-
ule is published in the
Congressional Record if
there isn't some sort of unfore-
seen public or'political pres-
sure brought to bear on the
Coast Guard to reverse it once
again.
Window of opportunity
Dragon says it doesn't mat-
ter .a whole lot: The bridge
opens less than twice an hour
no matter which system is


used. And he said the bridge is
not even much of a contribut-
ing factor to the heavy traffic
that has become a Siesta Key
trademark, most pronounced
during the winter season.
"The bridge is just like an
intersection ... The roadway
can't handle the traffic because
(Midnight Pass Road) turn
lanes are not long enough to
hold all the cars."
Longer stacking lanes would
ease the congestion.
"The only thing the 20-
minute schedule will do is give
some people who know about
the schedule a window of
opportunity to time their trip
(on or off the key) to miss an
opening," he said. And then,
they'll be lucky if the traffic is
light enough for them to get to
the bridge and make it over in

According to a recent study
by the National Center for
Complementary and Alternative
Medicine and the National
Center for Health Statistics, 36
percent of adults use some form of
complementary or alternative medicine.
The term "complementary and alternative
medicine" refers to the wide range of
health systems that fall outside the
mainstream. For the purposes of
discussion, mainstream may be considered
to be "conventional medicine." Hbowever,
these lines are continuously being blurred,
as both the public and the medical
establishment continue to redefine
"mainstream." Where once chiropractics
were considered to be outside 'the
mainstream, medical doctors now often
make referrals to chiropractors itlh this
in mind, patients should simply regard
their chiropractors as part of their health
maintenance team.

P.S. Today,' the public takes a multi-
pronged approach to health matters.

North Port objects to county veto power


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


They just said no. And no.
And no.
In a memo Monday to
mediator Linda Shelley, North
Port city officials repeatedly
rejected any reference in her
draft to Sarasota County hav-
ing veto power over North
Port in land annexation mat-
ters.
Shelley took the memo in
stride late Monday afternoon,
saying it was all part of the
process for negotiating a joint
planning agreement between
the city and the county.
The memo came from
North Port City Attorney Rob
Robinson, City Manager Steve
Crowell, City Planner Sam
Jones and aCity Human
Resource Manager Danny
Schult.
"Requirement to have
county approval of this agree-
ment ... will provide the
county with the ultimate veto
power over any city annexa-
tion," theywrote. 'As such, the
City of North Port cannot rec-
ommend to its commission
... the county to have such a
veto power."
On Oct. 4, Shelley asked
both Venice and North Port to
produce maps showing a
"joint planning area."
"It may encompass
annexed and unannexed
areas. That way we can see
how far apart we are," she
said.
In the memo from the
North Port officials, they
agreed "the map will be a crit-
ical importance," although
they preferred to shift empha-
sis away from numbers of
possible dwelling units in the
sections in question to
"impacts" such as infrastruc-
ture.
Then came
another "no."
cannot and
will not agree
to ... veto .
power of the
county over
city annexa-
tions," the Black
memo said.
i "While the, process you have
outlined seems workable, fur-
ther discussion with county
legal staff should be forth-
coming to determine the
applicability of such a process
There's no comparable
provision in the draft JPA for
Venice.
City Manager Marty Black
said Venice has agreed to set
annexation limits at the out-
set of any agreement, elimi-
nating the need for the coun-
ty to retain a veto.
He characterized future
city annexations as "squaring
off" the city's boundaries.
Reciprocity
Finally, the memo listed a
number of clauses the city
officials believed ought to be
Sin the planning agreement.
One stood out:
c "The city ... will require a
clause that provides that if the
i county ... attempts to exact
any monetary amounts from
the city of North Port for infra-
structure or services tied to
North Port's growth in gener-
al, as opposed to specific
developments, monetary
exactions must also be
required of the other cities in
SSarasota County. Any such
Sexaction would also be recip-
rocal for county impacts on
the city."
SWould these stipulations
contribute to a meaningful
step forward in the process or
act as impediments to an
Agreement?
Shelley saw it all philo-

sophically.
'Although I haven't had a
chance to look at North Port's
response yet, I have found
that over the last week I have
gotten lots of information
from both sides I didn't have a


week ago," she said. "This is
how the process works. I put
out a draft that they all had a
reaction to. We'll study what
everyone says to it and move
to the next level."

OUR VIEW



Keeping our thoughts to ourselves for now
.'9 .,,,


It's endorsement time, so you're probably
expecting us to offer you our recommen-
dations in the races for the 13th
Congressional District and Florida House
District 70.
You'll have to wait a little longer.
We know the election is less than three
weeks away, and early voting starts Oct. 23.
And we know whom we plan to endorse.
What we don't know is whether the people
we expect to endorse are going to stoop to
the type of mud-slinging that characterized
the primary campaigns in these races.
Usually we try to share our views early
enough for you to have them in mind as you
follow the candidates through the campaign.
By no means do we intend that you let us
make up your mind for you; choosing whom
to vote for should be an individual decision


based on all the information each voter can
accumulate.
As a newspaper, however, we have access
to the candidates that private citizens do not.
And we make an endorsement in a race only
if we have interviewed each candidate, or at
least given each the opportunity to meet
with us.
We also consider information from other
sources, including public appearances and
election forums. If not exhaustive, our
research is certainly extensive and, we hope,
worth factoring into your decision-making.
We have noticed, however, that some can-,
didates take the publication of endorse-
ments as a signal to take the gloves off. The
ones who get a recommendation perhaps
think they are in the clear at that point, while
those who don't may feel they have nothing


to lose by resorting to underhanded tactics
- which, unfortunately, seem to win a lot of
votes.
The Republican side of the Florida House
contest was marred by so much mud-sling-
ing we felt compelled to print a second edi-
torial on the race, something we've almost.
never done.
And the Republican Congressional prima-
ry was worse much worse setting new
lows on a daily basis. There was even a bit of
it on the Democratic side.
The problem is that going negative often
has positive results; too often the candidate
who slings the most mud gets the most votes
Call us idealistic, but we think that's
wrong. A candidate should earn your vote by,
telling you why to vote for him or her, not
why you shouldn't vote for the other person,


especially if that "evidence" consists mostly
of distortions and innuendo.
So in these two races we're going to hold
off announcing our endorsements until we
get a better feel for the tone of the cam-
paigns. There are a number of other races
and issues on the ballot, and we'll be dis-
cussing them without delay because we see
no risk of the candidates going negative.
Is it likely that withholding our recom-
mendation will inhibit a candidate who was
planning to go on the offensive? Maybe not.
If a candidate's philosophy is to, win at all
costs, he or she is likely to give little thought
to yet another rant from us on dirty politics.
But at least our name won't be attached to:
someone, whose :ruthless ambition is
matched only by his or her disdain for the
electoral process.

"A" school (other Venice
area schools did also).
The money can.be divided
anyway the school decides.
The options are that the
money can go back to the
schools for instruction and
improvements, or it can go
to the staff or any part of
the staff, or a combination
of both.
At Pine View, ,for
instance, the vote is always
to give the money to the
school.
This year at Venice High
it has been proposed and
approved that all the
money goes to all members
of the staff and none to
school improvements.
This proves it is not all
for the kids.

Our- 535 congressmen
and senators have tem-
porarily ended their labors
and gone home, which is
always a .problem for their
constituents. You don't
know whether to offer them
congratulations or
amnesty.
It was 48 years ago this
week that a drive was start-
ed to provide a 200-bed
hospital in Venice.

Community health cen-
ters have been created
thanks to foundation
grants and the hard
work of the
Laurel/OspreyVenice/
Nokomis CHAT Com-
munity Health Action
Team. They answer ques-
tions for people about
tough health questions.
One of the centers, at
Venice Goodwill, helped its
900th person with a very
wide variety of questions,
many on where to get
service, in some cases at
low cost. Other centers
include the Venice Public
Library, Senior Friendship
Center, Venice YMCA,
Laurel Civic Association
and Jacaranda Public
Library.

It is time to sign up to
put a boat into the Venice
Christmas Boat Parade.
You can learn a lot about
it by going to
VeniceChristmasBoat
Parade.com.
Two boat owners would
be glad to pilot their vessels
if you would decorate
them. It is a great chance to

some fun. Nothing like hav-
ing thousands of people
cheering for you. Call John
Osmulski, 809-8100.

USA Today had an article
about how wealthy areas
have the best health care.
The article referred, to a
study that rated hospitals,
and it just happens that
Venice Regional and the
Ocala Heart Institute had
the highest possible: five
stars. Sarasota Memorial
only received a three-star
rating. You need to remem-
ber that in time of need,
VRMC is the best.

The Crow's Nest is hay-
ing another fun event to
celebrate its 30th anniver-
sary. It is a two-plus-hour
scavenger hunt via boat.
The entry fee is $100 a boat
for up to four people; all
the money goes to the new
YMCA building.
There is a fun party at
the end with music and
great food and beverages,
all happening Saturday the
28th. Call the Crow's Nest at
484-9551.

The 'Gondolier Sun is
helping Women's Sertoma
put on the Sun Fiesta this
weekend. The theme this
year is Venice Rocks. Elvis
Presley will be the grand
marshal.
How fortunate Jackie
Kennedy and her members
were to get Elvis. He may
look a little familiar to you.
Prior to the Sun Fiesta,
which begins Friday night,
there is plenty going on
Thursday. Thursday night
Sertoma has its Wine Fest,
with incredible food from
lots of local restaurants,
along with a lot of wine
tasting.
A ticket is $50, benefit-

ic. Also that night is the
Third Thursday Stroll and

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Banning butts on beach best for all


Editor: ,
I have just left Venice Beach and was so disgusted with
what I saw, that I felt the need to write the Gondolier Sun and
vent to someone.,
A young child was sitting on a blanket digging into the
sand with a plastic shovel. As the child dug, he kept
unearthing buried cigarette butts. His grandmother reposi-
tioned him twice but he still kept coming up with butts.
She seemed dismayed and took the shovel from the child
and tried to distract him from any further digging by showing
him some shells. It was a sad sight indeed.
Are all smokers pigs? I know people are cringing at that
statement and saying, "Oh no, not me," and that I am making
generalities and painting all smokers with the same brush.
Maybe so, but I would like everyone who reads this to ask
themselves this question. "Have you ever seen any smoker
use any type of ashtray at the beach, or do you just see indi-
viduals treating the beach as their personal disposal system
for cigarettes."
I personally have never witnessed any smoker using an
ashtray and I think most people will agree with that state-
ment.
* Something has to be done. The beaches are the life blood
of the city of Venice and should be protected at all costs. If
smokers will not police themselves, and I don't think they will,
the town must act to preserve the greatest natural resource
we have and ban smoking on the beach.
What other choice do we have?

No logic underlying
Iraq war

Editor:
Allow me to dispel the
numerous misconceptions
rampant in our country
today. For example:
We are not, nor ever have
been, at war with Iraq. It was a
police action promoted by
Bush, as was Eisenhower's
Korean "police action." When
the troops at the end of hostil-
ities with Saddam's forces fin-
ished picking up the bou-


quets in the streets, they
became an occupational
force.
These conscripted service-
men and women are not and
never were defending our
country. They were simply
pursuing a figment of
George's imagination.
That other war was a legiti-
mate NATO invasion of
Afghanistan in pursuit of
Osama. The pursuit was only
half-hearted because of the
diversion in Iraq.
How often have you heard


that this is a war on terrorism?
Terrorism has been with us all
of our lives. It is a philosophy
and method of demonstrat-
ing that philosophy by peo-
ples who don't agree with us.
You want to fight a war on ter-
rorism, George? Just step out'
onto our streets.
Let's look at the progres-
, sion of whys: Kill Saddam -
after days of bombing, he
escaped. Biological weapons
- none. Nuclear weapons -
none. Ties with Osama -
none. Weapons of mass
destruction none. Set up a
democratic government in
Iraq- a joke!
What about our initial rea=
son to invade Iraq: the "geno-
cidal butcher, the comman-
der of the enemy forces? He's
still pussyfooting around that
pseudo government without
a clear verdict. Why don't we
at least throw him in with that
bunch in Gitmo?


Jack Aland
Manteo, N.C.


Best support is
ending the war

Editor:
Congress continues to
bring forward campaign pro-
paganda masquerading as a
debate on Iraq. Our fallen ser-
vice members deserve better.
The so-called "War on
Terror" is a sham. Pakistan
just said bin Laden is wel-
come to stay in the country
indefinitely.
There were no terrorists in
Iraq to go to war against,
except ones Bush and Cheney


themselves elevated by their
reckless occupation. And
continuing the occupation
there will just breed two more
local insurgents for every one
they pick off in a photo-op
bombing.
Let Congress know where
you stand. Magnetic car rib-
bons are cute, but if you really
support our troops, give
Congress a piece of your
mind.

Not reassured that
station is safer

Editor:
I feel so much safer now
that our police are protected
with a metal detector in the
station.
What's wrong with this pic-
ture? The taxpayer needs to
show a photo ID, which we
turn over in exchange for a
visitor's pass. We're further
admonished to leave our
purses, handbags and pack-
ages in the car and warned
that we are subject to a physi-
cal search.
The absurdity is, when was
the last time you heard about
bad guys breaking into a
police station? It seems to me
that would be the last place
they'd want to be.
So how, exactly, does this
serve and protect us (except
making us the cost of one
metal detector lighter in the
wallet)?

We should trust the people


More talk, less regulation


BY BILL SUBLETTE
GUEST COLUMNIST

As Floridians, our lives
have been profoundly influ-
enced by citizens taking ini-
tiative to amend Florida's
Constitution.
Citizens have limited polit-
ical terms, mandated smaller
classrooms, banned smoking
in public places, required uni-
versal pre-K, limited property
tax increases, required gov-
ernment in the sunshine, and
capped state taxes. All were
issues that Tallahassee politi-
cians refused to address.
Those same lobbyists and
special interests that block
popular measures in
Tallahassee now want to
make it harder for the people
to petition for changes in the
law. They want to require a
super-majority vote of 60 per-
cent for the people to amend
the Constitution.
Their effort, Amendment 3
on this year's ballot, is noth-
ing more than a naked power
grab by the special interests
that dominate Tallahassee's
legislative halls.
The citizen's initiative
process is already extremely
difficult, but it is fair and the
only recourse the people have
when Tallahassee's special
interests block popular


issues. I know this from per-
sonal experience.
I served in the Legislature
for eight years. I watched
tobacco companies bury bills
banning smoking in restau-
rants and workplaces. I saw
legislation for smaller class-
rooms get killed in backroom
deals.
I know the hostility of most
legislators to term limits. I've
witnessed big business crush
efforts to raise the minimum
wage. I've seen how many
elected representatives dis-
like having to govern in the
sunshine. I've heard the gov-
ernment arguments against
capping homeowner's prop-
erty taxes.
None of these popular ini-
tiatives would have become
law if left to the Florida
Legislature. Each took an
impassioned group of
citizens petitioning their
cause onto the ballot to get
their issue decided by the vot-
ers.
Amendment 3's support-
ers argue they are simply rais-
ing the bar without taking
away the people's right to
decide. Under their logic,
Save Our Homes, universal
Pre-K and caps on the
amount of taxes the
Legislature can raise would
have never become law,


because each passed by a
simple majority vote of the
people, not by a super-major-
ity vote Amendment 3
requires.
The very Constitution we
live under today passed in
1968 by 55 percent.
If the special interests
behind Amendment 3 suc-
ceed, Florida will be the only
state to require a super-
majority vote for citizen ini-
tiatives.
Amendment 3 is nothing
more than a thinly veiled
insult to the voters of Florida.
It sends the message that the
majority of Floridians don't
know what is best for their
state, and that a minority of
voters should be allowed to
block what the majority
wants as law.
Floridians have a simple
choice on, Nov. 7. They can
either vote to trust the politi-
cians, lobbyists, and special
interests by voting for
Amendment 3, or they can
vote to trust the people by
voting against Amendment 3.
I say trust the people.

BY DAVID DUNN-RANKIN
GUEST COLUMNIST


Tallahassee is now consid-
ering whether it should deter-
mine our county budgets for
us. The Republicans' concept
of regulating how much
money counties can collect in
property taxes is a very bad
solution to a very real prob-
lem.
We have 67 counties in
Florida. Each county is in a
different phase of growth and
development. Each county
has different needs. Repu-
blicans in Tallahassee. appar-
ently think they understand
how to manage 67 counties'
needs better than locally
elected officials.
Each county has locally
elected commissioners
responsible to the citizens of
their county. If local citizens
are unhappy with local taxes,
they should simply vote the
rascals out. More state regula-
tion is not needed when we
have the power to toss out
local politicians.
In fairness to the
Tallahassee Republicans, they
are only responding to the
anger of their constituents. We
simply do not understand
what our local governments
are doing with the property
tax windfall.


Our local governments
have done a poor job of
explaining to us how our taxes
are being spent. Ask yourself a
simple question. Do you
understand why your city or
county set the property tax
rate at the current level?
Don't feel bad. No one
does. This communication
failure of our local politicians
is fueling anger and making it
necessary for Tallahassee to
consider yet more regulations.
Local governments should
be able to explain the budget
in plain English each year.
Almost everyone understands
that government spending is
likely to increase with infla-
tion and the need to keep up
with population growth.
If inflation is 3 percent and
population growth is 3 per-
cent, then government
spending may need to go up 6
percent.
We also should allow for
unfunded state and federal
mandates plus mandates
from the voters. Local 1-cent
sales projects, approved by
the voters, must be staffed
and operated once they are
built. As an example, this
means local government
spending might need to go up
9 percent a year to keep pace
with inflation, growth,
unfunded mandates and the


operation of 1-cent sales pro-
jects as those projects come
online.
Of course, there would be
exceptions to this general rule
of thumb. Our local govern-
ments could then explain
each item over the target to
the public so we could voice
our approval or disapproval.
We could then have some
confidence that the rise in
property taxes has some ratio-
nal basis.
The only official in
Sarasota, DeSoto or Charlotte
counties who has attempted
to explain why property taxes
increased this year is Craig
Coffey, the DeSoto County
administrator. In public
meetings and newspaper
columns, he talked about the
need to relieve overcrowding
at the jail and to fix specific
roads and bridges as just two
of the specific needs men-
tioned.
We need more communi-
cation from our local govern-
ments and less micromanag-
ing from Tallahassee. Just-
talk to us. Is that too much to
ask?

LET 'EM HAVE IT! Should Election Day be moved

to Sunday? Call us at 207-1111.

I'll bet their eyes were glazed, too


Jazzed up. About the arti-
cle, Dads get doughnuts and
bonding time" doughnuts
and cookies for breakfast?
What kind of nutritional mes-
sage are we sending the chil-
dren? Publix probably would
have donated orange juice
and individual cereal boxes if
requested. Yes, it's only one
day, but it's still no way to pro-
mote healthy food choices,
and I'm sure the teachers did-
n't appreciate trying to teach a
room full of students all
jazzed up from a doughnut
sugar high. Let's get on the
same wavelength here.
Not on board. This call is in
response to the school board
asking Gary Norris to take
back his resignation.
Absolutely they should not
ask him to take it back. I think
this was one of the best things
that could have happened.
He's probably a decent guy
and he just expected people
to get on board with him, but
there was zero communica-
tion .and you have to have
people behind you in order to
make change.
Thanks. The children's


fountain in downtown Venice
by the gazebo is the greatest
thing that's ever happened in
this town. I don't have any lit-
tle kids in my family, but I
drive by it a few times every
day on my way to work and
back again and it always
makes me smile. Those little
kids have so much fun. It's
just a great thing. Thank you
to anybodywho had anything
to do with it.
All yours. Why doesn't city
council just meet with the
owners of Sharky's, give them
a key to the city and say,
"Here, you own it now. Do as
you please. Nobody will stop
you from doing anything"?
And furthermore, I think that'
the city should give all the
policemen a gold badge of
honor and merit for the good
work keeping that one pris-
oner.
Unreformed. Some years
ago the Venice Taxpayers
League secured 2,000 Venice
citizens' signatures on a peti-
tion to allow a referendum
that would permit voters to
repeal the city's first large
annexation east of 1-75, the


Henry Ranch. Fearful that
their citizens would vote on
ending the annexation, the
city council found an obscure
law that prohibited this refer-
endum, then used city funds
to fight and stop the referen-
dum in court. Some weeks
ago, Sarasota County got tired
of the large annexations and
poor growth by Venice and
North Port. The county decid-
ed to have a referendum vote
of its own to give the county
more control over annexa-
tions. It was fearful that ,such
a referendum would pass
likely with the support of its
own residents. The city of
Venice called an emergency
meeting. The behavior of the
city council and the city attor-
ney at the meeting was pre-
dictable. They decided to use
city funds to fight the pro-
posed county referendum.
Fortunately, the law's: on the
county's side. When the city
realized this, it promised to
behave better on growth if
only the county would put off
the referendum. Has our city
council truly reformed and
now believes in quality


growth? Don't bet on that.
Weak MainStreet I have a
comment on the bike races. I
would like to know, after five
years of it not doing any good
for the downtown businesses,
if the city of Venice is going to
show any backbone and stop
it and listen to what the mem-
bers of the Venice MainStreet
want. They don't want the
bike races downtown. Take
the bike races and put them
down by the airport. Put them
down by Sharky's. Put them
somewhere where they're out
of the downtown district.
They don't belong in the
downtown district. Venice
MainStreet hasn't listened to
that. It hasn't listened to its
members. It shows no back-
bone whatsoever. All they
have to do is get a court
injunction, hire a lawyer and
stop the races. It should start
speaking up more, telling the
the city of Venice what they're
looking for, what they want to
accomplish, what they need
for the downtown business
district. Venice MainStreet


does absolutely none of that.
So, what kind of organization
is that?
Lights out. I've noticed
since I've been here in town,
60 to 70 percent of trucks and
vehicles that I see the run-
ning. lights, one of them is
always out. And I really don't
think that people know that
that's going on. Because most
people when they turn the car
on, they don't get out and
look at the front end of their
truck to see if the lights work.
I think that it may be a safety
hazard or may prevent a lot of
people from getting a ticket.
Also, I'd be curious of how
many responses you get back
saying that, "Yes, my running
light is out."
Singled out. This is about
the city council meeting con-
cerning the issue of home-
stead exemption and how the
privilege of claiming the
exemption is being abused by
many to the point where it is
costing millions of dollars in
revenue. Just taking an edu-
cated guess, there have to be


hundreds and hundreds that
are taking the exemption who
are not entitled to it. But the
most interesting comment
concerning the subject was
made by a local attorney who
not only said that the abuses
take place but was actually
covering up one particular
individual who had abused
the privilege. He mentioned
the name publicly and also
made us all aware of the fact
that this same person was a
member of the Venice
Taxpayers League. Talk about
politics at its worst. Seems
like the family of the individ-
ual deserves a public apology
for being singled out.
Something's rotten in this city
and it isn't only the dead fish
at the shores of paradise. We
should all be looking for away
to rectify the abuses of the
homestead exemption
instead of looking for an
opportunity to publicly state
the name of an individual
who may;have abused .the
privilege. We need better
stewardship in this town.

New breathalyzer, new problems


BYTOMMYMCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

If you thought the Intoxilyzer
5000 breathalyzer was a night-
mare, wait till you get aload of the
new and improved Intoxilyzer
8000.
"The problems with the 8000
dwarf the 5000's problems,"
Venice attomey Robert Harrison,
said, "there is no way you can say
these things are working."
Sarasota and Manatee coun-
ties started using the 8000 model
March 27.
Harrison said there have been
cases where no breath was blown
)- into the .machine, yet the
machine showed a breath result
(blood alcohol content) of .277 on
the printout. A level of .08 is the
legal limit for drivers.
"This is the single largest prob-
lem I have ever seen with the
breath machine," Harrison said.
At least 1.1 liters ofbreathmust
be blown into the machine for it
to offer reliable results, Harrison
said.
"If you have less that 1.1 liters,"
Harrison said, "it's not enough to
make any scientific analysis -
the results are garbage."
Firing back
Earl Vam, the assistant state
attomey who is defending the
breathalyzer litigation, said he
received a letter to the Sarasota
County Sheriffs Office from the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement.
"I haven't had much time to
look into it," Vam said, "but it is
something we are going to look at
further."

court rulings.
"I have never had more
ammunition to attack (breatha-
lyzer results)," Harrison said,
"than I have right now."


FDLE is responsible for testing
and monitoring all breathalyzers
in Florida. The SCSO operates the

The Venice Gondolier Sun
obtained a copy of the letter.
"I would like to assure you that
(the) software ... is operating as
written and programmed," Laura
D. Barfield, FDLE's Alcohol
Testing Program Manager, stated.
"The analytical functions of the
instrument are not affected by
this issue (blowing less than 1.1
liters) and the instrument contin-
ues to correctly analyze all breath
samples."
Barfield then admits that it is
only with a "unique and !pecilic
scenario" (blowing less than 1.1
liters) that the breath sample is
not reliable.

fall shy


BY KEN HAGGERTY
CORRESPONDENT

A capricious wind, five-
hour-plus rounds and a rule
infraction all led to a disap-
pointing day for Venice High's
Boys golf during Monday's
Class 2A-Region 5 Golf
Tournament at Vasari Coun-
try Club, Naples.
Despite a 20-1 regular sea-
son performance the best
in coach Marty Tarala's 18-
year tenure and a solid sec-
ond place at the Districts, the
Indians failed to qualify for
next week's Class 2A State
Tournament at the Fairwinds
Golf Course in Fort Pierce.
The alleged rule infraction,
which was overturned by the
appeals jury, involved a dis-
pute over a provisional ball
being played by Gulf Coast
High's Rob Thomgate.
Afterwards, Tarala was
adamant the ruling should
have gone the Indians' way
and couldn't hide his dismay
at the outcome.
"There are specific rules
about what to do (in that situ-
ation)," Tarala said. He added
if the rule had been applied as
it was supposed to, then
Thomgate would have been
disqualified, thus giving the
Indians second place.
In the end, the sorry sce-
nario led the Indians to third
place with a score of 320 and a
disappointing journey home:
Fort Myers was first at 313
while Gulf Coast scored 316.
While Brian Doyle 76
and tied for fifth overall -
considered the course, "man-
ageable," Eric Dobitsch (87)
and Billy Stevens (86) were
hard pressed to overcome the
Vasari's obstinate challenges
and were just glad their day
was done.
Hunter Burton put in a
rugged performance, coming
home with a 78, while Chris
Dobitsch was two strokes
back with 80.
For some, the tourney
proved too frustrating as
Sarasota High School's Steven
Loer was disqualified after
throwing his club, while
teammate Damien Hickel
scored a DNF after he ran out
of balls on the back nine. It
was a harsh ending for Loer,
who came into the tourna-
ment with the lowest qualify-
ing score at 69.

Lady golfers repeat as region champs,


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice High girls golf
machine is putting together a
nice little run.
The Lady Indians have
only lost one dual over the
past two years. They avenged
a third place showing in the
2005 district tournament by
winning this year's event.
And on Monday, they suc-
cessfully defended the Region
5 title.
Venice, coached by Shari
Lindsey and Larry Sandburg,
will be heading to the Class
2A State Finals for the second
straight year.
Monday saw the Lady
Indians win the region cham-
pionship in business-like
fashion. They collectively got
the job done, brushing aside
windy conditions at the
Manatee County Golf Course
in Bradenton.
Led by medalist Casey
Kennedy and Crystal Smith,
Venice had a team score of
316. That effort was eight
strokes better than runnerup
Manatee's 324.
The top two teams out of
the six team regional advance
to the-state finals, which will
be held next Tuesday and
Wednesday at The Saints
course in Port St. Lucie.
Venice had a lot of breath-
ing room as far as a state
berth was concerned, as third
place Ida Baker out of Cape
Coral was way up at 359.
Manatee was led by Maria
Ronderos' 72.
Sophomores Kennedy and
Smith burned the trail for the

Lady Indians Monday.
Kennedy fired a two-under
par 70, while Kennedy shot a


lean 75.
"It's my best score here,"
Kennedy said of her round.


"I've been working harder at
my game on my putting,
my swing. Basically, I know


what I'm doing. I know how'
to fix it whensomething goes.
wrong. I've learned how -t''
relax and talk to the other
girls, but to focus when it's my
turn to hit."
Kennedy had three birdies
and one bogey on the day.
Smith had two birdies to
help her through the day.
"It was really windy," she
said. "I couldn't use my dri-
ver. The wind would take it.
My 3 wood came through."
Junior Katie Kennedy,
Casey's sister, came
through with a very
respectable round of 85.
"My dad was. .'there
cheering for me thi whole
time," she said. "He knows
my swing."
Captain Megan Clipse
was right behind Katie
with an 86. She started out
rough but six pars in a row
kept her in the game.
"I pushed the ball to the
right," said the senior. "I
was in the water a lot. My
chipping saved the day;
Senior Helene Gagliardi
also teed it up Monday.
Although her 90 didn't go
toward the team score, she
will be there next week in
Port St. Lucie.
All the girls are excited
about returning to states,
where the top 16 schools will
face off.
'"None of us played that
good last year," said
Casey Kennedy of the
event played in Vero
Beach. "This y ar, a top
five and I'll be happy."

Tre Smiths big pla stands tall against Gators


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR
Tre Smith has been dying to to be a prime-
time player for the Auburn Tigers this season.
The Venice Venice High standout has got-
ten a few chances to shine at running back,
but his playing time has been limited as guys
like Kenny Irons and Brad Lester have
received more opportunities.
Smith, a super team player, is always eager
to contribute, no matter the role.
Smith came through in a big way Saturday
against the No. 2 Florida. He scored the go-
ahead touchdown on special teams as the
Tigers upset the Gators, 27-17.
Florida held a 17-11 lead in the third quar-
ter. Jerraud Powers blocked a Florida punt and
Smith returned it 15 yards for a touchdown.
The play served as the game-winner as
Auburn led from that point on.
Smith's play has been nominated for the
"Pontiac Game Changing Performance" com-
petition. The weekly winner is revealed on
ESPN's Halftime Report Thursday night.
Auburn (6-1), now ranked eighth, has its
Homecoming this Saturday against Tulane (2-
4). Smith is. on the cover of this weekend's
Auburn Football Illustrated program.
The following Saturday, the Tigers are at Ole
Miss.
Smith is Venice High's all-time leading
rusher, graduating in 2002. He was a huge part
of the unbeaten state championship team of
2000.
Tre Smith's cousin Garrett Meyer-- is a
junior playing cornerback and special teams
at Maryville College in Tennessee. Meyer
recovered an onsides kick in the Fighting
Scots' 20-14 victory over Ferrum Oct. 7.

Auburn senior running back Tre Smith does the "Tiger Walk" outside Jordan-Hare Stadium last
Saturday before the big SEC game against the Florida Gators. Smith, a Venice High product,
scored the deciding touchdown as the Tigers won.


Maryville lost to Christopher Newport; 48-31,
this past Saturday. The Scots saw their record
drop to 3-4.
Brad Allen, a 2004 Venice High graduate,
had the first catch of his career at Vanderbilt
University.
A sophomore tight end, Allen hauled in a
ball for a 21-yard reception as the
Commodores upset previously No: 16 ranked
Georgia, 24-22, in Athens.
Vanderbilt is 3-4 on 'the season, but have

Outside help sought to hire new school super


-BY RACHEL BROWN HACKNEY
,PELICAN PRESS

Sarasota County School
Board members have agreed
,to employ an outside search
-firm to- help ,find. a replace-
ment for Superintendent Gary
-Norris, who. announced his
resignation in a letter dated
:Sept. 21../:., ,-
The con-
Jsensus was
reached at
.the board's
regular
meeting on
Pct. 3 but
,not before
,outgoing
_board mem-Norris
zber Laura r
Benson
.strongly urged the other mem-
i bers to try to persuade Norris
to change his mind.
Vice Chairman Frank
Kovach recommended the
employment of a search firm.
"I don't believe we have the
staff that we had the last time
to even attempt to do this our-
selves," he said.
Benson said she had "really
struggled with some of the lan-
guage within the letter" Norris
had written the board, espe-
cially his reference to
"unimaginable roadblocks in
Sarasota County" that will
continue to impede the imple-
"mentation of the NeXt
Generation Learning strategic
education plan he proposed
after becoming superinten-
dent in April 2004.
Bugs worked out
Factors she might have
considered roadblocks had
been removed, Benson said.
For example, she pointed
out that a presentation earlier
in the meeting by Barbara
Chomko, the district's execu-
tive director of high school
education, had shown princi-
pals "feeling a different
empowerment" regarding
high school reorganization,
after a retreat the principals
recently held with Chomko
and a consultant assisting the
district--with- high- school
reform.
Further, Benson said, the
board had addressed commu-
jnicarion problems.
"No%\ those bugs have been
worked out" through plans to
hire an additional staff person
to get information out to the
i parents and public in a timely
fashion, she said.
Then Benson pointed out
--that the volunteer organiza-
tion Citizens for Better Schools
Z1had held a press conference
Oct. 2 to discuss how it
planned to take a more active
role in fostering the imple-
mentation of local education
reform.
Among its goals, according
to a press release, are "to
become effective truth-tellers
of the real education issues"
and "to leverage our strength
in numbers and influence by
galvanizing the political and
educational institutions
S resulting in positive change for
Studentss"
s Now the community,
Benson said, is "absolutely
embedded in changing the
culture of this district."
"The only thing I hear that
I suggests (a roadblock
Remains) is that this board is
Already talking about hiring a
Replacement as though

(Norris) is gone or it's a done
deal," she said. "I think that as
a board, if we are committed
to doing the best thing for this
community with the right
people in the right place, then
the writer of (the NeXt
Generation Leartning Plan)
deserves to lead it.....
"Maybe it's the board


(that) has not made a com-
mitment to working with
what we have and is too will-
ing to spend money on
search firms and too willing
to take the risk to slow things
down without having a very
mature conversation about
what brought us to this point
in the first place."


The best thing
Board member Kathy
Kleinlein told Benson she
appreciated her comments,
but it was up to Norris to do
what was best for him. Then
she agreed with Kovach that
the staff had too many respon-
sibilities to take on the search
for a new superintendent.


Kovach pointed out how
hard the criticism Norris had
had from the community had
been on his family.
"I personally believe that
what he is doing is the best
thing for Gary Norris and for
Gary Norris' family," she said.
Board Chairman Carol
Todd agreed with the proposal


for staff to seek three or four
search firms the board could
consider in hiring outside
help.
She added, "The worst
thing for this district is a gap."
The board had embraced
NeXt Generation Learning,
she said, "and will continue to
embrace it."

will be open for the monthly
Thursday evening stroll. Join
me atVenice Stationers for the
debut of my latest book,
"Venice History Illustrated,"
featuring the paintings of the
late Ilse Kern. Kern's watercol-
or paintings capture Venice as
only she could, reflecting the
love she had for this special
place. Painted during her
years in Venice, they reflect
the heart of the city's historic
buildings as well as the color-
ful beaches, the Gazebo and
even the unique Venice beach
pavilion. To reserve signed
copies, call the store at 488-
6113.

Sun Fiesta
The last hurrah before the
Snowbirds return has always
been the annual Sun Fiesta. It

Centennial Park in downtown
Venice and continues
through Sunday. Oct. 21.
Sponsored by Women's
Sertoma of Venice, the fun
event will feature craft booths,
art works, fine art photogra-
phy by such folks as former
Venice Gondolier Sun News
Editor Pat Horwell, plenty of
refreshments, bed races and
more. It will be open Friday
and Saturday evening until 9
p.m. Stay for lunch and enjoy
fresh hamburgers and hot
dogs. Proceeds benefit
Sertoma and Sertoma bene-
fits Venice. It is a win-win for
everyone.

phers and artists got together
a few years ago, the Phartists
were born. Including artists
John Seerey-Lester, Suzie

the Dis-Oriented Express.
Scheduled Friday through
Sunday, Oct. 20-29, the festi-
val is on track to recall Key
West's history of shipwrecks,
pirates, rumrunners and even
the famed Overseas Railroad.
This event might not be
any more fun than the Sun
Fiesta but it should definitely
be different, if not much
stranger.
Fantasy Fest offers 10 days

costume contests and other
disorienting delights. The

Marching bands compete in Venice


STAFF REPORT

Venice High played
co-host to its first-ever
marching band compe-
tition Friday at Powell-
Davis Stadium.


Nine high schools partici-
pated (South Ft. Myers, North
Ft. Myers, Fort Myers,
LaBelle, Boca Ciega, Lemon
Bay, Manatee, Lakewood
Ranch, and Braden River).
Lakeland High's Marching
Dreadnaughts were crowned
grand champion.


In keeping with tradition,
the co-host Marching Indians
and North Port Marching
Bobtats played for the crowd
but didn't participate in the
competition.
The event was co-spon-
sored by North Port and
Venice high school booster


clubs.
"Normally it takes a year to
plan this kind of competi-
tion," said show coordinator
Dalene Johnson. "We did it in
60 days."
"What made this event
unique is that Venice and
North Port did it together. The


band boosters got together...
it was done all with volun-
teers. We had great feedback."
Proceeds will go back into
the co-host music programs.
The event was so successful
booster clubs plan to repeat
the competition again next
year, Johnson said.

LYNN REIFERT
(0OIMNIST

Parents of some public school chil-
dren recently received letters of notifica-
tion from school principals regarding a
plan of action. These students were
identified as needing additional remedi-
ation, based on local and state assess-
ments, in the area of reading or math,
possibly both.
The letter explained, "The goal of the
Florida Legislature and the Sarasota
County School District is for every stu-
dent to perform at or above grade level in
reading and mathematics. Each student
who does not meet specific levels of per-
formance in any of these areas must be
included in the school's Progress
Monitoring Plan (PMP)."
It continued, in bold print, to inform
or threaten, depending upon your per-
ception, "If the student's reading defti-
ciency is not remediated by the end of
the third grade, as demonstrated by scor-
ing at Level 2 or higher on the FCAT
assessment in reading for third grade,
the student MUST be retained. However,
a student MAY be retained prior to third
grade based on the district student pro-
gression policy."
According to the letter, the school will
provide additional testing and more


reading instruction. The school en-
courages the parents to "work closely
with the school staff to determine ways
to assist in meeting the district/state
proficiency requirements."
Teachers have been working at reme-
diating children who need extra help
since the beginning of time. They have
also been enlisting the help of parents,
asking them to read at home with their
children and to work onmath flashcards.
They haven't needed the State Legis-_
lature or the school district to tell them
to do this, or to back them up by requir-
ing retention for not passing a state
mandated test.
Teachers do need a different kind of
support. Remediation and parent assis-
tance are not as effective now as they
were in the past. Enlisting the parent's
help and spending more time at school
teaching reading or math to students
having trouble isn't going to produce the
expected results in most cases.
Why not? While attempting to reach
their goals, legislators have not looked
deeply enough to discover the real root
of the problem.
Society and family life have changed.
More time spent teaching reading and
math is not a solution when so many
children come to school emotionally
unprepared to learn.
Many parents today appear to find it
difficult to fulfill their true roles in their
children's lives. They are reluctant to dis-
cipline, perhaps partlybecause of feeling
guilty over their situations. They now
often side with their children when the
school needs to discipline them for not
following teacher instructions and being
disruptive in class.
Parents don't instruct their children to
respect teachers. Often they even
demonstrate a lack of respect for teach-
ers in front of their children. This under-
mines the teacher's authority and affects
the child's ability to learn.
The type of cooperation that needs to
occur between parents and teachers to


benefit the child just isn't happening.
News reports tell us children are
overindulged as a substitute for spend-
ing quality time with their parents. They
are given much, catered to and all their
problems are solved for them. In addi-
tion, the percentage of children going
back and forth between divorced par-
ents and living in single parent house-
holds has risen drastically over the years.
We cannot pretend this doesn't have
an effect on many children's abilities to
learn in our schools. Children are not
being taught to listen to and learn from
adults. Instead, they are learning to be in
charge and to manipulate adults.
k These conditions create roadblocks to
learning. Not listening to and respecting
adults, plus manipulating them to do
everything for you, plus having no set
limits, equals not developing the self-
control and self-confidence to learn.
Legislators are passing laws to put an
end to social promotion, moving chil-
dren to the next grade without grade
level skills. However, no amount of extra
time spent attempting to teach children,
who are not emotionally equipped to
learn, will change the current status.
If lawmakers could legislate respect
for teachers and improve the communi-
cation problems between parents and
children, and parents and teachers, they
could make a real difference. Perhaps
they could start by demanding free and
adequate, family counseling and support
services be made available in every
school,

more attention-getting -
than the steam engines that
drew trainloads of visitors to
the island city in the early
1900s.
Fantasy Fest began more
than 25 years ago as a way to
liven up the fall season on the
island locals nicknamed "Key
Weird" and it succeeded so
well that it's now internation-
ally recognized as the destina-
tion's premier annual festival.
Its uninhibited flair and light-
hearted spirit attract ever-larg-
er crowds of people eager to
shed their real-world person-
alities and live out their fan-
tasies on the island city's
quaint downtown streets.
For Key Weird on the Dis-
Oriented Express, Fantasy
Fest organizers encourage
participants to seek inspira-
tion from the sailors and
shipwreck salvors, madams
and madmen, pirates and
poets and decadent dreamers
that once inhabited Key West.
Costumes and parade floats
might be bizarre, bewitching
or downright bewildering -
portraying everything from
the shipwrecked to the shell-
shocked.
Fantasy Fest's express to
excess is to embark with a


Royal Coronation Ball to
crown the king and queen of
the masked madness. Sche-
duled for Friday, Oct. 20, the
coronation is to cap a two-
month fundraising effort by
candidates to benefit the Key
West-based AIDS Help Inc.
Wednesday, Oct. 25, even
dogs and cats can hop aboard
the Dis-Oriented Express
during the WKEY Pet Mas-
querade and Parade and
when pets dress like people
and people don fur and feath-
ers, the scenario can get dis-'
orienting pretty quickly.
Entrants in the quirky com-
petition range from canines
and felines to exotic birds and
even pot-bellied pigs. Strut-
ting their stuff on an ocean-
front stage, .they vie for prizes
in categories including the
best pet/owner look-alikes
and best adaptations of the
festival theme.

about Fantasy Fest and a
schedule of events, visit the

syfest.net or call (305) 296-

STAFF REPORT


The 2-year-old class at
Venice Nokomis United
Methodist child care center
learned about the letter "E"
for earthworm by making an
earthworm habitat.
Students in the 2-year-old
class layered the soil, placed
the soils in a -container and
then added the earthworms.


They then learned about
what to feed the earthworms
by putting in cut-up bagels,
apples and carrots. With a lit-
tle water, the preschool chil-
dren are enjoyed watching
the earthworms wiggle
through to their new home.
Hands on experience
With this type of experi-
ence and educational experi-


ments; the children will
have a lasting impression
about the habitat they creat-
ed.
During the learning exer-
cise, the little children learned
to nurture a living creature,
and they will be more
aware of the good work of cul-
tivating the soil that the
worms do in our outdoor gar-
dens.

Making fun of Halloween


DAVE BARRY


This classic Dave Barry column
was originally published Oct. 27,
1996.

I love Halloween. It re-
minds me of my happy child-
hood days as a student at
Wampus Elementary School
in Armonk, N.Y., when we
youngsters used to celebrate
Halloween by making decora-
tions out of construction
paper and that white paste
that you could eat. This is also
how we celebrated Columbus
Day, Washington's Birthday,
Lincoln's Birthday, Thanks-
giving, Christmas, Easter,
New Year's, Valentine's Day,
Mother's Day, Father's Day,
Armistice Day, Flag Day,
Arbor Day, Thursday, etc. We
brought these decorations
home to our parents, who by
federal law were required to
attach them to the refrigera-
tor with magnets.
That was a wonderful,
carefree time in which to be a
youngster or construction-
paper salesperson. But it all
ended suddenly one day -
I'll never forget it when the
Soviet Union launched the
first satellite, called "Sputnik"
(which is Russian for "Little
Sput"). Immediately, all the


grown-ups in America be-
came hysterical about losing
the Space Race, which led to a
paranoid insecurity about our
educational system, exp-
ressed in anguished newspa-
per headlines asking, "WHY
AREN'T OUR KIDS LEARN-
ING IN SCHOOL?" I wanted
to answer, "BECAUSE ALLWE
EVER DO IS MAKE DECORA-
TIONS OUT OF CONSTRUC-
TION PAPER," but I couldn't,
because my mouth was full of
paste.
But getting back to
Halloween: It's still one of the
most fun holidays of the year,
as well as one of the most tra-
ditional, tracing its origins
back more than 2,000 years to
the Druids, an ancient reli-
gious cult that constructed
Stonehenge as well as most of
the public toilets in England.
The Druids believed that one
night each year, at the end of
October, the souls of the dead
returned to the world of the
living and roamed from
house to house costumed as
Power Rangers.
And thus it is that to this
day, youngsters come to our
door on Halloween night
shouting, "Trick or treat!" Ac-
cording to tradition, if we
don't give the youngsters a
treat, their parents will sue us.
That's why most of us tradi-
tionally prepare for Hallo-
ween by going to the super-
market and purchasing ap-
proximately eight metric tons
of miniature candy bars,
which we dump into a big
bowl by the door, ready to
hand out to the hordes of
trick-or-treaters.
The irony, of course, is that
there are no hordes of trick-


or-treaters, not anymore. We
in the news media make
darned sure of that. Every
year we publish dozens of
helpful consumer-advice arti-
cles, cheerfully reminding
parents of the dangers posed
by traffic, perverts, poisoned
candy and many other
Halloween hazards that par-
ents would never think of if
we didn't remind them
("Have fun, but remember
that this year more than
17,000 Americans will die
bobbing for apples").
The result is that many
children aren't allowed to go
trick-or-treating, and the
ones who are allowed out
come to your house no later
than 4:30 p.m., wearing
reflective tape on their Power
Rangers costumes and trailed
at close range by their par-
ents, who watch you suspi-
ciously and regard whatever
candy you hand out as
though it were 'unsolicited
mail from the Unabomber.
So for most of Halloween,
your doorbell is quiet. This
means that you pass the long
night alone, hour after hour,
just you and the miniature
candy bars. After a while they
start calling seductively to
you from their bowl in their
squeaky little voices.
"Hey, Big Boy!" they call.
"We're going to waste over
here!"
As the, evening wears on
they become increasingly
brazen. Eventually they crawl
across the floor, climb up
your body, unwrap them-
selves and force themselves
bodily into your mouth.
There's no use hiding in the
bathroom, because they'll


just crawl under the door and
tie you up with dental floss
and threaten to squeeze
toothpaste in your eye unless
you eat them. At least that's
what they do to me. By the
end of the night, my blood
has the same sugar content as
Yob-Hoo.
But eating huge amounts
of candy allegedly purchased
for youngsters is only part of
the Halloween tradition. The
other part is buying a pump-
kin and carving it to make a
"jack-o'-lantern," which sits
on your front porch, a festive
symbol of the age-old truth -
first discovered by the Druids
that there is no practical
use for pumpkins.
Here's how to make a tradi-
tional jack-o'-lantern:
1. Cut a lid on top of the
pumpkin.
2. Pull off the lid and peer
down into the slimy, festering
pumpkin bowels.
3. Put the lid back on and
secure it with 200 feet of duct
tape.
(This is also the traditional,
'procedure for stuffing a
turkey.)
But however you celebrate
Halloween, make sure you
remember this important
safety tip: (IMPORTANT
SAFETY TIP GOES HERE).
Otherwise, you will not sur-
vive the night. I'd give you
more details, but right now I
need to do something about
these tiny Milky Ways crawl-
ing up my legs.
Dave Barry is taking a
leave of absence from writing
his weekly humor column.
His classic columns appear in
